Ad on a Magazine

I have chosen Newsweek magazine, I’m not the target customer of this market because it is completely out of my comfort zone. I don’t have a lot of options among the magazines to choose one which is out of my comfort zone. I have chosen “Newsweek” from the available ones.
Readership of NEWSWEEK: Newsweek is an American weekly news magazine published in New York City. It is distributed throughout the United States and internationally. It is the second largest news weekly magazine in the U.S., having trailed Time in circulation and advertising revenue for most of its existence. Newsweek is published in four English language editions and 12 global editions written in the language of the circulation region. The key trends in news magazine readership, according to Mediamark data, are affluence and age. News magazines are a graying habit. Despite the occasional hiccup in the data, the age gap is quite noticeable. It is also a fact that the target audience for news magazines is probably male compared to female. It is clear that the target audiences for Newsweek are the male of age group between 35 and above irrespective of race and lifestyle.
One ad that is Effective: I have chosen the “ iPhone 4 – FaceTimeVideoCalling.Smile”. This ad is placed on the last page of the magazine which is considered to be one of the expensive pages of the magazine.

"Corruption occurs when someone has monopoly power over a good or a service, has the discretion to decide whether or not you receive it and how much you receive, and lacks accountability." (Robert Klitgaard, Controlling Corruption, 1988). The level of corruption in international business transactions continues to be a critical problem.

They thwart the competitive process and circumvent laws, regulations, and procedures put in place for the public good. They divert funds from owners, shareholders, and are usually paid as fees, commissions, or are paid without record. The cost to the public totals millions of dollars annually.

...Mr. le president, The United States actual situation needs the federal government direct input to recover its economy. The government will have to consider the expansionary policy and other fiscal policy tools with an eye in monetary policy to fully handle the downturn of our economy which means the government has to focus on fiscal policy most important at the time and not neglect monetary policy because it can give some incentives. The details of my recommendations and the pros and cons of what you might consider about our crisis are as follow. The actual state of the economy needs a bit stimulus from the government by its spending and the Fed’s increasing the money supply. Investors will put forth in their investment if interests rates are lower not the opposite as I was told. Because higher interest rate increases unemployment rate as businesses are unable to employ the labor force. However, as the president does not have full control of the Fed’s actions it is recommended that he focuses on what he has in hand for immediate remedy. Again the government’s spending but in necessary needs and transfer payment to stimulate aggregate demand will make an increase in Real GDP. These are weapons for the actual battle. In turn our population will again be able to afford their needs in spending themselves and contribute to our recovery. We recommend fiscal policy at this time because monetary policy has shown its limits in a situation where not only the neighbor has lost his job......

...You Decide In order to improve the overall economy and lower the unemployment rate and correct inflation the government needs to adopt the expansionary monetary policy. This policy incorporates ideas to jump start the economy again. Lowering interest rates will help improve employment. Having lower interest rate will encourage consumers to buy and spend money. For example, lower mortgage rates will make people more inclined to buy a house. Many future home owners would consider buying a home when the rates are low because it will lower their payments compared to higher rates. An increase in home purchases would help improve the economy. In addition, low interest rates for business loan will help encourage businesses to expand their company. Borrowing money at 1 percent would be a no brainer for business to grow their company. Also interest rates have a significant role when businesses use a bank line of credit. If a company can borrow money on at a lower interest it will help their overall net profit because their interest expense would be lesson. To improve unemployment rates it starts with the small businesses. Lowing interest rates can have considerable positive effect with decreasing the unemployment rate. . Also I would lower the exchange rate for foreign exchange. If we lower the exchange rate more countries would decrease the imports to the US thus leading the US to export more goods to other countries. By exporting goods it would lead to more jobs for the US.......

