Liverpool Rebranding

Liverpool is a city in the north west of England and has a population of around 470000. It became a city in 1880 and is historically part of Lancashire.

Overtime Liverpool has had many identities. In the 18th and 19th centuries it was a huge port with massive ships using the River Mersey to transport cargo and other goods. Around 1960 it became a leader in popular culture.

Liverpool needed to rebrand because the city became old and run down but had little money to spend. This is because in the 1980’s Liverpool experienced economic and social deprivation.So Liverpool was in a spiral of decline because it was no longer an attractive place to live and work, people turned to vandalism and crime and some even left the area. With people leaving the area and it being an unsafe place to walk the streets, investors didn’t want to invest which meant the city couldn’t move forward.

Liverpool is seen to be a city of culture because it has a rich history in popular music, most notably ‘The Beatles’. It also has a rich history in performing arts with an annual summer Shakespeare event. More evidence of it’s performing arts pedigree is the number of theatres, Empire, Everyman, Playhouse, Neptune, Royal Court and Unity Theatres are all very famous theatres. Liverpool also has two premier league football teams with Liverpool and Everton competing at the highest level. All of this shows that Liverpool has so much culture to offer and this is why it was awarded in 2008 by being named European capital of culture.

Now Liverpools residents and visitors are seeing the benefits of rebranding. Residents wanted the rebranding to capture and keep the cities culture and ‘Liverpool vision’ helped achieve this. One of their biggest achievements is the Liverpool one shopping centre, it has over 160 stores, 600 new residential buildings and many more offices and restaurants. The cost of the project was over 1 billion pounds. The whole of the waterfront has now been regenerated for a second time and the Albert Dock has reinvented itself as a host for many cultural events. Shoppers now spend more money in liverpool than any other English city apart from London, Birmingham and Manchester. This has boosted the city's economy massively and it now rivals it’s competitors. Evidence of this would be that in 2008 the city’s economy was boosted by over 800 million and 7500 more people were attracted to cultural events throughout the year. Liverpools residents now experience these benefits on a day to day basis and the newly branded streets have made it a much safer place to walk, making the quality of life much better.

Overall I personally believe the rebranding of Liverpool has been a huge success as it has got the city out of a spiral of decline and it is now a world famous city. Liverpools residents now can be proud of their city as it has rebranded itself as a world class 21st century city.

Hillsborough Analysis

...Introduction to Studying to Organizations In order to analyse the Hillsborough police department from an organizational perspective, we must know what an organization is. An organization is a social system, which comprises the coordinated action of two or more people towards attaining an objective (Donaldson, 1985). We can also specifically classify the Hillsborough police department as a public sector, not-for profit, service organization, because they serve the community without charging a price for their services. An important focus for the investigation of the Hillsborough disaster, is the bureaucratic tendencies of the police department. While there were many police enforcers involved in the disaster, it is necessary to look at the hierarchy of command to have a better understanding of where to direct the majority of the blame. In a bureaucratic organization, commands are passed downward from superiors to those working beneath them, and there is often a heavy correlation between promotion possibilities and your ability to successfully carry out the orders given to you. With this in mind, who is to blame is becomes a question of who is to blame? On a micro level, Captain Duckenfield and Lieutenant Murray delivered the commands to their subordinates that led to the disaster, but on a macro level, the subordinates within the department carried out the commands when they knew it was unsafe to do so. A defining part of being an organization is being a goal-seeking......

Brendan Rodgers’ Gerrard Conundrum

...whether to use the talismanic captain as a bit-part player from the bench, or as a starter from now till the end of the season. Gerrard is now entering the final few months of his Liverpool career, and surely there is a lot of sentiment from quarters of the Anfield faithful for him to play as much football for the club till he departs. However, since his absence Liverpool have been on a scintillating run of games having won 8 and drawn 1 game in the Premier League. The current squad is revolved around the dovetailing of Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling and with the current set up; it is difficult to see Gerrard forcing his way into the starting eleven. The big question now though, is how does Rodgers tackle this situation? Will he be doing the right thing by using Gerrard as an impact substitute? Or, does he allow sentiment to get in the way of his decision-making process to start with legendary player? The answer is – to use him as an impact substitute. As bitter a pill that is to swallow for the fans; it is the truth. For so many years the team has looked up at Gerrard to bring them out of trouble. However, that is not the case anymore. The days of Gerrard pulling Liverpool over the line are gone, as he cannot keep up with fluidity of the current team. The kind of form of this Liverpool side is in suggests that Rodgers is building a team with a new identity; an identity without that does not revolve around their talismanic captain being at the forefront of......

Arsenal Fc

...Arsenal Football Club were formed as Dial Square in 1886 by workers at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, south-east London, and were renamed Royal Arsenal shortly afterwards.[8] The club were renamed again to Woolwich Arsenal after becoming a limited company in 1893.[9] The club became the first southern member of the Football League in 1893, starting out in the Second Division, and won promotion to the First Division in 1904. The club's relative geographic isolation resulted in lower attendances than those of other clubs, which led to the club becoming mired in financial problems and effectively bankrupt by 1910, when they were taken over by businessmenHenry Norris and William Hall.[10] Norris sought to move the club elsewhere, and in 1913, soon after relegation back to the Second Division, Arsenal moved to the new Arsenal Stadium in Highbury, north London; they dropped "Woolwich" from their name the following year.[11] Arsenal only finished in fifth place in the second division during the last pre-war competitive season of 1914–15, but were nevertheless elected to rejoin the First Division when competitive football resumed in 1919–20, at the expense of local rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Some books have reported that this election to division 1 was achieved by dubious means.[12] Arsenal appointed Herbert Chapman as manager in 1925. Having already won the league twice with Huddersfield Town in 1923–24 and1924–25 (see Seasons in English football), Chapman brought Arsenal their......

