Mr. Timothy Roger the President and CEO of Scarlet hospital is well aware of the future challenges that the hospital will face. The highway between Walnut Grove and Salem a bigger city will improve connectivity and benefit the common man ironically will have a blow to Scarlet’s business. Timothy was predictive of the big player’s interest over the Walnut Grove after the new highway project. He had more concern over the shift in the preference of patients after the highway to a hospital in bigger city.
He understood about future challenges and began to work along with his employees in developing strategies to implement in Walnut Grove before six months of highway inauguration. New highway will provide more access to the more hospitals in, the bigger city. After the announcement of highway plan, Timothy immediately arranged for a meeting with the senior management to discuss the future challenges. He emphasized the management to develop effective strategies to face the tough competition in the future. He was demanding for strategy that will control the out-shopping threats before one year of highway inauguration.
Such prior intimation about the future scenario enabled the management team to develop effective marketing strategy for the hospital prior to 6 months of inauguration. There was the drastic increase in the advertisement through newspaper and increase in number of billboards. Before three months of inauguration, hospital began to advertise about their quality of service to people through radio that they never did before. Advertisement emphasized about the quality of service and future improvement in the service to the people. There was more emphasis on aggressive marketing and advertisement plan in order to face the completion.
Scarlet Hospital is well prepared to face the competition post highway inauguration. Scarlet Hospital has deployed their senior…...

The Attraction of Woods on a Snowy Evening

...The Attraction of Woods on a Snowy Evening In Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, we follow what appears to be the traveler’s short journey through a beautiful snowy landscape. Words such as peaceful and serene come to mind. During the first few lines of this poem it seems as if this traveler has found an idyllic setting. However, upon closer examination, we have to ask the question of why this traveler has picked “the darkest evening of the year…to stop without a farmhouse near.” Does this traveler have other things on his mind beyond admiring the scenery? Let’s step into the setting of this poem and see what intentions this weary traveler had. Beginning with the title, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” the reader already knows that the traveler is stopping to admire the falling snow in this wintery land. Sounds pleasing enough, yet the very first line alerts the reader to the fact that the traveler is somewhat cognizant as to who’s woods he is journeying through. He goes onto mention that the owner of the woods won’t know he is there since the owner lives in the village. This seems to give some indication that maybe there is more going on in this traveler’s mind. Almost a hint that he is either trespassing on this land or maybe he just doesn’t want anyone to know what he is up to. The fourth line of this poem, “To watch his woods fill up with snow”, seems to be a turning point where the reader is taken from this idyllic setting to......

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

...From the outline of the poem ‘Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening’, it begins with the speaker stopping by a small forest in the evening of deep winter. He savours the lovely view of the forest as he stops with his horse. The silence and tranquility of the wintry landscape captivate the speaker. Although he wishes to stay longer, yet realizing that he has ‘promises to keep’ and some distance to go, so he must move on. The poem comprises four stanzas and each stanza has four lines. The first three stanzas have a-a-b-a rhyming scheme. For example, in the first stanza, the first, second and fourth lines are in rhyme such as ‘know’, ‘though’ and ‘snow’. The exception is the final stanza where all the end of lines rhyme, such as ‘deep’, ‘keep’, ‘sleep’, ‘sleep’ because the last two lines are identical. If we carefully examine its pattern, the third line in each stanza always rhymes with the first line of the next stanza. Hence, this poem is written and arranged systematically by Frost. At first, the speaker is captivated by the scenery he takes in, particularly the woods covered with snow. While he stops, he is wondering whom this woods belong to. From the answering ‘I think I know’, it suggests that the woods is nothing new to him. Then, the speaker affirms that the landowner will not see him stopping there. By talking to himself, this indicates that the speaker is at remote distance from society and he is all alone with his horse. A sense of aloneness fills the mood of......

Adult And Child Victims Adults and children are the victims in human trafficking. Men are exploited for cheap labor. They could be put to work hard all day on farms or plantations and not get any insurance or any benefits that governments offer to legal working citizens or immigrants in the countries that they are sold in. Women and Children are at a high risk for being sold for sexual purposes. Women could be forced to be prostitutes or escorts and children could be bought by pedophiles who want to have sex with children. Men, women and children are the victims of human trafficking that is being done by the criminals that are engaging in these crimes. Criminals Engaging In Human Trafficking The criminals are the bad individuals that are engaging in human trafficking. One of the main reasons for human trafficking is the large amounts of fast money that can be made very quickly so, money is why they do this. The criminals involved in human trafficking are also involved in other organized crime such as extortion and drugs.

