... Eziaku Oliver Grand Canyon University Baccalaureate Degree Nursing/Associate Degree Nursing: Difference in Competencies November 25 2012 Nurses prepared at the baccalaureate degree level are more competent than those prepared at the associate degree level. As the saying goes knowledge is power, Nurses prepared at baccalaureate degree level have more knowledge, they spend more time in school studying, conducting research, they think deeper, they apply critical thinking skills in patient care and the end result is positive outcome. According to Grand Canyon university college of nursing, preparing nurses at the baccalaureate degree level equipped the nurse for the challenges facing nursing profession with the increase in changes in healthcare system, this also empowers their professionalism , ethical decision making, accountability, critical thinking skills and effective communicating skills. . According to American Association of Colleges of Nursing although Nurses prepared at the baccalaureate degree level and those prepared at the associate degree level have the same passing rate that still does not mean that they deliver the same quality of care when it comes to patient care.

...with the clouds,” I told my mother, squeezing her hand and squinting at the temperamental sky. It was my first metaphor, although I was unaware of it at the time; I was three years old. Even before I could read, I harbored a natural affinity for the English language, picking up new words easily and using them in unexpected ways. I would string them together like beads on a necklace, carefully selecting and rearranging them for the most ear-pleasing sentence. For me, words were more than a way to communicate - they were a form of art. As I delved into the written word I began to recognize writing as a powerful tool for expression. I turned to poetry and short stories to capture childhood moments, expanding my vocabulary and becoming skilled at transferring raw emotions and ideas onto paper. My parents encouraged me to make frequent trips to the library, and I often staggered home beneath the weight of a pile of novels. When I entered high school as a published author and poet, my writing continued to mature. Although I still marveled at the versatility of language, I now wielded my pen with a more defined sense of purpose. I understood that words could be used for more than the aesthetic appeal that got me through my English essays. They could be used to educate, to inform, and to spread awareness. By junior year, I had transitioned to journalistic writing, and then to more specialized exposition for my advanced science and history classes. I found myself......

...constitutes a "word" involves determining where one word ends and another word begins—in other words, identifying word boundaries. There are several ways to determine where the word boundaries of spoken language should be placed: Potential pause: A speaker is told to repeat a given sentence slowly, allowing for pauses. The speaker will tend to insert pauses at the word boundaries. However, this method is not foolproof: the speaker could easily break up polysyllabic words, or fail to separate two or more closely related words. Indivisibility: A speaker is told to say a sentence out loud, and then is told to say the sentence again with extra words added to it. Thus, I have lived in this village for ten years might become My family and I have lived in this little village for about ten or so years. These extra words will tend to be added in the word boundaries of the original sentence. However, some languages have infixes, which are put inside a word. Similarly, some have separable affixes; in the German sentence "Ich komme gut zu Hause an", the verb ankommen is separated. Phonetic boundaries: Some languages have particular rules of pronunciation that make it easy to spot where a word boundary should be. For example, in a language that regularly stresses the last syllable of a word, a word boundary is likely to fall after each stressed syllable. Another example can be seen in a language that has vowel harmony (like Turkish):[5] the vowels within a given word......

He aims to help the public understand those ideas that until now have only been studied by linguists so that their distorted perception of language may be altered. He divides the book into three main sections, going from a general description of basic principles, to specific examples of how these principles apply to everyday language, with an introduction that paints a clear picture of why this book is an important read. With slyly injected humor, McWhorter is able to take difficult linguistic concepts and present them in a way that provides a delightful read for all audiences. Part one centers on one specific idea: that language change is not decay. McWhorter spends many pages trying to convince the reader that changes in language are natural and an expected part of the history of every language in the world. He uses specific examples from English so that even someone with no background in linguistics can understand the points he is trying to get across. He delves a little bit into history to show how and why different dialects arise, and why there is no such thing as a “bad grammar.” McWhorter then goes on to explain how languages mix together and how this also brings about change. He tries to illustrate how modern Standard English came to be what it is from a mixture of many languages......

BY ED M. WOOD When I left university I felt like I was bursting through a set of saloon swing doors, arms loaded with qualifications about to hold up the professional world until they handed over the job of my dreams. I think many graduates feel like this, and this misplaced confidence compounds the disappointment when the professional world shrugs its collective shoulders. My reaction to this disappointment was to turn my back on the opportunity vacuum and stock up on soft skills. I googled for TEFL courses in Spain, found a charming townlet called Zamora in Castilla y Leon and booked myself a one-way ticket. My Spanish education, albeit informal, started almost as soon as we touched down. I was tasked with navigating my way across Madrid weighed down by my backpack and an oppressive, immovable mid-summer mugginess. Your relationship with new words is shaped to some extent by the context in which you learn them. Whenever I hear words like estación de trenes (train station), vía (track) and billete (ticket), images of hulking, dusty mazes of misinformation arise in bubbles of residual dread. I......

Essay the Use of Swear Words in the English Language Are Adolescents More Likely to Use Swear Words in Their Speech? Essay the Use of Swear Words in the English Language Are Adolescents More Likely to Use Swear Words in Their Speech?

...of both good and bad words, swear words. Swear words are proven to be an inevitable part of linguistics yet often looked upon as bad manners especially if they are being uttered by teenagers, who adults refer to as irresponsible when it comes to their everyday use of language (Eckert, 2004, p. 8). However, according to Eckert (2004), this should be seen as nothing more than adolescents’ way of interpreting and maintaining social interactions and norms in a community as our choice of linguistic resources simultaneously signals how we behave, where we are from and who we choose to spend our time with (p. 9). Linguists are frequently faced with the belief that certain speakers, adolescents in particular, have an illogical parlance. However, it can clearly be debated whether or not these judgments have any deeper value as they are commonly based on selective observations and biased judgments of what those observations mean. This essay aims to deal with those beliefs by examining whether or not adolescents are more likely to use swear words in their speech. Material The primary material in this essay is based on information retrieved from the British National Corpus. British National Corpus, often referred to as BNC, is a 100 million-word collection of samples of written and spoken British English, gathered during the later part of the 20th century (The British National Corpus, 1992). The material that is being examined in this essay consists of swear words limited to the......

Year 1000

...Having the Faith to Survive The life of an English peasant around the year 1,000 proved to be quite laborious. Thanks to Sir Robert Cotton, authors Danziger and Lacey were able to tell us how the drawings of the Julius Work Calendar portrayed these individuals. The world was a quaint and quiet place in that time, with a total population of only one million people. “The year 1,000 was an empty world, with much more room to stretch out and breath.” There were three groups of citizens that were spread over the country side. These included workers, fighters and those that prayed for everyone. It seemed somewhat harmonious. The peasants worked for their Lords who took care of them. It was a mundane, but give and take society. “Life was short”. The expected life span was no more than fifty years. A boy of twelve was old enough to give allegiance to the King and a girl often married in her early teenage years. Through excavation, they have found their bones and surprisingly they did not differ much from us. They were the same height and their brains were the same size as ours. It seems to me that they were probably much stronger and smarter because everything had to be learned and preservation of sanity and health had to come from themselves. The Julius Work Calendar shows us that they were very much like us in that they lived by a schedule and got caught up in juggling time. It was a bit more structured for them though. They did......
