All historians must be careful about sources, but Achaemenid Persia arguably presents some of the greatest source challenges any historian will encounter. Reflect on how our sources for Achaemenid history shape the way we interpret the empire. Begin your essay by assessing the overall nature of the evidence for Achaemenid history—including textual, archaeological, numismatic, and other sources. Why do the sources for Achaemenid Persia present us with such challenges? What is at stake for our broader historical understanding of the empire?
World War I was a very complicated event in European history. Scholars till this day debate over the causes of the war. Write a formal academic paper presenting your reasons and thoughts on the question: What were the causes of World War I and how was this war different than previous ones?
You are the RN at the local clinic; NR is a 41 year-old Caucasian female and single mother of 3 who presents with a “pounding and throbbing” headache, the third of its kind within the past month. She works part-time at Walmart and is taking nursing courses in the evening. She denies alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs. She sleeps about 5 hours each night, admits to poor eating habits-drinking 3-4 cups caffeine, and eating candy “more than she should”. NR describes her pain as being localized to the right temple, increasing in intensity over the past hour rating her pain as a 9 out of 10. She also complains of non-radiating neck pain and states the bright lights in the clinic make her feel worse as she now feels nauseous and dizzy though she has not vomited. Lying in a dark quiet room makes her feel better. Sometimes taking ibuprofen 600mg also helps though her last dose was yesterday. She denies any previous medical history, has never been hospitalized except for childbirth (uncomplicated vaginal deliveries x3), no surgical history, no significant family history.
1.In the second Meditation, (Kleiman and Lewis, p. 33) Descartes responded to the doubts raised previously — his famous remark that “I think, therefore I am.” Of course, we might say. Isn’t that obvious? So why is Descartes’ remark so profound? (Or is it?)
2.In the third Meditation, Descartes developed the first of two arguments for God’s existence, this one called the Cosmological Proof, claiming there is no other way to explain his having the idea of God than that God Himself gave it to him. (See page 42, in Kleiman and Lewis.) Could we human beings have invented the idea of God? Why did Descartes think otherwise?

This assignment aims at helping you develop your skills as a social researcher based on the knowledge you acquired in this subject. It requires that you identify a social problem of interest to you, conduct a brief literature on the issue and justify the need for research on the issue. You are then to propose how you would go about conducting that research, paying attention to ethical, theoretical and methodological considerations, including levels of measurements, sampling and relevant hypotheses. You must justify your methodological selection, which will demonstrate your understanding of strengths and limitations of each.
