Circuit City vs. Canon with Diversification

...business decisions of diversification. The first company, Circuit City, was unsuccessful at broadening their business, and eventually had to shut down the business. The other company, Canon, was successful at broadening their brand and scope of the business. This paper will compare and contrast their businesses, outcomes and reasons for the differences. Circuit City was established by Samuel S. Wurtzel in 1949 as the Wards Co. that sold Televisions and home appliances. Over the course of time, it expanded into a national retail powerhouse that rebranded itself Circuit City in 1984. When the store was still operating, it was the “nation’s second-largest consumer electronic retailer” (Mui, 2008, p.D1). When it closed in January 16, 2009, it had 567 stores to close and 34,000 employees out of work. (Haynes, 2009, p.D1). In 2007, the company “posted nearly $320 million in losses, its second consecutive annual shortfall. (Mui, 2008, p.D.1) In 2008, the companies “most recent quarterly showed that it had assets of $3.4 billion with $2.3 billion in liabilities.” (Mui, 2008, p.D1). Circuit City did not have much of an international presence, but it did have stores in Canada which did not account for much of its business. In the economic downturn, “Circuit City neglected to improve its web presence, just as other on-line retailers like Amazon.com were hitting their stride” (Hamilton, 2008). The Circuit City brand was purchased by Systemax, which uses the brand to sell......

White Collar Crime vs Blue Collar Crime

...White Collar crime VS. Blue collar crime A big problem in today society is white collar crime and blue collar crime. The big question we ask in society is which one is a bigger problem. In my paper I will go into detail with each one and distinguish them between Micro sociology and Macro sociology. The big question being asked is what is white collar crime identified as and blue collar crime? White collar crime is defined as “illegal or unethical acts that violate fiduciary responsibility of public trust committed by an individual or organization, usually during the course of legitimate occupational activity, by persons of high or respectable social status for personal or organizational gain” (Helmkamp, Ball, & Townsend,1996, p. 351). (Cullen, Clark, Mather’s, & Cullen, 1983; Grabosky et al., 1987; Hauber, Toonvliet, & Willemse, 1988; Holland, 1995) felt back then that white collar crimes get neglected. There are only 24 out of 140 crimes that are categorized to be white collar crimes. Some examples that are white collar crimes are (i.e., price fixing, defrauding customers, and income tax fraud). Benson and Cullen (1998) examined the perceptions of white-collar crime seriousness from local prosecutors. The prosecutors did not typically perceive such crimes as serious; it was stated that, less than 4% of urban prosecutors considered corporate crime a “very serious” problem and about 50% did not regard it as serious at all. When crimes like this are committed I feel that......

City vs Third World

...The difference between a city in the U.S. and a village in a third world country are night and day. Many of the advancements that we carry here in the U.S. lack in third world villages. For example, advancements of technology, luxuries, environment, and even day to day social life. One might be lead to believe that the city life is better than village life. However there are so many advantages and disadvantages in city life and village life. City life is more comfortable and offer more opportunities for people to progress. There are a lot of facilities for people in the city and they have more opportunities to establish monetary funds for themselves. Children living in the city can get a higher education, because there are better overall schools in a city as oppose to a village. When a person becomes sick there are both public and private hospitals to recieve treatment from. People in the city have better transport facilities compared to a village. In the city there is electricity, highway, communication, telecommunication, plumbing and sewage. All of these things make a comfortable and enjoyable life for people living in the city. Although living in the city has many advantages there are a few disadvantages as well. Living in the city can be very costly and overpopulated, which can leave you feeling clustered. The environment is polluted with dust, smoke, garbage and dioxide gases from factories. The crime rate is substantial as oppose to the village therefore, many thefts...

