A digital forensic investigation process can involve many steps and procedures. The objective is to obtain unbiased information in a verifiable manner using accepted forensic practices. In this project, you will perform some of the steps necessary for setting up an investigation. These steps include designing interview questions that establish the needs of the case and provide focus for your investigative efforts. You will also determine what resources may be needed to conduct the investigation. Once you have this information, you will be able to develop an investigation plan that properly sequences activities and processes, allowing you to develop time estimates and contingency plans should you encounter challenges in the investigation. This situation involves two computers and a thumb drive. After clear authorization to proceed has been obtained, one of the first investigative decision points is whether to process the items of evidence individually or together. Processing computers individually makes sense when they are not likely tied to the same case. However, if the computers are linked to the same case, there can be advantages in processing them together. There are four steps in this project. In Step 1, you will develop interview protocols and identify documentation needs for a forensic investigation. In Step 2, you will identify tools and software needed for the investigation. In Step 3, you will develop a plan for conducting the investigation, and in Step 4, you will consolidate your efforts in the form of a single document to be submitted to your supervisor (i.e., your instructor). The final assignment in this project is a planning document with a title page, table of contents, and distinct section for each of the three steps in the project. Consult the relevant sections of in every step. In Step 1, get started on the plan by creating an interview form to record questions, key words, and authorization information, and to complete the legal forms needed in this case. However, before you can do that, you need to review your training in criminal investigations. Your tasks in Step 1 are to create interview forms to record questions, key words, and authorization information, and to designate other legal forms that will be needed in this case. It is important for you to describe the importance of each form that you create in the body of your final Project Plan assignment and include in-text reference citations for all of your content. The forms that you complete as part of Step 1 will be included in your Investigation Project Plan, the final assignment for this project. As part of the investigation into two computers and a thumb drive, it’s important to do the necessary preliminary work. In , there are laws governing , , , , and the . It’s important to be familiar with these topics. Review that relate to cybercrime, as well as in preparation for your digital forensic investigation. The next thing to do is to read the police report and perform a quick inventory of devices that are thought to contain of the crime. You have set up a meeting with the lead detectives and the prosecutor handling the case. You have received an official request for assistance that provides you with to conduct the investigation. You realize it will be impossible to produce a prior to your meeting with the detectives and the prosecutor. First, you need to develop a series of questions to establish the key people and activities. These questions should address potential criminal activity, timelines, and people who need to be investigated. It is also important to determine whether different aspects of the case are being pursued by other investigators and to include those investigators on your contact list. In addition, some situations may involve organizations or individuals who need to adhere to various types of . This situation may require you to follow special procedures. In Step 2, you will consider the types of resources needed for the investigation. In Step 1, you developed forms and templates to collect the legal, criminal, and technical information that lays the groundwork for your investigation. In this step, you will consider the types of equipment and human resources needed to conduct the investigation and create a budget table that includes expenses for software licenses, computers, storage devices, number of digital forensics examiners, digital forensics examiners’ labor hours, examiner hourly pay rate, including time spent for each phase of the investigation process in gathering evidence analysis, reporting, presentation preparation and court appearance(s). It is important to total overall costs of all equipment and expenses in your budget table. By making these preparations, you are establishing . Required resources can include people; tools and technologies such as , , or ; and budget and timeline information. Develop a checklist. It will be included in the final Investigation Project Plan. In the next step, you will begin to prepare a plan for managing a digital forensic investigation. In the prior step, you determined what resources would be necessary for your investigation. In this step, you will develop a plan for managing the investigation. The requirements for reflect the step-by-step rigidity of the criminal investigation process itself. Being able to articulate time, task, money, and personnel requirements is essential. is a skill set that is not often linked to digital forensics and criminal investigations. That is unfortunate because effective project management can have a dramatic impact on the success and accuracy of an investigation. Identifying the tasks that need to be performed, their sequence, and their duration are important considerations, especially in the face of “wild cards” such as delays in obtaining correct search warrants and subpoenas. It is also important to have a clear understanding of the goals for the investigation as you will likely be called upon to present conclusions and opinions of your findings. Your project plan should include a properly sequenced narrative timeline and a separately labeled and sequenced Visual Graphic Timeline chart that reflects the time intervals between each phase of the (e.g., 30 hours gathering evidence spread across five business days, 60 hours of analysis over 10 business days, 90 days for reporting and court preparation, etc.) including detailed time estimates, and contingency plans. Your plan will serve many purposes, including the assignment of a project budget. As you create your plan, be sure to include in your meeting agenda communications and reporting: who should be involved, how the activities should be carried out, how often, and under what circumstances (i.e., modality, frequency). Once you have developed your project management plan, move on to the next step, where you will submit your final assignment. For your final assignment, you will combine the results of the previous three steps into a single planning document—an Investigation Project Plan—with a title page, a table of contents, and a distinct section for each of the three steps. The plan should include: The organization and details of your plan is important. Be sure to refer to the to meet the minimum standards needed for this project. All sources of information must be appropriately referenced. Submit your completed Investigation Project Plan to your supervisor (instructor) for evaluation upon completion.
