This is usually characterized by internal bleeding and the affected part grows numb and cold. The best first aid treatment for such is to immobilize the body and particularly the affected part especially in the absence of ice that can be placed over the closed wound as was Aron's case. The reason for immobilizing the part and the body is to reduce the internal bleeding. This is exactly what he did, he calmed himself down and tried to avoid movements at the initial time when his arm was crushed.
After the amputation, he ended up with an open wound that was prone to further bleeding and even infection. To avoid such from happening, the wound was adequately covered with the available clothing.
Aron also ended up with crashed bones on his right arm after breaking free from the grip of the rock. This meant he was to travel with he…… [Read More]
Life is unpredictable, and emergency situations can arise at any time. First aid allows anyone to respond to a medical emergency with little or no formal training and no expensive equipment. The phrase "first aid" refers to the fact that even if the injuries are serious and do require expert medical attention, the initial intervention can "literally mean the difference between life and death," (BBC Health). It is not just in extreme situations that the need for first aid can arise. Daily tasks performed in the home can lead to situations that require some know-how in preventing infection, illness, or death. When dealing with serious life-threatening situations such as automobile accidents or assaults, and knowing the basics of first aid can save lives. Professional emergency responders will eventually be there to help, but cannot always arrive soon enough to prevent medical injury or death. Therefore, knowing the basic…… [Read More]
Psychological First Aid (PFA) is a system that has been created to fill the newly perceived need of first responders and the way in which they meet the needs in turn experienced by victims in a disaster situation. ecently, officials recognized the need for a set of clear guidelines to help disaster personnel handle the stress and rigors of meeting the psychological and emotional needs of victims while also creating a platform for logistical support. To facilitate this, the PFA system consists of eight core actions, including contact and engagement, safety and comfort, stabilization, information gathering, practical assistance, connection with social supports, information on coping support, and linkage with collaborative service. Of these, the first two will be considered in more depth.
The first component, contact and engagement, is a response to the immediate challenge that disaster responders face when arriving at the site in question. This challenge focuses on…… [Read More]
All in all, frostbite is much easier to prevent than it is to cure. The old adage that an once of prevention is worth a pound of cure certainly holds true in this instance. Remembering to keep yourself covered up and monitoring the way your fingers and toes fell is the most important step in keeping yourself safe from frostbite. Simple awareness is usually the first step in preventing accidents and injuries, and playing with the cold is no exception. If your fingers begin to feel stiff or numb, you should go inside and warm them immediately. It might not be fun lose a snowball fight, but it's better than losing your fingers.

Aid to Dependent Corporations
The government of United States is incurring heavy revenue loss on account of the corporate sector subsidies and other special rebates. The friendly policies of the government aimed at promoting a positive business climate are sadly being exploited. In their interests to evade tax, businesses today are taking undue advantage of the favorable federal policies. In this regard I feel that our governments tax policies and corporate procedures need to be reexamined in order to eliminate the loopholes in them and at the same time support the common welfare schemes. Let us analyze the scenario in a little detail so that we can better appreciate the situation.
One by one our leading business corporations are reeling under accounting scams. I need not mention how well such a giant corporation like 'Enron' managed to disguise its financial information from the government and the stockholders. In the prevailing…… [Read More]
Local, state, and federal organizations and agencies offer resources for responding to natural disasters like earthquakes. In the event of an earthquake, as many first responder resources as are necessary can be mobilized to provide effective and cost-effective interventions. Depending on the severity of the quake, the extent of the damage to both property and human casualty, and the location of the event(s), various first responders may be called in for assistance. Most first responders will be from local organizations like law enforcement and fire departments as well as emergency medical technicians who will arrive on the scene for triage and medical intervention for saving lives and reducing the extent and severity of injuries. Local branches of the Red Cross may also be involved as first responders.
Then, each state will have its own list of governmental and non-governmental first responder agencies that can deploy more resource-intensive needs requiring specialized…… [Read More]
additional equipment used by first responders might include both breathing masks and full-fledged gas masks (depending on the circumstances), ropes, ladders, flashlights, helmets
(some sporting lights), anchor points, buoyancy control devices, stretchers (some with wheels, others are handheld) portable radios, food, water, antibiotics, insulin, needles and even more. Much of this equipment will be a matter of not only practicality, but of necessity as well.
First responders also need clothing that reflects the nature of the emergency with which they need to address. If the situation which they are addressing is one that includes biological components the clothing they must don is a bit different than that of regular first responder's clothing. First responders clothing can include a number of different items such as; insulated, waterproofed heavy and highly visible jackets, multiple-use bandanas, public safety, police and fire vests, polyurethane overalls, parkas, coats and waterproof jackets.

