Influenza or simply flu is one of the most devastating communicable diseases. This is because it is transmitted through the air we breathe. This simply means that being in the company of a mammal or bird that is infected is more than good enough reason for one to get infected (Naff, 2011). Influenza is caused by an influenza virus which can be of one of three types. Type A and B results to a high degree of infections. These two types are responsible for severe respiratory infections and in some cases death. Influenza virus type C on the other hand does not lead to severe respiratory infection

This paper will give an overview of the varicella-zoster virus. This paper will also discuss the detriments of health from the chickenpox virus. The epidemiologic triangle will be outlined as it depicts the chickenpox virus. The aspect of the community health nurse will be discussed and information on a national organization for infectious diseases will be provided.
Chicken pox and shingles are caused by the virus varicella-zoster. The varicella-zoster virus is spread through the air by coughing or sneezing and can also be spread by touching the blisters or inhaling particles from the blisters ("CDC," n.d.). Chicken pox (varicella) is a highly contagious virus. The reactivation of

The global epidemiology is associated with the western culture diet, being far more common in industrialized countries like the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom, and much less prevalent in Asia and Africa. These two conditions were rare in the 18th century and appear to be linked to the reduction of fiber in flour due to the development of roller mills that replaced grist mills in the late 1800’s. Roller mills were a more efficient method of refining wheat into flour; however this resulted in the destroying or

Incremental analysis is applicable to both short- and long-run issues, but is particularly suited to short-run decisions. In the short run, production capacity remains unchanged so by definition, fixed costs do not vary due to capacity shifts. In the long run, production capacity is changeable; more elements will thus generally be required to be incorporated into an incremental analysis.

Diversification is a company strategy where a company’s goal is to increase profitability through increased sales volume from new products and new markets. It allows a company to venture out into new lines of business that are different from present operations. Companies choose to diversify for a host of different reasons. A major reason companies make the decision to diversify is to achieve synergy, making it possible for two or more parts of an organization to achieve greater total effectiveness or profitability than what would have been possible for a single entity.
