Describe a time when you encountered a hazard in the workplace that could have caused or did cause an injury.





The initial response should be at least 150 words and contain a reference list for the sources used to support your response




Describe a time when you encountered a hazard in the workplace that could have caused or did cause an injury. This could be a single incident or repetitive motion issue.


Why did the hazard exist? Was the business negligent in providing proper protection or training for their employees, or was the employee not following workplace rules, protocols, training, etc.?


Discuss the occupational organizations (governmental and/or non-governmental) that might be involved when investigating the workplace injury.


What laws, regulations, policies and/or programs in place to prevent this type of injury?






 Your initial response should be at least 150 words and contain a reference list for the sources used to support your response 






Environmental justice ensures that all communities are treated fairly and are meaningfully involved in environmental-based decisions, such as where to build a new sanitary landfill, hazardous waste repository, industrial plant, or any other such site that could create an environmental hazard for those who live in the area.


Describe a time when environmental injustice occurred. This can include any current or past events where the community was not fairly and meaningfully involved in the decision-making process.


Who is or was negatively affected? What negative health effects could or did the community experience? What other social factors compound the negative health outcomes of the community?

 I used to landscape for a small company many years ago. It was an interesting job because the types of work were always changing. Many times I would find myself on a tall A-frame ladders with a pull saw that would extend even higher to thin trees. I used to be afraid of heights but I think that past job changed all of that. I would be about 20 feet in the air, on unleveled ground, extending my center of gravity out at least 10 feet, with a sharp object. Luckily, I have never fallen off while doing this, but my buddy who worked with me did many times. Fortunately, he was good at falling and did not come out with an injury. The hazard existed because we did not have the right equipment for the job. If we had a cherry picker type vehicle that we could harness into it would have been much safer. The business was indeed negligent and cared more about money than their employee’s well-being. There were negligent by taking on jobs they did not have the proper equipment for. Matter fact, you would never see the boss show us what to do due to his unwillingness to put himself in that situation. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA for short falls under the United States Department of Labor. Their job is to put forth rules, enforce, and inspect businesses to ensure safe practice. If they witnessed the job we were doing with the equipment we had I believe the owner would be fined or at least warned. OSHA has certain guidelines and regulations when it comes to enforcing worker safety. The National Ag Safety Database provides many recommendations for using ladders. Provide solid footing on soft ground to prevent the ladder from sinking (Johnson, N.D). This recommendation definitely could have helped us, providing a solid base for the ladder to bear weight on.

There was a situation at my healthcare facility where we had a psych patient who has caused physical bodily harm in the past. This patient was extremely agitated quick to anger. One day the patient was trying to be physical with the nursing and therapy staff. The patient should have been left alone to calm down, instead the staff was unsuccessfully interacting with the patient. Luckily, no injuries were caused. 


The hazard existed because staff was not prepared or trained to work with psych patients, nor was there any procedure in place in case a staff member or another patient gets attacked. I believe this potential situation would have been handled by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) since they deal with violence in the workplace. Staff can press charges but that is such a gray area when dealing with psych patients because we can only speculate if their intent is to cause harm or something entirely different. Staff can possibly press charges against their workplace for not providing a safe workplace, according to OSHA.

Psychology Paper (Masters Level)

Evidence of your understanding of the concepts you discuss and the quality and effectiveness of your writing will be reflected in your grade. Revise as much as possible until your paper flows smoothly. Your arguments should be clear and well explained, so that a non-psychologist can easily follow.

Marketing Channel Analysis

Analyze in detail how Bruhm Four Burner Cooker is sold through different channels. Although all products may not sell through all channels, ensure that you consider in-store, direct mail, email, social media, word of mouth, and online marketing channels for the product. 






Using the  Marketing Channels Analysis Template provided below for this assignment, create a short presentation that demonstrates the use of these channels for this product by the company. Your first slide should describe the company’s marketing strategy. You should have one slide for each marketing channel discussed. A minimum of three channels should be discussed.

Evaluate the impact of patient care technologies on desired outcomes.



Rapid changes in information technology go hand-in-hand with progress in quality health care delivery, nursing practice, and interdisciplinary team collaboration. The following are only a few examples of how the health care field uses technology to provide care to patients across multiple settings:


  • Patient monitoring devices.
  • Robotics.
  • Electronic medical records.
  • Data management resources.
  • Ready access to current science.


Technology is essential to the advancement of the nursing profession, maintaining quality care outcomes, patient safety, and research. 


This assessment will give you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of how technology can enhance quality and safety standards in nursing. You will prepare an annotated bibliography on technology in nursing. A well-prepared annotated bibliography is a comprehensive commentary on the content of scholarly publications and other sources of evidence about a selected nursing-related technology. A bibliography of this type provides a vehicle for workplace discussion to address gaps in nursing practice and to improve patient care outcomes. As nurses become more accountable in their practice, they are being called upon to expand their role of caregiver and advocate to include fostering research and scholarship to advance nursing practice. An annotated bibliography stimulates innovative thinking to find solutions and approaches to effectively and efficiently address these issues.


