Why use LORE?

Many people see ICT media as a burden because of the cost and practicality. As we know, ICT media is not only expensive because it requires internet connection, but also it is not quite practical because it requires computer to conduct the learning process. Most schools nowadays have covered their area with network, so the student can use the internet freely.

Using Facilities as Supply Chain Performance Driver

...their businesses from a private enterprise found by a German merchant, Johann Peter Bunge, to a world class firm that is quoted in New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). On its inception at Amsterdam, the firm was involved in grains merchandising and importation from the then Dutch colonies until 1859 when it relocated to Antwerp to become one of the global recognised company in commodity trading; with several operations and businesses in the North and South Americas with distribution capabilities that is spread across the world, Bunge identified facilities as a key driver of supply chain performance as it affects responsiveness and efficiency in market environment (Chopra & Meindl, pp. 64). As the company positioned to become the largest oilseed-processing firm in the globe through acquisition of Cereol in July, 2002; it was faced with the integration of Cereol into Bunge’s business and organizational model, and the dilemma of decentralization of its businesses. This project will focus on identifying the corporate strategy of Bunge while describing the strategy that was adopted in achieving it. CORPORATE STRATEGY At the upper level of the Company strategy, it was designed to make Bunge “the best integrated agribusiness and food company in the world”. It was further identified that logistics will play a key role in this integration process as it relates to transportation, using strategic facilities location as one of the major supply chain drivers, and adequate information......

Power Factor Correction Using Boost Converter

...capacitors that would turn on and off on twenty four hour cycles to show day to day comparison on power factor. Typically, the average power factor when the units where off was 87%. When the units were turned on the power factor was over 99%. To get a real understanding of positive impact power factor correction has on generation costs benefit analysis was carried out to see if such a project would make sense on mass. Four assumptions where used in this analysis: 1. a typical home has a 5kW demand 2. the cost of new generation is about $1,000,000 an MVA 3. a typical homes power factor is improved from 87% to 99% when 3.34 KVAR of capacitance is add 4. the cost of the Power Medix units is $450,000 installed With an example of 1000 homes each using the above information, the generation requirement would be 5.75MVA (5kW/.87PF x 1000). By installing capacitance at the residential level the requirement of the generator for the 1000 homes would now only be 5.05MVA (5kW/.99PF X 1000) or 700 KVA less. Therefore the cost to generate 700 KVA would be $700,000 (.700MVA X $1,000,000). The cost to supply and install capacitance at the residential level to free up the same amount of capacitance would be $450,000. The environment and health costs associated with the generation of electricity are also removed making the economics even stronger. The pilot project showed that the installation of capacitors at the residential level is a viable option in freeing up capacitance within the......

Network Effects and the Performance of Social Media Companies

...NETWORK EFFECT AND THE PERFORMANCE OF SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES Over the past year, the stock price for many social media companies did not fare well in the market. Companies like Zynga and Groupon saw their stock prices decrease over 70%, and even the best performing social media sites like Yelp and LinkedIn saw a decline in stock prices recently. This is no different for the largest social media company, Facebook, as its stock price drop almost 50% since its IPO in May ($19.21 as of 11/09/12). The optimisms on these companies’ growth potentials quickly faded away as earning reports indicated signs of slow growth one after another. Multiple factors contributed to these slow growths, and to understand them, we should first look at what drives growth. For social media companies, revenue growth is directly correlated with the user’s growth. This is because more users translate to more opportunities to sell, which in turn will attract more advertisers. Social media companies are unique in that the network effects heavily impacts the growth. As we learned in class, network effects mean that the more people using a particular product (the social media websites in this case), the higher the demand is for that product (until the stable equilibrium is reached). There are usually three equilibriums: a stable one at 0% usage, an unstable one at a low percentage usage, and another stable one at higher percentage usage. In the case of a social media site, once the usage percentage is......

Media Class

...Analysis of my own DVD cover, ‘Class On Grass’ I will be analysing my own DVD cover, ‘Class On Grass’. The genre of this film is a hybrid genre of sport and co medy. The stereotypical conventions of sport and comedy include football, running and, for comedy, laughter, of course, to attract a bigger, mainstream audience. My target audience are anybody over the age of 12, who are also interested in football or comedy. The protagonists of my film are England football stars Wayne Rooney and David Beckham. These two are immensely famous and are known all over the world. However, people only know the sporting side to them but not the personal side. This will engage the interest of my target audience because they will desire to see these two legends in this movie and also see the other side of them. Also, the connotations of the colours red, white and green represent the England flag and a football pitch. It symbolises football as a whole. The denotation is that it is Wayne Rooney and David Beckham; the connotations of these two players are skills and legends. This will entice the attention of my target audience, as they will recognise these two players and will want to see them in action. The demographic of this DVD cover is comedy and football fans, which are over the age of 12. They will enjoy watching their idols battle it out for the number 1 spot. They will also ache in laughter as this amusing rivalry is occurring. Firstly, the title is big, bold and clear, as is......

The digital age has transformed the way young people communicate, network, seek help, access information and learn. We must recognise that young people are now an online population and access is through a variety of means such as computers, TV and mobile phones.  The developments in the use of the electronic media have influenced all walks of life. Education is no exception to this. The use of computers and the internet for enhancing the quality of education by making learning more relevant to life has been seen as an ideal by educational institutions. The citizens of tomorrow who are our students now are going to live in the age of the electronic media. How are we preparing them for the same? Are we giving them technology based Education? Are we giving them exposure to the use of computers and the itnernet? Have we integrated the ICT into classroom processes? What are the efforts made by the department in this direction? What does policy say about ICT in Education? There are several such questions which we need to probe into. An understanding of these issues will enable us to use the ICT more meaningfully in Education. Information and Communication Technologies have recently gained groundswell of interest.

Using Social Media in My Business

...Using social media, and e-business to improve my small business is a very good idea, since most people use some sort of a social media daily. I could make my own website, or have my own “Facebook Page” because most people use Facebook more than any other social media. I could measure and know how many people on Facebook are interested in cake decorating, and by that I could communicate more with my customers to know their preferences and their opinions, and what products they prefer, so I can improve my business and increase my customer base. I could also illustrate my products (my cakes, and my cake decorating), and my services that I offer in my business, which will improve my customer service.
