Voss Water International Marketing Plan for the Turkish Term Paper

… Voss Water

Today, Turkey is emerging as an increasingly important nation that serves as a bridge between the Middle East and the European Union and points beyond. Turkey's full membership in the European Union appears to be a matter of when rather than if, and the Turkish population has enjoyed the economic benefits of a secular state seeking to become a full partner in the international community. Cities such as Ankara and Istanbul are becoming a cosmopolitan amalgam of the best that Europe, the Middle East and Asia have to offer, and the growing Turkish middle class is eager to spend their discretionary income on Western goods that communicate good taste and top-notch quality as evidence of their new affluence. In this environment, there are…. [read more]


Jewish Identity Term Paper

… Jewish identity, or the way in which Jews perceive themselves and how others view them, has not been easy to answer for most parts of Jewish history. This is mainly because Jews are not easily categorized. They are not a race as they do not share a common ancestry and people of different races have become Jews over the years. They are neither a nationality, having been dispersed throughout the world for over two thousand years. Even as a religion, Judaism is not a pure religious faith like Christianity or Islam, since it has an ethnic dimension and it does not easily assimilate outsiders. However, exploring Jewish identity is a useful exercise as it gives us a deeper perspective on the Jewish people, their history…. [read more]


North American Women Continue Term Paper

… Many people want to feel good about how they look," says Dr. Erhardt. "People spend a lot of time through exercise, diet and skin care to attain a certain look, and plastic surgery has taken its place in the continuum of care people use, to maintain or enhance their appearance." Many women are the victims of these superficial plots and one can only hope that more women would ask themselves the question, "Why am I going through with these procedures?" before the surgery, and not after the damage has been done. Trouble occurs when women are looking for a quick fix to a problem that did not occur overnight. For example, a woman that enters a plastic surgeons office for whole body liposuctions addresses temporarily…. [read more]


Individual to Develop the First Language Research Paper

… ¶ … individual to develop the first language and roughly before reaching the puberty, and if development of first language does not occur when an individual has reached the puberty, it is unlikely that the development of first language will occur. There is a little doubt that young children have inherent ability to learn language quickly, and there is a widespread believe that younger children =better.

With reference to CPH, modern technique of magnetic imaging has revealed that there is a fundamental difference in the brain of young children and adolescent. The assumption is that young children have the capability to acquire first language very fast because they were born with special intuitive capacity for language. However, having reaching the puberty, the innate capacity begins…. [read more]


Sustainable Agricultural Practices in Emerging Nations Term Paper

… ¶ … Sustainable Agricultural Practices in Emerging Nations in General and China in Particular

Let trees sprout on the mountains; stop growing grain on hilly terrain; and keep livestock in their pens. - Chinese Edict for 21st Century Agricultural Practices, Chinese Premier Zhu Rongji, Spring 2000

In recent years, the rapid development of industrial and urban areas, and changes in agricultural practices, have resulted in environmental damage in many emerging countries, and China has been no exception (Cook & Murray 2002:154). In their haste to introduce market reforms and efficiencies into their antiquated agricultural systems, many of these emerging nations have sacrificed their environment and citizens' health in exchange for some well-intentioned but misguided short-term gains in productivity. Because China remains the most populous nation…. [read more]


Creating a Marketing Plan Marketing Plan

… Marketing Plan for La Duree

What business are you in?

What will be the 'next cupcake?' For many years, cupcakes were the great pastry craze, resulting in the rise of the Magnolia Bakery and Crumbs in New York City. These enterprises eventually spread throughout the United States. The cute confectionary took hold of the public's imagination. Around the same time, food trucks that sold fare more interesting than the usual 'dirty water dogs' and soft pretzels also began to become more popular amongst New Yorkers. Falafel, gourmet ice cream, macaroni and cheese, samosas, and tacos are some of the diverse array of foods offered on these relatively small, inexpensive-to-operate vehicles.

Macaroons have also gained a smaller but equally loyal following amongst foodies as cupcakes. Americans…. [read more]


Ethics Surrounding Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research Research Paper

… Ethics Surrounding Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Since their discovery in the early 1990's, Stem Cells have brought with them the promise of evolutionary and significant scientific and medical research and opportunities that possessed the possibility of radically improving treatments for a host of diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, various cancers and other diseases that currently render patients and scientists helpless to combat. Stem Cells have been at the center of the scientific research paradigm in terms of developing innovative treatments that could revolutionize the current course of medical care (Bellomo, 2006)

With the advent of medical and scientific research comes the inevitable emergence of the controversy that has accompanied every major scientific and medical advancement. The use of Stem Cells is no different. Those…. [read more]


America and the Great War Term Paper

… In the first few years after World War I, relations between the races in America were generally characterized by extreme resentment, riots, and numerous lynchings. The great migration refers to the amount of Blacks who came to the Midwest, fleeing such anger and hostility in the Southern states, in particular.

