Owl Creek Bridge

...An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge The time compression and surrealistic details from An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge captures the reader attention and imagination so much that the story becomes plausible. For instance, The author writes, “ the water roared in his ear like the Niagara,” to make the reader imagine what is taking place, hence making the reader believe what is going on in the story (Bierce 86). We sometimes wish that we could control time, rewind, fast-forward, pause, and play, if only we had such capabilities, then we could change the outcome of the situations that we caused for the better. Time does not change; however, time is the measurement of events whether it’s past, present or future. Usually, we have a concept of how much time an activity should take to accomplish, such as going for a walk or getting ready in the morning before going to work. An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge uses time compression when describing Farquhar’s escape, yet we don’t realize this is happening until the end of the story, thanks to a vivid description of Farquhar actions, the way the author describes him as he comes up from under the water gasping for air, or a description of the setting and how desolate the place is while traveling that “not even a barking dog was there to show human habitation” (Bierce 86). Farquhar closes his eyes to slip into his own reality, a reality where nothing, absolutely nothing is impossible with this in mind, Farquhar’s imagination...

Deer Hunting

...Imagine yourself driving home from a grueling day at work. Your completely exhausted, and all you can think about is how good its going to feel to get out of your work clothes and into a cozy pair of sweats. When all of a sudden, BOOM!! A deer jumps out in font of you. You hit it head on and total your car. Now let me ask you, are you for or against deer hunting? Had a hunter had a chance to get that deer earlier, you could have been home already and not have to worry about finding a new car. The greatest benefit to deer hunting is population control. We as humans, have pretty much eliminated the deer's natural predators. If we didn't hunt to keep their numbers down, then the deer population would grow uncontrollably. Eventually ending the species due to starvation and disease. So, in a way, we are actually saving a species by hunting them. And believe me when I say that it's better, and cheaper, to hit them with an arrow or a bullet than with your car. In addition to population control, hunting is also great exerciser. Not only for the body, but for the mind as well. It gets you reacquainted with the sights and sounds of the outdoors. Things that have all been but forgotten due to the luxury of city life. It gives guys a chance to get away and be guys. No wives or girlfriends around to tell them they can't cuss, spit, grunt, or scratch. Now I know these animal rights activists are saying that hunting and killing animals is cruel. They say that......

Fog Creek

...MGT 261 Case: How Fog Creek Software Pays Developers 1.) Fog Creek’s pay structure meets the legal requirements of equal pay for equal work effectively. Fog Creek pays all employees within the same skill level at the same pay rate. This eliminates the problem of finding an employee pay rate equilibrium, as all employees make the same rate, given they are on the same skill level. In regards to product markets, Fog Creek’s structure does not effectively meet these requirements. Due to the fact that Fog Creek pays all employees the same wage, and pays higher wages to keep good employee, their cost to make a product may fluctuate higher than their competitors. As far as labor market conditions, Fog Creek does meet those conditions by raising wages to match the going rate of the market for newer employees that may be hired on by the company. This means that they are staying current with the labor market changes in pay. 2.) I would say that Fog Creek’s pay structure is absolutely objective. Employees are placed in a certain level, based on skill, and all employees in that skill level are paid the same. This means that there are not discrepancies in pay from one employee to the next whom may have similar skill-sets. I believe that Fog Creek’s employees would also care about the integrity of the pay structure in regards to skill levels being assigned properly, as well as the evaluation process being proficient each year. 3.) If Fog Creek grew from a few dozen......

