Rational Based Developmental Theory
At the moment of conception of a child, parents have already started planning for their child’s future. As in this case, John and Sue must decide which child care provider would provide their 8 week old baby, Tyree, the best start to her future. Although Child Care B is less expensive than Child Care A, Tyree is not as independent as the other children so she will need more attention given to her while she is awake. Child Care A has enough staff that Tyree can have the care she needs immediately instead of having to wait for a staff member to get to her like she would with Child Care B. Therefore, I choose Child Care A as the best facility for Tyree to develop cognitively as well as receive the bonding she needs for her emotional and social development. According to Piaget, Tyree is in the sensorimotor stage, which is the first stage of cognitive development and is from birth to 2 years of age and thought is based primarily on action. (Bukatko, 2008, pg200-202) Piaget’s theory develops a cognitive structure for Tyree when choosing Child Care A. Cognitive psychology studies the mental processes, like perception, learning and memory. Infants learn by repetition and the use of their senses. By seeing the caregiver on a regular bases Tyree will learn whom she can trust, she will also learn to perceive those in Child Care A as a safe, friendly and loving place. Child Care A will only be beneficial to Tyree if the parents are consistent with their care of her. This is when nature vs. nurture would come into play. During infancy a child needs to have consistency, predictability, and reliability in their caregivers. This includes the parents as well as the child care provider. Child Care A provides a safe…...

...BU224-02 Microeconomics Problem - 1 A) In the absence of any price floor, consumer surplus is the area below the demand curve but above the equilibrium price. Equilibrium price = $0.13 Equilibrium quantity = 211.5 billion pound. So, consumer surplus = ½ * (0.2-0.13)*211.5 = $7.403 billion B) Producer surplus is the area above the supply curve but below the equilibrium price. Producer surplus = ½ *(0.13-0.06)*211.5 = $7.403 billion C) Total surplus = consumer surplus + producer surplus = $7.403 billion + $7.403 billion = $14.806 billion D) With the price floor at $0.17 per pound, consumer surplus is the area below the demand curve but above the price. Consumer surplus = ½ * (0.20-0.17)*211 = $3.165 billion E) With the price floor at $0.17 per pound, producer surplus is the area above the supply curve but below the price. Producer surplus = ½* (0.17-0.06)*212.5 = $11.688 billion F) USDA buys 1.5 billion pounds of cheese at a price $0.17 per pound. So, USDA spends $0.17*1.5 billion = $0.255 billion G) Total surplus when there is price floor = consumer surplus + producer surplus - money spent by the USDA = $3.165+$11.688-$0.255 = $14.598 billion H) This is less than the total surplus without price floor.

...Unit 4 Assignment: Problem 1 & 2 Name: - Sydney Gerald Course Number: - AB224 Section Number: - 04 Unit Number: - 4 Date: - March 21st 2014 Problem 1 Suppose that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers the price floor for cheese, set at $0.17 per pound of cheese. (In real life, the actual price floor was officially set at $16.10 per hundredweight of cheese. One hundredweight is 100 pounds.) At that price, according to data from the USDA, the quantity of cheese produced in 2009 by U.S. producers was 212.5 billion pounds, and the quantity demanded was 211 billion pounds. To support the price of cheese at the price floor, the USDA had to buy up 1.5 billion pounds of cheese. The accompanying diagram shows supply and demand curves illustrating the market for cheese. [pic] a. In the absence of a price floor, the maximum price that a few of the consumers are willing to pay is $0.20 for a pound of cheese whereas the market equilibrium price is $0.13 per pound. The graph also shows that the minimum price at which a few of the producers are willing to sell is $0.06 per pound. In the absence of a price floor, how much consumer surplus is created? b. How much producer surplus? c. What is the total surplus d.

