I will be looking at the University where I earned my BachelorÃ¢â¬â¢s, through the Quinn Model. I earned my BA at Marylhurst University which when I started its big selling point to their students was a focus on non-traditional students, small class sizes and advisor that work with small groups of students. From the student perspective it was very much Human Resources view and Internal process view. On the more administrative side the president of the university was typically a person educated in business while there was a diverse administration to keep the university in balance (Cawsey, Deszca, Ingols 2016). In my second year a president came along that was educated in education, they overhauled the administration and the business side of the university suffered. The school lost that equilibrium. Money was lost, departments were merged, some advisors were put in charge of larger groups of students and class sizes were doubled. Both students and staff were not happy with the direction things were heading - in fact that s how people became aware of it. Tenured professors flat out told us that things were changing and the school had to change its core model because for Because the president had bungled things. The president was stepping down but it was going to take a while to get things back to normal. Insights: 1. There might be a tendency to focus on one area. In the case of Marylhurst the president and the new administration were very focused on the students and education,Show MoreRelatedEffectiveness of Pccr Review Center19276 Words Ã |Ã 78 PagesStatistic Leading to the Degree Bachelor of Science in Criminology BY: Section:4-B2 MYRA M.

The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri Inferno The poem Inferno is about a man who has Ã¢â¬Å"lost the path that does not strayÃ¢â¬ (Inferno, Canto I, line 3) where Ã¢â¬Å"the pathÃ¢â¬ represents the path to Heaven. Dante, having strayed from the path, is in danger of being sent to Hell. When Beatrice, whom Dante loved before her early death, finds out that Dante has strayed she becomes worried that he will not be able to join her in Heaven. Beatrice wants to help Dante find God again, but because she is an angel, she cannot walk through Hell or Purgatory and in her stead she asks the Roman poet Virgil to guide Dante on a cautionary trip. Much the way Dante travels through Hell in the Divine Comedy, Macbeth must endure the consequences of his actions.Ã¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Macbeth by the witches and Dante by Beatrice and Virgil. The witches quote mentioned earlier can be connected to Inferno as well, Dante has Ã¢â¬Å"lost the path that does not strayÃ¢â¬ (Inferno, Canto I, line 3) or has become sinful, or bad. T his becomes reversed after the supernatural forces of the poem have finished, in Inferno DanteÃ¢â¬â¢s morality is reversed for the better and in Macbeth the forces of the supernatural manipulate Macbeth and corrupt him causing him to become evil. The two poems are almost complete opposites. In Macbeth the protagonist, Macbeth, advances to power through murder, progressively becoming more evil, or sinful, in nature. Macbeth moves progressively farther from God and moral rightness, the opposite of Dante both in character and development. Macbeth begins as an honourable man who wants to serve his King and country but eventually becomes a traitor to his benefactor which, in the terms of Inferno, would place him in the ninth circle of Hell, along with Lucifer, Brutus, Judas and Cassius. Dante begins as a man who is off the moral path and later becomes closer to God. MacbethÃ¢â¬â¢s wife manipulates and pressures Macbeth into becoming the King through assassination. While in Inferno Dante progressively becomes less evil and closer to God by traveling through Hell and eventually stops pitying the souls of the damned and actually begins condemning them.

