Case 1
Question: Explain two activities that leaders at Camp Bow Wow perform daily, and identify which of the managerial roles discussed in the chapter figure prominently for each.
The two activities, which leaders at Camp Bow Wow perform daily, are such as taking care of dogs and answering phones.
After thoroughly watching the video, reading chapter one and also from my understanding of the chapter, I can point out the managerial roles that are connected to the video and the book. Candace, who happens to be the general manager at Camp Bow Wow, performs the interpersonal functions, which consist of figurehead and liaison. Candace way of playing those roles is that she have to keep the customers happy at all time and also making sure that the dogs are happy, safe and well-taken care. According to our textbook Liaison role defined as “ the interpersonal role managers play when they deal with people outside their units” (Williams, 2014, pp. 11). On the other hand, Camp Bow Wow owner Sue utilizes the decisional roles of entrepreneur and resource allocator. The owner acts upon decisional roles by hiring management team to help support and manage her business. For example, promoting Candice to general management has helped Sue in a lot of ways with her business. The owner also performs disturbance handler role where she mentions that when customers are having hard time with the company, as managers, they tend to do what they can to fix the issue and make their clients happy. According to our text book disturbance handler role defined as “the decisional role managers play when they respond to severe pressures and problems that demand immediate action” (Williams, 2014, pp.12).

The Physics of a Bow and Arrow

...The Physics of a Bow and Arrow A bow and arrow operates on certain principle of physics. I will be investigating what factors affect the accuracy of a bow and arrow. Figure 1 - The change in the shape of the bow as the archer draws it. Figure 1 - The change in the shape of the bow as the archer draws it. A bow is a basic machine called a “two-arm spring”. Energy is stored when the archer bends the bow. It may look like the string is being stretched, however, it is not stretched but the shape of the bow is changed. The stored energy is then transferred to the arrow in the form of kinetic energy. The greater the draw length, the greater the momentum and energy that the arrow gains. A longer draw length will influence your accuracy. You, as an individual, need to find the draw length that you are most comfortable with. With your own unique draw length you need to have an anchor point. This point is the place where your hand will be every time you shoot an arrow. This will greatly improve the accuracy of the shot. Figure 2 - Correct form to shoot an arrow Figure 2 - Correct form to shoot an arrow In archery your form is very important. If you do not have the correct form then you will not be able to shoot properly and you might hurt yourself. In Figure 2 (left) we can see the correct form when shooting an arrow. Old military snipers used a technique they called B.R.A.S. Breathe. If you are do not breathe then you will not be able to focus clearly on where you......

Archaeological Anthropology

...Archaeological Anthropology TOPIC: Human evolution and the bow & arrow Summary Archaeologists study the material remains left by our ancestors in order to interpret cultural variation and changes in the past, more over it focuses on how human evolution. Human beings construct niches by inventing ways of using their relationships with on another and with the physical environment to make a living. As an example, referring to the subsistence strategies, we may tell that it can be divided into 2 different subtopic, food collectors and food producers. And in this case bow and arrow belongs the category of the tools of foragers. The tools allowed hunters to shoot prey more accurate than with spear. Archeologist argues that the innovation is more than a technological revolutions; it had a social consequences. Conferring to the scientific paper, there are two main major theories of criteria for falsification. One is Social-coercion theory; it’s an explanation for the rise of social complexity from Stony Brook University biologists Paul Bingham and Joanne Souza states from the new article. The primary prediction is when local subsistence capacity permits; local introduction of the bow will rapidly be followed by increases in social scale and economic intensifications. Another theory is Warfare theory, and the primary prediction is the local introduction of elite bow will result in increased interpolity warfare, with increases in social complexity and economic intensification......

Ribbons and Bows

...Ribbons and Bows INTRODUCTION Carmen Diaz, with a ten thousand dollar loan from two of her cousins, and one thousand dollars that she invested in equity, was able to open a specialty store called Ribbons an’ Bows, Inc, which was located in Coconut Grove, Miami, Florida. Four months after opening the business, Carmen’s relatives requested a financial report, which was part of the original business arrangement. Within a short time, Carmen had expanded the business, purchased small equipment, paid wages to a part-time employee, and by all outward indicators, had been running a flourishing business. As Carmen gathered the necessary information to prepare financial statements, she started to scrutinize the transactions and was somewhat perplexed. Carmen realized that numbers were not adding up as she had anticipated. Additionally, it became questionable whether the business was operating successfully, at least when accounting principles were appropriately applied.  Statement of the Problem It was fortuitous for Carmen Diaz to have family who were supportive of her small business endeavor, thereby providing start-up funds and legal advice. Carmen’s endeavor can be recognized as a “microbusiness” operation; “microcredit”, microenterprise” and “microfinance” are terms that have been associated with microbusinesses (Datar, 2009). Clearly, Carmen would have benefitted from some professional entrepreneurial guidance that is widely available at no cost in the United States...

