The market for premium cars in China, estimated to be 400,000 units, accounts for only 7 per cent of the total passenger vehicle market in the nation much lower than 15 to 20 per cent in developed economies. The segment however is experiencing massive growth. It is expected to grow by 100 per cent by 2015 and further reach 1.4 million units by 2020[1]. The main factors driving the growth are the increase in income of the Chinese consumers as well as shift in socio-cultural factors. In 2009, there were 477,000 millionaires in China as opposed to 2.9 million in the United States. However, 206 of every 1000 Chinese millionaires bought a super-luxury car while only 78 per 1000 did in US[2]. As the figure represents, there is a greater propensity to spend money on premium cars in China. A premium car represents a milestone in a (mostly young and typically from real estate, finance and mining and export businesses) Chinese’s life and uplifts his social standing. The market is expected to further grow disproportionately with the rise of Chinese elite. For reference, it is expected that 3.5 million people in China will have the financial means to buy a premium car by 2015 up from 1.8 million today. Furthermore, the global exposure and education has also contributed to a greater awareness of premium cars and differentiation from mass segment. There is thus a tremendous scope for Jaguar Land Rover to further exploit this opportunity. Not unexpectedly, the segment is dominated by global brands. Brand value, technical competence and price insensitivity of buyer seem to be the major reasons for absence of any home-grown competitors. Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz accounted for roughly 76 per cent[3] of premium car sales in...

Jungle World

...Bronx Zoo: Jungle World Exhibit General Description: The Jungle world Exhibit at the Bronx Zoo was very interesting. If it wasn’t for this class I probably wouldn’t have ever went there, I am glad that I went because I saw a lot of interesting displays and learned a lot about animals that I have never really known about. My favorite display is the Rainforest display. The display was so real feeling. I saw animals such as ebony and silvered langurs, as well as tree kangaroos, fruit bats, black leopards, tropical birds, toads, and snakes. Jungle World had real plants and full grown trees and flowing water falls, and the only light source came from natural sun light that comes through windows in the ceiling. I learned that Jungle world contains about 90% of all the world’s species of plants and animals live there, but only about half are known to science. The sounds were incredible. The animals made the jungle sound so cheerful and alive. The Jungle was incredible. It was truly amazing to see all of the different animals, and how they all lived in close quarters and kept it alive. When I heard the gibbons singing that was beautiful, I saw how nature alone can make beautiful melodies and duets and flood the jungle with peace and serenity. Display: Description of the Asian Rainforest The Asian Rainforest display was the display that stuck out to me the most. I love the tropics and all of the exotic animals. The sights, sounds and......

...“Balboa” a short story by Sabina Murray AS YOU READ Pay special attention to descriptions of Balboa's relations with the Indians and the Spaniards. Write down any questions you generate during reading. Vasco Núñez de Balboa ascends the mountain alone. His one thousand Indians and two hundred Spaniards wait at the foot of the mountain, as if they are the Israelites and Balboa alone is off to speak with God. Balboa knows that from this peak he will be able to see the western water, what he has already decided to name the South Sea. He takes a musket with him. The Spaniards have been warned that if they follow, he will use it, because discovery is a tricky matter and he wants no competition. The day is September 25, 1513. Balboa ascends slowly. His musket is heavy and he would have gladly left it down below, but he doesn’t trust his countrymen any more than he trusts the sullen Indians. So he bears the weight. But the musket is nothing. He is dragging the mantle[1] of civilization up the pristine slopes, over the mud, over the leaves that cast as much shade as a parasol[2] but with none of the charm. Balboa is that divining line[3] between the modern and the primitive. As he moves, the shadow of Spain moves with him. Balboa steps cautiously into a muddy stream and watches with fascination as his boot sinks and sinks. He will have to find another way. Upstream he sees an outcropping of rock. Maybe he can cross there. He tells himself that there is no hurry, but......

Jaguar Case Study

...The British car manufacturer, Jaguar plc, has experienced a turnaround in profitability over the past four years. As a result of this recent success, the British Government has decided to return the company to the private sector through a public offering of the stock. Through an analysis of Jaguar’s profits over the past four years, it is apparent that the majority of their success can be attributed to the appreciation of the US Dollar. Like any multinational company, Jaguar plc, is exposed to exchange rate risk, and thus it is necessary to acknowledge this risk and appropriately hedge against it. Taking this into account, Jaguar must make strategic and calculated decisions to ensure that the company becomes more resilient to interest rate swings through growing it profits organically. Jaguar needs to mitigate its risk by implementing the proper hedge. We determined that a 50% forward hedge would be appropriate given the exchange rate in place. By using the historical data given, we were able to make forecast predictions for an income statement over a stretch of three years. The rolling hedge will provide a three-year time frame that will allot Jaguar sufficient time to implement its new company wide initiatives that are aimed at driving down costs. The first initiative is the implementation of lean techniques. This initiative will focus on increasing productivity through the identification and elimination of waste. Specifically, by decreasing the amount of inventory......

