1. The main difference between ATX and BTX motherboards is the position of the slots.
BTX motherboards are like mirrored ATX boards. Where the connectors of the serial ports, parallel ports, keyboard, mouse, USB, etc. are soldered today we find the expansion slots in the BTX boards. And where the expansion slots are today, in BTX motherboards we find the board connectors (serial ports, parallel ports, keyboard, mouse, USB, etc.

2. The physical size does not affect performance. In fact, performance differences between motherboards (if all other hardware is the same) are not typical, perhaps a new memory controller may give a better benchmark score but that's about it.
Instead, look at the CPU socket and chipset, which determine amongst other things what processors you can use, also look at the type and number of expansion slots.
A Mini-ITX board supporting only single core Atom processors with 1 RAM slot and a PCI slot is not a basis for a high performance machine, however other ITX boards support other hardware.
The main advantage to ITX is its small size, leading to its use in small form factor machines such as HTPCs. ATX boards are more mainstream and due to the larger size generally have more expansion slots and therefore flexibility.
Is there anything specific you were wondering? The above is just general information which may not answer your specific question, if you have one.

3. ATX, or Advanced Technology Extended, and Micro ATX are the standard form factors for computer motherboards. The most evident difference is in size. Micro ATX motherboards are considerably smaller than regular ATX motherboards. Choosing one or the other can affect your future buying options--most notably, case compatibility.

Page Decision

...Lindsay Carling Rough Draft Period 2 January 24th, 2013 The Page Decision When I was three years old, my parents were divorced. A truly horrible time for any family, and mine was no exception. After about a decade of being married, they decided that they just weren't good for each other and wanted to end things before my brother and I grew up. It was a wise decision. I can't really remember a lot of what happened. (Victim mentality, mother changed, pitied.) Having a family as mixed up as mine just took a little getting used to over the years. A year after the divorce, my father remarried. My stepmother was a widow and already had three boys of her own....Quite the rough and tumble type. My stepmother was delighted to have a girl and did all the things a mother would dream of with a girl, except I didn't want any part of it. I was always very introverted and independent and didn't want any of what she wanted me to do. It remains mostly the same to this day. (Neilson relationship.) About six months after my father remarried, my mother did as well. It was all very weird to me, even at five years old. He's just so...old. My stepfather was nice, but just not in the mood for children (having seven of his own already prior to his divorce who were all older than me and my brother), and he automatically became responsible for two little ones. Good way to start of a marriage. (Negative household) All throughout my life up until my decision, it was always the same. I...

The Pages of History

...The Pages Of History by Donald Smith Professor David K. Woodroof English 122 22 June 2011 The Pages of History I have often contemplated about what makes something important enough to be recorded on the pages of history. History is only as accurate as the scribes that laid down its foundation and the editors that decided what was important enough to be retained. People possibly for their brilliance or horrendous acts, inventions or monumental events that may have changed the world are recorded for posterity. Editors have the difficult task of sifting through mountains of historical recordings, selecting the most significant and compiling them accordingly into anthologies or independent volumes. Over the centuries some items have remained while others have faded from history’s pages. In many instances those items that made it past the editor’s pen shall remain among the pages of history for eternity. As an example, if I were to mention Thomas Edison, one would immediately think of the electric light bulb. Others are forever enshrined in history for their brilliant minds: Newton; Galileo; Michelangelo; Da Vinci; or Hitler and the Nazis for their infamous acts. Not limited to people, events such as the discovery of the new world, the Battle of Gettysburg, and the rise and fall of the Roman Empire have made past the editors. Many rightly deserve their places in the annals of recorded time but some have elevated or cemented themselves on history’s pages......

Lary Page

...Lawrence Page was born in East Lansing, Michigan on March 26th 1973 to the pioneering computer scientist Dr. Carl Page and his wife Gloria. Both his parents were computer science professors at Michigan State University when the field was still in its nascent stages. Page was educated at a Montessori school in Okemos, Michigan and graduated from East Lansing High School in 1991. His childhood was filled with curiosity and experimentation - frequently taken to dismantling things with his brother to see how they functioned. Given the family background it was hardly a surprise when Page went on to study for a Bachelor of Science in computer engineering at the University of Michigan. While at university, Page’s skills came to the fore, creating an inkjet printer out of LEGO and serving as a member of the 1993 solar car team. On top of his forays into invention, Page served as the president of the Beta Epsilon chapter of Eta Kappa Nu. Afterwards, he moved to California to study for a Masters in computer science at Stanford University. It was here that he started exploring the structure of the world wide web for a dissertation thesis. Page honed in on trying to work out how many pages linked to any given page, believing the information to be valuable for citations and academic publishing spheres. Sergey Brin, a fellow student, soon joined him on his project. They had already met in 1995 at an orientation for Ph.D candidates. Brin, a few years Page’s senior in the program...

