Ancient Roman Inventions and Technology
Introduction
The Roman Empire was formed in the 8th century BCE as a humble city. Aristocratic kings originally ruled Rome and by the 6th century BCE, it has turned into a republic. Rome started to expand until it had control over the whole Italian Peninsula. However, their government could be referred to as an aristocracy due to the fact that only the influential families who had connections with the original could rule. These families were referred to as patricians while plebeians were the rest of the people. Ancient Rome had remarkable technological accomplishments and some of these advancements were abandoned during the Middle Ages: some resurfaced during the 19th and 20th centuries. Insulated glazing is an example of such inventions and this was lost until its reinvention in 1930s. Other practical Roman innovations were an advancement of original Greek designs. These technological advancements were split into various categories which were done according to craft. Artisans were would keep these technologies as a secret in order to protect their trade. A large part of the Roman inventions included military engineering and civil engineering. These enabled the construction of many auditoria, bridges, roads and baths among others. The Roman architecture, which also borrowed from Greek traditions is still very famous and is termed as “Classical architecture”. Greek and Roman architecture had some differences although Rome used many of the formulaic designs of Greece .
This paper seeks to answer this question by looking at the various Roman inventions and technology and the significance they hold. Personally, I believe the Romans paved way for many of the technology humans enjoy today. This is due to the fact that they originally invented things like concrete to be used in construction and although adjustments and developments have been made from the time of the ancient Rome to date, they still take the glory for inventing this building material. Most of the comforts people enjoy today as a result of technology were brought about by the Romans. For example, the Romans were concerned with hygiene and so they invented the public baths which they were known for and these were referred to as thermae. They later invented many flush toilets and indoor plumbing in their homes which were later subjected to more advancement to create the ones used by humans today. For this reason, it can be argued that roman inventions forms a basis for today’s advanced lifestyle .
Rome was a powerful city for a long time until its collapse in the 5th century AD. The prosperity can be attributed partly to its leadership as well as technological advancements it came up with which made it the most envied and revered cities of its time. Although Rome collapsed, some of its inventions still stand erect a thousand years later indicating how strong they were, a good example of this include the roads made by the roman empire and landmarks such as the colosseum. The impacts of the Roman inventions were felt in various areas such as agriculture where they constructed several aqueducts to help supply the cities and industrial sites with water .
Types of ancient Roman inventions and Technology
The Romans introduced the large and durable bridges that were later emulated by various cities around the world. This was after the invention of stone arch in northern Italy between the 4th and 3rd century AD. These bridges were built between the 1st – 2nd century AD. They were made of both stone and concrete and their structures were formed on the basis of the arches. The arches made by the Romans took a semicircular shape although others were segmental. There is a history of around 931 ancient Roman bridges spread are across Europe most of which were made of stone: these bridges had such sturdy construction that they are still standing to date. Most of these bridges were over five meters wide which gave the impression that they were reasonably large. Majority of these bridges especially the ones meant to carry water were sloped to allow movement of water. The Romans used alternating stonework for their bridges; for example, one layer of the bridge would be made of stones laid lengthwise and the following layer would have its stones facing outwards. Metal bars and dovetail joints were used to link these stones. Looking at this invention, Romans can be credited to have laid the foundation for the bridges built today even though these exact designs may not be applicable in larger bridges .
