...Writing academic papers or just your normal day to day school work can be very intimidating at times. As long as I have the determination and the drive to succeed, conquering these obstacles will be a relatively easy task. Unlike traditional college where you go in and sit in a class and have months before you finish, online schooling is much more demanding. It requires that you have the motivation to complete your work on time and learn the material that is presented in front of you. A lot of knowledge can be carried on from one’s high school experience but like many people, polishing up those skills you learned years back is much needed. What I hope to accomplish with my survival guide is to develop much needed strategies that will help me in my studies in college. Conducting research for academic papers or even discussion questions is not just an option but a requirement. There are many ways to conduct research and with all these sources at your fingertips. Because of the many sources the task can seem overwhelming at times. One powerful tool at everyone’s disposal is the internet. This is a very valuable tool because there is a wealth of information available. Be warned because not all the information on the internet is creditable. A good way to get accurate information is to cross reference several sites and exempt information that is not correct. Another way to conduct research is through the University Library. Much like a search engine on the internet, the......

Arctic Survival

...While our team was composed of completely different preference types (as classified by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), we believe that such varying opinions led to our group’s success in the Subarctic Survival Simulation. In fact, our group boasted the highest team percentage change in the activity—43 percent. The team percentage change represents the improvements made in the ranking of survival tools through our team’s discussion from our individual assessments. The change shows how the group’s gain score (24.4) relates to the average individual score (56.4). Additionally, our gain score was the highest in the class, further showing the strengths of our teamwork during the survival simulation. When assessing the overall effectiveness of our discussion, our team score of 32 must also be considered—it was tied with Team 5 for the lowest in the class, while our average individual score of 56.4 was second in the class ranking. When we compare our team’s average individual score to the best individual score on our team (30), we see that there is a significant difference. Clearly there was one team member who was more in-line with the expert rankings of the survival tools than the rest of the team. This difference of 26.4 points was by far the greatest spread in the class. When looking at this spread along with our team’s percentage change, we may also conclude that this person made a positive impact on our discussions by helping to improve the team’s overall score. ......

Survival

...Gone with the Wind is a well written novel that takes place in an important time in America’s history. There are four major characters, Rhett, Scarlett, Melanie and Ashley, who has to survive through a catastrophe. Some southern do survive the Civil War and Reconstruction, however others do not. I agree with Leila Gemme. The major theme of the novel is survival. Mitchell has portrayed this by the adaptation of the characters. Scarlett and Rhett are survivors as they learn to adapt to the aftermath of the Civil War and Reconstruction. Scarlett tried to rebuild Tara by working on the plantation. She hopes the cottons and crops will make her become the once affluent lady that she was. However, the plan was futile. After she married Frank Kennedy and learned about business, she immediately seizes the opportunity to get into the lumber trade business. Since the Old Southern society has fallen, Rhett saw this as a chance to make profit and money. “What most people don’t seem to realize is that there is just as much money out of changing a wilderness into a civilization” (Mitchell, 196). Rhett makes load of money by blockading and speculating. Ashley fails to survive the war. When the war ended, he struggles to adapt to the new environment. “God knows he tries his best but he warn’t cut out for farmin’ and he knows it as well as I do” (Mitchell, 648). Even when Scarlett gave him a mill to manage, we see that he is a failure at it. He does not have the audacity to discipline the......

