A New Kind of Office for the New Generation
For the longest time, office jobs consisted of the same old thing. Employees would get up, get ready, sit in traffic, go into work, punch in, and sit in their cubicle or office until the day ended and went home to get ready to start the process all over again. Now, things are starting to change the offices that we have been accustomed to. As technology grows and expands so does the environment in which we use it. In regards to technology and the office, the two have begun to merge to one. Companies, the existing and the future, are choosing a virtual based type of business. Most, if not all, of the company is controlled and operated through technology and the internet. Converting over has become the popular and innovative thing for business owners to do. Aside from not being able to walk into a building, from the customer’s viewpoint, it goes unnoticed whether a company is virtual or not. Virtual based companies have become more popular and show significant benefits that most find incomparable.
Virtual companies reap benefits not seen by actual businesses. These companies save money that would normally spend on real estate, overhead, supplies, training, and other in-office necessities. Even Davenport and Pearlson (1998) knew many, many, years ago that, “Home offices accomplish the cost-savings objective by replacing company real estate with the employees” (para. 18). They do not need to go find a prime location or worry about how much electricity costs and so forth; these concerns are no longer one of theirs. According to the University of Wisonsin-Milwaukee (UWM, 2010), “employees who telecommute the majority of the work week are more satisfied with their jobs compared to those working mostly in the office…” (para. 1). These employees…...

University Composition and Communication I

...UNIVERSITY COMPOSITION AND COMMUNICATION I New or Used Car My daughter just got her driver’s license when she turned 18 years old now that she’s going to college and she is working a part time job, we are looking into different options of buying her either a new car or used car. We want to find the best car for her. Some of the factors we are considering are gas mileage, car repair bills, the reputation of the different dealerships, and would she be better off in a new car or a used car. We have fights everyday over to the use of my truck, if we were to get her a car of her own there would be no more fights. Regardless of what option we choose, new or used, it would still be new to her and she will be very happy about getting it. When she’s driving back and forth to school she is putting a lot of miles on a car. She has to go to school about twice a day for a short period of time. When she’s working, that’s not as bad as its, less than 2 minutes from our home. So on a normal day she starts outgoing to school, back home, where she does homework for about an hour, and then to work for 2 hours. After she’s done working she comes home and gets ready to go back to school for two more hours. With all the driving she does, we want to make sure she gets a car with good fuel performance. That way she’s not using all of her pay check to pay for gas. I don’t want her to buy a car and have to invest hundreds to thousands of dollars into fixing the car due to how much she has to......

...Nursing Research Critique Assignment Kaplan University Nursing Research Critique Assignment I will be critiquing two different articles. Both studies are nursing studies that evaluate outcomes. I will be following specific key points for a quantitative perspective and a qualitative perspective. There is a guideline that I will be following for each article that includes identifying and examining the data collection and data analysis methodologies used in each study. The names of the articles are The Experience of Patients Undergoing Awake Craniotomy and The Effects of Crossed Leg Blood Pressure Measurement. The references will also be reviewed to determine validity and relationship to the new study. Data Collection Quantitative Study: The operational and conceptual definition is congruent. The key variables were operationalized using the best possible method and with adequate justification. Specific instruments were adequately described and were good choices, given the study purpose, the variables being studied, and the study population. The instrument used specifically was a blood pressure monitor. The blood pressure cuff size, dimensions, and inflation pressure were described. The blood pressure monitor was adequately pretested and calibrated before the study began by a biomedical technician (Foster-Fitzpatrick, Ortiz, Sibilano, Marcantonio, & Braun, 1999). It can be determined that the data collection methods provided data that was reliable and valid. The...

Why I Came to College

...English Composition I February 10, 2014 When I was inspired to come back to college Returning to school for me at this point of time in my life is very important. I have quite a few things I want to accomplish in life, and one definite thing is receiving my degree in the Criminal Justice. The point in my life when I came to this conclusion, I was at work doing yet doing another double. I had just gotten paid and my check wasn’t enough to pay all my bills I had that were due. I couldn’t understand why I still fell short. I had picked up all the overtime I was allowed per pay period and it still wasn’t enough to cover all my bills. I knew it was time for a change in my life. I then enrolled in Schenectady Community College. I signed up to get my degree in Criminal Justice. My first semester went great I was so proud of myself. Second semester I changed degrees and switched to get my degree in Chemical Abuse Counseling. After taking my second semester I realized Chemical Abuse was not for me so I switched back to Criminal Justice. I’m now in my third semester and look forward to completing Criminal Justice and obtaining my degree when I’m done taking all the required classes needed. I’m aware with me switching degrees it set me back a little but I’m in no rush and know I have a long road ahead. Hopefully the courses in chemical abuse I took can count towards my criminal justice degree. I currently work for adults with disabilities. I have been at this job for twelve......

