Capital State Arena
June 4, 2012

The text stated the theatrical lighting system is a complex system of lights, controllers, and lighting adjustments located inside of the gymnasium arena on the campus of Capital State University (Benton, 2010). The gymnasium is mainly used for basketball events, but will hold commencement exercises and other university sports in the future. That is the main reason the gymnasium is in need of enhancing its lighting system. The arena is overdue for some lighting adjustments because it has yet to be changed over the years.
In order for this project to begin, it first must start with the purchasing department who has requests from two suppliers and a possibility of a third supplier. They have offered to make the renovation to the theatrical lighting system to have accommodated the different events. “The current technology was specified; the system will be leased out at a rate of $2000.00 per day plus operator expenses” (Benton, p.461). Some of the console features to consider is the lighting consoles needs are being users-friendly. Its needs to be programmable lighting system, and have room to expand since eventually additional lights might be added. The purchasing department also wants to purchase a theatrical lighting system that can be easily upgraded, equiped with a warranty, maintenance, and the repair of parts.
After evaluating the three bids from the different manufacturers I would recommend the ETC Company. Even though the ETC cost the more, it was ranked the best value based on the ease of use and service. The ETC has the highest the sale among the other two manufacturers. The ETC cost is $10,080.00 more than the Leprecon and $36,780 more than the Strand. Also the ETC sales and history share history is the largest among the other two vendor. The ETC sales are…...

First Mariner Arena

...We Americans today have taken a lot from the Romans, but the main thing that we have gotten from them is their structure of the buildings used for entertainment. They used coliseums for the use of amusing the town people. They would hold gladiator shows, or fights till the death as well as chariot races and killing fugitives for the use of others amusement. Another thing that they used the buildings for where; dinner theater shows for the upper class and emperors and empresses. The structure of these buildings where really important because they had to hold a lot of people due to the fact of that was usually the only means of entertainment. The building that I chose that I feel as though portrayed this is the first mariner arena. The first mariner arena is built as if it was a coliseum but in particular the pantheon; and it is used to host plays as well as the circus and other forms of entertainment in Baltimore. Although it does use arches the inside of the building uses the same structure which is kind the bowl shape. I feel as though they use this shape to fit as many people inside as possible. Another thing that I have noticed the structure for the hallways or tunnels used for the entertainment to enter in has not changed much either. Also whoever the entertainment is for that particular event is usually put in the center of the arena or coliseum so that everyone can see even if you are sitting up high. So in conclusion a lot of our buildings used for entertainment where......

London Olimpics Basketball Arena

...International Strategic Project Management BBIM604 In –Module assessment – Semester 1 -2011/12 By Sergey Bogdanovich Basketball Arena [pic] Executive summary Basketball is one of the major Olympic sports. And Olympic presentation of it should be as good as possible, as millions of people will watch the action from East London closely. They all want an extraordinary exhibition and performance, so the constructions of a top quality Basketball Arena, which will successfully host the games, require a lot of attitude. It is essential to understand that the arena must be a part of an Olympic vision and should address all the proposals and ideas which Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and London as a capital of Great Britain want to introduce during games and after them. It required a lot of effort, knowledge and an experience to achieve the overall goal in delivering basketball arena. In the end the project become one of the biggest of its type ever built for such an event. Several firms, agencies and organisations worked closely with each other to deliver a successful result on each stage of the project. Introduction The Basketball arena was a unique challenge. It was the first time a 12000 seat temporary arena with a span of almost 100 m had been built in UK. Because of the size, scale, complexity and the cost of the venue, it went through considerable scrutiny, deliberation and change throughout the course of 2006...

The Arena

...The Arena The short story ”The Arena”, written in 2008 by Martin Golan, circles around an unnamed protagonist and narrator, who is driving his son to the Arena, where he is to make his bus for the lacrosse trip. The themes of the story involve the strong bond between child and parent, escaping ones past and self-acknowledgement. The assignment partly focuses on the way the story is structured and on the use of contrasts as well as an interpretation and analysis of the story. “The Arena” is written with a special focus on the protagonist, who is the father of two children, one with his current wife, and one who suffered an early death with his last wife. It takes place in the suburbs of New Jersey and the protagonist has been living there for some time. The story is of little dialogue as the story wanders and dwells in the mind of the protagonist, as an inner dialogue of questioning his self-realization: “… the smell of toast, of longing itself, or is it of memory?”. In the start of the story, he describes a Arena in town, in which he is going to with his son: “It’s a circular, roughly built structure of steel and cinder block that houses an ice-skating rink… I could never relax… The Arena somehow manages to be too cold and too hot at the same time….”. He seems quite discomforted and ambivalent by the surroundings of the Arena, which is somehow connected to his past. The drive he and his son is on to the Arena starts out early in the morning, and as the story proceeds...

