Corporate Strategy Analysis Discussion Summary

One video I had recalled with my learning team was the Xerox video. I briefly went over with my team that I found Anne decision to keep the company a float was an excellent idea and decision. I had felt like she thought put her plan carefully and got accurate information so that she could truly understand the nature her company was in. The company was falling right before her eyes and Anne had to come up with a decision-making process but also needed her team’s support and got just that. I found that a lot of my team mates thought as I did. They too agreed with Anne’s decision to go on with the company and fix its profit’s issue. My team mates and I knew that being a manager is a tough job because you are required to make decisions for a company that could either make or break you. My team mates and I know that with management comes with responsibility, dedication, and patience. Anne Mulcahy showed no fear because she had to set an example for her team. Another video would be Southwest Airlines. Gary Kelly showed empathy when it came to his customers. He to rides the same airlines and not First Class because he enjoyed the company of his customers. The fact the he could sit and have small talk with them was an amazing gesture to keep a goof relationship with the people that is supporting your company. The communication that he shared with his employees and customers will always keep the door open to his business because everyone likes to see that we are not only spending our money with these people but they are friendly and are on top of their game with their company. Their principles were to treat all customers the same as if they were kings and queens and to try to keep the cost of tickets down. I like that he does not fly first class because he wants to make his customers feel…...

...popular young adult writer. She released her first book, Crank, in 2004. At the time, Hopkins had just thought she was releasing a diary entry of what happened when her daughter “danced with the monster.” In Crank, Hopkins describes how her daughter, Kristina, took a trip to visit her low life father in Arizona for the first time in awhile. She met a few new people who belonged in the wrong crowd and her father wasn't the best protective system she had, so she met the “monster.” She left as Kristina and came back as Bree and also came back a completely different person. Hopkins goes into full detail on her daughter’s struggle with a tough addiction to cocaine. Kristina was no longer Kristina, she was Bree, whoever that was. By the end of Crank, Kristina ends up pregnant and swears she will sober up for her son. In the beginning of Glass, Hopkins second book of the series, Kristina does everything but turn her life around and she's bringing her baby into the mix. She leaves home and starts doing illegal things to keep up her habits. She moves from home to home, with man to man, and drug to even more serious drugs. Kristina, or Bree, finally gets to point where her child is taken away from her. By the end of the book, Kristina is completely out of control and is now pregnant again. Fallout is the third and final book of the Crank series. I had been greatly anticipating this book since I am a huge fan of Hopkins and her fans have been waiting since 2004 to see Kristina's......

...| Changing Our Lives Essay | By: Jorell Austin | | Dr. Kristina Nelson English 090 - Writing Fundamentals March 18, 2013 Dr. Kristina Nelson English 090 Writing Fundamentals January 13, 2013 Dr. Kristina Nelson English 090 Writing Fundamentals January 13, 2013 Changing Our Lives Essay In 2012 I made an important decision. I decided to go back to school to earn my degree. For the first time (in a long time) I decided to put myself first and to care for myself the way I have cared for so many other people over the years. My quest to earn a degree actually started long before 2013. Like most people I grew up in a traditional middle class family with two hard working and wonderful parents. My parents (like most parents) wanted me to do better and accomplish more than they did. Both of my parents came from blue collar working households without much money and no formal education. My father joined the Navy at 15 in an effort to escape racism and inequality in Natchez, MS. He never completed high school, but he was street savvy beyond his years. My mother was the daughter of a maid and a ship laborer. In 1966, she completed high school and enrolled at the local junior college. She completed her junior year of college but was forced to drop out when my grandmother suffered a stroke that left her paralyzed and unable to work. Although my mother never complained, she never seemed to get over the disappointment of not earning her college......

Lady Macbeth speaks to her husband; she wants Macbeth to act normal around Duncan so he will not suspect anything is wrong or that something is going to happen to him. "Look like the innocent flower but be the serpent under it.” (Clugston, 2010, Shakespeare Act I scene V). “Shakespeare’s Macbeth is often considered one of literature’s greatest tragedies and is said to reveal much about human nature.” (ENG 125, Kristina Munz). Many literature elements are made quite clear in this piece but I believe that from the thought, planning, and act of the murder of Duncan the symbolism, irony, and metaphors keep the reader entertained.

...drop rapidly right in front of their eyes and they cannot do anything about it. Kristina shows bad judgment throughout the novel dealing with her relationship. First, she begins dating Adam who opens up her eyes to the drug scene in Albuquerque while visiting her dad. When she returns home, she is now a whole new person, “Bree”, and soon finds herself interested in Brendan. From the beginning, Kristina knew that Brendan was no good for her and all he wanted her for was her body. However, she continues to interact with him because then she would get drugs and alcohol until eventually Kristina gets herself in a bad situation and Brendan rapes her. Months later, Kristina discovers that she is pregnant with his baby. The way Kristina deals with her new found addiction should be a warning to young teens. Her addiction shows how people have their whole life ahead of them and they ruin it with one choice. In the beginning, Kristina never expected that she would be as dependent on meth as she thought. She also begins to try other things like heroin and blood shots that would not have escalated if she had not decided to make that one choice of trying it with Adam. This just shows teens how one bad decision can negatively affect the rest of their lives. Selfishness, disrespect, no self control, etc. are all the qualities that Kristina maintains to prove that young teens should not look up to her. Kristina is selfish in the way that she will do anything to control her thirst for......

