Earlier this week at the Gallipoli Peninsula, an area along the northeast coast of the Ottoman Empire, blood from Allied soldiers was spilled everywhere. The Gallipoli Campaign was the Allied forces attempt to control the sea route form Europe to Russia in the ongoing world war. Fighting began with a failed naval attack by the British and the French ships on the Dardanelles Straits in the late winter of 1915 and continued with a major land invasion of the Gallipoli Peninsula on April 25. The land invasion involved British and French troops as well as divisions of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Based on accounts from one of our reporters, who is currently located in the region near the battlegrounds, a very common fighting tactic that the two sides used was trench war fighting. Trenches are long narrow ditches that allowed soldiers to hide and seek protection. The trenches were far from perfect and many soldiers died from snipers’ bullets. In addition, these trenches had many bad living conditions, the worst of which included rat infestation. Rats were actually eating away at soldiers and their food, often leaving the soldiers starving. Also, at times, the temperatures in the trenches were too cold or too hot to bare, which also led to many deaths. Finally, after many hard fought months and a significant amount of casualties, the Allied forces decided to evacuate the Gallipoli Peninsula, ending the cruel battle that is a part of this harsh war. To this point in the developing war, the Allied defeat at Gallipoli has to be considered one of the greatest Ottoman…...

Fleurieu Peninsula

...The Fleurieu Food The Fleurieu Peninsula is approximately 30km south of Adelaide and is 2 963.0 km2 and produces $336.4 million dollars of products each year. A new and exciting development is emerging from this relatively small area, a growers’ paradise with rich fertile soils, temperate climate and reliable rainfall. The lifestyle here is governed by the rhythms of the seasons, the food is good, fresh and full of flavour. Regional foods, that are produced are made up of crops (wheat, barley oats) meat, (beef, pork, lamb, venison) livestock products (milk) agriculture (vegetables, orchard trees, fruit trees, grapes) poultry, and aquaculture. Almonds grown in Willunga are the finest in Australia, Olive oil being produced is now compared to Italy’s finest, and talented bakers produce real bread from long lost but recovered recipes, our cheese makers create authentic French-style goat’s curd and feta cheeses, or thick rich Jersey milk cream and traditional cheddars. This is why so many hospitality businesses are buying and using food obtained from the Fleurieu Peninsula. It also has to do with what is called the Carbon Footprint “The amount of carbon dioxide emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels by a particular person, or transport.” When Food is transported from interstate by semi-trailer or overseas by shipping the engine burns fossil fuel this creates CO2 (carbon dioxide) which is emitted into the atmosphere these greenhouse gas are then thought to......

Al Queda in the Arabia Peninsula

...Executive Summary After Osama Bin Laden was killed by a U.S. military raid in Pakistan, his aides have followed his footsteps and started their own branch of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). This organization was formed in January 2009 through a union of the Saudi and Yemeni branches of al-Qaeda (Masters, Jonathan. 2012). This fairly new group has the closest components and core, associated with Bin Laden’s former Al-Qaeda network. With the country of Yemen unstable, this organization looks to overtake the country with new recruits and spread their cause to its borders and beyond, from their stronghold in the southern part of the country. The AQAP’s primary goals are to try and bring down a United States airliner, spread Islamic Law, and continue to draw out a long fight forcing America to slow the economy by spending its money on security for the nation. Fighters arriving back to Yemen from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan bring their experiences and provide valuable training to the new recruits. Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, mastermind of bomb making, has almost made all of his devices come to life. By gathering intelligence and focus overtime, we know more about how potentially deadly and a threat this organization is to the United States. Current operations with drone surveillance and strikes are trying to take out this organization’s operatives. Imbedded agents are trying to gather information on the ground to try and foil the next plot. The United States has been...

Allied Battle Strategy

...ALLIED BATTLE STRATEGY The attack of Japan on the American fleet at Pearl Harbor resulted in the USA entry into the war in December, 1941. These were the culminating events that required the Allies forces to develop a strategy defeat of the Axis powers. The Allied forces had to work together in order to coordinate actions and win World War II. Hitler’s Germany presented the biggest threat for the Allies. The German army succeeded in its invasion into Europe and started its blitzkrieg strategy, and it seemed that Allies forces ware almost defeated by Hitler. The leaders of the USA, Britain, and Soviet Union had their own opinions on the strategy of the Allies against Axis powers. As Russia was under the threat of defeating, Josef Stalin insisted on Allies’ opening the second front in France as soon as possible. Churchill and Roosevelt claimed that they needed more time to prepare for the invasion. They were convinced that it was more effective to nibble at the edges of the German empire. Thus, they planned to bomb Germany from the air. Despite the different views, Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin had a common aim to win the war, and they came to a joint resolution. During the war, the leaders met several times in order to develop a strategy of the Allies forces victory. As it was planned, in the summer of 1942, Allied forces began its attack against Axis powers. Allies planes began bombing strategic targets in Germany. In the autumn of 1942, Allies began its operation in...

