HIS 303 Week 1 DQ 1 English Politics and Political Traditions
English Politics and Political Traditions
Americans often imagine that their political institutions and principles are unique and unheralded; yet, many of them might be traced back to the heritage of England at the time the colonies were first formed, and over the course of the colonial period as English political institutions evolved. Identify the ways that English politics and political traditions influenced the political and legal institutions of colonial America.
What aspects of the English political heritage did the colonists claim for themselves? How did English institutions and principles evolve in the colonies? How and why had English and American conceptions of their shared political heritage diverged so sharply by the middle of the 1700s? What constitutional disagreements brought about the American Revolution?
In responding to the above questions, draw from the material in one of the following videos:

LAS432 Week 5 DQ 1 The Politics of Technology
Superior expertise about how technologies work does not guarantee superior judgment about how they should be used, regulated, or governed. As technology becomes more sophisticated, how can citizens and political leaders judge and understand whether a given technology offers great perils or great promises? When great technological projects, such as venturing farther into the galaxy or developing new life-extending medicines, are proposed, how should government officials make decisions about how tax dollars should be spent?
Think of birth control pills, an Olympic runner in a race with artificial legs, video technology that can now pry into our private lives on the street. Electric and electronic technologies that drain our power grid. Cars crowding streets and poisoning the air and changing the international dynamic due to the importance of oil. Life extension medical technologies that have the effect of rising our medical costs as more seriously ill people more old people are living longer often with a low quality of life. There was little government involvement in technology issues and developments in the past but now we are beset by a host of questions produced by more and more technological innovation. Environmental issues are rising to the forefront and suggested remedies for the prevention of ruining our environment have price tags in the billions and trillions. How should governments deal with these issues. The Chinese government enforces a “one-child” policy. It is difficult to imagine the US government trying such a policy here. But how can these decisions be made or shall we just let technology happen and then try to deal with the consequences on a personal level?
MHA 601 Week 2 DQ 1 Analysis of Power and Politics within Healthcare Organizations
Analysis of Power and Politics within Healthcare Organizations. Review Chapter 8 of your course text, including the section on Henry Mintzberg’s political games which begins on page 143. The chapter’s author has provided a depiction of each political game element as it pertains to health professionals in a health care organization. Identify a professional organization in which you have worked or volunteered (it does not have to be related to health) and describe its members. Evaluate each member as you determine their basis of power within the organization. Identify any political games that you were aware of by members of the staff or any ancillary employees/volunteers. Additionally, identify any political games that you were aware of that were played by the managers, administration, and/or the Board of Directors. If you did not witness or were not aware of any political games at your organization, describe a potential scenario of what a situation could look like for your selected workplace. Give two examples, one for the staff and one for someone in leadership. What were the motivations (or potential motivations) of why the games may have been pursued? Were there (or could there be) any negative impacts on an organization by the occurrence of these games? Give examples of the negative impacts. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.
SOC 315 Week 1 DQ 1 Political Culture Policy Preferences

To what degree, if any, did political culture play a role in the decision to go to war, the public’s support of the war, and how public officials discussed the war? Looking at this example, reflect back on historical events and provide another example of how a political culture affected policy preferences.
