The following graph shows the demand curve for a group of consumers in the U.S. market (blue line) for Blu-ray players. The market price of a Blu-ray player is shown by the black horizontal line at $150. Each rectangle you can place on the following graph corresponds to a particular buyer in this market: orange (square symbols) for Antonio, green (triangle symbols) for Caroline, purple (diamond symbols) for Dmitri, tan (dash symbols) for Frances, and blue (circle symbols) for Jake. Use the rectangles to shade the areas representing consumer surplus for each person who is willing and able to purchase a Blu-ray player at a market price of $150. (Note: If a person will not purchase a Blu-ray player at the market price, indicate this by leaving his or her rectangle in its original position on the palette.

On December 15, 1791, the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution) were ratified by the states.

The Bill of Rights were added to the Constitution to address fears raised by the Anti-Federalists during the ratification of the Constitution that the Constitution did not provide sufficient protection against abuses of power by the federal government. 

James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, originally did not think a Bill of Rights was necessary. He thought the Constitution gave no power to the federal government that would allow for a violation of the rights of the people.

Madison later changed his position, persuaded mainly by Thomas Jefferson, and, with the help of others, drafted twenty amendments that were proposed to the first United States Congress in 1789.

Twelve of the proposed amendments were accepted by Congress and were then sent to the states for ratification. Only ten were ratified.

These ten amendments list our basic rights and place limits on the federal government. They include the freedoms of speech and religion, the right to bear arms, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and an assurance that the powers not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution are reserved to the states and the people. Many of these provisions were based upon similar protections provided by state constitutions that limited the power of state and local government authorities.

Of the remaining amendments that were not ratified in 1791, one was later adopted in 1992 as the twenty-seventh amendment to the Constitution. That amendment prevents changes in the compensation for senators and representatives until after a subsequent election of representatives. The other proposed amendment has never been adopted.

The Bill of Rights illustrates that our Founders understood that for personal freedoms to be broad, the power of the federal government must be limited.

Our nation, however, has moved away from its founding principles, especially during recent decades. Our ever-growing federal government is intervening into more and more aspects of our lives, especially through bureaucratic regulations, and is reducing our personal freedoms in the process.

Government at all levels is doing more and more things that were once left to private individuals and groups, and the federal government is doing more and more things that were once the province of state and local governments, where greater accountability to the public is often possible.

One need only look at the HHS mandate—forcing employers to violate their religious beliefs, under pain of penalty, by paying for and providing abortion pill insurance coverage—to see the harm caused by an overreaching government.

The preservation of our liberties is a daily battle, something our Founders understood. The process of scaling back the size and role of government and returning limits to it is a long one. But, since the federal government is supposed to be our servant and not our master, no one should doubt the importance of this endeavor.

Industrialization led to rising imperialism because 
1) show of power: As one makes new technology, they would either want to test it out or show the other nations that what they produce is ground-breaking and the best. Usually if it is military technology, you would want to test it out, and with the use of “show of force”, can have people groups submit to your country.
2) Better technology: As technology advances, it usually makes something easier. In the case of imperialism, better military advances meant that they could (once again) have other people submit to you
3) Better transportation: This meant that you could take multiple countries at once, and can prove that you’re country is great by having supplies shipped over long distances to keep your troops up. If in need of more troops, you could send more.

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

 

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = $1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = $47

 

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = $234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $8.4

Direct labor per unit = $131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = $240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = $8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = $113,220 / 22,200
units sold = $5.1

TE = $26.8

 

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = $47 – $26.8

CM = $20.2 per unit

If a society decides to produce consumer goods from its available resources it’s answering what basic economic question?


Natural Forces Affecting the Driver:

1. While the car stops, the person continues moving the way that the car were moving and then hits the obstacle in the car or the person can be thrown out of the vehicle. If the person wears belt, he will stop moving with the vehicle and won’t hit the obstacle.

2. We count approximate kinetic energy using the formula K = v^2. So the vehicle which is moving at 30 mph will have four times less kinetic energy than vehicle which is moving at 60 mph. If they have the same road conditions, the breaking distance will be four times as great for the car moving twice as fast.

3. Kinetic energy depends on object’s mass and velocity and it has direct relationship with the stopping distance. The lesser mass of the vehicle = the lesser kinetic energy and lesser stopping distance. => If both vehicles have the same velocity, then small vehicle has lesser kinetic energy than large vehicle.

4. We know that kinetic energy has this relationship with velocity K = v^2. So the best way to prepare to enter sharp curves in the roadway is to lower the speed. The most appropriate speed is 20-30 mph, but it depends on road conditions and car’s breaks condition.

