Please solve the following music theory question (ignore paragraph at bottom)

Question

Paragraphs are the building blocks of papers. Many students define paragraphs in terms of length: a paragraph is a group of at least five sentences, a paragraph is half a page long, etc. In reality, though, the unity and coherence of ideas among sentences is what constitutes a paragraph. A paragraph is defined as a group of sentences or a single sentence that forms a unit (Lunsford and Connors 116). Length and appearance do not determine whether a section in a paper is a paragraph. For instance, in some styles of writing, particularly journalistic styles, a paragraph can be just one sentence long. Uimately, a paragraph is a sentence or group of sentences that support one main idea. In this handout, we will refer to this as the controlling idea, because it controls what happens in the rest of the paragraph.1. Each system below comprises two single-line staves. Each upper line presents two complete
measures of music, each with its own time signature, and with all notes carrying individual flags
which renders it essentially unreadable for human performers! a. Above each time signature, label the meter (as simple duple, or compound duple,
or simple triple, or compound triple, or etc.) b. On each lower line, beam the notes to reflect the proper beat structure for that meter.

Question

Hi, I have a Physics’ problem which I would like to have it solved. Could you please help me out?

The

problem is: A pair of blocks (mass m and 4m) are separated by a spring (constant k, compression distance d) as they rest upon a level surface. When the spring expands, the blocks move apart. The ‘4m’ block collides with a block (5m) connected to a spring (constant 6k) to form system A, while the ‘m’ block collides with a block (2m) connected to a spring (constant 3k) and forms system B. Both collisions are perfectly inelastic and both systems subsequently display simple harmonic motion.

a) Calculate the ratio of the periods of oscillation, TA/TB. Simplify your resu.

b) Calculate the ratio of the oscillation amplitudes, AA/AB. Simplify your resu.

c) Calculate the ratio of the sum of the system energies to the initial energy stored in the spring of the ‘exploding’ blocks, (EA+EB)/[0.5(kd2)]. Simplify your resu.

Scenario A new owner has purchased Swagger Distribution Company a company that distributes clothing and apparel

Question

Scenario: A new owner has purchased Swagger Distribution Company, a company that distributes clothing and apparel.

She does not have experience with IT related

problem solving, so she is contracting you, as an IT consuant, to help. For Milestone Three, you will submit a document that suggests web technologies

for the company’s new website and that summarizes recommendations for information security practices for the distribution company and provides an example

of information security assurance failure. Take a moment to read the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric to see how the following information applies to the final

project, and then proceed to do the following for Milestone Three:

Web Technologies: Swagger Distribution is in the process of designing a new website using HTML5 (HyperText Markup Language).

For this area of the assignment:

 Write two to three sentences describing why a new Swagger website is important.

 Using the 15 Core Web Functionalities resource, create a bulleted list of 10 key functioning components of a website. Next to each function, add a

sentence or two about why this function is important. Ensure that you use the terminology discussed during the web technologies module. (Note:

CONTENT such as an About Us page, Contact page, or information on a page is not considered a functioning component.)

 Briefly describe a current real-world website that is using at least two of the components you suggested above.

 Provide a screenshot of this website, pointing out with circles or arrows the two components you are describing. (You can provide two websites if you

cannot find one that has both.)

Information Security: There is no current information security standard at Swagger Distribution. You know that one needs to be implemented.

For this area of the assignment:

 Describe the importance of information security for an organization, supporting with evidence. How could a lack of security affect not only consumers,

but a company as well?

 Summarize two key information security practices you recommend the company implement.

 Provide supporting examples/research/justification using a real-world example (e.g., when a real company was hacked and what the outcomes were).

 Be sure to use appropriate IT terminology for security assurance.

Guidelines for Submission: Written components of the project must follow these formatting guidelines when applicable: double spacing, 12-point Times New
Roman font, and one-inch margins. The paper should be 1 to 2 pages in length, not including cover page and resources, and written in paragraph form.

