Introduction Explain the issue you are examining and why it is significance

The issue we chose to examine is the possible connection between children with learning disabilities and juvenile crime. We feel researching the possible correlation between these two serious issues may help lead to more research of the topic and possibly prevention of juvenile crimes. Learning disabilities come in many forms the following are a few we have found through researching each of these disabilities has its own symptoms.
* Dyslexia,
* Dysgraphia
* Dyscalculia
* Dyspraxia (Sensory Integration Disorder)
* Nonverbal Learning Disability
* CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder)
* Visual Processing Disorder
* ADD or ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder)
* Autism
(http://drlindasblog.com/list-of-learning-disabilities/)
Add to the symptoms of these disabilities, the circumstances of life that some children face such as poverty, single parent homes, some are in foster care or group homes because their families can’t care for them, all of these things can contribute to the stress of the lives of children with learning disabilities which can in turn lead them to commit crimes very early in life. According to research done by the “National Center for State Courts”
* Between 30 and 50 percent of all "officially adjudicated juvenile delinquents" nationally are learning disabled (LD).
* Young learning-disabled males appear before a judge more than twice as often as non-learning-disabled males.
* Adolescents handicapped by learning disabilities are "at high risk for delinquency.”

We have researched several articles on this topic as well as conducting our own quantitative study. At the end of this study we will present our data in a way that…...

The nurses and physicians lack of knowledge about how critical illness affects the signs and symptoms of children’s pain Problem Statement The clinical problem eluded that there is little known in the pediatric intensive care (PICU) settings of the nurses knowledge of pain in critically ill children. It is known that the knowledge of pain and quality of care given for pain alleviation is relevant. Not much is known regarding the nurses clinical learning patterns. Nurses used judgments in measuring pain in a variety of ways and it was found that their clinical judgments came from different levels of understanding and diverse aspects of pain. These assumptions lead to the aim of the study: to elucidate patterns in clinical knowledge development and unfold the role of the nurse as facilitator in relation to pain management in the PICU. (Mattsson, Forsner, Castren, Bolander Laksov, & Arman, 2012, p. 109) It is known that working in a PICU that nurses rely on each other and what they perceive as pain in a child may not be actual pain. Overtime clinical knowledge is developed with different encounters with patients and their families. The nurses need to focus more on their individual learning practices...

...Week Three Team “C” Business Equal Pay Paper RES/351 October 12, 2013 Instructor: Fredrick Ohanesian Business Equal Pay Paper Many years in the pass, it has always been known that the pay scales or opportunity for men and women have been unequal in favor of men. There have been many reasons for the indifferences but none of them have been proven to be true. It is only now that it has become an issue for business due to the government regulations have now made it an ethical issue that has to be addressed or a business can be fined or shutdown if found not to be within the government standards. So the research question then becomes why management or companies continue to try to justify the need not to be regulated when it continues to be a problem within many organizations. Based on the history of this nation it was determined back in the 60’s that there were evidence that pay and benefits differences for women in similar jobs was not equal. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 and reinforced later with the Lilly Ledbetter Act of 2009 which has given the government the tools to address the problems for businesses for now and the future. It stated that if male or female or in a similar job with the same set of skills required to perform it the pay and benefits must be the same. If there is evidence of sex based wage discrimination within the same company or organization the employee or government can open an investigation to see if any equal opportunity laws have been violated...

Preparing to Conduct Business Research: Part 1

...Preparing to Conduct Business Research: Part 1 As a large organization there will be a numerous amount of issues being faced on a day to day basis. The organization must be able to come up with successful solutions to fix these issues in order to keep the customers satisfied and prevent loss of revenue. One issue with a cable company that provides products and services by appointments is constantly running late and missing appointments. The company schedules appointments to resolve the customers issues, but the main issue is that the company does not make it to the appointment on time or never shows up at all. The company should take drastic measures to keep the commitment of going to the customers home in order to provide excellent customer service. It is imperative that this company finds a solution to this issue because there are a large amount of customers being inconvenienced every day due to the late and missed appointments. In the scheduling process of the appointments the company tries to make each customer happy by giving them the date they are requesting. With this being the case the days ends up getting overbooked. The company allows an overbooking percentage of up to 103-105% for the load. While the company is giving the customer the date they want, essentially they are pushing other customers out of the load. There are managers assigned to each state and those states are broken down into different regions i.e. north, south, east, west. It is the...

