A Case Study in Classic Mistakes

A Case Study in Classic Mistakes  Mike was eating lunch in his office and looking out his window on a bright April morning. He was a technical lead for Giga Safe, a medical insurance company. “Mike, you got the funding for the Giga-Quote program! Congratulations!” It was Bill, Mike’s boss. “The executive committee loved the idea of automating our medical insurance quotes. It also loved the idea of uploading the day’s quotes to the head office every night so that we always have the latest sales leads online. I’ve got a meeting now, but we can discuss the details later. Good job on that proposal!” Mike had written the proposal for the Giga-Quote program months earlier, but his proposal had been for a standalone PC program without any ability to communicate with the head office. Oh well. This would give him a chance to lead a client-server project in a modern GUI environment, and that’s what he wanted. They had almost a year to do the project, and that should give them plenty of time to add a new feature. Mike picked up the phone and dialed his wife’s number. “Honey, let’s go out to dinner tonight to celebrate …” The next morning, Bill met with Mike to discuss the project. “OK, Bill. What’s up? This doesn’t sound like quite the same proposal I worked on.” Bill felt uneasy. Mike hadn’t participated in the revisions to the proposal, but there hadn’t been time to involve him. Once the executive committee heard about the Giga-Quote program, they’d taken over. “The executive committee loves the idea of building software to automate medical insurance quotes. But they want to be able to transfer the field quotes into the mainframe computer automatically. And they want to have the system done before our new rates…

A CASE STUDY ON CNS INFECTION

A CASE STUDY ON CNS INFECTION   Submitted to; Ms. Verlyn Perez RN,MSN   Submitted by; Marie Joy R. Luczon Student Nurse I.INTRODUCTION A febrile seizure is a convulsion in a child triggered by a fever. Such convulsions occur without any underlying brain or spinal cord infection or other neurological cause. A febrile seizure is a convulsion that occurs in some children with a high temperature (fever). The vast majority of febrile seizures are not serious. A seizure triggered by a fever is usually harmless and typically doesn’t indicate a long-term or ongoing problem. The first febrile seizure is one of life’s most frightening moments for parents. Most parents are afraid that their child will die or have brain damage. Thankfully, simple febrile seizures are harmless. There is no evidence that simple febrile seizures cause death, brain damage, mental retardation, a decrease in IQ, or learning difficulties. However, a very small percentage of children go on to develop other seizure disorders such as epilepsy later in life. Although described by the ancient Greeks, it was not until this century that febrile seizures were recognized as a distinct syndrome separate from epilepsy. In 1980, a consensus conference held by the National Institutes of Health described a febrile seizure as, “An event in infancy or childhood usually occurring between three months and five years of age, associated with fever, but without evidence of intracranial infection or defined cause.”It does not exclude children with prior neurological impairment and neither provides specific temperature criteria nor defines a “seizure.” Another definition from the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) is “a seizure occurring in childhood after 1 month of age associated with a febrile illness not caused by an infection of the central nervous system (CNS), without previous neonatal seizures or a previous unprovoked seizure, and…

This pathology either causes hemorrhage from a tear in the vessel wall or impairs the cerebral circulation by a partial or complete occlusion of the vessel lumen with transient or permanent effects. If blood flow is disrupted at any point between the heart and the brain, portions of the brain relying on blood from the obstructed blood vessel become deprived of oxygen. Thus, making it starve to death. A stroke results in permanent damage to the brain tissue. Persons suffering from stroke may…

7 Reasons Why You Will Never Do Anything Amazing With Your Life

Raymmar Tirado Become a fan 7 Reasons Why You Will Never Do Anything Amazing With Your Life Posted: 02/10/2014 6:46 pm EST Updated: 04/12/2014 5:59 am EDT Yeah that’s right, you heard me… I’m talking to you… I’m calling you out. I’m looking you in the eyes (OK well, not really since you are probably reading this article, but figuratively, I am burning a cyclops type hole in your face right now) and telling you that you don’t stand a chance. I’m telling you that if you can read this article, look through this list and not claim it as your own, then you should be a little worried. Actually, you should be very worried. You should drop everything and immediately question your existence on earth. You should find a mirror, look yourself in the eyes, raise your hand and slap yourself in the face. Got it? Now repeat that until you come to your senses and continue reading whenever you’re ready. I’m Talkin’ Bout Street Skill, Son! I’m not talking about the study hard, party light, graduate-top-of-your-class skills. I’m not even talking about the slack-off, skip class, smoke weed, drink and party but still graduate skill-set your $50,000+ diploma has lead you to believe you have. I’m talking bout step out your door, make some moves, and get-some-shit-done kinds of skills! Some move-out-your-mama’s-house, quit your job, say “fuck the world” and then actually go do it kinds of skills. The kinds of skills you develop in the real world, outside the bubble of your parents protection or the ideological indoctrination that has overwhelmed our entire educational system. Skills that can be had by anyone willing to pay the price to get them. Skills that are quickly becoming extinct. I’m talking bout skills that cannot be taught in a classroom or in a textbook….
