The internet is the number one source of information for anybody, from young children to university professors. The internet is not just an application, but it has become a way of life. People meet, socialize and set the basis for life long relationships within the virtual environment. They work online or they shop online.

The internet was initially present…. [read more]

Museum Methods Term Paper

… Although I agree with the basic structure of this definition, I would prefer more emphasis on the level of required professional standards necessary to designate an institution as a museum. Many non-profit institutions are established to enrich our society including, schools, libraries and community social and cultural organizations. Many of these institutions are essential in the preservation of values and identity and education of our citizens. The term museum should not be generally applied to these entities simply because they offer public enrichment under a non-profit designation. Museums should also be very clear in determining the scope of the institution; their role should be defined with clarity and selectivity, and with a recognition of wider social and cultural purpose. Attracting individuals with comparable interests to…. [read more]

Lithium Transition Metal Oxides as Battery Cathode Article Review

… Lithium Transition Metal Oxides as Battery Cathode

"Although the basics of electricity were established in 600 B.C. By the Greek philosopher

Thales of Miletus and then refined by scientist William Gilbert of England in 1600,

the first battery actually dates back to the 18th century"

(Millard, N.d., p.2).

Modern Miniaturization

Contrary to the contemporary trend to supersize fast food portions, which Jennifer O. Fisher and Tanja V.E. Kral (2007) note in the article, "Super-size me...," manufacturers routinely reduce the size of electronic components. As this practice of downsizing electronic components contributed to improvements in integrated circuit technology and fabrication processes, it simultaneously led to electronic devices and related peripherals becoming miniaturized. According to Burtrand Insung Lee and Sridhar Komarneni (2005) in the book, Chemical Processing…. [read more]

Religion Entered the 18th Century Research Paper

… She had printed in Philadelphia a pamphlet of twenty-four pages entitled "The Life and Religious Experience of Jarena Lee, a Colored Lady, Giving an Account of Her Call to Preach the Gospel" to let others know of her work and her mission.

Unfortunately, the Dreamliner project has been plagued with significant problems that…. [read more]

Compare and Contrast John Steinbeck's View of Humanity Versus Nathaniel Hawthorne's Views Research Paper

… Steinbeck vs. Hawthorne

John Steinbeck's Cannery Row is a satirical and comical examination of human complexity and foibles. Nathaniel Hawthorne's the Scarlet Letter also examines human complexity and foibles but relies heavily on established religious notions of sin, guilt, alienation and redemption. Consequently, while both authors are highly skilled and believe in the complexity of humanity, their works are quite different in mood and message.

Compare and Contrast John Steinbeck's (Cannery Row) view of humanity vs. Nathaniel Hawthorne's (the Scarlet Letter) views.

John Steinbeck's Cannery Row and Nathaniel Hawthorne's the Scarlet Letter show at least one similar view of humanity but other widely differing views of humanity. Both authors use paradox to describe their characters, giving their views of humanity's complexity. As Brian Railsback wrote,…. [read more]

Formal Analysis of a Publicly Traded Company Term Paper

… ¶ … Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) has become a dominant retailer in the United States and has spread its operations into 14 foreign countries. The company has created success by offering low-priced goods and developing ancillary services, such as automotive maintenance, pharmacies and sales of eyeglasses and other vision products. Due to the fact that Wal-Mart has now attainted a dominant position in the U.S. retail space, its growth in the U.S. market has begun to slow (Naughton, 2006). For the most part, Wal-Mart sees its future avenues of growth as coming from foreign markets, particularly China.

In order for Wal-Mart to continue its impressive history of growth, I am recommending the following additional steps be taken:

Wal-Mart must adopt a stronger growth strategy in…. [read more]

Urban and Redevelopment Planning a Comparative Study of the Emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai Term Paper

… ¶ … United Arab Emirates Abu Dhabi and Dubai

A Comparative Study: Emirates of Abu Dhabi

It has often been recalled throughout history that it is said that the Phoenix will rise from the ashes if the saying has only predicted the Phoenix rising from the sands of the Desert then surely it would be proclaimed that the Phoenix was indeed the nation of the Arab Emirates. Dubai was a small fishing village in the 18th century and home to the Bani Yaw tribe however, history places civilization in this area during the first millennium BC. The museum in Dubai contains a collection that was excavated from Al-Quasais and another excavation yielded a caravan station that was from the sixth century AD in the expatriate…. [read more]

Harlem During 1920-1960 Term Paper

… Harlem During 1920-1960

The United States is considered for centuries now the "land of all opportunities." Throughout time, it has attracted millions of people from around the world in search for a better future and for new ground for personal affirmation. However, behind the glamour and excitement of the "American dream" there lie numerous unsuccessful stories that come to point out the different perspectives of a certain reality.

The struggles that have marked the history of Harlem can be considered relevant examples in this sense. This part of the city of New York has shared the image of a troubled existence, that of the Black Americans that erected it, and of the millions of immigrants who found shelter in the slums and overcrowded streets of….

