Business – definition of business by The Free Dictionary, business information.#Business #information

business

These nouns apply to forms of activity that have the objective of supplying products or services for a fee. Business pertains broadly to commercial, financial, and industrial activity, and more narrowly to specific fields or firms engaging in this activity: a company that does business over the internet; went into the software consulting business; owns a dry-cleaning business. Industry entails the production and manufacture of goods or commodities, especially on a large scale: the computer industry. Commerce and trade refer to the exchange and distribution of goods or commodities: laws regulating interstate commerce; involved in the domestic fur trade. Traffic pertains in particular to businesses engaged in the transportation of goods or passengers: renovated the docks to attract shipping traffic. The word may also suggest illegal trade: discovered a brisk traffic in stolen goods.

Riding waves is great. Making them is even better! The Business Information Systems (BIS) curriculum will teach you to harness technology to help organizations achieve a competitive advantage in today’s rapidly changing environment.

You will gain a firm foundation in business administration and learn to architect, manage, develop and deploy information systems. Depending on your skills and interests you might become a business process analyst, IT project manager, data modeler, systems analyst, software quality tester, developer or database administrator, or you can choose from other technology-related business careers.

You won’t only learn theory. You have plenty of opportunities to build, troubleshoot, refine and manage information systems through targeted exercises in real-world projects and current projects sponsored by outside companies to help you learn to bring together people, business processes and information technology.

The Students in Information Management (SIM) club meets weekly for presentations by recruiters and consultants, giving you a chance to interact with potential employers.

You can apply to join the Multiple Engineering Co-Operative Program (MECOP) and experience full system development and testing at the Center for Applied Systems and Software (CASS), develop IT service delivery expertise working for the college’s information services department, or immerse yourself in one of the many BIS internships offered by outside organizations. As an intern you can apply what you learned in class in real-world organizations and develop marketable skills. And when you come back to school, you can share your experiences and newly acquired skills. Go make some waves!

Your freshman and sophomore years in BIS will be largely confined to starting the OSU baccalaureate core and the Business Core (see Requirements .) These courses are required of all business students. The BIS major courses are completed during the junior and/or senior years. Students should review the BIS major specific requirements .

The OSU College of Business BIS and Accounting programs are certified by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). Students who complete their studies in both disciplines, will need only two, instead of the three years of practice normally required for the prestigious Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA ) certification. For more information on the CISA certification, see the requirements at isaca.org.

Participation in BIS-specific enrichment activities expand your understanding and build your skills beyond the classroom. The Students in Information Management (SIM) Club meets weekly for presentations by recruiters, consultants or software instruction. Principal activities include weekly meetings, a career night in the winter, field trips in the winter and spring, and a graduation event in the spring.

Pursuing paid internships, including the Multiple Engineering Cooperative Program (MECOP), increases your career opportunities after graduation. BIS students are supported by scholarships and awards, by the BIS Advisory Council. and the Portland Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM).

Business Information Guide

PDF of step-by-step instructions on how to find HBR articles and case studies in Business Source Elite.

Significant reporting and analysis of management topics appear in the periodical Harvard Business Review . Syracuse University Libraries offers affiliated students, staff, and faculty full-text access to HBR articles and case studies online via the database Business Source Elite (which indexes HBR content back to 1922, with full-text article coverage from 1985 thru present).

Instructions for finding Harvard Business Review Articles Case Studies in Business Source Elite

NOTE: The case studies in HBR are short (around four pages each) and should not be confused with the premium Harvard Business Publishing case studies noted on this page under Harvard Case Studies.

Harvard Business Review 500
At the request of Harvard Business Publishing, EBSCO has made 500 of the most popular Harvard Business Review articles read only by disabling the printing, saving, and persistent linking functionality for these articles in Business Source Elite. All Business Source Elite subscribers (including SU Libraries) were offered the option to restore this basic functionality by paying an additional annual premium fee. When Syracuse University Libraries requested a quote from EBSCO to restore full access to the 500 HBR articles, we were presented with a significant five figure amount. SU Libraries is disinclined to pursue the option to restore full access to the HBR 500 by paying this premium. Not only is the price per article exorbitant, but more importantly, agreeing to such a fee in order to restore access to content for which we have already paid. could set a terrible precedent.

What matters and what we wish to emphasize is that, if HBP s new model catches on, having to essentially pay twice (or multiple times) for the same online content will erode the Libraries ability to provide other resources to the SU research community. In short, it s a zero-sum game when it comes to Libraries acquisitions that support research, and this development further adds to the costs of supporting scholarship. In declining to license with HBP under the proffered terms, the SU Libraries goal is to protect our ability to support research at SU to our utmost. While that may sound contradictory, at least in the short-term, in the long-term it most assuredly is not. To learn more about this, please see the blog post titled SU Libraries Stance on Restricted HBR Articles .

Harvard Business Review in Print

Print editions of the Harvard Business Review from 1922 to the present are available in Syracuse University Libraries’ print collection.

Harvard Case Studies

Harvard Business Publishing case studies cover all areas of management, business planning, marketing, accounting, finance, organizational behavior, entrepreneurship and more. The case studies range from 10 to 30 pages in length and often include an author provided guide, called a teaching note, on how to teach the case in the classroom.

These case studies should not be confused with the short case studies published in the Harvard Business Review and available in full text via SU Libraries’ database Business Source Elite.

