...Stock Market in Bangladesh [pic][pic][pic][pic][pic][pic][pic][pic][pic] [pic] Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) dates back to 1952 when the local government deemed it necessary to establish a stock exchange because Pakistani shares and securities were prohibited from being bought or sold on the Calcutta Stock Exchange (CSE). Up until this point, Pakistan had been trading quite profitably on the CSE and had no need to establish their own stock exchange department. In response to the prohibition the Provincial Industrial Advisory Council made the decision to establish a stock exchange in Eastern Pakistan. Initially it was suggested that instead of creating an independent stock exchange, a branch of the Karachi Stock Exchange be opened at Dhaka. However this proposal was very unpopular with representatives from East Pakistan who felt that it was necessary to create a completely new stock exchange in Dhaka. This is what eventually happened with different members of the stock exchange purchasing membership cards at the price of RS.2000. There were two proposed locations for the stock exchange – Dhaka and Chittagong – but in the end it was decided that Dhaka was the most suitable location. An organizing committee was established to further set up the DSE and invitations were sent out to determine what sort of interest there would be in the proposed stock exchange. The response was overwhelming and on the 7th of July 1953 a meeting was held with roughly 100 interested persons......

P&G Scope - Case Analysis

...Procter and Gamble, Inc. Scope The problem for Procter & Gamble`s (P&G) “Scope” brand is that their share at mouthwash market is slightly going down while a new brand called “Plax” launched by Pfizer Inc. has gained a %10 market share in a very short time period which created a situation that left “P&G”s management team in dilemma for how to respond. P&G has some constraints to solve the problem (in fact, the situation is so complex that for some, no problem and threat exist). First of all, if they introduce a new product in the mouthwash market as a competitor against Plax; they are not sure if it will be really innovative or it will focus on unmet consumer needs. Another limitation is that introducing a new product to the market will cost a lot (even the test production costs $20,000. Capital costs, marketing costs, delivery costs, inventory costs, ingredients costs, packaging costs are other important costs which create concerns) and also will require an effective strategic management. After that, the new product is very similar to Plax and has no significant advantage except a better taste; on the other hand, sales department thinks that for success, the product must be seen as unique. So, P&G can not be sure about the future success of this product. Next, for the new product to gain reassurance, patience is needed. This can only be achieved in the long period. Following this, the new product will also reduce the sales of Scope. Additionally, P&G is not......

Scope and Practice of a Physician's Assistant

...The Scope of Practice of a Physician Assistant The term scope of practice has been defined as “The definition of the rules, the regulations, and the boundaries within which a fully qualified practitioner with substantial and appropriate training, knowledge, and experience may practice in a field of medicine or surgery, or other specifically defined field. Such practice is also governed by requirements for continuing education and professional accountability” (Defining Scope of Practice, n.d.). Physicians, nurses and all other medical professionals are required to know what their particular scope of practice includes and to adhere to those guidelines at all times. Many different types of healthcare professionals are found in an Emergency Room facility, and they will all have a scope of practice that they must adhere to. One such healthcare professional would be a PA or a Physician Assistant. A PA must work under the supervision of a Physician who is ultimately responsible for the PA’s performance and professional conduct with the patient. Any medical procedures that the supervising Physician performs in his scope of practice may be delegated to the PA, as long as the PA has had the necessary training and competency to successfully perform the procedure (Rogers, 2007). In an Emergency room setting a PA may be responsible for such patient care activities as evaluating incoming patients through the process of obtaining a complete and accurate health history, conducting......
