answer the case Qs in small paragraph 4-5 pages (double space)

Case: Caroline Regis at Excel Systems

Please read the enclosed case and answer the following questions in approximately 4-5 pages. You must answer each and every question clearly, and draw on theories/concepts discussed in this course.
Do not forget to mention any assumptions you need to make while preparing your answers.

Required format:

  • 1” margin all around
  • double spacing
  • size 12 times new roman font
  • APA formatting style for references
  • Response length: 4-5 pages excluding references and any appendices
  • Questions:
  1. Why has Regis been so successful in her career to date? In your answer be sure to include a discussion of: (a) person – organization and person – job fit for Regis at Vardian from 2008 – 2010, (b) person – organization and person – job fit for Regis at Excel from 2010 – 2012, (c) person – organization and person – job fit for Regis at Excel from 2012 till the merger with Gemini, (d) Regis’ managerial skills throughout her career, and (e) mentoring provided by Anderson.
  2. Why did Regis respond in the manner she did to the outsourcing proposal? Is her management style inconsistent with the past? First put yourself in her situation, intellectually and emotionally. Then, think about the current situation at Excel after the merger with Gemini in early 2014. Is Regis just being change-resistant? Or, is she trying to protect her territory? Do you support Regis’ ultimatum at the end of the case?
  3. Could Regis have done anything differently? If yes, identify specific incidents and behaviors that transpired, and be specific in how she could have handled these situations differently. You should also think about all of the other stakeholders in this case.
  4. What should Regis do now? In your answer you should think of the post-merger situation and all of the stakeholders involved. Considering Regis’ phenomenal record so far, does she need to change her skills/attitudes/behaviors for her future career growth?
  5. Describe 2-3 personal take-aways from this case (related to concepts from this course)?
    • What have you learnt about the outcomes of various types of social ties/networks?
    • Regis threw an ultimatum at her boss Spanner. How can he resolve this conflict?What have you learnt from this situation?
    • Do female managers face challenges different from their male counterparts?

    Thank you..

Need by Friday Please

Choose one (1) of the topics below and develop a three to four (3-4) paragraph essay (of at least 250-500 words) which adequately address the topic you have chosen.

Topic Choices:

  • There have been many theories regarding how the pyramids at Giza were constructed. Most experts agree that they were constructed as burial monuments for pharaohs, but “how” these ancient people constructed monuments of such great size without modern machinery is a mystery which is still being debated. 
  • No one can say for certain what happened to the Mayan people, but theories abound and include varied possible alternatives to explain the abrupt and mysterious disappearance of the Mayan civilization.
  • Tutankhamen died young, at around 18 years of age. However, his cause of death has not been confirmed. Did he die of an injury, of illness, or was he murdered?
  • Considered the “Mummy’s Curse,” a series of unexplainable, unfortunate, or tragic events that happened to the people who were present at the opening of Tutankhamen’s tomb. 
  • There has always been debate about the identity of the poet Homer, the presumed author of The Illiad and The Odyssey. Was he a real person or not?
  • The monumental size and complexity of the Tomb of Shihuangdi is astounding. It is believed that the workers were forced to remain inside the tomb when it was walled shut so they would not reveal the secrets of its construction. What was the emperor’s purpose for such an elaborate burial place?
  • Other topic choice recommended and approved by the professor and supported by the grading rubric

Write a 3-4 paragraph paper in which you:

  1. Clearly state the “mystery” and provide a brief summary of at least two (2) reasonable and scholarly theories which could explain the mystery. Because some theories may sound far-fetched, include the source or promoter of each theory – such as a scientist, a historian, a theologian, etc.
  2. Identify one (1) of the theories as the most plausible and provide at least two (2) convincing reasons why the theory you have chosen is the best one to explain the mystery.
  3. Use at least two (2) sources besides the textbook. Note: Wikipedia and other similar Websites do not qualify as academic resources. You are highly encouraged to use the Resource Center tab at the top of your Blackboard page.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA Style format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. (Note:Students can find APA style materials located in the course shell for reference)
  • Include a cover page containing the tile of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Explain how key social, cultural, and artistic contributions contribute to historical changes.
  • Explain the importance of situating a society’s cultural and artistic expressions within a historical context.
  • Examine the influences of intellectual, religious, political, and socio-economic forces on social, cultural, and artistic expressions.
  • Identify major historical developments in world cultures during the eras of antiquity to the Renaissance
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in the study of world cultures.
  • Write clearly and concisely about world cultures using proper writing mechanics.

