Wal-Mart and Its Effect on the Local Economy Worldwide

As of the most recent list of Fortune 500 companies, Wal-Mart is ranked number one having more than half of a trillion dollars in revenue. (CNN Money, 2013) However, their employees struggle to make ends meet yet The Walton Family only donated 2% of their net worth. However, Bill Gates donated 48% and Warren Buffet donated close to 78% ("Scary (but True) Facts About Wal-Mart", 2010) humbling numbers compared to the Walton’s small contribution. With an immense quantity of the populous buying from Wal-Mart and super retailers it is making it tough for just not just small and large city small business; it is also has it effects worldwide.
Sanghui Yoo and her husband from Altadena, California are experiencing the effects of the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market opening around the corner from their small family liquor store. The Yoo family is worried about Wal-Mart underselling them and ultimately making them close. A spokes- woman for Wal-Mart stated “This store will serve as a choice I think people will be pleasantly surprised by how much Wal-Mart can save them money.” (Lee, 2012) Rachael Wall said in the article. It comes as no surprise; people will go where it will save them the most money, which is plausible why Sanghui Yoo and their other fellow local business owners are worried. However, in their defense the area was surviving fine without the Neighborhood Market. The opening seems unfair for the local business owners and several can empathize with their struggle. Although Altadena may have a smaller population it can affect the larger cities across the country. Chicago is ranked as the number three largest city in the United States, and even they are not exempt from feeling the wrath of the mega-retailers. Another article stated “The opening of a Wal-Mart on…...

...Non-Functional Testing and Security Testing in Mobile Application Development Abstract Smart-phones have become part of human life. As smartphones become more powerful and usage rises, Smartphone makers have a much wider range of innovation possibilities than their PC counterparts. The personal nature and pocket size of mobile phones and their potential offer a wide scope for developing distinctive handset models targeted at a specific segment of the smart-phone market. The mobile application market’s growth is driven by the widespread push of advanced handset capabilities by the mobile industry and the increasingly-connected global consumer base. Progress of network technologies, restructuring of revenue-sharing pattern, lowering of mobile data usage cost, growing adoption of smart phones, and increase in application usability have contributed to the growth of mobile application adoption globally. This trend has led to substantial surge in the dependence and usage of the mobile Internet, specifically mobile applications. Mobile Application Development is the method by which application software is produced for low power handling devices, mobile devices, and other small digital equipment. As this technological development continues to gain momentum, it's quickly turning into one of the most powerful industries in the world. Majority of the mobile application testers tend to focus more on testing the product against client requirements – Functional testing and pay......

...Testing. Source from others KANSAS CITY ZEPHYRS BASEBALL CLUB: A BASEBALL ACCOUNTING DISPUTE This case is used to illustrate some basic accounting issues in a controversial setting. The controversy arose because the baseball team owners and the players association were engaged in collective bargaining negotiations and the outcome of those negotiations depended on the parties’ agreeing on the true profitability of the baseball business. The case describes 3 areas in which the accounting is being disputed: Roster depreciation; Player compensation; Transfer pricing of related party operations (stadium costs); 1. Roster Depreciation The owners recognize depreciation of a value placed on the player roster at the time the baseball club was purchased apparently just because tax rules allowed them to do so. Tax rules allow this value to be set arbitrarily at a maximum of 50% of the purchase price (It would be foolish to set it at a lower value for tax purposes). The depreciation is spread linearly over six years and comes to $2m per year. The players do not feel that any roster depreciation should be shown: if anything, they argue, the roster appreciates as the players become more experienced. The economic truth is that player rosters - baseball clubs’ most valuable assets - appreciate and depreciate over time: good scouting, trades, and coaching increase the roster value. In contrast, injuries and retirements decrease it. The roaster should hence......

...Impact of Inspection and Testing on Quality of Software; a Comparison Naila Bashir Awan, Tooba Ahmad and Mehreen Ahmed KEYWORDS: Quality Assurance, Software testing, Inspection, testing. comparison. The methodology being used is empirical research. This research paper will answer the following questions. • • Are both testing and inspection necessary for software quality assurance? Which Technique (testing or inspection) is better for checking the quality of code? Abstract---Developing software systems involves a series of activities where there are many possibilities to make errors. Thus, software development should always be accompanied by quality assurance (QA) activities. Inspection and testing are two common QA activities, which are often used in different phases of the software development life cycle (SDLC). This research addresses the basic question that which technique is better and are both necessary. But we come to know that both testing and inspection are important defect removal activities and equally effective. 1. INTRODUCTION Quality means the degree to which a system, component, or process meets customer or user needs or expectations. [1] Quality Assurance is set of activities designed to evaluate the process by which products are developed or manufactured. [3]All major software developers stress software quality assurance and try to remove bugs before release. It’s easy to review code but fail to notice significant errors. Thus, software development......

...stress it allows for the mental health/behavioral health practitioner to effectively assess the progression of the treatment being used on the patient. Though the DASS can be used in an occupational setting, it can be detrimental to an individuals career path due to an employer having record of an individuals mental health on file which could cause an individual to lose their job due to an employer viewing an individual as being a risk. Though the DASS can have negative impact on an individual career, it can also be beneficial as well especially if the profession that it is being used in is a high stress job. Jobs such as those found in the various branches of the military or other government positions may require an individual to go through testing of their mental health so as to assess whether or not the individual would be capable of effectively performing their duties since an individual whom has high levels of depression, anxiety, and/or stress can prove to be hazards on the job. In an academic setting, the DASS can be effective when used with children so as to be able to see if a child is capable of handling the requirements of their educational course or if they should be given extra attention so as to better absorb the materials in which they are to learn....

The departments are dispersed and located in different time zones. Effective channels 95 for collaboration include the use of Wikis, blogs, text messages, occasional emails and reports. 96 Teleconferences and videoconferences are options but bandwidth may hinder videoconferences. 97 The blogs and wikis permit asynchronous discussions.

The process should be 99 considered when setting deadlines for completion. Usability testing after the writing phase will 100 help identify areas needing a rewrite.

Success in writing installation instructions that meet the needs of 103 the audience and enable installation of the software is determined by a drop in calls to Technical 104 Support, good reviews posted online and through the use of surveys and questionnaires. 105 The collaborative team should determine the division’s goals prior to creating the 106 installation instructions to meet the needs of the audience.
