Ad From the 2011 Super

Words: 973 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 31154013

This leads to psychological tactics being used between owners and customers. During the slowing economy, everyone wants to earn more and save more. Owners should take care to make the customers feel that they are valuable and that the services owners provide are wanted so that customers are willing to go out to eat and spend money. The rising cost of food can destroy a business if not properly handled.

Businesses can do promotions in order to encourage customers. For example, if a customer spends $10, they get $1 off coupon for the next time. When they come in next time, it is helping to encourage a next time. Customers come again because they want to save money and the customer helps them do that. Another way is to run promotions around holidays and have discounted meals or specials. They could do this on days like Valentine's Day or Christmas.…… [Read More]

super bowl commercials that came out this year and how they targeted different genders. It discusses the role of social media like twitter and websites in speaking out against these ads and criticizing them. The paper lays emphasis on how many companies target certain genders or stereotypes and eventually go on to incur a lot of damage due to the inappropriate advertisements.

The Go daddy commercial was yet another sexist addition to the super bowl line of commercials. Even though the add did manage to get the domain name a lot of business the next day, over all the company incurred a loss of more than seven million dollars for making the commercial (Grinberg, 2013) Surely enough, everyone is used to seeing the sexist commercials every now and then. Sexism and objectifying women has long been used as a media tactic. Apart from objectifying women, gender stereotyping and allotting certain…… [Read More]

his is because of the fact that Chrysler is now getting back its success, as well as because of the fact that the company now is becoming more and more known worldwide. he utilization of Clint Eastwood was also a stroke of genius. His voice is not only well-known but also authoritative and emotional in a way that only adds credibility to the brand.

he ethos here is thus found on two fronts: the subject of the commercial as well as the way in which it is delivered by Eastwood. When he speaks about Detroit, Eastwood utilizes personal as well-known anecdotes that the country can recognize and that can rally it towards a common goal. In fact, the word 'rally' and the phrase 'acted as one' is utilized many times, as Eastwood stresses, time and again his faith in the strength of the country, as well as its ability to…… [Read More]

The commercial, in my view, is quite successful. This is because it makes use of fantastic appeals processes, especially pathos and ethos. Eastwood's voice also contributes to this feeling, as it is the perfect voice to deliver a message of hope and of togetherness. One needs only watch this ad to feel truly that Chrysler can come back, and can make a difference in America. And one can also feel that the overall message of hope will truly be true, as America will get back on its feet and will truly overcome the current economic crisis.

Because of the highly controversy own nature of politics in the United States today, this will be a calculated effort. Undoubtedly, there will be issues with law enforcement dealing with protesters.

Bob Hayes -- Sports Hero

One of my all-time inspirational heroes is Bob Hayes, known as the only athlete to win a gold medal in the Olympics and also a Super Bowl ring. Hayes as a young man with a great deal of athletic talent grew up in a segregated community in Jacksonville, Florida, but he went on to dazzle the world with his accomplishments. This paper details that rise to fame.

Bob Hayes struggled from childhood on to become what he knew he could become, and his career should serve as a positive role model for any young man caught in a socioeconomically underserved neighborhood with odds against him because of the color of his skin and because of racial stereotyping.

Weathertech Company

Words: 515 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97149802

Acquiring WeatherTech

WeatherTech is a strong American company with obvious potential for tremendous growth in one of the strongest sectors of the American consumer market: namely, automotive products. More specifically, WeatherTech would be a safe investment for the following reasons:

The company simultaneously caters to one of the strongest consumer markets but is less directly susceptible to economic downturns than are companies that actually manufacture and sell automobiles. pecifically, the American automobile manufacturing sector has traditionally been one of the strongest sectors in American business. Nevertheless, as became apparent during the recent economic recession, consumer spending on automobiles is susceptible to macro-economic variables and fluctuation in the strength of the national economy. Because the company does not actually manufacture automobiles but produces products that are in demand by both new truck purchasers and consumers wishing to extend the working life and quality of their older trucks, the company is much…… [Read More]

This is, to me, a more egregious crime than the act of aborting.

Therefore, you and Pat make many valid points in supporting the right for the advertisement to be run on television -- and in supporting the content of the ad as well. There is nothing inherently harmful in the Tim Tebow ad.

or is there? eighing both sides, I have evaluated the controversy of the advertisement and came up with several reasons why some Americans might find it to be offensive. I won't generalize and call the opposition "the left," because I believe political beliefs are far too complex to be categorized easily. There are several issues at stake with the ad, which make the ad controversial.

