At Wandering Travel, we plan tours with flexibility in mind because bikers pace may vary from one day to the nextand other bikers pace may


vary from yours. So each day you get to decide what and how much you want to do.

Travelers who prefer a slower pace can easily dial back the physical activity. Need a lift over a hill? Or are you done for the day? No problem we are there to support you regardless of the route you have taken. If the trip seems too challenging or perhaps you are traveling with a stronger rider, rent an e-bike and get a boost all day long.

Our Europe tours include England, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Norway and Switzerland. Stay closer to home with trips to the Canadian Rockies or Nova Scotia. We even have a two country tour in Vermont and Quebec.

Families find touring in the US provides a great learning experience for children by touring Alaska, California, Florida, Hawaii, New Mexico or Utah and Arizona.


Bikes

Wandering Travel proudly uses custom built titanium bikes for all our tours. Nine Cycle Inc. designs and builds all the bikes we use on our tours.

Titanium Road Bike

Custom-built titanium bikes are used on all our tours we offer different models for varied terrain. Weighing in at two pounds less than their predecessor, our updated road bikes feature a newly designed titanium frame that is lighter and more responsive than ever. Our bikes include triple chaining, an ergonomic saddle, tires suited to the terrain and an adjustable handlebar stem to dial in your ideal ride position. Flat pedals or toe cages with straps are available. You can also bring your own pedals. This bike is available with upright handlebars or with dropped handlebars.

Titanium Mountain Bike


We use titanium mountain bikes that are designed for more comfortable riding on trips where routes include some dirt and rougher paved roads. They are used on biking trips in Argentina, China and Thailand and on multisport trips in Costa Rica, Dolomites, Ecuador & Galápagos, Iceland, Peru and South Africa. Our alternate mountain bike with slick tires and rigid fork is used on biking trips in India and Myanmar, and on multisport trips in Panama.

Custom Kid‟s Bike

Our custom kid‟s bikes are a perfect choice for the younger set. While the wheels might be smaller, the performance is big. On all Wandering Travel tours, you‟ll find 20″ and 24″ bicycles.


Tandem

Tandem bikes are suggested for riders with some tandem experience and on trips with flatter terrain. Due to the tandem‟s size, frequent racking is not realistic, so there may be fewer opportunities to hop in the van. Parents experienced in riding a tandem may choose the tandem to ride with one of your kids.

E-Bike

eBikes lets you experience the thrill of exploring on two wheels while providing a boost when you want it. Our eBikes have an intuitive battery-operated “pedal assist system,” giving you power assistance when you want it. Although you still need to pedal, the system provides an additional boost of power to your pedal stroke. When you need to push a bit more on the hills, you get more assistance. When riding on the flats, the system can respond with less power, allowing you to ride your bike and enjoy your day. It‟s completely silent so you won‟t miss out on any of the sounds around you.


Contact Us

Now that you have a brief understanding of our tours itâ€&#x;s time to make a call. Contact our team of Travel Planners by calling 480-888-8888.

Tips to Prepare

People get the most enjoyment out of their active adventure if they are reasonably fit. We suggest running, hiking, swimming or other aerobic activity for at least 20 minutes, three times a week, to help you get and stay in shape. For biking tours, the best training is to get out and ride, choose route with hills and flats. It is best to do several hours at a time on consecutive days. The key is to just ride and want to do it again the next day. Once you reserve a tour with us, weâ€&#x;ll send you specific training tips for that specific tour. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------BIS 221T Week 2 Practice Creating Professional Letters FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.bis221mentor.com

BIS 221T Week 2 Practice Creating Professional Letters

This assignment has a total of 100 points.


Practice problems are designed to help you apply what you have learned. It may be a good idea to complete the assignment on your own without help to see where you might need the most practice. Make only those changes that are specified in these directions. The Atlas Grader depends on existing text to identify portions of the document for grading.

