Cardiovascular System

In this assignment I will be talking about the cardiovascular system and what the structures and functions of the body parts are. The cardiovascular system is powered by the main organ: the heart. The heart allows blood to be pumped around the body, supplying oxygen to the working muscles. The blood not only supplies oxygen but nutrients, hormones and cellular waste too.
The heart
The heart is a hard working organ that is said to be roughly the same size as your fist. It pumps bloody around the body, which supplies oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, it also helps remove carbon dioxide and other wastes. It is important the tissue gets a constant supply of nutrients because it keeps it active otherwise they will die. There are four main chambers to the heart, two that are the upper chambers and the other two are the lower ones these are called the atria and the ventricles. The left atrium and the left ventricle make up the left side of the heart and the same goes for the right side, these are separated by a wall of muscle also known as the septum. The heart is covered by a double-walled sac called the pericardium, this protects the heart.
There are two pathways in which the blood travels to different organs depending on what pathway it is. The pulmonary circuit the blood leaves the right ventricle of the heart and travels to the lungs, this then returns as oxygenated blood to the left atrium pf the heart, this all happens via the pulmonary vein. The second pathway is the systemic circuit, this leaves the left ventricle to the aorta, this enters the arteries and capillaries, and this supplies the tissue with oxygen. The blood returns via the veins and back into the heart’s right atrium. The arteries carry the bloody away from the heart, these are always oxygenated apart from the pulmonary artery, if any of these arteries were to get…...

A single person is also more likely to conform to feel part of a group of people than two or more people. The strength of the influence as well as the immediacy and the number of sources of influences are also factors of conformity according to THE SOCIAL IMPACT THEORY.

...Jazmin Ramirez PSP 202 Post 1 Public service consists of three different forms: social service, social action and social policy. In the article, 3 Kinds of Public Service Work: Service, Action, Policy, the author states social service "involves working directly with individuals to help improve their lives" as for social action, it does the same except it helps through organizing communities which will create change.  Social policy, on the other hand, consists of working for systematic change using the "top down" strategy. Going in depth, social service helps individuals and families deal with emotional, social, physical, and economic problems.  It can be done in public agencies, nonprofit organizations, as well as private corporations.  In order to serve through the lenses of social service one must have skills in listening, teaching, and counseling. Social action can be viewed as community organizing. "The goal of organizing is to empower and develop local community leadership and to help build a community's capacity to meet its own needs." Some skills needed for social action are interpersonal skills, being able to work with different kinds of people, communication skills, persuasion and organizational skills. Social policy can be done in the public and/or government sector. Although these different forms of public service have different approaches they still have the same outcome, social change. In chapter two, Distinguishing Features of Organizations, the......

Green Paper A green paper is a document about a proposed change in the law which is distributed to interested parties to gather their views on the change and open up a period of consultation and debate. This debate might take the form of public meetings, specialist consultation meetings or open enquiries. White Paper These contain a set of formal proposals on the new law or policy. White papers are the drafts of what will become known as bills in later stages of development. Representation from outside government Ways in which the new public policy can be influenced from outside government include: • Letters to MPs • seeing an MP in their surgery • taking into account the views of the opposition. Bills All potential statutes begin life as a bill. A bill is a proposal for a piece of legislation. There are three kinds: • Public bill • Private bill • Private members bill.

...sentence. The bad thing about this law is that people will not change their minds about women working as the men would have seen the females to be at home cooking dinners, doing housework and childcare not putting out fires and the effect this may have is it will be open to law suits for not letting women into the fire service. For the fire service they put in inspectors who are aware of EO (equal opportunities) are being used and they done this to make sure that the fire service are following the polices they have set out. The effect this might have is that on an inspection a fire department are found out for not following the polices, if they do not follow the polices they will be breaking the law and will be procured and sent to prison. Also an effect it will have on the fire service would be moral. The council is for the whole county such as Kent and they different responsibilities which include education, public transport, emergency planning, highway and the traffic, libraries, planning and development, refuse disposal, social services and trading standards with different departments for each responsibility. One of the council’s responsibilities is the public transport. The good thing about this is buses are more environmental friendly and healthy for the world and as there will be less cars on the road it will create less pollutions in the air and it will create more jobs as the bus company will need people to driving all of the buses, ticket inspectors, people at......

