Mark Zeigler Persuasive Essay 1 “According to news reporters, every year it’s getting warmer, these violent weather patterns, some say it’s just nature’s karma.” These lyrics from Tallahassee’s own, Dead Prez, go to show the immutable fact that “global warming” is applicable terminology for our current state of existence. I believe it is beyond our intellectual capacity to examine whether or not the weather is changing, because any rational person could do the research and understand that it is quite apparent. If Dead Prez isn’t credible enough, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, “Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal”. The only thing I can conceivable try to persuade people of, is that we are living within system a being ran by incomprehensibly short sighted and perceivably destructive people. This essay will examine the idiocracy of Republican leaders in Florida, the economic manipulation behind environmental destruction, and simple solutions to a simple problem. “I’m not scientist, man”. These are the words of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) He is also quoted saying, “I do not believe that human activity is causing the dramatic changes to our climate the way scientists are portraying it”. I think that’s pretty hysterical, given the fact that this man, who is not a scientist, was appointed a chair on the Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard. Any study of the climate since 2000, or carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere go to show how moronic this statement is. How about our governor, Rick Scott? This is a man who has ALSO does not acknowledge this blatant problem, but has the gall to ALSO say, “I’m not a scientist, but let’s talk about what we’ve done”. To me, this is all just one big messed up game. I can write a dissertation on what I think, but power mongers like these guys, at the end of the day, are the ones who are going to dictate what masses of people think. Although Florida seems to the proverbial hot bed of convection oven issues, it’s not just men like Rubio or Scott that stifle obvious hot button problems. Take another prominent Republican, Senator Ted Cruz. This man is heading up the Subcommittee on Space, Science and Competitiveness. He, along with the other buffoons he identifies with, has claimed there is not enough evidence to support climate change. I cannot comprehend, how it is not inflaming to individuals, that these “men” can honestly be considered “leaders”. The winds of change will blow, the flame of awakening will kindle and spread, and the people in power will be washed in the same fire they themselves have sparked and fueled. “Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last fish has been eaten, only after the last river has been poisoned, only then will we realize that we cannot eat money”. This Native American proverb, while not directly commenting on the Florida climate change “debate”, does serve to summarize the greed and apathy of our current leaders. It elucidates the criminality of what takes place behind the curtains. According to the Miami Herald, Governor Rick Scott backed a natural gas pipeline plan that would cost upwards of $3 billion dollars. Like all of the other conflict of interest corruption that goes on in our government, the Florida Public Service Commission unanimously approved construction of this gas-fired power plant fuel source. I mention conflict of interest because all five members of the Commission were appointed by Scott himself. There is much more to this story, but that is an essay in and of itself. Rather than trying to persuade you that our leaders can’t see past their own wallets, I implore you to look into your own governor’s portfolio, and try and reconcile those figures with his political agenda. The not so still waters of Florida’s ever-receding coastline make it exceedingly obvious that the money trail leads to the criminal. Until people wake up voluntarily, we’re all just waiting for the incinerator to do it for us. “We should not just consume hydrocarbon fuel, but use it to develop nuclear energy, hydro power, and renewable energy sources”. If something so wise could come out of the mouth of Vladimir Putin, I think it’s time we reevaluate our train of thinking. When carbon dioxide levels are the highest they’ve been in 650,000 years, it should be pretty clear that we need to adapt. Whether it be the technology of hemp, solar, wind, hydroelectric, nuclear, or even the perpetual energy generation of the Earth, as proven by Nikola Tesla, there are an abundance of ways to combat this problem. The only real problem is the fact that the hooks of the oil industry are sunk so deep into the bank accounts of our illegitimate overlords, that the proletariat are forced to languish in the heat. We need to think of our children. We need to think of our children’s children. We need to think of our mother. Not our birth mother, but arguably more important, Mother Earth. The Florida “debate” serves as a microcosm of a much bigger, but easily fixable issue. So, Cat Stevens, I do not know where the children will play if we let these demons control us any longer. Hell, at this point, I just hope to see the day where my children can step outside without being subjected to cancerous radiation or lack of solid land to stand on. “Climate change can no longer be denied. It can’t be edited out. It can’t be omitted from the conversation. And action can no longer be delayed.” President Obama made things overtly clear when he spoke at the Everglades this past Earth Day. Political figures can plead ignorance no more. This inconvenient truth must be brought to the forefront of consciousness, for if it is not, it is only a matter of time before consciousness itself becomes a thing of the past. I like to think of myself as a critically thinking human being. It is very hard for me to sit down and try to persuade people on what is literally starring them straight in the face. But I can empathize, because I was that blind man once. My issue is to stop the blind from leading the blind. Actually, rather, my issue is to stop the wolves in sheep clothing from leading the blind. Through examining the blatant disregard for facts exhibited by our “leaders”, through looking at economic and financial corruptions which withhold progressive opportunities, and through understanding that there are plenty of alternatives to molding a new, sustainable paradigm, we as humans can rise above the dark clouds of smoke, and create a clear, bright tomorrow.

Learning Log

...LEARNING LOGS or A REFLECTIVE LEARNING JOURNAL One way of developing evidence of your skills and knowledge development is to engage in the process of producing a learning log or learning journal. A learning log is basically a record or journal of your own learning. It is not necessarily a formal ‘academic’ piece of work. It is a personal record of your own learning. As such it is a document which is unique to you and cannot be ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, although there are ‘better’ and ‘worse’ ways of producing one. A learning log helps you to record, structure, think about and reflect upon, plan, develop and evidence your own learning. In the context of this module your learning needs to meet certain requirements if you are to achieve the assessment evidence criteria for your chosen skill area. What is a learning log? A learning log or journal is something that you use write down things which you may use as evidence of your own learning and skills development. It is not just a record of ‘What you have done’ but a record of what you have learnt, tried and critically reflected upon. For example in your learning log you could include details of what you did or how you did something and your reflections on this. Becoming a good self-critical reflector is not easy to do. You will probably not become a critical self reflector overnight, and it is a skill that some people seem to be able to do easily, whereas others, particularly people used to a more didactic or......

