Sweet Trials

...The Alleged Trial of the Sweet Family In 1925-26, Dr. Ossian Sweet and ten other occupants from the Sweet home was accused of 1st degree murder and assault. With this in mind, a mob of 500-800 white people were gathered in their front yard throwing stones and rocks at their new purchased home in Detroit consequently because they were the only negroes in the neighborhood. The trial of the Sweet's was a ridiculous and outraged case that was pointless in the end. First of all, back then when barely any blacks came to Detroit both white and blacks had the Northern point-of-view that is to say they didn't bother one another, and both went their own way. Also, prejudice for several years had been gathering had at last burst with violence over Detroit because of the Klan. Whenever a negro would move by a white area your property would decrease in value. Neighborhood Improvement Association was to support neighborhood improvement but their real reason for being was to keep their victimes from Negroes and to keep out Negroes in addition to Waterworks Park Improvement. In fact, the neighborhood would get together a mob and try to force the Negroes out of their neighborood For one thing, when Gladys picked out the house she didn't care if it was in a white or black neighborhood, her intentions was to own a home so she can support and raise her family. In other words not to start a racial violence in the neighborhood.......

Vendor

...Servicing the vendor is an important function to maintain a positive relationship with the customer. The goal is to make sure we qualify and quantify all issues with the vendors. As the owner of a company that manufactures an array of components for computers, we are always prepared to tackle quality assurance issues that may arise. Chaffee’s 5-step process to problem solving is an approach we use in our action plan to address these critical issues, and provide a solution that will benefit the vendor and the overall operation of the business. To paint a picture of how this process actually works, below are the steps recently used to solve a persistent quality issue we had with on-off switches and other servo mechanisms that failed. Step 1 of the process is to identify the problem. Recently there have been persistent quality issues with on-off switches and other servo mechanism that consistently failed before they should. It is imperative to identify the issue to help get a clear understanding of what exactly went wrong. Part of this step requires feedback from the vendor; this allows for more in depth information used to strategize how to improve the inconsistency with the quality issues. Feedback from the vendor is critical because they work hands on with the product daily. Step 2 and 3 is to identify the alternatives, and evaluate the effectiveness of each alternative. Total Quality Management (TQM) is one approach considered to improve the efficiency and......

Hershey Sweet Mission

...Hershey’s Sweet Mission Alia Dodson Dr. Juanita Murrell HR Management Foundations January 27, 2013 Hershey’s sweet mission The redesign of Hershey’s performance management I would fully recommend the redesign of Hershey’s performance management system by appealing to the younger generations. Our world is run by modern technology and fast paced workers. By employing younger workers, Hershey’s will not have to spend a lot of time and money on technology training because the younger workers are eager to learn and ready to take on new challenges. They are enthusiastic about working and jump starting their careers. Young adults will push for results because they will want to reap the benefits of moving forward with their career. The performance management system is a great tool to use because the knowledge is shared between the baby boomers (older generation) and the new millennium (younger generation). This system helps to boost morale between the two types of employees. The older generation is eager to teach the new generation everything they know to make sure all duties are performed. The new millennium workers are also eager and willing to learn and start their career at a well-known company. As part of Hershey’s mission they embrace diversity and want their employee to strive for the best both while at work and socially. It helps boost the employees’ morale throughout the company. In my opinion, the Hershey’s company could improve the quality of life......

The Sweet Thrills

...The Sweet Thrills Many thousands of years ago, people lived to survive and reproduce. Later, when you no longer have to struggle to survive, man invented entertainment; a form of pastime or meaning in life. This could be in the form of music, theater or dance. But the fun was soon not enough, the man sought a more dangerous and thrilling form of entertainment. An entertainment that involved danger and fear, and that could end so badly wrong, which made it even more popular. In short, humans need excitement and danger. Since man still lived by catching his own food through hunting or fishing, lived in constant danger of either being killed or drowned. This made his life an endless struggle to survive. Later, human society divided into two groups: the ruling class and the working class. For the working class meant that they still had to work to survive, although it was not as dangerous as before. The ruling class, or upper class, were however not so much to fight for longer, since they had other people to do the work. This meant that the upper class quickly invented the sport and entertainment, which at the time was reserved for them yourself. But it all has changed quite a bit since then. Most of the population is now about moments in sports and everything else entertainment. Much of this entertainment is, however, turned to more and more extreme forms, such as skydiving or river rafting. This may be because we do not live in a direct struggle for survival, and......

Sweet Potato

...NUTRITIONAL VALUE Sweet potato – is known to be a good source of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and certain B vitamins that are considered essential to human health. Besides the commonly consumed root of the plant, certain tissues in sweet potato are also edible and high in nutritional value. Although studies have confirmed that water-soluble vitamins exist in sweet potato roots and leaves, there has been limited information about how these vitamins are actually distributed in the plants.  Not only are sweet potatoes readily available, inexpensive, and delicious, they have many other benefits for your health. 1. They are high in vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 helps reduce the chemical homocysteine in our bodies. Homocysteine has been linked with degenerative diseases, including heart attacks. 2. They are a good source of vitamin C – While most people know that vitamin C is important to help ward off cold and flu viruses, few people are aware that this crucial vitamin plays an important role in bone and tooth formation, digestion, and blood cell formation. It helps accelerate wound healing, produces collagen which helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity, and is essential to helping us cope with stress. It even appears to help protect our body against toxins that may be linked to cancer. 3. They contain Vitamin D – which is critical for immune system and overall health at this time of year.  Both a vitamin and a hormone, vitamin D is primarily made in our bodies as a......

