This selection was from the top 10 Billboard classical music. My favorite musical Artist is Jackie Evancho an 11 year old girl that has the tone and quality and even the emotion of a 30 year old who has taken voice lessons for 20 years. She is a debut artist.
The nature of her music is classical, and the best of her albums titled "In the eyes of an Angel" What i like about this particular song is both the lyrics and the music, because it make me to know that it does not matter your age your dream cam be achieved, if a young girl could sing and think like an adult, then there is nothing impossible. And also the lyrics talks about one believing in each other’s dream if you can look at yourself from the eyes of an angel. In this particular song the piano and the percussion were used in precise manner to enhance the lyrics of the song that brings you close to a kind of joyful tears. It was in verses and hooks. There was an intro, verse, hook that was sang solo by Jackie and another hook sang by the general back up group, and then back to verse.
This next title of song is the latest of Jackie's album titled "Dream With Me”. This is also a classical music and the piano was the major instrumentation used, and it was directed by David Forster who has five Grammy awards. "Dream With Me" is a very good song but is not well executed as her other song. The lyrics were not very clear and not much people can relate with the wordings. It was also has an intro and followed by verse and with low and high tempo at regular pace. It also has interlude where all the instruments were played all together that brought the song to a very sharp ending.
Generally Jackie is a wonderful singer She gained popularity after performing in the fifth season of the America's Got Talent competition at the age of 10, and finishing in second place. With the subsequent release of her "O Holy Night" EP, she became the best-selling debut artist of 2010, and she went on the following year to contend for the top position on American album charts with her Sony Music debut, entitled "Dream With Me". In addition to performing vocal music, Evancho plays the violin and piano, and writes song lyrics Evancho impressed musician David Foster with her large outpouring of original lyrics; and she co-wrote the title track on "Dream With Me",] a record that Foster produced. - Dream With Me has been officially certified Gold in the United States, signifying shipments in excess of 500,000 copies of the album!

...Motorola, Inc Strayer University Motorola, Inc. Motorola, Inc has encountered significant financial loss over the past decade. Although, they have made several strategic changes during this time, they have not been able to restore the company to its previous financially stable operation. By doing a SWOT analysis, Motorola may be able to develop a strategy to boost the company’s performance. Regardless of what strategy is incorporated, it must be able to return the firm to profitability. Motorola’s external environment has a large impact on its opportunities and threats. The threat that is impacting Motorola the most is new competitors based in different locations worldwide. These competitors, to include Nokia, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications, have found locations, suppliers, and strategies that work for them. For example, Japanese firms can make an exact duplicate of a Motorola product at a lower cost, yet higher quality. Consumers would rather pay less for a better quality product, than to pay more for lower quality. Other companies pose a threat, yet not as large a threat as those mentioned previously. These companies are LG Electronics, Apple, Inc., Research in Motion (RIM), and Helio, Inc.

...Case Study: “Bob Galvin and Motorola, Inc.” Business Leading Organizational Change BUSI 6132 October 2, 2012 Motorola: Macro/Micro - Problem and Causes Motorola was a very large company with 75,000 employees and a huge organizational structure. (Jick & Peiperl, 2011) They covered the entire United States and 15 foreign countries. The macro issues in this case stem from having too many layers of management. There were nine to twelve layers between the first line managers and the executive level. (Jick & Peiperl, 2011) The average span of control was over five people or fewer in most cases. Thirty percent of leadership managed three people or less. (Jick & Peiperl, 2011) Another macro issue was the multilateral reporting structure between Bob Galvin, CEO/Chairman, William Weisz, Vice Chairman, and John Mitchell, President. (Jick & Peiperl, 2011) This reporting structure was complicated and viewed as the same through the eyes of lower level management. Motorola’s management wanted one single voice, style and direction. (Jick & Peiperl, 2011) Do away with three leaders with differentiated views, style and direction. Japanese competition was another macro issue that Motorola had to contend with. With Japanese technology expanding and trade practices relaxed or non-existent, all were considered a threat to Motorola. Japan was selling products at less than fair value to rapidly increase their market share. (Jick & Peiperl, 2011) To help alleviate...
