Report of findings to the Community Health Department
CC: Principal Samantha Perez, Truman Middle School
RE: Absences and Illnesses

I have been notified that there may be an outbreak of illness throughout the middle schools of Independent School District 12 which has caused a spike in student absences. While conducting research on the recent absences, I’ve noticed that in two of the four middle schools, Truman and Jackson, there was an abnormal increase in the absences of band students on May 20th and 21st . I have noticed after reviewing the school calendars and that Truman and Jackson Middle School had a Battle of the Bands event on May 19th. Telephone interviews by the School Nurse were conducted with some of the parents whose children were absent from school on those days, and I discovered that in speaking with one of the parents, it was brought to the nurse’s attention that some of the band members went out to dinner after the battle of the bands.
In an attempt to rule out food poisoning, I took the liberty of looking into the recent health inspection reports for the local restaurants, which I had access to through the health department. I discovered that there was an accounting of several health violations at two restaurants located in close proximity to the schools. According to your School Nurse, food poisoning symptoms can start within a day or two of eating contaminated food. Based on interviews conducted the symptoms, all of which were either the same or very similar, were started within two days of the battle of the bands. After reviewing the available data from the health department and schools, I am inclined to agree with the parent of Student T10, that the absences are most likely related to food poisoning and not a contagious illness such as the flu or other epidemic.
There would be no need to alert students, parents or the…...

...Impacts of a borderless society Unit 6 Assignment Professor Robert P Black, MS I am a serious bargain shopper. I try to save wherever I can. That usually means buying products from a mega chain, whose items are usually from outside of the U.S., verses buying from a local “mom and pop” store. The local stores usually have higher prices than most of the larger chain stores. I have never really understood why. For my family, buying all our food locally can be a challenge sometimes. My husband is Asian and he refuses to let go of some of the Asian food items he loves. For example, he has to have bok choy instead of green cabbage from right here. Rice is another issue for us. It has to be jasmine rice from a South East Asian country. He swears there is a difference. In my opinion, it all tastes the same….bland. List all of the components of two of your meals.

...Unit 4 Project: The Future of Energy in Illinois Raymond Kupczyk Kaplan University SC300-11: Big Ideas in Science: From Methods to Mutation Professor Smith November 13, 2012 The Future of Energy in Illinois Renewable energy technologies are becoming increasingly important in the world today. With the increase of fossil fuel prices, climate fluctuations, and energy security, renewable energy can be the key factor in eliminating the need for the decreasing resources that we use now that can be damaging the earth. Energy comes from a variety of sources and has many forms. The two main forms of energy are potential and kinetic. Energy that is stored within an object is potential energy, and the energy that does the work is kinetic energy. Primary energy sources can be categorized as nonrenewable or renewable. A nonrenewable energy source comes from the ground and has a limited abundance. Examples of nonrenewable energy sources would be oil, natural gas, coal, and uranium. Renewable energy sources examples would include the sun and wind; they can be renewed naturally in a short time frame. Secondary energy sources are converted from primary sources. Examples of secondary sources include electricity and hydrogen ( The state of Illinois plays an important role in the transportation of crude oil and natural gas throughout North America. It has three natural gas market centers, a dozen interstate natural gas pipelines, an oil port, and several petroleum and......

...Running head: THE CONCEPT OF ADAPTATION 1 Sensory Adaptation Experiment Aspects of Psychology American InterContinental University November 20, 2013 THE CONCEPT OF ADAPTATION 2 Process and Results of Each Experiment Experiment 1 with Sandpaper- After rubbing my index finger on the very coarse sandpaper a few times, I would rate the coarseness on a scale of 7 (very coarse). This experiment gave me a tingling feeling in my finger. After a minute or so from resting my index finger, I ran the same index finger on the sandpaper and found that it wasn’t as coarse as the first time. I would rate its coarseness at a 3 which led my finger to not react to the paper as much as the first time. So I feel that my senses adapted to the coarseness of the sandpaper. Experiment 2 with Sugar Water and Fresh Water- I took one cup and put two teaspoons of sugar in with fresh water and stirred it. In the second cup I only put fresh water in it. I then took the cup with sugar water in it and took a sip and swished it around in my mouth. I noticed that I could feel my taste buds were stimulating but after a few seconds they became less stimulated. When I had tasted the fresh water and swished it around, I noticed that I tasted a hint of salt. It surprised me because I wasn’t expecting to taste salt......

Explain. There seems to be a spike in absences at the Truman Middle and Jackson Middle schools’ band class. The spike in Truman Middle school occurrence took place between the dates of May 20th and May, 21st with close to 35% absent. In Jackson Middle school the occurrence took place at the same time with 25% absent. It seems there may possibility of an out-brake of some type of viral infection that has caused so many student’s to be out of school. There seems to be some type of epidemic because it happened in Truman Middle on May 20 & 21st then dwindle down beginning March 22nd, and at the Jackson Middle school on May 20th then this dwindled down on May 22nd. The attendance shows no major impact in all other classes and middle schools. Truman Middle school had an absentee percentage of 33.3% on May 20th and Jackson Middle had a 25% absentee percentage and was due to the band class, all other classes had a normal absentee percentage rate (Community Health Department, 2012). There does not seems to be any attendance dilemma at either The Kennedy Middle or Roosevelt Middle Schools or any other classes at Truman or Jackson Middle Schools other than band on May 20th through May 22nd (Community Health Department, 2012).

