...According to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, T-Shirts by Tommy can account for the accident is to record an extraordinary item. Using the definition from our Intermediate Accounting textbook, extraordinary events are defined as, "…events and transactions that are distinguished by their unusual nature and by the infrequency of their occurrence" (Keiso). Because of the nature of the plane crash, and the fact that these types of accidents happen very rarely, it can definitely be categorized as extraordinary. Tommy needs to estimate how much to expense for the loss of the building and other losses associated with the crash. Then he must record this item on his yearly income statement. If Tommy's business was not going to be operating soon at another location the smart thing to do would be to end the lease so that they would no longer have to pay for the equipment. Tommy, however, has a location where he can be operating shortly so he should consider not recording lease expense on the equipment during its downtime, and distributing it to the rest of the year evenly. It would not make sense to maintain the same lease expense during which time the equipment is not generating revenue; doing so would violate the matching principle. The best way to do this is to allocate the depreciation for the equipment to later periods when the equipment will be up and running. For instance, if we had a $1000 expense each month for equipment depreciation, for the 3 months and 2 weeks......

...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......

...wrong class, and “your” mother will not understand this writing gig. Her style seems to draw the reader in hanging on for the next thing that will happen in “your” life. She effectively makes the audience feel like they are at college, in the wrong class or that they are simply standing in their kitchen showing their mom the haiku they wrote at the ripe age of fifteen and she stares at them “Blank as a donut” (Moore p.652) and she says “How about emptying the dishwasher”(Moore p.652). The common theme of this story is that “you” are always struggling with a plot, and no one quite understands “your” writings. This struggle is a relevant struggle for Moore, as well as many young college students. Through out the short story she explains this common trend of “no plot” and even still you read on and can not help thinking is there a point to this story? The no plot theme seems to take a deeper role. As most will struggle with the choices of life and a fair amount of people will even feel as if they have remained stagnant and really not done too much. Moore really drives this point home. She makes the reader really relate. College students can especially relate. With all the dysfunction a college student endures with choosing what to do and then like Moore having second thoughts and changing their major. This story was witty and sarcastic. Leaving you with a perm-a-grin, because you can totally relate. The style of writing was something unusual for me to be reading but I......

On Writing

...Ashley Eller December 12, 2011 UCWR110-022 Final Reflective Essay On Writing My favorite author and literary genius, Stephen King, in his memoir On Writing wrote, “Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open.” This is possibly the best piece of advice I could ever think to give to a struggling student with a paper to write. Your first draft is always for yourself and your own personal reflection. In your second draft, “open up the doors” and write for everyone else who will be reading it. Without this solid piece of advice, I don’t think I could have ever expanded on my writing at all. Over the years, my writing career has hit its peak in junior year, and I have plateaued from there. Since being a UCWR student, I have had the chance to expand my range in my writing skills. From this course, I have learned to expand my writing ability to subjects I would never have broached before, allowing myself to heighten my awareness of the world around me as well as hinder my procrastination. In the beginning of the year, I was very disappointed I would have to take this course. From my previous experience with accelerated English and rhetoric courses, I felt I would be bored and disappointed with the classroom experience. Over the course of the semester, I have learned I was wrong. While in the beginning my engagement level was poor, I was still interested by the current events brought up in class. Some of the biggest topics we discussed (Occupy Wallstreet, Penn State...

...drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.” I agree with Mr. Hemingway. Writing can be easy and enjoyable, or it can be difficult and frustrating. There are times when everything comes together and flows effortlessly and, more often than I would like to admit, there are times when I could pull my hair trying to squeeze out an idea of what to write. Regardless of the headache writing can sometimes be, I am absolutely in love with it. I was not always in love with writing. I was capable of getting assignments like essays, short stories, and poems completed, but not necessarily enjoying the process it took to get there. Everything changed when I took a writing workshop as an elective class in high school. In all honesty, I took the class because I felt as though I was a good enough writer to do well and not have much to worry about. I realized something important in that class, that “good enough” would not be good enough for me anymore. I can remember the exact moment I fell in love with the process of writing. I had an assignment to write a short story, which seemed easy enough. I wrote a quick rough draft about the importance of not drinking and driving. My writing process had always been to write a rough draft that was not very well thought out, to edit a small amount and not much else. I found myself spending more time on that story than I had ever spent on any other piece of writing. I kept editing and changing things until the end result only held a small......