Special Needs

...The educational system meets the needs of students like Kristina with special education programs and with The Individuals with Disabilities Act(IDEA) and Individualized Education Program(IEP). By integrating children with special needs, they are able to learn easier and have the ability to excel. Also with classroom settings that are catered to students with special needs is beneficial. There are many challenges that face teachers of special needs children. They have many different learning styles to take into account, and many different learning disabilities. The teacher in the video does a great job of setting up the rest of the class and then going back and catering to those that may need more help. She also has to modify lesson plans and sometimes has to come up with different material for specific children. She said that she has to be very structured, yet be able to be flexible. A teacher must learn the different needs of each child and come up with a lesson plan that can be modified for each different need. In the case of Kristina, who could not really speak english and was behind in motor skills and education alone, she had to get really creative. She uses sign language to communicate with Kristina so she can teach the rest of the class and still have her understand. She also has a computer program that creates cards with both english and ukraine words along with the pictures so Kristina can read along with the rest of the class, or even get the satisfaction of......

Should Bobby Brown Pull Plug on Daughter

...The moral issue I wanted to discuss was from a current event in national news. The late Whitney Houston’s daughter (Bobbi Brown) is currently on life support. Brown’s cousin (Jerod Brown) stated that “doctors don’t see any hope for her condition to change”. According to Fox News, Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face-down unresponsive in the bathtub on Jan 31 (Fox News, 2015). She has been in the hospital in medically induced coma ever since. As we know, her mother (singer Whitney Houston), was found dead in a bathtub February 11, 2012. As a father of three beautiful daughters, this was very near and dear to me because I can only imagine the pain and concern that Bobbi Kristina’s father (singer Bobby Brown) could be going through. What would I do if I was in his situation? Would I want my own daughter to have a fighting chance to live until there was no chance of life? Or would not want my daughter to have to go through the state of being a “vegetable” and take her off life support. This is a moral issue for many Americans who have loved one on life support. According to Thirty-Mile Zone (TMZ), “Bobby Brown is adamant ... he doesn't want to take his daughter Bobbi Kristina off life support because he believes in God-driven miracles.” (TMZ, 2015). I am a proponent of Brown’s decision to keep his daughter on life support and putting his trust in GOD to work a miracle. Being A Christian myself, we are taught that “There is nothing too hard for God!” In......

W3A1 Review

...W3A1 Review Kristina Vis has analyzed radio commercials of Burger King – Crispy Bacon Cheeseburger, Verizon Wireless – Droid, and Shopping Center – Christmas Parking. Regarding the first advertisement, I agree with Kristina that the emphasis was made on the key descriptive words, which should provoke certain emotions and catch listeners’ attention, though too much emotion and woman’s laughter throughout the advertisements rather distracts the listeners from the product. In turn, I suppose that the age of the targeting group is narrower than 14-99, as the message of the advertisement is not directed on children and elder. Concerning the second advertisement, with sufficient clarity, Kristina has communicated her perceptions of the monotone voice and too much information provided in the record and I agree with her. Though, the emphasis is made on the energetic and even revolutionary music that appropriately creates the mood to the whole commercial and is directed predominantly on the male target group. In the third advertisement, analyzed by Cristina, the music, voice, and information are well matched and the advertisers got their point in a relatively small period of time. Though it is not based on a lot of facts, it is fun, informative, and amusing. Jeffrey Dela Cruz has analyzed radio advertisements of Coke Summer, Jimmy Johns and Motel 6 Super Bowl. With understanding and clarity, he has determined targeting groups, key words, and purpose in all the commercials. The......

The Overview of Capm

...attractive as a tool that measures risk to possible in relation to expected return, although it is still widely used for estimating the cost of capital for firms and evaluating the performance of managed portfolios. While CAPM is accepted academically, there is empirical evidence suggesting that the model is not as profound as it may have first appeared to be. CAPM’s empirical fallings arise theoretically from many over simplified assumptions made by the model. This has made it difficult to implement valid test for this model (Kristina Zucchi, 2015). For example according to the CAPM model the risk from an asset such as stock should be measured relative to a comprehensive, but this principle can include such as human capital not just financially traded assets. It is also unclear as to whether if we should narrow the scope of this to financially traded assets or expand this to include other financial instrument such as bonds, and other financial assets (Kristina Zucchi, 2015). CAPM follows assumptions such as all investors are risk averse by nature, Investors have the same time period to evaluate information, There is unlimited capital to borrow at the risk-free rate of return, Investments can be divided into unlimited pieces and sizes, There are no taxes, inflation or transactions cost. At first the reaction to these basic assumptions were that they seem to be incredibly unrealistic, critics asked how could the outcome from this theory hold any weight using these......
