After age sixty-six, the likelihood of a person developing Alzheimer's Disease doubles about every five years (Dytchwald, K. Dec. 18. 2000). Unless a cure is found in our lifetime, it is estimated that the disease will strike fourteen million baby boomers by the middle of this century, up from four million today. Dytchwald also notes that the duration of the disease, which currently averages eighth to ten years before death will continue to be prolonged to fifteen to twenty more years or more.

  • A Generation Set Aside - 1,280 words
    A Generation Set Aside Often we hear of the generation gap -- that huge expanse between parent and child. Perhaps it is an acquaintance gap. Young people and adults do not know each other. The inability to communicate often enters the picture. Sometimes it is because neither knows what the other is interested in. They live under the same roof, but they rarely see one another, especially after the teenage years come along. The father goes off to work before the children are awake. Mother may go back to bed after seeing the husband off to work; or off to her own job. Teenagers get themselves up and off to school without seeing either parent. Then after school there is ball practice, band pract ...

Ford says Lincoln stands for American luxury; Volvo means thoughtful and understated, Jaguar suggests refined power, and Aston Martin is a most exclusive club (Holstein). Ford is looking to these names to catapult them to the rank of the world's dominant maker of luxury vehicles. In 1998 Ford sold 250,000 luxury vehicles worldwide and Volvo sold about 400,000. If Jaguar continues to expand and the numbers from Ford and Volvo are combined, Ford should be able to sell about 1 million luxury cars per year soon after 2000 (Holstein ...

  • Balanced Budget - 1,815 words
    Balanced Budget Balanced Budget Thomas Jefferson stated, I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt (Grinsburg 1).

Three main arguments uphold this premise. They are as follows: 1. It is feasible for the government to balance the budget, 2. A budget deficit harms the United States through creating a trade deficit and increasing the national debt, 3. A balanced budget would benefit ...

  • Consumer As Segmentation - 1,772 words
    Consumer As Segmentation 1. Introduction Organizations that sell to consumer and business markets recognize that they cannot appeal to all buyers in those markets or at least not to all buyers in the same way. Buyers are too numerous, too widely scattered and too varied in their needs and buying practices. Companies vary widely in their abilities to serve different segments of the market. Rather than trying to compete in an entire market, sometimes against superior competitors, each company must identify the parts of the market that it can serve best. Segmentation is thus a compromise between the rash assumption that all people are the same and the uneconomic assumption that each person need ...

  • Gun Laws - 5,486 words
    Gun Laws States from Michigan to Nebraska to California, as well as the federal government, are considering new rules on letting law-abiding citizens carry guns. Does allowing citizens to carry concealed handguns deter violent crimes? Or does this cause otherwise law-abiding citizens to harm each other? Thirty-one states now have guaranteed their citizens the right to carry concealed handguns if applicants do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness. So what have the results been? The numbers tell the story Using the FBI's crime-rate data for all 3,054 U.S. counties by year from 1977 to 1992, I co-authored a study in the January 1997 Journal of Legal Studies. We ...

These trends present special problems for smaller, rural hospitals which have more difficulty gathering resources, staying technologically current, and maintaining financial strength. As a result, more and more smaller hospitals are closing, especially in these rural areas. The high level of unemployment in the early 1980's along with stricter eligibility requirements for Medicaid led to a rise in the number of uninsured individuals in the U.S.(see diagram 2).
