Revised medical criteria for evaluating mental disoders

1. I pick the Social Security Administration for this assgniment, it is a federal government agency. Am interested in the Revised medical criteria for evaluating mental disoders proposal due to the fact that the Social Security Administration affect the lives of most Americans and proposed changes will impact many citizens. The proposed regulation will not affect me or affect my business, because am into car retailing business and the proposed Social Security regulation does not have direct impact on the retailing business.

2. A proposal to revise the criteria impairment listings used to evaluate mental disorders in adults and children pursuant to Titles II and IVI of the Social Security Act. This proposal also includes removal of certain sections of the regulations and include them in other sections of the Social Security Administration regulations. The reason for the proposed changes is the result of adjudicative experience and advances in medical knowledge recommended in a commissioned report and comments from experts of the field and the public.

3. As an uncle to a child with a mental disorder and this child is also receiving Social Security benefits, I am in agreement with the proposed changes. The revision stating that the Social Security Administration will recognize non-physician sources, such as therapists and social workers will be helpful in assisting claimants in the future. As stated in the proposed changes, these non-physician professionals provide a claimant's history and longitudinal evidence about functioning over a period of time. The needs of the mentally disabled in our society, is growing by the day and there is need for more provision for them from the Social Security Administration.

4. The deadline by which the public comment must be made is by 11/17/10 11:59pm EST.

... challenged by five legal parties, including the Arbitrary and Capricious Standard, the Substantial Evidence Standard, the procedures for rulemaking, the Constitutional Standard, and the Ultra Vires Standard (further discuss it below). b. If the proposal passes, identify and explain the five legal theories you could use in an attempt to have the regulation declared invalid and overturned in court.   First, the Arbitrary and Capricious Standard for Challenging an Agency Action. This standard is generally applied to informal rulemaking and simply requires the agency to show evidence to support the proposed rule. (Marianne M. Jennings, 2010) There is no evidence show that the needs or demands for importing sand pears from another countries, like China. The United States has a lot of kinds of pears providing to our citizens. And the importation of sand pears may bring 16 pests into the US and cause fruit safety problems. Second, the Substantial Evidence Standard for Challenging an Agency Action. Substantial evidence requires that more convincing evidence exist in support of the regulation than against it. (Marianne M. Jennings, 2010) The convincing evidence for importing sand pears from China is that the sand pears contain different nutrition what American pears do not have, has special effects for the treatment of certain diseases. Unfortunately, sand pears don’t have that kind of special nutrition, and it’s very similar with American pears. Third, the procedures for...

...Abuse in the U.S. College Composition 2 CM220-1107 Stephanie Singh In the United States, abuse is a huge issue that needs to be recognized. Abuse is one of the most under-reported crimes with such cruelty and so little is being done to put this matter to a halt. Children and adults should never have to be put through anything like this, and it is a shame anyone has to be a victim. Not many people look at the statistics of abuse and try to find ways to help those in need of help. The more people come together, the better this world would be. We need to reach out to our victims and prove to them there are places we can be safe. Sadly to say, we may never be able to put abuse completely to a stop, but we can help those who have to deal with this issue and make sure everyone knows that nobody is alone. In the United States, there needs to be systems, such as classes in schools and groups to better educate those who are or may become a victim of abuse. Thinking about all of the stories there are out there in our world today that we hear and read about, the number of inmates is quite low for this matter. In the United States itself, there are four-thousand five hundred and seventy-five prisons with 2.2 million prisoners. Only 1.2 percent of them are rapists or child molesters. “One in five violent offenders is molesters and only about 6 percent of rapists serve time in jail. Rape and child molestation is...

... proposed changes, these non-physician professionals provide a claimant's history and longitudinal evidence about functioning over a period of time. The needs of the mentally disabled in our society, is growing by the day and there is need for more provision for them from the Social Security Administration. 4. The deadline by which the public comment must be made is by 11/17/10 11:59pm EST. 5a. 5 USC 553 states that "each agency shall give an interested person the right to petition for the issuance, amendment, or repeal of a rule". The Aministrative Procedure Act does not state how the issuance, amendment, or repeal of a rule should be done but it gives the public an opportunity to participate in the rulemaking process. After the deadline for the comments has expired, the document will then be published in the Federal Register for additional comments which is usually a 30days period. These leaves room for the rules to be challenged in court by some of the people who commented on the rules during the proposal stage. After the comment period, the agency then decides if to simply adopt the new rules, to modify the proposed rules, or to withdraw the rule. 5b. Five legal theories that could be used to argue in an attempt to have the regulation dropped: 1) The first ground used to challenge an agency rule is to say that it is arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, or it in violation of other laws. 2) The second theory used to challenge an agency's regulation is......

