- Air Bags Can Kill - 716 words
Air Bags Can Kill Air Bags Can Kill Even though air bags are designed to save lives, they can be harmful or fatal to some people. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recognized this concern and has made efforts to reduce injuries caused by air bag deployment by allowing the installation of a switch that turns off air bags. But in order to have a switch installed, the driver must file a request for an air bag on-off switch. People shouldnt have to seek permission from the government to disable a device that has been found to be responsible for many deaths from their vehicles. According to The Oracle, Turning off the airbags, (http://zephyr.oracle.usf.edu/archive/199711/1997 ...

- Chief Illiniwek - 1,209 words
Chief Illiniwek Are you anti-Chief or pro-Chief? Before I answered that question I decided to educate myself on the topic and saw this research paper as the perfect opportunity. What I wanted to know was when was the Chief Illiniwek introduce, what the deal is with the dance, and who and why did this anti-Chief movement start. The tradition of Chief Illiniwek was started on October 30, 1926, during a football game against the University of Pennslyvania. Raymond Dvorak, who was the Marching Illini director of the time, chose the person, Lester Leutweiler, who portrayed the first Chief Illiniwek. Lester Leutweiler, a Caucasian, was chosen because he had studied Native American dance and leathe ...

- Computer Viruses - 463 words
Computer Viruses A computer virus is an illegal and potentially damaging computer program designed to infect other software by attaching itself to any software it contacts. In many cases, virus programs are designed to damage computer systems maliciously by destroying or corrupting data. If the infected software is transferred to or accessed by another computer system, the virus spreads to the other system. Viruses have become a serious problem in recent years, and currently, thousands of known virus programs exist (Reed 85-102). Three types of viruses are boot sector virus, file virus, and Trojan horse virus. A boot sector virus infects the boot program used to start the system. When the in ...

- E Commerce - 1,464 words
E Commerce Remember the time when there was no Internet? Where advances in telecommunications and computing largely occurred side-by-side in the past, today, they converge in the Internet. Timesharing, the concept of linking a large numbers of users to a single computer via remote terminals, was developed at MIT in the late 50s and early 60s. In 1973, Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf developed the basic ideas of the Internet. Now days almost everybody is connected to Internet. WORLD INTERNET CONNECTIVITY (As of 6/15/95) (http://www.pbs.org/nerds/timeline/network.html) There is another thing that Internet brought us at affordable price: it is electronic commerce (e-commerce). There is no specific defin ...

- Fractal Geometry - 589 words
Fractal Geometry Fractal Geometry Fractal geometry is a branch of mathematics having to do with fractals. Fractals are geometric figures, just like rectangles, circles and squares, but fractals have special properties that those figures do not have. In geometry two figures are similar if their corresponding angles are congruent in measure. Fractals are self-similar meaning that at every level the fractal image repeats itself. An example of self-similarity would be a triangle made up of triangles that are the same shape or are similar to the whole. Another important property of fractals is fractional dimensions. While in Euclidean geometry figures are either zero dimensional points, one dimen ...

- Hackers Hell - 1,250 words
... .55) According to Barry Weiss, a partner at Gordon & Glickson, a Chicago law firm that specializes in information technology legal issues, for the Internet to be used as a effective tool for communication companies need to define policies and procedures to avoid risk. (Wagner, p.58) Another method in which companies can protect their office systems from hackers is by asking employees to develop and maintain smart passwords. Employees should not write down their passwords and leave them near a computer. They should create password which relate to people closely related to them. Also they should not share their password with anyone and near should they store their passwords in the computer ...

- The Internet - 984 words
The Internet The Internet is the name for a group of worldwide information resources. These resources are so vast as to be well beyond the comprehension of a single human being. Not only is there no one who understands all of the Internet, there is no one who even understands most of the Internet (Harley 2). The Internet is often thought of as a computer network, or sometimes a group of computer networks connected to one another. The computer networks are simply the medium that carries the information. The beauty and utility of the Internet lie in the information itself that is being transmitted. The Internet has undergone a remarkable transformation since its early days. The original Intern ...

It has made a huge impact since its introduction to the public and now some people cannot see life without it. It is also relatively new considering it was just about 10 years ago that it was made public and easily accessible to everyone thorough online services. This paper will describe the history of the Internet and some of the major uses of it. Main Body History The Internet is first conceiv ...

- Unix - 1,608 words
Unix "UNIX was the first operating system designed to run on dissimilar computers by converting most hardware specific commands in machine language into an independent programming language called C," Jon Wolfe writes in the Nashville Business Journal. (Wolfe 29) UNIX was the basis of AT&Ts telephone system and the governments wide area network system. Then it became the basis of communication between engineers and scientists, and eventually the basis of communication for everyone worldwide (World Wide Web (Web)). It has held this remarkable spot since 1969. However, in the 1990s there are competitors in the market, namely, Microsoft Corporation with its Windows NT product. But UNIX-based sof ...
