As you read in Chapter 11, Facebook is one of many online companies that employ databases. In 2011, Facebook announced that it was adding a new feature—facial recognition. Photos added to a Facebook post or wall are often tagged. When a person is tagged in a photo, the person is identified and a link is created to that user’s Facebook account. To make this job easier, Facebook is using facial recognition software to identify people in the photos. Critics of this say that this is an invasion of privacy. Research the debate online. Write a short paper discussing the implications this could have on a Facebook user’s privacy.

In lab 9, students performed acid-base titrations. redox reactions

In Lab 9, students performed acid-base titrations. Redox reactions can also be used in titrations. An example is the titration of ascorbic acid (H2C6H6O6) in lemon juice using triiodide (I3http://www.webassign.net/images/thinsp.gif). A starch indicator will turn the solution blue-black at the endpoint. The half-reactions involved are shown below.

The Byrds provide over half of the support of their two children, Cynthia (born January 25, 1983, Social Security number 123-45-6788) and John (born February 7, 1987, social Security number 123-45-6786. Both children are full-time students and live with the Byrds except when they are away at college. Cynthia earned $4,200 from a summer internship in 2007, and John earned $3,800 from a part-time job.

During 2007, the Byrds furnished 60% of the total support of Bruce’s widower father, Sam Byrds ( born March 6, 1931, Social Security number 123-45-6787). Sam lived alone and covered the rest of his support with Social Security benefits. Sam died in November, and Bruce, the beneficiary of a policy on Sam’s life, received life insurance proceeds of $800,000 on December 28.
The Byrds had the following expenses relating to their personal residence during 2007:

Property taxes $5,000
Qualified interest on home mortgage 8,800

Doctor bill for Sam incurred in 2006 and not paid until 2007 7,600
Operation for Sam 8,500
Prescription medicines for Sam 900
Hospital expenses for Sam 3,500
Reimbursement from insurance company, received in 2007 3,600


The medical expenses for Sam represent most of the 60% Bruce contributed toward his father’s support.

Other relevant information follows:

• When they filed their 2006 state return in 2007, the Byrds paid additional state income tax of $900.
• During 2007, Alice and Bruce attended a dinner dance sponsored by the Ames police Disability Association ( a qualified charitable organization). The Byrds paid $300 for the tickets. The cost of comparable entertainment would normally be $50.
• The Byrds contributed $5,000 to Ames Presbyterian Church and gave used clothing (cost of $1,200 and fair market value of $350) to the Salvation Army. All donations are supported by receipts and are in very good condition.
• In 2007, the Byrds received interest income of $2,750, which was reported on a Form 1099-INT from Second National Bank.
• Alice’s employer requires that all employees wear uniforms to work. During 2007, Alice spent $450 on new uniforms and $225 on laundry charges.
• Bruce paid $400 for an annual subscription to the Journal of Franchise Management.
• Neither Alice’s nor Bruce’s employer reimburses for employee expenses.
• The Byrds do not keep the receipts for the sales taxes they paid and had no major purchases subject to sales tax.
• Alice and Bruce paid no estimated Federal income tax. Neither Alice nor Bruce wishes to designate $3 to the Presidential Election Campaign Fund.



Part 1 – Tax Computation
Compute net tax payable or refund due for Alice and Bruce Byrd for 2007. If they have overpaid, they want the amount to be refunded to them. If you use tax forms for your computations, you will need Forms 1040, Schedules A, B and Form 2106.

Part 2-Tax Planning
Alice and Bruce are planning some significant changes for 2008.They have provided you with the following information and asked you to project their taxable income and tax liability for 2008.

The Byrds will invest the $800,000 of life insurance proceeds in short term certificates of deposit(CD) and use the interest for living expenses during 2008. They expect to earn total interest of $32,000 on the CDs.

Bruce has been promoted to regional manager, and his salary for 2008 will be $88,000.He estimates that state income tax withheld will increase by $4,000.

Alice, Who has been diagnosed with a serious illness, will take a leave of absence from work during 2008. The estimated cost for her medical treatment is $15,400 of which $4,700 will be reimbursed by their
Insurance company in 2008. Their medical insurance premiums will increase to $5,000.

