...copies of the registration (copy for the student, accountant, registrar and dean). Students were consuming a lot of time in doing such. Since the students are manually filling-up the official documents of the school, data redundancy has a great possibility in causing further complexity in the enrollment process. The enrollment itself can be considered as the problems for the students. From evaluation to validation, it is a long process, and students have to go back and forth in different offices to complete the enrollment procedures. It can be tiring and such a waste of effort for them. Through Online Enrollment System, it is easy now for the students to enroll. Objectives General Objectives                 our general objective is obviously to help ease the problem in managing records on enrolling old and new students.

The General

...because of how he did it. Harold Lloyd made us laugh as much, Charlie Chaplin moved us more deeply, but no one had more courage than Buster. I define courage as Hemingway did: "Grace under pressure." In films that combined comedy with extraordinary physical risks, Buster Keaton played a brave spirit who took the universe on its own terms, and gave no quarter. I'm immersed in his career right now, viewing all of the silent features and many of the shorts with students at the University of Chicago. Having already written about Keaton's "The General" (1927) in this series, I thought to choose another title. "The Navigator," perhaps, or "Steamboat Bill, Jr.," or "Our Hospitality." But they are all of a piece; in an extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies. Most of these movies were long thought to be lost. "The General," with Buster as a train engineer in the Civil War, was always available, hailed as one of the supreme masterpieces of silent filmmaking. But other features and shorts existed in shabby, incomplete prints, if at all, and it was only in the 1960s that film historians began to assemble and restore Keaton's lifework. Now almost everything has been recovered, restored, and is available on DVDs and tapes that range from watchable to sparkling. It's said that Chaplin wanted you to like him, but Keaton didn't care. I think he cared, but was......

...revolution. This would not have been possible if not for Ford and his revolution of the motor industry via the assembly. As the car industry grew, it created its own sort of revolution. This would not have been possible if not for Ford and his revolution of the motor industry via the assembly line. Karl Benz founded Benz & Cie. (the first major automobile manufacturer in the world) thereby paving the way for all future automobile manufacturers. Although the first internal combustion engine was made in 1807 by Isaac De Rivaz, Benz made the first practical internal combustion engine. Benz made his first car the Benz patent-motor wagon in 1885. Benz made three versions of this, the third gaining the attention of people worldwide. Between 1889 and 1899 the number of people Benz & CIE employed increased almost tenfold. In 1899 Benz & CIE was the largest car manufacturer in the world, having produced 3,400 automobiles thus far. Karl Benz brought automobiles and their uses to the public’s attention and inspired many people to start their own automobile related businesses. At this time automobiles were still out of reach for the majority of people due to the cost to produce each car. Henry ford (is/was/0 not the first person to use assembly lines. Henry Ford was however the first person to adapt the assembly line method for mechanical assembly.

Airmen Off the Assembly Line

...Abstract Precise, controlled, disciplined, uniform. All of these words are synonymous with the ideas of the military. Many times the military has also been compared to a machine. Everything working together, all mechanisms lined up, each piece doing its part. Much like an auto maker's assembly line the Air Force technical training school house works efficiently to push brand new Airmen out to start being part of the organizational mission. The question remains though, can keeping this approach to training the future of the Air Force maintain the quality of Airmen in both technical skills and military training? Throughout this paper there will be an analysis of the methods in which technical training is accomplished for Air Traffic Controllers in the Air Force and how there could be a more productive way to manage the students, the instructors, and the training. Keywords: Air Traffic Controllers, Airmen, technical training Airmen Off the Assembly Line Imagine being a brand new Airman in the Air Force. You have just completed a rigorous eight weeks in basic training where every single minute was planned and you were constantly being yelled at by your Military Training Instructor. You graduate with a relief thinking that the hard part is over, however Basic Training was the easy part. As AF.mil (2006) explains: After basic training, Airmen assigned to be ATCs will attend a 72-day Air Traffic Control operator course at Keesler Air Force Base, Miss....

The Assembly Process

...The Splendor of the Assembly Process in Manufacturing Abstract The assembly process is both unique and versatile, and presents an interesting way to look at all manufacturing processes as a whole instead of individual pieces. By examining the different methods and materials that make up today’s products it will be shown how the assembly process is the most versatile and mandatory process in manufacturing. Examining the different methods and materials reveals the uniqueness of the assembly process and how it can literally be applied to any product, method, or material in manufacturing. This will also high light the importance of the advancement of the assembly process both past and present. Studying the industrial revolution provides key elements in how the manufacturing industry has become what it is today. From the invention of the flying shuttle to the innovation behind the assembly line, it can be determined that the development of assembly process machinery and technology is the key to the advancement of our economy and country as a whole. These minor ripples in the pool of industry ended up causing tsunamis and forever changing the landscape of the country as we know it. Looking back at the technological advancements of the industrial revolution it becomes clear that we are on the verge of yet another revolution in industry. The introduction of auto-CAD and the 3-D printer have already started the next wave in what is sure to become a tsunami in......

