You should have already done the Stuart Hall reception-theory exercise where you found three critical reviews/articles for the most popular entertainment you watched during week 4 (see SLIDE DECK): one response or “reading” that was dominant (100% positive – a glowing review), one that was negotiated (the author engaged critically with the entertainment and wrote a compelling article that was neither all positive or all negative) and one that was oppositional (100% negative – a disastrous review).
For this short essay (500 words minimum, 550 words max), I ask that you accept bell hooks’s call to be “enlightened witnesses” to the popular entertainment you are consuming and explore the following prompts:
1) Reread the three reviews and/or articles you found for the most popular entertainment you consumed during Week 4 for the Stuart Hall exercise and see if the authors addressed representation – for example: how are women portrayed in your popular entertainment? How are people of color represented? Is there LGBTQIA representation in your popular entertainment? (these ideas are all addressed in the bell hooks video).
If the three reviews you found do not discuss representation, find one that does. Remember there must be an author to cite.
Using evidence from your critical reviews AND the knowledge you gained from bell hooks, examine representation in your own entertainment and describe what you found; you must cite one idea from the bell hooks video to complement your analysis (6 points).
For example: Last week I watched an episode of HOUSE OF THE DRAGON and I found three reviews of the show for the Stuart Hall exercise. The oppositional review I found talked about the representation of [women] in the show [insert quote]. This reminded me of the bell hooks interview when she said [insert quote] because [write thoughtful analysis about the correlation between the quote from your review and bell hooks ideas about representation – be in gender, race or class]
For example: Last week I watched an episode of HOUSE OF THE DRAGON and I found three reviews of the show for the Stuart Hall exercise. None of the reviews I found talked about representation, so I did some more research and found this article [insert name of article and author]. This quote from my article [insert quote] reminded me of the bell hooks interview when she said [insert quote] because [write some thoughtful analysis about the correlation between the quote from your review and bell hooks ideas about representation – be in gender, race or class]
2) THEN, move into the Disney materials (WEEK 5): cite an idea, an observation from the documentary Mickey Mouse Monopoly: Disney, Childhood and Corporate Power that really spoke to you and make a connection between the documentary, the upcoming release of The Little Mermaid and the response from the public to Ariel being African-American (6 points).
3) In your opinion, what (if anything) has changed in popular entertainment since bell hooks: Cultural Criticism and Transformation and Mickey Mouse Monopoly: Disney, Childhood and Corporate Power were released, 20 years ago? Give examples (6 points).
4) Please cite your sources and include a WORKS CITED page, which includes your articles from the Stuart Hall exercise, notate if the review is a dominant, negotiated or oppositional review, please.
For example: Benz, Adam. “House Of The Dragon Birth Scene Criticized For Lack Of Trigger Warning.” Screenrant.com, August 27th, 2022 (negotiated review).
This is an exploratory essay. As long as you have read and watched ALL of the materials for the two weeks of this module (slides, articles, documentaries, video introductions), address the prompts in a thoughtful way AND proof-read/spell check, cite your sources (2 points), you will be successful!
This assignment is worth 20% of your overall grade.

Two graded artifacts
Graded artifact 1: “Identity a recent successful change initiative that has been made in your organization or in an organization with which you are familiar”
A recent successful change that has been made in an organization that I am familiar with involved switchingpermanently to remote work by embracing full digital transformation at all levels of the organization.
“Discuss the specific challenges that led to the need for change and evaluate how leaders faced these challenges and used the as an opportunity to make improvements in the organization”
The major challenge that led to this transformation is the COVID19 pandemic. In an effort to contain the spread of the disease governments across the world announced lock downs which forced business to shut down in order to comply with the regulations put in place. Upon opening up there were still restrictions placed on the number of workers allowed in addition to social distancing guidelines that ought to be met. Leaders at the organization took this upon themselves to embrace the new reality and make a shift to fully remote in order to avoid interruptions. By pursuing such leaders improved their organizations and enabled them to bounce back from the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic compared to competitors who were not willing to embrace the new reality. Improvements realized by the organization due to full working remote included reduction in costs, time saving and improved productivity. Employers and workers both benefit from the cost advantages that remote work delivers. Employers have significantly cut the cost of corporate travel, while employees have avoided the expense of travelling to and from work (Toikka, 2021). Individuals discover that they have significantly more time for their jobs and their family because they no longer have to commute vast distances to work or go to other towns or countries. Increased productivity, more time with family, exercise, and relaxation may all be achieved by taking advantage of this “found time.” Working from home has shown to be more productive for many people and their firms, which has shocked many people and their organizations alike (de Lucas Ancillo et al., 2020). Apart from the apparent benefit of saving time on commuting and flying, they also discovered that they were more productive when working away from the usual workplace distractions and noise levels were lower.
