East Side Community Assessment and Windshield Survey
According to Allender, Rector, and Warner (2014), public health is a combination of both an art and a science (2014). The mission of public health nursing is to promote health, prevent disease and ultimately prolong life (Allender et al., 2014). In order for this to occur an assessment must take place. An aggregate or community assessment begins with a collection of data. This includes: the community’s health needs, risks, environmental conditions, financial resources through local census data, and a windshield survey (Allender et al., 2014). Through public health nursing, communities can collectively come together to help

During the Community health rotation we had the opportunity to conduct a Windshield Survey in Warrenton, Virginia, a town in Fauquier County. Fauquier County was number eight in the United States Census Bureau list of the highest income counties in the United States. Despite this statistical data, while conducting the windshield Survey we were able to witness the prevalence of poverty in the community. At the 2000 Census, the population in Warrenton was 6,670, and by 2010 Census the population grew by 45 percent, to 9,611.

Tucker was a man of vision, which is a critical characteristic to have as a leader. A vision allows for a sense of direction, and a way to focus the attention of everyone associated with the organization. The need to achieve the same vision is why individuals in an organization come together and work as hard as they can in order to succeed. Tucker had the dream to build a car with many new features like air-cooled rear engine, disk brakes, independent 4-wheel suspension, an additional center headlight that pivoted left and right for better vision when turning, a padded dash, seatbelts, and a pop-out safety windshield. He wanted to sell this revolutionary car in an industry that had three Big Guys

The small community of Hasbrouck Heights, NJ is the one square mile home to a comparatively tiny population of approximately 7,600 people, including myself. I live on a residential street of this small suburban town where a great threat of danger and harm has never really been associated with its name.

The ongoing urbanization is changing the shape of mobility
in tomorrow’s cities. Especially in large and congested cities,
the need of owning a car is gradually decreasing with the
rise of new intermodal door-to-door mobility solutions. In a
recent survey by KPMG 1 , only 46 % of younger consumers
(< 25 years) rated that owning a car is extremely or very
important for them, opposed to 76 % for 25 to 35 years and
78 % for 35 to 50 years old consumers. For the younger

About 30 percent of respondents said they felt their safety was threatened in the last month, while 67 percent felt this threat during the last year. Weaving, tailgating, distracted drivers, and unsafe lane changes were some of the unsafe behaviors identified. Aggressive drivers are more likely to drink and drive or drive unbelted. Aggressive driving can easily escalate into an incident of road rage. Motorists in all 50 states have killed or injured other motorists for seemingly trivial reasons. Motorists

“John beat Mary.
Mary was beaten by John.
Mary was beaten.
Mary is battered.
Mary is a battered woman.”
Every one of these statements says the same thing, but as you move down, the language changes to hold victims accountable rather than their perpetrators. Placing the blame on women is something we do far too often, and if we want men to take responsibility for their actions, we need to place blame where it belongs.

Some people believe that schizophrenics are mentally handicapped, but the two conditions are entirely different. Schizophrenia does cause some cognitive problems, but does not affect overall intelligence. Schizophrenia occurs in people of all levels of intelligence and talent. Another myth is that schizophrenia is the same as a "split personality". Since the word schizophrenia comes from two Greek words meaning "split mind", confusion arose about the differences between schizophrenia and split personality.

Chemical equilibrium is a crucial topic in Chemistry. To represent and model equilibrium, the thermodynamic concept of Free energy is usually used. For a multi-component system the Gibbs free energy is a function of Pressure, Temperature and quantity (mass, moles) of each component. If one of these parameters is changed, a state change to a more energetically favorable state will occur. This state has the lowest free energy. When the free energy of all states are equal to each other, the system is at equilibrium. The Heat that is relased or absorbed during a state change absorbed is known as latent heat. For a binary mixture such as durene and naphthalene, the Clausius

