Scenario: You are the director of safety and security at a major manufacturing plant. The plant has 1,800 workers and runs three shifts a day. The night shift has about 400 workers on it and runs from midnight to 8 a.m. The security supervisor for the night shift reports to you that there are some unusual activities going on during the night shift involving three of the younger male employees. You decide that you will visit the plant during the night shift to observe this behavior for yourself.
The night you arrive, you realize that you know one of the three young men involved, and he has always been a good worker and a very serious person. You note right away that all three men have an extraordinarily high energy level. They are having a hard time settling down at their assembly points on the line. They are whooping and hollering all the time over the noise of the shop. They are aggressive to the point of pushing other employees around physically. You notice extreme cases of acne and body odor on all three men when you walk by them. Their eyes are glassy and dilated.
At their 3:30 a.m. lunch break, they cross the street to an all-night diner. You notice that they sit with a man wearing a motorcycle jacket with local gang colors. They do not eat, but only have coffee. You see them pay cash to the man with the jacket and he hands one of the three men a small package. When the man with the motorcycle jacket leaves, he mounts a motorcycle and rides off. The three men go to the men’s bathroom in the diner. They are in the bathroom for almost 10 minutes. When they come out, they are boisterous, agitated, and overly animated with their movements.
This assignment focuses on your professional development as a Registered Nurse. Some of you already work in healthcare and have a vision and goal as to where you wish to practice. Others have been exposed to several specialties and are still unsure. Finally, some of you are just happy to finish school and secure employment.
Whatever path you choose, it is essential to understand that nurses are knowledge workers in a demanding and stressful environment. In order to flourish and derive satisfaction from your profession, it is vitally important to develop a network and support system of like-minded colleagues. Joining a professional organization is one way to care for yourself and the profession of nursing. Professional organizations are a perfect setting for networking; allowing nurses to share experiences, provide support, and learn about new opportunities. Additionally, most groups provide continuing education and access to professional periodicals to keep you informed and updated.
There are many kinds of nurse organizations. Since you may be investing some amount of time and money in participating in the organization’s activities, choosing the right one is important. for you. In general, professional nursing organizations fall into three categories:

1. What did you think of the video? Did it help you retain the information discussed in Chapter 4?
2. How does watching a documentary compare to just reading the textbook?
3. What are three specific things Professor Miller talked about that you thought was interesting about this time in American history? Did your book describe it in the same way (or discuss it at all)? I will be looking for details here.
4. This documentary is a secondary source. What do you think would be a good primary source discussed in the chapter that you could read to personalize the chapter even more? Please identify the source and include the page number you found it on.

Answer the questions
below based on the Price Response Survey of Resume Magic book.
guidance, see pages 51-54 of Dolan and Simon

and Regression Review Notes
van Westedorp what is the optimal book
price based on the data collected? What
are the learnings about possible prices from this method? Plot the data to
support your results.
Use a simple linear regression to estimate the
demand curve Q = a – bP, whereby a is the (constant) estimated intercept term
and b is the price coefficient of the independent variable (price per
unit). Interpret the main statistical
results and diagnostics. What is the
meaning of ‘b’ and is it statistically significant?
You may assume that the AVC (unit variable costs)
associated with the production and distribution of each book are $5/unit. Find
the ‘inverse demand curve’ where P is defined
as a function of Q. Use the estimated
demand function to calculate the profit
maximizing price and quantity.
Are there missing variables that would be useful to include in order to estimate the demand function more accurately.
