Learning Organization

Personalized learning is achieved through coaching conversations. The generalized approach has fast lost application in modern day. Coaching helps individuals take responsibility for their own career development (Mavin, Lee, & Robson, 2010). Any successful learning organization should embrace a supportive culture. For instance, organizations that focus most of their energies on customer satisfaction are likely to achieve great customer service training feats. In an organization where teamwork is emphasized, shared learning experiences are likely to be witnessed (Mavin, Lee, & Robson, 2010). A successful learning organization can be achieved by use of two types of organizations. Firstly, it is… Continue Reading...

Quantitative Research

your answer. (2) Response: The study findings are valid only as far as their application to a cluster of ovarian cancer-diagnosed females who receive superior-quality treatment. Furthermore, the sample comprises of a small, highly-educated cluster of survivors of ovarian cancer with a likelihood of being better off compared to other survivors. Therefore, this research work's findings may only be generalized to a cluster of patients with similar characteristics, as other variable factors not taken into account in the research may impact its findings. Implications/Recommendations How did the researcher generalize the findings? Where in nursing can the results be applied? (4) Response:… Continue Reading...

Liberation Theology Meets Humankind Embrace

to be conducted in liberative, humanizing change's interests. This assumed the shape of the social scientific model's application, particularly that of Marx's sociological examination of class-based fights for liberation. However, at this juncture, it would be right to highlight the fact that the model's fundamental philosophical ground is that process (or becoming) forms the basic mode of a created being; further, thought represents a type of becoming/being, which aids the general development of humanity, history, and civilization. But liberation theology, indeed, has another philosophical approach to interpretation which is, in broad terms, an 'existentialist' philosophical stance. This has served… Continue Reading...

Organizational or Systemic Change

or systemic change. Why are these interventions important to consider when implementing change? Strategic Intervention Leadership application: Pucko and Cater (2010) claim that although a well-designed strategy, human resources, and an effective and sound competency pool, are highly vital to the success of a strategy, ineffective leadership forms a key barrier to effective implementation. The executive board and Chief Executive should concentrate on the numerous organizational interfaces. One of the main challenges to effective execution of organizational strategy is guaranteeing workforce buy-in as well as channelling their business understanding and capabilities towards corporate change. Thus, effective leadership is the most important… Continue Reading...

Workplace Behavior and Improvements

Professional Demeanor and Interaction Skills are the best While human physiology's high receptiveness to positive socializing is an established fact, this discovery's significance in the organizational context has remained largely unexamined. I can cite two personal examples in a corporate setting (dealing with meeting and socialization practices) for demonstrating the way the relationship between physiology and positive socializing facilitates fresh hypothesizing with regard to the impact of organizational contexts (practice patterns, in this instance) on physiological resourcefulness of personnel via positive socializing. For instance, some firms' socialization endeavors take the form of routine rotation of employees across different departments (EMILY… Continue Reading...

Consider the Lobster by David Foster Wallace

Wallace's Lobster The purpose of David Foster Wallace's "Consider the Lobster" is to draw attention to a gourmet favorite -- lobster -- while attending a Lobster Fest. His intention is not just to highlight how the world loves to eat lobster but also to raise a moral/ethical conundrum associated with modern eating habits -- that is, the agribusiness of killing animals that we might devour them. Wallace admits that his own personal opinion is to view animals as "less morally important than human beings" but that this should not prevent others from sharing their views, whether they agree or disagree… Continue Reading...

Meanwhile, other scholars claim the above conditions must also cover a minimum working age (prevention of child labor), free association (this includes the right of organization and collective bargaining when negotiating contracts) and equal pay to female workers for the same post and other nondiscrimination requirements. Pharmacare's Colberia manufacturing unit needs to incorporate the above rights. Environmental Initiative… Continue Reading...

Minimum Literacy Skills in the 21st Century

extremely advantageous to have and internalize for future use and application. Conclusion Learning the needed skills of the 21st century is just as much as self-awareness and self-development to people that will not be entering STEM career fields or anything else like it. Indeed, people need to have awareness of all important things including themselves, their culture, the culture of others, the increasingly global nature of the world, the ramping up and improvement of technology, civics/government and so forth. Even those that espouse the tenets of negative liberty and the right to just live their life, people need to… Continue Reading...

Discrimination should therefore be examined in the context it occurs (Maria del Carmen, Mevan Jayasinghe, & Jenna R. Pieper, 2015). Relative deprivation theory argues that feelings of individuals on being denied something are pegged on fair treatment standards, which are informed by the particular context of the action. According to the theory, for someone to… Continue Reading...

The above activity will boost interest in opportunities unfolding from OSS, making the discussion of OSS's potential application in e-governance relevant as well as economically profitable. On the other hand, Fitzgerald et al. (2011) argues that the educational field's digitization is a fairly novel occurrence, which has effectively transformed the entire sector. Educational institutions and businesses have teamed up to further examine academic digitization's potential, via virtual universities, education… Continue Reading...

Diversity As a Reflection Of Your Identity

Dimensions of Identity at Work There are numerous dimensions that reflect one's identity, and which reflect the identity of the author of this document. These dimensions encompass both the primary and the secondary realms of factors that pertain to diversity. These two realms are unequivocally "important to distinguish" (Loden and Rosener, 1991, p. 18) One can actually argue that many of the primary factors supersede the secondary ones in numerous cases -- or perhaps augment them so much that they render the latter almost subservient to the former. As such, the author believes that the five dimensions that are best… Continue Reading...

The Best Approach to Human Resources

HR Shared Services When it comes to the craft and practice of human resources, one of the unmistakable trends that is emerging and changing the face and shape of the work field is the use of a "shared services" framework. Something that is common and inherent to these shared services frameworks is a passionate mission and vision behind the department and how precisely their iteration of human resources will be used to assist and empower the organization via the effective utilization of human resources practices and procedures. This may come off as navel-gazing and self-aggrandizing corporate speak to many people.… Continue Reading...

