MAT 101 SLP3 1. Given: PV = $1000, i = .02, t = 20 FV = PV (1 + it) = 1000 ( 1 + (.02)(20)) = 1000 ( 1 + .40) = 1000 (1.40) = $1400.00 2. Given: PV = $1000, i = .05, t = 20; PV = $1000, I = .10, t = 10 FV = PV (1 + it) = 1000 (1 + (.05)(20)) = 1000 (1 + 1.00) = 1000 (2.00) = $2000.00, Option A FV = PV (1 + it) = 1000 (1 + (.10)(10)) = 1000 (1 + 1.00) = 1000 (2.00) = $2000.00, Option B No advantage noted in calculation given 10%/10 years renders same results as 5%/20 years. The investment would be based on individual budget discretion, however short-term future value for self would be Option B if choice required. 3. Given compound formula, FV = PV (1 + ��)�� , i = .02, t = 20, PV = $1000 FV = 1000 (1 + .02)20 = 1000 (1.02)20 = $ (NOTE: Use your scientific calculator to solve power of 20.) FV greater at compound interest versus simple interest. 4. Given: PV = $1000, i = .02, t = 365 FV = 1000 (1 + .02)365 = 1000 (1.02)365 = $ (NOTE: Use your scientific calculator to solve power of 365.) 5. Given: PV = $1000, i = .02, t = 365x2; PV = $2000, i = .02, t = 365x2 or use successive approximation FV = 1000 (1 + .02)365��2 = 1000 (1.02)365��2 = $ FV = 2000 (1 + .02)365��2 = 2000 (1.02)365��2 = $ (NOTE: Use your scientific calculator to solve power of 365x2.

...NAME: PROFESSOR: INSTITUTION: DATE: NURSES AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS’ INVOLVEMENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPEMENTATION OF HEALTHCARE POLICY IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA: CASE SCENARIO THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT BACKGROUND The argument that every American citizen should have a guaranteed healthcare cover takes two dimensions (Grover, 2007). Is it that all citizens should have access to the same level of healthcare? Or should they have a right to some minimum healthcare cover? The U.S government has selected the second option in relation to the policies it creates directed to healthcare. There are quite a number of policies that have been put in place to realize this goal since there is no single healthcare policy that can cater for all of this demands. The government has made a move to provide access to medical services. In the past, particular groups of people have been selected based on their economic status or their distinctive social circumstances. The policies include Medicaid (for poor children), Medicare (for the elderly), Veterans’ Administration (for veterans), Indian Health Services (for Native Americans) and renal failure security (for transplants and kidney dialysis). The purpose of this study The research’s main focus is to investigate the how government and nurses are involved in the development and implementation of healthcare related policies. The District of Columbia will be the highlight of this paper. Accordingly, the paper will put more......

...Case Scenario: Big Time Toymaker Ana Corral Law421 November 25, 2013 Michael John Case Scenario: Big Time Toymaker Big Time Toymaker (BTT) develops, manufactures, and distributes board games and other toys in North America, Chou is the inventor of a new strategy game he calls Strat. BTT had an interest in distributing Strat and entered into an agreement with Chou, offering him $25,000 in exchange for exclusive negotiation rights for a 90-day period. This agreement stipulated that no distribution contract existed unless it was in writing. On day 87 of the agreement, the parties held a negotiation meeting and came to an oral agreement on the terms of the distribution agreement. Chou offered to draft the written distribution agreement and send to BTT. Before Chou could draft the contract, BTT’s manager sent Chou an e-mail with the subject line “Strat Deal” that outlined the key terms of the distribution agreement, including price, time frames, and responsibilities of both parties and their acceptance of the agreement. Chou, believing that this e-mail was the final written agreement, let one-month pass before BTT sent a fax requesting he fax over the draft distribution agreement contract. Chou immediately faxed the draft contract to BTT; however several months passed without a response from BTT. After a change in management at BTT, Chou was advised that BTT was not interested in distributing his game. This paper will review the case scenario and highlight why Chou......

