Primitive religion

please Read the uploaded text/ lecture note and use it to answer the 2 questions below. USE THE UPLOADED TEXT AND LECTURE AS YOUR MAIN SOURCE.

1)Read the text/lecture on Primitive Religion carefully. Next, identify and summarize three points from your reading. These points can come from one reading (the chapter from Fr. Roch or the lecture), or you can grab points from both. Identify the points and give a summary/explanation of each. After you’ve summarized three Points, Circle them back to your own experience. Why did you choose those points? Can you relate them to your own experience or anything you’ve read/hear/watched outside of class? How does the reading connect with you? The point of this exercise is for you to read the material carefully, provide a summary of what you’ve read to show your understanding of it, and express your thoughts and the connections you made. This segment should be a minimum of 2 pages

2) Given what you read/watched and your understanding of this tradition, how would Primitive Religion approach some of the important issues of our day? Of the 5 topics listed below, choose one to “tussle” with Primitive Religion. How would a practitioner of traditional religious belief approach the issue you chose? Your reflection should be a minimum of 2 pages. Choose one of the following topics:
-Ecology/the Environment (ex. climate change, care of the Earth, etc.)
– Poverty (ex. income inequality, feeding the hungry, social service/charity, etc.)
– Pop Culture (ex. poplar music – rock, pop, rap, etc. – movies, TV shows, social media)
– Human Rights (ex. refugee crisis, torture, war, human trafficking, etc.)
– Racism (ex. interracial relationships, race relations in communities, etc.)

EHRS

Answer the questions below:
What is interoperability and how does it support the use of electronic health record systems (EHRS) and health information systems (HIS)?

Healthcare Information System (HIS)
An information system is a combination of computer hardware and software that can process data into information to solve a problem. The terms healthcare information system and hospital information system (HIS) both refer to an information system used in a healthcare enterprise. Nurses use HISs in their daily practice.

A. Discuss in detail the two types of health information systems and include the different types of information systems included in each one.

Select three of the information systems you use to support your nursing practice. Provide examples.
B. Discuss how Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSSs) support knowledge representation in your nursing practice.

Provide at least two examples of the CDSSs you implement in your nursing practice. If you do not use CDSSs,provide examples of how they can be implemented in nursing practice.
C. Explain workarounds when using healthcare information systems. How can they improve patient safety and how can they negatively affect patient safety? Provide examples of workarounds you have implemented in your nursing practice using health information systems.

D. Include reference from the ANA Guide to the Code of Ethics (2015) textbook to support

Is racism predictable

https://embed.ted.com/talks/lang/en/nate_silver_on_race_and_politics
Please watch this short clip of Ted Talk to answer the prompt:)
Do you think racism is predictable? I personally do so you may proceed with that in mind.
Which factor mentioned do you think plays a larger part in the prevalence of racist attitudes: education level or geography/neighborhood? Why?
What do you think of the solutions to the problem of racism that were proposed in this talk?

SWOT

Choose one of the following countries ( Tajikistan, but open to a different choice of country and company) from the list below, obtaining information on the structure of economic, political, legal and cultural institutions in that country, and then create a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis for a real or  a hypothetical company that manufacturers and markets pre-packaged food products and/or consumer goods (think Kraft, Nestle, Proctor and Gamble and other large MNE in those industries). The analysis should be conducted from the perspective of a decision maker within the company looking at the potential of expanding into the selected country. For example, what would be some opportunities that Kraft would face by exporting their products to Tajikistan? Or what type of threats might Nestle face in establishing a subsidiary in Lesotho? If a real situation of a company MNE doing business in chosen country doesn’t exist, approach the paper as if it did.

 

 

Available Countries:

  • Asia: Tajikistan, Bhutan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan.
  • Africa: Lesotho, Burundi, Namibia, Burkina Faso.
  • South America: Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago.

Frankenstein

Exploring science fiction and questions of genre, representation, and theme through
Frankenstein: If we consider Frankenstein as the first impactful science fiction novel, then our
goal here is to explore and explain the ways in which the novel sets the scene for what science
fiction’s concerns have been ever since. Indeed, the novel is largely responsible for what we
now think of as the cliché of the mad scientist abusing science and its technological innovations
in the service of his own twisted design, which in this case involves creating (human?) life in the
laboratory. And packed inside this story are some of the main thematic concerns of science
fiction: how science and its technologies change what it means to be human; how we (re)define
what it means to be human in the face of those changes.
In looking at those themes, science fiction has concerned itself with ethical and moral questions
tied to how science and technological innovation should serve us and what the limits on them
should be as scientific “progress” continues to push us in often unforeseen directions and new
dilemmas or even disaster (ie. climate change, nuclear apocalypse, pollution, large-scale
hacking). But really all of this boils down to questions over what we could/should do with
technology and what technology could/should do to us. With that in mind, I have set up our
first midterm essay as a way to explore such concerns through a discussion of aspects of the
novel Frankenstein. I will want you to focus your essay around a particular issue from the novel
that most interests you, so I have outlined 3 possible ways to go. You are to choose one of
these to write about.
Choose one of the prompts below to answer:
A. Technology, Science and Man-made Humanity: While he has an unusual upbringing,
Frankenstein’s creature is made from human parts, he seems to feel a wide range of
(human?) emotions, and he can read and write and has educated himself through those
means. So is Frankenstein’s creature human? (To what extent? How so or why not?
What standards do we use to judge that? You might consider Victor’s humanity as a
point of comparison)
B. A Monster of Science? Another way to ask this: Is Frankenstein’s creation a monster?
(To what extent? How so or why not? What standards does the novel use to judge that?
You might consider Victor’s monstrousness as a point of comparison)
C. A Monster of Science? Is Dr. Frankenstein a monster? (To what extent? How so or why
not? What standards does the novel use to judge that? You might consider the
creature’s monstrousness as a point of comparison)

Role Strain and Burnout in Nursing

Write a 1000 word essay addressing each of the following points/questions. There should be three main sections, one for each bullet below. Separate each section in your paper with a clear heading that allows your professor to know which bullet you are addressing in that section of your paper. Support your ideas with at least three (3) sources using citations in your essay. Make sure to cite using the APA writing style for the essay. The cover page and reference page in correct APA do not count towards the minimum word amount.

* What happens to the nurse when role stress or strain becomes too overwhelming? What happens to patient care? How is this related to possible ethic and legal issues? Discuss how nurses can manage or reduce role stress and role strain.
* Explain two issues that lead to nurse burnout and discuss a solution for each issue.
* Think of an experience in your nursing profession where you either felt strain or burnout and how you overcame this event. (Since this is personal experience, you can use first person narration for this portion of your essay.)

Assignment Expectations:

Length: 1000 words; answers must thoroughly address the questions in a clear, concise manner.

Structure: Include a title page and reference page in APA format. These do not count towards the minimum word count for this assignment. Your essay must include an introduction and a conclusion.

Robots are taking our jobs

Research Questions:
1. Robots and new technology are tak
ing away jobs from human. In 2008-2010 Our government has
bailed out U.S. automakers to savemillions of jobs, not just factory workers but also dealership related jobs and auto repair related jobs. Should our governments intervene or stop robots and new technology taking jobs away from us? Should governments offer other alternatives to those who will lose job?
2. Minimum wage is going up. Fast food chains are starting us
ing machine (kiosk) to take order instead
of minimum wage workers? Should we stop technology from progressing? What is the overall economic
impact to the economy

Applied Topics: Economic growth, technology advancement and unemployment

Stages of Development
