Books only will be viewed by me!

140 pts. Total: 15 pts. First paper/telling me who you will interview; 25 pts.: transcript; 100 pts. Book
Must have permission forms before grade is released on these! No permission forms, no grade given till received.

Objective: The purpose of this assignment is for you to learn more about relationships and the communication within them that contributes to their success. You will do this by interviewing the people, creating a transcript first, then creating a book from the interview information.

Materials: • You will need to put your interview findings, pictures, pictures of artifacts, etc, into an electronic book • Can be Word or Power Pt. format • Will need a minimum of 5 pictures of those you interview representing various times in their relationships (early part, mid-part, children, things they like to do/pictures of them doing those things, houses they lived in, cars they have/had, places they have been/them at those places, etc) • We have a scanner in the library you can use for free to scan pictures, etc, to use in the book. • A tape recorder might be useful to interview someone, or be sure to take detailed notes if a recorder isn’t used (could videotaped, to—just be sure both parties are fine with this). • Can check out digital tape recorders at our library—can have for 24 hours for free, $1 for each day after that

Guidelines: 1) Think about a couple (could be a friendship or intimate relationship) you know who has been together for several years (more than 2) and would be willing to be interviewed (both people must participate vs. just one) and have information shared in class. I’d like the relationship to be someone’s other than your own. 2) There are some other options to this. However, please note some of these often are harder for students to do because the material is more difficult to apply to some of these relationship: a. can be someone widowed (thus, only 1 person interview); b. can be siblings (but must be 8 or older); c. could be a parent/sibling relationship (again, must be over 18) d. and, you cannot be interviewed, unless exceptional circumstance that’s discussed with me first. e. You will have to adapt the questions below to that kind of relationship—will take some creativity on your part to adapt accordingly 3) If you absolutely have no one to interview, contact me immediately to come up with options

4) Once you decide on who you want to interview, ask them if you have their permission to interview them, decide on when you will interview them (might be in one or a few sessions), and have them sign the permission forms (see last page of guidelines). Also, ask them if you can use their real names (first only) or if they want you to create pseudonyms. a. You will tell me who you will interview, their full names, how long they’ve been together (must be at least 2 years), what type of relationship they have, if they both can be interviewed and are willing to be interviewed (show them the questions) if you can get 5 pictures of them; if both are above 18 b. Type up that information and send to D2L dropbox c. See top of paper for due date. d. PLEASE: Do not interview anyone who is resistant to this, unwilling to talk; having severe relationship issues at the time of the interview 5) Then, ask them questions about their relationship: be sure to either record the interview and/or take notes so you can use this information in your book. a. You will turn in your transcript notes. b. Be sure they are typed. c. See Schedule for due date. d. See Content for example of “A” quality transcripts; you want to be sure each question below in number 7 is asked or modify as needed; you want details vs. vague responses

6) Please let them know you’d like to collect artifacts that represent, show their relationship (copies only or pictures of): i.e. pictures of them when they first met, got married, them together; letters they wrote to one another, pictures of something they gave to the other, etc. These items will be electronically displayed in your book. 7) Please tell them they only need to disclose what they feel comfortable sharing, but if they don’t share much with you, you might need to reconsider interviewing someone new.

8) Main Required Questions to ask—be sure you get each person’s response; also, it’s helpful to forward these questions to the couple ahead of time so they can look over/prepare; print off for the interview, too, and have your book with you at interview and something to take notes/record

Note: If interviewing parent/child or siblings, the First Meeting and Stages parts will need to be modified to fit those kinds of relationships; Ch. 10 gives more information about those types of relationships

