...curse over the values for the Work variable. Then with the cursor in Array 2, curse over the values for the Pay variable. Your COVAR data dialog box should now look like Figure 7. Press Enter and the value 39.63265306 appears in cell P4. Note that this value does not correspond to the “by-Hand” value calculated above. We will examine why this is so shortly. Repeat the above procedure for cell R4 for the Work-Promote Covariance {value computed = 15.83673469}; and for cell T4 for the Pay-Promote Covariance {value computed = 8.234693878}. Again, these values do not match those computed “by Hand”. The Excel fX icon function for computing the correlation between two variables is CORREL. Place the cursor in cell P6, click on the fX icon, select Statistical, then CORREL. Click OK to get the data dialog box for CORREL. The arguments are the same here as for the COVAR data dialog box. Enter the Work variable addresses in Array1 and the Pay addresses in Array 2, and press OK. The value 0.37409266 appears in cell P6. This is the same value we got “by Hand”.

...RIASSUNTO ECONOMIA E GESTIONE DELLE IMPRESE – LIBRO DI TESTO: L’ANALISI STRATEGICA PER LE DECISIONI AZIENDALI R. GRANT EDIZIONE 2011 CAPITOLO 1 IL CONCETTO DI STRATEGIA Diverse definizioni di strategia 1. La strategia è lo strumento usato dagli individui e organizzazioni per raggiungere i propri obiettivi; 2. Si definisce strategia la determinazione delle finalità e degli obiettivi di lungo periodo di un’ impresa e attuazione delle linee di condotta e allocazione delle risorse necessarie alla realizzazione di tali obiettivi. 3. La strategia è il piano complessivo per lo spiegamento di risorse necessarie a conseguire una posizione di vantaggio sulle altre imprese. 4. Strategia competitiva vuol dire differenziarsi. Vuol dire scegliere deliberatamente un diverso insieme di attività per generare un esclusiva combinazione di valore ( M.Porter) L’essenza della strategia, dunque, consiste nell’effettuare scelte. Affinché una strategia sia di successo è necessario: ▪ Obiettivi siano semplici, coerenti e a lungo termine; ▪ Profonda comprensione dell’ambiente competitivo; ▪ Valutazione obiettiva delle risorse; ▪ Implementazione efficace La strategia ha il ruolo di collegare l’impresa (obiettivi e valori, Risorse e competenze, Struttura e sistemi organizzativi) con l’ambiente settoriale (Concorrenti, Clienti, Fornitori) in cui opera. Le scelte strategiche possono essere ridotte a due questioni fondamentali: Dove competere? Come......

...the alt? I heard somewhere that this is accepted. If not accepted, then do we lose big time marks? If you get a negative NPV for an alternative, you should not be recommending it becaue at the end of the day, every company, even a non for profit, needs to be profitable to survive. If however you feel that this alternative is in fact very strong and touches on a lot of qualitative point, you may want to revisit your NPV calculation and the various assumptions that you have used - take a look at them and see if they are in fact reasonable assumptions (maybe you were too conservative and can adjust some of the assumptions a bit to allow you to get to an NPV of at least 0). I also have Negative NPV for expansion of Roma and Corral. It will take $6100, 000.00 to open one Roma restaurant and Income before tax was only $656,000 + the amortization. It is impossible to have positive NPV. On the other hand, Roco Coffee will provide 5% increase within two years and Debt to Equity ratio was under control, and divided also paid to the common and preferred shares. Calculation also revealed that Bread function should not be outsourced. Please help if some think I am doing wrong. I was wondering if someone else also had the same conclusion. Ali, When calculating NPV did you take into account salvage value, tax shield, etc? I find that often alternatives are built in such a way that NPV can be either negative or positive, depending on the assumptions. First of all, thanks for reply. I......

...“The Allegory of the Cave.” Excerpt from Plato, Republic, Book VII, 514A1-518D8, translated by Paul Shorey (Loeb Classical Library/Perseus Project). Socrates, Glaucon. 514A B “Next,” said I, “compare our nature in respect of education and its lack to such an experience as this. Picture men dwelling in a sort of subterranean cavern with a long entrance open to the light on its entire width. Conceive them as having their legs and necks fettered from childhood, so that they remain in the same spot, able to look forward only, and prevented by the fetters from turning their heads. Picture further the light from a fire burning higher up and at a distance behind them, and between the fire and the prisoners and above them a road along which a low wall has been built, as the exhibitors of puppet-shows have partitions before the men themselves, above which they show the puppets.” “All that I see,” he said. C 515A “See also, then, men carrying past the wall implements of all kinds that rise above the wall, and human images and shapes of animals as well, wrought in stone and wood and every material, some of these bearers presumably speaking and others silent.” “A strange image you speak of,” he said, “and strange prisoners.” “Like to us,” I said; “for, to begin with, tell me do you think that these men would have seen anything of themselves or of one another except the shadows cast from the fire on the wall of the cave that fronted them?” B “How could they,” he said...