Discuss some of the protected characteristics covered by equal employment opportunity laws and why they are important in today’s employment setting. 1) Your discussion is to be submitted in 12-point Times New Roman font using APA format. 2) You must have a minimum of two sources to support your answer. 3) Students are required to post their primary response (200 word minimum) 4) Students will respond to at least 1 other postings (150 words minimum each) Equal employment opportunity shows the practices the importance for the individual and organizations. Equal employment opportunity has established the baseline for the behavior that is considering the array of values and attitudes where else the other one s individual level commitment to their employer (Hersch, 2015). The person mindset sense of personal worth and being confident in all situations when considering the fair employment practices for the organizations that can confidently they can practice the laws of employment more significant advantage and dedicated candidates that is EEO decreases the chances of facing it. The organization has many positive implications for teams and overall the productivity and creativity of the organization. If the employee has been mistreated, then the individual can file a complaint with the equal employment opportunity, they do investigate and describe the pattern of discrimination evident. There are few steps to follow for the business which evaluate the employment practice that they develop the legal, ethical, fair employment standard. When you are recruiting employees for a position for a job, you need to advertise the application after selecting the candidates from the database start standard selection process likely hiring manager will allow his selection decisions. When a position is ready up, and you need to promote employer for that formal steps need to be taken for the qualified candidate who applies for the job in a specific period (Dodge, 2017). When implementing the processing company must have a clause or utilizing the third party that significantly increase the positive outcomes of the EEO. The evidence for the temporary, loss of bonuses and terminations, providing a copy for the employee to enable the strategy to make the opportunities will have higher compensation. Placing of vacancy is high in area or mode of communication, developing tests and techniques to promote the qualified employee for the selected candidates. EEO addresses the issues exactly about unequal employment practices.
MICROBIOLOGY Case Study It was so exciting! Caitlyn was the only freshman girl selected for Varsity Singers, her high school’s touring show choir. Their summer “retreat” was a six-day mega-rehearsal to learn all of the choreography for their upcoming show season. Monday through Saturday the week before school resumed, the 28 performers danced from 8 A M to 8 P M in their un-air-conditioned gymnasium. Caitlyn didn’t particularly mind the hot, humid rehearsal conditions, but sweating profusely in dance leotards every day was really starting to aggravate the acne on her shoulders and back. After a special preliminary performance for their families on Saturday night, Caitlyn showered and dressed to go home. It was then she discovered a very large, angry “pimple” that rubbed uncomfortably on the back waistband of her jeans. By morning, it was raised and the size of a dime. Caitlyn’s mother washed the affected area, cleansed it with hydrogen peroxide, and applied an antibiotic ointment, telling her they would call the doctor tomorrow if it didn’t improve. Monday morning, the ﬁrst day of school, Caitlyn’s back was sore. “A great way to start high school,” she thought. Caitlyn’s mother took her to the pediatrician’s ofﬁce right after school. The PA examined her back and was alarmed to see a lesion almost two inches in diameter. It was tender to the touch with poorly demarcated margins. The region was raised, warm, and Erythematous (reddened) with several smaller red lines radiating outward. After consulting with the pediatrician, Keﬂex was prescribed for Caitlyn. She was sent home with instructions to monitor the infection. If it was not obviously improved by the next day, she was to return for reevaluation. On Tuesday morning, Caitlyn went immediately to see her pediatrician. The lesion was the size of an egg and quite sore. Caitlyn also presented with a temperature of 38.4°C (101.2°F). Motrin and compresses were advised as comfort measures. The Keﬂex was continued and the lesion cultured for laboratory analysis. Again, she was told to return if she didn’t notice improvement. The preliminary Gram stain of the specimen showed many