Communication at Pleasant View Lodge
There are many different ways communication is handled in companies. The nature of my employment is that I am a qualified medication aide-short for a Q.M.A. A qualified medication aide (Q.M.A.) administers non-injectable medications, assist in care of residents, crush medication to be administered, apply topical treatments, and deliver medication in a timely manner. All patients are under the supervision of a registered nurse. A qualified medication aide is required to remain educated on medications, the drug class of medications, and to know the dangers of combining certain medications. They should remain CPR certified and know what to do upon an overdose.
Every employer has a chain of command that they follow for instructions on what to do next. The chain of command in an assisted living workplace is very simple. I will start from top to bottom on the command chart. The administrator is the head over everyone employed at the facility. Next, the administrator is director of social services, dietary director, director of nursing, activity director, maintenance director, housekeeping/laundry, business office, and admissions. The director dietary is over the kitchen employees which are the cooks and dietary aides. They refer all their questions and concerns to the director of dietary.
The activity director is the person who does activities with all the alert and oriented residents. The activity aide usually leads most of those activities and the director of activities fills in when he/she is off work. The maintenance director is over the maintenance staff for all the fixing around the facility. Housekeeping/Laundry is over the housekeeping/laundry staff and they are responsible for linens being clean and the residents personal clothing being washed. The business office is in charge of the human resources and…...

The Civil Rights Movement

...comment that this man had said, it is absolutely true of how the public viewed the civil rights movement, it was a fear, a fear of uncertainty of how to live with each other after being segregated for so long. In during this time the term ‘white backlash’ was used as a term used to give an indication that their voting habits were affected by the changes that has occurred in the civil rights act. Martin Luther King Jr. displayed a method of non violent protests which he referred to as a method of peaceful protest by oppressed people. From the article I read I quote “In a classical non violent situation the oppressed engage in mass demonstrations or in one or more forms of civil disobedience so as to cause the oppressor to retaliate. The object is to plague the oppressor by filling up the jails or cause him to engage in violence on the streets.” The Negro community also stated that the bringing of violence to themselves was to take it from the jail cells and the dark ally’s out to the open for the whole world to see. This non violent protest method that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had used during this civil rights movement was probably one of the most powerful tools in this time and gave him a tremendous advantage when the public actually seen how blacks were treated in the south. Being spread through media and television now the once topic that was not to be discussed had finally had light shed upon it. “Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts.” Dr. Martin Luther......

Banking Concept of Education

..."fill" the students with the contents of his narration—contents which are detached from reality.” (Freire 2) Another point being made in Freire’s writing from this quote is that the information that the students are learning will not help them in the real world. From this the concept of the oppressors (teachers) and the oppressed (students) becomes clearer. The oppressed are taught to conform to society’s way and stay oppressed as that is the intention of the oppressors. The Banking Concept of Education is designed in a way to keep the creativeness of the students to a minimal as well as provide an environment to where the students accept the orders of the teacher and do not question from wear that authority is being derived. “The capability of banking education to minimize or annul the students’ creative power and to stimulate their credulity serves the interests of the oppressors, who care neither to have the world revealed nor to see it transformed.” (Freire 9) This type of education solely serves the purpose of the oppressors to where the oppressors are keeping the people oppressed. The oppressors act upon any attempt to chance this system as this situation is quite beneficial, “The oppressors use their "humanitarianism" to preserve a profitable situation. Thus they react almost instinctively against any experiment in education which stimulates the critical faculties and is not content with a partial view of reality but always seeks out the ties which link one point to......

Mlk vs Malcom X

...courage in wanting to achieve one goal; equality for all. Even though both men fought for the same cause, Martin Luther King Jr. took his approach using nonviolence, nonviolence resistance and helping the oppressor to understand that what they are doing is morally wrong. Marin Luther King Jr. knew that nonviolence was not nonviolence was not an outlook that everyone shared. His vision was a future where everyone is living a free life. In his famous speech I Have A Dream King states, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judges but the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Using violence will only cause eve more problems rather than trying to help the situation. Instead of trying to achieve a goal everyone just wants to seek revenge. It is a never ending cycle that for future generations will create more complicated problems. The world will be filled with hatred. The battle for freedom will only become more difficult. Through nonviolence resistance King’s goal is to reveal the immoralities of what is happening. Showing the oppressor that his actions are wrong, will help him understand what they are fighting for. Martin’s principle shows that one should not be aggressive toward the oppressor, but he should show them that they should not turn to violence, but resist. Not using violence shows that no man has done anything wrong, or is it necessary to use violence to express a wrong doing. The......

