Guelph is a city with a population of 118,000 (City of Guelph, 2010) with agriculture and considered a safe city. But, what people don’t know is that Guelph is on the raise of having a community addicted to prescription pain killers, one in particular, Oxycodone. Narcotic pain relievers; Oxycodone, Morphine, and Dilaudid are surfacing on Guelph streets fast and Guelph police are trying to do everything they can to stop these drugs from destroying the streets of Guelph. “Approximately $70, 000 in drugs and cash has been seized as part of an ongoing effort to crack-down on the trafficking of prescription drugs in Guelph”(Project Scripts, 2010). This is a good sign that Guelph police are taking steps towards a safer city, and having special tactical teams that can crack-down on the trafficking of prescription drugs. If Guelph police can seize prescription drugs one bust at a time, it shows addicts and drug dealers that Guelph police are not going to let drugs destroy their city. Prescription drugs are a dangerous drug since they can be prescribed by doctors, people can get them from any corner drug store, and police can not arrest or seize drugs from a person if they have a prescription. Therefore, Guelph police involvement is critical in prescription drugs and its effect on people, spin off crimes due to prescribed drugs, and pharmacies/doctors being more aware of what they are prescribing.
Prescription drugs also known as pain killers are on the raise to being known as the most addicting drugs. Oxycodone, Morphine, and Fentanyl are all highly addicted drugs that people are taking that cause destruction to their lives and families. Police officers Carry Kurfoot (2010) states, “it is so sad seeing these people addicted to these pain killers when they were prescribed these narcotics because they were in an accident or went through surgery. It is just an ugly circle…...

Critical Thinking

...come before conclusions; conclusions do not always come after premises eg. Religious beliefs cannot be proven. If something is a matter of faith, it cannot be proven, and religious beliefs are obviously a matter of faith. Pay special attention to indicator words. If you see one of these, chances are good that there is an argument in the passage. Don’t forget, however, that a passage may contain an argument even though there are no indicator words in it. Truth versus Logical Strength: • Premises and conclusions may be true, or they may be false. • Evaluating the truth-value of premises and conclusions is distinct from evaluating the logical strength of arguments eg. Ryerson University is in Guelph, ON. The RAC is located within Ryerson U. Therefore, the RAC is located in Guelph, ON. Validity and Soundness Deductive Validity- An argument is deductively valid if and only if it is not possible for the premises to be true and the conclusion false i.e., if all the premises were true, the conclusion would have to be true too. An argument is deductively invalid if and only if it is not deductively valid. Deductively valid argument: All bachelors are unmarried. Ivan is a bachelor. Therefore, Ivan is unmarried. Invalid argument: Some politicians smoke marijuana. Jones is a politician. Therefore, Jones smokes marijuana • A deductive argument is intended to provide conclusive support for its conclusion. • A deductive argument that succeeds in providing conclusive......

Hammond

...2. A description of the main issues raised in the case from the point of view of logistics management This report outlines issues Hammond Manufacturing’s Transformer group faced in cooperation within the entire Hammond Group. The main issue was described by Hammond’s management as late delivery from the cabinetry plant to the Guelph plant what displeased customers and caused numerous delays on production site. All problems can be divided in 5 general groups and will be described in detail further: 1. Forecasting Issues 2. Production Scheduling Issues 3. Organizational Issues 4. Process Strategy Issues 5. New Demand Management Issues 2.1. Forecasting Issues The sales team created forecasts in October for the following calendar year by product lines for all products, based on this forecast the both plants planned their productions and orders accordingly. The company revised its forecasts on a quarterly basis. Production planners reviewed performance monthly and weekly then changed the production schedule when its original forecast proved inaccurate. But frequent changes in customer demand and design caused serious production disorder and delays in orders fulfilment. Creating a new production schedule on a monthly basis did not help as the supply chain had been already filled in based on the old one. Moreover, forecasting inaccuracy resulted in too little or too much inventory, which was not enough to fulfil unexpected sales demands. 2.2. Production Scheduling......

...video. In 2005, the tour took place over four weekends in April and went to four communities Peterborough, North Bay, Thunder Bay and Sudbury). Each community had a 90-minute screening and a half-day workshop. A promotional poster and program guide, in both official languages, were made available free of charge by OAC to presenters and the public. The program guide included a critical essay contextualizing the MOBILE MEDIA tour within Ontario’s contemporary media arts practice. The practical and comprehensive workshop following each screening was facilitated by a group of media artists, the tour coordinator (Annette Mangaard) and an OAC granting officer. In 2006, the tour was expanded to 11 communities (Attawapiskat, Fort Albany, Guelph, Hamilton, Moose Factory, Moosonee, North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Timmins, Whitefish Lake First Nation). The screenings consisted of two 30-minute programs, curated through an open call to programmers, and one 30-minute program of work by local artists. The tour was co-presented by local individuals or organizations who provided the venue, screening equipment and volunteer labour and promoted the event to their community. Once again, a promotional poster and program guide were provided by the OAC. Filmmakers, programmers, the tour coordinators (Annette Mangaard and Cheryl Rondeau) and an OAC granting officer participated in Q&A sessions with audiences following the screenings. The tours have been successful in......