... Mitjans 1 From its initial existence R&D and innovative products had been the lifeline of CGC. When Callaway bought into the company his first initiative was to develop original products. Innovation and superior performing products are important in golf because equipment is thought to have a significant impact on player performance. Moreover, innovation was important because CGC had to be the technological leader to sell its products at premium price and continue to exceed customer expectations. The industry was also characterized as being driven by new product development because manufacturers were trying to bet each other to the next "best club" so CGC had to manufacture products that were differentiated from its own existing products as well as those of its competitors. The S2H2- introduced in 1988. This club redistributed weight to the striking area of the club head. The Big Bertha metal woods introduced in 1991. The innovative feature of Big Bertha was that it provided a larger "sweet spot". The oversized head made it easier to make contact with the ball so in turn made drivers more widely used by average golfers and revolutionized the way clubs were manufactured. The Great Big Bertha Titanium- launched in 1995. Titanium clubs increased the moment of inertia by moving material away from the club head center. Technologically superior products reinforced CGC's high quality brand and kept customers from switching brands.......

Peninsula: Ideological Issues Pertaining the Peninsula. 

...Peninsula: Ideological issues pertaining the peninsula. ! ! The Oxford English Dictionary describes Peninsula as “piece of land almost surrounded by water or projecting out into a body of water.” When we look towards the very eastern part of Asia, bordering China on the west and Russia, we find the infamous Korean Peninsula.The Korean peninsula consists of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on the northern part of the peninsula and the Republic of Korea (ROK) on the south, dividing on the 38th parallel. The peninsula split up in the 1950s during the Korean War, which involved the Communist North against Democratic South Korea. As the Korean War broke out on the peninsula in 1950, the United Nations Security Council recognised North Korea’s act as an invasion. Due to the fact that North Korea ignored the United Nations’ call for a ceasefire, the United States, United Kingdom and many other nations sent forces towards the peninsula in order to defend South Korea. Although a cease fire agreement have been signed in July 1953, North and South Korea are technically still at war to this very day. Since the Korean War divided one nation, whom share the same culture, values and language, they were separated because of two enormous political ideology differences, that the leaders believed in. We can safely say the Korean War was an “Ideology War”. The North being more towards socialism / communism (left wing) and the South being a firm believer in a......

History of World War !

...Ottoman Empire (the so-called Central Powers) against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Japan (the Allied Powers). The Allies were joined after 1917 by the United States. The four years of the Great War–as it was then known–saw unprecedented levels of carnage and destruction, thanks to grueling trench warfare and the introduction of modern weaponry such as machine guns, tanks and chemical weapons. By the time World War I ended in the defeat of the Central Powers in November 1918, more than 9 million soldiers had been killed and 21 million more wounded. WORLD WAR I BEGINS (1914) Though tensions had been brewing in Europe–and especially in the troubled Balkan region–for years before conflict actually broke out, the spark that ignited World War I was struck in Sarajevo, Bosnia, where Archduke Franz Ferdinand, nephew of Emperor Franz Josef and heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was shot to death along with his wife by the Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip on June 28, 1914. The assassination of Franz Ferdinand and Sophie set off a rapid chain of events: Austria-Hungary, like many in countries around the world, blamed the Serbian government for the attack and hoped to use the incident as justification for settling the question of Slavic nationalism once and for all. As Russia supported Serbia, Austria-Hungary waited to declare war until its leaders received assurances from German leader Kaiser Wilhelm II that Germany would support their cause in the event of a......

To What Extent Should Governments Protect Local Newspapers from the Forces of Globalization?