Writing a Business Letter

Working with a template can facilitate the creation of letters and forms.? However, in many instances, the template does not exactly fit the need, so that you will often have to make adjustments to the template as you will see during this exercise. You will also notice that the fields in the template are designed such that “field� characteristic disappears after it is edited and the text becomes normal text.? In other words, the fields are added to facilitate the initial entry of data, but then drop out of the picture so as not to be a distraction for later editing. The date field, is left as a field, however, so that it can be automatically updated.


Task # Points Task Description

1 5 Notice that there are two fields called [Type the sender name] in the letter, one in the return address block at the top of the page and one in the signature line at the bottom. The template is built so that the one in the signature line captures the information that is typed in the address block. For this task, type your name in [Type the sender name] in the address block at the top of the page. Ensure that your name is reflected in the same field in the signature line. If it is not, type your name there also. (Note: The relationship between the two fields is temporary and is removed on the first entry. Hence, if you have experimented with the template, the connection between the two fields may have been removed.)

10

Add the QuickStove letter head image to the page header.

3 10 Add the text “Always ready in an Emergency!� without the quotes right aligned in the page footer. Close the header/footer edit function.


4 12 Replace the sample text in the template with the letter content that is saved in the LetterContent file you downloaded and saved to your computer.

5 8 Use the ABC Spelling & Grammar option on the Review ribbon to correct any misspellings. Also accept the correct spelling of “QuickStove” for the entire document.

6 8 Enter the current date. The existing placeholder for [Pick the date] could be used, however, it displays the date in the wrong format so we will not use it.? In order to format the date correctly, delete the [Pick the date] field completely. Leave the cursor in that same location and insert the date using the Date and Time icon from the Insert Ribbon.? Choose the format of MonthNamedd, yyyy.? This will insert a new date field in the desired format that can then be updated automatically. Use the dialog box to select the format, be sure that the “Update Automatically” check box is checked. (Note: To delete a field, you must press either the delete key or backspace key two times.? The first time deletes the content, the second deletes the field itself.)

7 9 Indent the first line of each paragraph to .5 on the ruler by placing the cursor in the paragraph, then moving the indent marker. (Note: Be sure you use the correct marker. It is the Indent First Line marker.)


8 10 Delete your name from the return address block at the top of the page. Also delete the [Type the sender company name] placeholder from the top of the letter.? Enter into the [Type the sender company address] placeholder the address for QuickStove at the top of the document: 1149 W Center St. ? Orem, UT 84057 on two lines. Notice that this paragraph has extra lines after the paragraph.? Enter 2 more blank lines after the address, so that there is white space equal to approximately 4 blank lines.

9 9 Select the date and address lines and add a left tab stop at the 4.5 inch mark on the ruler. Then unselect these two lines and press tab in front of each line to move the text to the new tab stop. (Note: Do not use Indent, use Tabstop.)

Executive Summary

QuickStoveâ€&#x;s Emergency Cube Stove and Emergency Cook Kit are two options for being prepared for an emergency. The company that wants everyone to be prepared for any emergency. Having a plan before an emergency gives people a better chance of survival. This report will provide a short overview of the types of natural disaster emergencies that can occur in the United States.

Earthquakes, flood, tornados, hurricanes and winter snow are just a few of the types of disasters Americans can face. Knowing what to do before, during and after is a critical part of being prepared.

This report is based on information from the www.ready.gov web site and en.wikipedia.org.

Introduction


A disasteris defined as a serious disruption of the functioning of a community or a society. The disaster can involve widespread human, material, economic or environmental losses and impacts. The disaster may exceed the ability of the affected community or society to cope using its own resources.

Emergency preparedness is not only for people living in California, or the Midwest or the Gulf Coast. Other communities may be impacted by several types of hazards during a lifetime. Americans also travel more than ever before to areas with different hazard risks than they have at home.

Large natural disasters in the United States make the news and may impact thousands of people. The table below show the large disasters in the years 2010 – 2015.

Types of Natural Disasters


Earth Quake

Earthquakes also known as a quake, tremor or temblor result from the sudden release of energy in the Earth‟s crust that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes can be violent enough to destroy major buildings and kill thousands of people. The severity of the shaking can range from barely felt to violent enough to toss people around. In its most general sense, the word earthquake is used to describe any seismic event, whether natural or caused by humans that generates seismic waves. Earthquakes are caused mostly by rupture of geological faults, but also by other events such as volcanic activity, landslides, mine blasts, and nuclear tests. An earthquake‟s point of initial rupture is called its focus or hypocenter. The epicenter is the point at ground level directly above the hypocenter.

