Demographic Trends in Hudson Oaks
Hudson Oaks is a small suburban city in Parker County, Texas. It is located 23 miles west of Fort Worth and according to the 2011 Census is home to 1677 residents. “The City of Hudson Oaks was incorporated in 1978 by a group of citizens who shared a desire to come together in creating a community that could create its own destiny rather than having it shaped by the taxing entities in the surrounding area” (Deen, n.d., para. 2). Since that time the City of Hudson Oaks has become a vibrant leader in the development of eastern Parker County.
With a city limits containing 8.29 square miles Hudson Oaks is not considered a large community by anyone. It is however a very progressive and well planned community. “The City of Hudson Oaks and its elected and appointed officials deeply value long-range planning. This is why the City has taken a leadership role in initiatives to seek regional solutions to challenges shared by all cities in eastern Parker County” (Deen, n.d., para. 5). This has allowed the city to manage is commercial and residential growth in a way that benefits its residents as well as its business owners.
Single family housing in Hudson Oaks is still the primary mode of housing. There are no apartments in the City of Hudson Oaks with no plans of building any currently filed with the city. This has remained constant since the incorporation of the city back in 1978. Housing costs have risen over the years with the estimated median home value in 2009 of $230,815 compared to $156,300 in 2000 ("Hudson Oaks," n.d., p. 1) but the city boasts approximately a 3.4% rate of vacant housing units. City planners view regulated zoning is key to integrating the community in…...

...Oak Island's Money Pit Mystery Who will be the next treasure hunter to squander all of their money in search for a possible treasure on the bottom of a pit when hundreds of people tried without success for centuries to reach the bottom of the "Money Pit"? Is the next treasure hunter going to be able to stop the flow of the water that is preventing anybody from reaching the bottom of the pit? No one has been able to stop the water and solving the mystery for over two hundred years. Yet engineers, rich people, divers, builders and even a U.S President tried very hard to discover what is buried on the bottom of the pit. Is it possible that it could be Captain William Kidd's treasure? Could it be the crown jewels of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinetter? In my research paper I will first be explaining about the history of the mysterious "Oak Island "Money Pit". Next I will be explaining some of the techniques that were used to dig up and dry up the "Money pit". Finally I will present three theories of the content of the pit and how the seawater keeps seeping in the pit. From what i been reading although many interesting things have been found in the pit which are supporting the idea of something special being buried there, no finding up to this point has been conclusive. Everything started when a mere boy was hunting on a deserted island off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada in 1795. In "Mystery Island Baffles Treasure Hunters" by Edwin Teale, he explains how, "One day, early in......

...7 Demographic Paper The Impact of the Aging Population Your Name HCS/490 Axia College of University of Phoenix 7 The aging population continues to grown as the baby boomers reach retirement age and this affects the healthcare industry tremendously. The need for specialists, more testing, medications, and skilled healthcare is rising along with this population. This causes the cost of healthcare to increase as well as the demand on healthcare workers. This summary will discuss how the aging population affects the area in which I live including: healthcare related challenges, the impact on the healthcare market, marketing needs and services needed by this population, and how these challenges can be addressed. Healthcare in Ohio is being impacted by the aging population. According to Strunk, Ginsburg & Banker (2006), “ As a result of the baby-boom generation—the leading edge of which is now turning age sixty—the proportion of the U.S population older than age sixty-five is projected to grow from 12.4 percent in 2005 to 14.5 percent in 2015 and 18.2 percent in 2025. Although the aging of the baby-boom generation is a key factor in the aging of the population as a whole, increasing life expectancy is also important” (para. 2). To be more specific the aging population in Ohio is expected to go from 13 percent to 20 percent over the next thirty years (ohio.gov, 2010). The increased amount of people that are age......

