I am really not fear about math, I am surprised how math, in the history helped and help everywhere to discovery.

The interaction within this setting makes up a significant portion of your grade for this course. For each of the two graded forums, the instructor will provide you with a thought-provoking topic that will help start your online discussion.  Each forum is completed in two parts over the course of two weeks. In the first week of the forum, you will post a new thread that directly addresses the prompt provided by the instructor. In the subsequent week, you will post two meaningful replies to at least two classmates’ threads. Thus, for each forum you are required to post a minimum of 3 times: 1 thread and 2 replies. The instructor will observe online discussions throughout the assigned weeks and may interject his or her comments intermittently. Feel free to respond to the instructor's comments in addition to the required replies to your classmates' postings. Follow the guidelines provided below as you complete each part of the forums.

Phase 3 Discussion Board

...Phase 3 Discussion Board EM208-1201A-08 Web Development I Colorado Technical University The software tool I chosen for this discussion is FrontPage2003. This website design tool not only allows you to design but also manage your files. You can add delete and rename as well as move files around. It allows you to fix problems with broken hyperlinks by running special reports. It will also allow you to publish a Web Site. Unlike other Website creation tools FrontPage stores all the files in hidden folders called metadata. This information allows FrontPage to function. They are hidden so they cannot be deleted or changed by accident. When Windows Explorer is set up to show hidden files you can see the metadata folders. There are two major types of folders one named _vti_cnf. This folder contains information about every file including the links to other files. The other file is _vti_pvt folder that contains all the configuration information for the web site its sub sites and the permissions information. One of the major advantages to using FrontPage is its ability to work in conjunction with other Microsoft products like EXCEL, POWERPOINT, and Word. FrontPage is great for web sites using a lot of text. It does a little bit of everything because it has embedded HTML editors. The major advantage of Microsoft FrontPage is found in the site management tools. You can do things like verify links and replace content easily, especially helpful when managing large websites.

Untrained employees drop an 70-year-old A 70-year-old patient of a local hospital broke her leg after being dropped by an untrained, inexperienced, unsupervised employee in what should have been a routine transfer from the toilet to the wheelchair and back to her bed. http://www.sandiegoaccidentinjurylawyer.com/lawyer-attorney-1279341.html 2. Feeding Tube Misplacement An 85-year-old man died in a local hospital after a nurse tried to change his feeding tube. The nurse did not check the chart to find that the man already had a tube put in him two days before this, thus, when the first tube was taken out, the stomach moved back to where it originally rests. Once the nurse put the new tube in, it did not go in the patient’s stomach; therefore, when the feeding liquids were put into the tube, it went into his abdominal cavity instead of his stomach, which led to a large infection, and death. http://www.sandiegoaccidentinjurylawyer.com/lawyer-attorney-1279341.html 3.

Art Appreciation Unit 3 Discussion Board

...Art Appreciation Unit 3 Discussion Board American Intercontinental University HUMA205 June 24, 2013 Michelangelo Buonarroti and Leonardo da Vinci were considered masters of the arts. Both men communicated their visions through their works or masterpieces. I will attempt to compare and contrast two works of art, one by Michelangelo and the other by Leonardo. The masterpiece I chose from Michelangelo Buonarroti is The Last Judgment. This work was painted on the alter wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. Michelangelo started this work in 1508 and finished in 1512. (Art and the Bible, nd) It represents the second coming of Christ and the final judgment of God. The picture presents Christ as judge and condemns everyone on his left to eternal fire, as he raises those on his right to heaven to be with the saints and angels. The picture radiates out from the center figure of Christ. Originally all the people were painted naked, but after quite a bit of controversy they were painted over with veils and loincloths. The Last Judgment is monochromatic and flesh tones and sky colors dominate the work. Yellow, orange, green and blue are scattered throughout the painting. Michelangelo focuses on the action of human creatures quite different than Leonardo’s emphasis on perspective such as birds in flight. His art enhances the naturalism and he had a great skill at portraying profound emotions that make this painting striking. The painting is sort of......

...Jim O’Brien Phase 3 Discussion Board – Project Risk Management MPM434-1204A-02 Contracts and Procurement Professor Christian Cheney No matter the size of a project, there are going to be risks associated with the project. Identifying risks early in a project can be critical to whether a project succeeds or fails. You can gain success for your project if you deal with project risks in a proactive manner. The result will be that you minimize the impact on the project and seize the opportunity to correct potential project road blocks (B. Jutte). All project plan need to include a risk management plan that is implemented early in the project and monitored throughout the life of the project (Risk Management Guide for DoD Acquisition). This discussion post asked us to identify four potential overall risks that could be experienced in the execution of our contract and procurement plan. The four major risks that could be experienced in the execution of my contract and procurement plan are: technical, schedule, production and cost. My contract and procurement plan is the development of a variable speed air refueling drogue to support tactical air refueling of rotary-wing and tilt-rotor aircraft by Air Combat Command and Air Force Special Operations Command C-130J tanker aircraft. Currently the tanker aircraft are configured with a either a low speed drogue for rotary-wing air refueling or a high speed drogue for tilt-rotor air refueling. Both of the commands......

