Review the Resources for this module and consider the principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
Reflect on your experiences, observations, and/or clinical practices from the last 5 years and think about how pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic factors altered his or her anticipated response to a drug.
Consider factors that might have influenced the patient’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes, such as genetics (including pharmacogenetics), gender, ethnicity, age, behavior, and/or possible pathophysiological changes due to disease.
Think about a personalized plan of care based on these influencing factors and patient history with GAD.

Write about is the NAACP.


The Topic I chose to write about is the NAACP. Submit a document to your Parabolic mentor with the following information:

A paragraph introducing the client, including the organization’s mission statement or purpose (in your own words); client’s location (city, state, country); why you selected this client; how this project fits with your professional interests; and the link to the organization’s website (if they don’t have a website, you can post a link to their social media account or a news article that explains the organization’s purpose). This should be around a page; it’s meant to provide your mentor with just enough information to give you any guidance, and also to ascertain whether there is any reason not to go with this client.

What is the Average years of education for Group 3 (SWAT Officers)?

Steps for analysis in Excel:

Cut and paste the data from the table above into Microsoft Excel.
Click the Data tab and then the Data Analysis button to open the statistical analysis dialogue box.
Choose “ANOVA: Single Factor” as the type of analysis.
Click into the input range box, and then highlight all of the data (to include the headers) in the Group 1, Group 2, and Group 3 columns.
Click the Labels in First Row box to ensure Excel does not try to analyze the column headers as data.
Click the New Worksheet Ply button so that Excel spits the data output into a new worksheet.
Click “OK” to run the analysis.
Step 2: Answer the following questions using the analysis results that you generated:

What is the average years of education for Group 1 (Narcotics Investigators)?
What is the Average years of education for Group 3 (SWAT Officers)?
What is the p-value for your ANOVA model? Is the p-value greater than or less than 0.05?
Do you reject or accept the null hypothesis that states, “There is no difference between the groups in years of education.”
Why did you reject or accept the null hypothesis?
Which group, on average, has the most years of education?

Discuss the pros and cons of adopting this technology.


One of the areas of concern to Mr. Magone and the senior leadership of Healing Hands Hospital is the integration and adoption of information technology and systems that would be needed if the hospital consolidated with a large health system or added more outpatient services or expanded into telemedicine. As a member of the Task Force support team, you have been asked to research and discuss current and future advances and issues related to information technology in healthcare. This may include integration concerns with the Healing Hands Hospital’s current electronic health record system (EHRs), new models of decision support systems, and telemedicine with wearable tracking and smartphone linked devices.

Include the following information in your paper:

Identify 1 major technological trend (such as data analytics, decision support systems, telemedicine, or tracking devices) in health care that could be adopted by Healing Hands Hospital.

Discuss the pros and cons of adopting this technology.

Please submit your assignment.

Describe the appearance of a dry owl pellet.

Owl pellets are the undigested remains of prey ingested by an owl.  The owl swallows its prey whole, and during the process of digestion, the soft parts of the prey are dissolved and passed on to the intestine for absorption.  The hard, non-digestible parts-bones, teeth, fur, feathers, and chitonous remains of insects are compressed in the gizzard and passed on to the proventriculus where the pellet remains until it is expelled.  These pellets are not eliminated as feces, but are regurgitated through the mouth.
Pellets are not found exclusively within the owl families.  There are many species of birds known to regurgitate pellets; hawks, eagles, kites, harriers, falcons, and even robins are some of the more familiar ones.  Out of all types of pellet ejectors, the efficiency of the process is probably as high in owls as in any other bird.
The Common Barn Owl feeds in early morning and early evening and will usually produce one to two pellets per day.  Glossy black when fresh, the pellet remains smooth and dark in color when dry.  These pellets can provide valuable information pertaining to the diet of owls.  By studying the contents of owl pellets, one may discover seasonal, regional, and habitat differences and even differences in individual tastes between owls.  Also, pellets can be used to effectively illustrate the nature of food chains, to demonstrate the role of avian predators within the ecosystem, and to provide information about the presence and relative abundance of animals in a particular area.  As an educational tool, pellets can also be used to introduce students to skeletal anatomy and to teach others how to identify and animal by its skull and jawbones.
The pellets in this Pak are from one of the two owl families, Tytonidae or Strigidae.  Each pellet has been fumigated to eliminate the presence of any insects and then individually wrapped for preservation.  Unless otherwise stated, the pellets in this Pak are from the family Tytonidae and more specifically, the Common Barn Owl (Tyto alba).
1.              To successfully extract prey bones from a barn owl pellet.
2.              To explain how pellets are made and how they can be used to do a prey study.
3.              To label and arrange bones on a chart.
4.              To explain the role of owls in a food web.

When the site loads, be sure to read the sections labelled Pellet Directions and Pellet Directions.
Click on the pellet to remove the fur.  Fur will automatically move to a pile in the corner.
Click on the bones and drag them to the skeleton.  Match the bones correctly and they will snap in place.
Note: Be sure to have the sound on and turned up so you can hear it
At any time, you can click on the label button to turn the labels on or off.
When you have correctly matched you will have a chance to download a certificate that you can print.
In order to get credit for your dissection, you must save your certificate and upload it to the Dropbox.

Owl Pellet Dissection


Answer the following questions from the introduction information.

What are owl pellets?

What happens to the soft parts of the prey?

What is the purpose of the gizzard in the owl pellet formation?

Where does the pellet remain until it is expelled?

These pellets are not eliminated as _________________, but are regurgitated through the ___________________.
List 6 other birds that are known to regurgitate pellets.

Of all the birds that are pellet ejectors, which type of bird is probably the most efficient at this process?

How many pellets does the common barn owl produce per day?

What color are the pellets when fresh?

Describe the appearance of a dry owl pellet.

The pellets are from what owl family?

Why are the pellets fumigated?

How do food webs and food chains differ?

Why does the number of organisms decrease as you move up the pyramid level?

In terms of energy flow in an ecosystem, why is the amount of energy passed from one trophic level to the next so small?  Since we know energy cannot be destroyed, account for the loss of energy that occurs between the prey and the owl.
