(a) As an economic advisor to the government, you analyse possible projects that

maximise the utility and welfare of the country. You have been tasked with analysing replacement technology for Australia’s east coast early tsunami warning system. The current system is outdated and lacks the range of detection of newer systems. The current system is also very expensive to maintain and operate. There are currently two designs on the market that offer a suitable replacement solution. To replace the current system it is anticipated that 1000 units of either of the Hello Tsunami (HT) or Big Wave Warning System (BWWS) be used to cover the same detection area as the existing system.Please see the attachement.

Question

Geologists rely on new technology more and more. Some new technology allows us to model the earth’s surface, like

the model you see in the Google Earth tool, and some describe the area below the earth’s surface!

Which method of investigation allows geophysicists to best visualize or model a buried magma chamber beneath a caldera or crater formed on the earth’s surface?

Select one:

a. InSAR

b. Seismic tomography

c. Structure-from-Motion

d. LiDAR

Question text:

Deformation of the earth’s crust happens above a buried magma chamber.

Volcanos, fissures, craters, and calderas are all types of surface deformation.

As the magma chamber fills up, it expands like a balloon and pushes up on the ground surface. In response, the ground over the magma chamber stretches (again just like the rubber of a balloon!) and develops cracks.

Imagine two people are standing facing one another, and then a wide, broad crack in the earth’s surface grows between them. Imagine that crack is just like the crack shown by Kyle at 15 minutes in the video on Kilauea.

Do the two people on either side of this crack move closer together or further apart?

Hint: draw a picture to help you visualize this situation!

Select one:

a. Neither, so the amount of crustal deformation is negligible

b. Closer together, so the deformation is due to compression of the crust.

c. Further apart, so the deformation is due to extension of the crust.

Question text

Often geologists use global positioning system (GPS) receivers fixed to earth’s surface to measure deformation. Unlike your smartphone, these particular GPS receivers are literally boed to the ground.

The picture below is an example of a permanent GPS receiver:

Because the receiver is fixed to the ground, if one moves—then the ground itself moved! This change could indicate a few things, including tectonic plate motion, landsliding, or the bulging of a magma chamber!

Geologists can also pound 2 stakes into the ground, and then monitor their location during surveys.

It is useful to place 2 stakes or GPS receivers on either side of a volcano or an earthquake fau to monitor any crustal motion that occurs.

Which of the following events resued in stretching of the crust such that the GPS receivers or markers move further apart?

Select one:

a. Filling and swelling of the magma chamber below Pu’u O’o Crater on the island of Hawaii.

b. Any quiet period of inactivity between 2 earthquakes on the San Andreas fau.

c. Emptying and deflation of the magma chamber below Pu’u O’o Crater on the island of Hawaii.

d. A quiet period of inactivity for the Mt. Waialeale caldera on the island of Kauai.

A number of studies indicate periods of deformation on the floor of Yellowstone caldera and outside of the caldera. The total stretching or bulging over the past couple decades amounts to about 70 centimeters of swelling!

What process does this deformation most likely reflect?

Select one:

a. Earth tides in northwestern Wyoming

b. Temperature changes due to solar radiation.

c. Magma filling the chamber buried below the floor of the caldera.

d. Magma leaving the chamber buried below the floor of the caldera.

Database Models and Legacy Systems

Databases evolved from flat file systems. As technology advanced, the limitations of flat files became evident. The database model has evolved to meet the business needs of the time. As the information age evolved, organizations realized there was a need for a different type of management system, one that could store large amounts of data, retrieve the data quickly, secure the data, and share the data. Hierarchical and network database models evolved first, followed by relational and object-relational database models.

However, not all organizations have moved with the times. Often, older database systems still work well, and the cost and time needed to convert to a newer database model prohibit the change. A legacy system is one that uses old, outdated technology. Many businesses and government agencies continue to use legacy database systems consisting of older hierarchical and network technologies.

