Ephesians Word Study

Select a word from your Ephesians passage that you deem to be of significance to the interpretation of the passage. Base your determination of significance on Duvall & Hays Choose Your Words Carefully section in chapter 9, page 167 and a check for range of meaning in the concordance.  Be sure you understand range of meaning or semantic range and how to identify them. (Described in the Determine What the Word Could Mean section of Chapter 9, pages 170-172.)  A word may have great theological significance but, if it has no range of meaning, it is not a good choice for this assignment.

Using the steps outlined in Assignment 9-2, (steps 1-7) as a guide, do a complete word study of the word you have chosen. For instance, using your concordance, find the Greek word that translates the word you have chosen (step 1), write it out in transliterated form (step 2), make a list of the different ways this word is translated in the NIV (step 3), locate the verses that correspond to each translation (step 4)

In lieu of steps 5-7 create your own questions and answers (like steps 5-7) that will help you to identify the semantic range for your word based on its uses. If you have questions about this part, ask them in the Student Lounge or email your instructor.

If you have access to Verbrugge’s New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, you may complete Step 8, otherwise this step is optional.

And, why do you believe you are suited for the practice of anesthesia?

Assignment 1 Research Report Proposal

The assignment is to propose a topic for your Research Report. As we are located in Toronto, and Toronto urban issues are in the news daily and are the subject matter of numerous studies, it is recommended that students choose a Toronto related topic, but other cities can also be proposed to your TA. The issue chosen should be analysed using one or more of the theoretical and analytical approaches introduced in the text and the lectures.

The research report proposal should set out what topic you propose to study, explain why it is significant, state what questions you hope to answer, and identify a preliminary bibliography of relevant academic literature sources (at least 8) needed to prepare your paper. The Final Report is not intended to include original research from primary sources such as interviews or surveys, but should be based on existing published research and data. Start with the bibliographies and suggestions for further reading at the end of the relevant chapters in the text. Your proposal should be not more than 1,200 words.

Topics and Questions:

1. Issues of transportation and mobility are currently a major topic of debate in the Toronto area because of worsening congestion and demands for improvements to public transit services. These issues can be examined based on recent debates about public transit, mobility, car dependence, congestion, urban form and sustainability. What are the main transport and mobility issues in the Toronto area, how do these affect different populations and areas of Toronto unevenly, and what solutions are proposed to solve them?

2. Issues of housing affordability and homelessness. How have Torontos housing markets changed in recent decades, and what is the significance of those changes? Why is housing in the Toronto area so unaffordable? Why are there so many homeless people in Toronto, and what responses to the homelessness and housing affordability problems have been proposed and attempted in the past?

3. Social Space. How have the socio-spatial patterns of Torontos population changed in recent decades, why are those changes occurring, and what is their significance? In particular, why is Toronto seeing increased socio-spatial polarization? What approaches have been developed to study these changes? How should we understand these changes to Torontos social geography?

4. Urban Environment. Toronto has a number of pressing environmental issues, including flooding, air pollution, toxic waste contamination, protection of greenspaces and natural heritage systems. How are these issues understood, and what is being done about them? What research has been done measuring the significance of these issues? Who is involved in trying to mitigate these issues?

5. Urban Planning. Identify an important planning issue in Toronto, and the policies that have been proposed or implemented in response to it. For example, there are many major redevelopment projects ongoing in the Toronto area, such as the Toronto Waterfront and Portlands, intensification of the downtown core, and redevelopment of public housing projects such as Regent Park and Lawrence Heights, which are interesting topics for analysis. Who is involved in the project, why is it being carried out, what are the arguments for and/or against the project, or for modifications to it?

Surv World History/Civiliz II Section 5CG Fall 2020 CO

The last major wave of imperial expansion in world history developed in earnest after 1875. It came to an end, more or less, with the outbreak of World War I in 1914. The rationale for empire was, as we saw in Unit 6, diverse. Economic motivations for markets, labor, and raw materials, evangelical religion, racism, and an Enlightenment-inspired visions of a civilizing mission were among the principle arguments public officials gave for their imperial projects. There was not one argument, of course, but many. The real world does not exist in black and white. Shades of grey are critical to understanding the past and present. The purpose of this essay is to encourage students to think critically about the complexity of official justifications for imperialism and to explore how these rationales could support or contradict one another.


For this essay, you will draw on the primary source documents linked below, especially the section entitled Motives and Attitudes, to explain the arguments European elites gave for their imperial projects at the end of the nineteenth century. Use a close reading of the online textbook to provide historical context for your argument. Your essay should explore the relationships among various arguments for empire, i.e., the way, for example, racism may have buttressed calls for civilization or how evangelical impulses may have undercut or supported economic arguments. Take at least two of the arguments you think are most important and explore their interaction.

Expectations and Criteria for Success:

You should base your discussion with the information in the Unit 6 course content module as well as the two sources linked above, but outside research is allowed if needed.  Outside research should be supplemental to the two primary sources attached to this essay.  DO NOT use Wikipedia as a source.  As always, be sure to keep track of where you find your information so that you can provide citations in your final essay.  Essays should be typed in 12-point font with a simple, clean font such as Times New Roman. Use 1″ inch margins on all sides and double-space the text. Your essays should each be around 1000 words.

Successful essays should be carefully organized, with strong thesis statements and specific evidentiary support.  In your introduction, briefly describe the context of the documents that you are analyzing. The body of the essay will focus on analyzing/explaining two justifications that can be seen in more than one document/context. Combine evidence from multiple primary sources and context from the class text to make an argument about how Europeans justified imperialism. And note that the best essays will also explore the connections between the two justifications (how did they support or contradict each other?). Conclude by assessing how these justifications shaped 19th-century imperialism. Be sure to revise and edit carefully. Click here to review the General Essay Guidelines included in your syllabus.

The type of court case depends on the state law or federal law that was allegedly violated. The federal court system, with some exceptions, hears cases involving federal matters. State court systems are independent of one another, and each system has its own rules and regulations. Generally, state courts decide cases involving matters occurring within their own state borders. Federal jurisdiction is the power of the court to hear and decide a case before it. In most common law systems, jurisdiction is conceptually divided between jurisdiction over the subject matter of a case and jurisdiction over the person of the litigants. Examples of cases over which federal courts have jurisdiction include federal crimes, federal antitrust law, bankruptcy, patents, copyrights, trademarks, suits against the United States, and areas of admiralty law (pertaining to the sea). State courts: Each state has its own court system, but the general structure is the same in all states. The bottom tier consists of local courts. The next highest tier is trial courts, followed by appellate courts, and then the state supreme court. As with the federal court system, there are also special state courts with jurisdiction in certain kind of cases.

In 2008 the Illinois Appellate Court affirmed a Cook County jury’s $2.7 million verdict for institutional negligence against Loyola Medical Center in a Chicago transplant error case. The Issue in the Longnecker was whether Loyloa University Medical Center was negligent when it transplanted the decedent with a severely hypertrophy replacement heart. The harvested heart was severely diseased and was considered for transplantation only because the harvesting doctors did not examine it. Despite the diseased state of the new heart, the decedent’s heart surgeon went ahead with the new transplant. The decedent died without ever waking up from the surgical procedure. Knowing all that you do from what you have studied this semester what is your expert opinion. Was the harvesting doctors, the surgeon and/or the hospital at fault and why? Do you agree with the courts findings? What type of court case is this an example of?
