Laneisha Searls

There are many Human Service agencies that provide assistance to countless of people in need here in Arkansas. These agencies provide assistance in shelter, food, medical and care for the elderly, child welfare and assist many in finding employment. These are only a few of the many ways that Human Service workers help in providing assistance to all people here in Arkansas. While there are many services, I have chosen two that I am personally involved with through volunteer work.

* ElderChoices Program:
ElderChoices is an Arkansas Medicaid home and community-based waiver program designed for the elderly population. ElderChoices, approved effective August 1, 1991, is designed for persons who due to physical, cognitive or medical reasons, require a level of assistance that would have to be provided in a nursing facility, if it were not for the services offered through this program. The major goal of this program is to provide services that assist eligible persons to remain in their homes or live with family in order to prevent or delay institutionalization (“DHS division Of Aging and Adult Service”, n.d.). * Division of Behavioral Health Services: Children’s Services
The Division of Behavioral Health Services (DBHS) ensures mental and behavioral health care is available to children and youth throughout the state. Outpatient mental health services are available through certified community providers and as such, must comply with State requirements that meet nationally accepted standards for delivering services. Admission to inpatient programs of the State Mental Health System is utilized when determined necessary through an assessment process conducted by the Community Mental Health Centers (“Arkansas Department of Human Services: Children’s Services”,…...

Check Point Fiber Research

...Check Point: Fiber Research SCI/241 October 11, 2012 Fiber plays an important role in your body’s health by helping to reduce blood cholesterol levels, reducing risk for cardiovascular disease, controlling weight by making you feel full with fewer calories, and helping to prevent constipation. Dietary fibers are fibers that are made up of plant parts that the body cannot digest. The best forms of dietary fibers are found in whole grain foods instead of food made from refined grains. Fiber is found in two forms, soluble fiber and insoluble fiber and each carries its own health benefits (American Heart Association (AHA), 2012). Soluble fiber is fiber dissolves in water and forms a gel in your stomach delaying the stomach emptying which keeps you feeling full longer. Since it soluble fiber keeps you feeling fuller longer, it can help keep your weight under control. Delayed stomach emptying has an effect on blood sugar levels which can help control diabetes. This fiber can also help lower the bad cholesterol (LDL) by blocking some absorption of dietary cholesterol. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and is considered a gut-healthy fiber. It can have a laxative effect and add bulk to your diet and help prevent constipation (WebMd, 2012). This fiber can reduce cardiovascular risk and slow the progression of cardiovascular disease in those considered high-risk. Some examples of soluble fibers foods are oat bran, peas, rice bran, beans, citrus fruits...

...project manager to help in improved cost and control management, however, it did not necessarily go about appointing the project manager in the right manner and may face resentment. Another problem that Livingston had was communication problems, the company will also have to deal with having two same but separate computer systems running simultaneously. This double work can lead to miscommunication between sections of the company and may create more problems obtaining government contracts in the short run. The EDP manager did however identify that this would be a problem early on and having two systems could not be helped 2. How do you think the functional employees feel? Support how you might feel if you were in their position by citing points from the case study? As I stated in the earlier question functional employees may feel resentment to the new project manager for the hiring of outside the normal department. The functional employees may also feel that the modified matrix structure Livingston is adopting is not going to do well do to a crucial task of the company’s future is not being assigned with the project management team. This is a big problem because the new matrix structure is still being developed and may not necessarily survive as of yet. 3. Are there any other alternatives? Explain at least three alternatives. One alternative Livingston’s could have done to help this whole transition process would have been to pick a project manager from within the......

Check Point Week 4

...Check Point – Week 4 The ten questions I would ask. To better understand someone would be the following questions; 1) Can you tell me a little about yourself? Requesting for someone to tell me about themselves. I would hope to get them to open up, so that I can understand who they are. Possibly be able to pick up on some things that might give me some insight to a problem. 2) History? I would ask about some history on the person, such as about their parents, or past issues. Any mental illnesses in the family. 3) Fears and phobias? I would want to find out if they have any fears or phobias and if so what they are and get them to tell me about them. 4) Childhood? I would ask about their childhood so that I can get an idea of the environment they grew up in and how they were raised. Possible relationships with parents and siblings. 5) Thoughts and feelings they may have? I would want to explore how they are feeling currently and how what their thoughts are about why they are here. How they feel about talking to someone. 6) Goals for future? I would want them to express to me what they plan for the future and where they might see themselves further in life.

Check Point Problems at Jetblue

...Problems at JetBlue April 15, 2011 Problems at JetBlue I think that the problems that at JetBlue were a combination of managerial and technology issues. I think that it was a failure to plan on both parts and a lack of consideration for their customers. When the disaster happened in 2007 things were going along fine until that day. I am surprised that something of this magnitude had not happened until this point. The company had been in business since 2000 and it took seven years for a major issue to come up. There really is no reason that the company shouldn’t have had protocol in place to follow in case of an emergency. The company and its top level executives should have known better and should have planes in place. JetBlue should have had the technology in place to take on more phone calls than what they did. When customers started to overload the system other people couldn’t get through and caused a jam. That problem should have been foreseen and taken care of when the company first started. I think the person who founded the company and all the people at the top should be embarrassed that something like this even happened. Maybe the company just always thought things would be fine and they wouldn’t ever run into a problem so they just didn’t plan for it. I think the managers should have been asking questions about what to do in case of an emergency. If those questions were asked and then bought up to people that were in charge maybe something could have......

