City vs. Rural

Many people have debates on whether it’s better to live in a city or a rural environment. There are many differences, advantages and disadvantages of the two. It solely depends on the individuals work lifestyle. Cities have a much higher success rate for businesses. Here are some advantages of living in a city and some disadvantages of living in a rural environment. There is a big difference in means of transportation between city life and rural life. Cities have bus and train routes for people to utilize for commuting around the city, the routes also run through surrounding cities as well, making it easier to travel further when the individual has no vehicle or wants to save on gas. The cities transportation system operates throughout the day and night, making it more reliable to those traveling with extended or flexible schedules. In a rural area; homes, businesses, and shopping areas are further apart, so it’s likely to have a huge lack in means of transportation other than one’s own vehicle. Cities, having larger populations, an abundance of businesses and apartment buildings, makes it easier to find a neighbor or someone that resides relatively close for carpooling. With the distance between residences, businesses, shopping centers and the smaller population in rural areas, finding someone to car pool with may be difficult. With cities being so compacted, people have shorter distances to travel to other locations, some distances are so short that they may be able to walk. Traveling by foot may be very difficult in a rural area, the distances to other locations are too extensive. Living in a city is better for business in many ways. City populations are drastically larger than rural areas, more people results in more customers, resulting in business success and growth…...

Circuit City vs. Canon with Diversification

...business decisions of diversification. The first company, Circuit City, was unsuccessful at broadening their business, and eventually had to shut down the business. The other company, Canon, was successful at broadening their brand and scope of the business. This paper will compare and contrast their businesses, outcomes and reasons for the differences. Circuit City was established by Samuel S. Wurtzel in 1949 as the Wards Co. that sold Televisions and home appliances. Over the course of time, it expanded into a national retail powerhouse that rebranded itself Circuit City in 1984. When the store was still operating, it was the “nation’s second-largest consumer electronic retailer” (Mui, 2008, p.D1). When it closed in January 16, 2009, it had 567 stores to close and 34,000 employees out of work. (Haynes, 2009, p.D1). In 2007, the company “posted nearly $320 million in losses, its second consecutive annual shortfall. (Mui, 2008, p.D.1) In 2008, the companies “most recent quarterly showed that it had assets of $3.4 billion with $2.3 billion in liabilities.” (Mui, 2008, p.D1). Circuit City did not have much of an international presence, but it did have stores in Canada which did not account for much of its business. In the economic downturn, “Circuit City neglected to improve its web presence, just as other on-line retailers like Amazon.com were hitting their stride” (Hamilton, 2008). The Circuit City brand was purchased by Systemax, which uses the brand to sell......

City vs Third World

...The difference between a city in the U.S. and a village in a third world country are night and day. Many of the advancements that we carry here in the U.S. lack in third world villages. For example, advancements of technology, luxuries, environment, and even day to day social life. One might be lead to believe that the city life is better than village life. However there are so many advantages and disadvantages in city life and village life. City life is more comfortable and offer more opportunities for people to progress. There are a lot of facilities for people in the city and they have more opportunities to establish monetary funds for themselves. Children living in the city can get a higher education, because there are better overall schools in a city as oppose to a village. When a person becomes sick there are both public and private hospitals to recieve treatment from. People in the city have better transport facilities compared to a village. In the city there is electricity, highway, communication, telecommunication, plumbing and sewage. All of these things make a comfortable and enjoyable life for people living in the city.

Faragher vs. City of Boca

...in 1992, after resigning her position as a lifeguard brought action against the City of Boca Raton. She stated that both her supervisors, Bill Terry and David Silverman, had created a "sexually hostile environment" at work repeatedly subjecting Faragher and other female lifeguards to "uninvited and offensive touching," by making lewd remarks, and by speaking of women in offensive terms. Faragher was not the only woman being treated this way. Nancy Ewanchew had brought it to the City's Personal Director's attention hoping to put an end to the way they were being treated, however the problem continued. That is when Faragher then decided to take her case to court. She claimed that this behavior constituted discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Right Act of 1964. The District Court concluded that her supervisors' conduct was sufficiently serious to alter the conditions of her employment and constitute an abusive working environment. Faragher stated that in many ways the agency relationship had facilitated Terry and Silverman in creating a sexually hostile work environment such as abusing their power to keep the workers in line while making offensive remarks. The Court held that the city could be held liable. It made that determination because of three factors. First, it considered that the harrassment was prevalent and that the city should have been aware of it. Second, the city was liable under traditional agency principles as the defendants were......

