RETURN ON SALES – Values have gone down for the company over the years, and compared to the industry also, the company seems to be not doing well. 3. RETURN ON INVESTED CAPITAL - Values have gone down for the company over the years, and compared to the industry also, the company seems to be providing poor returns on invested capital(both equity and debt) as compared to the industry. 4. RETURN ON ASSETS – Ratio improved a bit, but slid down in the year 2009. When compared to the industry, this ratio is again directs us towards a very pessimistic conclusion about the prospects of the company. 5.

How Similar Were the Dictatorships of Primo de Rivera and Franco?

...The Dictatorships of Miguel Primo de Rivera and Francisco Franco had many similarities as well as many differences. The way they intended to lead Spain shows how they would employ similar strategies as well as different ones. I will discuss their intentions of how they thought was the best way to fix a broken Spain, the way they treated the working class, their tactic to improve economy, fascism, the use of military in their regime and the roles of women in their society. Firstly, it was argued by authors such as Raymond Carr and Francisco J. Romero Salvadó that Primo only intended to rule Spain for a short amount of time in order to find quick solutions to deal with Spain’s illnesses such as social disorder, economic recession and the Colonial War in Morroco (Romero Salvadó,1960, pg 52). In contrast it was argued that Franco intended to rule Spain for a long amount of time. Franco wanted to find long term solutions to resolve Spain’s issues and make a new clean Spain. Due to these differences, it is inevitable that the strategies employed in the dictatorships of Primo de Rivera and Franco are going to differ somewhat. In addition, the way the working class was treated was different amongst the two dictatorships. The author, Raymond Carr argued that Primo’s regime aimed to improve social justice. In Primo’s dictatorship, there were many schemes for cheap workers. Many social services and housing benefits were offered to the working class (Carr Raymond, pg 102). However, it...

Quali argomenti affrontano nel corso della conversazione l’insegnante e la mamma? L'insegnante percepisce la difficoltà iniziale della mamma durante la conversazione e la guida nella descrizione di Diletta partendo dalle cose più semplici: la gestione degli aspetti riguardanti l’alimentazione della bimba, la sua pulizia e infine le sue modalità relazionali con i compagni dell’asilo nido. L'insegnante illustra la modulistica da compilare ed è molto cordiale. Al termine del colloquio vengono ricordati gli orari e il dialogo continua anche al di fuori dell'aula. 2. Quali potrebbero essere le paure della mamma? Diletta fa parte delle generazioni di bambini che fra Nido nel passato, Scuola dell’infanzia nel presente,e ( molto probabilmente ) scuole a tempo pieno in un prossimo futuro,hanno vissuto più tempo fuori dalle mura domestiche. (Milani P.,La Scuola dei Genitori - L’educazione nel cuore della città). Questo mette il genitore in seria difficoltà da un punto di vista psicologico, poichè sente venir meno il ruolo esclusivo di educatore del proprio figlio.Possono nascere sensi di colpa per il fatto di aver “abbandonato” il figlio alle cure di terzi.Queste situazioni di “debito nei confronti del bambino” a volte spingono il genitore a concedergli una......

Primo Benzina Ag

...Primo Benzina AG was a retail chain of petrol stations offering petrol, snacks, restaurant meals, and high-quality service in central Europe. In 2006, the company began operations with two outlets in Stuttgart, Germany, and another two outlets in Basel, Switzerland. The company grew rapidly from four outlets and sales of 2.4 million euros in 2006 to 24 outlets and sales of 38.1 million euros in 2009. Yet the company's rapid growth in revenues was accompanied by declining profitability and a substantial increase in receivables, inventories, and capital investments in new retail outlets. The resulting cash outflows were financed by short-term loans from Dresdner Bank and by slowing payments to trade creditors. Dresdner Bank reluctantly increased the maximum amount available to the company under its term loan to 12 million euros from 10 million euros. In early 2010, Otto Schroder, Chief Executive Officer, and Annegret Heuermann, the company's Chief Financial Officer, completed a review of the company's financial situation. The company's executives were unsure whether the new credit limit would permit the company to implement its growth strategy, since the company now had a limited amount of cash available to finance additional outlays for working capital and capital expenditures. The teaching objectives are to: (1) assess the company's business strategy and its implications for future financial performance; (2) develop cash flow statements and evaluate the impact of operating,......

