Video Conference

Last Wednesday video conference was very interesting, we had to meet at UNIBE in order to have a live video chat, in the conference there were other students present, for example the FIU students. It was very interesting because we had many topics to discussed in which I was very interested in because they are goanna help me in my future. Whether that I decide to open a business or work for someone, because one of the topics where business startups. We also discussed about taxes, corruption and globalization.
The conference went very smoothly because the way the conference was structured was that the UNIBE students gave an opinion and also the FIU students gave another opinion, so we can see in what things we were related and in which we weren’t, with these opinions that we gave we can see how culture affects the way each people should do business depending on where they are.
We also agreed that corruption is everywhere. In order to stop corruption we agreed that more regulations had to be created within the governments institutions in order to supervise high or corrupt government officials. An open question was also done with the two parties that where in conference which was; “Does corruption affect a business?” we both agreed that it does affect tit because corruption may affect small business or startups, it may not give them the opportunity to have a competitive market with others in their industry.
It was a very good experience of having this video conference, personally I have never been a part of a video conference before in my life, and I saw how enriching it could be for students and people who do business with others around the world.

...Name Professor Course Date Topic: Non promotion of violence in Video games in the US Specific purpose: I want to actuate you to oppose promotion of violence in video games. Thesis: Violence in video games should not be promoted because generally violence has a negative influence on a person’s mental thoughts and once a person has such thoughts they are likely to fall victims of violence prior to what they see or do during playing the violent video games. Introduction: How many of you have played Carmageddon-1997, Soldiers of fortune-2000 or related video games? And what effect have they had on you? I know it is hard to point out what effect such video games have had on you but today I am here to tell you the effects of such violent video games and in turn oppose the promotion of violence in video games. First reason why violence should not be promoted in video games is because they increase a person’s aggressive thoughts, feelings and behavior. This comes about when the brain becomes less responsive and in turn leads to increased aggression. Likewise when playing violent video games we tend to identify with the aggressors in the video game and this makes us mimic their characters even when not playing them and this leads to change of behavior and moral practices (Gruffiths 102). The second reason is that violent video games led to most youth deliquescent. Research from Lowa state research has shown that most criminal acts done by youths have a direct relationship to the type...

Video Conferencing

...Date: August 28, 2011 To: Pat Caring, Chairperson of the Board of Directors From: Sharie Evans, Director of Communications Subject: Video Conferencing and our Expanding Business Video conferencing is becoming the norm for business communication. Our technology systems are advanced and our need for communication is great. As we expand our business, we become aware of the need to improve our communications systems. We have all used tele-conferencing for communicating when immediate access to a particular person(s) is needed but have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to see and speak at the same time to that individual? Instead of trying to explain a complicated matter verbally over the phone, what would the reality of showing them be like instead? Incorporating a video conferencing system into our daily business endeavours would bring all our offices throughout Canada as close as humanly possible without ever having to leave the comfort of the office (Tredent, 2011). Here is an overview highlighting the benefits of introducing video conferencing into our corporation. Benefits of video conferencing There are many benefits of video conferencing that affect the business and the employee/employer relationship.

Video Games

...“I recently learned something quite interesting about video games. Many young people have developed incredible hand, eye, and brain coordination in playing these games. The air force believes these kids will be our outstanding pilots should they fly our jets.”(Ronald Reagan, speech, Aug. 8, 1983) There are many advantages of playing video games: good hand-eye coordination, the opportunity to meet other people from around the world, and increased memory. The first advantage to playing video games is having good hand-eye coordination. I have been playing video games for a long time. I stared to play video games when I was about six years old. When I started playing video games I used hand-held devices, like the game boy color and game boy advance. I am now very good with my hands. My grandparents would buy me Lego kits and I would have built them within minutes. I am able to build things faster. I am able to build computers that require precise placement. It has lead me to taking computer courses at Bay College. Another advantage to playing video games is that you can meet other people. Since I have been playing video games I have been able to get to know people from around the world the share the same interest in game as I do. A game type that has let me get to know these people is the MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game). A couple games that are this type are World of Warcraft and Rift. A friend that I have met through playing video games is Edwin. I...

