Check Point Computer Comparison

When most people imagine computers, they do not see what makes up the computer system.

Most state-of-the-art systems have the same components as a personal

computer to meet any requirements you may have. Although state-of-the-art computers offer

a larger memory and storage capabilities, my personal computer offers some of the same

components and had quite a hefty price tag on it for these particular bonus features. I purchased my Apple Mac OSX specifically for school. My mother thought I was insane for

spending as much as I did, but it was the best available for what I needed. It is a compact

Computer with the built in processor, wireless keyboard and mouse, 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel

Core i5 processor with 6MB L3 Cache, 1TB hard drive, 8gb of 1600MHz DDR3 memory, 21.5

Inch screen LED backlit display with ips technology. ("Apple - os," 2013)

Despite what you would think, as an online student, the lack of mass storage and how my

computer looks is not important to me. I want to have a computer that offers the necessary

capabilities and allows me the opportunity to receive an education. A new state-of-the-art system can also allow a user the same portability as a personal computer, but with a higher price tag. A new state-of-the-art computer system has Intel Core Dual P8400 Processor that operates at a speed of 2260 MHZ or more. State-of-the-art computers have massive amounts of storage for videos, photos, and music. Many of the new systems come in a variety of unique colors and textures to appeal to today’s consumers. Most of the larger systems are fast performers but lack in power and battery life. This is why I chose a stay at home desktop. I have been through…...

...Protein Article Research Protein is an essential part of a healthy diet. It is made of different combinations of 20 different amino acids. Protein is found in every cell, tissue, and organ of the body. It is important to consume an adequate amount of protein because our bodies are constantly using the protein we digest to make more amino acids. Some amino acids cannot be produced by the body and it is essential that our diet contain them. There are different types of protein and they are labeled according to the amount and type of amino acids they contain. The first is known as a complete protein source. Complete protein sources contain all of the essential amino acids. They are also known as high quality proteins. The other is known as an incomplete protein source. This is a protein source that lacks one or more of the essential amino acids. Proteins can be consumed in conjunction in order to make up all of the essential amino acids. This is called complementary proteins. ("Center for Disease Control and Prevention", n.d.). Finding the proper balance of protein is extremely important for overall health. Eating a diet high in protein poses many health risks. The risk factor for heart disease and cancer is increased when a diet contains too much protein. Animal proteins contain a higher fat content which leads to higher cholesterol which plays a large role in heart disease. Research shows that people who consume a high amount of protein tend to have a......

...Protein Article Research University of Phoenix I use to think of meats or a powdered substance in a big plastic container when I saw the word protein. I now know proteins come in many different forms, and not only from the above mentioned sources. According to “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” (2012), “The protein in the foods we eat is digested into amino acids that are later used to replace these proteins in our bodies” (Nutrition for Everyone). Proteins in our diet can be found as either complete or incomplete proteins. A complete protein contains all of the essential amino acids. These are sometimes called high quality proteins. Animal-based proteins such as meat, fish and milk are considered complete proteins. An incomplete protein is one that lacks one or more of the essential amino acids. Two or more incomplete proteins consumed together form a complementary protein when they are low in different acids. Together two incomplete proteins can offer all of the essential amino acids the body needs. According to Grosvenor (2006), amino acids are “conditionally essential” meaning they are only needed in certain situations to make proteins the body cannot produce on its own. The nitrogen in amino acids distinguishes protein from fat or carbohydrates. Amino acids provide the nitrogen needed to make a protein. Our DNA provides the roadmap for breaking down proteins and creating other proteins (Nutrition; Everyday Choices). A person’s recommended intake......

...Protein is found in every cell, muscle and tissue of our body and is also present in many of the foods that we eat daily. Protein is a major component of all muscles, tissues and organs and is vital for practically every process that occurs within the body such as metabolism, digestion and the transportation of nutrients and oxygen in the blood. The protein in our body is essentially the same as the protein in our food, except that it is structured differently. (Unknown author- (2001-2010) Protein - an introduction to protein in the diet) Based upon chemical composition, proteins are divided into two major classes: simple proteins; which are composed of only amino acids, and conjugated proteins; which are composed of amino acids along with additional organic and inorganic groupings, also known as prosthetic groups. (The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia, 6th ed. Copyright © 2007, Columbia University Press) Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins. Amino acids are chemical compounds containing carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, which combine together into different structures to form the various types of protein that the body needs. The body requires 20 different amino acids, 8 of which are referred to as essential amino acids, which cannot be synthesized by the human body. Non-essential amino acids can be synthesized by body but this does not mean they are less important because they are. The body is capable of producing enough protein to meet the demands......

