Aggressive Behavior
1. This was an interesting article that talks about if there a correlation between playing video games and aggressive behavior between young kids. I believe this article is true about how kids that play violent video games tend to be more aggressive compared to kids that didn’t in a controlled environment. My main question about this article is that they prove that there is a strong correlation between the studies but they also left out other factors like the child’s development of social development and they didn’t have an even amount kids in the same age group so the fact that they used more kids in one age group might of effect the study in their favor to get the results that violent video game do tend to lead to aggressive behavior. Also, the interesting things that I think that they should do is what are the effects long term and short term.
2. I learned that girls in game condition was not related to aggression but, specifically for boys, playing a violent video game lead to more aggression than watching television violence. Which also comes into the development of each sex because boys are more open to the environment of aggression and girls on the other hand are more of the non-aggression and would rather place with dolls. Boys are more open to be aggressive with each other most because of gender roles and the development of hormones. Another fact that I haven’t paid that much attention to because of the acceptance of technology is that the time children spend on media is ten times as much as the time they spend on reading for pleasure. The violent nature of the television programs and video games to which children are exposed is of specific concern.
3. This article relates the development of child as a whole because violent video games are a more acceptable thing that is available to more and more kids that is a developing industry that…...

...The chapter 14 case talks about Amazon, and describes its way until became one of the largest companies of online shopping, and Kindle as one of the first generation of Kindle. Amazon according to the case has no roof over its head which would mean that technically there’s not a particular shopping store where you can go and buy something. But is online shopping, and where the sellers and buyers are connected with each-other through phone calls, website, and emails as a particular way to connect every one of us. As of now Amazon is one of the biggest online sellers with almost $32.4 in 2010. Only with the amount of money that Amazon profits, we can see that it is a very big company, and pretty much the biggest one. Today there are a high amount of people that would buy something they need online rather than shopping, as of losing time, while they can do something else. 1. Describe Amazon’s product service mix. Which areas of Amazon’s operations are characteristic of a manufacturing organization? Which areas are characteristic of a service organization? How do both areas relate to the marketing of Kindle and Kindle-related products? The four characteristics that would show the differences between manufacturing and service organization are: • Goods. Here a key difference between service firms and manufacturers is the tangibility of their output. In this case the fact that Amazon sells products and goods to customers, are things tangible so we can see and touch would make...

Deming's 14 Pts

...Deming's 14 points The 14 points are a basis for transformation of [American] industry. Adoption and action on the 14 points are a signal that management intend to stay in business and aim to protect investors and jobs. Such a system formed the basis for lessons for top management in Japan in 1950 and in subsequent years. The 14 points apply anywhere, to small organisations as well as to large ones, to the service industry as well as to manufacturing. They apply to a division within a company. 1. Create constancy of purpose toward improvement of product and service, with the aim to become competitive and to stay in business, and to provide jobs. 2. Adopt the new philosophy. We are in a new economic age. Western management must awaken to the challenge, must learn their responsibilities, and take on leadership for change. 3. Cease dependence on inspection to achieve quality. Eliminate the need for inspection on a mass basis by building quality into the product in the first place. 4. End the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag. Instead, minimise total cost. Move towards a single supplier for any one item, on a long-term relationship of loyalty and trust. 5. Improve constantly and forever the system of production and service, to improve quality and productivity, and thus constantly decrease costs. 6. Institute training on the job. 7. Institute leadership. The aim of supervision should be to help people and machines and gadgets to do a better job. Supervision......

Chapter 14

...Chapter 14: SOLUTIONS TO TEXT PROBLEMS: Quick Quizzes 1. When a competitive firm doubles the amount it sells, the price remains the same, so its total revenue doubles. 2. The price faced by a profit-maximizing firm is equal to its marginal cost because if price were above marginal cost, the firm could increase profits by increasing output, while if price were below marginal cost, the firm could increase profits by decreasing output. A profit-maximizing firm decides to shut down in the short run when price is less than average variable cost. In the long run, a firm will exit a market when price is less than average total cost. 3. In the long run, with free entry and exit, the price in the market is equal to both a firm’s marginal cost and its average total cost, as Figure 1 shows. The firm chooses its quantity so that marginal cost equals price; doing so ensures that the firm is maximizing its profit. In the long run, entry into and exit from the industry drive the price of the good to the minimum point on the average-total-cost curve. [pic] Figure 1 Questions for Review 1. A competitive firm is a firm in a market in which: (1) there are many buyers and many sellers in the market; (2) the goods offered by the various sellers are largely the same; and (3) usually firms can freely enter or exit the market. 2. Figure 2 shows the cost curves for a typical firm. For a given price (such as P*), the level of output that maximizes profit is...

