HW#3 – Workbook for Notification Problem
An international News Network organization the like of CNN, BBC or Blomberg News has called upon you to design a notification system that is capable of notifying 5000 employees worldwide. The system should be capable of handling not only regular informational notification but emergency events as well.
Employees should be given the option to respond to such notifications and that their whereabouts may be tracked no matter where they are. It is also expected that the system will be robust enough to accommodate the challenges of not getting the messages through under various environmental situations such as nature disasters (earthquake, tropical storm, power disruption, etc.)
As in any news reporting organization, news worthy events can happen in any corner of the world and hence being the first on scene is a competitive advantage that this News organization is hoping that the new notification system will help them maintain that edge. The CEO feels that the make up or organization structure of the news agency will play a major part in the design of the new system. He went on to say that as personnel will be spread across the globe, not all employees are reporters and photographers. The philosophy of the agency is that of being responsive and agile in adapting to the world situation as events unfold on a day to day basis. It is not unusual to see small teams being dispatched to the news scene for both short and long term coverage. Short term may mean a few hours and long term could stretch into weeks and months.
Given the dynamic nature of the job for most employees, and the mobile nature of the workforce, the
CEO sees this system as vital to keeping the employees informed and connected among each other to foster the sense of community. He also envision providing the flexibility of setting individual preferences…...

...I identified the problems and issues that I’ve been having at my job and wrote about them in my last essay. I’ve taken the time out to think of various ways to solve the situations without causing any extra drama at my job and I must admit that was very difficult to do. After speaking with some people about the problems and issues I’ve been having at my job and I’ve gotten a large amount of feedback from them. I took my time and have weighed out all the options that I may have and took everything into consideration. With my first problem I identified as it being favoritism to an employee in the department I work in, my supervisor allows a male coworker do whatever he wants and comes in whenever he wants. He can have a horrible excuse or no excuse at all and he wouldn’t get reprimanded about anything. With me and my other female workers we need to have proof of where we went most of the time and everything like that. After careful review I was able to work out all the details of the problem. I broke everything down step by step which wasn’t easy. The plan is to take my boss and request to speak in the conference room with him and write a written statement where I and the other coworkers have signed where we are expressing our feeling on the situation with our male co-worker. I hope that my boss will take our feelings into consideration because the next step would be to go to the vice president or owner of the company and have something done immediately. I’m trying to take......

...Problem definition: Calculate the usable area in square feet of house.   Assume that the house has a maximum of four rooms, and that each room is rectangular. A. Problem Analysis – Following the directions in the assignment, clearly write up your problem analysis in this section. In order to determine the usable area of the house I must first find out what is the total square feet area of each of the four rooms. I know that to get the area of each room I have to multiply LengthFeet X WidthFeet and that will give me the area of a 1 Room. Then I must do this to all four rooms, therefore, the results of the total area of the four rooms will give me the usable area of the house. My output variables are: UsableAreaFeet (float variable), AreaOfRoomFeet (float variable). Input variables: Length (float variable) and Width (float variable) and AreaOfRoomFeet (float variable).

The Problem

...people who are at risk of becoming delinquent often live in difficult circumstances.2 Children who for various reasons—including parental alcoholism, poverty, breakdown of the family, overcrowding, abusive conditions in the home, the growing HIV/AIDS scourge, or the death of parents during armed conflicts—are orphans or unaccompanied and are without the means of subsistence, housing and other basic necessities are at greatest risk of falling into juvenile delinquency. The number of children in especially difficult circumstances is estimated to have increased from 80 million to 150 million between 1992 and 2000.3 The problem of juvenile delinquency is becoming more complicated and universal, and crime prevention programmes are either unequipped to deal with the present realities or do not exist. Many developing countries have done little or nothing to deal with these problems, and international programmes are obviously insufficient. Developed countries are engaged in activities aimed at juvenile crime prevention, but the overall effect of these programmes is rather weak because the mechanisms in place are often inadequate to address the existing situation. On the whole, current efforts to fight juvenile delinquency are characterized by the lack of systematic action and the absence of task-oriented and effective social work with both offenders and victims, whether real or potential. Analysis is further complicated by a lack of international comparative data. BASIC......

To achieve this end, it is necessary to conduct a background analysis of the HIPAA breach notification rules. In addition, an evaluation of these rules will be highlighted. Moreover, the impact of the Final Omnibus Rule (FOR) of 2013 on breach notification rules will be emphasized. Finally, the way head will be underscored. Background In August 1996, President Bill Clinton signed HIPAA, which is the single most significant federal legislation affecting the U.S. health care industry since the creation of the Medicare and Medicaid programs in 1965. The five primary goals of the HIPAA legislation are: 1. To improve portability and continuity of health insurance coverage for individuals and groups. 2. To combat fraud, waste, and abuse in the health care industry. 3. To promote the use of medical savings accounts. 4. To improve access to long-term health care services and coverage. 5. To establish standards for administrative simplification (HIPAA, 1996).

Sex Offender Registries and Community Notification Laws

...Sex Offender Registries and Community Notification Laws: An Ethical Dilemma by Amy Thorson NW 62-OM OM 4803 - Organizational Ethics John Brown University June 2009 Situation Definition Introduction of the Facts Sex offenders in American society are often seen as repulsive, violent individuals that deserve to be feared and punished to the fullest extent of the law. Their crimes are deemed the worst kind of violation of another human being. In fact, “the vehemence of the hatred for sex offenders is unmatched by attitudes to any other offenders” (Logan, 1999). Many state and federal laws have been passed in an effort to protect the public from these predatory sex offenders. The laws are aimed specifically at registering sex offenders, documenting sex crimes, and disseminating this information to the general public. The Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act of 1994 requires that all states create registries for individuals convicted of sex crimes against children or any other sexually violent offense (Scholle, 2000). In 1996, President Bill Clinton signed Megan’s Law, which allows each state the discretion to establish criteria for registry disclosure, “but compels them to make private and personal information on registered sex offenders available to the public” (Klaas, 2008). Because many states depend on the federal government for funding of law enforcement programs, non-compliance with these......

