For my term paper, I researched on Cyber Terrorism. I believe that Cyber Terrorism is a big problem in our society and may even be a worldwide problem for all humanity today. I want to do my term paper on Cyber Terrorism because I had some personal experience with this sort of terrorism. About a two years ago, I encountered a Hacker on America Online. I opened an unknown message in my mailbox that was titled Free Nude Teens. Then about a couple weeks later, we received all sorts of bills that had to be paid. My father received bills for many different things such as electronics, clothes, and other items that had been purchased under our account on the Internet. My father was so pissed off because he thought that my brothers or I had purchased all those items. So we called the Company and found that our computer had been hacked into. And the so called hacker purchased items on our account number. And we found that the hacker gained entry by a message that I had opened . So we ended up paying only a thousand dollars out of almost six-thousand dollars worth of goods purchased on America Online. I want to do my research paper on Cyber Terrorism because I want to stress to people that this is a big problem and will become worse in the future since everything is being done in Cyber Space these days. In this research paper, I will prove that hackers gain power and publicity with crimes they commit through cyber space. And it is easy for even amateur hackers to gain information and money from powerful organization without any detection or suspicion. Hacking is also a costly and destructive force for people in Cyber Space. Cyber Terrorism is such a...

The career that I choose to research was Computer Engineer. One of the reasons why I choose to research this occupation is because I am very interested in the field of computer science and because someday I hope to work in the field. I also choose this particular occupation because it receives a relatively high salary compared with other occupations in the field, and salary is an important issue for me. I also love using computers, I use my computer almost every day. When one of my family members computer breaks or when our home network is not working, I'm usually the first person to try and fix the problem. Also, many people have told me that computer engineering is growing fast and there will be many good opportunities to come. "I was told in college that computer programming is the fastest-growing carreers there is; that is true, but its not hiring a lot of new people" (Mitchle) In today's competitive economy having a technical advantage over others can be the difference between success and failure. This is where computer engineering come in. Computer engineers design, troubleshoot, and develop programs and computer systems for many different applications. Many engineers are being hired today by companies to build and maintain their networks and computers. Enginners are also in high demand, especially to develop solutions for faster and better computers to aid in business, accounting, telecommunications, and almost any job where you would use a computer. In order to be a good computer engineer you must show that you are fairly competent in certain social skills, complex problem solving skills, and technical skills. The social skills you must have for this occupation are coordination, and you must work well with other people. The technical skills needed are technology design, testing, troubleshooting, and judgment and...

Life is very difficult for the first generation of immigration in America. There are many reasons responsible to this situation, both from society and from individuals. I think one of the major reasons is our poor English. I have been in United States more than ten years and I have a nice job, working for a biotech company as a senior scientist and the Research Manager. But my English is still very poor, because almost all the scientists in my company are Chinese. The major language we speak at work is Chinese, and we only speak Chinese at home. I was a medical doctor, a professor and the Chairman of Molecular Biology Department of a medical school in China. Therefore, I have little problem in my scientific research work, but I do have many problems because of my poor English. My professional English is only good enough to read reference papers and to give presentations of my work, but not good enough to write manuscripts for publications. In order to be accepted for publication, I have to ask my boss and secretaries who are native English speakers to help with my English, otherwise, the reviewers would comment the manuscript is written in poor English. Furthermore, as the Research Manager, I have to present our research work to investors and to discuss with scientists from other companies, which require me to speak perfect English. Although I always try my best to prepare myself, sometimes I still have difficulties to communicate clearly with them and I have to ask my boss¡¯s help. All of those have affected the efficacy of my professional work. My poor English not only have limited my work, but also affect the quality of my life. Sometimes I was invited to parties. People at the parties were nice, kind and...

Looking back in history the one thing that caught my eye was the great depression. I wanted to learn more and get a better understanding of exacting what was the great depression. Even though I have learned about it in other history classes. I never really understood of what happen or what cause the depression and that is why I choice to do my research paper on this particular topic. After doing this research paper it help me to understand what was the real cause of the great depression for example I learn one cause was the crash of the stock market. I also learn that many people were unemployed due to the depression and how many businesses went under. The great depression and the things I learn from it is relate to the topics of this course is by jobs and unemployment. Due to the budgets cuts in work forces a lot of people are unemployed and if it keeps continuing I believe there just might be another great depression. When I was doing my research paper the Internet was my best source to get my information because there are so many sites you can go to and each sites provides you with enough information that you need about any topic. The way I choice the site I wanted information for my paper was the one who provided me with the most information about my topic. I believe my information I have got is reliable and the way I know is because what I have learn before about the topic in other classes matches with my sources on the internet and with all the sources I have use they will be primary. The Great Depression was the worst time in history for everyone. It was the worst financial slump ever in...