Another very important invention that was developed by romans is concrete and hydraulic concrete. Although many materials and ratios were tried out to make the perfect concrete for construction, the right mixture was arrived at by 200 BC. The invention of concrete opened doors for a lot of construction in the Roman Empire: some of the monuments can still be seen today meaning they have lasted about two thousand years. There were two main ingredients used to make this concrete which were lime and some special kind of volcanic sands that were mined near the Puteoli city. This resulted into effective building material, suitable for construction of structural and underwater projects. Examples of the great structures built using this concrete were the dome of the Parthenon and the harbor of Caesarea. The former was the biggest of its kind until the 19th century that time and the latter was quite a masterpiece engineers and architects. The Roman concrete also had better resistance against earthquakes. The mixture used to make the concrete was not consistent which made the density to vary. Scientist argue that this made such structures to disrupt the seismic waves, the colosseum stood many disasters but was damaged in 847 AD and later on in 1231 AD by strong earthquakes . Today, concrete is still a major material used in construction. However, some of the materials used have changed and many admixtures have been introduced. The consistence has increased and the density is rather uniform.
The Roman medical technology greatly advanced alongside other fields to an extent that a famous Roman orator named Cicero declared that there is was no other area that Men held nearly the same power as the gods than in medicine. Initially, the Romans didn’t understand diseases and their causes and so they employed various technologies to help deal with them. The Roman doctors came up with tools that even modern surgeons understand; examples include bone drills, surgical saws, scalpels and forceps from 200 BC . The doctors ensured they disinfected their instruments before performing surgery even though they did not fully understand what germs were or how one would get them from non-disinfected surgical tools. In addition, there were several herbs and chemical compounds the Roman doctors developed in order to accomplish cleaner medical procedures and make their patients as comfortable as possible. Garlic, sage and willow are some of the medicinal herbs used by the roman doctors. They also gave their patients painkillers and used vinegar to clean wounds. Some of the instruments mentioned above are still used today by doctors and surgeons even though some have been modified. It all goes back to the Romans since they came up with the original idea which has been advanced with time .
The Romans developed aqueducts to help in transportation of water to the various parts of the empire during the 1st century BC. It was possible to transport water for many miles from both the natural and artificial reservoirs right into the cities. This was possible due to the fact that the aqueducts were built to have a small downward slope. The water had many applications in the city such as in baths, public fountains and even sewers. Aqueducts played a great role in the Roman urban life and helped to support the dense populations of the Roman cities. When the Roman Empire collapsed, many of the aqueducts weren’t used or maintained and so they became damaged. However, there are some aqueducts that have been well preserved. These can be found in former Roman cities. Segovia, Caesarea and Istanbul are some of the cities in which these aqueducts are still present today and usually receive modern visitors interested in having a glimpse of what the Rome glory looked like. Today, although people may use pipes to transport water from their source in to the various cities and towns and even into their taps in houses, industries and other areas, the original idea came from the Romans.
Conclusion
The ancient Romans made technological inventions in various areas of life which made the empire stand and survive for the longest time in history. Although thousands of years have passed from their time, many of their technological inventions have undergone further refinement advancement to obtain the ones used today. The romans are credited to have pioneered many aspects of modern lifestyle. They arguably enjoyed standards of living closest to what is enjoyed today . Some of inventions that are associated with Romans were actually begun with Greeks’ and romans only refined them or applied them practically. Some of the ancient Roman inventions can be seen in different aspects of life such as medical, civil engineering, military engineering among others. In addition, other inventions still stand in various Roman cities and attract thousands of tourists who are fascinated by incredible technological inventions made around 2000 years ago.

