SUBJECT: Financial Statement Analysis - Discussion

I would imagine that the stakeholders in this case are Jack McClintock; President of McClintock Industries, Jeremy Phelps; Public Relations Director, Myself; Controller of McClintock Industries, and all of the stockholders of McClintock Industries, and any potential investors in McClintock Industries. President McClintock’s actions are unethical; the choice to only report the positive facts instead of the full truth is just as bad as covering up. For instance, no mention is made that the debt to total assets ratio has increased from 35% to 55%, that inventories are up 89%, and that while the current ratio improved, the acid-test ratio fell from 1:1 to 0.5:1 Weygandt, J., Kimmel, P., & Kieso, D. ,2011). So by only reporting what he chooses, President McClintock has left himself open for scrutiny in the future. As the Controller it is my responsibility to speak to President McClintock and let him know that although the report is correct, the presentation is wrong; plus I feel it is unethical to report only the positives without showing the negatives. As for Jeremy Phelps; he does have a responsibility to report what is given to him, but he has to know that he is still responsible for delivering the message and has to believe in it for it to be a sell to future investors.

Project requirements: 1. Callingyou Inc is a growing company providing 24-7 telephone support services for numerous companies. They have asked you to prepare a design proposal for their new office network. They will have two offices with a dedicated T1 line between them and would like each office to be able support sixty employee workstations with internet access, central server access, and VoIP. These workstations will be shared by multiple users as the company operates on shifts to provide 24-7 support. Each office will also have eight management offices. In addition to this office support, they also need to support VPN access for employees working from home. And, support for secure internet access customers visiting the office is desired. The Callingyou Inc executives have no experience with networks but want to be sure that they are making the right decision; so, they have asked that in addition to providing a design that the proposal specifically describe all network design considerations.

...Encryption Standard. 7. What is SHA1, and what is it used for? The Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1) is a well-known and currently secure cryptographic hash function designed by the NSA. Is it used similarly to TripleDES or are they different? They are the same, they both use algorithms. 8. Provide and explanation for the difference between symmetric keys and asymmetric keys in a PKI? symmetric-key: It only needs one key to encrypt the message. And both user only need the same key to decode the message. And the in order to create the key is by moving the bit. asymmetric-key: It needs two different keys- public key and private key. Everyone can see the public key and only the person who has private key can decode the message. 9. What is a common drawback to Encrypting using enterprise level tools such as PGP? Complexity, cost, lack of scalability, and lack of interoperability with VoIP systems. So even though implementing encryption is appealing, many businesses may balk at the potential obstacles. 10. What is the difference between PGB and GPG? “PGP” stands for “Pretty Good Privacy.” It was developed by Phil Zimmermann. At first it was written as copyrighted freeware under the Gnu Public License. Later, PGP was upgraded and made into a propriety program. The rights for this program are traded around. The reason for this upgrade was legal defense costs and royalty issues related to the export laws of the USA. Now the PGP program is owned by PGP......

...Valerie Coakley PS220-03: Child and Adolescent Psychology June 22, 2010 Unit 9 Final Project: Urie Bronfenbrenner developed the ecological systems theory to explain how everything in a child and the child's environment affects how a child grows and develops. He labeled different aspects or levels of the environment that influence children's development, including the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, and the macrosystem (Bukatko, 2008). Bronfenbrenner’s theory stresses the need to understand how children develop in everyday life. The development issue I chose to discuss is Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) and how the surroundings and everyday life affects the development. There are different characteristics that accompany FAS in the different stages of a child's life. "At birth, infants with intrauterine exposure to alcohol frequently have low birth rate; pre-term delivery; a small head circumference; and the characteristic facial features of the eyes, nose, and mouth" (Phelps, 1995, p. 204). Some of the facial abnormalities that are common of children with FAS are: microcephaly, small eye openings, broad nasal bridge, flattened mid-faces, thin upper lip, skin folds at the corners of the eyes, indistinct groove on the upper lip, and an abnormal smallness of the lower jaw (Wekselman, Spiering, Hetteberg, Kenner, & Flandermeyer, 1995; Phelps, 1995). These infants also display developmental delays, psychomotor......

...Unit 9 Seminar August 31, 2012 MT140: Introduction to Management Unit 9 Seminar Many people encounter communication problems and sometimes they can be avoided and others not so much. Everyone uses a process of perception and filtering and it’s easy to mistake perception which will lead to a misunderstanding as does filtering. It’s best to try and use clear, slow speech when communicating with someone, be sure to repeat, pause, and use gestures. Word choice and body language are what I believe to be very important in communication. These two can clash very quickly and easily if not done properly, it can also cause confusion. There are also different kinds of communication channels that we have such as oral and written. Oral communication is face to face discussion, telephone, and even through presentation and speech. The written communication is emails, memos, letters, reports, computer files, and more. The steps to managing change can also vary, but change can happen constantly and unpredictably. There are several ways you can take to managing the change and they could be by first building a case for the change. What’s the reason for the change and why is it so important that it happens within the business? Next, would to be sharing the vision and values these are important because you would want your company to know what the vision is and values. This way everyone is on board and has and understanding to why it is happening. Thirdly, you will need the recourses......

