Functions of the Primary Package
The primary package is what comes in direct contact with the product. The primary package is be made to contain the required quantity of the product. For instance, one pack of juice is 8 ounces. The packaging must be free from leaks and provide protection for the product against hazards and during transportation. The package should be compatible with the product it contains and able to safeguard against degradation, microbial contamination and evaporation. It should also be conducive for dispensation, reuse, and recycling. Other than the above functions, the packaging material should be printable on the outside, and attractive to potential consumers.
ecommendation for the Material
The material used for the packaging should be a combination of flexible plastics, aluminum lining and paper called aseptic. Aseptic material is commonly used in packaging of high-end liquid food products such as milk and juice. This material is…… [Read More]
System analysis and design is the process of planning, analyze, design and implement the information systems for the business needs. "Systems analysis is a process of collecting factual data, understand the processes involved, identifying problems and recommending feasible suggestions for improving the system functioning." (Open Schooling (2010.P 5). On the other hand, system design is the process of converting the business requirements into physical system design. To design a system designer makes use of the designing tools such as the flow chart, Data flow diagram (DFD), data dictionary and structured English to build the functional information systems. The Broadway Entertainment Company (BEC) case study is a prototype of the system development life cycle where the group gathers relevant data to analyze and design the information systems. Although, the BEC case does not reflect the overall system development life cycle, nevertheless, the case study provides learning experience for the development of…… [Read More]
Constructivist Perspective of Brief Therapy
Understanding the basis of theories and therapy is a necessary element of the therapist's trade. Without some knowledge of why certain therapies are practiced, or where they came from, it is difficult to develop a personal theory and a personal view of how to conduct therapy. Since one of the basic concepts presently is that of brief therapy, it is necessary to see how that concept was formulated by other concepts. Thus, this paper examines how constructivist perspectives underlie brief therapy. This paper also gives the author the opportunity to voice a personal statement about how these findings coincide with personal constructions of therapy.
It is first necessary to understand the terms that are to be discussed. The two primary phrases to be discussed are constructivism and brief therapy. However, it is also necessary to grasp what brief therapies exist.

Lesson Plan Design: usiness/Corporate Ethics
This lesson plan will be designed to teach students traditional and conventional moral philosophies, standards and ethical convention in a corporate/business environment. As protocol students will be required to examine traditional moral and ethical standards as defined by philosophical and sociological standards.
The purpose of the lesson will be to teach students about the types of ethical considerations they might be faced with in a business or corporate environment. Students will be expected to have adequate knowledge of current events, and engage in discourse related to the morality of recent news events related to corporate ethics. The course will also require students to analyze their own experiences within corporate America where appropriate or the workplace and identify what gaps currently exist in the moral/ethical aspect of employment and asses how improvements made in this area might impact the workforce as a whole.

Comparing the Ornate and the Natural: A Study of Two Theories of Design
History often dictates societal mentality more so than current climate, yet in times of peace, it seems that the beautiful and the artful flourish. This very concept is debatable, especially in interior design, where the fashions of the time very often have a much-felt impact upon design theories and the way in which they are carried out. Yet it is in history that one finds inspiration, or the contradiction thereof. For instance, during the mid to late 19th century, it was against history that romanticism was born. Yet in the early 20th century, immediately following this period of romanticism, it was out of a societal need for simplicity prior to the two Great ars that a more natural aesthetic was born, expressed so perfectly by the architect Frank Lloyd right. The following…… [Read More]
580). The patient's individual test results can be compared with the results of the most appropriate normative group. The test is easily and quickly scored, given its multiple-choice format. Test reliability is judged as 'good' although the test data is descriptive rather than interpretive by nature.
The SCL-90-, in contrast to the Beck, is much more comprehensive and sweeping in nature. It measures a variety of complaints, rather than has the focused nature that is supposed to be the profile of a typical 'brief' assessment. The STAI State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) is more typical of a 'brief' assessment in that it focuses on anxiety, and seeks to identify specific mental states associated with anxiety, such as generalized anxiety, anxiety specific to a situation, and depression that can be masked as anxiety (Groth-Marnat 2009, p.590).
The use of brief instruments points to a disturbing trend in healthcare, namely the predominance of…… [Read More]
This approach is highly congruent with the guidance of marketing experts such as Wheaton (2004) who advises, "There are synergies between different lifestyle sports industries and their media. Corporations make equipment for several lifestyle sports, sometimes under different brand names. Clothing companies like Quiksilver sell to a range of lifestyle sport markets including skating, surfing, windsurfing, snowboarding and have been quick to exploit the potential of emergent and rapidly growing activities like kite-surfing" (2004, p. 10). Because the company also designs and manufactures the core sporting needs for these sporting enthusiasts, it is important to identify defining characteristics of this market. These sports are characterized by a number of features of interest to Quiksilver's and its competitors' marketers with respect to their various core product and accessory lines, including those set forth in Table 2 below.

