...RUNNING HEAD: COMMUNICATION GENRE Communication Genre Comparative Analysis Paper Pamela E. Mundhenk Week 2 Assignment COM/PA 530 Professor J. Sanfillippo July 29, 2013 University of Phoenix Communication Genre Comparative Analysis Introduction Public administrators use many communication genres to reach their audiences. These genres range from business cards to governmental proposals. Each one has its own purpose. Each one has its own way of getting information to the audience quickly and efficiently. Each one has been affected by technology. Each has its own discourse conventions associated with it. And each has its own method of distribution—either external or internal. The purpose of this analysis is to compare some of these genres and explain how each one gets information to the intended audience effectively. The Purpose The business card genre introduces a reader to the person named on the card and provides professional information about that person. It helps the reader gain insight to pertinent information concerning the cardholder by providing the cardholder’s name, the agency’s name, an office phone number, address, and e-mail address.

Comparative Analysis

...Comparative Analysis Rural hospitals across the world are being affected financially. Rural communities are less wealthy; the majority of the residents are uninsured. They tend to use the emergency room as their primary care, putting a financial burned on the hospital. In 1986 the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) was enacted by congress as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act (COBRA). EMTALA allows uninsured patients to receive care with an emergency condition regardless of insurance status or the ability to pay. The law states the patient may not be turned away and care cannot be delayed due to pay concerns. EMTALA requires the hospital to stabilize the patient before transferring or discharging the patient (Encyclopedia of Everyday Laws, 2013). According to The Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 135 million people visit the emergency room each year and hospitals lose approximately $34 billion in unpaid medical bills. With the passing of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act many unnecessary or preventable emergency room visits will be eliminated. My action plan for Ashe Memorial Hospital is to design a program to decrease the number of uninsured patients using the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). By decreasing the number of uninsured people, it will also: • decrease the number of emergency room visits • increase the number of people to receive preventative care • increase the quality of patient......

Narragansett Yacht Company

...Inventory Management 30 NARRAGANSETT YACHT CORPORATION Narragansett Yacht manufactures fiberglass sailboats which range from 18-foot day sailors to 50foot ocean racing yachts. The company was founded in Newport, Rhode Island, a hotbed of sailing activity, but high labor costs forced it to move its manufacturing operations to Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1990. The boat-building industry is very competitive and highly labor intensive, and profitability depends on getting the maximum efficiency out of the labor force. Narragansett has managed to keep its workforce nonunionized; this means that all of its employees can be shifted from task to task, and Narragansett can thus maintain flexibility. However, the price for this freedom has been a relatively high basic wage rate and a no-layoff policy. The no-layoff policy, in turn, makes it essential that the workforce is kept productively employed; this means that Narragansett simply must not run out of the various parts that go into the assembly of a boat. Therefore, a good inventory management system, which must track a large and varied inventory of parts ranging from inboard diesel engines and masts costing thousands of dollars each to screws and rivets costing only pennies each, is essential. Sailboats are built in sequential steps. First, the major fiberglass components are laid up in molds. To begin, each mold is cleaned and inspected, and if no damage is found, the mold is waxed with an agent which facilitates......

Comparative Analysis

...Comparative Analysis Debate has sparked among residents of the East Park area after the ruination of a “freshly painted” wall of an East Park Café. The editorial piece ‘The good, the bad and the ugly’ written by the editor, published in ‘The Daily Tribute’ 16th July 2009, is written in response to this “puerile cultural vandalism”. The editor slams council officials and the local government for “[dragging their] heels for months” and then “[refusing] to offer support” to local businesses and individuals. One day after the publication of this editorial piece, Michaela Whitehouse, a member of the East Park council, writes in response to the article. Whitehouse intends to set the facts straight and to “address [the editors] less enlightened remarks” through her angry yet controlled tone. The editor presents his article with the bold, cliché title ‘The good, the bad and the ugly’ capturing the attention of ‘The Daily Tribute’ readers. Accompanied by a picture dominated by “lurid and tasteless sexual diagrams and obscenities”, the editor is able to establish the demoralising effects of graffiti. The graffiti resembling the “ugly” from the title, demonstrates that these “thugs” are not interested in what their finished product looks like; they will continue to “desecrate” properties at their own accord. The opening paragraph of the editorial embeds strong and attention grabbing language enforcing the difference between hardworking “entrepreneurs” and “dual-mortgage bearers” and......

Toyota Company

... Toyota Company Name University Affiliation History and back ground of Toyota Motor Corporation Toyota Motor Corporation is a Japanese automobile company that came into existence in 1937. This company was established mainly to manufacture automobile after the founder had traveled to Europe and the US to investigate how to manufacture gasoline powered engine (Kalb, 2012). The company came into existence because there was a need to develop a local automobile by Japan since the government needed domestic automobile production units because it had war with China (Meyer, 2015). The company produced its first engine known as Type A engine which was used in its first models of passenger and truck vehicles. In 1950, a separate Toyota Motor sales company was established to deal mainly with the marketing of the Toyota car products. This separate company lasted until 1982. In the 1950s, the Toyopet dealer chain has established a chain which specialized in the production of Toyopet Model SA; by 1957, Toyota Company managed to start exporting its car products to other parts of the world such as Australia, United States, and Europe (Kalb, 2012). In 1982, Toyota Motors Company and Toyota Motor Sales merged forming one company known as Toyota Motor Corporation. The company started establishing new brands of vehicles that surpassed the brands of the competitors (Kalb, 2012). In the 1990s towards the new century, the company started to branch out by adding many larger and luxurious......

Toyota: Analysis

...Toyota challenged the US car industry to develop quality compact, fuel efficient, economic vehicles at an affordable cost. They utilized the philosophies of American statistician Dr. William Edwards Deming to improve design, product quality, testing and sales. With such a strong history in quality and production efficiency will Toyota be able to recover from the current recall scandals? How should Toyota present itself to the consumer as it attempts to rectify this growing situation? How can they reinvigorate their sales and convince the public they can still provide a quality product? Industry The automobile industry "is considered to be highly capital and labor intensive." Majority of the revenue in this industry comes from selling automobiles but the parts market is highly profitable as well. Profitability of companies in this industry depends on the manufacturing efficiency, the quality of the product, and the marketing with which the product is advertised. Demand for automobiles is driven by employment and interest rates. Porter's Five Forces model is helpful in determining the intensity of competition and the level of profitability in a given industry and the Five Forces of Competition Framework for the automobile industry is shown below in Figure 1. Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) is a multinational corporation headquartered in Japan. Toyota is the world's largest automaker and has the US largest sales.
