Environmental Worldview: A Confessional Term Paper

… I take a long, hot shower, leave the water running as I brush my teeth -- and cut locally grown organic peaches upon my commercially produced corn flakes.

Thus, culturally I love the outdoors and support local social and political efforts to protect and conserve the environment. I spend time and some money to make an environmental contribution, and yet save economically on some products that are neither financially nor environmentally conservative. I support development as a person and I am in search, always, of better and more lucrative job prospects that are rooted in business expansion, but on a level of conservation I wish to have some refuge from my busy life in a better, greener world, and I do my best to practice….

Coca-Cola Company Executive Summary Term Paper

… Organizational structure

Coke's organizational structure works well for distribution, but it does present problems, outlined elsewhere, in terms of financial relationships. To its credit, the system of independent bottlers seems to be able to put virtually the same Coke on every table on the globe with precious little variation in taste, etc. Aside from greater oversight in financial areas especially of the vendors/bottlers, and greater sensitivity in human resources areas in the company's core operations, it doesn't appear that this is an area that would require upheaval, perhaps just minor 'tweaking.'

Operational and distribution strategy

The fact that Coke operates with a system of independent bottlers and vendors has resulted in the "graft culture" noted above that escalates the cost of doing business (Edwards 2004).…. [read more]


Health and Wellness Foods Term Paper

… This has led to a large number of acquisitions of the small and mid-sized companies by the large companies, as this is expected to become profitable in the future. Among them the biggest is probably the $20.3 billion acquisition of Best Foods by Unilever, and the acquisition of Nabisco for $14.9 billion by Philip Morris. This is because the growth among the giants in this business has not been remarkable to say the least.

According to experts in the business, the organic and natural food products are expected to provide sales with values of over $60 billions during the last year. The speed of growth is also very high as the segment is growing by about 13% per year on base sales of $26 billion…. [read more]


Business Breaking Into the Asian Term Paper

… A program with a strong tie between requested social behavior and sales of the company's products, but that does not provide consumers with direct personal benefits from engaging in the social behavior, is the "Once is Not Enough" program of The Body Shop. This chain of franchised stores sells a line of naturally-based cosmetics and personal care products and has been urging customers to bring in their empty cosmetic containers for recycling or reuse. They pay 5 cents a piece for containers to be recycled and 25 cents a piece for containers that customers ask them to refill. Shop owners feel the program is successful, seeing that they hand out thousands of dollars in rebates each year. However, it would be impossible to determine how…. [read more]


Aspirin Term Paper

… However, there are some dangers that come with taking large doses of Aspirin. Most people know that taken over long periods, Aspirin can cause gastrointestinal bleeding, and some people cannot take the drug because it upsets their stomachs, which is one reason buffered Aspirin was developed. Regular dosages can also cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and large doses can be fatal, especially in children ("Aspirin"). Scientists have developed some alternatives to Aspirin like Acetaminophen (Tylenol), which often does not irritate the gastric system but can help relieve pain and lower fevers. In addition, a new "poly-Aspirin" has been developed that helps those who are allergic to the drug tolerate dosages (Gribbin 28).

Unlike many other early drugs that have been replaced by newer and better…. [read more]


World Trade Organization (WTO) Term Paper

… Furthermore, it discourages industrialization in developing countries. Exporting raw materials to richer countries for processing is cheaper than developing their own manufacturing. They are thus reduced to a very small share of production. These poor countries also rely on only one or two raw commodities for their national earnings, hence the sudden and unfair increase of tariffs can further limit their potential for economic growth.

Environmental Deterioration is one more problem. Overuse of fertilizers and chemicals, overgrazing and dumping agricultural by-products into rivers and steams pollute air and water quality and damage the soil.

Everywhere in the world, farmers demand an entirely different approach to agriculture and trade. They want one that realistically addresses food sovereignty, security and the preservation and promotion of rural livelihood.…. [read more]

Cod Written by Mark Kurlansky Term Paper

… It's no fish ye're buying: it's men's lives." -- Walter Scott, The Antiquary (1816) - quoted in "Cod" by Mark Kurlansky

In Cod, Kurlansky blends political and economic history with small highlights into cultural and cooking traditions with so many cooking recipes. This book is politically and culturally a very good source of information.