Questions: 1.If Joseph and Cindy decided to sue Dr Lin, what type of legal action would that be?What are the elements of the offence that Joseph and Cindy need to prove for the action to be successful? What is the standard of proof required in this case? 2.Describe the defence that Dr Lin could raise. This includes describing the elements of a valid consent (with supporting case law and legislation), and the process for obtaining consent in those circumstances when an adult cannot provide it themselves. 3.What are the possible outcomes of this case? 4.Identify two principles that are relevant in this scenario and describe how they apply to the facts in the scenario. 5.Describe where a conflict between these principles may arise by considering the different values of stakeholders in the scenario. 6.Apply the Kerridge et al. (2013) model for ethical problem solving to address the conflict. Answers: This essay demonstrates the legal action that would be taken against Dr. Lin. And the elements of the offence that Joseph and Cindy would need need to prove for the action to be successful. It includes the the standard of proof that should be given by them in this case. The essay deals with the defence that Dr Lin could raise and the possible outcomes of this case.It also includes the two principles that are relevant in this scenario with reference to Beauchamp and Childress (2009). 1.If Joseph and Cindy decided to sue Dr Lin it would be law suit filed against the doctor for medical negligence and the breach of duty care by the doctor. This is because she did not perform any medical tests before proceeding with the surgery.They can make an allegation on the doctor Ms Lin that she ignored her previous symptoms of forgetfulness and her elevated temperature due to urinary tract infection and performed the abdominoplasty(Baum, 2014).Joseph and Cindy can sue the doctor on the basis of being negligent of the symptoms and performing the surgery. They should provide the medical reports obtained after the autopsy of Sofie to find the exact reason of death.This worsened the condition of Sophie and ultimately led to her death. This is known as diagnostic mistake of Dr. Lin as she was in rush to perform the surgery. Joseph and Cindy need to file a case with the proof that the death of Sophie occurred due to the surgery performed by Dr. Lin. They should take the help of an experienced defense attorney and collect all the evidences of her medical reports including her condition and the symptoms occurred before conducting the surgery. These reports of Sophie will act as the standard of proof in this case.They can take the help of expert lawyers practicing in Singapore who have excellent knowledge of professional, legal and ethical issues in the medical profession(Cohen, 2013).They can help them in handling their matter in an effective manner.Joseph and Cindy can sue Dr Lin on the basis of Medical Malpractice and clainm for monetary compensation. They can avail for revovery that is avaialble for victimsand their family members suffering from medical negligience. The settlement is done on the basis of a large number of factors such as the severity of the harm faced by the patient, the amount of money spend by the patient in undergoing the surgery, the cost of life in th future of their husband and children due to the loss of Sofie,lack of finance and suffering bthat would occur after the death of the earning memeber in the family.On the basis of these grounds Josepgh nad Cindy can sue Dr, Lin and get monetary compensation after winning the case(Cave, 2016). 2.The defense that Dr. Lin could raise can be by producing several evidences of the fact that the cause of the death was not because of the actions of the medical doctor. The death of Sofie must have occured due to any other medical reasons which was not related to the abdominoplasty that she had undergone.Shge can also defend herself on the grounds that valid consent form that was filled by the husband of Sophie, Joseph. She might fight for the reason that if, the operation did not succeed, the she cannot be said to be negligent as it is already mentioned in the consent form that the patient can die after the surgery(Herring, 2014). A consent acts as the basic right for a patient to decide whether he or she wants the treatment or not. The decision of patient is considered irrespective of the fact that if he denies the medical treatment, it may result in her death.If a medical surgeon tries to perform a surgery without a proper consent from the patient, then he or she is considered l iable for criminal action and can be sued. Dr. Lin might provide the consent by explaining that Sophie was not in a normal state to fill the consent form, so her husband was asked to fill it 3.The possible outcome of this case is that it is possible that Dr. Lin might win the case as it cannot be proved that the treatment of Sophie by Lin was against the medical norms under prevailing the medical jurisprudence .It can also not be proved that Dr. Lin was negligent or lacked in any manner while performing the surgery of the patient.Joseph and Cindy cannot prove that the health of Sophie worsened due to the surgery that is abdominoplasty performed by Dr. Lin The appeal of Joseph and Cindy might get dismissed on the basis of lack of proper evidence and expert opinion produced by them to prove negligence of Dr. Lin(Terranova, 2016). 