Access to the Harvard Business Publishing case studies requires individual purchase of cases, including purchase of copyright permission in situations where multiple copies are desired. Harvard does not offer institutional subscriptions that permit an academic library to subscribe to these case studies.

  • Students and faculty visiting the HBP site can freely search and browse topics to identify case studies of interest
  • Access to the full-text case study PDFs requires individual purchase (often priced between $5 and $10 per case)
  • Options for student access to cases selected by faculty are available under a coursepack style access model (in some instances, students enrolled in such courses can receive purchase discounts on cases their faculty identify)
  • S.U. faculty interested in access (for themselves or their students) should explore detailed information about applying for Harvard Business Publishing’s Case Study “Educator Access”

Business Analytics enables organisations exploit the data and IS systems at its disposal to maximise organisational performance. Students will develop the skills necessary to gain business insights to improve decision-making.

The MSc in Business Information and Analytics Systems provides students with a portfolio of business and analytical methods for solving problems and supporting decision making. The MSc BIAS provides students with a specialism in Business Analytics as well as an extensive knowledge of business and IS concepts. At the core of this programme is a selection of topics covering cloud technologies, Business Intelligence and Business Analytics, IT performance management. data management and IT project management. A research project will allow student groups to explore and develop an IT solution to a specific business problem in an area specific to the Business Information and Analytics area.

Business Analyst and Project Manager are listed as two of the top ten jobs in the IS / IT sector[1]. The MSc Business Information and Analytics (MSc BIAS) is designed to provide students with the skillset to be successful in these roles. Organisations today need people who know how to manage and store data that helps them make better business decisions, compared to years ago when businesses didn’t have data management at their fingertips to review and analyse to help them drive business forward.

The MSc in Business Information and Analytic Systems degree offers a specialisation in Business Analytics with modules such as:

  • Design thinking for the Business Analyst
  • Business Data Strategy
  • Data Visualisation
  • Business Analytics and Business Intelligence
  • Cognitive Decision Making and DSS

These modules will allow students to acquire the skills to mine and analyse data in ways that will enable more informed decision making and result in better outcomes for the organisation. How organisations capture, create and use data is changing the way we work and live. Businesses have more data readily available than ever before and are aware of the need to understand the underlying messages that are held within their data. However, discovering and identifying the underlying message requires a higher level of thinking and analysis.

Additionally the course offers a curriculum of core IS modules including:

  • Cloud Technology
  • Data Acquisition and Management
  • Project Management
  • IT and Organisational Performance
  • Enterprise Business Processes

These core modules provide students with the technical skills and techniques needed by organisations to explore organisational issues and support decision-making within a business context. These skills are essential in any organisation where IT is integral to the success of the business. A group research project facilitates students in the practical application of the Information Systems and Business analytical skills that are acquired during the programme.

Eligibility for the MSc BIAS requires candidates to have a 2.2 primary degree at NFQ Level 8 Honours Degree or equivalent, with appropriate information systems or computing technology skills content. You may also be admitted to the course on the basis of extensive practical or professional experience, as deemed appropriate by the Professor of Business Information Systems and the School of Business. Typical students are from technical disciplines such as, Management Information Systems (MIS) or Business Information Systems (BIS), engineering, computer science and mathematics. It is also suitable for business and humanities graduates who have studied computer science and Business Information Systems (BIS) subjects with some computer programming content.

Application for this programme is on-line at www.pac.ie/ucc. Places on this programme are offered in rounds. The closing dates for each round can be found here. For full details of the application procedure click How to apply.

Please note that you will be asked to fill in a supplementary form as part of the application process for this programme. A copy of this form is available here CKL51 MSc (Business Information Analytical Systems Suppl Form (17kB)

All required documentation must be sent in hard copy to The Postgraduate Applications Centre, 1, Courthouse Square, Galway.

The School of Law uses a system of offer rounds to facilitate decision-making and early notification to applicants. Candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Candidates who do not have their final degree marks available may be made a conditional (provisional) offer.

New applications will continue to be reviewed at each round if there are still programme places available.

16 lecture hours per week, with 2 hours of lab work per week. Between 3 and 5 field trips will be organised throughout the year. Group project work continues to early July at the latest, concluding the formal course content. However, students may be required to complete an individual essay in their own time up until the end of July/early August.

A hybrid approach to assessment is used in this programme. Assessments methods include formal written exams, essays, group and individual project work and some lab practicals. Some modules are 100% continuous assessment and most modules have a minimum of 40% continuous assessment. During the programme, students will work individually and in groups. A strong emphasis is placed on oral presentation of work.

The course is taught by academic staff from the Cork University Business School. The academics who teach on the course are experts in their field. These lecturers all have PhDs and/or significant industry experience. Several of the Faculty have worked previously at leading IT organisations, major banks and research agencies. Our academic staff are also engaged in research with involvement in or leadership of research centers in UCC, and publish regularly in international peer-reviewed IT / IS and business journals.

The Gate to Orihuela-Costa – Beaches in Orihuela Costa #orihuela-costa, #orihuela #costa,


#

Das Tor zur Orihuela Costa

El Portal de Orihuela Costa – The Gate to Orihuela Costa

Orihuela Costa has 16 kilometres of coastline which varies from rugged coastline with crystal-clear water to fine white sandy beaches. These beaches are ideal for water-sports, fishing etc. or for just relaxing and enjoying the wonderful Orihuela Costa weather.

