Principles of Effective Intervention Many years of scientific study there were psychologist that developed four principles of effect which were called Risk principles, Criminogenic need principles, Treatment principles, and Fidelity principles. The first of the four principles of effective intervention is risk principle. Risk principles means that offenders should be provided with supervision and the treatment levels and it also mean like the risk of crime they commit. According to (Lowenkamp & Latessa 2002) “For our purpose. “risk” refers to the probably of reoffending”. Which means that it targeted high risk offender to help them not to get reoffended. That like certain offense consider low and some high. According to (Latessa 2002)” For example, in the sense that a felon poses a higher risk than a misdemeanor. I actually agree with this system we need to pay a lot more attention to the offender that are more higher risk then all the others. Because to me I feel that they don’t get the help they will do it again. The second principle the criminogenic need principle are attributes of the offender that are directly link to criminal behavior. For example criminogenic is addiction to like alcohol or drug and if your caught drinking while driving they send you to jail but, when you get our there are A.A meeting that you can go to. According to (Wright 2012) “Between 70 and 80 percent of all arrestees have drug and alcohol in their system at the time of their arrest. To me I feel that criminogenic need is good. It can help those that need help with addiction like alcohol it is very serious. The third principle would be the treatment principle which means basically a mixture…...

Teddy Pendergrass

...Pendergrass announced he was retiring in 2006. I thought to myself; “another talent gone to waste”. However; he did perform at the Teddy25 awards ceremony. The ceremony paid tribute to his 25 years since he had the accident. It allowed him to raise money for his, “The Teddy Pendergrass Alliance” which he and his wife Joan founded. Joan was always a great wife and supporter. He had surgery for colon cancer in 2009, which turned out to be successful. Unfortunately; he had complications from the surgery and died of respiratory failure on January 13, 2010. It was a sad day for his fans as well as anyone else that has listened to his music or has read his autobiography. Pendergrass is survived by his mother Ida, wife Joan, three children Teddy II, LaDonna, Tisha, four grandchildren, step daughters Sherilla Leftrade, Jessica Avila, and three step grandchildren. In spite of all the trials and tribulations that Theodore DeReese Pendergrass endured; he never gave up. I could have not imagined how it would have been to be a young high profile star one day and then a paraplegic in a wheelchair the next. Life is but a vapor and we also must be able to fulfill our goal that is set for us without wavering. Maybe his reason for being here was to become the founder of an alliance for other people that are paralyzed and have no resources to help them to excel. There were trials and tribulations all along the way to prevent him from fulfilling his goal. First; his mother had six......

A Ban of Facebook Between Students and Teachers

...A ban that disallowed teachers and students to be "friends" on Facebook and most other online networking sites will remain in place under an updated social media policy the School Committee is slated to take up Tuesday. Meanwhile, an accompanying new acceptable-use policy will expand guidelines for ways that students, staff and other school employees may use the Internet in city school. The revamped policies are going to be designed to be more current with today's technology and social media/Internet practices. "Some teachers have had a great deal of success engaging students through electronic means and we want to accommodate that success where possible", said School Committee member LaDonna Crow. Many other area school districts are in the process of updating policies covering online networking, including Belchertown, Hampshire Regional, Northampton and Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School. In the Hadley schools, a policy adopted in April prohibited teachers and students from being "friends" on social networking sites other than those approved by the district. Easthampton's social media policy takes a similar approach, stating that school staff may not list current students as "friends" on networking sites unless the sites are hosted or approved by the school district. The previous ban referred only to teachers. The proposed policy stated that all "e-contacts with students" should be made through the district's computer and telephone system, except...

The Buck Stops Here

...That is that random drug testing is to truly help those people affected by addiction, giving addicts the motivation to seek help, allowing families once broken by drug addiction to heal. There is also the obligation to the taxpayers that must be considered. Wasting a taxpayer’s money by allowing it to be spent on illegal drugs is wrong and creates a feeling of resentment toward welfare programs and those who are benefiting from these programs. Truly needy families should be getting that money. Every welfare dollar spent on drugs takes a dollar away from a family in need (Vitter, 2011). Placing these conditions on people who receive welfare will eliminate money allotted for this program being spent on illegal drugs. According to LaDonna Pavetti, during her testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, “about 70% of families receiving assistance at a given point and time have already received assistance for at least 24 months and 48% have received assistance for more than 60 months.” (Pavetti, 1996). Of course these families receive assistance for long periods of time. Why wouldn’t they? During the time these families are receiving welfare, what has changed for them? Unfortunately the answer to that question is usually nothing. Pavetti states that the number one reason for a family to remain dependent on welfare is lack of recent work experience and educational attainment (Pavetti, 1996). A welfare reform that limited recipients to four years while at the......

