Then, read over a wide selection of emails that you received and sent over the past week or so, in both personal and professional contexts, and assess how well those emails follow the etiquette outlined both in the textbook and on the website. Write one paragraph analyzing the emails you've received and one paragraph analyzing those you've sent.

In analyzing the e-mails received over the last week, there are several areas for improvement both with co-workers within the company I work for, and with friends who frequently send very large files across personal and private e-mail systems.

The use of Search Engine Marketing

Most business organizations are supposed to ensure the adoption of a suitable Marketing Strategy to ensure the attainment of their goals. The nature of business determines the strategy to be implemented, as different business transactions will suit different organizational needs.

What makes the article igor in qualitative social work research: A review of strategies used in published articles (Barusch, Gringeri, George, 2011) one that catches the reader's attention is that it is the epitome of a qualitative study accomplished with quantitative results.

Search Me Taylor Neil Search

Its success might be called an 'anti-marketing' campaign given that it was done without careful marketing segmentation -- it was marketed to all consumers, with a unified image. Although it does not fit the conventional definitions of either service or product design, and in many ways seems to exist in undefined virtual space, it still possesses a loyal core of users.

The goal of every branding campaign, Taylor suggests, is to create a clear brand image. The simpler the object, like a soda, a hamburger, or a search engine, and the greater the number of competitors or substitutes, the clearer a product's image must be in the mind of the consumer. Clutter and added amenities do not necessarily add to the perceived, unique value of the product. Make sure that the product delivers on its promises. Because Google has done all of these things, it is hard to imagine a…… [Read More]

The Google Scholar search engine appears more comprehensive in scope relative to ProQuest as well. This is attributable to the greater number of courses Google indexes from an academic standpoint to gain this data. While ProQuest does not have as much content accessible using Boolean search parameters as Google Scholar, of the documents it indexes, a higher percentage of them are accessible. There is also a greater level of flexibility in how citations are downloaded on ProQuest relative to Google Scholar. Support for APA, AMA, Turabian, and Harvard formats is available on ProQuest for example and not available on Google Scholar. This can be a significant time saving feature when larger papers are being researched.

One, http://accountingeducation.com/index.cfm, is an "information filter" for academic accounting. his portal-type web site contains information on worldwide accounting news, reviews of recent accounting and finance texts, lists of accounting jobs available, and academic positions available which relate to accounting, a database of worldwide accounting and finance conferences and schooling, and a database of accounting journals and publications. It also includes numerous pages of links to just about any kind of accounting information imaginable, and an extensive library of accounting white papers, journal articles, and other accounting information for the public. Visitors can register for the free "Double Entries" newswire newsletter, and a search function that allows visitors to search specific areas of the site for detailed accounting related information. he home page also features a "book of the week," with a new book reviewed each…… [Read More]

The search of the phrase ACCOUNTING EDUCATION on Google.com resulted in 2,520,000 hits. The first hit was accountingeductaion.com, which was previously summarized. Another hit was http://www.accounting-education.com/,which is very similar to the previous link, but not the same one. This site includes information on quarterly CPA exams which the student or CPA can print and complete, and then send to the company for grading. The site also includes information on the products the company offers, contact information, frequently asked questions about their services, an area where the current tests can be downloaded, and an order page where products can be ordered and paid for online. Orders can be completed online, by a toll-free 800 number, by fax, or by mail. The different CPA exams that the company provides are from the Journal of Accountancy, Strategic Finance, and Practical Accountant, and they offer exams for the last nine quarters. The company which operates the web site is located in Greensboro, NC.

Another hit is the Henry B. Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa's accounting program. http://www.biz.uiowa.edu/accounting/outreach/mcglad.html. The site includes information on the program, and a listing of the college board members. There is also a link to a web cast from November 2002, which highlights recent accounting scandals. The home page also contains a short history of the program, and upcoming seminars and events. There are links to the mission of the department, working papers for students and professors, information on the Sidney G. Winter Lecture Series, (which is outdated, it occurred in September 2002), and educational resources which include links to other accounting information and agencies, and a featured question which a professor answers.

These two different searches provided such different results because of the way search engines work. The phrase with quotes around it searched for those two specific words together on the site, while the phrase without quotes simply searched for each word somewhere in the site. Therefore, there were many more results of the single words, rather than the phrase.

