2011 Annual Meeting Minutes

January 4, 2012

Igo Library at 6:30PM

Meeting called to order at 6:35pm by Melissa Lauer. Meeting conducted by Melissa Lauer and Vanessa Nesmith.

Discussed the 2011 Budget:

New expenses:

A new law effective January 1, 2012, requires all HOA’s to pay attorney fee’s upfront. As a result of the new law, in 2011 the board hired a collection agency to collect on past due accounts. The outcome was positive and the community responded by making their accounts current, however, there are still some outstanding accounts. The water bill has increased due to changes in the rates with SAWS.

As a result of the SAWS rate increase, the annual HOA assessment did increase to $275.00. The board will accept payment arrangements as outlined on the billing statements.

Old Business:

In 2010, the community voted no security guard and requested maintenance to the park to include new mulch. The board repaired the bridge and filled the park with 5 yards of kiddie mulch. The board has obtained quotes to replace with rubber mulch at a cost of $5000.

The Yard of Month contest was placed on hold due to the drought restrictions. The board will utilize those prizes towards 2012 contests.

Social Committee volunteers did help with the entrance decorating.

New Business:

The landscaper has waited to plant new color annuals at the entrance and will apply the credit towards a new drip irrigation system which is drought friendly and save on water bills. The sprinklers at the basketball court have been capped.

Timers and photocells were replaced and updated as well as energy efficient bulbs were replaced at the entrance lights, pedestal lights and park lights.

The Hausman Construction Project will being with SAWS updating the irrigation and a temporary easement will be constructed in…...

Cambridge Five

...Cambridge Five Creation and Operations Introduction “Cambridge Five” or “Magnificent Five” is the name given to a group of five young men whom all graduated from Cambridge University. They betrayed their country by spying for the Soviet Union and passing them secret information. They were probably the most successful Soviet spies to penetrate the western intelligence. Their actions allow the Soviet Union to get access to vital intelligence and created rift between the British and the Americans. This essay will look at the background of each member and how they joined the Soviet intelligence services, their operations and its impact in the world of espionage. In addition, this essay will evaluate the significance of each individual’s actions and how it affected intelligence services. Origin of Cambridge Five Cambridge Five refers to a spy ring which the members were all part of Cambridge University. It is unclear there were more than five men, regardless the five individuals are Guy Burgess, Donald Maclean, Kim Philby, Anthony Blunt and John Cairncross. They all attended Cambridge University between 1926 and 1934 studying in different disciplines with a strong belief in Communism. They were all good friends with each other with the exception of Cairncross who was never really part of the circle. The first of the Cambridge Five group and probably the most famous was Harold Adrian Russell Philby, also known as Kim codenamed Sohnchen, then Tom and Stanley. He was......

Cambridge Software Corporation

...Harvard Business School 9-191-072 Rev. June 17, 1993 Cambridge Software Corporation “If we don’t decide soon, Paula, your people won’t have time to make changes in the software and to write the documentation for the student version, and my people won’t have time to publicize the software at colleges and with professors. It’s already Thanksgiving; any further delay, and we won’t be ready for the next academic year.” Tony Atkinson, the new product manager at Cambridge Software Corporation (CSC) was meeting with Paula Stewards, vice president, Software Development, and Chuck Kennedy, CSC’s president and chairman, in November 1989 to decide whether to offer multiple versions of Modeler, a new Lotus 1-2-3®-compatible modeling software product. Stewards responded to Atkinson’s appeal. “It’s easy for you to push for several versions of Modeler. After all, in your previous job, you were responsible for a line of many different clock radio models. Before that, it was toaster ovens. And before that, hand tools. But, for us, multiple product versions is a new concept. My people have enough trouble developing, documenting, and supporting one version of a software product. And you are pushing for three versions of a product of which we don’t have even one version ready!” Kennedy knew both Atkinson and Stewards were right in their own ways. He had hired Atkinson because he wanted CSC to move from offering single products to multi-version product lines. On the other hand, Stewards......

Cambridge Case

...Cambridge Software Corporation I. Problem Statement In November 2008 Cambridge Software Corporation (CSC) had to decide under high time pressure whether to develop and offer multiple versions of Modeler, a new cross-operating system computer-based software product as well as which customer segments to target at which price points. II. Situation Analysis Context and Company: CSC was founded in 1993 and has accumulated a lot of experience in developing computer software up until 2008. Vice president Paula Stewards helped to transform the company from offering products to the academic market to developing and selling computer software to the commercial market, with the latter accounting for 95% of revenues and almost all of the company´s profits in 2008. Moreover, in 2008 Kennedy hired Atkinson, who had relevant experience managing product lines of a range of computer and consumer-electronic products as product manager. Customers: The market consists of different customer segments: both the large, multidivisional organizations and the corporate and university laboratories require analytical and sophisticated software for multi-plant scheduling and experimental data analysis and show a higher willingness to pay for the industrial version compared with other segments. The consultants and professional companies and small businesses have the highest and second highest willingness to pay in the market for the student version and require less sophisticated models in order...