14 Fayols

...The Principles of Management Management principles are statements of fundamental truth. These principles serve as guidelines for decisions and actions of managers. They are derived through observation and analysis of events which managers have to face in practice. Fayol developed 14 Principles of management 1. Division of Work - The specialization of the workforce according to the skills of a person , creating specific personal and professional development within the labour force and therefore increasing productivity; leads to specialization which increases the efficiency of labour. By separating a small part of work, the workers speed and accuracy in its performance increases. This principle is applicable to both technical as well as managerial work. 2. Authority and Responsibility- The issue of commands followed by responsibility for their consequences. Authority means the right of a superior to give order to his subordinates; responsibility means obligation for performance. This principle suggests that there must be parity between authority and responsibility.. They are co-existent and go together, and are two sides of the same coin. 3. Discipline- Discipline refers to obedience, proper conduct in relation to others, respect of authority, etc. It is essential for the smooth functioning of all organizations. 4. Unity of Command - This principle states that every subordinate should receive orders and be accountable to one and only one superior. If an employee......

14 Points

...Deming's 14 points W Edwards Deming was an American statistician who was credited with the rise of Japan as a manufacturing nation, and with the invention of Total Quality Management (TQM). Deming went to Japan just after the War to help set up a census of the Japanese population. While he was there, he taught 'statistical process control' to Japanese engineers - a set of techniques which allowed them to manufacture high-quality goods without expensive machinery. In 1960 he was awarded a medal by the Japanese Emperor for his services to that country's industry. Deming returned to the US and spent some years in obscurity before the publication of his book "Out of the crisis" in 1982. In this book, Deming set out 14 points which, if applied to US manufacturing industry, would he believed, save the US from industrial doom at the hands of the Japanese. Although Deming does not use the term Total Quality Management in his book, it is credited with launching the movement. Most of the central ideas of TQM are contained in "Out of the crisis". Dr.Deming's famous 14 Points, originally presented in Out of the Crisis, serve as management guidelines. The points cultivate a fertile soil in which a more efficient workplace, higher profits, and increased productivity may grow. 1. Create and communicate to all employees a statement of the aims and purposes of the company. 2. Adapt to the new philosophy of the day; industries and economics are always changing. 3. Build......

Dream Song 14

... English 1102-611 13 October 2015 Dream Song 14- John Berryman John Berryman lived a life full of demons. He is viewed as a very cynical, disturbed man who reflected his attitude into his writing. From the beginning of his life he faced emotional distress ranging from family issues, to marriage issues, to substance abuse. A traumatic beginning to his life not only negatively affected him; it also influenced his long and successful career in writing and teaching. Through his hardships, he created one of the most famous compilations of poems in history, The Dream Songs. These poems are littered with fresh and complex styles of writing, including his famous technique of using dialogue and personal revelation. Although he accomplished amazing things in the literary world, won awards and was a major arts figure in the world, he continued to struggle with himself. His never ending despair stemmed from the suicide of his father when he was young, which although very sad, shaped his life and his death to come. The Dream Song series is a modified and published version of his dream analysis treatment during rehab. By analyzing and annotating one of his most famous Dream Songs, Dream Song 14, and studying the major events of his life, it is frighteningly apparent how the effects of paternal suicide, emotional and sex abuse, and alcoholism shaped his life, his...

...Chapter 14 2. What is the total market value of the firm without leverage? a. Without leverage = 2*2 m = 4,000,000 million (total market value) b. Suppose you borrow 1 million. According to MM, what fraction of the firm’s equity will you need to sell to raise an additional 1 million you need? “ As long as the firms choice of securities does not change the cash flows generated by its assets must have the same total market value” ( Berk & DeMarzo, 2010, pg. 455). Therefore, the total value of the firm is still 4 million dollars. Because they borrowed 1 million they have 1 million of debt and 3 million of equity. 1/3 = 33% of equity must be sold in order to raise a million dollars. c. What is the value of your share of the firm’s equity in cases a and b ? Case A: 50% * 4 million = 2 million Case B: 2/3 * 3 million = 2 million 4a. Expected return without leverage: .5 * 450 + .5 * 200 = 325 / 250 = 1.30 expected return without leverage = 30% 4b. What will be the market value of its equity just after the dividend is paid according to MM? E + D = 250 ; D = 100 ; E + 100 = 250 ; 250 – 100 = 150 ; E = 150 4c. What is the expected return of MM stock after the dividend is paid in part b? .5 * 450- 105 + .5 (200 – 105) = 172.50 + 47.5 = 220 /150 = 1.4666666 The expected return of MM stock after dividend is paid would be 46.67 14a.
