Personal Thinking Styles (primary, backup, limiting)
Based on my Life Style Inventory Circumplex, my primary thinking style is dependent, with approval and conventional as my backup style followed by avoidance as my limiting style.
All four styles placed me in the Passive/Defensive personal thinking category with People Orientation and Security as my primary needs. According to the LSI Style profile the Passive/Defensive style represent a “self-protecting thinking and behavior that promote the fulfillment of security needs through interaction with people”.
I am somewhat surprised that the survey result closely captured my primary thinking style. I think I can attribute my dependent style due to my current transition to the civilian workforce. After twenty four years of active military service I learned to rely and depend on the financial stability along with its rigid organizational hierarchical structure the military had to offer. Now that I have transitioned back into the civilian life and now in the ‘real world’ I tend to think about not rocking the boat when it comes to dealing with my colleagues in my current place of employment. Although I do not think I am overly defensive or aggressive when interacting with people. I do however, tend to listen more to what people have to say. Since I score 91% higher than other respondents on the Dependent scale, I will have to work on strengthening my Self-Actualizing needs to help me rely more on myself. Evidently this imbalance is reducing my overall effectiveness. I am now very much aware after taking the survey that this characteristic trait has hurt me in the three years I have been employed by the firm I currently work for and will continue to hurt…...

...Case Study 1: Echo Electronics Summary Echo Electronics is a small company that manufactures and distributes communication equipment. In an effort to increase production, Paul Sanchez the production manager, agreed with the engineering department to install new computerized workstations to improve production. However, after 3 months after being installed production was down and quality decreased. Consulting his subordinate managers resulted in differing opinions as the root cause but one thing for sure was moral was down with the production workers. Receiving a call from the CEO, Paul was tasked with determining the problem and correcting it immediately and a report prepared within the week. 1. What actions could Paul have taken to prevent the problem? To prevent this problem, Paul should have had greater discussions with his subordinates regarding his proposal. He rushed the decision without careful thoughts and inputs from others resulting in a decrease in production and a poorer quality product being produced. Taking it a step further, he should have had open discussions with the line workers allowing them to be considered in the decision and overall buy in since they are the ones using the machines. Forcing something new on someone more often than not results in negative results as evident at Echo Electronics. Additionally, he should have had a business plan which reflected costs associated with the new equipment, expected production and a return on investment...

...modes; * state which combinations of the control modes will most likely be found in typical control schemes; * sketch typical control schemes for level, pressure, flow and temperature applications. ------------------------------------------------- INSTRUMENTATION EQUIPMENT 2.0 INTRODUCTION Instrumentation is the art of measuring the value of some plant parameter, pressure, flow, level or temperature to name a few and supplying a signal that is proportional to the measured parameter. The output signals are standard signal and can then be processed by other equipment to provide indication, alarms or automatic control. There are a number of standard signals; however, those most common in a CANDU plant are the 4-20 mA electronic signal and the 20-100 kPa pneumatic signal. This section of the course is going to deal with the instrumentation equipment normal used to measure and provide signals. We will look at the measurement of five parameters: pressure, flow, level, temperature, and neutron flux. 2.1 PRESSURE MEASUREMENT This module will examine the theory and operation of pressure detectors (bourdon tubes, diaphragms, bellows, forced balance and variable capacitance). It also covers the variables of an operating environment (pressure, temperature) and the possible modes of failure. 2.1.1 General Theory Pressure is probably one of the most commonly measured variables in the power plant. It includes the measurement of steam pressure; feed water......

...EXISTING SYSTEM In Metropolitan cities, buses play an important role in the public transportation. Even though various kinds of transportations are implemented, the bus services still play a major part of the mass transit in Metropolitan cities. Due to increasing petrol and disel prices buses are the best alternative to own vehicles for the public. Additionally, it is much convenient since buses are available in atmost routes and bus passengers need not be worried for finding a parking area. The major problem faced by the passengers is delay in scheduled arrival time of bus to bus stop. The ITS- Intelligent Transport System is widely implemented to provide required information to passengers. In ITS every bus is mounted with a GPS module and electronic displays boards displaying arrival time of bus are placed in every bus stops. The Global position system (GPS) mounted as part of the Vehicle Mounted Unit in the bus will receive the longitude and latitude coordinates from the Satellite through a process of triangulation. This information is then sent across to the Central Control station through the wireless communication link – GSM / GPRS. The application at the Central control station on receiving the position inputs will update the display boards at the bus shelters / stops enroute and at the bus terminal platform display panel and the general display panel at the related bus terminals. The Passenger Information system will be driven by the following core sub-systems Central......