Orihuela Costa can boast some of the best beaches in Spain. Year after year Orihuela gets awarded with Q for Quality flags, which are internationally recognised as the highest award which can be given to beaches, meaning they have passed a multitude of tests and are among the best in the world.

The first beaches to be awarded with these Q flags are Cala Capitan, Cala las Estacas and Playa de la Glea. Orihuela Costa already holds four blue flags and eleven Qualitur flags, and is the resort to hold most flags in the whole of the Valencian Community.

WHAT IS Q FOR QUALITY? The Q award is the seal of Spanish Tourism Quality. Tourist products with the Q mark meet necessary quality requirements and clients demands. The Q denotes prestige, reliability, commitment and distinction. Its objective is to achieve recognition by consumers and tour operators. Establishments eligible for the Q for Quality Tourism designation in Spain are: hotels, restaurants, travel agencies, campsites, nature areas, tourist offices, convention bureaux, conference centres, beaches, golf courses, rural accommodation, ski resorts, regional tourist boards and active tourism centres.

Presentation of Orihuela Costa

Pictures of Orihuela Costa

Orihuela Costa – Punta Prima

This very attractive and popular beach is bordered on the north by the beach of N ufragos (Torrevieja) and on the south by Playa Flamenca.

The narrow cove beach is a favourite of the regular holiday-makers and is divided into two levels with a length of 170 meters by 14 wide and it is accessed by ramps and stairs. It is planned to install a lift this year which will facilitate access for the elderly and physically handicapped to the beach area. This will not only provide a much needed service but will hopefully assist in the gaining of a first Blue Flag for the beach next year.

This beach also boasts the full range of facilities that one would expect on an Orihuela Costa beach together with a bus stop and public telephone.

Orihuela Costa – Playa Flamenca

This popular and award winning beach has a length of 150 meters with an average width of 16 meters and there are no obstacles in accessing it.

This is an open beach of fine sand and it is extremely popular with bathers and sun-seekers alike. Bordered on the north by the beach at Punta Prima and south by La Zenia beach Playa Flamenca is one of the busiest beaches on the Orihuela Costa.

This beach has again been awarded the prized Blue Flag, acknowledging the constant attention the beach and its facilities receive from the town hall.

There are parking facilities, special access for handicapped people, telephone, play area, toilets and foot-washing facilities, a life-guard tower and a Red Cross station. There is also a bus stop and taxi rank. There is also a popular promenade and several walkways. Close to the beach are a number of popular restaurants where visitors can taste the traditional dishes of the area.

    Credit Freeze Guide: The best way to protect yourself against identity theft

    Team Clark is adamant that we will never write content influenced by or paid for by an advertiser. To support our work, we do make money from some links to companies and deals on our site. Learn more about our guarantee here.

    Credit freezes are one of the most effective ways for consumers to protect themselves against identity theft.

    What exactly is a credit freeze?

    A credit freeze allows you to seal your credit reports and use a personal identification number (PIN) that only you know and can use to temporarily thaw your credit when legitimate applications for credit and services need to be processed. The added layer of security means that thieves can t establish new credit in your name even if they are able to obtain your personal information.

    Freezing your credit files has no impact whatsoever on your existing lines of credit, such as credit cards. You can continue to use them as you regularly would even when your credit is frozen.

    Freezes have been available for free to victims of identity theft for some years, but recently all three of the major credit bureaus adopted new rules that now allow non-victims to have access to credit freezes as well for a small fee. In addition, most states and Puerto Rico have adopted laws establishing credit freezes for residents of their state.

    Residents of various states may also freeze the credit reports of their minor children. Visit the National Conference of State Legislatures to see what the law is in your state.

    The cost ranges from about $3 to $10 per person per bureau to freeze a credit report; a couple of states have higher fees.

    *When you do a credit freeze, it is imperative that you freeze your credit with all three bureaus.*

    The cost to thaw your reports for one creditor — or for a specific period of time — ranges from free to $10.

    Four states remove your credit freeze automatically after seven years. These states are Kentucky, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and South Dakota.

    In most states, your credit freeze remains permanently on your files until you request removal. But not so in the states listed above, according to the Consumers Union’s guide to security freeze protection .

    If you re a resident of one of these states, pay close attention. You ll need to set some kind of calendar reminder for seven years from the date of placement. That will serve as a reminder to refresh your credit freeze status before it drops off your radar completely and you go months or years without this key protection against identity theft!

    When shouldn t you freeze your credit?

    If your credit reports are accessed often for work or because you create new accounts with various financial institutions on a regular basis, it is not recommended that you freeze your accounts. The costs to regularly thaw your reports would tend to be excessive.

    SANS Cyber Security Training

    SANS cyber security training is an essential element in the development of individuals and teams that are prepared to protect governmental, military, and commercial institutions from cyberattacks.

    The SANS Institute is the most trusted, and by far the largest, provider of training, certification, and research to cyber security professionals globally.

    • In 2015, SANS trained over 30,000 people, including professionals from 91% of the Fortune 100, nearly every US government agency involved in our country’s defense against cyberattack, and their counterparts at our most trusted allies in Europe and Asia.
    • Fewer than 75 people are currently qualified to be SANS-Certified Instructors globally. This extraordinary cadre of individuals have been selected through a rigorous process that tests both their expertise in the field *and* their ability to teach effectively. As a group, they author our courses, design our curriculum, and deliver the training in classrooms and online.
    • The 300 employees of the SANS Institute work diligently to enable these instructors to deliver these courses at venues around the world and online, constantly measuring the quality of students’ experience and learning.

