Discuss techniques for storing JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) documents in the database engine in relation to the corresponding techniques for XML.


A Trevor Stoutt

A technique for storing JSON in the database engine is to use a NoSQL database, such as MongoDB, that is specifically designed to store JSON data. NoSQL databases allow for flexible and scalable storage of JSON documents and provide fast query performance for JSON data.

Another method for storing JSON in the database engine is to use a relational database, such as MySQL, and store the JSON data as text or binary data. This method is useful for applications that need to integrate with existing relational databases. However, it can be more difficult to query JSON data stored in a relational database, as it requires parsing the JSON data (n.d.).

JSON and XML have some similarities being that both languages can be parsed, self-describing, and are hierarchical when it comes to the data values. JSON is unlike XML because it is shorter, easier to write, and is not as difficult to parse. Parsing is the biggest advantage that JSON has over XML since XML has to be parsed with the XML parser while JSON can be parsed with standard JavaScript functions (n.d.).

B Nicole Snipes

When it comes to the techniques of storing between (JSON) which is JavaScript Object Notation and XML for a database there are a lot of differences concerning corresponding techniques between the two database engines. JSON or JavaScript Object Notation is a lightweight data-interchange format with independent language, which is based on JavaScript programming language and is amazingly easy to understand and generate. While XML or Extensible Markup Language is designed to carry data and not display data, it is a markup language that defines a certain set of rules for encoding documents. The very vast difference between the two databases is that one is JavaScript Object Notation, and the other is Extensible markup language. Also, one derives from JavaScript while the other is from SGML, representing objects while the other uses tag’s structure to represent data items. Another significant difference is that JSON is less secure while XML is more secure than JSON which can also support comments while JSON can’t (GeeksforGeeks, 2019).

C Joshua Victor

Some of the techniques for storing JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) documents in the database engine in relation to the corresponding techniques for XML include:

· JSON documents can be stored in a database as a text or varchar data type. This is similar to how XML documents can be stored as a text or CLOB data type. However, storing JSON as a text or varchar data type may limit the ability to search or query the data effectively, as the database engine cannot directly process the JSON document’s structure.

· Some database engines support JSON-specific data types, such as JSON or JSONB in PostgreSQL, which allow the database engine to parse the JSON document’s structure and store it more efficiently. This is similar to using XML-specific data types, such as XMLType in Oracle, which allows for more efficient storage and processing of XML documents.

· Some database engines allow JSON documents to be stored as a binary format. This approach enables faster querying and indexing of the JSON documents, and it is similar to the binary storage approach used for XML documents in some databases, such as the XML datatype in Microsoft SQL Server.

· Some database engines, such as PostgreSQL, allow for the creation of hybrid data models that combine relational data with JSON documents. This approach is useful when you need to store structured data that has some variability or when you want to take advantage of the JSON document’s flexible structure.

care-based ethics and rights theory in offer moral remedies

Both care-based ethics and rights theory offer moral remedies for pressing societal problems, including drug addiction, lack of access to healthcare, and poverty. However, they approach the problems from different angles.

Relationships and ties between individuals are prioritized in care-based ethics, and the significance of caring for others is emphasized. Care-based ethics strongly emphasize helping those in need and giving them the support they need to succeed in poverty. This could entail developing community initiatives that give people in need access to food, shelter, and education and provide them with emotional and psychological assistance.

The focus of rights theory, on the other hand, is on moral and personal entitlements. According to rights theory, everyone has the right to a particular standard of living in poverty, and society must ensure that these rights are upheld. In order to achieve this, government policies that provide access to necessities like food and shelter, as well as the protection of the rights of vulnerable groups, need to be developed.

Care-based ethics would place a higher priority on harm reduction and helping those who are battling addiction when it comes to drug usage. This may entail developing programs that provide counseling, treatment, and rehabilitation and decriminalizing drug use to lessen the stigma attached to addiction.

Similarly, in the case of a lack of healthcare, care-based ethics would prioritize ensuring that everyone, regardless of socioeconomic level, has access to inexpensive, high-quality healthcare. This could entail establishing programs for universal healthcare, making preventative care available, and funding community health initiatives.

Care-based ethics and the rights theory provide morally sound solutions to these societal problems, but they do so from various angles. While rights philosophy emphasizes individual entitlements, care-based ethics emphasize relationships and ties. The ideal strategy will ultimately depend on the particular circumstances and requirements of the parties concerned.