To prepare for this Discussion, identify a legacy system in a business or government agency (federal, state, or local). Many online sites can be used to identify existing legacy systems. With these thoughts in mind, respond to the following prompts:

  • Should the agency continue using a legacy system? What are the benefits and drawbacks of continuing to use the legacy database?
  • Discuss the needs of the agency and consider the benefits and limitations of each database model.

With these thoughts in mind, make a recommendation to keep the existing system or to upgrade to a new design based on your answers to the questions above.

I have to do a directed summary and analyze 4 – 6 quotes. This is what I have so far and the quotes i was thinking

about analyzing but I’m stuck.

Childhood is the time that shapes us as individuals. It is when we use our experiences to shape our beliefs, how and what we learn based on our observations. Technology is now changing that. Children no longer have to observe, think, or consider. Technology is there to do that for us. We have an overwhelming amount of information readily available to us. Technology is beneficial but can also be harmful. Technology is taking away children’s imagination and the need for problem solving. Children are no longer are developing the attention required for activities such as reading which gives way to critical thinking and imagination. Children do not have to develop their memory to remember things because technology allows information to be instantaneous. In this technological world, children need to have a balance to be able to fully develop their brains to function with or without technology.

Book reading is like scuba diving in which the diver is submerged in a quiet, visually restricted, slow-paced setting with few distractions and, as a resu, is required to focus narrowly and think deeply on the limited information that is available to them.

Thinking encompasses so many aspects of who our children are and what they do, from observing, learning, remembering, questioning, and judging to innovating, arguing, deciding, and acting.

In contrast, the rise of the Internet is strengthening our ability to scan information rapidly and efficiently.

Question

Due Week 7 and worth 120 points

With the merger of your company with a muinational company, you have come

to realize that progressive solutions are necessary to defray some of the associated information technology costs. Company executives believe that using cloud technology and virtualization is becoming the standard for companies that are engaged in Internet-based technologies. Your company is on the verge of global marketing and competition; therefore, your company needs to make smarter decisions and improve global business performance. Cloud technology and virtualization are believed to provide business insights without enormous infrastructure enhancements. The executive board is aware of the profound benefits of cloud technology and virtualization but is apprehensive because they are unfamiliar with the look and feel of the technology. The executive team is interested in your recommendations and eagerly waiting for your forward-thinking viewpoint.

Section 1: Design Document

Write a four to six (4-6) page design document in which you:

  1. Support the need for the use of cloud technology and virtualization within the company.
  2. Assess expected cost savings in hardware infrastructure.
  3. Determine the possible reductions of human capital that can be realized from implementing cloud and virtualization technologies.
  4. Create a diagram through the use of Microsoft Visio or an open source aernative such as Dia to illustrate how cloud and virtualization technology could align with the company’s business processes and assist with attainment of organizational goals. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix.
  5. Provide a compelling recommendation for solution providers and partners that could help the company secure a firm competitive advantage by using cloud and virtualization technologies.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

Use the library and Internet to find information about enterprise architectures and distributed systems.

Most corporate systems are distributed systems, meaning they are made up of a number of different components that are not necessarily located in the same place. If you have a home computer system with a shared printer and Wi-Fi, you have a simple distributed system. If you have muiple computers physically connected together, you have a more complicated distributed system. Some companies and government agencies have hundreds, if not thousands of computers linked together which are massive distributed systems. The technology employee’s use to access these computers is also part of the distributed system.

The establishment of technology standards for an organization is called the Enterprise Technical Architecture. This is a portion of the Enterprise Architecture. An Enterprise Architecture is a definition and standard for all aspects of an organization. Both private industry and government agencies have developed Enterprise Architectures which define the data, processes, organization, technology, product lifecycles and strategies of the organization. For an organization to be effective it must develop standards, particularly in technology so communication among departments is seamless, consistent, and efficient. By standardizing all aspects of the organization through the development of an Enterprise Architecture, organizations find it much easier to provide systems that meet the business needs effectively.

Compare and contrast the meaning of enterprise architecture versus distributed system.

Provide at least 1 example each of enterprise architecture and a distributed system.

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of distributed systems in a business environment.