Once the population of codfish was abundant that explorers use to dip baskets into the ocean to catch them. But the fact is that for hundreds of years people did not value their presence thinking that the millions of eggs laid by female cod would mean millions of fish for man to eat -- and make money out of. The good population of cod and the fact that they could be…. [read more]


Stephen Crane's Novella, Maggie Term Paper

… Maggie seeks to escape from the Bowery and doesn't wish to become as her family. After his father dies, it is in Jimmie we see distaste for the upper class society. He despises it out of jealousy and ignorance. The narrator in the novella states that "He [Jimmie] maintained a belligerent attitude toward all well-dressed men."(14) By chapter four, the reader sees that Jimmie has become cynical and tougher ("he became so sharp that he believed in nothing") (14) unlike Maggie who had blossomed in a mud puddle. She grew to be a most rare and wonderful production of a tenement district, a pretty girl. None of the dirt of Rum Alley seemed to be in her veins." (p 16)

Jimmie chose to find power…. [read more]


Alcohol Prohibition Lead to Crime? Term Paper

… Crime was often overlooked due to this. The lack of state funding and man power contributed to the growth in crime during the Prohibition Era.

According to Kyvig, "prohibition was most assuredly a major landmark in the history of American syndicate crime." The organized crime syndicate is a byproduct of the prohibition. With loose state laws, bootlegging, and smuggling abound, crime became more 'organized'. Gangs had declared territories, with key members often in political power. Law enforcement agencies then reflected this corruption in its own enforcers. Many judges and police officers were eventually brought to justice after lending support to local crime syndicates.

Essentially, criminal syndicates are businesses that pose as legitimate organizations, but really exist solely to promote the gainfulness of the criminal underworld.…. [read more]


Photo Was Taken Essay

… I was really looking forward to seeing our friends, many of whom went to different schools than we did. We all came together to play soccer. Rich or poor, Jewish or Muslim, boy or girl, we all loved to compete on the field. It was unique for kids our age, I was told. My mom was always amazed that the girls wanted to play alongside the boys, but that's because she was so old-fashioned.

All of us friends were aware of our ethnic differences because our families had known each other for so long. We lived close by, but some of us went to private schools. Others went to religious academies and most of us went to the public elementary school. I had been over…. [read more]


Keeping Native American Language Alive Term Paper

… The Aztec-Tanoan language includes tribes in New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California and Utah (Columbia Encyclopedia).

Legislation

In 1990, Congress passed the "Native American Languages Act (saving a culture, 2002)" and brought to the forefront the importance of saving the indigenous languages of the United States. This act "mandates that the government preserve and promote the right of Indians to use and develop their indigenous languages (saving a culture, 2002)." In 1992, there was additional legislation that provided annual grants for language recovery programs and these grants are still in place today (saving in culture, 2002).

This legislation was a big change from the government's normally hostile attitude concerning the language and customs of the Indians.

Conclusion

There are some Native American languages that have either…. [read more]


Xerox Corporation - Company Profile Term Paper

… The Xerox 1010 offers a digital alternative to the standard copier and has many new capabilities over old roller models (Xerox.com, 2002).

In an interview, analyst Shannon Cross stated that in the case of Xerox, "I think it is just literally a case of waiting, positioning and watching to see when the economy really starts to improve and IT budgets open up" (In Cross, 2002, Interview transcript). Standard and Poor's analyst, Richard Stice commented, "They are doing a nice job, but they are far from out of the woods," (from Reuters's Newswire, October 25, 2002).

Xerox has seen some very difficult times recently. Financial woes, brought on by lagging sales and rising expenses have been multiplied by charges and fines by the SEC due to…. [read more]


Bullying - A True Story Term Paper

… A also emphasized that telling an adult about bullying is not the same as tattling. "Faith, for bullying to be stopped, you have to go to your teacher, principal, or an adult who is in charge. If someone doesn't know, then she can't help."

But the bullying did not stop. Each day I saw Faith's hurt and depression grow. I reached a point when I could not stand the pain in her eyes anymore. I was angry that my child was being bullied from her classmates. Who did they think they were to call her names!

A approached the principal. Actually, I stormed into the school demanding that the name-calling stop immediately. He promised the bullying would stop. He said, "Faith, if someone bullies you,…. [read more]


Nestle Infant Milk Formula Case Term Paper

… Nestle may chosen to focus on the known benefits of infant formula (convenience and sterility, to name two), while somehow ignoring the known drawbacks.

At best, Nestle was highly negigent in attempting to determine how infant formula would impact the health of third world children. Evidence in the libel trial, and exposed in the mainstream media certainly make it clear that Nestle knew that infant formula in the third world posed certain risks. Was Nestle's action universally applicable? Certainly, Nestle chose to focus on their own desire for profit, above the needs of people in the third world. This is a direct violation of Kant's categorical imperative, which argues that moral duty must be obeyed regardless of individual self-interest. Certainly the Nestle corporation itself, and….
