Group Activity Report #1 (By Abby)

Date: October 14, 2010

Members Present: Abby Riccardo and Obrea Shaw
Memberse Absent: Joe Dickerson and Lance Sanderson

Work Accomplished:

Abby began to build the page for electoral processes on wikispaces. She has been researching and has answered the question of descriptions of major political parties. She has found the first image to place on the page for electoral processes though it has not been placed on wikispaces yet. The image refers to the level of democracy in Chinese elections.She has updated the bibliography.

Obrea accessed her wikispaces account and began work on building the current event pages. She found two articles which she has briefly described and put on a link on the Wikispaces page to the articles. The first article is about the human rights protests in China and the second article is about China's support of the Chilean miners.

Problems:
  • Finding information on the electoral process is slow moving
  • Formatting is unnattractive

Successes
  • Obrea is finding lots of articles that are unrelated to the Chinese economy
  • The work has been divided up well
Goals:
  • Complete the political parties section of the electoral processes
  • Find political cartoons for the current event page
  • Discuss progress with the rest of the group
  • Complete the who can vote section of electoral processes

Committee Report #3 for China
3/25/10 (By Abby)

Members Present: Abby Riccardo
Absent Members: Joey D., Obria Shaw, Lance Sanderson

Work Accomplished:

Lance did most of the work in the General Information section, and I completed the remaining questions. I also finished the Electoral Process section a few weeks ago. Obria has gotten a lot of good current events together and has almost completed the section. I also finished most of section 5, though I have yet to post it.

Successes/ Problems:
  • Joe needs significant help with the government structure, and now that we have finished most of our sections we will be able to help him.
  • We are finally actually completing sections so that is a definite success.
Goals:
  • I'd like us to complete sections 5,6, and 7, and begin to make progress on section 4.
