In recent years and in the past there have been constant changes in the selling of music cds by corporations within the industry. Over the years many different situations have caused music corporations abroad to be faced with negative results and now just as before new problems exist which must be analyzed and corrected or the industry will suffer. In the nineties events such as mega retailers undercutting prices of the industry contributed to what was considered as the major music selling problems them. Within the last several years until now, factors such as file sharing and lower value ratings on music have caused today’s situation to reach levels of disaster far worst then in the past.

Cuban Missle Crisis

...aim of this "quarantine," as he described his plan of action, was to prevent the Soviet Union from dispatching more military supplies, rendering the construction of the missile sites impossible. He demanded the removal of the missiles already there along with the complete destruction of any and all nuclear development sites on the island. On October 22 of the same year, President Kennedy spoke to the nation about the crisis in a televised address after deciding that the citizens of America had the right to know about the deadly affairs. Before the idea of the blockade was accepted, President Kennedy considered two remaining options. The first being an air strike primarily against the Cuban missile bases, and the second a naval blockade of Cuba, which came to be the plan of action accepted in the future. A full-scale invasion was not the administration's first option due to how it would badly damage America in a backlash effect. Robert McNamara supported the naval blockade as a strong but limited military action that left the US in control. However, the term "blockade" was problematic. According to international law a blockade is an act of war, but the Kennedy administration did not believe that the Soviet Union would be provoked to attack by a mere blockade. Additionally, legal experts at the State Department and concluded that a spate law could be used in their favor to avoid an indirect declaration of war. Latin America’s participation in Cuba’s quarantine consisted of......

The Cuban Missile Crisis

...ready. If the public found out, the nation would panic. Consequently, Kennedy broke off no public engagements for the next four days. (Larson, Wiersma, 1997) By Oct. 20, the EX COMM had reached an agreement in favor of a naval "quarantine" on Soviet military shipments to Cuba with the intention that it would to force Khrushchev's to have to make a decision. John McCone ( CIA Director) at first favored immediate air strikes but soon agreed that a quarantine combined with a deadline for withdrawing the missiles was the best option. The president announced the presence of the missiles and the imposition of the quarantine to the world in a television address on the evening of Oct. 22. On October 22, Kennedy in a televised speech, acknowledged to the world that the United States was imposing a naval " quarentine " around the island of Cuba to prevent the further shipment of missiles and of parts for the completion of the missile sites. The president also demanded that the Soviets pull out all of their weaponry from Cuba. In the speech Kennedy gave the nation, he would use the word “quarantine” instead of " blockade.” This suggestion was an important one. A blockade, as defined under international treaties is an act of war. A quarantine, on the other hand, is merely an attempt to keep something unwanted out of a particular area. To summarize the speech, the U.S. could have its blockade but the international community would not consider it an act of war. The......

Progress in Community and Public Health Nursing

...Progression in community and public health nursing Kristine Porritt NUR/405 April 5, 2014 Karen Wilson Progression in community and public health nursing There has been much advancement in the nursing profession over the centuries but three key points in time stand out; The Marine Hospital Service Act of 1798, The Port Quarantine Act of 1878 and the National Health Department establishment in 1879. These three separate acts improved our medical and nursing system to what it is today; the introduction of pre-paid medical plans, isolation/quarantine for those that are infected and the beginning of medical research. These have been an influential part of how the community and public health nurse can provide the best care for the public. Event or Influence: Quasi War 1798; Marine Hospital Service Act 1798 | Key health issues | Navy seamen fighting in the Quasi War against the French were coming back with injuries, diseases and disabilities. How would these men be treated? What should the procedure or protocol be? There needed to be a way for Naval personnel to be treated medically for wounds, sickness, disease and other ailments. | Perspective/goals | The goal of this act was to provide medical treatment to seamen that had been injured, sick or become disabled. | Role/functions | Hospital services were provided to marine personnel. This hospital became a component of the Treasury Department. The service provided to the seamen had a price tag, 20 cents was......

