25 Ways to Beat Procrastination * Face up to the results of procrastination. What will happen if you procrastinate? How will you feel if you fail the test? How miserable will you be over the weekend if you have to write a last- minute paper while your family and friends get to go see a movie? * Concentrate on the rewards of managing yourself and your time. Think about the rewards that you will get when you finish a difficult task. You can go to a movie or relax or spend time with your children. You can get a good grade. Think about how good you will feel when the weekend comes and your paper is finished and you don’t have to spend all your time working on a project. Focus on how good you will feel when you did well on a project. While you are working, stop periodically and focus on the rewards. * Break up big tasks into small ones. If you have to write a paper, can you work on one segment tonight and another one tomorrow? If you start early and finish a small segment each day, a big paper is just a series of small tasks. * Give yourself a time limit to accomplish a task. Work will expand to take up as much time as we allow it to. Push yourself to work faster and more efficiently. * Set a regular time for study, and do not vary from it. Determine your personal “ best time” and “ best place.” * Start studying with positive, realistic thoughts. Push negative thoughts out of your mind. Tell yourself that you are growing and becoming more competent. Remember, “ You can do this.” * Establish good study habits. * Set reasonable, concrete goals that you can reach in about 20 to 25 minutes. Then, set others for the next block of time. * Face fear; look it right in the face. Make up your mind you are going to overcome fear by studying and preparing every day. * Get help from your instructor. Show the instructor what you have done and…...

...Technology in Banking Insight and Foresight Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (Established by Reserve Bank of India) Foreword The Indian banking industry, almost in keeping with the deep entrepreneurial approach of the country s business, has come a long way. This report is an effort to capture some exemplary initiatives and developments so far as well as discuss the emerging trends. The insights and understanding of the technology trends and ground-level work being done by the banks has been culled from the nominations received from banks for the IDRBT Banking Technology Excellence Awards 2010. The transformation of Indian banks in the last decade has been phenomenal from local branch banking to global presence and anywhere-anytime banking. Most of the regular banking transactions can today be carried out from mobile phones. Sustained reforms and information technology (IT) have played a pivotal role since the initiation of the second phase of reforms post 1998. The benefits of technology such as scale, speed and low error rate are also reflecting in the performance, productivity and profitability of banks, which have improved tremendously in the past decade. Regulatory initiatives from the Central Bank have also played a large role in the banking sector. Robust technology-enabled organizations have now become the mainstay of the industry. Initiatives such as electronic clearing service (ECS), national electronic funds transfer (NEFT),......

25 Ways to Get the Most Out of Now

...EN110 Achieving Academic Excellence Assignment 02 EN110 Achieving Academic Excellence 25 Ways to Get the Most Out of Now There are several time management techniques to help a person get the most out of now. The following ten methods are what I feel to be most beneficial: 1. Be aware of your best time of day. Being aware of the best time of day to study is especially beneficial to me because throughout the years, I have learned that no matter how hard I try I cannot study late at night – least wise not effectively. I know I am simply a morning student. Knowing when you are most productive helps to schedule your day and also reduces the guilty feeling of “slow” periods because you have planned for them. 2. Learn to say no. In the beginning of my studies, learning to say no was an easy task for me. I was excited about class and I wanted to succeed. As school continued, I found it harder to say no because I was nervous friends and family would begin to think I was “giving them excuses.” I learned an effective way to communicate my needs with them, and soon “saying no” was a perfectly acceptable and efficient response for both parties. 3. Avoid noise distractions. Avoiding noise distractions is an area that requires the most focus for me. I cannot study or work when I have background noise. Knowing this helps to plan my activities throughout the day so I can be the most productive and not back track my efforts constantly. 4. Ask: Would I pay myself for...

In it, streaks of red crash into paths of orange and yellow, all combining to form a vague likeness of a GIRL’S EYE. Each stroke is calm and contained, but as a whole, the eye is passionate and wild. FADE TO BLACK. INT. SARAH’S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT SARAH HENSON, 18, tosses aside some brown wrapping paper and a red ribbon as she sits cross-legged on the white carpeted floor, leaning back against the bottom portion of a brown leather sofa. She holds the PAINTING of the eye. SARAH Oh my god. Chris- It’s wonderful! Her brown bangs fall across her face, hiding her left eye. She sweeps them away to continue inspecting the painting. CHRIS TAYLOR, 18, is lying on the floor across from her, stretched out on his side. His brown hoody has specks and smears of dried paint on it. So do his black jeans. One knee is shredded, and the other is just beginning to follow suit. CHRIS Well, it is yours. The eye, I mean. Sarah smiles to herself as she gazes at the painting. SARAH It’s a bit weird though isn’t it? I mean, my eye hanging on a wall somewhere, staring at me forev- CHRIS I never said you had to keep it. Sarah looks up at him, her mouth cracked in surprise, and her slim eyebrows raised. He avoids her glance by plucking at the stray white carpet fibers and then smoothing them back down. SARAH What?