5. Car crashes can happen with everyone so the best way is to be prepared. First the driver should wear a seatbelt while he’s driving. He should check his tires and breaks condition regularly. And also it’s important to slow down the vehicle while entering sharp curves. Without following these rules, the driver can get catastrophic injuries in a car crash.

Signs, Signals, and Pavement Markings: 

1. It doesn’t matter where you go. All you need is to learn highway code. It’s very different to know the meanings of every road sign. Also, it’s necessary to check your car’s conditions and you should take some spare parts for your car in case of accidents. So wherever you go, it’s important to be prepared.

2. You should stop before crossing and take few minutes to make sure there is no train approaching. If there is no train approaching, you can pass a railroad crossing. If you see approaching train, you should wait until it will pass a railroad crossing.

3. You should stop before the lights and wait to check the traffic movement and signs. Make sure that everything is safe and pass the intersection. Don’t move fast to avoid accidents.

4. Flashing yellow light means that it’s not necessary to stop but you should to pay attention on the traffic movement. So it would be better to yield before the lights and make sure if it’s safe to move. After that you can cross the intersection.

5. The line change means that the lane changes and you can’t cross solid lines. Pay more attention on road marking because it shows how you should behave on the road or highway.

6. As you approach the next exit and  your passengers need to use the restroom and get some food, you should look for green signs which indicate food and rest stops. You should to slow down if you don’t want to skip the sign.

7. When you take the exit ramp off the expressway and merge onto the next road, you see yellow lines dividing the roadway which indicates that there is oncoming traffic and this is a two-way highway.

Describe effect of loose money and tight money policies on the actions listed below. 1. Borrowing 2. Consumer Buying 3. Businesses 4. Employment 5. Production


1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

Without the consumer what would the overall effect be on the economy?

9) An important effect of northern renaissance writers writing in vernacular IS B. Their works could be read in towns and cities by members of the new middle class. Because the scholars in the monasteries and the monarchs and nobles already read all the important works in the Latin language, because they knew Latin. And the distributed by merchants to readers outside Europe was afterwards with the creation of the printing press and the discovery of America. But at that time of the Renaissance the Renaissance writers translated the most important works into the vernacular language that is the language spoken by the common people of each town, it was really very important because it allowed the people and ordinary people to access books and documents to which until then only the nobles and monks acceded to know the Latin or the Greek language.

 

10. The correct answer is B. Sir Thomas More

He is the northern European humanist, who wrote a book that imagine a peaceful Society without private property. Utopia is the name of Sir Tomas Moro´s book. Book of the ideal state of a republic on the new island of Utopia is a book written by Thomas Moro and published in 1516. Thomas Moro imagines a fictional community based on the philosophical and political ideals of the classical world and Christianity. Utopia is a peaceful community, which establishes the common property of goods, in contrast to the system of private property and the conflictive relationship between contemporary European societies to Moro.  

 

In question 11 the correct answer is A. The protestant reformation signify a response to the Corruption in the church.  

One of the main reasons that led to the “Protestant Reformation” was the disagreement with certain practices that the high clergy of the Church was doing at that time.

The most important complaint made by Luther was that the clergy issued indulgences or forgiveness of sins in exchange for large sums of money to finance the construction of the Basilica of St. Peter and maintain ways of life of great luxury and privileges by the high clergy.


In question 12 the correct answer is D.
Ulrich zwingli

Ulrich Zwingli is considered the creator of the Reformed Church of Switzerland. In 1525 he published his “Confession of Faith” where he expounded a theology largely coincident with Luther but added more radical changes in some doctrinal or practical aspects.

Among the central ideas he contributed were:

  • the Eucharist is administered under the two species and the mass is suppressed,
  • the images of the churches are eliminated,
  • the suppression of priestly celibacy is decreed,
  • a charity for the poor is established and regulated, financed with the funds obtained from the secularization of ecclesiastical property.


In question 13 the correct answer is D.
Belief in predestination

Martin Luther and John Calvin differ in that the latter raised the belief that although the salvation of the soul is by faith, God has predetermined who are those who will achieve salvation. Calvin maintained that those who will be saved will make the decision of faith at the propitious moment of their own free will, but God knows everything that will happen beforehand. Luther did not raise this detail.  

In question 14 the correct answer is C. Faith alone

Martin Luther gave great importance to the knowledge of the Bible and the spiritual life but maintained that to achieve the salvation of the soul, only faith is enough.

More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. Due to the ongoing urbanisation and growth of the world’s population, there will be about 2.5 billion more people added to the urban population by 2050, mainly in Africa and Asia. The world’s urban areas are highly varied, but many cities and towns are facing problems such as a lack of jobs, homelessness and expanding squatter settlements, inadequate services and infrastructure, poor health and educational services and high levels of pollution.

