Texting and Driving

...Texting and Driving By: Sarah Bento One of the most common, tempting, deadly distractions for anyone behind the wheel is cellphones. One in four American drivers admit to texting while driving, and 40% of teenagers between the ages of 12 to 17 years old say they have been in a car where a teenager used a cellphone in a dangerous way. Although teens and others may not realize it, any cell phone use, whether hand held or hands free, while driving is dangerous. In fact researchers have found that it quadruples the crash risk. Just the act of dialing a cell phone can increase crash risks by three times. In a naturalistic of truck drivers, Virginia tech researchers reported a 23 fold increase in risk of a crash or near crash when any drivers were text messaging. As of may 2012, 10 states, The district of Columbia (DC), Guam, and The Virgin islands have instituted a hand held cell-phone ban for all drivers, with all but two of them making it a primary offense. Text messaging is banned for all drivers in 38 states, The district of Columbia, and Guam with all but three of them making it a primary offense. An additional five states prohibit text messaging by novice drivers. Since the number of states enacting very distracted driving laws is very fluid, be sure to check web resources that follow movement in state safety traffic laws, such as the governors highway traffic safety association, before providing these numbers. Recent research from the insurance institute for...

Midmacroeconomic Environment Midterm Essay

...credits which the firm no longer needs to comply and therefore have a direct economic profit when reduction in emissions is taking place. I would push this initiative (though clearly perfectible) into a firm under my control. This would allow a direct and immediate incentive and benefit from actually reducing the emissions the firm already must comply with. However, this is a short-term benefit obviously because the lower the firm’s emissions, the lower quantity of carbon bonds or credits it receives and therefore the lower quantity it can sell in this particular market when achieving exceeding reductions.

Balanced Scorecard

...Executive Summary According to Bento, “the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) has been proposed as an integrated framework for the implementation of financial and nonfinancial performance measures that helps organizations align their initiatives with the organization’s strategy” (2013). The Balanced Scorecard offers management a system to use in plotting strategic objectives through four perspectives. The financial perspective is determined by the outcome of management’s implementation of the internal processes perspective, customer perspective, and learning and growth perspective. Aon Corporation is the “leading provider of risk management, insurance and reinsurance brokerage” (Aon, 2014). Using the Balanced Scorecard my operating segment, Benefit Marketing Solutions, can examine an implement each of the four perspectives by obtaining information on how we can achieve Aon standards in the operation of our business segment. Implementing the Balanced Scorecard, I will assess how our financials can improve by achieving the objectives of maximizing company profits, increasing our gross profit margin per client, and decreasing our accounts payable days. The first factor I will investigate is our customer perspective and how increasing customer loyalty, customer exposure, and customer education will improve upon our financials. The second factor I will investigate is the internal perspective and how effective company alliances, effective customer service, and effective payment of...

Marketing of Service

...5.1 Target Market and Segmentation J-Bento is a family owned restaurant which means that it does not offer any franchise distribution. Hence, the primary target market of J-Bento restaurant is young adults who are full time students, full time workers, part-time or casual workers; therefore, they seek a good restaurant but reasonable price. Hence, the prices of J-Bento can be flexible but moderate and suitable price for their target market.Furthermore, Geographic is related to geography such as characteristic of a specific region, climate and industries (Elliot, Rundle-Thiele and Waller 2010). J-Bento is located in Victoria Park which is urban area; hence, most of their consumers are people who live in and around that area such as Victoria Park, Canning, East Perth, Perth and Wilson. So people who live in sub-urban area for example East Fremantle and Fremantle will not know about J-Bento. Therefore, J-Bento Restaurant can promote their business by offering flyers and through social media such as Face book, Blog, and Twitter so that people in sub-urban area can notice and try it out. 5.2. Customer Expectations and Perceived Benefits Consumers often measure the risks and attributes and create expectations about the performance of the chosen product and services (Lovelock, Patterson &Wirtz 2011). Every consumer has different demand for their life, so they also have different expectation. In this case, the target market come to J-Bento restaurant because it is located in......

