Interpretation Project 1

In reading the assigned passage, Matthew 24:43-25:13, what I come away with is Jesus’ heart for preparing those whom he called. A few versus before this passage, in Matthew 24:36, we read that even Jesus does not know the day or hour of his return so he is instilling principles in his disciples about being ready for his return. These principles where recorded in the New Testament as well as passed down by early church leaders. Jesus was teaching his church about being prepaid for his return. I can only imagine what it would be like to wake up and realize that my house had been broken into in the middle of the night and I had lost something of value to me. I would think to myself that if only I would have a dog or an alarm system to alert me that I could have saved my possessions. The point that Jesus is making is that we will not get that warning and the possession at risk here is our eternal soul. This is such a strong and vivid illustration that Paul echoes it in 2 Thessalonians 5:2 as does Peter in 2 Peter 3:10. The next illustration has to do with a house as well. This time we are not the master but the servant. Jesus had taught the disciples that the greatest amongst them would be the servant. We are here as servants of Jesus who are to be busy making disciples. A true heart of repentance will seek to make disciples. How serious are we taking our assignment from the master? This passage tells us what will happen to those who were not busy about their task when the master returns, and it promises that he will return unexpectedly. The next picture that Jesus paints for us is of the 10 virgins waiting on the bride groom. Not all of them were prepared for him and they did not know when he was coming. In Matthew 7:21 we read that not everyone who claims to be a Christian is a Christian. I believe that this…...

Criticial Interpretation of Genesis 1

...Gen 1:1-2:4a World Behind the text Historical and Cultural Context Genesis illustrates the way Biblical writers J (Yahwist), E (Elohist) and P (Priestly) drew upon the cultural and religious legacy of the Ancient Near East (ANE) along with its stories and imagery and transformed it to conform to a new vision of a non-mythological God and a monotheistic, superior religion. “The Pentateuch developed against the background of the Ancient Near Eastern culture first cultivated in and spread by Sumerian, Assyrian, and Babylonian empires”. This exemplifies how Israelite religion, was “shaped by responses to and reactions against this culture due both to contacts with neighboring Canaanites and to conflicts with Assyrian and Babylonian empires”. Genesis 1:1-2:4a can therefore be said to reflect the “Babylonian account of creation, which we call Enuma Elish…known from at least 1700 BCE,” “predating the earliest text of Genesis by at least a millennium.” In both Genesis and the ancient Babylonian myth, water is divided into upper and lower waters. The Enuma Elish is recorded on seven tablets and the Genesis account is completed in seven days. The Babylonians created humans to serve as slaves yet in Genesis God creates humans in the likeness of the divine. The Priestly source penned the creation story with the intent of being a “monumental historiographic composition…with the purpose of portraying both the beginnings of mankind and Israel in the spirit of a monotheistic......

...Project Part 1: Multi-Layered Security Plan Loren Miller NT2580 Monday PM Introduction: Describe each layer of the Open System Interconnection (OSI) Model. List a security feature of each layer if it applies. List the protocol of each layer if it applies. List types of attacks that are you protecting against in each layer. Your goal is to be able to protect a web hosting company that has a global presence. This web hosting company supports customers in the following industries: Medical, Financial, and Governmental. Physical Layer: The Physical Layer defines the physical properties of the network, such as voltage levels, cable types, and interface pins (Baker). Any attack on the Physical Layer would have to be some type of physical action, like disrupting a power source, changing of interface pins, or cutting the actual cables. Simply tampering with someone’s fuse box outside their office can cause a disruption of service. Faulty power is a problem that can be caused accidentally by the power company, or intentionally by your competitor tampering with the fuse box. A smaller business may consider installing an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) which may help avoid many unrecoverable power associated problems. The addition of a UPS to your critical system will give you time to perform an orderly shutdown when power is interrupted. An abrupt termination of power to any electrical equipment has potential for great damage. Much in the same way you might protect your......