Treating Child Drug Abuse in Developed Nations Research Paper

… (2014). For example, in sharp contrast to the prevailing negative views about alcohol use and young people in the United States, families in many European countries such as Italy and Germany have a far more relaxed perspective and it is not unusual for even very young children to partake of a glass of wine or to have a sip of beer at the dinner table.

Yet another important point to emerge from the literature review was the fact that the developed countries of interest to this study are not all homogeneous in demographic composition, and some demographic groups, especially minorities, tend to experience far greater prevalence levels of drug abuse (Leblanc, Drolet, Ducharme, et al. 2015). For instance, according to Eitle and Eitle (2018,…. [read more]

Dystopia the Idea Term Paper

… Dystopia

The idea of the dystopia is related to the idea of the utopia, and it has become a staple in speculative literature and film. A dystopia is a society that does not work for the benefit of its members, while a utopia is one that is ideal. The idea of the utopia was made well-known by Thomas More, and the idea of the dystopia in fiction emerged soon after and continues to be a key element in science fiction in literature and film.

Sir Thomas More is probably best known for his confrontation with King Henry VIII, for which he lost his life. He was a statesman as well as a political and social philosopher. His most famous work is his Utopia, a book…. [read more]

Spaceship Two Term Paper

… Spaceship 2 and the Push for Low Earth Orbit Vehicle Development

The Spaceship 2 project is the first privately funded space exploration project to achieve the goal of entering sub-orbital space. From a development perspective, this project was designed to encourage private interests to become involved in space exploration. More specifically, the project represents an attempt to explore all possible options relative to the future of space flight, both privately and publicly funded. Aiming to make spaceflight more accessible, Spaceship 2 carries a crew of two and up to six passengers. The spacecraft will be carried into space by a separate vehicle, dubbed "White Knight," which is in development stages currently (Virgin Galactic, 2011).

The Spaceship 2 project also represents a privately funded foray into…. [read more]

NASA and Integrated Financial Management Term Paper

… However, the landing on the moon and the decline of the Cold War, among other factors, initiated changes in NASA's direction. Budget cuts caused officials to become more concerned about the survival of the space agency. NASA was forced to subcontract research and development that was previously conducted in-house (McCurdy).

As funding and accountability to Congress became an issue, the agency's mantra of encouraging risk and tolerating failure declined. Congress and the public wanted to see successful and dramatic programs, such as Apollo. However, high-profile failures like the 1967 Apollo fire and later, the Challenger explosion raised doubt on the feasibility and safety of the space program (McCurdy).

As a result, McCurdy observes, "professional employees watched the tolerance for risk and failure decrease at a…. [read more]

Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin Term Paper

… They did so because they realized that the revolution needed support from all the colonies to succeed, and condemning slavery would certainly alienate pro-slavery colonists and force them to support the king. If the Declaration of Independence had included Jefferson's condemnation of slavery, America's history might have been completely different.

Franklin had a far great impact on the United State Constitution than did Jefferson. Those who advocated the Constitution took the name Federalists ("Postwar Republican Leader"). Opponents of the plan for stronger government took the name Antifederalists. They feared that a government with the power to tax would soon become as despotic and corrupt as Great Britain had been only decades earlier. Thomas Jefferson, who was serving as Ambassador to France at the time of…. [read more]

Health Care -- Lean Philosophy Research Paper

… Completion of Transformation

The transformation from bloated to lean is completed by disbursing the Lean Philosophy throughout the organization's management and beyond. This is accomplished by changing the organization's leadership from top-down structure to leadership rooted in questioning, teaching and coaching. In addition, management must adopt the scientific method of planning a step, either performing or having employees perform that planned step, checking the performance, then acting on the information gained. Finally, the organization must spread the Lean Philosophy beyond its parameters by creating a global strategy and convincing suppliers/customers to adopt the Lean philosophy, as well (Lean Enterprise Institute, 2009).

Benefits of Lean Philosophy

The Lean Philosophy ideally creates a customer-oriented human system. This system defines "value" from the perspective of customers, reducing effort,…. [read more]

Mathematics Z-Model Framework in Middle School Thesis

… This unique framework has 4 domains, and while this study investigates the Z-model's use in the mathematics curriculum, this framework is focused on improving and enhancing students' achievement in any course of study.

The four domains involved in the Z-model create a comprehensive educational understanding and framework for use in improving educational progress. They are:

  1. Brain development, and efforts in the classroom which can enhance/promote brain development.

  2. How project-based learning can be utilized in order to fully engage the student in the learning community.

  3. Data-Driven instruction (the second half of the breadth - vs. - depth debate). The students must be held accountable to learn a specific knowledge base of facts, figures, and formulae. Without objective measurement of the educational progress,…. [read more]

Perception of Objects in Infants Grant Proposal

… In addition, numerous differences in the way infants perform have something to do with differences in the processing speed, or the capacity to remember and compare information. The most popular explanation is central to the speed of processing information and perceiving things. However, why the speed of processing, which is the core during the perceiving of objects or social cognition, should have a relation to adolescent IQ remains an open question (Colombo and Mitchell, 1990). Some recent studies have revealed that infancy measures have a correlation with "speed of perceiving objects" at later ages even when there was controlled IQ (Rose and Feldman, 1995). Research also suggests that owing to the information-processing approach, the correlations with adulthood intelligence happen because the infant tasks are tapping…. [read more]

