Media Summary II

In the week three materials for Accounting 300, one video was assigned for viewing by the students. Below is a summary of the videos.
Balancing the Books: Understanding Financial Reporting The “Balancing the Books” video is a short introduction to the accounting process of financial reporting. In this video a spinoff of who wants to be a millionaire is created in which the contestant is to answer accounting related questions. The video makes use of this trendy television show to keep interest, all while cutting to office scenarios the contestant experienced during his on the job training in order to “recall” the correct answers for the game show. This video emphasizes the four key components of the accounting process. According to the video, these four components are the balance sheet, calculating profits and loss, cash control, and assessing financial performance. The video also covers some topics such as accounting software and different types of businesses. Another topic covered is assessing financial performance through financial ratios using data from financial reports. The three main areas to analyze are profitability, efficiency, and liquidity. Profitability ratios covered were return on assets, return on owners’ investment ratio, the net profit margin ratio, and the gross profit margin. Efficiency was covered by discussing the inventory turnover ratio, and the debtors’ turnover ratio. Measures of liquidity were covered via the working capital ratio, the quick assets ratio, the cash flow ratio, and the interest covered ratio.

...Extra Credit Summary Response to Beauty and the Labor Market It is apparent from this article that physical attractiveness plays a part in the wage earnings of Americans. While evidence is not necessarily strong because of other unknown characteristics, there is enough data to support that good looking people make more money than homely looking people and good looking people are usually placed where their looks are productive. This research supports that there should be more focus on the issue of discrimination whether it be because of race, disability, or level of attractiveness. I believe there is discrimination based on appearance in certain sectors of the workforce. To go even further, I believe some non-traditional sectors may discriminate depending on their location in the U.S. There are certain sectors like education, medicine, and health and wellness that don’t usually discriminate. Other sectors like hospitality and media do discriminate on appearance. The education sector is not usually one to discriminate on physical appearance; intelligence is usually the key factor on whether or not you’re hired and how much your salary is. But in certain schools, administrators may only hire a “certain look”. I guess it depends on the sector you work in whether or not appearance should decide wages/salaries. In a profession with the media, the attractive people get the parts in shows, videos, etc, and are therefore paid based on how much people find them......

...Summary of “Chinese Consumers’ Perception toward Smartphone and Marketing Communication on Smartphone” Huan Chen, Fang Liu, &Tingting DaiInter International Journal of Mobile Marketing, June 1, 2013 Retrieved from: Morris Library Databases/Business and Economics/ Business Source Premier In Chen, Liu, and DaiInter’s article, they use an example to explain how frequently a general Chinese worker uses a smartphone as a necessity in a workday. A research of Chinese smartphone market investigation (2011) illustrates that 1/3 of individuals used their smartphone for multiple activities on a daily basis. Moreover, it was found that the number has increased since the latest report. Consequently, many marketers have used this knowledge to achieve more effective communication between businesses and potential customers as a goal. Since previous research was insufficient, this article focuses on finding out more information.

The way of devices perform affects what kind of media and marketing will see on it. Also, the context of the technological platform changes what kind of advertisement are appropriate.

...Juvenile among young people, as they negotiate the transition from childhood to adulthood in an increasingly complex and confusing world, is the issue that this chapter first examines. Some basic assumptions relating to delinquent behaviour are presented, followed by a description of the various factors underlying or contributing to this phenomenon. Some regional variations are highlighted. Effective approaches and measures for preventing juvenile delinquency are detailed, with particular attention given to the development of educational, professional development and community programmes, improvements in family relations and parenting skills, and the value of restorative justice for both perpetrators and victims. The chapter concludes with a summary and recommendations for future action. Delinquent and criminal behaviour For many young people today, traditional patterns guiding the relationships and transitions between family, school and work are being challenged. Social relations that ensure a smooth process of socialization are collapsing; lifestyle trajectories are becoming more varied and less predictable. The restructuring of the labour market, the extension of the maturity gap (the period of dependence of young adults on the family) and, arguably, the more limited opportunities to become an independent adult are all changes influencing relationships with family and friends, educational opportunities and choices, labour market participation, leisure activities and......

