information storage and retrieval information storage and retrieval, the systematic process of collecting and cataloging data so that they can be located and displayed on request. Computers and data processing techniques have made possible the high-speed, selective retrieval of large amounts of information for government, commercial, and academic purposes. There are several basic types of information-storage-and-retrieval systems. Document-retrieval systems store entire documents, which are usually retrieved by title or by key words associated with the document. In some systems, the text of documents is stored as data. This permits full text searching, enabling retrieval on the basis of any words in the document. In others, a digitized image of the document is stored, usually on a write-once optical disc. Database systems store the information as a series of discrete records that are, in turn, divided into discrete fields (e.g., name, address, and phone number); records can be searched and retrieved on the basis of the content of the fields (e.g., all people who have a particular telephone area code). The data are stored within the computer, either in main storage or auxiliary storage, for ready access. Reference-retrieval systems store references to documents rather than the documents themselves. Such systems, in response to a search request, provide the titles of relevant documents and frequently their physical locations. Such systems are efficient when large amounts of different types of printed data must be stored. They have proven extremely effective in libraries, where material is constantly changing.

...because the engineer seems standoffish with co-workers. The next item is neatness of workspace. The engineer’s desk is always cluttered and sometimes piled high with papers or memos, so a low-medium rating seems justified. It is more difficult for the manager to give a rating on attitude. The engineer always seems to complete important tasks as needed, and they are usually done well; however, the engineer frequently demonstrates a poor attitude toward co-workers and does not pay close attention when the manager is talking to the group. A low-medium rating seems warranted on this item also. The manager stops at this point and decides to give some additional thought to the engineer’s performance evaluation before continuing.

Info | | Tonya Davies Week 3 Accounting Info 7/25/14 If a company has adequate security controls in place then they should not be held liable for losses sustained in a successful attack made on their Accounting Information System (AIS) by outside sources. If a company is negligent about security controls then they should be held liable for losses sustained in a successful attack on their AIS. There are a variety of sources that threaten accounting information systems and if they are ignored then this can destroy the relevance and reliability of the financial information. It is very important to establish security controls during the data collection process. During this process the transaction or event should be valid, complete and free from material errors. An unauthorized user can pretend to be an authorized user, which is called masquerading. Another activity that hackers use during data collection is called piggybacking, which is tapping into the telecommunications lines. Companies need to establish security controls during this process so hackers can’t get into their accounting information system. Threats during the data processing phase can also occur. A few threats that can occur during this phase would include: creating illegal programs, accessing or deleting files, destroying or......

...Essay Structure Writing an academic essay means fashioning a coherent set of ideas into an argument. Because essays are essentially linear—they offer one idea at a time—they must present their ideas in the order that makes most sense to a reader. Successfully structuring an essay means attending to a reader's logic. The focus of such an essay predicts its structure. It dictates the information readers need to know and the order in which they need to receive it. Thus your essay's structure is necessarily unique to the main claim you're making. Although there are guidelines for constructing certain classic essay types (e.g., comparative analysis), there are no set formula. Answering Questions:  The Parts of an Essay A typical essay contains many different kinds of information, often located in specialized parts or sections. Even short essays perform several different operations: introducing the argument, analyzing data, raising counterarguments, concluding. Introductions and conclusions have fixed places, but other parts don't. Counterargument, for example, may appear within a paragraph, as a free-standing section, as part of the beginning, or before the ending. Background material (historical context or biographical information, a summary of relevant theory or criticism, the definition of a key term) often appears at the beginning of the essay, between the introduction and the first analytical section, but might also appear near the beginning of the specific section to which......
