Feral cats are highly unlikely to be treated for any of these diseases or parasites, and as a result, can spread diseases like rabies and, more commonly, worms, fleas, and other parasites, to other animals and potentially to humans. Additionally, free roaming cats do a significant amount of damage to wildlife populations.

8 Assignment 2 Name ENG 201 Dr. Maryrose Kasraie August 26, 2022 Proposal Outline: Introduction Hook: There is a significant risk of cancer among people living in Mississippi, but cancer treatment is not currently offered in the Mississippi region. Thesis: One problem in the community is breast cancer awareness; therefore, Town officials of Bassfield and United States Department of Health and Human Services should bring awarenss. The main risk of this proposal is breast cancer has taken too many victims in my life., but the solution will be effective because breast cancer risks, scheduled mammogram, and practice breast self-awareness. Problem: breast cancer awareness Main Cause(s): Mississippi has the highest cancer mortality and incidence rates in the United States, which are steadily increasing (Mohan et al., 2019). Andersen et al. (2019), more than 3,371 cancer deaths and more than 5,345 new cancer cases could occur annually in Mississippi by 2025 (Mohan et al., 2019). People between the ages of 10 and 50 are at the highest cancer risk in the United States. Evidence: Distance to health centers offering cancer care significantly impacts cancer-related mortality and morbidity in Mississippi. By establishing the Mississippi Cancer Screening and Community Center, we hope to identify cancer cases before they progress and combine diagnosis with local options or treatments. Providing an accessible treatment center, Cancer Screening Center, and Community Center will improve health and reduce mortality in Mississippi. Annotation: Andersen et al. (2019), more than 3,371 cancer deaths and more than 5,345 new cancer cases could occur annually in Mississippi by 2025 (Mohan et al., 2019). People between the ages of 10 and 50 are at the highest cancer risk in the United States. Effects of Problem: Cancer in the 21st century has become a serious common disease among people. Cancer, if not detected and treated at early stage, results in death. Evidence: Cancer is easily treatable if detected early (Andersen et al., 2019). The Cancer Screening and Community Center were designed to reduce cancer mortality and morbidity by offering comprehensive cancer care in Mississippi. In addition, they are building the local capacity of health care providers to treat and detect cancer among a diverse patient population. Annotation: The cancer screening and community center will be two-tiered and integrate cancer care into Mississippi’s usual medical care. Nurses from various medical facilities in the state of Mississippi will be trained to use acetic acid to perform visual examinations for the presence of several cancer cases. Suspected cases will then be referred to the Cancer Screening and Community Center, and problems will be evaluated with biopsy, pap smear, and colposcopy. Confirmed cancer cases will be treated with various advanced techniques, including diathermy and cryotherapy. Solution: bring awarenss How Solution Would Work: There will be ten physicians and 20 nurses, and other support staff throughout Mississippi to develop the program. One nurse coordinator in each district will use targeted outreach through local television and radio advertisements to inform people about cancer screening and the community center. Evidence: The project will partner with labor unions, NGOs, and local churches to offer cancer screening services. Once the project is initiated, advocacy members will continue efforts in local communities to raise awareness of the importance of early cancer screening. Annotation: Various people can come together and mobilize resources and funds to help establish a facility that can help improve the well-being of human beings. Costs and Resources: All the resources used for this project will be mobilized from society. Government and nongovernmental organizations are encouraged to come forward and help in contributing various resources and finance to establish the project. Evidence: The project will partner with labor unions, NGOs, and local churches to offer cancer screening services. Annotation: Different stakeholders can come together and mobilize resources and funds to establish a project that will be sustainable. Engaging community members are various stakeholders ensures that everybody is engaged in the project and owns it. Risk Opposing Viewpoint: An alternative solution would be to facilitate the already available hospitals within Mississippi to introduce cancer wards. Evidence: Various hospitals have various rooms that are not entirely used. These rooms can be used as cancer treatment centers. However, doing this may create conge stations in multiple hospitals. Annotation: The alternative solution has both advantages and disadvantages. It is not essential to congest hospitals since this will reduce the time used for treating a patient. There should be available hospitals in a region to meet the demands and the population in that particular region. Your Response to Opposing Viewpoint: Many government hospitals or private hospitals are already filled without free space. Evidence: The hospitals may be forced to use more funding to finance the cancer treatment facilities. Funding may not be easy for private hospitals. On the other hand, private hospitals may not be ready to take part in the project. Annotation: Specialization is crucial when it comes to healthcare delivery. Having specialized hospitals that deal with certain diseases increases the best service delivery. Benefits Supporting Point 1: breast cancer risks Evidence: The project estimates that 100 people will be screened daily throughout Mississippi. The project expects people between the ages of 10 and 50 to visit the Mississippi Cancer Screening and Treatment Center for follow-up and treatment. Once the project starts, it can mobilize local resources for monitoring, control, and training. Annotation: Screening many patients can help in the early detection of various cancer in different people. This will help in reducing the deaths linked to cancer. Supporting Point 2: scheduled mammogram Evidence: The project estimates that 100 people will be screened; there are few studies of cancer cases, especially among people in Mississippi. As part of the screening and treatment program, the project intends to investigate epidemiologic and morbidity factors associated with cancer in Mississippi. ed daily throughout Mississippi. The project expects people between the ages of 10 and 50 to visit the Mississippi Cancer Screening and Treatment Center for follow-up and treatment. Once the project starts, it can mobilize local resources for monitoring, control, and training. Annotation: Rigorous