Mcdonald's Case Study

...Working for McDonald's is often portrayed as an undesirable job. In primary school, my math teacher told us that if we did not learn division, we would end up “flipping burgers at ‘Booger King’ or mopping floors at McDonald's.” She is not alone in her negative stereotype of McDonald's. In 2003 the Merriam-Webster Dictionary added the term “McJob,” defining it as a “low paying job that requires little skill and provides little opportunity for advancement." This negative perception of McDonald's is not consistent with the facts. The Darden case study reports on p. 3 that McDonald's defies industry norms, paying wages that are often better than the industry average and offering many employee benefits. For example, McDonald's designed incentives to encourage employees to participate in health insurance and 401(k) retirement programs, and pioneered several types of "flex-time." The company is a leader in employee training programs to develop and retain workers, founding "Hamburger U" in 1961. The company also uses a promote-from-within strategy, with 40% of executive officers beginning as entry-level crewmembers. Overall, McDonald's corporate strategy is to be the world's best "quick service" food provider by focusing on its stakeholders. In order to be successful, the company must deliver excellent products and service to customers; develop, retain and motivate employees and local suppliers; deliver profit to shareholders; and contribute to the community. The company......

The Boston Massacre in the Eyes of the 29th Regiment from happening again. This left a strong impression on the soldiers, making them want to take revenge. Wanting to create some sort of outrage within the town, they carried out that desire almost right after that incident. Samuel Drowne stated that at around 9pm on the 5th of march, he saw a group of around 14-15 armed soldiers of the 29th regiment abusing some people and violently assaulting them. The soldiers heading to King St. where Samuel saw a group of about a dozen people saw these soldiers being armed and went off on them, with some of the people being the first ones assaulted. Most of the dozen people fled. This is was just an introduction of what happened soon afterwards. The soldiers stopped and cried out “Where are the boogers?! Where are the cowards?!”. Their outrages threats, gestures, and brandishing of their weapons made someone ring the bell of the meeting house up King st., in which the bell rang fast, which meant the message of fire. This made some inhabitants come out. One of the sentrys who close, was mistakened by the party by a group of boys as part of the party of outraged soldiers. These boys started arguing with the sentry and the sentry started pressing them with his bayonet, which in return the boys threw snowballs at him, making him run to and knock on the door of the custom house. Two soldiers stayed on guard up the street for main-guard, charging the crowd with their bayonets, which stirred up some disturbance. Capt. Preston was on main......

Elements of Religious Traditions Paper

...scary story, I really liked the effect that the flashlight gave along with the strobe flashes that simulated lightning. I also liked the sound effects that were used in the play. For example I thought the creaky door was a good effect. I thought the set was great. I not only liked the fact that you can see Timmy’s bedroom and the living room at the same time, I also liked that the set was very functional. For example I liked that the Boogeyman was able to disappear in and out of the closet and under the bed. This was a great effect. I also thought the costumes and props were good and appropriate. I think that the clothes of every actor fit the character very well. I thought the Boogeyman’s costume was great. He looked like a giant green booger; it was pretty funny when he came out for the first time. I also liked that the older brother was reading a Bevis and Butthead comic book. This was fitting of his personality, which was sort of immature but funny. The major themes of this performance were youth, fear, and brotherly love. The set of the Boogeyman was quickly removed for the next piece which was a dance performance called Rhythms in the Veins. The lighting for this performance was excellent. I thought the lighting on the backdrop, contrasted with the images that were projected was a great effect. The costumes for this performance were good as well as appropriate. This piece was very unique and delivered a strong message. “Those who do not understand where they come......

...sound, laser light effects and fog machines. I believe these experiences are either a problem child or a cash cow. The competition of extensive home theater systems has to be high making me question if these venues are cash cows because it is the market leader or a problem child because there are many things you can buy for your home gaming system. The foam machine party looks like a kiddie pool that has a large circumference. The one side pours foam into the kiddie pool, everyone gets in, and plays in the foam. I deduct from the information provided that this is also one of their stars for the party atmosphere. The booger wars are an ingenious way to do a variation of dodge ball. You pick “boogers” which are fluorescent green bean bags and throw them at your opponent. If the bean bags stick to you opponents Velcro vest they are out. The game booger wars would be a great team type star. Both the U:launcher and Laser Tag are group games. U: launcher is water-balloon launching by team. I believe that both U:launcher and Laser Tag would be in the dog category, because they have low growth potential and a small market share. The heavy competition and large availability of home versions create a low market share in a high growth industry. It is possible that U:launcher and Laser Tag would be divested or cancelled of over time. The Gyroscope twirls you around just like at the fair. It has high visibility and recognition. I believe this would make it a cash cow......

