[ad_1]

Answer:

C. whether or not the film makes a large amount of money upon distribution to national movie theaters

Explanation:

For a quality critique of a film, you should keep in mind if the sound enhances the believability of the film, how the lighting and photo make the film more beautiful and help the narrative, and wheter or not the colour palette matches the tone of the movie, for an artistic critique the box office has nothing to do, many of the most acclaimed movies ever gather little money on the box office, and the top grossing films in history weren´t that acclaimed. In movies Box office does not equal quality.

Zachary has been trying to work on an essay for almost three hours, but he can’t seem to focus for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time. What should he do so that the quality of his work doesn’t suffer because of poor concentration and lack of energy?

[ad_1]

Answer:

3 hours.          

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the time taken by shoe repairman to repair one pair.

We have been given that his assistant, who takes twice as long to repair a pair of shoes. So time taken by his assistant to repair one pair of shoes would be 2x.

The number of pair of shoes repaired by repairman in one hour would be frac{1}{x}.

The number of pair of shoes repaired by assistant in one hour would be frac{1}{2x}.

We have been given that together they can fix 16 pairs of shoes in an eight-hour day. We can represent this information in an equation as:

frac{1}{x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{8}{16}

frac{1}{x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

Let us have a common denominator.

frac{2*1}{2*x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{2}{2x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{2+1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{3}{2x}=frac{1}{2}  

Upon cross multiplying our equation we will get,

2x*1=3*2

2x=3*2

frac{2x}{2}=frac{3*2}{2}

x=3

Therefore, it take 3 hours for the repairman to fix one pair of shoes by himself.

Is Othello’s tragic flaw — the quality that leads to his downfall — jealousy or something else, perhaps credulity?

[ad_1]

Lady Macbeth is a ruthless, ambitious woman, who acts on the information her husband gives her about the witches prophecy without hesitation or thought of consequence in the beginning of the play.

Lady Macbeth is a manipulative wife who believes that her husband is not man enough to commit the murder.  She thinks that he is too soft.  In fact, she believes that masculine men behave aggressively and act violently. She wishes that she were a man, so that she could act on the prophecy and kill the king. 

Lady Macbeth, one of Shakespeare’s most evil female characters,  is depicted as a harsh, cruel and power hungry woman with no conscience. The only evidence that is given that Lady Macbeth possesses any gentle sensibility is when she tells her husband that she could not murder King Duncan in his bed, because he looked like her father sleeping.  At first this is the only vulnerability that is expressed about the character.

Later in the play, she does get consumed with conscience  and ends up suffering from terrible paralyzing guilt.

Another important factor in morale in later life is __________, which has a substantial impact on marital quality as well as other social contacts.

[ad_1]

Answer:    Joshua is correct

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.

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

Explain how the medical assistant can ensure the identified aspects of quality laboratory testing can be met. Provide specific examples

[ad_1]

Charlie had a waist circumference of 47 inches and a BMI of 29 this shows that she is overweight. BMI test level is high from normal ranges shows that she is at higher risk of disease. She should lose weight and concern to the doctor.

Further Explanation:

Body mass index (BMI) is a measured value derived from the height of a person and mass.

{text{BMI}}=dfrac{{{text{mass (kg)}}}}{{{{left( {{text{height}}}right)}^2}{{left({text{m}}right)}^2}}}

BMI indicates whether the person is healthy or overweight mainly used by physicians.

• Range of BMI in a normal person is 18.5-25mathbf{kg/m}^{2}

• Range of BMI in skinfold person is 25-30mathbf{kg/m}^{2}

• Range of BMI in underweight person is 15-18.5mathbf{kg/m}^{2}

The skinfold measurement test is used to determine a person’s body fat percentage and body composition.

In this test, we are the proportion of body fat by determining skinfold thickness at pinches specific part of the body. The estimate of these folds is determined the fat beneath the skin, also called subcutaneous adipose tissue.  

The tester pinches the skin at the site and drags the fold of skin away from the muscle so only the fat tissue and skin are being held. The skinfold thickness is measured by skinfold calipers in millimeters.

