The Age of Clutter:Conducting Effective Research Using the Internet Critical Thinking: Strategies in Decision Making Using the Internet as a research tool presents new challenges with information overload and problems obtaining and maintaining quality sources (Fornaciari-Roca 1999). The Internet can be a useful tool if used properly and with enough information to conduct proper research. The article I have selected to critique; "The Age of Clutter: Conducting Effective Research Using the Internet. By reading this article, people looking to use the World Wide Web may find effective tools and a clearer understanding. On the other hand, the information obtained by the Internet might also be misleading or irrelevant and lack synthesis and analysis, which can lead to poor decisions based on information they have collected. After reading this article, I can relate with the material and clearly provide information of how the authors' styles are expressed in several elements from their perception to obvious fallacy. The authors' direct statement and perception to the topic of research on the Internet demonstrated the ability to do effective but proper research using the World Wide Web. The emotion to this article affects the peoples' awareness to the difference between knowledge and information. Also, quality research can make a difference in knowledge obtained that can result in people making proper decisions. As the authors' clearly use the informal fallacy (http://gncurtis.home.texas.net/), "Our daily lives are saturated with more data streams than at any previous point in history, and all the evidence suggests that the tide is rising." (Fornaciari-Roca 1999) The problem may result in the collection of a large amount of unrelated and irrelevant data that contributes to the creation of knowledge or the support of good and bad decision-making. I believe the author's argument is to realize the Internet is not an encyclopedia of actual facts, but a...

Adult Sites: Banned or Tolerated Over the past decade the Internet has become an essential part of everyday life. It has provided a common ground for people to interact all over the world. Whether it is through information exchange or a simple chat, the Internet has changed the way society operates. Trade, information, and also a wide variety of entertainment have all become accessible features with the click of a button. There is however one form of entertainment that has overtaken almost every other service that the Internet provides. Pornography on the Internet has become one of the most controversial subjects in the history of technology. Pornography is simply an art form; a depiction of erotic behavior intended to cause sexual excitement. The question is should pornography sites on the web be banned in order to protect minors from indecent material. There are both positive and negative aspects to allowing pornography on the Internet. Probably the greatest thing that Pornography on the web has accomplished is promoting free enterprise. "Porno sites" have turned this art form into a goldmine through the use of technology. Sites such as "Private Gold" or "Cybererotica" simply vend memberships to the public for the privilege of viewing their material. Pornography sites were some of the first ones to launch such impressive business strategies on the Internet such as banners and Online Purchases. In a way pornography launched a computer revolution. Now it seems buying, selling and providing services over the Internet has become a worldwide bonanza. Only few realize that Pornography sites were providing similar services in the early 1990s, thus being a great deal responsible for the Internet's booming success. Ever since the beginning of Adult magazines and films, the field of pornography has constantly received opposition from religious groups and concerned parents that it's...

The number of American households shopping on the Internet is increasing every month. In the month of February, 13.5 million households shopped online compared to 13.3 million in January. Per person spending increased from $228 in January to $308 in February (Enos, 2001). Old Economy companies have taken notice and are moving quickly to embrace this new sales channel. These companies realize that the use of the Web will help to cut costs, find new customers and keep the ones they have (Schoen, 2001). A recent survey by InformationWeek Research found that 65% of respondents say the percentage of their companies total revenue being generated by E-business grew in the past twelve months (Murphy & Heun, 2001). Developing a company web site can be expensive. A small site with 25 pages can cost more than $200,000 and larger sites with hundreds of pages can easily exceed a total of $1 million (Jarvis, 2001). This does not even include costs to handle customer service, product fulfillment, marketing, transaction security, payment services, and site maintenance. To save money, many of these companies are outsourcing their E-business activities to New Economy companies called Commerce Service Providers (CSP). One particular CSP that I feel is the leader at helping companies grow online sales is called Digital River based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. This term paper will show how Digital River is so effective in helping Old Economy companies market and sell their products over the Internet. DIGITAL RIVER SERVICES Defining what a CSP does is becoming more difficult as these companies continue to add to their offerings and change their scope. A general definition of a CSP is a vendor that supplies the system and services to establish the infrastructure for E-businesses. This can include processing secure transactions; collecting payments and issuing e-mail receipts; managing customer...

