*Unit 1 Discussion (ACC111 Financial Accounting)

Anne Marie is the owner of Anne’s Beauty Salon, Inc.  Her accountant prepares a monthly financial statement for her business.  She doesn’t like to ask him questions about it.  She would rather ask you as you are her friend and since she knows that you are taking an accounting course, she asks you the following questions:

1. What does net income mean on the income statement?  If I have enough cash at the end of the month then I assume I made money.  This concept of net income seems complicated.

2. My accountant told me that the balance sheet shows assets = liabilities plus equity.  What does that mean?

3. I don’t understand what the Statement of Retained Earnings is all about.  What is retained earnings?

How would you respond to each of these questions?

*Unit 1 Discussion: Perception (COM107 Introduction to Communication)

In this unit, you are learning about how perception affects social situations.

According to your textbook, we use four types of cognitive schemata to make sense of perceptions: prototypes, personal constructs, stereotypes, and scripts. We apply schemata to organize and interpret experiences in our lives. The schemata shape our perceptions and influence how we communicate.

Find a recent example in the media (commercial, scene in a movie/TV show, etc. that was produced this year) that features two or more of these schemata, and how it influenced the social situation in the media clip. Please include an APA reference for your media clip.

In response to your peers, briefly share an experience where your perception influenced communication in a social situation.