Demonstration of Proficiency


By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:


  • Competency 3: Evaluate the impact of patient care technologies on desired outcomes.
    • Analyze current evidence on the impact of a selected patient care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the interdisciplinary team.  
    • Integrate current evidence about the impact of a selected patient care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the interdisciplinary team into a recommendation.
  • Competency 4: Recommend the use of a technology to enhance quality and safety standards for patients.
    •  Describe organizational factors influencing the selection of a technology in the health care setting.
    • Justify the implementation and use of a selected technology in a health care setting.
  • Competency 5: Apply professional, scholarly communication to facilitate use of health information and patient care technologies.
    • Create a clear, well-organized, and professional annotated bibliography that is generally free from errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.   
    • Follow APA style and formatting guidelines for all bibliographic entries.




To successfully complete this assessment, perform the following preparatory activities:


  • Select a single direct or indirect patient care technology that is relevant to your current practice or that is of interest to you. Direct patient care technologies require an interaction, or direct contact, between the nurse and patient. Nurses use direct patient care technologies every day when delivering care to patients. Electronic thermometers or pulse oximeters are examples of direct patient care technologies. Indirect patient care technologies, on the other hand, are those employed on behalf of the patient. They do not require interaction, or direct contact, between the nurse and patient. A handheld device for patient documentation is an example of an indirect patient care technology. Examples of topics to consider for your annotated bibliography include:
    • Delivery robots.
    • Electronic medication administration with barcoding.
    • Electronic clinical documentation with clinical decision support.
    • Patient sensor devices/wireless communication solutions.
    • Real-time location systems.
    • Telehealth.
    • Workflow management systems.
  • Conduct a library search using the various electronic databases available through the Capella University Library.
    • Consult the BSN Program Library Research Guide for help in identifying scholarly and/or authoritative sources.
    • Access the NHS Learner Success Lab, linked in the courseroom navigation menu, for additional resources. 
  • Scan the search results related to your chosen technology.
  • Select four peer-reviewed publications focused on your selected topic that are the most interesting to you.




  • Publications may be research studies or review articles from a professional source. Newspapers, magazines, and blogs are not considered professional sources. 
  • Your selections need to be current—within the last five years.


Annotated Bibliography


Prepare a 4–6 page annotated bibliography in which you identify and describe peer-reviewed publications that promote the use of your selected technology to enhance quality and safety standards in nursing. Be sure that your annotated bibliography includes all of the following elements:


  • Introduction to the Selected Technology Topic
    • What is your rationale for selecting this particular technology topic? Why are you interested in this?
    • What research process did you employ?
      • What databases did you use?
      • What search terms did you use?
      • Note: In this section of your bibliography, you may use first person since you are asked to describe your rationale for selecting the topic and the research strategies you employed. Use third person in the rest of the bibliography, however.
  • Annotation Elements
    • For each resource, include the full reference followed by the annotation.
    • Explain the focus of the research or review article you chose.
    • Provide a summary overview of the publication.
      • According to this source, what is the impact of this technology on patient safety and quality of care?
      • According to this source, what is the relevance of this technology to nursing practice and the work of the interdisciplinary health care team?
      • Why did you select this publication to write about out of the many possible options? In other words, make the case as to why this resource is important for health care practitioners to read.
  • Conclusion/Recommendation
    • How would you tie together the key learnings from each of the four publications you examined?
    • What organizational factors influence the selection of a technology in a health care setting? Consider such factors as organizational policies, resources, culture/social norms, commitment, training programs, and/or employee empowerment.
    • How would you justify the implementation and use of the technology in a health care setting? Consider the impact of the technology on the health care organization, patient care/satisfaction, and interdisciplinary team productivity, satisfaction, and retention.


Example Assessment: You may use the following to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like:



Additional Requirements


  • Written communication: Ensure written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • Length: 4–6-typed, double-spaced pages.
  • Number of resources: Cite a minimum of 4 peer-reviewed resources.

Identify and Describe Broken Windows Theory and how it can be used to reduce crime.

 All answers are to be a minimum of 500 words each, not including the questions, quotes, and references. 


– Minimum of 8 references need to be used for the entire assignment.  I attached 2 references for each essay question that will need to be used for that question.  so at least 2 or more will need to be used to get to 8.


–  The in-text citations and references are to follow APA Style 6th edition formatting. 








1. Identify and Describe Broken Windows Theory and how it can be used to reduce crime. Describe the strengths and weaknesses of the theory. Of the weaknesses you’ve identified above, explain what you consider to be the main criticism of the Broken Windows theory and why.