Archimedes was a Greek mathematician and scientist. He was born in Syracuse, Sicily in the year 287 B.C. He was educated in Alexandria, Egypt. Due to the lack of information about Greek mathematics, many Greek mathematicians and their works are hardly known. Archimedes is the exception. Archimedes was very preoccupied with mathematics. For instance, he often forgot to eat and bathe because of his always wanted to solve problems. He found areas and volumes of spheres, cylinders and plain shapes. He showed that the volume of a sphere is two-thirds of the volume of the smallest cylinder that can contain the sphere. Archimedes was so proud of this concept that he requested that a cylinder enclosed a sphere, with an explanation of this concept, be engraved on his grave. Archimedes also gave a method for approximating pi. He was able to estimate the value of pi between 3 10/71 and 3 1/7. Math wasnï¿½t as sophisticated enough to find out the exact pi (3.14). Archimedes was finding square roots and he found a method based on the Greek myriad for representing numbers as large as 1 followed by 80 million billion zeros. One of Archimedes accomplishments was his creation of the lever and pulley system. Archimedes proved his theory of the lever and pulley to the king by moving a ship, of the royal fleet, back into the ocean. Then, Archimedes moved the ship into the sea with only a few movements of his hand, which caused a lever and pulley device to move the ship. This story has become famous because Archimedes said, "Give me a place to stand on and I will move the earth. Another invention he invented was the Archimedean screw. This machine was built for raising water to highland areas in Egypt that could not receive water...

Dishonest in Plagiarism The essence of plagiarism is theft and misrepresentation. One who plagiarizes is attempting to get credit, in the form of a grade, for someone else's work; in effect, he or she is doing the same sort of thing as copying another person's answers on an exam. Thus guilt or innocence in plagiarism cases is not a matter of how much material was stolen or what the motives of the thief were. Any material which is taken from another writer and presented as if it were the student's own original work comes under the prohibition. Specifically, the following are examples of plagiarism: 1. A paper or assignment actually written in whole or part by another. 2. A paper or assignment copied word-for-word or with only minor changes from a book, magazine, or other source. 3. A paper copied in part from one or more sources, without proper identification and acknowledgment of the sources. 4. A paper which is merely a paraphrase of one or more sources, using ideas and/or logic without credit, even though the actual words may be changed. Notice numbers 2 and 4. Direct quotation is not the only kind of plagiarism. Taking someone else's ideas, judgments or logic, even if you put them in your own words, is as unacceptable as stealing the words. This does not mean that outside sources may never be used. Some subjects and some assignments require research and the quotation of other writers' work. But all such use of outside materials must be properly identified, through quotation marks, internal citations, endnotes, and/or other accepted ways of acknowledging such borrowings. It is not the use of an outside source that is wrong; it is the implicit claim that any material obtained in that manner is in fact original. Nor does this mean that every single fact that you learn from...

Advances in telecommunications and in computer technology have brought people to the information revolution. The rapid advancement of communications technologies and computer networks, combined with the help of technological breakthroughs in computer processing speed, and information storage, has lead to the latest revolution, and also to the newest style of crime, "hacking". When the Internet was first introduced, the term hacker referred to an individual who was knowledgeable of the computer. Today, a hacker is a person who does malicious acts with a computer to the public. Also back when the Internet was introduced, people were not as literate with computer as today. Hacking is one of the highest growing and most costly crime in the world. Each attack on a server can cost the company millions of dollars or cause the company to go bankrupt depending on the size of the company. As the Internet become more and more popular, the growth of computer hacking will increase exponentially. To most people hackers are malignant criminals whose only intent is to cause havoc to the public, but some hackers are righteous. Ultimately there are two views on hacking. One is that hacking is trespassing, stealing information is a crime, and that privacy is something that hackers should not invade. The other is that hackers have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, so therefore they can exercise their Bill of Rights to the furthest extent. The government has already enforced and proposed many laws concerning this matter, but the government has a hard time handling hackers. If the government has difficulties with hacking, then who should judeg the limits of it. The decision can be placed in the hands of the public, but the probability of stopping hacking will never end. Hacking does not necessarily evoke destructions. Some...