Is There a Problem

...Incident 1: Is there a problem ad 1.) Dorothy overlooked some of the proper recruiting practices, when reviewing the recruitment and selection process Dorothy did not continue with the procedure, in fact she didn’t go past the second step. Dorothy did not provide a job description or job specifications. 2.) Dorothy mentioned good credit is needed for the job which is a blatant faux pas in the ad. That it something that should have been brought up in a interview. Including good appearance in the ad is also a bias requesting that only individuals with good looks can apply for the job. 3.) Better recruitment sources that could be a recruiting at a college since Dorothy specified that she is looking for a college graduate with a good neat appearance. A professional association could help Dorothy narrow down her candidates for her software engineer position. Incident 2: There’s no future here 1.) The career development for this company did a very bad job at career development. Bob was never given any development for him to assume a Terry’s spot. The career planning was also flawed because the company never gave Bob any career goals. Bob was trained but not developed and was not given any career path. I can understand Bob’s frustration. 2.) The company was not a learning organization. The company should have given Bob more training to be ready to undertake Terry’s role once he left. Management development could have been a strategy they could have......

...the problem with stating the need for genuine indisputable examples of design and purpose because who is the judge or standard of what is indisputable? McCloskey may look at the complexities of DNA to RNA and the order of life as natural progression of evolution. In fact, McCloskey implies that evolution displaces the need for a designer. I, however, disagree. One thing that evolution does is offers an explanation contrary to intelligent design regarding the scientific observations of the natural order of life. While evolution provides the scientific explanation of natural order, it does not explain the creation or ultimate beginning of such natural order. Could not a theist come back in reply to McCloskey and state that a necessary being or God put this scientific process of natural order in place? C. Stephen Evans gives a great analogy when he likens this to a man’s desire to produce shoes. The man creates a machine to achieve the production of shoes, therefore allowing an individual to explain mechanically the structure and visuals of the shoe. However, the machine is not ultimately responsible for the creation of the shoes. Instead, the machine “operates as it doesbecause it is a means for achieving the result; it was designed to do so.”[9] In sum, if evolution were absolutely true, it does not displace the need for a designer. Instead, one can plausibly declare that a designer designed the process of evolution as a means for achieving certain results. The Problem......

Field Tech Notification Review

...Field Tech Notifications Review ISSUE: At the present time technicians in the field receive a wide range of notification formats from the SMC. For the SMC to continue to improve and grow as a professional organization, consistent high quality information must be provided in every notification. The goal is to provide field technicians with as much useful information as possible in a single consistently formatted text message. The only difference a field technician should notice when receiving a notification from the SMC should be the sender. At the present time this is not the case, examples are presented below. TEXT MESSAGE RESTRICTIONS: Text message restrictions vary depending on service provider, service plan, phone and several other variables. The majority of our users have Verizon phones and service and tests indicate that a single message can contain between 150 and 160 characters – this total includes Subject and Body text and distinguishes between Subject and Body putting the Subject text in parentheses. All additional information is deleted and no additional messages are transmitted. REMINDER: SMCP-004 and several emails from Rick instruct that NO SIGNATURE is to be applied to field tech notifications.

Are Community Notification Laws Justifiedare Community Notification Laws Justified

...English 121 I-Search paper Draft 2 November 17, 2009 Are community notification laws justified? Introduction & Research Questions Picture of Megan Kanka. Taken from Cal State, San Marcos’s University Police Department. Are community notification laws justified? When talking about such a controversial topic, we must ask ourselves why community notification laws were created. Richard and Maureen Kanka thought that their daughter Megan was safe. The Kankas had lived for fifteen years in quiet, suburban Hamilton Township, New Jersey. A family of five, they worked hard, paid their taxes, believed in God, charity, and the goodness of others. July 29, 1994 was a tragic day in history. First-grader Megan Kanka, Richard and Maureen’s daughter, was walking home from a friend’s house. As she was walking towards her front door, Jesse Timmendequas, a landscaper who had lived across the street for about a year, invited her over to pet his new puppy. When she followed him inside, he led her to an upstairs bedroom. That would become the last thing that she was free to do. For at that moment, Jesse stole her innocence. After he strangled her unconscious with his belt, he raped her and smothered her to death with a plastic bag. Timmendequas then placed Megan's body in a toolbox, drove to a soccer field a few miles from his house and dumped her body in some bushes. "Megan had a big heart; she was a great, great little girl," says her mother, Maureen Kanka, her voice......

...July 8, 2012 By: Larry L Graham Understanding the Problem: Usually programmers write computer programs to provide solutions for others. First, the programmer must understand the problem he/she is trying to solve. All aspects of the problem description must be clarified and completely understood at this stage. Planning the Logic: Once the programmer understands the problem, it is time to plan the logic of the program. During this time of the process, the programmer uses tools to layout the program’s logical steps from beginning to end. The programmer decides the variables needed in the program. Also, the programmer uses planning tools like, Flowcharts, and Pseudocode to show the steps involved in his/her programming solution. Coding the Program: Coding is converting the design into an actual program, written in some form of programming language. This is the step where you actually have to sit down at the computer and type. Coding is a little bit like writing an essay. In most cases you write your program using something like a word processor. And, like essays, there are certain things that you always need to include in your program, like titles, contents pages etc.. When you've finished translating your design into a program you need to submit it to the computer to see what it makes of it. Using Software to Translate the Program into Machine Language: The lowest-level programming language (except for computers that utilize programmable......
