Building a Laptop Campus Suggestion
February 24, 2013

Mr. Steven Jones
School of Management Undergraduate Program Committee

University at Buffalo

Dear Mr. Jones:

The UB School of Management undergraduate program has been very successful, innovative and well loved by students. Among all the benefits, students find e-assignments and digital access courses to be extremely convenient, since these can be access through laptops and other electronic devices. While students are enjoying privilege of doing assignments online, they suffer from moving heavy and expensive paper textbooks around the campus.

Currently, many colleges benefit from the use of technology. For example, in Northern Michigan University, every student is granted a laptop to improve quality of study. The cost of the laptop is covered in their tuition. In this laptop campus, students can easily access eBooks, course materials, as well as homework assignments through the web, without carrying anything extra.

However, in our program, students spend significant amount of money on textbooks every year and receive very little pleasure using them. Some students end up with going through the semester without having a textbook because they cannot afford one or don’t have the time to sit down and read. This often causes negative impact on students’ grades.

The best solution of this problem is to build a laptop campus. Collect a one-time laptop fee and return the students with heavily discounted e-textbooks would be a huge saving over four years. With affordable and easy to access course material, students can study at home or at anywhere else, this also increases the flexibility of studying time.

This laptop campus transformation can be achieved with some effort because our undergraduate program is already heavily relying on technology.…...

The things that I learned in Unit 6, Academic Writing, will be great use for my next class which is Writing Composition. I will be taking what I have learned from this course and apply it to my next, and so on and so on. From Unit 7 came setting forth my short term and long term goal. I learned how to use the S.M.A.R.T. goal planning technique. I learned that using a series of short term goals helps me to achieve my long term goal. This works for me because if I can see progress and it is easier for me to stay on track and achieve the long term goal. So many times I have set myself a goal and never accomplished it because I could not see the progress and lost interest. There were a lot of other units that will come in use during the rest of my time here at College of Southern Nevada, everything from critical......

Letter Writing

...matter how big your reputation, the client controls the dollars and therefore controls you. You exist to serve the client. Therefore the client/service provider relationship is more boss/employee than peer/peer. Vendors who think otherwise are, for the most part, fooling themselves. Letters are typically spaced one, two, or four weeks apart. The intensity and aggressiveness of the collection letter increases as the series progresses. The last letter typically states that unless payment is made promptly, the invoice will be turned over to a collection agency or attorney. Another effective tactic is to suggest that the customer’s credit rating may be damaged by nonpayment of the bill. LETTER #1 This letter is to notify the customer that the status on their account is now in collections. You should outline the efforts you have taken thus far in securing payment from the customer. It should also clearly state the course of action you wish the customer to take. The tone of this letter should be less cordial than that used in billing letters as discussed above. Be polite to the customer, but be firm in your wording. Be sure to explain the consequences of not complying with the letter. Tips for Business Greetings • Send the greeting message within 48 hours after meeting the person. The longer you wait, the less of a positive impression it makes. • In the lead, remind the person where, how, when, and under what circumstances the two of you first met. • Be......

Guidlines for Writing Recommendation Letter

...Writing a student reference/letter of recommendation The Careers Service Centre is often asked for guidelines about what should be included in letters of reference. GENERAL GUIDELINES • • • • • • • • • (JB Aug 2012) Be specific and give examples to justify the points that you make. Request a CV or personal statement for additional information. This can inform your writing and enable you to be specific e.g. refer to anecdotes that back up points about a student's personality and ability. Raise the issue of references with students in class early in the academic year and clarify your / the Department's procedure for dealing with references. One page of a typewritten A4 page is generally sufficient - but do try to write more than one paragraph!. Students should inform you of the job(s) or course(s) they are applying for. The reader of the letter wishes to get to know the person better and you can tailor your give evidence of relevant skills, knowledge or experiences. If the letter is going to be negative, or overly bland, then tell the student who requests it in advance. The request may then be withdrawn. Some writers suggest that you avoid the gushing letter that only has positives to say and encourage you to write briefly about a weakness/area for development as it will give balance to the letter. Either way be comfortable with what you say. You can also follow the letter with a phone call. Do not substitute a telephone reference for a written one if that is what is......

The Importance of Writing Letters

...You almost have to be of a certain age these days to remember what it was like to sit down and write out a letter or to even have had to handwrite it. A handwritten or typed letter takes time, creativity and thought., which is why people prefer to text, email, or just jot down a short note, etc. There are times when all you want to say is "meet me at 8" and then a text or a short note is perfect. The problem comes only when you are required to put together a proposal letter for a business, a cover letter for an open job position or even when you want to journal some things so that you read it at a later date. It is with those opportunities that we find our skills have been reduced to LOL, k, brb, tc, cya. Letter writing is important as it reveals something about your personality that a machine can't. Your style of handwriting, choice of ink and paper all say something about you as an individual. Now almost everyone has become too busy so there is no time for anyone to put their words in thoughts. Writing love letters is no longer interesting to people. Lot of new technology has replaced the beauty of writing love letter. Sending email, messages, SMS has become the trend now. But when you express your love, the best way is to write a letter to your beloved one. And when you start writing your thoughts there are no limitations to convey what we think. The quantity and quality of contemporary written communication is fast flowing down the tubes of mindless entertainment......

