... understanding of the religion was altered to a better state. I believe peoples misconceptions of this religion are very common, for example Islam is associated with how followers look, automatically they are categorized as Arabic which; while Islam is often associated with Arabs, they make up only 15% of the world's Muslim population. The country with the largest population of Muslims is Indonesia (which is a non-Arab country). Muslims make up about 1/5 of the world's population (about 1.2 billion), with large numbers found in Asia (~69%), Africa (~27%), Europe/USA (~4%) and other parts of the world (factbook.net). Seven million Muslims live in the United States; approximately half of them immigrated to this country, and the remainder was born here. The Muslims now outnumber the Jews in this country. If you think about it, Islam is no more foreign to this country than Judaism or Christianity; all three of these religions have their roots in the Middle East. There are 60 countries in the world where the majority of the people are Muslim. However, there is not a single country among them that can truly be called an ‘Islamic State’; where the government and the people conduct themselves truly in accordance with the message that was given to humanity in the 7th century AD. The difference is only the degree to which each country and its inhabitants are adhering to the message and the spirit of Islam. That is why, we are reminded to strive and be righteous, and is told that God......

...Week 1 Individual Assignment ECO/365 Week 1 Individual Assignment The article that I have read for this week’s assignment was called “Why has US Oil Consumption Steadily Fallen Since 2004” The author, Gail Tverberg; suggest several reasons for the decline in gasoline sales since 2004. The author explains that she used the year 2004 as a baseline because it is the year that America could visually see the significant increases in gas and oil prices. One of the factors the author mentions is improvements in mileage and fuel efficiency on new vehicles manufactured. Another factor decreased usage because of fewer miles traveled for personal and business uses. The author suggests that the biggest reason for the decline in gas use is due to the lack of production for “Other” gas/oil products due to manufacturing material changes, and the overall decline of manufacturing in the United States. (Tverberg, 2013) The author state that between 2004 and 2012 gasoline consumption is down about 347,000 barrels a day. The author further state that of the 347,000 barrels per day 43,000 of those barrels are due to more efficiency in gas mileage on newly produced vehicles (Tverberg, 2013). Included in this figure are hybrid vehicles that use a combination alternative fuel and gasoline. The author goes on to state that outside of improved gas efficiency the majority of the decline in gas/oil usage comes from shrinkage in industrial activity. This has caused a reduction in miles...

Provide a brief explanation with each example. Refer to Ch. 1 in the text for explanations of these dimensions. Physical health: Exercise at least five days a week. Physical fitness has to be up to par to stay in the military. I usually watch my diet because I am not as young as I use to be. Social health: Right now I really do not have a social life. It might not be healthy but I guess I do it to protect myself. Having to move around a lot does not allow me to build the friendships that I am looking for. Intellectual health: Being in the military sometimes requires critical thinking to complete a mission. Many times it’s accomplishing a mission that you have already done. I usually refer back to those past missions and put together the pieces that I need to accomplish the new one. I take to account failures and successes of my past missions and use it for the current one. I also take in to account other people’s failures and successes. Environmental health: I try to surround myself with people I can learn from. At the beginning of my career I use to hang out with soldiers who were not looking to approve themselves and just got into trouble. Once my son was born, I knew the life had to change.

...1. The willingness to pay is the value that the consumer puts on the good. Every person puts a different value on everything from material things to natural resources. Having money and being able to pay for goods plays a big part in a person willingness to pay. Willingness to pay relates to demand in the way that there is a market curve for the goods that an individual is willing to pay for the goods. First you start with a high price on the good and see how many buyers will be willing to pay for that good at that price. Then you lower the price and see what happens with the consumers. Doing this you can follow the trends and see what price a good is at when a consumer’s willingness to pay is at its peak. Every consumer has a different demand curve and it depends on their wealth and what they can afford to see their willingness to pay. (Field and Field 2009) 2. There are many things to consider when it comes to the cost of manufacturing a product. To determine to cost of manufacturing you need to know the costs required for the business, in production, the cost of selling a product to determine the price and when the product is sold, was there a profit or loss. The cost of manufacturing a good include the costs of materials, equipment, labor, materials for packaging, electricity and water, transportation, promotion and advertising, management and coordination and depreciation of fixed assets.

Ilab Week 1 Assignment

...iLab week 1 Assignment Lab Report: I. Seperation of a Salt Water Solution Lab II. Introduction In this lab scenario, we were asked to determine the percentage of salt present in a saltwater solution. We are able to reach a conclusion in the lab due to certain chemical properties of water and salt. One main property is that water has a significantly lower boiling point in comparison to the salt in the mixture. III. Procedure First we obtained a 250ml beaker as well as an electronic scale in grams (g) and a Bunsen burner. After weighing the empty glass, we applied the saltwater solution and weighed the beaker again. Then we evaporated the water by placing the beaker on the Bunsen burner. Then we were able to determine the amount of salt present by weighing the beaker contents. IV. Observations and Results Contents | Mass | . Beaker (control) | 75.000g | .Beaker + mixture | 85.175g | .Beaker + salt | 75.175g | . Salt | 0.175g | .water | 10.000g | Percentage of Salt in Mixture | %1.75 | V. Discussion This, in my opinion, is a good Lab to start with. The results seem logical and the lab does a good job of demonstrating the proper application of the scientific method as well as the properties of saltwater mixtures. It also showed good basic practices to use during experimentation like the use of a control group , and measuring and recording data throughout the process VI. Conclusion The......

