...CAPSTONE QUESTION ETH 125 Nancy Martinez CAPSTONE QUESTION What information about race and ethnicity in the United States has helped you better understand or relate to specific minority groups? Learn many things from participating and reading the discussion questions from my classmates about race and ethnicity. Coming from Hispanic family that has treated Individuals for what they are, not their skin color learned that many races were discrimininated. This class has taught me that the Media has influence by their negative reporting human been race and culture. How could you use this information in your job, community ( e.g. church, school, group, Family), or a potential job. In my church group have talked many of my friends about the different race and culture that we have in our community. Not only we have Hispanics, not only we have a Mixture of Asian groups and other culture. Some of them were amazed that they thought Hispanic was the only ones that lived here in our community. Educating my peers that the website on U.S. Census will inform them race population in their community and just by talking to your neighbors learn about each other. Education plays a key role in today’s society, and become better citizen. If you were to be involved in politics or in the......

...Title Antonio Valentin CJS/210 October 18, 2012 Diane Boleware Capstone Discussion What is your opinion of probation? What should happen with probation programs in the future? Do you think it would be appropriate to increase restrictions imposed on probation? Explain your rationale My opinion of probation is that I feel probation is driven and controlled by politics. I feel probation is given to certain inmates that fall under a category to lessen the burden of overcrowding prisons or when the courts do not have enough evidence so they have to offer something to make it seem they did something for society. I believe probation programs in future should be changed. Probation programs should be only offered to first time offenders and low crime juveniles. If an individual returns to the courts for committing another crime then the right to probation should be revoked and the individual should serve their complete conviction time. This may deter some individuals from turning into a life of crime. I think it is appropriate to increase restrictions imposed on probation. I believe the probation program is abused by inmates and politics. I believe offenders have learned what offences have the possibility of getting probation and that is why they commit the crime because there is no fear of incarceration. I believe politics play a role on probation depending who is running for some sort of political office. For example one runner might want......

...Capstone Most media in today’s society show acts of sexuality that is common and it is expected. Depending on what type of media it is. Some show girls that are flirtatious at a young age and it shows some that may be having sex at a young age as well. A lot of girls in today’s time think that its ok to be that way to try to get older guys attention with the way they dress or how much makeup that they may wear. Media portray some young men that may be pressuring a girl to have sex or it may portray them as sexual predators. The media has also represented gays and lesbians more so than they would years ago. And that is probably because it is accepted more not than it used to be. I think this is a good thing because people who are gay or lesbian don’t have to be ashamed of how they are especially if they are younger. I think some negative effects of the media’s portrayal of sexuality is the message that it’s sending to the younger generation and our future generation. That it’s ok to have sex young, it’s like the media is putting peer pressure on the younger kids along with what they deal with every day in school or at home. It is a greater risk for kids to start having babies early or be at risk of STD’s. They make it seem like sex is everything and being a virgin is like a disease that’s not a good view to have. I can say that the positive side is people meaning gays and lesbian do not have to hide who they are. They may not be accepted everywhere, but they can be...

...Capstone Wal-Mart Introduction Wal-Mart Corporation is one of the largest retail stores in the world. They serve customers in meeting their needs with low cost saving items. On October 31, 1962, Wal-Mart was founded and incorporated by Sam Walton in Bentonville, Arkansas. Mr. Walton went into business because he felt that items sold were too high for the average customer to afford. His focus was to sell products at low prices to get higher volume sales at a lower profit margin. He bought bulk products from different suppliers so he could incorporate savings into his pricing to lower cost for customers. Under the savings cost concept, Wal-Mart grew rapidly and surpassed its competitors in sales and generating profits. By 1987 there were 1,198 stores in the United States with sales of $15.9 billion dollars and 200,000 associates (Wal-Mart Corporations, n.d.). In 1988, under the direction of David Glass, (the CEO who proceeded Sam Walton) the first Wal-Mart Supercenter was created. It combined general merchandise with a full-scale supermarket to provide a one-stop shopping convenience for customers. By 1991, Wal-Mart Corps had outperformed its competitors in the market. Surpassing both K-Mart and Sears; Wal-Mart was labeled as the leading retailer in the United States. Currently, Wal-Mart has 10,700 stores in 27 different countries and they are operating globally around the world (Wal-Mart Corporations, n.d.). Vision, Mission and Stakeholder...