MEDICAL TRANSCRIPTIONISTS Medical transcriptionists perform technical clerical work in transcribing medical cases. They transcribe clinical reports, test results, and other information from voice dictation. They work in many hospitals and other facilities and some work right out of their own home. I believe this is a very good career to get into for many reasons. Medical transcriptionists are not just typists or secretaries; their skills are not as simple as theirs. A medical transcriptions is a medical language specialist who interprets and transcribes medical records from tapes in order to compile written documentation of medical information on individual patient cases. They use a transcribing machine with headset and foot pedal, listen to recording by physicians and other HealthCare professionals dictating a variety of medical reports. They have a good command of English grammar and know thousands of words of highly technical medical vocabulary. They are good listeners and they need to be able to understand many different foreign accents. They are very skilled workers being that they need to know so much. I choose this career because it looked interesting to me and I enjoy typing and learning medical abbreviations. I learned of this career at the Career Expo this year. I was interested immediately. It seemed to be a fun, easy, moderately good paying job, so I decided to do my research paper on medical transcriptionists so I can learn more about the profession I would like to get into. Since medical transcriptionists deal with a lot of grammar and medical terminology, they are many educational requirements. You must have a high school diploma or something equivalent to it. Some helpful high school courses include English, biology, anatomy and some type of typing class. It is also preferred that you graduate from an accredited school for medical records terminology. There are many different colleges and business schools that have courses in Medical Transcription. Some include Carnage College, Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College, Fox Valley Technical...

I intend to investigate the problem with female managers not having equal amount of positions, respect and earnings that male managers receive at the same rank. I believe that this is an important phenomenon to study because females have moved forward in the workplace and have even earned a high position in companies. This number of women managers is also growing, "In 1970, only 33.9% of American managers were women; by 1980, this figure had grown t0 40.6% (Cetron, Lucken, McFadden, & Weir, 1987)",(Brett, Reilly, & Stroh, 1992, p. 251). However, the few women that achieve a managerial position, receive less money the their male CO-workers, "Given that equally productive females receive a lower wage than do males, the result of choosing to practice discrimination against females is that costs are higher than need be and profits are lower than need be (Jones, & Walsh, 1991, p. 847)." My research will focus on the problem that females are not seen as equals in the work place, and that they are discriminated against in pay(economics), "Gender differences in salaries reflect women's lower status: For every dollar earned by a male manger, a female manager earns only 66 cents (Powell, 1993)",(Riger, Stokes, & Sullivan, 1995, p. 534), numbers that are employed and respect from fellow workers and the public "People have described men as more like good managers than women, and good managers as higher in stereotypical masculine traits than stereotypical feminine traits (Powell, 1988, p. 148)", (Fremgen, Martinez, & Zeff, 1994, p. 761)". The few women that achieve a managerial position, receive less money and respect than their male CO- workers in the same rank. I think that this research question is an important phenomenon to be studied because, women have come such a far way from the traditional role of the homemaker, secretaries and operators to being in managerial positions and that they are just as capable as a men in...

A primary concern for Psychology research is depression. Depression affects a great deal of our population and many aspects of an individual's mental health and well-being. In my research of books, articles, and Internet pages on depression, I chose to base my paper mainly on a 1994 article of a study of depression, entitled Depression, Working Models of Others, and Relationship Functioning, by Katherine B. Carnelley, Paula R. Pietromonaco, and Kenneth Jaffe. This study focuses on the idea that the type of care received in childhood, positive or negative, has a great effect on relationship functioning later in adulthood. But there are two links between child-rearing and relationship functioning: attachment style and depression. Both derive from the type of care received in childhood and affect relationship functioning, and both exert a reciprocal influence on each other in adulthood. The researchers of this study wanted to examine all the correlation's between type of care, attachment style, depression, and relationship functioning. They proposed a three part hypothesis: 1. A less positive childhood would result in an insecure attachment style and depression, 2. Depressives would exhibit a preoccupied or fearful style of attachment, and 3. attachment style would affect relationship functioning more than depression. The research was conducted in two independent studies. The first study sampled 204 college women. Women were studied based on the very plausible assumptions that women are more susceptible to depression than men and relationships carry more significance with women than men. The women were screened using the Beck Depression Inventory, a popular method of testing consisting of 21 multiple choice questions to be administered by a clinician. The questions range in scope from feelings of sadness to loss of libido. From these results, a sample of 163 was taken: 73 whose scores indicated mild depression. From this point...

