Washington State may be well known for its camping. Fishing and its skiing in the mountain ranges or for the wide open space of the flat land, but Seattle and some of its businesses comes to everyone’s mind first. The two biggest companies from an employment point of view is Boeing and Microsoft, mainly due to the fact that there products are used by the largest group of people in the world. Out of those two companies’ the most well-known name is Bill Gates. Bill Gates came from a modest home in Seattle and while growing up he could of did what a lot of kids were doing back in those days, which was to follow in his father’s footsteps and became a lawyer, instead he went off in a totally different direction. After only two years of college he dropped out and with a friend by the name of Paul Allen, came up with an idea that someday would change the world. Bill and Allen put their heads together and came up with an idea that would make a computer as easy to work with as a one year old can work a spoon. Sure Bill didn’t invent the computer but his programs, software and eventually his games would be seen in just about every business and house hold around the world. As time went by a lot of small or medium business became bigger because computer became small and easier to use and you could communicate with each other and that meant more computers were needed and that meant more programs. Suddenly people were working at home and when the adults weren’t on the computer the kids wanted to be, now you need games to play on your PC that’s short for personal computer. As Bill’s ideas grew so would his business and he needed to hire people to help with his business. He would need different kinds of people with the skills to make his ideas come to life, people to make the software, design layout, improve on games. Before you knew it he was the second largest…...

...Phase 3 Discussion Board EM208-1201A-08 Web Development I Colorado Technical University The software tool I chosen for this discussion is FrontPage2003. This website design tool not only allows you to design but also manage your files. You can add delete and rename as well as move files around. It allows you to fix problems with broken hyperlinks by running special reports. It will also allow you to publish a Web Site. Unlike other Website creation tools FrontPage stores all the files in hidden folders called metadata. This information allows FrontPage to function. They are hidden so they cannot be deleted or changed by accident. When Windows Explorer is set up to show hidden files you can see the metadata folders. There are two major types of folders one named _vti_cnf. This folder contains information about every file including the links to other files. The other file is _vti_pvt folder that contains all the configuration information for the web site its sub sites and the permissions information. One of the major advantages to using FrontPage is its ability to work in conjunction with other Microsoft products like EXCEL, POWERPOINT, and Word. FrontPage is great for web sites using a lot of text. It does a little bit of everything because it has embedded HTML editors. The major advantage of Microsoft FrontPage is found in the site management tools. You can do things like verify links and replace content easily, especially helpful when managing large websites.

...Unit 2 DB Subjective Probability “ A probability derived from an individual's personal judgment about whether a specific outcome is likely to occur. Subjective probabilities contain no formal calculations and only reflect the subject's opinions and past experience.” (investopedia.com, 2013) There are three elements of a probability which combine to equal a result. There is the experiment ,the sample space and the event (Editorial board, 2012). In this case the class is the experiment because the process of attempting it will result in a grade which could vary from an A to F. The different grades that can be achieved in the class are the sample space. The event or outcome is the grade that will be received at the end of the experiment. I would like to achieve an “A” in this class but due to my lack of experience in statistical analysis, my hesitation towards advanced mathematics, and the length of time it takes for me to complete my course work a C in this class may be my best result. I have a 1/9 chance or probability to receive an “A” in the data range presented to me which is (A,A-,B,B-,C,C-,D,D- AND F). By the grades that have been posted I would say that the other students have a much better chance of receiving a better grade than mine. I have personally use subjective probability in my security guard business in bidding on contracts based on the clients involved , the rates that I charge versus the rates other companies charge and the amount of work......

