...BUSN-379 Course Project – Part 1 Task 1: Assessing loan options for AirJet Best Parts, Inc. The company needs to finance $8,000,000 for a new factory in Mexico. The funds will be obtained through a commercial loan and by issuing corporate bonds. Here is some of the information regarding the APRs offered by two well-known commercial banks. Bank APR Number of Times Compounded National First Prime Rate + 6.75% Semiannually Regions Best 13.17 Monthly 1. Assuming that AirJet Parts, Inc. is considering loans from National First and Regions Best, what are the EARs for these two banks? Hint for National Bank: Go to the St. Louis Federal Reserve Board’s website (http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/). Select “Interest Rates” and then “Prime Bank Loan Rate”. Use the latest MPRIME. Show your calculations. (15 pts) A. National First (MPRIME 3.25%) +6.75% = 10% Semiannually EAR = (1+.10/2) ^2 – 1 which is 10.25 B. Regions Best Rate is 13.17% Monthly EAR = (1+.1317/12) ^12 – 1 which is 13.99 2. Based on your calculations above, which of the two banks would you recommend and why? Explain your rationale. (15 pts) Based on the EAR calculations made in requirement 1, I recommend borrowing from National First. This is because Nation First APR of 3.25% + 6.75% = 10% semiannually is better then Regions Best of 13.17% monthly. 3. AirJet Best Parts, Inc. has decided to take a $6,950,000 loan being offered by Regions Best at 8.6% APR for 5 years.......

Coca-Cola which Estimated Elasticity is -1.22 I believe is elastic because it has a greater then 1 Cigarettes which Estimated Elasticity is -0.25 I believe is inelastic because it has less than 1 in absolute value. Beer which Estimated Elasticity is -0.23 I believe is inelastic because it has less than 1 in absolute value. Gasoline which Estimated Elasticity is -0.06 I believe is inelastic because it has less than 1 in absolute value. Explain the implications of those classifications on tax revenue collections when the per-unit tax increases as opposed to decreases. Tax revenue collections will be in the following order: First is Gasoline then Beer next is Cigarettes then Coca cola lastly Books The more the elasticity the less the revenue collected. Using those classifications, make some assumptions regarding tax incidence. For instance, will buyers or sellers pay a larger portion of the tax per unit? Explain. Alike the weight on buyers’ tax accepted by them is more for goods that have inelastic demand. Based on the elasticity classifications their effect on tax revenue, and tax incidence, which goods would the government prefer to tax? The Government tax goods......

...Lead Economist Laura From: Alex Anderson Subject: Project Part 1 After some research, I have come to a series of conclusions that I will explain in the document. To understand what type of economy the United States has, first we must consider the three types of economic outlines. These are central, market, and mixed economies. By taking a closer look at how each type of economy operates, and looking at examples of each, we can come to an understanding of what best fits the model of the United States. First, we will take a closer look at a central economy. This type of economy has its grounding in government rulings. At first description this sounds as though it would fit properly for the United States government as the government regulates taxes and tariffs on trade. However, in the case of a central economy system, the government makes all the economic decisions, preventing people (individuals or firms) from being able to affect the current market within the bounds of the system. This also has a very high chance to have a black market for many different good due to high government control. For example, if a certain good (milk) were to be set a low price, those who produce the milk may save some of it to sell to a black market for a better price on their good. Likewise, this control can be used in conjunction with knowledge of the average budget to fix prices so only people working for the highest power parts of the government can have excess capital to spend......

