CRISIS MANAGEMENT - ADL Home Page

The Art of Crisis Management While we do not propose a formal definition of the word crisis in this manual, we treat any event that can, within a short period of time, harm your institution’s constituents, its facilities, its finances or its reputation as a crisis. Crisis management is the art of making decisions to head off or mitigate the effects of such an event, often while the event itself is unfolding. This often means making decisions about your institution’s future while you are under stress and while you lack key pieces of information. Consistent with the overall philosophy of this manual, the key to being able to manage a crisis is doing as much planning as practical before a crisis starts in order to best position you and your institution to respond to and mitigate such a situation. The Crisis Management Continuum: Introduction What is usually called “crisis management” should be best understood as part of a broad continuum of activities as follows: • Planning. Planning relates to getting your institution in the best position to react to, and recover from, an emergency. • Incident Response. Incident responses are the processes that you have put into place to ensure that your institution reacts properly and orderly to an incident as it occurs. Examples of incident response include: a. Evacuation after a called-in bomb threat b. Denial of entry to suspicious persons c. Calling for medical help when a child is injured in your school • Crisis Management. Crisis Management is the management and coordination of your institution’s responses to an incident that threatens to harm, or has harmed, your institution’s people, structures, ability to operate, valuables and/or reputation. It takes into account your planning and automatic incident response, but must also dynamically deal with situations as they unfold, often in unpredictable ways.  ...

REFRIGERATION USING SOLAR ENERGY
by gamcantoy 0 Comments favorite 47 Viewed Download 0 Times

Technology: Absorption refrigeration: In this system solar energy is used to drive out the volatile component from a solution and build up the pressure. Examples are water vapour from lithium bromide water solution or ammonia from aqueous ammonia solution. The vapour is then condensed (rejecting heat). This is done with either water-cooling or air-cooling. The condensed liquid is then expanded to absorb heat from the space where refrigeration is needed. The vapours are once again absorbed in the solution. The cycle is continuously repeated. Sub zero temperatures can be reached by absorption refrigeration systems. Ice can be made. Adsorption refrigeration: In this system solar energy is used to drive out the volatile component from a solid adsorber and build up the pressure. Examples are water vapour and silica gel adsorbent or ammonia and activated carbon adsorbent. The vapour is then condensed (rejecting heat). This is done with either water-cooling or air-cooling. The condensed liquid is then expanded to absorb heat from the space where refrigeration is needed. The vapours are once again adsorbed by the adsorbent. The cycle is continuously repeated. These systems are suited for cooling applications. These are old concepts and adequate published data is available on many variants. Commercial systems are working where waste heat is available. Like wise generating hot ware or steam using solar energy is a proven technology. The challenge is combining these two technologies into an economically viable system. Manufacturing process: The main activity is design and engineering. A good engineering design team with formal qualifications and experience in the refrigeration industry is needed.

2013 Patent Litigation Study - PwC
by moroon 0 Comments favorite 46 Viewed Download 0 Times

We view 2012 as a banner year in patent litigation. Massive damages awards made headlines. The 2011 America Invests Act (AIA) began making its impact. The influence of nonpracticing entities (NPEs) continued to grow. And the number of patents granted and litigations filed maintained their upward trajectory. Prior to 2012, only three patent infringement damages awards eclipsed the $1 billion mark. But last year alone, three cases, tried before juries in separate districts, resulted in awards of $1 billion or greater: Monsanto v. DuPont, Apple v. Samsung, and Carnegie Mellon University v. Marvell. The outcomes of these matters have varied so far. Monsanto v. DuPont settled for a ten-year $1.75 billion license; the $1.05 billion award in Apple v. Samsung was reduced by $450 million and likely will be modified further; and Carnegie Mellon v. Marvell remains in the post-trial phase. Similarly, two ‘stent wars’ verdicts of more than $500 million were overturned or settled for short dollars in 2013. NPEs continued to play a critical and growing role in patent litigation in 2012. One recent analysis reported that as of 2012 NPEs accounted for the majority of patent infringement litigation filed in the United States, compared to less than a quarter of patent infringement lawsuits filed in 2007.1 Our statistics indicate that only 16% of identified decisions in 2012 involved NPE patent holders. The difference reveals a much higher tendency for NPE actions to be resolved without a formal court decision. Our analysis continues to show a significant disparity in median damages awarded to NPEs versus practicing entities. Over the last 12 years, NPEs have been awarded median damages that have averaged twice the median award for practicing entities. The AIA also made an impact in 2012. While many elements of the AIA did not go into effect until late 2012 or early 2013, the ‘anti-joinder’ provision, which constrained the number of defendants that could be named in the same lawsuit, became effective on September 16, 2011.

What is Asset Based Community Development - Collaborative for ...

