Prepare an Annotated Bibliography for my masters Theology Course Old Testament Foundation. The title of my Essay/theme is Creation (Genesis) Step 1: Find a minimum of four academic sources. You may add more than six sources if you wish as long as all sources are scholarly. Do not use book reviews as sources. Step 2: For each source, write a summary and/or evaluation of the article in your own words. Each summary should be three to five sentences. The summary/evaluation for each source should identify the main point of the article. The summary needs to be your interaction and summary of the article. You will use this annotated bibliography to complete your Topic 5 outline and your Topic 7 benchmark assignment. Use the feedback from your instructor to revise your information, if necessary, for your Topic 5 outline and your Topic 7 benchmark assignment. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the Turabian Style Guide.

Medical facilities often have more patients waiting for organ transplants than there are available organs. Suppose you have been asked to write a computer program that selects which candidates should receive an available organ. What data would you want on file to be able to be used in your program, and what decisions would you make based on the data? What data do you think others might use that you would choose not to use?

Conduct a brief, preliminary review of your case study’s organization. This review should include business mission and general purpose of data in support of mission-critical information systems. Produce detailed data requirements to address the data needs of your organization. The following are criteria that you can use to organize your requirements: adaptability, business and organizational policies, change control demands, compatibility, completeness, consistency, currency, ease of use, evolution, extensibility, functional features, maintainability/manageability, performance, reliability, scalability, security, standards, support, testability, and ubiquity. You will produce requirements in at least five of the above criteria. Develop a detailed data model as an EER diagram for your case study. Your model will include entity types with attributes, primary keys, and foreign keys as needed, and pertinent relationships with cardinality and integrity constraints as needed. Your data model will also come with a brief description for each entity type, attribute and relationship. Make sure to satisfy yourself that your data model is reasonably complex as explained in the guidelines under Background of Enterprise Data: Selecting your Case Study above.

The Dulac Box plant produces wooden packaging boxes to be used in the local seafood industry. Current operations allow the company to make 500 boxes per day, in two 8-hour shifts (250 boxes per shift). The company has introduced some moderate changes in equipment, and conducted appropriate job training, so that production levels have risen to 300 boxes per shift. Labor costs average $10 per hour for each of the 5 full-time workers on each shift. Capital costs were previously $3000 per day, and rose to $3200 per day with the equipment modifications. Energy costs were unchanged by the modifications, at $400 per day. You have been asked to prepare a research paper that addresses the following elements: What is the firm’s multifactor productivity before and after the changes? Why is it important to be aware of the productivity changes? Analyze implications of changes in the parameters of the productivity calculation. Evaluate application of productivity concept in terms of the firm’s business operational goals and requirements. Present your findings as a 4-5 pages Word document formatted in APA style. Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:
