...forum for York photographers to meet, share techniques and collaborate on projects. Exchange melody – Babies, kids and teenagers unite! Fancy learning the bongos? Maybe ballet or mime…how about finger painting?! York has few creative groups for kids of all ages, none of which happen to be free and encompass all the arts. “Exchange York” is both a statement of intent and an invitation to the city. Exchange York is envisaged as a collective arts centre in York run entirely by young people and holding discussions, gigs, visual arts and performance. Most projects are intended to organically develop through the autonomous “Exchange Groups” that will use the space as a hub for their activity. Representatives from these groups will form the general Exchange York Collective that will devise programmes and coordinate events in the space. All work is intended to be voluntary and no one is paid. Exchange York will be a non-alcohol space and events are open to people of all ages. Throughout the twentieth century and into the first decade of the twenty-first, from our universities to our communities and workplaces, a culture of competition has created a society of isolated individuals. We find it difficult to understand our neighbours and our purpose. Exchange York will create a common public space for cross-disciplinary awareness, conversation and action.

...effluxion of time or obsolescence through technology and market changes. Accordingly, depreciation may arise even when asset has not been used in the current year but was ready for use in that year. The need for using the stand by bus may not have arisen during the year but that does not imply that the useful life of the bus has not been affected. Therefore, non-provision of depreciation on the ground that the bus was not used during the year is not tenable. As per para no. 10.1 of AS 10, ‘Accounting for Fixed Assets’, clearly states that the gross book value of the self constructed fixed asset includes the costs of construction that relate directly to the specific asset and the costs that are attributable to the construction activity in general can be allocated to the specific asset.

Social situations make some of the greatest influences in fashion, style, accessories as well as the type of car you are to purchase. In ‘todays’ era we have an amazing range of cars to choose from and our intrinsic motivation comes from affordability, durability, brand communications, neediness, technology, social media as well social status.

...Chapter 1: The Job of the General Manager A fundamental challenge facing general managers today stems from the fact that the external environment in which their organization operates-which includes current customers, potential customers, competitors, technological innovation, government, suppliers, global forces and so on-is changing so rapidly that the firm, with its finite resources and limited organizational capabilities, is hard-pressed to keep up (which it must do because of the rapidly changing environment). The Job of the General Manager The general manager’s job is to create value of the enterprise. You need to recognize emerging opportunities and challenges, prepare a response, and ensure the success of whatever plan of action you decide upon. After establishing a long-term direction and creating the strategy, the general manager must make important decisions such as making drastic reductions in the workforce, develop new technologies/capabilities, face new competitors, develop new distribution channels, establish new customer relationships, and convince employees/investors that it is moving in the right direction. Fundamental Components of the GM’s Job 1. Setting Direction 2. Creating Strategy 3. Implementing Change 4.

...Manager by “Kayod”. “kayod” is a term which refers to “hard work” or “sweating out” to achieve goals or produce something. This kind of manager tends to be action-hungry, has strong or strict working ethics and usually refuses any kind or form of bribery. Priority-oriented with a strong inclination to gut feeling, this kind of manager seeks for optimum and maximum performance from their subordinates and has gift for identifying and utilizing people and resources to address problems in the workplace. Practical and pragmatic, he or she tends to decide fast and demands faster solution to workplace problems. Impatient and impulsive, this manager tends to demand higher performance from subordinates according to his or her standards, although if properly related to, he/she could provide practical guidance and break down workloads into manageable size. Working under them is like riding a roller-coaster that never ends, and worst, they love to be the operator of that rides which means, no getting down. How to manage them is the direct opposite to operating a roller coaster: be the first to volunteer to get down before the daze becomes overwhelming. Hard worker as they know themselves to be, “Manager by Kayod” needs people to remind them that their strength is not boundless, so as the rest of the team, and the reminder would be much appreciated if given as direct feedback in a friendly manner, treating him or her as a colleague rather than a boss.

...content, remains the dominant management framework in the world. See H. Fayol, General and Industrial Management (Paris: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, 1916). For this reason, principles of management are often discussed or learned using a framework called P-O-L-C, which stands for planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Managers are required in all the activities of organizations: budgeting, designing, selling, creating, financing, accounting, and artistic presentation; the larger the organization, the more managers are needed. Everyone employed in an organization is affected by management principles, processes, policies, and practices as they are either a manager or a subordinate to a manager, and usually they are both. 1.