First, the advertisement's greatest strength is its greatest weakness. In being subtle about its true purpose, the advertisement is sneaky. Sure, the ad is not controversial on the surface. That's why…… [Read More]

Their activities and support of the foundation; enable the league to demonstrate a higher purpose which is of greater social value. (Ferriter)

In the majority of cases, the NFL is using the various high profile marketing events to illustrate the importance of sports in promoting various charity related events. The Super Bowl is the biggest event with it using the game as an avenue to help the community which is hosting it. At the same time, it is an avenue for helping to promote social responsibility. Evidence of this can be seen with Babiak & olfe (2006) saying, "The NFL is becoming progressively more invested in corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives in an effort to establish itself as a socially conscious organization, one based on the twin pillars of football and the community. As the proverbial jewel in the NFL's crown, the Super Bowl is an institution composed of many…… [Read More]

The Soda Wars: Analyzing Messages in Advertising

The battle between two soda giants, Coca-Cola and Pepsi, has been raging for many years. Both products are hugely successful, with world-wide brands and a wide array of products beyond their titular sodas. Similarly, their advertising campaigns and the competition that ensues (especially during big advertising events like the Super Bowl) is legendary. Both have recently unveiled several new campaigns that are worthy of analysis. Pepsi launched the "efresh Project," aimed at encouraging civic participation and charitable endeavors. They also released a more conventional Superbowl commercial. Coke has a new campaign called "Stay Extraordinary" and also, naturally, created some one-off Super Bowl advertising. While Pepsi's charitable aims are admirable, Coke provides more compelling, innovative, and amusing content…… [Read More]

Why Is Emmitt Smith Important to Our Culture

Words: 3449 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 4441398

Emmitt Smith

(Schwartz)

I have been a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys and especially Emmitt Smith for many years. For example, one of the most difficult moments in my appreciation of sports occurred when the Dallas Cowboys released Smith and he ended up on a lackluster Arizona Cardinals. This was after he had just surpassed the late great alter Payton to become the number one rushing running back in the history of the National Football League. "They are the two most punitive judgments that can be handed down for a running back: Too small, too slow. And yet that was the harsh assessment of Emmitt Smith, 5-foot-9 and 199 pounds, by the pro-scouts although he was an All-American at Florida. That same Emmitt Smith who skittered and stutter-stepped his way past the NFL rushing record held by his idol, alter Payton, and finished with 18,355 yards." (Schwartz) There are…… [Read More]

Television Ratings Are Most Frequently

(eilly, 1980) The program had the highest per episode viewer ratings of any before it and the plot has been called "the shot cheered round the world." (eilly, 1980) Another great example is the M.A.S.H. season finale, as the program held a huge record for most viewers of any finale in television history and the viewership record has served as an enduring benchmark in television until the Super Bowl XLIV, in 2010, when the battered city of New Orleans LA sent the Saints to the super bowl and the whole nation was rooting for triumph for the city, and the team. Many contend that the viewership rating was skewed in large part due to the expansion of the Nielsen system as well as the vast number of televisions in homes today, as compared to the M.A.S.H. finale in 1983. According to the record the M.A.S.H. finale had 105.97 estimated viewers…… [Read More]

It is targeting a young market because older people know a vicious blow to Roseanne Barr like that (with the full force of tons of wood) would kill her.

Suddenly the camera switches to Roseanne Barr, standing 20 feet away from the two men. Wearing a dressy jacket and holding a smaller chainsaw, she yells, "Hey, my back hurts." A millisecond later, a huge tree log swings from stage right and hits Barr very hard, knocking her flat on the ground. Undaunted and apparently unhurt, but dirty, Barr, from a position lying on her back, says, "Now my front hurts!" The ad closes with all brown frame and the words, "You're not you when you're hungry." And then the candy bar is shown quickly, breaking in half and a voice says, "Snickers satisfies."

