Which species in the simulation is capable of nitrogen fixation?
Cyanobacteria.
4.2.
Members of which species in the simulation are commonly known as “water fleas”?
Daphnia
5.1.
Briefly describe what happens in the simulation when phytoplankton die.

7.1.
Based on your sampling, what do Bosmina in the lake eat?
Green Algae.
7.2.
Based on your sampling, what do Daphnia in the lake eat?
Green Algae.
7.3.
Based on your sampling, what do Trout in the lake eat?
Daphnia and Bosmina.

8.1.
After reading the above statement, did you miss any species in your gut content sampling? If so, which ones?
The specie I missed was cyanobacteria.
Exercise 2: P in the Water.
3.1.
When the simulation stops, record the population size of green algae (from the graph), and the dissolved oxygen (DO) level. Phosphorus input | Green Algae Population Size | Dissolved Oxygen (Mg/L) | 1x | 184 | 6.8 | 2x | 335 | 3.8 | 3x | 487 | 1.7 |

6.2.
Draw a line graph of your green algae population size data to show how green algae relate to phosphorus input levels.

6.3.
Does the relationship between green algae population size and phosphorus level indicate that phosphorus was a limiting nutrient for green algae in the lake? Explain.
Yes it does indicate that phosphorus is a limiting nutrient. With phosphorus at a normal level the green algae population does not increase in size too much. As we add more phosphorus the population size increases dramatically.
6.4.
Draw a line graph showing how oxygen relates to phosphorus population size.

6.5.
What is the relationship between dissolved oxygen and phosphorus in the lake?
The higher the level of phosphorus is the lower the dissolved oxygen is.

Deloitte Case 12-1

...Case Study 12-1: An Unlikely Alliance Florabama is a power producer of which Meyer Inc. is a 60% owner and Saban Company is a 40% owner. Saban has a cost-plus arrangement that permits it to purchase up to 20% of the power produced by Florabama at the cost plus a fee. The remaining power produced by Florabama is sold to third parties. The profits and losses of Florabama are split based on ownership. Sale, transfer, or disposition of ownership requires written consent of the other party in advance. Both parties are independent and willingly agreed upon the prior approval terms. The board is composed of 10 individuals that Meyer and Saban are able to appoint based on their ownership percentage (Meyer has 6 and Saban has 4). The board makes all strategic decisions and establishes operating and capital budgets. The board also determines the pricing of power produced and appoints the CEO. The CEO that was appointed was the COO of Saban and he will oversee the day to day operations of Florabama. Both Meyer and Saban bear equity price risk. Meyer Inc. also has operating risk since the decisions of the board are made by simple majority (Meyer owns the majority). Saban bears commodity price risk due to the cost-plus arrangement. Meyer and Saban are both variable interest holders. Saban has an equity interest in Florabama and it also has the cost-plus arrangement, both of which make Saban a variable interest holder. Meyer Inc. is a variable interest holder in Florabama due to......

In 1994, the New York City Police Department adopted a law enforcement crime fighting strategy known as COMPSTAT (COMPuter STATistics). COMPSTAT uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to map the locations of where crimes occur, identify “ hotspots”, and map problem areas. COMPSTAT has amassed a wealth of historical crime data. Mathematicians have designed and developed algorithms that run against the historical data to predict future crimes for police departments. This is known as predictive policing. Predictive policing has led to a drop in burglaries, automobile thefts, and other crimes in some cities.

...Lecture 12: Neurophysiology 1 Summarize the three basic functions of the nervous system Sensory: detects events and changes in existing conditions, either outside our bodies or inside our bodies Integration, interpretation, information storage, decision making: integrate, interpret and store sensory info to decide whether action should be taken, and to determine what that action should be Motor: sends commands to muscle and glands, instructing them to take appropriate actions: this is called motor activity Draw a diagram that shows the basic divisions of the nervous system In addition to astrocytes, name three other types of neuroglia cells and describe the functions that have been suggested for them Oligodendrocyte: give support to neurons by arranging themselves in rows along nerve fibers. They also produce a phospholipid myelin sheath around axons of neurons in the central nervous system Microglia: small cells with few processes. Seem to be the brain’s macrophages - they phagocytize bacteria and cellular debris, and can migrate into an area of damaged nerves tissue. They play a housekeeping role, and eat up neurons that may have been damaged or killed by disease, trauma, etc. Ependyma: Cuboidal or columnar in shape and may have cilia. Form a continuous epithelial limning for the ventricles of the brain and the central canal of the spinal cord Describe all the possible functions of astrocytes important in the uptake of glucose from the......

12 Angry Men Assignment

...Groups and Teams 1. Identify the dysfunctional and functional properties of the group in the film as they pertain to the problem the group is working on. In this film, the numerous functional and dysfunctional properties of the 12-jury men play a big role in analysing and evaluating the main purpose at hand, namely identifying the young man guilty or innocent for the murder of his father. The different roles the 12-jury men play in the deliberation of the capital murder case is prominent. Firstly, a role can be defined as a set of expected behaviour patterns attributed to someone occupying a given position in a social unit. Different groups enforce different role requirements on individuals namely; role expectation, role perception and role conflict. (i) Role expectation: Role expectation can be defined as the role others believe a person should play or the way others believe a person should act in a given situation. When looking at the Jurors’ main role in any court system and in the film, it is expected of them to decide whether or not the defendant should be declared guilty or not guilty. (ii) Role perception: Role perception can be defined as the individual’s view of how he or she should act in a given situation. When looking at the film the Jurors individual frame of position and prejudices influence how they individually perceive the case. Because the Jurors perceptions are unique it leads to complications in the communication process. In the film “12 Angry men”......
