Black and Decker Essay

… Another factor is the physical and capital constraints. Even if Black & Decker had wanted to move more quickly, it may not have been able to. The company would have had labor contracts at its factories, capital constraints limiting its ability to build newer, more efficient factories and of course it requires a tremendous amount of human resources to restructure an organization the size of Black & Decker even under the best of circumstances. Additionally, the company's brand has not fully made the transition -- consumers still expect an industry-leading product from Black & Decker, but they definitely prefer it to be cost competitive. Thus, Black & Decker's current strategy to some extent is a reflection of the market's view of the company. Management may…. [read more]

Black Monday - 1987 Essay

… The Forbes journalist references a comment by financial icon Warren Buffett, who fully understood that "…allowing investment banks and hedge funds and other investors to buy or sell index futures with only a 5% down-payment was an invitation to disaster" (Lenzner, 2).

The Federal Reserve explains that the crash in 1987 showed "…the weaknesses of the trading systems themselves"; the crash also showed how the trading systems can be "strained and come close to breaking" when conditions are "extreme" (Carlson, 2006). A major problem that contributed to the lightning-fast decline was the great difficulty in "…gathering information in the rapidly changing and chaotic environment," Carlson explains. The existing systems were simply not able to process so many transactions at the same time and the "uncertainty…. [read more]

Black and Decker Forecasts Research Paper

… There are no major changes expected with respect to the company's solvency or liquidity ratios. The figures show that the performance of the company is expected to improve over the next five years. If strong growth overseas continues, and the long-term growth in the U.S. housing market materializes as expected, both the return on assets and the return on equity should improve steadily over this time period, making the gains resulting from the merger more apparent on the company's financial statements.


The current market cap for the company is $12.97 billion, based on a share price of $76.86. This price is near the top of the company's 52-week range. The first step in determining the appropriate valuation for the company is to determine a…. [read more]

Black Death and Its Impact Essay

… Also too, members of the lower class become enormously wealthy taking over services (such as doctoring) that others were reluctant to do, or demanding higher wages and profiting from the anarchy of the Black Death.

Social classes were also unmoored by the great flux of social upheaval that occurred throughout Europe with approximately "one quarter to one third of the European population" (Perry 189) fleeing the towns and cities for the countryside. Many of the lords and upper classes also became poor due to failure of their crops and farmlands and due to their being compelled to pay exorbitant wages for labor (Perry 189-190).

Looting occurred on a frequent basis all of which resulted in a new middle class being formed called the "nouveaux riche."…. [read more]

Manning Marable in His Book Race Term Paper

… Manning Marable

In his book Race, Reform and Rebellion, Manning Marable takes readers on an informative trip back in time to witness the lives of blacks in America from the end of World II to 1982, or what he calls the Second Reconstruction. He then sets the stage for what he calls the Third Reconstruction, or the transfer of power to the working class.

To set a foundation and educate readers, most who are not knowledgeable about this historic period, Marable uses his Prologue to review the First Reconstruction in 1867, where the defeated South was divided into five military districts, and its impact on the black people. Marable notes that some progress was made during this time:

Reconstruction produced major changes in the social…. [read more]

Black Markets and Their Results Term Paper

… Countermeasures must continue to emphasize containment of material at the source in Russia and other countries. Once the material is illegally and surreptitiously removed from a storage area, the difficulty of intercepting it en route to foreign buyers increases dramatically. Nevertheless, interdiction efforts at international borders, between the original storage areas and the borders, and across transit countries can greatly complicate efforts, making life difficult for contraband mercenaries. Hence a layered defense, with strategies directed at every possible checkpoint in the trafficking routes of HEU and plutonium, is an essential ingredient of any program to secure nuclear materials (Schweitzer and Dorsch 64).


Probably one of the most dehumanizing and reprehensible of the black markets is the one that exists in human trafficking. There…. [read more]

Black History Effects of Capitalism Term Paper

… After freeing from oppression, blacks still had to face discrimination, as they were restricted to the jobs, which were considered to be more dangerous, and worth less than those reserved for whites. The Blacks were also used as an army of jobless that could be used by bosses to threaten unions to keep salaries low or else they could lose their jobs. This discrimination was an open fact that blacks were dismissed in excess during an economic decline and therefor had to suffer comparatively in greater numbers of unemployment than whites.