Skin test includes the seven locations of the body:

1. Triceps

2. Quadriceps

Choosing a primary care doctor or a specialist is an important decision, because the quality of the care varies. In a paragraph, describe some of the steps to finding a quality doctor.

Cervical cancer is the cancer of the cervix, which is a part of the reproductive system. Infection by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the common cause of cervical cancer.

Early stages of cervical cancer do not show any symptoms. As the disease progresses, the symptoms are more visible. Pains begin in the pelvic region during intercourse or at other times. There can be blood in vaginal discharge of menopausal women. Or, a vaginal discharge with foul odor are some common symptoms.

Though the exact role of HPV in cervical cancer is not clear, it is certain that HPV infection is one of the causes of cervical cancer. HPV infection is sexually transmitted. Usually, the body immune system helps prevent the virus from multiplying. However, at times, the virus evades the immune system and manages to survive. It alters the cell DNA and causes a mutation. This mutation leads to cervical cancer. Smoking, sexual intercourse at an early age, and multiple sexual partners are some of the risk factors.

Cervical cancer can be diagnosed at an early stage if one undergoes a Pap smear test regularly. Diagnostic tests like a punch biopsy and cone biopsy can help to ascertain the presence of cervical cancer.

Cervical cancer in its initial stages can be treated using radiation therapy. Some doctors advise having a hysterectomy, which involves complete removal of the uterus. If it has metastasized to other areas, then chemotherapy is advised.

Fortunately, vaccines are available to minimize the chances of developing cervical cancer. Being vaccinated against HPV decreases the chances of cervical cancer.

Cost or Price, Quality, Delivery Speed

[ad_1]

The term “worldwide market” has become a watchword for businesses around the globe in the 21st century. IT has become a requirement for any company’s achievement because internet buying has become a way of life for clients. It is therefore important to give the public what it wants by establishing an operations strategy, a method of knowing where the company is, where it is going, and how its future goals will be reached (Champy, par. 2).

Cost or Price

Production costs in the United States are a major problem owing to the low labor costs enjoyed by overseas rivals. These costs have caused many companies to seek foreign avenues and alternatives.  By following a comprehensive evaluation process, manufacturers can develop a strategy to compete with low-cost global competition and, in turn, offer customers quality products at a competitive price. The first step is for the company to know its customers by making sure consistent communication between management and customers occurs, more commonly known as a “customer-centric approach” (Longo). Second, it is important to create products where domestic production would be most beneficial for U.S. customers, and identify opportunities for products that would be best produced globally. This process, according to Longo, is known as “competencies analysis.” Finally, a target consumer base must be developed in keeping with future marketing trends. Longo also suggests that it is important to evaluate the competitive intensity of companies in the same or similar fields, both local and foreign, and to involve customers in the planning stages of new products.

One important factor in keeping up with Information Technology (IT) changes in the present economy is the willingness to create partnerships and mergers in order to stay ahead of progress. DuPont, long known as a scientific corporation, has now emerged as one of the most innovative companies in the technology field following its collaborative partnership with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and Accenture. The main outsourcing goal of DuPont to achieve decreased expenses for its IT activities and maintenance of apps was accomplished at a rate between 6 and 8% lower than the expected baseline (DuPont).

Operations Strategy in Global Environment: Cost or Price, Quality, Delivery Speed

Until the late 1980s, Canadian steel company Dofasco competed on price by producing as much steel as possible at the lowest possible prices. However, in 1992, it found itself in debt and losing money. The “competing on cost” strategy was not working, and the company realized it had to refocus by developing new and innovative products and providing its customers with solutions for high-quality and specialized applications. The business strategy was called Solutions in Steel and focused on operational excellence, technology, and innovations, as well as intimate customer relationships. By 2000, it was No. 1 among North American steel suppliers. McGraw Hill has included the Dofasco vignette in its sample study (Steelmaker, p. 2) as an example of the importance of formulating a successful business strategy.

There is no doubt that cost and price are two important factors in succeeding in business, but they cannot be the only factors involved. As noted above, pricing strategy is dependent on innovation, cooperation, partnerships, and updating information technology.

