Las Vegas Sands Essay

...Executive Summary Las Vegas Sands Corporation (“LVS”) is arguably the world’s premier casino resort operator. With its operations in Las Vegas, Macau, Pennsylvania, and its new development in Singapore and Europe LVS, is now well-positioned to capture a large slice of what is becoming an increasingly huge pie. They are the biggest company in its industry with a USD market cap of 35.1 billion as of 2011. The casino operator has been a pioneer in opening new markets in Asia, and will continue to aggressively focus on a variety of other development opportunities where it’s needed. However, LVS has faced significant financial challenges since the economic recession began in the fourth quarter of 2008. Among the significant ones is its large amount of long term debt currently at 9.58 billion. Las Vegas Sands Corporation has strategically sold some of their “non-core” assets such as the Venetian retail mall, and its Shoppes at the Palazzo in order to remain compliance with its credit covenants. With this said, there are now in the position to return to profitable operations with its Asian pipeline and its new development project in Europe with the assumption that upon completing these projects it will generate enough revenue to get rid of all their debts. In addition, to their debt issues are the ongoing lawsuits that have brought a threat from government officials questioning how the company conducts its domestic and foreign operations. This is an issue of growing importance......

...Sand... I could almost tell you exactly how many grains lay in this desert. The days are long and hot, and the nights are longer and cold. It’s not a mistake that I am here, I chose to live this way. My name is Gabriel, I am twenty-eight years old. The Wahiba Sands became my home five weeks ago.... I used to be wealthy, with a family, I even owned the largest law firm in the united states. I used to be happy, and filled to the breaking points with love, and life. Until my company that I spent every penny, and every ounce of me on, fell under. My deep black hair began to turn a grey color. We started losing cases, and with a rising rate of failure came the rising debt. The company was going to crash, and I knew. A few months later, the bank came around to take the firm out of my hands. I made a horrible decision, I went to the bank that all of the pension money was stored. I emptied all of the accounts, and carried the money out of the bank in bags. As I was leaving I called my wife, and told her and my son Adrian to pack their things and get ready to leave the country, and that I would explain when I got home. I pull into the driveway, and see my wife standing outside the house. Frantically I told her what just happened. “Gabriel what on earth are you trying to do?!” she exclaimed. “Please just get in the car, I don’t have time. I need to leave, if you wait any longer I’ll have to leave without you and Adrian.” I proposed. She stood, unmoved, and with an unchanged mind...

Sand Dunes

...components which form the most unique environments known to man. These components, or ecosystems, are themselves complex, however also fragile. Whether intentional or not, humans have negatively impacted the environment to the point where intervention and management is necessary to preserve or remediate these fragile ecosystems. One such ecosystem is located in the Southeast desert of California, the Algodones Dunes. Although sand dunes are not a typical or popular ecosystem, they do have structural dynamics, human affected biogeochemical cycles, a need and plans for management, and implications of species interactions in that management. Structural Dynamics The Algodones dunes is a band of sand dunes reaching as high as eighty meters that extend seventy five kilometers in length from the Colorado River in Baja California northwest toward Indio. They are eight kilometers in width at the widest point bordered by the Chocolate and Cargo Muchacho Mountain range in the east and the Coachella Canal in the west (Sweet, Nielson, Havholm, & Farrelley, 1988). The sand dunes are formed by Pacific westerlies and weather fronts which blow in a southeast direction. Because of this, the crescent dunes form with a more gradual windward face toward the northwest and a leeward face or sudden drop and slope facing the southeast (Sweet et al, 1988). Home to a highly adapted and diverse plant and animal life, the Algodones dunes are also home to some endangered species such as the......

Alberta Oil Sands

...An analysis of the cost/benefit profile of the Alberta oil sands The Alberta oil sands is one of the largest and most controversial energy projects on the planet; whereby large quantities of bitumen are converted into oil through complex and energy intensive chemical processes. The tar sands contain approximately 170 billion barrels of oil, and are the third largest proven reserve of oil in the world. It is expected that this operation will continue to experience rapid development which may result in a diverse array of negative and positive impacts that could significantly influence our society. The advantages and disadvantages of the Alberta oil sands can be analyzed through four key components: political, economic, technological and environmental toxicological perspectives. The cost/benefit profile of the tar sands is evident, and in order to properly address this issue, a plausible and realistic solution must be implemented. Therefore, this will hopefully lead to a decrease in the environmental toxicological and public health impacts associated with the tar sands while preserving socio-economic growth and technological advancement. The political aspect of the oil sands is mainly regulated through the government of Alberta. These legislative members continually promote the expansion of this project as well as advertise its contributions to the economic and technological sector within Canada. The current governmental......

This report examines the problems, options available and the different scenarios dealt with. Various factors have been taken into consideration for an attempt to take a wiser decision.

A Line in the Sand

...Book Review A Line In The Sand. Randy Roberts and James S. Olson. New York: Simons and Schuster, 2001. 320. In the novel A Line in the Sand the coauthors Randy Roberts and James S. Olson discuss what they consider the three battles of the Alamo. The first battle discussed in the novel is the Texas Revolution and the events that took place on March 6, 1836. The second battle of the Alamo took place 50 years later and was intrigued by two women who preserved the sight of the Alamo as we know it today. Lastly the Alamo is discussed as a battlefield and the way people see the Alamo today in different perspectives. The purpose for this novel is to inform the general public of the facts of the Alamo from the American and Mexican perspectives. I found this book to be a very interesting but hard read and I assure you I know a lot more about the Alamo then I ever did. Olson and Roberts do a very good job on making the reader think about how they “remember the Alamo”. Roberts and Olson appear to me as very educated historians; I do not disagree with them. Both authors examine their personal views of the historic event, while Exploring through the impact that the Alamo “story” has had on today’s society. The book brings out the events in a much more “alive” way unlike they are told today. Television and movies is an impact of the writing of The Line in the Sand. As we all know most movies are either entirely made up or they make false assumption towards reality, such as the......

