SynthesisThe Michelin Star with its goal of giving the restaurant its full potential to serve and satisfy diners, could have made an impact and perception to ‘accredited’ restaurants in Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City.
In order to gain a competitive advantage in the present market, restaurants should have to offer meal having a good value in fairness with the ambience or place.

Service quality is an attitude or global judgment about the superiority of a service. To be globally competitive service industries must achieve a quality service that exceeds customers’ expectation. Service quality determines an organizations success or failure. Companies and organizations that virtually every industry employs customer satisfaction measures for the straightforward reason that satisfied customers are essential for a successful business.
Service quality also determines a customer’s satisfaction. However, the determinants of service quality are complicated with the dynamic business environment. Therefore, this measurement dimensions depend on the industry itself. Service quality is influenced by expectation, process quality and output quality; in other words the standards of service is defined by customers who have experienced that service and used their experience and feelings to form a judgment. In order to achieve a quality service organization, commitment from employees and support from all levels of management is necessary.
Therefore, it is important for managers who provide goods or services constantly to keep track of information about the company’s well being as far a meeting its customers’ needs are concerned. Service companies are trying to find ways to improve and provide superior quality service to satisfy their customers. He also mentioned that satisfying customers is an ultimate goal for every company, as customers are the greatest resources, both…...

...By first glance at the title Stars, I assumed the story would have something to do with the author’s perception of the constellations during the night. By my growing knowledge of the Holocaust I then remembered the Star of David was very significant in determining Jews from non-Jews. It still baffles me to believe that this symbol, which is worn on chains by people of the Jewish faith today, could be used to discriminate one race from the other and aid in their humiliation and ultimately their death. During the reading, I was hearing the similar story of the suffering and measures taken by Jews while in the concentration camps. However, I discovered a different tone than most other stories. Even though Michael was frightened like the rest, he chose to act in order to save his cousin. His courage and quick thinking skills, which benefited Jews greatly during this period of persecution, not only saved himself but saved another by risking his life in exchange. A memory bubble came to me of the numerous times I stood standing in line at a bar without being of the legal age to drink alcohol. Most occasions I would hand the bouncer my authentic I.D. stating that I was underage and he would mark my hand with an “X” or something similar to show that I wasn’t allowed to drink while in the bar. Thinking on my feet, I learned that sometimes the “X” would come right off if I ran quickly to the bathroom to wash it off. Other times I would put Chap-Stick on the back of my......

Michelin Porter Analysis

...pneumatique que sont Michelin, Goodyear et Bridgestone ont opté pour une politique d’acquisition à la fin des années 1980 (Bridgestone a racheté Firestone, Michelin Uniroyal-Goodrich et Goodyear Dunlop). Ils forment également des alliances stratégiques et des joint-ventures ce qui leur permet de réaliser d’importantes économies d’échelle. * L’intensité capitalistique : L’industrie du pneumatique est à forte intensité capitalistique (par exemple, l’intensité capitalistique de Michelin est de 0,75 en 2012). En effet, pour pouvoir construire des pneus il faut des chaînes de production complexes d’autant plus que les trois leaders de ce marché usent de beaucoup de technologies. * L’accès aux réseaux de distribution : ??????? * La capacité de réaction des organisations en place : Les nouveaux entrants que sont les firmes asiatiques (Cheng Shin, GITI Tire et Triangle) misent sur le bas de gamme. Il est vrai que le marché du pneu en Asie ne cesse d’augmenter. Selon les chiffres de l’IRSG (International Ruber Study Group), la production chinoise aurait quasi triplé entre 2000 et 2005. Néanmoins, les leaders sont durablement implantés et gardent leur avance grâce à leur savoir-faire (139 brevets par Michelin en 2010), des partenariats, … En outre, les trois leaders du marché se tournent vers l’écologie : ils sont premiers pour la construction de pneus plus propre et s’orientent vers le traitement de fin de vie des pneus.

