Drawing passages from other sources and inserting them into your paper without proper citation is plagiarism. 2. Drawing passages, even short phrases, word-for-word from other sources, citing the source, but without putting the quoted passages in quotation marks is plagiarism. Doing so makes it appear as though you have paraphrased a passage when you have not. Changing a few words does not constitute legitimate paraphrase. 3. Taking ideas, evidence, lines of arguments, or facts from other sources, even if those sources are not print sources, and even if you have put it in your own words, without indicating the source is plagiarism. 4. Unacknowledged parallel passages in existing sources, whether in print or online, will normally be taken as proof of plagiarism.

Biology and Technology in the Real World
Stem cells. A relative of a friend of yours had a spinal cord injury after a bad car accident. The medical team has decided that this patient is a good candidate for a clinical trial using stem cell therapy. Your friend has not had a biology course since high school, so you are going to write for him or her a two-page discussion of stem cell information. In your discussion, include a description of the biology of stem cells, and explain how these cells are unique in their ability to treat diseases and injury. The following website from NIH regarding stem cell research will be very helpful: http://stemcells.nih.gov/index.asp.
Addresses course outcomes 1-4:
recognize and explain how the scientific method is used to solve problems
make observations and discriminate between scientific and pseudoscientific explanations

Hazardous Material Incident
Hazardous Material Incident
Students should read the scenarios below and respond in the form of an essay, which should consist of several paragraphs and appropriate priority or task lists. Responses should be supported fully and completely. A well-thought-out response can be accomplished in 300-500 words (one or two pages, double spaced). Any published material used to support a response should be cited per the APA style guidelines. The Scenario: You are an EH&S professional returning home from your plant on a summer Friday afternoon at about 4 p.m. You have just picked up some materials from a nearby building supply store for a weekend backyard project (cement, sand, wood, concrete blocks, lumber, etc.). You are about one mile outside of the main population zone of your small town, and you come upon an accident scene in which a placarded tanker truck is turned on its side in a ditch about 20-25 feet off the two-lane road. There is no sign of fire and no sign of the driver from your vantage point inside your truck. The only sign you can see from your vantage point is a Dangerous When Wet placard with a Class 8 label code and a UN 1836 on an orange panel. What might this chemical be? You think you can make out an NFPA diamond with a 0 at 12 o'clock; a 2 at 3 o'clock; a 4 at 9 o'clock; and a slashed W at 6 o'clock. You take out the small binoculars from your truck and scan the scene. There seems to be a thin, small volume of dripping liquid (red to yellow color) coming from a valve on the tanker. There is an agricultural field directly next to the incident site. A large irrigation unit is spraying the fields, but the extent of the spray seems to end 20-25 yards away from the overturned truck. Slight, but steady winds are blowing about 5-8 mph across the scene towards town. Your small community has a fire department, but it does not have a hazardous material squad attached to it. Your chemical plant (3 shift operation, bleach, pool chemicals, and household products, 15 miles away) does have a hazardous material team that you trained and is under your direction. You do have your cell phone and an emergency response guidebook. 1. How should you proceed? Discuss the actions you should take. 2. What, if any, restraints should you exercise? 3. What advice would you give to any other individuals or drivers coming upon the scene? 4. What would you say to the next responders coming on the scene?
