Abstract: Current e-shopping systems use the Internet as its primary medium for transactions. e-shopping has grown in popularity over the years, mainly because people find it convenient and easy to buy various items comfortably from their office or home. This paper has proposed a personalized e-shopping system, which makes use of agent technology to enhance the automation and efficiency of shopping process in Internet commerce. The agent technology is used to enhance the customer‟s needs which include availability, speedy response time, and efficiency. Agent for e-Shopping creates connectivity on an anytime-anywhereany-device-basis to provide the specific goods required by the consumers based on transaction cost optimization and scalability. The client agent connects with the controller agent which controls all the agent information. The controller agent sends the item information to the client agent and the client chooses items and puts in to the shopping cart. Finally the conclusion shows that the system performs efficiently and can help customers to save enormous time for Internet shopping.

...Security Domains and Strategies, Project 1 Nearly all businesses today are connected to the Internet. This detail makes any company, large or small, a target for hackers, network attacks and malware. The largest security threat to any company today is internal, and specialists in the field suggest you protect your company by layering components in a full security strategy that includes technology, policies, procedures, and best practices. The fact is that small businesses today face the same basic data protection challenges as large businesses. The dangers and potential costs of unprotected data can be catastrophic. By layering security using complementary technologies, your small to mid-sized business IT services can address all of the threats it faces. Needless to say, IT support is unquestionably needed for business data protection. It is highly recommended that you pick a company that truly understands the needs of a small business. The great thing today is that it is not necessary for IT technicians to be on site in order to service your IT network. Whether the security threats are malicious or due to inadvertent employee error, the results are the same: loss of revenue and productivity, and potential liability for the company. What Are the Questions? As organizations begin to build their incident response capability, they are looking to determine the best strategy for putting such a structure in place. They not only want to know what has worked well for others,......

The Agent

...Advantages of Fraternities 1.) Being a part of a fraternity or sorority offers a large selection of exciting volunteer opportunities and numerous social outlets. 2.) But not everyone will have a positive experience as a club member. Those who are fans of these associations argue that the Greek system give students a wide range of leadership opportunities and paves the way to lasting friendships. 3.) In most cases this is true, however it's unfortunate that a number of fraternities and sororities are little more than an excuse for getting drunk and doing potentially dangerous pranks.  4.) A good strategy for anyone considering joining a fraternity is to weigh the pros and cons of life Disadvantages of Fraternities 1.) First of all it is a great time commitment. You will have to devote all your time to your fraternity or sorority. Once you are a member, you should take part in all social events, meeting and competitions. 2.) Money. When you join the organization you should pay initiation fee and room. However, it is not all. You will continue spending your money on social events, attire and other unexpected expenses. 3.) A negative images. Actually, sororities and fraternities are organization that are aimed at positive results. Some of them are rather conservative and remain non-smoking or alcohol free. Dedication I just want to inform all people that want to join in Fraternities and Sororities, it’s not easy as you know to other......

Intelligent Agents

...INTELLIGENT AGENTS In which we discuss what an intelligent agent does, how it is related to its environment, how it is evaluated, and how we might go about building one. 2.1 INTRODUCTION An agent is anything that can be viewed as perceiving its environment through sensors and acting upon that environment through effectors. A human agent has eyes, ears, and other organs for sensors, and hands, legs, mouth, and other body parts for effectors. A robotic agent substitutes cameras and infrared range finders for the sensors and various motors for the effectors. A software agent has encoded bit strings as its percepts and actions. A generic agent is diagrammed in Figure 2.1. Our aim in this book is to design agents that do a good job of acting on their environment. First, we will be a little more precise about what we mean by a good job. Then we will talk about different designs for successful agents—filling in the question mark in Figure 2.1. We discuss some of the general principles used in the design of agents throughout the book, chief among which is the principle that agents should know things. Finally, we show how to couple an agent to an environment and describe several kinds of environments. 2.2 HOW AGENTS SHOULD ACT RATIONAL AGENT A rational agent is one that does the right thing. Obviously, this is better than doing the wrong thing, but what does it mean? As a first approximation, we will say that the right action is the one that will cause the agent to be most......

Change Agents

...organizational structure to technical or managerial innovations Organizational targets for planned change include changes in strategy, objectives, technology, culture, structure, processes, management etc. These change activities in the organization are managed, facilitate and implement by change agents. There will be a discussion on why organizations enlist the help of change agents and the skills and competencies that they need to possess. There are various advantages and disadvantages for an organization in using internal and external change agents in the change processes. Lastly, few recommendations are people who bring or introduce planned change. The change agent can be manager or non-manager, employees of an organization or a consultant hired from outside (Pathak, 2010). In this paper, an analysis will be carried out on whether change leaders should be internal or external to the organization will be made based on this discussion. Change agents are enlisted by organizations several reasons. The change leaders have the professional knowledge and skills of the organisation development The roles of the change leaders, also known as change agents, must be able to solve problems in processes, systems, teams, individuals, organizational cultures, structures and designs within the organisation. The leaders will have very clear vision about the change provide intensive professional help to the organisation by giving the fair point of views on the organisation problems......

