Park Taxes

...A Chillington resident is outraged over the present residential property tax. The recent tax was implemented to improve Chillington’s parks. The author makes some really obscure and unsubstantial allegations on why this tax is a total waste of tax payer’s money. The first mistake the author does is states that the people of Chillington do not enjoy outdoor recreation and then does not have any information to back this allegation up. The author gives no evidence or facts to show why the people of Chillington dislike outdoor activities. So therefore, this could just be the author’s opinion of the Chillington residents. This statement needs to have more evidence to justify the allegation as a fact for the entire city. The second mistake the author makes is making another obscured statement that no one ever uses the park that is located across the street from the author’s house. For instants, the resident never tells what the parks condition is in or, what time of day the resident is watching for the activity. There are lots of factors why the park may not be used, and the author gives no sound evidence or information on how the author came up with this conclusion. Therefore, this is not an accurate analysis about the park either. Finally, the resident of Chillington, claims that the very same tax was implemented in Warm Springs and it did not increase the park use there. The resident never states how they came up with this result or what the information was based......

Water Park

...Lashawn Mcdaniel Prof. L. Gertsma ENG 250 25 September 2015 The Water Park The Water Park in Dothan, Alabama was a great summer vacation for my family and I this summer. This vacation brought back memories of my childhood. That twelve-year-old girl still lives within me. The waterslide, wave pool and concession stands were exciting to me at the age twelve. At the age of thirty-nine my impression of the park was different because I had self-control, but the same excitement flowed heavily through my veins as my family and I enjoyed each festivity. I felt like a kid in the candy store as we enjoyed our family vacation in the city of Dothan. The fifteen feet yellow slide was scary and exciting all at the same time. At the age of twelve, getting on the slide for me was a challenge. I can remember my cousins and friends encouraging me to walk up the entry way to get on the slide. So this summer my husband and kids had urged me to walk up the entry way to the slide. The lifeguard instructed me on how to sit on the mat before pushing me down the slide. At the age of thirty-nine I felt my heart pounding and butterflies crawling in my stomach. I screamed with excitement. I did not use profanity or try to get off the mat that was underneath me this time, plunging into the water, with the lifeguard standing in the middle of the pool sent chills down my spine. I continued to repeat this activity over and over again. The excitement was overwhelming. The big, ocean...

Ocean Park

...ADMN 4076 International Business Management Topic: Individual 5th Case Assignment (Ocean Park Fights Disneyland) Question 1: Why was Ocean Park able to turn a threat into an opportunity? Ocean Park was able to turn a threat into an opportunity because they understand their value and they were a local company in Honk Kong who stick with their cultural heritage. They focus on animals and nature , they were about reality whereas Disney was about fantasy. They did not try to compete with Disney but stick to their core competencies, roots and focus on nature and wildlife with many animal related activities and make a few changes such as: • They position themselves as a world class attraction • By letting the resident of Hong Kong know they were a home grown park who cater to families from children to grandparents • Strengthen its core competency in real nature as compared to Disney’s strength in cartoon characters. • By introducing annual pass to boost attendance. • By differentiating itself from the competition • By not trying to compete with the competitor and sticking to core competencies. • Did a create campaign that tapped into the locals psyche for seasonal holidays. • Adding to wild life by adding 33 new species of animals. • They revamp their product line. • Improve its brand image.

Overtation Park

...In the 1950s, there was a significant challenge and thought of a recharged enthusiasm for creating Overton Park, with the extra reproductions of the national interstate thruways. Overton Park is depicted as a recognized 342-acre section of land which was turned into a group park, it was utilized for multi-reason diversions. Inferable from its adaptable plan, Overton Park soon turned into the social focal point of Memphis. Among its numerous attractions, the recreation center contained the "Memphis Zoo, the Memphis Museum of Arts, a (9) nine-opening fairway, a structure, and two little lakes." (Cooper, 2007, Pg 240) The subjects of Memphis developed common worries about the pulverization of the regular excellence of general society park incited by Congress. Has the administrator acted within his/her proper range of authority? Yes, even though the Court claimed the case to its sum. Overton Park was the milestone for the Supreme Court case. Congress plainly did not expect to bring about the interruption of the group; in this way this case was built up by the structure of a legal survey for regulatory activities. Even though the sectary replied that the case should have been dismissed because those that were bringing the action did not have to stand. (Cooper, 2007, Pg 241) "The death of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966 and the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1968 taught the recently made Secretary of Transportation not to affirm the utilization of area from openly...

Paintball Park

... exciting part of this acquisition is the future expansion projects. Our client is planning an analysis using the prior year’s financials to help aid the transition the park from a seasonal, to year-round operation with the addition of an indoor paintball structure. This will give their local players one of the only indoor paintball fields within the north eastern part of the state. History of the Sport: Bob Jones, who was a sporting goods retailer, wrote an article about the game in an edition of sports illustrated about his time with a group of friends in 1981. They called the game “Survival” in which they used guns manufactured for farmers to mark cattle with gelatin capsules and fired by CO2 cylinders. The game was very crude compared to today’s standards. Soon after the article, they started selling beginner kits to the public to try and spread the game. Bob opened the first “official” paintball field in New Hampshire in 1982. He branded the game as the “national survivor game” and contracted the Nelson Paint Company to be its soul supplier of goods. Throughout 1983-1989 there has been many woods ball and speedball championships throughout the US and Canada. Big names like JT, WGP, WDP, Tippmann, LAPCO, IDC, and Smart Parts are carved the way for the sport. Most of these companies are still in business today. From 1990 until 2002 there was huge innovation within the industry. Paintball guns that were once crude pump guns reengineered from...
