The N.I.N.J.A. Framework
Watch your CPA Review videos first – before working any assigned homework questions.
The CPA Review industry says to watch a section of CPA
Review video and then work the accompanying MCQs. This perspective stems from the old-school approach to the paper and pencil exam where you had to sit in a live classroom and learn from an instructor on weekends.
Today, there is a smarter way to study. You don’t have to go to a weekend live course. You can fire up the laptop on a
Tuesday morning and knock out two hours of material before you even brush your teeth. If you work MCQs in week one over your week one topic, guess what? You will work them again in week 5 or 6 when you review because you will forget what you learned.
If you watch a video in week one and score an 85 on the corresponding MCQs, will you be able to score an 85 four weeks later? Not likely. You will need to work them again anyway and it’s not a smart use of study time.
Instead, let the N.I.N.J.A. Framework guide you.

Repeat after me: “PUT THE HIGHLIGHTER DOWN.”
Which method do you think will help you learn the material better – painting…...

How Far Is to Far

...TSA: How Far is too Far? ENG 122 English Composition II Dr. Rigney January 2, 2013 TSA: How Far is too Far? September 11, 2001(9/11) was the day the country was reminded that terrorists attacks on the United States is real and is a serious threat. On that fateful day in 2001, we lost thousands (to date there is still no official number) of our fellow Americans because nineteen terrorists from the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger jets. The members of this group were able to pass through airport security with box cutters and “explosives” (this has never been proven to date), to board the passenger jets that would be used in the attack that day. Once the terrorists had taken over the jets in mid-flight, they re-routed the jets to their intended targets. Two of the jets crashed into the World Trade Center in New York. One of the jets was able to hit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and the last jet never made it to its intended target because of the brave passengers on board that day. The passengers were able to take back control of the jet from the hi-jackers and the jet was crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania (9/11: timeline of events, 2013). Immediately following these attacks, a nationwide shut down of all aircraft was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) (Hoffman, 2011, Roberts, 2011, and Hoyer, 2011). This nationwide shut down began to slowly lift on September 12, 2001; this was when the......

In, Out, and Far, Far Away

...In, Out, and Far, Far Away Micah Ortiz DeVry University BUSN258 Instructor: George Kaye December 11, 2012 In, Out, and Far, Far Away For this Case Study, I chose two companies with which I am very familiar: In-N-Out Burger, and Saberforge.com. The industry of the two companies is quite different if not polar opposites, and through my own personal experiences and research, I found the aspect of customer relations between them to be just as different. To put it into perspective from the point of view of a Star Wars fan; if the customer service from Saber Forge was like the planet Alderaan, then In-N-Out would be like the Death Star: completely blowing them away. I very recently had a long-term issue finally resolved with this company, so I will start with the bad. Saberforge.com is a website that a Star Wars fan, like me, can order custom lightsaber hilts for use with costumes and role-play, aka cos-play. The website has many selections to choose from, all made from aircraft grade aluminum, and constructed by the proprietor of the site. The site user has various options for adding sound, removable polycarbonate blade tubes for dueling, color for the light emitter, and other accessory options. Here is a brief summary of my experience with their terrible customer service: After placing an order, I waited for nearly a year just to have my money refunded because it never shipped; all while receiving almost no feedback at all from several attempts to contact them about......

...between people in our rapidly advancing generation. In Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman’s play Post-Its (Notes on a Marriage), we watch as two young people who are in love and newly married, begin to leave each other post its notes when they have no time for communication with one another. The author successfully tells an amazing love story using a unique means of communication. According to Anne Maydan Nicotera, “communication is critical to inter-personal relationships” (Nicotera). The notes vary from topics such as one not wanting to wake the other as they leave early for work, for tasks that need to be completed throughout the day. The audience, through the reading of the post- its notes views the couple’s life as it goes through the early stages of a relationship, to having a child, to a downhill slide of their relationship, the steady reconstruction of a marriage, and eventually it goes on until one of the two passes on. By leaving these post-its notes, the unnamed couple manages to have a basis of communication upon which they both are able to agree upon. They manage to find a convenient and effective way to convey what they need to say to one another through post-its notes, and even though things get rough, and arguments ensue, they find their strength and return to one another. Their relationship is refound with a clean slate, and although there are occasional spats in the notes, the audience can see that their relationship is much easier once they settled their......

