The concepts for week one
The artwork I choose, for this summary is the Salvador Dali the persistence of memory. The paint looks like it a balance between reality and dreamlike state, the painting looks like it takes place in a desert that is undiscovered. The sky has dark blue, light blue white, and yellow colors mix in with it that looks like it goes beyond the canvas the water in the painting.
Looks very clear in still and reflects the cliffs in the middle of the water, which the cliffs colors looks golden also looks like the sun is setting and the day is ending. The clocks look like they melted; into the ground, they also look like they are drooping gives off the idea that it is very hot in the painting.

In addition, the ground looks like it a greenish dark brown color, the painting looks like done with oil paints the painting style that he used was more of a dreamlike style. The paint looks like a mixture traditional with un-traditional and blended. My reaction this paint did engage me, for the reason the painting was it looks quiet and still.
It looks unreal and interesting because it makes me feel that time has stop and that we are no longer bound time anymore. In addition, that dreams, have become real and what is real has become a dream, which is so different and amazing to me for that reason. In addition,…...

...Assignment One, week One COM/156 July 24, 2011 Lisa Acerbo Assignment One, week One When writing a research paper, there can be some challenges to overcome. My first thought is what challenge do I have and need to overcome in order to write a great paper. The first challenge is keeping the readers interest and attention. It is very important to keep your readers interested in your writings and it can be hard trying to read something that you are unable to keep your attention on. Keeping the information of my writings to the research and subject will help this challenge. Another challenge can be determining an appropriate style and tone for my paper. Being consistent with my ideas in my style and tone, will keep the paper flowing with information and the reader will be able to understand the point I am trying to make. The third challenge is being persuasive enough in my writings and research papers. Also, being able to put my thinking and research into words and get my point across, but also integrate enough material from my sources to keep the paper persuasive and catch the reader’s attention will provide the needed steps to a great research paper. When writing my research papers, the strategies I want to utilize for my challenges are: finding an interesting subject to do my research on, and utilize as much information I can to write an interesting paper. By using as many resources I can, will insure that I have plenty of information to include in...

...Running head: LEADERSHIP APPROACH Leadership Approach University of Phoenix Leadership Approach Countless managers work tirelessly each day to help create thriving and dynamic organizations. Some of these managers possess unparalleled leadership qualities while others lack the knowledge and appropriate people skills to motivate and empower employees. Managers and Leaders have varying definitions. A manager can be effective without leadership qualities and a leader can be effective without management skills. However, in chapter one of Organizational Leadership, Yukl (2010) states, “defining managing and leading as distinct roles, processes, or relationships may obscure more than it reveals if it encourages simplistic theories about effective leadership (p. 8). The following paper provides an overview to the leadership approach of behavior as well as provides a description of the strengths and weaknesses of this approach. Behavior Approach The Behavior Approach began in the early 1950s after researchers declared the Trait Approach as being an ineffective means for identifying positive leadership qualities (Yukl, 2010). Researchers believed the key to successful leadership included the positive behaviors management displayed while on the job. Additionally, management stated behavior research falls into two general subcategories: (1) how managers spend their time and the typical patterns of activities, responsibilities and the functions for managerial jobs and...

Culture can affect the way a child is raised and the dynamics of a family. It will also affect the way people live and the environment they live in. There are different types of music, art and food that cultures will enjoy. There are many different types of cultures around the world. I am Spanish and have grown up in a Spanish culture. The most important part of a Spanish culture is family. When I first thought about what my culture is, family was the first thing that came to my mind. Within my family we are close and are there to support each other. My family can always count on each other for help. The Spanish culture makes every effort to teach the children in the family about being respectful, having good manners and family values. When there is a holiday we tend to have big family events and the majority of the family will attend. These events will include music, food, sometimes dancing and a lot of fun. Some of the arts that we enjoy will include dancing and music. When my children were young they took Flamenco Dancing. Flamenco dancing is a traditional folk art...

