Healthcare is currently undergoing fundamental change. First, baby boomers continue to utilize services at an alarming rate. The overall population is aging and as such, the healthcare infrastructure will need to change to accommodate changing dynamics within the industry. An older baby boomer generation is living much longer and utilizing more services than expected. Currently, 18% of the United States Gross Domestic Product is consumer by healthcare expenditures. In other words, 1 out of every 5 dollars spend in America is related to healthcare and baby boomers are a large reason for it. In addition to these changes, COVID-19 has exposed many of the inequities in the system as it relates to treatment and quality of care. A large-scale pandemic essentially overwhelmed the healthcare system causing unnecessary death and maltreatment. This has created the need for unprecedented stimulus on the part of many of the developed nations as it relates…… [Read More]
Film Analysis: COVID’s Hidden Toll
Although it is difficult to find a community that has not suffered in some manner due to the coronavirus epidemic, certain demographics have suffered more than others. Low-wage immigrant workers in necessary jobs such as agriculture and food preparation are some of the examples of the hardest-hit communities, as depicted in the film COVID’s Hidden Toll. While the mechanical analogy of social governance conceptualizes society as working harmoniously together as a unified, mechanized structure, the film demonstrates that such workers frequently fall through the cracks (Netting, Kettner, & McMurtry, 2016). They work on crews where managers are opaque about whether other employees have COVID symptoms. They are desperate for work, so work under conditions where they are all sharing the same bathrooms and close quarters.
In other words, the caring that one might hope an employer might show for an employee is not manifest. Employers…… [Read More]
Review of History and Physical Findings
The client is a 56-year-old Caucasian female who presents with complaints of fatigue that reportedly began 2 to 3 months prior to her visit. She reports that the fatigue is generalized and constant in duration, and has been progressively worsening since onset. The client reports feeling tired all the time and lacking the energy to do anything‘she could normally do’despite sleeping eight hours per night. No relieving factors were identified, although the client reports exertion as a possible aggravating factor. The client is married, has two grown kids, and works as a full-time office manager in an internal medicine office. She reports missing a day of work two weeks ago because she ‘couldn’t get out of bed’. She denies pain, fever, chills, or recent illnesses, but has gained 5 pounds since the last visit 6 months ago.
The client denies visual changes, ear pain,…… [Read More]
As it relates to the media, the transition to a work from home environment has created both efficiencies and issues within the industry. Working for home has allowed media companies and professional to maintain business operations through the pandemic. However, working from home has caused workers to work much longer hours as their work does not leave their home. In addition, the longer hours have created high stress levels within media personnel as they grapple with multiple responsibilities. Finally, working from home has caused certain individuals to experience mental health issues related to COVID-19 related stress. Many pundits have offered various solutions to these problems with many businesses adopting a variety of approaches to mitigate the risks of working from home. In all there are three primary responses to the work from home issue. The first response is to allow media to work from home permanently. The second response is…… [Read More]
Thirteen Days Analysis
Kennedy Khrushchev and Detente in Thirteen Days
Part 1: Introduction to the Analysis
The film Thirteen Days looks at the Kennedy Administration’s response to the threat of a Soviet missile attack launched from Cuba. The year is 1962; the main players are Kennedy and his team of advisors, including his brother Robert Kennedy, his close confidante Kennth O’Donnell and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara. Kennedy’s team is not only facing pressure from the Soviets (including Khrushchev, the Politburo, Soviet emissary Fomin, and Soviet Ambassador Dobrynin) but also from the Joint Chiefs, who represent the war hawks, eager to strike first and ask questions later. Kennedy’s problem is what to do: he states clearly that the US cannot allow Soviet missiles so close to its borders—but how to address the problem without making it worse is the question. Kennedy is reluctant to take any action that would lead to…… [Read More]