Quality

            In marketing, a positive public image does more for a company than offering more for less in the price field. Once the image is established, customers will be willing to pay higher prices for a dependable known brand. One example is Maytag, established for all time as the best appliance a customer can buy. Although partly due to a low-key television ad in which the Maytag repairman never has anything to do, the product has shown itself to be almost maintenance-free in operation. The words “made in Japan” were at one time indicative of low-quality products, but Japan turned things around by manufacturing quality goods—quality rather than quantity—in cars and electronics. This positive image has filtered into all Japanese products.

Company objectives, however, must be carefully defined in terms of quality. For instance, quality at McDonald’s restaurant is very different from quality at a five-star restaurant, which in turn is different from quality at a hospital. Just as cost cannot be discussed without bringing quality into the equation, quality is necessarily related to cost—according to David Pyke, “costs decrease as quality improves” (3). He notes that cost, quality, and delivery speed are interrelated, and one cannot be discussed without bringing in the other two, especially with the recent introduction of what is called “mass customization,” which guarantees rapid delivery of quality customized products. Pyke sets forth eight dimensions of quality as defined by David Garvin: performance, conformance, reliability, durability, serviceability, features, aesthetics, and perceived quality (Pyke 3). It is the customer’s perception of the product that takes precedence in a study of quality. Once that perception has been established, the public will overlook high prices or longer delivery times. For a new product, it might be that flexibility to design changes and delivery would come before quality, and once quality is established, cost can be determined (Pyke 4). In addition, quality must be directly related to human resources policies with reward systems supporting quality goals (Pyke 6).

Flexibility, reliability, and one point of contact—through AT&T’s Enhanced Virtual Private Network Services (Enhanced VPN) are factors that simplify Epta’s ability to be a market leader. Epta provides refrigeration units, display systems, and checkout counters mainly for large supermarkets or hypermarkets, and quality becomes a must in order to satisfy the companies that use Epta’s products. Global marketing relies on dependable computer programs that create one outlet for multiple markets, which leads to market demand on a global level (Epta).

Companies in a global economy need to clearly identify their internal competitive strengths and weaknesses, as well as external opportunities and threats (SWOT Analysis). Global corporate strategy management must take the competition into account. The aim is to develop and create sustainable competitive advantage. Management methods deal with quality criteria, product flexibility, and innovation as factors with the same importance as knowledge of costs (Araujo & Costa). If, in addition, a company can promise speedy product delivery and create trust among their customers with a quality product, making sure they receive it in the fastest possible time, their operations strategy will be successful.

Speed of Delivery

            Customers in higher income groups are not always satisfied with products that meet a need but have no distinguishing personal characteristics. In this high-tech society, they want custom-made goods. The problem has been length of time to customize a product and meet customer expectations without losing market share. Japan’s National Bicycle Industrial Company (NBIC) has utilized information technology to provide what is presently known as “mass customization” (Heiskala et al; Japan’s Personalized). It is a method by which robots, computers, and skilled workers offer high quality Panasonic bicycles within two weeks after an order is entered, using the customer’s personal specifications and creating a bar code that can be used throughout the whole process.

United Plastics Group in the United States has had to face the threat of labor-cost advantage abroad despite foreign producers disadvantages of longer time to market, higher transport and inventory costs, quality concerns, and longer response times. The company agrees with other U.S. based molding companies that molding must specialize. They can no longer’ rely on past marketing methods.

Mack Molding chose to change their product line in their overseas market and increase production of medical molding, which required smaller presses and allowed for faster delivery time. In their domestic market, they were able to supply “super-large-part” molding (Knights, par. 11). They developed special skills to mold large parts such as a golf-cart roof in a single shot and make large structural parts with cosmetic finishes. Mack looks for a customer that needs close contact between design and manufacturing to execute quick product design.

Product lifecycle management (PLM) is an innovative method of bringing new products into the marketplace in a timely fashion. It is both a business and technology strategy that is best recognized for helping to speed products to market. Research lists five core components of PLM for manufacturers to consider:

  • Product Data Management (PDM) A generic term for the repository that manages revision and configuration of specifications to provide a single version of truth.
  • Collaborative Product Design (CPD) Online conferences and apps for designing or visualizing distributed development teams.
  • Direct Material Sourcing (DMS) Automates quote application and promotes the reuse of component or provider to decrease downstream design complexity in the supply chain.
  • Customer Needs Management (CNM) Captures and manages customer requirements through development to ensure the voice of the customer is heard.
  • Product Portfolio Management (PPM) Gives exposure to the NPI pipeline status and encourages company choices to prioritize product financing.

