Must receive in 2 hours. APA format.      
The textbook states that air pollution is generally worse in developing countries than in highly developed countries. One reason for this is that cleaner technologies can be more expensive than older, less-polluting technologies. 

However, this is not always the case: sometimes cleaner technologies can be cheaper, and sometimes developing countries can focus on less-polluting industries as they develop.

For example, running telephone answering services is far less polluting than producing low-quality steel.

Identify two technologies that are less polluting and less expensive than earlier versions of that technology, and two developmental alternatives to highly polluting industries.

How might these technologies be adopted in developing countries? I

Include the social, economic, infrastructure, or other limitations on their adoption in your response.

Now create a report that includes a discussion and analysis regarding how such a supplier makes such a determination in order to maximize the firm’s profits. Include in your response:
A discussion of exactly what costs are associated with profit maximization.
A discussion of the concept of “opportunity cost.”
A discussion of the alternative production opportunities.
A discussion of the various constraints which firms face in maximizing their economic profit.

Consider only these literary periods:

The Renaissance (Shakespeare’s sonnets #18, 29 and 130; “Is This a Dagger I See before Me” from Macbeth; “To Be or not to Be” from Hamlet)
The Enlightenment (Tartuffe by Molière; Candide by Voltaire)

Choose one author’’s work. You may not use authors or texts that are not assigned in the lessons.

Then, choose one of the themes in the list below. Do not try to combine them. To be effective, the theme must be working throughout the text you chose in Step 2.

Themes for Essay #1 (Choose 1):


Write 3 pages of analysis.

Do not use secondary sources. Use your own ideas and the works you are analyzing, not something you found on the Internet or anywhere else except your own head. You may use links provided for historical background, etc. However, be sure you are using only the links in the course. It’’s all too easy to go from a link on a web page in the course to a different web page outside the course. Make sure you treat those linked web pages in the course like the sources they are, with signal phrases that identify the title of the web page, quotation or paraphrase from the web page, and a parenthetical citation (use paragraph numbers for a website even if that means you have to count the paragraphs yourself). Outside sources will lower your grade.

Introduce all source material (quotations and paraphrases) adequately with a signal phrase rather than “dropping” them into the paper with no introduction. You should provide a signal phrase before each quotation or paraphrase, giving some context for the quotation.

Use parenthetical citations for all source material. Keep in mind that different genres required different information in the parenthetical citations. Follow MLA requirements for parenthetical notation as shown in the template section below.

MLA-style documentation requires a Works Cited. Start your Works Cited on a new page after your essay. Include all the sources you used in your essay.

All questions must be done on separate word documents with references
Question 1
Watch the seven-minute interview with retired four-star General Jack Keane. Keane is interviewed by Paul Gigot on the Journal Editorial Report on current Global Security events. (click and open in new window) 
http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/journal-editorial-report/index.html#/v/5267036282001 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.)
Read the House Homeland Security snapshots, the first released early 2016, the second released May 2017, both worthy of discussion as we wrap up EM 102. Take a look at this snapshot (see Course Materials). Draw some conclusions of whether current homeland security policy is consistent or inconsistent with findings in the snapshot. How are your conclusions influenced by the analysis discussed presented by Keane as it relates to homeland security? 
Also, consider the snapshot in the context of the backlash against law enforcement this past year whether it is shootings, such as Dallas, or the public outrage against aggressive community policing actions intended to protect neighborhoods but perceived otherwise (ie. New York City). Whether it is Islamist terrorist or police shootings, both are attacks against our frontline of homeland security defense.
Are new threats emerging that can undermine homeland security in your state? Jurisdiction?
Discuss whether you would do anything differently at your state level homeland security department as a result of these findings.

Question 2
In Chapter 15, Oliver, W.M., Marion, N.E., & Hill, J.B. (2015) suggest that Homeland Security is vulnerable to the “Issue Attention Cycle” (Downs, 1972) and that the political environment contributes to the public’s declining level of interest in securing the homeland as funding levels are cut across the board. Review the Oliver, et. al. (2015) reference and then read the article by Anthony Downs (1972) to gain perspective on their thesis. Consider your study of homeland security and note gaps that you have either experienced or are now aware of and use it as a case study. Apply Downs’ five stages of the “Issue Attention Cycle” and complete an analysis of your selected topic in a three to four page essay.
Your topics can be discipline-centric (i.e., public health funding or declining manpower pool), supplies (vaccine production readiness), or hazard-related (private sector dam vulnerability). Equally, topic selection can target a domain as described by Oliver, et. al., (2015) in Chapter 15 such as illegal immigration and the border. The topic could also apply to public complacency but define your topic carefully and scholarly. Use references to support topic selection.
For example, mental health and institutions peaked in the 1970 – 1980s but since then federal funding to support programs and infrastructure was cut dramatically. As a result, treatment centers are not as prolific as they once were, actually gone, (per capita) and citizens with mental health issues are represented among those who commit horrific terrorist’s acts against fellow citizens. As the public’s attention for mental health disappeared, so did the financial support from elected officials. As a result, society is now presented with a different mix of social problems described as lone-wolf terrorism, extremism and self-radicalization.
This assignment should take 3 to 5 hours to complete. It is valued at 50 points for grading.
Prepare a three- to four-page paper to share your analysis of homeland security and its vulnerability to the  “Issue Attention Cycle” as described by Downs (1972). Cite references that you use in APA Style. When using APA for this assignment, no need for a cover page or abstract. Do maintain 1″ margins, use third person and include references. Be sure to address these questions:

Briefly review the five stages of Downs “Issue Attention Cycle.”
Introduce your selected topic and why it fits as a study for the Issue Attention Cycle.
Conduct an analysis of your topic, comparing it to the five stages of Down’s cycle.
Conclude your analysis by summarizing what stage of the cycle your topic fits into as a result of your analysis. Support your position with source references.
