May The President Wiretap Without A Warrant To Protect National Security?

The President, the one man with the most power with in the United States, the commander and chief of our country. Even though the President has such high power, they still must follow a set of rules called the Constitution. All wiretapping of American citizens by the National Security Agency requires a warrant from a three-judge court set up under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Without a warrant you are violating the Fourth Amendment. Which is the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I believe that no matter how high in power you are, you must follow our Constitution, just like citizens are supposed to follow the laws. A lot of this eavesdropping came to light during Bush’s Presidency, when he introduced the Terrorist Surveillance Program. The NSA was authorized by executive order to monitor, without search warrants, the phone calls, Internet activity, text messaging, and other communication involving any party believed by the NSA to be outside the U.S., even if the other end of the communication lies within the U.S.
However, it has been discovered that all U.S. communications have been digitally cloned by government agencies, in apparent violation of unreasonable search and seizure. The excuse given to avoid litigation was that no data hoarded would be reviewed until searching it would be legal. But no excuse has been offered the initial seizure of the data which is also illegal according to the U. S. Constitution.
After the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the Patriot Act, which granted the…...

Resistance of a Wire

...Background scientific knowledge Electricity Electricity is the movement of charge (electrons) around a circuit. The charge flows throw conductors which allow the electrons to pass through. An object which does not allow electrons to pass through is an insulator. Conductors intended to have resistance are called resistors (symbol ) Voltage- given the symbol V, measured in volts using a voltmeter Current- given the symbol I, measured in Amperes using an ammeter Metallic structure diagram Resistance Resistance is the ability to prevent or resist the flow of electrical current. Resistance occurs in an electrical circuit because of a collision between electrons and atoms, which slows the electrons down and converts some of their KE to heat energy. Resistance is measured in Ohms (Ω). Diagram Arrow shows direction of electron movement through the wire. Equation [pic] Factors which affect resistance Length of wire – this is being investigated Thickness of a wire – in a thin wire there are more possible paths for the electrons to pass through, therefore more electrons can flow through at one time, this increases the current which increases the resistance. Material of wire - wires of different densities will block more or less electrons Temperature - the vibration of warm molecules makes them more likely to collide with electrons, and resistance increases with temperature. Variables Independent- length Dependent - Voltage...

Paper on the Wire

...The Wire Paper “The Wire” was a television program that aired on HBO from 2002 – 2008. It has received 2 Emmy nominations and is a critically acclaimed program that had received very positive reviews when it was still on the air. The characters on the program, both criminal and judicial, are all well-developed, rounded characters that help to display a realistic view of life in Baltimore, Maryland. One of the criminals on the program is a man named Omar Little. Barack Obama stated that Omar Little was his favorite character on the program: “He is not my favorite person, but he’s a fascinating character– a gay gangster who only robs drug dealers and then gives back. But he’s the toughest, baddest guy on the show, and he’s gay. He’s a fascinating character” (Goldman, 2009, p. 1). After watching several episodes of The Wire, it is easy to see why people like this character, even though he is a known criminal who has committed robbery and murder several times. Omar Little is a homsexual, black male, who is seen spending time with boyfriends, yet, he goes against the gay stereotype of being sensitive, and kind, and is one of the most dangerous criminals in Baltimore. He isn’t afraid to pull the trigger of his gun, and he participates in robberies of dangerous drug lords as well as getting involved in inter-gang rivalries. He displays a passion for poetry, and for Greek mythology (shown in Season 2). For a character like Omar Little to be understood, it is important to realize...

Lead in Tap Water

... Safe Drinking Water Act in 1974 to develop regulations to control for lead in drinking water. The Lead and Copper Rule (LCR), issued in 1991, is focused on controlling corrosion within the distribution system that delivers water to customers. The Rule requires that public water systems monitor a fixed number of customer taps for lead. If more than ten percent (10%) of taps tested exceed 15 parts per billion (ppb), the system must undertake activities to control corrosivity of water, increase monitoring, educate the public, and possibly replace lead service lines within the distribution system. EPA has set this level based on the best available science which shows there is no safe level of exposure to lead, pursuant to 40 C.F.R. § 141.80. Additional information on the LCR can be found at www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Page 1 of 3 Furthermore, EPA sets an enforceable regulation called a maximum contaminant level (MCL) based on the MCLG. A program is required to minimize lead in the town of Turkey Foot’s drinking water. This regulatory program evaluates lead levels in drinking water. The treatment technique regulation for lead, pursuant to 40 C.F.R. § 141.86, requires water systems to control the corrosivity of the water. The regulation also requires systems to collect tap samples from sites served by the system that are more likely to have plumbing materials containing lead. As I mentioned previously, if more than 10% of tap water samples exceed the lead......

