Memory Matrix: Diseases Cuba and France face

After reviewing Tables 8-1 (p. 123) and 11-2 (p. 164) in your textbook, determine the diseases Cuba and France face by combining the information into a memory matrix with each disease on the left (y axis) and France and Cuba on top (x axis). Put “Yes” or “No” inside the box to indicate if that country does or does not list the disease. Include at least ten diseases within the matrix. Along with the matrix, write a 100-word response describing your own personal explanation for the variations in diseases and disparities based on the two distinct cultures. In other words, what are the cultural factors contributing to the current state of diseases and disparities within each country?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
