Demographic Changes The united states is a rapidly growing "melting pot" of cultures and diversity, but over the past decade it has exploded into a nation with ever changing diversity, a widening wealth gap, and a ever increasing age gap. Immigration has always been a part of America's history, but the consistency of incoming cultures and the diversity they offer is always changing. In the 1950's Europeans made up half of the immigrant coming into the United States, while Asians brought in only 6%. Only forty years later immigration shifted the diversity of the land with more Asian immigrants than Europeans, as well as 4.3 million Mexican immigrants, and 1.4 Philippines, just to name a few (History.com). Immigration has affected the diversity of our church in the same way it has America. Today the church has welcomed people from all over the world, Madrid, California, New Zeeland and so on. Only fifteen years ago ninety-five percent of followers were Missouri residence but, with all the new additions, residence have become the minority in this Missouri based church. Not only has the diversity of the land changed but, a widening wealth gap has hit every age group, striking the 65 and older age group the hardest. Over the past twenty years the wealth gap between the 35-44 age group has steadily grown by 21% and will soon take the lead among all age group gaps (Martel, 2013). Judy Martel from Bizrate.com describes contributors to wealth as gains in the stock market and home equity (2013). Since our resent recession a lot of people have lost their stock market and home equity gains and have had a very hard time earning them back, especially in the housing market. A lot of our Missouri residents were affected by the recession and do not make much more than minimum wage, but there has been many new members who have come from all over the world, most of…...

Ethics Training Strategies - Task2 Part2 Hr - Rdjt

...Ethics Report – task2 Human Resources RJDT Strategies for ethics training on the job should be applied to all levels from temporary workers to upper management. There must be no basis for resentment among employees because of a real or perceived double standard of morality. The company itself must also model these standards to the public. Consistency builds credibility, a contrast to competitors and non-competing companies alike, who may not be as accountable to outsiders. “This stage involves the use of managerial, communication, administrative, and persuasive abilities to ensure the choice is carried out. The success of a decision is based on how it is implemented.” (Becker 2011) b.1 Strategies Mentoring will help employees learn better ways of applying the code of ethics and understanding ways it can help them be more successful on the job. Modeling is a natural extension of mentoring, since the company sees all employees as co-workers, and peer pressure is a useful tool for reinforcing positive behaviors. Forthrightness helps build trust. Accountability is an asset to relationships, and a good role model for employees following the code of ethics. Shifts power to the employee to determine how to apply the ethical standard and be responsible for the result. This is one factor in raising job satisfaction and performance, making employees see that every person’s actions count. When one employee sees another engage in ethical, code-conscious activity, there is......

...EGT 1 Task 2 A. Define the following three terms: 1. Elasticity of demand The responsiveness or sensitivity of consumers to changes in pricing of products is measured with elasticity of demand. The more reactive consumers are to a price change, the more elastic or simply elastic a product is considered. The less reactive consumers are the less elastic or inelastic the product is (McConnnell,Brue 2011). 2. Cross-price elasticity (include substitutes and complements) The change in demand in one product caused by a price change in another good is called cross price elasticity. The change in the price of one product or goods that causes a change in the demand for another product is measured on the x axis of the demand curve with the cross price elasticity (McConnnell,Brue 2011). Goods can be complimentary; such as a dvd movie (complementary good) that must be viewed with a dvd player (base good) or substitute; such as one brand of soup for another. When goods are complementary that means they work together, so the relationship in their use reflects in the elasticity of price in relation to each other by moving in opposite directions. When goods work in conjunction with each other, cross price elasticity is negative- meaning an increase in the price of one product causes the demand for the other to decrease and a decrease in the price of one causes demand for the other to increase. For example if the price of dvd players decreases the demand increases and the price...

