The Relationship Between the Research Question, Hypotheses, Specific Aims, and Long-Term Goals of the Project
Before you begin writing a grant proposal, take some time to map out your research strategy. A good first step is to formulate a research question.
A Research Question is a statement that identifies the phenomenon to be studied. For example, “What resources are helpful to new and minority drug abuse researchers?”
To develop a strong research question from your ideas, you should ask yourself these things: * Do I know the field and its literature well? * What are the important research questions in my field? * What areas need further exploration? * Could my study fill a gap? Lead to greater understanding? * Has a great deal of research already been conducted in this topic area? * Has this study been done before? If so, is there room for improvement? * Is the timing right for this question to be answered? Is it a hot topic, or is it becoming obsolete? * Would funding sources be interested? * If you are proposing a service program, is the target community interested? * Most importantly, will my study have a significant impact on the field?

A strong research idea should pass the “so what” test. Think about the potential impact of the research you are proposing. What is the benefit of answering your research question? Who will it help (and how)? If you cannot make a definitive statement about the purpose of your research, it is unlikely to be funded. A research focus should be narrow, not broad-based. For example, “What can be done to prevent substance abuse?” is too large a question to answer. It would be better to begin with a more focused question such as“What is the relationship between specific early childhood experiences and subsequent substance-abusing behaviors?”…...

Independent Field Trip

...Nevertheless, I paid for a general admission ticket that cost a whole $5 because I am a Chicago resident. This only gave me access to the Caribbean Reef, Waters of the World and Amazon Rising exhibits. The atmosphere inside this building was amazing due to curiosity of the wide age group. People were interested in the different types of reptiles and aquatic life and wanted to know more, so did I. The first stop I came across was the Amazon Rising exhibits. The first aquarium that caught my eye was the green anaconda because it is believed to be the largest snake in South America and possibly in the world. Green anacondas reside in the sluggish waters of the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers. Because liquid supports their weight, they can outgrow such tree-dwelling snakes as the large pythons. People are not on the menu, but caimans (similar to alligators), capybaras (100-pound South American rodents) and deer are. After downing just one of these animals, the green anaconda can survive for months before eating again. Also, in this exhibit, I saw a really long fish that spike my interest. It is called the Arapaima and is known as the Amazon’s largest fish and the largest of the Osteoglossidae, or bonytongue, family, and one of the world’s largest freshwater fishes. As I went further through the exhibits, I began to notice the habitat of the main floor. Shedd Aquarium did a great job by trying to replicate the their original habitats. In the center of main floor, I saw......

Mark Twain Synthesis Essay

...becoming a better version of ourselves each time while Twain objected by stating that instead of moving forward we were slowly becoming an ignorant version of our race. “Man is the cruel animal.” (Twain, The Lowest Animal) Twain believed that humans will kill their own race to get their point across and get what they want. We have seen such cruel behavior multiple times in history, whether its religion or a war, humanity’s solution to a problem is to fight always ending in an ocean full of despair and corruption. Mark Twain compared us to animals and saying that they are the superior race. He compared the English Earl to an anaconda and found that the anaconda only kills what it can eat and doesn't waste anything. "The fact stood proven that the difference between an earl and an anaconda is that the earl is cruel and the anaconda isn't." He watched the anaconda only kill one calf because that is all it could eat, compared to the earl who enjoyed watching all the buffalo die and he only ate one. This shows how inconsiderate and careless the human race really is, we enjoy to watch others suffer and to kill just for the pure satisfaction of it. Mark Twain’s essay “The Damned Human Race” also shows how he believed the human race is flawed and corrupt. Twain talked about how man is the only religious animal. This ties into how the human race is unwilling to compromise and incapable of learning. He shows the example of how a dog, a cat, a rabbit, a fox, a goose, a squirrel, some......

The Core

...will lose its electromagnetic shield and we'll all be toast--fried by solar microwaves. To make that concept clear to a panel of U.S. military men, Professor Josh Keyes (Aaron Eckhart) of the University of Chicago borrows a can of room freshener, sets the propellant alight with his Bic, and incinerates a peach. To watch Keyes and the generals contemplate that burnt peach is to witness a scene that cries out from its very vitals to be cut from the movie and made into ukulele picks. Such goofiness amuses me. I have such an unreasonable affection for this movie, indeed, that it is only by slapping myself alongside the head and drinking black coffee that I can restrain myself from recommending it. It is only a notch down from "Congo," "Anaconda," "Lara Croft, Tomb Raider" and other films which those with too little taste think they have too much taste to enjoy. To be sure, "The Core" starts out in an unsettling manner, with the crash-landing of the space shuttle. Considering that "Phone Booth," scheduled for release in October 2002, was shelved for six months because it echoed the Beltway Sniper, to put a shuttle crash in a March 2003 movie is pushing the limits of decorum, wouldn't you say? And yet the scene is a hum-dinger. The Earth's disturbed magnetic field has confused the shuttle's guidance system, causing it to aim for downtown Los Angeles. Pilot Bruce Greenwood insists "it's Mission Control's call," but co-pilot Hillary Swank has an idea, which she explains......

