the company's dependence on one or a few product lines. Further growth opportunities are presented by global expansion. Presently, the company has production facilities in the U.S. and Mexico only. Expanding to other parts of North America and Latin America as well as Europe and Asia Pacific can significantly improve the company's position in the domestic and global market. The viability of international expansion is particularly informed by the strong growth the global toy market has exhibited in recent years. In the third quarter of 2015, for instance, global sales grew by 7%, the largest growth since 1999 (NPD… Continue Reading...

explicitly describe the applied interdisciplinary model as well as individual providers' roles. With expansion of practitioners' practice scopes for carrying out tasks historically disallowed to other health worker populations (for instance, nurses carrying out tasks historically done by doctors), concerns surface regarding care standards held against them legally. Some healthcare workers are worried about courts holding them (nurse practitioners and others having expanded roles) to care standards that apply to other professionals (e.g., doctors). But an analysis of Canada's case law indicates that courts are likely to continue assessing care standards individually, and will not likely apply any standard… Continue Reading...

Change Management

make the company process-focused. Parker (2010) states that process development during an organization's expansion may move two different ways. That is, they may be of a process-enabling nature, improving business operations and facilitating accommodation of the development, merger, or expansion. Meanwhile, process-inhibiting changes are those that, although required, offer no help to the company but rather, may end up hampering its operations (Wong, 2016). The application of chaos theory for explaining strategic institutional development reveals that strategic growth can only be strengthened with the emergence of order from chaos, prior to the introduction of changes; this corresponds to Parker's… Continue Reading...

Klemperers Diaries and National Socialism

financial anxieties that all Germans suffered when Germany began its expansion into Europe even while he also feared for his life and livelihood. He found himself estranged from the country he loved although once again his marriage gave him an odd, dual status given that he still experienced some protection as a result of his connection to Evan. [9: Ibid., 432.] A sense of disempowerment and disillusionment with his country haunts Klemperer's diary. Of course, all Jews suffered horrifically during this period of time but as a man who was assimilated and who had originally had high hopes for… Continue Reading...

Challenges The main challenge APRN education faces outside of the internal problems in educational institutions is the small number of preceptors and clinical sites available. Also, the capacity of educational institutions to effectively prepare students is limited by the additional requirements of specialty certification agencies and state regulations. On graduating from a Phd program, an APRN student is often met with a tenure process in educational institutions that… Continue Reading...

Expected value of the company within one year without expansion is as follows: = P (Low)*V (Low) + P (Normal)*V (Normal) + P (High)*V (High) = .30*20,000,000 + .50*25,000,000 + .20*43,000,000 =6,000,000 +… Continue Reading...

Nazi Persecution Of Jews

prisoners and mental patients. Expulsion was considered as well but the expansion of the country made this a hard sell because invading other countries, by itself, added significant numbers to the Jewish population. For example, the takeover of Poland led to an increase of two million Jews. The moderate functionalist position was to simply have the Jews removed from the "living space" of the master race. Of course, this is easier said than done when there are millions and millions of Jews. The general intention from the beginning was to remove the Jews via whatever means with as little… Continue Reading...

How Shopping Mall Have Gone International

on how to proceed with shopping mall management, development, maintenance, expansion, retail and so on. The ICSC provides them the opportunity to receive instruction and to network -- however, some of the education that is being given them is based on a misguided perspective, in which individuals foreign to the U.S. are assumed to have cultural approaches that nullify the North American methods. Latin American professionals are seeking, though, precisely an understanding of these methods and models so as to be able to better apply them in their own nations. Thus, Latin American professionals do not view themselves as… Continue Reading...

Pecking Order Versus Trade off Theories

works appropriately within industries that have room for growth and expansion. Mature sectors, which can practically project their future, such as Coca-Cola are unlikely to incur any losses by using external funding. For instance, as of 2014, Coke has a long-term debt of $20,000 million with a net income of $50,000 million (Agarwal, 2013). For the company, the debt ratio is optimal and maximizing its market capitalization value within their manageable debt levels. Coke has a long-term debt of less than a year's current net income. Therefore, a single year earnings could be used to settle the debt. As… Continue Reading...

through merging with other businesses (Segal-Horn & Faulkner, 2010). A merger can create significant benefits: synergy development, asset base expansion, customer base expansion, knowledge sharing, and acquisition of key talent (Hill & Jones, 2012). In the landscaping context, for instance, a company with specialty and experienced in soft landscaping can merge with a company with specialty and experience in hard landscaping to create a stronger company with expertise in both soft and hard landscaping. This would significantly improve the competitive position of the newly formed entity in the marketplace. Whereas a merger provides valuable benefits for the entities involved,… Continue Reading...