    The SANS Promise is that students will be able to use what they learn in class the moment they return to their office.

    SANS Cyber Security Courses

    Advance your career and explore our cyber security training courses and cyber security training events near you, including our site focused on SANS cyber security training in the UK and Europe. Our curricula span from the core essential technical skills and strategies that every cyber security professional should know, to advanced topics in penetration testing and ethical hacking, digital forensics and incident response, defense of critical infrastructure, application development, and audit, and legal topics.

    GIAC Cyber Security certifications

    GIAC (Global Information Assurance Certification) was founded in 1999 to validate the skills of cyber security professionals. The purpose of GIAC is to provide assurance that a certified individual has the knowledge and skills necessary for a practitioner in key areas of computer, information and software security. GIAC certifications are trusted by thousands of companies and government agencies, and are unique because they measure specific skills and knowledge areas rather than general infosec knowledge. Learn more about GIAC’s cyber security certifications at www.giac.org .

    Cyber Security degrees and education

    Cyber security masters degrees and graduate certificates in cyber security are available from the SANS Technology Institute. The SANS Technology Institute Master of Science degree programs offer candidates an unparalleled opportunity to excel in the two aspects of cybersecurity that are most important to the success of their employer and their own careers: technical mastery, and managerial competency. In addition to the cyber security master’s degree program, the SANS Technology Institute makes shorter groups of courses available to students who are unable to commit to a full master’s degree program. These cyber security graduate certificates will augment your skills, provide specialized training, enable you to earn employer-recognized GIAC certifications, and impart a specialized credential from the SANS Technology Institute that will help advance your career. Participants enrolled in these graduate certificate programs likely qualify for tuition reimbursement if their employer offers that benefit, and these programs are eligible for veterans benefits.

    Cyber Security Awareness

    Cyber security awareness training is essential to reduce the risk that your employees can be tricked by sophisticated phishing or social engineering methods into serving unknowingly as entry points into your information and data systems. SANS Securing the Human award-winning programs provide an extensive set of security awareness services to help keep your workplace and information secure.

    Information Assurance (IA)

    Information Assurance (IA) is defined by Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) 8500.01E as “measures that protect and defend information and information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation.” Successful protection of Department of Defense (DoD) assets requires policy compliance and an understanding of the vulnerabilities humans face when interacting with information systems. Personnel and Readiness Information Management (P R IM) offers a suite of services to ensure the successful implementation of IA measures and compliance with DoD policy.

    P R IM offers guidance and training in the following areas:

      • Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Program (DIACAP). DIACAP supports the Certification and Accreditation (C A) of DoD Information Technology (IT) systems by providing the framework and requirements for C A to be utilized by organizations and system owners. P R IM provides oversight to and/or manages the C A process on Defense Human Resources Activity (DHRA) components information systems.
    • Employee Awareness. Employee awareness is a countermeasure against the vulnerabilities discussed above and a means to reduce human-related risks. To maximize the protection of systems and information, it is essential to maintain a federal workforce that is aware of, trained on, and educated about information security and assurance. P R IM employee awareness training topics cover a broad spectrum of IA education including:
      • Basic principles of IA
      • Information accessibility, handling, labeling, and storage protection
      • Physical, operational, and environmental information security protection
      • Privacy Act and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) protection
      • Common information security threats, vulnerabilities, and risks

    • Information Assurance Vulnerability Management (IAVM). IAVM employs positive control mechanisms to mitigate potentially critical software vulnerabilities, through the rapid development and dissemination of actions. P ?>

    German Shepherd Dog

    Generally considered dogdom s finest all-purpose workers, German Shepherd Dogs are large, agile, muscular dogs of noble spirit and high intelligence. For such deep-chested, solid dogs, they move quickly with great nimbleness afoot. The German Shepherd s natural gait is a free-and-easy trot, but when duty calls they can turn it up a notch or two and reach great speeds. Standing as high as 26 inches at the shoulder and built like a brick doghouse, the German Shepherd Dog when viewed in outline presents a picture of smooth, graceful curves rather than angles.

    General Appearance

    The first impression of a good German Shepherd Dog is that of a strong, agile, well muscled animal, alert and full of life. It is well balanced, with harmonious development of the forequarter and hindquarter. The dog is longer than tall, deep-bodied, and presents an outline of smooth curves rather than angles. It looks substantial and not spindly, giving the impression, both at rest and in motion, of muscular fitness and nimbleness without any look of clumsiness or soft living. The ideal dog is stamped with a look of quality and nobility – difficult to define, but unmistakable when present. Secondary sex characteristics are strongly marked, and every animal gives a definite impression of masculinity or femininity, according to its sex.

    Head

    The head is noble, cleanly chiseled, strong without coarseness, but above all not fine, and in proportion to the body. The head of the male is distinctly masculine, and that of the bitch distinctly feminine. The expression keen, intelligent and composed. Eyes of medium size, almond shaped, set a little obliquely and not protruding. The color is as dark as possible. Ears are moderately pointed, in proportion to the skull, open toward the front, and carried erect when at attention, the ideal carriage being one in which the center lines of the ears, viewed from the front, are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground.