cancer screening can help reduce cancer rates among various people. Supporting Point 3: practice breast self-awareness Evidence: The project wants to measure: The number of cancer cases in the last stages. The number of patients cured of cancer. The number of detected cancer cases. The number of patients screened for cancer. Annotation: The cancer screening center and community center in Mississippi will also act as a cancer research place with various data regarding cancer. This will help improve the knowledge of cancer. Conclusion Restate Thesis: Establishing a Mississippi Cancer Screening and Community Center is critical to the overall health of people in this region. The project can make all the difference if it gets the necessary resources and equipment. Call to Action: It is the responsibility of every person to ensure they are cancer free by going for cancer screening which will enable easy treatment. Introduction: This proposal is intended to facilitate the establishment of a cancer screening and community center in Mississippi. There is a significant risk of cancer among people living in Mississippi, but cancer treatment is not currently offered in the Mississippi region. Many Mississippians have to travel to other states to receive cancer treatment or care. The project also aims to cooperate with stakeholders from the public and non-governmental sectors. The Cancer Screening and Community Center will screen for cancer among a diverse population and offer affordable treatment for confirmed cases. The ultimate goal of the Cancer Screening and Community Center is to reduce cancer-related mortality and morbidity among people living in Mississippi. Various stakeholders are eager to start the project but lack the necessary medical facilities. So, several stakeholders are raising funds to purchase a colposcope, autoclave forceps, diathermy machine, cryotherapy kit, tenaculum, and mirrors. These materials are essential to creating the Cancer Screening Center and Community Center in Mississippi. One problem in the community is breast cancer awareness; therefore, town officials of Bassfield and the United States Department of Health and Human Services should bring awareness. The main counterargument to this proposal is that breast cancer has taken too many victims in my life., but the proposed solution will be more effective because of breast cancer risks, scheduled mammograms, and practiced breast self-awareness. Conclusion: Establishing a Mississippi Cancer Screening and Community Center is critical to the overall health of people in this region. The project can make all the difference if it gets the necessary resources and equipment. Appealing to Your Audience: 1) Which audience appeals (logic, credibility, or emotion) have you used the most? Explain why those appeals would help your specific audience accept one of your supporting points. Which characteristic or value of your audience is reflected in that supporting point? My proposal uses logic and emotion. Pathos is the art of persuasion by emotional appeal to the audience. As the speaker, you aim to emotionally connect with and influence the audience by making them experience the same feelings you do about a subject. Using pathos will increase your chances of convincing the audience to comply with your requests because emotions are powerful motivators. However, 100 people will be checked; nevertheless, there are few studies of cancer cases, particularly among Mississippians. 2) Which audience appeals (logic, credibility, or emotion) do your sources use the most? Choose one piece of evidence and explain how the use of audience appeals makes it effective. Which characteristic or value does your audience hold that would make that evidence compelling to them? My sources are more of an ethical appeal, if I had to guess. The goal of ethos is to persuade your audience that you are a person of integrity and authority, and that they may consequently believe what you say. Your talk must have a clear ethos from the first if you want the audience to listen to what you have to say. If you come across as trustworthy, the audience is more inclined to respect you and believe what you’re saying to be real. This assessment is based on criteria like ethics and values, truthfulness, morality, compassion, generosity, and sharing all characteristics that municipal authorities ought to possess. Reflecting on Feedback: 1) Describe the feedback you received from your instructor on Assignment 1. The instructor gave me a lot of constructive criticism. I feel like I still have a lot of work to do before I can finish this task. Below are some examples of the comments I got: My community’s issue wasn’t conveyed properly, and it has to be stated in a single, direct statement. I must decide on one neighborhood-based audience. I need to be more specific about the characteristics of the local audience. I need to concentrate on why the audience will care about the issue (town officials of Bassfield). Examine the SWS source entry’s proper citation format, punctuation, and other essential components. The analysis part should explain how each source will be used to back up your strong thesis. Finally, I should use current sources that are no older than two to five years and format my work using SWS. 2) Explain how you used the feedback from Assignment 1 to help improve your writing in Assignment 2. Describe specific changes you made based on feedback and how they improved your work. I used the feedback from Assignment 1 to better develop my thesis statement. I used it to do research for supporting details to add to my evidence.

B I Sample text: There are potential criticisms of handling the feral cat population this way; some groups argue that simply capturing and euthanizing the cats is the best way to deal with this issue. B I Sample text: In her global review of feral cat management programs, researcher Brooke P. Deak indicates that the preferred approach in areas with highly threatened and potentially vulnerable wildlife species is eradication even though she acknowledges that this approach is resource intensive, time sensitive, and costly (4). Some individuals argue that it would be better to simply eliminate the cats, since sterilizing them does not solve the problem of ecological destruction and the cats are still exposed to constant danger without veterinary care.

Carol Jones, director of a Humane Society clinic in Georgia says, In the past, these cats were euthanized by the droves, but the problem never resolved because new cats just moved in and created a new colony (Hall, 2). Experience shows that simply killing the feral cats does not keep more cats from being born and moving into the same territories. B I Sample text: Focusing on efforts to spay and neuter these animals to address the root cause of the problem seems like a better use of resources, and it is far more humane than promoting the mass killing of helpless animals.
