Brazilian Agriculture and the Wto

...weather conditions, water supplies and the performance of the agribusiness in Brazil are essential for such international performance. Considering the Heckscher-Ohlin (H-O) model33, in which the commercial advantage of a country in production arises solely from its most abundant input in the economy, Brazil has a huge farmable area and abundant labor. Therefore, Brazil should have an advantage when trading labor-intensive goods such as agricultural products. Complementary to the H-O model, the comparative advantages principles of David Ricardo34 would explain the performance of Brazilian agriculture in the international trade since Brazil has a low cost of production and can export agricultural goods at relatively low prices. 32 JANK, Marcos S.; NASSAR, Andre M. & TACHINARDI, Maria Helena.

...“Hoodwinked” Watching the Documentary film “Hoodwinked,” I realized why being a black male was so hard in America. Growing up as a child I was always taught as to what was the right things to do in my society were, and how to stay out of trouble. But to me I always felt as there was some type of restrictions on life as to what I could and could not do. I mean I saw other kids my age and color out having a ball, living their lives without a care in the world. I even seen some that were once my friends get carried away in a police car. Hoodwinked the documentary film has brightened my horizon as to why some of these things has happened and why I am not just another 1 out of 3 in society. Janks Morton is a brilliant Black man and more people should look up to him as how he is trying to educate the people of color about themselves, especially the young and old black males. In this documentary he has went abound to the black community discussing the facts as to why the things that are happening are happening. It is not because they were raised wrong or simply because they are black, but because of the thoughts being put into each person’s mind. One of the most damaging forces tearing at young black people in America today is the popular culture's image of what an "authentic" black person is supposed to look like and how that person is supposed to act.   When asking the question “Are there more black males in jail or in college?” our own people......

...adverse effects are reported. Vaccines have been blamed for injuries and deaths. The stories are an eye opening experience when visiting the database. The National Vaccine Information Center is a national educational organization founded in 1982. The center is dedicated to the prevention of vaccine injuries and educating the public in vaccine safety. NVIC does not influence the use of vaccines or discourages it. They want to give the public knowledge to make educated and well informed decisions. They also promote research to evaluate vaccine safety and effectiveness. The center also helps in researching the factors which place individuals at high risk for suffering side-effects and reactions to vaccines. References: Cynthia A.

The author suggests that there are risk factors involved with giving vaccinations; however, these risks are small compared to the benefits the child receives. The diseases themselves are much more serious than the small side effects of receiving the vaccination shots.

Academic Literacy in the Classroom

...just figuring out what to look for (Lewison, 2002). The cause of this, whether from lack of participation in the assigned reading or that the student had trouble comprehending the material was hard to determine at this point. My suggestion to enhance their time on this power point assignment would be to use a graphic organizer to outline what the students need so that there will be structure to what they are researching (Torgesen, 2007). My next observation took place as students were presenting the power point that I had watched them work on. By presenting the project to the rest of the class students were able to give direct instruction to other students while explaining their slides making it easier for the other students to learn (Janks, 2011). This also gives students a voice in the classroom that can translate into much needed skills in real life situations. Educators allowing students to speak in the class through their own dialogue allows students to use their already obtained background knowledge and use it to critically communicate making them aware of there ability to think critically (Beck, 2005). Some groups showed great literacy skills being able to not only fluently read their slides, but also showing great knowledge of what they read. At times the teacher would check for understanding and the students in the group would be able to communicate what they had learned on their own while making the presentation. There were times students showed limited......

Customer Relationship Management

...used when a business is small or geographically separated from the markets served and it doesn’t want or cannot afford to recruit and operate its own sales team. Agents do not purchase and resell; they simply represent the principals whose products they sell. They are order providers, offering business owners the opportunity to access their established networks. Agents generally work on a commission basis. Agencies are common in the fashion industry. Apparel manufacturers broadly split into two groups. Large international, national or regional brands such as Bennetton, Nike and Giordano tend to operate at the high-volume end of the fashion market. Brands such as Managing supplier and partner relationships 337 Sass and Bide, Michelle Jank and Tea Rose tend to operate at the other extreme, selling through few outlets, known as ‘destination outlets’ at higher prices. Whereas the former have their own sales teams, the latter tend to operate through agencies. Agents representing manufacturers fall into two major categories. 1. Manufacturer’s agents represent one or more principals that produce non-competing lines. They provide an outsourced selling function. Generally they agree contractual terms covering lines sold, territorial rights, prices, commissions, order processing routines and returns policy. 2. A selling agent is contracted to sell a manufacturer’s entire output. Very often these are found in primary and production-oriented businesses such as mining, forestry and......