Regarding my strategy, rights theory, and care-based ethics can help solve societal concerns. We can build more just and equitable communities that meet the needs of every person by putting care and empathy first. However, I often favor care-based ethics since I consider connections and relationships essential for a happy and prosperous community.

utilizing the balanced scorecard


• Any experience you have with utilizing the balanced scorecard and strategy map

My only experience with the balanced scorecard is learning about it and its importance in my business strategy class. Dr. Magnini walked through each section and discussed how we could apply it to different companies.

• Ways in which you may be able to utilize managerial accounting and the balanced scorecard or strategy map in your field

The balanced scorecard is a performance measurement framework that can help analyze financial and non-financial indicators. We use four perspectives from the company’s goals to find growth and increase profits. First, we have the financial perspective to improve productivity and increase revenue. Tracking my company’s financial performance can help me in marketing because we need to understand where and why costs need to decrease and which products we should advertise to our target market based on sales. Then the customer’s perspective helps us better our relationship and understand our value propositions. For example, if we have issues with customer loyalty, we have marketing strategies to persuade them to repurchase our products or stay with our company. Our value proposition communicates what we offer our customers and how we differ. In marketing classes, we learn to persuade our customers that we are different, not better than our competitors. Next, the process perspective is how we execute the strategy and if we are efficient. Various processes depend on your position in marketing, but if our customer management could be more efficient, we can improve. Lastly, we have the learning and growth perspective to enhance our human resources, technology, and culture. All of these objectives affect marketing teams. For instance, if the company’s culture is positive, it provides a comfortable work environment of efficiency. Then the strategy map visualizes the cause-and-effect relationships between each perspective’s objectives. Using the framework and strategy map can improve each perspective, increasing profits and leading to many successful outcomes. Many managerial accounting modules help us understand how to find the issues and fix them when measuring our performance. In marketing, we are constantly completing analyses and researching ways to improve. Therefore, we can succeed if we combine our marketing strategies with managerial accounting knowledge.



Any experience you have with utilizing the balanced scorecard and strategy map?



From a financial perspective, the organization I work for looks at our insurance case mix for revenue reimbursement purposes. For example, Medicare, Medicaid, Commercial, and Self-pay. Each payer source reimburses at a different rate for the same services.

Customer perspective: scorecards of patient demographics are created to give insight into the patient population’s income, zip codes within a 25-mile radius from the hospital, and age range. These patients are most likely the individuals utilizing our services frequently. We will also provide a report that provides individuals who utilize our services whose zip codes exceed the 25-mile radius to determine customer growth. A survey is provided randomly to patients that had a recent acute hospitalization. The discharging unit gets the score from the survey.

Process perspective: every department within the hospital setting has processes that are measured to meet the hospital’s mission and goals. Physicians must meet treatment plan standards based on a patient’s diagnosis or symptoms without causing harm. These sets of treatment standards provide an average timeframe a person should be in the hospital. For example, for patients hospitalized with pneumonia, the standard is 3 days length of stay. Length of stay is a metric all departments providing services to a patient are held to or play a significant role. Case management is measured on how long it takes to successfully discharge a place to the next level of care at home with resources after a discharge order is placed by the physician.


Ways in which you may be able to utilize managerial accounting and the balanced scorecard or strategy map in your field.

We utilize managerial accounting for a patient length of stay in the hospital. Loss of revenue is associated with patients staying past the recommended length of stay. The example given previously was 3 days stay for pneumonia. The insurance company will only pay for a pneumonia diagnosis for 3 days unless the patient develops complications despite the treatment plan.

Quality measurements are evaluated based on hospital-acquired infections. This is another financial risk factor for insurance companies. If a patient was hospitalized due to a fall that results in a hip fracture, has the surgery then develops COVID, the insurance most likely only covers the surgery and not the COVID treatment. This is considered a hospital-acquired infection.

Financial data is shared with staff to provide a summary of financial growth and revenue loss in specific service lines. The financial reports are compared to previous years. I enjoy seeing the financial reports that inform us of how we are doing as an organization. As a leader, I use financial reports to help decide where to decrease spending. For example, hiring full-time nurses is extremely cheaper than hiring travel nurses. Travel nurses under a 3-month contract hourly rate can range from $150 to $250 per hour.





• Any experience you have with utilizing the balanced scorecard and strategy map

I have not developed and used the balance scorecard in my current role as an analyst or in my previous role as a logistics management specialist with the government. I have however used bits and pieces of the balance scorecard approach to developing goals and strategies within my team to achieve goals on specific taskers. The same is true with a strategy map, I have never created a full strategy map across all four perspectives of my organization, but I have used a similar process within my analyst team to clearly lay out the strategic objectives of our team and how they relate to the bureau.

