HITCHCOCK – The Clear Falls High School varsity girls cross country team gave a nice season-opening statement about their plans for the 2015 campaign, following a strong performance at Dickinson High School’s Swamp Classic at Jack Brooks Park Friday morning.

In the Varsity Blue Division, the Lady Knights captured fourth place with 103 points. Rival Clear Lake cornered fifth with 142 points. Powerhouse Kingwood was tops with 45, College Park claimed runner-up honors with 84 and 22-6A foe Pearland Dawson nipped Clear Falls for third place with 101 points.

The Swamp Classic course was a two-loop challenge over flat terrain. From the starting line by a pavilion, runners headed north over open field for several hundred yards, eventually turning around and headed south along woods, before turning back north again. After the second trip, they reached the finish chute, close to the starting line.

It was a challenging course to say the least, certainly not one meant for PRs to take place.

With medals going to the Top-30 runners, The Lady Knights came home with plenty of medals. Pacing the squad was returning letterman Jennifer White, who was clocked with the strong 5K time of 20 minutes and 12 seconds.

The five-fastest times were all under 20 minutes. Winning the medalist championship was Pearland Dawson’s move-in from South Dakota, Abbie Harrelson. Harrelson, a junior, who competed at the 6A state championship last November, took top honors with the time of 19:21.

After White, the Lady Knights pack stayed pretty tight as Ashley Godfrey reached the chute in 20:25, good for 10th place. Olive Pertuit claimed 20th place in 21:01, followed by Sarah Godfrey in 21st at 21:05 and Emma Pertuit cornered 45th place at 22:32.

...super jumbo plane known as the A380 at a launch cost of $13 billion. Prior to and after Airbus’ commitment, Boeing started and canceled several initiatives aimed at developing a “stretch jumbo” with capacity in between its existing jumbo (the 747) and Airbus’ planned super jumbo. In addition to making the super jumbo one of the largest product launch decisions in corporate history, this figure represented 26% of total industry revenues in 2000 ($45.6 billion) and more than 70% of Airbus’ total revenues in 2000. The inherent risk associated with this major strategic commitment is magnified by the fact that Airbus must spend the entire amount before it delivers the first plane. History has shown that many firms including General Dynamics, and, more recently, Lockheed, have failed as a result of attempting such bet-the-company product development efforts. If, however, the launch effort does succeed, Airbus is expected to dislodge Boeing as the market leader in commercial aircraft after more than 50 years of market dominance by the latter. We can write a custom term paper on Airbus for you! This term paper presents an analysis of this new product commitment and, more generally, of competition in very large aircraft (VLA is defined as planes capable of seating more than 400 passengers). CASE BACKGROUND In the early 1990s, Airbus and Boeing independently began to study the feasibility of launching a super jumbo. Both agreed there was a growing need for a super jumbo......

Boeing Case

...the super jumbo after it had conducted a research. What informed this decision was the fact that there was no sufficient demand to justify the $7 billion investment. Instead of pursuing further the super jumbo development they decided to stretch their existing aircraft to cater for more passengers. They had no pressure to develop the super jumbo because they had the largest passenger aircratf at the time and had no competition at that segment of the market. This means that the segment of the market was monopolised by Boeing Airbus on the other hand wanted to penetrate the long range passenger aircraft market. Based on their research they developed the super jumbo, an aircraft that would carry more passengers than their competitors’ current largest aircraft. Their decision was informed by the fact that there was a need by customers to invest in an aircraft that would carry more passengers without incurring extra fuel costs. Their decision to continue with development of the super jumbo was guided more by what the customers wanted rather than by rivalry with their competitor. Their strategy was driven by customers. Since the decision to go ahead with the development of the super jumbo was informed by their customer strategy, Airbus was able to estimate the demand for the aircraft. However, their projected need for the aicraft showed that they will only realise their return on investment after they have sold 250 aircrafts. The development of the super jumbo signalled......

...politicians or scholars, I believe that the best answer to this questions is demonstrated by 60,000 baseball fans. Fans at a baseball game do not merely provide support for the home team, but also a metaphor for life. Specifically, the actions of the spectators at a game illustrate the selfish desires of human nature as well as a possible answer to improve life for all. For example, when I attend a baseball game, I notice that many fans have individual aspirations for success beyond which team wins the game. It appears that ultimate desire of a baseball fan is to be featured on the Jumbo-tron, the oversized television screen located within the stadium. Many fans believe that the Jumbo-tron brings everlasting happiness and glory to any featured on its oversized screen. However, while the Jumbo-tron allows some to rejoice in their fifteen seconds of fame, I have noticed that it also has a dark side. At times the Jumbo-tron arouses hidden feelings of jealousy towards those like Joe Jones, from section 435 row G seat 1, when he wins a free tub of extra large nachos and his success is celebrated on the large screen in center field. While some fans completely disregard the aspirations and desires of others just so their individual goals can be met, there is always one courageous fan that stands up and represents the coming together of people in order to achieve a common goal. This fan knows that true jubilation comes not only from individual success but from the struggle that......

History of the American Circus

...the elephants, which remains the only act in the circus without a complaint. The two most popular elephants were Black Diamond and Jumbo. These two became the circus mascots of their time. Black Diamond, although popular, fell to a tragic end. On October 12th, 1929, Black Diamond maimed and killed a woman, wrecked an auto, and injured two trainers in Corsicana, Texas. Black Diamond was one of the largest elephants displayed in the county at the time. He was extremely devoted to his handler H. D. (Curley) Pritchett. However, Eva Speed Donohoo hired Mr. Pritchett, forcing him to leave behind the show and the elephant to oversee her plantation and its animals. Unfortunately, the elephant never forgot seeing his trainer leaving with Eva. More than a year later, Pritchett returned to Corsicana and helped unload the animals and was reunited with his precious elephant. It was during the circus parade in Corsicana that Black Diamond spotted Eva in the crowd and charged her, killing her seeking revenge for his trainer leaving him. John Ringling, who had recently purchased the show, wired it to kill the elephant humanely. Black Diamond was shot on October 16th, 1929 in Kennedy, Texas. Jumbo was the highest publicized elephant in history; even his name has been added to dictionaries to describe a massive quantity or enormous size. P.T. Barnum bought Jumbo from the London Zoological Gardens for the pricey sum of $10,000 on February 3, 1882. The Zimbabwean-born circus elephant had......
