Strategy in China
ijing State-owned Assets Management Co., Ltd (BSAM) was
established in April 2001 by the Chinese government. It is a
wholly-owned state enterprise funded by the Beijing Municipal

The ruler brand is driven by desire of power and control, most afraid of
chaos and being thrown. It is confident, responsible and a leader.
Lover brands live to experience pleasant environment, they fear being
Vision, Mission, Values
If we want to know what a business is we have
to start with its purpose. And its purpose must
lie outside of the business itself. In fact, it must
lie in society since a business enterprise is an

framework to drive growth and innovation

The Nintendo Wii, computer games giant, launched in 2006 and at its heart is the
concept of value innovation. This is a key principle of blue ocean s
Global Climate Change
Difference between weather and climate
o Short period of time, local
o Conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time.
o Long period of time, larger area
o Atmosphere behaves over relatively

Why do we care about Biodiversity?
Why do we care?
Helps with sustainability
Biodiversity has intrinsic value
o Intrinsic value= something that had value in and of itself
Biodiversity also had Utilitarianism
Soil, Agriculture & food
The relationship between food & environment
How we grow food, impacts our environment
Environmental quality impacts our ability to grow food.
Access to food sources affects how people treat their immediate

How do we get biodiversity?

How do we lose it.
Key conceptsWhere does diversity come from?
What is biodiversity and how does it come about?
VIDEO NOTES (EXPERIMENT) PELLAGRA
Sample- Convicts (prison) In a new and clean environment. none of them had the disease to
start with. control them better/experiment better
Independent Variable- The diet. that is what the scientist manipulated
-In science you can never prove anything, you can just gather enough information to support
-Why did we do the Experiments?
-learn how to come up with practical experiments to test the theories that were handed out.

Energy Flow- main energy source on the earth is from the sun, energy can change from one
form to another but cannot be created or destroyed, energy flows from one level to another so
some is lost level to level, energy transfers are inefficient.
National Academy of Sciences (Good Source)
Climate Change- we have been making/taking temperature for hundreds of years which help to
make very accurate graphs or records
Increased 1.4 F over the past 100 years (15% of the total 9 degrees F for ice age)
Air PollutionPrimary- something released into the atmosphere
Secondary- something that happens as a result of the primary
Industrial Smog- primary
Photochemical smog- secondary
What to do about Air Pollution- clean air act, EPA sets limits across country,

Notes & Answers to Questions:
Purple phenotype is recessive to the wild type and it is not sex linked, as there are no significant
differences between the male and female offspring in the F1 or F2. These data w

Stem cell research is an increasingly important subject in medical research and genetics.
Unit 3. Gene
Part 1: Mendelian Problems
Practice these problems to hone your skills at inheritance patterns. They are set up as
multiple-choice to give you some possible answers as guidelines. Your SI will be most
helpful at working through any t
1. Define the relationship between DNA Damage, DNA Repair, and Mutation.
There are a variety of DNA repair processes that are used when DNA is
damaged or mutated. DNA damage is brought on by both environmental
and metabolic factors.
Unit 4. Protein
1. What is different about initiation of transcription in E.coli (bacteria) and yeast
In eukaryotic organisms, the RNA polymerases cant bind directly to
DNA and have to use general transcription factors. The general

Fibroblast cells are primarily known for their role in wound healing, but are also
responsible for the synthesis of the extra cellular matrix (ECM) and connective tissues in animals

1. When talking about cell cycle progression in class, we noted the importance of the protein Rb,
which, when phosphorylated becomes inactive and allows progression through the cell cycle. We also
noted that Rb has many