...Identify the targeted population. HIV/Aids • Gather data about the population demographics. More than 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 5 (18.1%) are unaware of their infection Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM),1 particularly young black/African American MSM, are most seriously affected by HIV. By race, blacks/African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV CDC estimates that 1,148,200 persons aged 13 years and older are living with HIV infection, including 207,600 (18.1%) who are unaware of their infection.1 Over the past decade, the number of people living with HIV has increased, while the annual number of new HIV infections has remained relatively stable. Still, the pace of new infections continues at far too high a level— particularly among certain groups. HIV Incidence (new infections): The estimated incidence of HIV has remained stable overall in recent years, at about 50,000 new HIV infections per year.2Within the overall estimates, however, some groups are affected more than others. MSM continue to bear the greatest burden of HIV infection, and among races/ethnicities, African Americans continue to be disproportionately affected. HIV Diagnoses (new diagnoses, regardless of when infection occurred): In 2011, an estimated 49,273 people were diagnosed with HIV infection in the United States. In that same year, an estimated 32,052 people were diagnosed with......

Objects: Dynamic VS Static Demographic Focuses 1. Size: the number of population in a given areas at a given time. 2. Distribution: population dispersion in geographic space at a given time. 3. Composition: the number of person in sex, age, and other “demographic” categories. 4. Population dynamics: birth, death, and migration. 5. Socioeconomic determinants and consequences of population change --- Population Study. Population Characteristics  Population has three compositions (in terms of static):  natural composition: by age and sex  spatial composition: by province and by urban-rural areas  social composition: by marital status, educational status, nationalities, working status, etc.  Accordingly, population has three changes (in terms of dynamics):  natural change: birth and death  migration change: emigration and immigration  social change: marriage and divorce, enrollment and drop out  Population dynamics affects the population composition.  Population composition can be expressed at a point of time, which was called time-point index;  Population change can be expressed within duration of time, which was called period index.

...Demographic Transition The demographic transition theory focuses on changes over time in the causes of mortality affecting certain populations, such as health conditions and disease patterns. Through history a decline in death rates and an increase of life expectancy has been observed, implying that societies go through a transition from one equilibrium (high birth and death rates) to another (low birth and death rates). This transition is associated with a rapid surge of the population as well as urbanization and can be divided in four phases: •Phase I. This phase of the demographic transition (high stationary) is characterized by high birth and death rates, implying that the total population is stable or grows slowly. Mortality is high with the prevalence of communicative diseases that have not yet been mitigated by modern medicine. Famine is also common with uncertain food supplies and poor diet, making people more susceptible to diseases. Poor hygiene, no clean water or sewage disposal also contribute. Fertility is high since there is no or little family planning (contraception) as parents have as many children as possible because few survive to become adults. Fertility is also encouraged by the dominant socioeconomic structure in rural societies with many children needed to work the land with religious beliefs and cultural traditions also inciting large families. Birth and death rates fluctuate with the ebb and flows of events such as wars, epidemics or droughts.......

The Oak

...Looking back, I remember running through the long lush grass pretending we were at battle and trying to take cover. I would always find myself behind the old oak tree in our back yard. This was my favorite spot. The thick trunk, like a bodyguard, protected me from the imaginary bullets that flew towards my body. I would lean against the hard bark and for some reason it was comforting to have something sturdy to lean on. It was dark brown, and every now and then a spider would nestle between the pieces of bark. Sometimes I would touch the tree to peek around the corner and my fingers would be sticky. I could never quite figure out why that was, but, nevertheless, I had the hardest time getting it off, a constant reminder of my tree. When my little brother, miguel and I weren't at "battle," I would lay beneath my oak tree and daydream. As I looked up I could see millions of branches protecting me from everything above. At the end of each branch were hundreds of more leaves that would gently catch the morning dew, and carefully allowed it to make its way to the grass. It was like thousands of stars in the sky as the sun caught the drops and allowed them to sparkle so brightly. This was my heaven, and as I lay there, I could feel the plush grass, like a snuggly old blanket, holding my body gently against the ground. Sometimes the grasshoppers would appear from around a blade of grass as if they were asking for approval to jump on my blanket. Every so often a leaf would......

