Mgmt 362-Organizational Behavior: Week 5 - Case Study
July 2, 2014

Synopsis: Tricia Monet is store director of a national chain store for household products and personal care located in Sioux City, Iowa. Tricia, coming from an accounting background decided she wanted to try a different career field; though she liked the organization and structure of accounting she wanted to be able to interact with people. Tricia had no supervisory or managerial experience when first starting at personal reflections. So, the company provided a short two week training program for assistant store directors. Once training was complete the store director was responsible for continued training. The store directors were not included in the decision-making process for new hires of assistant store directors. When Tricia was initially hired she was hired as an assistant store director, by the district manager of Personal Reflections. Tricia completed the initial two weeks of training; she was then assigned to be one of three assistant directors at the Sioux City, Iowa store. Heather Munson, the current director of the store in Sioux City, was not consulted about Tricia’s placement; it is company policy that store directors were not involved in the decision of placement. Because of this company policy Tricia and Heather did not have a good working relationship. While Heather was the store director, the store constantly failed to meet sales goals. The sales floor seemed to be messy and cluttered; the clutter and confusion of the sale’s floor made it difficult for customers and employees to find the merchandise they needed. Upon arriving at the store location this was an immediate concern for Tricia. Tricia implemented a plan and strategy to remedy the sale’s floor issues only to be met with argumentativeness and scolding by Heather. Just over a month after Tricia...

Individualism is the highest ranking in Hofstede’s Analysis.  With a group of 3, Masculinity is our highest-ranking dimension. Everyone in the group ranked High with masculinity, which means that the U.S. experiences a higher degree of gender differentiation of roles.  Males dominate many roles, though women are more competitive.

Central Park Five

...Shirene Tabarestani 1895-0581 The Central Park Five Documentary In one of the most well known cities of the United States, New York City was the central focus in the 1980’s. Five minority youths aged 14 to 16 were arrested and convicted of rape, sexual assault, and almost murdering 28-year old white female investment banker, Trisha Meili, as she was jogging through Central Park on the night of April 19th, 1989. These innocent Latino and African American five young men— Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Raymond Santana, Korey Wise, and Yusef Salaam—were exonerated in 2002 after serving 6-13 years in prison until the condemned murderer, Matias Reyes confessed to the rape of Trisha Meili, where his DNA was discovered to match the evidence from Meili’s rape along with other unsolved rapes that have occurred in or near the park prior to this case. The incident took over the headlines in the news and tabloids for weeks and weeks as the hungry press took the perfect golden opportunity to whip up a frenzy attack against the black middle-working class and their youths. Trisha Meili suffered from memory loss and multiple head traumas that failed to allow her to identify her attackers and therefore could not say much during the investigation. The documentary was made to open the eyes of the public by interviewing the now-adult males who suffered horrendously at a group of a vindictive and unjust legal system along with the media coverage. The general perceptions about crime and......

Culture Movie Report

...ROWLAND JOHNSON GLOBAL WORK FORCE MOVIE REPORT: “Trishna” 2/16/14 Trisha is a powerful Indian movie that tells the story of a poor young woman who fell in love with the son of a wealthy business man. Trishna, the main character is played by Freida Pinto and her love interest Jay, is played by Riz Ahmed. This movie is set in contemporary Rajasthan which is the largest state in the republic of India in 2011. Jay is the son of a wealthy business man who has returned home to India to work in his father’s hotel business. Trishna meets Jay by chance when she was dancing at a hotel lobby and he is instantly attracted by her beauty and her plight. He offers her a job working in one of his father’s hotels and she accepts the position out of necessity because her father was involved in a car accident which left him disabled. At first things went well in their romance, Jay is very generous and he even sponsors Trishna to take a course in hotel management. They seem to be genuinely falling in love even though their romance would cross class barriers which would pose a threat to the relationship. Things took a drastic turn one evening after they shared a kiss, Trishna returned home to her father in a frantic manner and later found out she was pregnant. Whether she was raped by Jay is unclear in the movie. After a lot of pressure from her family, she reluctantly aborted the pregnancy. Jay later found Trishna and convinced her to move with him to Mumbai. After a short lived happy......

...Most people know that a flour and water mixture is used to make paper mache, but are completely unaware that you can make even regular "Elmer's" glue using three everyday kitchen ingredients. We discovered this recipe on a solar cooking site, used it successfully in my new and improved solar cooker (plans and pictures coming very soon!) and also in place of regular school glue for crafts and projects.  In scientific tests, this glue has proven to be just as strong as regular white glue, so you don't have to be concerned about its holding power. This glue is a much cheaper alternative to regular glue. Why not give it a try today? Object: Alternative Glue To create a glue from household products. What you’ll need: * 1½ cups milk * 3 teaspoons white vinegar * 1 tablespoon baking soda * Water * Strainer * Pan Estimated Experiment Time: 5 minutes to make the glue, 15 minutes to dry. Process 1. Heat the milk in a pan until warm, and then add the white vinegar. Keep heating and stirring until the milk separates into solid and liquid. 2. Strain the mixture, keeping the solid part. Mold what you have left into one big, slimy ball. 3. Now, put it back in the pan and add the baking soda and enough water to get the right consistency. Heat it up until it starts bubbling, then turn it off and let it cool. Observation: Result: By adding the vinegar, a chemical reaction makes the milk to separate into two parts...