The application of that power transcends purposes, which helps to provide a degree of utility for Ikeji masquerades. That utility spans funeral purposes, as well as those for simply communicating with one's ancestors. Masquerades can involve displays of power that help to connect the tribespeople to their forebears.

Etherneting

Etherneting Computer networks form a vital component of not only contemporary enterprises, but of 21st-century homes, as well. Networks allow one's personal computer (PC) to get connected to the Internet, enabling one to check one's e-mails, engage in teleconferencing, or update one's webpage/website. Additionally, a user is able to locally communicate with the rest of the devices on that local network. It is easy to create a network -- all one has to do is connect a router to one's device using Ethernet cables. This, though, is the most basic part of network setup. There are other components necessary for… Continue Reading...

perceived Enron management as aggressive and talented for the application of the cutting edge innovative business model. In 1990, the Enron stock price was $7 and increased to $83 in 2000. However, the company recorded its substantial increase in the stock price in 1997. In 2000, Enron stocks 'outperformed the U.S. NASDAQ composite index, and Enron footprint was everywhere in North America. Despite the success of Enron in the 1990s, the company's reputation was shattered after 2000 forcing many of the Enron's executives to leave the company.

Sexuality and Gender at Work

themselves and that should never be applied by others unless that individual welcomes its application. To apply such terms to individuals who do not welcome them is to misstep in the direction of discrimination. It is important that everyone be treated equally and that no one be looked at differently just because of one's gender identity or one's sexuality. That is what this chapter helped me to realize. However, at the same time, it also taught me that these terms can indicate that there are issues that need to be better understood still -- such as what it means… Continue Reading...

Court Case Review in Re Winship

Winship was decided by the Burger Court in 1970, Docket number 778. The case involves a twelve-year-old boy, Samuel Winship, who was arrested for stealing $112 from a woman's locker. Section 744(b) of the New York Family Court Act provided that determination of a juvenile's guilt differs from an adult defendant, requiring only a "preponderance of evidence" and not evidence "beyond a reasonable doubt." Based on the "preponderance of evidence" clause, the Family Court initially found Winship guilty, "despite acknowledging that the evidence did not establish his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt," ("In Re Winship"). Winship appealed, and the appeal… Continue Reading...

Challenges Of Nigerian Writers in English

the foreign tongue they use must equally take note of the engagement in oral sources despite their creative application of this data, thus revealing that Nigerian authors use oral tradition as a means to extend tradition as well as integrate chosen style, medium and form for superior artistic effects. In my opinion, reading and appreciating their works is the least we can do for these authors, as it would make them see that someone acknowledges their worth. I feel the global reading community must participate and help the nation realize its literary and developmental visions (Taye Awoyemi-Arayela, 2013). Self-help… Continue Reading...

The Things They Carried by Tim O’brien

It is a hotly contested idea that just one war-themed book can adequately discuss the topic of Vietnam, and this idea is properly portrayed in this book. Fellow authors like Renny Christopher have condemned Tim O'Brien's story for paying more attention to the misery of the American soldiers and less interest in the Vietnamese. However, the core of "The Things They Carried," O'Brien's work is distinct. Another author, Heberle, who wrote "A Trauma Artist," based his work on how aggression has impacted on American politics, society and culture. Similarly, O'Brien's work also focuses on the distressing experiences endured by the… Continue Reading...

Logical Fallacies and Criminal Justice

esteem by the speaker's audience. The argument is an obvious contradiction of the application of ad hominem. Under the abusive context, proponents of ad hominem links the arguments of the proponents with certain negative values, exclusively the opponent's weak character traits and negative attributes. The ad populum, on the other hand, links the conclusions postulated by the proponents with certain positive values. Both the former and latter are flawed logically: just the same way an identified liar can present a very valid argument, it is possible that the generally accepted argument is invalid, and the generally accepted value not… Continue Reading...

Marx, Weber, Bourdieu, and Gramsci

Internet, wherein power is decentralized and individualized, the classical theories of cultural power have varying degrees of application. The Marxist theory still applies in some form because it is only thanks to the individual efforts of laborers who disseminate information on the Internet that a new media has been able to be achieved: the collective efforts of users of the Internet have given it a basis of power. Weber's theory however has less application, as the Internet is a direct blow to the centralization that his theory envisions. Gramsci's view of cultural power as having a political basis is… Continue Reading...

Sigmund Freud & the Human Condition

Nature: Child Development, Drives, the Unconscious and Mental Determinism. The main idea in Freud's theory of human nature revolves around application of determinism to psychology. In effect, it appears to imply that humans do not possess the free will, no wonder that Freud was not very sure about the philosophical question. He thought that biological and psychological drives were critical to determining the content of unconsciousness. He also believed that human beings are capable of making rational judgments and decisions. This is similar to one of the Marx's ideologies, even though Marx believed that social and economic concerns were the… Continue Reading...

Strategic Plan

The technology market is one of the most competitive landscapes. Without constant innovation and introduction of new products, it may be quite difficult for technology firms to thrive in the long run. Nevertheless, introducing a new product presents a significant moment for an organization as shifts in strategy, organizational structure, business units, and processes are often involved (Hill & Jones, 2012). Accordingly, the process must be carefully managed to ensure the desired outcomes are achieved, especially in terms of stakeholder involvement and communication (Thompson & Martin, 2010). These two aspects will be particularly important as Tex Technologies Limited (Tex) introduces… Continue Reading...

Consequently, he sued the District of Columbia on the premise that the provisions of this Code violated the Second Amendment. Heller argued that the Second Amendment granted an individual the right to bear arms and the requirement for registration of handguns, prohibition on guns in the home without a registration certificate, and requiring trigger-locks for legitimate guns in the home violated the amendment. The lawsuit was dismissed by the district court but reversed by the District of Columbia Circuit on… Continue Reading...

