Today’s society is faced with violence in the workplace. One of the main things that happens and continues to happen is “Cyber bullying”. Cyber bullying is defined as any type of negative act that happens on a frequent basis, whether it is face to face, via text message, via email, or on the Internet. Also, bullying can come from the manager and/or supervisor, as to where they constantly are bothering you about the workload. There are many forms of bullying that may lead to violence in the workplace: face-to-face, cyber bullying, e bullying, SMS bullying, mobile bullying, digital bullying, and online. Bullying has been found to occur between children and adolescents. Face to face bullying happens because of an imbalance of power, which is when a person has insecure issues about themselves they try to bring other people down as well. When individuals bully it is more then likely because they have had a rough upbringing or they want people to feel the same pain that they are going through. Cyber bullying is when a human being uses computer technology to send derogatory or life threatening messages to an individual. They might also post personal information and make it publicly noticeable so it will embarrass that individual. E-bullying is another that can lead to violence in the workplace, personal information, hatred messages, or threatening messages are sent through emails. Technology has changed where people could record videos and email them to an individual. Researchers did a self-report measure and a behavioral inventory on thirty-five males. This study was to see how many people were being bullied on a regular basis. They didn’t get a good response because a lot of the males felt that they would be less of a man if people knew they were being bullied. They felt the survey…...

...JOURNAL REVIEW FOOD SAFETY & SANITATION INFANT BOTULISM IN HONEY By: Angela Indryana (03420100086) Zefanya Tjokrodiredjo (03420100087) FOOD TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT FACULTY OF INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY UNIVERSITAS PELITA HARAPAN KARAWACI 2012 CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Honey is a natural food, mainly composed of a complex mixture of carbohydrates and other minor substances, such as organic acids, amino acids, proteins, minerals, vitamins, and lipids. It has two sources of contamination with microorganisms: primary sources include pollen, the digestive tracts of honey bees, dust, air, soil and nectar; secondary sources are those arising from honey manipulation by people, they include air, food handlers, cross-contamination, equipment and buildings. Spores of Clostridium botulinum may be found in honey, usually at low levels. C. botulinum spores are found in soil and dust and hence, can contaminate different agricultural products. Honey is a recognized vehicle for C. botulinum spores. The presence of spores of Clostridium is especially dangerous for infants and small children. Although the high sugar content, low pH, low protein concentration, and the existence of different oxidases and other antimicrobial substances in honey may cause the spores unable to germinate and grow in the product, the microenvironment may remain anaerobic as a consequence of high viscosity. Yet existing spores may not be removed from honey or destroyed without spoiling the product,......

...Journal Article Review I Lauren Pedersen Liberty University Journal Article Review Summary Spousal emotional abuse is ongoing, significant problem, impacting nearly 35% of women. Emotional abuse by a spouse or romantic partner can often lead to negative psychological outcomes, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, posttraumatic stress disorder, learned helplessness, and resentment of the abuser that persists even when the abuse ends. There have not been designated therapies designed to help these women. Gayle L. Reed and Robert D. Enright (2006) examine the roles forgiveness therapy has on emotionally abused women in the article The Effects of Forgiveness Therapy on Depression, Anxiety, and Posttraumatic Stress for Women After Spousal Emotional Abuse. According to Reed and Enright (2006), forgiveness therapy is designed to help the client let go of the anger and resentment that stems from a justifiable wrongdoing. The researchers believe that forgiveness therapy will be beneficial to the women who were emotionally abused by their spouse because it targets the resentment the woman has for the abuser. These emotionally abused women often times experience learned helplessness and accusatory suffering. Learned helplessness often occurs when women develop self-blame in response to their abusive spouse’s criticism and ridicule. Whereas accusatory suffering is when the emotional abused spouse continues to feel like the victim and hold onto the resent. Because of......

