Freeing the Caged Bird: The Politics of Power in Maya Angelou’s Selected Poems

Paper instructions:

2 pages introduction

Context of the Problem:

This paper will discuss the politics of power in Angelou’s poetry and her attempt to freeing the sexual and racial norms prisoners. How the struggle is depicted and the voice of these prisoners heard are questions to be

answered in detail with a number of racial and sexual references prevailing in some of her poems like “Caged bird”, ” Equality”, ” Phenomenal Women”, and  ” Still I Rise “.
Research Questions:
Based on the explanation above, the research questions are formulated as follows :
• How the Afro- American feminist marginalized experience is investigated in these selected poems?
• What are the figurative language and imagery related to the cage of gender and race appeared in Maya Angelou poems?
• How does Angelou manage to give the marginalized individual their voice and what they should do in order to resist the oppression?
Method & Procedures:
Maya Angelou’s poetry captures the phenomenon of resistance in the background of post colonialism. The poems are like an articulation of the process for national, racial, and feminine identity.
All her poetry is a kind of painful process of recalling the past broken and disengaged in fragments, and an effort to show the black women seeking to survive against masculine prejudice at social or psychological level in

addition to white’s hatred of black and black’s lack of power. It is also about all women in the world, how they placed, how they are represented, and what their attitude should be.
In order to discuss these matters, a thoroughly analysis and explanation will be made to the poems ” “Caged bird”, ” Equality”, ” Phenomenal Women”, and  ” Still I Rise “.

This is a book to reference off and please include intext ciatation

After completing the Reading for this unit, think about how you might test the usability of your tutorial with your intended audience. Consider how the testing might differ between the text-based version of your tutorial and your

digital media project that highlights one aspect of your tutorial. For this Discussion Assignment, describe the testing plan you would adopt and challenges you would face with the testing process. Include the following information

in your response:

Audience. Describe the individuals who would partake in the test. For example, would you find adults who fit your audience characteristics developed in Unit 3? Would you rely on adults who can imagine themselves in the place

of your intended audience? Or, would you rely on feedback from experts on the topic who are not part of your tutorial’s intended audience? Explain your decision.

Method. Describe the potential environment and process for the testing. For example, would the testing take place in a regulated environment or real-world environment (e.g., user’s home)? Would the user just read your tutorial

or try to implement the suggestions in your tutorial? Explain your decisions.

Challenges. Describe the challenges you might face during the usability testing and how you might overcome these challenges. For example, video recording the usability testing would allow for detailed evaluation of your tutorial’s

use, but it may be costly or intimidate the user.


Week 1 Forum- Partnerships

| October 20, 2014

Week 1 Forum- Partnerships

Hart Nance and Jason Symington operate gift boutiques in shopping malls. The partners split profits and losses equally, and each takes an annual withdrawal of $80,000. To even out the workload, Nance travels around the

country inspecting their properties. Symington manages the business and serves as the accountant. From time to time, they use small amounts of store merchandise for personal use. In preparing for his daughter’s wedding,

Symington took inventory that cost $10,000. He recorded the transaction as follows: debited Cost of Goods Sold for $10,000 and credited Merchandise Inventory for $10,000

1. How should Symington have recorded this transaction?
2. Discuss the ethical aspects of Symington’s action.

Week 2 Forum- The Importance of Cash Flow
Moss Exports is having a bad year. Net income is only $60,000. Also, two important overseas customers are falling behind in their payments to Moss, and Moss’s accounts receivable are ballooning. The company desperately

needs a loan. The Moss Exports Board of Directors is considering ways to put the best face on the company’s financial statements. Moss’s bank closely examines cash flow from operating activities. Daniel Peavey, Moss’s

controller, suggests reclassifying the receivables from the slow-paying clients as long-term. He explains to the board that removing the $80,000 increase in accounts receivable from current assets will increase net cash provided

by operations. This approach may help Moss get the loan.

1. Using only the amounts given, compute net cash provided by operations, both without and with the reclassification of the receivables. Which reporting makes Moss look better?
2. Under what condition would the reclassification of the receivables be ethical? Unethical?
Week 3 Forum- The Rolex Benefit
Becky Knauer recently resigned from her position as controller for Shamalay Automotive, a small, struggling foreign car dealer in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. Becky has just started a new job as controller for Mueller

Imports, a much larger dealer for the same car manufacturer. Demand for this particular make of car is exploding, and the manufacturer cannot produce enough to satisfy demand. The manufacturer’s regional sales managers

are each given a certain number of cars. Each sales manager then decides how to divide the cars among the independently owned dealerships in the region. Because of high demand for these cars, dealerships all want to receive

as many cars as they can from the regional sales manager.

Becky’s former employer, Shamalay Automotive, receives only about 25 cars each month. Consequently, Shamalay is not very profitable.

Becky is surprised to learn that her new employer, Mueller Imports, receives more than 200 cars each month. Becky soon gets another surprise. Every couple of months, a local jeweler bills the dealer $5,000 for “miscellaneous

services.” Franz Mueller, the owner of the dealership, personally approves payment of these invoices, noting that each invoice is a “selling expense.” From casual conversations with a salesperson, Becky learns that Mueller

frequently gives Rolex watches to the manufacturer’s regional sales manager and other sales executives. Before talking to anyone about this, Becky decides to work through her ethical dilemma. Put yourself in Becky’s place.