12 Angry Men Prejudice Vs Justice

too detached from responsibility, from civic duty, from serious application of the mind to reality. There is a reason why violence -- such as that depicted in the court case -- happens: reason has given over to emotion and self-interest, and that eventually leads to violent conflict. Thus, the case that the jurors argue becomes in itself a symbol of the American problem: a just and civil society cannot exist if reason is sleeping and passion is reigning supreme. Violence will land individuals in court and passionate prejudice and self-interest will blind jurors to facts and reality and allow… Continue Reading...

Emotional Labour and Gendered Occupational Segregation

Emotional labour is a common phenomenon, especially in service industries. Broadly speaking, emotional labour means that an individual at the workplace displays positive or organisationally-acceptable emotions regardless of their true emotional state (Hochschild, 1983). When interacting with customers, for instance, a customer service employee is required to treat customers with empathy, kindness, and calmness irrespective of how the employee is feeling or how the customer behaves or talks. Portraying negative emotions such as anger, frustration, and hostility would potentially injure the reputation of the organisation or negatively affect customer confidence in the organisation. Fundamentally, emotional labour means that while at… Continue Reading...

Fake News and Knowledge Is Power

However, power is only effective if it is used to combat misinformation and "alternative facts." The real application of the knowledge-power connection is in the realm of public life, where knowledge needs to become normative again to combat the dumbing down of America. America is less powerful when it denigrates science, celebrates superstition, and denies the efficacy of academic inquiry. Knowledge did unfortunately lead to the rise of President Trump and the empowerment of a cohort of anti-intellectual Americans but that does not mean that knowledge is not powerful; it just means that the powerful do not always possess knowledge.… Continue Reading...

is because, for instance, the skeptical inferences made by Hume emanate from the application of the theory of meaning. If the customary notions of causality and personal identity are to hold meaning, it is imperative to have the ability to mark out such ideas to some impression. In particular, Hume does not entirely repudiate the notion of essential connection and causality. However, Hume does repudiate the customary notion of it being something like a main quality within objects themselves. As an alternative, he recommends that essential connection is similar to a minor quality that we onlookers carry out onto… Continue Reading...

Cognition and Learning

good example is the observation of increased information retaining when learning is immediately followed by the application of stimulation (Kurtz et al., 2015). An ambience of high arousal which enhances learning may be created by face-to-face teaching. The Skin Conductance Response (SCR) amplitude which is an arousal indicator is continuously adjusted while facial expressions are being observed in archetypal developing children and happy and sad faces are correlated to the greatest SCR amplitude. A likely explanation is that arousal is improved by emotional facial expressions at important stages of learning, and it enhances retention of information acquired. iii. Learning… Continue Reading...

Classroom Observation

Introduction It is easy to assume that a comprehensive decision making theory gives a reliable basis for an observation scheme for a classroom. However, it is apparent that even though the practical and theoretical ventures overlap in many respects the core of the theoretical tenets are fundamentally variant. They are broader in some respects and narrow in others. The deterrents of real time implementation are significant and thus the scheme of analysis is fundamentally different from the theory frames that led to (Schoenfeld, 2013. At the onset, I believed that teaching was about spending 8 hours teaching and having a… Continue Reading...

21st Century Skills and Competencies

utilized in order to facilitate leaders who operate according to this assumption: transformational leadership, confrontational leadership, the application of emotional intelligence, etc. Another trend in leadership today is the concept of self-management. This is a type of leadership that puts the onus of development on the individual (Yukl, 2010). This style is also one that underscores essentially all styles of leadership because if the individual self is not oriented towards betterment, empowerment, and achievement of goals through the overcoming of obstacles, then the individual will never be useful for an organization. At some point, self-management has to kick in… Continue Reading...

Marbury V Madison Impact

authority to give writs of mandamus. For this reason, Marbury was denied his writ application. In order for this decision to be made, the Chief Justice made a judicial review argument (which is still famous today), although then, the practice had a different name. In short, this argument stated that it was legitimate for the Court's authority to deny the enforcement of a statutory law contradicting the Constitution. This was with regard to the foundation of the Constitution in popular authority, which gave it supreme authority over ordinary statutes. Additionally, the Constitution, which was in writing, created three government… Continue Reading...

Left Brain Right Brain Worldview and Doctoral Programs

restrictive and excessively linear, the professional PhD tracts ideally blend right and left brain visions. The application of quantitative data analyses to real world problems reflects the logical functions of the left brain, while the expanded worldview of the professional practitioner who understands the value of applying academia to the real world appeals to the right brain. Because my worldview combines both left and right brain worldviews, the professional PhD program fits in well with my goals. References Boud, D., & Tennant, M. (2006).

Although widely adopted throughout the United States, eight states have rejected Common Core standards as being inappropriate for their students, meaning that even this worthwhile initiative has failed to completely address the fundamental problem of teaching to the test and its adverse effects on long-term learning nationwide (Standards in your state, 2017). Conclusion The research showed that over the past 30 years, the use of standardized testing regimes in the nation's… Continue Reading...

Nonetheless, a lessee might choose not to undertake the application of recognition requirements to short-term leases, and in its place recognize the lease payment over the term of the lease (PWC, 2017). There are distinctive differences between the two accounting options. First, according to ASC 842, the leases for low-value assets are not exempted. In contrast, IFRS 16 allows the exemption for leases of low-value assets, which are $5,000 or lower when new. Secondly, the two accounting options differ in their accounting models for lessee accounting. In IFRS, a single lease model… Continue Reading...

This application of the law that did not consider Miss Manning's special case has contributed to her frustrations and hence the attempted suicide. Moreover, the length of imprisonment in the sentence she received must have contributed in making Miss Manning desperate to the point of attempted suicide. In my opinion, the court has had a great influence on Miss Manning's frustrations and consequent suicide attempts. I think Miss Manning does not deserve a second prosecution because of the attempted suicide. Any… Continue Reading...