Nonrenewable energies are petroleum products, coals, natural gas and uranium ("", 2013). Renewable energies are wind, solar, hydroelectric power, bioenergy, hydrogen and ocean energy ("", 2013). Nonrenewable energy source we used for home and for our vehicle soon it will run out. This kind of every will not going to last forever and it eventually will be gone for the later generation. Nonrenewable energy cause harmful effect to our atmosphere, but there are alternative to use renewable energy source replace the nonrenewable energy to reduce the opposite of what nonrenewable energy caused. The Northwest has several renewable energy options that we are using in this region. One is wind power the west coast; we have plenty of wind patterns coming from the west of the Pacific Ocean ("Wind Map", 2013). The second renewable energy source is solar power on top of the house and producing part of the electricity. Columbia River is producing hydroelectric power for the most part of the Northwest which is the top producer for the Northwest area and Bio energy in process of growing ("Northwest Power and Conservation Council", 2013).

...Developing a Success Plan Creating an Action Plan I have started working on achieving my academic goals by going back to school. I will start my assignments as they are available and complete them before the due date. Most of my free time is after 8 pm, so that is likely when a bulk of the work will be done. I plan to stay focused by working in a quiet, cool area and stay ahead of the due date not waiting unit the last minute. I’m going to study the reading materials at the beginning and middle of the week in small sections. Once I have completed a few classes I plan to add a second concentration for Health Care Management. I would like to complete my degree with a double concentration to broaden my career options. After I graduate I will look into taking my education even further with a Master’s Degree. Having an education and a career is very important to me. I can only hope to set an example for my children so that they realize the importance of it as well and strive to do even better than me. Identifying and Setting up a Support System My husband is a great support system. He helps me to stay accountable and is always there for me if I need an opinion or help. My parents are also a wonderful support system who are willing to do anything to make sure I accomplish my academic goals and succeed.

We can save money and get a better return on investment by when we define our target market. We will save money by sending direct mail to those who fit our criteria instead of send them to everyone in the Zip code. Demographic Characteristics Our target market should include people who share similar demographic characteristics as our current customers. Demographics include items such as age, gender, income level and amount of education (Joseph, n.d.). For example, demographic information may show you that a likely user for your product is a male between ages 25 and 34 who earns between $25,000 and $35,000 per year and has a four-year college degree. According to the research done published by Pew Research Center, there are certain groups of Americans who rely on smartphones for online access at elevated levels. 15% of young adults, aged between 18-29 are heavily dependent on smartphone use for online access (Smith, 2015). Also 30% of households with annual income of less than $30, 000 and low levels of educational attainment are smartphone dependent.

...Class: CJ233: Introduction to Forensic Psychology Unit 2 Project: Differentiate Criminal Behavior Kaplan University July 17, 2011 Talking about crime and the role of a forensic psychologist in order to understand crime, and the various theoretical theories to describe, track, and understand the different criminal behaviors, we can forget some of the pioneers of the nineteenth-century, Charles Goring (1870-1919), Gabriel Tarde (1843-1904) and Cesare Lombroso (1835-1909), and their contribution to the development and studies of the Sociological, Biological, Psychological, and Social-Psychological theories. The Sociological theory studies social behavior and cultural factors, such as gender, race, socioeconomic status, moral values, friends, environmental, situational factors, poor education, and how these factors contribute to criminal behavior. The basis of the Sociological theories is that certain groups within society have fewer opportunities than others to achieve their goals. For example; Kids that are raised by a single parent, with financial limitations have a highly propensity to join gangs, and commit robbery than a kid that have been raised by both parents. Biological Theories are focused primarily in the study of physical and biological conditions that control human behavior. It was in this area where Cesare Lambroso focused his studies. His theory was based on the assumption that criminals have specific physical feature......

The west coast of the US consists of the highest levels of risk by a wide margin, particularly in the south-west (on the pacific tectonic plate fault line). Central Eastern regions bear areas of moderate risk. Northern and South/south-easterly regions bear no significant risk. 2) Locate your home on this map and make a note of the relative risk to you by indicating the color where you live. The USGS also reports on earthquakes around the world. Visit this interactive map to find the latest global earthquake data from the past seven days: Bridgeport Connecticut - very low probability of occurrence here. This region bears no significant risk to such an event over the next 50 years. 3) What patterns do you see in the distribution of earthquakes around the world? The majority of earthquakes occur on the left hand side of the pacific plate (the fault line between the pacific/Eurasian and pacific/Australasian plates) the right hand side of this plate relates to the fault line where the majority of earthquakes in the US occur.

Danger Below Unit 4 Project Sc300

...Running head: Danger Below Danger Below 1 Danger Below: Earthquake Sheleana Hornback August 26, 2012 Kaplan University SC300 Danger Below 2 One of the most frightening and dangerous natural disasters known to man are earthquakes. Why is the threat of an earthquake so frightening? When dealing with other natural disasters like tornados, hurricanes, and flooding man is able to predict and track them: therefore, providing ample warning to people in the affected area. Earthquakes on the other hand are nearly impossible to predict because of how they occur. To understand how an earthquake occurs we must first look at how the earth is made. The earth is composed of four major layers: the inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust. The crust and the top of the mantle make a thin skin covering the surface of the earth. This skin is multiple pieces and is constantly moving, sliding past each other, and bumping into each other. These pieces are called tectonic plates and the edges of these plates are called the plate boundaries. Most earthquakes occur on these faults. The edges of the tectonic plates are rough and they become stuck on the one another while the rest of the plate keeps moving. When the tectonic plate moves far enough the edges unstick and the stored energy is released. The energy radiates outward from the fault in all directions in the form of seismic waves. The seismic waves......