Faragher vs. City of Boca

...in 1992, after resigning her position as a lifeguard brought action against the City of Boca Raton. She stated that both her supervisors, Bill Terry and David Silverman, had created a "sexually hostile environment" at work repeatedly subjecting Faragher and other female lifeguards to "uninvited and offensive touching," by making lewd remarks, and by speaking of women in offensive terms. Faragher was not the only woman being treated this way. Nancy Ewanchew had brought it to the City's Personal Director's attention hoping to put an end to the way they were being treated, however the problem continued. That is when Faragher then decided to take her case to court. She claimed that this behavior constituted discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Right Act of 1964. The District Court concluded that her supervisors' conduct was sufficiently serious to alter the conditions of her employment and constitute an abusive working environment. Faragher stated that in many ways the agency relationship had facilitated Terry and Silverman in creating a sexually hostile work environment such as abusing their power to keep the workers in line while making offensive remarks. The Court held that the city could be held liable. It made that determination because of three factors. First, it considered that the harrassment was prevalent and that the city should have been aware of it. Second, the city was liable under traditional agency principles as the defendants were......

City vs Country Living

...City vs. Country Living Tired of waking up to gunshots or sirens at 3 A.M? Does the thought of crickets being the loudest noise around sound appealing? Big city living and country living both offer a place to lay down roots and make a house a home. It has always been a controversial decision when determining whether country living or city living is best, it is all based on what people’s perception of living is. But, both would require a particular type of person due to the dramatic differences each has. The difference between the city and country are; surroundings, entertainment, transportation, employment, and education. The city offers a variety of buildings of all different shapes, and sizes. The bright lights at night can be real pleasing to the eyes such as the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington or the Empire State Building in New York City, New York. People travel from all over the world to see these kinds of structures. Which leads us to the wonderful 5 mile an hour bumper-to-bumper traffic, and beautiful brownish/yellow tinted skies. There are houses as far as the eyes can see; they are so close that best friends can basically jump from rooftop to rooftop. Where as in the country, there might not be another house or car for miles. Trees or large open fields usually surround the houses; this may be the main reason for the fresh, crisp clean air. People can lie out at night and count the stars, since there are no distractions from buildings or bright lights.......

Cost Accounting - Tradittional vs Abc

...solution to such anomalies, many organisations have adopted a separate cost-allocation methodology called Activity Based Costing (ABC). WHAT IS ACTIVITY BASED COSTING? In contrast to traditional cost-accounting framework, ABC framework first accumulate overhead costs for each organizational activity, and then assign the costs of the activities to the products, services, or customers (cost objects) causing that activity. As we can imagine, the most critical aspect of ABC is activity analysis. Activity analysis is the processes of discovering appropriate measures and resources (cost drivers) and their influence on the costs of creating a product or providing a service. Activity analysis provides the solution to correct the challenges inherent to traditional cost-accounting framework. TRADITIONAL COST-ACCOUNTING FRAMEWORK - VERSUS - ABC Traditional Cost Accounting | ABC | Basic definition wise | Mostly allocate costs based on single-volume measures such as direct-labour hours, direct-labour costs, or machine hours | ABC framework are not limited by the rules of financial reporting requirements | While using a single volume measure as an overall cost aspect seldom meets the cause-and-effect criteria desired in cost allocation, it provides a comparatively easier, much convenient means of complying with financial reporting requirements | ABC framework have the flexibility to provide special adhoc reports to facilitate management decisions on costs of activities......

Analysis of Smith vs. the City of Jackson

...case of Smith vs. The City of Jackson is based on age discrimination and the interpretation that companies use to circumvent the process. The City of Jackson, Mississippi contends that Mr. Smith could no longer meet the physical requirements for the job that he held. Mr. Smith argues that the standards that were used to dismiss him from his job are not relevant to his duties. Mr. Smith is supported in this argument by the Trial lawyers for Public Justice (TLPJ) which contend that the city of Jackson, Mississippi used facially neutral practices to dismiss Mr. Smith. Facially neutral practices are described as stringent requirements; i.e. physical requirements, test scores, or special talents placed upon a job or task that are non age related. One might argue that many jobs require certain physical and mental attributes to perform the task, which in many cases may be true. But the legal argument here is that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) has addressed this discrimination by declaring the Reasonable Factors Other than Age (RFOA). The (RFOA) recognizes that companies and institutions use discriminatory test and physical requirements to circumvent age discrimination. In addressing (RFOA) it becomes incumbent upon the employer to prove that any test or physical conditions placed on a task are pertinent to that task. This action will not only protect the employer but the employee as well from future discrimination cases. The case of Smith vs. The City of......

