Java Question

Task 1 Please download the starter code from this Google Drive link. Ensure that there are two files: Point.java and PointTester.java. You will be implementing several methods within Point.java, and you will be testing those methods in PointTester.java. For Task 1, you ONLY need to submit Point.java.
PointTester.java
Within PointTester.java are a few test cases for the Point class. As you are implementing Point.java, you should test thoroughly to make sure that your program is functioning as expected. We will not be collecting PointTester.java.
Point.java
Within Point.java, there are 3 private member variables given to you:
private int x – the x-coordinate of the Point (as an integer)
private int y – the y-coordinate of the Point (as an integer)
private String type – the type of the Point (e.g. “Home”, “School”, etc.)
private String stateName – Represents the name of a US state
private int avgCases – Represents the average number of cases per day (in thousands)
Take note of their declared types. Do NOT change any of their types.
We also provide you several getter methods. Please read and understand them.
For the rest of Point.java, you will need to implement the 4 following methods. DO NOT MODIFY ANY METHOD DECLARATIONS:
public Point(int x, int y, String type)
Within the constructor, you simply need to assign the 3 parameters to their respective member variables (e.g. assign the parameter x to the member variable x, and so on). You can assume that type will be a valid String.
public int manhattanDistance(Point p)
This method should return the Manhattan distance from this point to the parameter Point p. You can assume that p will be a valid Point.
In a 2D plane with p1 at (x1, y1) and p2 at (x2, y2), the calculation for the Manhattan distance is . For example, if this was at (-3, -2), and p was at (4, 7), then the Manhattan distance would be . See the image below for a visual example:

The Manhattan distance is .

IMPORTANT: For manhattanDistance (and for any other methods that require an absolute value calculation), you are NOT allowed to use any packages or classes such as Math to perform the absolute value calculation. We want you to be clever to figure out how to calculate the absolute value without using any other packages or classes!
public boolean checkSameType(Point p)
This method should return true if this point has the same type as the parameter Point p. Otherwise, this method should return false. For example, if this has the type “Store”, and p also has the type “Store”, then this method should return true. You can assume that p will be a valid Point.
public boolean checkIfNearby(Point p, int distance)
This method should return true if the Manhattan distance between this point and the parameter Point p is less than or equal to the parameter distance. Otherwise, the method should return false. For example, if this was at (-3, -2), p was at (4, 7), and distance was 15, then this method should return false. You can assume that p will be a valid Point, and that distance will be a non-negative integer.
Task 2 For Task 2, you will be creating a Class to represent the current condition of a State with respect to the COVID situation in that area.
Please download the starter code from this Google Drive link. Ensure that there are two files: CovidCondition.java and CovidConditionTester.java. You will be implementing several methods within CovidCondition.java, and you will be testing those methods in CovidConditionTester.java. Similar to the previous task, for Task 2, you ONLY need to submit CovidCondition.java.
CovidConditionTester.java
Within CovidConditionTester.java are a few test cases for the CovidCondition class. As you are implementing CovidCondition.java, you should test thoroughly to make sure that your program is functioning as expected. We will not be collecting CovidConditionTester.java.
CovidCondition.java
Within CovidCondition.java, there are 2 private member variables given to you:
Take note of their declared types. Do NOT change any of their types.
For the rest of CovidCondition.java, you will need to implement the 4 following methods. DO NOT MODIFY ANY METHOD DECLARATIONS:
public CovidCondition(String stateName, int avgCases)
Within the constructor, you simply need to assign the 2 parameters to their respective member variables (e.g. assign the parameter stateName to the member variable stateName, and so on). NOTE: avgCases does NOT have to be strictly non-negative. Keep that in mind when testing.
public String getDetails()
This method should return a single String that reads “[stateName] currently has a daily average of [avgCases] thousand cases”. Make sure to replace [stateName] and [avgCases] with the respective values of the member variables. For example, if stateName was California, and avgCases was 20, then the String should read: “California currently has a daily average of 20 thousand cases”.
public void updateAvgCases(int numOfCases)
This method should update the value of avgCases to the value of parameter numOfCases. HINT: To properly test this method, you should make use of getDetails() – this implies that you should ensure that getDetails() is implemented correctly!
public String checkTier()
This method should return the string:
“Yellow” – if the value of avgCases is strictly less than 10.
“Orange” – if the value of avgCases is between 10 and 50 (inclusive).
“Red” – if the value of avgCases is between 51 and 100 (inclusive).
“Purple” – if the value of avgCases is strictly greater than 100.
For example, if avgCases was 23, then checkTier() should return “Orange”