SIT708 – Assessment 2 Sprint 1: Project portfolio & Application Progress

SIT708 – Assessment 2
Sprint 1: Project portfolio & Application Progress
Worth: 30% of your grade (details in unit guide)
Due: Friday, Week 9, 5:00 pm Friday, Week 10, 5:00 pm (Hard Deadline)
Individual Portfolio and Project Progress
Introduction
The Project Portfolio and SW application (which we refer to as the “outcome of Sprint 1”) is where you create your
notes about this entire unit, along with your mobile application, week by week. You will also demonstrate that you
have accomplished all of the required coding exercises (with screenshots as evidence). We have this Portfolio instead
of an exam, so keep in mind that you need to demonstrate your understanding equivalent to if you were sitting an
exam.
In the Portfolio, you will create a reflective summary of the class notes and answers to practical coding exercises for
every project topic from every week within our unit. You are required to present a written report on each week’s topic,
analyzing and discussing how the topic relates to developing your mobile system application. You will also include a
screenshot of the output of each week’s hands on exercise, along with the significant learning notes. Appropriate
formatting required. Note, this is due before the Project, because you must have covered all concepts to be able to
complete the Project. Thus, this earlier due date somewhat forces you to make sure you cover all theory + practical
labs before you can finish the Project.
Purpose and Tasks
The Portfolio is where you actually learn. It is the foundation of this entire unit. The science behind this is
as follows. Creating a personal summary is to request your brain’s neurons to essentially fire connectivity
and activate over new information. When listening alone, passive information comes in and will reinforce
or relate to existing information in your brain, but won’t form new memories on its own. Basically, your
brain says “oh yes, this information relates to what I already know about ABC, so XYZ is important”, and the
new information is never “saved” into your memory. Passive listening only reinforces existing knowledge.
By pressuring your mind to “create” something (e.g. written summaries), this process pressures your mind
to create and use new pathways in your brain related to the new information, thus encouraging them to be
permanent. This is the simplest way to get the information into our brains and have it stay there. So, this
exercise is for you. For many topics, you’ll find you’ll remember the topic for the entire trimester
without having to revisit your notes.

Management Communication

Management Communication
Section A. Introduction
I selected the scenario on the pharmaceutical distribution company getting an exclusive contract for the distribution of a new drug for treating cancer. The manufacturer of the new drug was Arab and did not have the capacity to distribute the drugs to its target markets. I think the case fits my interest on understanding how cancer drugs could reach patients from the different locations. Having a proper understanding of how the company communicates with its stakeholders would give me an insight on the communication process engaged by the pharmaceutical distribution companies globally. Therefore, the scenario fits well into my interests and future desires to learn the distribution of pharmaceutical drugs to the different domestic and international locations.
Section B: Internal Email
To: All Staff
Subject Line: Big Win on Araba Contract
Team,
I am glad to announce that we have been awarded with an exclusive contract to distribute a new breast cancer drug known as Complexia. I am very proud to all the efforts you put in the drafting of the proposal to win the contract. On working on this contract, I believe that everyone is going to work hard to grow the market share of the new drug.
To employees who were not involved in the drafting of the proposal, Complexia is a new drug for treating breast cancer that has been approved. Complexia compete an existing drug, Tamoxifen that is used in the treatment of breast cancer. Complexia will be used in the prevention of recurrence of the condition after and during the treatment period.
Complexia has two potential advantages that will make it possible to make revenues including that it offers a higher potential efficiency of treating breast cancer. The research studies have indicated that the new drug could be able to treat the patients suffering from breast cancer efficiently. Another advantage of the new drug is giving breast cancer patients hope to fight the disease. The new drug would help in lowering recurrence rates among the breast cancer patients. For years, the lack of breast cancer drugs has made many patients to lose hope and often die because of stress and lack of the willingness to fight against the condition. The new drug will give them hope and ability to overcome from this worse medical condition.
However, the new drugs has two potential disadvantages including that clinical trials have determined the efficacy of the drugs is achieved among a small group of patients over a short period. Also, the long-term product efficiency rates have not been recorded. The lack of research information on the long-term efficiency rates of the new drug could lead to undesirable outcomes that would hurt the company’s reputation. To mitigate on the disadvantages, the company will work with the treating physicians rather than with the patients directly. All staffs should be able to understand the merits and demerits of the new drugs and how will handle any undesired outcomes from the new drugs.
I know one way or the other we have been affected by cancer and we have an exciting opportunity to share this new drug with the world. Please take you take to go through the information on Complexia posted on the Human Resources homepage in the company website. Going forward, we will become partners of good health with patients fighting to become cancer free.
Thank you,
Rory
Section C: External Email
To: Shareholder Group
Subject Line: Araba Contract for Distribution of Complexia
To our valued partners,
I am excited to inform you on our recent contractual award of an exclusive distribution of Complexia, a new breast cancer treatment cancer by Araba. The contractual award is a big opportunity for Munnski Distribution Inc. in the long-term. The contract will help us in expanding the overall distribution operations to achieve our short-term growth goals.
Complexia is a drug that treats cancer through reducing the recurrence rates of breast cancer.
Even the company competes directly with Tamoxifen; it is different, which will help us to market it widely. Tamoxifen usually treats cancer through a hormone-driven approach. In contrast, Complexia helps in reducing the recurrence rates of breast cancer during and after the treatment process. Complexia will have competitive advantage over Tamoxifen because it helps to prevent the growth of new and existing tumor. The drug is not a form of chemotherapy.
Complexia will perform well above Tamoxifen as the preferred method of treatment as it does not feed existing or potential new tumor growth. Be sure to understand this is not Chemotherapy and does not directly attack the cancer. Munnski Distribution Inc. is keen on using our existing oncology relationships to improve the positive reception in the market. There is huge market anticipation for the new drug and we seek to capitalize the anticipation to enhance success. Complexia requires refrigerated casing during its transportation and any failure to meet the require poses huge risks on the safety of the drug. However, I have met with Lee Harold at Shipping Inc. who has affirmed their commitment to provide refrigerated containers for the shopping of the drug. Shipping Inc. has also committed to the shorter lead times to promote the delivery of the product to the target markets. Moreover, I am looking to a second shipping company in case Shipping Inc. is unable to meet our expectations.
I want to assure you that the Araba contract is a major growth opportunity for Munnski Distribution Inc. The contract is effective beginning July 1, 2018 and each of you can expect to see very short term control measurements being provided to you within the first quarter. Complexia is the newest addition to our product delivery line and I ask that each of you learn more about this amazing drug by visiting the corporate office on June 15th at 11:00 for a 1 hour lunch and learn with the representatives of Araba and the product developers.

