Final Examination (Drama)

Answer each of the following questions as specifically as possible. Avoid generalizations. If you consult any outside sources please be sure to cite them appropriately in the exam responses.

ANTIGONE by Henrik Ibsen

1. Identify Creon’s hamartia. What is Antigone’s?

2. In Greek tragedy, what are the purposes of the Chorus?

3. What does it mean to call Tiresias a seer?

4. Identify the Aristotelian unities in Antigone.

5. According to Aristotle, what two emotions do we experience as a result or a catharsis? Why do these occur at the end of Antigone?

A DOLL’S HOUSE by Henrik Ibsen

1. What does it mean to say that the “fourth wall” has been removed? How does this fact help us to follow and understand the dramatic action on stage?

2. Playwrights often overturn or modify our expectations or character to surprise us, or to make a character a deeper, more interesting subject. Explain how Ibsen achieves this with Nora’s character by comparing what Nora seems to be early in the play to what she does become as the play draws to a close.

3. What does it mean to say that every production of A Doll’s House is an interpretation?

4. Explain the importance of Mrs. Linde’s complex past (and her involvement with Krogstad) to the play.

TRIFLES by Susan Glaspell

S & S Air’s Mortgage

| July 29, 2015

For this assignment, prepare a memo in Word, which answers the questions in the Chapter 5 case, S & S Air’s Mortgage, on page 165 of the textbook. Use Excel to do any financial calculations. You will be graded on correct financial analysis, proper use of technology, and business-like presentation.

CHAPTER CASE

S&S AIR’S MORTGAGE

M

ark Sexton and Todd Story, the owners of S&S Air, Inc., were impressed by the work Chris had done on financial planning. Using Chris’s analysis, and looking at the demand for light aircraft, they have decided that their existing fabrication equipment is sufficient, but it is time to acquire a bigger manufacturing facility. Mark and Todd have identified a suitable structure that is currently for sale, and they believe they can buy and refurbish it for about $35 million. Mark, Todd, and Chris are now ready to meet with Christie Vaughan, the loan officer for First United National Bank. The meeting is to discuss the mortgage options available to the company to finance the new facility.

Christie begins the meeting by discussing a 30-year mortgage. The loan would be repaid in equal monthly installments. Because of the previous relationship between S&S Air and the bank, there would be no closing costs for the loan. Christie states that the APR of the loan would be 6.1 percent. Todd asks if a shorter mortgage loan is available. Christie says that the bank does have a 20-year mortgage available at the same APR.

Mark decides to ask Christie about a “smart loan” he discussed with a mortgage broker when he was refinancing his home loan. A smart loan works as follows: Every two weeks a mortgage payment is made that is exactly one-half of the traditional monthly mortgage payment. Christie informs him that the bank does have smart loans. The APR of the smart loan would be the same as the APR of the traditional loan. Mark nods his head. He then states this is the best mortgage option available to the company since it saves interest payments.

Christie agrees with Mark, but then suggests that a bullet loan, or balloon payment, would result in the greatest interest savings. At Todd’s prompting, she goes on to explain a bullet loan. The monthly payments of a bullet loan would be calculated using a 30-year traditional mortgage. In this case, there would be a 5-year bullet. This would mean that the company would make the mortgage payments for the traditional 30-year mortgage for the first five years, but immediately after the company makes the 60th payment, the bullet payment would be due. The bullet payment is the remaining principal of the loan. Chris then asks how the bullet payment is calculated. Christie tells him that the remaining principal can be calculated using an amortization table, but it is also the present value of the remaining 25 years of mortgage payments for the 30-year mortgage.

Todd has also heard of an interest-only loan and asks if this loan is available and what the terms would be. Christie says that the bank offers an interest-only loan with a term of 10 years and an APR of 3.5 percent. She goes on to further explain the terms. The company would be responsible for making interest payments each month on the amount borrowed. No principal payments are required. At the end of the 10-year term, the company would repay the $35 million. However, the company can make principal payments at any time. The principal payments would work just like those on a traditional mortgage. Principal payments would reduce the principal of the loan and reduce the interest due on the next payment.

Mark and Todd are satisfied with Christie’s answers, but they are still unsure of which loan they should choose. They have asked Chris to answer the following questions to help them choose the correct mortgage.

QUESTIONS

1. What are the monthly payments for a 30-year traditional mortgage? What are the payments for a 20-year traditional mortgage?

2. Prepare an amortization table for the first six months of the traditional 30-year mortgage. How much of the first payment goes toward principal?

3. How long would it take for S&S Air to pay off the smart loan assuming 30-year traditional mortgage payments? Why is this shorter than the time needed to pay off the traditional mortgage? How much interest would the company save?

4. Assume S&S Air takes out a bullet loan under the terms described. What are the payments on the loan?

5. What are the payments for the interest-only loan?

6. Which mortgage is the best for the company? Are there any potential risks in this action?

1 Financial calculators rely on trial and error to find the answer. That’s why they sometimes appear to be “thinking” before coming up with the answer. Actually, it is possible to directly solve for r if there are fewer than five periods, but it’s usually not worth the trouble.

2 By law, lenders are required to report the APR on all consumer loans. We normally compute the APR as the interest rate per period multiplied by the number of periods in a year. According to federal law, the APR is a measure of the cost of consumer credit expressed as a yearly rate, and it includes interest and certain noninterest charges and fees. In practice, the APR can be much higher than the interest rate on the loan if the lender charges substantial fees that must be included in the federally mandated APR calculation.

Influence of Television viewing on Children

| July 29, 2015

QUESTION:

To what extent and with what justification should adult citizens be concerned about the influence of television viewing on children? In so far as there are concerns which you consider to be legitimate, what effective action would you recommend and why?

MUST ANSWER WITH THE FOLLOWING ELABORATIONS:

1.Muriel Robinson in Unit 45 and the associated reading by David Buckingham in Reader 4 provides a critical overview of the literature on children and television.

2.You may want to relate this discussion to that provided in Unit 46 by Guy Cumberbatch on media violence.

3.Please also use the half-unit by Goonasekera in Unit 44(b) includes relevant empirical findings about reactions of Asian audiences to Western television.

4.Please use the sources of Gemma Moss in Unit 43 – shows how the sense which children make of media is ‘mediated’ through talk with peers, parents and teachers.

5.Note how sources of evidence are differently balanced in the relative weight that they give, in their underlying models of communication, to the child viewer as passive receptor or as active user, or child viewer as individual as against a view of the child viewer as a member of a cultural group.

6.Note how such basic differences in starting point may affect questions that are asked and the conclusions reached.

7.Consider to what extent research questions seem to be premised on assumptions about television as negative or positive in the lives of children.

8.How far is it sensible to separate the influence of television from considerations about the influence of other media?

9.Please use Unit 46 by David Buckingham – explores the potential contribution of media education to children’s understanding, production capabilities and critical assessment of media.

YOU MUST ANSWER THE EXACT QUESTION. PLEASE USE THE REFERENCES I WILL SUPPLY IN ADDITION TO YOUR OWN. PLEASE SEND ME THE PDF OF THE SOURCES/REFERNCES YOU WILL USE. I WILL REQUIRE A PLAGIARISM REPORT AND I WILL NEED YOU TO SEND ME A DRAFT IN 5 DAYS BEFORE THE FINAL VERSION IS SENT.
