BACKGROUND PAPER
ON
SUSTENANCE & HEALTH (HEALING AND WELLNESS)
1. You are what you eat and what you eat is a reflection of your values and beliefs. To many Americans, food is not only a source of nourishment, it is also directly related to health and wellness. This research paper is intended to establish a better understanding of American culture and to reinforce cross cultural competence, specifically health and wellness. Healing and wellness are as ancient and culturally diverse as our nation. Americans today have become disconnected from the values and beliefs we once held. This loss of culture has led to many health concerns. .Fortunately, there is a new food culture emerging in America. This new culture includes a range of treatments that is used by Americans to promote health and wellness. In many traditional cultures, the health and wellness of an individual is related to the combination of the mind, body, and spirit.
2. Traditional culture, such as Native Americans, have used diets and plants to promote health by living in unison with the earth. They equated health and wellness to wholeness. Unfortunately, this way of life has been lost with every new generation. “Less than 100 years ago, diabetes was almost unheard of among Native Americans. Today diabetes runs rampant through many tribes as they integrate into the mainstream culture and adopt the typical American lifestyle.”1 Our values and beliefs have become so different which has caused us to become disconnected from the earth.
3. This disconnection is what many consider to be the source of the health and wellness issues we face today. We eat more as a social, political, or moral statement instead of a means to

User Domain • The User Domain defines what data a person can and cannot have access to within an organizations information system. This domain enforces the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which defines what a user is allowed to do within an organization’s owned IT asset. It is the weakest link in an IT Infrastructure. Users must understand what motivates someone to compromise an organizations system. 2. Workstation domain • The Workstation Domain is where most users connect to the IT Infrastructure. Desktop......

...BACKGROUND PAPER ON DOMAINS OF CULTURE Have you ever been on a casual stroll in the woods and suddenly you feel as if you’re being watched or followed? Well I’m here to tell you it may be a Yeti stalking you! That’s right Bigfoot, whether you are a believer or not this elusive creature first appeared in literature 4000 years ago in the Epic of Gilgamesh that was written on 12 clay tablets and found in the ruins of Ninevah. (Parkash, 2006) But today I am going to discuss how the history and myth of Bigfoot has its place in American culture along with key individuals and certain events that force some people to believe that this so called Wildman is not just a myth. Leif Erickson was the first person to have an encounter with the monster in 986 AD long before Christopher Columbus arrived. Leif describes it as “horribly ugly, hairy, swarthy and with big black eyes.” (Parkash, 2006) It is argued that he just saw Native Americans but the Norse were extremely hairy themselves so why would they mention the Natives as hairy. Native Americans throughout time have had their own believes and stories on the subject. Explorers in the new world recorded the Indians attitudes and beliefs for their Big Brother (Parkash, 2006) which I believe started many ideas and fears for our own culture. According the New World Encyclopedia (2009) even our own President Theodore Roosevelt has a published encounter told to him by a mountain hunter in 1893. If the President of the United States......

...Background paper On Domains of Culture Learning and Knowledge Since the dawn of time human beings have been learning how to survive throughout the world and passing this knowledge gained over centuries down to their children for generations and now into the near future. America is widely known for its prestige college universities and its higher standards for learning and knowledge. As Americans how would the world be if we did not have Learning and Knowledge in our American culture? Today, we are going to discuss Learning and Knowledge and how it has vastly affected our American culture as a whole. Learning and knowledge in American culture has always been perceived as your stepping stone to a better life. First, we will examine Learning and its effect on the American culture. In a famous quote from Leonard Da Vinci “Learning never exhausts the mind”.1 This can be simply put as our minds as human beings will continue to learn and grow as much as we deem fit. Typically, we attend school all the way up to the age of eighteen and we have a choice to make on whether or not to attend college or set off into the American work force. Regardless, of what choice we make learning is going to occur in both aspects of attending college or starting a new job/career in the American workforce. Attending college will give you a better knowledge of how our society works and how to some-what navigate through everyday life. Entering into the workforce you will gain more of a hands-on,......

...1. Describe five factors that may lead you to create multiple domains for this organization. a. Decentralized administration – If the company doesn’t plan to centralize domains into one model, this factor would be a good choice due to the fact that the company has multiple branches in multiple locations. Each domain acts as a kind of security boundary which will only allow administrators within that domain to work only in that domain; for example, an administrator in England would not have privileges to work within a domain that is located in California. b. Geographic limitations – Due to the fact that the company has multiple locations scattered globally, links or data transfer may be slow if the entire network is under one domain. This alone doesn’t give enough reason for multiple domains, the main reason is so that an administrator will have control over his/her region and not have to contact another administrator halfway across the world. c. Unique DNS namespace considerations – If multiple organizations want to use similar registered namespaces, multiple domains are needed because each registered namespace has to be on a separate domain. d. Special password policies – password policies are setup on the domain lever so to separate the different policies multiple domains have to be setup. e. Enhanced security concerns – separating the schema master role into a different domain than what your users on can increase the security by nit having everything......