Narrative Describing Using Key Word Searches

search I intended to use various keyword searches in order to find the relevant literature regarding how lifestyle modification compared to no modification in liver transplant patients, with a view to the impact on quality of life over 4 months post-operation. I was utilizing an intervention PICO and the reviews that I deemed relevant were systematic, reviews with meta-analysis of randomized control trials, case control studies, qualitative studies, and articles in which expert opinion was pronounced. Thus the purpose of these searches was to find literature which represented the extent of academic work on the subject in recent years.

Purpose Statement

The purpose of this review was to discover primary sources in various databases such as Medline, Cinahl, Embase, PsychINFO, and PubMed. Secondary sources were also targeted using Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Medline was utilized primarily because it is…… [Read More]

Key word searches included various phrases such as "post liver transplant patient," "post-operative liver transplant patient," "change in diet," "nutrient levels," "quality of life," and any combination of the aforementioned among other similarly worded combinations of key words. Key words were culled from various commonalities among primary reading at the beginning of this research.

PICO

The PICO searches were generated using combinations of "post liver transplant patient" and "life style modification" and "quality of life" and various combinations with results being works such as Masala et al. (2012) study entitled "Quality of life and physical activity in liver transplantation patients: results of a case-control study in Italy." This article was helpful in pointing the way to other articles as it also contained key words that would later be used to generate further results in the search engines and databases mentioned above.

Google Cluster Architecture

"Web Search for a Planet: The Google Cluster Architecture," IEEE Micro, Mar-Apr., 2003, 22-28.

The central idea of this IEEE Micro article is that Google has designed a search engine which is energy efficient, reliable, and so cost effective that it allows them to provide superior service. The article begins by pointing out that every request to a search engine requires complex computations. When Google gets a request, it reads hundreds of megabytes of data and uses tens of billions of CPU cycles. With thousands of such requests happening every second, Google's infrastructure compares in size to a supercomputer installation! Energy efficiency and price-performance ratio are the most important factors to its design. Easy parallelism is the main priority so that different queries can run on different processors (the overall index is partitioned so that a single query can use multiple processors).

Google's architecture provides reliability by…… [Read More]

String Matching Algorithm String Searching

Words: 1884 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 31904999



Future Considerations

The most recent developments are focused on pattern matching where not only are issues such as string and alpha numerals sought for and matched, but also more complicated patterns such as trees, graphs, arrays, and point sets.

The objective, here, is to find non-trivial properties and then from these perform closely matching combinatorial patterns. Much research is being performed on this, and the area has progressed from being simply algorithmic in content to one that has become complex with significant applications. Applications are being extended to fields that include molecular biology and genetic engineering, as well as information retrieval, pattern recognition, biometric authentication (such as speech and speaker recognition, feature recognition, and so forth), program compilation, data compression, program analysis, and system security.

Summary and Conclusions

String-searching algorithms are used for matching words, patterns, and concepts from string to text. In order to be as effective as possible,…… [Read More]

Long Run Performance of the Firm After Seasoned Equity Offering

Words: 3073 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50653129

SEO

This literature review looks at the question of SEO return characteristics of large and small firms from several different perspectives. The goal is to determine whether small firms are more effected by the equity offering than larger firms. This section examines the overall evidence for performance issues (including financial anomalies and manager performance) and whether research indicates evidence for a rational or behavioral explanation.

Financial Anomalies

A firm's success in a seasoned equity or initial public offering is determined by many factors that are seemingly disconnected, but which the research shows are interdependent. Among these are the anomalies that cannot adequately be described by rational theories of pricing. As an example, Li (2012) suggests that the cyclical nature of the economy has a far greater effect on certain types of offerings (IPOs and SEOs among them) than was previously thought. Again, the relatively unpredictable nature of firms and investors…… [Read More]

Hybrid engines and electric and other forms of fuel are being tried the world over on account of multiple problems. It is not only for vehicles but also for the industries that use fossil fuels and chemicals for manufacture. The primary problem is the pollution of the air, water and the entire planet on account of fossil fuel use. Not all fossil fuel forms are harmful. For example CNG, compressed natural gas is less harmful. The use of fossil fuel has deadly repercussions on human, animal and plant health. In other words all life on the planet can be at jeopardy.

The ideal scenario is the particular enterprise's website to get listed on the first page of search engine results when the targeted keywords and phrases are searched and for this the enterprise's website needs to be optimised for these terms.

