In March 2004, U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona called attention to a health problem in the United States that, until recently, has been overlooked: childhood obesity. Carmona said that the “astounding” 15% child obesity rate constitutes an “epidemic.” Since the early 1980s, that rate has “doubled in children and tripled in adolescents.” Now more than nine million children are classified as obese.1 While the traditional response to a medical epidemic is to hunt for a vaccine or a cure-all pill, childhood obesity has proven more elusive. The lack of success of recent initiatives suggests that medication might not be the answer for the escalating problem. In recent years, policymakers and medical experts have expressed alarm about the growing problem of childhood obesity in the United States. While most agree that the issue deserves attention, consensus dissolves around how to respond to the problem. This literature review examines one approach to treating childhood obesity: medication. The paper compares the effectiveness for adolescents of the only two drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for longterm treatment of obesity, sibutramine and orlistat. This examination of pharmacological treatments for obesity points out the limitations of medication and suggests the need for a comprehensive solution that combines medical, social, behavioral, and political approaches to this complex problem.

Sample Research Project in the Context of a Freshman Writing Course Prepared by Steve Tollefson, College Writing Programs, UC Berkeley, 2005 Includes Final Research Paper, Annotated Bibliography and Reflection on the Process Internalizing Dead Kings and Ambiguous Art Marian Feldman has been a member of the UC Berkeley faculty for the last seven years and is currently Assistant Professor in the Near Eastern Studies Department. She has published two articles, two reviews, and is in the editing process of her first book. The publications reveal Feldman’s process of internalizing her academic interests by the stylistic differences between the articles. In her professorial career thus far, Feldman has donned various roles as art historian, archaeologist, professor and writer. This paper provides insight as to how Feldman’s personality and different aspects show through in her writing and by changes in her writing over the course of her publishing career thus far. As I enter my first college class, my attention goes to Professor Feldman, a tall, slender woman in a loose pearl blouse with black dress pants. The combination of her graceful stance and scholarly presence distinguishes her already from the chaos of the lecture room. The calm demeanor spreads through the room as she gradually turns the lights down low, signaling the beginning of lecture, and gives life to the art historian’s companion, the slide projector. Her slow and steady speech is punctuated by inflections at nearly every other word and reflects her scholarly presence. She picks her words carefully and you can sense the moment’s thought before each. Her precisely chosen words make each one valuable as I frantically try to catch them all. Feldman incorporates her elevated vocabulary in daily speech and lecture, requiring that I form my own vocabulary list: mélange, koine, cache, lingua franca, etc.
Today, IT organizations assemble their data center environments from individual components. Their administrators spend significant amounts of time manually accomplishing basic integration tasks rather than focusing on more strategic, proactive initiatives. The industry is in a transition away from the rigid, inflexible platforms that result and moving toward more flexible, integrated, and virtualized environments. The Cisco Unified Computing System™ is a next-generation data center platform that unites compute, network, storage access, and virtualization into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. The system integrates a low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet unified network fabric with enterprise-class, x86-architecture servers. The system is an integrated, scalable, multichassis platform in which all resources participate in a unified management domain (Figure 1). Figure 1: he Cisco Unified Computing System Integrates Network, Compute, Storage Access, and T Virtualization into a Single Cohesive System The Cisco Unified Computing System is designed to deliver: Innovations Supporting Business Benefits Each of the Cisco Unified Computing System business benefits is supported by a rich set of technical innovations that contribute to this first implementation of the Cisco® unified computing vision. Managed as a single system whether it has one server or hundreds of servers with thousands of virtual machines, the Cisco Unified Computing System decouples scale from complexity. The Cisco Unified Computing System accelerates the delivery of new services simply, reliably, and securely through end-to-end provisioning and migration support for both virtualized and nonvirtualized systems.
“Fiscal 2010 was a defining year for Cisco following the unprecedented global economic challenges of the year before.

Returning to his office in San Jose from the Christmas break on 2 January 2007, Richard Palmer, Senior Vice President of Cisco Security Technology Group, was still reflecting on his intense discussions over the past few months with Cisco Corporate Development Group about the ongoing negotiations with Scott Weiss, CEO of privately-held IronPort Systems of San Bruno (California). IronPort was the leading provider of email security solutions, focusing on spam and spyware protection for the enterprise market. By 2007, Cisco was the world leader in networking technology for the internet, having grown from two employees with one product in 1984 to more than 63,000 people, 200 offices worldwide, and 50 product lines. Its product portfolio consisted of several categories: network systems (routers, switches, optical networking), data centre (application networking services, storage networking, data centre switches), collaboration, voice and video (voice and unified communications, video, IPTV, cable and content delivery solutions), mobility/wireless (access points, outdoor wireless, wireless LAN controllers) and security (firewall, virtual private networks, security management). Cisco was also considered to be a best-in-class acquirer of high-tech companies by industry experts as well as corporate strategy practitioners.

AZ Registrar of Contractors Joins Contracting Boards in Six Other States in Sting of Unlicensed Contractors Advertising on Craigslist The Registrar of Contractors (ROC) is joining contracting boards in Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Rhode Island and South Carolina, as well as the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA) in issuing a nationwide consumer alert about a plethora of illegal and deceptive ads placed every day on the popular craigslist website (www.craigslist.org) and other similar online bulletin boards. The Registrar of Contractors routinely investigates unlicensed contracting by checking newspapers, magazines, tradeshows and online bulletin boards such as craigslist. Craigslist is a valuable tool and is used by many licensed contractors to advertise. Unfortunately, many unlicensed contractors also use craigslist to post illegal and deceptive advertisements. In Arizona a person commits a Class 1 Misdemeanor by (1) advertising to perform services that require a contractor’s license, and/or (2) acting in the capacity of a contractor without a license. The Arizona sting led to 9 unlicensed contractor investigations. The ROC routinely refers unlicensed contracting cases to the Maricopa County Attorney’s office for prosecution. Arizona Registrar Bill Mundell said, “Joining with seven other states in conducting this unlicensed contractor sting is a historic event. This combined effort demonstrates our shared commitment to protecting honest people from the harm caused by unlicensed contractors. In order to protect Arizonans we vigorously enforce the unlicensed contractor laws.” The Oregon sting led to 28 unlicensed contractor investigations.
