System of Inquiry -- Durham

Words: 1859 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 65257024

To the extent the totality of circumstances suggest that possibility, even acceptance of the most nominal gratuities (i.e. A cup of coffee) is ethically inappropriate.

Similarly, even where the gratuity involved is of nominal value and there is no potential misunderstanding on the part of the individual proffering an otherwise appropriate gratuity, there is the issue of creating the appearance or inference of an improper relationship from the perspective of others observing the exchange. For example, while the proffer and acceptance of a single cup of coffee is excusable within the framework of ordinary positive community relations, the conspicuous regular transfer of even nominal gratuities in the presence of third parties can create an apparent inference of inappropriate influence regardless of whether or not that inference is necessarily accurate.

Conclusion

The SOI is intended to ensure that police officers do not misuse their duly authorized latitude to take different degrees…… [Read More]

Why Grading Is Good

Words: 642 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 87813578

Abolish Grading" by Paul Goodman

Paul Goodman's essay entitled, "A Proposal to Abolish Grading" is analyzes the effect of grading to student performance. Goodman's essay raises the question on whether grading is a good measure of determining student performance in schools and universities. The author's position in the essay states clearly that he is against grading as a measure that will be used in determining school performance, and this position is supported by three primary reasons. Goodman's first stance is that the pressure that a student gets from trying to achieve a higher grade in order to pass results to plagiarism and cheating; the second stance concerns the 'irrelevancy" of grading as a measure that will determine whether a student performed very well in school or not, and this is crucial when grades are used for appraising a student for his or her future career; and lastly, grading results to…… [Read More]

On the one hand, it can increase the uncertainty he accumulated during the time in which he was subject to abusive treatment. On the other hand, he can limit the level of trust he offers to any superior with authority. Therefore, the punishment-based system of motivation can cause serious long-term effects.

Another reason for which punishment-based motivation systems is not useful for the construction of a stable and reliable motivation is the fact that it is not built or it does not appeal to a system of values based on mutual respect. More precisely, the element of fear present in the relationship between the professor and the student is not able to have a consistent contribution to the establishment of a respectful relationship and once the fear is gone, an offensive attitude replaces any submissive behavior from the part of the student. Moreover, he comes to reject any future authority.…… [Read More]

Systems in HM:

One of the most significant aspects of the human resource department of an organization is evaluating the implemented HM methods to determine their effectiveness. Given that there is no single evaluation system that is applicable and effective for all organizations, different types of evaluation systems are used in human resources. However, all human resources evaluation systems are centered on employee performance evaluation. These systems act as a catapult in rewarding employees, determine performance issues, and help in developing strategies to improve an employee's performance. Some of these evaluation systems include

Comparative Standard Evaluation System:

The comparative standard evaluation system is used by organizations to grade employees against one another and is one of the traditional grading methods.

If they need to access a site for business purposes, they may not be able to do so, and that can lead to frustration and even lost contracts and opportunities (Miller, 2005). With that being the case, it would seem as though there should be a way to get around these restrictions. If people start avoiding restrictions, though, where does that end? At what point does it become unacceptable and dangerous, and at what point does it jeopardize the privacy, safety, and security of other people who have their information online?

The people who own the information (i.e. The people whose information is being collected) should be the ones to control how secure that information is in the sense of who can see it and access it. Because their names, dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers, and other information belongs only to them, they should be able to determine whether…… [Read More]

There are times when software fails to provide the protection that it should, but that is generally not the case with these particular tools. They should be used by any healthcare organization that is committed to keeping patient records private but also providing them via the internet, so that a patient can be treated anywhere in the world and his or her medical history can be quickly called up and verified. It could make a serious difference in that patient's treatment.

These particular tools are specifically for the kinds of businesses where there is a careful balance between access and privacy. It is vital that companies that collect personal data have a good plan in place for how to protect and transmit that data (DiBattiste, 2009). That is why these two companies chose the tools that they are currently using, because they knew that these particular tools would be the…… [Read More]

Because Confucianism arranged classes according to moral criteria rather than economic criteria, even a poor shenshi enjoyed enormous status and respect among the lower classes, so their position as higher-level shenshi probably helped gain cooperation. Shenshi held. Shenshi were members of the gentry in their own right, as well, with the wealth, honor, and tax-exempt status due their position. Shenshi handled taxes for the central government, as well, which helped supplement their income.