Capstone Check Point

...Capstone Check Point Anna Colonese ETH/125 09/08/2011 Sandra Renfro Capstone Check Point Race and ethnicity in the United States has helped me relate to different minority groups because, I was taught the difference between the two terms very early in my life. Secondly, I have learned that there are some who become emotional or have deep-rooted beliefs when it comes to race and ethnicity, therefore be respectful, yet cautious when this subject surfaces. Most importantly, in order to receive race and ethnicity in the truest, purest form I must cancel any of my own biased feelings out and take a cultural approach. As I’ve stated many times in my discussion question posts, America is known as the Melting Pot all over the world, we are a country of immigrants from day one. Everyone here now has roots that trace to some other part of the world. Historically, America has been a black and white country, this hasn’t been true for a long time; and will be even further from the truth as time progresses. In time to come, more cultures and ethnic backgrounds will mix. In order for our country to succeed, or better yet, maintain, we must achieve greater degrees. In addition, we should all be treated the same, with respect. My wish regarding how the country might best prepare for the changing race and ethnicity of its current and future citizens would be to figure out a way for everyone to be treated equally. One experiment I would like to see conducted is everyone temporary......

Check Point

...Check Point Attorney-Confidentiality Attorney confidentiality is a legal concept that protects certain communications between a client and his or her attorney and keeps those communications confidential. This is very important because it allows the accused to tell their attorney everything in full disclosures without any penalty. The attorneys are then able to provide candid advice and effective representation. One major concern with attorney confidentiality is that the accused does not tell his or her attorney all the facts. An attorney cannot represent a client unless they understand everything behind the issue. The accused must understand that facts against him or her might be out there that could come up in the future and seriously damage their case. If clients could provide information without the assurance that it remains between them and the attorney, then they would keep the information to themselves. Many people believe without attorney confidentiality there would be a justice system based on who is the most skillful liar rather than a process for discovering the truth. Maintaining confidentiality has another major concern because there are new exceptions coming about to where confidentiality can be broken. For example, if a client had two attorneys, he is no longer associated with the first attorney, but the information that was given to the first lawyer in some cases could be ruled acceptable evidence in court. To me I think that is unfair because if you are......

Check Point at Tjx Company

...Check point TJX Company IT/205 MAY 24, 2012 Check point TJX Company Information security means protecting information systems from unauthorized access. To my understanding TJX failed to properly encrypt data on many of the employee computers that were using the wireless network, and did not have an effective firewall installed. In the reading it indicated that TJX was still using the old Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption system, which is relatively easy for hackers to crack. The Wi-Fi equivalent privacy (WEP) was considered old, weak and ineffective, therefore I could say the security breach that TJX had experience was a resulted by using a cheap and inexpensive wireless Wi-Fi network like the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption system, which make it easy for hackers to navigate. This is why it is important that TJX should have invested in using the wireless Wi-Fi Protective access 2 (WPA2) The Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) standard in conjunction with a sophisticated encryption system could have been used to replace the WEP. In that situation an effective firewall would have prevent unauthorized users from accessing private networks, meaning firewall acts like a gatekeeper who examines each user’s credentials before access is granted to a network. An effective Firewall could have reduced the ability for hackers to gain access to sensitive information. A data security breach could result a variety of issues some of them could be loosing of......

Store of value is a currency or commodity that can be store for you to use in the future. An example is money because you can trade the money you have for a good you need. If you have no needs at the time you can hold onto your money until a you need a good. I can relate to the unit of account because I purchase good all the time and the prices have increase over the past couple of years. When, I was first employed I made six dollars and fifty cents an hour which was minimum wage and I got paid in check which way easily turned into cash. Now, I need food that would not spoil so, I went to the grocery store and purchased thing I could store with the cash I got from the check I worked for. The price I paid for the goods was the unit of account. The medium of exchange is a function used very normally such as I mentioned earlier I need gas to get where I am going. I have to find someone that will take the services I have to offer in exchange for the gas I need, or I can find a person that will pay me cash for the services I offer so that I can exchange the cash for the gas I need. My example of store of value is that I can put cash back to keep to get the products I need later down the road....

Check Point: Business Models and Systems

...Check Point: Business Models and Systems * Consider a local business whose services you frequently use. What are the main components of this company's business model? Write a 200- to 300-word response describing the three components of the business system that comprise the local business you selected. Use Figure 1.2 on p. 11 of Introduction to Business as a reference. The business I chose is Adore Nails and Spa, in Riverside, California. I have been going here to get my nails and toes done for the last few years. I have been to a lot of different place that did a good job, but Adore Nails and Spa is the best. The business System is the combination of business commerce, occupations, and organizations that produces and distributes the goods and services that creates value for people in a society. Business commerce is defined as the process which people produce exchange and trade goods and services. To me this means to barter in a sense. I do not believe that this business does this because it is a nail salon that does top of the line nails and massage therapy. Business occupation is defined as the acquired set of specialized skills and abilities that allows people to create valuable goods and services. Adore Nails and Spa employees are all state licensed in Cosmetology and Massage Therapy. I personally believe that this business has the best quality and customer service in town. Business organization is the system of task and authority relationship which......

... An employer may want to limit how an employee uses e-mail during work in order to limit the chance of a lawsuit from someone outside the company. E-mails are often hacked and sent to the people it was never meant to reach and sensitive information about the company may be inadvertently compromised. Personal e-mail use during working hours also cuts down on productivity and may cause a company loss of revenue. An email’s path once it leaves an organization is through a mail transport agent or MTA which will begin the electronic message process. Then the e-mail will go to a mail delivery agent also known as MDA which then sends the message to the recipient’s e-mail inbox.
