Generation X - 1,104 words
http://www2.hn.psu.edu/Faculty/KKemmerer/jgproces. html The "Generation X" population of today's society has made the wearing of beaded necklaces containing fimo beads quite a fashion statement. These necklaces contain small, round, colored plastic beads and other intricate beads made out of different colored fimo. Fimo is a synthetic material similar to modeling clay, and can be used to make thousands on types of beads. These beads can then be incorporated into necklaces. However, to accurately describe the process of making this style of bead, a simple pattern will be used as an example. Specifically, the fimo example described will have a pattern with a small, yellow circular center surrou ...

The Fallen Messiah Of Generation X - 1,205 words
On April 5, 1994, the lead singer and songwriter of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, silently placed the end barrell of a shotgun into his mouth and pulled the trigger. And so ended the life of so much promise. But why did it have to come to this? Perhaps the reasons will never be known, but there were a few things that haunted Cobain throughout his life that he just couldn't seem to get away from. Cobain's parents were seperated when he was nine years old, and according to friends and family, the divorce that would shortly follow thereafter proved itself to be somewhat of a turning point in the way Cobain viewed himself and others. Up until then, Kurt was a happy child who was full of smiles and who a ...

Positive Changes In The Workplace - 1,255 words
"Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go." So sang the charmingly quirky dwarfs in Disney's Snow White. In many ways they stood for the hopes of mid-century Americans: Hold down a secure job, produce your share of goods or products, do what the boss says, go with the program, and earn enough to support a comfortable lifestyle for yourself and your family. Things haven't really changed all that much--or have they? Only a few of us are currently involved in any type of manual labor or production. In fact, more than 80% of the workforce is in a service position according to most of the information we receive in our Human Resource office. In the past 100 years, the tools of the trade have changed d ...

... l the mastodons and live for another season. We really have not changed all that much. Today's workplace requires us to give our best as often as possible. James Kouzes feels that "Opportunities to challenge the status quo and introduce change opens the doors to doing one's best. Challenge is the motivation environment for excellence (Kouzes, Posner 39)". The only exception that needs to be brought out by that is that we need to give people a change to get used to the changes before we introduce more. The major reason for stress is when you do not allow for the adjustment period in-between major changes. " Stress has gotten a bad name. Stress of all kinds is good ----- physical, emotiona ...

Nike - 1,663 words
Nike, Inc. (503-671-6453, www.nike.com) is the worlds #1 athletic shoe and apparel seller. Nike currently employs 20,700 employees, with total sales of $8.78 billion. Nike and the athletic shoe industry have evolved into one of the most competitive market in recent years. But, analysts believe that athletic shoe sales will slow down over the next few years. The slowdown will come with the change in consumer trends. For instance, the younger market is beginning to buy more casual shoes and work boots. Another reason for the slowdown is that people are buying more medium priced athletic shoes and not going for the high price brand name shoes. As a result, this is bringing Nike a lot more compe ...

Hummer Corporation Analysis - 958 words
I am writing to you in regards to the Hummer's target market. According to AM General's market research , Hummer's market is divided into four categories: the realist, the discerner, the conqueror, and the adventurer. The realist considers Hummer for its practical purposes, and will therefore make use of the vehicle's off-road prowess. The discerner is a connoisseur for the finer things in life, who appreciates Hummer's status, but is unlikely to go off-roading. The conqueror is a successful person who wants people to know it, who appreciates Hummer for its exclusivity and attention grabbing looks. The fourth type of buyer is the adventurer, who wants to take the Hummer off-road. By analyzin ...

The generation I am apart of is called Generation X and we are known as a sex crazed and drug-happy one, (that is what the generation ahead of us said.) I believe if that there ever was a generation as such it was the baby boomers; ever hear of Woodstock? They want to stereotype us and ignore to what we have to say. For some reason when we do what they did as teenagers we are bad but when they did it, it was experimenting. The problem I see with my generation is that no one takes us seriously. I had a very positive experience at a young age, because I was separated from children my own age and the family environment. I was placed in a group home at the age of twelve, right before I was set i ...