...To Use Electronics during School Electronic devices, including cell phones, are very helpful resources during school hours. Emergencies always happen and in case of emergency cell phones come in handy. Students are required to pay attention in class, yet no one said anything about having to pay attention during lunch or passing periods. There should be no worries about students being distracted during lunch, or passing periods because class hasn`t started. Electronic devices should be allowed during school hours. Parents always want to keep in touch with their children to see how they are doing during school. When there is an accident, there’s really no way to communicate with others because of this rule. Because of this rule, you don’t get any help because of the fact that you cannot use cell phones. Plus you don’t want to get in trouble, but you need to help the person who is hurt. Phones can be silenced during class or study periods and active only in appropriate places. Like if you were after school and you have to silence it for athletic sports, stay after to get help from a teacher, in a library and etc. Because of a small mistake, students get punished. A teacher can assume that you’re texting because your phone went off, but they don’t have actual proof. Students need a stand for this because accidents always happen. The other thing is that other electronic devices like cameras and IPods don’t make any disruptions unless they’re being used during school. Cameras......

Selecting Security Countermeasures

...03/30/2014 IS3220 Unit 2 Assignment 1 Selecting Security Countermeasures The primary components that make up a network infrastructure are routers, firewalls, and switches. An attacker may exploit poorly configured network devices. Common vulnerabilities include weak default installation settings, wide open access controls, and devices lacking the latest security patches. Top network level threats include: •Information gathering •Sniffing •Spoofing •Session hijacking •Denial of service Information Gathering Network devices can be discovered and profiled in much the same way as other types of systems. Attackers usually start with port scanning. After they identify open ports, they use banner grabbing and enumeration to detect device types and to determine operating system and application versions. Armed with this information, an attacker can attack known vulnerabilities that may not be updated with security patches. Countermeasures to prevent information gathering include: •Configure routers to restrict their responses to footprinting requests. •Configure operating systems that host network software (for example, software firewalls) to prevent footprinting by disabling unused protocols and unnecessary ports. Sniffing or eavesdropping is the act of monitoring traffic on the network for data such as plaintext passwords or configuration information. With a simple packet sniffer, an attacker can easily read all plaintext traffic. Also, attackers can crack......

Selecting Security Countermeasures

...IS3220 Assignment 2: Selecting Security Countermeasures As a Technology Associate in the Information System Department at Corporation Tech, I have reviewed the new network design and identified possible security threats and appropriated countermeasures. Entering the Internet without proper security can be harmful in many ways. The first thing that should be added is firewalls. Firewalls can prevent unwanted traffic from infiltrating the network. Next, we should consider segmenting the internal network to a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone). This is essential now that the company is deciding to add a web server and internet access. Including IDS (Intrusion Detection Systems) and IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems) would greatly increase the level of security relating to the traffic coming into to the network. These two components would also allow for a greater transparency by utilizing the logging features and monitoring those logs regularly, looking for anomalies by the IT Administrator. The other priority is to protect business and customer data and to prevent their unauthorized use whether the data is printed or stored locally, or transmitted over a public network to a remote server or service provider. Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program: Vulnerability management is the process of systematically and continuously finding weaknesses in the Corp Techs’ IT infrastructure system. This includes security procedures, system design, implementation, or internal controls that......

This is so in some cases, but not all hackers are bad. Hackers are merely curious technically skilled individuals who gain unauthorized access to computers, networks of various companies, organizations and individuals. Good hackers are considered white hat hackers. They are the ones, who are hired to break into systems as a way of testing the vulnerabilities and security issues that may be present in the computer system. Consider this: company XYZ, a mid-sized corporation, is in the middle of satisfying their regulatory compliance needs.  The manager of security at the company has been tasked by the CIO (Chief Information Officer) to report on the company’s current security posture. If the manager decided to outsource an ethical or white hat hacker in attempt to test their security measures. Over the course of this document various things the third party hacker would need from the company, things he or she would provide to the company and some predictions for the tests.

Fatigue Countermeasures Program for Nurses

...2009). b. The discussion of the conceptual framework is limited to the model of impaired sleep. The linking of the concept of impaired sleep to independent variables of the Fatigue countermeasures program for nurses (FCMPN). The major study concepts include: sleep deprivation (inadequate sleep), sleep disruption (fragmented sleep), lifestyle situation, and health related issues. Variables Identification and Definition Independent Variables: Feasibility of an FCMPN intervention for patient and nurse safety Conceptual Definition: “The model of impaired sleep (Lee et al., 2004) guided the intervention for evaluating the feasibility of an FCMPN for improving sleep duration and quality while reducing daytime sleepiness and patient care errors… Performance accomplishment was achieved by ‘educating’ the staff about fatigue, sleep, and circadian rhythms; neurobehavioral and health effects associated with sleep loss or deprivation; and misconceptions about sleepiness” (Scott, et al. 2010, p. 250, 253). Operational Definition: “A one-group pretest-posttest repeated measures approach was used. Participants provided data 2 week before the FCMPN, 4 weeks after receiving the intervention, and again at 3 months after intervention (Scott, et al. 2010, p. 250). Dependent Variables: Fatigue Countermeasures Program for Nurses (FCMPN) Conceptual Definition: The FCMPN is conceptually defined that sleep deprivation and sleep disruption can lead to sleep loss and poor sleep quality as......
