Recently however, there has been other nutrition stores that haven recently opened up in the same areas that Pink Nutrition is planning to open which is going to make it a lot more difficult for Pink Nutrition to have the same success as their current location. The new Nutrition stores that have opened are attempting to copy and adopt similar strategies that have been used successfully by Pink Nutrition. Although, the product differs this will pose to be a difficult task for Pink Nutrition to overcome. Potential clients are however are savvy and Pink Nutrition wants to strengthen its brand identity to spread out with a new marketing campaign.

...Encryption Standard. 7. What is SHA1, and what is it used for? The Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1) is a well-known and currently secure cryptographic hash function designed by the NSA. Is it used similarly to TripleDES or are they different? They are the same, they both use algorithms. 8. Provide and explanation for the difference between symmetric keys and asymmetric keys in a PKI? symmetric-key: It only needs one key to encrypt the message. And both user only need the same key to decode the message. And the in order to create the key is by moving the bit. asymmetric-key: It needs two different keys- public key and private key. Everyone can see the public key and only the person who has private key can decode the message. 9. What is a common drawback to Encrypting using enterprise level tools such as PGP? Complexity, cost, lack of scalability, and lack of interoperability with VoIP systems. So even though implementing encryption is appealing, many businesses may balk at the potential obstacles. 10. What is the difference between PGB and GPG? “PGP” stands for “Pretty Good Privacy.” It was developed by Phil Zimmermann. At first it was written as copyrighted freeware under the Gnu Public License. Later, PGP was upgraded and made into a propriety program. The rights for this program are traded around. The reason for this upgrade was legal defense costs and royalty issues related to the export laws of the USA. Now the PGP program is owned by PGP......

Unit 9 Cognitive Psych

...Unit 9 Assignment Introduction to Cognitive Psychology Linda is an ex substance abuser and has experienced a few relapses. Linda is 33 and is in good health besides damage to her lungs due to smoking crack cocaine. She is concerned about her memory, since she misplaces her car keys at home and losing her car in the parking lot. Linda is also telling stories regarding her children and is later corrected for telling the story about the wrong child. Linda has no brain damage, besides the decay of her memory due to her substance abuse. When one has brain damage, or anyone uses any illicit drug, it affects the function of the brain. She believes she might be suffering from a neurological disorder. I believe the effect she is experiencing is due to her past substance use. Cocaine is known to cause several neurological disorders due to the fact that the crystalline free-base form is water insoluble which when smoking or free basing results in an instantaneous high contributing to the rapid absorption through the large pulmonary surface area and swift penetration to the brain. Cocaine can be absorbed from the mucous membrane, therefore causing neurological complications (Agarwal, 2013). Since she is healthy I would rule out that it is a neurological disorder and that it is just poor memory. Substance abuse affects the brain stem, the limbic system, and the cerebral cortex since drugs are chemicals. Cocaine causes nerve cells to release excessive amounts of natural......

...Valerie Coakley PS220-03: Child and Adolescent Psychology June 22, 2010 Unit 9 Final Project: Urie Bronfenbrenner developed the ecological systems theory to explain how everything in a child and the child's environment affects how a child grows and develops. He labeled different aspects or levels of the environment that influence children's development, including the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, and the macrosystem (Bukatko, 2008). Bronfenbrenner’s theory stresses the need to understand how children develop in everyday life. The development issue I chose to discuss is Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) and how the surroundings and everyday life affects the development. There are different characteristics that accompany FAS in the different stages of a child's life. "At birth, infants with intrauterine exposure to alcohol frequently have low birth rate; pre-term delivery; a small head circumference; and the characteristic facial features of the eyes, nose, and mouth" (Phelps, 1995, p. 204). Some of the facial abnormalities that are common of children with FAS are: microcephaly, small eye openings, broad nasal bridge, flattened mid-faces, thin upper lip, skin folds at the corners of the eyes, indistinct groove on the upper lip, and an abnormal smallness of the lower jaw (Wekselman, Spiering, Hetteberg, Kenner, & Flandermeyer, 1995; Phelps, 1995). These infants also display developmental delays, psychomotor......