Global Minority Research

...Ethnicity Research Project Introduction and History The Roma and Irish Travellers are an ethnic minority in England. There is evidence that the Roma originated in North India and started to migrate 1,000 years ago (Van Cleemput). They were forced out of India and used as slaves. I cannot imagine being forced from my homeland and being forced to work for free. The Roma and Irish Travellers face hostility and persecution. The first anti-gypsy law was passed under Henry the VIII (Van Cleemput). I cannot even fathom being told that just because I live a certain lifestyle that I am not allowed to live in a certain area. In the United States, we are faced with discrimination against lesbian and gay couples. Although, they are not allowed to marry, we do not tell them where they can and cannot live. The Roma and Irish Travellers started to travel in small family groups at first (Gmelch and Gmelch). The Roma hold their family close to them. If anything was to happen to anyone in the family they tend to get closer and closer to each other. Aggressive begging, public drunkenness and brawling often occurs after a funeral (Gmelch and Gmelch). Most people assume this is because they have no way to pay for the service or to bury their loved one. Based on my research, I found this to be very plausible. The Roma have arranged marriages known as matching. As a result of matching they have a problem with inbreeding (Gmelch and Gmelch). The Roma have to be careful with their arranged......

...calculation. The correlation coefficient between poverty and URB = CORREL (C2:C59; G2:G59)= -0.0397(4 decimal places), see appendix. The correlation coefficient of -0.0397 means a slightly negative linear relationship between poverty and URB. The t statistics = -0.0397*SQRT ((58-2)/(1-(-0.0397)^2))= -0.297467. If try the significant level of 10% again, the t-crit (0.05, 58-2)= 1.672522, t-stat is still within the critical value. Hence, the null hypothesis for URB cannot be rejected, it is concluded that the URB effect is not statistically different from zero. Using the same calculation method, between poverty and family size, the correlation coefficient = CORREL (D2: D59; G2: G59)= 0.2938, it means that there is a small positive relationship between poverty and FAMSIZE. The t-stat = 0.2938*SQRT ((58-2)/(1-0.2938^2))= 2.300369, which is higher than t-crit, therefore reject the null hypothesis for this variable. Hence, the family size effect is small and statistically not significant. Similarly, the Pearson correlation of UR = CORREL (E2: E59; G2: G59)= 0.2871. Hence, there is a small positive linear correlation between poverty and UR. The t-stat = 0.2871*SQRT ((58-2)/(1-0.2871^2)) =2.242857 which is higher than t-crit, so the null hypothesis can be rejected. It is concluded that UR has small and statistically not significant effect on poverty. Between poverty and income, the correlation coefficient = CORREL (F2: F59; G2: G59)=-0.5873, that represents a strong negative......

Lost in Translation

...Romany Romany, or Romani, is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by about 5-6 million Roma people throughtout Europe and the USA. The largest concetration of Roma people live in Romania. In English these people are often called Gypsies. The language is closely related to the languages of northern India, particularly Punjabi, and the Roma are thought to have originally come from that region. Some people consider Romany to be a group of dialects while others think there are several, closely-related Romany languages. The Muslim invasions of the northern part of the Indian subcontinent around 1000 AD resulted in massive movements of populations, probably including the ancestors of the Roma, who are thought to have moved into Anatolia. In 1300, after the Mongolian invasion of Europe, the Roma moved west into Europe and took up a mainly nomadic lifestyle. Romany alphabet (Romani šib) This is the official standard alphabet for Romany. It was standardized in 1990 at the Fourth World Romani Congress in Serock, Poland. This alphabet is used by all the Romany languages/dialects except Carpathian Romany and Finnish Romany. Romani alphabet Lovari Roma The Lovari are subgroup of the Roma people who speak a dialect of Romani influenced by Hungarian. They live in many parts of Europe, including Hungary, Romania, Poland, France, Germany, Italy and Greece.

Stat Correlation Analysis

... e) Correlation coefficient of 0.003026, which is near zero, suggests that there is very weak (positive) linear relationship between value of investments and household income. Higher income does not necessarily translate into higher value of investments for any given household, and vice versa. Scatter diagram below also demonstrates that there is no strong relationship between these two categories, - y does not increase or decrease as x increases. Excel Functions: =CORREL(D2:D411,G2:G411) f) Correlation coefficient between number of transactions and value of investments is 0.085912, which is near zero. This suggests a very weak linear relationship between the two categories. The number of transactions does not change with the change in value of the investments of subscribers. Scatter diagram illustrates a weak positive relationship, - the number of transactions (y) increases only slightly with the increase in value of investments (x). Excel Functions: =CORREL(D2:D411,E2:E411) g) If two events are independent, the following will hold true: P(female given broadband access)=P(female) P(f)=0.4414 P(female given broadband access)=P(female and broadband access)/P(broadband access)=0.273171/0.62439=0.4375 Because the probability or a subscriber being female is not changed by the existence of subscription to broadband access, we can conclude that gender of a subscriber and broadband access are two events......