The Holy Bible Is Fact

...500 years of darkness.  Why is it so important to believe in a 24-hour day, as described in the Bible? Well, in short, if we don't take the Bible at face value and add fallible, human interpretations to it in one area (such as Creation), we're bound to do that in other, SALVATION-CRITICAL areas of the Bible, such as the account of Jesus death and resurrection.  Here's how my friend put it:  Creation and Evolution aren’t mere trivial theological concepts that we don’t have to agree on. They aren’t merely something that each individual decides on for himself. They are the raw truth on which every belief you will ever have is founded. Yeah that’s right… It all starts with Creation. You’re given two options. One, you descended from boogers and monkeys over billions of years because of raw chance. Now there is the twist to that one, that God clapped his hands and that was the big bang, and he decided that he was going to use Evolution to make man. Two, God made everything you see before you in 6 literal 24-hour days.  Creation is basically an incredible grace event that showed the awesome power of God and his sovereignty. It takes a lot of power to make a whole world, and he did it all by Himself. The minute we doubt creation, we doubt a lot more than our origin. We doubt our salvation. When you compromise creation, and say we evolved from some lower form of life, you compromise salvation… you compromise Jesus… you compromise your eternal life.  It’s real simple -......

No Mirror, No Problem

...pick on myself about. Too many days have been spent sulking, and way too many beautiful opportunities and experiences have been merely looked past due to my obsession with the way I look and the way other people view me. The problem itself is so stupid, and indicates I have entirely too much time on my hands. I should pick up a hobby. Anyways, this challenge really changed my view on things. I would just get of bed, clean myself up, throw something on and leave. I always felt really great too, like other people couldn’t see me either, like I was just a walking personality. I noticed I was on time for things, sometimes even early, which is extremely out of character for me. My boss really appreciated it. Sometimes I wondered if I had a booger or something in my teeth, but then I thought it doesn’t matter, at least I don’t have to see it. I’m not saying image isn’t important to an extent, but it’s definitely not as important as many people including myself make it out to be. When I took on this challenge, I didn’t really know what to expect, but I accepted it with arms wide open. I gave it my all and I seriously loved it. It was freeing. Then it just became normal to me. I got used to not looking at myself. I noticed a rapid increase in my happiness which was awesome. I’m not just going to discontinue looking in the mirror for the rest of my life, but I definitely don’t spend near as much time in front of it anymore. I rid myself of that burden and I’d do it again in a......

Older Adults Patient Education Issues Essay and Interview

...He also discussed the new medications he would be on. Mr. Bonds would now be using Mucomyst and a bronchodilator. (These must be used with bronchial stents to keep secretions from collecting on the stent.) Mr. Bonds and his daughter had to be taught the side effects of these medications, what to do if the Mucomyst caused a bronchospasm, and how to use a nebulizer machine. I asked the patient if he was fully satisfied with the patient education he had received over the course of his stay. He stated, “I am very pleased and fell confident in taking care of myself. I just want to get back to my garden and my great granddaughter. If this helps me live longer, then I’ll do what ever it takes to stay alive. I survived a war, I can beat this booger.” I also asked the patient if he felt comfortable administering his meds and the use of his new home nebulizer. He said, “ I recon so. The mediation seems easy enough. The home health people came and set it (the nebulizer) up, showed me how to use it, how to troubleshoot the darn thing and who to call if I needed em.” I asked his daughter if the patient education she had received was adequate and if she felt it was presented in an understanding manner. She stated, “Everyone has been so very kind and pleasant. Everyone has made sure we understood what he (Mr. Bonds) is going through and needs. If we had any questions, they have been answered and in a timely manner. All the paperwork we have received was very detailed and easy to......