In this study session, you will learn about the trends in urbanisation and the causes of urban growth. You will also learn about the demographic, health, environmental and social consequences of urbanisation.

Learning Outcomes for Study Session 5

When you have studied this session, you should be able to:

5.1  Define and use correctly all of the key words printed in bold. (SAQs 5.1 and 5.2)

5.2  Describe the global and local trends in urbanisation. (SAQ 5.3)

5.3  Explain the main causes of urban growth. (SAQs 5.1 and 5.2)

5.4  Describe the main positive and negative impacts of urbanisation. (SAQ 5.4)

5.1  Urbanisation trends

In Study Session 2 you learned about the overall trend in global population growth. Most of this increase is taking place in urban areas. Urbanisation is an increase in the number of people living in towns and cities. Urbanisation occurs mainly because people move from rural areas to urban areas and it results in growth in the size of the urban population and the extent of urban areas. These changes in population lead to other changes in land use, economic activity and culture. Historically, urbanisation has been associated with significant economic and social transformations. For example, urban living is linked with higher levels of literacy and education, better health, lower fertility and a longer life expectancy, greater access to social services and enhanced opportunities for cultural and political participation (UNDESA, 2014). However, urbanisation also has disadvantages caused by rapid and unplanned urban growth resulting in poor infrastructures such as inadequate housing, water and sanitation, transport and health care services.

5.1.1  Global trends in urbanisation

In 1960, the global urban population was 34% of the total; however, by 2014 the urban population accounted for 54% of the total and continues to grow. By 2050 the proportion living in urban areas is expected to reach 66% (UNDESA, 2014). Figure 5.1 shows the change in the rural and urban populations of the world from 1950 through to projected figures up to the year 2050.

Figure 5.1  Urban and rural population of the world, 1950–2050. (UNDESA, 2014)From Figure 5.1, in which year did the number of people living in urban areas first exceed the number living in rural areas?The two lines cross at about 2007 or 2008. This is when urban first

Answer:

Answer:

The process of DNA replication, in order for cells to divide, is a pretty complex process that requires several enzymes to work. One such enzyme is polymerase, without which the process of DNA replication would not take place. It is polymerase that ensures the creation of a new DNA strand from a template strang, and also, it ensures that coding errors and joining errors, are corrected before a mutated DNA strand in released. Thus, the answers to the questions are as follows:

1. Besides replicating DNA, the other function of DNA polymerase is: B: Correcting errors. Polymerase is the one that adds nucleotides to the formed strands, but also reads the strand to correct errors in the coding system.

2. The polymerase prevents mutation of the DNA because it is able to: B: Repair the DNA by removing the error and then correcting it with new nucleotides.

3. The gene that is responsible for tumor suppression, among the many, is: B: p53. This gene produces protein p53, which prevents the formation of cancerous tumors and also, when it is missing it can lead to cancers such as colon, or leykemia.

4. In the genetical play of replication, the correct steps will always be: DNA, to RNA, to protein. Therefore, the answer here is: C: DNA codes for RNA, which codes for protein.

It is important that the product should be quality oriented as there are many competitors and it is easy for the consumers to shift to other available competitors if the quality is low as compared to competitors. 

Another significant factor is the price factor, which suggests that the price should be competitive in the market as compared to the competitors because it is the primary factor which most of the consumers use in order to finalize their purchasing decision. It is important to understand that the price, which is being charged by the company, will be the cost for the consumer so it is important to provide cost-effective products to consumers to effectively compete with competitors in the local market.

Factors Affecting Consumer Buying Behavior for Shoes or Footwear

Promotion is another significant factor, which is responsible for influencing the purchasing behaviour of consumers. It is important that frequent promotions should be launched by the company and they should be properly advertised in order to make sure that it positively enhances the sales of the company and the overall performance of the company. It is also important that shoes offered to the final consumers should be available in all the outlets of the company.

Another significant factor, which is responsible for influencing the purchasing decision of the consumers, is the income level and gender of the consumer. It is important that the income level of the consumer should be medium or high in order to positively influence the decision related to purchasing of shoes. Identification of these factors will help the company to modify the products according to the factors, which are responsible for influencing the purchasing decisions of the consumers in a negative manner. These feedbacks will be significantly important for the progress of the company (Saha, Dey, & Bhattacharyya, 2010).

It is important that the company should advertise their shoes in order to effectively in hands the fashion Awareness of the consumers. By enhancing the fashion Awareness of the consumers, the company management will be able to create demand for their products offered in the market and will be able to attract the potential customers to purchase the products, which have been offered in the market by the company.

Another significant factor responsible for influencing the purchasing decision of the consumer is the comfort of the shoes. It is important that the issues offered by the company in the market should be comfortable for the consumer in order to positively influence his purchasing decision (Anand & Alekya, 2015).