Inclusion Of Evidence Based Practice in Social Work

Social Workers' application of Social Work Evidence-based practice is defined as a process through which a practitioner combines clinical experience with well-research interventions/measures. Evidence-based practice has not only emerged as an important component in the modern healthcare sector but is also increasingly vital in social work practice. The increased significance of evidence-based practice in social work is attributable to the fact that social workers are constantly seeking well-researched studies to obtain information that enhances their knowledge base.

Performance Management and Maslows Hierarchy Of Needs

higher level of performance on the job. Lazaroiu (2015) further supports the universality of motivational theory’s application in performance management systems. His study is based in Europe but follows the same formula as Zameer et al.’s (2014) approach. Lazaroiu (2015) focuses on analyzing motivational determinants, job performance, and factors of behavior that are motivation-oriented. The researcher highlights the evidence of causality between motivation (needs being met) and workplace performance. The more that needs are met, the more workers are motivated to perform well at their jobs. Critical Analysis Critically analyzing the topic of motivational theory’s application to performance management systems… Continue Reading...

Human Theory Of Caring

aspect. Nursing theory allows for one to examine concepts and then attempt practical application of these concepts when theories are tested. Evidence-based practice for example, is the wonderful lovechild of theory and application in that when theories are constructed, they are then tested, and if they work, are applied to standard practice via modification. This essay aims to provide a deeper synthesis of nursing theory by examining two important nursing theories: Orem's Self-care Theory and Watsons Nursing Theory. Additionally, one will see how nursing theory has evolved since its beginnings. Background on Nursing Theory Many say nursing is as… Continue Reading...

The Importance Of Social Media and the Fire Department

The one-size-fits-all approach is not applicable in the context of social networking in corporate firms and workplaces. The advantages of social media are contingent on the type of networking platform, its features, and the organization itself. Since their inception, social networking sites have been known to play a critical role in improving the communication and productivity of compliant firms. In the contemporary society, the fire service also uses mainstream social networking platforms for receiving and disseminating information. The traditional reliance on print media as a source of information has faded away as social media provides an unlimited amount of data… Continue Reading...

The Role Of Roy’s Adaptation Model in Nursing Theory

this end, a PICO question has been formulated: does massage application given to infants born at less than 37 weeks gestation reduce feeding intolerance? Given the increased prominence of theory-based nursing, identifying an applicable nursing framework is important. One model that can be used in addressing the identified problem is Roy’s adaptation model (RAM). Indeed, RAM is one of the most common nursing models. Essentially, the model emphasises patient adaptation to the environment (Saini et al., 2017). As per the model, the nurse focuses on improving the patient’s ability to interact with the adjacent environment. Viewing the individual as… Continue Reading...

Kant and the Question Of Murder

by subjective assertions and therefore lacked credibility as a universal or objective application. For Kant, his philosophical view gradually came to the conclusion that people “attribute to the concept of God” certain moral and religious concepts that do not necessarily derive from God (“Kant’s Philosophy of Religion”). Kant shies away from the idea of faith, viewing it skeptically, from a position opposite of that of, say, Aquinas, who viewed faith as resting upon reason. For Kant, faith does not presuppose reason: Reason presupposes doubt and doubt leads to the questioning of the existence of God—or at least of God… Continue Reading...

Theory Of Motivation and Maslows Hierarchy Of Needs

similarly stated, “when the most prepotent goal is realized, the next higher need emerges,” (p. 370). In application, a person needs to fulfill lower order needs thoroughly before progressing towards the fulfillment of higher needs. The staged process does not preclude cyclical growth and development, but when dysfunction or neurosis has become manifest in an individual, it usually points to the lack of fulfillment of a more fundamental need on the hierarchy. Understanding Maslow’s hierarchy of needs within a general motivation theory framework can be of tremendous benefit to human resources managers in both the public and private sectors.… Continue Reading...

Conflict Resolution Leadership and Teams

I will be able to develop the mobile software application for patient monitoring within the 30-day limit. Plan B My Plan B is to change our team to a virtual team. However, I do not believe this is the best solution. Virtual teams experience less conflict but they may also be far less productive (Thomas & Peterson, 2018). Likewise, I could request that one or the other member of the team be removed but I would not want to resort to this extreme measure. Doing this would also reflect poorly on me as a leader, and might cause me… Continue Reading...

Public Administration and Finance

Economy and U.s. Health Care

Canada. The huge healthcare burden may be attributable to the application of CT (computed tomography) scans, MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging) and the plethora of other such expensive technology that has hit the markets in the course of the past ten years. Some proofs exist of governmental cutbacks on health spending through decreasing provider reimbursement, spending on other economic spheres, and public insurance generosity and entitlement, in addition to increased patient expense sharing. Studies indicate rise in healthcare expenditure may be sustainable only until to a 1 pp gross domestic product and healthcare expenditure growth gap.

Thirdly, measured total value decline is partly an outcome of price cuts, rather than quantity decreases. At one time, first-hand AK-47s’ wholesale rate was roughly 12.5 dollars. In the 90’s, Russians were able to acquire first-hand guns at 30-40 dollars, and Cambodians bought secondhand guns for a mere eight dollars (which was the Ugandan rate per chicken, or the rate… Continue Reading...

Role Of Depression and Medication

Medication adherence is delineated as the magnitude to which patients take medications as recommended by their health-care providers. Correct and accurate adherence to a treatment plan, particularly taking medication on a regular basis and as recommended in the prescriptions is a shared clinical challenge not only for clinicians but patients as well. The population growth of older adults continues to magnify and increase with the baby boomer age group almost coming to their age of retiring. The inference of this is that there is an increasing necessity for enhancing healthcare results amongst patients suffering from heart failure. Self-care discrepancies have… Continue Reading...

