Anthro 200: Athabaskan Report

My last assignment in Anthropology 200 before starting my final exam (due Friday evening).

Just a quick page and a half with a look at the Athabaskan and their concept of “luck” when it comes to hunting.

One thing not in the report that I found interesting during my research, was the number of Athabaskan language groups — more than 50, including down in the Apache and Navajo areas of the southwest US. In other words, it’s probable the Apache and Navajo indians were Athabaskan people who migrated south from Alaska and Canada.

To this day people still leave Alaska for the dry heat of Arizona. 🙂

Price Positioning Map for TRR

For my final assignment in my Marketing class I had to create a price positioning map and “Discuss what your company can do differently with their pricing strategy to stay competitive; if the evidence suggests that they are doing well with their pricing strategy you must present the evidence in a clear and concise framework.”

That’s what I ended up with (single page PDF download) — the idea to create a course that includes the online videos PLUS live (via Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.) mentoring and feedback is something I thing I will try after the first of the year.

The downside is that it really limits how many students I can have, but I just wonder if it isn’t a good way to increase my income and help the students that really want that extra touch.

Weapons and Warfare of the Tlingit

If you want to read about Weapons and Warfare of the Tlingit you can find it at the following link (a PDF file). It was the research paper for my Anthropology A200 class.

I thought I might get docked for adding humor and editorial comments to the paper, but nope. 🙂
