Week One Topic One—Scavenger Hunt

1 Scavenger Hunt

The Scavenger Hunt is designed to familiarize you with the myriad of tools provided by the University of Phoenix to assist in your success. For example, did you know that the University of Phoenix Library contains thousands of up-to-date journals, newspapers, industry reports, and research databases? This Scavenger Hunt will send you on a search to answer 14 questions similar to the following question:

Access the University Library page and select the Apollo Library Handbook. Open the handbook and go to the Company Directories and Financials section. Which one of the following databases is listed under that section?

1. Datamonitor Business Information Center provides detailed coverage of companies, industries, and countries. Included are over 10,000 country profiles, over 2000 industry profiles, and over 50 country profiles.

2. Investext Plus provides complete images in PDF format of analysts’ reports on a variety of industries and publicly traded companies. The reports found in Investext Plus can be used for access to detailed information about earnings, growth, market share, and other aspects of company and industry performance.

3. EIU® Viewswire® provides current coverage of political and economic trends in 195 countries. Risk analysis and economic forecasts are provided for virtually all nations. This resource is recommended for courses in economics and international business.

4. Business Insights, formerly known as Reuters Business Insight offers in-depth research reports regarding industries, marketing, and technologies. This database is recommended for courses in business and technology management.

The Auschwitz Daily

...The Auschwitz Daily KIPP Atlanta Collegiate | 4/6/2013 | [Edition 1, Volume 1] | The Auschwitz Daily KIPP Atlanta Collegiate | 4/6/2013 | [Edition 1, Volume 1] | Hitler Burns Knowledge “We live and breathe words. That is the reason that the Hitler wants to take away them. Jews have power through language.” “We live and breathe words. That is the reason that the Hitler wants to take away them. Jews have power through language.” Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germans burn Jewish books Adolf Hitler strikes again when he administered the law that there should not be any Jewish books or papers, because it would destroy the innocence of good Aryan Germans. The law was passed and confirmed yesterday at around 4 o’clock, and today marks the beginning of Hitler’s hatred for Jews. At 8 o’clock this morning, all Jewish homes were raided for all books and papers. They were piled in town square, ready to be burned. Many Jews stayed home, afraid of the Nazi power, but the few who stayed to watch their precious belongings burn to the ground shed many tears. Some of the men even tried to take over the Nazis, but were quickly shot down. One small girl named Liesel said she was devastated. She quotes, “It was books that made us feel that perhaps we were not completely alone. Words could be honest with us, and we with them. I spent my life folded between the pages of books. In the absence of human relationships we formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through......

I believe NT Daily can add more things to their Facebook to keep a relationship with their alumni’s as wells as their current students. One of the things I suggest is that they should provide individual information about all the different majors, so that way people will want to have them on their Facebook. Students want to know about changes or what is going on with their majors or career. Another thing they should add is quotes because, quotes are a big part of Facebook and more and more people are adding quotes to their Facebook pages. This will help keep current and formal students become more involved with NT daily news as wells as keeping them motivated. The last suggestion I would recommend is posting football freebies. Therefore alumni’s can have chance to win free......

Daily Weights

...Consistent Daily Weighing Important of Cardiac Patients Student’s Name Institution Consistent Daily Weighing Important of Cardiac Patients In almost all parts of the world, cardiac-related problems are one of the most leading causes of death (Windale, 2010). The term cardiac problems often connote a deadly disease, silent killer and/or a type of illness related to diabetes, stroke and coronary heart disease. Studies conducted reveal that chronic heart failure and other forms of cardiac disorders account for high hospitalization and high mortality rate (Bushnell, 1992). According to Windale (2010), the three most prevalent types of cardiac problems, which are based from the World Health Organization statistics, are in the form of diabetes, heart failure and coronary artery diseases. People from various countries suffer from this threatening problem, and it often manifests in the form of angina or chest pains. Windale pointed out that such disorder is associated with cultural lifestyle of various nations (2010). Patients with cardiac problems often seem to have lowered functional and physical impairment, decreased quality of life (QoL), increased caregiver responsibilities, especially during hospitalizations (Remme & Swedberg, 2001). Increased hospitalizations for cardiac patients are one of the results of the problem. However, compliance to intervention strategies often poses a greater problem for the healthcare community. Such intervention...

