I spent a large portion of my day working on the teach project. I’m excited to have a “rough draft” that is ready to be viewed by all next week. I’m also really excited to see what approaches other classmates took with this assignment. Next week I’ll focus on reviewing all of the information one last time and making adjustments here and there to provide for a better overall layout.

As I mentioned in on my report page I only used one website to help me with my financial output data. The website I used was very user friendly and easy to navigate. This website saved me a lot of time since I would have had to manually do the math without it. For next week’s teach project I think that I’m going to create a lesson that will teach others how to list a product or services on Craigslist. A few other ideas I had were teaching someone how to use an Iphone, or teaching someone how to use Outlook for email.
Finally I’m all done with my Culture Assignment!!! While I enjoyed learning about Cher I must admit that I did not like this assignment. The articles from credible sources were limited and the articles that I was able to find all said the same thing more or less. I ended up not meeting my minimum word requirement because in order to do so would have resulted in me adding “fluff” to my paper which I felt would do more harm than good. It was difficult to find out any information about Cher’s childhood or even early adulthood for that matter. All of the information I found was related to her two most recent companies and focused on her as a business woman not as a wife and mother.
I’ve sent an email to Jane asking for if she has any suggestions on additional material (websites, books, etc) on Cher Wang. I was able to find quite a bit of information using Google or Yahoo searches however I would like to find information about Cher from a more reliable source. I’m hoping to get some valuable tips from Jane.
Cher Wang is the founder of a company called HTC. The company is based in Taiwan and manufacturers smartphones. HTC manufacturer’s one out of every six smart phones in the American market. Cher received her master’s degree in economics from the University of California- Berkley in 1981. Currently Wang and her husband are known as one of the richest couples in Taiwan. Even though Cher is still alive I think that the possibility of interviewing her would be nearly impossible. From the information that I read online regarding Cher it appears that she comes from a very wealthy family. She is a citizen of the Republic of China and is Taiwanese.