Sophia has missed many days of school and often comes to school dirty and wearing clothes from the day before. Sophia’s mother does not think she has a problem and blames the system for once again taking her daughter. 1. What can a human service professional do to help this family? 2. How might the family’s previous involvement with the child protection system affect their willingness to engage in services the second time around? Scenario 2 John has been homeless for most of his adult life. He is often seen on the medians of busy intersections asking for food and money or wandering through the park talking to himself. John used to seek housing in a homeless shelter but often chooses to sleep in the local park. During the winter, the local homeless coalition attempts to talk to John about staying in the shelter but he refuses. Staying out in the cold has led John to being hospitalized on several occasions, but he maintains that he is better off without anyone’s help. 1. If you were a case manager for the homeless coalition what would you do to try and help John seek appropriate housing during the winter months? 2. How does John’s outlook......

Case Scenario

...Case Scenario Five doctors have decided to consolidate their businesses to cut costs and provide better service to their patients. In the new arrangement, each of the existing five offices will remain intact—one office is located in the city center and one each is located in the east, west, north, and south of the city. All the doctors want to be able to see their patients and access patient information at any of the offices. The time of operation of all offices will be from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., based on the schedule of the doctors. Since 1986, the offices located in the north and the south have been using an IBM PC/XT and a dot matrix printer with custom software to manage the patient information. These computer systems need to be upgraded, and the data needs to be typed manually into the new computer system. The office located in the city center is more modern; however, the software and hardware it uses may need to be upgraded to store the new information and meet the needs of additional network connectivity. This office will be the central office, and it will have the maximum activity. This office has a Fedora Core Linux Operating System version 8 on a Dell server and uses TCP/IP to communicate with the existing workstations that have XP sp2. This office has the Medical Manager software operating on the server. This office also has two workstations in the reception area, one workstation in the nurse’s office and one in the supervisor’s office that...

...University of Phoenix Material Angela Lippy Case Scenarios Read the following scenarios. Answer, in a 50- to 100-word response, each of the following questions: Scenario 1 Sophia has been removed from her family and placed into foster care for the second time in the last 2 years due to her mother’s ongoing substance abuse. Sophia has missed many days of school and often comes to school dirty and wearing clothes from the day before. Sophia’s mother does not think she has a problem and blames the system for once again taking her daughter. 1. What can a human service professional do to help this family? First of all I believe a crisis intervention is where we would need to start. This unfortunately disrupts Sophia’s life but it is the best thing for her. Both Sophia and her mother need immediate counseling and therapy. Resolution focused brief therapy will help determine if Sophia can return with her mother or if foster care is the best outcome. I would recommend that counseling and therapy continue for an unspecified amount of time for either outcome. 2. How might the family’s previous involvement with the child protection system affect their willingness to engage in services the second time around? Scenario 2 John has been homeless for most of his adult life. He is often seen on the medians of busy intersections asking for food and money or wandering through the park talking to himself.

Recruitment and Retention

...to let go of those of a weaker caliber. Before an organization can thrive in recruitment and retention, first it must have a sound business approach, a clear vision, and a set of core values in which the organization itself believes in. I plan to research what exactly recruitment and retention is and how it can be used effectively. By gathering information from the textbook Managing Human Resources by Susan Jackson, Randall Schuler, and Steve Werner, an article titled “Gilt Groupe’s CEO on Building a Team of Players” by Kevin Ryan in the magazine Harvard Business Review, and along with an array of other research I’ve written a research paper focusing on what was researched and my personal opinions on the subject at hand. To understand recruitment and retention we must divide them into two separate entities. As quoted by Jackson, Schuler, & Werner, “Recruitment involves searching for and obtaining qualified applicants to consider when filling job openings” (Jackson, Schuler, & Werner, 2012 p.188). In other words through recruitment, companies are able to get a pool of qualified candidates, weeding out those less qualified, hiring only those whom they feel have the talent and potential necessary for the direction of the organization. Being able to recruit good people for an organization is vital to a company’s long term success. Jackson, Schuler, & Werner explain, “Retention includes all of an employer’s activities to encourage qualified and......

