Descriptive Statics
Being a former employee with the Secretary of State Driver Services
Department, also known as the Driver’s License Facility. There are a number of ways in which the organization displays the use of descriptive statics. According to Lind,
“descriptive statistics is defined as methods of organizing, summarizing, and presenting data in an informative way.” The Secretary of State’s office is one of the largest and most diverse offices of its kind. It provides more direct services to Illinois citizens than any other public agency. When an Illinois citizen comes in contact with the state government, it is most often through the Secretary of State’s office. Secretary White’s administration is committed to making the office’s services the most accessible and customer friendly in the nation. The Office of the Secretary of State is visited by more Illinois residents than any other in state government. The Driver Services Department issues licenses to more than 8.5 million drivers and more than 3 million photo identification cards to drivers and non- drivers at more than 130 locations. The office generates approximately $2 billion in annual revenue with about $1.2 billion a year designated for state highway construction funds. The office issues vehicle license plates, titles, and collects taxes for the
Department of Revenue on vehicles and administers the states’ organ/ tissue donor registry. Without statistics this would be a task trying to account for inventory and revenue. As we use consumables and supplies, the system automatically generates and reorders new supplies, once supplies reach a certain number. Also, in regards to organ Gray 02

donor registry, there is a separate data base that holds numbers of…...

...MS-13 final MS-13 History and Origins The Mara Salvatrucha gang originated in Los Angeles, in the 1980s by Salvadoran immigrants in the neighborhood between Pico and Wilshire also know as the city's Pico-Union neighborhood. They immigrated to the United States Due to a 12-year civil war in El Salvador, which resulted in over 100,000 deaths and over a million refugees(www.ms13gang.com). The Salvadorian refugees and immigrants predominantly settled in southern California and Washington, D.C. Some of the refugees and immigrants had ties with La Mara, a violent street gang from El Salvador. Others had been members the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMNL) during the El Salvadorian civil war(Rimmer, 2009). FMNL was made up of Salvadorian peasants who were trained as guerilla fighters. Many were adept at using guerilla tactics and working with explosives, firearms, and booby traps. Salvadorians were not accepted into the Los Angeles Hispanic community, and were frequently targeted by local Hispanic and African American gangs notably the 18th street gang. Due to this suffering, in the late 1980s, some refugee members of La Mara and FMNL formed what is now known as the Mara Salvatrucha (MS) street gang. Like many other street gangs, MS initially formed for protection, but quickly developed a reputation for being organized and extremely violent criminal enterprise. The gang’s rivals took note. One, known as the Mexican Mafia, or “la eme” for short, and is one of...

Dorian Gray

...Sparknotes – Dorian Gray • Written by Oscar Wilde in 1890. • Devoted to a school of thought and a mode of sensibility known as aestheticism, Wilde believed that art possesses an intrinsic value—that it is beautiful and therefore has worth, and thus needs serve no other purpose, be it moral or political. • Dorian is a cultured, wealthy, and impossibly beautiful young man who immediately captures Basil’s artistic imagination • Although Lord Henry is a self-proclaimed hedonist who advocates the equal pursuit of both moral and immoral experience, he lives a rather staid life. • The Victorians believed that art could be used as a tool for social education and moral enlightenment, as illustrated in works by writers such as Charles Dickens and George Gissing. The aestheticism movement, of which Wilde was a major proponent, sought to free art from this responsibility. • “We are punished for our refusals. Every impulse that we strive to strangle broods in the mind, and poisons us.” • The Picture of Dorian Gray has often been compared to the famous German legend of Faust. The legend tells of a learned doctor who sells his soul to the devil in return for knowledge and magical abilities. Although Dorian Gray never contracts with the devil, his sacrifice is similar: he trades his soul for the luxury of eternal youth. • He is the last Lord Kelso's grandson. His mother was a Devereux, Lady Margaret Devereaux. Poor chap was killed in a duel at Spa a few months after the marriage.......

