edit of Smithers proposal
Public description of your project?
The Aboriginal Healing Foundation was thus established in 1998, originally with an eleven-year mandate scheduled to expire on March 31, 2009. This time frame reflected the original establishment of the foundation as part of a governmental policy of restitution for past abuse and its intergenerational effects: it was supposed that the conditions and the psychological welfare of the affected portion of the population could be substantially ameliorated within that specific time frame, but also reflected a sense that the original population for whom the funds represented a form of reparation were already dying. Unfortunately, problems like alcoholism tend to linger on well beyond the initial policies of abuse and neglect -- for this was official government policy, for which the Aboriginal community would receive official federal redress -- and it is for this reason we turn to the Smithers Foundation: the…
Pre-Employment Screening Procedures
Mr Jonathan Lucas Jessop (Director)
From: Ms Kaylinn Elizabeth Jackson (Recruiter and Personnel Manager)
Re: he Importance of Effective Pre-Employment Screening at I People.
Dear Mr. Jessop
Nobody knows better than you and I the challenges we face today in terms of personnel recruitment and retention. Indeed, today's demographic, economic, and technological developments have created a recruitment base fraught not only with opportunities, but also with challenges. It is far easier today for potential employees to manufacture any information, ranging from the personal to the professional. For this reason, it is vital that we, especially in the I industry, weed out such fraudulent applications to ensure that we employ the best persons from our pool of applicants.
It is also true that applicants simply omit pertinent information from their applications that might be to the detriment of the company, such as a criminal past or problematic behavior…
The document consists of three parts: 1) A definition and discussion of the nature of pre-employment screening; 2) A list of screening procedures, and 3) Obtaining consent. The document provides good general information about pre-employment screening that any company can apply to its hiring procedures.
Shaker, J.M. (2009). Pre-Employment Screening Methods: How Much Do You Really Want to Know? Ryan, Swanson, & Cleveland, PLLC. Retrieved from: http://www.ryanswansonlaw.com/Documents/Articles/Article%20-%20Pre-Employment%20Screening%20Methods%20 (2009).pdf
On the premise that employers have access to a far wider pool of employees than in the past, the document addresses both benefits and drawbacks of pre-employment screening. Some of the drawbacks include the time and funding expenses involved in some screening procedures; others could be invasive, which might discourage qualified employees from giving consent; screening could result in additional legal liability for employers. After offering information about screening methods, the document concludes by advising that the necessity for certain screening methods match the job for which the employee is hired. Careful analysis is necessary to achieve a good match between screening technique, the type of employee required, and the work to be performed.

eplacing the Current Mode of Commuting by a Share and Own Aircraft
It is true that the executives of Acme manufacturing with the HO at Akron, Ohio are in need of commuting to remote sites at Chicago -- OD, Seattle and Miami -- MIA and is a weekly affair at least for seven executives who have to travel to these satellite locations. The basic problems are that unjustified costs for travel have mounted to $75,000 per month and the executives have to depend on many airlines' schedule. Another $15,000 is thus incurred for travel expenses and there are issues related to productivity. This report is an indicator for a possible solution to this problem. While owning an aircraft entirely for the company may actually be more costly and cumbersome in maintenance and other expenses and the additional salaries to maintenance staff, pilots and fuel, the alternate solution suggested is to…

Healthcare and its rising costs have become a contentious issues within America and abroad. Healthcare costs, unlike other aspects within a developed society are not cyclical. Costs related to healthcare don't move in tandem with economic activity. Instead, as historical trends indicate, it continues to rise as the populations of developed countries become older. The United States is no different in this regard. Healthcare costs as a percentage of GDP continues to rise. The Centers for Medicine and Medicaid Services found that health care spending grow at 5.3% in 2014 to over $3 Trillion. This rise in healthcare spending accounting for over 17% of the United States GDP in 2014. Furthermore, the 5.3% rise is spending far outpaces the 2% to 3% historical rise in GDP.

