in using traps or snares to catch a coyote?
Please rewrite the problem statement for each stakeholder resulting from too many sea lions, the noxious smell, and feces/pollution. None of your problem statements address the bad smell, this was the root of the problem.

Think about earthquake preparation. You have probably been bombarded with information from all sorts of government entities
A. Which scenario should someone in San Diego be more concerned about, a magnitude 8.1 on the stretch of the San Andreas Fault from the Salton Sea to San Bernardino, Wrightwood and Palmdale, or a magnitude 7.1 on the offshore portion of the Rose Canyon / Newport-Inglewood Fault (Dana Point to LaJolla)? Explain your answer.
B. What steps should you take to lessen the effects of an earthquake to you and your loved ones? Remember, you will be responsible for taking care of yourself for three days with no power, no cell service and streets impassible. Think about your furniture, your food and water supplies, medications, etc.
C. Just for fun, think about the worst place(s) to be when a big earthquake strikes. (I know that after the Northridge quake in 1994, I neither wanted to be on top of an overpass, nor stopped under one!)
What is a water footprint? You can show it on a graph or table. What food-consumption patterns or direct water-use habits explain your water footprint? Note: Your income is used to estimate your water footprint from the use of industrial goods. This is not a very exact estimate. Choose a couple of water-intensive foods that you consume and indicate in which countries or regions they are produced. Are these countries or regions water-stressed? Do you think your diet is relevant to water availability in those places? Explain.
We discussed many energy options in this module and the previous module. Taking into account all the energy options we learned about in this course, please discuss the following:
The net power of a combined gas-steam power plant is 450 MW. The pressure ratio of the gas turbine cycle is 14, the air enters the compressor at a temperature of 300 K and the turbine at a temperature of 1400 K. Combustion end gases coming out of the gas turbine produce steam at a waste heat boiler at 8 MPa pressure and 400 degrees Celsius temperature and exit the boiler at 460 K temperature. The steam cycle has an open feed water heater operating at 0.6 MPa pressure, the condenser pressure is 20kPa. Recognizing that all compression and expansion are isentropic;
The ratio of mass flow of air to mass flow of steam,
In the combustion chamber, the air is given to the air in unit time,
calculate the thermal efficiency of the combined cycle.
