I've been mulling over how exactly to share my views on this for months. I've been reading all of the draft talk banter back & forth. Pro & con..........good & bad.......reasons for drafting him or not drafting Glenn Dorsey. In addition to all of the other guys we're considering at No. 2. As a long time Ram fan I know what it's like for us to be drafting early. This ain't my first rodeo, & I've been here b4. However an early draft pick, not to mention the No. 2 overall pick in the draft presents it's own set of problems. I'm sure many of us still remember the Lawrence Phillips DISASTER back in 96. We picked him as the 6th overall pick that yr. and he NEVER lived up to billing. All of the crying Vermeil did over that kid, was just a waste of time & that poor draft pick cost us for yrs. Luckily for us we turned it ALL around in 1999, w/ some key signings & the drafting of Torry in the first round.

But that wasn't the end (unfortunately) of our Rams making HORRIBLE selections in the first round. Heck even our GOOD selections are a mixed blessing IMHO. Torry Holt has been the BEST draft pick EVER in my recent memory. But what about big Orlando Pace? Ohhhhh yeah everyone loves our big LT, & I admit I've enjoyed watching him wear the horns over the yrs. But everyone seems to forget how much trouble he's given our organization as well. He hasn't always been the team player that many ppl think he is. Ohhh no there has been a Dark side to the BIG O, that alot of ppl have forgotten bc of his massive UPSIDE. (No pun intended). Heck even wikipedia doesn't mention ANYTHING going wrong w/ the Big guy prior to 99. Take a look.
Orlando Pace was the first offensive lineman in 29 years to be drafted first overall, following Ron Yary (Minnesota) in 1968. He is widely recognized as one of the best tackles in the NFL, especially in pass protection. At 6' 7"…...

Ram Prices

...1 The cost of one bit of RAM and one bit of hard drive storage over the years will have to based on what size of the bit of ram and on bit of hard drive storage that are you using or trying to buy. But if you were trying to figure out the price range of one bit of ram the prices may range from $20.00 to over $100.00. However One bit of hard drive storage prices may range $100.00 to over $300.00 depends on where buy them from. 2 I think 100 TB hard drive will become commercially available probably 10-15 years from now. It will be an enormous capacity for a hard drive but will be necessary for streaming media. I think network connections will improve fast rate because capacity of the 100 TB hard drives. Also with the hard drive you will be able to you will be combine HDTV PVR's, MP3 players, DVD archives, and pictures into a giant media database. Transferring that much data from one machine to another may prove to be the hardest part of all when dealing with the device. 3 The RAM that you be able to purchase for $100.00 in the next ten years I imagine would be 8 tb or more because drives are becoming even more bigger. Like for instance today you can buy a 250GB for under $60 dollars. So I’m guessing it would be more cheaper from the information I gather that the hard drive will be inexpensive to buy but depending on what size do you get....

Random Access Memory (Ram)

...memory, or RAM, allows us to store even larger amounts of data. Today we’ll see: –  The basic interface to memory. –  How you can implement static RAM chips hierarchically. This is the last piece we need to put together a computer! •  Random Access Memory 1 Introduction to RAM •  Random-access memory, or RAM, provides large quantities of temporary •  storage in a computer system. Remember the basic capabilities of a memory: –  It should be able to store a value. –  You should be able to read the value that was saved. –  You should be able to change the stored value. A RAM is similar, except that it can store many values. –  An address will specify which memory value we’re interested in. –  Each value can be a multiple-bit word (e.g., 32 bits). We’ll refine the memory properties as follows: A RAM should be able to: - Store many words, one per address - Read the word that was saved at a particular address - Change the word that’s saved at a particular address •  •  Random Access Memory 2 Picture of memory •  You can think of computer memory as being one big array of data. –  The address serves as an array index. –  Each address refers to one word of data.

History of Dorsey

...History of Dorsey High School Opening in 1937 Dorsey High School was home to an average of 2,400 students. Dorsey High School served students of Baldwin Hills, Baldwin Village, Jefferson Park, Leimert Park, and portions of Crenshaw. The school was named after Susan Miller Dorsey, the first female superintendent of the Los Angeles public school system. Throughout the years, Dorsey High School has made quite a reputation for itself. Some can say that it is worth bragging about. Others beg to differ. Ranging from the various sports teams, notable alumni, math and science programs, and more, Dorsey High School is a place where teenagers are turned into young adults, sports is idolized, and education is taken seriously. Throughout the negativity, assumptions, and rumors, Dorsey has strived above and beyond the call and has made great history. Dorsey High School has pleasant extracurricular activities history. Dorsey High School has several athletic teams, such as wrestling, football, basketball, track & field, and more. Dorsey’s main rival is Crenshaw High School. Dorsey’s football games are held at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Dorsey High School has the distinction of sending the second most players to the NFL in its entire history behind Long Beach Poly. Dorsey is also a 4-A in its conference. Dorsey has the most wins ever made in Los Angeles history. Dorsey‘s academic decathlon teams also won Los Angeles City Super Quiz championships in 1981, 1982, 1984, and 1985. In 1989,...