Now active in more than 170 countries, Michelin operates across all continents of the world, manufacturing and selling tyres for all kinds of vehicles, publishing maps and guides, and operating Specialist digital services. Most people recognize our world famous mascot, Bibendum, 'The Michelin man', looking good considering his age! My own division is concerned with tyres made for heavy goods vehicles over 3.5tonnes, including trucks, coaches, and buses. In the UK and the Republic of Ireland, we have an extensive sales force supporting thousands of tyre distributors, from tyres used in cars and trucks, to those used in specialist industrial and earthmoving equipment. To conduct environmental scanning, we adopt several approaches. We use joint panels with key national and regional trade journals, conducting telephone questionnaires with customers on challenges, issues, and developments in the haulage industry. Our sales Force in the UK and Ireland is responsible for collecting market intelligence, especially on competitors' actions and products. We work with the Road Haulage Association and the Freight Transport Association, which offers us a chance to mix with customers in a non-selling environment, and we belong to the Euro Pool organization, an independent body which acts on behalf of all European tyre manufacturers. Here, we declare our sales on a...

Science of Stars

...Science of Stars Sherry LaFace University of Phoenix SCI/151 Robert Austin July 15, 2013 Telescopes are tools that provide a way to collect and process electromagnetic radiation that is in space and in the universe. Planets, stars, and other galaxies are all visible through telescopes which magnify the image that is out in space so that it is more visible through the magnification. Through the magnification of telescopes astronomers can study and learn more about the planets and stars that are being viewed. Astronomers’ having the ability to have better vision through the magnification of the telescope helps to determine the temperature, speed, and rotation in realms that are an extreme distance away. With magnification of planets and stars that was provided through telescopes astronomers where able to learn a great deal about the stars and their properties that each star possesses. The distance that the star is from earth can help to determine the brightness of the star. Stars appear brighter the closer that they are from the planet earth. Stars also appear brighter depending on the amount of energy that they are generating. Distance from earth and the amount of energy that the star is generating determine how bright a star appears to us on earth. Another aspect of a star that is taken into account when studying the stars is the size of the star itself. If the star is a very large object then it will appear brighter from earth then a star that is much smaller.......

...in about 150 BC He ranked the stars he could see in terms of their brightness, with 1 representing the brightest down to 6 representing the faintest. Modern astronomy has extended this system to stars brighter than Hipparchus' 1st magnitude stars and ones much, much fainter than 6. As it turns out, the eye senses brightness logarithmically, so each increase in 5 magnitudes corresponds to a decrease in brightness by a factor 100. The absolute magnitude is the magnitude the stars would have if viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs or some 32.6 light years. Obviously, Deneb is intrinsically very bright to make this list from its greater distance. Rigel, of nearly the same absolute magnitude, but closer, stands even higher in the list. Note that most of these distances are really nearby, on a cosmic scale, and that they are generally uncertain by at least 20%. All stars are variable to some extent; those which are visibly variable are marked with a "v". What are apparent and absolute magnitudes? Apparent is how bright the appear to us in the sky. The scale is somewhat arbitrary, as explained above, but a magnitude difference of 5 has been set to exactly a factor of 100 in intensity. Absolute magnitudes are how bright a star would appear from some standard distance, arbitrarily set as 10 parsecs or about 32.6 light years. Stars can be as bright as absolute magnitude -8 and as faint as absolute magnitude +16 or fainter. There are thus (a very few) stars more than 100 times brighter......

Ghidul Michelin

...Ghidul Michelin Pentru inceput putina istorie Michelin a publicat prima editie a a cestui ghid in 1900. Ghidul era menit sa vina in ajutorul automobilistilor care calatoreau in Franta. Continea informatii despre locurile de cazare, service-uri auto, furnizori de combustibil si desigur locuri unde se poate lua masa De la prima lansare si pana in 1920 acest ghid se distribuia in mod gratuit, dar apoi fratii Michelin au decis sa ceara bani pentru cumpararea acestui ghid - din dorinta, spuneau ei, de a castiga credibilitate. Notarea restaurantelor cu stele se face de la inceputul anilor '30. Initial ghidul avea culoare albastra, dar din 1931 si pana in prezent acesta are culoare rosie. La inceput ghidul era doar pentru Franta, dar apoi treptat au fost redactate astfel de carti si pentru alte tari europene. Anul trecut ghidul Michelin a fost editat pentru 11 tari europene, dar si in tari din Asia ori America. Ghiduri Michelin se publica separat si pentru marile orase cum ar fi Paris, Londra, Tokyo, New York, Las Vegas si altele. Orasul care are cele mai multe stele Michelin acordate restaurantelor este Tokyo. Restaurantele din capitala Japoneza totalizand peste 200 de stele. Tara cu cele mai multe restaurante de trei stele Michelin ramane insa Franta – avand 26 din totalul celor 81 de restaurante cu trei stele Michelin din lume. Aceasta distinctie acordandu-se extrem de rar.  Cum se acorda stelele si ce inseamna ele? Semnificatia acordata stelelor este urmatoarea :......

