Intergenerational Transmission Theory Intergenerational transmission theory can refer “to the movement, passage, or exchange of some good or service between one generation and another” (“Intergenerational Transmission”, 2003). In essence, this refers to the way a family interacts, which may mean passing down any kind of a belief, ethically values, attitudes or behaviors (“Intergenerational Transmission, 2003). Intergenerational transmission could also refer to families handing down family roles from generation to generation. An example of such a family role is a family business. A family could own a car lot that has been in the family for generations. The family member who currently is in charge of the business may decide to retire, and hand down the business to another family member. Researchers have studied families, and the impact that marital problems may have on their children. Marital issues may result in dissolution and divorce, which may be difficult for children to cope with. Researchers have linked dissolution, and divorce to the children following in the footsteps of their parents, who are most likely to experience a dissolution or divorce in their lifetime (“Intergenerational Transmission”, 2003). Parents who have multiple marriages also increase the chances of their children as adults have multiple marriages (“Intergenerational Transmission”, 2003). Parents having multiple marriages produces negative effects on their children, which may lead the children to having unstable marriages that do not last as long as the marriages of individuals in which their parents did not divorce (“Intergenerational Transmission”, 2003). Adults may emphasize the importance of family values, but if the values are not portrayed with high importance, the children will not think of the values as being as important as they should.

Synaptic Transmission

...Running Head: SYNAPTIC TRANSMISSION Synaptic Transmission Grand Canyon University PCN 310 Synaptic Transmission They can proceed in several ways, both presynaptically and postsynaptically. They can influence how vesicles issue neurotransmitters, how neurotransmitters are cleaved/reuptake, they can hinder receptors, destroy receptors, and agonistically join to receptors which mimic the neurotransmitter. These are a few. Synapses are vital to the function of the nervous system. The most of the synapses in the nervous system in vertebrates are chemical synapses, where chemicals are utilized to transmit data between cells; although there are furthermore some electric synapses. The units in glossy musculature and cardiac musculature are electrically attached through gap junctions which are exceptionally large protein passages forming membrane pores expanding from cell to cell, endowing little substances and ions to move without coercion between the units Synaptic Transmission (Lytton 2002). But regardless, the most of the synapses in vertebrates are chemical. When a nerve impulse comes to a chemical synapse, neurotransmitters, which are pointer substances, are issued from the nerve terminal and diffuse to the membrane of the target cell. The unfastening of these passages can either stimulate or inhibit the electric undertaking of the target cell, transmitting to the cell nearer or farther away from its threshold grade for lifetime of an activity promise (Bear et al.......

Wireless Power Transmission

...Abstract As (Vallone, Thomas, & Vallone, Jacqueline, 2009) observe, the area of wireless power transmission s but an undeveloped area of study. Many a promising applications have been posited for this area, owing to the fact that t provides for the transmission f power over great distances as, along with boundaries, less the need for transmission lines. On juxtaposition with current electronic technology, the latter makes use of microwaves, given that the energy and economic efficiency provides form some leveraging via products which are already in production. In retrospect, the last couple years have seen attempts to develop new technology which would otherwise accommodate this propagating by means of electromagnetic waves, in and around the visual light spectrum. In retrospect, as already mentioned, the technologies herein are but emergent. Introduction Despite the fact that the technology is merely in its infancy, the potential benefits are immense on its attaining of maturation. These could be significant for generations as well as society hitherto, given that on extrapolation, the global population is projected to increase exponentially. Five sixths of the global population currently hails from developing countries. As such, countries the likes of India, China, along with Pakistan are on a campaign to alleviate the standards of living. Per se, such are the trends which hint at a demand for energy of extreme proportions, and whose demand rate is directly......

