Facebook - The Beginning of a New Era

Facebook - The Beginning of a New Era
Facebook represents the beginning of a new era. Developed by Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, Facebook has risen through the years to become the world’s most popular social networking site, ahead of Twitter. The site has created a global communication platform, connecting people from every corner of the world.
Facebook has woven the world into a global village. The social site has bridged the distance between people worldwide, allowing them to keep up with global issues like news, trends, relations and relationships.
The global village created by Facebook serves as a global meeting place. With its popularity and large database of users, the free application has made life easier for its users. People can take advantage of the meetings to make their announcements such as emergencies or celebrations with assurance that they will reach a lot of people within a short time. This is a reliable marketing platform for entrepreneurs, marketers, celebrities and politicians. Facebook also offers mini-blogging features, saving the cost of dedicating a whole website to share ideas and products. The users create or join groups and pages where they meet people who share similar interests.
Despite its success in connecting people globally, Facebook, like any other site, has been facing user privacy and security concerns. However, with regard to privacy, this should not be a big challenge. Facebook, like any other social site, is user driven, meaning that the user is able to control information flow in his/her profile by using the privacy and security features. The user, therefore, is the one who decides what to upload to the internet and what to keep private. Users are always requested not to share important private information not only in Facebook, but in other…...

...support ratio’ to illustrate the changing size of the working–age population relative to the dependent population (those who are either too young or too old to work). This particular ratio measures the working population relative to the consuming population. Mason refines the ratio to incorporate age variation in productivity and consumption. Mason shows that the economic support ratio for Southeast Asia fell during the 1950’s and 1960’s. This was the period of the first stage of the demographic transition, illustrated in the graph 4.1 below. Then beginning in 1970 the economic support ratio rose rapidly, and is projected to continue to rise for some time to come. This corresponds to the second phase of the demographic transition illustrated by the graph 4.2 below. Graph 4.1 Graph 4.2 Graph 4.3 These Asian economies were characterized by, maximum use of high–yielding crop varieties, and investing massively in the further development of new varieties; low fertilizer prices, increased food supply. In fact food output per capita increased by 36% in Asia and 47% in East Asia between 1963 and 1992 (contrast Latin America, with only a 13% increase and Africa with a decline of 7%). (Mason- 2003) 6. Lessons to be Learned First Demographic dividend usually occurs late in the demographic transition when the fertility rate falls and the youth dependency rate declines. During this demographic window of opportunity, output per capita rises. The demographic dividend played a role in......

The third section will discuss the advantages and disadvantages for a tourism provider using direct selling. Finally, the essay will be concluded summarising the key advantages and disadvantages for direct selling. In the past, travel agents have been an intermediary for tourists and tourism sellers. Travel agents have been used by tourists to access a wide range of tourism service providers; likewise tourism providers have used travel agents to gain access to numerous customers (Frost, 2004). Due to the extreme competition in the tourism industry, tourism providers are looking to cut costs in order to win over customers with lower prices. This is currently being done by cutting down on the commission costs payed to intermediary such as travel agents and introducing direct selling.

Federated Searching: a New Era

...Federated Searching: A New Era “Only librarians like to search; everyone else likes to find” (Tennant, 2003). While most librarians teach research strategies including: Boolean logic, accessing carefully chosen databases, and indexing; students are often discouraged and frustrated using these techniques. Most students simply want to Google their requests. For many students a simple keyword search is a convenient, simple process for locating information. Federated searching is providing options that may strike a happy medium for students and librarians alike by providing a keyword option to access the library’s databases. Federated searching is software or a service that allows multiple sources to be searched simultaneously. A library is required to purchase software and/or a service agreement from a vendor that provides access to information in the databases and on the Web. Using a search protocol, like Z39.50, the engine scans various databases, the Web, and library catalogs concurrently and provides an organized result for the searcher’s query. Metasearches are performed across both bibliographic and full-text databases. One major advantage of a federated search is that the query does not have to be repeated with various databases. When federated searching works well, it reduces the amount of time students spend locating data and encourages them to search for more information. “The goal of many federated search tools is to make the interface as simple and streamlined...

A couple of mouth before I left the organization, there were rumours that a new CEO was coming along and was planning for a big change. “A transformation could be in the works for Second Cup Ltd. with the hiring of new CEO Alix Box, who brings a marketing and retail pedigree to the coffee chain from executive roles at Holt Renfrew and Starbucks2.” Managers were shaken up by this change for two reasons: Alix came from Starbucks which is Second Cups direct competitor and because she had already started firing people from hire levels of the organization. “For the past six years, Alix has been a member of the senior leadership team at Holt Renfrew, most recently as Senior Vice President, Retail.  During this period, she helped lead a......

...of mystery and the condescending of darkness as the reader continues to read. The syntax of sentence structure is short and to the point in Achebe’s view of Africa. Compared to Conrad’s, he talks about one problem and takes the whole paragraph to describe what is going on. Detail, however, in Achebe’s paragraphs are just the right amount. They do display it’s view of what’s going on pretty well. In the first paragraph of Achebe’s, “The sun rose slowly to the center of the sky, and the dry, sandy footway began to throw up the heat that lay buried in it.” She does give a good view of what’s going on in the beginning of the paragraph and spends in decent amount of detail. Compared to Conrad’s first paragraph, he does give a place to where and what he is doing but gives the little detail about what’s going on. “Going up that river was like traveling back to the earliest beginnings of the world.” He mentions going up the river but hardly explained where he’s at and the area in which surrounds him. In conclusion, Achebe has a better view when talking about organizations, syntax, and details to what is going on....

