• What do you think the word healthy means?
• If you saw healthy on a food label, what ingredients would you think that food contained? What ingredients do you think it would not contain?
• If you were to pick 5 foods that you would label as healthy, what would they be? Why?Read the document called “RP #3 Readings” that is posted on Moodle. After reading the document, answer the following questions:
a. What reasons does the FDA give for reconsidering the definition of healthy?
b. Summarize KIND, LLC’s argument about the current use of the word healthy on food labels. What foods do they say should be labeled as healthy but do not meet current regulations?
c. Compare and contrast Ballentine and Nestle’s arguments from the NPR article.
d. What are the current rules for labeling something as healthy, and why does Nestle say that this works in the interest of the food manufacturers, not the consumer?The FDA requested public comment on the use of the word “healthy” in food labeling. Pretend you are going to submit your own comment to the FDA. Prepare a 400-500-word comment using information learned from Part I and Part II of this RP. Below you will see directions from the FDA, including some questions to spark ideas.

Response paper 1
Select 5 people who eat out at least once or twice a week and who will make an educated (v. random) guess. Please collect their answers separately so that they do not influence each other. Read the summary of 5 studies in the document labeled “RP #1 Readings. Based on what you’ve learned from your own data gathering and from the studies you read about, write a ~650-750 word essay in which you make a reasoned judgment as to whether you think menu labeling should be required by restaurants and the way in which that information should be presented
RACIAL MEASUREMENT IN THE AMERICAN CENSUS: Past Practices and Implications for the Future
RACIAL MEASUREMENT IN THE AMERICAN CENSUS: Past Practices and Implications for the Future. THE ROLE AND SIGNIFICANCE OF PUBLIC DATA ABOUT RACE. HISTORICAL ANTECEDENTS
1790 to 1840
Although the primitive ideas of Enlightenment scientists did not have much direct
influence on the political organization of the United States, the founding fathers
and certainly, the Constitutional framers such as Thomas Jefferson were deeply
influenced by Enlightenment thinking (Fredrickson 2002). These ideas set the
parameters for the Constitutional debates about who would be considered a bona
fide citizen of the new nation-state. The 1850 census coincided with a number of important scientific and political developments in U.S. history. By 1850, ethnology and eugenics—scientific racism—exerted an enormous influence on ideas about racial differences (Fredrickson
2002). RACIAL DATA AND THE GENESIS OF THE OFFICE OF
MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET DIRECTIVE NO. 15. The implementation of Directive No. 15 was first manifest in the 1980 census.
Conveniently, Directive No. 15 more or less validated the racial categories used in
the 1970 census. From the first days of the United States, notions of race have been a central theme
in public discourse and a guiding principle in public administration. Appropriately enough, beginning with the first census in 1790, the federal government has
endeavored to measure race throughout the history of this nation. Over time, the
federal government modified and elaborated its methods for obtaining information about the racial composition of the population. Not surprising, these changes
mirrored public thinking and concern about race in American society.
In the twentieth century, the struggle for racial equality galvanized public attention in much the same way that slavery had in the previous century. The civil rights
movement and its pursuit of equal access to education, housing, employment, and
public services underscored the need for a careful record of conditions among the
races. Social scientists brought their expertise to bear on these problems, and the
result was the vast expansion of the federal statistical system. For most purposes,
the Census Bureau and the decennial census served as the flagship for this system.

Honors Biology Class Notes - Unit 5: Artificial and Natural Selection & Evolution
These are all 6 pages of my comprehensive class notes for my Honors Biology High School Course. This fifth unit (Unit 4 was skipped - hence why I have no notes for sale for that unit) is Artificial and Natural Selection & Evolution which discusses topics such as Artificial and Natural Selection, the Theory of Evolution, the process of Speciation, Binomial Nomenclature (classification of species through genus and species names) as well as Relative and Radiometric dating. As you can see, this Biology Unit is especially plentiful in information and, as usual, these class notes include extensive lists of comprehensive, color-coordinated vocabulary from each Lesson. Vocabulary words are written in different colored pens to maximize understanding and attention (many people are visual learners, meaning they may be able to connect a certain color to a word, enhancing understanding and ensuring a better memory for tests, exams and essays!). Vocab definitions are clear and concise and you can access all of this information and vocab in a clear, easy-to-navigate PDF form for only $6 ($1 per page!)
Honors Biology Class Notes - Unit 3: Genes & DNA Processes
These are all 11 pages of my comprehensive class notes for my Honors Biology High School Course. This third unit is Genes & DNA Processes which discusses topics such as Meiosis I and Meiosis II, Crossing-Over, the differences between DNA and RNA as well as includes extensive lists of comprehensive, color-coordinated vocabulary from each Lesson. Vocabulary words are written in different colored pens to maximize understanding and attention (many people are visual learners, meaning they may be able to connect a certain color to a word, enhancing understanding and ensuring a better memory for tests, exams and essays!). As always, vocabulary definitions are clear and concise and there are a few charts and hand-drawn diagrams to help maximize understanding for certain concepts (especially helpful for us visual learners!) These notes can be downloaded in a PDF form.
