DIABETES RESEARCH BRIDGE GRANTS

New York State Health Research Council
New York State Department of Health

Issued May 16, 2003

Application Deadline: July 14, 2003

Background

According to the National Center for Health Statistics of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diabetes is the 8th leading cause of death, nationally. Diabetes is also a leading cause of disability, blindness, limb loss and end stage renal disease. It is associated with half of all heart attacks. Diabetes affects more children than any other serious disease. It is estimated that the approximately 16 million people in the US afflicted with diabetes account for more than $105 billion of annual health care costs. Estimates indicate that currently 1.5 million New Yorkers have been diagnosed with diabetes, while another 500,000 people in the State are either at high risk for developing it, or are undiagnosed. An estimated $8.7 billion in direct and indirect costs result from New Yorkers who are diagnosed diabetics. In 1997 alone, there were 1,096 new cases of diabetes-related blindness and 285,127 diabetes-related hospitalizations in New York. An estimated 12,177 residents of New York died as a result of diabetes in 1997.

Because of its high toll in morbidity and mortality, the New York State Legislature established a special program of research regarding diabetes mellitus, in 1985. Section 2796, Article 27-H of the Public Health Law of New York seeks, among other things,

"to promote scientific investigations with respect to the causes, prevention and treatment of diabetes."

The New York State Health Research Council of the New York State Department of Health administers appropriations to this Diabetes Research Program.

(a) The number of emblems in direct materials inventory at May 31 would be 5,000 (35,000 emblems purchased – 30,000 emblems used). Each emblem cost $2. Thus, the cost of emblems in direct materials inventory would equal $10,000. (b) The number of emblems in work in process inventory at May 31 would be 3,000 (30,000 emblems placed into production x 10% unfinished at May 31). Each emblem cost $2. Thus, the cost of emblems in work in process inventory would equal $6,000. (c) The number of emblems in finished goods inventory at May 31 would be 6,750 (30,000 emblems x 90% transferred in = 27,000 minus 27,000 emblems x 75% sold = 20,250). Each emblem cost $2. Thus, the cost of emblems in finished goods inventory would equal $13,500. (d) The number of emblems in cost of goods sold for May would be 20,250 (see part c). Each emblem cost $2.

...Graphic Form The relationships among revenue, cost, profit, and volume can be expressed graphically by preparing a cost-volume-profit (CVP) graph. A CVP graph highlights CVP relationships over wide ranges of activity and can give managers a perspective that can be obtained in no other way.

Malcolm X

...Hunter Dixon Mrs. Richardson Term Paper Final Draft 08 December 2013 The Angriest Man In America Without a doubt, Malcolm X is one of the most iconic figures in the history of our country. He is best remembered for the passion and power he displayed during all of his speeches, but his legacy has roots so much deeper than just that. He was the self-proclaimed “angriest man in America,” and he even openly called white people devils. Malcolm spent his whole life preparing himself for an inevitable death (Malcolm X, A Leader of Black Pride). He wanted to get his message out to the world before his time came, and it came much too early for a man like him. Malcolm X will live on throughout history because he was so passionate in his beliefs; though they changed often, he always stood up for what he believed was right, and there is nothing more respectable than that. Even if the man’s beliefs were radical at times. Malcolm’s birth name was Malcolm Little. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska on May 19, 1925 to parents Rev. Earl and Louise Little, the fourth of eight children (The Autobiography of Malcolm X). When he was about a year and a half old, his parents decided it was best to move out of Omaha after a Klu Klux Klan band warned them to leave, or else face consequences (Malcolm X). After passing through Milwaukee for a short time (Malcolm X, A Leader of Black Pride), they eventually found a place to stay, in Lansing, Michigan. Even though they had a new home, the......

...often used to attempt to understand the influence that each stakeholder has over an organisation’s objectives and/or strategy. The idea is to establish which stakeholders have the most influence by estimating each stakeholder’s individual power and interest in the organisation’s affairs. The stakeholders with the highest combination of power and interest are likely to be those with the most actual influence over objectives. Power is the stakeholder’s ability to influence objectives (how much they can), while interest is the stakeholder’s willingness (how much they care). These factors will help define the type of relationship the organization should have/ seek with its stakeholders and how it should view their concerns. Influence = Power x Interest The matrix is not static because changing events can mean that stakeholders can move around the matrix with consequent changes to the list of the most influential stakeholders in an organisation. LEVEL OF INTEREST LOW HIGH POWER Keep Satisfied (e.g. institutional investors) Minimal effort (e.g government) key players (e.g major customer) HIGH LOW Keep informed ( e.g. community representatives) INSTRUMENTAL AND NORMATIVE MOTIVATIONS of stakeholder theory This another debate on stakeholder theory by Donaldson and Preston that answers the questions the why organisations do or do not take account of stakeholder concerns in their decision making, strategy formulation, and implementation.

