GDP- The GDP is a term used to measure economic progress and is calculated by the sum of all goods produced in a country during a year. The GPD only measures the goods and services made within a country. The GPD does not include profits made by overseas companies (O.C. Ferrell, G Hirt, F Ferrell 18).
GDP per capita- The GDP per capita is a term used to measure the economic progress of the average citizen of a country. The GDP per capita is an approximation of the value of goods produced per person in a country, and is calculated by dividing the countries GPD by the total number of people in the country (Web Finance, Inc. 1).
In 2003 U.S. CIA intelligence had information that Saddam Hussein, an enemy of the United States and dictator of Iraq had legitimate programs to build weapons of mass destruction, and was planning to pass those weapons onto the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization. U.S. intelligence believed that Al-Qaeda would ultimately smuggle those weapons into the United States and violently murderer millions of Americans (Lobe 1). To prevent such an atrocity from occurring in the United States, former President George W. Bush decided that the only course of action against these murderous terrorists was to defeat them abroad before they could attack us at home (Bush 7). On March 18th, 2003 the United States launched operation Iraqi Freedom. The goal of this operation was to remove Saddam Hussein from power, prevent Al-Qaeda from obtaining weapons of mass destruction, and defeat Al-Qaeda (Bush 8). President Bush stated that the goal of Operation Iraqi Freedom was to defeat Al-Qaeda and protect the United States by creating a prosperous and democratic Iraq. If successful, Operation Iraqi Freedom could inspire millions across the Middle East to rise up against Al-Qaeda and other terrorist governments and demand freedom and democracy in their own countries.…...

Thus, in such a competitive environment, it is important for a new brand to be different: to offer a new concept in order to position the brand as the new favorite dessert in the consumer’s mind. Define your product According to a study managed by, United States’ children and teenagers do not eat enough fruits[1]. Moreover the obesity rate in the United States grew up last decades: ““Over the last three decades, obesity rates among children and adolescents have nearly tripled,” said CDC Director Thomas R.

...Dessert is the most wonderful part of a meal. (most general sentence) I have never met anyone, from any part of the world, who did not like dessert best. (Use of “I”= more specific sentence) The best dessert is ice cream because it tastes delicious, is liked by almost everyone, and it can link us to happy childhood memories. (thesis statement with 3 points named) First, ice cream tastes better than any other food. (1st thesis point in general topic sentence) What food can rival its creamy smoothness, or the delicious feeling of this soft, cold dessert as it slips down your throat?

...Failure As Confucius once said “Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.” Some of history’s most influential people knew exactly what it was like to fail numerous times before they became successful. Walt Disney, one of the most creative and imaginative people was fired by a newspaper company because he was said to have “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Abraham Lincoln one of the most influential leaders of the United States, had multiple failed business attempts, and while in the armed forces went to war as a captain and was degraded to a private when he returned.(Michalko, 6,8) Success takes hard work, dedication, long hours, pain, and a lot of disappointment. If some of the most influential people in American history have failed then why are others so afraid of it? When I asked a group of people about what they feared most when they tried something new most of them replied “failing.” When asked why, they didn’t really know. They just didn’t like the idea of not being successful. Successful people like to achieve high standards; they become so afraid of failure that it turns into a handicap. We let the fear hold us back from our true potential. This fear causes some people to not try something altogether because they are so afraid of the feeling associated with not accomplishing something. Today, we live in a society where failing or messing up is viewed as unacceptable, people want to do something...

...A distributed system is a collection of computers connected to a network of distributed middleware (software connecting client and database: software that manages the connection between a client and a database) . This allows the computers to communicate to each other and also share resources. While allowing the user to use the computer as he or she would use a single integrated computing facility. Examples of failures in a distributed system include, stop failure, Halt failure, Network Failure, and Distributed File System Namespace access failures. Distributed File System Namespace access failures in Windows On Windows Vista and later one of the following error messages may occur: Windows cannot access \\\ The connection may fail due to any of the following reasons: Failure to connect to a domain controller to obtain a DFSN namespace referral, Failure to connect to a DFSN server, Failure of the DFSN server to provide a folder referral. This error typically occurs because the DFSN client cannot complete the connection to a DFSN path. To resolve the issue , evaluate network connectivity, name resolution, and DFSN service configuration (How to troubleshoot Distributed File System Namespace , 2010). Evaluate Connectivity "connectivity" refers to the client's ability to contact a domain controller or a DFSN server. If a client cannot complete a network connection to a domain controller or to a DFSN server, the DFSN request fails. Use the following tests to......

Room for Dessert & Case Summary

...Room for Dessert & Case Summary Situation This case presents a business plan for a startup company called "Room for Dessert" (RFD), which is a fine dining restaurant focused on serving a niche market that includes desserts and beverages such as tea, wine and spirits. RFD has created a business model which provides a strategy to differentiate itself from typical fine dining restaurants by offering an unpretentious atmosphere focused on serving affordable, high-quality desserts. The company expects to serve areas of high traffic, such as downtown Boston, and will target college graduates and professionals who earn a significant amount of income and enjoy socially interactive environments. From a venture capitalist perspective, there are several appealing and unappealing markets for RFD: Appealing Markets • "Unconcerned consumers": those who generally not concerned with health and nutrition and therefore seek out decadent desserts • "Vacillating consumers": those consumers who are moderately concerned with health and nutrition but are driven by taste when selecting restaurants • "Upscale urban singles and couples without children": generally have sufficient income and white-collared occupations and are socially driven Unappealing Markets • "Committed consumers": those are remain health conscious; generally will not seek out bakeries and dessert-oriented restaurants • Consumers with less disposable income: will not be......