(362) One additional note on this half of the duel research study was that the pair of applicants with and without fictitious criminal records was rotated throughout the experiment to reduce the odds that a single applicant would alter results if assigned the rigid role of ex-con or clean record applicant.
In the second half of the research study the same set of potential employers was surveyed using a vignette method. The vignette described the scenario of applicants who matched the (tester) applicants. The employers who were screened by asking for the person in charge of hiring at the place of business were then asked to respond to the scenario by answering questions regarding if they would or would not hire or consider hiring the applicant in the vignette. Data was collected utilizing the responses to the survey questions, which avoided direct racial comparisons but simply stated the race of…… [Read More]
M. Lin's release from MCF has had the effect of rendering his lawsuit moot. In this case, M. Lin was incarcerated at the time the lawsuit was filed, but not at the time it is being decided. Thus, M. Lin's cause of action fails on the issue of mootness. Additionally, of the six members whom were denied visitation privileges, five of them have had sons which whom were formerly incarcerated at MCF, but now have been released. The son of the sixth MOM member asserting denial of visitation privileges died after his release from MCF. Thus, all of the six members of MOM claims will fail as a result of mootness.
The controversy must be ripe for decision; ripeness bars consideration of claims before they have fully developed. A case may be dismissed as unripe where a statute has never been enforced and there is no real…… [Read More]
As a brief introduction of this study, environmental psychology pertains to the Correlational approach and linkages that are focused on the relationship between human being and their environment. This is a scientific study that are focused on the importance of natural environments that can be utilized by human beings that are focused on the development and manipulation of prioritization of certain issues and challenges affecting the environment. In this manner, the existence of the environment is influential to the world of humans for the fact that the degree of the environment's capability improves the welfare of the society to make the quality of life achieved. The concept of environmental psychology has an interest for applying the principles of design that can be made as an important structure in the environment according to Davis (2011). This can be in the form of architectural design and infrastructures that involves the…… [Read More]
..collaborative teachers also value and build upon the knowledge, personal experiences, language, strategies, and culture that students bring to the learning situation." (ibid)
This teaching procedure has the advantage of being multidirectional and not limited to the teachers directed knowledge only. This obviously allows for a more inclusive approach and for those student at different levels to express themselves in this environment.
The following is an example of how this process should work.
Consider a lesson on insect-eating plants, for example. Few students, and perhaps few teachers, are likely to have direct knowledge about such plants. Thus, when those students who do have relevant experiences are given an opportunity to share them, the whole class is enriched. Moreover, when students see that their experiences and knowledge are valued, they are motivated to listen and learn in new ways, and they are more likely to make important connections between their own…… [Read More]
Specialized labor is needed to produce a specialized product for the military. As such the cost of attracting and utilizing such talent can be very expensive to IBM.
IBM's indirect costs would consist of three aspects pertaining mainly to time, fraud and unexpected occurrences. The first indirect cost of time creates large expenses with IBM. The larger each individual employee takes to complete his task, the more expensive the services rendered by IBM become. This is because the contract has a set time frame. If the time frame for the contract is exceeded, IBM will incur a bulk to the expenses related to such inefficiencies. This could potentially reduce the overall return of the project. Fraud can also occur as employees could utilize technology or knowledge of the data centers to use for their own personal use. This could include selling the information to foreign entities or IBM's direct competitors.…… [Read More]

