...Chapter 2 Strain energy functions The aims of constitutive theories are to develop mathematical models for representing the real behavior of matter, to determine the material response and in general, to distinguish one material from another. As described in the preceding chapter, constitutive equations for hyperelastic materials postulate the existence of a strain energy function W . There are several theoretical frameworks for the analysis and derivation of constitutive equations, for example the Rivlin-Signorini method where the governing idea is to expand the strain energy function in a power series of the invariants, or the Valanis-Landel approach expressing the strain energy directly in terms of the principal stretches [115]. In this chapter, we make no attempt at presenting these methods but instead, we present some classical explicit forms of strain-energy functions used in the literature for some isotropic hyperelastic materials. Many other models have been proposed (for example, a collection of constitutive models for rubber can be found in [32]). 2.1 2.1.1 Strain energy functions for incompressible materials Neo-Hookean model The neo-Hookean model is one of the simplest strain energy functions. It involves a single parameter and provides a mathematically simple and reliable constitutive model for the non-linear deformation behavior of isotropic rubber-like materials. Its strain energy function is W= µ (I1 − 3), 2 (2.1) where µ...

... characteristics of successful marketing organizations. The third annual IBM State of Marketing Survey 2012 provides precisely this kind of insight. The 2012 survey results deepen our understanding of marketing practitioners’ level of technology adoption and maturity managing the customer experience. Unlike earlier surveys, this year’s has a larger analytic canvas. The 2012 survey’s global reach includes respondents from North America, EMEA and, for the first time, practitioners from Asia Pacific and Latin America. The survey also included some questions from IBM’s groundbreaking Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) study “From Stretched to Strengthened: Insights from the Global Chief Marketing Officer Study 2011” to determine whether there are any differences between how CMOs and marketing practitioners understand their opportunities and challenges. Lastly, the survey evaluated whether a high level of financial performance suggested greater adoption of marketing technology and more sophisticated management of the customer experience. For this evaluation, we asked respondents to self-identify their level of financial performance relative to their industry peers and then applied their responses to a select group of questions. When the results came in, three important trends became clear. In order to meet the challenges posed by new technologies and maximize the success of their organizations, marketers must expand their role in leading the customer experience, remove silos and...

... don't know any better. The motto is "I can do what I want, and if something happens, a doctor can fix it". Right? Wrong. Doctor's don't fix. They hide symptoms. They drug you up so you don't feel anything. They cut out infected body parts and give you poisons to try and kill things. If you break a bone or cut off a finger- they put the bones and finger back in place and hope your body will heal it. Doctors don't heal you- your BODY does the healing. Ask a doctor what caused a disease and they probably won't have a clue. If you had a disease, wouldn't you want to know what caused it so you could stop doing it and make sure it didn't happen again? The irony of the whole thing is we are "too busy" being in a hurry to be healthy or happy. We are so worried and concerned about racing the clock to get things done, that we are actually cutting our lives in half. We're trying to be efficient and save time, but in reality we are doing the opposite. If someone told you you would live twice as long, wouldn't you start to take things a little easier ? Wouldn't you take a little time to become healthier? Well that's exactly the case. The body you have been given is designed to live to at least 125. The bible and many other religions even say that. Bulgarians live to be between 105–125. A man in India just died who was 146. So my first message to you is- there is no need to hurry through your day. You have a long life ahead of you. People- you live longer by slowing down! The longest......

Healing Hospital

...A Healing Hospital Yashate Manning GCU Spirituality in Health Care HLT-310V Pauline King January 27, 2013 A Healing Hospital Love and compassion, along with providing services to others is just a few components of a healing hospital. Often time the hospital is where patients are at their weakest state, both mentally and physically. This environment is a place where diagnosis and treatment of illnesses are implemented with the use of pharmacologic and technical means. It’s vital that the focus remains on the patient as a whole; therefore the physical and spiritual issues must be equally addressed. Patients could be placed in a defenseless circumstance upon admission to the hospital; therefore they may feel a sense loss of their personal freedom or dignity. The patient is the main focus of care and love is at the center of a healing hospital (Chapman, 2011). A Healing Hospital focus on compassion and skill accompanying the use of new technology and drugs aimed to enhance patients’ outcomes (Chapman, 2011). Healing hospitals consist of staff that’s highly skilled, knowledgeable, caring, and showing of much empathy to the patients they serve. It’s evident that love, an essential component of a healing hospital, according to Chapman, 2011 “ a healing hospital is built on the ancient tradition that love is at the center of healing”. The patient’s spiritual condition is a vital part of their overall medical state and requires careful assessment at all times...