...Jim O’Brien Phase 3 Discussion Board – Project Risk Management MPM434-1204A-02 Contracts and Procurement Professor Christian Cheney No matter the size of a project, there are going to be risks associated with the project. Identifying risks early in a project can be critical to whether a project succeeds or fails. You can gain success for your project if you deal with project risks in a proactive manner. The result will be that you minimize the impact on the project and seize the opportunity to correct potential project road blocks (B. Jutte). All project plan need to include a risk management plan that is implemented early in the project and monitored throughout the life of the project (Risk Management Guide for DoD Acquisition). This discussion post asked us to identify four potential overall risks that could be experienced in the execution of our contract and procurement plan. The four major risks that could be experienced in the execution of my contract and procurement plan are: technical, schedule, production and cost. My contract and procurement plan is the development of a variable speed air refueling drogue to support tactical air refueling of rotary-wing and tilt-rotor aircraft by Air Combat Command and Air Force Special Operations Command C-130J tanker aircraft. Currently the tanker aircraft are configured with a either a low speed drogue for rotary-wing air refueling or a high speed drogue for tilt-rotor air refueling. Both of the commands......

...to grasp death in a way only literature can bring about. The author of Everyman uses Death in often unthought-of ways, i.e. as a carrier of his will and conviction. When Death is seen, Everyman realizes that he cannot run from him and that there is nothing he can do. The author uses death as God's convicting messenger. Death visits everyone and will spare no one. In Everyman: A Structural Analysis, one of the main focuses of the play is "the inevitability of death"(Van Laan). Death says that "everyman I arrest and no man spare, for it is God's commandment that all to me should be obedient." The author portrays a biblical truth because in Hebrews 9:27 it says, "Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment" (English Standard Version). Year after year the world death rate has held steady at one hundred percent but Everyman pleads and even tries to bribe Death. Death is relentless and even rebukes Everyman for trying to bribe his way out of death. Death will not pass over those God has called. Van Lann writes that even though "Death has left the stage, his continued authority asserts itself"(Everyman: A Structural Analysis) in the words of Everyman's friends. Death may be gone, but the characters in the play know that he will be back. In the play, Death "bloweth his blast." Final judgment awaits all human beings. Death is informed by God that the day is coming when all people will undertake a final journey and must give the Lord and account of their......

Phase 5 Discussion Board Em 208

...Phase 5 Discussion Board EM 208 Website development is not as easy as one might think. One of the most difficult decisions is selecting the layout and content on the site. If a business is supplying the content (i.e., descriptions of their products), the designer must find a layout that is beneficial to the company and user while giving a professional, appealing appearance to the site. Paul Boag posted in his blog that the business must prioritize, describe and measure their objectives for the user on the site (Boag, 2013). Additionally, their descriptions must be clear and concise while not targeting every demographic of users. Normally, the design or content on the site will not please every user that comes across it so it is important to not obsess over the demographic particulars (Boag, 2013). Dmitry Fadeyev stated that web design is not art, so the designer must have a clear direction which will communicate all of the goals and objectives effectively (Fadeyev, 2008). He stated that there are six steps for developing a successful website. First, establish the goals with the company. Ask yourself, what is the purpose of the site? Determine their desires for the site’s success and create a flow chart detailing the direction and navigation, known as the user’s needs. Next, identify the target audience. Develop the site to match the demographic that you are targeting on paper for the company to review. Utilize Photoshop in the creation of this process. ...

...Discussion Board Unit 2 Comp101/1401B Introduction to Computers A. Questions for weekly discussions and conversations. 1. Why are clip art libraries useful, not only in Word , but also in PowerPoint? Clip art libraries are useful to show pictures to your words. They are great for making your documents or slide shows more exciting. Clip art actually can draw attention to get the readers to focus on the project or document itself. 2. What are the copyright laws that must be followed when using clip art? The right of legal use of clip art depends on the intent of the copyright owner. Copyrighted clip art is off limits for commercial use unless you have a written agreement with the copyright holder. For instance, if you sold Nike products in your store, you would have the right to use their logo for advertising. If you didn’t sell Nike products then it would be illegal for you to use their logo without permission. 3. When might it not be appropriate to use clip art? Clip art probably wouldn’t be appropriate in legal and professional documents. It wouldn’t be professional if clip art was used. B. If you have not used clip art before, find 2 sites on the internet, and provide at least 1 example of when each site could be used in a practical way. Include the type of clip art found at the sites, including categories or special interest areas for the site. The first site that caught my eye was ClipartHeaven.com. The clip art ranges......