...WRITTING ASSIGNMENT #1 When America became aware of President Obama’s plan to address the nation’s children, controversy over the event made headlines across the nation. According to USA Today the controversy was started by Florida Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer warning the nation that Obama was going to use his speech to the children to spread his “socialist ideology” and “liberal lies.” The issue was then exaggerated even more by conservative bloggers, radio commentators and Fox News to add to the “fear mongering” started by Greer as stated by USA Today. The controversy started by Jim Greer did not stop there. The Department of Education had suggested to the Obama administration to include a lesson plan along with the speech urging the students to write letters to themselves about, how they would help the president. This did not sit well with many parents and therefore the suggested lesson plan was taken out of the speech format. The change in the format along with the White House posting the transcript of the speech on its’ website helped alleviate the concerns of many, even Florida Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer. According to The News- Gazette.com “After they got a look at the text many critics, including Greer, backed off, and some schools agreed to show the speech after all.” Even though the release of the transcript proved that the speech did not have political undertones to the message there were still parents that did not want their kids to listen to......

...potential loss of families moving out of the area with the gentrification, these small business owners can win over the Wall Street people and they will use their businesses. ​When I meet with the politicians, I would like for them to see the potential negative effect this could have on the area. While these new buildings are great, we cannot move the entire working class people away from where they came. I’d like for the politicians, Wall Street and the union leaders to work cohesively. This area has many working families and we need to try to keep as many as possible or the government will be bought by big money and the working class will lose much of what they gained. ​I’d like for the union leaders to get their members to write letters to Wall Street and the politicians so that their voices can be heard. The more people write and possibly march for a cause;the politicians will hear what other people are saying. ​For my constituents, I want their voices to be heard and would like for them to call, write and march for what they believe in. This city was made by working class families and we need to try to preserve that as much as possible. ​In conclusion, I feel that if in 1958, when these buildings were being constructed if the politicians, Wall Street and the working class people worked more cohesively, these areas may still have working class people as opposed to transients, people that just come to the city for a few years and then move to the suburbs for their......

Assignment Letter to a European Philosopher

...Assignment: Letter to a European Philosopher PHI/105 Dear Soren Kierkegaard, I have read your profile and philosophical views on several subjects in the Moore-Bruder, (2008) AXIA Reading Material Handbook. I have two arguments that I would like to present to you on your philosophical views and choices you make to please a God that is not proven to exist. First I would like to talk about the agony of choices you made between your God and the woman you were going to marry named Regine Olsen. The choice of committing yourself to God affected you profoundly, by denying yourself the true love you longed for. You cannot touch, smell, or see this God you believe in. It sounds like to me you cheated yourself out of the one thing you truly desired. My question is why your God would want to deny you of the happiness you deserve no matter what your past childhood was like. I have to argue with your view that God has to be first place in your life. I feel you should never put someone else before your own, it only cost you emotions which is something you have had to deal with by making the choices you have to please this God that is not proven to exist Mr. Kierkegaard. My second argument has to do with your view on “The Sickness-Unto-Death”. I disagree with the statement ‘His eventual conclusion was that nothing earthy can save a person from despair. Only a subjectivism commitment to the infinite and to God, not based on abstract intellectualizing or theoretical reasoning, can......

...Week 3 Writing Assignment Brittany Lynch Keiser University WEEK 3 WRITING ASSIGNMENT PART 1 The Author I chose is Randall Jarrell. His passage is very interesting. The most significant thing about the protagonist is the fact that he's dead. He tells us the tale of his own death. It is also important to think about how he tells us the story. He doesn't seem too worked up about it—quite the opposite, really. He tells us part of the story in a fairly dry, matter-of-fact way, and he tells us other parts in a kind of mysterious, figurative way. So, what are the advantages of having a dead speaker? It gives the poem a very different tone than it might have if the speaker were recounting the death of a friend or fellow soldier. It is unusual for us to be able to discuss something as dramatic and emotional as a violent death in such a detached or metaphorical way as our speaker does. By writing this poem in the voice of a dead soldier, Jarrell is able to make every aspect of the poem contain the element of death, even the parts that are about living. The living are always going to have a very different perspective on death than the dead which makes this passage so interesting because it give the perspective on death from the actual dead, which is seldom because …well, they’re DEAD!

Writing Assignment

...Writing Assignment One One of the dreams I have ever made in my childhood was to be the star among the children. At that time, I was fond of holding the power to be the person who does the decision making eventually in a group. However, in my personal growth, I gradually notice that it is not an inborn job to become the leader in a group. Recent approaches to leadership also focus on ways to develop individual’s capacity to engage effectively in leadership roles (Reading #3). From this perspective, it becomes important and necessary to deliberate and improve my own strengths or flanks in leadership and team interaction skills. And also, I have had a discussion with my “coaches” and they gave me lots of helpful feedback on my thoughts about these strengths or flanks. First of all, I think that I am one of those persons who have the ability to concentrate on the work. It is not easy for me to be distracted by something else. For example, I can work at a relatively noisy or terrible environment and do not pay much attention to it. My ECC gave me an idea that there should be something which attracts me a lot in that work. She thought that I need to analyze each work deeper in order to apply this kind of concentration to the team (ECC’s comment). However, from my point of view, I am not very sure whether this is a strength or a weakness in leading a team. Maybe from the leadership perspective, I will pay too much attention to something I am focusing on. I will not have a big...

Edward treated Winston for Alzheimer's disease, but since he believed he was destitute, he never charged him for his medical services. In late Fall Winston went to see Edward for a routine checkup and Winston said to Edward, "I want to pay you back for all you have done for me over the years. If you will care for me for the rest of my life, I will give you my office building. I'm frightened because I have no heirs and you are the only one who cares for me. I need to know now that I can depend on you." Edward doubted that Winston owned any office building, but said nothing in response and just completed his examination of Winston and gave him some medication. Since Winston made the statement two years went by. Winston's health worsened and Edward continued to treat him. Edward forgot about Winston's statement regarding the office building. After five years of treating Winston, Edward learned that Winston was indeed the owner of the office building. Edward, remembering......
