As the set designer for The Winslow Boy, I have made several decisions to reflect the characters and to create an accurate re-imagination of a early 1900’s household.

Such as: A warm fireplace adjacent to Arthurs chair, to indicate the warmth and heart of the family. The chair will be placed near to show that Arthur is in a position to look after and protect the family. Arthurs chair will be made out of high quality leather as leather is often used to represent solidity and hardness and masculinity, showing that Arthur is quite a masculine and dominant figure. The chair must be clearly a high quality and long lasting piece of furniture. As if we refer back to the text Arthur mentions he still receives a ‘small pension’ from the bank, meaning Arthur used to work in the bank, which shows he has knowledge on the value of money meaning he perhaps bought the chair as it would last long and be an investment in the long run. The high quality will also help explain to the audience that the Winslow family is quite rich and upper class. Directly on top of the fireplace there shall some old fashioned frames with specific photos. The first, which will be placed on the right, will be of a man, quite old, which is Arthurs father Winslow, to show Arthur and the family have great respect for his father and shows Arthur is a character who strives to be as respected. The second, will be placed in the middle; a large portrait of the 5 members of the Winslow family, Arthur and Catherine on the far right, to emphasize the closeness of Catharine and her father. Then in the centre of the portrait we shall have Grace and Ronnie, the mother and son, too show that these two characters have a close relation and his mother may be doing something motherly like holding Ronnie’s shoulders while he is sat down. And finally in the left hand side, standing in solitude, there’s Dickie. Who will be…...

Boys Will Be Boys

...People often say, “boys will be boys,” or “boys don’t cry.” What do these phrases really mean? Are boys really pre-determined to be aggressive and emotionless? Co-authors of Raising Cain, Dan Kindlon and Michael Thompson, would argue that this is not the case. As psychologists specializing in helping young males, Kindlon and Thompson bring to light the notion that boys are just as emotional as their female counterparts. They show how a boy without a good understanding of his emotions will likely face many difficulties in his upbringing. Reflecting on my own adolescence experiences, I feel like I am able to validate the claims of Kindlon and Thompson. The main argument expressed in the passage is that “boys need an emotional vocabulary. They need to experience empathy at home and school…they need modeling of a rich emotional life.” (7) Without this, they argue that boys are destined to struggle throughout their childhood and adolescence. “They are forced to manage conflict, adversity, and change in his life with a limited emotional repertoire.” (4) I never realized it at the time, but looking back, I can tell that my parents always fostered the growth of my emotional vocabulary. If I had a problem at school, my parents encouraged me to talk to them about it. If I was in an argument with my brother, we were separated and asked to talk over how we felt. Never did my parents try to shy me away from showing and understanding my emotions. As a result, I never had any of the......

...Talent Working For You” Why Concentrica? Many of the companies we speak to despair at the idea of telemarketing because of bad experiences in the past.

We understand the pitfalls and our experienced team therefore only deliver highly effective lead generation, business development and outsourced sales services, across a wide portfolio of IT based solutions. With enviable credentials and a proven history in delivering effective business development services, our key differentiators are manifest in the facts that all projects undertaken have 'hands on' involvement from at least one Concentrica director and that we never use inexperienced graduates. These considerations are vital when articulating the more complex sales proposition and importantly, where a requirement exists to minimize the lead time to effective project initiation. The approach therefore, which our long term clients particularly value is to provide a seamless extension to their sales force.

...that shareholders elect directors who, in turn, hire management to carry out their directives. Shareholders, therefore, control the corporation through the right to elect the directors. Generally, only shareholders have this right. Directors are elected each year at an annual meeting. Although there are exceptions (discussed next), the general idea is “one share, one vote” (not one shareholder, one vote). Corporate democracy is thus very different from our political democracy. With corporate democracy, the “golden rule” prevails absolutely.3 Directors are elected at an annual shareholders’ meeting by a vote of the holders of a majority of shares who are present and entitled to vote. However, the exact mechanism for electing directors differs across companies. The most important difference is whether shares must be voted cumulatively or voted straight. To illustrate the two different voting procedures, imagine that a corporation has two shareholders: Smith with 20 shares and Jones with 80 shares. Both want to be a director. Jones does not want Smith, however. We assume there are a total of four directors to be elected. The effect of cumulative voting is to permit minority participation.4 If cumulative voting is permitted, the total number of votes that each shareholder may cast is determined first. This is usually calculated as the number of shares (owned or controlled) multiplied by the number of directors to be elected. With cumulative voting, the directors are elected all......

Comments and suggestions for improvement: Heading The addition of the company logo adds credibility to the document, but it does utilize quite a bit of space. 1. A memorandum is most often limited to one page 2. The memorandum is not dated 3. The sender and each recipient’s title should be included 4. In the To: area, the second line (including the last name “Lord”) should be indented 5. The Heading should be double spaced 6. The sender should initial the memorandum next to his/her name Clarity The first paragraph seems to logically set the stage for why the initial decision was made to locate Riodan Manufacturing’s China operations to the city of Hangzhou due to the proximity to the Qiantang River. This gives the recipients good background information. The second paragraph indicates the need for the move; however additional details are needed. Statistics such as production volume increases and expected savings don’t seem to be substantiated in this document, although mentioned twice. I found the bullets to be somewhat confusing, perhaps not really needed, too long, or needing to be rewritten. Adding a few destinations for the products might be helpful. The sentence pertaining to the cost of the local trucking companies seems confusing and likely not needed. The......

