Funds are separate fiscal and accounting entities and include both cash and non cash resources. There are two types of fund accounting entities expendable and nonexpendable funds. Like that on business accounting is expenses – the cost of assets consumed during the period. In contrast, the cost of measurement focus of expendable fund accounting is expenditures – the amount of financial resources expended during the period for.
The GASB is responsible for establishing accounting and financial reporting standards for activities and transactions of state and local governments including government non-profit organizations. Meanwhile FASB is for all other organizations including nongovernment nonprofit organizations. Then we have AICPA that evaluates the pronouncements of the various G&NP accounting standards bodies in depth in the course of preparing a series audit guidelines.
Because significant revenues from sales of services are not available to finance governmental type activities, the government must raise financial resources from other sources such as Taxation and intergovernmental revenues. These are the two primary examples of these revenues.
Because the day to day accounting and interim reporting by G&NP organizations is often based on cash receipts, disbursements, and balances or assuring compliance with the organization’s budget. But their annual financial statements must meet uniform national standards if they are to comply with GAAP.

Mystery Ot Tutankhamen Death-Hum 111

...head: MYSTERY OF TUTANKHAMEN DEATH Mystery of Tutankhamen Death Patience Williams Professor: Dr. Brook Beshah HUM 111 January 30, 2012 Abstract This paper unravels the mystery surrounding the death of Tutankhamen, an Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (1333 BC- 1323 BC in conventional chronology), a period in the history of Egypt regarded as the “New Kingdom” Hankey and Julie (2007). In addition, the paper discusses a brief history of Tutankhamen (the boy king of Egypt) who reigned for 10 years, the cause of his rather untimely death, which up to this day people continues to discuss with a certain degree of uncertainty. The paper accomplishes these tasks by providing a brief summary of some theories that might explain the mystery that surrounds Tutankhamen’s death. Finally, the paper identifies a particular theory out of many regarding Tutankhamen’s death that best explains the mystery of his death. Brief History Before discussing the mystery surrounding the death of Tutankhamen, it is important to know who he was and how and why he became the youngest pharaoh (king) in the history of Egypt and probably the entire world. According to Clayton (2006), Tutankhamen was the son Akhenaten, a former Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died probably around 1336 BC or 1334 BC. Tutankhamen who reigned for 10 years, became Pharaoh at the age of nine, but died at the age of 18. Historically, as a prince he was known as Tutankhamen, a name......

Scientific Evidence Shows That King Tutankhamen Did Not Die of Natural Causes - He Was Murdered.

...SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT KING TUTANKHAMEN DID NOT DIE OF NATURAL CAUSES - HE WAS MURDERED. ~KING TUT~ Tutankhamen, king of Ancient Egypt (often referred to as King Tut), died at the early age of around eighteen. To this day, his death remains a mystery that has brought many historians, Egyptologist and scientist to many theories as to how King Tut died. Two theories in particular are the theory that he succumbed to a broken leg that became infected, and the theory that he was murdered. The latter theory holds the most weight. In 1968, while performing an x-ray of Tutankhamen's mummy, scientist found bone fragments in his skull leading to the conclusion that he was murdered by blunt force trauma. (Lovgren, 2006.) However, later research lead some to say that the most famous pharaoh likely died of a leg injury which was complicated by bone disease, malaria and/or infection. (Tutankhamen CT scan Press Release, 2010.) The theory that the "boy king" had been murdered because of a hole in his head was ruled out and determined by many Egyptologist to have been the result of the mummification process. To be sure, homicide police in Ogden, Utah have been requested by a British film producer to apply modern forensics to the ancient case. According to their studies, they believe that they have proof of murder. Prominent Egyptologist, however, says that those conclusions are nonsense and based on hearsay. They argue that if in fact King Tut was murdered, then one would have......

