This bootleg wallet, on casual inspection, looks just like my friend Bob’s authentic Ridge wallet. They feel alike too; they’re about the same weight and the surface of the leather is equally smooth. Bob could sell his wallet for $200 dollars on Craig’s List so I could probably sell the bootleg wallet for about the same amount. The stitching clasps, zippers, and other details are slightly sloppier on the knock-off, but Bob’s wallet has minor imperfections too. Which of the following is the best challenge to the strength (or reliability) of the argument above a. It would be immoral to sell a known knockoff as if it were an authentic item. (By the way, this is true whether or not it is the correct answer.) b. There are important, numerous dissimilarities between the knockoff and the authentic wallet; a close inspection, which the buyer of a $200 wallet might require, would reveal the dissimilarities in detail and craftsmanship. c. It is possible for the argument to have all true premises and a false conclusion. d. Bob could not sell his used wallet for $200, even if it is authentic. e. The sample is too small. One wallet is not a large enough sample to justify the conclusion about all bootleg wallets.

We return now to the n ow to the nonlinear equations problem: given F: R” – R”, find XHERM such that F(x,) = 0, (6.5.1) ction we show how Newton’s method for (6.5.1) can be combined Whal methods for unconstrained optimization to produce global In this section we show how N with globa methods for (6.5.1). The Newton step for (6.5.1) is xt = x – J(x.)- F(x), (6.5.2) where Jx.) is the Jacobian matrix of F at xe. From Section 5.2 we know that (6.5.2) is locally q-quadratically convergent to xx, but not necessarily globally convergent. Now assume xc is not close to any solution xx of (6.5.1). How would one decide then whether to accept x + as the next iterate? A reasonable answer is that || F(x) || should be less than || F(x)|| for some norm ||· |, a convenient choice being the l, norm || F(x) || 2 = F(x)”F(x). Requiring that our step result in a decrease of || F(x)||2 is the same thing we would require if we were trying to find a minimum of the function || F(x) ||2. we have in effect turned our attention to the corresponding mini- mization problem: min f(x) = {F(x)”F(x), (6.5.3) XERN where Lui

Dr. Dew is a clinical psychologist who is interested in the link between mental illness and criminal

Dr. Dew is a clinical psychologist who is interested in the link between mental illness and criminal activity. Dr. Dew gets IRB permission to study patients at all 5 inpatient residential mental health facilities in the state. There are 4,307 patients currently living in these facilities. Dr. Dew asks patients whether they have ever been convicted of a crime. Du Dew collects a sample size of 1,369. Dr Dew finds that 13% (43%) have been convicted of a crime 1. What figure noted above represents the sample size? 1. 13% of patients 2. 5 mental health facilities 3.4307 patients 4. 1369 patients A journalist interviews Dr Dew about the study findings. The journalist criticizes the sample size as being too small and because of this the findings are not generalizable, 2. How might Dr. Dew respond to the journalist? 1″Actually, studies with 1000 participants is an ideal number for a representative sample 2. “Generalizability is not the main priority in this study.” 3 “We made sure to use unbiased sampling techniques in our study.” 4 “Our measures of criminal activity have been validated in past studies Dr. Dew’s colleague, Dr. Mountain, tried to replicate the findings in mental health facilities in another state. For their study, Dr Mountain decided to use a snowball sampling technique 3. Which of the following examples below best represents what Dr. Mountain did to recruit participants2 1 Snowball sampling is impossible to do in this study 2. Dr. Mountain made sure to over-represent particular groups in the sample 3 Dr Mountain only included those who volunteered to participate in the study 4 Dr Mountain asked participants to recommend other people they know in the facility to participate in the study After reviewing Dr. Dew’s survey, you find a few issues with the item measuring criminal activity. For example, one item states, “I have never not committed a crime 4. What is the main issue with this item? 1. It is a leading question 2 It is a forced-choice question 3. It has a double negative 4 It is a double barreled question After reviewing De Dew’s survey, you find a few issues with the items meaning communal activity. For example, one item states, I have never not committed a crime.” 5. Which of the four big validities does this threateni? 1 Internal 2 External 3 Statistical 4 Construct

I am supposed to list the names of instructors who have not used projects (PJ) as a basis for grading in their courses. There are 8 instructors, I can get 7 of them to show, but I want the one that isn’t showing. Here is what I have so far: SELECT first_name||’ ‘||last_name “Name” FROM instructor WHERE instructor_id IN (select instructor_id from section where section_id IN (select section_id from grade where grade_type_code=”PJ”));

SHELL SCRIPT PROGRAMMING Write a shell script run_progs.sh that will –> run EMBOSS water and EMBOSS needle program in succession on the same input files –> take as command-line arguments the names of sequences within sequences.fasta that will be input to water and needle –> have water save its output in a file whose name is constructed from the sequence name plus the extension “.water.out” have needle save its output in a file whose name is constructed from the sequence name plus the extension “.needle.out” For each invocation of water or needle by/within the script, the second sequence in the alignment will be the cloning vector. An example of using the script is ./run_progs.sh sequence1 sequence2 sequence3 Hints: You will need a loop in your script. You will need to invoke water and needle with all their necessary parameters specified on the command line. To force water and needle to use their default values for gap opening and extension penalties, specify the -auto option. DETAIL ON EMBOSS WATER and NEEDLE These programs will take in any 2 DNA sequences and compute the best alignment. A normal run of these programs 1) Needle program nlt895@tux7:~/b200lab7> needle sequence1.fasta sequence2.fasta Needleman-Wunsch global alignment of two sequences Gap opening penalty [10.0]: Gap extension penalty [0.5]: Output alignment [sequence1.needle]: q9.1v2 2) Water program nlt895@tux7:~/b200lab7> water sequence1.fasta sequence2.fasta Smith-Waterman local alignment of sequences Gap opening penalty [10.0]: Gap extension penalty [0.5]: Output alignment [sequence1.water]: seq1.example nlt895@tux7:~/b200lab7>

Thermal Doppler broadening of spectral lines is caused by the movement of particles in a gas. The speed of particles in a gas can be estimated by equating the kinetic energy of these particles with kT. (a) Use this information to derive an equation for the speed of the particles. (b) Use your answer of (a) to derive an equation for the Doppler broadening, i.e. A1/1 as a function of the temperature and mass of the particles (and a few constants). (c) At the surface of the Sun, with a temperature of 6,000 K, how broad is the spectral line from the transition of the n= 3 to the n= 1 energy level for electrons in hydrogen atoms, based on only thermal Doppler broadening?
