Bere’s Hammond (Holiday) According to the track Holiday by Bere’s Hammond, I agree with his opinions about the world today. If every nation, race, and culture came together today as one and discussed the conditions of the world, continued to try, and lifted every voice it would create a better society. For example, We can help one another physically, emotionally and financially in many ways like war, trade, and also the shortage of money .Each and every individual is still a human being in which they should have a right to voice their opinion, even though it would be impossible to please everyone it is possible to agree upon one thing and make a difference In my opinion, Racism still exists and people as individuals continue to view one another by either a person’s nationality or race It Is very irrational and shows nothing but ignorance because everyone is different within, it wouldn’t hurt to learn about someone else’s back round you can explore new things. Furthermore, Bere’s also mentioned speaking about your situations. Everything that is held back inside of you can only harm you internally ,if you express about your inner feelings to another it can really help, others may even feel the same way and you can come to a conclusion and feel better. In Conclusion, if every individual set aside prejudgment and welcomed one another happily no matter who or what nationality we can save the holiday and fulfill it with joy and happiness instead of negativity and…...

Benton was informed she would become a product manager within 2 to 3 years, yet was not informed of the importance of her performance in the first year. She was informed that the product manager’s responsibility was to groom his or her associates to be “promotable”. Benton was assigned Deborah Linton as her Product Manager who informed her of her dislike for MBA’s with “MBA’s act like they know a lot more than they do” and “the only way to learn is on the job and your formal education won’t help you.” Ron Scoville, the Associate Product Manager and team member, shared the same sentiments with Lisa. Linton made it clear to Lisa that she was ‘going to have to prove herself like everyone else.” There would be no special treatment because she was a Harvard MBA. Linton informed her she should feel free to stop by her office if she had any questions and she was to report to her and not to Ron Scoville, the Associate Product Manager and team member.   She also was informed she would get objectives for her job which she never received and later learned Linton was recently promoted and it was thought that Linton......

Leonardo's Mona Lisa

...Leonardo's Mona Lisa AR115 Introduction to the Visual Arts Park University Mr. Trevis Martin December 2, 2012 Leonardo's Mona Lisa The tetragrammaton simply means "four letters," YHWH; which stand for the name of the God of Israel, and means "to be." The proper pronunciation and spelling was too holy to say or write that it was lost centuries ago and cannot be found in any ancient writings; therefore, Israelis substituted the name to Yahweh, or Jehovah, but only pronounce and write Adoni which means Lord. There are some things that cannot be explained, and this sort of story is not only found in religion, it can also be found in art. She is called The Mona Lisa, a most-beautiful "strange image [that] strikes at the subconscious with a force that is extremely rare in an individual work of art" (Sassoon, 2003). Her popularity is beyond comprehension and colors and lines too deep to express, and one's words are lost when one looks at her gaze. Paul Zelanski and Mary Pat Fisher (2010) explain that "the word 'art' cannot be found in any English dictionary before 1880 and that even when it did appear it was used primarily with reference to painting" (Zelanski & Fisher, 2010, p.13). Furthermore, the Oxford Dictionary defines art as "the skillful production of the beautiful in visible forms" (qtd. in Zelanski & Fisher 13). This almost sounds like an oxymoron; "beautiful in visible forms." How can one produce beauty, or better yet, how can......

Lisa Benton Case

...assistant product manager at Home Care, Lisa Benton has not been able to combine her inner strengths and her network map in order to establish good basis to launch her career. Whereas she has been hired for her enthusiasm and her academic background, she did not demonstrate neither of these qualities, mostly because of a failure to clearly identify the stakeholders and the interests of all the members of her professional network. Consequently, she could not build an effective network. First of all, at Home Care we have in the one hand the “MBAs” which is the predominant and most powerful stakeholders (overrepresented in the organization) and in the other hand, Scoville and Linton’s group which is a little isolated network based essentially on friendship (or more?) and hard work (task-related network). For example, Scoville is a task oriented person who communicates only for work-related problems and Linton seems to value more relationship, trust and hard work. Lisa perceived her bosses’ attitude as lack of interest or hostility whereas it is partly a lack of motivation due to absence of promotion and decreasing recognition of their skills in the organization that has resulted in isolation. Also, she perceived her direct managers only through the lens of formal hierarchy as legitimate and reward powers whereas they have other strengths that she could have noticed and valued like expertise and commitment to the company. Furthermore, Lisa has successfully got along with the......