** For all sections, the more detail the better/ask “who, what, when where, why questions” a. First Meeting: i. When, where did you two meet? Explain that first meeting. ii. What were your perceptions of one another (link to information from Chapter 3)? iii. What made you two attracted or interested in one another (refer to information about relationship stages, Ch. 9)? Can discuss nonverbal elements here, too (Ch. 6) b. Relationship Development/Stages: i. How long was your ‘involvement’ stage (page 208, from DeVito’s 6 Stages of Relationship Ch. 9)? ii. How long did it take you two to feel connected, establish a relationship, and/or develop intimacy? iii. If married, when did you get married; if gets, when did you have kids—ages, names iv. What helped you two connect, establish the relationship, and/or develop the intimacy? v. What keeps you both connected through the years today? vi. Go over some of the Relationship Theories (240-246) with them and see which of those (or, perhaps a few of them are) are most applicable to their relationship and why. c. Relationship Crisis/Struggles: let those interviewed know this may be the toughest section to talk about i. What are some of the main kinds of struggles, conflicts, disagreements you two have faced together? Intercultural differences? Finances? Children? Family? Health issues? ii. Typically, how do you two typically work through conflicts--What is each of your conflict styles (avoidance, aggressive, etc) (255-256, Ch. 11)? Are these styles effective? Why/why not? iii. Could you tell me about an example/examples of your biggest conflict/struggle, impact on the relationship, and how you two worked through that experience? iv. Did that experience move your relationship into Deterioration (212) or REPAIR (213)? How so? d. Communication strengths: i. Of the various interpersonal skills (certain listening skills-Chapter 4; direct messages/assertiveness: Ch. 5; nonverbal decoding: Ch. 6; emotional expression/responding: Ch. 7; conversational principles: Ch. 8, and so forth) we’ve discussed in our course, which of those does each person feel she/he has that contributes to the success of the relationship? ii. Discuss 2 (one for each person), specifically; give examples to show you these strengths play out in the relationship e. Anything else you want to share with me that you already haven’t that you think is important to understanding your relationship?

9) Once you have interviewed the two people, be sure you check over your notes, verify that they’re correct, ask follow up questions, etc. Thank them for their time. They may want to see your book when finished, so keep that in mind.

10) TRANSRIPT: TYPICALLY, A STRONG TRANSCRIPT IS NO LESS THAN 4 SINGLE SPACED PAGES (ONLY DOULBE SPACE BETWEEN QUESTIONS); NEED TO HAVE ALL QUESTIONS ASKED, DEVELOPED EXAMPLES GIVEN FOR RESPONSES; ASK THE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY QUESTIONS

Grading Rubrics for Transcript:

• 22.5-25 PTS.: ALL QUESTIONS ANSWERS, DEVELOPED, SPECIFIC EXAMPLES, COLLEGE-LEVEL WRITING DISPLAYED; ON TIME; 4 PAGES OR MORE TYPICALLY • 20-22 PTS: ONE ABOVE AREA NEEDING SOME WORK; LITTLE LESS THAN 4 PAGES TYPICALLY (3 ¼, 3 ½) • 17.5-19.5 PTS.: TWO ABOVE AREAS NEEDING SOME WORK; AROUND 3 PAGES • 15-17 PTS: THREE ABOVE AREAS NEEDING SOME WORK; AROUND 2 ½ PAGES • If 1-2 pages only, and/or excessive grammatical/mechanical errors, might receive just half credit or no credit and asked to develop work in book • Can be late by 3 days for up to a B grade

11) Next step is to put a book together based on responses to the questions you asked. The point is not to put together every single thing they said but only things that are telling of interpersonal relationships/communication, and are interesting to share with others (as they might give us some insight into intimate relationships, friendships). 12) Your book should include (will be typed pages and put into an album of sorts—I’ll show examples): a. Title page b. Table of contents c. These sections (from above questions in number 7; and, one final section/see below; make sure sections are marked clearly with title pages or title headings) i. First Meeting and Relationship Development/Stages (at least l ½ page double-spaced text); include any pictures, letters, artifacts related to this

ii. Relationship Crisis/Struggles (at least 1 page, double-spaced text); include any artifacts Related to this iii. Communication Strengths (at least 1 page, double-spaced text); include any artifacts iv. Final section about “your final reflection/analysis (at least one page double-spaced text)—discuss in this section two things you learned from this interview about interpersonal communication/relationships; be sure you use concepts/theories from the textbook to illustrate points, and cite from text when using course concepts d. Please either scan or send me a copy of your signed permission forms when you turn in your book (only I will see these forms). Need when book is due. e. When you cite from the book, use “” for direct quotes and cite the page numbers from the book like this (DeVito 52). f. MUSIC OPTION: Some students who use Power Pt. incorporate music into their books—music that might be the couple’s first song they danced to, or a song at their wedding, or a song playing when they first met

...The Dispute of Century Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. was the first of many lawsuits between Apple and Samsung. Apple Inc. filed its patent infringement lawsuit in April 2011 and engaged legions of the country's highest-paid patent lawyers to demand $2.5 billion from its top smartphone competitor. Samsung Electronics Co. fired back with its own lawsuit seeking $399 million. By August 2011, Apple and Samsung were carrying out their legal battles in 19 ongoing lawsuits in 12 courts in nine countries on four continents; by October, the fight expanded to 10 countries, and by July 2012, the two companies were embroiled in more than 50 lawsuits around the globe with billions of dollars in damages claimed between them. The ultimate cost of these patent wars to consumers, shareholders, and investors is yet unknown, but it is increasing both business costs and product pricing. Some of the things that Apple claimed had been copied by Samsung are: the Galaxy line infringes the “Trade Dress” (which refers to design aspects that are non-essential to the function of a device) of the iPhone and iPad by using a rectangular design with rounded edges also the black borders around the Galaxy Tablet are very similar to those exhibited by the IPad; the use of small square app icons and the software used by Samsung were one of Apple's claims. I think Apple has a point with respect to software used by Samsung, but despite that does not seem to be anything more. The shape of the......