History of Ram

...The price of RAM in 1983, which was 30 years ago, was around $600 at the beginning of the year. That was for 256 KB. By the beginning of the next year the price was $517. That was for 384 KB. The prices of RAM kept going up and down. By January of 1991 the price for 1024 KB was $44.50. By January of 2000 the price for 65,536 was $99.89. The price for 8,388,608 KB is $69.99 as of November of 2013. You can see where the price has gone up and down over the years. The price of hard drives in December of 1983 was $1,895.00 for 6 MB. March of the next year for 10 MB, it was $1,699.00. The prices of the different hard drives kept going up and down. By January of 1995 for 1 GB, it was $849.00. By April of 2000 for 20.5 GB was $279.00. The price for 2 TB is $109.99 as of July of 2013. I think the 100 TB hard drive will be commercially available around the year 2034. My reason of this is because people are only allowed to get 2 TB right now in 2014. So therefore, within the next 20 years the developers that make the hard drives will be able to come out with a hard drive that has the storage capacity for a 100 TB. It will take them at least 10 years to get to where they can develop having 50 TB in one hard drive. Then in the next 10 years, they can have a general idea of what they need to do in order to make a hard drive that can 100 TB. The hard drives would be about the same length; they would need to be a little wider and thicker. That a way the hard drive can hold all of......

Glengarry Glen Ross

...of four, and was quoted as saying that Glengarry Glenn Ross was the “Death of a Salesman” of modern times (Ebert). While this comparison might not be made by all viewers of this movie, Glengarry Glenn Ross is a great viewpoint into the sales offices of today, and gives an insight into the pressures that salespeople face today. The movie is loaded with supervisory styles and situations, as well as showing how unforgiving the sales world really can be. Glengarry Glen Ross was written by playwright David Mamet in 1984. The play was so well received that it received a Pulitzer Prize for Drama that same year (Emanuel Levy). Mamet adapted his play into a screenplay for the 1992 movie release. Mamet is also credited with writing the screenplays for such notable movies as “Hoffa”, “The Untouchables”, “About Last Night”, and most recently “Hannibal.”(IMDB) Mamet, however, did not direct “Glengarry Glenn Ross” even though he had previous directing experience on a movie named “House of Games” (Levy). “Glengarry Glen Ross” was instead directed by James Foley, a director responsible for directing such films as “Who’s That Girl” and “The Chamber”(IMDB). There have been several movies made over the past few fifteen years such as “Ocean’s Eleven” and “A Few Good Men” that present such an impressive ensemble of actors that the lead actor and the role actors are hard to define due to the heavyweight names associated with these movies. “Glengarry Glenn Ross” can be associated with......

...e St. Louis Rams made a headline grabbing trade earlier this offseason, sending former starting quarterback Sam Bradford to the Philadelphia Eagles for Nick Foles along with draft pick consideration. While Foles is expected to step in for St. Louis under center, head coach Jeff Fisher revealed that the team still plans to take a new signal caller in the draft, according to "It's our intention to draft [a quarterback]," Fisher said during the annual NFL owners meeting this week. "The Nick trade has no bearing over what we do in the draft." Since the days of Kurt Warner and Marc Bulger, the quarterback position has been the Achilles heel for the Rams. Bradford was supposed to solve those issues, but he struggled with consistency, the deep ball and injuries. Foles doesn't have a completely clean record either, having missed roughly half the 2014 season with a broken collarbone. He also tossed five times as many interceptions last season as he did during his breakout 2013 campaign despite playing in five fewer games. As a result, the Rams may feel that their quarterback of the future is currently not on their roster. However, St. Louis may not be in position to land one of the draft's top signal callers. Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota are expected to come off the board within the first few selections, well before the Rams' pick at No. 10 overall. That could mean they plan to trade up to take their quarterback or the team has its eyes on other prospects, such......

After graduating, Brent began working with a large accounting firm in Portland. He is now on his second audit engagement—a company called Northwest Steel Producers. Working day-to-day with Brent on the audit are two other staff auditors, Scott Olsen and Megan Mills, along with the senior auditor, John Peters. Scott and Megan are both second-year staff accountants and are anticipating a promotion to senior in the next year. John Peters has been with the firm for about five years and has been a senior-level auditor for almost three years. Following this busy season, the partners and managers will sit down and decide which seniors to promote to managers. The rumor around the office is that only four or five of the seven eligible seniors in the office will be promoted in the Portland office. Those not promoted in Portland will most likely be asked to transfer to other offices within the firm that need new managers. Some may even be "counseled out" of the firm. John......

...situation, and leadership style". He gives an example of a football coach who was featured on a television documentary that showed him, in the middle of a practice session, asking one of the players about his wife. The interviewer picked up on this and asked him why he asked the question. As it happened the player's wife had a serious illness and the coach was concerned for the family. He stated that "he cares about more than how his players catch the ball or tackle. He interacts with them as people first, then as football players". Maxwell subsequently met the coach and discovered that he worked hard at building personal relationships with his players. Much later, the coach was enticed out of retirement (after 14 years) to coach the St Louis Rams. Initial reports suggested that the players were not impressed with their new coach and thought he was rather out-of-touch and old fashioned. Two years later they won the Superbowl! "[H]e has found his own way of walking slowly through the halls that keeps him visible, available, and connected. And because of that, his players respect him and work hard for him because they know that he cares about them. A leader can hardly ask for more than that". Some things to think about: 1) How easy do you find it to slow down and connect with people in informal, every-day situations? How could you improve in this area? 2) How much of an interest should one take in personal matters in the workplace? Where does this balance lie......