...Discussion Board Forum 1 Adrian R. Castaneda Liberty University BUSI 620 Global Economic Environment Dr. Virgil Mensah-Dartey October 24, 2013 DB FORUM 1 Question 3 Unethical behavior and unlawful behavior are different in a sense that unethical behavior violates integrity, while unlawful behavior violates established laws. When discussing unethical behavior in the business context, one should consider the overall focus of a business; maximize profits for shareholders and owners. The way a business operates to make money can be treated as ethical or unethical. An unethical type of practice in the business world can consist of a business that is determined to make a profit without considering the morale and comfort of their employees (Svensson & Wood, 2008). By failing to have happy employees in your business and over working them to make a profit can cause an ethical dilemma as the employee can see this type of business operation as a way of prioritizing profit over the employee morale. According to Thomas, Schermerhorn & Dienhart (2004) unlawful behavior is actions that breaks established laws or rules that control business practices. This type of behavior can be easier detected over unethical behavior because by violating unlawful behavior, the individual or individuals are violating written laws. For example, giving away insider trading information on a new medicine is a type of unlawful behavior in the business context. Businesses have written......

...Discussion Forum 1 Question 1.5: A sales forces manager needs to have information in order to decide whether to create a custom motivation program or purchase one offered by a consulting firm. What are the dilemmas the manger faces in selecting either of these alternatives? With selecting either of the programs, the sales force manager can face dilemmas. Before deciding on any of the programs the manger must know the goals that he/she is looking to accomplish. After deciding on the goals the manager needs to decide between conducting the research individually or buying and using research for the consulting firm. With the custom motivation program the manger can conduct his/her own research. With conducting the research the manager needs to look at the existing levels of motivation and see what enticements would need to be used to help the employees change to the desired motivation. The manager can look at information that has already been used. For instance a change in another part of the business could have an effect on the level of motivation that the employees have. If the enticements help increase the motivation of the employee then the custom motivation program will be good for the manger. If the custom motivation program fails then the consulting firm may be best. With the consulting firm the manger will have to think about investing before making an agreement with the firm. The manger need to invest in a firm that will fall into the business budget. Going over......

What features or functions of PowerPoint (PPT) do you feel are generally useful? I’ve never used PowerPoint so this is new to me. After reading and watching the M.U.S.E videos and the other sources in the learning materials, I feel that all the features and functions to PowerPoint will be useful. I have learned that your PowerPoint presentation should not be too flashy and the sound to your presentation should be appropriate. I have learned that you can add tables from Excel and Word and also add animations too. I think as long as you put together a great presentation with information that when you add clipart and sound that meets the presentation and is appropriate the presentation will be amazing. 2. From your experience of sitting through PowerPoint (PPT) presentations, what are some things that presenters have included in their PowerPoint Presentation that you feel are annoying and should not be included in a “good” PPT presentation? In my business there are tons of PowerPoint training presentations. What I feel is most annoying is pointless information. I’ve seen some that give me information but then put information in that has nothing to do with the subject of the presentation itself. Another thing is cartoon graphics. I personally don’t want to see an animation of random things especially if they have nothing to......

...Discussion Board Unit 3 Comp102/1401B Introduction to Computer Lab For your discussion board for Week 3, use your favorite search engine to research the steps necessary to do an effective presentation using PowerPoint. Explore beyond your first results, and look for information that interests you and that you did not know about making effective presentations. I had found this website while researching steps to effective presentations (http://presentationsoft.about.com/od/powerpointtips/qt/planningppt.htm). This site focuses more on the before steps before you start actually designing your PowerPoint presentation. I thought that this was useful because in order to create a PowerPoint presentation you should be prepared and have your information ready In Gathering your Information they used a saying that caught my attention (Kiss-Keep It Simple Silly). I thought that was a good reminder to not overdue yourself on the presentation. Also I thought that sticking with 3 or 4 main points for your presentation was a good tip because if you use too much information then your presentation will lose the audience’s attention. I found this website Speaking about Presenting at (http://www.speakingaboutpresenting.com/design/effective-powerpoint-presentations/). It caught my attention with the phrases that they used. Avoid cheesy effects and focus on simple design basics. This site also had tips on viewing the PowerPoint presentation pertaining to the backgrounds of the......

