Relationship Between Facts and Theories

A fact that I selected as something that happened when I was growing up is puberty. Puberty is a process that takes place to all human beings during teenage years. According to Feldman 2008, puberty is the period during which the sexual organ of teenagers matures. Feldman said that “puberty begins when the pituitary gland in the brain signals other glands in child’s body to begin producing the sex hormones, androgen (male hormones) or estrogens (female hormones), at adult levels”. Normally, girls start the puberty stage approximately at age 11 or 12 and boys start somewhere between age 13 and 14.  (Feldman 2008, p.373-4) On the other hand, we can say that puberty is a stage after childhood and before adulthood. Also, puberty is about mental and physical changes that takes place in a teenagers’ body. 

Dad Shoots Daughter's Laptop After Facebook Post” My Dude Right Here

This is the kind of father we need around this time. This era and generation is so hooked-up and dependent on the video games and gadgets. This dude reminds me of what my parents told me when I was a teenager that "to grow up, do what is the best, expect to take total responsibility of my life and pave my way to prosperity and no hand-outs, but the sky is the limit; or choose to wait and not listen to them as they were the only true love I had and face the world cruelty, wolf-like so called friends and associates to chew me up and spit me out like nothing". 


I have a question? Who said that you are Christian? Yes I’m asking the reader? You call yourself Christian and that's all that really matters? Isn’t that so? I never heard of anyone going around asking for affidavit of support from anyone just proving that he or she is Christian or a member of any other religion for that matter.  For Christians, remember, in the Bible not all who shouts Christ's name and go to church every Sunday are true Christians, but you must believe in the trinity; and have faith as small as a mustard seed can move a mountain( Matthew 17:20). Don’t be like Thomas who did not believe his fellow disciples that Jesus came to them to reassure and reaffirm Christianity that he won the death and crucifixions. Based on Thomas story and him seek to see and touch Jesus’ wounds so that he can prove and believe that is true him, the holy Bible tells us that Jesus came back while the disciples were barricaded in hiding while doors and windows locked fearing of prosecutions, and he asked Thomas to prove his point and added that “blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (John 20:26-29).

My Imaginary Africa: The Motherland For All

African map
The poverty of Tanzanians and Africans in general is not the poverty of Money and or materials; it is the poverty of heart, knowledge, information, psychology of successful life and deficit of leadership in general. Africans cannot be proud if the houses, cars, furnishing and all bunch of materialistic things we have seen in the so called African leaders and their crony investors and pep-crooks who aim one thing and one thing only to keep Africa as it is in order to leave the corrupting gateway that benefit African leaders and the multi-national corporations. We have seen these mansions, luxurious cars and materialistic things from these people; it could be better for Africans and African pride, if and big if they were built, manufactured and promoted by materials from Tanzania and or Africa. But I guarantee you that less than 1% of the materials and man power (physical and mental) used to make these flying fancy materialistic things came from Tanzania and or Africa combined. The rest came from Asia (Arab world and China).

IS THIS AN INSULT TO THE AFRICAN INTELLECTUAL? (The must read truth about Africa and diasporas; the raw-truth and mind facts about bugling Africa, the Motherland.)

My input: On March 20th 2011, in this blog, I wrote and posted this article, “When is Africa and African gonna get up from the dark-life!!!!” months ago. I always say, African problems are brought by Africans themselves, just like the Western prosperity is brought about by the Westerners. The notion that Africans won’t change the way they do business and things will somehow change by nature or by miracle of God it is crazy. If Africans don’t like the environment and situation they are into they would have changed it long time ago. For example, Zimbabwe has changed its economic prosperity gained from Farming, manufacturing and mining into the total chaos. It is because that Zimbabwean did not like the economic prosperity and stability they enjoyed from farming, manufacturing and mining. They are daring to blame others/West for their own brutal acts against humanity and development; just like many other Africans, soon after their independence they chose their loving path that they are into up to today.

Correlation of Faith, Fate and Freewill

Faith is the confident belief and trust in something or someone. As Christians, I have faith and trust in God and Trinity (God Father, Son and Holy Spirit); I also have faith in my family and friends and associates that I trust and believe in. I strongly believe that faith and trust in God is the most sentimental and sacred value that someone bares and are very personable. It is personalized because we human beings tend to build our unique connections to things that we believe (God) based on our culture, environment, social-economic, and life exposure as whole. For Christian believers, we are closer to God and we have contracts with God believing in Life-After-Death, by living up to God’s code of conducts, ethics, standard of merits and guiding principles-Ten Commandments that were given to Moses as it is written in the Holy Bible.

Life and War-Fare Psychology:

 Stare at the picture/image above. Then ask yourself how how many things do you envision on this single image? If it is more than one then why? Can somebody else see the same images that you seen? Confusing, right?

Life is the complex thing that human being endures. Life span brings unpredictability, uncertainty and miracles; things that are beyond human recognition, imagination and explanation. For example, human life in and itself, conception process, life before birth-if there is any, and life after death, as we assume there is one. These are things that human beings are struggling to understand, finding a tangible truth and rational proof with scientific backing.

