The film is arranged into four parts. Each part is an amalgam of interviews, narration and animated sequences.[3]
Part I: Human Nature
The film begins with an animated sequence narrated by Jacque Fresco. He describes his adolescent life and his discontinuation of public education at the age of 14 and describes his early life influences.
Human behavior and the nature vs. nurture debate is discussed. Robert Sapolsky sums up his opinion of the nature vs. nurture debate in which he refers to it as a "false dichotomy." The film then says that it is neither nature nor nurture that solely shapes human behavior, but the combination of both. Disease, criminal activity and addictions are also discussed. The overall conclusion of Part I is that social environment and cultural conditioning play a large part in shaping human behavior.[citation needed]
Part II: Social Pathology
John Locke and Adam Smith are discussed in regard to modern economics. In Two Treatises of Government, John Locke lays out the fundamental principles of private ownership of land, labor and capital. In The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith uses the term invisible hand as a means to explain how an individual's self-interest benefits society as a whole.[4] A critical view of economic theory is made by questioning the need for private property, money and the inherent inequality between agents in the system. Also seen critically is the need for cyclical consumption in order to maintain market share which results in wasted resources and Planned obsolescence. Critical views of the monetary system are given. According to the movie, the current monetary system will result in default or hyperinflation at some future time.[citation needed]
Part III: Project Earth
As with Zeitgeist: Addendum, the film presents a "resource-based economy" as advocated by Jacque Fresco discussing how human civilization could start from a new beginning in relation to resource types, locations, quantities, to satisfy human demands; track the consumption and depletion of resources to regulate human demands and maintain the condition of the environment.[citation needed]
Part IV: Rise
The current world wide situation is described as disastrous. A case is presented that pollution, deforestation, climate change, overpopulation, and warfare are all created and perpetuated by the socioeconomic system. Various poverty statistics are shown that suggest a progressive worsening of world culture. According to the United Nations, currently 18,000 children a day die from starvation.[5] Also according to the UN, global poverty rates have doubled since the 1970s.[6]
The final scene of the film shows a partial view of earth from space, followed by a sequence of superimposed statements; "This is your world", "This is our world", and "The revolution is now".[citation needed]

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward received "Best Political Documentary" in 2011 from the Action on Film International Film Festival.[citation needed]
A review in the monthly publication The Socialist Standard commented on several aspects of the film. Regarding its production values they stated that the film had a "well rounded feel." In terms of content they criticized the "shaky economic analysis" contained in the second part of the film and noted that Karl Marx had already undertaken a more scientific and thorough critique of capitalism. They went on to state that, "despite these false beginnings the analysis is at least on the right track." Regarding transition to the new system proposed in the film, the review critically noted that in the film "there is no mention of how to get from here to there."[7]
Fouad Al-Noor in Wessex Scene said that the film has more of a focus on solutions than the previous film. Calling it a modern phenomenon, he noted that while there are controversial elements, he challenged those using labels to describe the film to watch the films first.[8]
In her article on the Zeitgeist Movement, published in Tablet Magazine, Michelle Goldberg felt that the film was "silly enough that at times [she] suspected it was [a] satire about new-age techno-utopianism instead of an example of it", but noted the large following of the movement that produced the film, saying "it even seems like the world's first Internet-based cult, with members who parrot the party line with cheerful, rote fidelity".[9]