...stories live on even hundreds of years after his death. One excellent example of his work is the essay, "The Damned Human Race", where he takes the form of a scientific journal and explains his theory as to why humans did not ascend from wild animals, but rather descend. Twain uses satire, most notably sarcasm, in his essay to show that society is more backwards than the average individual thinks. Twain opens the journal by establishing his credibility. He notes that he used the scientific method in his studies, a source used by even the greatest, smartest scientists. Twain begins listing the differences between the animals, and the result is, to say the least, embarrassing. A stand-out comparison is between the earl and the anaconda: the anaconda will eat what it needs and will only kill what it will eat, but the earl is cruel and will kill as many as it can for its own pleasure. He also notes that anything inherited from animals has been corrupted along the way. He writes, "Cats are loose in their morals, but the cat is not. Man has brought the cat's looseness with him but has left the unconsciousness behind. The cat is innocent, the man is not." This is all done very sarcastically and borderline-mockingly; and the end result is a master work in the art of satire. He shows signs of a joking tone at times but it is clear that he is not ridiculing the entire subject just for the sake of a cheap laugh or for stupid ridicule; it is obvious that he wants things to......

...television and how more people are more and more tattooed, and if this acceptable I personally am tattooed, so I can identify with the people who talk about this as well. I struggle with myself about the tattoos I have choose to get and where I have choose to get them. I am in a field where I can’t have them where mine are. However, I can also conceal mine with the proper clothing. In society I struggle with acceptance about the tattoos I do have and looking for work with them. I get dirty looks and sometimes you just get rude comments, because a lot of society still has no accepted that everyone is different and will live the way we want to live. For Individual vs nature while watching television there was a show where a man was letting an anaconda eat him alive. He had protective gear and he was protect and it could be stopped at any point. Even though he was attempting this to gain more research on the animal, as the snake started to eat him he had to stop because the snake was so powerful that he could feel his bones getting ready to give in. This to me is a great example about nature. I have camped my whole life however I would never go up to a random snake, because snakes can kill you and if you do not know if it is deadly or not then you are at a disadvantage. When I look at Individual vs Technology I look at how every year we come out with new computers and cell phones that offer newer technology for us to learn.

Tactics and Strategies Used in the Civil War.

...an army is for them to have a quick and efficient supply stream for their war supplies such as materiel and food for the soldiers. These have to been replenished swiftly for an army to operate well. If these supply line were to be cut, these would render the army useless. They would be like dogs without teeth. This is one of the strategies that I would use as a general. Specifically I would use the Anaconda Plan. Then Anaconda plan was a plan suggested to President Lincoln by Union General-in-chief Winfield Scott. The plan was to block the coast of the south to prevent export of cash crops such as cotton, tobacco and others from the south. The blockade would also hold back imports of crucial war supplies needed by the Confederate troops. The plan was also to gain control of Mississippi river which would therefore divide the South by cutting the south off the west. The South was to be divided further by capturing the Tennessee River Valley and marching through Georgia to the coast. And finally the capital states of the Confederates, Virginia and Richmond, were to be captured. (Anaconda Plan.) In the battle field a general would also require good tactics and strategies to win a war. In the battle field I would place the infantry behind small cannons. These cannons would be used to fire nails and scrap iron in canvas bags and would also shield the infantry a bit from enemy fire. I would then place the heavy artillery at the rear behind the infantry so that they could fire......

History Could Attract More Tourist

...more welcoming entrance to Uptown, and creating a heritage tourism council where members build a vision that sells Butte’s product — its history. Jarvis, who’s lived in Butte about 3½ years, said heritage tourism has been discussed in Butte over the past two decades, but solid plans haven’t really taken shape. Marketing, Jarvis said, has been the missing ingredient. Last year, a consultant helped update the 1993 Butte-Anaconda Regional Historic Preservation Plan. New plans include marketing strategies to attract tourists who drive through Butte — but don’t stop. Approximately three million nonresidents drive by Butte each year, mostly between May and October, Jarvis said. But less than 1 percent of those tourists stop. To attract visitors to “Montana’s Copperway,” Jarvis said it’s important to have a website, clear signage on the highway, and well-maintained historic features clearly marked by signs showing the way. Jarvis said his focus is on Uptown Butte. Plans for revitalizing the heritage on the hill could apply to the rest of Butte and Anaconda as well, he said.

