Project #42593 - finalizing project

The project is about making summary and tomorrrow this needs to be finalized( revised ) and submitted.

What I want is in this 2 parts (long summary and brief summary), make a reflection which the instruction for the reflection including the instruction for the whole project:

The Details of How to Complete the Assignment:

For each of the four parts of this assignment there are specific content and formatting requirements. For clarity, please clearly label each section (and each part of each section!) of your paper.

  1. Longer Summary: This should be a one-page summary (about 300-350 words) of your chosen reading. For this longer summary, assume your audience is somebody who has not read the article and is not at all familiar with the subject matter but is interested and educated.  Your purpose in writing this longer summary is to give the reader the main idea (the claim or thesis) of your chosen reading as well as the highlights (identify the major examples the author uses). Remember: summaries are to be as objective as possible and should not include any of your own thoughts, responses, or critiques.
  2. Longer Summary Reflection: After you've written your one-page summary, write a short explanation (about 300 words) of your process of writing the one-page summary.  Talk about how you determined what to include in the summary and how you chose to organize it. This is a justification, of sorts, of why you made the choices you did when writing your one-page summary. The purpose of this reflection/explanation is to give JC (your instructor!) insight into what summarizing skills you have and how aware you are of your own writing and thinking processes.
  3. Brief Summary: Then, you will need to condense your one-page summary of your chosen reading to a brief summary (about 3-5 sentences -- no more than 100 words. When you do this you will need to think very carefully about the absolute essence of your chosen reading and what's essential to mention and what isn't. Again, assume your audience is unfamiliar with the essay or the subject matter.  Your purpose in writing this brief summary is to simply provide a broad overview of the reading -- but with enough specificity that we understand the author's main idea and purpose.
  4. Brief Summary Reflection: After you've written your brief summary, write a short explanation (about 300 words) of your process of condensing your longer summary into a brief summary. Talk about how you determined what to cut and what to keep and how you may have changed the wording or organization. This is a justification, of sorts, of why you made the writing choices you did. The purpose of this reflection/explanation is to give JC insight into whether or not you understand how summaries of different lengths require different amounts of detail.

Grading Criteria:

LONG SUMMARY

“Love: The Right Chemistry” by Anastasia Toufexis, is one of the most insightful articles that explain love from a chemical perspective. The author argues that Love is based on evolution, biology and chemistry. The article is particularly explaining how romance develops. According to the author, love does not only entail reproductive tract, but must be spiced up with romance for it to be worthy its meaning. The main aim of love, according to Anastasia Toufexis, is to bring male and females into long-term partnership, that is essential for child rearing. For example, in page 137, paragraph 5, the author argues that it is ecologically critical for a parent in open grasslands to pair up with a mate to rear the young (Toufexis p. 137, par. 5).  While trying to explain why some love lasts for some time, the author cites the Hellen Fisher’s idea of the “four-year itch.” The four year itch, according to Fisher is the time that two parents can raise an offspring. According to Fisher, the passion towards each other is strong when there is new offspring to be raised and it last for four years. After four years, each would find a new partner and start all over again. The author justifies the credibility of four-year itch by using divorce statistics, which, according to the author, peaks around the fourth year of marriage.

Another interesting thing noted about love is that it is not eternal and that human pattern can be described as “monogamy with clandestine adultery.” The reason is biological. For example, the woman would want to garner extra resources, life insurance, better genes, and more varied DNA for their biological futures. The author adds that it is the chemicals that make women and men get swept away. A number of chemicals are discussed in relation to love. The first group of chemicals is called amphetamines. These comprise of dopamine, norepinephrine and phenylethalamine (PEA) (Toufexis p. 138, par. 10).

However, the author claims that PEA does not last forever and hence is a source of passionate love, which is short-lived, and that after two to three years, the body simply can’t crank up the needed amount of PEA and it is during this time that the four-year itch principle starts. Another group of chemicals that account for compassionate and long term love is called endorphins (Toufexis p. 139, par. 13). They provide security, peace and calm. It is the source of mature love. The last point mention concerning love is what is called a love map. This explains why every person has one person who he or she loves most. It can be concluded that love and romance is indeed shaped by evolution, biology and chemistry.

SHORT SUMMARY

“Love: The Right Chemistry” by Anastasia Toufexis, is one of the most insightful articles that explain love from a chemical perspective. The article explaining how romance develops.

For example, in page 137, paragraph 5, the author argues that it is ecologically critical for a parent in open grasslands to pair up with a mate to rear the young (Toufexis p. 137, par. 5). The article is based on a thesis statement that love and romance is determined by an organized chemical chain of events beyond the control of an individual.
