Time is a term that is closely associated with change. Nothing remains the same over time. Progress and regress are presented in every aspect of life. Literature illustrates this on several occasions. This may be exemplified by observing Trifles by Susan Glaspell. Trifles illustrates adverse identifications of women in earlier Americana that correlate to the identity women maintain in our current society. Male dominance is one of the central themes displayed throughout the play. The women identified in Trifles have modest voices compared to their male counterparts. This causes numerous opportunities for male dominance from the beginning to the end of the play. Their opinions are blatantly disregarded. An instance of male dominance may be illustrated by the interaction between Mr. Henderson and Mrs. Hale. Mr. Henderson requests information regarding Mrs. Hale's relationship with the Wrights. Once Mrs. Hale begins to provide details regarding the Wrights' lifestyle, Mr. Henderson stops her mid-sentence and demands a brief answer. Another instance of male dominance is displayed when men brought attention to the women's handy work. When Mrs. Wright constructed a quilt, the men basically made fun of the women's craft. This is illustrated by the lines that state, “Mrs. Hale: It’s log cabin pattern. Pretty, isn’t it? I wonder if she was goin’ to quilt or just knot it? Sherrif: They wonder if she was going to quilt it or just knot it. (the men laugh, the women look abashed).” (Glaspell) The next instance of male dominance is revealed by an interaction between Mr. Hale and Mrs. Wright. Mr. Hale outright identifies Mrs. Wright's opinion as frivolous. This is revealed through the lines that read, "…but I thought maybe if I went to the house and talked about it before his wife, though I said to Harry that I didn’t know as what his wife wanted made much difference to…...

Adverse Possession

...A Squatter – friend or foe? On the 1st of September 2012, England and Wales passed legislation criminalising all acts of squatting, subjecting squatters to arrest, fine and imprisonment. Will Ireland follow in this direction? At first glance, it seems that there are no rationales to the law of adverse possession and that squatter’s rights fly in the face of common sense, depriving the ordinary citizen of his right to peaceful enjoyment of his property and granting to the squatter an undeserved benefit. The potential abuse of this right is that which motivated the change of legislation in the UK. However the position of the Irish courts is to look more closely at the rights, and analyze their effect within a rural Irish setting. It appears that within this setting, adverse possession does in fact, indirectly benefit the community in which the squatter resides. Nevertheless, it is accepted that rights of adverse possession are open to abuse. In attempting to discourage potential abuse, the law provides that a squatter must be in uninterrupted possession of private property for a minimum of twelve years before ownership rights can be claimed. The law also recognises all acts of interruption by or on behalf of the owner, no matter how slight, as sufficient in order to restart the twelve year clock running again as against the squatter. For example, acts of painting doors, fences, entering with a key and gardening. In this regard, only property which has been......

Adverse Trend

...Adverse Trend: Telecare Abandonment of Calls Cindy Roloff HCS/482 August 4, 2014 Lynn Bertsch Adverse Trend: Telecare Abandonment of Calls Utilization of data to resolve an adverse trend is a form of process improvement that has a basis in factual and representable information. Upon identification of an adverse trend, there must be relevant data collection to determine an etiology prior to taking action. Technology can assist with this search to expedite the improvement process. The purpose of this paper is to discuss applying technology to create an objective response to the adverse trend of abandoned calls in the Telecare clinical setting. Telecare Overview Telecare triage nurses manage symptom-based calls from patients at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Outpatient Clinic incoming call center. Currently, there are seven nurses that staff telephone triage with a volume of approximately 250 to 300 calls per day. The office hours in Telecare are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with observance of all federal holidays. The Telecare nurse is responsible for answering calls efficiently at approximately 32 calls per day. The Telecare nurse triages symptoms from the patient and obtains urgent access to the clinic via an evidenced based triage program called Veteran’s Health Gateway (VHG). This program helps the nurse make clinical decisions per protocols and provides evidenced based education recommendations based on the triage......