The Picture of Dorian Gray

...From the Writer “Dorian Gray the Escape Artist” is the culmination of my work in my WR100 seminar, Fantasy at the Fin-de-Siècle. The final assignment was to create a research paper based on an interesting problem or paradox I had found in Oscar Wilde’s book, The Picture of Dorian Gray. For me, one of the book’s most fascinating elements was Dorian’s immature behavior; though he grows older, he never seems to “grow up.” At first, I investigated how my idea related to aestheticism and what Dorian’s immaturity showed about aestheticism; however, I could not find a solid way to prove my thesis. My greatest problem was being unsure of how writing a paper based on a research problem in The Picture of Dorian Gray constituted a researchable argument and not just a literary analysis. Hoping to gain a different perspective on the assignment, I met with fellow classmates to talk out my problem. It turned out that they were having the same issue with their essays, and through discussing my paper with them, I realized that my topic was too narrow to be easily supported by sources; the idea of Dorian growing older without growing up was interesting but could not easily be supported with sources outside the novel itself. With this in mind, I modified my thesis, claiming that though Dorian Gray demonstrates aesthetic behavior in The Picture of Dorian Gray, his fascination with artistic things serves less to pursue aestheticism and more to evade his dark past. In this manner, I argued,...

...Identifying Resources available for Children with Multiple Sclerosis and their Families Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disorder of the central nervous system. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body, through its immune system, launches a defensive attack against its own tissues and can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating as contact between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. MS affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. The initial symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis are often blurred or double vision, poor contrast, eye pain, red-green color distortion, or even blindness in one eye. Most people with MS experience muscle weakness in their extremities and difficulty with coordination and balance. These symptoms may be severe enough to impair walking or standing. The worst cases of MS can produce partial or complete paralysis. Most people with MS also show par aesthesis, transitory abnormal sensory feelings such as numbness, prickling, or “pins and needles” sensations. Some people may also experience tremors, pain, dizziness, hearing loss and speech impediments. Many people with MS experience cognitive impairments such as difficulties with concentration, attention, memory, and poor judgment but such symptoms are usually mild and are frequently overlooked. Depression and anxiety is another common feature of multiple sclerosis. ......

Gray

...Alasdair Gray depicts one simple theme in his piece with rather compact yet symbolic usage of words. The narrator, is looking at Duncan, Marjory, and Thaw as if one knows every moment within the novel. (third person omniscient) By observing specific moments of the characters, narrator indirectly implies the theme: we can overcome with emotion and be deceived. (over flow of emotion) (missing a topic sentence) In the first part, Gray portrays a mysterious atmosphere with ‘semi-duck’ church, where the story is fundamentally taking place. The ‘semi-dusk’ exemplifies the untouched and mysterious air that symbolizes the loneliness of Duncan rather than symbolizing an artisan. Nevertheless, Lenzie is the opposite place of happiness and delight. This is due to the fact that Lenzie is the place where Marjory and Thaw starts their life while Duncan is becoming miserable in the place of agony and reflection, the church. Moreover, the gallery is where the agony gets intensified, narrator describing Duncan more sympathetically, mentions the mirror as the medium that embodies the deception caused by heightened emotion, ensuring the theme once again. As previously stated, Duncan, Marjory, and Thaw foreseeing different futures, the narrator emphasizes that what we look may differ according to circumstances. More precisely, the way that Duncan sees the mural reflected on the mirror as rather weird and strange. ‘Not beauty’ best represents the way he depicts the mural. This can be deduced......

