This company owns thousands of Hess gas stations, which include small convenience stores or Dunkin Donuts stores, throughout the East Coast of the United States to hundreds of thousands of acres of land in the North Dakota Bakken oil shale play. Internationally, Hess Corporation owns many other hundreds of thousands of acres in land where they conduct other exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas.
Hess Corporation currently has a net income of $1.7 billion and transports more than 700,000 barrels of crude oil and other products daily via tankers, barges, pipelines, and production platform sales. However, there have been some important market changes and trends, which companies like Hess Corporation must pay close attention. Adapting to change is essential in the world of business. During today's economy and competitive environment, organizations can be certain of uncertainty. Change is occurring everywhere and is forcing business executives to review how the evaluate markets, technology, human resources, and competitiveness.
For example, prior to the invention of the Internet, companies like Blockbuster Video and even the United States postal service enjoyed smooth sailing profits from video rentals and standard postage fees. However, because of the Internet, local video store rentals became a thing of the past as did sending someone a letter or a birthday card in the mail. Technology was evolving and more people were renting their videos online from…...

...Revenue Management Introduction: The location of our hotel is in the heart of Springfield, Ma off exit 7 next to the Basketball Hall of Fame. At the Springfield Marriott there are 262 rooms with 9 floors and it is a full-service hotel. The property from the outside does not look very impressive, but once you get the grand tour you could say you just might change your mind. Bill Hess, the General Manager gave us a tour of the hotel after his interview, it was a spectacular experience.. Inside of the hotel, adjacent to the garden area there are several banquet halls named after local areas such as “Berkshire”. The full-service aspect is provided by the Champions Sports Bar, Currents Restaurant, and Currents Bar. These food establishments bring in large amounts of revenue and help serve guests the options of breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as some entertainment. The Marriott has a wide selection of target guests for these dining establishments, including groups outside of travelers. The Champions Sports Bar helps the hotel pick up revenue from locations such as the Basketball Hall of Fame. The major hotel market segments primarily include transient travelers and group guests. Of the transient guests, the hotel’s specific target is a ‘business’ transient guest, many of which have open contracts with the hotel. One of the companies who provide frequent business travelers to the hotel includes Smith and Wesson Gun Company located in Springfield, MA. Usually happens with...

Information Technology

...Software piracy, define as the unauthorized use, distribution, duplication or sale of commercially available software, has become a global issue. In fact, almost one-third of all installed software is pirated (Jansma, 2004). Software pirates are responsible for over $10 billion in lost revenue (Hess, 2003). Each industry must protect its own intellectual property. The three most important aspects in helping to resolve piracy is knowing the processes and techniques in capturing piracy, identifying the motivating factors, and prevention. How do organizations capture pirates? There are three processes that can help software companies catch violators: monitoring, preserving evidence, and taking action. The first step is for companies to determine the extent of its piracy problem and monitor the online channels (Hess, 2003, p.4). Once the extent of the problem is identified, online monitoring should be implemented to discover the details. The two types of monitoring are in-house and outsourcing. The advantage of using the in-house monitoring program is that it saves money and the staff gains firsthand knowledge of the strategies that are used. Outsourcing the monitoring can be expensive, but the main advantage is that the service is extensive and uses systematic monitoring (Hess, 2003, p.5). Most pirated software is sold on auction websites, such as eBay, Yahoo! Auctions, and Amazon.com Auctions (Hess, 2003, p.5). Approximately, 60-90% of the software products offered in online...

Examine the Physical Processes That Cause Tectonic Hazards Including Plate Boundaries and Other Factors

...Examine the physical processes that cause tectonic hazards including plate boundaries and other factors A range of case studies, scales and locations will be used to investigate physical causes of tectonic hazards. ’A natural hazard would be defined as a natural event that has the potential to threaten people’s lives and property’ Whittow 1980. Therefore, we could define a tectonic hazard as a geophysical process involving seismic activity and the movement of the earth’s plates, creating events such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. Physical processes that cause tectonic hazards including plate boundaries and other factors can be separated into 2 categories; these are primary and secondary hazards. A primary hazard is a hazard that came as a direct result of the tectonic activity, whereas a secondary hazard is a hazard which is created by primary hazards, these include tsunamis, lahars and aftershocks. The physical processes that cause tectonic hazards occur at plate boundaries. These plate boundaries are categories as: convergent (oceanic- continental), convergent (continental- continental), divergent (oceanic- oceanic), divergent (continental- continental), transform and collision zone. However these tectonic hazards do occur elsewhere as a result of intra-plate boundaries and hotspots. Other physical factors that cause tectonic hazards include relief of land, geology and aftershocks. Tectonic hazards revolve around the key idea of tectonic theory put......

