Brand Relationships "Having Essay

… SubWay represents a healthier alternative to many of the more traditional fast food chains. Therefore, many people associate this brand with active or healthy lifestyle and this can also serve as a source of self-identification as well. However, compared to Jeep, this brand relationship is most likely not as strong amongst most consumers. Yet, it reasonable to suspect that for many consumers that SubWay brand is perceived strongly as a healthier alternative to other brands in the same industry such as McDonalds, Burger King, or other competing brands.

Discussion on Fournier and Brand Relationships

I think it is entirely reasonable to perceive consumers as having relationship with brands. I have noticed myself anthropomorphizing many of the objects I work with on a daily basis; especially…. [read more]


Car Was a Used Jeep Term Paper

… ¶ … car was a used Jeep that I bought during my senior year in high school.

It was a 4-speed manual transmission and more than a few years old, which is why it came at a good price. It also had a few minor problems that needed a little bit of work, which I had done bit by bit because I'd spent most of my savings on the vehicle itself. It was definitely a no-frills vehicle, but it was rugged and I liked the fact that it had a winch attached to the front grill even though I couldn't really imagine when I might need it for anything, but hey, you never, know, right? That's something my dad says all the time..

Daimler a Long and Tangled Essay

… Kirk Kerkorian, a billionaire investor with Chrysler who owned significant shares in the merged company, sued in 2000 on the grounds that the Daimler-Benz company had committed fraud in their characterization of the merger.

An assessment that same year illuminates how badly the two companies fit together from the very beginning:

When the two companies merged in 1998, Daimler Chairman Juergen Schrempp promised a "merger of equals." But it wasn't long before Chrysler executives complained the bullheaded Germans wouldn't listen to the Americans.

"We don't demand things of people; we seek people's cooperation," says Gerald Meyers, former chairman of American Motors and now a professor at the University of Michigan business school. "These two cultures were therefore bound to collide."

And collide they did. (Jamieson,…. [read more]

Vivid Detail Reflections on a Close Call Term Paper

… ¶ … Vivid Detail

REFLECTIONS on a CLOSE CALL was sitting in my usual seat on the left side of the classroom when the professor interrupted his lecture to ask a question. Squinting against the bright sunshine beaming through the window to my left, I started to raise my hand but, for some reason, was completely unable to put my pen down. Curiously, I was holding it very tightly out in front of me, within my two closed fists, clutching it very tightly instead of in my writing hand; still, I was unable to release my grip to respond to my professor's question.

It was something I had never really noticed before, but my pen seemed much larger than normal, and it had numerous curved…. [read more]


Energy Usage Electricity Coffeemaker, Microwave Essay

… I rarely shut down my computer because I do not like to wait for it to start up again, but the energy saved would be worth the very minimal amount of time lost for start up.

I do not generally do a lot of driving because I am mindful of the cost of fuel. I currently drive a Jeep Liberty, which is not the most fuel-efficient vehicle to drive. When I am able to afford another car, I will select a smaller one that gets better gas mileage.

If coal or heating oil came from Russia, I expect that prices would increase substantially. I am generally frugal with respect to heat in the winter, but I would probably keep the thermostat even a little lower…. [read more]

… "The absorption of one company by another," Black's adds, "[with] the former losing its legal identity, and latter retaining its own name and identity and acquiring assets, liabilities, franchises, and powers of former, and absorbed company ceasing to exist as separate business entity" (p. 988).

In other cases, mergers and takeovers have appeared to be the result of opportunists looking for the quick profit; however, the consolidation of the highly complementary assets and resources of both of these giants will create some clear advantages for everyone concerned. Nevertheless, just as bigger may not mean better, merger may not mean advantage. In his chapter, "Technology Strategy: Collaborative Mode, V.K. Narayanan says that from a strategic viewpoint, collaborative mode is undertaken by firms when the economics of…. [read more]

Ecological Footprint Thesis

… Ecological Footprint: Lab

When I first learned that my ecological footprint was calculated at 4.7 planets, I was upset. I have been trying to use the resources around me in a responsible manner, but according to this calculation, my lifestyle was nowhere near what would be defined as sustainable, either for myself or much less my children. An ecological footprint is defined according to environmental scientists as "how much land and water area a human population requires to produce the resource it consumes and to absorb its wastes, using prevailing technology"

Footprint Basics - Overview, 2009, Footprint Network). Another way of thinking of this is how much harm an individual life does to the planet that cannot be undone.

The footprint is a product of…. [read more]

It was a bloody mess. As I looked down at my hands in anguish I realized that it was not just my appendages that were bloody, but the entire front of my shirt was streaked amber red and the tops of my jeans were much darker as well.

A looked down at the body of a young girl, it was blackened with mud, and smelled like gasoline and burnt rubber. Of course, that could have been the environment and not her, but I was too anxious to tell the difference.

