The number of travelers who use the Internet for travel-related and other purposes tops 70 million, half of which consult the Internet to get information on destinations or to check prices and schedules (Travel Industry Association of America 1999). The number of travelers booking online has soared by more than 80 percent to 11 million in the last year (PhoCusWright 1999). Travel remains one of the most popular e-commerce categories, with 45 percent of online buyers saying they purchased travel online. This is outpaced only by books at 54 percent. According to a recent survey by BizRate.com (1999), 85% of the respondents intend to use the Internet exclusively or in conjunction with off-line resources to schedule airfare (90% of those planning to purchase travel online), hotel (52%), and car rental (42%) reservations for holiday travel. More than 75 percent of respondents indicated that discounts would motivate them to purchase future travel reservations online. Thirty-nine percent said earning frequent flyer miles or points also would be a strong influence. Cyveillance (1999) estimates that the overall universe of travel sites on the Web is 116,000. Based on analysis, it estimates that only approximately 6,500 travel sites (6%) are e-commerce enabled, i.e., offer the ability to execute transactions online. Internet start-up firms working as intermediaries and travel agencies will continue to fuel the......

...laboratory they are playing games. The integration of technology in education is no longer a new idea. Technology has become such an integral part of society, it is necessary to integrate its use in education in a variety of ways. The use of computer technology has moved beyond computer assisted instruction in the form of tutorials or drill and practice. One of the example of technology that can provide education more easy is internet. Internet is such a huge network of several different interlinked networks relating to the business, government, academic, and even smaller domestic networks, therefore internet is known as the network of all other networks. The Internet is a global network connecting millions of computers it can communicate with each other. There is a lot of information in the internet allows everyone to be informed and knowledge. Internet has emerged as a powerful tool for education. It is a confluence of all kinds of information related to each and every field of education. It also allows teachers and students, sitting in far flung areas, to interact, share and exchange information (http://www.yourmaindomain.com). According to Huge-cave the internet provides an easy access to information, as well as various educational resources, which enables it to reach further boundaries, and made it easier to be accessed, especially with developing new concepts such as open learning, and virtual education, where teachers and......

The present study examined the use of Internet and getting addicted to the social networking sites and on the whole its impact on intermediate level students. The sample comprised of 285 students out of which the addicts were pulled out. The tools used were questionnaire developed by Dr. Kimberly Young, the IAT which is a 20-item questionnaire that measures mild, moderate, and severe levels of Internet Addiction with its sociological impact. An additional questionnaire drafted at International Development Research Centre (IDRC) was used to gauge the behavioural, psychological and physical impact of internet on Intermediate students. And finally a questionnaire was coined in the assistance of Miss Sunanda Jati, lecturer, Dau Dayal Girls P.G. College to check the indulgence of intermediate students on social networking sites. The researcher used dichotomous questions. It was found that the students have positive tendency towards the useful and easy reflections of internet and a greater tendency towards getting addicted.

The Future and Beyond

...The Future Beyond Utopia With the advent of future developments in science and technology, we will assign more and more decision making to machines. At present this is evident in military systems in which electronic sensors maintain the ideal flight characteristics in advanced aircraft. The capacities of computers today exceed five hundred trillion bits of information per second. The complexity of today's civilization is far too complex for human systems to manage without the assistance of electronic computers. Computers of today are relatively primitive compared to those that will evolve in the future. Eventually the management of social systems will call for require electronic sensors interconnected with all phases of the social sequences thus eliminating the need for politics. Today modern industrial plants have built in automatic inventory systems, which order materials such as bearings and other mechanical replacements well in advance. We believe it is now possible to achieve a society where people would be able to live longer, healthier, and more meaningful productive lives. In such a society, the measure of success would be based upon the fulfillment of one's individual pursuits rather than the acquisition of wealth, property, and power. Although many of the concepts presented here may appear as unattainable goals, all of the ideas are based upon known scientific principles. It is not my purpose to write an article that would be acceptable to people this......

...happy because he was not so alone anymore. While all these positive things are happening to him lighter, more uplifting music is being played. When some of the negative obstacles occur you will see that darker, and deeper music is playing. Music is a gift that controls the tempo of what is going on, and the music in this story persuades the audience on how they should feel. I think that this short film is very effective and has very great morals to the story. No matter what go for what you want. Brandon realizes the challenge, went through obstacles, and later resolves the conflict. The acting, the setting and even the music all tie in together to make the story more effective because these elements make a great story. Because feelings go beyond words in this film it is critical for the acting, the setting, and the music to all work together in the right way.

Beyond Bikinis

...Assignment 2: Beyond Bikinis Trina Small Strayer University Marketing 100 Professor Zoppi March 15, 2014 Beyond Bikinis Description A long time ago, when girls and boys were playing and swimming together, plus size women sat and watched. Many plus size women use to hide their bodies in grandmother style swimsuits, or matching short sets. However, now all of that has changed with Beyond Bikinis. Beyond Bikinis is a small family business that makes sexy swimwear for women with curves. Plus size women can now be proud and sexy in their flattering full figured swimsuits, which are specially designed to cover up unflattering body parts but also, compliment their figures. Beyond Bikinis will cater to the body style that is least represented, plus size women (size 12 and up).These swimsuits will be for women with ample breast, hips, thighs and a “pouch”. Beyond Bikinis offer sexy one piece suits and a number of different styles of two piece suits. These plus size swimsuits will enhance the best features of your body while covering the areas you are not as comfortable revealing. Therefore Beyond Bikinis are very selective when choosing the colors and designs of the swimsuits. Beyond Bikinis are made in dark colors like black, blue, and brown that will help make your body appear more slimming. Also, some swimsuits with a crisscrossed design help our women give the illusion of a smaller waist. In addition, we have swimsuits with a deep V-neck and halter tops that will...

