Guess Who Racial Relations
Guess Who is an American romantic comedy film about race relations and gender. The 2005 motion picture covers interracial romance of an African-American woman with a white, Caucasian man in a light and farcical manner. It is a loose remake of the 1967 serious and dramatic fashion film, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Race and ethnic relations are the social, political, and economic relations between races and ethnicities at all levels of society. This area encompasses racism, segregation, and other complex social processes between different racial and ethnic groups. The movie poster precisely portrays the idea and concept of the film. The door being guarded by the African American serious father, the bouquet of colorful flowers held by the white, Caucasian boyfriend, and the in love African-American daughter standing behind her boyfriend reflects one the most important details that illuminate in the movie poster.
The daughter of the house brings her white, Caucasian boyfriend home to meet her parents on the occasion of her parents’ 25th wedding anniversary. Her father dislikes him almost immediately because of his race. The movie poster reflects how he is guarding and controlling the door of the house symbolizing how he doesn’t want his daughter’s boyfriend to enter and become part of the family nor part of his daughter’s life because he belongs to a different race. It seems that he believes that if the white, Caucasian man enters the house, he is approving an interracial relation between his daughter and her white boyfriend. While the Caucasian boyfriend is entering the house with his daughter, the father’s facial expression seems of mistrust towards the white boyfriend, while his daughter is full of joy and excitement. Back then, black race people where mistreated because racism was controlling the world. White people believed they…...

Analytic Competitors

...head: Analytic Competitors Analytic Competitors Lev Mallinger Grand Canyon University BUS 606: Quantitative Methods August 24, 2012 “A wise man is strong and a knowledgeable man increases in his strength” (Proverbs 24:5) Introduction An analytic competitor may be described as an organization engaged in the committed activities of accumulating data, organizing and analyzing it into meaningful information, and following through with business decisions and activities informed by that information. An uninformed layperson may assume most businesses operate as an analytic competitor. This, however, may not be so. Many time business decisions are made through anecdotal or subjective non-quantitative means. An example of this might be a person wanting to open up a restaurant in town. He sees there are no 24 hour diners in the town, so he figures that since he likes diner food, other people must also and without competition he will have a good chance to succeed. It is very possible that he will succeed, but his chances of success might improve if he were to do some research beforehand. Perhaps he could gather data that informed him more about his potential customer base. How interested are they in diner food? Do the town’s people engage in night time activity that would have them out of the house during the night and early morning hours? Buy collecting data and analyzing it the restaurateur can better plan his offerings and hours of operations. While being an analytic......

Guess Who

...Herman Bautista 9/25/2013 Discussion Question Chapter 7 Process Flow Analysis 1. Provide the definition of a bottleneck. Why is it important to find the bottleneck? A bottleneck is a phenomenon where the performance or capacity of an entire system is limited by a single or limited number of components or resources. The term bottleneck is taken from the 'assets are water' metaphor. As water is poured out of a bottle, the rate of outflow is limited by the width of the conduit of exit, that is, bottleneck. By increasing the width of the bottleneck one can increase the rate at which the water flows out of the neck at different frequencies. Such limiting components of a system are sometimes referred to as bottleneck points. 2. Explain the difference between capacity, flow rate, and demand. Capacity: The capacity can be calculated for every station in a business process. It is always m / processing time with m being the number of resources being devoted to the station. If, for example, one worker needs 40 seconds to put together a sandwich, the capacity of this station is 1/40 per second or 1,5 sandwiches per minute. If there are two workers on the same station, the capacity increases to 2/40 per second or 3 sandwiches per minute. Flow rate: the definition needs to be augmented as the flow rate being the minimum of demand and process capacity. While the flow rate logically can never be higher than the capacity of the bottleneck, it can very well be lower,...

