Week 2 Excel Assignment: Description of the Spirituality Survey Responses

Chart or Table #1: Gender

Description of Chart or Table #1: Gender The purpose of this pie chart is to show the difference in the population of survey takers that were male and female. While this information does not give us any real value about the results of the survey, if we were to combine this data with additional information, this could show some of the disparities between males and female on their thoughts about spirituality.
As you can see a majority of the people surveyed were female (64%) and the minority group were males (36%).
Chart or Table #2: Ethnicity

Description of Chart or Table #2: Ethnicity This bar graph illustrates the ethnicity of the people who were willing to take the survey. Of the total 121 people who took the survey, the vast majority of them were of Black or African American decent with the smallest group being categorized as Other or Alaskan/Pacific Islander. The Hispanic group was the 2nd largest, Asian population was 3rd, and Caucasian/White was ranked 4th. One glaring statistic that is glaring in the chart is the African American group of people who were willing to take the survey so large. It would be interesting to know where this survey was offered at and something to note in the future might be to have multiple locations to offer the survey.
Chart or Table #3: Education

Description of Chart or Table #3: Education This chart shows the education level of the 121 people who took the survey. A vast majority of the people who took this survey had only Grade School education (56), nearly 5 times the amount of people who had formal education (Associate and Bachelor Degree total being 10). I have also taken the liberty of adding a trend line to show the decline in formal a in grade school education of people who were willing to be…...

...Misconceptions about Islam – A personal perspective Islam may be the most misunderstood religion in the United States. The impression that majority of non-Muslim Americans have is usually obtained through the media which typically represent Islamic countries or groups in the middle of a Holy War. These wars are usually waged by Islamic Fundamentalist who use terrorism and other violent acts to get their messages across giving Islam a negative reputation. Because of the lack of understanding of this highly visible religion, many conflicts arise between non-Muslim Americans and the people who live in Muslim worlds. Consequently, this causes problems among our different cultures by creating various political and religious battles that result from these misconceptions. In order to decrease the U.S. populace agita regarding the various Muslim cultures, it is important for Americans to have a better understanding of other religions including Islam. I believe three of larger misconceptions are: Islam condones violent acts, Islam is intolerant of other religions and that Muslims worship a different God. One of most misunderstood beliefs is that Islam condones violent acts and supports various types of “Jihad”. Karen Armstrong notes that Islam means “submission” or the total surrender of oneself to God, while the word Jihad in Arabic, means "struggle.” Jihad appears frequently in the Qur'an and, in Armstrong’s text; its common usage implies the "striving in the way of......

...Summary This report summarizes a plan to conduct a wireless site survey, also called a radio frequency (RF) survey, at Orchard Street Art Center. This survey will generate recommendations for maximizing network security, coverage, and capacity. Expert Advice Earlier this year, the board of directors of Orchard Street Art Center asked me to propose a plan to improve wireless coverage throughout the center’s public areas, offices, classrooms, music studios and indoor and outdoor theaters. To make sure I proposed the most effective plan possible, I decided to seek the advice of experts. Fortunately, one of the area’s top experts in wireless networking, Jamie Brookstone, president of Brookstone Network Consulting, offered the services of his staff pro bono. Thanks to his offer, I was able to meet several times with the following consultants: Lyn Luzerne Our conversations focused on ways to improve network connections for the center’s staff and patrons. I also studied information obtained from leading hardware manufacturers and software distributors. This research suggests that our first step is to conduct a site survey of our entire facility. Final Recommendation A high availability, secure wireless network is crucial to our mission at Orchard Street Art Center. Lighting and sound systems in our two theaters increasingly rely on wireless signaling, as do our classroom facilities. Furthermore, patrons and instructors now consider a secure wireless network essential for a......

...least two religious groups: Sadducees and Pharisees. While the Sadducees use to advocated a compromise between the Mosaic Law and the Greek customs and was represented mainly by priests, The Pharisees did not accept that "miscegenation." They had the support of most of the scribes and obtained the almost unanimous support of the Jewish people. As I said before, The Sadducees were usually rich and occupied prestigious positions in Israel, as the priest. They were also a majority in the Sanhedrin (council he thought matters of Jewish law and criminal justice in Judea and in other provinces). They had a great concern to abide by the decisions of Rome (which dominated Israel during that period), giving often more importance to politics than religion. The Sadducees were not well seen by the people, since they were part of the elite and use to support the Romans. The Sadducees ceased to exist after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 A.D. Several other differences between the Pharisees and Sadducees can be highlighted such as: 1 - The Sadducees were more conservative. They considered only the written Word (now the Old Testament) as divine, while the Pharisees put the oral tradition on a par with the same. 2 - The Sadducees denied the resurrection of the dead, besides the existence of angels and demons, while the Pharisees accepted (Acts 23: 8). 3 - Only the Pharisees believed in life and reward / punishment after death. 4 - The Sadducees defended the idea of human......

