...each other and feel comfortable with each other communication shouldn't be a problem. This links to the element of effective Communication in marriage. I’ll first of all let him/her know that communicating effectively takes practice and a great deal of effort. Without communication, it is nearly impossible to resolve conflicts or grow your partnership. Whether you are in a troubled marriage, simply seeing the value of a "tune-up", or seeking marriage help, here are some useful tips for communicating effectively within a marriage. I point out to him/her to realize that that no one "wins" an argument. If you don't leave a discussion with a possible solution to the problem, then neither party has been successful. Compromise is an essential tool to solving problems through communication. Before bringing up a problem, make sure you have thought of ways that you can help solve it by mutual compromise. Try to be positive when bringing up sensitive marital problems. Instead of jumping right into a discussion, open by acknowledging that every partnership could be improved and you'd like to take some time and discuss the things that are working in your relationship and the areas that could use improvement. It helps to start by talking about positive things and then moving into the deeper discussion on problem areas. Be a "reflective" listener and make sure you understand what your partner has said. "What I hear you saying is..." is a great way to make sure the proper message has......

Marketing Strategy as Promotional Tools

...Promotional strategy is designed to sell a product. It is a one-way form of communication, from company to consumer, geared toward giving consumers the information necessary to make a purchasing decision. Promotions tell consumers about the product and how to get it. The purpose of promotion is to sell products and to build brand name. The promotional strategy is a two-way interaction between company and consumer designed primarily to increase sales, often by attracting new customers. Brand building is a side effect of promotional strategies, but it is not the purpose. Promotional strategies give away something, whether it is free product, money or other awards, as a way to bring in consumers who may not be attracted to the product under normal circumstances. Promotional strategies can also increase sales through repetition. Promotional campaigns can cost a great deal of money and may not show immediate results. The promotional strategy is ideal for small to medium or even large companies with brand recognition. Examples of promotional strategy include scripted commercials, magazine advertisements, radio announcements, giving away coupons, printed information or free products/free sampling that inform the consumer about a product. It is also a mixed of advertising, promotion, personal selling and publicity for communication with its target market. Promotion constitutes the key tool that's used to deliver information about a product or service to consumers and the public at......

...reassessment of the lease term. They thought, however, that the cost of applying the reassessment proposals would exceed any benefit. They stated that reassessment would be costly for the following reasons: (a) The frequency of reassessment – Some constituents were concerned that an entity would have to continuously assess and monitor relevant factors that give rise to a significant economic incentive even though there might not be a change in the lease term. They noted that a lessee often makes a decision regarding the exercise of an option close to the end of the lease term or at the time business strategy changes. Therefore, the lessee might incur Leases │Lease Term Page 7 of 32 IASB Agenda ref FASB Agenda ref significant costs to continuously reassess the lease term although a change in the lease term might occur only at the end of the initial noncancellable period or when business strategy changes. When an entity determines that remeasurement of the lease assets and lease liabilities is not necessary, these constituents also mentioned that there would be costs involved in demonstrating to their auditors that assumptions regarding a significant economic incentive have not changed.

Difference Between Frs 14 and Frs 108

...Overview The newly implemented FRS 108 requires identification of operating segments on the basis of internal reports that are regularly reviewed by the entity’s chief operating decision maker in order to allocate resources to the segment and assess its performance. On the other hand, the old FRS 14 requires companies to identify two sets of segments which are primary and secondary segments. One is based on related products and services (Business Segmentation), and the other on geographical areas (Geographical Segmentation). In addition, according to FRS 108, companies have to disclose further information such as major customers whom contributed more than 10% of the Group’s revenue. Company Overview As such, the two companies that we have chosen to analyze the addition costs and benefits by the implementation of FRS 108 are Aztech Group Limited (Aztech) as well as Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel). Aztech is incorporated in 1986 and is subsequently listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Stock Exchange. Aztech being a dynamic international group with key activities in Electronics Design & Manufacturing, Materials Supply and Marine Logistics is operating in six countries over three continents.

Break the Rules Fr. Sir Neal

...Managers are the key to a strong workplace. Managers who create an environment where workers can answer the questions positively are the managers who will attract and retain the best. What a Strong Workplace Looks Like Lankford-Sysco is a strong workplace. The Ocean City, MD, workplace doesn’t look very special. The warehouses are cold and foreboding. Workers clad in arctic wear move crates in and out of deep freezers. But as you continue your tour, you quickly notice the workers are focused and cheerful. In the lobby there is a huge mural depicting company history as well as an employee portrait gallery. The company is part of a $15 billion food distribution giant, yet resembles the small, family owned operation it was before merging with industry giant Sysco. The company has a turnover rate in the single digits, absenteeism is at an all-time low, and theft is virtually nonexistent. Company executives think they know the reason. Every employee is paid for performance regardless of what position he or she holds. Managers constantly talk about the importance of customers and say they treat workers with respect and really listen to their concerns. In turn, workers measure their success by personal bests like breakage records and miles traveled without accidents. Virtually everyone would answer yes to the 12 measuring stick questions. Today, more than ever, employers realize they must find and keep top talent for every role. And the approach many of them are taking is to......

The industry is split in two sectors: full-service restaurants (FSR) and limited-service restaurants (LSR). FSRs typically have a wait-staff; LSRs do not have wait-staff.

The Impact on Globalisation on Media Industries

...Globalisation has had various and important impacts on the media industries and how they have evolved and developed. It has allowed people from all over the world to be able to share their cultural customs and engage and learn from these exchanges. This has had a particular effect on the music industry, becoming a powerfully influential tool in the global music market and cultural music practices. The changes that globalisation has caused can be either viewed as hindering expressive cultural development or providing new opportunities for cultural hybridisation. Although there are distinct fallbacks, the benefits of this new global music industry have been substantial. Globalisation facilitates the development of an enriching and creative music culture and provides credits to otherwise known cultural music, shown through the examples of Korean’s K-Pop and Nigeria’s Afrobeats. Globalisation ‘refers to the rapidly developing process of complex interconnections between societies, cultures, institutions and individuals world-wide.’ (Tomlinson, 1999, pp.165) This process is commonly depicted as a beneficial force, unifying a range of different global societies and incorporating them into a “global village”, therefore enriching all cultures involved. Globalisation in the media industry is formed through the convergence of media organisations and the reconstruction of the media industries along global lines, creating a number of transnational conglomerates with immense power.......