...The ABC’s of Failure – Getting Rid of the Noise in Your System For the past 40 years, I have observed many companies, including DuPont (where I spent 27 years) pursuing planned maintenance with the standard tools of planned maintenance: inspections, planning, scheduling, materials procurement, CMMS systems, etc. with the same results. They succeed for a while and get their percent planned and scheduled maintenance up to the 80+ only to see that drop back later to 60 I am amazed how many of the companies we work with have had this experience. This pattern of behavior has led us to conclude that the reason for this experience is that only 60% of the normal work of maintenance is inherently plannable. The rest of the work is created by random acts of what we are now calling care-lessness. The sites where we see people break this pattern and achieve 92% to 96% planned maintenance for the long term without regressing, are the ones who eliminate the inherently unplannable work. Of course, this cannot be done by maintenance alone. Everyone who does work at a site contributes to the defects that create the unplannable work, and therefore everyone must participate in eliminating the defects that create the 40% of the work that is unplannable. In the diagram below we attempt to more clearly articulate the true significance of Defect Elimination by outlining the ABC’s of failure. Fundamentally, failures happen because things that exist are not perfect. To reduce failures we must......

...During the design and implementation of a reliable distributed system is a very important. The failure of this system can result in easily repairable errors, such as hardware, software, or catastrophic meltdowns where hardware overloads, hardware crashes that were not protected. Faults can occur in any of the components of a distributed system. There are four types of failures more commonly known as compute cluster which allows applications to run on more than one computer (node). Data centric systems that involve high volumes of access are more difficult to make fault tolerant. They require failure monitoring software and a special configuration. These types of systems are high availability clusters that allow two or more computers and a set of shared disks. Any application can be installed on the shared disk which allows all other computers access, with certain restrictions designated for each user or pc. The running application's node has exclusive access to the application's data on disk. Specific applications may run very well from this type of system. The application may fail on the shared disk and the nodes exclusive access is terminated and is granted to another node in the cluster. The application is restarted on a new node, which the user will notice a slight interrupt and lose of some data. Design issues are very important in utilizing the multiplicity of processors and storage devices transparent to users. In a conventional, centralized system the user interface...

It Failure

...Jennifer Ventura ACCT. 4100.001 February 26, 2015 IT Failure- Target Breach IT failures have become more and more prevalent these past few years, or at least now that they’re publicized more often since they are now associated with our personal information. Before we heard about breaches and hacking, we would think of IT failures in a different sense such as a stores system not working properly or even their website not responding. We are often reminded that we are lazy creatures and with that we tend to think about how to make are lives simpler not safer. When we stand in line at the store we never stop to think about how secure our purchases are while using our debit/credit cards. Well that’s not the case now, in late November of 2013 that all changed for us. Target experienced one of the largest retail breach back in 2013 when it was discovered that there was malware found in their systems from a third party affiliate (Riley, Elgin, Lawrence, and Matlack, 2014). The breach occurred between the days of November 27th and December 15th (“Data Breach FAQ,” 2015). Meaning this massive breach went on for a total of 19 days, which leads to the question: How could Target allow this to go on for over two weeks without noticing? This was a very well thought out attack because it was one of the busiest seasons of the year, catching Target off-guard. Despite the fact that, it was such a busy time, it does not excuse the fact that Target made a tremendous error. Prior to this...

It Failure

...are a few major features that were supposed to be a big hit with this phone and the pre-installed software. One of them is having the ability to see live post from the news feed of your Facebook wall popping up every time you turn on your phone. Another is being able to use Facebook messenger while also exploring other applications within the phone. Critics believe that these features are some of the very reasons that the phone wasn’t successful, and maybe they were right. Why would you want to be bombarded by one application 24/7 when you can simply turn on your phone and access that application in seconds just like the other millions of applications that Android users have access too? From the research done, I believe the phone was a failure before it even hit the market. There was no excitement after Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, unveiled Facebook Home to the public on April 4, 2013. “The event, in fact, seemed like a non-event.  The stock ended the day slightly up, no one raved, yet no one trashed Zuckerberg or his company.” (Satell, 2013) If Facebook Home was not a big hit then how could a basic HTC device that is preloaded with Facebook Home be a big hit? Especially when the same day the phone was released you could download the Facebook Home application on other, more high-tech Android devices such as HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Note II. On the release date of the HTC First, AT&T had the phone set at a price of $99 if the customer signed a two-year......

When studying the Cheesecake factory and how the operations run, i have learn that when it comes to their code of conduct it is quite large. With in the code of conduct i have notice how important a few rules are and to how they run their business.

It is also important that the staff and employees must understand the Cheesecake Factory ethnics and belief systems due to the fact that it may differ with regards to cultural conetent values, and beliefs within the company.

The term dessert can apply to many foods, such as cakes, tarts, cookies, biscuits, gelatins, pastries, ice creams, pies, puddings, custards, and sweet soups.
