What is the difference between standard and advanced studies diplomas in high school?
This is going to vary from state to state but variances could include the numbers of foreign, fine arts, or advanced courses you may need to graduate if on a recommended or advanced plan. Talk to your high school counselor about your plans for the future and if any of the above credits are necessary for your future plans.
When they stop selling standard light bulbs in the US, can I still buy them from Mexico or overseas?
I too have not had great success with the new fluorescent bulbs. They do not last as long as they claim.
As an industrial electrician I can tell you that I have personally put the new bulbs to the test with my amp probe and they do pull less current (a.k.a they are cheaper to run).
I kept each of the old style bulbs as I swapped them out. I have them stored with newspaper wrapped around them. I also have 2 or 3 boxes of 60 watt and 100 watt bulbs saved back as well.
For $20 or $25 bucks you can buy a 40 to 50 bulbs and stash them back. Its probably a super smart move. You won't regret it.
What definition is a standard movie in a theater projected at?
If it's film it's the equivalent of several thousand digital pixels. If it's digital it is probably what is called "2K" (2048×1080) at 24 or 48 frames per second, or "4K" (4096×2160) at 24 frames per second.
What is the population standard deviation of the difference between sample means?
E[X - Y] = E[X] - E[Y] = 75.5136 - 67.0361 = 8.4775
Var[X - Y] = Var[X] + Var[Y] ........ Note plus sign is not an error.
= 0.42933^2 + 0.59831^2 = 0.542299105
Standard deviation of X - Y = sqrt(0.542299105) = 0.7364 (4 dec. pl.)
The distribution of X - Y is normal with mean 8.4775 and s.d 0.7364
EDIT. You may be surprised that the standard deviation of the groups combined is larger than either on their own. This is because it is quite possible for a large member of the first to have a low member of the second subtracted and vice-versa causing more variability.
After digital transition, will standard analog cable will work the same?
You don't have to do anything.
The cable companies are under federal orders to continue broadcasting the local Over The Air TV in analog until at least 2012. The FCC will be reviewing their order when 2012 approaches, and might extend the date further. The cable companies do have the option of providing converter boxes instead of the analog transmissions. What they will do regarding their other existing analog TV is up to them. I expect that they will convert some or all to digital as time goes by. If you are not satisfied with their analog offerings, you will have to rent a digital cable box from the cable company.
If you do buy a digital TV, then you should buy one with a QAM tuner, in addition to the usual ATSC and NTSC tuners. With these, you can receive digital TV, via antenna, and analog and digital TV via cable (excluding encrypted channels), without a cable box.
Painting the standard white hull of an Enterprise dinghy a different colour. Where do I start?
the first thing to do is to decide what brand of paint you want to use and then follow their prep. instructions. we recently fiberglass and painted a 14' plywood skiff and used interlux paint products (petit also makes easy to use paint)
we had had good results using one or two part polyurethane paints. these paints give a hard, very durable high gloss finish.
normal steps in prepping a painted boat is to first chemically wash the boat with their solvent (to remove any wax) then sand the paint. wash the boat with soap/water. dry the boat, apply one or two undercoats of paint, sanding between coats, and the two coats of polyurethane high gloss paint. using a foam roller and tipping out the paint with a dry sable brush will give you great results.
interlux paint has a good painting guide that you can find on line by searching for "interlux painting guide"
hope this helps
It sounds like you want to change the data series to a bar graph and it is currently a line graph.
You don't state which version of Excel you are using. This works on 2007/2010.
Right click on the data series for your standard error and select Change Series Chart Type.
You can now choose another chart type for that series.
Note that you can't have combine chart types when using 3D charts.
What is the industry standard for concept idea for a feature film?
There is no "industry standard" for the situation your talking about, so any "deal" you can make that you feel is fair for you and your situation is what you should take... if you feel that it is fair and that you won't get cheated or ripped off later. Having said that, the percentages you gave do seem a bit low, though you don't indicate what those are percentages of. Is that a percentage of the production budget or of the gross profits or of net profits? Particularly when dealing with financial aspects in the film industry, there is no such thing as being too specific. Make sure you define precisely what the terms of the deal will be, what your credit will be, what your involvement will be, how much money you will be paid upfront, and what your cut will be of the profit.