...practiced a social security policy corresponding to its planned economic system, providing social security services to its people as best it could. China has implemented lots of reforms since then but there is still a long way to go. The provision of social security has important implications for the China’s socioeconomic transition and long-term development. A well designed social security scheme can provide the necessary support for people facing uncertainty to mitigate shocks and steady their consumption. Social security can encourage households to spend more by making them feel more secure. Moreover, social security can improve income distribution through effective public transfer. Right now there is a lot going on in terms of demographics. China is reforming and doing changes slowly but with its rapid economic growth this is definitely a big challenge to face. -------------------------------------------- [ 1 ]. Dvorsky, George.

...Demographic Transition Theresa M. Valenzuela SCIE210-1201A-04 Environmental Science American InterContinental University Online Abstract This paper will include a definition of what demographic transition is. The four phases of demographic transition, including if the population is stable, growing, or declining in each phases will also be described. The factors that have lead to the declining of birth rates and death rates will be explained. Described will be three living condition or environmental impacts that have been reached in a developed country that is in phase four. Two programs will be suggested that would assist a developing country to reach phase four. Demographic Transition Demographic transition is when birth rates and death rates go down from being fairly high to fairly low levels (Glossary, EconGuru, 2012). This most likely happens due to women who would normally bear children step out into the working outside the home world. This then makes the population grow very slowly (Wright, pg 120 2008). The four phases of demographic transition are as follows: Phase 1: primitive stability, Phase 2: epidemiologic transition, Phase 3: fertility transition, and Phase 4: modern stability. The first phase which is primitive stability is defined by the high birth and the high death rates. During this phase the population does not grow very fast at all and it is fluctuating ("Barcelona field studies," 2011). Birth rates can be very high due to a number of......

...Demographics and the Aging Population Shirley Bradford HCS/490 January 9, 2012 Jacqueline Leff Demographics and the Aging Population INTRODUCTION “In January 2011, the first baby boomers turned age 65. Over the next twenty years, the numbers of adults who are 65 and older will double (Stone & Barbarotta, 2010).” Health care for the baby boomers will increase tremendously. The older age group of 85 and over will increase as well which will make demands on the care givers. This is because senior citizens are more prone to various physical and mental illness as well as have an increase rate of dementia. Because of this increase in illness and medical use, there is a demand for this group of people to have the proper care they need. This care may include skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities as well as care in the home. According to (Stone & Barbarotta, 2010), this will be the driving force that “recognizes the demographic reality” for the next twenty years. The purpose of this paper is to show the demographics of as the baby boomers turn 65 and older, how this will affect the health care market as well as the changes in demographics of this health care. These changes in demographics of the aging population can affect the health care market by increase in the gross domestic product. Currently that percentage is 14%. As the elderly continues to age, by 2030 this will increase to about 28% in health care. Compared to about 10 years ago, more...

Oak Industries

...Oak Industries, Inc. Case 1. Is it unethical for a company to intentionally understate its earnings? Why or why not? Yes, it is clearly unethical to intentionally understate earnings since the management makes representations that the financial statements are complete and accurate. It is obvious that intentionally understating earnings is done to allow the company to later overstate earnings by using falsified reserves to cover the inadequate current period earnings. These manipulations and misrepresentations do not allow fair comparisons of the results of operations between years. In this case the misrepresentation gave a totally false picture of the success of its subscription television systems and interfered with the ability of users to correctly analyze the financial information of the firm. These misrepresentations impaired the decision-making ability of the financial statement users and defeated the purpose of financial statements presenting a true and accurate picture of the company. 2. Should auditors be equally concerned with potential understatements and potential overstatements of a client’s revenues and expenses? Identify audit techniques that may be particularly helpful in uncovering understatements of revenues and overstatements of expenses. Auditors are required to plan and perform an audit to obtain reasonable assurance that the client’s financial statements are free of material misstatements. These misstatements include overstatements...