...Course Project Part 1 Task 1: Assessing loan options for AirJet Best Parts, Inc. (1) EAR of National First Bank loan is 10.25%. APR = 3.25 (Prime Rate) + 6.75 M = 2 (Compounded semiannually) Formula: EAR = (1+APR/M)^M – 1 Solution: 0.1025 = (1+.10/2)^2 – 1 EAR of the Regions Best Bank loan is 13.99%. APR = 13.17 M = 12 (Compounded monthly) Formula: EAR = (1+APR/M)^M – 1 Solution: 0.1399 = (1+.1317/12)^12 – 1 (2) I recommend using National First Bank because the APR and the EAR are lower than Regions Best, which will result in paying back less interest over the course of the loan. (3) The monthly payment amount of the loan is $147,357.20. I agree with this decision because APR and EAR would be lower than National First resulting in paying back less interest over the duration of the loan. I got this answer with the following information and formula in Excel: PV= $6,950,000 r= 8.6% =PMT(rate,nper,PV,FV) m= 5 (years) Task 2: Evaluating Competitor’s Stock (1) The competitor I chose is Raytheon and the rate of return assuming the dividend growth rate is 5% would be 7.57%. Raytheon’s latest dividend amount was obtained from Yahoo Finance and used with the following formula. g = 5% R = ? D1 = 2.2 (dividend amount) P0 = $85.28 (stock price) Formula: R = D1/P0 + g Solution: R = 2.2/85.28 + .05 = .0757 = 7.58%   (2) Current share price of Air Jet Best Parts, Inc. is $23.06.

...To create an effective multi-layer security plan, all seven of the domains of the IT infrastructure must be addressed. An improvement on each of the domains will help to fight against an attacker. For this part of the project we will address five of the domains. Probably the best place to start beefing up security is with the user domain. Most attacks on security are from users. You cannot allow users to have simple passwords. A complex password is paramount to defending the user domain. A complex password is at least eight characters, uses a mix of upper and lower case letters, and contains special characters such as an @ or $. Passwords need to be changed regularly as well. They should be change every so many months and users should not be able to use a password twice in a year. In the LAN domain we need to protect against malicious emails. Users should know better than to open suspect emails at work, but a reminder could not hurt. Spam filters are extremely important so that user do not get as many suspect emails. In the workstation domain we need to make sure our workstations are protected. Internet security or at least antivirus should be used an all workstations. It seems like a no brainer in this day and age, but we still need to ensure it is implemented. Another way to secure our workstations is to encrypt the hard drives. We should also deactivate all media ports. In the WAN domain we need to set up firewalls. The firewalls we block things our company does......

...Project Part 1 I am the project manager for Global Communications, a multinational company that installs communication systems using a wide variety of communication technologies, ranging from stringing wire to fiber optics. While the corporate offices of Global Communications are located in the U.S., there are other divisions operating in the UK, Russia, Germany, France, Italy, China, India, Japan, Egypt, Mexico, and Argentina. The composition of project teams in Global Communications varies depending upon the project. However, a typical project team comprises a hardware engineer, a software engineer, a testing engineer, a network administrator, human resources for training, administrative support personnel, and computer programmers. A typical project involves drafting and design, procurement, and transportation and logistics. Recently, the Ministry of Communication of a small country in the Caribbean has approached Global Communications. The country has had a communication hardware failure that caused a breakdown of its entire communication system. My task as a project manager is to put together a project team that will ascertain the extent of the damage and recommend a course of action for the country to follow. I will begin this project by identifying the critical success factors (CSFs) necessary for the success of the project. Virtual teams are more complex because they cross boundaries related to time, distance, and organization (Duarte & Snyder, p.......

Also, anyone trying to gain access must not be connected to any other network at the same time, aside from personal home networks under the user's complete control. Further, employees with access must not use email accounts other than the company's standards, so that personal use won't be confused with business. Users must have approved virus control and spyware protection in place on all devices accessing the company network.   Remote access will be limited in certain areas, while at least Applications will be approved for access (Shared application data is an important part of Richman’s network). Systems and system settings will not be accessible from remote, out of network connections, to protect from outside alterations of systems or system settings, and any Data access will be read only, with safeguards in place to prevent data from being altered or stolen.   Further, access to various Systems and Data, etc will be protected by Network Segmentation.

