Diagram 1.

In the following Mika and Myself reviewed the new Asus Crosshair V Formula ZAM3. Due to the relative newness of this motherboard there are several IO connections that are not illustrated in our Diagrams. However as you can see we identified most of all the major IO ports in Diagram one and two. So let's start with what IO ports are not shown in the above Diagram. Diagram 2. Here is a representation of an RS232 Port. Simply put this is a serial data transmission / communications port. It is NOT a VGA (video) output port. It is importent to remember that older modles like the RS2323 are a twenty five pin IO where as the newer ones will be similar to the VGA nine pin. Here is a FireWire IO Port. This is a serial bus port that can reach speeds of four hundred Mbps while not loosing quality or signature of transfer. This port would mostly be used for a verity of multimedia devices or devices that are less permanent. Northbridge is known as the memory controller hub which typically handles the communications between the CPU, RAM, AGP or PCIe and Southbridge. Southbridge is responsible for the hard drive controller, IO controller, and any other integrated hardware. This could be things like sound, USB, PCI, IDE, BIOS, and Ethernet. Heat sinks are a dead give-away for the two Bridges. The Northbridge will typically be closer to the CPU and have a larger heat sink. Optical S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interconnect Format) - This IO port is used for digital audio interconnection. PS/2 - This is the mouse and/or keyboard port. It's important to know that it was developed by IBM and contains a six pin connection configuration. In addition, it is still used with most IBM compatible computers even though USB has began to replace them. USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 - The biggest difference between the two USB port is the speed the 3.0 has a top speed of 4.8 Gbps where the 2.0 has a top speed of 480 Mbps. The basic functionality of the ports are the same in being that they are a data transfer IO port. eSATA / SATA - Is a superfast IO port that delivers a transfer rate of 3Gbps. Used often times for external drives and other large data transfers. RJ-45 - This is your Ethernet / Network connection. I have seen new LAN IO ports offering speeds up to 1Gbps

Diagram 3.

We'll cover some basic auxiliary power connection in the above diagram as its represented by the four pin ATX power. However there are a couple of different configurations as to the pin layout but that basic principles are the same in providing additional power IO ports for different components. PCIe and PCI - These slot are expansion slots for adding additional hardware components such as a GPU, Network cards, and many more. In this case the motherboard does not come with an integrated video port or chip, so it would require and additional piece of equipment to view the video. CPU - Also know and the Central Processing Unit. This is where most of the computing happens in today's personal computers. There is a key note to understanding the merger between CPU's and motherboards in that most motherboards require a set parameter of CPU or type. They call this the socket type. Not every CPU can be used in every motherboard. Memory - RAM (Random Access Memory) this memory is different than the hard drive memory. This memory allows for quicker access which speeds things up but it also requires consistent power to keep the data accessible. Memory is measures by size, and as with most size values, the bigger the size the more volatile memory you will be allowed to store and access. In this case this motherboard has a maximum capacity of 32GB of Un-buffered memory.

...and prejudice to name a few. This paper will highlight a few of the terminologies and theories in this discipline also give overview to some of these afore mentioned topics. Starting with the terminology used in social psychology we look at the concept of self, it is stated in the text Introduction to Social Psychology self-concept “is the collection of things you know about yourself—such as your overall cognitive understanding (learned beliefs, attitudes, and opinions) about yourself” (Feenstra, 2011). Looking at this statement, it can be determined that the ideas learned throughout life about one’s self is a product self-concept. Self schema is what is understood and gathered from self-concept. Text defines self-schema as “organizing this information, affecting how we view the world and takes in information” (Feenstra, 2011). What are gathered from a person as far as the sports they may play, going to church and time spent with my family are all things that can attribute to ones self-concept. Self-efficacy would be the evaluation of our learned abilities to perform those particular tasks. Overall this can attribute to self-esteem which is how we see the qualities and abilities associated with ourselves. Culture as it pertains to development of the self-concept; can be a bit confusing, because the description of both independent and interdependent cultures can both fit into ones...

