Kennedy’s Domestic and Foreign Policies
President Kennedy was partly successful in accomplishing his vision of a ‘New Frontier’ both domestically and abroad.
President Kennedy introduced Civil Rights Act, to further the Civil Rights movement; due to his assassination, Kennedy never lived to see this act pass (which happened, during the Johnson administration, in 1963). Kennedy strived to develop the nation’s economy in a way that would benefit employers and employees; when Big Steel broke part of an informal bargain (by sharply raising prices), Kennedy called for an investigation and redirected governmental steel purchases to the smaller companies that had not raised prices (Davisson-Gienapp-Heyrman-Lytle-Stoff, 2005). Additionally, President Kennedy created the Peace Corps, initiated the ‘space race’ (which put a man on the moon in 1969), advocated on mental health issues, and worked with Congress on affordable housing, equal pay for women, and a host of other agendas.
President Kennedy was in office at the height of the Cold War, and though there was much to do in the United States, there were many conflicts that added foreign agenda. The covert invasion at the Bay of Pigs resulted in a “mismanaged disaster” and the same covert approach taken in Vietnam left the United States in the middle of a “Vietnamese civil war”. In 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis left the United States in the “peril of nuclear confrontation” when spy planes discovered Soviet offensive missile sites in Cuba. The end of this crisis came when the exchange agreement was reached with Russia to remove the sites in Cuba and the United States would not invade Russia’s ally (Davisson-Gienapp-Heyrman-Lytle-Stoff,…...

Sony's event was more of a teaser than an unveiling, though: The company never actually showed the new console or named a price. But what we did see was enough to stoke our excitement. We always expect the next generation of gaming consoles to be smarter, stronger, and faster than the previous one. The PlayStation 4 certainly looks ready to deliver in that regard. The visuals were stunning on the game demos we were shown, and Sony claims that we will be able to download and update games in the background while playing. That's huge for anyone who has ever sat down to play a brand-new game, only to have to wait a half an hour for updates. While we didn't see the PS4 itself, we did get a glimpse of its new DualShock 4 controller (below). While similar in design to the......

Indian Frontier Wars

...History of the Indian Frontier Wars In today’s world, Americans aren’t known to “take over” Indians land. Why so? It has been done in the early revolution dating back to the year of 1622. Before 1622, North America was mainly claimed by the Indian folk. However, the settlers that ventured into North America believed that the Indians had no right claiming the land, and soon took over, as time progressed. As the years went on, disagreements amongst the English men and Indians grew. In the year of 1622, Indian’s lives changed forever and became an important role in Indian history. Hearts and souls of the Indian people were poured into the Indian Frontier Wars, believing their way of living would be given back to them. Little did they know, they would be stripped of their land and forced to move elsewhere. Before 1622, Indians welcomed the settlers who ventured their way to North America. Although the English men weren’t interested in intertwining with the Indians, eastern Indians were welcoming and felt as though the luxuries of the settlers would benefit their lifestyle. According to Eric Fosner’s Give Me Liberty!: An American History,” Woven cloth, metal kettles, iron axes, fishhooks, hoes, and guns were quickly integrated in Indian life.” (56) As the 17th century went along, more and more settlers invaded Indians land in North America, which soon became a problem. Settlers believed that North American land wasn’t officially claimed by the Indians because of the......

Stochastic Frontier Analysis

...STOCHASTIC FRONTIER ANALYSIS 1 MOTIVATION • Usual textbook presentations treat producers as successful optimizers. They maximize production, minimize cost, and maximize profits. • Conventional econometric techniques build on this paradigm to estimate production/cost/profit function parameters using regression techniques where deviations of observed choices from optimal ones are modeled as statistical noise. • However though every producer may attempt to optimize, not all of them may succeed in their efforts. For example, given the same inputs, and the same technology, some will produce more output than others, i.e., some producers will be more efficient than others. • Econometric estimation techniques should allow for the fact that deviations of observed choices from optimal ones are due to two factors: failure to optimize i.e., inefficiency due to random shocks • Stochastic Frontier Analysis or SFA is one such technique to model producer behavior. 2 USEFULNESS OF SFA • SFA produces efficiency estimates or efficiency scores of individual producers. Thus one can identify those who need intervention and corrective measures. Since efficiency scores vary across producers, they can be related to producer characteristics like size, ownership, location, etc. Thus one can identify source of inefficiency. SFA provides a powerful tool for examining effects of intervention. For example, has efficiency of the banks changed after deregulation? Has this change varied......