...We will all face ethical dilemmas at some point in our lives and / or careers. The term ethics is not readily defined, but varies according to discipline. For example, philosophers define ethics as a study of morality, whereas health care providers might explain it in terms of meeting patient needs and owing a responsibility to the patient. We often examine ethical issues not with a specific approach, but rather with a “hybrid” approach, based on past experiences, our conscience, legal constraints, and social influences and pressures. Often, ethical issues touch on legal issues, or are regulated by laws and regulations. Laws or rules are usually established to set minimum standards for society to employ when dealing with others. The case of a woman battling for her life stirs controversy and becomes mainstream media worldwide. On February 25, 2009, 26 year-old Terry Schiavo was found by her husband, Michael Schiavo, after collapsing in their home (). She was believed to had an eating disorder known as bulimia, which can result in heart failure because of the lack of vitamins such as potassium(). Oxygen deprivation during the time of her collapse was believed to be the cause of brain damage, which doctors believed she was in a persistant vegetative state but not drain dead. However, the case sparks the medias attention eight years later when Terry’s husband Michael petitions to have his wife’s feeding tube removed whereas Terry’s parents contest Michaels petition to end her...

Daniel exhibits true leadership, conscientious by remaining steadfast in His faith, refusing to turn away from God or renouncing any part of His belief, relationship, worship, and service to God. “In whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king's palace." Daniel 1:4(Bible NIV) Daniels is the Costa and McCrae’s Five-Factor Model of Personality conscientiousness that has high scores in conscientious, hardworking, well-organized, punctual, ambitious, and preserving as stated in Theories of Personality by J. Feist, G. Feist, and T. Roberts on page 383. King Saul does not show the Five-Factor Model of Personality conscientiousness. King Saul did not place preserving faith in God, nor did King Saul trust God. King Saul placed trust in Himself by taking actions without seeking God’s will and guidance.

Feminist Legal Theory

...Introduction To call women the weaker sex is a libel. It is man’s injustice to women. If by strength is a man’s strength brute; then indeed is a woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is man’s power, as she has better intuition. Is she not more self sacrificing? Has she not greater endurance? Has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If non violence is the law of our being, the future is with women. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than women?’’ Mahatma Gandhi- Mind of Mahatma Gandhi, 1960 Feminist legal theory Women have been the core of discussions on the gender topic and still are, the question is if they will always be, when the ‘gender’ topic is discussed. This has happened and is happening due to the apprehension of the much imperative role that women are playing in society. The need to have women on a level playing ground as their male counterparts in the shaping of society has not been an easier task for the feminist theorists and still isn’t. Though, the little achievement seen today can’t just be swept under the carpet and be ignored to be. Feminist theorists have over the years championed for women’s rights through such paradigms as-sex/gender equality, public/private sphere of the women, and equality/difference between men and women. Still today with a slight vary from the patriarchal world, they can be said to be only ‘consciousness-raising’. The real triumph...

...------------------------------------------------- Guidelines for writing a MemorialParticipation in the Telders International Law Moot Court Competition consists of an oral and a written part, the memorials. Through the years, many teams have lost vital points on editorial technicalities in their memorials even though these memorials were of a very high legal quality. Considering the fact that the memorials make up 50% of the total score, a proper presentation of the written arguments, in conformity with the Rules of Procedure, is vital in a competition that is getting more competitive each year. Why such an emphasize on presentation? Is the legal reasoning not the most important issue in this competition? Certainly so, but every participant should realize that also in legal practice, solidly and neatly presented legal documents are a "must". A well-written submission, a logically built-up argument is easier for a judge to understand. He or she is more likely to pick up counsel's line of argument and, hopefully, its submission. Uniformly used editing rules make it easier for a judge to find the documents, referred to in the Memorials and it will be easier for him or her to read through the document in general. A well written and neatly and uniformly presented document will show the judge that effort is being put into the case. Combine that with excellent legal arguments and most judges will at least be willing to listen to your case with an open mind.Clarity and...

...Healthcare has reformed itself in many ways over the years; in the beginning doctors made house calls, surgeons kept the blood on their smocks to show their prestige. This gave way to patients being seen in hospitals and cleanliness promoting healthiness. Overtime caring for patients was not enough; safety and legal issues became apparent. Regulation in healthcare is a requirement now to keep not only patients safe but the organizations as well. The phrase “Common sense and compassion in the workplace has been replaced by litigation” is a statement I agree with. In personal experience when going to see a doctor, they are on such time restraint that it makes it difficult for them to properly treat their patients. Physicians have to adhere by their HMO’s, to be able to practice and have a business they have to follow rules set for them. Not only has it affected the employers but the employees as well. Shorter hours and greater demands have been place on employees in all kinds of business, laws and regulation has been put into place to protect employees’ rights. What should be common sense for people is not anymore. Every time a person turns on the television there is a story of someone suing another in healthcare from neglect during surgeries, unjustly being fired, or discrimination. Actions have been taken and agencies create to protect patients, employees, employers, and their organization against such acts. A few agencies that have been created are U.S. department of...

Sixteen percent of white adults, 44 percent of blacks, and 56 percent of Hispanic citizens are functional or marginal illiterates. Figures for the younger generation of black adults are increasing. Forty-seven percent of all black seventeen-yearelds are functionally illiterate. That figure is expected to climb to 50 percent by 1990. Fifteen percent of recent graduates of urban high schools read at less than sixth grade level. One million teenage children between t velve and seventeen percent cannot read above the third grade level. Eighty-five percent of juveniles who come before the courts are functionally illiterate.