Office Technology and Management: a Catalyst for Students' Self-Reliance

...Office Technology and Management: A Catalyst for Students’ Self-reliance. ABSTRACT This paper discusses office technology and management as a catalyst for students’ self-reliance.  The core of the paper is that when students who are considered future leaders are empowered, it subsequently leads to the social, economic and political growth and stability of any nation.  Office technology and management formerly known as secretarial studies is proffered as the catalyst education for students’ self-reliance based on all spheres of human endeavour.  It guarantees prompt and decent employment for students who have competent secretarial skills.  Students, after graduation could also go entrepreneurial to establish small-scale businesses of different types. INTRODUCTION In the national development equation, education remains the fulcrum upon which other indices of national development revolve.  It is no doubt, that office technology and management education is one of the disciplines that train students for self-reliance and self-sufficiency.  The level and quality of education collectively attained in a given society determines the extent to which other factors of development are exploited for the advancement of that society.  Office technology and management creates awareness, develops the potentials in man to subdue and harness the resources in his environment for the betterment of himself and his society. Education according to Boladele (2002) is a process of acculturation...

...Healing Hospitals: A Daring Paradigm Anna Hernandez Grand Canyon University Spirituality in Health Care HLT-310V Richard Hudock July 27, 2014 Healing Hospitals: A Daring Paradigm Spirituality and religions, effects on health has become an increasing interest to scientist since the 1980’s. According to Smith (2006), spirituality has gained such a momentum that there are multiple articles and several textbooks on spirituality since the year of 1989. The consensus is developing that spirituality and religion are closely related to physical and psychological health and that spirituality and health are an important focus in nursing research (Smith, 2006). Spirituality, however, has many definitions. The majority accord that, it is defined as the manner by which persons seek meaning in their lives and experience transcendence-connectedness to that which is beyond the self (Smith, 2006, p. 41). Spirituality has two dimensions and is a highly complex concept. There are two components of spirituality that are generally described. The vertical, which describes the transcendent, is the connection between a patients (inner body) or something outside such as, a higher power or the divine (Smith, 2006). The horizontal component relates to the connection between persons. This consists of individual and social support that are, set in, the spiritual context by religious setting and spiritual relationships (Smith, 2006).

Box 589, 33101 Tampere, Finland 2 Received 22 March 1999; accepted 21 July 1999 ABSTRACT: Using a two-stage emulsion polymerization method, a series of poly(methyl methacrylate-acrylonitrile)/poly(ethyl acrylate-n-butyl acrylate) [P(MMA-AN)/P(EAnBA)] latex interpenetrating polymer networks (LIPNs) were synthesized by varying AN content, ratio of network I/network II, crosslinker content, and introducing chain transfer agent. The damping properties of the LIPNs were investigated using a Rheovibron Viscoelastometer. The results indicates that a suitable content of AN can improve the damping properties of the LIPNs. Three kinds of fillers were incorporated into the LPINs, respectively, to measure the change in the damping properties. Mica and TiO2 both increased the damping properties of the LIPNs over the wide temperature range. For TiO2-filled LIPNs, it was observed that the tan values exceeded 0.4 over 112.6°C temperature range from 50 to 72.6°C. © 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Healing and Surrender: Two Different Ways of Coping with Emotional Impasse and Self-Induced Isolation

...Healing and Surrender: Two different ways of coping with emotional impasse and self-induced isolation Compare and contrast essay Student Number: T00557209 Assignment 3 ENGL 1001 Nir Light July 20th, 2015 “Death by Landscape” by Margaret Atwood and “To Room Nineteen” by Elizabeth Lesser are both stories of self-induced isolation, in which the protagonists are unable to expose their predicaments to the people around them. Lois, the protagonist in “Death by Landscape,” isolates herself due to the traumatic disappearance of her childhood friend, Lucy. Suzan, the protagonist in “To Room Nineteen,” is trapped in an emotional impasse caused by conforming to her roles as wife and mother, and being reasonable and intelligent, unable to express her true feelings. While Lois surrounds herself with landscape pictures, and finds a resolution in them, Suzan’s isolation progresses, until she surrenders to her predicament and ends her life. Despite the different ways they resolve their predicaments, both protagonists find relief in their choices. In “Death by Landscape”, Lois is traumatized by Lucy’s disappearance and by being condemned wrongly for causing her death. Enveloped by her trauma, she lives her life in emotional detachment from her husband and children. She can hardly remember getting married or nursing her boys (35). Wilderness provokes her trauma, and she avoids it. She does not expose her predicament to people in her social circle, and they think she purchases...