...specific ways to effectively integrate these suppliers in order to meet aggressive target costs. Scott faced many problems during his time at Deer and Company. For example, Scott is required to produce a proposal that outlines how the company is going to manage the early supplier integration into the design and manufacturing of the new Deere Skid-steer loader. On the other hand, suppliers will have to be integrated based upon strict selection guidelines that will prove to be critical in improving the new Deere skid-steer loader. Some of the issues or problems the company was facing. 1.) One of the problems that company facing is Skid-steer loader from Deere & Company lacks of market. Deere &Company did not design, engineering and manufacturing the skid-steer loader itself, on the opposite, they put it in the hand of a third party. They had contracted the engineering and manufacturing to new competitiveness and no significant benefits over competing Holland, which is also sell same product, competing in the same market product and product features. This issue is very important because the Deer & company is facing many challenges on the market. The company who makes the product for Deer and Company has also other customers who sells same product as Deer and Company. Other companies are selling the product cheaper than Deer and Company. 2.) The market access strategy may not work smoothly as its excesses capacity. The reason is because the time......

Balabac Mouse Deer

...------------------------------------------------- Balabac Mouse Deer ------------------------------------------------- Submitted to: Mr. John Lemuel Noche Submitted by: Kim N. Fabia, BSBio3 August 13, 2015 Balabac Mouse Deer April 6, 2008 General Description The small, Balabac mouse deer or Chevrotain does not belong to Family Cervidae, the true deer family, but is a member of the Chevrotain family. Chevrotain is a French word meaning “little goat”. When meat is cooked with “ogsom”, a fruit used to remove the characteristic odor of the mouse deer, the natives found it delicious. Its consumption by the locals caused endangerment to the population. Physical Characteristics Balabac mouse deer are ruminants without horns with small canines oriented sideways. They have horizontally-oriented pupil adapted to night activity. The body is generally covered with brown fur, with blotches of dark-brown and white bands at the throat. The ears stand erect with white undersides. Habitat The above mouse deer was captured near the shore when dogs cornered it. It is however difficult to find during the day. It is known to occur in dense areas of primary as well as secondary forests. At night, they could be detected using a flashlight because their eyes shine brightly. They may also be encountered along roads bound by thick forests. A native recounted that the mouse deer lives in its burrows sometimes protected by pythons which co-inhabit with it. When disturbed, the mouse......

Catfish Creek Canoe Company

...years, Davidson had been building canoes for himself, using them, and then selling them for marginal profits once he was finished with them. When he decided he was going to purchase a canoe, he was shocked by the expensive prices for poor quality boats. Davidson saw an opportunity to build handcrafted cedar canoes, which he would sell for a premium. When Davidson decided he was going to pursue this business, he enrolled in a 12-week business program at the Entrepreneurial Manufacturing Generator (EMG) in St. Thomas Ontario. In August 1998, Davidson was opening up the Catfish Creek Canoe Company (CCC). He was going to specialize in manufacturing and selling 16-foot Peterborough canoes. Problem Statement: Market the Peterborough canoe in a proper location with an appropriate selling price. Symptoms Steve Davidson is going to experience many different situations while starting up Catfish Creek Canoe Company. He is planning to produce 30 canoes in the first year and average one canoe every ten days which would leave a 65 day buffer period; although, it will take him almost 12 days to produce his first canoes. An experienced craftsman can only make 25 to 30 canoes per year, so if requests increase, Davidson will have to hire more employees to insist him with the demand. The canoe industry is also seasonable; people will not be shopping for canoes in the middle of winter, especially in his target market area of Ontario, Canada. During the cold seasons,......

Barton Creek

...The Barton Creek Greenbelt Unlike many cities in Texas, Austin has a plethora of picturesque swimming holes and parks. There are a handful of amazing recreational locations in Austin, but none quite like the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Barton Creek stretches about eight miles long from South West Austin into the heart of the city. When it rains and the creek fills with water, the swimming holes produced make for a great place to enjoy the outdoors. The Greenbelt in Austin Texas reveals itself to be unique and establishes itself as a great recreational location by bringing diverse people together who share a common goal, promoting a healthy lifestyle through exercise, and by inviting frequent park goer's to maintain Austin's beautiful scenery. The Barton Creek Greenbelt is a melting pot where all walks of life can come to enjoy a relaxing environment without the distraction of everyday life. Barton Creek has numerous swimming holes and hiking trails surrounded by plant and animal life. It's hard to tell that you're surrounded by a city with all the trees and plant life around. Every year, when the creek fills with water, it becomes a popular place to swim. One knows they're close when they hear the sounds of a drum circle or the whisper of a guitar on the wind complimented by echoing laughter. Every year I’ve gone to the creek, I always meet so many different kinds of people. It's unusual to see anything but good vibes and a positive interaction amongst the crowd...