...ENTERPRISE CONTINUITY PLANNING Responding to Attacks and Special Circumstances Continued Assessments During a Disaster By Charles Paddock FXT2 – Task 2 November 5th, 2012 A. Perform a post event evaluation of how the organization’s IT staff responded to the attack described in the scenario by doing the following: 1. Describe the nature of the incident. The nature of the incident was that an internal employee successfully hacked into the human resources, payroll and electronic mail systems. The employee was then able to manipulate payroll data, intercept emails and impersonate staff through electronic means. There were a number of techniques used in this attack such as network eavesdropping, IP spoofing, social engineering, man in the middle, and escalation of access privileges. All of these types of attacks are consistent with an experienced hacker who knew what he was after. The incident was only discover because of an auditor reviewing the records and noticed the changes. When the auditor notified management of the discrepancies via email his emails were intercepted and the hacker negotiated higher access privileges by posing as management and IT Staff. 2. Identify who needs to be notified based on the type and severity of the incident. The first call should be to the Security and IT teams to secretly verify the attack and prevent further escalation. In the case where you believe we have been hacked and you do not know the extent of......

...Supply and Demand The laws of supply and demand will be used to show relationships between supply and demand in given situations. A discussion will be given on elasticity of demand, cross price elasticity, and income elasticity. Followed by an example to discuss why demand tends to be relatively elastic where available substitutes exist. Then the “Proportion of Income Devoted to a Good” concept will be discussed by contrasting two products purchased. It will be addressed how the same percentage change in price affects the percentage change in the quantity demanded. Next, the “Consumer’s Time Horizon” concept will be utilized in contrasting a person’s response to large price increase in the short run and the long run. The graphs will be used to identify price range areas on the demand curve where demand is elastic, inelastic, and unit. Finally, the corresponding impact on total revenue for each of the three price ranges will be explained. Elasticity of demand shows responsiveness of change in price for quantity demanded. Elasticity of demand can be characterized as elastic, unitary or inelastic. Elasticity of demand is said to be elastic when change in quantity demanded do to price change is large. Conversely, when the rate of quantity demanded is small compared to price change it is termed inelastic. Refer to elasticity of demand as unitary when price change and quantity demanded move at an equal rate. The two will move together at a ratio of one. Cross......

...What is budget variance analysis? What is a flexible budget? A variance (difference between actual and forecast figures) is a signal to management that revenues or spending did not go according to plan. If the variance represents overspending, moreover, it is an indicator that there may be problems paying future expenses. Variance analysis attempts to find the reasons that actual figures were over or under forecast so that either  Corrective action can be taken to reduce variances in the future, (an exercise in static budgeting) or  Figures for future spending can be adjusted as necessary (the practice of flexible budgeting). Confusion sometimes arises in variance analysis because two different conventions for calculations commonly used.  Convention 1: Incoming revenue variance = Actual – Forecast Expense spending variance = Actual – Forecast This convention is used in this encyclopedia and in many organizations. Under this approach, a positive variance always means the actual result was greater than the budgeted amount.  Convention 2: Some organizations (such as the Project Management Institute), however, recommend using the above convention for revenue, but reversing the order for expense items: Incoming revenue variance = Actual – Forecast Expense spending variance = Forecast – Actual Under this convention, positive variances are always "good things" (more revenue or less spending than expected), and negative variances are always "bad things...

...RTT1 Organizational Systems and Quality Leadership Task 1 WGU ALLEN SMITH A. Understanding Nursing Sensitive Indicators Nursing sensitive indicators include the configuration, process and outcomes of nursing care. The configuration of nursing care concludes the nursing staff, their nursing skills, and the level of education that each nurse holds. The process of nursing care concludes the nursing assessments, intervention and implimentation. The outcome of nursing care either positive or negative depends on the quantity and quality of the care provided to the patients by the nursing staff ("Nursing world," 2013) Each nurse should hold proper information and knowledge of nursing care such as knowledge of pressure ulcers. In this scenario every nursing personnel should provide the ultimate nursing care in dealing with pressure ulcers. In order to prevent any pressure ulcer each nursing personnel should be aware of the pressure ulcer concept, their prevention and the correct technique of reducing any other complication related to pressure ulcers. In this case the nurse and the CNA should use their knowledge of preventing any pressure ulcer. The first action is to assess completely the patient for any sign of pressure ulcer such as any erythema or bruising. It is essential that the nursing staff know to reposition the patient and reasses the out of sight sites parts of the body for any sign and symptoms ......

