The idea of online grocery shopping is becoming a well-liked form of technology and customers are realizing the benefits it can provide. Some advantages of grocery shopping online would be the great amount of convenience it would provide for busy parents, flexibility of grocery shopping times, the ability to get specialty products that local grocery stores may not have and it can help the shopper be aware of the subtotal by simply checking the list of foods that have been picked. With advantages, come disadvantages. Security and privacy issues arise when ordering the grocery goods online, because personal information like name, address and credit card numbers are given away. Another downside is that vendors might not be reliable with the orders customers make. Although many individuals and households have access to Internet, not everyone does. Seniors who have troubles with mobility might not be able to use this form of technology

Visual Arts September 2007 ELEMENTS & PRINCIPLES of Art & Design To look is one thing, To see what you look at is another, To understand what you see is a third, To learn from what you understand is still something else, To act on what you learn is all that matters. Taoist saying THE ELEMENTS & PRINCIPLES OF ART & DESIGN Together the Elements and Principles form the basic structure (or composition) of any visual artifact, be it 2-D or 3-D, large or small, decorative or functional, abstract or representational, etc... There is some limitation to the number of both Elements and Principles, but the variety of work which may be produced from their combinations is practically infinite. To help understand the function of each, and the differences between them, it is useful to consider the art work itself as a recipe..... the Elements of Art & Design are like the ingredients of a recipe, and the Principles work as the method of the recipe. So, the idea determines the ingredients and the methods by which they are organized, and this eventually produces the art work....... Some artists and designers make conscious decisions on the use of Elements and Principles in their work, organizing them to create a unity. Others work intuitively, but are still, subconsciously, making decisions on the role of the Elements and Principles within their work.

Portfolio Assignment #2 Privacy and security issues that arise when using Health Information Technology to manage your information. Area of Impact: 3.3 Health October 5, 2010 Word Count: 999 News Item: http://healthinsurance.about.com/od/healthinsurancebasics/a/health_IT_overview.htm Presentation of the Issue Personal Health Records (PHR), Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Prescribing (eRx) are all forms of the Health Information Technology (HIT). HIT has become very popular in the past few years because it can benefit both the client and the doctors by managing health care information in an efficient way. Advantages that come along with using HIT would be reducing the amount of paperwork needed for medical records, reducing errors in prescriptions when reading doctor's handwriting and reducing the employment salary by eliminating workers that maintain medical records. Although many articles have agreed that "The advantages of EHR are extensive and no one can argue that point. 1"There can be consequences and disadvantages when using this type of technology to store personal information. Just like most communication systems, issues regarding security and privacy can arise. Problems like that can occur because many organizations, doctors, specialists and family members have access to your health information. Another issue that may apply would be the
With advances in entertainment technology, online computer games are becoming increasingly popular. They can either be seen as a source of entertainment to those who can control their play-time, a source of wasted time, or even a dangerous medium through which enthralled players begin to find increasingly difficult to quit. This topic is both interesting to me and worthy of study. This is because the issue of extensive use of online games affects almost every age class and culture. It is a widespread topic that has only recently come to notice as a serious subject. Online game addiction has been known to cause serious emotional and psychological harm to diverse players from around the world. That is the reason why the study of such a matter is relevant. In the case of this essay, the topic of online gaming has been narrowed down considerably because of the large scope such a topic entails. Massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), but more specifically, massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) will be studied, as well as the focus of their association with teenagers. This age class was chosen because it is the class of whose behaviour and motives I am most acquainted with, and therefore it is the easiest to discuss from a psychological point of view. The research question for this topic has been chosen to consider the aspects previously listed. The research

