Discuss the diagnostic procedures for osteoarthritis and how they contribute to diagnosis (ultrasound shows inflammation in the tendons of some of the joints, particularly those containing Bouchard’s nodes and xray indicates osteophytes in numerous joints in patients hands and narrowing of the joint space).

Osteoarthritis

MIMS online (2021).

Discuss the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis.

Describe the clinical manifestations of osteoarthritis (joint pain, swollen joints, Bouchard’s nodes, tender joints) and related these to the changes which occur in the musculoskeletal system.

Discuss the diagnostic procedures for osteoarthritis and how they contribute to diagnosis (ultrasound shows inflammation in the tendons of some of the joints, particularly those containing Bouchard’s nodes and xray indicates osteophytes in numerous joints in patients hands and narrowing of the joint space).

Explain why capaicin (applied topically 3 to 4 times per day) and ibuprofen 400mg is prescribed (3 times per day) and suitable for treating osteoarthritis. Outline mechanism of action and how these are usually administered.

What is the bank of the future look like and the implications of your vision for the types of risk the bank will be exposed to, and what would need to happen to ensure the effective management of these risks.

The future of bank risk management

‘Bank to the future’: the future of bank risk management

This assignment requires you to formulate a view about what is the bank of the future look like

and the implications of your vision for the types of risk the bank will be exposed to, and what would

need to happen to ensure the effective management of these risks.

Explain both how and why your choice varies by region, and how and why it has been affected by distance decay. Remember that geography, as an academic discipline, seeks to explain why things vary from place to place, not just describe how they do.

The Idea of the Map. Anne Godlewska.

Once you have selected your topic, you will then do research to see how each of the following geographic concepts affects or is related to your topic:

1. Regions

2. Cultural Landscape

3. Diffusion

4. Distance decay.

The first two concepts are covered in the first chapter of your textbook. Diffusion is covered in Chapter 8, Section 2 (page 484).

Distance decay refers to the fact that influence and interaction between locations decreases as the distance between them increases. As such, it has a significant influence on how things change as they diffuse away from their point of origin.

Be sure to address these specific geographic terms and concepts in your work. You don’t need to address them in this order, but you do need to address all of them.

You may use “subsets” of these definitions (e.g. contagious diffusion) if such subsets exist. Be sure to refer to your text and other reliable resources to ensure you completely understand these concepts.

You should be detailed in your treatment of these concepts – for instance, you should explain both how and why your choice varies by region, and how and why it has been affected by distance decay. Remember that geography, as an academic discipline, seeks to explain why things vary from place to place, not just describe how they do.

You will complete this project in 3 separate assignments: an annotated bibliography, an outline, and your final presentation. In this assignment, you will complete your outline.

Completing the project in separate assignments allows you to work your way up to the final presentation, and provides opportunity for feedback along the way.

Assignment Objective: Organize your thoughts and the main points of your research for your final presentation in outline format.

The required elements: Your outline should contain the following elements in this order:

I. The Introduction: This section previews your topic and the details you will cover in the body of your presentation. It should be very brief, but include:

A. The food, cuisine, invention or idea that you are going to discuss.

B. Why you chose this topic.

C. A preview of the regions where your topic has developed and then diffused to.

II. The Body (Content Sections): In the body, you must address how the four geographic concepts mentioned in the presentation instructions (regions, cultural landscapes, diffusion, and distance decay) relate to your topic.

A. Regions: Discuss the origin region or regions of your topic, with specific attention to the geographic qualities of the region that influenced the development of your topic.

B. Cultural Landscape: Discuss how the landscape in the region(s) described above have been shaped by the culture that gave rise to your topic, and how your topic might be reflected in that landscape.

C. Diffusion: Discuss how your topic has diffused from its origin. Where has it diffused to? What factors led to its diffusion there? What kind of diffusion has it experienced?

D. Distance Decay: Discuss how your topic has changed as it has diffused away from the region(s) of its origin.

III. The Conclusion Section: this section should contain four to six points that sum up the main points from the body of the outline.

Start your conclusion with one sentence summarizing some basic information about your topic.

Continue with a brief summary (1-2 sentences) about the important characteristics of its origin region(s).

Include a brief note about relevant cultural landscapes.

Include a brief summary (1-2 sentences) about the diffusion of your topic and the distance decay it experienced.

Wrap up the conclusion section with a closing note that provides brief information about why this topic was of interest to you, and a fact about your topic you found interesting.

IV. Reference section: This is not just the reference page; rather, referencing should occur throughout the outline as it will in your presentation.

Discuss the background or larger trend within African history in which you intend to locate your arguments (ex. The colonial period, the Atlantic Slave Trade, the independence era, etc…)

Discuss how your PRIMARY SOURCES relate to your SECONDARY SOURCES

Research Paper Proposal (10%):

In this assignment, you will be responsible for combing through the course reader (Documents from the African Past) & primary sources online (provided by instructor).

You must then select four, related PRIMARY SOURCES that pique your interest and around which you will ultimately construct your research papers.

Then, you will need to identify TWO (2) more related SECONDARY SOURCES that will provide context for and inform your research paper. This proposal should include the following information in independent paragraphs and should be at least 700 words:

Present your  that you have formed from a careful reading of the PRIMARY SOURCE materials you selected.

Discuss the background or larger trend within African history in which you intend to locate your arguments (ex. The colonial period, the Atlantic Slave Trade, the independence era, etc…)

Discuss the nature (ex. Author’s origin, purpose of the publication, publication dates, positionality of the writer) of your PRIMARY SOURCES

Discuss how your PRIMARY SOURCES relate to your SECONDARY SOURCES
