The information presented in this article can help me improve my practice. The ultimate goal of the study done by Austin et al. (2005) was to change organizational behavior to improve employee and customer safety within the restaurant. Furthermore, the intervention formulated by Austin et al. (2005) helped the restaurant’s dishwashers and servers improve their task completion performance. As a behavior analyst, I will be expected to work with clients to help them achieve their goals. One of the techniques I will be using will be task analysis. Austin et al. (2005) demonstrated that task analysis followed by an appropriate intervention could help improve employees’ chances of correctly completing their tasks. As such, when using the task analysis technique, I will ensure that I propose an effective intervention that will help employees better complete their tasks and achieve their goals.

How has Covid-19 Impacted Students’ Mental Health

Capstone Week 2 Assignment

  • In this course, you will complete a Capstone paper in which you apply your critical thinking skills to an issue or problem for which you will create a research question. As you develop your research question your goal is to 1) learn about something you do not know now; 2) identify something doable; and 3) be specific enough that you can gather data and literature about a topic for which there is not already a definitive conclusion. During your review of the literature relevant to your research question, you will integrate current, scholarly articles that represent various perspectives regarding your research question. Then, you will synthesize the information you integrated by identifying the patterns and themes across the articles, as they relate to your research question.
  • This week, you will practice evaluating examples of critical thinking. You will examine current, scholarly articles and evaluate the first two elements of critical thinking—integration and synthesis.
  • and use the “APA Course Paper Template (APA 7)” for this Assignment.

Assignment (2–3 pages, not including title page and resources page)

For the two current, scholarly articles you selected, contrast the evidence of integration and synthesis between the two articles, including in your description how well they meet the rigor of integration and synthesis:

I have learned that sources from international bodies specializing in global virus outbreaks are highly reliable for research. For example, both articles have provided insight and statistical data reports from the World Health Organization. This resource is credible and reputable for providing access o trusted health data for the public and authors. The World Health Organization has been on the frontline of regularly updating the public globally about the Covid-19 and its impact. Therefore, it is a reliable source for the research question; How has Covid-19 impacted students’ mental health? The patterns and themes of the sources utilized to portray a trend in examining the effect of the Covid-19 outbreak on students in higher learning education. The resources used investigated the mental health impacts and physical health and its association with psychological wellness. Another pattern realized is the integration of the research studies

The advert image depicted above showcases a middle-aged couple, with the man dealing with hearing loss. In the advert by Healthy Hearing, the healthcare professional advises the couple on the benefits of using hearing aids to combat hearing loss. According to Tyler (2020), hearing challenges increase during middle adulthood. In addition, numerous middle-aged adults find it more challenging than young adults to understand speech when they are in noisy environments. Tyler (2020) also points out that as people age, they lose the ability to hear higher frequencies. However, studies have demonstrated that hearing aids can help address these challenges.

. For instance, during birth, the adrenal glands undergo atrophy due to the shrinkage of the interior layer of the cortex. Further, during adolescence, the thymus and lymphoid tissues atrophy. The widespread cell atrophy as age advances results from changes in blood supply and nutrition in an active mature life. The reduced nutritional aspect becomes a concern contributed by starvation or lack of food absorption due to the prevalence of a health disorder. Despite the reversible trait, early detection of cell atrophy is crucial to mitigate high mortality rates that emerge as a consequence.

While complying with the Clean Air Act is important, special concerns should focus on identifying how to minimize the gas and oil industry pollutants. According to the Clean Air Task Force (CATF) (2) fact sheet, these pollutants are contributors of smog and ozone particles that have caused approximately 1200 children to suffer from asthma attacks. Worrying, no county outside South Carolina State escapes the health risks from the pollution. Although the State does not have gas and oil reservoirs, the intense activity of these commodities in the respective industry contributes to the air pollution that spreads across the state borders (2). Hence, the emphasis on promoting health safety through the thorough implementation of the air protection federal standards will significantly improve air quality and people’s well-being.

Environmental risk

Nature itself presents hazards to human health, including disease, natural poisons, and radiation. Regulators use a process called environmental risk assessment to decide whether they need to take risk management steps in relation to a risk. In this activity, you will carry out three steps of an environmental risk assessment called release analysis, exposure analysis, and health effects analysis. This activity will require outside research in addition to the textbook and will set the stage for a larger assignment in Week 4.


Write a 1-2 page paper using the following instructions.