...the Anaconda installer. Anaconda can perform background processing. You can still be entering information while Anaconda is installing packages and you can skip over the screens that are irrelevant to your install. 3. Where can the installation image used by Anaconda be located? The virtual console 4. Why is it important to test the installation medium? How can you do so? The data can become corrupted while fetching an installation image. It is also possible for a transient error to occur while writing an image to a recordable medium. It can also save you hours of aggravation if the install fails. 5. What should you do if the graphical installer does not work? Try waiting a while and if the installation hangs or try performing a textual installation. 6. When might you specify an ext2 file system instead of ext4? When partitions who data do not change often, because ext4 offers no benefits. 7. Which utilities can you use to partition a hard disk prior to installation? The gnome-disks using a GUI. You can also use the parted or fdisk from the command line. 8. What do you need to do before you can install Fedora as the second operating system on a Windows machine (to create a dual-boot system)? Make sure there is enough free space on a Windows system. When you boot the updated system you will be able to choose which OS you want to run. 9. How does Anaconda set up a hard disk by default?

Trophic Pyramid

...selected the jaguar. The jaguar being an apex predator, as it diets on other animals but was virtually no predators of its own (PBS.org, 2008), exists in a unique position. The jaguar limits the populations of other inhabitants, predators included, thusly maintaining a balance in the tropical rainforest. As the jaguar preys on many species, including predators such as the black caiman and anaconda, neither species’ population is allowed to grow beyond control thus protecting the lower level consumers that black caiman and anaconda prey upon. The amount of energy gained is much greater than the amount of energy lost through the 2nd-4th trophic levels. Energy that is consumed at any tropic level is used through many life processes such as moving, breathing, reproducing and searching for food. A significant portion of the energy is lost before being absorbed into the next level. Scientists estimate that 90% of the energy that enters each level is “lost” (Annenberg Foundation, 2014) If one species was removed from my trophic pyramid many species would be affected. For example, if the anaconda were removed any species that it preys on, such as tapirs, would experience a surge in their population. Whereas any food eaten by tapirs would see a negative impact in population because of the increase of tapirs. Species who are in danger of becoming extinct require considerable attention, but all of the attention cannot be placed solely on the endangered species. The reasons for a......

Twain Lowest Animal W Annotating

...of my experiments were quite curious. In the course of my reading I had come across a case where, many years ago, some hunters on our Great Plains organized a buffalo hunt for the entertainment of an English earl. They had charming sport. They killed seventy-two of those great animals and ate part of one of them and left the seventy-one to rot. In order to determine the difference between an anaconda and an earl--if any--I caused seven young calves to be turned into the anaconda’s cage. The grateful reptile immediately crushed one of them and swallowed it, then lay back satisfied. It showed no further interest in the calves, and no disposition to harm them. I tried this experiment with other anacondas, always with the same result. The fact stood proven that the difference between an earl and an anaconda is that the earl is cruel and the anaconda isn’t; and that the earl wantonly destroys what he has no use for, but the anaconda doesn’t. This seemed to suggest that the anaconda was not descended from the earl. It also seemed to suggest that the earl was descended from the anaconda, and had lost a good deal in the transition. Based on the results of his experiment, paraphrase Twain’s conclusion. Based on the results of his experiment, paraphrase Twain’s conclusion.   In paragraph 4, what specific details make us suspect this may be satire?

Linux

...What is a utility program? A utility program is a class of programs that are usually designed to perform a specific function like converting data from one format to another. 5. What is a shell? How does it work with the kenel? Whit the user? The shell in a Linux OS works just like the command line in windows. The shell will execute commands and show it on the monitor. The shell has no GUI so the user needs to know what exactly they are doing. Also the Shell is a program for Linux which has been written to using the Kernel modules, the kernel is a program consisted of many modules. Kernel module provides different API which the shell programmer uses to call depending upon the command placed by the user. Page 49 6. What is Anaconda? Anaconda is a installer program used by red hat and fedora. 7. Would you set up a GUI on a server system? Why or why not? No you would not set up a GUI on any server system. Why because the I.T. professional does would not want just any person to go in and start clicking on icons that may change any settings/files etc. 8. A system boots from the hard disk. To install Linux, you want it to boot from a DVD. How can you make the system boot from a DVD? To boot from a cd rom/DVD rather than the hard drive you would either have to go into bios and change the setting to boot only from the drive specified or wait for the command line that will tell you to push any button to boot from cd. 9. What is free space on a hard disk? What......
