    large aviation manufacturing business, accounting homework help

    Tom was hired as a budget analyst at a large aviation manufacturing business. His boss has asked that he review last year’s master budget, actual results, and planned numbers, and calculate the variances for each category. The data table Tom was given follows below and the assignment is at the end of the data table.

    Actual Results


    Static Budget

    Units Sold






    Total Variable Costs



    Contribution Margin



    Fixed Costs



    Operating Income



    For this assignment:

    • Create a table that shows the variances for each category and for overall.
    • Then, in a 1-page Word document, summarize why there were variances.
    • Include both the calculation table and summary in the same document.

    Please make this 1-2 pages as you will have to make the table and include a 1 page paper in APA format.

    Please include a reference page and site sources within the paper.

    First Paper

    Select a terrorist organization likely to conduct an attack within the United States, and complete an in-depth profile on the organization you selected for this first part of a three part series of papers. The same group you select will be used for your Midterm, Progress, and Final paper.

    The organization I am choosing for this assignment is Hezbollah.

    For this midterm, complete an in-depth profile on the organization selected for your project. In 5-7 pages (double-spaced,) provide a narrative explaining the organization’s origins, ideology, goals & objectives. Include a discussion on the leadership, funding, and capabilities such as physical bases or operating/support location(s), personnel strengths, training programs, and communications methods. Lastly, it would be helpful to provide a description of known and suspected weapons/lethal agents and delivery methods, procedures used in prior attacks, propaganda, surveillance methods, and significant events/dates that may be used in attack planning.

    This Midterm Paper (the organizational profile) is due Sunday of Week 3. The profile must follow APA guidelines (parenthetical citation formats only; not end notes or footnotes) and be free of typographical, spelling and grammatical errors. The minimum requirement is five full pages of content (not counting title page and reference page). The SSGS Assignment Rubric for 300-400 Level Classes will be used to evaluate this assignment. Assignment Rubric

    Note on the three paper assignment series: The first paper (the midterm) is about the group you select and basically provides a historical perspective about the group.

    Make sure you read the instructions carefully and that you focus your paper on answering the assigned questions. This assignment is a research paper, not an opinion paper, so you need to use the class readings to support your thesis. Make sure you use APA style in-text parenthetical citations at the end of every sentence where you are quoting or paraphrasing another’s ideas (or any information) that is not your own thoughts and words, like this (Bergen, 2015, para 14). I highly recommend you use the APUS writing guide based on the APA style which can be found in the university library or at this link: APUS Style Guide for APA. You are welcome to use supplementary sources to compliment the assigned readings based upon your research, but make sure you use scholarly and credible sources. See the APUS Library Homeland Security Program Guide for good sources, as well as the APUS Research Primer and the APUS Library Research FAQs. For formatting, the best option is to use the attached example paper as a template (for formatting purposes only).


    Five-seven (5-7) pages of text, not including the Title or Reference pages;

    Written according to the APA style and format;

    Use Times New Roman 12 point font;

    1 inch margins on all sides

    Double space all text (no extra lines or spaces after a paragraph or section headings)

    A respectable number of credible resources used, cited in the paper as in-text citations, and included on the reference page. A good rule of thumb is at least 2-3 scholarly sources per page of content.

    Discuss the impact that the Medicaid cuts will have on Krona’s revenue, management homework help

    Your company’s chief financial officer (CFO) begins the preliminary work of developing the organization’s financial plan for the upcoming year. Recently, there have been media reports that your state will be cutting health care costs by reducing benefits, paying health care providers or organizations less, and tightening eligibility. Specifically, the state’s Medicaid budget will be reduced by 6 percent and fees to health providers will be reduced by 3 percent.

    Revenue from Medicaid constitutes 30 percent of Krona’s annual revenue. The annual revenue for Krona last year was $20,000,000 and was expected to increase 10 percent the following year. The chief executive officer (CEO) has asked that you provide a brief summary of capitation to share with the board.

