Sonja A. Soehnel, J.D, Liability of operator of grocery store to invitee slipping on spilled liquid or semiliquid substance, 24 A.L.R 4th 696 (1983)

§ 19[a] No observation of spill by invitee—Contributory negligence

In the following cases there was no evidence that the stores were aware of the spillages before the accident occurred thus the court’s held that the customer’s contributory negligence was established. In Romeo v Jumbo Market (1967, 5th Dist) 247 Cal App 2d 817, 56 Cal Rptr 26, the court found in favour of the store when the defendant slipped and fell on a bottle of broken cheeries whilst not paying attend to where she was walking. There was substantial evidence to find contributory negligence on behalf of the customer.
In Munoz v Applebaum's Food Market, Inc. (1972) 293 Minn 433, 196 NW2d 921, a customer slipped and fell after walking in a puddle of water which was of such size that is was easy to see and avoid. The court was of the opinion that the defect was obvious and not hidden that the store owner had no duty towards the customer.
In H. E. Butt Grocery Co. v Johnson (1949, Tex Civ App) 226 SW2d 501,a customer sustained injuries after slipping and falling due to a spill occurring from a soft drink. The courts finally ruled in favour of the defendant.
In Fondell v Lucky Stores, Inc. (1978) 85 Wis 2d 220, 270 NW2d 205, a customer slipped and fell after a bottle of liquid cleaner became broken. Negligence was found on both sides , then the decision was reversed and the customer was found to be casually negligent.

What Did I learn?
I have learnt from the cases above that negligence can go both ways. But also that negligence can be at the door of the client. Our client slipped and fell on shampoo, she could be blamed for casual negligence for not looking where she is going and for being distracted. She did not pay due care and…...

Pa Letter they all worked closely with the patients, took the time to speak to them, listened to their complaints and symptoms, and consulted with the physicians regarding the patients’ course of treatment. I began to realize what an integral role a PA can have in both a hospital and private practice setting, and the relationships that they develop with their patients. There were many times that I witnessed the PA’s spending more time and being more involved in the care and treatment of the patients than the physician for some of their regular patients. During this time, several PA’s and physicians I had worked with suggested to me that I would make an excellent physicians assistant, and that was when I first became inspired to pursue a career as a PA. I further explored the field by spending time shadowing several PA’s in various fields, including plastic surgery, vascular surgery and OB/GYN. This has inspired me to take 36 credits of prerequisite courses in one year, while still working full time. I constantly strive to excel in what I do, and I commit myself fully to any endeavor that I become passionate about. I am going back to school after almost ten years since graduating college in order to pursue my dream of becoming a PA because I believe in what I am doing, and I am passionate about my goals. I look very forward to a rewarding profession that combines my interests in clinical science and helping others while working in a team environment....

...Stacy Mottola PHIL 201-D05 25NOV2013 Essay 1 Many question whether or not what we are seeing and are experiencing is real or just part of our imagination. This question is one that has been proposed for hundreds of years by philosophers like Descartes and Plato. How is it possible that a Greek philosopher, a philosopher from the seventeenth century and the movie The Matrix can be so similar? It is the intent of this paper to compare and contrast these questions in relation to the movie The Matrix. The main thing that stands out for each one of these is the question of the reality of the world in which we live. Our sense of being is called into question in each of these examples. Are our senses correct or are we simply living in a dream world that is made up? The Matrix is a computer system that has taken control of peoples everyday lives. Each individual is hooked up to this computer that generates a dream world where everyone believes that they are actually living a realistic life. In the Matrix Morpheus a leader of a group of people who have rebelled against this system come to the knowledge that they are not living real lives. In his recruitment Morpheus meets with Neo and attempts to show him the truth. Learning this Neo sees that what you can see, touch and feel are not exactly real, their senses have betrayed them. In the excerpt from Descartes he makes several statements which also question the reality in which our perceptions believe we are......