Select an environmental risk that occurs in nature, and research information about its release, exposure scenarios, and health effects. The specific data in each area of the analysis will depend on the environmental risk you choose. Write at least one paragraph for each analysis:

  1. Release Analysis: Identify the contaminant, and how it is released, measured, or detected. Include units of measurement, setting for the release, and scientific fields related to the contamination or measurement.
  2. Exposure Analysis: Analyze the risk of exposure such as settings in which people encounter the risk or plausible scenarios in which exposure occurs.
  3. Health Effects Analysis: Estimate the risks to human health, including short and long-term effects, demographic groups at risk, and health effects on individuals and populations.
  4. Use 1-2 sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library

Links to an external site. or review library guides

The final phase of an environmental risk assessment is undertaking a health effect analysis. Doing this allows an investigator to estimate the risk a hazard poses to people’s health, including short- and long-term health impacts, the demographic groups at risk, as well as the health impacts on individuals and communities. A heat wave can have adverse health impacts on individuals and populations (Disher et al., 2021). These adverse health impacts are not solely caused by the heat itself but also by other attributes, such as the intensity, duration, and frequency of a heat wave (Disher et al., 2021). Furthermore, a heat wave often covers an extensive area, exposing many people to hazardous heat, which can be immensely taxing on a person’s body (Disher et al., 2021). A person’s body struggles to cool itself when it is immensely hot. This causes the body’s temperature to risk, increasing the risk of experiencing a heat-related illness such as heat cramps, heat strokes, or heat exhaustion (Disher et al., 2021).

The household should switch to LED lighting as LED bulbs are energy- and cost-efficient, and durable (Hu et al., 2022). Reducing energy consumption can also be achieved by economizing on hot water. Hot water systems are significant energy consumers within households, and my household can make savings in this area with a solar or heat pump system. Furthermore, turning off power strips is crucial. Electronics and various appliances draw electricity when plugged in, even when in sleep mode. Finally, my household can utilize line drying as tumble drying consumes significant energy. Line drying is cost-effective and enhances energy conservation (Goldstein et al., 2020).

Spread of COVID-19

Sometimes nature presents itself as a laboratory, where scientists can study results that are far more broad-based than any test they could set up in a controlled environment. COVID-19 “shutdowns” offered such an opportunity, when large geographic areas reduced activity to stop the spread of COVID-19. Scientists are studying the impacts on air quality, looking for lessons that could have broader significance for policies to slow climate change.


Write a 1-2 page paper using the following instructions:

  1. Select one of the following articles to read:
  2. Summarize the conclusions in the article in your own words. Support the summary with references to the article.
  3. Analyze whether or not the article provides insights into possible solutions to climate change. Support the insights with evidence from the article or other resources.

Bekbulat et al. makes similar observations stating that during the stay-at-home orders, there were reduced levels of air pollutants such as NO2, CO, and PM10, even though the changes were not long-lasting (1). Reducing traffic volumes is crucial in reducing NO2, CO, and O3 emissions. However, the reductions were applicable in the areas where the pollutants dominated, such as New York and Florida, where traffic emissions were the main sources of pollution. In other areas such as Texas, California, and Illinois, reduction in traffic volume did not improve the quality of air, as air pollution in these areas was majorly contributed to with other factors other than traffic emissions.

While pursuing my undergraduate program, I visited different communities while advocating for environmental sustainability. This exposed me to communities experiencing major health threats because of air pollution from polluting factories. Many plants closed business because of failing to comply with the Clean Air Act. Others risked their operation licenses due to poor waste management and damaging land and water bodies. Therefore, my passion for transforming such settings based on the real-world experience from the internship will add value to the measures taken to improve healthy living. Generally, my skills in effective communication, critical thinking, analyzing community problems, and developing evaluation programs for the implemented interventions will add value when identifying sustainable environmental solutions.

I will also attach the powerpoint explaining the goal and the instructions for the actual research paper that this assignment is a part of.

Requirements: answer questions

Hi, please make sure you go over the instructions and the example.

you have already done 5 references of the total 10 references. you can go back to the other questions and the instructions to see what you have done so far.

Content: 50%. This is the most important part of your paper. As the author of a review paper, your job
is to synthesize the current literature on a topic of interest. Make sure that you build a strong argument
and that you convey important information to the reader. Be certain to focus on the environmental
issue and its relevance to ecology. Your paper should not be about how humans are impacted by your
topic! Support your topic sentences with main points/conclusions drawn from articles found during
your literature search. Avoid filling your paper with “fluff”, unimportant information that takes up space
but is not relevant to your main points. You should not summarize one article for more than one
paragraph and you should not go into too much detail describing the methods used in the papers unless
absolutely necessary. You should have a minimum of 10 sources cited in your pape

the example should be followed when you try to look for sources and subtopics regadring the issue of disease in taiga.

also as a reminder, the sources has to be peer reviewed primary sources from google scholars or the library i had provided you with earlier.

I am just attaching these again incase you need them.

also, you can make new subtopics, try to follow these guidelines /instructions I attached and the example, as last time our subtopics were written last minute because of the confusion.