Mona Lisa

...Brittney Reed Professor Turner AR115 27 September 2014 The Mystery Surrounding Mona Lisa Mona Lisa is one of Leonardo da Vinci’s most poetic and famous pictures he painted. Painted in 1503-1505 with oil on a panel, the meaning of this most recognized painting in the world has left many wondering about the portrait’s meaning and why it has changed over time (Harris & Zucker, 2012). The evolution around the Mona Lisa painting has grown over the centuries after it was completed. This and many other of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting and writing has became ever so popular because of who the artist is and the detail and technique that he used in them. Another reason the it fascinates me and many others is when you are looking into her eyes they seem to follow you where ever you move. This gives an erie feeling that people in the recent decades thrive for in today’s decade. The painting is also very mysteries. Who is Mona Lisa? Who was she posing for? What is the little smirk on her face? As most of the portraits that were see in that era there are no smiling faces, a blank look if you will. Many say that Mona Lisa is the wife of a Florentine merchant and the painting was intended for her husband (Harris & Zucker, 2012). After Leonardo had finished the painting it was never given to the husband and Leonardo decided to keep it for himself as he went to work for the King of France, Francis I and why that is to this day remains a mystery (Harris & Zucker,......

Mona Lisa

...I believe the primary reason that the Mona Lisa has become so famous is that fact that the painting holds a mystery that no one can prove 100 % proof of how, when, why it was created. Many rumors has been created of her making saying that it was Leonardo Da Vinci dressed as a woman in a self-portrait, others has stated that a man by the name of Franceso del Glocondo, a wealthy silk merchant was the husband of Mona Lisa and he paid Leonardo Da Vinci to paint her, others believe that it could even be his mother. Regardless of the reason why and who she is there is something that makes people overly intrigued by her plain and awkward beauty. I learned through my reading that Leonardo Da Vinci was infamous for not completely a piece of art and Mona Lisa almost didn’t get complete. In Florence, Italy on 1503 or 1504 Leonardo Da Vinci began painting The Mona Lisa. But he did not finish it until 1519 in France when the king had him to stay in 1516, so that he can finish The Mona Lisa. His oil painting of the unknown woman caught a lot of attention over the past 500 years. Looking at the Mona Lisa a person can see many things she is trying to say without moving her lips. Leonardo Da Vinci created this piece of create with facial features that say a lot without saying anything. Her eyes speaks of flirtation, calmness, investigation, along with a smirk. The eyes of the portrait is amazing to see how it can look at you without blinking. Even the fact that he didn’t create her......

Lisa Benton

... Lisa Benton Case Study Executive Summary Lisa Benton is a Harvard MBA who had completed a very successful internship with Right-Away stores, a convenience store chain in Chicago. Although she was offered an attractive position at Right-Away, Benton chose to accept a lower-paying, more junior position at Houseworld because of the company’s greater prestige and reputation for offering excellent classical marketing training in a structured environment. Benton had met several members of the Houseworld product management team during the recruiting process and been impressed with how knowledgeable and friendly they were. However, Benton’s first day of work as an assistant product manager in the Home Care division did not match her expectations. Benton’s new boss, Deborah Linton, offered a cool reception. Linton made clear during their first meeting with Benton that she didn’t like Harvard MBAs and gave the impression that she had no time to help train and orient her new employee. Instead, Benton was shown around by Linton’s other report, associate product manager Ron Scoville, who struck her as condescending and also derisive of MBAs. During her first weeks at Houseworld, Benton developed a good relationship with others in the company. However, she continued to be frustrated by her team. She was consistently relegated to analysis and excluded from strategy and, as such, felt that her talents and training were not being fully utilized. Benton was also troubled by her boss’s lack......

