After two weeks of working in the public sector, she misses the benefits of a seemingly endless cash flow available when working in a world renowned, private academic hospital.

Tuberculosis (TB) is a potential, severe, serious, greatest widespread and extremely spreadable infectious disease that could lead to death in the society if it is not treated on time.

The City of New York’s population is just under 8,500,000. It is one of the most populated and crowded cities in the United States, so obviously this would be one of the last place someone would want to be lost. Being in such a huge city is already genuinely overwhelming for someone from South Dakota. As a family, we had already been to Chicago, a larger city. We thought we would have a pretty good handle on how to navigate through so many people. As it turns out, we were much too confident for our
person as they walk the streets of New York City. The rush of a city can often be overwhelming. Even though that may be true, 80.7 percent of the U.S. population lived in urban areas as of the 2010 Census. Living in New York City is better than living in a Haysi.

Throughout the centuries humans have seen cities rise and fall; each one had its own unique style and charm. Although no city is completely alike, they all have one thing in common: the elements that create them. Without these components, cities would not be successful and they would not foster memorable urban experiences.

New
rise in tuberculosis cases during the 1980s and 1990s brought new guidelines from federal and local agencies to help combat the disease. R. Stricof, G. DiFerdinando, W. Osten, and L. Novick (1998) studied the how well hospitals in New York City implemented these new guidelines. In their paper, “Tuberculosis control in New York City hospitals” the researchers not only examine how well the hospitals did with the guidelines but also how the new guidelines affected the number of tuberculosis cases.
The City of New York has historical sites like no other city in the United States. A majority of the historical sites in New York have political relevance that we don’t appreciate although we pass by them every day. The Federal Hall National Memorial, located at 26 Wall Street in Manhattan one of the most important historical sites in our city. It is where the foundation of our government was created. . Our first President of the United States, George Washington, was sworn in at Federal Hall in
sun brightly shining in the sky, and the chill of the morning breeze, I found myself on the streets of Times Square. Dressed in my Sunday best, which consisted of leggings and a hoodie, I determinedly headed for the Metropolitan Community Church of New York with my incredible friend Andy Tan. The sermon started at 11 AM and unfortunately, due to train delays, we were already late by the time we reached Times Square.