Infographic

Please see attached memo and create he basis for an infographic, or informative graphic. Your infographic will combine graphics with text to accomplish one of three goals for a lay audience:

  • define the term,
  • describe a concept, or
  • detail a process for.

A draft of the infographic will be submitted to the instructor and included in the Proposal as a work sample.

A revised version of the infographic will be incorporated with the upcoming instructional document assignment, as either an accompanying graphic or as the canvas for the instructional document.

AUDIENCE AND PURPOSE

Your infographic will define a technical term, concept, or process for a lay audience.

Assume that your readers have a basic, well-rounded education, but no special knowledge of your field, except what they have been able to pick up from popular media.

OBJECTIVES AND REQUIREMENTS

To complete this assignment, you must compose an infographic that:

  • Provides a clear sentence definition of the term, concept, or process from the extended definition memo that appeals to laypeople
  • Gives readers a reason for wanting to know what you are telling them
  • Includes multiple graphics, such as:
    • Icons
    • Illustrations
    • Photos
    • Charts or graphs (or other form of visualized data)
  • Explains the term, concept, or process and in what context it is used;
  • Presents information clearly and logically for the audience it is intended for.
  • Employs background information your readers can reasonably be assumed to have, but make sure that a correct understanding of the material does not rely on their knowing something that they may very well not know. (In other words, if your definition relies heavily on the readers’ understanding of some additional material, make sure your design explains that material unless it is common knowledge for those readers.)
  • Incorporates a composition of your design that applies at least one of the following definition techniques:
    • examples,
    • partition,
    • principle of operation,
    • comparison and contrast,
    • analogy,
    • negation,
    • Etymology/history of the term.

**Do not simply submit an image with a caption. Thoughtfully compose a design that incorporates design elements and principles to convey information.**

FORMAT

  • Document must be submitted as a PowerPoint or Image file with one of the following extensions: .ppt, .pptx., .png., or .jpeg
  • You may construct the infographic element using the word processing, presentation, or graphic design program of your choosing
    • Formatting and design of the infographic version is at your discretion.
    • Contact me if you need assistance with document design for the infographic component.
  • Sourced images may be incorporated into the design, but these images MUST be accurately cited using APA or MLA documentation style. Please contact me if you have any questions about documentation.

The county commission of Ralston County is proposing to create an annual youth conference and fair, which would offer leadership and technology training as well as opportunities for the local youth to make new friends and share skills. Outside corporations and government agencies at all levels of government would be able to purchase vendor space to promote their products and/or recruit students for employment. To do this, the County will need to sign a long-term lease for a large 30-acre piece of property, and construct a moderate size convention complex on that property. The convention facilities will be built out over a 20-year period. This will require substantial startup costs, which they hope to recoup through student registration fees, vendor registration fees and vendor sponsorship fees. Before agreeing to this project, the County needs to do a first-level estimate of whether this venture will be worthwhile doing, from a financial perspective.

  • Personal Application: Think about your own background? What significant experiences shaped your values? How do those values play out today in the workplace, and how do they determine the decisions you make each workday? How do they affect you in terms of your leadership approach and effectiveness? If you are not working, how might these experiences affect you as a future worker or leader?
  • Global Application: Consider you are a leader and conduct business in a global community. You are responsible for all decision making in the organization. How would you ensure your decisions are considerate of the ethical and social cultures in which you conduct business?

assignment on Reading and study strategy class

Hi

the assignment is 4 parts…but first start with explanations and what the assignments going to be about.

