The changes in government programs such as Medicare caused a reduction of gross patient service revenue. Research funding was not covering 100% its own expenses, having to use clinical revenues to cover them and subsequently affecting education programs. Analysis Although well distinguished for their highly specialized tertiary and quaternary care, both hospitals faced similar rate drops in the percentage of utilized beds. BWH rate dropped from 88.7% in 1988 to 79.6% in 1993. At MGH the decline was 87.6% in 1988 to 78.4% in 1993 as well.
The Every Child Matters initiative was launched in 2003 by the government and has become one of the most far-reaching policy initiatives to be released in the ten years.

By early 70’s, welfare costs had risen, and the Child Support Enforcement (CSE) Program was a way of gaining financial support from noncustodial parent of Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) families to reduce welfare costs ("Child support," 2002). Congress has visited the issue of child support occasionally, therefore eventually strengthening child support enforcement. CES’s message today is that all noncustodial fathers should pay child support. Its approach is that nonpayment of child support is a matter of violation, not lack of ability, and it overlooks the limited resources of noncustodial fathers to pay child support. Any research on the subject of child support system tends to report poverty stricken single-parent homes, and the
In the years 1930 – 1932 Bruning had lost popularity as he reduced unemployment benefit and increased taxes, all the time not having the majority backing of the reichstag (so he was dependant on Hindenburg's decree). Following the advice of Army officer Von Schleicer, Bruning was removed by Hindenburg, meaning a threat to Hitler's future power was eliminated. After this, Von Papen (a friend of Hindenburg) was appointed Chancellor. He was leader of the centre party but only had 68 supporters in the reichstag and like Schleicer, was dependant on the government by decree. In an attempt to gain more support, Von Papen held an election, only to be bested by the Nazis, who won by a landslide of 230 seats and as result, became the largest party of the Reichstag.
Assess the view that children today are the victims of adult oppression. Conflict theorists, such as Marxists and Feminists, and childhood liberationists believe that in 2013 children are the victims of adult oppression, however, March of Progress theorists would argue that they are being protected to a necessary extent and not oppressed. One main view that Conflict theorists have is that due to the fear created by the media through stories such as Madeline McCann and Holly and Jessica, parents are now controlling their children to an unnecessary extent. For example, before these events many more children were allowed to play in the streets at a young age, however, now many children stay indoors and ‘speak’ to their friends through social
We have always wanted our children to feel free to talk to us about what ails them. As I read the article, I realized that we (my husband and I) base many of our childhood experiences on the way we think it should be with our son. Today’s teenagers want to grow up way too fast which saddens us. My husband and I definitely want him to be successful and realize that peer pressure can be our enemy if we do not properly deal with it. Self-confidence has been something instilled in our son and daughter from the time they could recognize it.
To balance inequality in economy, prosocial behaviour is of great importance. On the basis of the research done by Zahn-Waxler and Rodke-Yarrow; (citied in Braten, 1996) children are described as young as 15 months showing signs of caring and concern for other children. A child can cry simply because another child is in distress and might be crying also so when it comes to prosocial behaviour there is no age limit. Prosocial behaviour is of great importance not only to human beings but also to
Fear of confrontation with resourceful parents overwhelms their desire of alerting child neglect. As a result children may continue to live in negligent despite public knowledge. Children with disabilities have in general a larger risk of being abused (predators seek out the weakest). Knowing this, both families and teachers have a very low threshold for alerting Child welfare. The situation may improve if the issue of children’s welfare were put on the agenda, in media as well as in school.
Labour promised to create a New Jerusalem, a prosperous country where all strive for the better. However, Source A states that “They had disastrously overestimated Britain’s ability to export”, Britain needed to create money for itself after America’s Lend Lease policy which left Britain in debt for over 50 years, Britain was unable to export a sufficient amount of goods to provide itself with enough money to stabilize the economy, the source follows up with “underestimated her need for dollars”. Britain’s way of dealing with debt was to create more debt for itself; John Maynard Keynes went over to the United States in order to ask America for a loan without interest, the loan which was bestowed upon Britain by the United States and Canada was $9.5 billion. One of the reasons Labour was unable to create a New Jerusalem was due to the fact that they were unable to shut down the debt which anchored Britain’s economy, Labour had little funds to initiate its promises and plans, leading to the failure of a New Jerusalem. Another reason that Labour failed to build a New Jerusalem was the fact that they were unable to upkeep their promise of housing.
