  • Summary: The Importance Of The Evaluation Process

    Lastly, working with communities is similar, again, to working with individuals, families, and groups; however, it differs in the sense that the worker will focus on an entire community and how that group was involved in their work versus the smaller units that are above (Berkenmaier et al, 2104). II. Quantitative Evaluation Mille Lacs County utilizes the quantitative evaluation process very well. The quantitative evaluation process is one in which requires a social worker and client to meet over a period of time allowing the worker to take a variety of different measurements of their client (Berkenmaier et al, 2014). The two most common tools used are single-subject design (SSD) and goal attainment scaling (GAS) (Birkenmaier et al, 2014). Single-subject design is a grouping of evaluative procedures that looks at change in one client over a period of time; in addition, the worker is typically measuring things such as action, feeling, or behavior and these measurements are gathered by frequency or standardized scale that yields a numerical result (Birkenmaier et al, 2014). At Mille Lacs County I see this every time I am…

  • Two Things I Didn T Know Reflection

    Reflection Two Things I Didn’t Know The first thing I learned about the social work practice while at Mille Lacs County is that not all situations will play out how you want them to. Of course I knew that in a general sense; however, there were many situations that I was a part of and/or heard about at the county where things didn’t go down how they were expected to, wanted to, or maybe even should have. This job can be unpredictable with clients as well as with judges and that is something that…

Despite the general census of Minnesota anglers who recreationally fish, there are also many who heavily rely on fishing as a main source of food, and income. Jobs such as guide services rely on many fish and happy customers to create a…

  • Conger Lumber Company Case Study

    The culling of white pine on Blackstone Lake began in the late 1880s with the arrival of the Conger Lumber Company.

  • Loughberry Lake Lab Report

    This experiment was designed to test what the limiting nutrient was in Loughberry Lake, as well as examine the trophic state of the lake. In order to find out what the limiting nutrient was, we performed a few different tests. We began with a secchi disk test to see the transparency of the water. Then, we took water samples that we later used to test the turbidity levels of the water after adding varying amounts of phosphorous and nitrogen. Phosphorous was the limiting nutrient in the lake,…

  • Plasmid Synthesis

    The amounts of proteins produced by this gene were observed to see what strain would yield the most. Each of the strains tested had a mutation that would affect protein production in a negative or positive way. Knowing the amount of protein being produced with each strain allows us to understand how each strain affects protein yield. If the amount of protein is significantly decreased this could be due to the mutation deleting or repressing a promoter or enhancer in lac operon. If the amount…

  • Michigan Glaciers

    covers most of the planet. In Michigan especially, the effect that water has on the land can clearly be seen throughout the Upper and Lower Peninsulas. This change comes from rivers and lakes eroding, transporting, and depositing; glaciers carving the land and leaving behind water; and humans manipulating water for beneficial reasons. It’s no secret that Michigan is shaped by water simply due to the fact that it is surrounded by lakes on almost every border it has, but the rivers and lakes have…

  • The Power Of Dirty Waters Summary

    Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair’s “The Power of Dirty Waters: Indigenous Poetics” exemplifies the importance of language to Indigenous culture and how language is used to relate to the world. This is ultimately what he strives for as his thesis; he tries to argue the idea that language is the most important power for relation to the Earth and its inhabitants. Sinclair begins strongly by discussing the history of Lake Winnipeg, and how the name “Winnipeg” embodies the ecology of the lake. This…