The United States has been one of the most affluent countries of the world. Because of this fact, the country has established a history of providing aid and comfort to other groups around the world who are suffering because of economic, agricultural, or other turmoil for whatever reason, whether it be failure of government, war, or natural disaster. Some advocate that this is the rightful position of more wealthy countries and populations, to provide assistance to those who are less fortunate. This is certainly true to some extent. However, when a nation is in times of difficulty itself, like the United States is currently embroiled in, it is more important that the government provide aid to its own citizens than looking at what it can do outside the nation's borders. On an individual level, it would certainly be nice for wealthy persons to assist their fellow men and women…… [Read More]
aid President George W. ush in policy formulation. It is an all-inclusive paper dealing with a wide range of issues such as the American economy in general- discussing issues such as budget deficits, tax cuts, medical assistance and benefits for retired people, the weakening American dollar, allocations for the military, intelligence and homeland security, job growth and the regime and policies of free trade. With regards to security, it features the recent American initiate on the war on terrorism. The issue of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and nuclear proliferation are discussed quite at length.
Another aspect listed in the paper is the 'future', as it was viewed from the era of the Vietnam War. The relevance of the cold war is also outlined as a great American victory. Compelling issues such as the role of oil, OPEC, the Middle East and the socio-political and economic situation after the incidents…… [Read More]
Despite increased student fees, the UC still encountered a $500 million shortfall or $2,500 per student. It has been undergoing severe pressure from the impact of the cuts. The quality of education at the U.S. has remained high, but there have been disturbing signs of erosion, nevertheless. The widening gap between the UC and the best private university has been alarming because the UC competes for the top teachers and students with these private universities. This widening gap should be a critical concern to the state and the federal governments because even excellent private universities are too small to meet California's or the nation's needs for a well-educated workforce in the future, to come up with innovations needed to fuel the economy and to generate jobs, and to introduce medical advances for the use and care of the sick and disabled. In the past decade, California's private research universities, Stanford,…… [Read More]
student aid programs.
Student finance aid can be described as funds given to the student to make it easy for them to fix cost of education such as fee and tuition, room and board, supplies and books where the students are undertaking their education like in universities, colleges or private schools.The funds which is being given out to public educations by government in general is known as financial aid meaning that it is being given to particular students, Financial aid can also be referred to as scholarship, although scholarship has some other components like students loans and grants.Loans are finance that one lend and must be paid back with an intrest after a period of time.In the case of student loan the money will be taken back after graduating.Aid is the help one is given.

For first responders, having an effective communications system is vital for ensuring the safety of civilians, personnel and utilizing resources efficiently. This improves everyone's ability to respond to emergency situations. While at the same time, it is ensuring that manpower and other reserves are deployed to those areas that need the most assistance. (Stroud, 2011)
One of the better tools for addressing communications needs is the computer aided dispatch service (CAD). To fully understand how this can be implemented (inside a New Jersey community) requires creating a plan that will be presented by showing the way this can address the needs of the community. This will be accomplished through focusing on the specifics and how it will tackle critical issues. (Stroud, 2011)

The CAD system consists of a software program that enables public communications for dispatch services and updating the locations of units in the…… [Read More]
These steps have been reiterated within the effectual conditions in the market. The marketing techniques used normally relate to the essential features of reflecting the best approaches of work within the government. This happens as done in the United States of America and many other nations that strive to live within a sound mechanism of growth and development in the field. As a way reflecting the best forms of performance, it has become a common feature to analyze the consequences of the Federal grants in aid programs under the legal frameworks and other humanitarian theories. These are theories that try to bring the best forms of growth and development in the field (Araral et al., 2001).
The policy problems that can be reflected in such a way are those related to the equality to access and make use of the grants as offered by the government. The mechanisms of performance…… [Read More]
The National Defense Education Act was the outcome of a bill that was present before the Sputnik scare.
While the categorical aid as described in the 1958 and 1965 legislation allowed some room for negotiations on the state-church issue, it yet faced another problem due to the opposition that did not want a federal control over their states. This dragged the implementation process of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. It was in the interest of the federal government to keep a check on how the funds that they allocated were being spent thus federal control was inevitable. The resistance however did not want any intervention and thus opposed any control and checks by the federal government.

