While there isn’t a long list of hard and fast rules when it comes to how you furnish and decorate your home, there are two key caveats — make it unique and make it an extension of yourself and your family. Industry watchers say many Americans are leaning toward more modern looks in their homes.Ideas for furnishing and decorating the home are available like never before. We’re surrounded by an increasing number of home design publications, TV shows, and retail and warehouse stores that inspire us in transforming our homes into an extensions of ourselves. “After years of country chic and comfy clutter filling the pages of consumer magazines, people are looking for a sleeker, more modern look in their homes. The newest designs are clean and simple with sharper lines and geometric shapes. We’re replacing those supersized recliners of 2000 with pieces of furniture that are more elegant and streamlined.” — Joan McCloskey, editorial marketing director for Better Homes and Gardens magazine. And great furniture isn’t confined to just the inside of the house. Gone are the days of flimsy plastic fold-up chairs scattered about the patio.

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.
Recording events for subsequent investigation, proof of compliance / audit purposes As security risks increase, the need to visually monitor and record events in an organization’s environment has become even more important. Moreover, the value of video surveillance has grown significantly with the introduction of motion, heat, and sound detection sensors as well as sophisticated video analytics. As a result, many nontraditional groups have also found value in video monitoring and recording. In transportation, video surveillance systems monitor traffic congestion. In retail, video can be helpful in identifying customer movement throughout a store, or serve to alert management when the number of checkout lines should be changed. Some video analytics packages even offer the ability to identify a liquid spill and generate an alert enabling faster response by custodial services, thus avoiding a slip and fall situation. Product and package shipment operations can use recorded video to help track and validate the movement of cargo and help to locate lost packages. Additionally, video surveillance can be integrated with and complement access control policies, providing video corroboration of access credential use. Video surveillance has evolved not only in its application, but also in its deployment. This paper reviews the evolution of video surveillance, including the emergence of the fourth generation of video surveillance systems. These systems are realized through an open, standards-based, IP-network-centric functional and management architecture. As a network-centric company, Cisco ®
This case was written by Nir Brueller, Adjunct Professor of Strategy and Affiliated Senior Research Fellow at INSEAD, and Laurence Capron, Professor of Strategy at INSEAD and Research Director of the INSEAD-Wharton Alliance.

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.
Payday loans are short-term loans secured against future income that have very high finance charges. Payday loans become a problem when consumers cannot repay after borrowing a substantial amount against their paychecks. Instead, consumers renew the loan and pay additional fees. Some consumers take out additional loans to pay the fees on their original payday loan. The Payday Loan Reform Act (“PLRA” or “Act”) was introduced in the State Legislature in 2005 as HB 1100, passed the House of Representatives unanimously and the Senate nearly unanimously, and became effective December 6, 2005. Prior to the passage of the PLRA there were no limits on (A) payday loan finance charges, (B) the amount that a consumer could borrow or (C) the number of loans a borrower could have at any one time. In addition, the average annual percentage rate for a payday loan was approximately 595%. With passage of the Act, the payday loan industry in Illinois became state regulated for the first time and consumers were afforded protection from a form of short-term credit that many view as abusive and predatory. The Payday Loan Reform Act provides consumer protections by restricting payday lending in several ways:...
