Read the Wikipedia article on Prolog and review the PPTs attached from last week’s lecture. The map coloring problem and the seven bridges of Konigsberg problem are classical mathematics problems which are considered very difficult. Yet we saw a Prolog program only thirteen lines long which purports to solve a limited case of the map coloring problem. Look up one of the URLs referenced in the PPTs and consider the classical mathematics graphic theory solution. How is it that a declarative parallel programming language like Prolog can solve a problem like this without the heavy lifting of graph theory? Sketch very roughly a computer solution using graph theory and a conventional language like C or C# and estimate how many lines of code it might take to solve this same five state map coloring problem. Finally state your opinion on the following questions: 1. Is the prolog solution algorithmic or heuristic? 2. Is the graph theory solution algorithmic or heuristic? 3. Estimate how many lines of Prolog it might take to solve the seven bridges of Konigsberg problem with Prolog. See: 4. Why is Prolog
Web servers are compromised for a number of reasons which may include any of the following: Improper file or directory permissions, installing the server with default settings, unnecessary services enabled, security conflicts, a lack of proper security policies, improper authorization with external systems, default accounts with default or no passwords, unnecessary default, backup, or sample files, misconfigurations, bugs in server software, OS, or web applications, misconfigured SSL certificates and encryption settings, administrative or debugging functions that are enabled or accessible on web servers or the use of self-signed certificates and/or default certificates. Select one of these compromises and explain how it could be avoided. 300 words
The case study below offers an excellent perspective on how projects are often initiated under less than ideal circumstances—which often lays the ground work for project failure. Companies that provide a service for another company usually respond to a bid document from a company that needs . This case study is a good example of this situation. The bid document can be as simple as an email from the buyer to the seller or as complicated as a request for proposal (RFP) outlining the objectives of the project and asking a seller to develop a proposal that provides a solution. Each company (seller and buyer) will have a business case for doing the project. The Peter’s Company is outsourcing for a reason. The Corwin Corporation is taking on the project for a different set of reasons. One of the reasons the Corwin Corporation is taking on the work is the looming, potentially very lucrative production contract if they are successful. There are no guarantees in research and development project that there will be success. ) – Create a WBS and WBS Dictionary. Now that your group (at Corwin) has a firm understanding of the product scope (i.e., “the features and functions that characterize” [the new rubber material] p. 154, PMBOK 5e), as well as the project scope (i.e., the work necessary to deliver the product), use the scope statement and other requirements documentation you group has prepared to create a WBS (no deeper than Level 4 on any tranche) and WBS Dictionary using the template provided. The following elements of the WBS dictionary must be completed: WBS ID, WBS Element Name, Description, Accountable Person, Acceptance Criteria, Assumptions, Constraints. For project management-related work deliverables (e.g, plans, meetings and reviews, reports), also complete the Activity ID and Activity for each work package, Additional considerations: The project will be completed in phases so preparing a WBS with phases at level 2 is a sensible way to design the WBS. The project phases are: 1.1. Project Planning, 1.2. Rubber Material Research, 1.3 Rubber Material Development, and 1.4 Project Close. The work required to complete the project associated with project management for execution, monitoring and controlling processes, can be sub-elements in the research and development phases. The lucrative production contract (a hopeful outcome) is not part of this project, but could be part of the business decision by Corwin to expend their own funds to complete the development if additional funding is needed.
Assignment 1: Case Study Assignment: Assessment Tools and Diagnostic Tests in Adults and Children When seeking to identify a patient’s health condition, advanced practice nurses can use a diverse selection of diagnostic tests and assessment tools; however, different factors affect the validity and reliability of the results produced by these tests or tools. Nurses must be aware of these factors in order to select the most appropriate test or tool and to accurately interpret the results. Not only do these diagnostic tests affect adults, body measurements can provide a general picture of whether a child is receiving adequate nutrition or is at risk for health issues. These data, however, are just one aspect to be considered. Lifestyle, family history, and culture—among other factors—are also relevant. That said, gathering and communicating this information can be a delicate process. For this Assignment, you will consider the validity and reliability of different assessment tools and diagnostic tests. You will explore issues such as sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values. You will also consider examples of children with various weight issues. You will explore how you could effectively gather information and encourage parents and caregivers to be proactive about their children’s health and weight. https://www.proquest.com/docview/1784000673?accountid=14872&forcedol=true ALSO SEE attached documents (3–4 pages, not including title and reference pages) topic is = Cologuard