It's important to note that most Actors, Writers, Directors, and some Producers command very high rates upfront BECAUSE film distributors/studios have reputations for very creative accounting which can and has cheated people out of earned income. For instance, you could agree to take very little money upfront in exchange for a high percentage of the NET income (that's the money left over after expenses are deducted from the GROSS). So, what these companies do is to inflate their expenses on paper so that the effective NET dollars are less...which would reduce the money you receive if you've made a deal for a percentage of the NET. Those with the most power in Hollywood are able to command high upfront fees to help protect against being ripped off later AND they may be able to get a percentage of the GROSS.
Technically speaking, you can't copyright or "protect" ideas themselves... but you can copyright the "expression of an idea." Given that you have your idea written out with some modicum of detail (it sounds as if you have written a "Treatment"), that could possibly be enough to protect you legally if that company tried to cheat you later on or steal your idea outright. Generally, though, it does take a full screenplay to ensure that kind of protection.
If your script is good enough to attract the attention and production dollars of an investor, that alone should be enough to get the attention of an agent who will be more than willing to represent you and protect your creative and financial interests. He will take 10% of your earnings, which may seem like a lot, but remember that he/she is there to make sure you get what is fair and that no one cheats you at any point in the process. That 10% is more than worth it for this project and in the long term.
So, since you have the attention of a production company, I would urge you to seek out the representation of a professional entertainment agent before you sign anything.
I've included links to some resources that will prove invaluable for you as you continue with this project and others.

Find the standard equation of a parabola that has a vertical axis and satisfies the given conditions?
By "standard equation", I assume you mean the vertex form of the equation.
Vertex = [(12-4)/2, 8] = (4,8)
y = a(x-g)² + h
y = a(x-4)² + 8
0 = a(-4-4)² + 8
0 = 64a + 8
a = -1/8
The equation of the parabola in vertex form is:
y = -(x-4)²/8 + 8
In case you really did want it in standard form:
y = -(x²-8x+16)/8 + 8
8y = -x² + 8x - 16 + 64
x² - 8x +8y - 48 = 0
if you know how to drive a car you;ll catch on. I learned in 1 hour. take the car to a parking lot to practice and when you feel secure find a small hill not to steep to practice on. once your get the feel for the clutch you;ll get the hang of it. it sounds alot harder than it really is. just remember always make a turn in second gear, always park it in first gear and learn to down shift.
How to find the mean and standard deviation of two normally distributed sets combined?
mean(y) = mean(x1 + x2) = mean(x1) + mean(x2) = 5 + 7 = 12
variance(y) = [stddev(y)]^2
var(y) = var(x1) + var(x2) + 2covar(x1,x2)
If X1 and X2 are independent (it should be mentioned in the problem somewhere), then covar(x1,x2) = 0
var(y) = 1^2 + 2^2 = 5
then Stddev(y) = square root of 5
What is wrong with the gold standard and how does the fiat system function?
There is nothing wrong with the gold standard. Government just went with fiat currency because it allowed them to manipulate currency such that they could get more money without raising taxes. Just print more currency and voila, the government has more purchasing power (while our savings has been indirectly depleted).
What is the difference between standard deviation and standard error?
Standard deviation refers to the amount you expect an individual measurement to vary from the average. Standard error of the mean is how much you expect a value averaged from several measurements to vary from the true mean.
Standard error = Standard deviation / sqrt(n)
Where n is the number of measurements you've taken and averaged into that value. The idea is that the more measurements you take the closer your average should be to the real average, even if the standard deviation in any particular measurement hasn't gone down.
What is the standard deviation of the weights of the boxes with 10 bars?
If X and Y are independent random variables, then a linear combination will have a variance of:
σ²(aX+bY) = a²σ²(X) + b²σ²(Y)
Let X be the weight of the bars
Let Y be the weight of the box
Therefore the variance of the weights of the boxes with 10 bars is:
= 100σ²(X) + σ²(Y)
= 100×4² + 8²
Therefore the standard deviation is:
σ = √1664 ≈ 41
What are the standard keyboard minor scale fingerings?
It depends on the key. The reason for the differences in fingering in different keys is because you generally do not want to play a black note with the thumb when playing scales.
Here is a link to proper fingering for playing the scales in various keys.
It depends on the type of "acoustic" guitar. Remember all guitars (except the "flat-board" electric guitar) are "acoustic"
since their sound comes out of the body (box) .
