“Keeping families closer”

Super bowl commercials this year in 2012 were primary based on Beer, Cars, and other advertisement’s with a great deal of sexual appeal. However, the least prerogative commercial is the one that was most intellectual and heart hitting. The Ronald McDonald House Charity Corporation commercial stated that “When families stay closer, Children heal faster.” The skit in this commercial provided great imagery and a scenario that was actually true, making this commercial very effective. Thanks to this charity, more children are capable of healing faster and reaching better health.

The pathos of this commercial was heavily illustrated throughout the entire commercial, starting with the big, bright smiles of the mature individuals. These smiles of hope create the emotional effect, which help to capture the attention of the viewer. The scene of the child not only held the attention, but created the feeling of sympathy. This as well created the persuasion, to encourage people t to donate to the Ronald McDonald house charity, so that other sick children have the advantage to be cured. Lastly the music in this commercial gives a lot of power, the slow soft tone sung and the lyrics used are high effective of the creation feeling of sympathy.

The ethos in this commercial all tie back to Ronald McDonald. The statement “When families stay closer, children heal faster. The logos are the Ronald McDonald logo at the end and the statement” Ronald McDonald charities are happy to support kids with leukemia” Also the narrative voice.

At the end of the commercial, pathos, ethos, and logos all play a huge role in making this commercial effective. If one were missing, it would not be as persuasive. From the skit in the commercial, to the music, to the narrative sentences spoken, it all accumulates in the end to persuade the viewer to donate to…...

...A Closer Look at Business Education June 2007 ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ : Bottom of the Pyramid INTRODUCTION: Global poverty exists today at a startling scale; while the exact numbers are debated, some estimate that four billion people worldwide live on less than two dollars a day.1 According to C.K. Prahalad and Stuart Hart, both Aspen Institute Faculty Pioneer Award recipients, companies should not ignore these traditionally overlooked people, collectively dubbed the “Bottom of the Pyramid,” because of their considerable combined purchasing power.2 Thus, if companies are innovative enough to create or tailor their products to the economic realities and life needs of these people, a significant profit can be won. At the same time, this group’s entry into the market would hopefully better their quality of life and aid in regional economic development. Three well-publicized examples will help illustrate the base-of-the-pyramid concept. First, Grameen Bank was started by Nobel Prize laureate Muhammed Yunus in Bangladesh to offer mini-loans to entrepreneurs who wouldn’t qualify for traditional bank loans based on collateral.3 As of May 2007, over seven million people have...

Keeping the Faith

...Corinthians 10:23 that all things are permissible, but not all things are beneficial. These are things that we could live better without. Just like in a race, the athletes have a choice what kind of clothing they would wear, but if they wanted to win, they must choose the light fabric. There are certain things in our lives that are not really sins, say for example our lack of commitment, it’s not really a sin, but it hinders us from growing and from being a blessing to God’s people. Another example is being late and entering a legitimate relationship while still in school. What are the things in your life which you know are not sins but are hindering you from running the Christian race more effectively? What or who are those that are keeping you from fully committing and serving the Lord. The Scriptures tells us to lay those aside. The Bible likens those things to weights that make it harder for us to run. It doesn’t have to be a sin for it to hinder us from growing in the Lord. The important thing is that we identify them and do something about them. B. Sins - Paul tells us to let go of dead works in our lives, those that are not beneficial, then all the more we have to let go of sins. Sins that easily ensnares us, this are the sins that easily trap or entangle us. So that instead of running towards the finish line, we stay in one spot because we can’t free ourselves from it. That’s one thing about sins, we are easily get ensnared but it’s so hard to free ourselves from...

...My Family Gender roles do not really play a part in my family. The family that live in my home are myself, my husband, and my son. My son is here on weekends. We also have two cats. We recently moved from Sanford to Lyman, but my son has been in the Sanford school system all his life and situated within a special Ed program that works for him, his father and I decided that keeping him within the program that already benefits him it would be best for him. So during the week it is just my husband Rick and I. So maybe there is one roll, but it certainly isn’t by gender. My husband is the cook in the house, as I hate cooking and am not good at it, nor do I really want to be. We both do the cleaning and such. So there is really no separate “jobs”. When my son is here, he does help take out the trash and is responsible for keeping his room clean and cleaning up his own messes. Kristopher, my son is 13. I definitely think that roles have changed over the last generation, but even more so from the generation before that. Both of my parents worked full time jobs, but my mother was always the one to come home and do the cooking and cleaning, while my father and yes with a beer in hand watched TV. Mom also made almost all of our cloths. I did not have the typical childhood as when I was a teenager I was put into foster care, as was my brother. There is not much more that I remember about what my parents did or didn’t do, they divorced when I was maybe seven or eight. My mother......

