Sally Mann “It never occurred to me to leave home to make art.”(What Remains) This was just one of the many powerful statements made by Sally Mann as she explains how her fascination with photography began and followed her throughout her life. Sally Mann was born in Lexington, Virginia in 1951. She is still living and photographing there today. Mann has been photographing since the 1970s. She produces portraits, photos of buildings and architecture, and still life photographs. She has also begun to transition into a landscape photographer. She is best known for her photographs of her family, her three children and her husband Larry. Mann is known for her black and white wet collodion photos. Sally Mann is famous for her influential work, although her work has attracted much controversy at times, and “since her the time of her first solo exhibition, at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., in 1977, she has attracted a wide audience.”(Woodward 29) There was much debate about some of Sally Mann’s work, especially when she published a collection of photographs of her children in 1990 called, “Immediate Family.” Mann’s collection included pictures of her young children topless or at times fully nude. When Mann came out with this body of work there was a outrage among the community about child pornography. Due to poor timing Mann’s work took the brunt of speculation simply because she photographed her children in the nude. Sally mentions while talking to her mother in a video that was made of her work, that as a child she never wore clothes, and that her children were no different. Mann states, “I really wasn’t trying to push anyone’s buttons, I just was responding to things that appealed to me.” (What Remains) The public viewed this as a possible form of pornography, while Mann simply viewed Immediate Family as raw…...

Sally Jameson Case Study

...1 If we ignore tax considerations and assume that Sally Jameson is free to sell her stock options at any time after she joins Telstar she has several options. She can either choose to take the cash bonus, the stock options and sell it, or she can take the option and keep it until it is worth use. Let’s compare the three situations that we choose to analyse : 1- She takes the cash bonus and decide to invest it in a 5-year bond which has a anualize rate of 6.02%. So at the end she will win 5310$ (=5000*1.0602). 2- She takes the options in order to sell her stock options. Let’s assume that it is easy to find someone who want to buy the option at the value of the call option. Using the exhibit 3, the standard deviation of the Telstar common stock is 30%. S= 18.75 K= 35 r= 6.02% t= 5 σ= 30% So C= 2.9245 Assuming that she can easily and quickly find someone to buy her options, she can sell it at 3000*2.9245= 8773.5$ Then she could even invest these 8773,5$ in a 5years bond and win 8773,5*1,0602=9301,7$ 3- She keeps the options until it is worth use it and sell her shares. If she wants to earn more than she could have won by taking the cash bonus we have to find the value of the stock that would make her win more than 5301$  (X-35)*3000=5301 => X= 36,767 So when the value of the stocks is greater than 36,767, it will be worth using the option and sell the shares after. Sally Jameson will win more than 5301. If she want to......

Sally Satel

...A Second Chance at Life Sally Satel’s argument in “Death’s Waiting List”, states that there is an extreme lack of organ donors in this society. “70,000 Americans are waiting for kidneys, according to The United Network for Organ Sharing” and “only about 16,000 people received one last year. “ In large cities, where the ratio of acceptable organs to needy patients is worst, the wait is five to eight years and is expected to double by 2014 “. There is no reason why the wait should be this long because any one can be an organ donor and Satel does a great job of explaining the benefits throughout in her essay. As a previous member of the waiting list, Satel resorted to desperate measures when she considered going to the black market to obtain a kidney that she needed as well as trying a website called matchingdonors.com. She was lucky enough to find a match on the website, but unfortunately he fell through. As far as the black market goes, she thought it was too risky and unsafe even though she was in a life or death situation. This all could have been prevented if more people in our country were to consider themselves organ donors. If the black market isn’t safe for buying movies or getting music illegally, then it is definitely not safe for buying a kidney. This small statement in Satel’s essay provides a shocking emotional appeal to the readers. She brought up a great point that in most European countries, they practice “presumed consent” which is when “all citizens......