File sharing is the practice of making files available for other users to download over the Internet and smaller networks. Usually file sharing follows the peer-to-peer (P2P) model, where the files are stored on and served by personal computers of the users. Most people who engage in file sharing are also downloading files that other users share. Sometimes these two activities are linked together. P2P file sharing is distinct from file trading in that downloading files from a P2P network does not require uploading, although some networks either provide incentives for uploading such as credits or force the sharing of files being currently downloaded. (In My Word's) File sharing is an open standard software running on an open protocol, free for the public to use.It allows you to share any file such as .mp3s, .avis, .jpgs, .tiffs, etc. It normally runs on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux, and other computing platforms. "Publish your original content to the world without setting up a website!" it what is claims to be put most of the files on the network are copyrighted!! The way I see it is it depends on how you use it! most people wont download from sharing sites are usually poor people and spammers! in conclusion "you get what you pay for" which can leave your computer with nasty viruses! if you are going to use it, then use it wisely! www.limewire.com Recommended www.bearshare.com legal www.shareaza.com www.imesh.com legal other companies like imesh and the new bearshare have a legal p2p system were when you download copyrighted material you don't "Own" the music but all non-copyrighted music is free...

You are probably asking yourself, "Why should I care about graphics file formats?" Well, the average end-user (non-programmers) is only concerned with the storage of their graphics information by using a format that majority of graphics applications and filters can read. End-users are not normally concerned with the internal composition of the data within the graphics file itself. Graphic file formats can be divided into two general classes: vector and bitmap. Vector files contain data described as mathematical equations and are typically used to store line art and CAD information. There are two major drawbacks to using vector files. One drawback is that vector files are not suitable for reproducing paintings or photographs. The second disadvantage is that complex images take a long time to display because on most display systems, each vector image has to be converted to a pixel image by a process called "rasterizing"(Cohen and Williams p.109). The advantages of using vector images include easy editing to the image, the amount of memory used to store the image, and the display independence. On the other hand bitmap file formats (also called raster files) contain graphics information known as pixels, such as photographic images. Pixels are the "pictures element,"(Cohen and Williams p.89) or dots on the monitor screen. There are two disadvantages to using bitmap formats. First, it requires a large amount of data to store each image. Second, bitmap images are size dependent and are not suitable for extensive editing. Changing the size of bitmap images can create major problems. Reducing them requires throwing away information; enlarging them produces blocking effects. The major advantages of using a bitmap formats includes good image quality and the quick display speed. There are hundreds of different graphic file formats, many are similar to each other but are made to only interact with...

Some gays are concerned that they will go to hell when they die because they have been told by their church/friends/family/TV/books. Some churches welcome gay members, but these still seem to be the minority, and the negative view prevails that having a homosexual relationship is a sin, and the crime for that is a ticket to the underworld unless the individual stops living a "sinful life" and asks for forgiveness. Well, I'm not a religious person myself and I tend to look at things from a logical point of view. The way I see it is this: if God exists, and therefore created all things, then he also created gay people. It wouldn't make any sense to cerate a gay person if God intended them to be miserable, alone and living each day feeling guilty and dirty about how he or she is feeling. Only a cruel and malicious god would do such a thing, and this isn't what the idea of God is about. being gay is part of you that you can't change, like your eye or hair colour, or the type of personality you have. If God is responsible for making your hair brown or blond, for making your friend straight or your best friend a heavy metal fan, then he's responsible for making you gay. Sexuality isn't a choice, so it's either down to biology or God; neither case should leave you ever having to feel dirty or ashamed of who you are. We are all born with certain unchangeable qualities, and we have to make the best of them. Some people have pets who try to mate with pets of the same sex; I have seen a gay cow bothering other male cows in a field! Animals don't burden themselves with crap about going to hell...