    Body

    The neck is strong and muscular, clean-cut and relatively long, proportionate in size to the head and without loose folds of skin. When the dog is at attention or excited, the head is raised and the neck carried high; otherwise typical carriage of the head is forward rather than up and but little higher than the top of the shoulders, particularly in motion. Topline – The withers are higher than and sloping into the level back. The back is straight, very strongly developed without sag or roach, and relatively short. The whole structure of the body gives an impression of depth and solidity without bulkiness.

    Forequarters

    The shoulder blades are long and obliquely angled, laid on flat and not placed forward. The upper arm joins the shoulder blade at about a right angle. Both the upper arm and the shoulder blade are well muscled. The forelegs, viewed from all sides, are straight and the bone oval rather than round.

    Coat

    The ideal dog has a double coat of medium length. The outer coat should be as dense as possible, hair straight, harsh and lying close to the body. A slightly wavy outer coat, often of wiry texture, is permissible. The head, including the inner ear and foreface, and the legs and paws are covered with short hair, and the neck with longer and thicker hair. The rear of the forelegs and hind legs has somewhat longer hair extending to the pastern and hock, respectively.

    Hindquarters

    The whole assembly of the thigh, viewed from the side, is broad, with both upper and lower thigh well muscled, forming as nearly as possible a right angle. The upper thigh bone parallels the shoulder blade while the lower thigh bone parallels the upper arm. The metatarsus (the unit between the hock joint and the foot) is short, strong and tightly articulated.


    Opting Out of MSP Coverage – Province of British Columbia #opting #out


    #

    Opting Out of MSP Coverage

    Although enrolment in MSP is mandatory, it is possible for adults (but not minor children) to formally opt out of MSP coverage. B.C. residents who opt out are responsible for the payment of all medical, hospital and other health care services received during the 12 month opt out period.

    If you do not want to participate in British Columbia s provincial health care programs, you must complete and sign an Election to Opt Out statement and submit that statement to the Ministry of Health each year. Contact Health Insurance BC to obtain an Election to Opt Out form.

    You cannot opt out retroactively in order to eliminate an outstanding premium debt; any outstanding amount is a debt owed to the province and is collectable under law. If you elect to opt out, your statement is effective for a 12 month period starting on the first day of the month following the month in which your application to opt out is received and you cannot subsequently opt back in until after this 12 month period.

    Consequences of Opting Out

    If you choose to opt out, you do so with the knowledge that:

    • During the 12 month period for which you opt out, the Ministry of Health will not pay for any medical, hospital or other health care services, or for any items such as prescription drugs that might otherwise have been a benefit. This will be true regardless of whether the services/items are required on a routine or an emergency basis, due to illness or accident, and regardless of the cost involved.
    • You will be responsible for paying the entire cost of health care services and items you receive during the opted out period. You will not be able to opt back in, in the event of an unforeseen medical problem. Note: Hospital costs alone can exceed $1,000 per day.
    • You may find you are unable to obtain extended health care benefits or coverage for travel outside British Columbia.
    • You will be given a Notice of Exemption to show that you have opted out and must present that notice when medical, hospital and other health care services are accessed, and when purchasing items such as prescription drugs, that might otherwise have been a benefit.
    • An Election to Opt Out form must be completed each year if you choose to remain outside British Columbia s provincial health care programs.
    • You will not be required to pay any premiums for the period during which you are opted out.

    Important Information

    The following are sections of the Medicare Protection Act . which make provisions for residents to opt out.

    A person must be a resident of British Columbia to qualify for provincial health care benefits. The Medicare Protection Act defines a resident as a person who:

    1. is a citizen of Canada or is lawfully admitted to Canada for permanent residence,
    2. makes his or her home in British Columbia, and
    3. is physically present in British Columbia for
      1. at least six months in a calendar year, or
      2. a shorter prescribed period

    and includes a person who is deemed under the regulations to be a resident but does not include a tourist or visitor to British Columbia.

    Under Section 7(1) of the Act, every resident is required to enrol with the Medical Services Commission in the manner required by the Commission for enrolment as a beneficiary. However, Section 7(3) of the Act states that the need to apply for enrolment does not apply to an adult resident who submits a statement to the Commission in the manner required by the Commission stating that he or she does not want to be enrolled as a beneficiary.

    Similarly, a resident who is already enrolled, but who no longer wants to be a beneficiary, can submit a statement to the Commission stating that this is the case. Under Section 7.4(1)(a) the Commission may cancel the enrolment of a beneficiary effective on a date subsequent to the date of his or her application (to opt out of provincial health care benefits).

    Under no circumstances may a statement be submitted for the purpose of requesting that a child not be enrolled or that the enrolment of a child be cancelled.

    The Act also requires that, for a prescribed period (12 months) from the date that the Commission either receives a statement under Section 7(3) or cancels enrolment under Section 7.4(1)(a), the Commission must not enrol a person as a beneficiary.

    Top Online Information Technology Schools (IT)

    Information technology is one of the most versatile descriptions in the English language. Any device which allows for the mutual sharing of information falls under the canopy of IT. While the general public might think IT only refers to his or her phone or laptop, it actually even applies to the wireless towers which link their cell phone to the world and the data centers that form the backbone of the Internet.

