Fight, flight, freeze, are all reactions that the body makes in order to save a person’s life.

Fight, Flight, Freeze, are all reactions that the body makes in order to save a person’s life. The human body has two nervous systems. The first being the central nervous system (cns), located within the brain and spinal cord which is responsible for mental processing, understanding and organizing information which will better help the person adapt to its environment and the creatures around them. Then the second nervous system is the peripheral nervous system which is located outside of the brain and spinal cord; is responsible for carrying information to and from the central nervous system. The peripheral nervous system has four divisions: somatic nervous system, also called skeletal nervous system (controls voluntary movements of the body as well as reflexes), autonomic nervous system (controls involuntary life functions: heart beat, breathing, eye pupil dilation, digestion, ect.), sympathetic nervous system (causes arousal of involuntary life functions: increase heart rate, faster breathing, enlarging eye pupil, etc.), and parasympathetic nervous system (causes calming of involuntary life functions: decreased heart rate, slowering of breath, pupils constrict, etc), (Sanderson & Huffman, 2019).
Every action has a reaction and that goes for the human body as well. The peripheral-autonomic nervous system’s subdivisions (sympathetic nervous system and parasympathetic nervous system) are constantly contradicting each other to keep the body in equilibrium or better known as homeostasis by controlling the body’s reactions to stressful or exciting situations. For example, on a cold day your body will protect itself by forcing the muscles to contract, this produces heat, (NCBI – WWW Error Blocked Diagnostic, n.d.).
In an extreme scenario, the peripheral-autonomic nervous system could be crucial to save a person’s life by triggering a person’s fight, flight, or freeze response. Example, after being injured in a fight or lifting a heavy object, it’s normal to not feel the effects (pain) until the next day or a few hours after the battle. This is the body’s way of protecting itself, by lowering the pain receptors until the person is out of the dangerous circumstance (fight response). Or when faced with danger, the autonomic nervous system could increase one’s heart rate and blood pressure which forces one to breathe more quickly, making nutrients and oxygen go to the muscles giving them energy to run away (flight). Or even altering one’s memories, this can be the body’s way of protecting itself from emotionally traumatic experiences causing the memory to be unclear or completely blocked out (freeze), (Health Essentials, 2019).
Can you list some peripheral nervous system health issues and explain the effects these issues would have on a person’s ability to react?

Some parents may not realize how damaging this can be for the children.

Social Media is definitely a toxic outlet for young kids who are not gaining proper benefits and can be damaging to the mindset and self esteem of kids. As young kids are growing up, they are trying to find out who they are and trying to understand the world around them. Most young kids want to fit in and feel they are accepted which helps them to build confidence. When you start to add social media into the picture, it’s like you are putting them into a popularity contest but with competition older than them and impossible to defeat. Growing up kids will tend to have role models which is a positive thing, this allows them to set a goal for themself and say “i want to be like that person not only for looks but for success.”
Kids also could be learning lessons from social media that won’t benefit them in the future but something they will take with them as they continue to grow. For example, if a child at a young age is exposed to bullying in school or cyber bullying through social media, the comments that the bully made will stay with them and become an insecurity for them. This is caused by “increased hippocampal volume growth across school ages and early adolescence, and this trajectory is associated with later emotional conditions.”(online library)
Young kids can also be affected because they can be exposed to content that is directed towards older audiences and these young kids could be seeing the content and thinking this is something appropriate for their age. Some parents may not realize how damaging this can be for the children. Not only does this apply to young children, but this also applies to teens as well. Teens can see social media influencers having a “perfect” life which can cause them to “suffer from Facebook depression are at risk for social isolation and sometimes turn to risky Internet sites and blogs for “help” that may promote substance abuse, unsafe sexual practices, or aggressive or self-destructive behaviors.”(publications aap) The brains are at their most absorbent point around the “ages of 2-7”(edutopia), which means whatever kids learn then will stay with them as they grow. Have you had an experience from a young age that shaped you negatively today?

What are the weaknesses in marx’s description of stratification that are addressed by weber, or put differently, how are weber’s key ideas an improvement on marx’s ideas?

