W3 Assignment: Computer Information and Screenshot

Please complete and submit both parts of this assignment:

Part A – Computer Information

In this assignment, you will investigate and learn more about your own computer. Review the presentation W3 Lecture 2 as it will show you how to find the information on your computer. Review the lectures for Week 3 as they will show you how to find the information on your computer.

  1. What type of device(s) are you using for class? For example:desktop computer, laptop, tablet, 2 in 1(laptop and tablet), smartphone etc.
  2. What is your operating system?
  3. How much system memory do you have (RAM)?
  4. How fast is your CPU?
  5. Do you have a 32-bit or 64-bit machine? A CPU can process 32 bits of information or 64 bits of information at a time (there are 8 bits in a byte). When you download software from the internet, sometimes there will be one link for a computer that has a 32-bit CPU and another link if it has 64-bit CPU. That is why it is good to know this.
  6. What is the size of your hard drive?

 

Answer the questions and take a screenshot of the system properties area in which you would have found the answers to questions 2-5.

American History Assignment IV

  1. With the times quickly changing, and the recent division among those who support the Federalists and Anti-Federalists, public rallies in the town center have become a common thing.

    For the next rally, you have been asked to give a speech regarding the side you support. After choosing which side to support, use the PowerPoint reading from this unit to choose a minimum of four of the six bullets from slide two titled, “Quick Comparison,” as the basis for your speech. Using these four bullets you have selected summarize how this political divide would evolve into the two-party system.

Capital budgeting

Module 4 – Case

CAPITAL BUDGETING WITH FUNDING SOURCES

Case Assignment

This case has two separate parts.

Part I: Capital Budgeting Practice Problems

a. Consider the project with the following expected cash flows:

Year Cash flow
0 -$400,000
1 $100,000
2 $120,000
3 $850,000
  • If the discount rate is 0%, what is the project’s net present value?
  • If the discount rate is 2%, what is the project’s net present value?
  • If the discount rate is 6%, what is the project’s net present value?
  • If the discount rate is 11%, what is the project’s net present value?
  • With a cost of capital of 5%, what is this project’s modified internal rate of return?

Now draw (for yourself) a chart where the discount rate is on the horizontal axis (the “x” axis) and the net present value on the vertical axis (the Y axis). Plot the net present value of the project as a function of the discount rate by dots for the four discount rates. Connect the four points using a free hand ‘smooth’ curve. The curve intersects the horizontal line at a particular discount rate. What is this discount rate at which the graph intersects the horizontal axis? 

[ Look at the graph you draw and write a short paragraph stating what the graph ‘shows’]

b. Consider a project with the expected cash flows:

Year Cash flow
0 -$815,000
1 $141,000
2 $320,000
3 $440,000
  • What is this project’s internal rate of return?
  • If the discount rate is 1%, what is this project’s net present value?
  • If the discount rate is 4%, what is this project’s net present value?
  • If the discount rate is 10%, what is this project’s net present value?
  • If the discount rate is 18%, what is this project’s net present value?

Now draw (for yourself) a chart where the discount rate is on the horizontal axis (the “x” axis) and the net present value on the vertical axis (the Y axis). Plot the net present value of the project as a function of the discount rate by dots for the four discount rates. Connect the four points using a free hand ‘smooth’ curve. The curve intersects the horizontal line at a particular discount rate. What is this discount rate at which the graph intersects the horizontal axis? 

[ Observe the graph and write a short paragraph stating what the graph ‘shows’]

c. Read the background materials. Then write a one-to-two page paper answering the following question:

Which method do you think is the better one for making capital budgeting decisions – IRR or NPV?

Part 2: Equity and Debt

Read the article below available in ProQuest:

American Superconductor switch ; Westboro company plans to raise money through a stock offering, Andi EspositoTelegram & Gazette. Worcester, Mass.: Aug 26, 2003. pg. E.1

Abstract (Article Summary)

“AMSC’s management and board of directors believe the decision to forgo a secured debt financing and to adopt an equity financing strategy under current market conditions is in the best interests of our shareholders,” said Gregory J. Yurek, chief executive officer of AMSC. The 265-employee company has operations in Westboro and Devens and in Wisconsin.

Finally, the Northeast blackout “shined a lot of light on the problems we have been talking about as a company for three to four years,” Mr. Yurek said. AMSC products, such as a system installed this year in the aging Connecticut grid and high temperature superconductor power cables and other devices bought by China for its grid, are designed to improve the cost, efficiency and reliability of systems that generate, deliver and use electric power. “We are a company with products out there solving problems today,” he said.

After reading the background materials and doing your research, apply what you learned from the background materials and write a two to three page paper answering the following questions:

What are the advantages and disadvantages for AMSC to forgo their debt financing and take on equity financing? Do you agree with their decision? How can a company’s cost of equity be determined? Is there a tax deduction from the use of debt financing? Please explain.

Explain your answers thoroughly. Be sure to support your opinions on these assignment questions with references to the background materials or to other articles in your paper.

Assignment Expectations

This assignment consists of a quantitative section (Part 1) and an essay section (Part 2) below. Upload both sections as one Word document by the end of the Module.

