Music Therapy and Nursing - A Non-Pharmacological Approach to Nursing

Music Therapy and Nursing - A Non-Pharmacological Approach to Nursing

As I am learning more and more about the profession of nursing I have become interested in non-pharmacological approaches to nursing. There are many times that medication is used to either progress a feeling or suppress it. I have looked to music therapy to provide the same outcome that medication provides without the side effects and wear and tear on the body. I believe that it is important for nurses to look to music to ease such feelings of pain, suffering, and to stimulate the mind and soul.

The Kennedy Assassination - Will We Ever Know What Happen?

The Kennedy Assassination - Will We Ever Know What Happen?

The question above contains hidden assumptions, among them the idea that there is a single “we” who know things collectively. But the Kennedy assassination lies on faulty line of belief, separating a public largely convinced of a conspiracy and cover-up and the elite group who regard such notions as unfounded and baseless. So the rhetoric surrounding the Kennedy assassination offers a unique testing ground for theories about the construction of knowledge in society. As we concluded in our last analysis, we have a momentous historical event-the murder of a U.S. president-which after decades continues to inspire debate and controversy. With pages of Warren commission findings, hundreds of books and articles on the subject, and dozens of films and documentaries, and scholars like Dr. Rahn, Mr. Beck and Mr. Litwin, we have every little detail about the case. Yet the one conclusion that stands universally accepted as the obvious is: we have a shooting and a dead president. Beyond this basic conclusion, many theories about the assassination flourish but no single acceptable version of what” really” happen.

The Regulatory Future of Municipal Financial Processes

The Regulatory Future of Municipal Financial Processes

INTRODUCTION
Recent market turmoil has wreaked havoc on not only the individual mortgagee but on the finance market as collective mortgagor – and the result has been massive write-downs, losses, and uncertainty affecting every party involved - be it downgraded insurance companies, banks with unprecedented demands on their capital due to unforeseen exposures, and trending tightening credits, and certainly municipalities and non profits holding unsalable securities, and in some cases even becoming insolvent.

Anne Bradstreet - The Puritan Poet

Anne Bradstreet - The Puritan Poet

Anne Bradstreet was a woman that came to the New World in search for something better. As a Puritan woman she was not allowed to seek knowledge and express herself however she wanted.

Anne was an interesting poet because she poured her heart out when she wrote poetry by writing about the love of her life, her family and her beliefs.

Dissertation Examining Performance Evaluation Metrics Relating to Revenue Management: A Case Study of a North-American Hydroelectricity Organization

Examining Performance Evaluation Metrics Relating to Revenue Management: A Case Study of a North-American Hydroelectricity Organization

Performance evaluation metrics are an important part of the performance management system for organizations. In that context, this study aimed at examining performance evaluation metrics relating to revenue management accounting in the context of the North-American hydroelectricity market. The study is presenting the performance evaluation metrics in the performance management system’s context as it is important to look at the metrics in their context rather than in isolation.

A review of literature on the subjects of performance management and revenue management in the context of hydroelectric companies reveal that there is limited linkage between the two subjects. However, it has clearly demonstrated that a proper choice of performance metrics drives performance and that it is important to measure the organization’s goals in order to increase the probability of these goals being achieved.

The Paper Chase – Paper on Archives and the Public Records Office of Hong Kong

The Paper Chase – Paper on Archives and the Public Records Office of Hong Kong

This evening I propose to tell you something about the development of the Public Records Office of Hong Kong and about the role which it can or should play in the conservation and use of Hong Kong’s archival resources. But before doing this I think that it may be worthwhile to spend some time talking about archives as such - about what archives are and how modern archive institutions operate. Many of you may be quite knowledgeable on this subject already and if you are I apologise for seeming to assume otherwise. But some quite astonishing misconceptions exist about archivists and their profession, as all archivists know, and when we asked to address a general audience few of us can quell the thought that at least some present may be harbouring what we have come to recognise as the classic delusions about us. And what are these :

The Importance of Detailed and Properly Completed Applications of Insurance

The Importance of Detailed and Properly Completed Applications of Insurance

Brokers and agents are intermediaries of insurance, it is their responsibility to be honest and provide full disclosure. They must pass on all vital information to the insurer. Failing to advise the insurer of some material fact can lead to serious consequences should a loss occur.
They have the professional responsibility to ensure the utmost good faith is held.

A written application is always wise to avoid misunderstandings and if the policy is to become part of the policy. Misunderstandings arise in the event of a loss. If there is a dispute and no written application, it would be the insured’s word against the insurers’. Should that go to court, the court would generally rule in favor of the insured.
A detailed application will also help in preventing fraud and misrepresentation. Should the insured lie in the application to be able to prove this, the insurer would need to prove this. The Insurance Act states that the insurer is required to prove there was misrepresentation.