Sos Transmission

...SOS TRANSMISSION Through Cellular phones to save Accident Victims -Boon for the cellular phone users * * Abstract: This paper describes an ORIGINAL IDEA to help cellular phone users caught in an accident. The idea has been developed keeping in mind the considerations of cost and compatibility with existing system. The Short Message Service or SMS as it is popularly referred to, is made use of for this purpose. The solution offered is the Force-Transducer method. The victim is assumed to be unconscious and the accident is detected automatically. Detailed simulation results at a scaled down level are provided for this solution. The threshold level is set based on data collected from the experiments. One major problem in such design is the technique to find the victim’s position. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is found to be costly. So, an unorthodox design using Radio Direction Finders (RDF) and beacon signals is described. The Goniometer or Crossed Loop Antenna is used for this purpose. This reduces cost effectively when compared with the GPS system. The paper proceeds to suggest an abstract view of the software robot required to perform the Save Our Souls (SOS) message routing task. It uses a special hierarchical message dispatch......

Transmission & Distribution

...I have prepared a report of my investigation into the economic benefits and reliability of common electrical power distribution configurations currently used in the United Kingdom. About 40% of power system investment is in the distribution system equipment (40% in generation, 20% in transmission). Power systems are comprised of 3 basic electrical subsystems. • Generation subsystem • Transmission subsystem • Distribution subsystem We distinguish between these various portions of the power system by voltage levels as follows: • Generation: 1kV-30 kV • EHV Transmission: 500kV-765kV • HV Transmission: 230kV-345kV • Sub transmission system: 69kV-169kV • Distribution system: 120V-35kV The distribution system may also be divided into three distinct subsystems. • Distribution substation • Primary distribution system • Secondary distribution system Distribution substations The distribution substation receives power from one or more transmission or sub transmission lines at the corresponding transmission or sub transmission voltage level and provides that power to one or more distribution feeders that originate in the substation and comprise the primary network. Most feeders emanate radially from the substation to supply the load. There are five main functions of the distribution substation: 1. Voltage transformation: One or more transformers will always be located within the substation to step down the voltage to the primary distribution voltage level. These...

Mother to Child Transmission of Hiv

...Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV Reflective Essay: April 22, 2013 Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV Reflective Essay Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a slowly replicating retrovirus that causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The number of people infected with HIV/AIDS is rising in America, so with that being said what happens to the children who are born at the hands of an HIV infected mother? HIV breaks down our body’s immune system causing people to become ill with opportunistic infections that normally wouldn’t cause them to get ill. HIV is cannot be diagnosed based of only symptoms because the symptoms are muscle aches, swollen glands in the throat, fatigue, headaches and other flu-like symptoms. This is why it is very important to get tested at least yearly because the sooner the treatments can be started than the better the chances of getting the disease maintained before it moves to AIDS or causes other unwanted problems such as altered mental changes. HIV is spread through exposure to exposure to HIV-infected blood or body fluids. The primary transmission modes are contact with an infected persons body fluids during unprotected sex, blood-to-blood exposure (either by direct contact or through needle sharing among injection drug users), and perinatal transmission from infected mother to child(Cibulka, 2006).The transmission of HIV from an HIV-positive mother to her child during pregnancy, labor, delivery or breastfeeding is called......

Power Loss in Transmission Lines

... etc. This electricity is then supplied to a transmission substation near the generating plant. In the transmission substation the voltage is increased substantially using step up transformers. The voltage is increased to reduce the transmission losses over long distances. This electricity then is supplied to a power substation where it is stepped down using step down transformers and then supplied to a distribution grid. In the distribution grid there are additional transformers and voltage is further reduced for distributing further down the grid. From here the electricity is supplied to step down transformers near residential quarters that step down the voltage to 110/220 Volts as per each country's requirement. The power is produced using a three-phase generator that takes some kind of mechanical energy and generates three-phase power. The three-phase power leaves the generator and enters a transmission substation at the power plant. This substation uses large transformers to convert the generator's voltage (which is at the thousands of volts level) up to extremely high voltages for long-distance transmission on the transmission grid. You can see at the back several three-wire towers leaving the substation. Typical voltages for long distance transmission are in the range of 155,000 to 765,000 volts in order to reduce line losses. A typical maximum transmission distance is about 300 miles (483 km). High-voltage transmission lines are quite obvious when you see them. ...

