Primary Prevention is the planning and assessment of what the needs are in this location. The risk factor most important which is communicable diseases should be determined. Things to determine are vaccines needed and other protection for workers coming into the area of disaster. Overpopulation, depressed economics and environmental issues such as lack of sanitary water and poor waste management add to long term effects on the public health. Exacerbated by lack of shelter, malnutrition because of food shortages, and poor access to health care cause a dramatic increase in the rates of communicable diseases after a disaster.

mountain man brewing company bringing the brand to light!

CASE QUESTION:

SHOULD MMBC INTRODUCE A LIGHT BEER—YES OR NO?

IF YOU AGREE, EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS A GOOD DECISION FOR MMBC. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, WHAT OTHER OPTIONS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND (TO GENERATE SALES GROWTH AT MMBC OVER THE COMING FIVE YEARS)?WHICH OPTION IS BEST, AND WHY IS THIS THE BEST ONE (EXPLAIN)?

Consider these issues when responding to the questions above:

(a) What sales volume would be required to break even on the new product within two years?

(b) How much “cannibalization” of its current product would result from the introduction of a light beer—and is this amount of cannibalization acceptable, do you think?

(c) Is the proposed budget for the new product launch set at a reasonable level, or can it be reduced and still meet the sales goals?

Things get interesting with pentagons. The regular pentagon cannot tile the plane. (A regular pentagon has equal side lengths and equal angles between sides, like, say, a cross section of okra, or, erm, the Pentagon). But some non- regular pentagons can. The hunt to find and classify the pentagons that can tile the plane has been a century-long mathematical quest, begun by the German mathematician Karl Reinhardt, who in 1918 discovered five types of pentagon that do tile the plane.

Attack on the pentagon results in discovery of new mathematical tile Joy as mathematicians discover a new type of pentagon that can cover the plane leaving no gaps and with no overlaps. It becomes only the 15th type of pentagon known that can do this, and the first discovered in 30 years

Five stars! The pentagon tiles are all identical. The colouring shows how they

tile the plane when arranged in identical groups of three.

Illustration: Casey Mann

In the world of mathematical tiling, news doesn’t come bigger than this.

In the world of bathroom tiling – I bet they’re interested too.

If you can cover a flat surface using only identical copies of the same shape

leaving neither gaps nor overlaps, then that shape is said to….

The billing specialists do the initial computer input and handle the majority of the cases. Normally this occurs without any need for DocSystems intervention or assistance, but occasionally there are difficult issues that arise. For example, a cardiologist may have conducted a certain procedure that fits more than one category in the DocSystems database, and the billing specialist may be unsure how to categorize it accurately.

Read the DocSystems Billing case, including the briefing document and four scenes, and consider the following questions:

1. What problems exist in this organization? How do these problems differ based on the employees’ roles? Why do employees object to Jim’s proposed solution?

2. Make a recommendation to the client about what could be done next based on the data included. Summarize your observations for Jim, offer possible interpretations, and suggest an approach for next steps.

The 1960s was a decade of hope, change, and war that witnessed an important shift in American culture. Citizens from all walks of life sought to expand the meaning of the American promise. Their efforts helped unravel the national consensus and laid bare a far more fragmented society. As a result, men and women from all ethnic groups attempted to reform American society to make it more equitable. The United States also began to take unprecedented steps to exert what it believed to be a positive influence on the world.

Figure 29.1 In Aaron Shikler’s official portrait of John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1970), the president stands with arms folded, apparently deep in thought. The portrait was painted seven years after Kennedy’s death, at the request of his widow, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. It depicts the president with his head down, because Shikler did not wish to paint the dead man’s eyes.

The political divisions that plagued the United States in the 1960s were reflected in the rise of identity politics in the 1970s. As people lost hope of reuniting as a society with common interests and goals, many focused on issues of significance to the subgroups to which they belonged, based on culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and religion.

Political Storms at Home and Abroad, 1968-1980

Figure 30.1 Pop artist Peter Max designed this postage stamp to commemorate Expo ‘74, a world’s fair held in Spokane, Washington. The fair’s theme was the natural environment. Unfortunately, and ironically, gasoline shortages prevented many from attending the exposition.

The wartime alliance of the Soviet Union, the United States, and Great Britain was the result of confronting a common enemy they feared more than they distrusted each other. Once the common foe was vanquished, the underlying hostility surfaced quickly as the Soviet Union moved to expand its borders

Module 4: The Cold War

The wartime alliance of the Soviet Union, the United States, and Great Britain was the result of confronting a common enemy they feared more than they distrusted each other. Once the common foe was vanquished, the underlying hostility surfaced quickly as the Soviet Union moved to expand its borders. In March 1946, Britain’s Winston Churchill would proclaim that an “iron curtain” had fallen across Europe, separating east and west. Although the curtain was merely symbolic, it would effectively divide the world into two camps until early 1989, when the most visible embodiment of that iron curtain—the Berlin Wall—was dismantled, signaling the end of the Cold War.
