The idea is to adopt more energy-saving initiatives while also helping to improve state’s infrastructure. 

 
California’s High-Speed Rail Project
A goal of the Obama administration has been to promote high-speed rail across the most populous and geographically-dispersed states in the United States. The idea is to adopt more energy-saving initiatives while also helping to improve state’s infrastructure.  It is with this in mind that the Federal Government made billions available to various states in the 2008–2010 budget cycles.  After the Fall, 2010 elections, several states that had elected Republican governors refused the grants, suspicious that this seed money would not be sufficient to pay for what they viewed as unnecessary construction based on over-optimistic expectations of the need for and use of high-speed rail.  One of the states that accepted the money and has moved forward strongly into high-speed rail has been California, which has already begun work on a 65-mile section in the middle of the state, earning the derisive nickname, the “train to nowhere.”  This case details the state’s projections regarding the need for high-speed rail, against the views of infrastructure experts and critics who charge that for a state that is already in a severe budget crisis, this is just the sort of project that makes no sense economically or demographically.
Questions
Assess the benefits and drawbacks of the high-speed rail project. In your opinion, do benefits outweigh drawbacks, or vice versa? Why? Justify your answer.
What are the implications of starting a project based on tenuous projections that may or may not come true 10 years from now?
Could you justify the California high-speed rail project from the perspective of a massive public works initiative? In other words, what other factors enter into the decision of whether to pursue a high-speed rail project? Why are they important?

Lewin’s change management model

 
Overview
The leadership of the Singaporean-headquartered software solutions organization is concerned about issues arising from communication and coordination challenges between employees at the U.S. branch and the Singaporean headquarters. The VP of the U.S. branch tasks you, as an HR consultant, with developing a change management plan.
You decide that before you prepare and present a change management plan, the VP should be familiar with various change management models. This will enable you to explain and justify your use of a particular model to create the change management plan. You decide to create a report that introduces the various change management models and send it to the VP. The report also identifies your selected model for the change management plan and justifies your selection.
Prompt
For this assignment, you need to share with the VP in the course scenario the rationale for deploying a particular change management model at the U.S. branch of the Singaporean software solutions provider.
Specifically, you must address the following criteria for the creation of the change management model report:
Provide a brief description of change management models listed below:

ADKAR change management model
Kotter’s change management model
Lewin’s change management model

Compare the benefits of these change management models listed above.
Determine the most appropriate change management model for the U.S. branch. Support your response with research.

Identify problem areas related to change indicated in the Employee Engagement Surveys and Leaders’ Self-Evaluations.
How does the selected change management model resolve these problem areas?
What other features of the selected change management model make it appropriate for the U.S. branch?

Guidelines for Submission
Submit the report using double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. This assignment should be 3- to 4-pages in length and include references cited in APA format. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.

Which of the different versions of the cinderella story that holmes’ mentions are you familiar with?

In an article for NPR, Linda Holmes inquires into the essence of the Cinderella story. Though I have to preemptively apologize to any Hilary Duff fans out there (because Holmes seems to be specifically and very pointedly mad at A Cinderella Story), this article is a very useful read for us, since Holmes examines both the ancient roots and the modern variations of the Cinderella story in order to uncover the common thread that binds them all together.
???? Read “A Girl, A Shoe, A Prince: The Endlessly Evolving Cinderella”, available here:
http://www.npr.org/sections/monkeysee/2015/03/13/392358854/a-girl-a-shoe-a-prince-the-endlessly-evolving-cinderella
As you read, consider:
Which of the different versions of the Cinderella story that Holmes’ mentions are you familiar with? Do any of these versions vary significantly from the classic story, either in terms of the plot structure, tropes, symbolism, or themes? If so, do these changes impact the meaning or the story, or the moral it provides? How?
What about Cinder-fella?
One point Linda Holmes makes concerns the lack of attention and character development given to the prince in the Disney film of Cinderella (as in most versions of the tale):
“In the 1950 cartoon, the prince is, in film terms, a MacGuffin. He is not a person but an object of pursuit, like the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. Or maybe he’s the prize, like the trophy at the end of The Karate Kid. Either way, he is not human…If you were putting on a stage play based on that cartoon and you were short of actors, my very first suggestion would be that you obtain a large bag of flour and a toupée, allowing you to dispense with casting anyone at all as the prince.” 
Not only the prince, but all of the male characters get minimal attention in the versions of Cinderella that we’ve read. When they do show up, what do they represent to us?
Consider:
What does the story of Cinderella communicate about men/masculinity? What assumptions do they make and beliefs do they communicate about men’s nature? What ideals do they endorse about masculinity?
???? Write a brief paragraph (100-300 words) discussing the questions above in relation to one or more versions of Cinderella, and other fairy tales if you choose.