Intergenerational Justice

...Intergenerational justice Name: Course: Instructor: Date:   In the post modern era that many of the young people are finding themselves in, it is very normal to feel lonely, misplaced but worst of all neglected. This happens amidst all the opulence and enhancement of life that modernity promised to offer. The government has done little to remedy this and many of the young people feel completed left out and not properly engaged in the world affairs (Reid, 2008). This is a sad analysis but also a very accurate one. Everyone thought that modernity would make life easier, that technology would help to find solutions to our challenges but this has not been the case. With modernity came along challenges that not many would have predicted. The present day young person is faced with more challenges than the previous generations had to deal with. Poor health, more pollution, global competition, low pay are some of the things that the young people have to deal. All this while, the government is just but watching and not providing any tangible solutions. Well, the reason as to why the young the people would feel this way towards the government and other agencies is because they would have expected better than this. It is my opinion that the government has not done all it could have done to shield and better equip the young people. Yet fully aware of the challenges that post-modernity has brought along, no proper policies or reforms have been established to manage this. The......

Bowen Systems Theory

...Bowen Systems Theory Introduction It is essential to understand the behavior of a person before engaging in assisting them to overcome their challenges in counseling. However, in the course of understanding this individual, there would be barriers, as the person may not have the free will to disclose their actions. Therefore, this necessitates the help of the family to the nurse conducting the assessments to gather useful information that on application will help the patient in need. Therefore, to establish such information, through the association of the patient to the family or close friends helps in understanding the person and factors that led to the situation they face. Thus, in this aspect, this constitutes the Bowen Systems Theory, which has the sole purpose of assisting the psychiatric examination and assessment of patients (Bowen, Rawlins, & Martin, 2010). To understand the theory, the discussion further leads to the diagnostics and treatments available through this theory. Additionally, there are various journals written on the subject that provide a critical analysis of the Bowen theory. Thus, there is an illustration of the journal presented.  Understanding the Topic Murray Bowen was an American Psychiatrist who studied and taught psychiatry as a professor in the Georgetown University. He was a bright fellow who designed and developed the initial prototype of the current Bowen system theory. However, he worked in conjunction with other professors and...

Fomite Transmission

...Fomite Transmission For infections to spread three elements are required. The first being a way to cause infection or source to cause infection. This can be from organisms in your body or by entering through a portal of entry like a cut or break in the skin. Organisms can also enter through your respiratory tract. Next there has to be a susceptible host. Meaning that a person or animal is not able to fight off the organism. The last element required is transmission of the infection to the susceptible host. The organism is stronger than the host so infection occurs. To stop the spread of infection all 3 elements must be present. So the key to prevent is breaking the chain and making sure one of these elements are stopped or not available. To tell you more about a susceptible host lets dig a little deeper into the meaning and what can cause a host to be susceptible. This means a lot of time the host can have a poor immune system or weaken from stress making it unable to fight off the organism. Also the age of host, overall health, ore-existing diseases or injuries can all make the host more susceptible. Remember if the organisms is more powerful than the host chance are the host will become infected by the organism causing sickness or worse death. The three primary modes of transmission is vertical transmission which from mother to baby across or through the placenta. One more common mode of transmission is horizontal transmission. This is from person to person. This......