Keeping Luxury Inaccessible

...Keeping Luxury Inaccessible Keeping Luxury Inaccessible By David Ward (PhD), Claudia Chiari (MBA) All correspondence to Prof. David Ward, Via Fornari 46, 20146 Milan, Italy email: Co-author: Claudia Chiari, Via Vittorio Alfieri 27, 52100, Arezzo, Italy Abstract This paper sets out to explain and decipher luxury and especially inaccessible luxury with the intent to provide enterprises three new analytical tools to ensure they stay ‘in front of the pack’. The paper starts by assessing what luxury was and is today and how and why it has evolved so far. It looks at Mass and Intermediate luxuries and then discusses three models to assess also Inaccessible luxury. The three models specifically developed by the authors are: 1. The Tangibility of Luxury, 2. The Spectrum of Luxury and 3. Brand Identity of Luxury. It will be shown that a luxury product can indeed migrate towards intermediate and mass luxuries when its traits become tangible and when rarity turns into abundance and luxury becomes accessible. The authors promote the idea that this process can be controlled by the enterprise or industry providing the brand, product traits and distribution are managed accordingly. The authors also examine the particular linkage between rational and emotional value through the brand and map the degree of luxury of a brand by assessing what actually differentiates the luxury products from the rest. This is not done in the traditional way of assessing the marketing mix (4P,......

...Karishma Allauddin  Mr.Melvin English 102 September 9, 2013    Family Importance         What does your family mean to you? Regina Barreca is the writer of "Nighttime Fires." Barreca talks about the relationship between the father and son where the father seeks happiness when he sees houses burn down. On the other hand, Lisa Parker is the writer of "Snapping Beans.” Parker talks about the relationship of a granddaughter and a grandmother. The granddaughter has just moved in to a new town and she feels she is very different then others. Both the poems have many similarities they share. In "Snapping Beans" and "Nighttime Fires" both poems have understanding, support, and bonding.        First thing that is common in both the poems is their understanding. Understanding is extremely important to have between our family members. In "Nighttime Fires" the understanding moment is when the mother does not like seeing people houses burn down, but she still goes with her husband to see the houses burn down because she understands that is the only thing that makes him happy. "My mother watched my father, not the house. She was happy only when we were ready to go, when it was finally over and nothing else could burn."(24-25). Comparatively, in "Snapping Beans" is when the narrator wanted to tell her grandmother how her school went, but she didn't because she didn't want her grandmother to get tense. Like when she says, I wanted to tell her the evening star was a planet, that......

The reason for this in 2011 an Amtrak passenger train was struck by a semi-truck. When this happen it took Amtrak two full days to account all the passengers that where on the train, then after they had their final count they come to realize that there were two people missing from the train. With this project the integrated software for security will track all passengers at all times during the travel on Amtrak trains. With this when a customer will purchase a ticket from Amtrak all there information will be encoded on the ticket. With this ticket it will be the only way that passengers will be able to open any door within the railcar.

The Play Closer

...The play closer seems to have characters in the play with opposite Personalities and perfusions. Danial, who writes obituaries, describes the lives of people after they die. Were the character Anna, who is a photographer, takes professional pictures of people which describes their life while they are alive. Larry is a to doctor and always seems to always tell the truth. And Alice, who is a striper, seems to lie about a lot of things such as her name, and the way she got her scar. However it was ironic that she chose to tell Larry at the club her real name and no one else. Alice didn’t even tell Dan her real name even when she was ready to “love him forever”. This play seems to show how just one action can affect a person’s life greatly. Dan ran into Alice because she was hit by a car. Because of this they fell in love. Dan then was able to become a writer because he finally had a topic to write about which was “Alice.” Because he was able to write the book he needed pictures taken for advertisement and this is where he met Anna, the other girl that Dan fell in love with. Dan then, acting as if he were Anna on the internet, convinces Larry to meet with Anna at the aquarium. This part of the play confuses me. I am not sure why Dan decided to play a prank on the doctor he met the day of Alice’s accident. Also I am not sure how he knew that Alice was going to be at the aquarium at exactly that time. This is because Larry was the one that said he would be able to......

Closer to Heavens

...Closer to The Heavens Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe illustrates a story about Catholic religion. The Lady from Heaven played a major role in the Mexican City, Tenochtitlan citizen lives. During a time when refuge was hard to find, the people of Mexico City found peace, on the hill northwest of the city. Senora tells Juan Diego “ Know and understand I am that I am forever the Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of the True God …” (Burciaga 1995, p.105). As she gives him insturtions on going to Bishop Zumarraga. The Lady of Guadalupe is a part of the Raza simply means that The Lady of Guadalupe blesses all, heals all, and sees all people as equal. Even the poor are able to have blessing vested in them. The attitude of the people of Raza changed on December 12, 1531. Selecting Juan Diego was a divine choice, the chosen one was obedient, and possess abundant amount of faith to deliver the message. He says “I beg of you, Senora send an important person, known, respected and esteemed to take your message so that he will believe it ( Burciaga, p 106). Juan faith was not wavering, although no one took his confessions seriously, he continued to stay the course. During that time many of the people of Mexico City were poor and needed to strength in someone other than the elite. The people who were oppressed would not have believed in a the story if it came from a person of a different social change. The lady from Heaven told Juan “you are my ambassador worthy of my confidence “ (Burciaga,...