...Journal Article Review Chamberlain College of Nursing NR 305 RN Health Assessment Journal Article Review Introduction “A guide to taking a patient’s history” was written by Hilary Lloyd and Stephen Craig. The article was published in the December 5, 2007 issue of Nursing Standard. The article discusses the process of taking a patient history, preparing the environment, communication, and the importance of order. Summary of Article The patient history is an important part of the patient assessment that nurses conduct. The article provides steps on how to take a full and detailed patient history. The first step before obtaining a patient history is obtaining consent from the patient. The patient must be able to provide consent if they are able to act on their own free will and are able to understand what they have agreed to. The next step is preparing the environment. Preparing the environment includes: ensuring that the environment is safe for both the patient and the nurse, maintaining privacy, protecting patient confidentiality, and allowing enough time to complete the assessment. Communication is the next step. During this step, the nurse introduces themselves to the patient. Using active listening and allowing the patient to tell their story is very important during this step. Use of technical terms should be avoided. Questioning should begin with open-ended questions. Examples include: “Tell me about your health problems” or “How does the affect......

...Low Income Living Arrangements and Child Development Alzier Johnson-Gomez Housatonic Community College May 12, 2014 Abstract This study was conducted by researchers at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and the University of Chicago by E. Michael Foster and Ariel Kalil; it was published in the November/December 2007 issue of the journal Child Development. It used longitudinal data from approximately 2,000 low-income families, in order to compare the development of children living only with their mothers with children in other arrangements (those living with their biological fathers, in blended families, and in multigenerational households) to determine the effect of living arrangements on the children’s cognitive achievement and emotional adjustment. Instead of comparing children in different family arrangements at one point in time, the researchers addressed how children and their families change over time. Allowing them to consider whether and how a child’s emotional and intellectual development changes after there has been a change in family structure. The study found that in general, children’s performance on developmental assessments changed very little after their mothers married. The absence of a relationship between family structure and children’s outcomes suggests that there is as much diversity within families of a given type as there is across families of different types. This distinction implies that policies like income support that seek to......

...Journal Article Review Health Assessment Introduction Hilary Lloyd and Stephen Craig outline the process of using a systematic approach on obtaining a comprehensive patient history. In order to gather the history properly, the nurse also has to use their interpersonal communication skills in an efficient and professional manner along with an assessment of the individual and their surrounding environment. Once you establish a comfortable environment for the patient, you can utilize your nursing skills to obtain a comprehensive history and present it in an orderly fashion. Summary of Article Craig and Lloyd (2007) emphasize that obtaining a patient history is “arguably the most important aspect of patient assessment” (p. 42). The nurse’s role in the health care field is every changing but utilizing the information given to them by the patient is critical in proper assessment of the problem at hand. The first step in being able to gather information from the patient is establishing an environment that is conducive to the patient and nurse interaction. The environment should be “accessible, appropriately equipped, free from distractions and safe for the patient and the nurse” (Craig, 2007, p. 42). Being considerate to the patient’s beliefs, values, and to be open minded even if the nurse does not share the views of the patient goes a long way to gain respect as well as consent from the patient. Communication skills of the nurse is also vital in attaining the patient......

...Journal Article Review #2 Felicia Sauls Jones Chamberlain College of Nursing NUR 305 Health Assessment Wendy Swope, Instructor Fall B 2010 Introduction ‘Sexuality and the Chronically Ill Older Adult’ is an article published in Sexuality and Disability, March, 2000 issue, written by Verna C. Pangman and Marilyn Seguire. In this article, the authors provide an awareness of how sexuality, as it relates with the chronically ill older adult, is not adequately addressed by the healthcare professional. This article promotes awareness, dispels myths and provides an overview of recommended approaches to addressing the sexual needs of this population. Summary of Article Sexuality, though described as one of the most natural and basic aspects of life that affects an individual’s identity as a human being (Pangan & Seguire,2007), has developed very devaluing reactions from society. Addressing sexuality for this population is often neglected. It is unfortunate because sexuality is a very natural instinct that doesn’t go away just because you grow old or develop a chronic illness. Sexuality and growing old have been coupled together in a myth that presents the perception that one cancels out the other and this is so far from the truth. This perception leads to the misconception of the importance of sexuality to the elderly while making it difficult for the elderly to hold onto the value of sexuality as a part of their normal lives. The article continues on to......