Grant Proposal to Improve Quality of Care
Nursing fatigue is one of the major factors that affect the quality of care provided by nurses to different patient populations. Studies have demonstrated that nursing fatigue is attributable to various factors including workload, illness, job frustration, and job stress. Nursing fatigue affect the quality of care provided by nurses through generating practice errors that hinder the delivery of high-quality care. Therefore, one of the most important measures to enhance the quality of care for residents living in a nursing facility setting is dealing with nursing fatigue. In this case, this grant proposal is geared towards obtaining funding to improve the quality of care for residents living in a nursing facility setting in relation to nursing fatigue.
Nurses in this nursing facility setting that serves residents are involved in providing round-the-clock care to patients. These professionals provide a wide range of…

Youth Gangs in Schools
In recent years, youth gangs and gang-related violence in schools have highlighted many news reports and is considered to be a rapidly increasing problem for cities and suburban areas.
Youth gangs in schools have become more prevalent, with a record number of students (25%) admitting to knowing someone in a gang, or knowing of a youth gang, or gun possession on school grounds due to youth gang presence (Howell and Lynch 1).
Youth gangs have been around for decades, from the Jets in West Side Story, to recent Hollywood films like Colors, and oyz in the Hood, gangs have been showcased as having an honor system and a feeling of unity. Unfortunately most youths who join gangs suffer from low self-esteem; feel powerless in their own life; and/or feel rejected at home or in school (Toronto School District). Membership in a youth gang gives them a…

The case of Henrietta Lacks and the recommendations therein is a good one. The overall autonomy and fairness to the participants is taken into account. The report notes collection of research cells without the knowledge and consent of the participant is undoubtedly the way to go. Parallels are drawn to the concentration camp experiments from World War II that were conducted on the Jews and the Tuskegee Airmen that were subjected to medical tests including intentionally infecting African-American soldiers with syphilis was deplorable and disgusting and this report rightly points out how vile this activity was. Coming back to Ms. Lacks, harvesting of cells without the consent of Ms. Lacks and a clear quorum of her family also being against it should have necessitated that her cells not be harvested.

"Expanding the limits of lived and written experience: Required Independent Study"
There are certain concepts and ways of presenting ideas that all educated human beings must know. This fundamental assertion about education seems to lie at the heart of the concept of requiring the completion of a core curriculum for all graduating undergraduate students. At very least, the existence of a common core belies the university's desire that all graduates of its institution are versed and knowledgeable in certain basic skills, such as writing a cohesive essay and understanding how to conduct an experiment according to the scientific method.
However, most institutions, including Columbia, also have some other 'agendas' in constructing a common core curriculum, namely that all students and graduates of the institution will be familiar with a certain canon of books and authors that have been quantified over time as 'great literature.' It is with this implicit,…

1. Executive SummarySmart traffic lights are a product innovation designed to help alleviate and mitigate traffic congestion. Traffic congestion is particularly troublesome in large cities as it results to large amounts of productivity loss through various delays. Congestion can also adversely impact the environment as vehicles are in operation much longer that should otherwise be warranted through the use of smart traffic lights. This contributes to higher costs associated with wear and tear on both vehicles and roadway infrastructure.Smart traffic lights are used to help lower congestion by using artificial intelligence and data analytics to proper regulate traffic flow. Through proper regulation of traffic flow, congestion can be reduced allowing for a much more seamless travel and commute experience. In addition, smart traffic lights can help reduce the impact on carbon emissions on the environment by lowering the overall time vehicles are operated on the road (Dhole, 2014).2.

Examine the need in the organization for your proposed change
The change aims at transforming the pharmacy of the organization to avail prescription medication to our clients at reduced cost compared to the existing rates, and invest in the latest technology-based medicines. Complaints have been rife with regard to the high pricing of our medicines compared to the prices offered at other healthcare centers. Therefore, there is need to control the prices of our medicines. The latter intention can be realized with careful maintenance of efficiencies in operations by targeting specified market segments, i.e. the patients who pay for their prescription medicines from their pockets. For instance, we would streamline cash flow disruptions associated with delays in insurance compensation. We can also discontinue unwanted services to the repeat customers who are already knowledgeable and on maintenance medications. Furthermore, if we ensure that the drugs are made with the…

Quality Development in Advanced Practice field knowledge in nursing: Proposal on Enhancing the dental health of children suffering Congenital Heart Disease
One of the most prevalent development abnormalities found in children is heart disease, and it occurs in about 8-10 in every 1, 000 births. Dental supervision of children with congenital heart problems calls for special care, due to their increased susceptibility to contagious endocarditis, which is associated with bacteremia caused by persistent dental processes. Additionally, these patients always have developmental enamel abnormalities that raises caries risk, and always have deprived oral health. This latter condition may be said to be due to cardiac health problems, whose care and attention may lead to the under-estimation of oral health and inadequate consideration. Additionally, continual administration of liquid drugs containing sucrose as sweetener may cause caries and gingivitis cases in children (Andersson et al. 2013a). Dental ailment may cause dental extractions in…

