Include a minimum of one source.

the cost of doing business

That theme is the cost of doing business”. Firms often have innovate products such as the Washington Redskins, or products that are innovative but used in the wrong way–e.g. the solar-powered trash can indoors. Firms also have issues with the costs of production–e.g. the Chevy volt. Incentives should also be considered when looking at the cost of capital, such as in France and checklists at autoshops.

this is the articles and defend the position of the person making that decision, in whatever way seems satisfactory as it relates to the chapter content and the business world.


Use the concepts found in chapters 3, 4, and 5 to answer your posts.

you need write more than 500 words, and use APA format.

this is key points of chapter 3,4,5.

Chapter 3

  1. Costs are associated with decisions, not activities.
  2. The opportunity cost of an alternative is the profit you give up to pursue it.
  3. In computing costs and benefits, consider all costs and benefits that vary with the consequences of a decision and only those costs and benefits that vary with the consequences of the decision. These are the relevant costs and benefits of a decision.
  4. Fixed costs do not vary with the amount of output. Variable costs change as output changes. Decisions that change output will change only variable costs.
  5. Accounting profit does not necessarily correspond to real or economic profit.
  6. The fixed-cost fallacy or sunk-cost fallacy means that you consider irrelevant costs. A common fixed-cost fallacy is to let overhead or depreciation costs influence short-run decisions. The hidden-cost fallacy occurs when you ignore relevant costs. A common hidden-cost fallacy is to ignore the opportunity cost of capital when making investment or shutdown decisions.

Chapter 4

  1. Average cost (AC) is total cost (fixed and variable) divided by total units produced.
  2. Average cost is irrelevant to an extent decision.
  3. Marginal cost (MC) is the additional cost incurred by producing and selling one more unit.
  4. Marginal revenue (MR) is the additional revenue gained from selling one more unit.
  5. Sell more if MR > MC; sell less if MR < MC. If MR = MC, you are selling the right amount (maximizing profit).
  6. The relevant costs and benefits of an extent decision are marginal costs and marginal revenue. If the marginal revenue of an activity is larger than the marginal cost, then do more of it.
  7. An incentive compensation scheme that increases marginal revenue or reduces marginal cost will increase effort. Fixed fees have no effects on effort.
  8. A good incentive compensation scheme links pay to performance measures that reflect effort.

Chapter 5

  1. Investments imply willingness to trade dollars in the present for dollars in the future. Wealth-creating transactions occur when individuals with low discount rates (rate at which they value future vs current dollars) lend to those with high discount rates.
  2. Companies, like individuals, have different discount rates, determined by their cost of capital. They invest only in projects that earn a return higher than the cost of capital.
  3. The NPV rule states that if the present value of the net cash flow of a project is larger than zero, the project earns economic profit (i.e., the investment earns more than the cost of capital).
  4. Although NPV is the correct way to analyze investments, not all companies use it. Instead, they use break-even analysis because it is easier and more intuitive.
  5. Break-even quantity is equal to fixed cost divided by the contribution margin. If you expect to sell more than the break-even quantity, then your investment is profitable.
  6. Avoidable costs can be recovered by shutting down. If the benefits of shutting down (you recover your avoidable costs) are larger than the costs (you forgo revenue), then shut down. The break-even price is average avoidable cost.
  7. If you incur sunk costs, you are vulnerable to post-investment hold-up. Anticipate hold-up and choose contracts or organizational forms that minimize the costs of hold-up.

Module 3 – SLP Efficiency and Adaptation

All organisms within an ecosystem participate in relationships with other organisms. Some relationships benefit the organisms and are essential for both species to survive. Others are detrimental (negative) to one organism, but critical for the other organism. Symbiosis and mutualism are not the same thing! Symbiosis is defined as any long-term relationship between two or more species. Mutualism is a type of symbiosis. Two other types of symbiosis found in ecosystems are commensalism and parasitism. Commensalism is when one organism benefits from the relationship, while the other one is neither helped nor harmed. An example of commensalism is a barnacle on a whale. The barnacle gets protection and transportation to different food sources while the whale is neither helped nor harmed by the presence of the barnacle. Parasitism is when one organism benefits, but harms the other member in the relationship.