Globalization: Daniel Yergin's "Giving Aid to orld Trade" and Helena Norberg-Hodge's "The March of the Monoculture"
In their respective articles about the effects of western influence on developing nations and areas of the world, Daniel Yergin, in "Giving Aid to orld Trade" and Helena Norberg-Hodge, in "The March of the Monoculture," express very different viewpoints on the benefits (or lack thereof) of western foreign presence in these places. Yergin is more sanguine about such presence overall. Norberg-Hodge is less so. hile Yergin writes from a purely economic perspective, Norberg-Hodge writes from a cultural one, which perhaps explains the differences in their viewpoints on this issue.
As Yergin suggests in "Giving Aid to orld Trade," for example, foreign aid may "improve health, education and national infrastructure . . . build legal and lending institutions . . . Such improvements can attract long-term foreign investment that creates jobs and encourages transfers of…… [Read More]

Work First Family Assistance Program
Welfare states are recognized by their efforts to help the citizens in leading a better life. Such states also help citizens rise to the point where they are able to lead a stable financial life. There are many programs currently running in America at state or federal level that help the citizens in one way or the other to be able to maintain basic operations of live. One such program is Work First Family Assistance. The Work First Family Assistance Program is an initiative by North Carolina that helps needy families and gives them funds. The program offers funds to the custodians for the dependent family members. These payments are normally made on the monthly basis. The assistance program supports only those citizens that can fulfill the criteria of the program. While every one-out-of five citizen of the state of North Carolina is potentially affected…… [Read More]
The first items addressed in this particular just society are the principles of liberty that shall apply to each individual as well as to the overall society. The first principle of liberty will be the right to an unlimited freedom of speech that will pertain to each and every person. This right will be sacrosanct and will be defended and upheld by all. Assuming that each individual will act in a just manner, this right should permeate throughout society and should be the one right that is held true and steadfast by all.
The second principle of liberty for the proposed just society is the freedom to choose whatever path the individual wishes to travel, as long as that path does not negatively impact others who have chosen different directions. The right to make decisions bears with it the right of responsibility for those decisions. If the individual makes…… [Read More]
Bomb at City Hall:
First Responder Protocol
Current facts as of today are is that a bomb of some type has exploded at City Hall, that an anonymous individual has called in to claim responsibility, and that he or she has indicated that a toxic substance (of unknown type) has been released during the event.
First Responder Role:
As one of the lead officers in the "first responder" team in the city, it is my job to use Terrorism Response principles as part of an overall damage control/containment strategy. This strategy will include four components, including the preliminary evaluation, scene safety, lifesaving efforts and scene protection, and security and control. Of course, of particular concern will be possible exposure to biological or chemical toxins.
Of course, when a first responder comes upon any scene, including the one we are faced with today, the first essential…… [Read More]
Wellum's stream-of-consciousness when he is fighting is both funny and compelling: "I reckon I'm a little above, just a fraction, and therefore gaining. God, I hope so. Coupled with fear, I now also feel a sense of anger. What right has this German to fly his snotty little aeroplane over our England and try to kill me? Who invited him? Just because he's stupid enough to believe his bloody Fuhrer and his master-race-dominating-the-world crap, he flies for his wretched Fatherland and tries to impose typical Teutonic bullying on our country. The bloody arrogance of it! Well, you'll not shoot me down you black-crossed sod" (Wellum 154). As evidenced in this quote, Wellum showed coolness and patriotism when he is fighting. Although at times the book can get mired in technical details about aircraft warfare, it also shows the typical life of a British pilot during the era -- using humor…… [Read More]
hen he conducts an experiment that goes awry and he becomes blue, furry, and fanged, he no longer looks like a person. However, his very essence, his mind, his capability for speech and all of his basic bodily functions are still the same as any other persons are. Moreover, McCoy maintains his humanity by continuing to work with Xavier to defeat the mutants led by Shaw who desire to kill humanity. In doing so, McCoy proves that regardless of how he looks, he still is contending for the side of humanity because up until the end of the movie, he looks like other people (for the most part). His dedication to the side of humanity in the face of adversity demonstrates that mutants who do not look like people still in fact is a person.
The example of Hank McCoy also proves that regular people can treat mutants that do…… [Read More]
(b) a birth parent, or another person acting on the parent's behalf, may receive or accept payments authorized in subsection (a) of this section; or a provider of a service listed in subsection (a) of this section may receive or accept payments for that service (N.C. Gen. Stat. § 48-10-103(a-b)(2010)).
Therefore, if Kippi were acting on behalf of an adoptive parent, her payments to the client may have been permissible under the law. Moreover, because the money would have come from the adoptive parent, rather than from Kippi herself, it might not have violated any ethical rules. There does not seem to be evidence of such a scenario in this case; however, it does provide a scenario in which Kippi's actions might be considered ethical, making it clear that, to determine the ethics of the scenario, one would need to know why the client was seeking the assistance of Legal…… [Read More]
International Humanitarian Aid: Aims vs. Outcome
Humanitarian aid represents a commitment to support vulnerable host populations that have experienced a sudden emergency, requiring ongoing assistance to maintain or improve their quality of life. Over the past 15 years the number of humanitarian agencies, private organizations, governments (taxpayers), corporations, individuals and other stakeholders have grown enormously. This group of diverse donors have differing mandates, values, goals, strategies, actors and activities, but most function under one universal humanitarian principle: to protect the vulnerable by decreasing morbidity and mortality, alleviate suffering and enhance well-being, human dignity, and quality of life. However, many stakeholders believe that humanitarian aid has been unsuccessful in delivering on these promises through lack of coordination and duplication of services. This results in a failure to meet the needs of those meant to benefit. Indeed humanitarian aid with its diverse mandates, roles, people, time lines and funding, as well as…… [Read More]