...Jason Wells NT 1230 Unit 8 Assignment 2 Active Directory Benefits Multimaster replication and sites One of the benefits of an Active Directory environment is the concept of sites and multimaster replication. In Windows NT, when you make a change to the SAM (Security Accounts Manager), the change is applied directly to the PDC (Primary Domain Controller) and is later replicated to each BDC (Backup Domain Controller). In an Active Directory multimaster replication environment, each domain controller contains a copy of Active Directory, not just the information for a single domain. Therefore, when a change is made to Active Directory, the change is applied to whatever domain controller is the closest, and is then replicated to the remaining domain controllers. This prevents a designated PDC (Primary Domain Controller) from being overburdened. A better representation of the network Centralization sums up a primary reason for implementing Active Directory. The Active Directory structure makes it possible for you to achieve truly centralized management of users, regardless of how big the client’s network has become. In Windows NT a domain is a completely independent entity, and while it's possible to create a trust relationship between domains that exist on a common network, the domains are never truly integrated with each other because there is no higher authority that manages the domains. With Active Directory, this is possible. Organizational Structure The domain......

Forward Biased LED: A bias voltage that is applied to a pn-junction in the direction that causes a large current flow; used in some semiconductor diode circuits. 2. Incoherent Light: Light in which the electric and magnetic fields of photons are completely random in orientation. Incoherent light is typically emitted from light bulbs and LEDs. 3. Laser: Acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. The laser produces a coherent source of light with a narrow beam and a narrow spectral bandwidth (about 2cm). Lasers in fiber optics are usually solid-state semiconductor types. Lasers are used to provide the high-powered, tightly controlled light wave lengths necessary for high-speed, long-distance optical fiber transmissions. 4. Output Pattern: A setting that selects the output pattern for comparison outputs. This enables outputs for changes in levels rather than just upper/lower limit comparisons to set value. It can be set according to the control applications. Note: The settings must be as follows for correct zone outputs. 5. Output Power: The useful signal or power delivered by a circuit or device. 6. Modulation Speed: (1) Coding of information onto the carrier frequency. Types of modulation include amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM), and phase......

...NT1310 Unit 1 Exercise 1 6/17/14 The world is connected more than ever through the use of the internet. From paying bills to shopping or enjoying leisure time on the web; taking advantage of the internet has become second nature to society. Focusing in on one specific type of networking entertainment, online gaming has become a major league sport in its own right. Online gaming allows people from all around the world to connect together to team up or fight against one another. Behind the scenes is where the real magic happens. Between the gamers sits countless devices and hardware not to mention miles and miles of land. Using Call of Duty as an example, each gamer has a copy of the map being played on installed onto their local computer. Every time the gamer moves the direction of their character, their data is sent from their machine to their router, and then out past the demarc point. On the other side of the demarc is where the service provider picks up the data and moves the data from local network to the central office (better known as the local exchange). The central office then sends the data over the MAN (metro area network) or WAN (wide area network) to continue the data to game server. If the data hasn’t reached the server yet (for example the gamer lives in Michigan and the server is in California) the data will be passed over the core (also known as long-haul) network which connects MANs and WANs of different geographies together. On the off......

