Place in my dropbox by 1:00 PM Nov. 5. 1. What I would have done of my initial response When I read the article, I am not so struggle as the author. In my first thought, I was thinking of what we can do and what we can’t do. Since we have a couple of hours to think how to deal with him, compared our time and his life, I will definitely take care of him immediately. First of all, actually, it’s not a matter of instant emergency, strictly speaking, we have more than six hours to decide what we can do, so it was not the matter that you have to make decision within a minute. Secondly, to minimal the reaction time in a team in the case without a clear leader, I will call the teammates immediately to have a 20-minutes meeting, to make everybody pull out their thoughts, what’s the strength and weakness to save him, what we can do and what we cannot do. After squeezing all ideas, I would have made a summary and a poll to decide what we should do. And then just follow the majority because I still had the commitment to other team members. So this is the instant reaction that I would have taken when I read it the first time. 2.

...arrival. Although I love traveling, sitting in this musty old coat pocket is quite a bore and our destination on this business trip is less than desirable. “I’m back…” my master droned as he stepped onto the unsophisticated American soil. Whipping me out of his chamber of a coat pocket and handing me to the tall uniformed man, I was admired, scanned, and stamped. The man at the port had never seen such an accomplished one of my kind before. I have ventured between America and the always great Europe an impressive number of times and plan on being stamped at different country boundaries until my pages are worn to the core, and I am an inked mess. “Incredible, Sir this passport is quite weathered. I see you have been many the miles.” “Mr. Henry James is my name and thank you. I take great pride in my travels for they provide one with experience and insight.” With a hard stamp my pages were once again marked with the disgraceful American ink, but either way I was glad to add another traveler’s mark to my collection. As Henry continued to talk about his travels and writing, he waved me around like a trophy to behold. Although glad to be seen and treasured, I wished he would put me away and we could start exploring some more. Getting into the carriage, he slipped me into the breast pocket of his coat which was my absolute favorite spot because it was the closest to his heart. With the crack of the whip, neigh of the horses, and jerk of the wagon we were off again to spend......

James Thurber

...James Thurber By Rahul Patel/10 [pic] Rahul Patel Mr. Hurdle Composition 11 May, 2012 James Thurber Part I: “Authors of light pieces have, nobody knows why, a genius for getting into minor difficulties: they walk into the wrong apartments, they drink furniture polish for stomach bitters, they drive their cars into the prize tulip beds of haughty neighbors, they playfully slap gangsters, mistaking them for old school friends” (James Thurber). James Thurber was a cartoonist and an author. He was born on December 8th 1984 to his parents, Charles and Mary Thurber. Thurber’s father was a clerk and a minor politician, while his mother was a practical joker and very strong-minded. For example his mother would tell visiting guests that she was in love the post man and she had to be kept in the attic because of it. She would also tell people that she was a cripple and then she would suddenly stand up and tell everyone she had miraculously healed(James Thurber 1 of 5). James Thurber also had two brothers, William and Robert. When Thurber and William were little, they were playing with a bow and arrow, and William shot James in the eye. This led James to be partially blind and because of this injury he couldn’t participate in any sports or activities, but this injury developed a very creative imagination in Thurber’s mind. A neurologist at the time had a theory that he might have Charles Bonnet Syndrome, which is a condition......

His sophomore and junior year of high school he was being compared to the greatest basketball players of all time (LeBron James, 2005).

James

...James was born James Ambrose Johnson Jr. in Buffalo, New York, in 1948. He was one of eight children in a family headed by an abusive father who left when James was just seven. From his mother, once a Katherine Dunham dancer who had worked at some of Harlem's most prestigious nightclubs, James learned at an early age about the possibilities show business offered. But with eight kids in her single-parent household in Buffalo, Mabel Johnson's glamorous days were long over--instead of dancing, she worked as a cleaning woman and ran numbers on the side for a local organized crime racket. Through this she was able to clothe and feed her children, and was also able to send some to private school. James went to a Catholic school for a time--even serving as an altar boy--but its strict rules and his love of sports could not keep him out of trouble by the time he entered his teens. His formative years were marked by an increasing penchant for cutting class, petty crime, and a burgeoning relationship with juvenile authorities. Though James seemed on the road to a dead-end future, it was a talent show he entered in high school that finally provided him with the focus his life needed. When he took the stage, "I started off with a bongo beat," James wrote in the manuscript for his autobiography, Memoirs of a Super Freak, reprinted in a 1996 Rolling Stone interview with Mike Sager. "Then I began to sing out this chant. I asked the crowd to sing along, and they did. The feeling of the......