One could say that our country does engage in a meritocracy similar to the shenshi system. Our children all go to public schools. Though our schools' educational systems are supposed to be locally based, in reality we have a common national standard, especially in specific subjects, including nationalized textbooks. Public school teachers are specifically instructed to create good, obedient citizens (witness the whole Thanksgiving Pilgrim mythology). Those who test well then are paid to go to on…… [Read More]

U S Health Care System Is a Series

Words: 1314 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97821353

U.S. Health Care System is a series of geographically-determined networks. Established according to American beliefs and values, the system provides essentially two models of health care: the Market Justice Model, based on free enterprise and individual responsibility and ability/willingness to pay; the Social Justice Model, based on the public and equitable provision of basic health care services to all members. The two models are often in conflict with each other, with the Market Justice Model currently being the primary model.

Definition of a Health Care System

A "Health Care System" is commonly defined as "the complete network of agencies, facilities, and all providers of health care in a specified geographic area" (Mosby, 2008). Given that very broad definition, the United States has health care systems spanning such geographical areas as the entire nation, states, counties, cities, towns, villages and neighborhoods.

Information Technologies (IT) and Enterprise Systems Strategy

Having grown both from a series of acquisitions and a continual series of internal strategies to retain and grow their customer base, Aux Bons Soins (ABS) Information Technologies (IT) infrastructure has grown widely distributed to the point of being fragmented. The acquisitions of General Maritime Protection and Western General Insurance have created significant challenges in integrating their IT infrastructures into the ABS IT systems platforms and architectures. The senior management team anticipated a certain degree of overlap of system licensing, resources, functions and roles, yet didn't realize how much the duplication would slow response to customers. Concerned with the slow response to customers and market conditions, in addition to the continual discovery of just how inconsistent the reporting processes are across the three divisions, the senior management team initiates…… [Read More]

Obtaining a warrant to take blood sample of a person suspected of drunk driving but has refused to take breath test takes longer time and undermines the essence of time in this process. The Chief Justice John G. oberts Jr. together with other judges; however, expressed discomfort with what they termed government sanctioned bodily intrusions using sharp needles (Liptak, 2013).

Tyler, according to the Supreme Court, had the telltale signs of intoxication (Liptak, 2013). He had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and had the smell of alcohol in his breath. Besides, his performance in field sobriety test was poor. Tyler was adamant about taking breath test. He did not consent to taking blood test either.

Words: 1243 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 7237928

Performance Assessment Systems in Organizations

Many companies conduct performance assessment systems to cope with the current fast-paced global economy. The assessment reflects on companies past outcomes known as lagging indicators as well as the current leading indicators to inform the management on the latest developments. These indicators appropriately analyzed, reported and evaluated, help the companies achieve higher profits.

The use of leading indicators is increasingly getting popular with many companies and businesses today. According to Gjerde and Hughes (2007), computed deviations with standard cost systems give the management timely data on shortfalls of production allowing them to put emphasis on the unfavorable outcomes and take corrective measures to enhance profits.

In the case of South West Airlines, they put in place a performance assessment system that saw it successfully execute a cost leadership strategy. The liner recorded a growth in operating income using the performance assessment system and took advantage…… [Read More]

Such cognitive behavioral strategies often depend upon daily monitoring of behavior, and a system of rewards and punishments.

Another valuable means of assessment for all special needs student is the use of a portfolio. Grading students on relative improvement is important: composing a portfolio that shows improvement in meeting IEP goals over the semester, as well the extent to which the student was able to meet general classroom requirements creates a sense of accomplishment for the student as well as demonstrates to administrators and parents the educational benefits the student is accruing in the classroom.