The ad communicates the product, but as to the benefits -- what are the benefits of eating a candy bar? Nutrition? Not really. it's a clever ploy to get people to eat one between meals. Does it differentiate the product from the competition? Snickers is the only candy bar that uses comedy and some violence to appeal to consumers -- young consumers, to be sure. It is targeting a young market because older people know a vicious blow to Roseanne Barr like that (with the full force of tons of wood) would kill her. It could be redesigned to not be so brutally violent at the end, but the ad company placed this in the Super Bowl so they must believe the appeal will be pretty much across the board. But personally I'm negative towards using violence (even make believe) to sell a candy bar. It is attention getting and that is what the sponsor is aiming for.

Writing in the Journal of Sport Management (peer-reviewed) professor Scott Kelley's research of the content of Super Bowls (1996-2002) shows that "higher levels of affect are associated with advertising goods rather than services" (Kelley, et al., 2004, p. 398). In fact Kelley's study shows that the most effective strategies for Super Bowl advertisers include: a) using "emotional appeals"; b) "avoiding straight announcements…"; and c) "not making quality claims." Snickers qualified on "b" and "c" -- and on "a" too if humor and violence are considered emotional appeals. Sam Westmorland, writing in the Bleacher Report, explains that it's a "hilarious commercial" and has the possibility of giving a "jump start" to Lewis' and Barr's careers. Conclusion: If I was to revise the commercial, I would have the massive swinging log barely miss Barr, knocking her back to avoid being slammed. She still hits it the dirt and gets messy with a shocked face. She would say, from her back, "Now it hurts even more."

communication through various advertising techniques. The writer explores newspapers, advertisements, direct mail, ecommerce and other methods of attempting to reach the potential consumer. The writer uses 12 sources to complete the paper.

The development and sustaining of any company that offers products or services is heavily dependent on its ability to market and advertise. The use of advertising to communicate messages to the consumer is not a new concept. It is something that has been used for many years to entice the consumer into purchase. Communication through the use of advertising is not a new concept but there are several relatively new approaches being used today.

Many years ago before there was electricity or television there was only one way for a business to advertise and that was through print advertisements. Print ads included things such as posters, newspaper ads and magazine publications. Print ads often contained pictures of the…… [Read More]

American Sports of NFL and NBA and Their Influence in Popular Culture

Words: 2030 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 70386722

ports and popular culture (NFL/NBA)

Prelude

Pop Culture

Popular culture entails all forms of mass communication such as:

Newspapers

Radio

Magazines

Music

Books and Cartoons and comics

Advertising

It is somewhat different compared to higher forms of cultural art such as:

Classical music

Artworks

Conventional theatre

In terms of mass communication, popular culture means messages which are intellectually and artistically limited primarily designed to entertain and humor the viewers (Hollander, 2014). Following the industrial revolution, the people had a lot of time to spare which led to a huge demand for entertainment and amusement and gave height to media. The increasing supply of goods also made it necessary for the advertisers to attract the consumers and mass media could reach a large number of audiences at the same time (Hollander, 2014).

Sports have played a huge role in the American society on the whole as they have become a necessary part of the popular culture. American football is quite a popular game which brings NFL (National Football League) in limelight. NFL is same to same as other sports have an off season too when they are on a season break. Leagues such as NBA (National Basketball Association), MLB (Major League Baseball) and NHL (National Hockey League) follow the same pattern which builds the hype for them (Lee, 2012). It enables the public to forget all about sports for a while until it swings back in action again. The off season usually consists of training sessions, gym, trading players, NFL Combine and NFL Draft. These activities are heavily kept watch of by loyal fans followed by intense discussions (House, 2012).

Super Bowl is intensely popular in United States. Even the non-followers are somehow influenced by it as they hear news about it or by viewing it. The news channels mention regularly and social media is definitely on fire with news and updates. A famous band plays during halftime while a draw exists for watching the advertisements during the game and halftime (Lee, 2012). Companies are compelled to dish out loads of cash to display advertise themselves as the Super Bowl progresses. These ads are usually creative and funny and sometimes mixed. People for the sake of fun choose a particular team and cheer it till the end or otherwise friends pick a team and contend that it will win the title. It's sort of a public gathering event where food is enjoyed and drinks are taken in huge quantities. Tostitos and Doritos are chips found mostly at super Bowl parties while in case of drinks Coke, Pepsi and Budweiser. For the sports fans, it's their day off as they spend the entire day in front of a TV or mocking the opponent's team for fun. TV shows often give reference to Super Bowl just as Christmas and Halloween. Betting on a high level is also involved for the winning team, people are cut some slack from office, schools and colleges as it's the biggest event of the year (Hollander, 2014).

