Application of Physical therapy

Applying Changes to Physical TherapyIn the field I wish to pursue which is physical therapy, I believe there are many things that can be changed. Just like everything else not just in the health profession but in life there are things that when you go to evaluate how efficient and effective you are in your field, you can always continue to find new ways to get better in your field. Physical is no different from these other fields and can always have room for improvement. Throughout this essay, I will take what I have learned from this semester regarding public health principles and use that to discuss some effective and efficient ways to better the physical therapy profession.
One of the public health principles that I learned about this semester was social behavior. This principle can have a very profound effect on any health profession, not just physical therapy. According to our book, Basics of Public Health Core Competencies, “The social and behavioral sciences in public health address the behavioral, social, and cultural factors related to individual and population health and health disparities over the life course”. Social behavior in public health requires that we understand how people take care of their health through their culture, their behavior toward their health, and how people in a community treat themselves. In physical therapy, our clients behavior towards their health in very important because it can determine how will they recover from their injury and determine the level of fluidity or stiffness they may have after their rehab. For example, say that I have a patient that is very lazy and shortcuts his rehab exercises. This means that this client is not getting the level of strength they need in that part of their body. As a physical therapist, you have to push your patients to work as hard as they can so that there is minimal pain after as they attempt to go back to being able to function in society. If their effort in their…


Nowadays, especially in this modern world, gadgets and technologies are getting common and familiar to all people who live in this world. Examples are phones (Apple, Blackberry, Nokia etc.), computers or laptops (Dell, Acer etc.) and other gadgets now can be assume to be one of our life basic needs. But what am I going to stress in this assignment is how to build a good computer system. A good computer system requires great skills on which compartment should be put inside the system. Besides, building a computer system can gain our experience and skills in this special field. We might be able to fix a computer in our own house instead of calling for experts in computers. This is because we are familiarize with system itself and this will able us to detect problems easily. Furthermore, we can build a system by following our own desire as long as the computer system is working properly and fast. Now I will try to list three types of computer system inside tables according to my suggestions.

Japanese Educational System The Japan has one of the world best educated populations. With only a 2% high school drop out rate and a 48% rate of kids who move up to universities, Japan has very high standards for their students. With the student responsibility and curriculum a high standard for education is possible. Japanese education system and American education system both have their strong points and in comparison it is hard to tell who is better. In the Japanese educational system the students learn responsibility through class room management. When a child is very young around the age of preschool the child is taught to be clean and keep the class room clean. They emphasize on a students responsibility by making them scrub class room floors and desks, organize many papers, and be kept to the up most highest standard of cleanliness. In the American school system, they teach student responsibility by teaching life lessons, academic honestly, and doing homework. By teaching life lessons they teach of good morals and being responsible for your own actions. Academic honestly is important to the American educational system.. Being honest and responsible for a test and what the student knows teaches them academic responsibility. The curriculum in Japan puts the children through 6 years of grade school, 3 years of junior high, and three years of high school following with an optional 4 year university. In the Japanese education system they cover social studies, mathematics, science, language, music, arts and handcrafting, and physical education. After weekly school on the weekends the students study at an all day long core group. The Japanese focus more on useful knowledge. In the American school system a student attends 6 years of grade school, 3 years of junior high, and for years of high school. Even though America has one more year of schooling dose not mean that they are necessarily smarter. Japans students spend 60 more days in school than…

Rainforests are one of the world’s most important resources. Without it, we probably wouldn’t be alive because it provides a huge percentage of the world’s oxygen. Deforestation has affected the rainforest in many ways; it negatively affected the earth’s climate and eliminated over half of the world’s rainforest.
Most organisms rely on their environment, how would they be alive if their environment to being cut down? Scientists have estimated that more than half of the Earth’s species, plants, animals, and insects call the rainforest home, and a huge percentage are herbivorous. So due to the cutting down of trees which have leaves, some animals starve or have to find a new home. Populations of animals in the rainforest environment have been rejecting due to deforestation. They are beginning to have fewer places to live. For example, in the Amazon, birds, cats, monkeys, sloths, and many exotic animals would be without a home or even starve to death if the rainforest is tore down. Also, animals are sometimes forced to leave due to the lack of food and often wander to areas where they are not welcome. The loss of just a small area can lead to the extinction of an animal. Also, deforestation has many other effects on the world.
Deforestation has eliminated a huge percentage of the world’s rainforests. As large as the country of Panama of rainforests is lost each year because of this practice, equivalent to 36 football fields every minute, if we keep losing trees at this rate, we will not have a rainforest by the year 2040. Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land area. Also, deforestation affects the earth and its resource.
Deforestation affects the earth’s physical environment. Deforestation drives climate changes, Trees help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor back into the atmosphere, so without trees, the water cycle is harmed. Removing trees deprives the rainforest of portions of its canopy which blocks…

