Do not use the same chemical you researched in unit ii.

Instructions
In this assignment, you will choose options from each category to design your own case study. Once you have selected one option from each category, you will use that profile to write a case study report. Do not use the same chemical you researched in Unit II. Be creative in developing your character by giving a name, occupation (if applicable), identity, and description of the individual and the situation and circumstances of the case study. The details of the effects of the chemical exposure should be supported by your references.
Step 1: Identify a specific chemical from ONE of these categories:
fungicide,
rodenticide,
herbicide, or
insecticide.
Step 2: Choose a profile of the individual affected:
adult or
child.
Step 3: Research at least two incidents of exposure of the chemical.
Step 4: Develop a case study of exposure of your chemical to the individual. Discuss the following in your case study:
Identify how the individual was exposed to the chemical.
Identify the exposure pathway of your chosen chemical.
What organ systems were affected by the chemical?
What acute and chronic effects of exposure to the chemical were observed? Would the effects have been different if the individual was younger or older?
How could exposure to the chemical be avoided?
The case study should include the following components:
Include all of the aspects in Step 4.
Utilize at least three credible references, one of which may be the textbook, and one of which must come from the CSU Online Library.
Include a minimum of at least two pages, not including title and reference pages.
All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.

What sort of political organizing has gone on around the issue of this commodity?

Hello! For this paper it is on a Commodity Flows Assessment Report and the commodity I have chosen is going to be Gem quality Diamonds from Sierra Leone in Africa.
Here are the instructions for the paper:
For this assignment, you will deepen your understanding of a particular commodity, with a focus on its environmental impacts and issues of environmental justice.

You will investigate your commodity using resourcetrade.earthLinks to an external site. to learn more about where the commodity or species is extracted to get to you. Use ejatlas.orgLinks to an external site., or conduct a web search for news articles or websites related to the environmental and social impact of extracting the commodity.
How the commodity originated. How long has this item existed as a commodity, rather as something people accessed directly (as a “use value”)?
Did it come into existence only recently?
Where was the commodity first developed?
Why was it developed?
Where is the origin of the commodity itself?
Is it only possible because of contributions from various geographies, or is it made from materials from only one origin?
How many different political spaces (that is, national states) are involved in its production?
Is the same commodity made in many different places, and if so, which ones?
What do those places have in common?
What are the pathways by which the commodity travels from its origins to the places of its use/consumption?
What kinds of impacts does it make along these pathways?
What are the conditions of the commodity’s use or consumption? Is it used widely?
Is it a “luxury“ good?
How expensive is it?
Is it widely available, or are there legal conditions that affect its use?
What impacts does the commodity’s production have on the environment where it is produced?
What about where it is consumed? What is the “after life“ of the commodity after it is used or consumed?
How is the commodity disposed of after use?
Where is it disposed of?
Where does it go, and what impact does it have in its “final“ resting place?
Who are the communities impacted by the commodity during all of this process?
Are these communities already part of marginalized groups in society?
Are they marginalized further by their proximity to pollution? What can be known about the impacts on nonhuman communities?
What sort of political organizing has gone on around the issue of this commodity?
What are the proposals of those who have politically organized about it?
Do they want to see changes in production? In consumption?
Are there alternatives to this commodity, in your opinion?
What could be done differently to improve environmental justice outcomes?
If there are no alternatives to this commodity, why not?
What could we do as a society to address the impacts that this commodity has, if not providing alternatives to it in particular?

The final report does not have a set length requirement but requires that you are detailed in your analysis and research. I am expecting about 2-3 pages of written (single-spaced) text total for the whole report, but if the research is deep, I imagine it will be longer. You can also incorporate the writing you did during Tuesday’s class into the final report. If there is information that you were unable to find, you must explain at least where you looked for this information, and how you approached figuring it out.
Your report should include a reference and citation list, which includes websites where you found information, as well as books, articles, movies, and so on. Remember to cite page numbers if you are using quotes!
Your report also may include images to illustrate the commodities pathway from creation to use and disposal.
The outline of contents should follow:
Intro/overview/your own story with the commodity
Origins/history/past/context
Extraction and production
Distribution/transportation
Consumption/Use
Disposal
Conclusions on environmental justice and change
References/citations