To do a consistently good job, however, one must grasp a few essential principles: 1 Consider the reader. 2 Be concise, clear, and down to earth. 3 Revise Consider the reader Keep your mind between reader and the subject.

If the proposed title, for example, means something to you; think further. Similarity, all the way through you must write for readers.

Managerial Accounting Writing Assignment

...Managerial Accounting Writing Assignment Outsourcing Business Operations Outsourcing Business Operations Outsourcing has become a common business practice being utilized by companies all over the world. Outsourcing is when a company decides to contract a different company to make a product or perform a service. Like anything else, outsourcing has its own positive aspects and negative aspects. Because so many businesses have started outsourcing jobs, contract manufacturing, which are manufacturers that specifically build products for other companies, has become an entire industry. Top management needs to weigh the benefits versus the disadvantages when deciding whether to keep the operation in house or have another company handle it. There are many things that need to be taken into account when trying to figure out whether or not to outsource a portion of a business’s operations. Some of the advantages of outsourcing are being able to cut costs and get your product or service done for cheaper, having a company with expertise in the specific area produce your product, and it allows a company to focus on other aspects of their operation. But where there are advantages, there are also disadvantages, such as the loss of quality control, divulging confidential and sensitive information, managerial control over the process, and a drop in employee morale because of any layoffs a company may have to make.

Ito ay sa ganap na 8:00 hanggang 10:00 ng umaga sa bayan ng talisay, at pagdating ng 10:00 ng umaga hanggang 12:00 ng tanghali ay sa Dapitan naman siya pupunta para sa konsultasyon. Bilang guro, ayon kay Dr. Maria Valdez sa librong “Jose Rizal and The Writings of His Story”, ang pagtuturo ni Rizal ay mula 1:30 hanggang 4:00 ng hapon. Ngunit ayon kina Vaño ang pagtuturo ni Rizal ay 2:00 hanggang 4:00 ng hapon. Sinabi rin niya sa sulat niya para kay Blumentritt na meron siyang 16 na estudyante. Bilang inventor, ang ating pambansang bayani ay nakalikha ng makina na makakagawa ng laryo (brick) nang mabilisan. Sa katunayan ay nakakagawa ito ng mahigit kumulang 6,000 na laryo sa isang araw. Si Rizal ay nagpadala rin ng sulat kay Blumentritt na kanyang ipinapaalam na nakakita siya ng ibang paraan ng paggawa ng laryo sa Bohemia at kanyang itinanong kung paano ito nagawa sa kaibigan niyang si Blumentritt. Siya rin ang naka inbento ng sulpukan na isang sigarilyong gawa sa kahoy. Bilang mangagamot, may pasyente si Rizal na nag ngangalang “Don Ignacio Tumarong” na nagbayad ng 3,000 Pesos upang mapaayos ang kanyang paningin. Isa pang Ingles ang nagpagamot ng mata kay Rizal na nagbayad ng 500 Pesos. At si Don Florencio Azcarraga mula sa Aklan ay nagpatingin rink ay Rizal. Ang kapalit nito ay isang kargada ng asukal. Bilang negosyante, alam naman natin na si Rizal ay......

For Writing

... Keep your eye on your governing question. You might want to put that question somewhere where you will see it every time you sit down to work -- e.g., on a piece of paper you attach to your computer, your bulletin board, or the wall. This will serve as your lighthouse, your beacon on the horizon that helps you stay on course. You need not be bound to the original form of this question; you may need to revise it or supersede it several times as you move along. Keep a record of how your governing question evolves. *Although it is important to "begin" your focused exploration with a governing question and to make that question clear early on in your thesis, you need not -in fact, probably can not -- begin the entire research and writing process with a question. It takes a lot of work -- reading, talking with people, thinking -- to generate and focus your governing question. 2. Show your readers what leads you to pose your question in the first place. Your governing question derives from competing observations, i.e., observations that appear to you to be in tension with one another and to indicate an apparent puzzle, problem, discrepancy, oversight, mystery, contradiction, or surprise. In the introduction to your piece, let your readers know how what you observe leads you to ask the question you ask. 3. Identify your subordinate questions. Just as the thesis as a whole is a response to a governing question, each chapter, each section, and each paragraph......