Erp Vendors

...Who Are the ERP Vendors? Depending on who you talk to, the primary ERP vendors are referred to as BOPSE (BAAN, Oracle, PeopleSoft, SAP, and J.D. Edwards). Other ERP firms include (but are not limited to) Great Plains, Lawson, Platinum, QAD, and Ross and Solomon (see e.g. Keeling 1996; Kersnar and May 1999). For additional information, see PricewaterhouseCoopers (1998). BAAN (www.baan.com) BAAN was founded in the Netherlands in 1978. BAAN's ERP market share is roughly 5% (Stein 1997), and 1998 revenues were roughly $750 million (Bylinsky 1999). BAAN has approximately 3,000 clients in 5,000 sites world-wide. BAAN was thrust into the national ERP software spotlight when they won the Boeing ERP engagement in 1994. The founders recently left BAAN, in part because of irregularities in financial reporting that led to inflated sales figures (Maremont and Rose 1998). Oracle (www.oracle.com) Oracle is the second-largest supplier of software in the world. However, they are perhaps best known for their database system, not their ERP applications. Oracle was founded in 1977 in the United States. Oracle's applications were developed for the U.S. market in 1989 and for the international market in 1993. In 1997, Oracle announced that they were going to market to specific industries tries (Greenberg 1997a) and improve the international characteristics of their software (Greenberg 1997b). In 1997, Oracle's market share was reportedly 10% of the ERP market (see Herrera 1999), and......

Sweet Ladies

...Sweet ladies “Sweet ladies” is a British short story adapted from the original story written by Rachel Cusk and published in 2003. Sweet Ladies is about a woman named Sylvia Furnish who owns a candy store. One day a small group of women come into her store with all of their children and she catches one of the children stealing candy. Sylvia confronts the mother, and the son, named Troy, starts defending his mother, but ends up apologizing and returns the candy bar. The story stretches over a day, and it is written from Sylvia’s point of view. The story takes place in Doniford, which is a city in the southern part of England and it is described as a cold and windy city because it is near the sea. Mostly the characters in the story are in the candy store, which is a two story building where Sylvia lives on the upper floor. The store is not described as good as I could be, but when you read the story you assume that it is a small dark store because she describes the smell as a “chalky smell of sweets” (page 1line 33) and there is a bell over the door that chimes every time someone walks in. In the store Sylvia sells candy, tobacco and some stationary (page 1line 31). Sylvia Furnish is a very strong minded and bitter woman, but deep down she turns out to be kind and loving (page 4 lines 132-133) because she decides to give Troy a candy bar, the next time he comes to the store, even though he just tried to steal from her. The reason why she is so bitter could be because she...

Vendor Selection

...My organization, EIS (Enterprise Information Solutions),  GBS  (Global Business Services) at MWV has many different vendors.   MWV has many different vendors and a Global Supply Chain organization to source and support.  A quick Google search should be enough to convince anyone that there many, if not a vast array, of vendor selection options out there to choose from. If you begin to focus on “current” literature you can observe that the selection techniques have sped along like Moore’s law as we hurtle into this future where ideas and projects have a shelf life and have to happen very quickly, often as a matter of survival.  There is everything from simple, agile approaches to very complex mathematical and computer modeling solutions that attempt to simplify Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM).  The longer you look, the  more you begin to realize just how complicated this subject is.  MWV didn’t get all it’s vendors the same way.  Vendors were evaluated in different ways, some more some less.   Many different approaches or methodologies were used to evaluate the criteria.  Different tools were also used.  There are many different criteria that were considered or ignored. It seems like the list of criteria just grows and grows over time.   Dickson (23 criterion) and Weber (10 criterion) and then Zhang introduced and summarized supplier selection criteria from publication reviews starting in 1966.  .

Sweet Nectar

...Sweet Nectar Tiffany Proctor SCI 115 Professor: Trina McKay February 15, 2012 Sweet Nectar I. Why are some fruits sweet and some sour, whereas others have no specific taste? Most fruits contain about four basic mixtures such as Starch, acids, cellulose and sugar or fructose, depending on the chemical compounds that are present in the fruit tends to contribute to the sweetness or sour taste of the fruit. It’s these same mixtures that stimulate a person’s taste bud so when they bite into a piece of fruit it would give them the indication that the product is sweet or sour. Sometimes, one of these combinations can be more over barren then the other. Such as, the acids can give a piece of fruit a more bitter taste compared to a piece of fruit that produces more fructose or sugar. Which, can become a more sweet taste and in some cases too sweet. When a person thinks of a certain type of fruit it’s naturally expected on how that fruit will taste. For example, when we think of a sweet fruit, we may image items such as: Peaches, Watermelons, and Oranges. This is because we assume that the content will contain more sugar then acid, which would lead us to believe our taste buds will welcome the product, more. However, when it comes to such items as lemons, grapefruits, and cherries, we know that these items contain more acid, then it would sugar, so we are aware that the taste would become more bitter, in response. Meanwhile, there......
