Stated differently, businesses must design the processes customers will use to conduct E-commerce transactions from a customer prospective. In other words, your business processes must support the customers needs, not merely your business needs. Many of the technologies noted above can provide customers with the ability to initiate and complete transactions on their own. They should be allowed to do so. When customers can complete most transactions using technology, midd ...

A high-level programming language developed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Labs in the mid 1970s. Although originally designed as a systems programming language, C has proved to be a powerful and flexible language that can be used for a variety of applications, from business programs to engineering. C is a particularly popular language for personal computer programmers because it is relatively small -- it requires less memory than other languages. The first major program written in C was the UNIX operating system, and for many years C was considered to be inextricably linked with UNIX. Now, however, C is an important language independent of UNIX. Although it is a high-level language, C is much cl ...

Eleven million gallons of North Slope oil spewed into one of the most bountiful marine ecosystems in the world, killing birds, marine mammals, fish, and devastating the ecosystem.

Stephen Lacy, acting director of Michigan State University's School of Journalism in East Lansing said through the coverage of the Kennedy tragedy, he saw, "a bigger disconnect between the press and the public. It was a bit of overkill, especially on television." He went on to say that "The media have not quite realized that overplaying does not help their credibility, but continues to show examples of the news industry exploiting a tragedy in a push to stem a 20-year slide in ratings, readers, and credibility ...

Gun Control Misc - 933 words
"I say all guns are good guns. There are no bad guns. I say the whole nation should be an armed nation. Period. This rather bold statement was made by Joseph Foss, former Governor, and current President of the NRA, or National Rifle Association (Lacayo 16). I could not disagree more. The NRA is a special interest group known by many. As a lobbyist organization, the NRA has a current main objective of protecting American citizens' rights, to possess and operate a firearm, form being violated by gun control laws. The same laws that 69 percent of the public support laws pushing for the stronger control of handguns and assault weapons (Gunfree). One of the NRA's main weapons in this crusade is t ...

... ve drugs. The Addiction Research Center Inventory, an empirically derived test designed to measure the subjective effects of addictive drugs, detects the mood-elevating effects of psychomotor stimulants and opiates on the same scale (see Haertzen and Hickey 1987). On the other hand, the subjective-effects of these two drug classes can be easily distinguished. This is not surprising considering that ex-addicts report a preference for heroin over morphine (Martin and Fraser 1961), even though heroin is rapidly converted to morphine after entering the brain (Jaffe and Martin 1975). This drug preference is probably related to pharmacokinetic differences in these two compounds which may produ ...

How Do Americans View One Another? The Persistence of Racial/Ethnic Stereotypes In national surveys, fewer and fewer Americans admit openly to holding racist viewsfor instance the view that African Americans are less intelligent than white Americans. Many polls have attempted to measure racial and ethnic stereotyping by presenting declarative statements of negative attributions and asking respondents to agree or disagree with them. Whether they may hold these views or not, many survey respondents don't want to appear obviously racist and will therefore disagree with blatantly racist statements.

At first that was fine because they were beginning to explore who they were, but there is a point where there is nothing more to say, you have told everything and now everyone is having the same views and feelings. In the end it lead some writers to produce works that were not up to the quality of work that they and others around them were used to. The Harlem Renaissance reached a natural end but was able to further other developments in the 1930s and further in the future. The single accomplishment of the Harlem Re ...
