Segment 1: AFLAC


Summary
That wacky, quacky duck brought AFLAC to a high spot among most-recognizable ads and brand names. The insurance company is growing quickly as a result of this greater name recognition. It achieved 89 percent brand recognition in a relatively short time, resulting in $10 billion in sales and about a 25 percent compound growth rate.

AFLAC had spent millions of dollars on advertising with little or no effect and almost no market awareness. Clearly, the current strategy was not working. This led the management team to decide to try something bold to increase market awareness. The advertising agency came up with many different ideas, but one crazy one—a duck. AFLAC tested the ad concepts and, as we know today, the duck yielded the highest results. The goal of advertising is to create awareness, while the actual sale comes from the agents selling the complicated insurance products.


Discussion Questions
1. What other industries, products, or brands have used humor in advertising to help position themselves in the marketplace? Do you think the strategies have worked? Where wouldn’t humor work?


Humor wouldn’t work all that well with serious purchases (e.g., health), but one might think it wouldn’t have worked with something as serious (boring?) as insurance. Might that be because the humor is associated only with the name and not the insurance company’s attributes? B2B might be a place where humor might not seem appropriate (chemicals, machines), yet it might cut through the ad clutter.

2. Now that AFLAC is a widely known brand name, what should its next advertising campaign strategy be? How should AFLAC link the new strategy to the same business and marketing plans? Do you think the company should drop the duck? Why or why not?

...Learning and Information Services Guide to Proofreading What is Proofreading? Proofreading involves checking the content and appearance of your written work: looking for errors in typing, spelling and grammar, and ensuring that it is presented in a style that meets the requirements of a module or course. Proofreading is a skill that requires time, but the more you practice the quicker and easier it will become to spot any corrections that need to be made. Why is Proofreading important? Proofreading is an essential final stage of the essay writing process which should not be overlooked as a poorly presented piece of work can lose marks. After the effort of finding information and writing the essay, don’t lose marks by submitting a work spoiled by spelling and grammatical errors, or that does not adhere to your module’s requirements.

...Video Conversions That Make Your Favorite Music Live Forever! Keywords: Vinyl LP to CD, VHS to DVD transfer, audio tape to MP3, video conversions Some of the greatest music ever made may not be available digitally on MP3 or CD except on vinyl. Moreover, if you have already purchased vinyl records, it is not necessary to buy them again on CD. The work can be made simple by just converting your vinyl LP to CD. This will make it easier for you to listen to your classic songs that may have been buried in your attic. In this way you can extend the life of your LPs by having to handle them less so that you can use them for special occasions. Many audiophiles claim that analog vinyl LPs sound better than digital CDs because a digitized sound loses all of the sonic information between its sampling points. But this does not change the fact that CDs have proved themselves to be more durable, popular, portable and also easy to use. Vinyl records degrade with every single play. So it is always better to transfer them to high quality CDs to preserve them forever. Also audio cassettes have a life span of 15 to 25 years. Reel to reel tape has a life expectancy of between 10 to 30 years and after this your precious audio could be lost forever and ever. It is possible to transfer audio from cassettes to your computer where it can be stored in formats such as WAV and MP3 or can be burned to CDs. Thus you can prevent the fading of your sweet memories by listening to them over and...

...Video Case: Constraint Management at Southwest Airlines Question 1: Analyze Southwest’s passenger boarding process using the Theory of Constraints. Southwest Airlines is an airline company that has set industry benchmarks of having the best turnaround ratios, in an industry where lead time during different operations is very time consuming. Southwest currently boasts a rapid gate-turnaround of 25 minutes or less, and it demonstrates how attention to activities pertaining to ground operations (including cleaning of the aircraft, fuelling and flight preparation) can help the company in being so operationally efficient. Customers rave about low fares, exceptional customer service, and the biggest competitive advantage that Southwest has over its competitors is its’ ability to have a lack of assigned seating that allows customers to choose where they can sit on the plane. Having a turnaround of 25 minutes or less brings about potential areas of bottlenecks; for instance if wheelchair assistance is required for passengers, a bottleneck might arise that may hinder the turnaround time of 25 minutes. Hence, operations managers at Southwest need to carefully evaluate the current processes in order to achieve better efficiency and reach turnaround times even lower than 25 minutes. The Theory of Constraints is a systematic management approach that focuses on actively managing those constraints that impede a firm’s progress towards its goal. Southwest Airlines currently wants to make...