Phase 1 Discussion Board

...Applications Of Discrete Mathematics 7/8/2014 Phase 1 Discussion Board 2 To describe the notion of union and intersection we must first start with a set. A set can be numbers, objects, people etc. When you have sets of things, they can be combined to create a union or have elements in common. For example, if a company were looking for an employee within the database system they could search using last names. Say department A has Smith, Jones, Brown, Doe. Department B has Doe, White, Turner, Smith. The union of these sets would be written as follows: A U B = {Jones, Brown, Doe, Smith, White, Turner} The sets intersect with the two names in common, Doe and Smith. That would be written as: A n B= {Doe, Smith} The logical “and” and the logical “or” are important for database retrieval and flowcharts to help the system or reader to understand which way they need to go to seek out the information requested. Simple and compound statements help understand this notion. To help understand this let’s refer back to the original example. If the person searching the company database wanted to find a specific employee they would search for the last name and maybe first initial. This would take the search from a simple statement to a compound statement. The database would then need to search for the last name first and when it found the right name, Smith, it would then need to search for the first initial J....

...Discussion Board Forum 2 Case Study Business Ethics Roger Charnock BUSI 561 Abstract Most people are committed to doing the right thing; however that is not always the case in business. Since the days of a formal handshake to close a deal, the contract has evolved into a complex process. Many years ago society believed in the power of the spoken word; thus the statement my word is my bond, however since the downfall of mankind in the garden mistrust and out right egregious acts to undermine the boundaries of right and wrong has become more prevalent, especially in business. Christians conducting business in this present business model have to protect themselves from individuals who are self-seeking and unscrupulous. This paper will look at one example of contracts, while maintaining your spirituality. Contracts “In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19 Amplified Bible). Since the days of Adam, society has tried to find an angle, something that will give them an advantage. While competition is good especially in the world of contracting, fair and reasonable is the oil that lubes the contracting wheel. Still this sense of right or wrong does not prevent poor contracts or unscrupulous dealings. The struggle for supremacy had its impetus with Cain and Abel. Jealousy and material gain will create irrational thoughts and entice someone to do...

Acct311 Unit 2 Discussion Board

...The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation. The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit. Companies often try to manage earnings by recognizing revenue before it is actually earned......

It includes a job Title, reporting relationships, a summary of responsibilities, and a level of decision-making authorized and hiring requirements information.” Hawkes, C. L, &Weathinton, B. L. (2014).Competency-Based Versus Task-Based Job descriptions: Effects on applicant attract. Journal of behavior & applied management, 15(3), 190-211 Summary: In an Organization, Human Resources is responsible for making Job Descriptions and handing them over to management. Some of the Job Descriptions are too long, outdated meaning that the information is not current, it is boring and confusing. According to Miller, a best Job description is one that is simple and straight forward, easy to understand. It is the road map to a good performance which benefits an Organization or Company instead of a boring document that contains theoretical activities (Miller, pg. 394) A Job description written well can also be used or rather can serve as a reminder of what is expected of the employees and most of all can be used in the recruiting process to attract good candidates who can be motivated and be able to perform a great job. When writing a Job description, it should be in such a way......

Discussion Board Question 2

...According to your textbook, what are the dates for Jesus’ birth and death? Jesus’ birth is one of the most remarkable and glorious activities to ever take place on earth. There has always been speculation surrounding the exact birth date of our Lord and Savior. December 25th has been assigned and universally recognized as the birth of Christ. According to the text, although no definitive concensus was met to explicitly state when Jesus was born, it is a toss-up between Matthew’s account of Jesus birth and Luke’s account. Based on Matthew 2:1, “Now after Jesus was born in Bethleham of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem…” in juxtaposition Luke 1:5 has nothing to do with Jesus’ birth, but rather John the Baptist’s. [1] What are the critical datum we use to attain these dates? Moreover, the text settles on the notion that Jesus birth was possibly around 4 BC. More specifically the text states, “Both the Western Church (December 25) and the Eastern Church (January 6) celebrate the birth of Jesus in the winter. None of the NT data is inconsistent with a mid-winter date. If the traditional dates approximate the actual date of Jesus’ birth, Jesus was probably born in the winter of either 7-6 BC, 6-5 BC, or 5-4 BC, with a 5 BC date for Jesus’ birth being perhaps the most likely” (Kostenberger, The Cradle, The Cross, and the Crown, 139). Similar to the contestation over Jesus’ birth; his death is no option. According to the......