4.The two principles that are relevant in this scenario are the respect for autonomy and beneficience. Respect for autonomy is one of the most important aspects in the field of medical ethics. It involves respecting the decisions of the patient and the right to make his or her own choice. In this case Dr. Lin asked Sophie whether she wants to proceed with the surgery of abdomen or not and Sophie was very keen and agreed to proceed with it. But the doctor completely forgot and did not ask Sophie to fill up the consent form. The appeal of Joseph and Cindy might get dismissed.because only making an allegation on Dr. Lin will not make it a case of negligence unless and until it is being proven by a proper and a reliable evidence(Furrow, Greaney, Johnson, Schwartz, 2014). Beneficience means that the nurses should try their best in providing quality care that would help in improving the health and well being of their patients .It refers that the doctors or the clinicians should work towards the welfare and the benefit of the patients. They should try their best to perform their duties and be responsible towards their patients. The health professionals providing patient care should be responsible towards their patients as well towards their family members(Ball, Murrells, Rafferty, Griffiths, 2013). The clinicians should be supportive and should provide guidelines on the various precautions to be taken. They should also make sure they solve their problems and issues. They should provide appropriate health care services by using proper communication skills and ensure patient satisfaction. They should provide proper counseling and psychosocial care to get rid of emotional health like pain, anxiety; distress and low self esteem occurred due to the health i ssues.In this case Dr. Lin tried her best to provide proper medication and care to Sophie before proceeding for the surgery. She was administered a pre-operative medication so that she drifts off to sleep and does not feel the pain of abdominoplasty and as a result the surgery was successful and Sophie was advised an oververnight stay in hospital and was discharged home the next day(Daly Jackson, 2017). 5.The conflict on the basis of the principls explained above are that Dr. Lin respected the choice of Sophie and procceeded with the surgery only after knowing that she was keen on having it.She did not force her to undergo abdominolplasty. But, her husband Joseph was not sure about her decision and nodded his head when Dr. Lin said that she was having symptoms only due to another urinary tract infection. Dr. Lin tried her best so that the surgery becomes successfiul and provided propr care to Sophie(Turner, 2015)(Hube, 2013). But the problem arose when after seven days of surgery, Sofie did not not recovered at all from her surgery. She had an increased temperature, was suffering from high pulse rate and became much more disorientated than she was before the surgery. She was transferred back to hospital. Unfortunately, Sofie was suffering from a post-operative infection and sepsis. Despite providing her proper care, her condition deteriorated in a rapid manner and Sofie passed away.Hence, this incidence left Joseph nad Cindy devastated and they planned to sue Dr Lin for the same. 6.According to Kerridge et al. (2013) model for ethical problem Joseph and Cindy can file a case in the court against Dr. Lin on the basis of Law of Negligence as it requires a few more factors other than care for the patient. It is important for Joseph and Cindy, who wish to sue Dr Lin in negligenc to show a few evidences that they owed her a legal duty to take care of Sophie and she breached the legal duty given to her.She did not diagnose the medical condition of the patient in a proper manner and did not understand the nature of the proposed cosmetological procedure that is abdominoplasty that was proposed by her. Before proceeding with the surgery she must have reesearched about the the risks that might occur in future due to proposed medical treatment. Dr. Lin should must also have give a second thought about any other alternatives to the proposed treatment, and the advantages and risks involved with those alternatives. Joseph and Cindy should also show the proof that the breac h caused them a lot of damage which led to the death of Sofie(Wall Morrison, 2014).But Joseph and Cindy did not proper evidence. But, in this case Dr. Lin can defend herself by apealing that the death of Sofie did not occur duye the cosmetological traet,ment that is abdominoplasty.It would have occured due to tyhe irinary tract infection which she was already suffering from before.; Hence, it can be concluded that Joseph and Cindy can sue Dr. Lin and file a case against her as she performed abdominoplasty by giving antibiotics ,when Sofie was suffering from forgetfulness and elevated temperature of the body. She also forgot to get the consent form filled by Sofie and asked Joseph to fill the same.This led to the death of Sofie after a week even when the surgery was successful and the sudden death of Sofie lead both Joseph and Cindy in shock. They can ask for a monetary compensation by producing all the reports and medical bills to the court. Dr. Lin can also defend herself by saying that by explaining the medical laws that Sophie was not in a normal state to fill the consent form, so her husband was asked to fill it. She can produce several poofs tha Sofie was provided proper care before and after the surgery and her death is not necessary the result of abdominoplasty and it might have occured due to other medical reasons Bibliography Ball, Murrells, Rafferty, Griffiths, (2013).