    Because of this, the IT field is one of the fastest growing professions in the world today. Indeed, the Association for Computing Machinery has projected that jobs requiring a degree in computer science will increase by more than 150,000 by 2016 and many of these jobs will require a bachelor s degree in computer science or mathematics. Classes in computer science, networking and information security courses can be taken online. In fact, many schools offer distance learning opportunities for various IT or IS degree programs.

    As with most IT professions, certification is available for those who want to demonstrate their competence with specific programs or technology. Certification courses and exams are available online, though some require on-site testing and physical demonstrations. Accredited programs for a bachelor s degree in computer science or information systems award a bachelor s of science upon completion and are designed to take 3-to-4 years to complete.

    Post-graduates can find accredited online master’s degree programs in IT or computer science, as well as specialized MBA programs focusing on information services. These graduate degrees can further one s career or open the door to IT management.

    Below are some of the information technology focuses available from schools and colleges through SchoolsGalore.com:

    The profession of data administration is the study of how information is gathered, stored and retrieved to solve common business problems. Database administrators make sure analysts and employees can access data properly and that data is backed-up in a secure, reliable off-site location. DBAs also work with security analysts to ensure data is secure from unauthorized access and run tests to find security holes and fix them. They can also be employed by a wide variety of companies across many different markets. Because DBAs can work in specialty markets such as financial analysis and market research, knowledge in these markets may help expand employment opportunities.

    According to the 2012 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook (BLS.gov, 2012 ) most DBAs have bachelor s degrees in management information systems or computer science. DBAs also need to understand SQL, the most common database language, and the language s many variations. These courses, like much of the computer science discipline, can be completed online.

    For those with applicable work experience who are seeking certification, Microsoft has a detailed list of exams and their requirements, such as the Certified Database Administrator exam and SQL Server certification. IBM also offers certification for Linux, UNIX and windows databases. The Microsoft Certified IT Database Professional and Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008 certifications were listed as some of the top certifications by the TechRepublic for both the national median salary and demand.

    The BLS (BLS.gov, 2012 ) noted that the national median database administrator salary was $75,190 per year in May of 2011, and the profession was expected to experience an employment growth of up to 31 percent from 2010 to 2020 (BLS.gov, 2012 ). This growth is caused in part by the increase of data collection businesses, as well as the increasing need for database security.

    Information Systems Analysis and Management

    Training in information systems can teach you to regulate system input and output, develop company-wide backup and recovery plans and initiate computer system security protocols. You can learn to design computer databases according to the specific needs of a business or become a support specialist with the training to solve information systems problems as they arise.

    Information system analysts tend to have degrees in computer science, management information systems or other technical degrees, although those with degrees in liberal arts who also know programming languages have had success as well (BLS.gov, 2012 ). Not all degrees need to baccalaureate in caliber, information system analysts can have applicable work experience or certification coupled with an associate degree in a computer related discipline. According to O*NET Online. 41 percent of system analysts reported that that an associate degree was required for employment. Information system managers tend to have an MBA specializing in information security (BSL.gov, 2012 ).

    Cisco s Certified Network Professional certification and Microsoft s Certified Solution Developer credentials are two of the top credentials for information systems analysts according to [ci]channelinsider .

    With an increase in cloud computing, and increasing cyber threats, the BLS (BLS.gov, 2012 ), has projected the employment outlook for information systems managers may grow up to 18 percent from 2010 to 2020, and that, in May 2011, the national median salary for an information system manager was $118,010 per year (BLS.gov, 2012 ).

    Information Security Analysis and Management

    Learning to protect sensitive data from computer hackers and other unauthorized snoopers is an increasingly needed branch of online computer technology education. Also known as information assurance, the information security discipline is concerned with safeguarding the confidentiality of critical data from cybercriminals who attempt to breach security measures. This entails blocking intrusions which can infect information systems with worms, viruses, Trojan horses and other threats, implementing firewalls and virus protection software and sometimes, the IT security analyst s job is to break into a company s database and expose weaknesses.

    Called a penetration test, IS penetration analysts play offense in the computer security game. Credentials to be called an ethical hacker, or a white-hat hacker, are valued by IT pen-testing firms and the exams can be taken completely online (TechRepubilc). The International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, Inc. offers certification in Information Systems Security, which TechRepublic has listed as one of the top credentials to get as an IS analyst.

    Due to the nature of the profession, security analysts and manager must understand programming languages and have a degree in computer science, or a related profession, to keep up with emerging technologies. Increasingly, IT security analysts are required to have certification in preventative security technologies as well as offensive technologies (IISSCCI). Since online security breaches have become more frequent, courses and certifications can be taken entirely online. However, according to O*NET Online. only 11 percent of security analysts reported that certification and work experience were enough for employment, most considered a bachelor s degree the minimum.

    According to the BLS (BLS.gov, 2012 ) the national IS analyst median salary, based on a survey by Robert Half Technology, fell between $89,000 and $121,500 per year in 2012. The profession is expected to see an employment growth of up to 22 percent from 2010 to 2020 (BLS.gov, 2012 ) as the government, corporations and health care providers move to protect their sensitive data. Health care providers are especially likely to contribute to the IT security growth as they move to ensure their patients privacy.

    Learn more about accredited information technology programs from schools and colleges through SchoolsGalore.com:

    Online IT schools that are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology will have passed a strict grading system to earn accreditation. Just as important as accreditation are the opportunities for internships and computer science research. The Computing Community Consortium has a selection of computer science research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students. These computer science research programs supplement programs offered by selected colleges and give students real-world experience in the IT field.