...Unit 9 Assignment 1. Refer to the sets of the aggregate demand, short-run aggregate supply, and long-run aggregate supply curves. Use the graphs to explain the process and steps by which each of the following economic scenarios will shift the economy from one long-run macroeconomic equilibrium to another equilibrium. Under each scenario, elaborate the short-run and long-run effects of the shifts in the aggregate demand and aggregate supply curves on the aggregate price level and aggregate output (real GDP). a. Suppose the household wealth decreases due to a decline in the stock market asset prices (See the set of graphs below and pay attention to the 3-stage shifts in graphs). Answer: In graph one the decline in the stock market asset price causes the AD line to shift downward, decreasing. The long-run equilibrium in the first graph is the point where all three of the lines (LRAS, S1, and D1) are connecting. With a lower GDP, the aggregated demand curve shifts to the left (D1 to D2) creating a new equilibrium point at a lower price level. In the second graph it shows a higher supply with the increase in the SRAS (S1 to S2) curve. It will create a new long run equilibrium at a lower price level. In the last graph it shows both the shift in the AS curve from AD1 to AD2 due to the decrease and it shows the increase in the SRAS curve from S1 to S2 due to higher supplies. It shows both the old and new equilibrium along the LRAS curve. The first one being higher......

...Unit 9 Assignment Kaplan University CJ211: Police Operations Police Technology has evolved so much from the time of the first modern officer. With population increasing, law enforcement officers needed technology that gave them the chance to do their jobs quicker and better. Instead of having to shoot a suspect, officers now have less than lethal weaponry which makes it possible to incapacitate using different methods. Crime mapping allows police departments to find correlations between crimes in different areas of the city. In order for law enforcement officers to contain traffic pursuits they now use pursuit management technology which helps to stop a pursuit before something gets damaged or somebody gets hurt. Police officers sometimes have to deal with violent, combative people and while dealing with them have to keep in mind the use-of-force protocols. Less-lethal technologies give police an alternative to using physical force options that potentially are more dangerous to the officers and the suspects (National Institute of Justice). There are seven types of less-than lethal technology. Conducted Energy Devices, such as the Taser and Stun gun, can induce involuntary muscle contractions that temporarily incapacitate people. Directed Energy Devices use radiated energy to achieve the same effect as blunt force, without injury. Chemicals, including pepper spray, tear gas, and stink bombs, are used to incapacitate suspects so officers can catch them and......

Hello most esteemed US computer guru, Thank you for setting up our branch office in the US. However, our data center has a problem. It seems that everyone there is in love with Office Depot and has a printer on their desk. We employ 150 people. This is too many printers. The ink is so expensive. I hear many people come in of Saturdays and print baseball schedules, shopping list, and photos of their family. What can you suggest to help me? Thank you! From: AA To Rebop Pakulah Hello Rebop; glad to hear your company has increased in employees and volume. Rebop I cannot believe almost every user in cubicle has their own printer. This must stagnate your network, not to mention office expenses for toner and repair calls. Here is what I am suggesting for your 150 employees; you should have 3 multipurpose printers HP4555mfp printers. Then perhaps keep about 10 small HP printers that may belong to your admin staff, such as HR, Recievers, accounts payable team, and those employees that use a printer for 75% percent of their duties.

Chap Exercise 9

...Exercise 9.9 The write down of Impaired Assets LO4 LO7 For several years, a number of Food Lion, Inc., grocery stores were unprofitable. The company closed, and continues to close, some of these locations. It is apparent that the company will not be able to recover the cost of the assets associated with the closed stores. Thus, the current value of the impaired assets must be written down (see the Case in Point on page 381). A recent Food Lion income statement reports a $9.5 million charge against income pertaining to the write-down of impaired assets. a. Explain why Food Lion must write down the current carrying value of its unprofitable stores. Food Lion must write down the current carrying value of its unprofitable stores because the stores are an asset that has depreciable value. The Food Lion stores are impaired plant assets in which Food Lion cannot reasonably expect to recover the costs associated with the stores. According to Williams, Haka, and Bettner if the cost of an asset cannot be recovered through future use or sale the asset should be written down to its net realizable value to a loss account. The depreciable assets must be removed from the asset account and the accumulated depreciation is removed from the related contra-asset account, as Food Lion can no longer generate any income from these stores. b. Explain why the recent $9.5 million charge to write down these impaired assets is considered a noncash expense. The $9.5 million charge to write......
