What is a criminological issue that is affecting the state of Ohio right now? For example, gang violence, juvenile delinquency, drugs, law officer misconduct.
Search for anecdotal information about your paper topic. In this case, you are introducing the topic (criminological issue) of your paper by discussing timely news stories about it. The news stories do not have to cover the topic comprehensively. They can serve as examples of the themes that you will address in your paper.
Search the newspaper to find articles about the issue affecting Ohio. As a last resort, use news stories drawn from alternative weekly periodicals. You are also welcome to consult magazine and social media content, provided that it is news-related.
Also look for news stories in your local African American newspaper. You can identify this publication by searching the National Newspaper Publishers Association website:
NNPA | Black Press of America. Click on the About the NNPA tab, then look under Current Members in the drop-down menu. You are welcome to find TV and radio stories posted by members of the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters:
NABOB l National Association of Black Broadcasters You can also review the information found in the member media outlets of the National Association of Hispanic Publications: https://nahp.org
Summarize each article in one paragraph. Provide a citation for each one including the author’s name, the title of the article, the name of the publication or media agency, the page number, if applicable, and the date of publication.

It’s going to be marijuana.”

In February 2020, the Pennsylvania Senate Law & Justice Committee held the first public hearing on the legalization of adult-use cannabis in the commonwealth chaired by Senator Mike Regan (R-Cumberland/York). Committee members heard from lawmakers, law enforcement officials, and medical marijuana industry representatives in a hearing intended “to help lawmakers get a better understanding of the marijuana trade in Pennsylvania and how laws surrounding it are being enforced.”
Committee Panel members were provided an opportunity to comment and question the panelists. At approximately the 1:23:15 mark in the video, Senator Brewster states,
“In reading some of your terminology, I just find it interesting that you don’t like the word marijuana and when I see that I think, I don’t know how it is in other states but marijuana is going to be the word in Pennsylvania for a long time coming. Changing the word doesn’t change the concerns. [Cannabis] may sound like technically speaking but we can call it grass, we can call it weed, whatever you want to call it. It’s going to be marijuana.”
1.) After viewing Senator Brewster’s comment, publish a brief written response (no longer than 250 words) in a word document to his comment that the word marijuana is just the word in Pennsylvania and should not be changed.
2.) Go to the Pennsylvania Legislative web page,
Identify what counties Senator Brewster represents.
Search for Pennsylvania House Bill No. 2050 Session of 2021. As part of the bill’s short title, the first clause states it is “An Act providing for the regulation __________________________;”
Fill in the blank: The bill provides regulation for what subject?

Select a graduate program in political science that you would like to attend in order to obtain a graduate degree (ma, ph.d. etc.) in political science and defend your choice.

Instructions: Take a look at graduate programs in Political Science at universities outside of Connecticut and do the following: Identify political scientists who work in each of the subfields of political science listed in your Roskin course text and course notes for Week 1 that we discussed in class (eight fields, in total including political methodology). You should name only one faculty member per subfield, per university. So, for example, if you name a scholar for subfield A in university X, the next scholar in subfield B should be identified in university Y, and so forth. Also, list one published work (peer reviewed journal article or book) authored by each of the scholars you identify. Usually, you can find this information on their CV or other information on their department website. Sometimes, if you email professors and express interest in their work, they will actually reply right back; especially if they are political scientists. (One published peer-reviewed work/book or article per author/subfield). After you have addressed the above: Next, in two paragraphs, do the following: What does the information on the scholars and departments you identify tell you about the discipline of Political Science? Select a graduate program in Political Science that you would like to attend in order to obtain a graduate degree (MA, Ph.D. etc.) in Political Science and defend your choice. For example, why is this particular graduate program at the University you select your choice for graduate school, and not the others? Use your imagination for this portion if you don’t have any immediate plans for graduate school. Note the following as you write your answers: 1. Your work should not be more than 3 pages long, including any references*** 2. You cannot use universities within Connecticut 3. The departments from which you select Political Science professors should actually have graduate programs in Political Science (MA, MSc, or Ph.D., etc.) 4. You cannot use two professors who work in the same Political Science department at the same university. 5. Do not hesitate to ask for additional clarifications. 6. Use the American Political Science Association style format or the author-date format of the Chicago Manual of Style to reference your work. The style format can be accessed through the website of the American Political Science Association. Follow the link and scroll down to find it: http://www.apsanet.org/PUBLICATIONS/Journals , or simply Google “APSA style guide.” Find the Author-date format of the Chicago Manual of Style here: https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-2.html
