Many of the firms that reside in the value sector are those that have fallen on hard times, and have underperformed their peers. During his examination of firms meeting various value criteria, Collins has noted that while falling sales and the lack of profits are sometimes the obvious causes of the substandard performance, in other cases sales and profits do not appear to be the root cause. He wonders if the way that these firms have been capitalized is having a negative impact on their values. Collins recalls from his days of studying finance at the University of Queensland, that a Nobel Prize was awarded for one of the theories in the capital structure area. His recollection of the details is sketchy, so he has contacted Dr. Martin Gray from UQ's Department of Commerce to discuss capital structure in theory and in practice.

Miller provides Jenkens with basic company information. Satellite‟s global annual free cash flow to the firm is $700 million, which is expected to level off at a 3.5 percent growth rate and earnings are $550 mil lion. Miller estimates that Satellite‟s after -tax free cash flows to the firm on the Indonesia project for the next four years are $60 million, $64 million, $67.5 million and $70.4 million. The company has just recently announced a dividend of $2.5 per share of stock. To keep the analysis simple, Miller asks Jenkens to ignore any possible exchange rate fluctuations. For the first four years, the Indonesian plant is expected to serve Indonesian customers only.

Before making the final calculations, Atkinson and Ralston discuss net present value analysis for the projects they are considering. Ralston tells Atkinson, "when calculating the net present value of the two new projects, we also need to account for the costs expended as a result of researching the project options." Atkinson makes a note on his legal pad and says to Ralston, "There is no need to make any adjustments for inflation in our estimations of future project cash flows because inflation is included as part of the expected returns used to calculate our weighted average cost of capital." After their conversation, Ralston and Atkinson prepare their report to present to Alias' CEO.

One branch of environmental economics is re- source economics, which applies welfare econom- ics principles to determine optimal use and depletion of resources (Fisher, 1981). The goal is, then, the maximization of the present value of the resource to society. In the case of renewable re- sources this means that the rate of harvesting cannot exceed the rate of regeneration of the resource. In the case of exhaustible resources, it means finding an optimal rate to completely de- plete the resource. The Hotelling rule, developed in 1931, indicates that in the simplest case, with costless extraction, the resource should be ex- tracted in a way that the prices rise at the same rate as the discount rate rises. Critics of this model argue that such approaches implicitly as- sume information about quality and quantity of the resource in question, which is precisely what the models are trying to determine (Norgaard, 1990). Other problems with this model are its absence of concern for future generations’ inter- ests, and the implied conviction that technology and substitution will solve the problems after resources are depleted. The policies derived from this approach recommend better management of nature respecting the environmental linkages; eco- nomic incentives like prices, credit, and exchange rates; and changes in the tenure of land (Pearce and Turner, 1991).

The uniqueness of a quantization procedure is often linked to a symmetry group. A vector field X on a manifold M can be lifted in a natural way to a vector field on T ∗ M , thereby defining an action of the algebra of vector fields on M , Vect(M ), on the space of functions on T ∗ M polynomial in the fibers, called the space of symbols. It turns out that geometric quantization is the unique Vect(M )-equivariant map from the space of symbols of degree less than or equal to one to the space of differential operators on M , up to a normalization. However, geometric quantization cannot be extended to the whole space of symbols if one requires equivariance with respect to the Lie algebra Vect(M), due to cohomological reasons [11]. One can ask whether there exists a Lie subalgebra g ⊂ Vect(M ) for which the quantization map is g-equivariant. This g is supposed to be “big enough” to attain the uniqueness, but “small enough” to acquire the extension of the geometric quantization to the whole space of symbols.

The quest for freedom in Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo and sweet bird of youth.

The quest for freedom in Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo and sweet bird of youth.

Finally, it has also been discussed that the quest for freedom is indeed frightening because of what Amanda Wingfield in Williams’ most famous The Glass Menagerie calls tyranny of time . The characters in the two plays discussed are preoccupied with the quest for youth, but time waits for nobody. Old man like Boss Finley conceals his aging and weakness by having a mistress. Older women like Serafina Delle Rose and Princess Kosmonopolis nurture their illusion of eternal youth by spending as much time as possible with younger men like, respectively, Chance Wayne and Alvaro Mangiacavallo. Meanwhile, the young women in these plays are depicted as being impatient to get the men they fall in love with. It should be noted that women need marriage to survive is the most pervasive theme in American drama of the 20s and 30s (Bonin, 1975: 2) that still echoes in both plays. Whether the playwright intended or not, a pattern emerges: the male characters evade their problems instead of facing the ruthlessness of life or simply makes a quick, practical solution; whereas the female characters tend to hold fast to their romantic Southern beliefs that value family life although they have to live in falsification. These women are unlikely to succeed in their search for freedom, but they