Now the company is in the process of changing their culture, as it has discontinued its traditional catalog sales, and created a profitable internet shopping site. The issue that J. C. Penney is facing includes dramatic losses in sales, profits, and stock value. They recently hit a 55 week low with their stock value. They have brought back a former CEO Myron Ullman III to make some changes which does open the door for some new possibilities as well. They are currently making changes by closing 33 stores that have been underperforming to make up some of those losses and project that to make some significant differences.

This software program is definitely needed and I believe that all parties involved will be pleased with its results. Scope and Purpose Georgia Department of Transportation Outdoor Advertising (ODA) is a department that allows companies to build billboard structures along the State of Georgia’s Right of Way. The application process is a two-part tedious process that includes a 7-page application for a Sign Permit and a 16-page application for a Vegetation Permit. Both applications require several other pages of documentation as well. Currently the process is based on a lot of paper pushing and the department would like to make it web accessible allowing applications to be uploaded on line for review including the capability for applicants to make all payments online also. Currently everything is submitted via the mail or walked into our office.

Research Critique, Part 1: Nursing Attrition

...Research Critique, Part 1: Nursing Attrition Grand Canyon University: Nursing 433V 11/22/2015 The Problem Statement This study seeks to know the reasons why nurses are leaving clinical nursing. The current and future nursing shortage is a huge concern. This study was done because the author feels that there is very little research pertaining to nursing attrition. And this is important to know and understand. Because knowledge and change can occur when it becomes known what the factors are that influence nurses to vacate clinical nursing. The bulk of this study was interviews with nurses who were no longer considered to be nursing in a clinical setting. The nursing workforce projections in the U.S indicate that the shortage of nursing could go above 500,000 RNs by 2025 (American Association of Colleges of Nursing [AACN], 2010; Cipriano, 2006; U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2002). The rate of vacancy was greater than 8% in 2008 (AACN, 2010). It seems astonishing to know that 30-50% of new nurses choose to either find a different position or they decided to no longer practice as a clinical nurse within their first 3 years after graduating from nursing school (AACN, 2003; Aiken, Clarke, Sloane, Sochalski, & Silber, 2002; Cipriano, 2006; Cowin & Hengsberger-Sims, 2006). This is an important study because by knowing and understanding the reasons for nurses leaving the clinical field of nursing, we can work towards making improvements, and...

Rosa Osuoha Preparing to Conduct Business Research: Part 1 Organizations are faced with making business decisions every day and not all are easy to resolve. Business research provides companies an opportunity to make knowledgeable decisions to remain competitive in the market place, attract and maintain talent in their workforce, as well as make a positive contribution to the organizations bottom line. The use of technology in todays’ business has proved to allow organizations to stay in better communications with their customers, remain with or ahead of their competition, and innovative in their respective fields. Those that have not been able to embrace and keep up with the vastly changing needs of their customers seemingly have struggled to exist. How do companies know what changes to implement? How do changes to meet customer needs effect the different lines of business? What impact will the changes have to the organizations bottom line? Once the organization has identified a problem, they must then determine what steps need to be taken to find a solution. Business research is an important step to understand the options for resolution, benefits and consequences of a solution and mitigate as much risk as possible. Describe Issue Stress. Nervousness.

Itt It255 Research Project Part 1

...Brian Gobrecht IT255 Project Part 1 The domains of an infrastructure are broken down into several parts. The User, Workstation, LAN, LAN-to-Wan, Remote Access, Wan, and System/Application domains. All of these are a very crucial part of a domain structure and if one fails to do its proper job most of it or all of it will come to a screeching halt. The User Domain is pretty self-explanatory yes a system can do without a user but by itself it’s more probable to breakdowns and other things to go wrong. So to help the user out in a way it’s not damaging to the infrastructure. One way is to have the computer scan for viruses in anything that plugs into the usb slot such as a portable hard drive or a memory card. As for unauthorized downloads such as music or photos I suggest enable content filtering. Workstation domains are another vital part of keeping the system healthy at most times. To protect this I suggest either at the door of the server room keycards to get in and at the workstation itself both a physical and pass worded approach to ensure the right person is getting in. And to add further measure of security the room would be camera surveyed and users will be logged. A LAN domain can be a very volatile domain with all the wiring and NIC cards and LAN switches common in most rooms. If we are to hopefully secure this part of the domain I would like to be able to restrict access to the computers and laptops that are only necessary to the work environment. So if...
