I’m working on a sociology writing question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.Sarah Thebaud and Amanda Sharkey’s paper (“Unequal hard times”), highlights the role of gender in decisions about entrepreneurial lending through an intriguing puzzle: while gender stereotypes generally assume that women are safer investors because they are–on average–more risk averse then men, after the 2008 financial crisis, women entrepreneurs were less likely to obtain credit because they lacked an appropriate record of prior lending.In a brief, 750 word essay, I want you to address the general question of how gender stereotypes affect innovation from training and funding to design and production. MLA format.In addition to Thebaud and Sharkey’s paper, you may illustrate your argument with examples from the podcast 99% Invisible (Episode: Invisible Women (Links to an external site.). https://99percentinvisible.org/episode/invisible-w…) that deals with Caroline Criado Perez’s work on gendered design. But you must also use one additional example not provided in either Thebaud and Sharkey’s article or the 99% Invisible podcast. This will require doing a little bit of independent research on gender, innovation, and entrepreneurship (think of topics close to your interests, for example, women in science/engineering/ women in leadership positions/ women in government and public administration/ the gender of markerspaces, etc.). When using this example, you must include a complete bibliographic reference for it.

Can you help me understand this Sociology question?Drawing from the readings and lectures from this week, I’d like for you to apply the knowledge about deductive approaches, independent and dependent variables, and constructing strong hypotheses to help out a friend who wants to conduct some research. Please read over all the research proposals below and PICK ONE friend to help. In your response, you should help your friend by discussing the following:a. Identify two variables to study – one independent variable and one dependent variable.b. Explain why you picked these variables as the independent variable and dependent variable.c. Provide a STRONG hypothesis that clearly explains the relationship between these two variables. Research ProposalsMonica is an avid twitter user and follows several political activists. She starts to wonder about the relationship between people who use twitter and their involvement with political activism. What variables should she use to study this relationship? What should her independent and dependent variables be and why? Provide a possible hypothesis for Monica to test.Rachel wants to know the recent rise in mass shootings can shape the public’s view on gun control. What variables should she use to study this relationship? What should her independent and dependent variables be and why? Provide a possible hypothesis for Rachel to test.Phoebe wants to know if “money can buy you happiness.” What variables should she use to study this relationship [hint: you will need to help Phoebe define/operationalize the concept of happiness]? What should her independent and dependent variables be and why? Provide a possible hypothesis for Phoebe to test.Ross wants to know if commuting to campus impacts how students perform in their classes. What variables should he use to study this relationship? What should his independent and dependent variables be and why? Provide a possible hypothesis for Ross to test.Joey has decided to stop eating meat and animal byproducts and has embraced a vegan diet. He starts to wonder about the relationship between income levels of neighborhoods and people’s access to organic or fresh vegetables. What variables should he use to study this relationship? What should his independent and dependent variables be and why? Provide a possible hypothesis for Joey to test. While Chandler sits in traffic on the 57 freeway, he starts to wonder if weather impacts whether or not drivers exhibit road rage. What variables should he use to study this relationship? What should his independent and dependent variables be and why? Provide a possible hypothesis for Chandler to test.

I’m stuck on a Sociology question and need an explanation.Assignment 1: Working with DataIn contemporary society, we are surrounded by data every day. In order to be a well-informed member of the community, it’s important for you to be able to read and interpret graphical information, to understand the basics of how data is collected, where it comes from, and whether it is accurate. For your first assignment,Go to the Census Quick Facts website (https://www.census.gov/quickfacts).
In the search bar, type in your home town (It doesn’t matter how big or how small your home town is, it’s in there!). Be sure to tell me which town you are looking at. If you are from a country outside of the U.S., choose a town in the U.S. that you consider a community important to your life.
Review the data for your home town under each of the following categories. Don’t write them here.
Age and Sex
Race and Origin
Income and Poverty
4. Now, address the questions below and provide a profile of your home town:a. Describe some of the interesting characteristics of your hometown. How do these characteristics compare with national averages? Discuss at least two facts that you learned about your community that you found surprising or interesting.b. Now search for similar information for a town near yours that you suspect may have different characteristics. Or you might compare with the town in which you live now. Were your expectations of similarities or differences between your hometown and this other community confirmed? In what ways were they or were they not?c. Now, based on what you have found out in this assignment, create a community profile for your home town. Below are some examples of it:Darien, CT: Darien is a small town populated by very wealthy citizens who lead opulent lifestyles. A significant portion are business executives with salaries in excess of $200,000, while others are successful small-business owners. Citizens are predominantly white, late-middle aged, and married with children, but there are significant numbers of Asians, young families, and active seniors.Birmingham, AL: A large majority of Birmingham’s citizens are African-American, and virtually all of its citizens are either African-American or white—no other racial group makes up even one percent of the population. Additionally, less than 2 % of citizens identify as Hispanic, compared to the national average of about 12 %. Inner-city residents include many young, working-class singles and families; college students; and retired, blue-collar seniors. The outer rings of the city and its suburbs are home to more middle-aged and middle-class professionals.
