1. Introduction 1.1 Purpose of the system

Nowadays, people become interest in health more than ever. Not only the youth, but also elders spend more free time on exercise. Because of everybody realize that exercise makes you healthy and cure the disease. Moreover, fat people choose working out instead of using diabetic medicine because of disadvantages from using medicine such as yoyo effect.
BMI: Body Mass Index is ratio between the body weight and height. The value shows us how healthy we are. If the value less than 18.5, you are skinny. If the value is between 18.5 and 24.9, your weight is normal. If the value is between 25 and 29.9, you are overweight. If the value is between 30 and 39.9, you are obese. If the value is over 40, you are morbidly obese. The BMI value is well known for people who exercise frequently. In this project, we realize the importance of the health, so we create the program called “Mr.Fitness” which is the assistance for the people who love exercise to measure his/her BMI. It shows the right method for doing exercise. In additional, the interface is made for user to use comfortably because we show each exercise step-by-step.

1.2 Scope of the system Our program, Mr. Fitness, is for people who like exercise but don’t have much time to go to the fitness center, such as businessmen, students, workers, and so forth, those who don’t have enough time to look for healthy information. There are lots of exercise paradigms in this application with models which are represented in order. This program is very easy to follow the models and understand. Moreover, the program allows us to calculate how much we can lose the calories, and also recommend how to get the perfect shape. For the people who are really interested in this application and follow the recommendation, we believe that they can get their goals perfectly.

There are some exercises parts of the body are included in this application which are:
- arm training
- abs training
- shoulder training
- back training
- chest training
- leg training
- The calculation part of the body which is: BMI calculation
- The help part for the user to find where the fitness center is Fitness Finder

- The tips part that help the user to know the tips to have a good exercise by showing what should do in order.

- There is some information that tells about what food the user should eat to have a proper nutrient to the body.

This application is written by Java, so the user can use in any operating system. The first input is to select what the users want to do in this application: exercise, calculate BMI, find fitness center, and get some useful information about exercise and food. Then the output will be in a form of picture, map, and description of what the user want to know. The interface of this application is design to be very easy to understand and use.

1.3 Objective and success criteria of the project
The objective of this project is to instruct users how to do healthy exercise in order to gain the most benefits from it. Because of exercise can help people from preventing chronic health conditions to boosting confidence and self-esteem. The benefits are for everyone to take, regardless of age, sex or physical ability. Nowadays, many people are misunderstanding about the method of exercising. Therefore, this program will help to guild users about doing effective exercise. The objective is measurable in terms of the average users’ body mass, ratio of muscle compare with their weight which this program is trying to achieve. The objective is time-bound and should be completed roughly within one month time. By using this application, users can get a lot of advantages by the following:

Nowadays, there are plenty of people who are concerning about their health problems. The following topics are the part of these problems:

- People are lacking of knowledge about how to eat healthy food, how to maintain their weight to be in standard and how to change their eating behavior.
- Skip dinner because of misunderstanding that it can decrease the weight.
- Lack of important vitamins in each meal.
- Eat less than 3 meals per day.

People do many risky activities which can damage their health.

- Drinking alcohol.
- Having food which contains a lot of fat and carbohydrate such as oily food deep-fry.
- Smoking cigarette.
- Not enough sleeping.
- Never do exercise.
- Genetic.
- Heredity such as Diabetes, Obesity, Cancer, Heart disease and High blood pressure.
- Environment.
- Bad pollution.
- Loud Noise.
- Psychosomatic problem from the environment.

These problems are just only the part which can lead people to be unhealthy. We generally see these problems in many groups of people. As a result, people are prone to give more attention in their health problems. The easiest way is to have an exercise which can help people to have better physical and mental health.

2. Current System

At the present time, people become intend to interest in healthy more than ever. So, people look through valuable food for consuming, the way of choosing supplementary, and reduce the possible risk activities to provide the better health. Moreover, working out which is an easy way, but it would be effect to the health unaware.

Exercise is one of the benefit activities that effect for human health. Nowadays, there is abounding of fitness centers which lead to the foundation of many branches and receive a good feedback too. Otherwise, not only it effect to body health but also makes good benefit to mental health too. Moreover, training is an activity which relaxes from stretch such as yoga.

How to play fitness, we should have information about what is a correct and safety way to play. Because player is benighted and plays in the wrong way, it has damage to anatomy.

Thus, Mr. Fitness is a fitness program that is constructed in the first time and teaches how to play fitness in the accurate way. The data is separated by each part of human body such as arm, leg and hip. It can calculate amount of BMI and command food plan too.