That potential of globalization can be attributed directly to the current business processes working to its fullest capabilities. Some may think that these trends towards globalization are new to the twentieth or twenty-first centuries. In a sense that is true because of the fact that our current globalization phenomenon can be linked with the advent of our new technology, financial methods and distribution channels to any point on the globe. However, globalization is technically not a new process that was created in or by our current digital and information revolution. Actually, not even the industrial revolution can be credited with the idea of globalization because the concept originated even before Christopher Columbus or Marco Polo. (Employees, 2005)

It is merely a separate agreement between the assignor and assignee in which the assignor gives its rights under the contract to the assignee for good and valuable consideration. Since an assignment is not a modification to the original agreement, it does not need to be in writing and signed by the parties to the original agreement. However, if the terms of the original agreement are altered by the assignment, such as if Kethan's terms of employment changed (different salary, different working hours, different responsibilities) then the assignment could arguably be a modification of the original agreement. However, in this case nothing about Kethan's work environment changes.
Further, the court determined that due to Kentucky public policy and case precedent, noncompetition agreements are assignable because Kentucky public policy favors enforcement of noncompetition agreeements as long as they are reasonable. This policy is designed to protect businesses from unscrupulous employees who…… [Read More]
A region into which Finnish organizations have expended is given by Californian Silicon Valley, the greatest technological hub on the globe. "During the past decades Finland has developed from an agricultural nation into one of the most technologically advanced societies. During the 1990s, Finland devoted many resources to technology education and research, while companies like Nokia were growing. Among the results are the innovative Finnish high tech companies now operating in the United States" (Embassy of Finland at Washington).
Nokia is probably the most relevant example of Finnish success in the field of Information Technology. The company was established in 1865 with the specified aim of manufacturing and exporting paper. It was located in a small community and, due to its necessity for large numbers of employees, it soon attracted more individuals and set the basis of small town. Throughout the following century, intense focus was being placed on the…… [Read More]
Skills must be honed that create a functional page that users will view and use as the client hopes them to.
Many new eb designers produce eb pages that seem to ignore fundamental principles of "good design": full of colored backgrounds, animated pictures, multiple colors and styles of text, and little to no navigation or eb-based structure. Even in courses devoted to eb design, students still produce pages that lack unity, coherence and emphasis: "though they [students] seem to understand (and can critique) others' efforts, they're stymied when it's time for production. Few have the skills or experience writing in this medium" (Yancey & ickliff, 2001, p. 180). Similarly, individuals working on their own or working from documentation struggle with being able to create eb pages due to the same lack of experience writing on the eb.
For this reason, relative examples, as explained in the previous subheading…… [Read More]
The store uses empty space wisely by filling it with store specials, and when designs are in progress the area has a sign that tells the consumer what is coming soon. Music is non-discernable (I don't remember if there is any at all) but there is so much for the eye it is not needed. The whole store smells like baking cinnamon buns, a store specialty (offered in the Cafe and in the Bistro as you leave). This makes the place really smell like home! Every inch of the store (excluding the warehouse for utility sake) it taken up by a display of some sort and everything is pleasing to look at and dissect.

Companies that do not choose to consider these options in their building design are losing out on some significant payouts from the government. They can also gain considerable tax incentives as well. However, there are still many companies in existence that refuse to jump on the wagon and realize the benefits of green design. This type of thinking demonstrates an antiquated philosophy regarding design work.
In recognition that the world must change its attitude and act in a way that will help to conserve our vital resources, the General Service Administration (GSA) has mandated that sustainable building techniques be used. According to these standards, the sustainable building will seek to Sustainable design principles include the ability to: optimize site potential, minimize non-renewable energy consumption, use environmentally preferable products, protect and conserve water, enhance indoor environmental quality, and optimize operational and maintenance practices.

