You will then apply one of the following five modes of adaptions (Merton’s Strain Theory of Deviance) Conformity, Innovation, Ritualism, Retreatism, and Rebellion to each corrected statement. Below are the 5 sentences that need to be corrected and what you have to apply one of the Theory of Deviance to. My teacher told me to look for “Content based change words add adaptions” in the sentences as far as finding the mistakes and correcting them goes (not sure what that means)
The 5 sentences:
1. Challenges the unapproved goals and the approved means to achieve them.
2. Does not accept culturally approved goals; pursues them through culturally unapproved means.
3. Accepts culturally approved goals; adopts approved means of achieving them.
4. Accepts both approved goals and the approved means to achieve them.
5. Abandons society’s goals but continues to disregard means to achieve them.

Discuss and explanation

There is one of my textbooks and then there is my professor’s textbook, so the tasks that I have to do are as my professor put it: “Attached are the chapters from Betrayal that we discussed last night.”. Please recall that the task is simply to discuss the components of my theory–concepts, definitions, interrelationships among concepts– relate to the section on Theory from chapter 1 in your text.” Hopefully, everything is clear and helpful. Please let me know if there is something confusing.

Social Work Question

“Masks don’t work to stop Covid”, “Vaccines cause autism”, “Gun violence relates to mental health”. True? False? We can only confirm/refute these opinions by using research.
Read below ( or this CNN article (Links to an external site.) link) on what the Surgeon General feels is the biggest Covid-19 vaccination threat. (Remember, this is your textbook! This all counts as reading. )
Surgeon General warns misinformation is the greatest threat to Covid-19 vaccination effortsBy Madeline Holcombe, CNN
Updated 1:35 PM ET, Fri June 25, 2021
(CNN)With a dangerous Covid-19 variant on the rise, health experts are urging people who are still hesitant to get their vaccinations. But the US surgeon general warns a big obstacle stands in their way: Misinformation.
“There is so much misinformation out there about the vaccine, coming through so many channels — a lot of it being spread on social media,” Dr. Vivek Murthy told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “It’s inducing a lot of fear among people.”
(Links to an external site.)These are the two key groups now being hit hardest by Covid-19
“Two-thirds of those who are unvaccinated in polls say that they either believe the myths about Covid-19 or think that they might be true,” he added.Experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, have estimated that (Links to an external site.)70 to 85% of people in the US will need to become immune to the virus through vaccination or infection in order to control community spread. But after initial surges, vaccination rates have slowed, and only 53.7% of the population has received at least one dose.
In addition, more than 1 in 10 people who have received one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine have missed their second dose, according to data shared with CNN by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
That statistic is especially concerning to experts because studies have shown that the vaccines are much more effective against the Delta variant after the two-dose series is completed.
And the Delta variant is believed to be more transmissible and cause more severe disease than other strains.
Murthy said he is worried for those who are unvaccinated as the variant spreads.
In Los Angeles County, the impact is already clear. Nearly all of the Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in Los Angeles County are occurring among people who are unvaccinated, county health officials said Thursday.
Out of nearly 437,000 positive coronavirus cases reported in L.A. County since December 2020, 99.6% of those were among individuals who were unvaccinated, health officials said in a press release.
“The virus is still with us,” Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said at a press conference. “Even now, we need to be careful to mask and maintain distance from people outside of our households, especially if they’re not yet vaccinated.”

Intro continued…
This article reinforces that it is important to be able to support your opinions, viewpoints and positions with research and then clearly communicate your findings. This can be accomplished by using literature to support your viewpoint. This will help you to challenge biases you may have as well as prove that your point is not just an opinion. This assignment will help you to learn to PROVE your opinions (or change your mind) by using research and literature.
**This assignment is meant to show you how all other discussions should be constructed. From this assignment forward, you will be expected to have a source to support any health facts or conclusions.
Preparation For this discussion, prepare first by reading the following document, watching the video and reading my post
WRITTEN: How to Support a Thesis Statement HED BROOKS
Actions
We are only going to do a short version of this handout. SHORT VIDEO. This this simple and silly video really does a good job of how to write a topic sentence and how to support it. Its 6 minutes but a good review!Link to Writing a Supporting Paragraph with a Topic Sentence (Links to an external site.)
EXAMPLE: READ my post below!! Yours should resemble it. I am researching the claim that “recreational” or gateway drugs contribute to more drug use. Many think this is true, many think it is false. I am picking a side and using literature to support my argument:
My Post:
Gateway drugs contribute to more powerful drugs but other factors may be involved. Marijuana, a gateway recreational drug, is legal but can serve to sensitize the developing brain to dopamine receptors and cravings (Panlilio et al). Interestingly, research shows that early adolescent drug use contributes to increased later adolescent drug use but, in adulthood, the correlation can adjust. At that point, mental health issues cloud the relationship (Nkansah-Amankra). Research shows that gateway drugs do contribute to later drug use but it is only one factor in the complex relationships in addiction.