Social Perceptions and Biases

Social Perceptions and Bias

Within any organization there is a dual cognitive and emotional role in making decisions. In the 21st century global environment, this role is accentuated and allows far less time than ever before. Typically, decision making is the result of stimuli, then choosing from alternatives based on past and current knowledge, then making a final choice of an action or group of action. One way of looking at the decision making process is that it is ingrained within the human psychological perspective, which makes it both unique and complex for the individual or organization involved. esearchers Seo and Barrett (2007) present a theory that contrary to the popular belief that emotions (feelings) are dysfunctional in decision making, in fact, research shows that individuals who are able to identify and distinguish among feelings have a greater chance of making successful and discreet decisions by looking critically at their…… [Read More]

Understanding How Databases Work

Words: 928 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63826273

Searching

All databases comprise of records described by search engines used in searching these records or data. While search engines appear to differ, the underlying principles of database searching and strategies are common. The first principle argues that before an individual begins to search for any information, he/she should develop a search strategy. This involves brainstorming about the keyword to be used (Ullman, 2011). It is imperative to take into account possible synonyms such as automobile and car, alternative spelling like labor and labor, organization and organization, and plurals. The second principle applies to people searching for older materials. This principle requires researchers to consider changes in terminologies. This could be because of developing complex vocabularies and modifying them into appropriate languages.

The Boolean principle stems from the George Boole who focused in writing about a principle designed to elicit better search results through the formulation of precise queries. This…… [Read More]

Google vs. Microsoft (Bing): Search engine wars

Google is not simply a search engine company: it is synonymous with searching the web much like Coca-Cola is synonymous with soda. However, the software giant Microsoft is attempting to outflank Google by introducing a rival search engine called Bing. Microsoft has floundered in the past when it has moved outside of its software 'comfort zone.' Despite becoming an incredibly successful company thanks to Microsoft Windows, it has failed to unseat Apple as the industry leader in the all-important music, smartphone, and tablet markets. Microsoft is desperately seeking to diversify its assets, given that PCs may soon become obsolete, due to the explosion of mobile computing. Google is its primary competitor in the search engine market.

Combatting the Dominance of Google

UK Search Engine

Google has entered the news in the last few days as it relates to anti-trust allegations. This very much mirrors similar attention that Microsoft received some years ago for much the same reason. In both cases, there was (or is) a major force in the industry in question and it is to the point where a near-monopoly exists. Google is certainly not alone in the search engine market as there are other ones like Bing and Yahoo.

Microsoft Bong and Google Using TheFour Ps of Marketing

Comparing Microsoft Bing and Google Using the Marketing Mix

Google's dominance of the search market globally continues despite the aggressive launch in 2009 of Bing, a new search engine, by Microsoft. To date, Google is still the most preferred search engine globally, with a commanding market share lead (Grensing-Pophal, 2012). Both of these search engines are financed through advertising revenues, with Google's AdWords being the most profitable online advertising platform globally today as well. Microsoft's Bing advertising strategies have gravitated towards paid search and more traditional forms of online business models (Grensing-Pophal, 2012). These have been somewhat successful in raising the profitability of the Online Division of Microsoft, known as one of the least profitable in the entire company (Vance, 2012). Google on the other hand continues to be one of the most consistently profitable businesses in the high technology sector,…… [Read More]

Google is one of the most known search engines available today. Started up in 1999, Google slowly began to gain a high ranking among search engines and ad revenue vehicles. Through an analysis of Porter's five forces, one can begin to understand how Google became one of the most used search engines used today.

The first force to be analyzed is the threat of new entrants to the market. Currently, the threat of new entrants is low as people have already grown comfortable with the search engine choices presently available. Furthermore, Google has demonstrated that it has a strong foothold on the search engine market. In November 2009, Google "enjoyed a 65.6% share of all U.S. searches…[and outside] the United States Google's lead was even larger, exceeding a 90% share of search queries in numerous countries."

The second force that needs to be analyzed is the threat of substitutes. Presently,…… [Read More]

In conclusion, the iterative nature of Bing is very effective in targeting content of interest and the use of specific operands or qualifiers including .PDF work well.