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward [2011] by director Peter Joseph is a 162 minute film work which continues what the prior two films of the Zeitgeist Film Series started: a critical look at the “Zeitgeist” or ‘Spirit /Awareness of the Time’. A prominent underlying thesis of the Film Series is that a great many notions, beliefs and practices currently engaged in today and assumed as “presupposed”, “given” or seemingly empirical to our societal approaches and values are not only intellectually/historically incorrect but highly detrimental to our personal and social progress and sustainability.Zeitgeist: Moving Forward focuses on the very fabric of the social order: Monetary-Market Economics. While the majority of the world today have slowly come to see some basic flaws in the economic system we share, as large scale debt defaults, inflation, industrial pollution, resource depletion, rising cancer rates and other signposts emerge to bring the concern into the realm of “public health” overall, very few however consider the economic paradigm as a whole as the source. The tendency is to demand reform in one area or another, avoiding the possibility that perhaps the entire system is intrinsically flawed at the foundational level. ZMF presents the case that it is, indeed, the very foundational mechanics of this system that generates the patterns of behavior and unsustainable methods of conduct that are leading to the vast spectrum of detrimental consequences both personal, social, and environmental and the longer they go on, the worse things will become.For example, here are four of the more dominant points with respect to the current system:-The Market System is based on “Cyclical Consumption” and in order for society to continue it’s economic operation through “labor” as the basic starting point there must be perpetual turnover of goods and services and the rate of this turnover cannot be inhibited beyond a certain level. The consequence is that strategic conservation and efficiency (the true measures of the quality of an “economy”) in the ecological, technological and hence/scientific sense become detrimental factors to perpetuating the artificial need for Cyclical Consumption. In other words the less efficient the goods and services produced, the more eventual demand and the more turnover will occur in general to meet those needs. This is the exact opposite of what logic demands for a true economic system, which would need to be based on preservation and maximum sustainability/strategic longevity. The reduction of consumption and waste is a central need for ongoing human survival on a finite planet. We live in an “anti-economy,” in fact.-Similar to the above, the Market System’s use of the immutable “Cost Efficiency” strategy denies the possibility that the most strategically advanced goods are created and hence we exist in a constant state of “efficiency/cultural lag.” It is simply impossible in a competitive system to make the strategic best and the result is excessive waste on many levels - from the waste of labor, to the waste of energy, to the waste of materials. Invention and application is a technical/scientific process and the Market System is simply an interference, which degrades the quality of goods and services.-The Debt Based Monetary System operates by “pyramiding” money to cover outstanding debts; hence inflation and bankruptcy is a natural byproduct as money is constantly scarce in proportion to the debt outstanding at all times. The end result is always deficiency and hence social deprivation in some demographic or region. Balance is impossible for there is never enough money in circulation to cover the interest charges imposed on the currency created. This creates a spectrum of ongoing deficiency, which moves like a cancer between individuals, families, cities, states and countries. This deprivation is truly detrimental to our public health as it guarantees that some win and some lose over time. The word “inhumane” is an understatement and this debt phenomenon is like a cruel social experiment.-There is no Physical Referent for decision-making processes in the Market System and this creates a vast, wasteful inefficiency with respect to the resources/materials/designs to be used and the goods created. “Price Efficiency,” which is often thought of a means of organization that ostensibly “accounts” for resource management (for example, if a resource goes scarce the price rises to offset demand) is a completely decoupled, unscientific notion with no basis in the physical world; hence neglecting the concept of “technical efficiency,” which is the true ecological/economic measure. In other words, we should not be making things based upon what we can “afford.” This is an artificial measure based on nothing tangible. It is based on a decoupled "game" and nothing more. We should be making things based on what the scientific method teaches us as to the best means to manage our conduct.Moreover, unlike the prior films of the series, this film lends more direct support to the data sets of both The Zeitgeist Movement and The Venus Project as Activist and Sustainability organizations respectively.

...What fraction of the days in 2004-2004 failed to meet the targeted daily average hold time of 110 econds? Given that the daily average hold time was normally distributed with a mean of 99.67 and a standard deviation of 24.24, what fraction of days where the call center failed to meet the targeted hold time of 110 seconds would you expect? a) Based on the data in the exhibit 1, the number of days out of target hold time (more than 110 seconds) is 237. And total number of days is 728. Therefore, fraction of days is equal to 237/728 or 0.32. Total number of days | 728 | Number of days within target hold time (110 seconds or less) | 491 | Number of days out of target hold time (more than 110 seconds) | 237 | Fraction of days where the call center failed to meet targeted hold time | 0.3255 | Fraction of days where the call center failed to meet targeted hold time (%) | 33% | b) Based on the X=X+z*σ equation, we find the value of z. X=99.67 σ=24.24 Target hold time = 110 seconds Then, 110 = 99.67 + z * 24.24. From the equation, z is equal to 0.42. Thus fraction of days where the call center failed to meet targeted hold time is equal to 1 - 0.6628 or 0.33. 2.

Littlefield Simulation Report

...simulation, we examined the 50 days of historical data to glean as much information as we could about the operations. We performed some analysis in Excel and created a dashboard to illustrate various data. Specifically, we regressed the prior 50 days of jobs accepted to forecast demand over the next 2 - 3 months within a 95% confidence interval. The yellow and grey lines represent the maximum and minimum variability, respectively, based on two standard deviations (95%). Exhibit 1: Forecasted and actual demand by Day 50 and Day 270 Our two primary goals at the beginning of the simulation were as follows: 1) Eliminate bottlenecks and increase capacity in order to meet forecasted demand 2) Decrease lead time to 0.25 days in order to satisfy Contract 2 and maximize revenue In order to achieve these goals, we would need to know the capacity and throughput time of the entire system. We used the time required by each machine to process a lot to calculate capacity per station and then capacity of the entire production line (380 kits/day or 6 orders/day). In Exhibit 2 we can observe that the capacity of the production line is given by the station that produces the least number of units per day. Exhibit 2: Capacity of the production line The Decisions We decided to work with the maximum variability of demand because there was a penalty for late jobs and because there was no revenue for orders that took more than “x” days. Since the simulator runs at a rate of 34 simulated......

