As they were running to catch the truck, Mariam wanted Fadi to put her Barbie in his backpack but they didn’t have time.

Medical home health care provides skilled nursing and therapy sessions to patient’s homes, or nursing homes. Results in this service will be costly to the Medicare Program.
State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
The reauthorization of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) in congress offers an opportunity to assess the legislation in light of recent developments in Medicare and states health coverage reform efforts. Fundamental child health goals can be achieved while still affording state additional flexibility to invest in populations of all ages.
Prospective Payment System (PPS)
The implementation of the Medicare Prospective Payment System (PPS) has resulted in major changes in the hospital industry and in the way the hospital services are used by physicians and patients. The central objectives of PPS were to reduce the rates of increases in Medicare inpatient payments and in overall hospital cost inflation.
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
NIH was originated in the 1887 (established by the Marine Hospital Service) as a bacteriological laboratory in Staten Island called The Hygienic Laboratory. The laboratory name was soon changed to The National Institutes of Health in 1930.

...Antietam- September 17th, 1862.
It was the first battle to be fought in the American Civil War to be fought on northern soil.
It was noted as the bloodiest day in American history. Over 23,000 soldiers were killed or
wounded. The Battle of Antietam ended the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia's first
invasion into the North and led to Abraham Lincoln's issuance of the preliminary
Appomattox- April 9th, 1865.
The Battle of Appomattox Courthouse was the Army of Northern Virginia’s final battle and
was the beginning of the end of the American Civil War. Confederate General Robert E. Lee,
surrendered 28,000 troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant. Days earlier, Lee had
abandoned the Confederate capital of Richmond and city of Petersburg, hoping to escape
with the remnants of his Army of Northern Virginia, meet up with additional Confederate
forces in North Carolina and resume fighting. Concluding, the American Civil War.
Civil Rights Act- The Civil Rights Act of 1866 granted citizenship and the same rights
enjoyed by white citizens to all male persons in the United States without distinction of
race or color, or previous condition of slavery or involuntary servitude. This act
contributed to the movement of the Radical Republican Movement which favored
increased intervention in the South and more aid to former slaves, ultimately to Andrew

Diversity means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences, it is about acceptance and respect. This can be race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs and others for example,
Equality, Equality is ensuring individuals or groups of individuals are treated fairly and equally and no less favourably, specific to their needs, including areas of race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and age. Promoting equality should remove discrimination in all of the above mentioned areas. Bullying, harassment or victimization are also considered as equality and diversity issues.
We can promote equality and diversity by treating all staff and students fairly, creating an inclusive culture for all staff and students and by ensuring equal access to opportunities to enable students to fully participate in the learning process. Also enabling all staff and students to develop to their full potential equipping staff and students with the skills to challenge inequality and discrimination in their work/study environment making certain that any learning materials do not discriminate against any individuals or groups ensuring policies, procedures and processes don't discriminate.
Diversity is about respecting each other’s beliefs or any other differences and encouraging others to as well. You can also promote and spread diversity...
...could have or would have ever imagined that this simple night out would end it warm blood and wet tears. The recent shooting in Aurora, Colorado is only another example of the repeating violence in the United States. Many blame these psychotic killings on the violence our children grow up with in the media and toys. “Shootings” by Adam Gopnik, expresses the views of others such as me, who believe that the blame on these shooting is not on the media, rather on the lack of control and actions the government takes to prevent further massacres.
Violence is inevitable. Some of the greatest psychological researchers have stated that the human mind is driven by the desire for sex and violence. The well-known book, Lord of the flies by William Golding, as well as many twentieth century movies, is based on this concept. In his article, Gopnik analyzes mass massacres in other countries and compares them to those of the United States. Although the other countries look down on the United States, they do not take the time to compare their past killers to those in the U.S. As Gopnik states, “Every nation has violent loners, and they tend to have remarkably similar profiles from one country and culture to the next.” This statement simply means that our culture has nothing to do with the violence we hear about all over the news. Part of the blame lies further than the shooting games and action movies our kids watch on television,...
In “shootings”, Adam Gopnik speaks about a shooting that took place in Virginia Tech Engineering building, and how the parents of the victims were told that it was not the right moment to ask questions. Gopnik also gives his points of view on how the shooting could have been avoided. Gopnik suggests that the main reason why these types of incidents keep happening in the United States is because there is a lack of security and requirements on who should not be able to buy a gun. The government should do what others countries are doing, and Gopnik’s example, is the massacre that happened in Paris Suborn of Nanterre in 2002, when a man killed eight people at a municipal meeting. Gun control became a key issue in the presidential election that year, and there has been no repeat incident.
I agree Gopnik. The government should do something to avoid having just anyone walk into a gun store and buy a gun without worrying if they have a mental illness. I think people should have stricter requirements to be able to own a gun; for example, if you are a police officer then a gun is a necessity. If you are just a normal citizen, you should have to demonstrate that you are capable of taking on the responsibility of gun ownership. This could save so many innocents lives and avoid many of the everyday incidents that happen in this country. I agree with Gopnik because he states that the government is not doing enough...
...a person will sign a contract for with the cellular provider.
The security hardware for this project will be firewalls and intrusion detection devices. These firewalls will be set to be able to be more restrictive in what they are letting in and out of the system. The intrusion detection devices will scan the system along with an actual person to ensure that someone is not trying to gain access to the KFF system. The software that will be used will be antivirus, anti-spyware that will be running at all times. Each of these programs will be checked on a regular basis to ensure that the definitions are up to date to ensure that the organization is getting its maximum protection against anything that is trying to gain access.
The timeline for this project will take approximately six months. The reason for this length of time is to ensure that all equipment and cabling is installed correctly and everything is working properly. There will be a time period of six months after the installation where we will come back to the stores if needed for maintenance purposes and to run any tests that are needed to ensure that everything is still running correctly before turning complete control over to the KFF organization.
In conclusion, Kudler Fine Foods is looking to upgrade their network from a LAN to a WAN which would also include wireless connectivity and VOIP phones in each of the stores. I think that with this design this will be able to be...
