Mass shootings are horrific and devastating events. This is considered common knowledge by most people, regardless of varying political views and opinions. Because of this many people have attempted to find the cause of them in an attempt to prevent them. However; many come up with different answers. Most agree that the problem lies with the mental state of the person who committed the crime.
Zak Lipman 10c Line 5 Literature Review What Is Delayed Gratification Delayed gratification also known as deferred gratification, is the ability to resist the temptation for an immediate reward and wait for a later reward. Commonly, delayed gratification is associated with resisting a smaller but more immediate reward in order to receive a larger or more lasting reward later (DeLecce, n.d.). A lot of studies have linked the ability of strong delay gratification to a number of other positive outcomes, such as physical health, psychological health, academic success and social skill (Liu, Wang and Liao, 2016). A person 's ability to delay gratification conveys to other similar abilities such as patience, impulse control, self-control and willpower, all of which are involved in self-regulation. Roughly, self-regulation embraces a person 's ability to adapt as necessary to meet demands of the environment (DeLecce, n.d.) On a daily basis people are forced to make decisions that could result in different outcomes, there you are forced to make a choice between instant gratification, getting what you want immediately, or delayed gratification, postponing the immediate reward and receiving an even larger one, be it choosing to delay the gratification of watching television and getting your homework done now then you’ll learn more and get better grades, If you delay the gratification of buying unhealthy, savoury food at the shops, then you’ll eat healthier* when you get home, or
This begins during triage. The triage team is responsible for segregating patients into different categories and placing them where they can receive ultimate care without affecting the health of other patients. Signs are placed in conspicuous areas to alert staff or visitors of a potential contamination risk. Patients with Tuberculosis are put in negative pressure isolation rooms. TB is spread in the air.
Patient delay is the period of delay between the discovery of illness signs and symptoms and a patient first time visiting a health care provider. When symptoms of potential serious illness start developing, seeking treatment is crucial. Delay in seeking treatment increases morbidity and mortality oftenly. There are 4 stages of delay behavior and they are appraisal delay, illness delay, utilization delay and medical delay. Firstly, for appraisal delay it is the time the patient takes to assess a symptom as a sign of illness.
A marine casualty can be defined as an event or sequence of events that involves any vessel other than public vessels provided that occurs upon navigable waters, a States territorial waters or where it involves any of a particular States vessel which is not of a public nature which has occurred as a result of vessel operations or is directly linked to it where the result is: - Man overboard - Accidental grounding - occurrences involving vessels which results in damage: by a vessel to the vessel, its apparel, gear, or cargo - injury or loss of life of a person - collisions - stranding or disabling of a vessel - groundings - foundering’s - heavy weather damage - fires - explosions - failure of gear and equipment - which may affect or impair
Whereas, accident cause major loss concerning human dead or property are often called ‘major accidents’, they are usually associated with major hazards or installations. An example of major accident is leakage of radioactive chemicals which cause gene mutation to humans leading some gene related diseases such as cancer. Radioactive chemicals are strongly influential to fetus when their body structures are forming, it harm the gene causing a permanent damage or malfunction to the body structure of
INTRODUCTION The identification of a sick child or a deteriorating child is very imminent for the immediate treatment .The immediate attention to the sick child will either pave a way for the reversal of the impending danger or delay the emergent crashing so that the medications can work upon and give time for the body to cope up with the illness. The deterioration of children is very difficult to recognise and predict because of the varied presentations of illness which are very unique to children and are age dependant. Children also cannot articulate the various reasons for the sickness and have very meagre compensatory mechanisms. With the advancing technology in the recent years and with the acquits of care being available ,the inpatient deterioration and cardiac arrests of the children in the wards of the hospital are avoidable or can be avoided completely. With careful and early detection of deterioration with the use of early warning scores and appropriate timely intervention given, these deteriorations can be reduced.
Any impacts or significant changes and activities of a sphere would affect the other and finally resulting in mass extinction events shaping the earth into a different appearance. General factors causing mass extinctions can be classified into 2 groups, catastrophic cause and gradual cause, where catastrophic causes are big massive events that can cause mass extinction in 1 single event and gradual causes are long term events which usually results from catastrophic events that
The major objective of this research project was to assist the telephone operator in the decision making process to the problem of identifying the appropriate level of urgency and type of health care required in requests on the initial emergency call center. This problem, which is usually referred to as the prehospital telephone triage process, is enormously important in terms of maximizing the critically injured patient's chances for survival. There are several triage systems worldwide used, (e.g., Australasian Triage Scale (ATS), the Canadian Triage and Acuity Scale (CTAS), the Manchester Triage Scale (MTS), the Emergency Severity Index (ESI) and others). All of these triage procedure yields rapid, reproducible, and clinically relevant stratification of patients into groups, from the most urgent to the least urgent level. Triage decisions are often made with limited objective