Survival Analysis

...STAT 572 Survival Analysis HW7 Problem: Data set: WHAS, Covariates: AGE, SEX, MITYPE. Perform survival regression. 1. Data Description. In this case, there is one continuous variable (AGE), and two categorical variables (SEX, MITYPE). We are studying how these three predicators affect patients’ survival time. For SEX, Male=0 and Female=1. For MI Type of patients, there are three values: 1 | Q-Wave | ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) | 2 | Not Q-Wave | non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) | 3 | Indeterminate | | Table 1.1 MI type explanation 2. Variable Analysis Since AGE is a continuous variable, to be convenience, we make it as categorical variable CAGE using 25%, 50% and 75% quantile at FSTAT=1. Using PROC UNIVARIATE to decide the cut point as follows: Variables | 25% Quantile | 50% Quantile | 75% Quantile | AGE | 64 | 72 | 80 | Table 2.1 Quantiles Cut Point for AGE Thus, all the variables are categorical, such that we can use the LIFETEST to test if different levels of covariates have the same effect on the survival curve. We are doing hypothesis testing for each predictor: H0:SSEX=0=SSEX=1 vs. H1:Not H0 H0:SMI=1=SMI=2=S(MI=2) vs. H1:Not H0 H0:SCAGE=0=SCAGE=1=SCAGE=2=S(CAGE=3) vs. H1:Not H0 First, we will test the equality over SEX, and compare the KM curve using LIFETEST and PHREG.

Six Months

...If I were to find out that I only had 6 months left to live? That is something that most people would hope they don’t have to plan for. Me on the other hand, I am the kind of person that always thinks about the worst possible outcome of everything. Usually I will think of stuff like that situation while I am awaiting the results of a doctor’s visit. My father died young from Pancreatic Cancer, and it was the same way. He found out when he only had about a year left to live. My father was really sick really fast, so he didn’t really have a plan and I don’t think many people do. I don’t believe in making a real plan for my death because I am hoping that I can stay here as long as I can. But, in the case that I was to die in six month I would do the following. First, I would reassure that all of my life insurance policies and packages were up to date on who was getting what. After updating all of my insurance paperwork I would start lining out what bills got paid by what money coming from my insurance. I don’t want my family to be stressed over my bills at a time of grieving, so I would want to take care of that as much I can! After all of the paperwork junk is out the way, I would just want to spend time my family and friends as much as possible. I really don’t have a list of crazy stuff that I want to do before I go. I have always had it in plans to get married and have a great family and be happy. But, if I was to die in 6 months my plans would be shot. I am currently in a......

...2 Week Survival List * Food – Can and Boxed goods * Coffee * Dog Food and treats * Potty Pads in case the dog can’t go outside * Lighter to start fire * Radio and batteries along with a CB Radio * Flashlights the kind you crank to generate a charge * Batteries * First Aid Kit for myself and my dog * Ammo for self defense * Candles for light but to also generate heat in smaller rooms * Manuel Can Opener * Gas * Water * Portable grill with propane tanks * Generator for a power source The contents above are things that I thought would be important to surviving two weeks without power and potentially being locked inside due to an emergency situation. I have most of these items in the apartment already. Things I would need to add would be a portable grill and propane tanks along with gas and a generator. The stove in my apartment is electric so I would have a problem cooking without some sort of a power source or portable propane grill. If the dog was unable to go outside I would need to use potty pads which would not be a fun experience but things can be flushed. I would need to get some small candles for lighting purposes but also to create heat. You use them in smaller rooms by taking 4 small candles and placing them in a bread tin and taking two ceramic flower pots and placing them upside down over top of the candles which will in turn make your set up a small ceramic heater....

...Activism is nexessary for survival of democracy freedom after a long struggle and formed a great constitution for making the country a welfare state bringing liberty, equality, fraternity with a view to make its citizens feel free and safe. It has to be ensured that the said values are not dying and the necessity of their healthy growth is being monitored for the survival of a free and vibrant society. Law and practice are different Our constitution clearly mentions that every citizen- regardless of gender, caste, creed- shall be equal before law and no discrimination shall be made on such grounds. But the daunting realities have contradictory stories to unfold. India – with its thousands of sub-castes stands divided on the basis of social divisions at every nook and corner. People, children, women are suppressed. MBA Essay topics: Need of Activism The need of social uprising arises here. These are the activists who raise a voice against the atrocities and let the world know about the same. They educate the people, garner their support and try to get the wrong doings rectified.  This is the fear of activists that corruption and corrupt practices are catching the attention of people at large.  The irregularities committed are being highlighted. Those who are under the watchful eye of activists – which can be media, social networking, NGOs etc. will think twice to go for any corrupt practices. Activism in fact is the activity that awakens the sleeping people about......

