Internet of Things-Smart Home

The whole work, the critical review should be on the smart homenot the Internet of things as this I already have.
The techniques used, the connection and communication techniques and review the boards used against the boards, which I will be using which are:

1)    A Teensy board and an Ada fruit CC3000 board, advantage is that teensy has got a powerful 32 bit ARM processor. Disadvantage an external Wifi therefore the circuit will be a bit scattered and not very ideal for Smart home applications at it requires very small devices.

Ophthalmology: Glaucoma and Visual Field Assessment

Ophthalmology: Glaucoma and Visual Field Assessment

Paper instructions:
College Ophthalmic Assistant Home Study program. Need a paper on topic above. Due July 31. Would like it sooner. Paper Instruction sheet states: The purpose of

this paper is to examine in depth,an area of particular interest.  There are several ways of approaching this study. The student may research a topic with the use of

textbooks and relevant articles or through interviews with physicians, nurses, orthoptists, etc. and apply the researched material to an area within his/her own

experience OR I can do a paper which is a review of the written material on a subject either by presenting a summary of various sources read, or comparing and

contrasting the viewpoints expressed in different sources. Need a title-page, bibliography, footnotes, table of contents, diagrams, illustrations and/or graphs. Would

like to have a draft copy as soon as possible.

The importance of Visual Field Testing when diagnosing Glaucoma

TABLE OF CONTENTS

This paper will investigate how visual field testing can help with detecting and diagnosing Glaucoma.  First it’s important to understand what Glaucoma is, what a

Visual Field Test is, and what information the Visual Field Test collects for the eye care professional.  Then I will share my glaucoma-screening tests with you and

tie things together.

GLAUCOMA
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which cause irreparable damage to the optic nerve and eye function, with vision loss starting at the periphery.  Glaucoma is like a

vision-thief.  Symptoms are leisurely, unproblematic and go relatively undetected.  Nearly half of the population with glaucoma are symptom-free and have no pain

associated with the disease, making screening for glaucoma extremely important.
There are several different forms of glaucoma: primary open-angle, primary angle-closure, secondary, and congenital.   There are several risk factors to developing

glaucoma of which include intraocular pressures greater than 20mmHg, age, heredity, ethnicity (especially in African Americans and Hispanic heritage), medical

conditions (such as diabetes, long-term steroid use, and tumors), and eye trauma. According to the World Health Organization, Glaucoma is the second leading cause of

blindness globally, just behind cataracts, the difference being that much of the vision loss from cataracts is reversible with surgery and vision loss from glaucoma is

permanent.  This disease silently and unnoticeably causes visual field defects, leading to tunnel vision, and eventually blindness; however, if early screening is

done, Glaucoma can be successfully managed to avoid vision loss and blindness.
VISUAL FIELDS
A visual field test (also known as Perimetry) is a screening assessment that essentially draws a map of a person’s entire visual area from the periphery to central

field of vision.  Automated perimetry can help to determine whether or not a person may have visual field defects.
“Automated perimetry plays an important role in both the diagnosis and the follow-up care of patients with Glaucoma.”
Marrelli, Danica J. “Glaucoma: Visual Field Interpretation for the Busy Practitioner.” OptometryTimes. Advanstar Communications Inc., 2009.
On

“The assessment of the visual field…is the mainstay of deciding whether glaucoma therapy has been adequate for an individual patient, because the entire principle of

glaucoma therapy is to prevent loss of visual field. Its importance cannot be emphasized strongly enough.”
Stein, Harold A., Raymond M. Stein, and Melvin I. Freeman. The Ophthalmic Assistant: A Text for Allied and Associated Ophthalmic Personnel. 9th ed. Elsevier, 2013, pp.

351-352.

GLAUCOMA SCREENING: MY RESULTS
In light of this research and the fact that Glaucoma can slowly and silently lead to blindness without many noticeable signs, I wanted to undergo my own visual field

test, along with other Glaucoma screening tests.  Here are my test results:
Tonometry: Intraocular Pressure = 14 mmHg R/E & 13 mmHg L/E  (test completed July 25, 2014)
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): See Appendix A
Visual Field Testing (Perimetry): See Appendix B

Robert Nozick “The Experience Machine”

Robert Nozick “The Experience Machine”

Project description
The point of this paper assignment is for you to explore more fully one of the ethical issues that we’ve covered in class. In the paper you will pick one of the assigned readings listed below, and: (a) explain the case that the author makes in favor of a particular position on a particular ethical issue, (b) offer the best criticism you can find (or think up) of that author’s case, (c) offer the best response that you think the author can make to that criticism, and (d) give your final assessment of the debate.

