Iceland Crisis

...DEEP FREEZE International Trade Assignment Case Study of Iceland FinancIal Collapse MBA in Marketing&Communication “The most spectacular bankruptcy of the 2008 financial crisis was the collapse of Iceland's financial system. This collapse is especially intriguing as Iceland is not an underdeveloped country!” ---EHMAN BROTHERS Introduction Iceland is an independent Nordic European island country situated at the confluence of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Its traditional industries are fishing, processing of fish, aluminum, and strong energy industry. During several years of economic boom, the Icelandic financial system expanded considerably. A nation with a slight population erected a banking system whose total assets were 10 times the size of the country's GDP. Greedy bankers, inexperienced upstairs, corrupt political elite, the deregulation of the financial system, make the banking sector grew faster than any other sector of the Icelandic economy. Following the global financial crisis in 2008, Iceland became the most dramatic economic meltdown. The key problem with the banks essentially owning all the bankrupt highly leveraged business (that were and are essentially good ocean harvesting fishing business) and the downgrade in sovereign debt rating led to capital flight. With the collapse of exchange rate of Krona, 3 main banks (Landsbanki, Kaupthing and Glitnir) are nationalized because of the serious liquidity problems of banks...

Water for Iceland

...people want to avoid the substances present in coffee and soft drink. California consumed the most bottled water in the whole United States water market. The leading country importing bottle water to US is France; the second place is Canada and Iceland just hold 9.7 percent market share. In United States the bottled water business is regulated and controlled at two levels. The first level is by the federal government, and the second one is by the various state governments. For example, like California and Florida. The Iceland government was troubled by high inflation rates and low financial reserves. Iceland is highly import-dependent. As for the products exported, it has little diversity and is dangerously dependent on its fish crop and world fish prices. The participation of nonresidents in Icelandic joint venture companies may not exceed 49 percent. Problem/Opportunity: Consumer dissatisfied with the purity, taste and odor of city tap water.

...General info The history of music in Iceland has no parallel in other European countries, or, probably, anywhere else in the world. In Iceland the music of the "Middle Ages" predominated well into the nineteenth century. Due to Iceland's isolation, centuries of musical development on the European continent had gone by unnoticed. Even ordinary four-part choral singing was first heard in the fifth decade of the 19th century. Instrumental music, in the usual sense of that term, was non-existent. When the "new" music finally found its way to Iceland, the population, with certain exceptions, especially as regards church music, proved to be more receptive than might have been expected. Latent creative talent soon emerged, and musical development has been exceedingly rapid in the twentieth century. In the 1980’s Icelandic music was on the world music map with the emergence of artists such as the Sugarcubes. In more recent years Iceland has seen international success of many more artists, such as Sigur Rós. Classical music Jón Leifs (1899-1968) is one of Iceland’s best known classical composer writing many of his works about Icelandic nature which bore titles such as Hekla, Dettifoss and Geysir. The Iceland Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1950 and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009. Pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has garnered an international reputation as well as cellist Sæunn Þorsteinsdóttir and Daníel Bjarnason, a young classical composer and conductor. Opera The......

...Chapter 1 1. Free software is software that users have the freedom to distribute and change. The three main characteristics of free software are: The source code has to be distributed with the program, you cannot restrict people from redistributing/modifying/using the software, and users must be allowed to redistribute modified versions under the same terms/licensing. 4. The Free Software Foundation is the sponsor of the GNU Project. GNU developed many of the tools that are part of Linux. Linux is the name of the operating system kernel developed by Linus Torvalds, which has been expanded and improved by thousands of people on the Internet. Torvalds’ kernel and GNU’s tools work together as the Linux operating system. Chapter 2 1. Installing Fedora/RHEL is the process of copying operating system files from a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive to hard disks on a system and setting up configuration files so Linux runs properly on the hardware. Several types of installations are possible, including fresh installations, upgrades from older releases of Fedora/RHEL, and dual-boot installations. Chapter 3 1. A live system gives you a chance to preview Fedora without installing it. It does not write to hard disks. 4. The ubiquity utility is a graphical installer written mostly in Python.