    Compose a memo to the CEO that includes the following:

    • Discuss the impact that the Medicaid cuts will have on Krona’s revenue.
    • Address the possible issues surrounding next year’s forecasting.
    • Provide an explanation of capitation.
    • Discuss the challenges, benefits, and risks in utilizing capitation.

    Provide references.

    Internal Controls Discussion


    Discussion #1

    “Internal Controls”

    Please respond to the following:

    • Imagine that a coworker wants to circumvent an internal control to steal money from your company. Speculate on two (2) internal controls that your coworker might attempt to circumvent in order to steal the money. Recommend two (2) actions that the company could take in order to prevent the theft.
    • Outline an anti-fraud program that you would implement at your company (current or previous). Suggest the approach you would take to sell this program to your senior executives. Provide a rationale for your response.

    Discussion #2

    “Accounts Receivable Management”

    Please respond to the following:

    • Examine the five (5) steps to managing accounts receivable. Speculate on the step that is most vulnerable to fraud. Suggest at least two (2) actions that a company can take in order to protect this step from fraud.
    • Imagine that your company has tasked you with developing a plan for factoring accounts receivables. Create one (1) scenario that demonstrates the key benefits and / or detriments to your company from factoring accounts receivable.

    Discussion #3

    “Plant Assets”

    Please respond to the following:

    • Imagine that you are the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of a startup airline company. The executive management team has tasked you with making a recommendation about whether the company should buy or lease airplanes. Analyze the major pros and cons for leasing and buying assets. Based on your analysis, provide a recommendation to the executive team.
    • Compare and contrast the three (3) methods for depreciating plant assets. Recommend the method that maximizes profits for both a shorter period of time and a longer period of time.

    BUS 520

    Discussion #1

    Motivation Methods

    Examine the significant similarities and differences of goal-setting theory, self-efficacy, and reinforcement.

    • Which theory do you believe most closely aligns with your current or future approach to motivating employees?
    • Provide at least one example that demonstrates your approach to employee motivation.

    Note: Use information from your readings (Chapters 5 and 6) and/or other outside research to support your responses.

    This week, the question to ponder upon addresses two specific issues:

    • First, explain which theory (goal-setting theory, self-efficacy, and reinforcement) you believe most closely aligns with your current or future approach to motivating employees.
    • Second, least one example that demonstrates your approach to employee motivation.
    • A discussion at the beginning of this lesson about the challenges facing organizations to keep their employees interested and engaged can help address the issue raised by the question of this discussion forum. About two-thirds of U.S. workers agree that they are not fully engaged in their work. Similar problems exist in other countries like Germany where just 15 percent of workers report being engaged in their work. Some organizations are responding to the problem by looking for creative ways to engage their employees. Nearly half of employees blame their supervisor for the situation, claiming that they don’t remove obstacles that get in the way of performing well. Some workers also say that their supervisors fail to include them in discussions that directly affect them.
    • Class: Can you share with us a situation where an employee (or you) lost enthusiasm about the company, and therefore became less motivated.

    Discussion #2

    “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”

    Recall what you learned this week about the five stages of group development and team performance. With that in mind, respond to the following:

    • Describe one workplace scenario in which understanding of these five stages could have helped you work more effectively with a team. Provide a rationale for your response.
    • Reflect on your teamwork experience and share the good, bad, and tolerable characteristics of being a team member.

    Note: Use information from your readings (Chapters 7, 8, and The Forgotten Group Member Case) and/or other outside research to support your responses.

    This week’s question addresses two issues:

    • First, suggest at least one (1) scenario in which understanding the Five Stages of Group Development could help you to work more effectively with a team.
    • Second, reflect on an experience that you had being a member of a team and classify the good, bad, and tolerable characteristics of being a team member.
    • When addressing the issues raised by this week’s discussion, keep in mind that having a supportive organizational setting within which to work, can be a strong launching pad for team success. By contrast, team performance can suffer when resources such as information, budgets, work space, deadlines, rules and procedures, technologies, and the like, are insufficient to accomplish the task. For instance, In a survey of MBA students, 56 percent admitted to cheating by plagiarizing, downloading essays from the Web, and more. Some students justify their cheating by saying, “everyone does it.”
    • Class: How would you respond in a work situation in which you are told an unethical action is the norm for the industry or business?

