For the radio station analysis paper I decided to listen to Cleveland’s Z 107.9 FM. I listened to their morning show hosted by comedian Rickey Smiley and the rest of his crew. I listened to the Rickey Smiley morning show because this is a show that I listen to on a regular basis. On the Rickey Smiley morning show they play some of the top songs with some throwback songs mixed in but they also have skits and shows that they put on for the audience. They have a segment called paternity test Tuesday’s that I find hilarious. While these segments are fictional they are still entertaining because they provide the element of somebody else’s drama that everybody loves to distract them from their own. Z 107.9 is owned by the radio conglomerate Radio One, which is owned by Kathy Hughes. Radio One and Mrs. Hughes own many different radio stations across the country including my favorite station at home in Washington DC 93.9 WKYS. The Radio One home office is also located in the Washington DC area. Kathy Hughes also owns the television company TV One. Some radio shows have been able to cross over and also have a television program. For example the Rickey Smiley show also has a television version or segment of for his show. Another reason that I enjoy listening to some of the more of the shows on Z107.9 is because I know I will be able to listen to them in other places. The greatest example of this being the Rickey Smiley shows. Not only is it broadcast in the Cleveland area but it is also available in cities such as Atlanta and Washington DC. The general manager of Z107.9 is Elisabeth Logan, and the program director is Rochelle Frazier. This station is located in the heart of downtown Cleveland at 6555 Carnegie Avenue Suite 100. Z107.9 has a total of 6 shows going all day and all weeklong. They have different host like Ro Digga, Lil D, Rickey Smiley, Peter Parker, Paigion,…...

...Z Score Model analysis of Tecumseh Products Company | BY: Shelly Koeck September 24, 2012 Tecumseh Products Company is an industrial goods company that manufactures hermetically-sealed compressors for residential and specialty air conditioning, home refrigerators and freezers, and commercial refrigeration. Tecumseh competes in the same arena as General Electric Company. Tecumseh Products Company employees 6,100 people and are located in Ann Arbor, MI. The company currently has 18.48 M outstanding shares of which 311.16 K shares are at this time shorted by private and institutional investors with about 12.8 days to cover all short positions. Tecumseh has accumulated about 46.2M in cash with 7.8 M of positive cash flow from operations. The Z-Score is a multi-factor model that measures the financial health and economic stability of a company. The score is then used to predict the probability of a firm going into bankruptcy within the next 24 months or two fiscal years from the day stated on the accounting statements used to calculate it. The model uses five business ratios that are weighted according to algorithm of Professor Edward Altman who developed it in the late 1960s at New York University. The factors that make up the algorithm are: First Factor: Working Capital / Total Assets = 101.1M/562.5M = .18 Second Factor: Retained Earnings / Total Assets = 317.9M/562.5M= .57 Third Factor: EBITDA / Total Assets= (22.4M)/562.5M= (.04) Fourth Factor: Market Value of......

Z Score Analysis

...PREDICTING FINANCIAL DISTRESS OF COMPANIES: REVISITING THE Z-SCORE AND ZETA® MODELS Edward I. Altman* July 2000 *Max L. Heine Professor of Finance, Stern School of Business, New York University. This paper is adapted and updated from E. Altman, “Financial Ratios, Discriminant Analysis and the Prediction of Corporate Bankruptcy,” Journal of Finance, September 1968; and E. Altman, R. Haldeman and P. Narayanan, “Zeta Analysis: A New Model to Identify Bankruptcy Risk of Corporations,” Journal of Banking & Finance, 1, 1977. Predicting Financial Distress of Companies: Revisiting the Z-Score and ZETA® Models Background This paper discusses two of the venerable models for assessing the distress of industrial corporations. These are the so-called Z-Score model (1968) and ZETA® 1977) credit risk model. Both models are still being used by practitioners throughout the world. The latter is a proprietary model for subscribers to ZETA Services, Inc. (Hoboken, NJ). The purpose of this summary are two-fold. First, those unique characteristics of business failures are examined in order to specify and quantify the variables which are effective indicators and predictors of corporate distress. By doing so, I hope to highlight the analytic as well as the practical value inherent in the use of financial ratios. Specifically, a set of financial and economic ratios will be analyzed in a corporate distress prediction context using a multiple discriminant statistical methodology.......

