THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Rationale

Modernization of living has a great impact to one of us, specifically in the field of technologythat introduces us to this, computer age because of its many benefits that makes our lives better and helps us do work a lot better.
One evidence is the excessive of use of computers of some Marian students, it gives us a faster access to the world and is very beneficial to our studies like doing paper works and at the same time, entertainment. But as computers became more popular, some students overused it and become a bad leisure for them causing them to skip their classes, they could not concentrate, and they become irresponsible, they didn’t do their school stuffs and obliviously overspending their allowance in paying a gaming computer unit and a bet.
Lessen, determine and prevent computer addiction, are in the mind of the researchers in conducting this study.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The primary aim of this study is to obtain relevant information in the involvement of the college freshmen students towards computer games. Specifically, it sought to answer the following questions:
1. What is the profile of the respondents in terms of the following factors:
1.1 Amenability of hanging with computer
1.2 Interest in computer gaming
1.3 Awareness in the possible effects of…...

Add and Its Imitators

...ADD and its imitators Lekisha Wright is a happy six-year-old little girl who started school with great enthusiasm. At school, her teacher seated her in the last row of twenty children. After two weeks of school, the teacher remarked that Lekisha was not paying attention and could not fallow directions so she decided to make the mother come for a conference. The teacher suggested the mother to take Lekisha to a doctor and see if she has ADD. Fortunately, the doctor checked first Lekisha ‘s hearing and vision and sure enough the child had a moderate hearing loss in both ears. After a treatment, Lekisha’s hearing returned to normal. (Julian Stuart Haber) The American Psychiatric Association express in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that 3%-7% of school-aged children have ADD. The department of healt and human service states that the rates of ADHD diagnosis increased by 5.5% per year from 2003 to 2007. According to Julian Stuart Habers researched, 15% of children diagnose with ADD receive medical treatment and those can drain the learning, thinking and working ability. As we can see through those facts, more and more children are diagnosed with ADD, more and more children are being treated medically. But how many of them do really have ADD? How many of them are being misdiagnosed? A study at a center for child behavior and development in St. Louis stated that more then 30% of the children diagnosed with ADD did not meet the diagnostic criteria......

...ADD was first identified and studied in the early 1900's, although it wasn't called ADD back then. After World War I, researchers noted that children who had contracted encephalitis displayed a high incidence of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and conduct disorders. And in the 1940's, some soldiers who had experienced brain injuries were found to have behavioral disorders.1 It seemed clear that brain damage could cause hyperactivity. Other forms of brain insult have since been identified as causes of hyperactivity, including exposure to lead and other environmental toxins, as well as fetal exposure to drugs and alcohol. Once brain damage was identified as a cause of hyperactivity in certain patients, researchers assumed that all hyperactivity was caused by brain damage, even when no brain damage could be identified. That's why ADD was once called "minimal brain dysfunction." This is an important point to understand. It is because of this early association of brain injury and hyperactivity that ADD traits are still assumed by many to reflect a brain disorder. Researchers made a giant leap in logic: Because brain injury can lead to hyperactivity, they believed that all hyperactivity was caused by brain injury. We now know this is not true. In fact, hyperactivity is also associated with giftedness, but obviously we cannot say that all hyperactive children are gifted any more than we can say all hyperactive children have suffered brain injury. More recent studies......

Add and Learning

...ADD and Learning ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder is a learning disorder that can be in many different forms and affect many different people. ADD can also be described as ADHD which is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. ADD and ADHD are basically the same thing, the only difference is mainly terminology. The media has used ADD more commonly when describing the disorder. However, as stated above ADD and ADHD are one in the same. (ADDA) One of the most common symptoms of ADD is distract-ability. This can mean that the person can be easily taken away from a task that they are currently doing very easily. Anything seems to distract the person. So the person goes from one task to the next without finishing the one that they were previously working on. ADD sufferers may also be very impulsive. Impulsiveness is often characterized by be tempted to do things on emotions without thinking something through. Another major symptom of ADD is hyperactivity. Hyperactivity is characterized as being abnormally active. The person is constantly moving and tends to have problems sitting still.(ADDA) The DSM-IV states that some other more common specific symptoms of ADD include not paying close attention to details and making careless mistakes. The person can also seem to not be listening when being spoken to and cannot pay attention to a certain task for more than a short amount of time. The person may seem to be excessively moving around. For instance they can......

...Title: Windows: How to manually remove a computer from the Princeton domain Synopsis: How to manually remove a computer from the Princeton domain Solution: Reasons why you should remove their Windows machine from the PRINCETON domain if you are leaving the University (for faculty, staff and all students): • Windows machines can only be joined to one domain at a time. After you leave Princeton, and you attempt to join your machine to another Windows domain, you would not be able to, unless the computer is first removed from the PRINCETON domain. Once joined to another domain other than Princeton, it becomes difficult to retrieve files or other information stored locally under your Princeton\netID domain account. • Once away from the Princeton network, your machine may at some point stop allowing you to log in with your PRINCETON windows credentials. This would additionally make it difficult to retrieve files or other information stored locally under your Princeton\netID domain account. • If you continue to attempt to log in to a domain profile and you one day forget your password, there is no way to reset that password (there is no local account associated with it). ________________________________________ Windows Manual Instructions The following is the process to manually remove your computer from the domain. Section One: Create a new user profile 1. Open the Start Menu and Right click Computer and Click Manage. 2. Expand Local Users and Groups......

