Kony 2012

...2012. Jason's goal was to make Joseph Kony famous by encouraging supporters to plaster the United States cities with posters, in order to make the fight against the Lord's Resistance Army an issue of “national interest” to Washington. In the short film Kony 2012 it is said that in Uganda Joseph Kony has abducted an estimate of 66,000 children, some of which have became soldiers or sex slaves. Several Ugandans are out raged about Jason's film because he has mad accusations that numerous things are happening in Uganda right now, and that we need to stop him by 2012. When really Joseph isn't even in Uganda anymore and the war has already subsided. “There has not been a single soul from the Lord's Resistance Army here since 2006. Now we have peace, people are back in their homes, they are planting their fields, they are starting their businesses. That is what people should help us with” (Unknown). Having looked over many articles and videos it shows that Ugandans are upset about Jason's video he has made without any real evidence to back him up on his accusations. Jason didn't even get enough research in to know what Kony's name actually is, it's pronounced “Kohn”. How are we suppose to be convinced by his video if Jason can't even get the name right. “My response to KONY 2012” by Rosebell Kagumire. Rosebell is originally from Uganda she saw that there was a new issue about Joseph Kony by Jason's......

Marketing Plan 2 drink, cookie, or chips. Once that card is filled, the customer is entitled to a free submarine sandwich. “A differentiation strategy calls for the development of a good product or service that offers unique attributes that are valued by customers. Subway does not focus on just one segment because it has a broad target scope” (Liutu, 2010). With good food and friendly service, this is one way Subway can gain customer loyalty. Competitors and Defining the competitive landscape According to "" (2012), competitive landscape is defined as “a form of analysis that helps a business identify its primary online and offline rivals. Subway faces major competitors such as McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, Blimpie, and Jason’s Deli. In order to analyze each competitor, subway strategy team will have to develop a swott on each competitor. McDonald’s is the number one food service in the world, and continues to grow. McDonald’s is committed to quality products, innovation, and sustainability. McDonald’s is known for the Golden Arch, the slogans like “You deserve a break today” or “Do you believe in magic ("McDonald's," 2012)?” McDonald’s strengths are the increasing the brands value, diversity geographic presence, and large scale of operations. The weakness for McDonald’s is legal proceedings. The opportunities are the growth of franchise operated restaurants, and the growing beverages market.

Jason's Case Study

...Jason’s Case Study Abstract Jason, a twenty six year old male, is seen in the urgent care clinic with a laceration to his arm. He cut his arm on roof sheeting while at work. While assessing the laceration on Jason’s arm, the nurse notices that he has a sunburn, freckles and moles on his skin. While Jason is still in the urgent care, the patient’s wife calls and asked if the medical staff would assess a mole on her husband. The nurse also educated Jason regarding sunburns, changes in freckles, moles, and lesions. His complexion, hair and eye color puts Jason at a higher risk for cancer and complications of being in the sun. The nurse also reminded Jason to make an appointment to have his family doctor check the laceration on his arm to make sure no infection or complications have developed. Jason’s Case Study After the nurse introduces herself to Jason, she gets his vital signs, height and weight. The nurse or the doctor per facility protocol should cleanse the wound to remove any dirt or debris from the laceration site. The nurse measures the laceration in length and width. The nurse checks the laceration for foreign bodies or debris in his arm. The doctor may order an x-ray of his arm to rule out any foreign bodies that may be in Jason’s arm. Saline gauze should be placed over the laceration site until the doctor comes into the examination room to see the patient. The nurse asks Jason if he has had a tetanus shot in the past five years.

...two clients that he did work on during his first year because of complaints about Jason’s inappropriate comments in meetings with client personnel. Realizing there was a big problem with Jason, Jackson decided to schedule an appointment with other key people in the firm to discuss the future of Jason. From a rights perspective, Jason’s right to truth is threatened by his mentor William Jackson. Instead of telling Jason what his problem is, Jackson decided to end the meeting by making an excuse that he had to go somewhere. Jackson hasn’t counseled Jason in an honest and open manner. Jason is on the fast track with Rodgers & Philips, and he receives high evaluations from his seniors. However, he was requested not serve on the engagement team because of complaints about Jason’s inappropriate comments in meetings with client personnel. It is unfair between Jason and the other employees of Rodgers & Philips. All employees should be evaluated by the firm in an honest and fair manner. Jason was given a good evaluation on the audit by the senior. If an employee is being given a job evaluation, it is assumed that it will assess the employee’s strengths and weaknesses. However, the performance evaluation system is not a reliable one because the employee’s ability to get along with clients was omitted from the system.