Gram-positive cocci in clusters. After 24 hours, the TSA with 5% sheep blood plate demonstrated pure growth of small, round, smooth, white, gamma-hemolytic colonies. The same colony morphology was observed on the PEA (or CNA) plate with zero growth on the EMB (or MacConkey) plate. Colonies were also observed on the MSA plate, which was completely pink in color. Colonies from the TSA plate were suspended in sterile saline and introduced into the Vitek II analyzer. It conﬁrmed Staphylococcus epidermidis was the pathogen involved and indicated Keﬂex sensitivity. They had toyed with the idea for years, and now, Jacob, Tony, and Tom had ﬁnally made their dream of a family business a reality. With Jacob’s computer expertise, Tom’s experience from his marketing internship, and Tony’s apprenticeship with a master painter, the three brothers were conﬁdent that “Color Your World Painters, Inc.” would be a successful business venture. After only six months, their Internet and local TV advertising had made them a household name in their community. Tony had to hire additional painters to handle their burgeoning workload. The brothers moved to a larger ofﬁce, purchased improved equipment, and issued all employees uniforms and painter’s caps with their ﬂashy new logo. Business that summer was booming. The hot, sweaty paint crew worked from sun up to sun down every day. Upon returning to headquarters, they hung their caps on the wall, changed out their uniforms for street clothes, and collected nice fat paychecks. Jacob boasted smugly that things couldn’t be better…until one morning Tony didn’t show up for work. Annoyed, Jacob grabbed a uniform and Tony’s hat, got the painters organized, and took his brother’s place on the work crew while Tom tried to track down Tony. Tom’s second phone call reached his ﬁve-year-old niece, who was answering her mother’s cell phone. In a small and tearful voice, she told her uncle that they were at the hospital and daddy was very sick because he had slime leaking out of his head. Conﬁdent that his niece’s imagination had run away with her, Tom reassured the little girl and told her he would be right there. Tom left a voicemail message on Jacob’s cell phone and headed to the hospital. When he met his sister-in-law, Julia, Tom was shocked to ﬁnd his brother was in surgery. Stunned, Tom listened to Julia describe the events of the last few days. Out of embarrassment, Tony never mentioned to his brothers that he periodically suffered from boils around his hairline when working under hot, humid conditions. Two days ago, when Tony noticed the ﬁrst few boils appear, he assumed it was just a recurrence of his seasonal problem. But, after 24 hours, Tony was becoming concerned. This was the worst case he had ever experienced. He had at least a dozen boils on the back of his neck and into his hairline. Despite his discomfort, Tony continued work without complaint, although he secretly blamed his problem on wearing the new company cap that made him sweat more around his hairline. That evening, Tony showed Julia his neck and asked her to him disinfect and bandage the area. His frightened wife pleaded with him to go to the emergency room, but Tony ﬂatly refused. Number one, they didn’t have health insurance and he certainly did want to run up a bill. But number two, Tony was not about to be humiliated by going to the hospital for something so simple. In his mind, boils could hardly be considered life-threatening. Julia gently cleansed the area for her husband, counting 13 boils the size of a dime or larger. Tony winced in pain. line. Tony found it humorous that his “gooey zits” got quick attention at an ED known for its long wait times. Dr. Bergmann, an infectious disease physician, examined Tony, noting heat, extreme erythema, folliculitis, 15 boils ~1–2 cm in diameter, some draining copious amounts of pus, and numerous seeping ulcerations. Dr. Bergmann applied a topical anesthetic before lancing several boils for culture. He ordered four sets of blood cultures drawn, started broad spectrum IV antibiotics, and immediately scheduled Tony for surgical debridement of his infection. Tom and Julia sat for about an hour in the waiting room before Dr. Bergmann arrived with an update on Tony’s condition. Preliminary Gram stain results from the lab conﬁrmed Gram-positive clusters of cocci in Tony’s boils. Due to the extensive tissue damage, Dr. Bergmann conﬁded to the family that he suspected community acquired-MRSA. Although Tony was “resting uncomfortably,” the surgical debridement of a 3.5 cm 10 cm area was a success. Tony would receive a three-week course of IV vancomycin before being permitted to return to work.