What Are Three Main Factors We Should Consider When Making Our Food Choices?

...at their best”(The 6 Healthy Habits.com, 2012). If we remain ignorant towards health factors we may increase our risk of problems with our health and risk of being undernourished. Undernourishment leaves us open to illnesses and even early death. Undernourishment doesn’t necessarily refer to people who don’t have enough to eat, as there are an increase number of people who are overfed but remain undernourished. The Guelph Mercury(2013), a newspaper in Canada, expresses that we only have to “simply take a look around” to see how dysfunctional the human bodies have become. This statement is referring to the issue with the increase in overweight individuals in our society today. They further state that “our fast-paced lives have created a culture of convenience. Healthy, real food, made fresh every day, takes too much time. Consequently, people turn to what is quick and easy, often relying on processed foods that are high in sugar, salt and fats”(The Guelph Mercury, 2013). Ignorance towards health factors and opting for food which have undesirable elements such as saturated fats, high salts and sugar levels will lead us as a society of deeper health despair. Additionally, the financial aspects of food including cost, have also seen people being forced to neglect health factors. The most significant aspect of food choice is ......

Cgr Case

...Cruikshank, Garth, and Romano Case: Answers 1) After completing the HREM B.Comm program, the quickest way to achieve an AACI designation is to complete the AACI via PGCV Fast-Track Program. This route stipulates that the student must have a business degree including some real estate specific courses and permits the student to achieve an AACI designation after taking three to five additional courses. More specifically, upon completion of the HREM B.Comm program at the University of Guelph I would be allowed to transfer two of my previously earned credits, therefore, I would only be expected to take four additional courses to achieve an AACI designation as opposed to other business students with no background in real estate specific courses who would have to take six courses. 2) At the time the case was written there was an overall poor real estate market in Ontario. The Canadian Government was the largest landowner and tenant in the national capital (NCR) region, therefore, this made the NCR less susceptible to economic fluctuations and as a result, more attractive to large institutional investors. However, due to the real estate boom a decade earlier, there was an oversupply in the Ottawa office market. Rents for commercial office space were reduced by approximately $10 per square foot and were often coupled with attractive packages (e.g., rent free periods). Revenues and profits were low as occupancy rates were on the decline and vacancy rates were rising due to......

Why Do Students Cram?

Philip introduced the class to the concept of how a critical analysis and astute observation of key words of the stem in multiple choice exams can provide valuable clues to the correct answer. For further details, please see “Answer Questions Systematically”, below. The following sections have been excerpted from http://www.lib.uoguelph.ca/get-assistance/studying/exam-prep/multiple-choice-exams. All credit belongs to University of Guelph Learning Commons Library. Staying on Top of Your Courses Since multiple choice exams are common in courses which cover a lot of factual information, the most important planning strategy is to stay on top of your coursework. If you keep up with readings and assignments, attend lectures and take thorough notes, and set aside time to integrate and summarize your text and lecture notes on a regular basis, you'll be well on your way to preparing effectively for multiple choice exams. Weekly review right from the beginning of the semester can drastically reduce the amount of time you'll need to spend relearning old material before the exam. We recommend that you begin each study session with a quick review of the material......

Psychology

...mindfulness and its role in one’s psychological well-being, it is important to note that the phenomenon is not only a theoretical construct but also both a practice and a psychological process. It can be considered a practice because one can cultivate mindfulness through meditation and it is a psychological process in that one can be mindful or sensitive to psychological, somatic and environmental cues (Brown and Ryan, 2003). Mindfulness based stress reduction, for example, is a medicinal program rooted from meditational spiritual practices (Brown and Kasser, 2005).  To demonstrate the concept as a practice, Counselling Services at both University of Guelph and Conestoga College offer mindfulness therapy groups and learning strategies around mindfulness and meditation for those experiencing more temporary struggle (University of Guelph & Conestoga College, 2014). Meanwhile, there are individuals who have decided to practice mindfulness on a daily basis and this includes The Power of Now author Eckhart Tolle, as well as spiritual leaders Rumi and the Dalai Lama (Tolle, 1999). Mindfulness can thus apply to nearly every domain of life, including personal or spiritual growth, therapy, music, art and sports – which are all essential to one’s well-being (Mikulas, 2014). In considering that mindfulness is largely about being ‘present’ and is characterized by clarity and vividness of current experiences, self-regulation can help to examine the place of awareness and attention......