John will graduate from college in December 2007 and will take a job in New York City in January 2008.His starting salary will be $46,000.

Assume All the information reported in 2007 will be the same in 2008 unless other information has been

presented above.

So I need FORM 1040 ,Sch. A& B and FORM 2106..Please enter all the numbers inside the form Don’t worry about name or ss..etc….I just need the correct AGI, itemized deduction, exemption Taxable income and taxes….etc for part 1 and part 2.
Check figures:
Part 1
AGI 122,850….Taxable income 70,714…..Tax 10,529

Part 2
AGI 122,750….Taxable income 82,756….Tax 13,337

So those numbers are accurate %100

Assignment 3: project paper – comparative essay

Assignment 3: Project Paper  Comparative Essay

This “Assignment 3” writing assignment is a comparative essay focused on topics encountered in our HUM 111 class. The project will be based on research but will reflect your views and interpretation of the topic. This project is designed to help you stretch your mind and your abilities as an organized, innovative, and critical thinker. If approached properly, it should also be fun!

Choose one (1) of the topics from the list of topic choices below. Read the topic carefully. Write a three to four (3-4) page paper (750-1,000 words) that follows instructions and covers each part of the topic. (The title page and References list do not get included in this word count).

For the topic you choose:

1.     Establish a clear thesis about your topic as part of the introductory paragraph (often the thesis is the last thing one determines after doing the basic research and outline; however it will be placed in the first paragraph of your paper).

2.     This is a comparative essay. Comparison approached properly will require some critical thinking on your part. Use a point-by-point approach for the essay. That means, if comparing subject A with subject B, don’t do the first half of the essay on subject A and then the second half on subject B–that will seem like two (2) separate essays and comparisons will tend to get lost. Instead, you should be mentioning both subjects in most of your paragraphs as you compare them throughout the essay. Comparisons will identify similarities as well as contrasts.

3.     Do not try to do everything on your two (2) subjects. You should end up narrowing your focus to a few insights and issues about the subjects being compared. And, from those fairly specific points of comparison, you will develop a thesis and glean some lessons.

4.     Follow closely the instructions below for your specific topic.

5.     Include a concluding paragraph at the end. This paragraph will, in some way, refer back to the thesis established in your first paragraph, since now you have demonstrated and supported it. It may be here that you also include your observations relating your study to the modern workplace or society (see your topic). Try to finish with flair!

6.     Use at least four (4) good quality academic sources, with one (1) source being the class text. Note: Wikipedia and other similar Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

 

Topic Choices  Choose just one (1) of the topics below:

  • Qualities of the Hero: Comparing Gilgamesh and Odysseus. Write an essay comparing these two (2) heroic figures from ancient epics of different cultures, especially focusing your analysis on the sources about their encounters with monsters: Gilgamesh encounters the monster guarding the forest, Humbaba, in Tablets 3-5 of the Epic of Gilgamesh (seehttp://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mesopotamian/gilgamesh/; scroll down to the Tablet links; think of “Tablet” numbers like chapter numbers).” Odysseus encounters Polyphemus the Cyclops in Book 9 of The Odyssey (see http://www.theoi.com/Text/HomerOdyssey9.html; from line 105 to the end). Your paper should:  

a) Compare Gilgamesh and Odysseus as to their heroic qualities, noting similarities and differences, using specific examples from the epics.

b) Summarize what this indicates about differences between ancient Mesopotamian and Greek cultures in their ideals and expectations.

c) From this comparison, suggest ways that current cultural ideals and expectations shape modern notions about role models and heroes.

 

  • Confucius and Aristotle on Virtue. Write an essay comparing these two (2) ancient thinkers on the concept of virtue or good ethical character and conduct. Stay focused on the issue; keep any biographical or other information short or limited. As much as possible, analyze their writings (in translation, of course), using Confucius’ Analects (athttp://classics.mit.edu/Confucius/analects.html ) and Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics (at http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/nicomachaen.html ). Your paper should:

a) Compare the teachings of Confucius and Aristotle on what constitutes virtue or good ethical character and conduct, noting similarities and differences in specific ideas or emphasis.

b) Consider what your findings suggest about differences between ancient Chinese and ancient Greek culture.

c) From this comparison, suggest ideas of virtue that can apply to ethics in a modern setting, such as a diverse workplace.   

