In contrast to histone acetylation, which always correlateswith gene activation, histone methylation can lead toeither transcriptional activation or repression. How do yousuppose that the same modification-methylation-canmediate different biological outcomes?
Considering Lockheed’s past and some of the ethics related issues they (and other defense contractors) experienced in past decades, identify and describe what you consider to be some of the key turning points in the organization that ultimately led to a genuine effort to institute a working ethics program at Lockheed. What were some of the things they did to initiate the company’s ethics program and why do you think so much effort needs to be expended to affect cultural change at a company like Lockheed?
A real estate agent is considering changing her cell phone plan. There are three plans to choose from, all of which involve a monthly service charge of $20. Plan A has a cost of $.45 a minute for daytime calls and $.20 a minute for evening calls. Plan B has a charge of $.55 a minute for daytime calls and $.15 a minute for evening calls. Plan C has a flat rate of $80 with 200 minutes of calls allowed per week and a charge of $.40 per minute beyond that, day or evening.
a. Determine the total charge under each plan for this case: 120 minutes of day calls and 40 minutes of evening calls in a week.
b. Prepare a graph that shows total weekly cost for each plan versus daytime call minutes.
c. If the agent will use the service for daytime calls, over what range of call minutes will each plan be optimal?
d. Suppose that the agent expects both daytime and evening calls. At what point (i.e., percentage of call minutes for daytime calls) would she be indifferent between plans A and B?

- purchasing agents of all kinds have to make difficult decisions. From the case study, determine why you think Bullock Studios arrived at the decision to properly enter the cameras and camera cases.
- Review the Compliance Management Structure found in Chapter 13 and discuss how you would apply it to the Bullock Studios case study.
Assume that ABC Company has invested a budget of 10 million riyals for XY project and planned to complete it in 10 months. Letâs also assume that the company planned to spend the budget equally in each month. However, when the first two months has passed, the project manager has found out that the total of one million riyals spent. Suppose RP=0.25
Based on the above scenario, answer the following:
a) What is the cost variance, schedule variance, cost performance index (CPI), and schedule performance index (SPI) for the project?
b) How much will it actually cost the company to complete this project, and how long will it really take to complete it based on the performance to date?
c) What do you think of the project performance? over/under the budget? behind /ahead the schedule? Justify your answer.
Which parts of this excerpt from Beowulf denote the importance of kinship and lineage?
I have been strand-guard, standing as warden,
Lest enemies ever anywise ravage
Danish dominions with army of war-ships.
More boldly never have warriors ventured
Hither to come; of kinsmen’s approval,
Word-leave of warriors, I ween that ye surely
Nothing have known. Never a greater one
Of earls o’er the earth have I had a sight of
Than is one of your number, a hero in armor;
No low-ranking fellow adorned with his weapons,
But launching them little, unless looks are deceiving,
And striking appearance. Ere ye pass on your journey
As treacherous spies to the land of the Scyldings
And farther fare, I fully must know now
What race ye belong to. Ye far-away dwellers,
Sea-faring sailors, my simple opinion
Hear ye and hearken: haste is most fitting
Plainly to tell me what place ye are come from.”

A relief airplane is delivering a food package to a group of people stranded on a very small island. The island is too small for the plane to land on, and the only way to deliver the package is by dropping it. The airplane flies horizontally with constant speed of 220 at an altitude of 550 . The positive x and y directions are defined in the figure. For all parts, assume that the “island” refers to the point at a distance from the point at which the package is released, as shown in the figure. Ignore the height of this point above sea level. Assume that the acceleration due to gravity is = 9.80 .
An experimenter wants to know if a particular molecule is effective at reducing inflammation. The experimenter treats patients with 10 different types of inflammations. For the 10 conditions the experimenter obtains the following p-values:
p1 = 0:04; p2 = 0:36; p3 = 0:06; p4 = 0:015; p5 = 0:09
p6 = 0:0066; p7 = 0:0055; p8 = 0:02; p9 = 0:12; p10 = 0:008
Based on these p-values, would it be correct for the researcher to claim that
she has significant data to support the effectiveness of the molecule ? If
the answer is no, how would you interpret the result and what would you
suggest to the researcher.
