Type 2 error: incline to diagnose a healthy person sick o Perceptions of patients’ lives and social relationships were diagnosed and shaped entirely around their given diagnosed (not the other way around) o Type 2 error in psychiatric diagnoses sticks with them forever. Seen as once insane and now might be better, not “cured” or completely sane anymore (or ever was) Facilities staffed selected 41 patients who they suspect with high confidence of being a pseudo patient when surveyed (and informed that there would be sane patients trying to infiltrate when there were none) = high margin of error. Chapter 2: Top 1% of households holds 40% of nation’s wealth, nearly equal what bottom 95% holds altogether By late 1990s, top 1% holds larger after-tax income that bottom 50% Poor and middle class bear severe cutbacks in education, health, environmental programs, other public services to reduce state and federal budget deficits while “ballooning tax giveaways” for wealthy households and corporations. Productivity went up but worker’s wage went down. Increased education but living standards are falling for younger generations Women earn 76 cents for every $1 men make Many other examples basically summing up that there are severe cutbacks in areas that help the poor in the U.S. The rich becomes richer through millionaire senators and speakers lobbying and taking more from the poor and misrepresenting their needs. A country that gives no opportunity for the poor to advance. Chapter 3: Religions condemned pigs as dirty animals and should not be eaten They might condemned them due to culture and environment restrains Pig farming was a threat to the integrity of the basic cultural and natural ecosystems of the Middle East o Pig farming did not fit overall pattern of mixed farming and pastoral complex practice in the middle east of herding o Pigs were threats to farmers o Share the same food source as man (grains, nuts, fruits, tubers) o Difficult to herd over distance and not a practical source of milk o Pigs can’t sweat, direct exposure to sunlight of the Jordan valley will kill them Pigs= Animals primarily raised for meat purpose only is a luxury. Difficult to raise, sufficient supply scarce Animals such as goats, sheep and cattle were raised for multiple purposes: plowing, meat, milk, cheese, hides, dung, fiber. Not all religiously sanctioned food practices have ecological explanations. Taboos also have social functions (think of themselves as a distinctive community)

    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.
