There are two key processes of cell division in the human body. (A) Mitosis and this is where a one celled organism divides into two individuals one growth and the other replacement of body cells. (B) the Meiosis, this is the production of sex cells, which are located in the testes and the ovaries and that cell is called the Gametes. The gametes is the sex cell produced by the meiosis which contains a reproduction of the 23rd chromosome set. Within the gamete process, the production of spermatogenesis or sperm production begins at the average age of 12 or 13 years of age in American males. The production of sperm produces throughout life and can vary from populations and the male can produce millions sperm cells at a time. Now on the other hand, the female go’s through a process called Oogenesis, which produces Ova. This division phase meiosis occurs within the ovaries during fetal development and conception around the fifth or seventh month. This is usually triggered by stimulation or certain hormones around about thee age of puberty to complete there development. Now when it comes to the polar bodies, the cells develop within the Oogenesis process, which contains little cytoplasm and does not develop until the Ova is mature. Once maturity is met and the proper cycle time is right, the embryo attaches to the wall of the Uteri's between the ages of 20 to 40 years old. Now at the midpoint of the cycle, the Ovum has matured enough to breakthrough the wall of the ovary, this is called Ovulation. According to the text, this peak cycle time and the female should be more receptive to reproduce and this time is called Estrus or sexually…...

...On the AMC hit television show, Mad Men, the main character Don Draper spoke very powerful words when he said, “People tell you who they are but we ignore it, because we want them to be who we want them to be.”. The main character of the novel written by Craig Silvey titled, Jasper Jones dealt with the troubles of, as Don Draper said, people ignoring who somebody is simply because we want them to be who we want.

Dow Jones

...The Effect of the 2008 Recession on the Dow-Jones Industrial Average On October 9, 2007, the Dow closed at its pre-recession all-time high of more than $14,000 per share. However, fourth quarter GDP growth was -1%, signaling the beginning of the recession. The Dow started falling slowly. After the failure of Bear Stearns in April 2008, and a negative GDP report in Q2 2008, the Dow plummeted to 11,000. Many analysts felt that this 20% decline was the market bottom. 2008 was a historic year for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the overall Stock Market. 2008 started off with the Dow Jones breaking down through 13,000 with massive volume. There is a saying that states that whatever the Stock Market does in January is how the rest of the year would go. The saying turned out to be true in 2008. Wall Street stocks were plummeting in January and were reduced by one half throughout the year. However, on Monday, September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy. On Wednesday, anxious bankers withdrew $144 billion from money market funds, nearly causing a collapse. In response, the Dow sank 13% in October. By November 20, 2008, it fell to 7,552.29, a new low. This was not yet the true market bottom. The Dow went up to 9,034.69 on January 2, 2009 before falling down to 6,594.44 on March 5, 2009. Between its highest and its lowest, the Dow plummeted over 50% in just 17 months. The stock market, as measured by the Dow Jones Industrial Average, has historically performed......

Edward Jones

...Page 1 of 3 Edward Jones Case : Team One In facing fluctuating markets, emerging competition, and evolving industry platforms, Edward Jones must continuously strive to maintain its strong brand status while steadily expanding its business. Its mission to build long-term relationships with clients big and small and provide excellent, comprehensive service from dedicated advisors has been the backbone of its success. The challenge Edward Jones faces is how to ensure it will increase its market share and be competitive in light of recent industry changes and uncertainties while upholding its client satisfaction. One strategic initiative presently contemplated is to reduce company costs by consolidating financial advisors in 5-10 person offices in large metro areas. While this strategy offers some benefits, we believe the opportunity costs outweigh the cost savings. Therefore Edward Jones should not proceed and consolidate existing offices in large metro areas. Currently, Edward Jones has 8,205 branches located in large metro areas. 70% of them are located in locations where there are more than 10 offices in the area, each office has one advisor and one BOA on average. If we were to consolidate these offices, we would close a total of 2462 offices and build 492 new larger offices. (See Appendix 1) We would put 5 advisors in one office while decreasing the number of BOAs to 3 per large office. From this, our expenses, including rent, utilities, and BOA salary will decrease......

Jones is experiencing a shortage of cash, which is needed to sustain anticipated growth in sales for the coming year. The company is in need of a new bank relationship because its current lender, Metropolitan Bank, is unwilling to provide Jones with the proper loan amount to maintain growth. Jones is introduced to Rachel Montrose, the relationship officer at the local branch of Southern Bank and Trust.

Jones Model & Modified Jones Model

...Jones Model & Modified Jones Model Theory and Practice What is Earning Management? Earning management is the process that one firm’s manager presents the finical statement in his favorable way rather the real performance in a certain period. “Earnings management occurs when managers use judgment in financial reporting and in structuring transactions to alter financial reports to either mislead some stakeholders about the underlying economic performance of the company, or to influence contractual outcomes that depend on reported accounting numbers.” (Healy and Wahlen, Accounting Horizon, 1999) Earning management is generally happened within the generally accepted accounting principle (GAAP) choice, under the GAAP, firms have the flexibility to make their accounting choices and required to do estimations on their finical report. The intention of the “flexibility “is to make finical statements can by more accurately present a firm’s operating result in a certain period, companies have to estimate numbers (such as expense) based on their assumptions for the future, but the problem is that GAAP doesn’t have clear boundary to define what is a normal estimation (legal) and what is an extreme estimation (illegal). Therefore as long as the manager has logically explaining of those assumptions, then their estimation is legal. By definition, earning is the sum of operating cash flow and non-cash earning (accruals). Thus, if a manager wants to manipulate a firm’s earning,......