Five Star Hotel ELV (Extra Low Voltage) ProjectFive

Question

Five Star Hotel ELV (Extra Low Voage) Project

Five

Star Hotel ELV (Extra Low Voage) Project Located in Bahrain, the Five Star Hotel ELV project was completed in 2011. The purpose of this project was to install, test, and commission the IT, communication infrastructure, and services for the hotel. The ELV project was part of a total program to deliver 11 sub-systems, including installation of data, voice, music, wireless, and CCTV systems. The project stakeholders included the hotel owner; the consuant they had employed on their behalf; and various civil, electrical, and construction teams involved in implementing the ELV project. This case study focuses on the Audio Visual (AV) sub-system, primarily installation of projectors and screens in the meeting rooms and conference facilities. Renosh Thomas, as the vendor’s project manager, was responsible for issuing the client with complete drawings detailing the projects electrical requirements. Renosh knew these drawings needed to be accurate as these would be handed over to the civil and construction teams for use when building the sites. Bearing this dependency in mind, Renosh ensured his team completed accurate and timely drawings with the expectations that the civil and construction teams would complete the build and handover a completed room with all the electrical requirements as planned. The final phases of the ELV project required Renosh’s team to visit the sites, install, and test the electrical equipment. At initiation and during the project’s planning phases, the AV requirements were issued and communicated via drawings between the consuant, appointed by the customer, and Renosh’s electrical team. The product specifications were based on lessons learned and templates from a similar project implemented in Dubai. The project scope was determined via the bill of quantities, materials, and tender documents. Renosh received only electrical drawings for the sites and continued to plan the installation requirements based on these drawings, going by the assumption that they were correct, accurate, and most recent. Throughout planning, the electrical team was not privy to any of the civil or construction drawings from the other teams, and hence remained completely unaware of structural changes being made on the original plans that they were still working on too.

During installation of the AV system, the team encountered a major problem— the projection was fauy. The projectors and screens were not aligning, causing the projected images to be cut off and unclear. Upon investigation it became apparent that certain structural changes had been added, making Renosh’s drawings and calculations inaccurate. The customer’s response to this communication oversight was to respond by sending Renosh a full collection of civil and construction drawings including all the latest revisions. Renosh spent considerable time reviewing the drawings to identify the relevant adjustments. This resued in delays, rework, and wasted time as he ploughed through the drawings, many of which were excessive to his requirements. The problem the installation team encountered was that the ceilings had been elevated higher than the original design and this had been approved by the customer, who failed to communicate the new changes and approvals to Renosh’s electrical team. The solution required changing the location of the projector by a meter and the screens had to be moved forward by centimeters. Renosh revised and issued new electrical drawings to the customer that went through the approval process again. The site had been handed over from civil and construction completed with decoration. However, this vital communication error resued in the solution requiring reworking of parts of the site, such as opening the ceilings to access the electrical panels and make the new changes. This impacted the schedule by 8- 10 days, and reworked costs of opening, adjusting, and redecorating the site.

Questions

1. How did the project’s scope of changes impact the project stakeholders?

Explore the ways Curley’s wife is presented in Of Mice and Men. To what extent is she a victim/villain?br

/Below is the Plot Two migrant workers, George and Lennie, have been let off a bus miles away from the California farm where they are due to start work. George is a small, dark man with sharp, strong features. Lennie, his companion, is his opposite, a giant of a man with a shapeless face. Overcome with thirst, the two stop in a clearing by a pool and decide to camp for the night. As the two converse, it becomes clear that Lennie has a mild mental disability, and is deeply devoted to George and dependent upon him for protection and guidance. George finds that Lennie, who loves petting soft things but often accidentally kills them, has been carrying and stroking a dead mouse. George angrily throws it away, fearing that Lennie might catch a disease from the dead animal. George complains loudly that his life would be easier without having to care for Lennie, but the reader senses that their friendship and devotion is mutual. He and Lennie share a dream of buying their own piece of land, farming it, and, much to Lennie’s delight, keeping rabbits. George ends the night by treating Lennie to the story he often tells him about what life will be like in such an idyllic place.

Question

According to the articles and the data, what is Brazil’s fiscal policy problem in 2018?

a.The deficit is too

large as a share of GDP, and spending cuts are needed. This policy will bring the output back down to potential, and reduce the unemployment rate.

b.The deficit is too large as a share of GDP. Spending cuts are needed, but output is less than potential, so this policy could increase an already high unemployment rate.

c.The deficit is too small compared to GDP. Spending increases are needed, and this will help solve the problem of high unemployment, by increasing real GDP growth and bring output back towards potential.

d.The deficit is too small compared to GDP. Spending increases are needed. This policy will push output further above potential, and raise an already too high unemployment rate.