Disney Pixar Analysis

with Disney. As Disney now had greater control over Pixar and was willing to invest in its expansion, it wanted more films, which stretched Pixar. But the power dynamic is different with Disney being owner, in that it can demand more content from Pixar and provide the resources to make it happen. 2. There are several external factors that are important for Pixar. The first is technology. Pixar was one of the most important companies in terms of developing computer animation, and for the longest time it lead the field. But as computer animation comes down in price, more… Continue Reading...

Struggle Between Gods and Demons

gods and demons both and thereby escape the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. The story of "epic expansion" and Sukra, "guru of the demons" demonstrates how Hindu mythology resolves its own paradox of perpetual enmity (Doniger Hindu Myths). In this tale, Prahlada argues that the gods and demons are alike; they dwell in different domains but qualitatively their actions and motives reflect similar cosmic forces. They symbolize eternal cosmic balance. Ultimately they can be banished, the gods to heaven and the demons to hell, and only then can they live without enmity. It requires an external, higher force to… Continue Reading...

Mascenon knew they soon would as legislation was in the works to permit greater foreign investment in the country. Nestle's market share was high because of its individual packets of Nescafe being sold in small shops. Even though the product was viewed as a premium and its prices were high at the small shops, which were frequented by poorer people, this is still where it did its… Continue Reading...

Such a candidate base will offer the company access to a bigger skill base, using which it can recruit individuals bringing with them a broader array of problem solving strategies, abilities, competences, and experiences. Increased creativity: The presence of a culturally competent and diverse staff inspires individuals to think outside of their respective cultural mindsets and… Continue Reading...

Whigs Democrats and the Second Party System

qualms about committing genocide against the Native Americans in their quest for land acquisition and territorial expansion. Jackson hungered especially after the West and Southwest. The Whigs, on the other hand, wanted to strengthen the economic viability of the existing states and avoid complicating the slavery issue by adding additional territories. However sympathetic Whigs were toward abolitionism, neither the Whigs nor the Democrats had abolitionist leanings. The Democrats pursued a more aggressively states' rights stance on slavery, though. Both the Democrats and the Whigs made an impact on the nation, but the Democrats had by far the most adverse… Continue Reading...

Government’s Right to Spy

the law can be interpreted. There has been an expansion of the surveillance at all fronts regardless of the freedom created by the founders of the United States. The surveillance should make us safer without violating the liberties of the American Citizens. This paper is a critique to the right of the government to spy on the lives of its citizens the way it is done by the security apparatus. Reliance on government agencies as a secrete body of law has dire consequences. Americans are not interested in knowing the details of the ongoing sensitive intelligence and military activities.… Continue Reading...

Cross Cultural Impact Of China on Vietnam Today

is also important to note that there were other influences on Vietnam. Indeed, by the 19th century, Vietnam's southerly expansion meant the country absorbed so-called "Indianized" Southeast Asian peoples (e.g., Cambodians and the Malayo-Polynesian Chams) and intermarriages between these peoples and the Vietnamese had an inevitable impact that would have lasting influences unto the present day. Nowhere was this influence more profoundly experienced that in Vietnam's military strategies. For example, the author emphasizes that, "In warfare, Vietnamese rulers borrowed culturally from other Southeast Asian societies as much as from China. This was deliberate" (p. 24). The point is also… Continue Reading...

Return on Investment with Fall Prevention

home safety measures, environmental safety in the community, funding/reimbursement arrangements, expansion of evidence-based fall prevention programs, public awareness and education and public policy and advocacy (NCOA, 2016). As for very specific interventions that the NCOA advocates in terms of preventing falls, they suggest finding a good balance and exercise program, talking regularly to a healthcare provider, reviewing current medications with a doctor or pharmacist, keeping one's home safe, talking to family members and checking vision/hearing so as to make sure that hazards and challenges are both visible and hearable as they should be (NCOA, 2016). The amount of money… Continue Reading...

