Dissemination of EBP and research

 

Dissemination of EBP and research, such as presenting results at a conference or writing an article for a journal, is an important part of professional practice. Identify one professional journal and one nursing or health care conference where you might present your project. Discuss why each of your choices is the best option for you to disseminate your new knowledge.

use of plants for medicinal purposes

Assignment Instructions: Watch the documentary here, click link or watch below: The New Chimpanzee (Links to an external site.) presented by National Geographic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz1a7MzHtOQ

Once you have watched the video, answer the following questions below.

· Please provide collegiate responses; meaning, your responses should be thoughtful and thorough. Each response should be at least 3 (or more depending on the question) well-thought-out sentences each. Anything below that will result in reduce points.

· It is recommended to watch the documentary once, and then again to help review and answer the questions more effectively.

Questions To Answer:

1. What tools are the chimpanzees shown using at the different sites? How do individuals learn to use tools? From whom do they learn?

2. Why do primatologists talk about chimpanzee behavior in terms of culture? What examples of cultural behaviors are discussed? How does the video present both tool use and nonmaterial behaviors (for example, handclasp grooming) as culture?

3. How are chimpanzees and bonobos different? What possible explanations are suggested for why they differ?

4. What does the film suggest about chimpanzee use of plants for medicinal purposes?

5. How do bonobos resolve conflicts? What is the character of bonobo social life?

6. Chimpanzees at Gombe and Taï National Parks hunt for colobus monkeys in groups, but researchers at each site (Stanford and Boesch/Boesch-Achermann) report different strategies in hunting activity. What are these different strategies? What possible explanations do the researchers offer for these differences?

7. Chimpanzees have to communicate with each other over long distances. What kind of information might be embedded in different chimpanzee calls?

8. Chimpanzees and bonobos are highly endangered. What are the threats to these animals and what is being done about them?

9. The film talks about chimpanzees and bonobos as “a mind in the forest.” What does this mean? Why should this matter to human beings?

healthy and environmentally beneficial

In this scenario, you will be working as a scientific expert in the public relations office of AwesomePlantMeat, Inc. The CFO came in to your office and said that you have lost 25% of your orders this month due to a smear campaign being put on by a Meat company competitor.

A public relations guy for MeatCompany, Inc. has been making the rounds on Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN talking about a recent research paper that was published. He has been pushing the idea that plant based meats are not as healthy and environmentally beneficial as we once thought.

You will want to read the paper that he is basing his argument on.

Then read this synopsis of his interview:

The meat industry has been inappropriately maligned over the past few years. So it was nice to see the authors Gorrison and Wiltard put out their research showing how plant based meat is no better for you or the environment than real meat.

If you want to gain muscle mass or maintain your muscle mass as you age then the only way to do it is by taking in proteins from meat. It is that plain and simple. When you look at the people of the entire planet, those who do not eat as much animal protein just don’t create as much muscle as we do in America. There is just no way of getting the adequate amino acids that your body needs by only eating plants. They even showed that no plant source of protein out there can get you all the essential amino acids that you need to survive. Is decreasing your use of animal products really worth your health? These fine scientists said that you cannot maintain your health without getting these amino acids from meat products. The researchers even showed that harvesting plants creates just as much carbon dioxide as raising animals! So eating all those different plant proteins create no less greenhouse gas than eating beef or pork.

There are companies out there that are trying to confuse consumers by saying that fake meat is just as good for you as real meat. I caution the listeners to do their research. Even if they create different blends there is no blend that will get you the same ratios of the amino acids that you need to build muscle mass. It is so nice that these researchers showed that meat proteins like the ones that we create are the best way of getting protein in your diet.

You are to read the article, read the synopsis, then write a response to his position. You should point out where he is wrong, how he is misleading the public, and correct the record so your plant-based meat company doesn’t lose additional market share that they have worked so hard to gain.

Your response needs to clarify or refute at least 5 points that he made in his news clip. Not all of the points he makes are wrong, just some may be incomplete or misleading. Each point that you refute needs to be supported.

Possible Impact Of Animal Cruelty

Creating a vision board is an experience that can have many benefits. It helps you visualize things in new ways and layout your goals. The act of making one is enjoyable for some, and you can design them using different methods that work for you.

With the start of the new year, many people made vision boards to display their goals for 2021. The month of January is about halfway over now, but it is not too late to create a vision board for the remaining 11 months in the year.

An article on  today.com  written by Stephanie Mansour discusses some of the benefits of making a vision board.

“It was such a creative and fun way to think about my goals. I found more out-of-the-box images and words that I wouldn’t normally think of when writing out resolutions in a journal. It felt like I was using a totally different part of my brain to come up with my goals,”  Mansour said in the article.

Jalicia Blair, a sophomore biochemistry student at Florida State University, and Toni Allen, a senior psychology student at FSU, made vision boards in a group setting with another friend. They made physical vision boards considering their short and long-term goals.

“I purchased some magazines, reflected on last year and made a plan for how I wanted to approach this year. I found some pictures that correlated to the plan and separated it into short and long term,” Blair said.

The goals that Blair and Allen included on their boards were different, even though they made them in a group setting. Blair’s goals included working on confidence and finding peace within. She also wants to travel.

“Some of my goals include cooking more, saving up for a home and maintaining a healthy relationship,” Allen said.

Making physical vision boards is one option, but some people chose to create digital vision boards to map out their plans for the year. Christian Blue, a sophomore biology student at Florida A&M University, is one of those people.

Blue created his digital vision board during a virtual vision board party hosted by @vrtlbookclb on Instagram. The party was hosted by the page’s creator, Mia Uzzell, via Zoom.

“In the Zoom event, Mia had us download an app called Canva where we mapped out some of our goals and aspirations for 2021. We made pictures and graphics that made our visions come to life,” Blue said.

Blair, Allen and Blue all explained that they enjoyed creating their vision boards and would suggest that others do the same. Blue especially suggests that people who feel stuck in life make one to help them. Allen suggests maybe making two separate boards to organize short and long-term goals.

If you have not created a vision board, the year is just getting started and you may want to consider making one for yourself. Check out this article from  thisisadultlife.com  for more information on vision boards and how you can create one physically or digitally.
