treatment_options - Edgewater - Edgewater Pediatric Dentistry

Treatment Options Most children are calm, comfortable and confident in a pediatric dental office. The office is designed for young people, and pediatric dentists have additional training in caring for infants, children and adolescents. Staff members choose to work in a pediatric dental office because they like children and want to cater to their special needs. These elements combine to make your child feel relaxed and special. Sometimes, however, a child may feel anxious before or during treatment. Your child may need more support than a gentle, caring manner to feel comfortable. I. NITROUS OXIDE: multiple visits but very safe and effective Q: What is nitrous oxide/oxygen? Nitrous oxide/oxygen (N2O-O2) is a blend of two gases -- oxygen and nitrous oxide. A fitted mask is placed over the nose and, as the patient breathes normally, uptake occurs through the lungs. At the end of treatment, it is eliminated after a short period of breathing 100% oxygen and has no lingering effects. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is a safe, effective sedative agent used to calm a child’s fear of the dental visit and enhance effective communication. Additionally, it works well for children whose gag reflex interferes with dental treatment Q: How will my child feel when breathing nitrous oxide/oxygen? Your child will smell a faint, sweet aroma and experience a sense of well-being and relaxation. Since it may produce a feeling of giddiness or euphoria, it is often called "laughing gas." Children sometimes report dreaming and their arms and legs may feel "tingly." It raises the pain threshold and may even make the time appear to pass quickly. If your child is worried by the sights, sounds or sensations of dental treatment, he or she may respond more positively with the use of nitrous oxide/oxygen. Q: How safe is nitrous oxide/oxygen?...

Small Business Owner Report - About Bank of America

Letter from Robb Hilson We are pleased to share the spring 2013 Bank of America Small Business Owner Report, a semi-annual study that uncovers the concerns, aspirations and perspectives of small business owners across the country. This study examines a variety of leading issues for small business owners, including personal health and wellness, revenue and growth expectations, preparedness for the unexpected and access to capital. The Report found that small business owners are not only focused on improving the financial health of their company, they are also focused on their own personal health and their employees’ wellness. Nearly nine in 10 of those surveyed report taking some steps to improve employee health and wellness. When thinking about the next 12 months, they are optimistic regarding their revenue and hiring expectations but remain concerned about the health of the overall economy. In addition, Millennial (18-to-34-years-old) small business owners are the most optimistic across all age groups regarding what the future holds for the economy and their business. At Bank of America, we know that small business owners are an essential element of our national and local economies. We are committed to offering the personal connection and local expertise of our bankers who are dedicated to the success of both small businesses and their communities.

Spooky Business: - Center for Corporate Policy

This report is an effort to document something we know little about: corporate espionage against nonprofit organizations. The entire subject is veiled in secrecy. In recent years, there have been few serious journalistic efforts – and no serious government efforts -- to come to terms with the reality of corporate spying against nonprofits. Much of what we do know about this subject has been uncovered by accident. So the picture we have is fragmentary at best: just a few snapshots, taken mostly at random, arising from brilliant strokes of luck, giving a mere inkling of the full range of espionage activity against nonprofits. There are, however, a few things we can say for certain. The corporate capacity for espionage has skyrocketed in recent years. Most major companies now have a chief corporate security officer tasked with assessing and mitigating “threats” of all sorts – including from nonprofit organizations. And there is now a surfeit of private investigations firms willing and able to conduct sophisticated spying operations against nonprofits. The use of former intelligence, military and law enforcement officers for corporate espionage appears to be commonplace. Especially prevalent is the use of former Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency and Secret Service agents, as well as current or former police officers, and other former military, intelligence and law enforcement officials. These current and former government employees, and current government contractors, do their spying against nonprofits with little regulation or oversight, and apparently with near impunity. Many of the world’s largest corporations and their trade associations -- including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Walmart, Monsanto, Bank of America, Dow Chemical, Kraft, CocaCola, Chevron, Burger King, McDonald’s, Shell, BP, BAE, Sasol, Brown & Williamson and E.ON -- have been linked to espionage or...

Women in senior management: setting the stage for ... - Grant Thornton

This report, based on the latest research from the International Business Report (IBR), explores the global shift in the number of women at the top of the business world and examines ways to make this growth permanent and parity possible. Key findings from the survey include: • women hold 24% of senior management roles globally, a three point increase over the previous year • there has been a sharp rise in China, with 51% of senior management positions held by women, compared to 25% last year • the proportion of businesses employing women as CEOs has risen from 9% to 14% • education and talent management may work in tandem with flexible work arrangements, which 67% of respondents offer, to increase the number of women in top leadership • just 19% of board roles around the world are held by women • although quotas have been put into place around the globe to increase women’s participation in boards, 55% of respondents oppose such quotas. Changing perceptions FIGURE 1: PERCENTAGE OF WOMEN IN SENIOR MANAGEMENT Over the past year, women have grabbed headlines in every industry and every corner of the globe. In the arts, more female directors, producers and writers were able to get their work into cinemas, television and theatre. In politics, an increasing number of women won elections: South Korea, for instance, recently swore in its first female president. Approximately 17 countries have women as head of government, head of state or both (a number that, according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union and UN Women, has more than doubled since 2005), and the world average for women in parliament totaled 20.4% as of 1 February 20131. The corporate world also saw firsts: Marissa Mayer broke ground when she took the helm of Yahoo more than six months pregnant. Women breaking barriers was the conversation of the year – from the much-discussed piece in The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” by a Princeton professor and former US State Department official, Anne-Marie Slaughter, to...

