Ryan and Megan’s Story

A. Ryan mentioned a semen discharge. What four glands contribute to semen?
a. Seminal fluid is a liquid that consist of secretions of the seminiferous tubules, seminal vesicles, prostate and bulbourethral glands.

B. One reliable birth control method that Ryan is unlikely to select at this time in his life is a vasectomy. What is a vasectomy and what happens to a man’s sperm after the procedure?
A vasectomy is a surgery that cuts the vas deferens, which is the tube that carries sperm from the testicles to the urethra. After a successful vasectomy sperm is unable to travel out of the testes.

C. Why do sperms have at most 48 hours to live after ejaculation?
a. The middle piece contains mitochondria arranged in a spiral, which provide ATP for locomotion of the sperm to the secondary oocyte and for sperm metabolism. Seminal fluid is alkaline and the inside of the female vagina is acidic causing destruction of the sperm. They are usually unable to live in the acidic environment for more than 48 hrs.

D. Megan is hoping to become pregnant someday. When the day comes, in which part of her body would fertilization of her secondary oocyte likely occur?
a. Fertilization usually occurs in the uterine tubes after ovulation has occurred. This usually takes place in the ampulla of the uterine tube.

E. How could damage to Megan’s uterine tubes complicate fertilization or pregnancy?
a. If there is scar tissue as a result of infections, sperm could possible not reach the oocyte for fertilization. If it does, and scar tissue is present the oocyte could implant with uterine tube or pelvic cavity.

F. The Pap smear that Megan mentions is a routine exam of the female reproductive tract through biopsy of the vagina and cervix. Why is the cervix an important location to test?
a. The cervix is vulnerable to several health…...

Solvgen Case 10-1

...Case 10-1 SolvGen Inc. In this case study, we deal with two separate agreements between SolvGen and Careway Pharma that are being audited for the possible sale of SolvGen to Direct Drugs, Inc. First, is the research and development agreement between SolvGen and Careway. And second, is the license and distribution agreement between the aforementioned. These agreements are both written and contractually binding and are within the scope of Multiple Deliverable Arrangements. The deliverables for the arrangements described in the case study are: a five-year research and development agreement and a five-year license and distribution agreement. For the five-year research and development agreement, SolvGen would use its best efforts to further develop proprietary instrument systems that have been under development for nearly 18 months and are expected to be ready for commercial launch in the near future. Under the license and distribution agreement, SolvGen will be paid for proprietary instrument system as it is purchased by Careway. The exclusive negotiation payment - $ 1million (paid in December 1, 2005) cannot be recognized in 2005 because it is not yet earned. The contract will start in 2006 that’s when the amount will start being spread over the 5 year life contract. SolvGen can only recognize $ 200,000 in 2006. The contract signing payment - $ 2 million (paid January 1, 2006) can be recognized over 5 year life of contract because even though they are nonrefundable......

Chapter 10 Real World Case Study: Dashboard vs. Scorecard

...CHAPTER 10 1. What is the difference between a “dashboard” and a “scorecard”? Why is it important that managers know the difference between the two? What can they learn from each? A dashboard is a container for various types of reports, including scorecards. It might consist of one or more pages, and it might have more than one module on each page. The modules are called Web Parts. A typical dashboard might contain a scorecard, an analytic report, and an analytic chart, but many variations are possible. Some dashboards provide users with a high level of interactivity, and others display static images. The degree and kind of interactivity depend on the program that is used to create the dashboard. Each Web Part maintains a connection to its data source. The Web Parts can function independently of one another, or they can be linked together, so that what you click in one determines what you can see in the others. Together, the reports provide a clear picture of current organization performance. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/what-is-the-difference-between-a-dashboard-and-a-scorecard-HA101772797.aspx A scorecard measures performance against goals. Typically, a scorecard displays graphic indicators that visually convey the overall success or failure of an organization in its efforts to achieve a particular goal. The scorecard is based on a collection of key performance indicators (KPIs), each of which represents an aspect of organizational......

Frontline is currently struggling with the cost of health care insurance * Currently offers their employees fee-for-standard, 300 deductibles, 20 percent co insurance, FSA Flexible spending account * After attending and speaking with several experts at the national conference on compensation on Health Savings Account, she thinks an HSA will be a viable option for Frontline. * She believes that making such change from standard fee-for-service plan to HSA with high- deductible insurance plan could result in significant cost savings for the company.

The (C-1) form specifically asked the applicant whether or not he/she had any relatives employed at the company, to which Mr. Walton answered “no”. He was hired by Manatee Power Plant on April 30, 1999 where he worked until his release on November 2, 2006. Mr. Walton was discharged after the company learned in October 2006 that Mr. Walton did, indeed, have a relative employed with the company. At the time of the application, Mr. Walton did not know that his uncle, Bill Williams, worked for the company as well and there is no dispute regarding this fact and no question about Mr. Walton’s truthfulness on the application.

