Essay #4 3/31/14 Cause and Effect A book is something that might be taken for granted, due to the Internet and computers. Some people do not have patience to read books fully and they either use the Internet or just skim through books. The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, by Nicholas Carr is a novel that explains some of the things that have helped reading to evolve. Many things like the printing press, books, maps, the typewriter, the Internet, and the Greek alphabet have helped reading to evolve. The printing press is what caused books to become popular.
INVENTORY VALUATION Retailers, such as college bookstores, use the retail method instead of the more familiar FIFO/LIFO methods of inventory valuation because it is easier to comply with GAAP reporting under the retail method. FIFO or LIFO would not be very effective in this scenario because it would be tough to account for which books were purchased in what order. Not only would it be difficult to decipher the order in which the books came, but it would also be tough to keep track of individual textbook prices. As a result, certain retailers, such as The University Store, use the retail method, which estimates the value of ending inventory through the cost to price ratio. Under the retail method, retailers only have to keep track of retail value of goods available for sale, retail value of goods purchased and total costs.
Also, some regional libraries will have the specific information you are looking for compared to the other ones. As stated before, online research databases will provide you information that might not be available in the bookshelf at one of the Ohio State libraries. Online databases aren’t only limited to books and articles, they also have peer reviewed journals, Google Scholar, and many other research databases to search from. Finally, a new tool that is a great resource is OhioLINK.

According to one article in Science magazine, we're not necessarily losing our ability to remember things. Rather, the internet is changing how we remember things. Certain types of memory are improving as well, when the brain reroutes how we recall information, it develops different types of memory capabilities.

Despite these advances in our society today more Americans buy airline tickets and check in to flights online, purchase goods on the Web, and even earn degrees online in such disciplines as nursing, law, and business, and yet the bulk of patients are given handwritten medication prescriptions, and a small amount of patients are able to email their physician or even schedule an appointment to see a provider without speaking to a live receptionist. The Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems have the makings to convert the health care system from a typical paper-based industry to one that make use of clinical and other pieces of information to aid providers to achieve higher quality of care to their patients (Menachemi, N. & Collum). Now that health data is accessible electronically to providers, EMRs make sharing of patient information easy through HIE (HIE is the process of sharing patient-level electronic health information between different organizations and can create many efficiencies in the delivery of health
Veronica Hart English 1-11/09-015 Dr. Carlos October 2, 2012 Research in the Library On September 25th I interviewed Matthew Todd, who is the collection development librarian. Todd is in charge of which books come into the library and which books are taken out of the library at Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC). Our conversation was based on what improvements can be made to the library. As I continued researching the library I discovered other aspects of the NVCC library that could be improved, such as: advertising, work-space in the library, and library benefits. NVCC library pays over 200 thousand dollars a year to run the campus and online library.

This allows those with an interest in a medical problem or general health are able to search quality information that is peered reviewed without paying for it or being associated with higher
Most people find reading books easier so don’t some people like me because I prefer researching on the internet to searching for stuff in the library. Some people will support Carr by saying that the internet really makes us dumber but I’m on the opposite side because I defiantly think it makes as smarter especially with this technology that keeps improving as years come. All these things we have today and are able to access to will not be available without the internet because people or researchers wouldn’t have been able to get accurate information about what they were looking
