Pulaski’s Tunnel One of the biggest national incidents is the fire of 1910. The book The Big Burn by Timothy Egan tells about this event. Total fires burned more than three million acres and almost hundred people were killed. This historical event has historical names and one of them is Edward Pulaski. There is the man whose heroism saved forty-fife human lives; he found a safety place in extreme situation, he took charge and helped his group survive and he sacrifice himself to save others. First, Ed Pulaski did not panic in extreme situation and used his knowledge of the area to hide from the fire. He was a forest ranger and on that day he went to the town for fresh supplies. On the way back he and his group where completely surrounded by the wild fire. There was no place to run. He did not panic and found the solution by using his knowledge of the forest. He decided to hide in the tunnel. Second, he took control of the situation and stopped panic. In the tunnel that was difficult to breath and people were scared and in panic. He ordered them to law down on the ground and stopped people who tried to leave because there was no other place to run outside the tunnel. Also, he realized that the fire would burn wood tunnel support and he found the way by carrying water in his hat. Third, he was responsible for his men and took big risk to his personal safety. While he was protecting his men he was badly injured; however, he continued fighting for his people. In the end, his skin had burned, he got blinded and he was unconscious. As the result, forty-fife people out of fifty survived. In conclusion, there was a big fight between wildfire and people where Ed with his group were winners. They survived because of Pulaski’s knowledge of the area, his strong command position and his brave. Today that place in Idaho where…...

...emergency department (ED) play a substantial role in patient and staff satisfaction. Length of stay in the ED is directly related to patient volume, patient acuity, lab turnaround times, and time to treatment, which is all connected to patient satisfaction. Long wait time contributes to patients leaving prior to a medical screening examination. Patients who leave without been screened is dangerous and sometimes deadly, thereby creating a liability for the hospital. Baptist Memorial Hospital has outgrown its current capacity creating overcrowding and delays. Hospital capacity is an organizational barrier faced by Baptist Memorial Hospital. Patient presentations over the past several years have increased substantially as well as an increase in hospital diversion and a decrease in overall patient satisfaction. The current ED operates out of 11 beds with one around the clock physician and a mid-level provider during peak times. Nurse to patient ratios are 4:1 with a dedicated charge nurse. The department also has a dedicated triage nurse, and one secretary during peak hours. The ED does not have a patient care technician or a dedicated housekeeper. So, bed turnover, equipment cleaning, and patient transport are nursing responsibilities. Over the past three years, patient monthly volumes have increased from an average of 1300 to 2200 patients. The hospital is licensed for 100 inpatient beds and 40% of hospital admissions originate from the ED. As a result of......

Pulaski

...Casimir Pulaski Day Casimir Pulaski Day is a holiday observed in Illinois on the first Monday in March. Pulaski was a calvary officer in the Revolutionary War. He was born in Poland as Kazimierz Pułaski, on March 4, 1745. This holiday is celebrated mostly in areas with a large polish population, such as Chicago, in remembrance of him. On Jan. 16, 1931, the U.S. Post Office Department issued a commemorative stamp honoring this Polish patriot, Casimir Pulaski, who fought with American forces during the American Revolution. The stamp was first released in Savannah, GA, where he died, as well as in eleven American cities with large Polish populations. The 2-cent stamp was released to mark the 150th anniversary of the death of Casimir Pulaski, who was mortally wounded in the siege of Savannah. They also issued a postcard. (PolskiInternet) In popular culture, Sufjan Stevens titled a song "Casimir Pulaski Day" on his album Illinois. In this song there is a lyric “In the morning in the winter shade on the first of March” which tells us when the holiday occurs. (Wikipedia, "Casimir Pulaski Day") The holiday is also observed in Wisconsin public schools on March 4th. Each public school in Wisconsin must observe Casimir Pulaski Day on March 4. Buffalo, NY, also acknowledges a "Pulaski Day," apparently unrelated to either the Chicago-Wisconsin regional holiday The Buffalo Pulaski Day is held, without explanation, in the middle of July, and is celebrated with an annual parade.......

