Scheme For Creating A Storage Database - 1,065 words
As the database team, it was our job to provide a storage facility for the other teams. We had to come up with a design that was flexible enough to handle the various types of data and yet robust enough to make searching and record lookup efficient. Since Oracle is available in the lab and is a very powerful database management system, we decided to leverage our assets and create the database on perhaps the best database server available. But before we could slap together some SQL commands we had to plan some things out first. Schema The process of building our database consisted of many phases of analysis before the actual design. We had to create an outline, and distribute it to the groups ...

Triggers supplement the standard capabilities of Oracle to provide a highly customized database management system (figure 3, page6). A trigger stored in the database can include SQL and PL/SQL statements to execute as a unit and can invoke stored procedures. Procedures and triggers differ in the way that they are invoked. A user, application, or trigger specifically executes a procedure. Triggers are basically fired by Oracle when a triggering event occurs, no matter which user is connected or which application is being used. A trigger can also call out to a C procedure, which is u ...

Nuclear Warfare - 1,275 words
The effects caused by a nuclear power accident, on the scale of the April 26, 1986 Chernobyl accident, must override any inclination to side with advocates for nuclear power. Surely we have all heard the expression Im only human. If we are indeed only human, and consequently prone to error, we could never perfectly manage and contain an energy as potentially destructive as that of nuclear power, without the possibility of a nuclear accident. Furthermore, the wastes generated by nuclear power, when inadvertently released during a nuclear power accident, have been proven to cause malignant diseases and premature death to those who come into contact with them. Additionally, the vegetation threa ...

... ws the cross-bridge to detach and re-attach to another active site on an actin molecule. This contraction cycle is repeated as long as free calcium is available to bind the troponin and ATP is available to provide the energy. The signal to stop contraction is the absence of the nerve impulse at the neuromuscular junction. When this occurs, an energy requiring calcium pump located within the sarcoplasmic reticulum begins to move the calcium back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum. This removal of calcium from troponin causes tropomyosin to move back to cover the binding sites on the actin molecule and cross-bridge interaction ceases. It is possible for skeletal muscle to exert force without ...

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 ...
