Diabetes in Children

The scientific name for diabetes is diabetes mellitus. This refers to a several disorders that describe a person’s inability to create or use insulin effectively. As a result, people who are sick with diabetes often have high blood sugar, and this could result in physiological damage if left uncontrolled. Individuals with Type I and Type II diabetes both experience a range of symptoms included frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger (Fahien and MacDonald, 2002). When symptoms are left ignored, more harmful symptoms could occur. These include diabetic ketoacidosis, which results in death. These individuals could also experience comas before death.

Ultimately, diabetes occurs because the pancreas is typically responsible for producing insulin. However, diabetic patients are either unable to produce insulin or insulin machinery in the cells are damaged, which means that the insulin produced is not usable by the body (Fahien and MacDonald, 2002). Diabetes could also occur when cells are unable to properly respond to the insulin that is made, either due to mutations in the cells or insulin itself.

Strategies of Writing Proposal to Non-Profit and For-Profit Organizations

Background Information

For-profit organizations only determine their level of success regarding profit and their capability to pay back loans or pay dividends. Meanwhile, non-profit organizations only serve to benefit a particular community, irrespective of whether they will gain from the service. Therefore, non-profit institutions are governed by different tax and revenue specifications. This memo focuses on the differences between the strategies of writing proposals to non-profit and for-profit organizations.

Research Methods

To establish the similarities and differences between plans of writing proposals to the non-profit and for-profit organization, the study used secondary sources of information. These secondary sources included peer-reviewed journals, library books, and lecture notes. This is because these are the most credible and reliable sources of information since they have been reviewed and regarded as good academic materials.

Comparison of the Strategies

Technical Writing in the Workplace

Technical communications is a branch of business communications which involves several disciplines that work in unison to convey complex information for the purpose of accomplishing a specific goal. Technical communicators are people who study and provide information on technical products or processes then direct the information to the target audience via various media forms. The work of technical writers is not only relevant to industries whose final products are complex in nature; they also assist other industries in design, product support, production, and sales (Larson et al. 88).

To succeed in the field of technical communications, technical writers must appeal to the collaborative nature of the profession. Technical writers work with people from other professions like engineers, quality control, logistics, designers, analysts, sales, and customer service. Upon completion of the data gathering stage, technical writers then deliver the information using a plethora of channels. The media options include but are not limited to printed materials, websites, e-books, social media, presentations, meetings, audio, and video. The choice of media depends on the target demographic. As millennials are commonly tech savvy compared to the earlier generations, they are likely to be reached using social media, e-books, and websites. Older generations read more print media compared to millennials making print media a viable choice for them (Larson et al. 88).

How Persons’ Personality and Achievements Are Affected by Their Birth Order?

How A Persons’ Personality and Achievements Are Affected by Their Birth Order?

Introduction

Various researchers believe the order of birth is as critical as the sex of the child and practically as imperative as hereditary qualities. No two children will have a similar set of parenting despite the fact that they may be living in a similar family (Cervone & Pervin, 2015). Parents are diverse with each child, and no two kids ever play a similar part. For instance, in the event of being a caretaker of the child, then the caretaking role is taken, and the other siblings will adopt a different role in the family, maybe as an achiever.

Every Child Has Different Parents

Parents usually remember their first children better. This is because the parents watched them well enough to make sure they were breastfed well, used bottles, which were sterilized, carried them most of the time, amongst others. Such a child is the only one that will ever have her or his parents’ fully to his or herself with all the others having to share.

Is Natural Immunity Better than Vaccine-Acquired Immunity?

Is Natural Immunity Better than Vaccine-Acquired Immunity?

Medically, immunity refers to the balanced and stabilized state of biological processes in organisms to fight invading pathogens, infections, and diseases, while developing a tolerance for the prevention of allergies and autoimmune diseases. There two primary types of immunity which are innate and acquired immunity. An immune system can contain both acquired or adaptive and natural or innate components. Innate immunity refers to the type if defense mechanism developed by the body as a result of genetic makeup and memory from previous infections. No external components are required for the natural immunity to be developed. This immunity can either be specific or non-specific innate immunity. Non-specific natural immunity allows the body to resist all infections that may affect the system generally. On the other hand, the specific natural immunity is the body’s resistance to a particular type of pathogens or disease-causing microorganisms. Due to the organism’s constitution, some do not suffer from some diseases or infections due to this type of resistance.

Compilation:

The Advanced Practice Nurse

In the United States there are over 267,000 advanced practice registered nurses (APRN”S) representing a dynamic, powerful force in our healthcare system. The advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) is a nurse with extended education in post-graduate education in nursing; prepared with advanced clinical and didactic education, skills, knowledge, and scope of practice in nursing. APRN’s play a vital, pivotal role in the future of healthcare as direct care; nurse practitioner’s (NP’s), clinical nurse specialists (CNS’s), certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA’s), or certified nurse midwives (CNM’s); and have a master’s, post-masters, or doctoral degree in their nursing specialty. Other APRN roles are; nurse educators (considered as direct care), and nurse informaticists, and nurse administrators (considered as indirect care). At South University, I am enrolled in the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) RN to MSN program. Here in is a compilation for this course (Role of the Advanced Practice Nurse); a contrast and comparison of the roles of the NP, nurse informaticist, nurse educator, and nurse administrator related to primary care, clinical practice, administration, education, and research; an examination of my specialty NP role with regulatory and legal requirements for the state of Florida and Michigan, professional organizations, required competencies and certification, and a predicated organizational setting of where I will work as a NP; and my determined leadership style, attributes with attainment and evaluation of missing attributes, a health policy issue identified from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation with literature review of current policy, needed change and process, and how I would lead the change that would effect healthcare quality (“American Nurses Association, n.d.), (“National Council of State Board of Nursing”, n.d.).

Cyber bullying has been on the increase over the previous years. As the technology and the use of the internet increases, the threat of cyberbullying also increases.

According to the theory, personality develops through a series of stages of childhood in which the child develops pleasure-seeking energies in erogenous areas.
