British Journal of Radiology, 83(988), 79. With this article, it describes the pathology and etiology in the middle age with two diagnoses for tendinopathy, and colcinosis with pathology on collateral ligaments in the middle age. It describes the calcification within the fibular collateral ligament. It pertains to a 52-year-old man that was presented with tenderness and pain over the lateral aspect of the left knee. According to the patient, it occurred from a fall on the stairs and the twisting of the left knee. Some of the tests that were taken such as with a tomography showed signs of myofascial edema in the lateral soft tissue. The differential diagnosis stated that it could exclude acute ligamentous injury, fracture or infection and also after the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) it also excluded avulsion fracture. After concluding that the oral cortex was intact with a smooth contour their diagnosis was Periarticular calcification that could be determined from the MRI and CT scans. The other diagnosis was hydroxyapatite depositon with confirmed calcification in the fibular collateral. My concern with both of these diagnosis’s would be that if both found the same thing in the testing how can there be two different conclusions on what is occurring in the gentlemen’s knee . In...

...Journal Article Critique According to Bamberger, D. (2010)," bacterial meningitis in the United States remains a medical emergency with a prospective for high morbidity and death even though the annual incidences are declining. With the increased use of conjugate vaccines, the yearly occurrence of bacterial meningitis in the United States dropped from 1.9 to 1.5 cases per 100,000 people between 1998 and 2003, with overall death rate of 15.6%". The age, immunosuppression and neurosurgical procedures add to the like hood of infection from specific pathogens. In people with community-acquired meningitis, aseptic meningitis is a lot more frequent than bacterial meningitis. At least 96% of children with cerebrospinal fluid exocytosis have aseptic meningitis. In adults, the incidence of aseptic meningitis is 7.6 cases per 1000,000 people and most common etiologies are enterovirus, HSV, and varicella-zooster virus infections (Bamberger, 2010). According to Bamberger, D. (2010), "in adults with community-acquires bacterial meningitis, 25% have recent otitis or sinusitis, 12% have pneumonia, and 16 % are immunocompromised". Fever, neck stiffness and altered mental statues are present in 99% to 100% of patients with meningitis. Of the patients that have meningococcal meningitis 63 % of them have a rash that is petechial. Pneumococcal meningitis is more likely than meningococcal meningitis to be associated with seizures, focal neurologic findings, and altered...

Andrew writes the article as a graduate student at Fuller Theological Seminary pursuing a Master of Arts in Theology. In the exposition he presents a historical overview of the biblical inerrancy debate and reviews arguments concerning inerrancy of the bible as relevant to modern evangelicalism. Due to spatial limitations, Andrew restricts his focus to examining the views in support of and against inerrancy from four major perspectives: the slippery slope, epistemological, historical, and biblical arguments. Brief Summary The article is written as an exhortation for the promotion and defense of the inerrancy doctrine while warning against a universal acceptance of all supporting arguments. Andrew opens by defining inerrancy according to Paul D. Feinberg1, as well as Article XII of the Chicago Statement on Biblical...

THEO 510 LUO (Fall 2013) Survey of Theology Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary Jermaine L. Andrews (ID# 26089173) August 31, 2013 Table of Contents Introduction 1 Brief Summary 1 Critical Interaction 2 Conclusion 3 End Notes 4 Bibliography 5 Introduction M. Eugene Boring is Professor Emeritus of New Testament at Brite Divinity School. In this article, his target audience is the Christian community and his goal is to discuss Matthew’s Christology as theocentric, presenting God’s manifested presence in the life of Jesus. Boring goes on to show how Matthew’s Christology is expressed in a narrative of three stories. He says that this can be appreciated and appropriated better in the context of narratives in which contemporary interpreters are embedded.1 He does not subscribe to a particular story, but believes that the ecclesiology, eschatology, and ethics of Jesus are intertwined. They cannot be separated or summarized. For that reason, we are introduced to and come to know Jesus as Emmanuel, God-with-us. Brief Summary Boring begins this article by talking about Jesus and how he was sent by God as the promised Messiah. He mentions how Matthew uses three stories that bridges the gap between...

In addition, managers who communicated through pointing to specific ingredients or demonstrated how to perform specific tasks were more effective in leading employees to complete tasks. Positive feedback must be given even if it is expressed non-verbally, because smiles, head nods, and signs of approval were positively related to temporal performance.