Alusaf Case

...Estimating the Elasticity of Demand for Gasoline Professor Pushan Dutt The graph below shows the evolution of the price of oil (adjusted for inflation) since 1957. Note a couple of sharp jumps and collapses in the price of oil. 1. 2. 3. 1973: : 2.75 % of global production was withheld; Prices in nominal terms jumped from $3.5 a barrel to $10 a barrel 1979: 5.68 % of global production withheld; Prices in nominal terms jumped from $15 to $32 a barrel. 2007: Oil prices increase from $60 to reach a peak of $128, followed by a rapid collapse Why do we observe such sharp swings in oil prices? The answer lies in the elasticity of demand and supply. For this exercise we will focus on the demand side and estimate the price elasticity of demand for oil. We will focus on the US and use time-series data to estimate this demand function. Here are the somewhat modest goals of the assignment: 1. To convince you that demand functions and elasticities are measurable, rather than purely abstract concepts. 2. To provide practice in manipulating and interpreting demand functions particularly constant-elasticity demand functions 3. To motivate your study of linear regression in UDJ by providing an example of an application. I will lead you through the steps without explaining the statistical methods of regression. Such methods are not part of this course but you will see them in detail in your UDJ core course. © INSEAD Step 1: Write a Model The first, and......

Sae Db Guide

...practical guide to doing dB (decibel) calculations, covering most common audio situations. You see dB numbers all the time in audio. You may understand that 3 dB is considered a just noticeable change in volume level. But, you haven't a clue how to figure out how to figure out what 24 dBm from your mixing console means to your amplifier rated for 1.4V input sensitivity. You may be aware that dB calculations involve "logs" (logarithms). Thanks to a little technology, you can do dB calculations without knowing a thing about the mathematics of logs, anti-logs, ratios, exponents, or even much about math. Unfortunately, there is no real substitute for doing these calculations, but there is a substitute for having to figure out how to do the calculations. This article figures most of that out for you. Along the way the math is explained to some extent so that you might understand what you are doing. Some of the whys about audio calculations are also explained. This guide is necessarily long in order to cover many situations where you might need to use dB. But, if you understand the calculations, you will find that most of them repeat the same things in different ways. If you begin to see this, it means you are beginning to understand how to calculate dB. INTRODUCTION First, you will need to use a scientific calculator. Your Mac computer has one that you can use. To open it from Finder, click on the “Go” menu, then select “Applications.” Locate the “Calculator”......

...is more so as it is not only just that, it’s a black spot on the companies security record and has earned quite the problem as people no longer trust the company due to just how many security issues came to light with Albert’s breach. The TJX stores were foolishly using the relatively weak Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) protocol instead of updating to the stronger Wi-Fi Protected Access (WAP) protocol, making it much easier for the breaches to occur. However, the real damage came from the fact that the intruders were able to access the TJX internal systems, being able to move around freely for almost two years. The breaches occurred from the middle of the year 2005 and ran through December 2006, while an estimated 47.5 million records were stolen during that time period. TJX’s other security problem was because they allowed the hackers free roam for pretty much 18 months, showing the company didn’t keep proper traffic logs for their system, the company being unable to find them due to the need to look through all of their systems to try and determine just who it was that took what data, from where, where it was sent, and so on. Because of this, the investigation into the matter took them months and months, giving their opposition all that time to continue messing around their database. It’s also expected that TJX might not even have saved proper logs, forcing them to search through system forensics rather than log analysis in order to figure out just whom it was that stole......

The phases are system planning and selection, system analysis, system design and implementation and operation. Since the planning and analysis phase have successfully completed, now we are continue with the next phase, which is systems design of the POS System in ARZA Coffee & Cakes. System design under System Development Life Cycle was a conversion of description of the recommended alternative solution into logical and physical specifications for the system starting from the input until the output screens consists of report, databases and computer processes. By that action the company might ease to reveals the real systems from which all the programming and system construction can be accomplish. This system could be implemented into any hardware and software since it is not tied up to any of the specific one. However, the logical design will illustrate the functions of the system in all aspects. In the physical design, the logical design will be interpret into the physical or technical specifications by convert the systems data to the structured systems design.

...University Policy Statements 2 Internationally security techniques and standards, such as ISO 17799, establish guidelines that organizations must implement in order to maintain information security. Information must be protected from those without a readily need to know to perform organizational business functions. Unauthorized access to information can have a detrimental impact on an organization from a legal and operating perspective. One of the primary preventive controls that provide an organization with many operational benefits is continuous log management policies. In addition to helping solve network security related issues, logs can be extremely beneficial in identifying unauthorized access and behaviors. Security logs assist in identifying policy violators, fraudulent behavior, real time operational problems, and provide necessary data to perform auditing, transaction back tracking and forensic analysis. In addition to the many benefits of having policies in place for continuous log analysis, standards and regulations have increased business awareness of the requirements for archiving and reviewing system logs as part of daily continuity. Some of the influential regulations that reference log management and other information security task include the following. • Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA) requires entities to ensure the development and execution of organizational processes and internal controls designed to secure......
