...experiment done to test the validity of psychiatric diagnosis. It tested a variety of people. It used (3 women, and 5 males a psychology graduate student in his 20s, three psychologists, a paediatrician, a psychiatrist, a painterm and a housewife) "pseudopatients" who faked hallusinations to attempt to get into 12 different psyc hospital in 5 different states across the U.S. They scheduled appointment and showed up complaining of hearing voices. They stated they didn't know the voice but it was the same sex as them. They also said that the voice was saying "empty", "hollow", and "thud". The pseudo patients gave fake names and job information to protect their true identites, but all other information was true. Such as life expirences, relationships, and so forth. They were all admitted and diagnosed with schizaphrenia except for one. After admission they told staff they were fine and were still forced to take antipsychotic drugs. They discharged from each hospital after 7-52 days,but only after accepting their diagnosis. They were discharged as "schizaphrenia in remission".None of the participants like the experience and wished tobe discharged immediately. They were never found out by staff. However, the other patents in the hospitals suspected their sanity. Voicing "you're not crazy" your just a journalsist or a proessor. Your just just checking up on the hospital. The pseudo patients took notes publically. They were full of patient behaviors that were misinterpreted by......

Also, check your formulas, pointer and references in Excel to ensure you did not miscalculate (it is still your error, not the spreadsheet). Remember the sum of the Assets must equal the sum of Liabilities and Owners Equity. If you have trouble equating these values then you probably made an error with a Journal entry or in transferring information within Excel. The worse error you can make is to falsify your value of Retained Earnings to make your Balance Sheet balance. Parts a, b, c, d, f and g must be different sections.

History of Checking

...The History of the Checking System “Checking accounts are used every day by millions of people. However, many people today do not realize that while they are taking this financial instrument for granted, it was not always a part of banking.” (Woodards) Just as Chris Woodards stated, I was one of those individuals that were taking the checking system for granted, that was until I started to do this research. As I was reading information about the history of the banking system and the checking accounts and check, I really did not know that there was so much information to the history of checking. I just thought that it was something that everyone did or has done forever, not ever paying attention to it. I knew of it just being a part of everyday life, especially as I was growing up. For buyers, checks are a more convenient, secure, and verifiable payments instrument as long as they have the funds in their account to cover the check so it does not get a stamp of “Non-Sufficient Funds.” Before the break out of the Civil War, banknotes and bills of exchange were used extensively; they remained competitive with the deposit accounts. Once the war broke out, congress passed legislation that was known as the National Banking Act. These were the two acts that established the banking system in the United States as we know, and they were the National Banking Acts of 1863 (originally known as the National Currency Act) and the National Banking Act of 1864, this new act was......

...Automatic Model Checking of State Machines A seminar report submitted to MANIPAL UNIVERSITY For Partial Fulfillment of the Requirement for the Award of the Degree of Master of Technology in Software Engineering by Anusha A Reg. No. 130928001 February 2014 Abstract The idea of Model Driven Development (MDD) is to specify requirements of systems in a formal (usually graphical) notation. UML is the initial and dominant modelling phase in software engineering arena. If errors are occurring in this phase of software development itself, it will cost a lot. Hence it is crucial to detect model level errors in the initial phase rather than later stages of software development. An approach to automatically verifying models composed of UML state machines. This approach helps in checking safety/liveness, properties, trace refinement, relationships and so on with the help of PAT (Process Analysis Toolkit) and CSP (communicating sequential programs). 1 1 1.1 Introduction State Machines The concepts behind state machines are about organizing the way a device, computer program, or other (often technical) process works such that an entity or each of its sub-entities is always in exactly one of a number of possible states and where there are well-defined conditional transitions between these states. The UML state diagrams are directed graphs in which nodes denote states and connectors denote state transitions. In UML, states are represented as rounded rectangles......

...critical thinking about what can be done (alternatives) and course of action (recommendation) are conducted. Support your decisions. There is nothing more frustrating for an instructor (me) than to have a case study in which the student (you) carefully lays out the problem statement, carefully analyzes the data, and then makes a bold assertion that it is obvious as to why a certain decision needs to be taken. Lead the instructor (me) through your thought process. If multiple options are available, describe why the one you have selected is the best option, or better than the other options. If your alternatives involve numbers, run the numbers and prove your case. A fifth and often overlooked step is to discuss alternative courses of action. Often, cases will lead the student (you) to making a choice between two alternatives, such as building a plant in China or in India. But the clever student (you) may have thought of alternatives not presented in the case, such as building a plant in Peru and then shipping the partially built products to China for final build. These alternatives would all flow from the materials in the case, not from speculative day-dreaming. In this section, you are really looking back at your decision in step four and checking for strengths and weaknesses of your decision. What I am expecting in your case write-ups: read the instructions in the syllabus. If there are questions at the end of the case, use those to guide your analysis. If there......

...information from although it really imposes hard on the younger generation. (Jordan, Starsburger, Wilson 2014) Several social media and social networking sites have created environments in which students can work or interact with other individuals concerning school related issues or requirements to enhance their learnings. (Jordan, Starsburger, Wilson, 2014) It is implied that in this era, everything including private things can be shared in the internet. A combination of blog, personal diary, instant messaging and exhibition, myspace, and its kind such as facebook and Friendster constitute map of personality, an open landscape for feelings, real or fantasized. (Berk, 1993) Due to the infinite number of information given by the internet, and the opportunities it has provided, it has been considered a valuable tool for academic researches. (Young, 1999) Facebook usage was found to interact with measures of psychological well-being, suggesting that it might provide greater benefits users experiencing low self-esteem and low life satisfaction. Studies show that there are various indicators to prove that most students often develop several bad habits in studying their lessons since they are getting more addicted to network site specifically in Facebook. Students who reported checking status updates, joining fan groups and chatting with friend and relatives on facebook several times a day had a GPA a much as a letter grade lower than their counter parts according to Ohio......

...illustrate some different directions in functional language design. Chapter 16 introduces logic programming and the logic programming language, Prolog. To the Instructor In the junior-level programming language course at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, the book is used as follows: We typically cover Chapters 1 and 3 in detail, and though students find it interesting and beneficial reading, Chapter 2 receives little lecture time due to its lack of hard technical content. Because no material in subsequent chapters depends on Chapter 2, as noted earlier, it can be skipped entirely, and because we require a course in compiler design, Chapter 4 is not covered. Chapters 5 through 9 should be relatively easy for students with extensive programming experience in C++, Java, or C#. Chapters 10 through 14 are more challenging and require more detailed lectures. Chapters 15 and 16 are entirely new to most students at the junior level. Ideally, language processors for Scheme and Prolog should be available for students required to learn the material in these chapters. Sufficient material is included to allow students to dabble with some simple programs. Undergraduate courses will probably not be able to cover all of the material in the last two chapters. Graduate courses, however, should be able to completely discuss the material in those chapters by skipping over parts of the early chapters on imperative languages. Supplemental Materials The......
