A substantial reduction in infections among LBW Infants is demonstrated from the literature.Parents of LBW and preterm infants face dual burden of complication of prematurity as well as economic constraints.Initially preterm and LBW infants were given KMC for 24 hrs.Studies among LBW infants depicts significant improvement in growth of infants, with mean weight gain of 29gms among infants <1500gms, who received KMC at 4th day of life (Gupta, 2007).Out of 20 LBW infants 18 maintained their temperature with KMC, whereas in control group six out of 14 infants maintained their temperature.

When a batsman or a fielding captain wants to challenge an umpire’s LBW decision, they can now resort to a technology called Hawkeye.References: .Because umpires need to be confident that an LBW appeal fulfils all of these difficult criteria, they have historically been conservative when it comes to giving batsmen out.Dar said he was fully supportive of the Decision Review System (DRS), and wanted consistency in the use of various technologies.April 14, 2012 .

The LBW decision has started to be tested in International Test Cricket.According to Derek Pringle, Sports Writer, there are several things that need to be taken into consideration when making LBW decisions; the position the ball is bowled from, how much the ball moves when it hits the ground (eg swing) and the height the ball bounces when measured against the stumps.The 3rd umpire, when used, prevents human error.It ensures the right decision is made without bias or doubt, keeps the game fair, and ensures the best team wins.During the India vs Sri Lanka Series 2009, Sachin Tendulkar was given three dubious LBW decisions.

We use observations and next steps within my setting as evidence based approach to understanding a child’s behaviour.Professional practise is keeping up to date with these findings and using them to deliver best practise (using evidence and findings).EBP in infant, toddler, and early childhood psychology has the potential to improve the health of an increasingly diverse community by focusing on the needs of the youngest, most vulnerable members of society and the families charged with their care and nurturance.For example, Premature and low birth weight (LBW) infants, especially very low birth weight (< 1500 grams), present unique challenges for early intervention since LBW is often a precursor for a myriad of developmental, medical, ...

The chance of a cesarean birth is higher in twin than in singleton births.Low birth weight (LBW): More than half of twins and almost all higher-order multiples are born with low birth weight (less than 5½ pounds or 2,500 grams).However, a pregnant woman has a good chance of having a normal vaginal delivery if both babies are in a head-down position and there are no other complications.A healthy weight gain is especially important if a woman is pregnant with multiples because they have a higher risk of premature birth and LBW than singletons.Eating right and gaining the recommended amount of weight reduces the risk of having a premature or LBW baby in singleton, as well as multiple, gestations.

In addition, health providers should be encouraged to pay special attention to postnatal contraception for adolescent mothers to postpone next pregnancy until they are biologically, psychologically and financially able to care for another baby.Hence, it is recommended to include quality of maternal health care as one confounding factor of pregnancy outcomes.With respect to pregnancy outcomes, adolescent mothers were found to have a higher incidence of preterm and LBW deliveries.Qualitative study focusing on health-seeking behavior of adolescent mothers and social problems they encountered during pregnancy and delivery should be conducted for more in-depth understanding of adolescent pregnancy outcomes.Access to quality antenatal and deli...

Ranjan (2009) investigated the phonological processes in 60 English speaking Indian children in the age range of 3-4 years and 4-5 years.The least occurring processes were diphthong reduction, vocalization, deaffrication, initial consonant deletion, backing of vowel, and gliding.They reported that children born with very low birth weight are at risk for poor phonological development at 2 years of corrected age when compared with term matched children... Spek, Franken, Wieringa, & Weisglas-Kuperus (2009) studied 20 very low birth weight children and 20 normally developing children.The most commonly occurring phonological processes were cluster reduction, final consonant deletion, and strident deletion.

However, during Newland’s first visit to Ellen Olenska’s home, he gives her a bouquet of yellow roses which the protagonist’s thought “there was something too rich, too strong, in their fiery beauty.” (Wharton, 1918:65) as “he had never seen any as sun-golden before” (Wharton, 1918:65) thus Wharton, suggests that like flowers reflects on the receiver’s personality and therefore the yellow flowers symbolise jealousy, infidelity and exoticism.As Wharton demonstrates a use of irony as Ellen “closed the shutters” (Wharton, 1918:298), she is symbolically ending any chance that Newland has of changing.Wharton uses the colour “white” to symbolise purity and innocence, as exemplified in May’s costumes as she dresses in “white and sliver” (Wharto...

