• Please do not walk in on the middle of a presentation. Wait until there is a noticeable break before entering the classroom.
• Please be courteous: Do not prepare to leave until I dismiss class. It is difficult to hear or make a point when you are packing your book bag.














Please be serious and respectful towards the instructor and your classmates. What can be said to one person can be said to the whole class. Any signs of disrespect toward your classmates, or me I will excuse you for that day and you will lose points.
Please raise your hand before contributing to class discussion. Make sure your contribution is well informed by your reading and not solely "off the top of your head." Although speculation and
"guesses" are also welcome.
There will be no eating in class. Drinking (non-alcoholic), however, is permitted.
Do not sleep in my class. If we are watching a video, this does not mean naptime. You will be asked to leave with no further discussion.
PLEASE TURN OF ALL PAGERS AND CELL PHONES WHILE IN CLASS. If you fail to do this, you will be dismissed from class and marked absent with NO DISCUSSION.
ALL CELL PHONES SHOULD BE STORED AWAY.
I strongly encourage you to utilize me during my office hours or feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail if you have any questions or concerns. Do not wait until the end of semester before you take interest in this course or your grade.
Please, before asking about requirements or what we will study read the syllabus first.
Please, do not use the class as an arena to debate grades or your personal issues. If you have a concern about a grade you received for a specific assignment, a personal issue that I need to consider or a question relating to class in general then make an appointment to see me at my office.

...MEMORANDUM To: Dilara Dyer From: Katie Rosser Date: 12/9/15 RE: FINAL EXAM Case Study #1: I choose to work on case study #1 over case study #2 because first I felt it would be more challenging than the other. As I read case study #2 I had this feeling like this was my life and I was living in Armando’s situation. My parents, recently divorced, co-own multiple franchises. I have been managing their franchises for over 7 years now but I am also ready to move on and try new things in my life. After I graduate college I plan on moving somewhere far out of Arizona. Just like Armando did. If that does happen and everything still stays the same and a couple years roll by I can foresee that my mother will want to retiree eventually. She is a business woman at heart however and will want to keep an eye on her empire so she will eventually offer the franchise to me but probably keep 10% or 15% of the company so she can just keep on eye on everything. My point is case study #2 is too easy. Instead of Mexicans I work specifically with Navajos and have been taught years ago a fraction of the Navajo language. So I have decided to push the boundaries of my management knowledge. In case study #1 I will try to open my mind in Penny’s situation to diversity, teamwork and the communication challenges I believe I will have to face in my near future. Question #1 (Discuss the case study in terms of diversity issues): This is a very great question because in today's economy the world is...

...The first thing that I would start teaching an ELL student English would be (this would be if the child what Hispanic) flash cards. This would start out simple like pencil, paper, food, bathroom. You know things where would could start our relationship. The next thing I would do is pictures of things and have words scrambled up. I would have the child match the words up to the right picture. I would also have fun games after they understand what’s going on. I would reward them with prizes as they win. I guess that could go along with the word scramble also. Have a computer set up so they could use to help understand what they might have missed. You could also pair them up with a friend, sometimes people learn better from peers than from a teacher. Audio over the radio. Sometimes after hearing it repeated several times, it does catch on. You could also do say and repeat practices. With my own experience I do know saying stuff aloud several times you do understand and comprehend better. You could make a little catchy tune to what you are learning at that time. Like the School House Rock. Those tunes are educational and when they get in your head they never come out. Some kids are visual and after writing the word several times and seeing it they understand where it comes from. Last but not least, when the children understand what they are learning, have a little quiz and see if they can write and sentence on what you have learnt.