3 Proposed System

3.1 Overview Mr. Fitness provides the user with efficient and convenient tool. Almost of the function and information and shown how to do exercise in correct way by using visual such as picture and map. For an example, when user click at the arm command which has hand icon and choose the activity it will show the step by using picture to present the method of this activity step by step. Moreover it includes the find fitness center function to help the user who interest in exercise activity. This part will support user to find the fitness center where near his/her place. For an example, user just choose the district that his/her resident location. The result is the program will show the nearest fitness center. In additional, there are 3 more functions which are Tips, Healthy food, and BMI calculator.
Healthy food and tip are program options that provide user to get information about tips of exercise activity and useful data to achieve the goal for user such as the best 5 cardio exercise activity and workout. Otherwise, BMI calculator is an option that calculates that amount of body mass in user body. With the simple user interface, the users will be able to know and understand how to use the program.

Security and Baselines

...Security and Baselines When dealing with security and baselines, you will always want to consider your security logs as a kind of timeline for when security events and baseline anomalies occur. The security log can provide such details as the time bandwidth use began to skyrocket, indicating a possible brute-force attack, transfer of large amounts of data, or other type of undue network activity. The security log may also provide you with a glimpse of how an attack occurred, such as logging the ports accessed, failed password attempts, systems and files accessed at any given time, etc. When dealing with security breaches, it’s always best to keep ahead of the game, and know what you would do to better prevent or mitigate damage from such a breach. For instance, if the employees use laptops in the field during the course of their day, there is always a chance that laptop may be lost, stolen, or hacked. If the information on the laptop is not encrypted, you may be leaving valuable company data at the hands of whoever winds up with the laptop. An easy, affordable way to limit access to your company’s data would be to encrypt the hard drive of the laptop, as well as any storage devices plugged into the laptop, and any data transmitted to or from the laptop. What if one of your employees has been browsing the internet, even when they feel they were being discrete with their browsing, and their computer wound up infected with a virus? This virus could, unbeknownst to the...

...PROJECT PROPOSAL FOR SCHOOL FEEDING PROGRAMME (SOLOMON PROJECT) PROPOSAL DONE BY: MIRECO COMMUNITY BASED DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION ABSTRACT Ever went to school or work with an empty stomach? Then surely you can remember the difficulties you can have in trying to concentrate on the tasks given to you. Your attention gets drawn to that empty feeling inside your body, the cry for food. The above mentioned scenario is just a nightmare for others. But to others it is not an incidental thing but occurring day after day. Who can stand there and see it happen and still do nothing.., just standing there and let those things happen without feeling pity for those people? This is what happens in some schoolsin Kenya. Quite a number of the children come to school with little or no food for breakfast, just chewing some bush fruits, if they found any on the way to school. Getting in class with an empty stomach surely is not the right start for a day at school; concentration is lacking, attention is drawn to that gnawing feeling inside. These children don’t have the energy for sports; fall sick more often as their resistance is undermined by under-nourishment and drop out more easily from school. What would you do if you saw it happening? Would you just be the bystander or the one that would take action? Surely it is impossible to help the whole world but this doesn’t mean that we don’t have the obligation to help, even with just the little bits we can share. That is why our......

Multiple Baselines Across Behaviors

...Mutiple Baseline Across Behaviors The case study I have chosen is Mrs. Davis, which used a multiple baseline across behavior design. Steve has a number of behavior issues that interfere with his and his classmates learning. One of the weaknesses in multiple baseline across behavior design is being able to attaining functional similarity and independence among the target behavior. Especially trying to establish functional similarity before intervention. The problem I see with the design is the uncertainty of the intervention having a carryover effect from the first behavior change to the second and then to the third. Establishing functional similarity and independence among target behaviors may not be easy. There are many variables that can impact internal validity some of those are history, maturation, testing effects, and instrumentation to name a few. The time to be concerned with internal validity is in the design phase when careful consideration needs to be used when which variable will be observed and recorded and this is the time to identify any rival behaviors because after he intervention is ran it is too late. Other behavior issues could surface with Steve and he may transfer his behavior to another setting that would affect external validity. Sometimes when increasing internal validity it may decrease external validity. Uncontrolled variability can be reduced only if you identify its sources. The first step in identifying these uncontrolled variables......

Proposal

...In this day and age, people of all races and sex’s, are becoming increasingly overweight. This main problem stems a number of medical and economical concerns as the “obese” continue to suffer greater probability of heart disease, high blood pressure, and reduced work productivity. It is obvious that this matter cannot continue lest the world be strained by easily averted medical disasters. I wholeheartedly believe that society would be better off without them and even better then that if they are put to use. Therefore I propose that anyone that is currently in the obese category, along with those that enter after my proposal take effect, shall be rounded up and put into work camps. When the obese first enter the camps, their weight shall be taken and recorded into official records for future use. After the check in process is complete, the workers will be delegated to a variety of manual labor jobs that would seem “unpleasant” to the average weight individual. The work itself will be beneficial to society. For example, employers will not have to pay reluctant workers by the hour to slack off most of the day but instead be able to train them for more skilled positions of the workforce. These now skilled average weight workers will prove more effective in society and thus contribute to a growing economy. Also, the manual labor will contribute to the better health of those obese. By getting into better shape, these individuals will reduce their risk of various medical......

