Pumpkin Patch

...ntroduction Nowadays, children’s clothing profession’s development is becoming much more powerful than before. In 1990, this kind of profession could not satisfy customers’ demands. Due to the lack of fashionable children’s clothing, Pumpkin Patch was found by Sally Synnott, who was the head children’s wear buyer in New Zealand. Although Pumpkin Patch was handled by other investors after two years, the brand expanded to a broader influence. Today Pumpkin Patch has its own market in several countries, such as New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom and United States. It is not easy for Pumpkin Patch to operate well in such areas, but the company still decides to look for new territories. So it should fully understand its position and create fitting strategic plans. Analysing the external environment The general environment Demographic----high Speaking of the clothing products, population immediate influences customers’ real and potential demands to the brand. In fact, demands always far exceed supply and products are sold out very early in such countries, especially in New Zealand. It can be noticed that the population between newborn and 14-year old are the major customers of its market. Economic----high In terms of each area’s economic, the consumption level should be mentioned. Taking the United States as an example, the whole cloth market earned US$172.8 billion in 2004 which occupied 22 percent of the total sale of global apparel. Because of the growth of......

Therapeutic Touch

...Therapeutic Touch By Chelsie Boyce Let me begin by saying that after watching several videos (including those provided by you) and reading even more articles, I am more mixed about my acceptance of therapeutic touch. Before this assignment I would have said I was strongly against this practice, but now I am more open to the idea. However, I still believe that therapeutic touch is not a true form of medical healing. To begin with, the Merriam-Webster's Medical Desk Dictionary states that this alternative medicine is a practice where the nurse or practitioner treats a patient by passing his or her hands over a person’s body to promote relaxation, pain reduction and or healing. I must say that the thought of someone’s hands hovering over my body kind of makes me giggle. I keep replaying a scene from Karate Kid over and over again in my head and thinking “yea right” if only it were that easy. After reviewing my resources, I am still very skeptical. Yes, some stated that patients believed they were doing better. But to me that was just it… a belief. Those who had a strong faith in this technique did show signs of relaxation and possible improvement, but I am not sure if the technique caused the reaction or the patient themselves invited the result. Just like Emily Rosa’s experiment supported, as nurses or practitioners we want to believe we can feel the energy being given off and that we are interacting with our patient. Yet, more times than not we are wrong. ......

Pumpkin Genocide

...Pumpkin Genocide Every year around Halloween the act of carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns always seems like a perfect idea, doesn’t it? For you, maybe, but for a pumpkin like me it hits close to home. If you could put yourself into my shoes, (if I could wear shoes) Halloween would be a dreaded time for you and your family. Humans snatching the innocent neighbors, siblings, cousins, or even parents and children of pumpkins from their home to poke holes in them? Horrible. Carving pumpkins is not right; children are taking the lives of pumpkins all over the world for one night of pleasure and most them don’t even know why. Do you know what the Holocaust is? It was a mass killing of all the Jewish people by the Germans in the late 1930’s and it went on for almost a decade. It sounds terrible and horrific, right? Think about all the pumpkins being cut open and placed on front porches for Halloween every year. You’re resembling a nazi murderer every Halloween and do you really want that on your conscience? Pumpkins are being killed for Halloween just because they’re pumpkins; it’s not our fault. It seems like children these days obtain pleasure from poking holes in pumpkins and spilling out our guts just to fill us with a candle. These children are psychotic, arsonistic, crazy, and just disgusting. My family’s guts stuck in your fingers, and you’re laughing? It makes me sick. Kids say, “pumpkins are going to rot and die anyway!” but so are they so why not cut up......

Seed Dormancy

...INTRODUCTION Seed dormancy refers to a state in which viable seeds fail to germinate when provided with conditions normally favourable to germination i.e adequate moisture, appropriate temperature regime, a normal atmosphere and in some cases light. Dormancy has evolved as a strategy to avoid germination under conditions where seedlings survival is likely to be low. Despite the fact that many researchers study dormancy, there is no unambiguous definition of the phenomenon, perhaps because it manifest and broken in different ways in different species( Bewley and Black,1994; Vleeshouwers et al.; Lange ,1996). It is a condition in which seeds will not germinate even when the conditions are permissive for germination (Braford et al;1994).This not only prevent immediate germination but also regulates the time, condition and place that germination will occur. In plant physiology, dormancy is a survival strategy exhibited by many plant species which enable them to survive in climate where part of the year is unsuitable for growth ( Crowe and Crowe,1992). Seed dormancy is nature’s way of setting a time clock that allows the seed to initiate germination when condition are favourable for germination and survival of the seedlings. Dormancy in seeds may be advantageous or problematic during seed handling . The advantage is that it prevents seeds from germinating during storage and other handling procedures, and induction of dormancy, for example by drying and......

