Statistical hypothesis is the numerical value of a population parameter. The chapter defines hypothesis in two different ways, one is the null hypothesis “which represents the status quo to the party performing the sampling experiment. The hypothesis that will be accepted unless the data provide convincing evidence that is false.” Another form of hypothesis that the chapter explains is the alternative or also known as research hypothesis “is that which will be accepted only if the data provide convincing evidence of its truth.” (McClave, Benson, & Sincich, 2011, Chapter 6).
The null and alternative hypotheses are therefore * Null hypothesis (H0): μ ≤ 2,400 * Alternative (research) hypothesis (Ha): μ > 2,400
“The null hypothesis, denoted H0, represents the hypothesis that will be accepted unless the data provide convincing evidence that it is false. This usually represents the “status quo” or some claim about the population parameter that the researcher wants to test.
The alternative (research) hypothesis, denoted Ha, represents the hypothesis that will be accepted only if the data provide convincing evidence of its truth. This usually represents the values of a population parameter for which the researcher wants to gather evidence to support.” (McClave, Benson, & Sincich, 2011, Chapter 6).
Along with discussing the aforementioned topics, we were also given the task of highlighting both the aspects that were most understood and the most problematic issues contained within the comparing the mean of two or more groups. This paragraph of work should serve as a summary of this highlighted part discussed. The reason being was there were several steps that had to be mentioned in order to perform this operation…...

To Live Is the Rarest Thing in the World. Most People Exist-That Is All.

...anything but needed to lead a gratifying and fulfilling livelihood and like I live by the words of Oscar Wilde: “The true perfection of man lies not in what man has, but in what man is.” Living is allowing yourself to be in awe at the sapphire heavens with their silver-lined pillows while the aqua waters glistens their reflections, cherishing Mother Nature’s kaleidoscopic arches after showers that she cleanses us with and relishing in the exquisiteness of the flora and fauna she elaborately clothes us in. It is simply enjoying the beauty that life has to offer. While both words mean a state of being here on earth, they are at completely opposite ends of the life journey spectrum. Existing is the fist while living is the punch. In fact, people don’t live, but they survive each day, for they are too busy, too tired, too stressed and too worried to really indulge in the delectable lip-smacking treats of life. Arising at the break of dawn knowing that your life has a purpose and meaning and having the ability to manifest your dreams into reality and actualizing your full potential is one of life’s greatest achievements. Thus if there is no purpose or meaning for life, then why do we continue to exist?...

People That Changed the World

...People who Changed the World in Politics: Mahatma Gandhi - This guy is at the top of my list. He popularized the non-violent movement. He stopped eating "sugar" only so he could tell a child to give up sugar. He sure lives by the phrase, "be the change you wish to see". Queen Elizabeth I - Queen of one of the most successful monarchs, who defeated the Spanish Armada which laid the foundation for the British Empire. She probably did more to change the perception of what women can do than anyone else on the planet. Augustus Caesar - This guy took the the first "Democratic Republic", the Roman Empire, to the big time (it was already big, partly thanks to his great uncle Julius). However, his focus was building "internal" strength which allowed technologies such as roads and agriculture to flourish. Technologies we still use today. George Washington - First president of the United States, but who knew at the time what kind of country they were building. It went from a fragile country to the "800 pound gorilla" in 200 short years. Nelson Mandela - He was a prisoner in South Africa and became the first black president in South Africa. Who would've thought a person sent wrongfully to prison could be a president. He's one of the most oppressed people who changed the world. Abraham Lincoln - A president who fought to give the country heart. One of the most influential people that helped abolished slavery. Winston Churchill - Outgunned, out manned he persevered against the......

...religion they follow. Many employers of different kinds of businesses came quickly to judging different types of people just because of where they came from and what they looked like. This quickly became a big problem in the discrimination field and was known as prejudice. It resulted in these people who were being discriminated to respond in negative ways. This created negativism in their way of growing and lead to a change in the way they saw their future. Religion has also had a big role in discrimination and has changed the way people judge others. Misjudging people results in many different outcomes and it can have a big affect in the way it makes someone feel towards their future. It stops people from getting to know different cultures and different ways of life. It is unlawful to be prejudiced towards people because of their race, skin color, ethnic background or gender. The title seven of the United States prevents such acts to defend minorities and give them justice to what they deserve. Prejudice and discrimination can have a great impact on the way it changes people who are considered to be in the minority category. There is different ways it changes these people to react into society and towards others. Discrimination can hurt someone to think they are not good enough and it changes the way they see their self and other things in life. Some of these people who are considered to be minorities react in an outward approach. They have TITLE VII: PREJUDICE &......

...hard wired into our boards at birth.”(653). He also goes on to argue that someone can break out of this default way of thinking and achieve a selfless awareness of other peoples lives and experiences. Some argue that you can permanently change your way of thinking so that you become completely aware of other people, and correct your immediate way of thinking. Though some may be able to achieve selflessness, a person cannot entirely escape their natural self-centeredness because that person will always hold some deeper intention for gaining some sort of benefit on a personal level. The default state of mind is something embedded into every person when their born, since they only experience what is immediately around them naturally everyone is selfish. Wallace explains that, “… thinking this way tends to be so easy and automatic it doesn’t have to be a choice. Thinking this way is my natural default setting. It’s the automatic, unconscious way that I experience the boring, frustrating, crowded parts of adult life when I’m operating on the automatic, unconscious belief that I am the center of the world and that my immediate needs and feelings are what should determine the world’s priorities.”(656). Everyone tends to think this way without recognizing because you tend to believe only what you see or hear so the world does revolve around you as far as you are concerned. It is easy to go about life unconsciously performing in this default state of mind because that is what humans......