Proposed Mkt Strategy For Unilever - 566 words

I propose to begin a marketing campaign that will increase their revenue by as much as 50% with absolutely no change to the products in their line.

It seems like everywhere you turn these days there is some beer or hard alcohol advertisement showing up in magazines or on television carrying promises of success and eternal happiness if you use their product. While flipping through several magazines I came upon a series of ads for Bacardi Rum. In the ads a bunch of happy go lucky twenty somethings are shown partying enjoying various drinks in a club environment. In each ad there is a catchy little slogan tailored especially for the situation running across the bottom of the page such as: Cubicles by day. Bacardi by night, Trading floor by day. Bacardi by night., and Buttoned up by day. Bacardi by night. While many might dismiss these ads ...

According to Sauls ((1993), when law enforcement agencies obtain an search warrant, they must be careful adhere to the established fourth amendment principles. When officials prepare warrants, they must also beware of the Privacy Act of 1980. Those that they are considering searching and seizures for all criminal activity, whethe ...

The Cause Of Crime Today - 495 words
The world is not the way it was. At one time people could sleep with their windows up and doors unlocked. In today's society people have to lock their doors and close their windows. Crime is at an ultimate high, and the world is slowly falling apart. This is not the work of the older generations, it is strictly the work of generation X. Teenagers are not what they use to be. A long time ago teenagers were loyal, respectful, and helpful to their parents, but not anymore. Today's teens live their own lives. They do what they want when they want, and they don't listen to anyone much less their parents. These teens drink, do drugs, steal, and murder. They also feel the need to be accepted by the ...

Coke Vs Pepsi - 1,020 words
Mounting competition between Coca-Cola (Coke) and Pepsi Cola (Pepsi) had a very long standing in the American history. Both cola have thus made themselves a household name in the global market, almost 200 countries since their introduction at the turn of the 19th century. The history of beverages industry begins in May 1886, when Atlanta chemist Doe Pemberton developed a drink mix with caramel coloured ingredients, coca leaves, kola nuts and cocaine. The drink was first designed as a drug to help people feel better. Some time later, carbonated water was added to the syrup and that is how Coca-Cola was invented. Caleb Bradhem, a New Bern, N. C pharmacist, created Pepsi in the late 1890s almos ...

The Effect Of Rock And Roll On The American Economy - 1,465 words
How has Rock and Roll Effected the American Economy? Consider, if you will, the life of a teenager living in the 1940's. The Great Depression was finally coming to an end, but the memories of the rough times would scar its sufferers for a lifetime. Caused by a number of serious weaknesses in the economy, the depression saw a rapid decline in the production and sale of goods, as well as a sudden, severe rise in unemployment. Businesses and banks closed their doors, people lost their jobs, homes, and savings; many people depended on charity to survive (**encarta**). Teenagers were given a tremendous amount of responsibility. While their fathers were out doing what little work there was, it was ...

The Debt - 518 words
In the early days of our government debt was considered to be a last resort. The only justification for debt of any significant amount was a war. By 1849 the U.S. Government had accumulated a surplus of 70 Million Dollars. Immediately after the Civil War the debt stood at 3 Billion Dollars. By 1900 this had been reduced to under $1 Billion. By 1919, the end of World War I, the debt had climbed to $25.5 Billion. In each of the following years the debt was reduced, and by 1930 stood at $18.1 Billion. With the collapse of Wall Street in 1929, the country fell into the Great Depression, which lasted until 1940. At that time the debt had climbed to $51 Billion. By the end of World War II the debt ...

If a person that never lived in the twentieth century visited 1997 for just one day, he or she would probably think that we are all trying to kill ourselves. Everything from sports, to music, to advertisements is extreme these days. People are doing things in sports that have never been attempted and are seemingly crazy. In advertising, people of this decade are portrayed as risk-takers, and dare-devils. There seems to be little regard for safety and a lot of regard for fun. I think that advertisers have grasped what this decade is all about, and I am proud to be a member of Generation X. Not everyone in this world is a risk-taker. I would say that most people try to live their lives peacefu ...

The Influence Of Christianity On Modern American Culture - 1,958 words
