Sorry, i have no idea what you mean by a “national service”

*(optional) If yes what kind service it was?
*(optional) If yes how did they helped you?

In what ways have the internet helped you in your everyday life?
My friends now live all over the US, and the world. It is much easier to keep in touch by email than by letters or by phone. Also, i really enjoy researching things on the net.

Do you think that social services through the internet can help citizens?

Yes, if they function well, and take into account that the net interface must be allowed for

Do you think that the Internet can *interfere* in the relationship between people?

Yes, but i think this is not generally a problem.

Do you think that there should be safety valves according to the age or the time that someone is using the internet in order to avoid the over disposal and specifically the addition of the internet user?

Not really.
I think this should mostly be an area where the user has full control. I do approve of some sites requiring that you be 18 or even 21 to use their services.

Do you think that the advantages that the internet offers outcome the disadvantages in psychological level?
Absolutely

The FBI team writes this to inform you that your buyer Dr. Trump. who complained to us bitterly over an item he paid you for, which is “HTC Tilt 8925 for AT&T” through PayPal online money order and got doing business with you through Craigslist.org, and we also interviewed him to believe that what he said is True concerning the allegations that you scammed him and double crossed him out of his money, which he sent to your PayPal account and also shows to us the proof of the payment made by him and since then the Report was so because he didn’t want to Continue with it maybe. And again the PayPal online money order also sent a report to us about you Providing their own Evidence that you wanted to use their service to Scam others and to rip people off out of their Money. But this will never happen since it has been reported to us. We’re hereby write to inform you that the Merchandise must be shipped as they told you to it’s destination being West Africa/Nigeria to your buyer’s name and Information without any arguement as you both was agreed before this problem came up, failure to do that will attract the real attention of the FBI team in East Harlem the City of New York to track you down because every information about you is with us and we also have your profile in our Data/Computer. So we strongly advice you to ship the Merchandise back to his son’s to the Information which was given to you by him. The FBI’s cyber mission is four-fold: first and foremost, to stop those behind the most serious computer intrusions and the spread of malicious code; second, to identify and thwart online predators who use the Internet to meet and exploit others through internet business and online transactions. Statement report made by the PayPal Team will be sent to you shortly.
OMG THANKS. BUT I FEEL KIND OF SCARED STILL.

richmama answers:

There is nothing this person can do to you as he didn’t pay you and thus the transaction didn’t go through. And you have the right to make whatever terms-of-sale you deem appropriate (ie. No checks, no shipping, etc.). He is only bluffing and trying to force you into giving him something for nothing.

So email him back and tell him it is a crime to misrepresent oneself as a police officer or to misrepresent a communication as being one from a police officer. And then tell him that you forwarded HIS communications to the FBI and he is free to do likewise with your communications.

And then contact PayPal and let them know what is happening to you. Don’t contact this person anymore unless PayPal or a police officer instructs you to. And contact your local police department as I believe what this man is doing is a crime. They will give you further instructions. And as you are a minor, you will need a parent to go with you.

Also, you were wise not to give out your address or your phone number. Never do that and NEVER accept a check (they could be fake). Oh, and never meet any person (including this one) by yourself. Always have a parent with you for your personal safety. There are some very bad people out there who might prefer you to the product you are selling so don’t put yourself in harm’s way.

One last thing. You must tell your parents what happened.

Good luck!

Susan asks…

I want to convince my parents to let me have a Facebook. Will this work?

Ok, so I really want a Facebook. Why? It’s summer. I get bored and lonely. It’s a good way to keep in touch with friends. But I’m not allowed. I always get good grades, and never get in trouble. But I’m still not allowed. I know the dangers of the internet. I know I can handle it maturely, keep my profile private, not add anyone I don’t know in person, don’t give away personal information. But my parents don’t seem to think so. I just wish they would give me a chance. I’ve never done anything to make them think I’m not responsible enough.

So, I came up with an idea to prove(or at least try to prove) that I’m responsible enough. I want to know what your feedback is. Will it work? What should I include? Any suggestions? Ideas?