As Bardovi-Harlig and Mahan-Taylor (2003) point out, teaching should have a pragmatic base to it so that students see the point and relevance of the exercises in their own lives. These objectives supply that point. Discussion 3: The advantages of Mr. Williams’ approach in Scenario 1 is that it challenges the students to focus and prepare for the weekly tests. This will help to keep them engaged with the material so that they can pass. The disadvantage of the approach in the scenario is that… Continue Reading...

Dreams the Unconscious Mind and Defense Mechanisms

Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic theory suggest that early stages of human development have a significant impact on our relationships and our ego throughout the life span. According to Freudian theories, manifested behavior is based on latent problems of the past. The therapeutic process of psychoanalysis is designed to help the client become aware of past problems or latent desires that have been suppressed during the process of psychological development. Key themes that emerge in the literature on psychoanalytic theory include the role of the unconscious mind in shaping self-concept and behavior, dreams as the language of the unconscious mind, and the… Continue Reading...

Intelligent Information Systems for Cars and Highways

Various smart vehicle and smart highway technologies and systems offer tremendous potential for improving road and vehicular safety. Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) have already been developed in the United States and Japan, also called Road Transport Informatics (RTI) in Europe (Collier and Weiland, 1994, p. 27). Smart highways are also referred to as Automated Vehicle Highway Systems (AVHS) or Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The lack of global consensus on what to call smart driving and smart highways reflects the burgeoning nature and broad gamut of technologies that need to be further developed and integrated into standardized systems. The most… Continue Reading...

Trends in Healthcare Management Industry

In the recent years, trends have emerged in the healthcare management industry, which includes patient protection, social media in healthcare, and drug shortages.

The Hypothetical Case Of the Nacirema

women perform special rituals that brighten the teeth through the application of special magical materials. The private mouth rituals take place in the privacy of the Nacirema home, and rarely in public Nacirema body shrines. Of the various mouth rites, the most common seems to be a ritual involving a stick with bristles at the end, a sort of brush that magically and perhaps symbolically sweeps away disease and ill health.

Rifle Association and other advocates of unrestricted gun ownership have prevented the application of these oft-ignored but critical words to the resolution of the problem today.  Against this backdrop, identifying ways to prevent the recurrence of school and other mass shooting in this country requires more than just mandating incremental and gradual changes in the gun ownership laws. In response, students and their parents at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland have rallied in support of stricter gun control laws including staging at “die-in” at the White House and forming the Students Demand Action coalition, and numerous… Continue Reading...

How to Understand the Stock Market

As with any of the big questions worth asking, there is no easy answer to whether the stock market is rigged. The real answer is both yes and no. On the one hand, the market has rules and regulations, oversight boards like the Securities and Exchange Commission, and is open for all investors to participate in on a potentially equal basis. On the other hand, the way the market works is clearly “unfair,” as Tepper puts it (1). Unfairness is built into the system because the actual point of sale is not something the ordinary investor is privy to—meaning the… Continue Reading...

Education Classroom Management Journal

Journal Entry 1 Discourse on classroom management has shifted away from a disciplinarian and authoritarian model towards one more steeped in developmental psychology, social justice, and compassion. Within a new educational paradigm, teachers can provide structure in the classroom without expecting “conformity” or “obedience” per se (Jones, Jones & Vermette, 2013, p. 21). Teachers working within a classroom management paradigm that emphasizes trust and relationship building create far more effective educational environments. Still, teachers do need to be armed with information and specific strategies. Some of the strategies recommended including improved awareness of non-verbal communication cues and a systematic means… Continue Reading...

of EHRs. Failure to sufficiently train staff on new EHRs could not only lead to the erroneous application of the same in practice, but also ignite some resistance on the said EHRs. For instance, staff used to a paper-based environment could find it challenging to transition from such an environment to EHR software if sufficient training on how to work with the new system is not offered. Training is of great relevance as it helps an entity avoid a wide range of EHR implementation setbacks (such as general frustrations leading to increased employee turnover, errors, etc.).

Psychology Of Motivation and Oxytocin

How can Deci and Ryan's (2008) self-determination theory assist individuals in their personal or professional goals? Deci & Ryan’s (2008) self-determination theory is a theory of motivation that can help individuals set and achieve personal and professional goals.

Economic Impact Australian Mining Boom

Summary In the period between 2002 and 2012, Australia experienced a mining boom; a period in which the level of exports increased more than threefold and also the investment made in mining as a percentage of the nation’s GDP increasing from 2 percent to 8 percent. Imperatively, during the mining boom period, there was a significant increase in demand for minerals. This is because of the demand for minerals not only locally but also internationally. Therefore, this caused a rightward shift in the demand curve. This leads to the positioning of a new equilibrium price. The comparative theory best explains… Continue Reading...

Race in Latin America

John Burdick in “The Lost Constituency of Brazil’s Black Movements” questions the narrative that race mixing, or mestizaje, is a solution to the problem of race in Brazil. Burdick states that “in Brazil the social perception of race exists along a continuum that encourages passing toward whiteness, making it difficult to forge a unified nonwhite identity” (139). What Burdick implies is that many Brazilians lack a distinct racial identity because of race mixing. The Black Identity in particular is negligibly felt socially in Brazil, and Burdick’s research indicates as much, with thirty participants claiming “to have used, for most of… Continue Reading...

Death Penalty As a Deterrent for Murder

a society where the system of justice is unequally distributed by the upholders of the law, the application of the death penalty as a deterrent for murder cannot be said to be effectively applied. This is why it is imperative that the system of justice and the rule of law itself be implicitly and explicitly respected and enforced fairly and equitably for the death penalty to serve as a deterrent for murder. Consequences for actions must be established clearly and consistently in order for them to carry weight, to be seen as meaningful, and to be expected as the… Continue Reading...

practical approach to applying theory in daily practice (Alligood, 2018). This paper will specifically examine the application of Kristen Swanson’s Theory of Caring to the treatment of patients suffering from diabetes mellitus living in rural settings without adequate access to healthcare. Virtually all nursing theories are composed of four essential core definitions, that of person, environment, health, and nursing itself. Swanson’s theory, however, specifically focuses on nursing, which Swanson defines as a very specific type of caring. Clinical Issue Although obesity is increasing across the nation, obesity is often particularly rife in rural settings with limited access to healthcare… Continue Reading...

