You are in the hospital waiting room for intensive care patients. Your (mate, mother, father, child — choose your option), for whom you are the legal representative to make decisions in a situation where this person is comatose, is in the intensive care unit. There was a tragic car wreck and this person was subjected to major trauma and has been on life support for two weeks. This person is no longer under sedation and has not been for four days, which means the lack of any upper, cognitive brain activity is not the result of sedation from drugs. This person is unable to breathe on his/her own. The heart is still beating, but the physicians have explained that this can happen even though the upper brain is effectively dead, namely, the part of the brain where cognition (the personality) resides. This person shows no response and would have to be fed by a tube if kept “alive” in this state. The physicians are recommending that the breathing support be suspended/ceased, encouraging you and your family to consult with your minister(s) for advice and counsel. What are your thoughts on this? : 1. Study carefully the instructor’s lesson for week 12 on bioethics and medical ethics before doing this case study, especially the portions on defining death. 2. For people of faith, this case study is, in part, an effort to synchronize a religious definition of death with a scientific definition of death, which can be difficult, because the two definitions are using different means of measurement and a different language. However, from the Bible you might study Genesis 2:7, Ecclesiastes 12:7, Matthew 10:28, 2 Corinthians 5:8, and James 2:26.
Mass Murderers and Serial Killers Go through the two case studies outlined below: Andrea Yates was convicted of drowning her five children and given a sentence of life in prison. Later, it was found that the sentence of life in prison was based on the inaccurate testimony of a highly respected forensic psychiatrist. Her life sentence was overturned, and she was found guilty by reason of insanity and sent to a mental hospital. Yates suffered from severe postpartum depression and had been hospitalized for an attempted suicide before she killed her children. Yates was delusional and was having persecutory thoughts that were degrading and persecuting her for her motherhood. She was also having command hallucinations telling her she was a bad mother and her children would grow up to be criminals, so she should save them by drowning them. In 1980, John Wayne Gacy was found guilty of murdering thirty-three young men. He picked up most of his victims at a local homosexual bar. Other victims were taken home for as prospective employees for his construction business. The remains of twenty-nine victims were found buried under his home while the other four victims had been thrown into the Des Plaines River near Chicago. Gacy always maintained his innocence throughout the trial and appeals process claiming someone else put the bodies in the crawl space beneath his house. Also known as “The Killer Clown,” Gacy used handcuffs and chloroform to subdue his victims, and then he would tie a rope around their necks and slowly twist until he squeezed the life out of them. Gacy had been married twice and had two children from the first marriage. Both marriages ended in divorce when his wives found items from his victims or were unhappy from a lack of any sexual contact between them. During both marriages and afterwards, Gacy was considered an outstanding member of his community. Gacy was executed on May 10, 1994. (mass murder) and (serial murder) can be analyzed and categorized by fitting them into one or more of the theories developed to explain the phenomenon of multiple murder. The theories are developed by experts in the field who study mass and serial murderers.

Each student will interview an early childhood teacher and analyze the interview content in terms of the teacher’s philosophy of guidance and classroom management. This assignment will support students in developing their own philosophy of guidance and classroom management. Students will apply this interview content to any one early childhood theory they choose. The write-up will include student analysis of the interview, and application to a theory. This should be 500 words minimum in length. You will need a cover page, main body, and reference page. You must use in-text citations to clearly link your ideas with the reference cited.

for CSI documenting your password recommendations. Your paper should look like a real policy document and not an academic paper. At the end of the standard, . Remember in this exercise that CSI appears to be challenging the old-school 8-character complex password rule. If you wish to challenge that rule yourself, or reinforce that rule and continue to use it, you need to supply at least one reference, and more would make for a more effective argument. Your citation does not need to be in any formal citation style. Ensure that your citation is good enough to find the reference. . Do not rely on publicly available templates to fill in. Because this is a concise and focused paper, some matching will be detected by the SafeAssign tool. It is common for subject headers to match previous submissions. You may get a match score in the 30% range. Don’t worry about that. I’ll be looking for original work in the body of the paper. Read examples of password standards online. Some organizations may call them password policies, which is confusing, but that ‘policy’ will focus on specifics on how to put a proper password together. You also will find some authoritative recommendations from NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). Happy Googling.

In your response, discuss what aspects of an effective, motivating classroom environment can increase the opportunities for students to be creative in the classroom. Be sure also to respond to any questions that your instructor might pose. This discussion post will continue into Week Three.