...With the rapid development of business and marketing relations, the portrayal of the right image through the distinct and memorable visual identity has become one of the chief factors, which gives the competitive advantage. Designing logos, business branding and trademarks, we are more likely to be the leaders on the market and our image can be perceived as the symbol, implying the originality and quality of our products. The Apple hardware company is the best computer company that sells PCs, laptops, iPods and some other appliances, mostly with Mac OS. But what is important, designers represent their unique logo on every product and nowadays practically each American knows that visual sign of apple stands for Apple Inc. I am not an exception, because I do recognize this logo. It was ten years ago when I got my first Apple computer and enjoyed it. I noticed this nice logo and appreciated it. I never regretted buying this hardware. The high quality is provided and the comfort is created. And the logo makes me think about highly innovative tendencies and forces me to respect the company. Apple Inc. is the most successful computer company in terms of selling PCs. And I am totally opposed to Windows OS as it has a lot of disadvantages in comparison with Mac OS. As I am interested in computers and Internet, I use this hardware every day with quite different purposes: both for work and for my study when searching information for the projects. Today, I...

...The Role of Accounting in the Financial Crisis: Lessons for the Future S.P. Kothari kothari@mit.edu 617-253-0994 and Rebecca Lester rlester@mit.edu MIT Sloan School of Management E60-382, 30 Memorial Drive Cambridge, MA 02421 December 14, 2011 ABSTRACT: The advent of the Great Recession in 2008 was the culmination of a perfect storm of lax regulation, a growing housing bubble, rising popularity of derivatives instruments, and questionable banking practices. In addition to these causes, management incentives, as well as certain US accounting standards, contributed to the financial crisis. We outline the significant effects of these incentive structures, and the role of fair value accounting standards during the crisis, and discuss implications and relevance of these rules to practitioners, standard-setters, and academics. This article is based on a presentation by Deputy Dean and Professor SP Kothari of the Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at Baruch College on October 25, 2010. 1    Electronic copy available at: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1972354 The Role of Accounting in the Financial Crisis: Lessons for the Future I.

Caryl Phillips's "Cambridge" Analysis

...Caryl Phillips is concerned with the issue of racial discrimination specifically against the enslaved blacks during the period of slavery. Racial discriminatory practices manifested itself in the form of physical and psychological abuse, and the suppression of their voice. The novel “Cambridge” was written by British- Caribbean novelist, Caryl Phillips in 1991. Phillips was born in St. Kitts in 1958, and settled in Leeds, England with his parents as a toddler. The story is set on a nineteenth century Caribbean plantation. Phillips focuses the novel on the issue of slavery. Slavery lasted from the mid 15th century to the late 19th century. The middle passage is the transportation of Africans to the Caribbean where they were to be enslaved. Africans were chained below decks and brought up once a day to exercise. Conditions below decks were disreputable as slaves were packed very closely below deck. It is estimated that 48,000 Africans were imported to the British Caribbean for sale by the 1790’s. The historical context of slavery as highlighted in the novel reveals the harsh and inhumane nature of the system of slavery. In addition, the author also reveals the complexity of master/ slave relationships during the period. White men typically engaged in forced sexual intercourse with the wives of the enslaved African men. The Europeans enforced slave codes to disrupt and discourage the development of slave families and communication among slaves until the 1823 Amelioration Act......

Cambridge Software

...CAMBRIDGE SOFTWARE CORPORATION: QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS Learning Objectives: Benefits of product variety Factors limiting product variety Strategic considerations in product-line pricing III. Quantitative Analysis: We will first consider the product-line design and pricing decisions for the case when CSC can offer only one version. In this case, the product-line design only involves selecting the “right” version to offer. Note further that targeting/positioning decision is synonymous with pricing decision in this case because the price selected by CSC completely determines which of the potential 5 segments will actually buy the version introduced by CSC. In the second part of this document, we consider the multi-version case. a) Single-Version Case: Decisions Rule: Choose the version which gives the highest contribution margin Options: (i) “Student” version; (ii) “Commercial” version; (iii) “Industrial” version Optimization Procedure (Managerial Logic): The managerial logic involved in this case can be represented by the following decision tree: [pic] In the decision tree, there are two levels of decisions/optimizations. The first level involves selection of the model to introduce. The second level decision is the targeting/positioning/pricing decision. In the figure above, Consultants refers to the fact that targeting includes Consultants and more high-end segments (i.e. Large Corporations and labs). Note that with......

Cambridge Sciences Pharmaceuticals Case Study

...trend for the best and most modern procedures and treatment approaches. Furthermore, many of them return to Ireland having gained a wealth of experience in the conduct of clinical trials at these major U.S. centres. Being native English speakers many of our consultants also have strong networks of contacts among U.S. KOLs. They therefore have good potential for development as speakers or international thought-leaders. From a key note speaker and clinical trials perspective our consultants therefore represent a valuable resource to the company. Furthermore, Bayer’s link through Irish Oncologists to these U.S. KOLs, known as “tier one KOLs”, is of significant benefit particularly when planning and organising pre-launch speaker events. Like Cambridge Sciences Pharmaceuticals’ (CSP) plans for Metabical in the pre-launch stage, especially “high-profile medical education events”, Bayer would emulate this initiative especially at important national and international Oncology conferences. It is significantly of benefit to Bayer that while the prospect of expanding its market base through additional Oncology licensing is probable, the existing community of Oncology consultants with which it has established links based on their working experience using Nexavar over the last 5 years serves as a strong foothold for successful expansion. The size of the country means that we have good access and good relationships with most of the Oncologists. This also means that we are closer to the......