Is President Obama Dividing the Country?

I have to ask this question. Is Obama dividing the country, as Rush, Hanity' Levin, all GOP primary runners and right wing asserting? What about Santorum as he was pleasing his constituency articulating that government subsidies are only for blacks welfare? Is that unity? Really? In Iowa, the only recipient of welfare or government money, as he asserted in his recent speech, are only black people? By the way I did not see a black person he was referring to as welfare recipients and government free money recipients in his audience or any of his audience in the cocae-state of Iowa. May be I’m color blind, unlike Rick Santorum who speaks of color in articulating his speech. I consider that Read Meat to the majority of his constancy. It is sad but race in the American politics is always the elephant in the room and you can see people working hard trying to wipe out history and ignore the fact that whenever there is race, history always haunts us all. That is why it is always important to do not generalize people because that is what is always known as “stereotyping” and it is bad for whatever circumstances lead up to it

United State Is Shipping Gasoline/Petroleum/Oil Overseas:

It is eye catching to learn that United States is shipping Gasoline, Diesel and Jet Fuel overseas for years now. As we all have been told by leaders and experts that United States is addicted to oil and we consume too much oil of the world. Some went even further and accused our leaders that we go to the war in the Middle East and North Africa because of oils, conspiracy theories, that United States is fighting wars to secure oil. But with this new eye catching reporting, now United States is Selling Oil to other nations. How can it be possible, comparing these wild accusations of United States relationship with OPEC?

iv.                      The role of IS for HR Department function within Vanderheyden Hall Inc; How            IS has affected processes for HR Department functional perspective

v.                        The benefits of IS for the HR Department functional users (Vanderheyden Hall Inc. operational level); and Use of the data at all levels of Vanderheyden Hall    Inc. (knowledge, management, strategic);

viii.                  Impact of the costs, budget cuts and the economy

ix.                      My recommendations

x.                        Conclusion


This research paper is focusing on, “How Information Systems as Form of Information Technology Transformed the Role Of Human Resources At Vanderheyden Hall Inc.”. HR is made up of individuals who are the workforce of the agency, and HR Department is the union between employees and the agency management. However, the HR department functions within Vanderheyden Hall Inc. is accountable for the overall responsibility for implementing strategies and policies relating to the management of all employees, the agency’s daily activities while transcribing and enforcing the agency’s policies that are rooted from the mission statement and vision of Vanderheyden Hall Inc. There, is where we find a massive involvement of the Information Technology (IT) Department that is solemnly accountable to monitor and put in place Information Systems (IS) that collects data, facilitates and makes HR Department jobs easy, effective and efficient.  At Vanderheyden HR Department, collaborating with the IT Department has improved the success of using middle management. Vanderheyden Hall, as the Community and Human Services/Healthcare, Not-For-Profit agency, has been successful transforming itself into effective and efficient departments by using Information Systems (IS), which are well managed by its investment in the Information Technologies (IT) that are monitored by its IT Department working closely with the Human Resources Department insuring the desired out comes. However, like many other businesses in America, Vanderheyden is suffering the loss of man-to-man (face-to-face) contacts and its benefits that can also be beneficial and has proven so in the past. The critique is to balance and be professional.

Legal and Ethical Issues In The Healthcare: Problems And Solutions Of Health Care In The United States Of America


The healthcare system in America is a mess; although the medical needs of the very poor are covered adequately by Medicaid, Medicare and SCHIP vast middle class Americans do not have access to the affordable healthcare. About 46 million uninsured Americans (majority are middle class), have no health insurance at all. (  The current economic recession has worsened the healthcare problem. Millions of people who are suddenly unemployed and underemployed have lost their employer-based insurance or are simply not able to afford the premiums and other out-of-pocket healthcare expenses. I will  take position in this paper that healthcare in America should be considered a basic human right; that we can learn from the healthcare experiences and systems in other countries, such as Switzerland and the new Obama Administration seems to be headed in the right direction, but needs to do more. This paper identifies five problems of current healthcare and offers eleven specific proposals that will do much to revive our ailing healthcare system and make America great.

Legal and Ethical Issues In The Healthcare: Case Study, The Professional Patient Relationship

Module 7 Case Study -Written assignment 

On question a I believe that the medical staff met their obligation of diagnosing Lincoln’s sickness, which was “severe anemia due to hemorrhaging” by Tong 2007, and were able to explain the care plan procedure and its importance, his physician recommended blood transfusion immediately before his lost his consciousness. (Tong, R. 2007p.58)

I understand that faith of Jehovah’s Witnesses does not allow them to agree to blood transfusions for themselves or their children. Because they believe that blood transfusion is the same as eating blood and is prohibited by the Holly Bible. ( However, as physician I would have go ahead and transfuse blood on Lincoln, because the ethical responsibilities of healthcare staff is to serve life’s within their capabilities as such powers are vested to them upon licensure. As a healthcare staff on the scene of such incident, Lincoln was willing for blood transfusion after the merit of such practice were explained to him by his medical staffs. He was competent enough to understand and he showed signs of acceptance of treatment. Therefore transfusion to Lincoln is of his best interest and not otherwise. (Tong, R. 2007p.58)

Legal and Ethical Issues In The Healthcare: Critically Ill and Dying

Case Studies Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, and Palliative Care

After reading chapter 11 in the Tong book, answer the Case Study questions for the four case studies at the end of the chapter, pp. 285-288. Post your answers here. Connect your answers to the readings.