At the Earth‟s surface, earthquakes manifest themselves by shaking and sometimes displacement of the ground. When the epicenter of a large earthquake is located offshore, the seabed may be displaced sufficiently to cause a tsunami. Earthquakes can also trigger landslides, and occasionally volcanic activity.

Flood


A flood is an overflow of water that submerges land which is usually dry.Flooding may occur as an overflow of water from water bodies, such as a river or lake, in which the water overtops or breaks levees, resulting in some of that water escaping its usual boundaries, or it may occur due to an accumulation of rainwater on saturated ground.

Floods can occur in rivers when the flow rate exceeds the capacity of the river channel, particularly at bends or meanders in the waterway. Floods often cause damage to homes and businesses if they are in the natural flood plains of rivers. While riverine flood damage can be eliminated by moving away from rivers and other bodies of water, people have traditionally lived and worked by rivers because the land is usually flat and fertile and because rivers provide easy travel and access to commerce and industry.

Some floods develop slowly, while others such as flash floods, can develop in just a few minutes and without visible signs of rain. Additionally, floods can be local, impacting a neighborhood or community, or very large, affecting entire river basins.


Urban flooding is the inundation of land or property in a built environment, particularly in more densely populated areas, caused by rainfall overwhelming the capacity of drainage systems, such as storm sewers. Although sometimes triggered by events such as flash flooding or snowmelt, urban flooding is a condition, characterized by its repetitive and systemic impacts on communities that can happen regardless of whether or not affected communities are located within designated floodplains or near any body of water.

Tornado

A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud. Tornadoes come in many shapes and sizes, but they are typically in the form of a visible condensation funnel, whose narrow end touches the earth and is often encircled by a cloud of debris and dust.


Tornadoes have been observed on every continent except Antarctica. However, the vast majority of tornadoes occur in the Tornado Alley region of the United States, although they can occur nearly anywhere in North America. They also occasionally occur in south-central and eastern Asia, northern and east-central South America, Southern Africa, northwestern and southeast Europe, western and southeastern Australia, and New Zealand.

Hurricane

Tropical cyclones or Hurricanes are areas of relatively low pressure in the troposphere, with the largest pressure perturbations occurring at low altitudes near the surface. On Earth, the pressures recorded at the center of tropical cyclones are among the lowest ever observed at sea level.

Hurricanes typically form over large bodies of relatively warm water. They derive their energy through the evaporation of water from the ocean surface, which ultimately re-condenses into clouds and rain when moist air rises and cools to saturation. The strong rotating winds of a hurricane are a result of the conservation of angular momentum imparted by the Earthâ€&#x;s rotation as air flows inwards toward the axis of rotation.


In addition to strong winds and rain, hurricanes are capable of generating high waves, damaging storm surge, and tornadoes. They typically weaken rapidly over land where they are cut off from their primary energy source.

Snow

Snow is precipitation in the form of flakes of crystalline water ice that falls from clouds. Snow is composed of small ice particles making it a granular material. Snow has an open and therefore soft, white, and fluffy structure, unless subjected to external pressure. Snowflakes come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Types that fall in the form of a ball due to melting and refreezing, rather than a flake, are hail, ice pellets or snow grains.

Storms passing over warm water bodies can produce lake-effect snowfall downwind of the lake. Lake-effect snowfall can be heavy


locally. Snowfall amount and its related liquid equivalent precipitation amount are measured using a variety of different rain gauges.

Prepare for Natural Disasters

Being prepared for a natural disaster can save lives and property. Depending on your circumstances and the nature of the emergency, the first important decision is whether you stay where you are or evacuate. You should understand and plan for both possibilities.

Local authorities may or may not immediately be able to provide information on what is happening. If possible you should watch TV, listen to the radio or check the Internet often for information or official instructions as they become available.