Radio Frequency Identification (Rfid)

...Running head: RADIO FREQUENCY IDENTIFICATION Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Esther Olayinka Olagbaju November 27, 2011 Chamberlain College of Nursing Introduction Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a generic term that is used to describe a system that transmits the identity (in the form of a unique serial number) of an object or person wirelessly, using radio waves. It is in use all around us; from the chips inserted in pets as an ID tags, to the EZPass through a tollbooth. In short, this technology does not require contact or line of sight for communication. RFID data can be read through the human body, clothing, and non-metallic materials (AIM, 2011). As a member of the committee created by the Government to investigate the potential of implanting an electronic record (EHR) into every U.S. citizen, this research will look into the benefits of this business decision to the Government, and then we will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of RFID being implanted under the human skin, which is then followed up by the laws governing this action if it can be enforced or voluntary based procedure, and finally the percentage of people that will be willing to go through this procedure. Body of Analysis Radio frequency identification technology is slick and easy to manage and also comes in three general varieties, namely; passive, active, and semi-passive (also known as battery-assisted). Passive tags need no internal power source and are only active......

Adverse Selection

...Running Head: ADVERSE SELECTION What Is Adverse Selection Adverse Selection Adverse selection can be defined as unfavorable conditions which arise as a result of persons with expected loss which exceed the calculated average of the population select an insurance plan (HealthInsurance.Info, 2010). In such a scenario the insurer loses money so insurers are forced to raise premiums. Normally premiums are factored based on the average expected utility (usage) of both high and low risk individuals and is thus shared (Feldstein, 2012). To counter adverse selection, insurers institute preferred risk selection which gives them the ability to weed out high risk persons. One such selection measure is to add pre-existing conditions clauses to the policy that prevents or excludes coverage for certain conditions for a specified period of time. Adverse selection and the demand for healthcare create a moral hazard which stems from the fact that people will demand less healthcare services based on the elasticity of their demand curve thus the more insurance pays the more people will use it and the more they have to pay the less they will exploit (Schenk, n.d.). This creates an inefficient use of resources. Options for changing this dilemma include a reduction of physician incentives to providing fee based services and increased patient cost sharing Feldstein, 2012). The greater success an......

Adverse Possession

...Adverse Possession Juan Feliciano Week 4 BA260 12/29/2014 James Scurlock When looking into the case between Danny and Lisa I do believe that Lisa does have a defense against Danny. We will look at the four elements of adverse possession where I feel that Lisa will win her case against Danny. Adverse possession is a means of obtaining the title to land without delivery of a deed. Lisa is considered the adverse possessor. Both Lisa and Danny did not know about the property before all of this happened. For the property to be held adversely, first it has to show that possession must be actual and exclusive, which means that the possessor has to take sole physical occupancy of the property. It stated that Lisa did frequently use the gazebo and once it was built she placed a fence between her and Danny’s yard. This is a great example of taking sole physical occupancy since she did use the gazebo multiple times and placed a fence around it, pretty much taking ownership of the property. Next the possession must be open, visible and notorious, which means that it has to be conspicuous that the owner can presume to know of it. I’m pretty sure that Danny knew of this since he is Lisa’s neighbor and since they did not have a fence beforehand the gazebo could be easily seen, by Danny and other neighbors. Also the possession must be continuous and peaceable for the required period of time. This means that Lisa must not have been interrupted in the occupancy by the true owner,......

Adverse Trends

...Adverse Events and Data Management Alice Robertson HCS/482 January 19, 2015 Kym Pfrank Adverse Events and Data Management The term “adverse event” describes harm to a patient as a result of medical care. An adverse event indicates that the care resulted in an undesirable clinical outcome and that an underlying disease did no cause the clinical outcome. Adverse events include medical errors, such as the use of incompatible blood products, incorrect dispensing and administration of medications. Medication errors can result in patient harm including death. Adverse events, near misses, incidents of any kind are to be reported and put in a system called Incident Response Improvement System (IRIS). All IRIS reports get reviewed by a primary reviewer and the risk manager daily. They follow up on all reports and see trends happening whether it is weekly or monthly. They are also able to compare trends from any time period they select. If trends are seen it is imperative to follow up with staff to find out why there is a rise. What can we do to make sure these events never happen again? These reports get printed in a flow sheet and are shared daily in our safety huddles. The reports stay opened until closed by the appropriate managers. Each report is followed up by the risk manager and will not be closed until each issue is fixed or corrected. Adverse drug events according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention cost 3.5 million in extra medical costs each......