Wall Street Journal, Feb. 28, 2019

SÃO PAULO—Brazil’s economic growth disappointed in 2018 after a truckers strike almost halfway through the year slammed manufacturing, and government- and consumer-spending restraint sapped demand. The 10-day strike at the end of May, during which truckers blockaded highways around the country, haed shipments to factories, shops and hospitals and hurt Brazil’s key agricuural sector by slowing exports and deliveries of needed supplies. Brazil held presidential elections in October, and the outcome was unclear for months before voting, pushing many of the country’s businesses to hold back on investment. An economic crisis in neighboring Argentina, a major market for Brazilian industrial exports, also hit demand for those products. All those things have negative effects on growth, said Pedro Ramos, head of economic analysis at Porto Alegre-based financial cooperative Sicredi, adding that Brazil has passed through several tumuuous years that have included a deep recession, a president being impeached and removed from office and a giant corruption scandal centered on the country’s biggest company and its construction industry. It’s hard for the economy to grow, to find companies to invest here, with so much volatility, he said. Former President Michel Temer, who took office in 2016 after President Dilma Rousseff was ousted, reined in spending as he struggled to control the budget deficit and reduced domestic demand as a resu. Government spending was stagnant in 2018 compared with 2017, according to the IBGE. With the inauguration on Jan. 1 of President Jair Bolsonaro, after an election campaign in which the law-and-order candidate also promised to make changes to the country’s insolvent pension system, economists and investors are cautiously optimistic about growth in 2019. Indeed, some businesses in Brazil say they already saw a change in sentiment starting in the fourth quarter of last year, after Mr. Bolsonaro’s lopsided election victory, and economists are forecasting economic growth of about 2.5% in 2019.

Wall Street Journal, March 29, 2019

BRASÍLIA—Brazilians elected former army captain Jair Bolsonaro as their president on his resolute oath to end a political cuure of kickbacks and backroom wheeling and dealing. His administration, trying to build a majority in congress to approve a vital pension-system overhaul, has been delayed by feuds with the leaders of an alphabet soup of small parties that demand jobs in exchange for votes. There are 12 million people unemployed, 15 million living below the poverty line, the government’s investment capacity is shrinking, 60,000 murders, said Lower house speaker Rodrigo Maia. And he keeps pretending he is governing. However legitimate Mr. Bolsonaro’s political experiment may be, the Brazilian economy can’t get help soon enough. Since 2014, the government has been borrowing to cover expenses, pushing public debt to nearly 80% of total output. Previous presidents have tried—and failed—to fix the main culprit: an insolvent pension system that allows many public servants to retire in their mid-50s on full salaries. With pension spending now taking up about 44% of the federal budget, many economists see Mr. Bolsonaro’s pension-reform bill as the last hope to avert a financial crisis in Latin America’s biggest economy. Last month, Mr. Bolsonaro’s administration presented a bill that would impose a minimum retirement age and raise contributions, saving the country about $270 billion over the next decade according to government calculations. For the bill to pass, Mr. Bolsonaro needs to secure the support of more than three-fifths of votes in both houses of congress. Investors are skeptical that he will succeed. Brazil’s currency sank near a six-month low this week over worries that the pension reform would be delayed and watered-down.

Question

Can someone can help me please with this. ( Grammar also and proofreading)

Opportunity cost.

The

opportunity cost is the only choice that a business, an owner, or a firm have to make by giving up the others. For example, if you like Adriana Pappel dresses and someone send you an Anne Klein dress that cost $ 150 as a gift and you really like to wear that beautiful and well cut Adriana dress that just come out and tit costs $ 200 . Then if you prefer to buy that dress the $50 is your opportunity cost is $ 20. It is more about choices than money and resources. The choice that you made prevents you from taking advantage from the others.

Beside the choice, you can have a lot of money, time and expertise, but you won’t have the opportunity to take advantage on what come along with, The fact is because you are limited. The only one choice that you have can keeping you from knowing if the others choices are better than your only one and what if they could bring you more than this one and you realize that your unknowing choices are your opportunity cost.