Part (a): Explain the case made by the author in the paper
• Clearly specify the author’s precise position on the issue in question
o For example, you would not simply say “Jane Doe is anti-abortion”, but specify: “Jane Doe argues that abortion is prima facie morally prohibited, but this prohibition can be overridden in such-and-such situations.”
• Fully explain the case made by the author
o If the author makes a clear argument, spell it out step by step
o If the author uses a thought experiment, give an overview of it and fully explain how it is meant to support the author’s position
• Specify the moral premise or principle that the author is relying on to make his or her case

Part (b): Offer the best criticism that you can find (or think of)
• Explicitly specify which aspect(s) of the author’s case is being criticized
o Challenging the validity or the argument?
o Challenging the truth of a premise?
o Challenging the moral equivalence between the thought experiment and the real-life scenario?
• Outside sources are permitted, but you absolutely must cite them. If you offer a criticism that someone else has already offered, you must cite that author or else you will be subject to plagiarism charges.

Part (c): Offer the best response to that criticism
• Put yourself in the author’s shoes and think how you would respond to the criticism
• Outside sources are permitted, but you absolutely must cite them. If you offer a response that someone else has already offered, you must cite that author or else you will be subject to plagiarism charges.

Part (d): Assess
• Is the criticism in (b) fatal, or does the response in (c) succeed and save the author’s position?
• Where do you personally stand on this issue in the end? Has your position changed since before you started reading, thinking, and writing about the issue? Explain how and why.

Rough length estimates
Intro and “roadmap”: about half of a page
Part (a): about 2 pages
Part (b): about 1 page
Part (c): about 1 page
Part (d): about 1 page

Requirements:
• Include an accurate word count as part of your heading
• Begin your paper with an introductory paragraph featuring a “roadmap” outlining the rest of your paper.
• Cite all direct quotations: “This is a sample quotation from page 78 of Matt Miller’s imaginary best-selling book” (Miller 78).
• If you consult any materials outside of the required course readings, you must include them in a Works Cited section at the end of your paper. “Consult” doesn’t mean that you directly quoted the material in your paper, it just means that it informed or influenced your paper in some way. Even if you don’t quote it directly or discuss it in depth, you still must cite it.
• Format: Double-spaced, size 12 font, normal margins

Sexual Violence in the CA Missionization Process—History Ignored

Sexual Violence in the CA Missionization Process—History Ignored

“In the history of Western civilization writ large, rape is an act of domination, an act of power. As such, it is a violent political act through sexual aggression against women”.
–Antonia Castaneda
Essay Question/Topic: In California, the history of the missions is taught in the fourth grade and usually it is a sanitized version of the true history, and usually the main project involves building a mission. Rarely does it include an analysis of violence.  Menchaca introduces us to process of racialization during colonization and missionization in California (Chapter 5).  And Castaneda in her essay looks at how sexual violence was introduced to the native peoples of Alta California, as well as analyzes its effects on the missionization process (for both the Church and the native peoples).  For your next assignment, you will examine and analyze the missionization process in California. What were some of the important themes that emerged in the readings (Menchaca and Castaneda)? What specifically was the role of the Church in this process and what difficulties did they face, especially in regards to stopping the sexual violence? What impact do you think racialization and the castas had on this process? Finally, what does it reveal about early CA history and how do you think some of this hidden history can be included in 4th grade curriculum? (Hint: you can even do a brief search on the internet, to look at various sites that have curriculum ideas and projects for teachers and students in the 4th grade and critique them briefly).

Format:
•    The review must be typed and be at least 2 ½  full pages. You must not exceed 3   pages.
•    It should be double-spaced and in standard font (No fonts larger than 12)
•    At least 1 inch margin on all sides of the paper.
•    It should be proofread and use standard and formal English.
•    Short essay format, with an introduction, body and conclusion.  You also need a thesis statement.
•    Be sure to use short quotes as supporting evidence and reference your authors/materials.
•    NO TITLE PAGE IS NEEDED. You are to write your name on the top of the paper, nothing else.

What to avoid:
•    Avoid commentary that merely states your pre-established opinions.
•    Avoid commentary not derived from the reading.
•    Avoid rambling.
•    Avoid summary of the readings.

Remember:   The entries should not be summaries of the author’s ideas but exhibit your own original thoughts and reactions to those ideas.