...relations approach is one of the neo-classical theory. This theory was developed around 1920 and emerged out of the human relations movement. This movement laid greater on the man managing the machines and stressed the importance of individual as well as the group relationship. The theory emphasises the role of psychology and sociology in the understanding of individual as well as group behaviour in an organisation. Thus, what was advocated, was the relevance of the human values in an organisation. It were Elton Mayo and his associates who conducted studies in the Hawthrone Works of Western Electric Company, Chicago, U.S A. between 1927 and 1932. The study covered more than 20,000 workers. These studies can be divided into four stages. By these studies, the researchers discovered many areas of the application of human relations approach. The researchers' general conclusion was that non-logical behaviour or sentiments among workers must be considered along with economic and other logical factors as influencing the work group. This approach was advocated by them because of the following reasons : (1) Employees in any organisation get satisfaction not by economic incentives but by the satisfaction of many other social and psychological wants, feelings desires and so on. (2) The business organisation itself is a social system or at least part of it. Scientific management theory was developed in the early 20th century by Frederick W. Taylor. We will be......

...capacity and encourage individuals to act upon it – to lead small teams of people and apply that leadership in business” (Little, 2008). West Central is a human service organization that serves the low income. Most of our staff that has direct client contact are very compassionate people, but, lack the leadership skills to properly guide the staff they supervise. We also have a number of staff that have been promoted and are now in a supervisory position, and while their skill set for completing the mechanics of the jobs is there, the leadership component is missing. As identified by Little, we need a leadership program that will harness the staff’s leadership capacity so they can lead. Objectives In an interview with the Executive Director of West Central, the objective of the leadership development program would be to enhance leadership skills for the participants by providing appropriate activities, experiences, training to increase the probability of success for each participant; establish a peer coaching network that involves the participants and West Central’s management team and provide ongoing assessment of the progress of the program as well as an assessment of the success of the program overall. These objectives would be accomplished over a five month period and would consist of planned activities, training sessions, peer-networking and journaling. Intensive two day sessions would be held every month at the main office and the program would be administered by......

About a Boy

...About a Boy Loneliness is a feeling we all know. We all feel it sometimes. It sneaks in on you and drags you somewhere dark. For some people this is a constant feeling. For some people it doesn’t just stop here. If you’re lonely for a long time, you will often start to feel a little weird and abnormal. You will eventually even get left out from the group. This is what happens to the boy named Marcus in the film “About a Boy”. We get a sight into Marcus’ turbulent life, where he struggles with loneliness because of bullies. The first time we are introduced to this boy named Marcus, is when Will, a single man, takes a friend of Marcus’ mom out on a date. She’s called Suzie and promised Marcus’ mother, Fiona, to take care of him. Will seems nice and protective over Marcus. Especially when Marcus almost is claimed for killing a duck with a loaf of bread. Will here takes place and tells the park keeper, that is was already dead. What none of them know of, is that Will isn’t exactly who they think he is. Will attends a group for single parents, but actually, he has no kids at all. However, he pretends to have a two-year-old son named Ned. When Will first meets Marcus, he has the feeling, that he is a little bit weird. That thought soon gets confirmed. When Will and his date Suzie stops by Marcus’ house to drop him off, they find his mother Fiona, passed out on the couch. Fiona has taken an overdose and attempted suicide. This is the environment Marcus lives in. Marcus is......

As a Director, How Would You Stage the Printed Extract from Your Chosen Set Play in Order to Bring Out Your Interpretation of It for an Audience?

...As a director, how would you stage the printed extract from your chosen set play in order to bring out your interpretation of it for an audience? Your answers should include justified suggestions for the director of your cast and for the design of the piece as appropriate to the style of the play and to your creative overview of it. A View from the Bridge is a naturalist play written by Arthur Miller in 1955. It follows the Carbone family as they welcome two illegal immigrants into their home while they work to make money for their families back in Italy. However, the head of the household, Eddie doesn’t take a liking to one of the immigrants, Rodolpho. As Rodolpho and Eddie’s niece, Catherine get closer and closer it angers Eddie. This anger ultimately leads to his dead. The play deals with themes such as love, family and honour. In this extract, Catherine and Rodolpho have returned from seeing a film to Eddie waiting for them in the street. Eddie discussed Catherine’s relationship with Rodolpho with her and towards the end of the exact brings up the fact that Rodolpho may only want to be in a relationship with her for his American citizenship. While directing this scene, my intensions would be for the audience to feel sympathy for Eddie and a sadness for Catherine. As well as this, I would also want them to feel a new unease towards Rodolpho as this will be the first time the audience will see that Rodolpho may have ulterior motives for his relationship with Catherine. ...