...How RAM Works 0  Page   1   2   3   4   Computer Hardware Image Gallery MORE ON RAM * RAM Quiz * Does adding RAM make your computer faster? * How to Add RAM to Your Desktop * How to Add RAM to Your Laptop Random access memory (RAM) is the best known form of computer memory. RAM is considered "random access" because you can access any memory cell directly if you know the row and column that intersect at that cell. The opposite of RAM is serial access memory (SAM). SAM stores data as a series of memory cells that can only be accessed sequentially (like a cassette tape). If the data is not in the current location, each memory cell is checked until the needed data is found. SAM works very well for memory buffers, where the data is normally stored in the order in which it will be used (a good example is the texture buffer memory on a video card). RAM data, on the other hand, can be accessed in any order. Similar to a microprocessor, a memory chip is an integrated circuit(IC) made of millions of transistors and capacitors. In the most common form of computer memory, dynamic random access memory (DRAM), a transistor and a capacitor are paired to create amemory cell, which represents a single bit of data. The capacitor holds the bit of information -- a 0 or a 1 (see How Bits and Bytes Work for information on bits). The transistor acts as a switch that lets the control circuitry on the memory chip read the capacitor or change its state. A capacitor is like......

St Nazaire Raid

...troops accomplished. But one of the big turning points that no one seems to remember or mention is the St Nazaire Raid. It became known amongst the British Military as “The Greatest Raid of All.” The acts of bravery among individual British Commandos that carried out the raid were so incredible, 5 Victoria Crosses were awarded, the most at any time in British Military History. In 1942, the Battle of the Atlantic was heavily in Germany’s favor. Their most coveted ship, the Turpitz, was the largest warship commissioned by the Reich, and England knew that if that ship were able to commence a large-scale attack, the war in the Atlantic would be over. So they had to figure out a way to either attack the ship or deviate it from being able to reach the English Channel. In St Nazaire, there was a massive dry dock built in the ealier part of the century for massive French ocean liners, and it was discovered that this dry dock was the only one that could accommodate the size of the Turpitz. The British came up with a plan to destroy the dry dock, so the large German warship couldn’t reach the English from a shorter vantage point. The British took a borrowed 1st World War American destroyer, the Campbeltown, and made an attempt to disguise it to look like a German destroyer. The plan was to sail the Campbeltown up the Loire during the night so chances to be spotted would be less, and ram the Campbeltown into the dry dock. The ship was to be loaded with a bomb that would explode......

Dr Glen

...advantages of advertising online are vast. For the Dr. Glen website I believe the most important advantage is the ability to tell the company story. As an Internet based business the owners need to win customers and if they disclose how they started and list their credentials they have a better chance of doing so. It is also cost effective to run an Internet based store, because digital self-service lowers expenses for the company. Internet ads listed on other websites link to a more detailed website (Dr. Glen’s site) and this makes it easy to track results. Recent studies show that people are increasing their time spent online rather watching TV or reading newspapers and with the increase use of social media networks the potential to share information is endless. Cookies are another way to track customers buying behavior. The tactic is called behavioral targeting and it stores information in a cookie file on the user’s computer system. Disadvantages of Internet advertising is that it only reaches computer users. Those that do not use computers cannot take advantage of special offers or promotional e-mails. Internet based advertising makes it hard to compare costs with other media and the potential of “click fraud” which is used to defraud the advertiser and make money for a dishonest website. 3. Do you feel that other promotional methods such as sales promotion or advertising through magazines or tv would improve sales at Dr. Glen? Defend your answer. Limiting to......

Upgrading Ram

...article I found is titled “Should I upgrade my RAM?” Want to read it? Sure you do. This is a short and sweet article (unlike this rambling virtual paper wasting article review that you may or may not be reading). The first line of the article answers the question in a way that I fully relate to. It says, “If the money is right, then you probably should.” Next the article talks about using the system scanner tool that will tell you specifically what your system can handle and what type of RAM your board supports. This is the coolest part. I have often wondered what type of RAM is in my computer. It’s just something I usually forget very shortly after building the rig. Heck, I built this very computer less than a month ago and I can’t remember what’s in there. This is a very useful tool. The next segment of the article talks about how upgrading your RAM may not produce a significant speed upgrade if you already have a reasonable amount. According to one series of tests, going from 4 to 8 GB of RAM only produced a 3% increase in performance. Of course, there are tons of factors to consider that can influence how much a boost in RAM will benefit your specific machine. What makes this article relevant to class and everyday life is that RAM is obviously a main component in a computer. It is also very easily upgradable. Personally, I like to have a nice chunk of RAM for editing large music files. I......
