Explain why frailty is considered a syndrome. 

Nursing Avery, a 25-year-year old AGPCNP student, is working with Mrs. Greer, a 91-year-old resident at a long-term care facility. Avery is evaluating Mrs. Greer for frailty. Mrs. Greer has a PMH of diabetes, arthritis, HTN, an MI, and hypothyroidism. Through physical assessment and reading her history, Avery finds that Mrs. Greer’s spouse of nearly seven decades died within the past year. She does not have any children or family support, though she has some friends at the facility. Since her husband’s death, she has experienced increasing fatigue. She lost 14 pounds and had a gastrostomy tube insertion for nutrition. She experienced a decline in physical activity and now requires a wheelchair for mobility (previously ambulated without assistance). Mrs. Greer has withdrawn verbally to the point that it is not possible to assess cognitive function. Please respond to the questions below in your initial post: 
1. Explain why frailty is considered a syndrome. 
2. Describe risk factors for frailty. Explain if any of these risk factors are modifiable.
3. Describe interventions, including complementary and alternative, the team could consider to address Mrs. Greer’s frailty.

For Assignment 3, you had to write about what Ron Becker calls “the SLUMPY class.” Becker argues that SLUMPY class media content in the 1990s was edgy-but-not-too-edgy, inclusive but only inclusive of minorities that most white, middle- and upper-class liberals could readily accept (e.g., white affluent gay men in what we would today call homonormative relationships).

For Assignment 3, you had to write about what Ron Becker calls “the SLUMPY class.” Becker argues that SLUMPY class media content in the 1990s was edgy-but-not-too-edgy, inclusive but only inclusive of minorities that most white, middle- and upper-class liberals could readily accept (e.g., white affluent gay men in what we would today call homonormative relationships).
One of the GSIs (Lashon) recently asked me if I thought that the idea of the SLUMPY class is still operative today. I said I do think there is still a SLUMPY class, and there is still media being made for them — and with social media, SLUMPYs are making media for each other, too. So my question for you is: What is SLUMPY media today? What kinds of TV series and social media content do you see that you think is made by and/or for the SLUMPYs? What traits do you think define the SLUMPY class today (feel free to make up a new acronym, if you want to!), and what media do you see that you feel is targeted towards making that group happy/entertained/willing to buy things/feel “woke”/feel edgy/feel current, while not challenging them too much?
Write about it in a (minimum 2-page, double-spaced) essay and get up to 4 points!!!

While most applications of blockchain technology have emerged in the financial sector (for example, Zcash, Circle, and Abra), its practical applications go beyond finance, because essentially any type of digital asset can be tracked and traded through a blockchain.

Topic: Blockchain Initiatives Literature Review
Question:
While most applications of blockchain technology have emerged in the financial sector (for example, Zcash, Circle, and Abra), its practical applications go beyond finance, because essentially any type of digital asset can be tracked and traded through a blockchain. Many different industries are experimenting in the blockchain space, even though this experimentation is still in its early stages. Examples range from medical records (MedRec, PokitDok), to digital rights and micropayments (Brave Browser, Ascribe, Open Music Initiative), identity systems (uPort), and supply chains (Everledger, Hyperledger).
For your literature review this week, you are required to choose a blockchain initiative that interests you. It could be an existing application that you have come across in your own research, one of the examples listed above, or an idea that you may have for blockchain technology as a solution to a business problem.
You are to review the literature on your blockchain initiative and discuss problems and gaps that have been identified in the literature. You will expand on the issue and how researchers have attempted to examine that issue by collecting data – you are NOT collecting data, just reporting on how researchers did their collection.
Paper Layout:
Title Page
Table of contents: Use a Microsoft Enabled Table of Contents feature.
Background: Describe the issue, discuss the problem, and elaborate on any previous attempts to examine that issue. Be sure to discuss similar blockchain initiatives here.
Research Questions: In the identified problem area that you are discussing, what were the research questions that were asked? Be sure to include main research questions from all the literature you are reviewing.
Methodology: What approach did the researcher use, qualitative, quantitative, survey, case study? Describe the population that was chosen. You will discuss the methodology for all the literature you are reviewing.
Data Analysis: What were some of the findings, for example, if there were any hypotheses asked, were they supported?
Conclusions: What was the conclusion of any data collections, e.g., were research questions answered, were hypotheses supported? Be sure to also include the similarities and differences between the literature. Also discuss here the future of this blockchain initiative and if it is a viable initiative.
Instructions:
Minimum 7 pages, not including title and reference page. PLEASE FOLLOW PAGE LAYOUT.
Follow APA 7 guidelines. Be sure to conduct research on formatting literature reviews.
Your literature review should include a minimum of 8 scholarly peer-reviewed journal articles. Please NO citations from Wikipedia.
Be clearly and well-written, concise, and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques.
Need 8-9 APA References Single space.
No Plagiarism please.

