- Introduction : - 1,172 words
... e dividends form part of the share's finance costs and, as such, are charged to the P & L account with other finance costs to achieve a constant rate on the outstanding instrument. However, the standard did not mention about what should be done with the credit that arises as a result of charging the cumulative dividend to the P & L account as an appropriation when the company has no distributable profits. For instance, it could be credited to liabilities as a dividend payable, but this does not answer - the dividend cannot be declared without distributable reserves from which to make the payment. In addition, there are no transitional provisions in the standard and, therefore, it appears ...

- Microwave Oven Effects On Wireless Lans - 1,275 words
Microwave Oven Effects On Wireless Lans Microwave Oven Interference on Wireless LANs Operating in the 2.4 GHz ISM Band Abstract - Commercial microwave ovens as applied in restaurants have two magnetron tubes and compared to domestic kitchen counterparts they spread the higher RF power and radiated heating energy more evenly. The domestic kitchen or residential microwave ovens have only one magnetron tube. The interference from the commercial type of microwave ovens is more difficult to characterise than the interference from the residential ones. The commercial type of microwave ovens radiate a CW-like interference that sweeps over tens of MHz during the two bursts per mains power cycle. The ...

- Quantam Computing - 2,105 words
Quantam Computing What is quantum computing? Quantum Computing is something that could have been thought up a long time ago - an idea whose time has come. For any physical theory one can ask: what sort of machines will do useful computation? or, what sort of processes will count as useful computational acts? Alan Turing thought about this in 1936 with regard (implicitly) to classical mechanics, and gave the world the paradigm classical computer: the Turing machine. But even in 1936 classical mechanics was known to be false. Work is now under way - mostly theoretical, but tentatively, hesitantly groping towards the practical - in seeing what quantum mechanics means for computers and computing ...

- The Scarlet Letteranalysis - 1,598 words
... horne uses the scaffold scenes, not only as a unifying device, but as a means to keep the reader interested in the novel by providing plenty of action.

She becomes stronger because of all the weight she has to carry. She is a single mother who suffers all of the burdens of parenthood by herself. They live on the edge of town, and Pearl has no one to give her food, shelter and emotional support besides Hester. Pearl is especially difficult to raise because she is anything but normal. Hawthorne gives a pretty accu ...

The Tuskegee Airman For my term paper I chose the Tuskegee Airman. They will alway be the most influential air squadron during WWII.

It all started when President Roosevelt arranged a meeting in September 1940 with three African-American leaders and members of the Army and Navy. During the meeting, the leaders emphasized three points:(1)equal opportunity for jobs in the defense industry, (2)impartial administration of the new draftlaw, and (3)an opportunity for qualified blacks to learn to fly in desegrated units.*1* A few d ...

Truman: An Exemplar Of Leadership Running Head: TRUMAN Truman: an Exemplar of Leadership NUR 6101 Bev Holland Seattle Pacific University Truman: an Exemplar of Leadership Many Americans think of Harry S. Truman as the Missouri farmer who became president, defied convention by speaking his mind, and retired to a life of quiet gentility in his hometown of Independence, Missouri. Truman and his presidency, however, were much more complex. As depicted by McCullough, Truman, though the first president of the nuclear era, was fundamentally a throwback to the 19th century. Truman's central values included honesty, integrity and humility. His nature was to be self-effacing. These characteristics are ...