King Tut's Death

...The 12th king of dynasty Tutankhamen was born in 1341 B.C.E, and gained power in 1352 B.C.E when he was only nine years old. He was the most famous king in the history of Egypt and was considered as half god half man. After his mysterious death at nineteen years of age in 1361 B.C.E, he disappeared from the history until the discovery of his tomb, in 1922. His body was discovered several after the discovery of his tomb, with a lot of controversies about the actual cause of his death. The death of King Tut is still a mystery; there are different theories about it, some people think that he died in an accident, some think that it was a an assassination and some people think that his death was natural and he died because of some kind of illness. In 2002, Mike King and Greg Cooper, two of the America’s top detectives, who strongly believed that death of the king was an assassination, tried to prove the theory of king Tut’s assassination with the modern forensic techniques. They believed that Tutankham was god king, and there should have been extra care for him if he was sick, and the fact that he was too young too die makes it hard to believe that he could have died naturally. When the researchers examine the x-ray they found out that there was an uneven bump in the bottom of the skull, which they assumed was the sign of blood clot because of the head injury. The x-rays also revealed a broken bone fragment in the top left corner of the skull. The detectives then profiled that......

The Mystery of King Tut's Death

...The Mystery of King Tut's Death The Mystery of King Tut's Death If you ask the average American to name an egyptian king ninety nine percent of the time they will spout out the name king Tutankhamun or king Tut for short with out really even thinking about it. Why is that so many automatically associate an egyptian casket with the one that was unearthed in Tut's tomb? Maybe it has something to do with the kings appointment at such a young age and the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death or murder at the tender age of eighteen. Maybe it has something to do with the highly publicized discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Tutankhamun's is the only royal tomb in Egypt to have escaped the discovery of looters. In addition to the royal sarcophagus discovered by archeologist Howard Carter, there were also vast quantities of beautiful furniture in the tomb, including a golden throne that dates from the early kings rule (Sayre, H. M., 2011). This makes us curious about what really happened to king Tut there are many accounts but they have not been proven so for now they are just theories that add to the mystery of king Tut's demise. The most controversial theory of what happened to tutankhamun is that he was murdered by someone in his inner circle whom he trusted maybe even a family member. In his international bestseller The Murder of Tutankhamun paleontologist Bob Brier accuses Aye, Tutankhamun's administrator of assassinating him...

Environmental Processes That May Cause Injury, Illness, or Death in Toddlers

...Environmental processes that may cause injury, illness, or death in Toddlers Lilian Iberosi Grand Canyon University, Arizona 11/13/2013 A toddler is a child between the ages of one and three. During this time, although the physical growth and motor development will slow, the toddler years are a time of great cognitive, emotional and social development. To this extent, toddlers are especially susceptible to preventable injuries because their physical abilities exceed their capacities to understand the consequences of their actions. Hence a two-year old child whose ball rolls into the road will think only about retrieving the ball, not about the danger of being hit by a motor vehicle. They are extraordinary mimics, but their understanding of cause and effect is not as developed as their motor skills. (Hagan 184). Therefore, safety issues in a toddler relate primarily to the toddler’s environment and interactions with parents and or caregivers In the light of the foregoing, some of the most frequent causes of injuries, illness, or death in toddlers include: suffocation, motor vehicle crashes and car seat safety-related injuries, falls, fires and burns, poisoning, choking, and drowning. Suffocation and motor car- related injuries are the leading causes of death, however toddlers’ who are exposed to maternal substance use, secondhand smoke, malnutrition, lack of caregiver supervision, or caregiver neglect also are at increased risk of morbidity. (Hagan 183) Parents usually......

...111 Assignment 1 Gail Geregory 2014 2014 * Tutankhamen died young, at around 18 years of age. However, his cause of death has not yet been confirmed. Did he die of an injury, of illness, or was he murdered? King Tutankhamen was a young when he became king he was about eight years old. Since the new king was so young the commander of the army Horemheb ruled for him while he was growing up. Someone else important helped him also a man named Ay. When King Tut became king he was already married to his queen Ankhenpaaten which was his half-sister. Back then they liked to keep all the power in the family so that it was hard for anyone to gain power and royalty. The main job for the young king was to keep the country stable and to make sure that everyone was safe by keeping the army ready to defend his country. King Tut also had to keep the gods happy that is why he had help from Horemheb and Ay. (Hawass, 2005) What I think happened to King Tutankhamen? Everyone is still trying to figure that out. According to the National Geographic Center King Tut could have died of a possible disease, but there is no evidence of that death. Some say that he was murdered because of some old x rays that shows a place in the back of this skull that might be damage of a blow. 2005 a CT scanner was done on the mummy of King Tut what they found out is that Tutankhamun did not die from a blow to the head, and there was no foul play on the mummy. They could not tell......

