The title itself brings intrigue to me, with a mix of confusion. If I have to depend on my own thought in discussing this topic, I’d feel helpless, so I try to reflect on the topic phrase by phrase and along with how the perception of different people has onto it. I have come up with the basic understanding that. Man has a hunger for seeking truth, and undiscovered truth. In its generalized way, whether it be in what lies beyond the universe, what human ingenuity contains of at the current era or simply the truths, facts that lies in this earth that are yet to be known to man.
Digging onto the depths of philosophy, from the construction of the very first School of thought, to the continuous expansion of human intelligence up to date, I think it wouldn’t be enough to say that “Man has made a long way, with all these technologies and new mindsets attained” Like how much people still fought with counter-attack for cancer, aids and other diseases that wiped out a fraction of the world’s population, or even in possible twisted and complicated perceptions of the things that are both within and out of our reach. We just couldn’t keep our hands off from discovering new things.
It very much gives me an illustration of man, flying into space to discover extra terrestrial entities, as how astronomers from the renaissance period have come up with theories, and the never ending argument of the creation of the universe, once stating that the earth was flat and years later claiming that it wasn’t flat. It was round, and when Nicolaus Copernicus had theorized that the sun was the center of the universe. And NASA up to this date, keep on conducting space explorations to discover other galaxies, stars, and possible life forms that cease to exist outside the planet. We tend to cross the boundary of what we learn from one thing, going to another.
If I were to visualize this avenue of…...

Which gets used often depends on which material the orthopedics company started with, which was grandfathered in. Companies generally don't change those kinds of preferences." New technologies are being developed that will do an even better job at promoting bone ingrowth, McCracken added. This in turn is prompting firms such as Reading Alloys to develop new powders that are more compatible with these processes. "Several medical companies are developing new porous coatings for implants that promote and increase bone ingrowth and reduce bone shielding effects by the use of titanium-based foams or scaffolds," he explained. "Today's technology works by plasmaspraying the powder onto the implant. New technologies will not require plasma spraying. They will result in a higher level of porosity. And that will make the implants much closer to the strength of the bone and reduce the amount of bone shielding that occurs. If you can reduce bone shielding, the life of the implant increases. The scaffolding technology requires a finer particle size distinction. So we are developing new powders to aid those developments." Also, he noted, "metal injection molding is being used for very small dental implants. Putting Sintering titanium hydride powder in another form through the sintering process also allows the implant to achieve higher density, which leads to improved......

The Unknown Economy

...Regulations 6.46)I confirm that I adhere to the School’s Policy on plagiarism.  | The Unknown Economy Student Number: Supervisor: Degree Programme: BSc (Hons) Business and Management (Accounting) Department: Brunel Business School Date Submitted: 8th March 2012 Word Count: 7823 Abstract The rise in activity within the unknown economy in the middle of a global financial crisis is of no surprise to economists and researches. The majority of research is focused on defining the unknown economy, size, causes, and effects of government policies on unknown economic activities. However no evidence exists which focuses on any particular group within society hence this quantitative study examines the student population within Brunel University to determine the size, causes, ethical attitudes of respondents in regards to the unknown economy. Furthermore perceptions regarding policies are discussed which could be adopted to help reduce unknown economic activity. The study shows significant difference in perceptions towards the causes of the unknown economy and policies, which should be adopted to reduce the unknown economy. However the findings confirm morality and attitudes held by respondents in this study to that of existing literature. Furthermore additional findings concluded the existence of strong associations between ethnicity, gender, participation and demand of unknown economic activities.

Truth and Reality; Are They Mere Mind Created ?