CARY PSY/201 October 03, 2013 Jennifer Baker Social Psychology Paper There were several factors that contributed to Sarah’s attitude in regards to her curfew. Some of these were motivation, compliance and conformity, Normative and Informational Social Influence. Other factors that affected Sarah’s behavior, action and thoughts may include persuasion and peer-pressure. Some of the ways that Sarah displayed cognitive dissonance were disobeying curfew, going to a party, and unnecessary worry. When Sarah decided to go to the party she displayed conformity in order to go along (comply) and fit in with a popular group from school. Sarah felt a need to be accepted by a new group because she was in a new social environment and wants to be accepted and popular in the group also. Sarah may have fears of meeting new people and being in a new environment therefore she conform to a large group of people which is a difficult task. Sarah is also experiencing “incongruous” emotions, actions and behaviors at this time which is not “normal” for her. Sarah begins to avoid her curfew time, and disobey the rules and guidelines her parents had set for her previously, by agreeing to go to the party and being late. She also decides that being accepted and popular by the new group has given her some self satisfaction and happy feelings as well as gained acceptance......

You think and feel as if your life has no meaning.   Although your family is there to support you, you wonder could ending your life be the answer? Well in all reality this isn’t something anyone needs to imagine. This is a real situation for many, many people. These people should be able to make their own choices and have control of their own lives.ThesisWhat’s life without the quality of life?Now let's take a look and examine 3 reasons why Physician Assistant suicide should be legalized. PAS is about giving people the right to choose how they want to live and die, saves money in medical bills, and it also stops the person from having a bad quality of life.Transition to body of speech :BODYA. Main-point 1: Everyone has the right to choose how they want to live and die.i. Supporting details:First of all, deciding if you want to be alive or not is a personal decision. Neither the doctors nor the government has the power to decide if you should live or not. Since it is not their life and they are not in your situation, they cannot make that kind of decision for you. It might sound like suicide, but again, that is our problem, not theirs.

Communication is very effective because not only you have to communicate with the person you supporting but also their family and friends as well as your work colleagues in the work place 3. It is important to observe an individual’s reactions when communicating with them so that any problems can be identified and can be dealt with in an effective way. Communicating with an individual in a different way is also an effective way such as their facial expressions, body language or their gestures. 4. It is important to finding out an individuals communication and language needs, wishes and preferences because every individual may not communicate the same and the effective way to communicate with an individual other than my work colleagues are their family and friends as well as others who have worked with the individual. 5. Different ways of communicating with an individual such as sign languages, the individual may not be able to hear or if an individual is wearing a hearing aid is not working or fitted properly; communicating with the individual using flash cards, drawing or in writing if the individual has a learning or physical disability such as dementia. 6.

Philosophy 201

...Would You Rather Live in Ignorant Bliss or the Horrible Truth? Liberty University Online Phil 201: Fall Semester 2014 Most of us have watched the movie, “The Matrix.” What some people might not know is that this is not a new concept. There have been philosophers, namely Plato and Descartes, who have been pondering concepts like this, way before the movie was released. Is there a way to prove that the world we live in is real, and not just some sort of dream? Can we trust the five senses that we depend on so much? How can we be sure that how we live, where we live, and what we live for is real? Let’s explore. The Matrix talks about how we are all being deceived in this world, being hooked up to brain stimulating cable that produces the lives we know in our minds. Descartes played with the same question but found a different solution. “From this foundational idea, Descartes went on to argue for the existence of God, who would not, due to his goodness, allow us to be continually deceived by an evil demon.” (Dew, p.152) What I got from Descartes’ words was; what would be the point? God created us, he loves us; He is good, so why would he want to deceive us for our entire lives, what is the point? Plato’s concept is very similar to the creation of The Matrix. Through a dialogue, he was questioning the fact of reality. Stating that what if we were all just standing in one spot, forced to look in only one direction, the only things we saw were objects......

