Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--TOC Day 6

Post by rjaguar3 » Fri Sep 14, 2018 9:50 pm

Here comes the last day of the TOC.

Please get your responses in by Monday. I will be calculating the final results and having the medal ceremony on Tuesday morning. Also, if you haven't already done so, please vote for the winner of this year's Paucle Memorial Award for Outstanding Writing.

Good luck.

ORGANIZATIONS

2: Since 2010, the Boy Scouts have introduced these for Chess, Game Design, and Robotics.

4: This prestigious academic honor society was founded at the College of William & Mary in 1776.

6: Fr. Michael J. McGivney founded this fraternity in 1882 to provide financial support for families of deceased Catholic members.

8: Founded in 1976, this non-profit describes its mission as "bring[ing] people together to build homes, communities and hope."

10: This organization with over 357,000 members and 16,600 clubs annually awards the World Champion of Public Speaking prize.

ECONOMICS

3: The structural form of this phenomenon occurs when the skills of the labor force mismatch skills required by job openings.

6: If everyone's income rises, prices of normal goods will likely rise because the income effect shifts this microeconomic curve to the right.

9: Portfolio theory analyzes various portfolios' tradeoffs between these two quantities.

12: If you want guaranteed dividends and priority over common stockholders, this class of stock should be your choice.

15: In this government policy, abbreviated QE, the government stimulates the economy by buying debt held by banks to allow them to lend more.
