1) Construct a music industry value-chain from the perspective of the major record labels prior to
the launch of digital music, music sharing (Napster) websites and MP3 players (no sentences
required – you can simply list value-chain members in the order they appear – from raw material
through to end customer).
2) Based on your value-chain above and from the perspective of the major Record Labels (the
equivalent of book publishers in the music industry)
a. Conduct a Porters-5-Forces Analysis of the Music Industry prior to the launch of digital
music, music sharing websites (Napster) and MP3 players (HINT: Keep in mind that you
may have to consider that there are different categories of suppliers and buyers to
address in your analysis similar to the Harlequin Enterprise case when we looked at both
Readers and Retailers)
b. For each of the 5-factors above, identify whether the factor has a low, medium or high
impact on the Industry’s attractiveness to the major recording labels.
c. From your analysis above, decide whether you believe this is an attractive industry to be
in if you are one of the five major record labels and why.
ejection of blood. When an individual participates in exercise and has a faster heart rate, the chambers must dilate (or stretch) to accommodate the returning volumes in order to meet the greater need for oxygen in the exercising muscles. As the heart returns to normal resting rates, these dilated chambers return to their normal size. Chronic chamber dilation (or cardiomyopathy) can be detrimental to the function of the heart and result in decreased pumping, loss of forward flow as well as heart failure. Contractility of the actin and myosin fiber is an inherent property of cardiac muscle. But strength of contractility is important to overcome afterload. Afterload is defined as the force that is needed to overcome aortic pressure for cardiac ejection of stroke volume. Afterload is increased in the presence of sustained diastolic hypertension. Over a period of years this continual increase in the work of the heart will lead to hypertrophy of the ventricular muscle and not only will strength of contraction be lost but increased oxygen consumption will be detrimental to the myocardium and may result in angina or infarction. D. Which of the three layers of the heart did the tissue used to make your slide originate from? The slide was made from the myocardium or muscle tissue. Activity 2: The Pulmonary and Systemic Circuits Draw a diagram showing pulmonary and systemic circulation. Color the deoxygenated side blue and the oxygenated side red. Use a regular pencil to draw arrows to indicate blood flow. Questions: Trace the flow of blood through the pulmonary and systemic circuits. Begin in the right atrium and end in the superior/inferior vena cava. Be sure to list every vessel, heart chamber, and heart valve the blood flows through. Blood flow through the heart begins with the returning deoxygenated systemic bolus into the right atrium. Passively it flows through the low pressure atrioventricular tricuspid valve into the right ventricle. As pressures equalize, the tricuspid valve closes. In the right ventricle, this bolus is pressurized isometrically and then ejected through the low pressure semilunar pulmonic valve into the right and left pulmonary arteries. The bolus then travels through the pulmonary arteries into the pulmonary arterioles and capillaries until it is in single >GET ANSWER
