English System of Measurement Is so Complicated Essay

… ¶ … English system of measurement is so complicated to some people is that it has a different basis for different measurements. For most things, the metric system is used and is based on powers of 10, in other words decimalized. This has been the preferred European and scientific method of measuring since the late 1700s, and is not part of a standard system known as the International System of Units. In general, since the metric system is based on decimalized, or powers of 10, then units based on 10s would be more aligned in math, this might be conceptualized in the different between the need for 2 calculations versus 1: If George needed a desk that was 5 ' X 4' feet wide, how….

Metric System Essay

… Absolute magnitude corrects from the observer's perspective and measures an object in intrinsic brightness. The absolute magnitude equals the apparent magnitude as if it were a standard luminosity distance, for astronomers 10 parsecs of 1 AU, depending on the type of object. Absolute magnitude is like he luminosity of an object -- how bright it is irrespective of distance (e.g. The sun has a fixed absolute magnitude regardless of one's location in the universe. Apparent magnitude is the brightness of the object based on one's vantage point -- the closer one gets, the brighter it appears -- it is not more luminous, just closer.

d. Different Approaches to Problem Solving

Following are some of the approaches to problem solving within organizations:


Brainstorming is referred to as the creative technique to generate new ideas and it is a group activity in which suggestions spark off other ideas. It can help in identification of issues along with the ways of tackling issues. It is important for wild ideas from team members or employees to be encouraged rather than being criticized (Sager, et al., 2012). It does not reduce the inhibitions in other team members or employees because it can enable the management to consider alternative ideas within efficient environment within an organization (Boje, et al., 2012).

World Trade Organization (WTO Essay

… (Mengkui; Bingwen, 2006)

In comparison to the neighbor India which is a true democracy it can be seen that the political system in China is the base of its difficulties and not its cultural diversity. One of the factors that created the variance in culture is the vast geological differences that impose different life styles based on various resources. The geological position off resources and the fragmentation of the regions and the poor development of the infrastructure can hamper growth. There is a greater phase of urbanization in China now but this is lesser by the world level and there are vast regional and cultural differences within the Chinese towns that lend a distinct cultural ethos to the urbanization and functioning of organizations.

Information Systems (Is) and Technology Term Paper

… "Issues that were of major concern among IS executives in developed countries are: building IT infrastructure, IS architecture, telecommunication systems and network, and data resource issues." (Pimchangthong, Plaisent, & Bernard, 2003) The U.S., Australia and Canada all ranked the development of IT infrastructure as their long-term strategic goal.

Developed country's economies are moving away from the manufacturing base to a more knowledge and intelligence base, thanks in part to the technology revolution of the past decade. And, developing countries are slowly becoming manufacturing and production bases needing higher levels of infrastructure. The developing countries have the advantage of learning from the mistakes made by the developed countries when they were initially setting up their infrastructures. In many situations, the capabilities and optimization of the IT…. [read more]

… 315). Even when executives make the effort to plan their projects carefully, they may overlook the most important ones in their attempt to organize all of the enterprise's projects in a cohesive fashion. In this regard, Dinsmore and Cabanis-Brown point out that, "Most executives are aware of the need for drastic change in multiproject management practices, but many place the emphasis in the wrong place. Unfortunately, a great deal of such investment is misdirected into multiyear efforts to implement software tools and time sheets before dealing with the highest leverage points" (2011, p. 315).

There are three discrete roles that organizations must formally define in order to develop an effective project portfolio management system as follows:

Competitiveness of Sustenance Lithographic Printing Case Study

… Both were right. The reasons are not far to seek. The swing of the pendulum for one, lithographs had been almost too popular.

This overreliance on lithography to the exclusion of other alternative printing methods such as the introduction of photography almost spelled the end of lithography in Europe. For example, according to Beaujon (1936, p. 60), "French lithographers, warned to be serious like the Germans, began to copy pictures which they did, though with distinction, at the sacrifice of original design."

There was also a sacrifice of quality involved when these early photographic processes were used instead of lithography but the preference for the new technology was clear. As Beaujon (1936, p. 60) points out, "Photography became a serious rival in all countries, bringing…. [read more]

Balance Scorecard Applications in Healthcare Essay

… The whole mechanism is used as a strategic planning and management system which is used globally many businesses and all kind of industries as well as public and sectors. Implementation of this tool enables the organizations to redefine their business vision and strategy to achieve their objectives by improving their external and internal communication. Furthermore, this system allows them to monitor organizational performance in relation with their strategic goals. The tool was presented by Dr. Robert Kaplan and David Norton in early 1990s. As an extension to their original research in organizational performance management, they presented this new model after thoroughly evaluating the current performance management practices. Where it is argued that similar objective can be achieved by conventional financial statements and reports, it is…. [read more]

Bulling and Academic Performance Term Paper

Article Review of Paper by Woodsa & Wolkeb

School bullying is a truly international issue; in Japan there are thousands of children refusing to go to school to avoid terrible bullying while in America children have been known to commit mass murder when pushed too far by bullies. Many pop-psychology theories exist among students and parents as to why bullying takes place. This article by Sarah Woodsa and Dieter Wolkeb, titled "Direct and relational bullying among primary school children and academic achievement," looks carefully at a British primary school's system of bullying and analyze within it the popular idea that bullies are so cruel because of their own inferiority complexes.….

