Week 9 Written Assignment

When speaking with others who are older or younger than I, I don’t feel I have a problem with it. Because my son is 28 and I have many of his friends around me all the time I feel that I keep up with their world pretty well. As far as older folks, I again have no issue. I was born 19 years after my sister and 15 years after my brother, my parents were 40 and 50 when I was born. Therefore, all of my family were older and I relate to them very well. I rather enjoy talking with older folks, I find they are a wealth of information and I love to hear what they have to say.
Disabled people again I find very easy to talk to as well, my father was paralyzed when I was 13 due to a stroke and my mother was disabled as a teenager due to Scarlet Fever and walked with a very pronounced limp. Because of this I don’t see people as disabled but people who have overcome a great challenge and rose to the occasion. Because of this they have an insight that those of us who are disabled do. They can see things different and are more in tune to things. I find some with a handicap very interesting and exciting to talk with. I have learned much though the years from many people who are disabled.
Opposite gender folks I have no issue communicating with either, I find it just as easy to talk to a male as I do a female. I grew up around many males so I learned young that “boy” like different things than “girls” do. I learned to...
...identity. By deeming an indigenous Hawaiian as having at least 50-percent “Hawaiian” blood, sets forth a complicated intersection of authenticity and racial categorization; as if ones cultural relevance can be measured or merely calculated as a rights of passage. Blood quantum is the new apparatus of racism, for the reason that it enables a system that allots certain privileges to those whom possess the prescribed criteria of deservingness.
Kauanui brilliantly presents this idea that the government is using modes of reversed psychology to disconnect and dilute a people. Kauanui declares that such policy disconnects indigenous people from their culture by giving their very being a percentage of belonging -much like a fingerprint access point that grants admission to a building. Comparatively, she states that this tactic “contradicts the one-drop rule” (pg.15) that was used against African Americans, thus she asks us to interrogate why natives aren’t held to those same standards. Which in turn coerces us to think of what natives have versus a people whom were brought here- and that is land.
Kauanui suggest that we cannot begin to look at Hawaiian sovereignty if we do not acknowledge the power of ownership. This ownership extends to the possession of ones identity, thus their land. Which consequently fuels policy that seeks to construct what it means “to be”, in order to delegate “what can be given”. Institutionalizing the 50-percent rule is crucial...
...At the start of the novel, Marlow, along with the four other men, watch the Director of Companies. Marlow makes this note about him while the Director is looking seaward: “It was difficult to realize his work was not out there in the luminous estuary, but behind him, within the brooding gloom” (1). One would think that the Director’s work would be in the future, out before him and waiting to be taken care of. However, Marlow’s remark that the Director’s work is actually behind him is quite the contrary. The work cut out for the Director deals with history, and the struggle to understand and learn from the past.
Marlow makes a revelation to the crew: “I don’t like work—no man does—but I like what is in the work, the chance to find yourself” (25). Marlow believes that by doing work, one can discover oneself and his own perceptibility for himself in such a way which “no other man can ever know”.
After the cannibals help Marlow with his steamboat, Marlow recruits some of them for his crew. He notes that they are “fine fellows—cannibals… They were men one could work with, and [he is] grateful to them” (31). The cannibals are more productive and useful than the people in the original crew. Marlow deeply respects and admires their self-restraint from eating human flesh in front of Marlow.
Work and keeping busy are a means of looking inward, of truly understanding the surrounding world as well as truly understanding ourselves.
One instance of futility that Marlow...
12 Keypoints on CONSENT: the law in England
(Dept. of Health 2003)
When do Health Professionals need consent from patients?
1. Before you examine, treat or care for competent adult patients you must obtain their consent
2. Adults are always assumed to be competent unless demonstrated otherwise. If you have doubts about their competence, the question to ask is: “can this patient understand and weigh up the information needed to make a decision?” Unexpected decisions do not prove the patient is incompetent, but may indicate a need for further information or explanation.
3. Patients may be competent to make some health care decisions, even if they are not competent to make others.
4. Giving and obtaining consent is usually a process, not a one-off-event. Patients can change their minds and withdraw consent at any time. If there is any doubt, you should always check that the patient still consents to your caring for or treating them.
Can children consent for themselves?
5. Before examining, treating or caring for a child, you must also seek consent. Young people aged 16 and 17 are presumed to have the competence to give consent for themselves. Younger children who understand fully what is involved in the proposed procedure can also give consent (although their parents will ideally be involved) In other cases, someone with parental responsibility must give consent on the child’s behalf, unless they cannot be reached in an emergency. If a...
...capabilities in delivering competitive advantage at Southwest. A framework is presented illustrating that much of the value Southwest generates is:
(1) created through employee needs satisfaction;
(2) converted to customer and shareholder value via organizational capabilities; and
(3) captured by the firm as a result of its cost advantage and superior service.
This three-part framework may be applicable to other labor-dependent service organizations.
Southwest’s Major Courses of Actions (Southwest Airlines, here-in-after called, ‘SWA’)
1. SWA developed its industry niche and (contrary to many airlines) stuck to it.
2. The concept was to offer frequent, no-frills, low-fare service in short-haul markets using a point-to-point system rather than a hub-and-spoke system:
i. That meant about 10 daily flights between two cities, with no in-flight meals (SWA served only drinks and snacks),
ii. And a single class of open seating.
3. SWA was not listed on a computer reservation system so travelers or travel agents had to call SWA’s own ticket agents to get on a flight.
4. SWA had a frequent flier program that was based on number of trips, not mileage.
5. The Company had one of the best overall customer service records and had been given very high ratings on the overall customer satisfaction index.
6. SWA was able to keep cost down mainly because it was a no-frills carrier offering limited...

What you have learned
States in the South felt that tariff laws requiring import taxes on foreign products were unfair because they helped the northern
industrialists and hurt the southern agricultural economies. When South Carolina threatened to nullify the tariff treaties and secede from
the Union, President Jackson took a strong stand.
Although he believed in states' rights, Jackson’s response to the Nullification Crisis proved that the federal government had the authority
to put national interests over those of the individual states.
Now apply what you have learned about Jackson and the Nullification Crisis to a fictional United Nations scenario.
United Nations Scenario: The Secretary General of the United Nations forces member nations to cut back on carbon dioxide
emissions even if profitable national industries will lose money.
Ordinance of Nullification
Tariff of abominations

...An electronic medical record (EMR) is a digital version of a paper chart that contains all of a patient’s medical history from one practice. An EMR is mostly used by providers for diagnosis and treatment.
Benefits of Electronic Medical Records
An EMR is more beneficial than paper records because it allows providers to:
* Track data over time
* Identify patients who are due for preventive visits and screenings
* Monitor how patients measure up to certain parameters, such as vaccinations and blood pressure readings
* Improve overall quality of care in a practice
The information stored in EMRs is not easily shared with providers outside of a practice. A patient’s record might even have to be printed out and delivered by mail to specialists and other members of the care team.
Differences between Electronic Medical Records and Electronic Health Records
An EMR contains the standard medical and clinical data gathered in one provider’s office. Electronic health records (EHRs) go beyond the data collected in the provider’s office and include a more comprehensive patient history.
For example, EHRs are designed to contain and share information from all providers involved in a patient’s care. EHR data can be created, managed, and consulted by authorized providers and staff from across more than one health care organization.
Unlike EMRs, EHRs also allow a patient’s health record to move with them—to other health care providers, specialists, hospitals, nursing...
