...SUMMARY ON PAPER: REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS THROUGH OPERATIONS AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT This paper explains how organisations, be it big or small, can reduce their carbon footprint and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by trying to develop and nurture “zero emission” supply chains.The author says that emission reduction and profitability are not mutually exclusive and can be implemented regardless of the scale of the organisation. The author has taken two examples, Walmart, and ZETA communities, a startup in the building industry. Both these examples show how efforts to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions has resulted in increased profits.Walmart, having an extensive supply chain had to make various changes to arrive at this juncture. On the other hand, ZETA communities, has been a sustainability-focused company from the start. The author then argues, that although Walmart has reduced its emissions, its levels are still a far cry from what is needed to achieve the prescribed standards of reaching 50% of 1990s levels by 2050. Also, the first phase of changes was the easiest, all changes hereafter would be much more difficult and expensive to make. Even in the case of ZETA communities, its buildings generate as much electricity as they consume, as well as enough to cover the emissions created in the manufacturing process. But the emissions given out by the production of building materials is something it has failed to address, particularly in the cement industry...

...Extra Credit Summary Response to Beauty and the Labor Market It is apparent from this article that physical attractiveness plays a part in the wage earnings of Americans. While evidence is not necessarily strong because of other unknown characteristics, there is enough data to support that good looking people make more money than homely looking people and good looking people are usually placed where their looks are productive. This research supports that there should be more focus on the issue of discrimination whether it be because of race, disability, or level of attractiveness. I believe there is discrimination based on appearance in certain sectors of the workforce. To go even further, I believe some non-traditional sectors may discriminate depending on their location in the U.S. There are certain sectors like education, medicine, and health and wellness that don’t usually discriminate. Other sectors like hospitality and media do discriminate on appearance. The education sector is not usually one to discriminate on physical appearance; intelligence is usually the key factor on whether or not you’re hired and how much your salary is. But in certain schools, administrators may only hire a “certain look”. I guess it depends on the sector you work in whether or not appearance should decide wages/salaries. In a profession with the media, the attractive people get the parts in shows, videos, etc, and are therefore paid based on how much people find them......

...Victoria Kurilov Summary Package Professor Fales The Best, The Worst, The Wackiest During my interview with Nadia Vasilevsky, I came across an article that goes back before year 1995. “The Best, The Worst, The Wackiest…And The End”. It was an article from the Washington Post, my grandfather, has written it. It goes back in time and describes all the different circumstances in Russia. More like a news blog of current time. My grandmother gave it to me and let me read it. It really caught me off guard; I just wasn’t expecting to find something big like this. I think it’s pretty cool. “All I knew about what was going on in Russia was what I gleaned from the news. And the news, of course, is mostly focused on politics and catastrophic events, such as the Kursk submarine sinking and terrorist attacks. For that reason, I wanted to keep this blog as apolitical as possible, and as focused on the ordinary lives of ordinary people as I could make it. I wanted to know how Russians were really living -- not just how their politicians and oligarchs were faring.” This came straight from one of the posts in the blogs paper. His overall mission was to find and see what life in Russian really was like years later. Russia was really suffering in poverty after my great-great-grandfather passed away. His family all wanted to have a fresh start, so moving to America sounded like a good idea. After living in America for a couple of years, my grandfather wanted to go...

A research of Chinese smartphone market investigation (2011) illustrates that 1/3 of individuals used their smartphone for multiple activities on a daily basis.

The way of devices perform affects what kind of media and marketing will see on it. Also, the context of the technological platform changes what kind of advertisement are appropriate.

But, those customers have recorded some positive aspects of mobile marketing and found some facts that affect the perception of the...

Beyond being a diet aid fiber also helps in areas such as improving digestion and maintaining control of blood sugar levels. In most insistences fiber is found in healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables. The best way to consume fiber daily is from foods in your diet, such as whole-grain breads and pastas, rather than supplements.

...Summary and response essay Subway’s slogan and advertisements suggest to eat their fresh food. However, what the advertisements don't say is if the food is even fresh or healthy, which we just tend to predict it is. Therefore, Subway uses propaganda in order to lure people to eat their so called "fresh food”. Indeed, propaganda is widely used by various companies in order to sell their products with different brainwashing techniques. In the essay, "Propaganda Techniques in Today’s Advertising” by Anna Mcclintock suggests that propaganda influences people’s thoughts over a subject by using different propaganda techniques, I believe that those techniques work and do change people’s opinion over a subject. In fact, propaganda can be found on advertisements all around the world, like in magazines, commercials, and newspapers. The truth about propaganda is that it was designed to influence people’s opinion towards a certain point of view or a specific subject or product. Thus, propaganda uses seven different techniques in order to lure people towards the subject or product. For instance, one of the techniques is Name Calling, in which one uses negative or offensive names against a subject or product in the process changing someone’s opinion about it. In contrast, the Glittering Generalities technique uses attractive and appealing words or phrases in order to influence positive emotions towards the product a company is selling. Another technique is Transfer, which a company...

