New Frontier of Cyberspace
5 pages in length. John Perry Barlow concludes that cyberspace is a new frontier where people may find a communal home. The reasons why Barlow initially believed this to be true have been somewhat modified from their original composition; however, Barlow still subscribes to the belief that cyberspace presents a certain – if not unorthodox – form of communal atmosphere. The writer discusses that while others acknowledge this seemingly inherent element of Internet relations, there is still some trepidation with regard to fully condoning Barlow's assertion.

The Computer In Criminalistics
3 pages in length. Staying one step ahead of the criminal has long been the first line of defense for law enforcement officers; when intelligence is gathered that precludes the ability for the offender to actually commit the crime, it serves to establish a pattern by which subsequent foils can also be utilized. However, technology has created quite a significant challenge for law enforcement to maintain that critical step ahead of criminal activity by virtue of the wholly comprehensive nature of cyber crime. As such, the entire criminal justice field has come to incorporate the very instrument that has facilitated so many crimes as part of its arsenal for thwarting those offenses and ultimately catching the lawbreakers. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
Computer-Based Instruction/Effect on Reading Achievement
A 33 page research paper that offers a review of literature addressing this topic.

However, the researcher also discusses literature that disagrees with this assessment and what this suggests as to future ramifications. Paper includes 1 page abstract and a 2 page table of contents. Bibliography lists 30 sources.

Women and Telecommunications II
In this well-argued 6 page paper, the point is made that tele-commuting does little more for women than keep them at home-- where they were a century ago. Women who work from their home office/computer are expected not only to handle corporate business from 9 - 5, they are also usually expected to take care of household affairs and even to raise children during the same time. This stands in contrast with men who cyber-commute but who are not expected to do anything other than work during the course of the business day. Various other relevant ethical issues are discussed and it is ultimately concluded that women have very little to gain in today's workplace. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
Digital And Psychological Profiling Of Cyber Crime
10 pages in length. Witnesses are often the single most important elements of securing a conviction or realizing an acquittal; without these observers to testify as to what they saw, heard or know, myriad court cases would either go unsolved or erroneously resolved. With the technological age, however, has come an entirely different type of witness who - by virtue of its unique position to collect incriminating data - does not have the capacity to lie. Computers have become some of the most critical tools law enforcement agencies have encountered, inasmuch as they provide a clear-cut path to criminals who use them as cyber weapons. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

Formation of Security Management Policy and Risk Management Effects
An 18 page paper discussing issues that need to be addressed when forming security risk management policy. The very essence of developing an effective security policy is dependent in great extent to the level of risk that exists. It has been demonstrated repeatedly that network and computer administrators face the threat of security breach each day. Building security is less predictable, particularly as groups of fanaticals place their energies into dreaming up increasingly grand plans for murdering innocents by the thousands.

eCommerce Content Management
33 pages in length. The ever-changing face of global e-commerce has called for greater efficiency when it comes to content management, a critical component of online retailers that helps maintain unstructured information found on any given Web site. This information exists in many digital forms, not the least of which include text documents, engineering drawings, XML, still images, audio/video files and many other types/formats. Modification is a primary consideration when addressing issues of content management, given the constant modification required for maintaining a current cyberlocation. This ability to constantly modify a Web site's content also carries with it a tremendous responsibility for doing so properly in relation to easy reorganization and updating. The reason why content management has become such a critical component to the success of e-commerce sites is, as Ko et al (2002) note, is because Internet/Web users are becoming more savvy with so many emerging resources. Bibliography lists 23 sources.
Restraint Uses in Psychiatric Nursing
A 4 page research paper that contrasts and compares position papers from the Internet sites of two psychiatric nursing organizations.

Music of Jamaica
(6 pp.) According to an internet site labeled
"fantasy tours," Jamaica is "eternal summer." So it
only makes sense that it would have "hot music."
But we also learn, "the island"
"has rugged mountain ranges, with Blue Mountain
Peak, the highest point, soaring 7,402 feet. It has
miles of white beaches, bordered by the blue
Caribbean. It has 120 rivers flowing from the
mountains to the coast. And it has great central
plains, fertile agricultural lands, towering
cliffs, magnificent waterfalls, and dense tropical
forests." What that tells us is our "hot music,"
still has a lot of varied cultural influences.

Content Regulations in Canada
A 6 page research paper that discusses Canadian regulations that govern music content over radio. For over thirty years, the Canadian government has required that a certain percentage of the music broadcast within the country should be of Canadian origin. This has proven to be a boon to the Canadian recording industry and Canadian artists. However, as these regulations were instituted prior to the development of the Internet, MP3s, satellite radio, etc., the question arises as to whether or not these regulations can continue to be relevant in the contemporary technologically oriented age. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
Various Formats of Digital Audio
A 4 page paper discussing .wav, MP3, MIDI and MOD music-storing formats. Digital music and other audio forms have benefited greatly from the innovations of recent years. After the advent of the Internet, audiophiles formerly started their music downloads before going to bed for the night, for the download time of only a few files would take hours to complete. The legal landscape has greatly changed as well; the involvement of more corporate entities in music and other audio file downloading has resulted in more options being available for today’s users.

Development in the Lifespan/Preschool & Elderly
An 11 page research study (including an abstract) that consists of a literature review of scholarly research and articles available online through the Internet databases. Through this investigation, the researcher endeavors to contrast and compare early childhood (preschoolers) to senior adults (age 60 or older) in regards to social, cognitive and physical developmental domains. The review encompasses 12 sources, which includes sources for establishing a theoretical base. The researcher analyzes this data in order to reach conclusions about the generations and concludes that while there are, of course, marked differences, the literature supports the study hypothesis that there are numerous common factors across the generations that support the conceptualization of the lifespan as a continuum and not a series of distinct, separate stages. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
Information and Knowledge in the Age of Cyberspace
6 pages in length. Knowledge and information have become synonymous in the cybernetic age, but not necessarily to the benefit of understanding. The power of this statement illustrates that while technology might improve man's progress in some areas, it also fails to do so in a holistic manner. The global community is bombarded with information from myriad sources unlike any other time in history, which would lead one to presume this generation to be more knowledgeable than their parents or grandparents. This is, indeed, a logical deduction to make considering this age group was quite literally brought up in the midst of the technological revolution. However, the barrage of information today's younger generation receives on a daily basis via the Internet, television, radio, newspapers and magazines serves more to clog the assimilation into understanding than to allow for it. In short, the information is dispensed but the receivers have not been adequately taught how to decipher and retain what is important. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
