Wolves

Introduction

Wolves, the very name polarizes people from one end of the spectrum to the other. From the people that believe they should be shot on site, to the opposite end where environmentalist feels that people hunting wolves should be shot on site. How could you argue with the people most directly affected by the re-introduction of wolves into their area? When your livelihood is constantly threatened by the predators, it drives people to extremes. In our initial settling of this country we drove the other predators (mainly Native American and wolves) from their lands; forcing them to remote outskirts. We nearly killed the wolf off in our drive to seize this vast territory and everything in it. By doing that we threw off nature’s food chain, which caused a ripple effect among other animals and plants directly affected by the wolf. By re-introducing the wolf to its once natural territory, are we trying to right an injustice done by our ancestors long ago? Research has shown that wolves impact society through its reputation as killer of livestock, important link in the eco-system, and pawn in the ongoing debates between Government and Conservationist groups. There’s something spiritual about gazing into a wolf’s eyes. It touches your soul and it changes you. According to Lopez (1978) “It takes your stare and turns it back on you. People suddenly want to explain the feelings that come over them when confronted with that stare-their fear, their hatred, their respect, their curiosity” (p4).You cannot deny the power and strength that lies in that stare, although we share different physical forms, we can still aspire to the virtues of

Lat - Living Apart Together

...LAT - Living Apart Together LAT is the non-traditional way of being together in a marriage. Traditionally, a married couple lives together, but the LAT-lifestyle is a whole different kind of marriage. This lifestyle ‘LAT’ is becoming very popular. How can this be? Does living apart from your loved one make life easier or harder? Can LAT really improve a relationship or does it have the opposite effect? Why do these LAT-couples choose to live apart? “Jobs and places of work contribute heavily to this choice”: Career before family is becoming a very popular trend, so the LAT-lifestyle gives a huge opportunity to put your career first. Not living together gives couples a bigger space individually , so they can focus on the activities they like to do without annoying their partner. Even though the married couple may love each other very much, they are still two different people that can have very different opinions. This space can also make the partner much more interesting how much fun it was to get ready for the date..”: Being together all the time can become a boring thing, so getting excited to go on dates like in the beginning of a relationship may keep the exciting spark that a new couple has. LAT also shows a lot of trust: Needing to trust your loved one to do the right thing, without you giving your advice all the time or trusting them notto have an affair. Living two different places can also be very exciting, especially if they live in two very dissimilar places. So...

Lat Task 2

...Task 317.1.5-03-05 March 6, 2013 Executive A has a personality is described as fierce driven and ambitious. After taking over as the CEO of the company the company has had a complete transform with stock up at 128%. The executive does not take credit for the company doing so well; instead he is fast to accept the responsibility of poor results or mistakes resulting from the company. This personality is consistent with a level 5 leadership style. According to Robins and Judge, a level 5 leader is “fiercely ambitious and driven, but their ambition is directed toward the company rather than themselves.” This describes executive A personality. Leader B would best be described as a transactional leader. According to Robins and Judge, a transactional leader is someone who guides or motivates their followers in the direction of established goals by clarifying role and task requirements. This describes leader B, as goals were established by clarifying the roles and task requirements. A chain of command is also recognized by selecting a subordinate to delegate tasks. Corrective action is enforced for bad performance and leader B rewards employees for good performance. According to Robins and Judge, a transformational leader is someone who inspires followers to transcend their own self-interests and who are capable of having profound and extraordinary effect on followers. This is the type of leader, leader C is. Leader C believes in the goals and missions set up by...

...as goodwill. Long-term debt and other obligations of an acquired company should be valued for consolidation purposes at their fair value. On January 1, 2010, Lester Company purchased 70% of Stork Corporation's $5 par common stock for $600,000. The book value of Stork net assets was $640,000 at that time. The fair value of Stork's identifiable net assets were the same as their book value except for equipment that was $40,000 in excess of the book value. In the January 1, 2010, consolidated balance sheet, goodwill would be reported at $177,143. When the value implied by the purchase price of a subsidiary is in excess of the fair value of identifiable net assets, the workpaper entry to allocate the difference between implied and book value includes a 1. debit to Difference Between Implied and Book Value. 2. credit to Excess of Implied over Fair Value. 3. credit to Difference Between Implied and Book Value. c. 3 If the fair value of the subsidiary's identifiable net assets exceeds both the book value and the value implied by the purchase price, the workpaper entry to eliminate the investment account debits Difference Between Implied and Book Value.

