Case Study #1
1. The social structure and behavior of chimps in their communities or troops suggest many questions. What research questions might Dr. Hahn and her associates ask?
Research questions Dr. Hahn and her associates may ask would include things about how the chimp’s interact and communicate, about their diet affecting behavior and if different groups do things differently?
2. Choose one of the research questions from above and consider it in more detail. Based upon the question, what would be a reasonable hypothesis?
Does their diet affect the behavior of the chimps?
Diets will not always be the same between other groups, which also means behaviors wouldn’t be the same either. Hypothesis: If chimps have different diets, they will have different behaviors
3. Based upon this hypothesis, what types of data might the scientists collect and for what reasons? How would these data allow Dr. Hahn to test the proposed hypothesis?
Data scientists should collect based on this hypothesis would include collecting feces and testing for nutrients and stress hormones. High stress chimps should show high levels of stress hormones in their feces. Low stress chimps should show low levels of stress hormones in their feces.
4. Dr. Hahn and her associates are speciﬁc ally collecting fecal pellets. Why do you think Dr. Hahn is interested in the contents of fecal pellets? Generate a list of the possible “contents” of fecal matter.
Nutrients from earlier consumption of food will shown in feces, giving evidence of their lifestyle Feces show traces of DNA or RNA
25% of the feces is solid matter, 30% of this solid matter is dead bacteria
5. How might the social structure of the chimpanzee community inﬂuence what is contained in the fecal matter? How might chimp social interactions inﬂuence what is contained in the fecal pellets or how they are distributed on the forest ﬂoor?

The following cost items are needed before a schedule of cost of goods manufactured can be prepared:
Materials used in production:
Prime Costs $545,000.00
Less Direct Labor Cost $220,000.00
Direct Materials Cost $325,000.00
Manufacturing Overhead Cost:
Direct Labor Cost/ Percentage of Conversion Cost:
rounded to nearest dollar ( this is total conversion cost)
100%-65% = 35%
Conversion Cost $628,571.00
Less Direct Labor Cost $220,000.00
Manufacturing Overhead $408,571.00
Cost of Goods Manufactured:
Cost of Goods Available for Sale $1,020,000.00
Less: finished goods inventory, beginning $35,000.00
Cost of Goods Manufactured $985,000.00
The easiest way to proceed from this point is to place all of the amounts that are known in a partially
completed schedule of cost of goods manufactured and a partially completed income statement. Then
fill in the missing amounts by analyzing the available data.
Raw Materials Inventory, beginning $41,000.00
Add: Purchases of Raw Materials $325,000.00
Raw Materials Available for use $366,000.00...
Over the past three years I have been building a branding and developing
agency. The goal of my company is to help those who want to achieve a certain level of
success in fashion and entertainment. I started this company with one singer, who is
now signed to sony records. When beginning the journey of executed one’s dream
many times we are side tracked as was I. Over the years I have been able to build my
company, though it is still in the growth process I am working on perfecting my agency

thru to make my service both innovative, and yet similar.
The second I walked into my first public relations class at St. John’s University I
knew what I wanted to do, and what I wanted to create for myself. Did I know how to
do it? Not really, did I know where to start? Absolutely not, did I even know who my
customer was? The answer is no to any questions that would make sense for any young
entrepreneur. In all fairness I was 19, and overwhelmed with excitement. Thru the
years of interning for fortune 500 companies, and working at them after graduation I
decided it was time to play with NYC, and see...

In this casestudy we will examine family, social, and intimate relationships. Identify any role changes that may have occurred, and immediate and future effects of healthy and unhealthy habits demonstrated in this casestudy.

This case shows a daily working life of Rachel, the project manager of large information systems project; the case mainly discussed the way a project manager allocates her time to spent one day in her life.

...Aline DeNeuve CaseStudy1
Aline DeNeuve was assigned to organize a company retreat for the Montreal branch after the one she set up for the Calgary branch was a big success. Aline is shocked that most of the employees have low morale and not interested in a retreat after the first one was a big success. Since she was promoted as the new director of training and development at Consolidated Inc. she must find out why the morale and interest level of the employees is so low and how previous management could have let this happen.
Heather, the first employee she interviewed who is an administrative assistant, did not like the supervisor because of his dislike of foreigners. This might be the case because Heather wasn’t given a job promotion so she blames it on his dislike of foreigners. This can be to blame because of her confirmation bias therefore Heather is screening out the fact that the decision was made that Heather was Chinese, not that it is the best choice for the company. Due to this, Heather has taken a lot of days off and the supervisor views this as not caring about the company. Heather also told Aline that a retreat wouldn’t make the company closer and wouldn’t be better for the companies anti sociality. Cosolidated Inc. uses a no tolerance approach on its employees and this prevents its employees from getting close.
