How would you define personality?
What are some key personality features that define you?
What key concepts or “constructs” are used to explain your personality?
Are your personality features consistent or do they change according to the situation?
Have you ever taken a personality test before? If so, what was your reaction to the analysis? If not, what would you expect a proper test to measure?
What would make a personality test reliable and valid?

1.  Identify an important local, national or international problem that needs to be solved.  Locate two or more articles that provide background information and analysis of the problem.  Using these articles as a resource, analyze the problem using the problem solving method developed in this chapter.
Read the selection Is Google Making Us Stupid?  Page 122-128.  Answer the following questions:
2. Have you noticed in your own life that it’s easier for you to move quickly around the web than to spend concetrated time reading a book or lengthy article?concentrating on an issue or problem for an extended period of time?  describe your experiences with both surfing the web and reading books and lengthy articles.
3.  The author notes that “The web has been a godsendto me as a writer.   research that once required days in the stacks or periodical rooms of libraries can now be done in minutes.”  do th epowerful advantages of using the Internet necessarily mean that we have to sacrifice our ability to read deeply and think reflectively.
4.  The author acknowledges that “the Net is becoming a universal medium, the conduit for most of the information that flows through my eyes and ears and into my mind” and that this puts him at risk for being a :mere decder of information” rather than a deep thinker about information.  Woul you say that this also true for you? Explain.
5.  Imagine that you are the president of Tennessee State University and that you want students to use the full power of the Internet in their education but you also wish them to develop their abilities to think deeply, concentrate, and contemplate.  Analyze this problem and develop some practical solutions for dealing with the challenge.

Thinking Activity 3’1 page 100
Think about people who you know whom you admiire as expert thinkers and list some of the qualities these people exhibit that you believe qualify them as “critical thinkers.  For each critical thinking quality, write down an example involving the person.


What is a variable

200 word count for each question.

Basic & Public Key cryptographic Algorithm


Question 1: List some of the attacks on the Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol we discussed in the lecture. Present your solution for avoiding such attacks.
Question 2: In the Diffie-Helman protocol, g=11, p=29, x=5, and y=7.
What is the value of the symmetric key?
What is the value of R1 and R2?

Question 3: In the Diffie-Helman protocol, what happens if x and y have the same value, that is, Alice and Bob accidentally chosen the same number? Are R1 and R2 same? Do the session key calculated by Alice and Bob have the same value? Explain what would adversary observe? Could she guess Alice’s and Bob’s private key? Use an example to prove your claims.
Question 4: Using RSA scheme, let p=23, q=31, d=457, calculate the public key e. Provide detailed description of all steps, explain what information will be published and what destroyed.
Optionally: Encrypt and decrypt simple message M1=100.
