Data are based on numeric measurements of some variable, either from a data set comprising an entire population of interest, or else obtained from only a sample (subset) of the full population. Instead of doing the measurements ourselves, we may sometimes obtain data from previous results in published form. 1-3. The weakest is the Nominal Scale, in which categories of data are grouped by qualitative differences and assigned numbers simply as labels, not usable in numeric comparisons. Next in strength is the Ordinal Scale: data are ordered (ranked) according to relative size or quality, but the numbers themselves don't imply specific numeric relationships. Stronger than this is the Interval Scale: the ordered data points have meaningful distances between any two of them, measured in units. Finally is the Ratio Scale, which is like an Interval Scale but where the ratio of any two specific data values is also measured in units and has meaning in comparing values. 1-4.

...Chapter 1 : Case Study 2 Providing any form of compensation could be taken as an offense for thousands of donor families who have already made a benevolent choice of donating organs. The proposed legislation could also end up alienating families who have decided to donate life saving organs regardless of any compensation. Many may think that offering economic benefits, wether directly or indirectly in exchange for organ donations or assigning monetary value to the human body, or body parts, is inconsistent with our values as a society. The proposed legislation could also promote suicidal behavior in people who are in need of monetary help or want to help out their family and loved ones. By offering financial incentives, there could be an increase in crimes such as organ stealing and possibly murder for receiving money for the stolen organ. These are the few issues that this proposed legislation raises. Even though the proposed legislation raises the above mentioned issues, I would still support the the bill. Providing financial incentives for organ donation might seem like it diminishes human dignity, however, it could be something worth looking into. In the normal world, people are naturally resistant to things they are not familiar with or cannot relate to. Economic incentives might force them to rethink their options about organ donation. The proposed legislation may not deter people who believe it is wrong but, it will cause a large population to consider organ...

... three different ways. (1) Direct transfers of money and securities occur when a business (or government) sells its securities directly to savers. Here a business delivers its securities to savers, who in turn provide the firm with the money it needs. (2) Indirect transfers may go through an investment banking house, which underwrites the issue. Here the underwriter serves as a middleman and issuance of the securities. (3) Financial intermediary, such as a bank or mutual fund, is another way in which capital is transferred. Here the intermediary obtains funds from savers in exchange for its own securities. For example, a saver might give dollars to a bank and receive a certificate of deposit, and then the bank might lend the money to a small business, receiving in exchange a signed loan. 1-8 Differentiate between dealer markets and stock markets that have a physical locations. A physical location stock market, such as the New York Stock Exchange and the American Stock Exchange, physically meet and trade in a specific part of a specific building. As for dealer markets, there are “market makers” who keep inventory of the stock. Thess dealers list bid and ask quotes, which are the prices at which they are willing to sell or buy. All bids and asked prices are held in a computerized quotation system but don’t actually match buyers to sellers. Instead, traders much contact a specific dealer to complete the transaction. Nasdaq is one such market. CHAPTER 2 2...

...1. Find a list of all 10 of Zappos corporate values. Pick two of the values and explain how you think those values would influence the way employees do their work. A. Zappos list of 10 corporate values are: Deliver WOW Through Service, Embrace and Drive Change, Create Fun and A Little Weirdness, Be Adventurous, Creative, and Open-Minded, Pursue Growth and Learning, Build Open and Honest Relationships with Communication, Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit, Do More with Less, Be Passionate and Determined, and Be Humble. If I had to pick two values from that list they would be Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit and also Build Open and Honest Relationships with Communication. I believe that these two values would have the biggest impact in developing an organizations culture. Organizational culture has been described as the shared values, principles, traditions, and ways of doing things that influence the way organizational members act and that distinguish the organization from other organizations. Organizational culture has many characteristics but the book uses 3 particular words to define culture: Perception, Descriptive, and Shared. An organizations culture cannot be physically touched or seen, the organization is concerned with how members perceive the culture and how the describe it and finally individuals with different backgrounds or work at different levels of the organization can describe the culture of the organization in similar terms.

...Human Resource Management 10/11/15 Chapter 6 Question 1,2 Blogs and web casts allow for companies to improve their effectiveness of their recruiting for a variety of different reasons. These online blogs and web casts are essentially very cheap if not free which can allow for more money and resources to be spent on other ways to recruit well-qualified employees. Also, many potential employee's use the internet and often look for jobs on the internet so that means if employee are looking for a job online and they come across these blogs then these workers have the ability to reach out to the company themselves. Also, the way a blog or web cast is designed can draw the potential employees to their company if they are well made and are appealing to use which can also give the employee an inward look at the strengths and size of the company depending on how formidable and well-developed these blogs or web casts are. Also, web casts can allow for potential employees who are in another area to be interviewed via these web casts which allow for lower recruitment costs that may be associated with flying a potential employee in and having the employee stay in the area. Also, these technologies can communicate with employee's such as the web blog or web cast that allows for information to be easily exchanged between the two parties in a timely manner so that the employees can receive the information about applying for a position or what not.

Statistic 2 Midterm Exam

...Question 1 (22 marks) A commercial pool management company is seeking to reduce the costs of maintaining swimming pools. The maintenance cost is mostly driven by the amount of chlorine that is needed to keep the water clear and relatively free of germs. The company hired a new graduate from York University (“YorkU”) to analyze how much chlorine is needed. It is believed that the speed at which chlorine is depleted is dependent on the temperature (degrees Fahrenheit) of the water (higher temperatures use chlorine faster); pH level, which is a measure of the acidity of the water (pH ranges from 0 to 14, where 0 is very acidic and 14 is very alkaline; levels around 7.5 use the least chlorine); and weather (sunshine uses up chlorine). The YorkU graduate recorded the percentage of chlorine depletion during 8-hour days, water temperature, pH level and weather condition (mainly cloudy, sunny and partly sunny). Using Excel’s Regression Tool, the YorkU graduate obtained the following Excel output.
