... COMPAIRING ARTISTIC PERIODS RENAISSANCE ART AND MANNERISM ART WESTERN GOVERNORS UNIVERSITY IWT1 TASK1 COMPARING ARTISTIC PERIODS The Renaissance period was from roughly the 14th century to the 17th century of the common era (CE) beginning in Italy later spreading throughout Europe. The word Renaissance comes from the original Italian word "Rinascimento" or "rinascere" which means "to be reborn" according to Harper (2012). The influence of the Renaissance movement can be observed in art, music, science, religion, politics, philosophy, literature, as well as other areas of intellectual inquiry. The Renaissance brought about a way of thinking focused on the bettering the person and having a well rounded and educated person in all aspects of the humanities as mentioned earlier. One theory as to the reason for this shift was the devastation brought on by the "Black Death" or Plague causing people to think more about their lives on Earth, as opposed to the afterlife or their spirituality (Wikipedia 2012). One distinguishing trait of Renaissance art is development and use of realistic perspective in paintings and renderings which more closely resemble how a natural scene or surroundings appeared. One such painting that demonstrates this perspective is "The San Zaccaria Altarpiece" by Giovanni Bellini (WGA, 2012 / Struth, 1995). The arch vaults and floor show a realistic perspective of how the Madonna and Saints may have actually appeared. Each of the characters within......

...EGT1 Task 1 – Marginal Analysis The profit calculation of total revenue and total costs is Profit (P) equals total revenue (TR) minus total costs (TC) and focuses on maximizing this difference. Profit will be maximized when the total revenue, or the amount they would receive by selling that particular widget exceeds the total cost, or the costs associated with making this widget by the greatest amount. The greatest difference between these two is considered the profit.The profit calculation of marginal revenue to marginal costs is different where the company will compare the marginal revenue (MR) they would receive from selling one more widget to the marginal cost (MC) of producing that additional widget, and how much cost it would add to the total revenue and total costs. Profit maximization occurs when the marginal revenue received from the widget is the same as the marginal cost of producing the widget.Marginal revenue is calculated by dividing the change in total revenue (TR) by the change in quantity (Q) sold, which is calculated as ΔTR/ΔQ (MR = ΔTR/ΔQ) (Gish). Another way to figure marginal revenue is to take the total revenue of a particular quantity of widgets and subtracting the total revenue of one less widget. Quantity | TR | MR | 0 | $0.00 | $0.00 | 1 | $150.00 | $150.00 | 2 | $290.00 | $140.00 | 3 | $420.00 | $130.00 | 4 | $540.00 | $120.00 | 5 | $650.00 | $110.00 | 6 | $750.00 | $100.00 | 7 | $840.00 | $90.00 | 8 | $920.00 ...

...GKE1 Task1 Student 320979 A. One significant environmental factor in the development of the Egyptian society is the Nile River. The Nile River made it possible for the Egyptian people “to form the first nation by 3000 BCE” (The Gift of the Nile, n.d.) From its rise to its fall the Egyptian civilization depended on the Nile River. The Nile focus created a more positive point of view for Egyptian society “for it could be seen as a source of never-failing bounty to be thankfully received, rather than a menacing cause of floods” (Guisepi, n.d.). The Nile River flooded yearly when the snow melted off of the East African mountains. The violent flow of water would turn up silt, fragments of plants and soil, and deposit them along its banks. The nutrient laden silt allowed the Egyptians to plant and cultivate crops. This natural resource created a vital ecological dynamic that aloud them to build an empire around. The Nile River also provided them a way to transfer goods and connect with others. “These contacts spread certain Egyptian influences, notably in monumental architecture, to other areas” (Guisepi, n.d.). The Egyptian people used the environment along the Nile River to their benefit and not only developed the land, but their culture as well. B. The first reference to charioteers in the civilized world comes from Syria around 1800 BCE (Plubins, 2013). Over the next 400 years the advancement, “either by direct migration of steppe people or by diffusion,” (Plubins, 2013)...

...My Leadership Practices and Future C200 Managing Organizations and Leading People September 19th, 2014 My Leadership Practices and Future This following will outline my personal leadership practices and potential future leadership. To analyze my leadership qualities I will use the Seven Habits Profile and a leadership theory to determine my strengths, weaknesses, and areas of opportunity for improvement. In conclusion, I will determine the best recommendations for long-term improvement as well as SMART goals, or short-term courses of action, for leadership improvement. Seven Habits Profile The Seven Habits Profile revealed that I rank as outstanding in two categories, very good in six categories, and good in just one category. This seems to highlight what I am most exemplary at in terms of leadership, what I am just proficient at, and what presents itself as an opportunity for improvement. The main two strengths include having a work-life balance and being a proactive problem solver. An area of opportunity as indicated by the profile would be having the ability to synergize which is a combination of seeking the views of others and making creative decisions. The two strengths point to qualities I have constantly tried to improve upon. Earlier in my career, I was a bit of a workaholic and tended to bring work home with me. This resulted in a dismal personal life which eventually permeated negativity into my professional life as well. In light......

