Market/Commercial insight
The reported market decline in the Automotive Industry for passenger cars has declined by 37% in FY2011. Financial modelling of passenger vehicle purchase history by Toyota identified that purchases of the Prius model is are correlated with fuel prices, which on an aggregate have been declining in the United States. This has been a problem for Toyota in launching the new model - (see Chart below). Consumer insight
Toyota’s Prius is an economic car appealing primarily to echo-conscientious consumers. Their insight came…...

Bioethical Principles

...the following example. Suppose your Uncle Jed is in a terrible car accident that results in him being in a coma from which he may or may not wake. Imagine that he remains in this state for roughly two years and then awakens. He seems to be the same Uncle Jed that you knew before he went into the coma, even though he's lost some weight, hair, and memories. Was he a person during the coma? Could the physicians have killed Uncle Jed's body during that time because it was not functioning as a person? If one holds to the personhood criteria we reviewed above, it is difficult to see why it would be wrong to kill Uncle Jed while he is in the coma. Yet, it would be morally wrong to kill Uncle Jed while in this state. Suppose you were to conclude that Uncle Jed's life is valuable while in the coma because at one time prior to the coma he functioned as a person and probably will do so in the future after coming out of the coma. But this would be a mistake. For we can change the story a bit and say that when Uncle Jed awakens from the coma he loses virtually all his memories and knowledge including his ability to speak a language, engage in rational thought, and have a self-concept. It turns out that while in the coma he was in the exact same position as the standard fetus, for he had the same capacities as the fetus. He would still literally be the same person he was before the coma but he would be more like he was before he had a "past." He would have the natural inherent capacity......

Seeing Myself

...Seeing Myself I’d never believed in fear until the day I lay helpless in a coma. I remember we were driving home from dinner when a drunk driver slammed into our car. I blacked out after that. When I awoke I heard beeping noises but I couldn’t open my eyes or control anything at all. I heard the doctors say “she is in a coma only time will tell.” I realized I was awake inside a helpless body. I tried to move but I couldn’t. I wanted to know where my parents where. I wanted to know what was going on and if they were ok! I heard my auntie. She said “they are gone… my sister and my brother in law are gone” My parents were gone. I heard mulitiple people come in which sounded like my auntie along with the rest of my family members. I desperately wanted to scream out and wake from the pain I was in. All of a sudden I could see again but instead of looking up at the ceiling I was looking down at myself. I didn’t quite understand. I started to move around. I wanted to yell out to my family so they could know I could hear them. My grandma sobbed “please ash come through we all love you so much.” The nurse walks in and tell everyone that visiting hours are over but they may wait in the waiting room if they would like. I decided to follow them out into the waiting room. Everyone was so upset, the tears in eveyones eyes I couldn’t stand to watch it anymore. I decided to to go back to the room where my body lay in the bed. I looked at my helpless body with bandage on my head. I......

Shared Memory Architecture

...these systems are called SMP (symmetric multiprocessor). (UMA Architecture) • NUMA :- In Non uniform Memory Access each processor has part of the shared memory attached. However, the access time depends on the distance to the processor. In NUMA, memory access time depends on the memory location relative to a processor. A processor can access its own local memory faster than non local memory. (NUMA Architecture) • COMA: - Cache Only Memory Architecture is similar to the NUMA. In this each processor has part of the shared memory in the COMA. In this case the shared memory consists of cache memory. A COMA system requires that data be migrated to the processor requesting it. (COMA Architecture)  Advantages: • Programming for IPC become simple that we simply read and write to an address pointer available in our process address space. • We need not use system calls like read and write.  Architectural Support for Shared Memory: BIBLIOGRAPHY Books:  Advance Computer Architecture  William Stallings  B RAM Websites: http://siber.cankaya.edu.tr/ParallelComputing/ceng471/node18.html...

Psycology

...to be herself ever again she is accentually dead, as the Melissa you know died the minute her Cortex was damaged and her neurons stopped producing electrical currents. This patient is only breathing and her heart beating because the reptilian part of the base of the brain is still sending out life supporting neurons to keep these basic functions going. This is not to be mistaken for a coma,if she was lucky enough to endure this kind of brain damage, she may be able to stay alive and regain some of her traits that make up who Melissa is. There are no guarantees that if Melissa did fall into a coma that she will wake up and be functioning again. A coma is a prolonged state of unconsciousness. During a coma, a person is unresponsive to his or her environment. The person is alive and looks like he or she is sleeping. However, unlike in a deep sleep, the person cannot be awakened by any stimulation, including pain.The prognosis for a coma varies with each situation. The chances of a person's recovery depend on the cause of the coma, whether the problem can be corrected, and the duration of the coma. If the problem can be resolved, the person can often return to his or her original level of functioning. Sometimes, though, if the brain damage is severe, a person may be permanently disabled or never regain consciousness....

