42 USC Ch. 55
https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=granuleid%3AUSC-prelim-title42-chapter55&saved=%7CKHRpdGxlOjQyIHNlY3Rpb246NDMzMiBlZGl0aW9uOnByZWxpbSkgT1IgKGdyYW51bGVpZDpVU0MtcHJlbGltLXRpdGxlNDItc2VjdGlvbjQzMzIp%7CdHJlZXNvcnQ%3D%7C%7C0%7Cfalse%7Cprelim&edition=prelim
Chapter 55 of Title 42 of the U.S. Code is the law better known as The Environmental Policy Act. It was introduced in 1969 and passed in 1970. It was signed by President Richard Nixon, whose statement about the law is labeled as “White House” or “the President” rather than by his name.
You can find the entire law here, as it has been amended over the years. The link includes links to original wording in case this is of interest.
Reading the entire law in detail would be arduous; please scan all of the headings and read what you can, especially of the early sections that describe the broad purposes and actions of the law.
Please write briefly about some of the things you learn by reading the law, addressing (at least) its purposes, some things it eliminated, and some things it created. Also mention at least one aspect of environmental quality that it covers and briefly explain how.
Finally, identify one change to the law enacted by an executive order. You can find these by clicking on CTRL-F while looking at the document and then searching on the phrase “executive order” and then looking for the use of that phrase within headings. The date of the order can be used to identify which president made the change. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_presidents_of_the_United_States
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_presidents_of_the_United_States
if you need a reminder of dates in office.
NOTE: This need not exceed 2-3 pages. It would be possible to write much more, but the purpose here is simply to get used to looking at the USC.

Categorizing Boundary Disputes Choose any five of the African boundary disputes.

Categorizing Boundary Disputes
Choose any five of the African boundary disputes.
Identify the conflict, which states were involved.
Summarize the conflict (in your own words do not plagiarize or copy do your own work) .
Then, using a map of Africa and your notes and the internet, identify what type(s) of boundary (antecedent, subsequent, superimposed, relict, cultural, physical) exists between the involved states (remember it can be more than one of these)
Identify what type of dispute it is (locational, definitional, operational, allocational).

Overview: What we eat, along with where we purchase our food, how often we cook,

Overview: What we eat, along with where we purchase our food, how often we cook, and other aspects of our food consumption, are affected by many factors—personal taste/preference, our upbringing, religious views, budget, time, availability, convenience, cooking ability, and more. As a nation, majority of our food consumed is still domestically produced, however, a growing proportion is imported. In recent decades our tastes and expectations have changed. We like a greater diversity of ethnic foods and we have developed an expectation of being able to acquire out of season produce. This reflects our changing global patterns of food consumption. The intent of this assignment is to encourage you to think more fully about what you are eating, where that food is coming from, what drives your choices, and what the implications of your choices may be for our environment.
Part One: Food Diary
For 48 hours/2 days, record everything you eat. Use the Excel sheet (posted on Canvas), create your own, or use an app and transfer the information later.
Pay attention to food labels, packaging, and stickers on fruit and veg—record the source in your diary.
Once complete, categorise your food based on seven categories:
Fruit
Vegetables
Meat
Non-meat proteins (tofu, legumes, nuts…)
Dairy & Eggs
Grains (breads, pasta, rice…)
Other
In your report you will include two data visualizations—either a pie chart or a bar chart, or similar. One will be based on food category, the other on food origin. See links on Canvas for how to do this in Excel.
You will also submit your Diary. If you tracked things electronically, copy the Excel into your Word document at the end of the document. If you printed off the Excel and did it by hand, either scan or take a photograph and insert this at the end. This must be legible!
Part Two: Food Origins
“Origins” can refer to:
where the food (i.e. apple, banana) was grown and shipped from;
the culture associated with the cuisine (i.e. an Indian curry dish, Japanese sushi);
where the food was developed/domesticated originally.
Identify the origin of each food entry in your diary. Record this in a separate column in your diary.
Create a map highlighting the main countries of origin of your food. This can be hand drawn, traced, or you may use online mapping tools. See links on Canvas.
Create a data visualization—pie chart, bar chart, or similar of your food origin by country or continent.

Part Three: Your Food’s Footprint
Using the BBC’s “Climate change food calculator,” calculate the ecological footprint for 10 individual food items on your diary. Aim for a diversity, such as some fruits, vegetables, and grains.
Access the calculator: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-46459714 Links to an external site..
Create a table with one row for each item. Report in individual columns:
Greenhouse gas emissions (in KGs)
Equivalent miles/KM
Litres of water used
Part Four: Compiling your report
Your report will include written responses to questions, your data visualizations (tables, pie charts, bar charts, etc)., your map, and your diary.
Write a 750 word/three-page double-spaced report responding to these questions:
Reflect on your diary:
Did these two days reflect your typical eating habits?
Were you surprised by your choices—too much/too little, more processed/less processed then expected, more global/local than you expected…. ?
What did you learn about your habits?
How does your own diary/choices compare to the recommendations of Canada’s Food Guide? https://food-guide.canada.ca/en/ Links to an external site.
Where does your food come from? Pick a few examples and discuss the origins of these.
How global is your diet? Do you eat primarily domestic or imported?
Discuss your Food Footprint results. Were you surprised at the greenhouse gas emissions or comparable miles/kilometers of your food choices? Will this impact your decisions around food?
