This assignment will give you the opportunity to go beyond the bounds of what is covered in this course. I want you to analyze and critique a current article (no more than 6 months old) from a newspaper or a business magazine. The article should be related to any of the topics covered in Organizational Behaviour. Once you have selected the article, your task is to research whether the article’s information is accurate and based on theory and/or empirical research. The purpose of this assignment is to develop your critical analysis skills. You will learn to evaluate the extent to which the information and/or recommendation presented in a news story is valid. Note, the purpose is not to discover whether the information is true or false, but whether it is supported by valid research and theory. Think of the assignment as practice for the potential occasion when your future boss asks you whether an idea presented in an article is valid and therefore could be applied in a company or, whether it lacks support, and therefore should not yet be trusted.

Below you will find information on what type of article you should analyze, what type of articles can be used to validate the information in the article, and the format requirements for the assignment.

Sources for the Assignment

Selecting a News Story
You may choose a current article (published within the last 6 months) of any length from a non-academic source as long as the topic discussed in the article is focused on managing people in the workplace. Thus, the article must relate to the topics covered in MGT B23. A non-academic source constitutes articles that are not published in peer reviewed journals. I recommend that you find the article in either a newspaper (e.g., The Globe and Mail, The New York Times), or a magazine (e.g., Macleans, Forbes, Time, Fast Company).

Validating a News Story
In order to determine whether the recommendation published in the news story is valid, you must compare...

Short answers
5. What two things must you normally specify in a variable declaration?
You must specify the variable type and an identifier.
int n; // type - int, identifier - n
6. What value is stored in uninitialized variables?
is a variable that is declared but is not set to a definite known value before it is used.

3. Write assignment statements that perform the following operations with the variables a, b, and c.
a. Adds 2 to a and stores the result in b
b. Multiplies b times 4 and stores the result in a
c. Divides a by 3.14 and stores the result in b
d. Subtracts 8 from b and stores the result in a
Assignment statements that perform operations with the variables a, b, and c* (*Actually none of these operations involves the variable c at all... is this an error, or a 'trick answer'?):
b = a + 2
a = b * 4
b = a / 3.14
a = b – 8
4. Assume the variables result, w, x, y, and z are all integers, and that w = 5, x = 4, y = 8, and z = 2. What value will be stored in result in each of the following statements?
a. Set result = x + y
b. Set result = z * 2
c. Set result = y / x
d. Set result = y – z
result = x++ - y;
Answer -4
result = 4 – 8 = -4
result = ++w + y;
Answer
w = w + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
result = 6 + 8 = 14
5. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable cost so it can hold real numbers.

WORK INTEGRATED LEARNING
INDIVIDUAL REFLECTION
An individual often learn best through personal experiences as it enables the mind to remember information for the long term. This assignment provides the reflection of my learning experience working as a team member.
1. Positive Aspects of Working within a Team
The greatest advantage working within a team is the distribution of workload. This reduces the workload for each member and also allows each member to specialise in certain areas of the report. However, where conducting research is concerned, each member was tasked to research on all aspects. It might seem as a tedious method but it allows each member to have a general understanding of the report. Using their own methodology for research, like accessing a database that each member is more familiar with, more in-depth researches are covered to produce a more convincing report.
2. Negative Aspects of Working with My Team
Not knowing each other prior to the group assignment, it is similar to entering a new working environment, having to work with people whose working style we are not used to. Therefore, my group is reserved in voicing our opinions during the generation of the report. Each member has their own approach in writing a report, which might be unacceptable to others. This resulted in the rejection of one member’s write-up without any explanation by...

For our Week 2 assignment, in Intermediate Algebra, we were asked to solve the problem number 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. aside from completing the problem, we were also asked to write a two to three page paper while including the five given vocabulary words for the week. Please see the problem below:
Shipping restrictions. The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler.
a)
Write an inequality to describe this region.
b)
Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs?
c)
Will the truck hold 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs?
Kindly consider the five given vocabulary words:
Solid line
Dashed line
Parallel
Linear inequality
Test point
In order to solve the problem, we need to be aware that the formula to solve any linear equation is y=mx+b. with the said, we can say that we have our y- intercept which is 330. (The ordered pair 0,330 demonstrates that the y coordinate is 330). Since we have our y- intercept, we will now discover what our slope is. The formula to determine any slope of a line is
m=y1- y2
x1-x2
M= 330-0
0-100
After performing division and simplifying, we have found that the slope of our line is -3.
a) Write an inequality to describe this region.
The inequality to...

Solving Proportions
Proportions exist in the real world. For example, in finding out the price of a unit, or the population of a specific species. The first problem that we are working with states that “. Bear population. To estimate the size of the bear population on the Keweenaw Peninsula, conservationists captured, tagged, and released 50 bears. One year later, a random sample of 100 bears included only 2 tagged bears.What is the conservationist’s estimate of the size of the
bear population?(Dugolpolski, 2012)
In reading over the “Bear Population” #56 on page 437 (Dugolpolski, 2012), the concept of proportions allow the assumption that the ratio of originally tagged bears to the whole population is equal to the ratio of recaptured tagged bears to the size of the sample. The estimated solution, variables will be defined and rules for solving proportions are used.
The ratio of originally tagged bears to the whole population is 50/x.
The ratio of recaptured tagged bears to the sample size is 2/100.
50=2 This is the proportion set up and ready to solve. This is the step where we will cross multiply.
x 100 at this point. The extremes are 100 and 50. The means are x and 2
100(50)=2x
50002=2x2 Divide both sides by 2
X=2500 The bear population of Keweenaw Peninsula is estimated to be around 2500.
For the second problem of this...
