Healing Systems Chart

Your second paper will be on Oedipus the King by Sophocles. In this play, Sophocles examines the theme of fate versus free will. He does this through multiple motifs such as light versus darkness or sight versus blindness. You may find other motifs or symbols throughout the play.
For your paper, you will examine this play’s theme (fate versus free will). Be sure to construct a thesis statement that you will be able to prove through thoughtful scrutiny of the play, supported by evidence from the text.
You may use any translation of the play, but be sure to cite it properly, as you should cite everything.
You may use additional sources but they MUST be cited properly. If I cannot check your sources, you will lose points.
This paper should be approximately 3 pages in length (around 750 words).
Remember to check your word count. Papers with fewer than 700 words will lose points as a result. Don’t forget to include a Works Cited page and use MLA style and formatting.
There is a rubric for this paper. It is different from the rubric used for the first paper. Please check your paper against the rubric to be sure you have done everything correctly in order to receive the best grade.
This paper needs to be submitted online AND printed out and handed in.

The online submission and the paper submission have to be done together. DO NOT submit the paper online and tell me that you will print out the paper and get it to me past a deadline I have established. If you want the extra credit, BOTH have to be done by the deadline. Otherwise, no dice.

Energy resources associated to Sedimentary process

Your assignment is to write a short position paper (1 to 2 pages double spaced, or roughly 250-500 words) answering ONE of the following two questions:(1)            How much appropriation do you think is justifiable in creating new works of art which draw on previously existing source material? As case studies, consider Nina Paley’s use of Annette Hanshaw’s music in Sita Sings the Blues and Shepard Fairey’s adaptation of an Associated Press news photograph for his 2008 Barack Obama “Hope” campaign poster. In each case, do you feel the artist was right or wrong in the way they used the material? Were the corporate entities involved right or wrong to claim their copyrights gave them the power to suppress these works?                                                 -OR-(2)            When an artist freely adapts material that is strongly associated with a culture other than his or her own, does that artist have a special responsibility to avoid offending some members of that culture? Would the same standards apply to an artist from within the culture? As a case study, consider Nina Paley’s contemporary retelling of the Ramayana epic in Sita Sings the Blues. Some Hindus condemned the film while other Hindus applauded it. When, if ever, should an artist compromise his or her vision in deference to interest groups claiming offense?Whichever question you choose, you may argue pro or con or somewhere in between, but whatever side you are on, you should avoid emotional rants and baseless charges. Summarize each side’s position, and use specific evidence and sound reasoning to support your case. Your writing will be assessed according to the amount of time and thought you put into the work, the persuasiveness of your reasoning, and the clarity of your writing. You may refer to outside sources if properly cited, but do not copy from websites or other authors; use your own words. As always, grammar, spelling, and style count; be sure to proofread your paper for any mistakes.sita_sings_the_copyright_blues.docxPosted: 5 years agoDue: 25/10/2014Budget: $5

Casy study

Your supervisor, the president of a major nonprofit global health organization (you can use any of the ones mentioned in the PowerPoint), told you she wants to partner with an organization in the United States (do some research to identify one) to address a problematic health policy related to children’s health.

Your supervisor asks you to prepare a summary report showing: 
(1) Table of possible partner organizations, 
(2) description of each organization’s mission/vision/values/priorities, and 
(3) possible areas of collaboration related to children’s health.

Based on this summary report, select one of the organizations that seems most suitable, and write a formal letter to the select organization explaining to them why they should partner with your organization to tackle this issue.
The letter should include a description of the population and the health issue, how it relates to the other organization’s mission statement, the policy you want to change or enact, and the benefits of creating this partnership.
In order to earn full credit, this letter has to be persuasive.

Your endocrine system regulates so many important activities. It is scary to think that there are natural and man-made substances that could possibly disrupt it. In certain doses, chemicals known as endocrine disruptors can interfere with the normal functioning of the endocrine system. Have you ever seen a plastic product indicating that it is “BPA-free”? BPA (bisphenol A) is a chemical used in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. It can enter the body by seeping into food from the internal epoxy resin coatings of canned foods or from products such as plastic polycarbonate tableware, water bottles and baby bottles. Some research has shown that exposure to BPA can have possible effects on the brain, mimic the effects of reproductive hormones and can alter the behavior in infants and children. Conduct some additional research on the different types of endocrine disruptors that are recognized, and then, in your main post, answer the following topics: 1.    List two examples of man-made and nature made endocrine disruptors.2.    For your two examples, describe the effects of either a man-made or natural endocrine disruptor at a high and low dose.3.    Before conducting your research, were you aware of what endocrine disruptors were? If so, explain your knowledge of these chemicals.4.    What steps can you take to help ensure you do not come in contact with endocrine disruptors?5.    What other food, drugs, dyes, or environmental factors can you avoid (unrelated to the endocrine system) because you believe they alter the body’s normal chemistry or functioning? Explain your reasoning.Posted: 5 years agoBudget: $15

Epidemiology

Your facility has the following payer mix:

40% commercial insurances25% Medicare insurance15% Medicaid insurance15% liability insurance5% all others including self-pay 
Write a 3-4 page report that addresses the following requirements:
Assume that for the time in question you have 2000 cases in the proportions above. (What are the proportions of the total cases for each payer?) The average Medicare rate for each case is $6200- use this as the baseline. Commercial insurances average 110% of Medicare, Medicaid averages 65% of Medicare, Liability insurers average 200% of Medicare and the others average 100% of Medicare rates. (What are the individual reimbursement rates for all 5 payers?)

What are the expected rates of reimbursement for this time frame for each payer? What is your expected A/R?
What rate should you charge for these services (assuming one charge rate for all payers)? (This gives you your total A/R.) Calculate the total charges for all cases based on this rate.
What is the difference between the two A/R rates above? Can you collect it from the patient? What happens to the difference?
Which of these costs are fixed? Which are variable? Direct or indirect?

materials/supplies (gowns, drapes, bedsheets)
Wages (nurses, technicians)
Utility, building, usage exp (lights, heat, technology)
Medications
Licensing of facility
Per diem staff
Insurances (malpractice, business etc.)

Calculate the contribution margin for one case (in $) with the following costs for this period, per case: a. materials/supplies: $2270 b. Wages: $2000 c. Utility, building, usage exp: $1125 d. Insurances (malpractice, business etc.): $175
Using the above information, determine which is fixed and which cost is variable. Then calculate the breakeven volume of cases in units for this period.
Suppose you want to make $150,000 profit between this period and next period to fund an expansion to the NICU, how many cases would you have to see? At what payer mix would this be optimal?
