Modelling assignment. I have been commissioned by a market research company to analyse the popularity of computer games with the teenage market. The market research company requires a list of games, the name of the console, price of the game and the rating of each game (from1-10). To complete this assignment I will be required to complete some research into the games and their popularity with the teenage audience. I will then use the information that I have compiled to perform some calculations. Transferring data I am going to extract data from the database, which I made previously as part of my database assignment. I will extract the data by creating a query. This is a screen dump of the query in Access. This is the data that I extracted from the table in Access and saved as a spreadsheet. The reason why I moved the data was so that I would be able to use Excel and the data collected in order to do some calculations and create charts. Setting up the spreadsheet I formatted the spreadsheet by changing the font used in the spreadsheet to Palatino Linotype, changing the headings so that they are now in bold. I also formatted all of the columns so that the information in them would be able to fit into them and I formatted the column 'Price' so that all of the data that is entered into it will be currency, and will have a £ sign in front of it and the data will
the impacts of ICT
.3 Life in the Information Age ICT has changed the way we live our lives. It affects everyone from professionals to working class people. ICT has created a different lifestyle for students, professionals, social life personal/everyday life. ICT can become a way of earning money to just being a source of entertainment. I will discuss the impacts of ICT through: * Entertainment and Leisure * Communication * Education * Banking and Shopping * Employment Opportunities Entertainment and Leisure We will look at way in which the way we entertain ourselves has changed. Music ICT takes part enormously when it comes to entertainment and leisure. Music used to be played in large black discs which would spin 45 laps per minuite. CDs finally came in the 90's. CD's in the early 90's could not be copied. CD-RW did not exist then so everybody would buy original copies of CD's, which was good for music industries, because to get hold of music you would have to buy the CD. The CD-RW was invented in the late 90's and everyone copied CD's and began to sell them for cheaper prices than original CDs. Economy for music industries went on a downfall. By then the Internet was something worth a lot and not many people had it. You could then share music with people all over the world through the Internet and then put it on CD. So we can see how ICT was having an impact on music. MP3 Players
Unit 2D Evaluation Evaluation for the system created Looking back at my tables, I think that the layout was most appropriate for the purpose
Evaluation for the system created Looking back at my tables, I think that the layout was most appropriate for the purpose because I feel that the final result is fantastic. I managed to put in all the information that I think was required. Although, I think that if I had had more time to design the tables, I think my tables would look more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. As looking at my tables, I have realised that all of them look plain. When I started putting the data into the tables, I found out that some of the boxes had a limited number of characters that could be input, and for some categories, I needed to put in more information. If I could have designed the tables again, I probably would have added a bigger allowance of characters so that I could easily write full length descriptors. I did not find anything I had done using the tables easy, because I found them straight forward, and easy to manage. Working with the joining tables was easy because all we had to do was go through a set up wizard that guided us through what we needed to do. Without the step by step wizard, I think this task would have been rather difficult. For my coursework, I have done standard letters which is the promotional letter and also the renewal. I am happy with my renewal and promotional letters because using mail merge, I think that my letters both look legitimate because the

The impact of ICT on an adult in employment Khalik Rahman is an independent executive chauffeur. This means that he drives people around in and out of the country and, he sometimes goes abroad for business trips with his client. His services are exclusively for corporative clients such as investment banks, corporate law firms, TV media and such. He receives his work via email, text messages and XDA II. He is a hardworking man and he works full time. In order to receive payments from the client, Mr Rahman needs to send invoices every month. The technologies Khalik Rahman uses for work purposes are his XDA II, email and Microsoft Word. The technologies Khalik Rahman uses personally are digital TV and the internet. The technology he uses socially is a mobile phone and the internet. Work Use XDA II An XDA II is a smart phone which means that it is an electronic handheld device that is a combination of a mobile phone, personal digital assistant (PDA) or other information appliance. It contains games, internet access, address book, phone, note pad and much more. Khalik Rahman uses his XDA to contact his company and for his company to contact him. The XDA II has Khalik Rahman's own company software stored in it and his pick up's are sent to it. Compared to computers and laptops a XDA II is really small and is like a computer and mobile phone put together. Khalik Rahman is a
Database Project Project Proposal I propose to create a database for my user, the Manager of a plane rental company to help his plane renting system; this rental system will solve all his problems that he currently has with a paper based system. The new system will be quicker, more accurate and use less storage space then the old system. The many problems my user has with the current system includes that it is time consuming, as you cannot search by any table. For example if you are looking for everyone who rented something out in April you will have to look for it as everything may be stored under first name of the customer. There are other problems such as the records can easily be lost or misplaced as it is on a piece of paper. Also all the pieces of paper added up needs a lot of storage space and eventually my user will have to get rid of many of the records. I will finish this unit between 19 April and 21 July 2006. To do this work I will need a workstation and a printer so my user can see my progress. The software I require is a database for obvious reasons and a word processor to type up my report. I will analyse the situation then implement my solution and test that it works. After this I can evaluate my process and go through the mistakes I have made and how I have overcome them. Analysis * My user is Mr. Abedin the Managing Director of the company. * The

