The History of Dinosaurs
The History of Dinosaurs The dinosaurs were reptiles that appeared about 230 million years ago. It's believed that they had scaly skin and some ate plants and others ate meat. Scientists don't know whether or not the dinosaurs were cold blooded, but they think the smaller ones were warm blooded, and the large ones were cold-blooded. In this report you'll learn about the earliest dinosaurs, the kinds of dinosaurs, and how the dinosaurs died. There are two main groups of the earliest dinosaurs: T

Originating as merely an area of interest for scientists, genetic engineering has now become an area of which all people should be somewhat knowledgeable.

It is sometimes simply called System Development. It involves a number of stages representing a standard strategy for taking a problem from start to finish. Two approaches: 1.

Technology plays a major role in international trade. Databases, overnight delivery and faxes have opened the world market to not only larger companies but small ones too. To add to this globalization, companies and even competitors are combining and forming alliances to cut cost and increase the profit margin.

Flat Fee vs Pay-per-use
Flat Fee vs. Pay-per-use Most Internet users are either not charged to access information, or pay a low-cost flat fee. The Information SuperHighway, on the other hand, will likely be based upon a pay-per-use model. On a gross level, one might say that the payment model for the Internet is closer to that of broadcast (or perhaps cable) television while the model for the Information SuperHighway is likely to be more like that of pay-per-view T.V. Pay-per-use environments affect user access habi

Direct-Mail Advertising As consumers, we are often bombarded by different types of advertisements each day. Whether it¹s by television, newspaper, or billboards, advertising has reached us one way or another. Yet, a majority of the ads that we encounter are often meaningless and uninteresting, because of the fact that these ads are meant to reach a certain target audience. This perception seems to change, however, when we look inside our mailboxes, pick-up our telephone, and even check our e-ma

How has your understanding of events, personalities or situations been shaped by their representations in the texts you have studied? Truth is often used as a weapon whereby those with authority can take opportunities to wield their power and take ownership of the truth. The truth is always subjective and can be exploited by the power of events, personalities or situations. By understanding the way these can help manipulate the representations of veracity, divulges what influences the truth and

This is the computer problem of the next century. It is the problem that is getting much attention lately, as many people look ahead toward the future. The glitch is the problem caused by computers not recognizing the year as 2000, but rather 1900. This glitch will make many computers confused about the year, rendering them incapabl

Introduction to Databases The term database evokes different images for different people, but the concept is not technical. It is as easy to envision as a file cabinet in an office. The file cabinet and its contents are the database. Anytime that the pieces of paper pertaining to a specific function, such as a customer address file in a file cabinet, are rearranged in a meaningful order (for example, alphabetically by last name), some sort of data management function has been performed. Thus,

Introduction For many years emergency dispatching for police, fire and emergency medical services was all done manually. Dispatchers were expected to talk on the telephone to the person calling, along with talking on the radio. They had to decide who and/or what units to send and keep track of all the responding units and their needs, keeping everything on just a pad of paper and a header card. The dispatcher also had to keep track of the other units within the system and their calls and needs.