...THREADS MANAGEMENT IN LINUX OPERATING SYSTEM Thread of execution is the smallest sequence of programmed instructions that can be managed independently by an operating system scheduler. The scheduler itself is a light-weight process. The implementation of threads and processes differs from one operating system to another, but in most cases, a thread is contained inside a process. Multiple threads can exist within the same process and share resources such as memory, while different processes do not share these resources. In particular, the threads of a process share its code and its context . On a single processor, multithreading is generally implemented by time-division multiplexing (as in multitasking): the processor switches between different threads. This context switching generally happens frequently enough that the user perceives the threads or tasks as running at the same time. On a multiprocessor or multi-core system, threads can be truly concurrent, with every processor or core executing a separate thread simultaneously. Many modern operating systems directly support both time-sliced and multiprocessor threading with a process scheduler. The kernel of an operating system allows programmers to manipulate threads via the system call interface. Some implementations are called a kernel thread, whereas a lightweight process (LWP) is a specific type of kernel thread that shares the same state and information. Threads are created like normal tasks,......

...operating system kernel, Linux version 0.01. Linux evolved into a fully functioning Operating System (OS) with one of its first distributions created by the Manchester Computing Center, MCC Interim Linux, using a combined boot/root disk (Hayward, 2012). Linux luminaries, Slackware, RedHat and Debian began to rise between 1992 and 1994 as well as the Linux kernel growing to version 0.95, becoming the first kernel to run the X Windows System. The Big Three, Slackware, Debian and Red Hat were instrumental in the anticipated launching of Linux version 1.0.0 in 1994 with 176,250 lines of code. Over the next five years the big three released some of the greatest Linux distributions, including the Jurix Linux, which is allegedly the first distribution to include a scriptable installer; the installer allows an administrator install across similar machines. The Juris Linux distribution is mostly noted in Linux history because it was used as a base system for SUSE Linux which is still in operation today (Hayward, 2012). Launched in 1996, Linux 2.0 had 41 releases in the series; inclusion of critical operating system features and rapid releases helped to make the Linux operating system the OS of choice for IT professionals. Another notable moment in Linux history was the release of Version 2.4 which contained support for USB, PC Cards, ISA Plug and Play and Bluetooth, just to name a few; these features demonstrated the versatility and the advancement of the Linux kernel since the......

...northwest of the British Isles and directly below the Arctic Circle. Iceland is often known for its natural Beauty; volcanoes, hot springs glaciers, and auroras are prominent features. It is affectionately called the land of fire and ice. Iceland is relatively small yet modern and industrialized state with a modest population of just under 340,000 and total area of 103,000 km2 (39,769 sq. mi). Iceland has a varied topography but it is one of the most volcanic regions, in the world. Iceland started to form in the Miocene era about 20 million years ago from a series of volcanic eruptions on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where it lies between North America and Eurasian plates, this cause the island to be active geologically as the plates are constantly moving away from each other. Due to the volcanic eruptions, Iceland has a rugged landscape dotted with hot springs, sulphur beds, geysers lava fields, canyons and waterfalls. There are approximately 200 volcanoes in Iceland and most of them are active. In addition, Iceland lies on a hotspot called Iceland Plume which formed the island millions of years ago. The interior portion of Iceland is mostly an elevated plateau with small areas of forest but little land suitable for agriculture. In the north, there are extensive grasslands which are used by grazing animals such as sheep and cattle. Most of Iceland’s agriculture is practiced along the coast. More than 13% of Iceland is covered by snowfields and glaciers, and most of the people......

...the creation of the Linux kernel by Linus Torvalds in 1991, many versions of Linux have been created. Due to the open source of the kernel, this gives advanced users the option to alter the kernel to their liking. This, in turn, has yielded a near endless amount of distributions and versions available out there. In my research, I have found the main versions of Linux have derived from Debian Linux, Slackware Linux, or RedHat Linux. However, the first distribution meant for the masses was Yggdrasil Linux (Citation). First, there were versions such as MCC Interim Linux developed by University of Manchester and TAMU developed by Texas A&M, however these were in-house developments not really meant to be widely distributed. Yggdrasil, one of the first widely distributed version of Linux, was described as a Plug and play Linux. Its’ initial release took place in December of 1992, but in the form of an alpha release. The beta version was released in 1993, and the official release the next year in 1994. It was the first Linux operating system distributed via a live CD-ROM. It included an automatic configuration of the software installation, much like we see today, making it very easy for even a novice user to set it up. Yggdrasil was not free, however, the company charged $39.95 per copy (Yggdrasil Computing). After conducting research of the number of distribution of Linux, the exact number could not be pinpointed. There are so many developers tweaking the Linux kernel and......

