Language & Other Cognitive Processes


A woman of some forty years enters my office. She moves very carefully and hesitantly, stopping at the door and waiting.

Performance Analysis & Recommendations


You are a new supervisor for one of your company’s departments. You have only been on the job for a couple of days when your manager pulls you aside to express her concern over the department’s performance. She shares the following information with you:

(YTD = Year-to-Date; QTD = Quarter-to-Date; MTD = Month-to-Date; LW = Last Week)
Sales data:
YTD Actual – $720,186, QTD Actual – $325,598, MTD Actual – $64,580, LW Actual – $31,169, YTD Plan – $766,341, QTD Plan – $350,152, MTD Plan – $70,725, LW Plan – $36,053

% of gross margin (GM) plan data: YTD – 98.25%, QTD – 98.47%, MTD – 98.56% LW – 99.11%

% of Employee Availability over Last Year to Date:YTD – 97.00%, QTD – 95.70%, MTD – 95.72%, LW – 94.35%

2. She asks you to investigate what’s been going on in the department to explain the performance data. She also wants you to chart the data and identify any trends you discover.

Mid Summers Night Dream


Read the Mid Summers Night Dream and write as essay of approximately 5 pages answering the following questions.

1. What determines whether A Midsummer Night’s Dream seems comic or tragic? Some scenes could be read as simultaneously serious or funny. Pyramus and Thisby is a tragedy that becomes comedic
when performed by the bumbling craftsmen. It could be said that the comedy in the rest of A Midsummer Night’s Dream has tragic underpinnings as well, since the “happy” elements of the
play—marriage, love, passion, youth, celebration—are underpinned with dark images. Analyze this intermixing of comedy and tragedy in the play. Which characters experience the play as tragedy, and which as comedy, and why?
