Words: 488 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 81225774

Breakfast Club

The essay will then discuss the potential impact that these issues may have on society.

Kellogg's Company

Words: 1961 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 86740188

reakfast is considered the important meal of the day. It is a good, nutritional start for the rest of the day. The metabolism of the human body is at its peak from morning to noon. More energy is required during this period. Nutritionists believe that breakfast should be the heaviest meal of the day. And meals should become smaller as the day progresses. Cereal is a good source of carbohydrates -- the body's primary fuel-source. When the body does not get enough carbohydrates, it scavenges muscles for fuel. This leads to a toxic condition known as ketosis.

In this day of hectic time-schedules and careers, a mother's access to a quick and healthy diet is essential. Cold cereals are healthy. They are quick and easy to prepare. They often provide both carbohydrates (from the cereal) and protein (from the milk) -- essential components for the body. Many recent studies have…… [Read More]

Competencies of a Successful Bed

Words: 3638 Length: 13 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97963380

Return guests comprise approximately 15% of bed and breakfast guests with another 15% of guests being individuals who have been referred by former guests of the bed and breakfast. Therefore, it can be understood that "quality of stay and customer satisfaction" are both important factors in the decision making process of the guest when choosing to stay at the bed and breakfast as compared to staying at another establishment. Qualities of the room that contribute to the overall satisfaction of guests include the following:

Mattress and pillow quality - 88%

Towels - 84%

Linens - 82%

Washcloths - 75%

Glasses - 62%

Reading lights - 61%

Soap - 50%

Luther Burbank School District Case

Words: 1576 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 96236112



This analysis only represents break-even analysis. If the school wishes to make profits, it can increase prices to accommodate this factor, However, the caveat in this move is that as prices go up, the number of prices sold may go down (Cebrzynski, 2008). Therefore, further studies, will have to be conducted to determine the price elasticity of the students within the school. In this case, supply is constant, therefore the only two factors that can change are price and demand. This program is expected to be highly dependent upon price factors.

There are several factors that may affect the accuracy of the information used for this analysis. The first is that the actual school budget is not available, Therefore, representative figures had to be obtained from other sources. Prices may differ from state to state, which could affect the results of this study. However, even if the numbers changed by…… [Read More]

Maintaining the environmental and social qualities that currently exist in Watch Hill and the surrounding landscape are definitely in the interests of the project's success.

Closing

The project is expected to be a long-term endeavor, continuing under the same ownership and management for at least two decades if not longer. Closing is therefore not considered an essential item for the project at hand, though a commitment to excellent maintenance of the structure and grounds will be maintained in order to ensure a substantial resale value.

The only image from the time that we have of the original dress is in the film poster (Image 5), where one can see that the dress showed quite a big of leg, which was considered improper and that is why the film commissioned a tailor to sew up Givenchy's original design, as to not offend anybody in the audience. hat a pity, for today, the dress would perhaps be ever-more popular.

In the third image, however, which is the picture of the dress as seen at Christie's, one can see that one of the photos shows the dress with the slit. Yet this discussion of without or without the cut prompts the thought of the fact that these are two dresses, one created by Givenchy, and one a copy created by another designer, a 'knock-off' almost, that together with the original created a phenomenon of epic proportions.

Adolescent Development in the Movie The Breakfast Club

The 1985 film The Breakfast Club, which was written and directed by John Hughes, presents an ideal opportunity to study and psychoanalyze adolescent development. The film portrays five different teenage stereotypes (the jock, nerd, criminal, prom queen, and social outcast) which are consigned to detention in the library on a weekend day (Tanen & Hughes, 1985). As the teenagers gradually get to know each other and interact amongst themselves, they reveal crucial causes and effects of some basic psychological principles related to the development of adolescents. They share a number of problems in common including an almost universal sense of alienation from their parents and from adults in general. As such, there are several psychological theories that apply to them, including, most eminently, Erickson's stages of development.

Erickson's stages of development are predicated by some basic facts of what is known as…… [Read More]

Furthermore, the researcher could explore the frequency of purchase, consumption, budget, and usual places where the mother purchases the product. Also, the exploratory discussion could lead to other dimensions and information about breakfast cereal purchase and consumption that were not identified in previous studies. Similarly, in IDIs, concepts that will be explored and discovered during the one-on-one interview could be developed into variables for the survey. For concepts identified in FGDs and IDIs, they will be used as variables for the survey, and will be tested during the analysis stage for validity and reliability.

