Mary Ellen Mark was an American photographer born on March 20, 1940 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mark had enjoyed photography as a child and her very first camera was a Kodak Brownie. She attended the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia where she studied painting and art history. However, because Mark did not want to be confined in a studio, she chose to study photography at the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Pennsylvania. After finishing her schooling, Mark received a Fullbright scholarship and traveled to Turkey, Europe and the Middle East to take photographs. When she returned to the U.S. in 1966, Mark settled in New York City. Mark first won attention with a photograph in a photo-essay contest in Look magazine of heroin addicts in London. After this, she landed more magazine assignments and even worked on film sets as a still photographer. One film Mark captured in still photography was One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, starring Jack Nicholson. To continue her traveling experience, Mark also took several trips to India and the Middle East to photograph the many subcultures of the area. While she was there, Mark spent time with Mother Teresa, the Roman Catholic humanitarian worker, in Calcutta (Figure 1). During these trips, Mark created a photo series on Indian circuses. Included in this series is a photograph of a monkey trainer’s daughter, Figure 2, in New Delhi, India. The most gripping photos by Mark are said to be included in her series Streetwise, an assignment for Life magazine in 1983 on runaways and street children in Seattle, Washington (noteablebiographies.com). Mark and reporter Cheryl McCall chose to shoot in Seattle because at the time it was known as America’s most livable city (maryellenmark.com). When she arrived in Seattle, Mark met a 13-year-old girl who looked even younger than her age. She wore very…...

Ellen and Charity Comparison

...Ellen and Charity Comparison After reading Summer a novel by Edith Wharton, and watching the movie Age of Innocence, a movie based Edith Wharton’s book, I found two characters from each to be very similar. Ellen from Age of Innocence and Charity from Summer are very similar in many ways, such as, they are both outsiders in the societies in which they live. Also, they are in secret romances that would be forbidden if ever caught. So throughout this paper I am going to talk about their similarities, and also the few differences they have, and how there societies shape the character they are. First, I am going to touch on the subject that Charity and Ellen both do not fit into their societies, and are considered outsiders. Ellen is in New York City in the 1870’s during this story. During this time era in New York City, the society consisted of wealthy and well respected families, who had special customs and ways of going about things. Ellen being from Europe was not aware of these customs, therefore making her an outsider, because many people looked down on her because she did not act the way that she was suspected to. An example of this would be Ellen was estranged from her husband, and although they were separated, they were still married, so Ellen ran around with a gentleman named Julius who was also married and that was unacceptable in this society. Another example would be that Ellen was talking about getting a divorce from her husband, and that was looked down upon......

Ellen Moore Case Study

...Ellen Moore: Living And Working In Korea A female American consultant Ellen Moore has to face different problems working in Korea as a project manager. The Korean project Ellen is managing is month behind schedule. The tensions have arisen between her and her Korean co-manager, and the Korean project director Mr.Song is blaming Ellen for the problems. There obviously are differences between American and Korean culture. Some of the differences in relation to the Hofstede’s Framework: The Index of Power Distance is much higher in Korea (60; hierarchical society) than in America (40). Korea is considered as collectivistic society (Index of individualism = 18) contrary to very individualistic society – USA (91). The Masculinity Index of Korea is 39 which indicates that the culture is feminine; In USA the Masculinity Index is 62. 1. Why has the project run into problems? There are several causes that have led the project to problems. And these are not only cultural differences. Firstly, I would like to mention the management aspect. There were some contradictions of the information given to both co-leaders regarding who is leading the team. It seems that the power of authority is not clearly defined which led to misunderstanding which role each person should play. It resulted in overlapping power. Jack had more commanding power over subordinates than Ellen, but it anyway inevitably created confusion between the subordinates. As it was mentioned, there are great cultural...

...Accession of Mary Mary’s accession generally accepted and favoured by the English people, most likely because she was a legitimate successor There was the issue with Lady Jane Grey – Northumberland attempted to make his daughter-in-law, Lady Jane Grey, the successor after Edward. She was Queen for nine days, but was deposed and Mary carried on as legitimate successor. Faction Mary was determined to fill the council with loyal people, but she couldn’t prevent all rivalries! = Gardiner vs. Paget. The rivalry emerged over Mary’s marriage issue. Gardiner proposed that Mary should marry Courtnay, and Paget argued she should marry Phillip of Spain Some were also sceptical of some of her policies, such as the effectiveness of the burning of protestants. However, despite some disagreements with her policies, she managed to obtain agreement for 3 major steps: the full return to Rome in religion, her marriage to the heir of the Spanish throne and the declaration of war on France Faction was much less of a problem in Mary’s reign than her predecessors, with a greater sense of continuity and solidarity among most councillors. Marriage The first question on everybody’s lips was “Who should marry Mary?” Edward Courtney vs. Phillip of Spain Why Phillip? He was a Catholic He was Spanish, and Mary was half Spanish after all! He had more political experience as he had already been regent in the Netherlands Spain has money and owns most of Europe and the Americas It would......