...Project Part 1 Matthew Gist ITT Microeconomics ES2550 Roger Lignugaris April 19, 2015 Project Part 1 A. Does the United States have a comparative advantage in wingdings? Explain. It is cheaper to import wingdings than it is to produce them. If the US had a comparative advantage in wingdings, we would export them. Comparative advantage is that the countries with a comparative advantage in a certain good will specialize in and export that good. B. Discuss the effect of the tariff on the number of imports. The tariff decreases the import from 20 at the world price to 6 after the tariff.   The price increases from $6 to $8 for someone to buy a wingding in the US, which means the quantity demanded domestically is now 18 and the quantity supplied domestically is 12, which is only a shortage of 6 units that needs to be supplied. C. How did the imposition of the tariff change consumer surplus? The tariff decreased consumer surplus by the area with height 8-6 and base y = 26 and base z= 18. The area of this can be calculated by splitting the area into a rectangle and a triangle. The rectangle has an area of (8-6)x18=36 and the triangle has an area of (1/2)x(26-18)x2=8. Adding the two the consumer surplus went down by 44. D. How did the imposition of the tariff change producer surplus? Producer surplus increased after the tariff, by the area with height 8-6 and base y=6 and base z=12. The area of a trapezoid is just [(b1+b2)/2]xh, which is......

Information about an organization finds its way to the Internet via various routes. Employees are often easily tricked into providing tidbits of information which, over time, act to complete a complete picture of processes, organizational structure, and potential soft-spots. However, there are some things you can do which make it much harder for an attacker, including Make sure your systems don't leak information to the Web, including: Software versions and patch levels Email addresses Names and positions of key personnel Ensure proper disposal of printed information Provide generic contact information for domain name registration lookups Prevent perimeter LAN/WAN devices from responding to scanning attempts Phase 2 - Scanning Once the attacker has enough information to understand how the business works and what information of value might be available, he or she begins the process of scanning perimeter and internal network devices looking for weaknesses,......

This includes cabling, physical networks, operating systems, and software applications that computers use to connect to the Internet. There is a raging information security war. The goal is to protect national security and business information. Therefore, IT is in great need of proper security controls. Scenario Richman Investments is a mid-level financial investment and consulting firm. The Richman corporate headquarters is located in Phoenix, Arizona.

We need to take a hard look at our current configuration of host, services and our protocols within our organization. Data from a large number of penetration tests in recent years show most corporate networks share common vulnerabilities. Many of these problems could be mitigated by appropriate education in “hacker thinking” for technical staff. We will take a look at our security on routers and switches to make sure there are no leakages of data traffic. OBJECTIVE We have identified that we have loss some major accounts to competitors whose bids have been accurately just under our bid offers by exact amounts. We also believe due to shared reporting and public Web site functions that our Web servers have been compromised and our RFP documents have been leaked to competitors which enabled them to under bid us. We want to mitigate Web threats in the future; we realize the web is a mission critical business tool. We want to purchase new products and services, that will give us an edge and......

Regions Best (1+ .1317/12)^12 -1 =0.14 EAR = 14% National First (1+ (6.75+3.25)/2)^2 -1 =.1025 EAR = 10.25% 2. Based on my calculations I would choose the National First loan because the EAR is only 10.25%. The EAR for the Regions Best loan is 14%. The ideal EAR for the company would be the smallest rate. 3. (1+8.6/12)^12 -1 = 8.95%. Monthly payment 8.95% of $6,950,000 = $622,025. By taking a smaller amount loan will save them money that they will need to pay back in the end. If they don’t borrow enough they may end up closing because they ran out of money to get their feet off the ground. It all comes down to saving money now and taking that chance of starting quickly, or spending money now to get the factory set up and make money later. Task 2: Evaluating Competitor’s Stock 1. Lockheed Martin Corporation as of May 12, 2012 Price: 85.21 Dividend: 4.00 Rate of Return 4*(1+.05)/85.21 + .05 =.1204 =12.04% 2.