Discussion Board Forum 2 Case Study Busi 561

...Discussion Board Forum 2 Case Study Business Ethics Roger Charnock BUSI 561 Abstract Most people are committed to doing the right thing; however that is not always the case in business. Since the days of a formal handshake to close a deal, the contract has evolved into a complex process. Many years ago society believed in the power of the spoken word; thus the statement my word is my bond, however since the downfall of mankind in the garden mistrust and out right egregious acts to undermine the boundaries of right and wrong has become more prevalent, especially in business. Christians conducting business in this present business model have to protect themselves from individuals who are self-seeking and unscrupulous. This paper will look at one example of contracts, while maintaining your spirituality. Contracts “In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19 Amplified Bible). Since the days of Adam, society has tried to find an angle, something that will give them an advantage. While competition is good especially in the world of contracting, fair and reasonable is the oil that lubes the contracting wheel. Still this sense of right or wrong does not prevent poor contracts or unscrupulous dealings. The struggle for supremacy had its impetus with Cain and Abel. Jealousy and material gain will create irrational thoughts and entice someone to do...

Acct311 Unit 3 Discussion Board

...ACCT311 Unit3 - Discussion Board Consider the following scenario: Jim’s Music Company uses LIFO for inventory, and the company’s profits are quite high this year. The cost of inventory has been steadily rising all year, and Jim is worried about his taxes. You are Jim's accountant and you suggested that the company make a large purchase of inventory to be received during the last week in December. You explained to Jim that this would reduce his income significantly. Jim still doesn't understand the logic of your suggestion. Explain how the purchase would affect taxable income. (1 paragraph) Is this ethical? Jim is uncertain about the appropriateness of this from a legal and ethical perspective. Give your opinion and explain the ethical implications of making the purchase. (1 to 2 paragraphs) I would tell Jim that if he was to make the large purchase close to the end of the year, it would leave his taxable income lower due to the unsold inventory. There wouldn't be anything unethical about this transaction because it would all be recorded into the proper categories. I work for a large corporation and in my department; my manager tells me that we need to buy all we can during the last quarter. She tells me that this will help our projected budget for the upcoming year. I feel that this is a similar situation. If Jim didn’t make the purchase, leaving his end of year net come high, the big boss can lower the budget for the next year for the inventory......

Acct311 Unit 3 Discussion Board

...The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation. The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit. Consider the following scenario: Jim’s Music Company uses LIFO for inventory, and the......

It includes a job Title, reporting relationships, a summary of responsibilities, and a level of decision-making authorized and hiring requirements information.” Hawkes, C. L, &Weathinton, B. L. (2014).Competency-Based Versus Task-Based Job descriptions: Effects on applicant attract. Journal of behavior & applied management, 15(3), 190-211 Summary: In an Organization, Human Resources is responsible for making Job Descriptions and handing them over to management. Some of the Job Descriptions are too long, outdated meaning that the information is not current, it is boring and confusing. According to Miller, a best Job description is one that is simple and straight forward, easy to understand. It is the road map to a good performance which benefits an Organization or Company instead of a boring document that contains theoretical activities (Miller, pg. 394) A Job description written well can also be used or rather can serve as a reminder of what is expected of the employees and most of all can be used in the recruiting process to attract good candidates who can be motivated and be able to perform a great job.

...Discussion 4 I have never thought about getting information for my genetics but with cancer running in my family it may be beneficial to get a test like such done in order to help me prepare for the future. I do not think I would want to know my partner’s genetics. I think if there is a safe way of getting my child’s genes while it was in the womb I would want to. I would only care to see if my child is a healthy baby. If a child is unhealthy I would want to modify its genetics if possible to make it healthy. I personally believe if someone knows their child is going to have a disability and chose to carry the child full term it is selfish act done on the of the parent ( I apologize if this is offensive to anyone). Being an intern teacher of special needs; I have worked with many children who have disabilities and are in constant pain but cannot tell anybody or do anything about it. Some of these children have had many surgeries and have to continue to receive an enormous amount of medications. I know I would not want to live like that so I would never wish pain upon my child. Being a parent should be a selfless act not a selfish act. When I was younger I had a cancerous brain tumor and luckily I survived but I know so many people who did not and I wonder if our parents could have aborted us to not have to watch us go through the pain, surgeries, suffering, and the enormous costs of medical bills would their lives have been better or would I have been born in another......
