CJ411: Drugs and Alcohol in the Criminal Justice System
Prof:Elycia Daniel 07/25/11

For this paper we were required to do research and conduct an interview with a person from a treatment or prevention program in our community. As I was looking for programs I found that the Gateway Foundation had a facility near my area in Aurora, IL. The facility is located on the campus of the Provina Medical center which is one of the area's most prominent hospitals. The address is 400 Mercy Lane Aurora, IL 60506 and the phone number I called was (630) 966-7400. The name of the person I spoke with was Nick Turner. Nick Turner is an outpatient counselor for the Gateway Foundation in the Aurora facility.

The first question that I asked Nick was if he could give a brief history lesson about the company? He explained that the Gateway foundation is a non-for profit organization that is dedicated to helping people that are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. From the counselor I found out that the Gateway Foundation opened its first facility in 1968 in the Cook County area. Since then they have grown into one of the largest and most trusted providers of drug and alcohol abuse treatment services in the United States. During the interview I learned that Gateway has treatment centers located throughout Illinois and are expanding throughout the United States. From speaking with the counselor I could tell that he was really proud of the history of the company and that he is very dedicated to helping people make a difference in their lives.

The next question I asked him was what was the primary function of the program? He told me that the main mission of…...

...production and use is fundamental to our current way of life” (Environment Canada, 2011) We will be arguing in favour of British Columbia supporting the construction of the Northern Gateway Pipeline. Throughout our brief, we will provide several arguments reinforcing our position. In addition to the questions provided by the Hearing Panel, we found it extremely important and pertinent to address economic implications of the construction and functioning of the pipeline. For this reason, these elements will be discussed in Section IV of our brief. We chose to omit a couple of Questions of Analysis in favour of expanding on others that we felt were more relevant and necessary to our argument. We hold the belief that the potential benefits of the Northern Gateway Pipeline outweigh the potential costs; reasons for which will become evident in this written submission. Section II: Questions of Fact: Answered 1. Will the pipeline be running above or below ground? The vast majority of the pipeline will be buried up to a meter underground. The only exceptions will be select water crossings where it is safer to run the pipeline above the water crossing. (Enbridge Northern Gateway Project, 2013) 2. What is the lifespan of the project? The project will have a lifespan of 30 years (Enbridge Northern Gateway Project). 3. What is being transported in the pipeline? There are 2 pipelines. One is the oil pipeline and the other is the condensate pipeline. They will be......

...Language Development Interview Cytesse Street ECE 315 Language Development in young children Laura Carlee May 27, 2013 Q: What is the level of student involvement that you allow in the language acquisition process? A: I will allow students the ability to raise their hands, answer questions and participate in discussions. Even if they often get the questions wrong, I believe that allowing them to attempt the answers in the first place is important for their development and self-esteem. I would agree with this because I believe that kids learn from their mistakes and they learn from their peers as well. So getting the children involved is a plus. As our text states children need to learn on their own so that they can know how to learn. Q: How do you cater to what children already know about words? A: I often spend the first few days of every class surveying the knowledge that children already have about words. It does not take long to find out the particular strengths and weaknesses of students. It is my job to learn about those deficiencies and work on them. I would agree that we need to understand and know what the children know about words but also we need to teach them the comprehension about words as well to have a better understanding. As Piper states comprehension increase word production. Then after that we can teach the children how to categorize and understand the concept of these words. Q: How do you handle the jump from morphology to grammar in your......

...I choose to write my foundations paper on an organization that is based in my area that I live in, and although it is in my area it is not just a local organization but one that actually has the ability to span across the nation with support from local companies, as well as government agencies. The organization with which I am speaking is the Freestore Foodbank. I will go into the details of the non-profit organization in further detail in this paper. The Freestore began in 1971 by a man named Frank Gerson who worked in Cincinnati’s incinerator. He saw that there was too many household items that were being wasted when there were so many in his community that needed help. So this man quit his job, and started the non-profit business out of his apartment. By 1979 it had grown too big for his little apartment to handle, so he decided to get a warehouse to handle the sorting, and distribution of the food items for his community. Also at this time the Freestore became a founding member of Feeding America, which helped the organization evolve into the Freestore Foodbank. Today the Freestore is one of over 200 foodbanks within the Feeding America networks, which helps serve communities across the whole nation, not just in the Cincinnati area. They distribute over 19 million meals through a network of 275 community agencies. www.fsfb.org. This is an astonishing number of meals that are handed out to those that are going hungry, which is the organizations main mission. No one......

The interviewer did not make an introduction. The interviewer began the interview by talking to Pat about himself, the company, and his role in human resources. The interviewer tried to build a rapport with Pat and make him comfortable. However he could not answer most of the questions that were asked in the rapport building phase so the attempt was unsuccessful. The interview continued and Pat was asked general questions about the office’s atmosphere, the different departments, and the structure. He was asked to elaborate on the roles of certain individuals. At this point Pat revealed aspects of Jay’s personal life that was normal. Upon further questioning about controls and the processes Pat grew increasingly nervous.

