How Is Health Seeking Behavior And Patient Outcomes For Latin Immigrants Affected By Language Barriers, Socioeconomic Status And Health Literacy?, Cassandra Sanchez Dec 2022

How Is Health Seeking Behavior And Patient Outcomes For Latin Immigrants Affected By Language Barriers, Socioeconomic Status And Health Literacy?, Cassandra Sanchez

Nursing | Senior Theses

Background

Language barriers cause a disconnect between patients and health care workers. What further causes a disconnect is when patients have a lower level of education in addition to having a language barrier. I will be focusing on Latin immigrant individuals in the United States for my research. Many Latin immigrant patients may not have gone to school in their native countries, so their education level is lower making it harder to understand discharge information or patient teaching. When patients are unable to have that health literacy it may lead to negative patient outcomes due to not adhering to medication ...


Reconstructing The Practical Theory Of Communication In Dating Matters: Examining Teen Dating Violence Prevention From A Communicative Approach, Diana Costanzo Aug 2022

Reconstructing The Practical Theory Of Communication In Dating Matters: Examining Teen Dating Violence Prevention From A Communicative Approach, Diana Costanzo

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Teen Dating Violence (TDV) has lasting impacts on teens’ health and well-being. Dating Matters: Strategies to Promote Healthy Teen Relationships (DM), a curriculum published by the CDC in 2019, seeks to mitigate the consequences of TDV and promote healthy relationships. Using Grounded Practical Theory (Craig & Tracy, 1995, 2014), this paper analyzes how DM conceptualizes communication. Specifically, I explore and critique how DM discusses topics related to communication and conflict. The findings of the analysis show that DM focuses on sending the right message in communication. In DM, parents and teens are encouraged to “talk it out” or “speak up” when ...


The Personal Is Still Political: An Analysis Of Jessica Valenti's Contemporary Feminine Style, Michala M. Zilkey Aug 2022

The Personal Is Still Political: An Analysis Of Jessica Valenti's Contemporary Feminine Style, Michala M. Zilkey

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

In 2016, Jessica Valenti’s memoir, Sex Object, was published. Sex Object describes Valenti’s experiences of sexualization and objectification in a personal and anecdotal format. The feminine style, a rhetorical style that bridges the divide between norms of femininity and expectations of public oration, has been heralded as essential for advancing the feminist movement. This thesis asks the question, to what extent does contemporary feminists’ rhetoric mirror and diverge from earlier iterations of the feminine style? I argue that Valenti’s employs a feminine style that utilizes relational norms and self-disclosure to illustrate the personal as political and the ...


Vietnam Continued: The Battle For American Public Memory In Public School History Textbooks, Donnie Owens Aug 2022

Vietnam Continued: The Battle For American Public Memory In Public School History Textbooks, Donnie Owens

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The question of “how do we actively remember the past?” can perhaps best describe the purpose of public memory studies. Acknowledging this question, I analyze popular public-school textbooks to assess the way in which educational literature constructs the public memory of the Vietnam War. In total, the narratives of the texts construct a public memory of Vietnam as a controversial conflict contained within a decade of American uncertainty. However, these narratives also take care to minimize or leave aside the details of Vietnam’s lasting impact and in favor of reaffirming American exceptionalism. Ultimately, this thesis finds that students who ...


Applying The Dialogic Method In An Eighth Grade English Curriculum, Maggie Repko Aug 2022

Applying The Dialogic Method In An Eighth Grade English Curriculum, Maggie Repko

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

In this thesis, I provide an analysis of Paulo Freire’s (1973) dialogic method for language education. I then synthesize his theories with the work of sociocultural and linguistic researchers who have determined the strongest activities to bring about student language development. Finally, I apply these theories to my appendices of created works that might be utilized in an eighth-grade creative writing course. This thesis demonstrates the similarities between Freire’s students and our students in the USA today and the ways that a critical dialogic pedagogy will meet their language learning needs while also inspiring their creative, critical conscientização ...

Online Privacy Challenges And Their Forensic Solutions, Bandr Fakiha Jun 2022

Online Privacy Challenges And Their Forensic Solutions, Bandr Fakiha

Journal of the Arab American University مجلة الجامعة العربية الامريكية للبحوث

In the digital age, internet users are exposed to privacy issues online. Few rarely know when someone else is eavesdropping or about to scam them. Companies, governments, and individual internet users are all vulnerable to security breaches due to the challenges of online privacy ranging from trust and hierarchical control to financial losses. As systems advance, people are optimistic that forensic science will provide long-term interventions that surpass the current solutions, including setting stronger passwords and firewall protection. The future of online privacy is changing, and more practical interventions, such as email, malware, mobile, and network forensics, must be integrated ...