...Learning that Jungian Test classified my personality, as ‘ESTJ’ was probably the most interesting thing, I’ve learned thus far. Its very intriguing to read about other personalities, let alone my own. I even had my husband take the test! The description of ESTJ personality fits me like a glove. I’ve never really noticed, but I do find myself being strict to traditions and laws, and having a clear set of standards and beliefs. I expect the same of others, and I tend to find that I have no patience or understanding of individuals who do not have the same morals and standards. ESTJ personality also describes me as a social person who has a clear vision of the way things should be, and being very aggressive, typically taking leadership. I’m often told I work a crowd well and I’m always the first person to suggest a decision and go with it. My ESTJ personality type seems to coincide well with the Locus of Control results. Finding out that I have a moderate internal locus of control, and taking control of the events that affect me in my day-to-day activities. Also, I learned just how productive I can and cannot be, coinciding with how stressed I actually am. I believe you never fully realize what stage of stress you were actually at until it’s either over, or someone sits down and points it out to you. I am very productive, I tend to multitask a lot, solely because I am always pressed for time, and stressed to the max. I feel as if I cannot function properly unless I have an......

Psy211/Emotional Responses

...Why do certain foods or smells elicit emotional responses? Every person has an emotional response to one or more particular foods. The response may be negative or positive depending on the situation that may have occurred with the food present. For instance a person may perk up while smelling coffee or someone may feel nauseated by just looking at a hamburger. These reactions are conditioned responses (CR) toward conditioned stimulus’ (CS) that were previously unconditioned. A conditioned response is a learned reflexive response to a conditioned stimulus. Before someone has the reaction to perk up from the scent of coffee, they first must go through a conditioning phase to associate coffee with feeling energetic. This is also called classical conditioning: the basic learning process that involves repeatedly pairing a neutral stimulus with a response-producing stimulus until the neutral stimulus elicits the same response. The unconditioned stimulus is coffee and the unconditioned response is energy to wake up or perk up for the day. During each morning a person may groggily get out of bed and begin brewing coffee. He or she pours a cup and begin to awaken more from the ingested caffeine. If done on a constant basis that person will begin associating the tastes and smells of coffee (CS) with being energetic (CR); even though the effects of caffeine takes 20 minutes to begin working. Another conditioned response could be feeling nauseated at the sight or......

Science of Happiness

...My personal challenge with pessimistic and procrastinating habits In the lecture, we discussed about the pessimistic explanatory style and optimistic explanatory style. These two distinct explanatory styles led completely different form of results in terms of individual performances; the discussion of these explanatory styles was previously proven with various stunning statistics. In 1987, Kamen and Seligman studied on predicted grade point average for the University of Pennsylvania freshmen. Students with overachieving explanatory style have gotten greater grade point average than those of students with underachieving explanatory style (Kamen and Seligman, presented in lecture). Intrigued by the information, I investigated my own problematic explanatory style and related negative results. I hope to identify my own behaviors, feelings, thoughts, and changes in both psychological and neurological perspectives. As my graduation-time comes closer, I had to make a big decision of my life. It was my life changing decision of whether I stay in the United States or go back in my home country. Frankly, I have already made a decision to go back to South Korea a while ago. Yet, I was often confused and nervous about the decision that I have made because of my explanatory style. Since I do not have a plan other than preparing for a graduate school from the moment I leave the school, I know it would be better for me to have optimistic beliefs constantly reminding myself, “I will be......