The I/O structure is of great importance because of the reason that it makes the connection between the computer and the player. It consequently is the message of the designer sent to the player with the help of the computer. I/O is created out of input and output. The output of the game refers to the graphics and to the sound coming from the computer and the speakers. Designers are dedicated to having the graphics of games as good as they can because of the fact that people generally pay more attention to visual effects than to sound effects.
The input of the game refers to the player's interference in the game with the help of the contact that the player has with the keyboard, the mouse, or the joystick. Game designers had often failed from having a success with their games because of joysticks which had not been…… [Read More]
Media Presentation Analyzation: Design & Ethical Relationships
The war in the Middle East is an example of an on-going media presentation that is covered in the radio, television and on the Internet. More recently covered are the accounts of the beheadings of those kidnapped and in yesterday's news, of numerous people killed or wounded in the Iraqi car blasts in Najaf, Iraq. This paper will examine the design and ethical relationships of the media's presentation of the war in Iraq using the attached article downloaded off the Internet for the analysis. It will examine television and the new media environment of the Web, for both have become central in determining both the design and ethical dimensions of the media's coverage of the war in the Middle East.

I altered the experiment slightly to help make sure that it would demonstrate the issues it was supposed to demonstrate without adding extraneous variables. Specifically, I was concerned that if I walked around all day with a sock on my hand, every person who interacted with me would ask about my sock and that would get in the way of the main point of simply forcing me to not to rely on my dominant hand in my daily routine. Likewise, there seemed to be no point to introducing the variable of self-consciousness since left-handed people don't usually wall around self-conscious and worried what everybody else thinks about their being left-handed. So, I simply wrapped the fingers of my right hand in some first-aid gauze to make it impossible to use them and then I wrapped an Ace bandage around my hand and wrist so that…… [Read More]
branch of organizational design that I am going to investigate is participative management, which was an idea developed by Likert in the 1960s based on his observations of changes in the management techniques at the time.
Participative management was explained by enis Likert. At the University of Michigan, he started Michigan Survey esearch Center. In 1961 he published his New Patterns of Management that described participative management. He would elaborate on this theory quite a bit in later books, especially in 1966 and 1967. He had noticed that there was a new style of management that had arisen that was different from the old, authoritative style. Likert would then outlined four different types of participative management -- exploitive authoritative, benevolent authoritative, consultative, and participative group systems.
At the time, Likert's work was received well. He was successful in explaining a phenomenon that existed in the business world, so while…… [Read More]
There is little incentive to fill in a written survey -- or fill them in accurately or in details, as there is no face-to-face contact.