2 PAGE POSITION PAPER - UTILIZE SUMMATIVE PROPOSAL TO WRITE POSITION PAPER.
TITLE: write a 2-3 page position paper outlining the need for more funding to support ECE for underserved communities. with a 1 page reflection
EPS: 516 Education and Society
Early childhood education is a critical element within underserved communities. For one, it provides critical infrastructure needed to help the parents. Within the underserved communities, many children are born out of wedlock to unmarried women. These women need adequate childcare services so that they can work to maintain an adequate income for the household. ECE helps to facilitate this process by allowing women to work while also teaching their children the skills needed for tomorrow. ECE allows single mothers to better prepare their children with the skills needed to be successful in a rapidly changing environment as well. These two elements provide a basis in which ECE…… [Read More]
North and South
The origins of the differences between the north and the south in early colonial America on up to the Civil War stem from political beliefs, economics, and social customs. The South was always more agrarian than the North. The South was also interested in controlling its own trade with other countries instead of having it controlled for them by a centralized government. That is one reason the South resisted the Constitution and why Alexander Hamilton, the leading writer of the Federalist Papers, argued for centralization via a strong federal government. Hamilton thought that if the states could control their own destinies with respect to trade with other countries it would soon enough lead to foreign entanglements in wars and so on. The South rejected this idea out of hand with its Anti-Federalist position, but in the end, the Constitution was ratified following a compromise between the North…… [Read More]

Heart disease has been an enormous challenge in the United States. The most common heart disease in the nation is Coronary Heart disease (CHD). There are various heart diseases apart from CHD. Heart disease approximately causes 1 in 4 deaths in the US. This number happens to be rather high, hence the need for an intervention. Experts have blamed Americans' lifestyle and ignorance on the sharp rise of heart disease…… [Read More]
One of the crucial criminal-law appeals is R v. Le, which brings up questions about the kind of privacy interests protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms’ Section 8. This section protects against the police’s ability to search an individual or property without a warrant. How we, as civilians, interpret our relationships with the police is greatly subjective. Understanding police relations is caused by factors such as those close to us, past experiences, gender, economic and social class, race, and age. Where there is an arbitrary detention problem under section 9 of the Canadian Charter, these subjective encounters are interpreted by a court for determining whether there was detention or not. The Canadian court case decision R v Le 2019 SCC 34 was important in understanding the police’s relationships, which are context-informed, and modify the objective assessment of the Charter’s section 9 arbitrary detention.

Statement of the Problem
Law enforcement agencies have made substantial progress in reducing violent crime and property crime rates in many municipalities across the country, and the United States can be regarded as being significantly safer for its citizenry today compared to the alarmingly high crime rates in the 1990s (Gramlich, 2020). Nevertheless, pockets of high crime rates remain firmly in place in some American cities despite ongoing efforts by law enforcement agencies to address these trends. As the research that follows will show, combating property and violent crime is a challenging enterprise at any time, but the devastating effects of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic have adversely affected employment levels in many cities and a growing number of Americans are facing eviction and hunger. It is not surprising, then, that crime rates remain intractable in cities where unemployment rates were already a problem, and this has been the case with…… [Read More]
What makes “fake news” fake news? Why do some accept it as fact while others denounce it as fiction? Is it all a matter of perspective? That may be the case, but these questions are not really addressed by David Nemer in his Guardian article in which he identifies three types of Bolsonaro WhatsApp users. For Nemer, the question is: how is social media being used to help support this guy and what is going to happen when he takes over? This paper will provide a synthesis of the ideas discussed in Nemer’s article, assess them in terms of contributions and limitations of the author’s main point and concepts, and provide questions at the end to help facilitate class discussion.
