1. What is the best method of instructions in modalities according to practicing occupational therapists?
2. What are some of the barriers that prevent OTs from attaining modality specific training as a working professional?
3. What are the employer and state board expectations from practicing OTs for PAMs training?
This background information will help me determine if there is a need to have more comprehensive assessment of current state of occupation based modality training in entry level OT programs.

Vulnerability refers to genetic or environmental factors that predispose a subject to drug abuse. Anecdotally, it is clear that not everyone who uses cocaine is an addict. The spectrum ranges from experimentation all the way to full addiction. This leads scientists to ask which environmental or neurobiological factors influence cocaine sensitivity. Research has shown that the D2 receptor density affects the perception of Methylphenidate. In the Nadar et al. paper, the researchers observed baseline PET scans of twelve monkeys who self-administered cocaine. A significant correlation was found between theVIEW DOCUMENT

Thus, applied ethics today includes applications of philosophical theories and methods to problems in the professions such as law, medicine, and business, as well as to social problems such as world hunger, environmental issues, animal rights and sexual morality.

Abstract—A major challenge in wireless sensor network (WSN)
deployment is to minimize sensor node’s energy consumption
to prolong the lifetime of the finite-capacity batteries. Power
control is one of the main techniques used to conserve energy in
wireless sensor networks. In this paper we provide an efficient
power control scheme for WSNs based on Telosb platform
which is IEEE 802.15.4 standard compliant. Our simulation and
numerical results illustrate that energy spent to transmit a packet