Forest Fires and Suppression Research Paper

… S.A. along with ground and aerial patrols that scavenge the area every few hours. In addition to those, public service hotlines are established so that anyone can report suspected fires to the appropriate authorities. In modern times, electronic systems of detection have gained more popularity as human methods can be faulted and fatigued. These are fully or semi-automated systems such as local sensor networks are employed based on the degree of human presence in an area and the risk of fires occurring, i.e., presence of small thick vegetation nearby. Detection systems may also use wireless sensor networks. These act as a kind of an automated weather system, detecting smoke, heat and humidity in a region. Larger risk areas of vegetation and population along with wildlife-urban…. [read more]

Service Marketing Service Encounter Analysis Essay

… In looking at some of the other Hofstede dimensions the area of Power Distance could apply in the fact that the waiter who was serving the meal being at the less powerful position, was very accommodating (Hofstede, 2009). They did not have to be hailed or called over to refill our cups, check on the meal, bring additional napkins, or food without any cues. Though this may be true of any excellent waiter, it was noticeably exceptional at Shangrila that the waiter was there to serve and was comfortable even to the point of their discomfort.

Airline Crew Fatigue an Airline Safety Program Term Paper

… Airline Crew Fatigue

An Airline Safety Program for Crew Fatigue

"Acme Airlines" (Acme Air) is a mid-sized regional carrier, for the purposes of this paper, that has undertaken to establish a "Crew Fatigue Prevention Program." Management has taken this action pursuant to safety concerns occasioned by several reported Acme Air crew-fatigue incidents and by recent tragic accident events at other regional airlines. Economic pressures have recently caused Acme Air to assign its nonunion crews (especially flight attendants) to multiple consecutive legs in an effort to cut overhead costs.

In the course of its safety review, four important new policies were adopted. First, management determined that flight attendant fatigue data needs to be collected from actual Acme Air operating environments. While some international airlines have been…. [read more]

This work reports a study in which 24 international students were interviewed in a research initiative that seeks to understand how international students adjust to the host culture and specifically how use of the Internet or Web assist them with this integration process. This work conducts an extensive review of literature in this area of study and examines the theoretical framework of what it means to 'belong' to a country or location. Research questions asked in this study are those of: (1) What role does Internet technology (Web 2.0) play in the international student's development and maintenance of a sense of belonging in a new home country? (2) What role does length of residence play in the international student's…. [read more]

Erm There Have Been a Great Thesis

… ¶ … ERM

There have been a great many changes in the healthcare industry in the past two decades, largely due to the globalization of the workforce and changing demographic patterns, and technological advances. It was interesting to think about the vast changes occuring in and to look at the ways in which technology, privacy laws, and stakeholder expectations have changed. The industry changed in terms of a reliance on hospital-based care to more emergency clinics, outpatient and nursing home services, and managed care. More hosptitals merged, and many doctor's have banded together to form larger, more cost-effective, speciality groups. One of the largest and most obvious changes has been in cost of healthcare. In 1990 the avereage cost of care per person was $2,800,…. [read more]

Solving the 1D Bin Packing Thesis

… The NASA antenna was created using "evolutionary computation" programs, so named because they solve problems in a way that mimics biological evolution, natural selection, and "the survival of the fittest" (2009, p. 23). It is also important to point out, though, that the "automatic" aspects of the design process are based on carefully formulated requirements that software engineers must develop based on the specific requirements of the initiative. In the case of the NASA space antenna, the "fitness criteria" for the design specified that the antenna must be able to transmit and receive signals broadcast within certain frequency parameters as well as the antenna's overall size; however, these fitness criteria to not instruct the algorithm as to what types of materials should be used or….

German Imperial Colonialism Research Paper

… German Imperial Colonialism and the Holocaust

Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Germany was focused on becoming a rival world power. This is because it was always striving to match the influence of many of the other European powers (most notably: Britain, France and Spain). These ambitions have deep historical roots. That date back to the very beginning of Germany after the fall of the Roman Empire. This is when Germany was a divided region and ruled by different tribes. They were united under Charlemagne (via the Frankish empire). This was the first time, the area known as modern day Germany was integrated as a single nation state.

Elizabethan Theater Research Paper

… ] [7: Samuel C. Bowles. "Shakespeare's Elizabethan Audience." Amalgam 2 (2007).]

The middle group in society comprised by far the most significant number of people. Some have termed this the merchant class, but, in actuality, it was a group of people that included both the artisans and the merchants. "The biggest section of this group consisted of the craftsmen, themselves -- button makers, carpenters, masons, blacksmiths, cobblers, etc."[footnoteRef:8] This group of people had little time for the theater for two reasons. First of all, they were confined by the working life they led because it required much of their time to remain successfully employed. The work was hard and long. The average worker would get up somewhere between 4 AM and 6 AM and continue…. [read more]
