...1. We think that there should be a minimum education requirement for the meter reader job, at least a high school diploma holder, as it is for the purpose of the company to have good communication skills and well-educated meter reader workers. On the other hand, for meter reader workers with high school diploma holder allows themselves to have opportunity to be promoted or benefit on further education in the future. Also, with high school diploma certificate increase the employment possibilities where minimum education provided to fill in their job with specific skills that enables them to start as soon as possible on their job whereas its helps employer to reduce the cost on training and development. 2. Basically, Sam’s effort to upgrade the people in the organization is really good changes for the company in the future. On the contrary, Judy already had difficulties in keeping the 37 meter reader position filled as the pay $8.00/hr was high for an unskilled worker in the area, in addition there isn’t have the job required the employees to work on weekends too and she is thinking ways maintain the job applicants with high school diploma certificate for the company. If Sam insisted that Judy take on the changes would cause those current meter reader workers with high school diploma holder facing unemployment. Furthermore, it makes Judy re-changes hers idea on how to attract and employ those meter reader workers with college degree and also the salaries for the new......

The 2000 Meter Row
...Case study: The 2000-Meter Row: A Case in Homeostasis Study Questions- At the start: #1. What is responsible for raising Jim's heart and respiratory rate and stimulating sweat just before the race? When the race is almost ready to begin, Jim's nervous system sends signals to his heart causing his respiratory rate to increase. Since Jim's heart and respiratory rate increases this causes him to breathe more rapidly and causes him to sweat to maintain a normal body temperature. #2. Why is the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system active just before the race? When Jim is about to start the race he feels the pressure and the stress of having to do his best which makes his autonomic nervous system more active due to the stresses he is facing. #3. What changes do you think are occurring in the digestive and urinary system at this time? When Jim's stress level rises his digestive system feedback starts to occur. Changes in Jim's urinary system are occurring due to him sweating. Since Jim body is stressed because of the race, his Kidneys are working harder. Kidneys play a major role in the urinary system which control a lot of your body functions such as electrolytes, water, and acid-base balances in the body. #4. What is happening to Jim's blood glucose levels just before the race? Since Jim has been constantly sweating, this causes dehydration at the beginning of the race. Jim has been sweating profusely which caused his glucose level to drop. #5. Why is......

...neighboring Mitchell County. This expansion concerned Judy. The company workforce had increased by 30 percent the previous year, and Judy had struggled to recruit enough qualified job applicants. She knew that new expansion would intensify the problem. Judy is particularly concerned about meter readers. The tasks required in meter reading are relatively simple. A person drives to homes served by the company, finds the gas or electric meter, and records its current reading. If the meter has been tampered with, it is reported. Otherwise, no decision making of any consequence is associated with the job. The reader performs no calculations. The pay was $8.00 per hour, high for unskilled work in the area. Even so, Judy had been having considerable difficulty keeping the 37 meter reader positions filled. Judy was thinking about how to attract more job applicants when she received a call from the human resource director, Sam McCord. “Judy,” Sam Said “I’m unhappy with the job specification calling for only a high school education for meter readers. In planning for the future, we need better-educated people in the company. I’ve decided to change the education requirement for the meter reader job from a high school diploma to a college degree”. “But, Mr. McCord,” protested Judy, “the company is growing rapidly. If we are to have enough people to fill those jobs we just can’t insist that college graduates get paid to do such basic tasks. I don’t see how we can meet our......

...the norm. Percussion instruments became prominent and numerous, reflecting the interest in unusual rhythms and tone colors. Harmony brought changes to in the way chords were treated. The traditional relationship between consonance and dissonance was challenged. New chord structures were created such as the polychord, the fourth chord, and the tone cluster. Alternatives to the traditional tonal system, known as tonality or key, governed the organization of pitch. Use of scales other than major and minor and chords other than triad were used as the central tone. Rhythm drew it new ideas from jazz, folk music from all over the world, and older European art music from the Middle Ages through the 19th century. Rapidly changing meters the use of unconventional meters was also characteristic of music of the 20th century. It also brought forward the use of polyrhythm and rhythmic repetition; ostinato.

...! Prof. Laffont! ENC1101! Oct 9, 2014! ! Three Key Aspects in John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row Cannery Row was written by John Steinbeck in 1945. The story takes place in Monterey, California sometime between the Great Depression and World War II. The story is based on “his non-teleological acceptance of what ‘is,’ his ecological vision, and his own memories of a street and the people who made it home” (Shillinglaw vii). Steinbeck lived during the Great Depression and his experience affected the tone within the story. Steinbeck chose to write using third person narrative within the story which is an omniscient point of view- this allows the reader to know what the characters are thinking and feeling. The author wrote this story for the soldiers entertainment throughout battle. Steinbeck uses a unique style to construct this novel by periodically incorporating anecdotes and vignettes within the book, which allows the author to paint a overall picture in the reader’s mind of the reality of this time period. The major aspects within Cannery Row are loneliness, suicide and the development of characters. In the story Cannery Row, loneliness can be considered a major aspect of this book. Loneliness describes many of the characters in this narrative- especially the character Doc. Although Doc is much loved by his peers and has many friends, he is lonely. He spends most of his time listening to music on the phonograph. The text explains that “'He was a dark and lonesome looking......

