APU SCIN360 week 5 forum




Question;Performance Enhancing DrugsForum Instructions: For this assignment you must reply to this post and provide answers to the questions below, prior to 11:55 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday.Continue to follow your classmates' posts for the remainder of the week and post at least 2 follow-up messages to your classmates' posts prior to 11:55 PM Eastern Time Sunday. Your follow-up posts can add additional insight to your classmates? opinions and can challenge their opinions. Be sure to read the follow-up posts to your own posts and reply to any questions or requests for clarification.You should conduct research on the topic of discussion and use this research to support your answers. You can use Internet articles, journals, text books, etc. In fact, I strongly recommend that you utilize the APUS Online Library for your research as they offer a plethora of reliable and pertinent research sources. You may access the Online Library by clicking on the ?Library? link on the menu bar to the left inside the electronic classroom. However, NEVER use Wikipedia for your research as anyone can alter the information on this site making it a poor source of accurate information. Be sure to list your references at the end of your post, include in-text citations where applicable, and be sure that both are in APA format.This week?s reading mentions the importance of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and the effects of hypersecretion of this hormone. Athletes sometimes abuse these and other drugs because of their obvious performance benefits. HGH use will, when combined with resistance training, enhance muscle and strength development. In addition, EPO (erythropoietin) use increases red blood cell levels and improves oxygen delivery to the tissues. It is apparent that drug use/abuse to enhance performance is big business, and widely occurs in professional, top level amateur, and even high school competition. Do you think the use of such drugs taints the ?wide world of sports?? What ideas do you have to control this, or do you think the solution is to simply legalize all performance-enhancing drugs for athletes (that way they can use the drugs under a physicians supervision, which might increase the safety margin)?Don?t forget to back up your arguments with properly cited references.___________________________________________________________Grading/Evaluation of this Forum: Postings will be evaluated on their quality and the degree to which the postings promote discussion with classmates. Participation on all Forums is required. Points are allocated as follows based on the original posting and replies (Total of 100 points).A. Original Posting ? Content and Analysis (55 points possible). Due by Wednesday of the assigned week. Your Forum entry should be pertinent to the subject matter and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the topics discussed with an appropriate introduction, supporting paragraphs, and conclusions. Forum entries should contain 300-500 words, excluding the references. Don?t forget that your posts should be listed in your own words. Please refer to the ?Plagiarism? policy located inside the APUS classroom under the ?Policy? link if you have any questions.B. Original Posting - References cited and properly listed in APA format ? (10 points possible). Whenever you write a paper based on the research of someone else?s work, you must give credit to the original author. If you do not cite and document your sources carefully, you run the risk of plagiarism. In addition, when you document papers correctly, you provide others with a way to find the sources you have used. I recommend you visit the following web site (The Owl at Purdue) to learn how to properly cite your sources in the APA format: Spelling/Grammar/Punctuation - (15 points possible).D. Response to classmates? posts ? (20 points possible). Due by Sundayof the assigned week. You should respond to a MINIMUM of two of your classmates' original posts such that you propagate further discussion on the topic assigned and each reply post should be no less than 100 words.Examples include discussing a point that you like/agree with and/or a point that you dislike/disagree with. You also may ask your classmates additional questions or request further clarification. Again, please be sure to be respectful and professional when responding to your fellow classmates? posts. Lastly, please note that this portion of the Forum cannot be made up, so make sure you post your responses when due. If you are away from the course for any reason, when you return, you may submit your original post and receive up to the 80 points allowable (for your original post, spelling/grammar/punctuation, and properly listed citations), however, you will receive no credit for responding to another student's post because it is after the fact and will be of little value to your classmate.NOTE: Please note that the grading for this week's Forum assignment is different than last week's. ____________________________________________________________Submission Instructions: To post your original entry:Click the "Performance Enhancing Drugs" forum title and then "Start a New Conversation".Type your name as the "Title" and then type your entry into the space provided (the "Message" box).When you are done, perform a spelling/grammar check and then scroll down and hit the "Post Message" button.
