Educators are set to take advantage of the multiple collaboration tools and discussion opportunities provided by social networking sites for secondary and higher education ( Hoffman, 2009:Mason & Rennie 2008, as cited in Forkosh-Baruch & Hershkowitz, 2012). Despite the fact that there is limited guidance on how educators can intergrate social networking sites into subject which have been traditionally delivered face-to-face (Andrew & Drennan, 2009), teachers are on the lookout for information on the potential benefits or harmful effects using SNSs as a new and innovative way to try to engage students and improve students achievement.

.... . 0/ The GOD of the Hebrews versus the Egyptian gods Rev. Bryant S. Williamson Prof. Linda Reaves Writing and Research 215, Strayer University November 8, 2011 Intoduction There is a belief in a supreme being by all religions on earth. I believe that the same GOD of the Hebrews is this GOD because of his display of power over the Egyptian gods. This report looks at one account of many in the bible where GOD uses an ordinary man to free his people from bondage in Egypt using signs and wonders. The God of the Hebrews Versus the Egyptian gods One of the most awesome displays of power and love in the Bible is the deliverance of Gods’ people from Egypt. They were lead out of Egypt by Moses, a Hebrew found floating in an ark by Pharaohs daughter as a child. Moses, now grown, went out unto his people and saw an Egyptian beating one of his brethren and killed the Egyptian. After hearing of what Moses had done the Pharaoh sought to kill him but Moses had fled to the city of Midian and as time went on the King of Egypt died and the children of Israel (Hebrews) cried out to God because of their bondage. Thus the Lord remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and Jacob and sent Moses as the deliverer of his people. Moses is then encountered in the presence of God being called out of the mist of a burning bush and is given instructions to return to Egypt with Aaron where he demands that Pharaoh set his people free. And Pharaoh replies “Who is the Lord......

Intoduction of Xml

...XML, or extensible Markup Language, is a language based on web standards use by various communities and products. Similar to HyperText Markup Language, or HTML, XML is more concerned with data display than the presentation (Robbins, 2006). XML provides a unique structure that enables developers to define their own tags and attributes for elements. Defining such a unique set tags gives their intended audience data in a specific information format. Identifying difference of XML and HTML, examining XML standards, and providing XML examples will explain why XML is an important data exchange markup language standard. In order to understand XML it is important to understand HTML and differences between the two languages. The core technology for web page design is HTML. This language provides a non-programming language that marks up a page through use of tags to present objects. Angle bracket with keywords inside in an open and closing format provides instructions for a browser to interpret to display objects. Not all objects of HTML actually have open and close tags. Examples of standard HTML tags include “ ”, “” objects which produce a link and text input. Attributes are associated with objects allow displaying variations to the rendered objects. A browser is used to generate a page based on the objects that are displayed in order. Presentation of content employs a static method. Constant updates to pages are an inherent setback for using HTML. Additional......

Introduction ASC 840, Leases and FASB Statement No. 13, Accounting for Leases covers the standards of financial accounting and reporting for leases by lessee and lessor. A lease is a contract in which the lessor gives the lessee the right to use an asset (property, plant and equipment) for a specified period of time in exchange for periodic rental payments. The lessor is the owner of the property and the lessee is a tenant or renter. Most frequent examples of assets acquired by lease include automobiles, building space, computers and equipment. NeedsSpace entered into a lease agreement with WeHaveIt to rent space for its corporate offices. The lease is classified as an Operating Lease in accordance with ASC 840, Leases and FASB Statement No. 13, Accounting for Leases. What is an Operating Lease? An Operating Lease is when the lessor gives the lessee the right to use leased property for a limited period of time but retain all the risks and the rewards of ownership.

Dealing with Customer Complaints

...Content Intoduction 3 Why do customers complain? 3 Complaints are a goldmine of information 6 Why is Complaints Handling Important? 7 Intoduction A consumer complaint or customer complaint is “an expression of dissatisfaction on a consumer’s behalf to a responsible party”. It can also be described in a positive sense as a report from a consumer providing documentation about a problem with a product or service. In fact, some modern business consultants urge businesses to view customer complaints as a gift. Consumer complaints are usually informal complaints directly addressed to a company or public service provider, and most consumers manage to resolve problems with products and services in this way, but it sometimes requires persistence. If the grievance is not addressed in a way that satisfies the consumer, the consumer sometimes registers the complaint with a third party such as association of the rights of the consumers , a county government (if it has a “consumer protection” office) and etc. These and similar organizations in other countries accept for consumer complaints and assist people with customer service issues, as do government representatives like attorneys general. Consumers however rarely file complaints in the more formal legal sense, which consists of a formal legal process. Internet forums and the advent of social media have provided consumers with a new way to submit complaints. Consumer news......

...------------------------------------------------- Innovation A Multi-Dimensional Framework of Organizational Innovation: A Systematic Review of the Literature Emilie neven 5/11/2015 Intoduction After reading the article ‘A multi-Dimensional Framework of Organizational Innovation: A Systematic Review of the Literature’, it is clear to say that there is not one specific definition to the word ‘Innovation’. According to Schumpeter the term contained the novelty aspect, which makes every new ‘thing’ an innovation. With this in mind, I agree more with the definition stated in this article, because it includes different aspects all in one. Aside from the definition, a great number of papers have been written so far, regarding Innovation. Taking into account this previous research, we can say that there are different dimensions of innovation. However few papers discuss different dimensions across different areas at once, this article provides us with various dimensions of organizational innovation. As written in this paper, we can make several divisions when it comes to innovation. First of all there are two dimensions, namely; innovation as a process and innovation as an outcome. These two can be further divided. We have to remember that innovation as a process explains the why question and innovation as an outcome the what question. The latter is the most important dimension, due to its necessity and sufficiency. Furthermore can we divide three determinants of...
