… ¶ … predominantly Latino Gangs, Mara Salvatrucha (aka MS-13), and the 18th Street Gang operating on the streets of communities across America. This study is significant because it will provide a snapshot in time concerning how these violent gangs operate in this country in ways that can inform and alert both civilian society and government agencies concerning optimal responses to the problem created by these gangs. Through a quantitative and qualitative analysis of documentary evidence and governmental statistics about the Mara Salvatrucha and 18th Street Gang, this study developed several conclusive findings on the negative effects of these groups in the United States. The Mara Salvatrucha and 18th Street Gang are becoming transnational criminal organizations given the fact that they originated in Central America and…. [read more]


Enterprise Resource Planning and Systems Integration Term Paper

… ERP and Systems Integration

Best Practices in Enterprise Resource Planning and Systems Integration

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are used for managing the many diverse processes and workflows that companies rely on to coordinate suppliers, manage production and inventory, better control costs and ultimately satisfy customers (Malhotra, Temponi, 2010). The baseline level of functionality that many ERP systems deliver however cannot scale over the long-term to what is needed by many companies. Integrating best-of-breed applications to legacy or installed ERP systems has become commonplace as a result (Sharif, Irani, Love, 2005). The continued growth of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) as a platform of choice for new ERP implementations poses an entirely different series of challenges for companies upgrading, replacing or installing new systems (Gartner, 2011). The intent…. [read more]


Shipping Chartering Term Paper

… Future of Shipping

The shipping industry has a long history, but the nature of the business changes over that history. It has been changing in recent years because of the pressures for change caused by internationalization, globalization, technological advances, economic shifts in different parts of the world, and so on. Where the tradition has been for companies to sail their own ships, carrying cargo for a fee, more and more companies are finding different ways to accomplish the same business, such as by chartering vessels for the job at hand, or having other companies handle the procedures as a form of third-party management, or some other approach to cut costs, reduce risk, and yet increase business all at the same time. The changes in the…. [read more]


Origins, History of the IMF Term Paper

… SRF: Supplemental Reserve Facility loans are to be repaid within a year and a half, and there is a substantial surcharge of 3-5 percentage points.

CCL: This is under the same repayment criteria as SRF, but the surcharge is less (1.5 to 3.5 percentage points).

CFF: This type of loan was designed to help a country experiencing a very sudden "shortfall" in export earnings (caused by world commodity fluctuations), and the financial terms match those of the SBA (except CCF loans have no surcharge).

In the event of a nation suffering a natural disaster like an earthquake, flood, typhoon, or other calamities, or for a country just emerging from war, the IMF provides "Emergency Assistance" loans. They are subject to the basic rate of charge,…. [read more]


Criminal Justice Computers and Their Term Paper

… The fingerprint also enabled the police investigator to track down the perpetrator of a crime even in those cases in which there had been no human witness, and in which other evidence was lacking or incomplete. The further influence of science - in particular medical science and pathology - led to ever more sophisticated techniques for investigating crime scenes. Biological and chemical evidence now put the noose around as many criminals' necks as once had eyewitnesses and fingerprints. With increased medical knowledge, a coroner could determine almost the exact time of murder victim's demise, thus helping the investigation. Having a specific window in time to work with, police had a better idea of whom to look for and whom to question. All of these new…. [read more]

Terrorist Attacks on New York Term Paper

… The Federal Census Bureau (2000) estimates that the minority population will increase from 28% in 1999 to 47% in 2050.

Acculturation refers to changes in cultural attitudes, values, and behaviors as a result of geographical contact between members of two cultures (Redfield, Linton, and Herskovits 1936). When two cultures live together, they must make certain compromises, yet still maintain their sense of identity (Berry 1998; Berry and Sam 1996; and Berry, Trimble, and Olmedo 1986). In mixed societies, such as that of America, cultural groups and their individual members must deal with the issue every day.