...Higher Ed Disruption: Not So New October 8, 2012 By Alexandra W. Logue Are you a faculty member or administrator who thinks that the latest technologies are finally going to enable us to teach our students well, or do you at least hope that’s the case? If so, you should reconsider, because the vaunted elements of the latest technologies have been around for some 100 years. It isn’t having the technology, but using the technology that is key to helping students learn well. For at least the past decade there has been much talk about the advantages of highly sophisticated online courses and the use of online tools in traditional courses. One of the significant advantages of technology-enhanced courses, it is said, is that they can be tailored to individual students’ needs, and thus achieve desired learning outcomes for each student better and faster. Consider for example, this quote from the website of the Apollo Group, the parent company of the University of Phoenix: "Based upon the belief that learning is not a one-size-fits-all experience, Apollo Technology developed the technology to deliver data-driven, personalized education tailored to the individual. Apollo Technology’s unique student data system collects and analyzes individual student data, and delivers automatic just-in-time guidance that can significantly improve student outcomes." In 2010, the University of Phoenix announced a new Learning Management System, the Learning Genome Project, that "gets to know each...

Sepsis in the Ed

...Center of Disease Control reports sepsis as the 10th leading cause of death in the United States (V). For adults age 65 and over hospital admission because of sepsis have increased 48%. The body’s immune system switches into “high gear” which overwhelms the body’s normal blood flow and oxygenation of tissues throughout the body. This process, if not treated in time, can quickly lead to organ failure and death. Approximately one third of people diagnosed with sepsis die from it. The role of emergency departments throughout the country has become vitally important to the early detection and treatment of sepsis. With the implementation of sepsis protocols in the emergency department the mortality of patients with sepsis admitted through the ED is significantly lower. The word sepsis is commonly used to diagnose patients, but the debate continues as to the true definition. The word sepsis comes from the Greek meaning decay or to putrefy.” (A). Sepsis is a general term that is applied to patients that develop clinical signs of infection. Unlike other diseases sepsis is not diagnosed by the location or type of microbe involved in the infection. Some of the criteria used to diagnose sepsis are abnormalities of body temperature, pulse, respirations, and white blood cell counts. Some symptoms that are common in septic patients are fever, hypothermia, heart rate greater than 90 beats per minute, altered mental status, swelling of the extremities, and high blood glucose in......

For example when we were younger we was all taught cruise but, not all of us use cruise now.

Ed Gein

...Ed Gein Travis S. Franklin Upper Iowa University Ed Gein Edward Theodore Gein born on August 27th, 1906 was an American murderer and a body snatcher. Ed was the son of George and Augusta Gein, born in La Crosse, Wisconsin. His parents had two children, both boys, the older named Henry George Gein and the younger named Edward Theodore Gein. Ed’s parents had a horrible marriage, one where Augusta loathed her husband, but refused to get a divorce because of their family’s strong religious beliefs. Gein’s mother ran a small grocery store and later bought a farm in Plainfield, Wisconsin. Augusta’s reasoning on moving the family to the outskirts of the small town was to prevent outsiders from influencing her children. Augusta had kept her children very sheltered, and Ed was only allowed to leave the farm to go to school. Other than going to school, Ed mostly spent his every waking moment working on the farm doing chores, which kept him from making friends as a child. Even when Ed attempted to try and make friends his mother would punish him for doing so. Ed became very shy and an easy target for bullies. His mother took it upon herself to influence her boys about the wickedness of the world. She had told them that all women, herself not included, were prostitutes and were tools of the devil. Throughout the boys’ childhood, Augusta was convinced that they would grow up to be a failure like their father, and abused them frequently. The brothers only had each......

...Question 1. Do you think what the EDS pilot did to Marilyn was what he ought to have done? Can you justify your position? What principles might you use to do so? What does Jan Narveson think about cases like Marilyn’s? Why does he think as he does? How many changes, and to what extent, would be the very minimum that would have to be made in Godwin’s story “Cold Equations” before you would think that Marilyn ought to be spared by the EDS pilot? Stephanie Mann 4778759 Phil 1F90 Maya Snrdic In the short story The Cold Equations, it depicts life’s real challenges, and how we must face them when in a decision of where we are obligated to figure out for ourselves what is right and wrong. Although this is a science-fictional story, it shows us how real life decisions are made, in which this case, the decision is threatening to one’s life. The choices made in this story are done through morality, utilitarianism, and assumption, clearly shown throughout the obstacles that are thrown at the main character and subject. In this short story, Marilyn made a choice, and clearly the last choice she could have made as a young 18 year old, to sneak onto a ship that was clearly marked “unauthorized personnel, keep out!” Little did she know was that her decision to sneak onto this ship would not be to pay a small fine, but would be to pay the price of her life. The EDS pilot now has to face decisions that he would rather not, since he is the one who has to choose who dies or not.......