The communication aid would need to be durable so that Darmoth could not accidentally break it (he is not always very gentle with his "toys" and often does not realize his own strength) as well as easily portable so that he could carry it around with him. Perhaps having the tool be connected to a strap that kept it "hands free" when he is moving around would be ideal. It would have to be simple enough for him to learn how to operate, but also have a wide range of functions. The device must be able to translate Darmoth's thoughts into something that others -- even those who are not specifically trained -- can understand. The evaluation of a specialist would be extremely helpful so that the best kind of tool can be identified for Darmoth's needs.
The first step I would take in convincing the administration that an outside…… [Read More]
Oldest and Largest Federal Aid Program to Schools
Department of Education Web site, the headline above Title 1 reads: "Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged." Further into the government's description of Title 1 - the largest and oldest federal aid program for elementary and secondary schools - readers learn that it exists in order "...to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments." Those are laudable, lofty, idealistic and thoroughly worthy goals. But numerous questions arise in the mind of an objective Title 1 researcher, such as: 1) what is the most effective way in which Title 1 funds may be used? 2) what do teachers envision when they project Title 1 impacts five years from now? 3) Do the Title 1 resources truly make…… [Read More]
The Democrats took over Congress in the 2006 mid-term elections, and while the party wished to have the administration adopt a policy to either "get out now" of Iraq, or "stabilize, then withdraw."
Those suggestions were met with patriotic, even nationalistic opposition from Bush and his very vocal vice president, Dick Cheney (Hartung, 44-45). "However reasonable the merits" were of Congress cutting off funding for the war in Iraq, Hartung continues, Cheney and others supporting the administration held a hammer over their heads in the form of jingoistic phrases like, if you vote to cut off funds you are "voting against the troops" (Hartung, 44). Leaving American troops hanging out there in Iraq would be unthinkable, it was argued from the Bush point-of-view.
Meanwhile, author Lewis B. Smith points out that arguing against the Bush invasion of Iraq was pointless for Congress, due to the sense of patriotism in the…… [Read More]
Matrix and the Power of Myth
Most people spend their lives caught up in petty matters like money, food, career, and worldly obligations. We are surrounded by so much technology and "progress" that finding time for the important things in life can be difficult or impossible. Today, our society is dominated by the city. "It is all stone and rock, manufactured by human hands. It's a different would to grow up in when you are out in the forest with little chipmunks and the great owls." (Campbell 92). Quickly, the spiritual and subconscious side of the homosapien is being phased out; it is not productive. Even the heroes of modern society are losing their luster. The original hero of the West, Christ, is falling out of favor. Even American heroes like Washington, Jefferson, and oone stood for things that are now antiquated or misunderstood. Campbell believes, "life today is so…… [Read More]
External analysis first begins with an assessment of the macroeconomic conditions of both domestic and international firms. In our current economic environment domestically signals are mixed in regards to recovery or depression. Year over year, the unemployment rate has remained stagnant at historically high levels. This is important because employment rates have a direct correlation to economic prosperity and its subsequent rate of inflation. At 9.1% nearly 1 out of every 11 Americans are without work (1). This figure does not include individuals who are underemployed or working only part-time. When added these two criteria, the unemployment rate soars to above 16%. This doesn't bode well for the macroeconomic environment of the United States as nearly 70% of GDP comes from consumer spending. If consumers are without work, they subsequently will not spend as much to help bolster the economy. Consequently, more jobs can potentially be lost as more companies…… [Read More]
Since Wolf refused to give up the unedited portion of his videotape, he was served with a subpoena to force him to give up the tape by the District Attorney for the Ninth Circuit Court. He refused to comply with the subpoena, and was held in contempt of court. This process fits into the court structure in that a subpoena is used during the preliminary stages of a trial in order to allow both sides the capability to uncover all facts, allow all witnesses to be called, and to collect any other preliminary information needed before proceeding with the trial. "Contempt of Court" is a device used by the court system to attempt to coerce compliance with subpoena's issued under the law by means of fines or imprisonment. Wolf was imprisoned for being in contempt of court, and his lawyers argued in federal court to quash the subpoena, stating that…… [Read More]
Leisure World Business Plan
Startup living-assistance firm Leisure World is seeking to enter into the long-term care market as a provider of in-home caregivers. The company will seek to market itself as an alternative to the nursing home, and will use daytime television advertising as its primary mode to reaching a target of families with aging loved ones. Expenses for the organization will include insurance and certification costs, material resources, labor and advertising. Management will proceed from a top-down approach.
Description of the business
Leisure World is an alternative to nursing and long-term care facilities. For many families, the decision to find assistance for care with aging loves ones can be an extremely difficult one, both financially and emotionally. Relegating a family member to a nursing home can be both heartbreaking for the family and psychologically devastating to a loved one who must now endure the end stages of life…… [Read More]
students coming from secular families, their first introduction to religion comes from an unexpected venue: in the midst of the otherwise innocuous school requirement, the pledge of allegiance. Though by no means a prayer in the typical sense of the word, the pledge (which includes the lines "I pledge allegiance to the flag/of the United States of America/and to the republic for which it stands/one nation, under God" [emphasis mine]) toes the line between acknowledging America's Judeo-Christian history and, in a society that has growing numbers of atheists, agnostics, and polytheists, raising a subject matter that is irrelevant (or possibly even counterproductive) to having a welcoming educational environment.

