-------------------------------------------------

Education/Work: Audubon’s education was arranged by his father. He went to a school that wasn’t far and was tutored in math, geography, drawing, music and fencing. He didn’t like school, his parents tried to get him to learn but he refused, he became a spoiled and stubborn kid. He was sent to Paris to study art but disliked it also.
In France he formed a business partnership with Ferdinand Rozier the son of one of his father's associates. Together they came back to America and tried to operate a lead mine on the farm. In August 1807 the partners decided to move west. There their business failed in various cities in Kentucky, caused by Audubon for roaming the woods rather than keeping the store. After the constant failures with Rozier, Audubon, in association with his brother-in-law, Thomas Bakewell, and others, attempted to start several more businesses, the last being a lumber mill in Henderson, Kentucky. In 1819 this venture failed…...

...Chapter 16 - Corporate Operations Chapter 16 Corporate Operations SOLUTIONS MANUAL Discussion Questions 1. [LO 1] In general terms, identify the similarities and differences between the corporate taxable income formula and the individual taxable income formula. Similarities: Both start with the gross income (income after exclusions) for the taxable year. Both formulas reduce gross income by deductions to determine taxable income. Both formulas apply tax rates to taxable income to determine the tax liability. Finally, both formulas reduce the tax liability by credits and tax payments to determine taxes due or the refund. Both formulas include are allowed to take deductions for business expenses to come to taxable income. Differences: Individuals distinguish deductions between for and from AGI deductions and they report adjusted gross income. Corporations don’t distinguish deduction types and don’t report adjusted gross income. This means corporations don’t itemize deductions nor do they deduct standard deductions. Finally, unlike individuals corporations don’t deduct personal exemptions. 2. [LO 1] Is a corporation’s choice of its tax year independent from its year-end for financial accounting purposes? No. The tax year must be the same year as it uses for financial accounting. 3. [LO 1] Can taxable corporations use the cash method of accounting? Explain. The three types of overall accounting methods which are available to corporations are accrual, cash, and hybrid.......

...HLT362V Applied Statistics for Healthcare Professionals July 20, 2014 Exercise 11 – Using Statistics to Describe a Study Sample 1. What demographic variables were measured at least at the interval level of measurement? Demographic variables that are measured at the interval level are age, income ($), length of labor (hrs), return to work (wks), number of hours working per week. 2. What statistics were used to describe the length of labor in this study? Were these appropriate? The statistics used to describe the length of labor in this study descriptive, they were mean and standard deviation. These are appropriate as they both can be calculated at the interval level of measurement. 3. What other statistic could have been used to describe the length of labor? Provide a rationale for you answer. The median could have been used as the mean and standard deviations for both groups were close. 4. Were the distributions of scores similar for the experimental and control groups for the length of labor? Provide rationale for your answer. Yes, the standard deviation measures the average deviation values of the mean. The difference between the two groups is 0.48 hours which is less than 30 minutes.

What statistics were used to describe the length of labor in this study? Were these appropriate? b. Length of labor for both the control and experimental groups were described with mean and standard deviations. Yes, these were appropriate measures of statistics. 3. What other statistics could have been used to describe the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer. c. In addition to mean and standard deviations, mode could have been used in this study to describe length of labor. It would have given an understanding as to how long the common length of labor was. Median could have also been used, but I don’t think it would be any more beneficial than knowing the average and most common length of labor. 4.

How did the federal government actively promote industrial and agricultural development in this period? BE SPECIFIC. The federal government actively promoted industrial and agricultural development. It enacted high tariffs that protected American industry from foreign competition, granted land to railroad companies to encourage construction, and used the army to remove Indians form western land desired by farmers and mining companies. 2. Why were railroads so important to America’s second industrial revolution? What events demonstrate their influence on society, politics, and the economy? Spurred by private investment and massive grants of land and money by federal, state, and local governments, the number of miles of railroad track in the US tripped between 1860 and 1880 and tripled again by 1920, opening vast new areas to commercial farming and creating truly national market for manufactured goods. The growing population formed an ever-expanding market for the mass production, mass distribution, and mass marketing of goods, essential elements of a modern industrial economy. The railroads created 5 transcontinental lines and 4 times zones throughout the nation. 3. Why did organized efforts of farmers, workers, and local reformers largely fail to achieve substantive change in the Gilded......