Resistance of a Wire

...In this experiment you will be making measurements of voltage and current for a piece of metal wire, together with the physical dimensions of the wire, from which you will calculate the resistivity of the metal. Theory The resistance R of a component in a circuit is given by the equation V = IR where V is the potential difference across the component and I is the current in the component. The resistance of a wire is given by the equation R = ρl / A where ρ is the resistivity of the metal from which the wire is made, l is the length of the wire and A is its cross-sectional area. Using the circuit below, you will make measurements of current and voltage for different lengths of wire. You will plot a graph of resistance against length and from this you will calculate the resistivity.

Ethernet Wire

...Ethernet Cabling Pin-Out On the back of each keystone jack is a two-sided connector that is labeled with similar colors. In the keystone jack we're using, the label has sets of colors labeled A and B. This refers to the two main wiring standards used in Ethernet, 568A and 568B. You can use either standard as long as you are consistent with that standard throughout your installation. Using the 568B standard, the left side of our keystone jack is labeled (from top to bottom) blue, white-blue, orange, whiteorange, and the right side is labeled green, white-green, brown, white-brown. Working from the top, place the specified color in the corresponding slots on the top row of slots on connector. Try not to untwist the wire, since the Ethernet standard requires the wires stay twisted down to the last 1/2 inch.

Wilson and the Wire

... to the lack of work and his lower seniority in the union at the ports. His frustrations with work are relevant to the structural factors mentioned in Wilson’s model. These specific structural changes impact the workers at port greatly. The key structural changes include the decline of manufacturing, de-unionization, an increase in income inequality and finally the increase of the low wage urban manual working economy in these urban. (Wilson 1996) By using the data from Poverty Rate for All Individuals by Census Tract Baltimore City – 2000, focusing on census tract 250600, indicates that the poverty rate was between 25-29%. Besides the differences in race, we can determine using this data, scenes from “The Wire” and Wilson’s theory described in When Work Disappears that the structural changes that were occurring at this time in the port neighborhoods caused an increased in unemployment and poverty. The rise in poverty and unemployment increases the amount of crime and criminal activity. In episode three Nick’s feeling of frustration and pressure increases in response to being turned down from work that day. In a conversation with Zig, (The Wire Season 2 Episode 3 – Hot Shots dialog begins at 20:18). Nick, feeling desperate for money, rants about his frustrations from lack of work and the pressures from Aimee.

Wire Extraction

...WIRE DRAWING Objective To know how copper and aluminum drawing is done, and also to understand the machine setting and how the machine operates. Introduction Wire drawing is the process by which a metal rod is forced through a series of varying cross section die(s) and hence the metal rod cross sectional area is varied so as to obtain the desired shape and size. In Kenwest cables company their are 3 wire drawing machines namely:- 1. M55 2. H20 3. M85 1.M55 This is the main copper drawing machine and the one which can handle the 1st drawing process which is hard drawing. The raw material used is usually copper rod of 7.9mm thickness as the hard drawing material. The M55 can also handle further copper drawing like the H20. Operation procedure The M55 has several units namely:- a) stand b) block c) drawing basin d) annealer e) spooler a) stand It is responsible in guiding the copper rod being fed to the block or drawing basin. If its hard drawing its fed to the block but when its further drawing its directly fed into the drawing basin. This is because at the block section the die obtained may have a larger diameter than the copper rod in the case of further drawing hence the block is not required. b) Block It is functional when hard drawing takes place. The 1st die is usually located in this section (the block section) hence drawing process begins at the block section. The copper rod being fed is usually about 7.9mm in diameter which is the...

Tap Case

...1. Analyze the ethical culture at TAP. Does the culture appear to be in alignment? Misalignment? From what I read in this case, this seem to be a culture perfectly aligned to support unethical conduct. The reward system focused only on the bottom line. Leadership did not support attempts to change the reward system. Informal norms supported illegal conduct, such as bribing physicians. There is no language and there are no systems in place to encourage ethical conduct (selection systems, rules/policies or codes, etc.). The legal counsel is thought of as the “sales prevention” department, rather than as a source to help everyone keep their conduct within the law. 2. Based on the facts in the case and what you have learned in Chapter 5, evaluate the culture change effort that Douglas Durand undertook. What cultural systems did he target in the cultural change effort? What systems were missing, if any? After attempts at simple persuasion failed, he focused his change attempt on the reward system, arguably the most important one. So, he did the right thing. And for a short time, the change had the intended effect, because people do respond to rewards. But senior management overturned his efforts. So, senior leadership support, essential to any culture change effort, was clearly missing. All other systems that we know about were aligned to support unethical conduct. So, his attempts were probably doomed from the start. He also attempted to......