Choosing a Corporation over a Sole Proprietorship

he does plan to expand in the coming years -- and with expansion, the assumption is that profit will follow. Also, with expansion, risks go up -- and a corporate entity is better at mitigating risk than a sole proprietorship. A partnership is most likely not in West's interest either, as there is no evidence in the case study that he has a partner or wants one. This is not a joint-venture and while partnerships offer tax incentives, the corporation is taxed similarly to the partnership organization, so there is nothing lost in that sense. The only disadvantage to… Continue Reading...

Book Review Of Bethany Moreton’s “to Serve God and Walmart

position owing to its ability to ride the "conservative economic policy" wave in its expansion endeavors and employ the "Christian enterprise" concept to hire people who perceived economic service to be their calling. Of late, the company has witnessed much negative media scrutiny with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision of female workers' right to pursue a class action gender discrimination suit against the retail chain. Despite Walmart's status on the global scene, one must not forget the fact that it is essentially a product of rural Ozark. It is worth noting that the retailer is considered synonymous with Americanism's… Continue Reading...

European Union and Crime

the scale effect of legalized prostitution leads to an expansion of the prostitution market, increasing human trafficking, while the substitution effect reduces demand for trafficked women as legal prostitutes are favored over trafficked ones (Cho, Dreher, & Neumayer, 2012) The study further claims that the scale effect dominates the substitution effect and on average, countries where prostitution is legal experience larger reported human trafficking inflows than countries that criminalize the industry. The findings of studies such as this are based upon many different assumptions however. For example, although it could be construed as being largely pragmatic, the results are… Continue Reading...

Death and Faith from Existentialist Point Of View

idea of encompassing (das Umgreifende). It is debatable whether this inclusion had contributed to the expansion, and it may be an unintended act, or it may simply be ontology of existence. This was actually suggested as a basis of comparison with the previous existence problems. The 'Elucidation of Existence' volume II of Jasper's philosophy, is a very important one. It describes the existence concepts in a broad manner and constitutes it very clearly (Wildermuth, 2007). As per Jasper, "modes of being of the encompassing" and the existence of human is presented with their "logics of philosophy" that recurs in… Continue Reading...

Main Systems Of Human Body

space between ribs has a number of tiny intercostal muscles which aid the expansion and compression process of the diaphragm. The muscles may be segregated into the following two groups: the external and internal intercostals (Zimmermann, 2016). While the former exists on the surface of the latter, raising the ribs, increasing thoracic cavity size and bringing about air inhalation into the lungs, the latter represent the deeper muscle set, which press down the ribs and thorax cavity, forcing air out of the lungs.

The graduate program would equip me with knowledge and skills for dealing with conflict, fostering security, and administrating by providing an encouraging learning condition that is academically rigorous, active, and interdisciplinary. According to University of Massachusetts, Boston (2016), consequently, it would train me to be a thorough analyst and expand my leadership as an academic, researcher, and a practitioner. Global security interests me. From my analytical viewpoint, underdevelopment is caused majorly by public domain violent… Continue Reading...

Demand Planning

relationships with distributors, unnecessary costs, and poor financial performance emanating from poor demand planning may hinder market share growth, expansion, competitive advantage, and other long-term objectives. Conclusion Overall, demand planning is an important ingredient of organisational success. It influences supply chain effectiveness, capacity utilisation, engineering processes, inventory sufficiency, operational and administrative costs, as well as relationships with distributors and customers. These aspects affect organisational performance in either directly or indirectly, in the short-term or in the long-term. It is, therefore, imperative to ensure effective demand planning.

Muslim Americans and the Impact Of September 11th

the PNAC papers and the neo-conservatives themselves indicate. Oded Yinon's policy paper for Greater Israel's expansion, penned in the 1980s, Kristol's Weekly Standard and other works were all aimed at purging the Middle East of Arab influence and installing a WASP-Israeli stronghold.[footnoteRef:20] The effect of this type of racist policies are evident in the Middle East as war has ravaged the region (Iraq and Syria especially). In the U.S. the effects are felt sociologically, as racial profiling of "suspected" terrorists among the Arab and Muslim American population has led to greater fear within American communities.[footnoteRef:21] [20: Ferguson, Niall.

In general, the American economy has been in slow recovery for several years following the last recession. It is not known when a full-blown expansion will take place; there are few economists who are expecting one imminently. But regions can also experience business cycles. One of the important ramifications of this is that the gas stations purchased should be in different areas. If one area is struggling, then maybe another will be doing well. Geographic diversification can help offset the impacts of local… Continue Reading...

