Governments principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans. HIV.gov
collaborates with departments and agencies across the Federal government to provide
HIV/AIDS-related information to users. Material presented on the HIV.gov website is
considered Federal government information and is in the public domain.
This government information is relevant because it increases knowledge about
HIV and access to HIV services for people most at risk for or living with HIV. HIV is a
chronic disease which people need to avoid. This source will be used to give the readers
the official information about what HIV and AIDS are, how is HIV transmitted, and why
people need to prevent HIV. Also, these useful information will support for the reasons
why comprehensive sexual education should be taught at schools, and Why people who
have a high risk to contract HIV should practice healthy sexual lifestyle and use
medication to get rid of it.

safety information of the medication called TRUVADA.
TRUVADA for PrEP® (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a prescription medicine that
can help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 through sex, when taken every day and used
together with safer sex practices. I will use this website to support sufficient information

operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. As the national
health department, CDC governs critical science and provides essential health information
to prevent our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats.
This article is appropriate to support my persuasive essay because it indicates the
statistic of estimated new HIV infection in the United States by Transmission category in
2015 which shows that 68% of male to male sexual contact makes up the highest proportion
of those with HIV infection. Besides, this research statistics based on race, ethnicity, age
of those with HIV infection to help government and society come up with appropriate
impletion solutions with specific subjects.
4. Advocates for Youth. (2001). Sexual Education Programs: Definitions & Point-by-Point

organizations to advocate for policies and champion programs that regulate youth’s rights

young generation.
Comprehensive sexual education should be mandatory to be taught in public
schools to keep children away from sexual violence, discrimination, intentional pregnancy,
sexual transmitted diseases. It also teaches interpersonal and communication skills and
helps youth explore their value, goals, and options. This article is relevant to support for
one of the implement solutions to prevent HIV and STDs which school should be taught
about comprehensive sexual education.
5. Julie Moreau. ( 2018). Trump administration “exacerbating” LGBTQ health care
discrimination, report says.
Retrieved from https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/trump-administrationexacerbating-lgbtq-health-care-discrimination-report-says-n894151

platform of choice. Julie Moreau is an assistant professor of Political Science and Sexual
Diversity Studies at University of Toronto, Canada.
This article is appropriate to support for my persuasive essay because it shows the
opposing view of my stance which is government somehow discourage LGBTQ to access
to certain of their rights, especially to health care. For instance, in January 2018,
Department of Health and Human Services announced the creation of a religious freedom
division that would defend health care providers who refused care on the basis of their
religious or moral beliefs, and propose a rule that would that would expand the ability of
insurers and health care providers to deny service on the basis of religious or moral
objections. This article illustrates a particular example to show that it remains the
discrimination based on gender identify and sexual orientation. I would use this source to
clarify the opposing view of my problem which government and health care system are
not really supportive to LGBTQ’s illnesses and diseases. Therefore, I propose the new
regulation and public policy to keep LGBTQ away from discrimination and

by Steve Endean who is one of the first LGBTQ political action committee in the United
States. The HRC’s mission is to provide financial support on behalf of the LGBTQ
population to political candidates who have been supporting gender equality and human
rights legislation.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) youth need and deserve to learn
in settings that are consistent to their experiences and provide them the necessary education
to be safe and healthy. Most of LGBTQ youth are being in academic environment where
their teachers and textbooks inappropriately address their identities, behaviors and
experiences. This teaching method potentially influences more damaging, than in sex
education. I will use this article to clearly point out what school should teach student about
comprehensive sexual education. Also, This source will support for my stance which
education play a crucial role in fight discrimination, HIV, and STDs. The more they learn,
the better interaction they react.