Case Scenario

... Case Scenario Tosha Hawes BSHS/305 2/17/2015 Instructor: Angela Murray Case Scenarios If I was John’s case manager, I would first set up a psychological assessment to see if he is capable of taking care of himself. I would try to contact family members who may be able to assist with supporting John. I would research different agencies and find either halfway houses or group homes where he can live during the winter months, where he can get therapy, food, and his shelter needs are met. I would try to find him vocational training as well that he may benefit from. John’s outlook on receiving help will affect his ability to get his needs met because if he does not see anything wrong with his environment then he will be reluctant to accept help. I would try to process with John the importance of identifying his problem of living situation. John won’t be able to address his higher order needs if he does not meet his basic needs like food, rest, shelter, water, protection, security, acceptance, love and his self esteem needs as well. (Woodson & McClam 2012) According to the classroom text, people who get little acceptance or respect from others will have difficulty involving themselves in activities that will lead them to self-actualization, meaning with the outlook John has on receiving help will cause him to not gain the skills he need to eventually provide and meet his own needs.

Recruitment and Retention Strategies

...IS351_Recruitment_and_Retention_Strategies Research recruiting and retention strategies at three different companies. What distinguishes one company from another in this area? Are strategies such as signing bonuses, tuition reimbursement, and business casual dress codes standard for new information technology workers? What strategies appeal most to you? Summarize your ideas in a two-page paper, citing at least three references. The first company I looked at was Johnson & Johnson. This company has diverse demographics in its workforce and management and has superior work/life benefits, including: retirement transition; paid time off for volunteering; a work/life resource and referral program; eldercare and adult-management services; childcare discounts, onsite daycare, resources for parenting and health-risk assessments and referrals. Some other benefits include flexible hours, onsite religious accommodations, subsidized membership in wellness/fitness facilities, a caregiver web site, an eldercare program, and college webinars and counseling. The second company was Bank of America. It is a longtime leader in recruitment and retention, especially of women and LGBT employees. The bank has always been a trendsetter in work/life policies, and its current roster of benefits includes retirement transition, paid time off for volunteering/community outreach/professional activities, onsite religious accommodations, reimbursement for both formal and informal childcare...

Case Scenario

...Case Scenario: Big Time Toymaker LaTeisha Allen LAW/421 March 9, 2015 Professor Angela Beetem Case Scenario: Big Time Toymaker At what point, if ever, did the parties have a contract? Both parties, Big Chou and Big Time Toymaker, entered a verbal contract which was created to the distributing a game strategy created by Chou. This contract is considered valid in that both parties were clear and met the contract requirements which a follow-up email was sent to Chou that outlined the details of what was agreed upon verbally. What facts may weigh in favor of or against Chou in terms of the parties objective intent to contract? There are several factors that weigh in favor of Chou in terms of the parties’ objective intent to the contract. First, BTT demonstrated the intent to enter a contract with Chou by offering to pay $25,000 for the exclusive distribution rights. Second, the email sent to Chou by BTT is evidence that the company was trying to solidify their oral agreement in writing. Lastly, is that Chou never secured a contract in writing with BTT. Does the fact that the parties were communicating by e-mail have any impact on your analysis in Questions 1 – 2? Absolutely, the fact that both parties were communicating through email makes this situation complicated. However, it is possible to enter a written agreement via email. Considering that Chou responded via email to BTT after their oral agreement had been reached will most definitely hold significant weight......

Case Scenario

...Unit 5: Case Study-Marcella PS375: Psychology of Addiction Professor Lynda Mitton Christy Miller 10/25/2015 Introduction Substance use impacts many people and destroys lives. There are ways in which risk factors can be identified and addressed before someone slips further and begins to misuse substances. The following paragraphs will identify the risk and protective factors, describe the steps to conduct an evaluation, and identify the DSM-5 criteria that Marcella meets in relation to the given scenario. Risk Factors There are many reasons why people succumb to addiction. There are some developmental and personality risk factors. Some of these risk factors are a difficult temperament, childhood trauma or conflict, and a lack of coping skills to help a person overcome stressful situations (Miller, Forcehimes & Zweben, 2011). Marcella has been raised by her grandparents for most of her life due to her mother’s inability to provide a stable home. She reported that she never knew her father and hasn’t had a real mother for several years. Her step-grandfather, with whom she lives, uses cannabis and alcohol. She reported that she had two close friends and feels that is plenty. Marcella has also been struggling academically (Case Study Scenario, 2015). Marcella’s risk factors include an unstable environment for her first twelve years of life, an inattentive mother, a family history of substance use, few positive acquaintances, academic struggles, and her recent...