Oil Sands

...Oil Sands Essay Supporting the Oil Sands and Oil Production Did you know that over the past 35 years, Alberta has made $1.2 trillion from the oil sands? Did you know that the oil sands have provided over 1,700 jobs for local aboriginal people? I strongly believe that the oil sands and oil production are good assets for Alberta. In this essay, I will be informing you about the advantages of these assets. Firstly, the oil sands provide many benefits to aboriginal people, the founders of Canada. Next, the oil sands serve as a dependable source of energy for Alberta as well as for Canada. Oil also has a huge growth potential. Lastly, the oil industry provides many jobs and maintains Alberta’s economic growth. To start, the oil sands give aboriginal people a chance to work and earn a living. Over the past 3 years, oil companies such as Shell and Husky have given close to 1,700 jobs to hard working First Nations. Aboriginal students also have the chance to benefit from the oil sands. Scholarships are available for young adults looking to pursue studies in the oil business at post secondary institutions. First Nation corporations have made a total net profit of $8 billion over the past 20 years of doing business in the oil industry. There are also generous ‘oil patch’ organizations that have donated over $20 million to aboriginal communities in need. The First Nations workers are important as they work to provide energy for Canada. The next of many advantages of the oil......

Alberta's Oil Sands

...Alberta’s Oil Sands: Are They Really That Bad? College Communications – Section 106 Friday, November 26, 2010 Alberta’s Oil Sands: Are They Really That Bad? One of the most recent topics related to the environment and how poorly Canada is performing, when it comes to managing its pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, is Alberta’s oil sands. Most of us have seen the commercials put out by the Canadian Association of Petroleum producers (CAPP), created to inform us of the innovations and research that is currently being done to reduce their pollution and carbon footprint. Are these commercials presenting us with straight facts or have they been presented to us in an attempt to sway our opinion? Whichever the case may be, we have a right to be properly informed and our government has a responsibility to analyze, inform and act with the best interest of Canada’s environment and its people in mind. When we compare what we are told by the government and the association representing the oil sands industry, with scientific facts, we will see where our government’s true interest lies and how damaging the oil sands really are. The most obvious effects of the oil sands is the area consumed by their operations. To date, more land has been reserved for oil sands operations than that of the entire country of England. Amongst all of this land, the oil sands have what are called tailing ponds. These are large bodies of contaminated water, created as a holding area for the......

Sands Corporation

...La fuente de conflicto que se detecta en Sands Corporation reside en la percepción que tienen los supervisores sobre la función o rol que desarrolla el departamento de RRHH en la empresa (e incluso sobre su propio rol en la gestión de RRHH). Estos entienden que el departamento de RRHH les está quitando atribuciones, capacidad de decisión y derechos que son propios de su cargo. Los supervisores ven al departamento de RHH como un “competidor”, en lugar de verlo como una fuente de ayuda en la que apoyarse para mejorar la competitividad de la compañía. Los supervisores no se encuentran integrados dentro de la gestión de RRHH y lo ven como algo externo, cuando en realidad deberían interiorizarlo, ya que la gestión de RRHH se debe entender como una responsabilidad de línea, en cuanto que ellos son los máximos responsables en la gestión de RRHH sobre su departamento, y una función staff, en cuanto a que deben contar con la ayuda de los especialistas del DRH para resolver cuantos problemas le surjan y para asegurar directrices uniformes en la gestión de RRHH. Profundizando un poco más en el origen, podríamos decir que el departamento de RRHH y los supervisores no se encuentran alineados entre sí, y por tanto, difícilmente lo estarán con las líneas estratégicas de la empresa. La falta de dicha alineación, se puede encontrar en un problema de comunicación de la estrategia por parte de los altos cargos de SANDS COPORATION, hacia supervisores y Dep. de RRHH. Respecto a......

Las Vegas Sands Corp

...Las Vegas Sands Corporation History The Las Vegas Sands Corporation started in 1989 as “Las Vegas Sands Incorporated” with the purchase of the Sands hotel and casino by entrepreneur Sheldon Adelson and his partners. In 1995 Sheldon Adelson bought out his partners in The Interface Group (TIG), the group that made the initial purchase of the Sands, and began planning the Venetian. In 1996 the Sands was imploded and in 1999 the Venetian was opened. Five years later, in December of 2004, Adelson took the Las Vegas Sands Inc. group public and it has since been the Las Vegas Sands Corporation (LVSC). Financial history The initial offering on December 14th, 2004 consisted of 23,809,524 shares at a price of $29 per share. From Bloomberg Business week, also shown in Appendix 1, we can see that since the first full month that LVSC has been traded on the NYSE its average record monthly high stock value was $103.05 and its average monthly record low stock trade value was $10.17. Within the last five years, the LVSC has suffered through the world’s economic downturn just like any other company. In Appenix 2 we can see that the early part of 2009 was the worst, in terms of stock prices, for the LVSC. We can also see that within the last two years, LVSC has also regained a lot of ground. There current share price is on the NYSE is at 51.50 and the performance of the Macau and Singapore markets continues to positively increasing the value of the overall company. Political......