There is one main argument in Nemer’s text and three crucial concepts. The main argument is that just as social media was used to get Trump elected in…… [Read More]
Article Critique: The Impact of Covid-19 Related School Shutdown on Sleep in Adolescents- A Natural Experiment
The study is experimental since the study itself mentions it was a natural experiment. In the experimental studies, an intervention is introduced, which could be the schools’ sudden shutdown with the advent of Covid-19. This sudden influence was studied with the qualitative study method, which was semi-structured interviews with 45 adolescents. The independent variable was the unanticipated school shut down due to Covid-19, and the dependent variable was the sleep behaviors of the developing adolescents. There was no manipulation done with the independent variable, which is the sudden outbreak of the pandemic. It was an abrupt incident that took place; it did not need any changes. Only the impacts of this sudden change were to be studied. The operationalization of the dependent variable, sleep behaviors, was done in the form of changes…… [Read More]
In Part II of her book The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, Zuboff (2019) lays out how the advance of surveillance capitalism has unfolded and where it is headed. In chapters 7 and 8, she makes two very important points—one practical and the other ideological—that necessarily serve as the framework for the advance of surveillance capitalism. The practical point is this: the world has become so immersed in the Internet that it will seem as though the Internet has disappeared, to paraphrase the words of Eric Schmidt at Davos; but of course it is only disappearing in the same sense that water disappears to fish who swim in it. The reality is that everyone will have so thoroughly immersed themselves in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) that they will no longer realize just how dependent upon the Internet and by extension surveillance capitalism they truly are. It will be just like breathing air…… [Read More]
Reducing Recidivism Using an Evidence Based Approach
One of the ironies of the United States, the “Land of the Free,” is that this country incarcerates more of its citizens per capita than any other country on earth today. While substantive changes are currently envisioned for reforming the nation’s criminal justice system, the harsh reality facing many lawbreakers has been the potential for lengthy prison sentences --even for some nonviolent offenses. Further exacerbating the problem are the numerous challenges that offenders face when they are released from incarceration into the community. Against this backdrop, it is not surprising that the recidivism rate for ex-offenders remains disturbingly high. Indeed, nearly 44% of all incarcerated prisons reoffend during their first year and more than two-thirds reoffend within 3 years following their release despite increasingly aggressive efforts by public and private sector organizations to help these individuals make the transition to society successfully.…… [Read More]
What were the primary motivations and factors that led to the U.S. shift from isolationism and continental expansion to imperialism by the late 19th and early 20th centuries?
America’s so-called “shift” from isolationism and continental expansion to imperialism by the late 19th and early 20th centuries was really nothing more than a natural evolution of America’s “Manifest Destiny.” Before the US could enter its imperial phase beginning with the Spanish-American War at the turn of the century, it had first to square accounts on the continent by pushing its borders as far as they could be pushed. Once the West had been thoroughly settled and the Union held together (the major conflict of the 19th century), the US could turn its attention to foreign lands and global plans to facilitate the spread of the American Empire. It would have been impossible for the US to achieve imperial objectives any…… [Read More]
Apple, Inc.: The Company’s Long-Term Growth Under Tim Cook
Steve Jobs, the iconic founder of Apple Inc., is largely associated with the company’s meteoric rise from 1996 - 2011. Jobs was a visionary and creative leader and started the company off on a trend to long-term success. Upon his death, Tim Cook took over as the CEO of Apple. This text largely concerns itself with how Cook has addressed the company’s long-term growth. Further, it also looks into how successful the said growth has been.
To begin with, as has been pointed out in the Case Study, Cook has managed to shepherd Apple Inc. into becoming the very first company with a capitalization of $800 billion. At the time of Job’s death, the company was worth $350 billion. This effectively means that under Tim’s watch, the company has more than doubled in value. It is, however, important to note that…… [Read More]
Opioid abuse is a problem in the US, particularly among the youth population. This is a health risk behavior that has arisen in the US for quite some time, largely due to the influence of the pharmaceutical industry’s push of drugs like Oxycontin onto the market (Coplan et al., 2016). The US Department of Health and Human Services (2020) reports that 0.7 percent of young people aged 12 years and up have reported an opioid use disorder, such as heroin or prescription pain reliever, in the past 12 months. One of the objectives of Healthy People 2030 is to “reduce the proportion of people who had opioid use disorder in the past year” (Healthy People 2030, 2021). This paper discusses the program that can be initiated to address this issue. It identifies the target group, the key stakeholders, the plan of action, and the barriers to be overcome.