...means society is less religious. Some sociologists think this a fact but others are not convinced. Maybe it’s just religion is changing and people are finding different ways to be religious. Figures for the number of people attending church show there has been a big decline over the years. In Victorian times almost everyone went to church as it was expected of you. But the 20th century saw a big decline. Nowadays more people go to football matches on a Sunday than attend church. Also shopping is a major attraction and people can also spend their time doing things with the whole family such as going to AltonTowers. The people who disagree with secularisation argue that people are religious in different ways today. Surveys show a lot of people still believe in God. It might be that they are too busy to go to church but they are still religious. They can watch programmes on TV like Songs of Praise so they are still being religious. Many old people are not fit enough to attend church every week but they are still very religious. One sociologist who supports secularisation is Wilson. He says religion has lost its influence and instead of leading people it is now forced to follow them. Martin disagrees with Wilson. He says religion can take many forms and that the majority of people still feel the need for something spiritual so religion will never go away. Candidate B Secular means non-religious. Bryan Wilson has......

...Religion 101 March 24 2016 Christianity and Premarital Sex Premarital sex is considered a moral issue that is distasteful in many societies and considered a sin by a number of religions, including Christianity. The Christian religion has a large influence on the beliefs about premarital sex and how important it is for men, women and anyone of other sexual orientations to refrain from sexual activity until they are properly married. The beliefs in this are still strongly engrained in many Christians today; many of my friends have these beliefs and wear purity rings, although it was much stronger in the past. Over the past two or three decades there has been a steady decline in support for the traditional beliefs about premarital sex, since about the 1960s, it has become more widely accepted in Western countries to have sex before marriage but not as accepted in Eastern countries as they still hold very strongly to. Research in the area of belief of premarital sex in Christians has uncovered that when it comes to conservative Protestants they have much stronger traditional attitudes to the belief of premarital sex and hold onto it much stronger than mainline Protestants and Catholics. Many believe this decline in following the tradition ways of withstanding from premarital sex is due to the privatization and modern interpretations of religion. As societies become more modernized religion follows and in hand religious ways and ideas have begun to shift from the churches......

...Survey Paper Research and Evaluation I Survey Paper This is the problem statement that is being addressed. Why do employers insist on specifying ethnic background to non Hispanic? The survey will ask questions that normally one cannot ask the employer or the interviewer. The problem is that there has been a trend with applications to single out Hispanic/Latino ethnicity. There was a time where the employer would voluntary provide the option to answer the ethnicity background but now it is nearly impossible to find an application that does not state the several ethnic choices to set parameters of the words of “Non-Hispanic” to be checked of such as White (Non-Hispanic) Native American (Non-Hispanic) African American (Non-Hispanic) Asian (Non-Hispanic) Other (Non-Hispanic) Hispanic (Anyone who's ethnic background stems from any of the Latin American, Central American, or South American Countries, Or who's parents share this ethnicity.). This research addresses a concern of why do most employers find it important to whether request the information if one is either of Hispanic background? Employers indicate the information is voluntary and is not to be taken into consideration during a hiring process but through experience it is found otherwise. For example the Internet online application provided by the employer requests that the question of identifying...

...Consumer Perceptions of Bardot During our survey we asked Bardot customers to rate their opinions of the brand in terms of price, fashion (on trend, fashionable) and quality. On average Bardot customers rated the pricing as 3.1/5 , compared to 2.9 /5 in fashionable and 2.8/5 in quality. The overall customer perception of the store is in the upper middle range indicating Bardot’s target market is satisfied with these factors. The data shows the Bardot customers perceive the pricing of their clothing to be reasonable (3.1/5). When comparing the figure with quality, which has a similar rating, (2.8/5), it indicates the products are good ‘value for money’, suggesting it is affordable for the market and customers are willing to spend their money there. This data also shows the clothing as being fashionable, indicating their designs are on trend and are popular among their customers. We asked Bardot customers to think back to their last visit into a store and tell us whether they thought the store presentation was inviting, eg. window display, store layout and presentation of stock. Our findings show that majority of customers, 74% found the store presentation inviting, suggesting the visual merchandising is attracting their market and satisfying the needs of the customer. A nearly equal percentage of customers, 77%, said the store presentation was important to them, implying that the way Bardot chooses to merchandise and promote their product is essential and may assist in......
