Kaplan University
Raimi Abiodun, Professor


Healthcare leaders and medical experts have renounced their concerns about challenges ahead for healthcare and its leaders. The paper is meant to summarize, and explore the article and on Ronald G. Spaeth’s philosophies on healthcare, and examine Spaeth’s authority on business and healthcare through his education and works. He states that in recent years, healthcare institutions are now running more like businesses and that new healthcare leaders should already have a strong background in business. His methods of leadership will point out the limitations of healthcare institutions and suggest ideas for solutions that combine administrators and physicians working together on this problem. Ronald G. Spaeth has served on several boards and serves a president and chief executive officer of Highland Park Hospital (Highland Park, Illinois) merged with Evanston Northwestern Healthcare (Evanston, Illinois). Mr. Spaeth is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives. He earned his bachelor of arts degree from Western Reserve University in Ohio and his master’s in business administration degree from the University of Chicago in Illinois. He was also the recipient of the American College of Healthcare Executive’s 2005 Gold Medal Award, an honour conferred on outstanding healthcare leaders for their contributions to the field (Spaeth’s Argument para.1) Spaeth’s strategies as a leader for healthcare were having respect and admiration for the work of his physicians. He believed that no hospital administrators could achieve commiserate with them, and assist them as needed in their activities to make them more efficient. I believe his methods of management originate from a human relations school of management theory which emphasizes in the need to involve…...

Ronald Reagan, Overrated

...Running head: THE OVERRATED RONALD REAGAN The Overrated Ronald Reagan Kirston Gardner University of Phoenix Carole Lormand September 28, 2013 The Overrated Ronald Reagan Ronald Reagan, the nation’s 40th president is one of the most overrated men in history. Americans did not forget all the broken promises and dishonesty they dealt with while Reagan was in office. For many reasons he would be considered a good President but there are many more reasons that he would not. Reagan’s ratings were higher than the averages of his three immediate predecessors, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, and Richard Nixon (Frank Newport, 2004). When rating Reagan, many factors show that he is indeed overrated, not only as a president but an individual as well. During Reagan’s term in office Americans faced recession, debt, high unemployment, questionable foreign policy and wasteful spending among other things. As Reagan was sworn, one of the first incidents, which were the release of the 51 hostages from the American Embassy in Tehran, occurred. It seemed as if the Iranians feared the win of future President Ronald Reagan. However, there were a few incidents that occurred prior to the inauguration of Reagan that actually set the stage for the emanate release of the hostages (United States History). The Shah of Iran died right before the presidential rae was over. Shah’s return, one of the requests in negotiations with the Iranians, was neutralized. The negotiations were now closer to......

She worked with a detective to create a composite sketch and a few days later, she was informed they had a suspect. Her accuracy to identify the picture of her aggressor was low at choosing one picture out of five , she admits having a hard time identifying her aggressor. She even compares the feeling to the one students feel when taking a multiple choice test. Ronald was locked up and days later put up in a physical line up. Jennifer picked Ronald Cotton for the second time and this reinforces Jennifer thoughts of identifying Ronald as the criminal. In her mind, he was the one. Confidently she points a finger at Ronald in the trial and it took only 40 minutes for the jury to find Cotton guilty as fault.

...Kimberly L. Hansen 03/17/2014 HIS/135 Carol Jordan Political Commentary Interview Week 7 My interview regarding Ronald Reagan was with my father Dennis Smith. I asked him the following questions and these were his responses. “When you think of Ronald Reagan and the policies under the New Right during his time as President how effective do you think they were?” D. Smith: “ If I remember correctly his attempt at cutting government spending as well as his attempt at downsizing the government didn't work out as planned. As a matter of fact the national debt tripled during his time in office and the government downsizing that he had in mind mainly dealt with social security and medicare cuts.” I think Reagan's intentions were on the right track but you are right his actions helped steer us toward the recession of the 1990's. D. Smith “That is true, Reagan was definitely a for the people president and he had a way with words, he was able to reach out to people everywhere.” How important of a role did President Reagan play in the Cold War finally coming to an end? D. Smith “It is true that some of the ground work was laid out by previous presidents but Reagan was instrumental in the end of the cold war. Reagan spoke to people everywhere, proclaiming independence and freedom from communism.” D. Smith “After all he was the one that finally people to understand ...

