Abstract
This paper will evaluate and demonstrate a manufacturing company options about launching a new product. This will be determined using the payback period that they plan to invest in this adventure. This will be performed by figuring out the company net present value and cash flow to determine if a project should be accepted within a three year payback period.


















The formula that was used to find the payback period was Payback Period = Investment (Total Cost of the Project) / Annual Cash Inflow. The formula used to calculate the net present value is as followed (1+r) ^t. Please click link to view excel spreadsheet for the assignment financial management unit 4 IP excell.xlsx.
In order for a project to be accepted using the Payback rule the project according to Brooks, (2010) states that it is okay to accept a project if the payback period is less than maximum years the company is willing to accept. On that, same note if the payback period is longer than the three year that is required by the company then the project need to be rejected. For example, the payback period for this assignment is at 2.9 which mean that the project can be accepted because it is under the three years that the company requires. By the project being boarder line, I would like more clarity because if a person would round the payback period then the project would be denied.
When evaluating the net present value a person has to take into considers the time value of money, the cash flow and the project life span. When looking at the spreadsheet a person can see that, a company would profit from the new project. The rules for evaluating the net present value stipulates to accept the project if net present value is >= 0. So this mean the project would be accept using the net present value rule.
When considering accepting a project that requires…...

In 2000, Congress passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), which gives a special “T-vista”, that lets victims of sex and labor trafficking to remain temporarily in the U.S., and agree to assist in the investigation and prosecution of their traffickers, after 3 years , the attorney general will give them permanent residence. But it didn’t last long, for the Bush administration had failed to fund its provision in a way that was meaningful. There has been such a lack of traffic investigations, 639 were opened by the Department of Justice between 2001 and 2006. Yet only 360 defendants were charged and only 238 convictions. My assessment on the integrity of this article is that the information is accurate and to the point. The author is legitimate. I definitely find that it is public service information. I will use this information because it is stating why human trafficking is in a slow process of being solved.

There are three major figures that led to this development they are Ivan Pavlov, John B. Watson, and B.F. Skinner. Behaviorism is developed with the order that only observations that satisfied the criteria of the scientific method were to be allowable as evidence. One of the hypotheses many behaviorists hold is that free will is an illusion. As the result of this behaviorism orders that all behavior is determined by a combination of genetic factors and the environment is either through classical or operant conditioning. Classical conditioning is a technique used in behavioral training in which a naturally occurring stimulus is paired with a response. Operant conditioning is a method of learning that occurs...

Unit 1 Ip Addressing Scenario

...UNIT 1: IP ADDRESSING SCENARIO First to start off with this scenario you should think about the design. When designing I would use one floor with a single data closet. This will be able to have one hundred and fifty users. There’s a list of equipment and software that’s needed. A core network, networks for your firewall, server network, voice network, wireless network. Also networks for other services you have not yet identified, like security, cameras, fire, door and video. The subnet range would be one-hundred and forty five from one-hundred and forty six. The network number would be one-hundred and forty four. Also the broadcast number will be one-hundred and forty seven. In this case as far as which class it would be is class B. In the case of the how the IP addresses would be assigned I would consider choosing statically. A static IP address is a number that is assigned to a computer by an internet service provider to be its permanent address on the internet. Also an advantage of having statically IP addresses is that they’re easy to use and less expensive. When it comes to maintaining and obtaining they’re easier to have as well. In answering the question about having one or more network/subnets to be used, I would think that you should use multiple network or subnets just in case you want to expand the size of your IP addresses. If you keep everything at its minimum size or space then that’s all you have to work with. If you make sure that you have extra space,......

...Alysha L. Rhodes May 2, 2012 BUSN-150 Unit 1 Individual Project Lobbying and Bribery are two words many people may come across either involuntarily. After hearing the words so much, one would begin to say “What do those words really mean?” Lobbying according to dictionary-reference.com is, “a group of persons who work or conduct a campaign to influence members”. But on the other hand bribery is described as “, the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of something of value for the purpose of influencing the action of another said action”, according to legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com. The argument that the SLOC members could make where the payments are concerned that are conflicting with the definition of an illegal bribe is described by the FCPA as “an illegal bribe is an illegal payment used to influence an official to award or maintain business”, but within the guidelines of the SLOC they called or disguised their bribes simply as gifts and by doing this it fooled others that actual bribery was taking place. The appropriate punishment for a direct violation of an ethical as well as legal principle should be suspension from the organization and even jail time. If you just hit the involved people on the hand , it is more than likely that they will try it again but just work harder on keeping it quiet. The remedies for the situation should remain within the organization and not leaked out or affect......

Theory of man-made global warming is credible a. Evidence b. Causes c. Effects of global warming 3. Theory of man-made global warming is not credible Global Warming Global warming is a hotly debated theory that states that there is an increase in the earth's average atmospheric temperature (Global Warming). The tedious bickering over if global warming is occurring has stopped with science showing that average temperatures have risen. The argument has now shifted to whether humans are contributing to the warming. Also at debate is whether or not global warming is causing Earth’s climate to change. Both sides of the debate attempt to use science and logic to support their viewpoints. Proponents to the belief that humans are causing global warming attribute the earth’s temperature rise to emissions/pollutants that collect in the atmosphere, trapping the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm up (Global Warming Basics). .The science behind global warming is simple. Global temperatures have shown a temperature increase over the last 100 years, with a very steep increase in the last three decades. Likewise, NASA has shown the average United States temperatures have increased steadily over the same time period. Other scientists and science...

...Running Head: ACADEMIC HONESTY AND PLAGIARISM 1 Running Head: ACADEMIC HONESTY AND PLAGIARISM 2 People are sometimes accused of plagiarism, and some are unaware that they are plagiarizing unintentionally. Therefore, it is important for someone to learn to use the correct citations and paraphrasing to avoid unintentional plagiarism. In a 2007 article Avoiding Unintentional Plagiarism, (Foster 2007) “Avoiding plagiarism is simple, but for most of us, writing is difficult” (page #2). According to Foster, to avoid plagiarism, you must give credit whenever you use another person’s idea, opinion, theory, facts, information and quotations of another person’s spoken words (page #1). Foster is emphasizing that we must use proper citations in order to avoid plagiarism. Therefore, addressing the key elements of writing while to ensure academic honesty. For an example, one element is using the proper citation guidelines, therefore, “if you include a statement that is identical to the original work, either quote the material exactly and use quotation marks, or if you change words to better fit your style, omit the quotation marks but add the page number in the text citation” (page #1). The other element is telling the reader where the information came from, whether it’s referencing the author and article and or where you found it.