Internet security is a heightening concern with the high-speed Internet connections most consumers are going to. When you're on the Internet you are open to a variety of security threats like viruses, Trojan horses, Identity theft, E-mail monitoring, Website monitoring, and even death in the worst-case scenarios. Virus can do a lot of damage to your system if you let them get on. They can delete files that are critical for your system to run properly. They can gather personal information from your files and send it out over the Internet, for somebody to steal your identity. There have even been instances where the virus uses your computer to transmit SPAM or Internet junk mail to millions of users. Viruses and Trojan horses are major concerns but they are fairly easy to protect yourself from. There are quite a few companies out there who make virus-scanning software that you load on your computer to prevent viruses from getting on. They usually run between twenty to forty dollars and come with one year of free updates. The free updates are extremely important because you should update your virus scanning software every fifteen days. By going with one of the major companies you are going to get faster updates because of their larger twenty-four seven staff. Virus should be your only concern though. With everybody switching over to high-speed Internet access it giving hackers and easier job target who they want to get. High-speed access varies a little from regular access. When you dial your ISP you are automatically assigned a random IP address for a modem and you will use that until you log off. Next time you get on though you will most likely have a different IP address making hard for a hacker to lock on and attack your computer. But with high-speed...

It is a documented estimation that almost one-third of all American homes now have at least one personal computer. Along with that staggering stat, the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science has reported that 95% of the public has access to the Internet. Our society has been able to make these great advances, obviously along with many more important others, due to that fact that every American poses certain unalienable rights. Now in this new Millennium, the very innovation which has grown into the majority of American lives is the focus of a debate which questions our fundamental right to freedom of speech. The Federal Government should not regulate the Internet because that is not the Governments job. Internet Regulation should be left up to Parental guidance and local organizations but most of all, not left to the professional politicians. Raising kids is the job of the parents or guardians who are legally responsible for the children, not the job of the Federal Government. The Cyberspace age has arrived at lightning speed. Children and young people are among the most active citizens of this new era, and are often the first in their family to use the Internet. These days, it is important for parents, schools and communities to take a pro-active approach in making our newest form of communication safe for the children. The best way to assure that your children are using the "net" in a positive way is to stay in touch with what they are doing. One important way to do this is for the parents to spend time with their children while they're online. While children and teenagers need a certain amount of privacy, they also need parental involvement and supervision in their daily lives. The same general parenting skills that apply to the "real world"...

File sharing is what it is thought as, but I don't see it that way. I see it as theft, music theft, most commonly know as shafting. Every day people use shafting and think nothing of it. People sit in front of their computers and go to their favorite website and download file after file with out thinking how or where it comes from. They think it is just there for the taking and it is. What they don't realize is that it is messing over the people who worked so hard pouring out their heart and sole into their music for everyone to enjoy. They are the people who are responsible for the music. Not the people who work at Napster, or any of the other shafting music networks, whom are embezzling from the people we all admire for the way they can flow out those heartwarming words. The words that move us to the point that we want to cry, and sometimes do. The words that we listen to when we want to go off into our own little world, and think about an extraordinary moment we once had that makes our sorrows disappear. The words that remind us of a passed loved one who was once forgotten, and never to be again. They are the people who put their heart and sole into their music; They are the people we use so selfishly and don't even realize how much blood sweat and tears they shed just to put out quality words. They are the people we take for granted, and they are the people who some times take us, their fans, for granted as well, they are the artiest themselves. Shafting is a trend that has just begun, but only time will tell how far it will...

