Another of the longstanding Windows traditions that Windows 7 abandoned is that it contains fewer bundled applications than its previous versions. For example, Microsoft Mail will not be available when you install Windows 7. Similarly, Messenger will also not be installed when you install Windows 7. Instead, Microsoft offers a suite of essential applications as a separate download. Doing so allows Microsoft to have separate release timelines for Windows and these essential applications. It also allows them to make these essential applications more easily available for earlier versions of Windows.
In the first part of this chapter, you will first see how you can install the suite of essential applications from Microsoft free of charge. We will then look at the suite of built-in applications that ship with Windows 7.
Windows Live is the brand name for a set of services and applications offered by Microsoft. Broadly speaking, Windows Live is made of two parts: Windows Live Services and Windows Live Essentials. Windows Live Services refers to hosted applications/services that you can use over the Web. A good example of a Windows Live Services application is Hotmail; another example would be MySpace. Windows Live Essentials, on the other hand, refers to a suite of applications that users can download and install on their Windows computers. Examples are Messenger, Mail, and Photo Gallery. This section will focus on Windows Live Essentials.See All Chapters

Ordinarily, Flash assumes you want to play your animation in sequential order from the first frame in your timeline to the last. But sometimes start at the beginning and quit at the end isnt exactly what you want. Fortunately, by using a combination of scenes, frame labels, and ActionScript (Chapter12), you can control your animation virtually any way you like.
For example, say youre putting together an instructional animation. You want to start with an introductory section, move on to the meat of your topic, and then wrap up with a question-and-answer section. If you organize these sections into separately named scenes, then you can play with the order of your animation quickly and easily. If you decide to reposition the question-and-answer scene directly after the introduction as a kind of pretest, for example, you can do that with a simple drag of your mouse. You can even add buttons that the trainee can click to replay the question-and-answer scene over and over, as many times as she likes.See All Chapters

Survivors of all forms of childhood sexual trauma frequently have serious sexual problems. As E. Sue Blume says in her 1990 book, Secret Survivors, which lays out many of the sexual sequelae of incest, “The context in which the child victim is first introduced to sex is responsible for numerous distortions in later life. Sex is not sex for the incest survivor” (p. 207). In particular, survivors of incest feel shame over the fact that they were sexually aroused during the abuse. The body is wired to respond to being sexually stimulated, and this is something a child cannot handle emotionally. Sexual aversion is frequently seen, as is sexual addictions, as well as other forms of sexual compulsivity.
Since most survivors of organized abuse—ritual abuse, mind control, child prostitution, and child pornography—have also experienced incest (which Blume defines as abuse by a person of greater power who is involved in an ongoing relationship with the victim), it is helpful to know about these things. However, the sexual abuses of these survivors go far beyond those of most sexual abuse survivors. Survivors of these abuses do not reactively develop problems such as sexual disturbances, including addictions and paraphilias, they are programmed to do so.See All Chapters

Nurses are on the front lines of patient decision-making and are often called on to help patients and their families understand complex medical terminology and procedures. As a nurse, you are probably familiar with informed consent forms that patients or those legally authorized to make decisions for them are required to sign to receive treatment, undergo surgery, or leave a healthcare setting before it is medically advisable. But having a signature on a form, although legally necessary, is not sufficient to fulfill the legal and ethical requirements for informed consent. The patient’s signature should be the final step in a process that includes providing the patient with the information necessary to be able to make a decision about receiving treatment and ensuring that the patient understands the information given and has the capacity to make a choice about how to proceed.
The nurse’s role in informed consent is rooted in ethical duty to the patient and in the legal scope of practice as dictated by license (LPN, RN, APRN) and state nurse practice acts. Nurses must familiarize themselves with the practice requirements and restrictions for both their own practice and for the practice of nurses who are their direct reports to ensure that tasks delegated are within scope of practice. The American Nurses Association (ANA) Code of Ethics for Nurses describes the nurse’s obligation to respect the individual and speaks specifically to nurses’ obligation to respect “the right to self-determination” (ANA, 2001). In the context of informed consent, the right to self-determination includes the patient’s ethical and legal right toSee All Chapters
