Post a thoughtful reflection response for two students. Please respond to those students who provide feedback on your post — a “back-and-forth” discussion can be fruitful for learning.
7A – Compare and contrast Eakins’s The Gross Clinic and The Agnew Clinic in a minimum of 200-250 words. Include in your analysis your opinion about whether Eakins’s paintings should be more rightly considered Realist or Naturalist. 7B – Reflect on the impact of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle on the American public. Many naturalist writers and artists hoped to have social impact, but not many always saw this fulfilled in their lifetimes. Why do you think Sinclair’s The Jungle resulted in more measurable changes than other naturalist works? Suggested response length of minimum of 200-250 words.
6A – Summarize Henry Adams’s use of the dynamo as a symbol of the coming era. How does he contrast the symbol of the dynamo with the symbol of the virgin (meaning the Virgin Mary) in the chapter in his autobiography about his experience at the World’s Fair in Paris in 1900? What does he most seek to communicate about society at the turn of the century through the use of these symbols? Bonus points for how Adams’s uses the two other male figures in that chapter, both friends of his who accompanying him (albeit separately) around the Hall of Dynamos at the World’s Fair, to support this symbolic distinction. 6B – While many people were moved by Jacob Riis’s photographs and his exhibition on How the Other Half Lives, other considered that kind of approach to photography “vulgar.” Try to put yourself in the mindset of audiences c.1900. How could Riis’s documentary approach to photography be both lauded and criticized? Use at least one specific photograph to help support your point.

Create an 8-12-slide PowerPoint that presents a potential pathway and plan to implement a national health insurance program in the United States. As you explore the physician services market and the hospital market, you will have an opportunity to explore concepts such as supplier-induced demand and cost shifting. The efficiency of physician and hospital services will be explored, as well as price competition of both physicians and hospitals. Since the price that a hospital or physician charges for services is rarely paid, you will have the opportunity to think about the relevance of price and why we even have prices today. National health insurance is a highly debated topic in the United States. This assessment focus on creating an outline for a plausible national health insurance program, which will bring into consideration a number of factors, such as financing structure of national health insurance, and think about the advantages and disadvantages of a single-payer system, employee mandates, and refundable tax credits. You will have an opportunity to look at our neighbor, Canada, and compare the Canadian health system to that of the United States. What are some of the benefits of the Canadian health care system and do those benefits outweigh the costs, such as longer wait times? As you finalize your assessment you will pick a sidefor or againstnational health insurance. Demonstration of ProficiencyBy successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria: Competency 1: Analyze historical perspectives and current trends in the health care industry.Explain how legislation has supported or failed to support national health insurance in the United States.Competency 2: Assess the United States health care system from an economic perspective.Analyze the implications of national health insurance on access, utilization, technological advancements, cost, and growth in the United States.Competency 3: Analyze the evolving economic reimbursement trends, methods, and technology.Explain the necessary reimbursement changes that would be required to transition to national health insurance in the United States.Competency 4: Analyze how economic and stakeholder influences affect operational planning and decision making.Explain the necessary operational changes that would be required to transition to national health insurance in the United States.Competency 5: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others and is consistent with expectations for health care professionals.Write following APA style for in-text citation, quotes, and references.Write clearly and logically, with correct use of spelling, grammar, punctuation, and mechanics.ContextFor almost a century, the U.S. health care system has been a hot topic of debate and a central issue in all political agendas. Many argue that the United States should have national health insurance, similar to Canada, so care is accessible to everyone. Others argue that national health insurance leads to longer wait times and decreased quality. InstructionsIn this assessment, you will consider everything you have learned in this course, including the history of the U.S. health care system, reimbursement methodologies, technology, and operational concerns. Make an argument, grounded in research, for whether or not the United States should implement national health insurance.

InstructionsThe main purpose of this assignment is to select a real life contemporary urban issue, and to identify relevant stakeholders that are involved. Stakeholders can be individuals, organizations, public/private interests, (non)- formal groups, and (non)-state actors that have a vested interest in the outcome of a decision-making process. First, you should identify a specific urban issue/problem in a metropolitan region. This issue can be based in any country you choose. See the Toronto Vital Signs 2019 report for possible topics. Second, create your list of stakeholders, and then prioritize and organize them in terms of relevance. (i.e., Who has power? Who has agency? Who has the most support?) Then, place the stakeholders you consider as the most relevant in the centre of your map, with the less relevant actors placed at the periphery. Thirdly, identify and label the connections, networks, and coalitions (i.e., actual or potential) between your stakeholders. Consider how the actions, or inaction, of each stakeholder can affect others on your map. Finally, critique and analyze your map through the perspectives or lenses of two different stakeholders that you have identified. (300 words) Additional things to consider: How does scale improve or impair your overall analysis? Are there any large/external factors that may play a role in your issue? How do temporal factors affect the issue?