Multi Unit Pellet System

...Multi Unit Pellet System (MUPS) Technology The concept of multiple unit dosage form was initially introduced in the early 1950. These forms can be defined as oral dosage form consisting of a multiplicity of small discreat unit, each exhibiting some desired characteristics. Compressed multiple unit pellet tablets/multiple unit particulate or pellet system commonly called MUPS. These are composed of polymer coated subunits namely pellets; which are embedded in an inert excipients matrix designed to overcome the difficulties in administering capsules and improved physico-chemical stability compared to suspensions. The functional coating like drug coating, barrier coating, enteric polymer coating is usually applied in a fluid bed coating processor provides each subunit with the characteristic desired drug release properties. The size, shape and surface morphology of the pellets to be coated are the prerequisites for coating of pellets. Design of MUPS involves formulating pellets by different techniques and further compression of these pellets into rapidly disintegrating tablets; disintegrate rapidly in the oral cavity for the delivery of coated pellets into the gastrointestinal tract or the site of release of the drug. In spite of the challenges like content uniformity of the compressed tablets, ability of the film to withstand compression force. MUPS occupy a prominent role in formulating drugs due to their greater patient compliance, process, formulation and therapeutic......

Multi-Grade

...As teachers of multi-grade school, you are normally faced with more challenges and constraint than a teacher in a mono-grade school or class. Multi-grade teaching has remained an unrecognized phenomenon globally including Jamaica. Base on this concern the writer sets out to introduce you to the nature of the multi-grade school and the challenges that principal, teachers and students experiences in the implementing curriculum instruction. Multi-grades are found in very rural or remote communities, where population are scattered. Within these areas there are not many teachers or students, so one classroom has different age group and grade. These students are in one class and taught by one teacher; for example one class comprises of grades 1, 2, 3, &4, 5, 6 or 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6. The multi-grade class structure is known by various names in different countries; these include 'composite' or 'combination' classes, 'double' classes, 'split' classes, 'mixed-age' classes and 'vertically-grouped' classes (Veenman, 1995). Multi-grade school can be defined as a class in which students of two or more adjacent grade levels are taught in one classroom by the one teacher for most if not all of the day, such multi-grade classes are embedded within the traditional graded system: students retain their grade level labels and are promoted through the school with their grade level cohort (Mason & Burns, 1996; Veenman, 1995). Expectations of Teachers in Multi-grade......

...Global Multi-Products Chile “They want to sell integrated solutions but are not integrated themselves” The company’s vision was to be the most innovative enterprise and the preferred supplier and the preferred supplier by developing technologies and products that created a new basis of competition and by helping customers grow their businesses. STEEPLE factors have a massive impact on how things turnout for a company in a particular country. Multi-Products Inc. encountered many problems in Chile as well. Socially, Chilean culture tends to be more reserved. People here are self-centered and don’t look beyond their immediate circle of friends and family. Difference in educational backgrounds and differences regarding recent political history have polarized society. Technology plays a pivotal role as well in bringing in clients and aligning work in an integrated system. When one looks at how Chile has moved from a command economy to a market economy you can actually look at the massive change that has taken place. Numerous companies have been privatized after decades of being in the public sector. U.S retailors that have moved in from North America have also caused a change in nature of Chilean retailors. Environmentally, small central area dominates in terms of population, north Chile has mineral wealth and the southern region is rich in forests and grazing lands. Politically, Chile moved to having a very stable government compared to the anarchy in the pre-90’s era.......

...superior to the indigenous people already settled in America which led to acts of violence, distrust and hatred among the now call American Indians. As well as the civil right violations, lynching and hate crimes that were committed against African Americans. As long as there are race groups and signs of racism the subordinate groups not only face stereotypes they will face prejudices and discrimination. Based on the various theories of prejudice discussed in Chapter 2 of Racial and ethnic groups the exploitation theory of prejudice seems to be the most influential and as had the greatest impact on U.S. society. The idea behind the exploitation theory presented by Karl Marx is that it views racial prejudice as an expression of the class system inherent in capitalism (Schaefer, 2011). For example, both the enslavement of African Americans and the removal westward of Native Americans were economically motivated (Schaefer, 2011). In today’s society economic motivation is still just as important and possibly one of the main driving forces for society’s decline in prejudice and discrimination claims. Since America is only becoming more diverse the need to acknowledge and enforce equal and fair treatment for minority ethnic groups will continue to become more of a focus in the future not just because it benefits the economy but hopefully because society will see it’s the right thing to do....
