People in low-context cultures tend to prefer direct verbal interaction, understand meaning at one level only, are less proficient in reading nonverbal communication, value individualism, emphasize linear logic, use :logic” to express ideas, say no directly, communicate in highly structured messages with many words, and stress the literal meaning of words.

Portfolios of the Poor Chapters 1-3

...Chapter 1- About 2.5 billion people live on less than two dollars a day. Two dollars a day does not mean literally mean “two dollars a day.” It is an average over time. Those who live on so little seek to manage their money. They save as much as they can and borrow when they need to. “Money management, for the poor [is] a fundamental and well-understood part of everyday life” (3). -The authors conducted studies that they called financial diaries to discover how the poor managed their money. -Negative net worth was rare in the study; in fact only 3 percent were in that position. -The poor not only save, borrow, and repay in money but also in kind. Wives swap rice or other food items. Another example would be repaying a debt with labor instead of money. -Most changes over the year in the study was financial rather than physical. “financial management is the stepping-stone to understanding how households build net worth” (11). -Every household in the study had savings and debt of some sort. The hardest things for the households are that their income is irregular. Some days they have work and get paid and some days they don’t. -Long-term money management has two concerns in poor households: One: how to cope with risk Two: the need to build or borrow large sums of money. -The three needs that drive the activity in the house hold are 
 1. Managing basics ex. Food 2. Coping with risk 3. Raising Lump sums Borrowing = starting or expanding a business or......

Module 1 Assignment 3

...MODULE 1, ASSIGNMENT 3 September 12, 2013 Topics: Performance Management, Financial Management and Financial Reporting Overview In this assignment, candidates get a chance to apply all the steps except for steps 6 and 9 in the Steps for Approaching Business and Corporate Strategy to a small business case. As mentioned previously, these steps provide candidates with a systematic approach for addressing a case involving business-level strategic issues. Applying this approach effectively is one of the important competencies that candidates will learn in the CMA Canada Professional Programs. The starting point for solving a business problem is to analyze the current situation and identify the problems that need to be addressed. A major component of the situational analysis is to take a close look at the environments within which an organization finds itself. One of the methods commonly used in such an environmental analysis is “SWOT” (an acronym for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats), which considers the strengths and weaknesses in the internal environment as well as the opportunities and threats in the external environment. Candidates can refer to the required reading Situational Analysis Tools mentioned below for more information on how to go about doing a SWOT analysis. The next major step is to identify the issues and analyze various alternatives for addressing the major issues. In this case, a shortage of available cash is a major issue and needs to be......

Lp3 Assignment Chapter 3 Review

...1. What is the difference between law and ethics? In general, people elect to trade some aspects of personal freedom for social order. As Jean- Jacques Rousseau explains in The Social Contract, or Principles of Political Right, the rules the members of a society create to balance the individual rights to self-determination against the needs of the society as a whole are called laws. Laws are rules that mandate or prohibit certain behavior; they are drawn from ethics, which define socially acceptable behaviors. The key difference between laws and ethics is that laws carry the authority of a governing body, and ethics do not. Ethics in turn are based on cultural mores: the fixed moral attitudes or customs of a particular group. Some ethical standards are universal. For example, murder, theft, assault, and arson are actions that deviate from ethical and legal codes throughout the world. Whitman, Michael E., and Herbert J. Mattford. "The Need For Security."

CRT stands for cathode ray tube and LCD stands for liquid crystal display. The CRT is similar to an old television and the LCD uses thin film transistors and the back lighting is through polarized panels. Your specifications of a monitor include screen size, contrast ratio, refresh rate, response time, interfacing, dot pitchand pixel pitch.

...Chapter 1 answers Rational Interest 1a) According to my self beneficial factor i believe i would like to attend school full time because this would allow me to complete school faster and earn a degree for a high paying job and a life changing career but at the same time when there seems to be some time on my hands i would also decide not to be a full time student. For instance, on the summer i would be able to work, comprehend and experience the factors for working for ones self etc. I say this because it is not a logical idea to always be a full time student and not have any experience of work and at the same time it would be shoddy for me to work full time because i would have not time for school. 1b)I would rather buy a used book because it allows me to save more money for emergencies. Buying a new book would cost me a lot and selling it would not benefit me what so ever because i would have to sell it at a quarter of the price because it has be used. Buying it used and selling it at the same pre-owned amount is the best decision for me to make.

Bibl 350 Chapter Assignment 3 Due Date: Monday @ 11:59 PM (EST) -- midnight James Dunn Name: LU Email Address: BIBL 350 – Inductive Bible Study Assignments for Week #6 Assignment 10-1: Explain the Difference Between Reader Response and Authorial Intent (p.202). (20 Points) Note, this assignment is worth 20 points and should reflect considerable thought and effort in your response. Make sure you include in your explanation definitions of the terms involved. What role do presuppositions play in interpreting the Bible? Who controls the meaning of a biblical text? What is the source of reader-response view? What are the two main interpretive questions involved in these two views of who determines meaning? Reader Response: Reader response is the result of when the reader overlooks or neglects to discover what the author is intending to communicate in a biblical verse or passage. This method is dangerous as the reader attempts to bend the Word to their particular situation or circumstance. The question for this method by the reader is, “What does this verse and or passage mean to me?” rather than asking, “What is it that God is trying to communicate to me?” Or, “What does God want to teach me from this?” Reader response must be avoided at all cost as it has the potential to lead someone astray and down the wrong path. Scripture in the practice of this method is quoted out of context and is not taught or quoted as the author intended. Authorial Intent: Authorial intent......

Chapter 1 Graded Assignment

...1. Based on your experience as a coffee consumer, does Starbucks’ strategy as described in Concept & Connections 1.2 seem to set the company apart from rivals? Does the strategy seem to be keyed to a cost-based advantage, differentiating features, serving the unique needs of a niche, or some combination of these? What is there about Starbucks’ strategy that can lead to sustainable competitive advantage? Answer: I have to be honest I like my coffee but I don’t get why people are so fascinated with paying so much for coffee. That being said I will say that Starbuck definitely has set itself apart from its competitors. I know people whose day is just ruined if they don’t have their Starbucks coffee in the morning. I guess the reason they enjoy and like Starbucks is because Starbucks has quality products, with guidelines so detailed that they outline how much time it should take for their coffee to be prepared. I believe Starbucks uses a broad differentiation strategy because it focuses on a broader segment of the total coffee market. Starbucks strategy of continuing to grow their brand globally by increasing store locations in other countries and in the U.S coupled with offering non coffee products should allow them to sustain a substantial competitive advantage over its competition. 3. Elements of eBay’s strategy have evolved in meaningful ways since the company’s founding in 1995. After reviewing all of the links at the company’s investor relations site, which can......

I will be using my iPhone 6 to connect to a wireless network. Primarily, I made sure that my phone was on. Subsequently, I went to Settings and located the Wi-Fi tab. Continuously, I ensured that the Wi-Fi switch was switched to on, as shown in Figure 1. Following, I obtained the network name. The network name did not show up, meaning that the network was a hidden network. Nevertheless, I had to tap on Other… to manually type in the network name, CFT_Wireless. Since the network I provided is protected, I will then click on the Security tab to select the type of security the network uses. In this case, it uses the WEP, also known as Wired Enterprise Privacy, security type. To finish, you will enter the password that was setup by either the ISP or the administrator – cft#1.
