are not used as a source of minerals to sustain the mammary supply during lactation. In other words, an osteoporotic skeleton is not an obligatory consequence of lactation in this species at least. Considerable difficulties exist in the determination of these requirements by the metabolic balance technique, since this method does not indicate when mobilization of minerals from the spongiosa is accompanied by mobilization from the shaft. Further, the balance over a whole lactation is often small in relation to the total quantities of materials analyzed and may be close to the analytical errors of the methods when the diet given is rich in minerals. The present observations may find some application in the determination of certain mineral requirements of lactation. Because the losses of Ca and P are unavoidable, involving the gradual liberation of reserves laid down at an earlier peripd, it has been difficult to estimate the requirements for lactation on the bafsis ofthe negative values obtained by the balance technique. Since the present study shows that, in the rat, it is possible to restrict the withdrawal of bone salt to the spongiosa, leaving the shaft unaffected, it seems reasonable to suggest that lactation requirements could be defined as those intakes which, for a given output of minerals in milk, will restrict the withdrawals to the spongiosa. Thus, using a similar technique, the problem ofthe mineral requirements for lactation in domestic aniimals might become more amenable to experimental attack. This preservation of the diaphyses may be an unattainable ideal in the high-producing

John Q

...disbelief. Despite its far-fetched premise and often clumsy execution, John Q is creditable for its attempt to illustrate the inequities and failings of the American healthcare system. It makes its points in dramatic if overwrought fashion. The political message is integral but not at the service of the action that is sustained throughout along with a tension that increases with the deteriorating condition of John Q's son Mike (Daniel E. Smith). The exuberant Mike is the center of the Archibald family. John and his wife Denise (Kimberly Elise) are devastated when the apparently healthy boy collapses during a Little League baseball game. Tests reveal he has an enlarged heart that needs replacing. The Archibald's problems mount when John discovers his health insurance policy does not cover the expensive procedure. The hospital's ruthless administrator, Rebecca Payne (Anne Heche), threatens to send the dying Mike home unless his parents can come up with the down payment of $75,000 required for his name to be put on the recipient list for prospective donors. When the normally law abiding, peaceful John is unable to raise the money, he becomes desperate. The harsh economics of American healthcare afford little room for sentiment. That a so-called civilised society could condemn someone to death simply because they can't afford adequate insurance is unfathomable, but a reality. That is why when John Q, who chooses to be known by the initial of his middle name Quincy,......

The Q Theory of Investmen

...edu.cn The Q theory of investment, the capital asset pricing model, and asset valuation: a synthesis MCDONALD John F. (College of Business Administration, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, USA) E-mail: mcdonald@uic.edu Received Feb. 23, 2004; revision accepted Mar. 6, 2004 Abstract: The paper combines Tobin’s Q theory of real investment with the capital asset pricing model to produce a new and relatively simple procedure for the valuation of real assets using the income approach. Applications of the new method are provided. Key words: Investment theory, Asset pricing, Appraisal Document code: A CLC number: F832.48 INTRODUCTION This paper combines the economic theory of real investment and the standard financial model of asset pricing to produce a method for the valuation of real assets; and intentionally uses relatively simple versions of these two theories to link economics, finance, and appraisal. Numerical examples using data on real estate assets illustrate the valuation method. The Q theory of investment, introduced by James Tobin (1969), is popularly accepted theory of real investment hypothesized to be a positive function of Q, defined as the ratio of the market value to the replacement cost of capital. Standard presentation of the theory, such as that of Romer (1996), shows that Q is the value to the firm of an additional unit of capital, which is the discounted value of its future marginal revenue products. Extensions of the Q theory of......

