In a collection of essays analyzing the similarities and differences of the Vietnam and Iraq Wars, ed. David Ryan demonstrates that the two wars are very similar in public sentiment…. [read more]


Video "Flight of the Phoenix Essay

… Also, it is probable that Towns was somewhat reluctant to fly a plane built by Dorfmann because he did not want to disappoint the people who considered him to be the only person who could save them. The Captain felt sorry about the situation that he was in, but he was well-acquainted with the importance of hierarchy within a group. One of the principal reasons for which he accepted to name Dorfmann as the group's leader was the fact that he knew that this would stimulate the group in getting actively involved in building the plane.

Towns was reestablished as the group's leader when he was in charge of piloting the plane and considering the previous experience that the group had with planes, it is…. [read more]

Phoenix Advertising

Dear Mr. Forest:

Roanoke Branch Customer Satisfaction Proposal

As you are well aware, Phoenix Advertising thrives because of its very high levels of customer satisfaction. As a relatively smaller agency in the advertising industry, we have historically competed on quality rather than price. Unfortunately, customers of our Roanoke branch are increasingly price sensitive in these challenging economic times. Roanoke has responded to demands from customers for lower-priced services and has tried to make up for the discounts by taking on a larger client load.

While Roanoke sales management has the best interests of the company in mind, the results of moving from our premium-price, high quality service strategy has not been…. [read more]

Eligibility Rules and Agency/Program Policy Essay

… Where only one spouse is a candidate for Medicaid eligibility, there are limits to the amount of income that the other spouse may earn, set by individual states: those limits can be as low as approximately $20,000 per year and may be as much as approximately $100,000 per year.

The purpose of these look back provisions is to prevent individuals from merely transferring their assets to family members for the…. [read more]


Adult Education Programs and Activities in the United States Toward a Balanced History Thesis

… Adult Education Programs and Activities in the United States: Toward a Balanced History

What 'should' be included in adult education histories?

The historical field continues to be looked at in a less favourable way as its purpose is not understood well, but also because historians often fail to present all elements and sides to a historical event. In this order of ideas, the adult education histories should contain vast references to all participants to an event, recollections from various sides, a wider coverage of the occurred events, and most importantly, all these must be presented in an unbiased manner. In other words, the adult educational histories should contain more than the "big trees."

How is the purpose behind writing a history related to ideas about…. [read more]

… ¶ … founding in the early 1970s, the University of Phoenix has become not only the most successful for profit educational institution, but numbers millions of graduates to date. Its success has much to do with its commitment to a strong enrollment strategy that treats students ubiquitously and allows them to quickly and efficiently attain degree certifications to progress their academic careers.

Future Technology: The University Essay

… The Pew Internet and American Life Project reports similar trends, particularly among students 18 -- 29-years (Smith, 2010). Further, projections suggest that by 2015 mobile tablets will overtake desktop usage (IDC, 2011) and 80% of all people accessing the Internet will be using a mobile device (Ericsson, 2010). Consequently, mobile technology figures prominently in the future of higher education, particularly in its integration into teaching and learning.

The story of mobile learning is no longer a narrative about devices -- iPods, phones, tablets, PDAs, or similar "always connected" wireless machines (Johnson, et al., 2011). A NESTA Futurelab report asserts that learning activities incorporating mobile technology will move further out of the classroom and further into the learner's physical and virtual environments, amplifying learning to be….

Phoenix, Arizona's growing population exerts pressure on infrastructure and natural resources. This has ultimately impacted the environment.

The city authorities are bothered that the population trends could have negative impact on the environment, economy, and the general social welfare of the city residents. The authorities are particularly concerned that the population growth could possible lead to infrastructure deterioration, increase traffic congestion, and loss of open space. The…. [read more]

Expression of Interest in MSW Program Essay

… However, this aim is illuminated by full awareness of the fact that, while living conventionally can bring rewards, it can also result in a spirit-crushing lifestyle for those caught in the jaws of socio-economic structures that are not inclusive.

I believe it is critical for social workers to understand their role in efforts to end social injustice in all its many forms, particularly discrimination, oppression, and poverty. Social workers can take any number of avenues to address these enduring issues, including administrative practice, advocacy, community organizing, consultation…. [read more]

IMC Program Research Paper

… ¶ … Future of Advertising and Its Impact on Integrated Marketing Communications Programs

The traditional strategies marketers use to attract, sell and serve prospective customers and retain existing ones are going through a systemic, fundamental change today. The long-held beliefs of concentrating on product, pricing, promotional strategies and place or distribution (the 4Ps of marketing) are being challenged by the mercurial nature of customers today and how quickly their preferences are changing.

No longer can a product or service be marketed purely based on its functional value or worse, its features and purely physical attributes. Customers expect excellent experiences from products, augmented by personalization to their tastes and preferences (Ramaswamy, 2008). Marketing services is as much about defining realistic, high expectations as it is about…. [read more]


Talent Management at Bofa Case Study

… Identifying which stakeholders are left out would likely be a first objective underlying these achievement objectives if these assumptions are truly fundamental to Bank of America's executive talent development.

Two potentially effective approaches to meet the talent management challenges in the future

In the same way, these assumptions provide rich opportunities for potential improvement. If stakeholder ownership is key to supporting new executive development, then one approach would be to remove barriers to stakeholder ownership. The National Association of Female Executives reported that before 2007 at least, executive gender diversity was actually falling (24), so to the degree that Bank of America's total employment is female, improving executive diversity may increase stakeholder ownership. Five out of thirteen executives were women at Bank of America in…. [read more]


Management Philosophies Samsung Group Essay

Phoenix Bach Choir From Amateur to Professional Term Paper

… Professional Choirs in America: The Phoenix Bach Choir

Choirs are made up of beautiful voices, but they cannot perform unless there are several cohesive elements, locale, conductor, music and support. Choral conducting is a highly creative, but delicately balanced combination of talents. The conductor must tend to the needs of the singers, the audience for which he or she works and their own personal and artistic goals, meanwhile grappling with the demands of the music and the composer's intention in the performance of music. Choirs are made up of individual singers, each one responsible for their voice, experience and goals. Choral conductors, on the other hand may voice loudly their own experience, but they are personally embracing their career, whether or not it is successful,…. [read more]

Saying goodbye to fellow officers, mentors, and superiors, I felt like I was young again: invincible and eager to embark on a new path. Change is good for the soul; I knew that and in spite of my fears and worries I chose to leave the comfort of the familiar for the unknown. Having entered the Navy straight from high school, I never had the chance to pursue a higher education. Now is my opportunity and I very much look forward to filling in that gap in my life and obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology. When I first found out about the University….

… Aligning with another airline would increase loyal customers and secure the rewards program.

Step 6: Determining the Best Solution