Ed Gein

...company. Dr. George Arndt refers to the Gein household as a breeding ground for a psychopath. Author of The Monster Show, David Skal, explained in a documentary that, “Augusta moved to an isolated location most likely to prevent outsiders from influencing her sons.” There are many studies that prove that humans needs social interaction in order to establish into a normal adult. Edward clearly was set up for disaster at an early stage in his life based upon that statement. Edward grew up to have a very strange and abnormal relationship with his mother. He worshiped her and in the eyes of David Skal, would do anything for her. She did not allow her children to have any social relationships, especially not with the opposite sex. In 1940, Ed was thirty-four years old when his father died of a tragic heart attack. It was now only Edward, his mother Augusta and older brother Henry on the farm. In May of 1944 Edward and Henry found themselves battling a brush fire on their property. According to Edward, the fire had lost control and he lost sight of his brother. Edward reported it to the police, and told them he did not know where his brother was, but surprisingly was able to lead them straight to his brother’s dead body. There were rumors of unexplained bruises on Henry’s head. However due to the traumatic loss of the father and now Henry, further investigation was not carried on. A couple months after the death of Henry, Augusta suffered a stroke that left her partially......

Writing an Op-Ed

...Constitutional Law: Bill of Rights TUTORIAL 1: WRITING AN OP-ED Do you have an interesting opinion to share? Is something driving you crazy? Is there something which needs to be said which no-one else is saying? If you can express it clearly and persuasively in an op-ed, you can reach thousands of people, and possibly sway hearts, change minds, influence decision-makers and even shape public policy. In the process, you also earn recognition for yourself and your institution, all for less effort than it takes to write a professional journal article. An op-ed is a short punchy piece of writing in which you give your opinion and try to convince your readers why you are right. It is not like an essay that unfolds slowly like a carpet. Quite the opposite because in an op-ed you open with your conclusion – the one message that you want to get across in the op-ed. This is the most important thing to remember about an op-ed. You have space for ONE message only. The rest of the op-ed is for you to make your case and support your view or conclusion. In the process of doing so, you usually play an educating role for readers who have no specialist knowledge of the subject matter. It is important though that your op-ed is accessible and not preachy. So an op-ed is the expression of your opinion, but backed up with facts, research or first-hand information. Typically an op-ed is 700-800 words. Any longer and you risk an editor deciding not to publish it because she......

Ed Pien

...Detail of "The Night Gathering" by Ed Pien Ed Pien has a permanent scar on the tip of his index finger. After discovering the traditional Chinese way of cutting paper several years go, he creates grand 3D realms and environments with an X-Acto knife. Welcome to Haven of Delight, Pien’s hauntingly beautiful exhibit on display at The Rooms Provincial Gallery. “I cut vertically,” says Pien. “Even though I have an image to work with while cutting, I am still doing a lot of improvisation in order to feel that there is a continued sense of exploration and negotiation with making the paper-cut.” Haven of Delight exhibit features an out of this world installation; it’s an all encompassing paper maze of celestial celebration. Haven of Delight is a universe in itself. Viewers are welcomed into the tranquility of the grand-scale sanctuary where imagination, myth and spirits come to life. Pien’s ethereal paper cut-outs begin as a photograph, images of trees and human figures. He combines the two digital photographs and manipulates it until the visual aligns with his mind’s eye. “I am interested in exploring realms where language is inadequate to explain away mysteries and wonders,” he says. On the night of Haven of Delight‘s opening Pien wandered around with a small keychain flashlight, asking patrons to hold it up at eyelevel. The small light showcased an entirely different interpretation, Haven of Delight became lucid, a dream within a dream. Pien is fascinated with the......
