Kgh Observation

...Synopsis: At 3:50pm on Saturday October 20, 2012, I traveled to the main lobby of the Kingston General Hospital (KGH) in Kingston, Ontario, located at 76 Stuart Street, to conduct observational research by examining and recording consumer behavior in a natural setting. This report includes a detailed description of the people and behaviors I witnessed, in addition to inferences that I made based on my observations. What time and day of the week was I there? How did this affect my observations? The time and day that I chose to conduct my observation had a number of effects on the results. First, there were likely more hospital visits occurring on Saturday than there would have been if I had conducted my observation on a weekday when most people are at school or work. Second, I can imagine that the lobby was less busy in the afternoon than at noon, yet busier than it would be if I had conducted the observation early in the morning or late at night. Third, I did not see anyone in the lobby consuming any food items and instead, observed a number of people drinking coffee or other warm beverages. I assume that I would have seen more people eating if I had visited the lobby at breakfast or lunchtime. The afternoon is also a common time for people to have a coffee to offset afternoon doldrums. Last, I noticed that the majority of people in the lobby were wearing warm, casual outfits, which may have differed if I had conducted my observation earlier in the day when it...

...The name of the store that I chose to observe is Marshalls. They specialize in bringing brand named clothing for discounted prices to your entire family. The Marshalls store I chose to observe was the one located at 7506 W. Broad Street, Merchants Walk in Richmond, VA. When I went in to do my observation, I did it first as a shopper but as I walked around, I eventually turned into a customer. Before I went in, I knew that I wanted to buy something but I did not know if I was going to find something. I chose this organization because I had been in there before so I knew that they would have something that I may like. Another reason that I chose this organization is because every time I go in, I am greeted with a smile and a “hello”. They treat their customers as if they know them personally. I observed an associate that was in the children’s department. I was in that department because I was looking for some clothes for my 7 year old male cousin. As soon as I walked over there, she smiled and asked if there was anything she could help me with. She stopped what she was doing and helped me walk around and pick out different outfits for him. While I was in there, I observed how even though she was busy helping me, other customers came up to her with different question. Instead of her ignoring them, she asked me if she could help them and return to me. This was one of their policies to help any customer whenever they needed it. I also observed how she listened to......

...Bsma Tolfree Unit 1 Individual Project Scientific Method May 1, 2011 OBSERVATION: During the winter, you spread salt daily on your driveway to melt the snow. In the springtime, when the lawn begins to grow, you notice that there is no grass growing for about three inches from the driveway. Furthermore, the grass seems to be growing more slowly up to about one foot from the driveway. QUESTION: I wonder if the grass growth is inhibited by salt? INTRODUCTION: Salt is a chemical compound (NaCl), or Sodium Chloride. Sodium Chloride has many uses in everyday life, such as in our bodies, in our food, and on our road ways. Having two elements, Sodium and Chloride, each have a number of jobs to do in our bodies. Salt is found in many of our foods naturally, from fish to vegetables, as well as being used for cooking and at the table. Also salt is used all over the world when it snows to prevent slip and falls and car accidents by it being sprinkled on sidewalks and road ways to melt the ice. When salt hits water or ice it lowers the freezing point in an effect known as freezing point depression and melting it in the process. According to (greenergreengrass.com) salt can also affect the pH of soil and can create an unsuitable environment for grass and plants to grow. HYPOTHESIS: The grass that gets exposed to more salt will not grow as much as the grass that gets exposed to little or no salt. PREDICTION: If the grass is exposed to salt then it will not grow as fast...