Limited eco resources (or factors of prod.): define land, labour, capital and enterprise.(Free gifts of nature, all human input, man-made aids to production The entrepreneur combines the other factors of production and takes risks) Unlimited wants. Opp cost (value of next best alternative given up)
Define the division of labour (breaking down prod. process into a large number of specialist tasks) Know the advts (practice makes perfect, can concentrate on what you are best at, save on capital goods etc) and disadvts (boredom, standardised products, interdependence etc) Mobility of the factors of production (geographical and occupational)Linked to specialisation in modern economies is the need for..
Money (anything generally acceptable as payment for goods and services) Functions of money (medium of exchange, store of value, measure of value, ) Features of money (limited in supply, divisible, portable, durable, identical)Without money we’d have to use barter (the direct exchange of one good for another) which is inefficient (unless there is a double coincidence of wants)
Resource allocation is a v. important concept.

Crane (machine)
A crane is a type of machine, generally equipped with a hoist, wire ropes or chains, and sheaves, that can be used both to lift and lower materials and to move them horizontally. It is mainly used for lifting heavy things and transporting them to other places. It uses one or more simple machines to create mechanical advantage and thus move loads beyond the normal capability of a human. Cranes are commonly employed in the transport industry for the loading and unloading of freight, in the construction industry for the movement of materials and in the manufacturing industry for the assembling of heavy equipment.
The first construction cranes were invented by the Ancient Greeks and were powered by men or beasts of burden, such as donkeys. These cranes were used for the construction of tall buildings. Larger cranes were later developed, employing the use of human tread wheels, permitting the lifting of heavier weights. In the High Middle Ages, harbor cranes were introduced to load and unload ships and assist with their construction – some were built into stone towers for extra strength and stability. The earliest cranes were constructed from wood, but cast iron and steel took over with the coming of the Industrial Revolution
For many centuries, power was supplied by the physical exertion of men or animals, although hoists in watermills and windmills could be driven by the harnessed natural power. The first ‘mechanical’ power was provided by steam engines, the earliest steam crane being introduced in the 18th or 19th century, with many remaining in use well into the late 20th century. Modern cranes usually use internal combustion engines or electric motors and hydraulic systems to provide a much greater lifting capability than was previously possible, although manual cranes are still utilized where the provision of power would be uneconomic.
Cranes exist in an enormous variety of forms – each tailored to a specific use. Sometimes sizes range from…


“A Good Man is Hard to Find,” by Flannery O’Connner, is a story about a family, who, is heads on a family trip. However, after a car accident, they end up on a dirt road and ultimately lose their lives to a prison escapee, the Misfit. The grandmother, who doesn’t have a name, is a prominent character in this story. She feels that she is superior, morally, to the other people. It was also very easy for her to pass judgments about everyone, except herself, and she is also deceitful and selfish. It is only at the very end of the story, that she has the realization that she isn’t as perfect as everyone else, but it is too late.
As the story begins, the family on their way to Florida on a family trip. However, the Grandmother doesn’t want to go Folrida, she wants to go Tennessee to visit her “family connections. This is where you first see her deceitful and selfish ways. As she is reading the paper, she tells the family of this criminal, the Misfit, who is headed to Florida. She begins to try and change her sons mind about going to Florida. “I wouldn’t take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it. I couldn’t answer to my conscience if I did.” (O’Conner, 1953) Although, the Misfit has escaped, it makes you think is she looking out for the best interest for her family of just herself, because she only wants to go to Tennessee. She also states that the children have been to Florida before and tries to say that they need to “… see different parts of the world and be broad. They never have been to east Tennessee.” (O’Conner, 1953)
Another place where she shows deceit and selfishness is when they are riding and she begins to talk about an old house that she remembered in the neighborhood they were driving through. She begins to describe it. She already knew that Bailey, her son, would not even think twice about stopping. To try to change his mind, she begins to tell the children that the house had secret panels in it and that…


Truman’s popularity sank during his second term, due largely to accusations of corruption, charges that the administration was “soft on communism,” and the stalemated Korean War. Unsurprisingly, Truman chose not to run in 1952. The Democratic Party’s candidate, Governor Adlai Stevenson, lost to war hero and Republican General Dwight D. Eisenhower in the fall election.Truman’s legacy has become clearer and more impressive in the years since he left office. Most scholars admit that the President faced enormous challenges domestically, internationally, and politically. While he occasionally failed to measure accurately the nation’s political tenor and committed some significant policy blunders, Truman achieved notable successes. Domestically, he took important first steps in civil rights, protected many of the New Deal’s gains, and presided over an economy that would enjoy nearly two decades of unprecedented growth. In foreign affairs, the President and his advisers established many of the basic foundations of America foreign policy, especially in American-Soviet relations, that would guide the nation in the decades ahead. On the whole, Truman is currently celebrated by the public, politicians, and scholars alike.