...Feminism can be roughly defined as a movement that seeks to enhance the quality of women’s lives by impacting the norms and moves of a society based on male dominance and subsequent female subordination. The means of change in the work place, politically, and domestically. Women have come a long way since the 19th century. Women have been trying to prove to the male dominant world that they are equal. They can perform and complete any tasks equal, or in some cases better than man. Feminism has changed the definition of men in many ways. Women in the work place have transposed dramatically since the 19th and mid 20th century. Even if women had any education in the 19th century they were not allow to manifest any of it. It just was not proper for women to give any signs of intelligence and a brain of their own. They were to prepare themselves to become wives and mothers, which were the extent of their entire lives. In the early and mid 20th century some women were starting to be brave and take a stand for themselves. The beginnings of feminism were starting to take its massive role in society. More and more women were getting educated and looking for employment opportunities that had power. Men no longer can be in control of everything. Men in the work place started to feel impotent. But women fed off each other and gave each other strength. They were not looking for just the secretarial jobs; they were taking some men’s jobs and being good at it. They were becoming police......

...if he doesn’t matter that he is just another dollar sign. The doctor makes it his point at all time to make it known that he is a doctor in the hospital and should be treated with much more respect than with the mediocrity of a patient. He slowly comes to terms with the fact that he may have been mistreating people for a long period of time. As the movie begins rock 'n' roll music is playing in his operating room while literally holding patients hearts in his hands. He leads life being the father of two sons and a husband to a loving wife. Dr. Hurt expresses his feeling openly when he tells his interns that personal feelings have nothing to do with science of medicine. When the tables turn he discovers that he really doesn’t feel that way. In the beginning his ailments starts as a small, persistent cough. On one occasion he begins coughing and in the end coughs up blood. He goes to an otolaryngologist and discovers that there is a tumor and it doesn't work, he may need surgery. In that case, it's impossible to predict how his vocal cords will respond. He could lose the power of speech. This is devastating news, the doctor is left in a state of shock and disbelief as his treatment progresses, and he doesn't like how his own hospital treats him, as he wastes time in waiting rooms, tangles with the bureaucracy and is repelled by his doctor’s frigid bedside manner. For the first time, he grows close to a patient who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, on a daily......

...PsychOLOGY 1 | Before My Death | Summer 2014 | | | 7/14/2014 | “Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.”  ― Ernest Hemingway | Since I am still a high school student, I have not yet achieved much. I still have many dreams and hopes that I am desperate to achieve. Some may be foolish while others are practical, either way I hope I have a chance to make my goals happen. According to the Death Clock I have until October 8, 2077 which will give me 63 years to try to live my life to the fullest. The first thing I want to accomplish is finish all of my schooling. That includes finishing high school, earning my under-graduate degree, completing an MD program, and finish the postgraduate residency program so I can become a Forensic Pathologist. Ever since I was a young girl, I have dreamed of working in the Forensics field. In that last two years I have decided I wanted to specifically become a Medical Examiner after giving it much thought. Even though most Forensic Pathologists have very unstable work hours, they have the highest pay and many cases provide a problem-solving challenge. My second goal would be to continually live a happy life. Though most people would think a happy life is something anyone easily can have, I believe it is not something one should take for granted. In the last couple of years of going to an all-girl high school, I have seen......

...3 Contour integrals and Cauchy’s Theorem 3.1 Line integrals of complex functions Our goal here will be to discuss integration of complex functions f (z) = u + iv, with particular regard to analytic functions. Of course, one way to think of integration is as antidifferentiation. But there is also the definite integral. For a function f (x) of a real variable x, we have the integral b f (x) dx. In case f (x) = u(x) + iv(x) is a complex-valued function of a a real variable x, the definite integral is the complex number obtained by b integrating the real and imaginary parts of f (x) separately, i.e. b b u(x) dx + i a f (x) dx = a v(x) dx. For vector fields F = (P, Q) in the plane we have a the line integral P dx+Q dy, where C is an oriented curve. In case P and C Q are complex-valued, in which case we call P dx + Q dy a complex 1-form, we again define the line integral by integrating the real and imaginary parts separately. Next we recall the basics of line integrals in the plane: 1. The vector field F = (P, Q) is a gradient vector field g, which we can write in terms of 1-forms as P dx + Q dy = dg, if and only if C P dx+Q dy only depends on the endpoints of C, equivalently if and only if C P dx+Q dy = 0 for every closed curve C. If P dx+Q dy = dg, and C has endpoints z0 and z1 , then we have the formula dg = g(z1 ) − g(z0 ). P dx + Q dy = C C 2. If D is a plane region with oriented boundary ∂D = C, then P dx + Q dy = C D ∂Q ∂P − ∂x ∂y dxdy. 3. If D is a simply......

