Status of Shark Stocks

There are about 406 recognized species of extant sharks and as one might expect (based on the fact that they comprise 8 orders), these fishes are a diverse group regarding their biological characteristics. As a renewable natural resource important to a wide user group, the sustainability of shark populations is an important socioeconomic and environmental issue. Over the past several decades there has been an appreciable debate (not always scientific) regarding this issue, and during said time many species of sharks have been placed on a variety of conservation lists that raise notice of species imperilment. Both sides of the aforementioned debate are represented by strong lobbies that attempt to influence political decisions that in turn determine how governmental resources are allocated. And, based on a realization that misallocated funding jeopardizes other important initiatives that compete for funding, it is critical that political decisions be based at least in part on sound science.
In this assignment you will play the role of a Congressional Science Aid whose duty it is to research scientific topics and provide summary information and advice to the Congressperson you are assigned to. Although he is an idiot who can’t think his way out of a paper bag, your Congressman (Congressman Jingles) is smart enough to know that in the future he may have to cast another vote directly or indirectly related to shark conservation. And although rigorous science doesn’t always rule the day regarding such votes, Congressman Jingles likes to appear as if he knows what he’s talking about.
With the above in mind, your assignment is to research the aforementioned scientific “debate” regarding the imperilment of shark populations and species and provide Congressman Jingles a technical overview (with citations) of each side of the issue (i.e., sharks are imperiled vs. sharks are not imperiled). This overview should be concise, well-written, informative, and “balanced” regarding both sides of the issue. Then, under the heading, “Informed Opinion,” you should state which side of this debate seems to be most strongly supported by sound science and in doing so you should discuss the scientific strengths and weaknesses of each position. Lastly, the Congressman likes to know where his constituency falls regarding issues he confronts. And so, under the heading, “Probable Lobbies,” you are to list various groups (the more the better), institutions, and industries that will likely support each side of this issue.
To get you started, the “good” Congressman has given you some papers which he has been alerted to (see list provided at the end of this document). However, being the professional that you are, you realize that a literature search is in order to gather what is needed to carry out the assignment.

Are we responsible for being obese?

The term “obese” is often used closely with the term “overweight.” One has to be overweight first before going on to be obese. Both of these terms are used to refer to one’s weight in proportion to one’s height. Frazao (1999) discussed who is responsible for one’s weight. Education on weight and obesity is the most important tool that people can arm themselves with. According to experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one’s health is dependent on the ratio of height to weight. Obese and overweight refer to ranges that are well above the acceptable ratio. The CDC argues that people who are in this range are at a higher risk of having health issues or being attacked by certain ailments. The ratio that is used to identify these ranges is called Body Mass Index (BMI). This figure is used because there is a relation of body fat to one’s weight. For an adult, a BMI range of 25-29.9 indicates that one is overweight while a BMI that is equal to or exceeds 30 is obese. For children and adults, the case is different. Sex and age determine the BMI and not categories as seen in adults.

The Case of the Green Widgets

The case of Green Widgets presents a case of ineffective communication. Various words are troublesome in this situation. First, are the words by Grayson addressed to Stella who is supposed to convey them to Derek. The words “negative inventory reduction”, “paradigm shift”, “truncated procurement status” are relatively technical and would best be understood by someone with exposure to this kind of words. Stella does not understand the meaning of these words and therefore does now know what to communicate to Derek.
An example of the six functions of non-verbal communication (Non-Verbal Communication). NVC has six major functions; accent, compliment, contradict, regulate, repeat or substitute for verbal communication (Drafke, 2009, p. 82). In the case of Green widgets, the NVC function of regulating comes out very clearly. The interaction in the office between Stella and Grayson depicts the regulating function of NVC. Grayson depicts a disinterested look, going on with his business of catching fish while talking to Stella. This in effect controls the course of the conversation (Drafke, 2009, p. 83). This disinterest shows without doubt that Grayson is in control and in addition, the NVC plays a regulating function in that Stella’s contribution is not encouraged. Stella’s position in the office plays a complementing function to the spoken message. Sitting with her back straight but not against the wall indicate the authority difference between her and Grayson essentially reinforcing the aspect that the two have unchallenged authority relationship (Drafke, 2009, p. 82).

Formal Analysis of a Museum Object: Artemis with a Doe

Artemis with a Doe is also called Diana of Versailles and was a gift to the king of France from Pope Paul IV. This statue stands approximately above 2 meters high making it slightly bigger than the normal human body it represents. Its big size indicates that this sculpture was dedicated to a group of people or a society through their King. Big sculptures are usually constructed with the aim of conspicuity to the public. They are also designed to those sizes so that they can be erected at strategic points in public places.
Artemis with a Doe is made up of white marble that was sculpted to give the images of human and the deer. Marble is known to be soft, and uniform in its intensity and action. It is not brittle and therefore cannot break into small pieces with ease while working on it, and this makes the artist curve into it to come up with any shape. The softness enabled the artist generate the exact appearance of the image with ease. It slight yellowish reflects the color of human skin. Additionally, marble is known to have very low refractive index, which allows light to penetrate its surface some micrometers and the calcite in it reflects from its interior to all directions giving the sculpture a waxy look. This quality gives the sculpture the exact resemblance of human skin when it is smoothly rounded to represent one. This sculpture is not painted but the colour of the marble used play the role of presenting of the real color of human skin and the garment but fails on the deer.