...system in place. She KEEPS MODIFYING and MONITORING continuously. *  *The case also stresses the importance of good team design similar to the C&S Wholesale Grocers* Lisa Benton Case Summary In my opinion, the Lisa Benton case study is really not that important (sorry). The major point is boss-subordinate relationships and, by extensions, interpersonal relationships period. Regardless, the story is kind of interesting (and not because it was the only case study in which major characters were more than likely getting it on). The summary is as follows: while Lisa Benton she attended Harvard Business School, worked as the first female manager for Right-Away stores, a company where she won accolades for her “roll-up-your sleeves” approach and charmed the president, Scott Kingston, so much that he offered her a full-time job at Right-Away stores after she graduated. However, she was also offered a job at Houseworld’s Care Division, appealing because of its classical and famous excellent marketing training. She chose to turn down the higher salary and a bigger position partly because of her worries of taking on too much responsibility and partly because of Right-Away’s rundown warehouse and lack of other female manager and, instead, joined Houseworld. At Houseworld, she was charmed by the friendly and professional people she met initially but ended up under Deborah Linton, who immediately made it clear she was biased against Harvard MBAs. The friendly people she had......

Mona Lisa

...November 29, 2015 Exam 4 Extra Credit I chose an advertisement for ANT which is an organization that helps treat cancer patients for free in their homes. In the advertisement they show the Mona Lisa without any hair on her head. The classical painting, Mona Lisa, is supposed to represent the most beautiful woman back when the painting was created by Leonardo Da Vinci. The Mona Lisa is said to be the most talked about and visiting painting out of any other painting. Although it is not one of the most well-done, outstanding paintings of all time, it is still obviously very popular and captured the eye of hundreds of thousands of people. The Mona Lisa is said to be the icon of the renaissance. Overall, the Mona Lisa is supposed to be a woman who many people find gorgeous and has an unforgettable gaze in her eyes. It leaves the people looking at it wondering exactly what she is looking at or even where she is looking. Her calm hands seem to show she is at ease, yet her eyes have many different interpretations to many different people. Some people think she is comfortable and happy, while others think she is sort of sad or in pain about something. There are hundreds interpretations about the Mona Lisa. The only change that the advertiser made to the classic painting of the Mona Lisa is he or she took away her hair. Everything else about her including her dress, hands, posture, even the background is all kept the exact same as the original. Nothing at all had changed......

One of the most famous paintiin the world, the Mona Lisa, was stolen from Louvre Museum. The man who stole the painting was named Vincenzo Peruggia. This is a large crime and no one would ever think that Peruggia would be able to do something like this. He is a small, uneducated, working man.

They hid the fact that her father was a theft for 18 years and never told her about anything. She only knew small things about the theft that she had heard. She says that the reason her father did it was for patriotism from his country and wanted to get revenge on his co-workers that would make fun of him and call him “macaroni” because he was from Italy and that’s all she really knew about him. Peruggia stole the Mona Lisa on August 11, 1911. He stole the painting in for two whole years. He got into the museum with his old work because they were cleaning the pictures glass.

Counseling Approach to Lisa

I will be talking about Lisa’s family background and her current situation as well. I will pick a counseling theory and briefly describe this theory in detail.

Case Conceptualization Lisa is a 32-year-old mother of two twin boys age eight. Lisa suffers from a long history of substance and alcohol abuse. Lisa has been using since the age of 12 and her addiction has only progressed worse over the years. Lisa has experimented with a variety of drugs from marijuana, cocaine and eventually to heroin.

Lisa Benton Case Study

...Lisa Benton an assistant product manager at Houseworld, a leading consumer products company. Upon the start of her career at Houseworld, she has been frustrated by a lack of responsibility, by her poor relationship with her boss and a colleague, and recently, by the negative performance review she received. Initially she is not widely accepted by her team and felt that the lack of responsibility granted to her left her with little room to prosper in the company. Many other factors are also contributing to Benton’s dissatisfaction at Houseworld. She is not receiving the marketing training she was promised and her skills are being underutilized. Strained interpersonal relationships are contributing to this as well. There are three major relationships within the company that shaped Benton’s current state of dissatisfaction. Deborah Linton, Benton’s boss, is the main relationship of focus. Linton failed to establish trust with candor and transparency at Houseworld. This is one of Jack Welch’s eight essential rules in being a great leader. Candor “breaks through political bias,” (Kotter) and Linton failed to do so by allowing her loyalties to Scoville strain the professional relationship between her and Benton, her mentee so to speak. Transparency is defined as “sharing information broadly (Kotter).” By avoiding Benton’s training seminars, she is hoarding necessary information Benton needs to excel within the company. She put her own concerns before that of the company. Because......
