The six project being funded by the U.S government through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency mainly seeks to create a new and unique approach towards the various computer design that will be put into use both today and tomorrow. Through the improvement of the Von Neumann architecture, it seeks to ensure that the data being used is able to directly communicate with the processor creating a situation where there exists exclusive access to the memory and the storage in the computer (Iagnemma, K.2010). The key goal of all the six projects under the agency is to ensure that the need for the motherboard is eliminated and that there exists an alternative architecture where logic can be directly communicated to the memory. One of the centers under the….

The group includes top business lead- ers such as Carlos Ghosn, the Brazilian- Lebanese-French CEO of Japanese

Why you must shift your strategy downstream, from products to customers by Niraj Dawar
consumer, finding herself in a park on a hot summer day, gladly pays two dollars for a chilled can of Coke sold at the point-of-thirst through a vending machine. That 700% price premium is attributable not to a bet- ter or different product but to a more convenient means of obtaining it. What the customer values is this: not having to remember to buy the 24-pack in advance, break out one can and find a place to store….
The two criteria for assessing the quality of qualitative research outlines are validity and reliability (Golafshani, N., 2003). Validity in qualitative research is characterized as the “propriety of the instruments, procedures, and information” (Golafshani, N., 2003). In qualitative research, the substance of reliability for qualitative research lies with consistency (Golafshani, N., 2003). As a public policy and administration candidate, it is essential for me to understand that strategies I develop have both positive and negative effects on a population of people. I have an obligation to the people I serve only to allow those people whom I represent influence policy and change. Ethical issues that arise in research to me our culture and media biases. In this day in age, the media controls the American culture. Before….
Inductive reasoning and behavior is using simple models to fill in the gaps in our understanding given a lack of full definition of the problem (Arthur, 1994). Individuals, or agents, perceive stimuli and information differently, and react in different ways. This is a system of learning, and old hypothesis may be discarded for new ones as the agents perception is updated with repetition or clearer information. Arthur (1994), describes the inductive-reasoning system that consists of multiple belief-models or hypothesis that adapt to the environment as an adaptive complex system.
Agent-based modeling is a simulation modeling technique using a collection of autonomous decision makers called agents that individually assess their situation and make a decision based on a set of rules (Bonebeau, 2002). Agent-based modeling is a….
The faculty of the School of Psychology at Capella University require that all dissertation designs meet the highest standards of rigor and consistency. To ensure that dissertations using qualitative designs meet such standards, there are five approaches that the faculty consider appropriate to guide a qualitative inquiry in general psychology. The faculty have chosen these approaches because
· they can be applied to research topics and questions typically studied in psychology;
· they have clear, linear, and rigorous data collection and data analysis procedures;
· they are well-supported in the standard methodology literatures used in our courses;
· they are found in qualitative studies published in many peer-reviewed journals in psychology and human science research; and
· they are presented to learners….
The two remaining types of qualitative research we will cover are ethnography and case study. The following is excerpted from Qualitative Research Approaches in Psychology by William Percy and Kim Kostere (2008).
Ethnography is a descriptive research approach designed for in-depth investigation and description of cultures, cultural groups, large organizations and groupings, and their features. Ethnographers immerse themselves in the culture or organization they are studying, becoming a part of the culture in order to learn about it “from the inside out.” Consequently, this approach often requires longer timeframes for data collection, and ethnographers frequently return a number of times to the sites of their investigations to obtain more data. As a result, ethnographic studies typically have long time commitments. However, ethnography can be a fruitful approach, even in shorter….
Strategy formulation requires an objective analysis of the factors that characterize the company’s strategic situation. There are a number of techniques that can be used to create a quick strategic overview of the company. SWOT analysis is an example of such a technique. SWOT analysis is based on the assumption that an effective strategy derives from a soundit” between the company’s internal resources (Strengths and Weaknesses) and its external situation (Opportunities and Threats). A good fit maximizes the company’s strengths and opportunities and minimizes its weaknesses and threats.

Define the accounting cycle.
The accounting cycle can be defined as process that includes a revolving series of steps to include: recording journal entries, posting those entries into ledger accounts, adjusting journal entries, preparing an adjusted trial balance and financial statements, recording closing entries, preparing post-closing trial balances and record reversing entries.
Define and differentiate between the purpose of a journal entry, an adjusting entry, and a closing entry.
The purpose of a journal entry is to express the results of a transaction on accounts written in a debits-equal-credits format.
An adjusted entry is made at the end of the accounting period to ensure that revenues are recorded when earned, expenses are recorded when incurred to generate revenue, assets and liabilities are reported to represent probable future benefits/services….
One of the current and most popular approaches to leadership that has been the focus of much research since the early 1980s is the transformational approach. Transformational leadership is part of the “New Leadership” paradigm (Bryman, 1992), which gives more attention to the charismatic and affective elements of leadership. In a content analysis of articles published in Leadership Quarterly, Lowe and Gardner (2001) found that one third of the research was about transformational or charismatic leadership. Similarly, Antonakis (2012) found that the number of papers and citations in the field has grown at an increasing rate, not only in traditional areas like management and social psychology, but in other disciplines such as nursing, education, and industrial engineering. Bass and Riggio (2006) suggested that transformational leadership’s popularity might be due to….
