Lucerne Publishing

There are many benefits to upgrading to Windows Server 2008 in any business environment. The Lucerne Publishing corporate office will benefit greatly from these upgrades. A computer must be designed with Windows Server 2008 to act as your Internet router. Here are some features from Window Server 2008 that will enhance the company operations according to Introducing windows server 2008: Top 10 reasons to upgrade (Shinder, 2008): Windows Server 2008 includes the Server Manager and the Advanced Event Viewer. It allows configuring, managing, and monitoring the server. In the Server Manager, you can install Server Roles (such as DNS, DHCP, Active Directory) and Role services (such as Terminal Services Gateway and RRAS). Windows Server 2008 Event Viewer provides you with Event Logs you can use. There are the usual Windows Event Logs: Application, Security, and System and Events for all applications and services installed on the computer. Windows Server 2008 can be installed in one of two ways: full installation or server core. The Server Core installation installs a subset of binaries that are required to get the core operating system running. The actual goal of Server Core is to reduce the overall attack surface and to reduce the number of updates required on the server. Terminal Services Gateway is a type of SSL VPN, in the same way that RPC/HTTP for Outlook access to Exchange Server is an SSL VPN. Terminal Services Gateway also supports Smart Card authentication and you also have the option to enforce NAP client access controls. Terminal Services Gateway is definitely one of the major reasons to upgrade to Windows Server 2008. Windows Server 2008 provides you with a…...

Challenges in the Publishing Industry

...Progress Report 2: The Challenges in the Publishing Industry A. We have chosen to cover the issue of the challenges in the publishing industry. First we will examine what is copyright law and how it encourages the creation of published works while limiting the accessibility to those works. In fact, copyright laws protect artists from having their works stolen or copied and sold for lower costs, and therefore guarantee them certain revenue. The monetary incentive increases the creation of music, movies and literature. However, those same laws limit the accessibility to these works. People who don’t have means to pay for entertainment and cultural works are deprived from it. In the field of education, author copyrights may sometimes get in the way of the learning process. It comes back to the question: should access to cultural works be free for all to access or should it be a consumer good? B. We want to interview a range of different people with different views about the subject. We will ask questions to one university professor and one Cegep literature teacher, to one young musician, to four university students, to four people from 25 to 40 years old and to four people from 40 years old and up. The questions we will ask them: 1. Describe what you think Copyright Law is? 2. Do you think it is normal to pay for a) music, b) movies and c) literature works? Why do you think so? 3. Do you think artists should get paid for what they actually do (create cultural works)......

Will Technology Save the Publishing Industry

...Assignment 1: Will Technology Save the Publishing Industry? 1. Evaluate the impact of the Internet on newspaper and book publishers using the value chain and competitive forces models. In the past, Internet has had a negative effect on all publishing, including both the newspaper and book industries. Publishing companies have experienced a decline in advertising revenues, circulation, and readership while Internet traffic to online news sites and readership of e-books has grown rapidly (1). Many blame the newspaper and publishing companies themselves, expressing a defect in the companies’ value chain and competitive force models as they relate to the Internet. According to Michael Porter’s value chain model, a company must perform each business activity in the model in the most efficient way possible in order to add value to the company, i.e. maximize shareholder wealth and sustain a competitive advantage (2). Value-adding activities that are vital to the company according to the model are inbound logistics, operations, outbound logistics, marketing and sales, and service. The infrastructure of the company, human resource management, technology development, and procurement are all supporting activities that must be performed efficiently as well (3). In the past, newspaper and book publishing companies have failed at performing these value-adding activities efficiently, leading to minuscule profit margins. Simply put, these companies failed to offer a level of......

Technological Advancements in Publishing

...Tyler Meche CMCN 170 Dr. Dinu June 14, 2013 3 Technological Advances that have Change Book Publishing Electronic books have changed book publishing. This has been an attempt by publishers to expand the market for their products. Many books are now only produced as e-books. This helps to get the publishers more profit from each book because they are not having to pay for materials to make the book. Many publishers believe that e-books are the sole way that book publishing companies can expand in the future. With the advancements of computer technology, the sales of specific books can be closely monitored. By doing so, publishers can easily make note of which books are selling rapidly. This way they make the necessary copies of the book so that stores never run out of copies of their book. This helps to keep the generated profits from those books at its maximum potential because it is preventing an unnecessary lull in profits because of all of the copies of a book being sold out. Much of the process for book publishing is done via the Internet now. Authors can e-mail their book manuscripts to publishers instead of having to use traditional mailing techniques, which cost more time and money. After the editing process, the finished book can be e-mailed anywhere in the world, allowing for quick access to the book anywhere in the world and the ability to publish the book anywhere in the world while avoiding shipping costs....