Another proposed approach is through an ethnographic study. Similar to the qualitative methods, an ethnographic study would explore concepts that will be quantitatively tested for validity and reliability in the survey. In ethnographic studies, the researcher will observe and take note of the processes that take place in the target groups' natural environment. This could be…… [Read More]

Sustainability in Iceland

It is essential that modern businesses of all sizes focus on putting the planet into the bottom line. An article from The Economist suggests that all businesses, including small businesses like the bed-and-breakfast, should focus on implementing a triple bottom line. The first two are more traditional, with the first being profit or the bottom line of the profit and loss measurements. The second is people, thus being able to be socially responsible and take care of not only the organization of society as a whole. According to this article, "The third is the bottom line of the company's "planet" account -- a measure of how environmentally responsible it has been" (The Economist, 2009). The idea here is that we must take into account our environmental impact within our balance scorecard and other business operational practices.

How Kellogg's Uses Marketing Effectively

Kellogg's Case Study

Q1.Define communication.

Communication is defined as "the transmission of information from a sender to a receiver, via a given medium. Two-way communication involves some kind of feedback from the receiver back to the sender" (Communication 2).

Q2.Describe the key stages in the communication process. You can use a diagram to show the process

The communications process involves a sender encoding a message and transmitting the message through a particular medium. The message is then decoded by the recipient who gives a response in the form of feedback (Kellogg's 2).

What is meant by internal communication? Please give an example.

Internal communication "occurs within the firm e.g. between the marketing and finance departments" (Communication 6). Mass emails sent to all employees about a change in vacation policy or emails sent between members of a corporate work team are both examples of internal communications.

Marketing Management - Use of 3 -- Circle Model

Marketing Management Using 3-Circle Method

The benefits of using the 3-Circle Model for evaluating a company, brand, or product are readily evident since the approach considers customer, company, and competitive aspects of the environment. While not customer-centric -- a view that would limit assessment -- the model does fold the consumer perspective into the evaluation. This is a different perspective than many strategic planning models which tend to focus primarily on the competitive environment. In this day and age, a considerable amount of power has shifted from companies to customers, enabling consumers to define the nature of the transaction in which they are willing to engage. For this reason, the customer circle is crucial to an assessment. The company circle is invaluable for determining how and where to locate assets to maintain and develop core competencies. Finally, the competitive circle utilizes…… [Read More]

Management Case Study

Scenario- We are an event management company. Our team has been asked to plan an event for 200 people in an outdoor "green" space. The event includes workshops, breakout meetings, breakfast and lunch.

Overall Task- Since the event has been requested in a "green" or outdoor space, the first consideration will be the venue and time of year. If the event is in a reasonable season (Mid-late Spring through Early -- Fall), it is likely we can find a venue that can accomplish this. The major consideration will be weather, specifically wind and rain, and proximity to back-up shelters if the need arises. The venue should include tents to cover areas for eating, and potentially meeting. Open air venues can also be problematical due to temperature fluctuations -- it is either too hot or too cold, and it is sometimes difficult to find a medium ground. In…… [Read More]

Yet the film ends on an optimistic, even triumphant note, with the raised hand of Bender symbolizing victory over the stereotypes subject to which the characters began the film.

Conclusion

The film "The Breakfast Club" contains myriad examples of group dynamics at play. Doing a close reading of the film was valuable in that it provided insight into how narratives can be shaped by psychological principles. In dissecting the actions of the film's principal characters, it became apparent that the filmmakers were not simply trying to create a plotline that would entertain a mass audience. The film also integrates psychological inquiry into its teenaged protagonists. Each character is given a back story which motivates his or her behavior and later undergoes a realization of his or her flaws in order to make a change. The film goes beyond just a high school narrative; it is about how to break free…… [Read More]

Over the next three years, KKD needs to first concentrate on competing more effectively in those regional markets where Dunkin' Donuts to this point has dominated the sale of donuts and related food and beverage items. This must begin with a build-out of the 22 Montana Mills stores in states where Dunkin' Donuts has the majority of market share, followed by selective expansion in western states including Arizona, Colorado, California, Nevada and Washington. The use of joint ventures, co-branding of retail locations, and private labeling needs to be aggressively used to penetrate the new markets in western states which have to date been unaddressed.

The Impact of a Borderless Society

Because of technology and the way in which society has evolved, people currently live in a world where there are virtually no geographic boundaries (Time, 2006). Goods and services can be transmitted anywhere, and people from all over the world can talk to one another via the internet and cell phones quickly and easily in real time. Even the food that is consumed by most people comes from places far away from them (Kloppenburg, et al., 1996). They have fresh fruit in cold weather areas of the United States in December, for example, and that fruit has to come from somewhere else. It is not possible to grow peaches in South Dakota in January, so there is no way that fruit is local. It had to be grown somewhere warm, picked, packed up, and shipped elsewhere.

The location of the launch of the bed & breakfast chain is Iceland. Iceland is a modern democracy with the capitalist economy. Tourism is a relatively minor sector of the Icelandic economy, but has been growing in importance in recent years (CIA World Factbook, 2014). Iceland's main draws are its natural scenery complete with volcanoes, mudfields and other geothermal wonders, as well as waterfalls and the city of eykjavik, which also draws significant tourist traffic.

