Diagnostic Assignment

Our nation has faced an immeasurable amount of change over the years. There is an ongoing debate among the American people on whether the nation has made forward or declining process in areas such as healthcare, unemployment, and national security. There is a long and arduous road ahead of us, but by prioritizing these issues, we will be able to look back in four years and collectively agree that we, as a nation, have made forward progress.
One of the biggest topics concerning the American people today is healthcare. The nation is divided into those who can reap the benefits of the Obama care policy and those who see its detriment. In order to grow as a nation, the policy’s effect should remain neutral for all Americans. To achieve this, healthcare cannot be mandated. There are various aspects of Obama care, which many Americans can benefit; however, those who do not seek the policy’s benefits should not be reprimanded for denying it. Under my charge, the Obama care policy will be revised to meet the baseline needs of all Americans.
The unemployment rate in America has made a decline over the years, but the issue remains very relevant to the economic health of the nation. In May 2015, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a national unemployment rate of 5.5 percent. This is a drastic improvement from our 9.9 percent rate in 2009, but there is room for improvement when compared internationally. It will be my priority to bring jobs back to the American people. We have heavily relied on imported goods for too long, and our tarnishing national GDP is a direct reflection of that. It is time to begin constructing more production facilities domestically. Not only will this bring more jobs to the economy but an increase in our national exports will also boost national GDP.
The final but most important issue, which needs to be laboriously…...

...Exercise 2C – Talking about the Writing Process Rubric: A part of a manuscript or book, such as a title or a heading that is distinguished from the rest of the text. Subject-verb agreement: The subject and verb must agree in number. This means both need to be singular or both need to be plural. Freewriting: A prewriting technique in which a person writes continuously for a set period of time without regard to spelling, grammar, or topic. It produces raw, often unusable material, but helps writers overcome blocks of apathy and self-criticism. Heuristics: helping to learn; guiding in discovery or investigation. Exercise 2E – Reflecting on Writing When it comes to starting the writing process, I usually take two to three days at most to search for additional resources or finish any assigned readings. I am naturally a slow reader and I prefer taking my time to highlight the important details I would like to discuss or cover in my paper. I then write a short summary for each reference or resource to conclude what points I want to discuss in my paper. Next, I build and write down the structure of the paper I want to write, and what the title and main focus are (thesis statement for example). I consider the latest step to be brainstorming because not only I decide the structure of my essay, but I also do write down any ideas that come to my mind, especially when trying to connect the readings or resources to the essay. After I am done with collecting resources and......

...Unit 1 Exercise 1 Local Exchange When you send an email from New York to Japan, that email,is sent from your home to the local exchange point over the access network. Once it is in the local exchange it is then sent to aggregating points in different cities and counties over the regional network. Then it is aggregated and transported over the long-haul network so that it reaches the launching point at the country shoreline where it is then sent over the ocean network to Japan. Once there, the email is sent back over the long-haul or regional network to the local exchange and then on to the individual receiving the email. This occurs using mostly fiber optics so the speeds at which all this takes is at the speed of light which is approximately 127,000 miler per second. understand how to interface with the local exchange you must first understand the different networks that comprise it. The first network, being the access network. The access network is the network that connects the individual user or business with the telecommunications system. This is made up of a series of fiber-optic and copper cabling and passive and active equipment that connects you to the local exchange. The central office at the local exchange contains the switching equipment to direct your telephone, data , video, etc. to where it needs to go.

Unit 1 Exercise 1

...NT1310 Unit 1 Exercise 1 6/17/14 The world is connected more than ever through the use of the internet. From paying bills to shopping or enjoying leisure time on the web; taking advantage of the internet has become second nature to society. Focusing in on one specific type of networking entertainment, online gaming has become a major league sport in its own right. Online gaming allows people from all around the world to connect together to team up or fight against one another. Behind the scenes is where the real magic happens. Between the gamers sits countless devices and hardware not to mention miles and miles of land. Using Call of Duty as an example, each gamer has a copy of the map being played on installed onto their local computer. Every time the gamer moves the direction of their character, their data is sent from their machine to their router, and then out past the demarc point. On the other side of the demarc is where the service provider picks up the data and moves the data from local network to the central office (better known as the local exchange). The central office then sends the data over the MAN (metro area network) or WAN (wide area network) to continue the data to game server. If the data hasn’t reached the server yet (for example the gamer lives in Michigan and the server is in California) the data will be passed over the core (also known as long-haul) network which connects MANs and WANs of different geographies together. On the off......

...Unit 1 Exercise 1 An analog signal is any continuous signal which the time varying feature (variable) of the signal is a representation of some other time varying quantity, i.e., analogous to another time varying signal. A digital signal is a physical signal that is a representation of a sequence of discrete values (a quantified discrete-time signal), for example of an arbitrary bit stream, or of a digitized (sampled and analog-to-digital converted) analog signal. Half-duplex data transmission means that data can be transmitted in both directions on a signal carrier, but not at the same time. Full-duplex data transmission means that data can be transmitted in both directions on a signal carrier at the same time. A ring network is a network topology in which each node connects to exactly two other nodes, forming a single continuous pathway for signals through each node - a ring Long-distance telephone company, such as MCI (before its absorption by Verizon), Sprint and the former AT&T Corporation (before its merger with SBC in 2005).

...IP Addressing Scenario Unit 1 Exercise 1 ITT Technical Institute Floyd Washington Jr. April 4, 2015 When setting up a network that will consist of many host computers, one of the first things that an administrator must do is to determine what class of networks that they must administer to a given business. This is the point where every administrator must know how to implement classful and classless IP addressing. A classful network is a network addressing architecture used in the internet from 1981 until the introduction of Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) in 1993. Classful IP addressing divides the addtess space on the internet into five address classes. Each class is coded in the first four bits of the address. Today the classful network concepts remain in play only limited scope of the default configuration parameters. There are 32 bits contained in any IPv4 IP address. A Class A network has eight bits in the network number field and 24 bits in the rest of the field and covers a range of 0-126 in the leading field. There are 128 Class A networks with 16,777,216 hosts capability per network. The range of the Class A networks are 0.0.0.0 to 127.255.255.255. A Class B network has 16 bits in the network number field and has 16 bits in the rest of the fields and covers a range from 128.0.0.0 to 191.255.255.255. There are 16,385 Class B networks and each network has the capability of having 65,536 network hosts. A Class C network has 24bits in the network......

...over to the federal judicial system,” he explained. Vistan said if the state judicial system is simple and not as multi-layered as what we have under the unitary-presidential form of government, then the disposition of cases may be hastened. He said it would be ideal to three levels of courts at the most. “Efficiency, however, would ultimately be affected by how the state courts are administered, the procedures they adopt in handling and deciding cases, and how these courts would actually handle cases brought before them,” he added. Judicial strength PUNO believes the country’s judicial health can withstand the changes that would come with federalism. Puno indicated that, under the federal form of government the Judiciary can fully exercise its independence under the federal form of government as compared to the present system. The Supreme Court, he said, “is one of its kind in the world” for having a vast power to strike down any laws and policies promulgated in grave abuse of discretion. But, Puno noted, despite having such powers, independence of the Judiciary is “insufficiently insulated in our Constitution” considering that appointments in the Judiciary is tainted with politics. “Undeniably, the judiciary has never been given its financial independence by the political branches of the government. Lack of financial resources is one reason the Judiciary cannot liquidate its backlogs of undecided cases,” Puno said. Former University of the East Law Dean and......