Neuromarketing: the New Frontier of Marketing

...Neuromarketing: The New Frontier of Marketing Throughout our class discussions and papers written, we have debated opposing arguments about the ethical repercussions of marketing to children. In this paper I have decided to take it to an alternative level and evaluate the forefront of marketing, where it is heading, how it works, and attempt to bridge the gap on how this form of research affect children of various ages. Along with all of this, another debatable topic is the moral and ethical issues faced with this expanding sect of marketing. Neuromarketing: What is it? Neuromarketing is a new field of marketing research that studies consumers' sensorimotor, cognitive, and affective response to marketing stimuli. According to some, neuromarketing will change market research and marketing fundamentally. This new form of research is derived from the argument that people don't and can't really know what motivates them, because much of our mental processes are unconscious. However, the truth is that most decisions do involve both automatic, instinctive reactions, and elements of control and consideration. Tools of Neuromarketing: There are many tools used in the study of neuroscience to determine specific chemical changes as well as neurological changes in the human brain. It is the understanding that the researcher’s use of these tools can measure various levels of change in the human body when visually confronted with images and/or video clips. The results of......

The Frontier Myth

...Essay The Frontier Myth ------------------------------------------------- “Up to our own day American history has been in a large degree the history of the colonization of the Great West. The existence of an area of free land, its continuous recession, and the advance of American settlement westward explain American development. (…)American social development has been continually beginning over again on the frontier. This perennial rebirth, this fluidity of American life, this expansion westward with its new opportunities, its continuous touch with the simplicity of primitive society, furnish the forces dominating American character.” Source: http://www.learner.org/workshops/primarysources/corporations/docs/turner.html Frederick Jackson Turner The Frontier is a prominent symbol of American culture. Although it intimidated the colonists and later Americans, it did not prevent them from spreading. What drove them was “the idea of unlimited free land, a sense of unlimited opportunity and optimism”1. The idea of the frontier was significant in American culture between 1860 and 1893 because it was considered by many to be “the last frontier.” “Since the beginning of the European settlements, westward expansion had always served as an inspiration to those dreaming to start a new life.”1 With the last of the frontier being absorbed into civilization, its importance to the American people rose more than ever. Frederick Jackson Turner said that this closing of the frontier......

The New Marketing Frontier

...reviews the development of marketing communication planning and moves into the current and future multimedia marketplace. The New Marketing Frontier Sundeep Kumar Mohanty PGDM 13-15 IBA, Bangalore The New Marketing Frontier Over the last 20 years, there have been advances in marketing media outlets and strategies. One of the more recent forms is referred to as Social Media Marketing. This method can be defined in a number of ways, but one of the best descriptions came from a marketing professor at The University of Cincinnati, Ric Sweeny, “Social media marketing is the ability to use nontraditional communication and connection to build a brand.” Social media is one of today’s biggest forms of communication and it has not only changed the way people interact everyday but also the way companies communicate. Today's marketers have adapted the various forms of social media to perform a business purpose. As a result the adaptation of social media has taken been a focus of innovation and ideas for the marketing world. Contemporary forms of social media are found in two very popular websites, Facebook and Twitter. Together, these sites are defining the platform for social media in the digital world, and continue to adapt and evolve with advances in technology and consumer preferences. The big debate over social media marketing is, can it be relied on as the new marketing standard compared to traditional marketing approaches. Others challenge that this outlet is just a......

The Wild Frontier

...The Wild Frontier – Terminal Services In order to provide appropriate support in terms of software and applications for the new satellite offices there is a need to develop and deliver a comprehensive solution which also meets the support requirements of self-sufficiency for these locations. As a result the use of Terminal Services would be the most appropriate and efficient solution in order to deliver the necessary applications and services. The use of Terminal Services will require the servers which reside at the head office location – and where IT personnel are more readily available to provide and meet configuration and maintenance requirements – to support the hosting of multiple sessions from network-connected workstations at the satellite offices which will then provide users with the necessary applications and services which they need in order to fulfil their designated roles and responsibilities. This will not only provide an effective and efficient means of accessing the necessary services and applications which are required by each of the satellite offices and their users but will also provide an increased level of security through which information and data is maintained across the organization. With the removal of local storage and servers for example through the provision of Terminal Services to these locations would therefore negate the need for the following physical elements to be maintained at each site: * Application Servers * File......