Earth Quake


To prepare for an earthquake follow these guidelines:

Look around places where you spend time. Identify safe places such as under a sturdy piece of furniture or against an interior wall in your home, office or school so that when the shaking starts, you drop to the ground, cover your head and neck with your arms, and if a safer place is nearby, crawl to it and hold on.

To react quickly you must practice often how to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On!�. You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake.

Before an earthquake occurs, secure items that could fall and cause injuries (e.g., bookshelves, mirrors, light fixtures).

Store critical supplies (e.g., water, medication) and documents.

Plan how you will communicate with family members, including multiple methods by making a family emergency communication plan.

When choosing your home or business, check if the building is earthquake resistant per local building codes.


Flood

To prepare for a flood, you should:

Build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan.

Avoid building in a floodplain unless you elevate and reinforce your home.

Elevate the furnace, water heater and electric panel in your home if you live in an area that has a high flood risk.

Consider installing “check valves� to prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home.

If feasible, construct barriers to stop floodwater from entering the building and seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds.

Tornado


To begin preparing, you should:

Build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan.

Listen to NOAA Weather Radio or to commercial radio or television newscasts for the latest information. In any emergency, always listen to the instructions given by local emergency management officials.

Be alert to changing weather conditions. Look for approaching storms.

Look for the following danger signs:

Dark, often greenish sky

Large hail

A large, dark, low-lying cloud (particularly if rotating)


Loud roar, similar to a freight train.

If you see approaching storms or any of the danger signs, be prepared to take shelter immediately.

Hurricane

To prepare for a hurricane, you should take the following measures:

Build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan.

Know your surroundings.

Learn the elevation level of your property and whether the land is floodprone. This will help you know how your property will be affected when storm surge or tidal flooding are forecasted.

Identify levees and dams in your area and determine whether they pose a hazard to you.


Learn community hurricane evacuation routes and how to find higher ground. Determine where you would go and how you would get there if you needed to evacuate.

Make plans to secure your property:

Cover all of your homeâ€&#x;s windows. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8â€? exterior grade or marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install. Another year-round option would be installation of laminated glass with impact-resistant glazing. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking.

Install straps or additional clips to securely fasten your roof to the frame structure. This will reduce roof damage.

Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed so they are more wind resistant.

Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.

Reinforce your garage doors; if wind enters a garage it can cause dangerous and expensive structural damage.


Plan to bring in all outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else that is not tied down.

Determine how and where to secure your boat.

Install a generator for emergencies.

If in a high-rise building, when high winds are present, be prepared to take shelter on a lower floor because wind conditions increase with height, and in a small interior room without windows. When flooding may be occurring, be prepared to take shelter on a floor safely above the flooding and wave effects.

Consider building a safe room.

Snow

To prepare for a winter snow storm you should do the following:

Before winter approaches, add the following supplies to your emergency kit:


Rock salt or more environmentally safe products to melt ice on walkways. Visit the Environmental Protection Agency for a complete list of recommended products.

Sand to improve traction.

Snow shovels and other snow removal equipment.

Sufficient heating fuel. You may become isolated in your home and regular fuel sources may be cut off. Store a good supply of dry, seasoned wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove.

Adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm.

Make a Family Communications Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.

A NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts alerts and warnings directly from the NWS for all hazards. You may also sign up in advance to receive notifications from your local emergency services.


Download FEMAâ€&#x;s Be Smart. Know Your Alerts and Warnings for a summary of notifications at: www.ready.gov/prepare. Free smart phone apps, such as those available from FEMA and the American Red Cross, provide information about finding shelters, providing first aid, and seeking assistance for recovery.

Minimize travel. If travel is necessary, keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle.

Bring pets/companion animals inside during winter weather. Move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water.

