Abeng M3 Paper

...Abeng M3 Response Paper PSTL 1368 Manqi Zhang I had an experience with conforming to social expectation when I was still in high school in China. Several years ago, there is a stereotype in the native society that the majority of students who study aboard are the worst ones, which are not qualified to go to a Chinese college or university. I was one of the top students in my class and expected to become the students who will have the best performance in the college admission exam. At that time, I decided to study aboard instead of accept the offer and step into the Chinese university. Most of my teachers and friends, even some of my family members, was shocked by my decision and questioned my future. Filled with embarrassment, disappointment and worries, I was under great pressure when I left my home. In this case, I felt confused about this social limitation just like Clare did. Why the people around me immediately believe what they have been told but never try to find evidence to prove it? I was struggled in the first semester due to the misunderstandings and difficulties I confronted. However, as I accumulate more and more experience, I gradually realized the benefits I gained in U of M. My own story exemplified the truth that sometimes we should challenge the social limitation and keep our faith if the result is good. Both Clare and I agree that it is significant to question rules and make a difference. One of the symbolic objectives in this article is the Clare’s......

...CJA105 AUO Introduction to Criminal Justice M3 A2 Marital rape is one of the most under reported crimes in the western hemisphere. The common thought is how can the husband take something that belongs to him? Rape by someone you have been sexually intimate with is often not seen as “real rape”. Such attitudes are based on the premise that having given initial consent, the woman is not free to withdraw it. In a study done by Diana Russell, rape in marriage is the most common yet most neglected area of sexual violence. In a 1985 study, it is estimated that 100 to 14 percent of all married women have been or will be raped by their spouses. A study done in the 1980’s, on juvenile girls caused shock when the figures came in . Teen dating often involves rape and sexual assault, and it continues to be on the rise. 1 in 10 high school students have experienced dating violence and nearly 22% of college students. As I looked for a specific case, I began to notice something… I can’t find any. I cannot find anything in the US. You want to know why? Do I need to reiterate it? When a victim goes to file a report, to press charges and the Detectives say, “The Prosecutor will not go any further than this because you did, (such and such) before. What recourse does she have? If she has the stamina, she can leave him. If not, she lives in the hell her marriage has become. Although marital rape happens more than it should in American society, I have found that it is rampant with......

...For M3 and D2 I will write about new Look has survived in two different economic environments, I will also be evaluating how future changes may affect them as well. Political Factors Because inflation in the UK has gone down the Profit that New Look will have made will have gone up – the interest rate has also been lowered which will help boost the company. Because of all this the demand of high street clothing has also gone up meaning that more people are buying New Looks clothes. As New look have had a rise in profit they have decided to open up nearly 600 stores all over the UK. Russia has also had a raise in their economy which means that they have also had a higher demand for high street clothing. Because of this New Look have decided to grow their company and maximise profits over there. In 2013 they opened up around 20 stores, this is good as they have only just started to open up stores in Russia. At the moment taxes have been lowered to try and help the economy because of the recession – when the recession is over taxes will go back up. This means that New Look will be able to trade and hopefully they will be able to make more money, however they might find that the new stores that they have opened will start to cost them a lot of money. When taxes go back up it should not be much of a problem because they will already be doing well. UK government have been thinking about leaving the EU, if they were to do that than they would not to follow EU rules. This might...

...D1 Introduction: In this report I’m going to talk about the cost vs. benefits, talking about the promotional mix and stating improvements needed to be done. I’m going to be evaluating the effectiveness of my campaign. Costs versus Benefits: The cost for advertising is huge, you have to dish out a few thousands too book you allocated time slot, on top of that you have to pay for how long you want the advert to stay. The price varies for different types of adverts, for example if you want a billboard advert you have to pay for the length of the ad, however for T.V (Which is the highest paying promotion) you have to pay considerably more compared to the billboard. The benefit is huge if you advertising is to the correct target audience, it would have been viewed by millions at home meaning Apple has earn a considerable amount of potential customers. The cost for Sales promotion isn’t too risky if the product you’ve chosen is backed up by good branding and has a very high demand. It shouldn’t cost too much if the product your promoting isn’t losing you profit. The benefit is you’ll attract more customers with your catchy deal as well as earn a loyal customer. The cost for (PR) Public Relations is none; PR is free method of promotion which requires no initial cost. It’s used to get together with customers as well as increase your brand identity. The benefit is your PR stunt will be remembered by customers, and shows your business cares. The cost for direct selling......

