Forecast of Jobs in the Bay Area – 2010-2040 • The nine-county San Francisco Bay Area is projected to add 1.1 million jobs, 2.1 million people and 660,000 homes, for a total of 4.5 million jobs, 9.3 million people and 3.4 million homes. • Strong job growth is expected in the professional services, health and education, and leisure and hospitality sectors. High-skill, high-tech service and manufacturing sector continues to be the drivers of job growth in the Bay Area. Higher-income residents requires services (retail, nursing and child care, education, fire, and police, etc.) so lowmiddle-income jobs will be retained and created. • The existing transit network and connecting homes and jobs, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Alameda counties account for the majority of housing growth (77percent) and job growth (76 percent). Albany is project to grow 1,400, Berkeley 22,210, and Oakland 85,240 jobs in the next 30 years. • The Bay Area’s three regional centers—San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland—will accommodate 42 percent of housing growth and 38 percent of total job growth by 2040.

30 IRRELEVANT INFORMATION *EXAMPLES of RED HERRING:  Past students have brought up crime shows, mysteries, and even some horror movies that use the Red Herring as a literary device to divert readers’/viewers’ attention away from the real killer:   They set up one character to be the criminal and then (surprise!) it turns out to be someone else. A Pup Named Scooby-Doo even had a character called Red Herring because of this:

Summary of the spatial extent of summer DO in Narragansett Bay Low DO events occur predominately in July and August with June and September transitional. Low DO events are episodic, often close to neap tides, and last from days to weeks. Low DO events cover much of the Providence River, the upper Bay, Greenwich Bay, and extend into the West Passage The spatial pattern of low DO is systematic and exhibits three coherent groups over much of the Bay. The correlation of bottom DO and buoy data can be used to estimate the spatial extent of low DO in Narragansett Bay.

Fuselage Guidelines 16.5 Payload 16.5.1 Payload and Payload Support The payload must consist of a support assembly and plates. 21. CARGO BAY/MINIMUM CARGO VOLUME Regular Class aircraft shall be capable of carrying and fully enclosing a rectangular block measuring 6 inches by 5 inches by 4 inches. During technical inspection, compliance with this rule shall be tested by inserting a block with these dimensions into the aircraft. This block must be easily inserted and removed without application of excess force during insertion or extraction, and the aircraft must be structurally airworthy with the block installed. When the aircraft is ready to fly, the bay must be fully enclosed. The cargo bay must be shown clearly in the design plans, with dimensions included. Note: The block does not guarantee enough area for your required weight. 21.1 Undersized Cargo Bay – Penalty Planes that are unable to fit the 6 inches by 5 inches by 4 inches block into their cargo bay will not be eligible to fly. 22. REQUIRED ENGINE Regular Class aircraft must be powered by a single, unmodified O.S. .61FX with E4010 Muffler. No muffler extensions or headers that fit between the engine cylinder and the muffler may be used. Muffler baffles must be installed, and must be unmodified from the factory installed configuration. No fuel pumps are allowed. While the engine may not be modified from its stock configuration, two specific components may be installed on the engine for convenience and/or safety purposes: · Remote needle valves, including needle valves that may be adjusted in flight are allowed. · Tubes that redirect the exhaust flow may be affixed to the exhaust pipe. Note: engine tear-down and inspection may be performed by the competition officials

ECON OM IC S IN PRACTICE Cell Phones Increase Profits for Fishermen in India Kerala is a poor state in a region of India, where the fishing industry is a major part of the local economy. Beginning in 1997 and continuing for the next several years, mobile phone service was introduced to this region of India, virtually eliminating waste that had averaged 5 to 8 percent of the fishermen’s total catch. Fish prices across the various villages along the fishing market route were closer to each other than they were before. Fishermen’s profits rose on average by 8 percent, while the average price of fish fell by 4 percent. In fact, cell phones are improving the way markets in less-developed countries work by providing price and quantity information so that both producers and consumers can make better economic decisions.

Ten Milestones to watch for 1. 2. 3. 4. Incorporation of changing ocean conditions into fishery models/science Shift from species-based to ecosystem-based fishery management Fishing restrictions based on indicators of risk, not conventional fishery science Adjustments in state fishery management to account for shifts in fisheries among MidAtlantic states…and into and out of the region 5. Modifications in the structure of federal and state fishery management institutions in the Mid-Atlantic region to reflect new fishery/ocean realities 6. Increasing joint government/fishing industry fish stock assessments 7. Increased availability and use of real time ocean conditions by fishermen. 8. Strategies adopted to prevent legal and political challenges based on scientific uncertainty from derailing necessary fishing restrictions 9. More balanced responses to already financially stressed commercial fishermen, growing numbers of recreational anglers, and increasingly influential environmental NGOs. 10.Consolidation of commercial fishing as a result of increased steaming and searching time, gentrification of ports, need to use modern technology, shifts in location of buyers, etc.

Capture-ReCapture Formula Fishing example: 5 out of 25 = 20 out of Total C = # from both fishing tries (e.g. 5) A = # from first fishing try (e.g. 20) B = # from second fishing try (e.g. 25) So, C out of B = A out of Total C/B = A/Total Total = A*B/C 6/19/2007 SE 652- 2007_06_19_Overview_Inspections.ppt 19
