Line Noise - 953 words
Achieving a reliable Internet connection as close to 56K as possible is something every Internet user strives to achieve. However, due to line conditions and phone companies, the dream of every surfer is shattered into something reminiscent of 5 year old 33.6 technology. The general rule of thumb is that to obtain speeds greater than 33.6, one must live within 2-3 miles of the telephone company's switch box. The further out, the more degraded the connection speed becomes. Connections speeds suffer especially in rural areas and old houses where some phone wiring has not been changed since the 1950's. The phone company must maintain certain standards of line quality going to your home. However ...

A Fascist America: How Close Are We? - 1,330 words
The idea that America is turning fascist has been popular on the Left for as long as I can remember: in the 1960s, when antiwar radicals raged against the Machine, this kind of hyperbole dominated campus political discourse and even made its way into the mainstream. When the radical Weather Underground went into ultra-Left meltdown and began issuing incoherent "communiqus" to an indifferent American public, they invariably signed off by declaring: "Death to the fascist insect pig that preys on the life of the people!" Such rhetoric, too overheated for American tastes, was quite obviously an exaggeration: America in the 1960s was no more "fascistic" than miniskirts, Hula Hoops, and the rhymin ...

Robbing American Taxpayers Through Big Business - 1,333 words
For most Americans the term welfare is associated with any number of negative images: laziness, illegitimacy, family breakup, irresponsibility, and wasted tax dollars. We hear "welfare" and our minds conjure up a young unwed mother of two or three infants, huddled in front of a TV set in a public housing tenement and living at taxpayer expense on monthly Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) checks and food stamps. We react negatively because too often these checks subsidize bad behavior and encourage dependency rather than self-responsibility. The American Heritage dictionary defines welfare as "receiving regular assistance from the government or a private agency because of need." ...

Gold Standard System - 693 words
I should start by saying that until the Franco-German War of 1870-1871, Europe's currencies were based on a combined gold and silver standard (BIMETALLISM). In the Versailles Peace Treaty, France had to agree to pay 5 billion Gold Francs in reparations, over the next few years. Germany partially made use of this influx by switching from the bimetallic to a pure gold standard; most other European countries followed soon. When the world's richest goldfields were found at WITWATERSRAND near Johannesburg, in the Transvaal, sufficient gold was available to keep the standard in a period of a strongly growing world economy. The Gold Standard was kept up until 1914, when, during World War I, it coul ...

Organizational Behavior - 800 words
Executives will likely select their top management team according to the congruence they see between their own vision and the values displayed by potential applicants. For example, Frank Shrontz, the former CEO and chairman of Boeing, developed the vision behind the Boeing 777 project and reflected this vision in his subsequent staffing of the project. He envisioned an engineering process that was technologically advanced, functionally interdisciplinary, and more efficient in terms of product delivery. These goals became the basis for a new way of operating that Shrontz urged for his company. However, they were also readily apparent in the values of the executives he hired to implement this ...

Gold Standard - 645 words
No doubt that America, the country that is interested in export and import, has difficulties with future prognoses concerning foreign currency. The return to the gold standard can have influence on monetary and credit policy. The emissive bank will be deprived of independence because the emission of dollar will be tied to the gold. The gold standard, in its turn, implies free conversion of dollar to gold and vice versa. It should be taken into account that after implementation of the gold standard, further economic processes in the country will differ from those in causa fluctuating currencies. The country will definitely require global re-examination of methods of management and stimulation ...

William Sidney Mount - 626 words
The imagery of rural life played an important role in his art because Mount was a very close to this images person. His life experience made him aware of what is going on in rural areas of the state and thus he was able to express these things in the images he created. In attributing work to Mount, stylistic evidence is a paramount consideration. Equally important is the artists compilation Catalogue of Portraits and Pictures Painted by William Sidney Mount and his other papers, which together form a record of his work from 1825 to his death. From these materials and reviews of exhibitions of his work during his lifetime, the following information has been gleaned about significant paintings ...
