Exam Questions 1. Globalization

Imagination is more important than knowledge (Albert Einstein)

We need to think more seriously than ever about how we encourage people to focus on productive outcomes that advance and unite civilization-peaceful imaginations that seek to “minimize alienation and celebrate interdependence rather than self sufficiency, inclusion rather than exclusion,” openness, opportunity, and hope rather than limitation, suspicion, and grievance.

Discuss how a global business could harness these ideas to create a better world for all countries especially the countries that do not benefit from globalization.

2. Excellence

The platform for Peters and Waterman onto which the In Search Of Excellence research and

theorising was built, was the McKinsey 7-S model:

  • Strategy

  • Structure

  • Systems

  • Style of management

  • Skills - corporate strengths

  • Staff

  • Shared values

    Discuss the 7-S model in relation to a company of your choice. The company can be from anywhere in the world. In your answer you will need to discuss the seven steps to success and how organisations achieve success in today’s market place

  1. Security

  2. Theworldisflat

    Stanley Fischer, the former deputy managing director of the IMF, once remarked to me. “One good example is worth a thousand theories.” I believe that is true. Indeed, people do not change only when they must: They also change when they see that others-like themselves-have changed and flourished. Discuss the above quote in relation to the rise of the middle-class in China and India.

 

Do you consider hacktivism to be civil disobedience or a cyber crime? Justify your answer with evidence.

5. Counterfeitgoods

  1. Watch the video clip http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2014/s4103157.htm

  2. Discuss the impact of counterfeit goods in the context of conducting profitable,

    sustainable global business enterprises such as Gucci, Pfizer, Rolex or LVMH.

  3. Discuss how counterfeit goods fund terrorism and what can be done to eradicate

    this funding.

6. Disruptiveinnovation–TheInternetofthings

“Pill-shaped microcameras already traverse the human digestive tract and send back

thousands of images to pinpoint sources of illness. Precision farming equipment with wireless links to data collected from remote satellites and ground sensors can take into account crop conditions and adjust the way each individual part of a field is farmed—for instance, by spreading extra fertilizer on areas that need more nutrients. Billboards in Japan peer back at passersby, assessing how they fit consumer profiles, and instantly change displayed messages based on those assessments.” (McKinsey&Company 2010)

Business models based on today’s largely static information architectures face challenges as new ways of creating value arise. In this context (the Internet of things) choose an industry and a specific technology and discuss the impact this change will have in the next five years. Analyse the business value and sustainability.

Essay 2-Rhetoric of Text (@4-6 Pages)

For this essay, you are required to use V for Vendetta and our supplementary texts as idea generators for argumentative topics. 

 

What does this mean? In particular, you should find a theme from within the text and write an essay that argues something about the theme and it uses V for Vendetta as evidence of this theme.

 

 

When mining V for Vendetta for themes to explore, there are many topics to consider, including:

Government Control

 

Manuscript Notes: This essay should be four to six double-spaced pages and calls for MLA documentation; you must include a “Works Cited” list at the end of your essay. When you quote key phrases or clauses from your written text(s), you must provide parenthetical documentation.

Best, 

Kareem

only 8 questions and I have done them partially right. 

 

 

Need help on college general chemistry and quick!! Will give a good rating if done well.

 

Answer all questions in the space provided.  Number each question in your response.  Answer each question in no more than 100 words (words exceeding this limit will not be considered in grading).  One or more of the following questions will be graded.

1.  Consider an aqueous solution that is saturated with nitrogen gas and sugar (glucose) at 80 °C. You may recall from lecture that as for most non-ionic solutes, Ks for glucose increases with increasing temperature.  For N2, as for most gases, KH decreases with increasing temperature.  Predict what happens when:

A.  More sugar is added to the solution at 80 °C.

B.  The solution at 80 °C is heated to 95 °C.

C.  The solution is cooled to room temperature.

2.  Using the Kspdata below, predict the products for the following reaction:

Ca2+(aq) +  NO3-(aq) +  K+(aq) +  F-(aq) -> ???

Ksp Ca(NO3)2 = 1.6 x 10-3                      Ksp CaF2 = 3.5 x 10-11

Ksp KNO3 = 1.3 x 106                          Ksp KF = 8.7 x 105

3. You are provided with an aqueous solution containing 0.050 M Mg2+ and 0.050 M Cu2+ ions and are asked to try to separate them. What concentration of OH- is needed to begin precipitation of each cation? Ksp = 1.8 x 10-11 for Mg(OH)2; Ksp = 4.8 x 10-20 for Cu(OH)2

4. Calculate how many mL of a 0.1 M NaOH solution was added to a titration mixture of 100 mL of 0.1 M HCOOH (pKa = 3.75) solution to reach a final pH of 5.1.

5. 50 mL of 0.03 M HCl solution was added to 100 mL of 0.10 M acetic acid solution (CH3COOH, Ka = 1.8 x 10-5). What is the pH of the mixture?

6. Consider again the previous problem: What fraction of the acetic acid is dissociated before and after the addition of the HCl solution?

7. Consider a solution of ammonia, NH3. An equal volume of an ammonium chloride solution of the same concentration was added to the ammonia solution. How will this affect the pH of the ammonia solution? Explain your answer.

8. You have 1.0 L of a formic acid buffer that is 0.10 M in HCOOH and 0.050 M in HCOONa. The following substances were added to this buffer in three separate experiments: 1) 0.05 mol of HCl, 2) 0.05 mol of NaOH, 3) 0.05 mol of HCOONa. Which of the resulting solution(s) no longer function(s) as a buffer? Explain your answer.

9. What is the solubility of PbI2(s) in a solution saturated with another sparingly soluble iodide salt relative to PbI2(s) solubility in pure water? Explain your answer.

10. Consider a solution of CaCl2 and Mg(NO3)2 in which the concentrations of both Mg2+ and Ca2+ are the same, 0.01. M.  Is it possible to separate Ca2+ from Mg2+ by selective precipitation of Mg(OH)2? To be precise, is it possible to precipitate 99.99% of magnesium without precipitating any calcium as hydroxides? For the sake of simplicity, assume that the precipitation reactions do not result in any change of the volume of the reaction mixture. The Ksp values of the calcium and magnesium hydroxides are 6.5 x 10-5 and 7.1 x 10-12, respectively. Show your work.

One Case Analysis from any of the aproved Cases shown. Max two pages.