...routine and soon nothing much is new or exciting, and time is flying by. When we are bored, we become aware of each passing second. Each agonizing moment becomes a salient event because we’re aware of them as they pass, and so time passes in a trickle. Later that day we sink four hours into World of Warcraft without a second thought. 3. To be a new and better person means to have new and better experiences—events that shape who you are, and color your perception. Each new experience can potentially be the event horizon of being “young and dumb.” On one side of the horizon you see your young self, and on this side you find your new, better self. The key ingredient to growth and the perception of a full and meaningful life is those salient events. Don’t sink into routine; seek out new ideas and new people, and new experiences. The last time I clearly remember being young and dumb was a little over a year ago when I separated from my wife. That was a tremendous moment of growth for me, and I can confidently say that I’m a categorically different, better person now. But that gap is getting too long, so I’m getting antsy. It’s time to up the ante, make a rukus, meet new people, go new places, start new projects. You should think about doing the same....

...hi Table 3.3 lists the primary specifications for the Intel family of processors used in IBM and compatible PCs. Table 3.4 lists the Intel-compatible processors from AMD, Cyrix, NexGen, IDT, and Rise. NOTE Note in Table 3.3 that the Pentium Pro processor includes 256KB, 512KB, or 1MB of full-core speed L2 cache in a separate die within the chip. The Pentium II/III processors include 512KB of 1/2 core speed L2 cache on the processor card. The Celeron, Pentium II PE, and Pentium IIIE processors include full-core speed L2 cache integrated directly within the processor die. The Celeron III uses the same die as the Pentium IIIE, however half of the on-die cache is disabled, leaving 128KB functional. The transistor count figures do not include the external (off-die) 256KB, 512KB, 1MB, or 2MB L2 cache built in to the Pentium Pro, Pentium II/III, Xeon, or AMD Athlon CPU packages. The external L2 cache in those processors contains an additional 15.5 (256KB), 31 (512KB), 62 million (1MB), or 124 million (2MB) transistors in separate chips! Note in Table 3.4 that the Athlon includes either 512KB of L2 cache via separate chips, running at either one-half, two-fifths, or one-third the core speed, or 256KB of on-die L2 running at full-core speed, depending on which version you have.

...opportunities are not limited. As well as the many options I have to help me achieve such a great accomplishment. The Value of a College Education Graduation comes and goes for those leaving high school and entering the real world. ... Over the years I have seen the value of an education go up every day. Every day the value of an education goes up. Unlike most purchases, a college education appreciates in value instead of depreciating. It is obvious that higher education is important in a variety of ways. It teaches you to be more intellectual and to push yourself when no one else is there. Most importantly it teaches you to become an individual who doesn't have to rely on their parents for everything. Higher education isn't mandatory if you are planning to live a happy and successful life, it simply prepares you for the workplace and allows you to learn from your mistakes before you are out in the real world. It is becoming harder every day to lead a successful working life without a college degree. This is the main reason why obtaining one is in high importance for me. Accorgin to the united states bureau of labor statistics individuals that attended a university and obtained a least a four year bachelor degree make more money on average than people who have never obtanined a degree. And obtaing a degree is a major goal that I have set for my self,being able to gain self confindence and actually accomplish something is amazing to me.for years I have been so complacent and...

...Many consumers and social advocates believe that businesses should not only make a profit but also consider the social implications of their activities. We define social responsibility as a business’s obligation to maximize its positive impact and minimize its negative impact on society. Although many people use the terms social responsibility and ethics interchangeably, they do not mean the same thing. Business ethics relates to an individual’s or a work group’s decisions that society evaluates as right or wrong, whereas social responsibility is a broader concept that concerns the impact of the entire business’s activities on society. From an ethical perspective, for ex- ample, we may be concerned about a health care organization or practitioner over- charging the provincial government for medical services. From a social responsibility perspective, we might be concerned about the impact that this overcharging will have on the ability of the health care system to provide adequate services for all citizens. The most basic ethical and social responsibility concerns have been codified as laws and regulations that encourage businesses to conform to society’s standards, values, and attitudes. At a minimum, managers are expected to obey these laws and regula- tions. Most legal issues arise as choices that society deems unethical, irresponsible, or otherwise unacceptable. However, all actions deemed unethical by society are not nec- essarily illegal, and both legal and ethical......

Will the Internet Bring People of the World Closer Together?

...the Internet bring people of the world closer together? In today’s World, technology is a very vital entity in the running of our daily life. One of the greatest inventions of the 20th century is the internet. The internet is a world-wide system of computer networks connected together by an internet protocol linking many devices enhancing communication. However, will the internet bring people closer together? The statement has two points of view. Some will agree to it while others will differ. The internet has improved communications through the social media services. This includes Face book, Twitter and Skype. They help in keeping people in touch with their loved ones no matter the country they are in. They also help in finding and making of new friends around the globe. People are able to send pictures and share cultures, hence enabling them to come closer. Furthermore, the internet has led to the development of a global market. The global market helps various investors and business people to be brought closer through advertisements done mostly through the internet. Communication is also done through emails. Today meetings are also being held through Skype. This role of the internet in the global market has brought people from different cultures together. The internet can also spread hatred among people. This has been mainly contributed by social media. In many African countries today, tribalism has been on the rise mainly due to the social media. People use it to......
