An essay on cheetahs
'Brilliant', 'Quite Good', 'What?', these are just some of the comments made recently in the press regarding cheetahs. I find my self constantly drawn back to the subject of cheetahs. While it is becoming a hot topic for debate, it is important to remember that ‘what goes up must come down.’ It still has the power to shock the over 50, who are likely to form a major stronghold in the inevitable battle for hearts and minds. Relax, sit back and gasp as I display the rich tapestries of cheetahs.

Social Factors

Society begins and ends with cheetahs. When blues legend 'Bare Foot D' remarked 'awooooh eeee only my dawg understands me' [1] he could have been making a reference to cheetahs, but probably not. While the western world use a knife and fork, the Chinese use chopsticks. Of course cheetahs cleary plays a significant role amongst the developing middle classes.

Primarily cheetahs builds trust among the people. Society is powered by peer pressure, one of the most powerful forces in the world. As long as peer pressure uses its power for good, cheetahs will have its place in society.

Economic Factors

Our world is driven by supply and demand. We will study the Custard-Not-Mustard model. For those of you unfamiliar with this model it is derived from the Three-Amigos model but with greater emphasis on the outlying gross national product.


Clearly the graphs demonstrates a strong correlation. Why is this? Of course inflation will eventually break free from the powerful influence of cheetahs, but not before we see a standardised commercial policy for all. Many analysts fear a subsequent depression.

Political Factors

Machiavellian politics is rife. Are our leaders justified in pursuing and maintaining political power? Comparing international relations since the end of the century can be like observing cheetahsilisation, as it's become known, and one's own sense of morality.

It is always enlightening to consider the words of the famous political Odysseus Bootlegger 'The success of any political system can only truly be assessed once the fat lady has sung.' [2] Amazingly, he new nothing of cheetahs until he was well into his thirties. If our political system can be seen as a cake, then cheetahs makes a good case for being the icing.

Is cheetahs politically correct, in every sense? Each man, woman and to a lesser extent, child, must make up their own mind.

In summary, cheetahs must not be allowed to get in the way of the bigger question: why are we here? Putting this aside its of great importance. It enriches, applauds greatness and never hides.

Here with the final word is Hollywood's Mariah Zeta-Jones 'I wouldn't be where I am today without cheetahs.' [3]

Mountain Due Case

...Mountain dew: Selecting New Creative If I were Scott Moffitt, I would have selected the following three creative concepts: Cheetah: The main reason I like the Cheetah concept is its adventurous show. I would like to analyze the concept in 2 perspectives: Customer and Company. As far as customer perspective is concerned, I believe customers will retain this ad for a longer time. Main reason is the involvement of wild life and the daring nature of the boy. Usually wild cats are a symbol of power and speed. People specially the young lot are really fond of watching National Geographic where the most seen videos are of wild cats attacking other herbivores for their food. Conversely, the boy in the ad is so daring that he not only has high speed to catch the Cheetah but also so daring enough to put his hand in the mouth of Cheetah. Similarly in company’s perspective this ad meets the brand communication strategy of Mountain Dew. Young boy on bicycle shows that an 18 year old boy is fun loving and excited to find his dew. It also depicts the energizing quality of the drink. The friends of the daring boy who are standing on the other side are enjoying the exhilarating experience. Another benefit of having cheetah in the ad would be to attract the African American people, since wildlife has some relation to Africa and people can relate to this experience. Labor of Love: It is believed that humor is one of the most effective tools to gain mind share of the consumers.......

...remind us of cute teddy bears. It is easy to see why the Koala is one of Australia's favorite mammals.  THE CHEETAH   Cheetahs are found scattered through eastern Africa and a region of southwestern Africa; They roam 9,600 square miles of Serengeti ecosystem - made up of grassland, thorn scrub and scattered patches of trees. Cheetahs are carnivorous; they hunt gazelles, antelopes, impala, young zebra and other small animals. They must kill and eat a little over 6 pounds of food every day, but only need to drink water about every 4 days. They are listed as endangered and only live for 7-8 years in the wild and are the only members of the big cat family that cannot roar.  Instead they purr like house cats, especially when grooming or resting together.  Cheetahs can purr, bark, growl, and hiss.  They can even chirp, mimicking some bird sounds, perhaps to attract them. In the Hindi language "cheetah" means "spotted one" and they are the fastest animal on land. Adult cats have medium to small black spots on a yellowish gray or tawny background. Like giraffes, no two cheetahs have the same arrangement of spots. There may be a small amount of white on their chests and under the chin. From behind, cheetahs coats look completely black. They have small rounded ears, set far apart and black tear-shaped streaks extend from the corner of their eye to their upper lip. Cheetah cubs are born with a special coloration to camouflage them in the bush where they will stay hidden for two......

