...5 car brands which make me go Vrooom! The type of car you drive shows what you believe in and identify with and at the same time making a statement to your family, friends and co-workers even though it might not be intentional. The brands that I always think of first when buying a car are listed below and I have also stated why I identify with them more than any other brands. # 1 Toyota This brand has been consistently ranked number one in quality and dependability for the past four years and on can never fail buying a Toyota. It has the best resale value and also introduced one of the first successful hybrid cars the Prius. It has hybrids for nearly all its famous models which will help keep the environment and the world clean for our future generations. Another point that Toyota cars stand out and the company always points out is reliability, you can be pretty sure that with just basic oil changes your Toyota will keep on running flawlessly beyond the warranty period. # 2 Honda I have owned two Hondas till date and it is a close second in the features offered by Toyota, the one that particularly stands out for Honda is the stylized interiors and exteriors year over year as compared to the other manufactures who make very slight changes which give it syle and street cred. Honda was also one of the first Japanese manufacturers to open a plant on American soil and hence has been instrumental in adding to the American economy. Honda has always been a innovator and......

Gastric Bypass Versus Lap-Band

...While both Gastric-Bypass and the Lap-Band procedure have similarities, there are differences in the amount of discomfort, effort, and amount and time of weight loss. There are many important decisions to be made when choosing which procedure would best fit the needs, lifestyle, and health of an individual. Comparing these side-by-side should help in making an informed decision. Here is a brief description of each procedure. Gastric-Bypass is a surgical bypass operation performed to restrict food intake and reduce absorption of calories and nutrients in the treatment of severe obesity that typically involves reducing the size of the stomach and reconnecting the smaller stomach to bypass the first portion of the small intestine. (1)The Lap-Band procedure is a silicone belt or collar that goes around the upper part of the stomach. (2) The Lap-Band procedure is also surgical based. Both procedures restrict the amount of food that can be eaten resulting in loss of weight. Both procedures are surgical. While Gastric Bypass alters the stomach and intestines, Lap-Band does not. On the other hand, Lap-Band introduces a band that is left inside of the body, while gastric bypass does not. The surgical risks of both procedures are very similar. Having Gastric By-Pass, the risks associated with the surgical procedure can include: Excessive bleeding, Infection, Adverse reactions to anesthesia, Blood clots, Lung or breathing problems, Leaks in your......

Lap Report

...Lab Report By: Steven Setya 11B Hess’s Law: Determine Heat Formation of Magnesium Oxide Aim: To find Temperature difference/forming between MgO metal and Mg metal Hypothesis: My hypothesis is if Magnesium oxide has a heat formation due to the reaction with HCl, then Magnesium Metal will have a greater temperature difference. Variables: Independent: Amount of HCl Dependent: Temperature increase Controlled: Amount of Mg metal and MgO metal Manipulation Variable: The independent variable is the amount of HCl being reacted with Magnesium Metal and Magnesium Oxide. The more the amount of HCl the faster is the reaction and we can see the amount of heat change produced from the reaction. While the Dependent is the temperature increase during the reaction from the original room temperature of the solution. When Mg or MgO is reacted with HCl, reaction occurs and temperature increase will be there. What I control is the amount of Mg and MgO that will be reacted with HCl. If there is too much the reaction won’t be a fine reaction nor vice versa. Materials: 1 Bottle with hole in lid Beaker with 100 ml of 1 mol of HCl 0.10-0.15 grams of Magnesium 0.3-0.5 grams of Magnesium Oxide 1 Stopwatch 1 Thermometer (in Celcius) 1 Big Beeker with A lot of Cotton 2 10 ml Beeker Procedure: Experiment 1: 1. Take 0.15 grams of Magnesium Metal 2. Weigh the bottle and lid 3. Add 50ml of HCl to bottle and record new mass 4. Measure the temperature of HCl inside...

Những công nghệ tương tự như Java Applet hay một “đứa con” sáng giá của Microsoft là Silverlight cũng không thể đứng vững và cạnh tranh được với Flash. Nhưng một vấn đề nảy sinh ở đây là khả năng tương tác giữa các công nghệ này với các thành phần xung quanh nó (như các thẻ HTML) dường như không thể. Chúng bị cô lập và hoạt động độc lập với thế giới bên ngoài. Giải pháp là quay trở lại sử dụng thuần HTML, Javascript và CSS, lập trình viên vẫn có thể tạo được ra ứng dụng với hiệu ứng đặc biệt và không bị các giới hạn mà những công nghệ trên gặp phải. Nhưng trở ngại lớn nhất là không có đủ API để tạo ra được những ứng dụng tương tự như trên Flash. Và tốc độ của các ứng dụng thuần HTML khá chậm, hầu như không thể chấp nhận được với một game có yêu cầu cấu hình trung bình. Nhưng với sự ra đời của HTML5 cùng với các thành phần và API mới, giới hạn trên đã bị phá bỏ và đang từng bước thay thế dần các công nghệ như Flash.