    Discussion #3

    “Would You Make the Same Decision?

    Watch this video: Making Decisions


    Include these items in your response:

    • Provide an example of a time when you made a decision regarding a work issue when procedures were not in place.
    • Explain the steps you took to address the issue. What could you have done differently, and why?

    Note: Use information from your readings (Chapters 9 and 10) and/or other outside research to support your response.

    • First, provide an example of a decisions you made in your current or past organization when procedures were not in place.
    • Second, explain the significant ways to address the problem, and tell us what you could have done differently.
    • When addressing the issue raised by this question, make certain you understand the concept of rational model of decision making. It is noteworthy that the optimizing decision maker is rational as consistent and value-maximizing choices within specified constraints are made. Our textbook notes that the Rational Model includes six steps: define the problem, identify the decision criteria, allocate weights to the criteria, develop the alternatives, evaluate the alternatives, and select the best alternative.
    • Class: Describe an important decision you took and the outcome turned out to be what you least expected and identify the perceptions that you made to explain your failure.

    ECO 550

    Discussion #1

    “Production Economics and Decisions”

    Please respond to the following:

    • From the scenario for Katrina’s Candies, determine the relevant costs for the expansion decision, and distinguish between the short run and the long run costs. Recommend the key decision-making criteria that Katrina’s Candies should use for expansion decisions in the short run and in the long run. Determine under what conditions, a company should or should not continue to produce the good or service.



    Discussion #2

    “Market Structures and Cost Management”

    Please respond to the following:

    • From the scenario for Katrina’s Candies, determine the appropriate type of market structure for the situation in question. Cite at least four (4) defining characteristics that have helped you reach this decision regarding the appropriateness of the chosen structure.
    • Imagine that you are a manager of a chemical company. An accident has occurred in which chemicals leaked into the ground water nearby. The community is unaware of the accident. Compare the primary costs involved in cleaning up the water immediately (and thus confessing) versus hiding your culpability now and possibly paying more in the future. Predict the impact on profitability in both situations.



    Discussion #3

    “Market Structures” Please respond to the following:

    • From the scenario, assuming Katrina’s Candies is operating in the monopolistically competitive market structure and faces the following weekly demand and short-run cost functions:

    VC = 20Q+0.006665 Q2 with MC=20 + 0.01333Q and FC = $5,000

    P = 50-0.01Q and MR = 50-0.02Q

    *Where price is in $ and Q is in kilograms. All answers should be rounded to the nearest whole number.

    • Algebraically, determine what price Katrina’s Candies should charge in order for the company to maximize profit in the short run. Determine the quantity that would be produced at this price and the maximum profit possible.



    business continuity and disaster recovery

    First, in one sentence tell me the most interesting thing that you have learned in this class. For example, you can state: “The most interesting thing I have learned is that malware is extremely hard to detect in incident response.”

    Then for the rest of the reflective essay, tell me why it is was so interesting. As an example, you could start off saying: “I was fascinated that malware can be created to avoid detection systems. I thought that detection systems would be able to find any malware coming through. It seems quite deceptive. Then I can’t believe that the malware can even change once you start doing forensics on it.” The tone of your essay should be an informal tone and you should use a lot of “I” statements.

    DO NOT COPY ANY SENTENCE OR PHRASE WORD FOR WORD from any source. If you do, I will report you to the head of our department for plagiarism and you will get a zero for the final.

    This final essay must be 100% in your own words. You should not be referencing any sources. I want you to answer it just like you would if a fellow student asked you about something interesting that you learned in the class. Do not define anything for me. I already know the definitions and concepts covered in this class. Rather, I want your opinions and views
