Uniform Crime Report and Its Accuracy Specifically

Words: 782 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 41942368

Uniform Crime Report and its accuracy, specifically how classification errors can impact the accuracy of that report. The Uniform Crime Report is considered the gold standard in U.S. crime statistics because it is the national clearinghouse for statistics. It permits comparisons of crime rates by state because they are classified in the same way at a national level. However, there are some problems with the Uniform Crime Report's statistical methodology. For example, one may be able to compare sexual assault statistics across states, but the reporting of that statistics will still depend on individual state classification of a crime. Not all problems with the use of the Uniform Crime Report are inherent in the process. For example, the article studied focuses on classification errors and how that can impact the report's accuracy. This is not an inherent problem, as the Uniform Crime Report does define the different crimes in such a way that someone with knowledge of the underlying criminal event could properly classify a crime. The problem is that the people doing the classification frequently only have access to partial information from the crime, such as conviction information, which may not reveal the crime that was actually committed.

Malaria Medical Information Description of

Words: 3454 Length: 13 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 7304837

In the earlier times, malaria was a big issue in the North America, Europe and some areas of northern Asia. The geographic distribution could still be offset by the shift in population mobility and climatic changes. Plasmodium falciparum is the most dominant species in the world while the P. Ovale dominating the sub-Saharan region of Africa, and P. vivax found in the other remaining regions according to Parasites and Health.12. However, the last two have a tendency of overlapping in their geographic distribution and they are at times very difficult to distinguish.

(2). Regional (within U.S.)

In the U.S.A. The malaria predominance is along the border points and the entry points into the U.S.A. As earlier noted. These are cases that are detected among the travelers returning from the malaria prone areas like Africa and South Asia as the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report10 noted. However, most of the cases are handled immediately and are not fatal as along as the patients follow the prescription.

(3). Rural vs. Urban

C. Gardiner et.al.13, 608-9, in their research based in Ghana found out that the malaria distribution among the rural and urban was so distinct. The research found out that the rural…… [Read More]

Oklahoma City Bombing on April 19 1995

Words: 2433 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 45247160

Oklahoma City Bombing

On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh detonated a bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, committing the single most destructive act of domestic terrorism in United States history (U.S. Department of Justice, 2012). The Oklahoma City bombing, and particularly McVeigh's process of radicalization, is an ideal case study for understanding how the ideology of the militia movement is conducive to domestic terrorism, because although McVeigh and his co-conspirators were not acting in the name of any particular militia group, McVeigh's stated intentions as well as his personal history prior to the bombing indicate an ideological alignment with the militia movement. The case of the Oklahoma City bombing justifies the classification of militias as terrorist or potential terrorist organizations, because it demonstrates how the extremist ideology of the militia movement encourages the radicalization of individuals, even if the larger organizations themselves are not directly implicated in terrorist activity. By examining McVeigh's stated motivations for the bombing, and the importance of the government action against the Branch Davidians, one is able to see the connection between McVeigh's actions and the ideology of the militia movement.

To begin, it is necessary to provide…… [Read More]

Birds Belong to the Aves

The hummingbird actually helps pollinate flowers. (National Geographic)

Birds live almost everywhere in the world. From the penguins at the South Pole to the Canadian Geese in the far north to the tiny finches and parrots of the jungle to the large and cumbersome Dodo birds in the Pacific, birds have adapted to whatever environment they are found in. Most birds live in an environments that have mild winters and summers, migrating by flying south in the winter to warmer climates and flying north in the summer, to find milder summers. (Sibley 5)… [Read More]

The largest bird is the ostrich of Australia, growing up to 9 feet tall, and the smallest bird is the bee hummingbird, which is only 2 1/2 inches long and weighs 0.06 oz. Hummingbirds can fly backwards and sideways, something that no other bird can do. The ostrich lays the largest eggs, which are up to 4.5 X 7 inches around and weigh 3 pounds. Since the egg is so large, the incubation period for an ostrich egg is 42-50 days, which is more than twice as long as a chicken's egg (20-22 days). (Duncraft 2006)

One of the most unusual birds is the flamingo, which is pink to white in color, has orange eyes, grows to be four feet tall and has the longest tongue of any bird. It lives to be about 50 years old and eats crustaceans, insects and algae. It eats by putting its head under the water, observing everything upside down, and filters organisms from the water with its long tongue.