A focus on the U.S. city of Las Vegas and its features outside the gambling world. This paper sheds light on the land of temptation known as Las Vegas. While the city has earned fame by being one of the biggest gambling centers in the world, still it is important to understand that the place has a lot to offer to those visitors too whose idea of fun doesnt include squandering money. This paper shows how Las Vegas turned into the fastest growing city of the United States both in terms of economy and population during the mid-1980s and but while the former brought huge investment into the city, the latter led to numerous problems which are commonly associated with a rapidly growing urban center. The paper focuses on all the things that keep Las Vegas in the news. The city earned its reputation as a gambling town in the fifties and sixties when its ever-sprouting casinos attracted the not-so-decent crowd and it was believed that the city was good for those who wanted some adult fun on the weekends. We will write a custom essay sample on Las Vegas: More Than a Gambling Hub or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page But all that has changed now, not only has it become a major vacation resort, there are actually some people who would love to call this once-wicked town their home. One thing has remained unchanged though, the city with its Disney-like magic and lure and its almost surreal magnificence aims to attract adult visitors only. Just like Disney would lure the young kids to its magical world, similarly this land of vicious temptations is meant primarily for adults.

The Researchers ABSTRACT This research study aimed to investigate the viability of banana peel paper as a alternative to commercial linen paper.The study used experimental and control unit and which was visually judge and rated according to a three-point scale, 1-Low; 2-Meduim; and 3-High as regards to luster and smoothness. The data gathered were analyzed using the Two-way Analysis of Variance and Comparison Mean Test. Computation results show that lusterity across treatment and not across judges are significantly different from each other with a probability value, pgt;0. 01. Mean comparison test revealed that experimental unit is significantly different from the control unit. This means that the control unit is more luster than the experimental unit.Based on the result of mean smoothness scores of experimental and control unit as rated by 10 judges and subjecting this to an analysis of variance, the studies showed that there was no significant difference between the experimental and control unit in so far as smoothness is concerned Therefore, it was proven that in terms of the viability of banana peelings as an alternative to commercial linen paper, banana peel paper can be as effective as for commercial linen in terms of smoothness. INTRODUCTION: Background of the study Paper is one of the major materials used nowadays in schools, offices, etc. Some papers are made brand-new from trees either small or large trees are harvested just for the purpose. If this is the case paper companies will need to cut down trees to provide paper for the community. Today, with the increasing number of calamities, trees must be preserved to avoid flood, instead of cutting down trees for providing paper, there is a need to search and design a wise and cheap alternativesource of paper.The use of botanical materials is increasingly gaining popularity as strategic approach toward a sustainable environment and production of safe materials. Banana is one of the leading fruit grown in the Philippines and a consistent top dollar earner. It makes bananas abundant in the Philippines because of its tropical climate. More than 50 different kinds of bananas are found in our country. The banana fruit when ripe is eaten, living behind the banana peel. The study was made to make pape r out of banana peel, to reduce waste as well as the cutting down of trees.The researchers aimed to come up with a paper that is ofhigh quality but on the other hand must also be cost efficient, and most importantly environmental- friendly. RESEARCH PARADIGM Figure 1 R esearch Paradigm A diagram framework is shown in the above figure. It presents the paradigm, which guided the researchers in the overall conduct of the study. The input variables were the materials use in making the banana peel paper. Having done the process, the output is the banana peel paper. The arrows communicate the adjustments to be made through a feedback loop depending on the results of the study.Hence, adjustments could be made in the input or process. Statement of the Problem The study was designed for the purpose of making a paper out of banana peel. These reasons brought the researchers to conduct the experiment. Specifically, it aimed to answer the following questions. Will it be viable as an alternative to commercial