...Leadership is important in managing and organizing the structure of the organization while trying to maintain a profitable company that takes into consideration employees, shareholders, customers and board of directors, etc. Another attribute of a great leader is managing diversity in the workplace. However, diversity includes many different issues and needs to be managed and if done properly can lead to competitive advantages for the company. Thomas A. Kochan, professor at MIT, stated “Diversity can enhance business performance only if the proper training is provided and the organizational culture supports diversity (Dubrin, 2010). Managing Cultural Diversity: Managing cultural diversity is not an easy task, however, when incorporated into the organizations core values, is makes it easier to incorporate (Dubrin, 2010). Below is a diagram that provides a breakdown of areas or issues that may need to be looked at to evaluate the possibility of creating and leading a culturally diverse organization. These areas may help to identify areas where a competitive advantage may be available in the organization. In such a culturally diverse world and as the organization makes decisions that will impact them globally, these discussions are vital for the success of the company. Whether not decisions are made to implement or not to implement decisions based on diversity within the organization, these ideas, may identify some of the organizations strengths and weaknesses. ......

...Task 2 A Mahatma Gandhi was born in Porbandar, Kathiawar, India on October 2, 1869, in. After studying law in London, England, he left for South Africa in 1893, where he spent twenty years fighting biased legislation against Indians. As an innovator of passive opposition of mass non-violent civil defiance, he turn out to be a major political and spiritual leader (Biography.com 2013). In 1914, Gandhi went back to India and became the leader of the Indian National Congress and gave his support the Home Rule movement, furthermore advocating a strategy of non-violent non-cooperation to attain independence. Gandhi’s main objective was to assist poor laborers and farmers protest discriminating taxation and prejudices. His struggled was to liberate women, ease poverty, and stop class discrimination. Mahatma Gandhi main goal was for India to rule itself (Biography.com 2013). Mahatma Gandhi spent two years in jail, from 1922-24, for conspiracy. In 1930, he marched 200 miles to the ocean to gather salt to show defiance to governmental control. Gandhi sat at the London Round Table Conference in 1931, regarding Indian constitutional reform. In 1946, he negotiated for a new constitutional structure with the Cabinet Mission. In 1947 after the independence, Gandhi worked to stop the Hindu-Muslim conflict in Bengal, which eventually caused his assassination (Biography.com 2013). Mahatma Gandhi's pledge to non-violence and conviction to simple living has been an inspiration of hope for......

...Rachel Johnson Addy JET Task 2 March 29, 2014 JET Task 2 1. A budget is an itemized estimate of expected income as well as estimated expenses over a specified period of time. The reason to design a budget is to regulate spending. There are multiple causes of concern with Competition Bikes budget plan. The main cause for concern is that the sales estimated for year 9 is 3,510 units. This estimate is not supported by past sales data. Due to the current economic status, the amount of units sold from year 7 to 8 decreased 15% according to the horizontal analysis. Rider sponsorships were also reduced and will most likely remain limited in the future (WGU, 2014). There is some misleading and inaccurate information posted within the budget. Under the Selling, General, and Administrative breakdown “utilities” is listed at $150,000 on the vertical analysis for year 8 and year 9. Then there is another listing for “utilities and services” of $54,000. This is misleading because this entry was not listed in the expenses from the previous year. Another cause of concern is that the cash budget is not included in the uncollected receivables. CB makes expensive bikes so there should be room for uncollectable accounts. The uncollectable receivables budget could be used to cover the any uncollected payments. The reduction of sponsorships and the slow economy could possibly cause a rise in uncollectable accounts. There is also some concern because the operating income is......

The effecting factors of life expectancy is primarily based on the lack of resource her county has to ensure her survival. Factors such as "limited access to safe drinking water" is a non-problem to a child born in a developed country. In regards, to diseases many individuals in developing countries do not live long enough to contract any chronic illness. Developing countries are plagues with acute diseases, like Malaria and STI's that demolish their population because they lack efficient health care....