Why were railroads so important to America’s second industrial revolution? What events demonstrate their influence on society and politics as well as the economy? Spurred by private investment and massive grants of land and money by federal, state, and local governments, the number of miles of railroad track in the US tripled between 1860 and 1880 and tripled again by 1920, opening vast new areas to commercial farming and creating truly national market for manufactured goods, essential elements of a modern industrial economy.

Why did organized efforts of farmers, workers, and local reformers largely fail to achieve substantive change in the Gilded Age? In order to achieve substantive change in the Gilded Age, farmers, workers, and local reformers sought to bring up protests and strikes; however, the government would respond with force in attempt to prevent further labor difficulties and keep the focus on local corporations. Unions were crushed by big industrialists with force rather than to seek compromise, which effected......

What demographics variables were measured at least at interval level measurement? The demographics variables measured at least on the interval level measurement were the number of hours per week and length of labor hours. 2. What statistics were used to describe the length of labor in this study? Where these appropriate? The mean and standard deviation were used to describe the length of labor of for both group the control and experimental group. I agree these were appropriate measures of statistics. 3. What other statistics could have been used to describe the length of labor? Provide rationale for your answer. In my opinion in addition to the mean and standard deviation, the mode could be used in this study to also describe the length of labor. It will give us and idea of how long the common length of labor was. The median could also been used, but in my opinion will not be more beneficial to knowing the average and the most common length of hours on the control and experimental groups. 4. Were the distributions of scores similar for the experimental and control groups for the length of labor? Provide rationale for your answer. The standard deviation for the experimental group was 7.78(length of hours) and for the control group was 7.2(length of hours).By looking at the scores of the standard deviation my opinion...

Length of labor and number of hours working per week. 2. What statistics were used to describe the length of labor in this study? Were these appropriate? The length of labor was described with the experimental and control groups using means and standard deviations. There could be some misleading data if a couple of subjects worked a lot more hours than the rest. 3. What other statistic could have been used to describe the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer. The statistic that could be used for this is the median. The median is the middle score for a set of data arranged by magnitude and it is less skewed outliers. 4. Were the distributions of scores similar for the experimental and control groups for the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer. Yes, both groups were similar. The mean is 14.63 in the experimental group and 12.79 in the control group. The standard deviations in the experimental group 7.78 and 7.2 in the control group. The only difference is caused by the fact there was 30 in the experimental group and 33 in the control group. 5. Were the experimental and control groups similar in their type of feeding?

Chapter 16

...Chapter 16, Question 5 Frictional unemployment is important to have in the economy because it allows individual with skills and competences a better opportunity at finding jobs. Frictional unemployment is important because it matches the demand for employees with supply and brings stability in the labor market. (Goodwin N.) Frictional unemployment only assists those who are jobless and are looking for work. Those that are employed and are looking for a new job are not counted under frictional unemployment. Frictional unemployment exists due to the disparity between characteristics of supply and demand job markets. Some of the characteristics of disparity are skills, locations, attitudes, payments, work timing and more. (Farnham P.) Frictional unemployment is established in a rapid-pace economy that is flexible, expanding and adaptable within the work force. Most economists believe that frictional unemployment is a sign of economic well being. Frictional unemployment supports employees as they allow them to seek jobs they like best. (Goodwin N) Frictional unemployment benefits the employers by allowing them the opportunity to select among the most talented. Frictional unemployment is mainly for individuals that are just leaving college and those that are unemployed due to changing of jobs. Frictional unemployment decreases the availability of talent to companies, and gains in turnover, but losses to productivity and the economy as a whole. When individuals......
