Proposition Eight

Turn on any bay area news channel during news time and at least one story regarding opposite gender marriage will be on. The thought of the law passing in support of same gender marriage is becoming fervor among the gay community in the bay area and California. The number of people apposed to the laws changing in favor of same gender marriage is large but the number of people supporting same gender marriage is vastly growing and the youth are leading the way. The media aids in portrayal of same gender couples as if they were a style with widespread footage shown on the Internet and television. Although the media plasters traces of same gender passion throughout the Internet and television for all adolescence to see, the fact still exist that it is the civil right of each individual in the country to be treated upon fairly by the government regardless of their gender, race, and sexual preference.
The majority of people in California in favor of The California protection act that is a ballot proposition and Constitution amendment that passed by means of state election better known as proposition eight, involves the band on same couple marriage in California. The majority of people who have apposed the measure on same gender marriage may be large but the number of people in favor of same gender marriage is growing and especially among our youth in California. The trend of same gender passion is all throughout the media and television shows. One movie that exploded throughout mainstream media and society was Broke Back Mountain.

(The paper should use APA formatting, and be at least 3 double-spaced pages; 1” margins) Enclosed after #3 2. List the states in which same-sex marriages are recognized. In the United States same sex can legally marry in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Vermont and Washington, DC.

California - With the passage of Prop 8, gay and lesbian couples who were married between June and November 2008 are still legally married, but no new legal marriages can be performed in California. 3. In one paragraph, write a statement that you would use to minister to an individual that wants to get further information on why homosexuality is an abomination. Be not deceived, God is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. He that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption but he that soweth to the spirit shall of the spirit reap life everlasting. Homosexuality is a sin of the flesh and carries a stiff penalty. Romans 1:24-28 tells us that God will give them up to uncleanness because of the lust in their hearts and for......

The change would require comment in the auditor’s report in an explanatory paragraph. (b) If the company disposed of one of its two subsidiaries that had been included in its consolidated statements for prior years, no comment as to consistency needs to be made in the CPA’s audit report. The comparability of the financial statements has been affected by a business transaction, but there has been no change in any accounting principle employed or in the method of its application.

...remediation is performed before it is allowed into the trusted network. For remote access clients, authorized and unauthorized network traffic will use separate security domains such as Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) (STIG Viewer, 2011). 7. What is a VPN? Distinguish between VPN server, VPN client, VPN router, and SSL VPNS. A virtual private network (VPN) is a dedicated tunnel from one endpoint to another. The VPN tunnel can be created between a remote workstation using the public Internet and a VPN router or a secure browser and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-VPN Web site (Kim & Solomon, 2012). VPN goes between a VPN client (computer) to a VPN server (network). SSL VPNs do not need to run a VPN client to connect to the network (Netgear, 2008). 8. What is the difference between a tunnel-mode VPN and a split-tunneling VPN? A tunnel-mode VPN encapsulates the entire Internet Protocol (IP) packet, adding a new header, and then the entire diagram is encrypted. The split-tunneling VPN only encrypts traffic that is destined for or originating from hosts on the network; all other IP traffic is sent outside of the VPN connection to hosts connected on the Internet unencrypted (Inform It, n.d.). 9.

Juarez, MPH Lara Boyett, MSN, RN, ACNP-BC, CEN Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate emergency nurses’ experiences and perceptions of violence from patients and visitors in US emergency departments (EDs). Background: The ED is a particularly vulnerable setting for workplace violence, and because of a lack of standardized measurement and reporting mechanisms for violence in healthcare settings, data are scarce. Methods: Registered nurse members (n = 3,465) of the Emergency Nurses Association participated in this cross-sectional study by completing a 69-item survey. Results: Approximately 25% of respondents reported experiencing physical violence more than 20 times in the past 3 years, and almost 20% reported experiencing verbal abuse more than 200 times during the same period. Respondents who experienced frequent physical violence and/or frequent verbal abuse indicated fear of retaliation and lack of support from hospital administration and ED management as barriers to reporting workplace violence. Conclusion: Violence against ED nurses is highly prevalent. Precipitating factors to violent incidents identified by respondents is consistent with the research literature; however, there is considerable potential to......

...Assignment 8 Chapter Exercise Question 1. The goal of system design is to build a system that is effective, reliable and maintainable. A system is reliable if it handles input errors, processing errors hardware failures, or human mistakes. A system is maintainable if it is flexible, scalable and easily modified. A system is effective if it supports business requirements and meets user needs. For a successful design you need to think like user, anticipate future needs, and provide flexibility. 2. Industry leader IBM believes that the best interfaces are the ones that users do not even notice, they make sense because they do what users expect them to do. 3. There are seven habits of successful interface designers. IT professional have different view about interface design, however, most agree that good designs depend on seven basic principles. The interface designer must understand the underlying business function and how the system supports individual, department and enterprise goal. A well-designed interface can help users learn a new system rapidly and be more productive. A system analyst should understand user experience, knowledge and skill levels. From a user’s viewpoint, the interface is the most critical part of the system design because it is where he or she interacts with the system. Interface designers should focus on usability of the interface and invite feedback from the users. Lastly you should document everything, all screen designs for later use by...

...Solutions to Questions 8-1 Activity-based costing differs from tradi-tional costing systems in a number of ways. In activity-based costing, nonmanufacturing as well as manufacturing costs may be assigned to products. And, some manufacturing costs—including the costs of idle capacity—may be excluded from prod-uct costs. An activity-based costing system typically includes a number of activity cost pools, each of which has its unique measure of activity. These measures of activity often differ from the allocation bases used in traditional costing systems. 8-2 When direct labor is used as an allocation base for overhead, it is implicitly assumed that overhead cost is directly proportional to direct labor. When cost systems were originally devel-oped in the 1800s, this assumption may have been reasonably accurate. However, direct labor has declined in importance over the years while overhead has been increasing. This suggests that there is no longer a direct link between the level of direct labor and overhead. Indeed, when a company automates, direct labor is replaced by machines; a decrease in direct labor is accompa-nied by an increase in overhead. This violates the assumption that overhead cost is directly propor-tional to direct labor. Overhead cost appears to be driven by factors such as product diversity and complexity as well as by volume, for which direct labor has served as a convenient measure. 8-3 Top managers provide leadership that is needed to properly motivate...

...Week 8 Project You are a portfolio manager for the XYZ investment fund. The objective for the fund is to maximize your portfolio returns from the investments on four alternatives. The investments include (1) stocks, (2) real estate, (3) bonds, and (4) certificate of deposit (CD). Your total investment portfolio is $1,000,000. Investment Returns Based on the returns from the past five years, you concluded that the investment annual returns on stocks are 10%, on real estates are 7% on bonds are 4% and on CD is 1%. Risk Constraints However, you also have to analyze the risks associate with each investment category. A wildly used risk measurement parameter is called Value at Risk (VaR). (Note: VaR measures the risk of loss on a specific portfolio of financial assets.) For example, given a million dollar stock investment, if a portfolio of stocks has a one-day 4% VaR, there is a 5% probability that the stock portfolio will fall in value by more than 1,000,000 * 0.04 = $40,000 over a one day period. In the portfolio, the VaR for stock investments is 6%. Similarly, the VaR for real estate investment is 2% and the VaR for bond investment is 1% and the VaR for investment in CD is 0%. To manage the portfolio, you decided that at 5% probability, your VaR for stocks cannot exceed $25,000, VaR for real estate cannot exceed $15,000, VaR for bonds cannot exceed $2,500 and the VaR for CD investment is $0.
