.One "official" definition of consumer behavior is "The study of individuals, groups, or organizations and the processes they use to select, secure, use, and dispose of products, services, experiences, or ideas to satisfy needs and the impacts that these processes have on the consumer and society." Although it is not necessary to memorize this definition, it brings up some useful points: Behavior occurs either for the individual, or in the context of a group (e.g., friends influence what kinds of clothes a person wears) or an organization (people on the job make decisions as to which products the firm should use). Consumer behavior involves the use and disposal of products as well as the study of how they are purchased. Product use is often of great interest to the marketer, because this may influence how a product is best positioned or how we can encourage increased consumption. Since many environmental problems result from product disposal (e.g., motor oil being sent into sewage systems to save the recycling fee, or garbage piling up at landfills) this is also an area of interest. Consumer behavior involves services and ideas as well as tangible products. The impact of consumer behavior on society is also of relevance. For example, aggressive marketing of high fat foods, or aggressive marketing of easy credit, may have serious repercussions for the national health and economy.
There are four main applications of consumer behavior: The most obvious is for marketing strategy—i.e., for making better marketing campaigns. For example, by understanding that consumers are more receptive to food advertising when they are hungry, we learn to schedule snack advertisements late in the afternoon. By understanding that new products are usually initially adopted by a few consumers and only spread later, and then only gradually, to the rest of the population,…...

The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas

...The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas Samantha Clements ENG 125 February 18, 2013 The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas is to some people, a very disturbing story; but, it is nothing short of the truth when speaking of today’s society. Can a city really exist where there is nothing but happiness forevermore? No, it cannot, not without consequences; as shown in Le Guin’s story. Good vs. Evil is a definite underlying theme in The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas. The goodness and happiness in the city of Omelas comes only by the misery and sacrifice of an innocent child. Good cannot exist without evil. In this story, the child helps the people of Omelas measure their own happiness; because if the child in the cellar was not so wretched and disgusting, the residents of the city would not be able to appreciate what they have. They do not realize that things outside the city of Omelas are horrible because they cannot comprehend things like disgust, anger, and sickness until they see the child that which provides them with their lifestyle. The child in the cellar represents a way for the people of Omelas to come to terms with their perfection. Another theme that could be taken from this story is man vs. inner self. The city’s people live lives that are, to an extent, care and guilt free. The child’s misery is what the city’s happiness is based off of and the people of Omelas know this, because all children are shown the child at the proper age. The child represent’s......

...the former belief that humans originated from one place. The Leakey’s also uncovered the remains of more than 100 forms of now-extinct animal life in the Olduvai Gorge. The Leakey’s findings greatly expanded the theory that living organisms developed slowly over long periods of time. “1976 and 1977, Mary made what she considers the most exciting find of her career.” (A science Odyssey) Searching about thirty miles south of Olduvai Gorge, Mary and her new team discovered fossilized footprints. They found this footprint in what they think was once a wet sandy land. Around the archeologists were human-like footprints showing a small striding primate that walked on two feet. The discovered that the footprints seemed to match the fossils found in the same area, belonging to the species Australopithecus afarensis; Which was discovered by Mary and Louis a few years before. The prints fossilized some 3 to 3.5 million years ago, leaving evidence of the passage of what appeared to be an upright, bipedal hominid. The discovery required major changes in theories about human evolution because it showed that bipedalism may have occurred earlier than brain expansions. The changes in theories were needed to explain as to why some primates, such as human ancestors, evolved to walk on two feet. During this same time period, Mary and her team also found remains of 25 early hominids and an arrangement of 15 new animal species, one of the most important of fossil finds......

...Citation: Grych, J. H., & Fincham, F. D. (1993). Children's appraisals of marital conflict: Initial investigation of the cognitive-contextual framework. Child Development, 64,215 - 230. Hypothesis: Children's conflict appraisals guide their coping responses. In particular, deciding whether or not to intervene in the conflict will be strongly influenced by children's interpretations. For example, children who believe that they are at fault for causing a disagreement may then feel responsible for resolving the dispute, and thus attributions of self-blame are likely to lead to children's involvement in the conflict. Fearing for the safety of one parent also may promote intervention, whereas perceiving a high level of threat to the self may lead children to avoid intervening in a disagreement. Whether they involve themselves in a conflict also depends on children's coping efficacy, which in turn is shaped by prior experiences in the family. (a) children's appraisals are systematically related to specific dimensions (intensity and content) of marital conflict. 1. It was predicted that high-intensity conflict would be viewed as more likely to escalate than low-intensity conflict, and that child-related conflict would be perceived as more likely to involve the child than nonchild-related conflict. 2. Children who blame themselves for conflict are likely to elicit self-blame than non-child-related content. No specific hypotheses were made for the effect of conflict......

