Towards zero carbon: achieving 100% renewable energy power generation

Propose how, using renewable energy technology, the UK might realistically move to a ‘zero carbon’ economy by 2040.

i) Firstly, determine the current UK non-renewable energy consumption (e.g. gas, oil, coal) used for industrial and domestic heating and transport and some of our electrical generation and their carbon emissions.

ii) Secondly, determine the current UK renewable and low-carbon energy production. (By the ‘UK’ is meant England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and the UK’s coastal waters including the Channel Isles and Isle of Man). The difference between i) and ii) is what needs to be currently replaced by additional renewable energy and/or by changes in life style and implementation of any new advances in technology that might reduce carbon emissions. However, agriculture is also a major producer of CO2 and CH4, so some additional capacity/carbon capture for offsetting these emissions is also needed. Air transport emission are another area of concern which you may like to mention. Your main task is then to decide how and what additional renewable energy technology can be deployed realistically throughout the UK in order to achieve the zero-C goal. Different areas of the UK will suit particular renewable energy technologies. Consider, for example, wind, solar and, where appropriate, bio, hydro and tidal energy. You may include some new nuclear power, but bear in mind its long build time and contentious safety issues may preclude significant use. You also need to estimate how much renewable energy these technologies could produce. Just describing where they might be deployed will limit your marks. Some technologies can be deployed in the same area to reduce land-take (e.g. bio or solar might be possible under wind turbines). Do not forget the urban environment, which is also suitable for some renewable energy generation technologies. Be careful when discussing transport because, for example, moving vehicles off fossil fuel derived energy onto battery power means that more renewable electricity needs to be generated for charging purposes. Structure: Your essay will draw upon reliable academic, governmental and specialist technological sources which will be appropriately referenced and cited, and include diagrams, figures, calculations etc. as appropriate. Avoid too much generic material. Assume the reader is acquainted with renewable energy technology. It will contain a brief introduction and conclusion and other sectional headings to guide the reader.

Jackson v. Power

Research the case of Jackson v. Power, and provide arguments for and against questions provided. The complete case can be found at the following link: https://www.courtlistener.com/opinion/2604122/jackson-v-power/ It is important to clarify the exact issue that we have been asked to resolve. Jackson has conceded, for purposes of this appeal, that Dr. Power was not an employee of FMH [the hospital], but an independent contractor employed by respondent Emergency Room, Inc. (ERI), and that ERI and FMH are separate legal entities. Traditional rules of respondeat superior are, therefore, inapposite. Jackson also makes no claim that FMH was itself negligent in its selection, retention, or supervision of Dr. Power. Consequently, we have no occasion to consider the doctrine of corporate negligence. Jackson asks us to resolve only whether a hospital should be vicariously liable, as a matter of public policy, for the negligence or malpractice of an independent contractor/physician, committed while treating a patient in the hospital’s emergency room, under theories of (1) enterprise liability; (2) apparent authority; or (3) non-delegable duty. The court struggles to apply the concepts of enterprise liability, ostensible or apparent agency, agency by estoppel, and nondelegable duty to what is essentially a simple question: Who should bear the burden of the negligence that cost a 16-year-old both his kidneys? Phrased another way, the question could be stated as: Is it fair to conclude that a hospital should bear some responsibility for the quality of care that is rendered within its walls, regardless of what the unseen contractual relationships may be? Rather than attempt to conform the facts to awkward principles, the court analogized to a case involving Alaska Airlines. Just as the airline had a duty to provide safe transport to its passengers regardless of behind-the-scenes maintenance contracts with other firms, so too does the hospital have a duty to provide safe medical care to its emergency patients. Questions: 1. Does this make good public policy? 2. For example, if a hospital contracts with an organization such as ERI to provide emergency department physicians, and if the contract includes a provision to the effect that the hospital has no control over the physicians and that ERI alone may choose, credential, schedule, and supervise the services of those physicians, is it fair to hold the hospital liable? 3. Is such a “no control” provision valid? 4. Should it determine the outcome of the case?

 LEH 352- Latin American Literature of Violence and Power

Read it carefully. It centers on a quote, taken from The Hydra Head by Carlos Fuentes. Although we have not read his works directly, many concepts, thoughts and ideas within this quote are applicable to our course this semester. Here is the quote: “We sought a place where we might be masters, not slaves. But one is master of himself only when he has no slaves. We did not know how to be masters, without new slaves, so we ended up by being executioners, in order not to be victims. We found victims to escape being victims. Each of us looks at the other and sees only his own suffering in the eyes of the enemy. To reject the others’ suffering, inevitably a mirror image of our own, [leads to] our only recourse, violence… power knows itself to be temporary,[so] it is always cruel.” Although this quote was taken from a book we did not read this semester, it presents many ideas about the books we did read over the short winter semester. In a three page well thought out essay, explain how this dynamic of domination/oppression (master/slave) is present in Bel Canto and News of a Kidnapping. In your essay, you must use both texts. Here are some more details. To complete this assignment, explain how this dynamic of domination/oppression (master/slave) is present in each of the texts you have selected. Since this quote seems to foreground violence and victimization as an integral part of the domination and oppression relationship, you might want to mention its presence. Violence and victimization many times accompany suffering and predation. These elements often surface when there is an absence of mediating structures, such as government, police, military, church, families, education, etc. So reflect upon the situations you have encountered during this short session embodying this master/slave dynamic. How you decide to organize all these thoughts in this essay is up to you and your unique writing style, but just be sure it is written in MLA format with an Introduction, Body and Conclusion. There should also be in text citations and a Works Cited page. Please remember what is considered a well written essay. Here is a brief breakdown of the essay’s parts. The introduction is first and is filled with general statements and information about violence, power, victimization or other related ideas of your choosing. At the end of this first section, you become very specific about what you are actually going to write about. This is the very important thesis statement. Make sure yours is related to the quote in some way, and then use the books as support for your essay’s main idea(s). In the body section, each book should appear. Since you have a strong thesis in the introduction, use this section for examples and support with a demonstrated knowledge of each book chosen. Employ multiple in text citations as a concrete writing technique highlighting your essay’s argumentative strength. Review all critical readings for quotes to deepen your personal thoughts and comments. The Conclusion is just that. It’s the end of your essay. It is a brief restatement in different words of the thesis statement and main ideas of the body section. Since it should summarize your submission’s main points and leave the reader with a sense of now knowing what your thesis statement was all about, it should be clear, precise and creative. Good luck! Make sure you consult MLA for the correct format.