A Book Keeping Error

...Article 5. A Book-Keeping Error (The Economist, 30th August 2007) Key Points of this article are:   “How far the Fair-Value Accounting System should be pushed in banking sector”.-this is the main issue More accurate disclosures are better according to some bodies those are setting the standards. The commercial banks are very reluctant to expose the idiosyncrasies of their loan books to the glare of market scrutiny. How the article relates to the theory: There are reasons behind the attractions of the fair-value accounting system. Based on the current market prices, the commercial bank shows the actual historical cost and the financial health of a firm. And by taking the arbitrary dates, the calculation of the net worth becomes easy. As shown in the accounting principles, a firm’s viability become simple by the fair-value system and the shareholders along with the regulators spot their financial trouble quickly. Implication to Management Practices: In case where market value is rising, if loans are being valued at their historical cost, they are likely to be sold. No matter the market is undervaluing them; this is the only way of realizing profit. As bringing the idea of frictionless economical closer may magnify the effect of remaining distortions; it’s not needed to eliminate a single market imperfection. Evaluation: The article focused on the practical and the theoretical aspects of the fair value system of book keeping. This paper also draws some underlines on......

It makes them feel a part of the organization. d) It also outlines the management role as critical decision makers, which may drive them into being more responsible. e) It provides an interactive platform between management and other staff. f) It also checks on how employees work, thereby, assuring accountability. On the contrary, the approach has the following disadvantages: a) It has a possibility of killing staff morale in case views of some are not represented and put into effect. b) At times when discussions are too long, the decision making process may still be too slow.                             Reference   Groysberg, B.

...It is argued that the family plays an important role in society, but times have changed and now the family is much less important. "Family is not an important thing. It is everything" is Michael's J. Fox phrase. As far as we know some people are sure that the role of the family has become not so important. But some people disagree with this point of view. On the one hand, there are no such big close families as it used to be. That is why the role of the family is not so important in the big society. Secondly, people have become more indepent. Moreover, there are so many institutions to bring up our children: schools, universities which give them not only education but rules of behavour. In addition to htis, the role of friends has increased they help us to find work, to get ducation, to solve problems. On the other hand, the members of the family are always the closers people to help and to do everything for us. Secondly, th efamily gives us example of behaviour in society which is an important moment for adoptation in our life. However, the family brings up children and they become members of society. Taking all these factors into account, I should say that the role of the family is very important nowadays bacause a family is a part of our everyday life for many years. In the family we find the examples for our future behaviour, get acquainted with the world around us and receive our first lessoms of life....

Family of Woodstock

...Family of Woodstock Jenny Munoz March 10, 2011 BSHS/355 The Family of Woodstock, a social service agency, was founded by those individuals who felt that certain factors presented the opportunity for them to start a social service agency as a direct result of the Woodstock Festival held in a town approximately 100 miles from their location. Many of those who attended the Woodstock Festival brought little, if any, personal belongings or food with them. They were sleeping in parks and spent time hunting down food and/or shelter. In many cases, the attendees were looking for shelter, food and clothing. The community came together with one resident by the name of Gail Vaisl offering her home as well as her telephone service to prevent the Festival attendees from roaming through the area and possibly being arrested for vagrancy. This began the Family of Woodstock whose mission is “to provide confidential and fully accessible crisis intervention, information, prevention, and support services to address the needs of individuals and families. The scope of the agency's vision allows us to bring to bear resources to address a broad spectrum of human problems.” (Family of Woodstock, 2014). The commitment that the staff at Family would not tell people what to do nor pass judgment on them, the staff was instructed to listen and encourage those who came for help to make choices that would be of benefit. The qualified workers goal was to refer them to the existing agencies, but be......

...Family I believe family will last a lifetime. Family is always going to be there for you whether you having a bad day, or even a good day, no matter the time or situation your family will always be by your side. Nobody gets the option of choosing the family their born into or the family members, this is why I am so grateful for mine. I feel I was blessed to be born into such a loving, caring, compassionate, supporting family. Friends come and go, and that’s okay because you always know that no matter what your family will always be with you. Not everyone is lucky to have a family. Many people grow up in orphan homes, not knowing the true meaning of family. The only family they ever knew growing up was the staff where they lived and the other orphans that are in the same position as they are. Some people have to deal with tragedy, seeing one of their family member being taken away from them. You just have to cherish your family as if it was the last time you were going to see them. My family is the farthest away from perfect, yet I wouldn’t trade them for anything. We’ve had our ups and downs, especially through my parents’ divorce, but in the end I believe it only brought us all closer, and really made us the strong family we have become today. No matter what obstacle life has thrown our way, we have always overcome the situation because that’s what families do; they fight through the hard times, stick together, never stop loving one another until the time comes where......