Based on the terrible toll of human life lost in WWI (over ten million dead) the war was called "The War To End All Wars." This was obviously not the case. Why do you think humanity continues to engage in war?

A desire for imperial control, to exercise untamed capitalist dominance, and the machinations of diplomats and the war machine that were present in World War I still remain in action today.

Why was American…. [read more]


Stalemate to Crisis Term Paper

… This form of journalism was deployed in relation to the Spanish American War largely by the media outlets of William Randolph Hearst. Through yellow journalism, the American popular media used national events to sell newspapers. Although some have seen such journalism, as the misuse of the de Lome letter and the misrepresentation of the sinking of the Maine as evidence of the newspaper's use as a tool of the American government, the practice had the more immediately self-serving effect of encouraging readers to root for the American 'good guys' in a splendid little war of imperialism, and encouraging readers to follow the 'little' and presumably easily won war as a story, rather than as a difficult political decision and series of consequential action of the….

Bone Density Studies This Reports Term Paper

… "If the only option is to look at only the forearm, I'd take it," says Susan Greenspan, director of the Osteoporosis Prevention and Treatment Center at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. The pDEXA test is available in clinics and private doctors' offices."

It is also important to understand that while these machines may be cost-effective, there is slight chance of miscalculation, which may result in problems for the patients. The insurance companies are increasingly demanding physician offices to offer more services while many of them are not covered by insurance.

XCT-2000

Other important machines available for this purpose are ultrasound machines, which have been specifically manufactured for the purpose of bone density measurement. One such machine is XCT-2000. This machine is not exactly meant for…. [read more]


Plato, Nietzsche, and Watt on the Role Term Paper

… ¶ … Plato, Nietzsche, and watt on the role of education

The role of Education

Education plays a critical role in the social spheres, especially in complex, modern societies. It offers a means for adults and children alike to become active players in the transformation of their societies. The central focus of education centers on the behaviors, attitudes and values that facilitate a peaceful co-existence in the face of diversity and pluralism (Plato 12). Philosophers of every period, as from the ancient stages, devoted to it a huge amount of attention. Accordingly, numerous frameworks that touch on the objectivity and nature of education have come into being. This paper critically examines the perspective of three philosophers (Plato, Nietzsche and Watts), in addition, to offering a…. [read more]

… Secondly, I could imagine what we are going to have in the future after we finish our master degree and start working. Thirdly, there were many presentations which were attractive and I learnt from it the best way to give an attractive presentation and to make it academic using theories and depending on marketing background. Then, I felt and I learnt from this experience that each company should have a different strategy. They should not use the same strategy and they should not use the same marketing tools according to their service or according to their product. I noticed which company was applying theories to their product or to their presentation."

For DAN. Penthai Thaworn the field trip was a combination of fun and knowledgeable…. [read more]


Keys Success Effective Project Planning Essay

… Michael, Kashiwagi and Sullivan (2008) base their findings on a long-term study conducted within the construction industry, where a new type of project management was implemented.

The new project management model is based on the more through application of various leadership principles. Some of these principles refer to customer satisfaction, emphasis on performance and the integration of knowledge and expertise, or the emphasis on adequate decision making.

The end result of this new project management leadership-based model was the decrease in management functions by 90 per cent. The results were however relevant in the restricted context of the construction sector, so the three researchers decided to test it within other fields as well. They did so in the setting of food services at the university…. [read more]


Arctic Sovereignty Introduction to International Thesis

… "[footnoteRef:23] In the Arctic, the main issue is not so much "the precise limits of Canada's territories" as the international legal limits of its rights within these territories.[footnoteRef:24] [20: Ibid, p. 98.] [21: Ibid, p. 99. ] [22: Byers, p. 4.] [23: Ibid, p. 4.] [24: Ibid, p. 5.]

Borders do not exist in the Arctic but boundaries do, since most of the region is part of the high seas or international waters.[footnoteRef:25] Canada regards the Northwest Passage as an internal waterway under international law, but full sovereignty only extends to 12 miles (22 kilometers) from shorelines, and no one has sovereignty over the North Pole.[footnoteRef:26] Sovereignty rights exend to 200 nautical miles (370 km) from shore, and sometimes further depending "on the shape and….

