Briefly identify and provide an overview for the existing treatments, protocols, and/or screening efforts. • Treatments, Protocols. Screening Efforts: Describe the treatments, protocols, and screening efforts that are in place now to combat this disease or illness. For example, vaccines are used in an effort to combat influenza among the older adult population. Describe. • Implications: What are the implications of the existing treatments, protocols, and/or screening efforts for dealing with this age-related issue? These could be treatment-related, screening specific, or related to the complicated nature of treating this condition within an aging body. Think in terms of both benefits and challenges (e.g., needs or weaknesses of the protocol as it currently exists). • Reliability: Are these treatments, protocols, or screening efforts foolproof? Why or why not?
Basho’s disciples proved their love for him by building him a home. They also planted a banana tree by the hut that grew so well that Matsuo Tosei changed his name once more to the commonly known Matsuo Basho, meaning banana tree. Matsuo Basho lived in this hut for a few years, but he was not necessarily happy. By this point he was surrounded by success, but still felt incredibly lonely. The cure, he thought, would be to become a practitioner of Zen meditation. Everything turned for the worse when, in 1682, his house burned down, followed by his mother’s death in 1683. With no home at this point, he went to stay with a friend while his students rebuilt his home. His unhappiness remained with him, though, so he decided to do what he did before and set off on another trip throughout the land of Japan. Matsuo had four major journeys around the country. These trips lead him through many famous mountains and towns. Because Matsuo Basho was approaching middle age at this point, many worried for him. Travelling alone was a hazard at this time, and some thought that he would not survive the long treks between cities or, in a worst case scenario, be murdered by some bandits. Basho was aware of this and had even prepared a will in case such a situation ensued. Luckily, this never happened. The most famous of his trips was recorded in a journal titled Narrow Road to the Deep North, in which Basho travels on foot for over five months. He stopped at numerous locations such as hot spring resorts, temples, lakes, and natural wonders. During the entire extent of his travels, Basho recorded what he saw in forms of poetry. His poems left the internal theme they had exhibited before that point and instead focused on the natural beauty of the world. He wrote his most famous poems at this time: a haiku about a frog leaping into a pond. Essentially, his goal was to observe and record the elegance of the earth. In the same way, his path through the country itself was like a poem. His route was so lovely and exotic that tours of Japan are prepared following Basho’s own course. One might think that living such a nomadic life was tiring and lonesome, but Basho would disagree. To begin with, Basho was not always alone. During the trip of Narrow Road to the Deep North, Basho was accompanied by Kawai Sora, his old neighbour and student. Together they visited the sites that they had heard about through older poems, and due to Basho’s then religious state of mind, also visited many shrines and temples. By the end of the journey, Basho had completed the journal that would one day be known as his most famous piece of work. This was all because Basho did not view his roaming lifestyle as a burden, but instead thought that “Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home” (Matsuo web). Matsuo Basho’s worldview was very mature for his era. He believed that everyone was equal in that, in the end, the journey of life would always end in death. It is believed that his decision to live as a wanderer is based off of this worldview, and that he was physically living out the journey of life until death. A common theme in his writings called mujo, or impermanence, suggests the quickness of human life and nature. He tied this theme together with another similar idea often found in >