Sula Literary Analysis

...the boys. Once the girls were confronted, Sula removed a knife from her pocket and proceeded cut off the tip of her finger. Sula justified this action by letting them know she was crazy enough to do this to herself. Nel, on the other hand, was puzzled by her reaction to this situation. Morrison revealed to the audience how in times of danger, Nel had more self-control and logic while Sula was more unpredictable and had no sense of logic. A young character, Chicken Little drowned to death at a very young age. His death was the reason as to why Nel and Sula grew up to be the way they were. In the novel, Chicken Little was learning to climb a tree with Sula instructing him. Prior to them climbing the tree, Chicken was known for picking boogers. It was Nel, the good child who was picking at him before Sula told her best friend twice to leave him alone. After they climbed the tree successfully, Sula grabbed the boy by his hands and began to spin him around in the air. Moments later, his hands slipped from hers, which resulted in him being tossed in a nearby body of water, drowning in a watery grave. The girls, Nel and Sula, watched the water engulf the young boy. Only to confirm that no one had seen the accidental death, Sula ran to the house that belonged to Shadrack, who was mentally impaired, to find out if he saw. Of course, Shadrack misunderstood Sula’s questioning if he witnessed the murder. Sula, then, assumed that he knew and was devastated by his answer, he provided-......

Animal Rights

...people will treat these innocent animals. However, this kind of emotion encouraged me to determine to help these cats with my best effort. Barbara told us our mission is to clean the wall and edges because these cats sneeze a lot so their boogers and germs spread to every corner. To be honest, those boogers are not the easiest things to clean especially those boogers were already dried and my group and I had to use nails to scratch them off the surface. Believe me, that process was not one of the things I want to recall in my life. But I had no complains, my group and struggled with those obstinate smears for several hours, the rooms look a lot more clean and they smell better. From this experience, I learned how to be more patient with cleaning. I am a lazy person; I only keep my room organized enough for me to find things. But after cleaning these boogers in the house, I feel my cleaning skills are improved and I think I will have more patience cleaning my own room. This experience was a little bit different from what I expected because it was a lot more dirty and it required more work than I thought, but I have no regret. The most difficult part of my work is to overcome the smell of the room and the feeling of scratching those boogers with nails even I had gloves on. What I like about this experience is that I got chances to be with those poor cats and give them love. And most importantly, I feel so loved when I was surrounded by groups of cats. I interviewed......

Fat Boogers

...The most important part about this article Women in Business Life by Jane F Gardner is the fact that it shows hard carved evidence showing how women interacted in the business world. The tablets show women interacting in businesses in the following ways, lending money, borrowing, recovering debts and going to law in pursuit of claims, on behalf of either themselves or their clients. The tablets show and prove that women were used in business and had the same rights as the men did. Theses wooden wax tablets do not have enough evidence to support the idea that men or women were used more for business transactions and there is no other way to know unless someone today builds a time machine to go back and find the truth. But women in society were just at a lower social standing then men were. For instant when it came to witnesses for wills men would much more likely oblige each other. There were two emerging patterns in all of the receipt tablets that were shown in this article. First a declaration by the contractor that his client had acknowledged receipt of the proceeds of the auction which he had promised to pay. Second if the creditor is a man on a receipt tablet either a first person statement in writing that he had gotten his payment, or one written in third person on his behalf was written. If the creditor is a women on the receipt tablets then always a statement always written on her behalf and never a first person declaration. This shows social order again in the......

Short Story

...The Ballad Of Babby Bobby Babby Bobby was a lonely child. His parents ignored him except to scold him for being too lazy, too stupid and too slow. His father had once beaten Babby Bobby for playing in the tool shed, Babby Bobby had to be taken to the emergency room because he kept coughing up blood and had received another beating for causing such fuss. School was no better, at school the other children would put frogs in his desk because they scared him and wiped boogers on his jacket. The teachers never chose him to answer questions even though his hand was always first in the air. Babby Bobby was really very bright but no one noticed. The only people that noticed a thin, shy child like him were the bullies. His days were dark but his nights darker still, Babby Bobby would dream the most terrible dreams, dreams of blood and heat and falling, always falling deeper and deeper through the earth. One morning in early spring Babby Bobby was walking to school when he found a shell. Normally he wouldn't have picked up anything from the floor (his father had beaten him often for picking up things from the floor) but this shell shone in the sun, it sang and danced before his eyes. It was the most beautiful thing Babby Bobby had ever seen. All the way to school his hand would slip into his pocket to stroke the shell with the tips of his fingers. It made his whole body shake at the touch and he swore that this was his and no one else’s. All the pain and the loneliness and the......
