* Effective use of the subject line
* Limiting the e-mail to a single topic
* Use of conversational (as opposed to formal or "lawyerly") tone including appropriate salutation
* Concise, clear, and organized content with appropriate opening, body, and closing
* Appropriate and effective use of highlighting
* Appropriate use of e-mail (as opposed to phone, face-to-face) as the communication channel
Include 3-5 supporting examples of printed e-mails you have sent since the beginning of the semester. Number each example in the upper right-hand corner and refer to this number in your memo to support how you have demonstrated each concept. You may cite more than one example to support each concept. Each of your supporting examples must be used as least once and can be used multiple times. See e-mail format instructions for more information on e-mail expectations.

Reilly and Keith C. Brown, “Analysis of Investments and Management of Portfolio,” 9th edition, (South-Western, 2009) Chapter 5 Question 2 Question 10 Question 13 Question 15 2 The answers to the assignment questions In the text, the return due to exchange-rate changes (RX) is shown to be equal to fxt/fxt-1 - 1, where fxt is the foreign exchange rate at time t expressed in terms of the investor's home currency per unit of foreign currency. Let fxt be the exchange rate expressed in terms of dollars and fx*t be the exchange rate expressed in terms of pounds. These two rates are simply reciprocals, i.e., fx*t = 1/fxt. So from the table in the problem we have: Period (1 + RX) (1 + R*X) 3 1 2 3 4 5 (for US investor) 2.5/3 = 0.833 2.5/2.5 = 1.000 2/2.5 = 0.800 1.5/2 = 0.750 2.5/1.5 = 1.667 (for UK investor) 3/2.5 = 1.200 2.5/2.5 = 1.000 2.5/2 = 1.250 2/1.5 = 1.333 1.5/2.5 = 0.600 The total return to a U.S. investor from a U.K. investment is (1 + RX)(1 + RUK)  1; the total return to a U.K. investor from a U.S. investment is(1 + R*X)(1 + RUS)  1.

... writing process in the future. Experimenting with the five elements of creative writing - Image, Voice, Character, Setting and Story provided me with a firm fundamental understanding as to how I should begin crafting my portfolio. It was very interesting to discover how each of these elements worked independently as well as coherently within each of the four genres to provide a well rounded work of literature. Among the four genres, I was most comfortable with writing the Drama. Integrating all the necessary elements of creative writing into the drama came naturally to me as I could visualize the drama actually taking place on stage. The fact that all of my characters’ thoughts had to be externalized as opposed to fiction where I could go into my characters’ thoughts and not worry about the reader’s reaction proved to be an exciting challenge. Observing Love is Bl(ow)ind one can notice the use of this technique in the opening scene where Raf is in the bathroom doing drugs. Here, the audience may notice that he is actually physically talking to himself but if it were to be a work of Fiction, this exact monologue would be a perfect fit as the on-going thoughts in his head. My focus during scripting this drama was on keeping the characters as close to reality as possible and I achieved this by the apt use of language and stage direction. One of my favorite characters in this play is Josh the Bartender, who actually has a very small but pivotal role. If you may notice, if you remove...

...SITUATION WHERE EMAIL SHOULD BE USED IN CORPORATE COMMUNICATION Email is widely used as a form of business communication and overall it is a highly effective communication tool. Email is inexpensive, only requiring an Internet connection that is generally already present in the business. Although a printout of emails is possible, emails often stay as soft copies because archiving and retrieving email communications is easy to do. From the CEO to the janitorial staff and even temporary employees of the business can send and receive email communications. 1. Although it cannot and should not replace all face-to-face communication and others forms of communication, internal email usage can cover many areas within the business. Internal emails can function as an effective communication for sharing basic information, such as new cafeteria prices, paper use guidelines or security precautions, for example. Sending simple messages to an entire workforce with just the click of a mouse is fast, easy, convenient and can save the company money. If saved, the email can function as proof of a message sent or received, and is easily accessible to remind the recipient of pertinent information. Many businesses use email as part of its marketing efforts to share information with prospects, customers, and vendors. 2. Business emails should be concise and to the point. Use plain text and common fonts with a simple signature line. Fancy graphics, fonts, and backgrounds can take up...

Last year, when I retired, I invested the full amount in a balanced fund. As it was a diversified fund, I thought that investment in one balanced fund would allow me to diversify my investment and I would get a decent return. Unfortunately, the fund has given negative return in spite of the fact that the stock index during the period has gone up by 5 per cent. Being a retired person, I cannot take much risk but would like to...

Email Marketing

...Take a moment to think about your average day. If you’re like many other marketers, a good chunk of your time is probably spent on social media – writing status updates, creating ads, monitoring your mentions, replying to wall posts, etc. Now, take a moment to think about the time you spend on email marketing – growing your list, crafting great email content, and looking at analytics on your list growth and engagement. If you find you’re spending a majority of your time on social media, and little to no time on your email list, it could be a potentially tragic mistake that could be costing you sales. Here’s why. Just the stats: users, open rates, and click through rates. With Facebook boasting over 1 billion active users per month and Twitter boasting 255 million, we certainly couldn’t blame you for being persuaded to focus a large portion of your marketing efforts on social media. But what you don’t see so frequently touted are the statistics on email usage. According to Radicati, the total number of worldwide email accounts was 3.9 billion in 2013, and projected to be 4.9 billion by 2017. To put this in perspective for you, there are 3x more email accounts than there are Facebook & Twitter accounts combined. From a marketing perspective though, it’s the statistics on reach and engagement that show the real story. Did you know that organic reach on Facebook (I.e. the number of your fans who actually see your posts in their Newsfeed) is only 6%? On the...

...Luke Martino Writing 102 12/9/15 Writing 102 Portfolio Throughout this semester of Writing 102, I have been assigned to write four essays that have stressed the course competencies of subject matter knowledge, writing process knowledge, rhetorical knowledge, genre knowledge, discourse community knowledge, and meta-cognition. Through the process of drafting, editing, and revising three out of the four papers, I think I have been effectively able to absorb three of those course competencies; subject matter knowledge, rhetorical knowledge, and writing process knowledge. The first paper I was assigned to write for Writing 102 was a literacy narrative. For this paper, I was told to write about a past experience that helped influence my current writing and reading qualities. The core competencies that were involved in this essay were writing process knowledge and subject matter knowledge. I used writing process knowledge when I was told to generate ideas for my essay. I began by thinking of five possible ideas and from there I created a brainstorming web out of the two topics I thought would be the most interesting. Shortly after starting, I realized I could only build an effective brainstorming web from one idea. I decided to use the first time I forgot my lines in a play as my main idea for the essay. After I completed the brainstorming web and finished taking notes on what I remembered from the incident I started to follow the writing process that consisted of...

The date the letter needs to be sent in via email is March 15, 2016 at 11:55 pm to the address rsmwinterintership2017@rsm.com.

If you are unable to write the letter, I understand and I still appreciate everything you’ve done for me while I was your student. Otherwise, allow me to thank you in advance for the time spent fulfilling my recommendation request. Would it be beneficial for me to send you a reminder a week before the deadline?