Capital budgeting (slp)

This SLP has two parts.

Part I

Every company has capital projects. The company you have selected must need something! Be it a new wing to the building, a new product line to be funded, a new piece of equipment, find one new acquisition your company needs.

Once you have identified the new possible investment item, what problems are you going to have in estimating the cash flow that might be emanating from the initial investment and problems in getting it funded? Issues might be:

  • Risk
  • Cost
  • Politics (getting it through committees)
  • Public Relations
  • etc.,

Identify a potential capital project for your company describe such a project and write a short summary of the problems you see in getting the funding to see it through. 

Part II

Examine the structure and activities in your organization and identify two projects or events that required an investment. One should be a ‘current project’ and the other long-term investment project.

For each project or event, identify the preferable source of funding. You may not have access to the actual source of funding so limit your paper to the source YOU feel is most appropriate. Then explain why you feel that source is most appropriate.

This is a Signature Assignment Expectation for FIN301 Module 4 SLP

There are 2 specific learning outcomes: 1) apply business theories, models, and concepts to guide analysis of problems and situations and 2) utilize data driven analysis in making business decisions.

A PROPOSAL ON HOW COMPUTER APPLICATIONS COURSE MAY BE REINSTITUTED AND IMPROVED TO BETTER SERVE ADULT LEARNERS AT THE ONE-STOP EDUCATION COMMUNITY CENTER (5 pages only)

Project: Final Project

 

You are the Director of an Adult Learning Program at the One-Stop Education Community Center. Until recently, the Community Education Center offered an adult learning course in Computer Applications. This course was discontinued due to low enrollment numbers and course evaluations that highlighted adult student dissatisfaction.

 

A civic group has recently approached the One-Stop Community Education Center with members needing to improve their computer skills. The Community Education Center’s Executive Director has asked you to write a proposal on how this course may be reinstituted and improved to better serve adult learners. Your proposal and corresponding presentation will have a significant impact on the Board’s decision.

For the Final Project, you develop a proposal and a presentation. The proposal will be developed in sections throughout the course. Each section will be submitted in its appropriate week. In Week 10, you compile the sections into one proposal document, incorporating Instructor feedback. The following guidelines provide more explanation.

 

 

 

 

Proposal

Identify specific details to prepare and submit a proposal for the upgraded class. Using the “Final Project Proposal Template” from the Learning Resources, your proposal must include the following items, all of which must relate back to adult learning concepts:

 

Executive Summary

  • Potential composition of the class
  • Important characteristics about adult learners

 

Historical Data and Information:

  • Student enrollment numbers
  • Student demographics (age range, cultural identity, and experience level of students—beginner, intermediate, advanced)

 

Course Elements

  • Updates and changes that need to be incorporated in the course to better serve adult learners
  • Rewritten course description to better market and attract the adult learner
  • Explain how you might best present the course for adult learners (e.g., group work, didactic information, media-based) and explain how your method of teaching this course incorporates the principles of adult learning theory.

 

Staffing

  • Appropriate staffing needed to support adult learners. Explain why this staffing is important for adult learners and explain your recommendation.

 

 

 

Technology

  • Appropriate technology needed to enhance course delivery. Explain why this technology is useful for the adult learning population.

 

Global workers

The globalization of business has shifted from trade and investment to the integration of global operations, management, and strategic alliances, which as has significantly affected the management of human resources. Individuals from other countries are employees. There are three main types of global workers: expatriate, host-country-national, and third-country national.

An expatriate is a citizen of one country who is working in a second country and employed by an organization headquartered in the first country.

A host-country national is a citizen of one country who is working in that country and employed by an organization headquartered in a second country.

A third-country national is a citizen of one country who is working in a second country and employed by an organization headquartered in a third country.

Attracting global talent has created political issues. For instance U.S. employers are having a difficult time hiring enough engineers and educated tech workers, but U.S. federal legislation restricts the quota for high-skilled workers to be admitted from other countries because of the high numbers of unemployed US workers.

Case Assignment

Task: Drawing on the material in the background readings and doing additional research, please prepare a 3-5 page paper (not including the cover and reference pages) in which you:

Write a persuasive paper in which you discuss the pros and cons to attracting global talent and then argue whether or not U.S. federal legislation should restrict the quota for high-skilled workers to be admitted from other countries because of the high numbers of unemployed U.S. workers. Please provide examples to support your argument.

Assignment Expectations

Your paper will be evaluated on the following points:

  • Precision – Does the paper address the question(s) or task(s)?
  • Clarity – Is the writing clear and the concepts articulated properly? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of response to the questions, or are excessive use of quotations how thoughts are conveyed?  Are headings included in all papers greater than 2 pages?
  • Breadth – Is the full breadth of the subject addressed?
  • Depth – Does the paper address the topic in sufficient depth?
  • Grammar, spelling and vocabulary – Is the paper written well – is the grammar, spelling, and vocabulary suitable to graduate level work?
  • Referencing (citations and references) – Does the paper use citations and quotation marks when appropriate?
  • Critical thinking – Is the subject thought about critically, i.e., accurately, logically, relevantly, and precisely?
