...climate change, two other trends may produce major development challenges in the decades to come: the continuing growth of the world’s population and the economic growth in China, India, and elsewhere.” (Griffiths Pg. 6) These large scale problems will not be solved be any one nation, so it will take a worldwide effort to attempt to solve them. The Bible says “For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.” (Ecclesiastes 1:18) God will give us the knowledge we need to remedy these global problems but it is up to us to use this knowledge for good or evil. Many of the global problems that exist today are because of sin and its effects. World leaders for centuries have been building weapons to destroy each other, instead of finding ways to help each other. The Bible says “Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." (Genesis 1:26) God gave man dominion over the earth that we may take care of the earth not destroy it. When we look at all the magnificent things that God has created on this earth we should make it our first priority to take care of it. We know that the devil is our adversary on earth and he mandates that if he cannot have the earth then he will do everything in his power to destroy God’s creation.

...Scott Florio His 107 06/21/2014 Midterm 1. In August 1856, quarry workers in the Neander Valley of northern Germany discovered the remains of an ancient human unlike any other seen on earth. These remains were that of a primitive human with a large bulging brow and that was far older than any other remains ever discovered. This discovery caught the interest Johann Fuhlrott a schoolteacher and amateur student of natural history who made a very controversial statement, that humans are a product of evolution rather than creation. Three years later British natural historian Charles Darwin published his book, On the Origin of Species, which is a detailed explanation of evolution, and his theory on, “Natural Selection,” the idea that only the strong survive. Throughout human history we see a new type of evolution where people start to adapt their environments to suit them instead of adapting to the environment. This is the period where people started to use technology in order to make their lives easier and to take better control of their fate. Early technology may not look very impressive by today’s standards but thousands of years ago the use of tools changed the entire course of the world. This gave people the ability to gain better control of their surroundings and made life much safer from the elements and predators. Originally people were hunter-gatherers, roaming the world in order to find food by migrating and following their food sources, like the aborigine’s...

Since this is an exam, I am limited in the answers that I can give if you have questions. All of these points are covered in the book and addressed during lecture. 1) Describe the three basic types of music heard in original scores during the silent film era and cites specific examples from The Birth of a Nation. (10 points) The three basic types of music heard in original scores during the silent film era were Adaptations of classical works, arrangements of well-known melodies, and newly composed music. Adaptions of classical works borrow a substantial portion of an existing composition for use in a film. In the Birth of a Nation, classical music is in dramatic and action scenes. Classical works are played during Lincoln's assassination, and also during violent and action scenes in the movie. Arrangements of well-known melodies borrow melodies to create emotions, disposition, and set the mood. An example of an arrangement from The Birth of a Nation would be works such as tunes such as “Maryland, My Maryland” and “Dixie.” Newly composed music uses new music to create themes that stand for the aspect of the story. 2) What is the role of source music in Casablanca?

B- Describe the organizational forms a company might have as it evolves from a start-up to a major corporation. List the advantages and disadvantages of each form. The three main forms of business organizations are: Sole proprietorship, Partnerships and corporations. The main advantages of a Proprietorship are: it is easily and inexpensively formed, it is subject to few government regulations, and the business pays no corporate income taxes. Its disadvantages are: it is difficult for a proprietorship to obtain large sums of capital, the proprietor has unlimited personal liability for the business debts, and the life of the business is limited to the life of the owner. The major advantage of a partnership is its low cost and ease of formation. The disadvantages are similar to those associated with proprietorships: unlimited liability, limited life of the organization, difficulty of transferring ownership, and difficulty of raising large amounts of capital. The tax treatment of a partnership is similar to that for proprietorships, which is often an advantage. The corporate form of business has three major......

...Part 1 Mini Case: a. Why is corporate finance important to all managers? Corporate finance is important to all managers because managers should understand and know the health of the company they are working for. Secondly, managers have an obligation to maximize the value of a company for the shareholders of an organization. The decisions that will be made on a regular basis are all affected by the current financial state of a corporation. b. Describe the organizational forms a company might have as it evolves from a start-up to a major corporation. List the advantages and disadvantages of each form. The forms a company may have from the start up phase to a major corporation phase are as follows: The first step of a corporation’s existence maybe a standard business license as the company starts operating. This is normally controlled as a sole proprietorship. The advantages for this type of form are that: it is easily created and very inexpensive. This form is also subject to few government regulations and is taxed as personal income. The disadvantages include limitations in funding and growth available, the owner has unlimited liability and the life of the business is directly tied to the life span of the owner. The second form maybe a partnership. This allows more flexibility than a sole proprietorship but still has some limitations. For example, a partnership may have a few different options that include a limited partnership and an LLC. One......

Why is corporate finance important to all managers? Corporate finance is a basic component of how a business is run. All managers should keep this in mind to direct funds to the optimal division or product in a company. In addition, managers should understand how their company is financed and whether it has a risk of bankruptcy. Conversely, managers should understand if the equity in the business is undervalued and has the potential to grow. 2. Describe the organizational forms a company might have as it evolves from a start-up to a major corporation. List the advantages and disadvantages of each form. Sole Proprietorship: A type of business entity that is owned and run by one individual and in which there is no legal distinction between the owner and the business. The owner receives all profits (subject to taxation specific to the business) and has unlimited responsibility for all losses and debts. Every asset of the business is owned by the proprietor and all debts of the business are the proprietor's. This means that the owner has no less liability than if they were acting as an individual instead of as a business. Some......