...Deborah Rodriguez April 22, 2014 Social Security & Disability Seminar Assignment Unit 4 In unit four, we learned about the attorney fees that came up with our assignment. There are two main sources of attorney’s fees in Social Security cases. Most awards by far are paid by the claimant, usually out of past-due benefits. Another source of fees is the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA), a federal fee-shifting statute. For the most part, attorney’s fees for OASDI and SSI claims are governed by the same or similar rules. Many of the same rules apply also to non-attorney representatives. Attorney’s fees paid out of the claimant’s benefits are regulated by statute and regulations. Fees for claims resolved within SSA are authorized at the administrative level where the final decision is reached. Thus, administrative law judges approve fees in cases where a favorable hearing decision was issued, and the Appeals Council authorizes fees in cases decided finally only by the Appeals Council. The representative must file a request for fees in writing, which must include a list of services performed, the amount of the fee, and any expenses incurred. SSA considers a number of factors when evaluating a representative’s request for fees, including the type and amount of services performed, the difficulty of the case (including the skill required of the representative), and the results achieved. Although the amount of benefits received is taken into consideration, it does...

What conclusions can you draw about the supply of and demand for labor at Yahoo? The conclusion about the supply would be for Yahoo to try to continue to do what they were doing when the old internet of Yahoo when business was booming but little twist to getting involved in the new internet. The twist of getting the new internet into their business would be the demand of their supply. Something that can attract the new generation especially since it’s all about the internet and the new technology. I also think that Yahoo should partner with other investors that will help advertise their business. Example would be like Samsung and Amazon Fire use google or have the google app already on their devices. So going into business with another company/investor can also help them as well. 2. What actions might Yahoo take to strengthen its internal recruiting? How might these efforts support Yahoo’s corporate strategy? Some actions that yahoo can take to strengthen its internal recruiting would be to advance in careers and to have the employees share their ideas. It states that Yahoo is seeking pathways for growth so since the employees already have an idea of what the company is expecting or may need; maybe promoting someone into office and having them share their ideas on what the company needs can strengthen the company...

...it 4 as1PAUL LILLY TEREASA KATYNSKI UNIT 4 STUDY 1 Overcoming the perils of Canoe Lake * Describe the general structure of skin Epidermis, and Dermis The epidermis is the relatively thin, tough, outer layer of the skin. Most of the cells in the epidermis are keratinocytes. They originate from cells in the deepest layer of the epidermis called the basal layer. New keratinocytes slowly migrate up toward the surface of the epidermis. Once the keratinocytes reach the skin surface, they are gradually shed and are replaced by newer cells pushed up from below. The outermost portion of the epidermis, known as the stratum corneum, is relatively waterproof and, when undamaged, prevents most bacteria, viruses, and other foreign substances from entering the body. The epidermis also protects the internal organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels against trauma. In certain areas of the body that require greater protection the outer keratin layer of the epidermis is much thicker. Scattered throughout the basal layer of the epidermis are cells called melanocytes, which produce the pigment melanin, one of the main contributors to skin color. Melanin's primary function, however, is to filter out ultraviolet radiation from sunlight which damages DNA, resulting in numerous harmful effects, including skin cancer. The epidermis also contains Langerhans cells, which are part of the skin's immune system. Although these cells help detect foreign substances and defend the body......

...Assignment Instructions Unit: 4 Instructions: This week's Assignment consists of reading a scenario about Sandwich Blitz, Inc., and responding to four questions. Dalman and Lei have discussed two possible avenues to grow and expand Sandwich Blitz, Inc. One possible strategy would be to franchise locations. Another strategy would be to secure venture capital to finance an internal expansion by opening more company-owned shops. Dalman feels that he just doesn’t have time to investigate these options because he is spending an increasing amount of his time assisting the location managers. Lei noted that two of the location managers had exhibited a lot of skill in the management of their locations and perhaps a new position could be added to coordinate with the location managers. This would free Dalman to work on these larger issues. After reading the scenario above and your assigned readings in the textbook, paying particular attention to the section on authority, respond to the following questions: (Please number your responses 1 – 4 according to the four questions) 1. How would creating a new position between the CEO and the location managers help the business to grow? 2. Is promoting an existing manager the best option to fill this position? If not, what is an alternative source to fill the position? 3. Who within the company should make these decisions? 4. List the levels of authority (management) that Sandwich Blitz, Inc. would have if the new position is created. To......
