  • Human Memory Organization Short Term
    655 words
    Chris Robinson Frontiers of Science Memory Essay Human Memory Organization Human memory organization, from the outside, seems to be quite a difficult thing to analyze, and even more difficult to explain in black and white. This is because of one main reason, no two humans are the same, and from this it follows that no two brains are the same. However, after saying that, it must be true that everyone's memory works in roughly the same way, otherwise we would not be the race called humans. The way...
  • Biometrics Personal Characteristic
    364 words
    Biometrics Biometrics is the technology of authenticating a person's identity by verifying a personal characteristic. Biometric devices grant users access to programs, systems, or rooms by analyzing some biometric identifier (Schmidt 54-62). A biometric identifier is a physical or behavioral characteristic. Examples include fingerprints, facial features, hand geometry, voice patterns, signatures, and eye patters. A biometric device translates a personal characteristic into a digital code that is...
  • San Gabriel River And Its Drainage Problems
    444 words
    In 1938, the San Gabriel Mountains (Los Angeles, USA) experienced heavy amounts of rain. This then led to mass movement, such as mudslides, and flash flooding, which flushed through downtown LA, damaging buildings, homes and vehicles. After these events, a flood committee was formed, and networks of hard defences were set up along the long profile of the San Gabriel River. The aim: decrease the hydrograph, and reduce the risk of flooding. In the upper course of the San Gabriel River, the San Gab...
  • Log Shipping Server Sql Standby
    1,010 words
    The concept of standby servers is not a new one. It has been around a long time and been used by many DBAs. Traditionally, using a standby server for failover has involved manually making database and log backups on the production server and then restoring them to the standby server on a regular basis. This way, should the production server fail, then users could access the standby server instead, and downtime and data loss would be minimized. What is Log Shipping Essentially, log shipping is t...
  • U Storing Chemical Weapons In Japan
    294 words
    In 1956 and 1966, clearly with Japanese agreement, the United States kept nuclear weapons and in later years nuclear bombs without their fissile cores on Chichi-jima, about 500 miles southeast of the Japanese mainland. They also kept them on Iwo Jima, about 670 miles southeast of Tokyo. This shows that while the United States publicly vowed to keep nuclear weapons in Japan, it secretly stored them not only in Chichi-Jima and Iwo Jima but also in Okinawa. Until 1972, the U. S kept nuclear weapon...

  • Protein Synthesis Amino Acid
    248 words
    Protein Protein Synthesis Protein Synthesis Protein synthesis is the process by which genetic information from the DNA stored in the nucleus is transferred to the ribosomes where it is used to arrange amino acids into proteins. The DNA molecule in the nucleus is unzipped by an enzyme called polymerase. From one of these single strands of a DNA molecule, a mRNA molecule is built. This is accomplished by an enzyme which travels along a portion of DNA between two exons and attaches the opposing bas...