...Video Case: Constraint Management at Southwest Airlines Question 1: Analyze Southwest’s passenger boarding process using the Theory of Constraints. Southwest Airlines is an airline company that has set industry benchmarks of having the best turnaround ratios, in an industry where lead time during different operations is very time consuming. Southwest currently boasts a rapid gate-turnaround of 25 minutes or less, and it demonstrates how attention to activities pertaining to ground operations (including cleaning of the aircraft, fuelling and flight preparation) can help the company in being so operationally efficient. Customers rave about low fares, exceptional customer service, and the biggest competitive advantage that Southwest has over its competitors is its’ ability to have a lack of assigned seating that allows customers to choose where they can sit on the plane. Having a turnaround of 25 minutes or less brings about potential areas of bottlenecks; for instance if wheelchair assistance is required for passengers, a bottleneck might arise that may hinder the turnaround time of 25 minutes. Hence, operations managers at Southwest need to carefully evaluate the current processes in order to achieve better efficiency and reach turnaround times even lower than 25 minutes. The Theory of Constraints is a systematic management approach that focuses on actively managing those constraints that impede a firm’s progress towards its goal. Southwest Airlines currently wants to make...

...Violence in Video Games There has been a debate for years on whether or not violence in video games cause behavioral problems in kids. In this Essay we are going to attempt to take a look at this debate and try to find out once and for all which side has the more legitimate case. The debate over this issue spans back more than two decades and with technology improving leaps and bounds over the past ten years games have become more realistic and violent. In a study in 2013 Doctors Christopher Ferguson and Cheryl Olson discovered violent video games such as Grand Theft Auto, HALO, and Mortal Combat did not cause High Risk Teens those with depression or an attention disorder to become more aggressive or delinquents (Nauert). In fact this study did show a slight calming effect on children with attention disorders. It also showed that it helped calm aggression in those high risk teens as well. This study was important because it goes against the belief that violent games have an effect on teens to become more violent and act out it shows that Societal Violence plays a bigger part on the influence of kids than video games do (Nauert). Ferguson and Olson studied 377 teens with an average age of thirteen from all different backgrounds and economic circumstances. Ferguson goes on records as saying “Statistically speaking, it would actually be more unusual if a youth delinquent or shooter did not play violent video games, given that the majority of youth and young men play such...

Video Summary

...Video 1.07 talked about different ports and connections on a computer motherboard or integrated card. Serial ports are male and have 9 to 25 connector pins. Parallel ports are female and have 25 connector pins. Serial connections send information one bit at a time while parallel connections send information 8 bits at a time. Game ports are female and contain 15 pins in 2 rows. Modern mouse and keyboard connections are PS/2, USB, or wireless. NIC connections convert parallel communication to serial and use an RJ-45 connector. A modem connection uses an RJ-11 connector and converts analog signals to digital signal and back. There are three types of video connections: VGA, DVI, and S-video. USB, or Universal Serial Bus, is hot-swappable, which means you can plug it into the computer while it is running and it will automatically configure without having to reboot. There are two types of SCSI connections: Narrow SCSI which is Type A with 50 pins, and Wide SCSI, which is Type P with 68 pins. IEEE 1394 or Firewire is Serial, fast, hot-swappable, and is used for streaming media. Last there is Multimedia which consists of your microphone, speaker, and earphone jacks.