...the 1990s is referred to as the second wave of regional initiatives, or “new regionalism”, to distinguish it from the first round of RTA formations that occurred as after-effects of the European Economic Community (EEC), that was established in 1957. The inception of the EEC led to signing of a few RTAs in Africa and Latin America from the 1960s to the 1980s, but the EEC remained the only successful regional integration initiative until the mid-1990s, when another wave of regionalism occurred, as shown in figure 1. In addition, most of the Agreements notified to WTO in 1970s and 1980s were those in the European Community3 enlargement notifications. The “new regionalism” of the 1990s differed from the first wave of regionalism as it went beyond the tariff preference exchanges in goods, as it covered the entire globe rather than just Western Europe, and had a growing interregional dimension as many of the RTAs were no longer between countries of the same region (Busse and Koopmann, 2002). There are, in general, three objectives for forging regional alliances: (a) To promote economic cooperation among countries forging such alliances; (b) To build a sense of security in order to facilitate political harmony within a region; (c) To enable the countries concerned to achieve international competitiveness in the current era of globalization. Although these objectives provide a politico-economic rationale for establishing RTAs, they cannot explain why there has been a sudden spurt in...

...4 The Impact of the Internet of Things on Business and Society · Ubiquitous services for connected consumers · Open source and collaborative business models · The optimisation of things: towards a truly sustainable development W ith the Internet of Everything, it will possible for everybody and everything to be connected at all times, receiving and processing information in real time. The result will be new ways of making decisions, backed by the availability of information. The option of being online and traceable at all times has also led to the emergence of a new generation of consumers, who demand new products and services based on ubiquity and interconnection. These shifts in production and consumption patterns are changing the relations between all the agents in the system. There is a whole host of new opportunities to design and offer new products and services and make more efficient use of existing assets, creating a fertile ground for entrepreneurs. The dynamic of change of the technologies involved in the Internet of Everything is particularly interesting. In many fields, successful new solutions will turn their backs on traditional models of evolution, based on standards set out by large corporations or supranational bodies. Instead, they will consist of “cheap hacks” promoted by entrepreneurs who are capable of identifying efficient problem-solving alternatives and distributing them efficiently thanks to permanent and ubiquitous connectivity, enabling......

Beyond Budgeting

...Beyond Budgeting Beyond budgeting is a leadership philosophy that relates to an alternative approach to budgeting. Beyond budgeting supporters suggest that traditional annual budgeting should be eliminated rather than simply be improved as it is fundamentally flawed (Hope and Fraser, 2003). This approach has drawn worldwide attentions. In this essay, I will explain principles of the beyond budgeting and evaluate its usefulness in practice. In order to conduct beyond budgeting, five principles are proposed. Firstly, the beyond budgeting suggests applying rolling budgets to replace annual budgeting. Rolling budgeting breaks down annual budget by months for the first three months, and by quarters for the remaining nine months. The beyond budgeting employs wider range of non-financial measures as well as some financial measures for control. Non-financial measures include consumer satisfaction, environmental contamination and so on. For example, OilCo, an oil company, set targets linked to stakeholders’ expectations and focused on avoiding accidents. This helped the company to be more customer-orientated rather than being preoccupied with meeting sales targets only, delivering a long-term growth of profits and shareholder value. Moreover, key performance indicators could be utilised in this case. Because management performance will be evaluated based on those indicators, beyond budgeting could be better linkage with strategies than traditional budgeting (Hope & Fraser).......

...Beyond Legalizing Marijuana for Medical Purpose Angel Padro Devry University Professor Natalie Reid English 112 February 23, 2011 In this time of day we still have people that are against legalizing marijuana, but now it brings up discussion about marijuana if United States should legalized marijuana for medical purpose. Now you have to ask yourself something, why is marijuana illegal in the first place? If the government wants to legalize it for medical purposes, why not completely legalize it. So the question is if prohibition is here to protect us, does the prohibition really work? Where in today’s studies there no proof that marijuana is harmful to the American people, so let take a closer look on why marijuana should be legalized in Untied States. Couple years now the discussion of legalizing marijuana is coming up a lot more nowadays. It’s showing that marijuana is actually more useful than people think. So the government is thinking about legalizing marijuana for medical purposes. That raises some red flags, because everybody thinks it so harmful, but that’s not the case. “Actually it’s a proven fact that marijuana does not kill brain cells, it actually stimulates the brain cells and helps them grow.” (The Union-Adam Scorgie 2011) “Also from today polls there are no record death from Marijuana.” (CNBC-2011) Let’s take a look at a poll taking by “The United States government National Institute on Drug Abuse, Bureau of Mortality Statistics: TOBACCO……….400...