For this SLP assignment, you will research three examples of symbiosis and develop a PowerPoint presentation that includes the following:

Slide 1: Title Slide
Title Slide with Name, Course, and Date

Slide 2: Introduction
Topics to be covered in outline form

Slide 3: Mutualism
Find an example of mutualism and describe the relationship between the two organisms. Give three examples (three points that cover the benefits and at least one drawback) to describe the benefits and potential limitations of the relationship (remember from your Case assignment, even mutually beneficial relationships can have drawbacks as noted with the monkeys and wolves). Show an image to illustrate the relationship.

Slide 4: Commensalism
Find an example of commensalism and describe the relationship between the two organisms. Give three examples to describe the benefits and limitations of the relationship. Show an image to illustrate the relationship.

Slide 5: Parasitism
Find an example of parasitism and describe the relationship between the two organisms. Give three examples to describe the benefits and limitations of the relationship. Show an image to illustrate the relationship.

Slides 6-8: Exploring Ecosystems
Watch the following video:
Exploring Ecosystems: Coral Reef Symbiosis | California Academy of Sciences

Describe two examples of mutualistic relationships found on the coral reef in the video. Be sure to describe how each organism benefits in the relationship. Provide images illustrating the relationships. How do these interactions influence patterns of distribution and abundance within this ecosystem as a whole?

Slide 9: Conclusion
Summarize your project findings.

Slide 10: References

Approaching Interviews

As you approach the neighbors in the community, you and other officers are asking for any observations that were made during the morning hours as the missing child was leaving for school. You ask the following:

  • Did they witness anyone acting suspiciously?
  • Did they observe anyone in the company of the child?
  • Can they describe or identify the subject?
  • Do they know the name or location of the subject?

Prepare a memo of 500–700 words describing how you are going to approach these interviews. Include what items you may need to know more about, and keep the following in mind:

  • As a critical case, consider the significance of this case.
  • Are there any legal considerations that you must take into account? What are they?
  • How will you approach any questioning of school-aged children in the community?
  • Remember, no skilled interviewer or interrogator begins an interview or interrogation without a plan.
    • Consider preparing a plan.
    • Know what questions to ask prior to the neighborhood interview.
    • Know about the relevant facts found prior to asking questions.

someFreshwater and Marine Systems questions

hello i need help in some questions about Freshwater and Marine Systems

1-Describe where the liquid freshwater is found on the planet? If freshwater is a supposedly “renewable resource” (thanks to the water cycle!), why are our supplies of freshwater slowly dwindling?

2-After reading “The Last Drop, explain the social and political challenges that people in India and Pakistan face in filling basic water needs from an extremely limited supply.

3-According to Sylvia Earle in her TED Talk, what are the three greatest human-induced crises facing marine systems? Explain each one briefly.

Maryville University of Saint Louis Health Policy and Ethics Analysis

For each of the scenarios below, research how this particular individual could access care and offer potential solutions for this individual and those who are similarly situated. You may analyze and offer solutions based on your state of residence or a state of your choosing. For each scenario, please indicate which state’s policies you researched and provide links to your research.

Scenario 1. Unable to secure a full-time job in her rural, economically depressed town, Anna, who is 48 years old, makes ends meet by working 3 jobs part-time. She does not have health insurance and she makes too much to be eligible for Medicaid. Recently, she found a lump in her breast. She is worried because her mother died of breast cancer, but Anna knows she can’t afford the diagnostic tests let alone any treatment such as surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. She is eager to get care, but is considering ignoring the lump since she has no way to pay for anything but the most basic physician visits. What additional concerns would you need to address if Anna doesn’t speak English and/or if there are cultural variations in expected medical care? (i.e. complementary medicine)

Scenario 2. Bill is a single father with two children on Medicaid. Matthew is 13 and has been complaining of mild jaw pain due to a cavity causing severe decay in a molar. In addition, his teeth are very crooked and do not line up well causing difficulty properly chewing his food. His younger brother Charlie, who is 8, doesn’t seem to have any dental issues, but he hasn’t been to the dentist in 3 years. Bill has tried to make dental appointments for his children, but hasn’t been able to find a dentist who takes Medicaid in his community. Research beyond simply finding free clinics that while they can access it, but there is a long wait time. What can Bill can do beyond trying to find a free dental clinic to see his children?

Explain policy changes (state and national) that could be put in place in order to assist these people more than current policy allows?

Second Part: 

What is the definition of culture? For healthcare professionals/organizations, what elements should be included and why? Are some elements more important than others? Explain, providing examples from your professional/personal experience as well as the readings.