Classical guitars (nylon strings) have a bit smaller body than steel-strings acoustics. However, the standard size for the "scale size" of the guitar is determine by the distance from the nut (neck) to the bridge saddle.
The longer the scale size the more likely you will need to "spread" your fingers to reach a given fret. Almost all guitars are made with 650mm scale length (about 25.6") .
People with short fingers prefer a "short scale" and longer finger players prefer a "long scale" instruments.
The total length of the guitar from the top of the head to the end of the soundboard (box) does not necessary reflect the scale length of the guitar.
The steel-strings instruments players do consider the size of
the sound board (box part of the guitar) as an indication of
how much volume (loudness) it will bring out. The quality of construction and the wood used for the soundboard is the important factor in this matter.
Remember that playability should be the criteria that you
should consider first in getting YOUR guitar. I myself play a classical guitar with a 620mm scale that sounds as good as
my guitar with a 650mm scale. When I stand them side to side the 620mm is less than 1/2 inch shorter than the 650mm.
If you are planning in buying a guitar make sure you try many
instruments within your price range before making a final decision. Then once you select one do try guitars at double the price of the one you choose to determine if the added price is worth the difference is sound and playability.
Surprisingly, many times it will be hard to tell the difference.
What is the standard circuit design software in the Electrical Engineering industry?
For years, the standard was PSPICE, which grew out of a program called SPICE (from UC Berkeley, as I recall). It was available for free as a demo version capable of doing limited simulations with 20 or less components, which was great for schools.
Now, many work environments have custom SPICE programs, but the two biggest suppliers for circuit simulation are CADENCE and SYNOPSYS. I believe CADENCE bought PSPICE awhile ago (don't know if they still have it or spun it off). SYNOPSYS supplies the software for something like > 90% of all commercial digital design work and has some very usable FPGA software.
Pretty much, wherever you work, you'll end up using whatever they use there. Most simulators take a "standard SPICE netlist" and most have graphic interfaces now. There are also many free and/or open-source simulators available.
When did Standard Italian become a dominant language in Italy?
1. The local dialect that was closest to Standard Italian is Tuscan (which, as you can guess, comes from the Toscana region). Nevertheless, the language has changed a great deal from its humble origins
2. Yes, most (if not all) Young Italians (myself included) speak "Standard" Italian as opposed to our local dialects. You will find people in cities like Bergamo who may still speak their (incomprehensible) dialects, but they are becoming few and far between
3. Standard Italian was the language of the Upper Classes and the Government for hundreds of years before unification. Despite this, the masses still spoke in their dialects. It was only following the unification (which was completed in 1870) that the Italian spoken today begin to gain footing throughout all social classes.
Hope this helped!
What was the standard gear ration in a cj5 jeep and what were the options?
too many changes during that many years. the gears were, 354, 373, 410. you have to realize that
willys/jeep/amc, used engines from other manufacturers. idk 100% but, pontiac 4cyl, chevy L6,
buick v6, chevy v8. again idk 100% but I dont think too many if any had a.t. until the cj7, usually had
3 spd with hi/low transfer case.
What is the standard by which radio carbon dating is shown to be accurate?
As one might expect NIST (the modern name for NBS) also helps with standards for radio carbon dating. The main two callibration methods are to the so-called "1890 wood" and the oxalic acid samples, as described below, although the ANU sugar standard is also used.
The original callibration materials used when the technique was developed was from wood found in an Egyptian tomb, and a sample of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
I suspect you are asking this question because you do not believe radioactive dating, since it conflicts with Bishop Usher's derived age of the earth. I might point out that counting rings of coral, like counting tree rings, shows that we have had continuous growth of some corals that go back tens of millions of years.
What are the standard sizes of bathroom countertops?
Hard to answer your question, in most homes there is no standard anything. If you mean depth, it is usually just a little deeper than your bathroom cupboards. The length is usually determined by how much room you have and how much free counter space you want. Most counter builders bill the lengths in even footage (if you want 9 ft. 5 in. they bill you for 10 ft.) in 6, 8, 10, and 12 foot lengths. This probably didn't help but go to a local hardware store that sells counters and counter tops and talk to them, they can give you a good idea.
What is the standard liquor pour spout measurement?