The school programs have been a subject of research, legislation and debate across many states and over many years. There has always been the urge to come up with a harmonized calendar that is suitable for the students, the teachers, the parents as well as the management of the schools. This has always proved to be a delicate balance, one rarely achieved in many institutions. There is need however to have year-round school programs that help in the completion of the needed curriculum, but also friendly to the main stakeholders.
There are factors that must be put into focus and consideration by the relevant persons in building up a program for the educational institutions. The students need to be the first consideration in formulation of the school program. It should give the students significant time to rest and refresh their minds after many months of continuous learning and other academic…

However, while the majority of goods will see an increase in demand when prices decrease, the rate at which demand changes of will vary, and some products may see a faster increase than others (Baye, 2007). Additionally, in a few cases a decreasing price may undermine the value of the product, and may result in a decrease in sales, this is known as a Giffen good (Baye, 2007).

Elasticity is a way of measuring the impact that a change in price will have on the demand for a product, and the revenues which are generated. If Will wants to maximize revenues, he can use the concept of elasticity in order to determine how prices for both the out of copyright and new books should be price.
The calculation of elasticity is relatively simple, if there is some historical data available indicating sales following a price change. Elasticity can be calculated by dividing the percentage change in the demand by the percentage change in the price (Baye, 2007). For example, if there is a 50% decrease in demand following a 50% increase in price the calculation will be -50/50 = -1. In elasticity calculations is it is usual to drop the negative indicator (Baye, 2007). This means that for every 1% increase in price there will be 1% decrease in demand, and conversely for every 1% decrease in price there will be a 1% increase in demand. If this is applied to the sale of movies where he found that when prices decreased from $80 to $20 sales increased by 600% a sample plasticity calculation can be undertaken. In this case plasticity is calculated by dividing 600 by -75, which gives an elasticity of -8, or 8 because the minus indicator is dropped. This means that it was possible to calculate the change in prices, and that for every 1% decrease in prices there would be an 8% increase in sales. Where the increase in demand is greater proportionately than the decrease in price, there will be an overall increase in revenue, where the elasticity is less than one the proportional change in demand will be less than proportional change in the price.
With the case of the films, it was clear that the company was better decreasing prices in order to increase sales. However, the digitized books are a different matter, they are different product, and at the current time they are benefiting from the competitive advantage of diversification, as the technology is patented and Will does not believe that it can
Western Civilization proposal, I would like to research Golda Meir. Meir's life is interesting not only in and of itself, but is also remarkable altogether for its astonishing symbolic associations. Meir shows us (as we perhaps already knew) that the historical bias within Western Civilization that stereotypes women as "the weaker sex" has never really been accurate. There is a long history both mythographically and historically which does permit women a role in both warcraft and statecraft: the Classical tradition offers warrior goddesses such as the Greek Athene and the Roman Bellona, while the Old Testament includes enough vignettes of tough and bloodthirsty women, such as Jael, who assassinates the enemy general Sisera by hammering a tent-peg through his skull. Historically there have been a number of female war leaders as well: Boadicea in Roman-era Britain and Zenobia in the Roman-era Middle East both led successful military uprisings against a…
Other models for the proposed school include increased use of hands-on active learning instead of the traditional reliance on the passive learning-by-lecture model and rote memorization of facts from textbooks.
Technology would be integrated in two specific ways: (1) the use of electronic media and computers to increase interest and learning in traditional academic areas; and (2) with the goal of providing practical training in the use of technology systems and the development of high-tech skills that are necessary for professional success and that also ensure the continued academic success in higher education or immediate employability after high school graduation where appropriate.

Educational institutes are more important than any other organisation in the society because of their influence on the tender minds of the kids. Students consider educational institute as their second home and these institutes establish the psychological foundation of the individuals. At all levels of life, individuals sub-consciously refer to their teachers' views and styles. It is no surprise to mention that at times individuals regard their teachers more than their parents as well.

