important distinction must be made between the media and the scientific findings of credible organizations and individuals. Although the popular press has a larger audience, findings from sound science are less likely to be construed in a distorted way. A significant example of this statement is embodied by a recent study on the relationship between information technology and creativity. This paper serves to discuss and analyze both a research article on the study and an article written by USA Today

For my discussion paper this week I chose to look at narcissism and the recent advent of a 1 question scale to determine narcissism. In particular I will look at how this study relates to concepts discussed in Chapter 2 of our readings. The scale and its development is outlined in Development and Validation of the Single Item Narcissism Scale. My interest in this subject is sparked by interactions with a family member growing up, who among other things, could be construed as highly narcissistic.

In this paper, I will determine the extent of influence that video games have had upon an individual’s decision to take such actions and what should be done to avoid such occurrences in the future. Looking into the world of video games I will explore research that has indicated the exposure to video games directly results in aggression or violent acts.
Dependent variables 1- working capital requirement ( WCR ) The study observes the determinants of the working capital requirements of an enterprise.

Working capital requirements are deflated by total assets to control

When I watch basketball on television, it is a common occurrence to have an announcer state that some player has the hot-hand. This raises the question: Are Bernoulli trials an adequate model for the outcomes of successive shots in basketball? This paper addresses this question in a controlled (practice) setting. A large simulation study examines the power of the tests that have appeared in the literature as well as tests motivated by the work of Larkey, Smith, and Kadane (LSK). Three test
objective of this study is to evaluate audit tenure, industry specialization, and firm size and its correlation to financial restatements. A client’s restatements suggest low audit quality because it indicates that the client’s financial statements are not in line with GAAP. I analyzed a sample of 250 firm-year restatements from public companies during 2008 to 2012. I gathered the data using COMPUSTAT and AuditAnalytics. For my results, I have found that auditor tenure has a negative correlation with financial