American Frontier History

... AMERICAN FRONTIER HISTORY Name: Course Title: Date Due: Introduction American frontier symbolizes the geology, history, fables, and social expression of natural life in the wave of American westward extension. It started with English pioneer settlements in the early seventeenth century and finished with the concession of the last terrain domains in the twentieth century. A period called the Old West, much of the time misrepresenting the sentiment and brutality of the period. By the late nineteenth century, ranchers had developed progressively reliant on huge organizations. Railroads transported their yields; banks credited that cash; producers sold them cultivate hardware, and shaky universal markets for wheat and corn decided their salary. Overproduction, in the interim, drove costs down. Agriculturists were baffled by listing costs, climbing obligation, high-investment rates, and such railroad polishes, as settled costs or separation among clients. Agriculturists probably won't felt responsible for their destinies[1]. Body Some Western tribes separated eastern tribes in "Indian Territory," from other western tribes, for example, Pueblos had lasting settlements and homesteads. They communicated with Spanish and Mexicans. Plains Indians were migrants and, some were ranchers. Warriors were not able to thrashing white pilgrims because they separated, had inward clashes, and sicknesses. The Plains people groups protected their territory and their......

Going Global Means New Frontiers

...Going global means new frontiers Introduction On the 19th Sep. 2014, the world’s largest initial public offering (IPO) was successfully completed in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), U.S., and the total IPO amount has reached up to $25 billion (Chen. Mac. Solomon. 2014). Alibaba, the miracle creator, used only 15-year’s development to take the seat in the Wall Street and build an e-commercial empire. The NYSE’s IPO is the signal to tell global investors and competitors that Alibaba is ready to join the global market competition. For Alibaba, going global means new frontier, however, the new frontier could be either a barren cliff or cornucopian grassland. In this essay, we will mainly discuss that why Alibaba want to expand global markets, and how Alibaba is going to make the global strategies to against global competitors in overseas market. by avoiding direct competition, targeting similar market as China and increasing firm size in the global market environment to step into a “grassland” market for persistent development. Alibaba -- the world’s largest online and mobile commerce company, was established in 1999 by the group of 18 people led by Jack Ma in Hangzhou, China. There are three main sites in Alibaba China, including T-mall, Taobao and Alibaba.com along with numbers of other companies to support Alibaba’s ecosystem development. Moreover, Alibaba also has Alibaba.com and AliExpress.com to provide worldwide online shopping services (Pressman 2014). Until......

Production Possibilities Frontier (Ppf)

...Dr. Mohammed Alwosabi Econ 140 – Ch.2 Notes on Chapter 2 PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES FRONTIER This chapter reinforces the central themes of Chapter one by laying out the core economic model, the PPF, and using it to illustrate the concepts of scarcity, tradeoff and opportunity cost. It explains, with a model, the concepts of marginal cost and marginal benefit, introduces efficiency, and explains how we can expand production by accumulating capital and improving technology. The economic problem of allocating resources (making choices) in a situation of scarcity can be illustrated by explaining the concept of the production possibilities frontier (PPF). Production Possibilities Frontier (PPF) refers to the maximum combinations of goods and services an economy can produce efficiently using its available resources and technology within a given period of time. It is the boundary between the goods and services that can be produced from those that cannot. The PPF model is a graphical illustration with the following assumptions 1. The society has a fixed amount of available common resources. i.e., the same limited resources can be used to produce either of the goods. 2. The society has a fixed amount of technology 3. Full employment of resources 4. The choice is between producing two goods: Machines and Food. All other goods and services are assumed being the same (ceteris paribus). This assumption is to allow the use of simple graphical analysis. Note that these assumptions......

Kennedy's Inaugural Address

... Kennedy had to impress the leaders and the people of this country he was the right man for the job. Kennedy addressed many problems the world is facing, placing fear in his viewers. Kennedy did a great job at including the younger generation in his speech but he fell short on addressing the entire nation as a whole, leaving his audience fell disconnected. Kennedy won the election in a very close race leaving American’s skeptical about his ability to perform as a leader of the country and fulfill all the needs of the nation. Trying to lead a country with less support than expected was going to be hard for Kennedy, so his inaugural address needed to be on point connecting with everyone. Being the youngest president Kennedy attracted a new generation to the political world, which helped gain support for his campaign but the political veterans could see right through his false hopes and focusing more on other countries than of his own country. In paragraph 9, Kennedy is addressing other “republics south of our border” in their own paragraph, which transforms the meaning of addressing his nation, he spends more time on addressing other countries which leads to unresolved issues in the borders of the United States and lowers his likely- hood of succeeding as president. There is just too many unknowns in America to be addressing other countries issues that are not an immediate threat. The opening of the speech is dull and not what one should expect from a president that......