Imperialism in Shooting an Elephant by George Orwell Themes

...all over the story at many points, it causes tensions between the natives, it affects both sides, it promotes immorality to gain the oppressors needs, and it makes people such as the officer take decisions that they ought not to in their daily lives. For example Orwell states that “the British Raj as an unbreakable tyranny...prostate people”, and he goes on in the same paragraph mentioning the “bayonet into a Buddhist priest’s guts”. “feelings like these are normal by the products of imperialism ask any anglo indian official” Imperialism also promotes racism, prejudice, and resentment. The oppressors continues to break rules and disregards rights in order to stay in power and to show control of the land and people. This increases resentment in natives as shown in the story that even though the elephant does not have any strength the officer wants to make sure that it dies, “lands a bullet after a bullet to put the beast to end”, meaning the oppressor wants to make sure that enough damage is done to those oppressed that they are completely broken and have no ways to resent or to retaliate. Even though the elephant stood their and was calm the officer still made the decision of shooting it basing on the “yellow faces” as he mentions would have thought of him as weak or fool if he hadn’t shot the elephant. This certainly shows that the oppressor would do anything in his power regardless of it being right or wrong, moral or immoral, humane or inhumane, etc...to make himself......

Free Will; Do We Have It or Not

...belong to England. At the time it may appear, from the outside, that the officers were helping the Burmese because they too were against oppressors; however, from the inside, they too were trying to annex other countries, this show how British were also oppressors. One could see that he didn't want to shoot the elephant. “It seemed to me that it would be murder to shoot him. I was not squeamish about killing animals. But I had never shot an elephant and never wanted to. Somehow it always seems worse to kill a large animal." This shows that he really didn't want to shoot the animal. It was only out of pressure and to gain respect. He was put on the spot because the natives of the country viewed white men as being cruel and they were looking on expecting him to shoot. He felt pressured it's almost like he was forced into a role that he isn't quite made for. But convention has forced him to pull the trigger. In the essay “Shooting an Elephant,” George Orwell describes an internal conflict between his personal morals and his duty to his country. Orwell’s decision to kill the elephant is a direct result of oppression. Oppression perhaps goes deeper than the average man would imagine, noticeably hindering even the lives of the oppressors. Orwell’s moral values are challenged in many different ways, ironically enough while he too was the oppressor. Oppression is shown by Orwell through the burden of servitude placed upon him by England: “I had already made up my mind that......

Shooting an Elephant

...therefore they feel that they have a duty to help the natives and turn them into people like themselves. Burma, where the story takes place is a buddistic country in south of Asia. In the beginning of the 19th century Burma was occupied by England. The narrator has a very certain attitude towards imperialism. He says it is an evil thing “of course- I was all for the Burmese and all against their oppressors, the British”. He knows and he can see that every day, that imperialism is about having power, oppressing people and abusing them. He sees the British supremacy as a tyranny and he knows that not only the Burmese people are the target of the imperialism, but he is also a part of it. When you live in a poor country and people from far away arrives and thinks that they have the right to show you how you need to live, and how your society needs to be like, it causes hate and disrespect. The protagonist knows it, and he can in a way understand the Burmese peoples laughing, sneering and bullying. He can understand their anger and that they want to take revenge and fight back the oppressors when they have the possibility. The 1Shooting an Elephant story-teller is stuck between two evils, he hates the natives, he hates his job and he hates the Empire “All I knew was that I was stuck between my hatred of the empire I served and my rage against the evil-spirited little beasts who tried to make my job impossible.” It is an evil circle because of the poverty and......

Study of the Negro

...and still are being treated but it is not as bad now than it was before. This is because the oppressor has put a negative mind set into the Negros and other races that Negros are worthless, which put the Negros in their own class. The also oppressor teaches the Negros that they has no worth-while past and that his race has nothing significant since the beginning of time. Also the oppressor always reminds them that they will never be anything. The education of a Negro was carefully directed because they didn’t want them to achieve anything. They were told even if they were taught anything it would not work out no matter how good they do. Negros were schooled instead of being educated, meaning they were being trained opposed to being taught were you can question what you’re being taught and that is what the oppressor didn’t want. Since they were schooled they did everything by the rules. For example if you tell a Negro to always use the back door that’s what he would do and if there is no back door then the Negro will create a back door because the Negro was trained that was the only way in. Once the oppressor had control over the Negros, there is nothing that can be done to change that. If the oppressor could determine what they will think the oppressor would not need to worry about what they will do because he has “mind control”. They had no control because they thought that the oppressor was right. The Negros were put down and treated so badly they started to hate themselves......