How to Grow the Economy

down, there are best practices that are generally held to be better than others when economic expansion is the desired outcome. Analysis The typical reason for economic expansionary policies is when an economy is emerging out of a recession. A good and recent example of this was the years during and after the Great Recession. Indeed, that massive financial valley started in roughly 2007 and the recession did not "end" until 2009. The economy grow at a consistent yet tepid pace despite very low interest rates that are just now starting to be raised. Even so, what was done… Continue Reading...

Boko Haram and Diffusion Of Innovation

question related to Nigerian domestic policy, particularly with regards to economic diversification, infrastructure improvements, and expansion of employment and other opportunities. We have already questioned whether Nigeria can better diversify its economy to render Boko Haram irrelevant, and encourage the evolution of economic sectors other than oil. Second, we can apply diffusion of innovation theory to the second research question related to deprivation theory. Diffusion of innovation theory can be used to highlight patterns of acceptance of radicalism in specific communities to answer the question of whether there is a threshold of unemployment rates, income rates, or GINI index… Continue Reading...

Negative Interest Rates Analysis

In general, the negative interest policy assists in boosting the aggregate demand because banks will be venturing in more investments. Moreover, negative interest rates make exchange rate depreciate providing incentives to move the capital to higher-yield investment jurisdictions. (Rostagno et al. 2016). Caballero et al. (2008) argue that negative interest rates assist in easing financial constraints that borrowers may face in the short run. Additionally, the policy can increase a re-distributional effect of monetary policy on income and wealth. The central banks also… Continue Reading...

Organizational Leadership

With swift economic transformations and organizations' attempts at market expansion, tax breaks, and labor cost reductions, a trend is being witnessed, of relocating businesses out of the country (Sanders, 2014). For ensuring this move's effectiveness, individuals who can adapt and redesign organizational operations are needed. Sociocentric thinking represents mankind's intrinsic inclination to form a narrow, prejudiced, group-focused opinion of the world, and to function in the world via unfair, prejudiced group beliefs, influences, interests, norms and group think (Paul & Elder, 2013). Our mind is naturally sociocentric and egocentric, but can also think logically and sensibly. For becoming a… Continue Reading...

and drought), and changing rainfall patterns. We have also observed increased rain and ocean acidification, desert expansion, as well as greater species endangerment. These occurrences have largely been linked to human activity, particularly air pollution, burning of fossil fuels, greenhouse gas emissions, industrialization, and deforestation. The issue is so pressing that it threatens the ability of future generations to sustain their lives, which is ethically unfair. Indeed, global warming threatens food security, human health, human and non-human survival, as well as socioeconomic stability in the future (Cummins, 2014; Justin, 2015). Addressing the problem, however, remains a major challenge in… Continue Reading...

the first mobile operator in the Middle East region. As the company instigated its expansion approach in 2003, Zain experienced immense growth rate in not only the Middle East, but also in Africa.

This was purposed to better mirror the company's improving position as a prominent multi-national mobile service provider with international objectives. A year later, the company made an even major stride by becoming the fourth biggest mobile operator around the globe… Continue Reading...

Supply and Demand

the same for the new location Taking into consideration the expansion of the delivery service into another market, I may need to set different prices in the new market, simply because the cost of gas might be much different. Bearing in mind the trend of the data prices indicated above, the prices per gallon that will be set in the new market will be higher than the prevailing ones. This is because the current costs are lower than the national average price per gallon for gasoline. The implication for this is that the new markets will have prices that are… Continue Reading...

Key Concepts in Economics

measure involuntary unemployment. The number of unemployed individuals will rely on the rate of expansion of work prospects, which in turn relies on the rate of growth of the economy, the production technique utilized, and government policies (Arnold, 2010). As pointed out in the article above, the unemployment rate in the American market has improved and declined to 4.9%. Part of the improvement in the aforementioned unemployment is in hidden unemployment. This can be defined as the unemployment that takes place when the work available to a certain workforce is insufficient to keep it fully employed so that some… Continue Reading...

How Diversification Can Help Ceos Financially

The hypothesis used by the authors: there would be a positive relationship between "performance and related entropy index" vis-a-vis diversification in Italy and the Netherlands (both developed countries), but no such relationship in Turkey (an emerging country) (83). That hypothesis proved inaccurate. The authors expected there would be no correlation between the diversification and performance in Turkey; it is an "emerging" country (many privatization… Continue Reading...