...article, I have learnt a better understanding of ethnography and the devotion and effort required to do so successfully. By maintaining many relationships with people, almost religiously attending rallies and rides and “managing serious politics” - all over the course of around 3 years - she was able to gain enough information to write this report. In terms of what knowledge I have gained in regards to the process of critical review, I think that this article is hard to critically review, as the the author has been unbiased and has already addressed which aspects of her article were weak and reviewed them in a section labelled “limitations”. However, despite this, I have learnt that to critically review is to determine the authors aims, the methodology they used, and then to analyse whether the methods were appropriate, whether they had any limitations and whether the aims that the author originally set themselves were actually achieved.

...The topic I have chosen to pursue in regards to my paper is the repercussions of pornography in the family and how this is one of the largest challenges that face the family. This issue can cause massive strain on relationships between husband and wife as well as issues with young ones being raised in a home filled with this free drug. The first article that I have chosen to review is The Problem of Pornography: Why it’s wrong and how to help by Heath Lambert. Heath is the assistant professor of Biblical Counseling at Boyce College in Louisville Kentucky. His article starts by shining light on the depth of the depravity pornography has across all walks of life. He specifically states that pornography is a bigger issue or battle than homosexuality and adultery together. He then spends a great deal of time breaking down what is wrong with pornography from a mental, physical, relational, and spiritual aspect. He does spend time pointing the reader to scripture since his main focus is the issue in the church as well as the world as a whole. He outlines seven specific issues with pornography; lust, promiscuity, a craving for anonymity in sexual relationships, shorten relationships, shallow relationships that are free of entanglements, a desire for youth (which can lead to child porn), and the ease of passive sexual fulfillment. The second part of the article spends some time talking though how to help those struggling with pornography overcome their addiction. The author......

...Journal Review: Why God Became Man Kenneth Paul Watson II Liberty University THEO 313-D03 July 20, 2015 Critique Upon reading Why God Became Man, the author’s purpose becomes clear: to help the reader understand the incarnation of Jesus Christ and His purpose for doing so. The article goes into great detail in defining incarnation, how Jesus, from eternity, took human form, and His multi-fold purpose for becoming man. Strauss takes an orderly and focused approach to the article guiding the reader so that they understand the basis for incarnation and why Jesus became God-man. While lengthy, the article has logical structure and each point felt concise. The author demonstrated thorough knowledge of the Bible and of the person of Christ as he quoted multiple verses from both the Old Testament and New Testament to validate his claims. There were few assumptions as each argument became validated by scripture. Strauss failed to reference opposing viewpoints and arguments directly, but in a few instances generalized a couple of viewpoints that Christians have of the incarnation. For instance, when discussing the “steps in Christ’s exaltation,” instead of generalizing, Strauss should have provided direct opposing sources to help in strengthening the point. In reading the article the general purpose felt more to teach and explain incarnation as opposed to the defense of the concept, which may explain the lack of opposing viewpoints. Strauss used strong, precise,......