Ms and Diet

...Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the Central Nervous System. There are multiple ways to treat the symptoms of MS but none more important than diet. Paying close attention to one’s diet plays a major role in improving living with MS. When I was diagnosed with MS making changes to my diet made noticeable improvements in daily functions.               Multiple Sclerosis(MS) is a disease that attacks the Central Nervous System(brain and spinal cord). The cause of MS is unknown but it is believed that environmental factors along with being genetically predisposed may trigger the disease. MS impedes signals to and from the brain which affects many bodily functions. MS is known as a immune- mediated disease, meaning that it is part of a group of diseases that don't have a “trigger” but go through inflammatory passages and lead to inflammation. More specifically MS causes the immune system to attack the myelin sheath around the nerves and the nerves themselves. The bodies T- cells, white blood cell that plays a central role in searching out and destroying objects marked as harmful to the body, carry out the destruction of the myelin sheath. Myelin is a protective fatty coating around the nerves in the Central Nervous System. Once the myelin sheath or nerve is damaged the disrupted signals lead to symptoms. There are various symptoms for MS which include any of the following: Fatigue, numbness/ tingling, weakness, vertigo, sexual dysfunction, pain,......

Gray Code

...What is Gray code? From Wikipedia The reflected binary code, also known as Gray code after Frank Gray, is a binary numeral system where two successive values differ in only one bit. The reflected binary code was originally designed to prevent spurious output from electromechanical switches. Today, Gray codes are widely used to facilitate error correction in digital communications such as digital terrestrial television and some cable TV systems. One good way to explain the use of Gray code is to take a look at how a hard drive work, in extreme simplicity. A hard drive contains a disc where information is stored. The information on the disc is stored in ones and zero´s, binaries. The disc is divided into sections which each has a binary signature. Here is a picture to explain: As we can see here, section 0 for example has the binary signature 0000 and section 15 has the binary signature 1111. When a hard drive is running it reads section by section and if the hard drive for some reason has a failure and the reader jumps from section 15 to section 0 the reading changes from 0000 to 1111 which means that every bit read is faulty. This could change alot depending on how the information is parsed. A hard drive could be exposed to a lot of external forces and the reader can jump and missread at any time. This cannot be forseen, but it can be prevented to some extent. Enter Gray code. Gray code is a way to sort the binaries so that one binary......

Ms and Pregnancy

...MS and pregnancy The diagnosis of MS should not prevent you from becoming a parent but for this purpose it is very important to consult your doctor and your family. MS affects people who have or are planning to start a family, but more often women than men. This raises many questions about causal relationship between MS and pregnancy. Although, many years ago, women with multiple sclerosis are advised to avoid pregnancy that their condition would not worsened, but today we access different insights. Studies conducted over the past few decades have shown that the symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be alleviated or even disappear during pregnancy. The analysis of works that report about 13 144 women with MS revealed the following data: * MS has no effect on pregnancy. * No increase in negative symptoms nor for mother nor for the child. * Woman with MS can expect a normal pregnancy and normal delivery. For all these reasons, women with MS, especially those with mild neurological deficits, should be encouraged to become pregnant as soon as possible due to the progressive flow of the disease. It is important to break down some of the prejudices that exist and women provide the necessary information: 1. Does MS affect on the fertility of women? 2. Does MS affect on pregnancy and the baby's health? 3. Is it possible to apply spinal or epidural anesthesia during childbirth? 4. Is it recommended breastfeeding and is it safe? 5. Does......

Solution to Roger Gray

...Solution to Roger Gray ANALYSIS This is a very familiar problem to many purchasers and plant materials managers: incorrect and late information leading to poor supply performance. A common response is to blame the information system, and ask the IT group to fix it or design a new one. Others prefer to point to inaccurate records because those who use the system fail to record their transactions properly. Successful organizations find ways of dealing with these problems, as must Roger Gray. The problems experienced by Roger Gray are typical of MRP- and MRPII-type systems. These systems provide the benefits of planning what to order and produce and when, which helps to keep costs down by minimizing inventories and avoiding unnecessary set-ups. The difficulty is that they require accurate data. Using data that is not accurate or is outdated leads to bad decisions. The case also suggests that factors other than the materials management system were contributing to the problems. Therefore, focusing on IT issues alone will not adequately address the problems. An important factor here is the high cost of a stockout. Failure to meet delivery requirements would result in customer downtime, which carries tremendous costs, particularly for Anderson’s automotive customers. Automotive OEMs charge their suppliers $300,000 to $400,000 per hour of downtime. Consequently, control over inventories is essential. Perhaps the fact that delivery reliability is important is one......

