“Are you a dragon slayer or a panda hugger?”
China is a fascinating and confusing country to study. Given its continually expanding influence in the world, opinions and attitudes towards China are often polarized. This course aims to provide a nuanced, multifaceted examination of China and hopefully dispel myths and misconceptions that are unhelpful to our understanding of the country.
For each student, to document your journey of learning, you will write a 300- to 500-word exposition at the beginning of the semester and repeat the exercise at the end of the semester. In each of your expositions, describe your impression/understanding of the country, choose a position in the question above (i.e., “dragon slayer,” “panda hugger,” or neutral/don’t know) and explain your reasoning. It will be revealing to see if your position has changed over the course of the semester, and for what reason(s).
Panda Hugger vs. Dragon Slayer: A Primer
Many people are familiar with the terms Panda Hugger and Dragon Slayer. Journalist Rob Gifford […] once defined the two extremes as follows: “A panda hugger is someone who says that almost everything going on in China is good, that China’s progress is a great thing for the world, and that any problems are peripheral. A dragon slayer is someone who says the situation in China is terrible, that China is a threat to the world, and that any positive developments are just window-dressing.”
In an article for the Beijing Review, Jeanine Ivanov, an expat living in China, gave her own explanation: “Panda huggers are total China advocates – people who feel that the world’s future rests on the country’s massive, burly shoulders, that the Western media gives the Chinese Government a raw deal and that China is simply the most exciting place in the world to be right now. Dragon slayers simply don’t believe the hype: China will not be the world’s next superpower because it does not play by fair economic rules, and all the social unrest caused by rural poverty or human rights abuses will eventually cause the country to ‘do a Soviet Union’.”
1.Please make it to at least 300 word thank you
2. Please state that you are neutral, and please dont add any references.
Here is my draft and thoughts, you can use it if you want.
there is no saying of a perfect government. The CCP made a lot of mistakes in the past, especially the Great Leap Forward and the cultural revolution. So many people suffered and died.
Now that I have a better sense on the politics, I still think I’am netural, not a panda hugger or a dragon slayer. I believe there is no country that is inherently bad or good, the motives are always around the country’s intreaste, such as land expention, economic growth, international trade, improving citizens quality of life etc. China’s motives are very obvious — expansion and economic growth.
China did a lot wrong in the history, especially with “The Great Leap Forward” and the cultural revolution.


The goal of your final project is to connect a theme (Jacqueline Woodson) Identi

The goal of your final project is to connect a theme (Jacqueline Woodson) Identity) from Brown Girl Dreaming to the real world. This is a connection project. The tone for your paper is formal, your audience is general, and your purpose is to inform.
o You must find a minimum of 2 DCCC database articles with factual information to support your connections.
o You must use the DCCC library for your research.
o You may use ONE QUALITY internet source (Wikipedia is not a credible source)
o You must attach copies of all information used in writing your project.
o You MUST submit your paper online to Canvas.
Your projects must:
Be a minimum of 5 paragraphs
If your paper is not the required length you cannot receive full credit
Use the 5 paragraph format
Paragraph 2 of the paper- 1st connection
Paragraph 3 of the paper- 2nd connection
Paragraph 4 of the paper – 3rd connection
Be typed in MLA format
Double-space the text of your paper and use a legible font (e.g. Times New Roman).
The font size should be 12 pt.
In the upper left-hand corner of the first page, list your name, your instructor’s name, the course, and the date. Again, be sure to use double-spaced text.
Leave only one space after periods or other punctuation marks.
Indent the first line of paragraphs one half-inch from the left margin. MLA recommends that you use the Tab key as opposed to pushing the Space Bar five times.
MLA format follows the author-page method of in-text citation. This means that the author’s last name and the page number(s) from which the quotation or paraphrase is taken must appear in the text, and a complete reference should appear on your Works Cited page. The author’s name may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the page number(s) should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence. For example:
Wordsworth stated that Romantic poetry was marked by a “spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” (263).
Romantic poetry is characterized by the “spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” (Wordsworth 263).
Wordsworth extensively explored the role of emotion in the creative process (263)

We’ve learned about many different cultures and discussed a number of anthropological concepts over the course of this semester, and are now examining Engelke’s last main chapter (9) on “Nature”. For this last paper, answer the following questions in a 500-word minimum essay format.
1. Returning to the work of Marilyn Strathern in Melanesia, what is the example Engelke gives for how the people of Mount Hagen think differently than we typically do (p. 256)? Describe the nature/culture split in the Western thought tradition – what is it and when did the split take its current form (pp. 256-257)? How would pet owners in our culture be viewed by people from other cultural traditions (p. 259)? Why?
2. Margaret Lock, a medical anthropologist, studied the people of Japan in relation to their culture’s unique values and traditions. What are the values that “orient the attitudes of many Japanese” toward death (p. 263)? How are these values different from attitudes about death in Western cultures (pp. 260-262)?
3. Of the many anthropological concepts (vocabulary terms, research approaches, intellectual movements) and/or cultures described in the lectures, textbook, and videos, which were the most interesting and/or challenging for you and why? Describe what aspect(s) (values, kinship, gift giving, traditions, etc.) of that culture or concept were the most engaging for you. Has it changed your way of thinking about other culture(s)? If so, describe how and why. Remember, be specific and detailed in your paragraph. Cite page numbers from the textbook where applicable, use quotation marks for direct quotes, and give credit where credit is due for others’ ideas and statements.
Please write this in an essay form and do not restate the questions while writing the paper.
This is the textbook needed to write this paper.

