Please respond to the following question:

If you were designing the Interpersonal Assignment, would you keep it the same or would you design it differently? If you would change it, describe what changes you would make? (Keep in mind that the goal is to create interaction between students, so changing it to be an independently done project is not a viable option) should b 260 words

below is the interpersonal assignment

Interpersonal assignment

1.As a team, choose an interpersonal communication topic mentioned in your text.

2.Review the information in the text on the chosen topic. Discuss your agreement or disagreement with the author’s conclusions. Explore your own, and other’s, personal experiences that relate to the topic.

3.Next, contact the library and find an article from a scholarly journal (preferably produced by a communication, psychological, or sociological organization) that directly relates to the subject matter. Also find at least 3 additional sources from books and/or popular magazines. Look for credible sources.

4.Compare and contrast the information from all sources. Do they support or contradict each other? Was there information from any one source that you feel should have been included in the others? Address any issues you believe are relevant. Give your opinion of the information in each of the sources.

5.Using your sources, create a 6-8 minute oral presentation discussing and analyzing the concept from the textbook, the journal, the videos, and personal experiences of the team members. Be sure to include the conclusions you have made. A correctly compiled list of references is required. You may present this either in speaking or PowerPoint form, which you will upload to YouTube. Do not use google as it requires a sign-in.

6.All aspects of the research and construction of the presentation should be shared equally by both

members of the interpersonal team.

7.After the presentation each team member will be required to complete a self-evaluation and a peer evaluation. The evaluation forms will be given to you on the day of your presentation and must be turned in prior to the next scheduled Module. The peer evaluation will allow you to grade your partner on his or her helpfulness on the entire project. The evaluations will be averaged with the earned grade.

  1. Grading for the assignment will be as follows: (1) presentation and reference list – 50 %, (2) evaluations – 50%. The entire presentation is worth 15% of your class grade.
  2. The presentation can be recorded to YouTube as a live presentation, or as a power point presentation with voice over.

1-Describe the sedimentary rock formations that occur in southern California’s transverse ranges.

Sedimentary rocks are preserved in the Mojave Desert, and the Death Valley. Sedimentary rock formed by the accumulation of mineral or organic particles at the Earth’s surface. Sedimentary rocks are also formed by the pre-existing rocks or once living organism. Sedimentary rock forms mostly consist of limestone and dolomite. Sedimentary rocks mostly form in water because the water carries forms of sediment. Many of the sedimentary rocks have formed from the Paleozoic period. According to the Geologic History of California “ shows a nearly 10,000 feet thick section exposed along Titus Canyon in Death Valley National Park” . This shows that these rocks have been forming for millions of years. Another common form of sedimentary rock that is along Southern California is Halite, and sandstone. Many sedimentary rocks can be formed in the various mountain ranges that are located in California and these rocks have been and are still forming for years. (Links to an external site.)

6-How does the El Nino/La Nina phenomenon affect California’s weather patterns?

El Nino, and La Nina are both weather phenomena. El Nino is the warm phase. This is associated with warm ocean water that forms in the central, and east central in the Pacific. An easier way to describe El Nino is the unusual warming in water surfaces. La Nina is a weather pattern that occurs in the Pacific ocean. When La Nina occurs it when strong winds push warm water at the ocean’s surface. El Nino affects California’s weather by causing increased rainfall which can cause landslides, flooding, and possibly eriosions. El Nino can cause many disasters but are mostly the most devastating in Southern California. La Nina causes warm, and dry winters. La Nina means very minimal rainfall which can be very devastating in California by causing droughts or even wildfires due to it being so dry. As stated by USC News “ La Niña (Links to an external site.) with a seasonal gift of warm, dry conditions. Federal weather forecasters say there’s greater than a 90% chance (Links to an external site.) such conditions will prevail across much of California and the Southwest this winter.” This means that La Nina causes our snowfall to melt quicker meaning we wont get as much of a water supply, this is why California is in a drought. (Links to an external site.)

5-From your reading, where do you think California would experience its next earthquake? This is just your opinion substantiated by the reading material, so there are no wrong answers, just unsubstantiated ones. Please be specific.

I think California would experience it’s next earthquake along the San Andrea’s fault. The San Andrea’s fault is a continental fault that extends roughly throughout California. This fault consists of the Pacific plate and the North American plate. This fault is very dangerous because of an earthquake in 2019 in Ridge-crest California, this has caused more stress on the plate meaning it would be more likely to rupture. The San Andrea’s fault is the most dangerous fault in the world as the length of it is 1,200 km, which is 750 miles. Scientists say that California is way overdue for a massive earthquake because of how big the stress on the tectonic plates in the San Andrea’s fault is. This is what makes me think this is where the next earthquake will be in California because it is the biggest and most dangerous fault in the world. Scientists have also said that if the San Andrea’s fault does rupture that there will be a devastating amount of deaths due to the amount of damage and destruction it will cause, it is also said that it may cause a tsunami in Los Angeles which has not happened in a couple of years.