Health insurance coverage is one of the major issues at the core of initiatives to reform the United States health sector. This issue has attracted considerable attention in health reform initiatives because of the relatively high number of uninsured and underinsured people in the country. The United States has a high number of uninsured and underinsured populations despite the increased federal expenditures on health. Recent healthcare reform legislation has sought to address this issue through various ways including the introduction of the mandate to buy health insurance. The mandate is essentially an individual or employer mandate to obtain private health insurance coverage. However, the individual mandate is one of the controversial provisions of the Affordable Care Act and has been the subject of numerous lawsuits. In addition, legislation has been enacted against the mandate to buy health insurance. This paper discusses lawsuits and legislation involved against the mandate to purchase…… [Read More]
Assimilation recounts the social, political, and cultural integration of the minority into a substantial, dominant society and culture. Assimilation is used in most cases to refer to the ethnic groups and immigrants coming to settle in new territories. These immigrants often acquire new attitudes and traditions through communication and contact with their host society. Either way, they also introduce some of their cultural practices to their host society(Penninx, 2005). The process of assimilation involves a step by step change of varying stages. When the new members of a community become utterly indistinguishable from the natives, it is apparent that complete assimilation has occurred (Spielberger, 2004). In this regard of assimilation, over a period, the new community cast off their original homeland's culture that touches on values, rituals, religion, language, and laws so that there is no distinguishable cultural disparity between them and the members of the native society that…… [Read More]
0. Literature review on Differentiation and engagement in computer science classrooms
Computer science offers educators aiming towards differentiated teaching within the secondary schoolroom setting a distinctive series of challenges. In particular, coding may prove to be a rigorous, exacting field that calls for a demonstration of organization and precision on the part of students before they can effectively create even the simplest programs. Computer science classes will probably witness learners utterly unfamiliar with coding and fluent pupils, in addition to those who cannot even type or need other personalized academic plans (Gregory and Chapman 2012; Shah et al. 2014). Thus, how will an educator teach a particular topic in computer science to such a diversity of learners, providing additional help to certain learners and more challenging activities to others while ensuring all learners’ engagement and motivation for smooth movement together in one single class?
This discussion assumes differentiation forms the basis…… [Read More]
ALLOWING AMERICANS TO END THEIR LIVES USING EUTHANASIA
Euthanasia is defined as the act of a physician intentionally ending the life of a person at the person's request. The physician will then administer the lethal substance to the person to end their life to relieve the pain and suffering they have been undergoing. The vital thing to note is that euthanasia is carried out by the physician upon the request of the patient who has a terminal illness and they are in severe pain (Cipriani & Di Fiorino, 2019). Considering there are conditions that are terminal and there is no likelihood of the patient recovering from the condition, it would be vital to allow the patient to make the ultimate decision to end their life and receive euthanasia. The suffering the patient will be going through could be severe and physicians cannot relieve the pain as pain medications are not…… [Read More]
Instagram consumer culture- shopping/e commerce , influencers and brand matching, brands seeking influencers through purchasing item yourself then promoting on your page (the deeper story)
With developed markets, economic growth is heavily predicated on consumerism. In these instances, consumers are enticed to purchase products designed to make like more enjoyable, convenient, and easier. These products are ultimately backed by strong brands which look to occupy a niche within the consumer mind. Traditionally, this was accomplished through print and television advertisements. Companies such as Sears and JC Penny pioneered shopping catalogs designed specifically to entice consumers to purchase a litany of various products, goods and services. With television, ads were run consistently during prime-time periods to further generate mind share with the consumer unconscious psyche. Brands such as Coca-Coca, Proctor and Gamble, and Johnson & Johnson began to emerge during this period and dominated using these traditional forms of advertising. Today,…… [Read More]
From the onset, it would be prudent to note that CBT has been shown to be an effective therapy technique – especially in attempts to adapt the behaviors of persons as well as alter their patters of thought. Indeed, as the American Psychological Association – APA (2017) points out, some of the concerns that CBT has been effective in addressing (as indicated by various research studies) include, but they are not limited to, “depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness.” In this text, I assess the utilization of CBT in family settings in comparison to its utilization in group settings. Further, I highlight some of the challenges that counselors could come across in their deployment of CBT in group settings.
To begin with, it is important to note that when CBT is applied to families, the focus happens to be…… [Read More]
Has The Outside World Done Enough To Prevent The Future Violence Against Rohingya?
The Rohingya Muslims had been facing discrimination when they lived in Myanmar, also known as Burma. The state's leader had been brutal against them as she conducted an "ethnic cleansing" and now faces a catastrophic humanitarian situation (BBC News, 2017). They were even denied immigration and citizenship in Myanmar and have therefore experienced circumstances of persecution.
United Nations and UN Security Council have been condemning these killings for a long time and have criticized Myanmar's attacks on Rohingya villagers, calling it highly unethical and unacceptable. The Rohingya victims fled to Bangladesh for help but are still not getting the country's required support and aid and the international aid agencies. They arrived in Bangladesh in devastating health conditions; however, the host country can only provide help according to its resources. The Rohingya villagers have been on their own…… [Read More]