Conclusion

This report is a quick guide to the types of natural disasters that can occur in the United Statesand how to prepare for them. Being prepared for the disaster is important to save lives and property. Quickstoveâ€&#x;s Emergency Cube Stove can be a valuable part of any emergency preparedness kit. When making your emergency plan consider how you may have to live for a period of time after the emergency passes. Being able to heat food and water are essential to getting life back to normal. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------BIS 221T Week 2 Practice Working with Tables FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.bis221mentor.com

You have decided to purchase a new car. You plan to take out a loan to pay for the car. The loan amount is $18,900. You will pay 6.5% interest and will pay off the car in 48 months. You are interested in calculating the total amount of money and the total amount of interest you will pay over the course of the loan. To help you with these calculations, you decide to construct an amortization table. An amortization table provides details about the payment, interest amount, principle amount, and loan balance for every month of the loan. Complete the tasks to complete the amortization table and the summary calculations below.


Calculate the payment amount for the loan in cell C15. Reference the cells containing the appropriate loan information as the arguments for the function that you use. (Notice that “Payment� on the table fills with the payment amount in cell C15.)

Amortization!C15: =PMT(C13/C12,C12,C11,0,)

6 / 9 (66.7%)

Feedback:

[-3] The value in cell C15 is not correct


Calculate the interest amount for period 1 in cell D20 by multiplying balance in period 0 (cell F19) by the loan interest rate (cell C13) divided by 12 (to create a montly interest rate). This formula is reusable. The interest for a given period is always the monthly interest rate times the balance from the previous period.

Amortization!D20: =F19*C13/12

6 / 6 (100.0%)

Copy the interest amount calculation down to complete the “Interest� column of the amortization table.

0 / 3 (0.0%)

Feedback:


[-3] The interest values in column D are not correct

Calculate the principle amount for period 1 in cell E20. The principle amount is the difference between the payment amount (cell C20) and the interest amount (cell D20) for period 1. Construct your formula in such a way that it can be reused to complete the interest column of the amortization table.

Amortization!E20: =C20-D20

6 / 6 (100.0%)


Copy the principle amount calculation down to complete the “Principle” column of the amortization table.

3 / 3 (100.0%)

Calculate the balance for period 1 in cell F20. The balance is the difference between the balance for period 0 (cell F19) and the principle amount for period 1 (cell E20). This formula is reusable. The balance is always calculated as the difference between the balance from the previous period and the principle amount for the current period.

Amortization!F20: =F19-E20

6 / 6 (100.0%)

Copy the balance amount calculation down to complete the “Balance” column of the amortization table.


3 / 3 (100.0%)

Calculate the “Total Amount Paid� in cell G12 by multiplying the payment amount (cell C15) by the term of the loan (cell C12).

Amortization!G12: =C15*C12

6 / 6 (100.0%)

Calculate the total interest paid in cell G13. The total interest paid is the sum of all interest paid on the amortization table.

Amortization!G13: =SUM(D20:D67)


9 / 9 (100.0%)

You can check to see if the total interest calculation from the amortization table is correct. The total interest paid is also equal to the difference between the Total Amount Paid� over the course of the loan and the original loan amount. Insert a formula into cell G14 to check the result of the SUM calculation you just made in cell G13. This formula should calculate the difference between the total amount paid and the original loan amount (notice the negative sign associated with the original loan amount).

0 / 6 (0.0%)

Feedback:


[-3] The value for the SUM check calculation in cell G14 is incorrect

[-3] The formula for the SUM check calculation in cell G13 is incorrect

Assume you have made the first 36 payments on your loan. You are interested in trading the car in for another new car. You believe that you can sell your car for $4000. Will this cover the balance remaining on the car in period 36? Answer either “Yes” or “No” in cell G15.

right. Insert your formulas (or responses) in column I for each task. Are small market teams at a disadvantage? Use the COUNT function to calculate the number of MLB teams in 1990 (range G10:G39). Statistical Functions!I10: =COUNT(G10:G39)

Creating a Presentation


Quickstove would like to produce a flyer advertising their products. Your assignment is to build the presentation according to the following specifications.

Task # Points Task Description

1 10 Go to the third slide, which has the title “Products� and enter the following lines as three separate bullet points.