Audit Plan Memo

...PERIODIZATION OF TRAINING Louie Simmons Anyone training for a meet has undergone some form of periodization. Unfortunately, most have misused a system in order to peak for a meet. Progressive gradual overload, or Western periodization, is based on a hypothetical goal. So, at any time, the percent of your contest max may be off by as much as 20%. Many times the lifter is missing weights 3 weeks from the contest. This is because their expectations are too high or possibly too low. Training should be calculated by using a formula based on math, not dreams. I suggest everyone read books on periodization by noted authors such as Tudor Bompa or Vladimir Zatsiorsky. These books explain periodization in terms of micro- and mesocycles. After all, periodization is a reference to the division of training into a yearly plan, or even a 4-year plan, i.e., an Olympic cycle. This system is used for weight lifting, powerlifting, and track and field, and of course should be used for all sports requiring the development of power. The former Soviet Union had so much data on training that they did not know what some top coaches were doing. Mel Siff (`!Supertraining`!) asked how I arrived at our 3-week pendulum system. It was quite similar to that used by the great Soviet Union SHW champion Vasily Alexeev. I stated that after 3 weeks we could not become faster or stronger, so we waved back down and started over. Mel said that Alexeev found the same to be true. So with the help of Russian......

... Knowing how to manage your time is an essential tool to success in life. Time Management has helped me set priorities to meet goals, improve my skills, and helped me reduce stress. Setting priorities to meet goals will give me a clear idea of what I have to do and when it needs to be done. Using time management during an ordinary day helps to reduce the stress and simplifies life. Without having a plan on how to manage time, it can create stress in life and also forgetting important dates and deadlines. By not having some type of organization in life it will create problems and will seem as if there is not enough time in one day to complete daily task. Time management is an essential tool for me to be more organized and accomplish my goals in a timely manner. I have to do all my assignments and be at school on time. I create a list of things that needs to be done every day. Meeting daily goals is much easier when I have a clear idea of what needs to be done. I need to keep my focus on what to do every day. Being more organized has helped me a lot. On Thursday, I meet with my team to do homework.

MPC supplied diagnostics systems and medical devices to several health care locations world-wide. In 1990, the combined sales of disposable devices were over $2 billion, two-thirds took place in Europe. By comparing the past data and forecasting the next five years, MPC needs to ask itself, “How will we meet these demands? Do we have enough capacity to stay in competition with our competitors, and if not, succeed them?” Through quantitative review of each plant individually and yearly production increase, problems have surfaced while viable solutions have been discovered. Summary of European Hypodermic Products: “The key to an effective hypodermic plant is uninterrupted, around–the-clock, in-line operation with high uptime. In particular, efficient utilization of molding operations, where the bulk of the plant’s assets are located, is essential” (Hayes, R., 1995, Harvard Business School) In 1990, the disposable device sector made MPC the world leader accounting for 55% of......

Track in the fall and soccer in the spring. Not really enjoying it, the decision was made to play " real futbol" (soccer) in the fall, leaving the spring sports season open. My friend kept telling me how fun track was, so I decided to give it a try. As the first meet neared, things were going well. I made it onto the 4x100 team making me the third fastest kid on the team. The other members of the relay were Jason Schmidt, Jeremy Willard and Rodney Schmidt. Jason and Jeremy were both the top dogs and Rodney and I were second from the bottom of the barrel. The 400 relay was my best event. We placed in every meet and even took home some medals as the season progressed. As the track year rounded for the home stretch, we had only three more meets to compete in: the Tiger Invitational, regionals, and state. As the Tiger rolled around, there arose a question of whether or not to keep the team together or break it up and give the two seniors a chance to compete in other individual events at regionals. I actually didn't know about this possibility until about five minutes before the race began on Saturday. We were all huddled together preparing for the start.

After that we will take a ride and see why I cannot live with or without science. So hold this should be an interesting journey. As I started my entrance into my home one night after getting off late to find that the light to the front room would not come on. I asked myself two questions; why did the light not come on and what could be wrong with it? Here is where we use the scientific method in our lives without even giving it a second thought.

...of Overnight Mail We all love overnight shipping. It makes our work more efficient and our lives easier. We love it so much that we tend to overuse it. So as with many good things, we need to cut back. Our bills for overnight shipping are at an all-time high, and the CFO has threatened drastic cuts in the budget if these bills are not significantly reduced by the next quarter. I think we can meet this challenge without having budget cuts imposed. I know that subcontractors do not always meet their deadlines, which often makes it necessary for us to ship overnight to our clients.