...Protein Article Research Julie Giuliano SCI/241 December 13, 2012 Angela Pendergast Protein Article Research Proteins are always being produced, broken down and replaced in every part of our body. Proteins are found in body tissue, cells and all organs. You can get your daily protein by eating the following foods: Milk and Dairy products such as cheese Eggs Fish, Meat and Poultry Dry Beans and Peas Seeds and Nuts Grains Some Vegetables Some Fruits There are approximately 20 different types of amino acids that make up different proteins. Our bodies cannot produce essential Amino Acids; those types must be consumed by our diets. A source that contains all of the needed Amino Acids is called Complete Proteins. They can come from fish, meat, poultry, dairy products, milk, eggs and dry beans. For my age group I need to consume 46 grams of protein in my daily diet. By consuming too much protein in your daily diet could mean also consuming too many calories causing you to put on the pounds. Consuming too much protein can also cause health issues such as a higher rate in bone density loss in women which causes osteoporosis, some cancers are believed to be caused by high protein diets and some nutritional deficiency’s are due to high protein diets. For people that have high protein diets and cut all grains from their diets do not get the proper amount of dietary fiber. This can cause deficiency in both vitamins B and E along with Irritable Bowel......

...Protein Article Research Brittnie Parkinson SCI 241 June 22, 2014 Stephen Murray Protein Article Research Protein is considered to be an organic compound that is made up of large molecules composed of long chains of amino acids. Protein is an essential part of all living organism especially as structural components of body tissues like muscle, hair, collage, along with enzymes and antibodies. Since Proteins are made up for amino acids, there are 20 that can be combined together to make all different types of proteins. Since our own bodies cannot make some amino acids, they are considered to be essential amino acids. Within the essential amino acids there are complete protein source and incomplete protein source. A complete protein source provides all of the essential amino acids. A complete protein source is also known as a high quality protein. They are animal-based foods such has meat, poultry, fish, milk, eggs and cheese (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Oct.). An incomplete protein source, also known as complementary proteins are made up of two or more protein sources that when combined provides enough amounts of all the essential amino acids. Proteins are made up of chains of smaller building blocks called amino acids, which are chemically linked to each other. When our bodies digest the proteins in food, it is broken down into amino acids, which in turn are absorbed by the blood capillaries and transported to the liver. Amino acids are then......

This article speaks about the popular trends coming along in 2015. In 2015 more seems to be the word of the year. As a country we are on the cusp of so many wonderful advances in the technology field. You can collaborate with people across the globe, and complete a common goal together while you’re apart. The internet has strung us all together and we are seeing such evidence of that with the cloud. One of our subtopics of our power point presentation for our learn team was, “Collaborative Software”. One of the little software we digested was Microsoft Office 365. Each year more and more users say yes to the cloud, and the Terabytes just keep adding up. For services as such 2015 will require more. A larger investment, more advertising, more competitiveness, and even more storage needed. This trend towards the direction of the cloud is starting to come to a head and is really close to becoming the way of the present. When you look around the cloud has touched you in some sort of way, whether is storing your contacts on their website or backing up your important photos from your trip to Europe, you are involved in some way.

...RESEARCH ARTICLE CRITIQUE Biomedical Science Brief summary The article selected for this paper is “A study into the potential role of Survivin localisation in resistance to drug-induced apoptosis” written by Helen Angell. The paper is about the role of an anti-apoptotic factor from the class of caspases. The subcellular localisation of surviving can play important role in the therapy of breast cancer. Cancer is an abnormal process in which the cellular apoptosis is inhibited. Survivin is a protein known to regulate cell division and apoptosis. Chemotherapy in cancer patients in targeted to induce apoptosis. Surviving has been known to be localised in the cytoplasm and nucleus of the cells. The main therapeutic role of Survivin comes from the fact that the sensitivity of the breast cancer cells to chemotherapy is increased in its presence within the nucleus. Description of the methods and techniques used Various methods have been used by the author. All lab-based methods are used for the determination of localisation and presence of the protein in the cell. • The fourth method used is tissue culture, for the purpose of over expression the protein in the selected cells. • Second method subcellular fractionation was done for the separation of the cellular components. • Immunoblotting was......