The evolution of music in the 21st Century has set a precedence for the future music, as we know it. Inspired by a fire and passion that revs up the soul; music is the soundtrack to our lives. When we are happy we listen to music, when we are sad we listen to music. Music satisfies and spawns a plethora of emotions that are held bottled up with in us; some use music as a vehicle to express deep thoughts and emotions, others use it to just let off steam that is built from the stress that life brings about. Over time people began to realize that the music industry could deem to be quite lucrative and has become to be one of the most profitable industries in the entertainment field. However, with the rise in success comes the rise in problems. The 90's brought about an upsurge for the use of the super information highway formally known as the Internet. Through the Internet we have been able to do the unimaginable. However the freedom and total access that the Internet provides has created a problem with the recording industry. In the following paper I will attempt to dissect this issue by stating the facts and then my opinion and hopefully you will have a better understanding of the issue at hand. Buyers, traders, and investors gather around as the opening of the market begins. A new hot commodity has people in a frenzy and sales are through the roof. Not even Allen Greenspan could predict the profitability of this new hot product. Although This may sound like a typical day at Wall Street, it's my pleasure to inform you that it isn't. This scene is taken from the usual day on college campuses worldwide. College students have been reaping from...

Approximately 30 million people world-wide use the Internet and online services daily. The Net is growing exponentially in all areas, and a rapidly increasing number of people are finding themselves working and playing on the Internet. The people on the Net are not all rocket scientists and computer programmers; they're graphic designers, teachers, students, artists, musicians, feminists, Rush Limbaugh-fans, and your next door neighbors. What these diverse groups of people have in common is their language. The Net community exists and thrives because of effective written communication, as on the net all you have available to express yourself are typewritten words. If you cannot express yourself well in written language, you either learn more effective ways of communicating, or get lost in the shuffle. "Netspeak" is evolving on a national and international level. The technological vocabulary once used only by computer programmers and elite computer manipulators called "Hackers," has spread to all users of computer networks. The language is currently spoken by people on the Internet, and is rapidly spilling over into advertising and business. The words "online," "network," and "surf the net" are occuring more and more frequently in our newspapers and on television. If you're like most Americans, you're feeling bombarded by Netspeak. Television advertisers, newspapers, and international businesses have jumped on the "Information Superhighway" bandwagon, making the Net more accessible to large numbers of not-entirely-technically-oriented people. As a result, technological vocabulary is entering into non-technological communication. For example, even the archaic UNIX command "grep," (an acronym meaning Get REpeated Pattern) is becoming more widely accepted as a synonym of "search" in everyday communication. The argument rages as to whether Netspeak is merely slang, or a jargon in and of itself. The language is emerging based loosely upon telecommunications vocabulary and computer jargons, with new derivations and compounds of existing...

P2P (peer to peer) Sharing –Crime or Artistic Justice The mark of artistic talents has traditionally not been something quantifiably measured in dollars and cents. Shakespeare was all but a pauper, Michelangelo rather middle class while Pablo Picasso died broke. However with the advent of new information technology, the gross commercialization of art has come to be an externality borne by all members of society. One can hardly turn on a computer without being told what products to put on one's hair -thrust down one's throat and shove into other places on the human body. It is clear, that media affects everyone, as opting out is simply not an option for any individual or collective in today's technologically tyrannical world. Ironically, individuals are not necessarily victims of this modern state of affairs as they are also the benefactors at the cost of some large corporate gurus. With Peer to Peer (P2P) file transfers occurring continuously around the world the individual is given a chance to evaluate art for what it truly is, leaving a greater onus on artist to derive monetary remuneration by alternative means. The modern notion of artist revolves around junkie boy bands and artificially grown vocalist. The list of contemporary self-proclaimed divas includes names like Brittany Spears, Backstreet boys, NSYNC and many others. The so-called artists are manufactured and groomed in multimillion-dollar theatres filled with the most seasoned of spin-doctors, poised specifically to create the sound and image of the day to generate immediate profits. Songs are written, composed and choreographed by hundreds of respective experts only to be thrown into one giant smoke screen wielded by some pop idol that becomes a de facto spokesperson for the myriad of industry pundits; all of whom have a significant stake in the given image. Not surprisingly, when it comes to...