The attitude of women towards purchasing shoes is different as compared to the attitude of men towards purchasing shoes. It clearly suggests that gender has a significant role in influencing the decisions of consumers related to purchasing of shoes. Different studies have been conducted in past and they suggest that most of the young consumers in modern days purchase rationally and carefully due to which it is important for the company to make sure that optimum level of products are being offered in market to potential customers and quality oriented products are being offered as compared to the competitors. In this modern era of globalization and Technology, it is very easy to shift to alternative competitors owing to poor quality or high prices of some specific alternative products (Pospisilova, 2013).

Factors Affecting Consumer Buying Situation

Advertisement Description

Advertising a product on the particular occasion is the most intellectual way of advertising your product or most valuable time. The product which is advertised according to the situation captures much worth and likes because of being on time in the market. In this year I have seen many adds which in which advertiser advertised his product on that occasion in which, that product must be used by many of consumers as it was the essential product of that event, for example woolen clothes in winter, Lawn collection in summers, Fish in winter, Mangoes in summer etc. these are occasion based products of consumer use.

Situational Influences on Consumer Behavior

Situational influence on consumer behavior is an important factor to keep in mind while advertising your product. An advertiser should keep in mind the current liking of consumer in essential and compulsory items of living that are clothes, food and beverages, Brands of house accessories etc. People now a day mostly prefer those products which are high in quality but low in price. So the advertiser should capture consumer’s mind and then should advertise his product to earn maximum likes and sale of the product.

Effect of Physical Surroundings

Physical surroundings affect the consumer’s behavior very much. A consumer should be given a comfortable and leisure atmosphere in which consumer enjoys his purchasing’s. A consumer always likes open, airy and spacious areas for shopping. A consumer likes to have all the things placed separately on separate stalls so that consumer can easily select it. If a producer creates an atmosphere where there is some kind of slow music playing at a corner different color lights are blown on that place there is a proper and straight way to take that thing then consumer became very happy and fell comfortable and wishes to come there again and again for shopping. Consumer also suggests other mates to go to that place for shopping due to cool atmosphere of that place.

Online marketing of a brand now a day is the fastest and most popular way of advertising your brand and socializing it among the people. Now all the age, gender people use social media sites to keep in touch with the global world. What new is coming, which product or brand has a high ratings, which trend is trendy this time what is the market value of that brand etc. All this stuff now a days is easily available on social media sites which is just one click away from your finger. Just click on it and get into the new era of time.

Social Surroundings

Social surroundings include moving of a consumer for purchase with group of other people like his family, friends or relatives. When a consumer go out to purchase with his mates consumer can choice easily with the help of listening others opinions about the product. Sometime consumer takes the idea from some old age people because they have more experienced then him. Secondly he asks from the sale staff at the mall about the product which they wanted to buy. Mostly people like to go to shopping alone because sometimes they got confused with other’s opinions. They just like to follow their own choice and get themselves satisfied.

Consumer’s Concerns

Social surroundings addresses consumer’s concerns easily and sometimes difficult as well. Social surrounding refers to gathering around you. This gathering includes all age and gender people living around you. Every person has its own likes and dislikes. Every person has its own choice to choose something or not. Consumer’s concern may get confused in this gathering, so the best way is to get help from social media where brand producers are always ready to help you related there brand so that you can purchase more from that and their sale increases. And consumer trust more on their product.

Single’s Day

In some European countries there is a day celebrated by the name single’s day. There are two types of single’s day as well one which people celebrate in some countries by dating with each other and celebrate there being single with happiness and joy. They celebrate it properly as a festival. The single’s day teaches them the importance of family. In some other countries single’s day is a sale festival in which they create sale stalls and create records of sales. ALI BABA is one of the biggest sale event which on early basis breaks the record of sales worldwide.

Market strategies to capture marketers are to involve the person in his required product as much as possible that he / she couldn’t be able to get out of it. In ALI BABA sale festival they arranged discounts on every item smallest to biggest from cosmetics to car, on clothing and on shoes. Mobiles and smart products were on top sale ranking there. Everyone was purchasing their desired product with a lot of discount without compromising on quality. And it was very easy for all the consumers that all the products of all the brands were available in under one roof.

Temporary Situation

Temporary means “short timings”. Temporary situations are those situations which held suddenly aura for a very short time. Last Sunday I had an experience to attend a short time sale of ladies woolen clothing brand near my residence area. I first visited all the stalls, take a look at the quality and compared the prices from different stalls. I didn’t at once tooked a decision I first gathers my desired or satisfied knowledge from that area and then purchased some suits which were reasonable in price, affordable for me and good in quality as well.