As previously mentioned, commoditization is ultimately very negative in a 400-channel universe, and the challenge we face is how to balance the need for revenue and viewers to ensure the long-run success of our sport. In theory, greater revenues are available from cable television, which is both advertiser and subscriber supported, than from broadcast television, which…… [Read More]

Words: 779 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 92971226

Today, when they go out to eat it is not unusual for the Warners to pay for the meal of another family in a restaurant, to show their seven young children the value of charity (Battista 2010). Warner has also unapologetically proclaimed his devout Christian faith throughout his long career, crediting God with his success. This has earned him the respect of even his non-believing teammates.

Brenda, a former Marine, is known for being a strict yet loving parent. The Warners are determined to instill humble Midwestern values in their children: one reason that Warner's faith is accorded such respect is because of his sincerity and lack of hypocrisy. Before every meal, the family prays, and children must obey certain rules such as "after ordering at a restaurant, be able to tell Mom the server's eye color," and "throw away your trash at the movie theater and stack plates for…… [Read More]

The governments of China clearly believe that if they do not ban shows where the premise is based on the voting then it could lead their citizens to want the right to vote in the government on their own opinions. The influence that television has, in this case by indirectly helping Chinese citizens move in the direction of being slightly more "democratic," is seen as a threat- it is hard to believe that television could threaten the national security of a world super power.

The current influence that television has on individual's lives is only growing stronger as technology continues to develop. Recent developments have shown that television will now be in "three-dimensions," so that individuals who view TV can be full immersed in the movie or show they are watching ("ho Needs It"). But is that even necessary when nine out of ten homes have televisions in their homes…… [Read More]

Among the various prime-time offerings there is a hospital drama, ER, which happens to be one of that network's longest-running dramas and focuses on an emergency room in an urban area. Furthermore, not only does ER feature many non-white cast members, but it portrays minorities in positions of power. It features African-American, Indian, Croatian, and lesbian doctors. In fact, one of the more recent storylines centered on an interracial romantic relationship. Obviously, this program is not geared to appeal towards only white upper-class Americans. On another night, the main prime-time drama centers on a medium that helps solve crimes. Although the medium is portrayed by a white woman, and comes from an upper-middle class background, her boss is Hispanic.

The comedies offered by the network also fail to show a white upper-middle class heterosexual dominance. The days of dominance by comedies like Friends or Seinfeld, which portrayed New York as…… [Read More]

The majority opinion would be written by the historically conservative
Justice Scalia. His response is characterized by Stout (2009), who reports
that "in layman's terms, 'arbitrary and capricious' action by a lower court
or an agency means the action was totally unreasonable and in disregard of
the facts. Justice Scalia wrote that the F.C.C. has the power under law to
turn to more aggressive enforcement, if it wishes, and that it need not
present empirical evidence of harm done to children by over-the-air dirty
language. Indeed, he wrote, such empirical evidence is unattainable in any
event." (Stout, 1) This sites the one aspect of the FCC approach that may
be characterized as positive, which is that it awards it sufficient power
to restrain broadcasting excesses.

"The rumor claiming that the commercial almost never aired is true," said Clow (www.ciadvertising.com).The Apple board "demanded that it not be aired," Clow goes on, but Apple CEO Steve Jobs insisted that it be played, and so it was. Clow says that this commercial wasn't just a parody of Nineteen Eighty-Four; "one could almost interpret this commercial as a bleak commentary on society," he writes. It shocked the "PC world into paying a little more attention to their competitors in their field," Clow asserts.

In conclusion, TV Guide called the Apple commercial "the greatest commercial of all time," according to CNN. And while Orwell's book isn't the greatest by any means, it has created an endless number of allusions and references, including the phrase "Big Brother," who, unfortunately, is with us today far more than most of us probably realize.