Parenting and Delinquency Rates

...things can be linked back to parenting or lack of parenting. Much of the research I have done talks about family influences on delinquency. However in many cases I think that family is really being used to talk about parenting. In an article about family structure 1 I found discussion of single family households and their likelihood for creating delinquents. But when I look harder I find that it is the parenting or the challenges that single parents face that leads to the delinquency. So in this paper I will try and show that it doesn’t matter what kind of family structure you have it is the parenting you have within that structure that influences child delinquency rates. The textbook references work done by Bruce Wolford and LaDonna Koebel that indicates that chronic underachievers in school are among the most likely to be delinquent. There are lots of additional studies that show how poor academic performance relates to delinquency. What is harder to address is the parent’s role in these academic failures. Involved parents can significantly improve a child’s performance in school. Even parents that didn’t do well in school can help their children succeed by paying attention to school work, providing structured time to do homework and study, and by staying in communication with the teachers or school. Parents that did well in school have an even greater opportunity to support their children because they provide addition instruction in areas where a child may......

Case Study 1

...LaDonna Martin HRM 594 9/9/13 Case Study 1 After reviewing Tanglewood’s Case study, there are many given opportunities throughout the different staffing levels. Tanglewood has overall drifted from the original mission of the company. Although, Tanglewood has grown tremendously in the past years, there is still certain procedure that still needs to be addressed and fixed to ensure Tanglewood is on the path of success with staffing. I will begin with evaluating the thirteen levels of staffing and the four levels of staffing qualities to help based upon the best decision regarding Tanglewood. Acquire or Develop Talent After, reading this case study, it is evident Tanglewood needs to acquire new talent. Tanglewood has urgency needs at this point with staffing. There are so many issues with the management levels. Tanglewood hasn’t been consistent with the management levels as far as not being consistent in how the original stores were built upon versus the additional stores built last. Every time new stores are founded, there have been changes in the management styles. So if Tanglewood acquires new talent, the new employees can bring their talents to the job. This way the new employees can come to the organization fully aware of the job position and wouldn’t need additional training. This would help with extra training since the new employees already have the skills. This method can insure a quick change and help maintain a solid productive workforce. The...

...although Slavik had been unable to speak with Chapman regarding her claim, she had obtained and reviewed the medical records from Chapman's April 10, 2009, emergency room visit. Slavik stated that she was denying Chapman's claim for workers' compensation benefits at that time because she did not have sufficient medical information to document whether an injury occurred at work or the relationship of Chapman's condition to a work-related injury.24 ¶ 24 Eventually, Chapman saw Michael J. Matury, D.C., on June 2, 2009. Dr. Matury diagnosed Chapman with a chronic lumbar strain superimposed upon degenerative disk disease. Although Dr. Matury referenced an MRI of the lumbar spine, he did not report the findings.25 ¶ 25 On June 3, 2009, Chapman saw LaDonna Ladd-Maxwell, MS, APRN, on referral from Dr. Matury.26Ladd-Maxwell saw Chapman for a number of ailments including lumbar pain.27 ¶ 26 On July 3, 2009, Dr. Matury noted that Chapman's lumbar strain had improved slightly.28 ¶ 27 On August 27, 2009, Chapman went to the Great Falls Clinic to seek treatment of her low-back pain.

Dr. Pepper

...his pharmacy work. He then handed over his creation to Morrison and a beverage chemist named Robert S. Lazenby (History of Dr Pepper). In 1891, Morrison and Lazenby formed Artesian Mfg. & Bottling Company in Waco. Eventually, the firm became Dr Pepper Company (History of Dr Pepper). In 1904, Dr Pepper made it's debut at the World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, and soon after became “The King of Beverages”, which was their first original slogan (History of Dr Pepper). One of the most memorable slogans in Dr Pepper history is recalled by Cynthia Gonzales of Hanford, California: “I remember a long time ago that the bottles of Dr Pepper used to say 10, 2, and 4. Meaning, it's good to drink at those times of the day for a pick-me-up.” LaDonna Dedmon of Fresno, California, elaborated on that, saying “That 10, 2, and 4 thing was from the 1950's. They did some research and found that people needed a pick me up at 10:30, 2:30, and 4:30.” Indeed, Dr Pepper used to claim the hours of 10 o'clock, 2 o'clock, and 4 o'clock as “Dr Pepper time”, according to Roger M. Grace in his article “At 10-2 and 4 O'Clock, It Was Dr Pepper Time”. The background of this ad stems from a 1920's study by Dr. Walter Eddy at Columbia University. His study claimed that the body's natural energy drops at 10:30 am, 2:30 pm, and 4:30 pm everyday; however, if you eat or drink something at 10:00 am, 2:00 pm, and 4:00pm everyday, the drop in energy can be avoided. Dr Pepper then took that research......

Community Assessment Nursing located in Ponchatoula. Located in Hammond, the two closest long-term care facilities are Belle Maison and Heritage Manor. A comparison of the 2 facilities’ staff ratings, number of beds, and occupancy rates is presented in Table 1. An interview was conducted with E. LaDonna, RN to acquire information on the health status of Belle Maison and services provided. Belle Maison opened in 1978 to provide long term care to the residents of Ponchatoula, Hammond, and surrounding areas (E. LaDonna, personal communication, September 22, 2014). Nurse LaDonna, is the director of nursing at the home and rates the facilities overall health as an 8 out of 10. She thinks this can be improved by having a doctor available every day instead of one day a week. Most residents here have complications from problems such dementia, diabetes, stroke, and arthritis. To protect residents, there is a strict fall prevention program in place as well as employee screening to prevent elder abuse. Some daily activities available to residents include bingo, arts and crafts, and morning exercises. Some weaknesses of this facility are little family involvement, a lack of doctor assessments, and staff to patient ratio (E. LaDonna, personal communication, September 22, 2014). Home Health. There are two home health agencies located in Ponchatoula. Capital Home Health and Americare Home Health are both located north of city’s center on highway 51 (Advameg Inc., 2014).

