Should housework be an assumed responsibility of either spouse?

ASSIGNMENT NUMBER FIVE (CH.12-13)

1. Regardless of whether the family is a dual-income family or not marriage is about compromise. With compromise comes accommodation. One couple might have a partner who works longer hours or has a more strenuous job. To accommodate the partner, the other spouse might have to do more of the house work. One partner might have more responsibilities than another but in the end it should be equally shared.

2. Many years ago, when families would survive off of the land, both men and women were cooperative and worked along each others side. They both assumed laborious duties and shared tasks. Most would be divided by gender but the couple would actively participate both at home and work. Today, due to the dramatic increase in industrialization, a lot of the household tasks that mainly women did are no longer known as a “job”. With the female labor force increasing from 25% in 1940 to 61% in 2003, the term “housewife” and homemaker continue to be seldom used as a means of work. As female labor continues to rise each year, I believe that history will be repeating itself and therefore not only would sharing household responsibilities be the most viable option but a must. The text (Ch. 12 Pg.259) describes the “superwomen” as the dual-career wife who has unrealistic aspirations as she tries to manage being a wife, homemaker, and mother and balance her career on top of it all. She ends up feeling depressed and in the end is overwhelmed and reaches the point of exhaustion. Had she shared the responsibilities with her partner she might not have reach this point and this is why equity is important to marital satisfaction and the well being of the family.

3. Traditionally, in the past labor has always been divided by gender roles. The wives would cook, clean, wash dishes and the men would do most of the outside chores and repairs around the house. Today this...

...Stone Finch Inc.: Young Division, Old Division
Stone Finch was a company that was created after the merger of Stone Water Products Inc. with Goldfinch Technologies in 2000. Stone Water Products manufactured products for the water/wastewater industry. It had built its reputation on the quality of its products as well as the excellent services that the company’s sales force provided. Goldfinch Technologies on the other hand, was a five-year biochemical firm that provided solutions for the water/wastewater processing market. It was considered a company with high perspectives and could serve as a great opportunity for Stone Water Products to add additional streams of revenue. After the CEO of Stone Finch retired Jim Billings, who was the former leader of Goldfinch Technologies and was running the solutions department of the integrated company, became the new CEO.
Jim Billings as a leader
As a leader Jim Billings had a clear vision and the ability to inspire employees. He was energetic and he was comfortable with taking risks. He believed in the power of innovation and the constant pursuit of new opportunities. Billings had played a key role in the profitable growth and the diversification of the new company but as a new CEO he lacked the ability to “merger” the two departments and built a common culture. He had also a participative leadership style as he was taking his employees’ opinions into account but he could not built a common...

...The 82nd Division was activated at Camp Gordon, Georgia, on 25 August 1917. It was one of the National Army divisions of conscript soldiers. As the Division filled, it was discovered there were soldiers from every state. Through a popular contest, the nickname "All American" was chosen to reflect the unique composition of the 82nd Division.
On 25 April 1918, the Division sailed for Europe. The 325th Infantry Regiment was chosen to parade before the King of England on 11 May 1918 to show America's commitment to the Allies. Early in June 1918 the 82nd sent small groups of officers and noncommissioned officers to the British held Somme sector of the front to gain experience in small unit operations. During one such action, Captain Jewett Wiliams of the 326th Infantry Regiment became the first 82nd Division soldier to give his life in combat.
On 16 June 1918, the 82nd Division moved by train from its location in Somme to Toul, France. Since the Division had moved into a French sector, the troops were issued French Chauchat automatic rifles and Hotchkiss 8mm machineguns, thus making resupply easier.
The Division's assignment was to relieve the 26th Division in the Lagney Sector, northeast of Toul. That section of the western front was known as the Woevre Front. The mission was conducted on 25 June 1918. Although the area was considered a...

