Data governance (DG) refers to the overall management of the availability, usability, integrity, and security of the data employed in an enterprise. Data Governance practices provide the framework for maintaining company’s investment in their data management activities (MDM, Data Profiling and Data Quality, and Metadata Management). Data Governance provides a mechanism to rationalize and control organization’s collection, storage, analyses and dissemination of its data. Most companies accomplish Data Governance by:

* Defining data standards
* Creating programs consisting of a governing council, personnel, procedures, and plans to execute data governance policies
* Establishing auditing practices to monitor and report on the integrity of data governance activities
For many companies, their intellectual property can often be more valuable than their physical assets. Having an effective IT governance strategy in place can protect this intellectual property, reducing the risk of theft and infringement. Data protection, privacy and breach regulations, computer misuse around investigatory powers are part of a complex and often competing range of requirements to which directors must respond. There is increasingly the need for an overarching information security framework that can provide context and coherence to compliance activity worldwide. IT Governance is a key resource for forward-thinking managers and executives at all levels, enabling them to understand how decisions about information technology in the organization should be made and monitored, and, in particular, how information security risks are best dealt with. The development of IT governance - which recognizes the convergence between business practice and IT management - makes it essential for managers at all levels, and in organizations of all sizes, to understand how best to deal with information…...

...Abstract E-government is increasingly becoming a fundamental tool for enhancing public administration. This paper discusses e-government’s implications on public policy formulation and implementation in Kenya. In addition, the challenges of adopting technology and organizational change are examined. Research conducted outside Sub-Saharan Africa showed that information and communication technologies (ICTs) have the potential to enhance efficiency, policy effectiveness, citizens’ participation, and democratic values. Based on the concept of democratic values, the paper explores how e-government impacts the political agenda, rule making, and public service delivery. The central argument is that e-government is not only a tool or platform that enhances delivery of public services but also has the potential to reform the way policies are formulated and implemented in terms of efficiency, accountability, transparency, and citizens’ participation. The Key findings show that the Kenyan government has failed in disseminating information about e-government, sensitizing Kenyans on how to make use of technology to access government services, and providing incentives to encourage use of technology. Hence despite the advantages touted globally for implementing e-government, literature showed no evidence that any of the Kenyan e-government’s objectives: enhancing delivery of public services, improving information flow to citizens, promoting productivity among public servants, and...

...Art in the Romantic Age * Henry Fuseli (1741-1825) is known as one of the Masters of Gothic Romanticism. I ranked him above all in this period of time when it comes to art. His paintings told dark stories but with a hint of light with an angelic figure standing by or watching the scene unnoticed it seems by the character the story is about. * William Blake (1757-1827) is another known as a Master of Gothic Romanticism. His paintings were about death and despair with little light ahead just like Henry Fuseli. But both have paved the way for future artists and in musical artists to let out their anguish and hatred of the world as they see it into their works. Music in the Romantic Age * Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) is still the greatest composer who has ever lived. His works for symphony orchestra include nine symphonies, and about a dozen pieces of "occasional" music. He wrote seven concerti for one or more soloists and orchestra, as well as four shorter works that include soloists accompanied by orchestra. His only opera is Fidelio. Most of his works today are being played in music classes, operas, orchestra concerts, and plays alike. * Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist of French-Polish background. He is considered one of the great masters of Romantic music. Chopin invented the instrumental ballade and made major innovations to the piano sonata, mazurka, and the waltz. Just like Beethoven, Chopin’s music has...

...The School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act (S.1884 and H.R 3627) is a bill that will inspire states to enact laws that will permit schools to keep stock epinephrine (epipen) in the school medicine cabinet. The epinephrine will not be prescribed for any particular student and will be readily available for any student having anaphylaxis. The bill will also allow school staff to administer epinephrine without any liability. Moreover, any school that adopts this legislation will be given preferences when applying for asthma related government grants from health and human resources department (TheHill.com, 2012). Just recently, a first grader, Amarria Johnson of Virginia State died after experiencing an episode of anaphylaxis from eating peanut. Her death could have been prevented, but the school had no epinephrine on hand to save her life(TheHill.com,2012).According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (2011),the delay in using epinephrine is closely associated with death from anaphylaxis,expecially anaphylaxis resulting from peanuts allergy (niaid,2011).Symptoms of anaphylaxis include itching ,swelling of lips and tongue, tightness of throat, skin hives, vomiting, diarrhea ,cramps, shortness of breath, cough, wheezing, weak pulse, dizziness and passing out (niaid,2011). According to Gregory Nancy (July 2012), about eight percent of American children are affected by allergies. Six million children have food allergy and about forty percent of...

...Childhood and education: changes and challenges Dr Nick Lee Institute of Education, University of Warwick February 2009 Summary The first section of this paper will describe the child-centred social investment thesis developed by Esping Andersen (2002). This thesis has been a strong influence on UK government educational and child-related policy over the last decade. Some of the resulting current UK policies will be examined, and their success or failure so far will be explored. It is crucial to note that these policies involve the increasing integration of health, welfare and educational resources in the common purpose of increasing children’s social and cognitive capital. This survey will reveal the key trends and drivers that policy makers are currently responding to as they shape children’s lives. Given that steps taken today may well have effects lasting decades, the guiding social, technical and economic assumptions currently made about the future need to be identified and critically examined. Section Two will set these assumptions in the context of major global trends and signals including issues of demographic change in less and least developed world regions, climate change, energy and food security and financial conditions. The key question here will be whether the bases of current policies address the range of possible futures of yesterday or the range of possible futures of today. Section Three will draw on this material to compose a set of issues that are...

