Compare the discussion of the Form of the Good in Platos Republic, sections 504509, with the Utopians outlook, as described in Book Two of Utopia, on goods and goodness.

Compare the discussion of the Form of the Good in Platos Republic, sections 504509,
with the Utopians outlook, as described in Book Two of Utopia, on goods and goodness.
How does Socrates attempt to explain ultimate goodness, and why does he seem reluctant to identify it with either pleasure or knowledge? How do the Utopians think about knowledge and pleasure, and are they more likely to identify ultimate goodness with one or the other, or both, or neither? need to get citations from these 2 books with specific sections/chapters mentioned above for each one.

What should be the purpose of education for African people in America?

You will prepare a critical analysis of Whither Now and Why and one other of the speeches/essays from Dr. Du Bois’s text by answering the prompt questions listed below. Your reviews are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, December 7, 2018. They should be delivered, in hard copy, to my office (Founder’s Library, room 319) or to the office of our Administrative Assistant, Ms. Donald’a Gaddy (room 311). INCLUDE THIS SHEET AT THE FRONT OF YOUR PAPERWhither Now and Why [3 pages, minimum]” What is the relationship between legal desegregation and cultural/social integration, according to Du Bois? How do you think the two concepts should relate to each other with regard to education in Black America?
” What does Du Bois see as the proper relationship between Africans in America and the continent of Africa, including African history and culture? What impact on learning should integrating content on Africana history and culture into curriculum and instruction aspire to?
” What should be the purpose of education for African people in America? How does your current experience at Howard highlight some of the challenges that Du Bois raises in this regard in his remarks/essay?One Additional Essay of Your Choice [3 pages, minimum]
” Describe three (3) themes that Du Bois explores in his address. For each theme, describe how the issue raised continues to pose a challenge for education in Black America. For at least one of the themes, relate Du Bois’s observation to the specific circumstances and/or challenges of education at Howard University.

The dangers of technology

light of recent events such as FB allowing a British data mining firm to harvest the personal information of over 50 million users without their knowing, and the spreading of fake news during the 2016 electionWrite a five-paragraph essay on the topic:Will we become victims of our own technology to the point of social breakdown, or will we as a society in this digital age be able to protect ourselves?To prepare, jot down the main points of the article so that you can refer to them in your essay.Essays should have a focused thesis intro and have no fewer than five paragraphs and be about 500 words in length.

Consider the pedigree chart showing the inheritance of hemophilia in the family and descendants of Queen Victoria.

Assignment 4 Pedigree charts and Genetic testing 1) Consider the pedigree chart ( provided in learning activity 1.4) showing the inheritance of hemophilia in the family and descendants of Queen Victoria. Queen Victorias third child, Alice, passed hemophilia on to the German and Russian imperial families.
Alice had six children, one of whom had hemophilia. Her only son., Fred , died at the age of three after a fall. Of her five daughters, two were carriers of the recessive gene.
One of those heterozygous daughters, Alix, married Tsar nikolas 11 of Russia. The recessive gene was thereby introduced into the Russian imperial family.
Alix and Nikolas had five children: Olga, Tatiane, Marie, Anastasia, and alexis. Alexis, their only son, was often in severe pain as a child because of the bleeding into joints that occurred. But alexis dis not die from hemophilia. At the age of 14 he was executed along with his four older sisters and his parents. None of his sisters had any children, so their genotypes are not known.
what is the probability that Anastasia was heterozygous for the hemophilia gene? What is the probability that she was homozygous recessive? What is the probability that she was homozygous dominant?
If had lived and had married and had children with a normal, purebred woman, what are the chances that his daughter would have hemophilia? What are the chances that his son would have hemophilia?
In 1995 a man by the name of Eugene Romanov claimed that he was a grandson of Nikolas IIs youngest daughter, Anastasia,whose body had never been recovered. He claimed to share both the last name,Romanov, and the disease of hemophilia with the royal Familys lineage. He claimed that Anastasia was not executed but was raised by a farmer and late married and gave birth to a daughter, his mother. Assuming that Eugenes argument was true, what were the likely genotypes of his mother and grandmother if neither had hemophilia? What were the likely genotypes of his father and grandfather if neither had the disease? Could Eugenes argument be true? Why or why not? 2) The condition known as rickets in humans causes bones in its victims. To be abnormally soft. Rickets in children can cause bone deformities. Usually ,rickets is caused by a dietary lack of vitamin D, calcium, and phosphorus; rickets is, therefore, not usually a genetic condition. How ever one form known as vitamin D resistant rickets is caused by a dominant allele located on the X chromosome. The pedigree chart in figure 1.10 shows the inheritance of the genetic form of rickets through three generations of a family.Figure 1.10 Pedigree chart: inheritance of Genetic form of rickets

Explain your reasoning?b) what is the genotype of the parental male (#1)? Explain your reasoning?C) Explain why individual #8 has rickets, has three sons who so not who do not have rickets.d) what is the genotype of individual #4? Explain your reasoning.e) Individual #10 wonder why he does not have rickets, but his brother and sister both have the disease. Explain how this situation is possible.3) Larry and his older brother, Harry, have just found out that their father has been diagnosed with Huntington disease. Larry is 22 years old and Harry is three years older than Larry. Huntington disease is an incurable disorder that causes a slow progressive deterioration of the brain, resulting in death. Symptoms appear in the affected individual between the ages of 30 and 50 and they do not improve. Huntington disease is an autosomal dominant disorder for which a genetic screening test has been developed. That test can reveal with 100 percent certainty whether or not the person will develop the disease. Larry is still single,but Harry is married and he and his wife are expecting their first child. In your opinion, should Larry have the screening test for Huntington disease? Why or why not? Should Harry have test done? Why or why not?4) Cynthia is 42 years old and is pregnant with her third child. Routine genetic screening conducted 18 weeks into the pregnancy showed an abnormal result that may indicate that the baby has down syndrome. Cynthia is being encouraged to consider amniocentesis, which could either confirm down syndrome or yield normal result. Amniocentesis is not required in your opinion, should Cynthia proceed with amniocentesis? Why or why not? If she does agree to amniocentesis and the results indicate that the fetus does have Down syndrome, what should Cynthia do?
