User: describe Wangari Maathai’s Green Belt Movement.

Weegy: The Green Belt Movement (GBM) was founded by Professor Wangari Maathai in 1977 under the auspices of the National Council of Women of Kenya (NCWK) to respond to the needs of rural Kenyan women who reported that their streams were drying up, [ their food supply was less secure, and they had to walk further and further to get firewood for fuel and fencing. GBM encouraged the women to work together to grow seedlings and plant trees to bind the soil, store rainwater, provide food and firewood, and receive a small monetary token for their work. Shortly after beginning this work, Professor Maathai saw that behind the everyday hardships of the poor—environmental degradation, deforestation, and food insecurity—were deeper issues of disempowerment, disenfranchisement, and a loss of the traditional values that had previously enabled communities to protect their environment, work together for mutual benefit, and to do both selflessly and honestly. The Green Belt Movement instituted seminars in civic and environmental education, now called Community Empowerment and Education seminars (CEE), to encourage individuals to examine why they lacked agency to change their political, economic, and environmental circumstances. Participants began to understand that for years they had been placing their trust in leaders who had betrayed them and that they were sabotaging their lives by not working for the common good and failing to use their natural resources wisely. Consequently, the Green Belt Movement began to advocate for greater democratic space and more accountability from national leaders. It fought against land grabbing and the encroachment of agriculture into the forests. It contested the placement of a tower block in Uhuru Park in downtown Nairobi and joined others to call for the release of political prisoners. ]

True or false. If all the coefficients a1, a2, …, an in the objective function P = a1x1 + a2x2 + … + anxn are nonpositive, then the only solution of the problem is x1 = x2 = … = xn and P = 0.
Weegy: Try here for some help : [ ] User: True or false. The pivot column of a simplex tableau identifies the variable whose value is to be decreased in order to increase the value of the objective function (or at least keep it unchanged). Weegy: True (More)

Why is it that at any iteration of the simplex procedure, if it is not possible to compute the ratios or the ratios are negative, then one can conclude that the linear programming problem has no solution.
Weegy: It can be shown that for a linear program in standard form, [ if the objective function has a minimum value on the feasible region then it has this value on (at least) one of the extreme points.[13] This in itself reduces the problem to a finite computation since there are finite number of extreme points, but the number of extreme points is unmanageably large for all but the smallest linear programs.[14] It can also be shown that if an extreme point is not a minimum point of the objective function then there is an edge containing the point so that the objective function is strictly decreasing on the edge moving away from the point.[15] If the edge is finite then the edge connects to another extreme point where the objective function has a smaller value, otherwise the objective function is unbounded below on the edge and the linear program has no solution. The simplex algorithm applies this insight by walking along edges of the polytope to extreme points with lower and lower objective values. This continues until the minimum value is reached or an unbounded edge is visited, concluding that the problem has no solution. The algorithm always terminates because the number of vertices in the polytope is finite; moreover since we jump between vertices always in the same direction (that of the objective function), we hope that the number of vertices visited will be small. ] (More)
