The rental agent receives a bonus when the building is fully ocupied and is urging that the rent remain at $300 per month.

How much would advive the owner to charge for rent?
In the best interest of the rental agent, he would certainly advise $300 a month for rent, because he's looking for that bonus.

In the best interest of the owner, he should charge $1400 a month and fill 112 apartments with maximized revenue of $156,800. Anything more or less than that, he will make less money.

300*200=60,000

1350*116=156,600
1375*114=156,750
1400*112=156,800 <--
1425*110=156,750
1450*108=156,600

I wrote an article in my blog yesterday. I haven't forgotten about it!

And it's difficult to advertise my blog when there are so few opportunities to do so. I've been trying to create a dynamic signature image reflecting the latest entries in my blog, so people can see and click on them directly. But that has turned out to be a bit of a pain in the ass.

1) Did you study for your test? Do you pay attention in class?
2) Well, let's put it this way. Once you get out of HS and go to college, everything is different.
3) I don't think any of us will.

Which appeared first the chicken or the egg?
The egg. The mother of the chicken, the "proto-chicken," would have laid the egg that created the first chicken. The "proto-chicken," however, was not a chicken. Everything has to be born.

Besides, eggs have long existed before chickens anyway (i.e., dinosaur eggs).

Well, don't worry. You've got a long life ahead of you. Concentrate on your schoolwork (it may not be "popular" in HS, but in college, "stupidity" is no longer valued) and be confident in yourself.

Most people I know fretted about popularity through HS, only to go on to college wondering why they weren't themselves more. At least here, most of the "popular kids" grow up to be colossal embarrassments.

So, in short: take your schoolwork seriously.

No. It's coincidence, if he's correct. There have been many years where he's wrong.

I never wrote one. I got so mired in postmodernism, which states that "everything has been done before" that I couldn't get myself to write anything. I wanted to write something original, and Emerson College was not equipped to be a research school. Instead, I ended up making a 27 minute film.

Here's the closest you'll find to a thesis:

http://altweb.emerson.edu/courses/Sp...s/dystopia.pdf

I was going to expand upon this topic.