...Ellen Moore Living And Working In Korea Management Essay In recent years, globalization has accelerated the emergence of many global companies that operate across geographical borders and require high levels of cross-national interdependence and cross-border flow of products, technology, capital and people. Businesses are expanding internationally through alliances and joint ventures, as well as mergers and acquisitions. This driving force has resulted in a growing number of people seeking international careers outside of their home countries. Ellen Moore, an experienced systems consultant who worked for Systems Consulting Group (SCG), a unit of Western Systems Inc. (WSI), was sent to Korea to manage a project involving a team of North American and Korean consultants. WSI newly entered the Korean market in 1990 through forming a joint venture (JVI) with Korean Conglomerate Inc. (KCI). Ellen was selected based on her strong background in project management, her creativity and technical abilities. She also had successful international experience working in Bahrain before, which may be helpful to her journey working in Korea, a new different foreign country. Ellen Moore- the international manager For Ellen, an expatriate manager who has limited knowledge of Korea and did not obtain any training from SCG prior to her arrival in Korea, living in Korea produced constant and unexpected challenges to the ways of perceiving, acting and valuing things, making it difficult for her to...

Mary Walker

...MARY E. WALKER By: Rebecca Leadership March 2, 2013 I chose Mary Edwards Walker as my leader for this final project. I have always enjoyed reading a little bit of military history and I always look for stories about people who have gone above and beyond the call of duty or went against the grain. In my opinion, she really set the bar high for other women to follow, and I find her to be an exemplary leader and role model for other women in the business world. Mary Walker was born on November 26, 1832 in Oswego, New York (Unknown, Women in History ). She can accredit her leadership style and personality to her father, Alvah. Her father was a farmer, abolitionist, and a self-taught doctor. During this time, most women did not attend school or work outside the home, but because Mary’s father believed that women should be well educated, he built the first schoolhouse in Oswego on their land known as the Bunker Hill Farm (Unknown, Women in History ). In addition, this farm served as a “station” in the Underground Railroad system that assisted southern slaves to freedom—mainly from western New York into Canada (D. L. Walker 29-30) . Alvah also believed that women’s clothing was too tight and because his daughters had to help on the farm, he prohibited them from wearing the traditional clothing and corsets (Unknown, Women in History ). When Mary turned 18, she spent two years at the Falley Seminary where she was taught Mathematics, Philosophy, Grammar, and...

Mary Ellen Mark-a Photographer

...expressive photographs, Mary Ellen Mark takes us on a journey without barriers into the lives not often seen of others. My main focus in this paper is to analyze Mary Ellen Mark’s social documentation through the connotative and denotative aspects of her photographs, which capture a scene but say a thousand words. A humanization to all her photographs, which is a true gift of Mark’s and is a style that seems to be disappearing today. I have always been in “aw” of Mary Ellen Mark” since I was 12 years old. I wanted to travel around the world and capture life in a different perspective. She was my inspiration on many photographs I have taken in my life. When I was 14, I was living in another country and joined my first photography group. I used Marks inspiration to photograph poverty, war, and to capture portraits of lives not seen by others. At 15, I was given my own exhibit and I was able to show others photographs that said a thousand words. It was a success and after that moment I knew what path I wanted to take in my life. Mary Ellen Mark has a very distinct style, typically narrating the lives of people that are in extremely heartbreaking situations, such as physical abuse, prostitution, poverty, and drug addiction. Marks ability to capture the brutal honesty of her subjects is extremely unique to her style of photography. She blasts through the scarred walls of her subjects and exhibits their raw vulnerability leaving no room for sentiment. Mark has......

...1. CQ: Is what happened to Ellen a surprise? Why or why not? Do you think what happened to Ellen would have happened to people like yourself, and from your background? Why? It is a surprise what happened to Ellen. Although she is from a country with different culture from Korea, Ellen is a high quality professional with international experience. She had put a lot of effort to adapt to Korea culture and know how to do business at that country. She took every free time to learn and be familiarized with the local language, business etiquette, mannerism and culture in order to have a better environment to work at. Therefore, even coming from a very different culture, Ellen made a big effort to behave as close as possible to her colleagues from Korea. What happened to Ellen would probably happen to any other person even with the members from our group. Despite some similarity of the culture style between Brazil and South Korea ,it looks like her co-worker Jack didn’t recognize Ellen’s as a co-responsible for the work, so from this point of view anyone in her place could have the same problem. What might help in this situation is if it was a man in Ellen’s shoes as Korean’s culture is more male oriented. But it is not clear that Jack would react better even with a man, as Jack had studied at an American university and it would be expected that he would understand the situation of working together with an woman co-worker. 2. CQ: Is Ellen a “typical North American female......