It can be assumed, therefore, that some of these cups contained human blood. As of yet, however, there is no direct relationship established between the sacrifice ceremony and the goblets. It is only believed that the Moche performed a number of different rituals with sacrificial components for various reasons. One type of sacrifice called the Mountain Sacrifice, for instance, is only known through iconography.
Bourget, who excavated fifteen strata of human remains at the Huaca de la Luna, found evidence of at least five distinct rituals (Pillsbury 2001: 96). "Few of the skeletons were complete; many disarticulated body parts were scattered across the area." In addition to the human remains, the archeologists found fragments of at least 50 unfired clay effigies of nude males with ropes around their necks, which were shown seated cross-legged with their hands resting on their knees."

The first thing that stands out about McNally's and Bukowski's suggestions is that they are not mutually exclusive. In terms of resources, these two options require different resources, and in terms of outcomes they are solving different problems. This paper will analyze the situation and explain the best course of action.
The first step is to identify the problem. Here, the problem can be viewed as one of declining sales, or it can be explained in terms of product defects. By taking the generic view of the problem, Murphy is able to write off the issue with a generic response. This is the wrong approach to improving the company. By determining the issues that contribute to the lack of sales, a better solution can be found. This should require customer research but we have evidence that customers are dissatisfied with the product. This is the basis for the subsequent…… [Read More]
The first option is by far the most ethical from a utilitarian perspective. The first option allows the business to maintain its going concern condition. It will also help mitigate the damage of layoffs, wage restrictions, and benefit reductions to staff. This option, therefore provides the greatest amount of good to society at the lowest possible cost. The reputation of the business would also remain intact, further providing benefit to society, in that management is dedicated to its employees.
From an egoism perspective, the second option would be the most ethical. It allows for Joe Woodman, to serve his own needs at the expense of lost jobs, wages and benefits to others. Under the assumption that Joe wants to maintain control of the business, this alternative allows him to do so, while also helping the company generate stable and consistent cash flow. The use of expert management, would also…… [Read More]

Shift From First-order to Second-Order Cybernetics in the Family and Systemic Therapies
The strategic family therapy model came up in the 1950s and was inspired by two primary works: the works of Milton Erickson who came up with revolutionary paradoxical interventions which took advantage of people's resistance to change to help alter psychiatric symptoms first; and the works of Gregory Bateson and the Palo Alto Group that made use of cybernetics in communication patterns of the family. The style of a therapist changes as he or she gets better as a person and as they develop professionally, and also as per what is in fashion at the time. An older person has the chance to look at what happened in their past and see what worked and what failed. This gives them a better perspective of what works and what might not work for a given situation. The path is…… [Read More]

