Project 6 Progress Report

The U.N. Group

Progress Report of Coal Regulations

  1. Introduction
    1. We are reporting on the progress made during the past two weeks on Project 6.
    2. The report covers various strategies the group has made toward a better presentation and understanding of the problem
  1. Audience
    1. Major Issue
      1. As stated by supervisors, we need to narrow our target audience.
      2. Having a big audience doesn’t address a specific problem wanted by supervisors in regards to coal regulation.
  • If left unchecked, further ozone deterioration and corporation irresponsibility will take place.
  1. There is no quick solution to this problem, instead we will focus on a particular group who we hope may contribute effective solutions in the near future.
  1. Recommendations
    1. Coal regulation is a serious issue that need an increasing number of people with higher education.
    2. We must get more people into college and motivate them to do well.
  • Only the young with interest in science and math who are motivated from day one can be the decision makers in finding practical global solutions.
  • Exposing
    1. No longer should use we use a positive or optimistic need for young scientist
      1. Ex. Typical high school pandering, “Math and science are fun and the future!”
    2. A darker tone should be casted upon students especially those in America, where many opportunities are given but squandered away.
      1. New slogan,” If you don’t contribute to this field, we will all die.”
    3. Positive Results
      1. In neighboring countries, strict and tight control over the youth has produced many constructive workers
      2. The rhetoric of, “Childhood is a joke” must be enforced
    4. Other Areas
      1. We are currently working hard to see progress in other forms of communication with different speakers
    5. Conclusion
      1. This is a long term problem that need to be address by educated people
        1. At the current pace, young people have no motivation to work hard.
      2. We will find solutions

Project 3 memo

Project 3 Topic Memo
From: The U.N. Group
To: Derek Risse
Date: October 7, 2014
The topic we chose to write about in Project 3 is How to make medical marijuana brownies.
Difficulties
In writing about this topic are the following: Wikihow may not accept this topic, some group members do not have much experience in medical marijuana brownies, and images may be difficult to gather.
Overcoming adversity:
Our group has several ideas on how to overcome the difficulties listed above. To overcome the difficulty of experience, Branden who has a family member with direct experience can enlighten the group. We can also do some intensive research on our topic, and gather the information we need. Since we won’t know whether Wikihow will accept our topic we will have to wait until we post our article. We believe that our article will not be taken down because while researching similar topics on Wikihow we found multiple pages related to marijuana. We will also try our hardest to adhere to the guidelines that wikihow has recommended to follow. The possible difficulty of images that we do not have can be solved by either Branden’s brother taking pictures as he makes some, or by finding some pictures online.

Instuctions memo Proposal

ENG 3050

Introduction to Technical Communication

To:      Derek Risse and remaining group members

From:  Ritwik Khare – U.N. Group Member

Date:   October 7, 2014

Subject: Instructions Memo

The following will propose which process to be explain in further detail. The task was assigned by Professor Bradley Stabler, who is no longer the presiding supervisor. Instead graduate student Derek Risse will be acting teacher and grader.

Tennis

As an avid player and coach, tennis has been an instrumental part to my life. What may seem as a simple ball and racquet sport, contains many layers that has provided me a guideline which I try to emulate in my current lifestyle. The most important object in tennis that connects the sport to the player is the racquet. This instrument is swung, hit and beaten by all seasoned players. But when it comes to caring, no action is more important than its ‘re-gripping’.

Grips

Whenever a player re-grips his racquet, he’s showing how much he cares and admires the sport. Grips can be purchased either online or through a specialty store. Afterwards, the player must carefully wrap the long grip onto the main handle, so a confident and tacky grip is placed against the player’s hand. Without a good grip, a player’s racquet may slip during gameplay which, in turn, may hit the ground causing it to crack rendering it unplayable and useless.

Team

As stated above, the ‘re-gripping’ process is very important to anyone playing tennis. One of the members, Ibrahim Humaisan, is a current physical therapy major, who understands the importance of proper sports equipment while playing any sport. I hope this memo will find the other group members well.

Please let me know if the above task will be a suitable group instructions topic.

Team Charter: Wrap – up

ENG 3050

Subject: Project two charter

The following is our team charter highlighting possible problems and various solutions while working together to achieve our goals.

Teamwork

This is the second collaboration for the U.N. group.  Based off our initial success, we decided to come together for a larger project.  As a team, we have established goals for the group and on an individual level so we may find the best solution to any problem.  For example, we have already established finishing any group task 24 hours prior to due date.  We are not only 100% committed to this project but also open to new and different styles of learning.  If we see each other’s positives traits and apply them to solving the goal, then we will also learn from each other while increasing our proficiency in technical writing.

 

Participation

While work, studying for other classes, and emergency situations may arise during various assignment times, it’s imperative that we schedule various meeting to discuss article writing and progress.   We will try our hardest to meet the deadlines, but if we happen to miss a deadline we will immediately collaborate to fix up the schedule, or do the assignment as soon as we can.  If one member can adequately communicate any problem to the rest of the group, that issue must be resolved, For example, one of our group members has an active job outside of class.  When we approached him about future group meetings, we were able to schedule a number of blocked out times so the entire group could meet and discuss the next paper to be written.

 

Rank and Yank

As a group we prefer the ranking system.  Since the beginning, we have come together and communicated well amongst each other, not to say that we haven’t had major issues but we are better than most.  As comfortable as we are with each other, the rank puts each one of accountable while keeping the group together.

