...steps affected, step # 4 and #5. Step #6 is also work done outside, but with the changes made to #4 and #5, step #6 will not start until the month of April. Students may also change the calendars to let the workers off for the holidays of 1999 in addition to those allowed for in2000. The new ending date is May 18, 01. The project will take a total of 30 additional days to complete. By adding 30 days of working time to each of the steps possibly affected by the weather, we only ended up adding 30 days total to the project. This is a good discussion point of how the tasks affected by the increased durations were not both on the critical path – only Step #4 extended the length of the project. However, the student’s must keep in mind resource availability and the increased cost of the project extension. 2. Why is it not possible to meet the scheduling constraints set by the Board? What is your recommendation to handle the scheduling problem? The case outlined two specific constraints that the Board placed on the project. The first is that the project should not start until after the elections in November. The second constraint is that the building be ready for occupancy by July of the following year. The board wanted to target occupancy for the summer months. The constraint of the building opening by July of the year following construction beginning can not be met. No matter when the project begins it takes longer than one year to complete. If the......

...SIGIR 2010 Geneva, Switzerland July 19-23, 2010 DESKTOP SEARCH Workshop of the 33rd Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval Organised by David Elsweiler Gareth J.F. Jones Liadh Kelly Jaime Teevan Copyright ©2010 remains with the author/owner(s). Proceedings of the SIGIR 2010 Workshop on Desktop Search (Understanding, Supporting and Evaluating Personal Data Search). Held in Geneva, Switzerland. July 23, 2010. Preface These proceedings contain details on the invited talks and the papers presented at the SIGIR 2010 Workshop on Desktop Search (Understanding, Supporting, and Evaluating Personal Data Search), Geneva, Switzerland, 23 July, 2010. Despite recent research interest, desktop search is under-explored compared to other search domains such as the web, semi-structured data, or flat text. Even with the availability of several new desktop search tools, users are more successful finding information through browsing their personal collections and subsequently show preference for this approach. Problems with existing desktop search tools include performance issues, an overreliance on good query formulation, and a failure to fit within the user’s work flow or the user’s mental model. As the available storage for desktop collections becomes cheaper and more plentiful and new media types continue to appear, the size and types of items stored in personal collections is growing rapidly. The need for effective......

The crawler (also known as a web robot or a web spider) is a software program that can download web content (web pages, images, documents and other files), and then follow hyper-links within these web contents to download the linked contents. The linked contents can be on the same site or on a different website.

In Search of Talent

...In Search of Talent The number of global searches on Google for ‘jobs’ last month was 185,000,000. The Bureau of Labor Statistics posted on December 6, 2011 that the November unemployment rate in the United States was 8.6%. Needless to say, people are looking for work; they are also looking for efficient and effective methods to assist them in their job search. James A. O’Brien and George M. Marakas, in Management Information Systems maintain “the Internet has a wealth of information and contacts for both employers and job hunters” (292). While internet job searching may be an effective resource for job seekers, cyber recruiting may also be valuable for employers. The 10th Annual Source of Hire Study is conducted annually by Gerry Crispin and Mark Mehler of CareerXroads. In January, 2011 they surveyed 200 large, competitive, well-branded firms and discovered that over 42% of new hires resulted from use of the Internet (2). The CareerXroads study determined that 53% of all hires are promotions or transfers. Internal movement is the number one source of all hires (7). The number two source of external hires is internet-based job boards and corporate websites. Over 24% of all external hires are sourced from job boards and 19% from corporate websites (8). General job boards, like monster.com and careerbuilder.com make up 15% of new hires, and an additional 6% are attributed to niche sites (15). A niche website is a website that targets a specific audience. Websites like......

...other grocers now question the value of allocating resources to creating print ads that are distributed to households. Especially since no solid metric exists to show if these print ads are seen or drive sales. Their customers say that the print ad is important and do not wish for it to go away anytime soon. However, Harmons experimented with turning off the Ad in select areas and saw little to no effect. So they now are searching for a new platform to inform and sell their products. The Solution: We propose a move from print advertising to digital mediums. Using the $100,000 budget from print Ads we could divide these funds between Adwords, Retargeting, Blogs, and online magazines In contrast to the traditional forms of advertising that Harmons employs, Digital mediums provide precise metrics to validate and justify spending. For many aspects of the business we can track an initial .impression to a click, then an action or conversion. Aside from metric expandability and scale are nearly infinite with digital advertising. We can segment hundreds of target demographics and serve Ads with specially crafted messages to increase efficiency. Geo-location allows for the ability to advertise only where we believe potential customers exist. Once these customer are obtained, the cost is very minimal to continue to inform and market to. Values, Mission and Tradition: To remain true to Harmons’ values we chose to develop our paid search strategy on the bases of innovation,......

The Search for Significance

...Book Written by Robert S. McGee This report is based upon the book The Search for Significance, written by Robert S. McGee. The book publisher is Thomas Nelson, Inc., it’s the 2nd. Edition and was copyrighted in 1990. There are 339 pages and includes The Search for Significance Workbook. This is my first reading of this book and it was chosen because my church started a women’s small group in September that was going to be discussing the Workbook. I had wanted to join the group, and wasn’t able to, thus seeing this book on the required listing for this class thought I would get insight from the book and join the group next year. I also liked the cover which has a man with his hands stretched out and looking to the sky, yielding to God for wisdom and direction for his journey. The cover also states there are over two million copies of this book in print. The author Robert McGee is a professional counselor and lecturer. He founded the Rapha, which is a nationally recognized healthcare organization that provides inpatient and outpatient care for adults and adolescents suffering with psychiatric and substance abuse problems from a Christ centered perspective. As of the writing of the book he was the president of Search Resources. This book provides the principles to understand Satan’s lies concerning one’s self worth, false beliefs and God’s truth regarding the false beliefs. I really enjoyed reading this book.

...LEGAL MEMORANDUM 02-264 TO: ALL JUSTICES OF THE PEACE FROM: PATRICIA W. GRIFFIN CHIEF MAGISTRATE RE: NIGHTTIME SEARCH WARRANTS DATE: APRIL 30, 2002 ________________________________________________________________________ The subject of nighttime search warrants was discussed by Chief Magistrate Barron in some detail in Legal Memorandum 80-5, “Search Warrants; A Review” (July 10, 1980) at 7-9; Legal Memorandum 80-5 (4th Supplement) (December 1, 1987). However, since that time, there has been a considerable amount of caselaw concerning such warrants, so that this is an appropriate time to review the current law regarding the issuance of nighttime search warrants. What is a nighttime search warrant? A nighttime search warrant is a warrant that expressly authorizes a search of a residence during the nighttime. To issue such a warrant the judge should not only find the normal probable cause to issue a search warrant, the judge should also be satisfied that there is probable cause to believe that the issuance of the warrant for the nighttime is necessary in order to prevent the escape or removal of the person or thing to be searched for. The requirement for a special nighttime search warrant is contained in 11 Del.C. § 2308 that states: A search warrant shall not authorize the person executing it to search any dwelling house in the nighttime unless the judge, justice of the peace or magistrate is satisfied that it is necessary in order to......