Ronald Reagan

...Previously a radio broadcaster, actor and governor, in 1981 Ronald Reagan was sworn in as the 40th president of the United States. As a teen, Ronald Reagan lifeguarded, a job that his son believes formed his role in the United States government in years to come; he always wanted to save people. As a lifeguard, he protected and saved the lives of swimmers. As president, he took on a different role, saving the vitality of the nation. In 1962, despite the fact that he had been a Democrat his whole life, he became a Republican, believing the Democrat party left him. Some may have argued that he was not cut out to take on such a demanding role within the government, but many people fully supported his campaign, seeking a leader who could get them through tough times, especially because the election was going on simultaneously with the Iran Hostage Crisis. Stressing principles of low taxes and a strong defense, Reagan won the election. In a nation where the political pendulum was stuck to the left for the past 30 years, Reagan was able to shift it right, taking control over his nation with his charisma and political promises. Whether it was negative or positive, Reagan had a tremendous influence in America. The figure of the pendulum is a basic allegory for the American public opinion since the 1930s, and is especially affected by the life and career of Ronald Reagan. The entire pendulum is a representation of the atmosphere of America since the 1930s; this atmosphere......

...Ronald Reagan: Underrated, Overrated or Both Erica Boozer HIS/145 April 10, 2014 Tee Swan Ronald Reagan: Underrated, Overrated or Both Was President Reagan overrated or underrated? This is such a controversial question. Some believe he was overrated while others believe the latter. Ronald Wilson Reagan was the 40th president of the United States. Reagan was born in Tampico, Illinois on February 6, 1911. In 1920, after living in a series of towns as a child, Reagan family settled in Dixon, Illinois. Here his father opened a shoe store (biography, 2014). Reagan graduated high school in 1928 and continued his adult education at Eureka College in Illinois. Here, he was an athlete and scholar. He played football, ran track, and was captain of the swim team. He also acted in school plays and was president of the student council (biography, 2014). Reagan graduated in 1932 and in the latter part of the thirties he signed a seven year contract with Warner Brothers studio. He starred in over 50 movies during his time as a Hollywood actor (biography, 2014). Political Career Reagan started his political ventures in 1964. He gave a televised speech for Barry Goldwater who was a Republican presidential candidate at the time. Two years later he became the governor of California and was re-elected for a second term in 1970 (biography, 2014).

...To: Date: December 2 At the meeting last week, J&J was considering how it should account for the Shiny Teeth coupon drop that took place on October 1, 2012. As discussed of your concerns, we conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards general accepted in the United States of America. My responsibility is to express an opinion on our findings of the audit. I believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. Our focus was on the Shiny Teeth coupon drop. The accounting issue is determining redemption rate offered on September 1 and drop on October 1, 2012. According to FASB Accounting Standards Codification 605-50-05-1a a vendor's accounting for consideration given by a vendor to a customer (including both a reseller of the vendor’s products and an entity that purchases the vendor’s products from a reseller). Such consideration (including sales incentives) offered by a vendor on either a limited or a continuous basis to a customer may take various forms including discounts, coupons, rebates, and free products or services. The accounting issue is the correct recognition of coupons offered on the sale of toothpaste. We will address the issue of timing and measurement of the revenues and liabilities resulting from the coupon. Next, we looked at the effect of the Shiny Teeth coupon drop on its financial and how it should be recognized. The sale incentive (coupon) offered by the company and retailer reduced the price of the......

Ronald Reagan

...Ronald Wilson Reagan, born February 6, 1911, served the United States as the 40th president from 1981 to 1989. Reagan was the first and only movie actor elected to office. During his two-terms in office, Reagan had many accomplishments; cutting taxes, strengthened and increased national defense spending, and through foreign policy pursued “peace through strength.” (Freidel & Sidey, 2006). The primary strength Reagan possessed in office was his oratory skills, in which he was dubbed “The Great Communicator”. The presidency of Ronald Reagan corresponded with a “long period of dramatic economic growth and the beginning of a momentous change in international relations.” (Brinkley, 2002). Through legislation, Reagan stimulated the economic growth, curbed inflation, and increased U.S. employment. By cutting taxes and Government expenditures Reagan overhauled the income tax code. By which, he removed many deductions and made exempt millions of low-income people. As the end of his term neared, our nation enjoyed “its longest recorded period of peacetime prosperity without recession or depression.” (Freidel & Sidey, 2006). Another achievement of Reagan was his plan, Supply Side Economics. In a plan, he felt in order to improve the economy, the industries needed to be built up through “entrepreneurial skills” and the corporate wealth would “trickle down to the people.” (The 40th US President - Ronald Reagan). Raised in the small town of Dixon, Illinois, his parents......