...Famous Stars in our Galaxy There are about 300 billion different stars in our galaxy. All of which contain different history, characteristics and general information. They each contain their own story of how they came about. Many of these stars are a part of a certain constellation and have been around for billions of years. Polaris is one the best known stars. (“How Do Stars Form,” n.d.) This star is known by many names like the North or Pole Star. Polaris has not always been the North Star and will not always remain the North Star. As centuries change the North Star will also do so. “A famous star called Thuban, in the constellation Draco the Dragon, was the North Star when the Egyptians built the pyramids.” (earthsky) Polaris will remain as the North Star for many more centuries to come. There was a time where people depended on their lives on this star to guide them. Fortunately, they used the North Star and the Big Dipper without getting lost. “. When slavery existed in the United States, slaves counted on the Big Dipper (which they called the Drinking Gourd) to show them the North Star, lighting their way to the free states and Canada.” (earthsky) Polaris is not hard to miss in the sky; it is the 50th brightest star and does not disappear. The reason this star will not disappear is due to the fact that the Earth’s axis is aligned pointing towards Polaris in the same direction North faces but will eventually shift over time. In comparison to the sun, this star is......

...Science of Stars Science of Stars This paper is about the science of the stars.   In this paper I will address how astronomers determine the composition, temperature, speed, and rotation rate of distant objects.   I will briefly explain the properties of stars in the H-R diagram from Chapter 15 of the course textbook “The Cosmic Perspective”.   I will also summarize the lifecycle of the Sun and identify where the Sun is in its lifecycle.   Studying Distant Objects Astronomers study light which comes from distant objects to determine its composition, temperature, speed, and rotation of distant objects.   This process is called spectroscopy.   Spectroscopy was first used to study celestial objects in 1863 by William Higgins.   By using this process he discovered the Sun and most stars are primarily composed of hydrogen gases. By using the spectroscopy technique it was discovered that different objects give off and absorb different spectrums of light. Where the object falls in the spectrum of light can be determined by examining its peak intensity at each wave length of light.   The light helps us to determine an objects composition, temperature, and rotation. There are three types of spectra used to evaluate light.   Objects which absorb light at different wavelengths are referred to as absorption spectrum. The intensity of light drops in objects which absorb light and therefore appear as dark lines on a rainbow of colors.   Objects such are stars, planets with......

...did not make much of an impact on his life. On the other hand, my father has completely changed my life. He has shaped the characteristics of his only child without even realizing it. My dad has taught me that just because he reflects a negative influence upon my life does not mean that I cannot succeed. I have turned his negative choices into lifelong advice. These experiences made me realize that I do not need to walk in his path of destruction or follow in his footsteps—I can create my own. Watching my father drink his life away has truly inspired me to never give up on my dreams and to never lose hope. As the famous American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "When it is dark enough, you can see the stars." Living with my father, I am able to see my stars shine brighter each and everyday. Even though my father has not always been dependable, his actions continue to have an everlasting impact on my life. I now know that I can overcome all of life's obstacles thanks to my father who was put on this earth to make me the best, strongest, and most successful person I can possibly be....

