Transcript: Annemarie and Paige Plain Folks Definition and Paraphrase Definition/ Who are Plain Folks? Definition: device used primarily by politicians to win our confidence by appearing to be common people like us. Paraphrase: a tactic that politicians use to gain voters' trust by stating that they are a regular person in order to gain their vote. Synonym(s): Working class, regular person, Average Joe, etc. If a politician is using propaganda by preforming Plain Folks, then they are essentially convincing voters that they are just like them. How is it Used? How is Plain Folks Used (Positively or Negatively?) Plain Folks is used positively. It is used to make a politician seem like they are a common person and should be trusted, versus someone that is in the upper class and not acquainted in the life of the average American that would be voting for them. Questions to Ask and Everyday Examples Questions to Ask “Does this certain politician often help a particular group?” “Is this simply a demonstration to gather my support?” “Does this seem like an accurate portrayal of this candidate’s personality?” "Does this candidate participate in this activity regularly?" Purpose Purpose of Plain Folks The purpose of the propaganda tool "Plain Folks" is to convince voters that the candidate that they are voting for is just like them, this positively affects the candidate. This tool is used to convince voters to vote for this particular candidate because of their similarities. Often, voters are "fed up" with their elected candidates, however, this tactic always seems to be a solution-- it is often not. Many other propaganda tactics tend to focus on making the opposition bad or make themselves seem great, however Plain Folks focuses on humbling the candidate to make them seem more regular.

Plain Competition Presentation

Transcript: Conclusion Our Hypothesis The plant that differs less in root fraction from the neighbor will have a better competitive response than plants that differ more in root fraction from the neighboring plant A. gerardii (root fraction=0.37) > B. kalmii (root fraction=0.29) > A. scoparius (root fraction=0.18) Methods Questions? Plants grown without fertilizer on normal watering schedule for 4 weeks Cells thinned so only 1 target plant remained Allowed to grow 1 week more Bloor, J.M.G., P.W. Leadley, and L. Barthes. 2008.

Biomass competition p=0.192 Species of target p=0.254 Interaction species and competition p=0.54 Results Regression Analysis of Target Performance with Competition Biomass Biomass of E. villosus did not have a significant effect on target species Sources of error -Absence of growth -Other factors contributing to growth and competition References Difference in Root Fraction Does not Affect Response Competition Chloe Griffen, Cornelia Osborne, and Elena Seeley Introduction Rationale Does root fraction predetermine success of a plant as a competitor? Previous experiments Violle et al. (2009): plants with longer roots more likely to consume more water in upper layers of soil An experiment by Craine et al. (2003) showed a strong relationship between root biomass and depletion of nutrients. Bloor et al. (2008) found that biomass allocation was significantly affected by root competition.

Geography of Malawi CCST 9004 Appropriate Technology for the Developing World Indicator 3: Literacy Rate of 15 – 24 year-olds According to the World Bank, microfinance is defined as: Microfinance is the provision of financial services to the entrepreneurial poor.This definition has two important features:it emphasizes a range of financial services—not just credit— and it emphasizes the entrepreneurial poor. Goal 2: Achieve Universal Primary Education Appropriate Technology: SIRDAMAIZE 113 Population: 16,777,547 (estimated in July 2013) Population growth rate: 2.758% (2012 est.)

Malawi – Climate/Agriculture Trading partners: South Africa, Zambia, China, US Challenges: · shortage of qualified primary school teachers; · inadequate physical infrastructure; · poor retention of girls mainly from standard five to eight; · high disease burden due to HIV and AIDS consequently leading to absenteeism especially among girls who take care of the sick; and · poor participation of school committees and their communities in school management. · Poverty levels are high in rural areas. 1 Doctor per 50,000 people Hinders the ability to deliver medical services to people in need Reason: Emigration Lack of access to education Aggravated by AIDS > 4 nurses are lost each month This also affects other sectors: Government Business Farmers Human Resources HIV/AIDS - Contemporary GDP: US $14.58 billion (2012 est.) (World ranking: 142) Labor force: agriculture: 90%; industry and services: 10% (2003 est.) Countries main income Agriculture Main crops: maize, tobacco, tea, sugar cane, groundnuts, cotton, wheat, coffee, and rice Industry: tobacco, tea, sugar, sawmill products, cement, consumer goods Challenges: limited capacity in terms of human and material resources to facilitate adult literacy and continuing education; early marriages perpetuated by socioeconomic factors; socio–cultural factors that make people believe that men should be leaders while women are followers; and, poor learning environment which affects girls in primary and secondary schools e.g. sanitary facilities, long distances to education facilities, extra burden from domestic chores especially for adolescent girls resulting into high dropout rate. 1964: Independent from Britain Indicator 1: Maternal Mortality Ratio Malawi Demographics Problems - Outline Indicator 4: Share of Women in Wage Employment in the Non- Agriculture Sector measure of employment opportunities ( i.e equal proportions of men and women in formal employment) Yet, more women participate in the agriculture sector than in the formal wage employment especially in jobs that require professional qualifications. Due to: literacy levels, gender disparity and cultural values.