Section D: Company Blog
Complexia is a new drug for treating breast cancer that has been approved by the FDA. The approval of Complexia brings hope on the treatment of breast cancer. The new drug will compete with an existing cancer drug, Tamoxifen that is usually effective in breast cancer cases, which are hormone-driven. Complexia is not a type of chemotherapy. Complexia is a medical drug that will be used in preventing the recurrence of breast cancer after and during the treatment of the condition.
One of the key features of Complexia is that it has the ability to reduce the recurrence of breast cancer making it efficient in the treatment of the condition. Research studies have indicated the new drug has a potential efficacy in treating breast cancer due to the high level of breast cancer recurrence in the society today. Also, the new drug is different from Tamoxifen, which also treats breast cancer. The product differentiation is good for the marketing for the drug. However, there are concerns on the efficacy of the new drug to a large group of patients in the long-term period. Most importantly, Araba continues to test and study Complexia to improve the long term efficacy rate.
Based on the initial research findings, there is no doubt that Complexia is going to save lives and reduce the patients that suffer from reoccurrence of cancer. With such great success within the trials and studies, I advise all employees to prepare for a significant growth opportunities within Munnski Distribution Inc.
Section E: Persuasive Letter
Dear Lee,
I am glad you have communicated with us on your concerns with meeting our lead time requirements as stated in our new contract. I wish to convey the importance of having a shorter lead time for this contract and we have ready to improve our contractual consideration for our mutual benefit.
The past contracts were agreed on products that do not require specialized and shorter lead time. We appreciate your efforts in meeting the set forth lead time requirements. However, for this new contract, I think a modification of the existing contract will help in expanding the level of orders and distribution that is profitable to both companies. Araba has awarded us with an exclusively distribution contract for Complexia. Complexia is new breast cancer treatment drug that has been recorded to have positive outcomes on efficient treatment of the condition.
In addition, the demand for the drug has been increasing on a daily basis from the different locations. Based on the increased demand for the drug, we project an increase in the orders by 8% per month, which would be beneficial to you. Meeting the order delivery requirement would also attract a 2% increase in the price of the drugs, which would grow your earrings. According to Araba team, the health standards also require the drug should be delivered within a shorter period to avoid any contamination and expiry. The new drug will only shipped overnight only in a temperature-controlled unit. I believe that you have the resources and capacity to the deliver the cancer drugs to the patients both domestically and internationally.
Finally, I want to remind you of the very meaningful work and commitment to the success Munnski for the past years. You are a valued partner with whom we trust and look directly to for your leadership on order executions. The new contract is effective July 1, 2018 so I am requesting from you a response with actions NLT May 15th, 2018. Thank you so much for your continued support and valued partnership and feel free to clarify any complications.
Cheers
Rory
Section F: Customer Response

