What do you consider to be the most trustworthy sources of news, politics, and information? On what do you base your criteria? Support your views with two or three reasons and/or examples. (Cite any sources you referenced.) 


Do you believe the discourse has taken on a more positive or negative tone? Why?

Think about today’s relationship between the citizenry and local public agencies (STATE OF ALABAMA). Do you believe the discourse has taken on a more positive or negative tone? Why? Provide examples to support your reasoning.






If you go into the City of Milwaukee, it is a mess with shootings of young children, senseless auto deaths and just things that simply go against my grain. The Mayor has gained the 2020 Democratic Convention for Milwaukee through crazy spending habits for things that won’t benefit the City as a whole and has his head in the sand when issues of lead in drinking water laterals, huge uptick of opioid deaths (15 in the city in one day) and homelessness. He claims he is going to have all of that cleaned up by the time the convention comes to town. My fear is he is going to shift the problems to other surrounding communities. There are several activist groups that are constantly pounding on the Mayor’s door and for the most part the Mayor spends a great time in parody of the local newspaper as well as online articles.


We had a couple police officer involved deaths where one person was cognitively challenged and attacked the police officer that stopped to wake him from sleeping in a public area. Big marches were organized by the dead person’s family, which later came to light that the same family through the dead person out of the house because he was too much of a hassle to deal. Then ended up profiting from his death in wrongful death lawsuits.


So, there was a great deal of negativity going on and some officials lost their elected seats as well as the police officer lost his job although the court cleared him.


There were positives as much as negatives, over the last year we lost 3 police officers and a fire lieutenant due to fatal gunfire from people at the scene. That brought the city together. Since then, Milwaukee has experienced several fatal and non-fatal shooting of young innocent bystander kids. The community has finally grown tired of this and are now cooperating with police in capturing these people. At one time, a shooter could get lost in the city that knows everyone. Those days have gone by.


My question always is, why does there have to be several tragedies happen for people to say enough is enough? I grew up in a different era where the establishment was question but authority or others were still respected. Where did that go?

Research And Pharmacology

 Write a 5–6-page article on a controversial topic related to pharmacology. Explain appropriate use of pharmacology; the relationship between quality patient outcomes, patient safety, and the use of pharmacology; and how the topic affects communities and organizations. Describe inequities regarding access to pharmacological treatments. 




In your professional nursing practice, you will likely encounter both patients and coworkers whose personal or cultural views on pharmacology may be quite different from your own. Understanding the most current research on pharmacological topics will help you make informed choices.


For this assessment, imagine your supervisor asks you to write an article on a controversial topic for the organization’s monthly newsletter in which you review the most recent research on the topic. She stresses you must present a balanced overview and equally address the pros and cons of the topic.




Complete the following as you prepare to write your article:


  1. Choose a topic from the list below:
    • The use of medical marijuana.
    • The use of complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) versus traditional Western medicine.
    • Experimental drug programs and disease management.
    • Mandated vaccinations for children and the implications for parental choice not to vaccinate.
  2. Search the Capella library and the Internet to locate peer-reviewed research articles on your selected topic. The information you use to support your work in this assessment must be as recent as possible.


Note: These are very broad topics. Limit your work to the scope of your practice and be mindful of the page-length requirements.




Once you have identified your topic, organize your article as you wish. Be sure to include the following:


  • Explain the appropriate use of the pharmacology related to the topic. Include elements such as diseases or health concerns associated with the topic and the efficacy and applicability of the pharmacology.
  • Explain the relationship between quality patient outcomes, patient safety, and use of the pharmacology related to the topic. Remember to address both the benefits and limitations of the pharmacology in terms of specific diseases and populations.
  • Explain how the topic affects both the community and the organization in terms of promoting health and wellness.
  • Describe any inequities regarding access to the pharmacology related to the topic. Is access limited to specific groups or populations? Who determines access? On what is it based? Does access influence choice?


Follow APA guidelines to format this assessment. Include a title page and reference page.


Additional Requirements


  • Number of pages: 5–6 (no more than 7).
  • At least 4 current scholarly or professional resources.
  • Times New Roman, 12 point, double-spaced font.