There many examples of soldiers becoming great leaders and doing great things. For not only their country but their fellow soldiers as well, one example of this is a personal friend of mine Sgt. Steven Rose and his working dog Bento. Two years ago in the streets of Afghanistan Sgt. Rose and his bomb dog Bento were on a mission to help detect bombs while looking for the number two most wanted man in Afghanistan. The small detachment of soldiers was weaving through the streets of Afghanistan when Bento suddenly stopped. Sgt. Rose placed his hand up and the soldiers following all froze behind him. Bento then walked in front of Sgt. Rose and then stopped in between him and the bomb seconds before it was detonated. The blast was big enough to not only knock the detachment of soldiers back, but they each took shrapnel. Because Bento placed himself in front of Steven he took most of the blast that would have killed his handler. They tried to scramble together to save the dogs life, but the bleeding would not stop, Bento died in saving his handler and the other soldiers, he may not been human but he was still a member of the military, a SSG in the US Army....

...Yuan 1 Poe Yuan Professor Bento Course Title November 30, 2015 “Waiting for superman” Journal “Waiting for superman” is such an interesting documentary that letting me know about the American public school system and its influences of the students and their parents. The film interviewed five students had been negatively affected by the public school system. Because of low quality teachers, these children and their parents were unwilling being taught by their current school, they rather entering charter school lotteries and private school. The film “Waiting for superman” refer to that no savior actually exist, no one can help them. This film let me know about the negative ways of American public school system. Before I thought all the public schools are basically the same. I attended a traditional public state school, the performances and the quality of teachers of my high school are not that bad compared to those schools in the film, so I never confronted a bad teacher and never thought about this issue. After watching this film, I have learned that bad teacher is huge issue of the public school system, those bad teacher in school do not really care about student’s education, they just thinking about their pension. Students can not cross the district to attend other local school, so these children have to end up go to charter school. I can feel the desperateness and helpless from these children and their parents, especially the final lotteries scene, no one will......

Computing Trends - Research Skills

...presents a problem when data governance is an issue, and access location is important. Still, this concern has been addressed in some cases where cloud computing services providers specify where the data servers are located. Secondly, users data can be easily be commingled since they will share the same data servers in a multi-tenancy approach that uses the same application. Although there are some secure multi-tenancy approaches available on the market that guarantee their clients data privacy, security, customizability and scalability, the data encryption protocols do not guarantee this. As such, there is no security guarantee for clients’ data thereby allowing for occasions when one user accesses data that is not meant for him or her (Bento & Aggarwal, 2012, pp. 197-200; Cheung & Weber, 2015, p. 21; Rao, 2015, pp. 71-73). Thirdly, different institutions will adopt different data handling procedural approaches that will also translate to the cloud security policies. This is particularly true when the technology and procedures are revolutionary and proprietary. The result is that the users’ data handling policies may not match those of the cloud computing services providers, with the consequence that information compliance requirements may not be met in such a way that satisfies both the users and providers policies. Fourthly, while the users own the data contained in the cloud computing servers, there are no guarantees that this will be so even when the hosting......

Dom Casmurro Reflective Statement

...the novel. Knowing how Bento wanted to describe Capitu to Aurora and Thetis helped me understand how he viewed her. He didn't end up describing her hair to Aurora's because, “I was yet unfamiliar with this goddess”. Aurora's hair of sunburst and sun rays were probably not a good enough way to describe Capitu's hair. Bento crossed out Thetis and nymph and instead wrote “a beloved creature, which is a word which embraces all the powers.” Thetis was one of the 50 Nereids and their leader. She had her son Achilles with King Peleus, who she didn’t really like. Bento described Capitu's undertow eyes like Thetis' because she was the goddess of the sea. The sea has an undertow current that drags people in just like Capitu's eyes dragged in Bento and made him love her even more. Homer's cow is about the sun god's Helios' immortal cows. Odysseus' crew kills the cows and Helios gets mad. He kills the crew except Odysseus because he escaped to Calypsos' island. Homer's cow was used to describe Jose Dias' eyes and how they “dragged themselves away from the wall and began to wander around the whole patio.” This happens when Jose Dias is trying to find a way to get Bento out of the seminary sooner, since he couldn’t get Bento out of it completely. Priam, king of Troy, watches his son, Hector, get killed by Achilles. Priam goes to Achilles' camp to get Hector's body. He kisses Achilles' hand and Achilles feels sympathy for the first time. This helped me understand what Bento was feeling at......