...continental United States. As a condition of entry, apples from areas in China in which the Oriental fruit fly (Bactrocera dorsalis) is not known to exist would have to be produced in accordance with a systems approach that would include requirements for registration of places of production and packinghouses, inspection for quarantine pests at set intervals by the national plant protection organization of China, bagging of fruit, safeguarding, labeling, and importation in commercial consignments. Apples from areas in China in which Oriental fruit fly is known to exist could be imported into the continental United States if, in addition to these requirements, the apples are treated with fumigation plus refrigeration. All apples from China would also be required to be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate with an additional declaration stating that all conditions for the importation of the apples have been met and that the consignment of apples has been inspected and found free of quarantine pests. This action would allow for the importation of apples from China into the continental United States while continuing to provide protection against the introduction of quarantine pests.

Fish Keeping in an Aquarium

...and swirling colors, in the end is the loss worth it? Before a fish is placed into an aquarium it goes through quarantine. Quarantine can be described as a different process to most facilities, but one goal is in common, to add "healthy" fish to the main exhibits. Most fish are brought in from an extremely stressful transfter that consists of being shipped in small, air depleted bags (yes, fish do breath oxygen from the water that is taken from outside air mixed into the water; dissolved oxygen) and temperature fluctuations that leave the animals immunity lessened. After they are acclimated, some quickly, the are introduced into quarantine tanks. At a proper aquarium the fish is given time to get used to the surroundings and usually should be observed eating before any chemicals are added to the tank, some, however begin right away. A common chemical used is Copper. Copper is deadly to fish in high doses, but if you use just the right amount you can kill any "hitchhikers";parasites that have survived the trip. This may be used in conjuction with other chemicals and temperature fluctuations to produce a parasite free specimen. Imagine yourself packed into a tiny box depleted of air, added to an alien environment and then made sick by chemicals, that if measured at all incorrectly will in fact kill you. Most fish do not eat during the Copper period of the quarantine and this lasts at some places for 30 days. This is considered standard to make sure the parasite that is......

How the Bubonic Plague Was a Turning Point in History

...already sick without increasing everyone else’s risk around you of contracting the illness. Without the plague, we may not have developed the quarantine until much later in time –if ever. Even though the exercise of quarantine has been used in the times of the Old Testament with the separation of lepers, it was not until the 14th century when the quarantine was used systematically. The first practices of the quarantine were in Italy, where infected ships were mandated to anchor offshore for forty days before coming into port to dock. In fact, quarantine comes from the mid-seventeenth century Italian word ‘quarantina’ which meant ‘forty days’ (Tyson). This form of quarantine was to be expected during such troubling times. In 1374, the Duke of Milan ordered that those infested with the plague were to be taken far from the city and positioned in a field or forest away from town until they either recuperated or died. In 1377, the town of Ragusa instituted a sort of quarantine station. This station was where newcomers from regions infected with the plague were forced to go and be secluded for a month of “purification” (Tyson). Later on in 1403, Venice created the world’s first known maritime quarantine station (‘lazaretto’) on an island located in the Venetian lagoon. Over a century later, in 1521, France opened its first maritime quarantine station located at Marseilles. A century later, a law would be passed mandating that foreign travelers could not enter the city without the......

...New York revises controversial policy on Ebola quarantines amid pressure New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) on Sunday revised a controversial policy to quarantine returning health-care workers from Ebola-stricken nations, under pressure from the Obama administration and medical experts over the aggressive measures. Elaborating on the procedures, Cuomo said health-care workers who have been in contact with Ebola patients but do not show symptoms of the deadly virus can return to their homes but will be forced to remain there while being monitored by state health officials for symptoms. He said those being monitored can interact with family and friends. “It’s not like this is the toughest duty,” Cuomo said in a news conference late Sunday with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D). The change separates the state’s quarantine process from that of New Jersey, which has come under scrutiny after the weekend retention of a nurse who showed no symptoms of Ebola. Kaci Hickox, who returned from Sierra Leone after working with Doctors Without Borders, has been held in isolation at a site attached to a New Jersey hospital. On Sunday, Hickox told CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union”: “This is an extreme that is really unacceptable, and I feel like my basic human rights have been violated.” Cuomo said New York’s new policy is more in line with those of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He said people who are quarantined in their homes will be able to interact......