    The following are Computerworld.com s top-three IT schools to watch. These schools work with IT companies to develop their curriculums and prepare their students for life outside of school.

    Business Information Guide

    PDF of step-by-step instructions on how to find HBR articles and case studies in Business Source Elite.

    Significant reporting and analysis of management topics appear in the periodical Harvard Business Review . Syracuse University Libraries offers affiliated students, staff, and faculty full-text access to HBR articles and case studies online via the database Business Source Elite (which indexes HBR content back to 1922, with full-text article coverage from 1985 thru present).

    Instructions for finding Harvard Business Review Articles Case Studies in Business Source Elite

    NOTE: The case studies in HBR are short (around four pages each) and should not be confused with the premium Harvard Business Publishing case studies noted on this page under Harvard Case Studies.

    Harvard Business Review 500
    At the request of Harvard Business Publishing, EBSCO has made 500 of the most popular Harvard Business Review articles read only by disabling the printing, saving, and persistent linking functionality for these articles in Business Source Elite. All Business Source Elite subscribers (including SU Libraries) were offered the option to restore this basic functionality by paying an additional annual premium fee. When Syracuse University Libraries requested a quote from EBSCO to restore full access to the 500 HBR articles, we were presented with a significant five figure amount. SU Libraries is disinclined to pursue the option to restore full access to the HBR 500 by paying this premium. Not only is the price per article exorbitant, but more importantly, agreeing to such a fee in order to restore access to content for which we have already paid. could set a terrible precedent.

    What matters and what we wish to emphasize is that, if HBP s new model catches on, having to essentially pay twice (or multiple times) for the same online content will erode the Libraries ability to provide other resources to the SU research community. In short, it s a zero-sum game when it comes to Libraries acquisitions that support research, and this development further adds to the costs of supporting scholarship. In declining to license with HBP under the proffered terms, the SU Libraries goal is to protect our ability to support research at SU to our utmost. While that may sound contradictory, at least in the short-term, in the long-term it most assuredly is not. To learn more about this, please see the blog post titled SU Libraries Stance on Restricted HBR Articles .

    Harvard Business Review in Print

    Print editions of the Harvard Business Review from 1922 to the present are available in Syracuse University Libraries’ print collection.

    Harvard Case Studies

    Harvard Business Publishing case studies cover all areas of management, business planning, marketing, accounting, finance, organizational behavior, entrepreneurship and more. The case studies range from 10 to 30 pages in length and often include an author provided guide, called a teaching note, on how to teach the case in the classroom.

    These case studies should not be confused with the short case studies published in the Harvard Business Review and available in full text via SU Libraries’ database Business Source Elite.

    Access to the Harvard Business Publishing case studies requires individual purchase of cases, including purchase of copyright permission in situations where multiple copies are desired. Harvard does not offer institutional subscriptions that permit an academic library to subscribe to these case studies.

    • Students and faculty visiting the HBP site can freely search and browse topics to identify case studies of interest
    • Access to the full-text case study PDFs requires individual purchase (often priced between $5 and $10 per case)
    • Options for student access to cases selected by faculty are available under a coursepack style access model (in some instances, students enrolled in such courses can receive purchase discounts on cases their faculty identify)
    • S.U. faculty interested in access (for themselves or their students) should explore detailed information about applying for Harvard Business Publishing’s Case Study “Educator Access”

    Why is Our Free VPS Hosting different than Shared and Dedicated?

    With our OHosti VPS, you get an entire server. This is optimal for people that have very high traffic to their websites or need to setup their server in a very specific way. Not everyone needs to have a fully dedicated web server however. If you’re just getting started with your website, you can save quite a bit of money if you get a free small portion of the server. Shared hosting is when you share a portion of the server with other users rather than rent an entire server to yourself. If you are considering a dedicated server and are unsure if it is right for you, perhaps you will need to get Free VPS Hosting.

    What is our free reseller hosting included?

    Everything you need to get started is included in our Reseller packages for a single, no price (free) :

    Free cPanel:
    Unlike other hosting companies, we never charge you or your clients a fee to manage the content and setup of their websites. cPanel makes that easy.

    Free Domains Resales:
    Not only can you sell web hosting, our Reseller Program also gives you the ability to sell domain names.

    IMAP, POP, SMTP Email:
    We offer a variety of email protocols, meaning your clients can check emails anywhere, on any device, easily.

    Free Backups and Installers:
    We include the Softaculous auto-installer totally Free, so you and your clients can set up websites at the click of a button, and we back your sites up every 24-36 hours, automatically.

    Free PCI Compliance. why becoming PCI Compliant matters

    PCI Free provides free compliance solutions and resources. Merchants and business owners can save time and money with free PCI compliant merchant solutions.

    If your business accepts or processes payment cards, it must comply with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards). All businesses and merchants that store, process and or transmit card holder information are now required to be PCI compliant.

    PCI DSS is a set of requirements for enhancing data security. This originally began as individual programs from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. To facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB aligned their individual policies to release the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards .

    Is PCI Compliance just another profit center for my merchant processor?

    Many believe that the new PCI compliance standards are little more than new revenue stream for merchant processors. Most small business owners and merchants have little information about the process and as a result wind up paying inflated PCI compliance fees. Merchant processors have been charging up to 300.00. Completing a form is frequently all that is required for many merchants to meet the standards, charging small businesses $300.00 for nothing more than completing a form is excessive, to say the least.