A benefit corporation is a corporate form for-profit companies that have the purpose of creating a public benefit -- though they are for-profit entities. And LC3 is a low-profit limited liability company, another relatively new corporate form.

Healthy D

In our new, global society, consumers the world over are increasingly besieged with food choices. The advent of processed foods and diet have had a negative effect on the developed world, and as those products increase in the developing world, similar negatives occur in the health of many. Scholars are all in agreement that what humans consume has a clear link to the consequences of our overall health; particularly for children. Eating right involves two things: A balanced approach to nutrition and the proper mindset to use foods in a health manner (freshness, portion size, condiments, etc.). Despite the trend towards highly refined products with heavy sugar content, sugary sodas, and snack foods with high carbohydrates and low nutritional value, there are alternatives.

The issues have made General Mills and Kellogg's to increase the prices of their breakfast cereal products. The cause of an increase is due to a recent rise in the price of grains such as wheat and corn. Underpinning the rise in the price of grains is that the demand has outpaced the supply because of the growing demand for cereals for the production of biofuels such as ethanol. Thus, the author is trying to reveal the factors that lead to an increase in…… [Read More]

Employment Recommendation Letter to Whom

Words: 826 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 59999395

I was able to see the patience and love that Jane has extended to my children. She very patiently taught my youngest child all his shapes and colors during his eighteenth month.

Jane's effort in teaching my children was manifested in ways more than one. My middle child showed drastic improvements in her reading level. She even jumped two reading levels in just one year! My eldest daughter, on the other hand, was able to excel in soccer and in school as well. I must say that my children have become the well-adjust persons that they are now through Jane's help.

One of the best things that Jane did for my family, especially for my children was helping them during one of the toughest times of their lives. In 2006, my children lost their mother. Jane's presence got them through this grieving process. She was not just their nanny, nor…… [Read More]

Reagan & the 80s Movies

Words: 4752 Length: 17 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 87633231

Many young people voted for Reagan as he represented rebellion against the authority figures in society but was a rebellion characterized by valiance and effectuated through skillful communication. The approval rating of Reagan was approximately 42% when 1982 began but dropped to the record low 35% later that same year. The U.S. entered a recession. If one is to set their focus upon obtaining a chance at being the President of the United States, then that individual must take a political stance and hold a view that is somewhat differential from the opposing party. In the case of Ronald Reagan, who had been a democrat for most of his life, it was the democratic party that he must debate against in the attempt to establish a better public platform that the opposing candidate. Ronald Reagan may be viewed as a 'come-lately' at the time he entered the political scene at…… [Read More]

Borderless Society

Imagine finding out where one's food originated? Would someone continue to eat at the same location? How an individual go about eating what is available to a person locally or worldwide as a result of his or her research? Is globalization positive, negative or both? As a result of this study, one will decide how he or she will eat as a result of learning where food instigates.

For breakfast, one would have a banana, biscuit and gravy and orange juice. In regards to lunch, I had a quarter pounder cheeseburger, fries and sprite. The meat originates from Australia, New Zealand or the United States and it is frozen (McDonald's, 2011). In regards to the fries, they are from U.S. potatoes (Associated Press, 2009).

Market for Milk if More

Words: 1263 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 53892796

The total supply of milk might remain the same, because the remaining high-efficiency producers are likely to be able to earn profits at this level of output. In the long-run, however, lower prices are going to sustain the quantity of milk demanded at higher than equilibrium levels, and the profits available to producers at lower than equilibrium levels. Producers, in their efforts to control costs, are going to reach a point of diminishing returns on those efforts. The result of this is that the market for milk will eventually become so distorted by the price ceiling that the government is forced to raise the price ceiling in order to ensure that there are producers remaining in the market. The government will have created a situation where to simply maintain the milk market requires active management.

Leadership at Sea and Seven Habits of Highly Effective Sailors

The irony is unavoidable. I began reading Seven Habits of Highly Effective People when I was feeling at my least effective, personally, as a human being and as a child. I suppose I'm not alone in saying this, though. The fact of a parent's death makes every child feel ineffective, unable to cope with family grief and stress, as well as forced to face one's own mortality and "principles of personal vision." (1) The loss of a father makes it easy to lose one's sense of a future perspective, and the vision one has of one's self in a family and a societal context.

However, I was also, when I began the book, feeling quite ineffective as a leader as well. Because of my father's death in mid-August, I had to leave my ship and came home to tend to…… [Read More]

Wildlife Management There Are Abundant Pressures on

Words: 2229 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 52286911

Wildlife Management

There are abundant pressures on open land, from urban and suburban sprawl to the increase of factory farming. At the same time, it is being recognized that more and more species are being lost as land becomes less diversified and habitats are destroyed. In addition, life is becoming more stressful and people seek ways to engage in recreation for relief. There may be a way to combine more balanced land use with the need for human populations to engage in recreation, and to save significant portions of the natural world at the same time. These methods involved dual uses for open land, both agricultural and forest, and would benefit from additional support by governmental agencies.

