Diagnosis (1)
Primary Diagnosis:

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Patho-Physiology:
A progressive disease that is associated with difficulty breathing due to severe injuries to the pulmonary alveoli. The cause of this disease is the continuous exposure to cigarette smoke either actively or passively, and contaminated environments which reduces the shortness of breath and chest tightness. COPD may appear as two distinct disorders: emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema is the broadening of the alveoli and the destruction of their walls.
Chronic bronchitis is manifested as a chronic persistent cough that produces sputum and it is not due to an apparent clinical cause, like lung cancer, but rather the dilation of the bronchial glands that causes excessive mucus secretion.
Both diseases are closely linked and often occur simultaneously, or one ends up causing the other.

Post Modernism

...International Journal of Arts and Sciences 3(15): 238-254 (2010) CD-ROM. ISSN: 1944-6934 © InternationalJournal.org Filipino Philosophy and Post-Modernity Raymundo R. Pavo, University of the Philippines Mindanao, Philippines Abstract: Post-Modernity, with its stress on freedom and creativity, is a vantage point that can dispose Filipino thinkers to philosophically formulate, construct and develop thought systems. This liberating milieu can be reckoned as a fertile occasion where Filipinos can explore the conditions of possibilities that grant a philosophical status to thoughts, statements or constructions that either come from or pertain to the Filipino mind. Such that when we use the concept Filipino Philosophy, we are well-conscious of these two interrelated points – The Identity and Referential Nature of the concept Filipino, and the connotation/intension of the term Philosophy. Is it Filipino? Is it philosophical? These are the questions that have guided the ruminations in this philosophical treatise. And as an initial insight to such questions, we propose a kind of vantage point that can address the identity and referential nature of the term Filipino in a Filipino Philosophy and the philosophical substance of its claim. This perspective, we shall argue, may be construed by a social-scientist-philosopher. As a social scientist, this thinker is mindful of the descriptions or characteristics that may be regarded as telling of the Filipino milieu. As a philosopher,......

Initial Public Offerings

...Since the company is looking to transform from Private to Public they will need to go through the process of an Initial Public offering. An initial public offering is a company’s first time offer of common stock to the general public. As a privately held company expands it may need more funds than it can obtain through borrowing. A common first step in the case of IPO’s is to obtain private equity from venture capitalist. These investors seek to invest in firms that offer high potential growth over time. These venture capitalist typically look for investments Ranging from 2-5 years. Therefore firms will not only use IPOs to obtain new funding but also a way to offer venture capitalist to cash in on their investments. In most cases firms entering IPOs are not known well among investors because of this they must provide detailed information about their operations and financial conditions in a professional document known as a prospectus. This prospectus is typically written by an underwriter hired by the firm. Typically this underwriter is an investment banking firm who absorbs the risk of the initial cost of the IPO. The prospectus must also contain risks involved with the company. It is intended to provide potential investors with the information they need to decide while debating to invest in a company. Within 30 days of the developed prospectus the Securities Exchange Commission will assess the prospectus to determine if it has sufficient information relevant to investors...

Gatsby Initial Impressions

...Initial impressions of Gatsby - Chapters 1-4 We see and hear relatively little of Gatsby in the opening chapter of the novel; he is presented as an almost ephemeral, ghost like figure. However we are drawn to his character by the way he is described: ‘There was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life’. Consequently, Every time he is mentioned there is always something to interrupt which adds to the mysteriousness of his character. At the end of chapter 1 we catch a glimpse of him where he is bonded with strong romantic imagery, he comes out to see ‘the silver pepper of the stars’ and is spotted when ‘the silhouette of a moving cat wavered across the moonlight’. Fitzgerald combines the purity and romance of Gatsby’s dream with these symbols. On the contrary when he gives a ‘sudden imitation that he was content to be alone’ by stretching out his arms towards the ‘dark water in a curious way’ the purity of his character seems to disappear as the ‘single green light, minute and far away’ suggests the ill omen of his character. In Chapter 3 Fitzgerald uses the part scene to introduce Gatsby to the reader, here Gatsby emerges as a mysterious character who is the subject of gossip, He is well known but ironically nobody seems to have any verifiable information about him. Nick then describes him and says ‘he had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it’ the way Gatsby us portrayed is one of extreme modesty, he......

Proposed Marketing Plan 5.1 Target Segment 5.2 Positioning 5.3 Strategy 5.4 Conclusion 1. Market Analysis The repositionable notes market is made up of paper or tabs with adhesive, which allows the product to be stuck on surfaces and moved, without leaving residue. They are also known as ‘sticky notes’ and the idea was first conceived by 3M innovators. Post-it, the original inventor of ‘sticky notes’ have seen other competitors entering the market, yet having little success in toppling Post-it as the market leader. This is especially so in Singapore, where most of the brands shy away from competing head-on with Post-it, by differentiating their products. 1.1 Market Environment 1.1.1 Technology The ease of accessing wireless networks via Wireless@SG, since its introduction in 2006, has led to a surge in consumers switching to 3G phones. The implications of this on the repositionable notes market is that gadgets like phones are increasingly being used as a substitute in place of sticky notes, in reminding people of certain events or things. Instead of physically placing a post-it on the desk, people choose to set reminders on their phones, with alarms. People also choose to send short......

