Ada Augusta Lovelace

Ada Augusta Lovelace
In a world that is dominated by men, there were few women who could stand up and be noticed in the earlier years. In the early nineteenth century, Ada Augusta Byron Lovelace, made herself known among the world of men and her work still influences today's world. She is considered the "Mother of Computer Programming" and the "Enchantress of Numbers." The world of computers began with the futuristic knowledge of Charles Babbage and Lady Lovelace. She appeared to know more about Babbage's work of the Analytical Engine than he himself knew. During the time of Lovelace's discoveries, women were just beginning to take part in the scientific world, although the attitude towards women and education was that women should not exceed or match that of a male. It was also believed that women who studied extensively would become extremely ill and eventually die. Lovelace was driven to the world of men by her passion and love for mathematics. Her upbringing, her search for more knowledge, her love for mathematics and her incredible inherited wiring abilities bought to life what we know today as computer programming or computer science.

Babbage Charles

Babbage Charles
Charles Babbage was born at Walworth, Surrey England in December 26,1791. He achieved many great feats and belonged to many very distinguished groups before he died in October 18, 1871. Many people consider him to be the grandfather of computer science due to his great works with his Difference Engine (1821), which printed tables of polynomials, and his Analytical Engine (1856), which was intended as a general symbol manipulator.

Problem Solution: TeraTech

Problem Solution: TeraTech
Currently the dominant player in a new arena, TeraTech a leader in the pharmaceutical industry, is a fiver year-old Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions provider. This CRM concept is relatively new, and its basic function is to help develop a complete picture of the industry customers, then evaluating those relationships across products and services.
The purpose of this paper is to first identify the different issues and opportunities that TeraTech is facing, and to discuss the various alternatives that could help them solve their problems. The ultimate solution of course, would be to help TeraTech reach an effective process by which they establish customer satisfaction and customer loyalty, through efficient customer service. Successfully doing this will bring an increase in sales and profits, and help maintain a level of satisfactory customer relationships.

Computer Networks

Computer Networks
Computer networks like internet necessitate network resources, i.e. bandwidth, buffer spaces, etc in order to accommodate the arriving packets at router buffers [25]. When the arriving packets cannot be accommodated due to lack of network resources, this indicates occurring congestion at router buffers of networks [21]. Congestion can deteriorate a network performance [22, 25] through growing the packet loss probability due to overflow as well as the mean waiting time for packets in the queueing network. In addition, congestion may reduce the throughput and increase the packet dropping probability precedes the router buffers have overflowed.

Legal Education In The Us

Legal Education In The Us
There is no undergraduate law degree in the United States; thus, students cannot
expect to study law without first completing an undergraduate degree. Basic
admissions requirements for American law schools are a Bachelor's degree in any
field and the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). The American law degree is
called the Juris Doctor (JD) and usually requires three years of study. The JD
program involves courses in American common and statute law as well as
international and business law. Overseas students who are considering an
American JD should note that this program focuses on preparation for US legal
practice. Undergraduate Preparation for Law School

Women, Work And Public Policy

Women, Work And Public Policy
Gender and the market are both concepts that carry tremendous power to shape society. Indeed, these institutions are so powerful within society that they can seem invisible and immutable. Each of these influential constructs has become the lens through which a theoretical approach defines and analyzes the world: feminist theory centering on gender, and economic theory centering on the market. Such a primary focus enables each theory to function as an invaluable tool in clarifying complex interactions. On the flip side, however, such a lens can also obscure the ability to enlarge understanding beyond that initial analysis. In this way, the strength of focus can become a weakness, setting one analytical approach as exclusively paramount, and inherently discrediting other approaches. This has often been the case with the disparate economic and feminist approaches to analyzing work and gender.

Office Automation And Group Collaboration Software

Office Automation And Group Collaboration Software
Our group of three within Global Discovery Chemistry at a large Pharmaceutical Company was tasked with implementing a unique and innovative way in which high throughput parallel chemical synthesis could be performed by the traditional bench chemists. Building off the deployment of a new collaborative software system, the Electronic Notebook (ELN) by CambridgeSoft Corporation, our job was to identify a way to develop a back-end system which links the chemist?s notebook to automated synthesis in the Lab. The new Electronic Notebook was established in order to replace existing paper notebooks, making it possible for chemists across the globe to view and otherwise copy, duplicate, or build off experiments of others. The back end platform is custom developed within our group and links to the notebook, by a series of table views, to read inputs and fully automate the process in which parallel chemistry is performed in the Robotics Laboratory. This paper will discuss the collaborative ELN software, as well as the back end custom application for linking the chemist to the Laboratory Automation.

American Renaissance

American Renaissance
The American Renaissance period, circa 1876-1917, heralded a new sense of nationalism with a pride linking to a spirit akin to Greek democracy, the rule of Roman law, and a cultural and educational reform movement often referred to as Renaissance humanism. This American nationalism focused on the expression of modernism, technology, and academic classicism. Renaissance technological advancements include wire cables supporting the Brooklyn Bridge in the State of New York, along with cultural advancements found in the Prairie School houses, Beaux-Arts Institute of Design in architecture and sculpture. The political heir of American nationalism evolved with the Gilded Age and New Imperialism school of thought. The American Renaissance produced major influential literary works from some of the most brilliant minds in U.S. history, including Ralph Waldo Emerson's the "Representative Man (1850)", Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlett Letter (1850)" and "The House of Seven Gables (1851)," Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick," Henry David Thoreau's "Walden (1854)," and Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass (1855)."

Management vs Leadership

Management vs Leadership
Is there a difference between managers and leaders? To me, the answer is, Yes!. After researching articles about the differences between managers and leaders I concluded that my current work environment, which employs two principals, leans towards more managerial than leadership qualities. There is always the opportunity to become a manager, but becoming a leader takes a certain kind of higher learning and understanding in order to be practiced effectively