In these tasks Bartleby asserts that he “prefers” not to—much to the unified shock of his boss, the… Continue Reading...

Intimate Relationships in Britain

solution of the modern—or, rather, the antidote to this misery—is the application of sentimentality to intimacy: sentimental love replaces romantic love and thus makes the commoditization of love more palatable (Illouz, 2007). This theory is extremely helpful in showing why sentimentality is so prolifically expressed in popular media: it represents the new zeitgeist of culture with respect to intimacy. Moderns do not have the stomach for romantic love, because Freud has convinced them that romantic love hurts—and they do not want to experience the same type of misery their parents inflicted on them when they fought and divorced. They… Continue Reading...

Impact of Trade Barriers There are several pizza franchises that operate internationally, and this is an opportunity open to Papa John's as well. Both Pizza Hut and Domino's have major international operations, and these have been facilitated by a reduction in trade barriers (Buss, 2013). International expansion, especially to emerging markets, has formed a part of the company's growth strategy since 2013 (Euromonitor, 2013). When trade barriers are reduced, this helps franchise businesses in a couple of key ways. First, it allows them to source inputs from anywhere it is cheapest. Papa John's might get its ingredients from America, but… Continue Reading...

It is important to note that in essence, the Baylor Plan offers a pattern that is uniform, predictable, and can be replicated over an entire scheduling period. Effectively, this helps reduce scheduling time. It should, however, be noted that this approach to scheduling is largely rigid and fails to appreciate the dynamic nature of human capital. The inflexible nature of the Baylor Plan effectively means that the unit is likely to incur significant replacement costs, overtime costs, etc. An alternative scheduling model would, therefore, be… Continue Reading...

I disagree with Patterson’s view since I believe that Aquinas’ ideas correctly epitomizes how education and learning takes place. While teachers have a role in teaching basic principles and their applicability to an individual’s life, a personal commitment to excellence and virtue is required for an individual to learn. Learning does not occur simply on the basis of instruction provided by teachers, but also requires personal responsibility from students. Reference Gutek, G. L. (1995).

Olympic Games Essay

Abstract As the Summer Olympic Games staged in Rio de Janeiro come to a close, the estimated $50 billion-plus spent on sporting venues has become the source of growing criticism by city residents who maintain that their needs were sacrificed for the political prestige that comes from hosting the Games.

In response, there have been increasing… Continue Reading...

Patient Centered Care in Healthcare Nursing

Introduction Patient-centered care is the goal of many healthcare organizations, but the ability of an organization to deliver patient-centered care is influenced by a number of factors both internal and external. Business practices, regulatory requirements, and reimbursement all can impact patient-centered care in any healthcare organization. Promoting patient-centered care requires an organizational culture committed to this paradigm, which also needs to be embedded in the mission and values of the organization. Executives and administrators create the organizational culture that promotes patient-centered care. All leaders in the organization are responsible for using patient-centered practices and communications styles in their interactions with… Continue Reading...

Interdisciplinary Health Services in Rural America

Introduction Basically, building and preserving these relationships can be tough, given divergent institutional priorities, ethnicities, and anticipations and absence of a shared perspective. Members of a compact countryside neighborhood tend to be focused on a number of institutions that carry opposing priorities. Countryside institutions could also deal with restricted chances to partnerships, based on their general public health objectives and institutional priorities. Of further significance is the fact that developing relationships amid local health divisions (LHDs), neighborhood health facilities, health agencies, workplaces of countryside health, medical centers, non-profit institutions, as well as the private marketplace is important to meet the… Continue Reading...

Colonialism in Higher Education Indigenous

Public Intellectual Essay The introduction of critical race theory and other anti-colonial approaches to academic discourse has obscured the fact that higher education itself remains embedded in colonial institutions and structures. Higher education is a vestige of colonial means of psychological and social control. The political implications of colonialism in higher education include the perpetuation of hegemony, the suppression and subordination of alternative epistemologies, the ongoing political dominion over what constitutes knowledge, and the use of higher education to promote structures and institutions that serve the dominant culture. Although often an unconscious process, the ways colonial mentalities and processes remain… Continue Reading...

Moreover, Nouwen (2014) advises the application of anthropological paradigms and data collection methods to study structural variables in nuanced, multifaceted ways. Other ethical conundrums that may arise during the course of criminal justice research include “research fatigue,” presuming a colonialist/exploitative approach to gathering data without giving back to the community or individuals being interviewed, and the power politics inherent in information gathering (Nouwen, 2014, p. 244-246). Researchers tend to come from privileged positions, and therefore control the flow of information and the means by which… Continue Reading...

Within the judicial domain, the ‘stare decisis’ doctrine constitutes the most important application of the above principle. ‘Stare decisis’ implies a court decision to stick to a prior decision despite not agreeing with, or having suspicions regarding, the decision’s outcome in terms of merits. Commentators and the stare decisis operation within the US court system have provided several justifications with respect to deferring to the judicial precedent. One assumption disagreeing with upsetting resolved cases enhances predictability, allowing more confident organization of stakeholder affairs (Kozel & Pojanowski, 2011). Similarly, stare decisis offers a mechanism to respect reliance expenses… Continue Reading...

Why an Essentialist View Of Gender Is Outdated

Social network mapping is one of the important aspects of an individual’s professional development in his/her career. Creating a social network map is important for professionals in clinical practice because clinical practitioners are increasingly realizing the significance of informal social support in their practice (Tracy & Whittaker, 1990). In essence, analysis of social support resources is necessary in identifying routine practices and assessment that are clinically beneficial. Consequently, several social network mapping techniques have been developed to help an individual assess his/her social and environmental resources (Tracy & Abell, 1994). Social network maps gather information regarding an individual’s social network… Continue Reading...

