Discuss the three common methods of estimating bad debt expense using the allowance method. Which method do you think is the most reliable
Weegy: Most popular commercial software for home and business use is extremely shoddy in design and construction -- difficult to use, unreliable, and uneconomical in its use of resources. [ [ [ Why are the standards of software quality so low? Are there any prospects for change? Signs of bad software The worst characteristics of popular commercial software are that each package is frighteningly complicated; that it breaks (crashing or behaving in nonsensical and inconvenient ways) when it exhausts some resource or when the user tries to do something that the programmer did not foresee; that its components are incoherent and even inconsistent; and that its behavior changes over time, depending on some obscure or invisible variable. Complexity No one uses the full power of a large software system. Most people want software to do a small number of things perfectly and efficiently, whereas most commercial software is designed to do many different things awkwardly. Why the mismatch? Partly because different people want to do different things, so the market for a complicated software system is broader; partly because the maker can charge more for complicated software, even though it doesn't meet consumers' needs as well. Fragility Most software breaks easily (and behaves badly when it breaks -- but that's another problem). Why? Basically, because the makers think that it's too much trouble (``not cost-effective'') to make it more robust. Once they have your money, they're not much worried about your trouble and the ensuing costs to you of coping with the problem. A typical example: When a computer program needs to store some information, it attempts to reserve some space for that information in the computer's memory. Usually, this is unproblematical, but sometimes the computer is already remembering as much as it can and has no more space available, so the attempt to reserve space fails. If you or I were designing the program, it would not proceed until some steps had ... (More)

discuss the underlying reasons for the rapid growth of crime laboratories in the united states since the late 1960s
Weegy: Prohibition was a period in which the sale, manufacture, or transport of alcoholic beverages became illegal. It started January 16, 1919 and continued to December 5, 1933. [ Although it was designed to stop drinking completely, it did not even come close. It simply created a large number of bootleggers who were able to supply the public with illegal alcohol. Many of these bootleggers became very rich and influential through selling alcohol and also through other methods. They pioneered the practices of organized crime that are still used today. Thus, Prohibition led to the rapid growth of organized crime. The introduction of prohibition in 1919 created numerous opinions and issues in American society. Prohibition had been a long standing issue in America, with temperance organizations promoting it since the late eighteenth century. The movement grew tremendously during the nineteenth century. The Independent Order of Good Templars, one of the major temperance societies, increased it's membership by 350,000 between 1859 and 1869 (Behr 31). Other societies followed a similar trend, and millions of Americans belonged to temperance societies by the end of the nineteenth century. When the United States entered World War I in 1914, there was a shortage of grain due to the large demands to feed the soldiers. Since grain is one of the major components in alcohol, the temperance movement now had the war to fuel their fight. "The need to conserve grain, the importance of maintaining some semblance of discipline and devotion .... to demonstrate the nation's sober determination to protect its interests." (Repeal .. 1933) Thus, the war played a large part in the introduction of Prohibition. During the next five years many states enacted their own prohibition laws, and finally, at midnight on December 16, 1919, Amendment 18 went into effect. It states that, "...the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating... ] (More)
