Transcript: This type of communication is good between home and school because you can instantly find out if their is a problem or if the teacher just wants to get in contact with you. No matter were you are or what type of schedule you have you can always receive them anywhere if you have electronic devices. Keep an Open Communication E mails With classroom website parents can also keep in contact with the teachers. They also allow the parent to see what important assignments need to be done or if there are new things that are happening not only in the classroom but in the school as well. "Doing so will keep the lines of communication open and remind parents that your school cares about their child."(Wood, 2011). Personally I feel this is the best way to communicate. Like all the other forms of communication you know if something is going on or if the teacher is just checking in. It's an easy way for parents to stay engaged because everybody has a phone so I feel that thi stype of communication is the easiest. Just while on the phone with one another make sure you respect the parents opinion and input because it is their child. Having a healthy communication between home and school is very important for the child to be sccessful academically and personaly. "When school leaders, teachers, and other school staff respect parents* and share information with them openly and frequently, parents are more likely to trust and work with the school to support their child’s learning."(Wood, 2011). It's important for parents to know what's happening with their child at school. The children whose parents are engaged with school I feel shows their children that they can trust what they learn in school will be benefit them academically. When parents are engaged with teachers it helps motivate students to try their best in school. Improving Communication Between Home and School References Classroom Websites Faculty Presentation Phone Calls Wood, C. (2011). School-Home Communication Strategies. Having technology being used as a tool for communication with parents is very important for the children’s lives because it helps form long lasting bonds. When parents are and stay involved with their academics they know exactly what is happening with their children, and the same goes for the teachers. Involved parents know if they are failing behind or on track, their strengths and weaknesses, behavior in the classroom and etc. because the teachers inform them they can come up with a plan to get the children back on track if need be. Technology and parent/teacher communication have gone hand in hand over the years. As technology has progressed so has parent/teacher communication. Technology grows everyday now we have Facebook, blogs, classroom websites and on top of emails, texts, and calls which these are all used to communicate more effectively. As technology advances so will form of communication. The parents can see what their children are learning in class which helps them to stay engaged, the students can talk to one another if they have questions as well as talk to the teacher instead waiting for the next day. Ways To Communicate By Using Technology

As a night and weekend student, the professors understand the demands that we have. What do you like about BW? Role Strain IMPORTANCE OF FACULTY In addition to academic responsibilities, non-traditional students also must devote time and energy to several other commitments Even though faculty members may not always be aware of it, their interactions can have a far-reaching influence on their students. Faculty member–student relations are a strong motivator and indicator of learning (Christensen & Menzel, 1998). In particular,Decker, Dona, and Christenson (2007) note that the student–faculty member relationship is more important in predicting students’ social–emotional functioning than their academic performance. -Instructors are very creative and get students involved with group projects, interactive assignments, and other non-traditional ways of learning. -I've had some outstanding professors that really understand the unique needs of Adult Students and the challenges we face balancing family, career, and school-life. They're great! DEFINITION OF NON-TRADITIONAL STUDENTS STUDENT RESPONSES VETERAN STUDENTS OUTSIDE OBLIGATIONS AND OBSTACLES -I love the passion of the Professors in ensuring students learn. I love the background and experience that the Professors have in their fields. Keys to Achievement TECHNIQUES