Preschool Observation

...Aim To observe Jason's gross motor skills during outdoor play. The first attempt was not specific. Setting I observed Jason today, the 3rd November 2000 between 10.40 am and 10.50 am, during outdoor play. Jason is 5.4 years old. He is male. He attends a Reception Class of a Primary School. Now we know who is being observed. Rationale Observing outdoor play will give me an opportunity to learn more about gross motor skills in 5 year old children. The wet weather earlier this week prevented the children from playing outside so I took advantage of the fine weather today to complete this observation. I decided to observe Jason because he appears to be a confident child who is taller than many of the other children in his class. He enjoys outdoor play and shows this by smiling as he moves quickly in a controlled way. The method of observation is a written narrative of the 10 minutes of observation as it happened. This method is easy to use spontaneously because it requires no specialist equipment; only a pen and paper. There were sufficient members of staff supervising outdoor play so I was able to concentrate on observing Jason without intervening to direct his actions. This gives a reason for choosing to observe Jason's gross motor skills and reasons for the choice of observation technique. Observation I observed Jason walking. How did he walk? Where was he walking? What was he doing? Try to write the observation as if you are describing what is......

Jasons Attributes

...return home to Greece, but only after having dishonorably slain Apsyrtus. Jason’s weakness is epitomized by the epithet amechanos, which may be translated “embarrass” or “incertitude.” The table below presents a few epithets of Homeric heroes: Achilles “Son of Peleus” “Swift-footed” “Breaking through men” “Lion-hearted” “Like to the gods” Aeneas “Son of Anchises” “Counselor of the Trojans” “Lord of the Trojans” “Father” “Loyal/Pious” Agamemnon “Son of Atreus” “Wide-ruling” “The Lord Marshal” “Powerful” “Shepherd of the People” “Brilliant” The unprepossessing figure of Jason is further sunk in relief against the more dominating personalities of the heroes in his crew. The timorous captain often finds himself deferring to the decisions of Heracles and other great heroes of classical lore. Whither Jason? Some have argued that the kind of heroism which the Argonautica highlights is collective heroism; that a more democratic conception lends to a group-centered rather than individual notion of arete, or virtue. During last Thursday’s lecture for the Sunoikisis Greek Literature course, Norman Sandridge led a lively discussion on the topic of Jason’s leadership. Many in our class were attracted to the implications of the “collective heroism” thesis. Does Jason sacrifice his own honor for the good of the group? Jason’s speech upon finally grasping the fleece reveals his solidarity......

Comparison & Contrast Between Two Fast-Food Restaurants

...Jason’s Deli vs. Jersey Mike’s Subs Bernadine A. Mitchell COMM-155 May 12, 2013 Instructor: Martha Johnson Jason’s Deli and Jersey Mike’s Subs are fast-food restaurants that offer similar menu choices, but have different amenities and environment. Jason's Deli was founded in Beaumont, Texas in 1976 by Joe Tortorice Jr., and the company currently has approximately 230 U.S. locations in 28 states.[i] Jersey Mike's Subs is a submarine sandwich, or "sub", chain headquartered in Manasquan, New Jersey. The Jersey Mike's franchise has more than 600 stores across the United States.[ii] Both restaurants have superior submarine sandwiches and wraps. Jason’s Deli, however, was the first major restaurant to ban artificial trans fats and eliminate high fructose corn syrup in the U.S., providing menu choices to create healthier meals. Although both Jason’s Deli and Jersey Mike’s Subs provide an online menu for convenience and ease of ordering before you leave the house, there are distinct differences in their presentation. Jersey Mike’s Subs only provide a selection of subs and wraps, and a very limited Kid’s menu. At Jersey Mike's, Italian meats are emphasized, but American meats and cheeses are also provided. Jersey Mike’s Kid’s menu only consist of three items of ham & cheese, turkey & cheese, salami & cheese on a submarine roll, along with a drink and a cookie. Jason’s Deli also provide a variety of meats, and has a selection of four types of......

