In the article, An urban metabolism and ecological footprint assessment of Metro Vancouver (2013), Moore, Kissinger, and Rees present extensive data regarding urban metabolism analysis (UMA) of residential consumption and ecological footprint analysis (EFA) of the Metro Vancouver region for the year 2006. The authors first collect Metro Vancouver’s urban metabolism data from local and provincial government, and provincially owned corporations and include: Metro Vancouver reports, Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority reports, Province of British Columbia reports, as well as BC Hydro reports (Moore et al, 2013, p. 54). The authors then collect Metro Vancouver’s ecological footprint estimates, in global average hectares (gha), of the ecosystem area required on a continuous basis by the region’s population to produce the products and carbon emissions in which it produces (p. 54). The third figure accompanying the article (p. 57), which summarizes the urban metabolism and ecological footprint of Metro Vancouver for 2006 (p. 56), indicates that water represents the largest material flow through Metro Vancouver of 424,860,000 m3, but has the smallest ecological footprint of 34,550 gha (p. 57). The results on figure three (p. 57) also display that food (1,753,000 tonnes) contributes the largest component to the ecological footprint of 4,514,400 gha (p. 57). The authors determine that Metro Vancouver’s total ecological footprint in 2006 is equivalent to 10,054,400 gha, which is 36 times the actual size of the region, and that the residents of Metro Vancouver have an average ecological footprint of 4.75 global average hectares per capita (p. 59). Moore, Kissinger, and Rees come to a final conclusion that society as a whole must focus on reducing overall energy, materials consumption, and…...

...A Glass of Cold Water  Everybody calls me young, beautiful, wonderful. Am I? Look at my hair, my lips, my red rosy cheeks and a pair of blinkering eyes. I remember, somebody says that I look like my mother. But that when she was young. Now, I am much lovelier than she is. I'm a mortal Venus. Oops! What time is it? I must get ready for the party! Beep-beep…!A-huh! Here they are! Yes, I'm coming! "Child, are you still there?" "Hmp! That's my mama" "Child, are you still there? Will you please get me a glass of cold water?" "Mama, I'm in a hurry!" "Please child, try to get me a glass of cold water." "Mama, please, try to get it on your own." "Please child, try to get me a glass of cold water!" At the party, I danced and danced the whole night. You see, I can't leave the party at once. I have to danced with everybody who proposed to me. At last, the party is over. I'm very tired. Very, very tired. So, I went home to tell mama what happened. "Mama, I'm home! It's very quiet. "Mama, I'm home!" Nobody answers. Where is she? I look for her in the sala, but she's not there. Where is she? A-huh! In the kitchen! I saw my mama, lying down on the floor, dead. With a glass on her hand. I remember, she tried to get it. Oh, God, just for the glass of cold water! Mama! Mama! Oh, Mama!...

...The demographic transition is the measurements created from the gradual shift in birth and death rates from the primitive to the modern condition in the industrialized societies (Wright, et al, 2011). Our understanding of the demographic transition includes the crude birthrate (CBR) and the crude death rate (CDR). The CBR and CDR are the number of births and deaths, respectively per thousand of the population per year. With data given per thousand of the population, the populations of different countries can be compared regardless of their total size. In using the term “crude” we are implicating that no consideration is given to what proportion of the population is old or young, male or female. CDR is subtracted from CBR which gives the increase or decrease per thousand per year and dividing this result by ten yields the percent increase or decrease of the population (Wright, et al, 2011). The four phases of the demographic transition are such as phase one in which there is the primitive stability resulting from a high CBR with an offset from an equally high CDR. In phase two is a declining CDR resulting from the epidemiologic transition. Fertility and the CBR remain high which activates population growth in this phase II. Phase III has a declining fertility rate however the population growth is still significant. Phase IV is reached when modern stability is achieved by a continuation of a low CDR and CBR. In the epidemiologic transition there has been a high crude death...

Self Respect Nad Dignity for Elderly Resident

...promote and not degrade his self respect despite his present situation (being wet with urine and smell of faeces), frail or his age (SCIE, 2006). Mr Moses despite his present circumstance should feel value before, during and after his care (Nursing Standard, 2007). The concept of dignity has to do with privacy, respect, autonomy, identity and self worth thereby making life worth living for them (SCIE, 2006). However, each patient needs is unique, the level of these concept will varies on individual service user, such as the privacy that other service user need will be different from what Mr Moses require at the time of His care. When dignity is not present during his care, Mr Moses will feel devalued, lacking control, comfort and feel embarrass and ashamed (RCN, 2008). Things that emerged in my observation for Mr Moses to be provided with care in a dignified way involves, delivery Mr Moses personal care in a way that maintain his dignity, having support from team members and an up to date training in delivering care, and supportive ward environment (NHS evidence, 2007). I did raise some issues with my mentor that was missing when attending to Mr Moses which includes: Respect, Privacy, Self-esteem (self-worth, identity and a sense of oneself) and Autonomy (SCIE, 2006). Respect is a summary of courtesy, good communication and taking time (SCIE. 2006). It is the objective, unbiased consideration and regard for the right, values, beliefs and property of all people (Wikipedia,......

Introduction This lab was conducted to examine the two biological processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Photosynthesis is a process that uses carbon dioxide, water and energy to produce glucose and oxygen. Cellular Respiration is the reverse process of photosynthesis. Cellular Respiration uses the glucose and oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, water and energy. These become the main source of food and energy for the plants and animals. The basis of the relationship between plants and animals is that they have a co-dependency upon each other because they are both making something the other needs. Hypothesis or Predicted Outcome I hypothesize......

His traditional belief physical and financial power made her more vulnerable. Social factors such as physical disability (paralysis), his lack of education and binge drinking made her more vulnerable.

It is also the involvement of people in sexual activities which: violate the sexual taboos of the individual, family customs or usual practices. It can include the involvement of people in sexual activities where one party is in a position of trust, power or authority.

Maintaining Dignity

...“How can nurses ensure that older people are treated with respect and dignity whilst being cared for in a hospital or in the community?” Providing dignified care is at the very heart of nursing and is the responsibility of everyone (Royal College of Nursing (RCN) 2008). Nurses play an important part in the care of older people and quality nursing care can make a substantial difference to physical and emotional well-being (Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) 2008). 'Dignity' as defined by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) (2009) is ‘A state, quality or manner worthy of esteem or respect; and (by extension) self-respect’. Adopting dignity in practice should generate an environment that supports and promotes self-respect, allowing it to flourish by the maintenance of autonomy and informed choice, NMC (2008). The 2006 Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) publication ‘Living well in later life’ highlighted the lack of dignity and respect for older people in acute hospitals as a major area of concern citing that 45% of NHS resources are spent on older people and this accounts for the greatest use of acute hospital services This discussion will identify the specific needs of the older person from a bio-psychosocial perspective incorporating complicit ethical issues. The role of the nurse in the provision of quality and comprehensive care delivery will of course be examined, integrating theory and practice and exploring the implications for......
