I believe the archaeologists were successful in preserving the history of the site while respecting current natives and also understanding a need for the new road.

Please response to the following post, one paragraph needed only.
Because the law requires archaeological surveys before building projects an amazing discovery was made in Colorado a few years ago. A Pueblo pit house believed to be around 1200 years old while a new road was under construction. There were human remains found at the site which made many local natives feel that this project was invading on their history and culture.This site was found among an area heavy with other cultural sites and any plans to reroute were to land on another historical/cultural site.This was a very sensitive excavation but all things considered it seems as though the locals were involved in consulting and as much information was preserved as possible. I believe although it was sad to have destroyed the beautiful ceremonial pits the excavation was handled as best as it could be. I believe the archaeologists were successful in preserving the history of the site while respecting current Natives and also understanding a need for the new road. Unfortunately situations like this come up from time to time and thanks to CRM there is someone to mitigate and balance these at times difficult situations. That being said, I still find this situation very sad and frustrating but it’s so much better than what archaeology has been in the past and I hope Archaeology continues to improve in this fashion.

As humans, we take for granted many things about our lives and how the world works, whether it is our notions of race or the cheap cost of a chocolate or a can of coke.

Throughout this book we will be exploring how anthropology’s holistic, cross-cultural, and comparative approach can help us think more deeply about other people and cultures and live more consciously in our global world. As humans, we take for granted many things about our lives and how the world works, whether it is our notions of race or the cheap cost of a chocolate or a can of Coke. But anthropologists often describe how doing fieldwork can make the familiar strange and the strange familiar.
For this essay, you will be asked to conduct an anthropological analysis of a familiar object. Can you make this most familiar cultural object unfamiliar? What would an anthropologist want to know about that can of Coke? What can you learn about yourself, your culture, or globalization in general from that can of Coke? Your task is to explore how the social life of a De Beer Diamonds intersects with the lives of people in each stage of its production, distribution, and consumption. Remember, anthropology is about people: do not just discuss ingredients, history, or manufacturing processes.
I will give 3 citations in chat

Goldstein (2016) argues that informal economies are a key aspect of urban, public life in the “majority world.”

Goldstein (2016) argues that informal economies are a key aspect of urban, public life in the “Majority World.” According to his text, what are the social, economic, legal, and political features of informal work in the market spaces of Cochabamba, Bolivia—and what is the role of the state and media in facilitating informal work?
Next, consider the moral features that connect informality to insecurity. Goldstein writes that “the production of informality by the state has also led to the proliferation of insecurity in those same spaces, producing conditions of violence, uncertainty, and criminality that make life there so difficult” (2016, 8). At this point in your essay, you might discuss how informality is historically produced, structurally mediated, and based on urban growth and state formation. You could write on concepts such as illegality, partial presence, disregulation, radical fluidity, neoliberalism, dispossession, flexibilization, a city’s identity, and/or disorder/chaos—but be sure to define and explain any concepts from the text in your own words if you use them. You may also make reference to content from the Guest (2020) textbook or course materials to support your analysis. (Include Chicago style in-text citations when quoting and when paraphrasing.)
Finally, comment on the anthropological project as understood by Goldstein (2016). What does he mean by “reality” and “truth” in ethnographic writing? What are the ethical conflicts and compromises he negotiated? What is the role of his research team in this process?.
Throughout your essay, be sure to use ethnographic details to illustrate your theoretical argument

It is up to you what belief system you choose to study.

For this assignment I would like you to first explore possible belief systems. The Quad provides a study starter for world religions, and I want you to take a close look at it. Go through each of the belief systems and determine which one you would be most interested in studying further:
https://thebestschools.org/magazine/world-religions-study-starters/Links to an external site.
You don’t need to choose one of these. You may study another belief system that is not registered in The Quad. It is up to you what belief system you choose to study. Keep in mind that it is best to research a belief system that you do not know about. It will be much easier to write a research paper about a belief system that you do not practice than one that you practice.
Write a 500 word proposal, double spaced that explains what belief system you will research, why you are using this specific belief system, and what sources you will use. Delineate an outline to discuss the origins and development of this belief system, who are its practitioners, what issues the belief system faces, and how it fits into this class. Carry out a literature review of each of the academic sources that you will be using for this assignment.
Sources: You need to provide at least five sources, four of which must be academic, that is, research on belief systems written in academic books or in peer reviewed journal articles. This is library work and you must make sure to go to our library and ask the librarian to help you using the library’s research tools if you’re unfamiliar with them. You may use your last non-academic sources to cite from a practitioner source, for instance the Koran, the Talmud, the Bible, etc. depending on the belief system that you are writing about. Websites that do not fit into any of these two categories are not appropriate sources for this assignment.

It is up to you to think of two different subjects to investigate.

This is your First publish Submission for Peer Review. You must submit a complete term paper according to the directions below. Two of your fellow students will read it and provide anonymous feedback to you. The goal is for them to tell you whether or not your paper meets the requirements of the assignment and how to fix it if it does not. They should also advise you if they believe that you have committed an act of academic dishonesty before your instructor reads your final submission and gives you a zero for the assignment.
Your Assignment:
First, explain how adaptation works. Using your own words and the correct vocabulary from the course, explain how populations adapt to their environments. This section does not require references.
Then, go to the Las Positas College Library website (Links to an external site.) and use Academic Search Ultimate to find two different peer-reviewed articles about two different examples of adaptation. You must read and summarize each of these articles thoroughly in your own words.
It is up to you to think of two different subjects to investigate. You could decide to look into how penguins became flightless, or how whales adapted to the sea. You may prefer to research something more recent, like lactase persistence in some human populations, or the relatively recent emergence of carnivorous polar bears from omnivorous brown bears. You can brainstorm and look for ideas using Google but your references must come from Academic Search Ultimate. No other sources will be accepted.
Your summary must use correct vocabulary from the class and explain the selective pressures involved in each example.
You must use APA format to introduce and discuss your articles, and to list them at the end of your essay.
Learning APA format is your responsibility.
