In chapter five I learn quite a few key points in history I was not aware of. For one it appears that much of early America and Europe are in turmoil as there are several distinct conflicts that arise; most based on difference of opinion or beliefs. “The political fate of North America also remained in question, as the English, the French, and the Indians continued to struggle for supremacy over the continent; developments during the half-century after 1700 intensified both social diversity and political uncertainty, resulting in an increasing incidence of violent conflict.” I feel young Americas early development was all over the place as all its settlers were trying to figure out what worked best for themselves. Everything from religion, difference in opinion on the subject of slavery, and enlightenment had early Americans at each other throats. Even though a centuries worth of settlement had elapsed, no one seemed to legitimately “settle”. I feel like early Americans were over zealous; everyone had their own idea of how things should work in the new land and no one could make up their mind or settle on one image. This is to be expected in my opinion as there were those still faithful to backcountry beliefs, English immigrants, who contradicted with non-English immigrants ideals.
It was that difference in beliefs that had drew cause for conflict and war. Britain tried to choke hold Americans into submission by deriving the many taxation acts that

would bind Americans to their parent country. However this ultimately backfired on Britain with the final push of seizing arms at Concord. This occurrence led to the beginning of the Revolution. I feel either Britain was stretching itself to thin, engaging itself in to many skirmishes worldwide for power, or they personally felt that engaging…...

...Business Analysis I, II & III Stephanie Upchurch MGT/521 June 11, 2011 Anthony Manzanetti Business Analysis I, II & III Part I of the business analysis will review the outcomes of the SWOT analysis conducted for Ford Motor Company. The SWOT analysis will look at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunity, and the threats that Ford Motor faces. Next, part II of the business analysis will review Fords income statement, balance sheet and cash flow to determine the financial health of the company. Last, part III of the business analysis will review the strategic initiatives of Ford Motor Company relating to the organizational and operational adaptations to the changing automobile market. SWOT Analysis The reduced availability of fuel and the economic distress of Ford suppliers place the company in potential risk. The world has experienced great woes in regard to fuel availability. Events beyond car manufactures control have caused consumers to take a second look at the way they purchase automobiles. As gas prices increase consumers seek price effective ways to travel and transport goods. SUV’s, V-8 engine cars and other gas guzzling vehicles abate consumer purchases. Ford must combat the potential risk of consumer purchase decline by producing fuel efficient vehicles while making up profit losses in the slump of sales in major Ford models such as the Expedition, Explore and the F-150, super Duty and Ranger. The following will review the outcomes of the...

Basel (I Ii Iii)

..., will be excluded under Basel III. Those capital instruments that will no longer qualify as “capital” under Basel III will be phased out of a bank’s capital calculation over a ten-year period starting in 2013. This transition period will help those banks that do not currently possess the sufficient amount and types of capital comply with the new requirements. In addition to increasing the quality of capital, Basel III increases the quantity of capital that banks must hold. By the time participating countries fully implement Basel III in 2019, 24 banks are expected to maintain a total capital ratio of 10.5%, an increase from the 8% requirement under Basel II. As with Basel I and Basel II, banks under Basel III must maintain a minimum total capital ratio of at least 8% of risk-weighted assets. However, under Basel III, after a bank has calculated its 8% capital requirement, it will have to hold an additional capital conservation buffer equal to at least 2.5% of its risk-weighted assets, which brings the total capital requirement to 10.5% of risk-weighted assets. The purpose of the capital conservation buffer is to ensure that banks have sufficient capital levels to absorb asset losses, especially during periods of financial and economic stress. To improve the quality of capital held by banks, Basel III also increases the amount of tier 1 capital that banks are required to hold. As mentioned above, tier 1 capital includes higher quality capital in the sense that it is...

Ch. 12 Study Guide

...Chapter 12 Study Guide – Week 3 Assignment a. The minimum selling price Ed Berg Jr. could quote without decreasing or increasing operating income is $13,800. Variable cost of boat: Direct material $5,000 Direct labor $8,000 Variable overhead (10% x 8000) = $800 $13,8000 Total overhead = $150,000, which is 25% of direct labor. Direct labor = 150,000/0.25= $600,000 Variable overhead rate = variable cost/direct labor = ($150,000-$90,000)/$600,000 = $60,000 divided by $600,000 = 10% b. An increase in income before taxes of $1,200 would result from accepting the offer of 15,000. Customer offer $15,000 Variable costs $13,800 Contribution to profit $1,200 2. The contribution margin approach focuses on the relationship between future costs incurred as a result of taking an order and the revenue the order will produce. The impact of a specific order on profits can be estimated and the lower limits on price can be observed. 3. The major pitfall to the contribution margin approach to pricing is its failure to recognize the fixed costs explicitly. Although they can be overlooked in the short run, the fixed costs must be covered in the long run if the business is to continue. 1. a.Total target return on investment = $25,000,000 x 0.20 = $5,000,000 Target returnon investment per unit = $5,000,000 / 125,000 = $40 Prospective selling price = $240 b.Total target return on investment = $25,000,000 x 0.20 = $5,000,000 Target return......

