FunkieVideo.com, a hypothetical start-up, opened for business on April 1 this year. FunkieVideo.com allows anyone to upload short personal videos, on which viewers then vote each month. The videos with the most votes will receive cash and other rewards, with a “grand prize” in a runoff among the winning monthly videos each year.

You are the founder and president. You have not yet hired an accountant but your bank is asking for an income statement and balance sheet for the first month of operation.

Transactions: 1. You started your company with $100,000 that you raised by selling stock in FunkieVideo.com, Inc. to your family and friends. 2. You purchased 26 high end servers you will need for $3,000 each, paying cash. You believe these devices will last five years before you replace them. At the end of the 5 years, you think you can sell them all for a total of $3,000. 3. Knowing that you would need additional funds, you took a $50,000 loan at 12% annual interest rate from the bank, using the servers as collateral. 4. At the start of the month you spent $2,000 on enough materials used in the production process for sample videos, for which you were invoiced. This is a one month supply of materials. 5. A PR agency charges you $500 for the promotion services (they hope for more business as you grow). You plan on paying the bill next month. 6. Rent for the space you have leased is $1,000 a month, which you paid. 7. The first month, you bill 10 charter clients $200 each for home page ads. 8. You pay your freelance programmer $2,000 at the end of the month. 9. One of your advertisers paid the $200 invoice you sent earlier in the month. 10. You write the check for the interest on the loan owed for the month. 11. You send payment of $300 towards the supplies that you bought earlier in the month.…...

Video System

...1. The description the requirement of the video system is as below. ------------------------------------------------- A video store system runs a series of fairly standard video stores. Before a video can be put on the shelf, it must be cataloged and entered into the video database. Every customer must have a valid customer card in order to rent a video. A customer rents the video for three days at a time. Every time a customer rents a video, the system must ensure that they do not have any overdue videos. If so, the overdue videos must be returned and an overdue fee must be paid before the customer can rent more videos. Likewise, if the customer has returned overdue videos, but has not paid the overdue fee, the fee must be paid before a new video can be rented. Every morning, the store manager prints a report that lists overdue videos. If a video is two or more days overdue, the manager calls the customer to remind him/her to return the video. If a video is returned in a damaged condition, the manager removes it from the video database and may sometimes charge the customer. a. Draw a use case model for the video system described above. Manager Manage customer Add video Rent Return Overdue Print report Delete video charge Customers (10 marks) b. Rental is one of the use cases in the video system.

...violence in Video games in the US Specific purpose: I want to actuate you to oppose promotion of violence in video games. Thesis: Violence in video games should not be promoted because generally violence has a negative influence on a person’s mental thoughts and once a person has such thoughts they are likely to fall victims of violence prior to what they see or do during playing the violent video games. Introduction: How many of you have played Carmageddon-1997, Soldiers of fortune-2000 or related video games? And what effect have they had on you? I know it is hard to point out what effect such video games have had on you but today I am here to tell you the effects of such violent video games and in turn oppose the promotion of violence in video games. First reason why violence should not be promoted in video games is because they increase a person’s aggressive thoughts, feelings and behavior. This comes about when the brain becomes less responsive and in turn leads to increased aggression. Likewise when playing violent video games we tend to identify with the aggressors in the video game and this makes us mimic their characters even when not playing them and this leads to change of behavior and moral practices (Gruffiths 102). The second reason is that violent video games led to most youth deliquescent. Research from Lowa state research has shown that most criminal acts done by youths have a direct relationship to the type of media they are exposed to including violent......

Video Conferencing

...Date: August 28, 2011 To: Pat Caring, Chairperson of the Board of Directors From: Sharie Evans, Director of Communications Subject: Video Conferencing and our Expanding Business Video conferencing is becoming the norm for business communication. Our technology systems are advanced and our need for communication is great. As we expand our business, we become aware of the need to improve our communications systems. We have all used tele-conferencing for communicating when immediate access to a particular person(s) is needed but have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to see and speak at the same time to that individual? Instead of trying to explain a complicated matter verbally over the phone, what would the reality of showing them be like instead? Incorporating a video conferencing system into our daily business endeavours would bring all our offices throughout Canada as close as humanly possible without ever having to leave the comfort of the office (Tredent, 2011). Here is an overview highlighting the benefits of introducing video conferencing into our corporation. Benefits of video conferencing There are many benefits of video conferencing that affect the business and the employee/employer relationship. The norm for young families now is the increased desire for family time, and as we hire fresh associates we must take into consideration the effect of excessive travel required in our job. Travel is expensive and time consuming; car......

