Growing up in a small fishing town afforded me the opportunity to see water in a far different perspective than most. Our waterways acted as food source and livelihood while providing a venue for recreation and aesthetic enjoyment. Because of this, a deep respect for water and environment gripped me at an early age. My fascination with water continued to flourish as I grew and watched my hometown battle both natural and man-made disasters. I actively participated in coastal recovery efforts after many hurricanes and even the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Truly sobering moments come when one is standing center-stage of a disaster realizing how something as seemingly endless as water becomes so quickly scarce. These firsthand experiences piqued my initial interest in water resources and conservation sparking many questions about spatio-temporal patterns in the realm of ecosystem services. These personal factors were a major influence on my decision to apply for enrollment in the Earth Sciences Department at the
A&M is the state's first open foundation of advanced education. With an understudy collection of more than 59,000 and more than 5,200 sections of land on the College Station grounds, Texas A&M is additionally among the country's biggest colleges. Our roots, in any case, are much humbler: we owe our presence to the Morrill Act, endorsed by the United States Congress on July 2, 1862. This demonstration given to gift of open area to the states with the end goal of subsidizing advanced education whose "driving article should be, without barring other exploratory and traditional studies, and including military strategies, to instruct such branches of learning as are identified with horticulture and workman expressions."
Texas A&M is my home. I am 44 years old and I have been a full-time employee of Texas A&M University for almost 10 years. Although it has taken me a long time to get to the academic level that I am now at, I have never given up. Even though, they encouraged me every step of the way I was not guided very well academically by my parents. Neither of them attended college, so they were unable to provide advice. Now that I have gained the knowledge and know what I want, I will continue to work hard on my academic journey until it is complete.
People often say that when you do what you love, you never grow tired of it, and over the past four years at Texas State University I have found that to be very true. When I first came in as a freshman, I had no idea I would be ever applying for Graduate School. But as I went through the coursework and fell in love more and more with the topics that each class discussed, I finally decided that I wanted to apply and continue my education in the International Studies Program at Texas State.
As I am nearing the end of my undergraduate journey, I find that I am being asked more frequently as to what my plans are after graduation. When I respond that I am applying to graduate school and I am really excited about continuing my education, I often receive the same reaction: a look of utter confusion and the question “Why?” The answer is simple: I love learning. I think that knowledge gives one more power than possessing riches, fame, or an army ever could. To quote the Doctor in my favorite TV show, Doctor Who, he says “You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world! This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have – arm yourselves!” This quote illustrates exactly how I feel about possessing knowledge. There isn’t a problem in this world that a little bit of erudition can’t solve. However,
As an undergraduate student, I always had the idea of attending graduate school, but it almost felt like it was unattainable. I constantly doubted myself and thought that it would be a miracle if I were to finish my undergraduate career. However, with time I realized that living in doubt and in fear would prevent me from accomplishing my goals. I view graduate school as a reward. By attending graduate school, I would be proving to myself that I have the skills and determination to achieve anything that I set my mind to. It would be an impeccable experience to further my education, but the main reason I am pursing graduate school is for my parents. My parents were unfortunate not to receive an education, yet, they strongly admire the importance
I came across this internship while I was scrolling through my university’s career page and it immediately caught my eye. I had been looking to further my experience in editing and publishing and looking at this application seemed too good to be true. The M-School program is everything I was looking for in an internship because it values its interns unlike most internships. This drew me in right away and after I researched as much as I could about the program, I wanted in. I am currently in my second year of university at Trent University and I am studying English literature will study business in the next school year.
After graduating top 10% of class from a premiere engineering college in India, I worked as a business application developer for Oracle Corporation for five years. At Oracle I had ample opportunities to make healthy use of my problem solving and analytical skills while picking up new ones including business requirement analysis and implementation consulting. In addition, my role as an application developer exposed me to business process automation and business intelligence in workflows.
Oracle provides a flexible RDBMS called Oracle7. Using its features, you can store and manage data with all the advantages of a relational structure plus PL/SQL, an engine that provides you with the ability to store and execute program units. The server offers the options of retrieving data based on optimization techniques. It includes security features that control how a database is accessed and used. Other features include consistency and protection of data through locking mechanisms.
The following report was compiled after interviewing Kevin Vice, the facilities manager at Oracle America, Denver branch. Oracle America Inc. is a subsidiary of Oracle Corporation, which is a multinational computer technology corporation that designs, manufactures, markets and services network computing infrastructure solutions. The company is based in Redwood City California, with branch offices around the globe serving customers in 145 countries. The Colorado branch office has three locations, Denver, Broomfield and Colorado Springs.
I received my undergraduate degree from Amrita Vishwavidyapeetham University, where my key interests were subjects like Microcontrollers, Digital Systems, Control Systems, Analog Electronic and Drives. My degree program involved a mix of course work and lab work. While the concepts were taught in class, the complete
During my Bachelor’s, I enjoyed the curriculum immensely, and several of the subjects I was taught like Data Structures in which Linked List, which is a dynamic structure whose length can be increased or decreased at runtime, was my favourite topic. Java Programming won me over when I had to do a custom FTP server 8 years ago where the file transfer was controlled by the server instead of being controlled by client, Database Management System taught me about normalization of database a topic I enjoyed as it is the foundation of every database and without which the task become arduous and can lead to data loss. Object Oriented Systems concepts like polymorphism, inheritance, encapsulation and abstraction were fascinating. Finally, while studying Operating Systems I understood the importance of operating systems like Unix and Linux in today 's competitive world.
As the volume of data has exploded, we have invented a new storage medium. Moreover, data is being created by everyone and everything Due to the introduction of the various social media websites which allows users to upload the data in any format. The volume of the data has increased to the level which is hard to manage. Even with the introduction of the new disk technologies, the limitation to store data in the single disk can be maximum to few terabytes; so to process the petabytes or exabytes of the data, large amount of the disks and processor are required to work in parallel.
Today’s high-end computing systems are generating datasets that are increasing in both complexities and volume. Increasing demands form the clients for a more reliable and resilient systems are at its peak. Metadata and file movement between the nodes, I/O throughput, cost cutting of hardwares in extreme scale system, efficiency