Write a detailed account of the history of Reflexology, and explain Zone therapy and its development. Throughout the history of mankind the feet have played an important role in healing practices. Reflexology is believed to date back to ancient times in several different civilisations. One of the most concrete proofs of this was the discovery of this wall painting in the tomb of Ankhmahor at Saqqara (on the left). This was also known as the physicians tomb, and depicts men receiving both hand and foot reflexology. It has been dated at around 2330 BC.1 There is also evidence of some kind of foot and hand therapy being practised in ancient Chinese cultures as far back as 4,000 BC,2 whilst the ancient Greeks were also believed to have practised this. Below is a picture of Tranion massaging Hippodemons foot. This has been dated at around 510 BC.3 In India, 5000 years ago, the feet were believed to represent the unity of the entire universe. The Sanskrit symbols portrayed on the feet of Buddha were seen as expressions of a
Title: "The Effect on Music in the Christian Church" Guiding Questioning: What Effect Does Music Have on Church Worship? Submitted To: Ms. Parker Submitted By: Ramon L. Jackson Date: January 22, 2010 Jim Hill High School Abstract In this paper, Church music is discussed to be considered as an outpouring of the heart; expressing (joy, grief, love, hope, despair, praise, faith, and gratitude). Also I will focus on the trained and untrained musicians; focusing on how they would both play Amazing Grace. Christian people need to sing songs to God. They need Jesus as an intercessor to come to them in the hymns and gospel songs. Church music does prepare the way. Not only does it open the door but often it is the door! Even the preacher himself is easily moved to greater heights of preaching by the Christian music of the service. Church music reaches our spiritual needs by serving as a powerful ally of the word of God. The quality of church music has a reflection of the total worship experience. Whether congregational singing, solo performance, small group ensemble, accompanist, or instrumentalist-vitality of church worship and its experience is reflected by the church music. Yes, church music does have an effect on Music in the Christian Church. It can serve either as a positive or negative factor .It is a matter of vital importance. Church music is pertinent in the
Introduction There is no way to describe the Personal Project better than to say it is a one in a lifetime experience to mark self growth and personal development with a tangible piece of evidence that displays devotion and the MYP student's ardor for exploration of the unknown. For me it was just that. I carefully contemplated the subject for my project. I decided that my high school career was coming to a close faster than I thought and I wanted to see if my path for adulthood was the right one for me. After college, I aspire to be an editor for a magazine and there is not a more perfectly suited opportunity to test this than my Personal Project. I also wanted to integrate my future plans into my everyday life and my interests now; my present hobby and a substantial part of my life is swimming. So I used Approaches to Learning to create a magazine for a teenage swimmer. It would include three main content sections: stroke and technique, health and nutrition, and recent events in swimming. Of course there would be smaller subsections such as top times and releases of new innovative products too. Approaches to Learning was an important Area of Interaction for me. I learned organizational skills and developed other necessary skills for completion. I hoped to learn to efficiently manage my time and through the Personal Project I learned that I often underestimate my

Conclusion Introduction Natural fossil fuels, the primary source of energy relied upon by our society, run the risk of being entirely consumed within the next 50 years. Without energy, the industrial sector falters. For this reason, we have begun to concentrate on alternative sources of energy. However, most other energy sources would not be able to be used as our primary one. Solar panels cannot produce enough energy to for our industrial needs as they are very inefficient. Nuclear power creates toxic waste which damages the environment, and wind turbines are inefficient and unreliable as they only work intermittently. At the
Photography SDS SDS 10 Canic Ng In the modern age of digital cameras, the skill involved in taking a good picture has decreased, how many people depend on using the presetting. Has anyone ever considered what the M setting is for, how about the Tv setting or the Av setting? I think not, so in this essay, it will be teaching you how to use a camera, more specifically using the M setting, the important vocabulary, how to compose a good picture, what rules to follow to get a good picture. One might be thinking, " I don't need to learn this stuff, when will I ever use it?" but think about it. Have anyone ever seen the perfect scene but, no matter how much one tries the camera just doesn't listen to your pleads for a good picture, it just follows what it was programmed to do. You can make that scenario go away, by learning about ones'your camera, how every part contributes to a picture, and how to not depend on the automated function the goal of this essay is to empower the reader with new found knowledge. In this essay it will be focusing more around a SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera. Now one might be wondering what a SLR camera is now. A SLR is a type of camera that uses a movable mirror placed between the lens and the film to project the image seen through the lens. Because it uses a mirror and a pentaprism, an SLR is more bulky than a conventional rangefinder
