Record results and findings
The resources needed to conduct adequate research revolve around data. First, a list of individuals with very similar backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses should be comprised. The list should also include those who have served time in the United States military. Software such as Microsoft excel, and PowerPoint will also be needed to articulate the results of the research while maintaining the overall database. In addition, easily accessible computers will be needed to record notes, adverse findings, or new breakthroughs in the overall research. A computer also provided an efficient means of information gathering when needed.
Surveys and evaluation forms will be needed to conduct the overall research in a through an unbiased manner. The surveys should not lead any of the participants to a desired answer or explanation....
Equally important, facilitators must also be unbiased in their approach towards administering the survey. A core group of experienced facilitators will be needed to provide unbiased assessments. A room, free from extreme noise and distraction will also be needed to help facilitate the overall survey. Noise or distractions may skew the overall results of the research and provide inaccurate data.
The personnel for the research project will fall into the following categories
1) Survey Facilitators- these individuals are required to help facilitate the overall survey experience. They are to provide an unbiased approach to facilitating and delivering the overall survey. They are also responsible for making sure all respondents fill the survey out correctly and completely. Finally, the facilitator should be able to provide answers to any of the respondents questions regarding the survey overall
2) Research Lead- The research lead is responsible for leading the entire research component of the project. They are to set deadlines, organize personnel, and direct the research efforts of the project
3) Research Assistants- The research assistants are designed to assist the lead in conducting research. They will assist in a litany of ways such as helping to set schedules for surveys, helping design appropriate research material and conducting experiments.
4) Data Recorders, Administrative assistants- The data records and administrative assistants help maintain and archive all data pertaining to the experiment. They also serve as the team designed to help acquire survey participants.

CELCAT, though, is just one of dozens of vendors competing in the class scheduling software industry as well as many open sources options that are free of charge, and the thousands of colleges and universities that have undertaken the selection process have done so largely without the benefit of a set of best practices that can be used for this purpose. As a result, it is reasonable to suggest that
Women and the Information Technology Industry: Where is the Attraction? Opportunities in technology companies are fueling the economy, yet few women pursue them. A recent Pittsburgh Technology Council panel discussion revealed that there are many reasons for women's lack of interest in IT, as were personal priorities (Czetli, 2003). "It might be an issue of self-selection -- women might not be risk takers," said Robin Steif, chief financial officer of Maya

Therefore, when communication possibilities were limited, corporate options were limited, and one did not see communications management perspectives that advocated the type of intimate connection between communications and corporate strategy that one sees in a modern context (Cornelissen, 2004). What this makes clear is that CC is
Shift Work and Scheduling in Aviation Industry Shift work and Fatigue in the Aviation Industry There is a circadian rhythm in every human being (refer to Figure 1). It basically acts like the body's biological alarm clock and it tells your body the time it needs to rest, to eat or even when to get active. The circadian rhythm can be interrupted by modifications in daily schedule. Disturbance in the circadian rhythm