...Just think a second and try to decide who is the one that you love to at most. May be a second is not enough to reply this question, because this questioning might be different from person to person. Some can choice his/her son, daughter, some mother, father or the others sister or brothers. The answer of this question for she is her grandmother who was the one that she would not ever love to someone in the same way. She was the beautiful and kind person she has ever known and she will know. She was born in İstanbul on an April morning in 1992. She had a brother just half and a one years old. Both brother and sister were raised by their grandmother because their family members were working. The place that they were raised was underbelly because this home was the first property that they could buy; therefore, it was a cheap and close-range to their work place. She would ashamed of this home in coming years. Although there were not children that were same status and conscious with her, she were a friendly child, thus she made lots of good friendships in there. The aunt also loved her so much, but neither aunt loved her as much as aunt loved her brother, nor she loved aunt as much as she loved to her grandmother. She comprehended that her grandmother must be the angel that sent to her to carry herself. There were some nannies to look after her and her brother if the grandmother was tired or busy. Although she loved these nannies so much, they could not give her same love as......

Daily Mail Case

...Daily Mail (Case 81/87, 27 September 1988) Daily Mail was a tax-law case. Daily Mail plc wanted to move its de facto head office (tax residence) to the Netherlands because of the more favourable tax regime there, while at the same time it planned to remain a company subject to UK company law. The UK Treasury Department refused permission for the transfer of seat, which is necessary under UK law. EC law implications Because of the refusal of the UK Treasury Department to allow the transfer of the de facto head office, Daily Mail referred the question to the ECJ, whether Articles 43 and 48 EC Treaty preclude a member state from obstructing the transfer of the de facto head office from a member state. Decision of the court The ECJ concluded that this issue falls outside the scope of the Treaty provisions on freedom of establishment. Moreover, the Court added obiter dictum some comments regarding several conflicts of law questions. The Daily Mail judgment was recently confirmed by the Cartesio decision (see below). Centros (Case C-212/97, 9 March 1999) Two Danes established Centros Ltd under UK company law. The company was trade only in Denmark, however. The incorporators clearly stated that they had established the entity under UK company law solely to avoid the minimum capitalisation requirement for Danish limited liability companies. The Danish commercial registry considered this to be an unlawful circumvention of the Danish minimum capitalisation rules and so refused......

Our Daily Bread

...Our daily bread give a very good insight into the European food industry. The Documentary is really insane, because there isn´t any dialogue, no-voice-covers, comments as well as no testimonials just an immersion behind the scenes. The documentary is very interesting and I enjoyed the fact that there are no points from above are integrated because these things mostly tell you the way you should think. Due to this fact it was possible to use your own cogitation and build your own conclusions As you can imagine, it is a world of industrial food production and high-tech farming. The film producer tried to give a wide spectrum on insights. They showed a series of amount from farms, fields, salt mines and packing plants, to show naked truths about how the food many Europeans eat is harvested, slaughtered, quartered, and packaged. It seems really strange, but if you think at the modern consumer, the intention of the documentary is clear. In this case, we are all participants in a phenomenon that has been different designations from consumerist culture to consumer society. This means that people always want to consume more, and they find relevance and satisfaction in life, through the purchase of new consumer goods. Consumerism developed within a historical process that has created mass markets, industrialization and cultural attitudes that ensure that emerging incomes are used to purchase an increasingly output. But here is the question, what do we need? If everyone just by......

Daily Operations

...Daily Operations * The day-to-day operating procedures of a hospital change from venue to venue. However, an administrator can certainly expect to deal with management situations similar to managers in other businesses, e.g. caring for personnel, creating schedules, structuring the work environment, regulating care and managing finances or facilities are often some of the duties an administrator can expect to encounter in her daily routine. Fiscal Management :Financial manager is one of the most important roles a hospital administrator may have. This may include hiring personnel and ordering medical supplies. It may involve setting rates for health care services. The job might even include developing the financial framework by which new programs may be implemented or old ones expanded. Some fiscal background, therefore, is often required of hospital administrators, particularly in small hospitals where managers are expected to fill more than one specific role. Clinical Management: If a specific clinical area is understood well by a hospital manager, he may be given the role of the clinical manager of a facility. Clinical managers are important to the operation of a hospital as they can evaluate and make recommendations on specific departments, and have intimate knowledge of procedures that will allow for informed decisions. These individuals' responsibilities are usually more discipline-specific than what a more general hospital manager might expect to......