Transformation in Skid Row
...Transformation in Skid Row Skid row in Los Angeles, California, is home to the highest concentrations of homeless people in the United States. Located in LA’s industrial zone, the area has welcomed and ‘housed’ homeless individuals for centuries. The history of how this site has come to be started back in the 1870’s and has been evolving ever since. Skid row is a vital part of LA’s history and culture and will continue to evolve with the city. An important part of any landscape is function. Function is the purpose of any landscape and exists for a reason. Mitchell stated in his new axioms for reading the landscape that, “landscapes exist for a reason (Mitchell 2007, 35).” This axiom presents the idea that everything in the landscape had a purpose at one point in time. Landscapes transform and change over time in order to meet the purposes of the residents of the landscape. An example of this is skid row in LA. Although this area of LA might seem like a dump, at one point in time it had a function and its function and purpose has evolved with time. Skid row is located in the industrial zone of LA with close proximity to the central business district. This location is unusual for a center for homeless people for many reasons, but looking back at history has an explanation. When workers first arrived in LA they arrived by railroad (Skid Row Journal). A hub for seasonal and migrant workers formed near the railroad line creating skid row. In lecture a chart was......

...Prepaid Energy Meter (AT89S52) A scheme of Electricity billing system called "PREPAID ENERGY METER WITH TARIFF INDICATOR" can facilitate in improved cash flow management in energy utilities and can reduces problem associated with billing consumer living in isolated area and reduces deployment of manpower for taking meter readings. Every consumer can buy a memory card (is nothing but an EEPROM IC) with a password stored inside it using a MC program. The memory card is available at various ranges (ie. Rs 50, Rs 100, Rs 200 etc).In our project we have given the name for memory card as smart card. When the consumer insert a smart card into the card reader which is connected kit.Then the card reader will read the stored information and delete the information from the EEPROM IC(smart card) using the MC program. So that the smart card cannot be reused by others. Suppose if a consumer buy a card for Rs.50/- he / she can insert this amount through the card reader so that prepaid energy meter with tariff indicator kit will be activated. According to the power consumption the amount will be reduced. When the amount is over, the relay will automatically shutdown the whole system. In our project we also have a provision to give an alarm sound to consumer before the whole amount is reduced. You can also find the Card programmer circuit and program from the download. So that you can easily create your own cards. Here's the procedure to create the cards. How to program a new card. For......

...pH meter: Vital tool for food processing A pH meter is defined as a device that measures the pH level of a liquid solution by means of knowing the voltage amount of two electrodes submerged in a solution. The use of this tool is never new to us. It is commonly utilized in science laboratory activities in school to know the acidity and basicity of household materials people see everyday. However, our perception of its application is only limited by the idea that pH meters are mere “laboratory equipment” used in school. Many overlook its importance especially in food production. People, who consume food everyday do not know that these “mere tools”, called pH meters, are vitally needed in the food processing industries. How are pH meters used in food processing? Knowing the pH level and monitoring it all throughout the process of food manufacturing is a critical step in maintaining the production of high-quality foods. Making sure that the proper pH range is achieved during the physical and chemical reactions undergone by the food in the whole duration of the process is vital. Improper interpretation of pH tests can cause a huge drawback in the production of food. Incorrect measurement of pH level in jelly production for an instance, affects the consistency of the jelly and thus the product quality as a whole. Yogurt production, as an example, is generally dependent on the pH level for if ever, the proper pH level is not reached, discoloration (Yogurt becoming yellow)......

...Topic: Russell 2000 The Russell 2000 index measures the performance of the 2,000 smallest companies in the Russell 3000 index. To best understand what the Russell index is it is easiest to start off understanding what the Russell 3000 index is. It is the stock index consisting of the 3000 largest publicly listed U.S. companies, representing about 98% of the total capitalization of the entire U.S. stock market. This index is not quite as popular as the Dow Jones or the S&P 500 but still plays a large role in providing a snapshot of how well the U.S. economy is preforming by valuing demand interest in shares of the largest publically traded companies. It all started in Tacoma Washington 1984 when this firm started a group of index to measure U.S market segments and to better track the performance of investment managers. This index was further divided into smaller sub segments such as the Russell 1000, Russell 2000, and the Russell 3000. The top 3,000 stocks (those of the 3,000 largest companies) make up the broad-market Russell 3000 Index. The top 1,000 of those companies make up the large-cap Russell 1000 Index, and the bottom 2,000 (the smallest companies) make up the small-cap Russell 2000 Index. One question that does not usually get answered is what happens to the indices and how frequently they change. Russell changes its indices once each year in June, called "reconstitution". The reconstitution consists of going through the global list of investable stocks and...
