4. A farmer in Georgia has a 100-acre farm on which to plant watermelons and cantaloupes. Every acre planted with watermelons requires 50 gallons of water per day and must be prepared for planting with 20 pounds of fertilizer. Every acre planted with cantaloupes requires 75 gallons of water per day and must be prepared with for planting with 15 pounds of fertilizer. The farmer estimates that it will take 2 hours of labor to harvest each acre planted with watermelons and 2.5 hours of labor for each acre planted with cantaloupes. He believes that watermelons will selce for about \$3 each, and cantaloupes will sell for about \$1 each. Every acre planted with watermelons is expected to yield 90 salable units. Every acre planted with cantaloupes is expected to yield 300 salable units. The farmer can pump 6,000 gallons of water per day for irrigation purposes from a shallow well. He can buy as much fertilizer as he needs at a cost of \$10 per 50-pound bag. Finally, the farmer can hire laborers to the harvest the fields at a rate of \$5 per hour. If the farmer sells all the watermelons and cantaloupes he produces, how many acres of each crop should the farmer plant to maximize profits? a. Reformulate an LP model for this problem. b. Sketch the feasible region for this problem. c. Determine the optimal solution to the problem by enumerating the corner points.

Consciously and sub-consciously we have “boxed” leadership in the same way. Looking back we interpret events and interactions, sort out the relevant and important, and apply meaning to the events. This assignment we will use Steve Jobs as our point of focus and our source for leadership events– our retrospective examination of his life as a leader. Assess Jobs as a leader from each perspective: 1. Traits (why traits failed) 2. Style (why style was underutilized) 3. Skills (skills that should have been used) Explain how Jobs’ leadership is explained through the lens of each: 1. Path-Goal 2. LMX 3. Transactional 4. Transformational 5. Charismatic 6. Authentic Non-traditional: 1. Follower (was Jobs a follower, how were followers a part of Jobs’ leadership?) 2. Conclusion (final heading – best represents Jobs and why others were ruled out) • APA format (margins, font, spacing) • APA in-text citations when needed • APA reference page • Proofread for grammar and content • Ensure that all headings and questions are addressed See agenda for headings Remember, this is a detailed analysis. Each of the above (a-j) should be a heading and explain how Jobs, as a leader, represents (or does not represent) the corresponding school of thought. Provide supplemental sources to give your position more credibility, but keep in mind that this is not a biography of Jobs (there are many recent biographies that do not qualify as acceptable sources for this assignment). Finally, which leadership perspective best identifies Steve Jobs as a leader? Explain why, and explain why other options were ruled out (k).

Sex, Gender, and Popular Culture Spring 2015 Look through popular magazines, and see if you can find advertisements that objectify women in order to sell a product. Alternately, you may use an advertisement on television (but make sure to provide a link to the ad so I can see it!). Study these images then write a paper about objectification that deals with all or some of the following: • What effect(s), if any, do you think the objectification of women’s bodies has on our culture? • Jean Kilbourne states “turning a human being into a thing is almost always the first step toward justifying violence against that person.” What do you think she means by this? Do you agree with her reasoning? Why or why not? • Some people would argue that depicting a woman’s body as an object is a form of art. What is your opinion of this point of view? Explain your reasoning. • Why do you think that women are objectified more often than men are? • How does sexualization and objectification play out differently across racial lines? • Kilbourne explains that the consequences of being objectified are different – and more serious – for women than for men. Do you agree? How is the world different for women than it is for men? How do objectified images of women interact with those in our culture differently from the way images of men do? Why is it important to look at images in the context of the culture? • What is the difference between sexual objectification and sexual subjectification? (Ros Gill ) • How do ads construct violent white masculinity and how does that vision of masculinity hurt both men and women? Throughout your written analysis, be sure to make clear and specific reference to the images you selected, and please submit these images with your paper. Make sure you engage with and reference to at least 4 of the following authors: Kilbourne, Bordo, Hunter & Soto, Rose, Durham, Gill, Katz, Schuchardt, Ono and Buescher. Guidelines:  Keep your content focused on structural, systemic, institutional factors rather than the individual: BE ANALYTICAL NOT ANECDOTAL.  Avoid using the first person or including personal stories/reactions. You must make sure to actively engage with your readings: these essays need to be informed and framed by the theoretical material you have been reading this semester.  Keep within the 4-6 page limit; use 12-point font, double spacing and 1-inch margins.  Use formal writing conventions (introduction/thesis statement, body, conclusion) and correct grammar. Resources may be cited within the text of your paper, i.e. (Walters, 2013).

c. A wall with an area 0f 35 m2 is made up of six layers. On the inside is plaster 20 mm thick, then there is the brick 100 mm thick, followed by the insulation of 60 mm thick, then the brick of 100 mm thick, then there is the insulation of 65 mm thick and finally brick 100 mm thick. Calculate the thermal resistance, the heat transfer between the layers and the overall heat transfer coefficient given that the thermal conductivity of plaster is 20 W/ m K, the thermal conductivity of the brick is 0.6 W/m K and the thermal conductivity of the insulation is 0.08 W/ m K. The inner surface temperature of the wall is 22oC and the outer is -4oC.