... thought my job was but in many ways, my patient would not still be restored to wholeness. I have experienced heartbreak with patients with mental illness who have recovered or become stable in their mental illness, fighting their way back to health only to find their spouse or partner has had enough and wants a divorce. I can see both sides of the issue but have empathy for my patient who has suffered so much only to be thrust out of wholeness once again by the action of others. What I learned in medical school was how to cure the body. What I've learned in practice from my patients is that the body can not be fully restored to health without there being healing of mind and spirit. It goes the other way too - I have seen sickness of spirit have a profound effect on physical health. If all of this healing work was only the purview of the physician / healer, it would be overwhelming! Self-healing is part of the process. Helping patients who are ill means supporting their own self-healing capacity and allowing the process of healing to move in whatever direction serves the spirit / soul of the patient. It almost never turns out the way I would expect. I'd want the couple to stay together because I know social support is important for healing. I'd want to have the medication work and for the patient to live. But I've also found and have been able to support my patients in seeing that sometimes in the face of what seems like failure or loss or pain, there is a...

...Lizzie J. Smith Module 1: Assignments Healing Hospital: A Daring Paradigm HLT- 302 Spirituality and Christian Values in Healing Care and Wellness Sunshine Weeks Eric Chapman, founding president and chief executive officer of the Baptist Healing Trust in Nashville, Tennessee, envisioned a healing hospital that would cover not only the physical aspects of healing but the emotional and spiritual components (, n.d.).  My work will describe the healing hospital paradigm and how spirituality influences this paradigm. In addition, barriers to the Healing Hospital paradigm will be discussed along with Biblical scripture that supports compassion in the health care system. The healing hospital paradigm it focuses on the removal of stress and other health risks in the hospital environment for both patients and visitors. . The healing hospital paradigm it involves in healing the whole client (Young & Koopsen, 2006, p. 4) instead of just curing the disease. This emerges from the paradigm’s focuses on healing beyond the body physical: it aims to enhance the overall well being by addressing the patient’s and their families’ cognitive, emotional and spiritual concerns (Milstein, 2005). A healing hospital goes beyond windows, walls, and mortar. Its strong culture of love and caring is what sets it apart from traditional hospitals (Chapman, 2010, p.15)... The concept is to supporting a strong culture of caring for their patients and caregivers...

... the twentieth century then began to be taken over by business interests. That in turn changed hospitals into businesses that were responsible to boardrooms and shareholders. At that time the practices of spirituality and compassion were replaced by the move toward financial gain. We now have resurgence in concentration on the patient and the totality of patient care. The current buzz words are Healing Hospital, Radical Loving Care, and The Golden Thread of Healing. 
Healing Hospitals have specific components that comprise their makeup. They are” 1) A healing physical environment, 2) The integration of work design and technology. 3) A culture of radical loving care” (Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, n.d.). These three components intermingled with spiritualty makes up the basis for the healing hospital. 
The first component speaks of a healing environment. This is an environment that is restful to the patient and the patient‘s family. There are no overhead paging, no sweepers going down the hall at night, promotion of a calming stress free environment for staff and patients to connect with their internal spirituality. The implementation of something as simple as a relaxation garden or massage treatment can go far in helping a patient rejuvenate so that they can move forward. 
The second component is integrating work design and technology. Examples of this are the use of back hallways and patient only elevators to transport patients in an attempt to keep their privacy and self...

Healing Hospitals

.... The skylight system not only provides in-room entertainment and health information specific tailored for each patient, but also allows patients to fill out periodic satisfaction surveys, allowing caregivers to obtain immediate feedback (Childers, 2008) – again, this promotes the person-to-person interaction that is at the center of healing. By utilizing the most current technology and medical techniques available, health care workers at a healing hospital are able to more than adequately provide a healing environment. Finally, the third and most important component of a healing hospital is fostering a culture of “Radical Loving Care.” Erie Chapman, the founder of the Baptist Healing Trust who is also credited with leading the establishment of the very first healing hospital, first espoused this philosophy. At its center, radical loving care is a commitment to compassion; it is “an outflow of an inner reality of love, kindness, peace, patience, goodness, self-control, and joy” (Childers, 2008). By embracing this philosophy, healing hospitals are able to develop a strong culture of compassionate care. Radical Loving Care promotes the healing of patients through a holistic approach that meets not only patient’s physical needs, but their emotional spiritual needs as well. Again, the quality of interpersonal interactions comprises the center of radical loving care. Everyone is treated with sensitivity and dignity, and the hospital community as a whole meets their needs; when...