...Research Article: Standard Tracheal Secretion Assessment versus an acoustic Secretion Detector Endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation are life-saving procedures in patients with respiratory insufficiency. But this can profoundly impair the defensive mechanisms which keep the lower respiratory tract sterile, increasing the risk of bacterial colonization and ventilator-associated pneumonia. Although endotracheal suctioning is a standard of care in all mechanically ventilated patients, clear guidelines regarding the technique and timing of suctioning are lacking. The applicable American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) guideline suggests that endotracheal suctioning should be performed at some minimum frequency or when clinically indicated. Since endotracheal suctioning can cause hypoxemia, mechanical trauma, bronchospasm, and hemodynamic instability, an accurate assessment of the need for suctioning might decrease the frequency of suctioning complications. TBA Care is a novel device designed to generate a signal when secretions are present in the respiratory tract of an intubated patient, indicating the need for endotracheal suctioning. This is the first prospective randomized trial to compare different indications for endotracheal suctioning. This study compares the efficacy of TBA Care in detecting the presence of secretions in the airways to standard indications, and tested the hypothesis that different suctioning indications could impact the incidence......

...Protein Research Tracey Morgan SCI 241 April 24, 2014 Dr. Patricia Hubel Protein Research Proteins are all so important in the functions of the body. Throughout the world, some countries have an abundance of protein resources to keep their population healthy. Other countries lack the ability to maintain proper resources of protein to keep them healthy, and safe from diseases. Proteins provide the amino acids needed for many body functions like communications. Proteins are also out first line defense to our structure. Skin, bones, and muscles are just a few that are supplemented by protein (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2012). Proteins design the neurotransmitter that is how our bodies transport communication around it, and to the brain. Many resources are available to Americans for protein sources. Making the right choices in selections to acquire the daily recommended intake takes knowledge on the quality of proteins. As we take a look at protein we must consider the two types available to us. There are complete and incomplete proteins. Complete proteins provide us a significant source for various amino acids. Complete proteins are resourced from animals and their product sources. Incomplete proteins are comprised of plant sources. Plant proteins are not as abundant in amino acids and in order to receive a full benefit they should be accompanied by a grain source. Plant proteins are harder to digest and without proper digestion the amino acids cannot be extracted from......

The proteins in a body are constantly braking down and being replaced. With the proteins that are in found in our foods that we eat and they are digested into amino acids in our bodies that are used to replace the proteins that are in our bodies. Proteins are known to be made up of amino acids and there are about 20 different amino acids that join to make different types of proteins. But not all amino acids can be made by a person’s body and this is known as essential amino acids. There are two types of proteins and those proteins are a complete protein source and an incomplete protein source. With a complete protein source, it provides all of the essential acids that a body needs. These proteins are also can be called high quality proteins and they can be found in animal-based foods. With an incomplete protein source, it is low in one or more of the essential amino acids that a body needs. There are risks that are associated with protein deficiency and overconsumption. These risks can increase a person’s risk of getting osteoporosis. There has been research done and it shows that women who are on a high protein diet based on meat have a higher rate of loss on their density compared to the women who don’t. A high protein also puts strain on a person’s kidneys, it also may contribute to cancer, and it also can cause damage to a......

Burton, S., Howlett, E., & Tangari, A. (2009) Study Objectives After reading the journal article, I believe that the purpose of this study was to prove that there is a gap between perceived and actual fast food nutritional value, and it is the appreciation of this gap that influences consumer purchases and not the definite disclosure of nutrition information. Research was based around the questions of how accurately consumers can measure the levels of calorie, fat and sodium content in their out of home food, and whether of availability of nutrition information will effect food evaluation, purchase intentions, and choice throughout the industry. It is my belief that the study also had a supplementary purpose directed toward quick service retail restaurants. Results from the study may be used to influence the product and market offerings of fast food retailers through an acknowledgement of the relationship between nutrition awareness and the quantity of a particular food product demanded. Research Methodology The study consisted of an intricate method of research, conducted through three separate experiments. The hypotheses of each experiment were drawn from the disconfirmation theory (van Raaij 1991). The first......

...A person cannot survive without amino acids in their diet, which is why they are so important. They perform many metabolic functions that are vital to the body, and are the reason amino acids are so important for athletes. The usual intake of amino acids comes from foods like seafood, meat, and legumes. Some people, mainly athletes will use an amino acid supplement to further their intake. The amount intake of amino acids for a regular person is 1.2 grams whereas for an athlete or body builder, it is approximately 2.2 grams. Amino acids help with the building of muscles. Branch chain amino acids (BCAA) can help gain muscle tissue which in turn helps build bigger muscles. Amino acids also help in the building of stamina. Cross country runners for instance take a high amount of amino acids to prevent damage to muscle tissue since it is an extremely strenuous activity. Recovering from fatigue quicker by the intake of amino acids is another reason athletics take them. Amino acids actually slow the production of lactic acid, which causes fatigue. Besides physically fatigue, amino acids also help with mental fatigue. Serotonin in the brain can actually make a person lose willpower. When taking amino acids, it slows the production of serotonin. These are the many reasons why it is important for an athlete to take almost doubled the amount of amino acids of a non-athletic person. Fitness Builds Health. (2007).