Language, Identity & Power

Critical linguists (e.g. Fairclough, 1989, 1995, Van Dijk, 1989, Wodak, 2011) argue that the media has the power to represent, construct and challenge particular identities. They function ideologically in their production of meanings and their construction of power relations; selecting what to make salient or what to silence. They therefore have the power to mediate and represent events and people in particular ways. Drawing on recent research that has critically analysed the representation of a particular identity/ies e.g. a nation/community/person (e.g. immigrant groups; bankers; a global leader/celebrity), discuss: how these representations have been constructed in language and discourse in the media; why a critical analysis of the particular issue is important; and how these representations may influence public ideology.

Also critically discuss the advantages and limitations of critical discourse analysis. Word length: 4,000 words plus a list of references, correctly presented (list of references is not included in the word count) TALK ABOUT THE BELOW (ACCORDINGLY): -BREXIT -DONALD TRUMP -LGBT -VARIOUS CAMPAIGNS: AGAINST KILLING WHALES IN JAPAN – RACISM -ROYAL FAMILY

Does the financial sector have too much power in Canada?

 Your research paper is worth 20 pts. Length: minimum 1000 words (excluding title page and bibliography), typed (12 pt. font, Times New Roman, 1.5 spaces), minimum 6 sources (at least one of which must be a scholarly book or journal article. Submit a digital copy of the paper. Use APA format. ANY EVIDENCE OF PLAGIARIASM IN THE PAPER WILL RESULT IN A GRADE OF “0.” Each paper should involve a political analysis of the topic you have chosen, an analysis that draws on concepts, perspectives, ideas you have studied in this course. You should take a strong position in your paper, since you will be asked to defend this viewpoint during the debate. Your position/ purpose must be clearly stated in the last sentence of the introductory paragraph. The paper should have the following components: 1. Introduction The introduction should contain… a) a background to the topic (i.e., one that provides a focused and relevant description to help situate the reader). This background should lead up to a… b) statement of purpose (i.e., the main argument/ thesis of the paper) that is explicit and focused. This statement is usually the last sentence of the introduction (e.g., “This paper argues/examines/seeks to demonstrate…, etc.) 2. Development Before beginning the development, you should provide a transition paragraph that tells the reader how you intend to develop your ideas. This short paragraph should give a structure or outline of your supporting arguments. This paragraph is followed by the development, which provides evidence (facts, quotes, supporting arguments) to support the thesis set out in your introduction. Your purpose in the development is to analyse, not merely describe or provide factual information. You should thus make an attempt to integrate political science concepts, theories or perspectives that you have learned in the course. Pay particular attention to the organization, development and coherence of ideas. Be sure to link your sentences/paragraphs by using appropriate transitions. You must use in-text references to support your arguments and to show the extent of your research. For referencing format consult the library’s web page (see “citation styles”). 3. Conclusion The conclusion synthesizes the main arguments of the paper. Refer to your purpose in the introduction and show how your research has supported it. Do not introduce new ideas in the conclusion. 4. References The references are listed on a separate page (entitled “References”); it follows an appropriate referencing style and lists only sources that are cited in the paper. Read Carefully! (Part of the evaluation will depend on how carefully you follow these guidelines!) 1. Use scholarly prose. Research papers have a formal and succinct style. Do not use contractions. Avoid personal pronouns as well as biased and emotive tone. No editorializing. 2. Vary your sentences (length and syntax). Use appropriate transitions between sentences and between paragraphs. Strive to achieve coherence and unity of ideas in your writing. 3. DEVELOP ONLY ONE MAIN IDEA PER PARAGRAPH. A new idea requires a new paragraph. 4. Be sure that every source referenced in your paper is listed in the “References” section at the end of your paper. To avoid plagiarism, credit authors with any ideas you have borrowed by providing in-text citations (both quoted and paraphrased material must be properly cited). Sources of all statistical information must be provided; something that is commonly known need not be cited. Vary your sources; do not always quote from the same source and do not introduce your quotes the same way every time (e.g., “the author writes/maintains/argues…,” “according to…”). If a quote is longer than four lines, separate it from the rest of the paragraph, single space, reduce font and leave wider margins (do not use quotation marks when a quote is set off from the paragraph). 5. Do not rely too much on quotes; a research paper is not simply a pastiche of quoted material loosely tied together with connecting sentences.