2. Explain why police patrol methods have remained reactive in nature for decades. Numerous studies have shown patrol has little effect on crime or the fear of crime. If so, why do departments refuse to change?




3. List and describe the limitations of modern patrol allocation models. Select one limitation which you feel is especially concerning and why. What would you recommend as a possible solution?

Analyze not only the chosen characters’ personality but also what role they played in advancing the overall theme of the novel.

Choosing your literary essay topic on Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee is the first step to writing your literary analysis paper.

After reading the novel, you should be able to decide in which direction you’d like to take your paper.

Topics/ approaches (Focus on only one of the following, though some may overlap):


  1. Analyze one of the minor characters, such as Petrus. 

    Example:  Analyze not only the chosen characters’ personality but also what role  they played in advancing the overall theme of the novel.


  2. The protagonist’s conflict, the hurdles to be overcome, and how he resolves it.

    Examples: It  could be hope for change, both in South Africa and in David Lurie.  OR:  the disgrace David Lurie has suffered over the affair with a student and  how that matches the disgrace South Africa has suffered through  apartheid.

  3. The function of setting to reinforce theme and characterization. Example:  post-apartheid South Africa is a setting arguably more important than  anything else in the novel. Your outside sources would be a bit of  history concerning apartheid.The use of literary devices to communicate  theme: imagery, metaphor, symbolism, foreshadowing, irony


  4. Symbolism in the novel– Examples: Determine  if David Lurie represents the old, white authorities of South Africa,  while Lucy represents the new white people of South Africa.  OR:   Analyze what dogs symbolize in this story. Another example: What  is symbolized by the opera David Lurie is writing on Byron?


  5. Careful  examination of one or more central scenes and its/their crucial role in  plot development, resolution of conflict, and exposition of the theme.

    Example: Analyze  one or more scenes in which hope that change for the better is possible  through a character’s remorse and subsequent action, for example, the  scene in which David Lurie apologizes to the parents OR the scene in  which Lucy gets raped.

The possible issue to be addressed in introduction or conclusion:

Characteristics  that make the work typical (or atypical) of the period, the setting, or  the author that produced it. For this information, you must go to a  library database (you must read “How to Access Miami Dade Databases” if  you don’t know how) or a valid search site, such as Google Scholar  (there is often a fee for this one).

Do not open  or close with biographical material on the author. Biographical  material is important as it influences the author’s writing only and  should not be a focus of your paper.

Guidelines for Literary Essay

Be  aware that you will be writing about a novel, which in its broadest  sense is any extended fictional narrative almost always in prose, in  which the representation of character is often the focus. Good authors  use the elements of fiction, such as plot, theme, setting etc.  purposefully, with a very clear goal in mind. One of the paths to  literary analysis is to discover what the author’s purpose is with each  of his choices. Avoid the problem that many students have, which is to  hold the erroneous assumption that  simply retelling what happened in  detail is good enough (no, it is not). Plot summary is necessary, but  not the intended goal in a literary essay.


In addition to being written at college level, your essay must meet the following criteria.


  • Include an introduction with a clear thesis statement, body paragraphs, and a conclusion.


  • Use at least three quotes from the book.


  • When  citing your sources, use MLA style for literary essays. It is helpful  to keep your handbook open to the MLA tab as you write.


  • Minimum 850 words (more complex topics might require more)


  • Language: This is a composition class — your writing and grammar count.


  • Use  specific supporting details from the book and at least two from outside  sources.Go to the Miami Dade Databases (not Google) for your sources.

The following are not acceptable sources:


  • Class Lecture Notes
  • Textbooks
  • Study Guides (SparkNotes, Cliff Notes, BookRags etc.)
  • Wikipedia/ Encyclopedias
  • Dictionaries
  • Popular Magazines (PeopleGlamour etc.)
  • Popular information websites such as or
  • Personal Blogs

Why not? Because  for one, they are not original sources. Encyclopedias and textbooks are  useful to provide an overview or introduction to a topic for complete  beginners. These are meant to get you started on a subject. They are not  research documents.Wikipedia:  Many  instructors forbid reference to Wikipedia at all. Some professors do  allow its use, and the use of encyclopedias in general, but don’t do it.  It’s generally reliable for checking routine facts and extremely  specialized topics, but Wikipedia, actually all encyclopedias suffer  from the problem that they are not a primary sources. Wikipedia has the  added problem that although it is working on correcting errors, it still  has weak quality control. It is susceptible to deliberate sabotage,  vandalism, even censorship.  So don’t use it if you’re not familiar  enough with the subject matter to spot biases or errors, and don’t cite  it in any academic paper at all.