Auteur Theory Application

film auteur. Auteur Theory as a Methodology Subsequently, Andrew Sarris made a greater expansion on the auteur theory, and established more distinctive principles and measures of what it takes to be considered an auteur. Sarris recommended not just the unique personality and individuality of the director as a key criterion of being an auteur, but also the decisive meaning exuded from the content. In particular, Sarris (1968) makes the argument that regardless of the various hindrances set upon directors such as relinquishing control, the capacity of some directors to get through such hindrances is proof that in actual sense, the director… Continue Reading...

Facilities such as supermarkets and hypermarkets constitute just about 50% of the sales for fast-moving consumer goods. In addition, being set in the food industry, there is less likelihood that the economy will have a depressing impact on Americana's business operations.

Debt Versus Equity for Start Up

and to retain all of their earnings to plow into the expansion of the company. Further, beyond the tax consequences there is the issue of control. Equity financing that comes at the expense of control is usually undesirable in a startup. It very much depends on what the source of the equity funding would be. If the equity is raised by the partners and would not dilute the control they need to grow the business according to their vision, then it is recommended that equity should be used, in order to encourage maximum retained earnings (Deeb, 2014).

Is over Population Happening in the World

long-term low birth-rates are causing populations to dwindle. The issue here is that Malthus never saw the expansion of birth control to the extent that it has overtaken much of the developed world. As of 2010, nearly half of all women capable of bearing children were using some form of birth control according to the study conducted by Darney and Speroff. What this indicates is that in many countries, overpopulation is not a problem; on the contrary, the opposite is happening -- populations are decreasing especially in developed regions. In other parts of the world, such as densely packed cities… Continue Reading...

Although by the time Septimus Severus came to power, Rome might have already heard its own death knoll due to the increasing encroachment of localized political uprisings, but Septimus Severus gave Rome a confidence boost and perhaps a false sense of imperial security.

Federal Policy on Afordable Care Act

has increased the number of Americans with health insurance cover and this expansion covers the veterans, meaning more veterans are now covered than before. The ACA is also seen to have handled the dysfunctional individual insurance market since now more Americans, who were previously locked out of buying their own insurance due to preexisting conditions or since the cover did not cater for the service they needed are now able to buy the insurance at the same cost as the healthier people, hence benefiting the veterans (Rowner J., 2016).

As evidence, Westad (2007) cites examples from as early as Thomas Jefferson's intervention in African piracy, one of the earliest examples of American interventionism. The United States did go through periods of relative isolationism for its own self-interest, partly motivated also by international consternation of its ongoing practice of slavery long after the practice had been abolished in Europe. Even when the United States claimed to be disinterested in global affairs, it viewed itself as having the "duty to assist" other nations in their pursuit… Continue Reading...

It is not too far-fetched to envision a world in the not-too-distant future when the extremely wealthy will be able to essential purchase immortality in the form of identical clones. Being immortal will likely further increase the gap between the haves and have-nots in human society, making the potential for the use of negative eugenics even more likely by those who can live forever against those who cannot. Conclusion Coined in 1883 by English statistician and mathematician Francis Galton, the word “eugenics”… Continue Reading...

The West was just as interested in that: they were hungry for the oil rich region of the Middle East and the resource-rich region in Asia. Stalin’s Berlin blockade in 1948 was his response to the West’s accusations of Soviet aggression: Stalin saw the Western powers as infiltrative and destabilizing. The UK and the US airlifted supplies to Berlin, and in 1949 the blockade was lifted—and by then the Grand Alliance was all but dead: it was clear the sides were not going… Continue Reading...

Citizen burden when it comes to funding these expenses, in the form of growing taxes and increased long-term loans, constitutes the chief effect of this upsurge in governmental health expenses. Besides decreasing families’ and organizations’ earnings allocated to other activities, growth in tax gives rise to incentives to participate in activities that help evade these growths’ impacts (Sommers & Gruber, 2017). Greater governmental borrowing for funding the above growth similarly affects resource availability for other undertakings. With interest rates mounting on account… Continue Reading...

If one thinks about how this applies to the athletic footwear and apparel industry, a company that specializes in soccer might prefer to focus attention on nations where that sport is most popular. As an example, such a company might prefer to target Brazil among the BRICS because soccer is the dominant sport there. It is not… Continue Reading...

happened, the conversion of the disciples and the sudden expansion of the Church through their vigorous and relentless preaching (preaching in many cases through persecution and even unto their own deaths).