...Observation The student is considered a novice as an observer of children. The student observes children to gain practice and understanding in child development. Students have an obligation to protect children and respect school personnel. Observers are usually visitors in the classroom. The observer must keep in mind that they are a disruption to the regular processes in the classroom and they should respect the classroom teacher’s direction. The protection of the child’s rights in any type of child study is important. Regardless of the procedure used to collect information, the child’s protection is paramount. The child must not come to any harm (physical or mental) through participation in the observation process. Confidentiality must be utilized at all times. Talking about children and families with others outside of class or with the classroom teacher is prohibited. Please use fictitious names in written reports. Any concerns about a child’s safety should be addressed immediately with the classroom teacher or other responsible party. Observation tells us about children’s behavior – what they are doing. If we want to understand children’s development in school settings then we should observe them in those settings. Observation that takes place in a natural environment is referred to as naturalistic observation. Qualities of a Good Observer: · Recognize personal bias and preconceived assumptions about children. · Stay focus for a long...

...Every day, people all over the world travel to different places out side of his or her home. He or she will encounter many different types of people and different experiences. When this happens, the opportunity becomes available to observe his or her surroundings. I wanted to do the observation experiment at a place I find to be very interesting, it was a Tattoo Shop. This was a place that I felt was on the same standers as a mall and it was also a place that I visited and thought that it would be interesting to observe the people in my surroundings. At the tattoo shop, people of all walks of life come for different personal reasons. Some people came to get a tattoo because they lost a love one and wanted to honor his or her memory. Some came to get a tattoo because he or she loved the art, and some people were there just to support some one else. As I sat in my chair doing this observation, I listen to a young lady who came to the Shop with her friend. She stated that she was there to get a sleeve done on her arm. If you are unfamiliar with what a sleeve is, it is when a person gets a tattoo that goes from the shoulder area down to the wrist area of the arm. This young lady was there getting something that she felt meant something to her. She was getting a picture of a clock with the saying “Only Time Will Tell” drawn on her arm. As I listen to her talk with her friend I could see the sadness in her eyes as she tried to joke with her party. After she was serviced, the...

... the fences down but I heard they were going to make it a museum) Some people were dancing so I assumed there was live music playing somewhere Different food trucks were advertising their products Cherry blossom were falling due to it being a little windy Everyone respectfully minded their own business and didn’t cause trouble for others. Cherry Blossom Festival The purpose of this observation assignment was to investigate and interpret the different types of interactions between the individuals and groups present, as well as the environment in which these interactions take place. Every spring, I look back on my life memories; I relive how my entire family on my mother’s side always goes shopping at producer-only farmers market near the festival. This area I'm attending to is completely different than any festivals & it has a lot of history that I haven't researched on yet. It begins on the 14th night of April 2014; standing outside, it was warm and unusually bright. Unexpectedly, I am distracted by this awful scent & I couldn't identity what it was, praying to a God that can allow this smell. I had no choice but to abandoned the area. I quickly took my navy blue 2006 civic to the Tidal Basin that is beyond the Gallaudet University area. When I arrived the area was mysteriously loud rather than normal. And I know I shouldn't sit here typing with my back to the car door when I have so carelessly left it wide open in such a notoriously dangerous neighborhood...

...Observation Number Two The purpose of this observation is to observer an adolescent of either sex between the ages of 12-18. I have chosen to observer an adolescent male age 18. This was a little difficult to do because adolescents are guarded with regards to adults, it just happened that this was made easier when the adolescent knew me from church and the choir. I will begin with Jacob who is 18. Jacob grew up with his parents in forest hills, PA, also with Aunts and uncles and his maternal and paternal grandparents still living. When you look beyond the surface of the family life of Jacob you will see a different person when Jacob is at home compared to when he is at church or school. At both of these places Jacob is allowed to be more of an adolescent then when he is at home. With certain requirements of his mother and father to help take care of his younger siblings while both parents work two job and also work later than most parents.

