## db 2.2 accounting

Consider this situation.  You are the Finance Director for a small local business.  This morning, you reviewed this basic summary quarterly income statement. Your supervisor (the Company President) just stopped by for a visit to discuss this situation â€“ and he was obviously not happy. After a short discussion with him, he wanted you to produce the following:

• Your recommendation on a plan for reducing overall expenses by at least 15%, while at the same time increasing advertising expenditures by 500%.
• A simple budget (similar in structure to the summary quarterly income statement as shown below) that reflects your recommendation.

## discussion board 2.1

Consider the following financial information:

• Total Equity  = \$500,000

## Art as Communication

THE ART CURATOR PROJECT-FINAL

(RESEARCH AND CURATE YOUR OWN ART EXHIBITION)

Imagine that you are an art curator and that you have an unlimited budget to curate any art exhibition that your heart desires as long as it is about one of the five topics listed above.  You can rent or buy any space or any building for this project. Artworks can include sculpture, murals, architectural structures or anything related to the topic you choose.  The sky is the limit! You can fly in works from all over the world. Your paper will explain how your art show demonstrates ideas inspired by these topics using at least six pieces of art from two different artists and from two different eras or cultures. These works should educate the viewer. Your job is to explain to us how the art youâ€™ve selected proves or reveals to us your thesis and what the art proves about the artistsâ€™ intent or their place in history.

Your Art Curator Project FINAL (art exhibition) will be a paper of 1500-2000 words, with images. You must include at least three â€œblock by blockâ€ or â€œpoint by pointâ€ comparisons between your six artworks. Formal analysis and comparisons are methods you will use which will be practiced throughout the class building up to your Art Curator Project. Choose 6 works that are similar enough to make sense together but different enough to create dynamic and exciting comparisons. There are materials in the course labeled â€œHow To Write A Comparison in Art Historyâ€ which will be helpful for this.  Each comparison should help to prove the thesis of your paper. Through comparisons we will see how form and content work together to create meaning in art.

Checklist of The Art Curator Project FINAL

• Clearly stated thesis (this is not the same as the topic) (See “Just what is a thesis in art history” Week 1 Lecture)
• Word doc of 1500-2000 words
• Include discussion, analysis of artworks by at least two different artists (See “How to Look at Art”)
• Include images of the (at least 6) artworks, correctly labeled to match captions in textbook.
• Note: Up to 2 of the 6 arts works may come from the textbook. Find the rest from reliable sources such as museum sites and the Course Resources in each Week. Be sure to include identification of each.
• Include at least 5 resources. You may use the textbook for one. Wikipedia does not count. Two resources must be from journals.
• Getlein, M. (2016). Living with art (11th ed.). New York, NY: McGraw-Hill Education. ISBN13: 978-0073379319

1.The Art as Communication topic should really focus on the ways art can be used to further a social or political message. Be sure that this is the central focus of your paper, not just the stories being communicated.

2. Include five or more reputable sources for the final assignment.

Was it inappropriate to include Murphy’s composition in the concert? Why or why not?

## What is Discourse Community? – homeworksmith

As in life, groups gather into communities for discussions and analysis in applied linguistics. A type of grouping that is widely used to reports written communication is “Discourse Community.” John Swales, an influential analyst of written communication, described these communities as groups that have purpose or idea, which uses communication to get to those goals.

James Poter also defined it as a temporary constraining system, represented by the practices of texts, unified by the same focus. Moreover, a discourse community is a textual system having some stated and unstated conventions, a vital history, institutional hierarchies, bestowed interest, and so on. An Individual joins the community through proper training or by personal urge having different languages, so the primary language of a discourse community is described as registers or datatype. The most important factor is the “map” of the discourse community that entails goals, vocabulary, and genres. Still, these do not remain fixed as with upcoming interests and participants, and they keep on modifying.

According to John Swales, and educator and researcher, the discourse community can be defined into six segments:

• It has a broadly agreed set of similar public goals.
• It comprises of mechanisms of intercommunication among their members.
• It uses a participatory mechanism primarily to provide information and feedback.
• It tends to utilize and possess one or more genres in the communicative furtherance of its aims.
• Along with owning genres, a discourse community has acquired some specific lexis.
• It has an entry-level of members with a suitable degree of relevant content and discourse expertise. [3]

Traditionally, the focus of discourse communities used to be interpersonal communication at the workplace. However, the trend shifted in recent years to web-based discourse communities. While getting into the study of discourse community one-must questions, what exactly constitutes a discourse community? What idea, concept, or factors unite the particular group and people?

The convolution of any research topic requires an intimate aspect of the individual and writing produced since being a part of such a social group.  Principally, there is no existence of a discourse community without interacting between individuals and the literature they produce, and the opinions regarding other members of the community.  Often, members do not classify themselves as “discourse community.” Rather, they take it involving themselves in something that is of their sheer interest, where others also have the common interest.
Lester Faigley, examining the topic of discourse communities and their writing from a social theoretical perspective, argues that an author shaped by the social and interactive norms around him and so his text bound up within those social contexts. Text is not detached to document solely, somewhat representative of the principles and delicate rhetorical shades of the environment in which it has formed.

While considering individuals a vital part of discourse communities, it is not limited to the involvement of people from distinct linguistic and cultural backgrounds as they begin to adapt to the standards of that discourse community. However, based on the pursuit of a common goal, involvement in one discourse community does not hinder participation in other groups. Cultural differences can inhibit the anticipated flexibility of learning in communities of practice. Cultural barriers can overcome by creating an online community, as some people tend to perform better-using technology.  Besides, the students, in many cases, tend to perform better in online discourse communities than in a classroom environment.

With the above description, it is clear that place of employment, our class, friends group, and all groups to which we belong are discourse community. And their success only depends on online communication, interpersonal communication, or the blend of both.