... WITH HOME HEALTH CARE/ RN EVAL ADULT PROTECTIVE SERVICES FOR PLACEMENT ---NEGLECT TYPICAL CASE:As cliché as it sounds, there is not a “typical case”. Each patient has their own set of strengths, weakness, social issues, community support and physical ailments. Due to the fact that all of the patients have some type of neurological issue, a large amount of the client interaction is with family. SLIDE 5 “Measuring success” -The hospital measures success when a patient is discharged within an appropriate time frame and with the tools needed to prevent readmission. Patient’s that are readmitted within 30 days of discharged can be considered an unsuccessful discharge. SLIDE 6 “QUOTE” SLIDE 7 “ ASPECTS” - The patient can be hospitalized for anywhere between a few hours to maybe 2-3 days. It’s rare to have someone for more than 4-5 days. It’s hard getting to spend as much time as we would really like to in order to get to know the patient better and find underlying issues. -The most rewarding aspect of hospital social work is being able to help guide a patient and family through a difficult time.

Video Games

...Video Games and Juvenile Delinquency The connection between video games and increased youth delinquency is debatable (“Violent video,” 2013). Social science has definitively settled some of the questions. Cumulative evidence gathered from numerous academic studies makes one side of the argument persuasive (Regoli, Hewitt, &DeLisi, 2011). The relation between increased violence and video games is an example of contested academic terrain. Recent research demonstrates the existence of a strong link between video games and youth violence (KimHun-Soo& KimHyun-Sil, 2008). The connection between video games and the real world violence is obvious. Apparently, the media seems to furnish new evidence relating to the same issue. For example, the perpetrator of Norway’s masskillings confessed to having watched a shooting game before committing the crime (Regoli et al., 2011). Playing video games has a direct link to aggressive and violent acts among young adults. Extensive literature in psychology shows increased propensity to violent acts after playing video games (“Violent video,” 2013). The findings relate to an increase in delinquency and violence among the youths. Indeed, exposure to violent video games is directly proportional to aggression and antisocial behaviour. Domain-specific theories on aggression and delinquency explain the relationship between video games and antisocial behaviour (Regoli et al., 2011). General Aggression Model, a comprehensive meta...

...[Your Name] [Instructor] [Class] [Date] Violent Video Games do not CAUSE VIOLENCE Introduction Correlation does not prove Causation. Since 1992, there have been 387 school shootings in America. In the wake of these tragedies, the investigators and our society have looked to find somewhere to point the blame. Some blame gun laws, some blame our school system, but almost all conclusions place at least some blame on video games. When 90% of today's teenagers video games are 90% likely to include mature levels of violence, there's clearly an issue. However, the issue is mistakenly simplified down to the equation that violence in games = violence in real life, mistakenly because correlation does not prove causation. Today, I want to talk about why video games do not cause violence, and can even be a healthy way to release aggression. body Research is inconclusive. Unfortunately, research on video games and violence is inconclusive and does not ever come to a consensus. For every study that you find that proves video games cause violence, you have a study that proves that video games have no correlation to real-life violence. Media psychologists, communication scientists, and pediatricians disagree greatly among themselves as to whether or not there is a causal relationship between gaming and violence. There is more than a 20% variation in opinion over whether or not gaming produces real-life violence. That variation does not sound convincing to us, who like to pretend...

What are the annual projected free cash flows? What is the NPV of the project assuming the firm was entirely equity financed? What discount rate is appropriate? Since we assume that this project will be entirely equity financed, we can use ra. Assuming that this project has similar risk with that of Kramer.com & Cityretrieve.com, we can use their average beta to compute the discount rate based on CAPM model: ra=5.0%+1.5*7.2%=15.8%. Given that FCF = EBIAT + DEP – INV, we thus have the FCF for the year 2001 to 2006 as follows: Year | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | FCF (‘000) | (1500) | (112) | 6 | 151 | 314 | 495 | As from year 2007 onwards, the FCF growth rate is 5%, the continuation value as of 2006 is 495*(1+5%)/(15.8%-5%) = 4813, therefore, the total FCF for the year 2001 to 2006 is as follows: Year | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | Total FCF (‘000) | (1500) | (112) | 6 | 151 | 314 | 5308 | Using NPV equation with ra = 15.8%, we therefore have NPV = $1,228,500 2.