Assignment Details
A recent event has caused uproar in demands for law enforcement to be attentive to activities that could lead to terrorism or gang activity. Race has been a source of controversy because of the stereotypes and labels put on individuals from certain races and religious backgrounds.
Opinions about issues in society are often the catalyst for the foundations of social change. The combined opinions of all individuals determine society’s position on an issue. Because criminal justice professionals have a first-hand view of the individuals who will be affected by the change, it is particularly crucial that they develop and advocate a position on an issue.
Using the library, Internet, or any other available materials for adequate, accurate, and relevant support, address your position on this controversial issue.
Propose 2 strategies for dealing with law enforcement subculture and racial profiling.
One strategy is to be from an ethical perspective and the other should be in terms of keeping societal opinion from making significant changes in the functioning of systems and society as a whole.

I’m doing a research on The Impact of the Russia-Ukraine war on the economy of several countries using economic indicators before and after the war: CPI, Inflation Rate and Food Inflation rate. GDP annual growth rate was excluded because a lot of countries had missing data for the period after the war.
Countries with incomplete data can be excluded.
You are required to do the following:
The Russia-Ukraine War started on 24/Feb/2022
The data should be analyzed on the period before the war and after the war. You can use dummy variables if necessary.
Since the data is reported on 28-feb-2022, you can use February as a test month to see if the analysis is different before and after the war.
– Report the descriptive statistics. Mean and median standard deviation. Skewness and normality test.
– Explain if the data is parametric and linear. Any outliers and missing values.
– Do a correlation analysis according to the data (either parametric correlation or non parametric. Use the appropriate correlation)
– Do a regression analysis with confidence levels.
– Explain your findings.

W4 Activity: Practice Crafting Your RQ-DV-IVs-Hypothesis Quantitative Research M

W4 Activity: Practice Crafting Your RQ-DV-IVs-Hypothesis Quantitative Research Methodology
Forum Context: Learning how to craft a research methodology that is legitimate and valid is one of the most important learning objectives of this course. A legitimate and valid research methodology is comprised of the following componenents: a Research Question (RQ), one Dependent Variable (DV), several (2-5) Independent Variables (IVs), and a Hypothesis. We will use this forum activity to practice crafting a legitimate and valid research methodology for your research project in this course.
Forum Activity: Please present your Research Question (RQ), Dependent Variable (DV), Independent Variables (IVs), and Hypothesis for your research project.
Please use the following format for this post:
RQ: (this identifies your topic and scope of your inquiry)
DV: (this is the “effect” you are investigating: only one)
IVs: (these are the main “causes” of the “effect” you are investigating; between 2-5)
Hypothesis: (this combines your variables into a single statement that shows their cause-and-effect relationships and provides a viable best educated guess at the answer to the RQ you have posed)
For example:
RQ: What are the most important ingredients for grass to grow? (identifies the topic and scope of inquiry)
DV: ingredients for grass to grow (this is the “effect” you are investigating; in this case, this is the list of the most important ingredients)
IVs: IV 1 sunlight; IV 2 oxygen; IV 3 water (these are the main “causes” of the “effect” you are investigating; in this case, these are the most important ingredients)
Hypothesis: Sunlight, oxygen, and water are the most important ingredients for grass to grow. (this combines your variables into a single statement that shows their cause-and-effect relationship and provides a viable best educated guess at the answer to the RQ you have posed)
Provide at least one reference that you used to develop your variables (it can be to the assigned reading and/or the lesson material).
In your two peer responses, please let each of your peers know if you can follow the logic of their methodology.
For example: I understand your RQ and DV, but I don’t quite understand your IVS. Also, I am not quite sure how your hypothesis provides a direct answer to your RQ.
It is also okay to let your peer know that you can follow the logic of their methodology quite easily, which is also quite valuable feedback. For example: I understand how your RQ, DV, IVs, and Hypothesis are connected and relate to one another.
Your feedback will let your peers know how effective and logical their proposed methodology is to outsiders. Your critique should be substantive in nature and designed to improve your classmates’ methodology and help them refine in further.
Instructions: Fully utilize the materials that have been provided to you in order to support your response.
Your initial post must address each aspect of the format I have provided (there is no required word count), and to earn more points should include at least one direct reference to the assigned reading and a complete citation for it at the bottom of your post.
Please respond to at least two other students. Peer responses must be a minimum of 100 words and be substantive as I have indicated above. The goal is to provide your peers with feedback that is specific and helpful.
Feel free to provide a response to my query, but it is not required for you to do so. You will, however, earn more points for responding to my query.
Forum posts are graded on timeliness, relevance, knowledge of the weekly readings, and the quality of original ideas. While proper APA is not required, attribution to sources that informed your posting should be included. Refer to the grading rubric for additional details concerning grading criteria.
