...Memorandum April 12, 2012 ------------------------------------------------- SUBJECT: Smart Couples Finish Rich Analysis Mr. I would like to follow up with your inquiry made during last week’s meeting regarding David Bach’s Smart Couples Finish Rich. I have since completed reading the book and will present and discuss several of the author’s major insights which I believe will be most beneficial to you. Bach presents the content of his book in a 9 step process which results in a financially successful future for couples. The book is part personal finance and part relationship counselor. It discusses how money can often be the root of many arguments for couples and how to avoid this problem by working towards a financially secure future together. I will discuss the following the three most important points in Bach’s book and why they can be so valuable to implement into your life: * Be open with your partner with regards to finances and work towards goals together * Small frivolous spending is what keeps many from becoming rich * Start early in building your retirement fund An early step in Bach’s process is “Plan Together… Win Together” long term planning with your spouse and developing a system which you can assess your goals. This entails keeping track of financials and establishing a common ground between the couple. This is very important so you can establish a benchmark system so...

A Man

...A shirtless young man stares out past the camera as if he is looking at the logo above his head. He needlessly clings to the rock to further accentuate his impressive body structure. The logo above his head reads “DOLCE & GABBANA” in a bold semi-transparent font. A small bottle of something is juxtaposed to his left. It is the item they are trying to sell, a sports cologne. This advertisement is very effective because of the use of ethos and pathos. Although those two parts are heavily used in this ad, logos is not present as much. Even with that being said many people are going to buy this particular cologne based on ethos and pathos. This is true because Dolce and Gabbana is a very well-known company, which plays a huge part in ethos with credibility and authority. Pathos is also used heavily with people wanting to look like that or women wanting their men to look like that; this makes the reader believe that if they wear this cologne women will be more attracted to them, and that they, too, can look as good as the model in the ad. This advertisement was featured in Muscle & Fitness magazine. This particular magazine is aimed towards classy young to middle-aged men who are professionals. This can be seen through the contents in the magazine. The magazine has lots of ads that are of watches, cologne, and nice cars. With that being said we do not believe that this magazine is geared toward younger teenage men because of what ads, pictures and articles in the......

...Rich Manufacturing Gordon Perkes Why do many firms use cost-plus pricing for supply contracts? Cost-plus pricing is a pricing method used by companies to maximize their rate of returns. It is also known as markup pricing. Many firms use cost-plus pricing because it is one of the more common methods of pricing. “Firms that use this technique calculate average total cost and then mark up the price to yield a target rate of return”. I would say the biggest reason for cost-plus pricing is that it guarantees a profit. Even if the price of the part was reduced, it is built in so that a profit would be made. Unit cost = variable cost + (fixed costs/unit sales) What potential problems do you envision with cost-plus pricing? Even though cost-plus pricing guarantees a profit, it can be very ineffective. It does not take into consideration what the consumer is doing, nor its competition. If a firm agrees to pay cost-plus pricing, they are guaranteeing a profit to the vendor no matter how the company is managed. By keeping this pricing model it does not give the vendor any incentive to maximize its production, because it is already guaranteed a profit. It is actually taking away from the customer. What is being done with the money between what the customer is paying and the return the vendor is making? It brings up the question, is this benefiting the customer in the best way possible?

...Taiwan and the Competition for Diplomatic Recognition TIMOTHY S. RICH Diplomatic recognition is generally seen as fundamental to the modern state system. The traditional views of recognition however focus almost exclusively on political or ideological rationales, ignoring other foundations on which other countries base establishing diplomatic recognition. Focusing on the Republic of China (Taiwan) suggests a more complicated view where economic self-interest on one side and national pride on the other may undermine traditional conceptions of recognition. Using the ROC-PRC diplomatic battle as a case study, this paper hopes to shed light on two questions: why, despite the PRC's rise as a global power, a country would continue to formally recognize the ROC and secondly what does the ROC receive in exchange for such high-cost endeavors to maintain recognition. In this case mutual ideological rationales have greatly diminished while I contend that economic factors have predominantly maintained this diplomatic battle. In addition, previous research often focuses on major world powers granting or withholding formal recognition to smaller states. In this situation, poor countries with typically little political influence are the major players, suggesting different rationales behind recognition. Methodologically, this paper blends qualitative and quantitative analysis to uncover factors affecting recogni- T IMOTHY S. RICH is a doctoral student in political science at the......

A Man Is a Man

...A Short Essay A Man is a Man, A Woman is a Woman Tabitha Ponder Ashford University ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Professor Carla McGill February 4, 2013 A Man is a Man, A Woman is A Woman Some may say that a man is a man and a woman is a woman; and they should stay in there prospective places at all costs. Gender roles can sometimes be reversed. Specifically, I am going to address the gender reversal in marriage. Several factors may contribute to role (gender) reversal. It depends on the personality of the individuals involved, and how they learn to interact with one another (or not). Also, a change in circumstances or a chain of events can force a gender role reversal. For example, the husband may get hurt on the job and now the wife who is accustomed to staying home with the kids now is forced to go out and provide for the family. Let’s define gender roles within a traditional marriage between a man and a woman. Traditionally, the husband is the one who provides for the family financially. He is the bread winner. Because he is the bread winner, normally he is the final voice of authority in the home concerning any issues that may arise. The wife is the one who is the caregiver. The wife is the nurturer; she takes care of the children and the husband too! She is also takes care of the affairs of the home. The depth of most people’s belief in gender-role stereotypes is often overlooked. A husband may have the......