Communicable Disease Paper

...the disease outbreak is noted. This allows them to get a functioning plan in place, and plan for a way to allocate doctors and resources towards combatting the outbreak of Ebola. In America, the public health community does not spend a great deal of time worrying about the Ebola virus, nor should it. The fact of the matter is that due to environmental factors it is less likely to cause a major problem in the United States. The main way organizations deal with Ebola outbreaks is by quarantine. (Gonzalez, 2007) Since there is no known cure for Ebola, quarantine is the only really effective solution. The Center for Disease Control has practiced its Ebola quarantine numerous times in America in practice, and once for real; there was a potential outbreak in Virginia caused by imported monkeys in nineteen eighty nine. As of right now, medical technology has not caught up to the devastation caused by Ebola. Any plan or attempt to ensure a quality health approach can only be based in quarantine and making a victim as comfortable as possible. Ebola has killed roughly ninety percent of the victims it has infected, which means that it is still a disease which science has not fully grown to understand. In conclusion, the Ebola virus is one of the scariest ailments a person can come down with. Its horrible method of killing, as well as its extremely high mortality rate makes it a fearsome opponent for local doctors, nongovernmental organizations, and state level medical......

Unit 8 Nt 2580

...Some of the strategies to harden a VPN Network are: Quarantine Control Quarantine Control provides phased network access for remote (VPN) clients by restricting them to a quarantine mode before allowing them access to the network. After the client computer configuration is either brought into or determined to be in accordance with your organization's specific quarantine restrictions, standard VPN policy is applied to the connection, in accordance with the type of quarantine you specify. Quarantine restrictions might specify, for example, that specific antivirus software is installed and enabled while connected to your network. Although Quarantine Control does not protect against attackers, computer configurations for authorized users can be verified and, if necessary, corrected before they can access the network. A timer setting is also available, which you can use to specify an interval at which the connection is dropped if the client fails to meet configuration requirements. VPN client credentials The credentials received by Forefront TMG when a user connects through a VPN client connection can vary depending on the connection scenario. When a user establishes a VPN connection from a client computer, Forefront TMG associates those credentials with the connection. Note that if other users use that connection, Forefront TMG will not receive their credentials, but will continue to associate the traffic with the credentials used to establish the connection, which could...

Quarantine and Isolation

...Isolation is used to separate ill persons who have a communicable disease from those who are healthy. Isolation restricts the movement of ill persons to help stop the spread of certain diseases. For example, hospitals use isolation for patients with infectious tuberculosis. Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms. Quarantine can also help limit the spread of communicable disease. The issues I chose was yellow fever. Yellow fever is a viral disease that is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected mosquitoes. Yellow fever occurs in tropical regions of Africa and in parts of South America. Although yellow fever is rare here in the US I feel it is important for it to be regulated by US public health law because with the laws in place it could make it mandatory for US travelers to get vaccinated against it instead of just having it highly recommended for travelers. If this vaccination was mandatory not only for US travelers but also for those individuals residing in the area were yellow fever is prone we could prevent this disease from becoming an epidemic. This is important because without knowledge and education and a standard put into place we could be affecting more people with the unknown without even knowing it. I feel very......

Ebola: Quarantine to Control the Outbreak

...EBOLA: Quarantine to control the outbreak One evening, as I sat on the couch relaxing from the stressful day I had; my eleven years old daughter came to me terrified saying, "mom I'm afraid, the Ebola is here". I immediately comforted her while silently worrying about the virus to myself. That made me pursue information about the virus and learn how to protect my family from the outbreak. Ebola is an awful virus which has many symptoms among bleeding causing death. There is currently no vaccine or cure for Ebola, the cost to treat the virus can be very high, and many medical centers may be ill-equipped to handle Ebola patients. After learning how deadly the virus can be that's when I decided that anyone entering the country from affected countries should be on a mandatory quarantine for twenty-one days to ensure they are Ebola free before possibly exposing any Americans to the virus. Ebola, also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, was discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River; thus how the virus was named. Since its discovery outbreaks have occurred intermittently of the years in Africa. The natural host of the Ebola virus remains unknown to this day. Although, many researchers believe that the virus likely came from bats. There are a total of five strains of the virus; four of which are known to infect humans. Nonhuman primates such as monkey and gorillas can be infected by all five strains. According to the CDC, scientist believe that the first patient becomes......

