Statistics Selection
[ send me this paper ]
A 4 page paper discussing kinds of statistical analyses that can be performed on information already existing or which can easily be obtained within an outpatient ambulatory surgery center to improve operations. If patients move through the surgery center in a straightline fashion, then it is likely that alteration of process could increase the center’s daily capacity without significantly increasing costs, thereby increasing the center’s profitability without adversely affecting patient experience.

Stem Cell Research: the Science and the Ethics
[ send me this paper ]
A 12 page overview of stem cell research and the potentially wonderful applications that research could be applied to in the future. The author emphasizes, however, that stem cell utilization requires the harvest of cells. The primary donors are aborted fetuses. The contention is presented that until that limitation can be overcome, stem cell applications are unethical in that they depend on taking the life of one individual to enhance the life of another. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

Testing Dow Chemical’s Commitment to the Triple Bottom Line
[ send me this paper ]
An 8 page paper elaborating on the problem statement, hypotheses, sampling and statistical method used in the companion paper, KSmgmtDowTBL.rtf. The proposed method is that of applying regression analysis to Dow’s stock price performance after April 1994, the date that the company announced it would halt production of 1,1,1 trichloroethane by December 1995, years in advance of the cessation required either by international treaty by 2005 or by the US 1990 Clean Air Act by 2002. The goal is to determine whether Dow’s commitment to social responsibility and sustainability correlates with financial performance (i.e., the triple bottom line). Bibliography lists 8 sources. Includes an appendix containing expenditures 19932002 for environmental restoration and prevention, and another containing stock price data for the sample period.

The History of Numbers
[ send me this paper ]
This 14 page report discusses the ways
in which humanity has developed numerical systems corresponds to
the ways that the human species also developed. As human
thinking grew in complexity, so did the application of numbers
and the understanding of numbers. And yet, little thought is
given to why human beings came up with the idea of numbers or how
it is possible to count. . Modern historians and social
scientists have traced the processes associated in the history
and development of numbers from Europe to China, via the
Classical World, Mesopotamia, South America and, even more than
any where else on Earth, India and Arab lands. Bibliography lists
3 sources.