Relation of Game Theory and Gambling

Words: 2804 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 53212179

Game theory is a critical form of decision making that is used in various subjects like economy and political science. Its relevance is becoming prominent in the success rates that have come out in gambling and sports betting. The theory is basically an amalgamation of different models of cooperation and conflict between various decision makers (Myerson, 1991) Thus, it can be safely stated that the theory itself is not just one piece of information solidly put out there yet it's a combination of different authors and experts. As mentioned earlier, the game theory has been linked to economic models, science, gambling like poker or sports betting and social situations as well. In the game theory the simplest way of putting it is analyzing the number of players and the moves that they are likely to take. Using this information, a person can guess and figure out the number of choices…… [Read More]

Words: 1039 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 42916822

Vizio sells voice-activated televisions, and needs a marketing plan. The product is not a game-changer, so the company needs to have a message that emphasizes total value over gimmick novelty, if it actually intends to sell the sets. People buy televisions because of picture/sound quality, then price, and then other features, in order of importance (Katzmaier, 2013). The marketing plan needs to recognize this -- focusing on voice activation will get the company nowhere if the picture or value are poor.

The first part of the marketing plan is the place strategy. Vizio needs to sell its televisions in the places where consumers go to buy televisions -- no other approach makes any sense at all. Vizio therefore needs to look at both online and offline channels. There is significant overlap since most retailers utilize both channels. Key retailers of televisions are Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Costco and Amazon. Vizio…… [Read More]

Media Advertising: Posting an Ad on Facebook

Social media advertising provides a great platform for enhancing a brand message's reach and influencing prospects at the buying cycle's middle-of-the-funnel or evaluation stage. Facebook presents a unique marketing plan for advertisers; one that entirely focuses on middle-of-the-funnel offers as a way of influencing buyer decisions. This is quite logical since it is at the evaluation stage that a buyer i) clarifies exactly what they need, and then embarks on the search for a satisfying provider, and ii) is most likely to share information through their established network though a 'like' (Social Media Today, 2013).

In order to take advantage of this aspect, Sushi Fashions, a dealer in ladies wear, handbags and accessories intends to put up an ad regarding its Super Bowl sale, in which buyers could get up to 50% off on the conventional prices - over the entire product range.…… [Read More]

This paper will outline Sanford's political career, with particular emphasis on the scandal, Sanford's response and where he stands today with respect to his career.

The Relationship Between Dance and Politics

Words: 1039 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97980867

art form, dance provides the means by which to fuse political and creative power. The body can communicate political ideology, subverting social norms in subtle ways. Dance frequently communicates issues related to race, class, gender, and power. Dance can also be used to either reflect or change values and norms.

For example, ballet was born in the Baroque court of Catherine de Medici, who recognized the potential for dance to symbolize the bringing about of order in a chaotic world ("Baroque Court: Catherine de Medici"). A similar function of dance can be found among the Bedoyo of Java, for whom dance undertook a cosmological as well as a political pertinence: creating or exhibiting order in a world that was otherwise chaotic or unpredictable. Dance reveals the potential for human beings to be disciplined and use their bodies to create order, as opposed to allowing themselves to slip into temptation. In…… [Read More]

In the late 1960s, the clean-up of Pioneer Square began, as buildings were renovated and artists, architects, interior designers who "liked the aesthetics of the old buildings" (Morley, 75) - along with young professionals who prized the proximity to downtown - began moving in.

By 1975, about $10 million ($8 million from private investors) had gone into Pioneer Square's redevelopment, but prior to that, there had been a political battle overcome before Pioneer Square could become the wonderful venue it is now; urban sprawl and shopping centers had taken precedence over historic preservation and the King…… [Read More]

Bargaining power of customers: Our main question here is whether al-Mart customers can walk away from buying a product at al-Mart and find it cheaper elsewhere. For the most part, the answer is no. al-Mart has built its reputation by providing products at a considerably lower price than its competitors (Is al-Mart good, 2005). Certainly, customers can try to find lower prices at other retailers; and the proliferation of the Internet also allows customers to visit several e-commerce retailers. However, al-Mart's ability to keep prices at rock-bottom, coupled with the fact that it has such dominant market share in America, means that the bargaining power of customers has been trending downward.

Why Did the Dot Com Industry Crashed After the Boom

Words: 11033 Length: 40 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 10104395

Com industry crash after the boom

This is a paper examining some of the factors that caused the dot-com crash

Many believe the root cause of the dot-com crash was over valuation of stock prices relative to the actual underlying value of the companies themselves. Stocks of Internet companies traded at Price-Earning ratios of higher then 30, buoyed by a speculative bubble. When reality set in for investors many realized that the companies that they were so heavily invested in were little more then money sucking black holes with no upside potential in the near or long-term future. This triggered mass self-offs of not only Internet related stocks but soon impacted the market value of many companies associated with computer, network or telecommunications industries.