...Project Alverenga Project Part 1 Task 1 The business needs; must comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).   The business must comply with SOX, because the business is publicly-trading financial institution; PCI-DSS, because the business processes online credit card transactions; and GLBA, because the business is a financial institution.   All of the regulations of these three compliancy laws must be met, while still maintaining the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) triad. All security requirements for SOX, PCI-DSS, and GLBA can be achieved using Linux and open source infrastructure.   Some examples of open source software that we might use are: Web Server - Apache     Web Filtering - DansGuardian           Network Firewall - Turtle Firewall     VPN - Endian Firewall Community         IDS/IPS - Suricata       Database - MySQL     File Server - Samba SMTP Server - hMailServer I would recommend that we use a "Defense in Depth" strategy, having multiple layers of access protection.   We need to have an IDS/IPS on both sides of our edge firewall.   The inside IDS/IPS will be used as additional protection for our network and the outside IDS/IPS will serve as an early warning system from attacks.   We will also use the outside IDS/IPS for additional protection and to monitor what types of attacks are occurring.   Our web server and mail......

...Project 1 Berkeley has a Mediterranean climate with discrete season both wet and dry. In the tardy spring and early fall, vigorous sea winds bring drought weather conditions including heat and dryness in these types of areas. In the spring, this is not customarily a quandary as vegetation is still moist from winter rains, but extreme dryness prevails by the fall. The warmest and driest months are typically June through September, with the highest temperatures occurring in September. Mid-summer which includes July and August is often marginally cooler due to the sea breezes and fog, which are mundanely most vigorously developed then (Western Regional Climate Center, 2014). Terre Haute has a mid-latitude continental climate. Rainfall in is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year. The wettest months in the year are May and June and the warmest month of the year is July with an average maximum temperature of 87.30 degrees Fahrenheit, while the coldest month of the year is January with an average minimum temperature of 17.70 degrees Fahrenheit. Potential evapo-transpiration is the amount of water that would be evaporated under an ideal set of conditions, among which is an unlimited supply of water. In other words, it would be the water needed for evaporation and transpiration given the local environmental conditions. One of the most paramount factors that determine water demand is solar radiation. As energy input increases the injunctive authorization for water, especially...

...Case Study 1: The Curious Case of Gary McKinnon By Aicha Doudou CCJS 390 Professor Daniel Draz University of Maryland University College Gary McKinnon was a Scottish hacker who hacks into NASA computers to search for evidence of aliens and extraterrestrial technology. He believes the NASA and other US government were hiding something from the public and that they had classified documents about Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). It all started in 2000 when he decided to look for UFO evidence on the U.S. government's computer systems. He began obsessively researching ways to break into the machines. Using the Perl programming language, he wrote a small script that he says allowed him to scan up to 65 000 machines for passwords in under 8 minutes. After dialing up the government systems, he ran the code and made an astonishing discovery: Many federal workers failed to change the default passwords on their computers. On these unsecure machines, McKinnon installed a software program called Remotely Anywhere, which allows remote access and control of computers over the Internet. McKinnon could then browse through the machines at his leisure and transfer or delete files. Because he was able to monitor all activity on the computers, he could log off the moment he saw anyone else logging on. It is claimed that between February 2001 and March 2002, Gary McKinnon hacked into dozens of US army, navy, air force, and Department of Defense computers, as well as 16 NASA computers...

...The Security Analysis Project What is this project? This project provides an opportunity to get some hands-on experience applying investment theory and models to real firms. In the process, participants will get a chance to: evaluate the risk profile of a firm and examine the sources of risk; analyze its capital structure and decide whether the firm is under- or over-leveraged; examine its dividend policy and decide whether the firm is under- or over-leveraged; and value the firm. How is the project structured? This is a project requiring by individual analysis and group synthesis. Each group should have at least 5 members but not to exceed 7. Each group will pick an industry to study. Each group member will pick a firm within this chosen industry to analyze. The companies chosen does not imply that they be competitors. For instance, a group can pick a company that manufactures personal computers, a company that produces software, and a company that provides computer services as part of the same group. Each person will be responsible for doing the entire analysis for the company that he or she has chosen. At the end of the process, the group will write one integrated report for all the firms in the group. In this report, the firms will be compared and contrasted and the results will be presented as a whole rather than as five separate parts. How will the project be graded? Each group will be graded on the final project and all of the presentations......

