The American Way of Strategy (Ch: 7-9 summaries)

The Cold War began in the late 1940s when Joseph Stalin refused to move the Red Army from Eastern Europe, imposed communist regimes on the region, began a massive arms buildup, and sponsored communist revolutions throughout the world. The Cold War began in Europe and ended in Europe. This war, as any other war, was a calculated plan and not just a tragic accident as evidence showed in the memorandum soviet deputy foreign minister Ivan Maisky sent to Josef Stalin. “Maisky suggested that the Soviet government manipulate popular fronts to bring communist satellite regimes to power throughout continental Europe after the war.” So the Cold War resulted from Soviet aspirations to dominate Europe and Asia. However this time, the Soviets preferred methods such as intimidation and subversion to fight this war.
As it is discussed in previous chapters of this book, “The purpose of the American way of strategy has always been to defend the American way of life,” which led the United States to prevent the Soviet Union from taking control over Eurasia by conquest, subversion, or military intimidation. However, this time the options to stop Soviets from taking control over the region were limited by the determination of American leaders to avoid militarizing American society. There were options such as the ‘strongpoint defense’ “This was a modified form of isolationism, which would commit the United States to defending only North America and islands off the shore of Eurasia including Britain and Japan.” There was also the strategy of the ‘rollback’ of Soviet power by force. Still, the strategy that was chose was containment. “The United Sates would seek to prevent the Soviet bloc from expanding, by force or sponsorship of communist revolutionary movements. But the United States would not attack the Soviet regime or directly…...

...Cory Strange Chapter 9 Discussion Questions E-commerce: Digital Markets, Digital Goods 1. Discuss how the features of ubiquity, universal standards and information richness make e-commerce different from traditional retailing efforts. * With ubiquity e-commerce becomes available all the time compared to traditional retailing efforts that have limited hours and limited mobility. E-commerce is very simple to use and understand thanks to universal standards. Information richness is the how complex a Web site can be, and the content that is on the site. * 2. Describe how the Internet changes information asymmetry in favor of consumers versus sellers. * The internet allows consumers to compare prices from many different sellers to get the lowest price. Consumers can also access information on products and services much faster, and how much they cost. * 3. How can businesses use the “wisdom of crowds” to improve their products or services. They can use the knowledge of several people instead of just a couple. They can use the input to update their products and create new ones to sell. With improvement and additions a business should be able to profit. Also by listening to their customers they will develop a relationship with them which, in turn, will allow them to retain their customer’s...

...Into the Jungle Chapter 9: In Cold Blood: The Tale of the Icefish 1) How did the fish antifreeze originate? The fish antifreeze originated from an ancestral trypsinogen gene. The team at the University of Illinois came to this conclusion when they found shocking similarities between the antifreeze glycoproteins (AFGPs) and a trypsinogen gene. These similarities were between the AFGP exon and the sequence of the trypsinogen gene, between the 3’ end of the AFGP gene and trypsinogen, as well as between the two introns. All these similarities between the AFGP gene and trypsinogen gene were at least 90 percent identical. Not only that, but it was also found that the trypsinogen gene’s nine base pair segment encoded, by repeated duplication, tripeptide (Thr-Ala-Ala) repeats in the AFGP gene; which are the building blocks of AFGPs (Carroll, 178). Basically, the fish antifreeze originated from a gene that already existed. 2) What is a fossil gene? A fossil gene, or more commonly known as pseudogene, is a gene that is present but is inactive or “abandoned” (Carroll, 179). In the case of the icefish ancestors, the remaining alpha-globin gene is the fossil gene. 3) How do icefish obtain their oxygen? What might happen to icefish if the waters around the Antarctic became warmer? Icefish obtain their oxygen due to their cardiovascular system. Large gills and scaleless skin with large capillaries allow the icefish to “increase [their] absorption of oxygen from the...