Avalanche Survival

...Avalanche Survival Roberto Mendoza-Diaz ITT Technical Institute Mr. Horne Abstract This paper examines the techniques, equipment needed, and experiences of others in how to survive an avalanche. By examining this situation people can get self-awareness when trekking the back country in search of entertainment and adventure.

Dorchester Democrat Sentenced to 6 Months in Assault Case

...Dorchester Democrat Sentenced to 6 months in assault case A 37 year old state representative, Carlos Henriquez, was sentenced to six months in prison after a jury had convicted him of punching a woman in the chest after she had refused to have sex with him. The district judge; Michele Hogan, said, “when a woman tells you she doesn’t want to have sex, that means she does not want to have sex.” Hogan’s sentence for Henriquez was two and a half years, in the house of correction, yet he ordered Henriquez to serve only 6 months of the sentence that Henriquez was given. However; Middlesex prosecutors had asked that Henriquez be ordered to serve 1 year of a 2 and a half year sentence, which would be the maximum for assault and battery. Henriquez’s lawyer, Stephanie Soriano-Mills, asked Hogan for Henriquez’s sentence to be probation and to acquit on some of the charges. Stephanie Soriano-Mills had called the sentence harsh. In other words, this case has to do with assault and battery. The meaning of battery is to touch someone unlawfully. The definition of assault is the attempt to try to commit battery. Assault as a tort and a crime are different. A victim of a tort must know that the person that had committed the tort, meant to commit harm. Trying to commit harm is necessary when trying to establish fear. Assault and battery are usually committed together. You cannot commit battery without committing assault. On the other hand, assault can be committed without......

Critique of Acute Affective Response to a Moderate-Intensity Exercise Stimulus Predicts Physical Activity Participation 6 and 12 Months Later

...gov/pmc/articles/PMC2390920/pdf/nihms42341.pdf The purpose of the study was to see if there is a connection between a person’s emotional response to moderate physical exertion and their likelihood of that person continuing to be an active person later. The study was conducted using mostly white female participants who were considered to be sedentary. They were given a grading scale by which to quantitatively express their personal sensation as well as their level of perceived exertion. The participants were placed on a treadmill and worked until their heart rate was 65% of the target rate for each participant according to age. They were then surveyed 6 and 12 months later. The study found that participant who had a positive response to the original bout of physical activity were more likely to be physically active 6 and 12 months later. The authors acknowledged many limitations of this study such as small sample size and the use of age predicted heart rate expectations. The use of a survey may lead to sketchy results also. The results and the discussion were consistent due to the fact that the authors made no wide spread claims resulting from the data acquired during this study. This study implies to me that if physical activity was more fun and less suffering then people would be more likely to adhere to exercise programs. If I were to continue research based on this study I would interview the participant in hopes of discovering further variables between those who......

Survival

...confronted with an unexpected survival situation man has the potential to overcome many challenges, beat incredible odds, and come out a survivor. But just what is survival anyway? Survival is the art of surviving beyond any event. To survive means to remain alive; to live. Survival is taking any given circumstance, accepting it, and trying to improve it, while sustaining your life until you can get out of the situation. And most importantly, survival is a state of mind. Survival depends a great deal on a person's ability to withstand stress in emergency situations. Your brain is without doubt your best survival tool. It is your most valuable asset in a survival situation. It isn't always the physically strong who are the most effective or better at handling fear in emergency situations. Survival more often depends on the individual's reactions to stress than upon the danger, terrain, or nature of the emergency. To adapt is to live. Mental skills are much more important than physical skills in survival situations. A person's psychological reactions to the stress of survival can often make them unable to utilize their available resources. You most likely won't use your physical skills if you don't have a positive mental attitude. One definitely must be in the proper frame of mind to survive an unplanned survival situation. Attitude or psychological state is most certainly number one. It is undoubtedly the most important ingredient of survival. With the proper attitude......