...There are many comparisons between Grand Canyon University’s (GCU) Mission and Domains, the College of Nursing’s (CON) Mission and Program Competencies and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's (AACN) Essentials for Master's Education for Advanced Practice Nursing, similar components are discussed below. Mission GCU mission is to prepare student learners to become global citizens recognizing differences in cultures, living values and having the ability to give care nonjudgmentally, to be critical thinkers, effective communicators, and responsible leaders by providing an academically challenging, value-based curricular framework of Christian culture (GCU, 2014).

University of Oslo, Norway This book presents an entirely new approach to professional learning based on perspectives of the knowledge society and, in particular, an interpretation of Knorr Cetina’s work on scientific ‘epistemic cultures’. Starting with a conceptual chapter and followed by a suite of empirical studies from accountancy, education, nursing and software engineering, the book elaborates how: a) knowledge production and circulation take distinct forms in those fields; b) how the knowledge objects of practice in those fields engross and engage professionals and, in the process, people and knowledge are transformed by this engagement. By foregrounding an explicit concern for the role of knowledge in professional learning, the book goes much farther than the current fashion for describing ‘practice-based learning’. It will therefore be of considerable interest to the research, policy, practitioner and student communities involved with professional education/learning or interested in innovation and knowledge development in the professions.

...daily, children and adolescents eat an average of only 3.6 servings of fruits and vegetables per day, and fried potatoes account for a large proportion of those servings. A number of other dietary variables, including soft drinks, snacking, portion sizes, and infant feeding have also been linked to childhood obesity. Studies suggest that the increased consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks, snack foods (which are often high in fat or/and sugar), and large-sized portions of foods have contributed to the increase in energy intakes. Reduced physical activity may be the most important factor in explaining the increase of obesity over the past two decades. Physical activity among U.S. youth is in decline, with nearly half of young people aged 12 to 21 reporting that they do not engage in vigorous physical activity regularly and one fourth reporting no vigorous physical activity. Whereas leisure time physical activity has increased in men and remained constant in women over the past four decades in the United States, activity associated with work and home life has declined over the same period. Sedentary behavior and “inactivity,” such as watching television and playing video/computer games, also are contributory factors. Gortmaker et al. (1996) reported an adjusted-odds ratio (OR) for obesity of 8.3 for adolescents who watched TV more than 5 hours per day compared with those who watched 0 to 2 hours. Compelling evidence comes from intervention studies, which show that......

...1. In today’s culture the power of knowledge and learning has always been stressed. Sometimes this can make or break a person or even a company. A baby starts learning from birth, knowing the mothers voice and how to suck a bottle. As the child progress in life learning the child should realize a benefit from the knowledge that has been acquired. Soon the child will have a comprehension of what he or she has learned and then how to apply the concepts. He or She will eventually learn how to analysis and trouble shoot situations or problems, which leads to him or her creating and designing, and finally making a conclusion about something1. Those concepts are learned and people learn in a lot of different ways such as Experiential learning and learning from a Community. 2. Experiential learning is a something that is significant in our society today. Knowledge such as learning vocabulary or multiplication tables and the latter refers to applied knowledge such as learning about engines in order to repair a car1. Experiential learning has been known to be associated with personal traits or character trait. In simple terms it is what we learn that make us who we are. This has been very evident in the American culture today. For example the chairman of Microsoft Corporation which is one of the world’s leader in technology of computers and software2. Thru out his life he has gained his knowledge from experiential learning in one form or another. It starts in day care and soon works......

...PERSONAL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PLAN PART I: PERSONAL VALUES My top 5 values are: 1. Family is by far my most important value. Without family I wouldn’t be where I’m at today. Rather it’s my grandparents, parents or wife, when nobody else is there for me they are. Family however isn’t just about blood relatives with me but my closest friends in the world too. The same respect and love I have for my actual family I have for my closest friends too, so I consider them extended family. 2. Respect is my second value. Without having respect for someone or something then you won’t ever have progress in whatever you wish to accomplish. The cool thing about respect is, it’s earned and not given. When there is mutual respect among individuals then it can be the start of something special. 3. Loyalty is my third value. I think this is a value which a lot of the world has loss due to everyone is always trying to get over on each other. Instead of trying to get over on each other we should remain loyal and help each other out. There are enough royalties and solutions to any problem for everyone to be happy. 4. Progression is my fourth value. I have had a lot of success in my career as well as hard times. In the end I always find a way to move on and progress. The key to progression for me is not getting complacent when things are great and not getting too down when things are bad. Rather good or bad find a way to progress...
