Intramolecular aldol condensation dehydration reaction

Draw the skeletal structure of the indicated species.

(a) The organic starting material you need to carry out the reaction above.
(b) The major aldol addition product.

This should be a pretty effective crossed or mixed aldol condensation as the substitution of the aldehyde blocks enolization. The dehydration step is going to be an E1cb elimination to the enone.
