Global Sukuk Market

Global Sukuk Update
The sukuk market was not spared from the effect of the global financial crisis. After expanding robustly in 2007 (by 90% yoy by total value of sukuk issued), the sukuk market experienced a marked slowdown in 2008 and 1H09 due to the following reasons: • • • Challenging market conditions and drying up of liquidity Wide credit spreads and shortages of USD funding in issuing countries Challenging economic environment in the GCC countries, particularly in the UAE

Nevertheless, as the overall market conditions improved, the primary sukuk market rebounded in 2H09. Third quarter issuance was up by 162.5% yoy and 61.9% qoq to USD8.8bln, followed by a strong issuance of USD8.1bln in 4Q09. These were in comparison to USD2.2bln in 1Q09 and USD5.5bln in 2Q09.

On a quarterly basis, the amount of sukuk issued in 4Q09 was however lower than that recorded in 3Q09 by 8.6%, partly attributed to jitteries in the sukuk market resulting from Dubai World’s announcement on its debt restructuring.

...Upon completing the Teaching Prospective Inventory (TPI) questionnaire the result gave me an interesting insight to views as a future educator. The results were as followed: Transmission (31), Apprenticeship (39), Developmental (40), Nurturing (33), and Social Reform (34). The results on the profile sheet are quite consistent with how I view myself as a person. My high overall scores in the developmental and apprenticeship make perfect sense due to my own development in education. As a mentor, student, and an athlete I have learned to understand the fundamentals of learning skills and truly comprehend them in order to use them effectively and pass the on the same skills along to others. I was in fact a bit surprised by my nurturing and social reform scores. I received a lower score in nurturing than I would have estimated, yet a higher score in social reform than I imagined. I figured I would have score higher in nurturing since I have 4 years of experience in the K-12 system, but when I received a higher social reform score it made sense. I spent a lot of time explaining to the children about what and why society needs them to be good people. Overall I feel the scores are truly reflective on the way I have learned and will teach children. I expectations for my student will be for them to understand the critical skills needed to be successful in their educational and future professional careers. I would also expect them comprehend the role education will play in their......

Medical Assistant

...Medical Administrative Assistant Medical assistants perform administrative and clinical tasks to keep the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors, and other health practitioners running smoothly. The duties of medical assistants vary from office to office, depending on the location and size of the practice and the practitioner's specialty. In small practices, medical assistants usually do many different kinds of tasks, handling both administrative and clinical duties and reporting directly to an office manager, physician, or other health practitioner. Those in large practices tend to specialize in a particular area, under the supervision of department administrators. Medical assistants should not be confused with physician assistants, who examine, diagnose, and treat patients under the direct supervision of a physician (www.bls.gov). Some medical assistants may help doctors examine and treat patients. They may check the height, weight, temperature, and blood pressure of each patient. Assistants write down patients' medical histories and run simple laboratory tests. Sometimes they answer patients' questions about medicines and treatment at home. Assistants may also give injections, apply bandages, and take X-rays. Many assistants take electrocardiograms, which measure the electrical impulses of the heart. Medical assistants are sometimes in charge of buying and maintaining medical equipment and furniture for the doctor's office. They may also act as office......

Medical Assistant

...Jocelinn Pineda 06/17/2013 Chapter 6 Exercise 6-1 The EHR in this physicians practice contains many functions. Look at the functions above. What function(s) do you think a medical assistant would use and why? Medical assistants might use the practice view icon to search for their email in case they are unable to contact a patient by phone. Patient view icon may be another function medical assistance may use for the administrative data of a patient. Exercise 6-2 Why is it important to use more than one attribute when searching for a patient, especially in addition to a first and/or last name? It’s important because the search using a first and/or last name can bring up two or more patient’s with the same names and if you use a birth date in the search a more accurate result of the patient that you are looking for can come up. Exercise 6-3 Briefly describe administrative, clinical, and billing data and state whether the screen above contains any such data. Administrative data is the information of the patient such as full name, date of birth, address, social security number, and telephone numbers. Clinical data is the patients health information. And billing data includes financial information about a patient; the screen above does contain administrative data. Exercise 6-4 The EHRS has the ability to capture data using a drop-down menu. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a drop-down menu? An advantage of using a drop-down menu is that it......

