question 2

First, spend a couple of sentences summarizing the Concepts in Action video you watched this week. Then, answer the following. In the Concepts in Action video you watched this week, the speaker mentioned, “A stock is fundamentally more difficult to value than a bond, because it’s less quantitative.” Why do you think this is so (think about intrinsic vs. market value)?

question 4

  1. The privacy and security provisions of HIPAA are complex. HIPAA allows states to establish stricter standards than those in HIPAA, but not less strict versions.For this assignment, research two real-life examples of HIPAA violations of privacy or security laws that occurred in the U.S. since the passage of the HIPAA law (after 1996). Each violation described should be serious, and one that resulted in a fine or penalty for the individual or company involved.
    • You can find real-life examples of HIPAA violations in news reports, medical journals, professional health care publications, and other similar reliable factual sources

    For each example violation, include the following information:1. A complete, descriptive summary of the case:

    • How did the HIPAA violation occur?
    • What policies, if any, did the organization have in place to protect against the violation?
    • What was the penalty for the violation (fine, prison terms, termination of employment, etc?)

    2. Finally, describe three ways in which the organization could have prevented the violations.Requirements:Submit your essay in a Word document. This assignment must be at least 500 words, with at least four references cited properly in APA format, and a title page (APA format). This assignment must be well- written with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Follow the rubric.

question 5

E-cigarettes (vaping) have been touted as a safer alternative to smoking. However, recent studies have pointed to many side-effects to vaping. The amount of students who are vaping has also significantly increased. Should e-cigarettes still be considered as a safer alternative to smoking? Should the FDA (Food Drug Administration) increase warning people about the possible dangers of vaping? Should the government increase regulation of companies that are targeting teenagers to start vaping? Read the articles below to help formulate your conclusions. You may also use your own research. Use data to support your conclusions.

2. The use of cellular phones has been associated with the development of brain cancer, as evidenced in several studies. However, other studies have shown no such association. The table below includes the results of a case–control study of brain tumors and the regular use of cellular phones. This study was conducted using a control group made up of a random sample of the population of high school students who attended the same schools where the students with brain tumors were found.

  2. How many study subjects were controls?
  3. What was the ratio of controls to cases?
  4. Calculate the odds ratio that compares exposure to cellular phones among those with andwithout the disease.
  5. Make a conclusion based on the calculated odds ratio
  1. Consider the risk of developing breast cancer for women related to the age which they had their first child.
    1. Calculate the odds ratio.
    2. What does this value mean?
  2. A cohort study was conducted to study the association of coffee drinking and anxiety in a population-based sample of adults. Among 10,000 coffee drinkers, 500 cases of anxiety were observed. Among 20,000 adults who do not drink coffee, 200 cases of anxiety were observed.
    a. Construct a 2×2 contingency table for the data.b. What is the relative risk of anxiety associated with coffee use? c. What does this value mean?
  3. Of 2,472 people who had received radiation treatment in childhood because of enlarged thymus, cancer of the thyroid developed in 24 and benign thyroid tumor developed in 52. A comparison group consisted of 3,055 children who had received no such treatment (brothers and sisters of those who had received radiation treatment). During the follow-up period, one of the comparison group developed thyroid cancer, but benign thyroid tumors developed in 6.
    1. Construct TWO 2×2 contingency tables for the data. One is for thyroid cancer and the other table is for benign thyroid tumors.
    2. Calculate the relative risk for benign thyroid tumors. Calculate the relative risk for thyroid cancer.
    3. Explain the results.