Simulation with Arena

...Simulation with Arena Assignment G2: a multi-echelon inventory policy Christopoulou Evdoxia Kuodzevicius Bernardas 101283 534893 10/12/2012 Preliminaries The given Arena model is a steady-state model, because there is no clear event that could indicate the end of model run and actually we are interested in the long run behavior of the system represented by the given model. Before we start to do the main parts of the assignment, that is design of experiments and optimization, we conduct some preliminary experiments to check if the model could be modified in order to get better results. First we set the number of replications to 30 and we choose the length of each replication be 730 days (two years), which we think should be enough to reach the steady-state. When we run the model with these settings, we get that the mean of the main response variable - average cost - is 568.4 and the half width is equal to 2.37. Although the confidence interval is not extremely wide taking into account the relatively high value of mean, we still perform a check whether it is possible to get more precise results by using common random numbers. To figure out if the model would benefit from the use of CRN we perform a pilot study. In this study we need to have two different scenarios and then we can decide whether it is useful to use CRN by checking the following inequality: { } { } { } and if this inequality holds, then it is worth using CRN in the model. In our case the scenarios differ in...

Pinnacle Bank Arena

...Paper #3 Hotel tax. Car Rental tax. Bar and restaurant tax. This is what Lincoln has increased to help fund the new Haymarket Arena. 350 million dollars is the bottom line amount when someone asks how much this new arena costs. That would include the cost to move railroad tracks, buy railroad property, build a new Amtrak station, build new roads, the arena itself, and three parking garages and two surface lots. I am going to look at the details of the new arena and the effects this new arena will have on the Lincoln community. Targeted to open for the 2013 Nebraska Basketball season, the new arena will be a much-needed addition for Lincoln. Currently the arena we have, Pershing Center, is really old and beat up. It’s time for change in the capital city. As for the Huskers, they have been playing in the Bob Devany Sports Center since 1976. That is quite some time to play in the same arena. There are no suites in the Bob either. In the new arena, there will be about 15,000 club seats, with 2,000 left for the students. When Executive Associate Athletic Director Marc Boehm talks about the arena he emphasizes branding. This is important to the University because it will be the new home for Nebraska men’s and women’s basketball teams. With recruiting being as huge as it is these days, the importance of a big ‘N’ on the outside of the arena was very important. On the inside the renderings also show a lot of dedication to the University. Whether it’s banners from the...

Philips Arena

...The Philips Arena Brandon Rabon One of my favorite events was when I went to the Philips Arena to watch the Hawks and the Heat play. My friend and I went on a trip to Atlanta to go see our first NBA game. This was very exciting to go watch the most exciting team in the NBA play. We really didn’t know what to expect but assumed it would be like any other venue just like the Colonial Life Arena. The drive there was nice and it was pretty easy to spot the venue in the middle of the city. Parking was a different story all together. It took us probably 30 minutes to try to find a spot. They had a few police officers trying to direct traffic but there could have been more. We ended up having to parking like three or four blocks away from the venue and just walked there. They could have improved parking by using some of the parking garages around the venue. While we were walking back I saw at least two or three garages that were not being used and just shut down for the night. Arriving to the venue, the size of the Philips Arena was amazing. They haven’t opened the doors yet so there were a lot of people waiting to get in and seated. The crowd management up to this point is handled well because everyone got into lines fairly quickly once the doors opened. The tickets were scanned easy and quickly to get everyone in. We got into the lobby and then upstairs to the concessions portion of the arena. The signage in the arena could have been a lot better. It took me 10- 15 minutes to...

Swans Ice Arena

...Swan’s Ice Arena Case Swan’s Ice Arena is the only regulation sized hockey ice-skating rink in a city whose population is 450,000 and located in the Northern U.S. where hockey is a popular pastime. The owner, David Swan, has a successful business strictly renting the rink to hockey leagues and charging admissions to games along with concession sales. David wants to expand his business and include skating for the public as he sees a very high profit potential with that. He has made investments in making his rink more into a skating environment and the results are dismal, so he is questioning his choices and wants to know is options going forward. One thing Mr. Swan can look at is how he segmented his market. His bread and butter is hockey and alienating a core group such as this does nothing for his loyalty factor. This could lead to other arenas being built that support maybe more than one hockey rink specifically for hockey and he would lose that part of his business. In Mr. Swan’s business 25% of his customers on a weekend skating night are under fourteen. In the United States, 20% of the population is from age 0-14 ("The World Factbook," 2014). This represents a good chunk of his business during that time and also should not be alienated. Children 14 and under and the parents of these kids would value the public skating a lot more than young adults 14 and older simply because in this generation, young adults have so many more entertainment options available to them....

State

... and capital and the rise of many international institutions have all combined to circumscribe the freedom of action of states: however, the state remains the basic political unit of the world, as it has been since the 16th century. No doubt affected by the recent English Civil War, Hobbes hypothesized that humanity's natural state was a violent, asocial "war of every man against every man" in which life is "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short." Driven by their fear of death amid this unrestrained, competitive individualism, men enter into a social contract and establish a state, in effect giving up their natural freedoms in exchange for order and safety. The resulting all-powerful state is symbolized by the biblical monster Leviathan. Still, Hobbes allows some exceptions to this submission, arguing that men retain the fundamental right to self-preservation that underlies the social contract. If obeying the ruler's order means giving up their lives, or if the ruler fails to adequately protect them, men may disobey. Furthermore, in any given area of behavior, individuals remain free to do as they please so long as the ruler has not specifically indicated otherwise. In 1690 John Locke carried on the social contract tradition in his Second Treatise of Civil Government. He too envisions a state of nature, but it is much less grim than the version portrayed by Hobbes. Where Hobbes saw a condition of violence and terror, Locke perceived mere "inconveniences." In nature,......