What are the main architectural components of a LAN? (Minimum word count: 60) The main architectural components are 1: The network's physical topography (how the nodes are connected) 2: The access method (how the nodes access the transmission medium) 3: the transmission technique (how information passes through the network) 4: the transmission media (wired or wireless) 5: the use of specific protocols (the language used to communicate between computers) 6: the LAN's inter-connectivity (how the LAN shares with other networks) 2. Describe the function and characteristics of a network operating system (NOS). (Minimum word count: 100) A network operating system (NOS) manages the resources used within the network and enebles select services to select nodes. A NOS consists of two main components: a server component and a client component. The server component is the most complex component that runs on the server. The server component can do many things, to include; manage multiple users, provide access to files and printers, provide internet access, and enforce network security protocols. The client component runs on the client machine and enables the client to participate on the network. A NOS client......

...Solving Proportions MAT222 Week 1 Assignment September 22, 2014 Solving Proportions Solving for a proportion can be used within numerous real-world problems, such as finding the population of an area. Conservationists are able to predict the population of bear’s in their area by comparing information collected from two experiments. In this problem, 50 bears in Keweenaw Peninsula were tagged and released so conservationists could estimate the bear population. One year later, the conservationist took random samples of 100 bears from the same area, proportions are able to be used in order to determine Keweenaw Peninsula’s bear population. “To estimate the size of the bear population on the Keweenaw Peninsula, conservationists captured, tagged, and released 50 bears. One year later, a random sample of 100 bears included only 2 tagged bears. What is the conservationist’s estimate of the size of the bear population (Dugolpolski, 2012)?” In order to figure the estimated population, some variables need to first be defined and explain the rules for solving proportions. The ratio of originally tagged bears to the entire population is (50/x). The ratio of recaptured tagged bears to the sample size is (2/100). 50x=2100 is how the proportion is set up and is now ready to be solved. Cross multiplication is necessary for this problem. The extremes are (100) and (50). The means are (x) and (2). 100(50)=2x New equation, and now solve for (x). 50002=2x2 Divide...

...Week 1 Assignment 1 Michael Conley ITT Technical Institute Abstract This paper will be identifying, analyzing, and explaining five likely threat/vulnerabilities for the scenario given. I will go into detail on what you should do to lower the risk or vulnerability. The last thing I will talk about in this paper is what you should do to try and make it better and more secure. There are definitely some potential risks and vulnerabilities with the given scenario. The first one to point out would be that they are using Windows Vista. Another issue is the VPN connection with the laptops. Issue number three would be the servers. The fourth problem I foresee is back up. The final problem I see in the network is with the ISP. This is not a very old and outdated OS, since Microsoft is still supporting it, but there are more vulnerabilities with using Vista as opposed to Windows 7. Windows 7 is also more versatile, it is able to be run on more than just desktops unlike Vista. Windows 7 is able to be used on laptops, desktops, and netbooks which Vista cannot be used on all of those. Windows 7 puts all of the security notifications and other system problems in one place unlike Vista where you have to search through the control panel to find things. Windows 7 you just go to the action center. The likelihood of there being a serious security issue with windows Vista is low for right now...

What are the main architectural components of a LAN? (Minimum word count: 60) The main architectural components of any LAN starts with the layout for how the nodes connect, the access method (which is how the node gain access to a transmission medium), the transmission technique (which is how the information passes through the network), transmission media (which is defined by either wired or wireless connections), the use of very specific protocols (which are sets of rules that define how the computers communicate and define the LANs interconnectivity), which then determines how the LAN shares information. 2. Describe the function and characteristics of a network operating system (NOS). (Minimum word count: 100) One of the biggest differences between a Network Operating System and a regular operating system is that unlike the OS which can run a single computer, the Network Operating System can run multiple computer on a network at once and allow the network to continue running. The Network Operating System is an essential element of the LAN that can consist of server components and a client component. The server components have multiple responsibilities that can range from managing multiple users on a network, providing access to......

Env333 Week 1 Assignment

...The three thresholds of environmental processing and documentation; Categorical Exclusion (CE), Environmental Assessment/Finding of No Significant Impact (EA/FONSI), and Draft and Final Environmental Impact Statements (DEIS and FEIS) all have distinctive levels of conditions. Projects affiliated with the federal government undergo different levels of scrutiny to determine their impacts on both the natural and human environments. Because only certain documentation is required to be circulated to the public and other federal agencies, the depth of the report coincides with the severity of the environmental impact, and every project affects the environment differently. The public should ultimately be involved in every project no matter the determination of impact on the environment; if any. The Categorical Exclusion is different from the other two thresholds in that it is a preliminary part of the decision to continue with a project. Projects that qualify are minor and do not require environmental clearance. It is also unique in that it does not have to be circulated among other agencies and public participation is not required. Projects are simply classified by predetermined categories all of which set the criteria that a proposed project must meet; if significant impact is determined the next level of documentation (EA/FONSI) is necessary. The format and content consists of the following: 1) NEPA responsibilities, 2) Guidance to applicants, 3) Major actions normally...
