Reflect on the assignment in general. Was it difficult? Easy? Thought provoking? Without indicating which postsecret was yours, did you have a difficult time coming up with a contribution to this community-based art project? Question 2-After viewing the images, what themes emerge for you? What is NOT present that you would have thought to have been included? How does this reflect how we experience the “gender order”?

Question 1-Reflect on the assignment in general. Was it difficult? Easy? Thought provoking? Without indicating which postsecret was yours, did you have a difficult time coming up with a contribution to this community-based art project? Question 2-After viewing the images, what themes emerge for you? What is NOT present that you would have thought to have been included? How does this reflect how we experience the “gender order”?

Instructions
We were told to do an assignment based on our feelings or something that kind of annoyed us as an individual based on our sexuality. Some of the pictures on the uploaded materials are the cards that we did for the assignment. It reflects our thoughts of what type of gender we are and what was something we did not like being in that type of gender. So the instruction following that assignment is to write up a paper based on that assignment, answering these questions:
Question 1-Reflect on the assignment in general. Was it difficult? Easy? Thought provoking? Without indicating which postsecret was yours, did you have a difficult time coming up with a contribution to this community-based art project?

Question 2-After viewing the images, what themes emerge for you? What is NOT present that you would have thought to have been included? How does this reflect how we experience the “gender order”?

Question 3: After I put the cards up, I received a request to relocate some cards that dealt with sexual assault as they were deemed upsetting displayed in such a very public manner. Rather than relocating the cards, and to maintain their collective integrity, I decided that the only accommodation I was willing to do was to put “Trigger Warning: Sexual Violence” cover sheets on those cards thought upsetting. How do you feel about this accommodation? Does it say something about our culture and how we deal with the everyday nature of gender violence?

Question 4: Finally, relate this project to one of my favourite quotes by Clark Kerr: “The goal of the university is to make students safe for ideas, not ideas safe for students.

Hyundai Case Report:

Please answer the following three questions in an effective manner.

////1. What were the obstacles or challenges (both internal and external) that HMC had to deal with in the Chinese market? Discuss at least three.

////2. What factors or conditions made Beijing Hyundai to enter the Chinese market with Sonata, which was considered a luxury vehicle? Discuss at least two.

////3. What contributed to the early success of Beijing Hyundai? Discuss at least three.

Kev’s Autoworks and the marking guide

PLEASE read the case Kev’s Autoworks and the marking guide and follow the following format:

Table of Contents
AUTOGENERATE this – Learn how to customise headings so that you can autogenerate this. It is numbered in ROMAN NUMERALS – eg ii or iii.

Executive Summary
This section should comprise a brief overview of the case, giving a brief background of the current situation to set the scene for the report and noting any important assumptions made. (You will not have all the information you would like – so you may need to make some assumptions). As well as this, you should give a synopsis of your case report, outlining the major problems identified and the recommendations that have been made in the report. This should be NO more than one page double spaced. The executive summary should be on its own page. It is numbered in ROMAN NUMERALS – eg ii or iii.

1.0 Problem Identification and Analysis
In this section you should identify and analyse all the major problems in the case in behavioural terms, ie. in management terms (it is not a marketing or an accounting case). Try to get to underlying causes of problems, not just symptoms. Seek advice from your tutor on the layout of this information. You should link each problem identified to relevant theory and also to actual evidence from the case. Remember you MUST integrate theory and reference all non- original work. Use Headings and subheadings. The page numbers begin with 1, 2, …

2.0 Statement of Major Problems
In most case studies you will identify a number of problems – too many to actually ‘solve’ in the number of words allowed. Hence it is crucial to make it very clear which are the major two or three problems or key issues that must be solved first. Therefore this section is just a short concise statement of the problems you are going to solve in the remainder of the case. Half a page is adequate. Having once identified the key problems, you can continually check back to ensure that you are actually attempting to solve them and not some other minor problems you identified. This section is crucial to a good case report.

3.0 Generation and Evaluation of a Range of Alternative Solutions
While most problems will have a very large number of possible solutions it is your task to identify and evaluate a number of the more appropriate (at least 2-3 for each major problem identified). Each alternative solution should be briefly outlined and then evaluated in terms of its advantages and disadvantages (strong and weak points).