Extended Commentary: Critical Race Theory, Identity Politics, And The Problem Of Social Solidarity, Ronald J. Berger Jun 2022

Extended Commentary: Critical Race Theory, Identity Politics, And The Problem Of Social Solidarity, Ronald J. Berger

International Social Science Review

This article examines the emergent controversy over Critical Race Theory—what it is, how it is applied and practiced, and why it has become the source of conservative political opposition in the United States. The claims and counterclaims about the theory can be understood in the context of the broader politics of identity among both the political left and political right, as well as the more general problem of social solidarity and the challenge of incorporating diversity and multiculturalism in today’s racially polarized political environment.

Patterns Of Social Relationships And Their Outcomes: The Case Of Ireland, Suzanne Farmer, Jennifer Edwards Jun 2022

Patterns Of Social Relationships And Their Outcomes: The Case Of Ireland, Suzanne Farmer, Jennifer Edwards

International Social Science Review

This study investigates patterns of relationships in Ireland, focusing on the impact of such relationships within Irish society. This paper contends that the social climate in modern and present-day Ireland may be traced to the historical context. Thus, patterns of relationships appear in various periods, and the current relational patterns result from historical events and the social structure of pre-modern Ireland. More specifically, hegemonic relations have been present throughout history. As a result, the Irish have endured unequal treatment, as they have been viewed as inferior, and forced to suffer due to poor economic and social conditions. Further, issues of ...


Arthur Sherwell (1863-1942): Temperance Reformer And Liberal Mp, David Fahey Jun 2022

Arthur Sherwell (1863-1942): Temperance Reformer And Liberal Mp, David Fahey

International Social Science Review

As a social reformer, Arthur Sherwell had many interests. After several years as a Wesleyan Methodist preacher, he became an expert on urban poverty and the ally of feminist reformers. He saw the solution to poverty in Britain as tied to the future of the Empire, specifically self-governing colonies such as Australia. He spent much of his life seeking to answer the question of working-class drinking in big cities. Most activists in the temperance movement thought the answer was prohibition in the form of local plebiscites. Rejecting prohibition, Sherwell and his ally Joseph Rowntree urged instead what they called disinterested ...

As Academia Reels From Scotus' Dobbs Opinion, One University Training Pro-Life Advocates, Mark D. Weinstein

News Releases

As the Supreme Court of the United States released its landmark opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, students at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio, were finishing the second college-level course in the newly established Defending Life Summer Institute. The Institute had been holding classes for two weeks and was in its final day of the 2022 session when Dobbs dropped on the SCOTUS website. Given the Institute’s stated goal “to equip current and future pro-life leaders to advocate for the life of the unborn,” the timing was perfect.

Public Opinion Governance And Think Tank Research Based On Think Tank Double Helix Methodology, Qianqian Li, Yijun Liu, Ning Ma, Hongbing Wang

Bulletin of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Chinese Version)

Public opinion governance research is a typical think tank research driven by big data, which should deal with the "five major challenges" faced by China's economic transformation, social transformation, and reform challenges, namely, risk intertwined challenges, modeling complexity challenges, interdisciplinary challenges, social impact challenges, and scenario uncertainty challenges. The Think Tank Double Helix Methodology provides an effective research paradigm to guide the whole process of public opinion governance and think tank research. Based on this methodology, opinion research could effectively respond to the five significant challenges and serve the demands of national governance. This paper demonstrates a deep understanding ...

Construction Of Digital Economy Monitoring And Evaluation System Based On High-Quality Development—Case Study Of Construction Of Beijing As Global Digital Economy Benchmark City, Yi Sun, Xinrui Li, Yongmiao Hong, Hong Sima, Yanli Zheng, Zhiying Liu, Kun Guo

Bulletin of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Chinese Version)

The digital economy has become the core force in leading economic development and building a new international pattern, and it is the key to achieving high-quality development. How to monitor and evaluate the development level of the digital economy has become an important issue in formulating industrial and regulatory policies for the digital economy reasonably, ensuring the healthy and orderly development of the digital economy, and thus stabilizing the national economic development. The value-added-based statistical system, which was born from the industrial economy, is constrained by data and methods, so it is difficult to accurately measure the level of development ...