...death. Patients have been treated with more respect and dignity and these patients have now the opportunity not to be discriminated as the act now instructs how and what measures would be taken to protect a service user. However despite this piece of legislation the major issue of perception and preconception against mentally ill patients still exists. This act however does not cover any discrimination within the community but still covers it when admitted into hospital. This also connects to the equality act 2010 as it makes it illegal to discriminate directly or indirectly against someone with a mental health condition within public services and functions, access to any premises, work, education, associations, and finally transport. D1 For this task, I am going to evaluate the success of the recent initiative in promoting anti-discriminatory practice. I am going to evaluate the mental health act 1983 and how the act’s initiatives promotes anti-discriminatory practice and I am also going to compare the amended version in 2007 and how this has promoted anti-discriminatory practice and how it has improved people’s lives. The mental health act was created in 1983 to make society as fair as possible but it also has had some negative areas. The act says about the ‘removal’ of people with mental disorders. This could be seen as discrimination e.g. marginalisation because you would be making someone feel isolated from society and feel as if they could not be part of that......

...Unit 16 - P5/M3/D2 In this assignment I will report on employees working at Tesco, and analyse how Tesco look at their employees and review their performance and then go on to see how they manage them. This is so carried out so they can get the best performance out of the employees because different employees within the business need different ways of managing them. This leads on to the performance improvement of the employee, the measures leading companies use to effectively manage employee development, rewards/recognition, recruitment/selection, and employee satisfaction and morale amongst employees. Case Study on how Tesco Measure and Manage a performance of an employee Tesco is an international expanding retail company and for them to remain one of the best they must manage their staff successfully. Also they need to measure how well they are performing as an employee, this not only benefits Tesco with their sales but also the employee can see what areas they are exceeding at and where they are not exceeding in. There are many methods in performance management that Tesco take upon the development of a succcessful performance management system with the employees. Tesco believes that an employee must have a clear work plan of objectives that are linked with the goals of the company. Measurements and targets are used to assure whether an objective has been achieved for example; has the employee reached their sales total of the day. The outcome of this method is a......

...P5 M3 Assess the impacts of changes in global and European business environment on a selected business. Oil price fluctuations Crude oil is the worlds most traded commodity by value, it is vital for many industries e.g. transportations, polymers and energy production that are closely linked with oil production As you can see in the image above the price of oil has crashed within a few months which has drastically decreased the price of fuels, the cause of this crash was due to new production methods which allowed other people to produce oil rather than the just the few that could before, this new method is called fracking. Assessment of impacts for KI KI are not heavily reliant on oil, they only use fuel for their cars which their main consumption. The price of fuel does influence them though, the biggest benefit is the effect on the customers, the lowering of the price of fuel means that people will, in effect, have a small pay rise, this will help KI as this will increase their customer’s disposable income and increase their consumer confidence. KI will always have oil related costs linked to their business as they use energy that is produced from oil and resources that wouldn’t be possible without oil e.g. polymers. The lowering of the oil price will help KI to maximise profits as they will be spending less on things that are oil based. KI may see people coming from further afield as the customers may thing that this drop in fuel price will allow them to...