Strategic Planning in it Impact Term Paper

… , 2001). This shift is linked to better connectivity and cost-performance ratios in technology. It can also be tied to changes in applications: from data processing and management information systems, to individual and office support on PCs and office systems, and then on to electronic data interchange (EDI) and inter-organizational systems, platforms, and networks (Ward et al., 1990).

The ongoing convergence of computer and communications technologies, and the increasingly widespread use of databases, networks, and integrated systems requiring long-term planning perspectives, also stimulated interest in IT planning (Boynton and Zmud, 1987). Progressive hype and a follow-the-leader attitude have been sufficient to sustain a dramatic growth in IT expenditure in the early days of this technology revolution.

More recently, however, the large resource demands and the…. [read more]

Newest Vital Sign and Realm Screen Tools Literature Review

… Newest Vital Sign and REALM screen tools in health literacy

In a clinical setting, the quality and robust nature of a number of diagnostic tools are central to both accurate results and a medical professional's ability to assess the medical situation. For example, there are numerous tools designed to assess health literacy within the clinical setting. Two of these tools, REALM (Rapid Estimate of Adult Literacy in Medicine) and the NVS (Newest Vital Sign Screening) tool, have very different approaches to the same problem set. Under this rubric, the seminal question becomes one of preference, ease of use, accuracy of results, and whether one too or another will influence usage and robustness of data. Since these types of tools are primarily used by registered nurses,…. [read more]

Teacher Motivation Research Proposal

… Teaching is one of the professions that many and indeed probably even most people enter with a large measure of idealism. They seek out education as a profession not for the salary or the benefits (despite the belief of many non-teachers that teachers are primarily motivated by the long vacations) but because they feel that teaching is their vocation, their calling. And yet despite this initial strong motivation to teach, many teachers leave the profession after a short time, often after only a year in the classroom. For example, about twenty percent of new Vancouver teachers leave the profession after their first year (Richmond, 2005), which is about middling, with some regions losing up to fifty percent of their novice teachers after their first year….

Redesignation Process Rfep Research Paper

… Redesignation Process

In June, 1998, a Proposition was passed in California that significantly changed how English learners (ELs) were given instruction. This reversed two decades of bi-lingual education in the classroom and required all Limited English Proficiency (LEP) students to be taught English by immersion. Proposition 227's requirements included guidance that ELs be taught predominantly English, primarily, by sheltered or structured English immersion (SEI) programs for a limited time period. This transition period was intended to last one year, and then the ELs would be put into mainstream English-language classrooms (American Institutes for Research, 2006, p. vii).

… ¶ … capture issues germane to the organization at hand. Many are dependent upon the kind of information -- or the goal -- to which that information aspires. For instance, SWOT models (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats), are rather generic universals; other methods, Balanced Scorecards, QFD, STAW, etc. might be more appropriate for competitive analysis, executive or strategic planning, or as ways to enter a new market more successfully. The key to business analysis tools is the identification of needs and determination of appropriate measures to define and implement solutions to those needs -- whether conceptual, process improvement, organizational, strategic, policy, or a combination of the above

Marketing Plan for an Insurance Company Research Proposal

… Marketing Plan

The project is to create a marketing plan for Allstate. Allstate is one of the largest insurance companies in the United States, and they compete across most segments of the insurance industry. In 2007, Allstate's revenues were $36.769 billion, and their profits were $4.6 billion. Creating a promotional plan for Allstate represents an interesting challenge. They operate in some many segments, and have such a broad target market, that the marketing plan needs to be both broad-based and also fairly well targeted. It needs to be broad-based in order to drive business to all of the company's lines, and to market the company itself rather than just one segment. It needs to be well targeted in order to prevent competitors from exploiting a…. [read more]

Career Orientation of Bank Managers in Pakistan a Private Public Sector Comparison Term Paper

… ¶ … benchmark regarding bank manager careers in Pakistan. Islamic banking is a growing feature of banking in the region, and Pakistan as a nation has expressed interest in being the banker of that region. That being so, it is instructive to note that the managers who worked under the old regime are significantly less optimistic than the newer, younger managers working in the growth industry of Islamic banking. They also seem, if not satisfied with their career paths, at least resigned to their fate and accepting that maintaining their jobs and what vestiges of ethical behaviour they could was sufficient. On the other hand, bank managers who had experience banking in nations in which banking had less tumultuous history, as well as those who…. [read more]

RTI Response to Intervention Term Paper

… In short, early childhood educators as a group may be more focused on basic skill development and more accustomed to flexible and responsive service delivery than their elementary school counterparts. Therefore, it seems possible that RTI would be more readily accepted in early childhood, as it likely represents less of a philosophical or pedagogical shift at the preschool level.