Cube Stove

Fire Starters/Fuel Disk


Solar Key Chain Flashlight

2 5 Go to slide 4, which has the title “Cube Stove”, and remove the word “two” that appears in the last bullet to remove the redundancy of “2 two”

3 10 Go to the slide which has the title “Pricing” (currently slide 5) and split the first bullet point text into two lines. Split immediately before the “45% markup….” so that it becomes a new bullet line.

4 9 There are spelling errors in this presentation. Use the Spelling check option to correct the misspellings. Ignore any words that are spelled correctly.

5 19 Insert a new “Title and Content” slide after the slide entitled “Pricing” (currently slide 5) with the following text.

Title of Slide: Competition


Bullet 1: Lighter weight stoves

Bullet 2: Larger/heavier stoves

Bullet 3: One fuel requirement

Bullet 4: High risk fuel

6 15 Insert a new “Title and Content” slide after the slide entitled “Cube Stove” (currently slide 4) with the content below.


Title of Slide: Support Products

Bullet 1: Fuel disks – single and multipack options

Bullet 2: Solar flashlight – good promotion item

7 12 Edit the color of the bulleted text on slides entitled “Cube Stove” and the two newly added slides (“Support Products” and “Competition”) to “Red, Accent 3, Darker 25%” to match the other slides.

8 10 Add a new Title slide to the end of the presentation. This slide should contain contact information for the presenter. Type “For more information call” as the slide title and “888-888-9999” as the subtitle.


9 10 The default colors on the last slide make the text hard to read. Change the title color to “White, Background 1, Darker 5%” and the sub title color to “Light Yellow, Background 2, Darker 25%”.

changes that are specified in these directions. The Atlas Grader depends on existing text to identify portions of the document for grading.

Enhancing a presentation

Quickstove would like to produce a presentation advertising their products. Your assignment is to build the presentation according to the following specifications.

Task # Points Task Description


1 10 Add the “Largefireboxlogo” to the Title Layout of the Slide Master so that it appears on both slide 1 and 8. Position the image so that it is below the subheading but still inside the white rectangle on each slide.

2 10 Edit the Title and Content Layout slide master to display the level 1 and level 2 bullets as “Filled Square Bullets” instead of the default circle.

3 10 Add the “Fireboxlogo” on top of the footer of the Title and Content slide master. When you are done close the Master View.

4 10 You want the eight fuel types to transition onto slide 3 one at a time but without having to click each individually. To do this, select the eight fuel types and click “Fly In” from the Animations ribbon. Open the Animation Pane and select the eight items in the pane. Click the drop down arrow to the right of Charcoal Briquettes and select “Start After Previous”.

5 10 Add the “Swivel” entrance animation to the image on slide 4, entitled “Gen2.5 Folding Firebox (continued)”

6 10 Add a “Bold Reveal” animation to start after the previous animation with a 2 second delay to each bullet on slide 5, entitled “Engineered and Made in the USA”


7 10 Apply the “Bounce” entrance animation effect to the statement on slide 7. Set the animation to start as soon as the slide Title displays.

8 10 For slide 2 (entitled “New Gen2.5 Folding Firebox Nano Ultralight Stove”) we want it to be a building slide with the images and their names appearing with mouse clicks. On the first mouse click make the image on the left (the G2 Folding Firebox) appear. Its name should appear concurrently. On the second mouse click display the “Now” text. On the third mouse click make the image on the right (the G2.5 Folding Firebox) appear. Its name should appear concurrently. Use the “Appear” animation effect on all the objects.

9 10 On slide 6 add a “Custom Path” with a random path on the “We‟ll Make It Right” object. To do this, select the object; select the “Custom Path” animation and then pick a starting position on the slide. Drag your mouse around the slide until you have a path that takes you back to the original object‟s position. To end the path, press the “Esc” key.

10 10 Without a delay the custom path animation runs too quickly. To slow down the animation set the duration to 12 seconds.

11 0 Run the Slide show to check all the changes to the master and make sure the animations display correctly. When your slide show


works correctly save the presentation. Navigate to the “Assignment� menu and click on the submit button to see how you did.

Make only those changes that are specified in these directions. The Atlas Grader depends on existing text to identify portions of the document for grading.