When these two underlying issues are considered, four acculturation strategies are generated. First, an assimilation strategy holds that the acculturating group adopts the dominant culture and sheds their original…. [read more]


Anti Terrorism Measures Effective Essay

… These vehicles may be parked near buildings, in garage parking, or near a potential target These and other situational factors must be considered in any anti-terrorist plan. They also should be filtered through the considered judgment and interpretation of security personnel. Of course, to the extent practical, people should be made aware of these factors. Indeed, it is well advised to train employees, particularly security personnel, to be cognizant of these factors. Going beyond awareness, relevant policies and procedures in how to react to these indicators are crucial to an effective anti-terrorism response. Obviously, this is easier said than done. However, short of direct intelligence or mind-reading abilities, these are the best security practices available to date. Above all, it is important to maintain vigilance…. [read more]


Jungian Phenomenology and Police Training the Methodologies Term Paper

… Jungian Phenomenology and Police Training

The methodologies selected for this study were the meta-synthesis approach developed by Noblit and Hare (1988) and a content analysis technique described by Neuman (2003) and others. The meta-synthesis approach allows researchers to draw broad substantive interpretations from various sources. According to York (1994), the meta-synthesis technique is a type of research that "systematically compares studies in order to interpret meaning, to clarify research foci, and to resolve existing substantive, methodological, or interpretive problems" (p. xiii). This approach allows the researcher to "compare and analyze text, creating new interpretations in the process" (Noblit & Hare, 1988, p. 9).

The seven-step process used in the meta-synthesis methodology developed by Noblit and Hare is set forth in Table 1 below.

Patient Acuity System Term Paper

… The system is, therefore, very efficient in its operations. The institution uses the resources that it has in accordance with the needs. In periods of high acuity, there is more deployment of nurses to cover the needs of the patients. This ensures that there is no wastage of resources and only the right numbers of nurses serve an appropriate level of patients.

Utilization of the system is of considerable cost to the institutions that depend on it. Considering the benefits that the system provides, it is particularly affordable. The institution saves on the resources that are of utility within its operation. It saves a lot by allocating only the right number of nurses to the needs of the patients. This saves the institution the extra…. [read more]


Adults With Learning Disabilities Term Paper

… 58). Many people with LD have succeeded in the workplace, often as entrepreneurs, and recent legislation is intended to ease the process of disclosing a disability and obtaining on-the-job accommodations (Brown and Gerber 1994). Adults with LD are employed at the same rate as those with out disabilities, but many are underemployed in part-time, entry-level, minimum-wage jobs (Blackorby and Wagner

1997). Like other workers, people with LD must cope with workplace changes such as teamwork, productivity and skill demands, and technological advances (Brown and Gerber 1994).

In some of the literature (Kerka, 2002)3, on-the-job problems are framed in terms of individual deficits: persons with LD are said to encounter difficulties in establishing routines and processing information correctly (Ohler, Levinson, and Barker 1996); often exhibit low…. [read more]

… Question #2

In 2011, the Federal Emergency Management Administration conducted a simulated emergency in order to evaluate the response by government officials. This was called the National Level Exercise 2011, and simulated a large, devastating "earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, encompassing four FEMA regions (IV, V, VI, VII) and eight Central U.S. Earthquake States." ("National Exercise Program") According to the after action report, there were a number of areas where improvement was needed, particularly in the field of public information. In the 21st century, social media has become an important area of communication that only recently has been incorporated into the planning for emergencies; and therefore contains a number of deficiencies. For instance, "At the national level, social media tools were often used…. [read more]


Australian Company Outsourcing Essay

… A desirability function that measures the satisfaction principle of the cKPIs is calculated by combining the logistic function and the exponential function (Note: Using this system, the Ymax and the Ymin do not need to be taken into consideration) (Lee, et al., 2011). A method for obtaining the synthetic satisfaction of collaboration was derived from the cKPIs (Lee, et al., 2011). This methodology can be used to analyze and improve on the collaboration performance of multiple partners (Lee, et al., 2011).

Research indicates that a number of qualitative indicators are important to an outsourcing relationship. Results of the 2009 survey of the 100 Great Supply Chain Partners were released in a special issue of the SupplyChainBrain magazine. The six-month long poll of readers identified the…. [read more]

Public Health Informatics Term Paper

… Technology and Health Information Usage between Primary Health Care Providers in surrounding underprivileged communities within New York City.

Managing an overwhelming amount of health information presents one of the greatest challenges to health care improvement in the United States. There is a growing concern in New York that underserved populations are not receiving the quality of care that they should be receiving due to the cumbersome task of data transmission. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has developed a plan to provide technical assistance to physicians that serve New York's poorer segments of the population. This program will serve those that receive Medicaid or are uninsured. However, there are still many underserved populations that will continue to be at risk after implementation of the….