...workers can become quite challenging. Therefore, it is important to practice improving communication abilities in the company through the application of diversity skills (Linn, 2013). A.1. Demographic Changes One demographic change that we see regularly today is the work force becoming more culturally diverse. Every year the numbers of culturally diverse employees are growing more and more. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, by race, Caucasians made up the majority of the workforce as of 2013, counting as 79% of all working Americans. African Americans accounted for 12% of laborers, Asians counted for 6%, and American Indians and Alaska Natives made up only 1% of the labor force, whereas people with two or more races made up 2%. As far as participation in the work force as of 2013, 70% of all Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders were employed as well as 66% of all Hispanics or Latinos, 64.6% of all Asians, 63.5% of all Caucasians, 63.3% of people descending from two or more races, 61.2% of African Americans, and 59.2% of all American Indian and Alaska Natives (BLS Reports, 2014). As the time goes by, the workforce is becoming more and more diverse. This trend also reflects our company because we have developed a very strong background of Caucasian, African American, and Latino employees. As the years have progressed, we have become stronger as a company because of the cultural diversity of our staff. Another demographic change we are seeing in......

...| Accreditation Audit: AFT Task Two | Stephanie Clements | | | Western Governor’s University | | Sentinel Event A sentinel event is defined by The Joint Commission as an unexpected occurrence involving death or serious physical or psychological injury, or the risk thereof (Joint Commission, 2015). The event described in the case study is a sentinel event resulting in the abduction of a child. The event begins when a child is admitted to the preop unit for outpatient surgery with her mother. The child’s mother leaves the facility during the procedure, giving instructions for the nurse to call the mother if the procedure was quicker than expected. After the procedure, the child is discharged home by the recovery room staff with her estranged father who does not have custody of the child. The child is recovered by law enforcement in the care of the father, but the potential harm and psychological damage ensued categorizes these happenings as a sentinel event. Personnel/ Personnel Issues There were several people involved in this sentinel event at Nightingale Community Hospital. Here, they are listed along with their roles and any issues involving them in this event: Person | Role in the event | Barriers | Registrar, Katie Jessup | Responsible for initial intake information and consent to treat. | Followed process as outlined.

...Awareness of Culture and Diversity: EFP1 Task 2 Brittany Kennedy Western Governor’s University A. Introduction Meridian High School is currently the only public high school in the city of Meridian, Mississippi. MHS has approximately 1,400 students enrolled from 9th grade to 12th grade. Some of the most noticeable demographics of this school is, homosexuality, teen pregnancy, and the dropout rate. A1. Local Demographics Staff and faculty members treat homosexual students differently than they do heterosexual students. Some educators don’t agree with their sexuality, and tend to favor the heterosexual student more. Student homosexuality is an uncomfortable subject to handle in a classroom setting. Some teachers feel LGBT students disrupt the learning experience with their outburst and flamboyant behavior. There are also educators who take pride in maintaining respect for all students in the classroom no matter what their sexual orientation is. (Duncan) curtails that “Just because you’re intervening on a homophobic comment doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily trying to be an activist. You are just trying to make sure each child has a safe and supportive learning environment.” Teen pregnancy seems to be an epidemic this day in age. Mississippi is currently ranked # 2 in the U.S. for teen pregnancy. (Lewis, 2013). Lisa Silliman is the Teen Pregnancy Director for the Meridian Public School District. This program serves as the Teen Parent Academic Liaison. Mrs.......