...International Business January 10, 2015 Iceland Iceland was settled by the Norse settlers in the second half of the 9th century who migrated from across the North Atlantic. The migration was because of a shortage or arable land in Scandinavia, and a civil strife brought about by the Norse King Harald. When the Norse settlers migrated the land was unsettled and they could claim the land because there no inhabitants. The settlement last from 874 to 930 at that point most of the island had been claimed by Alþingi, the assembly of the Icelandic Commonwealth, was founded in Þingvellir. In the original manuscript that was made it listed 435 men as the first settlers and a lot of them settled in the northern and southwestern parts of the island. Iceland is an island that is located in the Atlantic Ocean near the Article Circle. It is also located between Greenland and Norway. It is the second largest European island behind Great Britain. Iceland is about the same size as Kentucky and Virginia. It takes about five hours to fly from the US to Iceland. Iceland has a population of 317,351. The median ages for people in Iceland are 36.4 years old. So the people in Iceland are of the younger generation. Icelandic is the official language that is spoken in Iceland. It is a sub-group of North Germanic languages. The Icelandic language is a cornerstone and a large part due to a strong literary heritage. The Republic of Iceland’s political system is similar to the United States by......

Communication in Iceland

...To: Paul McCluskey From: Cody Zemp Date: March 11, 2014 Subject: Iceland Culture Assignment With the communicating in cultures assignment handed out in class, I was assigned the beautiful country Iceland and am writing to you to inform you of what I have learnt throughout my research. The capital of Iceland is Reykjavik, and to my surprise is a lot easier to say then I thought, and is pronounced rake-a-vick. Reykjavik currently holds 119,000 of Iceland’s 323,000 people. The Country of Iceland has many different celebrations and holidays that occur each year. One of the biggest celebrations annually is Sumardagurinn Fyrsti, which is the celebration of the first day of summer and includes parades, sporting events and organized entertainment. The celebration is held on the first Thursday after April 18th. Now, in most countries around the world, April is considered a month of spring, with summer beginning later in June. In Iceland, April marks the beginning of summer, which has average temperatures from 4-5.7°C, and 32-42°F, which is not exactly sun tanning weather. Given the cold temperatures, visitors in the month of April will still have all of the summer outdoor activities available to them, which include: horseback riding, glacier walking, caving, and even snorkeling can be done. The summer in Iceland is comparable to Canada’s early spring. April is typically a great time to visit if you want to avoid the summer crowds and......

Iceland Geography

...Analysis and Impact of the Geologic Features In Iceland By: Tan Kai De Introduction Iceland is an island located in the middle of the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean, and with a population of just over 300,000, it is the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with its people inhabiting a total land area of 103,000 square kilometers. To put that into perspective, the Netherlands is about two and a half times the area (, 2015), but has nearly 60 times the population at nearly 17 million inhabitants (, 2015). This is despite the fact that the cultural history of the country can be dated back to about 800AD, and settlement occurred from 870-930AD. However, the true history of Iceland goes much beyond than that. Iceland has a rich geologic history that dates back thousands, if not millions of years, that makes it one of the most fascinating countries in the world. In this essay, we will explore the origins of Iceland from its formation to its current size, some of the unique features that Iceland has that most countries do not have, as well as a few significant geologic events in Iceland that have shaped Icelandic and even global events. Formation of Iceland Diagram 1 from Diagram 1 shows a general idea of how Iceland was formed. Iceland is situated in the centre of the Eurasian and the North American plate. The two plates move away from each other due to the magma undercurrents, due to the convection......

...modified. 2. Why is Linux popular? Why is it popular in academia? Due to the operating system's distribution among universities, students were able to become used to it's sophisticated developing environment which helped these graduates succeed in the industry as UNIX was being spread throughout the world. 3. What are multiuser systems? Why are they successful? Multiuser is a term that defines an operating system or application software that allows access by multiple users of a computer. They are so successful because they allow for collaborative projects to be conducted with much more ease and efficiency. 4. What is the Free Software Foundation/GNU? What is Linux? Which parts of the Linux operating system did each provide? Who else has helped build and refine this operating system? The GNU is a completely free (in the freedom sense) operating system built by Richard Stallman and many of its components, except for the kernel, were completed in the early '90s. Linus Torvalds wrote the kernel for Linux, which was also intended to be a free operating system, in the early '90s. The two systems then were combined together to finish Linux, with it's original kernel and added features supplied by GNU. Linux was born off the internet with hundreds of people helping to develop it in its early years. 5. In which language is Linux written? What does the language have to do with the success of Linux? Linux is written in the C programming language, and this helps Linux be portable......