Country Living vs City Living

...COUNTRY HOOK: Do people typically prefer to live in the country rather than in the city? William Penn once said, “The country life is to be preferred; for there we see the works of God; but in cities, we see little else but the works of men.” INTRODUCE THE ISSUE: Even after considering all of the negative aspects of living in the city, such as the crime rate, pollution, traffic, and the noise level, city life still offers a lot of daily conveniences. Some conveniences that city life offers are public transportation, a variety of stores, and restaurants, and lots of places to live and work. However; people who have lived in both the city and the country, know that country living is better than city living. STATE POSITION CLEARLY: The environment of a rural life style, the peace, and quiet, the beauty of nature, and the calming effect that it has on one’s mind and body, is the reason that people prefer living in the country rather than in the city. TRANSITION TO ESSAY BODY (THESIS): People prefer to live in the country because there are many advantages, and simple pleasures that can only be attained by living there. PRO REASON 1: There are no traffic jams in the country, and people need not travel to experience the wonders that nature has to offer. SUPPORTING EVIDENCE: There is no traffic in the country, so typically, the sound of passing cars, and trucks is not heard as frequent as in the city. The load noise of the sirens from fire trucks, police cars, and......

Abc Commercial Lengths vs Mtv

...Business 206 August 16, 2011 Statistics project ABC Commercial lengths vs MTV The goal of this study was to test the hypothesis; MTV commercials are longer than ABC commercials. To do this the study was designed to be Quantitative: consist of numeric measurements and counts. Our study is measured in seconds so it was Quantitative. The level of measurement used Ratio; because in this study a zero entry is an inherent zero and not just a place on a scale. You cannot for example have -5 seconds of commercials; the lowest amount would be zero which would mean there were no commercials. The way the study was performed was Observational study: the researcher observes and measures characteristics of a part of a population but does not change existing conditions. Our study is observational because during the course of the research only observatory measurements were taken. The persons doing the study did not in any form interact with subject to change the result. The sampling technique was random sample, a sample in which every member of a population has an equal chance of being selected. The study is a random sample because the study did not test a specific time frame. There are no apparent confounding variables, however if all measurements were taken in the same timeframe, they may not show the whole picture. For example a show that has a more loyal following may be able to have longer commercials knowing the audience will still be there when it’s over. To process the data,......

City vs Rural

...Candace Thackeray C. Demo ENG 100 06/08/2015 City vs. Rural Many people have debates on whether it’s better to live in a city or a rural environment. There are many differences, advantages and disadvantages of the two. It solely depends on the individuals work lifestyle. Cities have a much higher success rate for businesses. Here are some advantages of living in a city and some disadvantages of living in a rural environment. There is a big difference in means of transportation between city life and rural life. Cities have bus and train routes for people to utilize for commuting around the city, the routes also run through surrounding cities as well, making it easier to travel further when the individual has no vehicle or wants to save on gas. The cities transportation system operates throughout the day and night, making it more reliable to those traveling with extended or flexible schedules. In a rural area; homes, businesses, and shopping areas are further apart, so it’s likely to have a huge lack in means of transportation other than one’s own vehicle. Cities, having larger populations, an abundance of businesses and apartment buildings, makes it easier to find a neighbor or someone that resides relatively close for carpooling. With the distance between residences, businesses, shopping centers and the smaller population in rural areas, finding someone to car pool with may be difficult. With cities being so compacted, people have shorter distances to......