Birds eat in many different ways, from filtering water or catching fish, as the water fowl do, to diving from high in the air at small animals in the fields, killing them on the spot and eating the raw meat with their beaks. Each kind of bird is built to make eating whatever is in their diet easier. Birds that eat fish have large beaks. Pelicans can actually store many fish in their huge beaks. Birds that must find food in tiny cracks or holes have long, sharp beaks that they use almost like straws. Some birds have extremely strong beaks so that they can crack open their food, such as the parrot. Some birds have long legs so they can run fast or stand in shallow water without getting their bodies wet. Other birds, like the swift, have extremely tiny legs that do not hinder their flight as they swoop through the air after mosquitoes. Each bird has adapted

Child Rearing Strategies

Words: 1023 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50194369

Parenting Styles:

In psychology, parenting styles can be described as mental constructs that represent typical strategies used by parents in child rearing. Generally, many parents tend to develop their own strategies through a mixture of factors, which emerge over time as children move across various stages of life and develop their own personalities. In essence, parenting styles are influenced by the personalities of parents and children but are largely influenced by the parent's culture. Parenting styles are associated with several theories and opinions on the most effective means of child rearing and the varying levels of time and initiatives parents are ready to invest in the process of child rearing. Notably, the investment of a parent in the growth and development of a child usually begins before birth. However, parenting styles are also determined by various principles that contribute to division of these strategies in different categories.

Principles of Parenting Styles:

As psychological constructs used in standard strategies for the growth and development, parenting styles are embedded on certain theories and opinions. In addition to the theoretical foundations of these strategies, parenting styles are also based on several categories depending on certain principles. It is important for parents to understand…… [Read More]

Grand Theory in Nursing

Nursing theory

Classification of nursing theories

Nursing theories are classified into there broad categories. These theories are grand theories, middle-range theories and situation specific theories. Grand nursing theories are very broad in scope and present general propositions and concepts in the nursing discipline. The theories at this level give both a reflection and provide insights that are useful in the nursing practice but they are not designed to be used as empirical testing tools. This gives a limit to the grand theories when it comes to giving directions, explanations and predictions of nursing in specific situations. The grand theories have the intention of being pertinent to all instances in the field of nursing. One such Grand theory as will be used in the context of this paper is the interpersonal theory whose main theorist or proponent behind it is Hildegard E. Peplau.

Second are the Mid-range theories which have a narrower scope as compared to grand theories. They are often used to bridge the gap that exists between grand theories and the actual nursing practice. They are only concerned with a specific area of interest within the discipline of nursing. They give propositions and concepts at…… [Read More]

Standardized Coding Systems and Nursing

Words: 666 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 48833173

Each standardized nursing language is designed for use in a number of clinical settings, including home care, ambulatory care, and inpatient treatment, with certain languages providing decided advantages within particular circumstances. Although it is true that "improved communication with other nurses, health care professionals, and administrators of the institutions in which nurses work is a key benefit of using a standardized nursing language" (Rutherford, 2008), the proliferation of several nursing languages throughout the years has inevitably resulted in discrepancies, wherein the personal preferences of nurses, the policy of a hospital's corporate ownership, or other factors determine when, where, and why a specific language is used.

To address the growing concern over the inability of nurse's to communicate through a single standardized language system, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) commissioned a comprehensive study which resulted in the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP) being selected as the most advantageous option. For primary care nurses tasked primarily with patient care, the ICNP allows for narrative-form descriptions of patient interactions, along with binary recordings of test results and pharmaceutical interactions, because it has been established that "other disciplines with interdependent functions allow the production of documentation that requires those departments (such as…… [Read More]

Today, computer technology makes it practical to collect, edit, distribute and store data in electronic format with little or no additional manual processing necessary (Kala pp). Integrating data from various agencies is now possible, "including police crash reports, truck inspections, traffic citations, motor vehicle records, emergency medical services (EMS) run reports, emergency and long-term health care records, highway inventories, and traffic volume records" (Kala pp).

According to the American National Standard's Manual on Classification of Motor Vehicle Accidents, there are eight definitions: Transport Vehicles and Transport Ways; Land Way, Land Vehicles and Uses; Injuries and Damages; Accidents; Locations;

Road vehicle Accident Types; Location of Road Vehicle Accidents; School Bus (Manual pp). There are 13 classifications: Classification of Persons by Injury Severity; Classification of Road Vehicles by Damage Severity; Accident Classification by Transport Vehicle Type; Accident Classification by Injury Severity; Accident Classification by Damage Severity; Accident Classification by Number of Vehicles; Accident Classification by First Harmful Event; Accident Classification by Location; Motor Vehicle Classification; Automobile Classification by Size; Automobile Classification by Weight; Motorcycle Classification by Type; Truck Classification by Weight (Manual pp).