Statement of the problem

In an era when it is more profitable to sell rural or close-in suburban land for development than to retain the land for farming or other uses, means must…… [Read More]

Adolescent Obesity in Saudi Arabia

Words: 3430 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 52239278



There are remedies (albeit not easy ones for the individuals involved), as suggested by the research. However, and this is very important, the current public health approaches that the Saudi government has taken, as Mabrey et al. (2010) note, have focused fairly narrowly on medical approaches. This focus includes research that has been conducted on metabolic syndrome (which is caused primarily by being overweight). This is caused by clear-cut factors and has a number of possible poor consequences.

Mabrey et al. (2010) note that metabolic syndrome is on average 10 to 15% higher in the GCC states than in the rest of world and that females are disproportionately affected by metabolic syndrome. These researchers are among those who note that a strictly medical approach to such medical problems is far from sufficient. For while metabolic syndrome itself can be identified and described in purely medical terms, such an approach does…… [Read More]

Scenario 1:

The main factor of the pathophysiology for Jennifer is a marked pain in her throat. Her throat has become sore, specifically her cervical nodes (which is a sign clearly indicative of disease). Thus it is difficult to eat, which explains why she neglected to eat her breakfast. Another capital aspect of Jennifer’s pathophysiology which is particularly revealing is her fever, which is common in children (de Pont, 2015, p. 2). Initially her fever was low grade. However, in just a matter of days it exceeded 103 degrees. Her body is attempting to counteract the effects of the malady afflicting it via the fever. One of the foremost associated alterations of her adaptive responses is the current state of her skin. Her skin is desiccated and warm, which is indicative of the fever the child has experienced over the past couple of days. Her skin will likely continue to…… [Read More]

breakfast "trumps" all other meals for the top spot."

It is widely believed that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The likelihood of children who always take breakfast having favorable nutrients like carbohydrates and fiber and less cholesterol and fat is higher than is the case among children who seldom take breakfast. Consuming breakfast is also linked to improved overall lifestyle. Children who do not have breakfast regularly report weaker cardiovascular fitness. These assumptions of the place of breakfast in the health of children are grounded on laboratory research. While the evidence is a bit mixed, available studies indicate that breakfast improves children's cognitive aptitude and performance, especially in the areas of attention and memory. Further, the effect having breakfast causes is more pronounced among undernourished children (Katie Adolphus, Clare L. & Lawton, Louse Dye, 2013).

The weaknesses of the company are first that it relies on just a few top customers for the majority of its revenue growth and its lack of product quality have at times led to recalls. Opportunities include the growing level of health consciousness in globally, higher levels of product demand in Latin America nations that today have relatively low levels of adoption today and the potential to grow through mergers and acquisitions (Kissas, 2007). The threats Kellogg's is facing include stringent regulations and a lack of strategies for managing foreign exchange risk. In addition there is intensive pricing pressure from competitors as well.

The importance of nutrients during adolescence

Adolescents in the contemporary society find it difficult to follow a strict set of rules and most are inclined to pay little to no attention to their health. Nutrition is a delicate topic when considering adolescents because many consider that their health status is not going to change in the future. The fact that overweight adolescents have come to represent an important problem in the present contributes to the gravity of this situation and it is thus essential for teenagers to have a complex understanding of the concept of nutrition.

The instant coffee, called Via, Starbuck's newest entry into supermarket-style purchases, is sold at its lowest price point, compared with its higher-end coffee ice creams and bottled Frappucinos and espresso shots. Despite initial criticism Via has kept the Starbucks name alive on store shelves and in consumer's minds who are not currently going to cafes, because these former patrons and Starbucks loyalists have lost their jobs or because their investments have been decimated.

The current policy of keeping the prices high for only some of more elite types of coffee and drinks secures another facet of Starbuck's complex image -- namely, that of a luxury brand, without pricing all consumers out of the market across the board.

As far as the decision to use penetration pricing or skimming pricing is concerned, Crispy Fruit should be emerged with the penetration pricing (Waterschoot & Bulte, 1992). That is; set a low price in the introductory stage then gradually increase it with the passage of time. It will help it to strengthen the customer base and increase the level of acceptability in the market (Waterschoot & Bulte, 1992). Price skimming should not be used in any case. This is because all the top competitors of Crispy Fruit are charging high price because they have a surety of a developed customer base. If Crispy Fruit charges a higher price than these competitors, no consumer will like to pick a new brand with a higher price in the presence of their favorite brand or brands (Waterschoot & Bulte, 1992).