Academic Format, Citation and Integrity Resources:
Please view this link to learn how to format in-text citations or make a references
Please view this link to learn what plagiarism is and how to avoid it:
When you search for information and ideas beyond the scope of common
knowledge, you conduct research. For example, we know the sky is blue, so you
do not need to research the color of the sky. You may, however, need to research
why the sky appears blue.
1. For information. We may need to look up facts, statistics, or timelines of
events. We may also want to learn more in-depth information about a subject so
we can make informed choices and hold informed opinions.
2. For support. When we have an idea or opinion, we may need to show
precedent exists for our idea (for example, city officials implemented our idea for
keeping parks clean and our idea worked), or that another person, an expert in
the field, agrees with us (for example, if we think smoking is bad for our health,
we may need to show someone who doubts us that many doctors and scientists
agree, in their expert opinion, smoking harms our health).
3. To engage in the academic dialogue. As scholars, we must consider issues
and ideas from all sides. Much of the research we do in college helps us consider
alternate points of view and make connections between and amongst competing
sources. For example, you may be undecided about whether spanking children is
a good disciplinary technique. Therefore, you would research different
perspectives on spanking children and discipline. Then, after you complete your
research, if you conclude spanking does not work and harms children, you should
not ignore the sources that disagree with you. Include opposing points of view in
your essay, examine these points of view, analyze them, and then synthesize or
rebut them with other research you have done to argue your point of view. Make
sure you understand the connections between different ideas and opinions.
First, always approach research as a good critical thinker. Be open minded and
skeptical. Always change your mind when you get new, better
information. College-level research differs from high school research because you
search for different information to analyze and synthesize.
You will want to look for different kinds of sources. Types of sources commonly
used in college writing include:
1. Academic Journal articles. Academic journal articles are articles written by
experts and peer-reviewed by other experts. They are specific, academic, and
some of the best in-depth information available.
2. Discipline-specific electronic sources. Discipline here means “academic
discipline” or field –such as physics, women’s studies, English, French literature or
psychology. A discipline-specific electronic source is a website that only has
information about that subject or discipline. So, for example, Wiki pages or Yahoo
Answers are not discipline-specific because they contain information about a lot
of different subjects from many people who are not always experts. However,
you can use the website for the National Domestic Violence Hotline for
information about domestic violence, or the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun
Violence website about gun laws (as would the National Rifle Association
3. Books. You can find books in “the stacks” –the third and fourth floor of the
library have books that can be found by using the call numbers associated with
4. Reference works. A reference work covers basic information about a
subject. These books include encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases and specific
works like the Diagnostic Statistical Manual used by psychology professionals.
5. Periodicals. A periodical, i.e., a newspaper or magazine, appears periodically
–every day or month or year. You can find articles from periodicals online or in
physical newspapers and magazines. Consider using: Newsweek, Time, Atlantic
Monthly, Slate, Salon, New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, or
the Los Angeles Times.
6. Consider using films, interviews, archival documents, podcasts and other
When you find a source, make sure you save the information about it so you can
easily find it again. Keep a record of every source that might have anything to do
with your subject by writing down the title and author.
You must evaluate sources for credibility and bias. To check the credibility of a
source, find out the qualifications of the author. A neuroscientist’s opinion of
how synapses in the brain work is more credible than my little sister’s opinion,
while my little sister probably knows more about shoes than the neuroscientist
does. Then, evaluate your source for bias. Biased sources only present one point
of view or attempt to convince readers of something particular, and so don’t
always show the whole picture. Check for bias. Read the “about” page of a
website or read through the article or book and ask yourself what objections
someone who disagrees with the author might have. It the author doesn’t
acknowledge those objections, the source might be biased. For example, if you
research scientific weight loss strategies, the Hydroxycut.com website is a biased
place to get information because they are trying to sell readers their product.
.com means commercial, and that indicates the owner of the website tries to sell
products or services. If you use any .com as a source, you need to show readers
its bias and use it as an example of marketing, rather than as a credible source.
People’s awareness of environmental protection has gradually increased and their
dependence on automobiles has decreased. Subway has become an indispensable part
of human modern daily life and plays an essential role in urban life. Of course, the
subway is also very important for Boston, which is the primary public transport for
people living in Boston. However, the Boston subway was built in the nineteenth
century and has been running for more than a hundred years, and it has many
disadvantages. I believe it needs to be improved according to the shortcomings that
have arisen at present. Therefore, I plan to do a lot of research on the potential safety
hazards in Boston subway facilities, the potential causes of these hazards and the
potential solutions to these hazards, to determine that Boston subway needs to be
improved. Then I plan to propose feasible solutions, such as updating subway vehicles.
Statement of the Problem
Boston’s obsolete subway vehicle facilities and poor infrastructure at subway
stations pose many potential safety hazards. I need to fully investigate the current status
of Boston subway vehicles and facilities, such as the history of use, the frequency of
maintenance of facilities and so on, to determine that the Boston subway …