Task 2

...Task Stream 2 Microbiology can be broken down into categorizations based upon the environmental conditions necessary for organisms in which to grow. Two large categories of microorganisms are those requiring oxygen to live (obligate aerobes) and those which can grow with oxygen but have the ability to also grow without it (facultative aerobes). The obligate aerobes produce more energy from nutrients than anaerobes by using oxygen as the “final electron acceptor in the electron transport chain, which produces most of the ATP in these organisms”(Betsy & Keogh, 2005, p.104). The facultative microorganisms are able to use oxygen but can also go without by using fermentation or anaerobic respiration when it is not available (Betsy & Keogh,2005). The microorganisms being cultured in our first task (Lactobacillus acidophilus and Staphylococcus epidermidis) are obligate aerobes. Microorganisms can grow in a variety of conditions with temperature being one of those variables, but the types we frequently encounter in our environment thrive in fairly warm temperatures. Both Lactobacillus acidophilus and Staphylococcus epidermidis are examples of these, which are referred to as mesophiles. Extreme temperatures (as in deep freezing or auotoclaves for example) are effective in destroying microorganisms due to their inability to thrive outside of more moderate temperatures). Growth of these two organisms would be optimized by remaining between 25 and 40 degrees celsius (Betsy...

...River and the Tigris River (Hollar, 2011). Mesopotamia is recognized as the first civilization. Mesopotamia hand many geological factors that contributed to its success as a society. I believe that Mesopotamia’s location on the globe was its greatest attribution for forming a successful community. This great attribute in addition to the proximity to water sources, the fertileness of the ground and the tempered climate. The location offered for a thriving agricultural community. Farming days had longer hours and seasons lasted longer. Although this land was not perfect it had the makings for what it would take to be a self-sufficient area. Many settlers came to the area do to the large amounts of natural resources (Soomo, 2013). Prompt 2: Potatoes were a great source of diffusion between early human societies. Potatoes were first found in the in the Andes South American mountain area. When potatoes were first discovered there were only two hundred and –thirty five species. News of this new super food began to spread around the world. They were deemed just as important as the major kitchen staples rice, maize or wheat. They were easy to grow and very good for you and were considered to have many healing properties as well. This new super food made its first major debut in Europe and was then transported throughout the world by trading companies, sailors and Conquistadors. It took nearly forty years for word of the potatoes to make it around the world. This......

Efp1 Task 1

...EFP1 Task 1 Thoughts on Cultural Diversity There are many aspects of culture and diversity. Culture is defined as the sum of attitudes and beliefs that distinguish one group of people from another. Culture is transmitted through language, material objects, ritual, institutions and art from one generation to the next. Diversity is defined as variety, the inclusion of individuals representing more than one national origin, color, religion, socioeconomic stratum, sexual orientation, etc. There are many aspects of diversity which include race, ethnicity, physical ability, age, gender, sexual orientation. The four aspects of diversity that have most affected my personal identity are race, age, gender, and physical ability. Gender is one of the most easily of observed areas of cultural diversity. As a woman, especially one living in the south, I am expected to look and act a certain way. I am to be presentable at all times. There are expectation in the way I speak but act as well. The way I am supposed to dress is also defined by our culture. There are certain jobs that I am expected to have and others I am not. The thing with culture is it not only is the visible images we are to portray there are invisible ones as well. Others assume that because I am a woman I am less than a man. There are certain ways I am expected to think as well. What people fail to realize is that I am a very strong willed individual. I am quite educated. I may live in the south now, but I was born......

...Task 2, Community Health (C228) Edward Croston Western Governors University Task 2, Community Health (C228) MEASLES Measles was at one time in the not too distant past, a killer of those that became infected. Measles has been around for centuries. The first published, written account of the disease was in the ninth century by a Persian doctor. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website on measles, it was not until 1757 that a Scottish physician, named Francis Home, proved that something infectious in the blood was causing the disease. By the early 1900’s, the United States began requiring every healthcare provider and laboratory to report all identified cases, with approximately 6,000 deaths being related to measles each year. Almost all children contracted the disease by the time they were the age of 15, with an estimated yearly infection rate of three to four million United States citizens. Each year, it is estimated, 400 to 500 people died from measles, 48,000 hospitalized, and 4,000 developing encephalitis as a side effect of the disease. The measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine was made available to the public in 1963. The MMR has significantly reduced the reported cases of measles. In the year 2000 measles was declared eradicated in the United States. But since then, the disease has returned from time to time. ("Measles History," 2014, p. 2) Measles is a virus that has an incubation period of approximately 14 days. It is......