According to Max Weber, social class position is based on the level of wealth, power and prestige an individual holds. In contrast, Marx and later conflict theoristsbelieve that social stratification stems from the fact of differential access to and control of the goods, power and other resources of society, mainly between the ownership class (bourgeoisie) and everyone else (proletariat). The dominant group takes advantage of their high status in order to maintain control over resources.
We are best served by not seeing these thoughts as opposed to one another, with one being “better or worse”; instead, we should see Weber as critiquing Marx – offering commentary on Marx’s ideas, suggesting changes when the original ideas seem unsupported by the data, and extending those ideas through adding new ideas and modifying older, less effective ones.
For this paper, I want you to first think critically about what Marx and the conflict perspective offer in terms of explaining stratification (or one’s social class position). Which of Marx’s ideas seem to accurately describe social reality as you see it? Use his terms and give concrete examples which demonstrate that what Marx describes as the reality of stratification actually exists in the world today. Put differently, how is Marx “right” and what evidence do you have that he is “right”?
Then I want you to think about how Weber’s ideas on stratification represent a critique of Marx. Specifically, how do the ideas of wealth, power, and prestige extend Marx’s ideas about stratification? What are the weaknesses in Marx’s description of stratification that are addressed by Weber, or put differently, how are Weber’s key ideas an improvement on Marx’s ideas? Again, use concrete examples that demonstrate the difference between Marx’s and Weber’s views of stratification and how it works.
Finally, summarize the value added by Weber’s critiques. In concrete terms, what does Weber’s formulation allow you to better understand and explain about stratification processes and about how people experience these processes? Develop an example that demonstrates this added value or improved explanation.
Your paper should be at least 500 words but not more than 750 words. (You will not lose credit if you must go over the 750 word limit, so long as your work is organized and the additional words are needed to create a substantive argument).
Your work should be submitted as a PDF file or something compatible with Microsoft. (Your Google accounts give you access to these file formats if needed). DO NOT send PAGES files (i.e. files from the word processor native to Apple). D2L cannot open that file type.
If you only use course materials, you do not need to do in-text citations or a reference list. If you use materials from outside the course, you must include both. Any style will do as long as it is used consistently.

In some cases, a mental health diagnosis is not identified, and the focus of the book is on the individual’s identity or life experience that may impact their well-

Personal Account Paper: Each student will deepen their understanding of the experience of
mental health challenges by reading a personal account of someone who has adapted to/coped
with a mental health disorder and/or life experience that impacted their emotional well-being.
Appendix A in the syllabus outlines/describes many books. These are the suggested books for
the course. If a student would like to choose a different first-person account other than those
listed, they should speak with the instructor to gain approval. The student should plan to present
a clear rationale for wishing to use an alternative book. The paper should be approximately 5
pages in length and in APA format. It should include the following four sections/headings:
1. Mental Health/Well-Being: Discuss the mental health challenges described in the
personal account. In some cases, a mental health diagnosis is not identified, and the focus
of the book is on the individual’s identity or life experience that may impact their well-
being. If a mental health diagnosis is identified, provide a brief discussion of how you
now understand the diagnosis. This does not include a list of symptoms from the DSM 5,
but rather a discussion about the general experiences of people diagnosed with the
specific mental illness. Symptoms of the disorder and how they manifest/impact daily
functioning must be explored.
2. Life Impact: A discussion of how the author experienced the challenge/life
experience/mental illness. What was the impact of living with the challenge/life
experience/mental health disorder. Discuss the impact on relationships, education,
employment, well-being, hopes/dreams, and sense of self?
3. Environmental Response: A discussion of how the world (environment – family,
friends, school, employers, community-based services, medical professionals, etc.)
responded to the person with the life experience/challenge/identity/mental illness.
Explore how mental health stigma and inaccurate assumptions impact the life experiences
of someone with a specific life experience/identity/mental health disorder. Identify
limitations in our mental health system of care and where there are inadequate services,
support systems, and policies.
4. Personal and Professional Impact: A discussion of the impact the book had on you
professionally and/or personally. How did this narrative inform your social work practice.
Did it change the way you might understand and engage an individual/family/group
living with this life experience/identity/challenge/diagnosis?

Do not use them.This paper has two parts. The first part is to create a status tree, and the second part is to write about the statuses of that tree in relation to the related key concepts from the text.
How to Complete Part 1: The Status Tree
Use the Shapes, Smart Art, or drawing tools in Microsoft Word to create a status tree that illustrates your achieved, ascribed, and master statuses. Use different colors, shapes, or shading to distinguish achieved from ascribed statuses.
This video gives a tutorial on using SmartArt:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/videoplayer/embed/…
Here is the example of a status tree from the Module 4: Note: This status tree does not indicate a master status, but you must indicate one in your status tree.
If you cannot figure out the Word Shapes, Smart Art, or drawing tools, then use another imaging program, or draw one by hand. If you use another imaging program, then save your image as jpeg file (no larger than 100KB please) and insert it into your paper. If you draw your tree by hand, then scan or take a photo of your tree and save it as a jpeg file (no larger than 100KB please) and then insert it into your paper. How to Complete Part 2: The Paper In the paper, use your roles and statuses to define and apply the following terms to your own life. Be sure to define and give examples of each of the following from your own life, based on your status tree. Status (define and give an example from your life) Achieved Status (Define and include at least 6 from your life) Ascribed Status (Define and include at least 4 from your life) Status Symbol (Define and include at least 1 from your life) Master Status (Define and include your master status)
Role (define and give an example from your life) Role Conflict (Define and include at least 1 example from your life) Role Strain (Define and include at least 1 example from your life) Include an introduction and conclusion in your paper. View the rubric to see how the paper will be graded. This video has a refresher of the concepts.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a sociology case study and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
I would like you to
consider how the sociological approach may help us to understand the social
changes resulting from Covid-19. How have values, norms, beliefs, and/or
behaviors been altered? Next, explain how one of the other social sciences
(psychology, economics, political science, or anthropology) may understand
changes in society due to Covid-19. Specifically identify how the different social
sciences differ in their focus.