The study comes to the following conclusions. First, based on the structural analysis of each elements, it shows that characters and characterization, setting (setting of place and setting of time), plot (exposition, complication, climax, resolution, causality, and plausibility), point of view, theme style (grammatical structure, sentence construction, diction) are related to each other and form a unity. Second, based on the Existentialist analysis reflected in the character and characterization in being, existence before essence, consciousness (cogito), freedom to choose, anxiety, transcendence ego, and nothingness, quest for the existence of life lead to meaningful purpose in human’s life.

The economic and social indicators calculated for 2005 shows, for Romania case, generally, a positive situation. The indicators are displaying an ascendant tendency compared with anterior periods. The Gross Internal Product was stabilized and it recorded an increase of 4.9% compared with the 2002 level, but it could not influence in a positive way the budget deficit, which continued to float round 2.7% at the end of the year.

only `formally' capitalists. Capitalistic tendencies appear in trade with the ®rst joint stock compa- nies and pursuit of the feudal rate of return. By contrast, the modern mentality aims to maximize Marx's capitalist rate of return, pro®t divided by capital employed in production. In Marx's theory this emerges from the historical interaction of the capitalistic mentalities in agriculture and trade. From the middle of the sixteenth century, landed and mercantile interests pooled their wealth in international trade. Following social con¯ict cul- minating in the `bourgeois revolution' of the mid- seventeenth century when overseas capital gained its freedom from feudal control, the rate of return on capital became the dominant economic ethic. This capital from trade ¯owed back onto the land, bringing with it the capitalistic rate of return mentality. Harnessing this to capitalistic farming produced the modern capitalist mentality. In short, in Marx's theory capitalism resulted from the fusion of the calculative mentality of the capi- talistic farmer, itself derived from the feudal lord seeking the maximum feudal surplus from labour in production, and the calculative mentality of merchant capitalists seeking the maximum feudal rate of return on their capital. In this paper I argue that Marx's theory provides a clear histori- cal chronology and non-determinist explanation of the emergence of capitalism, and that accounts provide objective signatures to test it. Table 1 below summarises the signatures our history of accounting must identify and explain. In Part Two (Bryer, in press-c) I show the available accounting evidence is consistent with Marx's theory. I con- clude it provides a framework for a plausible his- tory of accounting in England from the Middle Ages that we should thoroughly test against the evidence that lies untouched in many archives.

12. B is correct. The operating cycle is equal to the number of days of inventory plus the number of days of receivables. Hence the operating cycle is not impacted by a change in the number of days of payables. The net operating cycle is equal to the operating cycle minus the number of days of payables. If the number of days of payables decreases the net operating cycle will increase.

IT operations folks have visualized data for decades. For instance, employees in network ops centers normally use multiple screens to monitor what’s taking place. Typically of great concern are the statuses of different systems, networks, and pieces of hardware. Record-level data was rolled into summaries, and a simple red or green status would present data in an easily digestible format. This has changed dramatically over the past few years. We have seen a transformation of sorts. Tools like Hadoop allow for the easy and inexpensive collection of vastly more data than even a decade ago. Organizations can now maintain, access, and analyze petabytes of raw data. Next-generation dataviz tools can interpret this raw data on the fly for ad hoc analyses. It’s now easy to call forth thousands of data points on demand for any given area into a simple webpage, spot anomalies, and diagnose operational issues before they turn red. 10

insufficiency. The first is the denial of relevance to a priori data. All the data to study reality are reduced to the data of natural sciences. It must be observable, measurable by the sense, and isolable from one another. Therefore, to discover the sufficient cause of phenomena is enough by merely basing on the senses’ observation. This denial then leads to the second insufficiency namely the false sense of objectivity. The data is the only available object to understand reality. These data are immune to the nature and characters of the observer. The data will speak for themselves. The data must be freed from all personal biases and prejudgment while it is not fully possible. Consequently, the whole reality therefore subject to explanation of these data. The third is that the western paradigm is personalist in its nature. This implies that western paradigm separates the