Study after study confirms that the inequality between wealth and poverty is more pronounced in the U.S. than any other industrialized nation. The Labor Department reports that one-quarter of all workers in the U.S.…. [read more]

Real Options Valuation Market Investors Case Study

… She estimated foregone profits with the current revenue stream per subscriber monthly or yearly. The penetration rate determined the annual revenue per year, which translated to $1.22 profit per channel passed. Martin then estimated the volatility for COX using a one month call option which estimates 50% volatility. She then used ten years as the maturity time, while she collected information from U.S. treasury about interest rates.

These inputs were then used to estimate options valuation. She then multiplied the result by the number of channels, to reach the total value of stealth tier. She netted out incremental costs and associated it with stealth tier installation corresponding to premium paid by the company for the cable option. The net value represented incremental 14% premium than…. [read more]

Black and Decker Supply Chain Management Relying Thesis

… Black & Decker Supply Chain Management

Relying on a distribution network that was generating the majority of their revenue and becoming more powerful due to their ability to exert pricing constraints on suppliers, Black & Decker soon found it being squeezed on pricing on the distribution side of their business and increasingly constrained by the cost efficiencies of its supply chains on the other. Wal-Mart's ability to exert influence on Black & Decker was growing, and the need for having more efficient management of its own supply chain was going to make the difference between the tools supplier being able to retain Wal-Mart as a top channel partner. K-Mart, going through extensive restructuring of its store operations, also had significant requirements for better visibility into…. [read more]

Job Market Family Rearing and Environmental Influence Term Paper

… ¶ … Familial and Environmental Influences on Job Market Prospects and Quality of Work Life Reported by African-Americans

Previous studies suggest that African-Americans spend much of their time engaged at work and that the quality of work life reported among African-Americans at best has been described as plagued by inequality and lack of opportunity or stability (Riley, 2005; Tuch & Martin, 1991; Wilson, 1996). This is surprising given that so much of adult African-American's time is spent at a self-reported 'unsatisfactory' environment (Wilson, 1996). Researchers have long examined trends among employment, unemployment and African-Americans. Few researchers however have examined the relationships that exist between familial influences, job market prospects and environment on African-Americans. This research aims to fill the gap in research that currently exists…. [read more]

Caribbean Slavery Black Term Paper

… In Haiti's case, it resulted in the flight and massacre of the white population. In other Caribbean republics, black suffrage brought with it white flight. On one notion there is certainty: once an oppressed population with a vast numeric majority gives birth to leaders capable of mobilizing them to action, little can be done to return them to servitude. European powers lost 70 thousand troops trying to subdue the black slave population of Haiti. To this day, production levels are inferior to those experienced in colonial times and the dictatorships and disease characteristic of African republics continue to plague the island. Jamaica is dependent on a tourist economy and suffers from real incomes inferior to those found in Eastern Europe. Trinidad and Tobago's black population,…. [read more]

Racism in Occupations Thesis

… African-Americans in the Field of Medicine: Social, Financial, Institutional, And Psychological Barriers

They call themselves 'the three doctors.' They are three African-American young men from the inner cities of Newark, the children of single mothers, all of whom became doctors. Their achievement is chronicled in their bestselling book The Pact: Three young men make a promise and fulfill a dream. These three fatherless young men were intellectually brilliant -- all tested high enough on a placement exam to attend University High, a magnet high school in Newark. However, without guidance at home, they cut classes and did not take academics seriously until they accidentally wandered into the school library and saw a presentation on Seton Hall University's scholarship for minorities in its Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Plus Program.….