...The tiger is the dark force of Shiva, challenging the human and light part of Vishnu, the great deity Pi worships. The two opposing forces wage a persistent war during his hardships The beastly power of cannibalism poses a serious threat to the rational side of humanity. If Vishnu and Shiva are the irreconcilable opposites in Hindu cosmology, the coexistence of him and the tiger is justifiable. The two must achieve the state of harmonious equilibrium. Caste system, another feature of Hinduism, forearms Pi’s mindset for later ordeals. According to Louis Dumont’s sociological study, caste system springs from the opposition between pure and impure. The pure and impure must be kept separate and this separation is the framework that decides the social structure (Smith 2003, 83). The individual must submit and conform to the hierarchy of society. Pi is well adapted into the hierarchical Indian society where each individual has his own place. Such an ideology is reÀected in his animal story. The pure and the impure occupy the different positions on the lifeboat. He, the rational human being, is the acknowledged alfa master while the tiger, the impure beast, occupies the lower position. But still, each creature in his place must contribute to the structural universe: “The animal in front of you must know where it stands, whether above you or below you. Social rank is central to how it leads its life” (Martel 2002, 55). Pi’s story is bound up with his utopian value......

...On August 11, china’s central bank devalued the value of Yuan against the US dollar by 1136 pips or 1.9%, and made this devaluation the biggest one-day devaluation of USD/CNY in the history. If we look the year chart of USD/CNY, from 2008 to 2013, Yuan entered into an appreciation round (from roughly 6.85250 to roughly 6.04370). From 2014 to August 2015, Yuan entered into depreciation round (from roughly 6.04370 to roughly 6.39240). This cycle made Yuan completed a U turn that called by WSJ. Most people believe that the devaluation is because China wants to stimulate its exports. But, can china make it happen? From my perspective, china is not going to make it happen in the short run. First of all, if we simply let the china’s export revenues equal to quantity multiply by price. A decrease in export prices does not necessarily lead to an increase in exports. With high proportion of low value-added products in china’s exports and according to Qingyi Su (2013), “Income and Price Elasticities of China's Exports”, price elasticity of china’s exports is low, whose absolute value is less than one. Which means 1% decrease in price will increase the quantity by less than 1%, and leading to a decrease in export revenues. Secondly, According to the J-Curve Effect, the quantity of import and export are not change significantly at the beginning, However, due to changes in exchange rates, export revenues that settlement by US dollar will decrease, and import revenues that......

...coach walks in with an upset look on his face. You think to yourself that it’s just going to be a difficult practice. Your coach actually tells you that you do not have practice today. You wont have practice ever again. Your entire life work gone, just like that. With your heart crushed, you cannot understand why the sport is just, canceled. You walk up to your coach and ask what the problem is. Your coach, as disappointed as you, tells you that the University board of athletics has decided to drop your “life” from the program to abide by the Title IX requirements and for not being a profitable program. This actually happened here at the University of Utah 50 years ago and it’s because there is a problem going on at Universities like The U and it is that men’s non-revenue sports, like wrestling, are being impacted negatively. Wresting is beginning to fade from colleges that are not in the Big Ten or the Ivy League, and Colleges like the University of Utah are participating in letting the sport diminish. In an article written by Coyte G. Cooper, “Involving the core product” “While there were 363 NCAA wrestling programs in 1981, the number of men’s wrestling programs offered by the NCAA had diminished to 234 in 2005.” Schools should stop making excuses for dropping the sport and making reasons on why to add. This is exactly what the University of Utah should be doing. The University should be trying to find reasons to reintroduce the sport that all athletics were built on,......

Theroty U

...Theory U? Jeremiah Staropoli ORGB 625 July 31, 2011 Introduction The world has known great leaders since the beginning of recorded time. Before any theories on building leadership skills or new buzz words and phrases about leadership, we experienced the impact of great leaders like Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, and Eleanor Roosevelt. These men and women shared little in common except for the fact that they were willing to take a stand for what they believed in and maximize whatever talents they had towards that end. Martin Luther King led the world through the tumultuous Civil Rights movement and inspired millions to change the way in which they viewed the world and each other. He was willing to give his life for this cause (Honey, 2011). Abraham Lincoln had a similar cause in an even more politically and socially divided nation and made similar sacrifices for his cause (Ferguson, 2011). Gandhi led one of the greatest social and religious reform movements in the history of the world with little formal training of any kind. Before it was popular to have a cause as a “first lady” of our nation, Eleanor Roosevelt set herself apart by championing the cause of those most severely affected by the great depression. “[S]he worked as a tireless advocate for the nation's downtrodden and fought to open relief programs to women” (Beasley, 2010).