How Fragile Life Is

...severe head trauma. This accident has put Michael in a coma since Dec 29th 2013. Officials say that if it were not for his helmet, that Michael would have died from the injuries resulting from the impact of the crash. Schumacher was operated on for a brain hemorrhage and has since then been placed in an induced coma. The 44 year old currently remains in intensive care at the University of Grenoble. His wife, Corinna, and their two children (Gina-Marie, 17, and Mick, 14) are constantly at his bedside. Following a brilliant career, never encountering any serious accidents on the track (check this info) and balancing the excitement of his life in racing with the love of his family (whenever he was not racing), it is tragic to think that a random event such as this could change an amazing mans life so dramatically and possibly putting an early end to it. Michael has been in a coma for 85 days and has lost 25% of his body weight, suffered severe atrophy (of the diaphragm) as well as major muscle depletion. He is relying on a machine to do the breathing for him, but largely remains in a vegetative state. The former chief doctor of Formula 1, cautions fans that they should prepare themselves for really bad news regarding Michaels condition. He then went on to say that as time goes on, staying in the induced coma decreases his chances of ever returning to a significant life state. If he were to ever come out the coma, it would take years of intensive therapy to......

After the Storm

... One of the first “medical problems” that comes up is organ donation. Sharon must decide whether or not to sign off, to donate her mother and her son’s organs. While this is going on, they’re trying to find a match for Bobby’s blood type so they can have more blood available. Bobby is AB negative. Bobby went into a coma right after surgery. A coma is a state of prolonged unconsciousness. The doctors believe Bobby entered this coma because of the trauma his brain was put through in the crash. Bobby had to have his spleen removed in surgery. His spleen had developed a hematoma that ruptured. A hematoma is a circumscribed collection of blood caused by a break in a blood vessel. The doctors had to constantly monitor his heart rate, blood pressure, and cerebral pressure. Being that he was in a coma, Bobby had a catheter placed in him. This tube helped drain fluids, such as urine, from his bladder. They monitored his cerebral pressure because the swelling of the brain can lead to permanent brain damage. The doctors didn’t know the full extent of the damage caused by this crash; they weren’t sure how much trauma had already occurred. In time, Bobby came out of his coma. At first, Bobby would tire easily and couldn’t keep up with the other kids, through therapy he was able to build back his strength and fully recover. The process was long, but eventually he was able to go back to living a normal life. They were all able to overcome this tragedy in just a year or two. The legal......

Goodbye Lenin

...“Goodbye Lenin” The movie that was planned on being shown, “The Miracle of Bern”, was replaced with “Goodbye Lenin” because the DVD was region locked for Europe and could not be played on an American DVD player. “Goodbye Lenin” was a story of a boy named Alex who saw his mother fall into a coma, and when she wakes, he tries to keep her from knowing all that has happened in the eight long months since she was last conscious. “Goodbye Lenin” starts out in 1989 in East Germany. The Kerner family is made up of Alex (main character), his mother Christina, and his sister Ariana. Alex’s mother is a huge believer in the DDR and when she sees Alex fighting against German police control, she faints in the street as he is taken away. He finds her in a hospital in a coma. Skip forward eight months and the Berlin wall has been taken down and the DDR no longer exists. Christina wakes up from her coma, but Alex is warned by the doctor that any sort of shock could scare her enough to kill her. So for the rest of the movie, Alex does everything he can to keep his proud, DDR supporting mother from knowing what has happened the past eight months and what the current state of West and East Germany is. It’s a bit difficult to write about what I learned from the film, solely because I just got back from a trip to Berlin a few weeks ago and I learned a lot about the history of West and East Germany. This film was more of an entertainment film, rather than an educational one. I......