Attitude and Behavior Developmental Task Term Paper


There is an acknowledged identity crisis present in the African-American race due to the high rates of incarceration and low education achievements. The college environment serves to influence the development required in the self-identity transition toward the self-actualization of the individual in gaining a view of identity characterized by achievement. There is a delay in achievement associated with the failure to accept self or group identity. This work will illustrate that attitude is linked to talk development and behavioral adjustment which is part of the requirement for making the commitment for achievement in educational attainment. Principles of military discipline and leadership will also be reviewed…. [read more]

Negro League Baseball in Virginia Term Paper

… ¶ … Silhouette of America's Dream: Negro League Baseball in Tidewater, Virginia

Introduction report in the Norfolk Journal and Guide in 1917 paints a picture of racial harmony in Tidewater, Virginia, that would almost make one wonder why there needed to be Negro League Baseball. The banner headlines almost said it all: "Big Labor Day Celebration," "Thousands of White and Colored Laborers Paraded Streets of City." "Harmony Between Races"

As that report told it, the celebration was a landmark of many sorts. In a relatively lengthy preface to the description of the baseball game that was the culmination of the day, it noted that "If carrying the stars and stripes is a demonstrative evidence of patriotism and loyalty to the United States, the Norfolk colored….

Slavery the Emancipation of Slaves Research Paper

… Several criminological and sociological theories can be used to explain "black crime." Durkheim's concept of anomie, the erosion of social norms, was one result of peonage and its similar racist institutions. Likewise, strain theory can easily account for the manifestation of "black crime" in the Untied States. An oppressed culture evolves in opposition to the dominant culture, rejects the norms of the dominant culture, but has no institutions or structures in place to create a constructive response to oppression. A similar situation plays itself out all over the world, where oppressed communities struggle to find strong leadership and a cohesive means by which to achieve economic, political, and social power.

Harlem During 1920-1960 Term Paper

… Harlem During 1920-1960

The United States is considered for centuries now the "land of all opportunities." Throughout time, it has attracted millions of people from around the world in search for a better future and for new ground for personal affirmation. However, behind the glamour and excitement of the "American dream" there lie numerous unsuccessful stories that come to point out the different perspectives of a certain reality.

The struggles that have marked the history of Harlem can be considered relevant examples in this sense. This part of the city of New York has shared the image of a troubled existence, that of the Black Americans that erected it, and of the millions of immigrants who found shelter in the slums and overcrowded streets of….

Black Boy by Richard Wright Stands Today Research Paper

… Black Boy by Richard Wright stands today, some sixty years after its initial publication, as still perhaps the most comprehensive and gripping look at racism in the American literary tradition. Wright is not satisfied to merely portray American racism as an insidious way of viewing the world, or as a perspective held by a number of hateful individuals; instead, Wright underlines the fact that the core of race and racism exists in the very fabric of society. In other words, Wright believes that it would be virtually impossible to characterize American society in the absence of racism. So although the particular instances in which Wright is harmed by racism may have been perpetrated by a finite number of individuals, Black Boy makes it apparent that…. [read more]

African-American Civil Rights Struggle Term Paper

… And more than that this was regardless of skin color or ethnicity so that once the war ended and people returned home, there was less tension between the two and there was also this awakening of the realization that the blacks were being discriminated against unfairly. Moreover, as there was a shortage of labor and there was plentiful employment due to the fact that reconstruction had to be done, additionally the industry was growing due to the European demand for goods and services which was being supplied by America as Europe was left worse off in the wake of the war.

Even new small businesses launching now and then can be helped by the company to secure their contracts for the rest of their operating term. However, there is a threat of a big marketing firm swooping in, and applying price cutting schemes to snatch away customers.

Lonesome George, Martha, and the Black Rhinoceros Research Paper

… Black Rhinoceros / Extinction

Imagining Extinction:

The Black Rhinoceros and the Last of the Race

This paper intends to discuss the idea of extinction. Such discussion necessarily entails a certain amount of scientific discourse, but in particular I would like to ramify the scientific discussion with some literary and cultural insights as well. The reason for this should be obvious. Extinction as a scientific concept is the end of a species: as species are scientifically defined by the ability to breed and create fertile offspring, the very concept of a species depends upon the notion of reproduction, perpetuation, posterity. Extinction, therefore, entails the cessation of this reproduction, followed by the death of all representatives of the given species. In discussing the idea of extinction, however,…. [read more]
