Coming from an ethnic background where there are high risks of long term conditions such as diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, this has encouraged me to pursue a degree in this course so that I can use my personal experiences, knowledge together with the UK government health protection, to educate and enlighten those at risk, people of all ages, both male and female and different backgrounds.
As a final year student on my BTEC in Health and Social Care, I am on target to gain better grades than my first year's performance which was affected by personal challenges. I have studied Effective Communication which has helped me to develop skills such as empathic listening, reflective listening and paraphrasing and has given me an understanding of how vital body language is. These skills are crucial because it will help me when speaking to individuals at risk because communication is important. Moreover this unit has helped me learn how to make conversations are able to flow effectively with service users. In addition the study of Development through Life Stages gave me an understanding on each life stage which will help me during the course, as I have a better understanding on the development each life stage. Studying Caring for Children and Young people, I learnt that the welfare of the child is paramount which gave me a deeper insight in the need to protect children and young people. I am currently researching female genital mutilation for my research project, which has given me an insight of the different types of abuse as a result the rights of young girls and women to be protected. I enjoy working with a team of people who are as motivated like my-self because it enables everyone to help each other and share ideas.
During my studies I have developed my public speaking skills through presentations and taking part in class debates. I…...

Mt300-28 Big Ideas in Science: from Methods to Mutation Unit 9 Final Project

...Running Header: Unit 9 Final Project Unit 9: Final Project MT300-28 Big Ideas in Science: From Methods to Mutation Professor Atkins Submitted by Paula Ahl October 1, 2012 PART I: SCIENTIFIC METHOD Each and every day, we are faced with having to make split-second decisions, and the need to solve random problems that we encounter. To reach those decisions and work those problems out you are subconsciously using the scientific method. Apply the five steps of the Scientific Method to two situations that could occur in your everyday life. Use the scientific method in the first scenario provided below to solve the problem at hand. Please come up with a second detailed scenario on your own and follow the same steps in the scientific method to find a resolution. Scenario 1: You arrive home late at night. You walk up to the front door, unlock it, and reach in to turn on the light switch located just inside the front door. The light does not come on! Now what? 1. Name the problem or question you are trying to solve. One evening I came home late, my husband and children were out for the night, I unlocked the front door, reach in to turn the light on and it doesn’t come on. I go back to my car for the flashlight. I need to identify where the problem is generated from. Why doesn’t the light turn on when the switch is switched on? 2. What is your background research? Check the neighborhood to see if electricity is out. Check to see if breaker has flipped...

B&B Chapter 28

...Chapter 28 MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING SYSTEM DESIGN Changes from the Twelfth Edition All changes to chapter 28 were minor. Approach A brief summary chapter seems to help students consolidate their previous topic-by-topic learning, and they appreciate such a chapter for final exam study preparation. The summary of the many different adjectives placed before the word “cost” and the concepts behind these adjectives is useful. However, because there is no conceptually new material here, one need not spend much time on the text. Rather, instructors can jump right into a discussion of one of the chapter’s cases, which is intended to raise issues that cut across multiple chapters. Cases Puente Hills Toyota raises many financial responsibility center, performance measurement, and incentive systems issues in a car dealership setting. Axeon N.V. illustrates the real world application of many management accounting and control concepts, including incremental cost analysis, capital budgeting, sensitivity analysis, transfer pricing, organization design, and control system administration. Case 27-1: Puente Hills Toyota Note: This case is unchanged from the Twelfth Edition. Purpose of Case This case can be used to motivate discussions of a number of topics, including financial responsibility centers, performance measurement, transfer pricing, and incentives. The setting is an automobile dealership, a business about which all students have some...

