As the director of a local television station I have two breaking news stories to share with our viewers. I have decided to report about the vote of the city council to close the city parks three days a week to save money. The second story we will report on will be the death of a celebrity.

I decided to go with the council vote as my lead story because of the impact it has on the local population. Closing down the parks for three days will force the parents to find alternative places for their children to play. In today’s society children recreation is defined by Xbox, Wii and PlayStation. With rise of obesity among our children limiting the availability of the parks for the sake of money is poor politics. The city council should reconvene to find new approaches to saving money besides closing city parks. One submission is that we as a local television station can help promote a fund-raiser for the sole purpose of raising fund to keep the parks open for one or three of the days.

Reporting on the death of a celebrity does not have the local concern of effect of the city parks story. Another reason I have chosen to make this my secondary story is that this story will possibly be reported on a larger media outlet. As a local television media we believe committed to our hometown citizens should be focus. Also putting the celebrity’s death second still keep our local informed of national news. By us reporting about the death of the actor will still maintain whatever rating we would have gotten if we reported it first.

As a local television station we have an advantage over the large media station because we the opportunity to keep locals informed of all four regions of news. Local, state, national, and world news are all at our disposal to report. Another advantage we have is the interest we have from the local without spending…...

...The writing process begins the minute you get a writing assignment—whether you are writing a book, an essay, or a single paragraph. It involves all the activities you do, from choosing a topic to turning in a final draft. The phases, or stages, of the writing process are prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing. Prewriting Prewriting refers to all activities that help you explore a subject, generate ideas about it, choose a specific topic, establish a purpose, and analyze the audience for your paragraph or essay. Your mission at this stage is to stimulate your thinking before and during the act of writing. Every time you think of a new idea during the writing process, you are prewriting. Drafting When you have lots of ideas to work with, you are ready to start drafting. Drafting involves writing down your thoughts, developing or expanding some ideas, organizing your thoughts to reflect your purpose, and writing a first version of your paragraph or essay. To start on your draft, you may want to spread out your class notes, journal entries, and other prewriting notes so that you can start to string your ideas together. This is the time to keep your thoughts flowing without worrying too much about grammar, punctuation, mechanics, or spelling. Revising As you may suspect, the process of writing is not finished with your first draft. You should always revise your work to make it stronger and better. Revising involves rethinking your content and organization so that your......

Comprehensive Income and Other Comprehensive Income

...Haydee Tejada February 13, 2011 Case 2 a. Define Comprehensive and Other Comprehensive Income. b. Discuss alternative formats for reporting comprehensive income. c. Explain the usefulness of reporting the components of comprehensive income. Section 220 of the FASB codification discusses comprehensive income and all that’s included when reporting. Comprehensive income is the change in equity of a business during a period from transactions and other events and circumstances from nonowner sources. Comprehensive income includes all changes in equity during a period except those resulting from investments by owners and distributions to owners (FASB ASC 220-10-10-1). Other comprehensive income are the revenues, expenses, gains, and losses that under GAAP are included in comprehensive but excluded from net income (FASB ASC 220-10-15-3). When reporting comprehensive income, it should be presented in two sections, net income and other comprehensive income. The financial statement should show the total amount for net income together with the components that make up net income, the total amount for other comprehensive income together with the components that make up other comprehensive income, and total comprehensive income (FASB ASC 220-10-45-1A). Some items of other comprehensive income includes foreign currency translation adjustments, gains and losses on foreign currency transactions that are designated as economic hedges of a net investment in a foreign entity,......

Comprehensive Leadership

...Comprehensive Leadership “People ask me, would you rather be feared or loved, um easy, I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.”, Michael Scott, General Manager-The Office. This was the first thing I thought of when assigned a comprehensive leadership paper, and I figured something funny always draws the reader in. I want to start my paper with my leadership interview. As I mentioned in class, I wanted to get more of an honest interview with my sweet, yet beleaguered new Plant Manager. He is not only a wonderful man, but also being assigned to our facility to develop and nurture a not yet defined “culture”; he has done so with patience and class. On his first day, he spoke to all of us in our break area, stating he wanted to know who we were, what our spouse’s name was, what some of our hobbies were, and where we saw ourselves in the scheme of our corporation. What challenges I foresee my manager facing is not the newer employees in our facility, but the manufacturers and line men that have been working for thirty plus years. It has been my experience that if you can really get through to the old timers, you have won half the battle trying to change the culture because they are the influencers. Do you think leadership develops with experience? Experience is the only way I have gotten better with anything I have done. To be more specific the more I failed, the better I got at what I had set my goal to. Are there one or two experiences you look back on...

Comprehensive Reading

...Comprehensive reading for an active young adult , who is a busy parent, full time employee, and extremely active can be time consuming.  For these catagories of people, my advice is to set the goal,  prioritize, plan accordingly and manage time effectively during the week. If the goal is to comprehensively read 100 pages in a weeks worth, my advice is to consider reading in between the working hours, parent hours, and the other activities hours.  This will allow for the reading material not to interfere with any other activities. Prioritizing is putting the most important task at the top.   For these categories of people, my advice is  consider  the full time job  to be the top priority, since it is what he/she gets paid to do.  Second, it will be parent time, third will be reading time, leaving the other activity time for last.  Also, keep in mind that at times the unexpected can take priority.  Factors to consider are taking a sick child to the doctor or perhaps he or she  can become sick and requires medical attention. Planning can help these categories of people accomplish more and feel more in control of their life. My advice to start is by taking several minutes to write down what he or she hopes to accomplish in a week.  Using a weekly planner,  he or she can begin by blocking the times he or she plans to use for work, parenting, and reading since these can be planned in advance and are not as flexible as the other activity hours.     Time management is using the...

...1130 January 2016 A Writing Experience Writing has never been my forte. At best, I survived the earlier years of my school life with average remarks from English teachers who assessed me. However, due to a lack of confidence in my own writing, English classes became incredibly difficult in my final years of high-school. Attempting to obtain better grades, I recall trying to absorb the almost formulaic method of writing my grade 11 and 12 teachers taught, and applied it. Nevertheless, I understood that this method was clearly not improving anything when I received my mark for the English 12 provincial. Being ill prepared for post-secondary writing is not a situation unique to myself. Rather, it is a common phenomenon for student writers of my generation. As mentioned, many student writers of my generation suffer from the same lack of proper writing education as I did when stepping into the world of post-secondary. In fact, recent studies suggest that the writing process being primed into student writers like myself during high-school is too linear, and fails to prepare them for the level of writing post-secondary schools demand for. This is because student writers are being educated to “separate the writing process into discrete stages” (Sommers 135). Moreover, due to the linear nature of current models of the writing process taught in schools, students tend to write in ways that resemble speech and as a result, neglect an important stage in writing: revision. ......
