The Effect Of Globalization on Business

by using online or ecommerce solutions. For example, Amazon and netflix have taken retail shopping and video viewing to new levels never before achieved -- and that is thanks to globalization, itself effected by the rapid advancement of communications technology -- i.e., the Internet and the power to connect one end of the planet with another. Producers, organizations, businesses and merchants have all found that online business is the new way to market to consumers who live beyond one's national or local borders. Globalization allows access to these consumers -- and the Internet is one of the easiest ways… Continue Reading...

Amazon Vs Ebay

main sales items remain relatively unchanged; Amazon has however ventured into acting as a streaming service -- like netflix or Hulu -- and is essentially attempting to do everything that any other online business does. (It even recently got into the mortgage business through a brief joint venture with Wells Fargo). eBay's major suppliers range from anyone with an item that will ship to small and even large business owners. Customers are the same -- though Amazon is now selling cloud space to clients -- which accounts for its actual income in recent quarters. Three Profitability Ratios Three profitability… Continue Reading...

Cultural Phenomenon Of Stranger Things

Stranger Things is a television show on netflix that recounts the story of a missing boy, a frantic mother, and three friends looking for an answer. The show is a pastiche of popular 80's movies and television shows that featured monsters like E.T. and telekinetic children like Charlie in Firestarter. While the show does not hit on anything original, it does manage to hit a nerve among fans and has swept the nation with its sweet whispers of nostalgia. The show perhaps invites people to reach for their own ideologies… Continue Reading...

Activity Based Costing at Amazon

a stiffly competitive environment. The company competes with equally powerful players like eBay, Apple, netflix, and Google. Further competition comes from retailers such as Walmart, Best Buy, Sears, and Target. By adopting the ABC system, Amazon can counter competitive rivalry. The company would be better placed to offer better prices, thereby attracting and retaining customers. In an environment with multiple players, the importance of competitive pricing cannot be overemphasized. While still keen on quality and value for money, customers desire affordable prices. ABC provides a valuable way through which such a balance can be achieved. Competitive pricing would in… Continue Reading...

Use Of Smartphones and Sleep Time

noted the smartphone allowed them to watch videos on Youtube and netflix. Some stated they spent an hour or so watching people they are subscribed to or their favorite shows. When asked about homework, they would go online and search for information and research. However, they would also spend time playing games or again, on social media. The answers in the Appendix section will provide the evidence for negative correlation between screen time and sleep time. Discussion The face-to-face interview focused on several themes. First was identifying why teenagers use smartphones so often, every day. The second was discussing… Continue Reading...

Kings County Library Changes Needed

and such. Indeed, we are in the age of Youtube, netflix and beyond. Expanding the movie selection is a good idea but allowing people to rent videos online via a license (much like Vudu and Amazon Prime do) and to purchase them would be an option as well. Allowing onsite access to Youtube could also be a boon. People could be given access to lists of suggestions for given subjects and the library itself could market and support videos that are within a certain realm of interest. If done correctly, this could allow for a revenue stream or two… Continue Reading...

Movie Theaters Needing to Evolve

already present and already wreaking havoc. Further, the depth and breadth that firms like netflix and other streaming or video rental option firms have is clear and obviously present. Threat of Substitutes The big problem for the movie theater industry is that the options that are present in the home very much align with (or even surpass) the performance and experience that can be offered in theaters. Even when that is not the case, some people simply do not wish to go to a theater, do not feel it is worth the money or any other litany of reasons.… Continue Reading...

Should Audiences Be Quiet in the Theater

to plays if they can learn the same lessons by watching something on netflix? Or is going to play something unique? I think the latter is probably the case. Finding Jim Crow This chapter on "Finding Jim Crow" was interesting. It described how a prominent blackface actor created the Jim Crow character. What is interesting about this phenomenon is that the creator of the character rooted it in a background where whites and blacks actually lived and worked together. The creator was from Manhattan and there, as one critic put it, whites and blacks co-habitated on the stage and… Continue Reading...

Law Enforcement Abuses in Investigations

years now as a result of this dereliction of duty. It reminds me of the netflix show Making of a Murderer, where a person is selected to be guilty by police because they have a grudge against them. In this case, the police selected Wagstaffe and Connor for an undisclosed reason, though they said it was because the informer (prostitute and heroin addict) identified them. However, the church-going woman who said her car was untouched all night and said the hair band was hers was not allowed to submit her testimony. This is a very problematic issue and law… Continue Reading...

Apples Stock Movement 2017

others stocks are surging in spite of a lack of real earnings—stocks like Tesla and netflix, for example. Plus, since Apple is one of the FANG stocks—Facebook, Apple, netflix and Google—that have been driving the Nasdaq and inviting big investors to purchase the stock even at these all-time high valuations, I assumed investors would continue to buy in. Interest rates are still low and investors seeking a significant return really have no choice right now but to buy into the stocks that are driving the market—stocks like Apple. If the Fed actually decides to really start raising rates significantly,… Continue Reading...
