Jules Walker

If I were the store supervisor of a shoe store inside a local mall, having 2 shift managers and seven employees just coming back after three days from corporate headquarters and I have ten “items” in my inbox that need to be taken care of including; two employment applications (I have no positions available at this time), a note from Mary (an employee) regarding vacation requests, a notice from the mall regarding change of hours for an upcoming holiday, a customer complaint, four shipping receipts indicating there is about 230 pairs of shoes that have been delivered and need to be stocked, three bids from different companies responding to my request for bids on new cash register, a notice from the fire department regarding an impending inspection, a note that the washrooms (restrooms) are out of order, a notice from the corporate headquarters stating a holiday sale will begin soon and five advertisements and two catalogs from various vendors.
After going thought my inbox I have decided that there are several items that I can delegate to my shift managers in order to run the store most effectively and to keep things flowing. The two job applications that were turned in while I was away, because there are no openings right now. The shift manager just needs to call the applicants and let them know that we have no openings and their application will remain on file for 60 days. Four shipping receipts indicating I have roughly 130 pairs of shoes that have been received in the store and need to be stocked; the shift managers as well as the employees can work on stocking the shoes that came in there is not need for me to have to do that but if I have time I will go help them.

Jules Ferry's Speech

...Jules Ferry’s speech He sent an army in China and that created a big scandal in France. He was called the Tankinois because the news of the retreat shook his government and forced him to quit. The French won allowing France to conquer the Gulf of Tonkin in China. Jules Ferry was a proponent of colonization. Why? The inferior race be civilized by the superior class (ethnocentrism). It is not racism by nature. It is a strange imperialism He has a genuine feeling that France had a duty to dominate/ lead the rest the world. This is why the France and US are always in competition because they both consider that they need to lead the world. Both France and England had the same idea of civilizing Africans. Kipling, “The White Man’s Burden”. The White man has to go to Africa and civilize it. The French ruled in a much more direct way than the English way. The English were in the colonies for money while the French had a bigger idea of civilization. They tried to create an elite in every colony: Ecole Normale in Africa. The elites would then go to France and be sent back to Africa to civilize the rest of Africa. However, that created an adverse effect since the African elites analyzed the French arguments and used their return to Africa as a way to denounce the French system/ education. Race in 19th century France: group of people not linked by color. Race was a feeling of belonging: the rural race. However, the term race is mostly associated with country: French, German,......

...The Shoe Industry The shoe industry is one of the biggest moneymakers in the market, but it's facing many changes, rushes, and difficulties. The big power in the industry is Nike inc. which all the other companies are trying to be like. Some changes are the industry as a whole is moving there factories to the far east such as China. The reason for this is they are trying to save costs for producing there shoes by paying there workers less because they are in the far east. Nike and Reebok have already been in the east. The shoe industry not including Nike inc. is trying to make rushes to be number one, two, and three. Another rush the industry is making, is the rush for the deadline of sports shoes. In other words coming up with shoes for the sports that are in season. The difficulties the shoe industry has are making shoes that all people wear such as setting a style for both inner city people and suburb people. Another difficulty the shoe industry has is getting its stock value to rise again because all but Nike and Fila's stock has dropped. This is what the shoe industry is all about and the difficulties, problems, and advances it has. There are four major companies in the shoe industry. The dominant industry is Nike inc.. Then going down the line is Reebok, Fila, and Adidas. Nike being the superpower has been in front of all the other industries for many years. Right now Reebok is the closest company to Nike and is $2,459 behind in value in MIL.......

...an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function. Additionally fashion has often dictated many design elements, such as whether shoes have very high heels or flat ones. Contemporary footwear varies widely in style, complexity and cost. Basic sandals may consist of only a thin sole and simple strap. High fashion shoes may be made of very expensive materials in complex construction and sell for thousands of dollars a pair. Other shoes are for very specific purposes, such as boots specially designed for mountaineering or skiing. Shoes have traditionally been made from leather, wood or canvas, but are increasingly made from rubber, plastics, and other petrochemical-derived materials. The foot contains more bones than any other single part of the body. Though it has evolved over hundreds of thousands of years in relation to vastly varied terrain and climate conditions, the foot is still vulnerable to environmental hazards such as sharp rocks and hot ground, against which shoes can protect.A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities.

...To: Ma’am Asmarah Manolo Blanik Shoes, same as clothing need their own designer. In the fashion world there are several names that left a lasting mark on the industry for both shoes and clothing. Despite the many “youngsters” some of the older generation will always be on the first line, first to instruct the young and second to remind customers that classic has no age. We will introduce you to the most famous shoe designers whom since their inception and market penetration have left a lasting trail to follow and be recognizable. Their shoes are expensive, qualitative and wearing them, mean that your standard of living is high. We start with Manolo Blahnik. Name which some of us can hear only on those elaborate series in which the character necessarily has 2-3, and why not 20 pairs of these shoes. His career began exactly 30 years ago. During this time, his shoes have come a long evolutionary path, and what is more important, today he is the most amazing shoe designer who can easily win the heart of every woman. Born to a Czech father and a Spanish mother and raised in the Canary Islands (Spain), Blahnik graduated from the University of Geneva in 1965 and studied art in Paris. He moved to London in 1968 to work at fashion boutique "Zapata" and wrote for Vogue Italia. After showing his portfolio of fashions and set designs to Diana Vreeland, she told him that he should design only footwear. In 1972, Ossie Clark invited him to create shoes for his runway show.