The following post is another student post to wish i have to react adding some extra information related to the student post. My most preferred method of Sampling is Simple Random Sampling. This sampling technique determines the sample by randomly selecting a sample from a large population. Each individual is chosen randomly by chance from the population such that each individual has the same opportunity of being chosen (Sharma, 2017). A simple random sampling method is often an unbiased surveying technique. I chose simple random sampling techniques over the other sampling techniques as it facilitates nursing research and is much efficient and reliable when it comes to dealing with large sample research populations. Moreover, it is advantageous as it is free of classification errors and requires less advanced knowledge of the population than the frame (Gray, Grove, & Sutherland, 2016). Data collected form this technique is simple to interpret and thus much suitable during situations where less information is available concerning the population of interest, and data collection can be randomly conducted at a low cost. It further offers accurate population representation and thus facilitating the smooth success of the research. Nursing research usually involves patients with specific diseases or certain nursing care conditions. This research’s generalizability is based on multiple factors, including the external and internal validity of research methods. From the research of a specific condition, the target population is often widespread, and universal access is usually hard; thus, the need for a sample population will describe the target population (Gray, Grove, & Sutherland, 2016). A simple random sampling technique ensures that the sample population has chosen to bear all the target sample variables and factors that are necessary for the research. This technique is cost not only efficient but also reliable in sample selection as it reduced errors that can result during population detection. References Gray, J. R., Grove, S.

Assignment 1: The Evolution of the Prison System In the US criminal justice system, we make a distinction between prisons and jails. Our jail system is used to house those awaiting trial or those sentenced to less than one year. Our prison system is reserved for those sentenced to more than one year. The history of the prison system in the United States is rich and complicated. We have gone from warehousing inmates to a system that provides education and other services to inmates. Using the Argosy University Online Library, find at least two articles that describe significant changes to the prison systems in the United States beyond what you learned about in your textbook. You can consider federal or state prisons, but keep focused on prisons as opposed to local (i.e., county or city) jails. As you review the evolution of the correctional processes, think about how these changes have been impacted by those who have not been and will never be incarcerated. Think about how punishment within the correctional system has changed and the advancement of inmate rights. Submission Details: By , in a minimum of 250 words, post your responses to the following topics in the . By , respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. Consider the points your classmates make about the services offered and what they propose. How can you expand on what is already written? Are there any statements that a fellow student posted that you disagree with? Purchase the answer to view it

She is sexually attractive and uses condoms most of the time. She has never had a pelvic exam before. The first screening test for Janice would be a pelvic exam. A pelvic exam is a way through which a healthcare provider examines the female organs to check for any gynecological problems. A pelvic exam is recommended when a person has symptoms such as discharge or pain or after turning 21 years. Other reasons for having a pelvic exam include having unexplained pain in the lower belly, vaginal discharge that causes itching or burning, foul smell, especially after engaging in sex, vaginal bleeding that lasts for more than 10 days, missed periods, and intense menstrual cramps (Echeverria-Beltran, n.d). A pelvic exam usually involves three parts. The first part involves looking at the outside of the vagina by the healthcare provider to see any signs of abnormalities. The second part involves the speculum exam, where the healthcare provider inserts the speculum into the vagina using a cool water-based lubricant to see the vaginal canal and the cervix (Wong & Lawton, 2021). After checking the vagina and cervix, a Pap test may be recommended to check any early changes of the cervix before they can become cancer. A Pap test involves taking a sample of mucus cells from the cervix using a thin plastic stick and a special tiny brush. The best way to protect against cervical cancer is to protect against human papilloma virus (HPV), which is a sexually transmitted infection that can cause cervical cancer. However, the patient still need regular Pap tests since the vaccine does not protect against all types of HPV that can cause cancer. If the patient has vaginal discharge, the healthcare provider can take another sample to check for yeast and other causes of discharge. Besides, if the patient is having sex, another sample from the cervix or vagina and urine may be taken to check for possible STI’s. The last part of the pelvic exam is done to check for female organs such as tubes, ovaries, and uterus. The provider may insert one or two gloved fingers into the vagina with the other hand gently applying pressure to the lower part of the abdomen. Sometimes the provider may perform a rectal exam (Rao, 2018). Other screening tests for her include blood pressure screening, cholesterol screening, dental exam, and immunization. Sexually active young females are known to be at increased risk of sexually transmitted illnesses (STIs) and unwanted pregnancies. Educating and counselling patients of her age requires a sensitive and nonjudgmental approach to obtaining a sexual history, dealing with issues of confidentiality, usage of oral contraception, and anticipating what is involved if she has to share her STI status with her partner. When completing sexual history, the provider should consider asking open-ended questions revolving around the 5Ps (partners, practices, prevention of pregnancy, protection of STIs and past history of STIs) (Rubin et al., 2018). When obtaining a sexual history, the provider should encourage her about risk reduction interventions and provide prevention counselling to the identified risks. Besides, the provider should reinforce positive behaviors, including consistent use of oral contraceptives and healthy-seeking behaviors such as making and keeping appointments for healthcare (Rubin et al., 2018). The education and counselling should be appropriate for the patient’s culture, sexual orientation, age, and healthy literacy levels. Echeverria-Beltran, K.