...THE HUMBLE SUCCESS OF ADIDAS Nowadays, the value of sports has been increasing more and more. So, it is important to have a good quality brands for the sportsmen to wear and equipments to use. Adidas is one of the most famous companies for producing the most quality sport goods. “Many people believe that the name Adidas is an acronym that stands for "all day I dream about sports." This idea has been popularly passed around for many years, but it is utterly false. While it may be used that way nowadays, the truth is that the name Adidas actually stands for the name of the company's founder, Adi Dassler” ( , 2013).

Liverpool Fc

...Manquillo. Dejan Lovren seemed to excite a lot of Liverpool fans when he signed in the summer. A transfer fee of £20 million after a great season in the successful Southampton side which managed an 8th placed finish. Lovren has made a slow but steady start. He has showed some signs of promise, being tall, strong and winning balls. However there is still signs of that shaky defence from last season with Lovren now in the centre of the chaos as we have already conceded 15 goals in 11 games. This season. Rodgers brought in two Spaniards. Javier Manquillo, a right back, and Alberto Moreno, a left back. Javier Manquillo, who is on loan from Atletico Madrid for the season, looks promising but he is only 20 and still has a lot to learn when it comes to both defending and going forward. Moreno, another young full back at 22, looks good going forward, with a lot of pace and power shown especially with his goal in the 4-0 beating of Spurs at White Hart Lane, however at 22 he can still improve defensively, but with the reds splashing out £12 million from Sevilla on the Spaniard, he really needs to step up, along with the rest of the back four. Midfielders Rodgers brought in three midfielders. These were Emre Can, a central midfielder, Adam Lallana, who can play on the right of midfield or in the number 10 role, and Lazar Markovic who is a winger. The next signing we will come to is Emre Can, a young 20 year old German defensive midfielder. Liverpool paid £10 million to Bayer......

There are many on-going debates into Mass Medias influences on crime and violent crime in particular, but is this a true reflection of the current culture crisis or a fabrication to sell copy, taking for instance the Murder case of James Bulger in 1993, after the then 10year old boys Robert Thompson and Jon Venable led 2year old James away from a shopping centre in Liverpool to a brutal /senseless and pointless murder the Media was instantly ‘all over’ the case , even though a murder of children by children was extremely rare the reporting of and style of reporting throughout the case was reflecting to the public all that was now wrong in Britain, The Sun instantly called for ‘a crusade to rescue a sick society’, a ‘breed’ of violent children , single mother parenting , and dysfunctional underclass families where being painted as those whom would bare these types of violent monsters creating one of the most widely advertised Moral panics of the 20th Century (Cohen, 2002).

...Introduction The Cities Programme The Cities Programme at the London School of Economics is an innovative centre for teaching and research on urban issues. The Programme studies the relations between the physical and social aspects of cities. We see design as a mode of research and practice that shapes urban environments, responds to urban issues, and connects social and material forms in the city. We take a multi-disciplinary approach to these issues, drawing on expertise and insights from the social sciences, architecture, urban design, engineering, planning and other fields. The MSc City Design and Social Science aims to promote a new generation of urbanists who can engage across these disciplinary boundaries, and have a positive impact on the making of cities in the future. The City Design Research Studio is the central unit of the Master’s programme, linking theoretical issues and research debates with the practical analysis of problems of city design and original proposals for urban intervention. It promotes an understanding of the city as a social as well as a built environment, and of the complexities of urban design and development processes. In 2008-9, the Studio went to London’s ‘City fringe’. On the Bishopsgate site, the students traced the intersection of different social and economic cultures, the border zone of different political authorities, and the stark abutment of different built forms. The work this year takes its place in a......

Does the Lcp Improve Quality?

...The Liverpool Care Pathway: Does it improve the quality of dying? The Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) is an integrated care pathway developed in the late 1990’s (Ellershaw et al, 1997) as a means of transferring best practice in care of the dying, from the hospice environment to other sectors starting in the acute setting.

During this assignment the author will highlight and explain how a data search was conducted, and will analyse the data retrieved, explaining and evaluating the data to build a discussion based on the chosen topic of end of life care, with a focus on the Liverpool Care Pathway. The author will conclude by producing recommendations for practice. Although described above that the Liverpool Care Pathway is an appropriate tool for providing adequate care for patients, it can also be seen as a controversial pathway, being described as a ‘tick box’ approach rather than a humanistic approach (Chapman 2010). It has been referred to by the UK’s Daily Telegraph as ‘sentenced to death on the National Health Service’ (Devlin 2009). The author has a keen interest in palliative care, after researching is interested in enhancing knowledge surrounding the LCP as there are......