Tutankhamen Theory

...tutankhamen theory By Lavonda Adkins Professor: Leonard Lowe HUM 111 February 2, 2014 THE TOMB King Tut’s tomb was discovered in November 1922, it is said to have been undisturbed for over 3,000 years. There was a rumor that engraved on the exterior of King Tut’s Tomb was the warning, “Death Shall Come on Swift Wings To Him Who Disturbs the Peace of the King”. This did not deter anyone from unearthing this wondrous sight. THE THEORY Tutankhamen became a king at the tender age of eight or nine years old, he was the ruler of Egypt. As ruler his reign only lasted roughly around ten years before his untimely demise. He passed away in his late teens. No cause of death was listed for him as there was no real reason that may have caused the young rulers death. The theories I have found for the cause of Tutankhamen’s death are as follows. THEORY ONE For many years scientists have used every available source of technology in an effort to determine the cause of King Tut’s death. There have been many theories named and many proved wrong. It is not easy to fathom that such an existence and death could not be determined by now. One theory listed is that maybe King Tut died of blunt force trauma, caused by a skull crushing blow to the back of the head. Many believe that his murder happened during his tenth year of his reign while there was a war raging in Egypt. The Egyptians were at war with the Hittites. Could it have been an enemy that murdered this king? ......

Did he die of an injury, of illness, or was he murdered? The legendary 18th dynasty pharaoh Tutankhamen died tragically young , during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. His original name, Tutankhaten, means "Living Image of Aten", while Tutankhamun means "Living Image of Amun". Speculating as to the cause of his early demise has been a popular pursuit, There are no surviving records of Tutankhamen's final days. What caused Tutankhamen's death has been the subject of considerable debate. Major studies have been conducted in an effort to establish the cause of death. There is some speculation that Tutankhamen was assassinated, possibly by a close family member or associate due to greed and power, If he was murdered it would almost be impossible to solve due to the many years of tarnish. but also there is another hypothesis that his death was accidental.

How Did King Tut Die?

... | The Mysterious Death of King Tutankhamen  Three thousand years ago after his death the question still remains: How did King Tutankhamen die? Over the years many facts have been shared by well-known scientist, Egyptologist and historians attempting to find out if King Tut was murdered or if his death was accidental. Egyptologist Bob Brier is a strong advocate of the most popular theory, “The Theory of Ay”. He believes King Tuts servants Ay killed him out of greed in order to take over his throne. Another fairly popular theory is the theory that King Tut died from infection due to a broken leg after falling from his chariot. Although both theories have their valid points only one can be true. The most plausible theory is definitely “The Theory of Ay”. According to http://www.kingtutone.com/tutankhamun/murder/ Ay had the motive to kill Tut considering he would be next in line to the throne as long as he married Tuts wife Ankhesenamun. In 1997 Mr. Brier revealed that the ring he found in Cairo proved Ay and Ankhesenamun did indeed get married after the death of King Tut and along with that he also became the new pharaoh of the land. Many people believe the marriage was forced despite Ankhesenamun’s attempt to wed the son of the King of Hittites who was assassinated on his way to wed Ankhesenamun. In addition to “The Theory of Ay” It was also discovered by Bob Brier that there had been a hematoma at the lower base of King Tuts......