 

  • Comparing Sculptures of Ancient India and Greece. Write an essay comparing the way gods and humans were depicted in sculpture in ancient India and Greece, and identify the cultural values and ideals that these art works reflect in each case. Your paper should:      

a) Using specific examples, compare the way gods and people were depicted in the sculptures of ancient India and Greece, noting similarities and differences.

b) Identify the cultural values and ideals that these art works reflect for each society.  

c) From this comparison, suggest a modern situation of artistic expression and the ways it reflects or counters prevailing cultural values.   

 

  • Comparing Ancient Skeptics. Write an essay comparing Lucretius and Wang Chong (=Wang Ch’ung), skeptical philosophers of ancient Rome and China. They were skeptical about popular religious and spiritual beliefs and widely-held superstitions. Lucretius was an Epicurean philosopher of Roman culture (Chapter 6). Wang Ch’ung was a thinker in ancient Chinese culture (Chapter 7). Focus your comparison on their writings as found at http://www.humanistictexts.org/lucretius.htm and http://www.humanistictexts.org/wangchung.htm#On Not Flying to Heaven. Your paper should:

a) Using examples from their writings, compare these two (2) thinkers on their views about specific subjects and on their approach in explaining and expressing their skepticism.

b) From this comparison, identify popular beliefs in each culture that seem similar and those that seem different.

c) From this comparison, suggest any modern situation in which materialist skeptics confront spiritual and religious beliefs, and comment on the considerations of free expression and cultural respect.     

 

  • Comparing Ancient Male Rulers. Take any two (2) of these rulers and write an essay comparing them: Ramses II, Shihuangdi, Constantine, Ashoka, Pericles, or Charlemagne. Select rulers from different cultures. You may also propose (for approval or not) a ruler not listed. Avoid lengthy quoting or lengthy close paraphrasing from biographical sources. Make it YOUR comparative analysis. Your paper should:

a) Compare the two (2) rulers in terms of their situation and methods of rule and their apparent ideals and practices, noting similarities and differences. Use specific examples.

b) Consider what your study suggests about the cultures over which they ruled, identifying any similarities and differences between the cultures.

c) From this comparison, suggest lessons about different types of effective leadership in the world of modern business and / or modern politics.   

 

  • Comparing Ancient Female Rulers. Compare the Tang Empress Wu Zetian (also known as Empress Wu or as Wu Zhao; ruled China around 690-705 AD) with either the Pharaoh Cleopatra (ruled Egypt around 51-31 BC) or the Pharaoh Hatshepsut (ruled Egypt around 1478-1458 BC). You may also propose (for approval or not) a female ruler not listed. Avoid lengthy quoting or lengthy close paraphrasing from biographical sources. Make it YOUR comparative analysis. Your paper should:

a) Compare the two (2) rulers in terms of their situation and ascent to power, their methods of rule, and their achievements and resourcefulness, noting similarities and differences. Use specific examples.

b) Consider what your study suggests about the cultures over which they ruled, identifying any similarities and differences between the cultures.

c) From this comparison, suggest lessons about different types of effective leadership by a female in the world of modern business and / or modern politics.   


The Project Paper will be graded on:

1.     The level to which the instructions were followed for the paper generally and for the specific topic.

2.     The establishment of a clear thesis about your topic.

3.     The adequacy and relevance of information, examples, and details which support the general thesis.

She became a manager at Dazzle Magazine, where she was incharge of the layout. Always open to new ways of doing things, Rosalea let her staff implement their ideas

Finally, Rosalea called one of her topgraduate students with whom she had kept in contact and asked her if she could offer some ideas. The graduatestudent quickly came to the magazine’s office and helped Rosalea decide on the alternative that should beimplemented. Rosalea greatly appreciated the assistance and the suggestion.