Company Q

...Company Q’s recent decisions that directly affect areas of social responsibility appear to indicate that their upper management has instituted policies that are in direct opposition to what a customer-centric company would want. Their Decision to finally carry more healthy and/or organic products is one that should have been made years ago even without the continuing requests of their loyal customers. As a responsible corporate citizen they should try to offer products that will promote the health, happiness and wellbeing of their customers. The fact that their customers have been requesting these products for years only makes this ethical lapse worse. While Company Q shows they can take a step in the right direction by adding health conscious products to their inventory, their choice of products shows they are doing it for the wrong reasons. Rather than pick items that promote healthy living and are reasonably priced so as to be within the budget of most households, they have systematically chosen products with the highest margins that will net them the most profits. This decision implies that their motives are not to help their customers live happier, healthier lives but instead to cash in on their desires to provide better overall life quality for their children and other family members. How is it that a corporation whose continued existence is dependent on repeat business can’t see that having healthy customers who live longer will only increase their total......

...”Barbie-Q” At first the short story seems very unusual. The way the narrator describes each Barbie doll in such detail that makes you almost see them before you. But it’s not only the Barbie dolls. Even the flea market is described in a way that makes the pictures come alive before your eyes. But the unusual part is the role the Barbie dolls play. What is so special about these dolls, and what is their role? These are the questions that go through my mind. And my head tells me that there lies something bigger behind the story about these simple dolls. As I read the short story again I can focus a bit more on what is actually happening. It tells the story about two little girls who don’t care how much their toy costs, if it’s a little damaged, or if maybe a piece or two are missing. They just want to play, and that doesn’t require perfect dolls. All they need is a healthy friendship and a well-equipped imagination. Perfection and materialism isn’t everything, and maybe this is what the story is all about. The narrator, a little girl, who with the help of flawed Barbie dolls, accepts that things aren’t perfect, but that perfection isn’t everything, and thereby rejects the quest for perfection defined by society. Instead she speaks of a society, where flaws are a natural thing that shouldn’t matter a great deal. As she speaks of all these flaws, it’s unclear to us if she alludes to flaws of her own, but nevertheless she accepts them, which is something even some adults have...

Q Analysis

...Deer Valley Lodge, a ski resort in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, has plans to eventually add five new chairlifts. Suppose that one lift costs $2 million, and preparing the slope and installing the lift costs another $1.3 million. The lift will allow 300 additional skiers on the slopes, but there are only 40 days a year when the extra capacity will be needed. (Assume that Deer park will sell all 300 lift tickets on those 40 days.) Running the new lift will cost $500 a day for the entire 200 days the lodge is open. Assume that the lift tickets at Deer Valley cost $55 a day. The new lift has an economic life of 20 years. Assume that the before-tax required rate of return for Deer Valley is 14%. Compute the before-tax NPV of the new lift and advise the managers of Deer Valley about whether adding the lift will be a profitable investment. Show calculations to support your answer.

John Q

...John Q. Crystal Beere HCS/235 March 16, 2015 Steve Linerode John Q. John is like many people in the country that have a low income job. He is working a full time job but still doesn’t make enough to afford insurance on his own so he has Medicaid. This limits his options on coverage and who he can go to. He has a condition that needs medical attention, high blood pressure, but because of his insurance he is finding it hard to get the care he needs. Many people have that problem but there are solutions to get the care you need. John lives in a rural area that doesn’t have any primary care doctors that take his insurance. He was able to find two doctors in his area but not a primary care physician. The closest primary care physician he found is forty minutes away from his home. This is a challenge for him because he catches a ride to work or relies on public transportation. These problems are mutable, which means they can change. He could move to a different place, closer to the doctor he needs to see. Although with his low income job he might not be able to afford a place closer to the doctor he needs to see. He could also invest in getting a car. The cheapest option for him would to be get a car so he doesn’t have to rely on others to take him and possibly miss an appointment. He could still catch a ride with a friend or use public transportation if he wants to save on gas so he has it to get to his......