Note: You must evaluate alternatives. It is not necessary to make a statement in this section as to which alternative is considered best – this is the next section. Do not integrate theory in this section and do not recommend theory. Practical solutions to the problems are required.
4.0 Recommendations
This section should state which of the alternative solutions (either singly or in combination) identified in section six is recommended for implementation. You should briefly justify your choice, explaining how it will solve the major problems identified in section six. Integration of relevant theory is essential here to make the justifications for your recommendations credible.
5.0 Implementation
In this section you should specifically explain with a series of action steps how you will implement the recommended solutions. Theory cannot be implemented; you must translate it into actions, as usually a number of people will be affected by what is recommended. Remember if a recommended solution cannot be realistically implemented, then it is no solution at all. The section should also have sufficient detail so that we do not have to refer to the case study report at all – ALL recommendations must have an IMPLEMENTATION schedule.
An example:
A meeting must be held as soon as possible to explain to employees the reason for the proposed changes and other feedback.
The action steps are: WHO: CEO
WHAT:
– walk the affected managers through the key findings of the review and explain objectively the outcomes of the review.
– Clearly articulate the key performance indicators that are required i.e. – staff satisfaction, customer satisfaction, staff turnover.
WHEN/WHERE: 29th Aug 2014 / Melbourne office
HOW: CEO to arrange a meeting to explain the reasoning of the review to affected managers.
COST:
– Relocation expenses
– recruitment costs
– redundancy costs
OR if you are going to use a TABLE (if you are using a table, the words in the table are NOT included in your word count):
-please better use word to express then use a table in the appendix

Appendices (if any)
Include any tables or diagrams etc that would add value to your case study report. Ensure that it is referenced accordingly and that it is referred to in the discussion.
Reference List
This will contain an alphabetical list of all the references you have cited in the body of the report. Do not include details of any sources you have not used. Ensure the style used is correct and consistent with the APA system which is the required format for Business & Economic students. Make sure you consult the Q- manual if you are uncertain how to do it correctly.

Some people see fashion as a form of self-expression, while others see it as an oppressive socializing force – especially for women, who the critics of fashion claim must always follow gender codes in their dress. The Content Guides for this module provide a historical perspective on the ways fashion reflected women’s roles in American history

Objective: To understand several different viewpoints about how fashion can be a form of self-expression, but can also be interpreted as restrictive or oppressive, especially when it comes to gender roles, and to understand historical examples that can support each viewpoint.

Some people see fashion as a form of self-expression, while others see it as an oppressive socializing force – especially for women, who the critics of fashion claim must always follow gender codes in their dress. The Content Guides for this module provide a historical perspective on the ways fashion reflected women’s roles in American history. Your task for this discussion is to conduct research to find examples of men’s fashion in American history. How has mens’ fashion been reflective of men’s freedom of self expression, or lack of freedom? Do you think fashion has liberating or oppressive for men? Please remember, this is your chance to reference material in the online Content Guides or reading to support your answer, and you must provide the source of your research as well. In their zeal to discuss fashion, students sometimes forget this is a history course, so please remember historical examples and examples from the course material, including the Content Guides, help make a strong discussion posts!

Changes After the Civil War

Dress Reform

The struggle for women’s suffrage began in earnest after the Civil War. Although it took decades for women to win the right to vote, it took just as long for them to be free from what some might call the tyranny of fashion. In the 1800s, many women wore corsets with bone or steel stays to create a slim silhouette. Although it was debated how harmful corsets were to women’s health, “tight lacers” choose a fashionable look over comfort and health. During certain time periods, men also wore corsets to achieve a slim look. Women in the 1800s also wore a heavy load of clothing that included layers of petticoats that reached to the floor.

In the mid-1800s, women’s rights activist Amelia Bloomer wanted more freedom of movement. She wanted women’s clothing to be comfortable and functional and she promoted a pair of pantaloons (full-legged pants) to wear under a shorter skirt, which had been designed by another women’s rights proponent, Elizabeth Smith Miller. Although actress Fanny Kemble wore the style in public, the campaign to promote these “Turkish trousers” or bloomers was ridiculed.

Women continued to wear full skirts, although eventually a hoop skirt was invented that made the layers of petticoats unnecessary. The hoop skirt was a frame that held the skirts ballooning out from the woman’s body. Although lighter and more comfortable for women, it took up a great deal more space and inhibited movement through doorways. Finally, a foldable hoop skirt was invented that could be collapsed so the wearer could pass through doorways comfortably.

