...Children of a 70-year-old mother want to know if she should be able to start driving again. It’s been years since she has last driven and when she was an active driver she got into many accidents. She also has a history of bad hearing, arthritis, and alcoholism. The mother’s therapist says that she should make her own decisions and everyone else should support her choices. I think the children to realize that though the therapist may have good opinions on how to handle situations, id doesn’t mean their always right, Especially in this case. I realize this is an unfortunate answer to hear but if this were my mother, it would never happen. The risks seem to out way the benefits for everyone in this particular situation. She really does create a higher risk of putting herself or others in greater danger driving on the road. You mentioned she frequently got herself into accidents as a frequent driver while she was younger. Well how could you expect things to be and different or better now? Now that her hearing has gone bad she will have an even harder time picking up on serious warnings. Things like incoming trains, ambulances, fire trucks or other emergency vehicles will be harder to pick up on then before. Her arthritis can lead to having even slower reaction times then her normal routine. Finally, her alcoholism is probably the worst scenario out of all these factors. More people die from drunken related deaths then almost anything else. Even if she......

...Florida The other night I was sitting by the blazing fire eating a juicy orange, and the sweet smell reminded me of my vacations to Florida over winter break. I will never forget the fresh smell of the air when we stepped off the airplane. I could see my grandparents from across the crowded airport. I would always be so excited to step on the soft, white, sandy beach. The first thing I would do is change into my bathing suit and run out to the beach. My sister and I would spend the day splashing in the salty water, until we were too tired to keep our heads above the water. Then we would lie on the soft damp sand and take a nap. It felt so good to have the bright sun blazing down on me. My favorite thing to do was build gigantic sand castles on the beach. My sister and I would have contests to see who could build the tallest sand castle. The grains of sand glistened in the sun like a diamond ring. I will never forget how the gigantic orange trees towered over me. Every day my grandpa would pick me an orange; they were so juicy! Every time I think about an orange, my mouth waters, and I think of how sweet they taste. Normally bedtime was a problem for me, but in Florida I fell right to sleep every night. I would leave the windows wide open, and I would fall asleep to the waves crashing on the sandy beach. I could hear the birds chirping outside my window along with the rustling of the wind. In the mornings we would walk to this little breakfast place......

Florida Summers

...Florida Summers Each summer my entire family on my mothers’ side piles into a packed conversion van, a mini van, and an SUV and travel the 495.8 miles from Maiden, North Carolina to the Royal Floridian hotel in Daytona Beach, Florida. (Mapquest Maps) The following week is filled with excitement, relaxation, and like most other families, a little tension too, but most importantly, bonding. My family has done this the week of the 4th of July every year for the past 20+ years. Everyone in my family knows it is not acceptable to skip the annual family vacation. I am eighteen years old, and I have been to Florida eighteen times thus far in my life. It is a tradition. Especially after working full time jobs and striving through schoolwork for nine months, everyone is ready for that little break where everyone has that place where they go to escape the pressures and worries of life. There is always that one spot that can soothe all of your problems and trouble times of stress. Each time we go, more and more aspects of the trip take on ritualistic, almost sacred, significance. Indeed, going to Florida is a tradition, and one that I have come to cherish very much. While the week holds many events that change us as a family, the car ride down there is the most memorable. This specific car ride challenges us as a family and pushes us to put aside our differences and learn to accommodate others particular personalities. The main thing I will always remember from this......