Confidence in the criminal justice system, by David Indermaur and Lynne oberts
Indermaur and oberts (2009) commence by arguing the importance of the judicial system within any country, especially a developed one, where there is ongoing pressure to improve the quality of the criminal justice system. Throughout the past recent years then, various efforts have been made across the countries to reform and modernize the criminal justice system. The two authors as such strive to analyze these efforts and conclude on their effectiveness, based on the analysis of the confidence revealed by the people in the criminal justice system. In this examination, emphasis is placed on the reforms implemented in the UK and the confidence of the people in the criminal…… [Read More]
Oracle Bone Script and Modern Design
In today's domain of alphabetic scripts, the Chinese system of writing is a one-of-a-kind phenomenon. ather than using a number of letters, the Chinese have come up with several thousand complicated characters or signs denoting words and morphemes. The Japanese, Korean and other similar writing systems, despite having a few characters in common with the Chinese characters, are able to work completely as solely phonetic scripts. Further, though the Chinese writing system isn't the lone-surviving logographic scripttoday, it is definitely the only such script that functions as the principal script for several hundred million individuals. The earliest recognizable Chinese writings can be traced back 3,500 years; however, there are several historians who contend that the script is actually much older. Irrespective of its true age, the language has undergone considerable evolution with time, but continues to maintain its archaic core, thus becoming one among…… [Read More]
Balanced Scorecards (BSC) are designed to provide insights into which customer-centric strategies are the most profitable and scalable over the long-term (Glykas, Valiris, 2011). Often customer-centric measures of satisfaction, sales and repurchase rates hide the real issues of customer profitability, lifetime customer value and cost to serve the most loyal customers (Kaplan, 2005). A balanced scorecard must take into account the entire value chain of a business if it is going to be successful and capture those most profitability activities first, not just seek to gain customers' satisfaction levels alone (Jayashree, Hussain, 2011).
The measurements as defined by Niven are not customer-centric, they are centered on how companies connect with their prospects and customers. There is a major difference in truly customer-centric measures of performance and those that seek to measure the value of the messaging produced. Niven is speaking of unique value propositions (UVP) that are unquantifiable by nature,…… [Read More]
he basic design of the fishing rod is simple -- a tapered rod made of six triangular-cut, planed, and individually tapered bamboo strips glued together along their lengths (Penrose, 2008). Flexibility and strength in the individual strips is mediated/enhanced by the positioning of the joints and the strips in relation to each other, and strip size and selection are the primary design and materials elements that affect the outcome of the product -- "faster" action rods have more flexibility in the last third of the rod and decreasing flexibility moving down the rod and closer to the angler's hand, while "slow" action rods have significant bends all along their lengths (Penrose, 2008; Barkley, 2012). Bamboo's unique cellular structure enables this flexibility along the length of the rod while also providing a tensile strength of approximately 15,000 pounds per square inch and a flexural strength of over 2,000 kilo-Newtons per square…… [Read More]
According to the Council of Mortgage Lenders, "In the sustainable communities plan the government has linked use of MMC with the drive to boost housing supply, thus further raising the salience of the issue for lenders and other stakeholders. The Housing Corporation has stated that 25% of all new grant-aided construction by housing associations should be by MMC" (MMC 2010, 3).
In sum, modern methods of construction allow developers to "create eco friendly homes, reducing the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere and homeowners' utility bills" (Lilley 2007). For instance, a recent report from Dixon (2006) notes that, "The innovative Quad at the Dunes development at Hadston, opposite Druridge Bay, offers buyers not only a two-bedroom home for just pounds 128,000, but also a look at one of the possible futures for new home building" (25). The innovative approach that allows for this cost efficiency is MMC. According to…… [Read More]
ut science is about stepping stones: the creation of theories and hypothesis, and the testing of these hypotheses with empiricism. If these theories fail, then additional hypotheses have to be proposed.

Indeed, most of quantum theory is hinged on the Uncertainty principle put forward by Werner Heisenberg. What apt that it be named the Uncertainty principle.

Comparison to oeing
The general perception is that oeing is the undisputed international leader on the aerospace market and that Airbus is generally unable to properly function and its success is only based on state subsidies and sponsorships. However, in his book oeing vs. Airbus: The Inside Story of the Greatest International Competition in usiness, John Newhouse proves the opposite. He states that Airbus deserves the title of international leader as they produce similar products of sometimes superior qualities than oeing. In addition, they do this by using fewer financial resources and with the aid of fewer people than oeing. Also, to prove their superiority, he cites the years 2004 and 2005, when Airbus outnumbered oeing's sales and orders.

A Brief History of the Company
Gucci was founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci. Gucci was an immigrant who worked in London and Paris. Because he worked in high-end hotels, he became enamored with the beautiful luggage he would always see. He returned to Florence, Italy, where he was born, and begin to sell fine leather goods from a shop in 1920 (Forden, 2000). The Gucci company was officially founded the next year. The workrooms were organized to handle industrial production, but the handcrafting remained. Soon there were additional shops throughout Florence, as well as ome and Milan (Bianchino, et al., 1987). The leather goods sold well because they were finely-crafted, but the leather was exchanged for cotton during WWII because of leather shortages (Bianchino, et al., 1987). The bags were marked with a signature Gucci logo. In 1953, offices were established in New York City. Jet-setters…… [Read More]
"Any brief definition of art would oversimplify the matter, but we can say that all the definitions offered over the centuries include some notion of human agency, whether through manual skills (as in the art of sailing or painting or photography), intellectual manipulation (as in the art of politics), or public or personal expression (as in the art of conversation). Recall that the word is etymologically related to artificial -- i.e., produced by human beings. Since this embraces many types of production that are not conventionally deemed to be art, perhaps a better term for them would be visual culture. This would explain why certain preindustrial cultures produce objects which Eurocentric interests characterize as art, even though the producing culture has no linguistic term to differentiate these objects from utilitarian artifacts. Having said that, we are still left with a class of objects, ideas and activities that are held…… [Read More]