Shoes for Moos

...Case Title: Shoes for Moos Name: Jesse Senst Date: 3/6/14 Section number: 002 TurnItIn.com receipt number: A. Problem identification and justification. After conducting an in-depth situational analysis and finding the target market and its size along with alternatives to pricing, product, channel, and promotion of Shoes for MOOs, Mr. Wells needs to find the best channel to market his product. With having such a low budget of $25,000 and being a start-up company, Mr. Wells needs to be very efficient with his money and his time since he is currently running another business. An additional challenge is the pairing of promotions that are best for each channel. B. Alternative identification 1. Mr. Wells could pursue a direct channel strategy where he would use direct mail instead of using a middleman for distribution of his product. With this strategy, he would be able to have low variable costs of $2.67 and a total investment of $21.67 for each shoe. Since he says in the case that he would like the have the selling price above $39.99, but below $80.00, this approach would allow Mr. Wells to sell the shoe at a lower price to customers than if he involved retailers that demand margins which would in-turn make the customer pay a higher price and give him less profit. With this in mind, he could use more of his budget on promotions such as magazine advertisements, print flyers that would be mailed to farmers in Canada, radio ads, word of mouth, and tabling at conventions......

Tom's Shoes

...contribute resources to a large number of the world’s population, something that can improve their health in one way or another. There are a lot of companies out there that do just that, but one that I think is just really cool is Tom’s Shoes. Tom’s Shoes was created by Blake Mycoskie in 2006 after he visiting Argentina and noticing that in the poorer communities there was an awful lot of people with no shoes. He had been looking for new business venture but just hadn’t come up with one until then. He saw a woman in Argentina with a pair of shoes on that looked like they would be practical and comfortable and decided he would go home and design a pair of shoes after that fashion and then sell them. Not just sell them though. He decided that for every pair of Alpargota canvas shoes that he sold, he would give a pair to someone in Argentina or another developing country to someone that didn’t have shoes. To date he has given away over 400,000 pairs. He also started giving shoes to needy children in the US. Children or adults without shoes can pose many different health risks. They can get fugus’, bacteria, cracks, possible impalements, blood poisonings from wounds that aren’t covered, frost bite in severe weather and many more. Put simply, shoes are important to our health (and comfort). This was not part of the article I read but I just felt it was important to add to emphasize the social responsibility of Blake’s actions when he started this company. Since starting......

...footwear is increasing. Pakistan is one of the most populous countries in the World and according to an estimate with an average population growth of 2.25 percent, about 3 million children have been born during the year 2005-06, signaling the growing demand for footwear in Pakistan. It is also estimated that about 60 percent of the World's total consumption consists of simple footwear made entirely of non-leather materials and that for the remaining 40 percent only the upper part of the shoe is made of leather. In the manufacturing of footwear, most frequently used material consists upon leather, man-made materials, rubber / canvas / synthetic and textile along accessories. Different type of shoes are being produced by the local industry e.g. sportsmen, army, disabled persons and safety shoes for the industrial workers etc. The population of Pakistan is expected to be about 172 million in the year 2010. Keeping in view the growth in population, the growth in the demand of footwear industry is also anticipated. Though, significant growth has taken place in the Shoe Industry of Pakistan, but there is a view that it has not been up to the mark and the industry has suffered due to a growing and fierce competition of the emerging economies like India and China. There is a general perception that after suffering from the cut-throat competition especially with China, the footwear industry is doing better especially in the previous two years and it is regaining the strength to......

Jules Ferry a Defense of French Imperialism

...Jules Ferry: A Defense of French Imperialism Jules Ferry: A Defense of French Imperialism Jules Ferry was Prime Minister of France as that nation launched its imperial expansion. In a debate with member of the French Parliament, Ferry defends the decision to expand. According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have colonies? Ferry observed other countries prior to making his decisions. It seemed that other countries began to export more goods than France. Germany was setting up trade barriers; because across the ocean the United States of America have become extreme protectionists. Therefore if they had more colonies they set up more so that they could send more of their goods out of the country. “Europe and particularly those of our own rich and hardworking Country: the need for export markets.” Other countries also lack their export markets. “Yes, what is lacking for our great industry, drawn irrevocably on to the path of exportation by the (free trade) treaties of 1860 [The reference is to a trade treaty between Great Britain and France that lowered tariffs between the two nations], what it lacks more and more is export markets.” What arguments against imperialism have been raised by Ferry's critics? How does he counter them? To which the critics say: “Oh! You dare to say this in the country which has proclaimed the rights of man!” They also say that he is justifying the slavery.

