- A Rose For Emily Time And Setting - 963 words
A Rose For Emily (Time And Setting) In A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner, the author uses the element of time to enhance details of the setting and vice versa. By avoiding the chronological order of events of Miss Emily's life, Faulkner first gives the reader a finished puzzle, and then allows the reader to examine this puzzle piece by piece, step by step. By doing so, he enhances the plot and presents two different perspectives of time held by the characters. The first perspective (the world of the present) views time as a mechanical progression in which the past is a diminishing road. The second perspective (the world of tradition and the past) views the past as a huge meadow which no w ...

- Cable Modems: Cable Tv Meets The Internet - 3,872 words
Cable Modems: Cable Tv Meets The Internet Cable Modems: Cable TV Meets the Internet John G. Shaw IS 3348 October 2, 1999 Abstract The Telecommunications Act of 1996 opened the way for cable TV (CATV) companies to become full-fledged telecommunications companies, offering two-way voice and data communications services, in addition to television programming. After passage of the Act, the cable companies were eager to expand into the new fields of business that had been opened to them, especially the rapidly growing Internet Service Provider (ISP) business. The biggest hurdle facing the cable companies is that cable television systems were designed for one-way traffic, and must be upgraded into ...

Creativity: Beer Can Theory LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE KEY CONCEPTS Attribute listing The decision maker isolates the major characteristics of traditional alternatives. Each major attribute of the alternative is then considered in turn and is changed in every conceivable way. No ideas are rejected, no matter how ridiculous they may seem. Once this extensive list is completed the constraints of the problem are imposed in order to eliminate all but the viable alternatives. Creativity The ability to combine ideas in a unique way or to make unusual associations between ideas. Entrepreneurship The process of initiating a business venture, organizing the necessary resources, and assuming the associat ...

- Edgar Allen Poe - 1,221 words
Edgar Allen Poe 2/96 The short story writer which I have chosen to research is Edgar Allen Poe. After reading one of his works in class, I realized that his mysterious style of writing greatly appealed to me. Although many critics have different views on Poe's writing style, I think that Harold Bloom summed it up best when he said, Poe has an uncanny talent for exposing our common nightmares and hysteria lurking beneath our carefully structured lives. ( 7) For me, this is done through his use of setting and narrative style. In many of Poe's works, setting is used to paint a dark and gloomy picture in our minds. I think that this was done deliberatly by Poe so that the reader can make a conne ...

... on requires great deal of changes in current networks and systems. This requires a lot of time and effort which the management is not willing to sacrifice. People are comfortable with what they have and don't want to change. Although most problems regarding program changing can be solved, the solutions to it will take much longer than expected. Thus, any new program has to be a big improvement over the old one to justify a significant change (although the great improvement usually means that the old program does not work). Another fundamental problem in fiber optic LANs is the change in technology. The hardware and software to make LAN run efficiently add up to an expensive package. If m ...

- Goal - 1,695 words
Goal The Goal by Eliyahu M. Goldratt, is the story of a man who at his crossroads, and what direction he decides to take. The story is about a plant manager named Alex Rogo. We find Alex six months into his first plant managers position at UniCo, in the UniWare Division. The plant is located in Bearington Massachusetts, where Alex grew up. UniCo is definitely a manufacturing plant, what they manufacture, I still do not know. The story begins when Alexs supervisor, Bill Peach, comes into the plant and nearly turns everything upside down.

- Microsoft - 1,120 words
Microsoft The current Microsoft antitrust case, still in progress as this review is being written, has been both hailed and condemned as the most important antitrust action of the coming century. Its potential significance has been compared to that of the Supreme Court's 1911 Standard Oil decision, which not only applied for the first time the trust-busting power latent in the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890 to break up John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company, but of at least equal importance enunciated the rule of reason on which judicial interpretation of the Sherman Act continues to be based. While none of this conference volume's contributors develops this comparison, readers may come a ...

- Printing Press History - 574 words
Printing Press History In the early 1450's rapid cultural change in Europe fueled a growing need for the rapid and cheap production of written documents. Johannes Gutenberg, a goldsmith and businessman from the mining town of Mainz in southern Germany, borrowed money to develop a technology that could address this serious economic bottleneck. Gutenberg foresaw enormous profit-making potential for a printing press that used movable metal type. Gutenberg developed his press by combining features of existing technologies: textile, papermaking and wine presses. Perhaps his most significant innovation, however, was the efficient molding and casting of movable metal type. Each letter was carved in ...

... re usually conventional units of time, most frequently weeks, although one-day, two-week, and one-month time buckets are not uncommon. The time buckets need not be the same for the entire schedule. Each product has its own MPS, and there is also an overall master schedule that synthesizes the requirements for ll products or a group of products that share facilities. The bill-of-materials (BOM) file lists for each end product all assemblies, subassemblies, components, and raw materials necessary to produce the product. A BOM file includes information about how many units of each item are needed for each higher-level item in the product hierarchy (and possibly for the end product itself), ...

... tes, they were on the USS Hornet (http://www.ksc.nasa.gov, Apollo 13). More missions would follow, particularly the Apollo 13 mission, which was almost a complete disaster. Another mission to set humans on the Moon, was aborted after numerous failures 200,000 miles from Earth. The astronauts did return in a Life Module. The last of the Apollo missions was the Apollo Soyuz project that brought along the peace process started earlier by Nixon. The Viking project was the beginning of the Mars exploration, with the first two Viking lander and orbiter missions in 1976 (Vogt, 60). The atmospheric conditions taken from those missions serve as background information for todays plans to send hu ...

... ics38. Thus did they believe a dilution of desirable traits evolved even more diluted desirable traits - these traits now decidedly muted. It was more than two decades after Darwin's death that Mendelian theory of the gene finally came to light at the turn of the century39. Because of this initial scepticism with Darwin's natural selection, when Mendel's work became widely available biologists emphasized the importance of mutation over selection in evolution. Early Mendelian geneticists believe that continuous variation (such features as body size) hardly factored in the formation of new species - perhaps nothing to do with genetic control. Inferences on the gradual divergence of populat ...