...------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- D1: Evaluate the teams overall effectiveness in meeting its objectives, making recommendations for improvements Introduction: This section of the assignment will evaluate the overall effectiveness in meeting objectives and making recommendation for improvements. Functioning as an effective team does not occur instantly; rather it requires joint effort, inspired members and active leaders. A successful team would often consist of a range of members, who when put together, would apply their skills and attributes appropriately thus leading the team to succeed in achieving their goal. The following factors below demonstrate the overall effectiveness of our team. Planning: The process of planning during the project was carried out effectively- the clear instructions received at the start enabled the team to have a good idea of the task therefore allowing members to contribute appropriately. As the team leader I had taken an organised and structured approach through dictating what steps the team would take alongside the time limit in which this should be achieved. Through planning, the team was able to systematize what needs to be done and the time frame that is available. The decision of the team’s roles was a key component of the planning process; planning out the responsibility of each member was effective since it assisted in fulfilling all aspects of the task in an......

Aldi is a leading discount supermarket chain which uses a variety of marketing techniques to help them with their success. Aldi have managed to grow their business worldwide and manage to increase their market share and customer base. They have also been able to create a unique market strategy which has given them an edge over there competitors which are increasing massively. Branding has been helped Aldi become very successful. Today Aldi have a very strong brand name and are very well known. They have been able to create all this through many different methods. Firstly they had to come up with something which was going to make them unique. They came up with their own specialized brands. From their cheaper prices, simple layout and quick checkout service they have managed to achieve a stronger customer base as customers knows they can get a cheaper shop faster. They also didn’t want to be just known for food. So they came up with the idea of selling things depending on the season for example gloves and warm camping gear in winter and school essentials in September. This all help create a good brand if you know you can go to Aldi and do your food shop and get clothes or new kitchen equipment you are more likely to do it. This then leads to market development which for Aldi has been very successful. Since being founded in 1946 Aldi have managed to expand the business worldwide...

Health and Social Care M3

...Work Experience M3 Strengths At my work placement my strengths were the ability to use my own initiative and I had a great motivation. On the first day I was introduced to the gym and I was told what kind of activities I would do, it included cleaning, tidying up, litter picking and maintenance around the gym. Each day I turned up I knew what I was doing so every morning I grabbed pair of gloves and bin bag and went outside to do my daily litter pick to make sure that the car park was clean, it was my strength as there was no litter about during my stay there. Cleaning was a big part of my duty as there was a lot of dust on the machines and it was visible so I made sure every 2 days that there was no dust on the machines so they remain clean. I paid attention to every possible detail and used my own initiative during boring moments in the gym so I decided to look for any loose objects hanged on to the wall and screwed the screws in as well as cleaning all the trophies and pictures in the gym. Area for improvement I could have improved on organisation because I used to turn up without a note pad and didn’t note down what I could do through the day. I could have also brought a bigger lunch with me because this job was very demanding and required a lot of physical work especially during tidying up the gym including lifting heavy weights and putting them back on the racks. I feel like I should have brought more water and food with me instead of 3 sandwiches. I could have......

Unit 5 P6,M3

...P6 – Follow guidelines to interpt and collect data for heart rate, breathing rate and temperature before and after a standard period of exercise. M3 – Present data collected before and after a standard of period of exercise with reference to validity. Hypothesis: ‘Heart rate’, breathing rate and temperature increasing when exercising. Equipment needed: * Heart rate monitor * Thermometer * Stop watch Method: 1. Make sure the person has been resting for 5 minutes to ensure that they are relaxed. 2. Measure the pulse rate, temperature and how many times they breathe. These are the results for before exercise. 3. The individual will undertake strenuous exercise for 3 minutes immediately following the exercise take the pulse rate, temperature and how many times they breathe in one minute. These are the results for the after exercise. 4. Record all results | Resting | After exercise | Heart rate | 90 | 105 | Breathe rate | 47 | 54 | Temperature | 36 | 36 | I did prove my hypothesis because the results above shows that our heart rate, breathe rate and temperature changes when we exercise. After exercising the heart rate increased to 105 and the breathing rate increased to 54, but the temperature stayed the same. Some of the measurements were accurate because of resting before taking each measurement which will cause the results to be inaccurate, when you are exercising and you want to take the measurements you need an individual to help......
