“Nothing endures, not a tree, not love, not even death by violence” (Knowles 14). John Knowles famous quote in his work A Separate Peace does more than leave a lasting memory. Set in the New England preparatory school Devon, the novel focuses primarily on the relationship between Gene and Phineas. Knowles uses foreshadowing, especially in the first chapters to answer questions about the relationship Gene and Finny have. Those moments answer questions about their bond that are left hanging at the end of the novel.

Situational Theories propose that leaders choose the best course of action based upon situational variables. Different styles of leadership may be more appropriate for certain types of decision-making.
I visited the Arkansas Art Museum on October 20, 2015. The title of the exhibit was called, “Dos Mujeres,” otherwise known in English as Two Women. This artwork was created by Diego Rivera who was from Mexico. This was a piece of art that portrays cubism and was huge; 77 ¾ x 63 ½ to be exact. The painting had one women on the left, sitting down with a book in her and and the other on the right standing up. This artwork was created in 1914 and the medium was oil on canvas. The name of the gallery was called the Winthrop Rockefeller Gallery. This gallery was located towards the back of the museum. I didn’t know which exhibit to choose because there were a variety of beautiful pieces but I chose this one because it was one of my favorites. The
The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified on July 28, 1868. The amendment granted citizenship to everyone who was born or naturalized in the United States, which included former slaves and African Americans who were freed after the Civil War. Also, the amendment allowed African Americans to be treated equally as all other citizens. However, the Black Codes, Jim Crow Laws, and the result of the Plessy v. Ferguson case took away these rights that were guaranteed to African Americans.
Before we look at the different Social/Psychological Determinants of Health it is important firstly to define what a social determinant of health is. According to the World Health Organization (2017) “The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.” These conditions are as a result of a wide range of factors that are ultimately governed by the way in which money, power and specific resources are shared at different levels including those at global, national and local levels. We have all been a part of and will experience different social determinants of health throughout our lives but it is the standard at which we experience these determinants that will ultimately lead onto them affecting our health or ultimately leaving us unaffected.
Transformational Leadership is the moral ability of a person to make sound judgment and wise decision to influence and inspire others to perform the best outcome even in the critical situation. It is the ability to guide others not just in words, but also by example. Nurses are able to cultivate trust and harmony and establish good relationship with their patients and co-workers through effective and constant communication and intervention. They respond to the basic needs and expectation (Rousel, 2011), they set aside their personal interest for the benefit of their patients and the organization.
All nurses are leaders, but demonstrate their leadership abilities on different levels. There are managers, charge nurses and staff nurse. The managers are leaders of the unit and oversees all the team members on their floor. Their job is to make sure everything operates smoothly. If something is wrong, they take action to correct the problem. They are also followers because they follow higher ups demands. It was interesting to read, “Managers see work as a task to be accomplished” (The New Leadership Challenge: Creating the Future of Nurses-4th edition, 2013). That is not a positive leader comment, which seemed like the manager was looking down on their team. Communicating effectively is a huge skill to nurse leadership. Proper
Bioko Island is the home to several endangered primates, due to the illegal hunting and the selling of bushmeat (Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program). Bioko Island is part of the African country of Equatorial Guinea (Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program). The island is located 20 miles off the coast of Cameroon, and it is primarily intact forest areas with a few small villages, furthermore, the capital of Bioko alone, contains a population of nearly 100,000 residents (Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program). Despite their intact forest areas, several primate species are endangered, and other animal species are becoming vulnerable to becoming endangered. This is due to the illegal hunting of wildlife—bushmeat. The
IntroductionDo Nurse Assistants have a big impact on nursing homes? What about the care of Residents?This article reviews nurse assistants, the job commitment they have, and ultimately how it iseffecting other people, most importantly the residents. The findings are horrifying and one wayto fix how nurse assistants view their job or the commitment they have with it is higher pay,more benefits, and possibility to advance.DevelopmentSometimes, a supervisor’s role takes a toll on the care that is received to residents by nurseassistants. These are full grown adults still needing someone to tell them what to do or how to doit when they fully know the right thing to do.

I tried to justify my interprofessional capability level by using the self-assessment tool of Interprofessional capability, including four domains: Collaborative Working, Reflection, Cultural Awareness & Ethical Practice and Organisational Competence. I have scored myself high on organisational competence. But I achieved lower scores on the other aspects due to lack of practice experiences. Related to my previous nursing practice as an adult student nurse in the hospital I have enhanced my interprofessional capability through practice combined with the theory of interprofessional studies. Now I explore more on collaborative working, reflection and cultural awareness and ethical practice throughout my previous relevant experience of nursing
There is no doubt that in the country we have a serious problem. People die every day because of it; over 30,000 lives a year are terminated because of it. The problem I’m referring to is guns, the misuse of guns, and the slaughter of the innocent with guns. But where is the real problem here? Is it solely just the gun? Or is it the person puling the trigger? My objective is to explain a resolution to gun violence. Because I feel we don’t have a firearm problem, but rather a violent human problem. So ask yourself, are you safer with or with out a gun?
Supervision and management is needed in any business or organisation for better assurance that roles and responsibilities are performed accurately, are taken place within a fixed period of time in order to achieve targets. In the health sector for instance, a care setting such as a care home, when a person talks about residents and workers, what come to mind is supervision and how residents are cared for by both direct and indirect care workers. A care setting such as a hospital is an organised and crucial setting that expends millions of money. Supervision is essential to assure that money invested is used effectively. The goals and visions of any care setting can be realised through proper supervision. The functions of supervisors in a care

Good leadership is important and absolutely critical to the success of any healthcare organization. A leader is defined as an individual that is out front, taking risks, attempting to achieve shared goals, and inspiring others to action (Marquis & Huston, 2015). In the nursing profession, leadership roles are varied throughout any given organization. Nursing leadership in hospitals includes the chief nursing officer, the director of nursing, the charge nurse, as well as, the nurse educator of a given unit. In any nursing organization, the role of the leader is often geared towards improving and maintaining the quality of health care delivered by the entire nursing team (Marquis & Huston, 2015).