...Trisha Alexis D. Lorenzo Environmental Science 7 – J. Villalon Mrs. Diana G. Cruz I. The Nature, Purpose and Consequence of Science The enormous advances in science promise infinite potential in a world that, paradoxically, has become distinctly finite. The benefits of science are offset by adverse unintended effects. They are perpetuated by the structure of technological development and the underlying assumptions within the world view that brought forth those benefits. Causal layered analysis is a futures research tool that enables the creation of transformative spaces in which we can envisage alternative and preferred futures. It focuses on the deeper dimensions, questioning our assumptions and exposing the contradictions and our prejudices. It is applied here to the introduction of genetic engineering in agriculture in New Zealand as a means to illustrate a role for science whereby the “disruption and chaos” may be minimised if not eliminated. II. The Beneficial Effects of Science and Technology There are nearly unlimited benefits from science and technology. Technology can make our lives easier through the use of medical supplies and other things, such as cellphones. You are reaping the benefits of computers right now by finding the answer to your question. Sciences such as seismology (the study of earthquakes) help us to know when an earthquake is coming and where would be a safe place to escape to. It can also help to build more......

Week 1 Assignment

...SUMMARY OF A CASE INVOLVING 4TH AMENDMENT RIGHTS At about 6:08am, on October 4, 2009, Trisha Oliver, a resident of Cranston Rhode Island called 911 reporting that her six-year-old son, Marco Nieves, stopped breathing. Emergency authorities took Marco to Hasbro Children's Hospital, where he was found to be in full cardiac arrest. He later died after 11 hours attempt to save his life. At about 6:20am, Sgt. Michael Kite of the Cranston Police Department had arrived at the apartment, where he found Oliver, her boyfriend Michael Patino, and their 14-month-old daughter, Jazlyn Oliver grieving the loss of their loved one. Officer Kite noticed a few odd things about the apartment where Marco suffered his cardiac arrest. Among these things was a cell phone on the kitchen counter, a couple of stripped beds and linens on the floor, a trash can with, dark brown vomit in a toilet, and, crucially, a cell phone on the kitchen counter. Kite picked up the cell phone, and it was at that point—in the just-released opinion of a Rhode Island state court—that police proceeded to mangle a murder case and violate Patino's Fourth Amendment rights by viewing text messages without a warrant. Officer Kite viewed a text message on the phone, which was owned by Trisha Oliver, reading "Wat if I got 2 take him 2 da hospital wat do I say and dos marks on his neck omg." The message was sent from Oliver to Patino, although the sending of the message apparently failed. There were other messages on the phone......

This lends itself to the recognition, reputation and knowledge of Habitat for Humanity as they are recognized in most communities, states, and internationally. Therefore, volunteers are plentiful allowing restores to have help, build site to have workers, and individuals to promote donations through the various fundraisers throughout the year. Through the years, Habitat for Humanity has caught the attention of many people including a few celebrities such as Brad Pitt (actor), Trisha Yearwood (singer), and President Carter according to the Habitat for Humanity website (2016).

...Hello everybody!! A very good morning to ya'll! This is Maheedhar, here to talk about the topic 'Dont lose your mind. Lose your weight!' Well this is actually a title of a book by Ms.Rujuta Diwekar. But its only the title which has been borrowed. Though I have already spoken about this earlier, nobody seems to be following it! (Point to myself) Well friends, first we should know the Importance of Exercise for the human body. Most people exercise to lose weight and stay healthy, both of which are very important for a well-balanced life. When we exercise, our heart rate is elevated, we breathe heavily, and we perspire – the brain releases endorphins and other hormones that induce happiness. This directly changes our emotional reactions to daily situations. When our emotional reactions change, our Lives change. Now, let us move on to the current scenario of Crash Dieting, GM Diets and Size Zero hypes. The GM diet consists of a series of intakes for a week which ranges from boiled vegetables to a very small bowl of rice. Trust me, it is extremely difficult and also has many ill effects. One being, the human body consists of 70% water. What the GM Diet does is, it sucks all the water from the body, thereby reducing the weight, which is not good for the body. Next is Size Zero. We all know a very popular actress starting this trend in India. But following this, may lead to bad skin, hair fall, giddiness and sometime even death. Cholesterol is a part of every structure of the......

Gender Inequities

...Gender Inequities Unit 8 Assignment 1: Gender Inequities ITT Technical Institute-Breckinridge School of Nursing GE291 Sociology Trisha Delgado 2/16/2015 Gender Inequities Culture of poverty means that impoverished countries are impoverished because their culture prevents them from experimenting. Their religion generally encourages the people of impoverished countries to accept their situation and to hope for a better life in the next life (Henslin, 2013). The theory of culture of poverty makes sense to me. I spent time in several Latin countries and from what I have experienced I would agree with the theory. The towns and villages we visited and worked in were a lot like the theory. The adults were very set in their ways, “why fix it, if it isn’t broken” type of mindset. Many would make homemade food and drinks to sell in the town center and raise just enough cattle and chickens to feed their families, they would garden what they could and barter what they couldn’t. They were afraid that if they changed anything they would go hungry and die and leave nothing for their children. The teenagers were eager to move to the cities where they could learn new technologies and have a different way of life but their parents and their religion make them stay in their town continuing with their way of life. I don’t feel like this theory is missing anything, if their culture didn’t restrict them from changing, experimenting, learning new things they may be able to change how......