Ms Project

...MS Project Familiarization Ida Casey Dr. Kimberly Malone-Haddox BUS 375: Project Management October 18th, 2015 At first, I thought the MS Project is very difficult from a user standpoint. I felt that using the MS Project is very time consuming. As I was trying to navigate them the system, I found that I was focusing more on the actual system them inputting information. Considering that I do have a lot of experience with man of the MS office programs, I thought this program would be similar to that. I feel that if I had more tutorials where I am taught then have a quiz or even a step-by-step guide then I would feel more comfortable using it. Overall, it is a great program, but it still think that I would be able to use MS Excel to perform these tasks in MS Excel instead of MS Project. I do feel that with a little more that MS Projects is very easy and simple to use. You just have to get used to the program and take your time. I’m actually very excited about using the program now because this would help me gain some experience on implementing practice and assessments so I would be more confidence using it. But after doing a little research, I did find its purpose and why it was created for the business professional world. Two challenges that I foresee using MS Project in this course would be doing the projects accurate and actually navigating through it. When it comes to navigating through the program, it is difficult due to the extra steps when in the other MS office......

The Gray Zone

...ships inside the Lager. In describing the gray zone, Levi discusses the different roles of prisoners assigned by the Nazi. The prisoners that did the work were seen as being more privileged which at the end of the day helped them get more food and live better. Therefore, the concept of the gray zone is analyzing the difference between the privileged and the non-privileged in the Lager. The difference can be seen by the tasks that the prisoners carried out, for example, one of the groups were seen as, “Low ranking functionaries... sweepers, kettle washers, night watchmen, bed smoothers... checkers of lice and scabies, messengers, interpreters, assistants’ assistants. In general, these people poor devils like ourselves, who worked full time like everyone else but who for an extra half liter of soup were willing to carry out these and other ‘tertiary’ functions.” This group was seen as harmless and not much different than the underprivileged. The other group of prisoners in the Lager was seen as the enemies to their own people. They were referred to as the Kapos who were “free to commit the worst atrocities on their subject as punishment for any transgressions, or even without any motive whatsoever: until the end of 1943 it was not unusual for a prisoner to be beaten to death by a Kapo without the latter having to fear any sanctions.” The prisoners that became part of the Kapo were seen as permanent. They were not accepted back by their people if they were willing to......

Tchula, Ms

...The general economic decline for most Mississippi blacks since the 1960s has been accompanied by the resurrection of white racist terrorism and political violence. The tortured body of one unidentified black man was found floating down the river in Cleveland, MS. The man’s sex organs had been hacked off and the coroner later reported finding his penis in his stomach. On January 11, 1981, the body of 45-year-old Lloyd Douglas Gray was found hanging from a tree in Tallahatchie County, MS. The coroner pronounced Gray’s death as a suicide, and no autopsy was performed. A month later, the body of 32 year old Roy Washington was found in Cypress Creek, in Holmes County, MS. Washington was badly beaten in the head and face. His hands were bounded behind him and then he was shot in the head at point-blank range. The corpse was weighed down with a car jack and wrapped by barbed wire. Scars around his neck indicated that he had also been lynched. Local white newspapers were quiet about the murder. Holmes County police did not aggressively pursue leads in the case and even followed a black reporter around while he conducted his own investigation. The majority of the other black men who were found beaten or hanging in MS have also been officially labeled suicides. Familiar with the pattern of racial violence, one black resident of Tallahatchie County declares, “If they say it was suicide, it was probably a lynching.”[2] The Case of Eddie Carthan Eddie Carthan......