“Describe the specific change management leadership characteristics and behaviors you saw leaders display in leading the change effort and how these characteristics and behaviors led to the successful implementation of the change”
Specific change management leadership characteristics and behaviors witnessed involved adaptability, strategic thinking, decisiveness and communication. It through such characteristicsand behaviors that the organization was able to adapt to the new reality, formulate a strategy for fully shifting to working remote, openly communicate the changes and plan to shift to fully working remote before making the decision to make the shift.

FEEDBACK GIVEN FROM ARTIFACT 1: Great work with your initial post. Implementing a remote work policy at your organization appears to have a huge impact on the business.
Graded artifact number two : Mr. Chan’s organization is facing critical leadership challenges. These challenges make it difficult for workers to be done in the required manner. For Mr. Chan to provide a conducive work environment he has to implement the following changes. The organization should change the mode of communication and information transfer within the organization, improve technology in the organization for information storage and have team meetings that will foster bonding within the organization. Change the communication system in the organization. Changing communication and transfer of information will help the organization in making information on the processes that are going on in the organization to be available for the team to access for easy operations. This will foster teamwork and collaboration between the different departments that Mr. Chan has in his organization (Krajcsák, 2019). This means the organization has information stored in one cloud that will help each department get updates and responses on the way forward in their operations. Improving technology and having the same informational system will help the organization solve the issue of a filling system that the employees were complaining about. There will be no loss of documents and retrieval if employee information will be made easier within the organization. Technology improvement can help in the marketing of the products and transfer of information between organizations hence reducing the cost of traveling. This includes emailing and social media platforms that can be advantageous to the organizations marketing strategies (Matosas-López, 2021). The organization should hold meetings for all staff to be able to create a conducive working environment. this meeting should be mandatory for all staff members to create a bond between the staff members in the organization. Having a team, the work, and coordination facilitates creativity and hard work within the organization (Krajcsák, 2019). By doing this the organization will be impressing employee contribution and involvement within the organization. An organization where employees are involved in decision-making processes always encourages the employees to have loyalty to the organization since they feel recognized by their fellow workmates.

FEEDBACK GIVEN FOR ARTIFACT NUMBER TWO: Do make sure you are supporting your peer responses with research and/or data, as well as meeting the length requirements. Use your research to support your thoughts and ideas being shared in the forum. As we have seen, leaders can take many different approaches to managing change. The fact is that change is inevitable, which means the right leaders are necessary to the success of an organization or in this case HCSC. I always find it interesting to see how many different viewpoints can exist on one topic. Keep up the hard work as we move forward.

Sandra needs to be able to find information on athletes that qualify for the children’s classes, so you decide to create a query to allow her to quickly locate athletes born during or after 2011. Use the Simple Query Wizard to create a query based on the tblAthlete table. Include all fields in the query, and use qryAthletesBorn2011AndYounger as the title. Make the following changes to the query:
Add criteria to the BirthDate field to select records for athletes who were born on or after 1/1/2011.
Sort the records in ascending order by LastName.
Hide the State field so that it does not appear in the query results. (Hint: Make sure to hide this field in Design View, not in Datasheet View.)
Save and run the query, and then close it.
Create a new query in Design View that is based on the tblLevel and tblAthlete tables. Add the LevelName field from the tblLevel table to the query design. Add the FirstName, LastName, BirthDate, and Gender fields, in that order, from the tblAthlete table to the query design. Save the query with the name qryLevelsAndAthletes, run the query, and then complete the following tasks in Datasheet View:
Sort the records by BirthDate, so the oldest athletes are listed first.
Use Filter By Selection to select only those athletes who skate for the Collegiate level (Hint: Use the Equals “Collegiate” option.) Save and close the query.
Create a new query in Design View that is based on the tblCoach and tblLevel tables. Add the LevelName field from the tblLevel table to the query design. Add the CoachFirst, CoachLast, BGCExp, and CertificationExp fields, in that order, from the tblCoach table. Use qryCoachBGCExpirations to save query. Add criteria to the BGCExp field to select records with BGCExp dates that occur on or before 12/31/2019. Save and run the query, and then close it.
In the Navigation Pane, copy the qryCoachBGCExpirations query, rename the copied query qryCoach2019CertificationExpirations, and then add criteria to only select records with a BGCExp date that occurs on or before 12/31/2019 and that contains a CertificationExp date that occurs on or before 12/31/2019. (Hint: This query should only return records that meet both of the query conditions. The criteria for the BGCExp date should already be present in the copied query.) Save and run the query, and then close it.
In the Navigation Pane, copy the qryCoach2019CertificationExpirations query, rename the copied query qryCoach2019BGCOrCertificationExpirations, and then edit the criteria to only select records with a BGCExp date that occurs on or before 12/31/2019 or a record that contains a CertificationExp date that occurs on or before 12/31/2019. (Hint: This query should return records that meet one or more of the query conditions.) Save and run the query, and then close it.
