Harrop and McWilliams on the concept of “food miles”. Write down everything you eat and drink for one school day. Is there anything about your list that surprises you? How much thought did you give to what you consumed that day? Why? How much do you know about what you consumed that day – its nutritional value, where it came from and so on? What kinds of things do you think you should know that you do not? What might this imply about American diets as a whole, and what might you conclude about your food consumption? 4. In “Not For Sale” Professor Jones questions the role of money in academic research. In order for research to be done, someone has to pay for it – usually corporations or the government. Land grant schools such as Rutgers were created in order to do agricultural research to benefit farmers and indirectly the public. Given that land grant schools are doing more research in tandem with corporations, Professor Jones asks what will happen if research that might be the most beneficial will not be done because there is no profit in it. What do you make of this issue? What would you like to see happen in terms of which research gets done and which doesn’t? Why? If you can find examples of what you consider to be worthwhile research and examples of what you consider not to be worthwhile, that would be helpful. 5. Most of the people of Maragoli clearly do not see population as a problem in their lives, although they do list a number of things they do see as problems. Joseph Ssenyonga, the filmmaker, says that he went there thinking that population was the main problem, but that he came to see their problems as “more complicated” after living among them. How do you see the role of population in Maragoli? Is it their fundamental problem, as a Neomalthusian would say? Is it a significant problem among many as a Moderate would claim? Is it a non- problem as a High Tech would believe, or a false problem as a Marxist would argue?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
