How to be Prepared * Electricity, water, gas and telephones may not be working after an earthquake. The police and fire departments are likely to be tied up. You should be prepared to fend for yourself for at least three days, preferably for a week. * You'll need food and water (a gallon a day per person); a first aid kit; a fire extinguisher suitable for all types of fires; flashlights; a portable radio; extra batteries, blankets, clothes, shoes and money (ATMs may not work); medication; an adjustable or pipe wrench to turn off gas or water, if necessary; baby and pet food; and an alternate cooking source (barbecue or camp stove). This list can also be applied to other disasters, such as floods or wildfires. * It’s also a good idea to decide beforehand how and where your family will reunite if separated during a quake and to conduct in-home practice drills. You might choose an out-of-the-area friend or relative that family members can call to check on you. * Securing water heaters, major appliances and tall, heavy furniture to prevent them from toppling are prudent steps. So, too, are storing hazardous or flammable liquids, heavy objects and breakables on low shelves or in secure cabinets. * Discuss earthquake insurance with your agent. Depending on your financial situation and the value of your home, it may be worthwhile.
During an Earthquake * If you're indoors, stay there. Get under -- and hold onto --a desk or table, or stand against an interior wall. Stay clear of exterior walls, glass, heavy furniture, fireplaces and appliances. The kitchen is a particularly dangerous spot. If you’re in an office building, stay away from windows and outside walls and do not use the elevator. * If you're outside, get into the open. Stay clear of buildings, power lines or anything else that could fall on you. * If…...

Baccalaureate Prepared Nurses Versus Associate Prepared Nurses

...Baccalaureate prepared nurses versus Associate prepared nurses Shirley Jones Baccalaureate prepared nurses versus Associate prepared nurses What are the differences between baccalaureates prepared nurses and associates prepared nurses? This has been a topic for discussion for many years. Prior to the modern practice of nursing, the sick were taken care of by the less-than-desirable population such as “sinners, saints or mothers”. (L. Hover, lecture notes, June 2013). Times have changed since the days when prostitutes and women of ill repute or members of religious orders tended to the sick. (L. Hover, lecture notes, June 2013). In today’s nursing, no major differences are noted between the cognitive abilities of students in baccalaureate and associate degree programs (Davis-Martin, 1990). Baccalaureate nurses are generally seen as being better prepared for a wide range of nursing competencies and are seen as performing in the professional role in which they are prepared. Associate degree nurses are seen as performing well in the technical role for which they have been prepared, as well as in some leadership roles for which they were not originally prepared (Davis-Martin, 1990). One difference in competencies between the Associate Degree Nurse (ADN) and the Baccalaureate Degree Nurse (BSN) is the time spent in the formal education process. The associate prepared nurse usually obtains their degree from a community college or junior college whereas the......

They Are Not Prepared

...They are not prepared I look around my work, around my town and I look wherever I go and I see the next generation coming up behind us. I also see the damage we have done not preparing them for the realities of life and not teaching them how to act like adults. Therefore, I spend my free time pondering how to better prepare the upcoming youth to serve their country and to be better able to improve them to make their way in this unforgiving world. When I look to the events that helped shaped me into who I am today, one experience tops the list. My time spent around military and para-military personnel and the training were instrumental in making me the adult I am today. Military training helps mold young boys and girls into the men and women this country needs to defend itself. It could also train the next generations to fend for themselves and help them all become better citizens and fully functioning adults. Why not make it mandatory that all men and women between the ages of 18 and 23 train and serve in some capacity of the U.S. military? It would solve so many problems. It would give the nation’s youth basic job skills and a strong work ethic. Because the U.S. Military is one of the biggest businesses in the world, they always have a variety of jobs they need filled. No experience required, they would pay you while you receive training and employ you once you complete training. Everything from Aircraft Mechanic to Zoologist whatever piques your interest, and......

How Prepared for a Major Overseas War Was Victorian Britain by 1850?