...taking bribes or misappropriating funds. Reading the newspaper reveals spouses killing one another over insurance money. 2. How should this verse be properly understood according to the author of The Most Misused Verses in the Bible? “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” 1 Timothy 6:10 New International version. This verse is misquoted as: Money is the root of all evil. First of all money is not the root of all evil, sin is the root of all evil. Money is not evil. It is not bad to have money or to be rich. What is wrong is when a person is not happy with what they have, but has to have more money. That becomes the love of money and with that people will do anything to get more money. Money becomes their master and in their pursuit they walk away from their Christian faith. Soon they are totally lost and hopeless. This is not the way that God wants you to live your life. This is what the verse means “money is the root of all kinds of evil.” 3. Based on Bargerhuff’s conclusion, how does this verse provide hope, encouragement, or support to the modern reader? “The author encourages us by “do yourself to present yourself to God as one approved a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth” 2 Timothy 2:15. There are several other verses that are misused. It is # 8 in the book, “The most misused verses in the Bible”.......

...to be pulled up. Unlike using a name as a primary key because there could be multiple people with the same name in the database with multiple different properties so this would not work as a primary key. Part II Consider the example of the states of the United States and the senators of the United States. If you consider the set of states as a domain and the set of senators as a range, you can establish a relation based on associations between the senators and the states. This relation would not be a function because each state corresponds to more than one senator. However, if you reverse the roles of the domain and range, then the relation is a function because each senator is associated with only one state. Make up your own example of 2 real-world sets – each with more than one element – and describe how the elements of the different sets can be paired, such that * if one set is considered the domain and the other the range, then the relation is not a function, and * if the roles (domain and range) of the two sets are reversed, then the relation is a function. Part II A{Feline, Canine, Reptile} B{African Lion, Domestic Cat, Coyote, Labrador Retriever, Snapping Turtle, Alligator} This is a relation because A has multiple relations within B, but when the domain and the range are switched this becomes a function because when B is the Domain each element in B matches with one element in A. ...

Vast movement of food can cause a problem because it allows nations to make error by transporting the movement of food. As a result people can become sick or suffer illness from wrong products which generally results in recalls of food. Then there can also be a benefit of the movement of food because it allows you to experience food from other nations which otherwise we would be able to experience without traveling to that nation and it also can produce great revenue for that nation when you purchase their goods.

I would approach hiring a new worker for my unit by following the establishment phase of the employment cycle. Based upon text published by Wiley and Sons, the establishment phase of the employment cycle consists of “identifying staffing needs, job analysis, recruitment, selection, employment arrangements and remuneration”. Considering that I have been given the task for conducting the recruitment and selection process; I would begin by determining what the company’s staffing needs are. Forecasting Labor Supply and Demand. Gomez-Mejia et.al (2016) discusses the human resources labor supply and demand. Labor supply is defined as “the availability of workers with the required skills to meet the firm’s labor demand. In other words the labor supply consists of the employees that already work for the company who have the capability to perform the job as outlined in the job description. Labor demand is defined as the amount of workers the company will need in the future to meet the needs of the company (Gomez-Mejia, Balkin, & Cardy, 2016, p. 155) .According to Lunenburg ( 2012) the planning function of the human resource management process consist of “defining an organization’s goals, establishing a strategy for achieving those goals, and developing a comprehensive set of plans to......