...Today’s present forces of globalization have had an unmistakable affect on the local newspapers. Larger companies in particular, are slowly overtaking local newspaper businesses in Canada. In 1990, 17.3% of daily newspapers were independently owned, whereas in 2005, the number had dropped to 1%. With such a drastic shift to the near monopoly of media conglomerates controlling the newspaper industry’s inevitable economic and political problems arise. Thus, governments should support local newspapers to the extent that it is economically reasonable. Resultantly, this action will lead to a diversified media economy, preservation of accurate local viewpoints, and the maintenance of ideological democracy in Canada without creating an unnecessary burden on the Canadian government. By supporting local newspapers with reasonable subventions, the competition between companies will increase. The existence of a free-market environment forces companies to produce quality newspapers instead of the stagnation brought upon by the “monopoly company mindset”. From an economic standpoint, the existence of multiple companies also allows for a leeway for failure. The bankruptcy of a media outlet that services a large portion of the population would be dangerous. Responsive government intervention to restore the company or substitute the newspaper would be an unnecessary cost. A further result would be the immediate limitation of the people’s “right to information”. As government is divided......

Allied Op

...CASE SUMMARY Allied Office Products was a corporation in business forms and specialty paper products, such as writing paper, envelopes, note cards, and greeting cards. In 1988, the company had expanded into business forms inventory management services that Allied believed it could offer value-added service to differentiate it from other business forms manufacturers. The forms manufacturing business was mature by 1988, and all competitors were seeking ways to generate sales growth. Allied embarked on a campaign to enroll its corporate clients in a program which it called “Total Forms Control” (TFC) and Allied had established a separate company within the business forms division to handle these accounts. The services provided under TFC included warehousing and distribution of forms as well as inventory control and forms usage reporting. Allied used a sophisticated computer systems network to monitor a client’s forms inventory, forms usage, and ordering activities. They provided this information to their clients via comprehensive yet simple-to-read management reports. Allied operated its forms manufacturing and TFC activities as separated profit centers. The transfer of product to TFC was at arm’s length with the transfer price set at fair market value. Although the company encouraged internal sourcing for customer orders, TFC sales people had the option of outsourcing product if necessary. The clients who participated in the forms management program were charged a service......

Allied Off

...The following is the case study completed in regards to Allied Office Products. Currently Allied Office Products charges customers a flat fee on product cost. This case study was performed in order to see if Allied Office Products should switch and implement the Sales Based Pricing System. “ABC” based service costs for the TFC business were calculated and Total Cost/Expense were found to be $1,550,000 Storage, $1,801,000 Requisition Handling, $ 761,000 Basic Warehouse Stock Selection, $734,000 “Pick-up” Activity, $612,000 Data entry, and $250,000 Desk Top Delivery for a total of $5,708,000. After finding the Total Cost we were able to divide that by Activity Driver Units to get the Activity Based Costs. Those costs were found to be $4.43 Storage, $5.81 Requisition Handling, $0.98 Basic Warehouse Stock Selection, $1.05 “Pick-up” Activity, $0.79 Data entry, and $29.41 Desk Top Delivery. Using the ABC Method we were able to calculate a Service Fee Amount of $8,486 for Customer A, and $23,330 for Customer B. Subtracting these totals from the Service Fee Total of $16100 found from the old method shows that Customer A was over charged $7,614 and Customer B was under charged $7,230. It would be fair then to adjust the Service Fee’s charged to each customer to the Totals found using the ABC method. Customer A was found to cost Allied Office Products less money to service, but they were also a smaller source of potential growth for the company. Customer B was found to use...

Maple Retreat

...The 3 key points you would take into account about the Maple company/business in order to define the “best possible candidate” are: 1. High-profile customers: Maple’s clients are high-income people that expect “a high level of professionalism from the staff”, and the course is expected to be in an “impeccable condition”. We believe that the first statement is more important for the job, as professional staff can be taught to have the course in an impeccable condition. Therefore, candidates have to be friendly to customers, good looking, have good manners and good attitude to learn. 2. Physical requirement and teamwork: Candidates have to be physically prepared for the job, and have to be able to start working at 5:30 am with a smile on their face, for which we need an active and fit person. Additionally, the job characteristics require team players. 3. Poor pay and seasonality: The job has a low pay in addition to being offered for only 8 months per year. Additionally, candidates must be happy with their positions in order to be nice to clients. This probably involves that the person you are looking for is someone who had an even worse job. The key aspect in choosing someone would be that the person does not have an attractive alternative job in terms of salary or job scope. Even if this candidate does not have optimal skills, we can train him and bring him to speed. Additionally, someone who, for example, is used to cleaning bathrooms, could be very happy working in a......