The shirtwaist dress was not known as “dress reform,” but it was a major innovation in women’s dress and became incredibly popular. It was specifically adapted for women working in factories who had little time for the arduous task of cleaning clothes. The outfit included an overblouse that could be cleaned separately from the rest of the clothing. It was also shorter than previous skirts (above the ankle) and the skirt was slimmer to allow greater movement. Shirtwaist dresses were mass-produced and affordable for working women and popularized by images of the Gibson Girl drawn by Charles Dana Gibson.

The New Woman

Gibson was an illustrator for many popular magazines in the 1890s and early 1900s, including Colliers, Harpers Monthly, and The Century. His delicate, beautiful Gibson girl almost always wore a shirtwaist, indicating that she was self-supporting and self-sufficient. She was often drawn biking or sporting golfing clothes, or enjoying the presence of a young man. Although this New Woman appeared sophisticated and firmly middle class, she made the shirtwaist popular for all classes. Ironically, although she was depicted with very Anglo features, even though most working women were immigrants.

PART 2:

The objective of this discussion is to get you thinking creatively about how clothes create messages and meaning.

Most of you are probably familiar with the children’s story Little Red Riding Hood. You can review it here: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/type0333.html

In order to develop an understanding of the ways clothes can communicate messages, this creative discussion allows you to use your imagination to develop a costume for the main character of the little girl in the story. We know the story as describing the girl as wearing a “little red riding hood” made by her grandmother for her. If you were a costume designer, able to costume the girl in any way you wished to convey any message you wished, how would you outfit her? You can use any colors, fabrics, styles, or accessories you wish! Here’s the catch for the outfit however: You need to specify what time period (or time periods!) the outfit refers to and you must explain your choices and what you are trying to convey with your choices for the little girls outfit. In other words, your choices will convey messages that may change the characterization of the girl, the moral of the story and the message conveyed by the story and, you must provide an explanation of what messages the outfit conveys and how it communicates them. Please be historically accurate in the details you choose and your explanation of them.

NOTE: Because there is no right or wrong answer in this project, the ongoing discussion is important, and the ways in which you explain how messages are conveyed by the clothing is important. It isn’t important whether you choose X color or Y color, or A style or B style. What is important is WHY you made that decision. How will these decisions help convey the message you are trying to convey?

Synthesis of Current Management Literature Students will be proficient at carrying out a literature review that addresses a problem or opportunity of importance to the practice of management. Assignment Format and Submission Procedures

Synthesis of Current Management Literature

Students will be proficient at carrying out a literature review that addresses a problem or opportunity of importance to the practice of management.
Assignment Format and Submission Procedures
Your final deliverable will be a 2-3 page analysis, typed and single spaced, in Times New Roman 12-point font, with 1inch margins for each page, due on November 11th.
You will provide me with your research question and the list of at least 5 articles/sources you will review by October 21st.
You will provide me with a draft of the full assignment by October 28th and I will provide you with the feedback (and time) to then provide me with the best possible final deliverable on November 11th.
Provide full citations for all articles you used. Follow the APA citation style for the citations you give.

Assignment objectives: This assignment helps to develop better skills at drawing out key ideas from multiple intellectual works, so that after you are finished you have a more thorough understanding of the subject you are investigating than if you had read only one article
.
Remember the larger purpose; Sample topics – You always have a larger question or issue you are addressing by looking at multiple articles about a topic–possible subjects could be decision making, motivation, performance management, leadership styles, change management, and a variety of other topics covered in the field of management. Always remember your larger purpose because that becomes your compass for organizing your synthesis assignment.

Organizing what you write – A written synthesis of ideas contained in multiple intellectual works is organized around issues; it is not organized around individual articles and it is almost never organized around a single author. An introductory paragraph will lay out the key issues to be examined, and those issues will be areas of agreement and disagreement between the articles you are writing about. That means each paragraph in the body of your written synthesis focuses on one or more issues, as the subject(s) of the paragraph. Finally, a concluding paragraph will summarize the key issues addressed, and explore the (preferably non-obvious) takeaways for managers that you were able to draw out by synthesizing good ideas contained in the articles you read to carry out this assignment.

What not to do for this assignment – Do not look at a set of articles about a given topic as
competitors, from among which you pick one article to serve as your one and only guide.