...rich The guidelines for system development The Standards consist of development phases, steps and outputs. There are eight phases, each one with multiple steps, which in turn may have one, or several, outputs. While these are presented in a certain order, outputs are not necessarily completed in this sequence. Once projects are approved, Project Managers select the appropriate documentation for each project, using the Checklist for System Development Life Cycle Standards, reproduced at the end of the Introduction. The Checklist enumerates all development phases, steps and outputs. Project Managers select, record and obtain management approval for which documents they anticipate using, and the brief rationale for not selecting others. Each output description contains the purpose of the output, its recommended content, and the recommended techniques and tools. Many of the outputs have samples that show how they have been applied. Other documentation is acceptable as long as it provides the essential elements contained in the output and its name and number are referenced. The Standards are most useful when employed as an organizing device for outputs that may include records, agreements, discussions, minutes of meetings, use of samples, etc. Any information in funding applications or from other sources could be used in the SDLCS Outputs as long as the information provides the essential elements contained in the output and the output’s name and number are referenced.

Are the Rich Happy

...Are the rich happy? Sasha Winther 2.p – Solrød Gymnasium Stephen Leacock’s literary achievement is largely in the mastery of the comic sketch. He has written a collection of short pieces that are unrelated to each other. He writes styling is miniaturist, and his focus is on the small details. The subject he usually writes about, are extensive, but usually appeals to the average man. The humor is a form of frustration or mild victimization, in this case the rich man’s sadness over the resignation of his butler. ’’Are the rich happy?’’ is written by Stephen Leacock, 1916. It is from the collection Further Foolishness: Sketches and Satires on the Follies of the Day. The text has an episodic structure, and there is a lot of narration. He tells a story of his encounters with people he thought to be rich. He sarcastically tells the story using vague descriptive language. The descriptions are unclear, one cannot see or feel, but it is easy to understand who he is talking about, their expressions, and their lifestyles. He makes a clear comparison between the rich and the poor. In his text he speaks of a man who makes fifty thousand dollars a year and has told him that it is impossible to keep up with the rich and that it is better to accept the fact of being poor. He describes how a man can only give him a plain meal that he calls a home dinner, but that it takes three men and two women to serve it. Stephen Leacock shows his opinion by using sarcasm. It is the irony and......

...How to become rich As I remember there is a pop song “I want to be a billionaire so freaking bad, buy all of the things I never had”, this melody still stick in my head all the time. How to become rich? I ask myself this question every day. Become rich has different meanings for different people. The term rich can also be applied to the accumulation of other things besides wealth. Things like good health, close relationships with family and friends, a rewarding career, and enjoyable hobbies can make people feel rich as well. Of Course everybody dreams to being rich, who wouldn’t, but being rich in wealth without being rich in life would in my opinion to be pointless. Being in good health allows a person to enjoy life with or without having money. Not having to go to the doctor constantly for things such as heart trouble, diabetes, depression, or arthritis is a blessing. When we can be mobile without pain to do even the simplest of things, this allows us to live an enjoyable life. I could be a person without the convenience of monetary value and have a wonderful family and friends to share my life with that would make me rich in life. No one can put a price on having a family that is there for you through good times and bad. When the time comes that you need a shoulder to lean on or someone to just listen to you vent, nothing beats family and friends. True friends will always pick you up when you fall or stumble, share secrets with you, and they will be the first to give......

The Definition of Rich

...Definition of Rich I used to envy someone who was wearing luxury clothes with an expensive purse on the street. I used to think that being rich means having a lot of money to buy everything I want, so my definition of rich was only about money. Even though I asked some of my friends, “what you think about the definition of rich,” their thoughts were just like mine. Being rich means not worrying about finances and doing what they really want to do. However, my mother gave me a different definition of rich. She let me know what rich really is. She told me, “Being rich is not too much about the income. It’s about what we have owned in our lives.” In other words, it has more to do with quality of life. My mind woke suddenly with a start when I heard what my mother said. I used to comprehend only the superficial meaning of rich. I realized that I was wrong. The underlying meaning is our lives. Therefore, the definition of rich that my mother told me has helped me realize I shouldn’t only pursue money if my goal is to be rich. I should cherish and care about what I have owned today. It’s like my family, my friends, and my campus life. These are all my wealth. Also, I have been learning something new to enrich my mind. If we can stay with someone that is important to us and enrich the inside of our mind, we can say we are rich no matter how much money we have owned. I don’t think many people can accept my mother’s definition of rich. My mother told me that she explained rich in this......

...Moose and the Sparrow Hugh Garner From the very beginning Moose Maddon picked on him. The kid was bait for all of Maddon's cruel practical jokes around the camp. He was sent back to the tool-house for left-handed saws, and down to the office to ask the pay cheater if the day's mail was in, though the rest of us knew it was only flown out every week. The kid's name was Cecil, and Maddon used to mouth it with a simpering mockery, as if it pointed to the kid being something less than a man. I must admit though that the name fitted him, for Cecil was the least likely lumberjack I've seen in over twenty-five years in lumber camps. Though we knew he was intelligent enough, and a man too, if smaller than most of us, we all kidded him, in the good natured way a bunkhouse gang will. Maddon however always lisped the kid's name as if it belonged to a woman. Moose Maddon was as different from Cecil as it is possible for two human beings to be and still stay within the species. He was a big moose of a man, even for a lumber stiff, with a round flat unshaven face that looked down angrily and dourly at the world. Cecil on the other hand was hardly taller than an axe-handle, and almost as thin. He was about nineteen years old, with the looks of an inquisitive sparrow behind his thick horn-rimmed glasses. He had been sent out to the camp for the summer months by an distant relative who had a connection with the head office down in Vancouver. That summer we were cutting big stuff in......
