Why does anton kriel want to do this interview?

I mention in the topic that the purpose of the interview is not trading nor money but “wider issues”.  Could it be that Kriel is concerned with the lack of freedom and independence that young people enjoy, ironically, in the freest society and economic system in history?   
Why does Anton Kriel want to do this interview?  The video is less about trading and the “narrow issues” of respecting money, assets and liabilities, alternative education, mainstream media, etc. and more about “wider issues”.  What are these “wider issues”?  Which one of the ten “secrets” do you find most useful and how could you apply it to your life?  Please answer these questions and explain your answers.  Also quote from the video.

When you read the topic you’ll notice I’m asking you to respond to the interview and to write about yourself in connection to the video’s content.  Don’t be afraid to write about yourself nor to use the word I.

Discussion: Identifying PI Opportunities

You are presented with the following mini-scenarios:

  1. Community Hospital’s HIM department does not have enough space and has set up all coders to work from home. Now, when coders have questions about a case, need to e-mail each-other rather than discussing it in person, often leads to miscommunication and inconsistencies in coding.
  2. Dr. Smith enters new medications in the e-Prescribing system, asks the patient to confirm the preferred pharmacy and, and advises the patient that the medications will be ready for pick up in a few minutes.
  3. Recently, the HIM department decided to use offsite storage for some of the older records. Ana works only on the weekends and is not aware of this change. As per ER request, she is looking for a patient record and cannot find it. 
  4. When a patient with suspected pneumonia is admitted, it is expected that blood cultures and a chest X-Ray are done right away. This assures quicker and more accurate diagnosis or confirmation of diagnosis.

 (1) identify the performance improvement opportunity; (2) determine whether the issue is mostly related to a structure or process aspect or the interaction between the two; (3) explain the performance measure you would focus on along with the data you would collect; and (4) any benchmarks you would follow.  

Week 6 – assignment: evaluate and understand routers

In this assignment, you will research routers by analyzing their functions in a network. You will accomplish this task by writing a paper that includes the following:

  • Compare and contrast bridges, routers, and switches. Be sure to include the network layers involved and data delivery assurance.
  • A diagram of a ten-node network that uses ten routers. The network may not be a fully interconnected or star network.
  • The routing table for each node in the network.
  • A scholarly discussion using several technical articles on possible routing algorithms.
  • A recommendation for the appropriate routing algorithm for your network.

Support your paper with a minimum of five (5) scholarly or technical resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Length: 6 pages not including title and reference pages, PLUS any relevant diagrams

Blog 3 | Science homework help

Watch the video below.  Then, answer the following questions: Had you heard of the DASH diet before? Do you have a history of high blood pressure in your family or do you suffer from hypertension?  Even if you answer no to both, the best way to cure disease is to prevent it all together, so how can you incorporate the DASH diet in your daily eating to prevent or treat hypertension? Offer your classmates a recipe that would meet some of the goals of the DASH diet utilizing several food groups and do provide the recipe.  Make sure you also provide the resource or the link of your recipe. After you have written your post, provide feedback to 2 of your classmates.

Discussion: integrating the research process

About 15 years ago, before evidence-based practice became a standard to which to aspire, a professor found an article describing a treatment program for substance-abusing African-American women that incorporated their children and aimed to preserve their families. The program was built around principles of African-centered theory. The professor thought the program appeared well designed and heartily urged students to study the article and possibly find ways to imitate the program ideas, if not the program itself. A few years later, the professor, having continued her education, especially in the area of research, searched for a follow-up on the program, perhaps reporting outcomes and evidence of effectiveness. No research evidence on the program appears in the scholarly journals. In fact, no evidence that the program continues to exist at this time has been found. The fact that what appeared to be a promising practice approach did not endure or have the opportunity to benefit from evaluation is unfortunate.

Note: This week you will work as a class to create a plan for evaluating the rite of passage program described in the assigned article. Each member of the class will be assigned one step of the research process:

1.Research problems and questions
2.Finding and using existing knowledge
3.Focused research questions and research hypothesis
4.Research methods
5.Sampling issues and options
7.Data acquisition
8.Data collection instruments
9.Analyzing data
10.Disseminating research findings

To prepare for this Discussion, read the Poitier et al. study and then revisit what you have learned about your assigned step of the research process. Consider what would be the most important information to share with your colleagues about that step. Together the class will create a research plan for evaluating the rite of passage program described in the assigned article.
