Mandatory Audit Firm Rotation - ... According to Cohen (2010:753), regulators anticipate that mandatory rotation will make the general public have a positive attitude towards the financial market thanks to improved audit quality and independence. Generally, regulators believe that implementing the mandatory rotation rule might protect the public from a repeat of the recent financial crisis. Auditors Both the auditors and audit firms are reluctant to embrace the mandatory audit firm rotation. For example, according to Beasley et al....   [tags: improving audit quality] 2076 words

Crop Rotation and Soil Sustainability - Crop Rotation and Soil Sustainability Agriculture is responsible for providing food for an ever-growing population, and as it becomes clear that yields cannot continue to rise without limit, sustainability of agricultural practices becomes an increasingly important question. The soil is a precious resource in which all of agriculture has its base, and careful management of this complex system is essential. Crop rotation is one of the most important management practices in a sustainable agriculture system, both as a means of conserving soil and of maintaining its fertility....   [tags: Agriculture Farming Papers]

Rotation of Mental Images and its Effects on Reaction Time - ... Furthermore, the main question was whether subjects would take longer when the images were rotated further from the vertical. Students responded to each image by doing a button press on the computer to distinguish between the two types of images- mirror or matched. Students either pressed 1 or 2, for matched or mirror respectively. The images included in this experiment consisted of letters and a number. The letters used were such that if its mirror image were shown, the mirror image would be different from its real image....   [tags: experimental psychology, participants, study] 1322 words

Rotation of the letter "R" - Rotation of the letter "R" Psychologists have been interested in the processes that go on in the mind for centuries. However, a new method for assessing the various processes emerged in the 1970's. Several researchers predicted that mental imagery was treated by the brain similarly to actions performed on physical objects. Thus, performance in tasks involving inspection, rotation, and comparison of mental images according to size should be similar to results obtained using actual objects. Kosslyn, Ball, and Reiser (1978) asked participants to scan a mental map after studying a map of an island with several landmarks....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Mental Rotation Of Images - Abstract The idea of mental imagery has always been a controversial subject in the field of psychology. Many psychologists have argued that such a concept is impossible to measure because it can not be directly observed. Though they are right about this, it is not impossible to measure how quickly mental rotations of images are processed in our brains. Subjects in this experiment were presented two shapes simultaneously, via computer screen, and asked to make judgement, as quickly as possible, as to whether the two shapes presented were the same or mirror images....   [tags: essays research papers] 1435 words

MANDATORY ROTATION OF AUDITORS - Abstract In light of a number of high-profile corporate failures during the first half of 2001, a number of studies have been performed to address the impact of mandatory rotation of audit firms to ensure the appropriate level of ‘independence’ of auditors. Majority of studies conclude that the detrimental effects of firm rotation on the quality of the audit work by far outweigh its positive effects as a safeguard against various independence and quality threats. Frequent changes of audit firms, whether resulting from mandatory rotation or otherwise, introduce threats to independence and operational difficulties that make audit failure more likely....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

The Importance of Wind Turbines for Renewable Energy - ... Low-mass materials are also ideal in order to control blade weight. [5] Larger blades with larger weights are constrained by gravity and will experience greater axial and tensile stresses. Finding the best size and material for rotor blades depends on the purpose of the turbine. Smaller power demands will reduce the need for larger blades and taller turbines. Linking the rotor blades to the electrical generator is the turbine shaft. When the rotor blades spin, the shaft spins as well. The rotational energy that the blades produce is transferred to the electrical generator that is housed in the nacelle....   [tags: blades, rotation, power] 770 words

Presence of Vibrations in Mechanical Systems - Presence of Vibrations in Mechanical Systems – Machine Health monitoring Vibrations are found in most machines especially those that have rotating or reciprocating systems. Some of the vibrations are normal to the standard operation of the machine but some may be the result of mechanical faults including mass unbalance, coupling misalignment, mechanical looseness, and many other causes. So unbalance is the cause of most of the abnormal machine vibration. For example an unbalanced rotor always causes more vibration and generates excessive force in the bearing area and reduces the life of the machine....   [tags: balance, rotation, safety] 545 words
