Listening to the TED talk can and will inspire people to continue to reach for their dreams and goals, and this particular TED talk give you an idea on how to reach out to people to see if they have the same drive and passion as they do to pull out all the ideas you have, and the two ideas together might change the world. The first topic that was discussed by Lauren Hodge was about grilled or fried chicken, and was grilled chicken healthier to eat. Furthermore, as Lauren continue to speak, she stated a point that although grilled chicken do contain less fat and fewer calories however, grilled chicken have a hidden danger. The second research was talked about a cure for cancer because her grandfather (Shree Bose) died due to cancer. The third research discussed by Naomi Shah was on the quality of indoor air and asthmatic patients’ because, her father and brother suffered badly from chronic allergies ("Tedtalks: Award Winning Teenage Science in Action", 2013). The topic that was discussed on grilled chicken the hidden danger was important because, Lauren wanted to find out why the chicken edges were white so as Lauren stated, that was when her idea was born. Furthermore, listening to Shree Bose research was also important because, her grandfather died of cancer. Naomi Shah research was essential also because her father and brother have had chronic allergies all year round ("Tedtalks: Award Winning Teenage Science in Action", 2013). To begin their researchers they have to find someone to was passionate as they were so Lauren Hodge found someone that would allow her to use their lab at Penn State University main Campus, and to begin Lauren had to mostly marinate and grill her chicken at home first then took it to the lab where she would use the equipment to extract the chemicals…...

Comparative Research on the Development and Implementation of Philippine Health Information Systems

...Evaluating computerised health information systems (Health professionals should be closely involved in implementation)Joel Ladner Editor—Littlejohns et al identified the reasons for failure to implement a hospital information system in South Africa,1 but they do not emphasise the need for health professionals to be closely involved. In 1997 we conducted a field test of prototype tools and information flows over six months, with the overall goal of developing a computerised health information system at the three university teaching hospitals (totalling 1500 beds) in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. In each hospital the system was managed by a team from the administrative department, without a hospital doctor or trained epidemiologist. Before the field test, in five voluntary clinical departments in each hospital, administrative staff underwent intensive training for three weeks. Project presentation workshops with clinicians and nurses were organised in all hospitals, and a ministry of health supervisory team (epidemiologists) was responsible for technical implementation and follow up. After six months the assessment showed a major failure in implementing the system for three main reasons: * Heavy administrative workload generated by management's inadequate medical and epidemiological education * Limited involvement of medical teams, possibly because of the responsibilities attributed to the administrative departments * Difficulty perceived among practitioners of......

Gathering Information and Writing a Research Paper

...Gathering Information and Writing a Research Paper Writing a research paper for the first time can be a difficult task if not given the proper instruction to complete such an assignment. Breaking a research paper down into separate tasks and sections might ease frustrations for the researcher and give them some fundamental tools for future research projects. A good question to ask your self is “Where do I begin my research?” Some students that are tasked with writing a research paper for the first time might struggle with the topic that they will choose depending on the writing assignment given to them by the instructor. Generally, one main topic can be concentrated on is based off of a research question the student must be able to answer or expound upon described in the course syllabus. Within the syllabus the instructor should have provided several topics to begin the research. Also the instructor should point out what format he or she is requiring, according to a rubric within the syllabus, to be turned in such as APA, MLA or Chicago. Once an individual has selected a topic that he or she would like to discuss, it’s time to begin looking for the facts. There are numerous resources at your disposal when you conduct your research such as the library, The Internet, and. You have to decide which source is likely to be most useful to you. For example, if you are searching for information on a historical event the library is an reliable place to find a book that...

This paper describes work carried out as part of the Economic and Social Research Council’s Virtual Society? Research Programme and presents some initial developments in the field of spatial decision support systems (SDSS) on the World Wide Web (WWW). Particular attention is paid to the development of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and webbased SDSS with the principal aim of increasing public involvement in environmental decision-making. Discussion focuses on public access issues and the implications for online approaches to public participation. Examples of three online SDSS are given covering local, regional and national scale case studies. 1. Introduction The rise of the Internet and the WWW has created many opportunities for those involved in GIS and decision support research. In the last few years many GIS have appeared on the WWW giving the general public, or at least those with a connection to it, access to both GIS and spatial data. With this increased availability, previous criticism of GIS as an elitist technology voiced by Pickles [6] may no longer be valid. We are now beginning to witness the popularising of GIS, at least...

Information Systems and Accounting Research

...author of “A Design Science Research Methodology and Its Application to Accounting Information Systems Research,” asserts most of research currently conducted in the accounting information systems (AIS) and information systems (IS) areas focuses on understanding why things work the way they do, also known as “natural science (Geerts, 2011).” The primary goal of the paper was to introduce the design science research methodology (DSRM) into accounting information systems (AIS) literature by discussing the DSRM, applying the DSRM to different AIS design science papers, and then integrating the DSRM as part of the operational AIS literature (Geerts, 2011). “Currently, integration is increasingly needed in the business environment. This need emerges from the efficiency and synergy requirements necessary in a complex and turbulent environment. In other words, integration is needed to facilitate coordination, which is again related to the building of competitive advantage.” (Granlund & Malmi, 2002, p. 305). Detail Geerts’ introduction gives definitions and history of the concept of DSRM and AIS so that the reader may transition along with the article. There is discussion of each methodology giving the history and the science behind it and then he moves into how the application of DSRM was discussed in the AIS area. According to Geerts the DSRM has three objectives and aims at improving the production, presentation, and evaluation of design science research while being......

