Essay Two Assignment Instructions: The Hobbesian concept of a social contract has been manifested in the United States as liberal Democracy. That is, our chosen method of political organization is an electoral democracy and our political system is rooted in the philosophy of Classical Liberalism.

Inherent in Classical Liberalism (and in our political life) is the tension between the idea that government’s role should be largely limited to national defense and the protection of individual freedoms or rights. While the other linked, yet at times contradictory, idea is that government should have a role in promoting the larger social good: protecting the interests of most from the few who might abuse them. Representations of these differing ideas can be found in the writings of John Locke and Jeremy Bentham. respectively. One can find the tension between these ideas at the heart of many of the controversies surrounding health policy.

In your second essay please discuss the following:

A. How might the tensions in Liberal Democracy, described above, come into play for opponents or supporters of partial repeal of the Affordable Care Act health insurance reform? [you will want to refer back to some of the material from Module 5. One potential focus could be the ‘individual mandate’ (see p. 186 from prior readings in Mason et al.) or you may opt for a different focus relevant to the ACA and potential repeals] in the Affordable Care Act health insurance reform (see Mason p. 466).

B. How might these tensions come into lay in a different public health issue such as obesity  or health impact of air pollution and carbon emission? (one paragraph)

C. How is your political analysis of these issues (A and B) affected by your values a a nurse an aspects of your own political philosophy?

i need a few simple methods to assess stress in an experiment.
self-reported stress measures.
for example one of the known self-reported stress test is the (perceived stress scale PSS) but this scale only assesses the participant’s current stress level given his past.
what I am looking for is a method to assess stress after I do an experiment ( a 7:00 min task that may increase this stress and frustration of the subject)
can I simply as him to rate his frustration level and stress level?
the stress scale should indicate if my task increased his stress level.
please find an answer to this question with references from google scholar.

Please choose two of the following four scenarios and answer the two prompts below. This should take about two pages in APA format.

STEP 1 – Identify the diversity issues in the scenario.
STEP 2 – Discuss possible solutions to the problem.

You can refer to the textbook chapters and The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’ QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT EMPLOYER RESPONSIBILITIES CONCERNING THE EMPLOYMENT OF MUSLIMS, ARABS, SOUTH ASIANS, AND SIKHS (Links to an external site.) to assist you.


Scenario 1
You are a group of employee relations team members in a medical office. One of the departments in your organization has recently hired an individual from Iraq. The new hire has been practicing his religious convictions in the workplace. Initially this was reported to only include meditation and prayer while on scheduled break time. Then yesterday, he was seen washing his feet in the employee restroom sink. A number of employees are complaining that this is unsanitary and that these foreign practices shouldnt be exhibited in the workplace. You have contacted the Council on American-Islamic Relations and found that before prayer, Muslims are required to wash their face, hands and feet with clean water. This washing is normally performed in a restroom sink or other facility that has running water.

Scenario 2
You are a group of employee relations team members in a large pediatric clinic. Self-directed work teams have been established to work on a number of new projects. Jim, a member of one the new work teams, recently spoke with his supervisor about his team. His supervisor has come to you for help. Jim says he is a fundamentalist Christian with strong religious beliefs. He expresses concern about Kelly, one of the members of his team. Kelly is openly gay. She keeps a small picture of her partner of ten years at her workstation. Jim is having a hard time accepting the fact that he has to work with Kelly. He has stated that she flaunts her immoral lifestyle for all to see (referring to the partners picture). He asks to be removed from the project immediately. Both Jim and Kelly have critical skill sets needed for the project to succeed.

Scenario 3
You are a group of employee relations team members working for Walgreens pharmacy. One of the senior employees has come to you with a problem hes recently discovered with an employee. The employee is one of the top performers in the group, is always on time and has never had problems on the job. However, the senior employee has recently learned that this man is a cross-dresser and often goes out in public dressed in make-up, a wig, and womens clothing. The employee is a company truck driver and so has contact with the public while on the job. To the senior employee’s knowledge, the employee has never cross-dressed at work, but in the interest of protecting the companys image, would like to see his employment terminated.

Scenario 4
You are a group of employee relations team members in a hospital. You are investigating a harassment complaint brought by one of the female employees against a male co-worker. In an interview with the woman, she described an incident where a male co-worker, a native of a European country, made what she felt was an inappropriate comment to her. At lunch one day, attended by only the two of them, he remarked that he found her very sexual. She felt that the remark was completely out of line because he was married and became extremely upset. She has refused to have any further contact with him. She is very angry at his continued attempts to talk with her. When you spoke with him, he explained that he meant the remark as a compliment and has been trying to apologize.