Therac 25

...Part 1: Defend the AECL In the late 1900s, cancer treatment was reaching a whole new level with the Therac versions of radiation machines. These machines were able to target fast growing cancer cells and destroy them with x-rays and electromagnetic rays. Each new version of the machine contained major improvements for cancer treatments. However, with the release of the Therac-25 version came issues of over-exposure to radiation and deaths for already suffering cancer patients. There has since been a big debate about who is liable in the situation – The AECL, the hospitals, the operators, or the FDA. There are many reasons that the AECL, the creators of the Therac-25 machine, should not be liable for the injuries and deaths caused by the machines. First of all, consider the purpose of a person who works for a company or corporation. That is, to create and sell products that help the company make as much money as possible. The success or failure of that company depends on whether or not the products sell. Therefore, if a company produces a bad, unethical, or unsafe product, it is the job of the consumers to do their research and not purchase the product. It’s simple: if consumers don’t buy bad products, the company won’t be successful and continue selling them. The AECL did their job, which was to create a product that customers wanted to buy. The second reason the AECL should not be liable is because they met all of the requirements of the third party company whose job......

Alive at 25

...Alive at 25 is a defensive driving course that teaches its students the importance of safe driving. In today’s world, car collisions are one of the major causes on deaths in the United States. Thousands of people die every year from car collisions due to driver error, some of which are: drinking and driving, texting while driving, and not wearing a safety belt. The Alive at 25 course is meant to teach young adults the hazards that come with unsafe driving, in the hopes that they will become better and safer drivers so that they will not end up in the emergency room or the morgue due to a car collision. In this essay, I will cover some of the main topics we discussed in the Alive at 25 course and I will outline what I have learned from this material. One of the first topics we discussed in class was some of the statistics that have been developed in regards to car collisions within specific age groups. The Alive at 25 course focuses on the 15-24 year old age group, this group is known as Group 1, as people in this age group are the youngest amongst drivers in the United States. Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death of 15-24 year olds with almost 11,000 people dying every year. We also discussed some percentages of drivers who are considered Group 1 (age 15-25), drivers in this age group consist of: 14% of licensed drivers, 27% of all people involved in collisions, 21% of people who die from collisions with other vehicles, 34% of people who die from......

X.25 Protocol

...X.25 Protocol A history of the X.25 Protocol Tim Elliott Morrisville State College Abstract X.25 is a Wide Area Network standard suite of protocols for packet switching developed by the International Telecommunication Union-Telecommunication Standardization Sector in the early 1970’s. It was designed to support traditional data networking over telephone wiring. Though widely used in the 1980’s, it has been largely replaced by newer IP standards such as frame relay. The purpose of this protocol is to effectively transmit data between different types of systems across a public data network. The main communication groups that ran this form of packet-switched network were the telephone companies but as technology has moved away from these slower forms, the public sector has seen this all but disappear in America. It should be said though that many places around the world still use this because of the cost to upgrade to newer hardware, but that market segment is shrinking quickly. A history of the X.25 Protocol In this paper, I will be talking about many of the technical aspects, the history and some of the situations where the X.25 protocol is still in use today. In Section 1, I will talk about where it fits on the OSI layered architecture and discuss the Network and Data Link layer. In Section 2, I will describe some of the common equipment that this protocol used with the Physical Layer of the OSI model. In Section 3 I will discuss some of the problems that have......

Chapter 25

...NOTE: Please pay particular attention to the way that answers are stated, because these are the kinds of statements that will be looked for in the quizzes and final exam. In general, all answers need to be supported with appropriate reasoning. CHAPTER 25 Chapter 25 Question 8 8. A country (or individual) has an absolute advantage when it can produce more of a good or service than another. A comparative advantage exists when one country’s opportunity cost to produce a good is lower than another country’s. Michelle Wie would hire you to do laundry since your opportunity cost of doing laundry is less than hers. In the 2 or 3 hours that it takes to do her laundry, she could earn far more than what she would have to pay you. Chapter 25 Question 12 12a. India in tea, Italy in olives. India’s opportunity cost for 1 million tons of olives is 15 million tons of tea. Italy’s opportunity cost for olives is 1.7 mil-lion tons of tea for 1 million tons of olives. Italy’s opportunity cost for olives is lower, so it will specialize in olive production. 13b. See the table below. Yes, they both are better off, as shown in the last column. Chapter 25 Question 13 13a. At $10, unit total sales will be 16 million, with imports equal to the differ-ence between 16 million total sales and domestic supply of 4 million units, so imports will be 12 million and as a percent of U.S. sales are equal to 12/16 75%. 13b. 4 million; at a price of $15 ($10 $5 tariff), total sales are 12 million and...
