Assessment 1 (Discussion)

For any organization to succeed, it should analyse the requirements of any new role and come up with a skills list which should include the required personal traits for the best candidate.
Extrovert individuals tend to be faster, good at greeting people, do not mind the interruption, often act quickly and get their energy from people, therefore; they do well in roles which require interaction like: human resources, sales, purchasing and customer service. Whereas, Introvert individuals tend to be careful with details, don’t like interruptions, like to think a lot before they act, work confidently alone, therefore; they thrive in positions that require attention to details, reflection and fore thinking (Alina Vrabie, 2013).
Conscientiousness is the degree to which an individual is responsible, thorough, organized, hard-working and results-oriented (Behling 1998, 5). There is a relation between conscientiousness and job performance; employers desire to hire workers who are conscientious as they can create environments in which they can achieve positive outcomes, they follow the rules, have low tendency to procrastinate, exercise more restraint (Fayard 2012, 6-8).
Conscientiousness and Extraversion are somewhat interconnected as high extraversion predicted low fear of social evaluation or less social anxiety (Behl 1997, 40), individuals high in conscientiousness have high tendency to overwork and tolerate discomfort and frustration in order to complete tasks (Behl 1997, 7).
While well job performance is largely predicted by conscientiousness, employers must use a precise matching approach and find good methods to measure conscientiousness and extroversion and their relevance to the role on hand (Behling 1998, 81-82).

...Question: What is callable preferred stock? Answer: A type of preferred stock that gives a corporation the right to call in the stock at a certain price and to retire the stock. Callable preferred stock is one of many types of preferred stock. Instead of having a maturity date, it can be bought back by the issuing company for a certain price on a certain date. Question: Why do corporations issue such stock? Answer: Issuing callable stock offers the company protection against future interest rate fluctuation. Just like a homeowner wants the ability to refinance should rates drop in the future, a company wants the right to call back stock that pays a higher rate when rates go down. Companies/corporations need to raise money to expand. To do this, companies either need to borrow money, or sell part of the company. This selling off part of the company is known as issuing stock. Issuing stock is known as equity financing. The advantages of issuing stock is that it does not require the company to pay back the money or to make interest payments as in debt financing Question: Given the different features that are associated with stock (callable, cumulative, preferred, etc.)? Answer: Callable stock - . Callable preferred stock is one of many types of preferred stock. Instead of having a maturity date, it can be bought back by the issuing company for a certain price on a certain date.

Dicussion Boards/ Academic Papers

...When you write a letter to your mother, you probably use casual language, which might include short phrases instead of complete sentences or clichés or phrases that have personal meaning for your family. When you write an email or text a friend, you might shorten words or even use a group of letters to represent a word or a statement. While these shortcuts or casual language are acceptable and even expected in these types of written communication, writing for the academic world requires a more formal approach. As you develop your writing skills for the academic world, you should be aware of grammar concerns or words or phrases that should be avoided. If you work to eliminate grammar errors and to sharpen your diction, your academic work will become stronger and more powerful. Grammar Concerns: Grammar is the backbone of written communication. While there are more grammar elements than we have listed here, these represent the areas that students struggle with the most. 1. Agreement a. Pronoun/ Antecedent Agreement i. Definition: The pronoun and its antecedent do not agree in number (antecedent = the word that the pronoun refers to). ii. Example: 1. Everyone takes their books home. (incorrect) 2.

Psychology of Groups

It’s my first week in and I’m having a blast learning all kinds of things about group formation and group decisions. I especially learned a lot from watching 12 Angry Men with my classmates. I loved this film because it identified almost all of the group roles in some way, so for me I really got a chunk of what group dynamics really is my very first day. I found group dynamics to be about a list of things, but more specifically to feel affection and be in control while in a group because most members of a group expect to be able to speak and be understood in discussions. The next day I was partnered with a group of individuals I didn’t really know at the time, but we were tasked with identifying the group roles of each jury member in 12 Angry Men. Anyway, I am very intuitive person and I felt I wasn’t getting enough recognition in my group the time. I wanted give a more in-depth opinion on the group roles we were discussing, but I guess my group was more focused on generalizing the group roles for each jury member. Although I didn’t get to fully express my opinion…......

...dicussion Lisa Marie Sinotte Walden Discussion Never events are the kind of events that should never happen in healthcare. These “never events” are defined as preventable adverse events by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (http://www.cms.gov/). Starting in 2008, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services eliminated or reduced payments for certain “never events” (Thornlow & Merwin, 2009). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid requires hospitals to report claims for discharges and whether or not selected conditions were present on admission. If a condition is acquired in a hospital, Medicare will not cover the cost of the acquired condition. This “Pay for Performance” initiative highlights the importance of following performance standards to decrease or eliminate “never events”. Preventing patient falls is a universal issue and a “never event”. Falls, and injuries from falls for hospital inpatients are the most frequent adverse events reported (http://www.nursingworld.org). With global emphasis to provide safe quality care, there in now increased scrutiny and inspection for the assessment of falls. The Joint Commission requires accredited hospitals to conduct fall risk assessments so that prevention methods can be implemented into the patient’s plan of care. The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators allows organizations to compare injury fall rates so that participating hospitals can evaluate the efficacy of their processes, clinical......

...In the United States, the older generation did not like body ornamentation because they think it is bizarre or abnormal. However, the younger generations is changing that today because they believe that it is a sign of meaning of self-expression. For example, people that have tattoos are trying to tell a story in the form of art and body piercing is a sexual expression. Likewise, other cultures around the world have been doing this for centuries. The African women will input rings around their necks and both sex will insert plates in their lips. Therefore, every culture practice these body ornamentation differently. Going back to the pages of history, tattoos in the early ages, were borne not for fashion. Instead, they were generally inscribed in body, essentially for the medicinal and spiritual qualities (iloveindia, n.d.). “While beadwork and jewelry are also frequently used as a means of beautification, there are a few types of body art that dominate. Body decoration and transformation occurs at set times in a person’s life and the decoration’s thought to enhance a person’s status and beauty” (Admin, 2010). In varies of cultures, tattoos and body piercing is the form of beauty and power because it reconfigures identity, sexuality, gender, and status. Africans and indians mark themselves for beauty, medical purpose, and protection from evil spirits. “Traditional tattooing in African culture is not a mere expression of one’s individuality.

Dicussion Questions

...Discussion Questions Review “Feminist interpretations of intellectual property” in Chapter 9. Please respond to the following: •Explain why, according to Halbert, quilting and knitting are traditionally outside the realm of copyright protection. There have been changes in the world of knitting. The long history of sharing patterns among knitters was done in easy to share formats with minimal concerns for copyright issues. But today a dominance of ownership has been privatized to maximize in profits. Both quality and knitting were primary ways of creating and have existed outside copyright law perhaps because the romantic author and the desire for profit were not central to the process of creation. The knitting patterns were sold to make money and not to further the culture of knitting. •Discuss how and why this is changing. The change in the traditional way of quilting and knitting versus the copyright protection is the dominance of ownership. Everything now is being privatized while maximizing on the profits. A personal signature, individualizing the patterns, allows a financial gain for anyone wanting to ‘copy’ a pattern. •Explain why crafts like these do not fit inside the copyright paradigm. These crafts were known for completion amongst women enjoying the company of each other. The crafts don’t fit into copyright paradigm because it attempts to solidify connections between people and not divide people by property boundaries. •Discuss what values underlie......