Part One: Cornell Notes

Cornell Notes are the Miley Cyrus of study strategies—people either love them or hate them. If you are unsure of what Cornell Notes are, I suspect you like them and will start using them. If you know what they are, it’s possible that you are already using them. However, if you have had the experience of being forced to use Cornell Notes in the past, such as in middle school, I hope you will do your best to forget those experiences and stay open to the benefits of Cornell Notes from the more mature point where you now are as a student.

Before you get any farther, have a look at your LASSI scores from Module One. There is not a note taking category, but elements of note taking and working with notes are included in the categories of selecting main ideas, self testing, and study aids. To see the connection, follow this link to the power point description of LASSI areas and review the descriptions of these three categories.

As we’ve seen in the CPEL videos and the learning styles materials, reading and re-reading information is not the best way to learn. Therefore, when it’s time to study from your notes, it helps to set them up in a way that you can work to actively recall the information. Let’s start with an image of Cornell Notes.

You’ll notice that the notes on the right-hand side probably look a lot like the notes you are currently taking. The only difference is that on the left-hand side, questions and key words have been included. This allows the note taker to go back and easily find information, and, more importantly, to turn the notes into a study guide. When it’s time to review, just cover up the right-hand column, and use the terms and questions on the left-hand side to quiz yourself.

Here are two videos to watch on note taking. The information from these videos will be included on 5 of the module’s quiz questions. You will also be taking Cornell Notes as part of this week’s assignment.

The first video is a general introduction to strategies for improved note taking, including Cornell. The video may not be correctly captioned, so I have created a transcription, too.

The second video deals specifically with the Cornell method. This one is also not correctly captioned, so here is a transcript for the second video.

Part Two: Taking Notes Electronically or by Hand

Many students now bring their laptops to class and take notes electronically. Recent research indicates that this may not be the most effective strategy.

First, read this article from Scientific American that describes the research.

Next, you will read the original research journal article of this study about laptops and note taking. Before you begin the article, be prepared for a more difficult reading, since this is the original research that was published by researchers. If you have not read a research article like this before, don’t expect to understand or even read everything. The most important parts to read are the abstract, the introduction, and the general discussion. Much of the rest of the article can be skimmed. If you have never read a research article before or find them confusing, have a look at this link for the best way to read research articles. To read the research article, follow this link to the research article, but if you are not already logged into the SCSU library’s page, you may need to do that first since it’s in SCSUs library database.

Part Three: CPEL Video 3

Here are the links for your CPEL Video 3. This video will form the basis for one of the discussion questions and for 3 of the quiz questions.

Part Four: Your Assignments

Your assignments for Module Four will be to take Cornell Notes, evaluate their effectiveness, assess your note taking strengths and weaknesses, and consider the benefits of taking notes electronically or by hand.

Assignment One: Cornell Notes

After you view the videos and workshop to recognize the skills needed for effective note taking and the Cornell method, your first assignment will be to create a set of notes using the Cornell format and appraise their value.

If you are currently taking a lecture class, take notes from a day or two of lecture. If you are not taking a lecture class, choose a TED talk video that interests you and take notes on that lecture. If you can’t decide, I recommend this lecture about whether automation will take away all our jobs. All TED Talks are captioned and have the transcripts available.

Since taking notes by hand has been shown to have more benefits than taking them electronically, I encourage you to do so. You may print out the special paper designed for the Cornell format, or just draw a line down your paper. This site lets you customize all kinds of elements of the notes page, including lines, backgrounds, and page orientation. If you take the notes by hand, you should submit about 4 pages of notes. To submit them, you can scan the pages and submit a .pdf file, or, if you have a smartphone, take a photo of the notes one page at a time, email the photos to yourself, and use the .jpeg from the email to upload a .jpeg for each page of notes. Please be sure the writing is legible, and don’t use laptop cameras to take the images, since they are usually not of a high enough quality and often reverse the image.

