Information technology in Global economy


Q1: In the chapters, both the authors, (Ahrweiler, P., and Gilbert, N.) suggested that there was a need for quality simulation modeling education.  In addition, the authors identified two types of public servants that need this education.  Name the two types of public servants, and briefly explain why it’s important for these two types of servants to receive this education?


Chapter three deals with the assessment of the quality of the simulation.  The first section of the chapter pointed out the problems of the standard view and the constructivist view in evaluating social simulations. Simulation is good when we get from it what we originally would have liked to get from the target; in this, the evaluation of the simulation is guided by the expectations, anticipations, and experience of the community that uses it. This makes the user community view the most promising mechanism to assess the quality of a policy-modeling exercise. The second section looks at a concrete policy-modeling example to test this idea. 

Chapter 3. Q1: Based on the author’s assessment on the quality of social simulation modeling, why did they think that the user community needed to be enabled to understand the model?  Briefly provide your narrative with examples. 


When looking at complexity in policy-making, chapter 4 has provided an illustration to offer insights to future business leaders to understand that, despite the inherent unpredictability of environments, organisms survive and develop intricate webs of interdependence in terms of their ecologies due to the adaptive capacities of organisms that allow them to self-organize. 

Chapter 4: Q1: According to the author’s assessment, what’s the importance of this scenario to the policy-making process?  Briefly explain.

Discuss in 500 words or more the best practices for incident response in the cloud.

Use at least three sources. Include at least 3 quotes from your sources enclosed in quotation marks and cited in-line by reference to your reference list. Cite your sources. Do not copy. Write in essay format not in bulleted, numbered or other list format. 

Reply to two classmates’ posting in a paragraph of at least five sentences by asking questions, reflecting on your own experience, challenging assumptions, pointing out something new you learned, offering suggestions.   You should make your initial post by Thursday evening so your classmates have an opportunity to respond before midnight when all three posts are due. 

It is important that you use your own words, that you cite your sources, that you comply with the instructions regarding length of your post and that you reply to two classmates in a substantive way (not ‘nice post’ or the like).  Your goal is to help your colleagues write better. Do not use spinbot or other word replacement software. It usually results in nonsense and is not a good way to learn anything. Please do not use attachments unless requested.


At this point, you want to put together the work that has been completed Solution

At this point, you want to put together the work that has been completed to deliver a working program for alpha testing. You will combine the elements you have written to this point and deliver a working solution. You will read the contributor information from a file similar to this table below; it is a comma delimited (CSV) file. 

•First Name in first column
•Last Name in second column
City in third column
•Country in fourth column
•Phone # in fifth column
•Donation amount in sixth column
•Contributor ID in seventh column 

As each record is read, create a sorted Linked list of the contributors using the Insertion sort method. You also need to maintain your table, with one modification. You need to add an object to the Hash Collision Object that is a pointer to the data in the Linked list. In addition, you need to implement Contributor search functionality based on a Contributor Name. Your design should include the following:

High Level Implementation Instructions:
•Sorted Linked list
•Sorted using Insertion sort
•Hash bucket of size 5 with a collision solution using a linked list (no need to order)
•A Search Algorithm based on ID and Contributor Name. ?The Contributor Name Algorithm needs to be implemented using the Sequential Search 

Each contributor will have the following information:
•Name: String; //first name of the contributor
Name2: String://last name of the contributor
•City: String; //the city in which the contributor lives
•Country: String; //the country in which the contributor lives
•Phone: String; //the phone number for the contributor
•Contribution: Double; //the amount of the contribution given by the contributor to the zoo
•ID: Integer; //identifier key for future needs 

Contributor functions/methods:
•Input constructor: //to accept a string for the name and additional information for each contributor (this should call the Add constructor to implement the sorted list)
•Print constructor: //to print out the contributor data
•Print All constructor: //to print the entire list of contributor names
•Add constructor: //to traverse the Linked list and find the proper location for adding the instance
•Search constructor: //the Search algorithm to implement is Sequential Search 

Each hash bucket collision item will have the following information:
•ID: Integer; //identifier key for future needs
•Contributor Address: Pointer; //a pointer to the address of the contributor instance in the sorted linked list 

Hash bucket functions/methods:
•Input constructor: //to accept a string for the name and additional information for each contributor (you will only need the ID portion of the input data)
•Hash Function constructor: //Hint: You only have 5 Hash buckets so the function can be very a simple calculation
•Pop constructor
•Push constructor
•Print constructor: //to show the information of the contributor based on a given ID 

•The design saved in a Key Assignment Draft that does not include any actual code and will be submitted as the deliverable in the next discussion board.
•A fully documented program to load the data creating a sorted linked list.
•A test plan to show how the program runs and can be executed.
•A screenshot showing that the program loaded the data, and after all data is loaded perform the following: ?Print All showing the sorted list.
?Contributor information for George Pipps
?Contributor information for ID 25

Architecture and design

Degelman Company uses a job order cost system and applies overhead to production on the basis of direct labor costs.


Degelman Company uses a job order cost system and applies overhead to production on the basis of direct labor costs. On January 1, 2014, Job No. 50 was the only job in process. The costs incurred prior to January 1 on this job were as follows: direct materials $22,600, direct labor $13,560, and manufacturing overhead $18,080. As of January 1, Job No. 49 had been completed at a cost of $101,700 and was part of finished goods inventory. There was a $16,950 balance in the Raw Materials Inventory account.

During the month of January, Deglman Manufacturing began production on Jobs 51 and 52, and completed Jobs 50 and 51. Jobs 49 and 50 were also sold on account during the month for $137,860 and $178,540, respectively. The following additional events occurred during the month.



Purchased         additional raw materials of $101,700 on account.



Incurred         factory labor costs of $79,100. Of this amount $18,080 related to         employer payroll taxes.



Incurred         manufacturing overhead costs as follows: indirect materials $19,210;         indirect labor $22,600; depreciation expense on equipment $21,470; and         various other manufacturing overhead costs on account $18,080.



Assigned         direct materials and direct labor to jobs as follows.
