CHYS 2P10 Lecture 2: CHYS+2P10+Lecture+2
Our vehicles have come a long way from the Model T in the early 1900s. Each year the car industry comes out with new styles and incorporates new technologies. In recent history, the focus of the automotive world has shifted to fuel efficiency and even the possibility of using different fuel sources. As the world tries to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels societies all over the world are looking towards a future with a totally new kind of car. There are already hybrid cars on the roads today. What will the cars of the future run on?
This unit, you are going to do a little role-playing. Here is the scenario:
Congratulations! You have been elected to the Kaplanville Town Council's Steering Committee on Infrastructure and Energy. Kaplanville wants to make a name for itself as a premier city for renewable and alternative energy choices. As a member of this committee, you are responsible for researching the exciting new world of alternative fuel for vehicles. Through this exploratory committee, you will decide on your top choice for an alternative fuel station to construct in Kaplanville.
Do some research to learn more about alternative fuels:

Use your research to complete the following three components to this unit's discussion:
1. Post at least one pro and one con for at least three of the following alternative fuel sources: (Note: to maximize your learning, please try not to repeat the information that was previously shared by your classmates).
c. Natural gas
2. During the unit, you should interact with your classmates and debate how suitable you think these alternative fuel sources might be for the future of vehicle transportation and Kaplanville.
3. Later in the unit week, make a post that contains your vote for which alternative fuel source you believe Kaplanville should create a station for. Be sure to give a clear explanation for your choice.
Be sure to review the Discussion Board Grading Rubric provided in the Course Syllabus.

Write a 350 word summary on the above questions, I am needing help to start the summary some good pointers and possibly a good summary to get my brain going on how to approach these questions. Please ellaborate
Worldwide energy consumption varies dramatically, but the impacts are shared by all. The most commonly used fuel sources for energy around the world are the fossil fuels: coal, oil, and natural gas. Combustion of fossil fuels releases pollutants to the atmosphere, where the emissions from all countries combine to cause local, regional, and global issues. One of the primary pollutants of concern is carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. Carbon dioxide emissions are responsible for climate change and governments around the world have taken steps to control pollution, but not all countries are successful in reducing carbon emissions.
While all countries produce pollution and emit greenhouse gasses, the emissions are greatly unequal across the globe. Consider what kinds of factors would determine how much energy is used by a country, a region, a household, or an individual. What factors would influence the fuel choices made by these people and institutions?
Conduct research to determine the common fuel sources, emissions, and total energy consumption by the United States and a developing country of your choice, such as China, India, or Brazil.

Â· What are the primary sources of emissions? What is the industrial or agricultural profile of the country?
Â· What are the similarities and differences in the fuel sources, emissions, and consumption between the two countries?
Â· What are the countriesâ levels of involvement in worldwide emissions regulations?
Â· Discuss solutions or regulations to energy use in high-demand countries. How can high-use and low-use countries work together to reduce overall emissions?
Â· In working together to make these reductions, how would you address possible cultural differences and diversity concepts that will emerge because of this partnership? Describe how low and high use countries can bridge cultural differences through strategic partnerships.
Â· Support your arguments with documented evidence from credible sources using APA formatting and an APA style reference page.
I am looking for some notes on how to get this essay of 1000 words or more started. Please help by giving good detailed notes for each question. I would really appreciate some help so I can get started on making my research paper. Any help is much appreciated I am stuck on how to approach this topic!
As a newly minted CPA, you obtain your first significantposition as a tax professional: senior tax accountant for one ofthe offices of a regional accounting firm. Of course, the firm runsa notice of your hiring in the local newspaper. A few days later,the editor of the newspaper calls you and asks if you might beinterested in writing a monthly column for the newspaper on taxissues. Figuring that it would be a good way to get your name outin the community as an expert in the field (and a little freeadvertising to boot!), you tell him that you would be more thanhappy to do so. "Great! " he says. "By the way, I have alreadyblocked out space for this column in the next edition of the paper.Is there any way that you can get me your article by the end of theday today?" After you commit to doing so, he also proceeds to tellyou that you will not be paid for these articles. "I figure that itis just a sort of public service that you could offer to thecommunity. I am sure you understand." (And so it begins.... Getused to a lot of this.) You spend the next 10 minutes thinkingabout what you could discuss in your first article. You would liketo shake people up a little bit, and perhaps challenge theiropinions about some issues of tax law. That way, you could perhapsbuild up some interest in your column, which, as you know, will bedifficult to achieve under the best of circumstances! (After all,who wants to read newspaper articles about taxes?)
Finally, you decide on a topic: You will argue to the readersthat the federal income tax should be abolished and replaced with anational property tax that is levied on both personal property andreal estate.
Required: Write an article arguing this position. You may or maynot agree with this proposition. However, based on the materialscovered in this course and the discussions that have occurred inthe Discussion areas, you should be able to articulate a cogent,persuasive argument in support of this proposition. In particular,reference theories, concepts, justifications, and anticipatedeconomic, social, and/or other benefits that would result from sucha system. To the extent that you think strong contrary argumentscould be made, consider raising those contrary arguments and thenpersuasively arguing against them. Your answer to this questionwill be evaluated based on the thoroughness, professionalism,substance, and persuasiveness of your argument.