If you wish to take the notes using Microsoft Word, that is a second, although less preferred, option. The easiest way to do it is to use a table. Select “insert” and “table” and make a two-column table with at least 10 rows. Move the line dividing the columns to the left so the right-hand side is larger. Then, place each new idea in a row of the table. If you don’t make multiple rows, you will have a terrible time with the formatting and spacing of the left-hand side. To add a new row as you type the notes, just hit the return key when you are in the last row. If you type your notes, you should submit about 2 pages of notes.

Your notes should be 2 pages long if typed and 3 pages if written by hand. With your notes, I will be looking for three things. First, it needs to have two columns, or it is not Cornell. Second, I will be looking for advanced qualities of the notes, including a system of showing levels of information, whether it is an outline, indentations, or bullets. Finally, I will be looking for “A level” of notes as described in the Cornell video.

Grading Rubric:

The Cornell Notes will be graded holistically and worth 10 points. These are the areas I will be evaluating:

  • Did you use the two-column Cornell Notes system? (Failure to use two columns will result in a grade of a 0 on the assignment.)
  • Did your notes meet the length requirement?
  • Were your notes organized, clear, and indicating levels of information?
  • Did the notes have “A level” qualities?

Assignment Two: Cornell Evaluation

After completing the Cornell Notes, please complete a paragraph of at least 75 words describing your skills as a note taker, including strengths and weaknesses and ways to improve these weaknesses. Also include an appraisal of the value of Cornell Notes.

Here is how the paragraph will be evaluated:

Did you describe your skills as a note taker, including strengths and weaknesses?

2 points

Did you appraise the value of Cornell Notes?

3 points

Other considerations that will be reflected in overall grade:
Was your writing free of grammatical and stylistic errors?

5 points

Assignment three: Taking Notes Electronically Versus by Hand

First read this research article that differentiates notes taken electronically versus by hand. Then, in a paragraph of at least 75 words, reflect on the differences between taking notes by laptop of by hand. You have the freedom to decide what differentiations you wish to make.

Here is how the paragraph will be evaluated:

Did you effectively differentiate on notes that are taken electronically versus by hand?

5 points

Other considerations that will be reflected in overall grade:
Was your writing free of grammatical and stylistic errors?

5 points

Assignment four: Discussion

As usual, we will have two discussion questions this week, and each one is worth 5 points.

DQ One:

In the video, Dr. Chew descried four principles for deep processing: elaboration, distinctiveness, personal, and appropriate retrieval and application. Select one of these principles and describe how it relates to an academic situation you have experienced in college, either in a positive or a negative way.

If this is your first college class, or if you simply prefer, pretend like you are taking an art history class and completing this first assignment about Maya versus Teotihuacan art. Describe how one of the principles for deep processing would relate to successfully completing the project. You may need to conduct a web search on key terms to get a full understanding of the assignment.

DQ Two:

Read this column entitled “Why I Hate Cornell Notes,” which was written by a high school student for her school newspaper. Pretend that this student is entering SCSU in the fall, and you are in a student organization with her. What would be your response if she shared with you with these complaints about Cornell Notes?

Discussion#5

In the United States, all medical malpractice law is litigated and resolved in one of two ways. Each state will choose which theory (only one theory is chosen to be used by each state) used to resolve all cases within their jurisdiction. The first is the theory of contributory negligence. In this theory, the original law (and ancient law derived from the Common law of England) states that, under this doctrine, if the patient contributed at all to the harm caused by the medical professional, then the patient was not entitled to any compensatory relief. In other words, no suit for damages would be allowed against the medical provider. This theory insisted that only a completely blameless patient should have recourse against a medical professional.

The second theory is the theory of comparative negligence. This is the more modern doctrine. Under comparative negligence all injured patients could still file a malpractice suit even if the patient contributed to the harm caused. Therefore, if a doctor was 50% at fault and the patient was 50% at fault, the patient could still recover 50% of the damages from the doctor. Each state decides if there is a maximum percentage for which the plaintiff can be responsible and still receive compensation.

Set forth two strengths and two weaknesses for each of these theories and choose which one you believe to be the most just and why.
