Each student will track the exchange rates on a given currency pair as per below list and record the closing rates in New York over a period of six months from September 1, 2016  to February 28, 2017, using a reliable Forex website. Excel software may be used to record the data and produce charts.

Students will then work in groups (three students per group) to prepare a report to analyse the major exchange rate movements by identifying and evaluating the impact of various factors (economic, political etc) on these movements. Your report (approx. 3000 words or 1000 words per currency pair) should include an introduction, major movements (opening/closing rates with charts, high/low for the period), events and activities in the Foreign Exchange Market with impact on the currency exchange rates. Reference should also be made to interest rates, balance of payments and monetary policy.

The written report should include a list of references showing the source of literature review and also an executive summary and conclusion with reference to all currency pairs.

Design of Power system for a Data Center

A data center with the dimension of 40ft Long x 30ft Wide x12ft High is located on the 12th floor of a high rise building in downtown Chicago, IL.   The data center must operate all the time regardless of the availability of power from the utility. The loads can be categorized as high, medium and low critical. Table 1 shows the power rating of each cabinet and the critical level of each load.  The cabinets are 12-ft wide x 6-ft High x 2-ft deep. Four of these cabinets must be strategically placed in the room to obtain the best heat exchange at minimum cost. The cooling registers are located on the floor and the exhaust registers are placed on the ceiling as shown in Figure 1. The cooling cost per BTU is $0.01. Each cabinet generates 30,000 BTU per hour and heat must be removed to operate properly. The cost of electricity is $0.1 per kilowatt-hour. Exhaust fan can help to remove heat faster.  A 1000 cfm require a 1 hp motor.

Each highly critical load must be supported by 5 sources of power; such as one utility, 2 UPS and two generators.

Medium critical loads require utility, UPS and two generators.

Low critical loads require utility, UPS and a generator.

Select the sizes for of the two generators to provide power to the racks as well as cooling for High and Medium Critical loads.

The UPS must be able to withstand 20 minutes for Medium and low and 1 hour for High Critical Loads.

Determine the depth of Discharge and battery sizes and type using Table 2 information.

UPS costs $750.00/Kw for 20 minutes operation.

UPS costs $2500/kW for 1 hour operation.

Generator Costs $1000/KW.


  1. Provide a drawing to show the location of each load in the cabinet to obtain proper cooling for each load at lowest cost and risk
  2. Provide a drawing for the cabinet layout
  3. Determine the size of cooling system (BTU)
  4. Calculate the size exhaust fans (CFM, hp)
  5. Provide the UPS size
  6. Calculate the Battery size and type in the UPS system
  7. Determine the Generator size
  8. Calculate the Total power requirement (with 20% safety margin)
  9. Determine the System Efficiency
  10. Calculate Total Cost of Cooling, UPS and Generators.

Paper help: Visual Analysis of Anime

Assignment help: Click

General Essay Topic: Visual Analysis of Anime


Essay Requirements:

This is an 8 pages long essay. Note that this paper is a research paper and must illustrate your ability to do research and to write in a scholarly manner. You should cite at least ten ACADEMIC sources in your paper. This is the bare minimum. Academic means articles from peer reviewed journals or books. It does not mean websites, wikis, or journalistic sources. You may, of course, make reference to these kinds of non-academic sources, but this should be in addition to academic sources, not in lieu of them. Be sure to use a proper method of citation in your paper. APA citation.


The Purpose/porposal of this Essay:

This is an academic paper about visual analysis of anime, particular in the Japanese anime (but you can illustrate the Disney cartoons as well). Thus, I hope you could focus on specific/concrete anime in order to better analyze the gender/race issue of anime. I would like you to situate this paper in semiotic theory and feminist work on the male gaze. And later take your arguments further to examine the semiotic portrayal of race in those anime and how it overlaps with race. For this paper, I’d like to see a development of these theoretical issues. Take a look on journals such as Journal of Visual Communication to see if you can get more material on visual representations of race and gender. It would be especially relevant if you can find a discussion of these factors in the context of anime.