Question

16. A young woman has a question about ABO blood types. She knows that she is type O but also knows that one of

her parents is type AB and the other is type B. Aduery or adoption are not possible, so the woman wonders how her blood type could have arisen. From the knowledge you’ve gained in genetics class, which of the following is a valid way to explain genetically how she received this seemingly impossible blood phenotype.

Select one:

a. This is due to codominance, where the alleles for blood type are both expressed in the phenotype.

b. This is due to phenocopy, where the blood antigen genes mimic each other in the phenotype.

c. This is due to epistasis, where expression of an independent gene has an effect on the expression of blood type antigens and the resuing blood phenotype.

d. This is genetically impossible to happen as there is no situation where these alleles can make an O blood phenotype.

Question

A Case of Impaired Emotional Recognition

Facial expressions are a common way for people to

communicate emotions. Some have argued that facial expressions are such a frequent and important way for people to communicate emotions that the human brain may have specialized, specific systems allocated to understanding the emotional meaning of these unique visual stimuli. One way to demonstrate such a possibility is to find individuals in whom brain damage has specifically impaired only the ability to understand the emotional meaning of facial expressions, leaving all other functions intact.

Ralph Adolphs and colleagues (1994) described a case history of just such a patient, known by the initials S.M. Patient S.M. was a thirty-year-old woman of average intelligence who suffered from the rare Urbach-Wiethe disease, which destroys the amygdala on both sides of the brain while leaving other brain areas unharmed.

Compared to twelve people of similar intelligence but with other kinds of brain damage and to seven normal people (i.e., with no brain damage) of similiar intelligence, S.M. had difficuy interpreting the emotional meaning of faces she saw. When shown pictures of faces that were either making facial expressions or appearing emotionally neutral, she rated the expressions as less intense than did both the brain-damaged and normal controls. In addition, compared to both brain-damaged and normal controls, S.M. had difficuy recognizing which emotional label belonged to the correct facial expression, especially for faces showing fear-type emotions.

In contrast to these problems in recognizing emotion in facial expressions, S.M. did not herself suffer from emotional problems—her mood was generally cheerful and stable. Moreover, S.M. was normal in her capacity to see and recognize faces more generally. When shown pictures of various friends, S.M. was able to recognize their faces easily, even if she had not seen a friend for many years. S.M. also was easily able to learn new faces. Thus, S.M. appeared to present a relatively specific deficit limited to the ability to interpret the emotional meaning of facial expressions, especially those related to fear.

Three other factors also influence seasonality Axial tilt Earth’s axis tilts 23 5 degrees

Question

Three other factors also influence seasonality:

  • Axial ti: Earth’s axis tis 23.5 degrees

from the plane of the ecliptic, or the imaginary plane line that joins the centers of the Sun and Earth. Because of this ti, one hemisphere is inclined towards the Sun, while the other is tied away from it. The hemisphere tied towards the Sun receives its direct, vertical rays, resuing in longer days than nights due to more intense insolation, or exposure to sunlight. In the hemisphere where the axis is tied away, the reverse is true. Therefore, axial ti determines the duration and intensity of insolation on Earth in the two hemispheres.

  • Axial parallelism: Earth’s axis points towards the same point, Polaris (the polestar) in the northern sky, all year round. The constant direction of the axial ti allows both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres to face toward the Sun at different times of the year.
  • Earth’s sphericity: Earth’s shape also affects the receipt of insolation. Areas along the equator receive the greatest amount of insolation, but insolation decreases toward the poles because the surface curves away.
  • The figure in the activity shows the Northern Hemisphere tied towards the Sun, with the Sun’s rays (yellow arrows) directly striking the Tropic of Cancer. Note that the circle of illumination at different latitudes, which indicates the length of day and night at those latitudes. If the circle of illumination cuts a latitude in such a way that the lighted portion is greater than the dark portion, days are longer than nights. When the darkened portion is greater, the reverse is true.

    Given these conditions, identify the effects of the three factors discussed above.

    Drag the labels to their appropriate targets, placing the descriptions of insolation in the pink targets and all other descriptions in the blue targets.
