I also remember taking a class at Kaplan for my undergraduate program that the professor completely and totally told us that Wikipedia was a very viable site to get primary source information for his research papers. He encouraged us to use the website for information but also be aware of any vandalism that may be apparent in certain topics. Personally, I would only use Wikipedia as a pre-search tool for better information. Inappropriate: As Clay Burell said, I’ve been skimming Wikipedia’s own policies for writing and research, and Lo! The Great Wikipedia itself tells its writers the very things I was trying to tell my young fundies.” (2010) In most cases, most school, libraries or any type of educational program will tell you that Wikipedia is a very good start to get to know about the subject that a person is studying.
Mcluhan states that “people naturally get caught up in the information” (McLuhan qtd. Carr 2). This is evident with Nicolas Carr as he finds himself evolving into the technological world. Even when he is away from the computer he describes himself wanting to check his email, Google something, or even click on some links. Carr states “Just as Microsoft Word had turned me into a flesh-and-blood word processor, the Internet, I sensed was turning me into something like a high-speed data processing machine, a human HAL.
I find his use of art in science and having a scientific approach to his art to be subtle in its brilliance. Even though I have not yet been able to apply art to my subject studies, I have done something similar by taking my findings of human nature from my study of English Literature and Business Studies, applying it to working with people in my school’s student government, particularly in relation to choice of leadership styles and efficient
Bob Ross Sept 21, 2012 Research Paper 1 In today’s information thriving society, we sometimes take for granted the technologies that provide us with that information. We turn to the World Wide Web for everything these days, whether it’s buying, selling, watching tv, talking with friends, etc. Yet many do not understand the infrastructure that must be in place in order to do these things. We have to marvel at the technology that made all of this possible, and also recognize how it’s all built. The ability to route data across the Internet can’t be done without an IP address.
Flexibility is a very important tool to possess in my professional occupation, since I do not know where I am going to be or what I am going to be tasked with tomorrow. As stated by GEMS I am a Visual Learner and I have experienced that it is a lot easier for me to be tasked with written guidance and examples. I always take written notes during meetings. For me the GEMS survey is a strong confirmation that I have chosen the right college degree Emergency and Disaster Management, because I am flexible, Task Specific, Helpful to others and a strong Team
Analysis of the Powerscreen Problem In our recent negotiation, my partner Dave and I assumed the roles of Alan Hacker, a computer software developer, and Alan Hacker’s lawyer. As the lawyer in the negotiation, my objective was to avoid litigation with my client’s partner, Stanley Star, and to aid in the continuation of my client’s co-owned company, HackerStar. In addition, I would assist Hacker in reaching an agreement that would be satisfying for him both personally and financially. Dave and I presented a reasonable argument on Hacker’s behalf; and, since I was able to utilize information from our class readings during the process, I was pleased with the overall outcome. My partner, Dave, and I met on 3 separate occasions to discuss the side of Alan Hacker in “The Powerscreen Problem” negotiation.
Name : Kanuri Seema Rani Application: CS, MS Fall, 2016 PERSONAL STATEMENT “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” –a very compelling quote given by Steve Jobs in his biography written by Walter Isaacson. Insanely ambitious, prodigious creativity, astonishing ideas and sheer passion for perfection and quality, this defines Steve Job’s and I’m sure he is an inspiration for many and I am one among them. The story of Steve Job’s is one of the reason which sparked my keen interest in Computers and programming and this curiosity inspired me to choose a career in Software Development and Programming. Computers have changed the way we perceive the world. Computer Programmers and Developers are always trying to

Now, he can zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski. Trent Batson’s article “Response to Nicholas Carr’s “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” Batson has served as a professor of English, as Director of Academic Computing at two universities, and as communications strategist at MIT. His research areas include e-portfolios, teaching digital writing and other areas that bring together technological literacy and learning. You might consider the stasis points between Carr and Batson and, more specifically, whether technology has indeed provided a useful and effective form of public dialogue. Batson says that Carr being a writer he finds the Web a valuable tool, but he thinks it’s having a bad effect on his concentration.
Virtual VS Brick and Mortar Business There are advantages, disadvantages, pros, and cons in conducting business in a brick and mortar environment compared to doing business in a virtual environment. Some of these differences are clear and obvious and some, not so much. My job in real estate is a combination of brick and mortar in that I do have an office to go to, however, my job consists of primarily web based activities that can be performed from any location. I also believe these differences extend beyond providing business advantages and encompass school activities as well. This is my primary reference point as I have attended both brick and mortar universities and now am strictly virtual.