...Creative Image Group Infrastructure Upgrade Information Systems Capstone Dr. Richard Borroughs April 21, 2013 History of Creative Image Group The concept of Creative Image Group began in 1992 while two friends were attending college. One was majoring in business with a focus on marketing and advertising; the other sought a degree in graphic design technology. The graphic designer was learning how to take an art form that was originally done with paper, pens, acetate, tape and glue and apply those same skills using computerized graphics, layers, vectors and pixels. Business work such as accounting, proposals, estimates, invoices and contracts was performed on an IBM compatible machine while all the graphic and design work was performed on a Mac LC II. Internal communications were executed using a 9600 baud modem system. External communications were performed through U.S. mail, telephone calls and a relatively new technology called facsimile transmissions (fax). Primary project output consisted of creating marketing and advertising materials such as logos, corporate branding materials, advertisements and other promotional print driven materials. Like many partnerships, Creative Image owners eventually dissolved the working relationship to pursue other ventures; however the business license was retained for 20 years in order to continue to allow freelance work by the artist. In 2011, the designer re-entered college to support 20 years of...

...Capstone Paper Brooke Mills New England Institute of Technology NE 265.56 Table of Contents Users and Computers 3 NTFS Permissions 3-4 Global and Domain Local Groups 5 Folder Redirection 6 Website 6 -7 References 8 During this class my group developed a network from the ground up. The company, xyzLiqour.com, was the basis for the network. It is a small organization of 20 users with 4 departments. My portion of the project was the website, Windows domain and user groups, file and folder organization and security. In this paper, I will explain my responsibilities in the project as well as how I configured each task. Figure 1 Figure 1 A user account is an object stored in Active Directory that represents the information that defines a user with access to the network. With this user account a user can access the domain they belong to, or the local computer. All 20 users in the company have a user is and password. In an effort to keep things simple, everyone’s last name was their department. This made it easier for me to keep track of everyone and where they belonged. (See figure 1) There are 4 departments within this company; HR, Tech, Engineering and Sales. Every department has its own folders and sub folders. Creating folders gives each department their own location to store data needed for everyday operations. Attached to every folder are NTFS permissions. NTFS permissions are used to secure...

... are deeply connected to mathematics. A few of the are engineers, architects, doctors, web developers, and many more. I acknowledge that there are some other subjects that completely divert from math and reading, like art, but we can’t assigned the same quality of teaching as if more people are going make a living from playing music than from a career that needs writing, reading, and math skills. 4. What changes has NCLB brought to the education system? Now we are able to hold schools and teachers accountable, which is something we haven’t been able to do in the past in an efficient manner. We have also been able to save money from testing, as standardized tests have a relatively insignificant price when compared to other ways of evaluating students. We are also able to target areas that need improvement and work with those schools to make sure everyone ends up receiving the same quality of education. We are not there yet, but we are working our way up. 5. One component of Capstone is creating a feasible and “realistic” solution to the problem. Mine is to keep using standardized tests, but not relying solely in them. I believe that standardized tests should be complemented with assessment tests that examine the student skills of critical thinking as well as their strengths and weaknesses in other subjects such as social sciences and arts. What do you think of my solution and why? I believe that your solution would be too expensive to implement. In an ideal...

...Why Information Security Management Is Important For Payday Lending Business Laquinta Denise Mason A Prospectus Presented to the Information Technology College Faculty Of Western Governors University In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree Master of Science in Degree Area 3/14/2014 Abstract The purpose of this project was to ensure the client is compliant with the requirements specified by the Grahm-Leach-Bliley Act. Information is what drives business today and if the information is not available or reliable then the business cannot function. Most customer’s information, financial records, medical records, and sales records are stored on computers today. Clients and the government expect business to maintain the availability, integrity and confidentiality of their information. The project was created to address the importance of Information Security Management and compliance for businesses in the financial sector. ABC Loans are a small independently owned payday loan company. The client was concerned about the recent penetration of local business networks and wanted me to perform an assessment on his network and determine the vulnerable areas of his networks and the recommendations for making it more secure and GLBA compliant; now that the assessment is completed the client is aware of the vulnerabilities and the areas where they are not meeting GLBA requirements. My capstone will focus on the steps that will...

...Capstone Rehearsal Guidelines (Revised 9-27-14) Overview The Capstone Rehearsal is an individual simulation that enables students to compete against computer competitors as a means to sharpen their decision making skills and knowledge of the Capstone simulation. It should be noted that the Rehearsal simulation does not include the optional TQM module that is being used in this course. This is because instructors are not given the option to include TQM functions in the rehearsal simulation. Due to some recent updating of the user interface in the Capstone rehearsal the revised guidelines presented below are being made available. Please note, the way the user screens for the tutorial and rehearsal may appear slightly differently depending on whether you are using the legacy view or the Beta view of Capstone. You should be able to switch from one to the other by clicking a control at the very top of your screen.