...ASSIGNMENT - 3 Answers 1 Answer 2 Answer 3 4. For what types of workloads does SJF deliver the same turnaround times as FIFO? ANSWER: - In the above case if the jobs are same in size or the jobs periodically applied (i.e. first shortest job then later second shortest job and continues) then the turnaround time of SJF is same as FIFO. 5. For what types of workloads and quantum lengths does SJF deliver the same response times as RR? ANSWER: - The response time delivered by SJF is equal to the response time of RR but this happens only when all the jobs arrived are at the point when the planning quantum of RR is bigger than the bigger occupation to be administrations in order of increasing size. 6. What happens to response time with SJF as job lengths increase? Can you use the simulator to demonstrate the trend? ANSWER: - If you suppose the length of the job increases then average response time varies (increases).If every job is sorted in increasing job order than the last job response time will be equal to the sum of current job and previous (n-1) jobs. In this way if the size of the job increases the response time will also increases for all larger jobs. 7. What happens to response time with RR as quantum lengths increase? Can you write an equation that gives the worst-case response time, given N jobs? ANSWER: - In the case of RR, the response time increases as the quantum lengths increases. This happens because the waiting time of a process for its turn......

...Guidelines to Improve Public Awareness of the Services Offered by the Sedona Fire District Jayson Coil Battalion Chief, Sedona Fire District DRAFT manuscript Submitted to Assistant Chief Terry Keller April 14, 2010 Guidelines to Improve Public Awareness of the Services Offered by the Sedona Fire District Why We Are Unique The Sedona Fire District cannot be accurately compared with most rural or urban fire departments in the nation. Although we provide the same core services, we also provide a level of expertise above and beyond most agencies. Our unique environment requires we be proficient in swiftwater rescue, high angle rescue, wildland fire, and other disciplines not always associated with fire departments. We do provide a higher level of medical care than is required. The additional costs are commensurate with the added benefits our agency provides. It is easy for people to argue that we are overstaffed when our level of preparedness is compared to the average call volume we experience. Unfortunately, this thinking is inherently flawed. As an organization charged with helping people in their time of need, we do not have the luxury of just preparing for an average day. We choose to focus on preparing for serious emergencies and multiple calls that do occur. This is the very tenet emergency preparedness is based on. Until we can predict when emergencies will happen and exactly how many people we will need when we show up, we will err on the side......

Demografické trendy súčasného sveta – dva protichodné vývojové trendy v dvoch častiach sveta: a/Európa a Severná Amerika: 2/3 obyvateľov živí 1/3, trend: počet obyvateľov začne pomaly ubúdať → aktívna časť obyvateľov bude musieť uživiť viac dôchodcov ako dnes. b/rozvojové krajiny (RK): v Afrike – ½ obyvateľov musí uživiť druhú polovicu, demografická explózia tretieho sveta. Transformáciu meniaceho sa sveta umocňujú dva trendy: stále rýchlejší nárast svetovej populácie, migrácia obyvateľov RK z vidieka do miest. Populačný problém – rozvojové krajiny: realizujú politiku zameranú na reguláciu plodnosti – antipopulačná p. India – Indov sa rodí viac ako Číňanov → tlak na infraštruktúru a nízke zásoby vody a potravín, maximálne 3 deti v rodine → nepomer medzi narodenými pohlaviami → nelegálny výber pohlavia, potraty. V minulosti epidémie – prirodzený regulátor počtu obyvateľov. Čína - za 15 r. sa znížil počet detí na ženu o 2/3, starý čínsky zvyk – rodina musí mať mužského potomka → každé tretie tehotenstvo sa prerušuje.

In this McKinsey Awardwinning article, he chronicles the events that led him to realize that, without open communication to foster employee trust and display management commitment, even the most sophisticated strategy can come unstuck. In August 1980,1 was named general manager of the newly created Westinghouse Synthetic Fuels Division (SFD). The division's nucleus was a department engaged in coal gasification research and development and supported, in part, by the US Department of Energy. The technology was highly regarded, and the outlook for syntbetic fueis was promising. Oil prices v/ere continuing to rise; worldwide oil shortages were forecast, as were crude oil prices of $100 per barrel; and the Carter administration had just created the Synthetic Fuels Corporation to stimulate the production of synfuels from domestic resources and reduce US dependence on imported oil.