Dream Interpretation Part 1

...The interpretation of dreams by dream experts may be almost as old as dreaming itself. We know that all humans, and many animals, dream every night, and humans have always been fascinated to learn what causes dreams and what they mean. Freud rightly termed dreams "The Royal Road to the Unconscious". In the next few months I am going to build up a section on dreams which will allow you a far greater understanding of them. I begin toay with a basic introduction. The interpretation of dreams dates back at least as far as 3000-4000 B.C. We know that because the interpretations of dreams were recorded in permanent form on clay tablets. It is thought that many primitive peoples were unable to initially distinguish between the real world and the dream world. In many cases, these people looked upon the dream world as an extension of the physical world around them, and in many cases they saw the dream world as more powerful than the waking one. This of course could be said to have a lot of credibility because what we do not acknowledge in ourselves does tend to come up from the unconscious and affect our lives when we least expect it. Many early societies developed sophisticated ways of working with dreams. This is where the ideas of "creative dreaming" and "lucid dreaming"comes from Dream interpretation was so important to the ancient Greek and Roman's that dream interpreters often accompanied generals and other military leaders into battles. Dreams were taken extremely...

Interpretation Project Bible 110

...Liberty University Bible 110 1. What does this small story tell us about Jesus? Try to discover the central message of this story, and then write it out. Read the stories/passages before (Matt 24:36–44) and after (Matt 25:1–13) the text you chose and write out their main messages. This story in Matthew 24:45-51 tells us that Jesus wants us to represent Him in everything we do. Sometimes we as Christian can become lazy and tend to slack off on being examples of Christ. I believe this scripture verse is also telling us about the second coming of Christ. We need to always be ready for when the time comes, because we as humans have no idea when the Lord will come again. He expects us to represent Him well and to be an example for Him all the time. Matthew 24:36-44 is also reminding us that we need to be prepared for the second coming of the Lord. I also believe that this scripture verse has an underlying point to minister to the people we are working hand in hand with. Again in Matthew 25:1-13 it tells us to be prepared and always ready for the Lord’s coming. We don’t want to be unprepared like the foolish virgins instead we want to strive to be like the wise virgins who brought enough oil to last them the night. Edward Schweizer gives a great summary of being like the wise virgins, “those who are wise are those whose eyes are open to what is yet to come and do not live simply for the day. They rake along an emergency supply of oil, thinking beyond the immediate......

...Interpretation Project 1 Step 1: What is the central message of each episode? | Matthew 24:36–44 | Matthew 24:45–51 | Matthew 25:1–13 | The point of this episode is that the Lord will come back and no one but God the father will no when. Not even the Angels will know. We will not know the hour that he will come. We are to be ready at all times for his return, for he will return at a time we would not expect. | This episode talks about Christians as servants to the Lords house. It teaches that we are to remain diligent in his teachings and always be prepared. We are not to give up on his return and given in to evil ways. He has told us that when he returns will be a surprise. | This episode continues to emphasize being prepared at all times. It also lets us know that we must be prepared ourselves that others cannot be prepared for us. We must not tarry or take lightly God requires of us. | Step 2: What is the gospel writer trying to communicate to his readers by the way he connects the 3 stories together? | Matt 24:36–44; Matt 24:45–51; Matt 25:1–13 The connection appears to be clear. The writer connects that the coming of Jesus is going to happen. We won’t know when, but it will happen. No matter what we do we, are to stay prepared, stay faithful, be vigilent. Jesus will return and we won’t know when. If we are not prepared we will miss out. We will be left behind. The first part establishes that he is coming. “The elect of God are scattered......