If a religion forbids dancing, those children should not have to learn a new dance, even though it might be a lot of fun for others. In other religions, any kind of image is forbidden. These children should not be served cookies that have, for instance, a jack-o-lantern or the country's flag on it.
At the same time, such a day can help students learn about each others' cultures. In those cases, parents who belong to those cultures might organize the activities. For instance, if there are Jewish children in the school, parents might make latkes with applesauce or have an activity that explains the significance of a Jewish holiday. Ethnic minorities might set up an activity that demonstrates something important about their culture and history. "Under Eights" can be a learning experience as well as a lot of fun.

Visual 1: Problems pilots have encountered with a particular type of jet engine
This pie chart is extremely confusing. There is a multi-colored section that does not even show traditional illustrative 'slices' but rather multi-colored blocks. This creates a 'busy' and hard-to-read visual. The relative sizes of the pie slices do not proportionately match up to the percentage of pilots experiencing various problems. The number of individuals having problems with the oil system (38%) is nearly half the size of the pie chart. It is also not clear that there is overlap between the problems some pilots have but not others. For example, do the pilots with fuel control problems also have problems with fuel pumps, even though fewer pilots have fuel pump problems overall?

Despite the fact that the fortifications around the Jewish population could only protect them so much, no where in Speyer's decree does it say that others would come to their aid in another situation like Mainz. A paper signed by the Bishop can only offer so much protection in times of violence and unrest.
From 300 A.D. On as Christianity became the prevailing religion, non-Christians were often murdered with shouts of "To the gallows with the Iscariot!" Jews, due to their very different appearance and lifestyle were easy to recognize and persecute. In addition, people were jealous they saw Jews who were comparatively more wealthy and educated. Further, the Jews refused to accept Christianity, which added to the fire. The Church aggravated the…… [Read More]
Quality, cost-competitiveness, customer service and first-to-market are all essential determinants to global commercial success. All sectors of the economic market are obliged to reduce costs and production times while increasing profits and market share. Ambitious organizations are turning to systems management programs such as Six Sigma or Total Quality Management to develop and maintain exceptional standards across the whole of an organization. This includes all aspects of production and manufacturing processes, as well as marketing, sales and distribution, financial considerations, employee motivation and customer service. Finally, product development in the form of a perennial portfolio of projects helps to ensure the viability of a company.
The incorporation of systems management programs has become integral to the renaissance and future of an organization. Often, enterprises will combine qualities from several methodologies such as integration aspects of Six Sigma with Project Management; the very topic of consideration for this essay that examines…… [Read More]
Psychological First AID in CISM
Psychological First Aid
In this scenario, an act of terrorism has occurred at a nuclear power facility. Portions of the facility were destroyed by the explosion, killing some of the workers instantly. However, the threat of a core meltdown is imminent and both remaining workers and first responders are on the scene trying to prevent a community-wide radiation event. Both remaining workers inside the plant and the first responders will be experiencing a similar type of stress. Stress will be due to the loss of life, including friends and coworkers, as well as the dangers to their personal well-being from the potential radiation exposure. Tertiary stress is caused by a feeling of responsibility for protecting the community from the potential radiation release, including the lives of their own families who live in the area.

Critical incident stress management plays an important role in assuring the psychological resilience necessary for those who are exposed to a traumatic incident. This proposal outlines a program to add mental Health Services to the existing emergency management plan for the Surry Power Plant. The current plan does not address mental health issues, and this is an important need that will need to be considered in the future. The current plan will modify the existing plan through the addition of mental health services for the community.

