## Consider college officials in admissions registration, counseling, financial aid campus ministry, food services, and so on. How much money do these people make each year? Suppose you read in your local newspaper that 45 officials in student services earn an average of \$50,340 each year. Assume that the standard deviation is \$10,780 for salaries of college officials and student services. Find a 90% confidence interval for the population mean salaries of such personnel. Round your answer to the nearest dollar and don;t forget to use the \$ sign.

Since sample size is > 40, we use the z-score
in calculating for the confidence interval.

The formula is given as:

Confidence Interval = X ± z * σ / sqrt (n)

Where,

X = mean = \$50,340

z = z-score which is taken from standard distribution
tables at 90% confidence interval = 1.645

σ
= standard deviation = \$10,780

n = sample size = 45

Substituting to the equation:

Confidence Interval = 50,340 ± 1.645 * 10,780 / sqrt (45)

Confidence Interval = 50,340 ± 1,607

Confidence Interval = \$48,733 to \$51,947

Therefore the salary range of the personnel is \$48,733 to \$51,947.

There are two systems in the human body that are responsible for the coordination between the functions of different systems to achieve the unity of the living organism’s body. These two systems are the nervous system and the endocrine system. The action of the nervous system is fast and takes a short time, while the action of the endocrine system is slow and takes a long time.

The functional unit of the nervous system is the nerve cell or the neuron. The neuron consists of a cell body and the axon. The cell body starts with the dendrites that receive the messages or the impulses from other neurons or from different sense organs or receptors. These impulses are then transmitted through the cell body. The cell body contains a nucleus and different organelles which help the nerve cell to perform its functions. The nerve impulse is then transmitted to the axon.

The axon is an extension from the cell body. There are some cells called Schwan cells that secrete a myelin sheath to insulate the axon from the surrounding medium. The insulated axons have more ability to conduct the impulses than non-insulated axons. The axon ends with the terminal arborizations. The terminal arborizations of a nerve cell connect to the dendrites of the next cell or to the afferent organ. The gaps between the dendrites and the terminal arborizations are called the synapses.

The nerve impulse is an electrochemical phenomenon i.e. an electrical phenomenon with a chemical nature. The membrane of the axon acts as a barrier between an outside positively charged medium and an inside negatively charged medium. This makes a potential difference of  -70mV. This state is called the resting potential. When the membrane is subjected to a stimulus, the positive charges enter to inside and the negative charges exit to the outside. The potential difference now becomes +40mV. This state is called the depolarization state. The point of stimulation acts as a new stimulus for the next point and so on. The membrane sooner gains its permeability again and the positive charges return to the outside and the negative charges to inside. This state is called repolarization.

The nerve impulse reaches the synapse. There are some neurotransmitters that are excited by the nerve impulse coming and carry the message across the membrane. Some receptors receive theses neurotransmitters on the dendrites of the next neuron. These receptors act as a stimulus for the new cell.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

## The cost of a daily newspaper varies from city to city. however, the variation among prices remains steady with a standard deviation of 20?. a study was done to test the claim that the mean cost of a daily newspaper is \$1.00. ten costs yield a mean cost of 96? with a standard deviation of 18?. do the data support the claim at the 1% level?

127=7 (mod n) means when 127 is divided by n, the division leaves a remainder of 7.

The statement is equivalent to
120=0 (mod n), meaning that n divides 120.

All divisors of 120 will satisfy the statement because 120 divided by a divisor (factor) will leave a remainder of 0.

Factors of 120 are:
n={1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12,15,20,24,30,40,60,120}, |n|=16.
You can count how many such values of n there are, and try to check that each one satisfies 127=7 mod n.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

## Read the passage. a new mayor for brookside citizens of brookside have many choices to make in the upcoming election. however, no ballot measure is more important than whom we select as our next mayor. although we have two qualified candidates to vote for, we believe that rochelle jackson has proven herself to be a stronger candidate than suzette muñez. during her eight years as a city council member, ms. jackson fought for tax cuts that resulted in an 18% growth in local business. she also managed the development of our new regional airport and sponsored three new after school programs for brooksides youth. the new laws proposed by ms. jackson have brought about a 31% drop in crime over the last five years. while ms. muñez has an impressive track record as a large business owner, we feel that she lacks the public service experience needed to serve as mayor of brookside. we fear her decisions would better serve big business and not the needs of our citizens and local businesses. we at the brookside gazette strongly urge you to elect rochelle jackson as the next mayor of brookside. this passage is an example of what type of newspaper article?

Let’s say that,

A= Division A

B = Division B

Working Time = T          (either
machine hours or labor hours)

The given variables are:

MOC (A) = \$160,000

MOC (B) = \$360,000

T (A) = 30,000 machine hours

T (B) = 21,000 labor hours

Rates. This is calculated using the formula:

Overhead Allocation Rates = MOC / T

Overhead Allocation Rate (A) = \$160,000 / 30,000 machine
hours

Allocation Rate (A) = \$5.33 per machine hour

Overhead Allocation Rate (B) = \$360,000 / 21,000 labor
hours

Allocation Rate (B) = \$17.14 per labor hour

The correct answer is “it includes commentary on several rights issues, including slavery and women’s suffrage.”

The statement that best describes “How ain’t a Woman” is “it includes commentary on several rights issues, including slavery and women’s suffrage.”

Isabella Baumfree was an African American woman that was born in 1797. She changed her name to Sojourner Truth in 1843. Her tenacity on the civil rights for women made her a supporter of human rights followed by many African Americans. She was also famous for her speech delivered in 1851 in the Women’s Rights Convention, in Akron, Ohio. The title of the speech is “How ain’t a Woman.” In the speech, she includes commentary on several rights issues, including slavery and women’s suffrage.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

The correct answer to fill in the blank would be this: Interpersonal psychotherapy, also known as IPT, refers to the short-term therapy that focuses on the contect of current social relationships.

Explanation:

Interpersonal Psychotherapy was first developed around the 1970´s by Gerald Klerman and Myrna Weissman to treat, in coordination with cognitive behavioral therapy, and medication, severe cases of major depression. This type of therapy, as well as cognitive therapy, are known as psychosocial interventions that require professionals to be trained specifically in them to be able to apply them. The focus of IPT is precisely to be a short-term, no more than 16 weeks, treatment that exposes the patients to understand the way that mood can impact life´s events and vice versa, and it also works on interpersonal problems, among other things.

“I understood, too, that in ordinary civil administration this oath even forbade me to practically indulge my primary abstract judgment on the moral question of slavery.”

Means that the oath he took when he(Abraham Lincoln) went into office and became president forbids him to do something that breaks the constitution no matter if his OWN morals say something else.

“I had publicly declared this many times and in many ways; and I aver that, to this day I have done no official act in mere deference to my abstract judgment and feeling on slavery.”

He publicly said this to show every one his views on slavery different ways and he states that to that day he’s done no official act to defend his judgement and view on slavery.

“I did understand, however, that my oath to preserve the Constitution to the best of my ability imposed upon me the duty of preserving, by every indispensable means, that government, that nation, of which that Constitution was the organic law.”

He understood that his oath to preserve the constitutions to the best of his ability by any means necessary because the constitution was the main law.

“Was it possible to lose the nation, and yet preserve the Constitution?”

He looks for an alternate way to find a way to preserve the constitution without losing the nation.