In a comparison of the Yahoo! search engine (http://www.yahoo.com) and the Google search engine (http://www.google.com),there are some very interesting similarities, but also some blatant differences. Yahoo! provides the options of searching on the web, in images, in yellow pages, and in products. Google provides the options of searching the web, images, groups, directory, and news. Both engines provide suggestions if there is a chance one misspelled a common word in your search terms. When performing any kind of general search on Yahoo!, for example searching for the terms TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION, the first several "search results" are actually paid ads in disguise. On Google, however, the ads are clearly marked as such, and all results are not paid. Beyond the paid ads, the different engines provided different but equally relevant results. Other differences are that Yahoo! offers a separate link to open the result in a new window, which is…… [Read More]

This is because it is quite difficult to gain a customer but extremely easy to lose one, and when the marketer has made a customer, then he must ensure that he maintains a minimum of contact with him so that he may be able to pitch his sales again to an individual who is already a customer better than he would be able to a new customer. The third tip is that the marketer must avoid making exaggerated claims about his product or service even if it may actually be true. This is because the customer is always wary of false claims and would automatically tend to avoid such websites. Another tip is that if a discount and a bonus were to be combined within one particular offer, then it would be so very irresistible that the customer would have no option than to purchase it.

Google and the Mind: Notes

There are about fifty billion webpages indexed by Google. One may, in a number of ways, perceive the above fifty billion pages as signifying, from some standpoint, the joint experiences felt by a substantial share of humans -- a kind of "universal memory".

The algorithm of page rank is extremely effective as it classifies pages to make natural sense to the people who search for anything on search engines. PageRank by Google seems to be miraculously capable of prioritizing individual pages such that a person will be capable of easily relating to them. PageRank has been transforming the way web users browse the Internet. With regard to researching the universal shared memory signified by the Internet, the algorithm of PageRank appears to work effectively for users, nearly as proficiently as if they were seeking coveted information stored within their own brain (20).

SOPA and Pipa Legislation

SOPA & PIPA Legislation

File sharing involving copyright infringement began as peer-to-peer operations, sometimes with the involvement of a central server that acts as a search engine. Recently there has been a rise in file sharing where the infringing content is actually stored on the central server, such as the now-defunct megaupload.com. Consequently, there is a conflict between the rights of content owners and the rights of ordinary users of the internet. The conflict here is that efforts to eliminate sites that enable online infringing may also eliminate legitimate internet activity. In the fall of 2011 the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act) proposals were introduced into the U.S. Congress. Almost certainly, the SOPA and PIPA proposals to go after file sharers go too far in the other direction in violating the free speech rights of individual users and handing the web even more over…… [Read More]

The website does not present an effective message to potential advertisers capable of convincing them to advertise on the website. The middle section of the homepage is intended to appeal to prospective vendors but it is written from the point-of-view of the needs of Vendorland.ca instead of from the perspective of the needs of the prospective vendors. By contrast, the yellowpages.ca website immediately provides a prominent search engine feature that beckons consumers to enter terms of interest.

Meanwhile, the Vendorland.ca homepage does not even provide a basic search box. It requires web users to click links to search for a web search feature. The obvious consumer-oriented ease-of-use layout of yellowpages.ca serves a dual role: it encourages first-time users to try the search engine and it suggests to potential vendors that consumers will use the site to find them.

This double-edged sword of new technology is being increasingly being relied on for capturing knowledge in the organization, serving as a vital catalyst for higher levels of collaboration Condon, 55):

According to Jorge Lopez, industry research chief at Gartner, the focus of it has been to cut costs by automating tasks that can be broken down into discrete processes. But it has achieved all it can in that respect and any further improvements would be marginal. The next frontier for it is the non-routine work that lends itself less readily to automation - and here the talk is of 'augmentation': helping people come to decisions more quickly, and helping support any consequent action.

With knowledge workers, such as managers, who deal with non-routine kinds of work, the idea of productivity is different. As (management guru Peter) Drucker pointed out, you don't pay them by the hour but by results,' says…… [Read More]

Pricing is the largest competitive advantage Dell has, specifically their ability to quickly respond to changes in prices from their own suppliers. Dell's website is tailored to allow for rapid price changes, and together with the custom configuration capability, pricing is the reason why Dell excels against so many competitors.

Columbus (2003) discusses the role of special pricing requests being critical for the long-term profitability of companies that have high inventory turn items and rapid product lifecycles, as Dell does.

In terms of distribution or place, the ability of Dell to create customized PCs through any one of several manufacturing plants is really the 4th P. Of the marketing mix. The Dell manufacturing system acts as a foundation to support the execution of all 4 Ps in marketing, and certainly "place" or distribution is more dictated by the ability of the company to automatically route and fulfill orders from the…… [Read More]

Evidence-Based Group Work How Can I Increase

Words: 1002 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 75295210

Evidence-Based Group Work

How can I increase attendance of a support group for at-risk teenage Latino students in a school setting?

