Implementing a Data Warehouse in a Kar Dealer Network - Data warehouse architecture Goldfarelli & Rizzi (2009) describe two classifications of a data warehouse architecture. The first classification describes the physical separation of the data warehouse's architectural layers. The second classification is based on the methods devised by Inmon and Kimball.

The advantage of the hub-and-spoke approach is data integration versus the ease of development and a lower cost of the federated approach (Hwang & Cappel, 2002)....   [tags: hub-and-spoke, top-down, warehouse]

Film Noir: A Style Spanning Genres - The classification and cataloging of items seem to fulfill a basic need in human beings, whether it is vegetable, mineral or animal. It seems that this basic need to analyze and categorize items applies also to objets d’art, including film – and the recognition or dismissal of film noir as a genre has been argued since the term was coined. While the term itself is valid, film noir as a genre is a misnomer. More properly, film noir should be considered a style unto itself, but definitively not genre, defined by the very definitions of the words “style” and “genre”....   [tags: Film]

The Plausibility of Analytic Functionalism - The tenets of analytic functionalism worked well at attempting to align the philosophies of behaviorism and the identity theory, and though there are many objections to the theory’s method of formulaic definition of mental states, I find that analytic functionalism is a plausible theory that describes the mind. I find that in determining a means in which to define mental states, analytic functionalism demonstrates an ontological method in which one can characterize the mind using statements that can endure more rigor than “folk psychology” alone....   [tags: Philosophy]

Race: Social Categorization, Not Biological - The English term ‘race’ is believed to originate from the Spanish word raza, which means ‘breed’ or ‘stock’ (Race). People use race to define other groups, this separation of groups is based largely on physical features.

Scientifically speaking, there is more variation between single local groups than there is between two large, global groups; the human variation is constantly altering (Lewontin)....   [tags: racial groups, race, stereotypes]

Politicians Need to Listen to the People and Legalized Marijuana - While the majority of American citizens believe that the drug policies in this country need to be changed, the politicians of America refuse to recognize the necessity for change. The war on drugs has clearly been lost and while Americans are for the most part ready to admit this defeat, their elected leaders are unfortunately unwilling to do so. This difference of opinions, more so than with any other political issue, marks politician’s greatest inconsistency with the desires of the people.

In this paper, we present a non-negative patch alignment framework (NPAF) to unify these NMF based dimension reduction algorithms....   [tags: Research Analysis ] 2639 words

In the early 1900s, medical usage of marijuana began to decline with the advent of alternative drugs. Injectable opiates and synthetic drugs such as aspirin and barbiturates began to replace marijuana as the physician's drug of choice in the twentieth-century, as their results proved to be more consistent than the sometimes erratic effects of the hard-to-dose potencies of marijuana (Grinspoon)....   [tags: Weed Drugs Marijuana Essays]