...Employees”, that you vetoed, is of paramount interest to me because I am a Disabled Veteran. This issue directly impacts myself and fellow disabled American Veterans in the workforce. It was your final decision to veto the Bill. I understand your reason for doing so, but please allow my point of view to be heard. Your reason in the veto letter was that the “burden businesses would face in meeting the requirements of this bill would deter job creation and decrease the competitiveness of our city at a time when we can ill afford it”. On the contrary Your Honor, I believe that passing this bill would increase the city’s competitiveness by drastically boosting morale in the workforce. In my opinion, it would create even more jobs, as passing the Bill would reduce workplace hostility in the event of an employee placed in an unexpected medical situation. I am a Disabled Combat Veteran. I am still obligated to provide for my family as well as myself and the passing of this Bill would support veterans, like me, similar to the way we supported our Nation in time of need. Although I have read reports online, of your decision to veto this Bill, I understand that I am not in your position to fully understand your decision. Therefore, I do look forward to your reply expressing your opinions, and your current stance on this issue. Thank you, in advance, for taking time out of your schedule to consider my viewpoint on this matter. I believe it is a critical issue and would like to see the......

Cm107 Reflection

...Unit 9 Reflection Christy Gatlin CM107 Unit 9 Reflections For this assignment I have been instructed to reflect back to the unit two assignment and unit three journal entry. In the unit two assignment we were asked to discuss our goals for college composition 1. Looking back at the goals I set for myself I do believe that I have achieved my goals. My goals were to learn how to correctly write an introductory paragraph and a conclusion paragraph. This course has helped me reach those goals. Strategies I used to achieve those goals was doing research, using the reading material given to us through the Kaplan Library and studying. Without the reading material and the professor being so helpful I don’t think I could have achieved the goals I had set for myself. I am most proud of myself for learning how to write a thesis statement and why it is important. I never really knew how to start a paper correctly. Having an effective thesis in your introductory paragraph is very important. It can make your break paper. The thesis is a statement that tells what your paper is about and why. The project I just completed has taught me a lot. It has taught me to be more comfortable with my own writing skills. It has also taught me that I still need to work on citation and giving proper credit where it is due. I understand why we do citations but I just still need to work on it. I will have to use this in other classes for papers. I think now is a time to set another goal for......

...Running head: SHORT TITLE OF PAPER (<= 50 CHARACTERS) Unit 8 Analysis 1 System Performance Computer Structure and logic Mr.Zakkary 11/11/14 Brandon Walker In computing, file system fragmentation, sometimes called file system aging, is the inability of a file system to lay out related data sequentially (contiguously), an inherent phenomenon in storage-backed file systems that allow in-place modification of their contents. It is a special case of data fragmentation. File system fragmentation increases disk head movement or seeks, which are known to hinder throughput. The correction to existing fragmentation is to reorganize files and free space back into contiguous areas, a process called defragmentation. File system fragmentation is projected to become more problematic with newer hardware due to the increasing disparity between sequential access speed and rotational latency (and to a lesser extent seek time), of consumer-grade hard disks,[3] on which file systems are usually placed. Thus, fragmentation is an important problem in recent file system research and design. The containment of fragmentation not only depends on the on-disk format of the file system, but also heavily on its implementation.[4] In simple file system benchmarks, the fragmentation factor is often omitted, as realistic aging and fragmentation is difficult to model. Rather, for simplicity of comparison, file system benchmarks are often run on empty file systems, and unsurprisingly, the results......

...a real estate line of credit. The author recommends the method to a wide range of real estate investing options, whether investing in commercial real estate, family home, or apartments. Marco further split the method into secured line and unsecured line of credit. Although the Marco appreciates that a secured line of credit allows an investor to take advantage of the equity in their investments, he believes that unsecured credit line will offer an investor much more benefits. Some of the benefits of the secured line credits include no collateral, appraisal, upfront fee, restriction on use, and documentation. Marco believes that when an investor has access to cash without the restriction that that is what every real estate investors need, I also find this to be true. Marco has effectively presented his ideas in a simple and clear manner. Weighing on the advantages and disadvantages of secured and unsecured real estate’s credit line, he concludes that unsecured credit offers more benefits to an investor. The information provided is valid and useful to any real estate investor. “Why Real Estate is a Smart Choice For Investors” Marco Cabajo Published August 14, 2014 http://www.sba.gov/blogs/why-real-estate-line-credit-smart-choice-investors...