4-Landslides, a type of mass wasting, especially affect the California coast. Explain where specifically these problems occur and why they do.

Landslides are when massive rocks, earth, and debris fall down a slope. Landslides occur because the amount of force from gravity is greater than friction causing all of these things to fall. According to USGS, science for changing world they state “Landslides are a type of “mass wasting,” which denotes any down-slope movement of soil and rock under the direct influence of gravity.” Mass wasting is the same thing as landslides, mass wasting is when rocks, and debris fall from a slope. Landslides are most common in Southern California along the bay area of San Francisco, it also can occur in the Sierra Nevada. Landslides are mostly caused by an intense amount of rainfall which causes the ground to lose friction from the sediment making gravity stronger than friction. Landslides can be very dangerous as they can destroy up to 40 structures, they can occur up to every 10 to 13 years. The last devastating landslide that occurred in California happened on January 9th, 2018 near Santa Barbara. This landslide was on the side of Hwy 1 which actually took a whole chunk out of the highway due to all the massive rocks falling on it. (Links to an external site.)

  1. Describe the unique development of San Francisco and its culture.

The development of San Francisco and its culture can be very interesting. San Francisco was made for the military.According to A&E Television Networks they state “ The first inhabitants of the San Francisco area arrived around 3000 B.C. By the 16th century, when the first Europeans sailed along the California coast (always missing the Golden Gate due to fog), the area was inhabited by the Ohlone-speaking Yelamu tribe.” The culture of San Francisco was made before the first automobile and was known for its local landscapes. Many new and old cultures had mixed, this is where the Victorian and modern architectures meet with each other. San Francisco is also known for their arts, music, food, festivals, museums, and architecture. It is home to many Mexican cultures. It has a great history of the Spanish- American and Mexico culture which is why it is heavily influenced by the Hispanic cultures. San Francisco is only around 400 miles long and has a population of 874,961. San Francisco is built on old ships from the mid- 1800’s. According to A&E Television Networks they state “ The first inhabitants of the San Francisco area arrived around 3000 B.C. By the 16th century, when the first Europeans sailed along the California coast (always missing the Golden Gate due to fog), the area was inhabited by the Ohlone-speaking Yelamu tribe.” Editors.

  1. Rather than city centers, explain why most people in southern Californians shop at suburban malls?

Most people shop at suburban malls rather than city centers because in Southern California there are three of the largest urban areas, and shopping centers. These urban shopping centers are located in San Diego, L.A, and San Francisco. shopping These urban malls are in one of the biggest transportation routes which means it attracts economic and cultural attention.California is known for all of the new industries and businesses expanding an according to William Shelby he states “ More recently, these newer centers expanded with their own suburbs sometimes known as exurbs” ( Shelby pg. 466). This means many small businesses are working in these urban industries and expanding themselves also. Many people have migrated into California to work in these businesses or start their own. This is why many people would rather shop in the urban areas as California’s growing urban areas are the state’s economic and cultural centers.

  1. Explain why the freeway network is necessary for connecting people throughout the Los Angeles Metropolitan area.

The freeway network is important for people passing through Los Angeles because the suburbs grew faster than freeways did. This means the roads were very busy making it hard to transport through the area. As stated by William Shelby “ Consequently, transportation has become one of the most crippling barriers facing the Los Angeles area’s economic future” ( Shelby pg. 474). This means it is important to build light rail systems to link each community from south, east, north, and west. In the L.A county there was a grant given for $40 million dollars for the city to create more public transportation projects, thus meaning it would create more people to use the city transportation over the freeways. Another form of public transportation would be the metro systems. It completed the central Metro Rail that links these systems, and it strives to make freeways more efficient and sustainable. The freeways can become very crowded in some areas and if people can take more public transportation it will help ease the freeways.

  1. Explain the tsunami danger along the northern California coast.

The tsunami danger along the northern coast of California is high due to Earthquakes, and volcanic, and landslides near the ocean floor which can cause tsunamis. Many of these tsunamis are generated far out in the ocean but can travel 100 miles away at 500 miles per hour. These tsunamis can cause several devastating results. The last horrific tsunami was December 2004 that traveled thousands of millions from Japan and hit the Pacific shore. Many of the tsunamis are more common around the ring of fire but they could happen to California’s coastline with the San Andrea’s fault being located in southern California. Records have shown that 18 tsunamis have hit California’s coast line since the 1850s but were not large enough to do any damage. Studies also show that California may be expected to have a major tsunami which would hit the west coast. Many of California’s tsunamis can be caused from earthquakes in different states, or countries.
