Ideally, our long term care system would provide a seamless continuum of services which are accessible and affordable for all older adults, with the goal of enabling them to remain in the community for as long as possible. These “aging in place” programs (PACE and NORCs) provide such a model. Given what you now know about the components of our health care delivery system and how they are administered, delivered and paid for:

A. Identify health care system barriers to achieving the seamless continuum

B. Identify social, family or other “non-system” barriers.

C. Propose ways in which community organizations or the government might assist in overcoming the barriers you have identified         

Appendix B: Briefing and Analyzing Cases in Constitutional Law offers a model to brief a court

FIRAC Worksheet
Appendix B: Briefing and Analyzing Cases in Constitutional Law offers a model to brief a court case. FIRAC stands for Facts, Issue, Rule(s), Analyze, and Conclusion. Read about this model and see an example of it in Appendix B. Then, select a United States Supreme Court case on the First Amendment and complete a FIRAC analysis using the worksheet below.
Miranda v. Arizona
FACTS: Lay out the facts of the case. (200 words)
The Miranda v. Arizona case was 1 of 4 cases that the supreme court addressed involved police interrogations in that the defendants were questioned by police officers. In this case particularly Miranda was a young boy who at the time was in the 9th grade when he was accused of rape and kidnapping. After the courts found him guilty he was sentenced to 20 – 30 years of imprisonment. Miranda was found to be mentally unstable and appealed to the courts advocating that he confessed these crimes that he did not commit because he was under duress and feared for his safety from the authorities when he was being interrogated. After appealing to the Arizona courts and being denied Miranda appealed to the supreme courts to review his case. In 1966 the Supreme Court ruled in a 5 – 4 majority that they were in favor of Miranda.
ISSUE: Identify the legal issue.(50 words)
RULE: What provision of the First Amendment applies to the issue you have defined? (50 words)
ANALYZE: Analyze the case, applying the law to the facts of the case.  (300 words)
CONCLUSION: Draw a conclusion. (200 words)

1.   Determine whether each of the following functions is 1-to-1 and whether it is onto. Assume the domain and co-domain is Z, the integers. Explain your answers.
             1.  f(n) = n / 2, assuming integer division
             2.  g(n) = 4n + 5
2.   Given each of the following functions that maps X = {1, 2, 3} to Y = {A, B, C}
            f(1) = A, f(2) = B, f(3) = A
            g(1) = C, g(2) = B, g(3) = A
Determine whether the function has an inverse. If it has an inverse, provide it. If it does not, explain why not.
3.   Refer to the functions in problem 2. What are domain and codomain of both functions? What is the range of each of them?
4.   Draw arrow diagrams for both functions defined in problem 2.
5.   Given the following two functions f: R  R and g: R  R are defined by the rules:
f(x) = x2 + 10x + 7
g(y) = 5y + 9
Find f ◦ g and g ◦ f.

California Gold Rush Project Proposal

California Gold Rush Project Proposal
            In analyzing the California Gold Rush, there are numerous elements which present an important and significant impact from a historical perspective. Accordingly, the proposal is to investigate with regards to the following thesis:
            While the California Gold Rush may be romanticized, the real-life events which took place symbolized a lifestyle of continual hardship and struggle that has since been forgotten.
            To full address this thesis it will be necessary to address the following questions:
How ‘large’ was the actual Gold Rush?
What was the daily routine of those involved?
How was their health impacted?
What were the significant events throughout the period?
What happened to these people at the end of the Gold Rush