...Has Asian Industrialization had a Negative Impact on the Global Marketplace? An Investigation into the Effect of Industrialization of Select Markets and their Impact on the Global Marketplace. Has Asian Industrialization had a Negative Impact on the Global Marketplace? The global marketplace has seen a large shift in buying power in recent years. Former world leaders have seen their influence on the marketplace dwindle as industrialization begins to take hold in countries previously not seen as traditional powerhouses. Worldwide, prices have risen at a rate never before seen. With a burgeoning population of middle class workers, Asia as a whole, and China and India specifically, have fueled this pricing explosion. Research shows that the development of these former 3rd world countries is responsible for a large increase in global pricing due to the high demand for steel, oil, and agricultural products. One major industry which has been affected by this shift is the steel industry. The demand for steel along with the decreased supply has caused prices to increase by 25 to 45 percent in the US market. (Van Der Schans, 2007). Several factors have coincided to deal a damaging blow to the US steel market. Firstly, China and India have become major players in the steel industry, accounting for the consumption of over 25 percent of the worldwide steel supply. Cooney found that, “China has become both the world’s largest steelmaker and steel consumer.” (2006). China’s...

Stawki podatku mogą ponadto różnić się w zależności od zakresu, branż, czy jurysdykcji, w jakiej spółka działa. Niniejszy dokument ma służyć jedynie jako punkt wyjścia do tematyki systemu podatku dochodowego od osób prawnych w Chinach. 1. Ramy prawne 1.1.

Name your file as follows. Lastname_hw1.pdf - like roman_hw1.pdf A Note about calculations in general, please read. Before turning your work in, it is important to ask yourself whether a calculated answer is within the realm of possibilities, independent of how detailed the calculations required to determine the answer were. For example, if I asked you how long it would take a frozen turkey sitting on your counter to thaw, you could do some fairly complicated calculations. You could consider factors like the temperature of the room, the weight of the turkey, the shape of the turkey, skin or no skin, the humidity, the heat capacity of turkey meat, etc...... If you did a lot of math and got an answer of either 4 seconds or 2 months, you should probably suspect you did something wrong. If your answer was 8 hours, that could seem reasonable given what you've likely observed with popsicles and snowmen. So, the point is, you have to apply some common sense and check your answer. You'll be given more credit on the HW (and in life in general) for admitting your answer seems wrong based on simple logic. Explaining your logic and admitting you got tripped up by the calculation is better than standing by an answer that really make no sense at all.

Egt 1 Task 1

...EGT 1 Task 1 A. 1. The profit maximization approach used when total revenue and total cost are compared is the largest positive gap or profit gained between total revenue less total cost. In the table provided the largest profit or profit maximization would be $540. When you produce 8 items profit is at its highest point. To calculate total revenue you take the price times the quantity and to calculate total cost you take the sum of variable and fixed costs. 2. The profit maximization approach used when marginal revenue and marginal cost are compared is to take the marginal revenue less the marginal cost. In this process you look at how each additional unit affects total revenue and total cost. Marginal revenue is equal to the change of total revenue divided by change in quantity and Marginal cost is equal to the change in total cost divided by change in quantity. Once marginal cost exceeds marginal revenue it is not effective to produce the product and there is no longer a profit maximization. The profit maximization approach when using marginal revenue and marginal cost is to make as many products as you can until marginal cost equals marginal revenue. B. 1. Marginal revenue it the change in total revenue divided by the change in quantity. To get total revenue so that you can calculate marginal revenue you need to take the price times quantity less total cost. Marginal revenue becomes elastic and stays constant when there is perfect competition. But marginal revenue usually...

...Running Head: Children's Literature Task 1 1 Children;s Literature Task 1 Arthur Carroll Western Governor's University Children's Literature Task 1 2 Children's Literature Task 1 It is well known that the world is filled to the brim with a rich history in athletics, education, science, politics, and the arts. What is not common knowledge is the history and richness of children's literature and how it eventually became what it is today. Just like most things, what we now know as children's literature is nothing like what it was originally, it has transformed into something else entirely. Nonetheless, it has as colorful a history as it does some of it's own books. Before children's literature was ever even written down it was given to children in a less tangible way; orally. Prior to publishers like Scholastic and Golden Books existence, the technology to write books was long and tedious, especially if the author was trying to make many copies. So instead, children's literature was told out loud where many could hear it at once and the time factor for preparation was at a minimum. Once authors had better technology to help simplify the process of physical writing, oral literature transformed into written literature. It wasn't always computers or even typewriters though, written used to literally mean written. Like the transformation from mouth to pen, pen evolved to......

Explain why the values 102 and 00102 are equivalent. The values are equivalent because it’s de same numerical meaning. Everything else after the one is a zero and there is no need to show the zero. 3. Based on the breakdown of the decimal and binary systems in this lab, describe the available digit values and the first four digits of a base 5 numbering system. You can use the binary system as a reference, where the available digit values are 0 and 1 and the first four digits are 1, 2, 4, and 8. In base 5, we use only 5 digits 0, 1, 2, 3 , and 4. The first four digits would be 1, 5, 25, and 125 4-Using the Internet and the Help files in Excel, explain why creating a converter from decimal to binary would be more difficult to construct.