...Assignment 14.10.2015 Since globalization have forced global companies work and cooperate across geographical borders, their employees must travel and work in different countries and therefore have to deal with variety of cultural differences. Ellen Moore, an experienced consultant from Systems Consulting Group despite some warnings that woman is not prefered as manager only if she is high qualified, was sent to Korea to work as a manager of korean consultants. Ellen's advantage why she was elected for this position was her experience in project management and her international experience from work in Bahrein. As Ellen arrived in Korea, she takes every possibility to learn language and to understand local culture, lifestyle and values and soon she realized that there are remarkable differences from Western countries in the everyday live and also business environment, mainly based on historical evolution and impact of Confucianism which properties were affecting and reflecting in social and work environment: Complete loyalty to structure Duty to parents expressed in loyalty, love and gratitude Very strict rules of conduct (parents / children; old / young; male  / female ; teacher / student) In Western countries good manager and leader has  to express positive emotions public and some negative remarks are prefered to announce in private in order not to reduce person's public confidence. In Korea manager should express disappointment  about person’s performance public,...

Ellen Degenres

...Ellen Degeneres Vahchai Thompson Columbus Technical College Principals of Management Jacqueline Harris July 9, 2016 Abstract Ellen DeGeneres said it best, “The world is full of a lot of fear and a lot of negativity, and a lot of judgment. I just think people need to start shifting into joy and happiness. As corny as it sounds, we need to make a shift.” ("Ellen Quotes," n.d, para. 1). This means that if people spent more time doing things that pleased versus judging people out of fear and about things they do not understand nor agree with the world would be a better place. Ellen a native of Louisiana never would have thought that her standup comedy would lead to her being one of the top female talk show hosts in the world. She has overcome many adversities in her career from coming out publicly as a lesbian, gender stereotypes, and for being an activist in the LGBTQ community. Through it all she has always kept her quirky sense of humor and her tomboyish style.  Ellen Degeneres During her interview with Oprah, Ellen described her coming out story she went on to say, “I think I've told you about a dream I had. I was struggling with the idea of coming out—what it would do to my career and to me—and in this dream, I was holding a tiny finch in the palm of my hand. I could feel how much I loved this bird and that it was safe in my hand, and I was reaching in to put it back in its cage—one of these thin, bamboo, beautiful, multitiered cages—and as I was putting the......

...Analysis 3 Ellen Moore Jenna Gilson Talal Khader Britton Larson Aubrey Morgan MGT 400 2/20/12 1. Identify the problems that the focal company/person in the case face. There is an unclear hierarchical reporting structure within the project team, making it impossible for  the project to continue and limits communication and knowledge transfer. The main problem that the Systems Consulting Group faces is that they need to complete their consulting project that they are behind schedule on, and need to choose a course of action quickly. 2. Identify underlying causes to the problem at hand There are many problems that are halting the progress of the project. The team is clearly suffering from lack of communication, disorganized team structure, unclear leadership and constant disagreement over the decision-making process. Business: The Korean structure appears to be hierarchical which seems to impact the understanding of relationships between consultants and clients of both the Americans and Koreans. Management: In Korea, respect for position and status influences how a project is executed. It is evident that power authority is undefined. Jack and Ellen don’t have a specific role, so there is an overlapping of power. As a result, subordinates are often confused and find it a bit hard to follow the lead of their superiors. There seems to be a lack of trust between Ellen and Jack......

...Mark Zuckerberg Mark Elliot Zuckerberg (born May 14, 1984) is an American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur. He is best known for co-creating the social networking site Facebook, of which he is chief executive and president. It was co-founded as a private company in 2004 by Zuckerberg and classmates Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin, and Chris Hughes while they were students at Harvard University. In 2010, Zuckerberg was named Time magazine's Person of the Year. As of 2011, his personal wealth was estimated to be $17.5 billion. Early years Zuckerberg began using computers and writing software as a child in middle school. His father taught him Atari BASIC Programming in the 1990s, and later hired software developer David Newman to tutor him privately. Newman calls him a "prodigy," adding that it was "tough to stay ahead of him." Zuckerberg also took a graduate course in the subject at Mercy College near his home while he was still in high school. He enjoyed developing computer programs, especially communication tools and games. In one such program, since his father's dental practice was operated from their home, he built a software program he called "ZuckNet," which allowed all the computers between the house and dental office to communicate by pinging each other. It is considered a "primitive" version of AOL's Instant Messenger, which came out the following year. According to writer Jose Antonio Vargas, "some kids played computer games. Mark created them."......
