    ABSTRACT:   There are two sides to information warfare: one side attacks computers from the inside (crackers, viruses, worms, etc.) while the other is an all-out war on electronics, conducted through the use of Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and Radio Frequency (RF) devices. In this paper, I focus on how RF and EMP devices might be used against the United States in an act of cyberterrorism, how likely such an attack is, and who might conduct it. In the end, I examine what steps Federal, State, and Local

    The simple idea of an e-bomb is to destroy electrical circuits using strong electromagnetic fields. An e-bomb is a weaponry shell that sends out an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) of enormous power, capable of permanently disabling electronic systems. An electromagnetic bomb is a weapon instead of simply cutting off power in an area; an e-bomb would actually destroy most machines that use electricity. Generators would be hopeless as well as making a phone call and cars wouldn't run. In a matter of seconds

    taken to defend against RF weaponry. One of the first distinctions that should be drawn in this discussion is that between RF weapons and EMP weapons.  An EMP (electromagnetic pulse) is usually employed by detonating a thermonuclear devices at high altitudes (500 miles or more) above the Earth.  The resulting electromagnetic pulse cripples any electronic equipment within its path.  Thus, one nuclear device can be used to cripple the modern infrastructure of an entire nation [1].  An RF device

    Szilagyi, 2013). Respiratory Assessment The two most common thorax deformities are funnel chest and barrel chest. Funnel chest describes a depressed sternum that increases pressure on the underlying organs and may result in changes in blood pressure or pulse rate. In contrast, barrel chest characterizes a rounded chest where the ribs are elevated, separated more than normal, and have an almost completely horizontal slope (Smeltzer, Bare, & Hinkle, 2010). At the beginning of the gross examination, the

To add to the emotional injury, I also learned that my resting pulse rate was 80 beats per minute (bpm). A young man with strong heart muscles has a pulse rate of 70 bpm or less. I now had the evidence I needed to tell me that a change in lifestyle was required. I decided to start an exercise program using a pair of rollerblades I had received as a gift from

    Lab Report The Effects of Drugs on Cardiac Physiology The study of cardio physiology was broken up into five distinct parts all centering on the cardiovascular system. The first lab was utilization of the electrocardiogram (ECG). This studied the electrical activities of the heart by placing electrodes on different parts of the skin. This results in a graph on calibrated paper of these activities. These graphs are useful in the diagnosis of heart disease and heart abnormalities. Alongside