Words: 1268 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 38313136

Risk analysis projects are relatively expensive, and were so even in the mainframe computing era, because they involved the collection and evaluation of a significant volume of data. Earlier risk studies were conducted by in house staff or consultants and the in house people did not have much experience regarding the matter and the consultants did not know much about the requirements of the organization.

Presently, the familiarization task has become more complicated with the complex, multi-site networked and client server-based technology used now. A new system has developed now and here the first description is of the security entry classification and this classification involves object identifiers which will help the security officer to work. For developing this system, the risk assessors have significant knowledge of operating systems, the documentation procedures are versatile and comprehensive enough to makes the data collection task achievable and since the basic system is ready, the cost of updates for risk assessment is minimal. At the same time, the system is fully documented and this documentation can be updated regularly, and the new system will reduce the costs and efforts for exercises in risk assessment.

Bioinformatics involves an integrated approach involving the use of information technology, computer science to biology and medicine as professional and knowledge fields. It encompasses the knowledge associated with information systems, artificial intelligence, databases, and algorithms, soft computing, software engineering, image processing, modeling and simulation, data mining, signal processing, computation theory and information, system an d control theory, discrete mathematics, statistics and circuit theory. On the other hand, machine learning entails a sub-division of artificial intelligence and operates with technical skills to permit computers to adapt to certain responses and initiate actions (Zhang et al., 2009). Machine learning entails a range technical knowledge that looks at the scientific application of search engines, natural language processing, bioinformatics, medical diagnosis and cheminformatics, analysis of the stock market, game playing and computer vision.

The development of machine learning has been as a matter of necessity given the fact that, current knowledge that needs some levels of sophistication and technological advancement has been on the consistent growth.

52). The researcher handles or controls the items differently. It is a form of Pareto analysis where items such as customers, documents, activities, inventory items, sales territories grouped into three categories namely a, B, and C. In order of their estimated importance. Consequently, 'A' items are very important, 'B' items are important, and 'C' items are marginally important. The organization gives 'A' rating to their best customers since they yield the highest revenue. Sales managers serve them. 'B' rated customers (with more attention) would then follow and lastly 'C' customers whom warrants less attention and are served accordingly.

Advantages of ABC Analysis

ABC analysis provides the materials manager with opportunity to exercise selective control. Thus, the manager will only focus on a few items despite a possible confrontation with a numerous stores of items. When the material manager resorts to concentrate on 'A' Class items only, he is in a better position to control inventories and show tangible outcomes in a short span of time. ABC analysis has helped in reducing clerical costs. Such analysis when applied to various organizations has resulted into better planning and improved inventory turnover (Swamidas, 2000, p. 32).

edu). While this example just discusses one manner in which a given policy can empower a healthcare marketing strategy, social marketing is currently so engrained in our culture that its powers are truly widespread. Social marketing allows products and brands to have more flexible and sensitive pricing as their prices can be changed at any minutes and consumers alerted, given the instantaneous nature of social marketing. The same goes for service as well -- any changes or enhancements that are made to services can be alerted to the public immediately. Likewise, social marketing is a two-way process: it allows consumers to chat their thoughts, ideas and concerns to marketers, giving them immediate and constant feedback. Social marketing can impact large groups of people at once, as readily seen by campaigns used by the AHA or the FDA (Kotler et al., 2008).

Social networking can also be a means of social marketing: marketers can engage in widespread social campaigns to impact human behavior and unleash them in one manner through social networking sites. For example, anti-smoking campaigns can achieve this as can fitness initiative and drug awareness campaigns. Social networking and social marketing can also assist in avoid ethical violations in…… [Read More]

Customer Service Triage at Home Depot

Despite the self-service checkout lanes being staffed by an associate to manage all four of the self-service locations, with custom orders and big-ticket items they had to inevitably get the store manager involved to alleviate the conflicts with customers. The time required to resolve both the custom orders and big-ticket purchases actually took more time for customers than it would have taken to just go through the traditional checkout lanes. The lack of information workflow, process, pricing, and employee knowledge of the processes was evident by watching the series of transactions completed. The triage or problem solving of the store manager took an inordinate amount of time to troubleshoot the pricing discrepancies on the service contracts alone would have made it much simpler to have also gone through the traditional check-out lanes. The more complex the transaction the greater the need for Home Depot to have managers and senior sales people involved. It appeared that navigating the many exceptions to these processes was the most critical step the senior managers in the store had to contend with, in effect learning about gaps in the self-service checkout through trial-and-error of finding problems and correcting them.…… [Read More]

This framework with different approaches creates the premise for every regime to be characterized according to it.

