America Has A Dream A news poll states that only fifty percent of people believe the American Dream is still possible, forty-three percent said that it had been true at one point, and the last four percent believed that the dream never existed (Rodriguez). Because the results of this poll are so low, it shows how much the dream has decreased and how it will continue to do so. Another poll states that ninety percent of children from the 1940’s surpassed their parents with their incomes, while only forty percent of children have exceeded their parents from the 1980s (Graham). This survey is another example of how the dream has declined since in recent years. Some traditional aspects of the American Dream are to own a home, have a good education,

ACCORDING TO THE COUNTY REPORT, THERE IS AN AVERAGE OF 4-5 CASES REPORTED MONTHLY AND ABOUT 45-60 CASES YEARLY FROM 2005-2014.

It is a six-month long course that is in Coronado California, at Navy Special Warfare Center; it’s broken down to 3 phases, which are physical conditioning, diving, and land warfare. One of the most famous parts of BUDS training is hell week; it is on the 3rd week of training, and it is a five an a half day week were candidates get no more than four an a half hours of sleep all week. Many studies have been done on sleep deprivation, and the first study was done on three adults in 1896 experiencing 90 hours of continues wakefulness. The three categories of measurement that scientist use to study sleep depravations are cognitive, motor performances, and mood; effects on mood are the most prevent in studies.

Registered Nurses and the Neonatal Specialty On August 7, 1963, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, was born 5 ½ weeks premature [37 weeks]. He weighed 4 pounds 10 ½ ounces, but succumbed 39 hours after birth to “hyaline membrane disease, now known as respiratory distress syndrome [RDS]” (James 1). Today, this baby would have lived. However, in 1963 “about 25,000 children a year died because medical science lacked the skills and the specialized equipment needed to save them” (James 1). “By 2002, fewer than 1,000 babies a year die[d] of respiratory distress” (Philip 807) and “doctors can now save preemies as young as 23 and 24 weeks with the use of the protein surfactant, ventilators, and advanced technology known as continuous positive air pressure” (James 3).
Today, North Carolina 's eastern counties continue to lack the modern transportation infrastructure needed to improve safety, maintain quality of life and support economic progress required in the 21st century. There are 32 counties east of Interstate I-95. If we do not consider Interstate I-40, 28 of these coastal counties, which represent a total population of nearly 1.3 million according to 2010 US Census data, have no interstate access whatsoever even though North Carolina currently maintains over 1300 miles of interstate routes through the rest of the state. This despite its residents that paid taxes directly and indirectly into a system for more than 5 decades. The time has now come for the state to invest in the propose interstates
Celiac disease generally hardly has symptoms, which is why only about 5% of the people are diagnosed (Allen, 2015). If left undiagnosed, this disease will eventually lead to anemia, osteoporosis, bowel cancer, and higher chance of lymphoma. About three million people have celiac disease, which seems to be a large amount of people. However, that is only about one percent of the population (Thompson, 2014). About ninety seven percent of the three million people still remain undiagnosed.
I have always had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep throughout the night. For at least the last 10 years, I was averaging about three to four hours of sleep during the work week and between five to six hours on my days off. I was a shift worker and constantly rotated shifts throughout those years. I tried everything to sleep from over the counter to doctor prescribed medication. It was hopeless and I was exhausted.