... Jackielyn B. De Mesa September 26, 2015 MSSW Dr. Lolita Pablo Journal Review Title of the Book: Human Resource Development Review (Jamie L. Callahan, Editor) Title of the Article: The Role of Self-Reflection, Emotional Management of Feedback and Self- Regulation Processes in Self-Directed Leadership Development Author: Paul L. Nesbit No. of Pages: 18 pages SUMMARY The self- directed leadership development is conceptualized within a framework of emphasizing a self understanding phase and self-change phase that are dependent on the integrated operation of three skills concerning one’s ability to manage emotional reactions to feedback, to carry out effectively the practice of self-reflection, and to enact self regulatory processes for development. It is suggested that the accomplished operation of these skills enable more refined and effective self development efforts allowing leaders to respond to changing work environments in a continuous and productive fashion. However, once learned and incorporated into ones behavioral repertoire, the operation of self development strategies would become self guiding. Given that self-development can be considered as metaskills- skills that allow for the development of other skills. It requires developing self awareness of competency strengths and deficits as a primary focus in leaders self development. This process requires self initiated obtainment of performance feedback and self-reflective......

Adhd Journal Article Review

...Journal Article Review by Madison Goodpasture Abnormal Psychology - 2230 December 9, 2015 Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental condition that affects ~5-10% of children with symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. While both children and adults can have ADHD, it is typically diagnosed in children around the age of seven. Along with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness, ADHD is also thought to lead to other behavioral issues including substances use/abuse and addiction. Since ADHD can continue through adolescence and into adulthood, it is important to learn if this disorder puts individuals at risk substance use. The object of one study conducted by Brooke S.G. Molina and William E. Pelham, Jr. was to clarify the magnitude of risk for early substance use and SUD in clinic-referred children with ADHD compared to children without ADHD. Their results were published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 2003, Vol.112, No.3, in their paper titled, “Childhood Predictors of Adolescent Substance use in a Longitudinal Study of Children with ADHD”. The research was performed by two distinguished psychologists, Dr. Molina and her mentor, Dr. Pelham, both of whom have significant experience in studying ADHD in children. The article reference section was lengthy and covered numerous topics of children behavior specific to ADHA issues. The authors themselves had several other publications included in the References.

...The Affordable Care Act at 5 Years Mary Beth Hamel, M.D., M.P.H., Editor Authored by David Blumenthal, M.D., M.P.P, Melinda Abrams, M.S., and Rachel Nuzum, M.P.H. Published 2015, The New England Journal of Medicine Laurie Bailey Reinhardt University Healthcare Law, Regulations, and Ethics Spring 2016 Journal Review Abstract The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been one of the most controversial pieces of social legislation enacted in recent history. We know the law has had a considerable impact on the availability of health insurance. In addition to its expansion and reform of health insurance coverage, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) contains numerous provisions intended to resolve underlying problems in containing health care costs and improving the quality of care for Americans. These provisions focus on three broad areas: testing new delivery models and spreading successful ones, encouraging the shift toward payment based on the value of care provided, and ensuring protection against illness and the ability to receive care. While it is still far too early to offer any kind of definitive assessment of the law’s reforms since some of the provisions did not take effect until much later after its passage, it is clear that the ACA has changed healthcare in the U.S. and is promoting providers to improve the value obtained for our health care dollars. In 2010, Congress passed and President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and......

Journal Review Cyberbullying

...Journal review Cyberbullying Princess Nelson HCA 250 December 4, 2011 Deb Fuller Journal Review cyberbullying Workplace bullying is a repeated behavior that offends, humiliates sabotages, intimidates, or negatively affects someone’s work when there is an imbalance of power (Privitera, 2009). Cyber bullying is something that children and adults can do at any time of the day while at work or in school. Facebook and Twitter are some of the social networks where people go and judge one another on his or her statuses. I believe working for a male dominate workplace is by far the hardest place to work because they do not expect a female to have any thoughts. One hundred three surveys were returned from randomly selected members of the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union 34% of the people were being bullied face-to-face bullying 10% were being cyberbullied (Privitera, 2009). Forms of bullying Forms of bullying may occur during work hours when one or two people who identify his or her self as the person who is being the target of verbal abuse repeatedly for long periods of time. This is only because the person doing the bullying feels that he or she is bigger and stronger and the other person will or cannot do anything to stop the bullying. The person who is being bullied fears for his or her life. He or she is feeling that there is no one there to help. This bullying may occur......