The Ones That Walk Away from Omelas

...The short story “The ones who walk away from Omelas” has many symbols in it. A lot of these symbols play a major role in contributing to theme of the story. The symbols are the summer solstice, Colors in the solstice, the birds (Swallows), the flute player, understanding, and of course the child in the cellar. These symbols make the story come together. Without these symbols the story would be incomplete, it would not make sense. When the reader actually takes the time to think about the symbolization in the story, it all comes together. All of the symbols that bring the story together shows that things are not always as perfect as they seem. In this story the author describes the perfect town, the perfect citizens, basically a utopian society. Underneath it all there is evil and things are not perfect. The description of the summer solstice at the beginning of the story symbolizes the light of our consciousness and that it shines more brightly when we are aware of it. The horses symbolize power, grace, beauty, strength, freedom, and nobility. These things could also describe the citizens of Omelas as well. The author describes the people in town in ways that make it seem like they are cheerful people. It talks about the children playing and the people celebrating during the ceremony. This makes it seem like they are happy people. “Their manes were braided with streamers of silver, gold, and green. They flared their nostrils and pranced and boasted to one another; they were......

“the Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”

...Justice? The short fiction “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas by Ursula K. Le Guin is a story on following of what is right, in order to be happy, one must essentially stand up for what is right, even if it means letting go of what one is used to. Omelas is a place where relaxation and joy reign, where there are no kings, slaves, or rules, and the citizens are happy and safe. The residents of Omelas save one child to be confined in a basement or small room. The confined child has no connection with any of the citizens except for the few who are brought to feed or see the child. The citizens of Omelas' happiness depend completely on the fact that this nameless child goes through suffering. “They all know that it has to be there. Some of them understand why, and some do not, but they all understand that their happiness, the beauty of their city...,depend wholly on this child's abominable misery.”(Le Guin) You can see the irony to show the utopian society cannot exist without the suffering of the child, its seen through a simple speaker, the fact that Omelas no longer exists, and the child suffering. The residents of Omelas have the choice to ignore the suffering of a child who is held captive in a cellar, or fight for what’s right and basically leave their homes. A nameless neglected child is kept in a room in Omelas only referred to as an “it” in the story. "three paces long and two wide.”(Le Guin) The room where the child is held, has no window, only a locked door......

The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas

...The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas Ursula K. Le Guin’s is an American writer, specializing in the areas of science fiction and fantasy. Guin’s work can be best described as imaginary and futuristic, always incorporating current events such as politics, race, or religion. In the short story The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas, Guin, depicts an unimaginable utopia, where everyone in the town is full of knowledge and the streets are filled people who are in a state of bliss. All of the fortune and abundance in this picture-perfect town depends on the misery of a malnourished child that is captive in a dungeon, sitting in his own filth. The conditions of keeping the City of Omelas alive and active are simple. If the child is rescued from the gruesome and frightful life he lives in, the City falls apart. If the child is left in his misery, the people of the City continue to live the lavish life they do. While the town recognizes the trouble in which the child is in, they choose to look the other way. We live in a similar world, by profiting off the misfortune of others in order to have the finer things in life Take animals for example, globally, animals are being skinned alive, beaten to death, and squeezed in cages, all for the sake of fur. Whether it comes from an animal on a fur farm or one who was trapped in the wild, every fur coat, and bit of trim caused a defenseless animal a horrifying death. Animals who are trapped in the wild can suffer for days from blood loss,......