The New Era

...Mount Mercy University The New Era Justine Nurre HI 115 Edy Parsons March 13, 2015 In the 1920’s America economy grew greatly. The output from the nation’s manufacturing rose by greater than 60%, inflation was minor and the per capita income grew by a third. These happened because several things like technology. Technology was the most important development in which it helped develop the assembly line. This in turn led to automobiles becoming the most important industries in the nation. Automobiles made it possible for suburban housing and that led to a boom in the construction industry. Another technological gadget that contributed to the economic growth was the radio. The first radios could only send little broadcasts through pulses, but because of the discovery of the theory of modulation the radio was able to transmit music and speech. Many people started to build their own radios to save cost and it allowed owners to stay in contact with one another. Even though the economy was doing so well in 1929, more than two-thirds of Americans lived in conditions that were described as “minimum comfort level.” Half of those Americans were either at or below what was described as “subsistence and poverty.” During the 1920’s, Americans were able to experience successes and failures. Some workers started to see their standard of living begin to increase and others saw techniques that were known as “welfare capitalism.” Welfare capitalism workers still saw...

A New Beginning

...A New Beginning As many can tell you, life for a minority in the 1950’s was rough considering the strides that had been taken in the name of human and civil rights until that point. Slavery had long ended yet segregation was still common practice in various parts of the United States. Although every American is promised life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it’s apparent how life can be different based on subtle differences from person to person. A Raisin in the Sun gives us a slight glimpse into what life could have been like for a black family during those times. The family in question is the Youngers. They are a small, close knit group who all want to find some sense of security in an unfair world. Lena, Walter, Beneatha and Ruth Younger all have a dream as to how they can escape the life of poverty that they have been living yet it still comes at a significant cost with the death of the patriarch, Mr. Younger. The Youngers are all waiting for his life insurance check of $10,000 to arrive while each member of the family has an idea of how they would like to spend the money. Lena, the matriarch, would like to use the money as a down payment on a house so that her family may have a fresh, new dignified start. The apartment they have been living in is cramped, worn and dark with no room to grow for their expanding family just like Lena’s house plant that receives just enough light and energy to stay alive despite the conditions facing it. Walter, Lena’s son, on the......

New Beginning

...A toast to a new beginning Growing up in suburban Lahore, New Year’s eves used to be a quiet event. Yet excitement for the New Year was evident in the spirit of every child and adult. New Year’s Eve was the celebration of a new beginning. Something to be jubilant about. It was a time for a simple gesture of wishing health and wealth to all, and the best that life could give to all. Indeed, the New Year promised a bright future. Even today, the charm of the New Year’s Eve continues to thrill. Despite the face paced life, it offers a chance for friends and family to come together and celebrate a joyous occasion. It is a new hope harbored into an old fashioned cheer. It is here, as the clock approaches midnight that spirits are rekindled. However, standing united, facing a new beginning, my peers do stop for a moment and remember the past floating by. True, the year 2009 saw numerous challenges, many battles and much heartache. The economy painted a bleak picture. The woes of a common man mounted to new levels. Our land was in constant grip of terror. We lost many fellow countrymen as brave martyrs of terrorism. Indeed 2009 was a difficult year. It made the transition to 2010 a solemn attempt. But that’s the beauty of a New Year. A moment artificial yet so profound. It brings a new dawn. It is a chance to redeem oneself. It offers a brand new path to success. It is an opportunity to rise above and make a difference. A new year brings with it the making of new goals,......

The New Era of Cars

...Tyler Gates Robotics Essay The New Era of Cars An autonomous car, also known as a self-driving car or robotic car, is an autonomous vehicle capable of fulfilling the main transportation capabilities of a traditional car. As an autonomous vehicle, it is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Autonomous vehicles sense their surroundings with such techniques as radar, LIDAR, GPS, Odometry, and computer vision. Advanced control systems interpret sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signage. By definition, autonomous vehicles are capable of updating their maps based on sensory input, allowing the vehicles to keep track of their position even when conditions change or when they enter uncharted environments. Autonomous cars have control systems that are capable of analyzing sensory data to distinguish between different objects on the road, which is very useful in planning a path to the desired destination. Google’s self-driving car is any in a range of autonomous cars, developed by Google X as part of its project to develop technology for mainly electric cars. The software installed in Google's cars is called Google Chauffeur. Lettering on the side of each car identifies it as a "self-driving car". The project was formerly led by Sebastian Thrun, former director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and co-inventor of Google Street View. Thrun's team at Stanford created the......

New World Beginnings

...the gold and silver deposits found in the New World, the European economy was transformed. The islands of the Caribbean Sea served as offshore bases for the staging of the Spanish invasion of the mainland Americas. By the 1530s in Mexico and the 1550s in Peru, colorless colonial administrators had replaced the conquistadores. Some of the conquistadores wed Indian women and had children. These offspring were known as mestizos and formed a cultural and biological bridge between Latin America's European and Indian races. The Conquest of Mexico In about 1519, Hernan Cortes set sail from Cuba with men and horses. Along the way, he picked up two translators - A Spanish prisoner of Mayan-speaking Indians, and an Indian slave named Malinche. The Spaniards arrived at Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital with the intention of stealing all of the gold and other riches; they were amazed by the beauty of the capitol. On June 30, 1520, the Aztecs attacked the Spanish because of the Spaniards' lust for riches. The Spanish countered, though, and took over the capital and the rest of the Aztec empire on August 13, 1521. Due to the rule of the Spanish, the Indian population in Mexico went from 20 million to 2 million in less than a century. The Spread of Spanish America In 1565, the Spanish built a fortress at St. Augustine, Florida to protect the sea-lanes to the Caribbean. In 1680, after the Spanish captured an area known today as New Mexico in 1609, the natives launched a......