Create a new query in Design View that is based on the tblAthlete and tblLevel tables. Add the LevelName field from the tblLevel table to the query design. Add the FirstName and LastName fields from the tblAthlete table. Add the MonthlyFee field from the tblLevel table. Save the query with the name qryAnnualDuesByAthlete, run the query, and then complete the following tasks:
In Design View, add a calculated field named AnnualDues to the query design in the fifth column of the design grid that determines the total annual cost of skating dues for each athlete. The expression should multiply the monthly fee amount by 12 months. Set the Caption property Annual Dues for the calculated field.
Save and run the query. Resize the Annual Dues column to best fit the data it contains.
Add the Total row to the query datasheet, and then use a function to calculate the average monthly fee and the total annual dues.
Save and close the query.
Use the Form Wizard to create a form based on the tblLevel table. Include all fields in the form, use the Columnar layout, and name the form frmLevels. Make the following changes to the form:
In Layout view, change the form title to Levels, and then change the font color of the form title to Dark Blue (4th column, 1st row of the Standard Colors palette).
Switch to Form view, and use the frmLevels form to enter a new record in the tblLevel table with the Level ID TODD, the Level Name Toddler, a Monthly Fee of $95, and a Registration Fee of $50. Save and close the form.
Use the Form Wizard to create a form containing a main form and a subform by following the instructions below:
Select all fields from the tblLevel table for the main form.
Select the AthleteID, FirstName, and LastName fields from the tblAthlete table.
Choose the option to view the data by tblLevel.
Select the Datasheet layout for the subform.
Specify the titles frmLevelsWithAthletes for the main form and frmAthleteSubform for the subform.
Switch the form to Layout view and change the title in the main form to Levels with Athletes, and then change the font color of the title to Dark Blue (4th column, 1st row of the Standard Colors palette).
Resize the Athlete ID, First Name, and Last Name columns in the subform to best fit the data they contain, or a width of at least 0.5” for each column. Resize the width of the subform to approximately 3.5” as shown in Figure 2 on the following page.
Use the navigation buttons to view each record in the main form, checking to make sure that all data is displayed in the columns in the datasheet’s subform. (Hint: The order of records in your subform may be different than shown in Figure 2.) If necessary, resize the datasheet columns and the subform to display the data so it is fully visible. When you are finished, save and close the form.
Figure 2: frmLevelsWithAthletes Form
You decide that a report showing a list of all the athletes would be useful. Use the Report Wizard to create a report based on the primary tblLevel table and the related tblAthlete table, as instructed below:
Select the LevelName, MonthlyFee, and RegistrationFee fields from the tblLevel table.
Select the LocationID, FirstName, LastName, BirthDate, and Gender fields from the tblAthlete table.
View the data by tblLevel, and do not select any additional grouping levels for the report.
Sort the records in ascending order by LocationID.
Select the Outline layout and Portrait orientation for the report.
Use rptAthleteListing as the report title.
Switch the report to Layout View, and change the report title for the rptAthleteListing report to Athlete Listing (two words).
You decide to modify the layout of the rptAthleteListing report to make it easier to read. With the report still open in Layout View, complete the following steps:
Resize the Level Name, Monthly Fee, and Registration Fee field labels by using the mouse to drag their right edges, decreasing their widths so the boxes are as wide as necessary to display their contents (approximately 1.25”).
Resize the LevelName, MonthlyFee and RegistrationFee field value controls by using the mouse to drag their right edges, decreasing their widths so the boxes are as wide as their contents (approximately 1.2”).
Right-align the contents of the LevelName, MonthlyFee, and RegistrationFee field value controls.
With the rptAthleteListing report still open in Layout View, complete the following steps:
Resize the LocationID field label and field value controls by dragging their left edges with the mouse to make all the contents visible (they should be approximately 0.8” wide).
Resize the Last Name field label and field value controls to approximately 1.5” wide by dragging their right edge with the mouse.
Move the Birth Date and Gender field labels and field value controls to the left to decrease the amount of space between the columns. The left edge of the Birth Date label and controls should be located at approximately 4.5”, and the left edge of the Gender label and controls should be located at approximately 5.6”. (Hint: The location of a control’s left edge can be viewed in the Property Sheet.)
Resize the control that contains the page number to approximately 1” wide. Use an arrow key to move the page number control so its right edge aligns with the right edge of the Gender control in the report.
Switch to Report View, and scroll through the report to confirm that all values are visible. Save the report.
Switch the rptAthleteListing report to Layout view, and use conditional formatting to format birth dates that are greater than or equal to 1/1/2008 in a bold, Green font color (6th column, 7th row of the Standard Colors palette). Display the report in Print Preview and confirm that it matches Figure 3 on the next page, and then save and close the report. (Hint: The records may appear in a different order in your report.)