The prefrontal cortex b. The transcranial pathway c. The visual cortex d. The rapid subcortical pathway 3 One way that therapists assist clients suffering from a phobia is through a technique called systematic desensitization The person is gradually exposed to the trigger of their fear until they learn to respond with relaxation instead of panic and dread This uses the principle of __________, which suggests that repeated exposure to a stimulus leads to familiarity and comfort a. relaxation b. habituation c. diminuation d. minimization 4 Which stage of sleep is characterized by an increase in delta wave activity in the brain? a. REM sleep b. Stage 1 c. Stage 2 d. Stage 3 5 One of the earliest theories of multiple types of intelligence was that of Raymond Cattell, who suggested that intelligence can be divided up into two types: a. intrapersonal and interpersonal b. emotional and intellectual c. practical and creative d. fluid and crystallized 6 Why is it so important that people living with HIV or AIDS find ways of reducing the stress in their lives? a. Because this illness compromises the immune system, and having too much stress will further limit the body’s ability to fight illness. b. Because HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, cannot live without a ready supply of adrenaline and noradrenaline to feed on. These are the neurotransmitters that are released by people who have too much stress in their lives. c. Because the medications used to treat these illness cannot be effective in individuals who have high stress due to the negative interaction of the drugs and cortisol, the stress hormone. d. Because the treatment of these illnesses requires a strict regimen of medication compliance, and research has shown that those who live with high amounts of stress are more forgetful and therefore more likely to miss a dose of their crucial, life-saving medication. 7 Psychologist Stewart Page had an associate who called 180 people who had advertised __________, but when they found out that the person calling was “about to be released from a mental health facility,” they were suddenly quick to become distant This study demonstrated the pervasiveness of stigma attached to mental illness in the 1970s a. job openings b. rooms for rent c. the need for a babysitter d. a desire to purchase a vehicle 8 In 2005 the United States Supreme Court outlawed the practice of using capital punishment (the death penalty) for juvenile offenders What was the basis of this ruling? a. The recognition that using the death penalty on juveniles presented a clear risk of unnecessary pain, which would violate the constitutional prohibition on “cruel and unusual punishment.” b. The recognition that juveniles have a biological deficiency in their ability to use good judgment. c. The recognition that putting juveniles to death would be more of a punishment for their families than for the juveniles themselves. d. The recognition that juveniles are psychologically incapable of being responsible for their own actions. 9 Which of the following facts about the James-Lange theory of emotions is true? a. James was older than Lange, which is why his name came first in the theory b. James and Lange did not know each other, and proposed the same theory at the exact same time c.

James and Lange worked together for over thirty years before their theory was finally accepted in mainstream psychology 10 While Alfred Binet is generally credited with creating the first test used to measure intelligence, this is actually a bit of a mistake The test that he developed, in fact, measured a child’s: a. processing speed b. mental age c. mathematics skills d. verbal fluency
Second, you should respond to two posts written by your peers. ( note that you will only be able to see other posts after you submit your own.) Your responses should each be and should follow the that are outlined in our syllabus. Some suggested strategies you may use in your response include providing a personal reaction, bringing up a point of agreement or disagreement, asking a clarifying question, or thinking of an additional example that further proves or complicates what your peer has said. The purpose of this step is to allow our forums to be an interactive space where we talk each other rather than

Study the printout of Act IV, Scene ii. Pay attention to how uses language. You can also study ‘s speech with in Act III, scene 5. Find 5-6 examples of using words in the wrong way. Obviously is a funny character but Shakespeare is also making some important points about how language and the “truth” are connected. Consider also ‘s determination that someone write down that he “is an ass.” How might that be connected with the end of the play, in the scene that determines Beatrice and Benedick are in love? What might Shakespeare be saying about spoken language? written language? Once you have considered these scenes, write a one-page paper (single-spaced) in which you discuss the connection between what people SAY (their words) and what is TRUE. Print your paper and bring it to class. I want the paper writing high school the deadline after 11 hours from now
Web Quests are an effective and fun way to bring reading and technology into your content area classroom. I call this “hidden reading” because students will read a great deal to accomplish the task you set for them; however, students will not be aware of the amount of reading they have been required to do due to the fun you are ing create. Carefully read the section of your textbook concerning Web Quests (pages 267-268) then create a Web Quest you could use in your future or current content area classroom. I encourage you to not think of this as just an exercise, but again, to create a Quest that you can actually use. Make certain the Web Quest and its subject matter is also appropriate for your grade level. This should be a richly supported Quest that leads your students through active inquiry.

Make certain the Web Quest and its subject matter is also appropriate for your grade level. This should be a richly supported Quest that leads your students through active inquiry. First, you may want to explore the many Web Quests available for your content area at the following sites. There are other sites, but note the following guidelines: Your Quest must be original and not use the words found on some of the templates on these websites. It must also be developed for course. You must use a Web Quest format; in other words, a Word document will be considered a complete Web Quest. These sites are easy to use and all provide technical support, but don’t wait until the last minute. They are also all free! Your Quest must show evidence of many content links, but also books and other supplemental reading that you will provide for your students’ use in the classroom. The following information should give you all the information you need to create a wonderful Web Quest. None of these require fees to create a Quest, so don’t pay just for this assignment! It is also possible that some of the links no longer function. One of the best sites for creating WebQuests is Filamentality at: Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this last address for other addresses! Other sites for creating Quests are: http://zunal.com/ Purchase the answer to view it
The assignment has three components: 1) Three significant quotations selected from any of the readings. The quotes should exemplify some argument or position that each author is taking in their essay. The quotes should be set up such that you can imagine a conversation or debate taking place between the three authors. 2) A summary statement explaining the relationship between the three quotations. For example, is there a concept or issue that all three have in common, and are they on the same side or opposing sides of that issue? 3) Three terms selected from any of the 4-6 readings assigned for that week that you must define in your own words (no quotes). These terms may or may not be related to your quotations from part 1. YOU DONT NEED TO USE ALL ARTICLES