The solution for the above cryptarithm is
1
+ 99
= 100
There are three types of cryptarithms. They are:-
Alphametics
Digimetic
Skeletal Division
Alphametics
A type of cryptarithm in which a set of words is written down in the form of a long addition sum or some other mathematical problem. The object is to replace the letters of the alphabet with digits to make a valid arithmetic sum.
There is also a subset of alphametics called 'doubly-true' where the words are spelt out numbers which also form a valid sum:
Forty
+ Ten
+ Ten
= Sixty
The solution to the above doubly-true alphametic is
2 9 7 8 6
8 5 0
+ 8 5 0
3 1 4 8 6
Digimetics
A type of cryptarithm in which digits are used to represent other digits.
An example of a digimetic is :-
50
+ 20
+ 20 =
90
The solution to this digimetic is : -
60
+ 10
+ 10
= 80
Skeletal Division
A long division in which most or all of the digits are replaced by symbols (usually asterisks) to form a cryptarithm.
Physicist Richard Feynman sent the following puzzle for his father attached to a letter to his mother in 1939: -
This is an example of skeletal division.
The quotient is thus (....A..):(.A.) = (..A.)
The solution to this division is not as easy as it looks. However, the solution is: -

...Stone Finch, Inc.: Young Division, Old Division
In January 2008, Jim Billings, president and CEO of Stone Finch, Inc., sat back in his office chair, contemplating his next move. A crisis was brewing, as an email from Eli Saunders, senior vice president and head of the Water Products Division, confirmed. Water Products was the foundation of the company, and Saunders had been with the company more than 25 years. Billings read the email again: Jim, I must register my grave concerns with the way things are operating. In considering my perspective, bear in mind that I’ve supported you in the past. When the firm purchased your company, Goldfinch Technologies, in 2000 and integrated it as a second division, focused on consulting “solutions,” I told R. L. Stone that I thought the decision was appropriate and that you looked like a talented, even inspiring leader. Then in 2004 you embraced the incubator concept of “strategic subsidiaries.” I gave my support with a strong note of caution, fearing that the concept presented too many unanswered questions for our organization. My caution was well founded. Since 2004, you and I have had numerous discussions about the funding and basic tenets of the strategic subsidiaries. I agree with you that these subsidiaries do represent an engine of innovation, and they do create a buzz in the industry. But in the long term, using my manufacturing division as a cash cow to feed...

...Misconceptions
The Family of misconceptions that I will examine is the following; multiplication and division always produces larger and smaller values respectively. This is related to the order in which children are taught the concepts of multiplication, Division and extending the set of numbers from integers to non integers and fractions.
Misconception | Demonstration of why this is incorrect |
Multiplication always makes a number larger or it stays the same stays the samesolution larger than original number (5) | Multiplication can make numbers smaller multiplication by a decimal less than 1 multiplication by a fraction less then 1multiplication by a negative |
Division always makes numbers smaller or they stay the same.solution smaller than original number (12)stays the same | Division can make a number larger division by a decimal less than 1 division by a fraction less than 1division of a negative number by another negative number |
The primary reason that children have this misconception is when they first encounter the functions multiplication and division, they are only being exposed to positive integers, thus the examples that they will have been given and the examples they practiced will all have followed the pattern that multiplication makes numbers larger and division makes numbers smaller.
The misconception persists when they individual...

...Teamwork
Team means “Together Everyone Achieves More”. Teamwork is the ability to work together towards a common vision. Teamwork is all about caring for each other. Teamwork is everywhere. The individual efforts result in a level of performance that is greater than the sum of those individual efforts. Weaknesses of one member can be supported by stronger members who will make the results better and more effective than a person doing it individually. Without teamwork you would not be able to complete things that require the help of others such as building a house, running a factory, or even picking food products. With teamwork relationships and friendships are formed, work gets done, and teamwork teaches you responsibility. It requires you work together in form of trust. In teamwork you learn from other, if someone makes a mistake then there is an opportunity for others to learn from it and try not to do it again. To make the team succeed there should be a good leader to motivate the team. When talking about one man army it is clear that there is only one person with one talent whereas team has multi-talent because each has a different spatiality. The team is stronger, like it is said "Two heads are better than one". Individual effort takes a lot of time to accomplish a task but the team divides the task and accomplishes it in a shortest time. Disadvantages of teamwork also leads to interdependency as tasks are divided among the workers but if one worker is absent or...