J&J Analysis

...Summers Daniel Vijayakumar SUMMARY Johnson & Johnson (“J&J”), one of the largest, well-known organizations in the world, produces products for consumer health care and for use by medical professionals in care and diagnostics. Some of their most recognizable brands include Tylenol, Neutrogena, Listerine, Band-Aid and Reactine. These, along with their many other brands, are produced in over 60 countries by more than 250 different operating companies that make up the J&J organization. In total, more than 114,000 employees are part of the organization, and they are managed through a system of decentralized management with a wide span of control. J&J faces the unique challenge of trying to create one corporate culture that all parts of their organization believe in and adhere to. One of the strategies used to combat these obstacles is values-based leadership and linking employees and subsidiaries under a common set of values, as outlined in "Our Credo". J&J works extremely hard to uphold their Credo, which was written by Robert Wood Johnson – one of the founders of the organization – in 1943. It is a set of values that J&J vow to work by and which lend to the present culture that is so important in the organization today. J&J also attempts to induce a culture of innovation and promote diversity and acceptance of differences throughout its subsidiaries. Since organizational culture is such a vital piece in connecting J&J’s subsidiaries, a very strong culture has developed. In......

Ronald Regan

...Ronald Reagan, My American Hero October 5, 2014 English 101 Ronald Reagan was more than just our nation’s 40th President, he was a remarkable leader. Winning the Governor election by more than 1 million votes, and President of the United States for two terms, America was needing a fearless figure in front of economic, domestic and international threats this nation was experiencing. He brought lower tax rates, negotiated the nuclear arms treaty with the Soviet Union, and influenced the tear down of the Berlin wall and the ending the Cold War without firing a shot. Reagan left Office in 1989 and said, “We meant to change the nation, but instead we changed the world” (cardigan, 1995). Spending his last years with Alzheimer’s and never removing himself from the nation he had great passion for, Ronald Reagan arguably became the greatest President America has ever had. In the early days of Ronald Reagan’s career in acting, he took a very keen interest in his first political endeavor as President of the Screen Actors Guild in 1947. The SAG According to Cardigan (1995), was a labor organization much like other older unions during World War I. When the War was over, Reagan was at the helm of one of the toughest trials and even bigger strikes than before he became President of the SAG (Cardigan, 1995).  Ronald Reagan Stated that dispute was hideously complicated. When the eider ideological issue of a possible communist takeover arise was he able to exert his......

Ronald Reagan

...Ronald Wilson Reagan was born on February 6, 1911, in Tampico, Illinois. Ronald Reagan, a former actor and California governor, served as the 40th U.S. president from 1981 to 1989. He became a Hollywood actor in his 20s and later served as the Republican governor of California from 1967 to 1975. President Reagan advanced policies that reduced social programs and restrictions on business. Tax cuts were implemented to stimulate the United States' economy. He also advocated for increases in military spending, reductions in certain social programs and measures to deregulate business. By 1983, the nation's economy had begun to recover and, according to many economists, entered a seven-year period of prosperity. Critics charged that his policies had actually increased the deficit and hurt the middle class and poor, however. In 1981, Reagan made history by appointing Sandra Day O'Connor as the first woman to the U.S. Supreme Court. Ronald Reagan was a true hero to many Americans. He was a strong president who cared for this country dearly, and Reagan really proved this by his actions during his presidency. He also proved his love for country by serving in the U.S Army during World War II. Ronald Reagan also came through as a hero by fixing the American Economy that was heading for disaster just like today’s. If you can reflect on what he had accomplished throughout his administration you can clearly see why he was a popular two term president. Ronald Reagan took on many......

Ronald Reagan

...Ronald Reagan Ronald Reagan was the 40th president of the United States. Ronald Reagan lost the republican nomination to Gerald Ford in 1976. Reagan won the 1980 nomination and chose George H. W. Bush. Reagan and Bush ran against Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale. He was so great people began to ask if there was enough room for another face on Mount Rushmore. In 1985, the Iran-Contra Affair supplied weapons to a sworn enemy. The transactions that took place in the Iran-Contra Scandal were contrary to the legislation of the Democratic-dominated Congress and contrary to official Reagan administration policy. In 1985 Iran and Iraq were at war, Iran made a secret request to buy weapons from the United States. The scandal was almost the undoing of the Teflon President. Despite the damage to Reagan’s image, the president got off very easily. President Reagan came to the White House promising a major shift to conservative economic policies. His program included a supply-side revolution, a scaling down of wasteful government activity, lower taxes and less interference with the market economy. As a result, it was expected, the US economy would become more efficient, with faster growth and minimal inflation. Tax reductions would pay for themselves so that the budget would soon return to balance. Financial expansion did help bring down unemployment, but the administration soon learned that tax cuts led to trade and budget deficits. Though early dreams remain unfulfilled, the Reagan......