...How prepared for a major overseas war was Victorian Britain by 1850? The British Army experienced huge change during the Napoleonic period (1793 to 1813), which influenced greatly their preparations for war in 1850. At the start of the French Revolutionary wars in 1793 Britain had a small poorly run army, made up of only 40,000 men. The commanders were not properly trained merely give the roles due to their social class and family history. However, by the end of the period the numbers had vastly increased and actually peaked at 250,000 men. The armed forces experienced such changes in this period because warfare changed, war became more industrial and Britain had to accommodate for this. Prior to this period they had mainly been involved in small colonial battles but the threat of France and other European nations meant this would change. On the one hand you could argue Britain was prepared for a major overseas war by 1850. Leading up to this date many changes had been made to the forces that would suggest they would be able to engage in a larger scale war. Britain had emerged as a world super power at this time, world leaders in the improvement of technology, undergoing the industrial revelation in the early part of the 19th centaury. These advancements in Britain’s industry allowed them to create and test new technology to improve many different aspects of their war efforts. The most obvious of which would be weaponry. There were numerous inventors experimenting with...

How Pearland Prepared Me for My Future

...“How has the Pearland Independent School District prepared me for the future?” Almost two years ago I was just a normal student, I did what I needed to get an A or a B and I wasn’t involved in any extracurricular activities, then I moved to Pearland. I had never before been to a school where I wanted to be a part of things, or a school where I felt welcome and accepted. I have been lucky enough to know what career pathway I want to pursue but I had absolutely no clue where to start. When I enrolled in Pearland I was informed that Turner High School down the road has veterinary medicine courses. It was like a dream come true, until I found out that it was too late to enroll at Turner. I thought for sure I was going to have to pass up the opportunity of a lifetime but the counselor worked her magic and got me in the veterinary medicine course at Turner, I would just have to travel between schools. I have wanted to be in FFA for a while but I had never had the opportunity to do so. When I came to Pearland I was finally able to become a part of the organization and I was even in time to raise an animal for major stock shows like the Houston Rodeo. It was a bit intimidating to raise my first animal for a show that had such a large volume of contestants but I had already waited so long for this opportunity. I chose to raise a goat because of how difficult it is to train them considering I like a good challenge. In addition to raising an animal for FFA I was also in LDEs and......

...Environment M odern construction causes unwanted environmental im­pacts and limiting these impacts is within the scope of green building. Perhaps the easiest way to understand green building is to first consider the various environmental impacts that buildings generate and then consider how negative impacts can be reduced or eliminated through more effective planning, design and construction. Modern American buildings impact the environment in the following areas: site selection, materials and resources, energy use and air pollution, water use and quality, and indoor air quality. Site Selection In addition to the impacts housing developments have on the environment, project location can have an even greater impact if it is too distant from community services and infrastructure. This is one area of green building where the larger community context of sustainability (sustaining natural resources for use by future generations) is particularly 1-2 Section One Green Building Basics relevant. If housing development residents have no choice but to travel long distances by automobile to get the basic goods and services they need, the overall development sustainability, regardless of how green the units themselves are, will be compromised. A green built project should not increase the residents’ reliance on the automobile. Projects built on productive farmland or sensitive natural areas, such as wetlands, wildlife corridors or critical habitats further......

Naser, PhD, APRN, CCRP Introduction In an effort to determine whether obtaining a graduate education was going to be beneficial to this writer, several sources were contacted. With the numerous options possible in a nursing career, deciding which avenue to pursue became the most difficult task. After speaking with the Nurse Educator at an institution, it was clear that a master’s in nursing with a concentration in education would be the most likely choice. For the sake of this paper, that nurse educator/the interviewee will be referred to as A.E. and all quotes, unless otherwise noted will be direct dialog from A.E. “Healthcare is ever changing and by continuing education, it puts one in the position to keep abreast of new policies and procedures in nursing.” The previous statement was taken directly from A.E. Overview of Career A.E. began her nursing education in the early 1980’s at Hahnemann University School for Allied Health Professions in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “Nursing school was a lot different than what you get now”, says A.E.

She recalls that Hahnemann University School for Allied Health Professions, which is now Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions, was employed with a male dominated staff.