Freire and Loewen Comparrisons

...result from their intervention in the world as transformers of that world. The more completely they accept the passive role imposed on them, the more they tend simply to adapt to the world as it is and to the fragmented view of reality deposited in them. The capability of banking education to minimize or annul the students’ creative power and to stimulate their credulity serves the interests of the oppressors, who care neither to have the world revealed nor to see it transformed. The oppressors use their "humanitarianism" to preserve a profitable situation. Thus they react almost instinctively against any experiment in education which stimulates the critical faculties and is not content with a partial view of reality but always seeks out the ties which link one point to another and one problem to another. Indeed, the interests of the oppressors lie in "changing the consciousness of the oppressed, not the situation which oppresses them," for the more the oppressed can be led to adapt to that situation, the more easily they can be dominated. To achieve this end, the oppressors use the banking concept of education in conjunction with a paternalistic social action apparatus, within which the oppressed receive the euphemistic title of "welfare recipients." They are treated as individual cases, as marginal men who deviate from the general configuration of a "good, organized, and just" society. The oppressed are regarded as the pathology of the healthy society, which must......

Law as Oppressor

...Law As Oppressor Oppression is the exercise of authority or power in a burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner. There have always been examples of oppression in the history of mankind. The baffling truth is that most of the oppressions in the history are done using laws as means of discrimination to oppress certain group, race or gender. Law is a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by a controlling authority. The existence of laws is fundamental to a society governed by the rule of law. However, the creation and enforcement of laws does not constitute or enable a society to be governed in true justice. It is entirely possible for a legal order to be partial, securing its protections and benefits only to some and used as weapon of oppression to others. One of the reasons for this is because laws are created mostly by the privileged people or the elected officials who in some ways are puppets of the wealthy and privileged people. The minority and poor people are always victimized because the laws are created by the wealthy and privileged. Most of the third world countries suffer from this dysfunctional system of inequality and oppression. But it is surprising and irony that country like United States, which is considered to be land of freedom and equality and the country built by the oppressed people who migrated here to escape the oppression, have used law as mean of oppression. In the civilized society, the oppression cannot be......

AKA “lovelessness”. 7 o False Charity: seek to increase the viability of charity by reinforcing the dehumanization of those seeking charity. 8 • True Generosity: only meaningful insofar as liberation is directed to overthrowing dehumanization/injustice. 9 o Seeks to diminish the conditions wherein charity is viable. 10 o Only attained by the efforts of the oppressed. 11 • The Insight of the Oppressed: 12 o Awareness of an oppressive society 13 o Firsthand experience with suffering 14 o Understand the importance of Liberation 15 • Sub-oppressors: Oppressed group members engaged in the act of oppression. 16 o The necessary conflation of the notion of “manhood” with oppressor.

Postcolonial Analysis

...Prospero keeps him captive and keeps him from going anywhere else on the island. In conclusion, oppression is a strong power to have as well as a very dangerous one. Oppression not only gives the oppressor more power in time, but it also makes the oppressed lose themselves eventually and it allows them to be stuck in a certain way of life and see barriers that they are not able to overcome due to what is determined by someone else that is only thinking about themselves and their own well-being. Oppression in literature shows us that in any era, there will always be someone that believes they have more power and control over someone else or over a group of people if the oppressor truly believes they are owed this power. In some instances, people who are very confident in what they believe can get others to believe it as well. In both of these readings, the characters that are the oppressors believe no one is above them, therefore, they are able to control those around them and those around them eventually think it is normal so as generations grow, that is all they know to be true of their life. Unless someone decides to stand up against an oppressor, or someone of a different mentality can take over once the oppressor is gone, this will be allowed to continue for as long as the oppressor is alive.