Introduction This essay portraits my journey of learning habits, experiences and strategy I will be using to successfully complete my masters degree. One of the important way of learning I feel is reflective writing and critical thinking which helps to evaluate ones strategies and also to evaluate the overall approach to ones work and their effectiveness in applying skills. In recent years the word critical thinking has become a buzz in education system. For many reasons educators have started teaching 'thinking skills' with contrast with teaching information and content. In a brief version of critical thinking can be stated as " the use of those cognitive skills or strategies that increase the probability of a desirable outcome. It is used to describe thinking that is purposeful, reasoned and goal directed - the kind of thinking involved in solving problems, formulating inferences, calculating likelihoods, and making decisions when the thinker is using skills that are thoughtful and effective for the particular context and type of thinking task. Critical thinking also involves evaluating the thinking process - the reasoning that went into the conclusion we've arrived at the kinds of factors considered in making a decision. Critical thinking is sometimes called directed thinking because it focuses on a desired outcome. " Halpern, Diane F. Thought and Knowledge: An Introduction to Critical Thinking. 1996. (http://www.kcmetro.cc.mo.us/longview/ctac/definitions.htm) Critical thinking can be seen as having two components: 1. a set of skills to process and generate information and beliefs, and 2. the habit, based on intellectual commitment, of using those skills to guide behaviour. It is thus to be contrasted with: 1. the mere acquisition and retention of information alone, (because it involves a particular way in which information is sought and treated,) 2. the mere possession of a set of skills, (because it involves the continual use of them,) and 3. the mere use of those skills ("as an...

For my assignment I used Microsoft Excel. I thought that this would be a good package to use because of its many different features. I felt that it had the best features available that were suitable for my task. There were many advantages to Excel. Using Excel, I was able to enter text, charts, graphs and also formulas. I found that I could input data very easily and the package helped me present my data in a very clear and organized way, more so than if I had used a different application such as Word. If I had used word, I would have had to calculate and enter in the information I needed every time. However, by using Excel I could enter formulas and therefore I did not have to change everything myself when I entered in a new piece of information, but rather they changed automatically. By adding these formulas all my calculations were worked out for me. I could also see what would happen if I added different values to my spreadsheet without having to change everything else i.e. a computer model. If I had have used Word then I would have had to do all calculations by myself. Using Excel I was able to add charts to my work which helped me to present my information even more clearly and also more attractively. Collecting Information I got the information which I required to do my assignment from 'The Link' catalog. I obtained this from The Link mobile phone store in Newry. I also did some ringing around to other mobile phone stores to inquire to see if their prices were the same or cheaper. Evaluation After finishing my assignment and using Microsoft Excel to complete it, I can now come to a conclusion on what tariff would be best for the student and the sales...

With any essay that I write, my main objective is to paint a picture with words. There are three basic guidelines that I follow in order to paint this picture. By writing down my ideas, putting my ideas together on a word processor and then going back to revise is how I compose an essay or any other written work. I feel that these guidelines are essential to a well developed essay. When I'm given a writing assignment, one of the first things that I do is focus on the subject or topic of the essay. If it's a subject that I am knowledgeable of, I would add my own input and incorporate it into my writing. And if it's not a subject that I am familiar with, I would do some type of research on the subject. One of the most important processes of my written work is the gathering of detailed ideas. When I am forming ideas about my subject for an essay, the first thing that I usually do is concentrate on what I want to write. What do I want to say to my audience? What is the purpose of my writing? I have learned that by knowing the purpose of your writing keeps you focused on it. Once I have found the answers to these questions, I try to stay focused. I gather details for my subject that will help support and develop it. I try to utilize sensory details, specific examples, facts and statistics, or incidents or anecdotes - if they are needed. The next thing that I do is figure out how do I want to say it. I'll start by writing out a few sentences about my subject and then I determine which one represents my idea most effectively. Once I have found...
