I heard that one of my high school friend witnessed cheating at exams several times but decided not to report her friends to teachers. She studied in one of best mechanical engineering degree, however, the cheating scandal cast doubt on the credibility of her department. In professional, integrity brings companies more sustainable working environments. My senior in the university worked in a project management corporation that often wins the bid of government project. She complained that she worked to midnight, and even on Saturday and Sunday in peak season.
1.1 Stress and Stressors The term stress was derived from physics by Hans Selye an endocrinologist who has been regarded as the father of stress research. He proposed that ‘stress is a non-specific strain on the body caused by irregularities in normal body functions’. Stress is anything that disturbs the “homeostasis” of the body (Schneiderman, 2005). It can also be defined as the inability of an animal to cope up with its surrounding environment (Dobson, 2000). It is characterised by physiological changes that occur in response to novel or threatening stimuli.
Falls are the leading cause of death for the construction industry in the U.S. On average between 150-200 construction workers die each year from falls. More than 100,000 workers are injured annually from fall accidents at construction work sites. This number is unacceptable and shows the importance of fall protection, prevention, and proper training is to saving lives and reducing injuries. On average between 150-200 construction workers perish each year as a result of fall accidents. More than 100,000 workers annually are injured because of fall accidents.
200 million women worldwide are estimated to have osteoporosis where 1 in 3 women over age 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures. Almost 75% of hip, spine and distal forearm fractures occur among 65 years old or over. Prevalence of osteoporosis stated by IOF is about 25% of hip fracture occur in men and the range of mortality is about 25% in the first 12 months after hip fracture.
About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with much more around the world (St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital) this shows that cancer is one major diagnosed disease found in children under the age of 15. Cancer patients will have long-lasting chronic conditions during treatment. Plus 0.35% of children get cancer and is always being overlooked. Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the U.S.One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide.Two-thirds of
A questionnaire consisted of socio-demographic/other variables and the Zarit Burden Interview was administered on 135 consecutive caregivers. Almost half (36.3%) of the caregivers had high level of burden. Relationship to care receiver and intention to continue to give care significantly differentiated caregivers who had high burden from those that had low burden. Eighty six point six percent of caregivers who were above 60 years reported feeling of impaired health sometimes to nearly always while 16.7% of those 20-40 years reported feeling of impairment of health sometimes to nearly always. It is worthy of note that 80% of those
who found that, about one third of people being quarantined show signs of depression or PTSD. (Lu et al., 2006) These mental health problems can last for many years, even after the disease has already been cured. As mentioned before, being stigmatized also contributes to being mentally unstable. In the Ebola case, not only individuals were targeted, but whole communities. Not only the Ebola patients, but also the people working for a health care organization, who witness a lot of horror daily, are prone to becoming depressed or developing PTSD
Since there are only approximately 35,000 individuals with serious mental illness remaining in state mental hospitals, there are now 10 times more individuals with serious mental illness in jails and state prisons than there are in state mental hospitals (How Many Individuals with Serious Mental Illness are in Jails and Prisons?). The nation’s jails and prisons are used as dumping grounds for people with mental illnesses (How Many Individuals with Serious Mental Illness are in Jails and Prisons?). Many people who are sent to prison instead of being sent to psychiatric hospitals are more likely to die while in prison
Do the negative parts outweigh the positive ones? If you say yes to both my questions, listen to what I’d have to say: RLA is actually for the better! And Before you walk out and boo me out of this stage or start a rally to end RLA, hear out what I think. Before RLA, maybe most of us had our free times to ourselves, spending it how we like to spend it. And when we entered Senior High, we were pressured to complete 200 hours of extra-curricular activities and sacrifice our precious free time, and maybe also money in order to finish it in one semester.