...n the past several years, Jones Electrical Distribution is profitable, but it is in the condition of cash shortage. With its 2007’s sales go up, Jones need borrow more money to help its rapid development. Then he got a maximum line of credit $350,000. With our analysis report, we help Jones to choose whether to take advantage of 2% trade discount, we can observe that Jones’credit line will be $318,000 without discount, not $387,000 with this 2% discount. Problems Statement Jones Electrical Distribution’s current condition is not only cash shortage but also under rapid sales grows’ effect. Why this profitable firm needs to increase its borrowing, what kinds of strategies Jones Electrical Distribution will choose, and what his estimate of the loan needs is. These are the problems we will talk about bellows. Data Analysis 1. According to the balance sheet and sources and uses statements (appendix 1), we can see that the line of credit payable increases every year, because Jones needs more and more funds to support the needs of working capital and invest to long-lived assets such as plant, property and equipment to support higher sales levels. We can see that Jones used its profits (changed in Net Worth), cash and short-term debt to support the needs of working capital and the increase of inventory (probably to support higher sales levels). The reduction in long-term debt is a use of funds because Jones is repaying a loan. The decrease of cash is a source of funds to......

Jim Jones

...James Warren "Jim" Jones (May 13, 1931 – November 18, 1978) was an American cult leader and community organizer. Jones was the founder and the leader of the Peoples Temple, best known for the mass murder-suicide in November 1978 of 909 of its members in Jonestown, Guyana,[1] and the murder of five people at a nearby airstrip, including Congressman Leo Ryan. Over two hundred children were murdered at Jonestown, almost all of them by cyanide poisoning.[2] Jones died from a gunshot wound to the head; it is suspected his death was a suicide. Jones was born in Indiana and started the Temple there in the 1950s. He later moved the Temple to California in the mid-1960s, and gained notoriety with the move of the Temple's headquarters to San Francisco in the early 1970s. Jones was born in a rural area of Randolph County, Indiana,[3] to James Thurman Jones (1887 – 1951), a World War I veteran, and Lynetta Putnam (1902 – 1977). Lynetta reportedly believed she had given birth to a messiah.[4][5] He was of Irish and Welsh descent.[6] Jones later claimed partial Cherokee ancestry through his mother, though according to his maternal second cousin Barbara Shaffer, this is likely untrue.[6][note 1] Economic difficulties during the Great Depression necessitated that Jones' family move to nearby Lynn, Indiana in 1934, where he grew up in a shack without plumbing.[2][7] Jones was a voracious reader as a child and studied Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, Mahatma Gandhi and Adolf Hitler carefully...

...Current Position Jones Electrical Distribution (hereinafter Jones Electric) is currently facing an issue with cash flows, which will ultimately affect the overall profitability and growth potential for the company. The owner, Nelson Jones, is diligent in paying his suppliers within ten days in order to capitalize on a two percent early pay discount, but in doing so, has over-extended cash flows. Though the company has been profitable and growing over the past three years, its current lender, Metropolitan Bank, will not increase a line of credit (LOC) beyond $250,000, a LOC upon which Jones has recently fully drawn. In order to ease the tensions of depleting cash reserves, Jones is seeking a higher LOC from another lender, Southern Bank & Trust (SB&T). A higher LOC will not only cover overhead expenses and take advantage of early pay discounts, but could also be invested in the continued growth of sales, as well as, potentially opening new locations. After weighing his options, Jones is convinced that he has to take on more debt in order to keep the business moving forward. Thus far, Jones is only contemplating one financing option, a higher LOC from SB&T. The terms of LOC are not favorable when weighed against Jones’s objective to grow the business. SB&T will limit the drawable amount, control investments in fixed assets, and control Jones’s withdrawal of funds from the business. As such, Jones needs to reconsider SB&T’s offer and consider other financing......

...a. What explains the success of Edward Jones over so many years? From the time of its inception, Edward Jones has been focused about the customer segments, the markets and the products segments it wants to operate in. This focus has allowed Edward Jones to concentrate efforts and resources towards these segments and maximize the penetration within and profitability from this segment. The key factors that have helped build this strategy and the resulting success of Edward Jones are: 1. Geographic Focus with operating in markets with no competition: Edward Jones started its operations by opening up branches in rural areas. In its expansion stage too, it continued to open branches in non-urban locations. In most of these locations, Edward Jones was competing only with the local bank branch, which at the time was not offering brokerage services or was offering only limited options in this segment. This resulted in Edward Jones being able to thrive with almost no competition which added to its success. Also, by opening offices in areas such as shopping malls, Edward Jones was operating in high-traffic centrally located parts of the town and hence getting incremental walk-ins resulting in more business. 2. Catering to all Customer Segments, esp. the smaller customers: Edward Jones never wavered from its product strategy or tried to differentiate its service based on the amount of investment made by a client. It was also very clear about the end-customer being its......
