Archibald Motley, Junior was born on September 2nd, 1891. He is mostly known for his work colorful portraying African Americans in many activities in the 1920s and 1930s such as, dancing in nightclubs and social gatherings. Motley had a strong fascination with the variety of skin tones and he painted many African American women with varying blood qualities (mulatos, octoroon, ect.). With his focus on the variety of skin tones, it is said that Motley celebrated skin tones as something to be diverse and something that made the black community feel ore inclusive with one another.

Motley was actually a New Orleans native, but spent majority of his time in Chicago. With his family being the only black family in a predominately European neighborhood, plus his the type of social class he was a part of, Motley was able to benefit from art training at the Art Institute of Chicago. However, since he lived in a particular neighbor hood, it wasn’t one that was in touch with the actual black culture. Motley actually had to travel to the inner parts of Chicago to actually observe the high impact of jazz on the social, and cultural aspect of African American life.

Summary of the Key Facts in the Case In this case, Robert Archibald and Krista Archibald appealed against the December 6th, 2007 motion of summary judgment in favor for Cody Kemble. The root of this appeal occurred on June 2, 2003 at the Twin Ponds East skating facility in Lower Paxton Township, Pennsylvania. On that day, Robert Archibald and Cody Kemble participated in a friendly non-check league game of hockey. As opponents against each other, Archibald was going after the puck in the corner of the rink near the boards. While doing so, Kemble checked Archibald into the boards. The check caused Archibald to slam his hip into the boards, shattering his femur. This permanent injury led to multiple surgeries which required medical hardware to correct, constant pain and suffering, and loss of full use of his leg. Archibald was also informed that his injury may worsen. This injury has diminished his quality of life and also indebted him with $35,000 dollars in medical bills.

Due to the summary judgment ruling, Archibald and Krista Archibald have submitted an appeal to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. 3.

...Measurements of Quality Care in a Hospital Patients are the most important aspect of healthcare organizations. Without clients needing their services, healthcare facilities cannot function. Therefore, there are certain measurements of quality care that customers seek when choosing a healthcare facility during times of emergency and even an inpatient care facility. Quality of care can be broken down into three main categories, structural, process, and outcome measure (Bajnok, Puddester, MacDonald, Archibald, and Kuhl, 2012). The structural measures of quality are actions taken either by the organization itself, or by an individual that have significant influence on the overall quality of the organization’s performance (Bajnok, Puddester, MacDonald, Archibald, and Kuhl, 2012). Process measures of quality consists of the means of carrying out the work of the organization, while outcome measures of quality are measured by the results of the actions being performed (Bajnok, Puddester, MacDonald, Archibald, and Kuhl, 2012). In order for the quality measurements to be effective, it is necessary that they are able to identify complications, observe progress, and compile ideas to improve the quality of care (Cleven, Winter, Wortmann, and Mettler, 2014). There are several guidelines put in place for the development of quality measurements. First of all, in order to be effective, quality care measurements must be economically sound (Cleven, Winter, Wortmann, and Mettler, 2014). It is......

Early project management focused texts One of the earliest comprehensive texts on project management is Archibald's book: Managing HighTechnology Programs and Projects (1976). In it, Archibald explains the project life span as follows: The project life cycle has identifiable start and end points, which can be associated with a time scale. A project passes through several distinct phases as it matures, as illustrated in Figure 2.1. The life cycle includes all phases from point of inception to final termination of the project. The interfaces between phases are rarely clearly separated, except in cases where proposal acceptance of formal authorization to proceed separates the two phases."7 Figure 2.1 is actually a table, which lists five types of project and shows the typical activities for each in each of six phases. The six phases are sequentially: 1 - Concept; 2 - Definition; 3 - Design; 4 Development; 5 - Application; and 6 - Post Completion.
