Wang was an experienced entrepreneur and had been working for KFC for seven years. No other fast food companies were currently operating in the People's Republic, so Wang did not have anything to go by and nothing to help him evaluate the attractiveness of the Chinese market. The main downsides of operating in China were huge demand on managerial resources and the low prospects of significant hard currency repatriation. The first decision that Wang was faced with was where to open the location ...

Single Sex Classrooms - 589 words
Your article introduces us to the new idea of having single sex classrooms as well as single sex schools. This examines the experiment that has been implemented in Mountain View California where they recently opened a middle school for girls.

This not only creates an issue for their futures, but is also unnatural and detracts from what could be learned in a coed classroom.

The Vienna branch of the Rothschild banking consortium was established by Salomon Rothschild in 1815, after the end of the Napoleonic Wars. His brother Carl established the Naples branch only a few years after him. The biggest struggle that the Rothschilds faced during these early years was acceptance. Anti-Semitism kept them out of the elite social circles, necessary realms of connection making, and thus hindered business. This was especially felt in Vienna and Naples. Salomon wasnt even able to buy a home in Vienna until 1842, as there were laws forbidding Jews from owning property within the Imperial capital. Through his wealth alone was he able to receive an exemption from this rule. He ...