...Truth and Reality: Are our versions mere mind-created, or real ? Can we ever distinguish actual reality from the synthetic models that mind create ? Or, can we ever know any reality other than what our minds create ? If we clinically analyse the total contents of our mind, we will find that it is a mix of many things that we consider as real, and equal number of things that we know as mere manufactured products of we,or that of the human community in general.  What we naively consider as real are objects and relations that we have seen, heard, touched,tasted or smelt. We had learned this criterion of assessing reality from our primeval days when mind was not developed to perceive anything beyond what were just in-front the sense-organs. Animals are still in worlds of reality. Now, man's this category of reality also consists the various scientific facts,that we believe, our prestigious men of science must have either directly observed through their special instruments, or inferred over strong evidences they must have collected through their various false-proof methods. For example, the moon-rocks are real because NASA has its samples displayed at their facilities, or it is Sun there at the center of solar system, and earth and other planets are revolving around it. We believe that Science has adequate proof of these real physical facts. Though these scientific facts are quite different from the reality of a horse or a mountain that we actually see, we......

Conflict of the Known vs the Unknown

...CONFLICT OF THE KNOWN Vs THE UNKNOWN The novel What is the What by Dave Eggers depicts the struggle of the Lost Boys during the second civil war in Sudan. Egger writes the book for Valentino Achak Deng, a Lost Boy, who gives us a first hand account of the brutal experiences that the boys encountered. On reading the book, it was very touching, because every incident was carefully described with emotion, and gave us an insight into various conflicts that Achak himself faced. Recently we (The University of Tampa students) were visited by one of the Lost Boys, Atem, and he shared with all of us his first hand experiences when he fled Sudan. Atem was faced with many conflicts. When he was only six years old he fled Sudan. He is currently in Jacksonville, Florida with his family except his dad who was shot. When he fled Sudan he had no idea where his family was, and had lost complete touch with them. In United States, he was later reunited with his family, and his mother was unable to recognize him. Although she eventually realized he was a grown man and she finally acknowledged it was Atem. The Lost Boys faced many conflicting moments and decisions on their way to Ethiopia. One conflicting theme throughout the novel is the idea of the known versus the unknown. For example, on the way to Ethiopia, Achak and all the other boys envisioned Ethiopia to have tall buildings and many healthy people. Achak imagined, “We would have chairs in Ethiopia. I would sit on a chair, and I would......

Continuous Improvement

...AMES Continuous Improvement Abstract This paper presents the continuous improvement efforts that Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services implemented in January 2013. AMES has just passed one year under the new processes established by the continuous improvement team. The paper compares aircraft delivery times before and after continuous improvement efforts using a lower tail t Test of hypothesis for the mean. The null hypothesis is continuous improvement did not improve aircraft turn time. However an inference made from statistical hypothesis t-test is that the continuous improvement efforts improved the turn time of heavy maintenance aircraft. AMES Continuous Improvement The aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) business is competitive on a global scale. To be competitive in this industry the MRO must produce a reliable aircraft on time at a low cost. These match the top three concerns of any MRO customer cost, schedule, and quality. Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services (AMES) is an upstart MRO formed in 2009. AMES is known for excellent aircraft quality/reliability at a higher price and longer schedule. AMES currently has a strong revenue stream from 2 sister airlines under the same Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) umbrella. Looking forward into future growth AMES must maintain high reliability, improve turn time and not raise cost in the process. In 2012 ATSG hired Empower MX, a consulting firm to review......

Federated Searching: a New Era

...Federated Searching: A New Era “Only librarians like to search; everyone else likes to find” (Tennant, 2003). While most librarians teach research strategies including: Boolean logic, accessing carefully chosen databases, and indexing; students are often discouraged and frustrated using these techniques. Most students simply want to Google their requests. For many students a simple keyword search is a convenient, simple process for locating information. Federated searching is providing options that may strike a happy medium for students and librarians alike by providing a keyword option to access the library’s databases. Federated searching is software or a service that allows multiple sources to be searched simultaneously. A library is required to purchase software and/or a service agreement from a vendor that provides access to information in the databases and on the Web. Using a search protocol, like Z39.50, the engine scans various databases, the Web, and library catalogs concurrently and provides an organized result for the searcher’s query. Metasearches are performed across both bibliographic and full-text databases. One major advantage of a federated search is that the query does not have to be repeated with various databases. When federated searching works well, it reduces the amount of time students spend locating data and encourages them to search for more information. “The goal of many federated search tools is to make the interface as simple and streamlined...