...Unit 1 Discussion 2 1. What main argument (or claim) does the author make? What contradictions (if any) does the author make in her argument (or claim)? What competing claims (points of view other than the main one the author defends) appear in the essay? The main point the author makes is to not just pass students through school, make them earn it. The contradiction to her argument is that people blame outside influences, such as drugs and divorce for those in high school not academics seriously. I notice a theme of needed to hold people accountable. 2. What viewpoints may audience members have that oppose the author's main argument? What evidence is there that the author anticipates these opposing viewpoints that her audience members might hold? How does the author defend her argument against those opposing viewpoints? Young adults going through school should not have it held against them for outside influences that affect their academics. The author does anticipate these viewpoints and addresses them. She defends it by showing that after high school, the world is waiting for you, and that it does not cut you any slack because you run into issues that could affect your performance. 3. What assumptions does the writer's title carry? They are a teacher and should be well versed in the challenges facing students. Being a night school teacher also gives the assumption that they are very familiar with the aftermath for the student that is just passed along in...

Mark 2:23-28

...“The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” Mark 2:23-28 Jesus and The Synoptic Gospels Dr. Charette 04/08/13 Mark 2:23-28 “One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. The Pharisees said to him, ‘Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?’ He answered, ‘Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.’ Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath” (Mark 2:23-28, NIV). Introduction This paper will focus on the passage stated above, specifically the last statement; “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” The Sabbath is a reoccurring issue between Jesus and the religious rulers. In this paper I plan to research the reason why the Sabbath was created, give an exegetical view on this passage, and show how we can learn from this teaching. The Sabbath The Sabbath was established when God created the Earth. For in Genesis 2:2-3 it says, “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of...

...UNIT LINKED INSURANCE PLAN (ULIP) Definition, Working principle, Comparison with Term Plan & Mutual Funds, Benefits & Shortcomings of ULIP, IRDA Guidelines of 2010 & their Impact, Summary DEFINITION * A Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) is a product offered by insurance companies that unlike a pure insurance policy gives investors the benefits of both insurance and investment under a single integrated plan. * This is an insurance policy that combines life insurance, with investing in the market. * As these investments in the market perform, the investor gets her returns. Several pension plans, child plans or retirement plans are actually ULIPs, in that they follow the same philosophy of investing money in the markets. HISTORY * The first ULIP was launched in India in 1971 by Unit Trust of India (UTI). * With the Government of India opening up the insurance sector to foreign investors in 2001 and the subsequent issue of major guidelines for ULIPs by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) in 2005, several insurance companies forayed into the ULIP business leading to an overabundance of ULIP schemes being launched to serve the investment needs of those looking to invest in an investment cum insurance product. WORKING PRINCIPLE * A ULIP is basically a combination of insurance as well as investment. * A part of the premium paid is utilized to provide insurance cover to the policy holder while the remaining...

...Southland, Chapter 27 & 28 Biographic Information: An English novelist born in Japan (1969- ), Nina Reyovr had been an Edgar Award finalist, and the winner of the Ferro-Grumley Award, and the Lambda Literary Award. She writes about racial justice of the past & present in the bestselling novel, Southland. Summary: [CH.27]: This is a story about an African American named Victor Conway, who lived in Watts or previously known as Mudtown, a small country village. The story takes place after the Japanese internment in 1942. After experiencing tribulations that came with racism in 1943, he left to Little Tokyo. He returned to Watts to reminisce what he had lost in a ghost town. The story starts out with Victor being newly married late of 1942 to Janie. He worked at a shipyard like most black men in the neighborhood. As though struggling through life with a dead end job and making ends meet with graveyard shifts was not bad enough, he was also under the oppression of white men. White people would constantly glare at him with discontent. He had to endure insults and the pestering of white people. In a community, where associating with blacks was considered more than a taboo, but a travesty; a white woman would try to seduce him, disregarding his marital status. He desperately tries to avoid her attempts because white men were breathing down his neck with fiery eyes. Her attempt to try to befriend Victor resulted in the white community’s punishment towards his love one. His...