Therapeutic Relationship

...This assignment will focus on a short communication between myself and a mother (Caroline) whom I had met three times before, at the antenatal, birth, and six-to-eight week contacts. I had cancelled a three-to-four month visit with her that day on the advice of my mentor. Caroline was an experienced mum and the visit had been mainly to aid my development (Appendix One). She had sounded fine on the phone and had told me she was coming into clinic. Borton’s (1970) reflective model will be used to guide this essay, and I will analyse how the experience has improved my skills in building therapeutic relationships, while recognising areas that require work in order to fulfil my role. All names have been changed to protect confidentiality, as is the responsibility of any registered nurse (NMC 2008). Mental and emotional wellbeing in all family members is intrinsic to the wellbeing of children. The “Healthy Child Programme” (DH 2009) identifies the assessment and promotion of this area as a core part of the health visitor’s role. A common mental health problem that impacts on children is post-natal depression, affecting 10-15% of women (Royal College of Psychiatrists n.d.). Infants whose mothers have post-natal depression often have less positive life outcomes, as discussed in Every Child Matters (HM Treasury 2003). It can impact negatively on emotional, social and mental development, often demonstrated through behavioural problems (Wrate et al., 1985), and neurological problems......

...Pumpkins Pumpkins are a fruit that belong in the same family as squash and cucumbers. They are grown in six of the seven continents. In the United States the pumpkin is a common symbol in many fall activities and holidays, the most popular of them being Halloween and thanksgiving. October is the month in which the majority of pumpkins are sold. On October 31 children and adults alike use pumpkins to make jack lanterns. These decorations are most commonly in the form of a face represented by the eyes, nose, and mouth. A candle is typically placed inside allowing light to shine through providing the “lantern “effect. Pumpkins are also edible and are used in many recipes. In the colonial times they were used to make pie crusts, but now it is much more common to be used as a filling instead. They were also used by the Indians for medicinal purposes as a first aid for snake bites. Trees Trees are a very symbolic plant. Used as an outline to map ones family history, to being a self sustained ecosystem of its own, the tree has represented many things throughout history. With its roots reaching deep into the ground to provide nutrients for the trunk, branches, and leaves, they are a perfect example of the circle of life. As the leaves wither and die they fall to the ground and begin to decay providing food to be used again by the tree from which they came. This self perpetuating cycle has been around for billions of years and continues today. This phenomenon has...

Seed Germination

...Introduction Seed germination is a process in which the plant’s embryo developed from the seed and forms seedling (Bello, Hatterman-Valenti & Owen, 2000). The process of germination starts with imbibition which is the uptake of water by the dry, followed by the activation of enzyme and ends with the elongation of the radicle. The imbibition stage is a crucial process as it is the first event that moves the seed from a dry, quiescent, dormant organism to the resumption of embryo growth (Bewley, 1997).The breaking of the quiescent and subsequent germination depends on the sufficiency of oxygen, proper amount of water and suitable temperature (Parker, 2000). The penetration of water to the seed coat causes the hard and dry tissues inside to soften. This speeds up the seed metabolism, allowing the water to move quicker as the seed coat splits open. Once the seed are imbibed, the action of enzyme (amylase) takes place (Fenner & Thompson, 2005). It begins during the lag phase of water uptake. The role of enzyme in seed germination is to mobilize nutrients to the growing region of the embryo. Germination of seed is considered complete upon the emergence of radicles from the seed (Copeland, 1999). Germination only occurs when the seed plant is exposed to a favorable condition. The factors affecting the germination of seeds include oxygen, water availability and temperature. Other factors include hormones, the depth at which the seed was planted and light. In this......

Therapeutic Courts

...Therapeutic Courts Through out the court system there is a up and coming alternate approach to sentencing, this approach is called therapeutic court. Therapeutic court is an alternate sentencing that can either shorten the jail time the offender was sentenced to or erase any chance of the offender serving any jail time at all. This sentencing combines both individual counseling as well as group counseling, also allowing these counselors to give random check ups with home visits and strict supervision. This type of court gives nonviolent offenders the chance to not only to stay out of prison but also the chance to better themselves by completing this “rehab like” sentencing and beating their addiction of drugs/alcohol. The history of therapeutic courts started in the mid 1980s when drug cases increased due to the war on drugs crackdown. More and more people were being arrested, prosecuted, and imprisoned for possession of illegal drugs. As time went on, drug abuse violations grew to “the largest single category of police activity - more than 1.5 million per year”(America’s Courts pg106) the majority of these crimes taking place in the countries largest urban areas. With the rapid increase of caseloads that were not seen as extremely dangerous crimes, courts soon began to seek alternative methods to help manage this drug abuse crisis. The idea that was created is known as drug courts and they viewed offenders not as criminals but as offenders with a drug abuse addiction.......

Therapeutic Alliance

...KANTHAROUP Term. Establishing an efficient relationship between client and counsellor is one of the key aspect in counselling. Every therapeutic session starts with the process of building up a therapeutic alliance. Bob Shebib defines the therapeutic alliance as a time limited period of consultation between a counsellor and one or more clients for assisting the client in achieving a defined goal (Shebib, 2014). However, to achieve successful results, a partnership that primarily focuses on the clients’ needs and goals is required. The therapist must be eager to help the clients with care and compassion while the patient also need to perceive and understand their own mental state. Interactions between both sides should be done with trust and respect to ensure the safest environment possible for the client. As therapeutic alliance is the heart in counselling processes, it is significant to acknowledge some of the key components that leads to a successful therapeutic session. This paper will demonstrate how a successful relationship is constructed. It will first explore the emotional and affective component highlighting the bonding of both therapists and client. Agreement on goals between both sides be examined in a detailed method. To finalize the paper, numerous principles will be shown to illustrate the ways therapists should cope if a therapeutic rupture interferes. In order for the client and therapist to form a partnership based on the client’s goal and needs, it is......