The New Frontier: Data Analytics

...Assignment 1: The New Frontier: Data Analytics xxxxxx Professor xxxx CIS500: Information System Decision Making April 17, 20xx Strayer University The New Frontier: Data Analytics Abstract The word “tweet” was first defined as “a chirping noise” whose origin dated back to 1768. Since 2011, Merriam Webster dictionary extends that definition to mean “a post made on the Twitter online messaging service”. Mention of the adoption of “tweet” into the Merriam Webster Dictionary is designed to illustrate two main points; that information can be ambiguous and that technology can reweave the very fabric of human culture. According to research done by Zikopoulos, Eaton, Deroos, Deutsch, & Lapis (2012), there exists 800,000 petabytes (PB) of data stored in the world in the year 2000. By their estimates, that number could reach 35 zettabytes (ZB) by the year 2020 (p. 39). The ability to analyze and process the enormous amount of data is a costly undertaking for companies that are behind the curve and a lucrative business for those that are ahead of the game. Each tweet and post contribution from the users that share the web space further buries the proverbial haystack. It is the ability to sift through the data that determines whether a company can gain traction in their respective industry or if they are simply spinning their wheels. This research paper, centered on Capital Cube and their parent company analytixinsight, will aim to discuss how data analytics is paramount to......

The New West Frontier

...thought-process stresses a collection of popular sentiments of the Frontier era in order to create an environment that has some structure. A result of this approach is that it allows continuity to the reader when studying the frontier. For instance, Slotkin notices in his analysis of “The Adventures of Col, Daniel Boone that: “Filson creates a character who becomes the archetypal hero of the American frontier, copied by imitators and plagiarists and appearing innumerable times under other names and in other guises -- in literature, the popular arts, and folklore -- as the man who made the wilderness safe for democracy” (Slotkin 268-69) This shows how his character became an archetype to himself and all other frontiersmen. Because of this, the circumstances may change in the frontier, but its actors do not. As Slotkin describes the character of he furthers this argument and identifies “the most distinctive trait of Boone’s character was his love for the wild land” (Slotkin 298). While this approach is valuable due to minimal historical documentation, its methodology is intrinsically too simple to be taken seriously. Additionally, “Old West” perspectives usually only interpret the traces of the “white imperialist”. However, starting in the 1960’s a new wave of American historians sought to uncover the “untold” immigrant and minority past as well as exposing the truth of the “American Experience”. These “New West” historians refer to Slotkin and others as part of the......

Cis 500 - the New Frontier-Data Analytics

...The New Frontier: Data Analytics CIS 500: Information Systems For Decision-Making Anywhere we travel on the internet we have been bombarded with seemingly codependent requests to, “Like US!”, “Follow US!”, “Watch US!”, “Share US!” from businesses of all types. If you think about it, this is exactly the dynamic. Businesses are in a dependent relationship, relying on the consumers for their survival. If a business wants to engage and remain in a viable relationship, it has to have a product/service the consumer desires and be able to deliver it in a manner that the consumer perceives as valuable. Even if a business has the “next greatest thing”, the consumer will not engage/continue in the relationship if the business does not or cannot provide it in a valuable way to the consumer. Amazon is one company that has been able to successfully develop this dynamic relationship. So then how does a business become and remain successful in the relationship? They need a better understanding of what the consumer wants by improving their Business Intelligence (BI). For decades, businesses have used statistics to analyze data to obtain information and insights for improving BI. With the advent of the computer, data analysis moved from statistical based inferences about the data to a more scientific method based on empirical results. This was the foundational begins of Data Analytics. Data Analytics, as defined in our course text is, specialized software, capabilities, and...

Natives and Their Role in the American Frontier

...Natives and their Role in the American Frontier As Americans, we do not usually question how we came to this land or why we are able to live here as we do. We believe that the American frontier is this grand historical past of our growth as a nation. However, the country we know today as the United States of America was originally inhabited by natives such as the Native Americans, or Indians as they are commonly known as, and Mexicans who were robbed of their homeland in order for the white man to take over control. As citizens of this country, it is important to know how the natives were treated and portrayed in literature in order to become educated about our country and the people that inhabited this land before us. Being ignorant about a particular culture leads to misguided feelings and judgments that are not normally acceptable. By looking at examples from John Smith’s The Chesapeake Indians, Mary Rowlandson’s A True History of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, and Frederick Jackson Turner’s The Significance of the Frontier in American History, we will see that natives were portrayed negatively in popular literature and why it is important to understand how they are represented is justified by the colonial expansion of the American frontier. In early literature written by English settlers, Native Americans were portrayed with very negative connotations. The writers often used words such as: brutal, dark, uncivilized, and savage to depict the......