Add/Adhd

...Sara Feliciano I have chosen to write my topic paper on ADD/ADHD. There is a lot of controversy surrounding this topic, the treatments that are used as well as the side effects. I found several of the other topics interesting as well but I have had personal experience with ADD/ADHD and think it would be beneficial for myself to learn more on this topic. When I was younger I was diagnosed with ADD. I was put on a daily dose of Adderall. I had reactions to this medication that I considered very bad, though could have been a lot worse. The side effect that most concerned me was that my heart rate had sped up significantly and I was constantly scared that something would seriously happen to me. I also had a minor side effect where I would constantly chew and had to have gum or I was chewing the insides of my mouth. I only took the medication for a short time because of how badly it bothered me but later I found out that there are different types of medications and I was put on the wrong one. I should have been put on the non-stimulant form rather than the stimulant. My brother was also diagnosed with ADHD when he was younger. He was also put on medications though I don’t think he was put on the same one as I. He had a different reaction, one that if I understand correctly is quite common. He completely changed while he was on it. He would do nothing. He would just sit and stare. He did have an easier time completing and focusing on schoolwork but he was not......

Situational Add

...ADD is situational: in the same individual its expression may vary greatly from one circumstance to another. There are certain classes, for example, in which the ADD child may perform remarkably well, while in others she is scattered, unproductive, and perhaps disruptive. Teachers may conclude that the child is wilfully deciding when, or when not, to buckle down and work diligently. Many children with ADD are subjected to overt disapproval and public shaming in the classroom for behaviours they do not consciously choose. These children are not purposively inattentive or disobedient. There are emotional and neurophysiological forces at play that do the actual deciding for them. We shall examine them in due course. The second nearly ubiquitous characteristic of ADD is impulsiveness of word or deed, with poorly-controlled emotional reactivity. The adult or child with ADD can barely restrain himself from interrupting others, finds it a torture awaiting his turn in all manner of activities, and will often act or speak impulsively as if aforethought had never been invented. The consequences are predictably negative. One is forever trying to shut the barn door after the horse has bolted. "I want to control myself," a 33-year old man said at his first visit to my office, "but my mind won’t let me." The impulsiveness may express itself as impulse buying, the purchase of unneeded items on a sudden whim without regard for cost or consequence. "Impulse buying?", another man exclaimed......

...Assembly Language Programming Lecture Notes Delivered by Belal Hashmi Compiled by Junaid Haroon Preface Assembly language programming develops a very basic and low level understanding of the computer. In higher level languages there is a distance between the computer and the programmer. This is because higher level languages are designed to be closer and friendlier to the programmer, thereby creating distance with the machine. This distance is covered by translators called compilers and interpreters. The aim of programming in assembly language is to bypass these intermediates and talk directly with the computer. There is a general impression that assembly language programming is a difficult chore and not everyone is capable enough to understand it. The reality is in contrast, as assembly language is a very simple subject. The wrong impression is created because it is very difficult to realize that the real computer can be so simple. Assembly language programming gives a freehand exposure to the computer and lets the programmer talk with it in its language. The only translator that remains between the programmer and the computer is there to symbolize the computer’s numeric world for the ease of remembering. To cover the practical aspects of assembly language programming, IBM PC based on Intel architecture will be used as an example. However this course will not be tied to a particular architecture as it is often done. In our view such an......

These programs form the software that prepares a computer to do a specific task, such as document production, photo editing, virus protection, file management, or Web browsing. It determines the tasks a digital device can help you accomplish. Some software helps you create documents; while other software helps you block viruses or fine-tune computer performance. The two main categories of Software System software are operating systems i.e. device drivers, utilities, and programming languages. It is designed for computer-centric tasks. For example, you would use system software to diagnose a problem with your hard disk drive or Internet connection. Application software includes music, graphics, mapping, finance, and entertainment. It is designed to help people accomplish real-world tasks. For example, you would use application software to edit a photo, write a term paper, or play a game. Music software offers many ways to work with music, sound effects, and narration from your desktop, laptop, or handheld computer. The most popular music software capabilities are as follows: download music and other sound files, play music and sound files, create playlists, transfer music to handheld devices, convert audio CDs into digital music, record music and narrations, edit volume, speed, and quality of digital recordings, crop and mix recordings, stream radio music to your computer,......

Palmares, BSIT Kevin F. Zaldarriaga, BSIT June 20, 2012 CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS SETTING A. INTRODUCTION With the rapid phase of the changing generation, the youth is now more demanding in acquiring technologies that will suit to their needs, especially when it is applied to their studies. However, many students are spending a lot of their time in social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and other social networking services while spending less time on their studies. This occurring incident aroused us to look into social networking sites and how they affect the student’s academic performance. In this study, the researchers will review how social networking sites might affect the productivity of students. Social Network is one of the reasons affecting the student’s productivity in school. Because of these, students are lacking concentration to the lectures on their subjects. Most students are not paying attention when the professor is trying to explain the lesson or giving the instruction of what to do, the students are busy browsing social networking sites, and that would end up that......