There was a deep gash along her forehead, and a puddle of coagulating fluid pooled under her blonde hair that spilled out like a…. [read more]

Technology Energy Efficiency Thesis

… The Environmental Protection Agency hasn't yet figured out how to correctly measure range, so those numbers are even vaguer. This vagueness strengthens what has become known as range anxiety, which is the fear of being stranded miles from a charging station with a dead battery (The future of the electric car, 2010).

The Chevy Volt, for instance, receives 93 miles-per-gallon equal in electric-only mode (MPGe), 37 MPG in gasoline-only approach, and a combined composite rating of 60 MPG. Advertising 93 MPGe is predominantly doubtful, since the car can drive in electric-only mode for only twenty five to fifty miles in moderate conditions. Hills and tremendous temperature conditions decrease even this moderate range as they put supplementary damage on batteries. Additionally, it is hard to devise…. [read more]

Civil Liberties: Jones Case Essay

… The main issue to address in the case was whether the warrantless use of a GPS tracking device on Jones' car to track the suspect's movements on public streets infringed Jones rights according to the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court stated that the installation and use of the tracking device without a warrant was an illegal search based on the Fourth Amendment. The court also argued that the placement of the GPS device was likened to trespass since the police had physically intruded the defendant's private property to place the device. Therefore, the law enforcement officers were required to obtain a warrant in order to use the GPS device. The main reasoning for the ruling is that…. [read more]

International Procurement Dissertation

… School of Engineering and Design

Science in [your course title goes here]

This study investigates the circumstances in which buying materials and components from foreign suppliers can offer benefits to a manufacturer and those in which buying locally offers more advantages, taking into consideration factors such as the nature of the item to be purchased, the level of production technology, the item costs, the volatility of demand, rate of change of specification, among other variables. Firms must make important changes if they wish to reap the potentially huge scale economies of international procurement. For example, procurement decisions for low-volume, low-cost commodities (especially those with high transportation costs) can be left to regional headquarters or even to individual affiliates. Within the firm, procurement decisions need to…. [read more]

Literal and Non-Literal in Advertisements or Comedies Term Paper

… Literal and Non-Literal

To quickly find examples of the "literal" -- genuine or real meaning -- versus "non-literal" -- or words or expressions that convey significance beyond the primary meaning -- in advertising, a person just has to open the closest magazine with automobile advertisements or watch the latest TV show with car commercials.

Auto ads have long been associated with symbolism of life such as animals and nature. Many of the cars are named after animals or drawn to look like that animal. Many of the commercials on TV today show SUVs, Jeeps and similar vehicles in deserts, mountains, rivers and the like. The music or sounds of the animals go along with the visuals.

The literal meaning is that these cars can drive…. [read more]


U.S. Automotive Industry Chosen Essay

… S. And Japanese cars. This gap remained because U.S. automakers tried applying JIT techniques without a full understanding of the whole Japanese manufacturing system, while Japanese automakers had decades to develop, refine and master their JIT approach.

Another significant paradigm of the 1980s was the global nature of vehicle manufacturing. Automakers started assembling vehicles around the world. This trend was accelerated in the 1990s with the construction of overseas facilities and mergers between multinational automakers. This global expansion gave automakers a greater capacity to infiltrate new markets quickly and at lower costs. The increased product offerings in many markets led to consumers having a greater variety of vehicles from which to choose. To this new vehicle buffet was coupled the explosion of the internet, which…. [read more]


Chrysler Group LLC SWOT Analysis Research Proposal

… Chrysler Group LLC SWOT Analysis

The intent of this analysis is to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) facing the new Chrysler Group LLC.

Chrysler continues to have an exceptionally strong presence in the minivan market which is a source of recurring revenue from dealer service and aftermarket products.

Leadership of Henry Ford-Ford Motor Term Paper

… The company became so integrated by the late 1920's that it was completely self-sufficient. Ford controlled rubber plantations in Brazil, a fleet of ships, a railroad, sixteen coal mines, and thousands of acres of timberland and iron-ore mines (Iacocca 76). But, his control eventually led to tunnel vision that kept his workers producing only one model. He didn't bring out a new design until 1927. General Motors was making a variety of models and prices to suit all tastes and moreover, had made peace with the labor unions, which Ford violently opposed (Iacocca 76). If World War II had not turned the company's manufacturing prowess to making B-24 bombers and jeeps, it's possible that the 1932 V-8 engine might have been Ford's last innovation (Iacocca….

What are the metaphors for the Mescalero Apache? Do you think metaphors influence the way we see the world? Or do you think they are a reflection of our perceptions?

According to Claire R. Farrer's book Thunder Rides a Black Horse, the metaphors the Mescalero Apache people use to express what it is like to come of age as a young woman, to understand the heavens, and to mark the passage of time are critical to understanding these native people's culture.