Grading

In medical science, grading systems are used to determine the most effective methods of treatment and the most useful research evidence. The use of a grading system to determine the quality of research and evidence has been instigated by the GADE goup, a team that has brought into being a number of guidelines regarding the grading of evidence for medical purposes. In my nursing practice, the system I use is the ACCP grading system. This is a system created by an American College of Chest Physicians (hence, ACCP).

According to Guyatt et al. (2006), grading systems exist to determine the strength of recommendations made for treatment and the quality of the evidence presented for such treatement. In this way, grading systems enhance the usefulness of clinical guidelines, being that they use empirical evidence. What makes the ACCP system particularly useful in this regard is that it has provided enhanced…… [Read More]

Implicit in the use of these internal controls is keeping strategic plans and initiatives on track. This focus on continual alignment of strategies to their objectives through the use of internal controls is what separates those organizations attaining success with their supply chains or not.

PSI System and Other Educational

Words: 5885 Length: 20 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 5995460



Summary

The Keller/PSI approach to academic and professional training has been documented to improve student performance as measured by course completion rates and subject matter retention among students. On the other hand, there are considerable practical and technical problems implementing the Keller/PSI approach within traditional educational institutions. Meanwhile, there is little if any empirical evidence suggesting precisely how the Keller/PSI model benefits learning outside of the focus on the reduced deadline orientation that is the hallmark of that teaching methodology.

Substantial evidence exists to suggest that the success of the Keller/PSI approach is actually attributable to other changes typically attributable to Keller/PSI, such as the broadening of the range of media of instruction, despite the fact that those changes are natural consequences of the Keller/PSI design rather than deliberately conceived components of the approach. The empirical evidence of the increased success of CAPSI programs further bolsters that argument.

Safety Grounding System Well Checked

Words: 464 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 11589045

In grounded systems, you always connect equipment-grounding conductors to the system grounded conductor to provide a low impedance path for fault current. This allows the operation of overcurrent devices under ground-fault conditions.

When implementing a grounding system, there are important rules that must be followed to ensure that the system is efficient and safe. Extracted from Gregory Hayward's grounding system tips, the following procedures must be considered vital.

Bonding.

All ground points must be bonded together.

Physical Connections.

Use the recommended features of grounding components such as size and connection of ground wires.

Integrity Check of Grounding System.

It is important to check the total resistance of the ground by efficient grounding system checking equipment. Hayward indicates that the ground should ideally have a total resistance of.25 ohms and below.

Surge Protection

All electric services and points where electricity is distributed must have surge protector devices.

Abstract (ummary)

The purpose of this study was to consider the feasibility of implementing mastery learning strategies in higher education music settings. Initially, this was accomplished through an extensive review of course and research literature in other teaching/learning environments. Then a mastery-oriented course in basic conducting and score reading was designed and tested in a pilot study. A revised version of this course served as the instructional setting for an exploratory experimental study designed to compare a traditional approach to conducting instruction with two mastery-learning instructional paradigms -- the Keller Personalized ystem of Instruction (PI) and the Bloom Learning for Mastery (LFM) model of teaching and learning.

The experiment specifically focused on a comparison of corrective techniques commonly used in traditional and mastery-based instruction.

Appeal System

The appeal of a sentence or verdict in a criminal case is governed by statute. Consequently, the appeal represents the first opportunity that a convicted federal criminal may seek to contest a conviction or sentence. The appeal allows the system to engage in due care, and gives a final opportunity to the defendant to challenge before the conviction is finalized. In fact the conviction and sentence that has been applied to the individual is not avowed until the direct appeal has been heard by the higher appellate court. It should be noted that when a defendant is found not guilty by the court the government cannot appeal that verdict (The appeals process 2012). There are three avenues of appeal open to a defendant 1. A direct appeal, 2, a post-conviction relief petition and, 3 a petition for Writ of habeas Corpus (Criminal appeals process 2012)

National Incident Management System (NIMS)

eaknesses in the National Incident Management System

There is much controversy with regard to the contemporary idea of terrorism and concerning the actions that are being taken in order to discourage and generally prevent terrorist threats. The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the orld Trade center have influenced the masses to have a completely new understanding of terrorism in general. The Department of Homeland Security designed the National Incident Management System (NIMS) as a concept that would address a series of flaws in the way that the U.S. tried to cope with potential terrorist threats. Even with the fact that it was especially effective in preventing a series of terrorist acts, NIMS is essentially built as a constantly improving mechanism -- it is meant to discover weaknesses and make sure they are not used with the purpose of harming the public.