Case Study #1
Q. a
            On Mr. Najiri’s case, physician may have raised a serving no usefulness purpose of medication to Mr. Najiri’s condition that justifies discontinuation of artificial means of life support due to Shiite Muslims belief. However, the physician justified his/her position that Mr. Najiri’s brain dead means no life, and no medical treatment is possible according to main stream American values when he/she said that “in the United States brain death is death” {Tong, 2007 p.286}.  Regardless of Shiite Muslim faith, since Mr. Najiri is in America and physician has pronounce his brain dead and further ruling out that since Mr. Najiri’s brain is dead “the hospital will no longer continue to support his cardiac functions artificially”. {Tong, 2007 p.186}. Because professionally physicians are trusted by American community to evaluate and treat patients and that only a physician can pronounce death, on Mr. Najiri’s case the family members would have to abide by physician’s decisions or transfer him to another hospital outside of America for further treatment that can fulfill their faith and belief of death.

Nursing Home Administration: Forecasting, Planning and Organizing

Case Study #2,

Case study #2 raised a very interesting and ambiguous question for many of us to answer with certainty that the directions of rapid occurring change in the healthcare industry is predictable or can be beneficial to owners, staffs and patients. Considering what the U.S. Congress’s Office of technology has warned that the rate of development is too fast for proper monitoring of the effects and threats that the foundations of the most secure American businesses might be in danger. In this case, Nursing Home facilities are the backbone of the American healthcare businesses and its foundation is facing uncertainty as technology is expanding yearly.  For example, according to Allen, J. E. (2008) reveled that in the 1980s nursing home nurses were well thought-out to be working at lower technology intensity compare to hospital nurses. That is somehow still the truth today. Nurses in the nursing home are still struggling to catch up with toys changing hi-technology something that is increasingly challenging the nursing home and healthcare industry in general. (Allen, 2008 p.14)

Museum Studies- Art History -Andrew Warhola (Andy Warhol) Biography

Andrew Warhola is among the most famous people on the earth. During my research I discovered that his fan and general public more frequently identified him as Andy Warhol. I could not believe my eyes when I searched his name in the internet, so many sites popped-up about him, all filled with his fun comments and gratitude on his contribution to the American culture, art-work/fact, civil-rights movements, social-justice, and personal identity as openly gay. According to The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Inc, Andy Warhol was born August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He died on February 22, 1987 at age 58, in New York City, New York.  The record from his foundation indicates that he was admitted at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1945. The institute is now known as Carnegie Mellon University. His Big Electric Chair, Campbell-noodle soup, coca-cola can and articulation of using celebrities as idles in his art-work has made me and minds of many to admit that he is among the leading figure in the visual art movement in American History; and not only in the pop art.

Community Health - My Local Public Health Agency, Oneida County Health Department


My local public health agency is county based, under Oneida County Health Department (OCHD). Daniel W. Gilmore, Ph.D. is the Director of Environmental Health Supervisor-in-Charge of OCHD. The aim of Oneida County Health Department is to promote and protect the health of Oneida County; both county’s citizens and visitors. The OCHD director is responsible for initiating, planning, coordinating and directing the programmatic and budgetary management of all public health programs.  As McKenzie, 2008 page 50 indicates, OCHD falls in the approximation of 2,86 LHDs (Local Health Departments) in US; and that OCHD like many other LHDs it provide health services to the people and many of these services are mandated by state laws, which also set standards for health and safety. {McKenzie, 2008 p.50}

Legal and Ethical Issues in Health Services: The Nancy Cruzan v. Director, Missouri Department of Health Case Study

Survey of USA Legal System- Analysis Of A Legal Decision Module 01 Written Assignment Week Three

Nancy Cruzan, resident of Missouri state was involved in a severe car accident on January 11, 1983. While lying in the hospital she was at vegetate state due to severe brain damage caused by accident.  She lived as a being without recognition, thinking, or feeling. She could not swallow or eat; rather she had a feeding tube inserted in her stomach for food and water. Also she was incontinent and had to wear diapers. According to Barton (1991), Nancy did not respond to stimuli or recognize her family, and diagnostic tests, such as electroencephalograms (EEGs) detected no brain waves due to her persistent vegetative state since January of 1983. {Barton, 1991 #3} 

Human Services Management: The Nature of Management

I would like to express my views to people who argue that managerial functions are the same; and no matter what the field, they all function the same. (B2) First, “Management in business and human services organization activity means the act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals” (B1).  These people believe that a person who is a good manager in the business field will also be a good manager in the human services field. In the human services field, management is highly challenging because the factors that differentiate nonprofit organization from profit making companies are the same that makes management difficult. (B2)
