Consider **the** following example. Berkeley Paint Company makes two colors of paint, blue and gold. **The** blue paint sells for $10 per gallon, while **the** gold paint sells for $15 per gallon. **The** company has **one** factory, and can make only **one** color of paint at a time. However, blue paint is easier **to** make so **the** factory can make 40 gallons per hour of blue paint, but only 30 gallons per hour of gold paint. In addition, **the** marketing department tells manufacturing that they can sell at most 860 gallons of gold paint and 1000 gallons of blue paint. If a week is 40 hours and paint can’t be stored until next week, we need **to** determine how many gallons of blue and gold paint **to** make; so that **the** total revenue is maximized.

In activity 5, **the** students had **to** ask another partner **to** write a sentence for them and, then, **to** show **the** stress pattern with circles. This exercise, together with number 6, was **one** of **the** less answered questions because in 6 of **the** handouts this exercise was left in blank (NA). In addition, **one** of them showed very irregular orthography and it could not be read. In consequence, it was considered intelligible. Only 4 of **the** students could answer this without any mistake. 3 of them had between 99’99% and 75% of mistakes and 1 of them had between 74’99% and 50% of mistakes. This percentage was made counting **the** syllables of **the** sentence written by **the** partner and counting how many big or small circles did not correspond with **the** right syllable, i.e. strong and weak, respectively.

In **the** basic corporate governance setup, **the** shareholders elect **the** board of directors who in turn appoint **the** top corporate managers, such as **the** CEO. **The** CEO is usually a member of **the** board of directors. **One** aspect of corporate governance we do not talk much about is **the** issue of an independent chair of a firm’s board of directors. However, in a large number of U.S. corporations, **the** CEO and **the** board chair are **the** same person. In “U.S. Corporate Governance: Accomplishments and Failings, A Discussion with Michael Jensen and Robert Monks” (moderated by Ralph Walkling), Journal of Applied Corporate Finance , Vol. 20, No. 1 (Winter 2008), **the** point is made that combining **the** CEO and board chair positions can contribute **to** poor corporate governance. Both Jensen and Monks give an edge **to** **the** U.K. in governance partially because over 90 percent of U.K. companies are chaired by outside directors and not **the** CEO. This is a contentious issue confronting many U.S. corporations. For example, in May 2008, 19 institutional investors, including some of ExxonMobil’s largest shareholders and members of **the** founding Rockefeller family, supported a resolution **to** split **the** jobs of CEO and board chair. About 40 percent of **the** shareholders voted for **the** split.

Korean Hangul is an alphabetic script with 14 basic consonants and 10 basic vowels (Jamos). Unlike Latin or Cyrillic scripts, **the** individual characters have **to** be arranged in rectangular clusters about **the** same size as Chinese characters. Each cluster represents a syllable. An unlimited number of syllables can be formed out of this finite set of vow- els and consonants. Modern Korean orthographic standards (both in South Korea and North Korea), however, put some restriction on **the** formation of these clusters. Therefore only a finite number of orthographically correct syllables exist. **The** Korean Charac- ter encoding defines individual code points for each of these syllables (KS X 1001:1998 and KS X 1002:1992). So Hangul, albeit alphabetic, is treated like **the** Chinese and Japanese writing systems with tens of thousands of ideographic/logographic characters. ISO 10646/Unicode offers both ways of representing Hangul used for modern Korean by encoding Conjoining Hangul Jamos (alphabets: http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/ U1100.pdf) in addition **to** encoding all **the** orthographically allowed Hangul syllables in modern Korean (http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/UAC00.pdf). **One** of **the** most daunting challenges in Korean typesetting with L A TEX and related typesetting system is

In our previous discussions, we learned about operators for comparing values—equal, not equal, less than, and so on. Most of these operators work only on primitive types, not on objects. If you try **to** use other values as operands, **the** Java compiler produces errors. **The** exceptions **to** this rule are **the** operators for equality: == (equal) and != (not equal). When applied **to** objects, these operators don't do what you might first expect. Instead of checking whether **one** object has **the** same value as **the** other object, they determine whether both sides of **the** operator refer **to** **the** same object.

having a finitely generated colinear injective resolution. Then **the** ”preinjective” part of **the** connecting components consists of linear modules and **the** preprojective part of these components consists of colinear modules. Finally **one** can show that **the** regular components consist of modules that are both linear and colinear. Note that this means that over a radical cube zero selfinjective Koszul algebra every indecomposable regular module is up **to** shift, both linear and colinear.

probability that more users want **to** use **the** system than **the** system can accommodate? Problem 38. **The** problem of points. Telis and Wendy play a round of golf ( 18 holes) for a $10 stake, and their probabilities of winning on any **one** hole are P and 1 - p, respectively, independent of their results in other holes. At **the** end of 10 holes, with **the** score 4 **to** 6 in favor of Wendy, Telis receives an urgent call and has **to** report back **to** work. They decide **to** split **the** stake in proportion **to** their probabilities of winning had they completed **the** round, as follows. If PT and pw are **the** conditional probabilities that Telis and Wendy, respectively, are ahead in **the** score after 18 holes given **the** 4-6 score after 10 holes, then Telis should get a fraction PT / (PT + pw ) of **the** stake, and Wendy should get **the** remaining pw /(PT + pw ). How much money should Telis get? Note: This is an example of **the**, so-called, problem of points, which played an important historical role in **the** development of probability theory. **The** problem was posed by Chevalier de Mere in **the** 17th century **to** Pascal, who introduced **the** idea that **the** stake of an interrupted game should be divided in proportion **to** **the** players' conditional probabilities of winning given **the** state of **the** game at **the** time of interruption. Pascal worked out some special cases and through a correspondence with Fermat , stimulated much thinking and several probability-related investigations. Problem 39. A particular class has had a history of low attendance. **The** annoyed professor decides that she will not lecture unless at least k of **the** n students enrolled in **the** class are present. Each student will independently show up with probability Pg if **the** weather is good, and with probability Pb if **the** weather is bad. Given **the** probability of bad weather on a given day, obtain an expression for **the** probability that **the** professor will teach her class on that day.

Maximum likelihood estimation methods were used and **the** input for each analysis was **the** covariance matrix of **the** items. **The** goodness-of-fit of **the** different models was evaluated using **the** following absolute goodness-of-fit indices: (1) **the** χ 2 goodness-of-fit statistic, (2) **the** Root Mean Square Error of Approximation (RMSEA), (3) **the** Goodness of Fit Index (GFI) and (4) **the** Adjusted Goodness of Fit Index (AGFI). Moreover, three relative goodness-of-fit indices were calculated: (1) **the** Normed Fit Index (NFI), (2) **the** Comparative Fit Index (CFI), and (3) **the** Incremental Fit Index (IFI). So, by using different types of fit indices, we are also able **to** compare models **to** **one** another in order **to** determine which **one** fits best **to** our data. Values smaller than .08 for **the** RMSEA are indicative of an acceptable fit, and values greater than .10 should lead **to** model rejection (Cudeck & Browne, 1993). For all other fit indices, i.e. GFI, AGFI, NFI, CFI, and IFI, values greater than .95 are considered as indicating a good fit (Hu & Bentler, 1999; Yu, 2002).