Sally Jameson Option Valuing Case Study

...Sally Jameson: Valuing Stock Options in a Compensation Package By Group 10 1. If we ignore tax consideration and assume that Sally Jameson is free to sell her options at any time after she joins Telstar, which compensation package is worth more? First scenario, if Sally chooses stock options and hold until maturity date. Ignoring the taxation and other constraints, the future value of cash compensation at the end of the 5th year will be 5000 * (1 + 0.0602) ^ 5 = 6697.44. We can easily form the equation 3000 * (P – 35) = 6697.44, where P is the future stock price of Telstar, so the stock price must increase to at least 37.23 at the end of 5th year to get the same amount of the cash compensation and if the stock price where to stay below 35, Sally’ option would be worth nothing. The stock, which pays no dividend and is not expected to pay one in the foreseeable future, is trading at 18.75. It seems significant difference between the exercise price and the spot price. As shown in Exhibit 2, Telstar stock price has increased higher than $35 only once and 10-year average stock price is around 20. Therefore, the chance that the value of option is greater than the cash compensation is very rare. Second scenario, assume Sally is free to sell options at any time after her joining Telstar, she may sell her option immediately after receiving. Then we try to price the value of stock option by using Black - Scholes Model. We know that the stock is currently trading at $18.75...

Fire at Mann Gulch

...rapidly amid lighter fuel that burned quickly, and how the temperature had reached a record high that day. These factors that Dodge was unable to mention clearly mislead the smokejumpers into their fatal end. Dodge’s decision on how to escape was both rational and intuitive in the sense that he took into account all the factors mentioned above, while at the same time, somehow concluding that setting the escape fire could work (a practice he had never heard of before). Instead of explaining the basis for his intuition, he simply yelled to the others “This way!” so his action was seen as one of madness, therefore making it even less likely for the crew to follow him. The main reason that twelve out of fifteen team members perished that day in Mann Gulch was because, organizationally speaking, they were faced with constraints worth mentioning. More specifically, we refer to them as “the system-imposed time constraints” (Robbins and Judge, 2011). Under those dramatic circumstances, the firefighters were forced to make a quick decision without gathering all the needed information they would have liked to collect. Time was critical and every second lost was like getting closer to death so they could only act based on the few options they visualized. Dodge, in the other hand, had a relative advantage, as he was more knowledgeable and possessed more information which he successfully applied to survive the catastrophe. Dodge’s many years of experience, exposure, and......

Harry Met Sally

...Kyle Moore Interpersonal Communication 4/24/13 When Harry Met Sally After viewing this film I knew there were multiple different aspects within the dialog. The interaction between these two over many years made it possible for them to go from complete strangers to falling in love. It didn’t happen overnight and there many different actions that lead them to realize that they were destined for each other. One of the most interesting aspects I found deals with the social penetration model. When they first meet to take the road trip they only knew each other through mutual friends so needless to say it was a little awkward at first but throughout the story they begin to come closer and closer together. Even though it took a while for Sally to open up she eventually showed a more open and emotional side to Harry which led them to sleep together for the first time. Before that happened most of the conversations were just small talk and Harry asking Sally about her sex life. I thought Harry to be physically attracted to her from the begging but as he states, “Girls and guys can’t be friends.” His theory has to do with physical attraction and the fact that all men will want to be sexually active or at least have it in the back of their mind if they are close acquaintances with an attractive female. From the beginning Sally’s self-monitoring was very high and she didn’t really tell Harry anything to personal. She was defensive and had a very straight forward personality. As......

Horace Mann

...The 1830s and 40s Horace Mann, the End of Free-Market Education, and the Rise of Government Schools During the three decades preceding the Civil War, two significant developments occurred in popular education in the United States.   The first is that the foundations were laid for a governmental takeover of education, and the second is that the historical role of schools in transmitting religious traditions gave way to more secular goals.  The educational reform movement that marked the turning point in United States educational history originated in, and was dominated by, the example of Massachusetts and its political leaders, particularly Horace Mann. Horace Mann was born to a family of farmers in Franklin, Massachusetts, on May 4, 1796.  His lineage included some of the earliest Puritan settlers who practiced a "severe brand of Calvinism."[19]  At the age of twelve, the bookish and introspective Mann rejected Calvinism and focused his attention on educating himself.  He graduated from Brown University in 1819 and, following law school in Connecticut, became a practicing attorney in Boston in 1825. Mann's interest in politics and law and his views and skills as an orator soon catapulted him into the Massachusetts legislature.  It was as president of the State Senate that he became intimately involved in the movement to concentrate control of education in the hands of state. The fight to bring education under the control of government was essentially a fight over the......