With her short stories in particular, Wharton examined the potential in the literary world for a multifaceted approach to describing this social change.These American authors would be called the Lost Generation because of this aspect of society that Wharton had already exposed.Edith Wharton raced ahead of her time in literature.Wharton should be examined for her valuable role as a female author writing of social values and implications in the early 1900s.A final area of relevance to the period surrounding Edith Wharton is that it was a literary moment dominated by male figures.

There are support services and CHC’s available in our area for minority group women, preterm infants and their families to address their needs.Hispanics of Puerto Rican origin have higher IMRs than White infants because of higher LBW rates.The exact cause of these persisting racial disparities remains unexplained.Racial and ethnic disparities in health disproportionately affect minority Americans.This disparity in healthcare outcomes does not appear to be limited to the Black community only, but rather it seems to affect all minority groups.

Edith Wharton described the appearances and behaviours of Barth in detail, and overall, the novel itself was even described as ‘a novel about New York socialite, Lily Barth, attempting to secure a husband and place in rich society.’ Therefore, the readers and literature professionals agree that Lily Barth is the central character of the House of Mirth.From the dialogue, Edith Wharton had made the point that only the custom forbids the act of divorce while it is actually legally appropriate to be done.Nonetheless, Wharton’s preference on female gender as the central characters in her writings cannot justify the claim that Edith Wharton is a literature feminist.From this excerpt anyway, Wharton uses the term ‘black sheep’ to indicate the ...

The story starts out more than twenty years after the incidents of the “smash-up” which makes the exposition rather, anti-climactic, as Wharton explains in her notes, since it is already partially revealed what would become of the characters.She reveals in the end, all the important pieces that filled the gaps, she provided a more personal account of the story since she used to be close with the family.The novel of Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton is a story within a story because the narrator is detached from the actual events that happen to Ethan Frome and the members of his household.I had this from Harmon Gow,” (Wharton, 1911).Wharton is also trying to imply on the readers that the way history is collected is not very much different from...

William Julius observes that the consequences of changing income inequalities in the American workplace is leading to massive unemployment among many people, specifically those from minority ethnic groups and resides in Ghettos (Wharton 85).What therefore is emerging is the tendency of foreign and local corporation to adopt the most efficient and cost-effective global policies and strategies, which in turn have led to job loses, wage decline, and numerous changes in the way work is organized and executed (Wharton 86).According to the author, economic transformation, which has been partly influenced by globalization and changing financial opportunities of most people, has resulted into massive growth of unemployment, and this aspect has l...

Wharton lived in a loveless marriage for years before she took a risk and divorced Teddy Wharton, her husband for almost thirty years.Because Wharton refrains from using unnecessary, superfluous modifiers, her descriptions seem to be almost elliptical or incomplete.Throughout the novel, Wharton builds up patterns of imagery, patterns of behavior, and specially charged words; all of which serve a definite stylistic and structural purpose.Wharton establishes patterns of imagery by using figurative language — language meant to be taken figuratively as well as literally.Mattie’s change in mood reminds Ethan of “the flit of a bird in the branches” and he feels that walking with her is similar to “floating on a summer stream.” Later in the nov...

The symbolic nature of the dish representing the marriage of Ethan to Zeena is shattered and Ethan is liberated by the moment – however fleetingly.This is interestingly displayed at the moment of crisis when the pickle dish is shattered as Ethan takes control and feels the ‘thrilling sense of mastery’ as he reassembles the dish.Mattie’s description of the landscape looking as it had been painted strikes a deep chord within Ethan and he feels that Mattie is able to articulate ‘his secret soul’.The closeness and intensity of their relationship is perhaps understated – depicted in the language of the environment rather than through eloquent dialogue.Edith Wharton quite deliberately brings together human emotion and the environment in her no...

“Roman fever” will doubtless continue to be enjoyed by future generations.It’s no exaggeration to say that Wharton’s ironic and metaphoric use of illness in this story contributes to her work the immortal validity.Wharton wrote in her work: ‘no worse risk than catching cold during the cool hour after sunset’.Wharton achieves great success in conveying the significance of the story.Especially, the title “Roman fever” conveys thoughtfully the significance of that theme.

As vestiges of antiquity remain in this small town, the threat of a new, more competitive economy always lurks on its outskirts.For Wharton, an American integrity lies within American writing, but so long as American identity is subject to globalization, writing and reading must also suffer.Wharton’s defeatist protagonist illuminates the critical distance designed to secure right or good reading and override the individual as text.Indeed, he admits that he is not telling Frome’s story directly, but is instead piecing together “this vision of his story” (Wharton 14); that is, whatever the narrator might be reading as part of a hermeneutic reveal – whatever knowledge he is gaining in compliance with globalized capitalism – is found within ...