Circuit City vs Best Buy

...Circuit City opened their doors with the mark of a new beginning of the electronic superstore. Once they became the leading specialty retailer for brand name electronics, the company growth and profits were increased more with launch of new innovative electronic products. At this point, Circuit City had 113 stores operating, and was steadily expanding to larger number of superstores. In 2000, Circuit City’s CEO Akan McCollough made the decision to eliminate the appliance line because he believes appliances didn’t have the same demand/growth potential as electronics. This resulted to six distribution centers closing, and eliminated over 1000 jobs. McCollough needed to expand else where once the appliance were shifted out. Circuit City put the focus in to expanding their imaging and entertainment products. In with the elimination of appliances, came with the restructure which resulted in Circuit City failure to secure prime real estate they opted for low cost leases areas that inconvenienced consumers. Best Buy, one of their major competitors aggressively pursued quality locations with promising lease negotiations which in turned allowed Best Buy to have better real-estate that consumers appreciated.

City vs Country Living

...City vs. Country Living Tired of waking up to gunshots or sirens at 3 A.M? Does the thought of crickets being the loudest noise around sound appealing? Big city living and country living both offer a place to lay down roots and make a house a home. It has always been a controversial decision when determining whether country living or city living is best, it is all based on what people’s perception of living is. But, both would require a particular type of person due to the dramatic differences each has. The difference between the city and country are; surroundings, entertainment, transportation, employment, and education. The city offers a variety of buildings of all different shapes, and sizes. The bright lights at night can be real pleasing to the eyes such as the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington or the Empire State Building in New York City, New York. People travel from all over the world to see these kinds of structures. Which leads us to the wonderful 5 mile an hour bumper-to-bumper traffic, and beautiful brownish/yellow tinted skies. There are houses as far as the eyes can see; they are so close that best friends can basically jump from rooftop to rooftop. Where as in the country, there might not be another house or car for miles. Trees or large open fields usually surround the houses; this may be the main reason for the fresh, crisp clean air. People can lie out at night and count the stars, since there are no distractions from buildings or bright lights.......

Analysis of Smith vs. the City of Jackson

...case of Smith vs. The City of Jackson is based on age discrimination and the interpretation that companies use to circumvent the process. The City of Jackson, Mississippi contends that Mr. Smith could no longer meet the physical requirements for the job that he held. Mr. Smith argues that the standards that were used to dismiss him from his job are not relevant to his duties. Mr. Smith is supported in this argument by the Trial lawyers for Public Justice (TLPJ) which contend that the city of Jackson, Mississippi used facially neutral practices to dismiss Mr. Smith. Facially neutral practices are described as stringent requirements; i.e. physical requirements, test scores, or special talents placed upon a job or task that are non age related. One might argue that many jobs require certain physical and mental attributes to perform the task, which in many cases may be true. But the legal argument here is that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) has addressed this discrimination by declaring the Reasonable Factors Other than Age (RFOA). The (RFOA) recognizes that companies and institutions use discriminatory test and physical requirements to circumvent age discrimination. In addressing (RFOA) it becomes incumbent upon the employer to prove that any test or physical conditions placed on a task are pertinent to that task. This action will not only protect the employer but the employee as well from future discrimination cases. The case of Smith vs. The City of......