How do you secure something that is changing faster than you can fix it? The Internet has had security problems since its earliest days as a pure research project. Today, after several years and orders of magnitude of growth, is still has security problems. It is being used for a purpose for which it was never intended: commerce. It is somewhat ironic that the early Internet was design as a prototype for a high-availability command and control network that could resist outages resulting from enemy actions, yet it cannot resist college undergraduates. The problem is that the attackers are on, and make up apart of, the network they are attacking. Designing a system that is capable of resisting attack from within, while still growing and evolving at a breakneck pace, is probably impossible. Deep infrastructure changes are needed, and once you have achieved a certain amount of size, the sheer inertia of the installed base may make it impossible to apply fixes. The challenges for the security industry are growing. With the electronic commerce spreading over the Internet, there are issues such as nonrepudiation to be solved. Financial institutions will have both technical concerns, such as the security of a credit card number or banking information, and legal concerns for holding individuals responsible for their actions such as their purchases or sales over the Internet. Issuance and management of encryption keys for millions of users will pose a new type of challenge. While some technologies have been developed, only an industry-wide effort and cooperation can minimize risks and ensure privacy for users, data confidentiality for the financial institutions, and nonrepudiation for electronic commerce. With the continuing growth in linking individuals and businesses over the Internet, some social issues are starting to surface. The society may take time in adapting to the new concept...

UNSOLICITED EMAIL The Titanic was hailed as one of the WONDERS of the WORLD when It departed on it's maiden voyage. The largest and greatest ship in the history of the seas. Not only that but it was thought to be UNSINKABLE! " Don't even think about...this thing can't be sunk!" Now visualize Internet Email as the Titanic. Email is one of the WONDERS of the WORLD of Communications! The voyage is under way, we have left the dock! Passengers of the Titanic have evolved into Surfers of the Internet! Surfers are ecstatic as they discover the empowerment that worldwide communications offers for very little money! Imagine being able to send friends, family, and business associates, important messages whenever you want and receiving them even while you sleep! All basically free! One day a surfer thought "what if I send my very important message to those that I don't even know". After all, "I am sure that they need to this information as it will surely help them!" the surfer rationalized! Continuing the surfers daydream about unsolicited email, "If you don't want it all you gotta do is trash it, or simply hit reply and type "REMOVE" in the subject line. What's the big deal anyway?" WHERE WE ARE HEADED In January 1996 my passion for the Internet was born. The Webworker web site was founded on the premise of helping others become entrepreneurs earning their income from home via the internet. http://www.webworker.com has continued to be developed and is now a TOP 10 WEB BUSINESS Directory. This web site has 100's of web pages with business resources that has something for everyone.

The Internet: A Modern Tool and Teacher for Students The Internet over the last decade has become an ever changing, ever expanding, ever necessary part of life. According to Emarketer, 350 million, roughly 7.4 percent of the population in our world, uses the Internet on a daily basis whether it be at home, at work, or at school. Internet access in the past was only available to government agencies and large corporations. Schools today have increasingly seen the benefits of their students having access to an endless avenue of learning. Colleges with Internet access provide an invaluable source of knowledge to students. In providing the Internet as a way of learning, colleges increase their students' productivity. Libraries, while still an abounding source of information, are not as easily accessible or as fast a source of information as the Internet is today. Students can spend endless hours in a library doing research to no avail. If you were trying to write a paper on a current event, such as the recent September 11th tragedy, you would likely have difficulty locating enough information already in print to write on your topic. However, after using an online search engine five minutes, you could find enough information to write for days on any topic you might choose. A student can access dictionaries, encyclopedias, and atlases from her own computer, which can be a definite advantage. For example, instead of looking for a particular country and simply finding out where the country is in an atlas, students can type in the name of that country, and not only will they find out faster where that country is, but they will obtain more information about that country. The Internet provides information readily and easily on topics ranging from Shakespeare to strawberry Pop-Tarts; whether it be12 a.m. or 12...
