...TESTING TAXATION & FIRM PERFORMANCE Normative theories attempt to tell what “people or constituencies should do”. A normative theory is not solely evaluated by predictive value, but is also evaluated by its logical consistency of how rational individuals should behave. Positive theories “attempt to make good predictions of real world events.” Positive Accounting Theory (PAT) is a positive theory that aims to predict actions such as which accounting policies firms will choose and how newly proposed accounting standards will cause firms to react. Its overall intention is to understand and predict the choice of accounting policies across differing firms. It recognizes that economic consequences exist. Under PAT, firms want to maximize their prospects for survival, so they organize themselves efficiently. Actual organization depends on firm specific factors, which are the determinants of their prospects. Examples include legal and institutional environment, technology, and competition. Firms are viewed as the accumulation of the contracts they have entered into. In relation to PAT, because there is a need to be efficient, the firm will want to minimize costs associated with contracts. Examples of contract costs are negotiation, renegotiation, and monitoring costs. Contract costs involve accounting variables as contracts can be stipulated in terms of accounting information such as net income, and financial ratios. The firm will choose the accounting......

Diagnostic Essay

...Alexandrea Winieckie Mr. Greenup English 101 8 January 2013 Diagnostic Essay English 101 is a requirement in order to graduate from SFCC, if we are pursuing a career field that does not require English why are we required to take it then? English 101 will help our success in other classes while in college and, our career. If English was completed all four years of high school, what necessary will we get out if it doing it once more in college; will it apply to our career, writing skills, or do we simply tolerate it to not obtain anything? English 101 is required for most schools but what essentially is being obtained, for most of us we haven’t utilized proper writing skills since high school. In many classes papers are part of the requirement to pass that specific class with English 101 to diagnose our current writing skills, we will be able to become stronger writers and, become familiar with different writing structures for essays. In the end altogether English 101 will better increase our knowledge of different parts of the essay, themes, punctuation, and the mechanics. Many careers don’t involve English although it is a very important skill to have for the future. Not everyone has the passion to want to become a publisher although while taking English 101 you might have had the passion for something else and, realize that English is something that you enjoy more. It may not be the most liked course but unlike any other class you may take in your college......

...Importance of Non-Functional Testing and Security Testing in Mobile Application Development Abstract Smart-phones have become part of human life. As smartphones become more powerful and usage rises, Smartphone makers have a much wider range of innovation possibilities than their PC counterparts. The personal nature and pocket size of mobile phones and their potential offer a wide scope for developing distinctive handset models targeted at a specific segment of the smart-phone market. The mobile application market’s growth is driven by the widespread push of advanced handset capabilities by the mobile industry and the increasingly-connected global consumer base. Progress of network technologies, restructuring of revenue-sharing pattern, lowering of mobile data usage cost, growing adoption of smart phones, and increase in application usability have contributed to the growth of mobile application adoption globally. This trend has led to substantial surge in the dependence and usage of the mobile Internet, specifically mobile applications. Mobile Application Development is the method by which application software is produced for low power handling devices, mobile devices, and other small digital equipment. As this technological development continues to gain momentum, it's quickly turning into one of the most powerful industries in the world. Majority of the mobile application testers tend to focus more on testing the product against client requirements – Functional...

Self Diagnostic

...Self-Diagnostic Essay Assignment Self-Diagnostic Essay Assignment I was told that the truth and only the truth will set you free and I am far from a J.K. Rowling or a William Shakespeare when it comes to writing. If the Olympics had writing as an event and I was for some odd reason competing in that event. My country will be highly disappointed with my efforts on winning. I have more weaknesses then strengths when it comes to writing, that is why I decided to take this course so I can enhance my writing abilities to reach my goals this semester. One word to describe my health as a writer will be obese. I consider my health as a writer to be obese just for the simple fact that I’m so lazy when it comes to writing. Procrastination is like a permanent disease when I know I have a paper due. It will take me two to three days to start a paper. I have a hard time figuring out the words to express the base of my topic. To be honest it took me my whole weekend trying to get an idea on how I was going to write this essay. My brain will sit there in a daze trying to figure out what to write about then I get writers block. I’m a simple guy so when I have a paper that I need to get done I will try my best not to think or write using simple minded words because I stress so much on what my teacher or professor might think about my writing. Therefore that whole stress factor on writing makes me insecure on my writing abilities. I have never attended any writing groups. The...

