Creating a poster in PowerPoint, initially set the paper size to A0 (84.1 x 118.9 cm)
The poster will focus on the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland. The poster is intended for researchers and landowners in the Cairngorms National Park.
I send an example of the poster’s format and send the poster’s primary source Please use it as one of the sources.
* This assessment will allow you to bring together the knowledge that you have acquired over the week and integrate it with peer reviewed published scientific papers. Activity: Based discussions you have had, the papers that you read, and your experience during the course, you now need to design a scientific poster. The aim of this poster will be explore one (or more) different topics within the National park and identify the conflicts and scientific issues.
* Consider the evidence from the scientific papers
* Integrating scientific evidence with experiences during the residential field trip
* Not a classic scientific research poster – E.g. does not have to have a methods, results etc sections
* Looking for critical evaluation
* Focused and innovative
* Target audience – Informed scientific group / national park stake holders
* Make use of images, figures and tables
Critically analyse your policy issue through the lens of agenda setting.
The essay should use conceptual models, theories and frameworks introduced during the module. You can use a range of resources, including academic papers, policy statements and documents, grey literature and news media sources. Your essay should be fully referenced.
An effective analysis should include:
an explanation and justification for choosing your conceptual approach. This includes why your chosen approach is appropriate for analysing the policy you have decided to focus on
in-depth research on the case study, including identification of actors involved, and appropriate mapping of the conceptual approach onto your chosen policy case
a clear argument which is fully supported by evidence and logically structured.
Reference should be in Harvard style. I will provide examples and some links for information here.
What will happen if the RE100 is fully introduced

Manuscriipts submitted to journals are peer-reviewed before publishing. These reviews can be brutally honest and may require a significant rewrite of the manuscriipt before being accepted for publication. It is also not uncommon for manuscriipts to be rejected by popular journals.
Researchers may also go through an “on the spot” peer review during the question-and-answer period after verbally presenting their research at conferences. Many of the questions asked may seem like a direct assault on the researcher’s methods and conclusions and can cause apprehension in unprepared presenters.
In addition to manuscriipts and formal talks, posters are a form of publication. Poster presentations require scientists to succinctly present their research. Typically, students present their research as posters at scientific conferences, where they not only present their work, but are also asked detailed questions about their methods and conclusions as well. Many will receive both compliments and constructive criticism on their work and future research directions from their peers, mentors, and session judges.
As you can imagine, scientific researchers must develop a thick skin to get through the peer-review process and learn how to accept criticism with aplomb.
For this discussion:
Watch the video found in your module resources for tips on poster presentation formats.
Read the eBook: Leadership in Science and Technology: A Reference Handbook, Chapter 44: Peer Review as a guide for understanding what a peer review entails. (Attached)
Use the Poster Peer Review Guiding Questions document to assist you in your review. (Attached)
After completing those three tasks, review the following scientific posters:
Seasonal dynamics of Totten Ice Shelf controlled by sea ice buttressing (scroll down to bottom of page)
Microbial diversity in Mediterranean sponges as revealed by metataxonomic analysis
A deep learning cell classification and sorting platform for single cell high-dimensional morphology characterization
In your initial discussion post, select one of the poster presentation examples and conduct a peer review of that poster presentation, focusing on the following aspects: Title, Review of Literature (Background Information), Methods, Organization, Tables and Figures, Conclusions and Recommendations, and Literature Cited. Make sure to explain your reasoning for the statements that you include.
You are to write a critical essay or conduct a case study exploring a topic of interest and its connection to innovation in the public sector. The paper is to be between 2-4 pages in length, 1.5 spaced with a 12 point font (arial or times new roman).
Your essay should include the following:
Topic area of choice. Transportation, Housing, Criminal Justice, Education, or a topic from your previous assignments.
I choose Reduce Accidents and Improve Safety in School Zone Neighborhoods within the United States since it is relate to previous assignment. I have attached this previous assignment below. One is expert interview one is policy memo.
Your essay should describe the topic area of choice, and the identification of a city (US or global) where the application of innovation will contribute to an improved condition. Describe why you selected both the city as well as the innovation. Why is your selected city worthy as a case? What challenge is your identified city facing in the topic area that you select, where a specific innovation might be implemented to address the issue? Describe the (2-3) pros and possible (1-2) cons of your proposed innovation? What will decision makers need to know in order to successfully implement the innovation? To conclude the paper, please offer suggestions around what your identified city might look like as a result of successfully implementing the innovation as a solution.
Requirements for a writer：
1. improve the quality of the article. You can cut the number of words and content to ensure the essay’s quality.
2. enhance the coherence and logic of the article.
3. Fix grammatical errors.
I am looking for a skilled writer preferably from a larger city like New York to discuss the effects Gentrification has on local neighborhoods and populations. For example, New York has a housing crisis whereby the demand vastly outweighs the supply of affordable housing. Prior mayors have prioritized the expansion and preservation of affordable housing by providing low cost financing to owners of multi-family buildings for energy efficiency and rehabilitation projects.
To me it seems that these programs are focusing on building owners and it sometimes loses focus of the low income tenants soon to be displaced because of gentrification.
Low income households don’t welcome Starbucks or Chipotles for example because in their eyes, its just the beginning of skyrocketing rent increases.
You’ll be working on a proposal that can suggest ways to remediate a situation or conflict you identify in your environs such as gentrification. Using the concept of scale as applied to the group work, draw a careful boundary around the portion of the system you feel compelled and equipped to address. There is no correlation between scales and the amount of effort needed to complete this assignment – I expect thoughtful, well-researched responses in all cases.
The submission will take the form of a paper approximately 2,500-3,500 words in length (excluding footnotes and bibliography), including diagrams and images that help to facilitate your observations, analysis and research. The paper should be footnoted (in your preferred format) and include a bibliography.
Please do not pad your writing to reach your word count.
During the last three global environmental conferences, India and China argued that they should be exempt from limits on the production of greenhouse gases, and that most of the decrease in greenhouse emissions globally should come from developed countries.
Where do you stand on this issue?
How would India and China’s proposal affect efforts to combat climate change?
There are three main approaches to dealing with solid waste: landfills, incineration, and composting.
Which method is most preferable? Why?
Can you think of ways to improve of the collection and waste disposal practices in the area where you live?
How could you limit or decrease your own personal output of solid waste?
