How has the Internet affected and will continue to affect the United States Post Office operations?

The reason I chose this topic is because over the years we have seen a drastic shift our delivery methods and our delivery service. In recent years since the internet has become more of a vital player in our everyday lifestyle we have noticed a drastic shift in the delivery method with our mail system. Traditionally the US Post Office has served as our main anchor with our mail delivery services; however the internet provides an assortment of delivery methods. Question 1: Knowing the assortment of delivery methods the internet provide, what changes will the Post Office implement that allows the customers more flexibility and timeliness? Question 2: How will the Post office go about implementing these changes and what timeline do they expect to see results? I would use an academic essay version with a graph showing the financial comparison between the two.

Us Post September 11 Foreign Policy

...American populace awoke to the fear of an amorphous enemy Al Qaeda, a terrorist group led by Osama Bin Laden which had declared war on the US by taking the battle to the very shores of America. Over 3000 people were killed when on the 11th of September 2001 two hijacked planes were flown into the he World Trade Centre destroying the twin towers, a third struck the pentagon building while the fourth heading for the White House was brought Down by its hostage passengers who courageously laid down their lives for the nation. The attacks were unprecedented considering the fact that The United States had been attacked before by terrorist. In 1993 the World Trade Centre was bombed, in 1988 US embassy bombing took place in Kenya and Tanzania and in and  October 2000 the USS Cole Bombing took place in Yemen 1 just to mention a few. The attacks were considered an act of war and as such required decisive action which was clearly spelt out by President George W. Bush in his September 20th joint address to congress that same year. "Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated…And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be......

Office Superstore

...1) How would you classify the office superstore industry? Who are the competitors? What are the characteristics of this industry that lead to this conclusion? Today’s office superstore industry in the United States provides a convenient one-stop shopping experience for small businesses and individuals with home offices. The main competitors in the industry are Office Depot, Staples, and Office Max. All of them offer a variety of office supplies, as well as computers, office furniture and other business related items. Office Depot is the largest office superstore chain in the United States. Office Depot is first in total number of stores, first in average sales per store, first in average weekly store sales, first in total delivery sales and first in net earnings. Most importantly, Office Depot is the lowest price competitor among office superstore chains. Staples is the second-largest office superstore chain in the United States; and the third major player in the office superstore industry is OfficeMax. The intense competitive rivalry between Staples and Office Depot turned to be quite beneficial for consumers. Both competitors had to reduce prices, introduce innovative approaches to marketing, distribution and store layout and expand into new areas of the country, bringing increasing numbers of consumers the convenience of one-stop shopping at low prices. Office Depot has been the most aggressive and lowest-price competitor, in turn forcing Staples and OfficeMax to......

Post It in the Office or in the Bedroom

...Post It In the Office or In the Bedroom As time has gone by, advertisement agencies have evolved to appeal to the masses, but as the trends have changed, Aristotle’s three methods of persuasion Ethos, Logos, and Pathos have remained constant throughout the years. As Ethos appeals to the audience’s moral compass and character, Pathos appeals to their emotions, and Logos appeals the logic of the individual in order to jointly make an impression on each reader. These three methods of persuasion have remained throughout the evolution of advertising, and with the impact they allow advertisements to make, they will continue to be a constant aspect of advertising in the future. This Post It advertisement is a humorous appeal to the everyday reader. The average person, young or old, cannot wait for the weekend and the adventures that come along with it. This particular aspect of those adventures deal with the morning after releasing all of that weekday angst. That awkward moment when you wake up and want to know what happened, where it happened, and who with. Whether they had a one night stand or simply were too inebriated to remember a new friend’s name, everyone has had an awkward moment like this pictured above. The note attached to the woman’s forehead seems to be the key to avoid such an awkward situation and being a bad host. This advertisement implies that with Post It notes in hand, the reader will not have to worry about seeming like a bad person and that if unavoidable,...

...to meet their legal obligations. One such option is to close sites. The APWU is currently fighting to stop the closure of postal offices. Due to federal laws, the postal service finds themselves with their hands tied as it looks for possible solutions. I will discuss what events have led to the USPS situation, challenges and laws preventing progress, and finally discuss solutions to help the USPS minimize litigation. Prior to 1971 was handled by the Post Office Department, a cabinet department in the federal government. After the 1971 Postal Reorganization Act, the USPS ran like a business and relies on revenue from postage and does not rely on tax payer’s money. Two main factors have led to an estimated $6B annual loss in revenue. First, in 2006 Congress passed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, which mandated $5.5 billion per year be paid into an account to pre-fund retiree health-care 75 years into the future (Wikipedia; 2013) Secondly, the postal service has seen a drastic decline in people using the mail; People have found the internet a simple, quicker way to pay their bills as well as to communicate. Decline in usage means decline in revenue. Due to decline in revenue, the USPS must find alternative ways to make money and find ways to cut costs. One option is to cut Saturday service and close geographically isolated offices. The only problem, Federal Laws state the USPS must provide “All American’s postal services 6 days a week regardless of......