Rural Marketing

...Rural Marketing Quite clearly, large Indian companies have begun looking at rural markets seriously. Some of them are even developing exclusive marketing strategies to tap this huge mass of consumers. Of India's one billion plus population, nearly 70 per cent live in non-urban or rural areas. According to a National Council for Applied Economic Research (NCAER) study, there are as many "middle income and above" households in rural areas as there are in urban areas. There are almost twice as many "lower middle income" households in rural areas as in urban. According to NCAER's projections, the number of middle and high-income households in rural India is expected to grow from 80 million to 111 million by 2007. In Urban India, the same is expected to grow from 46 million to 59 million. Hence the absolute size of middle and high income households in Rural India is expected to be nearly double that of Urban India. Percentage Distribution of household population and income | |Households |Population |Income | |Rural |73.6 |74.6 |55.6 | |Urban |27.4 |25.4 |44.4 | |All India |100 |100 |100 | Thus we see that Rural India contributes almost 56% to the National Income as against 44% contributed by Urban India. Although it is contributed by 76% of the total...

City

...the area. This rural countryside with its rich soil and abundant water supply was ideal for farming. Artesians grew grapes, sugar beets, other vegetables and fruits. They raise poultry and were dairy farmers. Nurseries grew ferns and flowers.In the 1920’s and 1930’s, Dutch and Portuguese experts in the dairy industry developed Artesia into one of the most important dairy districts in Southern California. After World War II, the land became valuable to developers who wanted to build homes. To meet this pressure, the City of Dairy Valley was incorporated in 1956. Dairy Valley later became the city of Cerritos. The demand for land became so great that the dairymen sold their dairies and moved their operations to the east in Chino and to Central California.”("The official artesia," ) “The Artesia Water Tower, the familiar inactive water storage tank located on Clarkdale Avenue just south of 183rd Street, has been a familiar site for citizens of Artesia for many years. However, little is known of its active past or when it was actually constructed. In an attempt to declare the Tower a Historical Landmark the City is asking citizens who may have information to share about its past, or have dated pictures of the tower to come forward. The Tower, which can store up to 50,000 gallons of water, was once owned by the Southern California Water Company, and was sold to the City of Artesia as an inactive water storage facility in 1988. The tower was purchased by the City to be used......

Country Living vs City Living

...COUNTRY HOOK: Do people typically prefer to live in the country rather than in the city? William Penn once said, “The country life is to be preferred; for there we see the works of God; but in cities, we see little else but the works of men.” INTRODUCE THE ISSUE: Even after considering all of the negative aspects of living in the city, such as the crime rate, pollution, traffic, and the noise level, city life still offers a lot of daily conveniences. Some conveniences that city life offers are public transportation, a variety of stores, and restaurants, and lots of places to live and work. However; people who have lived in both the city and the country, know that country living is better than city living. STATE POSITION CLEARLY: The environment of a rural life style, the peace, and quiet, the beauty of nature, and the calming effect that it has on one’s mind and body, is the reason that people prefer living in the country rather than in the city. TRANSITION TO ESSAY BODY (THESIS): People prefer to live in the country because there are many advantages, and simple pleasures that can only be attained by living there. PRO REASON 1: There are no traffic jams in the country, and people need not travel to experience the wonders that nature has to offer. SUPPORTING EVIDENCE: There is no traffic in the country, so typically, the sound of passing cars, and trucks is not heard as frequent as in the city. The load noise of the sirens from fire trucks, police cars, and......

Cities

...complex ones in cities. However, cities are where the action is. Therefore, new subfield of anthropology emerged, urban anthropology, emphasizing issues of the cities in undeveloped and industrialized countries. This might be due to the reason that anthropology aspires to study universals and wider perspective of human condition. And also cities represent a ‘gateway; to fieldwork which mainly takes place in towns, peasants villages, rural areas etc. Gateway, not just in a physical sense of airports, train & bus stations, but also in sense of communication, expertise (universities, academics etc.), government etc. Although, to interpret issues of cities, the slums, & shanty towns can be done only in terms of forces which lead people to migrate from the countryside. 1. There are a lot of questions studied by both anthropologists and sociologists related to comparative studies of cities and understanding human ways. These phenomena are those of comparison of urban experience in underdeveloped countries. For instance, issues like kinship ties and stresses of urban life and its effects of crowding on aggression and frustration. Thus Anderson argues, on this topic, that due to cultural ways of dealing with crowding the pathological effects on urban Chinese living in Hong Kong are minimized. More importantly, Gideon Sjoberg, created so-called idealized model of the preindustrial cities, in other words, cities of antiquity. One can say that ancient’s city was of......