...BROTHER® MOBILE PRINTERS TELECOM CASE STUDY P-touch® Commercial Labeling Solution Helps Major Telecom Company’s Customers Stay Connected Proper Labeling Communicates Professionalism, Helps Eliminate Mistakes and Service Calls One of the country’s leading providers of voice and data communications had long recognized the benefits of proper labeling and has practiced some form of labeling for many years. According to a senior field service engineer with the company, “we used a typical handheld labeler and typed in information we felt relevant to the application, but often forgot to include something (like the service number to call) or there was inconsistency in the format, making some labels difficult to read.” They tried preprinting their labels, but this presented problems with custom data, and there were so many different applications that it became impractical to preprint so many kinds of labels – not to mention the impossible task to manage the inventory for hundreds of installers all over the country. Handwritten labels solve some of these problems, but they are time consuming as each field service technician struggles to print legibly. Labeling is a thumbprint of professionalism and the company was determined to find a labeling solution that meets their requirements. The company made organization changes, including a new corporate logo which provided an opportune time to identify and standardize on a better labeling solution for the company. Since this group...

...Insurance for All: A Dream Come True Medical coverage in Africa is very low. Worst still, the underprivileged are excluded even from this very low coverage. For our dream to transform Africa into an island of prosperity to become reality, a number of initiatives such as providing medical coverage for the poor are necessary. This can be possible through the MC²s, which are actually rural development micro-banks whose mission is to drive the economic growth of the underprivileged, and because the underlying principle of the MC² approach is the pooling together of a community’s material and intellectual resources to promote its welfare. For the purpose of better understanding it is necessary to define micro-insurance and mutual association. A Mutual Association can be defined as “a not-for-profit-making and non compulsory association of people driven by solidarity and who through their contributions and by their democratic decisions undertake provident funding and mutual help to cover themselves against social risk.” Micro-insurance is a form of insurance requiring very low premiums from subscribers and whose objective is the optimum satisfaction of personal needs. Principles of A Mutual Association To achieve our objective to provide medical coverage to low and very low income people, we rely on the principle of collecting small amounts from every community member to ensure optimum satisfaction for the individual and the community as a...

...25 Ideas To Improve Your Workplace by ADL Associate Barbara Glanz, CSP Study after study has shown that what workers want from their jobs in the year 2000 is not better benefits or more money. Rather, it is the small things that make workers feel commitment to an organization. One study shows the top three things workers want are interesting work, full appreciation for the work they do, and a feeling of being in on things . Baxter Labs recently did a global study in which they asked their employees worldwide what they could do to make things better for them. The resounding answer was that employees wanted to be "respected as whole human beings with a life outside of work." What seems critical, then, in workplaces today is for leaders to respond to workers as HUMAN BEINGS and to foster an atmosphere that is inclusive, caring, creative, appreciative and joyful. People are looking for a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in their work, and above all, they want to be respected and valued. In my book CARE Packages for the Workplace-Dozens of Little Things You Can Do to Regenerate Spirit at Work (McGraw-Hill 1996), I have used the acronym CARE as the elements of a spirited workplace: C = Creative Communication A = Atmosphere and Appreciation for All R = Respect and Reason for Being E = Empathy and Enthusiasm In each of the chapters I have included dozens of mostly no-cost or low cost ideas which can be implemented almost immediately in today's workplaces to engender a...

...Past Paper – Drama 10) Briefly outline and justify your casting decisions for Lord and Lady Windermere and then discuss how you would direct your actors in at least two scenes where they appear together, in order to reveal how their relationship changes in the course of the play. I would categorise Oscar Wilde’s ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’ as a satirical comedy. In the play Wilde criticises the hypocrisy and snobbery of the upper classes in 1890’s Britain. My intended performance style as a director would be a form of heightened naturalism, and I would aim to elicit a sympathetic response to Lady Windermere as a character, who is a victim within the society she lives. In the play, the relationship between Lord and Lady Windermere fluctuates from a devoted, faithful one, to one of doubt and mistrust. Ultimately, Lady Windermere returns to Lord Windermere after finding that claims of his infidelity are untrue. The play is resolved with the two embraced and devoted to each other once more, however there is an element of dissatisfaction for the audience as many questions are left unanswered and neither partner is wholly honest with the other. In 1890’s upper class British society, men would be entirely dominant and the role of the woman would be largely as a mother and homemaker. In order to represent this dominance aesthetically, I would cast Lord Windermere as a tall, stern man of strong build in contrast to a petite, elegant but fragile Lady Windermere. In my interpretation...

...Deferred tax is an accounting concept, meaning a future tax liability or asset, resulting from temporary differences between book (accounting) value of assets and liabilities and their tax value, or differences between the recognition of gains and losses in financial statements and their recognition in a tax computation (FASB). Deferred tax is important in understanding the financial situation of a company’s operation because it provides a more accurate calculation of accrual earnings and accurate measure of the equity position, and moderates earning by increasing the tax liability in good years and decreasing the tax liability in bad years (Todd A. Doehring). Generally, deferred tax could be deferred tax assets or deferred tax liability and a temporary difference can be either a deductible or a taxable temporary. Deferred tax assets are the deductible amounts from taxes in the future of a business. The causes of deferred tax assets include differences caused by recognizing expenses earlier in GAAP income statement and recognizing revenues earlier in the tax returns. These differences include recognition of accrued expenses in the GAAP financial statements such as rent, utility and salaries. Recognized losses which arise due to fair value or the calculation of inventory by lower of cost or market value in the shareholders’ income statement also cause differences in income tax expense and tax payable. The recognition of advance revenues received in the tax returns and not in...