Transcript: "Global warming is a buildup of six types of heat-trapping gases in the Earth's atmosphere." (Greenblatt 2) "These gases are called 'greenhouse' gases because they act as a greenhouse by retaining the sun's heat in Earth's atmosphere." (Greenblatt 2) Interviews Do Average Citizens Understand What Global Warming Is? Q5: Do you believe that the government is doing anything to fix global warming? L: "No. The government holds a COMP Conference each year to discuss the matter, but nothing has been done about it. The US has stopped the progress on global warming and even persuaded New Zealand and Canada to pull out of the Kyoto Protocol, which is ending this year after 15 years." C: "They're researching it." The Kyoto Protocol (1997) Global Warming #17 Interviews Con't Q2: Do you believe global warming is a major issue? L: "Yes." C: "No" Q4: Do you think anything should be done about global warming? L: "Yes. We need to do two things: 1.) Limit the amount of carbon emissions into the air. This can be done by using renewable energy, using more effective means of transportation, and stop the burning of fossil fuels. 2.) We need to be prepared for higher temperatures. Stronger and more rich countries should offer aid to poorer countries that will be in need at times of disasters." C: "No. Things are already being done to fix it and no more should be done." Q6: The US is having nothing to do with global warming because they believe it will inhibit economic growth, is there another solution? L: "Yes. We must take it very very seriously. There has been an increase in hurricanes, drought, forest fires, and other natural disasters. We need to cut carbon emissions by stopping overusing or wasting products we already have, weatherizing homes with new doors, windows, and insulation, increasing mass public transportation, changing cars to electric, and moving our electric source closer to home. This will also increase job opportunities in the US." C: "Yes. Cut out all unnecessary travels, learn what your carbon footprint is, live green, lower heating, and support nuclear power." What is Global Warming? Q3: Have you noticed any changes that could be a result of global warming? L: " Yes. The average temperatures have increased, as well as the intensity of natural disasters. Also, the polar ice caps and glaciers are melting at an incredible rate." C: "The summers have gotten hotter, storms are coming more often and are more sever, et al." Cooper, M. (2001, January 26).

Gale. In 1997, industrialized nations from all over the world met in Kyoto, Japan to discuss how they could reduce the amount of green house gases in the air. It was agreed that each nation would reduce their green house gas emissions by 5% below 1990 levels. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said "I was one of the many Americans outraged when my country would not sign the Kyoto Protocol. The federal government dropped the ball on a critical environmental issue." Bibliography Global warming is indeed a problem that should be taken very seriously. It is man- made, therefore average people should focus on fixing it. Interviews Con't (Again) Conclusion Q1: Can you please explain to me what global warming is? L: "The temperature of the Earth is being raised by green house gases. Chemicals are released into the air, the most abundant being carbon dioxide and methane, and get trapped in the atmosphere; this allows more heat to be trapped. However, certain levels do bounce back out. The levels of carbon dioxide has increased by 145 parts per million in the past few years. Global warming is definitely caused by people through the use of fossil fuels." C: "The average temperature of the earth is increasing." By: Azure Decker
Transcript: Legal, Ethical and Professional Issues in Behavioral Healthcare MHS 4703 University of South Florida Paul G. Stiles Position Presentation By: Yasmeen Qandil Birth Control Pills Should it be OTC? YES! There is no risk of overdose Easily accessible Lowers the rate of abortion What Are The Benefits of OTC Birth Control Pills? Shares the same ingredients as OTC emergency contraceptives but a lower dosage Of 135 countries, 96 countries have OTC birth control access. Other OTC drugs carry more serious risks and side effects No Risk of Overdose Birth control would become easier to obtain by teens, immigrants, and uninsured women It is less complicated to take a trip to the drug store than to go to the doctor and wait for a prescription. It would eliminate 3rd party insurance companies ultimately reducing the cost of the drug Easily Accessible OTC birth control lowers the risk of unwanted pregnancies Researchers found that if women were able to obtain oral contraceptives without a prescription as a covered health insurance benefit, there would be an 11 to 21 percent increase in the number of women using the Pill. As a result, the rate of accidental pregnancies in the U.S. would decrease by 7 to 25 percent. Easier access to birth control could ultimately put an end to abortion restrictive laws. Lowers Abortion Rate It is not covered by insurance There is a decrease in privacy It increases the use of hormonal drugs Disadvantages to OTC Birth Control Bringing birth control to the shelves of drug stores would mean that women would have to pay out of pocket. It would no longer be free for those with insurance companies that cover the full cost Not Covered By Insurance The cost of birth control would decrease OTC birth control would be a lot less expensive to those who are already uninsured. Affordability is Access Act (ensures otc birth control pills are covered without cost sharing and without requiring a prescription) HOWEVER... Purchases would become public and anyone would be able to see some one check out with birth control Patient-Doctor confidentiality Decrease In Privacy Methods of birth control such as condoms and emergency contraceptives are already over the counter However, Making Birth control pills over the counter would increase the use of hormonal drugs If you are not knowledgeable about what your body needs, you may be damaging it Increase Use of Hormonal Drugs However Birth control is safe to use Women are responsible and knowledgeable enough to care for Birth control should be over the counter because: There is no risk of overdose It would become easily accessible It lowers the abortion rate Conclusion