John Q

...A Look at John Q HCS/235 History of Health Care Utilization in the US November 20, 2013 Brett Robinson A look at John Q Too poor to afford private health care insurance coverage, but lucky enough to qualify for Medicaid John Q faces yet another challenge. John’s father recently suffered a heart attack which brought into question his own mortality. John like many Americans is a working class man who works full time but still under the poverty level and into a substandard and overworked Medicaid system. He like many others has high blood pressure and with his father recent heart attack he would like to be checked out. Due to John’s low income he qualifies for Medicaid coverage, but also has work within his restraints. John lives in a rural community where there are local doctors however none accept Medicaid. The closest primary care physician who takes his insurance is a forty minute drive away. John also is without a car, he relies on a friend or public transportation. There are many mutable and un-mutable factors in this case. John could get a better job, which could result in better insurance coverage. “The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services states that one-quarter of America’s population lives in rural areas”(Jones, 2013). John Q lives in a rural area where his son has heart condition and is in need of a heart transplant and the closest primary care physicians is 40 miles away. John usually gets a ride to work from a friend or relies on public......

Prescription/Oxymoron by Schoolboy Q Analysis Paper

...Prescription / Oxymoron by Schoolboy Q The song I’m choosing to dissect is Prescription / Oxymoron by Schoolboy Q. This song contains a lot of deeper meanings and his lyrics express his struggle with his prescription drug addiction. Initially, Schoolboy Q was just trying to sell drugs in order to support his daughter and give her the best chance at life that he could. The first line in this song, “Prescription drugs, show me love” is intended to show that Schoolboy Q was turning to selling drugs in order to make a better life and provide for his family, however, the stress of selling the drugs eventually got to be too much for him and he mixed business with pleasure and got addicted to them in order to try to numb his own mental and physical handicaps. The song doesn’t narrate that substances are being used in the song but he does note how he’s felt while using and on the drugs. The lyrics that portray this best is “my chin press on my chest, my knees press the floor, I’m blanking out, woke up on the couch, dinner on my shirt, my stomach hurts”. The drugs are physically harming his well being and making him sick all over from the pains in his chest to the fact that he can’t even stand up and is on his knees trying to get a grasp on reality. Multiple slang terms are thrown in throughout the songs. Q refers to “Xannies” and needing “wood for the trees” which is slang for the wrappers that are used to roll blunts to smoke weed with. Q really doesn’t seem to leave any......

Company Q

...Company Q has a reputation to secure in the community. Company Q is hoping to not only keep their current clientele but also build more of it. By donating day old food the store is able not only save on publicity costs, but use the tax benefits for food donation to help with cost. To keep and build clientele the company needs to get their name out in the public eye. To do so Company Q also needs to build their reputation as a company that cares. If a business seems empathetic to the public’s needs more people will support and recommend using Company Q’s services. It gives a consumer the feeling of helpfulness and of giving back. The consumer feels good about supporting a store that cares about the local community. Radio, television, and online and print advertisements all serve to draw customers to supermarkets. Advertising among the top four supermarket chains (Kroger Co., Albertson’s Inc., Safeway Inc. and Publix Super Markets, Inc.) ran combined annual totals of $1.9 billion in the early part of the 21st century (http://www.msgcpa.com/files/Grocery.pdf). When donating food to a local food bank companies are able to save money on those costs. The food banks often times maintain public campaigns and benefit celebrations that advertise sponsors of not only money but also goods. With the food banks doing the advertising of the company’s generosity Company Q is able to project a positive community image and save on advertising costs. When it comes to allowable......

The movie that I have chosen to critique is called John Q. This movie was released in Feburary2002 (IMDB, 1990-2012) and has a little bit of everything in it: drama, suspense, and a lot of emotion. The main actor in this movie is Denzel Washington. In the movie, “written in 1993 during the Clinton health-care-reform battle (Kluger and Bjerklie (2002)” as a nation were struggling with everything, especially health care. Denzel portrays a dad that cannot afford a heart transplant for his son and under all of the stress he snapped. In order to get what he wanted he took all of the people in the emergency room hostage.