...ARTIFACT CASE SCENARIO About five years ago Bob Smith graduated from Briarcliffe with a degree in graphic design. He began working as a website designer for a company in New York City called Web- R-Us, Inc.. This is where he met Mike Williams. The two became friends and starting thinking of ways to get out of their low paying jobs and start their own company. Together, they came up with an idea called Friendlist which would be a website where people can chat and keep track of what is going on in their lives. They have been spending a great deal of time trying to get this website up and running, even during work hours at Web-R- Us. Friendlist is now ready for launch, but they needed to hire an outside consultant to help with some of the technical aspects of starting the website. They hired Mitch Hasselhoff, an independent website consultant, to make sure everything was ready. Mitch re-wrote some code and made many suggestions for Friendlist. On the eve of launch, Bob and Mike quit their jobs at Web-R- Us without notice. Bob is not married, but Mike’s wife is furious that he would quit his job and take a risk on Friendlist. This has put a strain on their already shaky marriage. Mike’s wife is concerned that Friendlist sounds too much like Facebook and that the loss of Mike’s job will leave them unable to pay their debts. The couple has a great deal of debt to pay as Mike has many student loans from college and they have racked......

Recruitment and Retention of Nurses

...Nurses should take a more proactive role in the recruitment and retention of nurses. To understand the profession of nursing, the forces currently influencing the profession and its progression should also be understood. These forces not only affect nursing in general, but all of its allies, including the entire health care delivery system. Globally, finances play a major role in whether nursing will survive or die and in need of a place to be buried. Public and private programs have almost met their demise in their business of increasing demands for nursing care. Because the population is becoming more mature in age, the demand for more and extensive health care delivery services are varied and in great demand. It has become a reality in today's society that more people are becoming less able to pay for health insurance; therefore, the emergency rooms in the general hospital have become routine physician office visits. Health services as mental health, preventive physical and diagnostic examinations in the emergency room are used daily by people who could have afforded them in the not so distance past. Costs of health care has increased to the point that the federal government is presently debating the Medicare/Medicaid benefits, and adjusting fees for physicians and health care services according to diagnostic related groups. With the implementation of the diagnostic related groups, persons hospitalized are classified as the acutely ill, while the chronic ill persons are......

It also provides a comprehensive introduction to scenario planning. Scenarios are possible views of the world that provide context in wich managers can make a decision In a range of possible worlds, decisions are better informed and the strategy is more likely to succeed In scenarios we can understand the drivers of change and have more control of the situation. 1. What are the strengths and weaknesses of scenario planning? Strenghts Allows one to project the future back into the present to help articulate the strategies necessary to achieve the point in future the scenario is conducive to success or help implement strategies to avoid the scenario in cases where it is not going to be successful - Allow a shared view of the future to be developed - Provide the oportunity for an organization to consider how they want to be positioned in that future - Promotes flexibility and responsiveness - Permit to see the mayor drivers of change: globalisation, economics, technology, - It can be used to do Risk assesment, identify early warning indicators and decide how will we respond.

Hr434 Retention and Recruitment Case Study

...Recruitment & Retention Case Study 1. Explain the steps you would take to research exactly how your compensation and benefits package is impacting your recruiting and retention. I think that first and foremost it would be necessary to find out what the competition is paying and what type of benefits they are offering. “Employers must be aware of how their reward system compares with those of others competing for workers in the same geographic areas and in the same industry…” (Henderson) I would conduct a survey to determine how Doiturself Home Improvement Supply Store’s compensation and benefits package compares to similar companies. Once it has been determined that a survey is needed, I would determine the scope of the survey. I would ask the following types of questions: a. In what divisions are we having the highest turnover? b. “Where is worker dissatisfaction centered?” (Henderson) c. “Where does it appear that market rates outweigh internal rate relationships?” (Henderson) d. “Where is market competition for particular skills or exotic talents most fierce?” (Henderson) Once the scope of the survey has been determined, it would be time to prepare for the survey. Part of the preparation would include development, implementation and analysis; classification of job or occupation; pay structure; identification of the labor market; influence of competing organizations, selection of respondents; cooperation of respondents; kinds of data to......
