Unit 1 Assignment 1
...Unit 1 Assignment 1 1. Describe the role of software for computers: Computer software tells the hardware what to do. Without any software, the hardware would be worthless. Think of the software as a subject in school, and the hardware as you or your brain. Without any learning, you can't do anything. One you have learned some math, and then you are able to solve math problems. This learning is usually accomplished through downloads or CD's that are loaded into the computer. At the very basic level, computer software contains specific instructions for how to accomplish a specific task. These instructions tell the hardware exactly what to do, and how to do it 2. Identify the hardware associate with a computer: the physical components that make up a computer system. There are many different kinds of hardware that can be installed inside, and connected to the outside, of a computer. Here are some common individual computer hardware components that you'll often find inside a modern computer case: Motherboard, Central Processing Unit (CPU), Random Access Memory (RAM), Power Supply Video Card, Hard Drive (HDD), Solid-State Drive (SSD), Optical Drive (e.g. BD/DVD/CD drive) Card Reader (SD/SDHC, CF), etc. Here is some common hardware that you might find connected to the outside of a computer: Monitor, Keyboard, and Mouse 3.

Unit 1 Assignment 1
...Unit 1 Assignment 1 Scientific inquiry is a process of developing an explanation of a question by testing, investigating and collecting data that will either support the idea of what's going on. A problem in the world can be a scientific inquiry because you might have a question about it, so you are basically digging for information about the problem going on and you try to find results by using the internet, books or any source to get your answers. There will be results maybe through testing or charts will appear from studies to support the answers. A non-scientific inquiry is one that does not use a systematic collection of evidence or one that tries to find answers to questions about things other than the natural world/universe, such as beliefs. An example of everyday assumption is gender or stereotyping of what you see that what you assume this more like expectations. If women are mowing the lawn there is going to be a man that will approach you and tell you how to do things properly or what to wear in order to for you to cut the grass right. The answers will come to you without seeking them, just because she is a women it doesn’t mean that she don’t know what’s she doing it is just an assumption because of her gender. The cutting of a lawn is supposed to be a man’s job so they feel they need to say something about it. But all of this is not right....

Composition 2 Unit 2 Assignment 1: Chapter Review and Trace
...Unit 2 Assignment 1: Chapter Review and TRACE 1. The five elements in the rhetorical situation are text, reader, author, constraints, and exigence. 2. A reader can use the rhetorical situation to analyze an argument essay by analyzing what the author is arguing about and who his target readers are. A viewer can use the rhetorical situation to analyze an image by first analyzing what the image’s meaning is, and who the targeted viewer is. A writer can use the rhetorical situation during the planning phase of writing a paper by deciding who is target readers will be and the position it may take on the topic. 3. The audience is important in argument because without the audience you have no argument. The different positions that the audience might initially hold are a friendly, an undecided, a neutral, a resistant, an unfamiliar, or a linked audience. There are multiple outcomes that are associated with arguments directed to each of these audiences, these outcomes include, a bias, they may oppose your argument, or they may agree with your argument. 4. Discourse communities are defined as groups that are involved in and communicating about a particular topic, or issue. The reason a discourse community is helpful to establish common ground for its members is because they share a set of basic values and assumptions. 5. A universal audience is an imagined audience that serves as an ethical and argumentative test for the rhetor. A universal audience is a useful......

Unit 1 Assignment 1
...Unit 1 Assignment 1 Integrated Circuit Technology A motherboard is the backbone of the personal computer, it transfers information and power to all the other components. The motherboard is the largest board inside of the computer that contains the basic input and output system that allows every component to communicate with one another. Attached to the motherboard is a chip comprised with dozens of pins called the central processing unit. Along with the CPU attached to the motherboard is the dual-inline memory modules a part of the random access memory. RAM is the most common type of memory used another type is ROM, read only memory, which stores data onto metal disc within the device. The operating system manages the hardware resources and provides a place to run programs. The last components of the personal computer are the tower and the human interface devices. The tower holds all the components that make up the computer except for the HID which are located outside of the computers tower. The main purpose of the HID’s are to help us interact with the computer, a few examples are the keyboard, mouse, monitor, video camera and speakers.

Unit 1 Assignment 1
...Unit 1 Assignment 1 Cell Phones use voice and data communications. It uses the voice at a lot less these days because people rarely call one another anymore. Data is used for the applications which people use more of these days. So they use a mixture of both but mainly data. Also some phone now use Wi-Fi calling so people can use data networks to call people. Landlines use voice communication. Unlike data voice can work during a black-out because it doesn’t get its power from the same and everything in your house. It’s also a cheaper technology which also makes it cheaper. SMS/Text Messaging uses data. It’s part of the reason I said Cell Phones use both. And it can only be sent over 2G and above because 1G is voice only. Fax Machines use voice. It uses the same jack and RJ-11 like landlines do. It can be used on data but traditional fax use the voice network. The fax is sent it immediately gets digitized the put back in analog form once its sent. Pagers use data. It’s almost like SMS in the is send data (words over the networks). It’s an older technology. VOIP phone use data. It’s similar to Wi-Fi calling. It breaks up in to packets and is sent over the air waves. If you used a VOIP phone you could probably hear it sounding choppy that’s because those packets were dropped for some reason or another. Skype and face time also use data. Without internet connection these applications can’t be used. The main reason these applications exist it to provide an......

You can identify hypertension if your blood pressure is higher than 140 over 90 mmHg. While having hypertension you could also develop some other conditions such as kidney disease. Even though hypertension itself does not cause symptoms, it does lead into long-term complications caused by blood vessels becoming narrower. To be able to reduce Hypertension and get better, we would need to cut down, restrictions such as salt restriction; moderation of alcohol and other diet changes that have affect your condition you have now. There are several drugs that may be used for treatment. Hypertension will affect your heart, so your blood pressure should be normal… when you follow the restrictions. Diabetes Is also called diabetes mellitus, what it does is describes a group of metabolic diseases in where you have high blood glucose, which is high blood sugar. You will experience frequent urination called polyuria, and become more thirsty and hungry. There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. With type 1, your body doesn’t make enough insulin, which is a hormone. Type 2 is where your body doesn’t produce enough of the insulin to function properly.
