    that finds explanatory factors of an event. A daily example would be to forecast the future economic growth of our country by selecting numbers of independent variables, such as oil price (x) that can contribute to economic growth (dependent variable y). McDonald uses Simple Moving Average (SMA) or Weighted Moving Average (WMA) to estimate the demand for its hamburger in the next hour. While both methods remove random variations in demand, WMA assigns more weight to recent data to make the forecast more responsive to changes in demand. Assume the demand for hamburger becomes relatively unstable; McDonald would switch to the Exponential Smoothing Model that can gradually correct forecast errors and systematically ages the data. When a commuter airline observes a steady increase in percentages of seats sold each week, they might use the Exponential Smoothing with Trend Adjustment, because it not only helps them to predict seat sales for the next week, but…

    a student who would be just sitting there with a blank look on their face and ask them if they understood what they were doing. Without fail the student would say “Yes.” I then followed up by saying, “Okay, show me.”, and the student would proceed to just sit there without a clue. At that point I would start to explain the problem to them and help them work through it, but if I wasn’t there they may not have gotten any help at all and would have continued forward without understanding how to…

    Globalization, in its modern form, came to Bangladesh in the 1980s with the expansions of the garment industry. Reaz and Jewel Garments, the first garment-exporting firm, was established in 1977, at a time when Bangladesh’s total export comprised of about 6.3 percent of its GDP (Ahmed et al., 2014; Rashind, 2006). In the 1980s, the South Korean firm Daewoo played an important role in the industry’s takeoff when it partnered with Desh Garments. Since the end of the MFA in 2005, clothing exports…

    IV: Rebuttals to my Characterisation of Reclamation In the above, I have created a model to represent to sociological phenomena of the reclamation of slurs. I have given an example how we can see this mechanism at work with respect to the word queer. Though this provides evidence in support of my thesis the question arises as to what measure should be used to more so test the effectiveness of the model. What should be considered and how can my thesis best be supported? The model which I have…

    of determination of 0,99 and this shows that 99% of the total variation in absorbance can be explained by the linear relationship between absorbance and concentration of the solutions. The other 1% of the total variation of absorbance will remain unexplained. The absolute correlation coefficient (r) is 0,99, which shows a very high correlation. As well as, because r is positive, it shows that absorbance increases as concentration increases. Figure 1 was then used to find out the concentration of…

    rate of E. coli growth over 100 minutes in a heated liquid growth medium. The prediction is that the control E. coli culture will grow at a faster rate exponentially over 100 minutes than the experimental bacteria culture. Consequently due to heat application, the experimental bacteria will not grow over the 100 minutes, and will either move into G0 of its cell cycle or will produce descending results as cell death occurs. The null hypothesis for this experiment is that the experimental E. coli…

    was pressured to conform to what is normal in our society. Like Harbisson, humans base a lot of emotions through color so it would only make sense to try and fit in. Cyborgs like Harbisson will become more prevalent in future society, hence creating a societal norm to merge with technology. The cyborg (Neil Harbisson) is the answer to reaching a singularity in part because he is legally recognized by the government and provides ideas about how we can change the way in which humans view the…

    One of the reasons why companies expand internationally is to have access to new markets. One such global company, who this writer happens to be very familiar with, is an automobile dealer group called Weins Canada, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Weins Group in Japan. The company got its start in 1956 with its first dealership network, called Yokohama Toyopet. The company’s founder, Kanji Miyahara Sr., saw an opportunity to diversify and, potentially, to add exponential growth in…