Vanessa Holiday v. City of Chattanooga, 206 F.3d 637 (6th Cir. 2000) Holiday brought suit against the City of Chattanooga under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Reason being is that the city refused to hire him as a police officer due to having the disease human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Vanessa Holiday v. City of Chattanooga, 206 F.3d 637 (6th Cir. 2000) Holiday brought suit against the City of Chattanooga under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Reason being is that the city refused to hire him as a police officer due to having the disease human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This virus causes Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). In 1993 Holiday applied for the City as a police officer. He passed all the exams and completed a physical agility test in 1993. The test was comprised of endurance, strength, jumping, running, and an obstacle course. Holiday had an interview with the City in 1994 and was offered a conditional offer of employment subject that Holiday passes a physical and psychological examination. It is required by Tennessee law that all applicants pass the physical that is given by a licensed physician. Holiday was seen by Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga in which this facility is contracted by the City. The City does not test for HIV or AIDS and there is no policy requiring that a person must test negative for HIV. During the physical exam Holiday voluntarily advised he has HIV and has been diagnosed with borderline anemic and was told by the physician that he passed the exam. However, once the exam was completed the officer called the City and advised them that Holiday did not pass the physical exam. In the report the physician stated that Holiday is not physically fit due to being anemic and having HIV and was not strong enough to withstand the severities of police work. The City informed Holiday that due to the physicians report they are withdrawing their conditional offer due to no passing the physical exam. The Sixth circuit court reversed summary in favor of the City in which they rejected the argument by the City which stated that Holiday was not fit for the job due to having HIV. The City relies on generalized decisions about the effect of HIV could have on job performance. The employer should conduct an analysis on the individual’s medical condition to see how it would impact their job performance, if any. The physician did not provide any evidence that Holiday had experienced physical weakness but only stated that Holiday was HIV positive and was no strong enough for the job. Holiday provided evidence that he was fit for the job and has served as a police officer without any issues in another agency after being denied by the City. Yes I agree with the conclusion that the City went against the Americans with Disabilities Act when they withdrew the conditional offer based off what the physician said. Holiday was voluntarily informed the physician he was HIV positive but has no effect on his job performance. The physician did not have a relevant statement as to why Holiday was no qualified for the job. There is nothing stated that the applicant has to test negative for HIV.

you can read about The Kent Test, created by Clarkisha Kent, building and expanding on the Bechdel Test.
Here is Kent’s post on Twitter about her test:
https://twitter.com/IWriteAllDay_/status/1236649354661892098 (Links to an external site.)
Here is the PDF of The Kent Test (also linked to in the Twitter post):
https://equalityforher.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/HR_The-Kent-Test.pdf (Links to an external site.)
The Kent Test is designed to help viewers evaluate whether a media text offers a high-quality or low-quality depiction of a woman of color/femme of color character. It works on a point system. So, watch any TV show (I recommend watching one whole episode of any series, though you can watch more than one episode for this, or apply the test to the entire series), and run the Kent Test on it, and write up the results and any observations/insights the test led you to have in a paper that is minimum 2 pages (double-spaced).