• Ways in which you may be able to utilize managerial accounting and the balanced scorecard or strategy map in your field

I think that managerial accounting through the balance score card and strategy map could be used in my field in a few ways. To begin with my analyst team provides our bureau with threat analysis from around the world in relation to our bureau’s missions and assets. A balance scorecard would allow our team to develop an internal strategy map linking our team’s objectives through all four BSC perspectives. In the case of our analyst team objectives at the learning and growth perspective would be “develop employee process improvement on threat collection.” From that perspective objective we would then link it to the process perspective of “reduce process time of report generation” and “improve report quality”. That can then be linked to the customer perspective by “delivering products on time” “offer best quality threat reporting” which would lead to customer retention from bureau leadership and interagency partners. That would then link to the final objective in the financial perspective which would be “increase the value of the bureau within the State Department.” We could then define units of measure for each perspective stage that show how effectively we are meeting our objectives. This could then be stored in a repository to be shared with our bureau leadership when asked about our team’s value added or during Inspector General Audits of our practices. This could also be used to provide justification for the procurement of analysis software contracts by illustrating how our team has mapped and accomplished objectives or by showing that the new contracts would allow our team to accomplish stated objectives.

In this worksheet, the Budget amount is calculated from the Labor, Materials, and Fixed Costs columns. After defining your budget, you can hide these columns, or you could hide just the unused columns.
When adding new rows, copy an existing row and insert the copied row, so that the formulas in the grey WBS, Budget, and Under(Over) columns are copied. You can also copy a row from the list of template rows at the bottom of the worksheet.
Each WBS level in column A (1, 1.1, 1.1.1, etc.) uses a different formula. To change the WBS level for a task, you can copy and paste the cell containing the formula that you need from the list of template rows at the bottom of the worksheet. The indent for the Task column can be changed via cell formatting.
The Level 1 categories contain SUM() formulas in the Budget and Actual columns that should be verified for accuracy after inserting new rows. Check these formulas to ensure that the SUM() formula is referencing the correct range of cells.
Any time you add or remove a Level 1 category, you will need to update the formulas for the Total section at the top of the worksheet, to make sure that the Total correctly sums the correct cells.
After adding new categories, you may need to redefine the print area to include the new rows. In Excel 2003, go to File > Print Area > Set Print Area. In Excel 2010 go to Page Layout > Print Area > Set Print Area.
If you see “#####” in a cell, it means you need to widen the column to see the value.

Art History

10-15 slide power point

Your objec6ve for your presenta6on is to expand the understanding of 20th century art by selec6ng an art object that is contemporaneous with the works and the period of Modernisms Of the Americas

Art object chosen – Jean Carlu, America’s Answer! Produc6on, (1942),

In order to deliver a successful presenta6on you will need to be able in your presenta6on to explain to the class why you believe i6s important for them to understand the work you selected in the context of the day’s theme ( Modernisms of the Americas )

For your presenta6on, you will for no less than ten and no more than twelve minutes lead applying the knowledge you have gained in researching your art object towards visual analysis of the work ( Jean Carlu, Americas Answer! Produc6on, 1942 ) , and expand upon the object’s social, historical, and material contexts. You should design a lesson that provides ample opportuni6es for open-ended, well-craRed ques6ons and other forms of engagement for your classmates; you shouldn’t simply lecture straight through.

1. What is important for you to understand about this part of the world, this point in 6me, and this work of art, and how will you help them to learn? For example, will you review key concepts, create comparisons to other works we will discuss that day, use the work to introduce the class to a new style or movement, or introduce new ideas and issues that complement the day’s assigned reading?

2. How will you facilitate par6cipa6on amongst your peers? How will you create opportuni6es for class par6cipa6on in your presenta6on? What are some ways that you can include them through visual analysis, open-ended ques6ons, or other means of engagement?

Touchstone 4: Analyzing Your Personal Finances

SCENARIO: Three months have passed since you created your first financial plan (i.e., the Unit 2 Touchstone). In that time, your budget has gone through some changes. The good news is that your income has increased because of your strong performance at work. However, health care and miscellaneous costs have gone up along with your earnings. You will need to reallocate your monthly budget based on these changes to see how you’re progressing toward your original savings goal.

While you appreciate numbers and figures, you also know that a strong financial analysis needs visual information. As part of your progress check, you’ve committed to creating a set of graphs that you can share with your financial advisor.

ASSIGNMENT: This assignment has two parts. In part 1, you will analyze personal finance data based on the scenario described above. You’ll use your problem solving and agility skills to balance three monthly budgets, and you’ll use your technology skill to graph the spending allocations in each of them. Finally, you’ll sharpen all three skills as you calculate and graph the progress you’re making toward your original savings goal.