...security [3, 16, 52], but they do not apply to a fully homomorphism scheme. However, constructing a CCA1-secure fully homomorphism encryption scheme is an interesting open problem. We construct a fully homomorphism encryption scheme us- ing ideal lattices. The result can roughly be broken down into three steps: a general “bootstrapping” result, an “initial construction” using ideal lattices, and a technique to “squash the decryption circuit” to permit bootstrapping. Our research began with the second step: a PKE scheme E1 described in Section 3 that uses ideal lattices and is homo- morphed for shallow circuits. A cipher text has the form v + x where v is in the ideal lattice and x is an “error” or “offset” vector that encodes the plaintext _. Interpret- ing cipher text vectors as coefficient vectors of elements in a polynomial ring Z[x]/f(x), we add and multiply cipher texts using ring operations – 1 + 2 or 1 × 2 – and induce addition and multiplication of the underlying plain- texts. By itself, this scheme improves upon prior work. It compares favorably to Boneh-Goh-Nissim [11]; it is homo-morphic for circuits with greater multiplicative depth while allowing essentially unlimited additions. The security of E1 is based on a natural decisional version of the closest vector problem for ideal lattices for ideals in a fixed ring. E1 is homomorphism only for shallow circuits because the “error” vector grows with addition and (especially) multi-placation......

X-Ray

...X-Radiation Project Abstract This project will look at the history of X-radiation in its notable historical forms and trace the use of the technology all the way to contemporary forms of X-Radiation, including computed tomography. The origins of the two technologies will be traced as well as the improvements that have been made to them over the past number of decades. The importance of the technology will be assessed in terms of its efficiency and usefulness in the context of modern medicine. The finding is that CT, CAT, and X-ray allow for great convenience, lower cost, and higher quality imaging than is possible without these technologies. Background & State of the Art The story of X-rays begins in the late Nineteenth Century when a German professor named Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen introduced the discovery that a cathode ray tube could create a fluorescent glow of crystals that were placed on a surface near the tube (NA, 2014). After giving the cathode ray tube a higher voltage and removing all air from the inside of the tube, the professor found that the tube gave nearby objects a fluorescent glow of light. The upshot for the professor from this improvised experiment was that the tube must be giving off a new kind of ray that scientists were not yet familiar with. The most significant part of Roentgen’s discovery, for modern medical purposes, at least, was that the new......

Malcolm X

...Wesley Maschke D. Allen University Writing 28 January 2016 Malcolm X Reading the essay as a whole, I found it very interesting and enlightening to a side of thinking that I have never done before. It's astounding how a man can go from being an almost illiterate convict to a very knowledgeable reader, while in prison. One thing that bothered me about the content was the story about Nat Turner. It seems as if all of the African community applauds Nat for his actions. I believe that Nat’s actions and the commandment of those actions negate any sort of pity that should be felt for the African community. Even if the white people were being outlandishly evil to the blacks, it does not give the blacks any sort of right to retaliate and kill white people out of anger. I believe the ways of Martin Luther King Jr. were the most ethical and respectable ways to go about the civil rights movement. Peace and patience are a lot more respectable than violence when it comes to achieving a goal. On the other hand, I agree with Malcolm X in the fact that what white people have done is completely inexcusable. The writing of this piece is also very interesting. The chronological arrangement of Malcolm’s life adds to the effect of how much being in prison actually changed him. The addition of other outside sources that drove Malcolm for change makes his new lifestyle appear to be very noble. A quote that describes the differences in jail and outside of jail is, “Some were said by many to be...

Malcolm X

...Kenya Davis Ms. Howard Sociology 02 March 2016 MLK Jr vs Malcolm X Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X had many similarities and differences when it came to their roles in the civil rights movement. A huge similarity of the two is they fought hard for their people with getting treated bad. They both wanted to see black people in the best position possible. Risking their lives everyday for the rights they felt they deserve. They were both assassinated because of their leadership role positions they played during this time. Even though they had different beliefs/religions, both their religions played a significant role in their approaches. They both had the greatest impact on the civil rights movement during the 1960s. One of the main reasons why Malcolm X and MLK Jr is different is their approach to the civil rights movement. While MLK Jr wanted to keep the peace and have a non-violent protest, Malcolm X was very opposite. Malcolm X felt that if they wanted to be violent then so should his people. Also, MLK Jr thought more of people being equal and Malcolm X was more for his people being in high power and being controlled by themselves. Also, their religion was a extremely huge difference and had an impact on the way they went about things. MLK Jr grew up in a Christian home where his parents stressed necessary things such as education and religion. Malcolm X converted to Islam after being arrested for drugs and burglary. His outlook on things were far more violent...

Generation X

...The Generation X. INTRODUCTION Generation X includes those people who are born between the early 1960s(nineteen sixtys) and the early 1980s(nineteen eightys). This generetion is likely presented by our parents. Gen X are trapped by two much larger generations – the Baby Boomers ahead and the Millennials behind – that are completely different from one another. Gen X grew up in an era of emerging technology, political and institutional changes. This generation spent less time with their parents than previous generations of children had. They found themselves home alone and taking care of themselves and their siblings, while their parents worked. They were not coddled for every emotional need and want. IN WORKPLACE They learned independence early in life and turned it into a valuable hallmark as they progressed in the working world. In Generation X, we see a highly independent, outspoken, adaptable and fearless group of employees who can move your company forward with their ability to lead for example, their competence and their willingness to take risks necessary for corporate growth. The workplace challenges for this group are less likely to be related to independent project management or leadership. In addition to the workplace issues facing the general employee population, the Gen X worker will more likely struggle at work with: career development; conflict resolution and office politics; multigenerational team projects. Now I want to mention some of work style......