Learning Activity Two

... Professor Monica Hardin HUMN 101 Learning Activity Two The myth about the non-retract ability of the cheetahs’ claws and the tear marks is an interesting gene that has always been told in my family from one generation to another. According to the myth, the cheetah and the leopard were once great friends. One day, they went out together to look for food. After travelling for more than 3 hours, they noticed gazelles grazing from a distance and agreed that the cheetah would go into the open land and chase the gazelles to the forest while the leopard would lay waiting in the forest and make a kill as the gazelles passed by. The cheetah spent more than 4 hours diverting the gazelles into the forest. Very late in the evening, the leopard rushed into the already tied gazelles, pounced on one and climbed with it to one of the huge baobab trees. The cheetah tied as it was, looked at the leopard enjoying the meal, but could not climb the tree. He tried to use its claws to climb the tree for the whole night till the claws could not retract back and due to the pain, tears rolled down its cheeks. This is why the cheetahs’ claws are not retractable and the tear marks on its cheeks to date. The leopard however, had to come down after the meal was over to hunt alone from then henceforth. Nonetheless, the myth about non retractability of the cheetahs’ claws as well as the tear marks has greatly changed due to the heritability information currently known. That is,......

Mountain Dew

...The two best ad concepts I think are Mock Opear and Cheetah. Mock Opera: This concept is focus on target audience, male teenagers, 18 year-old epicenter, because many of them are fans of Queen. The elements this commercial are Retro music, alternative sports. The whole idea is humorous and irreverence, the exhilaration and excitement brand images are expressed. The idea is simple and core concise, a parody of the Queen’s song. It’s unexpected; the Dew Dudes are Queens, and concrete, because Dew dudes are stands like the cover of Queen’s album. There is no whole story behind it but still emotional. Audience could feel funny and exciting. Cheetah: this commercial target the audience, characters in the ad are teenagers. The brand personality, exhilaration and fun are expressed, there are mountain bikes in the show, and audience would feel adventurous, athletic, wild and daring, so it is emotional. The whole idea is simple, even the cheetah like the mountain dew, good taste aspect is expressed as well. It’s not very concrete, but unexpected, cheetah drinks Mountain Dew. A story behind it and connected. And I think the best one is the Die or Dew. The Mock Opera one is more impressive. Compare to the Cheetah one, Mock Opera has a closer relationship to the target audience. Not only teenagers who love sports, but also teen love music and the Queen. And this is more simple and unexpected, so it is easy for audience to remember. Many people are familiar to the album and the song......

...which the fur is retrieved and therefore  become a sign of high quality fashion, according to the fashion industry. There are two cheetahs in this ad, one adult and one child in their natural habitat. However, both have a tag on their backs, one with the letter S and the other with the letters XL, indicating a size much like one would see on a shirt. In the top right corner of the advertisement the quote "Fashion claims more victims than you think" is printed in small, white letters (World Wildlife Fund (WWF), 2011). As an advertisement the WWF is using this picture to directly target fashion forward citizens by appealing to human pathos and the lack of logos found in animal cruelty while using a small amount of text to strengthen the argument. The direct link of the cheetahs to a piece of clothing is the main claim of the advertisement, which works to combat animal cruelty.             Fashion forward citizens are often times the people wearing the newest trends and styles. They are also often times the people who can afford the expensive designer styles, including leather and fur. By consequence, the fur wearers are a direct audience of the advertisement. The clever use of shirt tags on the backs of the animals is a reference to fur coats, linking what would be an inanimate article of clothing, a fur coat, directly to a living creature, the cheetah. By doing so, the fur wearers are able to see the life that the fur coat has an immediate impact on. Pathos is the use of......

