There are many restorations of entire settlements throughout the United States that depict the furniture and decorations used during specific time periods. Some of the more famous places to visit are Sturbridge Village, Plymouth, and Williamsburg. Other great examples of historical decorations can be seen by visiting some of the homes of the early presidents, such as George Washington’s Mt. Vernon or Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. These restorations are wonderful tributes to our past. Take the opportunity to visit them should you ever have the chance. There are also many castles and museums around the world that exemplify historical decoration, such as the many European castles. In this LIFEPAC®, you will learn about some of the more important historical periods of decoration and about the changes that have brought us to modern interior decoration. You will also be given the opportunity to develop and polish your skills at designing and decorating your own bedroom, at least on paper.

CV Samples The Basics The curriculum vitae, also known as a “CV” or “vita,” is a comprehensive statement of your educational background and your teaching and research experience. It is the standard representation of credentials within academia. The CV is only used when applying for academic positions in four-year institutions. Do NOT use a CV when applying to community colleges; use a resume instead. Tailor your CV to the specific positions to which you are applying. A CV submitted for a position at a teaching-focused liberal arts college will strongly emphasize teaching, whereas a CV for a position at researchintensive university will accentuate research. Position more relevant sections earlier in the CV. CV format can vary by field, so also seek disciplinary-specific advice from advisers, professors and others within your field. There are no length restrictions for CVs. Formatting Your CV must be well organized and easy to read. Choose an effective format and be consistent. Use bolds, italics, underlines, and capitalization to draw attention. List all relevant items in reverse chronological order in each section Strategically locate the most important information near the top and/or left side of the page. In general, place the name of the position, title, award, or institution on the left side of the page and associated dates on the right. Use a footer to include page numbers & your last name, to help the reader in case pages get separated.
Previous American Joint Committee on Cancer/International Union Against Cancer (AJCC/UICC) stage groupings for esophageal cancer have not been data driven or harmonized with stomach cancer. At the request of the AJCC, worldwide data from 3 continents were assembled to develop data-driven, harmonized esophageal staging for the seventh edition of the AJCC/UICC cancer staging manuals. METHODS: All-cause mortality among 4627 patients with esophageal and esophagogastric junction cancer who underwent surgery alone (no preoperative or postoperative adjuvant therapy) was analyzed by using novel random forest methodology to produce stage groups for which survival was monotonically decreasing, distinctive, and homogeneous. RESULTS: For lymph node-negative pN0M0 cancers, risk-adjusted 5-year survival was dominated by pathologic tumor classification (pT) but was modulated by histopathologic cell type, histologic grade, and location. For lymph node-positive, pNþM0 cancers, the number of cancer-positive lymph nodes (a new pN classification) dominated survival. Resulting stage groupings departed from a simple, logical arrangement of TNM. Stage groupings for stage I and II adenocarcinoma were based on pT, pN, and histologic grade; and groupings for squamous cell carcinoma were based on pT, pN, histologic grade, and location. Stage III was similar for histopathologic cell types and was based only on pT and pN. Stage 0 and stage IV, by definition, were categorized as tumor in situ (Tis) (high-grade dysplasia) and pM1, respectively.
“Fiscal 2010 was a defining year for Cisco following the unprecedented global economic challenges of the year before. This was our opportunity to show the world what a truly great company we are, and to position ourselves to extend our leadership in the years ahead.” In fiscal 2010, we saw a solid return to balanced growth across geographies, product and customer markets exemplified by Cisco reaching over $40 billion in fiscal year revenue. We focused our efforts on defining true innovation and operational excellence within our company. And we improved our position as a strategic partner to customers worldwide by showing how the network has become, in our view, the most strategic asset in communications and information technology (IT) today. Vision: The Network is the Platform to Change the Way the World Works, Lives, Plays, and Learns Today’s market is clearly in transition. Our customers include world-class enterprises, global service providers, small businesses and consumers. While each customer has unique needs and aspirations, they are united by a network that helps enable data center virtualization, collaboration and video to drive productivity and efficiency. The network enhances every aspect of our lives. Our customers recognize this.
To Our Shareholders, Fiscal 2013 was another strong year for Cisco, and we were pleased to have delivered record results despite a challenging and inconsistent global macroeconomic environment. Our results underscored the effectiveness of our vision and strategy and our strong execution. We consistently delivered on the commitments we made— to our customers, partners, employees, and you, our shareholders. By utilizing decades of networking investments, coupled with the breadth of our portfolio, we are providing our customers with an integrated architectural approach that solves their critical business requirements. This unique approach brings together application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), software, hardware, and services, which we believe are key to our customers’ success now and into the future. In our view, we are the only company in the industry that can deliver on this integrated architectural approach. Our momentum reflects the fundamental role the network is playing in the key technology transitions in the market, including software, silicon, cloud, mobility, bring your own device (BYOD), security, and the Internet of Everything (IoE). We believe we are well positioned as the pace of these transitions increases, because we have accelerated our own speed of innovation to stay ahead of these transitions and help our customers capitalize on them to meet their business goals.
This case was written by Nir Brueller, Adjunct Professor of Strategy and Affiliated Senior Research Fellow at INSEAD, and Laurence Capron, Professor of Strategy at INSEAD and Research Director of the INSEAD-Wharton Alliance. It is intended to be used as a basis for class discussion rather than to illustrate either effective or ineffective handling of an administrative situation.

Returning to his office in San Jose from the Christmas break on 2 January 2007, Richard Palmer, Senior Vice President of Cisco Security Technology Group, was still reflecting on his intense discussions over the past few months with Cisco Corporate Development Group about the ongoing negotiations with Scott Weiss, CEO of privately-held IronPort Systems of San Bruno (California). IronPort was the leading provider of email security solutions, focusing on spam and spyware protection for the enterprise market. By 2007, Cisco was the world leader in networking technology for the internet, having grown from two employees with one product in 1984 to more than 63,000 people, 200 offices worldwide, and 50 product lines. Its product portfolio consisted of several categories: network systems (routers, switches, optical networking), data centre (application networking services, storage networking, data centre switches), collaboration, voice and video (voice and unified communications, video, IPTV, cable and content delivery solutions), mobility/wireless (access points, outdoor wireless, wireless LAN controllers) and security (firewall, virtual private networks, security management). Cisco was also considered to be a best-in-class acquirer of high-tech companies by industry experts as well as corporate strategy practitioners.
Cisco began providing electronic support to its business in 1991 using value-added networks (VANs). The first applications offered were software downloads, defects diagnoses, and technical advice. In spring 1994, Cisco moved its system to the Web and named it Cisco Connection Online (CCO). (Not to be confused with Cisco Learning connection, which is related to e-learning at Cisco, see Chapter 5.) By 2004, Cisco’s customers and reseller partners were logging onto Cisco’s website over 2 million times a month to receive technical assistance, place and check orders, or download software. The online service has been so well received that nearly 85 percent of all customer service inquiries and 95 percent of software updates are delivered online. The service is delivered globally in 16 languages. CCO is considered a model for B2B success, and several books have been written about it. Online Ordering by Customers Virtually all of Cisco’s B2B products are made to order. Before CCO, ordering a product was a lengthy, complicated, and error-prone process because it was done by fax or by “snail mail.” Cisco began deploying Web-based commerce tools in July 1995, and within a year its Internet Product Center allowed users to configure and purchase any Cisco product over the Web. Today, a business customer’s engineer can sit down at a PC, configure a product, and find out immediately if there are any errors in the configuration (feedback is given by intelligent agents).
