...only one main problem. We had trouble finding enough working computers for each student to work individually. This was solved simply by having the students work with their assigned partner to complete the teacher-made scavenger hunt. This part of the lesson took only about 20 minutes, which allowed plenty of time to show the class the "Basics of DNA" video, and give them time to start reading from their science books. The second day of this lesson ran very smoothly. The students were contained in the media center and all focused on the Smart Board for the presentation. This I found out was just the calm before the storm. The first day we were in the computer lab was utter chaos. There weren't enough computers working for the number of groups I had. Then not all of the working computers had FrontPage Express on them. Finally to top it all off, most of the students didn't remember to bring their instruction handout from the day before. This meant that I was going to need to do a quick review for the class on how to use FrontPage Express. This took about 30 minutes away from their work time. I think that next time I do the lesson I am going to collect their handouts when we finish in the media center, then pass them out to them once we are in the computer lab. Once we got through the first day, the second one went well. The students were actively working on their projects, but due to time limits the questions they were coming up with were very basic. The students......

...were overcome. Also to look and compare different organisation techniques to the Greenwich Market and a fast-food restaurant and see what changes or suggestions could be made to the next academic year. Theorist’s Positive Teachings According to Gustafson and Kleiner (1994) “High performance teams work in organisations where staffs are just as responsible as managers for the performance of the team.” Belbin’s team role theory states: “A team role is “a tendency to behave, contribute and interrelate with others in a particular way.” Looking at these theories, it clearly states that working within a team, helps get the job done easier and quicker and you will be able to see different skills from the team members as you go along in the group exercise. To see the progress of the team, Belbin organised different team roles to describe the pattern of behaviour that characterises one person’s behaviour in relationship to another in facilitating the progress of a team. These are comprised of: * Action – oriented roles: Shaper, Implementer and Completer-Finisher * People – oriented roles: Coordinator, Team Worker and Resource Investigator * Cerebral – oriented roles: Plant, Monitor Evaluator and Specialist During the tutorial, we were asked to sort these behavioural patterns into the likeliness of our team mates. These are what we came up with. Emmanuel – Implementer: The reason for this was because I felt that I knew how to get things done. I am well disciplined......

...Assignment 7 Modern Portfolio Theory and Investment Analysis, 8th edition, Edwin J. Elton, Martin J. Gruber, Stephen J. Brown, and William N. Goetzmann (John Wiley & Sons, 2011) 1 Frank K. Reilly and Keith C. Brown, “Analysis of Investments and Management of Portfolio,” 9th edition, (South-Western, 2009) Chapter 5 Question 2 Question 10 Question 13 Question 15 2 The answers to the assignment questions In the text, the return due to exchange-rate changes (RX) is shown to be equal to fxt/fxt-1 - 1, where fxt is the foreign exchange rate at time t expressed in terms of the investor's home currency per unit of foreign currency. Let fxt be the exchange rate expressed in terms of dollars and fx*t be the exchange rate expressed in terms of pounds. These two rates are simply reciprocals, i.e., fx*t = 1/fxt. So from the table in the problem we have: Period (1 + RX) (1 + R*X) 3 1 2 3 4 5 (for US investor) 2.5/3 = 0.833 2.5/2.5 = 1.000 2/2.5 = 0.800 1.5/2 = 0.750 2.5/1.5 = 1.667 (for UK investor) 3/2.5 = 1.200 2.5/2.5 = 1.000 2.5/2 = 1.250 2/1.5 = 1.333 1.5/2.5 = 0.600 The total return to a U.S. investor from a U.K. investment is (1 + RX)(1 + RUK)  1; the total return to a U.K. investor from a U.S. investment is(1 + R*X)(1 + RUS)  1. So: Return to U.S. Investor From U.S. Investment From U.K. Investment 10% 15% 5% 12% 6% 7.6% Return to U.K. Investor 4 Period 1 2 3 4 5 Average (0.833)(1.05) (1)(0.95) (0.8)(1.15) (0.75)(1.08) (1.667)(1.1) ...

...to experiment with voice in this poem. Initially, when the first line is read aloud, it produces a rather flatlined emotional effect in the minds of the reader. Nevertheless, as the reader continues reading the poem and notices that the first line is being repeated throughout the poem, the emotions triggered are different each time. For me as the author, the magic of this poem lies in it’s simplistic irony. A prisoner who has a number for his name, has not been home in what seems like ‘eons’ to him, sits back calmly in his cell and reflects on some of the best and worst memories of his life. Of Prisoners & Superheroes 2 Love is Bl(ow)ind Characters: Raf, the boyfriend - An extremely rich guy living in Manhattan. Known among his group of peers for his extravagant partying ways.

