Update Calculator Annual Values

Description

Task
Go to The CSA Guide -2.4.2 Formula tables and values and get the vales for the next year (i,e #2), #3), #4) & #5) as described below).

Retrieve the file name annual_changes.txt into a text editor (notepad would suffice but beware that you must save the file as annual_changes.txt).
Add a new line using the year that is soon to be (eg if doing this in 2015 then they year would be 2016, assuming that this task is done prior to 1st January) and the values obtained ensuring that they are ordered as described.
Save the file as annual_changes.txt (the name of the file is critical) and have it replace the current annual_changes.txt file.
Check that the calculator can pick up the year that has been added and also run a scenario (the easiest scenario is to goto one of the "Night's care" boxes tab out (the other one should change to 365) and then click on calculate. You should see results appear.

Example of annual_changes.txt (as for 2015)