Women in business: - Grant Thornton International Business Report

Just one in seven delegates at the annual World Economic Forum gathering was a woman this year. This statistic alone explains why the issue of women in businesses inspires so much passion and debate, emphasising that the path from the classroom to the boardroom is anything but straightforward. Ironically, attendees in Davos looked at the role improved gender balance can have on businesses’ bottom lines, highlighting the example of the car market in which women influence 85% of purchases worldwide. Involving women at all stages of the production process, from design, to engineering, to marketing, could help businesses create products and services that appeal to both genders. We have been tracking the proportion of women in senior management since 2004 and the research this year finds that the proportion of women in the most senior roles has stagnated at 24% the same as the result in 2012, 2009 and 2007. The question this raises is: what are the roadblocks on the path to senior management? This report starts by looking at education, an essential building block of any career. We find some positive news here, with female participation in education soaring in many economies over recent years, particularly emerging markets, which have traditionally lagged 4 Women in business: the path to the boardroom...

The People's Business - Social Enterprise UK

Social enterprise is a movement unified by a proposition: that we can change the world by changing the way we do business. This report was written by Frank Villeneuve-Smith and Charlotte Chung, with support from Celia Richardson, Nick Temple and Fran Gorman. Social enterprises are businesses trading for social and environmental purposes. Rather than maximising private profit, their aim is to generate profit to further their social and environmental goals. They want to make the world – or at least their community – a better place. The research was designed by Charlotte Chung and Ceri Jones, with support from Lys Coleman. The field work was carried out by BMG research. Social Enterprise UK would like to thank The Royal Bank of Scotland Group for their sponsorship of this report, and particularly, Sarah Wright for her support. We would like to thank Dai Powell of HCT Group for the generous ‘loan’ of Frank Villeneuve-Smith to work on the project. And thank you also to everyone at Social Enterprise UK, especially, Sam Simmons, Ólöf Jónsdóttir, Ruty Geva and Charlie Wigglesworth. We would like to thank the following organisations for sharing their contacts with us to take part in this survey – Co-operatives UK, National Housing Federation, Locality, Social Enterprise East of England, Social Firms UK, and UnLtd – as well as the many organisations who promoted this survey through their networks. We would also like to thank Fergus Lyon and Rob Baldock (Third Sector Research Centre) and David Floyd for their support. Finally, our thanks to the social enterprises that took time out of busy schedules to take part in this research and the social enterprises that spared the time to be photographed for the report – Belu, Bounce Back, Connection Crew, Elvis & Kresse and Ministry of Stories.

IRS-CI Fiscal Year 2013 Annual Business Report - Internal Revenue ...

IRS-CI Fiscal Year 2013 Annual Business Report Chief’s Message – Richard Weber As I reflect back on Fiscal Year 2013, it is clear that it was one of the most challenging years in recent memory for the Service. Despite those challenges, CI thrived. Our special agents and analysts continue to prove that tenacity and hard work in investigating financial crimes are the keys to successful prosecutions. It has been my experience that our agents have the undisputed and well-deserved reputation as the finest financial investigators in the world. Our professional staff remains steadfast in accomplishing the tasks at hand. I continue to be humbled with leading an organization with employees who have the skills and determination to stay mission focused and overcome difficulties and keep CI moving in a positive direction. Chief Weber listens to presentations during Elmer Irey Day awards ceremony. During Fiscal Year 2013, we were faced with the continued challenge of declining resources. Our staffing of special agents and professional staff were at the lowest in years, and budget constraints curtailed our official travel and training. However, we still remained a strong organization – working complex and sensitive investigations where we have the advantage of strong financial expertise. This annual report includes case summaries...

INTUIT FUTURE OF SMALL BUSINESS REPORT

The 1960s and 1970s were an era of social transformation, as diverse members of society—women, minorities, youth, immigrants, and the disabled—challenged government, business, and other traditional institutions. This period of social disruption was followed by a period of techno- Small businesses are an important and growing driver of U.S. economic growth and dynamism. They employ over half of America’s private sector workers, produce over half of America’s non-farm private GDP, and create roughly 75% of new private sector jobs. The next decade will see the growth of small business continue, and the social and economic impacts of small business increase. To better understand this important segment of the U.S. and global economy, Intuit and the Institute for the Future have undertaken a research project to identify, analyze, and forecast the significant trends and forces impacting small business over the next decade. We will present our findings in a series of forecast reports. Demographic Trends...
