Why Should We Care? As college students we are well aware of the privacy issues that we face using public computers or free WIFI services But what about younger kids? As well as what data is collected from us So my paper is going to look at just that... what does privacy look like for paper trails in the digital age? How can we protect ourselves from data collection i.e. school records, medical history, incident reports etc. SOLUTIONS So how would we fix this problem? Where does the solution lie? Should there be training for administration to learn about proper childhood privacy protection laws? How much would that type of training cost?

Transcript: White Paper Presentation Caleb, Jane, Jason, Jacob, and Sabina Blood Donation Hesitancy in the African American Community Abstract We will discuss the background... Types of blood donation How to donate blood, including requirements What sickle cell disease is and how it can be treated Disproportionate hesitancy to donate in the African American community and why their donations are important Why this hesitancy exists, including the stories of Henrietta Lacks and the Tuskegee Experiment ...and potential solutions Early education Establishing trust by leveraging trusted community centers as potential sources of information and donation sites Blood Donations Background Blood donations voluntary procedures that can save lives Two Types of Blood Donations: Whole Blood donations and Apheresis Compoents often removed from blood: platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells, and plasma Eligiblity requirements for blood donations Recommendations prior to blood donation African Americans make up 13% of the U.S. population, but less than 3% of blood donors Race and ethnicity has an effect on blood type Most transfused blood type is Type O, half of the African American population has Type O Sickle Cell Disease - Sickle Cell Disease: inherited red blood cell disorder - This disease is most common in African Americans - 1 in 13 African American people are born with sickle cell trait - 1 in 365 African American people are born with the disease - Cure for sickle cell disease: bone marrow trasnplant or stem cell transplant - The best donor matches have the same race or similar ethnicity as patient -Be the Match: their goal is to grow the registry and increase the number of patients who find matches Sickle Cell Disease Racial Disparity Why is there such a small percentage of Black donors? Tuskegee Experiment 1932 study to record the natural history of syphilis Followed 600 Black men (399 with syphilis, 201 without) over 40 years Researchers told the men they were being treated for “bad blood” By 1943, penicillin was the treatment of choice for syphilis and was becoming widely available, but the study participants were not offered treatment Many of the men died from syphilis complications, and several of their wives and children contracted the disease Henrietta Lacks Black woman visited Johns Hopkins Hospital complaining of vaginal bleeding in 1951 Doctors discovered a large, malignant tumor on her cervix Underwent radium treatments A sample of her cancer cells was retrieved during a biopsy and sent to a tissue lab Cell samples always died quickly, but Lacks’ cells doubled every 20-24 hours These cells have been used to study the effects of toxins, drugs, hormones, and viruses on the growth of cancer cells without experimenting on humans Tuskegee Experiment By 1980, the public revelation of the Tuskegee study in 1972 had reduced life expectancy among Black men over 45 by more than a year The study was responsible for over a third of the life-expectancy gap between older Black and white men in 1980 Disclosure of the study accelerated an erosion of trust in doctors and dampened health-seeking behavior and healthcare utilization for Black men Henrietta Lacks Tissue was removed from Lacks’ tumor without her consent and sent to a lab to be cultured Her children eventually learned that the cells and experiments that were performed with them led to the creation of a massive for-profit industry Lacks’ family lived in poverty and never received any of the financial benefits derived from their mother’s tumor cells No one ever asked her family for consent, even as they used Lacks’ name publicly, gave her medical records to the media, and published her cells’ genome online Issues and Effects Black patients consistently express less trust in their physicians and the medical system than white patients, are more likely to believe medical conspiracy theories, and are much less likely to have common, positive experiences in healthcare settings Possible Solutions Solutions Use of churches and community centers for education on need to donate and safety of process Build community trust and use as potential site for blood drives More Black spokespeople to build trust Evidence Evidence Nearly 80% of African Americans identify religion as important compared to only 50% of the general population 15% of African-Americans who are unaffiliated report attending religious services at least once a week, compared with only 5% of the unaffiliated population as a whole Similar to the push for vaccinations When respondents — whether Black or white — read that a majority of their racial group was eager to be vaccinated, they become significantly more willing to get a vaccine as soon as possible, with an increase of over five percentage points compared to the control Problems in the Industry Spain Case Study There are barriers that need to be solved such as the lack of intimacy in the donation act Solution: Sending thank you letters, allows the donor to feel
Transcript: Research and Case studies Deforestation is increasing because of the need of wood to burn and make buildings and the need for paper to write messeges and information for other people. This can be combated by planting more trees, and this tree planting can be funded by the previously-stated carbon tax.

Problem Carbon Taxes and Reforestation Any questions? The carbon tax Reforestation Earl Nightingale, respected radio personality and writer, stated this as a warning; if we continue to spew out CO2 at this rate, we will become our own worst enemy Background Information Solution One possible solution to this problem is to introduce a carbon tax to decrease the appeal to fossil fuels, and to start a general reforestation project in Illinois The CO2 levels in the atmosphere are rising steadily, and this is affecting the earth by creating more violent and more frequent droughts, the eventual flooding of coastal cities, and the mass extinction of various species throughout the world. This is a concern for everyone, as flooding cities would force people to either move or abandon the cities. This would lead to a governmental failure and lots of animals going extinct, which makes this a very serious issue Human activity is causing excess CO2 in the atmosphere, mostly due to the burning of fossil fuels. These fossil fules produce CO2 and heat when burned. Carbon Tax Our proposal for a carbon tax would be one that increased with three variables, the time since the release of the tax, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, and the amount of carbon the company is producing.

Transcript: The White Paper Some of the preparation included... Field Trips to various Government buildings such as... All of these experiences helped to enrich my knowledge of our government. They gave me insight to many government proceedings, including the very important process of passing legislation. I also had to find a place to intern at. I choose to intern at the Capital University IT Department. The Internship helped me to decide what I wanted to make my White Paper About. The Plan Pros and Cons Some Statistics While all statistics show growth of technology , both personal and in schools, what's the point of it if students can't use it to their educational advantage My legislation will be sent to John Patrick Carney, where I hope it will be viewed and considered. Positives and Negatives The Crime Lab The White Paper is a cumulative assignment, the entire J-Term Government class has been preparing us to make this project. The Supreme Court Cons Students will better understand technology Students will be able to use technology to make their school work more interesting and useful Schools will have to hire a new teacher, which helps with creating jobs Students will be better prepared for college Time will be saved in class when computers are needed. Implications While technology is everywhere in our schools, what's the point of it if students don't know how to use it to its full potential? My proposed legislation aims to change that, and better prepare students for tomorrow. We also had a speaker, Maurice Thomson Make Introductory Level Tech Education Mandatory Costs and Benefits Budget Implementation of such a program could cause some other program to be cut Not all students have home computers to practice their skills Conclusion Technology is unavoidable. The plan is to require 1 credit of tech education in high schools. To make sure students understand how to use technology to make their school work more interesting and in depth. Throughout the class we've done a lot to make sure our understanding of Government is good, so we could make the best legislation possible. Connections The State House The legislation I decided to create involves requiring schools to have an introductory technology education class.