1. What is the ethical issue?
2. What are your options?
3. What are the possible consequences?
4. What should you do?
Week 4 Forum- Bonus Temptations
Rick Pines and Joe Lopez are the plant managers for High Mountain Lumber’s particle board division. High Mountain Lumber has adopted a just-in-time management philosophy. Each plant combines wood chips with chemical

adhesives to produce particle board to order, and all product is sold as soon as it is completed. Laura Green is High Mountain Lumber’s regional controller. All of High Mountain Lumber’s plants and divisions send Green their

production and cost information. While reviewing the numbers of the two particle board plants, she is surprised to find that both plants estimate their ending Work-in-Process Inventories at 75% complete, which is higher than

usual. Green calls Lopez, whom she has known for some time. He admits that to ensure their division would meet its profit goal and that both he and Pines would make their bonus (which is based on division profit), they agreed

to inflate the percentage completion. Lopez explains, “Determining the percent complete always requires judgment. Whatever the percent complete, we’ll finish the Work-in-Process Inventory first thing next year.”

1. How would inflating the percentage completion of ending Work-in-Process Inventory help Pines and Lopez get their bonus?
2. The particle board division is the largest of High Mountain Lumber’s divisions. If Green does not correct the percentage completion of this year’s ending Work-in-Process Inventory, how will the misstatement affect High

Mountain Lumber’s financial statements?
3. Evaluate Lopez’s justification, including the effect, if any, on next year’s financial statements.
4. Address the following: What is the ethical issue? What are the options? What are the potential consequences? What should Green do?
Week 5 Forum- CVP Analysis
You have just begun your summer internship at Omni Instruments. The company supplies sterilized surgical instruments for physicians. To expand sales, Omni is considering paying a commission to its sales force. The controller,

Matthew Barnhill, asks you to compute: (1) the new breakeven sales figure, and (2) the operating profit if sales increase 15% under the new sales commission plan. He thinks you can handle this task because you learned CVP

analysis in your accounting class.

You spend the next day collecting information from the accounting records, performing the analysis, and writing a memo to explain the results. The company president is pleased with your memo. You report that the new sales

commission plan will lead to a significant increase in operating income and only a small increase in breakeven sales.

The following week, you realize that you made an error in the CVP analysis. You overlooked the sales personnel’s $2,800 monthly salaries and you did not include this fixed marketing cost in your computations. You are not sure

what to do. If you tell Matthew Barnhill of your mistake, he will have to tell the president. In this case, you are afraid Omni might not offer you permanent employment after your internship.

1. How would your error affect breakeven sales and operating income under the proposed sales commission plan? Could this cause the president to reject the sales commission proposal?
2. Consider your ethical responsibilities. Is there a difference between: (a) initially making an error and (b) subsequently failing to inform the controller?
3. Suppose you tell Matthew Barnhill of the error in your analysis. Why might the consequences not be as bad as you fear? Should Barnhill take any responsibility for your error? What could Barnhill have done differently?
4. After considering all the factors, should you inform Barnhill or simply keep quiet?
Week 6 Forum- Professional Ethics
Rita Lane is the accountant for Outdoor Living, a manufacturer of outdoor furniture that is sold through specialty stores and Internet companies. Lane is responsible for reviewing the standard costs and making recommendations

for adjustments to the controller. While reviewing the standards for the coming year, two ethical issues arise.

Ethical Issue 1
Lane has been approached by Casey Henderson, a former colleague who worked with Lane when they were both employed by a public accounting firm. Henderson has recently started his own firm, Henderson Benchmarking

Associates, which collects and sells data on industry benchmarks. He offers to provide Lane with benchmarks for the outdoor furniture industry free of charge if she will provide him with the past three years of Outdoor Living’s

standard and actual costs. Henderson explains that this is how he obtains most of his firm’s benchmarking data. Lane always has a difficult time with the standard-setting process and believes that the benchmark data would be

very useful.

1. Use the IMA’s ethical guidelines ( to identify the ethical dilemma.
2. Identify the relevant factors in the situation, and suggest what Lane should recommend to the controller.

Ethical Issue 2
Outdoor Living’s management is starting a continuous improvement policy that requires a 10% reduction in standard costs each year for the next three years. Dan Jacobs, manufacturing foreman of the Teak furniture line, asks

Lane to set loose standard costs this year before the continuous improvement policy is implemented. Jacobs argues that there is no other way to meet the tightening standards while maintaining the high quality of the Teak line.

1. Use the IMA’s ethical guidelines ( to identify the ethical dilemma.
2. Identify the relevant factors, and suggest what Lane should recommend to the controller.
Week 7 Forum- The Decision to Outsource
Mary Tan is the controller for Duck Associates, a property management company in Portland, Oregon. Each year, Tan and payroll clerk Toby Stock meet with the external auditors about payroll accounting. This year, the auditors

suggest that Tan consider outsourcing Duck Associates’ payroll accounting to a company specializing in payroll processing services. This would allow Tan and her staff to focus on their primary responsibility: accounting for the

properties under management. At present, payroll requires 1.5 employee positions—payroll clerk Toby Stock and a bookkeeper who spends half her time entering payroll data in the system.

Tan considers this suggestion, and she lists the following items relating to outsourcing payroll accounting:
a. The current payroll software that was purchased for $4,000 three years ago would not be needed if payroll processing were outsourced.
b. Duck Associates’ bookkeeper would spend half her time preparing the weekly payroll input form that is given to the payroll processing service. She is paid $450 per week.
c. Duck Associates would no longer need payroll clerk Toby Stock, whose annual salary is $42,000.
d. The payroll processing service would charge $2,000 per month.

1. Would outsourcing the payroll function increase or decrease Duck Associates’ operating income?
2. Tan believes that outsourcing payroll would simplify her job, but she does not like the prospect of having to lay off Stock, who has become a close personal friend. She does not believe there is another position available for

Stock at his current salary. Can you think of other factors that might support keeping Stock, rather than outsourcing payroll processing? How should each of the factors affect Tan’s decision if she wants to do what is best for

Duck Associates and act ethically?
