...Ozone Layer Depletion: Effects and Causes of Ozone Depletion Ozone is a colorless gas found in the upper atmosphere of the Earth and formed by the action of ultraviolet radiation on oxygen. Ozone forms a layer in the stratosphere, which protects life on Earth from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. Ads by Google Olay Total Effects 1 Bottle Fights 7 Signs of Ageing, Try Olay Total Effects Today! www.olay.in Today, one of the most discussed and serious environmental issues is the ozone layer depletion, the layer of gas that forms a protective covering in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Ozone is formed when oxygen molecules absorb ultraviolet photons and undergo a chemical reaction known as photo dissociation or photolysis, where a single molecule of oxygen breaks down to two oxygen atoms. The free oxygen atom (O), then combines with an oxygen molecule (O2) and forms a molecule of ozone (O3). The ozone molecules, in turn absorb ultraviolet rays between 310 to 200 nm wavelength and thereby prevent these harmful radiations from entering the Earth's atmosphere. In the process, ozone molecules split up into a molecule of oxygen and an oxygen atom. The oxygen atom (O) again combines with the oxygen molecule (O2) to regenerate an ozone (O3) molecule. Thus, the total amount of ozone is maintained by this continuous process of destruction and regeneration. Ozone layer depletion first captured the attention of the whole world in the later half of 1970 and since then, many......

...Abstract An internship, no matter in what kind of educational setting must encompass observation, inquiry, hands-on experiences, and a built relationship between the mentor and mentee. When this relationship is built, the administrative team can come together to create a vision that the school can and will reach. The day to day operations of the school will operate as normal and the professional staff puts students first. The school can look at data and as a school become transparent in the goals that have been set. When these are at the forefront of critical decision making, the school will then be able to make strides towards success. Introduction An internship is one that allows a principal candidate to get ready for the world of supervision and educational leadership. It allows for experiences in the field of leadership and allows the candidate to get a hands-on, real world experience. During my internship, I have had the experience of really getting to see the day to day duties of my principal as well as the instructional, visionary, collaborative, and supervision side. Betty, J. M. (2007), goes on to say, “Collaboration must be an expectation that is supported both vocally and administratively by the principal who wants collaboration to be a commonplace occurrence in schools. Communication and visibility are crucial to the process. The principal who wishes collaboration to occur must be seen and heard discussing collaboration in the......

Paperless Environment

...Part 1 Final Project “Will a paperless environment improve the Veterans Benefit Processing?” Timberly M Williams Kaplan University GM505 Action Research and Consulting Skills Professor Dr. Barbara-Leigh Tonelli 08/20/2013 Part One of Final Project This paper explains the benefits of a paperless environment within the Department of Veteran Affairs. Here I will research all of the positive and negative benefits on how this process will help eliminate Veterans wait time on benefit approval. Scope and Purpose VBA is responding to the significant expansion in the scope and complexity of its mission. While VA completed a record-breaking 1 million claims per year over the past three years, the number of claims received continues to exceed the number processed and the backlog of claims has grown. In response, VA is implementing a comprehensive Transformation plan—a series of people, process and technology initiatives—to increase productivity and accuracy of disability claims processing. Once the Transformation is fully implemented, VA expects to systematically reduce the backlog and reach its 2015 goal - to eliminate the claims backlog and process all claims within 125 days with 98 percent accuracy. | VBA Compensation Benefits There are currently 3.9 million Veterans receiving disability benefits from VA. In the past four years, VA has added more than 940,000 Veterans to the VA compensation rolls, more than the active duty Army and Navy combined. In fiscal year......

... at the Paperless Office concept was first introduced in the 70-ties, as a futuristic office work-style, when the first personal computers were introduced. Advances in information & communication technology has since then made the Paperless Office a feasible reality. The advantages of going paperless are many and undeniable. LEARN MORE ABOUT PAPERLESS The terms "paperless," "electronic," and "digital" are often used interchangeably to describe work which previously was done with paper, but which now has been adapted to information & communication technology (ICT) devices and software. The Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) has defined information technology (IT) in the electronic era as "the study, design, development, implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and computer hardware." IT entails processes involving the use of computers and software to create, convert, store, process, transmit, and retrieve information securely. The term has recently been broadened to ICT (Information and Communications Technology), so as to include the idea of electronic communication. To be paperless means essentially that the traditional paper-based practices-such as writing, note taking, reading, editing, communicating, and even drawing-are instead performed electronically with ICT devices and software. Much has been said and written about the paperless office in recent years, and the rapid......