Walter Benjamin emphasizes in his essay, “The Work of Art in the Age of its Technological Reproducibility” that technology used to make an artwork has changed the way it was received, and its “aura”. Aura represents the originality and authenticity of a work of art that has not been reproduced. The Sistine Chapel in the Vatican is an example of a work that has been and truly a beacon of art. It has brought a benefit and enlightenment to the art of painting, and it has an exemplary aura that cannot be replaced. A picture taken of the Sistine Chapel is just an imaged “captured”, while the painting is still original, because it is not movable, and its cult value is still intact. He asserts that

The theory of psychological egoism is indeed plausible. The meaning of plausible in the context of this paper refers to the validity or the conceivability of the theory in question, to explain the nature and motivation of human behavior (Hinman, 2007). Human actions are motivated by the satisfaction obtained after completing a task that they are involved in. For example, Mother Teresa was satisfied by her benevolent actions and activities that she spent her life doing. As Hinman (2007) points out, she was likely to reduce in activity if she experienced any dissatisfaction in her endeavors.

One aspect of folklore that has helped shape my family dynamic is the Celtic cross—both its background and what role it has played in our lives. The Celtic cross has an extensive history in relation to Ireland, but it has a simplistic meaning in my family.

Between 1885 and 1908, Belgium’s Leopold II ruled Congo, a region in central Africa, as his personal colony, exploiting the resources and inhabitants for his own gain. Leopold allowed and encouraged Europeans and other Westerners to enter Congo and set up companies whose primary purpose was to gather rubber, which was abundant but difficult to get to in the Congo, using the Congolese as the laborers for the Europeans. Rubber gathering in Congo brutally exploited the inhabitants of the Congo, while at the same time robbed Congo of wealth, as the rubber was “sold” to the Europeans at prices far below what the rubber was actually worth.

Usually when someone hears the word “lottery” the first thing that comes to mind is a large sum of cash that people compete against highly impractical odds to win. Shirley Jackson’s story The Lottery might imply a similar conception based on the title alone, but the story is filled with unknowns never revealing exactly when and where the story takes place, or why the lottery exists; even what the lottery is isn’t revealed until the very end. Yet despite Jackson’s omission of details in The Lottery, she manages to create an overtone of mystery that compels the reader to grasp the world of the story rather than define it in terms of the physical world and form their own opinions.

The system was a complete success, being as nobody had ever seen such a thing like it before. Baer’s invention of the Magnavox Odyssey was only the beginning of the advancements made to technology.

"I don't want to talk about whether or not racial profiling is legal. Racial profiling is not an effective law enforcement tool." -- Eric Holder, 82nd Attorney General of the United States
Before any argument can be made against racial profiling, it is important to understand what racial profiling is. The American Civil Liberties Union, defines racial profiling as "the discriminatory practice by law enforcement officials of targeting individuals for suspicion of crime based on the individual's race, ethnicity, religion or national origin"(Racial Profiling: Definition). Using this definition we can determine that racial profiling excludes any evidence of wrong-doing and relies solely on

As a Psychologist it may be expected that Mead’s conception of mind would place the person centre stage, however his interpretation of Behaviourist theory allows for the actions, and certainly the physiology of the individual to become a matter of external interpretation. Mead speaks of Qualia and experience (Mead, 1967: 5) in a way that seemingly looks purely at individual phenomenology. However whilst Mead initially seems to explore what the individual is directly acquainted with in the mental faculties the reasons may be wrapped up in a somewhat more objectively universalised study (Mead, 1969: 65) i.e. through behaviour. A single definitive answer to this question may initially seem to

These tests to do not measure a student’s ability to master a subject rather they measure aptitude which is ineffective.

Where does DNA come from? What is DNA? What is a Trisomy? DNA comes from our parents, we get half from mom and the other half from dad. DNA is two strands of nucleotide bases coiled into a double helix. The four nucleotide bases are Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine, and Guanine. Adenine pairs with Thymine and Guanine pairs with Cytosine. Each set has 23 single chromosomes- 22 Autosomes and one X or Y sex chromosome. (Massimini, 2000). “Your mother can give you only an X chromosome, but your father can pass on an X or a Y chromosome. If you receive an X chromosome from your father, the XX pair makes you genetically a female. If you receive a Y chromosome from your father, then your XY pair you're