Explication - the Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas

...Explication of “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” In “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”, Ursula K. Le Guin describes a glorious and glittering city free from fetters and chains, pristinely perfect and decorated with streamers, engulfed in sweet smelling air and enraptured by magical music. This city seems too good to be true, and in just a few simple sentences Le Guin validates the readers’ unrest with profound paradoxical storytelling, enchanting imagery and shape of story, and a semi-closure that leaves the reader longing for justice. Le Guin opens the story by describing a shiny utopia, where one must assume there is little to be desired from the city’s inhabitants. In fact, the reader is lead to believe that this city of Omelas is beautifully joyous and simple. Not long into the second paragraph of this story, however, the storyteller in Le Guin ruffles the readers’ happy forethought by spilling the inkwell of ambiguity across the paper. “They were not less complex than us …Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting.” (1316). Why would Le Guin throw a wrench in the spokes of the readers’ blissful thought processing? The fact that the people of Omelas have been described as more complex than meets the eye in conjunction with the statement that only pain and evil weave a web of intellect assures that the reader will begin to wonder what pain is lurking around the corner, what evil sits below the surface of the picture that has been painted thus far. Eager to......

...The Celtics would leave food at their doors to keep ghosts at bay and would wear costumes to “blend in” with the dead spirits. This is where we get our costumes today. They believed dressing up would honor the good spirits and keep away the bad ones. Sometime around the 8th century Pope Gregory the 4th merged All Saint’s day with the same day as Samhain and merged the traditions. One of the being children going door to door asking for baked cakes in return of praying for the other person’s dead family in purgatory. Another one was called “guising” wear people would wear masks and go door to door dancing and singing in return for food and wine. Does this sound a little familiar? In early America, Halloween wasn’t really celebrated because of the Puritan beliefs but with the influence of many Irish Immigrants coming to America the holiday started to become more mainstream. One of their traditions was carving faces into potatoes or turnips and leaving them on their doorstep to block out evil spirits. But, when the Irish came to America they saw that pumpkins were way better to carve a face into. And, this is how we got Jack o’ Lanterns. In conclusion, Halloween is a billion-dollar industry with deep dark roots involving the dead. Halloween is only one night so make sure to get spooky and celebrate this fun holiday!...

...An essential part of the hiring process is the interview. Potential new hires are usually aware of the importance of the interview, the significance of making a good first impression, and the need to come into an interview completely prepared. However, the interview is a two-way street, and unfortunately some managers/supervisors do not come into interviews with the same degree of preparedness and professionalism as the interviewee. "The One That Got Away" is about Dennis, the dining-room manager of a coffee shop within a large hotel. Dennis receives a drop-in application from Donna, a potential candidate for a waitress position. Instead of scheduling an interview for a more convenient time or asking Donna to please come back during the posted interview times, Dennis decides to interview Donna in the dining room on the spot. This case study fills the reader in on Dennis's biases against hiring married women with children prior to his interview with Donna. After Dennis gets one of his employees to temporarily take over his hosting duties he sits down with Donna at a table close to the door so he can keep an eye on things while he interviews her. He begins by looking over her application, but is interrupted numerous times by other employees and leaves the interview to attend to the problems. Although he is impressed by Donna's resume, he is never able to have a complete uninterrupted conversation with her. Dennis also asks inappropriate questions to Donna......

The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas Analysis

...The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” by Ursula K. Le Guin is a short story based on the pursuit of Righteousness; in order to be truly happy, one must stand up for what is right, even if it means letting go of the familiar. The residents of Omelas have the choice to ignore a suffering of a child who is held captive in a cellar, or fight for what’s right and essentially leave their homes. What would one prefer: allow an innocent child to suffer certain death, or rid themselves of their comfort and leave their precious city of Omelas? This short story begins in the setting of a festival, explaining the beauty and comfortable feeling of Omelas. It is located next to the sea, and has a harbor with boats, broad green meadows, and is surrounded by mountains. The setting begins with a beautiful summer morning; the sun is shining, the temperature is warm, there is a light breeze in the air… it all seems so serene. The people of Omelas are dancing in a procession, down the city streets toward the Green Fields to watch the race. Every resident of Omelas is a protagonist: the child playing the flute at the Festival of Summer, the old woman passing out flowers, the young riders on the horses waiting for the race to start, and the people who feed the child and kick it to make it stand. 
The child is locked in a cellar with very little bit of light coming through the cracks in the floor. There is one window, covered in cobwebs, across the room. The room has one door and it is always locked...
