Introduction
Coffee was introduced to Jamaica by Sir Nicholas Lawes governor of Jamaica at that time, he brought the plant from Haiti in 1728. It was first planted in the parish of St. Andrew on the Blue Mountains. The Coffee Industry became successful because of the natural attributes of the country such as the cool climate which was suitable for the growth of coffee. The relief of the land such as the rugged mountains and the rich soil. The marketing overseas also proved valuable as it provided foreign exchange. The industry also provided employment for competent and incompetent workers. As a result of its growth farmers saw it fit to invest in the cultivation of coffee in various parts of Jamaica. It became more dominant in 1838 after slavery was fully abolished and seen as a good investment by others than peasant farmers.

The coffee industry is important to the economy of Jamaica. Coffee is the third most exported agricultural product in Jamaica.

...may be recorded in a data dictionary and the design expressed using a programming definition language (PDL). According to Jens Kaasbøl (1996), “the hard core of object-orientation consist of the following: encapsulated objects with properties and behaviour, classes of objects, and inheritance of general properties and behaviour to specialized classes” (3). And Nygaard (1996) said “In object-oriented programming, an information process is regarded as a system developing through transformation of its state. The substance of the process is organised as the system components, called objects. A measurable property of the substance is a property of an object. Transformation of state is regarded as actions by objects.” Mathiasen et el. (2000) gave the following description “In many traditional Analysis and design methods, functions, data, and data flows are the key concepts”(5). The concepts are suitable for describing phenomena in offices and computerized systems. Objects, states, and behavior on the other hand, are more general concepts and are suitable for describing most phenomena that can be expressed in natural language. Object-oriented programming (OOP) and object-oriented design (OOD) refer to a particular way of organizing programs, one which is rapidly emerging as the preferred approach for building complex software systems (Morelli, R, 2000 pg. 5). Sommerville (2001) gave the following definitions: • Object-oriented analysis is concerned with developing an......

Aquino Ed. D. English II Professor Introduction Undergraduate students have their own reason why they want to work on different fields. Not thinking that working can affect their performance in school. This study provides a reason why students get jobs and its effect on their studies that is suitable for tertiary level. This study involved a survey across our Business Administration students major in Entrepreneurial, and their opinions. The aim in writing this paper is to investigate the effects of working while in schools’ outcomes. On the contrary, working may provide valuable work experience. NBC news states that “Eighty percent of students reported working while attending classes, typically about 19 hours a week.” An increase in the number of students who work to finance their studies is often mentioned as one of the possible causes of these frequent dropouts. Recently, Kalenkoski and Pabilonia (2009a) found that students who work more hours on a particular day spend less time on homework on the same day. This is important because there are economic studies that examine the relationship between the time college students spend on homework and their subsequent achievements. These......

...Undergraduate Research Projects Title: Thesis Adviser: Author: A Predictive Model of Attention in Viewing Selected Grocery Food Products Ms. Rosemary Seva Kathleen V. Garcia Kimberly L. Go Winnie V. Grindulo Date: Call Number: Abstract: Studies on visual attention have identified certain visual factors that attract consumer attention. Visual attention had been found to be related to instore visual factors such as shelf position, number of facings, and packaging design. However, despite their importance attracting consumer attention, no studies had been found to consider combined effects of these factors in consumer attention. As such, this study considered the combined effects shelf position, number of facings and packaging design with the objective of identifying the significant factors and of developing a predictive model of attention. The significant effects of in-store visual factors specifically number of facings, horizontal and vertical shelf positioning, the color, size, and material of, and the text and image on the packaging was used in the development of a conceptual model in predicting attention as measured by the frequency of fixation and the duration of fixation. In order to validate the developed model, an eye-tracking experiment was conducted. Using an eye-tracking device that records the frequency and duration of fixation, the subjects were asked to view a life-size picture of a shelf. Multiple regression analysis was used to analyse the data gathered from the...

...origin and their relation to deviant knowledge, the thesis determines that both terrorism and organised crime are nurtured by a constant trickle from minor sources rather than by large financial transfers; and that anti-money laundering provisions are misapplied, taken too far, too expensive, and incapable of demonstrating their effectiveness. In lieu of more traditional policy recommendations, the thesis develops a complexity-theory based intelligence function, capillary intelligence, to improve the present information-gathering systems and generate consistent and context-relevant intelligence for the consideration of policy-makers. The intelligence function takes into account also the concept of self-organised criticality. The thesis fully adheres to the principle that efficiently applied intelligence-led approaches for detection of organised crime are demonstrably superior to a “follow the money” approach. An extended concept of deviant knowledge is developed and five methodological techniques employed: Complexity theory, network theory, self-organised criticality, scaling theory, and intelligence treatment. The thesis is multidisciplinary and calls on contributions from International Law, Economics, Criminal Justice Studies, and Governance and Ethics. Its approach is illustrative and fits Baudrillard’s 1981 methodological principles known as bricolage. Using five methodologies and six major case studies, the thesis reaches four conclusions. First, the rapid......