...designed especially for children. While these changes may not have generated a "golden age" for children, they certainly represented a monumental improvement over the way children had been raised in the past. Moreover, a strong case can be made that the family form that pioneered this new notion of childhood was instrumental in generating many of the social achievements of modern time, especially achievement-oriented individualism and liberal democracy. For it is surely the case that the character of the family shapes the character of the society as much as vice versa and these were the values that were taught in the new bourgeois home.4 Today, much of modern society is beginning to revert to the earlier preindustrial pattern. While life is far more secure economically and medically for most children than ever before, and childrearing methods have grown increasingly less punitive and authoritarian, many aspects of the domestic scene have grown worse for children. With the incursions of advertising and the organized entertainment industry, and the often sex and violence-saturated popular culture they are driving, childhood is no longer the relatively protected period that it has been in recent centuries. Children are thrust into an adult culture at an early age, just as they once were in the older era. The environment of childrearing has deteriorated in other respects as well. Many communities have become less safe and more anonymous, and childrearing families feel ever......

...Notes : In the poem, as well as the movie, the two major female characters are Wealthow and Grendel's mother. Unlike the movie, neither of these characters have large roles in the poem. Both play their part but are described very little. Wealthow is often only called the "gold-ringed queen" and only exists to play "a noble woman who knew what was right" (Raffel, 31). Despite her noble status, Wealthow holds her tongue and is only mentioned when she serves Beowulf and his soldiers mead from a jeweled cup. Grendel's mother, on the other hand, plays a slightly bigger role, but only as an evil idenity. Her name is never revealed and she is only known as Grendel's mother, signifying that the male defines the female. Additionally, Grendel's mother is the only female character that poses a threat to Beowulf and his men. Unfortunately, she is portrayed as a "mighty water witch", insinuating that any woman who defied an man was evil and wicked (Raffel, 41). These two female characters demonstrate the Anglo-Saxon ideas that women should be figures rather than hold any real power. Notes how women have become stronger forces in the world, yet are still held back by men. In the movie, Grendel's mother is shown to be little more than a sex object in the eyes of men, which actual allows her to hold power over them. She is able to seduce Hrothgar and Beowulf, creating sons for her evil to live on through. These monsters eventually attack the men as the repercussions of the "sins of the......

Now that you have familiarized yourself with individual prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells lets look at a couple different kinds of tissues. In most multicellular eukaryotes, those in the plant and animal kingdoms, cells are grouped into tissues. Tissues are groups of similar cells which perform a specific function in the animal or plant. After looking at cells you will observe a few of the different kinds of tissues found in plants and animals.

...they use accounting information to communicate with others. Managerial Perspective on Financial Accounting will help you understand publicly available financial statements for publicly traded companies and financial statements prepared for internal use. It is also an introduction to financial statement analysis and valuation methods. The basic financial accounting methodology, double-entry bookkeeping, was first published in 1494. However, double-entry bookkeeping was first used in the 1100s to help merchants monitor economic performance of their trading ships in the Mediterranean. Since those rules are nearly identical to the ones we now use, it is safe to say that managers and others find accounting useful, even if the rules are far from perfect. To understand the benefits and weaknesses of accounting, it helps to understand why managers use financial accounting. Those needs are often different from the needs of investors or financial analysts, and include the following: 1. Understand an organization’s financial condition. a. Does the firm have adequate funding? b. Can it pay dividends? c. Does it have sufficient resources to acquire another firm? 2. Understand an organization’s operating performance. a. Is performance improving or worsening? b. How profitable is each product or product line? c. How well has a manager performed? d. Is an offer to buy one of your divisions, or your entire firm, a fair offer? e. If your firm wishes to acquire......

...exchange signals. For example, suppose a segment leading from your company’s data center to a group of workstations uses fiber-optic cable, but the workgroup hub can only accept twisted pair (copper) cable. In that case, you could use a media converter to interconnect the hub with the fiber-optic cable Coaxial Cable * Coaxial cable consists of a central metal core (often copper) surrounded by an insulator, a braided metal shielding, called braiding or shield, and an outer cover, called the sheath or jacket. * * Because of its shielding, most coaxial cable has a high resistance to noise. It can also carry signals farther than twisted pair cabling before amplification of the signals becomes necessary (although not as far as fiber-optic cabling). * On the other hand, coaxial cable is more expen- sive than twisted pair cable because it requires significantly more raw materials to manufacture. * Coaxial cabling comes in hundreds of specifications, although you are likely to see only two or three types of coax in use on data networks. * RG-6—A type of coaxial cable that is characterized by an impedance of 75 ohms and contains an 18 AWG conducting core. The core is usually made of solid copper. RG-6 coaxial cables are used, for example, to deliver broadband cable Internet service and cable TV, particularly over long distances. If a service provider such as Comcast or Charter supplies you with Internet service, the cable entering your home is RG-6.......
