    Literature

    “Eveline,” deal with struggles, losses and failures. write an essay (2.5 pages) discussing the struggles of the main characters and how they succumb to failure and loss. Is their failure the result of their own wrong doing or is it out of their control? Does the society and culture play a role in their loss, or do they have full control over their destinies? Your essay needs to have at least two citations: minimum one citation from the primary text and one citation from a relevant academic article. A one thing that you shouldn’t do is writing a summary, you should not write a summary.

    How would you organize your ideas when writing a literary essay?
    • The introduction should be interesting enough to capture the reader’s attention. Introductions begin with a “hook” or “lead-in.” The hook can be a question, a shocking statement, an anecdote, a famous proverb, a saying, a famous quotations. Depending on the subject matter (topic) you should choose the best way to open your introduction.
    • After the hook, you should develop your introduction more fully by giving a a synopsis of the story you are discussing; giving a historical background of the story or include some information about the author.
    • Body paragraphs should be devoid of vague generalizations, or repetitions. Each body paragraph should be about one and only one aspect of your there is no argument about them. Quotations from the text, dialogues, symbolic elements and similar evidence from the text must be included in the body paragraphs.
    • Conclusions sums up your paper.

    Your job as a critical analyst is to persuade your reader that your interpretation of the story is right. In other words, interpretation is the same as argument and follows the same rules as in an argument essay: claim, evidence, reasoning, and refutation.

    Project 1

     

    Your group has just been hired as the top management team for a midsize firm. The firm has been floundering, market share and profits have dropped, morale is low, and the firm’s stock price is at an all-time low. The board of directors has decided that retrenchment is needed to turn the firm around. Thus, the board fired the old team, hired your team, and gave you total responsibility for the anticipated turnaround. The facts are as follows:

    Your firm has been making home appliances, such as refrigerators, stoves, and microwaves.
    Ten years ago, the company had 20 percent of the market, annual revenues of $500 million, and a workforce of 15,000 employees.
    Today, the company has 7 percent of the market, annual revenues of less than $300 million, and a workforce of 14,500. (No new employees have been hired in 3 years, but few have left.)
    As a first step, the board wants the workforce trimmed, product quality improved, and a more effective marketing strategy developed.
    In the long term, the board wants the firm to diversify into other, less competitive markets.
    This week you will analyze what direction the company should take with this additional information:

    Fast forward another five years (10 years from the start of the project):

    Your firm has continued to prosper and has just launched a diversification program.
    The core business now has almost 25% of the home-appliance business, sales are approaching $750 million, and the workforce has grown to almost 20,000 employees.
    As first steps in diversification, the firm has bought another firm that makes home electronics products and is starting its own new small appliances business.

    INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN THE WORKPLACE

    Assignment Overview
    Strong cognitive abilities are usually considered a very important and positive trait to seek when hiring new employees. However, one police department decided not to higher those who scored too high on a cognitive skills exam on the grounds that people who are too intelligent will not be satisfied with their job as a police officer and will end up quitting (Naish, 2013). This of course is a controversial policy that resulted in at least one lawsuit.

    For this assignment we will be looking at individual characteristics that may predict job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and job performance for police officers. Being a police officer is a demanding job that required strong physical capacity, sharp mental capacity to deal with difficult and life threatening situations, and strong interpersonal skills in order to effectively work with the communities they protect and serve. The issue of what traits to look for in police officer recruiting is a controversial one.

    Review the background materials on individual traits, personality, and attitudes such as job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Then read these articles on law enforcement recruitment with the issues in the background materials in mind:

    Naish, R. (April, 2013). Too clever by half. E.Learning Age, 8. [Proquest]

    Means, R., Lowry, K., & Conroy, D. (2011). Hiring: Background investigation, part 3. Law & Order, 59(3), 12-13. [Proquest]

    Reaume, S. (2009). Improved hiring for child protective investigators. Law & Order, 57(2), 19-20,22,24. [Proquest]
    Case Assignment
    Now suppose a police department has hired you as a consultant to come up with an exam to assess personality and other traits of applicants to the department. The department is looking to hire applicants who meet the following criteria:

    Are likely to have strong job satisfaction and organizational commitment to the police department after they are hired.
    Will be able to work effectively under stressful and sometimes life threatening situations, can make good decisions under pressure.
    Will be able to present a positive image of the police department in the communities they serve and maintain strong relations with community leaders.
    Using what you’ve learned in the background about personality traits such as the Big Five Personality traits and factors that influence job satisfaction and organizational behavior, come up with a four to five page paper addressing the following issues:

