China’s tainted baby milk powder

1. Yes I believe that there was some damage to Baidu.com reputation. According to the article there were rumors that Baidu.com was accepting payments to keep information from surfacing regarding the tainted milk during a search, which goes against the integrity of the company. Also Baidu.com was under attack for not separating paid advertisements from non-paid search results. 2. Because of the rumors, it could cause the stakeholders to lose confidence in Baidu.com. If the public believes that Baidu.com is guilty of producing some unreliable search results, it could cause numerous problems for Baidu.com. Also the paid advertisers could take their business elsewhere. 3. If Baidu.com could reassure their stakeholders that their information is reliable. And the companies that pay for advertising will receive the services expected. If they are unable to restore their creditability they could possibly go out of business as indicated by the drop in their stock.
‘5. By developing a culture of openness and by diminishing that culture of secrecy. And the government putting laws in place to determine the behavior of the country.

WorldCom: The Final Catalyst 1. WorldCom created excess reserves or provisions for future expenses, which they later released or reduced, thereby adding to profits. The manipulation of profit through reserves or provisions is known as “cookie jar” accounting. According to the SEC first, WorldCom improperly released certain reserves held against operating expenses. Second, WorldCom improperly recharacterized certain operating costs as capital assets.

2. I am uncertain, but I believe the Arthur Andersen auditor lost its independence when conducting the WorldCom audit. Two members of upper management were previous employees of Arthur Andersen made personal. And the fact that Andersen’s…...

Stanley, age 16, is claimed as a dependent on his parents' return. Stanley is a dependent on his parent’s return so there will be no personal exemption as one is claimed on his parent’s return (exemption of 3,800). Gross income includes all items of income from whatever source unless specifically excluded. Therefore, Stanley’s taxable income is 3,000.

...Phil Bohrer, NT1330 Unit 2 homework. 4/02/12 Assignment 1: DHCP Troubleshooting. Check the workstations using ipconfig /all and find out if the ip range is within the address range you assigned, if it is a different address then the workstation failed to contact the DHCP server and has gone into apipa mode. The Network Interface Card might be assigned an incorrect driver. Another possible cause of the problem is that the patch cable is not plugged into the Network Interface Card, or is not connected to a switch on the other end. However, it could be that the server has run out of IP addresses that it can assign to clients. You can easily tell if this is the problem by comparing the size of the DHCP address scope to the number of devices on your network that request IP addresses from the DHCP server. But since only some of the workstations have got addresses the problem might be the DHCP server. Start off by doing some ping tests to verify that the DHCP server is able to communicate across the network. If the DHCP server is able to communicate with other computers on the network, then I recommend verifying that the DHCP server has an IP address that is compatible with the scope that the server is configured to assign addresses from. The server itself has to be assigned a static address in the same subnet range, such as If this still doesn’t solve the problem make sure that the DHCP server is still authorized by the Active Directory to lease IP addresses.

...Problem #1: Using either a graph or table (Refer to page 22 for help with graphs and tables) use two goods to construct a production possibilities curve. Clearly explain what a variety of different points on the curve mean. This production curve shows the weighing of producing controllers for X-box ones vs the X-box one produced. If too many controllers are made you don’t have enough X-box ones. This isn’t a one on one relationship because each X-box can use more than one controller. What would make the curve expand or contract? If the number go outside of the curve efficiency is lost and there become a production imbalance. Why is efficiency lost at the extremes, as when substantially more of one good and very little of another is produced? At the extremes you would either produce too many ocntrollers and not enough x-boxes or vice versa. Problem #2 Part A: Go to the internet auction site eBay® at www.ebay.com and select the category Jewelry and Watches, followed by Loose Diamonds and Gemstones, and then Diamonds, Natural.

...Week One - Homework Practice Exercises 1 1. The night shift was not necessarily safer. It might just be that there are fewer workers on the night shift. You would need to know the number of workers and the hours they are working to figure out the rate at which accidents happen. This is a problem of a missing denominator. 2. (a) There are many more Camrys on the road than Escalades (b) Because the theft rate is higher, the Escalade is more likely to get stolen. 3. They should look at the complaint rate per hundred prescriptions -- not the total number of complaints. The reason most of the complaints are for CVS pharmacy could easily be because most of the prescriptions are written from CVS pharmacies. It could turn out that CVS pharmacies are doing better than other pharmacies. Practice Exercises 2 4. (a) observational (b) Prisoners who volunteer to take these courses are more likely to be interested in being rehabilitated than the ones who don’t volunteer. The confounding factor created here is the level of prisoner motivation to be rehabilitated: it influences whether or not they take the courses and also whether or not they commit crimes to return to prison.

Open the file, Process the file, Close the file #2 Why should a program close a file when it’s finished using it? By closing a file, any unsaved data that is held in the buffer is saved to its file. Also, when a program closes files that are no longer being used, the files will not take up more of the operating system's resources than necessary. #4 If an existing file is opened in append mode, what happens to the file’s existing contents? In most languages, when you open an output file and that file already exists on the disk, the contents of the existing file will be erased. #5 In most languages, if a file does not exist and a program attempts to open it in append mode, what happens?

If the store does not have a video recorder in stock when a customer wants to buy one, it will lose the sale because the customer will purchase a recorder from one of the many local competitors. The problem is that the cost of renting warehouse space to keep enough recorders in inventory to meet all demand is excessively high. The manager has determined that if 90% of customer demand for recorders can be met, then the combined cost of lost sales and inventory will be minimized. The manager has estimated that monthly demand for recorders is normally distributed, with a mean of 180 recorders and a standard deviation of 60.

...Course Code: BIRMI 1A15 Unit 1 – Basic Hypnotherapy Techniques (Ofqual Ref. M/505/8186) Homework Assignment – Journal Entry Module 1 (1 – 1.1) Explain the state of hypnosis. Looking back, it is clear now that hypnosis has been around for many centuries and the use of hypnotic states can be traced back to Shamans or Witch Doctors. In the 1700’s Franz Anton Mesmer produced his theory of “animal magnetism” in which he believed healing forces could be transferred through “cosmic fluid” there is no evidence to support the transfer of the healing energies devised by Mesmer but his success rate was high which lead to his patients being described as “mesmerized” and mesmerism is an early forerunner for modern day hypnosis. Many theories utilising a hypnotic state then followed but it was not until an English physician called James Braid (1795-1860) giving mesmerism a scientific explanation of a “nervous sleep” introducing the word hypnosis derived from the Greek word for sleep Hypnos. Many theories evolved from this view and hypnosis eventually gained acceptance as a naturally occurring phenomenon. In the 1950’s hypnosis began a renaissance as it became recognized for the therapeutic potential in the fields of behavior modification and healing. Hypnosis can be categorised as a trance state or altered level of consciousness. Our minds are split between our conscious and subconscious states and we are able to switch between the two often unaided and without realising. A......