What should be included in the content of the application?
The insurer will ask questions about:

Different Degrees and Classes of Risk Insurance

Different Degrees and Classes of Risk Insurance

Risk is a part of living and everyone is exposed to it. Discuss risk and show how there is different degrees and classes of risk. Use examples to illustrate your answer.

What exactly is risk? It implies both doubt about the future and the fact that the outcome could leave you in a worse position then now.
The basis of risk is the lack of knowledge and uncertainty. We don’t know what could happen five minutes from now, five months from now, or even five years from now; which is why we purchase insurance for anything that is insurable. We want peace of mind for something that is beyond our control, or unintentional negligence on our part, to protect our assets, loved ones and ourselves.

Risk comes in three types for both Individuals / families and for businesses:

Personal
Individuals: unemployment, disability, old age
Business: if the owner is unable to work, co-owner dies and the surviving owner can not buy out

Property
Individuals: things you own (clothes, electronics etc)
Business: the building, its contents

Short Essay on the Death of Socrates

Short Essay on the Death of Socrates

Upon being put on trial for corrupting of youth of Athens and “not believing in the gods of the state”, Socrates is sentenced to death for his wrongdoings. Socrates was viewed as “gadfly” to the city of Athens, and after a lifetime of “gadfly”-ing, many people of power in the city had had enough. Socrates’ views on many points of Athenian culture differed from the norm, and with every person he could connect with, the powers of Athens were further undermined. While the Law of Athens was manipulated to ultimately end Socrates’ life, he still, like many before him, had an option that could enable him to circumvent his demise. The Law of Athens was twisted to work against Socrates, and Socrates could manipulate it once more to save himself by paying the right Athenians who could organize his escape. Money was no issue; many of Socrates’ followers offered to put up the necessary coin for him to slip away. So all Socrates had to do was accept his friends’ offers and he could be a free man to continue his legacy elsewhere—Thessaly was suggested by Crito. Socrates’ politely declined the offers and ended up swallowing the hemlock.

Essay on Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Essay on Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Discrimination is all around us. It happened in the past, it happens now, and most likely will still happen in the future. But why are people discriminated? It could be because of their race, their gender, their religion, and etc. Of Mice and Men focuses on the struggles of two migrant workers, George and Lennie, in the 1930's as they try to achieve their dream of owning their own land. In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, he reveals through his characterization and conflict that loneliness is the result of discrimination.

Essay on Othello by William Shakespeare

Othello essay

Audience members will perceive a work differently and be drawn to different aspects of a work in accordance with their educational, societal and cultural backgrounds. The revenge tragedy, ‘Othello’, by William Shakespeare reflects the Elizabethan context and values including the role of fate, the importance of honour and the ability to have an ordered state. It is Shakespeare’s depiction of a tragedy instigated by jealousy and the downfall of a tragic hero, which is pivotal to the drama and action of the play. One way this work may be valued is from a psychoanalytical perspective, by an exploration of Othello’s psyche through the shifting patterns of imagery and Iago’s psyche through the irony in his soliloquies. Another way of perceiving this work is from a feminist perspective explored through the ambiguous presentation of women who are depicted through the eyes of male characters and Emilia’s cynical attitude towards the hypocritical nature of men.

Communication Essay - Is There a Relationship Between Communication Breakdown and Teenage Suicides in Hong Kong?

Communication Essay - Is There a Relationship Between Communication Breakdown and Teenage Suicides in Hong Kong?

A study reported in the S.C.M.P 22nd September 2001, entitled “Suicide Biggest Killer of Youth” showed a rise in the general suicide rate in Hong Kong. The study also found that the suicide rate among young people, particularly between the ages of 15 to 24, increased 39 per cent, from 9.6 to 13.3 per 100,00 people between 1981 and 1999. Although the rate was not particularly high compared with other countries, some experts believed that the increasing suicide rate is a sign that young people in Hong Kong are experiencing many problems, especially social, financial and psychological ones. Because young people are easily influenced by the media, they may think suicide is a way to solve these problems.

Paper on the Environmental Process of Coastal Erosion

The environmental process of coastal erosion has long been the subject of environmental management; particularly because it directly threatens human assets and wellbeing over relatively short time scales. Coastal erosion is significant because 44% of the worlds population live within 150km of the coast (Cohen et al., 1997 cited in Brommer et al., 2009: 181), and with it millions of dollars worth of trade, tourism, assets and business. Many environmental processes need thorough identification of ecosystem services, a process of valueation which often hinders the application of urgently required management. However, with the vast value of coasts already acknowledged, we can examine how well this has translated into investment in the form of research and response. This essay will explore past approaches to coastal management, and its effectiveness in addressing the coast as an open system with complex human interactions.
