Cloud-enabling technologies

Write a discussion topic on Differentiate between multi-tenancy and virtualization. Why are these necessary as cloud-enabling technologies?

Please follow APA 7 format and the discussion must contain at-least 250 – 300 words. You can use online resources as well.

Answer preview
Finally, multi-tenancy and virtualization are different in their level of complexity. Multi-tenancy is more complex and harder to maintain while virtualization is less sophisticated but more comfortable to keep over time. According to Khan and Alzaharani (2018), multitenancy has a high degree of interconnectedness, allowing different tenants to have a shared server. This makes it more complicated in technical maintenance. On the contrary, virtualization is more straightforward as each tenant has a unique application on a separate operating system. Though the costs are high, maintaining this system is more comfortable. Both are however, important as they are fundamental architectures necessary for operating in the cloud environment.

Defining a Community

What Is Community?

There are many ways to define and describe a community. Based on your personal experience, describe a community in which you engage. How does that compare with the ideas from the required readings or other literature?

Answer preview

The above description compares with other definitions of community. According to Wang et al. (2018), a community in the topology of networks is a subgroup of a graph with more than two nodes connected by links from both directions. This definition differs from my description in that the elements must be linked to each other from both directions. However, the definitions share the feature that a community must consist of two or more items.  Jull, Giles, and Graham (2017) mention that a community from a health perspective contains the locus, social ties, common interest, and joint action elements. This means a community is something that could be traced using boundaries. People in a community have social ties through family, friends, or acquaintances and share a common interest such as norms.

(13) Is it ever rational to have faith in God?

(14) Does immortality have any essential role to play in an account of the meaning of life?

(15) Is death necessary for one’s life to be meaningful?

(16) If all that exists is the natural world, then can life ever be meaningful?

Answer preview

Settling on a uniform definition of scientific realism has so far proven to be challenging, with people often attaching different meanings to it (Luk, 2019). Despite all the various definitions, there is a core set of ideals espoused in any definition given. They revolve around the fact that the theoretical terms people come across in physical theories are mind-independent and unobservable entities. Scientific realism steers clear of canvassing the distinction between observables and non-observables (Luk, 2019). Some define it as the truthful or almost truthful aspects of scientific theories. Others look at it as the successful application of theoretical terms in the actual world.

Secondly, it advocates for the extension of the fair sentencing act (FSA) to the offenders incarcerated beyond 2010.  FSA of 2010 distinguished the penalties between cocaine powder and crack. Since the establishment of this act, many defendants have benefitted. However, the law does not apply to individuals incarcerated past 2010. Therefore, SRCA allows judges to apply FSA retroactively (Grawert, & Raghavan,2018).  Thirdly, the law focuses on reducing recidivism.  SRCA requires the Bureau of Prisons to come up with more productive programs that will reduce recidivism. Prisons should implement programs like skills training, education, drug rehabilitation, work programs, and faith-based classes.

In the United States, the Equal Pay Act mandates employers to offer equal payments to both male and female workers for equal jobs (Sha, 2019). According to the law, equal payment not only comprises of equal salaries but also bonuses, training, overtime benefits, and reimbursements. Despite this legal provision, gender pay disparity has shown persistence.  The major reason is gender discrimination. Holman, Stuart-Fox & Hauser (2018) reports that women have engaged in higher education and technical fields such as STEM but have been discriminated into getting first and sometimes subsequent jobs that are well paying. This discourages their efforts to pursue higher levels hence the gap persistence. Employing ethics at the workplace will create a perception of professional potential to deliver quality work regardless of their gender and thus will wear out discrimination and champion equality.

Science-based evidence

Why will people defend their beliefs even in the face of opposing evidence? Why will they come up with reasons to defend their internalized beliefs?

Head-on attempts to persuade people to change their minds about their beliefs by providing them with science-based evidence that contradicts their beliefs sometimes “backfires”. This backfiring can range from ignoring scientific evidence to using that evidence to support their original beliefs. This has been shown to occur with topics as diversified as climate change, creationism, afterlife, religion (and the four horsemen) 15th and 16th century refusals to believe that the earth was not the center of the universe, etc. This question is not asking specifically about “soul beliefs”, but about internalized beliefs in general. Be sure to include references for The Anatomy of Internalized Beliefs, Terror Management Theory, After Life & Out of Body, Big Ideas and Big Controversies and the Psychology and Scientific Thinking Chapter.

In a 3-page double-spaced paper (12 pt, New Times Roman font) write a well-documented (cite readings and lectures) essay that demonstrates in-depth knowledge from the course that bears on the topic of the need to protect and defend certain worldviews and how these relate to fighting evolution in the school system.

Further, learning makes people act from instincts, and with continuous practice, this becomes an ingrained habit that helps them defend their beliefs. A practical example given by Ogilvie and Anglin (4) is the constant practice of applying sunscreen when exposed to the sun. People act from instinct based on the belief that the sun rays can cause skin cancer. The same case applies to what children are taught when growing up. They learn to believe in the Almighty to avoid the consequences of suffering in hell. What people learn from childhood to adulthood becomes challenging to shed, becoming an everyday practice. These repetitive actions strengthen people’s beliefs, where Hamilton (1) discloses that primary caregivers, religious leaders, and teachers play a significant role in teaching children to uphold good morals.