...XCOM/200 What is the difference between communication, human communication, impersonal communication, and interpersonal communication? Communication, the exchange of ideas, is the foundation of society. Society's fascination with communication begins at an early age. One of the earliest milestones a parent encourages a child to achieve is saying her first word. Speaking and understanding language is crucial because language is used to inform and educate. A person who can effectively communicate is likely to be successful in life. Human communication is an intentional act performed by a human agent for the purpose of causing some effect in an attentive human recipient. Our ability to use language to build words, combine these into meaningful sequences and then articulate them through speech that makes us the most powerful communicators on the planet. Interpersonal communication is also largely relational. This means the relationship will define the way we speak to different people who we have different relationships with. For example, you will speak differently to your roommate than you would with the Dean of Students. As stated above, these interdependent individuals within a relationship will impact one another, so what you say and how you act with different people will have positive and negative influences on the relationship. Impersonal communication is a kind of communication that we normally have with sales persons. It is actually a form of I-It Communication...

... the group surface as group members discover how to twist and shape their emotions, thoughts, and principles to match the team dynamics. At this stage some members may linger silently, whereas others challenge to control the group and process. To advance to stage three, members need to advance from the “testing-and-demonstrate” state of mind to a “get-to-the-bottom” mentality. Group members realize they have to listen to one another and show respect to various ideas. Stage three is norming. Confrontations prevail and stronger group belonging and unification is emerging. As members change their preconceived ideas, they start to share information and ask questions of one another. Stage four is performing. Group members indeed become one entity. Group confidence is soaring and devotion among group members is strong. The function of completing the task develops into sincere problem solving. Action happens here. Group managers should embrace individual creativity because it enhances group performances. Last stage is Adjourning, also known as mourning stage, as group members frequently encounter loss. This occurs, especially when a group is disbanding abruptly or with little preparation to come to a close. A planned conclusion should include acknowledge contributions and accomplishment and provide the opportunity for members to express individual goodbyes. A primary component in group development is effective communication. Successful and open communication creates a...

Week One Assignment: Writing

...When you’re writing anything beside you free write which you really don't have to show to anyone because it's meant for you to read. But when you’re writing anything you always want to think about your audience first because they are the ones who will be reading you work. Lets say you writing a children's book you don't want to write something about someone getting hit by a car, how much they was bleeding and they lived to see another day. It might sound nice that they lived but this is not the type of book you would want children reading at a young age can scar them. You want to make sure that the way you’re speaking in a children's book is sweet, nice, and fun for them to be happy. Now for another example if I was writing a movie script I would have a bigger audience, I would want to choose what type of move am I going to write if it's a comedy I would want to make sure the stuff I'm writing is funny something you can go home to and crack a joke about it to one of your friends. If it is a documentary then I'm going to want to make sure that I have all the details about that I'm talking about so it is a quick movie and no one really understood what I was talking about. Your audience is your key to anything you write its best you think about how you want to speak to them threw your writing....

..., there is a positive aspect to stereotypes, like the chance to receiving a better job, education, or other positive opportunities. For example, one racial stereotype that may help a race, would be that all Asians are smart. If this is a stereotype that people hold while interviewing someone, then the Asian person who interviewed may have a better chance at getting the job than someone else. What are the negative aspects of stereotypes? One negative aspect I believe comes from stereotypes, would be how close minded people become from stereotypes that are present. I think that there are a lot of people who are truly afraid to be who they are, because they are scared, influenced, or threaten by stereotypes that people hold and even voice. Part III Answer each question in 50 to 150 words related to those stereotypes. Provide citations for all the sources you use. Define stereotypes and prejudice. What is the difference between stereotyping and prejudice? Use examples to illustrate the differences. Stereotypes are unreliable or exaggerated generalizations about all members of a group, that do not take individual differences into account. Prejudice is when one holds a negative attitude towards an entire catefory of people, such as a racial or ethnic minority. For example, a stereotype against Mexican men is that they are all jobless. However, a prejudice against a Mexican man from a White man, would be something like being rude and negative......

