Leadership

The main role of a leader in nursing is to offer inspiration to other people in the health facility, to make sure that they work together to achieve the organizational goals, like quality healthcare. Among the qualities that a successful nursing leader ought to have includes; integrity, courage, intuitiveness, as well as the capability to hold on the strain. To meet the organizational goals, the nursing leader ought to be a critical thinker, come up with goals, and to be a good communicator. One of the tasks of a nursing leader is to make sure that they do away with all the moral constrains, which hinder delivery of quality services. At the Billings Clinic, the major moral challenge is poor treatment of new employees. This paper will look at this moral challenge, its consequences, my role of a nursing leader in addressing it, as well as how my leadership style affect the handling of the dilemma (Patterson, & Krouse, 2015).

Judaism and Christianism

JudaismandChristianism

 

Judaism and Christianity are Abrahamic religions with same origins but varying practices, teachings, and beliefs. Hebrew Bible called, “Tanakh” contains Judaism ethics and principles whereas “The Holy Bible” contains Christianity principles. Teachings and beliefs from Judaism and Christianity vary in marriage and role played by women in the society. The concept of marriage originates from creation story narrated in Genesis for both sacred texts. During creation, God created Adam to look after the Garden of Eden. Later on, he created a woman called Eva from Adam’s flesh to act as a helper. Adam was pleased with Eva and united together in marriage as the first family. Marriage in both religions emerges from different perspectives such as divorce and remarriage, celibacy, the role of women in matrimony, polygamy or monogamy and intermarriage.

Interventions Aimed at Improving Media Literacy

For the last 25 years, the world has experienced an increased awareness of the need to educate the population about media content through research, curricula development, and other strategies. However, many people’s understanding of the tenets of media literacy is vague. Consequently, a limited number of valid concrete interventions for improving media literacy have been proposed and researched. This paper reviews two separate research studies that examined the effectiveness of planned teaching-learning intervention for school-going adolescents and the effectiveness of the intervention on their media literacy.

 This video by CBS is a feature story on the plight of privacy on the internet. It is brought out as a feature story documenting how Payne, a public high school English teacher from Georgia was forced to resign from her job as a teacher because of the images she posted on her Facebook. Her timeline featured images of her holding a mug of beer and several other similar images. What surprised her the most was the fact that she had already made her Facebook account private. Currently, she is fighting to get her job back citing some invasion of her private life unfairly used to force her out of her job. The video also gives an insight of how data mining has become a fast growing industry. Companies are selling personal data to companies so that they can specifically target their desired market using the information. It shows how data is mined despite people thinking that they have set their online activities to private. This article is particularly important to my topic since it clearly shows that the internet is never private. It also shows some of the repercussions of posting about our life on the internet.