Achieving fair and equal access to professional development for nurses and healthcare providers in the private sector has been difficult in the past. Education has sometimes been viewed as expensive and time-consuming, with staff release for learning difficult to achieve especially acute staff shortages are a definable obstacle already to effective treatment provision. However, it is vital to the principle of performance improvement and the pursuit of standardizing quality outcomes that healthcare provision be based on the active pursuit of staff excellence. This is to be seen as a far more desirable approach to personnel orientation than the imposition of sanctions for poor performance. Central to this is the need for improvement of the local facility's knowledge economy. To this extent, knowledge…

The qualification of Mr. Thomas will be very valuable for our company both presently and in the future. The education background of the employee is a valuable asset for our company because he has assisted our company to take some investment risks, which have paid off in the long run. The past risky investments that we have undertaken have been largely profitable for our company based on the expert financial advice from Mr. Thomas. Thus, the employee has assisted our company to enjoy higher profitability.
Comparing the current total package of a treasury specialist of our organization to other organizations of the same size, Mr. Thomas is receiving lower salary compared to other treasury specialists of the same level. Based on the aforementioned reasons, I am proposing that we should increase the total package of Mr. Thomas. The table below reveals the recommended new salary package for Mr. Thomas.

Hiring senior staff is essential to developing core leadership within an organization that fulfills the organizations mission and goals and can lead those within the organization to build cohesion and effective internal development. There are arguments within some of these most effective organizations that stress that human capital is the singularly most important factor in growing a successful business as happy employees are more likely than all others to represent the organization well in…

Prospective field agency in social work:
Child, Youth & Family Services Department of the Government of Newfoundland, Canada
My decision to enter the field of social work is directly related to my personal experiences. I am a First Nations person and currently live on a reservation in Newfoundland, Canada. First Nations peoples strive to retain their cultures while still interacting with the rest of Canadian society. I believe that when dealing with problems relating to healthcare, child services, job placement, and other areas with which social workers can be helpful, there must be cultural sensitivity to the perspective of the individual who is being assisted. I believe that growing up as part of a bi-cultural environment will make me uniquely attuned to the needs of my future clients. I grew up with a profound need and belief that I was put on the earth to help people, and…
The topic of the proposal is related to media psychology and reality television. Media psychology is an interdisciplinary field that works in collaboration with fields such as neuroscience, computer science, international relations, and philosophy. Media psychology seeks to understand the perceptions, interpretations, uses, responses, and relationships among media and media consumers. Media psychology identifies both the benefits and the drawbacks of media consumption. Media psychology reads media as a text and as an entity with behaviors, relationships, and cultures. Media psychology receives increasing attention in the 21st century as the media landscape of the times is much more rich, diverse, and abundant than other periods in human history. Media is a much larger fixture in more people's lives around the world in the 21st century. The growing consensus among media critics, researchers, theorists, producers, consumers, and distributors is that media affects human behavior and attitudes. Therefore, the…

he Need for a New Critical Edition of James Joyce's Dubliners
Despite enormous volumes of criticism and scholarship, James Joyce remains one of the most enigmatic writers of the twentieth century. His books have caused great controversy in both the literary and political worlds, as scholars and officials alike attempt to come to an understanding of is true intents and meanings. As with any great writer and/or works of literature, such attempts and the resultant debates will never cease; there is no single correct interpretation or understanding of Joyce's works, just as there is no way to come to a full and complete understanding of the author himself. his is precisely what makes literature both exciting and enduring -- it remains alive throughout the ages, no matter how much time has passed between the act of the literature's creation and a reader's discovery of the text. Each individual…
There have been, however, many new interpretations of both Joyce's life and his works that warrant the publication of a new critical edition of Dubliners. Criticism continues to breathe new life into these stories, and a new edition compiling the past thirteen years' worth of scholarship would be useful to long-time fans of Joyce, new discoverers of his work, and the many students and educators in the academic world who engage in scholarly examinations of his work. Michael Begnal's book Joyce and the City examines the importance of place in Joyce's work, and this certainly has a profound effect on the stories in Dubliners; other scholarship places Joyce and his works more firmly in the canon of colonial and anti-colonial Irish writers than did previous scholarship available at the time the 1996 edition was being collated (McDermott; Powell; Valente; Staley).
Other recent scholarship has focused more explicitly on Dubliners than on Joyce as an author, with some very important new twists on the typical understandings of these stories. Suspicious Readings of Joyce's "Dubliners" by Margot Norris, Sympathy and Joyce's 'Dubliners': Ethical Probing of Reading, Narrative, and Textuality by Tanja Vesala-Varttala, and Rejoycing: New Readings of "Dubliners" by Harold F. Mosher, Jr.; Rosa M. Bollettieri Bosinelli are all recent books dedicated to critical examinations of these works, but they do not provide comprehensive criticism along with the text of Dubliners itself. This is the ultimate goal of a critical edition of any works; it is not merely to provide new scholarly and critical commentary, but to do so in a manner that is at once engaging and elucidating for any reader, scholarly or otherwise, of James Joyce's works.
The works of scholarship and criticism mentioned here are only a representative sample of the amount of new material written about Joyce and his Dubliners since the 1996 Viking edition of the stories was published, but they in and of themselves still warrant the creation and publication of a new edition. The creation of new criticism is only one part of keeping Joyce alive in the minds and hearts of readers, both in academia and in the wider world. It is also necessary for this new criticism to be accurately and meaningfully compiled and disseminated in a manner at once approachable and challenging to readers. The publication of a new critical edition of James Joyce's Dubliners will accomplish just that.