Der Dressierte Mann

...Esther Vilar Der dressierte MANN Vilar hat den Emanzipations-Spieß umgedreht: Herr im Haus ist die Frau. Sie dressiert den Mann mit heimtückischen Tricks zum unterwürfigen Sklaven und schickt ihn dann zum Geldverdienen hinaus ins feindliche Leben. »Als Gegenleistung« stellt sie ihm »ihre Vagina in bestimmten Intervallen zur Verfügung«. So schwungvoll bissig, doch nicht ganz ohne Charme, löst Esther Vilar das Uralt-Rätsel um den Mythos Frau und entlarvt ihre Geschlechtsgenossinnen als hartgesottene Ausbeuterinnen, die allein aus ihrer Anatomie gehörig Kapital schlagen (Der Spiegel, Hamburg). Ein brillant geschriebenes, lustiges, provozierendes Buch (Neue Ruhr Zeitung, Essen). Esther Vilar reizt in vielen ihrer ketzerischen Gedanken zum Widerspruch. Aber ehrlich - ja, ehrlich kann man ihr nicht widersprechen (Abendzeitung, München). Man nennt sie den »Karl Marx der Männer« (Kölner Stadtanzeiger). Den Männern zugeflüstert: was die Vilar vom Verhältnis der Frauen untereinander schreibt, ist unbedingt lesenswert (Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin). Die erste Männerrechtlerin der literarischen Szene (Titel, Thesen, Temperamente - Deutsches Fernsehen). Mit Wagnermusik hat die Vilar gemeinsam: der Zuhörer kann sich ihr gegenüber nur mit Not neutral verhalten. Entweder ist er für oder gegen sie. Angesteckt vom Zorn der Autorin, kann der Leser bei der Lektüre lediglich zum Vilaristen oder zum erklärten Feind werden (Deutsches Allgemeines Sonntagsblatt, Hamburg). Wenn es noch Leute gäbe, die......

Thomas Manns Influences

...Works Thomas Mann once said “Every reasonable human being should be a moderate Socialist.” This quote is the cumulative result of a life time of influences from the writers and culture that surrounded Mann. During the spread of eighty years, Mann was exposed to many influential writers: Friedrich Nietzsche, Arthur Schopenhauer, Richard Wagner, and Hermann Bahr. Aside from the writers that Mann was influenced by, Mann was influenced by the German culture that surrounded him growing up in Lübeck, Germany. Researching Mann and finding sources that were critical of Mann was difficult, especially when it came to finding print sources. This is perhaps due to Mann's life being rather unimportant when compared to how influential and philosophical his works are. His works have so much depth and hiding meaning and cause contained within their covers that critics would much rather criticize his works than Mann himself. Another reason quite possibly be, that to criticize Mann's work a critic does not have to know Mann's background because of how well and precise Mann conveys and illustrates the ideals and philosophies of those who influenced him while writing. Nietzsche, influences nearly all of Mann's short stories and novels, whether it be that Mann quoted him or built antitheses off Nietzsche ideals or even based an essay completely off of a writing of Nietzsche. Mann has been accounted stating that he was undoubtedly a Nietzschean (Robertson 27). This being, Mann wrote in his “A...

Sally Jameson Case

...9-293-053 REV: AUGUST 19, 2003 PETER TUFANO Sally Jameson: Valuing Stock Options in a Compensation Package Sally Jameson, a second-year MBA student at Harvard Business School, was thrilled but confused. It was late May 1992, graduation was approaching, and she had finally landed the job of her choice. She had just finished an early morning telephone conversation with Bob Marks, the MBA recruiting coordinator at Telstar Communications, a large, publicly held multinational company. Mr. Marks had offered Ms. Jameson a unique position in operations at Telstar, and from the description, it sounded exactly like the job that she wanted. Since her first interview with Telstar, she had been very impressed with the company and its people. While Ms. Jameson was certain that she would accept the job, there was still one unsettled, yet crucial, matter--her compensation. During the conversation with Marks, Jameson had asked what her compensation package would be. Marks: "Well, Sally, we are all very impressed with you and would like to offer you a starting salary of $50,000. In addition, you will also receive a signing bonus." Jameson: "The base salary is a little below what I had expected. Is that negotiable?" Marks: "I'm afraid not. That's the same starting package all MBAs get. However, you will receive a bonus upon accepting our offer. You can receive $5,000 in cash, or choose stock options instead." Jameson: "I'm not too familiar with stock options. Could......