The Dangers of Gastric Bypass and Lap-Band Procedures

...Week 3 – LOM Assignment 1 Michaela McClellen The Dangers of Gastric Bypass and Lap-Band Procedures As with any surgery, gastric bypass and lap-band procedures pose potential health risks. One danger with the gastric bypass procedure is a condition known as “dumping syndrome”, this is where ingested foods bypass the stomach too rapidly and enter the small intestine largely undigested. This undigested food draws excessive fluid into the small intestine causing nausea, cramping, diarrhea, sweating, feeling faint and fast heart rate. In addition people with this syndrome often suffer from low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. Blood clots in the legs can be another danger: In some cases they travel to the lungs and lodge in the arteries which could cause a pulmonary embolism, a serious condition that damages lung tissues and can even lead to death.(“Gastric Bypass Surgery” ,2007) The lap-band procedure also has dangerous risks, one being: Infection of Surgical wounds, or deep abdominal infections because of manipulation of the bowel and organs with the added potential of damaging of bowels and releasing contaminated contents into the stomach. Another risk is the slipping of the band from its original position, if this were to occur then the surgical procedure would be necessary to be performed again.

Lap Band

...Lap band 1 Lap band surgery process, and what is involved. Stevie Vieth Axia College of University of Phoenix Lap band 2 Lap band surgery has become one of the most popular forms of bariatric weight loss surgery out there. Like every surgery there are a few steps to take before a patient can proceed with the actual surgery. First they would need to see if they qualify for the procedure. Then they would need to prepare and understand the process of this procedure. As well as understanding the risks and complications that can occur throughout the process. While there are many risks and complications involved with lap band surgery, it can still provide obese patients with the opportunity for a healthier life in the future. Although many people believe they are overweight, or believe they need weight loss surgery. There are still many standards and qualifications that they still have to meet before being approved for lap-band surgery. One of the important standards is that they must meet is having a body mass index of 40 or higher. Having a body mass index of 40 or higher proves to be the ideal candidate for lap-band surgery. Going by body mass index is a useful indicator of whether or not a patient is a good candidate for weight loss surgery. Some patients who do not have a body mass index of 40 or higher, but have obesity related health issues can also prove to be an ideal candidates for lap-band surgery. Along with the......

...This study was conducted to discover whether or not there is an association between academic performance and involvement in a romantic relationship amongst high school students. The variables looked at were dating status (single or involved), level of involvement in the relationship, and grade point average. Variables were calculated on a survey measuring relationship and school satisfaction. Seventy-five high school students studying in St. Joseph College were surveyed. Approximately fifty-one percent of those surveyed were involved in a relationship. The relationship assumed between grade point average and dating status were not supported by the data. However, students involved in a relationship experienced more stress when facing deadlines for school. The data has not revealed any clear correlation in the study between dating status and academic performance, though hopefully further research in this idea will prove beneficial.  INTRODUCTION On a daily basis, e students are faced with a conflict of interest: to study or not to study. Often times these decisions are affected by outside factors that are beyond the control of the student (i.e. work, athletics, involvement in organizations). One other factor that is believed to be a major influence is the existence of a significant other. While involved in a relationship during college, one might be forced to choose either studying for school or spending time with the significant other, leaving the student with increased......

They got fire ground stuff because they are not that important and Cathay would not face loss without them. Cathay will try to increase advertisement and brand awareness such as hosting the Rugby 7s. They would also try to advertise their new routes so they will be able to raise brand awareness. Overall this new law might go two ways good or bad for Cathay as long as they are able to capture their market they will do just fine. Since there will be more flights there will be more sales so I feel Cathay will be able to break even with their costs and everything.

Career Goals Essay

...8:00 AM. July 1, 2010. The 23rd floor of the Bank of China building in Hong Kong. A woman sitting behind the mahogany desk calls a Shanghai trader to buy 200,000 shares of China Telecom's stock. Moments later, she dashes into a teleconference with Tokyo analysts. When the teleconference finally concludes two hours later, the woman rushes down the stairs, hails a taxi to the Chek Lap Kok Airport, catches a flight to Thailand, and ends her day with a meeting with the CFO of DynaTech Computers. I look forward to maintaining this busy schedule as a portfolio manager of an international equity mutual fund about ten years after obtaining my MBA. The Top School academic experience can build on my public accounting training and my multi-cultural and multi-lingual background to prepare me for work first as an equity analyst in the mutual fund industry and ultimately as a portfolio manager specializing in Asian Pacific equities. As a CPA and staff accountant with Big 6 for the past two and a half years, I have developed a solid foundation in teamwork, analytical, and problem-solving skills. As a bilingual associate of the Asia-Pacific Business Group, I specialize in auditing the financial statements of in-bound Asian businesses. However, while Big 6 provides expansive career opportunities in public accounting, I have reached a plateau in developing the analytical and management skills necessary to achieve my ultimate career goal of money management.
