Case Study: T-Mobile – Intensifying the Learning Gain
T-Mobile, US, is a part of T-Mobile international, one of the top three global wireless carriers and a proud subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG. ‘In a world full of busy and fragmented lives…wireless communication can help’. This is what T-Mobile believes. With its headquarters at Bellevue, Washington, T-Mobile reaches 268 million Americans, with the support of a 29,000 strong workforce. In the year 2006, T-Mobile introduced Smart phones with solutions and received the highest ranking in wireless customer care by J.D. Power and Associates. They continued to receive such high ranking in wireless customer care for several consecutive years. With the back up of learning organizations, principles, and practices, T-Mobile is truly emerging as a world-class wireless communication organization for others to emulate.
T-Mobile’s customer service division is a compelling place to work in. People enjoy their work and get continuous opportunities to learn and develop. The focus on customer services at T-mobile is not just limited to sharing information, but also to adding value for customers through knowledge acquisition. Their philosophy is to support the learning of their employees not just by training and development programmes, but also by creating a mutually supportive happy work environment.

...Prestige Data Services Cost Volume Profit Analysis The following equation has been used for the purpose of this analysis: (Intra-company sales + commercial sales) = Fixed Cost + Variable Cost/hour * time (in hours) To work out only the contribution of intra-company and commercial computer use, “Other commercial sales” has been removed from the revenue. To counter that, “Materials cost” has been removed from the costs; three month average for these parameters is approximately equal. Fixed Costs = $212939 Rent ($8000), Custodial Services ($1240), Computer Leases ($95000), Maintenance ($5400), Computer Equipment Depreciation ($25500), Office Equipment and Fixtures ($680), Fixed component of Operations (6*$3600 = $21600), System development and maintenance ($12000), Admin ($9000), Sales ($11200), Sales Promotion ($8083), and Corporate Services ($15236). Variable Costs = $29/hour Variable component of Operations ($24 per hour), Power ($5/hour) – calculate from March power cost divided by March computer use, assuming only billable computer use is to be used for this variable cost. Revenue = $82000 + N* $800/hr (where N is number of commercial sales hours) Intra-company sale of $82000 per month at $400/hour translates to 205 intra-company sales hours per month. Hence, for breaking even: $82000 + $800 * N = $212939 + (205 hours + N) * $29 This gives us N = 177.54 hours, and gives us Break even revenue of $142032.68. Thus, to be run as a viable...

A New Dct-Based Perturbation Scheme for High Capacity Data Hiding in H.264/Avc Intra Frame

...Fast Training-Based Redundant Predictor Elimination Scheme for Intra Coding in H.264/AVC Tseng-Jung Lin, Kuo-Liang Chung, Po-Chun Chang, and Wei-Jen Yang National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei, Taiwan 10672, R. O. C. E-mail: {D9715002, k.l.chung, D9915014, wjyang}@mail.ntust.edu.tw Abstract—Currently, Laroche et al. presented an efficient method to eliminate redundant predictors for intra coding in H.264/AVC. Their proposed method has a bitrate advantage reduction under a low bitrate environment. In this paper, we present a fast training-based redundant predictor elimination scheme to enhance the execution-time performance while preserving similar bitrates. We first develop a new statistic training approach to construct a set of most similar predictor-pairs and determine the priority of each predictor. Based on the constructed predictor-pair set and the determined predictor priorities, we thus can efficiently eliminate the redundant predictors and preserve more frequently used ones, leading to the advantages of bitrate reduction and computation-saving. The results of experiments on the sixteen standard Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) test sequences turn out that under similar bitrates, the average execution-time improvement ratio of the proposed scheme over Laroche et al.’s method can be more than 16.77%.

How Does Intra- and Interpersonal Perception (Understanding Yourself and Other People) Contribute to Individual Success Both at University and Later at Work?How Does Intra- and Interpersonal Perception (Understanding

...How does intra- and interpersonal perception (understanding yourself and other people) contribute to individual success both at university and later at work? An individual’s awareness and monitoring of themselves can enhance and improve one’s perception of reality, contributing to individual success; just as growing relationships with others and strong communication skills can in-turn contribute to the same individual success. This success can be achieved at an academic or organizational level, through an individual’s intrapersonal and interpersonal perception of themselves and the world around them. However, without strong intrapersonal dynamics, an individual cannot achieve an equally strong interpersonal perception with their community and the greater world. Strong intrapersonal perception begins with an individual’s self-assessment of what they know, so that they can improve their self-regulated learning skills and be successful (Bercher, 2012). Self-regulated learning is important as it allows an individual to assess and monitor themselves, proving to them their ability or inability to complete a task. This can be achieved through many tools and exercises. Bercher describes the use of a Student Self Assessment Sheet (SASS), which shows how an individual can achieve better learning through cognitive feedback, which usually occurs during the completion of a task. If feedback occurs during the accomplishment of a task, an individual can understand what went wrong and...

Discuss the Relationship Between Sexual Selection and Human Reproductive Behaviour

...Discuss the relationship between sexual selection and human reproductive behaviour (24 marks) In this essay I will be discussing the two theories of sexual selection within humans and their reproductive behaviour. The evolutionary explanation of relationships says humans have an innate drive to reproduce and pass on our genes. Sexual selection is a process within natural selection where characteristics are selected because they’re attractive to the opposite sex, and so this increases reproductive success and passes on these traits to their offspring. Sex differences in sexual selection comes from our evolutionary past and so males and females have different reproductive behaviour; these differences are shown from their mate choice (inter sexual selection), mate competition (intra sexual selection) and differences within their short term and long term mating strategies. Males and females differ in mate selection as the different sexes have different needs which are stemmed from our genetic code which has evolved over millions of years. According to the inter sexual selection theory males and females look for different characteristics in a mate and behave differently to attract these mates. It is important to men that women prioritise physical attractiveness and so men are responsive to those who are young and attractive as it connotes that these women are more likely to be fertile and so the man can reproduce and pass on his genes. Therefore, men are attractive to women...

Be sure to note comments of agreement and disagreement, and include issues of social and economic gaps in society as well as any examples provided and your conclusions. After carefully reading the text and researching through bing.com, we have come to believe that crime is predominantly an intra racial event, because it’s not often that you hear on the news of blacks victimizing whites, Asians or any other race but their own. We all thought that intra racial happens within certain types of violent crimes such as rape. It is different when it comes to assaults or robberies, we have researched some terms that included a review of percentages suggested for robberies and assault. This finding suggested that the motives behind black assault and rape are different than the motives behind white assault and rape. Author of “Is Violent Crime Intraracial?” had stated that that white offenders chose black victims in 8.3% of robberies, 2.7% of assaults, and 5.5% of rapes. These percentages suggested that each of the three violent crimes is strongly intra-racial for white offenders but predominantly interracial for black offenders. This finding suggests that the motives behind black assault and rape are different than the motives behind white assault and rape. Which we find true because how often do we catch these kinds of events on the news...