Michelin Case

...Michelin II – The treatment of rebates* Massimo Motta 1 European University Institute, Florence, and Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona 27 November 2006 Forthcoming in a book on EU competition case studies, edited by Bruce Lyons (Cambridge U.P.). The author has not been involved in this case, and his information about the case was only and exclusively drawn from public sources, such as the Commission Decision and the Court of First Instance’s Judgment. I am very grateful to Chiara Fumagalli and Liliane Karlinger for their comments on a previous draft. 1 * 1 1. Introduction In 2001, the European Commission found that the French firm Michelin had – via its various types of rebates - abused its dominant position in the French markets for new replacement tyres and retreaded tyres for heavy vehicles, and imposed a fine of EUR 19.76 million to Michelin. 2 Two years later, the Court of First Instance upheld the Commission’s Decision in its entirety. 3 In many respects, this case is exemplary of the strict formalistic approach followed in abuse of dominance cases by the European Commission and the Community Courts, which severely limit the possibility of dominant firms to resort to certain business practices, such as exclusive dealing, rebates, tying. Indeed, the EU case law has so far disregarded the actual effects of the allegedly abusive practices (the Commission does not need to prove that exclusionary effects have indeed taken place, nor does it need to show......

Michelin in China

...Michelin Overview. As a creator of modern day tyre, Michelin as a premium tyre brand has influenced the today’s world through innovation. Whether it be from developing materials for the space shuttle or shaping the way the globe moves through creation of modern day radial tyre, as a market leader Michelin has changed the world through leading the market with strong focus on the future. Market entry to China in 1989 was a right strategic move as predictions on market growth realized. Car and vehicle production increased significantly from 2002 in parallel with the demand of China’s emerging middle class. China’s tyre industry is growing exponentially in contrast to flattening US and European market, with expectation to be the biggest market in the next decade. With high growth and market potential Michelin are unable to succeed in the developing market as well as surrendered their leading market position in European and US market. Several factors can be attribute to unsuccessful market capitalization, however main one is inability to change with the market needs, and the idea that the western successful strategy can be duplicated with same results in Chinese market. Global Strategy Create synergy between Chinese and European market by divesting focus away from complex product portfolio and benefit from the economies of scales that can be produced in China. A European central office with focus on R&D can ensure competence to European customers, whilst simplifying......

In terms of industrial performance, it was among Michelin’s worst performing factories worldwide, as evidenced by its inferior products, high rejection rate, and alarmingly poor safety record relative to international standards. Turning the factory around and improving its industrial performance had become the mandate for successive plant managers. Ballarin felt that morale and disciplinary problems among Shanghai Michelin Warrior’s Chinese employees, especially the blue-collar workers, resulted from their lack of trust in the company’s management team. Making matters worse, the plant lacked a cohesive “leadership team” - a team of both foreign and Chinese managers with sufficient leadership capabilities to help him move forward. In addition, Michelin headquarters was pressing Ballarin to implement the Management System of Daily Production (MDP), designed to help improve the factory’s performance. Although Ballarin had extensive experience turning around and downsizing factories, he was facing unfamiliar challenges, including employees who spoke a......

Astronomers are equipped to know other sentient intelligent species regardless of how advanced and different. Visualizing little green men or other living creatures rather, fossil remains that might be evidence of life having once existed. If life out there was researching as humans have been they would find living and existing forms of life on earth. Humanity’s search has gone on for century’s expectation that extraterrestrial life exists. The Hubble Space Telescope has made discoveries as many as one hundred new planets out beyond our solar system orbiting stars in the way galaxy. Chances are when and if life is discovered elsewhere in the universe it may very not have a form or shape anything like human life. Remembering John F.

...In this paper I will explain how astronomers determine the composition, temperature, speed, and rotation rate of distant objects using various methods. I will explain the properties of stars. I will also summarize the complete lifecycle of the Sun and determine where the Sun is currently in its lifecycle.Light is a type of energy. Light behaves like a wave because it acts as a disturbance in the magnetic and electric field of space. Light can behave as a particle, because it sends all its energy to one place. A particle of light is called a photon. Photons can be absorbed into objects, bounce off objects, or fly through space. Scientists use the electromagnetic spectrum to organize and explain all types of electromagnetic energy that exist throughout the universe. Electromagnetic waves are organized in the electromagnetic spectrum according to their wavelength from the shortest, which are known as gamma rays to the longest which are known as radio waves. Electromagnetic energy is created by vibration. The vibration produces waves that carry energy. Each magnetic wave emits a different level of energy. These energies travel silently at the speed of light and produce a signature wave with a unique range of length, energy and frequency that scientists can identify and measure. One way that the energy of an electromagnetic wave is measured is by measuring its frequency. Frequency refers to the number of waves a vibration creates during a period of time. In general, the higher......