Death of King Tutankhamen

...There are several different theories as to how King Tutankhamun died. Some will argue he was murdered, while others believe he died from an illness. Due to the several theories that surround his death it is virtually impossible to pinpoint the exact cause of his death that occurred over 3,000 years ago. However the one fact that scientists and historians can agree about, is that the death of King Tutankhamun is one of the most fascinating mysteries to ever come out of Egypt and still intrigues scientists and historians to this day. Did King Tut die of an illness? According to researchers at Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, a combination of bone disease and a malaria infection may have led to the young king’s untimely death. King Tut suffered from avascular bone necrosis, a condition where poor blood supply to the bone leads to a weakening or destruction of an area of bone. He also, along with three mummy’s identified as close relatives, suffered from malaria at some time in his life. Researches write that the bone condition alone would not cause death but in addition to a malaria infection, death is highly probable. "These results suggest avascular bone necrosis in conjunction with the malarial infection as the most likely cause of death of Tutankhamun”, (Covington, June 2005). Was it murder? One popular story that stands out is based on the theory that King Tut was murdered with a blow to the back of the head by a member of the royal court in order to......

Death of King Tut

...is more well-known or studied than a pharaoh named Tutankhamen. There is a lot of mystery surrounding the king, but among the most popular is the way the young pharaoh died. Some theories state it was an injury; others say the pharaoh died due to illness, and yet, still others indicate he was murdered. This paper will reveal the most likely and acceptable theory on the cause of King Tuts death. A team of British scientist, working with vehicle accident investigators at the Cranfield Forensic Institute in Swindon, England stated that the king died on his knees while being run over by a chariot. The team used x-ray and other data received from the results of a virtual autopsy. The results showed injuries in a manner of a particular pattern on one side of Tuts body. By using the computer to simulate related injuries in a car accident, the team put together a crash scenario involving a chariot that resulted in his death (Knapp, 2013). Although this is one possible theory from evidence gained during research, the pharaoh could have lived through the chariot accident. According to Egypt’s chief archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, the real cause of the young king’s death was an inherited bone disorder called Kohler disease that made the King week, followed by an infectious disease called Malaria. This conclusion came from x-rays and DNA analysis performed. Hawass found genes from the malaria parasite in Tut’s body. This claim has already been challenged by two German scientists that say,......

King Tuts Death

...Tutankhamen died young, at around 18 years of age. However, his cause of death has not been confirmed. Did he die of an injury, of illness or was he murdered? The cause of King Tut’s death has been unclear and is the root of much speculation. The question of what happened to him has continued to puzzle scientists, archaeologists, and egyptologists for many years. There are many different theories as to how he died and all of them continue to be controversial topics. Many people have argued that he was likely murdered due to greed and power, while others believe he fell from his chariot or died from an illness. In recent years, there have been several findings by different archaeologists and scientists to see if they could determine the cause of the young king’s death. On March 8, 2005, an Egyptian archaeologist by the name of Zahi Hawass revealed the results of a CT scan which was performed on the pharaoh’s mummy. The scan uncovered no evidence of a blow to the back of the head and no evidence suggesting foul play. However, there was a crack in the skull but it appeared to have been the result of drilling by embalmers. A fracture to the young king’s left thighbone was interpreted as evidence that the pharaoh badly broke his leg shortly before he died and his leg severely became infected. Members of an Egyptian led research team recognized it as a possibility that the fracture was caused by the embalmers. A total of 1700 images were produced of the mummy during the CT scan...

The Death of King Tut

...Mystery of the Death of King Tutankhamun Many believe that King Tutankhamun was murdered; others believe he died of natural causes deriving from an insect bite. According to a two-year long study conducted by Zahi Hawass of the Secretary-General of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), scientists now believe that he likely died of a leg injury, further complicated by an attack of malaria (HASAN, 2010). Having different theories and no concrete evidence, the death of King Tut has always been and continues to remain a mystery. The manner, in which King Akhenaten (father of King Tutankhamun) died, brought concern to suspect that Tutankhamun would become a political target for assassination. King Akhenaten yielded a religious revolution creating a world filled with chaos and during this pandemonium, Tutankhamun was born. The religious uproar that he caused led to several attempted assassinations on his life, and after 17 years of reigning, he died. The cause of his death was unknown but was suspected to be murder. At the young age of 9, Tutankhamun was made king but it took him several years to mature and rise to power. King Tutankhamen then experienced an acute early death at age 19 leaving people to believe that his death may have been a politically motivated assassination. Since the discovery of his tomb in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter, many theorized that the cause of Tutankhamun’s death was murder because of the hole in his skull. This was later......