U.S. Vs. India Health Care Systems

THE INDIAN HEALTH CAE SYSTEMS

Health care refers to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, ailments, and other body malefactions. It refers to measures such as purchasing medical supplies, training, and hiring of medical personnel, financing research in the medical field and supporting treatment of patients (Stavans, 2010). The government and the private sector majorly provide this role. In most of the developed countries, private sector operators provide quality health care while the government only takes care of the medical care for the poor in the society.

The health care systems of the U.S. And India are different as seen from their unique characteristics. The U.S. health care system is run by the federal states and the private sector. It is advanced in terms of quality as seen from the beneficiaries' life expectancy. U.S.s' life expectancy is at a record high of 75…… [Read More]

Various trials held in New York and Maryland have led to significant jail terms even extending to life imprisonment for MS-13 members. The FBI was first attracted by violence, but proof of the gang's escalating level of organization has drawn public attention. Organization is an indicator of a future where MS-13 is will be a transnational network of criminals extending from the United States to suburban communities in a multitude of U.S. towns (Mandel, 2013).

Despite functions of violence, it is worrying to note that MS-13 movement is improving its structure and organization. Many major security experts are comparing it to the illegal groups of the 50s…… [Read More]

There are also other problems with this argument that do not directly stem from the logic of it, but rather from its interpretation of motivation and society. The argument that people should be allowed to be as successful as they can is certainly in keeping with the ideals of democracy, and cannot be argued against from any liberalist point-of-view. But without the many people who are not incredibly successful producing and consuming on a constant basis, no one would be able to achieve incredible success. Without a society in place with certain rules (i.e. laws) concerning conduct, business, worker's rights, etc., the situation would be worse than feudalism, and the American Dream of pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps would be completely obliterated, as there was simply no way to achieve class mobility in an upwards direction.

Knowledge Management of IT Systems

Words: 935 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Assessment Paper #: 57119918



All in all, Business Intelligence allows the company to better analyze the myriad of forces in the micro and macro environment and to make better informed decisions. It as such supports analytics, which in turn creates competitive advantages for the economic agent (Davenport, 2006), but it also creates internal strength and stability in the face of external pressures; it supports the processes of decision making.

Still, regardless of the benefits of Business Intelligence and Knowledge Management within the organizational setting, fact remains that the two concepts are more difficult to apply in practice than they are to define in theory. Otherwise put, economic agents face a wide array of challenges when actually implementing BI and KM in their institutions. Some of the more notable of these challenges include the following:

Strategies that enable a nurse on an interdisciplinary team to exert leadership

Nurse leaders act as clinicians, managers and mentors to shape the future of healthcare and have positively impact patient care outcomes. Nurses are required to successfully collaborate with a number of other disciplines when it comes to providing and improving patient care. This means that nurses are required to exert leadership in an interdisciplinary team even if they do not occupy formal leadership positions. There are several strategies that can enable a nurse on the interdisciplinary team to exert leadership without occupying a formal leadership position; taking a leadership stance and being a role model. A Leader is a person that directs other people towards achieving a goal he or she is supposed to influence others positively and help them work towards achieving a common goal.

Reducing Turnover in New Graduate Residence Program

Introduction- The process of recruiting and training, particularly in high-impact fields like healthcare, has become increasingly complex and expensive. Turnover is the rate at which an organization gains or loses employees. High turnover means that more employees are leaving more rapidly, which can be harmful to productivity and finances. Real costs of hiring including recruitment time, opportunity costs, and investment in both the new employee and the staff in Human Resources. Indirect costs include training, loss of production, reduction of performance levels, overtime due to inexperience, etc. In fact, this issue is so important that in for-profit organizations, the cost of employee turnover is estimated to be about 150% of the total payroll and benefit package (Rothwell, 2012). One needs to also understand the high costs of post-employment; drug-screening, physical exams, orientation, learning curve, coaching from others, etc. Staff time is difficult to…… [Read More]

How did George Soros make money in the international currency markets? as it something to do with his understanding of the international financial system, or just good luck?

