Unit 6 Discussions

Unit 6 DB: Rap – East versus West Coast (MUS121 Rhythm, Blues & Hip Hop)

There were stylistic differences between East Coast rappers/hip-hop artists and the West Coast rappers/gangsta rappers. Identify an artist from each of the coasts and share one of the songs (use the mashup tool) by each of these artists. What is similar and what is different about these musical styles and performances? What musical influences (blues? R&B? rock?) do you hear in each style of rap?

In response to at least two of your peers, when responding to your peers this week, choose another song by one of the artists (use the mashup tool) your peers has chosen and explain how this is similar or different to what your peer has shared with the class. 

Unit 6 Discussion (ACC211 Managerial Accounting)

How can the identification of the variances help management control costs? Please explain.

As you are considering the flexible budgeting topic of the week, it is important for you to look at this analysis as a significant contribution to the management of the company.  Knowing what the bottom line profit or loss is important.  But what is more important is to understand how your actual results varied in terms of units sold versus how the actual cost of each unit differed from the budget.

Please do watch the video available in this week’s resources – you can turn the sound off and read the script on the right side if you need to.  The lecturer has an excellent example that will help you.

Do you have an example that you can share?  Sometimes that’s the best way to answer the question.

Unit 6 Discussion: Earned vs. Paid Media (MKT200 Principles of Marketing)

Overview:

There are several various forms of media as it related to digital marketing. Take a look at this short video Meylan, C. (January 24th, 2018) Owned-Paid-Earned (OPE) Media before jumping into this week’s business scenario.

In Style Fashion is a new entrant into the fast fashion market. InStyle Fashion targets Gen Z aged between 18-22 and Millennials aged between 23-28 years old. This market is valued at $35.8 billion and two of their primary rivals are Fashion Nova and Missguided. 

Simulated Business Scenario:

Julio, the owner of InStyle Fashion, is trying to follow the earned media model of leveraging the reach of social media to promote the launch of new products. In other words, when customers become the channel.

Julio has recruited Marguerite from ASOS (another brand that relies on earned media) to head up this new initiative. There is a lot of positive buzz from the fashion industry and Marguerite is charged with creating and distributing press releases in an integrated marketing communications plan in advance of the Q3 (late spring, early summer) launch of the InStyle Fashion brand.

Questions:

  • What      social media platforms (owned media) should Marguerite recommend based on      InStyle Fashion’s target audience?
  • How      would Marguerite’s team utilize earned vs paid media for the launch of the      Premier brand?

Discuss antibullying efforts in your community. What has been done? Do these efforts infringe on the First Amendment rights of either party? Why or why not? Support your opinion.

Unit 6.2 DB: Community-Oriented Policing (CRJ102 Introduction to Law Enforcement)

Community-oriented policing is an approach toward crime that addresses the underlying causes of crime and endeavors to apply long-term problem solving to the issues through improved police-community partnerships and communication. How is this possible when the average tenure of a police chief is just over three years? Will top management changes derail long-term partnerships? What is your idea to keep this moving forward with changes that are made in the administrations? Support your opinion.
