...Use this tool as an effective way to identify the merits (PROS) and the drawbacks or costs (CONS) of alternatives. More then a simple pros/cons evaluation, this tool forces you to look at ways of ''FIXING” the CONS - resulting in a final 'picture' of the merits and costs (costs = the fixes,  along with the cons you can't fix) for a particular alternative.  This is a good technique to use when you have only a couple of alternatives to consider. This tool is also good to use when you have identified one or two remaining alternatives after using other tools (eg. Simple Ranking or SMART) to do a 'reality check' and cost/benefit analysis.   I have also seen students use it effectively for indentifying linked decision to a particular alternative and implementation planning. 1. Write down the alternative you plan to evaluate 2. List up all the benefits you can. Use a white board for this, or post-it notes. Then consolidate these by combining and organizing them. (eg. combine those that are similar or redundant by expressing it as one Pro, and eliminate any frivolers PROS that are not important). Write down the consolidated PROS in the template PROS box. 3. Now list up all the Cons (using white board, or post-it notes). Organize and consolidate as you did with the PROS. Write down the consolidated CONS in the box. 4. Now get creative and look at how you can eliminate a each CON by ‘FIXING IT’. For example, say you were assessing the alternative ‘To Get......

She was born in Littlehampton in 1942 as the child of an Italian immigrant couple in an English seaside town. She started the Body Shop in 1976 simply to create a livelihood for herself and her two daughters, while her husband, Gordon, was trekking across the America. She made her fortune from selling natural ethical products hair care and body moisturizers that were meant for women.

...quintiles of vitams and caffeine that your inducing does have quite the side effect. Anita knows that bran flakes are higher in fiber than corn flakes are, but she cannot think of any other changes. A few days after making the suggested changes, Anita complains that she is bloated and feels more constipated than she was before changing her diet.   One possible reason that Anita felt bloated and more constipated than she was before changing her diet, is that the bran flakes and the banana combination could have the effect of causing more constipation, due to the congested nature of the fiber that is located within the banana, which when mixed with the fiber of the bran flakes, causes bloating and congestion within her intestines as this food is being digested. In addition, it is also quite possible that the bran flake and orange juice combination can also be the cause of her bloated feeling, due to the fact that the combination of high-fiber bran flakes and orange juice caused her to develop gas, which resulted in the bloated feeling that she has. In essence, it appears that the food combination that has occurred after she changed to bran flakes, is the major contributor to the bloating and constipation that she feels. In order for Anita to be able to consume more fiber and avoid the bloating and constipation, Anita should probably replace the orange juice with water in the morning. In addition, Anita should replace the white hamburger bun with a wheat hamburger bun, and......

Today, the Body Shop (BS) has grown from being a single “hippie” store in England to a multinational company with over 2265 stores in 50 countries enjoying sales of £820,000 in 2006/2007 period. (mintel 2006) People say that “one person cannot make a difference” but Anita Roddick proved it wrong by sticking to here ideals and ideas of doing business. This extract from the Body Shop’s mission statement ‘to dedicate our business to the pursuit of social and environmental change’ (, shows us how she created a new way of dealing with customer needs and wants. She saw it as a better option to put customer and society in the first place and by doing so, gain sales for good conduct.

...The Lord was in the still small voice - 1 Kings 19:12. In what other ways might we hear The Lord speaking? This overview considers the question set, possible ways to interpret it and the need to frame it within an Anglican course context that itself reflects rich, diverse practices of praising, listening to and hearing God. The title of this essay refers to Elijah’s two mountain top experiences on Carmel and Horeb that depict how God speaks in contrasting ways; through spectacular events and displays of power and through a whisper which both calms and rouses the heart. Moving quickly through the story in 1 Kings 19, we see Elijah who has stopped rain, challenge the false prophets of Baal and Asherath to reveal the true God in a fiery showdown on Mount Carmel. After he has ordered the death of the false prophets, Queen Jezebel threatens his life. Elijah, discouraged, flees into the wilderness heading for Mount Horeb (Sinai) a significant place of God’s voice and revelation to Moses, at a key moment in the history of Israel. Perhaps in journeying to Sinai, Elijah hoped for a fresh encounter and revelation of God. Unlike Moses’ experience, God does not partially unveil his countenance. Instead, Elijah hears a still small voice in his cave of refuge, with God asking him what he is doing there. We might imagine that after calling out to God and seeing him work through spectacular events that Elijah would be reassured of God’s infinite power and love. However he is......