Ethics Writing Assignment Management Accounting Acct 221-01

...pass the final test if I wanted to pass Math class because my in-class grades were not good, and the proportion of the final test took 30% of the total. The conflicts between my mind and heart made me confused because the trade-off costs at that time were the same. In the end, instead of spending time to make that silly decision, I decided not to cheat on the final test and tried my best to finish the exam. Consequently, I got a B plus in total grade and also I realized that if I did cheat on the final test, I would be caught by supervisors. Each job will have their codes of ethics in which professional workers need to qualify in order to maintain the integrity of a profession. Somehow, I believe that the codes of ethics of doctors and accounting are the most relevant principle in which they will have the similarities and differences in two principles. Firstly, both codes of ethics have the restrictions and teach people how to do the right things. For example, accountants need to be loyal to the company while doctors should do the same with their patients. Also, doctors and accountants should always respect the laws and have the responsibilities of their jobs and the rights of customers. To maintain the efficiency, doctors or accountants sometimes set aside their personal interests such as bribes and care about benefits of customers and duties of their jobs. I believe that the difference in codes of ethics between the two jobs is the levels of the consequences of not......

...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. ......

...Understanding Graduate-Level Writing September 14, 2015 Understanding Graduate-Level Writing To understand graduate-level writing, you must look at the characteristics that make this type of writing different from other types of writing. One of these characteristics is to communicate a specific idea or intended message that is precise and elegantly worded, so the reader will not misunderstand (Beins & Beins, 2012, p. 3). Being misunderstood in any type of writing can be one of the biggest factors in how credible you are and if the message you are conveying will have the impact that is intended to make. As a graduate level writer, your technical vocabulary and phrases will play a vital role for difficult or intricate ideas, which should be conveyed in a short and concise manner (Beins & Beins, 2012, para. 9). That being said graduate-level writing generally follows a specific format that can be understood universally (Beins & Beins, 2012, p. 3). This specific and technical format displays one of the differences between the other forms of writing. Other styles of writing that are less formal usually accommodate the content as well as the artistic style of the text (Beins & Beins, 2012, p. 3). Taking the artistic less formal route for writing will allow the reader to understand the message in a less confusing method for virtually any level of understanding. The technical jargon that graduate-level writings entail seem to be one of the important distinctions...

...1.0: Introduction Writing is one of the most crucial aspects in language learning. It is not an easy task as it seems as writing is actually a process; and it is the teachers’ responsibilities to help students becoming good writers. According to Hedge (2005), writing process consists of four stages that are ‘Composing’, ‘Communicating’, ‘Crafting’ and ‘Improving’ (pp. 17). Therefore, this essay presents the main principles that underlie in activities that assist learners at these different stages in the writing process which is designed by Tricia Hedge in her book, ‘Writing’ (2005). This paper will start with a discussion about the first stage of writing that is ‘Composing’, and continue with another stage which is ‘Communicating’. ‘Crafting’ will be explained next, and finally, the last stage which is ‘Improving’ will be addressed. Additionally, an example of activity will be illustrated in each section. 2.0: Composing Composing is a stage that ‘takes a writer from pre-writing to polishing a final draft for a specific purpose and a particular audience’ (pp. 81). Hedge believes that good writing is often recursive, and not linear where various operations take place simultaneously throughout writing process. There are three main activities in this stage; pre-writing, drafting and redrafting, and editing. In pre-writing, the focus will be mainly on planning the outlines and exploring possible content. The learners will be aided to identify the purpose and the......