Hungarian-born George Soros started making a name in financial speculation in the late 1960s, when he started investing with his own fund known as the Quantum Fund. Soros's speculations began making big news and he was able to gather a rather large following. The bulk of his fortune came from attacks on major currencies. For example, he was able to off major attacks on the currencies of Great Britain and Italy by speculating against them. Soros would bet against the currencies on the exchange rate market in a big way. The news of Soros's moves would also gather a lot of publicity that furthered his cause.

Students who have low self-efficacy will be likely to give up easily, avoid challenging tasks, focus on their failings, and quickly lose confidence at the first sign of criticism (Cherry, 2013). Bandura's social cognitive theory and the concept of self-efficacy can be applied to this classroom with regard to the differences between genders. Clearly, boys had a high sense of self-efficacy vs. The girls, and the teacher did not recognize this fact. Again, refraining from offering feedback immediately after a verbal presentation might help the students with low self-efficacy address challenges in a safe way. As they build self-efficacy, learn to enjoy the art of failing gracefully, and see difficult tasks through to the end, the girls may increase their self-efficacy. The teacher can achieve this through gentle encouragement.

Self-regulated learning is related to social learning, motivation, and self-efficacy. In this classroom, the teacher already incorporates activities that will encourage…… [Read More]

Traditional methods of grading and scoring children's writing are being replaced in the modern educational system with feedback and constructive criticism of the work, rather than a trophy grade or labeling score. This study reviews literature previously compiled on the subject of feedback in the development of children's writing, as well as conducting original research with a small group of students and teachers that helps evaluate the role of feedback in writing, as well as determining what types of feedback are the most effective.

Overview & Evaluation of the Project

According to a seasoned author of the ritish Educational Research Journal, "Education without educational research can be governed by dogma, superstition, tradition and other forms of prejudice about what will work well and be 'good for' those involved in the educational process."

The confirmation that the students who had some sort of shortcoming whether in the financial sector, minority aspect or admittance-timeline factor were the ones who mainly enrolled in the for-profit educational institution was made by Apling and Aleman in a study they conducted in 1990, and Lee and Merisotis in a study they conducted in the same year which were also then matched by Phipps et al.

Care of Patients With Cancer

Diagnosis and Staging of Cancer

Because cancer is a complex disorder that often progresses over long periods of time -- including long periods before an actual diagnosis can be made -- it is very useful to medical practitioners to identify various stages in the progression of the disease. Diagnosis may occur as the result of presenting complaints that cause a patient to seek medical help, or diagnosis may occur when routine check-ups lead to a suspicion by a physician or a laboratory specialist that a more thorough investigation is indicated. Indeed, one of the reasons why certain procedures are included in routine annual physicals is because these tests result in a diagnosis at sufficiently high rates to make them worth conducting. As medical technology advances, the procedures are modified accordingly -- and sometimes the frequency standards for these procedures are modified, as well.

The nomenclature…… [Read More]

diversity of learning styles and needs represented in a typical 21st century classroom. As the United States continues to see an increase in multi-ethnic, multinational populations, the children of immigrants that bring diverse cultures and ethnicities to American shores are represented in the classroom. This presents a serious challenge for the educator, since the diversity of students reflect a wide range of competencies, skills and levels of intellectual comprehension. Within the context of that diversity the instructor must embrace a pivotal 21st century learning challenge -- meeting the learning needs of students who may fall behind without one-on-one instruction and the learning needs of more advanced students seeking to surge ahead while many students in the classroom may be struggling simply to stay up with the assignments.

To answer this question, first we have to understand the meaning of gender. While sex refers to the biological differences between males and females, gender refers to the sociological differences between males and females. Gender however can be influenced by biological differences but it basically is a social phenomena. Gender differences can vary in different cultures and societies. For e.g. most of the females work in the U.S. But many women in Asian countries do not go to work. So if women and men were classified on basis of going to work, then women in U.S. would be very different from women in the Asian countries.