Global Communication Gap Analysis

...Running head: GAP ANALYSIS: GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS Gap Analysis: Global Communications LaDonna Smith University of Phoenix Gap Analysis: Global Communications Global Communication has been under pressure to keep up with new technology that its competitors have been giving to consumers for a very long time through local and international markets. They are getting a lot of slack from their stockholders, whose shares have declined more than half in the last couple of years. Also, they are having the Union people stay on them for not treating their employees properly and fairly. Global Communication was not up front with its people and they are now in an up roar about the unethical acts of Global. They plan to go global in hopes that they can now compete with local markets and increase the value of their stock. Situation Analysis Issue and Opportunity Identification Global Communication eventually was faced with the problem of lower stock values, circumstances before hand caused this problem to happen. Not having the ability to keep up with modern technology was the key to Global Communication keeping up with its local markets. “In a world of increasing globalization and cultural diversity, organizations face new opportunities as well as communication challenges,” (McShane, S., & Von Glinow,M. p.78) Having the ability to go global and communicate well is very valuable to any company’s wealth.

Accounting Practices and Entries

...LaDonna Williams Axia College, University Of Phoenix HCA 270 The Accrual basis of accounting is mostly used by profit-oriented organization, accrual basis is a method of accounting, which provides information that accounts are prepared with the financial transactions that are accrued. It says that under this system revenues and expenses should be recognized and reported for the accounting period in which their economic substance is realized not when they got them or paid for in cash. Revenues are realized when earned whether or not they are received in cash. Incurred expenses are matched, to related revenues. It doesn’t matter if they or not such expenses are actually paid in cash. This means that credit sales from 2010 will become part of the final accounts of 2010 even if they don’t get the cash in late February 2011. We all know that utility bills are billed a month after the service has been used. You usually pay your gas bill for November in the month of December. So what will happen is if a business has a year end of December you will most likely pay December’s bill in January. Although it is still unpaid it is a part of 2010’s statement as an accrual. This method of accounting gives a better picture of what we are earning by including both cash and non-cash items when it comes to calculating profit. When calculating profit the accrual does not only take the actual eleven months electricity bill it also includes the one month bill that hasn’t been paid, but the......

Effective Listening Strategies Paper

...Effective Listening Strategies Paper LaDonna Landry BSHS 385 Audra Stinson June 15, 2015 Effective Listening Strategies Paper Thinking and acting in ways that connect you to a person that is speaking is attentive listening. The benefits of listening are codependent and synergistic not many people are attentive listeners but if they can possess the skill of listening there are many benefits. Some benefits are respect, airtime, information, increased likability, better relationship and clarity. When you are giving you full listening attention you are showing respect and in turn gain the respect of the speaker. If you listen first to the speaker usually the speaker will return the favor. I say usually because it depends upon the individual and what may be going on with them such as self-absorption, stress or other reason that they might not lend their ear as the listener has done. Attentive listening helps to get information so that you can learn more about the person. The more you know about the individual the more you can do to assist them. People like to be listened to the more you listen to people the more you like them and the more you listen to the person talking the more they began to like you just for the fact that you listened. Listening creates a feeling of goodwill in relationships. If you are to listen to others problems non-judgmentally this gives the individual a chance to hear themselves and possibly find their own solution to their problem. ......

Consensual Relationship Contract

...Running head: Consensual Relationship Contract Leadership and Organizational Behavior-BUS 520 LaDonna Oliver Instuctor: Dr. Elizabeth Strayer University July 19, 2012 Abstract With employees spending more time together in the workplace, consensual relationships are becoming more common in the workplace. This workplace romance has caused major concerns for companies and their human resource professionals. This ongoing behavior has existed many decades and is becoming more prevalent in the workplace. According to a survey by,47 percent of 1000 professionals survey had been involved in an office romance, and another 19 percent would consider it (Hellriegel, Slocum 2009) Michelle and Barack Obama, Bill and Melinda Gates, Olivia Chow and the late Jack Layton are a few of the many employees who met in the work place and later married. The workplace continues to be the foundation of which many healthy relationships are established, yet those relationships gone badly have resulted in consequence for the employee as well the employer, whereas costly and timely claims of sexual harassment cost employers millions of dollars. Scandals such as Charles Thomas/Anita Hill, Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinski, and Joe Patrino/Jessica Dorrell just to name a few have tainted the ethic culture of the workplace. In an effort to reduce romance in the workplace, an increasing numbers of employers are instituting consensual......