If this move does occur for the displaced resident, then the family, the resident and all of the resident's nurses, doctors, and other staff will be informed of the move. The move will only be temporary as the room is remodeled. It is not anticipated that any resident who leaves this facility will be away more than six months. This is just a temporary evacuation plan that will be initiated as the facility is being repaired over the next few weeks.
If a family wishes to remove their loved from the facility to go home during the remodel, they must obtain permission from nursing home administrator. This is a possible option for the resident, however, changes or adjustment in the monthly fees will not apply.
In the future, all rooms within this facility will have an evacuation plan for situations such as a roof clasp, tornado, windows breaking, and etc...hung…… [Read More]
Psychology of Consumer Behavior
The research into how young women perceive their own bodies -- in response to constant exposure to media images of un-naturally thin and extraordinarily beautiful females -- has been a popular topic for many years. But when it comes to male models that are nearly perfect, handsome and muscular in exactly the right places, there has not been as much attention or research. This paper reviews the potential of -- and reality of -- dissatisfaction in males based on the media's model images of males.
Body Image for Males -- Background
Annette La Greca is Professor of Psychology at the University of Miami and Gerald Koocher is the Dean of the School for Health Studies at Simmons College. As co-authors of The Parents' Guide to Psychological First Aid: Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Predictable Life Crises they assert that the research for body dissatisfaction among…… [Read More]
It is very clear to me the demands medical school has upon a person's time and character. Though I am well aware that nothing I do beforehand can fully prepare me for the experience of medical school, I have made substantial efforts to build my character as well as prepare my mind and body for the adventure of medical school.
One of the most valuable experiences a person can participate in is to volunteer, which is one reason why I have a variety of volunteer activities. Practicing medicine and being a licensed physician is, for me, a kind of civil service -- an overt dedication to one's community. I do not believe that any person, particularly a person who intends to be a doctor should wait until the formal training commences for the doctor's dedication to the community to begin.
As part of my discipline and preparation for…… [Read More]
transfer to 'Dhobiwalla? What's that?" I asked.
"Oh!" he said, laughing heartily as he leaned back comfortably in his seat, scotch in hand. "They're the laundry service in India!"
Mr. Patel was one of the many corporate clients with whom I worked on several occasions, spending hours at a time confined to the flight cabin while crossing trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic paths. The conversations that come up while we are miles in the air range from what our favorite fruits are to movies, to -- as I learned that day -- how we best like to do our laundry. Mr. Patel also told me the names of fruits and vegetables that I could barely pronounce at first but once I tried them in Bombay I have never been able to stop my cravings.
One of the most enriching aspects of my career as a flight attendant has been my encounters and…… [Read More]
aising Public Awareness of Special Needs
The sudden calamitous event that results to destructions or loss and devastation to the life and property is defined as disaster. In most cases, the damage caused by disasters tends to be immeasurable as it varies within the geographical location and climatic conditions causing a great influence on socio-economic, political as well as, cultural state of the affected areas. The various examples of disasters includes; the floods, earthquakes, droughts and many others which are caused as a result of manmade. All these affect each and every individual in the societies. However, when such disasters arise, there are special needs that are supposed to be given to special group of people within the society to ensure that their lives are not at risk.
The groups that should be given the first priority when these occur are the aged group, the pregnant women, the disabled people,…… [Read More]

The roles which women perform in society are varied and these roles are usually not being considered influential or remain unnoticed. Particularly those roles which are inclined towards religion remain not been put to question. For a long duration of the Argentinean history, religion has been having an undue influence. An optimistic effect on the outlook and ethics of the community of Argentina, realized over several decades was through the arrival of foreign ideas through immigration. Main significance of women is even now her responsibility as wife and mother. Genuine contributions of educated feminists of the early generation are for ascertaining Argentina's place among the international society of feminists and making a gauge of educational liberty for women. When one studies the proceedings in totality, there is certainly a fulfillment that women of Argentina have achieved much, even though Cecilia Grierson was the first among woman to have…… [Read More]
North American snakes are not as active in the night, so it is important to use a flashlight, avoid reaching into log areas or crevasses, or even to overturn rocks without being careful. Some snakes play dead, so ensure that the snake is indeed not breathing before you approach. This is particularly true for rock climbers since snakes enjoy basking on the warming rocks of a cliff.
If bitten, be sure to get away from the snake quickly, but cautiously.
Keep the victim lm and arm9out of shock).
Place the bitten area beneath the shoulder blades and hopefully have the victim lying down.
Do not give the patient anything to eat or drink; especially stimulants.
Try not to incise the would unless directed to by the physician.
Keep the victim as calm as possible and radio for help.
In remote areas, it is wise to carry a snake-bite kit, which…… [Read More]
Excerpts and links to written works:
Finally, brief excerpts from a representative sampling of the author's written works is provided below, with the complete work being available through the links provided.
1. Peoples' Control: "The Brooklyn Daily Eagle July 29, 1900, article 'Points-of-View' discuses elements that can be better understood from the perspective of "Panopticism." People living contemporary to the article were apparently devoted to restructuring society and shaping it as they considered being best for themselves and for the community as a whole. . . ."
In the essay, "Peoples' Control," I write in part that, "I have tried my best to [curb] this anxiety, to feel more comfortable in my position of surveillance." This project was written using resource materials found on a site that is powered by turnitin.com called writecheck.turnitin.com.