Required Procedures:


  • Read Disgrace by  J. M. Coetzee in its entirety before beginning your paper. Take notes  as you read. Mark some interesting passages and save necessary source  information (such as page numbers) for your in-text documentation and  your Works Cited list.
  • Think  about the topic and approach you chose located in the Topics and  Approaches page. Do not simply repeat or summarize the story.      
    • Write your well-constructed thesis, topic sentences, supporting details roughly before beginning.
  • Do  some research. It’s important to know a bit about apartheid and  post-apartheid South Africa before you begin the paper. Take notes and  save necessary source information for your Works Cited list.      
    • Use at least two outside sources from scholarly sites or journals.
    • Look at sample papers to refresh your memory concerning the format in Rules for Writers, 8th edition. 
    • Write a minimum 850-word (or more if necessary) for a good literary essay.
    • Use  formal language and the third person, avoiding personal anecdotes and  eliminating all references to yourself at all (I believe, in my opinion,  etc).
  • Revise,  edit, and proofread, proofread, proofread. It’s easy to make mistakes.  Correct them before you submit your paper.You may also use any of the  writing labs and centers in any MDC campus, where a tutor might help  you. There are some sites that help you catch grammar errors, such as  GrammarRater, but remember, they’re not human and don’t read for  content, so they miss things (often).

Remember: While you assemble your sources, keep your handbook open (or your online source handy). There are too many details to remember everything.


Compare the number of customer purchases and the method of payment.

This assignment will help you learn how to prepare a management report.  This submission needs to be ONE (1) page (one-sided) only.  You will need to identify the most important points in the data and provide recommendations. Note that if the submission is more than one page in length, ONLY the first page will be graded.


Pelican Stores, a division of National Clothing, is a chain of women’s apparel stores operating throughout the country. The chain recently ran a promotion in which discount coupons were sent to customers of other National Clothing stores. Data collected for a sample of 100 in-store credit card transactions at Pelican Stores during one day while the promotion was running are contained in the file named PelicanStores.xlsx. The Proprietary Card method of payment refers to charges made using a National Clothing charge card. Customers who made a purchase using a discount coupon are referred to as promotional customers and customers who made purchase but did not use a discount coupon are referred to as regular customers. Because the promotional coupons were not sent to regular Pelican Stores customers, management considers the sales made to people presenting the promotional coupons as sales it would not otherwise make. Of course, Pelican also hopes that the promotional customers will continue to shop at its stores.


Your firm has been contracted by Pelican Stores to analyze the data and make recommendations for future promotions. The contract is worth $125,000 and will be awarded to the best recommendation which is supported with your statistical analysis. Be thorough in your analysis and interpretation which will be presented in the form of a one-page report. 


Most of the variables contained in the data file are self-explanatory, but two of the variables require some clarification.


Items              The total number of items purchased.


Net Sales       The total amount ($) charged to the credit card.


Pelican’s management would like to use this sample data to learn about its customer base and to evaluate the promotion involving discount coupons. Additionally, Pelican’s management would like to use this sample data to learn about its customer base and to evaluate the promotion involving discount coupons. You can take the approach of advising them to build the current customer base or look at this as a way to learn more about what customers you need to attract to your store. All assumptions around the approach chosen must be stated and defined. 


Deliverable: Provide a one page (not double-sided) report. Your report should include three sections and supporting graphs.  The three sections are as follows:


1.     1. Key Trends and Insights


This section shows your deep understanding of performance, ability to segment the data, understanding what matters, and why the results are the way they are. Include relevant descriptive statistics here that will tie in with your recommendations below.


2.     2. Recommendations


In this section you will make statements such as “Do x based on y insights. Do m based on n insights. Do z based on insights q” (note you will fill in statements for x, y, m, n, z, and q, and those letters are used for generic purposes).


3.     3. Impact to Business


In this section you will make statements such as, for example, “If you do x, our conversion rate will go up by 18%. If you do y, amplification rate will increase by three times. If you don’t do z, your job will be in extreme jeopardy due to business failure.”


I bet you are wondering….Where do I start? I highly recommend creating and evaluating the following graphs (just because these graphs are in the list below doesn’t mean that they will be part of your story.  You need to figure our your own story.  These graphs will help you start this process.):


  1. Evaluate variable independently (bar, histogram, or pie graph), and appropriate descriptive statistics.
  2. Understand comparisons (using contingency tables and stacked and clustered bar graphs):
    1. Compare the number of customer purchases and the method of payment.
    2. Understand net sales by various classifications of customers. For example, you may want to understand if the females are married or single and were regular or promotional customers if you take the approach to build the female customer base as shown in the sample data.  
    3. Age vs net sales: Specifically what is going on with age of customer and how much they spend money?
    4. Type of customer (regular or promotional) versus net sales. Are there any similarities or differences present?