Larry Page

...Management Lessons From Larry Page Posted May 16, 2013 by Ryan D Synopsis: After Google’s Larry Page’s announcement that he suffers from vocal chord paralysis, questions of management styles have arisen. How do you manage your company? Have you ever tried it any other way? We discuss. Google CEO Larry Page has trouble speaking at times. For years, people questioned if something was wrong as analysts found his tone not quite right during reporting calls. Two days ago, he clarified the situation for everyone, writing on Google+ that he suffers from vocal cord paralysis likely brought on by a virus damage from a cold. This has brought along a national conversation about how to lead while sick or suffering from an illness. In the post, Page writes: “And giving long monologues is more tedious for me and probably the audience. But overall over the last year there has been some improvement with people telling me they think I sound better. Vocal cord nerve issues can also affect your breathing, so my ability to exercise at peak aerobic capacity is somewhat reduced. That said, my friends still think I have way more stamina than them when we go kitesurfing! And Sergey says I’m probably a better CEO because I choose my words more carefully.” While it’s hard to say whether or not he’s better, it does bring up questions about management styles. Has his improved because of the inability to talk? Would that work for you? Everyone has their own way of managing the...

Web Page

...Web page A web page or webpage is a document commonly written in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) that is accessible through the Internet or other network using a browser. A web page is accessed by entering a URL address and may contain text, graphics, and hyperlinks to other web pages and files. The page you are reading now is an example of a web page. HTML Developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990, HTML is short for HyperText Markup Language. HTML is used to create electronic documents (called pages) that are displayed on the World Wide Web. Each page contains a series of connections to other pages called hyperlinks. Every web page you see on the Internet is written using one version of HTML code or another. Hypertext A method of organizing and accessing text or other data, such as tables, presentational content and images, through the use of hyperlinks. Today, anyone who has been on the Internet is familiar with hypertext as it is in every link they click or tap. Hypertext is a concept that was mentioned in an Atlantic Monthly article in 1945 by Vannevar Bush, who talked about a photo-electric mechanical device called a Memex (short for memory extension) capable of creating and following links between documents on microfiche. This concept was later coined by Ted Nelson in 1965 who worked for and with Andries van Dam at Brown University. Andries, with the help of Ted and other Brown University students, created a Hypertext Editing System (HES). However, the first public......

Web Page

...Being able to create a web page is an interesting development. In the beginning, researching which tutorials to use for this project seemed a little difficult for deciding which ones to use. There are numerous tutorials out there but only a few of them include specific tutorials and examples on how you can create a web page step by step. The main one that I used was a site named, Page Tutor which goes over each step on how to create your own page. I enjoyed using this site as my main resource to creating my web page because it gave specific examples as well as pictures revealing how the page will look on the internet with using certain codes. The process with creating my web page was not too difficult. In previous semesters, I’ve taken courses related to Web Development and Flash. They were interesting classes and while working on this project it brought back some of the things I’ve learned from those classes. A few things I had forgotten but overall I had fun while working on this web page. The coding was not too hard to grasp but it reminded me how easily you can make a mistake. Some of the mistakes I stumbled upon were not closing brackets or misspelling some of the coding on my page. This can take some time to realize what mistakes you’ve made which I spent quite some time looking over. This was an exciting and interesting project to work on. Hopefully in the future, I will continue with Web Development since it’s a stimulating process....

They require all kinds of different situations in which to feel ‘comfortable’ when writing. Use the following short questionnaire to help you think about your own writing processes. • When you write an important text, do you make more than one draft? • Do you prefer to write on paper or use a computer? Have you ever asked yourself why? • What do you do before you start writing? • How do you start writing? Do you begin at ‘the beginning’ or jump in wherever you have some ideas? Do you think one approach is better than another? • What do you do while you are writing? Do you stop and think?