Quarantine and Isolation

...Introduction The statutory authority for imposing quarantines and isolations in the United States originally began at the local level in colonial times. The federal statutes came into existence at approximately the same time (1796). Later the federal statute was replaced by maritime quarantine inspection system (JAMA, 286/21/2711. downloaded 06/15/09). A far cry from the operations in place for quarantine and isolation in modern society, the institutions of the past, run by the local governments, consisted of, what was known as pest houses. People with contagious diseases were isolated in these institutions to prevent the spread of such diseases as, cholera, smallpox, typhoid, or yellow fever. Pest houses functioned mainly in seaport areas to prevent disease from entering the large cities. Contagious-disease and tuberculosis hospitals were to become the next means of infection control, and are the predecessors of the modern quarantine and isolation practices used today. Quarantine and Isolation are the most common public health strategies used to protect the general public by reducing and preventing the exposure, and spread of deadly, or infectious agents. Medical quarantine and isolation safeguards and prevention practices of today have evolved into strategic operations that are well planned, well designed, with a defined organizational structure that strives to meet the needs of public infection control. The federal, state and local governments each have their own......

...service Act to isolate and quarantine individuals and groups traveling in the U.S. or between states.” Pursuant to inherent “’Police powers’ to protect health, safety, and general welfare within their borders,” the state have the authority to issue isolation and quarantine orders to control the spread of Webola. According to the Act, an quarantine “[I]s the physical separation and confinement of a an individual or groups of individuals, who are or may have been exposed to a contagious or possibly contagious disease and who do not show signs or symptoms of a contagious disease, from non-quarantined individuals, to prevent or limit the transmission of the disease to non-quarantined individuals.” ​On the other hand, isolation “[I]s the physical separation and confinement of an individual or groups of individuals who are infected or reasonably believed to be infected with a contagious or possibly contagious disease from non-isolated individuals, to prevent or limit the transmission of the disease to non-isolated individuals.” So in other words quarantine is recommended for those who have been exposed to Webola, while those who are known or suspected to infected to be placed in isolation. ​The health department should isolate Dr. Daper and treat his symptoms. Isolation and movement restriction on Dr. Daper would be removed upon determination by the health department that he is no longer considered to be infectious. The health department should only quarantine the convention......

Moscow Plague and Riot of 1771

...and booty. (Melikishvili, 2006) The news was hailed and exaggerated by adversaries of Russia. Commanding general von Stoffeln coerced army doctors to conceal the outbreak, which was not made public until Gustav Orreus, a Russian-Finnish surgeon reporting directly to Field Marshal Pyotr Rumyantsev, examined the situation, identified it as plague and enforced quarantine in the troops. Shtoffeln, however, refused to evacuate the infested towns and himself fell victim to the plague in May 1770. Of 1,500 patients recorded in his troops in May-August 1770, only 300 survived. [ (Melikishvili, 2006) ] Medical quarantine checkpoints instituted by Peter I and expanded by Catherine II were sufficient to prevent plague from reaching inside the country in peacetime, but they proved to be inadequate in time of war. The first plague casualties in Moscow were recorded in November 1770. In December, a mass outbreak occurred in a military hospital. Twenty-seven inmates fell sick and only five survived. Hospital surgeon Afanasy Shafonsky promptly identified the disease as bubonic plague, locked up the hospital and installed a strict quarantine. Doctor Rinder, his superior, discarded Shafonsky's report as medically incompetent and causing undue panic. (Melikishvili, 2006) Although the medical council convened on the next day, upheld Shafonsky's viewpoint, and alerted Catherine and Saltykov, Rinder continued defaming Shafonsky and on January 21, 1771 made an official statement claiming that......

...for instance marketing, information technology, manufacturing and finance. In this case it may be understood that logistics management is constituted in the control of supply chain processes of goods. These processes involves the arrangement, execution and control in an effective and efficient way product storage and services aimed at meeting expectations from customers (John and Langley, 2002). Activities of online logistics for instance operations that involve sourcing, international transportation as well as customs and quarantine and inspection clearance can greatly contribute to there being products of low costs and increased value to both time and place utility. This is an analysis of logistics management being a case study of an online store in the state of Australia. Low Cost Singaporean sourcing operations, supplier selection, evaluation and procurement, international transportation from Singapore to Australia and Australian Quarantine and Inspection clearance may contribute to lowered products costs in Australia. The named three activities may be carried out in the online store leading to a competitive advantage. This may be in regards to how the products are priced. Singaporean sourcing operations supplier selection, evaluation and procurement would aid in there being low priced products in Australia due to the fact that Singapore is capable of manufacturing goods at costs that are very low. Additionally the new Australian online store can......
