Resuming Pace: I Shall Not Be Pursuing a Second Bachelor's Degree

On May the 5th, 2021, I used a strong position deciding my pursuit of a second Bachelor’s degree: my choice was the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC, link), but I decided to resume my Master’s program, by itself. 

Let me explain with Scripture: the Gospel of Jesus Christ According to Matthew, specifically.

In ancient times, records of a man called Jesus the Christ were written. Among these records was a Gospel, According to Matthew, of Jesus Christ. According to legend, Jesus Christ stated, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (KJV, Matthew 5:5, link).” Jesus the Christ was saying those who are submissive shall inherit the earth rather than those who are brash. 

In my attempt at starting a second Bachelor’s program, I eventually realized I had been too pushy: I wanted the May 19th start date, and I wanted the admission process expedited, I wanted ease of access between majors, I wanted advantages to the application process because of what UMGC (I was granted an application fee waiver). 

But this was not submissive: even though the admissions representatives agreed to work on my behalf ,rapidly, they became increasingly burdened with those rapid requests. With a decision, I was faced: go into that program simply using people, or take a step back and count my blessings. After a little while, I called my UMGC point of contact, and I declined to pursue a second Bachelor’s degree with her university, at this time.

Instead, I shall resume my Master of Science in Computer Science program at the Johns Hopkins University in the Fall of 2021. I shall explain this.

Reconsidering my Johns Hopkins University application with the same rigor I reviewed my UMGC application, I realized my desire to learn from university guides rather than strong demand to get into the program probably earned me a place at this great institution. In my application essay, I did express my history of successes in academia, but my main focus is stretching my limits to their optimized realizations. This cannot be accomplished brashly; discipline requires ranking and filing. 

Therefore, on August 30, 2021, I shall resume climbing the stairs where the wisdom of God and man and the foolishness of God and man might be understood with great rigor rather than quit.

Cyber Security: The New Digital Frontier, but the Same Spirit Battle

                Considering Holy Security When Paul, formerly known as Saul of Tarsus, was preaching the good word, he saw the purpose of protecting the assets of a person as ultimately important. Paul said, “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” ( New International Version , Eph 6:11-17). Paul said to protect against evil with ABBA's word. In my view, this means applying the spirituality of holy defense to the life of an individual in any place and time. In contemporary times, cybersecurity can be a digital representation of the principalities of holiness effectively protecting against the sins of humanity. Cyber Security Hygiene Larry Magid shared insights about cyber security. Magid said, “So your cyber hygiene isn’t just about protecting you, it’s about protecting all of us” (Magid, 2014). The woman should protect her own interests and the interests of those who she works with along with her clients because true security i

On Computer Organization and Architecture: the Hierarchy

On, Abirami Thangavel wrote Superscalar & VLIW Architectures: Characteristics, Limitations & Functions. Regarding parallel architectures, superscalar and VLIW, Thangavel wrote: In computer architecture, parallel processing refers to processing of multiple instructions of a program by distributing them among multiple processors. Superscalar and Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) are parallel architectural models based on Flynn's Taxonomy. Both superscalar and VLIW architectures are capable of executing multiple instructions at one cycle. Each uses a different method for instruction scheduling. While superscalar processors execute instructions dynamically, VLIW uses static scheduling of program instructions.[1] Thangavel was saying this: on Flynn’s Taxonomy, superscalar and VLIW architectures are based, but they have differences. Therefore, on entity priorities, entities have different descriptive capabilities. As follows, a superscalar processor is this: a microproc