M Rory Munns
CEO Munnski Distribution Inc.
Section G: Communication Strategies
Largely, the company uses positive communication strategies to engage both its internal and external stakeholders. The various examples will show how the company has benefited from the use of positive communication strategies. Negative communication strategy usually involves ignoring the feelings of the stakeholders, feelings, and having a disrespectful attitude towards the stakeholders. The company did not adopt the negative communication strategy in engaging the stakeholders (Zoogah, Noe, & Shenkar, 2015). The positive communication strategies used helps to create positive message and image on the operations of the company. The company maintained a positive engagement with the staffs and its business partner that was useful in creating a sense of focus for business success. Internal staffs including the sales people where motivated and informed on the content of the new drug and how they could market to the clients.
Through engaging the business partner, Shipping Inc. positively, the company was able to create a sense of belonging for the transport of the drugs by the shipping company. For example, the company had a close contact with Lee Harold who worked at Shipping Inc. The company communicated the importance of services of Shipping Inc. on the success of the company. Communicating their important role would make the shipping company feel part of the distribution process and own the entire business operation. Negative communication strategy would have discouraged them engaging actively in the distribution process (Luxton, Reid, & Mavondo, 2015). Based on the positive communication model, the management of Shipping Inc. would feel obligated to install refrigerated casing that would improve the safety of the Complexia. Based on the scenario, the positive communication strategies adopted through the different communication channels helps to create good relations with both the internal and external stakeholders and thus, increasing the possibility of successful distribution operations.
Section H: Communication Modalities
The pharmaceutical distributor company has benefited from the use of the various communication modalities including emails, blogs, social media, and formal letters in communicating with both internal and external stakeholders. For example, the company uses social media to respond to the complaints rom customers. The use of the diverse communication channels has made it possible for the company to have in place a holistic communication strategy for communicating to its key stakeholders (Zoogah, et al., 2015). The varied communication modalities have been effective in helping the company to relay information and respond to the concerns of the stakeholders such as the customers.
Based on the scenario above, the company mainly relies on email for communication with its stakeholders. The effectiveness of the email communication approach is based on the ability to communicate relevant information and understanding how to create strong customer relationships. Email communication makes it possible for the distributor to form strong connections with bond its staffs and external stakeholders such as business partner and the customers (Luxton, et al., 2015). Sending of official emails to Shipping Inc. helped to create a successful network for improved service delivery. In terms of social media, the communication method has been effective in understanding the concerns of the customers including their questions on the safety of the products being distributed by the company. For example, the company had received a social media inquiry on the ability of the new drug, Complexia to treat who had been severely sick after taking the drug. The social media site gives the company an opportunity to provide direct feedback and information on whether the drug would treat the patient (Batra, & Keller, 2016). In addition, the company has blog that is effective in informing the stakeholders on the effectiveness of the new drugs and how the distribution is done to enhance its safety. Therefore, the different communication method used by the company is effective in communication efficiently to the diverse stakeholders including customers, business partners and internal staffs.

Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT statement in your selected practice problem area of interest, which is applicable to your proposed capstone project.

The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).

Conduct a literature search to locate research articles focused on your selected practice problem of interest. This literature search should include both quantitative and qualitative peer-reviewed research articles to support your practice problem.

Select six peer-reviewed research articles which will be utilized through the next 5 weeks as reference sources. Be sure that some of the articles use qualitative research and that some use quantitative research. Create a reference list in which the six articles are listed. Beneath each reference include the article’s abstract. The completed assignment should have a title page and a reference list with abstracts.