 

We eagerly await your response and opinion regarding our teamwork charter

Project One Wrap-up

The following provides multiple strategies to improve The U.N. Group’s productivity heading into future project.

 

I believe, The U.N. Group executed a well documentation and explanation of the game known as Speedaway.  We came together with virtually no conflict or outspokenness and were able to complete the task with time to spare.  While striving was at minimum, there were noticeable areas and methods carried out between groups members that could have been improved.  Most notably was scheduling groups work sessions.  All groups’ members have busy lives including, working a job, student activities and taking care of siblings.  In order to create the best submission, we must find a better way to plan meetings.  The next issue involves understanding formal language.  I felt while writing this article, we were informal with each other during conversation that we overlooked formal context.  The last improvement needed is a division of leadership.  During the course to the assignment, everybody felt the need contribute a certain part to article and wouldn’t conform to any other idea.  Had we come together on ideas, we would have been able to finish the task sooner and make quality edits.

After mentioning these issues and possible improvements, I feel our group is better prepared to handle further tasks in the future.

Project One: Speedaway by The U.N. Group

Speedaway

Summary: Speedaway pronounced (speed -‘A’-way ball) is a game composed of 11 players on each team that combines soccer, football and basketball.  Originally created by Physical Education teacher Marjorie A. Larsen. Although there is no official league, Speedaway is played in physical education classes 6th-12th grade worldwide. When players are well versed in the game, there’s a constant movement of the ball between feet and hands on a huge pitch either indoor or outdoor.  Only a soccer ball is needed to play the game, ensuring that anyone can pick-up and play the game with no need for expensive equipment. The game is fast, challenging and should make a significant contribution to any player’s physical fitness.

Description: The objective of Speedaway is to take the ball from one side of the field to the other in order to score points.  Active players must implement a soft touch rule to make game play fair amongst various sizes and ages.  No rough play is permitted during game play.

Background Info: Speedaway was originated as a game for girls by Marjorie Larsen in California and the first rule book was published in 1950.  It’s a field team game and is a combination of soccer, basketball, and field hockey, with an opportunity to run with the ball.  At its peak, Speedaway has grown in popularity throughout the United States, Canada, England, and India and is now being played by both boys and girls, with thousands of school children playing the game. Speedaway was developed out of a need for a lead-up sport to field hockey and for a game that could bring enjoyment and satisfaction to participants without a great deal of time spent in learning complicated rules and special techniques.

Gameplay: Speedaway is played on a normal American Football field shown to the right or soccer field. A full adult (size 5) soccer ball is used as the ball since its flexible to kick, dribble, and throw. If played on a soccer field, cones can be set up on designated areas to decrease the size of the field.

Teams: Each team consists of 11 players as in soccer. They are further broken down into 5 forwards, 3 midfielders, 2 defenders, and 1 goalie. The forwards job is primarily to score points, the midfielder’s job is to assist the forwards as well as the defenders.  The goalie’s job is to protect the goal against scoring, while the defenders protect his or her respective side as well as aiding the goalie in protecting the home side.

Rules: The game starts off with a coin toss. When a team is kicking off they must be on their side of the midline , the opposing team must be on the opposite side of the midline and outside the circle. Whichever team wins the toss will start with the ball in the middle of the field. Speedaway uses a soccer ball which may be moved down the field on the ground as in soccer, or by passing through the air similar to football. When an offensive player has possession of the ball and an opponent tags or simply touches him or her, the player must instantly drop the ball and give possession to the defending team. The team that gains possession must now kick the ball from where it was dropped. To pass the ball to a teammate, one may kick, throw, or bounce pass accordingly. When bounce passing to another teammate the ball can only hit the ground once. If the ball bounces more than one time the team with possession cannot pick the ball back up. When the ball is kicked or thrown out of bounds, the team that last touched the ball loses possession and the opposite team may throw or kick the ball into the field. Only the goalie can pick up the ball with his or her hands at any give time.  All players, beside the goalie, have to kick the ball up to themselves from the ground in order to run with the ball or make aerial passes. Each team has three time-outs they may use during the game. Any player with possession of the ball may call time-out when the ball is dead or when someone is injured. The game is broken down into four quarters and two halves each quarter being ten minutes long, making the game forty minutes. Speedaway ball is officiated by two referees, each official is responsible for each half of the field. Their responsibilities include: stopping the game after each quarter, calling fouls, and out of bounds plays. Officials must place the ball before kick offs and have the authority to remove players from play who are being too aggressive, in their own judgement.

Scoring: There are three different ways to score in Speedaway ball. The first is by a field goal worth 3 points, which is when a player kicks the ball through the opponent’s two uprights. The second way a player can score is by kicking the ball into the goal below the crossbar, which is worth 2 points. The final way to score is when a player runs the ball through the opponent’s goal line, similar to a touchdown, worth 1 point.

Penalties: A team is penalized when one or more of the following occur:

1) A player with the ball is tagged by the defense and does not immediately drop the ball.

2) The ball is illegally picked up from the ground following a change of possession

3) A player fouls an opponent, by hitting, shoving, or by performing any sort of roughness.

When any of the following penalties takes place, a free kick is placed 10 yards in front of the goal with the goalie defending. A player has one shot to score one point with a free kick.