There are a number of major concerns when it comes to the residents of rehabilitation centers, nursing homes or any other similar facilities that house people of higher age and/or that otherwise have toileting issues. While the management, supervisors and nurses (among others) of those facilities take great care to ensure that residents are using the toilet as they need to and assisting them with the same as needed, staffing and other limitations preclude there from being any assertion that the need for Depends, Covidien Wings or other similar undergarments are not or should not be needed. Indeed, there are situations where a resident is asleep, is generally incontinent or has lost the mental acuity to be mindful and aware of themselves and/or others. A common example would be someone with severe dementia who does not realize that they should alert the nurse if they need accompanying…… [Read More]
Human Factors and Interior Space Design
The objective of this work in writing is to summarize the article entitled "The Relation of Human Factors and Interior Space Design." This article begins by noting the importance of the human having tools that fit them well and that this was realized early in the development of the human species. Specifically, this article notes that Australopithecus Prometheus "selected pebble tools and made scoops from antelope bones in a clear display of selecting/creating objects to make tasks easier to accomplish." (p.3) Over the centuries there was improvement in the effectiveness of the tools as discovered by anthropologists and archaeologists including tools such as hammers, plows and axes. During the Industrial Revolution, more advanced machines were developed that assisted man with his work including such as the spinning Jenny and the rolling mills.
The methodology utilized in the study under review is reported to have…… [Read More]
Graphic Design Comparison
Graphic design has the power to shape our world and reflect our history. This is abundantly clear when examining two works of graphic design over a century apart. This paper will examine the similarities and difference between the handbill for the excursion tickets to Baltimore of 1876 and Paula Scher’s poster for the Public Theatre.
One major similarity between these two posters that have over 100 years of difference between them is that they both employ a visually arresting typography. Both posters use a font that is recognizable but hard to identify and depend on the use of large words given to words considered most important. “The 1995 posters Pentagram designed for The Public Theater’s production of Savion Glover’s Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk featured the wood typefaces used throughout The Public's identity” (Pentagram.com). In the case of the handbill, the largest and most important word…… [Read More]
"Valve sparing root replacements may be performed to replace the entire ascending aorta without leaving residual dissection behind" (Type A, 2011, Columbia Surgery). For type B, the usual prescription is blood pressure control, given the risks of surgery. However, endovascular stent grafting is often offered as an alternative and less invasive treatment (Type B, 2011, Columbia Surgery).
When operating, the femoral artery is usually selected for aortic cannulation. But in some patients, "although the femoral artery seems to be intact, its use for aortic return carries a high risk of cerebral embolism because of the atheromatous changes in the thoracic aorta. Alternatively, surgeons may use the axillary artery in the presence of peripheral artery disease or femoral artery dissection" although "the use of the axillary artery for cannulation can be troublesome because of the vessel's small diameter" (Yamamoto et al. 2001).

To take an example, an MP3 made with 128 Kbit compression intensity will have enhanced sound reproduction quality and bigger file size compared to a 56 Kbit compression, hence indicating that lesser the compression intensity, the lesser the reproduction of sound quality. (What is MP3, How does it work, what is (MPEG)
This accounts for growing acceptance of the MP3 format music files with the Internet devoted music enthusiasts since it is the perfect medium for receiving music files through the Internet compared to WAV/AIFF files with takes much longer time to get downloaded.

The company can not afford to cut corners as it relates to the development and…… [Read More]
That is, though overall job satisfaction is rated significantly higher than the itemized individual aspects, most items were rated a point or two above the median level of satisfaction, not exactly demonstrating strong support for the environment as it currently stands but demonstrating a great enough degree of satisfaction to make effective work possible. Further analysis based on the more meaningful findings in this study, such as the impact of administrative stressors on overall job stress and job satisfaction and a determination of how self-perceptions of performance impact perceptions of environment, would help to inform and clarify the findings in relation to these other items.