Media Summary

...Media Summary University of Phoenix ACC/300 - PRINCIPLES OF ACCOUNTING Media Summary While starting week one I have to be honest I am a bit intimidated and overwhelmed at just the thought of “accounting”. I am not a fan and never have been. It not only has a lot to do with numbers but there are lots of rules and laws that need to be learned and the risk for not following the guidelines can be very harsh. There were several ways of learning the material in week one. The traditional way of course by reading the chapters and even though this provides lots of knowledge it can also become a bit overwhelming because although I am reading the material and taking in the information its not as easy as it would be if I was watching a video or seeing it in person for myself. That leads us to my second method of learning in our first week of class, which are the videos. I have to say the class discussions are great too because you can view other peoples opinion and takes on what they have learned but videos talk about the material while recapping, showing examples and you’re able to sit back and listen as oppose to reading and then comprehending what you just read. I have also learned that taking notes on what I am watching tends to help too. Creating an outline and recapping the information when the video goes over the summary of the information is a great resource to ensure you didn’t miss any important facts. In the videos we were also shown examples of actual companies and...

...Through the technological development of electronic media and devices, access to entertainment media has become easier than ever before. In addition, these developments have led to an increase in the amount of time individuals spend watching and interacting with screen media, namely films, television and video games. As individuals in society display more aggressive behaviours in everyday life, researchers have endeavoured to identify the extent of how much violence portrayed in the media affects an individual’s thought, feelings and behaviours. While there is still debate as to whether there is a casual link between media and aggression, or that engaging with it maybe be cathartic, it has become evident that exposure to violence portrayed in the media can have short-term and long-term effects. This literature report will concentrate on reports and research focused on the influence of different types of media on aggression and the levels that these can be interpreted psychologically. Influences of Different Media on Aggression Exposure to violent media and the effect that this can have on an individual has been a topic that has interested researchers and society alike for decades. The likelihood of aggressive behaviour, thoughts and emotions is increased with short-term exposure to violent video games and films. (MVC 2012:337; Anderson 2004:2). Reasons provided for this increase by the Media Violence Commission (2012:337-8) and Myers (2013:378) is neural processes......

...Corporate social responsibility: Chiquita maakt recht wat krom was. Of toch bijna. word count: 3372 Among the bloody flies, The United Fruit Company steps ashore, devastating the coffee and the fruits, in its ships that sail like trays taking away the treasure of our drowning lands. Fragment uit United Fruit Company - Pablo Neruda 2 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Wie denkt aan bananen, denkt spontaan aan Chiquita. Chiquita mag dan wel ’s werelds grootste bananenproducent zijn, maar hun verleden was niet altijd even onbesproken. Begin jaren ‘90 werd Chiquita het onderwerp van negatieve berichtgeving in de media wat op zijn beurt leidde tot een enorme reputatieschade. Na de golf van beschuldigingen werd op het einde van 1998 onder leiding van de nieuwe CEO, Steve Warshaw, beslist om een reorganisatie proces door te voeren waarbij Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) één van hun topprioriteiten werd. Ondanks hun inspanningen kon Chiquita zijn negatieve imago niet helemaal van zich afschudden. Onze survey toonde aan dat dit vandaag nog steeds het geval is. De gehanteerde communicatiestrategie kan gezien worden als één van de oorzaken van deze problematiek. Zo opteerde Chiquita om niet onmiddelijk extern te communiceren over hun reorganisatie en initiatieven op vlak van CSR. Pas in 2005 werd besloten om hun prestaties te communiceren met de lancering van een reclamecampagne. De keuze om dergelijke gevoelige kwesties te communiceren door middel van reclame......

...Media Summary John Doe 14 February 2014 ACC/300 Media is defined as, the main means of mass communication (television, radio and newspapers). I used various forms of media during the first week of our accounting class. The first and foremost is the Financial Accounting book. It contains all the information needed pertaining to accounting. The book begins with laying the foundation for accounting and its use within a business organization. As I’ve stated in a few of my posts during the week, before this course I was clueless to the world of accounting. I’ve had my assumptions, all of which are being proven to be wrong. My first assumption is that accountants were all nerds and that it was boring. Which either means I’m a nerd or this is actually an interesting and informative class; I believe it’s the latter. The required readings for the week were chapters one and three, which help lay the groundwork for the rest of the class. I scoured the Internet and found that accounting is everywhere and has been for quite some time. For hundreds of years accounting has been around and used daily. The Venetians started using the double booking method in the 15th century. They used it with the ships and merchants in their harbors in order to keep track of all that was going on. Like I stated in my post, I like history. When I understand the history of something and how it got started, I tend to comprehend the class work more. I also used YouTube, which again has proven its’...

...The Power of Media to influence youth Abstract: This study is based on one of the most common methods of qualitative research – Thematic Analysis. It highlights the extent to which print media is using sexuality to generate interest amongst the youth for a particular product or service.

For this test random sampling method was used, fourteen random newspapers from 30th May 2002 to 10th November 2011 were taken as samples to conduct the test. The study has verified and there are enough grounds on basis of which it can be said that print media or media in general is communicating the messages in a way which has got huge impact on our young generation.