There would be a small cost to print the posters in each unit, but nothing extravagant. In order to promote the implementation, the department reporting the least amount of needle sticks per month would be given a small reward such as a free department lunch or movie tickets.
The program can be evaluated by the number of needle stick injuries reported. The nurses will have to be trusted to actually report an injury should one occur. If the number is consistently lowered, the plan is successful. Also, if the number of injuries continues to go down then that means that the perception of needle stick injuries is no longer viewed as an injury that is of little importance. Once the nurses adapt to the seriousness that a needle stick injury can cause, they will be more apt to prevent such injuries. This will result in a win-win situation for not…

Fastpack has an impressive, solid position on the uritanian courier market. The company does not necessarily need to be acquired by TNT. In my opinion, Fastpack would have more to gain if it were not acquired by TNT. Fastpack has a market share base on the international market that the company can further exploit and expand, leading to overall growth for the company, both locally and internationally.
TNT however, needs to acquire Fastpack. As mentioned above, it is quite difficult for foreign companies to enter the uritanian courier market. The best way of succeeding would be to acquire a well-known local company. Therefore, it might be a better solution for both companies, and especially for Fastpack, to decide upon a merger between the two companies rather than on an acquisition of Fastpack by TNT.

The system can also detect activities that are below the standards of the organization because they are automated. This ensures that activities that affect organizational performance, for example, employee performance are corrected in time before great losses are incurred. Most importantly, an upgraded computer system is necessarily for the managerial team to access information on time.
This implies that the management knows of every change that occurs and can keep track of the organization's position amongst its competitors, therefore, doing everything in their position to maintain the position or raise the organization's position in the bar. The process of ensuring the upgraded computer system is in place requires collaboration from all the employees of the organization to ensure its success.

Totals costs for the CT scan equipment are $1.1 million ($500,000 variable costs from $500 per patient and $600,000 fixed cost for insurance and equipment leases) while revenue for year one is only $950,000 (from per visit payments of $950 per patient). One thousand patients are expected in year one of operation. The initial cost of investment for Proposal 2 was $50,000 putting the total budget deficit for Proposal 2,-year 1 at $200,000.

(Jordans, 2008) "Europe's unilateral approach will only lead to legal battles and trade wars," Bisignani also stressed. (Jordans, 2008) a hint of this contention occurring in the future was evidenced recently when 27 nations, including the U.S., China and 25 other countries, registered opposition to the EU's attempt to include commercial airlines in its cap-and-trade program by supporting an ICAO-run program. This signal confirmed united opposition to the European Union's intentions to develop a separate, regional emissions trading system. U.S. officials warn that the inclusion of U.S. And other non-European airlines in the EU cap-and-trade program "may break international aviation and trade laws." (Jordans, 2008) Although reasons differ, along with official warnings, scientists raise questions regarding the European program. Airlines, experts basically agree, contribute approximately 2% of man-made emissions of carbon dioxide, a gas reportedly contributing to global warming. Perceptions, nevertheless, differ regarding the impact of other gases aircraft emit,…

It is imperative that the proposal writer makes certain the proposal is a good fit for the funding organization. There are many worthwhile causes in the world and even the richest foundations fund only a relatively few. For best results, writers will help develop proposals that align closely with the funder's mission. Writers should look at the mission of their own organization, and consider its objectives, goals and strategic tasks as they seek funders. Successful proposals match projects to an organization's mission as well as match them to a grantor's mission. It usually does not work to create a proposal just for the sake of applying for a grant. eaders of proposals will have difficulty in justifying funding when the missions of grantor and grantee are too far apart.