Spirituality and Humanistic Psychology Individual

Question 1 The individual’s experience and the personal construction of meaning are central to humanistic psychology. Theorists like Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow initially promoted this humanistic view of psychology, which was contrary to the prevailing tenets of behaviorism and psychoanalysis. Instead of focusing on past experiences and environmental variables, Rogers and Maslow focused on the person’s perceptions and intrinsic motivations (“What is Humanistic Psychology?” n.d.). Moreover, early theorists also negated the importance of experimental studies and other applications of the scientific method to psychological inquiry because these methods have a way of dehumanizing and devaluing personal experience (McLeod, 2015).… Continue Reading...

The use of descriptive phenomenological methods may be best when encountering an unknown or peculiar phenomenon for which there has yet to be any broad consensus on interpretation. The use of interpretive phenomenological methods may be best used for studying research questions with a large body of literature, but which require a fresh perspective. References Englander, M.

Assessing the Benefits Of Marijuana

Introduction The drug, marijuana, is actually not as lethal to human beings as cigarettes or alcohol. Further, it is much less addictive, being generally consumed in far lesser quantities. It is also not strongly linked to accidents, risky sexual conduct, and violence, the way alcohol is. Lastly, one can never lose one’s life to marijuana overdose. While a small share of individuals who consume marijuana do develop addiction, this issue can be easily treated. Marijuana in the form of a medicine proves effective in dealing with various acute symptoms such as wasting diseases, nausea and vomiting. Marijuana is very commonly… Continue Reading...

The Formation Of Virtual Teams

Emotional intelligence and high Virtual team performance Background The contemporary business environment is competitive just as much as I is creative in nature. The globalization and its influences have pushed the business environment to greater heights as compared to the prevailing levels two decades ago. Information technology has led to a market environment that is both advanced and dynamic at the same time. The trends that may be a preference of many in a given year may seem useless and rendered inapplicable in the next year. This means that any business that has to keep in touch with the customers… Continue Reading...

How Environment Influences Business

Effect of External and Internal Environment Introduction Organizations have both an internal and external environment. To begin with, the forces or circumstances within the borderline of the organization are the components of the internal environment. Notably, the internal environment comprises for the most part of the owners, employees, board of directors, stakeholders, and the corporate culture. On the other hand, factors that are extrinsic to the organization are the components of the external environment. It is imperative to note that these are elements that the organization bears no control of as they impact the entire the industry and therefore the… Continue Reading...

The Counselor Client Relationship at Work

Discussion Essay Questions 1 An employer is required to provide reasonable accommodations for a disabled worker so long as it does not put undue hardship upon the employer. Reasonable accommodations refer to changes that are implemented either to the workplace environment or to the position occupied by the disabled worker. So long as the disabled worker is still qualified to do the job, the employer, under the ADA, has to accommodate the worker’s disability—so long, of course, as it does not cause the employer undue hardship (Repa, 2018). In some cases, this has made it easier for individuals with disabilities… Continue Reading...

Behaviorism Psychoanalysis and Hte Psychology

diverse as education, organizational/industrial psychology, or on psychopathology. The primary application of psychology no matter what the theoretical orientation is to help people. The theories behind behaviorism have been instrumental in promoting evidence-based practice in psychology. Most psychologists, even those who are grounded more on another movement such as psychoanalysis or HTE, “would still agree that they are concerned to observe and understand the behavior of organisms,” (Staddon, 1973, p. 25). The inner mental life of beings is important from a phenomenological perspective, as any HTE or psychoanalytic practitioner would claim, but ultimately a person interacts with the world… Continue Reading...

Self Management in Nursing

included in this definition that help to expand its meaning and give it new application are the theories of classical conditioning developed by Pavlov (1927) and Skinner (1953). These two theories helped to lead the way to cognitive behavior theory, which was then developed into one of the leading psychoanalytic therapies today—cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT plays a part in behavior self-management in that the target behavior is identified by the patient with the assistance of the psych nurse and the patient is then given the tools and empowered to self-manage his or her own behavior in order to… Continue Reading...

This is because in settings where neonatality is high, there needs to be a stronger substance used in order to offer the child a higher level of protection of preventative care. Dry-based antiseptics offer their own advantages and can be used in first-world countries and comparable places where neo-natality is not as big a concern. This is a clear case of where… Continue Reading...

Postpartum Depression and Gilman Yellow Wallpaper

Long before the term postpartum depression became part of the vernacular, Charlotte Perkins Gilman deftly and sensitively describes the complex condition in her short story “The Yellow Wallpaper.” The story describes the prevailing attitudes towards women and their narrowly defined roles in society. White, upper middle class women like the narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper” could not easily express discontent with their position as wife and mother. The narrator’s husband—a physician—believes there is “nothing the matter” with his wife except “temporary nervous depression” and “a slight hysterical tendency,” (Gilman 648). Noting her brother is also a physician, the narrator exclaims,… Continue Reading...

Nursing Premise for Healthcare Delivery

there are parts that can be completely opaque regarding real world application. It can be harder for the nurse to determine how to use these more opaque tenets, given their “relation to reciprocal interaction or simultaneous action world?views and in relation to the extent of focus on the concept within the model or theory” (Matsold & Mickley, 2001). Hence, all forms of usage can make all theoretical understandings seem tenuous. However, Parse’s theory has the potential to be triumphant. Given how lofty and how existential its founding pillars are, it is often of great comfort to those people going… Continue Reading...

great contribution to education was simply the fact that he recognized this zone and its application in the learning process of children. In the field of physical education it can be applied in a way that benefits the teacher, the young learner and the older student serving as the assistant in the class. For my classes, I would like to see for myself how effective this approach to learning can be. By creating an environment that is wholly dedicated to creating zones of proximal development, I would be enabling primary school students to learn at their own pace, to… Continue Reading...