Survival of the Fittes

...Ryan Cassity Professor Jeffries ENGL 012, Paper 2 March 24, 2015 Survival of the Fittest Life is hard and often times filled with tough challenges and difficult situations. In the past, African Americans were subjected to the tortures of slavery and isolation from mainstream America during the 18th and 19th centuries. Meanwhile, the harsh reality of life faced by African Americans is seen today with an increase in homeless people living on the streets. While some people look down on people they consider undesirable or inferior, one aspect of a person’s character that can never be questioned is their will to survive. Furthermore, survival in life requires a “never quit, never die” mentality that enables a person to keep fighting to realize a dream. “I, Too” and “Crusader Rabbit” suggest that survival requires courage, desire, and faith. In the poem “I, Too,” Langston Hughes portrays a black man bound into slavery who knows deep down in his heart that he “too” is part of America and is entitled to all the rights and freedoms that America itself stands for and represents. While held captive as a servant, the black man displays courage through his refusal to be recognized as an inferior human being. As Hughes notes, “I am the darker brother. They send me to eat in the kitchen When company comes, But I laugh, And eat well, And grow strong” (Hughes 2-7). The black man will not allow ignorance and neglect to destroy his pride. The black man’s mindset and......

Survival Notes

...Lecture 12: Introduction to Survival Analysis In many biomedical studies, the outcome variable is a survival time, or more generally a time to an event. We will describe some of the standard tools for analyzing survival data. Most studies of survival last a few years, and at completion many subjects may still be alive. For those individuals, the actual survival time is not known – all we know is how long they survived from their entry in the study. Similarly, certain individuals may drop out from the study or be lost to follow-up. Each of these cases is said to be censored, and the recorded time for such individuals is their time until the censoring event. Example: HPA staining for breast cancer survival We consider data from a retrospective study of 45 women who had surgery for breast cancer. Tumor cells, surgically removed from each woman, were classified according to the results of staining on a marker taken from the Roman snail, the Helix pomatia agglutinin (HPA). The marker binds to cancer cells associated with metastasis to nearby lymph nodes. Upon microscopic examination, the cancer cells stained with HPA are classified as positive, corresponding to a tumor with the potential for metastasis, or negative. It is of interest to determine the relationship of HPA staining and the survival of women with breast cancer. The survival times in months Ti and staining results (xi = 0 for negative and xi = 1 for positive) for the 45 women are presented in the following table. Also......

...Survival Fishing A few methods for survival fishing There are any number of ways to fish but when you are in a survival situation you wont have the luxury of sitting on the river bank all day with a pole in your hands. These are a few suggestions that might help in the coming times. Traps: There are several trap designs that work. I am sure you will be able to construct one that will work for you. Take some "chicken wire" and form a tube about 16 inches in diameter. You can make it square, if you want, but a tube is easier. Using wire or such, you will need to sew the seam of the tube. Also sew one end shut in such a way that you can open fairly easy. Then cut a "mouth" out of a square of the chicken wire. You will need to form a cone that fits into the other end of the "tube". The smaller end points into the tube. The smaller end should be small enough to allow fish to swim through but not big enough to let them swim back out. This kind of trap needs to have bait put inside to attract the fish. If you can find a small creek that fish usually swim up, place the trap with the mouth facing downstream and block access of the rest of the creek so that all fish will have to swim into the trap. [pic] You can make the trap out of anything. The Indians used to make them out of sticks. The fish can be left in the trap if there are too many for you to eat at one time. This way you could have fresh fish anytime that you needed them. You can leave them in the trap for a week or......