Air-Conditioning Systems Simulation and Energy Saving and Economic Analysis for Waiting Hall of Tianjin Railway Station

...Thesis Proposal Air-conditioning Systems Simulation and Energy Saving and Economic Analysis for Waiting Hall of Tianjin Railway Station Introduction Energy saving of buildings is ever-increasingly emphasized by modern society. With the emergence of innovative technologies, new materials, and sophisticated architectural design, designers are hard to know the energy consumption of a building. It will reduce the real meaning of building's energy consumption test if we conduct this test on a building already built. Therefore, it is recommended to simulate a building's energy consumption within project design stages. Owing to the complexity of the air conditioning process and the mechanism of thermal components, the work of analysis and computation is time-consuming. Meanwhile, simulation software advantages over the traditional way in the application of design compare and equipment selection. In a nutshell, building energy simulation softwares play a vital role in the analysis of building energy consumption. Tianjin Railway Station is the main railway transport hub of Tianjin city. With the help of software to simulate its air conditioning system and conduct energy analysis, we can obtain some salutary design advices, which are beneficial to the energy saving of Tianjin Railway Station.

The Station Agent

...The Station Agent: Isolation at a Glance The feeling of isolation is by far one of the worst feelings that one can experience. Isolation is the state where one separates themselves or is separated by people or groups. When in isolation it is very difficult for someone to come and comfort or break the barrier that has been built. The barrier is built in order to keep others away. It is the state of solitude. In the movie, The Station Agent, I believe the main theme was isolation. Isolation was a factor that played for all three main characters; Fin, who isolated himself from society because of his appearance, Joe, who isolated himself from friends because of his father’s business and Olivia, who isolated herself after the death of her son and the separation from her husband. The only way isolation can be prevented for these three characters is for them to feel a sense of belonging. Finbar McBride, also known as Fin is a little person. He does not like socializing with others, instead he much rather enjoys being left alone. In the beginning of the movie, I begin to think that maybe Fin loves trains so much because it’s a way for him to hide behind them. At work, in the train toy shop, he stands behind shelves and desks, making him barely noticeable and even outside near the train tracks, he tends to explore underneath the train. This focuses the movie on him being behind the bigger picture most of the time. Fin enjoys being left alone and isolated because it seems to be......

London Victoria Station: the Railway Concourse: ‘Intelligible’ and ‘Place Making’ Environments, an Analysis of London Victoria.

...__________________________________________________________________________________________ LONDON VICTORIA STATION an analysis of the spatial complexity of the railway concourse. SHRUTI S SHETTY Advanced Architectural Studies University College London, UK. ABSTRACT With the development of the railways, the identity of the railway concourse has changed over the last century. The design of railways stations is one of the most challenging practices and the concourse design must provide for large fluid spaces to facilitate rapid movement. In addition to these, the modern station demands much more from a railway concourse. The National Rail has chalked out the key requirements for every station with Security, Information, Navigation and Facilities as one of the few Basic needs followed by Higher-level needs such as Retail and Catering. In the life of all cities, the railway station plays an important role in the day-to-day life of its citizens and thereby a constant effort has been made to keep up with increasing requirements of the concourse yet maintaining the fluidity of spaces. This report discusses the effect of a concourse layout and its relation with the urban context on the process of ‘navigation’ and ‘way finding’ in the system. Another aspect of railways stations is the way it fits into the urban system which determines the nature of the concourse and the way people interact with the space. Liverpool street station gives an impression of it being an enclosed......

Z-Score

... Investment Valuation Assignment On Altman’s Z-Score Submitted By: A Sreekanth Vidyasagar Garvit Sharma A Dixit Altman Z-score The Z-score formula for predicting bankruptcy was published in 1968 by Edward I. Altman, who was, at the time, an Assistant Professor of Finance at New York University. The formula may be used to predict the probability that a firm will go into bankruptcy within two years. Z-scores are used to predict corporate defaults and an easy-to-calculate control measure for the financial distress status of companies in academic studies. The Z-score uses multiple corporate income and balance sheet values to measure the financial health of a company. Z score bankruptcy model: Z = 1.2X1 + 1.4X2 + 3.3X3 + 0.6X4 + .999X5 Explanation X1: The Working Capital/Total Assets (WC/TA) ratio is a measure of the net liquid assets of the firm relative to the total capitalization. Working capital is defined as the difference between current assets and current liabilities. Ordinarily, a firm experiencing consistent operating losses will have shrinking current assets in relation to total assets. Altman found this one proved to be the most valuable liquidity ratio comparing with the current ratio and the quick ratio. This is however the least significant of the five factors...