Transactional vs. Transformational Leadership

... (employees) when the Transactional style is necessary for employees resistant to change within the organization or for their own self improvement. By empowering our employees through the use of the Transformational Leadership style we are providing them with the ability to have a larger share of the control of their own destiny in the organization. We provide them with more self control over their work environment and allow them to grow, learn, improve, and at times fail, all with the goal of improving the organization one employee at a time. As cited by Bennett and Hess, “Transformational Leadership treats employees as the organization’s most valuable assets. It is employee-centered and focused on empowerment.”[1] Resources Bennett, Wayne W, and Karen M. Hess, (2006). Management and Supervision in Law Enforcement, Fifth Edition.

Business Analysis

...Business Analysis Part II Anikki Manasseh MGT/521 October 29, 2012 Richard Bowman Business Analysts Part II Introduction In the world of business one has to try and stay ahead of the next company especially if they are in the same league. Nothing is ever guaranteed and in a world that is constantly changing it is best to stay one step ahead of the competition. The Fortune 500 list has companies who have made an impact on the economy and have continued to grow over the years to show improvement. One such company is ExxonMobil who retained the prestigious spot of number one for this year. However, there are other companies in the same field that are considered rivals but they also continue to strive and push forward. This paper will discuss the comparisons with the other companies in the same field. Also the financial health of said company, any technological advances, how globalization has affected the company’s business strategy and a bench marking analysis. Hess Corporation As one of the more notable competitors for ExxonMobil, this is a company that does have some extensive history behind it as well. It does have its place on the Fortune 500 list, however the number is quite down and not as high as s tome might think. This is a company that has marketed gasoline throughout more “1360 Hess gas stations in 16 U.S. states and operates a 50% owned oil storage terminal in the US...

Hess Law

...EXPERIMENT 3 Title : EXPERIMENTAL APPLICATIONS OF HESS’S LAW Objective : To determine the heat of reaction by applying Hess’s Law for reactions whose energy cannot be easily measured directly. Introduction An exothermic reaction releases heat into the surroundings and is usually observed as temperature increases in the solvent, container, and other immediate surroundings. The amount of heat released from the reaction can be expressed as q reaction = q solution + q calorimeter ……..(1) In this experiment, the calorimeter is assumed to absorb so little heat that q calorimeter is nearly zero and thus the equation simplifies to q reaction = q solution ……...(2) The temperature change caused by the addition of a given amount of heat will depend on the specific heat, Csp of the substance. Thus, the heat involved can be calculated by the equation Q = (Csp)(m)(T) ………(3) The mass of the substance is m, and the change in temperature is T (final temperature – initial temperature) Since this experiment is run at constant pressure, thus the heat changes observed will be equal to the enthalpies of reaction, H for the reactions considered. The enthalpies of these directly observed reactions and Hess’s law will be used to calculate the enthalpy change for an additional reaction which is not directly observed. Recall that since enthalpy is a state function, the enthalpy change for any process will depend only on the initial and final...

Gang Violence

...The Boys & Girls Clubs of America Targeted Outreach Strategic Approaches primary approach to gang prevention is to identify and recruit at-risk youth and place them into ongoing Club programs and activities (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, 2008). The Boys & Girls Clubs of America offer health and life skills, sports fitness and recreation and tutoring (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, 2008). The programs and activities of the Club help to develop at-risk youth’s character, creativity, and health and mental skills. In addition, the Targeted Outreach program’s receives referrals from schools, courts, law enforcement, and community youth agencies (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, 2008). These referrals immediately identify at-risk youth for joining gangs. A comprehensive strategy to today’s gang problems incorporates both prevention programs and treatment strategies. Guiding principles are the objectives that the builder of a treatment strategy seeks to achieve (Hess & Drowns, 2004). The guiding principles of a treatment strategy for gang members will develop the framework for structuring the foundation of the core values and philosophies necessary for correcting gang member delinquency. Four guiding principles to be used during the development of an effective treatment strategy for gang members are: 1) encourage compliance with the conditions of probation and drug and alcohol programs; 2) identify and address risk factors for delinquent behaviors and actions in individual, group...

Bilingual Education

...Bilingual Education For almost two centuries, communities throughout the United States have had some system of bilingual education. “An 1839 Ohio law allowed for instruction in German, English, or both in the classroom, according to the wishes of parents” (Leal and Hess 2000). This was a system constructed to help non English speaking students learn English and still prosper in schools. However, more recently we have seen hostility towards languages other than English being the language of instruction. After the devastating events of 9/11 and the more recent increase in legal and illegal immigration, many Americans have become weary of anything that appears to be un-American. Fears of foreigners coming over to “their” country and taking over are being exacerbated by the media and various laws have been proposed and enacted to outlaw non-English instruction in American primary and secondary schools. The articles, The Politics of Bilingual Education Expenditures in Urban School Districts and The Proposition: English Only for Educating Children, touch on just how controversial and complex this issue has become. The issue of bilingual education started to gain more attention in 1998 when the state of California proposed an act that would end all bilingual education in that state. This proposed act was called Proposition 227. After the proposition was announced to residents of California, the state government received numerous lawsuits and criticism from people who were...