Presently, in the UK, only Approved Driving Instructors (ADI) is permitted to charge for providing car-driving instruction (with the exception of partially qualified, would-be ADIs who hold a Trainee License). The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) continues a Register of ADIs.

Contract Learning Is a Form of Learning

Words: 2143 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 52382851

Contract learning is a form of learning (and teaching) that involves the student or mentee far more than usual in the formulation of assignments and curriculum. The teacher and student work together to come up with a series of assignments that the student agrees to complete, thus tailoring the course to their specific needs while giving them more motivation to complete the assigned tasks. Like any (relatively) recent development in education, contract learning has its supporters and detractors, and is likely not useful in every situation. However, contract learning has been successfully deployed in the nursing field, because it allows nurses and nurses-in-training to organize their own learning regimens and tailor their experience to their own learning needs. By examining critical literature regarding the function and success of contract learning, especially as it relates to nursing, it will become clear that contract learning is a highly effective form of learning…… [Read More]

Privatization of Prisons

Furthermore, even the goal of preventing recidivism (and crime rates in general) conflict with the profit motive of any industry whose demand is measured by the numbers of criminals convicted and sentenced to terms of incarceration.

Conclusion:

Prison privatization has increased in the last few decades in the U.S. Its proponents believe that privatizing prisons will reduce the financial strain on government authorities in connection with maintaining correctional services. Critics are extremely wary of any transition to for-profit business models in the realm of corrections, primarily because of the tremendous potential for inherent conflicts of interests. Ultimately, the best approach might be a hybrid format where private entities supplement government authorities, but subject to appropriate legislative guidelines and oversight mechanisms sufficient to ensure that industry standards and integrity are not compromised the way they might be under unrestricted privatization policies.

Teaching of Writing to Students

Words: 1289 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 10866889

I don't grade the final draft in class, as I need more time to carefully read it and give it a rubric score (TIMELINE (http://www.kimskorner4teachertalk.com/writing/writingprocess/timeline.)"

This is a valuable aspect of the writing timeline that the teacher has developed. It provides the student with the ability to earn points on having excellent ideas and content even if the grammar and spelling is not up to par.

For many students the fear of writing begins when they turn in something they worked hard to produce and thought they had a wonderful writing idea, only to have it returned with red marks all over it for grammar errors.

Grammar and punctuation are very important elements to the lesson of writing, however, one must also consider the ideas and content that were offered as well.

Dividing the grading system into two areas, one for ideas and content and the other for grammar, spelling…… [Read More]

Higher Ed Journal the Use

Words: 1095 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Literature Review Paper #: 21397771

Among the most important findings produced in the results of the research, Langer conjectures that "the results of this research suggest that non-traditional adult students can find it difficult to understand what is meant by reflection and how it applies to their practical goals of changing careers. These students do not have a natural or traditional association with the journal process itself, as has been suggested, more or less, in much of the literature on learning journals." (p. 349-350)

Strengths & eaknesses:

Perhaps the greatest strength of the research conducted by Langer is its selected subject matter. The learning journal is indeed a compelling notion, particularly insofar as it appears to provide a practical contrast to the use of grading as the only tool for student assessment. In this regard, the research is to be commended for seeking to add to the discussion another set of findings justifying the use…… [Read More]

Political Economy Calculations Between Costs and Benefits

Words: 863 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 8772463

grades were determined on a curve, I would work very hard to try to be in the top 5% of the class. However, my view of that grading system might be colored by how widely distributed the grades in the class were. If the distribution was narrow, then the curve system would appear to be an arbitrary reflection of the professor's desire to have a certain grade distribution, rather than a reflection of student knowledge. If POL S. 270 was the only class in Political Science that graded on a curve, then all but the strongest performers would avoid the class, which would deflate the grades of those who are traditionally the strongest performers because they would be subject to the curve. If all of the courses in the university were graded on a curve, then the university would experience more drop-outs because of forced-fails. This type of curve system,…… [Read More]

Americans are waiting with anxious anticipation as the federal government attempts to convince the United Nations that a war with Iraq is in order. President Bush as well as Colin Powell have spent days addressing the issue and presenting evidence of the need to forcibly disarm Iraq. As the world watches the events unfold, nations are lining up on one side or the other of the issue. France, Germany and ussia are asking the United States to hold off on an attack and see if a more peaceful solution can be hammered out.

