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…...

...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. The mean difference between the two groups is 1.84 hours. 5. Were the experimental and control groups similar in their type of feeding? Provide a rationale for your answer.

Were these appropriate? Length of Labor is measured in hours. It is s an appropriate measurement because the time measured is less than a 24 hours. 3) What other statistic could have been used to describe the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer Length of Labor could have been measure in minutes for more accurate measurement. 4) Were the distributions of scores similar for the experimental and control groups for the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer. Both groups showed similar scores, well inside the first standard deviation. 5 ) Were the experimental and control groups similar in their type of feeding?

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. Were the distributions of scores similar for the experimental and control groups for the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer. d. The standard deviation for the experimental and control groups were 7.78 and 7.2 hours, respectively. By looking at standard deviation, yes the distribution of scores appear similar. However, when looking at the average length of hours for these groups, the experimental group’s length of labor was almost 2 hours longer which I feel is quite a significant difference. Each group must have similar outliers...

Chapter 16 Finance Problems

...CHAPTER 16 2. Baruk Industries has no cash and a debt obligation of $36 million that is now due. The market value of Baruk’s assets is $81 million, and the firm has no other liabilities. Assume perfect capital markets. a. Suppose Baruk has 10 million shares outstanding. What is Baruk’s current share price? Assets – debt / shares 81-36/10 = 4.5 $4.50 per share b. How many new shares must Baruk issue to raise the capital needed to pay its debt obligation? Debt / share price 36/4.5 = 8 million shares c. After repaying the debt, what will Baruk’s share price be? Share price would still be the same $4.50 7. You have received two job offers. Firm A offers to pay you $85,000 per year for two years. Firm B offers to pay you $90,000 for two years. Both jobs are equivalent. Suppose that firm A’s contract is certain, but that firm B has a 50% chance of going bankrupt at the end of the year. In that event, it will cancel your contract and pay you the lowest amount possible for you to not quit. If you did quit, you expect you could find a new job paying $85,000 per year, but you would be unemployed for 3 months while you search for it. a. Say you took the job at firm B, what is the least firm B can pay you next year in order to match what you would earn if you quit? You can earn $85,000 per year, however you would be unemployed for 3 months, so in reality, you would only work for 9 months and make $63.75 thousand. b. Given your answer to part (b), and assuming your...

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 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...

...Exercise 11 1.What demographic variables are measured at least at the interval level of measurement? Age, Income, length of labor, return to work and number of hours worked per week. 2.What statistics were used to describe the length of labor in this study? Were these appropriate? The length of labor mean was 14.63 for the experimental group and 12.79 for the control group. The SD for each group was about 7 which seems appropriate. 3. What other statistics could have been used to describe the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer. Time from when the persons water broke or time from their first contraction, when does the length of labor begin, using the time of the first contraction would give a better statistic for length of labor 4. Were the distributions of scores similar for the experimental and control groups for the length of labor? Provide a rationale for your answer. The N number for the experimental group is 30 and 33 for the control group. The median is 14.63 for the experimental group and 12.79 for the control. Based on the N number the scores are very similar based on the number of people in both groups. 5. Were the experimental and control groups similar in their types of feeding? Provide a rationale for your answer. Yes both were almost identical in types of feeding, the rationale being that when the groups were divided they were done so randomly so there would be no reason or cause for the groups to be different. 6...

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...