So here it is: I was thinking of writing a really long and impressive report type thing, to prove I know everything there is to know about internet safety. I will explain to them what not to do on the internet, what I will do on the internet to keep me safe, and reasons why I want a Facebook. I will tell them I won’t ever give out my password to anyone(besides them). I’ll tell them they can log in and check up on my account anytime they want. They can add me as a friend, and watch what I post. If they ever find anything bad, then bam. I’ll be willing to lose my Facebook. I just want to prove I am responsible enough- but how can I do that if I don’t have any responsibilities? I’ll go in to detail on the subjects, do my research, and give them statistics. It will be really long and impressive.

But before I do all that, and spend like a week making it, I want to make sure it will work. If you were a parent, would you accept it? Sorry it’s kind of long. Let me know what you think :)

richmama answers:

That might work, but a few things I would recommend you do:

1. Make sure at least one of your parents are on Facebook. Since my mom is on, it helped me get a Facebook account.

2. Find online articles about Facebook (i.e. Commonsensemedia.org and facebookforparents.org) that promote the good and bad.

3. Depending on your browser, you can block ads that can be porn.

Remember to add everything to your report as well as implementing sideshows, music, etc. Also, try to take on more responsibilities and use that to make a “child report” to show off good grades, detention records, responsibilities, etc.

Hope this helps! :)

Sandra asks…

Statistics, question please help.?

CASE: SHELL ATTEMPTS TO RETURN TO PREMIERE STATUS

The Shell Oil Company, which began about 1912, had been for decades a household name as a quality oil company in the United States. However, by the late 1970s much of its prestige as a premiere company had disappeared. How could Shell regain its high status?
In the 1990s, Shell undertook an extensive research effort to find out what it needed to do to improve its image. As a first step, Shell hired Responsive Research and the Opinion Research Corporation to conduct a series of focus groups and personal interviews among various segments of the population. Included in these were youths, legislators, academics, and present and past employees of Shell. The researchers learned that people believe that top companies are integral parts of the communities in which the companies are located rather than separate entities. These studies and others led to the development of materials that Shell used to explain their core values to the general public.
Next, PERT Survey Research ran a large quantitative study to determine which values were best received by the target audience. Social issues emerged as the theme with the most support. During the next few months, the advertising agency of Ogilvy & Mather, hired by Shell, developed several campaigns with social themes. Two market research companies were hired to evaluate the receptiveness of the various campaigns. The result was the “Count on Shell” campaign, which featured safety messages with useful information about what to do in various dangerous situations.
A public “Count on Shell” campaign was launched in February 1998 and met with considerable success: the ability to recall Shell advertising jumped from 20% to 32% among opinion influencer’s; more than 1million copies of Shell’s free safety brochures were distributed and activity on Shell’s Internet “Count on Shell” site remains extremely strong. By promoting itself as a reliable company that cares, Shell seems to be regaining its premiere status.
Today, Shell continues its efforts to be “community friendly.” United Way of America announced Shell Oil Company as one of its three Spirit of America Summit Award winners for 2002 and commended the company for its outstanding volunteer and corporate contributions programs. Several Shell employees were recognized by the Houston Minority Business Council for their continued efforts to provide windows of opportunity for minority business owners and strengthen Shell’s commitment to supplier diversity. Shell employees and retires give back to their communities through such Shell-sponsored activities as America’s WETLAND campaign, Shell’s Workforce Development Initiative, and other community/quality of life and environmental projects. Shell is also a strong supporter of the Points of Light Foundation, which strives to engage people more effectively in volunteer community service.

Discussion:
1. Suppose you were asked to develop a sampling plan to determine what a “premiere company” is to the general public. What sampling plan would you use? What is the target population? What would you use for a frame? Which of the four types of random sampling discussed in this chapter would you use? Could you use a combination of two or more of the types (two-stage-sampling)? If so, how?

2. It appears that at least one of the research companies hired by Shell used some stratification in their sampling. What are some of the variables on which they are stratified? If you were truly interested in ascertaining opinions from a variety of segments of the population which regard to opinions on “premiere” companies or about Shell, what strata might make sense? Name at least five and justify why you would include them.

richmama answers:

There is so much information missing that it is impossible to answer these question. Which works out well since this was so boring it put me to sleep. I can see why you don’t want to do it yourself. Getting others to do it for you will be good practice for later in life, when you call back orders to the cook.

I’m going to shell in a handbasket for this.