...examples of keystone species which there could be predators, mutualists, and engineers. Since the prey numbers are low, the keystone predator numbers can be even lower and still be effective. Keystone mutualists are organisms that participate in mutually beneficial interactions, the loss of which would have a profound impact upon the ecosystem as a whole. Although the terms 'keystone' and 'engineer' are used interchangeably, which is better understood as a subcategory of keystone species. Out of all the keystone species in the world the one that I am most fascinated with is the jaguar. The jaguar is largely a solitary and opportunistic predator at the top of the food chain. It is a keystone species, playing an important role in stabilizing ecosystems and regulating the populations of the animals it hunts. The jaguar has been numbered as the near threatened in Central and South America. The jaguar acts as a keystone predator because of its widely varied diet, and they also help balance the mammalian jungle ecosystem with its consumption of 87 different species of prey.

I found quite a lot of clashing information on this subject, some said Adam named the lion before time was even being recorded, and other said the Egyptians named the lion, but I could not find any reliable sources for this. As for the meaning, Panthera Leo: “large gregarious predatory feline of Africa and India having a tawny coat with a shaggy mane in the male” c. leopards, cougars, panthers, ocelots, and anything feline basically d. My scientific name would honestly be the same as it is now, if I was the one to name it I would probably think of something different at the time. But I have been associating leo with lion too long to think of any other name that doesn’t sound ridiculous. 2. a.

...ase study of Tata Motor Acquisition of Jaguar and Land Rover You are Here: Home > Management Case Studies > Case study of Tata Motor Acquisition of Jaguar and Land Rover According to industry analysts, some of the issues that could trouble Tata Motors were economic slowdown in European and American markets, funding risks, currency risks etc. Acquisition of Jaguar and Land Rover provides the company with a strategic opportunity to acquire iconic brands with a great heritage and global presence, and increase the company’s business diversity across markets and product segments.- Tata Motors, in April 2008. “If they run the brands as a British company and invest properly in new product, it will be successful because they are still attractive brands.”- Charles Hughes, Founder, Brand Rules LLC, in 2008. “Market conditions are now extremely tough, especially in the key US market, and the Tatas will need to invest in a lot of brand building to make and keep JLR profitable.”-  Ian Gomes, Global Head, Emerging Markets, KPMG, in 2008.

Variables - Independent variable Surface area of ethanol in contact with atmosphere. I’m going to do this by varying radius of different test tubes, beakers and other materials which is presented in the lab. - Dependent Variable The rate of evaporation. I’m going to measure this by the change of mass of ethanol over a period of time. - Controlled Variables Wind. When executing the experiment, the wind will affect the rate of evaporation (The stronger the wind, the more evaporation) so I’m going to carry out my experiment in the fume cupboard. Temperature. I want to keep the temperature at all times the constant since the temperature affects the rate of evaporation. I ‘m going to do this, by conducting my experiment in a temperature controlled liquid incubator. Humidity. I would like to keep this a constant as well but I unable to do so.

...Section 9.1: Exercises 6, 12, 20, 28, 32, 50 6.) Explain why each graph is that of a function. * Each graph is that of a function because at each point in a graph we get a value for y corresponding to a value for x. This is just the pictorial reflection of what we get in case of a function. Solve each system by substitution 12.) Solution * 2x + y = 5 * y = 5- 2x Substituting in first equation 4x – 5y = -11 4x – 5(5-2x) = -11 4x – 25 + 10x = -11 14 x = -11 + 25 14x = 14 x = 1 Therefore, we get : So, y = 5-2x = 5 -2*1 = 3 x = 1, y =3 Solve each system by elimination. 20.) Solution 4x +y = -23 ………………………eq 1 x - 2y = -17…………………………….eq 2 Performing 2*eq 1 + eq 2 we get : 8x + 2y = -46 x – 2y = -17 This Gives us : 8x + x = -46 -17 9x = -63 x = -7 So, x – 2y = -17 -7 -2y = -17 2y = 17-7 =10 y = 5 So, X = -7, Y =5 28.)