I wouldn't get a pre-measured spout, because most mixed drinks call for differing amounts of liquor. What I would do is to go and get the standard free-pour spout and a Jigger/Pony measure. It looks like two silver cones attached at their ends. One side, the Jigger holds 1 oz, and the other side, the Pony, holds 1/2 oz. Much more versatile; just pour into the Jigger/Pony and transfer to the glass.
Also, in response to the second part of your question, when you go to a bar and order a "shot" of something, it's usually 1 oz, which is a standard measure.
How do you infer about the population standard deviation from a single sample?
If you're willing to assume a sample from a normally distributed population, then a confidence interval for the standard deviation can be constructed by squaring the sample standard deviation to find the sample variance. A 95% confidence interval for the population variance will be
[ s^2/X(0.975, n-1), s^2/X(0.025, n-1) ], where s^2 is the sample variance and
X(0.025, n-1) and X(0.975,n-1) are percentile points for the chi-square distribution with n-1 degrees of freedom, where n is your sample size.
A confidence interval for the standard deviation can then be found by taking square roots of both endpoints of the confidence interval for the variance.
Being a female (blond, thin and petite (5'2, 100 lbs) in criminal justice. People think its great to have women in law enforcement yet I get labeled as a "dyke" or a "whore"...both are wrong as I have been happily married for 20 years and was a virgin for my husband.
Great question by the way....really made me think! WHat about yours???
How to find total standard deviation is we have standard deviation of different parts of pool of data?
The average is just the average of the three samples:
(mean1 + mean2 + mean3) / 3
The standard deviation is the standard deviation for each individual sample squared, added together, and square rooted:
sqrt(SD1^2 + SD2^2 + SD3^2)
What does the standard deviation reveal about a particular data point?
The standard deviation of a point provides a measure of how "far" the data point is from the mean of the complete set of data points for an experiment.
So if a point has a standard deviation of 1.5 and another has a standard deviation of -1.5, then they are both equally "far," (i.e. deviated), from the mean. It's just that one point is greater than the mean, and the other is less than the mean.
Regarding your last question, no. The standard deviation is a measure of how far a single data point is from the mean of the complete set of data points of the experiment.
What is the standard deviation of a stock and bond portfolio?
This is actually very easy question!
Correlation of bond and stock = 0 as it was given, so this means;
Covariance of bond and stock = 0
Sp^2 = Wb^2(Sb^2) + Ws^2(Ss^2) + 2WbWsCOVbs
Sp^2 = 0.3^2(0.01^2) + 0.7^2(0.09)^2 + 0
Sp^2 = 0.003978
Sp = 0.0631 = 6.31%
So the standard deviation of the portfolio is approximately 6.31%.
What is the standard size for a sheet of plywood in countries using the metric system?
Check out this web page for a rough idea. http://www.gunnersens.com.au/products/building-products/plywood.html
There are many applications for plywood and different types for the different applications. By the way, in metric system of building, most measurements are in mm.
In Australia, timber stud walls are usually made of 90x35 or 90x45mm sizes. You can also get 70x35 & 70x45mm thicknesses too but aren't used usually for structural purposes. Studs are usually spaced at 450mm centres for structural walls, and 600mm for some structural and also non-structural walls.
Ceiling heights standards are 2400mm, 2550mm and 3000mm high.
How to use Standard Deviation and Beta to determine a stocks volatility?
This is an excellent tutorial that someone else posted on how to calculate beta using Excel. A beta higher than one doesnt necessarily mean a stock is highly volatile. It just means the returns are more volatile than the market. Beta is the risk that is added to a diversified portfolio.
How can standard enthalpy of combustion be under standard conditions?
No, its not hypothetical. lets say you are burning a hydrocarbon, then, yes, it'll get hot. Let's say for sake of arguement, it all reaches 250C. If you measured everything just like that, you'd be including the energy to take your products, CO2 and H2O to 250C, so you must let it return to standard conditions so this energy is evolved and measured.
This is so, so important with a product like water. at 250C it is H2O(g) .. ie steam. You know from your basic science that a lot of heat is evolved when steam at 100C condenses to water at 100C. This is why we have not only standard temperature but also standard state.
What you put there is the square of the radius of the circle. The radius is simply the distance between the center and any point on the circle - i.e. the distance between (4, -1) and (0, 2). By the pythagorean theorem, this is √((4-0)²+(-1-2)²), and so the square of the radius is (4-0)²+(-1-2)², which is 25.
So the standard form is (x-4)² + (y+1)² = 25.
