Practical Connection – Reflection on the Application of Course Skills and Techniques

  Practical Connection   Student Name Course Name Instructor Name Date of Submission   Practical Connection A Reflection on the Application of Course Skills and Techniques in a Working Environment with Databases Work skills are essential, especially in the field or site of application. They come in handy and help one out when they need to handle work-related activities. So is my work area, which has got many activities to do with database management and maintenance. In this reflective essay, I will discuss how skills from this course have been applied in my work environment, especially with database management. I have been able to apply data modeling in the design and scrutiny of a new data model adopted by two organizations during a merger. An instance is T-Mobile in the wake of its merger with Sprint Corporation. This became necessary since, after the merger, the two corporations had to use the same model database, implying the conjunction of the two previously used databases. A new way for data elements’ interaction with the real world entities as necessary for the better customer service of the clients. Therefore, it is an application point for the data modeling skill obtained from this course. I have also been able to apply database debugging and optimization skills in database management. These skills come in very handy when one needs to test any problems with a database system. Databases are made by human beings, and humans are prone to error. As a result, there is a need for error detection in the databases regularly to eliminate as many errors as possible. When I first applied this skill, I found errors but could not manage to correct them. It took the assistance of a colleague to help me recover the problem to have the database back to work. Such errors can arise in the merger corporation such as T-Mobile and Sprinter Corporation since their separate databases were not meant to work as one, but now have to be forced into a unit, or better still, work harmoniously with each other. I, therefore, require to have the debugging skill to enable me to detect any errors caused as a result of the harmonious working or the unification of the two systems. Optimization was essential in the workplace to allow me to work on the system and make it respond more quickly where possible. The last skill I have...

The Illusion Of Greatness – How To Project Security On To Others By Projecting It On Yourself

If you’re reading this, perhaps you are like me when I was in high school, shy, nervous about what others might say about me, avoiding confrontation whenever possible, no social life, pretty much being invisible to others. Well if that is the case keep reading on, I promise you’re going to learn something new and perhaps help you in some way. It wasn’t until later on while I was in college that I realized that I was a natural born leader all along, that I always had what it takes to talk to any girl I wanted and that I have more confidence than anyone I know. Today we are going to focus on one key point in leadership building, the illusion, if you truly believe you are something at your very core then you are just that. So let’s get right down to it, illusions are all around us, all the time, when you read the newspaper or a magazine, when you look at the night sky and see the stars, when you feel pain, all these are illusions. When you read a magazine and you see a picture that you like, you just think you are seeing an image but what you’re really seeing is a collection of colored dots that when put together create the illusion of an image. When you look at the night sky and see the stars you might think that you’re seeing them as they are right now but you’re really watching an illusion of what they were many years ago in the past. When you feel pain your body is telling you that something is not right, but we can learn to tolerate it. So what all that has to do with building your confidence? Well, confidence is just that, an illusion, the bigger the illusion the greater the confidence and the security in yourself, and the more you trust in yourself the more others will do the same. If you tell yourself a lie many times over it becomes real, as real as you want it to be, once you create an illusion of what you want eventually stops’ being an illusion and it becomes real. Basically it all comes down to a mental game; the strongest in this case is not the physically gifted but the one with the most powerful mind. What I want you to do is to...

The History Of Roops Mill

The Spa at Roop’s Mill is the only full service private day spa in Carroll County. It is located in Westminster, Maryland and is situated on the historical property of Roop’s Mill. The charming, old brick building is the perfect host for relaxation and tranquility. From custom painted murals to private treatment rooms, you will feel relaxed from the minute you walk in the door. The Hhistory of the Mill The Roop’s Mill complex is located on the south side of Taneytown Pike about a mile west of Westminster. Meadow Branch Creek runs through the property, providing water for the millrace. The complex focuses on a three-story brick and stone mill, dating from c. 1795 and rebuilt in 1816, which retains machinery from various periods during its operation. The David Roop House, an 1825 stone dwelling, stands near the mill. A log cooper’s shed, an early two-part bank barn, and numerous farm sheds complete the mill and farmstead grouping. An innovative late-19th century iron suspension bridge provides pedestrian access across marshy Meadow Branch Creek, connecting the property near the bank barn to the 1860s brick John D. Roop House to the west. The mill itself is four stories high, constructed in 1816 on the stone foundation of a log mill building dating from the 1790s. The property was deeded in 1742. The brick mill was constructed according to the designs of Oliver Evans, who patented rights to several mill innovations and then charged prospective millers for the right to use his designs. The overall concept was a gravity feed system that allowed for efficient operation for processing flour as it moved downward through a multi-story building. The overshot waterwheel (later converted to a turbine and still intact) located on the ground floor inside the mill not only operated the grain mill but also an up-and-down sawmill (still intact) attached to the northwest corner of the building, and a cider mill (no longer extant). The exterior walls are approximately 18” thick, and the flooring is of wide wooden planks. On the second floor are three grinding stones, which were imported from France through the Port of Baltimore: one for wheat, to produce graham flour (the mill’s specialty), the second to grind oats and rye for cattle feed, and the third to grind yellow cornmeal. The roof was first sheathed in metal in 1898. The mill remained in continuous operation until 1919...

The Hauntings of Alcatraz

Located in San Francisco Bay with a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown San Francisco, you’ll find perhaps the most famous prison in the world. Alcatraz, nicknamed “The Rock”, was originally known as “La Isla de los Alcatraces” or “The Island of the Pelicans” because of its appearance as a barren white rock. The white was caused by pelican droppings, hence the name. It served as a lighthouse, then a military fortification, then a military prison followed by a federal prison until 1963, when it became a national recreation area. Today it is maintained by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and nearly a million visitors per year stop by to check the place out. The island, believed to be an evil place by Native Americans, has seen centuries of death from accidents, murders, and suicides. With this dark history, it’s no wonder Alcatraz is said to be one of the most haunted places in the nation. If ghosts return to haunt the places where they suffered traumatic experiences when they were alive, then Alcatraz must be bursting at the seams with spirits. For years there have been reports of mysterious happenings on Alcatraz Island. These reports come from visitors, former guards, former prisoners, and national park service employees. From the original lighthouse reappearing on occasion to clanging, screaming, and sobbing, there are too many tales to put into this short article. It would definitely take a book to tell them all. Some of the strange occurences are recounted in the following paragraphs. The Lighthouse – There have been several reports that on foggy nights the old lighthouse, built in 1854 and torn down after it was damaged in the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake, will suddenly appear, accompanied by an eerie whistling sound and a flashing green light that makes its way slowly around the island and then vanishes as suddenly as it appears. The Grounds – Many guards and park rangers have reported experiencing unexplainable crashing sounds, cell doors mysteriously closing, unearthly screams, and intense feelings of being watched. A number of guards from 1946 through 1963 experienced something out of the ordinary at one time or another. There have been reports of sounds of sobbing and moaning, horrible smells, phantom cannon shots, gun shots, and screams. Once in a while, groups of phantom prisoners and soldiers appear in front of startled guards, guests, and...