Communication Skills

...I have always been a capable communicator when it comes to my work but when it comes to my personal life I am not so good. The approach I use at work being straight forward and to the point is not so good at home when communicating with my wife. She tells me all the time that I need to think before I say it. I am very good with employees by listing to them and communicating my instructions to get a job done. I tend to communicate with a blunt and to the point approach with a clear approach when at work. I have found that employees want to know what the message is and not to beat around the bush. When being direct all the time it is hard to switch that off when you’re at home. When it comes to e-mails I have made an effort to soften my tone and choose of words. I have tried to step back and ask myself if I would get upset if someone sent me that e-mail. I do not send e-mails when I am upset if I do have to send a tough e-mail I will write the e-mail and set on it for a while and come back to it before hitting send. Problem-Solving Skills: Score 56 This assessment surprised me; I have always felt I have been confident in my problem solving skills. When I was a production manager I was able to resolve an issue quickly and with good results. You learn in the automotive industry you have to be quick on your feet when there are issues. You have to act now or production lines stop. That would be a reason I tend to jump to solutions. I have taken a field assignment with my......

...Journal of Abnormal Psychology 1978, Vol. 87, No. 1, 49-74 Learned Helplessness in Humans: Critique and Reformulation Lyn Y. Abramson and Martin E. P. Seligman University of Pennsylvania John D. Teasdale Oxford University, England The learned helplessness hypothesis is criticized and reformulated. The old hypothesis, when applied to learned helplessness in humans, has two major problems: (a) It does not distinguish between cases in which outcomes are uncontrollable for all people and cases in which they are uncontrollable only for some people (univervsal vs. personal helplessness), and (b) it does not explain when helplessness is general and when specific, or when chronic and when acute. A reformulation based on a revision of attribution theory is proposed to resolve these inadequacies. According to the reformulation, once people perceive noncontingency, they attribute their helplessness to a cause. This cause can be stable or unstable, global or specific, and internal or external. The attribution chosen influences whether expectation of future helplessness will be chronic or acute, broad or narrow, and whether helplessness will lower self-esteem or not. The implications of this reformulation of human helplessness for the learned helplessness model of depression are outlined. Over the past 10 years a large number of experiments have shown that a variety of organisms exposed to uncontrollable events often exhibit subsequent disruption of behavior (see Maier &......

Case Brief

...free of the mooring lines because of this readjustment. It hit a tanker and its propeller broke a hole in the barge. It lurched, dumped her cargo and sank. P’s cargo could have been saved if somebody was on board but the bargee was absent since the last evening. P sued D for negligence. Procedural History- Appellant sought review of the U.S. District Court’s Judgment who held them partly liable for the damages caused by the sinking of the barge as well as the cargo. The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the decision and apportioned the damages Issue- Who is held negligent and liable to pay the damages for the loss? Judgment- Appellant was held liable for the damages as the barge was left unattended during the working hours. Judge Learned Hand separated the damages into two parts: the Collision Damages which was caused when Anna C collided with the tanker in this one half damages was put on Grace Line Inc and the other half was put on Carroll Towing Co and the Sinking Damages which was caused when Anna C and the Cargo sank in this one third damages was put on each three i.e. Carroll Towing Company, Grace Line Inc. and Conners Marine Co. Rationale- Judge Hand asserted that there is no general rule to determine when the barge owner will be liable if it breaks away the mooring line without the bargee onboard. So he laid out three factors to...

United States V. Carroll Towing Co

...This court case deals with the sinking of the barge, ‘Anna C,’ which took place on January 4, 1944. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company chartered the Anna C at Conners Marine Company in the New York Harbor at Pier 52. Grace Line, Inc., the charterer of the tug, ‘Carroll,’ was sent to move a barge from the adjacent pier, from which the Anna C was tied to. In the process of moving the barge, the lines between the barges at Pier 52 and the Public Pier were removed. To get to the barge, Carroll’s crew had to adjust the line on the pier. Because the line was not properly adjusted by the crew members, some of the barges broke away from the pier. At the time of this occurrence, there were no crew members on the barge of the Anna C; therefore, no one realized the condition of the barge. The Carroll Towing Company tug negligently caused the Anna C to break free and drift down the pier, causing it to hit a tanker’s propeller, which caused a hole on the side of the Anna C. Since there were no crew members aboard the Anna C, no one noticed that it was slowly sinking. The contents of the Anna C, which was flour owned by the United States, sunk in the incident at Pier 52. If any of the crew members had realized the condition of the barge, the Anna C could have been saved, along with the contents. The sinking of the barge results of two concurrent causes, as stated in the case: a misadjusted mooring line and an unattended barge. The question of the case concerns the responsibility for the......

