    few challenging aspects of social media but when it all comes together, I would say the biggest challenge is competition. As positive as social media is, it is constantly creating competition between people. One example is that social media puts pressure on people for the way they look. Social media has put this ideal image of people and people are always trying to live up to this image, which can create personal issues.

I really enjoyed the content in the class every week. Most people don’t look forward to doing homework assignments but with…

    Moving Target Defense The current cybersecurity environment is based around a static defense that has been employed for the past few years to protect information systems (See Figure 6). Unfortunately, this cybersecurity paradigm is not effective against current and future cyber threats. According to Zheng (2014), the weakness of this cybersecurity approach is its passive and reactive nature towards safeguarding information systems. Additionally, this method also allows threat actors the time…

    In the academic library that I chose to examine, finding the reference desk is no easy task for the unfamiliar patron. With three major entrances and six floors to navigate, this library is an epitome of what most libraries would strive to have: boundless space for patrons and a vast, growing collection. The patron, however, could easily take one glance at this gargantuan building and easily become overwhelmed, despite the services that this one building contains, such as being combined with…