Holocaust

...to the extensive records, there are multiple books relating to the different perceptions regarding the treatment of Jews during the holocaust; additionally, there are also books that provide different insights to the multiple factors that may have influenced its events. Authors like Daniel Goldhagen and Primo Levi have both provided substantial insight on the Holocaust. Primo Levis’ work, Survival in Auschwitz, corresponds to his observations, his experiences and his reflections as a prisoner in the Auschwitz concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Contrary to Levi’s Survival in Auschwitz, Goldhagen’s, and Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust, explains his theory of “eliminationist anti-Semitism” which influenced the German Identity and that played an influential role during the Holocaust. The films Night and Fog, Memory of the Camps, Luboml and the Gray Zone; and works by Inga Cleninnden and Jan Gross also provide different perceptions on the Holocaust. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to provide a comparative analysis of Goldhagen’s interpretation in, Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust to that of Primo Levi’s, Survival in Auschwitz. The comparative analysis will provide examples found in the films Night and Fog, Memory of the Camps and the Gray Zone relating to Goldhagen and Levi. The paper’s comparative analysis on Goldhagen and Levi will then be discussed in terms of Cleninnden and will conclude with......

The Gray Zone by Primo Levi

...The Gray Zone by Primo Levi – Summary In the chapter, the gray zone, the author Primo Levi describes the human relationships inside the Lager. In describing the gray zone, Levi discusses the different roles of prisoners assigned by the Nazi. The prisoners that did the work were seen as being more privileged which at the end of the day helped them get more food and live better. Therefore, the concept of the gray zone is analyzing the difference between the privileged and the non-privileged in the Lager. The difference can be seen by the tasks that the prisoners carried out, for example, one of the groups were seen as, “Low ranking functionaries... sweepers, kettle washers, night watchmen, bed smoothers... checkers of lice and scabies, messengers, interpreters, assistants’ assistants. In general, these people poor devils like ourselves, who worked full time like everyone else but who for an extra half liter of soup were willing to carry out these and other ‘tertiary’ functions.” This group was seen as harmless and not much different than the underprivileged. The other group of prisoners in the Lager was seen as the enemies to their own people. They were referred to as the Kapos who were “free to commit the worst atrocities on their subject as punishment for any transgressions, or even without any motive whatsoever: until the end of 1943 it was not unusual for a prisoner to be beaten to death by a Kapo without the latter having to fear any sanctions.” The prisoners that......

Alicia Appleman-Jurman vs. Primo Levi

...different accounts of the same event: the Holocaust. There are very basic and obvious differences between Alicia Jurman and Primo Levi, which are shown in the table below. Although these differences seem minor, they had a major affect on the differences between the events Alicia and Primo faced. Age Gender Country of Origin Concentration Camp v. Hiding Alicia Jurman 9 yrs - 15 yrs Female Poland Hiding Primo Levi 24 yrs Male Italy Concentration Camp - Auschwitz Alicia was only nine years old when Poland was invaded by the Germans. Alicia’s young age during the Holocaust earned her the right to be called a “child hero”. It is possible that her young age added to her determination. She knew she was in constant danger, but it did not seem that she had a full understanding of just how serious that danger was. Primo was also very young, and even described how his young age contributed to his naivety: “I was twenty-four, with little wisdom, no experience and a decided tendency….. to live in an unrealistic world of my own…..I cultivated a moderate and abstract sense of rebellion”. Although Primo discussed his immaturity, it still seemed that he had a better understanding of the gravity of the situation. The gender differences also played a role in the different experiences. As a female, Alicia was more able to go into hiding. Even if Primo had escaped, it was too risky for men to hide. Most men, especially young men of Primo’s age, were either in the......