Principles of RTI

Four key principles that consistently appear in models of RTI include the procedure of (1) entire screening of students in the school to detect the ones who are at risk of low academic performance, (2) a school wide, multi-tiered approach to prevent such school failure, (3) continuous monitoring of progress (hereafter progress monitoring) to document a student's progress (or lack thereof) and to….

Promising Phenomenon Dissertation

… ¶ … promising phenomenon that lends itself to call centers' ability to improve their own and their other business units' efficiency is the employment of crowdsourcing. Crowdsourcing is an online, distributed problem solving and production model already in use by for -- profit organizations such as Threadless, iStockphoto, and InnoCentive. Speculation in Weblogs and wisdom of crowds theory assumes a diverse crowd engaged in crowdsourcing labor. Crowdsourcing is the act of taking a job traditionally performed by a designated agent (usually an employee) and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people in the form of an open call. Furthermore, and as crowdsourcing is in some ways similar to open source software production, prior research suggests that individuals in the crowd likely participate…. [read more]

Occam's Razor Cuts Up Term Paper

… Occam's Razor Cuts Up

Occam's Razor is a general principle in philosophy and science which argues for simplicity. Amusingly, its history is not precisely simple. Despite what it's name might suggest, it was not invented by Occam, and appears to have been changed and adapted through time into numerous variations. This basic principle can be stated in a number of ways, such as "pluralities ought not be supposed without necessity" (Wikipedia, 2004), or Einstein's formation, which suggested "The supreme goal of all theory is to make the irreducible basic elements as simple and as few as possible without having to surrender the adequate representation of a single datum of experience." (Wikipedia, 2004) Another important aspect of the theory, as it generally is used, is that…. [read more]

Risk Management and Analysis Process and Policy Before Technology Research Proposal

… ¶ … released by the FBI and the Computer Security Institute (CSI), over 70% of all attacks on sensitive data and resources reported by organizations occurred from within the organization itself. Implementing an internal security policy appears to be just as important as an external strategy. The objective of this report is to highlight the necessity of internal processes and policy alongside technology when managing and mitigating risk. The author narrates the problems of security from the unseen forces in an individual that influence thought, behavior and personality. Once organizations truly understand the psychology behind the motivations of software engineers and developers, risk analysis and risk management strategies will become more efficient. The research contained in this report establishes that there is some connection between…. [read more]

Suggestions for Achieving Alignment of Academic Standards with ELL Proficiency Standards: An Overview

The development and implementation of standards-based instruction that allows for adequate English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction and other English Language Learning (ELL) necessities has had a complex and arduous history. This paper examines in brief some of the ways ELL standards and general academic standard have interacted in the past. It also examines historical and current incentives for implementing standards-based instruction in both areas, and offers some suggestions as to how an integration of the two sets of standards can be achieved in schools based on guidelines already implemented in some areas.

True Disability There Has Been a Great Term Paper

… True Disability

There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether or not students who have been identified with a learning disability are truly disabled or are they simply low achievers, non-English speakers, or possibly victims of poor reading and math instruction. Kaufman, Hallahan and Wills (1998) in their article, "Politics science and the future of learning disabilities" posit that advocacy for those labeled as learning disabled has taken on a more political position than a scientific one, while readily acknowledging that there have been some advancements in the field but not to the level that has significantly informed the research and as such affected real change for the students. Further, the writers acknowledge that in order for real advancement to transpire within…. [read more]

Psychologist Erik H. Erickson's 8 Ages of Man Across Two Separate Cultures Term Paper

… Erickson Studies

According to psychologist Erik Erickson, all humans develop through eight psychosocial stages during their life span: trust vs. mistrust; autonomy vs. shame and doubt; initiative vs. guilt; Industry vs. Inferiority; Identity vs. Identity Confusion; Intimacy vs. Isolation; Generativity vs. Stagnation and Integrity vs. Despair. Although humans from different societies and cultures will go through these stages, it does not necessarily mean that the parameters of each of these stages will be the same. For example, in some cultures, intimacy is emphasized more over isolation than others. Two examples of these variations are the autonomy expectations of individualistic vs. collectivist cultures and degree of intimacy in friendship.

When individuals declare they are autonomous, they are stating that rather than being controled or dictated to…. [read more]