Composition 8 Kandinsky

...COMPOSITION 8 Artist: Wassily Kandinsky Completion Date: 1923 Place of Creation: Germany Style: Abstract Art Series: Compositions Genre: abstract painting Technique: oil Material: canvas Dimensions: 140 x 201 cm Gallery: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, USA ‘Composition 8’ is a colourful and captivating painting by Wassily Kandinsky, completed in 1923. It is unclear from the painting as to what the conditions were when it was completed, but it was painted in Germany in 1923. The key materials used by Kandinsky to create his various compositions were ink, oil paints, pencil and watercolours, and “Composition 8” incorporates these mediums. It is one of the works of a series of ‘Compositions’. This work is less chaotic, and presents an overall calm image to the viewer. The focus of “Composition 8” lies on the layout and overall presentation. It was painted while Kandinsky was teaching at the Bauhaus in Germany, and is representative of the Constructivism and Supremism that he had seen in Russia. When Kandinsky returned to Moscow after the outbreak of World War I, his expressive abstract style underwent changes that mirrored the utopian artistic experiments of the Russian avant-garde. The emphasis on geometric forms, in an attempt to establish a universal aesthetic language, inspired Kandinsky and he adopted some aspects of the geometrizing trends of Suprematism and Constructivism, such as overlapping flat planes and clearly delineated shapes.......

...their physical appearance. All of this leading to a loss of interpersonal social interaction. Negative Effects on Job Performance When there is a loss of interpersonal interaction, this has a waterfall effect that causes problems in other areas of a player’s life. In a study that was performed with participants that played EQ and felt that they were addicted, a participant talked about the effects on his job performance (Chappell 2006). He had not been in too work nor communicated with anyone since he was so engrossed in playing his MMORPG that his work had filed a police report. He meet the police at the door an informed them that he was not missing and handed them his office keys, company laptop and credit cards. In his words “I didn’t blink an eye” at doing this (Chappell 2006). After a month and losing his place to live he informed his system that he no longer had a job due to downsizing and asked if he could stay with her until he found new employment. While his sister worked he acted as if he was looking for a job by arranging his clothes to look like he had been out searching or at interviews. When he did get a response from an employer, from his resume that was posted online, he told them that he had already found a position and no longer needed one. Since this act he was playing for his sister’s benefit cut his play time down to 16-18 hours a day from 20 hours he was resentful towards her (Chappell 2006). This is an example of how the addiction to a......

...lack sleep she can become prone to things such as obesity, heart diseases, high blood pressure and diabetes. SECTION B – SOCIAL CARE Behaviourist Approach to Social Care William is 5 years old and has been playing up at school. William is often very disruptive in class and does not sit still and listen when he should. William has also started to hit some of his class friends when they refuse to play with him. William’s teacher has been exasperated with his behaviour and needs to deal with William’s behaviour before it gets worse. What would you do if you were William’s teacher? If I were Williams teacher I would firstly make sure to let him know that what he is doing is unacceptable, I would also inform his parents of this behaviour. Then instead of talking to him or telling him off for misbehaving I would ignore him, however when he did something good I would praise him and reward him with something such as a sticker on a sticker chart, over time his behaviour will improve. How would operant conditioning be useful in modifying William’s behaviour? Operant conditioning would be useful as it would help to strengthen his good behaviour and characteristics whilst weakening his negative behaviours and characteristics. Over time William will learn that if he does something good he will receive a treat and if he does something bad something he doesn't like will happen, therefore he will do more good things to be rewarded and do less bad things to......

College Composition

...Parental Involvement Kerry White Kaplan University CM220: College Composition II Emily Hartsfield October 25, 2011 We need to establish nationwide programs like parent volunteer day so parents can understand the importance of attending school functions because “without parental involvement children will feel inadequate and under appreciated”. “If Parents know their involvement is so important, why aren't they more involved? Not surprisingly, for 2/3s of parents who believe they should be more involved it's lack of time:  38% identified work or a full-time job as a major obstacle and 26% said other demands on their time and scheduling conflicts interfered with their involvement” (Bridgeland, 2008). Parental involvement creates an environment of safety and confidence in a child, which allows them to imagine and maximize their potential. Rather than criticizing parents as unconcerned “slackers” perhaps we could all benefit from a thorough understanding of how we can find potential solutions to fix this problem. No school or teacher can ever substitute for an engaged parent but we definitely need parents and teachers to work together so we can have a child succeed both academically and socially. “Statistics show that students whose parents are actively involved......

The question I would ask, “How do you know things?” I bet everyone ask that question sometime in their lives. I know, I have asked that question a few times. When I think back on how I learned to do a few things I know that I did and did not have the knowledge to do, but through participation, observation or both participation and observation I did gain knowledge. Like fast food, I can remember going to McDonalds with my family for a hamburger. I was very young and did not know what a hamburger was. I observed my brother eat his hamburger, taking a big bite and chow it down in two bites. My father had bought me a hamburger, wanting to be like my bother I took a big bite as he did. Almost immediately, I spit it out! I did not like the taste of the mustered on the burger. That is, when I discovered I did not like mustard. My father bought me another hamburger that was plain and I ate it all up. That day I gained my knowledge both by participation and observation, though the stronger of the to was by participation. Though observing my brother did teach me how to eat a hamburger in two bites. Something that I learned by observation was budgeting money. My mother used to pay all the bills in our family. She had a......
