In the fast pace world we live in today, when potential customers come to our website we want to make sure they return to use the website again. There are several items that must be addressed in P.O.D. e-Commerce Business to customer website one of is to have repeat customers is performance and service. ?A site must be efficiently designed for ease of access, shopping, and buying, with sufficient server power and network capacity to support website traffic? (O?Brien & Marakas, 2007, p. 294). Some thing that will need to be addressed is how big the server should be that will be used to power the site. If we anticipate our site to have a high volume of customers, we will need to decide how many customers our server handles before it crashes. No matter what we do to increase our site?s performance, we will face the reality of what the customer perceives as high performance and efficiency. With this site, we will have to continue to stay on the cutting edge of technology to keep our customers coming back to our site. P.O.D. wants consumers to come to our site and navigate quickly through their selections in building their cellular phones.

Outlines of a Value Typology Based on Decision Theory's Social Motives

Outlines of a Value Typology Based on Decision Theory's Social Motives
Several years ago, I outlined a project to delineate ideological and scientific elements of our knowledge about values. I began by studying the typical configurations of values, their typical collisions, and some typical world-view-related standpoints as theoretical background. I now present the theoretical premises of my inquiry, the applied methods, and some of the results. I have tried to support the choice of variables used, make sensible the reliable limits of the findings, and underline some interconnections as well as some collisions between moral and/or ideological standpoints.

Excel Spreadsheet Use and the Strategic Corporate Plan

Excel Spreadsheet Use and the Strategic Corporate Plan
In years past, every well-run corporation undoubtedly had a written
business plan. Oftentimes, these plans were considered by many to be an
exercise in frustration, as they were laboriously considered, written,
then stored on the company?s library shelf until the next business
planning cycle. The last few decades have seen a radical change in the
way companies do their planning. More often than not, the ?old?
business plan ? though still produced and of value in its own right -
is given less attention than the newer Strategic Plan. Unlike the
Business Plan, which tends to be a very short document, the Strategic
Plan is likely to be much more substantial and detailed. The Business
Plan provides the foundation and framework for the Strategic Plan.1

Mondrian

Mondrian
" ?Everything was spotless white, like a laboratory. In a light smock, with his clean-shaven face, taciturn, wearing his heavy glasses, Mondrian seemed more a scientist or priest than an artist. The only relief to all the white were large matboards, rectangles in yellow, red and blue, hung in asymmetric arrangements on all the walls. Peering at me through his glasses, he noticed my glance and said: "I?ve arranged these to make it more cheerful."?

The Battle of the Somme as a Victory for the British

The Battle of the Somme as a Victory for the British
This investigation seeks to evaluate the level of success for the British in the Battle of the Somme in 1916 and analyse whether this battle was really a ?victory? for the British or not. The main body of this investigation outlines what happened to the British army in The Battle of the Somme in 1916, with references to many sources. The battle is then analysed to see to extent was it a victory for the British and to what extent it wasn?t, with importance on the country and the army. Two of the sources used in this essay, The Western Front and The First Day of the Somme, are then evaluated in detail in terms of their origins, purpose, value and limitations. For evaluating ?victory?, many aspects are considered. These include a comparison between the objectives of Britain before the battle and the results itself, the number of casualties on both sides, etc.

Anselm's Existence of God Refuted

Anselm's Existence of God Refuted
If the only proofs for the existence of God were Aquinas?s five ways and Anselm?s ontological argument, in my opinion, Anselm provides the best reasoning. I am not saying that Anselm?s argument is good, or even valid, but just that given the set of proofs by Aquinas and Anselm, Anselm?s is better.
Anselm argues, in effect, that the existence of God is built into the very concept of God. He proceeds by a form of argument called reductio ad absurdum ? reduction to absurdity. He attempts to show that the position of the fool ? the non-believer who has said in his heart, ?There is no God? ? is incoherent and leads to absurdity.