Henry James

...HENRY JAMES ( 1843 - 1916 ) Henry James was born an American and Joseph Conrad a Pole. Each chose to settle in England to become a British subject and for each, the collision of different cultures was an important themes. The relation of America to Europe is a central concern in James’ fiction : in major novels such as “ The Portrait Of A Lady “(1881), “ The Wings Of The Dove” ( 1902 ),or “ Daisy Miller” (1879) the moral consequences of the meeting of American innocence and enthusiasm with a sophisticated but corrupt European culture are explored by means of irony , a sustained attention to the nuances of individual CONSCIOUSNESS , and a prose style of increasing subtlety and complexity . But in their technique James and Conrad are most revolutionary .Modernist novelists sought radical redefinition of the REAL. Since the individual always perceives reality through his or her own consciousness , the contents and structure of consciousness represent the only accessible reality .A number of philosophical influences are relevant here : William James ‘ Henry James’ brother ‘ a psychologist and philosopher elaborated the notion of “pure experience”, all reality being described in terms of SUBJECTIVE HUMAN EXPERIENCE ( and he also named the new trend “ stream of consciousness”). Sigmund Freud (1856- 1939) had had an enormous influence upon modern literature as a result of his idea that “ all mental phenomena have......

James Brown

...James Joseph Brown[1] (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006) was an American singer and dancer. The founding father of funk music and a major figure of 20th-century popular music and dance, he is often referred to as "The Godfather of Soul". In a career that spanned six decades, Brown influenced the development of several music genres.[2] Brown began his career as a gospel singer in Toccoa, Georgia. Joining an R&B vocal group called the Avons that later evolved to become The Famous Flames, Brown served as the group's lead singer.[3][4] First coming to national public attention in the late 1950s as a member of The Flames with the hit ballads "Please, Please, Please" and "Try Me", Brown built a reputation as a tireless live performer with the Famous Flames and his backing band, sometimes known as the James Brown Band or the James Brown Orchestra. Brown's success peaked in the 1960s with the live album Live at the Apollo and hit singles such as "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag", "I Got You (I Feel Good)" and "It's a Man's Man's Man's World". During the late 1960s, Brown moved from a continuum of blues and gospel-based forms and styles to a profoundly "Africanized" approach to music-making that influenced the development of funk music.[5] By the early 1970s, Brown had fully established the funk sound after the formation of The J.B.'s with records such as "Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine" and "The Payback". Brown also became notable for songs of social commentary, including......

James Marshall

...James Marshall James Marshall is an illustrator and author of popular children books. ”Although he had no formal art training, Mr. Marshall illustrated more than 70 books. He also wrote many of them, sometimes using the pseudonym Edward Marshall. His work, featuring cartoonish figures and whimsical plots, appealed to parents as well as children” (Lambert www.newyorktimes.com). His book career started by chance. Friends encouraged him to pursue his longtime hobby of sketching, and he began doing newspaper illustrations and then books. Several early books were collaborations with Harry Allard as the writer. Three times hi books were listed among the best illustrated children’s books of the year by The New York Times Book Reviews. Red Riding Hood by James Marshall is a retelling of the traditional folktale. The illustrations and text add humor to the suspenseful tale. This gently humorous retelling of the classic fairytale of Little Red Riding Hood combines the familiar Grimm Brothers tale with appealing engaging character. The characters’ personalities come alive through the boldly colored detailed cartoon style watercolor and black ink line illustrations. The simple text works well with the sprinkling of subtle humorous illustrations, like the empty box of after dinner mints next to the loud snoring wolf. Red Riding Hood encounters a wolf on the way to her grandmother’s house, and is later tricked into thinking the wolf is her grandmother. At the end Red Riding Hood proves......

...there always are.) · Recruit participants who match your target profile for pilot studies. This means that any feedback — about the study or about the site being tested— will be more relevant. In a pinch, recruiting someone who doesn’t quite fit the profile is typically better than not running a pilot test at all, but the results from those sessions then would not be applicable in the final study. · Does running a pilot study take extra time? Of course. Materials need to be ready earlier, extra participants need to be recruited, and time needs to be scheduled to run the sessions. The payoff, however, is that the final study will run more smoothly, making it easier to get the results that matter to your team and, ultimately, your product.

James Dimon

...James “Jamie” Dimon, JPMorgan Chase's CEO, is one of America's most powerful and outspoken bankers. Dimon's career in the brokerage business seemed preordained by his lineage. His grandfather, a Greek immigrant from Smyrna, was a broker and passed on his knowledge of the business to his son and partner, Theodore Dimon. Jamie Dimon's father and grandfather worked together for 19 years, and Dimon worked summers in their New York office. In 1978 Dimon graduated cum laude from Tufts University. He worked for the Management Analysis Center, a consulting firm in Boston, for several years and then enrolled in Harvard Business School. While a student at Harvard, Dimon interned at Goldman Sachs and was offered a job there after graduation in 1982. He declined, instead going to work for the mentor who would profoundly shape his career: Sandy Weill. From 1982 to 1985 Weill and Dimon teamed up at American Express, where Dimon signed on as vice president and assistant to the president. Dimon's abilities to crunch numbers meshed well with Weill's people skills. When Weill was forced out of American Express, he made Dimon his second in command at the little-known consumer-lending outfit that he bought called Commercial Credit Company. That tiny firm was the beginning of what would eventually become Citigroup. Dimon was a key member of the team that launched and defined Commercial Credit's strategy. He served as the company's chief financial officer and an executive vice president and......