...SUMMARY TEAM A University of Phoenix CJA 484 Dwayne Carr May 4, 2015 SUMMARY What did you find that was really useful, or that challenged your thinking? During this weeks reading and research in class I found it profoundly difficult to completely comprehend the fiscal demands part of correctional institutions as my concentration is on human services not finance. However, keeping fiscal budget demand in mind when implementing policy can be important as the world does revolve around money. Without proper budgeting the correctional institution would not have any programs for inmate’s to get help or education. The most important thing to remember is the safety of the prison staff must come first when implementing policy change. Furthermore the development of technology use like RFID tag to track inmate sin prison can eliminate investigation time and save money in the long run. The only issue seems to be is the initial cost of the devices outweighs the money saving. Inmates however will most likely tell the truth knowing they are being tracked it is almost like having a good working camera sin every area of the prions without the constant monitoring or mess-ups of film. Was there anything that you've already taken and applied in your workplace? Working security requires the use of some of the latest technological advancements. While it is not necessarily in a corrections environment, the use of technology is still paramount to the effectiveness of our tasks...

...Looking for the Scientific Method in the Popular Press Victoria Windham Houston Community College I find that the article from the popular magazine Psychology Today leaves much to be desired. (Navarro, 2009) explains how some nonverbal communication works, but does not fully go into depth about how we have concluded why certain body language means certain things. However, in the article from Social Neuroscience, a thorough case study was done to show how people are more attracted to those who sort of imitate their own behavior. Navarro’s article may have been more informative had it been presented in the way that the other article was. Case studies would be the best method for these topics since they would show how people interact with each other and pick up on body language as well as verbal communication. Navarro’s findings would most certainly have been more significant if they were meant to be academic rather than popular press. Popular press will usually skip over deep findings and research in favor of giving a shortened summary that they feel most readers would enjoy; However, if meant for an academic press, Navarros’ article would have been presented differently and shown more in-depth results.

...A Summary of “The FASB’s Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting: A Critical Analysis” by AAA (2007) This article critically review the Preliminary Conceptual Framework (CF) and draw a conclusion that the FASB’ CF is a fundamentally flawed approach and should not be adopted in its present form. The AAA reviews and analyzes the FASB’ Preliminary Conceptual Framework in nine parts and gives its comments (COM). 1) The CF cites the users of general purpose financial reports are present and potential investors and creditors. The AAA suggests the users should be the owners of enterprises and requires independent certified public accountants to adhere to GAAP. 2) The CF cites the primary use of information in financial reports is for investment decisions and stewardship is mentioned, but almost in passing. The AAA suggests stewardship is not only important, but also it is more important for the enterprises than investment. 3) The CF cites the objective for financial reporting is cash flow information such as cash or cash equivalents. The AAA suggests focusing on cash is relevant for decisions involved in the management of cash and believes financial statements should be a combination of cash basis and accrual basis measures. 4) The CF cites accounting completeness means including in financial reporting all information that is necessary for faithful representation of the economic phenomena that the information purports to represent.

...Article Summary The article I choose to write about today was an article I found on supplychain247.com titled “Facebook and Twitter Announce Support for Apple in Backdoor Dispute with FBI”. This article was written on February 19, 2016. The story offers insight into what exactly the FBI is trying to do. The government wants to put an order in place where Apple has to create a software version that weakens the security of the IOS devices. The reason why they want to do this is because of the San Bernardino shooter, they want more insight to his life. They want to know if there is more information that will help lead to a motive, but also they want to know who he was speaking to. The problem with that, is that although he is a criminal this is an invasion of privacy, what the FBI wants them do is Eliminate the auto erase function that wipes an IPhone if the wrong passcode is entered 10 times. The problem with that is that leaves phones more liable to get stolen. They want to eliminate the function that locks a person out the phone if the wrong password is entered too many times. What they would like to add is a software that allows the FBI to electronically enter a passcode using software. The FBI wants apple to do something that could potentially be disastrous to their brand. The way this relates to the supply chain is that people buy IPhone because of these certain characteristics that the government is potentially trying to take out. Apple is a trusted brand because they......

The purpose of this article is to explain what the researchers conducted in an eight-week analysis of students from the online module. The analysis used the strategy to observe online communication and classroom activity used by the student’s primary dynamics like diversity, geography, and maturity. Additionally, the data gathered by Nagel et al (2009) about the scholar’s success and failures were documented. When they had a completed online module they concluded that the modules that had the discussion forums invited the student’s to be proactive in interaction with fellow students and the instructor. By writing quality responses, a student’s sense of community is established and communication is improved. Students having inquiries formulated by the instructor or fellow students that have been commented on by the instructor or the other students, have enhanced the online modules. Without the communication between the instructor and the students the online module would fail. When a student is not successful with their goal to complete the module it is because of lack of communication with the students and the instructor.