Cycle of Oppression

...of the oppressor/ this is the oppressor’s language/ yet I need it to talk to you,” Rich depicts the paradoxical nature of society’s colonization of the mind and her conscious effort to be free of such mindset. Rich is fully aware of the knowledge that she is citing and the language that she is speaking is tainted with the oppressor’s – society’s – ideals. Yet she also believes that these two elements are needed in today’s everyday communication. It is dangerous when an act as natural as interacting with others can be oppressive, because language is an extremely powerful tool. All forms of languages, such as verbal exchange, body language and sign languages to name a few, are capable of changing perspectives of others. When used appropriately, people can use languages to end the outcomes of mind colonizing, such as racial stereotypes and racial superiority. However, most people abuse their ability to connect with others and use communication as means of perpetuating judgment of “others” and marginalizing certain groups, which ultimately results in a nonstop cycle of oppression. In the verses “…and they take the book away/ love and fear in a house/ knowledge of the oppressor,” Rich describes how society condemns individuality by “taking the book away” and labeling it oppressive. Rich also points out an important notion regarding the cycle of oppression: the oppressor is also oppressed. “Love and fear in the house” can be used to describe both the oppressed and the oppressor.......

Weapons of the Weak

...Maiyo Shahrawan POLB91 University of Toronto Kevin Edmonds 03/10/16 Analyzing and Deciphering James Scott’s Concept of “Weapons Of The Weak” There is an array of divergent groups, collectives and associations around the globe that consistently proceed to spread their opinions and display their presence in the largest scale possible. Among these factions include, social movements, social non-movements and civil society organizations. These groups have historically been successful in overcoming their oppressors and doing what is in their nature to complete the necessary tasks in order to have their voice heard by those they wish to protest to. Examples of mainstream social movements include Black Lives Matter, Animal Rights Movements, Klu Klux Klan, etc (Moore, 1992: 133). However, although social movements have been successful before, the very dependence of their success, lays in certain specific aspects surrounding these social movements. These conditions include the status of the society these movements are operating in, the condition of the relationship between the government and the citizens of these movements, and also it depends on the rights and laws that exist within the society. For example, in wealthier societies, citizens have the right and freedom to protest and are confident in indulging in contentious politics because their laws and rights causes them to feel that they hold a sense of protection from the government. However in other more poverty-stricken......

Imperialism Affects the Oppressed as Well as the Oppressor

...Imperialism Affects the Oppressed as Well as the Oppressor Hidden within a great book come many different messages, but one important example in George Orwell's Shooting the Elephant shows imperialism affects the oppressed as well as the oppressor. Because it is an immoral relationship of power, it compels the oppressor to act immorally to keep up appearances that he is right. George Orwell realizes that the British Raj which he serves is "an unbreakable tyranny" (Orwell, paragraph 2) yet despises the people he oppresses for allowing him to do so. On the one hand he is regarded as a wise ruler, but on the other he knows he is wrong in what he does but must behave in such a way to disguise this. There have been many situations like this throughout history, where a person or group of people have to go against what they feel is moral, or right, in order to gain respect and/or power. I feel like it happens all too often in the world today and even throughout the past. People’s ideas about right and wrong generally reflect their own selfish interests or the interests of the group they belong to. Groups with conflicting interests often have different ideas about right and wrong, and these differences can escalate into power struggles. When the struggle for power is not restrained by laws or morals, then whichever group gains power will usually try to further its own interests at the expense of everyone else. The powerless and oppressed can try to resist, but unless they......

Letter from Birmingham

...saying that their lack of doing nothing is just as worse as the white radicals. Also he talks about how freedom is never willingly given up by the oppressor, and that something must be done to bring justice to these problems. This letter gave many whites a chance to see the demonstrations from his point of view. It pointed out all the hypocrisy that the whites brought upon the African Americans. His wording of this letter is what really brings him message straight to the heart. It shows the injustice that he has come across, and also shows that he is willing to give everything to bring justice. 1. What single line or sentence provoked the strongest response from you? What ideas and emotions does this provoke? “Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever. The urge for freedom will eventually come.” This line is obviously strong. It is straight to the point and has no underlying message which is why I believe it is powerful. The other part that makes it power, is that it is 100% true. All throughout history, and the beginning of time, the oppressed always manage to find equality and manage to get out. Martin Luther King was a man with a sight and motive for equality. He knew what he had to do, and through words and phrases like this, it brings realization to the eyes of the oppressors. Oppressors are in a mind set of stubbornness which blinds them from the truth. They do not realize the horrors and cruelty they are bringing on by the......