Proposed Marketing Plan 5.1 Target Segment 5.2 Positioning 5.3 Strategy 5.4 Conclusion 1. Market Analysis The repositionable notes market is made up of paper or tabs with adhesive, which allows the product to be stuck on surfaces and moved, without leaving residue. They are also known as ‘sticky notes’ and the idea was first conceived by 3M innovators. Post-it, the original inventor of ‘sticky notes’ have seen other competitors entering the market, yet having little success in toppling Post-it as the market leader. This is especially so in Singapore, where most of the brands shy away from competing head-on with Post-it, by differentiating their products. 1.1 Market Environment 1.1.1 Technology The ease of accessing wireless networks via Wireless@SG, since its introduction in 2006, has led to a surge in consumers switching to 3G phones. The implications of this on the repositionable notes market is that gadgets like phones are increasingly being used as a substitute in place of sticky notes, in reminding people of certain events or things. Instead of physically placing a post-it on the desk, people choose to set reminders on their phones, with alarms. People also choose to send short......

Post-Racism

...Layer 1 Layer 1 Julianne Layer English 122 February 16th, 2014 Professor Rogers Rough Draft 1 Do we live in a Post-Racial America? If you take a look at the way society has formed itself today compared to hundreds of years ago, you would say we do live in a post-racial society. The 15th Amendment was passed after the Civil War and it guaranteed blacks the right to vote. If this Amendment was not passed the way we live today wouldn’t be the way it is right now. We wouldn’t have a black President; black and whites would have to used separate bathrooms, water fountains, and be separated on the bus. More importantly, you walk down the street today and see white girls with black, Chinese, or Latino boyfriends. Post-racial America has fallen upon our generation and sooner or later, color won’t even be a thought to judge someone by. We live in a post-racial America because people who are racist are looked down upon in the world we live in today. The research provided will explain why we do live in a post-Racial America. America today has stereotypes for all different races. White people have money, black people are involved in crime, Asian people get straight A’s, and Latinos live off the system. Racism isn’t as harsh today as it was in the past. There are still racist people in the world and that will never change, but it has declined since 1865. During the Civil War, the North wanted to prevent the expansion of slavery into territories in the West that had not yet......

Microsoft Office Is an Office Suite

...Microsoft Office is an office suite of interrelated desktop applications, servers and services for the Microsoft Windows and Macintosh OS X operating systems, introduced by Microsoft in 1989. Initially a marketing term for a bundled set of applications, the first version of Office contained Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint. MICROSOFT WORD Microsoft Word is a word processor and was previously considered to be the main program in Office. Its proprietary DOC format is considered a de facto standard, although Word 2007 can also use a new XML-based, Microsoft Office-optimized format called .DOCX which has been standardized by Ecma International as Office Open XML. The first version of Word, released in the autumn of 1983, was for the MSDOS operating system and had the distinction of introducing the mouse to a broad population. Word 1.0 could be purchased with a bundled mouse, though none was required. Word has a built-in spell checker, thesaurus, dictionary, Office Assistant (a feature to assist users by way of an interactive animated character) and utilities for transferring, copy, pasting and editing text, such as PureText (a small utility that allows users to paste the contents of the software as plain text). "Normal.dot" is the master template from which all Word documents are created. It is one of the most important files in Microsoft Word. It determines the margin defaults as well as the layout of the text and font defaults. Although normal.dot......

...risk, and who is best able to manage it, needs to be carefully considered. Using data from government reports and case examples in the British public sector, this article explores aspects of procurement including, among other things, due diligence, public sector comparators, and the consequences of taking back the responsibility for delivering the service (taking back risk). PFI contracts can deliver better value for money than traditional methods of procurement if risks are transferred to the parties best able to handle them. The article concludes with a discussion of guidelines on generally accepted accounting practice and indicators for assessing risk. ∗ David Corner is Director of Corporate Policy in the United Kingdom National Audit Office.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the parent company of retail chain Walmart Canada, announced the measures in June and a report last week suggested some U.S. suppliers would seek legal recourse against what they deem to be unfair measures by the retailer. Wal-Mart told 10,000 suppliers to its U.S. stores about the fees and other changes to vendor agreements in mid-June, according to a Bloomberg report. The changes...

...Case Study # 1 – The Office Pina Meas University of La Verne The first mistake that John Mitchell made with the way he solved the problem of limited office spaces he was only seeing what he wanted to see. Mitchell was looking for information and interpreting them only in regards to his self-interest. Completely avoiding any information that would contradict his own. Mitchell is taking risk by making decisions with uncertainty focusing only on the goals he want to accomplish, but disregards the information that would show the alternatives and future event less than acceptable. Mitchell is making decisions base on assumptions even though the decision may be wrong as these decisions might produce bad outcome. With the possibility of failure being potentially high. Mitchell shows the characteristics of Ambiguity illustrated in Exhibit 9.1 from the textbook Management TWELFTH EDITION Richard L. Daft 2014 Vanderbilt University. The first sign shown by Mitchell was that he created an unclear issue with Krista Acklen with the intention of only the goal to be accomplished. Now not only are they limited to office spaces they are now creating conflict that would otherwise distract both parties from truly achieving their goals. The things that I would do different from Mitchell first, would be approaching Krista Acklen about the idea of sharing the limited office space that she is in charge of before deciding solely disregarding her inputs or thoughts. I would look......

African American unemployment was at 15.7% and Latino had a 9.5% unemployment rate while white males were at 13.8. I think our society like to think they reward these groups by offering social programs like WIC and welfare but many of these recipients become depended on the system and lose the will to do for themselves and in the long run society lose. The Federal Open Market Committee is likely to increase the federal funds and discount in the next 6 months, the Federal Reserve will raise the interest rates and this increase demand for US dollars so folks can buy US government securities bonds, which will be at a high interest rate.