Continuous improvement gives a good impact to the company and also the economy as whole. It was being stated by Ron Ashkenas who is the managing partner of Schaffer Consulting in his article. During 1950s, Japanese manufacturers did not emphasis on quality in the production of product. But then, they imposed a culture of analytical and systematic change.

The Unknown God to the Lost Man

...The Unknown God to the Lost Man The Apostle Paul being an educated man, reared in both Greek and Roman knowledge which is manifested in his speeches and letters. As we see here Paul is using what can be equated with some street smarts and since to reach a dying generation. Paul being a Roman citizen knew that even in Greece or Athens it was a capital offense to preach a new deity. Today our society has become more liberal and more-free willed thinking to where the church has been confined back to a harsh reality of staying within the four walls that it dwells in. It almost seems now that it is a capital offense in our very own country, the country of the free and home of the brave to boldly proclaim Christ. Our young people who are fore fronting this new age of free will thinking while yet believing is lost and on their way to hell. Now we have to keep quiet and don’t want anyone to know we are more than just Christians we actually have a relationship with Christ that is harmoniously intimate. Paul used his boldness for Christ in an internal silent way to boldly proclaim the truth of the unknown God. It is not that we are bringing a new God to the picture but just reveling the one who loved you enough to create you and destine you for greatness. It is He that “we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28). Many of whom believe in God or know of Him but don’t know Him Just because you believe in God is no proof that you......

Describe how the interest rate can be used to adjust the value of cash flows – both forward and backward – to a single point in time. Calculate both the future and present value of: (a) an amount invested today; (b) a stream of equal cash flows (an annuity); and (c) a stream of mixed cash flows. Distinguish between an “ordinary annuity” and an “annuity due.” Use interest factor tables and understand how they provide a shortcut to calculating present and future values. Use interest factor tables to find an unknown interest rate or growth rate when the number of time periods and future and present values are known.

...Edward Balli February 1, 2015   Jenny’s All Natural Ice Cream Shop The problem with ice cream products today is unhappy, milked to death cows. In 1946, a cow was grass fed, had milk output of 2 gallons of milk per day, and lived an average of 15 years. Modern cows are grain fed, produce 8 gallons of milk per day, and live an average of 18 months. All flavor and rich texture of real ice cream is lost in modern cow milk production. The history of milk production has led up to this poor excuse for ice cream. Ice cream is the quintessential cold treat that keeps the world going round, yet has an unknown point or origin or originator. History determines ice cream to exist as far back as 200 B.C. The bible references King Solomon’s fondness of sweet iced drinks during harvesting periods. Alexander the Great preferred honey and nectar flavored snow treats. Claudius Caesar was known for sending runners into the mountain for snow, later flavoring the snow with fruit juice. Sherbet ice cream was first recorded in the 16th century as a treat brought to Europe by Marco Polo from the far east. (IDFA, 2015). Most notable was Cream Ice, a favored dessert of the court of Charles I in the 17th Century. Historians state King Charles I paid a handsome salary of 500 pounds per year to chef DiMirco for keeping the recipe a secret. DiMirco kept the recipe secret until the beheading of King Charles I in 1649. (Vandenbark, 2008). Paris Café Procope, was the first establishment to bring ice......

As an automatic method, continuous auditing’s responsibility is to perform auditing activities more frequently which including control and risk assessments. With the aim of helping to automate the identification of anomalies or exceptions, analyze models, test controls and review trends, “Continuous” in this aspect of continuous reporting and auditing serves as the financial information’s real-time ability to be shared and checked. Continuous auditing presents that the financial information’s integrity can be evaluated at any given-point-time; as a result, financial information’s inefficient, frauds and errors could able to be verified constantly. In the other hand, we could consider continuous auditing as a very detailed audit. 1 Historical development of continuous auditing As a kind of audit method, it theoretical sources is from the traditional auditing method. The traditional auditing theory is the basis of analyzing the continuous auditing. Most of the auditing is a format of statutory audit, but not all the auditing is required by the statutory from the beginning. Under the freedom of market environment, we should strengthen research on audit risk, explore ways of audit risk management and control, continue to improve audit quality, and reduce audit risk. “In fact, the concept of “continuous auditing” has been around since the late 1980s.