Comets

...heats up and begins to outgas, displaying a visible atmosphere or coma, and sometimes also a tail. These phenomena are due to the effects of solar radiation and the solar wind upon the nucleus of the comet. Comet nuclei range from a few hundred metres to tens of kilometres across and are composed of loose collections of ice, dust, and small rocky particles. The coma and tail are much larger and, if sufficiently bright, may be seen from the Earth without the aid of a telescope. Comets have been observed and recorded since ancient times by many different cultures. Comets have a wide range of orbital periods, ranging from several years to several millions of years. Short-period comets originate in the Kuiper belt or its associated scattered disc, which lie beyond the orbit of Neptune. Longer-period comets are thought to originate in the Oort cloud, a spherical cloud of icy bodies extending from outside the Kuiper Belt to halfway to the next nearest star. Long-period comets are directed towards the Sun from the Oort cloud by gravitational perturbations caused by passing stars and the galactic tide. Hyperbolic comets may pass once through the inner Solar System before being flung out to interstellar space along hyperbolic trajectories. Comets are distinguished from asteroids by the presence of an extended, gravitationally unbound atmosphere surrounding their central nucleus. This atmosphere has parts termed the coma (the central atmosphere immediately surrounding the nucleus)......

Comet C/2006 M4 Swan

...Because Comet C/2006 M4 SWAN is a one time spectacle, there is an abundant amount of information in regards to where and when to find it in the night sky and a very little amount of popularized information about it's mass and size and anatomy. As an attractive spectacle people have generally recorded that "The blue color of the ion tail is dominated by recombining carbon monoxide atoms. The color of the coma surrounding the head of the comet is tinged green by slight amounts of the molecule cyanogen."7. These observations can help us describe and understand the composition of Dust and the Gas surrounding the Comet. In all other respects to help us understand the inner workings and anatomy we can assume that generally, Comet C/2006 M4 SWAN is allot like what we would 6 http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/H/hyperbola.html Visited December 5, 2006 7Robert Nemiroff (MTU) & Jerry Bonnell (USRA) http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap061106.html Visited December 5, 2006 Page 4 expect from a typical comet. A typical comet can be described in five distinct sections; the nucleus, coma, hydrogen envelope, dust tail, and ion tail. The Nucleus is typically between one to ten kilometers wide. It is almost all of the mass of the comet. The Nucleus is popularly thought of as a "dirty snowball" because scientists think it is a fluffy mix of ices and fine dust with a coating of black organic substances.8 In the case of Comet C/2006 M4 SWAN some of the ice is carbon monoxide, and some......

...being similar to the lightest stages of anesthesia. General anesthesia essentially is a “reversible coma.”(2) There are similarities between an anesthetized brain and a conscious brain though. The anesthetized brain uses some of same neural machinery as sleep. (1) Sights and sounds vanish as the thalamus and cortex quiets as the body ensues sleep. (1) In contrast, a person sedated by general anesthesia can’t be awoken like a person sleeping normally. As the anesthetic drugs begin to take effect, patients are senseless, and placed in a world of oblivion. The constant, slow rolling EEG patterns shown when patients are induced under general anesthesia more closely resemble those seen in coma. (1) On December 30th, the New England Journal of Medicine had an article highlighting the surprising similar brain effects found in general anesthesia and comas.(1) Scientists Nicholas Schiff and Ralph Lydic discovered that as drugs are administered to patients undergoing general anesthesia begin to take effect, activity between neurons may actually increase for a short period. The more medication given, the sooner patients fall into sedation. (1) These research findings show that an anesthetized brain is essentially a drug induced coma. The most vital regions of the brain that are responsible for consciousness, memory and alertness are neutralized with both an anesthetized brain and a brain coma induced. The thalamus and the cerebral cortex are the most significant regions......

Film Critique Final Paper

...and without all the blood and gore that most horror films rely on these days. INSIDIOUS is a film about a family who moves into a new home and begins to experience some very strange phenomenon, such as items being moved from one place to another without any explanation. The setting is an old creepy house; with an attic full of items from the past, and which seems to draw people in; first the mother, then the son. The son Dalton ends up falling off of a ladder while playing in the attic. He seems to receive only a minor bump from the fall, but during the night while asleep in his bed, he mysteriously drifts off into a coma and is unresponsive when his parent try to wake him for school. He is then rushed to the hospital emergency room where his condition baffles doctors. They cannot understand why there is no brain damage which is usually accompanied with a coma, but they have no idea what else to call it. He is ultimately sent home to be cared for by his mother with the help of a part-time nurse. It is during this time that the paranormal activity really kicks off in the story. Most of the paranormal occurrences seem to take place during the day while the mother is home alone, leaving her to fend for herself. With some difficulty, she is finally able to convince her husband to move the family to another home. They are very surprised to find that they have not escaped the haunting at all, for it has followed to the new house. They finally call in a psychic who deals with the......
