Discuss whether Israel’s war in Gaza is a just war.

Imagine terrorists targeting Miami. Now think of thousands of missiles raining down on Miami and neighboring cities every year — for more than a decade. What would America do? Is there the slightest doubt that the president would order a strike to destroy the missiles? Absolutely not. One missile hitting the homeland would rightly spark an overwhelming American military response. Yet this is the reality that Israel faces every day. The jihadist group Hamas, categorized as a terrorist organization by both the United States and the European Union, has been using Gaza — self-governing since 2005, when Israel withdrew its forces and citizens — as a giant base for terror. Israeli cities like Ashkelon, Kiryat Malachi and Ashdod are frequent targets of these attacks — in \"normal\" years, Hamas fires hundreds of rockets at southern Israel. Schools and houses have had to be reinforced against attacks, the people highly trained to take cover in myriad shelters the moment the rocket alarms...

Assignment Questions for Euthyphro by Plato

Week 1                                   Reading Questions for Euthyphro by Plato Socrates claims that he wants to become Euthyphro’s pupil. What does Socrates say are his reasons for wanting to do so? Socrates poses the question whether “the pious” is loved by the gods because it is pious, or whether the pious is the pious because it is loved by the gods. What does he mean by this question? Which examples does he use to make his meaning clear? What is wrong with thinking of prayer and sacrifice as a kind of business relationship between humans and gods? How does this attempt at a definition bring the argument back in a circle to where it began? Week 2                                   Reading Questions for Apology by Plato What is the accusation brought by the new accusers, as represented by Meletus?

Understanding Social Identity, Power, and “Otherness”

Assignment Summary:In the past couple of weeks, we have engaged in many discussions to help us explore sociological ways of understanding social identity, power, and “otherness.” We have explored how group identities are formed socially and interdependently. We have explored how dominant and subordinate groups function within society – their power, authority, and placement within hierarchies. We have also discussed the role of stereotypes and single stories in perpetuating inequality and “othering.” For this 5-page argumentative research essay, you will choose a social group / social identity that faces issues we have read about and discussed in class, such as otherness, domination, stereotypes, and single stories. The group you choose for this essay could be one that you already belong to, a group with which you are unfamiliar, or a group with which you only have a stereotypical or incomplete story. You will come up with research questions to develop your knowledge about the group and the causes and effects of the problems...

After researching peer reviewed articles that discuss US traffic issues in general, you may discover that the metro system in the District of Columbia is underfunded and underutilized.
