Chapter 1, pg. 37 1. How do smart grids differ from the current electricity infrastructure in the United States?
The regular electricity infrastructure in the US provides power to consumers, but does not information on how the consumers are using the energy when the smart grids are. It uses digital technology to save energy, reduce costs, and increase reliability and transparency. Without the smart grids, the electricity infrastructure is outdated and inefficient. 2. What management, organization, and technology issues should be considered when developing a smart grid?
When it comes to smart grids, being aware of the amount of energy you use in a household is important to remember. It would definitely help manage the amount of power used every month and allow consumers to make more intelligent decisions regarding it. The organization that should be considered is allowing the consumers to access information about their usage of energy consumption and production every month. This is where the technology comes into play. You shouldn’t want an outdated and inefficient infrastructure. Going digital, just like the smart grids are, would be good to do. Having fast technology that is reliable and quick enough for the consumers to use will build satisfaction in the business and help out a lot. 3. What challenge to the development of smart grids do you think is most likely to hamper their development?
Installing smart grids are very expensive. We have economic problems we have in our country now, which will make consumers more skeptical about installing smart grids for their household. Not only that, but the smart grids are very high in technology and can be challenging for consumers to understand it and respond to the price signals. If they spend $250-$500 on these grids, and don’t know how…...

I am asked to describe the management structure and its operational and financial issues. Research and identify the impact of potential change factors including the role of technology. UNIT 5 IP Introduction The organization that will be discussed in this paper is healthcare this organization is important to this writer because it is her chosen field of employment. It is important to learn about healthcare because of all the recent changes to the law on a state, local, and federal level. This writer feels in order to learn about the healthcare regulations you need to learn about your rights as either a provider or as a patient. Basic Legal Environment The healthcare industry has come up on several changes over the past years that lead to lawsuits. Some of the legal issues that the healthcare has to deal with would be HIPPA which is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act which protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information. OSHA assures the safe and healthful working of men and women by setting and enforcing standards and providing training, outreach, education and assistance. Patient documentation and communication which sparked the malpractice lawsuits over a decade ago, in keeping the patient......

...Unit 5 Assignment: The Rational Consumer Name: - Course Number: - Section Number: - Unit Number: - 5 Date: - Newspaper vending machines are designed so that once you have paid for one paper; you have access to all the papers in the machine and could take multiple papers at a time. However, other vending machines dispense only one item (the item you bought). You do not have access to all the goods (sodas, candy, snacks, etc.) at one time. 1. Using the concept of marginal utility, explain why these vending machines differ? When the newspaper is purchased the marginal utility is zero as u get the same satisfaction from any newspaper purchased and you have access to many newspapers but only need one.. Sodas are only dispensed one at a time and each time one is dispensed the marginal utility lowers. Marginal utility diminishes as consumer satisfaction declines as the amount of the good or service consumed rises. So as more cokes are dispensed their marginal utility will start to decrease. Amy is shopping at a dollar store. She is currently buying 5 bracelets that cost $1 each and 4 sodas that cost $1 each. The table below indicates the marginal utility she obtains when she purchases this combination. Quantity Price per Unit MU per unit Bracelets 5 $1 30 Sodas 4 $1 40 2. A consumer maximizes utility when the last dollar spent on any good generates the same satisfaction as the last dollar spent on every other good. Is this consumer......

...it difficult for partnerships to attract large amounts of capital and thus to grow to a very large size. 2. One of the functions of NYSE specialists is to facilitate trading by keeping an inventory of shares of the stocks in which they specialize, buying when investors want to sell and selling when they want to buy. They change the bid and ask prices of the securities so as to keep supply and demand in balance. 3. Suppose an investor plans to invest a given sum of money. She can earn an effective annual rate of 5% on Security A, while Security B will provide an effective annual rate of 12%. Within 11 years' time, the compounded value of Security B will be more than twice the compounded value of Security A. (Ignore risk, and assume that compounding occurs daily.) 4. When a loan is amortized, a relatively high percentage of the payment goes to reduce the outstanding principal in the early years, and the principal repayment's percentage declines in the loan's later years. 5. Consider the balance sheet of Wilkes Industries as shown below. Because Wilkes has $800,000 of retained earnings, the company would be able to pay cash to buy an asset with a cost of $200,000.

...confide to all aspects of the polices and procedures in quick timing. Another negative about having all polices and procedure is that they are constantly being reviewed and updated which makes it difficulty to apply them within each particular case. Polices and procedures are very lengthy and usually written using very tequnical language which makes it difficult for individuals to understand and incorporate them into particular case. Polices and procedures can also have a negative affect on responses to suspected abuse cases as health and social care professionals may fear not compliding with all polices and procedure therefore may or may not act on things when needed.

...maps can be drawn by hand, either as "rough notes" during a lecture or meeting, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available. Diagrams that visually map information using branching and radial maps trace back centuries. These pictorial methods record knowledge and model systems, and a long history in learning, brainstorming, memory, visual thinking, and problem solving by educators, engineers, psychologists, and others. Some of the earliest examples of such graphical records were developed by Porphyry of Tyros, a noted thinker of the 3rd century, as he graphically visualized the concept categories of Aristotle. Philosopher Ramon Llull (1235–1315) also used such techniques (Willis). A mind map contains that following 5 elements. The main idea, subject or focus is crystallized in a central image. The main themes radiate from the central image as 'branches'. The branches comprise a key image or key word drawn or printed on its associated line. Topics of lesser importance are represented as 'twigs' of the relevant branch. The branches form a connected nodal structure.(Buzan) BIBLIOGRAPHY 'Mind maps as active learning tools', by Willis, CL.