linen paper? Will it be cheaper to sue than the commercial paper? Hypotheses Null Hypothesis Ã¢â¬â There is no significant difference in the luster between the experimental and the control unit. -There is no significant difference in the smoothness between the experimental and the control unit. Alternative HypothesisÃ¢â¬â There is a significant difference in the luster between the experimental and the control unit. There is a significant difference in the smoothness between the experimental and the control unit. Objective of the study The main objective of this study was to determine if banana peel paper is better than the commercial linen paper in terms of lusterity and smoothness. Significance of the Study The study was conducted to make paper out of banana peel. It is equally significant to the following. Environment Using the product lessen the cutting of trees in the locality, and reduce the waste scattered in the surroundings Community. The insights and valuable information from this study would help people in the locality to make paper out of the littered banana peelin their houses and it will also reduce the waste in the community. Researchers. The gathered data would motivate them and help them to conduct further researches in line with this study. Scopes and Delimitation This study is focused mainly on the use of banana peelings in the production of paper. The researchers did not dwell on the chemical composition of the peelings.Time and place of the study This study was conducted at the Science Laboratory of Baggao National High School from July 20- July 30, 2012 . Definition of terms Banana peel the skin of a banana (especially when it is stripped off and discarded). Paper a thin material consisting of flat sheets made from pulped wood, cloth, or fiber. Use: for writing and printing on, for wrapping things in, for covering walls. Musa acuminataÃ¢â¬â scientific name of banana. Extract Ã¢â¬â is an aqueous solution containing the active principal of the plant. Control- Variables that do not receive any treatment.Experimental- The variables that receive treatment. Chapter 2 REVIEW OF THE RELATED LITERATURE Banana (Musa acuminata +Musa balbisiana) Banana is the common name for herbaceous plants of the genus Musa and for the fruit they produce. It is one of the oldest cultivated plants. They are native to tropical South and Southeast Asia, and are likely to have been first domesticated in Papua New Guinea. Today, they are cultivated throughout the tropics. ] They are grown in at least 107 countries, primarily for their fruit, and to a lesser extent to make fiber, banana wine and as ornamental plants.Its fruits, rich in starch, grow in clusters hanging from the top of the plant. They come in a variety of sizes and colors when ripe, including yellow, purple, and red. Almost all modern edible parthenocarpic bananas come from two wild species Ã¢â¬â Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana. The scientific names of bananas are Musa acuminata, Musa balbisiana or hybrids Musa acuminata ? balbisiana, depending on their genomic constitution. The old scientific names Musa sapientum and Musa paradisiaca are no longer used Banana is also used to describe Enset and Fei bananas, neither of which belong to the aforementioned species.Enset bananas belong to the genus Ensete while the taxonomy of Fei-type cultivars is uncertain. ( From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) In popular culture and commerce, banana usually refers to soft, sweet dessert bananas. By contrast, Musa cultivars with firmer, starchier fruit are called plantains or cooking bananas. The distinction is purely arbitrary and the terms plantain and banana are sometimes interchangeable depending on their usage. ( (http://en. wikipedia. org/) Related Research/Studies Musa sapientum peels were analyzed for minerals and anti-nutritional contents.The results of mineral content indicate the concentration (mg/g) of potassium, calcium, sodium, iron, manganese, bromine, rubidium, strontium, zirconium, and niobium to be 78. 10, 19. 20, 24. 30, 0,61, 76. 20, 0,04, 0. 21, 0. 03, 0. 02 and 0. 02 respectively. The percentage concentration of protein, lipid, carbohydrates and crude fibre were 0. 96,1,7059. 06 and 31. 