Jules Ferry Case Study

... Case Study: Jules Ferry Melissa Elliott Chamberlain College of Nursing HIST 410 Professor Franklin March 06, 2016 Case Study: Jules Ferry 1. According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have colonies? As an imperialist, Jules Ferry felt that France should be exploring and taking over new nations. He claimed colonial expansion was a great need that had become extremely urgent by the people and industrialized population of Europe (Kleinman, 1897). He stated that other countries, United States and Germany, were exporting so much more than France was. Jules Ferry compiled a report of statistics with his perspective of that great need for colonial expansion (Kleinman, 1897). This report asked questions daring the readers to disagree. Asking if it was a “fantasy”, a “concern that could wait for the future” or a “crying need” for the people of France and its industrial population (Kleinman, 1897). In his mind, he was just voicing what others could plainly see themselves just by looking around. In his words “France needs more outlets for exporting (Kleinman, 1897, para. 2)”. He proved this by blaming Germany for France not having enough outlets because they were setting trade barriers up. Then he blamed the United States for supporting Germany because the U.S. had become “protectionists and extreme protectionists at that (Kleinman, 1897, para. 2)”. He claimed that because of the dwindling markets it was becoming more......

...Case Study #1: Jules Ferry DeVry University HIST 410 March 05, 2016 Case Study #1 : Jules Ferry 1. According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have colonies? According to Ferry, the recent development in the world that made that made France to have colonies was the need outlets or to create market for their goods after post industrialization. Their next door neighbor Germany have some trade barriers in place that will not grant France free hand to trade on the goods they are producing. To this end, the only way to boost their economy was to source for other outlets where these goods will be sold as to keep the economy alive and thus taking over both their political and economic system. This is to say that the colonies created by France was not intentionally to develop or help those economies grow primarily but to use them as an opportunity to grow their own economy and in the long run will lead to exploitation of those nonwestern nations. Even when they move into those economies and build their industries, the deprive the indigenes of the opportunity to manage and rule their lives. They are turned to who live on pay with the hope that something good is brought to them from the west and in turn their expertise and human capital is used to their own detriment. Competition among other industrialized in seizing some markets for their goods like North America created a fear that if France do not act fast, the entire......

...1. According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have colonies? In an argument with members of the French Parliament, Ferry defends the decisions to expand. Other countries began to export more goods than France, so essentially, if they (France) had more colonies, they could export more goods out of the country. Jules made it a point for it to be known that outlets were in great need, and lacking because of Germany’s trade barriers, and also at this point the United States became protectionists. 2. What arguments against imperialism have been raised by Ferry's critics? How does he counter them? Critics say “Oh! You dare to say this in the country which has proclaimed the rights of man!” They include that he is justifying slavery. Ferry responds and says that he is allowed to impose regular commerce upon them. Jules says that his race is the superior race and therefore his race has rights over inferior races. The critics also say he is justifying slavery. Jules responds, “I repeat, that the superior races have a right because they have a duty. They have the duty to civilize the inferior races . . . . In the history of earlier centuries these duties, gentlemen, have often been misunderstood; and certainly when the Spanish soldiers and explorers introduced slavery into Central America, they did not fulfill their duty as men of a higher race . . . . But, in our time, I maintain that European nations acquit themselves with......

DESCRIPTION OF GPS SHOES Figure 1: designer GPS shoes, Dominic Wilcox British designer Dominic Wilcox has created a pair of prototype shoes which offer to guide the wearer home with built-in GPS navigation. The inspiration for the clever footwear derives from The Wizard of Oz character Dorothy’s red shoes, which famously transported her home with a click of her heels. Naturally, the GPS system within Wilcox’s shoes is also activated by clicking the heels together. Figure 2: GPS shoes designed by dominicwilcox The shoes, named No Place Like Home, were commissioned by the Global Footprint project in Northamptonshire, which seeks to highlight the county's rich history of shoe making. In order to construct his design, Wilcox teamed up with interactive arts and technology expert Becky Stewart and Northamptonshire shoe maker Stamp Shoes. A GPS unit contained within the heel of the left shoe communicates wirelessly with the right shoe and provides data to the integrated LED lights, which display both the correct direction home, and how much of the journey still remains.

...High Step Shoes-Student Activity 1 High Step Sport Shoes: A Linear Programming Problem Linear programming is a method often used to solve large, complicated problems. These problems often require a manager to determine how to use the company’s limited resources most efficiently. In order to see how linear programming is used to solve such problems, let’s investigate a problem experienced at the High Step Shoe factory. The High Step Shoe problem is just a fraction of the size of those actually encountered in the real world. Step 1: Understanding the problem Mr. B. Ball, director of manufacturing for the High Step Sports Shoe Corporation wants to maximize the company’s profits. The company makes two brands of sport shoe, Airheads and Groundeds. The company earns $10 profit on each pair of Airheads and $8.50 profit on each pair of Groundeds. The steps in manufacturing the shoes include cutting the materials on a machine and having workers assemble the pieces into shoes. A = number of pairs of Airheads produced each week G = number of pairs of Groundeds produced each week Mr. B. Ball’s goal is to make the most money or maximize his profits. Using A and G, write a function to model the profit. 1. Profit = _______ A + _______ G This function is called the objective function. The number of machines, workers, and factory operating hours put constraints on the number of pairs of shoes that the company can make. High Step Sport Shoe Corporation has the......