Production of Food Products Research Paper

… These animals are forced to eat food that would ordinarily not be part of their natural diet in the interest of producing a less expensive meat product for the consumer.

The ill effects of factory farming are felt not only the animals involved in the process. The effects are more far reaching than that. Among the other effects are the human illness caused by the drug-resistant bacteria associated with the wide-spread use of antibiotics and water and air pollution caused by the inordinately large accumulation of animal waste. Ordinarily neither of these conditions presents itself on a traditional family farm. On such farms the animals are provided living conditions more conducive to their historical environment. As a result, they are subject to less exposure to…. [read more]


Should Animals Be Used in Sports and Entertainment Term Paper

… ¶ … circus without animals, imagine if there was no lion show, no ring master, no flying monkeys, or dancing bears. There are many entertainment venues and sports venues that use animals as part of their show, but this does not necessarily make them abusive or corrupt. Just as human beings, whether they are athletes or clowns, are used as part of entertainment, so are animals. They are neither treated cruelly as a rule, nor neglected. Therefore, their use in sports and entertainment should continue as long as they are being treated with kindness and respect.

Animals should be allowed within entertainment and sports because they serve a specific purpose of entertainment. Many opponents such as members of PETA say that using them in such…. [read more]


Human Evolution Term Paper

… Human Evolution

Cultural variation and changes as determined by the evolutionary process: Analysis of "Culture and the Evolutionary Process" by Robert Boyd and Peter Richerson (1988)

In the study of human evolution, natural science is generally treated as having more significant and dominant role than social science, specifically anthropology or the study of culture. In the seminal work "Culture and the Evolutionary Process" (1988), authors Robert Boyd and Peter Richerson investigates and analyzes the role that the evolutionary process has in influencing cultural changes in the population. More specifically, the authors looked into the interplay between culture and science in helping develop human society holistically, that is, biologically and culturally.

Boyd and Richerson provide two general assumptions that lead to their hypothesis, which posits that…. [read more]


Salem Witch Trials -- Theories Research Paper

… Nevertheless, the concluding paragraph of the text seems to weaken this reproving statement in endorsing "the detection of witchcrafts." Therefore, in Bernard Rosenthal and Perry Miller's views, the courts translated the letter as Mather's seal of appreciation for the trials to continue. Maybe Cotton's most self- negative act inside the eye of the public was his publication of the book The Wonders of the Invisible World, in October, 1692, after the final slayings took place. Even though Cotton's words define, and to some degree defend the trials and killings in Salem for that year, the manuscript is anything but solved with concerns to Mather's true sentiments about the hearings (Hunter). Even though Cotton maintains the book is not transcribed in an evil spirit or with…. [read more]

Art Violence and Social Engagement in Colombia Research Proposal

… ¶ … Colombia is the third-largest recipient of military aid from the United States and is at a critical juncture in its turbulent history. More than three million people have been displaced in Colombia during the past decade alone, and violent deaths and kidnappings remain alarmingly high. While violence is nothing new to the people of Colombia, their response to its sources and causes have been portrayed in the visual arts in various ways, with one of the most recent manifestations of this being portrayal such as the "The Skin of Memory," developed by the anthropologist Pilar Riano-Alcala and the artist Suzanne Lacy in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team in Colombia. Because art must also serve a social function and civic responsibility, this thesis evaluates…. [read more]


Jungian Phenomenology and Police Training the Methodologies Term Paper

… Jungian Phenomenology and Police Training

The methodologies selected for this study were the meta-synthesis approach developed by Noblit and Hare (1988) and a content analysis technique described by Neuman (2003) and others. The meta-synthesis approach allows researchers to draw broad substantive interpretations from various sources. According to York (1994), the meta-synthesis technique is a type of research that "systematically compares studies in order to interpret meaning, to clarify research foci, and to resolve existing substantive, methodological, or interpretive problems" (p. xiii). This approach allows the researcher to "compare and analyze text, creating new interpretations in the process" (Noblit & Hare, 1988, p. 9).

The seven-step process used in the meta-synthesis methodology developed by Noblit and Hare is set forth in Table 1 below.