...According to Piaget Cognitive Development Theory (Berk, 2003, p.133), this child is in the preoperational stage (2-7 years), and he behaves normally. When the father left he was upset. His mother asked him to sit still in one of the chairs. He was lying in an arm chair, moving his legs up and down. Then he put his feet on the armrest of the chair next to him, where his sister was sitting. He repeated this behavior several times in attempt to hit his sister. That made his mother tell him off. However, he still didn't respond. Then he put his head on the seat and lifted his feet on the back of the chair, and he started to stomp his feet. He then tried to get down to the floor head first. His mother told him to stop, but he didn't, so she sent one of his elder sisters to pick him up and put him in the chair in the right way. He repeated the same behavior and again his mother failed to make him stop, so she sent the other sister to pick him up. This time his mother warned him not to repeat that, so he stayed in his chair for a few... View Full Essay Join Now Please login to view the full essay...

Ece Observation

...Observation Samantha Evans EC310 June 21, 2015 Barbara Sheats Observation Tuesday, June 16, 2015 Tricia’s Sunflowers, Perry, UT (In-Home Daycare) 9:30 – 11am In this observation, I will refer to the child with a hearing impairment as B. When I first stepped into the room where the child with the hearing impairment was, I immediately noticed a few things around the room that were put there specifically for her. There were flashing lights right next to a clock and there were pictures of ASL signs next to written signs in the room. Right away, I could tell the teacher in this room really took the time to see what she could do to assist in communication. This room has six children, all between the ages of 3-5, and B is the only child who has a hearing deficiency. B wears a hearing device, a cochlear implant, to help her hear better and understand the other children. Although she is encouraged to keep the device on at all times during school, aside from nap time, B will take off her device if she is upset, needs quiet time, or is not feeling well. I arrived just as the children are beginning their morning group session. The teacher in this classroom, Ms. Tricia, knows ASL because she taught her children ASL when they were babies and toddlers to assist in communication. During morning group, as the teacher is talking, she is also signing to B who is sitting in the front and center of the group. It is interesting and heartwarming to see the other five...

...Social Workers support service users from the range of the life span from infant to the elderly. In order to best support service users it is important to be aware of developmental stages and trends in order to fit care and support for the people we work with accurately. Erikson states that if a person does not transition from one developmental stage to another effectively this can cause problems in later stages and create a sense of fixation. Children develop in different stages and in different ways. A method that has been used to explore these developmental milestones is observation. Observations involve watching a child for sometime in order to understand how he or she perceives and interacts with the world. attributes physically, cognitively and socially of two children, one male and one female, ages five and ten, respectively. This writer will identify the socio-economic status (SEC), age, gender, ethnic background, and family demographics of each of these children. The two children this writer has chosen come from similar living situations (i.e. they both live with single mothers), but have vast differences in their physical, cognitive, and social development. This paper will examine Erik Erikson's Eight Psychosocial Stages as explained by Dacey, Fiore, Travers (2009) in an effort to explain the noticeable differences in the two children that this writer has chosen to observe. These two children were chosen because they are both being raised in a single parent...

Game Observation

...Game Observation After watching the game on Sunday, there are some key elements that stick out to me not only from a fan standpoint but also from a coaching standpoint. Every coach over the last 10 super bowls is obviously successful but there have been 2 coaches that have won multiple super bowls and 3 coaches who have appeared in multiple super bowls; these men are Bill Belichick (3-5), Tom Coughlin (2-0), Mike Tomlin (1-1). These men are some of the most successful coaches in the NFL and what makes it interesting in my opinion is none of them ever played professional football. They are students of the game and have learned a lot from coaches they previously worked with. Belichick and Coughlin were both assistants under the future Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells and have both found much success. Tomlin’s accolades include being the youngest coach ever hired and to ever win a super bowl. All three of these coaches each carry with them a distinct coaching style; Belichick is more of an ass-hole type coach, while Coughlin and Tomlin are more fearless leaders, with Tomlin being more of the silent reserved type. But all 3 are well-respected, successful, and driven coaches for their teams. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Coach Tom Coughlin and see myself most in his style. And finally I have to say something on a personal level that has continued to be a topic of the super bowl every year. And that is its hard being a Cowboys fan. One major thing I’ve realized not......