Response Posts: Respond to 2 of your groupmates’ submissions. Provide constructive feedback on some or all of the guidelines

Response Posts:

Respond to 2 of your groupmates’ submissions. Provide constructive feedback on some or all of the guidelines for the problem statement (i.e. is the policy problem clearly and concisely articulated? Is the problem as framed one that can be addressed by public intervention [vs private]? Is the policy problem-specific enough?). For each response post, title your post as “Response to [student’s name].”

Please note that the policy at issue is the proposed BMI screening policy. While BMI screening might be an upstream approach to addressing obesity over the longer term, this assignment should not be interpreted to mean that the policy “problem” is obesity in general. This assignment is requesting that you consider issues, concerns, benefits, and risks with the proposed BMI policy itself from your particular professional perspective. When you are invited to speak at any of the public forms (local, state, federal) on this proposed policy, what is it that you might want the policymakers to know and consider in their decision? For instance, if you are a public health professional, you might be particularly concerned about how this screening policy impacts sub-populations such as low-income communities or racially and culturally diverse communities. If you are a social worker, you might focus on a contemporaneous risk assessment for peer experiences of bullying and victimization.

Watching the following two videos (linked below) to help fill out the template attached to the files. Be sure

Watching the following two videos (linked below) to help fill out the template attached to the files. Be sure to be detailed as possible and use information about student learning and how the strategies the teacher uses to help the initial writing. Answer everything on the document and be specific and detailed throughout.

Extra note: The two videos are the same lesson, just split into two parts. Also, I attached a document to reference how to observe lesson videos to help out with filling out the template. I expect that the assignment to longer than 4 pages because the charts and boxes in the document are taking a lot of room away from the document. Please do more than 4 pages or I will send it back as much as I have to, so that I get a good grade.

Business week

Boris Johnson has apologised to the public and MPs, admitting for the first time he joined the lockdown-busting garden party in May 2020.
👀 But he claimed he “believed implicitly this was a work event”, noting the Downing Street garden had been “in constant use” during the pandemic.
‼️ “I want to apologise,” he told MPs. “I know millions of people across the country have made extraordinary sacrifices. I know the anguish they have been through, unable to mourn their loved ones… unable to do the things they love.”
🔴 But Sir Keir Starmer, the leader of main opposition party Labour, hit back. “The party is over prime minister,” he said, “the only question is will the British public kick him out, will his party kick him out or will he do the decent thing and resign?”

Gender Role Stereotypes answer follow questions

Gender Role Stereotypes
A stereotype is a preconceived notion, especially about a group of people. Many stereotypes are racist, sexist, or homophobic. Stereotypes include ideas about what is and is not male or female. The stereotypical feminine role includes such traits as gentleness, dependency, kindness, helpfulness, patience, and submissiveness.

Identifying and Citing Sources
When quoting a text, you must identify in your writing who or what you are quoting—for
example, the text itself, the name and title of a person quoted in the text, the name of an
historical figure referenced in the text, the title and date of a document that runs alongside the
main text, etc. If the meaning of the quote is not obvious, you should analyze and/ or explain
the quote’s meaning and how it helps support your argument.

Unless otherwise noted, it will be assumed that the textbook is the source for your writing. You
should not use outside sources (including web sites). But if you do, you must cite those outside
sources using footnotes or endnotes formatted according to the Chicago Manual of Style:
https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-1.html
Failure to place verbatim text from sources in quotes, failure to cite outside sources, or having
someone complete your assignment for you are forms of plagiarism and violations of the
student code. Students who are found to have plagiarized will receive a zero for the
assignment, and no opportunity to redo the assignment.
