What does it mean to adopt a family relationship framework, and what makes this unique from other perspectives?

From a family therapist standpoint, what does it mean to adopt a family relationship framework, and what makes this unique from other perspectives? Include specific examples in your answer of something a family therapist would do if they were practicing within a family relationship framework and something they would not do when working with families. Share why you chose these examples.
Chapter 2 of the Goldenberg text focuses on the concept of family life cycles as multidimensional, multicultural, and multigenerational. What does the family life cycle mean to you, and why is it so important for family therapists to understand and incorporate into their practice? As you answer this question, consider two very different causes for unexpected disruptions in a family’s life cycle, a traumatic natural fatal event such as a heart attack or a hurricane versus a human-made traumatic event like a school shooting or a violent sexual assault. Do you think these different types of events would impact the family in similar or different ways?

Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the investment alternatives; common stock, bonds, and preferred stock.

From the investor’s point of view, analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the three investment alternatives—common stock, bonds, and preferred stock. Why would an investor select an investment in bonds over common stock, even if the return on the common stock investment is higher?
From the firm’s perspective, evaluate the pros and cons of using different combinations of debt, common stock, and preferred stock to raise funds. Why do some firms use preferred stock and others do not? Is it a matter of subjective preference, or are there sound theoretical reasons for the use of specific sources of funding?
How does an investor’s evaluation of the investment alternatives differ from the evaluation by a company trying to raise funds?
Among all the capital budgeting methodologies and their respective rules, which would you use and why? What are the advantages of one rule over another? Does the size or the nature of an investment have any impact on which method should be used? Why or why not? How might a rule be improved to make it more effective?

How can consumers and businesses protect themselves against fraud?

 
Fraud detection can be critical when it comes to data and being able to analyze that data. Some examples of fraud would be credit card fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, etc.
In 3-4 pages, describe how your information on social media is protected. Who is ultimately responsible to protect that information, the business or the consumer? Why?
When we talk about protecting our data, whose shoulders does that responsibility fall upon? Do we, as consumers, have an obligation to take responsibility for our own data? How can consumers and businesses protect themselves against fraud?

Consider the role that government regulation and accountability plays in higher education.

Medical schools of the nineteenth century exemplified American society’s enchantment for education without the overly strict rules and standards. Reflect on the role of Medical Colleges in higher education during the first half of the nineteenth century. Consider the educational preparation and requirements for medical doctors during this era. How does it differ today? What influences, with regard to new educational programs and innovations, still impact higher education? Consider the role that government regulation and accountability plays in higher education. How do you feel America’s approach to building higher education might change in the next five to ten years?
Becoming a doctor in this era is extremely hard and time-consuming. Students spend up to 10-12 years studying, and experiments with different medicines and figuring out how the human body operates. The rules and standards have drastically changed and evolved. The role of a doctor is in higher demand than in the early 19th century. During the early 19 century, the role of the doctor was important. Health was a product of ensuring that one’s body maintained a proper equilibrium with itself and with the environment around it. There were a lot of deadly body diseases that were spreading.  With such a serious and demanding duties, one would think that the requirements would be set a little higher. It was suggested but not required that medical students during this time needed any type of high school diploma or college degree ( Thelin, 2011).  Medical students now required to have Bachelors, and Master degrees plus a certain amount of practicum hours.
Of course, over time, the financial cost would change. Doctors are now using high advance technology devices to even create a cure for diseases that once was not even treatable. With the assistance of high educators, these medical students are able to explore and investigate deeper into the roots are medicine and working with the human body.  The government has a lot of control of education. Public universities are allocated funds and also requires the institution to cover certain information.

Education is the success throughout everyday peoples lives. It uses innovative and creative thinkers. The benefits of technology has advance the teaching as it pertains to the medical field. With all of the updated advances in medicine the use of more technology and a higher curriculum is needed fro doctors to better understand their patients. When thinking back in the early days I think many doctors only were allowed to read and try to figure out what is best for the patients. Using natural herbs and maybe old remedies they learn from their forefathers was how they tired to save lives. The advances in medical education today has saved so many lives and the fact that doctor are willing to go back to school and learn more advance more and understand the importance of being well education to save patients lives. I believe medical technology will evolve in the next 20 years they will have cures for cancer, aids and other diseases that plague our nation and take lives everyday. The fact that some doctor have gone into learning more about natural medicine like in the 1600s is great because it worked then and it still can save lives now. The new technology and innovation as mechanical cadavers and other studies will provide in-depth perceptions and look into the benefits of people’s health overall.

Discuss the dynamics of university-buildings in the formative decades between 1880 and 1910.

 Captains of Industry
The wealth and energy between 1880 and 1910 was a unique and dynamic period in higher education.  During this time the stock market was volatile and the rules that governed higher education were mostly absent. In addition, there was an abundance of industrial wealth, and a new level of philanthropic generosity toward higher education. Uncertainty and diversity were characteristics of this time period.
Discuss the dynamics of university-building in the formative decades between 1880 and 1910. Reflect on the actions and influences of Slossen’s book Great American Universities  and the Association of American Universities. What were some of the historical, political, and economic reasons that these associations had so much influence? Are there similar associations in higher education today?