I abide by the instructions given and attentive to details. I also am a team player that will make sure all task are resolved and completed. I am dependable with tasks. I maintain a high attendance rate, in both my professional and scholar, environments. When a task must be completed, there is no time to miss any available opportunity to work towards completion. This in turn makes dependability a valuable strength. While attending my last semester to obtain my Associates, I maintained 19 credit hours. In these courses I developed a business plan, a sales presentation, and a marketing portfolio. During this semester I also suffered a miscarriage, however I made sure I came to class in order to complete my tasks at hand. Efficiency plays an important role in assuming a leadership role. I maintain a level of efficiency that will help lead the team towards completion. In the process of maintaining efficiency, I also help the team to eliminate any possibility for error that may need to be corrected upon completion. Maintaining efficiency can also be a time saver. If time is saved daily through efficiency, then the team can be more productive and set higher goals.

Employee Portfolio Motivation Portfolio

...Employee Portfolio Motivation Portfolio Employee Portfolio Motivation Portfolio Being a manager at Riordan Manufacturing, I had my staff take self-assessments in order to see how I can use the material to find ways to manage them effectively. My three employees are a great asset to the company, each having their own performance level and character. After carefully assessing their portfolio, I determined how their character affected their performance of the organization along with that I had also created recommendations on the assessments I received. In this paper, I will determine the right motivational strategy that fits each employee’s characteristics to create an action plan to improve the individual as well as the company as a whole. Motivational Action Plan John M: When I look into the motivational strategy and action plan for John, I would say I could use the arousal strategy. He gets easily psyched up and gets emotionally aroused when we hold motivational meetings. When he gets motivated he then trains his staff in a better mood, gets them pumped up to hit the companies quota in sales for the day and pay period. The overall mood in the office is uplifted and energized to put all their focus into their working performances. By me giving John the encouragement he needs he will not feel I am micromanaging him nor giving him threats on demoting him overall for poor goal achievements. Brooke W: Looking into the motivational strategy that best fits......

How large (if any) were the gains from diversification? Did you diversify? Why or why not? Our strategy was to diversify, but we didn’t manage to, as the price of the assets was extremely high. 6) Calculate the CAPM beta of each asset. Were the asset expected returns proportional to their beta? The market expected return would be the average return of all the traded assets in market. According to CAPM, E(Red) = R(risk free) + B(Red)*(Risk Premium) We have risk free = 0, B(red) = E(Red)/E(M) GAME 1 |   |   | Market expected return | Beta Red | Beta BLUE | -0.155246723 | -2.795595415 | 4.795595415 | GAME 2 |   |   | Market expected return | Beta Red | Beta BLUE | -0.137742471 | 3.508929539 | -1.508929539 | 7) Using Solver, calculate the tangency portfolio.

For supply to equal demand, the tangency portfolio should have the same weights as the aggregate supply of risky assets. Is this true in our market? In this case the supply to equal demand does not have the same weights as...

Last year, when I retired, I invested the full amount in a balanced fund. As it was a diversified fund, I thought that investment in one balanced fund would allow me to diversify my investment and I would get a decent return. Unfortunately, the fund has given negative return in spite of the fact that the stock index during the period has gone up by 5 per cent. Being a retired person, I cannot take much risk but would like to......

...Luke Martino Writing 102 12/9/15 Writing 102 Portfolio Throughout this semester of Writing 102, I have been assigned to write four essays that have stressed the course competencies of subject matter knowledge, writing process knowledge, rhetorical knowledge, genre knowledge, discourse community knowledge, and meta-cognition. Through the process of drafting, editing, and revising three out of the four papers, I think I have been effectively able to absorb three of those course competencies; subject matter knowledge, rhetorical knowledge, and writing process knowledge. The first paper I was assigned to write for Writing 102 was a literacy narrative. For this paper, I was told to write about a past experience that helped influence my current writing and reading qualities. The core competencies that were involved in this essay were writing process knowledge and subject matter knowledge. I used writing process knowledge when I was told to generate ideas for my essay. I began by thinking of five possible ideas and from there I created a brainstorming web out of the two topics I thought would be the most interesting. Shortly after starting, I realized I could only build an effective brainstorming web from one idea. I decided to use the first time I forgot my lines in a play as my main idea for the essay. After I completed the brainstorming web and finished taking notes on what I remembered from the incident I started to follow the writing process that consisted of......

...this concept I used the analogy of a system of gears where Leadership and Influence in a Complex World VCUG 2002 in order to work efficiently there needs to be a fluid movement between the gears: Yashas Alur U4556991 Collaborating and delegating Identifying strengths of other members Your capabilities and strengths Building on the idea of teamwork and working in groups, the week 4 discussions on psychology and leadership led to the introduction of the in-group and out-group concept. The feeling or sense of belonging to a particular group based on friendship, race, gender etc. and the implications of this psychological construct is particularly relevant to me as a student residing in a campus community hall. In a small community such as Fenner Hall it is relatively simple to belong to a particular group and despise some others. The effect of this perception and construct on the leadership capabilities is what appealed to me the most. Although there are benefits of in group membership, it is important to be aware of the negative effects as well. There can be times where conflict between groups can lead to favouritism and making choices that question equality. This situation has occurred before whereby I had to make a difficult choice in either performing my duty as an SR or telling a close friend that he has done the wrong thing. As a leader it is important to promote equality and not show favouritism which leads to you as a leader losing credibility. This......