Assignment InstructionsSummary: Write a paragraph using the prompts below. It must have a topic sentence, two (2) supporting facts with references and then one closing sentence. There should be 4-6 sentences total. More is not always better.
Steps:
Pick ONE of the following topics to write a sentence about. An opinion on one of these topics MUST be part of your first sentence.
Do gateway drugs contribute to the use of more powerful drugs?
Do vaccines cause autism?
Is Covid really worse than the flu?
Are eggs bad for you?
Does the California “one year” rule not allowing teens to drive with friends until they have their license for one year have any benefit?
Does sugar cause hyperactivity in children?
Do masks really help stop the spread of disease?
D seatbelts really matter?

Write a topic sentence that answers the question. (This is easier than the video since I gave you the topic).
Support it with TWO facts that are supported. (That means look up two articles or sources that support your opinion. If there are not two (author) in your post, something is wrong.)
Feel free to clarify any complexity like I did above (Yes, gateways leads to more drugs early on but later it is not clear)
You MUST have your references in the text in (author) like my post above.
Repeat your conclusion.
Have the two references at the end.

Discussion Topic: Community Resources

, but one thing people can control is the types of services, resources, and support their cities provide older adults. Social support is not only in the form of friendship or conversation but includes lots of other things. The graphic to the left shows you many different types of resources offered by the local, regional, and national communities at no cost or low cost. Spend some time researching your city (or a city of your choosing–feel free to “travel” around the world and explore places near and far!) and identifying the various types of low-cost or no-cost services available to seniors. Please do not list all the things one city senior center does/offers. Branch out and see what other city, community or non-profit organizations offer so that you have an understanding of the social resources available from multiple sources. You’ve are in your discussion groups and can only see your group member’s contributions (after you post).
For your post reply (click the reply button below), identify and describe the city you selected. Then, share 2-3 key facts about the seniors in that community (i.e. demographics of seniors, not the whole community). Next, discuss 3-4 resources for seniors in that community and explain how these are important to the well-being of seniors. Are there any services missing? Write about 10 – 11 sentences paragraphs

-Case study: (Case Study 2: The Structure of the American Opioid Crisis )
On an average day in the United States, 130 Americans die from an opioid overdose. In fact, according to the National Safety Council, Americans are now more likely to die of an opioid overdose than they are to die in a car crash. At present, the most coordinated effort to forestall this tragedy is to blame Americans for their addiction. Unfortunately, given that half of opioid deaths involve prescription painkillers, this is straight out of the opioid manufacturers’ playbook.
Facing a raft of lawsuits and a threat to their profits, pharmaceutical companies are pushing the line that the opioid epidemic stems not from the wholesale prescribing of powerful painkillers – essentially heroin in pill form – but from their misuse by those who become addicted. In court filings, drug companies are smearing the Americans hooked on their products. While some Americans do break the law by buying opioids on the black market, or by switching to heroin, too often their addiction began by following the advice of a doctor, who, in turn, was following the drug manufacturers’ instructions. According to a recent report by a United States federal commission on opioid addiction, “We have an enormous problem that is often not beginning on street corners; it is starting in doctor’s offices and hospitals in every state in our nation.”
Significantly, this is an almost uniquely American crisis driven in good part by particular features of America’s social structure. While Americans represent less than 5% of the world’s population, they consume more than 80% of the global opioid pill production. Over the past 20 years, one federal institution after another has lined up behind drug manufacturers’ false claims of a scourge of untreated pain in the United States. They seem not to have asked why no other country seems to be suffering from such a scourge or consuming so many opioids for its treatment.
Unlike most other countries, the United States health care system is run as an industry, not a service. This gives considerable power to drug manufacturers and health insurance companies to influence policy and practices. And, too often, their bottom line is profits – not health. Opioid pills are far cheaper and easier to provide than are other forms of treatment for pain, like physical therapy or psychiatry. Through congressional lobbying, pharmaceutical companies have even rewritten medical regulations to permit physicians to prescribe as many pills as they want without censure. Indeed, doctors sometimes find themselves hauled before ethics boards for not prescribing enough drugs to their patients.
In fact, the United States health care system also gives a lot of power to patients. People coughing up large amounts of money in insurance premiums and co-pays expect results. They are, after all, more customers than patients. Doctors complain of patients who arrive in their office expecting a pill to resolve their medical conditions and who don’t take responsibility for their own health by eating better or exercising more. Among patients, the idea has also taken hold, pushed by the pharmaceutical industry, that there is a right to be pain free. While the people of other nations pursue strategies to reduce and manage pain, Americans seem to hold the expectation that pain can simply be made to disappear.
