1.THINK: WHAT NEW LIT THEORY LENS DO YOU THINK SHOULD EXIST?
When preparing for this assignment, ask yourself the following
yourself the following to start planning your new theory:
Is there a theory we studied that you disagree with? What about it do you dislike or wish to change? Why?
Which theory would you want to expand further or alter to make it more inclusive of a certain group/culture/trend etc.?
What topics in the media angers/upsets/excites/confuses you the most?
While reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and/or an essay from The Anthropocene Reviewed, were you particularly drawn to certain events/characters/settings/symbols etc.?
What is your favourite genre of media? (i.e. novels, films, short stories/films, articles, TV shows, poetry, advertising, social media etc.)
CREATE: Now use your brainstorming and knowledge of literary theories to create a new school of literary criticism and apply it to either Henrietta Lacks OR The Anthropocene Reviewed, and one other text of your choice.
PRESENT: Design and create a multimedia presentation that incorporates words and images/graphics presenting your new theory.
What kind of multimedia presentation should I create? E.g. a slideshow of 10-15 slides, a video no longer than 2 minutes, an infographic, an annotated painting/graphic design, magazine article/issue
Your multimedia presentation must include the following:
a unique name for your new theory
a brief definition for your theory - types of questions to ask yourself when using your lens
a brief rationale statement for your theory (rationale is basically why you believe this theory needs to exist and how it was inspired)
an application of your theory to any piece of literature (novel, play, short story, fairy tale) or alternate media text (TV show, comic, advertisement, painting, film clip) **Note: You will have to summarize/introduce your choice of text (e.g. film clip, fairy tale, comic, painting etc.) before you apply your theory
an application of your theory to one passage approx. 250 words long from The Great Gatsby. (not the passage you chose from Lit Theory Assignment #1)
Complete the “Student Comments” part of the rubric (see below) evaluating your final piece
Check out some Level 4 examples to get an idea of what a new theory and its application could look like for student selected texts.
You will upload your final presentation to GC on the due date as shown on the class calendar. You will NOT have to present your final product to the class.
2.Unsure how to answer these 6 questions
Assess the current compensation strategy vs the eight goals of a successful compensation program
als of a successful compensation program
Determine (from contextual variables) the most appropriate managerial strategy that should be employed in the organization
Determine (from structural variables) the current managerial strategy currently operating in the organization, with a discussion on how the “gap” (if there is one) explains some part of the issues that the organization is having. The “gap” is the difference between the current versus appropriate managerial strategy.
Apply expectancy theory to identify any issues with pay for performance – are incentives working at cross purposes between key positions? Are some incentives paying out too well in certain positions, while others aren’t paying out at all?
Apply job content theory to the job family or group of jobs to help explain employee motivation issues including why the existing incentives either work or don’t work. Ideally, job content theory will be applied to those positions that will be included in the PKS grid.
Document and analyze the sources and types of reward dissatisfaction present
5.You are boiling water on the stove, in order to cook pasta. You need to heat 1.2 kg of water
e room temperature of 25°C to the boiling point of water, which is 100°C.
However, the stainless steel pot that the water is in will also heat up from 25°C to 100°C. This pot has a mass of 2 kg.
The specific heat of water is 4181 Joules/kg - °C and the specific heat of stainless steel is 502 Joules/kg - °C.
How much heat does the stove need to apply solely to the combination of the pot and the water in joules?
7.Let's Play Ice Hockey!
An ice hockey player uses hockey stick to apply force on a motionless puck as shown on
motionless puck as shown on the picture above. The net force that the stick applies on the puck is 150N and the contact lasts for 7.5 ms. The mass of the puck is 166 g.
A) (1 point) Calculate the acceleration of the puck under the influence of the net force.
B) (2 points) Calculate the puck's change in momentum due to the impulse applied by the hockey stick.
C) (1 point) What is the velocity of the puck once it leaves the stick?
Puck travels over rough ice and comes to a stop after 25 m. The force diagram below shows all forces acting on the puck during that travel.

D) (1 point) Calculate the work done on the puck by gravitational force.
E) (1 point) Calculate the work done on the puck by normal force.
F) (2 points) Calculate work done by friction force on the puck.
Now stationary, the puck (red) collides with a blue puck of the mass .332 kg moving to the left with velocity of 2.5 m/s. If collision is perfectly elastic calculate:
H) (2 points) Total momentum of blue+red puck system before collision?
I) (1 point) What is the total momentum of blue+red puck system after collision? How do you know?
J) (2 points) What is the velocity of the blue puck after collision?