    Smart business owners become PCI Compliant

    In today’s economy, merchants and small business owners are required to thoroughly evaluate operating costs, merchant processing fees is an area frequently overlooked. Evaluating and comparing merchant processing solutions including fees for services such as ours for your business can be well worth the time it takes and result in considerable savings for your company.

    Careers in Hedge Funds: Your Guide to Exploring a Hedge Fund Job


    #

    Careers in Hedge Funds

    A hedge fund manager runs all or part of a hedge fund, with the goal of maximizing return. The hedge fund manager makes calls on a wide range of financial assets – from corporate bonds to stocks to currencies. This is one of the most “white knuckle” jobs in all of capitalism. The compensation for working in a hedge fund can be unusually high. It is not uncommon to see a person in their late 20s or early 30s pull down $5 million a year or more in one of the right positions at the big funds. But, of course, there are many others who make much less and and many more who fail altogether. All who participate in this industry take on high risk. It comes down to skill, timing and a little luck. In our recent salary review of starting compensation for recent graduates of the largest MBA programs, the highest average starting pay was in hedge funds (check out the salary ranges ).

    What is a hedge fund anyway? At its core, a hedge fund manages a pool of money for large investors. The fund compensates itself for that service by taking a hefty management fee (typically 2% of assets under management per year) and a carry (a percentage of returns over a benchmark) that is paid for performance.

    The typical carry is 20%. You can see the attraction of running a hedge fund. A hedge fund with $2 billion under management and a 2/20 compensation scheme would generate $40 million in management fees plus whatever is made on the carry.

    Unlike traditional money managers of mutual funds and closed ended funds, hedge fund managers routinely engage in short selling – that is betting that a security will decline in value. There are many flavors of hedge funds but the most common variety is a long/short equity fund. This would be a fund that will try to be market neutral and instead make an excess return (“alpha” as it is called) by being right on security selection – shorting stocks headed down and going long those headed up. Hedge funds can also use leverage to enhance return. This means borrowing against assets in the fund in order to buy more securities. This, of course, can enhance return on the upside and it is not uncommon to see hedge funds close down because they suffered negative returns that would cause no one to want to invest in the fund again.

    As we write this career description in late 2009, we are in a period of unusual turbulence in the hedge fund world. Due to the financial crisis many hedge funds have shut down and undoubtedly more closures are to come. But, like the landscape after a forest fire it turns out that many trees are still left standing and stronger. And, lots of new plants, bushes and trees are on the way. Hedge funds are here to stay and will, in fact, probably rise to new heights before long. The reason is that opportunities for alpha are out there and there is no better time than the present to exploit those opportunities.

    A hedge fund career is considered one of the most desirable paths in the finance field – although some working in these funds might wonder why. While the senior fund managers pull down a huge share of the compensation, a newly minted MBA does not start at a hedge fund managing his or her own pool of money. Depending on the size and structure of the hedge fund, there may be many (or few) other positions they might take, some of which can also eventually involve steep compensation. These include working at a hedge fund as a junior trader; strategist; analyst; quant; software developer; risk manager; and in various administrative roles. As in most financial institutions, the closer you are to the money, the more of it you get to take home. In other words, the jobs in which you can easily and directly measure the profit due to your performance – and for which that number is large – tend to be the most highly compensated.

    Interestingly, a review of the placement reports of a few schools like Chicago, Columbia, Harvard Business School and Stanford will show that there was a fair bit of MBA hiring into hedge funds in 2007 and 2008. This hiring will undoubtedly decline for the classes of 2009/2010 but there is still plenty of opportunity to be had.

    The typical hedge fund will have an internal recruiter or two or, if small, will use an external recruiter. Only the very biggest places will show up with any regularity for university recruiting – this might be seen with a Citadel or Maverick. This is a classic area in which to pursue a self directed job search. You need to get out and hit the pavement and meet people in the industry and look for openings. The openings aren’t necessarily scheduled on an annual cycle but tend to occur in real time when a fund is taking in more capital or experiencing strong returns. You’ll maximize your chances of finding a good position by pursuing funds that are doing well. To make the search process more interesting, there are thousands of hedge funds. This is a gigantic and somewhat disorganized industry. The result is an inefficient job market that you can exploit by putting in the time to make connections with potential hiring managers.

    The typical hedge fund manager comes out of the sell side – that is, an investment bank. Many persons who learn to trade or analyze securities in a research position on the sell side gravitate towards hedge fund positions in mid-career. And because hedge funds typically have no training programs they like to hire persons who have already learned the ropes of investments in an investment bank or another investment management firm. Key skills in demand are (1) high intelligence, (2) strong domain knowledge, (3) consistency and attention to detail, (4) deep investing and finance knowledge, (5) strong quantitative and legal skills and (6) the ability to dive deep on an investment story.

    There is high demand for individuals with specialized skills and advanced degrees – Ph.D’s that know currencies and macroeconomics; M.D.’s that know drugs and devices and can figure out which ones will succeed and which will fail; J.D.s that can tear apart credit agreements or bet on the outcome of merger deals in the antitrust agencies; mathematicians that can build quantitative trading algorithms etc. This is a field that attracts the best and the brightest. The career outcomes are highly variable but the ride can be exhilarating.

    Good luck as you contemplate a hedge fund career!
