ENG - College Writing 4 In this course, students acquire the writing competence necessary for conducting and presenting research. A variety of assignments, beginning with personal reflections, build upon one another, as students develop ideas that respond to, critique, and synthesize the positions of others. Students systematize and organize knowledge in ways that will help them in all of their courses. The course also emphasizes the elements of good writing style, appropriate grammar and mechanics, clarity of language, and logical and cohesive development.
Elephas Proboscidea phylogeny based on Shoshani Only when Elephas disappeared from Africa did Loxodonta become dominant once again, this time in the form of the modern species.
Elephas diversified into new species in Asia, such as E. The skull grew larger, especially the cranium, while the neck shortened to provide better support for the skull. The increase in size led to the development and elongation of the mobile trunk to provide reach.
The number of premolarsincisors and canines decreased. Only in the last million years or so did they return to a diet mainly consisting of C3 trees and shrubs. Some proboscideans developed tusks from their lower incisors.
Some DNA studies suggest Mammuthus Altruism in nursing more closely related to the former   while others point to the latter.
Dwarf elephant Skeleton of a Cretan dwarf elephant Several species of proboscideans lived on islands and experienced insular dwarfism. This occurred primarily during the Pleistocene when some elephant populations became isolated by fluctuating sea levels, although dwarf elephants did exist earlier in the Pliocene.
These elephants likely grew smaller on islands due to a lack of large or viable predator populations and limited resources. By contrast, small mammals such as rodents develop gigantism in these conditions. Dwarf proboscideans are known to have lived in Indonesiathe Channel Islands of Californiaand several islands of the Mediterranean.
Other descendants of the straight-tusked elephant existed in Cyprus. Dwarf elephants of uncertain descent lived in CreteCycladesand Dodecanese while dwarf mammoths are known to have lived in Sardinia.
This species reached a height of 1. The average male African bush elephant is 3. Asian elephants are smaller, with males being 2. African forest elephants are the smallest extant species, on average being 2. African elephants have 21 pairs of ribs, while Asian elephants have 19 or 20 pairs.
The back of the skull is flattened and spread out, creating arches that protect the brain in every direction. These cavities give the inside of the skull a honeycomb -like appearance. The cranium is particularly large and provides enough room for the attachment of muscles to support the entire head.
The lower jaw is solid and heavy. A durable nictitating membrane protects the eye globe. The animal's field of vision is compromised by the location and limited mobility of the eyes. Like all mammals, an elephant can raise or lower its temperature a few degrees from the average in response to extreme environmental conditions.
The ear flaps, or pinnaecontain numerous blood vessels called capillaries. Warm blood flows into the capillaries, helping to release excess body heat into the environment.
This occurs when the pinnae are still, and the animal can enhance the effect by flapping them. Larger ear surfaces contain more capillaries, and more heat can be released.
Of all the elephants, African bush elephants live in the hottest climates, and have the largest ear flaps. It contains up toseparate muscle fascicleswith no bone and little fat. These paired muscles consist of two major types: The former are divided into dorsals, ventralsand laterals while the latter are divided into transverse and radiating muscles.
The muscles of the trunk connect to a bony opening in the skull. The nasal septum is composed of tiny muscle units that stretch horizontally between the nostrils. Cartilage divides the nostrils at the base. The muscles work both with and against each other. A unique proboscis nerve — formed by the maxillary and facial nerves — runs along both sides of the trunk.
The Asian elephant has only one, and relies more on wrapping around a food item and squeezing it into its mouth. One elephant has been observed to graze by kneeling on its front legs, raising on its hind legs and taking in grass with its lips.Start studying Nursing Unit 2B.

This policy articulates the legal obligations and professional expectations for physicians with respect to medical assistance in dying, as set out in federal legislation, provincial legislation, and relevant College policies.4 The policy includes the eligibility criteria for medical assistance in dying and provides a process map for managing requests for medical assistance in dying.
In nursing, altruism often serves as a motivating factor and basis for praxis. Altruism can have negative consequences, especially pathological altruism and burnout.
The Spiritual Competency Resource Center provides access to online resources that enhance the cultural sensitivity of mental health professionals.
Spirituality is now accepted as an important component of cultural competence for mental health professionals.
These resources include online courses, audio-visual resources, articles, and live workshops.
Etymology. The word "elephant" is based on the Latin elephas (genitive elephantis) ("elephant"), which is the Latinised form of the Greek ἐλέφας (elephas) (genitive ἐλέφαντος (elephantos)), probably from a non-Indo-European language, likely Phoenician. It is attested in Mycenaean Greek as e-re-pa (genitive e-re-pa-to) in Linear B syllabic script.
At a time when British nursing has been under scrutiny for an apparent lack of compassion in education and practice, this paper based offers a perspective on the notions of vocation and altruism in nursing.