...Video Case: Constraint Management at Southwest Airlines Question 1: Analyze Southwest’s passenger boarding process using the Theory of Constraints. Southwest Airlines is an airline company that has set industry benchmarks of having the best turnaround ratios, in an industry where lead time during different operations is very time consuming. Southwest currently boasts a rapid gate-turnaround of 25 minutes or less, and it demonstrates how attention to activities pertaining to ground operations (including cleaning of the aircraft, fuelling and flight preparation) can help the company in being so operationally efficient. Customers rave about low fares, exceptional customer service, and the biggest competitive advantage that Southwest has over its competitors is its’ ability to have a lack of assigned seating that allows customers to choose where they can sit on the plane. Having a turnaround of 25 minutes or less brings about potential areas of bottlenecks; for instance if wheelchair assistance is required for passengers, a bottleneck might arise that may hinder the turnaround time of 25 minutes. Hence, operations managers at Southwest need to carefully evaluate the current processes in order to achieve better efficiency and reach turnaround times even lower than 25 minutes. The Theory of Constraints is a systematic management approach that focuses on actively managing those constraints that impede a firm’s progress towards its goal. Southwest Airlines currently wants to make......

Reflection on Video Vignette – Video 6

...Reflection on video vignette – Video 6 In this reflective essay I will be discussing how my observation of a video vignette can help me to understand and build knowledge of therapeutic communication and also how I can further develop characteristics of therapeutic communication which I see within myself already. I have selected vignette 6, consultation with the midwife in emergency to observe and reflect upon my knowledge and awareness of this subject. In particular I will be focusing on how active listening and clarifying with a patient can affect the communication. The vignette opens in the emergency department of a hospital, a young woman Sally, who has probably suffered a stroke waits with her husband for a midwife to arrive and check the health and status of her fetus as she is 28 weeks pregnant. The midwife enters and introduces herself explaining that she will be listening for the heartbeat of the baby. After establishing that the baby is alive she answers some questions David the husband has and advises she may come back to check on them later in the day. The conversation was carried out in a professional and appropriate tone. The midwife suitably introduced herself and explained to the patient what she would be doing. However after this point I felt the content and relevance of the communication was lost on the patient and her husband. In particular, the way that the midwife did not elaborate on the health of the fetus and that she......

Sampa Video

...G R E G O R A N D R A D E Sampa Video, Inc. 9 - 2 0 1 - 0 9 4 R E V : O C T O B E R 7 , 2 0 0 3 Sampa Video, Inc. was the second largest chain of videocassette rental stores in the greater Boston area, operating 30 wholly owned outlets. Begun in 1988 as a small store in Harvard Square catering mostly to students, the company grew rapidly, primarily due to its reputation for customer service and an extensive selection of foreign and independent movies. These differentiating factors allowed Sampa Video to compete directly with the leader in the industry, Blockbuster Video. But unlike the larger rival, Sampa had no ambitions to grow outside of its Boston territory. Exhibit 1 contains summary financial information on the company as of their latest fiscal year-end. In March 2001, Sampa Video was considering entering the business of home delivery of movie rentals. The company would set up a web page where customers could choose movies based on available in-store inventory and pick a time for delivery. This would put Sampa in competition with new internet-based competitors, such as Netflix.com that rented DVDs through the mail and Kramer.com and Cityretrieve.com that hand delivered DVDs and videocassettes. While it was expected that the project would cannibalize the existing operations to some extent, ......

Video Games

...A video game is an electronic game that involves human interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device. The word video in video game traditionally referred to a raster display device, but it now implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms; examples of these are personal computers and video game consoles. These platforms range from large mainframe computers to small handheld devices. Specialized video games such as arcade games, while previously common, have gradually declined in use. Video games have gone on to become an art form and industry. The input device primarily used to manipulate video games is called a game controller, and varies across platforms. For example, a controller might consist of only a button and a joystick, while another may feature a dozen buttons and one or more joysticks. Early personal computer games often needed a keyboard for gameplay, or more commonly, required the user to buy a separate joystick with at least one button. Many modern computer games allow or require the player to use a keyboard and a mouse simultaneously. A few of the most common game controllers are gamepads, mouses, keyboards, and joysticks. In recent years, additional methods of input have emerged such as camera-based player observation for video game consoles and touch-sensitive screens on mobile devices. Video games typically......