Book Publishing Industry

...Assignment 1 The book publishing industry is rapidly changing. Gone are the days of brick and mortar book stores. People desire the fast paced changing world that technology has created. Technology has led to a total and complete transformation of the way books are sold. This new phenomena is known as the electronic book. The electronic book or eBook allows users to download their favorite book right to there handheld reader. These readers take the form of dedicated eBook devices such as the Kindle or fully integrated digital media devices such as the IPad. These downloads are relatively inexpensive compared to buying the printed book version. Also, as technology progresses and the market becomes more saturated the price of the readers will fall even lower than their already relatively affordable prices. Does this new form of media have enough to overtake its predecessor of the printed book? The introduction of this near perfect sounding new media is facing some resistance. This resistance is coming for the publishers that produce the material in the first place. They are fighting to keep the old business model of printed books alive. This struggle is similar to that of the music industry. The once striving music industry is now crumbled due to the introduction of online music downloads. Most of this is due to illegal music sharing, but it is also attributable to the pricing of the songs. Publishers fear that this will have the same effect on the book industry. There......

Paper Publishing vs E-Publishing

...Dorand Xhelili-121019 Paper Publishing vs E-Publishing History of Paper Publishing The introduction of printing created a medium for communication like no other. "Until the advent of radio it was the great means of communication". As paper became more widely available in the thirteenth century writing became more prominent. When the need to reproduce texts became greater, Gutenberg's movable type came about followed by a variety of other printing processes. By 1500 somewhere around 12,000,000 books in 35,000 editions had been printed. The world's first newspaper was published in Germany in 1609. But with such volumes suddenly being distributed, regulations were made to prohibit unrestrained publishing in 1637 when England limited the number of print shops and foundries by decrees. "In the cradle years of printing opposition came chiefly from organized calligraphers and illuminators whose livelihood was threatened. The content of manuscripts was seldom in question; most were classics or ecclesiastical writings and many were in Greek or Latin, which made them inaccessible to all but a few scholars and churchmen. But with the coming of the seventeenth century, printing was being viewed as a threat to established power, both religious and political. Though people like John Milton spoke out in favor of freedom of press and against requiring official censoring before publication of any text, governments' fear of political unrest kept even the first......

Website Publishing Process

...Website Publishing Process IT/237 Website Publishing Process There are many steps to take before publishing a site on the Internet. Many hosting services offer on-site design tools to aid in the creation of the site. These tools can make web design much easier for someone who has no HTML, CSS or, Java experience. One example of a web hosting service can be found at http://www.ipage.com/ipage/index.html. With this particular hosting service is not completely necessary to have completed on your own using software such as Dreamweaver or other related programs. The service has built in software that enables a customer to create a site suitable to their needs. A good knowledge of HTML and CSS construction will be a highly beneficial skill to possess when using a service as such. The first step of publishing a new website through a website hosting company is to determine the purpose and the layout you wish for your website. Once a general layout of a site is determined one can start searching for a web host. Determining the layout, purpose, and overview has been completed the user should have a general idea of how much space and bandwidth will be needed for the site to run properly. This is a major factor in determining a web host service. If a site is expected to grow as time goes on and business continues, it would be prudent to choose a hosting service that has adequate space for the site’s needs. If the site proposed has downloadable......

Will Technology Save the Publishing Industry?

...The publishing industry is grappling with disruptive technologies that may transform its business models and the way we buy and read books. What is the impact of the Internet and e-book technology on book and newspaper publishing? Who will win and who will lose out, and how will the struggle play out? Newspapers are the most troubled segment of the publishing industry, due to the availability of alternatives to the printed newspaper and publishers' inability to protect valuable content from being distributed for free over the Internet. Over 60 percent of newspapers have reduced news staff in the past three years and about the same percentage report reducing the size of their newspapers. Readership has been declining for about a decade and advertising is down 15 percent a year. Alternative online sources of news such as Yahoo, Google, and blogs have become major sources of news for many Americans, especially younger readers. At first glance, the online newspaper industry appears to be a classic case of a disruptive technology destroying a traditional business model based on physical products and physical distribution. But the newspapers have much valuable content worth preserving and they have acquired a huge online audience. Next to social networks, newspapers have the largest online audience of any media, and online newspaper readership is growing by 17 percent each year. Contrary to popular opinion, they are one of the most successful forms of online content to date.......