Initial Offerring

...Initial Public Offering All firms must have a source of funds to acquire assets and retire outstanding debt. One possible source for these funds includes savers who are not currently using all of their income to buy goods and services. The transfer of these funds may occur indirectly through a financial intermediary or directly through the purchase of securities issued by firms. The investment bankers act as a middleman between the firm and investors who underwrites the securities and guarantee the issuing firm a specified amount of money. The SEC also enforces the federal securities laws that govern the trading of corporate stocks and bonds in the secondary markets. The intent of SIPC is to increase public confidence in the securities industry by reducing the risk of loss from a failure by a brokerage firm. Investment Banker and Underwriter The initial public offering (IPO), involves many pieces coming together to offer an organization’s shares to public. When high-level issues of financial organization come into play, investment bankers are hired to provide advice (The Princeton Review, 2014). Once investors make the IPO the investment banker acts as a middle man. Their role is to sell the stock to the public while bringing the investors and the firm offering the shares together. “The firm in need of funds approaches the investment bankers to discuss an underwriting (Mayo, 2012, p. 37." Based on the investment banker’s guarantee to sell, an underwriter purchases the......

Notes on Post-Fordism and Post-Modernism

...Notes on post-Fordism and postmodernism Post-Fordism and Postmoderism: * Capitalism requires a large number of low-skilled workers willing to put up with alienating, repetitive work on mass production assembly lines. This system is often called Fordism because the Ford motor company was the first to introduce this. * Bowles and Gintis’ correspondence principle states that school mirrors the work place, and see the mass education system as preparing pupils to accept this kind of work. * Postmodernists argue that this view is out-dated and that society has entered a new postmodern phase and are now fundamentally different from the modern society that both Marxists and Functionalists have written about. * Postmodernists reject the Marxist idea that we still live in a two class society, and the claim that education reproduces class inequality. * They argue that class divisions are no longer important and that society is now much more diverse an fragment. * Postmodernists also argue that the economy has shifted away from assembly-line mass production and is now based on ‘flexible specialisation’ where production is customised for small specialist markets. * The Post-Fordism system requires a skilled, adaptable workforce able to use advanced technology and transfer their skills rapidly from one specialised task to another. * Post-Fordism calls for a different kind of education system where instead of preparing pupils to be low-skilled, low-paid...

Initial Public Offerings

...research, and preparation that goes into an initial public offering. Setting a price for the IPO is a critical step with several factors to consider. Most new securities have their price set by an underwriter. One thing an underwriter must consider is the consequences of setting the issue price of the new offering. If the price is too high, the investment bank that initially purchases the securities will have trouble selling them. If the price is too low, the issuing company will not realize the income that it otherwise could. Either of these two scenarios can have a detrimental effect on the investment bank, issuing company, or both. Market research is necessary to understanding how the forces of supply and demand will affect the original value of a stock. (Raice, 2012). Risk and Securities Laws Investing in a newly offered stock has inherent risks associated with the investment. An IPO may have little or no demand in the market. Researching demand for the IPO and considering its performance at present and future market conditions will help reduce marketplace risk. Financial risk is fundamental to investing. By analyzing a company's financial statements and other financial information, an investor can determine the likelihood of the offering producing a profit for investors. The market has proven to be volatile and hard to predict accurately. Market conditions have a lot to do with the risk of investment. An IPO by definition is the initial offering of the stock. As......

Initial Counseling

...Date of Counseling: 17 October 2011 Subject: Initial counseling For: SGT Pereyra, Francisco J. 6. You are overall responsible for the accountability of your soldiers. I believe that soldiers should work smart and hard during the normal duty day so that we can maximize time off and maintain normal work hours. However, mission will at times dictate weekends or late nights upon approval from the Battalion Commander. We can avoid self-inflicted problems by keeping track of appointments, breaks, and other situations that interfere with the mission. Remember soldiers take the initiative when the example is set. All appointments will be brought to my attention at least 2 days prior, emergencies are understood but they should be the exception rather than the rule. If you believe a soldier should receive time off, bring it to my attention. Keep me informed! Open communication is the key to success. 7. Maintenance of your equipment is essential to success of the mission. You will ensure that your vehicles are properly maintained and service (if any). Your soldiers will be licensed on all platoon equipment. You will strictly enforce SAFETY at all times by word of mouth and example. 8. As Noncommissioned Officers we have the authority to discipline our soldiers. Discipline takes many forms including: on the spot corrections, verbal counseling, formal counseling, corrective training and the commander/1SG can support us with other useful methods including......

Post Negotiation

...Post-Negotiation Report on Overtime rate, hours of work & Shift Premiums (Union-The United Metalworkers of Canada) Post-negotiation (Overtime rate, hours of work & Shift premium) During negotiation, we came across few issues that we did not include in our original planning book. The clause of overtime took a major part of our discussion time. Wages, overtime and benefits were the only clauses where we had to make calculations and required the company’s financial standing. Some of the errors that we made in the overtime clause were: * As compared to the company’s financial standing, our opening position was quite smaller in values. We were unsure, that if it would be possible to inflate the values while negotiating. We increased the values of our overtime and shift premium rates while bargaining. Our new rates fell in place in terms of the budget was not going higher than the financial standing of the management. Our target position was similar to the management’s fallback. * In our original planning book, we did not consider the issue of how the overtime employees will be assigned. Management wanted to be deciding on who will be assigned for overtime hours, however, we wanted it to be entirely voluntary. As our opening position, we would keep overtime as being voluntary based and management cannot force or assign any worker without asking. * We also included switching shifts option in our new planning book. We think it is necessary as it can......