Child Ch 12

...-Concrete Operational Thought: Piaget's term for the ability to reason logically about direct experiences and perceptions. -During this stage children apply their new reasoning skills to concrete situations, children become more systematic, critical, and educable. - Piaget constructed many experiments in order to explain children's understanding of classification (an example of logical concept). -For instance an examiner would show a child a bunch of nine flowers- seven yellow daisies and two white roses. The examiner makes sure the child knows the words flowers, daisies, and roses. Then the question is asked, "are there more daisies than flowers?" Until about age 7 most say, "more daisies". -Young children cant justify their answers. Some 6 or 7 year olds explain that "because daisies are daisies they cant be flowers." And by age 8 most children say "more flowers than daisies." -Piaget studied transitive inference, the ability to figure out )infer) the unspoken link (transfer) between one fact and another. - For example " John is taller than Jim. Jim is taller than David,. Who is taller, John or David?' Children cant answer the question because they do not have the ability to make implications. They only understand direct statements. -Children cant make such implications until about age 7, when the maturation of the hippo-campus occurs ( a major component of the brains of humans and other mammals. Plays an important role in long-term...

...Chapter 12 7. A peak is the transition from the end of an expansion to the start of a contraction. A trough occurs at the bottom of a recession just as the economy enters a recovery. Contraction is the period from peak to trough. Expansion is the period from trough to peak. 8. a. Monetary policy is expansive and fiscal policy is expansive. This is consistent with a steeply upward-sloping yield curve because, while the expansionary policies stimulate the economy and decrease the short-term rate, high inflation in the future is expected which forces up the yield in longer maturity. 14. Expansionary (i.e., looser) monetary policy to lower interest rates would help to stimulate investment and expenditures on consumer durables. Expansionary fiscal policy (i.e., lower taxes, higher government spending, increased welfare transfers) would directly stimulate aggregate demand. 21. a. Oil well equipment Decline (environmental pressures, decline in easily-developed oil fields) b. Computer hardware Consolidation stage c. Computer software Consolidation stage d. Genetic engineering Start-up stage e. Railroads Relative decline 33. If the economy enters a recession, the firm will have $21 million after-tax profit.

...The Life of Frank Sinatra Ta-Layza C Miller Winston-Salem State University Abstract Francis Albert Sinatra, better known as Frank Sinatra was one of the most famous American singers during his era. He was not only a singer but also a motion-picture actor. Sinatra appeared in fifty-eight films and won an Academy Award for his role in From Here to Eternity. His career started in the 1930s and continued into the 1990s. For music inspiration Sinatra was influenced by Billie Holiday (1915-1959) and Bing Crosby (1903–1977). He knew that he had wanted to become a singer so when the time came he dropped out of high school and began to sing at small clubs. Sinatra tried many different things for example, joined big bands until he decided to break away and become a solo artist. There are many artists who go downhill during their career, but there are not many who re-invent themselves and revive their career more than once. He did not gain the nicknames “The Sultan of Swoon,” “The Voice,” “Ol’ Blue Eyes” and many more for nothing. Frank Sinatra is said to be one of the best and today people still speak about him because of his legacy. Frank Sinatra was not just a singer and actor, he was said to be a legend. Francis (Frank) Albert Sinatra born was on December 12, 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey. He was the only child of Italian immigrants Martin and Natalie "Dolly" Sinatra. Frank had some complications when he was being born. Born at thirteen and a half pounds doctors had to...

...Journal Entry Jennifer Augustus ETH/125 July 17, 2011 April Dreeke Journal Entry It's been three days of rain now, with no end in sight. Sometimes I wonder if this whole island might one day be underwater from all the rain. My friend Irini says that the ocean swallows the water, and the island could never be covered. I listen, but I'm not sure even she believes everything she says. My name is Suri Songhai, and I live in Hawaii, the year is 1922. I came to Hawaii because my family enlisted a nakodo’s (go-between) on my behalf in my homeland of Korea, to find me a husband to take care of me. Many Korean men have been leaving our poor area outside of Okinawa to find more lucrative work. There have been quite a few who leave with the intent of working in Hawaii and building a beautiful home and having a family. There were many stories at the time of how well Korean mother's sons were doing in Hawaii, many pictures of homes, properties, beautiful beaches, gardens and animals. Additionally, a monthly check is sent from the sons to support their families back home in Korea. Many hundreds of young men have left Korea to work in the sugar cane fields in Hawaii. Families never know of the hardship their son's suffer, as the son's would never say; it would do no good to have their families worried or afraid for them. So they put on a happy face for all of the pictures, and sent as much money as they can without starving. Mothers of daughters saw these things and wanted their...

Journal Entry

...To My Future Children, I am writing this journal for you so that you will always know our heritage and where you ancestors came from. We may be United States citizens but our culture and homeland is elsewhere. Somewhere I am hoping you will one day visit. Here is a little bit of history about our dear homeland. The island of Puerto Rico (formerly Porto Rico) is the most easterly of the Greater Antilles group of the West Indies island chain. Located more than a thousand miles southeast of Miami, Puerto Rico is bounded on the north by the Atlantic Ocean, on the east by the Virgin Passage (which separates it from the Virgin Islands), on the south by the Caribbean Sea, and on the west by the Mona Passage (which separates it from the Dominican Republic). Puerto Rico is 35 miles wide (from north to south), 95 miles long (from east to west) and has 311 miles of coastline. Its land mass measures 3,423 square miles, about two-thirds the area of the state of Connecticut. (Green). Puerto Rico was discovered by Christopher Columbus on Novemeber 19th, 1493. The name Puerto Rico, meaning "rich port," was given to the island by its Spanish conquistadors (or conquerors); according to tradition, the name comes from Ponce de León himself, who upon first seeing the port of San Juan is said to have exclaimed, "¡Ay que puerto rico!" ("What a rich port!"). (Green). Puerto Rico is unique in that it is an autonomous Commonwealth of the United States, and its people think of the island...