Nt1210 Case Study 10

...In this case study we have been asked to create a report about disaster recovery and the best practices involved for such an incident. There are many types of disaster recovery systems that can be employed. For our purposes I will talk about two of the currently industry standards. First is the "Cloud-Based" disaster recovery. In this type of recovery, SMPR would be required to lease network storage space from a cloud-based DR vendor and SMPR would set up proprietary backup software that would communicate with the vendors system and remotely and securely store SMPR's backup data and network configurations on the Cloud, or in other words in a server farm of hosted SAN devices. This option is typically a little more cost effective because the vendor has to maintain the hardware for storage, and ensure that it can be accessed within an agreed upon SLA. The next method of disaster recover we will talk about is called a Co-Location shorted to Co-Lo in the industry. In a Co-location setting, you pay rental space for a building, you then bring in your own hardware and setup and manage your own connections to this location for your data backups and storage. Typically in a Co-Lo, you will need to worry about how much power you will use, how much rack space will be required, and how much bandwidth you will need between the SMPR offices and Co-Lo. A Co-Location typically has many redundant systems to ensure that your servers do not lose power, or data connection, they generally have......

Case Study Case Study Case Study

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

...Codeword is a medium-size firm that designs and manufactures electronic systems for the mass transit industry. It competes with other firms to win contracts to provide such systems. When Codeword receives a contract, it creates a project to complete the work. Most projects range from $10 million to $50 million in cost and from one to three years in duration. Codeword can have six to twelve projects going on at any one time, in various stages of completion- some just starting and other finishing. Codeword has a handful of project managers who report to the general manager; other people report to their functional manager. For example, the electronics engineers all report to the manager of electrical engineering, who reports to the general manager. The functional manager assigns particular individuals to work on various projects. Some people work full-time on a project, whereas other split their time among two or three projects. Although individuals are assigned to work for a project manager on a specific project, administratively they still report to their functional manager. Jack Kowalski has been with the company for about 12 years, since graduating from college with a B.S. in electronic engineering.

...Accounting Theory Case Study 10.2 Accounting for frequent flyer points: fact or fiction ? Maylinda Irmayanti (023111146) Windy Ayu Wulandari (023111239) Case Study 10.2 Accounting for frequent flyer points: fact or fiction? Accounting requirements under IFRS have changed the way airlines account for frequent flyer points. In the past, the cost/provision approach accounting practices were used. Under this method, the upfront sale of points to bank, credit card companies, mortgage brokers, and general retailers was recorded as revenue in the income statement at the time of sale. The expense related to the sale, that is the cost of travel, was recorded at a later period, when the airline provided the travel service, or gave up the ‘free’ seat. The Australian Financial Review (AFR) reported in December 2004 that the sale of points to third parties, rather than giving them away to loyal customers, made the schemes profitable for Qantas and major network carriers in the United States and Europe. The newspaper claimed that when Qantas sought additional debt or equity capital, it would have to treat its frequent flyer point liability on the same basis as other global firm, in the name of equality and transparency. Qantas responded immediately to the AFR article. The company stated that it establishes a liability and takes a charge to the profit and loss account for the cost of providing a ‘free’ seat at the time the frequent flyer......

This works best for the company so that they can ensure that they enough overall sweaters on hand. Since the sweaters are customized in house they do not need to be concerned with keeping inventory of specific schools. They should continue to use the aggregate demand forecasting because to order by school the forecasting would not meet the suppliers minimum order quantity of 5000 and it would take too long to get the sweaters based on the 20 week lead time as well. The current system gives them flexibility in the order delivery as they can order large quantities and they can customize them according to the orders. 3.

...significant renovation. LOI plans to sell 10 of these warehouses within the next five years and plans not to demolish or renovate the warehouse prior to disposal. LOI will never effectively settle the obligation to remove the asbestos from the warehouse, there is no ARO that needs to be recognized due to availability of a legally abiding contract to sell the warehouse in the next six months to a third party with a standard provision allowing the buyer to require LOI to remove the asbestos prior to the date of the sale. From previous transactions with the same third party, LOI is never allowed to remove the assets from the warehouse. Moreover, there is no sufficient information provided in ASC 410-20-25-10 to determine the fair value of the ARO due to the uncertainty of LOI to require removing the asbestos. This also applies to two of the warehouses residing in areas with no laws in place requiring special handling and disposal of the asbestos on building demolition or renovation. Lastly, the remaining 13 warehouses with asbestos residing in states with special asbestos handling and disposal laws, LOI has owned and operated for more than 50 years only incurring just minor renovations and repairs and has no plans in future to make significant renovations or demolish except for minor repairs and maintenance. The problem with ARO is the presence of an indeterminate settlement data as in ASC 410-20-25-10. ASC 410-20-25-10 According to ASC 410-20-25-10, instances may occur......