Stopping Bullying

...Stopping Bullying Jessica Messer DeVry University Stopping Bullying Rachael, a seventeen year old high school student from Kentucky just wanted a regular high school experience just like everyone else gets. She wanted to be able to go to classes, dances, and the prom without having to look over her shoulder for someone stalking her and might even be trying to kill her. The great high school experience did not happen for her because she started getting harassing and threatening e-mails on her MySpace account. The e-mails consist of her activities during school hours and after school so she knew it was someone at her school. Her parents went to the principal with the problem, but the school did nothing about it. She received an e-mail stating, “I am not going to put you in the hospital; I am going to put you in the morgue.” After receiving this e-mail she committed suicide on October 9, 2006. Many of the children that take their own lives have bullies that don’t understand that their “words hurt”. (Neblett, 2010). Rachael was not the only life that was lost in that year. She had two friends Kristin Settles, (Settles, 2010) and Karissa Smith, (Smith, 2010) that took their own lives after Rachael did. The three teens all went to the same high school and was known as “The Three Musketeers.” Bullying has caused this community so much heart ache and pain that we as human beings need to step in and try to stop another child from making a choice that can never...

...‘weightlessness’. This is used in the ride I am going to study to create the feeling to falling into a pit and thus creating a thrill. Stopping forces Another physics principle I am going to explore is the use of forces to ensure that the ride is safe, specifically stopping forces. A stopping force is, as suggested by the name, is the force needed to stop an object from moving in a certain direction. This stopping force results in a deceleration of the object, the stopping force (F) is calculated by multiplying the ‘mass’ (m) by the acceleration (a), so they are linked by the formula, Force =mass x acceleration. Acceleration is a term used to describe how much faster an object is getting, usually per second, it is calculated by taking the change in velocity (speed in a given direction, usually in m/s) (initial velocity ‘u’, minus the finishing velocity ‘v’), and dividing it by the time taken for this change ‘t’ usually in seconds, this can be written as Acceleration = Change in velocity Time taken for change or a=v-u t The units for acceleration are ms-2 or m/s². The ‘mass’ is, as stated above, how heavy an object is, usually in kilograms (kg). The force itself is measured in Newtons (N) after sir Isaac Newton. In the ride I am going to study, stopping forces are taken into consideration in deciding how powerful to make the brakes in order to stop the ride in time. Gravitational......

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Night

...from the routine of everyday life. The woods may even be a metaphor representing risk, opportunity, or signifying the questions of life or the afterlife. The woods are located outside of the village, on the edge of civilization. The traveler is separated for a moment in time from society who would probably not approve of stopping in the dark and in the snow. The narrator indicated this would not be advised as the second stanza includes the response from the horse and the lack of a farmhouse nearby. The response of the horse highlights certain dilemmas the traveler faces. The first being the beauty of the scene disregarding the practical concern of his surroundings and conditions he is in. Another is the attraction of the unknown, the mystery, the danger that may be associated with such circumstances. The poem describes a state of solitude. When alone, not being seen, being able to watch unnoticed have certain temptations. This state of solitude requires decisions. Many times a simple reminder of the direction needed will assist in determining which path is taken as referenced in the poem by the horses gestures. Title Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening draws the reader to one’s simple and delightful encounter with nature. The title in itself can offer the interpretation of the reader as simply a peaceful and desirable place, or represent ordinary people who have unnoticed beauty or importance that goes ignored by others around them.

According to Nobel Laurate Milton Friedman, “Inflation Is an Old, Old Disease. We Have Had Thousands of Years of Experience of It. There Is Nothing Simpler Than Stopping an Inflation – from the Technical Point of View.”

...Macro Economics Assignment 3 1a. According to Nobel laurate Milton Friedman, “Inflation is an old, old disease. We have had thousands of years of experience of it. There is nothing simpler than stopping an inflation – from the technical point of view.” If inflation were a disease, then what is the cause of the disease? How do you cure the disease? What are the effects of this disease? Please watch the following videos by Milton Friedman to answer the above questions. Inflation is the rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services is rising and, consequently, the purchasing power of currency is falling. Central banks attempt to limit inflation, and avoid deflation, in order to keep the economy running smoothly. As a result of inflation, the purchasing power of a unit of currency falls. Milton Friedman termed it as a dangerous and fatal disease which if allowed to spread unchecked can ultimately destroy the society. It occurs as a result of too much money in the market. The increase in the quantity of money more than the output brings about inflation. The causes of Inflation have been attributed to many things over the years such as greedy businessmen, Trade unions, Spendthrift consumers, etc. However that’s not the case. The main responsibility of inflation falls on the Government. According to Milton Friedman, the primary causes of inflation are as listed below: * Control of the Printing Press: The printing press is under the control of the......