                                                                                                      (AMR Research, par. 6)

            By utilizing this method, manufacturers are supplied with a faster time to market and increased market share. General Motors, by using PLM to simplify its IT infrastructure, has realized more than $1 billion in savings. By rationalizing global product specifications, Procter & Gamble saved millions of dollars in supply chain savings. Sony Ericcson achieved significant time-to-market reductions by modeling cost benefits of product features versus customer value.

The study determined that support provided by the single self-report is based on the reflection of priorities and LTCs (Yong, Olsen, & McGinnis, 2010). The individual level of services was for the professional users related to the social care and health care system. The quality of services of health care and social care are based on the individual to individual requirements.

Role of External Agencies in The Standard Settings Process

The external agencies have their own significant impact on the support and monitoring process for the health care facilities.  The quality oversight authorities pursue the higher quality of care services and protectors of stakeholders invested in the services. The oversight mechanism is enhanced by the external agencies from the regularity control of the federal state and for the local authorities.  The advocacy programs suggested by the local consumers pursue the incentives and guarantors for the quality accreditation (Yong, Olsen, & McGinnis, 2010).

The external agencies have their role in setting standards. The inspectorate healthcare monitoring process is for the activities for the social care and health care (Legalvision.com.au, 2016). The task of the body is to find the gauge ratings for the provided services. The selected standard ratings can help to the choices and services. Care Quality Commission (CQC) is an institute that works independently as a regular social care institution of England.  Medicines and Healthcare Product Regulatory agency (MHRA) ensures the care devices and medicines for the work equipment and professional manner (Almomani & AlSarheed, 2016). The executive agencies are ensuring impairment of quality in the organizations and safety of care settings. The perfect promotions of services provided to the service seekers are for the participants and by most members that are PROM ought to be practical and valuable at the individual level. As a matter of first importance, the main Concentration is on the individual levels that are implied for the partners and organized for the convenience of the PROM for people (Brin, Brin, & Brin, 2007). The process must be occupied with overseeing the care of patients and expert service providers over its more extensive relevance. Members showed that they would lean toward a PROM in the event that it could both illuminate singular care and help enhance benefits in general (Hunter, et al., 2018). The Healthcare inspectorate monitors all the services provided to the patient. CQC ensures the care homes, and services provided to the patient in the hospitals. The provided service analysis of CQC considers compassionate, high quality services and effective service. The medicine and devices of the work equipment facilitate the relevant information for the social capital (Hunter, et al., 2018).

The fluffiness of the basic needs is the prime requirement form the individual (Yong, Olsen, & McGinnis, 2010). The important analysis is based on the reasons that must meet the basic needs of the services seeker. The perspective of the staff member for the provided services is for the practitioners and professional for the liability and the responsibility (Bandura, 2004). The quality of services is motivated by the practices, efficiency, and professional attitude of the service providers. The comprehensive stakeholder perspectives are quality and relations with the social care services and complex multidimensional seeking of services. The tendency of perceiving the quality of services is a separate sector (Almomani & AlSarheed, 2016).

The support findings are single measures that work from the long term conditions (LTCs) to improve health care services provided to the people (Yong, Olsen, & McGinnis, 2010). There are several domains that can be identified from the LTC PROM, these domains causes’ limitations and potential barriers to the analysis. The identified potential barriers include traditional domains for instance quality of life functioning, less traditional domains, social participation, and empowerment of services (Yong, Olsen, & McGinnis, 2010).

The potential barrier is the focus of the social care context and health care units of England. The identified issues are highly applicable in different countries. Long term conditions (LTC) possess enormous challenges to the system of healthcare for the prevalence and complex exacerbated. The conditions include greater patients, engagement with the services, individualized care, and improved support of self-management (Yong, Olsen, & McGinnis, 2010).