Did Women Have an Early Modern Europe

...History 103g Did Women Have An Early Modern Europe During the emergence of the Early Modern Europe, nations were known to have developed both intellectually and culturally. Movements such as the Renaissance, Reformation, religious wars, scientific revolution, industrialization, Enlightenment, and French Revolution had brought about the nations’ development in terms of thoughts, expressions, and societal and political issues that characterized the Early Modern Europe. New knowledge was increasingly acquired. New thoughts on religion, natural, and political philosophy were increasingly developed. New instruments and machines were increasingly invented. Yet, only the males contributed to most of these tremendous developments, questioning whether or not women have an Early Modern Europe. Thus, to conclude whether women did experience an Early Modern Europe, women’s role on the movements that characterized the Early Modern Europe would have to be assessed. The period of the Renaissance was characterized by the emergence of a cultural movement, ‘humanism’, and classical art and architecture that are naturalistic, realistic, and humanistic. During this period, classical ideas were reintroduced in the increasing works of humanists and artists. Such include Petrarch’s ‘Rules for the Successful Ruler’, Machiavelli’s ‘From the Discourses on Livy’, Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Vitruvian Man’, and Dürer’s ‘Adam and Eve’. These primary sources are all the works of male humanists and......

Women in Conquest and Early Colonization

...Pressure on the Mestiza/Indigenous Women of Colonial Latin America Colonial times in Latin America were tough for both mestizas/indigenous and Spanish women. Latin America’s status of indigenous women changed in terms of their positions in the hierarchy of society, labor roles, and their marriage responsibilities and their own freedoms. The Spanish women began to impose several changes in order to accustom the indigenous women to their level in order to make the “New Spain” a reality. During early conquest, mestiza women, especially those of noble classes were accustomed to be married off as soon as their fathers had an idea of who they wanted to be allied with and to move up in hierarchy. As Susan Socolow said, “Indeed, chiefs offered their sisters and daughters to Spanish conquistadors, continuing the pre-Columbian pattern of using women to appease the powerful and ally with them.” Reigning Spanish conquistadors or other tribal leaders sought to establish alliances, so women were in other words seen as objects to benefit them. Spanish women at the time of colonization were rare, but for instance, Juan Jaramillo was one of the early conquistadors who married. As said, “Her father, don Leonel de Cervantes was a comendador of the Order of Santiago…” The few rare Spanish women available during the colonization state tended to be noble daughters of comendadors, who were married off quickly to other rising nobles, which is similar to how mestiza women were given off,......

Identification of Women After Marriage

...IDENTIFICATION OF WOMEN AFTER MARRIAGE Marriage is known by all as a legal union of a man and woman forming together to become one as equal partners. Unfortunately, in the plays Trifles by Susan Glaspell and Doll House by Henrik Ibsen. Marriage is identify as a type of union were women have to adapt to a mans need, and be subject to be beneath their husband. In both stories, the main idea and theme interact with each other in the sense of degrading women and leaving them with no sense of worth. The universal definition of Theme is defined as the subject of a talk or a person’s thought. However, in literature it’s illustrated as a main idea or the foundation for an entire piece. In the plays, Trifles and Doll House, one common similarity shared was theme. Identification of women was a main component because not only did both story portrayed women as not having any sense of identity but because their role were mostly determined by who their husband was. In Doll House, the main character Nora is initially known for her silly, childish ways. For example, “oh yes, Torvald let us…squander a little…I’ve been buying a lot…oh, please Torvald can I hung money on the tree…oh please wouldn’t that be fun.” (Act I) This quote demonstrate how poorly Nora thinks as a woman and how she acts and beg like a child just to get what she wants. As a matter of facts, because Nora acts like a child her husband treats her as such. Instead of calling her by her name he refers to her as his......

Women Early Modern Period

...The main characteristics of the role of women in Europe changed for the worst during this period. To what extent do you agree with this view of the role and position of women in the Early Modern period? During the Early Modern period changes involving society and religion began taking place, creating a society that was beneficial to elderly men, whilst restricting women in most aspects of their lives, including life partners and even their ability to become financially independent. This all leads to the conclusion that their role in society ultimately changed for the worst during this period. Although some evidence does point to the fact that men sometimes experienced oppression and a lack of independence over their own lives. During the Early Modern period, women and their sexuality definitely changed for the worst. During this time people believed anatomist Vesalius about how a woman’s genitalia was the same as a man’s except it was outside in, this was presented in a book called De humani corporis fabrica libri septem, 1543. This led to the belief that women weren’t equal to men because as the Bible states Eve was made from Adam’s rib, and because of the fact men were supposedly created first, this implied importance for their role in society. Galen was one of the main people that disagreed with Vesalius and believed that men and women were sexually equal. However it is possible that Galen’s view wasn’t as supported because religion at the time supported Vesalius......

