No technology so you're forced to communicate face to face and actually pay attention to people, we become more mechanical and thus lazier with more technology. Con of no technology is no child porn.

Really though, I think it would help to look at the question from a perspective of as a contemporary, what would be the pros and cons, rather than, as a guy living in 2010, what would be the pros and cons.

19 Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. 20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. 21 So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled.

This is a very easy subject to write about, but I have taken like 7 history classes sooo, anyway.

Some pros in living in Ancient Egypt is definitely the Nile river and the fertile land around it. Also a huge pro is there is basically no threat of an invasion. No would could survive walking a month of a dessert to attack someone. This and the Nile are two huge reasons why they survived for so long. They also had a lot of gold which they basically used to decorate their Pharaohs.

Cons would be the weather. Of course it's the dessert, never ******* rains. Also a con would be really strict rituals.

Mesopotamia pros are the two rivers, Tigris and Euphrates. They served as transportation, food, and an easy trade route. Pros would also be a very innovative environment that have made **** we still use today. Pros are also that you could be the world's first literate person and first one with a religion. A big pro would be that you would be living in a very advanced place at that time, first government, good technology.

Cons would be that if you're a woman, you're useless in society besides from cleaning and cooking. Also a con would be that you were not going to get educated, unless you're really rich.


If i weren't lazy, I would type it for you. If you need anything just PM me. I could add a whole bunch more for you.

This is a long shot, but I figured it's worth a try.

Calculate the OAR using the band of investment technique based on the following. Debt=65%, 25 year amortization 7 year call at 12% (assume annual payments) and the equity requirement is 16%.

OAR is overall capitalization rate. My professor is a douche, this is a principals of real estate class that I'm taking as an elective and I'm majoring in economics. I'm pretty sure he is making this class 10 times harder than it needs to be, he never even went over this stuff in his lectures, he taught it during an optional study session that I didn't attend.

I have a paper for my FYS class regarding whether or not the city of Buffalo can be revitalized and if not, what its future may look like.

Do any of you on SWDC know of other cities who turned around their economy and became a good city? Ex: Detroit and Buffalo were once great cities but have since fallen from that point and become bottom-dwellers. Are there any that went from bottom-dwellers to great city?

Thanks for any help, +rep

I was a little rushed earlier when I wrote that. Two more recent examples for NYC can be Robert Moses and his use of eminent domain to build highways, parks, and other public utilities throughout NYC and you can also use Giuliani and his gentrification of Times Square in the early 90's.

So...what would be a good topic for a Business Ethics paper? I'm completely stumped.

My first thought would be about the NFL lockout. My primary focus would be the ethics of
-the owners asking for more money while refusing to make their financial data public (make sure to bring up the Packers as the only publicly owned team with open books)
-the owners pushing for a 18 game season with the recent concussion information coming to light
-the owners canceling health care after this season (not sure all the details on this)
-the NFL's recent outrageous fines for helmet to helmet hits but their extremely selective and limited support of former players

This is a slam dunk topic for a business ethics paper to me. If you're interested, I'll give you a sample thesis statement.

Another thought is Lebron James leaving Cleveland. There I would focus on
-the ethics of his "decision" (the event) where he made money at the expense of his home town fans
-how he devastated the economy there
-how he left without telling his team, and the backlash from his former GM (be sure to quote him)
-the ethics of the big 3 conspiring to play on the same team
-make sure to bring up the money he is saving on taxes in Florida

This is another great topic primarily because he screwed his home town that raised him and made a ton of money doing it...makes it a very emotional topic. Depending on your teacher you can put in a pic of a burning Cleveland Lebron jersey for extra affect.

NFL 18-game schedule is perfect. Don't know why I didn't think of that one. Thanks, umphrey.

Enron would be really easy, I could probably write a 20 page paper on that in several hours with no problem.

I need help on this Chi-Squared test... How do I compute x2 without expected values? Any help?

"A local car dealer is attempting to determine which gifts would draw the most visitors in its showroom. Any individual who visits the showroom and takes a test drive is given the gift with no obligations. The dealer chose four gifts and offered each for one week. The results are as follows:

Week............... Gift.......................... Total Given Out
1....... Four-foot metal stepladder........ 425
2....... $50 savings bond...................... 610
3........ Dinner for four at Ruth Chris...... 510
4........ Six pink flamingos..................... 705

Using a chi-square test, what conclusions can you draw regarding the premiums? Please write out all steps:

H0 and HA, Calculation of Test Statistic, Find Table Value, Compare. Should we reject H0? What does that mean?"

There has to be an expected value for all four of those things, since the formula is (observed-expected)^2 / expected. Rejecting H0 is just finding a table value much higher or lower than the expected value. The exact values should be in the book, and it should give a maximum and minimum for the null hypothesis (H0) to stand. If whatever you find is higher or lower than the max and min, then reject H0.

That's what I don't get. What I posted is the entire assignment. All the information I have is there.

My thought is the book intends for you to assume that all four gifts are equally as desirable, so the expected value for each gift would be 562.5. This comes about simply because in total 2,250 customers came in and the odds of choosing any one of the gifts would 1/4. So the expected value of customers who would choose each gift would be 2,250 * 1/4.
