Explain the difference between act utilitarianism and rule utilitarianism.

What is Bentham’s “hedonistic calculus”? Give an example of how to use the calculus. 2. Explain the paradox of hedonism. 3. Why does Bentham refuse to distinguish between choices, between going to the opera and drinking gin? What would John Stuart Mill make of this example? 4. According to Mill, how can we make a decision without knowing the consequences? Explain and discuss. 5. What is the harm principle? Explain with an example. 6. Explain the difference between act utilitarianism and rule utilitarianism. 7. What constitutes (and what does not constitute) “harm” for Mill? How might this relate to the debate about freedom of speech? 8. How would a utilitarian respond to the suggestion that alien beings would be allowed to abduct involuntary human subjects for lethal medical….

Write about Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans for SAB.

Write about Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans for SAB. [Hints: 1-2 pages for each subsection (any of these plans: Incident Response Team, Incident Response Procedures, Restoration Procedures, Business continuity plan). These plans can be combined in one or more plans. DR and BC plans are sometimes presented in one document. It is important that you reference the template you are using to do the plans. Check out internet resources such as NIST Contingency Planning Guide. I don’t expect you to write a full comprehensive plan just a brief on one or two items like I said about 2 pages max per plan.]

· You are the head of public relations for a cruise line that operates out of Miami. You are shocked to read a letter in a local newspaper from a disgruntled passenger, complaining about the service and entertainment on a recent cruise. You need to respond to these publicized criticisms in some way. What audiences will you need to consider in your response? What medium or media should you choose? If the letter had been published in a travel publication widely read by travel agents and cruise travelers, how might your course of action have differed? In an email message to your instructor, explain how you will respond.

Identify and explain three (3) core value-propositions to accounting students to actively engage in teamwork processes.

BFA303: 2020, Semester 2 – Team case study Part B

 

Accounting students often complain that teamwork is time consuming and of ‘free riders’ not contributing to team processes and/or the final product. However, recent accounting academic studies have reported that in spite of student complaints, empirical evidence shows that teamwork activities embedded in the accounting curriculum hold numerous benefits to individual accounting students.

For example, Daly et al. (2015) found that alliance building activities embedded in teamwork increases intercultural skills and confidence. The question therefore arises; ‘What are the core value propositions to accounting students to engage in teamwork?’

calculate the torque that is needed to accelerate the arm at the rate of θ = 500 rad/s 2 for a) N = 1, b) N = 10, c) N = 100.  

A motor with rotor inertia of 0.05 kgm2 is connected to a load with a moment of inertia of 1.5 kgm2 through a pair of gears with a ratio of N. Ignoring the inertia of a pair of reduction gears and viscous friction in the system, calculate the torque that is needed to accelerate the arm at the rate of θ = 500 rad/s 2 for a) N = 1, b) N = 10, c) N = 100.   Estimate how much the torque/inertia ratio of a disk motor might be if it can go from zero to 2000 rpm in one millisecond, and compare it to the motor in Problem 1.  Using a timer circuit, design a pulse-generating circuit that delivers a range of 100–400 pulses per second….

Write a computer program that will perform a region-growing operation based on +4-connectivity.

Write a computer program that will perform a region-growing operation based on +4-connectivity. The routine should start at the 1,1 corner pixel, search for a nucleus, grow a region with a chosen index number, and, after finishing that region, continue searching for other nuclei until all object pixels have been checked.  Write a computer program that will perform a region-growing operation based on × 4-connectivity.

Describe the shape of each distribution. Specifically, what happens to the shape of the distributions as the sample size increases

Use the Central Limit Theorem simulation to explore the distribution of sample means for highly skewed data.

(a) Add 100 rows to the data table. Each row contains the mean for the sample size specified in the column name. So, column N=1 contains individual values, and column N=100 has means for samples of size 100.

(b) Use the Distribution platform to plot the distributions of the five columns.

(c) Describe the shape of each distribution. Specifically, what happens to the shape of the distributions as the sample size increases?

(d) Describe the variability, or spread, of each distribution. What happens to the spread of the distribution as the sample size increases?