To an Empty Page

...Sonnet: “to an Empty Page” In Robert Pack's, "To an Empty Page," the speaker discusses death and its consequences regarding relief to show the author's purpose as a feeling of loneliness and depression. He does this with the use of an echo sonnet form, foreshadowing within the title, and through the use of emotion evoking pathos. Pack's use of a sonnet for reveals his feelings and emotions toward love, which sonnets are normally about. Readers can feel the raw emotion that Pack reveals in his discussion regarding the speakers possible death and loss of love, thereafter. In addition, the fact that he wrote an echo sonnet aids in the author’s purpose because it allows the reader to be aware of the words meant to be emphasized. Along with its emphasis, the echo, in some cases, seems to answer a rhetorical question made by the speaker. For example, “what’s the end of my life’s long disease? Ease,” (line 7). Within this quote, the speaker is relaying his belief that the only way to relieve himself of life’s burdens is through death. Pack exposes his true feelings of loneliness, which in sonnet form allows readers to sense his passion. The title, "To an Empty Page," Pack eludes that his poem is dark and filled with sadness. A breakdown of the title shows that Pack's diction with using, "To," was as if the speaker was sending his sonnet to somebody; as if he were talking to an imaginary listener. But contrast to that idea, he is sending his sonnet to, "an Empty Page," ......

Larry Page

...http://larrypage.weebly.com/ Background You always hear stories about people who knew what they wanted to do with their life the second they started living. Larry Page was, and still is, one of those people. Since the tender age of 12, Page knew that one day he would start his own business. Of course, the elements contributing to this decision began at a much younger age than twelve. One would say that the love of inventing things ran in the family. Page's parents, Gloria and Carl Page, were two highly talented and intelligent computer science professors at the University of Michigan. While other six years olds were off playing sports and collecting baseball cards, Page took great interest in dismantling items in his house to "see how it worked". When asked about his childhood, Page commented "(there were) computers and Popular Science magazines everywhere". From this quote, it is quite evident that there was something unusual about Page from a very young age. Page moved on to become the first kid at his school to turn in an assignment from a word processor. One of his first inventions was an inkject printer made entirely from LEGO bricks. As Page grew older, he decided not to put his talent of inventing items to waste, and became interested in the world of business. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering from the University of State Michigan and a Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University. He graduated from both schools with......

... 1/6 15/04/2016 Variable Pay ­ Encyclopedia ­ Business Terms | Inc.com certain results. Nowhere is this situation seen more clearly than in the balance between fixed and variable pay, since employee compensation in many industries is a company's single largest expense. ADVANTAGES AND DRAWBACKS OF VARIABLE PAY Most criticisms of variable pay can be traced to concerns about the nature, implementation, and execution of such programs rather than the theories upon which they are based. In practice, many companies fail to make variable pay programs meaningful to individual employees, which in turn robs the program of much of its power to facilitate increased productivity. In a report published by the Institute of Management & Administration entitled Companies Are Not Getting Full Value from Variable Pay Programs, the findings showed, as the title implies, that companies report very mixed results from variable pay programs. The survey reported on in the Institute of Management & Administration article was carried out by the firm Hewitt Associates. The Hewitt data showed that about half of companies with single-digit revenue growth believed that the cost of their variable pay programs outweighed the benefit. Companies with double-digit revenue growth, however, almost all reported positive outcomes from their variable pay programs. "The fact that many companies don't benefit from variable pay plans is a significant issue, as they're spending more than......

...DOMESTIC CHANGING HEORY CHANGING PRACTICE 1. Introduction Throughout our world, violence confronts us daily. We hear about it on the news. We read about it in newspapers and on the Internet. We experience it subtly and overtly in all cultures and across nations in incidents ranging from ethnic slurs to hate crimes to violence carried out in the name of ideology. Such incidents of violence tend to be easily seen as they fall within the public domain. Less visible, however, but often more devastating, is the domestic violence that occurs within the family and often against women. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) (2001) notes in a summary of research done on four continents that as many as 20 to 50 percent of all women in the studies reported experiencing partner violence. But what are the links among domestic violence, health care profession, nurses, and ethics? In moral philosophy, there is a long tradition of debate on whether true moral dilemmas can exist, some arguing that it will always be possible to decide which obligation should prevail. On this concept regardless of the abstract possibility of an ideal resolution and the pragmatic reality that decisions are made and people have to live with them. An ethical dilemma presents a choice that must be made between two mutually exclusive courses of action, each of which is perceived to rest on a moral obligation that carries significant weight for the actor confronting the dilemma. According to ......