...Week One Discussion Domains of Rational Expressions The first initial of my first name is G and these are my assigned rational expression on which to base my work: x2-14x+49100x | m2+2m-24m2-3m | The domain of a rational expression is the set of all real numbers except the value/values of the variable that result in division by zero when substituted into the expression. In the Real Number System division by zero cannot be done. There is no number that can be the answer when divided by zero this attempt would be called “undefined.” A denominator cannot be zero since in a rational expression the denominator divides the numerator. In my first expression, I need to set the denominator equal to zero to find my excluded values for x. 100x = 0 x= 0 This is the excluded value for my first expression. The domain (D) for my first expression is the set of all Reals excluding ±0. In set notation, this can be written as D = {w| w ∈ ℜ, w ≠ 0} In my second expression, I need to set the denominator equal to zero to find my excluded values for m. m2-3m= 0 I can simplify m(m-3)=0 Solving for m m= 0, 3 These are the excluded values for my second expression. The domain (D) for my second expression is the set of all Reals excluding ±0,3 . In set notation, this can be written as D = {w| w ∈ ℜ, w ≠ 0,3} Now, both of my expressions have excluded values. In one expression, I have one excluded value because zero times anything gives you zero and can not be......

Week One Strategic Linkages

...Zachary Denning Week 1 Strategic Linkages HRM-310 1. A strategic partner linkage between HR department and the business operations creates a mutually beneficial relationship. Our text book states that strategic human resource management creates a clear connection between the goals of the organization and the activities of the people who work there (DeCenzo, Robbins, & Verhulst, 2009). What this means is that the employees are able to see the direct connection between what they do and how it helps the organization achieve their objective. When these goals are aligned, it means the departments can work in unison and synchronize their needs. When the HR is a strategic partner, they will be able to recruit employees from the right sources to ensure they are selecting people with the right skills and abilities. In addition, the HR will be able to focus the efforts of training and development towards the organizational objective. This means that they are not only recruiting the right people for the job, but they are using a strategic method to keep them properly trained. On top of the training of new skills, an HR strategic alignment helps employees develop those skills necessary for the organization to achieve its goal. As a strategic partner, HR masters all of the functions to find and keep a force of proficient employees. In fact, research shows that companies that link strategy with human resources show increased profitability and shareholder value ((DeCenzo...

Case Study Week One

...Case Study – Week One Submitted by: Stephanie Richey For: Southern New Hampshire University Professor Richard J. Monohan QSO-600-X2072 – Operations Management Date: November 22, 2014 Strutledge College is considering the addition of an MBA program. Certain Factors have been identified that should help in making a final decision. However, the college has solicited recommendations that will be presented to the Board of Regents. The purpose of this case study will propose a course of action plan that will benefit Strutledge College and its endeavors to expand its student base and build valuable ties with area businesses, and simply survive. Problem Although business courses are taught at Strutledge College there are no undergraduate degrees offered. Enrollment has decreased and costs to operate the college are rising. With regards to budget, Strutledge is not in a position to hire additional staff. In addition, recent reports of the dwindling value of an MBA are cause for concern.

... calculations to represent these cash flows and, to add to the confusion, many are simply referred to as free cash flow. Estimating free cash flow for future periods using current financial information presumes that the current performance is representative of the company and its ability to generate cash flows. Variation in capital expenditures from year to year, combined with the typical variability in net income, suggest that a better benchmark may use some type of averaging of cash flows from several periods, not just one fiscal period. The benefit of free cash flow is still debated. While free cash flow provides financial flexibility, it also provides temptation to invest in non-value adding projects. The value estimated using free cash flows should be evaluated with respect to the sensitivity of the estimate to the specific calculation of free cash flow, the assumptions regarding growth rates, and the assumptions imbedded in the calculation of the appropriate cost of capital.
