News! 1. 6/6/2013 Doug Gross. * Barack Obama believes that there should be internet access in all schools. He wants to provide funds to around 99% of public schools for them to be able to have internet, even in libraries. He says that he wants all American students to be connected online in five years. Usually, adults don’t go for this type of thing they want children to not be so ‘connected’ to the internet. They want kids to not spend so much time on computers, but he almost wants just that to happen. People are becoming way too dependent on computers and the internet, which even libraries are eventually only going to be used just for that. Although Obama is more so moderate, this idea is clearly making him to be a liberal. He wants the change and wants to continue to further the change on technology.

2. 6/8/2013 Maureen Dowd * In this article, she quotes the book 1984. She is talking about how Bush felt about 9/11 and some of the after effects. It turns out that, for seven years the N.S.A was taking information from our phone calls. This all started while Bush was president through a program called prism. Prism would let the F.B.I. and N.S.A. into many social media websites and was able to access all of our information. These people were trying to spot out terrorists, and will go to any means necessary. According to Obama, they necessarily can’t hear the conversations; they are just able to learn about who we call. They also are saying that they don’t collect the information, which doesn’t add up. This show how desperate the country has been since 9/11 has happened. It’s almost as if they are trying to do anything to find what’s not there.

33 Miners

...Kandace H BCOM/275 29 May 2012 Knowing Your Audience Paper and Communication Release Knowing Your Audience Paper and Communication Release On Aug. 5, 2010, a gold and copper mine near the northern city of Copiapó, Chile caved in, trapping 33 miners in a chamber about 2,300 feet below the surface. For 17 days, there was no word on their fate. As the days passed, Chileans grew increasingly skeptical that any of the miners had survived. But when a small bore hole reached the miners’ refuge, they sent up a message telling rescuers they were still alive. From the beginning of this tragic event communication needs to be designed from the bottom up (figuratively). It is important to inform and communicate with the team of rescue workers, medical personnel, technicians and mining experts, journalist, family members and the trapped miners. Taking into consideration there are different roles and different people in the audience, the potential needs of each receiving the information is considerably different. With the team of rescue workers, medical personnel, technicians, and mining experts there is going to be a more direct method of receiving a message. Knowing their job and position direct communication is what they rely on to get the trapped miners out. The trapped miners are also going to need a direct method of receiving information but in a more sensitive way. Letting them know that help is on the way, trying to stay calm, involving them and keeping them......

Case 33 Cpk

...FINANCE, INSURANCE, & LAW 349: ADVANCED FINANCIAL THEORY AND PROBLEMS Case 33: California Pizza Company Suggested Questions: 1. In what ways can Susan Collyns facilitate the success of CPK? 2. Using the scenarios in case Exhibit 9, what role does leverage play in affecting the return on equity (ROE) for CPK? What about the cost of capital? In assessing the effect of leverage on the cost of capital, you may assume that a firm’s CAPM beta can be modeled in the following manner: L = U[1 + (1 − T)D/E], where U is the firm’s beta without leverage, T is the corporate income tax rate, D is the market value of debt, and E is the market value of equity. 3. Based on the analysis in case Exhibit 9, what is the anticipated CPK share price under each scenario? How many shares will CPK be likely to repurchase under each scenario? What role does the tax deductibility of interest play in encouraging debt financing at CPK? 4. What capital structure policy would you recommend for CPK? 1. 1. I think that the CFO, Susan Collyns, could facilitate success of the firm by implementing the following measures: A. Increase the advertising spending. According to the article that CPK spent 1% of its sales on advertising, less than the 3% to 4% of sales that casual dining competitors, such as Chili’s, Red Lobster, Olive Garden and Outback Steakhouse, spent annually.CPK is using the  word of mouth advertising to attract more and more coustomers......

Case 6- 33

...Case 6-33 (90 minutes) 1. a. Before the income statement can be completed, we need to estimate the company’s revenues and expenses for the month. The first step is to compute the sales for the month in both units and dollars. Sales in units would be: 90,000 units (August sales) ÷ 1.20 = 75,000 units sold in July. To determine the sales in dollars, we must integrate the break-even point, the margin of safety in dollars, and the margin of safety percentage. The computations are: [pic] [pic] If the margin of safety in dollars is 25% of total sales, then the break-even point in dollars must be 75% of total sales. Therefore, total sales would be: [pic] The selling price per unit would be: $1,350,000 total sales ÷ 75,000 units = $18 per unit. The second step is to determine the total contribution margin for the month of July. This can be done by using the operating leverage concept. Note that a 20% increase in sales has resulted in an 80% increase in net operating income between July and August: [pic] Case 6-33 (continued) Since the net operating income for August increased by 80% when sales increased by 20%, the degree of operating leverage for July must be 4. Therefore, total contribution margin for July must have been: 4 × $135,000 = $540,000. With this figure, July’s income statement can be completed by inserting known data......