Technology Concentration and Performance

Answer two of the following questions, and respond to at least one other student’s post afterward for a total of at least 400 words. This assignment is due by Sunday, August 23rd, at 11:59PM.

1. In Chapter 4, Sternheimer discusses the concerns about technology raised by the communications scholar Neil Postman, who was fond of saying “technology giveth and taketh away.” What were Postman’s main concerns about technology’s impact on our ability to think? According to Sternheimer, in what ways was Postman “partly right”? Given that she was writing in 2013, does her argument (and/or Postman’s) hold up in 2020? In your mind, what has the internet age done to our critical thinking skills, especially in regards to our current pandemic?

2. Discuss some of the scientific studies on television that have been conducted over the years. What were some of their key findings, and what seem to be some of their insights and limitations? Specifically, what links do these studies find between ADHD (and even autism) and television? Do we see similar issues surrounding internet access?

3. What problems does Sternheimer find with linking media to violence, and what approaches does she suggest as an alternative? What role might media play in making the public think that violence (and youth violence in particular) may be more common than it appears? (Think about current media coverage of “rioting” for example). Finally, what factors does Sternheimer suggest are better indicators for violence?

4. How has the media approached the relationship between violence and video games, particularly since the Columbine massacre in the 1990s? What issues does Sternheimer find with the argument that children are prone to imitating media violence? Finally, consider the followingnews report (Links to an external site.)

Minimize Videoon a crime blamed on Grand Theft Auto. Is this another example of media hysteria surrounding video games, or do you believe such games require closer scrutiny?

Note: In order to encourage earlier rather than later in the week postings to the discussion board, students who post at least 100 words (either as one or multiple postings) to the discussion board by midnight Wednesday each week will receive 5 points of extra credit added to their weekly point total. No partial credit will be given for early postings totaling less than 100 words.

However, the technologies do not impede public discourse because some technologies like the internet have increased public discourse. Even though technologies have created amusements that have made people shun books, technologies like the internet and televisions have increased access to information, and this has ultimately increased public discourse. Citizens are increasingly using blogs and YouTube for active entertainment in addition to engaging citizens in critical issues affecting the country. The new technologies have also created new ways of educating people and hence furthering the accessibility of knowledge. Sternheimer, however, says that Postman’s claims that technologies were weakening public discourse could be because technologies were still young when he wrote on the issue.

Secondly, they should de-identify customers’ records or information before doing data mining. Therefore, this helps the companies remove all personal information from the data mined to avoid ethical and legal issues. Also, before accessing the data, the users are told to consent that they will not attempt to identify people connected with the figures presented under no circumstance.

Indeed, privacy issues in data mining are substantiated. The privacy issues in data mining are not so common. During the data mining process, professionals ensure that there is no personal information connected with the figures (Sharda, Delen, & Turban, 2020).  moreover, they establish that all ethical concerns in data extracting, storing, and analysis are addressed.

Before opening the scene, police officers and other responders can share information on relevant scene findings at the debriefing of the crime scene. It guides follow-up investigations, special requests for help and defines post-scene requirements (Grimm et al., 2017). The police officers and other responders must encourage debriefing of the scene of crimes to ensure the investigation is complete and to verify post-scene tasks. The officer responsible for the crime scene should form a crime scene debriefing squad (Gardner & Krouskup, 2018). The investigating officer must collect reports and other documents relating to the investigation into a case file. This file will summarize the evidence obtained from the crime scene and the actions taken (Lillis, Becker, O’Sullivan & Scanlon, 2016). The documentation would allow an impartial evaluation of the work that has been completed (Casey, 2011).

Scientific learning opportunities

Educators should be familiar with the materials used within the classroom to provide students with scientific learning opportunities. Often, the teacher needs supplemental materials to provide rich, hands-on learning experiences.

Write a 500-750 word letter to a principal requesting developmentally appropriate classroom resources for science instruction in a pre-K-3 classroom.

Include the following in your letter:

  • A rationale for using grade appropriate classroom resources, particularly technology, in early childhood science instruction to meet the needs of students and strengthen the learning environment.
  • A list of three developmentally appropriate classroom resources. At least one requested resource must be a technology that is interactive and can extend the possibilities for learning. For each resource include an explanation of the following:
    • How the resource facilitates scientific exploration and develops curiosity of students in the intended age range
    • How the resource helps engage students with different learning styles or preferences or who come from diverse backgrounds
    • How to obtain the resource and its approximate cost

Visuals may be used within this list to clarify materials.

Support your letter with at least three scholarly resources.

While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

classmates on implementing the activities viewed from the videos (NAEYC, 2012). Access to these materials would require about $47 for internet connectivity to educational websites, such as SciShow Kids on YouTube. The translation, image, and content enhancement tools in the YouTube clips would accommodate learners with unique needs.


  • Secondly, toys such as building bricks or Legos would enhance the computational thinking capabilities that enhance creativity and curiosity. The building activities using Legos would encourage the learners to confront the established phenomenon and figure out how to develop a solution (ECLKC, 2018). Notably, the teaming up of groups would enhance engagement when the students share their views on constructing a reasonable model that addresses the identified problem. Getting a variety of blocks would accommodate children with unique learning abilities. Accessing these toys from Amazon would cost approximately $23.99 for 1000 pieces.