Accounting Information Systems Research Paper

...Accounting Information Systems Research Paper Abstract The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) was enacted into law in 2002 in the wake of corporation financial reporting scandals involving large publicly held companies. SOX instituted new strict financial regulations with the intent of improving accounting practices and protecting investors from corporate misconduct. SOX requires corporate executives to vouch for the accuracy of financial statements, and to institute and monitor effective internal controls over financial reporting. The cost of implementing an effective internal control structure are onerous, and SOX inflicts opportunity costs upon an enterprise as executives have become more risk adverse due to fears of incrimination. The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) was created by SOX to oversee the accounting process and dictate independence requirements for auditors and auditing committees. The PCAOB proposed regulations must be approved by the SEC before they are enacted. Since the passage of SOX, the IT department has become critical in designing and implementing the internal controls in company accounting information systems. The Information Technology Governance Institute (ITGI) created a framework called Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT) to provide guidance for companies to implement and monitor IT governance.

Survey Research Methodology in Management Information Systems: an Assessment

...ABSTRACT Survey research is believed to be well understood and applied by MIS scholars. It has been applied for several years, it is well defined, and it has precise procedures which, when followed closely,yield valid and easily interpretable data. Our assessment of the use of survey research in the MIS field between 1980 and 1990 indicates that this perception is at odds with reality. Our analysis indicates that survey methodology is often misapplied and is plagued by five important weaknesses: (1) single method designs where multiple methods are needed, (2) unsystematic and often inadequate sampling procedures,(3) low response rates, (4) weak linkages between units of analysis and respondents, and (5) over reliance on cross-sectional surveys where longitudinal surveys are really needed. Our assessment also shows thatthe quality of survey research varies considerably among studies of different purposes: explanatory studies are of good quality overall, exploratory and descriptive studies are of moderate to poor quality.This article presents a general framework for classifying and examining survey research and uses this framework to assess, review and critique the usage of survey research conducted in the past decade in the MIS field. In an effort to improve the quality of survey research, this article makes specific recommendations that directly address the major problems highlighted in the review. INTRODUCTION Science may be said to progress on its methods. The production...

Research Information and Technology

...TO A NURSING ISSUE OF YOUR CHOICE, DISCUSS THE RELEVANCE OF NURSING RESEARCH TO PRACTICE The nursing issue the author will be discussing with its relevance to nursing research in practice is violence and aggression. In order to understand the research in to the topic we must first define the word research. MaCleod Clark and Hockey cited in Smith and Hunt (1997) defined research as “an attempt to increase the body of knowledge, i.e. what is currently known about nursing by discovery of new facts and relationships trough a process of systematic enquiry.” Whereas others have defined research as “the acquisition of knowledge, which includes gaining information and illumination as well as translating it (research) directly into policy or practice” Department of Health (DOH) (1993) cited in Smith and Hunt (1997). Both definitions are linked by the fact that they are both trying to gain new facts and information to be able to change nursing practice for the better. Research in nursing has undergone many changes and developments over the years. It was Florence Nightingale who first started to research in order to improve the standard of nursing care given. “Her concepts have contributed to and are congruent with the present priorities of nursing research. Nightingale believed that the systematic collection and exploration of data were necessary for nursing” LoBiondo-Wood and Haber (1994). Nursing research done in the early half of the twentieth century mainly focused on......

Research Paper About Management Information System

...Management Information Systems - Westminster College - Fulton, Missouri  Why Study Management Information Systems (MIS) at Westminster? * Our MIS program builds on the strengths of our Business and Computer Sciences offerings as well as our liberal arts education.  Classes blend theory and practice in “hot” areas—issues and technologies that researchers and practitioners are currently interested in. * Each class is uniquely designed for Westminster, in response to recent scholarly findings and rising trends in the field. * Courses are not technology driven, though technology is adequately integrated into the major.  Therefore, students never have to play catch-up with technology that is imposed externally.  Instead, all discussions are driven by business strategy and user needs.  * Majors become user and data advocates who understand that the most critical elements of an information system are not hardware and software, but the people and information. * Dr. Phelps, who designed and implemented the major, has degrees and research, and consulting experience in all of the relevant fields of MIS: business, decision science, computer science, and information technology.  So, “knowing a little about a lot” allows her to see the best benefits of these synergies and bring those synergies into the classroom. Major Highlights In your formal MIS studies, you will learn organized approaches to gathering, processing, and presenting information, in order to improve...