70 respectively. Results indicated that if the peels are properly exploited and process, they could be a high quality and cheap source of CHO and minerals for livestock. (Department of Chemical College of Advance Professional Studies, Makurdi ).In another studies made, Musa sapientum prevent anaemia by stimulating the production of haemoglobin in the blood. Its role to regulate blood pressure has been associated with the high concentration of potassium (Benue State University, Makurdi). What further stated that banana helps in solving problem in solving the problem of constipation without necessary resulting to laxative. It can cure heart burns, stress, strokes, ulcers and many other ailments. The peels have been reported to be useful in making banana charcoal, an alternative source of cooking fuel in Kampala. Along with other fruits and vegetable consumption of bananas may be associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer and in women, breast cancer and renal carcinoma. In India ,juice is extracted from the corn and used as a home remedy for jaundices sometimes with the addition of honey and for kidney stones. Kudan reported that the peels in conjunction with other substances create a liniment for reducing the acuteness of the arthritis, aches and pains. The organic matter content was found to be 91. 00%. Organic matter measures the nutritional value (lipids, proteins and CHOI of a plant material).The high value indicates that the banana peels are good source of nutrient . The study of the anti-nutrient content of the peel indicates generally low values except saponins . This means that if the peels are properly processed could be good source of food for livestock(Joshua Waya, April 2007). The banana plant has long been source of fibre for high quality textiles. It is used in the production of banana paper. Banana as fertilizer work out with a number of plants. Bananas have a lot of health benefits. Using banana skin fertilizer is also a great way of recycling kitchen waste (Robert Marcello).Banana peels add several important nutrients to fertilizer including calcium, magnesium, sulphur, potassium phosphate and sodium. Banana peels can be use as compost or fertilizer as- is but the nutrients they contain may be released more slowly and the benefits to your plants greatly reduced. Dried banana peels have 30-40% tannin content. This substance is used to treat and blacken leather, fresh banana peels are an efficient shoe polisher. (Maria Kielmas, August 2011) Banana Fiber Textile Products Banana fibers such as flax, jute, hemp, and pineapple etc plant fibers. re all made up of thick walled cell tissue and they are bonded together by natural gums and support the branches, stems, leaves and fruits. Although banana plants and fibers are available in tropical regions in abundance, their application potential has not been exploited fully. At present, other companIies make the limited application of banana fiber ,for example, in making ropes, mats, and some other fields such as the composite materials. In recent years, more and more plant fibers were considered to be environmentally friendly fiber sources , and many countries are emphasizing the utilizing of these fibers. li-fei. com) Chapter 3 METHODOLOGY A. MATERIALS Knives, banana peels,Blender, A mesh surface, Hot boiling water PROCEDURE Gathering of Banana Peel The Banana peelings were brought by the second year science class. Some were brought by the reaserchers. Preparation for the Banana Peelings The banana fruit were peeled and the fruits were discarded or eaten. The banana peels where weighed by the researchers to get the right concentration and got exactly 156 grams, usually it takes 4 banana peels to get the exact weight. The imperfections in the banana peels were trimmed until only the banana peel retained.Chopping of the Banana Peelings The banana peelings were cut into small pieces/sections. A knife was used to chop the banana peel easily. Cutting of Paper Two pieces of paper, with an intermediate size were gathered in a waste can. The papers were cut into smaller sections. The blender was used to blend the papers with 250ml water within 30 seconds. Preparation of the Treatment The small pieces of banana peelings and small pieces of paper with 125 ml of water, placed in a blender and was mixed for within 30 seconds until the mixture was uniformed. Molding the TreatmentA mesh surface with a uniform depth of 1mm was moistened using water. Using a ladle, the banana peel mixture was spread over the moistened mesh. Drying of the Treatment The mixture was left under the sun for 24hours or until the extract was entirely dry. The banana peel was removed gently from the mesh. Then the paper was placed on a flat surface under the sun for it to become fully dry. Gathering and Analysis of Data The experimental and control unit passes through ten(10) judges and were rated according to a 3-point scale. 1- low; 2- medium and 3- high as regards to lus ter and smoothness.Data were analyzed using the Two-way Analysis of Variance and Comparison Mean test.

Imogene King's theory of goal attainment - Research Paper Example A mutually shared communication between the nurse and the patient is assumed to happen according to the theory. This in turn formulates the goal towards which they work together. The patientÃ¢â¬â¢s perception of the world as a total person making transactions with the other individuals and groups of individuals has been considered a major assumption of the discussed theory.
