Bock Investment Services - Managerial Report 1. Use appropriate descriptive statistics to summarize the data on assets and yields for the money market funds.

The data is summarized by the most appropriate descriptive statistics in the following table for the 3 variables of interest, as a starting point in the analysis: | ASSETS | YLD_7 DAY | YLD_30 DAY | Mean | 1994.8089 | 4.1622 | 4.0982 | Median | 496.5000 | 4.1800 | 4.1300 | Mode | 1.70 | 4.16 | 3.89 | Std. Deviation | 4644.1251 | 0.3262 | 0.3253 | Range | 27003.90 | 2.12 | 2.12 | Minimum | 1.70 | 2.67 | 2.61 | Maximum | 27005.60 | 4.79 | 4.73 |

* For assets, it is very clear that the range is very big; this is a first indication that the assets data has a lot of variability. Also, mean and median are very different for assets: this is an indication that some outlier may exist, because the median is less sensitive to outliers than the average. * For the 2 yield values, there is much less variability in the data, because the standard deviation is a small percentage of the mean, and the data seems to be more centered, as mean, mode and median have similar values. 2. Develop a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean assets, mean 7 day yield, and mean 30-day yield for the population of the money market funds. Provide a managerial interpretation of each interval estimate.

Since the sample size is n=45 (>30), I can use a standard normal distribution to compute the interval estimation; 95% confidence level corresponds from the table to z=1.96. Since the standard deviation for the population of money market funds is unknown, the standard deviation of the sample is used. Given that the sample is statistically large (>30) the error in doing that is small. The standard error for the means for the 3 variables are then the standard deviations of the sample data divided by

Your spirit gets trapped!” I tried to ask her who “he” was but she disappeared. It must have been part of the act. My friend and I drove up from Georgia to Tennessee just see the biggest freak show in the USA. We walked up to the ticket box and asked for two tickets. As we were walking into the arena I saw the little girl again, but this time she was yelling at a couple to leave. I started to walk to her, she turned, looked at me, and disappeared again. Charlie & I found our seats after about a half hour of searching. We have front row seats, right in front of all the action. As we sat down we realized everyone had popcorn, cotton candy, & soda so I told Charlie that I would go get us our snacks while she saves our seats. As I was walking there were “freaks” everywhere doing tricks for little kids & their parents. I got so caught up in all the tricks I didn't have much time left to get us snacks, so I rushed to the concessions grabbed our snacks & rushed back to our seats.

#### Stereotypes In Hardison's Demon Freaks

...Demon Freaks, by J.R.R.R. (jim) Hardison begins by introducing Bing and Ron Slaughter, fraternal twin brothes, with vastly different styles and personalities (so seriously, why bother making them twins at all). Bing, named after the crooner, Crosby, is the weak stomached , gauntish, thinker, with black hair, and penchant for British Punk Rock garb. Ron, who’s namesake is the happymeal pushing clown of fast-food fame, sports, the body mass, pigment, and get-it-done attitude his minutes older brother lacks. With long blonde hair, jeans, and a gaudy Hawaiian shirt, he affects more of a surfer-grunge look. These boys are in an angsty teen band along with a pair of their friends. Kaitlyn Krimpson is the long time classmate and unrequited crush of the brothers. She is smart but flakey; and, perpetually late, due to an obession with showering. Prathmesh Kimitri, aka Meat (complete with allusion to A.T.H.F.) is an East Indian lad, atypical of the common stereotype. He is the unkempt , doofy, class-clown, with no qualms about spoofing his wealthy, pseudo-celeberty father....

#### Essay 2 Microtheme 5

...Genna Cahill English Composition 1001 Essay 2 Microtheme 5 After reading Rachel Adams’s chapter “Sideshow Cinema”, I have gained a new perspective on Tod Browning’s film Freaks. Adams suggests that there may be a fine line between monster and victim regarding the normal people, such as Cleopatra and Hercules, and the freaks, such as Hans and the conjoined Hilton twins. “After establishing Hans as a sympathetic character who suffers unwarranted abuse, the spectacle of Cleo’s body, mutilated at the hands of the freaks, leaves the viewer unsure about who is the victim and who aggressor,” Adams describes (77). Up until the point of Cleo’s revelation as the “chicken-woman”, the normal-looking people leave us to feel more sympathy for the freaks based on the treatment of them. Majority of the film, we see Cleo, Hercules, and their normal friends treat the freaks as inferiors, teasing them subtly to their faces and more so behind their backs. Therefore, in this sense, the normal people can be seen as monsters and the freaks as victims. The effect of the camera also gives us more sympathy for the freaks. The settings in which these people are placed affect the way we see them. For example, Hans is often placed next to larger objects, especially in Cleo’s wagon, and this makes him, in proportion, look much, much smaller than he actually is. This is true when we are looking at Cleopatra from his point of view as well. Compared to Hans, she seems a lot taller, and we can understand...
