Difficulty of Starting a Gun

Words: 2928 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 95175268

However, this is a common, recurrent theme that has been injected into the public sphere by private interests. As a result, it dominates a substantial amount of discourse in the public sphere, and even people like Griffin and ostron, who believe that it is demoralizing and misleading and state those beliefs publicly, have had little success in challenging this misconception. Therefore, to have a real gun control debate in the public sphere, it is necessary to investigate whether proposed gun control laws would have had an impact on some of these crimes. In the instances of these massacre-shootings, over and over again it appears that the gunmen purchased their weapons and ammunition legally, rather than going to illegal sources for their weapons. They were not prevented from doing so by current gun-laws, but many of them had behavioral flags that may have led to gun-restrictions under more exacting laws. For…… [Read More]

By positioning away from chicken restaurants, Chick-Fil -- a avoids direct comparisons with those restaurants but allows for direct comparison against burger joints.

In terms of strategic planning, the objectives of this ad campaign were most likely to raise awareness of Chick-Fil-a, to create interest in the brand and to improve both sales and market share. hen the outputs are concerned, the only reasonable conclusion is that the ads are successful. The ads stick in people's heads more than most fast food ads, and Chick-Fil -- a has become more successful since the campaign began. The campaign has been ongoing since the mid-1990s, indicating that the company's financial and market outcomes in that period have been positive, and that follow-up market research has indicated that the campaign has been part of that success.

System Thinking

Words: 698 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 19148977

System Issues & Chikfila

Systems thinking is a way of synthesizing the issues surrounding any organization in both a macro and micro manner. This allows more shared values through teamwork, mental paradigms, the ability to think in the future, and look at projects in a way that are best for the organization as a holistic entity. Thus, when the process of inquiry is moved from the individual and rote (only knowledge) to an organization that moves through different, more analytical modes of thinking, the individual involved are more active participants and there is a shared vision alone with a personal and team mastery of the question in point. This evolution engenders personal buy-in, a feeling of empowerment, and clearly a new way of processing disparate information (Senge, 2006).

TransCanada is fighting people that are worried more about aesthetics and ideals rather than benefits to the consumer (TransCanada, 2013).

3.2 The significance of organization to issue and vice versa (330 words)

In the end, the issue that faces TransCanada is selling the pipeline to the public effectively enough, as well as to the populations that can green-light the project, so that the project goes forward and thus allowing TransCanada to deliver oil more efficiently and quickly than is currently possible given the current oil transportation infrastructure that exists. This is especially true given the advent of oil sands and fracking in the United States as well as parts of Canada (Koring, 2013). The gist of the issue is that many people support the pipeline but some are concerned and many of the people that are averse to the project are politicians that are trying to push green energy and/or…… [Read More]

Small Business Is an Essential

Words: 2003 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 30395267

Venture capital is the money that businesses get from investors to start or continue a business. Ironically the advantages of a business plan are also correlated with some of the disadvantages of a business plan.

For instance, a book entitled Under the adar: Starting Your Net Business without Venture Capital, Venture capitalists often find that many business plans are too optimistic (Kling 2001). The book asserts that,

Trying to obtain venture capital funding without a business plan is like trying to get into college without filling out an application. Ironically, however, even venture capitalists are skeptical about business plans. Any venture capitalist will tell you that a first-rate team with a second-rate business plan is preferable to a second-rate team with a first-rate business plan. In fact, when I listen to venture capitalists describe how they make their decisions, the process often sounds highly intuitive and almost romantic -- like…… [Read More]

HR Retention Finding and Keeping the Right

Words: 2508 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 35947828

HR Retention

Finding and keeping the right employees are major problems especially to big businesses today, but the biggest headaches appear to confront the retail, food service (Catlette 2000) and the high-technology industries. The National Restaurant Association alone approximated the turnover among fast-food workers at 300% or so fast that by the time one gets his or her order of French fries, the worker might have made a change in his or her career (Catlette). Some Florida companies were reported to have taken bold steps at fighting off a 2.8% unemployment rate among hospitality workers in an attempt at insuring that breakfasts were cooked and served, beds made and park sideways swept. Disney was said to have gone as far as Puerto Rico offering airline tickets and bonuses for a year's contract as maids or food service workers (Catlette).

The most businesses hire workers-based competence and experience but values, style…… [Read More]

Leadership and Social Advocacy

Words: 5374 Length: 15 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 42281879

Social Advocacy in Counseling

Social advocacy has been described by some counseling theorists as a "fifth force" paradigm that should be considered to rival if not replace other major counseling psychology paradigms regarding behavior and mental illness (atts, 2009). This paper briefly discusses what social justice/advocacy is, the debate regarding its status as a paradigm in counseling psychology, and how social advocacy can enhance both the client's experience and life and the professional counselor's personal, professional, and ethical obligations to helping others.

Social Justice

Social justice is fairness or impartiality exercised in society, specifically as it is implemented by and within different levels of social classes of a society. A truly socially just populace would be based on the principles of solidarity and equality, would consider and maintain values, human rights, and the dignity of every person in the society (Bell, 1997). Social justice/advocacy theories have in recent years been…… [Read More]

Subway S Successes and Failures

Words: 619 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 22539402

Subway successful?

Subway is a relatively low-cost restaurant that provides a consistent product across its wide range of franchises. It has a franchise-only system, further adding to the homogeneity of its product regardless of where the customer is dining.

It offered many low-calorie, low-fat, and vegetarian items long before such items were fashionable, adding to its credibility in this area.

Since virtually everyone eats sandwiches and salads, the franchise has a wide appeal.

Sandwiches are made-to-order in front of the customer, further adding to its credibility of health and freshness.

Although it offers a standardized menu, it has been flexible enough to adapt it to the needs of international organizations. In 2011, Subway could boast that it had expanded into 98 countries with "one store for every 200,000 people in the world" (Smith, 2011, p.1).

Subway opened in many non-traditional outlets such as Wal-Mart, capitalizing upon the lack of competition…… [Read More]