Tap Water vs Bottled Water

...Bottled water Vs Tap Water? Abstract This is a repot about what is better Bottled water or tap water. This report will show that for the most part there is no difference for your health but a big difference in price. So it will show that tap water is better for the most part. What is better Bottled water or Tap Water? What is better tap water or bottled water? People spend a lot of money on bottled water so some people think it’s better, but is it? All Tap and Bottled water is different so if you really want to know get the water tested. Bottled water is less regulated than tap water. Tap water is regulated by the EPA while bottled water is regulated by the FDA. The FDA tries to meet the EPA standard. Bottled water has a loophole so if it’s sold in the state it’s made then it’s not tested.[1][4] There have been some recalls of bottled water[2] Bottled water can go bad. Some of the plastic can get into the water, if you leave it outside.[4] don’t store Bottled water in hot places. Tap water will get metals in it from pipes. So if you have bad piping you may want to buy bottled water, but bottled water might not be better its tested way less,[5] so before you change to bottled water check to see if the brand is better than the Tap. Fluoride isn’t in some Bottled water. Fluoride is really good for your teeth. One of the top medical achievements of the 21st century according to the CDC. The cost of bottle water is more than Tap water. Tap water is cents for a...

Man on Wire

...Man on Wire Imagine walking on a wire between the two of the tallest buildings in the world. This is exactly what a group of people plan to do with Philippe petit. The plan, consisted in braking into the twin towards and settle their equipment to connect both towers with a wire. Once everything was set petit, begin his journey walking on a rope thousands of feet above ground. As his journey ended, the police were waiting to punish him and his collies. Once the police got a hold of them, petit was giving a light punishment while his collies were expel from the country. In the film Man on wire, Philippe Petit and his friends plan to break into New Yorks twin towards to accomplish their dream goal. They knew it was not going to be easy, so they found ways to snick in and to get the measurement done before they accomplish something that has not been done. Petit and his friends knew that by trespassing was a sign of braking the law, but they did not had in mind that there were putting their lives at risk. For instance, what if Philippe Petit fell from the wirer or his friends fell down the building by setting down the tools they needed which will cause to hurt other people. They never saw it that way because they were too anxious to accomplish their goal. If they could break the law, why can’t I break the law the same way they did by using public space without permission? Philippe Petit and his group of friends were arrested and were given different punishments. In fact...

...2014 Annual Report March 23, 2015 To Our Stockholders: You are cordially invited to attend the annual meeting of stockholders to be held on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 9:00 a.m., central time, at the corporate office of Encore Wire Corporation located at 1329 Millwood Rd., McKinney, Texas. The purposes of the meeting are to elect directors for the ensuing year, ratify the appointment of auditors for 2015, to approve, in a non-binding advisory vote, the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers and conduct other business that may properly come before the meeting. Net sales for the year ended December 31, 2014 were $1.167 billion, while net income for the year was $37.1 million, with fully diluted net earnings per common share of $1.78. Unit volume, measured in copper pounds contained in the wire sold increased 3.6% in 2014 versus 2013. Our new aluminum building wire plant finished its second full year of operations, during which we sold $103.4 million of aluminum building wire. We believe that our ability to sell aluminum wire has resulted in increased copper wire sales as customers prefer to “one-stop shop” and order enough pounds to get free freight. Aluminum demand is so strong that we are expanding the current 200,000 square foot aluminum plant with a 250,000 square foot addition. We believe that our costs are as low, or lower, than our competitors. We believe our superior order fill rates continue to enhance our competitive position, as our...

The Small Island of Tap

...The small island of Tap, inhabited by the Tapese people, produces a single variety of corn. At the present time, each farmer produces his or her own corn, harvests it and carries it to the market for sale. On any market day in Tap, you will find many different sellers of corn. Competition between the corn sellers is very fierce-as a result, corn prices are quite low. Mega Company, the local beef producer, has announced that it wants to get into the corn business. The president of Mega Company believes that it would be more efficient to bring together all the farmers' corn at one large production facility where quality and packaging can be better controlled. Thus Mega Company acquires a license to enter into the corn industry, and begins buying all the corn from the individual farmers, packaging it, processing it and selling it in the market. The people of Tap are quite happy with the new packaging, and the uniform quality of the corn. However, the Tapese people also notice that the price of corn on the market begins to rise. Using your knowledge of market structures in microeconomics, explain the changes in the corn industry in Tap. Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas, and which clearly communicates the required message to your audience. Organize your response in a clear and logical manner as appropriate for the genre of writing. Use well-structured sentences, audience-appropriate language, and correct conventions of standard......
