Mr. pines thought ms. smith was the ideal employee. smith was an impressive person and attended all social functions of the company. however, during the past year she had trouble meeting sales quotas. nevertheless, on her performance appraisal, pines rated smith as one of the top salespeople. on hearing this, other salespeople complained that pines must guard against ____ in rating smith.

The answer in the space provided is that Pines must guard against overemphasizing issues in which are not completely unjust for he only has a handful of facts of picking his ideal employee when he does not know the rest of the performance and that he should not under emphasize others for it is not fair for those people who deserves to have the title and the only reason that they were degraded because of his judgments.

Tina can paint a room 1.5 times faster than Joey can. If they work together, they can paint a room in 6 hours. How long would it take the slower person working alone to paint the room?

To answer this problem, let us define that:

x = amount of time Joey can paint a room in hours

1.5 x = amount of time Tina can paint a room in hours

Each person can complete 1 job in the specified amount of
time.

1 job / x hours = rate of Joey

1job / 1.5 x hours = rate of Tina

By adding the two, they can paint the room (1 job) in 6
hours. Therefore:

(1 / x) + (1 / 1.5 x) = 1 / 6

Multiplying whole equation with 6 (x) (1.5 x):

6 (1.5 x) + 6 x = x (1.5 x)

9 x + 6 x = 1.5 x^2

Dividing both sides with x:

15 = 1.5 x

x = 10 hours

Therefore the time it will take Tina, the slower person, is
1.5x = 15 hours

Why might a government entity choose to offer some information and services online as in e-government A. Prevent in person participation in government B. To increase public interest in government C. To decrease the number of paid staff D. To Improve access to more of its citizens

My answer would be D, here is why:

At the dawn of the information age, it became possible for American and other societies to be able to transfer information all over the world with just one click, this has increased laziness in our society dramatically. People these days are more likely not to go to a government office, then to just type a few characters. Going online helps government sectors to quickly spread the information they need to and make it “easier” for our citizens to file their paperwork.

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.

The average person falls asleep in seven minutes, but I couldn’t sleep, not after hours, and it made my boots lighter to be around his things, and to touch stuff that he had touched, and to make the hangers hang a little straighter, even though I knew it didn’t matter. How does the narration affect Oskar’s credibility in this excerpt? His insomnia renders him sleep deprived and confused. His efforts to soothe himself render him earnest and genuine. His obsessive straightening makes him seem unstable. His hopeless resignation makes him seem desperate.

The correct answer is B) his efforts to soothe himself rendered him earnest and genuine.

The narrator affects Oskar’s credibility in the excerpt in that his efforts to soothe himself rendered him earnest and genuine.

The passage is an excerpt of the novel “Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close”, written by Jonathan Safran Foer in 2005. In the story, the narrator is Oskar Shell, a 9-year-old boy. In the story, Oskar finds a key that belonged to his father that was killed in the terrible incidents of the September 11 terrorists attacks in the World Trade Center, in New York. So, regarding the excerpt, the narrator affects Oskar’s credibility in that his efforts to soothe himself rendered him earnest and genuine.

Read the following excerpt taken from the US Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The case coming on for a hearing before the Supreme Court, that court was of opinion that the law under which the prosecution had was constitutional, and denied the relief prayed for by the petitioner. Ex parte Plessy, 45 La.Ann. 80. Whereupon petitioner prayed for a writ of error from this court, which was allowed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Louisiana. MR. JUSTICE BROWN, after stating the case, delivered the opinion of the court. This case turns upon the constitutionality of an act of the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana, passed in 1890, providing for separate railway carriages for the white and colored races. Acts 1890, No. 111, p. 152. The first section of the statute enacts “that all railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in this State shall provide equal but separate accommodations for the white and colored races by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations: Provided, That this section shall not be construed to apply to street railroads. No person or persons, shall be admitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them on account of the race they belong to.” The Supreme Court’s ruling in Plessy v. Ferguson was problematic because

In the Plessy v. Ferguson case, the Supreme Court’s ruling of the “separate but equal” law being constitutional was problematic because the “separate but equal” law accepted segregation and the discrimination that were against blacks.

An anthropologist finds bone that her instruments measure it as 0.717% of the amount of carbon-14 the bones would have contained when the person was alive. How long ago did the person die? The half life of carbon 14 is 5,730 years. Round your answer to the nearest thousand . ****PLEASE HELP****

The relationship for radioactive decay is given by:

N(t) = N₀ * exp(-kt), where k is the decay constant.

We may substitute k using the equation:
k = 0.693 / t₀.₅, where t₀.₅ is the half life of the substance

The equation becomes:

N(t) = N₀ * exp(-0.693t / t₀.₅)

The ratio of N(t) : N₀ is 0.717%, or 0.00717. Using this

0.00717 = exp(-0.693t / 5,730)

0.693t = 28,294
t = 40,828.3

The person was alive almost 41,000 years ago.