In this course, you will study production management. As part of the course, you will analyze an aviation or aerospace industrial management issue related to production/operations management, write a research paper, and create a presentation.

(Overview: My main idea on this paper is to search the factors that cause late production in aircraft manufacturing. Later, I will address how these issues happened and what is needed to do to solve these issues and make the manufacturing process better.)

Considering the 10 OM decisions, your paper will be a review of issues that were caused by a failure in the production/operations management process. You will compare and contrast the current research findings with the principles and concepts presented in your Heizer, et al. textbook.

All reference sources should be from academic journals, professional trade publications, and respected business or industry magazines. Limit the use of books as sources. Do NOT use articles or sources from Wikipedia! Use references published within the past six years.

The basic rules for your research paper include:

Follow the current Writing Style Guide for manuscripts closely.
The paper should be 10 pages at a minimum.
Use one-inch margins on all sides.
Left justify all narrative.
Use Times New Roman font, 12-point.
Indent the first line of each paragraph one-half inch.
Double-space everything in the paper. Do not add extra lines or spacing between paragraphs or sections of the paper.
Insert the running header at the top left and the page number at the top right of each page of the paper.

2.  Choose one of the above-named artists (or a graffiti artist who has worked within Berlin) and discuss his/her importance with regard to the socio/economic issues that define both the past as well as contemporary society.   

Your essay should be comprised of 4-5 typewritten pages, double-spaced, #12 font only (a size similar to Times New Roman as a larger font/spacing will result in the loss of points).  I would advise that you use spelling & grammar in MSWord (or similar) and avoid the passive voice.

A number of the films that we have watched this term have focused on personal action, such as adopting a largely plant-based diet or becoming a minimalist, as a way of addressing the climate crisis. This week we will approach this as a political issue by considering the most sweeping legislation ever proposed in the U.S. to address the climate crisis: the Green New Deal.
Although Joe Bidens climate proposals differ from the Green New Deal, it is still important to consider just what sort of actions would be required to mitigate the climate crisis as well as to consider the political resistance that this proposal received.
Please watch The Green New Deal, explained, and Why you still dont understand the Green New Deal, which are both short VOX videos, as well as A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. All are on YouTube.
Write a comment about those videos.

Pathophysiology helps us understand the ‘whys’, enabling you to better generalize that knowledge to similar situations. This is a big part of critical thinking and clinical judgment! When you truly understand the rationale behind what you see and what you do, light bulb moments occur, and nursing process makes sense!! When you understand the whys, critical thinking expands, and you will able to generalize that knowledge of pathophysiology to a variety of patient scenarios. And when you can do that, patients often experience better outcomes! Not everyone you will care for has a single, or definitive medical diagnosis. Not all individuals with a diagnosis fit the textbook scenario. As nurses we assess individuals with unique signs and symptoms we dont assess a stroke or MI we assess people! There are many signs and symptoms that have a variety of causes. And there are many health alterations that manifest in multiple ways, particularly when there are other comorbidities. This makes it imperative that the nurse is able to think about a whole situation critically and figure out what is going on from a pathophysiologic perspective. For example, when a person presents with tachypnea it could be related to COVID 19, asthma, ARDS, heart failure, anemia, over exertion, fever, neurologic injury, gastric distension, activity intolerance, complications of diabetes, anxiety, acid base imbalance, drug overdose, and more. When a person presents with confusion, it could be related to a stroke, MI, heart failure, cerebral hypoxia, neurologic injury, anxiety, medication change, infection, and more. The nurse must look at the whole situation and think critically to help the patient. All confusion is not the same, all breathing challenges are not the same! And appropriate intervention depends on the through assessment of the specific situation. Understanding the why of your intervention helps you to generalize interventions to similar situations. For example, why did you administer pain medication? In the situation of an MI, why did you administer morphine? To reduce pain; reduce the workload of the heart (and so decrease myocardial oxygen demand); relax smooth muscle (and so decrease BP and reduce cardiac workload); and reduce circulating catecholamines (and so reduce the heart rate and myocardial oxygen demand). Why did you administer acetaminophen when a person has a fever? For comfort, but also to decrease the work of the heart, the work of the lungs, and sometimes to reduce fluid loss and maintain vascular volume. Why is supplemental oxygen helpful when a person experiences activity intolerance? Why doesnt the administration of oxygen help in situations of ARDS?? Often 12 our interventions have cascading type effects. When you understand the whys of assessment findings and interventions, critical thinking expands, and you should be able to generalize that knowledge of pathophysiology to a variety of patient situations. And when you can do that, patients often experience better outcomes!