Hearing Impaired Patients

...Hearing Impaired Patients Paula Inman NUR 440 October 10th, 2011 Priscilla Aylesworth Hearing Impaired Patients Hearing loss is a common health issue that affects 10% of the work population as indicated by many international studies” (Bento & Penteado, 2010, pg 64). According to Healthy People 2020 three out of every 1,000 babies are born with hearing loss (, n.d.). As we age hearing loss is caused by colds, earaches, medications, head trauma, and the aging process. At Illinois Valley Hospice most of our patients are elderly, and we wanted to see how we can help the hearing impaired patient feel comfortable in their surroundings even if they have difficulty hearing. The Sample Group We took a three-month sample of our patient. In total we served 57 patients ranging from 44 to 99 years old. Thirty of the patients had no hearing impairment, 19 had mild impairment, five had moderate and three had severe. In hospice, patients get to the point where they no longer respond, but research shows that hearing is the last sense to leave as they are dying. The hospice staff noted the different ways each patient was could communicate. With the mild and moderate hearing impaired patients the staff just needed to talk loudly and look directly at the patient so they had the opportunity to read lips. It was more difficult communicating with the severe hearing impaired. Staff noted that they needed to make sure the patient had their hearing aids in; staff......

Bottled Water

...BOTTLED WATER ASSIGNMENT Bento, Alexandra Martinez, Rafael Aqua Panna is an Italian bottled water company that nowadays is sold in Europe and North America, and it is sold through Nestlé’s distribution chain. It is well known in most of European countries, for that reason we believe that this brand would be easily identified by Latin American customers. We decided to undertake an external analysis in order to identify the barriers that this company would face entering into the Venezuelan bottled water market. The local market is vastly dominated by 6 principal brands: Minalba, Nevada, Los Alpes, Zenda, Aqua Matter and Canaima. The most share of the market is hold by Minalba and Nevada which are brands of Pepsi and Coca Cola respectively. Nevertheless, due to political pressure, Pepsi Co. and Coca Cola are losing market share as the government is setting economical regulations to this companies to control the business. As the Venezuelan wealth is not well distributed, there is a massive part of the population which does not have enough money for spending in not essential products, for that reason luxury brands of water are not popular among the society members. The local market of bottled water is as shown below: Brands | 2008 | 2010 | Difference | Minalba | 31% | 28% | -3% | Nevada | 29% | 25% | -4% | Los Alpes | 14% | 15% | +1% | Zenda | 9% | 7% | -2% | Aqua Matter | 5% | 6% | +1% | Canaima | 3% | 7% | +3% | Others | 9% | 13% | +4% | Venezuela......

Ebusiness Proposal

...mouth and loyal customers. The website would become a main part of the marketing effort and create awareness for prospective customers. Finally, foot traffic will increase as the website develops. New customers will hear about Suzuki’s Teriyaki from search results. Offering coupons online and through e-mails can draw more customers new and old. Furthermore, Suzuki’s Teriyaki will be able to control the traffic by offering certain specials at certain times. For instance during the summer, a large auto show takes place at the Uptown plaza, Suzuki’s Teriyaki can offer specials during times like this draw even more customers in. Current Online Competitor Assessment The competitors for Suzuki’s Teriyaki are P.F. Chang’s, Toeshi Teriyaki, Bento Teriyaki, Sakura, and Amazon. All are restaurants except for Amazon. Amazon is listed as a competitor because they sell a lot of teriyaki sauce online which is one of the areas that Suzuki’s Teriyaki hopes to improve with a website. P.F. Chang’s is a national chain restaurant with annual revenue of more than a billion dollars. They have over 200 restaurants and employ more than 20,000 people. About two years ago a P.F. Chang’s restaurant opened in the Tri-Cities area. The location is right next to the largest shopping center in Central Washington and is very visible. P.F. Chang’s immediately became a very popular place to dine. Local Asian restaurants lost a little business initially but the strong local economy allowed the restaurants...