...Star Wars Blue Ray Toshi and Allen Watch Star Wars for the first time..   Chapter 1: We kick off a special series with a first viewing of 'Star Wars' on Blu-ray What happens when 21st century kids finally watch the biggest myth of the '70s? Thursday, Sep 22, 2011   This day has been a long time coming.   We all have landmarks by which we measure our lives and our accomplishments, goals you've set for yourself that you've either accomplished or not, and I'm certainly someone who holds film experiences very dear.  The moment I knew I'd spend the rest of my life somehow involved in movies took place in a dark movie theater when I was seven years old, and it was one of those lightning bolt occasions.  I felt pinned to the back of my chair as I watched a tiny blockade runner fleeing from a seemingly endless Star Destroyer that just kept coming out and over, more real than anything I had ever seen, and I've never wavered in my determination to be involved in storytelling somewhere, somehow.   Because of the relevance of "Star Wars" in my development as a fan of storytelling in general, reaching the moment of sharing these films with my kids has been one of my primary goals since I've been writing about the entire experience of sharing narrative with my children.  I know people who start screening the films for their kids as soon as they are old enough to open their eyes, and I respect that.  Of course I know other people who don't think it's of any particular importance,...

...Ændring siden revolutionen I 1959 overtog Fidel Castro og hans oprørsstyrke regeringen. Da Fidel Castro fik magten hjalp Cuba på den måde at han lavede det om til et socialistisk land som gjorde at menneskerne fik uddannelse, Jobs og et gratis sundheds system. Dette var bl.a. Muligt pga masseturismen men især alt den hjælp og støtte fra sovjet unionen da 80% sukker exmporteret til SU mange problemer usa. Da sovjet Union faldt mistede Cuba meget af sin økonomiske støtte som så gjorde at de mistede ikke kun deres politiske status og ikke havde nok penge til at blive ved med at køre med det system de var igang med. Det Cubankse folk synes at Che Guevara var en verdenshelt, selv filosoffen Jean Paul sagde at Che var det mest fuldkommende menneske i vores tid. Efter den Cubanske revolution prøvede che også at skabe revolution i Congo, og i Bolivia men det lykkeds ikke for ham, og det endte med at 1967 blev han fanget og dræbt af det boliviaske militær. Citater "Permítanme decir a riesgo de parecer ridículo que el revolucionario verdadero está guiado por grandes sentimientos de amor." "Lad mig sige, med fare for at virke latterligt, at den sande revolutionære ledes af store følelser af kærlighed."

It is impossible to spend sufficient time on the works we will be exploring within the bounds of class-time, so you will be required to spend time reading and writing on your own; this is a practice that will enable you to bring your personal experiences with these works to our discussions in class and participate in an engaged way as part of our community of learning. But our community of learning is broader than the classroom—it also includes the community organizations you will be partnering with for your service-learning. We will be investigating and interrogating a versatile metaphor—cultivation—and how it impacts the cultures and communities in which we......

...BLUE SKY MAN Industry Segmentation In the airline industry, market segmentation can be based on providing flights to domestic or international destinations and product segmentation would include the different types of fares they are offered, such as economy, business and also first class. dustry will be low as there are high barriers to entry. Due to high cost of planes, entering airline industry requires high capital investment to commence operations. The airline industry is extremely capital intensive, due to the cost of buying and leasing aircrafts, safety and security measures, customer service and creating a brand people can trust. In order to achieve economic of scales, many airlines creates alliance with each other therefore creating efficiency in joint purchase of aircraft, cost of maintenance and parts thus save hundreds of millions of dollars such as the Jetstar/AirAsia alliance. This creates further barriers whereby new entrants will not be able to compete in term of cost and price. (1) Power of suppliers to the industry - Medium to High The airline supply business is mainly dominated by Boeing and Airbus therefore they have high supplier power. For this reason, there is not a lot of competition among suppliers. Also, it is also unlikely that of a supplier integrating vertically. Airlines are also unable to materially affect fuel prices from suppliers as the oil market dictates the fuel costs. They also aim to use their combined scale to......