Guidance for the safe entry, safe clean up procedures, appropriate PPE for all recovery workers, and a hazard assessment for the most critical items or operations that can cause acute or chronic health effects or disease.
Recovery work in disaster areas such as those hit by Hurricane Katrina can pose a lot of problems. The workers here have to be aware of various possible dangers that range from live wires o tripping over the debris to stray animals biting them. Carefully evaluating the possible dangers can help us control and prevent them
Guidance for the safe entry
My first step would be to evaluate the work site in order to identify whether any of the following hazards are present: electrocution, material that we may fall over or planks or fallen glass, for instance, that are dislodged; I would check the noise rate; whether there are cut / laceration hazards (such…… [Read More]
Contracts and Performance-Based Acquisition
A contract is a planned and legal agreement made between two or more parties with intent. It could be oral or written and may involve business individuals, employers and employees, or tenants and land lords. elations built through contracts emerge from offers given, reception, intentions, considerations and genuine consent, and legal agreement from which the contract began. Every person involved in a contract gains responsibilities and rights similar to those of other individuals in the contract. Legally, all parties benefit equally from the contract, meaning all members are entitled to equal rights whatsoever. While contracts remain enforceable whether they are spoken or written, a written contract ensures legal security to all parties involved. This is because a spoken contract will only depend on the loyalty of people involved but with not future reference whatsoever. A written contract on the other hand will have recorded details on…… [Read More]
M5D1: Federalism and Emergency Management Grant
Our proposed grant would be designed to support the education of up-and-coming law enforcement candidates in the field of homeland security. States would be able to apply for a grant to provide scholarships to students at their state universities in the field of criminal justice who specifically wished to study this area of enforcement and serve in a criminal justice agency within the state for a specific number of years after graduation. This would encourage more highly-trained personnel to enter the field of criminal justice and better infuse recent academic knowledge about fighting terrorism and other critical areas into the actual hands-on practice of law enforcement agents in the field.
The program would be mutually advantageous to students and the states. Students would gain support for their education and would also have assurance about finding a job after leaving school. States would be able…… [Read More]
Without the dispatcher, prioritization of incoming calls would be less organized and could result in tragedy. Moreover, the dispatcher has to be on the ball about prank calls or false alarms, which can impede public safety and drain essential resources.
Dispatchers also often play a key role in directly assisting the public by providing advice and assistance. For example, the dispatcher might need to keep a caller on the line to offer important first aid procedures in a situation in which it is needed. In these situations, the role of the dispatcher is as important as the role of the emergency technician, for some simple advice given over the phone can help save lives. Similarly, the dispatcher will sometimes need to help keep the caller calm in a frightening situation like an armed burglary. Helping someone to refrain from panicking can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.

UNSTUCTUED PLAY AND CHILDEN'S DEVELOPMENT
Unstructured play in childhood
The effect of lack of unstructured play on children's development
Unstructured play as a form of therapy for children was readily accepted when it was first introduced in both homes and schools. In fact, sand-play in its early form was used to allow children interact, enhance their creativity and develop their social skills (Frost & Norquist, 2007). esearch shows that a fundamental aspect of human development is attained in the early childhood stages. As such, any measures to facilitate future development of an individual needs to be cultivated in the early stages of their lives (Miller & Almon, 2009). Over time, unstructured play -- once a highly regarded child development measure -- has lost its meaning and place (Miller & Almon, 2009). Increasing cases of poor child development evidenced by volumes of mental illness antisocial behaviors and physical challenges…… [Read More]
One of the major challenges impact healthcare providers is medical errors. These issues are challenging, as they will have an adverse impact on quality and safety. In the case of the ICU, these challenges are becoming more pronounced. This is because of the different conditions and large number of patients they are working with. A good example of this can be seen with insights from Orgeas (2010) who said, "Although intensive care units (ICUs) were created for patients with life-threatening illnesses, the ICU environment generates a high risk of iatrogenic events. Identifying medical errors (MEs) that serve as indicators for iatrogenic risk is crucial for purposes of reporting and prevention. We describe the selection of indicator MEs, the incidence of such MEs, and their relationship with mortality. We selected indicator MEs using Delphi techniques. An observational prospective multicenter cohort study of these MEs was conducted from March 27…… [Read More]
