...with humor while others sink into depression. I like to fill my world with humor and happiness; however, there will be tragic situations at least two times in our lives. If I wrote a book about my life, it would be a comedy and a tragic book. When I run into trouble, I tend to laugh in its face and walk away. When I was in high school, some of my “friends” tried to get in my car with some drugs. I laughed so hard in their face and drove away with them sitting on the sidewalk. When I get sick or in pain, I tend to laugh through the pain. A week ago, I woke up choking because my throat was closed. When I took my medicine, I started to laugh because I said to myself, “I am not going to go out like this!” When my mother is having a bad day at work, I would try my best to make her laugh. If my mom is sad, I would also get sad. However, I am not a sad person, so I try to make everybody cheerful when they are around me. When I was in high school I had a girlfriend. She would sometimes come to school gloomy. When I tried to cheer her up, she would get mad at me, but she already knew I wasn’t going to stop, so she would cheer up. The most tragic thing anyone can go through is someones elses death, rather it is their relative or a very close friend. Some people can walk it off, or some people can sink into depression. When my grandpa died two years ago, my mom took it to the heart for a week. She walked in off the next week like a champ. I took it a little bit harder. I was......

In the report we have used largely the information provided by different banking personnel. All the people who have helped us with the raw data, our warmest regards to them.

...CHAPTER 1 Suggested solutions 1.1 Select an organisation with which you are familiar, and outline some of the main changes that have taken place in its business environment in recent years. 选择你熟悉的一个组织,简要说明了一些近几年在其业务环境中发生的主要变化。 Qantas, the national airline of Australia, has faced a number of changes to the business environment in recent years, including deregulation of the domestic aviation industry. This resulted in increased competition as new companies attempted to enter the industry. The most notable of these was two failed attempts by Compass to succeed in the market and gain market share by savagely cutting prices. Its major competitor, Ansett Australia, collapsed in 2001 resulting in Qantas having almost a monopoly for a short period. A powerful UK airline, Virgin, has also entered the market, with a history of taking legal action against market leaders who attempt to intimidate them using predatory pricing. Further, Impulse Airlines, a local airline, started operations, only to be eventually taken over by Qantas. On top of all this, the international terrorism crisis of 11 September 2001 saw a substantial contraction of international air travel for a period of many months, leading to the collapse of several United States airlines many times the size of Qantas.......

...Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Book Report By: Matthew R. King International Management 04/11/16 After carefully reading Hot, Flat, and Crowded; I was able to form a relationship with the author Thomas Friedman. Hot, Flat, and Crowded speaks directly with the reader about issues going on in our world. Global warming is a major issues that Freidman presents, and he presents actions on what we should do as a civilization to counter the affects of global warming. Hot, Flat, and Crowded is all about creating a more sustainable world to live in, but too many people, organizations, and businesses are not taking the appropriate time to follow the actions that Freidman suggests. We have to change the way we operate as people and as businesses, because we are harming our environment our ecosystem cannot keep up physically with the way we are living. Also some adverse effects are adding to the destroying of our environment, ozone layers, and our ecosystems. The energy we use everyday is growing at a significantly higher rate every year, and our ecosystem cannot keep up with our usage. “Planet's surface temperature may warm up in response to a doubling of carbon dioxide -- a byproduct of fossil fuel burning -- they typically predict a rise of between 2.1 and 4.7 degrees Celsius.” Earth could become hotter than thought, study warns.