... technologies and tools (e.g., modeling, development, infrastructure/middleware, management, and testing) have matured. * Understanding of business and business strategies has grown, shifting attention from technology to the people, cultural changes, and process that are key business success factors. 14.What is the most important skill you need to adopt SOA ? technical or cultural ?  Ans:Surely cultural. SOA does require people to think of business and technology differently. Instead of thinking of technology first (e.g., If we implement this system, what kinds of things can we do with it?), practitioners must first think in terms of business functions, or services (e.g., My company does these business functions, so how can I set up my IT system to do those things for me most efficiently?).It is expected that adoption of SOA will change business IT departments, creating service-oriented (instead of technology-oriented) IT organizations.  15.Is SOA really needed on your opinion?  Ans:SOA is not for everyone. While SOA delivers significant benefits and cost savings, SOA does require disciplined enforcement of centralized governance principals to be successful. For some organizations, the cost of developing and enforcing these principals may be higher than the benefits realized, and therefore not a sound initiative. http://www.tutorialspoint.com/listtutorial/REST-and-SOAP-web-service-Interview-Questions-for-prep/3827 REST Web Service Interview......

Academic Diagnostic

...Academic Diagnostic ​During the enrollment process I completed the academic diagnostic test that tested current writing and reading skills. It has been about ten years since I last completed any test. My anxiety level due to the testing experience on a scale 1-5, 5 being the highest, was 4. My anxiety level being as high as it was, was not only due to the amount of time that I have been out of school, even though that played a major factor, but also because I have never done very well taking any test, whether I study or not. During tests, I get panic-stricken and freeze up, fearful of answering wrong and receiving a discouraging grade. It usually doesn’t matter if the test is just a knowledge test or a test that I studied for, or how long I studied for it; I still tend to get stressed, especially if the answer options are multiple choices. I have always done better answering questions that are given by explanation from memory, like writing a paragraph or answering in my own words. Choosing from multiple choices, I read too much into the test questions and tend to over think the answers, second and third guessing my first. Furthermore, my mind goes blank and anything that I know or studied, dematerialize. Once the test is over and I’ve had the chance to review the questions that were on the test and the answers that I gave, I feel foolish and upset with myself, particularly if I didn’t do well, because I know that I could have done better if I didn’t get......

.... Though the DASS can be used in an occupational setting, it can be detrimental to an individuals career path due to an employer having record of an individuals mental health on file which could cause an individual to lose their job due to an employer viewing an individual as being a risk. Though the DASS can have negative impact on an individual career, it can also be beneficial as well especially if the profession that it is being used in is a high stress job. Jobs such as those found in the various branches of the military or other government positions may require an individual to go through testing of their mental health so as to assess whether or not the individual would be capable of effectively performing their duties since an individual whom has high levels of depression, anxiety, and/or stress can prove to be hazards on the job. In an academic setting, the DASS can be effective when used with children so as to be able to see if a child is capable of handling the requirements of their educational course or if they should be given extra attention so as to better absorb the materials in which they are to learn....

Diagnostic Deception

...Diagnostic Deception In the past 10 years, the United States has been experiencing a medical epidemic of frightening proportion, taking place primarily in children. Cases of a psychiatric deficiency known as Attention Deficit Disorder, or “ADD,” have been popping up in young kids and teenagers all over the country. What’s causing this? The American Psychiatric Association, often referred to as the “APA,” claims that the disorder has always been this prevalent, but it was only recently discovered, hence the increasing number of diagnoses, but there seems to be more to this “disorder” than meets the eye. As the number of cases continues to grow, many believe that the number of people with ADD is actually unchanging, and is in fact, zero. While the APA would like you to think otherwise, ADD and ADHD are fictitious disorders. The cause for question in this conversation of the reality of Attention Deficit Disorder has many aspects. Of them, are the facts that ADD and ADHD are only recognized as psychiatric disorders in the United States of America, the suspicious timing of the entrance of these disorders into the APA’s psychiatric journal: the DSM, and the pharmaceutical industry’s role in treatment. These factors, some big, some small, build the often criticized argument against the authenticity of ADD and ADHD as mental disorders. The United States has been home to many unique and wonderful things, but rarely is any one country the sole victim of a disease, let alone...

Sarmiento 2009 – 26175 BA Communication Research 25 Nov 2011 Paper 1: Diagnostic Comm130-FRU Coke Green: The Drink That Isn’t This year saw a noisier ground for the Corporate Social Responsibility as the two legislative chambers both filed a bill institutionalizing it. Corporate Social Responsibility, as defined by the World Bank, is “the commitment of business to contribute to sustainable economic development, working with employees, their families, the local community, and society at large to improve quality of life, in ways that are both good for business and good for development.” (Petkoksi & Twose, 2003) House Bill 4575 or the “Corporate Social Responsibility Act of 2011” advanced to the final reading and had finally been approved in June, while the “Act of Institutionalizing Corporate Social Responsibility Among Large Tax Payers And Providing Incentives Therefor,” Senate Bill 1239, still finds no space of getting across the Higher House. The different fate these two bills have had parallels to their dissimilar directives. In the House Bill 4575, CSR is highly encouraged among all business enterprise, big and small alike. In the said bill, recognitions will be awarded to businesses that have outstandingly advanced CSR initiatives. Assuming a heavier, thus more disputable, take on CSR, on the other hand, the Senate Bill 1239 mandates CSR only among large tax payers. While said section seems the be...