A Woman Scorned

...daughter of the ruler of this land, Kreon.”(17-19) Jason’s abandonment of his family has emotionally crushed Medea, to the point she has started cursing her children and own existence. Medea is very unhappy with Jason’s choice to divorce her and get married to the princess. Medea’s emotions play a major part of the plot and planning that she does to seek revenge against Jason. Euripides uses many different emotions throughout the play. Medea displaces multiple emotions ranging from sadness to rage to hatred. Medea said “Ah, wretch! Ah, lost in my sufferings, I wish I might die.”(97-98). She is saying she would rather be dead than to be alive and suffer from the pain Jason has caused her. “Ah, I have suffered, what should be wept for bitterly. I hate you, Children of a hateful mother. I curse you and your father, Let the whole house crash.”(112-115). the hatred for Jason and their children is manifesting within Medea until she is cursing the whole household. Medea’s nurse testifies about the degree to which Medea is hurting, “She lies without food and gives herself up to suffering, wasting away every moment of the day in tears.”(24-25) A divorce is an unbalanced, devastating ordeal for anyone to go through, even in this day and age. Euripides uses very faint and naïve characters to develop the depth of pain. Most of the characters in the play have strong backgrounds and parts, there are three minor but naïve characters. Jason’s two children and his new bride are both young......

The Little Book That Beats the Market

...sixth grade boy named Jason selling sticks of gum for 25 cents apiece. If each pack of gum has five pieces, Jason will be making $1.25 per pack. If Jason only paid 25 cents per pack, he will be making a profit of $1 per pack! Greenblatt takes this even further and estimates that if Jason sells 4 packs every school day (Monday through Friday), Jason will be making $20 a week. After doing further calculations, Greenblatt and his son figure out how much Jason could make if he sold 4 packs of gum every day until he graduated the 12th grade. By using this information, Greenblatt puts a value on Jason’s business and asks the reader how much they would pay for Jason’s business. He uses the idea of Jason’s business throughout the rest of the book. Every new concept that Greenblatt introduces, he comes back to Jason’s business and gives an example of how that concept could relate to Jason’s business. This gives the reader an easy understanding of how the different concepts that Greenblatt discusses affect certain businesses. Throughout the book, Joel Greenblatt discusses a “magic formula” to determine which stocks to invest in that will help you beat the stock market. He gives hard evidence that shows how this magic formula has not only worked in the past but why it will work in years to come. The “magic formula” consists of breaking down companies into two categories. The first category is price to earnings ratio. Greenblatt recommends ranking the top 3,500 companies......

...“Poetics.” However, even though Medea can be accurately categorized as a Greek tragedy, the story lacks a tragic hero. Neither of the two main characters, Medea or Jason, possess all the traits that exist in a tragic hero. According to Aristotle, there are three unities of theatre that make plays more pleasurable for the audience. Euripides employs all three. Medea has unity of action, as it only contains one main plot: Medea’s revenge. This makes the story simple for the audience to follow. There is also unity of time, because all of the action involved in the plot occurs in one day. This action unfolds in only one location: Medea’s home. The latter exemplifies unity of place. For example, when Medea’s children bring Jason’s new bride the poison dress and diadem, the setting does not change to the home of Jason and his wife. Rather, a messenger arrives at Medea’s house to report what has happened to the princess. Euripides’ use of the three unities brings the plot together and makes it easy to understand. In addition to the three unities, Medea includes all six of Aristotle’s elements of theatre. The most important element of theatre is the plot. The plot of Medea is very straightforward, and occurs in a logical sequence. The thought of this plot can be expressed in a single sentence: Medea’s heart is broken by Jason when he marries another woman, which leads her to seek revenge. In this play, characterization is the primary focus, and the......

M1 Using the Case Studies Assess the Role of Effective Communication and Effective Interpersonal Interaction with Reference to Theories of Communication

...were many multi-disciplinary meetings to discuss Jason’s progress with a goal to getting Jason as independent as possible. This is an example of the health care professionals working effectively together to ensure Jason is receiving the best possible care while he is in hospital. These multi-disciplinary meetings would not happen if health care professionals did not communicate together and bring their ideas forward to each other. The nurses in the hospital are trying their best to ensure Jason has a pleasant experience. The staff that works with Jason have to feed him, take him to the toilet and clean his teeth etc. As Jason needs a lot of attention it is important that the health care workers work together to ensure all his needs are accommodated for and as a result of this the workers could also try to develop his communication while they are working with him. Within the Jason Young case study we can also see that the argyles communication cycle is working effectively. Jason was very thankful that there was a group of friends with him when he decided to jump into the river. An example of the argyles cycle working effectively was when one of his friends phoned for the ambulance to take Jason to the local A & E department. This particularly displays good communication. We can clearly see from this case study where the cycle has not been so effective. As a team of specialists were meeting on a regular basis to monitor Jason’s progress, they thought that at the beginning the...