The educational system up to this point, very likely to continue in the future, has swung back and forth between these two philosophies (individualist and essentialist) in a pendulum effect, as educators seek to engender interest for knowledge in the student.

Re: "Feasibility of developing an intranet" (Planning Proposal)
Our company is an internationally-based company that is extremely spread out geographically, and even on an internal level, in its architectural structure. Managers often wish to communicate efficiently and confidentially amongst themselves regarding the performance of other members of the staff. However, at present, this is difficult to accomplish. Of course the company could build a new physical structure to accommodate needs for better face-to-face connectivity amongst individuals, but another and less expensive potential solution exists, that of the development of an in-house intranet, or online connectivity structure.
Why an intranet? Why not simply make use of the World Wide Web, given currently existing corporate computer structures allow for such connections? The establishment of an intranet would automatically give an additional level of secrecy and protection from…

Sealed bids vs. Competitive proposal
Chapter 6 of the Federal Acquisition egulations states that contracting officers are only allowed to solicit sealed bids when time allows for solicitation, submission, and evaluation of the sealed bids (Justia Law, 2012). Contracting officers are under strict instruction to only make an award on the basis of the price. Besides, the law compels the contracting officers not to engage in any form of discussion with the offerors about their bids. Other forms of acquisition give relative importance to cost or price as opposed to sealed bidding where an award is made on the basis of price and price related factors. In a situation where a contractor is offering goods and services which are clearly defined, where discussions are not a requisite, and the selection process probably factors in price and price related factors, then it is imperative that the contractor synthesizes the rules and…

Proposal for Study: Is society causing biracial children to struggle with their identity?
hen forming their identity, children seek to look, act, feel, and mimic significant people in their social environment. "In his book Youth and Identity, Erickson relates ego identity and self-esteem to racial identity. He states that ambiguous messages about one's race may place a person at risk for developing what he referred to as a 'negative identity'" (Oka, 1994, p. 3). The possibility of negative identity is a controversial topic regarding biracial children. Opponents of interracial marriage argue that interracial couples are jeopardizing the futures of their children, as there is a possibility that biracial children will not be accepted by either culture and this rejection will lead to personal problems.
Some studies have found that it is more likely for interracial children to experience difficulties related to a poor self-identity, such as gender confusion,…

P proposal for revitalizing the public image of United Airlines. It has 9 sources.
The airline industry has always been susceptible to terrorist events such as hijacks. Depending upon the magnitude of the terrorist act, the airlines functioning in the industry are pointed fingers at for having an infrastructure allowing a breach in security. A relatively small event of an airline being hijacked may only target the particular airline for blame. However, a terrorist event with magnitude as great as September 11, the whole airline industry functioning is targeted for blame. Therefore it is the responsibility of the airlines functioning in the country to coordinate efforts, resources and programs in order to implement a greater level of security of passengers. Provisions to eliminate the probability of terrorist activities must be made by each airline in the industry.
The aforementioned are the tangible provisions airlines must introduce to counter the tangible…

Financial Proposal: Dorchester, Ltd.
As discussed in earlier papers, for Dorchester, the final decision as to which particular nation to invest in is dependent on a range of distinct scenarios; these factors naturally impact the selected acquisition target. Before the acquisition target is selected, the nation which houses the potential acquisition target needs to be scrutinized closely. For instance, the trade environment of the nation where the prospective acquisition is located needs to be assessed, since this factor will impact the cost and ability to engage in trade. The political environment of the nation where the prospective target resides is also a crucial factor that needs to be examined closely. No potential targets exist in peaceful vacuums; rather all the prospective nations looked at during this course have some element of political risk attached to them. Furthermore, as discussed during earlier assignments, it's been found that political stability of a…