Search for Evidence

In order to search for evidence in increasing attendance of a support group for Latino students in a school setting, I went to PubMed as my initial search engine. I chose PubMed because I have found it to be a great starting place for health-care research. Not only does it provide details about relevant articles, but it provides abstracts for most of those articles, as well as the full-text of many articles. Initially my question was how to increase the attendance of a support group for minority students in a school setting, but the amount of available information was overwhelming, so I then narrowed my search to the Latino community. The search terms that I used were "support group," "group therapy," "school setting," "teenage," "Latino," "Spanish,"…… [Read More]

Evidence Admission and Suppression

Words: 713 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 96461856

Admissibility of Evidence at Trial

If the goal for a trial is the search for justice, why should there be rules that limit a juror's ability to render a verdict only to that information gathered in compliance with the Constitution and approved by the judge?

Part of the search for justice is making sure that the evidence admitted at trial satisfies the constitutional criteria distinguishing admissible evidence from inadmissible evidence. In large part, the rules of evidence in a criminal trial are expressly designed to protect the constitutional rights of persons suspected of criminal activity by the police. If there were no such rules, it would be difficult if not impossible to control the ways that police secured evidence on the street. In fact, prior to the modern era of American criminal justice, police routinely arrested suspects without probable cause, deprived them of counsel, food, water, and bathroom facilities, and…… [Read More]

Aristotle on the Web Aristotle

Words: 801 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 55515706

But the view of Aristotle is more critical, rather than seeing the philosopher as a great prognosticator. Aristotle is presented as a great patriarch, occasionally overly venerated, as quite often his word was assumed to be 'gospel' during the heyday of the Catholic Church and scholasticism, although the website makes clear he should still be regarded as a worthy creator of the inklings of the modern scientific method.

The agenda of Philosophy Pages might also seem to be obvious, given the site's title, and its copious and helpful links to specific areas of Aristotelian philosophy, including Aristotle's doctrine of the universals, friendship, and other bibliographic sources. Although all of the data presented, however, is relatively accurate, it is extremely superficial and does not contain the copious amount of direct quotes from the philosopher's works -- far less even then the Encyclopedia page devoted to Aristotle. Also, the site is filled…… [Read More]

E-Business Model

ecommerce business models

With the advent of Internet, we have seen a lot of changes in the communications arena and business practices are no exception. E-commerce has taken business from closed doors of offices and retail shops to the information superhighway, where literally millions of people trade daily. The online business model can be viewed in terms of B2B, B2C and C2C models (business to business, business to consumer and consumer to consumer respectively).

To get an insight into the working of these models, the ways they are similar and different from each other, we take a look at one site representing each of the above-discussed models. For B2B, we have Intel's site - the leading microprocessor manufacturing company. Eddie Bauer, an online shopping store having everyday-use items stands for B2C and lastly, eBay for C2C model as on this site, an ordinary surfer can assume role of both -…… [Read More]

' hile in theory this may seem defensible, in practice it is more questionable to carefully watch every second an employee spends online -- if the employee does a bit of Christmas-shopping online, but is otherwise productive, should this be used against the employee? And cannot such objectionable sites be blocked, without violating employee privacy? hat if the employee uses his or her work email to send one or two brief personal emails -- the time 'theft' is quite minimal, yet so easy to do companies are falling prey to this temptation. And the issues of time theft blurs as employees do more work on their home computers for work -- work is taking over the home and ' private time' already. Yet this also means employees can store secret work-related items that they could store and share, if left unmonitored. Finally, RFID (radio-frequency IDs) in the workplace, which track…… [Read More]

This limits the ability for businesses to make use of telemarketing as an advertising technique. hile most people feel that telemarketers are an annoyance, above all else, telemarketers have also been accused of deceptive practices. This act will make it easier to regulate businesses that use telemarketers. Already, in November 2007, "the FTC announced six settlements and a federal court action against companies that violated the Do Not Call provisions of the Telemarketing Sales Rule, resulting in millions of dollars in civil penalties for rule violations" (FTC Chairman and Commissioners Testify Before Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation on proposed 'Federal Trade Commission Reauthorization Act of 2008'," FTC: Office of Public Affairs, 2008).