Apart from being an author, she is also an author and a commentator well versed in aboriginal studies. Anita Heiss largely considers herself as an aboriginal Australian. Aboriginal Australians have been identified as the first persons in the human history to have settled in Australia along the Torres Strait islands. It has been argued that these aboriginal first moved from Africa and the Asian and Australian continent about 70,000 years ago (Hodge, 1990). In this regard, most of Anita Heiss’ works have been about aboriginal topics, mostly related to race. The issues that Anita Heiss has addressed in most of her works revolve around the topic of race and aboriginal communities of Australia. Living in a world defined by racial hostilities, Anita Heiss found herself having to strain in a world where she considered home. Although being from the race that first settled in Australia, recent years saw white domination which led to persistence of white-black race competition which in most cases was violent. Anita Heiss took such racial differences and......

...famous for her poetry novels such us her stories that are primarily for children. Anita is the main character in this short story. And the story isn’t only about her, but also about her best friend, Marion. They have been best friends since they were kids. The love of these two friendships is very strong, which is very easy to see in the short story as the protagonist and her friend both have a nickname for each other. The names they gave each other were Barn and Tawny. Anita would be the one nicknamed Barn and Marion nicknamed Tawny. “We gave each other nicknames that night as if to remember, and they stuck well past our forties. I was Barn and she was Tawny. Tawny and Barn. We thought it made us sound like a pair of detectives like Starsky and Hutch1, or a pair of comedians like Eric and Ernie2”. (Line 5-8). So from here, we as the readers can tell that, the childhood names have been their trademark as they have grown and are now in their 40s. A lot of flashback is almost what this short story is told in, but part of it is also told in the present. Barn and Tawny aka Anita and Marion are still the same meant in the sense that they both remember the things that have occurred in their childhood and which they have not managed to finish. This passage could easily lead us to the fact that, the theme of this short story is about developing. The narrator in this short story is clearly Anita.

Owl by Jackie Kay

...and first-person-narrative Anita personalizes as the barn owl because she has to go through her mid-life crisis even though what consequences it might bring. The tawny symbolizes guidance and wisdom. It is Anita's best friend, Marion, who plays this role. The connection and relation to the owl express Anita (Barns) and Marion's (Tawny) friendship. The reason they recall these memories, is to remember how fun and uncomplicated life was during their childhood. It begins with a flashback where Anita, also known as Barn recalls her childhood with her best friend Marion, also known as Tawny. Marion and Anita were visiting a farmland where their parents used to take them. At this farm, they found a barn Owl, which they admired and this is where Anita got her nickname. This clearly shows their close friendship, which they have held on to for their whole life since they still call each other nicknames instead of their actual names and talk about old memories. Anita appears to be a confused and insecure woman, having a mid-life crisis and the need to talk about with Marion. She is not happy with the man she is living with, and she is afraid of the consequences it might bring to leave him: "I could not' imagine my nights. I could not think what the nights would be like, locking up downstairs, taking the dog out for the last walk and then locking up, bolting the door." (P4.L106). She does not seem to be ready for what the future holds. Marion tells Anita that she will be okay......

Essay on Dame Anita Roddick

...Dame Anita Roddick and The Body Shop: Getting Started The daughter of Italian immigrants born and raised in the UK, Anita Perella began developing her legendary work ethic and keen business sense at an early age as she and her siblings worked tirelessly in her parent’s café as children. It was very common in those days for immigrant children to labor as hard as (if not harder) than their adult counterparts and Anita was no exception. She was a hard worker but also garnered a reputation for being a “rebel” by challenging the ideas and concepts of those around her. It is undoubtedly these traits (among others)—her tireless work ethic, savvy business sense, and willingness to think outside the box—which led to the eventual creation and overwhelming success of Anita’s legacy: The Body Shop. By the mid-70’s Anita had already completed her college education and began to travel the world, drifting from one position to another—teaching in Israel, working for the United Nations in Geneva..etc—before deciding to become a student of the world by exploring other nations and cultures. In her own words: “(…) that's when I first understood the power of community and a world beyond our Western notion, and the role women could play in it. It was education through experience, and it was where I got the ideas for The Body Shop.” When she returned from her expedition Anita met and fell in love with her future husband and the father of her two daughters; Gordon Roddick. Together the couple......