What is Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) is a strategy for sustainable communitydriven development. Beyond the mobilization of a particular community, ABCD is concerned with how to link micro-assets to the macro-environment. The appeal of ABCD lies in its premise that communities can drive the development process themselves by identifying and mobilizing existing, but often unrecognized assets, and thereby responding to and creating local economic opportunity. ABCD builds on the assets that are already found in the community and mobilizes individuals, associations, and institutions to come together to build on their assets-- not concentrate on their needs. An extensive period of time is spent in identifying the assets of individuals, associations, and then institutions before they are mobilized to work together to build on the identified assets of all involved. Then the identified assets from an individual are matched with people or groups who have an interest or need in that asset. The key is to begin to use what is already in the community. In the past when a person had a need they went to their neighborhood for assistance. But this has shifted today to the belief that the neighbor does not have the skills to help them, therefore we must go to a professional for assistance. The Welfare system today works in such a way that professionals have made clients and recipients of the poor, robbing them of the support from their neighbors who now think that they are not skilled enough to help. This leads to isolation of the individuals. The poor begin to see themselves as people with special needs that can only be met by outsiders, but this can be changed through the ABCD process. A second power of ABCD is found in the local associations who should drive the community development process and leverage additional support and entitlements. These associations are the vehicles through which all a community's assets can be identified and then connected to another in ways that multiply their power and effectiveness. Users of the ABCD approach are deliberate in their intentions to lead by stepping back. Existing associations and networks (whether formal or informal) are assumed to be the source of constructive energy in the community. Community-driven development is done rather than development driven by external...

Independent Panel Review of the Doing Business report June 2013

•EXECUTIVE SUMMARY• In October 2012, the President of the World Bank Group appointed an independent panel of experts (“the Panel”) to review a broad range of issues surrounding the Doing Business report, which is now in its tenth year of publication. The Doing Business report attempts to provide a wide-ranging assessment of the business climate in 185 countries, primarily through the lens of formal regulations and procedures. It focuses on de jure (according to law) aspects of the business environment as they apply to small and medium-sized enterprises, with limited attention paid to implementation and customary practice. The report ranks economies on 10 areas of regulation, which the report calls “topics” – starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency. There is no other comparable project in terms of scale or scope. The Doing Business report is a flagship knowledge product of the World Bank (the Bank). As such, it needs to be an authoritative, scientifically rigorous and well-crafted publication that provides meaningful input into policy discussions on how to improve the legal and regulatory climate for business around the world. The Panel has analysed the publication’s contents over time and suggests that the Bank should continue publishing it, but that certain key considerations around its reliability and validity should be revisited. While the Doing Business report has played a role in conveying new information relevant to monitoring aspects of the business climate on a timely and internationally comparable basis, there are many challenges associated with it. Key among these are the relevance of the information gathered, the aspects being measured, the spectrum of businesses being analysed (currently only small and medium-sized enterprises), and the basis of its comparability across economies with different needs and at differing stages of development.

Guideline on Protective Stabilization for Pediatric Dental Patients

This guideline is based on a review of the current dental and medical literature related to the use of protective stabilization devices and restraint in the treatment of infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special health care needs in the dental office. An electronic search was conducted using PubMed® with the following: Terms: “protective stabilization and dentistry”, “protective stabilization and medical procedures”, “medical immobilization”, “restraint and dentistry”, “restraint and medical procedures”, “Papoose ® board and dentistry”, “Papoose® board and medical procedures”, “patient restraint for treatment”; Fields: all; Limits: within the last 10 years, humans, English, birth through 18. Thirty-four articles matched these criteria and were evaluated by title and/or abstract. When data did not appear sufficient or were inconclusive, recommendations were based upon expert and/or consensus opinion by experienced researchers and clinicians... ...program directors found a majority of dental schools spend fewer than five classroom hours on behavior guidance techniques.12 Furthermore, 42 percent of institutions reported fewer than 25 percent of students had one ‘hands-on’ experience with passive immobilization for non-sedated patients, while 27 percent of programs provided no clinical experiences.12 Therefore, graduates from dental school may lack knowledge and competency in the use of protective stabilization. Limited training in protective stabilization is not unique to dentistry as other health care disciplines have suggested a need for advanced training and guidelines.13,14 Protective stabilization is considered an advanced behavior guidance technique in dentistry.9 Attempts to restrain or stabilize patients without adequate training can leave not only the patient, but also the practitioner and staff, at risk for physical harm.15 Both didactic and hands-on mentored education beyond dental school is essential to ensure appropriate, safe, and effective implementation of protective stabilization of a patient unable to cooperate.9 Advanced training can be attained through an accredited post-doctoral program (eg, advanced education in general dentistry, general practice residency, or pediatric dentistry residency program) or an extensive and focused continuing education course that includes both didactic and mentored hands-on experiences.