Bow and Arrow Parabola

...Trajectory of a Bow and Arrow Bows and arrows have a great deal of variance to them. From the type of bow you use, the material, the bowstring, the wind, and where you’re shooting from, many different things could happen. Cool guy is in an archery competition and he is about to take his first shot. Cool guy releases the arrow from a height of 3 feet and it hits its highest point (5 feet) when the arrow is 50 feet from where it was released. The target is 120 feet away and the center of the bulls eye is exactly 3 feet above the ground, and 4 inches in diameter. Assuming that Cool guy shoots a perfectly straight shot, will he hit a bulls eye? We need to use the vertex form of the equation y = a(x – h)^2 + k  To find the vertical height of the arrow as it approaches the target.  Since the arrow has a maximum height of 5feet when it has traveled 50 feet toward the target, we know that the vertex is at (50, 5).  Substituting this into the equation, we get: y = a(x – 50)^2 + 5 To find the stretching factor, a, we need to plug in a point other than the vertex.  Since the arrow was initially launched at a height of 3 feet, the parabola goes through the point (0,3).  Replacing x and y in the equation, we get: 3 = a(0 – 50)^2 + 5 3 = 2500a + 5 -2 = 2500a a = -0.0008 This gives a final equation of  y = -0.0008(x – 50)^2 + 5 We can find the height of the arrow when it hits the target by plugging in 120 feet in for x. y = -0.0008(120 – 50)^2 + 5 y = 4.888 feet The......

Bow-Wow Theory

...The origin of language in the human species has been the topic of scholarly discussions for several centuries. One linguistic theory concerning the origin of language is the "Natural-sound source theory", that hypothesizes that primitive language are imitations of the natural sounds which early human heard from around them. This is also called the "Bow-wow theory". Yet, some argue that the theory does not necessarily offers a scientific explanation of the origin of language, and it still remains controversial. The "Bow-wow theory" states that language began when our ancients imitated the animal sounds. For example, if an animal passed by a human and made a certain sound, the human would try to imitate the sound that which the animal did. In fact, all modern languages have some words which seems to echo naturally occurring sounds. In English for instance, there are onomatopoetic words like meow, hiss, buzz, roar and oink, which phonetically imitates the source of the sound that it describes. Nevertheless, it is somehow difficult to see how most of the soundless and abstract objects in the world could have been given names if language simply echoed natural sounds. The theory fail to explain the presence of abstract words, such as love, kindness, evil and etc., which leads the theory to contradict itself. Another counter argument against this theory is that relatively few words in any language are onomatopoeic, and they are not the same across all language. For example, a......

...Archery. A round wheeled compound made by Martin Archery, a Glenn StCharles' "Buckskin" During the years I carried that bow, both at the range and in the woods, I dreamed of something better... I finally went back down to NWA and spent my IRS refund on a Martin "Lynx" with all the upgrades, bells and whistles. Shot at the range regularly, and hunted with that bow for many years. Hanging around NWA, I was exposed to "Traditional Archery" Listening to stories from Glenn StCharles and others in the shop, hunting Elk with Joe StCharles, and other "Traditional" archers, I became immersed in the history of archery, especially its history in the U.S. I read every book I could get on the subject, the Thomson brothers, Ishii, Saxton Pope, Art Young, Chester Stevenson, Howard Hill, Roy Case, Kore Duryee, and others were my heroes. I set down the "training wheels" and began using recurves. I collected them, enjoying the craftsmanship evident in the individual bows. One of my hunting companions was Don "Bowdoc" Ward, who also had gone back to traditional after hunting with a compound, even restoring bows he found at garage sales, swap meets, etc.. I embraced the "Traditional" archery life, and involved my whole family. I have little fiberglass bows, a few wood longbows in 8#-18#, a 20# maddog "pup", a 30# Pearson recurve, and a few other "kids" bows, just so my own kids and their friends can shoot with me. To me, "Traditional Archery" is more than it roots, it......

...McDonald’s Canada aims to humanize image with new ad campaign For more than two years, McDonald’s Canada has given consumers a behind-the-scenes look at the company, including how its meat is processed, and how burgers are Photoshopped for ads. It’s an attempt to change misconceptions about the fast-food giant. Now, the company is shifting to a more emotional approach in its marketing. For a new advertising campaign, which launched on Monday evening, a small film crew criss-crossed the country interviewing more than 450 McDonald’s customers, staff, and suppliers. Some of those people will be the face of the “Welcome to McDonald’s” campaign. It will include TV ads featuring candid shots captured on the tour, and billboards and posters featuring photographs of real people, listing their hometowns and quotes about why they came to their local restaurant. Online and on social media, the company will post 30 videos telling short stories about some of those people. It is hoping to encourage more people to share their stories, to add to those videos. “[Consumers] still think of it as a global brand, and they don’t recognize the rich history we have in Canada,” said Antoinette Benoit, senior vice-president of marketing for McDonald’s Canada. “That’s what this work is about. It’s about showing the human side of the brand.” It’s a connection with customers the company is fighting to maintain. In January, McDonald’s Corp. announced that its net income fell 21 per cent last......

Camp Bow Wow

...Camp Bow Wow Corporate Budgeting: Final Project My companies name is Camp Bow Wow, which is an overnight boarding facility for mainly dogs but other animals are welcome. The company was started in 2009 when the owner (Kasandra, myself) decided to become the owner of a dog named Buddy. All was well until Kasandra had a vacation planned and could not find any boarding facilities to meet the standards she was looking for. She had also recently inherited a large some of money in the amount of about 200,000 from the passing of her grandparents who also shared the love of animals with her. Kasandra used that money to find a place she could live and turn into a boarding facility and luckily she was able to find the perfect house with lots of land in the middle of town, so she got to work and the company shared its grand opening with the community in spring of 2011. The company has successfully been around for almost 3 years now offering products such as boarding, bathing, nail trims, and other products to ensure your animal is safe and happy. The location is right in the middle of the town of Appomattox so it’s perfect for people who are traveling in either direction and is known for their non-traditional animal boarding facilities, while targeting mainly dog breeds the facility is open to animals of several kinds. The reason we say its non-traditional is because the animals are not just kept in kennels all day and walked a few times unless requested by the owner, but......