Economics Lecture Masciandaro

...LEZIONE 9 MASCIANDARO La grande crisi ha una caratteristica particolare: siamo partiti da uno spicchio del settore creditizio che ha avuto dei default, poi la crisi si è diffusa a tutto il settore dei mutui e al sistema bancario (rimanendo sempre negli stati uniti) e successivamente si è diffusa a tutto il sistema finanziario. Come mai c’è stato questo effetto domino? Qual è stato il fiammifero? Qual è stata la benzina? Il fiammifero è stato rappresentato dai crediti subprime ad alto rischio (credito erogato a un soggetto che non ha caratteristiche reddituali e patrimoniali per meritare il credito) ciò dovuto a una deregolamentazione che ha caratterizzato il settore creditizio che permetteva (anche a soggetti poco meritevoli) di accedere ai mutui (cd soggetti ninja, no assets no income). In termini macro: Il mercato dei crediti SB crebbe più di sei volte, passando dai 94 miliardi di dollari del 2001 ai 685 miliardi del 2006, con un valore totale nel quinquennio pari a 2601 miliardi di dollari. I prestiti SP divennero un comparto rilevante del complesso dei mutui erogati alle famiglie americani: si passò dall’ 8% del 2001 al 20% del 2006. Dunque: mercato SB mostrava una crescita di quantità e di qualità (?)…la qualità di questi mutui era crescente: si concedeva il mutuo a un soggetto ninja che a sua volta comprava una casa e il valore di questa continuava a crescere (diventava più ricco, solido) gli venivano concessi maggiori crediti. Quindi, in sostanza, cosa succede se......

Primo Levi: a Life Without Humanity

...When alone it is human nature to seek out that which is familiar and comfortable. What happens though, when nothing is familiar? When nothing is comfortable? It is in this situation that Olaudah Equiano found himself. In European eyes he was a domesticated animal that simply acted well trained, and just like an animal after Equiano has been “domesticated” he would never be welcomed back by his people as one of them. Each group may have tolerated him, but he never again belong to either one of them. In the beginning Equiano was simply average. A normal child in his nation, not worth paying any extra attention to. He started growing up as every male in his village did, learning the same skills and the same beliefs. It is common knowledge that people are most impressionable at a young age. In addition to all of that, generally the most influential people in a child’s life are their parents. Think of how many times you have heard a kid said, “I want to be just like my dad when I grow up.” So should not this be the society that Equiano identifies himself most closely with? It almost seems laughable to think that any African (free or enslaved) could see himself part of European society during the slave trade. Yet there are many arguments that can be made to show that Equiano actually did believe himself to be a sort of “adopted European”. One such justification that is often brought up is religion. After living with Europeans Equiano is converted from whatever his......

How Losing the Right to Own Possessions Contributes to the Loss of Identity in Margaret Atwood's ‘Handmaids Tale’ and Primo Levi's ‘If This Is a Man.’

...Primo Levi’s If this is a man, is a book about his personal experience at a concentration camp in poland during the second world war. It is very interesting but at the same time horrific because of what he had gone through. Margaret Atwood’s Handmaids Tale is a fictional novel about a woman living in a distopia in the near future. Their world is in that state because of nuclear war. The women who are able to give birth are called handmaids whose soul job is to give birth to children which aren’t theirs. It is also an interesting book but it does have a less realistic feeling to it. One of the main themes in If this is a man is the ‘demolition of a man.’ It is also a theme in The Handmaids Tale, but it is not discussed. During the rule of hitler, the regime would confiscate all of the prisoners possessions, which in my opinion could make them feel almost inhuman. Primo Levis character in this incredible story has a very strong personality. At one point he tells himself and believes that he has no chance of survival and he does not grasp on any chance of hope that comes along, compared to what many others did. He stays strong and is tries not to lose himself without any of his possessions etc. At first he is documenting exactly what happened to him, and gives no apparent emotion to what is happening. His use of the third person when describing events that occur and emotions make his writing more objective. He tells the reader that from what he has seen loss...