'Dapper Laughs' Assembly

...Dapper Laughs As I begin this assembly, I must apologise to the house as a whole. This assembly does not have any motivational sporting or academic message, and unforgivably does not intertwine with current sporting events – with no reference to the staggering form of Wycombe Wanderers this season. So, as I have rudely broken this previously unmentioned tradition of Ridley House assembly, I can only reassure you that all shall be returned to normality next week. From Private Walker in Dad’s Army to Mickey Pearce in Only Fools and Horses, encompassing Gaz from Geordie Shore, Jay from The Inbetweeners, Mark Wright from TOWIE, and many more, audiences have habitually been entertained by the “woman-hungry geezer” character of popular culture. This product of 21st century Britain, characterised by stand alone augmented biceps, dressed usually in some form of vest top with ‘Hype.’ or ‘Ibiza’ scrawled across its front, with a haircut suspiciously similar to my own, these dubious alpha-males frequent most urban centres of the UK. But lads will be lads. Compared to similar figures of the past, there’s a moment in the opening credits of Happy Days where the Fonz approaches a mirror to perfect his quiff, then realises he is, in fact, already staring at the vision of perfection. Though such actions of the Fonz are ridiculous and ego-driven, they are loveable and above all – harmless. However, his perception that the opposite sex were mainly non-thinking vessels put on earth as future...

Freedome of Assembly

...Freedom of Assembly Maria R. Quinionez-Sheehan St. Gregory’s University Freedom of Assembly Out of the first ten Amendments, called the Bill of Rights, the one that is considered the most important is the first Amendment. It is considered as such because it protects the rights that we hold dearest, and it is important to a democratic government by stating what it is not allowed to do. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances (The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration , 2014). In 1787, James Madison received a letter from Thomas Jefferson discussing how wrong it was to not include a Bill of Rights in the Constitution, and made the statement "A bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth" (Exploring Constitutional Conflicts, 2014). One of the important rights guaranteed in the first Amendment, freedom of assembly, it is important to a properly functioning democracy. Political parties rely on this right, ensuring that they are free to interact with others in order to inspire confidence among their constituents and hold political rallies and conventions sponsoring presidential candidates. Society as a whole relies in part on the rights guaranteed by the first amendment, and limitations......

Ford Assembly Line

...Ford Assembly Line! Word Count: 1,811 I. Image of my innovation that I was allocated The Ford Assembly Line II. The innovation Product and the Process: The ford assembly line is a manufacturing process developed by Ford, which quickened process of producing cars in the early 1900’s. The product that it first helped was the car a Ford Model T. Henry Ford and many other individual’s whom were involved in Ford, came up with the idea of the assembly line in the years between 1908 and 1915 and consequently made the assembly line famous in the following decade for mass production throughout the world. They based their idea on how a slaughterhouse was run, with a conveyer belt moving animals while they were being butchered. The process of the Ford Assembly Line is as follows parts are added to the product in this case the Ford Model T, in an organised manner (for example engine first, then hood, and then the wheels) in which creates the car in a much faster fashion than if it was done by having the car in one spot and waiting till one aspect of the car was done to do the next one. Having people ready at each individual station waiting for the next car to be moved to them too add whatever is needed from the station that they are working at. No heavy lifting done with cars being moved along. Car pieces moved throughout the factory on conveyor belts. III. The Impact of the Ford Assembly Line: A radical innovation. The impact of this innovation was huge, not......

Fluidic Self Assembly

...A REVIEW OF FLUIDIC SELF ASSEMBLY Towards the fulfillment of course requirement for EE5171 Under Prof. Stephen Campbell Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Minnesota, Twin Cities By: Manan M Dedhia ID # 4279398 M.S. Graduate student Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Minnesota, Twin Cities THE INTEGRATION of microelectromechanical systems(MEMS) sensors and actuators with other classes of microcomponents—electronic, optical, and fluidic—onto a single substrate has the potential to create powerful and complex microsystems. To increase device performance and thus realize the potential of microsystems, it is now accepted that the integration must occur at the micro scale. There are two possible routes: either the micro-components are fabricated at their desired locations in a single process, or they are fabricated separately and then positioned using micro assembly techniques. Since many classes of micro components cannot be co-fabricated effectively due to materials and process incompatibilities, several research groups are developing micro assembly approaches. In the micro assembly route, different classes of micro components are fabricated in separate processes, removed from their substrates, and assembled onto a target substrate of choice. For most applications, sub micrometer positioning and methods for establishing high-quality mechanical and electrical connections to the substrate are required. As in co fabrication, small-area......