Editing a presentation

Quickstove would like to produce a presentation advertising their products. Your assignment is to build the presentation according to the following specifications.

Task # Points Task Description

1 6 Use the find and replace option to change every occurrence of Quick Stove with the correct spelling QuickStove.


2 5 Put the “Up Right Stove” and “Upside Down Stove” slides in the same order the positions appear in other advertising with “Upright Stove” before the “Upside down Stove”. To do this, select slide 5 (“Upright Stove”) thumbnail and drag and drop it before slide 4 (“Upside down Stove”).

3 15 Insert a Comparison slide as slide 3 in the presentation that compare the “QUICKSTOVE CUBE STOVE” to the “ECOFUEL FOLD FLAT CAMP STOVE”. Do a side-by-side comparison using the information below to enter the content of the slide. Main Title of the slide should be: “Compare with our Competition” The subtitle the left column should be “QUICKSTOVE CUBE STOVE” and the subtitle for the right column should be “ECOFUEL FOLD FLAT CAMP STOVE” There are three items in each column that are compared.

QUICKSTOVE CUBE STOVE STOVE

Weight – less than 1 pound

ECOFUEL FOLD FLAT CAMP

Weight – 1.5 pounds

Uses multiple fuels – Fuel disk, wood, Sterno, charcoal, tablets Requires OrganicaBioFire Safety Fuel – sold separately

Cost – with 2 fuel disks $24.99

Cost – Stove only $40.00


4 6 On the slide entitled “Cube Stove Features” (slide 4 after inserting a new slide), use the Change Case option to make the first letter of each line start with a capital letter. (Sentence case for all lines on the slide.)

5 8 The cooking types (last four lines, which describe types of cooking) on this slide (“Cube Stove Features”) will be more dramatic if they were displayed with a bullet and indented. To do this, select the four cooking types, select the bullet drop down and select “Filled Square Bullets”. With the statements still highlighted click “Increase List Level” once from the Paragraphs section of the Home ribbon to indent the statements one stop. When you increase the indent level, PowerPoint automatically decreases the font size. In this instance, return the font size to its previous value of 20 points for all four line items.

6 8 After reviewing slides 7 (“Closed Stove”) and 8 (“Remove Plate”) you decide they will be better as one slide. To do this, first create a new slide. Then add all the information from slide 7 and slide 8 as line items in the content placeholder of the new slide. This should give you five lines items on the new slide. Then delete the old slides 7 and 8.

7 5 Add the title “Other Positions” to the new slide that you just created without the quotes in the title placeholder.


8 5 Edit the first statement so that there is a dash and the text “For Grilling” is displayed after the “Closed Stove” text, so that it reads “Closed Stove – For Grilling” all as a single line item.

9 18 Use the Format Painter option to add the filled square bullets again on slides 5, 6 and 7 to identify the types of fuel recommended for each cooking position. Use the format that you set for task 5 on the slide entitled “Cube Stove Features”. (Format Painter should bring over the bullets, the indentation, and the font size of 20. Double check to make sure all three features are set correctly.) In other words, bulleted and indented attributes should be painted to the following lines. Because your mouse is showing the paintbrush, it is better to use the page down or arrow keys to move from slide to slide.

On Slide 5 (“Upright Stove”): Wood, Sterno, Gel, Tablet

On Slide 6 (“Upside Down Stove”): Wood, Sterno, Gel, Tablet

On Slide 7 (“Other Positions”): Wood, Charcoal

Apply the “Fade” Transition to slides 2 through 7.

12 8 Use the up arrow on the duration option to change it to 02:00 to slow down the transition. Then click Apply to All. (Note: You should quickly go through all the slides to make sure that the Apply to All worked correctly. You can review the timings and transitions both by previewing the presentation, and by changing the view to Slide Sorter and opening the Transitions Ribbon. In Slide Sorter view, click on each slide to view its transition. If any is wrong, you can fix it. )

13 4 Apply the “Random Bars” Transition to slide 1 (the title slide). Change the transition duration to 2.0 to be consistent with the rest of the presenation transitions.