Flight Delay

... passenger delays and passenger by day for 2007 (Umang, 2008) Figure 2. Flight Delays vs. passenger quantity for 2007 Umang (2008) suggested that the relationship between passenger quantity and passenger delay by month was not the same as day of the week due to the influence of seasonal weather patterns (Figure 2). In Figure 3, Umang (2008) shows that in 2007, Atlanta was prone to more passenger delay than 22 other airports analyzed. While Umang’s research looked at delays by day of the week and by month, the research did not include exploring daily delay trends over the period of a year or more. -81- Journal of Airline and Airport Management 4(1), 78-95 Figure 3. Total Passenger Delay by Airport, 2007 Yufeng, Ball and Jank (2006) conducted research on estimating flight departure delay distributions using a statistical approach with long term trend and short term pattern. They used flight data from United Airlines at Denver International Airport for the year 2000/2001. Their model takes into account seasonal trend and daily propagation patterns (Figure 4). This approach showed promise in forecasting delays in future time periods. Their goal is to transfer this model from just one airline at one airport to all airlines at all airports. Mueller and Chatterji (2002) showed that in 2000, 84% of all delays were ground based (Figure 5) with 50% of delays occurring at the gate, 26% occurring during taxi out, and 8% occurring during taxi-in. They also showed that......

Internet Challenges Facing Marketers

...clearly determines where peoples eyes focus on the screen and the results are seen in vivid color displays to determine the words the eye focuses on such as “free” or “service”. This gives the marketer information on what parts of the email get the most attention which in turn gives the marketer the ability to redesign the message itself to improve the effectiveness of the advertisements (Vranica, 2006). It is also important to know your customer base when it comes to determining a good time to send out your email advertisements right down to the day and time. Additionally, as the web audience matures, many firms are finding that an understanding of how their online customer‟s preferences and choices vary across geographical markets (Jank, Wolfgang & Kannan, Internet Challenges 9 2005). Online retailing will continue to be an industry with promise but it will be dependant upon keeping pricing and shipping costs low for the consumers. It will become essential for marketing managers to keep a breast of wireless technology. Wireless technology is beginning to evolve and cell phones are becoming more like hand held computers so it will be important to explore advertising in this arena and how it could impact sales for your company. The Sloan Management Review refers to this type of web communication as the brand-in-hand concept stating that companies like McDonald‟s, Coca-Cola, Music Television, Volvo, Sony Pictures, Nike, and Adidas having already begun......

Det Store L

...mere muntre episoder i dette gruppearbejde kan ikke fortolkes ud fra en teori om envisionmentdannelse. På et tidspunkt siger D9 fx: ”Han bruger hele det der møde med hende til at finde ud af at hans liv faktisk ikke er så slemt.” Det er et forsøg på en helhedstolkning, som D9 i øvrigt allerede har redegjort for i sin førskrivning. Idet han fremlægger den i gruppesamtalen, prøver han at gøre den til hele systemets fortolkning. Og det lykkes også. D3 svarer: ”Ja, for hendes liv er totalt fucked up, mand”. D3 godtager fortolkningen, men det påfaldende i replikken er den måde den formuleres på, ikke det tematiske indhold. Her kan to andre begreber muligvis hjælpe: reduktion og iscenesættelse. Begreberne stammer fra de tyske didaktikere Werner Jank og Hilbert Meyer4. En fortolkning eller envisionment forudsætter en reduktion, og den leveres i D9s replik. D3 kan godtage fortolkningen af indholdsmæssige årsager, men åbenbart særlig af iscenesættelsesmæssige, for den giver ham lejlighed til at fyre denne sætning af, der lyder som om den stammer fra en amerikansk film. Som fortolker i en ordinær dansktime kan han altså samtidig spille rollen som sej gut i en film. Denne interesse understreges yderligere i en af hans næste replikker som overhovedet ikke har noget indhold, men udelukkende er et tegn for en bestemt iscenesættelse: ”Ja. Sure thing.” Gruppearbejdet er fuldt af den slags små iscenesættelser. Mest påfaldende er D9s allerede omtalte iscenesættelse af sig selv som......
