How do you figure out who your customer is and key characteristics about where your customer lives? Explore your data options in the library this week to come up with a customer profile for the business you may be proposing, or an imaginary business.
For example, ladies, you may have considered working with one of the personal selling businesses like Thirty-One™, but before you sign on for anything, you should do some market analysis in your area to look for some key elements of the target population:
1.How many females are in your area in the target demographic?
2.How many potential consumers, male and female, are in the geographic area?
3.What is the disposable income on average in your target market?
4.What tie in activities are available in your market that could help you sell (sporting events, flea markets, convention centers, etc)

Molecular BiologyOrganisms do not exist in isolation. When they interact a relationship develops. There are three
main types of relationships between organisms:
A relationship where one of the organisms is helped by the relationship and the other is
unharmed is known as commensalism. For example, barnacles do not harm the whale to
which they attach themselves
A relationship where both organisms benefit from the interaction is known as mutualism. For
example, a certain type of bird catches a ride on a rhinoceros. He eats the bugs off the back
of the rhino all the while cleaning and preening the rhino.
Parasitism is a relationship in which one organism benefits and the other one is harmed or
even killed. An example of parasitism involving microorganisms is how viruses use their
host’s cells to reproduce, often harming and sometimes killings the host as with a
tapeworm inside the human gastrointestinal tract.
Find two additional example organisms for each of the three types of symbiotic relationship.
Explain how each organism enters into the symbiotic relationship and what can be done to aid
and deter their relationship. (12 marks)
The Durham Region began composting initiatives in an attempt to reduce the amount of waste
residents sent to landfills each year. Curb-side “green bins” are collected weekly, and organic
waste is held in a central location where decomposers are added to break down the waste
Adding beneficial microorganisms to compost at large-scale composting facilities aids in the
decomposition or organic waste, and produces high-quality compost in a reduced amount of
time. However, the microorganisms can leach into groundwater and run off into nearby water
systems, where they can harm other organisms.
Do the benefits outweigh the cost? Create a table in which you do a cost-benefit (pros and cons)
analysis of Durham Region’s ‘Green Bin’ initiative. (10 marks)
Once you have completed the analysis write a paragraph in which you argue whether or not
Durham Region should cancel it’s ‘Green Bin’ program. (10 marks) Marking rubric on the

You are to assume that you are working as a Tax Manager, working for a firm of accountants.
A new client, Nick White, has asked your firm to act as tax advisers to both himself and his wife, Caroline.
Nick is self-employed and his wife is employed as his assistant. She answers the telephone, makes appointments, produces invoices and chases late paying clients. She would also expect to help out in times of emergency, in whatever capacity she can, to ensure that deadlines are met.
His taxable profits have been steadily rising over the last few years, but he expects that they have now stabilised at £115,000 per annum. This is before paying £5,000 salary to Caroline.
Nick has asked for advice on whether to incorporate his business. In particular, he requires details of:
1. the general advantages and disadvantages, given his level of profit.
2. the advantages and disadvantages of setting the company up with equal shareholdings with his wife. She would be registered as company secretary.
3. tax-efficient profit withdrawal. He wishes to leave £30,000 per year in the business to ensure he can afford up to date equipment, for emergencies and expansion if necessary.
Nick has asked for a meeting to discuss the matter, but in the meantime would like a preliminary report setting out the general factors to be taken into account.
1. to prepare a report for Nick, answering (generally) his queries as above.
2. to also include within the report details of any additional information, together with reasons, that you require before you would be able to finally advise him as to a prospective company’s shareholding and efficient profit extraction.