Jean Watson Daily Flowsheet

...Jean Watsons: Daily goals for Intensive Care Unit Ventilated patients Brea Blais Southern New Hampshire University Advanced Nursing Concepts Dr. Bladen May 13, 2015 Jean Watsons: Daily goals for ICU Ventilated patients An estimated 85% of errors occur in care when communication is not clear (Pronovost et al., 2003). When Nurses or doctors do not know how to properly care for their patients, then these patients cannot recover in an appropriate time frame (Pronovost et al., 2003). “At baseline less then ten percent of nurses and residents understand the goals of care for the day”(Pronovost et al., 2003, para. 2). After the implementation of a daily goals worksheet 95% of nurses and residents understood the goals of care for the day, length of stay was decreased, and other critical care patient problems were decreased. (Pronovost et al., 2003). Jean Watson’s human caring theory was the foundation of the daily goals, created in Johns Hopkins Hospital, in 2003. The daily goals sheet was developed in a 16 bed surgical oncology ICU to improve patient outcomes by improving communication between the members of the healthcare team (Pronovost et al., 2003). Transpersonal relationships and a caring relationship were used when creating the Daily goals sheet (Fawcett & DeSanto Madeya 2013). Daily goals were used in the ICU setting, with any patient population that may present to the ICU with an acute or chronic problem (Fawcett & DeSanto Madeya 2013). Content and format of...

The Daily Desideratum

...THE DAILY DESIDERATUM On a lazy Sunday afternoon , I got off the bus and walked up to a small cottage with peeling paint and faded curtains . A voice behind me asked “ Are you looking for somebody “?......... I flinched at the voice that broke the stillness of the environs . I turned around nervously and was shocked to see her “Grandma , what are you doing here ? And that too on a Sunday?” . Grandma has always been a home bound person, specially so after grandpa’s demise and never ventured out to meet people . “Well , That is a story . But what would bring you here ?” . She asked . her wrinkles twitching a bit surprisedly . “That is also a story . But you have to tell me yours first “. Her then pleasent face became pale for a second . Clutching the walking stick with both hands , she moved towards a worn out bench at the side and beckoned to me . I sat next to her , all ears to take in everything that she has got to say . But all I saw was her eyes fixed on the distant vastness . So it was easy to interpret what it was about . I took the initiative . “ So, who was he ? “ . Grandma gave a sly smile . Yes . So that was it . That was indeed an admissible grin . I convinced myself . “He was my penfriend . And he died yesterday...around this time” . I stared at her , quite confused at seeing her emotionless face that still didn’t break the focus.”I know why you stare at me that way . I have been an invisible friend to him for 30 years “. I let out a loud gasp . ”30 years ? ...

God's Activity in Daily Conversation

...God’s Activity in Daily Conversation Matthew E. Murraine THEO 201-D25 Dr. Easterling April 25, 2016 Thesis Statement: Since the interactive nature of God is communicated and understood through personal relationships, we are moved as Christians to emulate His being in our daily activities and conversations. * Introduction/Thesis * A Brief History of God’s Historical Activity * Prophets and Judges * The person of Jesus Christ * The Holy Spirit * God’s activity today * God’s activity is understandable * God’s activity is situational * Wonderful Counselor * God’s activity is relational * Life within our communities * Conclusion Introduction It would be difficult to attempt to confine the activity of God through the entirety of scripture to a brief explanation of His work. The effort He exerts is broad in scope and incorporates several modes of transmission. A casual passing over of scripture in any period reveals that God is sensitive to cultural trends. This quality further reinforces the entire redemptive process as He is continually on mission, striving to bring us into a loving relationship with Him. It should be noted that the forms of communication that Jehovah utilizes include elements of understandability, situational mindfulness, and relational development. His activity in the Old Testament provides many examples of this as well as the work and miracles performed through the......