HRM Challenges in Today's Organizations Research Paper

… This resulted in those executives being replaced with others who were more capable. It was just a process of replacing talent. The losses of staff were even at senior levels and that meant the senior leadership teams became smaller. This ended up putting more pressure on the general human resources to deliver the requirements for the clients. They had to work in better and more efficient ways. This shows that motivation is not limited to the position or benefits that one provides but is also linked to the individual capacity. Sometimes the individual capacity is forgotten or ignored due to the background of the individual, but that is only an injustice to the individual. One has to look at the capacity of the individual to…. [read more]

CSR Corporate Social Responsibility Term Paper

… CSR

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Corporate social responsibility is an important but "evolving" concept and thus while it may be easier to define it; it is certainly difficult to explain the motives of a company behind adoption of this strategy. It is believed that firms are not always interested in long-term image enhancement that results from CSR but some are simply looking for immediate financial gains accruing from spending on community projects. CSR, regardless of a company's primary objectives, is an important subject of debate in business ethics study since it is commonly believed that if a firm earns from the community, it must return the favor by giving back to the community. The idea makes sense and the argument can be backed by various ethical…. [read more]

Avian Influenza: If H5N1 is the Virus to Fear, Is America Prepared for a Potential Outbreak?

The effects of a bird flu pandemic would dwarf even the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. -- Marty Evans, Chairwoman for the Red Cross, 2005

Explanation of the Problem

The introduction of innovations in telecommunications and transportation over the past century or so has made the world a much smaller place, and what happens in other countries can have an enormous impact on the United States today.

Laboratory Medicine in Resource Limited Settings Research Paper

… ¶ … Improving the Quality of Medical Laboratory Services in Resource-Limited Settings

The critical nature of emergency medical services in Saharan and Sub-Saharan Africa is paramount as development during the 21st century is poised to arouse Africa to harness its power to become a global economic player. The Aforementioned emergency care is akin to emergency medical response teams that can arrive on-site with an onsite laboratory where blood testing, transfusion (if blood packs are obtained), where diagnosis of communicable diseases via laboratory testing is essential.

However, there are many issues associated with the availability of on-site diagnosis or locality over a large geographic region where a stand-alone facility with microbiology laboratory and diagnostic department is available. Economic constraints limit the development of such a network…. [read more]


Department of Homeland Security a in Governmental Reorganization Case Study

… Department of Homeland Security: A Case Study in Governmental Reorganization

The Department of Homeland Security is designed to protect the country against various threats. Most notably, it is designed to protect the United States from terrorism on American soil. This particular department was created after the terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. It is a cabinet-level post and the need for it was seen after the attacks. Originally, it appeared that very few, if any, people in the United States, in the government or otherwise, thought that the United States would be or could be vulnerable to terrorists. Many of the countries that had grudges against the United States or that did not get along with the country were shown by the…. [read more]

McDonald's Interorganizational Management Research Paper

… The organization is in partnership with a number of suppliers and distributors in its value chain. These tensions and challenges are as a result of the interests of each organization in the relationship. While, suppliers seek to produce and supply within the shortest time possible at the highest possible pricing, McDonalds has laid down preferences and requirements that suppliers must adhere to. This presents a conflict as the organization seeks to adhere to a given standard of operations for example, observing human right and animal rights, while at the same time maximizing profits not only for the organization, but also for its partners.

To solve this problem, the organization has adopted the McDonald’s Standards of Business Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct. This code…. [read more]


Retention of Special Education Teachers Term Paper

… ¶ … Special Education Teachers Analysis

Scope, Limitations and Delimitations

Retention of Special Education Teachers Analysis

While many areas in education are experiencing teacher shortages (McKnab, 1995; Merrow, 1999), historically, the retention of special education teachers in particular is a critical concern in many schools across the nation. The increasingly rapid pace of growth in the student population in special education will further exacerbate current teacher shortages (Sindelar & Rosenberg, 2005; Amos, 2004). As early as the 1980s, research has demonstrated that retention is integral to the problem (Otto and Arnold, 2005). Increased recruitment has the potential to be part of the solution, but more is needed. Even prior to the developing national teacher shortage, educators were voicing concerns about higher burnout and/or teacher attrition…. [read more]

Decreasing Nuclear Energy Qualitative Analysis Thesis

… Similarly, many would-be nuclear powers have had trouble getting their reactors built such as Bangladesh, Belarus, Jordan, Lithuania, Poland, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam among them (Schneider et al., 2013). In the established nuclear power countries, there is a lack of investment in adding new capacity (World Energy Resources, 2013). Where there is new construction, it is to replace aging facilities (Schneider et al., 2013).



Given the decline in the development of nuclear power reactors, the world continues to rely on conventional sources of energy to meet the current global energy needs. This continual reliance has exacerbated the problem of the global climate change (Schneider et al., 2013). Consequently, environmentalists, policymakers, and governments have continued to search for a sustainable source of power…. [read more]