...A Research Paper on Wal-Mart Management, Leadership and Organizational Culture I.  Differentiate Between Management and Leadership At Wal-Mart, management is a mixture of controls and standards with a certain degree of freedom for everyone to be able to test on new things and continue to innovate for improvement. The company has excellent controls and they make the company good.  Management strategy is built on teams and the leaders go through the process of working with their team members.  Leaders go with the group and after every major operation, they all sit down together to analyze the strengths and improve on the weaknesses of the endeavor.    Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart, introduced some of the basic concepts of management which were popular with employees until the present.  He offered stock options and store discounts to his employees.  Walton believed that teams will always do better than individuals hence; he has always tried his best to make his employees happy since happy employees make happy customers and more sales.   Another reason is that he believes that the employees would care about the company more when they are a part of it and their success is dependent on the company's success.  At Wal-Mart, management encourages their employees to be open to talk and air out their concerns and problems.  This is what they call the "open door policy" management style.   "Leadership is an organizational role involving establishing a clear vision,......

Riwt Task1

...Humanities RIWT Task1 Describe Dadaism Dadaism or Dada was developed during World War I. The movement was born, as they say, in Zurich by refugees from mostly Germany and France. Dadaism used visual art, literature such as poetry, theatre, and some graphic design. It was a protest against the war. Because of the horrific events going on in the war, Dadaists used everything from obscenities, scatological humor, visual puns, and any object that would do to thrash nationalism, rationalism, materialism and anything which they felt added to or contributed to the war. Dada used prefabricated materials such as photographs, paintings and mass-produced objects in their art works. They used the idea as much as the materials. An everyday object is turned into an art by object by placing it an artistic context. It disregarded tradition and the use of conscious form in favor of the ridiculous. The movement spread from Zurich to other parts of Europe and eventually New York City. The art form began to get serious consideration in the early 1920s. The Dadaism slowly faded. Describe Surrealism The dictionary defines Surrealism as “A style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th century, stressing the subconscious or non-rational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects.” Surrealism was a movement in the 1920s, and is best known for the visual artworks and writings of the group members. Surrealist works feature the......

...Final Essay General Studies Capstone Before I started at UCO, I completed courses at both Oklahoma City Community College and OSU-OKC. My very first semester of college was at OCCC where I was straight out of high school. I finished high school online, so starting over and going to class was a learning curve for me. I was very anxious and shy starting out. I remember the first day of class, it was Intro to Psychology, and before going into class I cried in my car for twenty minutes because I was so nervous. I thought college would be an extension of high school and that I didn’t want to go through again. Once I talked myself into going to class, the first hour I did not remember. However, I quickly realized that college is nothing like high school. The professors are nice, but honestly they are not there to babysit so they didn’t enforce rules but when you did something they didn’t care for they just made you leave. I loved that part, I always felt more mature than the people of the same age because I had two sisters that were 10 years older than me, therefore I was forced to grow up and be mature at a very young age. So having ‘no tolerance’ professors was something I truly liked. Once the first class ended, I had already made a couple new friends. Some of which I still am very close with to this day. I stayed at OCCC for one semester before transferring on to OSU-OKC to pursue my Associates Degree in Echocardiography, (Cardiac Sonography). I remained in this......

The employee was allowed to take the 11 weeks off that he requested without loss of his job, position or salary rate. The employee was allowed up to 12 weeks of job protected leave within the first year of his childs life. His employer granted him the leave and his job was never at risk. A3. No violation has occurred in this scenario. The employee’s position and pay rate were held and kept the same. The employee was within the allowed time limit using only 11 of the 12 allowed weeks. B1.

C200 Task 2

...Task 2: Self-Assessment of Leadership Practices Assessment Code: C200 Student Name: Shery Marson Student ID: # 000000000 Date: April 27, 2016 Self-Assessment of Leadership Practices Leadership is defined as the ability to influence people towards attaining their goals. The objective of my study is to assess myself on my leadership practices as I interact with others as we work towards attaining organizational goals and making the company I work for more successful both now and in the future. If leadership is the influence of one person over others to aid and to support their role in order to achieve the combined purpose, then it is my desire to become that type of leader. Leadership is not a role or a position but can be summed up as an act of achieving the tasks assigned. The whole situation of success and failure is determined by the role the leader plays. It has been said if you are the source of inspiration or the force that drives others then you are the path to the top of the ladder and you are their leader. Leadership I believe is the heart and soul of an organization. Do I have the right style and qualities to inspire and mold others and inspire them to be the best they can be as they perform their jobs? By a study of my strengths and weakness and taking the Seven Habits profile I will be able to find out more about my leadership abilities. It is my desire to be a leader that will empower others by encouragement, providing them the right tools, to......