Women Early Jobs

...industrialization has transformed the economy of the United States to great heights. This could be seen with the rise of new businesses, technological advances and development of modern and large-scale factories. This has opened job opportunities, not only to men but also to women. Despite it being advantageous to women, industrialism has imposed a challenge to men, as women are now going for the same position as men in the job market. Gender segregation has affected women in various ways some of which include; low-security conditions, limited job opportunities, poor remuneration and unhealthy working environment just to mention a few. Prior to the nineteenth century, outside the domestic sphere, women had limited sources of income. Industrialization had an undeniable impact on the role of women in all aspects. It affected the way people lived because of the demands of exporting and importing of the industrial economy. Instead a daughter working in the family household, she was seen as a source of income to the family (O’Kelly and Carney, 1986).Sexual harassment and abuse have often been part of the work environment. Many of the supervisors, mostly men, took advantage of their authority and abused young girls and women. In her autobiography, Mary Anderson & Winslow (1951) discusses Anderson’s life as a factory worker. Anderson was 22 years old and she was a member of the trade union movement. Particularly in one of her jobs with Selz and Company, “it was......

The Relationship Between Women and the Early Islamic Calipahtes

...hierarchy. How and where women fall into that hierarchy and their relationships with the early Islamic caliphates they inhabited, are other examples of how dramatically and drastically religious beliefs can shape and mold a society’s perception and treatment of a particular segment of the population. When looking to define the relationship between an ever evolving population of women and the religious and political environment in which they reside, one must first evaluate the different aspects which shape their environment. Under whose rule did they live? What was their interpretation of the Koran? Where did the leadership hail from and what kind of social world view did they assume? All of these factors provided the basis and precedent for determining a woman’s place in society. In the fourth Sura of the Koran, AL-NISA, many laws and regulations are revealed to Mohammed regarding the treatment of women and what their rightful place is among the populace. This Sura is commonly thought of to have been revealed to Mohammed after he migrated to Medina, fleeing oppression of the Meccan elite. This was a very unsettling time for Mohammed, in that he was battling an established government structure in Mecca; battles which bore many casualties. In an almost knowing fashion, this Sura deals directly with how women who had been widowed from battle should be treated. “If you fear you cannot deal justly with the orphans, then marry such of the women as appeal to you, two,......

Women

...12:06 Page 1 WOMEN, GENDER AND WORK People are not defined solely by their work, nor is it possible to ignore the effects of factors outside the workplace on a person's status at work. To seek equality at work without seeking equality in the larger society – and at home – is illusory.Thus an examination of the issues surrounding women, gender and work must be holistic. That means considering the role of productive work in life as a whole and the distribution of unpaid work as well as the myriad questions relating to employment. This important anthology brings together the thinking of leading philosophers, economists and lawyers on this complex subject. Selected recent articles from the multidisciplinary International Labour Review are assembled for the first time to illuminate questions such as how we should define equality, what equal opportunity means and what statistics tell us about differences between men and women at work, how the family confronts globalization and what is the role of law in achieving equality. There is an examination of policy – to deal with sexual harassment and wage inequality, for example, as well as part-time work, the glass ceiling, social security, and much more. A major reference on the best of current research and analysis on gender roles and work. Martha Fetherolf Loutfi has been Editor-in-Chief of the International Labour Review, a Senior Economist for the Brandt Commission and in the ILO’s Employment and......

Representations of Women in Early 20th Century Art

...Viewers do not simply witness these products of history, but engage in personal experiences and responses provoked by them. Thus, art has served as a powerful engine both reflecting and fueling political, social, and religious ideologies.[2] In particular, the subject of women has accumulated controversial discussion in the visual arts because of consistencies witnessed across all these constructs. In exploring female representations in art, feminist scholars have particularly noted the perpetual limitations set upon women not only as subjects but as spectators. While artistic movements progressed over the centuries, it appears the connotations of women have remained stagnant. Even in the early 20th century which saw a turn in traditional gender roles, painting continued to be dominated by the male experience demonstrated in the guises of the nude, despite aesthetic and conceptual differences. Such control gave women little privilege to explore their own experience, resulting in a struggle of identity. After the mid 19th century, paintings of the nude increasingly replaced men with female subjects, although women contented to be absent from major art academies. Unlike their respectable counterparts, images of women actually reinforced ideologies of the power relationship between the genders, as female representations were branded with connotations of the "body and nature, that is passive, available, possessable, powerless".[3] Vanguard artists such as Heckel, Munch and......