...This was my first footstep of starting my degree life. First day of attending the Foundation of Business course, the feeling of tension filled me up. The main reason was because I have to adapt the new course and environment. This course is taught by Ms. Khor Siu Gek, an approachable and friendly lecturer. When I first glance over the module guide, this is quite a different course since it contains 100% coursework mark. In the first lecture class, Ms. Khor explained about what we are going to do throughout this course. The 100% coursework mark is divided into four categories which are portfolio, group project, essay on a given assignment and attendance. We need to provide evidence such as draft, notes and pictures as a proof to show the accomplishment of learning process. Some activities will be carried out in every tutorial class to ensure that students are participating in classes. Then, we need to express our feeling and provide relevant theories learnt in the reflective report weekly. This is to improve our learning skills, communication skills, time management skills and critical thinking skills. I can still remember clearly that Ms. Khor had made the introduction part became very interesting. She gave us a roll of toilet paper and asked us to take how many pieces we wanted to take. I felt nervous because I did not know what activities would be carried out. Finally, I took a piece of toilet paper. After that, she asked us to tell our secret according to the number of...

The Foundation...

...Joshua Lecour 15 October 2015 Essay #2 The majority of adults today have a stable home life, which helps to build a stable foundation by the time they reach grade school. That’s all in thanks to having loving and caring parents, grandparents and caretakers to guide kids so that they can preform at the highest levels in life, especially scholastically. In a perfect world having a solid system like this to build on would be the perfect catapult for success in America’s school systems. Unfortunately, most children in the inner cities aren’t blessed to have a stable home because of the absence of consistent parental figures in the house. Sometimes these households have one parent within them because of divorce or other more saddening circumstance like the death of a parent. Death leads to an absence within a child life that will persist into their adult life. Despite the timing or reason behind these situations they greatly affect a child’s confidence, self-esteem and self worth. Instability within the household causes a child to suffer anxiety disorders and self-confidence issues, depending on the situations that occur like physical or substance abuse by the parent, which is taken with them into the classroom. This kind of conditioning at home also shapes the ability to interact with other students in a positive or negative way, which also leads to poor academic and social standing within a school setting. The easiest way to remedy the issues of poor performance in school......

History J. Fithian Morgan Gentry Fithian. MW 5-615 Architectural History 14 December 2015 The Gateway Arch and the Washington Monument Two mesmerizing architectural pieces that Americans and tourists from around the world visit each year: the Gateway Arch and the Washington Monument. Four minds behind the wonders of the buildings that reside in top cities of the United Sates. Both constructed to perfection to represent important aspects of history, these monuments help represent the United States through architectural aspects. Born in Finland, but educated in America, Eero Saarinen is the architect responsible for the ideas resulting in the Gateway Arch, also known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. Wanting to steer away from working with his father, Saarinen, with fresh architectural ideas, wished to compete in a competition to design an outstanding piece to remember the spirit of the western pioneers. He won the competition in 1947-48. Tragically, Saarinen passed away to a brain tumor and, therefore, did not live to see the day when his famous arch would be built.

Strategic Staffing for Gateway Inc.

...Introduction Gateway, Inc. is a computer manufacturing company located in North Sioux City, South Dakota that has grown considerably since inception. The organization started in 1995 with the introduction of inexpensive personal computers developed by Ted Waitt and Michael Hammond on a farm in Iowa. The two partners decided to develop the business into a customer-oriented operation that focuses on providing the best possible products for the lowest prices. This idea was indeed a huge step in the development of the company because of the unexpected boom in the personal computer market during the late 1980's and early 1990's and the need for an organizational staff that would be required for the operation to grow. Gateway began its quest for skilled labor by initially hiring local personnel and providing training in the areas of sales, marketing, customer service, and technical support. It was the goal of the company to provide complete service to the consumer before, during, and after the sale of each and every personal computer. In order for the company to meet this goal, it was necessary to hire enough people to support the growth of the organization and this is when the hiring frenzy began. The organization advertised employment positions in newspapers and trade magazines hoping to generate enough responses to meet the demands of the growing sales and support operations of which the result were overwhelming. This paper is generated to describe the......

Gateway

...Recommendation In order to meet the stated objectives of four stops per hour and 5,000 deliveries per day, our official recommendation is that an investment in management systems will be absolutely necessary to achieve those goals. They simply cannot continue to achieve their growth targets with the incomplete system they have in place presently. CEO Claud Germain touts the company focus as one of logistical execution. An absolute requisite for excellence in logistics are analytics and support systems. Furthermore, Gateway as an e-tailer will need to enhance their purchasing systems and include mobile purchasing applications and software that further bolster the recommended technological improvements. Square is a good company to consider with iPad, iPhone, and android support built in with the hardware that attaches to those devices seamlessly. Dominque’s first option of extending driver shifts comes with a massive increase in potential problems. Having drivers on the road for extended periods of time provides the propensity for increases in accidents, mistakes in delivery and overall compounds the likelihood of human error to appear. The bottom line is tired and overworked drivers equal unsafe and unhappy drivers. This move would also require significant investment in staff support to ensure service levels would remain adequate. The second option was to bolster the RIMMS system to enhance the analytical capabilities to include profitability measures as well as......