...motivated to study harder in a friendlier academic environment. According to a survey done by the Korea Daily, 82% of the students interviewed responded that they would study better with a teacher that can relate to students. The statistics clearly show that students prefer to study with teachers whom they can confide in compared to clear-cut, stern teachers that only serve to deliver information to students. In such an environment, students will be naturally inclined to listen to lectures more carefully and absorb in information at a quicker pace. Consequently, a teacher’s ability to bond with students is a crucial component of teaching because it encourages students to be more studious. Second, the teacher will also be able to teach students efficiently if he or she can relate to each student. To be specific, the teacher can adapt different teaching styles to each student accordingly if he or she knows each student well. I would like to talk about my personal experiences to illustrate this. When I first entered middle school in Korea, I had trouble understanding math concepts quickly. Fortunately, the teacher knew enough about my strengths and weaknesses that she noticed that I was struggling with comprehension. After school was over, the teacher volunteered to explain the concepts again slowly, and I was finally able to understand the concepts. Likewise, a teacher can better help out students learn if he or she is aware of each student’s tendencies and personalities....

Teaching

...Although there are many things that characterize me as a new teacher, my teaching philosophy is based on a fundamentally optimistic view. I’m currently volunteering at the African Center. I teach basics English to refugees. I believe that all of my students, with the help of the right tools, will be able to overcome any difficulties that the study of a foreign language might present. I don't mean that every student who enters my class will be able to express him or herself equally simply as a result of how I present the lesson, but rather that each of my students will be guaranteed the opportunity to express him or herself to the best of his or her abilities. I believe that one of my best qualities as a new teacher is my ability to inspire confidence in my students so that they feel comfortable expressing themselves regardless of their level of ability. In my language classes, students are required to speak in English at all times: this is not always easy for those who are having their first encounter with this method of foreign language instruction. The first step, then, is to put the student at ease in such a way that even the most timid student is able to make the most of his or her time in the classroom. In my teaching evaluations, many students refer to the type of atmosphere that a language class should have, and to how the learning environment in my classroom allowed them to express themselves: "He created such an amazing class environment; no one was ever afraid......

The Assistant

...Donovan Cann Coach Schmotzer PE 224 12/2/14 Paper 3: Assistant coaches ​Another thing that ties into coaching and is a big part of the program are assistant coaches. I say this because an assistant coach can either be a real help or a big problem. Some assistant coaches embrace the tasks at hand and some run from them. The article “An Assistant’s Focus” talks about how as an assistant you have a tough role. You have to be “on” at all times. This means no slippage weather its handling a task or even at practice. You have to always be motivating and paying attention not just sitting in the background. This brings up the question of a coaches trust in his assistant and the coaches intelligence. ​In my opinion the head coach’s intelligence is based on the quality of people around him. I think so because in any situation you want to surround yourself with the people who have the same knowledge of you or higher. This way you can learn from each other. As a coach you’re not going to be around someone that doesn’t give positive insight on things or makes you feel less smart. Another thing is image if you’re surrounded by people who are not as intelligent as you it makes you seem less intelligent to the other people around you. ​Something that comes to mind also is decision making. There is a vast difference between suggesting and making a decision. As an assistant coach you often give your opinion and how you view things, and as a good head coach you will value your......

...place for teachers of faith in public schools. According to the author, teaching is not just a skill or a day of rigid routines. However, it is about knowledge and developing the child as a whole. Teachers help children learn their place in the world and how to interact in social environments. They have high expectations for their students because they know that Christ created them. Faith influences a teacher’s character; therefore, the teachers show love, joy, and integrity in their work. In this article the author gives a few accounts of teachers that were called to serve in different geographical locations and in different situations. In each situation they served their students with joy and love, furthermore, sharing their faith through actions. I agree with the author’s stance on respecting the legal and ethical boundaries when it comes to religion and public schools. There are many different cultures and beliefs in our schools. Therefore, families trust that teachers will not teach or thrust a set of beliefs they deem as the correct beliefs on their children (Eckert, 2014, p. 21). There are many ways I can show the Gospel of Christ’s love through myself without ever having to argue or preach to someone. One way is to practice godly character by being, honest, sincere, and remaining humble. Another way to show Christ’s love is through actions of love, grace, and joy. When God called me into teaching he gave me a passion and desire to spend my life doing this type of......
