Discussion Topic 7: One of my biggest fears for our immediate future is not cancer, it’s not a bird flu mutating into a human flu (like Spanish Flu did in the early 20th century). It’s not even our current COVID-19 pandemic. For that matter, disease and internal genetic maladies are not my main concern. What really does scare the crap out of me is the current move toward deliberate ignorance of scientific facts and scientific realities fueled by the laziness of people’s thought processes which has crept into our daily social fabric.

In today’s day and age, there is an immense amount of knowledge out there. In most cases, there is too much misinformation backed only by people’s opinions. These positions lack contextual and factual backing and have become a mainstay in peoples minds. People gravitate toward information that validates their suspicions even if those personal convictions directly contradict clear, objective, and observable scientific conclusions. Our electorate (YOU) in the US has never been this educated and flat out intelligent. We are the smartest we have ever been by any academic measure, but this intellectual inflation combined with the willful lack of fundamental scientific understanding creates mindsets in people where they THINKthey are informed/educated enough, well equipped enough, and even powerful enough to say “no that’s not true, I won’t believe it” based solely on their feelings while blatantly refusing to give deference and respect to the scientific process. The move toward anti-intellectualism is astounding. Furthermore, many treat science and the scientific process as a belief system. It is not. Viral kinetics do not care about your beliefs. Viruses will continue to do what they do regardless of human consciousness.

“Science is a fundamental part of the country that we are, but in this the 21st century, it seems to me the ability for people to judge what is true and what is and what is not reliable has been lost. When you have people that don’t know much about science standing in denial of it, and rising to power, that is a recipe for the complete dismantling of our informed democracy.” – Neil DeGrasse Tyson

We currently have 535 people in Congress that run this nation. There are only 2 people with PhD’s from a STEM field, Bill Foster of Illinois (Physics) and Jerry McNerney of California (Mathematics). This lack of scientific input at the top of power in our country worries me greatly, and further, the complacency of our nation in the outright denial of basic science truly terrifies me. This is slowly changing as the new 117th Congress set the record for the number of degrees coming from STEM fields by members of Congress. A bachelors degree is a great start, but our leaders need to be doctorally educated in their fields in order to provide the soundest scientific judgement as we move forward as a species.

Scientific Literacy

1. What are your instinctual thoughts after viewing the short video?

2. How important do you think it is for our electorate and our leaders to be scientifically literate?

please respond to these two students’ posts

Haylee

1. I fully agree. If I am being honest, it seems that people believe their opinions to be facts and that their opinions are the only ones that can be true. In reality, it is almost impossible to prove something as fact, and for something to get even remotely close, it has to go through test after test and be reviewed so many times that it becomes an emergent truth, but still no fact. Science is powerful, and you can’t just believe it to be untrue when it has been tested and proven to be a truth by years and years of research. I think that science and politics are tied together, not two separate things that are against each other.

2. Because science and politics are tied so close together in my opinion, it is essential that our electors and leaders are scientifically literate. If someone is going to run our country or help to run our country, they need to be well versed in many things so that they can make decisions that are just and well educated, so they can make decisions that are in the best interest for many people and our environment.

1. What are your instinctual thoughts after viewing the short video?

After vieweing this short video one thought that immediately stucked with me was when he said, “When you have an established scientific emergent truth, it is true whether or not you believe it.” It is important to educate and let people know of scientific facts that will affect everyone and from then on if people choose to believe it or not, it is still happening and these issues should be taken care of instead of builiding ideas that people want to believe in in order to gain popularity.

2. How important do you think it is for our electorate and our leaders to be scientifically literate?

I think it is very important for our electorate and our leaders to be scientifically literate because I believe that with knowledgable leaders, society would be able to progress more especially when it comes laws and rules to be able to take care of ourselves and the planet. I think that, like Mr. Tyson said, I believe that if we had more leaders that are scientifically literate they’d be able to encourage we’d be able to make this a human right issue to act on instead of politicizing it and buidling debates on it.

BIOL 180 American Military University Biology Outline

Objective: Organize your thoughts and the main points of your research for your final presentation

Your outline must be formatted as described and exemplified in the example attached. Please note that this format will be assessed in your grade:

  • Use an alphanumeric sequence
  • Sections should be indented and aligned
  • Follow the suggested order of the required elements
  • Use brief but detailed and descriptive phrases.

Your outline should contain the following elements in this order, and please note that some of these should be your personal observations

ANIMALS:

I. The Introduction Section

A. Organism Introduction

1. The common and scientific name of your organism.

2. Where you observed your organism (country, state, park, zoo, etc.)

3. A brief discussion on why you chose your organism

4. If possible, a picture and/or video of you safely observing your species in the field. If not possible, search the Internet for an image (and remember to cite your source for the image) in a typical habitat. (The animal i chose is the albino alligator in Gatorland Orlando at the Fun Spot.)

II. The Body

A. Description

1. You must include a brief physical description. You can use your personal observations. If you cannot safely observe your organism, you must research.

a. Size, Coloring, etc.

B. Life Cycle and Reproduction

1. Life Cycle: describe the life cycle of your organism. The life cycle refers to the series of changes that happens from the beginning of life as your organism develops and grows into a mature organism.

2. Reproduction: You must discuss the reproductive strategies of your organism (e.g. release of gametes by a fish or hermaphroditic reproduction in earthworms), mate choice, mating displays, mate competition and mating systems.

C. Structure and Function

1. Please select one organ system of your organism that you find to be particularly interesting and describe both the anatomy and physiology of that system.

2. If your organism is an animal, here are a list of the general animal organ systems

D. Energy Ecology

1. If you can observe these, that is best. If not, research.

2. What are the food sources? Types? Amounts? Temporal pattern of feeding? Specific handling or processing of food items by the organism (e.g. the way a squirrel manipulates an acorn)

E. Habitat

1. Where your organism lives. This does not refer to a city or state, but rather the natural environment in which your organism lives.

2. You should consider abiotic factors, such as soil, water, etc., as well as biotic factors, such as predators, hosts, etc.

III. The Conclusion Section

A. This section should contain four to six points that sum up the main points from the body of the outline.

B. Start your conclusive section with one sentence summarizing some basic information about your chosen organism (name and geographical distribution).

C. Continue with a brief summary (1-2 sentences) about the life cycle and any particular body structures.

D. Include a brief summary (1-2 sentences) about the ecological role of your chosen organism in its ecosystem.

E. Wrap up the conclusive section with a closing note that provides brief information about a unique fact and/or behavior of your chosen organism.

IV. The Reference Section:

A. This is not just the reference page; rather, referencing should occur throughout the outline as it will in your presentation. Therefore, your outline should include both a separate reference page containing a minimum of five sources listed in proper APA reference list format AND internal citations throughout the outline where appropriate. Please be sure to see the resources below for assistance regarding in-text citations and reference list formatting, and/or ask me if you have any additional questions.

Here are the sources I’ve previously used.

A1 Business and Technical College Biology Lab Report

NYU Experimental Chemical Transformation Essay

Lab

We changed the heat shock to 30 seconds instead of 90 seconds.

It didn’t work because we didn’t see any colonies on the plates.

LB- one lawn plus 17 colonies

LB+ 8 colonies

LB/AMP+ no colonies

LB/AMP- no colonies

Hypothesis: reducing the heat shock time from 90 seconds to 30 seconds will produce more ecoli and all plates will have more growth.

Null hypothesis: reducing the heat shock time from 90 seconds to 30 seconds will produce less ecoli and all plates will have no growth.

Hypothesis was wrong since no ecoli was produced on LB/AMP+ and LB/AMP-, which means that reducing the heat shock time does not work.