A2 ICT, Task 3 - St. Anthony’s Hospital
Charles Sonnex A2 ICT, Task 3 St. Anthony's Hospital Introduction The application that I have decided to report on is the system at St. Anthony's Private Hospital. . St. Anthony's is situated on the A24, London Road, North Cheam, Surrey and is well served by road and public transport services. Close to the A3 and the M25, it is easily accessible and convenient for both Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The parking facilities at St. Anthony's are good with ample spaces. The hospital can arrange for an ambulance service should it be needed. St. Anthony's is a private catholic hospital, which provides private health care for over 200 patients. The company has a huge plot of land, where many buildings stand, including offices, wards, an incinerator, conference centre, restaurant and others such as theatres, x ray rooms and treatment centres. Within the main building, a pharmacy, gift shop and a morgue are also present. There are a number of departments within the organisation. Many perform few tasks using ICT therefore I will look only at the two main departments, which have the greatest use of the computer system at St. Anthony's. These being the Hotel Services Department and the Finance Department. Both have very different roles within the organisation. The role and function of the hotel services department are as follows: * To provide, safe, hygienic, high quality

Statistics Coursework - Football Introduction I have chosen to base my project on football statistics because they are both readily available and interesting enough for deep analysis. As a starting point I decided to look at the generally accepted theory of 'Home Advantage'. Home advantage, or the tendency for the home team to do better than they would away, could have several causes. It could be partly psychological - the home team would almost always have the majority of the crowd behind them, cheering them on. It could also be to do with the condition of the pitch - Premiership teams sometimes find it hard to play on muddy, waterlogged pitches of some lower-division teams. Another factor is the attitudes of referees and officials. Because they are intimidated by the home crowd they often give decisions in favour of the home team, meaning teams may also have a worse disciplinary record when playing away. Hypotheses: . Teams have a worse disciplinary record away than at home 2. Better attended teams have a greater home advantage 3. More successful teams have a better disciplinary record Collecting Data I found that football statistics were easy to find on the internet. I obtained mine from two main sites: http://soccer-stats.football365.com http://www.bettingzone.co.uk There is a very small risk that some of the data I collected could be incorrect. However, I
Report 3B IMPACT OF ICT ON AN ADULT IN EMPLOYMENT, INCLUDING THE EFFECT ON WORKING STYLE
IMPACT OF ICT ON AN ADULT IN EMPLOYMENT, INCLUDING THE EFFECT ON WORKING STYLE I am going to investigate Stan Chipcate, who works as a wedding planner/clothes designer in Greenford, West London for a huge company called Carrera. He works from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m. and often has to carry on some of the paperwork home as the work load generally gets the better of him. The job can interfere with his social and personal life, if for example, he has to continue working till late in the night and his wife is deprived of having a chance to interact with him. Stan generally heeds the use of technologies such as a PDA, his mobile phone and laptop and the internet (i.e. email) for work-related needs. The Technologies that he Uses 1) Laptop: Stan Chipcate depends on his laptop a lot for everyday work. He needs to use it virtually every day for its portable capabilities. A laptop computer or simply laptop (also notebook computer or notebook) is a small mobile personal computer, usually weighing from 1 to 3 kilograms. It allows for a greater practical use, as the mobility is very useful. There also some significant features such as wireless capabilities, (further enhancing the practicality of the laptop) a slim LCD screen and the ability to run on batteries. Here are some advantages: * Laptops are fully functional computers, able to run the same software as a desktop computer. In fact
South Leeds Health Centre would now like me to develop a patient information system for the Health Centres various waiting rooms.
SLHC Patient Information System _______________________________________________________________________ : Introduction .1: Requirements Having successfully produced a personnel database and staff ID cards, the partners of the South Leeds Health Centre would now like me to develop a patient information system for the Health Centres various waiting rooms. They would like a system that patients can use to help to improve their knowledge of some of: o Healthy Eating. o Giving up Smoking. o The benefits of Regular Exercise. o A simple Diagnostic System. o Contraception. o Healthy Babies. The system has to be easy to use preferably by mouse and should not need any ICT expertise once installed and up and running. The steps I will be taking to do this are as follows: o Theory - Expert systems. - Expert systems for health diagnosis. - Why build the system? - Benefits of system for patients. - Benefits of system for Health Centre. o Research - Input Devices. - Display Devices. - Health Information. - Diet Information. - Repeat Prescription Application. - Design Specification. o Design - Two structures. - Two layouts. - Outline storyboard. o Implementation - Suitability of design. - Development of system. - Hardware report. - Software report. o Testing - Reasons for testing. - Methods for testing. - Test plan. - Diet Information. - Evidence of