This paper will show in fact that over valuation was more a symptom of the speculative boom and was only one of the multifaceted factors that…… [Read More]

Shipman Is Wrong the Author

Words: 707 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 2922507



hat this author disagrees with Shipman upon is the issue of hominids being exclusively hand-graspers while apes are necessarily foot graspers. A couple of common observations would indicate that this is based upon circular reasoning. e say apes must be foot graspers, therefore this is holy writ. The issue that this author raises is proven by anyone that has seen apes throw feces or garbage at the zoo bar cages or seen humans without hands trained to manipulate their feet in hand-like ways. Certainly, the issues of bipedalism and hand and foot grasping and manipulation are more complicated and were probably due to environmental issues. Until we know who the ancestor was and where they were from in Africa will we be absolutely certain if the transition to a savannah type of existence to a forest type of existence is absolutely correct. For this reason, examples that she gives such…… [Read More]

Iced Tea Marketing in the

Words: 1838 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 978815

Traditional manufacturing industries are at a loss due to the trade deficit and many setbacks the whole nation has faced. Consumers are very dependent on debt due to re-mortgaging the properties to attain higher loans. Due to the sub-prime market fall, the services sector is likely to suffer a lot. A significant amount of people are without pensions or health insurance. The housing and mortgage markets are still in crisis. Consumers are paying more for the basic necessities such as food, fuel, medical care, college tuition etc. (Hunkar, D. 2009).

To recap, the number one market for Shin Shii tea outside Taiwan would be the United States. Certainly, it can be argued that possibility is there. This would be the best indication that the company should definitely choose a global approach to marketing, rather than localization. The U.S. is also the safest market to start. In addition, due to globalization,…… [Read More]

Human Resources in the Internet

Words: 1455 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 51291525

In that regard, Human Resources managers have discovered that online networks can help establish unity among employees working much too remotely from other employees to establish any kind of rapport or shared corporate culture through traditional means. Another advantage of this use of online social networks has been their ability to facilitate greater connections among and between groups of employees from different places of origin, backgrounds, and age.

There are also risks associated with the use of existing social networks such as MySpace and FaceBook that HR managers have also had to consider. Specifically, they do present the possible risk of leaking of proprietary information; they can result in damaging statements by firm employees with legal liability on the part of the company; and they can expose valued employees to being "poached" by external recruiters known as "head hunters." Consequently, some companies have embraced the concept of incorporating online social…… [Read More]

Another use for online social networking in recruiting has been the establishment of professional discussion groups and forums, such as those intended to promote meaningful discussions among members of given fields of employment, such as HR professionals, for example. There does seem to be a potential in this application of online social networks, but some of those efforts have not yielded the productive results hoped for when they were first created. Some of those involved in establishing those kinds of professional networks have discovered that many more people sign up initially than actually participate once their memberships are active. Typically, email updates from those networks are ignored or deleted as spam and some of those who sign up rarely visit or contribute to them thereafter.

Consequently, some organizers of these networks have begun shifting away from the forum-type of networks in favor of using Twitter for similar purposes. So far, they have experienced limited success and they have discovered that there is a definite art to the productive use of Twitter for this purpose as well. For one example, effective use of Twitter requires a commitment to very regular updates. For another example, it has become obvious that certain types of social networks (such as FaceBook) are best for maintaining contact with undergraduates whereas Twitter is preferable for maintaining contact with fellow HR professionals already working in the field who may have less time for FaceBook and MySpace-types of social networks because of their work commitments.

Got Milk Abstract

Motivation -- There is nothing like a good television commercial to make one's day. Some are funny and some can make you sing or dance and the really good ones; well, they can make you laugh and more importantly, they can actually create a need to buy the product that they are advertising. This is also a world of big business. The Super Bowl, for example, charges millions of dollars each year for each 30 second commercial spot. One would think that everyone wants their 'fifteen minutes of fame' so television and radio ads seem like an excellent opportunity to go out and get that fame. That is, unless you are being forced to pay for an ad that you may or may not want to be in. Or worse, what if you were legally mandated to pay for a particular advertising campaign or risk fines…… [Read More]