Jensen Shoes: Lyndon Brooks’ Story

...Analysis for Case 2 Jensen Shoes: Lyndon Brooks’ Story Are self-evaluations being hurt? Yes. This case gives us indications that Lyndon had negative core self-evaluations which are explained below: a. Self-esteem: Although not happy with this first assignment he decided to take it up so that it helped him broaden his background and move up in job roles by showing credibility. But he could not complete all his assignments in time. He was later told by Chuck that he would be moved to Strategic Product Marketing and would be reporting to Jane Kravitz as part of reorganizing. Lyndon took this change as the effect of his under-performance and had a feeling of being demoted. This looked like it hit his self-esteem as it gave him feeling of failing in his work and now he had to report to Jane while he himself was in line management before. b. Self-efficacy: In his first project he did believe in his capabilities to take on the project, but when he could not complete it, his work was not well appreciated by Chuck and was also moved to another project. This demotivated him and let him down. He thought he had failed. When he was again assigned the same market in his 2nd project he thought he will fail again in this project and his lack of knowledge of this market will add into the issue. He now did not have confidence in his capabilities and wanted to remain in his comfort zone of line management. c. Locus of control: He seems to display external locus of control as he......

Lesson Learned

...Abigail Ross Professor Jenkins English 111 28 January 2015 Lesson Learned Being in high school, students feel they are grown and can do anything without getting caught. By the time I was in eleventh grade, I thought I could go and come as I pleased without any consequences. I felt telling my mom a small lie wouldn’t harm anything, but I was dead wrong. Something so small turned into something so horrible. I was in eleventh grade, and I was studying for final exams coming up the next day. However, I really wanted to get a break and go see my friend Marquesha from school. So I asked my mom could I go to my dad’s house because I knew she wouldn’t let me go to my friend’s house. She knew I really needed to be studying for my exams. So she said yes, I could go to my dad’s house but I could only be gone for an hour. I happily left the house thinking I had fooled my mother. Not checking time regularly I lost track of it and was gone longer than an hour. Being that I was gone longer then the allotted time, my mother begin to get worried because she hasn’t heard from me and I wasn’t home yet. So my worried mother called my dad and asked where I was and that’s where it all started; I got caught. I never thought I would get caught but little did I know I would lose track of time. I got caught because I lost track of time and didn’t answer my phone when my mother called me. So she called my dad’s, where I was supposed to be, but he broke the news to her that I......

Lessons Learned

...LESSONS LEARNED The name of the article I chose is Lessons Learned from a Civilian Rescue. The article tells of a Cobb County, Georgia Fire and Rescue that is dispatched to a report of home fire. The report given is pretty vague, as the emergency call consists of, “my house is on fire”, nothing more; nothing less. When the fire service arrived the search crew members were in store for a greater encounter than what they imagined, and more importantly what they had trained for. This article supports the course material, in ways that in chapter 8, it talks about ways to negate public panic. Although this article depicts the story of a search member, they were placed in an environment that could’ve excited panic within the crew and could’ve led to a deadly rescue attempt for the civilian, and well as members of the crew. In chapters 6 and 7, the course materials cover the importance of continuous training on all facets of fire safety. As this relates to the search and fire crew members, when the rescue crew discovered a 240lb male unconscious inside the burning home, they quickly realized that he wasn’t as easily removed from a burning structure of high heat and low visibility as the training dummies with handles were, especially while they themselves were in full gear. A real life body, as the crew member explained, was like trying lift a, “240lb slippery noodle“. Due to the continuous training the crew members received, they did not panic as even after their first......