    Do you think cognitive abilities should be part of the exam? Do you agree with the police department mentioned in Naish (2013) that there should be an upper limit to cognitive abilities, or should the department try to hire those with the highest cognitive abilities? Consider the concepts of ability testing in Chapter 3 of Nair (2010) as part of your answer.
    What personality traits do you think will best predict a police officer’s ability to handle stressful situations in the field and make decisions under stress? Consider the Big Five traits as well as any other personality traits that you read about in Chapter 6 of Nair (2010). Be specific about what traits the department should consider and why these traits will be associated with an ability to work under stress.
    What personality traits will best predict an ability to work cooperatively with their coworkers as well as with members of the community they serve? Again, be specific about which traits the department should consider and why these traits will be associated with a good ability to work with others. Use Chapter 6 of Nair (2010) as your source of information about Big Five and other personality traits to consider.

    INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN THE WORKPLACE SLP

     

    Assignment Instructions
    For the Session Long Project, you will be applying the concepts from the background materials to your own personal workplace experiences. For this assignment, think of two former or current coworkers that had unique personalities. Choose two people that you worked with closely enough that you were able to get a good idea of their personality traits and workplace attitudes.

    Review the main personality traits and attitudes from the background materials, and think about how these apply to your two coworkers. Then write a three page paper addressing the following issues:

    How would you describe the personalities of these two coworkers? Use the Big Five Personality traits and other personality traits discussed in Chapter 6 of Nair (2010) to find the personality traits that best describe your coworkers. You must use specific personality traits that you found in the background readings for your answer.
    How would you describe their workplace attitudes including job satisfaction and organizational commitment? Use the concepts from Chapter 4 of Nair (2010) in your answer.
    Do you think their personality traits impacted their workplace attitudes, or did other factors such as the work environment, job characteristics, etc. have a greater impact on their attitudes?

    Introductory Financial Accounting I

    Winter 2016

    Face-to-face hand-in assignment #7

    Submission Requirements
    ? You must hand in your face-to-face submissions at the start of class. Late submissions will not be accepted.
    ? Face-to-face assignments must be typed.
    ? You must attempt to answer all questions, including any required calculations, in order to receive a passing grade.

    Part I – Metro Financial Statements:
    1. List 2 major stakeholders for Metro and provide what their objectives would be for financial reporting (Pg. 208-214 of text). Make sure you explain why the objective would be relevant to the different stakeholders and keep in mind there maybe more than one objective for each stakeholder.

    2. What is a major constraint for Metro that limits management’s financial accounting choices? Explain why when Metro issues a “rain check” they are not allowed to recognize revenue when the rain check is issued. (Be sure to list the criteria in your response). Hint: a rain check is issued when a customer wants to purchase a good that is on sale but Metro does not have the item in stock. Hence Metro will issue a rain check to allow the customer to purchase the item for the sale price at a later date.

    3. Looking at note 10 of the financial statements provide the journal entry to record the sale of the asset for cash assuming the facts given in the note.

    a. Sale of the asset at fair value of $4.6MM at a loss of $0.6MM.
    b. Assume the now the same asset was sold for $6.3MM.

    4. From the above journal entry explain how a journal entry recording revenue differs from the recording of a gain.

    Part II: (There are 2 questions in total)

    Q1

    For each of the following land sales, prepare the journal entry that would be recorded and indicate the amount of the gain or loss that would be reported. Assume that in each case the sale of land isn’t a main business activity of the entity.

    a) Land costing $500,000 is sold for $410,000.
    b) Land costing $1,300,000 is sold for $4,000,000.
    c) Land costing $1,800,000 is sold for $1,800,000.

    Q2

    Sleep R us Ltd. (Sleep R Us) is a manufacturer of bedroom furniture. In November 2015, Sleep R Us received an order for 15,000 sets of specially designed furniture from a large retail chain. The contract guarantees the price the retailer will pay and the quantity it will buy from Sleep R Us. The furniture is to be delivered monthly, in equal quantities each month, beginning in March 2016 and continuing through August 2017. The retail chain is to pay Sleep R Us within 45 days of receiving each shipment. Because Sleep R Us had excess capacity in its plant when the contract was signed it decided to manufacture the full order as soon as it could. Sleep R Us began producing the furniture in January 2016 and completed making the 15,000 sets in November 2016.

    Required:
    a) Identify the different possible critical events that could be used to recognize revenue.

    II. Evaluation of management by outside shareholders
    III. Income smoothing
    IV. Managing earnings to increase income