In part 2, you will answer reflection questions about the decisions you made, identify how to create more savings opportunities, and make predictions about life and economic impacts that could affect the future of your plan.

For this assignment, you will:

  • Create three monthly budgets and perform a personal financial analysis using Microsoft Excel.
  • Summarize changes in expenditures between budgets.
  • Show the results of the analysis using appropriate graphs in Excel.
  • Explain how the graph types you have selected will help your financial advisor understand the data.
  • Discuss the results of the financial analysis including savings achievements, future budget modifications, and life impacts that could derail the budget in the coming year.
  • Reflect on what the analysis might reasonably look like in one year, accounting for economic factors such as inflation and the consumer price index.


A. Assignment Guidelines

DIRECTIONS: Refer to the lists below throughout the assignment. Do not submit your Touchstone until it meets these guidelines.

1. Analyzing Your Personal Finances

❒ Have you populated the tables for Month 1, Month 2, and Month 3 with your budgeting information?❒ Have you verified that all amounts are displayed on a monthly (not annual) basis?❒ Have you verified that the sum of your expenditures (including savings) equals your employment income?❒ Have you populated the Savings Progress table?❒ Have you selected the most effective graph type for each of your data sets?❒ Have you left all predetermined formulas intact?

2. Reflection Questions

❒ Have you directly answered each question that was asked?❒ Have you provided sufficient evidence to support each of your answers?❒ Have you made clear and logical connections between your conclusions and the data used in the financial analysis?❒ Have you leveraged content from the course tutorials about economic factors?❒ Have you included sufficient detail in your answers?

SCENARIO: Your monthly budget is going through some changes over the next three months. The good news is that your income has increased because of your strong performance at work. However, health care and miscellaneous costs have also gone up. You will need to reallocate your monthly budget based on these changes. The changes are represented by embedded formulas in the MONTHLY BUDGET tables above, located inside the shaded cells. QUESTION 1: In step 4 and step 6, you created several graphs. Explain the reasons for the graph types that you selected. How will the graphs you created help readers understand the financial data? Your Answer (150 words or less):
STEP 1: Enter the previous values you obtained from the Unit 2 Touchstone into the MONTH 1 BUDGET. Important: Before you do, be sure to divide each dollar amount by 12. Remember, the Unit 2 Touchstone was an annual basis while this Touchstone is a monthly basis. If you no longer have the previous values, create new ones. Remember to start by entering your income and be sure the MONTH 1 BUDGET balances. QUESTION 2: Explain the results of your financial analysis in steps 1-6 in terms of the following: • Overall progress toward your savings goals • Changes you might make to the budget to improve progress in the coming months • Economic or life impacts that may affect your budget in the future Your Answer (150 words or less):
STEP 2: Now create your MONTH 2 BUDGET and your MONTH 3 BUDGET above. Do not change the predetermined costs for Health Care in the second month or Miscellaneous in the third month. Do not modify the income in either month. Remember that your monthly income must equal your monthly expenditures (including savings). Look ahead to step 3 to see how you can use formulas for proper balancing. QUESTION 3: Assume that your income continues to grow, but consumer prices also rise due to inflation. Determine how economic factors like these might affect your financial analysis one year from now: A. What economic trends might you need to account for when making a one-year projection? B. How might you plan for unexpected expenses when making a one-year projection? Your Answer (150 words or less): A. B.
STEP 3: Your MONTH 2 BUDGET and your MONTH 3 BUDGET may or may not be balanced. To check, do the following: • Enter a formula to calculate your total expenditures. Adjust your expenditures until the total equals your monthly income. • Next, enter formulas in the percent column to calculate each expenditure as a percentage of the total expenditure.
STEP 4: Using the tools in Excel, make a graph for each of the three budgets to show your spending allocation. You may use a pie chart, column chart, bar chart, or some other graph type. Review the tutorial in Unit 1 called Data Visualization if you need a refresher on graphing. If your embedded graphs block your view, move them off the work area, either downward or to the right.
STEP 5: Fill in the table for SAVINGS PROGRESS located at the top right of this spreadsheet: • Enter your monthly savings from steps 1-4. The cumulative savings column will calculate automatically. • Recall your total savings goal from the Unit 2 Touchstone. In the last column, record how much more money you need to save in order to reach your goal. • If you can’t recall your savings goal, create a new one so you’re able to complete the table.
STEP 6: Using the tools in Excel, make a graph that shows your incremental progress toward your savings goal based on the data in the SAVINGS PROGRESS table: • Select a graph type that best illustrates your progress. Move the graph off the work area if it obstructs your view. • Finally, using steps 1-6 as a reference, complete the REFLECTION QUESTIONS on the right side of this spreadsheet.