Posters have always carried with them the ability to communicate in a unique way. ith the right message, posters can inspire and motivate people to think about things in new ways and perhaps do things they might otherwise never do. Posters can reflect culture, as well as alter it. hen combining art with other interests, posters can become powerful tools of communication.
It wasn't until the late nineteenth century, with the advent of the lithographic process that posters became recognized as the type of art they are today. Though the movement began in Paris with superb poster designers such as Cheret, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Cappiello, it wasn't long before the art spread Holland, Belgium, London, and America (Fusco xiii). Famous American poster designers include Bradley, Parrish, and Hardy.
This new art movement became known as Art Nouveau, which was the leading international decorative style of the early nineteenth century. Art Nouveau…… [Read More]
A brief history of Medicaid and Medicare
The idea of a national health insurance plan gained political momentum in the first part of the 20th C. President T. Roosevelt was among the pioneers in making the health insurance issue a campaign matter. The Second New Deal crafted by President Roosevelt involved including the Social Security program in the laws (Piatak, 2015). The act tried to reduce the extent to which such factors as poverty, old age, widowhood and children without known fathers were seen as dangers. The New Deal had a chunk of its content expunged by the Supreme Court because they were either seen as unconstitutional or simply not within the jurisdiction of the federal government. Some of the acts such as the National Industrial Recovery Act and the Agricultural Adjustment Act were ordered removed, by the Supreme Court.
The medical insurance scheme that had been drawn by…… [Read More]
Pardun, L'Engle and Brown (2005) designed research to test exposure rates of sexual content to later increases in sexual actions and behaviors. The study examined 3,261 participants in the seventh and eighth grades. It utilized a self conducted questionnaire where the participants evaluated the level of sexual content they were exposed to base on their reports of their favorite media content. Later analysis coded each of the top media responses in terms of a rating for the presence of exposure to sexual content. These findings were later followed up with interviews regarding their sexual actions and behaviors. esults showed that 11% of the participants favored media programs with high levels of sexual content. Further correlation to participant interviews showed that this increase in exposure actually paralleled the increase in sexual activity. Overall, Pardun, L'Engle, and Brown (2005) showed a clear connection between exposure and later behavioral outcomes.

The literature review for this particular study is conducted in order to ascertain what, if any, problems, solutions and circumstances are present with the manner in which current piles are developed, used and maintained. The literature should provide the researcher with data on the different aspects of current pile technology, as well as information on any new ideas or concepts that might be currently in the works regarding piles and pile technology.
Piles are considered a method for supporting structures in areas where loads are not normally supported. A good example of a pile would be a support structure that transfers load capacity from an inadequate area of support, to an area of adequate support such as in shallow waters or in areas where the soil might not be conducive to providing a good bearing support capacity. A recent report may have put it best when it espoused "the…… [Read More]
job design and identify the 5 considerations in job design, providing a brief explanation of each consideration.
Job design is defined as the analysis of workflow and processes that represents someone's position within an organization. It deals not only with the actual tasks but also the impact that the completion of these tasks will have on the employees physical and mental health. The five considerations are:
Job Simplification -- this reduces the complexity of a position and simplifies the requirements.
Job Enlargement -- this increases the requirements placed on an individual and the tasks involved.
Job Enrichment -- this empowers the employee to have a more comprehensive role by improving the planning, organizing, controlling, and evaluation functions.
Job Rotation -- this allows individuals to work in multiple positions by cross-training them with new skills.
Teams -- this concept distributes responsibilities to a team of employees as opposed to a single…… [Read More]