Hollister and Guess

...Hollister and Guess A. Location Factors Both of Hollister and Guess are located in Downtown Seattle. It is a community shopping center. B. Exterior Atmospherics It is not hard to find the parking there, but the parking is very expensive, about $10/hours. C. Interior Atmospherics An equally interesting fact about the two retailers is related to the store environment they offer. In general is a combination of many elements: music, temperature, odor, lighting, layout, decoration, even the sales associates they hire, and others, many of these elements influence shoppers’ behavior playing with their emotions, perceptions and physiological states. - Hollister is strongly targeting to teen-young adults (18-22 years old), who are trendy, good looking and with a lot of sex appealing. As soon as you enter the store a combination of stimulus attacks you, from the extremely loud music, the smell of their signature perfume all over the cloth, poor lighting, good looking sales associates and huge pictures of models all over the store, what are they trying to sell? Excitement, sex, fun, social spaces using lounge furniture, it’s all about being young, pretty and popular. For sure is not the most relaxing ambiance for parents, who most likely wait outside the store until the kids choose whatever they want to buy. But at the end of the day, it’s not about the parents; it’s about the teenagers having a place to be that person they are trying to be. - On the other hand, most of the......

...Spotlight on Making Your Company Data-Friendly Spotlight 64 Harvard Business Review December 2013   Artwork Chad Hagen Nonsensical Infographic No. 5 2009, digital Analytics 3.0 In the new era, big data will power consumer products and services. by Thomas H. Davenport T hose of us who have spent years studying “data smart” companies believe we’ve already lived through two eras in the use of analytics. We might call them BBD and ABD—before big data and after big data. Or, to use a naming convention matched to the topic, we might say that Analytics 1.0 was followed by Analytics 2.0. Generally speaking, 2.0 releases don’t just add some bells and whistles or make minor performance tweaks. In contrast to, say, a 1.1 version, a 2.0 product is a more substantial overhaul based on new priorities and technical possibilities. When large numbers of companies began capitalizing on vast new sources of unstructured, fast-moving information—big data—that was surely the case. Some of us now perceive another shift, fundamental and farreaching enough that we can fairly call it Analytics 3.0. Briefly, it is a new resolve to apply powerful data-gathering and analysis December 2013 Harvard Business Review 65 Spotlight on Making Your Company Data-Friendly methods not just to a company’s operations but also to its offerings—to embed data smartness into the products and services customers buy.

Business Analytics

...1.0 Introduction Business analytics (BA) is the practice of iterative, methodical exploration of an organization’s data with emphasis on statistical analysis.  It describes the skills, technologies, practices for continuous iterative exploration and investigation of past business performance to gain insight and drive business planning. Business analytics is used by companies committed to data-driven decision making.  It focuses on developing new insights and understanding of business performance based on data and statistical methods. BA is used to gain insights that inform business decisions and can be used to automate and optimize business processes. Business analytics makes extensive use of statistical analysis, including explanatory and predictive modeling, and fact-based management to drive decision making. It is therefore closely related to management science. Analytics may be used as input for human decisions or may drive fully automated decisions. Data-driven companies treat their data as a corporate asset and leverage it for competitive advantage. Successful business analytics depends on data quality, skilled analysts who understand the technologies and the business and an organizational commitment to data-driven decision making. Once the business goal of the analysis is determined, an analysis methodology is selected and data is acquired to support the analysis.  Data acquisition often involves extraction from one or more business systems, cleansing, and integration...

Analytic Essay

...Analytic Essay First Image: In this first image, to me, it looks like it is describing two soldiers who are getting ready to go off into battle. They are weary at first but get on the horses and ride off. Meanwhile, it looks as if the king is in the castle trying to pick out which style robe or fabric he would like to have next. Being shown to him by the seamster, with two behind him looking as well. Second Image: In the second image, I see a funeral service. There are people mourning on the part that is cut off. There are many people carrying the body away to where the burial would be. Usually they would carry it to the burial site and burn the bodies or they would be put in the ground. Then at the end it looks like a king sitting on his bed pointing at something. Third Image: In this third image, if you start from the left, it looks like on the top story, it is a king being asked to do something about a situation. In the bottom it looks like an elderly man is being taken care of because he is ill. Farther over, it looks like there are guards guarding a palace or church building with the royal family sitting inside and on the outside of the doors are people praising. Fourth Image: This whole image looks like it is men at work making boats. At the beginning, it looks like the men are giving commands. Father down they begin to chop down the trees for the boats. Then you see them carving the boat form out of the trees and then you see the boats being painted and......