Prohibition in Florida

...Prohibition in Florida Your Name Professor Name and Class Prohibition is defined as the act of forbidding something by law. In Florida the prohibition alcohol encountered many issues due to the close proximity of neighboring countries and the illegal import of the alcohol. Florida’s coastal line was one of the most prominent factors in its battle during the prohibition of alcohol days. The thought of prohibition of alcohol was proposed to the citizens, by the government and the church as an attempt to reduce crime, improve health, and protect the women and children in society (www.floridahistory.org). The government officials went into the neighborhoods and town meetings and told the families and homeowners that prohibiting alcohol would make their neighborhoods safer and the pastors preached about alcohol and the bible to their congregations instilling the fear of displeasing God. The whites would be concerned of their safety and power and restricted blacks from alcohol whether they were free or still in slavery due to their concerns of having less power or being ineffective in slave ownership. In any effort, their attempts to abolish alcohol led to many more illegal operations and the people of the Florida are became very creative about finding ways to obtain the illegal alcohol. The 18th amendment was established and declared the sale, production, and transport of alcohol illegal. The amendment became law on January 17th, 1920. The advocates of the......

Florida Air

...Florida Air, Inc. 1. Evaluate Florida Air’s search for capital. What, if any, key mistakes were made? -Dan failed to fully utilize high profile networks of Scott and Henry, who were both graduates of an Ivy League School (Did Scott graduate from Ivy League School?). Also, Dan did not try to reach out to his network he established while he was buying and selling airplanes. Even if there was no one interested in their direct network, perhaps someone in their network knew someone who might be interested. Scott later contacted his 100 alumni later but rather passively; instead of calling to actively initiate a conversation, he mailed out information. -Also, the team initially decided that the best group to approach for capital would be the ones with airline experience to appreciate the benefits of their idea. However, we think the investors do not necessarily needed to have that airline experience, as long as they saw potential and some benefits of the venture. By selecting that "best pool" we believe the team limited themselves to a small group of potential investors. -The team did not do enough research and did not come up with a well-structured business plan. When potential investor candidate Jason Daulton had asked seemingly basic questions about how Flordia air will handle maintenance costs, scheduling, fuel efficiency economics, underlying......

... however, designed to support extensive driving. Other safety features found on highways may include guard rails, street lights and electronic notification signs. These features, as well as vehicle safety technologies, are in place to protect drivers from the dangers inherent in driving. However, the number one cause of collisions is driver error. Traffic safety is the primary responsibility of all highway users. You can carry out this responsibility by practicing safe and courteous driving behavior. Texas has a highway system that is considered to be one of the most extensive systems in the United States. Annually, Texas drivers will log over 187 billion miles. In recent years, the state of Texas has seen the numbers of traffic fatalities increase. Two primary contributors to this increase are speeding and driving while intoxicated (DWI). Any driver in the United States can reduce fatalities and injuries by simple acts such as using safety belts. If we all contribute to responsible driving, we can drastically decrease highway fatalities. It begins with YOU. Make a personal commitment today to carefully pay attention to the content of this course and to study the Texas Driver Handbook. Do this to develop the skills and knowledge that you need to become a safe driver. Basic knowledge of traffic laws provides a driver with the foundation to formulate informed, legal, and responsible decisions to reduce risk.

...terrain” and is susceptible to a sinkhole event. The most damage from sinkholes tends to occur in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. In west-central Florida and elsewhere, their increasing frequency of sinkholes corresponds to the accelerated development of ground-water and land resources. Most of Florida is prone to sinkhole formation because it is underlain by thick carbonate deposits that are susceptible to dissolution by circulating ground water. Florida’s principal source of freshwater, ground water, moves into and out of storage in the carbonate aquifers (most productive). Development of these ground-water resources (municipal, industrial and agricultural water supplies) creates regional ground-water-level declines that play a role in accelerating sinkhole formation, thereby increasing susceptibility of the aquifers to contamination from surfacewater drainage. Such interactions between surface-water and ground-water resources in Florida play a critical and complex role in the long-term management of water resources and ecosystems of Florida’s wetlands SINKHOLES ARE A NATURALLY OCCURRING IN FLORIDA LANDSCAPE The exposed land mass that constitutes the Florida peninsula is only part of a larger, mostly submerged carbonate platform that is partially capped with a sequence of relatively insoluble sand and clay deposits. In west-central Florida, the relation between the carbonate surface and the mantling deposits plays an......