Channels of the Monetary Transmission Mechanism

...Channels of the monetary transmission mechanism The interest rate pass-through from the key policy interest rate via money market interest rates to the banks’ borrowing and lending interest rates, is an important stage of monetary transmission since it investigates the way the central bank influences interest rates in the economy, in particular when banks have a dominant role in the financial system, as in the case of Macedonia. The monetary policy has the potential to influence output and prices. Output is affected in the short to medium run, because of nominal price and wage rigidity. For instance, if the central bank increase the supply of money, that will lead to increased demand for goods and services, increased demand for labour force, increased production, and on the other side if the employees ask for higher wages, when companies will realize that demand is only nominally increased, the curve will decrease, meaning that on short-term the central bank may influence due to the rigidity of wages and prices. Nevertheless, the output effects will disappear in the long run as it is expected that prices will adjust slowly, but certainly. Thus, in the long run monetary policy determines the prices of goods and services. Understanding the mechanisms through which the monetary signals are transmitted within the economy is not an easy task. The difficulty arises not only because of numerous transmission channels, but also because of their different relative importance in......

Intergenerational Justice Apa

...Intergenerational Justice Suzan Khlaikhel Schiller International University Intergenerational Justice Now we have to consider the fairness between generations. There is no need to emphasize the difficulties raised by the problem. However, the presentation of justice as fairness would be incomplete without a discussion of this important issue. It arises in this context because it is still an open question whether it is possible to make the social system as a whole, competitive economy, surrounded by a corresponding set of related institutions to satisfy two principles of justice. The answer will depend, to some extent, on the level of the established social minimum. But this, in turn, is connected with the extent to which the present generation is obliged to respect the claims of their heirs. 1) Fairness between generations: needs instead of greed In 1974, the economist James Tobin proposed to discuss the concept of "intergeneration", and wrote: " The Trustees of endowed institutions are the guardians of the future against the claims of the present. Their task is to preserve equity among generations.” Unsustainable use of natural resources leads to intergenerational injustice. Perceiving themselves as one collective, it is easy to say that we should take care about the fate of the people of future generations. But the question is how and what to extent our present action of the solutions and the need to focus on the future. Each generation has to postpone and to......

Leading Intergenerational Teams

...Leading Intergenerational Teams Workspace demographics now span four generations. A twenty-something hired this year can expect to find that they working with colleagues who are older than they are by fifty or more years. The reason for this is primarily due to labor shortages for trained personnel in many industries. In addition, many older workers are now delaying retirement due for economic or other reasons. Many of the baby boomer generation can now be expected to delay retirement into their seventies. (Randstad USA) As you will learn, an inter-generational workforce provides many opportunities and challenges. While generational differences can and do lead to frustration, conflicts and poor morale, they do not have to. This section of the handbook will help you to better understand effective methods for leading and working with intergenerational teams. You will see that the differences brought to the mix by different generations can lead to increased productivity, creativity and success. In addition, you will understand the programs and benefits offered to enhance and optimize the benefits of maintaining an inter-generational workforce. Defining the Generations In an article published in the Journal for Quality and Participation, Gesell provides the following definitions of the generations. The Silent Generation. Born between 1925 and 1945, this group values hard work, conformity, dedication, sacrifice and patience. They are comfortable with delayed......

Losses in Transmission Lines

...ABSTRACT: - The transmission lines are considered to be impedance matching circuits designed to deliver rf power from the transmitter to the antenna, and maximum signal from the antenna to the receiver. During this signal transfer certain types of losses occurs e.g.-conductor losses, dielectric heating losses, radiation losses, insertion losses, power losses, and losses due to corona. The objective of this paper is to discuss all these losses. INTRODUCTION:- Before discussing about losses in transmission lines we have to know about transmission lines, their history, their theory, their properties and different types of transmission lines. A TRANSMISSION LINE is a device designed to guide electrical energy from one point to another. It is used, for example, to transfer the output rf energy of a transmitter to an antenna. This energy will not travel through normal electrical wire without great losses. Although the antenna can be connected directly to the transmitter, the antenna is usually located some distance away from the transmitter. On board ship, the transmitter is located inside a radio room and its associated antenna is mounted on a mast. A transmission line is used to connect the transmitter and the antenna. The transmission line has a single purpose for both the transmitter and the antenna. This purpose is to transfer the energy output of the transmitter to the antenna with the least possible......