Mountain Dew Study Case

...adventurous message are the ones to deliver the best results for PepsiCo. According to the costumer’s characteristics and the criteria’s above I’ve selected the following ads: Cheetah, Dew or Die and Mock Opera. Cheetah: This campaign features a chase in the wild nature. It is very dynamic, adventurous and “attention grabber” (V). It deserts the extreme sports theme that has become quite common, but preserves the danger and excitements it represents. Whether it is extreme sports or wild nature chase, the dew dude operates on Mountain Dew and high adrenaline. It creates an emotional thrill and conveys an exciting and enthusiastic way of living (Segment’s psychographic)(E). The campaign addresses the targeted segment, and captures their way of being: taking risks, looking for excitements, and enjoying adventures. It uses the Dew Dude who speaks their language (I+L). In addition, the chase uses a mountain bike which is coherent with previous extreme sport ads (L) Dew or Die: We encounter a dynamic plot full of drama and action, in addition to new sexy elements (dew dude saves the world and gets the girl-target audience can easily relay to) (V+I), that reminds us of the Austin Powers movies which were popular and current around that time (I). The campaign creates an energetic atmosphere, similar to Cheetah, with a different kind of extreme chase (E). Similar to previous ads, we meet the dew dude, and are exposed to elements of extreme sports (L), yet the thrilling......

Mountain Dew Case Analysis most three months to design, produce, and finalize these ads so they were all in with the concepts they were given. The five finalists were Labor of Love, Cheetah, Dew or Die, Mock Opera, and Showstopper. The Labor of Love advertisement was built on humor. It revolved around the birth of a Mountain Dew drinker who gets caught in a baseball glove when he shoots out of his mother. The Cheetah idea was built on exaggeration of performance. One of the “Dew Dudes” chases down a cheetah on a mountain bike and ends up catching the cheetah that stole his Mountain Dew. The Dew or Die concept was revolved around drama and some sex appeal. Men attempt to save the world while performing numerous daredevil type activities while going down a mountain. During the adventure they run into attractive women, become sidetracked, and still end up saving the world. The Mock Opera was based on a parody of the popular Queen song Bohemian Rhapsody and also involved extreme sports. This ad portrayed everything that Mountain Dew has stood for in the past. The showstopper concept revolved around extravagance as the title shows. Choreographed dancers as silver clad extreme sports athletes perform for the “Dew Dudes” while the dudes are directing (Holt 9). Of these concepts the two that stand out the most are Cheetah and the Mock Opera. The cheetah ad was different than any previous ad the brand had which is a way to attract newer customers. The Mock opera is a very creative idea that can also appeal......

...will revolutionize the field of medicine, providing novel treatments for Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease and Parkinson’s. A tiny cluster of cells, smaller than the head of a pin, holds the key to curing fatal diseases, even to growing spare body parts, says Lanza, director of medical research at the labs. (Cloning) The U.S. Government should fund cloning because cloning can save endangered species. Organisms can reproduce with a “clone” to make offspring. When an endangered species can’t reproduce fast enough to stop extinction scientist believe cloning can save species. Imagine it is the year 2050, and only 30 cheetahs are left in the world. Tireless efforts to help the animals reproduce in the wild have failed and the species could soon die out. But there is a lifeline, and it's in the freezer. Scientists turn to thousands of cell samples collected from cheetahs over the years since 2002, and one by one each of these animals is reincarnated with the help of cloning. This vision is anything but fantastical. If all else fails, such as habitat preservation or breeding, cloning could be rolled out as a last resort to save a species on the brink of extinction. The first endangered animal to be cloned was an ox-like beast called a gaur, native to India and parts of Asia, which was born in 2001. A handful of others have followed. Scientists are even getting close to cloning a species that is already extinct…. (Westphal) The U.S. Government should fund cloning because......

...Prof. Allen 3/7/2012 Principles of Management Shamsiddin Lowther The experience I faced this academic (2012) year in (Principles of Management) can only be justifiably described as challenging. The things I have learned, as well as implanted in myself being have conjured up a lot of thought. A mature emotional shift has changed what I previously felt about Lincoln’s campus and the works of its politics towards student improvement. Growing into the man I’ am striving to be only comes to my realization that I haven’t arrived to that point. So understanding that in order to get to that step I must take the preferable backseat and learn from an “experienced and well-seasoned drive”. Every day I look back to where I was in life before college, before high school, before school period and I can remember my Grandmother would always tell me “Every day is a day you will learn something new for the rest of your life and that’s how you will grow”. I never really understood this but, I always remembered this statement even after she passed away, not until I actually started to believe it, respect it, and live it, did I see the benefits in her message. Learning is the key to salvation without knowledge their no going back to your memory bank and account for what you know because, it’s just insufficient. I have never wanted to work for anyone in my life, as I child I would hear my family always talk about the various business they owned in the 30’s 40’s 50’s and 60’s we......