Video Paragraphs

...2015.02.04 Underwater astonishments The message of the video is let people know how the fishes change their skins’ color and pattern when they want to hide in somewhere. The speaker uses different videos that shot the skin changing times of different types of fishes, the video also make the slow motion for the changing time of the fishes’ skin so that the audience can clearly see how amazing the changing is. In my opinion, those kind of abilities of the creature in the sea is very amazing. I also think people should pay more attention to the nature things; we should discover more interesting and fantastic things that nature created. Future Proof The video shows the dance movements of three people, which are one male and two female. The view of the movie is just black with some stars, but the film also is added different types of computer graphic effects. The effect of combination of people and technologies is perfect and impressive. The director might want to demonstrate the importance of technology for modern human life through this movie. In my opinion, the film illustrate people cannot live without technologies. To make the film different and prolific, the film also includes some different elements, such as love, angry, and pain. I think people also can see the video as a film that describes a love story. Howl The video describes a queer story, which is about a mother with a child. The strange thing is the actions of the boy are like a wolf. For example, the...

...Unit 3 Assignment 1: Video Summary 1 2) Video one talks mostly about ports and the different kinds of ports that are used in computers today. It also covers what a modem is, its uses, and its speed. Video one teaches us what the difference of a wide SCSI and a narrow SCSI. The video shows all the different ports with all their pins and tells us whether they are male or female. One thing I have definitely learned from this video is what USB stands for and what it actually is. I also learned the difference between USB 1 and USB 2. Video two had a lot to do with computer displays and the different types of screens. In video two I learned the difference between a CRT display and a LCD display, it also talks about what is in both of them. It then goes into the contrast ratio and how the bigger the ratio, the better the video or the display is going to be. I always saw resolutions in my computer but I never knew what they stood for. I now know the standard resolutions and how they work. The video also talks about the video card and if you were building a computer how to know which video card would be worth buying. Video 3 goes into depth about printers and the three most common printers today. It talks about the differences between Dot Matrix, Inkjet, and Laser printers. Since Laser printers are very different from the other two, it went into further depth of the laser printer. The video teaches us multiple ways of how a laser printer can be cleaned. It also tells us...

How important is this transition to Original Penguin’s success as a learning organization? Explain. - It is important to delegate more decisions to others because the free flow of information is the key to the rejuvenation of Original Penguin. This is to make sure that communication with the team is at its highest peak; thus, it must be clear to every employee the goals and needs of the company. 2. Do you think Kolbe views knowledge among his employees as an important resource? Why or why not? - Yes, because Kolbe relies on the collaboration and communication among his team members. Kolbe firmly believes in empowering employees with freedom and resources to initiate their own ideas, make their own decisions, and perform their best. Kolbe also stated that “If you have a team, you have to give ownership of what they do.” He views knowledge among his employees as an important resource because he makes them feel comfortable and secure and make them feel that he wanted them. 3. What steps might Original Penguin as a company take ensure the satisfaction of its employees? - The company must give credits to the accomplishments of the employees by acknowledging their efforts and by giving them rewards or something.

Video Reflection

...Amanda Smith Andrea Sampson ECE 140 – 2697 Video Reflection #1 This particular video discussed how teachers can manage the flow of traffic in their classroom by effectively arranging the furniture in the classroom. Managing the flow of traffic in the classroom is just as important as selecting the needed materials. I have been working in a preschool classroom as an aide since 2009, and this was the first year I was able to give input on placement of the furniture in the classroom. During the summer, I provided the teacher with a general layout of the furniture and the reasoning for the placement of the centers, desks and other furniture. The classroom is free from clutter, the centers are grouped together by active and quiet areas, and the children are provided with a wide variety of toys, manipulatives, books and puzzles. Each center is labeled and the children are assigned a particular center and rotate throughout the centers during the week. Actually, not only are the centers labeled by area but the furniture is labeled with words to help with word recognition. Although this video did not provide me with any new information; it did confirm that the classroom is properly setup to manage the traffic flow. I have had a few years of experience in the classroom and although I was not taught “management of traffic” I have found that I have already been executing and effective traffic pattern in the classroom. The one thing that was suggested to the principal was replacing......