Systems Thinking in New Product Development

(Caldwell, 2012); both somewhat spurious assumptions. Ulrich (2012) discusses the application of systems thinking to operational research. The study of operations informs the practice of operations, so there is value in applying systems thinking to operations research. Critical systems thinking, the author notes, will benefit both operations research and practice. Valerdi and Rouse (n.d.) point out, however, that for many individuals and businesses, systems thinking is "not a natural act." There are many people who struggle with being able to conceptualize entire systems. The value of systems thinking, therefore can be extracted by training people about systems thinking, and helping… Continue Reading...

In terms of opportunities between the host country’s cultural and institutional aims and attitudes and those of the West, opportunities exist in many forms. As Liu and Almor (2016) note, both China and the West have unique expectations about consumer behavior and organizational behavior. However, as a result of globalization, a lot of the expectations of the West have been imbibed by Chinese entrepreneurs who are more than likely going to be the ones to form… Continue Reading...

Difference Between Goals and Objectives Essay

The terms “goals” and “objectives” are used interchangeably but in fact, they do connote different things. Particularly in the context of teaching and learning, it is important to differentiate between goals and objectives. Goals refer to broad end results, whereas objectives tend to be more specific (Norman, 2017). Thus, a learner may have a goal of improving patient care, with the learning objectives being to reduce medical errors by fifty percent. Another key difference between goals and objectives is that the latter can and should be framed in measurable or quantitative ways. Goals do not need to be measurable and… Continue Reading...

As French (2011) points out, the equity theory postulates that pay alone does not impact employee motivation. Instead, employee feelings of equal and fair treatment do further enhance their motivation. Denson could, therefore, ensure that he is not dismissive of Tanney’s concerns. When it comes to Mahonney, Denson could embrace the prompt feedback approach whereby progress is constantly monitored with an aim of assessing the ground covered so far and the desired course of action in seeking to accomplish the overall objectives.

Statistical Significance and Meaningfulness Essay

    Meaningfulness refers to the practical, real world application of a statistic.  If a statistically significant correlation between variables, for instance, has meaningfulness that correlation says something to the real world and understanding that correlation can have an impact on how people adjust to the situation from here on out.  Therefore, while statistical significance is helpful, it is not the end-all-be-all for research:  a research finding has to be meaningful for it to have importance.  It has to have some sort of impact in the real world for it to be meaningful.     For… Continue Reading...

sympathetic to the Israeli-side of the story—and as Robinson (2002) indicates, the effect of spectacle, the application of soft power, the use of embedded reporting, interventionism in the guise of humanitarianism, and the CNN effect all go hand in hand. Soft power or the influence of political aims through the injection of funds into the targeted arena is a common method employed by the U.S. overseas, and as Seib (2009) points out, ‘the effective exercise of soft power depends largely on its being a part of a comprehensive, well-designed public diplomacy effort’ (p. 780). The ‘complex’ narrative regarding the… Continue Reading...

The Path Goal Theory is known for its emphasis on the selection of leadership style guided by the character traits of the employee and the task. The motivation of the follower, therefore, depends on the ability of the leader to choose the appropriate leadership style. The theory is… Continue Reading...

How to Get a Patent

to begin with, and then you must begin the process with the U.S. government by initiating the provisional patent application process. This is to allow you to obtain patent-pending status for your invention. It is not the means by which a patent is obtained, however. In order to obtain the patent, you must proceed to the next step, which is more intensive and requires more work on your part—and this is the regular patent application process. The first step, the provisional patent application process, requires a small fee ($65 for micro-entities, $130 for small entities and $260 for large… Continue Reading...

In such cases, the utilitarian would be obliged to put down the rebellion and reassess the common good (minus the will of those who were once counted among the living but are now no more). Utilitarianism must define the common good and the greatest benefit so that individual good and benefit is in harmony with it (Mill, 2008). References A History of Utilitarianism. (2014).

Film the Help Review

The Help: Film Review and Discussion The film The Help (2011), which was adapted for the screen and directed by Tate Taylor from the novel by Kathryn Stockett attempts to tackle heavy complex subject matter from a questionable perspective. The film is set in the 1960s in Jackson Mississippi, two details that make the film as loaded and complex as it can possibly be. The 1960s were the Civil Rights era in America, and Jackson Mississippi was a dangerous place. It was home to the confederacy and was a place where hundreds of innocent blacks had been lynched, among many… Continue Reading...

This quite basic method of features extraction for the development of coin profiles can be scaled: for example, features can be extracted for different periods of time, forming wider sets of features for each coin. Alternatively, a measure of similarity can be found for different periods and compiled in unified metrics across all periods. In short, clustering can be conducted across multiple variables as inputs. The next step in the process was to perform clustering relying on extracted… Continue Reading...

Training Transfer and Human Resources Theory

Theory-based information can help organizations to ascertain the most appropriate training and development programs for their employees. In fact, theory-based information helps human resources managers to structure training and development for specific groups of people. The most relevant theories include those that are related to learning, and those that are related to social relations and identity construction. Learning theories can be based on basic behaviorism, including patterns of reward and punishment that can be used to motivate specific behaviors and discourage undesirable behaviors that detract from inter-group harmony (Duggan, n.d.). However, cognitive theories of learning can be even more helpful… Continue Reading...

This makes information more accessible, but also easier to log into, steal, and manipulate if hackers have the right tools and knowledge. Tapping into or disrupting the nation’s cyber infrastructure can bring commerce and government to a standstill, as… Continue Reading...

It simply rests on reason. Of course, it can rest on other things as well, as Avery Dulles shows in his 7 models of faith, which shall be described later in this essay.[footnoteRef:8]… Continue Reading...