Through acquisitions of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Good Humor-Breyers Ice Cream, the company has grown to dominate the entire frozen desserts market within the U.S. And has a significant share globally as well. All of these competitors however have taken the traditional approach to frozen yogurt, offering only a very limited set of flavors, most often the most popular in their other products to save on costs. There is no product development occurring in any of these companies with regard to developing high energy frozen yogurt for customers to impulse purchase and take with them. Impulse purchasing accounts for 14% of total yearly sales in 2008 and is expected to increase in 2009 as companies seek to create greater levels of buyer activity based on price and availability, looking to overcome the perception of ice cream as a luxury (Gloria, 2008). The competitive landscape of frozen yogurt…… [Read More]

Digital vs. Film Cameras:

Capturing memories is an important task for many people. Whether it's holidays, special occasions, or just pictures of a random slice of life, recording these precious moments for all time is common in many households. As technology has advanced, new options for taking photos has entered the marketplace, in just the last twenty years -- digital cameras. There are a variety of reasons why digital cameras are far superior to their film predecessors including: convenience, cost, and storage.

Digital cameras are far more convenient and offer more flexibility than film cameras. With digital cameras, the user can immediately see the images they just captured on the screen. This preview image can not only be shown to others, but the photographer can decide if they captured the image they wanted and retake the photo if necessary. In contrast, using a film camera not only means the photographer…… [Read More]

hat are some of the financial issues that are unique to online monetary transactions?

Safety and security are two primary concerns for consumers buying online, as it is inconvenient to use checks or wire cash online. Using PayPal is one option, but most consumers chose to pay through their credit cards and want some assurance that their numbers are not accessible to illegitimate third parties. Similarly, consumers who access their bank accounts online want to make sure that they and they alone can see the records, and there are some controls to verify their identity. Other concerns for sites like eBay, where sellers are individuals and not reputable corporations, include the fact that the buyers may want to return their merchandise and cancel payment if the goods do not match the product description. (This is the reason for eBay's 'rating' of user reliability). Sellers from all websites want assurance…… [Read More]

Conclusion:

Professional football is, by all accounts, a violent sport whose participants frequently suffer significant physical injuries on the playing field. Because of the nature, frequency, and intensity of the collisions inherent to the game, especially at the professional level, the effects of football injuries often persist long after retirement. Most insidious are the cumulative effects of repeated cerebral concussions, only recently identified as a specific injury…… [Read More]

Secret Service Protection for Presidents

Words: 2518 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 19669254



Clearly the Secret Service is expanding it's investigative arm; in 2010 the Service established it's second overseas Electronic Crimes Task Force (ECTF), this one in London (in 2009 the Service established an ECTF in Rome, Italy). The point of the ECTF is to provide an avenue through which European and American law enforcement agencies -- along with private sector and academia -- can work together to investigate, suppress and prevent computer-related criminal activity (USSS).

Again and again in the 72-page Fiscal Year 2010 Report readers are reminded of one of the main missions of the Secret Service -- to hunt down and arrest counterfeiters. In 2010 the Secret Service -- along with local authorities -- arrested four Colombian counterfeiters (in Bogota Colombia) that had been printing U.S. currency and distributing it in the United States. Columbia is one of the most prolific producers of counterfeit American money, the report explains,…… [Read More]

Consumer decision-making is a process that often involves the word-of-mouth testament of a product or service where the opinion from the use of a consumer is favourable. The process seductively involves the product marketing team's portrayal to the consumer of the brand appeal and in-store value against the competitor. The consumer choice is ostensibly immense in the global market. Stores that range the spectrum of offerings, from specialty goods stores to large supermarkets and to stores such as Costco, Wal-Mart and the Dollar Store, consumers have a cornucopia of choice available.

Low-hanging fruit

One current trend in the food industry is that of highly decadent, 'over the top' burgers. Burgers have become prominent at both the high end and the low end of the food industry, penetrating such segments as Chef Daniel Bouloud's famous restaurant in the form of a truffle oil-infused burger, and the Shake Shack in New York City, where tourists wait for hours for a premium 'fast slow food' burger in Central Park (Dickler 2007). Burger King and Wendy's have featured numerous triple-patty, bacon-stacked creations.

To pick off such 'low hanging fruit,' the pizza company Papa John could offer its own 'hamburger special,' featuring bacon, chopped up tomatoes, and hamburger meat…… [Read More]