Even in the purported technology rich Asian countries, women are still in need of special attention with regard to technology access and organization. Without such address Lui argues that the feminist agenda will falter and that real change will not be achieved until access is equal. (Lui, 2004)
As an aside, the gender that is most often associated with a strongly developed social skill surrounding multitasking, the internet as a structure should be more easily understood than almost any other modern structure, by women. The system is a vast spiderweb (that may even be to structured an analogy) of interconnected items and resources that are more multifaceted and fantastic than any one could completely understand in a short time. Internet skills are therefore, forgive the pun, hardwired into our gendered skill set and should be embraced rather than feared. Interestingly enough, this may even become a greater common ground between…

The guided practice is designed for the student to complete on his own without assistance from adults. However, library personnel will be trained in the tutorial in order to assist students who may have questions.The guided computer-mediated instruction mentioned above will end with a self guided section in which students will take short quizzes pertaining to the specific information learned through guided practice. This will encourage the students to become more confident and independent in knowing and understanding the new information.

Two ethics proposals: Diversity consideration
This organization is an EEOC-compliant employer and strives to incorporate diversity into its hiring practices and general worldview. Diversity is an important, stated goal for the organization and is a factor that is taken under consideration when making hiring decisions. The organization takes an active role in recruiting from colleges with substantial minority populations and its promotional literature paints an inclusive portrait of the organization, visually and verbally.
However, one problem with our organization is that while it has a strong record in recruiting minority candidates, it is lacking in terms of its capacity to retain them. This means at the upper levels of management, minority candidates are not represented in the corporate hierarchy. This creates, to some…

The project will be a research paper that analyses the future demand of OPEC oil. In the research, the uncertainty range will be analyzed and researched. There is a continuous growth of energy needs globally, while the oil prospects and gas production are declining. This gives a negative outlook as the energy demands will outweigh its production. The limited amount of oil found globally is an issue that is been discussed widely, which makes oil a valuable resource. The organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) controls majority of the world's oil, which is produced by its member states.
There are many uncertainties affecting the supply of oil by OPEC members. Currently instability and tensions affecting some countries have led to disruptions in…

To the Facilities Director of De Anza College
While the recently completed multimillion dollar facilities expansion project has undoubtedly increased De Anza College's regional influence and enhanced the institution's ability to attract quality students, in our breathless rush towards progress certain public safety measures have been neglected. The completion of the Off-Campus Dorm unit has undoubtedly enabled a greater number of upperclassmen to make the campus area of Cupertino their home, however, the location of this residence hall may result in unnecessary injuries or deaths due to traffic collisions. Because the Off-Campus Dorm is situated north of Stevens Creek Boulevard, one of the city's more heavily trafficked eight-lane thoroughfares, a significant number of students are now forced to cross this busy street during their daily commutes from dorm to campus.
Although the intersection currently contains a crosswalk to facilitate pedestrian movement, we contend that this crosswalk…

With the guarantee of $60,000 for next year from the community churches, the New Youth Center is challenged with the task of raising the additional $300,000. $150,000 is expected to be received from within the business community. The reasons behind this belief are based on the fact that the center can also support the business objectives of contributors by improving their market perception within the community or creating tax deduction opportunities. The next $100,000 is expected to be donated by not-for-profit organizations which militate for the proper integration of youth, as well as for responsible citizenship and environmental protection. Due to the center's triple actions, it is expected that several NGOs participate to raising the necessary funds. Finally, the last $50,000 is to be raised from individual members of the community, such as parents or other people who get a sense of personal fulfillment…

It should also capture the forms signed by patients and guardians regarding disclosure of names so that they might be accessed (GDPH, 2011).
In accordance with Federal and state law, the system must be HIPAA compliant to protect patient information (GDPH, 2011). Therefore, it must use HL7, (GDPH, 2011) since HL7 is the "[…] national standard protocol identified by the CDC to meet HIPAA communications privacy and security requirements." It should also be password protected, have a regular backup set in place and capable of accessing GRITS via VPN, as GRITS requires (GDPH, 2011).
Aside from these requirements, it should be flexible so that additional fields or code-systems/languages can be added in a timely and cost-effective manner (Issel, 2011). It should be easy to learn and use (Issel, 2011). It should also be capable of providing reminders for patients who need vaccinations, printable outputs, preferably in table format and individual…
