This is why the government stepped in and attempted to somewhat limit the huge conglomerate's power and scope. However, it is important to note that the company is responsible for at least 1/5 of the country's exports. As a result, they are in a position of power because of the money they supply to the government. Additionally, their vast number of employees are essential to the country's economy.

    This research report will present a brief history of the Internet, focusing on some of the milestones in the development of such a fundamental international computer network system.

    ARPANET was created using a packet switching scheme and the system consisted of a number of individual computers connected by private lines. Packet switching is still the dominant basis of today's data communications, unlike older methods of circuit switching. Previously, circuits were reserved for the duration of only one communicating session; therefore meaning it was only possible to communicate between two parties that were interconnected. However, with packet switching, a data system is able to communicate with numerous machines through the same link, as data is collected into datagrams and transmitted as 'packets' whenever network links are free.

  17. Communications Technology - Assignment 1

    Over distances of about 25 miles microwave repeaters are installed to repeater and boost the signal. A geostationary communication satellite essentially acts as a repeater. The diagram below shows how this works in order to be able to transmit signals around the world. Satellites in the sky are roughly 23300 miles from Earth; therefore the signals have to travel roughly 46600 miles from the sending satellite to the receiving one. These signals are sent via electromagnetic beams that travel at 186,000 miles per second which causes a latency of just 240 milliseconds.

  • To what extent does research support a link between stress and the immune system?

    "In conclusion to the experiments it is seen that stress is almost a definite cause of a suppressed immune system although it may not be the only reason that the immune system is suppressed. As it is not entirely sure whether stress causes the suppression of the immune system or the suppressed immune system leads to stress."

  • To What Extent Was the Poor Law a New Poor Law?

    "The new poor law was a new poor law. Due to social, political, and economical circumstances, it was necessary for the time, as the old system was ineffective, inefficient, and bad for the poor. The new laws meant that there were tighter controls over the parishes and the poor; this made less chance of uprisings and rebellions. I agree similarly to the ideas of Digby; recent investigations on the Old Poor Law have produced convergent conclusions. They emphasise that relief under the Old Poor Law was essentially a response to population growth, under-employment, and low wages, rather than their causes as the Royal Commission's report alleged."

  • This research that I've done will discuss about the effectiveness of the Light Railway Transit (LRT) in Kuala Lumpur.

    "10.5 CONCLUSION In a nutshell, Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway and Malaysia's Mass Transit have some similarity in term of technology and facilities. However, Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway is more advanced than Malaysia's Mass Transit as they had started very early in the late 60's. Effectiveness of Malaysia's Mass Transit can be improved gradually and hopefully they can be as good as Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway. APPENDIX 1. Map showing Hong Kong mass transit routes.
