Social Interface - 985 words
In the introduction of the book of Norman Long, Battlefields of Knowledge, Long states that theoretical and the application itself cannot be segregated into their respective venues. His book takes a different perspective specifically by not discriminating between the knowledge of understanding and knowledge of action. Longs book assumes that the theoretical and the pragmatic issues are so intimately entwined that it would be like separating melted ice from your coke. Long stresses that we must work on an actor-oriented approach where we can base new types of theorization and methodologies. The proposed model suggests that a theoretical technique be developed to take into account the actions ...

City - 1,332 words
Cities exist for many reasons and the diversity of urban form and function can be traced to the complex roles that cities perform. Cities serve as centers of storage, commerce, and industry. The agricultural surplus from the surrounding country hinterland is processed and distributed within the city. Urban areas have also developed around marketplaces, where imported goods from distant places could be exchanged for the local products. Throughout history, cities have been founded at the intersections of transportation routes, or at points where market goods must shift from one mode of transportation to another such as river or ocean ports as well as railways. Cities are also sites of enormous ...

The female subjects of the study are as equally marginalized as their male counterparts. However, the fact of their gender disenfranchises them further from the mainstream societies and its benefits. It is noted than less than one-third of the impoverished mothers of El Barrio receive public assistance. Female heads of impoverished households must supplement their meager checks in order to keep their children alive and thus are likely to engage in the informal economy though in not the obviously illegal ventures of many ...

The Reorganization Of Hewlett Pakcard - 533 words
This organizational structure, though very effective in the 1960s and 1970s, didnt fair well during the early 1980s. The organization was highly decentralized with the divisions operating much like independent businesses. The organization failed to address the need for overall coordination. Autonomy had resulted in some overlapping products, customers complained that products developed in one HP division were not compatible with those from other divisions. The companys position in the personal computer market, was threatened by a lack of cohesive effort among three geographically separated divisions, and so it was time for a change. There were two main phases in the reorganization at HP in t ...

Although DOS had cornered the PC market, UNIX was still dominant on the larger workstations. The birth of UNIX in 1969 provided the world with its first modern operating system. An interactive multi-user operating system, UNIX was initially developed by programmers for their own use. Working for Bell Laboratories, Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie created UNIX as an operating system for the PDP-7 computer. Designed as a simplification of an operating system named Multics, UNIX was developed in Assembly language, a pri ...

Structured Design - 984 words
Structured Design is a method to convert an ``informal specification'' including a set of data flow diagrams and process specifications into a design that could be implemented using a language like Pascal or C. It was developed by Edward Yourdon and Larry Constantine, reportedly by examining a number of systems that had been developed in the 1960's that were regarded as good design examples, and identifying common features and patterns that they contained. Structured Design does not produce designs that have a number of desirable properties: It doesn't take advantage of the newer features provided by object-oriented programming languages. While structured design provides some limited suppor ...

How Will We Use Tomorrows Pcs - 1,403 words
Tomorrow's PCs are going to be different in many ways; they will be more powerful, they will include more facilities for multimedia, and looking further ahead, they may have features such as three dimensional displays, or wrap around virtual reality. These changes will shape the way which we use our PCs, but even without such advances, there are changes that can and will take place in the operating systems that enable us to make better use of PCs. I would like to focus here on some of the changes that I believe are desirable. So what is wrong with today's operating systems ? Plenty. Whereas the hardware for today's desk top PCs has advanced at an ever increasing pace, the operating systems h ...