Assess the Usefulness of Feminist Theories of Religion. (33 Marks)

...Assess the usefulness of feminist theories of religion. (33 marks) Like Marxist’s, feminists believe that religion can be an instrument of alienation and oppression , the key difference between Marxist theories of religion and feminism is that feminist’s believe religion exists to serve patriarchy as opposed to capitalism. The key feminist thinkers of religion are, Mary Daly, Simone de Beauvoir, Karen Armstrong, Jean Holme and Nawal El Sadawi. They all think that the church has and continues to support inequalities between men and women, this is due to the fact that the teachings benefit men more than women, the main concerns of feminists are religious organisations, place of worship, sacred texts and religious laws and customs. However, another area for concern are the religious professionals, these have traditionally been male and women have not been able to become priests or rabbi’s and were only able to be adorned in 1992 however, this is slowly changing with the vote for female bishops being passed, we should be seeing female bishops before the end of the year. Whilst women remain the main attendees of the church, they still are restricted within their roles, whilst men’s roles within the church tend to be primary, i.e. priest or organ player, women’s roles tend to be behind the scenes and secondary. The place of worship can be very problematic for females, especially of the Jewish faith as they are not allowed to touch their holy book, the Torah. Within religion,......

...What are the advantages Blades could gain from importing from and/or exporting to a foreign country such as Thailand? Blades would have several advantages if they started to import and or export from Thailand. Since rubber and plastic are cheaper when imported from a foreign country such as Thailand, this would increase Blades’ net income and reduce their cost of goods sold. Since several of Blades competitors are already importing components from Thailand, importing would increase Blades’ competitiveness in the United States. If Blades is considering longer range plans in Thailand, importing from and exporting to Thailand may present it with an opportunity to establish initial relationships with some Thai suppliers. Also if they expand to Thailand, Blades, Inc. could be one of the first firms to sell roller blades there and this would give them a competitive advantage. What are some of the disadvantages Blades could face as a result of foreign trade in the short run? In the long run? There are several disadvantages to foreign trade. The currency fluctuations in Thailand dollar would affect Blades. For instance the dollar cost of imported inputs may become more expensive over time. Blades would also be exposed to the economic conditions in Thailand. For example, if there is a recession, Blades would suffer from decreased sales in Thailand. In the long run, Blades should be aware of any regulatory and environmental constraints the Thai government may impose on it.......

33 Miners Trapped

...One miner sent a letter to his wife asking her to re-marry him in a church, since they married 25 years ago in a civil ceremony, which kept both strong mentally and physically. With the needs of the miners being considered, the trapped miners received hygiene supplies, games and entertainment to keep them busy for the two months they were trapped. Family members’ needs were met, by being able to stay close to the trapped miners in a tent city, dubbed Camp Hope, and by communicating with the miners by letter. In this case effective communication was the key to helping keep family members and the miners from losing hope of ever seeing each other again alive.

Assess the Contribution of Functionalism Theories. (33 Marks)

...Assess the contribution of Functionalism theories. (33 marks) Functionalism, devised by Durkheim and Parsons, is a structural theory focusing on the needs of the whole social system and how these shape society’s main features, for example social institutions and humans’ behavioural patterns. The theory is a consensus theory in which views society as based on value consensus (agreement) between its inhabitants about their values, goals and rules. Durkheim saw modern industrial society as based on a complex division of labour which promotes differences between groups, weakening social solidarity. He argued that the resultant freedom to the individual must be regulated by society to prevent extreme egoism from destroying all social bonds. Essentially, he saw society as external and independent to individuals, being made up of ‘social facts’ that constrain and shape people’s behaviour to meet society’s functional prerequisites (needs). Durkheim further believed that if any one thing (‘social fact’) exists, it has a function which will help meet society’s needs, the key ones of which are goals (met through political institutions, e.g. parliament), adaptation (meeting members’ material needs, e.g. through the economy), integration (socialising members into the shared values and goals of society, e.g. through education and the media) and latency (maintaining society through reproduction of its members). Functionalists describe society using an organic analogy and compare......

Each and every year, scientists and engineers find new technologies and languages to integrate into the internet. It is basically a global collection of networks, both big and small, which connect to each other in a variety of ways. To properly understand the internet, you need to look at some of the main components. One of which is hardware. Hardware is the name given to the whole process of terabytes of information being carried to the computer that stands right in front of you. It is the collection of physical elements that constitutes a computer system. Other types of hardware that support the internet include routers, servers, cell phone towers, satellites, radios, smart phones and many other devices. All these devices create the network of networks when put together. The internet is a malleable system, which basically means that it will take little effect when different elements join or leave worldwide networks. Internet as a network: The internet began in the year 1969, and only had 4 main servers (host computer systems). Now, it has over ten million users and servers. Every computer that is connected to the internet forms part of a network. For example, your computer may use dial up or a modem in order to have internet......
