WATERCOLOR SUPPLY LIST
Diren He, Instructor


Watercolor brush:
   Three round brushes:  # 2,  # 8,  # 12
    Flat brushes:  1/2", 1"

Water container: 
    I prefer two. One for clean water; one for dirty water. 

Palette:
For indoor painting, butchers tray or any type of watercolor palette with large mixing areas; even white plate might work.
    If you plan to paint outdoors in the future, you might need a palette with lid (option). 

Stock:
    Any type of watercolor paper
    watercolor board (option)
    or light weight illustration board (option)

Drawing Board or a piece of plywood 

Artist tape:
    For mounting watercolor paper. If you use watercolor board or illustration board, you don't need this tape.

Pencil and Eraser:
    For sketch or rough drawing

 Paper towel or Blotting paper:
    For lifting out color and excessive water

Watercolor or Gouache in tube:
    I pick up colors that contain both cool and warm, light and dark for each hue, such as Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Yellow Deep, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red, Bengal Rose or Magenta, Alizarin Crimson, Permanent Violet, Sap Green, Permanent Green Deep, Cobalt Blue, Phthalo Blue, then add some neutral colors like Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber and White. 
    For beginner, the simplest way for choosing color is purchase a set of 12 or 18 watercolors. After using them for a while, you will figure out which color you need more, which one you use less and you might find some new colors you'd like to try.

Reference:
    I will have some still lifes or flowers in class, but I encourage you to bring your own favorite things, photos or some other reference, and camera if you like.

XBL 0110 - Resolving Workplace Conflict

Today's business environment presents new and growing challenges forcing organizations to continually increase productivity, improve quality, shorten cycle time, and reduce costs. Survey after survey confirms that people are working longer and harder at jobs that are more complex and have a wider range of responsibilities. At the same time, the way people work and communicate with one another is changing, creating added stress and complexity. The homogenous, single-function, co-located group is being replaced by dispersed, cross-functional teams with diverse areas of expertise. An unfortunate but natural by-product of these challenges is conflict. This course teaches leaders how to recognize the signs of escalating conflict and take appropriate action to minimize damage. This class is part of the Business Leadership Certificate. The DDI course is approved by HRCI and SHRM for 3.5 hours.

Course Syllabus – Pronunciation Improvement

Course Information
Course type:   non-credit
Prerequisites:  none
Textbook:  Pronouncing American English by Gertrude Orion
ISBN 0838463320


Course Description
This course approaches the pronunciation improvement of non-native speakers in a comprehensive manger.  A Variety of skills will be addressed, depending on the student’s needs and desires.  We work on consonants and vowels, word linking, sound reduction, intonation, and word and sentence rhythm (stress).  We will cover everything, or close to everything, in the book depending on the students’ level and understanding.  Students are encouraged to bring in questions pertaining to pronunciation, and if time permits other cultural or language problems.  We read rhythmic and rhyming poems aloud and each student will read a short paragraph from something of their choice.  We discuss the difference between slang and formal English, and discuss problems that occur on the phone.

Course Objectives
 We do NOT promise improvement within the 8 weeks time, although many students may notice an improvement.  This class supplies knowledge about language, attunes the ear to American, mid-west English, identifies common problems and makes the students aware of their individual problems so that they can practice and improve with time.  

Course Content Outline
The course outline depends on the students’ needs.  The first class, each student talks about them self and any problems they know they have.  The instructor listens for language problems.  Then we proceed with the problem most common in the class.  Each class, we work randomly from the book, and there is always a time for questions the students bring with them.  We try to read one rhyming and rhythmic poem each class to capture the “song and rhythm” (intonation and stress) of English.  Starting the second or third class, students will start reading out loud a paragraph of their choice.  The other students listen for problems and the student reading will reread the paragraph until it is perfect.  Depending on the size of the class, somewhere between 2-4 students will read a day.  We touch on every subject in the book, many times repeating the difficult problems for that  particular class.

XNC 8198 - To Clot Or Not To Clot: Anticoagulants and Antiplatelet Medications

Blood clots are formed to stop blood loss when an injury occurs. Without the formation of blood clots even a minor cut could result in excessive bleeding.
