Identify a country whose electricity production infrastructure relies heavily on nuclear power

Assignment 1: Discussion—The Promises and Perils of Nuclear Power

The term nuclear power refers to the production of electrical energy via controlled nuclear reactions. These reactions generate heat that, in turn, creates steam that runs the generators to produce electricity. Approximately 1/8th of the electricity produced in the world is derived from nuclear power. In this assignment, you will analyze the use of nuclear power as an energy resource.

Respond to the following:

  • Discuss the scientific and technical concepts related to the use of nuclear power as an energy resource. Address the following in your response:
    • How is energy released in a nuclear reaction?
    • How are nuclear reactions controlled?
    • What elements are involved in nuclear power production?
    • What nuclear forces are involved?
  • Explain the advantages and disadvantages of nuclear energy, detailing issues related to production, delivery, cost, radiation, air quality, and waste.
  • Identify a country whose electricity production infrastructure relies heavily on nuclear power. Compare and contrast the use of nuclear power in the United States with the use of nuclear power in this country. Provide examples of the use of nuclear power in your community or state.
  • Consider the three major nuclear accidents in the history of the industry: 3-Mile Island (USA), Chernobyl (Ukraine), and Fukushima Dai-Ichi (Japan). What lessons have been learned from these nuclear accidents that can be or have been used to make nuclear power safer?

Write your initial response in 2–3 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Is affirmative action an appropriate and effective policy to address past discrimination

Essay 2. Analyze the political and legal strategies used against segregation. Include a discussion of conditions under segregation in the early twentieth century and the ruling Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) as well as the Supreme Court decisions and reasoning that led to Brown v. Board of Education (1954). How were tactics such as grandfather clauses, white primaries, literacy tests, poll taxes, and racial gerrymandering used to deny voting rights to minority groups, despite the Fourteenth Amendment? What measures abolished these types of laws? 

Each essay should be at least 500 words in length (2 pages, double-spaced), using 12-point font, and in proper APA format.
