Consciousness and Everyday Occurrences (Worth 30 points)
The purpose of this discussion is to explore the impact of everyday occurrences. This discussion also applies APA style for in-text and reference page citations.
Learning Objectives 3a, 5a, and 5b
*Please note:* This discussion forum is “post first.” In other words, you will not see the posts of your classmates until after you post. When you post, your classmates’ posts will be revealed so you can read them and compose your reply.
Step 1: Please watch the following Ted Talk that examines the cumulative statistical frequency of everyday occurrences: Transforming Statistics into Art.
Step 2: Identify an occurrence of your choosing. The occurrence you identify should be compelling to you. It can be one discussed in the Ted Talk, or you can select one of your own. Please avoid selecting an occurrence that is potentially offensive to others; instead, choose an occurrence that either concerns you or peaks your curiosity. Examples of occurrences may be the prevalence of marijuana use among high school students in the U.S., or the comparison of the prevalence of sleep deprivation among college students in Japan and the United States.
Step 3: Conduct web research to gather at least *two* credible sources that identify the statistics and impact on the community associated with the occurrence you selected. The statistics can report prevalence in a particular U.S. state, the U.S., or any other country or region. The impact of the occurrence should be relevant to the people and/or region you identified. Use APA style in-text citations in your post. At the end of your post, compose APA style citations for your sources.
