Current generations of UAVs “can be as small as an insect or as large as a charter flight”. They can be launched from a road or a small vehicle, but are often large enough to accommodate cameras, sensors or other information gathering equipment. Recently, discussions of UAVs have shifted most of the attention toward the ethical, legal and privacy implications that UAVs have, on society in global and domestic level. Overview Definition ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- There are many various terms used to identify these unmanned vehicles to which by its definition are that of a craft without a human pilot within. The most commonly accepted term would be UAV ( unmanned aerial vehicles); the US military much prefer to......

Impact Study

...THE ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF THE PORT OF BALTIMORE Prepared for the: MARYLAND PORT ADMINISTRATION Revised January 28, 2008 Prepared by: MARTIN ASSOCIATES 941 WHEATLAND AVE., SUITE 203 LANCASTER, PA 17603 Maryland Port Administration Inter-Office Memorandum TO: DATE: File March 19, 2008 SUBJECT: MPA’s comments concerning the Martin and Associates Study of Economic Impacts to Port of Baltimore in 2006 The MPA commends the excellent work by Martin and Associates in completing a comprehensive report of the economic impacts of the Port of Baltimore in late 2007, and revised on January 28, 2008. There are two methodology changes (or new features) in the current report - induced and indirect related jobs and a new single measure of the total economic activity. Although other ports are using this enhanced methodology, the MPA chooses not to include them when speaking of the Port’s impacts for the following reasons: • In previous comprehensive studies, only the number of direct related jobs was measured. In the January 2008 study, the related impacts measure the jobs, personal income, and associated state and local taxes that occur at each stage of production of exports or consumption/use of imported cargo. This includes induced and indirect related jobs that are supported by the direct related jobs. The new change in methodology in the current study concerning total related jobs provides a very comprehensive and extremely broad view of the economic impact of the cargo moving via...

Immigration Impact

...Negative Impacts of Immigration Illegal immigrants have never been much appreciated by the Americans for many reasons. They are criminals, and their existence within the US vicinity is a continuous violation of the law. There are certain perceptions about the illegal immigrants of which an anti-illegal immigrant notion has risen. If asked the opinion of a native born American about illegal immigrants, the reaction is almost always predictable. The majority of them believe that illegal immigrants are gorging up the economy by utilizing its benefits while not paying taxes. The number of illegal immigrants in the US is significantly large. Such a number of individuals certainly affect the economy, but contrary to the common beliefs, illegal immigrants not just add to the economic cost; they also provide with some benefits. Both the costs (negative impacts) and the economic benefits (positive impacts) are described separately. The educational level of the illegal immigrants is low. Almost half of them have not completed high school. With this much lack of education, most of the jobs they acquired only require low skilled level. Such a large number of illegal immigrants, hence, compete with the rest of the population for low skilled jobs. As they are illegally working in the US, they are manipulated by employers and agree to do the work at low wages; therefore, in the eyes of the employers, there is a low wage benchmark available. This produces an adverse impact on the......

Environmental Impacts

...Environment 1 Environmental Impacts John Martinez International Business Week 2 Assignment Instructor Mark Lewis Environment 2 Environmental Impacts In my project I have chosen to market the iPhone 4, an Apple product, in the country of Mexico. With this type of technology venture, there would be huge ramifications in regards to the impact on the environment of Mexico. First and foremost, if the iPhone 4 were to be sold in Mexico that would mean that the quality of Mexico’s cellular networks would have to be upgraded. Apple would have to invest and perhaps help with the strategy in upgrading Mexico’s data network so that it would be able to handle the increased amount of data traffic over the air. This would mean more cell phone towers and hub stations that help increase the data bandwidth and enable more users to use a Smartphone device, such as the iPhone 4. Many people do not realize that the cost to build a cell phone tower can be rather expensive plus that facts that you need to have zoning rights to put a tower in an area where some people do not want it. Especially in tourist areas where the landscape is beautiful, it can be an eye sore to have a huge tower built right in the middle of it. Luckily there are many designs today where these towers can be created in an inconspicuous manner and are hidden from the public view. Another challenge to this obstacle would be getting permission to build these towers and having to deal with a......

In this survey team C are focusing on the effects multinational corporations have on the United States in the last 10 years. The effects multinational corporations have on employment in the United States, and the effects it has on our relatives. Team C will discuss the data from each team member’s survey. Next we will summarize the data results from the survey. Finally, we will explain our conclusions on the social effects of a multinational corporation. The data on the survey begins with the confirmation that each participant is of age to answer the survey. Next we have questions that ask the participant the effects of multinational corporations on the United States in the last 10 years. We ask if multinational corporations have an effect on employment in the United States and how the United States employment is affected by this. We ask if relatives have been laid-off or are experiencing job loss because of multinational corporations. Finally, we ask how the participant would rate multinational corporations in the U.S. The data from %^&**^ survey was that multinational corporations created jobs for other countries. When an American company is a multinational company that there are not enough jobs for U.S. citizens and that the company should keep the jobs in...

...wanting to access television content on their own time schedule, with a reduced amount of advertising. Advertising dollars must now be redistributed from traditional content providers to these new market entrants. c. Substitute products and services: Television viewers no longer have to rely on just a few ways to access television shows. Fiber-optic telephone lines to the home can substitute for cable TV lines and satellite TV service. If people can download their favorite television show to their iPhone and view it according to their time schedule and not someone else’s, why shouldn’t they? These changes pose a threat to the steady advertising income stream traditional television companies have enjoyed. 2. Describe the impact of disruptive technology on the companies discussed in this case. Downloading video content from movies and television shows is faster and easier than ever thanks to high-speed Internet access, powerful PCs with high-resolution display screens, iPhones and other mobile handheld computing devices, and Web-enabled televisions just coming into the market. Free and often illegal downloads of some TV shows are abundant. The Internet is also providing new ways for television studios to distribute and sell their content. The television industry is embracing the Internet as another delivery system for its content. Several television broadcast networks set up Hulu.com to stream television shows and movies to viewers. The basic site is free to...