Friend Essay

...always has your attention and is constantly surrounded by people. You will almost never find this friend at home on the weekends for they love to go out and socialize. Like a lion this friend comes in packs because everyone loves to be around them. Although an outgoing friend is like a spontaneous friend there are some differences. A spontaneous friend loves to go and do things with you, but they do not need to be around a lot of other people. The fast paced cheetah: This person is spur-of-the-moment; hang on for dear life. Like a cheetah this friend lives their life in the fast line. They are very unplanned and adventurous. Constantly on the go this cheetah is always up to go anywhere with you. They like to do indoor or outdoor activities such as cooking, shopping, bowling, and hiking. They never back down when you ask to do something with them; they take it in like a challenge. They can be aggressive at times but you can benefit greatly by having them in your life. Not everyone is lucky enough to have the fast paced cheetah as a friend. Sometimes we accidently get stuck with the “evil rats”. Evil rats: An evil, dreadful, and untrustworthy person. Not everyone can tell a fun friend from an evil one. These types of friends can be a bad influence on you. They can get you in trouble by quickly putting the blame on you.

...Kenan-Flagler Business School Khan Masud Marketing 741 SECTION 8:00am Executive Summary I recommend that PepsiCo select the Cheetah and Mock Opera for their super bowl commercials. The two commercials are most in line with the image of mountain dew, and are the perfect blend of humor, action, and memorability for the brand. This strategy will give them the best return on investment and brand positioning. Developing Criteria for Communications Assessment: Mountain dew is currently successful in the younger 18-30 year old market segment and PepsiCo should pick ads that covey they brand message while appealing to their target group. The competition is gearing up to position themselves in order to gain acceptance in the extreme sports performance enhancing drinks segment and Mountain Dew needs to keep their marketing campaign fresh in order to stay ahead of the group. In order to pick the best ad to select for the super bowl, it is important to break down each of the ad’s elements into communication, memorability, audience perception, and relevance. During the Super Bowl, it is important to craft ads that hit on these points because the current market situation and the elements of success ads are captured within these points. First, communication is important because without the ability to communicate mountain dew’s message, the ad will be useless. Piggybacking off the popularity of the Dew dudes in order to communicate the brand message is a great......

...Lead Your Tribe to Success Interactive Five tools for surviving the concrete jungle. By Micheal J. Burt and Colby B. Jubenville “Zebras and Cheetahs” “Zebras and Cheetahs” Book You have likely watched one of many popular survival shows where people are dropped into a wilderness with little equipment, and it’s up to them to survive until they reach safety. Along the way, they must fashion tools to make survival possible So, what does your work have in common with these survival shows? It can often feel like you’ve been dropped into an inhospitable environment (the global economy) with few ready-made tools, and you must get yourself, and your whole tribe, to safety. You need to be a certain type of leader to plot a safe course forward— specifically, a Zebra and Cheetah (Z&C) leader. Z&C leaders exhibit qualities of both animals.

...reasons. Of that large number the cheetah is one of them. This animal has been on the endangered species list for 22 years now, but has been declining way before that. In 1990, there was an estimated 100,000 cheetahs across their historic range. Today an estimated 9,000 – 12,000 cheetah remains in the wild in Africa. In Iran, 200 cheetahs are living in small isolated populations. As you can see in the chart to the right, the cheetah population has decreased by thousands. It has declined by at least 30% in the past 18 years. Some of the threats against cheetahs are human encroachment, declines in prey and human conflicts, high cub mortality due to predation by carnivores like lions and hyenas, genetic breeding (which leads to abnormalities), and commercial ranchers expanding their farms in cheetah habitat. It’s sad, because many of these the human population can help reduce. Although efforts with stronger enforcement of endangered species and anti poaching laws and habitat restoration for the cheetah have resulted in stabilized populations in some countries, that’s not enough to save the entire species. Hope for the cheetah is to reintroduce/ reestablish cheetah back into protected areas within their former ranges whereby these isolated populations can act as a genetic bank for possible re-establishment for free-roaming cheetah in the future. The biotic factors in a cheetah's environment include the prey it typically hunts. Some common prey for cheetahs include Thomson's......
