Communication in the United States Army … “an order that be misunderstood be misunderstood.” Field Marshal Helmuth von Moltke Communication in the United States Army is arguably the single most vital aspect in waging effective and overpowering warfare. On average the United States Army spends around 1.8billion dollars on communication equipment procurement and upkeep the shocking part is this number does not cover the cost of training individual soldiers or research and development of new communication technology’s it is exclusive to procurement and maintenance of equipment and materials. The history of communication in military’s goes back as far as written history with the first battle ever recorded in the 15th century BC the battle of Megiddo where the Egyptian forces under command of Pharaoh Thutmose III attacked a price of Kadesh who was holding the key city of Megiddo. The use of horns was recorded signaling the order to attack. Up in until the mid-19th century the common methods of communication ranged from a runner carrying a letter, a man on a horse taking a message hundreds of miles as was the case with the infamous Paul Revere, to being told what to do by the change of rhythm of a drum or horn, even flags have been widely used to signal units that were to attack to come forward or to convey a rally point for soldiers in the heat of battle. As archaic and non-functional as these methods seem to us today it wasn’t until the 1830s and the invention of the telegraph did communication in the army become electronic however the old tried and true methods of curriers and flags were still used extensively.
With this new invention messages took minutes to reach one place to another rather than hours or days. This coupled with advancements in weapons technology can most certainly be attributed to the larger and larger number of casualty’s…...

Granger Paper Co. Case

...Acc 327 Case No. 2 Spring 2012 It is January 20, 2012, and you are the senior auditor in charge of auditing the 2011 year-end financial statements for Granger Paper Company (GPC). GPC is a profitable company that has been in business for many years. It is primarily a manufacturing company that buys wood from timber growers and converts the wood into a variety of paper products. It is a publicly traded company with a reputation as a good corporate citizen. Although GPC has been audited many times in the past by external CPA firms, this is the first year your firm has conducted the audit. GPC’s total revenue for 2011 is $80 million. In examining the revenue for the year, you notice that $3 million of the revenue does not come from GPC’s primary operations (i.e., revenue from sales of paper goods). This $3 million in revenue is labeled as timber revenue in GPC’s books. This strikes you as odd because, generally, GPC buys timber. That is, timber is part of the cost of goods sold for GPC and, as such, is an expense. You ask GPC’s controller, Pat Smith, why GPC is recognizing timber revenue? Pat informs you that GPC began diversifying its operations a few years ago. A natural extension of its business seemed to be growing and selling timber. So, five years ago, GPC bought 10,000 acres of land in Alabama and Mississippi for purposes of growing timber. The land was purchased from a previous timber grower that had recently harvested its timber. Immediately after......

...Final Paper Courtney George ISCOM/476 April 1, 2013 Debra Foland Final Paper The area that I believe that is important to any supply chain that will provide success in customer satisfaction is measuring performance. Setting up the appropriate metrics to measure the effectiveness of the supply chain will highlight areas needing improvement to meet the customers’ requirements. Metrics in the supply chain areas will certify an effective and efficient supply chain and room for improvements. With the market changing and competition increasing at such a fast pace it is imperative to have metrics set up to gain competitive advantage. Setting up appropriate metrics that align with the strategic plan will verify effectiveness of the supply chain or validate that improvements need to be made. These metrics can measure how the supply chain is functioning in different areas to make sure that it is functioning correctly and meeting demands. The processes in the supply chain must be mapped to the main metrics to control performance. There must a process that is in place to review the actual supply chain performance and redefine the metrics with changing business. A combined single view of supply chain performance across functions and chain of command is crucial to help management quickly conclude the causes of adversities.

...Shuo Sun – Anthro R5B - Final Paper Outline Abstract: In “The art of not being governed”, James Scott uses the example of the hill people living in the mountain region of Zomia and argued that instead of being primitive form of living, barbarians, or human beings leftover from pre-state era, these hill people deliberately move to inaccessible region to avoid state control. Scott states that the inaccessibility of the hills make them natural escape routes that can be used to avoid the sovereignty of state government. Scott briefly talks about the examples of how the defeated Kuomintang in the 1950s and the remnants from Taiping Rebellion both escaped to the mountains, but fails to talk about what happen to these people after that. In this paper, I would like to work on this missing information and find data to evaluate whether these people converted themselves to hill people permanently or did they use the resources in the hills to fight back against the state. The aim of this paper is to find out whether the primary or secondary sources concur with Scott’s arguments and discuss about the mechanism of using hills as escape routes in more details. Outline: 1. Introduction: The section introduces Scott and his book, “The art of not being governed” and points the reader to the specify topic that I will be focusing on in this paper. There will be a few sentences talking about the rationale and importance of this paper. (0.5 page) 2. Theoretical background: This......

As a newly hired Corporate Controller for this company, I have been assigned the task of developing and overlooking a new plan made by the CEO that will use some of the shingle scrap materials to build cedar houses.

Some of the key risk points are: Inventory represents a big portion of the cash flow, therefore having extra inventory on hand will have an impact on the company's future cash...

...instructor, choose a topic for your final 7-10 page research paper that addresses a topic other than that of your Oral Presentation. While your paper may be on any topic related to course materials; it must synthesize material addressed throughout the semester. For example, if you decide to write about visual culture of hip hop, you should probably refer to Tricia Rose's arguments about "preferred transcripts" suggested by music videos and Todd Boyd's conception of "hyperreal" cinematic imagery. FINAL PAPER INSTRUCTIONS: Your paper should also incorporate research that extends beyond the boundaries of materials on our syllabus. You should also be sure to construct an argument and offer a critique of assumptions surrounding your argument. The most successful papers will allow the "messiness" of researching popular culture to foreground contradictions implicit in your arguments. For example, if you want to argue that misogyny is less of a concern in 2006 than it was in 1995 because many of the gangsta rap groups responsible for "bitch-ho" rhetoric have disbanded, you would probably want to underscore the pervasive lack of feminist female representation in any hip hop idiom in 2002. In other words, less gangsta rap has not meant more positive heterosocial conditions for the production of hip hop. This is a research paper, and it will be graded according to standards of college-level humanities writing. Your paper must be typewritten, double-spaced,...

In the first type, usually called quid pro quo, the harasser explicitly or implicitly makes success in a job, classroom assignment, or some other situation contingent on the victim’s submission to the harasser’s unwelcome sexual demands.

Co-Cultures in a Multicultural Society Paper

...  Co-Cultures in a Multicultural Society Paper The movie Fools Rush In is a great example of how gender as well as cultural differences can hinder communication in a multicultural society. Fools Rush In is about two people, Alex and Isabel, who come from two different cultural backgrounds who after a one night stand become pregnant and decide to get married. However, along with the marriage come compromises that include cultural traditions and personal sacrifices. The movie is a comedy but can also be viewed as romantic and shows how two people who love each other can resolve the issues of cultural and gender differences. Male and female differ in their use of communication because their reasons for communicating are different. Men generally communicate to transmit information and solve specific problems, while women usually use communication to express feelings and achieve emotional intimacy (Dunn, 2009). Women use nonverbal communication more than men, because they feel a closer connection to the opposite sex when communicating. Research has shown girls display more nurturance communication behavior than boys and this would account for a higher sensitivity to nonverbal cues (Dunn, 2009). Women can pick up on any nonverbal cue that is given and know if the person is being genuine or if a person is upset, men on the other hand have a hard time picking up on these cues. This can be seen in the movie where Alex does not understand how Isabel truly feels by her nonverbal......