Diffraction occurs with all waves, including sound waves, water waves, and electromagnetic waves such as visible light, X-rays and radio waves #17. Refraction is the change in direction of a wave due to a change in its transmission medium. #18. Shadow Zone is an area following an obstacle that does not receive a wave by diffraction. #19 Thre basic modes : Ground wave, space wave. sky wave. #20. Ground Wave propagation is a method of radio frequency propagation that uses the area between the surface of the earth and the ionosphere for transmission. #24. The radio waves having high frequencies are basically called as space waves. These waves have the ability to propagate through atmosphere, from transmitter antenna to receiver antenna. #30. The CRITICAL FREQUENCY is the maximum frequency that a radio wave can be transmitted vertically and still be refracted back to Earth. The CRITICAL ANGLE is the maximum and/or minimum angle that a radio wave can be transmitted and still be refracted back to Earth. In radio transmission maximum usable frequency (MUF) is the highest radio frequency that can be used for transmission between two points via reflection from the ionosphere ( skywave or "skip" propagation) at a specified time, independent of transmitter power. This index is......

...Unit 9 Assignment 1. Refer to the sets of the aggregate demand, short-run aggregate supply, and long-run aggregate supply curves. Use the graphs to explain the process and steps by which each of the following economic scenarios will shift the economy from one long-run macroeconomic equilibrium to another equilibrium. Under each scenario, elaborate the short-run and long-run effects of the shifts in the aggregate demand and aggregate supply curves on the aggregate price level and aggregate output (real GDP). a. Suppose the household wealth decreases due to a decline in the stock market asset prices (See the set of graphs below and pay attention to the 3-stage shifts in graphs). Answer: In graph one the decline in the stock market asset price causes the AD line to shift downward, decreasing. The long-run equilibrium in the first graph is the point where all three of the lines (LRAS, S1, and D1) are connecting. With a lower GDP, the aggregated demand curve shifts to the left (D1 to D2) creating a new equilibrium point at a lower price level. In the second graph it shows a higher supply with the increase in the SRAS (S1 to S2) curve. It will create a new long run equilibrium at a lower price level. In the last graph it shows both the shift in the AS curve from AD1 to AD2 due to the decrease and it shows the increase in the SRAS curve from S1 to S2 due to higher supplies. It shows both the old and new equilibrium along the LRAS curve. The first one being higher......

Unit 9 Discussion 1: Risk Analysis

...Gustavo Ochoa John Webb Dani Deandresi Unit 9 Discussion 1: Risk Analysis To protect information, businesses need to implement rules and controls for the protection of information and the systems that store and process this information. This is achieved through the implementation of information security policies, standards, guidelines and procedures. This document states how a company will protect its physical and information assets. It is a living document, meaning that the document is never finished. This document can include an acceptable use policy, a description of how the company plans to educate its employees about protecting the company’s assets, an explanation of how security measurements will be carried out and enforced, and a procedure for evaluating the effectiveness of the security policy. A security policy should be written by senior management. This plan also outlines security roles and responsibilities. System characterization is used to expedite the risk analysis. It is the process of identifying which information assets need protecting either because of their criticality to the business and/or because ePHI is processed and stored on the system. This process includes conducting an inventory of major applications and general support systems—any systems that process or store PHI. A major application is an application that is critical to an organization or stores PHI. Generally, the “owner” for a major application is the director of the department......

...Unit 9 Assignment Kaplan University CJ211: Police Operations Police Technology has evolved so much from the time of the first modern officer. With population increasing, law enforcement officers needed technology that gave them the chance to do their jobs quicker and better. Instead of having to shoot a suspect, officers now have less than lethal weaponry which makes it possible to incapacitate using different methods. Crime mapping allows police departments to find correlations between crimes in different areas of the city. In order for law enforcement officers to contain traffic pursuits they now use pursuit management technology which helps to stop a pursuit before something gets damaged or somebody gets hurt. Police officers sometimes have to deal with violent, combative people and while dealing with them have to keep in mind the use-of-force protocols. Less-lethal technologies give police an alternative to using physical force options that potentially are more dangerous to the officers and the suspects (National Institute of Justice). There are seven types of less-than lethal technology. Conducted Energy Devices, such as the Taser and Stun gun, can induce involuntary muscle contractions that temporarily incapacitate people. Directed Energy Devices use radiated energy to achieve the same effect as blunt force, without injury. Chemicals, including pepper spray, tear gas, and stink bombs, are used to incapacitate suspects so officers can catch them and......

Chapter 9 Question and Discussion

...Chapter 9 Review Question, Discussion Topic and Project Review Question 1: In the auto shop examples on page 348, what are some problems that might arise in Mario's system? Why won't Danica run into the same problems? Provide specific examples in your answer. Problems that would be exclusive to Mario’s Auto Shop are: increased time spent on entering in the same data, miscalculations could result from having two people entering in the same data and they would not be able to compare all of the data at once. Danica wouldn’t run into those problems because she only has one table and therefore doesn’t have to retype the same data into two different tables. Danica would also be able to compare all of her data on a single screen and would be able to organize the two categories at once. Having only one large table would also reduce time being spent on entering data as opposed to having two separate data tables. Discussion Topic 1: Are there ethical issues to consider when planning a database? For example, should sensitive personal data (such as medical information) be stored in the same DBMS that manages employee salary and benefits data? Why or why not? The main ethical issues of handling sensitive data would be privacy. Medical information should only be visible to doctors or health insurance providers. While employee salary and benefits should only be visible to management. Also all the data storage should comply with all laws of privacy including the HIPPA act and......