Catfish Creek

...Case Study Assignment: Catfish Creek Canoe Company October 2015 Question 1 – Catfish’s Target Market Profile • Davidson is relying on scooping up “thousands of prospective clients” pulled from the Internet alone • There could be countless potential clients responding to the “Buyers Markets” section of the most popular canoeing magazines • He wants to sell to “professionals with above-average income” but he doesn’t specify which professionals and what constitutes a high income • Davidson is very vague with respect to his target market and assumes he’ll have clients from online and print sources • He did not include an estimate of the size of his market segment • He has not narrowed his target into a segment of potential clients, who, for example, could be: o Males 50 – 75 o Cottagers o Retired o Hobby Fishers o Remote Camp Owners o Gun and Bow Hunters o Living in the Muskokas Question 2 – Adequate Research? • Not only has Davidson underestimated his competition, he has relied on Statistics Canada information almost exclusively • He has also made some awkward assumptions that I think would be fatal: o After his “sticker shock” episode, he assumed he could sell his “handcrafted” canoes at a premium without first understanding whether specific market prospects existed or could be tapped into o He assumed that he could build canoes “relatively easy” since he had completed three in the last ten years and sold for a “marginal profit” o He had......

Deer Hunting

...Week 7 (Assignment 6) The Way to a Good Deer English November 22, 2011 Deer hunting is a very demanding hobby. The one thing that everyone must keep in mind when hunting is your safety and the safety of others. The reason for this is that you are using a weapon that can cause serious harm to you or someone, but this is not what this essay is about. I want everyone to actually learn what it takes to be a hunter. Being a hunter takes skill and understanding how deer sense things. The first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when thinking about hunting is killing Bambie. This is not the way I think, because of how I was raised. I took up hunting at an early age. I would always go with my father. So, here is what I have learned about hunting deer. You, as a hunter have got to know where the deer are. This is the easy part. Just find some good land with a water source, and good food that they eat i.e. acorns, wild persimmons trees, apples trees, corn, clover, and winter rye. Scout the land after locating these, to see if you can find there bedding areas. Finding the bedding area is the hard part. Deer in general will bed down in areas where they feel protected. Like in open areas surrounded by thick brush, or in low lying areas. After finding these good spots look for trails leading to their food, and water sources. These trails are what will make you or break you when it comes time to kill that big buck. The trail usually will lead to natural pinch points in the land.......

The Creek Indians

...Creek Indians April 22, 2012 Abstract Native Americans are some of the most important figures in American history. They were here before the first settler built upon this land of the free. The battles that were fought were battles that were necessary but sometimes we forget the human side of these Indians. Known as salvages and brutes it is no doubt that the war was bloody and the Indian fight for survival was fierce. Nevertheless, these tribes were a people that joined until the very end. Native Americans have played a major role in the history of the United States and its growth. While they struggled against the taking of their land and fought many battles, there were those in battle that sought peace and only wanted to protect their people. There were marked differences in the culture and religions of all the tribes as well as differences between them and the white man. Yet they were some remarkable men and women that came from those tribes. Native Americans have a unique relationship with the history of the United States. Creek Indians The Creek Indians were a great part of history for early Georgia and Alabama. They lived there most of the early days and during the colonial period. While the Indians outnumbered the colonist, they also owned more land and enslaved the African people. By the year of 1760, the Creeks had become a minority population, and by the 1800 they had given their land to the new state. Christopher Columbus arrived in the......