...Social Psychology Paper Kelly Skiver PSY/201 February 23, 2014 Beth Pepmiller Social Psychology Paper 1. What factors contributed towards Sarah’s attitude regarding her curfew and how did these factors contribute? In the social psychology scenario a girl named Sarah goes out with new friends to a party and stays out past her curfew. There were many factors that contributed to Sarah’s attitude about her curfew. Her new friends had just invited her to go to a party. In the scenario it said that Sarah had never been to a party before, and that she also wanted her new friends to continue to invite her out places with them. All these factors contributed to Sarah breaking her curfew and going to the party with her new friends. 2. In what ways did Sarah display cognitive dissonance? Throughout the scenario Sarah’s actions displayed cognitive dissonance. The main example of this was her actually going to the party with her friends. She thought it over in the scenario and knew breaking her curfew was the wrong thing to do yet still went out to the party. 3. In what situations did Sarah conform to her peers’ beliefs, and how? What are some possible reasons that Sarah did this? There were many ways that Sarah conformed to her new friends beliefs. Staying out was the new friends idea. Going to the party is something she really wanted to do and her new friends made it seem really fun and important to do. At the end of the night she left with her friends also...

I have only 2 generations in my household but it is interesting that maybe in the future I would have a child of my own then he or she would be considered a 3rd generation and I would like to see how the different cohorts would affect the child. The personality that they would have due to the diverse generation living under the same roof. When I was a toddler I did reside in my grandmother house in Grand Cayman, and I realize how much it helped me develop to the woman I am today. In my case I had my grandparents, aunts and my mother there to teach and guide me during my younger years. David thinks that he should not be considering any particular theoretical perspective either all wrong or all right. I agree with his thought about considering a particular perspective as all theoretical perspective have supporting evidence that suggests that it will guide David to better the development of Glenn around is current surroundings.

In order to describe the center of the histogram you should use the Median and IQR because the histogram is slightly skewed. The median shows that the 50th percentile should get above or below 7 hours of sleep. The IQR spans only, meaning that the middle 50% get between 6-7 hours of sleep. 2 Major with most students in bold is “Accounting” with a count of 58 3A.) The two categorical variables that I used were “Sex” and “Drunk Driving B.) I think that there would be an association between these two variables because I believe that gender plays a role in the probability of a person who decides to get behind the wheel while drunk. Also, I expect to see a higher association with males being more likely to drive drunk, compared to females being less likely to drive drunk. C.)Contingency Table and Mosaic Plot 3D.) After I created the mosaic plot, it is clear that it does support the plausibility of an association because the blocks do not line up and there is a low p-value. The null states there is no association, therefore we will reject the null due to the low p-value. My mosaic plot shows that 36% of the sample population has driven drunk, 15% being females and 21% being males. After analyzing the statistics the plot matches my expectations. 4A.) I......

...Paola G. Maceda BSIT 201 INTRO ARTS AUTOBIOGRAPHY Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci Born on April 15, 1452, in Vinci, Italy, Leonardo da Vinci was the epitome of a “Renaissance man.” Possessor of a curious mind and keen intellect, da Vinci studied the laws of science and nature, which greatly informed his work as a painter, sculptor, architect, inventor, military engineer and draftsman. His ideas and body of work—which includes "Virgin of the Rocks," "The Last Supper" and "Mona Lisa"—have influenced countless artists and made da Vinci a leading light of the Italian Renaissance. Leonardo was, and is, renowned primarily as a painter. Among his works, the Mona Lisa is the most famous and most parodied portrait and The Last Supper the most reproduced religious painting of all time, with their fame approached only by Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam. Leonardo died at Clos Lucé, France, on May 2, 1519. François I had become a close friend. Vasari records that the King held Leonardo's head in his arms as he died, although this story, beloved by the French and portrayed in romantic paintings by Ingres, Ménageot and other French artists, may be legend rather than fact. Da Vinci has been called a genius and the archetypal Renaissance man. His talents inarguably extended far beyond his artistic works. Like many leaders of Renaissance humanism, he did not see a divide between science and art. STYLE OF PAINTING da Vinci’s Painting Technique Throughout his years (1452-1519),...
