  • Internet Rating Systems: Censors By Default - 1,203 words
    Internet Systems: Censors by Default The Internet, first designed for the military and the scientific community, has grown larger and faster than anyone could have ever expected. Now being a potpourri of information, from business to entertainment, the Internet is quickly gaining respect as a useful and important tool in thousands of applications, both globally and domestically. But, the growth that the Internet has seen in the last few years has come with some growing pains. Reports of harmful information reaching children are always painful to hear; who wouldn't feel for a mother who lost a child to a pipe bomb that was built from instructions on the Internet? But the greatest pain thus fa ...

One such technological shortcoming questions how would a labeling system keep up with the ever-changing web. With new web content moving through cyberspace constantly, how can all that content be labeled? Voluntary self-labeling is the answer according to the Clinton administration (Weber 1). But that brings up many of it's own questions. The first question is: What happens if the webmaster -the person who creates the web site- decides not to volunteer? The answer is simple. The site is blocked, because the PICS system must, by default, block unlabeled sites in order to ...

  • A Risk Neutral Framework For The Pricing Of Credit Derivatives - 1,476 words
    A Risk Neutral Framework For The Pricing Of Credit Derivatives 1. INTRODUCTION Considerable research effort has gone into Credit Derivatives since the early 1990s. The roots of credit derivatives can be traced back to the notion that the credit risk of a firm can be captured by the credit rating ascribed to it. This premise is also the cornerstone of loan pricing and credit risk management models the world over, including J.P. Morgans CreditMetricsTM. Empirical research enables the predictability of the event of default as well as the Loss in the Event of Default (LIED). This information is expressed in terms of a transition matrix - a matrix that traces out the probabilities the migration o ...

  • A Risk Neutral Framework For The Pricing Of Credit Derivatives - 1,578 words
    ... A or B (6) The probabilities of transition from period 2 to period 3 are obtained as: {RN}02 {RN}23 = {RN}03 Where {RN}ij is the risk-neutral transition matrix from period i to period j Thus, {RN}23 = {RN}-102 {RN}03 Table -6 shows the risk neutral probabilities of transition from period 2 to period 3. From this table, it can be seen that P (F / EA ) = 0.074 and P (F / EB ) = 0.176. In addition, we know that P(EA) = 0.181 and P(EB) = 0.530 (refer Table -5a). Thus, the risk-neutral probability that Rs. 100 is received in period 3 is 0.074 x 0.181 + 0.176 x 0.530 = 0.107 The value of the derivative is obtained as 20.76 Table-6 Risk neutral probabilities of transition from period 2 to perio ...

    Abex Chemicals, Inc. ABEX Chemicals, Inc. ABEX Chemicals, Inc. adalah salah saru produsen utama dari petrochemicals (terutama polyethylene). Selama 8 tahun terakhir ABEX menguasai kurang lebih 25% pangsa pasar petrochemical di Amerika Serikat. Namun demikian, persaingan dalam industri ini nampaknya akan semakin ketat, terutama dengan terjadinya ekspansi yang sangat agresif, dan kemungkinan akan terjadinya resesi pada satu sampai dua tahun mendatang. Berdasarkan analisis statistik, harga petrochemical yang diproduksi oleh ABEX diperkirakan akan terus menurun pada 12 hingga 18 bulan kedepan. Hal ini akan meningkatkan credit risk perusahaan ini.

ABEX Corporation mempunyai tingkat sales yang meningkat tajam pada year 8 akibat naiknya harga jual per unit petrochemical. Kenaikan harga ini membuat sales meningkat tajam (lebih dari 100%) yang kemudian berakhir pada tingkat receivable yang juga meningkat. Receivable yang tinggi ini kemungkinan besar diakibatkan oleh penjualan petrochemical dibandingkan dengan pipelines yang salesnya stabil. Kemungkinan penyebab lain adalah buruknya usaha penagihan yang dilakukan oleh ABEX terhadap outstanding receivablesnya dan adanya penundaan dari customernya sendiri untuk melakukan pelunasan receivable ABEX.

  • Accounting Differences - 1,245 words
    Accounting Differences General Comments about the Insurance Industry Insurance Companies generate revenues by selling insurance policies. These policies provide a known amount of revenue for an unknown amount of losses offsetting that revenue. This can make the matching principle difficult. Some of the potential losses can come years after the insurance policy was written and the premiums received. The liabilities for these future losses are estimated by actuaries and are subject to a certain amount of interpretation by management. The accounting for the premium revenues is reflected in written vs. earned premium. Various statutory requirements are based on written premium, which is the amou ...

  • Antigone Jenny Peterson - 398 words

Some of these shows involve many violent topics and situations. For example, the news qualifies as a violent shows because three fourths of every broadcast involves a violent situation. The next generation of adults is exposed to this violence everyday, thinking its cool or acceptable. I think that if teenagers witness the violent actions in person they would react differently than seeing them on TV. The violent scenes in Antigone are much like crimes that occur everyday.