Hess Lab

...SCH 4U – U3 Hess’s Law Lab (refer to Investigation 5.4.1 “Hess’s Law”, Nelson Chemistry 12, P. 351-352) Introduction: You will use calorimetry and Hess’s Law to determine the molar enthalpy of combustion, ΔHc, of magnesium metal (Mg): Mg(s) + ½ O2 ( MgO(s) In open air, this combustion occurs too rapidly so that a calorimetric determination in the student lab would be ineffective (and impossible, considering flames!). However, a different pathway can be constructed using 3 different equations, and the ΔHc (Mg) can be calculated using Hess’s Law. Two of these reactions can be conducted in a student calorimeter to obtain first their q values, and then converted to ΔH using the relationship n ΔH = -q. This last relationship can also be written as ΔH = -q/n, and can be used only if adiabatic conditions are assumed. Lab Preparation: 1. Calculate the expected (accepted) values for ΔH1 and ΔH2 using the ΔHfo tables (source: Brady and Holum, 1988), plus the ones below: Hfo (MgCl2 (aq)) = -801.15 kJ/mol Hfo (HCl (aq)) = -162.2 kJ/mol Hfo (MgCl2 (aq)) = -601.6 kJ/mol 2. Calculate the expected ΔHc (Mg) value using Hess’s Law and the expected values for ΔH1, ΔH2, and ΔH3. 3. Show all of your work in tidy and thorough solutions. Amendments: 1. New Question to start the lab: “What is the ΔHc (Mg), determined by using a student calorimeter? How effective is the...

Hess Law

...9.4 Water Balance The body’s internal environment of extracellular fluid must maintain a constant volume, solute content, and often temperature. Humans and other organisms require a stable aqueous environment to survive. They carry this aqueous environment inside their body, and they must continuously replenish and maintain it. Aquatic organisms must also maintain their internal environment, since the conditions of the external environment change in terms of solutes and temperature. Atlantic salmon spends part of its life cycle in both freshwater and saltwater environments. For the first few years of its life, the salmon lives in freshwater rivers and lakes, where the solute concentration is less than the concentration within its body. This concentration gradient results in the uptake of water into the salmon’s internal environment, and therefore homeostatic mechanisms must expel the excess water from the body. As the salmon matures, it abandons the freshwater environment for the salt water of the Atlantic Ocean, where the concentration of solutes is higher. In this saltwater environment, the salmon experiences a continuous loss of water from its body, which it must replenish. Because water is not as abundant on land as it is in aquatic environments, terrestrial organisms require mechanisms to conserve water and maintain a homeostatic balance of solutes within their body. OSMOSIS – define the following: During osmosis, water molecules move from a region where they are...

...Hess 1 Amber Hess Mrs. Garmon 6th Grade Science March 1, 1999 Which Battery Is Better? Batteries come in many shapes and sizes. Some are no larger than a pill while others are too heavy to lift, but most batteries have one thing in common-they store chemical energy and change it into electrical energy. The cell is the basic unit that produces electricity. A battery has 2 or more cells, but people often use the word battery when talking about a single cell, too, like a dry cell. A dime-sized battery in a watch is a cell. Cells act like pumps to force electrons to flow along conductors (DK Science 150). “The electrical force of a cell or battery is called its electromotive force (emf). This force, which makes electrons flow around a circuit, is measured in units called volts (v.). Each kind of cell has a particular emf. A dry cell, for example, has an emf of 1.5 volts” (DK Science 150). Another way to measure a battery is by how much current it can provide. Current measures how many electrons flow through the cell. The unit used to measure current is amps. A common cell has several important parts: the positive terminal and electrode, the negative terminal and electrode, and the electrolyte, which is between the two electrodes. The positive electrode is made out of a carbon rod. Powdered carbon and manganese oxide prevents hydrogen from forming on the carbon rod, which would stop the cell from working normally. The negative electrode is made out of...

Experimental Application of Hess Law

...Introduction The energy content of a substance, called its enthalpy, cannot be measured. However, the enthalpy change, ∆H, of a chemical reaction can be measured. Most chemical reactions are accompanied by energy changes, usually in the form of heat energy. The enthalpy change of a reaction is the heat energy released or absorbed in a chemical reaction. Exothermic reactions are reactions that releases heat energy to the surroundings. The enthalpy of the products is lower than that of the reactants. So, ∆H is negative and its temperature of the mixture increases. Some examples of exothermic reactions have dissolution of sodium hydroxide in water, dilution of a conc. Acid, neutralization and bond formation. For calculate the amount of heat released from the reaction in this experiment, the equation can be expressed as qreaction = qsolution+ qcalorimeter − ① In this experiment, the calorimeter is absorb a very little heat or can be said that nearly to zero. Therefore the qcalorimeter can be neglect in the equation ① as well. This is because the small value of it have. Thus, the equation can be simplifies to qreaction = qsolution − ② Next, the temperature change caused by the addition of a given amount of heat will depend on the specific heat capacity, Csp of the substances. Thus, the heat involved in this experiment can be calculated from this following equation. Q = (Csp)(m)(∆T) − ③ where, m is the mass of...