Even before the war started, there was. More than two-thirds of the British population now believes that Tony Blair had lied to a lot of unease within the armed forces. The author is also seeing a diminishing popularity of President Bush in his own country. The author feels that one day the children of the Iraqi and Americans who have died due to this war will ask the question as to the cause of death of their parents. They will get only one final answer - the politicians lied. The author is going…. [read more]

Interpretive Paradigm and Feminist Paradigm

For the study of tourism to work best and to succeed, it proceeds as all other fields must, namely by research. Research, however, is never homogeneous. It is comprised of various methodologies, ranging from the hard, empirical quantitative type of study, t o the soft, more subjective, qualitative interpretations.

Not only are there different methodologies, but research often, or, rather, invariably, operates against a specific theory and this theory depends on the author's inclinations. Some for instance may be inclined to use a positive theory, whilst other a feminist or grounded theory, or phenomenological approach amongst many others. These are all different perspective -- or ways of looking…. [read more]


Civil War in a Long Essay

… He realized that the support of the Northern abolitionists for the war and the Republican Party was far more important than hopeless attempts to appeal to slave owners and Southern sympathizers who had never supported the administration in any case.

In addition, poor whites in Appalachia, and in the areas of the Upper South and Border States where there were few slaves, were not particularly enthusiastic for the Confederate cause. West Virginia seceded from the rest of the state in 1861 and sided with the North, while in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee the majority of the white population was neutral or hostile to the Confederacy. Over 90% of the immigrants to the United States came to the North, and this remained the case…. [read more]


Oprah Winfrey in a Business Essay

… The organization labeled Oprah's Angel Network is now dissolved. Further, as an indicator of her philanthropic tendencies, Oprah has in the past appeared in a compilation of the most generous or philanthropic individuals in the U.S. Also, it can be noted that during the Hurricane Katrina disaster, Oprah established yet another charitable drive that helped raise a significant sum of money to help victims. It is also important to note that as far as philanthropy is concerned, Oprah has in the past supported education by sponsoring African-American men to either complete or continue their studies. Oprah has also been active in some parts of Africa, most particularly South Africa where she has used her media divisions to highlight the plight of children suffering as a…. [read more]


Occupy Wall Street Movement Began Research Paper

… The living condition of the protestors notwithstanding, there is a tactic of diminishing the significance of the movement in an attempt to sweep the protests aside with no significant action taken by Congress or the President on the issue of income inequality.

Liberal Coverage

The Liberal media has taken a much more proactive approach to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Embracing a sit back and watch approach, these media outlets provide their cameras to individual protestors to hear their complaints, and are often far more open to allowing the protestors their time to speak their mind. Liberal media has an inherent support of these sort of movement, as their main concern is with the protection of the less fortunate, which includes many whose vital life…. [read more]


Sacred World of Slaves Essay

… In 1950, this meant that they obtained "unprecedented exposure among the white kids who were not as adventurous as the others who had sought out black music" (Charnas 36).

When Freed moved to New York in 1954 to work for WINS, his audience expanded even further and other East Coast stations began to play rock and roll as well. Of course, some whites realized perfectly well that this was black music, and it had powerful enemies from the start, such as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, as well as the Ku Klux Klan and white evangelical religious leaders. Major record companies would almost never record black artists, and indeed the record business was as racist and segregated as any other at the time. Black artists…. [read more]


America's Rise to Industrial Power Research Paper

… Americas Rise to Industrial Power

From reconstruction to the onset of the Progressive Era, the United States vastly transformed itself. Slaves were freed, although many of them continued to live austere lives under the sharecropping system. The Railroad and new farm technologies revolutionized trade and commerce, creating more efficient markets, but dangerously top-heavy and centralized ones as well. And the rise of increasingly clever advertising techniques helped companies to attract customers, while also risking their alienation and stoking their mistrust. Mark Twain called this time period the Gilded Age, for its veneer of prosperity, but jugular of suffering and exploitation. It represents one of the most dynamic, and perhaps even most definitively American, decades in the county's history.

The thirty five-years, from the Civil War's…. [read more]


BP Strategy Based on Oil Price Variation Research Proposal

… Companies competing in the oil and gas industry today are faced with a two-fold dilemma. On the one hand, they have invested enormous sums in an infrastructure that it specifically designed to identify and extract fossil fuels in the most efficient manner possible and most have entered into long-term contractual agreements with other countries where the proven reserves are located. On the other hand, the world's supply of fossil fuels is rapidly being depleted, and many experts caution that the days of cheap oil are about to end. In this environment, determining how variations in the price of oil tend to affect oil and gas companies' strategies has assumed new importance and relevance. The purpose of this study was to develop such an analysis to…. [read more]