...P6- Explain the main considerations when planning and preparing for major incidents M4- Explain the role of the organisations involved in planning for major incidents The purpose of emergency planning is to provide an integrated response to major incidents with a view to bringing about a successful end to an incident. Planning and preparation for emergencies and possible major incidents forms a large part of the work of the emergency services and other public services. Emergency plans are drawn up so that, in the event of a major incident, the public services can respond efficiently because they are prepared for it. In this assignment I will be explaining the main considerations when planning and preparing for major incidents and also the role of the organisations involved in planning for major incidents. When planning for an emergency personnel should; * Know their roles- This means that the person knows what they are required to do * Be competent to carry out the task- This means they are able to carry out their job efficiently and with little guidance. * Have access to resources- They have all the equipment they need to be able to do their job. * Have confidence in other responders- This means that everyone in the team has confidence that everyone in the team is competent at their role. When emergency planning is undertaken by category 1 responders, a great deal of thought is given to identifying possible risks. A risk is a hazard or threat that could......

...In the entirety of this essay, I will be discussing how my commitment to public service has shaped and helped cultivate skills that have proven valuable in the workplace. The notion that people are motivated to work in the public service field as a result of a desire to help others and make a positive impact on their community is a long-standing one. I view my work as strengthening my community; maintaining the highest levels of commitment and competency are crucial to excelling in the public service position. Given that many people are attracted to public service work by their motivation to serve and make a positive difference in other’s lives, it is essential that what is referred to as the “line of sight” between values and the task they are required to fulfill in the organization is not lost while clearly showing all employees how their contribution matters to the overall objectives of the organization is critical to maintaining their sense of motivation. As a government liaison volunteer, we partner with local government agencies and officials to get the job done. Our volunteers act as the “face of the red cross” to our government partners, but also serve as the primary communication channel during disaster response operations. As such, I am committed to tirelessly nurturing and strengthening relationships with our government partners and the public in which I serve. Disaster does not wait for everyone to be prepared, it strikes without warning, with this in mind,...

...producing vital documents. If you are good with your time management you become a reliable and useful member of the team by regularly completing tasks within the given time. Also, during our drill weeks we showed time management by making sure we were in correct kit before the lesson if we had a previous lesson which potentially could make us late. Attitude- A positive for a having good attitude within the UPS is tasks are completed to your full ability and your team mates and commanding officeking officers will look at you and see you take pride with what you do and respect the role you have within the chosen Public Service. A negative of personal presentation is people may think you take the role too seriously and this could cause discrimination within the workplace. For example, if you are an officer patrolling the streets and your personal presentation is poor the public will not respect the authority you havnd respected member of the force making promotion a possibility. A negative for reliability is that people become too reliant upon you and could lead to issues around your private life. For example, if you begin to cover peoples shift due to their illness, during your time of leave or absence, people will start to ask if you are available to work when there are other people capable to cover them. Also during our drill week our reliability had to be good otherwise the group would get punished and the group would become upset with you. This could also cause......

...Transcript of Positive and negative images of the public services Positive and negative images of the public services FONTS Brutality Corruption Racism Racism has long been a charge leveled at the Public services by the media, for example the Brixton riots in the 80's, stopping and searching black youths in the 1990's or the lack of recruitment of ethnic minority officers. How ever it took the murder of Stephen Lawrence to put the subject on the political and media agenda. Brutality The media shows incidents of the Public services portraying them as if they are using excessive force. Sometimes their claims are unfunded and damage the public perception of the Police. Image of the Public services The public services are portrayed in a variety of different ways by the media. The coverage can be both real, such as Police interceptors or through fictional programs such as Casualty or The Bill. ( And we all know Bradshaw loves The Bill :) A UK study shows that The Sun newspaper dedicates around 30 per cent to crime news. This highlights the time and energy spent on the portrayal of the Public services. Blind obedience The media sometimes choose to portray the public services as lacking discipline and judgement if they blindly obedient when following orders. Blind obedience An example of this was the Hillsborough disaster when West Midlands Police ran their own inquiry into the handling of the disaster by South Yorkshire Police, who orchestrated a cover-up, falsified...

Our choice of public service for discussion shall be centered on the Ghana immigration service: The Ghana immigration service is mandated Under PNDC Law 226 (1989) and are granted the sole mandate to regulate and monitor the entry, residence, employment and the exit of foreigners in Ghana. This mandate was renewed and expanded through the passage of the Immigration Act, 2000 in the administration and governance of their operations they are subject to the laws of the land. Their operational duties are governed or influenced by thirteen domestic legal instruments. They are also subject to interpretations of the numerous international conventions, protocols, directives and accords which the state has ratified. Their mission statement is to build a stronger and better Ghana by operating fair but firm immigration controls that regulates and facilitates the movement of people through Ghana’s borders and efficient, effective residence and work permit systems that meet the social and economic needs of the country. But currently the services lack a migration policy. The basic assumption has been that Ghana is a nation of emigration, whereas in fact it has become a nation absorbing large-scale immigration beyond the scope of controlling legislation to manage. Ghana has limited coherence in its immigration law. It lacks vision and long-term goals and has limited......
