QUESTION 1: Examine the footnote that appears at the bottom of the Nutrition Facts panel in Illustration 4.2 in the textbook. The footnote states, “Percent Daily Values are based on a 2000 calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs.” Compare the Daily Values for each nutrient in the two columns (2,000- versus 2,500-calorie diet). The Daily Values for which nutrients increase along with an increase in calories? Why do you think some nutrients increase along with an increase in calories and others do not? (100 words)

Tissue Concept Map
Create a concept map of your choice; you can do this on a word document, PowerPoint, Adobe, Paint, or Hand-drawn. If you are unsure ask your instructor for other options if applicable. There is an example of a concept map at the end of this document for reference.
The concept map needs to include:
The four primary tissue types
The function of each primary tissue type
All subtypes of each primary tissue
The function of each subtype
An example of where you would find each subtype in the body
A histological image or drawing of each subtype –
A histological image is what the tissue type would look like under a microscope.
In addition to the concept map answer the following questions:
What are the steps involved in tissue repair? Explain the process of tissue repair.
Some tissues in the body regenerate or repair very well whereas others do not regenerate at all.
Pick one tissue type or subtype that regenerates very well and explain why it does.
Pick one tissue type or subtype that regenerates very poorly and explain why it does not regenerate well.
Complete additional research on the topic as necessary, ensuring to cite and reference all material in APA forma
Details when anthropologists become involved in international development projects.
The textbook chapter this week described some of the details when anthropologists become involved in international development projects. Are there situations in which it is acceptable to try to alter a group’s cultural values in order to promote changes in health, nutrition, or women’s rights? Or, do you think it is inappropriate for outsiders to demand change? Do you think it is possible to achieve goals, such as improved nutrition, without pressuring groups to change their values and beliefs? Refer to the textbook for your answers.
Based on your answers to the previous set of questions, assuming there are 100 identical firms in the widget industry, construct a table showing the industry supply curve. Then, explain what you expect will happen over time to the number of firms in the industry and the equilibrium industry price of widgets. Your response should be at least 75–150 words (1–2 paragraphs) in length, including the table.
This is a discussion question so no title is needed.
In the argument chapter, you learned about expressed arguments (overt arguments attempting to persuade the audience towards a point of view) and implied arguments (arguments that appear on the surface not to be arguments but actually seek to persuade the audience of a point of view or views). For this DQ, provide a specific example from the media of an expressed argument and an implied argument and answer the following questions:
What is the expressed argument you identified? What specific argument does the author make? What evidence does the author use to support his or her claims?
What is the implied argument you identified? What specific argument does the author make? What evidence does the author use to support his or her claims?
Why is it important to understand expressed and implied arguments?
How might you use your understanding of expressed and implied arguments when drafting your first essay in this course?
Note: You may use visual arguments such as photos and pictures, but you will still need to explain your rationale for why you believe the author is making a specific argument.
Be sure to cite all sources used to compose your answer. Format your in-text citations and reference list entry according to APA Style.

2nd part-“The Truth About Haiti”
In “So Brutal a Death,” Edwidge Danticat describes her reaction to the murder of George Floyd: the image of these police officers squeezing the life out of Floyd might serve as a metaphor for the way U.S. Administrations have, for generations, dealt with the countries many of us come from—through invasions, occupations, wars, the buttressing of dictators, and the removal of democratically elected governments, among other tactics.
Can you find anything from your reading of James Weldon Johnson’s 1920 description of the US occupation of Haiti (“The Truth About Haiti”) to support what Danticat says above? Please use specific examples.