What Is a Baseline for Network Behavior

...know your system you are observing on a daily basis is essential. Doing so you develop a kind of sixth sense to when things are going wrong. If you are always observing when things are going right you will better understand when things are not doing what they are supposed to do. This is also known as a baseline, or something you can refer to when you think there may be an intrusion or malfunction. When you’re more comfortable with a baseline, and how your system operates then it is easier to spot what professionals call anomalies. These are things that force your system to not run properly or maybe be able to look at the system files, causing security issues. Some of these things are worth taking note over, and some are not. It is necessary to look into all anomalies, and these can be detected by a Network Behavior Anomaly Detector. These types of programs allow you to use real time packet analysis to find different types of security threats. Discovering different security threats and patterns can prove to come in handy. By utilizing traffic pattern packet analyzers, you can find anomalies that are in your baseline traffic. Becoming more comfortable with how your baseline operates will give you clues to when an intrusion is occurring. The more you see these intrusions or attacks on your network you will be able to identify them quicker. Now when you are a victim of an attack, as a system administrator you need to know where to start looking. Log files are the best......

The Proposal

...THE PROPOSAL A Modest Proposal I had to read the proposal a couple of times to understand what the intention of it was. English being my second language makes it hard for me to easily understand the writing from the past. For what I understood the ending was a lot different than what I expected. I was expecting for Jonathan Swift to end the proposal by stating everyone would become a slave. Also, by following the proposal “A Modest Proposal” you would thing everyone is going to be either killed, sent to jail, or become a slave. According to the reading, everything is going real bad in the community. I think the turning point for me was when Jonathan Swift wrote, “that they will first ask the parents of these mortals” (as cited in Sayre, 2012, p. 775). This section made me realize Swift was in favor of fixing the poverty of the Irish families. I started to understand the why he wrote the proposal. The whole meaning behind proposal was to seek for other help in fixing the poverty in the town. Jonathan Swift was a good writer in his time. He was respected by the people that surrounded him. Swift did a very good job in his writing where he was able to grab me in the start and had me thinking one thing. Once I finish the reading the proposal a couple of times it was very impressing on how he had me changes my focus. Once I understood what he was doing with his writing it was amazing. It is very interesting on how writers make you think one thing in the start and......

Baseline Fetal Heart

...Baseline fetal heart rate is the average fetal heart rate (FHR) rounded to increments of 5 beats per minute during a 10-minute segment, excluding periodic or episodic changes, periods of marked variability, or baseline segments that differ by more than 25 beats per minute. * In any given 10-minute window, the minimum baseline duration must be at least 2 minutes, or else the baseline is considered indeterminate. In cases where the baseline is indeterminate, the previous 10-minute window should be reviewed and utilized in order to determine the baseline. * A normal FHR baseline rate ranges from 110 to 160 beats per minute. If the baseline FHR is less than 110 beats per minute, it is termed bradycardia. If the baseline FHR is more than 160 beats per minute, it is termed tachycardia. * Baseline FHR variability is based on visual assessment and excludes sinusoidal patterns. Variability is defined as fluctuations in the FHR baseline of 2 cycles per minute or greater, with irregular amplitude and inconstant frequency. These fluctuations are visually quantitated as the amplitude of the peak to trough in beats per minute Baseline Fetal Heart Rate Variability Fluctuation Classification Undetectable Absent Undetectable to ≤ 5 beats/min Minimal 6 to 25 beats/min Moderate > 25 beats/min Marked Baseline Fetal Heart Rate Variability Fluctuation Classification Sinusoidal pattern differs from variability in that it demonstrates a smooth, sine wave-like pattern of......

Proposal

...central tenet of Emory’s intellectual life. It allows us to test hypotheses, provides the basis for data analyses, centers humanistic inquiry, and is the substance of the creative process. In October 2011, a committee under the leadership of Mellisa Anders (Professor of Art History) and Melanie Donson (Professor of Physics) put out a call for proposals. An enthusiastic response from the wider Emory community, including faculty, students, staff, and alumni resulted in the selection of four final themes. In February 2012, the four proposals were posted on the Propsal website. In late February and early March the authors of these proposals made public presentations at town hall meetings, providing additional information and seeking comments and reactions from the Enchatia community. Feedback was also received through electronic outreach to relevant constituents. Revised proposals were reviewed in April 2012 by the QEP Selection Committee, resulting in the recommendation of Primary Evidence as Emory’s QEP. The SAD leadership team, under the guidance of President Andrews, accepted this recommendation. The quality of the proposals was outstanding and much energy and imagination was invested in their development. A closer review shows many overlapping themes and objectives for the ongoing enhancement of education at Ehtiala, suggesting that the community at large subscribes to common goals. In the Fall 2012, the SAD leadership team will appoint a faculty......