Considering children and adolescence are our future, parents need to consider and monitor how these electronic games are affecting their child. There are more studies afloat that report the negative affects of video games over the positive effects until recently. Children and adolescents become addicted to video games easily so it is important to monitor what they are playing and how it is affecting them and their character. A recent study on many boys and girls reported why they are entertained by these games and how it affects them as a whole. Many children and teens in today’s generation have a favorite pastime of playing video games. It is easy for any parent to not like these video games and to blame their child’s bad behavior on them playing these games. According to the article, Children’s Motivations for Video Game Play in the Context of Normal Development, boys and girls enjoy playing video games for many different reasons. Regardless of the negative effects some have found video games to create, there are many positive effects that go unrecognized. “For some video game skill seemed important to their self-esteem, especially if they had less success in other areas such as academics or sports” (Olsen, 2010).

...Journal Review: Why God Became Man Kenneth Paul Watson II Liberty University THEO 313-D03 July 20, 2015 Critique Upon reading Why God Became Man, the author’s purpose becomes clear: to help the reader understand the incarnation of Jesus Christ and His purpose for doing so. The article goes into great detail in defining incarnation, how Jesus, from eternity, took human form, and His multi-fold purpose for becoming man. Strauss takes an orderly and focused approach to the article guiding the reader so that they understand the basis for incarnation and why Jesus became God-man. While lengthy, the article has logical structure and each point felt concise. The author demonstrated thorough knowledge of the Bible and of the person of Christ as he quoted multiple verses from both the Old Testament and New Testament to validate his claims. There were few assumptions as each argument became validated by scripture. Strauss failed to reference opposing viewpoints and arguments directly, but in a few instances generalized a couple of viewpoints that Christians have of the incarnation. For instance, when discussing the “steps in Christ’s exaltation,” instead of generalizing, Strauss should have provided direct opposing sources to help in strengthening the point. In reading the article the general purpose felt more to teach and explain incarnation as opposed to the defense of the concept, which may explain the lack of opposing viewpoints. Strauss used strong, precise...

..., . Journal Article Review Giles Sieburg Liberty University Article Review Summary The article that is to be reviewed is Critical Incidents in Practicum Supervision: Supervisee's Perspectives (Trepal, Bailie, & Leeth, 2010). This article must be understood in the context of what practicum experiences provide to those who are required by curriculum to attend. The article sets out to identify any quantifiable evidence about the factors of practicums that are helpful, and crucial for students to experience during that time. This study wants to isolate the positive qualities of practicums so that an informed student can take full advantage of this exposure to their career choice. Although the practicum is a unique exposure for a student and one can gain invaluable experience this article wants to focus on the impact that one's supervisor plays in the benefit of the practicum. Trepal et al. (2010) identifies that “extant research examining perceptions of the effects of supervision on development as counselors is scant” (p.29). Therefore this articles' impact seems crucial to the understanding how best to develop counselors in training. The authors seem to want to prove the hypothesis that good supervision is need for the maximum development of counselors. The article also spends time explaining and putting emphasis on critical incident technique as necessary part of the practicum experience that the supervisor is to provide. These...

Adhd Journal Article Review

...Journal Article Review by Madison Goodpasture Abnormal Psychology - 2230 December 9, 2015 Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental condition that affects ~5-10% of children with symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. While both children and adults can have ADHD, it is typically diagnosed in children around the age of seven. Along with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness, ADHD is also thought to lead to other behavioral issues including substances use/abuse and addiction. Since ADHD can continue through adolescence and into adulthood, it is important to learn if this disorder puts individuals at risk substance use. The object of one study conducted by Brooke S.G. Molina and William E. Pelham, Jr. was to clarify the magnitude of risk for early substance use and SUD in clinic-referred children with ADHD compared to children without ADHD. Their results were published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 2003, Vol.112, No.3, in their paper titled, “Childhood Predictors of Adolescent Substance use in a Longitudinal Study of Children with ADHD”. The research was performed by two distinguished psychologists, Dr. Molina and her mentor, Dr. Pelham, both of whom have significant experience in studying ADHD in children. The article reference section was lengthy and covered numerous topics of children behavior specific to ADHA issues. The authors themselves had several other publications included in the References.

Behavioral specialist teach their clients the skills that they need to improve on their personal social skills. Unlike other research methodologies, evaluation research is usually initiated by someone's need for a decision to be made about policy, program management, or strategic planning. It is important to understand the effects that a behavioral specialist has on the mentally disabled.

In ideal evaluation study situations, mental health service program staff, directors, funding sources, and all other groups that have a...