Anlayzing National Cranberry Cooperative

Words: 1043 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 11986484

National Cranberry Cooperative

Analyze and calculate as many costs as you can

There are a number of costs that can be calculated and evaluated in the case study.

Overtime costs

There is a high percentage of overtime hours. This can be calculated as follows:

12,000 / 34,000 x 100%

= 35.3% of the total hours

For instance, in 1980, there are 12,000 overtime hours. The estimated costs are as follows:

The maximum cost incurred is $9.75 x 12,000 = $117,000 for the full year employees

The minimum cost incurred is $6 x 12,000 = $72,000 for the seasonal personnel

Premium costs for the grading system

The grading system encompasses numbers 1, 2A, 2B and 3. There is an unnecessary $0.75 premium costs for number 3. For this number, there are 450,000 barrels but 50% was only for that quality:

Therefore, the costs:

(450,000 x 0.75) x 50%

= $168,750 (Harvard…… [Read More]

High School Improving the Writing

Words: 3793 Length: 12 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 38026582

The author takes a chance bringing a new form of writing to a middle school, a technique that is innovative but not commonplace, thus would give rise to much questioning, which may be an obstacle teacher's would face trying to implement this type of learning style. This learning approaches views all students as independent, thus in an environment where everything is "sterile" or "sterilized and standardized" this type of learning system may receive some objection. By and large however, once educators realize how significant the improvements are among students adopting this method, they are likely to become more compliant and willing to place more effort at implementing this type of program.

The baseline approach used by the researcher to measure improvement is the ability of students to write using their own thinking skills, so they can in theory, teach others about writing. This is difficult to do, because this learning…… [Read More]

Persistent Disability Associated With Ankle Sprains A

Words: 757 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 24538745

Persistent Disability Associated with Ankle Sprains: A Prospective Examination of an Athletic Population," by Gerber, et. al., published in Foot & Ankle International in 1998. The study was carried out at the United States Military Academy (West Point). This is a specialized population consisting of young, athletic men and women, but other studies have documented the prevalence of ankle sprains across populations (p. 653).

This study has significant significance to the study of podiatric practice. As the researchers point out, >40% of patients have chronic complaints about the injured ankles after treatment (p. 654). The study is timely. The results showed that we need more information about the treatment and rehabilitation of ankle sprains because careful, planned care during the first six months were "critical to achieving an acceptable long-term outcome" (p. 659, "Outcomes" section.)

The study has great utility for podiatrists because it demonstrates the need for rehabilitation of…… [Read More]

On the other hand, one way of guarding against punishment is to reward for good behavior. Religious organizations are proponents of this notion that there is a reward for good deeds. Most of the religions believe in glorious life in paradise after death as a reward for good deeds while still alive. This has greatly resulted to reduced criminal and sinful activity within religious communities.

EMR Implementation in Saudi Arabian Hospital

Words: 3240 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Conclusion Chapter Paper #: 93931226

King Khalid University Hospital implemented a new system called The Electronic System for integrated Health Information or E-SIHI. The results from the data for clinical documentation before the implementation of E-SIHI revealed the most documentation when it came to 'physical examinations' in relation to ICU and OB/BYN. However, in Medicine and Surgery, there were low percentages for clinical documentation with Medicine at 35% and Surgery at 43%. The data revealed across the board both Medicine and Surgery had low clinical documentation with the lowest standing at 18% for Surgery in the 'assessment' area.

A 2013 update review demonstrated hospitals had little clinical documentation for complications associated with esophagectomy. Meaning assessment of complications, reactions to medicine, length of stay, and postoperative quality of life were not performed. This had to with a lack of a standard system for monitoring and documentation. The review recommended newer assessment tools to allow better monitoring…… [Read More]