As such, following this structural determination, Western democracies can be characterized through the constitutional-institutional approach as regimes where the population participates in the governance process through the free, democratic elections, while at the same time limiting the extent of power that the government can have. These regimes promote capitalist and free market economies and promote tolerance in terms of religious beliefs etc.

On the other hand, the new democracies, especially the ones in Eastern Europe, seem to follow through on the pass of Western democracies, according to the three approaches. They are following the road from autocracy to democracy and building the Western-type of democratic infrastructure.

Regimes in East Asia are predominantly characterized via the economic-ideological approach, with the political regime subordinated to economic interest. Finally, military regimes or Islamic regimes have their own particularities in terms of the constitutional-institutional and the economic-ideological approaches.

As we can see, this type of classification seems to be the only one of the three that can successfully cover the present day's realities. Further more, because it is generously extensive, it also seems to be capable of…… [Read More]

It has always been statistically difficult to categorize diseases according to any one specific category since different professions that work with diseases have traditionally classified them according to different categories. The pathologist, for instance, is primarily interested in the natural course of the disease process, whilst the anatomist may prefer to have a classification that groups the disease according to the effected part of the body. The statistical classification of disease and injuries depends upon how the practitioner will use it, but since each practitioner uses it according to his particular field, statistical programs have generally had a hard time categorizing diseases statistically. More so, adjustments also have to be made to meet the different requirements of various different agencies, for instance, armed forces, hospitals, and medical…… [Read More]

Woodsa S & Wolkeb D

Words: 1993 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 91563836

According to reports coming out of Japan, teasing is often associated with poor performance, and may be instigated by teachers in many cases. America, it should be noted, tens to have an anti-intellectualism streak in its politics and nature, while Japan tends towards the opposite. It seems possible that the fact that Woodsa and Wolkeb discovered that less intelligent, lower class, and rural children were significantly more likely to be bullied represents an overarching social trend which puts down lower academic achievement in favor of higher achievement, and that teachers themselves are subtly giving children cues as to who they should bully. This point deserves to be more extensively explored, perhaps with comparative studies in America or other countries. Additionally, the school climate towards bullying may be a far more relevant issue than this research lets on.

The concept of victimization is also particularly important to this research. Woodsa and Wolkeb define this vital concept thus: "victimisation refers to a student being exposed to negative actions on the part of one or more other students' with the intention to hurt. Bullying must be a repeated action and occur regularly over time... And it usually involves an imbalance in strength, either…… [Read More]

Prokaryotic & Eukaryotic Cells Can Be Divided

Words: 1018 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 46092219

Prokaryotic & Eukaryotic Cells

Cells can be divided into two categories: prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Prokaryotic cells are significantly smaller than eukaryotic cells. This size difference is due to the many contents inside a eukaryotic cell that prokaryotic cells do not have. To begin with, prokaryotic cells are always going to be unicellular, while eukaryotic cells can also be unicellular but are many times multicellular (Murray & Baron, 2007). Prokaryotic cells do not have any membrane-bound organelles inside them, such as the nucleus, mitochondria, or lysosome as eukaryotic cells do. The DNA of eukaryotic cells is linear and is contained within the nucleus, while DNA in prokaryotic cells is circular and is contained within the nuclear body, a non-membrane surrounded structure (Murray & Baron, 2007). The number of ribosomes inside a prokaryotic cell is a lot less than those contained in a eukaryotic cell. Prokaryotic ribosomes are about 70s while eukaryotic ribosomes are larger, at 80s (Murray & Baron, 2007).

The differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic continue as one goes more into detail with the specific structures. A eukaryotic cell has a cytoskeleton which is made up of microfilaments and microtubules, proteins that support the cell, transport essential proteins, and…… [Read More]
