6. Ernie Els wants to save money to meet two objectives. First, he would like to be able to retire 30 years from now with a retirement income of $300,000 per year for 20 years beginning at the end of the 31 years from now. Second, he would like to purchase a cabin in the mountains 10 years from now at an estimated cost of $350,000. He can afford to save only $40,000 per year for the first 10 years. He expects to earn 7 percent per year from investments. Assuming he saves the same amount each year, what must Ernie save annually from years 11 – 30 to meet his objectives?

7. Your younger brother has come to you for advice. He is about to enter college and has two options open to him. His first option is to study engineering. If he does this, his undergraduate degree would cost him $12,000 a year for four years. Having obtained this, he would need to gain two year of practical experience: In the first year he would earn $20,000, in the second year he would earn $25,000. He would then need to obtain his master’s degree, which will cost $15,000 a year for two years. After that he will be fully qualified and can earn $40,000 per year for 25 years.
His other alternative is to study accounting. If he does this, he would pay $13,000 a year for four years and would then earn $31,000 per year for 30 years.
The effort involved in the two careers is the same, so he is only interested in the earning the jobs provide. All earnings and costs are paid at the end of the year. What advice would you give him if the market interest rate is 5 percent? A day later he comes back and says he took your advice, but in fact, the market interest rate was 6 percent. Has your brother made the right choice?

Extensive hardening of the feces may cause prolonged interruption in the routine and is called constipation. Human fecal matter varies significantly in appearance, depending on diet and health. Normally it is semisolid, with a mucus coating. Its brown coloration comes from a combination of bile and bilirubin, which comes from dead red blood cells. In newborn babies, fecal matter is initially yellow/green after the meconium. This coloration comes from the presence of bile alone. In time, as the body starts expelling bilirubin from dead red blood cells, it acquires its familiar brown appearance, unless the baby is breast feeding, in which case it remains soft, pale yellowish, and not completely malodorous until the baby begins to eat significant amounts of other food. Throughout the life of an ordinary human, one may experience many types of feces. A "green" stool is from rapid transit of feces through the intestines (or the consumption of certain blue or green food dyes in quantity), and "clay-like" appearance to the feces is the result of a lack of bilirubin. Bile overload is very rare, and not a health threat. Problems as simple as serious diarrhea can cause blood in one's stool. Black stools caused by blood usually indicate a problem in the intestines...