...EFP1: Task 1 Cultural Backgrounds *Working Mother: I am a mother of an eight year old and I work at least 60 hours a week. My time is limited and my world revolves around my son. I feel very guilty for working so much and over compensate for it by being over involved in cub scouts as well as the PTA. I try and do everything and stress that I am not a good mother and usually push myself to exhaustion and then feel bad that I am tired. *Texan Most Texans consider themselves Texans first and Americans second. “Everything is bigger in Texas” isn’t an opinion it is a fact in the lone star state. I am proud to be a Texan and know there isn’t any better place to live. We fly the American and Texas flag at the house every day of the year. We named our business Lone Star Barbershop.

...Awareness of Culture and Diversity: EFP1 Task 2 Brittany Kennedy Western Governor’s University A. Introduction Meridian High School is currently the only public high school in the city of Meridian, Mississippi. MHS has approximately 1,400 students enrolled from 9th grade to 12th grade. Some of the most noticeable demographics of this school is, homosexuality, teen pregnancy, and the dropout rate. A1. Local Demographics Staff and faculty members treat homosexual students differently than they do heterosexual students. Some educators don’t agree with their sexuality, and tend to favor the heterosexual student more. Student homosexuality is an uncomfortable subject to handle in a classroom setting. Some teachers feel LGBT students disrupt the learning experience with their outburst and flamboyant behavior. There are also educators who take pride in maintaining respect for all students in the classroom no matter what their sexual orientation is. (Duncan) curtails that “Just because you’re intervening on a homophobic comment doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily trying to be an activist. You are just trying to make sure each child has a safe and supportive learning environment.” Teen pregnancy seems to be an epidemic this day in age. Mississippi is currently ranked # 2 in the U.S. for teen pregnancy. (Lewis, 2013). Lisa Silliman is the Teen Pregnancy Director for the Meridian Public School District. This program serves as the Teen Parent Academic Liaison. Mrs.......

...EFP1 Task 1 Thoughts on Cultural Diversity There are many aspects of culture and diversity. Culture is defined as the sum of attitudes and beliefs that distinguish one group of people from another. Culture is transmitted through language, material objects, ritual, institutions and art from one generation to the next. Diversity is defined as variety, the inclusion of individuals representing more than one national origin, color, religion, socioeconomic stratum, sexual orientation, etc. There are many aspects of diversity which include race, ethnicity, physical ability, age, gender, sexual orientation. The four aspects of diversity that have most affected my personal identity are race, age, gender, and physical ability. Gender is one of the most easily of observed areas of cultural diversity. As a woman, especially one living in the south, I am expected to look and act a certain way. I am to be presentable at all times. There are expectation in the way I speak but act as well. The way I am supposed to dress is also defined by our culture. There are certain jobs that I am expected to have and others I am not. The thing with culture is it not only is the visible images we are to portray there are invisible ones as well. Others assume that because I am a woman I am less than a man. There are certain ways I am expected to think as well. What people fail to realize is that I am a very strong willed individual. I am quite educated. I may live in the south now, but I was born......

...Introduction: As an information security professional, you are responsible for ensuring preventive information security controls are in place. Such controls include implementing organizational and security policies, processes, and other forms of preventive security measures. Scenario: During a routine audit of an electronic health record (EHR) system, a major healthcare provider discovered three undocumented accounts that appear to have access to the entire clinical and financial health record within the system. Further investigation revealed that these accounts were accessing records around the clock via remote access to the healthcare system’s network. Three remote access accounts appear to have been set up at least six months prior to the creation date of the first account in the EHR. Additionally, the accounts in the EHR were originally established as standard user accounts approximately two months ago and escalated to full access over the course of two weeks. System controls are verified to be in effect that limit access for each account to no more than 300 records per day. Over the course of the past two months it is estimated that more than 37,000 but no more than 50,000 records could have been accessed. Reports are being run to determine which patient accounts were accessed, but the reports will take more than two weeks to identify the record identification numbers and then take longer than 60 days to compile the usernames and addresses. An audit of other systems......