... Do violent video games contribute to youth violence? There was a time when children were always playing outside during sunny days, but that was until video games were invented. Video games provided people with countless hours of entertainment at the comfort of their own home. People enjoyed it because it was a temporary break from reality. People played video games so much that it raised a lot if concerns. One of the concerns is violent video games affecting children’s behavior. Violent video games like Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty have often been blamed for school shootings but do they really affect children’s behavior or are these just hasty generalizations? There are different studies saying that violent video games affect children’s behavior. One study says that there has been an increase in bullying cases because of mature video games that are sold to children. Psychologists say that children may think that violence is a solution for their problems. They will think that the world is a hostile place and violence is normal. ( Harding,2009).  Some kids may also develop trust issues and become aggressive to protect themselves. Christopher Barlett, a psychologist at Iowa State University wanted to test if students become more aggressive after playing a violent video game. He made 47 students play Mortal Kombat for 15 minutes. Afterwards, he tested whether they became more aggressive or not. There were compared to a group who played a nonviolent video game.......

Video Games

...Video games can best be defined as an interactive electronic game that requires players to control the movement of the character by using a controller and gain points and money, to say the least. Almost all video games require a medium for it to process the movements and actions of the player. The medium can be in a form of a game console, a disc where the game information is stored, a computer and sometimes both disc and console put together. For example, the Xbox or the Playstation require both the console and disc where as some games can be downloaded through the internet. The first form of video game that appeared on departmental store shelves was ‘Pong’ where basically the game was ping pong in an electronic appearance. The game had 2 straight lines that represented the paddles and a dot that represented the ball. The rules of the game was similar to its real counterpart, of that if one player did not hit the ball, the other player would gain one point. Before the game was introduced in a home version, the game was in arcades where children and adults would come and play (Winter, 2010). And ever since the video game was created, it would be surrounded by controversies where people always pointed out the negative effects of it just to get their kids off video games. Today, the video game has evolved rapidly and there are games developed for adults and games are played worldwide. Game consoles have evolved through the years and now can be found in all forms such as mobile......

Business problems and decisions Changing rental patterns. households acquired As more cable TV, customers no longer wanted to rent older videos. With the new approach, customers only cared about the new releases. But, at $65 a tape, those costs were high—and after about a month, people moved on to rent the next release, so the store no longer received money to cover the original purchase price. In 1997, CEO John Antioco found a solution. He negotiated a deal with the leading Hollywood studios. Blockbuster would purchase tapes for $6 upfront, then give the studios 40 percent of the rental revenue. Competitors could not match the cost savings. About 2,500 of them (10 percent of the U.S. market) went out of business. понедельник, 5 декабря 11 г. Business problems and decisions But, entertainment technology rolled on.

Video Conversion

...Video Conversions That Make Your Favorite Music Live Forever! Keywords: Vinyl LP to CD, VHS to DVD transfer, audio tape to MP3, video conversions Some of the greatest music ever made may not be available digitally on MP3 or CD except on vinyl. Moreover, if you have already purchased vinyl records, it is not necessary to buy them again on CD. The work can be made simple by just converting your vinyl LP to CD. This will make it easier for you to listen to your classic songs that may have been buried in your attic. In this way you can extend the life of your LPs by having to handle them less so that you can use them for special occasions. Many audiophiles claim that analog vinyl LPs sound better than digital CDs because a digitized sound loses all of the sonic information between its sampling points. But this does not change the fact that CDs have proved themselves to be more durable, popular, portable and also easy to use. Vinyl records degrade with every single play. So it is always better to transfer them to high quality CDs to preserve them forever. Also audio cassettes have a life span of 15 to 25 years. Reel to reel tape has a life expectancy of between 10 to 30 years and after this your precious audio could be lost forever and ever. It is possible to transfer audio from cassettes to your computer where it can be stored in formats such as WAV and MP3 or can be burned to CDs. Thus you can prevent the fading of your sweet memories by listening to them over and......