Learning Team #28 Case Analysis

...1. There were many factors led to the eventual disintegration of Learning team #28. It was apparent that there was a growing dissatisfaction amongst members stemming from poor communication, disproportionate involvement in team tasks, and an evident lack of supportive leadership. Three major factors have been identified for discussion: the absence of the team’s constitution or a charter that clearly defined the team’s goals and processes, inadequate knowledge and skills amongst team members to drive the team’s performance, and absence of positive team culture and values. We explore each of these factors below and analyze how they contributed to the issues in the case. One fundamental misstep that resulted in the progression of issues in LT#28 was the lack of clearly defined standards for both the team and the individuals. With this oversight they failed to address several key components, including: individual and collective performance goals, identifying the roles of each member within the team, and establishing a set of procedures to ensure achievement of the desired results. This crucial organizational step was overlooked. During their first meetings, the team seemed to be enthralled with each other on a personal level and coincidentally made the common misconception that good personal relationships would translate into a solid team structure. The team bypassed the planning process and jumped directly into coursework. When the work started to pile up and pressure...

28 Prophecies Fulfilled

...” (Psa. 22:31). The Hebrew literally reads, “For it is finished.” Fulfilled: “Therefore, when Jesus had received the vinegar, He said, ‘It is finished.’ And after bowing His head, He yielded up His spirit” (John 19:30). 27) As no bone of the Passover lamb was to be broken (Ex. 12:46), not a bone of His would be broken. Prophesied: “He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken” (Psa. 34:20). Fulfilled: “Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first one, and the legs of the other who was crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs....For these things took place so that the Scripture might be fulfilled, ‘Not a bone of Him shall be broken’ ” (John 19:32-33, 36). 28) His burial in the tomb of a rich man was foretold by Isaiah. Prophesied: “By oppression and judgment He was taken away; and with His generation who did consider that He was cut off out of the land of the living; for the transgression of My people He was stricken? And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death; although He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth” (Isa. 53:8-9). Fulfilled: “And when evening was coming on, a rich man of Arimathea came, named Joseph, who was himself a disciple of Jesus. After going to Pilate, he begged to have the body of Je- sus. [Jesus would otherwise have been buried among the criminals.] Then Pilate commanded the body to be given over to him. And after taking......

... amendments to IAS 28 | 12 May 2011 | IAS 28 (as amended in 2011) Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures issued.

Unit 28

...In this assignment I will be explaining the main aspects of the main theories of ageing. These include; sociological, psychological and biological theories of ageing. I will then go on to compare 2 theories of ageing. Sociological Theories Sociological theories focus on the changing roles and relationships that accompany ageing. These theories discuss how these changing roles, relationships, and status impact the older individual's ability to adapt. In this blog, we will discuss the following sociological theories: disengagement, activity, and continuity. Disengagement Theory The Disengagement Theory, one of the earliest and most controversial theories of aging, views aging as a process of gradual withdrawal between society and the older adult. This mutual withdrawal or disengagement is a natural, acceptable, and universal process that accompanies growing old. It is applicable to elders in all cultures, although there might be variations. According to this theory, disengagement benefits both the older population and the social system. Gradual withdrawal from society and relationships preserves social equilibrium and promotes self-reflection for elders who are freed from societal roles. It furnishes an orderly means for the transfer of knowledge, capital, and power from the older generation to the young. It makes it possible for society to continue functioning after valuable older members die. Weakness: There is no base of evidence or research to support this...

Unit 28 – Business Project Management

...The best methodologies, in my opinion, for the Project Stock would be Network Flow Diagram and Project Software. Using Network Flow Diagram will help ShoeRUs to visualize and understand how the project will work and proceed. This diagram will also display the link with all the components of the project. (Network Diagram, 2015) One more strength of this methodology is that the format of this diagram will make it easier to determine the flow of the project, where the current project is in its lifecycle and also link of activities taking place during the whole lifecycle. The main aim of this methodology is to enable to create a diagram for the project broken down into smaller tasks which are important for completing the whole project. Another methodology is the Project Software. There are a lot of strengths that comes with this type of methodology. One of its strengths is that it provides the company to evaluate the direction that the project is taking. It also helps the company to revisit every task in the project lifecycle. By doing this, the company will reduce the costs and the time that will take to finalize the project being developed. It also helps the company to build the project as expected. (Miranda Brookins, 2015) For the Project Moving House, I will choose the Budget Methodology and the Schedule Methodology. The Budget methodology will help the family to control the costs of moving their furniture and other personal belongings to their new house. By using this...