Roman Arena

...The Roman games and the value of life. The Roman games, or ludi, were held for the entertainment of the Roman people and played a significant role in ancient Roman culture. In the amphitheater, gladiators battled against wild beasts or engaged in combat with other gladiators. Such events were used to “elevate status” and to create “interaction between the ruler and the ruled”, highlighting the importance the Romans placed on rank and hierarchy. The ludi represented Rome’s dominance over its enemies but at what cost? It celebrated the fearlessness and power of the warriors and the state but also revealed their viciousness and disregard for the living. The act of killing, the crowd’s behavior, and even the arena itself all demonstrate how the Roman games devalue life, which is what this essay will explore. Human beings have an unusual fascination with violence but the idea of watching people die for sport is still shocking. The practice of watching deaths actually originates from the Christian ‘good death’, wherein friends and family gather to witness a loved one’s departure to a better place. “Death by public execution was an echo, even a mirror, of the Christian ‘good death’” in that it was a public event and was presided over by clergymen. However, the religious and solemn atmosphere cannot be found in a Roman arena. Le Bon suggests that in a crowd “a man descends several rungs in the ladder of civilization. Isolated, he may be a cultivated individual; in a crowd, he...

Capital State Arena

...The case is about the new capital state Arena on the campus of Capital State University which will be mainly used for Basket ball and also be used for other sporting events. So the new Arena which takes the place of the St Patrick Arena will need new console lighting system . In order for this project to begin, it first must start with the purchasing department who contacted two suppliers via telephone and after searching for other sources by a re-view a possibility of a third supplier was uncovered. To decide among these three consoles some of the console features are to be considered. The console must be users-friendly, and expandable since eventually additional lights might be added.The purchasing department also wants to purchase a theatrical lighting system that can be easily upgraded, equipped with a warranty, maintenance, and the repair of parts.   After evaluating the three bids from different manufacturers I would recommend ETC Company. Even though the ETC cost the more, it ranked the best value based on the ease of use and service. The ETC sales are $19,000,000 and the market share is 59%.The ETC has the highest sale and market share compare to other two manufacturers. The ETC cost to install this lighting system is $96,777, which is more than Strand Lighting and Leprecon. This would be a great invest even though it is the most expensive. ETC is a more satisfactory supplier and provides the buyer a great need of flexibility in the service of the product. As the......

The Arena

... his son in a traffic accident is still haunting him and he struggles to keep the past and present seperated. Despite attending counseling groups and trying to regain their old lives and habits, the narrator and his first wife feels an emptyness in everything they do together. Even though ”it wasn’t from lack of love” the narrator and his wife had decided that they could not stay together. The short story’s main litterary feature is the changing sections of past and present which truly ephasizes the internal struggle of the narrator. Sometimes the change is clear ”When Willie came into my life […]” other times, it is much more subtle ”At that moment I feel my wife turn in bed, rolling over so her hips no longer jut up in the sheet. This was strange: after we lost Willie […]”. This slightly confusing structure, clearly reflects the narrator’s state of mind and makes it easier for the reader to relate, rather than just having the narrator explain how troubled he is. Another frequently utilized feature is the use of contrasts. In the beginning when describing the Arena he says “The Arena somehow manages to be too cold and too hot at the same time […]” and furthermore explains how he feels a physical discomfort but at the same time eased by seeing his child’s boundless delight. The contrasts are used to describe his equivocal thoughts, making hope and a bright future the traits of his living son, while Willie seems like an anchor of sorrow dragging the father in the wrong...

The Effect of State Income Tax Apportionment and Tax Incentives on New Capital Expenditures

...JATA Vol. 25, Supplement 2003 pp. 1–25 The Effect of State Income Tax Apportionment and Tax Incentives on New Capital Expenditures Sanjay Gupta and Mary Ann Hofmann ABSTRACT: This study examines how variations in states’ corporate income tax regimes affect new capital investment by business. Using U.S. state-aggregated data from 1983 to 1996, we find in pooled and fixed-effects regressions that new capital expenditures by corporations in the manufacturing sector are decreasing in the income tax burden on property (measured as the product of the statutory tax rate and the property factor weight), and increasing at a decreasing rate in investment-related tax incentives. The effect of the income tax burden on property is more pronounced for states mandating unitary taxation or the throwback rule. Triangulating our empirical findings with prior analytical and simulation studies suggests the following hierarchy for the relative importance of major attributes of state corporate income tax regimes: the unitary or throwback requirement is most influential on incremental capital investment, followed by apportionment weights and tax rates, and, finally, investment-related incentives. Keywords: state taxation; apportionment formula; tax incentives, unitary business principle, throwback rule. JEL Classification: H20; H71. INTRODUCTION he purpose of this study is to provide empirical evidence on the effects of variations in states’ corporate income tax regimes on new...