Global Investor Publishing

...Global Investor Publishing (GIP)’s financial problems are industry related. Two primary industry events lead to the 1998 Russian financial crisis: (1.) the onset of the Asian financial crisis in 1997 precipitated a speculative attack on the Russian ruble resulting in a loss of approximately $6 billion in foreign exchange reserves by the Central Bank of Russia for defending the ruble, and (2.) a decrease in demand for Russia’s largest exports, crude oil and nonferrous metals, triggered price drops that severely impacted foreign exchange reserves. On August 13, 1998, the Russia stock market, bond, and currency markets collapsed from investor fear of a government debt default and/or devaluation of the ruble. As a result, the Russian government was forced to default on its domestic sovereign debt, devalue the ruble, and suspend payments by commercial banks to foreign creditors for 90-days. Based on the timing of the Russian financial crisis, GIP’s 1998 net loss of -104.3% from the prior year (- $6,177 in 1998 vs. $144,710 in 1997), and the firm’s desperation to protect its market share from further decline, merging with Emerging Markets Fund Research (EMFR) makes sense. The merger would provide the combined firms with economies of scale, growth opportunities, diversification, increase revenues, expansion into new markets, defensive measures for protecting its market share, and management efficiencies. For a merger to successfully deliver an improvement in economies of......

Fargo Publishing

...Fargo Publishing I. Discuss the benefits of integrating Human Resource Management (HRM) and payroll databases. There are numerous benefits of integrating HRM and payroll databases. One benefit is the improvement in the providing of data access. Another benefit is the facilitation of the updating of employee data as there will only be one update necessary as opposed to the updating of two separate systems. A third benefit is the improvement in decision-making as it will allow access to more relevant information that is required for employee development. II. Discuss the current problems related to labor at Fargo Publishing. Currently, the HRM department directly participates in the payroll processing and paycheck distribution which displays a lack of segregation of duties. This increases risk of fraud and inability to detect and correct fraud. The employees are also completing their time cards by using a box that prints the date and time. This may leave room for inaccuracies which may result in increased labor expenses and erroneous labor reports. The time card data, which is used for calculating payroll, should be reconciled to the job-time ticket data used for costing and managerial purposes, by an individual not involved in generating that data. III. Discuss three recommendations to improve the problem related to labor at Fargo Publishing. My first recommendation would be segregate the payroll duties. This segregation of duties would prevent someone with access...

People may also fall into a dilemma when relationships are involved, law can help people leave their relationship aside and deal with their current situation and come up with a fair judgment.

Ethics of Publishing Studies

...Ethics of Publishing Studies on Modern Societies Throughout the years anthropologists have been asking tough questions about the ethics involved in studying other cultures. Many answers to these tough questions have been given, but few of these answers are shared universally by anthropologists. Anthropologists have come to follow a set of guidelines based strongly on anonymity and objectivism, but as the world grows into a more modern state these guidelines must be reviewed and questioned as the nature of research changes. Two separate ethnographies detailed in the essays “The Anthropological Looking Glass” and “Grief and a Headhunter’s Rage” written and performed by Nancy Scheper-Hughes and Renato Rosaldo, respectively, show the broad range of consequences that occur in the societies under study when following similar ethical codes of conduct. More specifically, the change that may occur in these societies is a result of the publishing of the studies, not necessarily the act of performing the study in and of itself. The current code of ethics shared by the anthropological community is ill equipped to deal with studies involving modern societies. Modern societies, those that are well connected with the world outside of them, are exposed to cultural interference from the publication of ethnographies performed on them. This interference can cause change in a subject society’s normal and natural rate and direction of cultural growth. Cultural interference and the change imposed......

Desktop Publishing

...DESKTOP PUBLISHING Desktop Publishing Software allows you to use your computer (sitting on your desktop) as if it were a publishing house.  You can write and edit documents, and print them. With DTP software, you can generally do a much better job, and use the proper typography. Bear in mind that DTP software is designed for you to print something, and give away the printed material. It’s rarely suitable to give away the DTP files, as they’re typically reliant on the configuration of your own personal computer.  If you want to exchange fancy document files with people, you’re better off using a format more suited to that sort of thing; like HTML on the world wide web, PDF (Portable Document Format) for more general purpose situations (it’s prime focus is to make documents printable on different systems in a consistent manner), or RTF (Rich Text Format) documents for when you want to exchange electronic documents between different computer systems, and need something a bit better than just plain text. Desktop Publisher is a small-scale equivalent of a printing press on a personal computer.  Whereas a word processor is chiefly aimed at being something that can produce a document, “desktop publishing” is about laying out things on pages (it may be a single document, it could be several separate articles in a single publication, and can include images and diagrams). You have full control over what's printed on a page, where it's printed, how it's printed, and how printing is......