...Running head: UAV PUBLIC PERCEPTION 1 Public Perception of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles This proposal is submitted to the faculty of Purdue University, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Master of Science in Aviation & Aerospace Management degree Alice Tam November 8, 2011 1105 Anthrop Drive Apt. 4 West Lafayette, Indiana, 47906 (812) 599-2706 tama214@gmail.com UAV PUBLIC PERCEPTION Abstract This study explored public risk perception of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for civilian commercial operations, including cargo and passenger transportation. Civilian operators are considering the use of UAVs to increase safety while reducing labor costs, but negative perceptions may delay the advancement of these aircraft. To document perception of UAV or 2 UAS aircraft for commercial operations, a questionnaire was distributed to adults (ages 18+) who use commercial air travel. The survey classified age group, gender, and UAV familiarity as demographic variables. This study assessed risk perception of UAVs and its correlation to the variables through statistical analysis to identify whether there was an association between the demographic variables and risk perception. Upon analysis, it was determined that the data from the sample showed no strong evidence that demographic variables influenced risk perception. Many respondents’ risks perceptions involved technology reliability and higher perceived safety with a human pilot onboard. Keywords:......

...The current issue and full text archive of this journal is available at www.emeraldinsight.com/0268-6902.htm MAJ 21,5 The impact of international financial reporting standards: does size matter? John Goodwin School of Accounting and Law, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia, and 460 Kamran Ahmed School of Business, La Trobe University, Bundoora, Australia Abstract Purpose – This study seeks to examine the impact of Australian equivalents to international financial reporting standards (A-IFRS) on the accounts of small-, medium- and large-sized firms. Design/methodology/approach – For 135 listed Australian entities, the half-yearly accounts ended 30 June 2005 are examined to identify the effects of A-IFRS. Data are gathered on the change in major balance sheet and income statement elements, the major reconciling items and earnings variability. Findings – Findings show that more than half of small firms have no change in net income or equity from A-IFRS, and that there is an increase in the number of adjustments to net income and equity with firm size. The study also finds that A-IFRS has increased net income for small- and medium-sized firms. Equity has increased (decreased) under A-IFRS for small (large) firms. Small firms experience higher earnings variability than medium-sized or large firms under A-IFRS. Research limitations/implications – The sample is limited to 31 December reporting date firms and not all A-IFRS must be complied with when firms restate their......

...law in 2010 and this was the biggest health care reform in decades. The Afford Care Act provides millions of Americans with health coverage who previously were without. This will cause changes in our health care system and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) issued a report in 2010 specifying what changes they think need to take place within the healthcare system to meet the needs of the public. This paper will discuss the impact on nursing resulting from the Institute of Medicine report: “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” Specifically it addresses the impact on education, primary care practice, and nurse leadership roles. The Impact on Education One key message in the IOM report states that nurses need to achieve higher levels of education by having a better education system that easily allows progress from one degree to the next. (IOM, 2010) In fact one of the recommendations is for eighty percent of nurses to have a Bachelors of Science degree by the year 2020. This is an increase of thirty percent. How is this report having an impact? According to the Future of Nursing Coalition for Change progress is being made. Currently the number of nurses enrolled in RN to BSN programs has increased 53%. In Fall 2010 there were 77,259 and in Fall 2013 it went up to 118,176 students (Future on Nursing, 2014). Currently less than one percent of nurses have a doctoral degree and the IOM recommends doubling this number by the year 2020 (IOM, 2010). To......

...Impact Illegal immigration has caused much turmoil in Malaysia. When the illegal immigrants enter into Malaysia they are bringing in harmful diseases that have never been a problem in this area such as tuberculosis and leprosy. http://marygibson8.blogspot.com/ Public Health Risks Because illegal immigrants, unlike those who are legally admitted for permanent residence, undergo no medical screening to assure that they are not bearing contagious diseases, the rapidly swelling population of illegal aliens in our country has also set off a resurgence of contagious diseases that had been totally or nearly eradicated by our public health system. http://www.fairus.org/issue/illegal-immigration-and-public-health The migrations of the illegal immigrants also bring another big problem to our country that is dangerous diseases. As we know illegal immigrants come from rural areas and when they enter our boundaries they do not even go to the public or the private health department for a medical check-up. Diseases such as HIV, AIDS and TB are some of the disease brought by them. The health problem will enlarge because this illegal immigrant brings lot of health problem from their country. For instance the HIV, it refers to the smuggling of women for the purposes of forced prostitution and this will lead to HIV virus in other hand it will increase the total of fatality. Because of these diseases, entire citizens become afraid to be affected by those and some of them have been a......

A bank has many customers, members, employees and directors they have a responsibility to. I have listed several very important things in the following. 1. Data back-up and recovery 2. All mission critical systems 3. Financial and operational assessments 4. Alternate communications between customers and the member 5. Alternate communications between the members and its employees 6. Alternate physical location of employees 7. Critical business constituent, bank, and counter-party 8. Regulatory reporting 9. Communications with regulators 10. How well the firm will assure customers prompt access to their Funds and Securities in the event the member determines it is unable to continue its Business I would have a BCP that adapted to all changes to protect and enable the member to protect all the customers information and confidentially. My BCP plan would address: data backup and recovery: all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternative physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds...
