1-Use the Internet to find a Technology current event article.
Security issues on Volkswagen vehicles software
1.2 million UK Volkswagen vehicles hit by emissions cheating scandal
Published on October 1, 2015 by Charlie Osborne for Between the
lines.
2-Summarizing
As the emerging technology develops, the issues come along with it. The technology can
make life easier, but they can make life harder at the same time. Volkswagen has sold 1.2 million
vehicles to British, but they had problems with software of the vehicle. Only vehicles that
designed between 2009-2015 diesel cars were affected. On Wednesday, over half million
passenger vehicles, almost 400,000 VW-branded Audi vehicles, roughly 76,000 SEATs and over
131,000 Skoda vehicles are affected. Earlier September, the automaker called those passengers to
USA to fix their vehicles. They can pay 37,500 dollars fine per vehicles, it makes 18 billion in
one country alone. Switzerland has already banned the sale of Volkswagen vehicles. Canada,
Germany, South Korea, India and Australia also might ban the sale of Volkswagen vehicles.
3- Find two additional internet articles on the same topic.
I found two article about the issue on Volkswagen vehicles software by Google and
Bing. The article that is found by Google search engine is better because it gives 3,000,000

results in 0.23 seconds. Moreover, the articles on Google are always up to date and they use short
articles and easy words, so reader can ready easily and without boring. However, the articles on
Bing gives 2,310,000 results. Most of them are old news and articles. Also, the articles on Bing
are used with hard words and are long articles that makes the reader bored and hard to
understand.
4- TRAAP your sources.
1- Time: The article on Google was written on September 21, 2015. The article on Bing
was written on September 28, 2015.
2- Relevance: Yes, both articles which are on Google and Bing are related to topic.
3- Authority: The author of article on Google is John Brandon. The article of article on
Bing is Russell Maas. I think, the author of article on Google is more qualified,
because John Brandon worked for 10 years and he is a professional writer. However,
Russell Maas is writer for only 3 years.
4- Accurate: John Brandons article is trustworthy because it is supported by evidences
with interview with Charles King, Ken Westin, and Enderle. Russell Maass article is
not trustworthy, because it isnt supported by any evidence or interview with people.
5- Purpose: The main purpose of these articles are to make people aware about the issue
on Volkswagen vehicles software.
5-Find two scholarly journal articles on the same topic from the CCBC library databases.
Key words: Security on vehicles.
First article: Practical secure and privacy-preserving scheme for value-added
applications in VANETs
Database: ScienceDirect

Key words: Security in vehicles data.


Second article: Secure clustering for efficient data dissemination in vehicular cyberphysical systems
Database: ScienceDirect
6-Compare the Internet and Journal articles.
Comparing the journal and internet articles based on timeliness, authority and ease of
access, it is easy to see differences. The internet articles are better because it finds articles
faster and much more than any other data bases. Moreover, everyone around the world
can access to internet to find articles about anything using search engines. However, in
CCBC library data base we cannot find that much information and only certain people
who attends or attended CCBC College, so it is not easy to access for everyone. Also, the
internet articles are much better than CCBC library database articles, because they are
updated recently. Whereas, in CCBC library data base are not up to date all the time and
it I really hard to find anything is related to your topic. Similarly, if we look at the
authority point of view, anyone can post any article on Internet. Whereas, only students
and professor can post articles on CCBC library data base. On the other hand, the only
advantage of using CCBC library data base is providing information about time, authors
and etc. I think, it is better to use internet article rather than CCBC library articles.