Sally Jameson

...Sally’s Compensation It’s the season for snow-melting, it’s the season for career interviews, and it’s also the season, hopefully, for lower unemployment rate. Sally Jameson, an MBA student graduated from the ivory tower HBS, is one of the lucky graduates and got a job from Telstar. Additionally, the generous employer offers her a special compensation package – she could choose either cash of $5,000 or 3,000 special options that allow her to buy as many as 3000 shares of Telstar’s stocks for $35.00 at her 5th anniversary employment. Today is May 27, 1992, we have a list of quotations of Short- and Long-term Call Options of Telstar stocks, a list of historical price and volatility of Telstar Common Stock since Jan, 82, and a list of T-bill security yields. Now we are here to help her make a choice. I. B-S Model for option pricing Today is the final day for Sally to make a choice, we relies on the famous Black-Scholes Model to price the options in the compensation. Before pricing, we need to know the volatility and the continuous compounded interest rate. For interest rate, we regard the 5 years T-bill bond yields as the “risk-free” rate and assume Sally and other investors of Telstar are risk-neutral. 1+5*BEY5yr=exp5r, where BEY5yr is the annualized Treasury Bill’s bond equivalent yield and r is the continuous compounded interest rate we want to derive, which is 5.2627%. Secondly, since historical volatility could not perfectly reflect the scenarios in the future...

Sally Version Alternativa

...Sally Jameson: Valuing Stock Options in a Compensation Package (Abridged) Group Satie: Ai Nakajima, Chen-Wei Tang, Mithun Sridharan, Sarah Wright, Daniel de la Cuesta 23th May 2012 If we ignore tax considerations and assume that Sally Jameson is free to sell her options at any time after she joins Telstar, which compensation package is worth more? We can calculate the value of the stock options today using the Black-Scholes Model. If the value of the 3000 Sally´s stock options is greater than $5000 and she has the possibility to sell the options, then she should go for the stock options instead of the cash. To calculate the value of the stock options today we have to find the volatility of the stock. In this case we are going to calculate the “historical implied volatility”, which refers to the implied volatility observed from historical prices of the stock. We have the historical price of the stock for the last 10 years so we calculate the gains for each value compared with the previous one (P1/PO) and we convert them to the logarithmic scale (LN(P1/P0)). After that, we calculate the standard deviation of the time serie and we multiply it by SQRT(252) to get the annualized volatility. The final value for the volatility is 0.3689. Now we have all the data to calculate the current fair value of the stock options offered to Sally: Option Price P 23 Exercise price X 35 Current Stock Price S 18.75 Risk-Free Rate r 4.07% Maturity of the......

Sally Case

...Sally Case One significant flaw in how overhead costs is allocated by Sally under in the ABC systems is, her application of the 150% for both the internal control and information systems departments. The flaw here is that Sally is kind of using both the ABC and the standard cost system at the same time in determining the charge out rate for the two departments. This will inflate the charge out rate for the internal control consulting, with the information system consulting been reduced, considering the activities performed in the information systems consulting which includes software development, installation, conversion assistance, and training. Yes The key here is that we would be basing the cost driver rate by actual capacity, not practical capacity so cost issues could still be hidden and there is not incentive to be more efficient. For example, it may turn out they have similar subscriptions or four people have the same subscription and they don’t know. 1/4 D Since Sally’s company is a service company, activity based costing is ideally suited for her organization. This is because virtually all the cost of her firm is indirect and appears to be fixed. The large component of apparently fixed costs in her firm arises because, unlike manufacturing companies, service companies have virtually no material costs—the prime source of short-term variable costs. Three ways in which ABC leads to accurate product cost for Sally are outlined below. Firstly, ABC provides more......