Proving Efficiencies by Going Paperless

...Proving efficiencies by going Paperless In an effort to reduce the amount of paper my team was generating for my Company, I needed to prove the efficiency of obtaining an electronic system to create and store documentation. A company trying to go paperless can be a vast undertaking as well as very costly. Since cost will drive the change, I needed identify the key components and benefit it would be to the organization to obtain such a tool. It would seem like a simple change, but when you work in a regulated environment, you need to ensure you have the right system in place that does not compromise data. There is also always that question of how do you make that switch, what is the best application to use to drive cost down, and more importantly, what do you do with all the existing paper? During my tenure with my company, I was a manager of a validation team that tested Interactive Voice Response Systems for Clinical Trials. Paper documents were printed daily, showing proof of work performed, and kept in a locked storage cabinet for future use. Over time, and many discussions with my staff and outside clients, it was apparent that our competitors were way ahead of us technically and were moving in the direction of using paperless systems. The collection of paper that my teamed generated was in massive quantities. The storage of the documentation became a greater problem since space was limited. The issue was that documentation, needed to be kept for the......

Writings in Accounting

...and so on” (p. 2), As far as we are known, financing has much dramatic change from time to time and as a result of that, new financial risks will appear, which needs to catch up with times. So it is necessary to make some reports about the financial influence and it should be corrected at all times in order to avoid mistake and redundancy. What’s more, the standard should be strict and abide by some financial writing techniques with a proper analysis and comprehensive integration. Therefore, from the interview’s experience, we may be aware of that it is necessary to make some practice, especially for the freshmen whose major is financial risk management. Jeff Goins proved “Good writers practice. They take time to write, crafting and editing a piece until it’s just right. They spend hours and days, just revising.” (Jeff Goins, 2016) Doris says that during her college years, she only spent little time on professional training; hence, at the beginning of the financial field, Doris requires to consuming 1.5 hours on writing to improve her deficiency. Therefore, from the direction of the freshmen, they have no choice but to pay more attention to this major. In addition, emails’ writing also has significant effects in fact and could not be ignored in some cases. According to Hansen “E-mail is so heavily and globally used to communicate in the workplace—replacing the telephone as the primary communications venue” (Katharine Hansen Ph.D.) Finding jobs about financial risk......

Individuals are becoming overwhelmed by scraps of paper, and unorganized file folders, we are simply looking for ways to reduce clutter. Many organizations and institutions have at least made a partial move to a paperless office. They are doing so by; using scanners instead of copying machines, sending electronic faxes instead of paper faxes, and storing information electronically instead of in filing cabinets. It would be a myth if most people believed it was possible to go completely "paperless".

There are numerous obstacles and attitudes which needs to change, prior to your home office or business can go green. One major obstacle is ensuring that your files are properly backed up. In the past, we would typically make a photocopy of a document and place it in a folder so that it can be easily retrieved from a filing cabinet.

Unfortunately, those files can't just be created; they are required to be backed up as well. There are numerous solutions on the market which can assist individuals and corporations to safely......

Paperless Accounting Systems

...Paperless accounting firms are becoming increasingly prevalent in a rapidly evolving business environment. A substantial number of firms are researching and implementing paperless systems as a means to increase efficiency, provide a higher level of reliability to customers, and decrease costs. This paper will examine some of the advantages and disadvantages of paperless accounting, some necessary steps in implementing the new technology, as well as the relation between paperless systems and the COSO Internal Control Framework. There are many reasons a firm could desire to change from a paper-based system to an electronic system. Substantial research and analysis should be done on both the current work system and the prospective paperless system to determine if a firm is capable of making the switch, and if the switch would be beneficial by a cost/benefit level. In determining if a firm should transition to a paperless work environment, it is important for the company to examine the costs associated with both options. Some of the costs associated with paper-based business environments include: * An average of $20 in labor costs to file a document * An average of $120 in labor costs searching for missing documents * An average of $220 in labor costs on reproducing lost documents * $24 to manually produce an invoice In determining the costs associated with the implementation of a new paperless business environment, the firm must examine the needs of the......