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered a brief but stirring speech while the country was in the process of tearing itself apart in a civil war. During that speech President Lincoln stated a phrase that has helped to capture what democracy means. Lincoln told the audience that had gathered to dedicate a soldier's cemetery that the government that had been formed "of the people, by the people, for the people" would not "perish from the earth." In that phrase, Lincoln summarized what the founding fathers had hoped to capture in documents that shaped the system of government they believed was essential for prosperity and happiness for all mankind. The fact that the United States has remained in existence for more than 200 years does not necessarily mean that the ideals Lincoln spoke of are in existence today. In fact, many would argue that the concepts Lincoln captured in his…… [Read More]
This is important because many people, including the elderly are aware that they need to eat better but are not sure how to begin. These recipes give them a jump start into the types of meals that they can prepare.
Using these recipes can serve as a foundation to build new recipes using low sodium products and fresh foods as is demonstrated by the recipe section of the site (Nutrition and Aging Well (http://agingwell.state.ny.us/eatwell/index.htm#articles).
This site has one significant weakness and that is in the way the information is presented. It is important to keep things simple and short so that the everyday reader can understand the information however, in this particular site there is little to no information about why it is necessary to eat nutritional meals. A site that explained more about the process and how each type of food benefited the body would give the readers confidence…… [Read More]
These markets need the categorization of information assets and also the plan of interaction interfaces that conventionally were built up within the organizations. Nevertheless, as the diversities of the access to information and also functionality of these applications are increasing, the difficulties of the organization of information and also the user interfaces that are possible will also increase. Due to this, the architects of information are becoming increasingly concerned with the vertical application development to design and also to put into practice precise architectures to maintain users and also to develop and increase organically with functionality. In a number of instances, vertical IAs might principally be cautiously organized, task-based boundaries to customary end-user applications and databases accessed through a Web browser and customized to every purpose, activity and industry. A common example is the applications of e-commerce which are within commercial Web sites like shopping carts and exact term creation…… [Read More]
Product Management Issues
Quality of Design, Performance, and TQM -- As manufacturing design and implementation became even more complex, an integrative approach to the end product became necessary. There are many theoretical rubrics for this, but one of the more stable and robust is that of TQM, or Total Quality Management. TQM, like other theories such as Six Sigma, is based on the idea that the quality of the end product is the responsibility of everyone who touches the process -- from the creation to the manufacturing to the distribution. TQM, as noted, is an evolving process, and one that includes design, process management, stakeholder involvement and integration, leadership and management, strategic planning, cross-functional training opportunities, and the ongoing involvement of all employees. It becomes, in fact, the culture of the company. (Peratec, 1995). There are different aspects of TQM that impact the organization in slightly different ways, although the…… [Read More]

Furthermore, the proper selection of the team provides a means of determining general responsibilities for each team member involved. They will need to know the overall scope of their service while also knowing their overall design responsibilities as compared to their peers. In addition, their contracts will be a directly correlated to the contract and specifications of the client involved. This is important as it aligns the motivations of the work team with that of the client. By aligning motivations and incentives, the design team has their personal interests affiliated with those of the client. This will ultimately help reduce unethical practices and mistakes within the overall process. According to the British design management standards, the design team will want to establish effective means of communication while also electing a qualified leader. More important the team must establish an overall brief. The brief, according to British Standards, should outline the…… [Read More]

thinking is multi-faceted. As president and founder of Compass, a real estate company in Italy, my approach needed to be multi-demensional in nature. For one, Italy has high debt burdens which are often financed through governments and large corporations. Starting a real estate company therefore was challenging as I had to analyze the potential market in a manner that was unconventional. In many areas, particularly in the United States, commercial real estate is often driven by consumer demand. In Italy however, the exact opposite it true. Through my analytical ability, I was able to successfully navigate through nearly 5 years of recession like macroeconomic cycles. In addition, I was able to deliver profits that exceed nearly 60% of my peers in the industry.
Prior to my experience in Italian real estate, I accepted a role as a consultant at AB Studio Inc. This position, much like the real estate position…… [Read More]

...these designers placed great significance on clothing inherited from the past, including Japanese farmers' clothes designed through necessity and adapted dyed textile and quilting from ancient Japan, which Japanese would not consider fashionable. These designers presented them to the fashion world, gave the opportunity for 'the neglected' to make their existence known, and transformed them into 'fashion'."(Kawamura, 2004, 125)
Kawakubo, Miyake and Yamamoto are considered as the designers who made these first steps towards a new fashion more concrete: "hile Kenzo is considered a pioneer among all Japanese designers, Kawakubo, Miyake and Yamamoto are the ones who created a new style characterized by monochromatic, asymmetrical and baggy looks."(Kawamura, 2004, 125) the asymmetrical and baggy look of their designs is clearly influenced by the loose form of the kimono. Sometimes, in Miyake's creations for example, the dresses are completely shapeless and have random holes that offer a certain freedom when wearing…… [Read More]
