Please find an experimental or quasi-experimental or descriptive article you wild like to use for the article critique assignment. Make sure it is from a nursing journal and is not older than five years. on a topic of your interest.
Review the article and provide a summary of the article, and answer the following questions:
Discuss whether you think the article is true-experimental, quasi-experimental, or no experimental. You must also state what type of quantitative design (descriptive, correlational, etc.)
Where was the setting of the study?
What are the sampling methods? Does the sample reflect the population (representativeness)? What about sample size? What was the risk of sampling error in the study? Did the author acknowledge the sample criteria? Inclusion or exclusion?
What are the variables being measured?
What data collections methods were used?
What is the intervention?
United States. Corporate greed, is not the only contributing factor to water pollution in the United States. Littering is a societal norm, but becoming less prevalent. Every time a person chooses to litter or not recycle, these products end up in landfills, which represent a major portion of today’s water pollution. The trade off of ceasing these type of behavior has substantial benefits to the environment and our overall ecosystem. In this scenario the positives heavily outweigh the so called negatives. How was this policy justified to the public? The positive impact that the public experienced from this policy, made the decision overly justifiable. The federal government holds what is referred to as rights-based justification. This obligates the federal government to intervene when citizens natural rights are being violated. Controlling pollution levels in order to provide a safe environment and drinking water falls underneath this jurisdiction. 3.) After reading this article, I was left with a few questions. I was curious to as of what kind of pollution still existed after this policy was passed and how corporations go about obtaining a permit to lawfully discard materials into navigable waters. These questions lead me to the Safe Water Drinking Foundation, the NRDC, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Here I found information on several types of water pollution such as discarding chemical waste in non-navigable waters such as rivers, and small pounds. This is an unfortunate loophole found by those with the knowledge that their waste is harmful and are unable to attain a dumping permit. Land dumping is also a common source of water pollution that is caused by runoff from rain. In turn, I learned that obtaining a hazardous waste permit, is a heavily public involved process. A meeting is held and the public is allowed to attend and ask questions about what kind of waste the business handles and what will be discarded. After an official application is written, reviewed, and revised it is then released to the public for viewing and people are given the opportunity to accept or deny the request. 4.) Now that we are aware of the loophole that allows waste dumping in non-navigable waters, research showing the effects of these hazardous materials on the surround environments and the ones within close proximity of landfills could allow the federal government to appeal to change the verbiage of the this policy in order to protect all bodies of water. 5.) Laws and policies at the state and local level, interact with the federal water pollution control act, because they are required to enforce and to regulate the water pollution levels in cohesion with the federal laws. States may enforce a more strict policy when dealing with a water pollution issue, but if state involvement>GET ANSWER
