You are a research analyst for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The department has received credible intelligence from the NSA, FBI, and Department of Defense that Al Qaeda is planning a biological attack using smallpox against Los Angeles, CA. Although the dispersal method is unknown, it is believed the most likely method will be airborne, through a populated shopping mall's ventilation system. The lax security at these locations, coupled with a wide social and economic population sampling, will make identifying victims and stopping the spread of the disease difficult. The intelligence indicates that the attack is scheduled to occur within 7-10 days.Your department has been tasked with reviewing historical incidents of smallpox, including academic assessments of its use as a biological agent for terrorism. Use the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's smallpox Web site as a guide to available resources and current planning (CDC Smallpox Information). With these tools, develop a communication plan that addresses the following:Assignment GuidelinesRevise and amend your Week 4 Key Assignment by adding what you learned in the Discussion Board posts following the task, as well as taking into consideration your instructor's comments.Address the following with regard to the above information, and add your responses to your Key Assignment final draft:Provide an overview of the threat (disease characteristics).How can mass hysteria be prevented within the population?What should the federal government share with the state, and can this information be controlled?What should the federal government share with the city, and how can this information be controlled?What should the federal government share with the nation?When should information be disseminated to each recipient (state, city, and nation)?What should be the characteristics of this information''s release to the public (consider medium, frequency, and timeliness)?Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.Professor comment regarding week 4 assignment and how to revise it:Hi Edmond :Total points earned (rounded): 139 out of 150 (93%).Task Requirements points earned: 34.2 out of 38 (90%).Demonstration and application of knowledge points earned: 74.7 out of 83 (90%).Academic writing and format points earned: 30 out of 30 (100%).• Provide a brief summary of the event.• What psychological impacts will most likely be present? at the local level?

The paper reads well and flows logically..Opportunities for improvement: There is however, a significant area for improvement. This was to be a comprehensive white paper--but your paper reads more like an opinion piece. Though your information is solid, it is not substantiated or supported by references or citations. In fact, you do not have one citaton in the entire paper. .Additional Comments: Excellent work!.1

Maintaining Information Sharing Environment (ISE) between federal, state (fusion centers) & local governments (also private sector) is critical in preventing a terrorist attack. Coordination at different levels helps in gathering & analyzing information at each step and also in issuing alerts, warnings, and notifications.The state should be alerted that a biological terrorist attack has been planned in the next 7-10 days.

The following are the sample mean, sample variances and sample sizes for two groups of drivers, Single Drivers and Married Drivers. Single Drivers: mean1= 130.08 S12 = 294.62 n1 = 35 Married Drivers: mean2= 116.73 S22 = 237.70 n2 = 35 Using an ? = 0.01, can we conclude that single drivers do more driving for pleasure trips than married drivers?

I just need someone to check over my Final Exam in English Comp 1, and make sure the answers I have are correct. Below I will give the final exam assignment and then below that I will list my answers to be checked. I basically just need my answers checked and then any told of any corrections that need to be made. My final exam assignment is below:Instructions: In a Word or Rich Text document, complete the following items. You may use your handouts, notes, book, etc. You may even communicate with each other. Save the document and upload it in the assignment link for Final Exam. Be sure you include your name, etc., in the document as directed in MLA format. 1. List the items below as if it this were a works cited sheet. (25 pts.) Cite “Ozymandias” by Percy Bysshe Shelley your Student’s Book o College English text. Make sure you use the most recent MLA guidelines. Cite “The Life You Save May be Your Own” by Flannery O’Connor from this web link: http://faculty.smu.edu/nschwart/2312/lifeyousave.htm . Make sure you use the most recent MLA guidelines. Locate a print copy (as in from a library or bookstore) of Souls of Black Folk by W. E. B. Du Bois and cite it. Note: Likely you will secure a reprinted copy. This work was first published in 1903. Make sure you use the most recent MLA guidelines. Look up actual grace in The Catholic Encyclopedia (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/) Make sure you use the most recent MLA guidelines. Using AVL, locate Hal Blythe’s 1989 article titled “Faulkner’s ‘A Rose for Emily” and cite it. Make sure you use the most recent MLA guidelines. 2. Write a thesis statement for a descriptive essay. Be sure to include a dominant impression. Avoid using a linking verb. (5pts) Rewrite the following paragraph and proof for the items indicated. James Silverman present his charagter Sidney, the night watchman, as comically incompetent. For example, when walking the perimeter of the cemetery he allowed the grave robbers to slip through the fenceAs Sidney walks along with his “flashlight trembling in his hand, he closes his eyes at each sound and mutters “no ghost, no ghost, no ghost” p. 26. The irony, of course, is that there are no ghosts, instead, it are the grave robbers that he is hired to guard against. You see this is not the only incident of ironic bumbling that Silverman used to show Sidney’s incompetence. Sidney actually assists the grave robbers at one point when they arriv posing as UPS workers. I think one of the clearest example is when the attractive, female graverobber drives up in the UPS truck, “Sidney, fumbling for words, holding his ponderous stomach in, and trying to straighten his generally ruffled uniform[…] loads the artifacts without question [while] smiling at her”. (77) Again, Silvermen demonstrates with comic irony Sidneys ineptitude as he surrenders his attention and the valuable artifacts to a pretty face. You see similar actions continue throughout the novel, making Sidney an endearing, yet comically incompitent character. 3. Proof for formal, standard English. (5 pts.) 4. Proof for MLA. (5 pts.) 5. Proof for grammatical errors. (5 pts.) 6. Proof for mechanics, such as punctuation, etc. (5 pts.) *BELOW ARE MY ANSWERS: Works CitedDu Bois, William Edward Burghardt.

Thesis Statement The rustic kitchen is divided up into three sections: the cooking area, the dining area, and the washing area; which are sure to engulf and intrigue the senses. Rewriting the ParagraphJames Silverman presents his character Sidney, the night watchman, as comically incompetent. For example, while walking the perimeter of the cemetery, he allows the grave robbers to slip through the fence. As Sidney walks along with his “flashlight trembling in his hand, he closes his eyes at each sound and mutters, ‘No ghost, no ghost, no ghost’” (26). The irony, of course, is that there are no ghosts; instead, it is the grave robbers that he is hired to guard against. This is not the only incident of ironic bumbling that Silverman uses to show Sidney's incompetence. Sidney actually assists the grave robbers at one point when they arrive posing as UPS workers. One of the clearest examples is when the attractive female grave robber drives up in the UPS truck. Sidney, fumbling for words, holding his ponderous stomach in, and trying to straighten his generally ruffled uniform […], loads the artifacts without question [while] smiling at her (77). Again, Silverman demonstrates comic irony with Sidney's ineptitude as he surrenders his attention and the valuable artifacts to a pretty face. Similar actions continue throughout the novel, making Sidney an endearing, yet comically incompetent character. Like Ive stated, I only basically need my answers checked and proof read for any corrections. Thanks!
