“Having a Coke with You

is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yoghurt partly because of the fluorescent orange tulips around the birches partly because of the secrecy our smiles take on before people and statuary it is hard to believe when I’m with you that there can be anything as still as solemn as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right in front of it in the warm New York 4 o’clock light we are drifting back and forth between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles

and the portrait show seems to have no faces in it at all, just paint you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them

I look at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it’s in the Frick which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet so we can go together the first time and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism just as at home I never think of the Nude Descending a Staircase or at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo or Michelangelo that used to wow me and what good does all the research of the Impressionists do them when they never got the right person to stand near the tree when the sun sank or for that matter Marino Marini when he didn’t pick the rider as carefully as the horse

it seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I am telling you about it”

...Gujarat – 387440. Name of the President: Mr. Sanjiv Gupta Telephone: 02694 84386 / 87 / 77585 Website: http://www.coca-colaindia.com History Birth of a Refreshing Idea John Styth Pemberton first introduced the refreshing taste of Coca – Cola in Atlanta, Georgia. It was of 1886 when the pharmacist concocted a caramel – colored syrup in a three – legged brass kettle in his backyard. He first “distributed” the new product by carrying Coca – Cola in a jug down the street to Jacobs Pharmacy. For five cents, consumers could enjoy a glass of Coca – Cola at the soda fountain. Whether by design or accident, carbonated water was proclaimed “Delicious & Refreshing” Dr. Pemberton’s partner & bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson suggested the name & panned “Coca – Cola” in the unique flowing script that is famous worldwide today. Mr. Robinson thought ‘the two C’s would look well in advertising. In 1886 sales of Coca – Cola averages nine drinks per day. The first, Dr. Pemberton sold 25 gallon of syrup, shipped in bright red wooden kegs. Red has been a distinctive color associated with the no. 1 soft drink brand ever since. By 1891, Atlanta entrepreneur Asa G. Candler had acquired complete ownership of Coca – Cola business. Within four years, his merchandising flair helped expand consumption for $ 25 million. Robert W. Woodruff became president of The Coca – Cola Company in 1923, & his more than six decades of leadership took the......

...the U.S.? Before we discuss what the OECD Bribery Convention, I would like to give you a background on what exactly the OECD is. It is an organization where governments can compare policy experiences and seek answers to problems to make policies better. 34 democracies that encompass a market economy are made up of this organization and they work with one another to promote economic growth. The OECD is mainly a source for policy analysis to compare economic and social data. I went and explored the OECD website and discovered that most their research is available to us on their website. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Anti-Bribery Convention was signed by 36 countries in an attempt to combat corruption. (p.46) Prosecution was hindered unless there is a complaint; there are few regulators to search out the bribery incidents that occur in organizations. As stated in the text, bribery still continues in small places where it goes undetected yet with the hopes of having an honorable company to set in place processes to minimize the risk of prosecution including. “Having a global compliance system which shows that employees have understood the legal obligations regarding bribery and corruption in the countries they do business.” “Making employees aware of the penalties and ramifications for lone actions, such as criminal sanctions.” “Having a system in place to investigate any foreign agents and overseas partners who will be......

...strategies, looking into snack food business, whereas Coke remained focused on carbonated beverages, seeking to expand in international markets. PepsiCo looked mainly to its core product, carbonated fizzy drinks, but also diversified its product offerings. It bought Frito-Lay, the snack business in 1965, beginning its long history of diversification, to reduce its dependence on cola drinks. In 1993, it launched bottled water, Aquafina, and in 1998, it acquired Tropicana juice brands, placing it in a good position to benefit from rising consumer demand for healthier drinks. In 2001, it acquired Quaker Oats, the cereals and snacks business, following the collapse of Coke’s negotiations to buy the company, revealing divisions on strategy within Coke’s board. With Quaker Oats came Gatorade, the market leader in energy drinks, further diversifying PepsiCo’s portfolio of companies. Aquafina water and Gatorade drinks have seen rises in sales, helping PepsiCo to offset declining sales of sugary carbonated drinks, where consumers have become concerned about health and obesity. Coca-Cola has also belatedly launched new products diversifying from sugary fizzy drinks, having launched Minute Maid fruit juice to challenge Tropicana, Dasani to take on Aquafina, and Powerade to compete with Gatorade. PepsiCo’s diversification programme and it’s brand building expertise has made it the world’s fourth largest food and beverage company. Coke, relies on carbonated fizzy drinks for 80......

...benefits in the taste and size. This is all related to the product line, which is a term used to describe a group of products that are closely related because they function in a similar manner, are sold to the same customer groups, and marketed the same 10. Coca-Cola has developed several different flavours and sizes as mentioned above, but also several brands such as Sprite, Lift, Fanta and Diet Coke which increase the product line length, thus making full use of the market to maximise sales. Coca-Cola, however, also aims to create an image about the product. In this case they want it to be a social drink, one that you would have when having a good time. So when we go and buy Coca-Cola, we are not only relieving thirst but taking on an image and an idea. "We are going to a party ' we have to get Coca-Cola". Through promotion people now have the idea that it's only cool to drink Coca-Cola, and to be seen with anything else is cheap. One of their advertising campaigns highlighted the point of enjoying Coca-Cola, thus displaying how the product is not just about satisfying thirst, but also you need to enjoy drinking it. The product is convenient 11, that is - bought frequently, immediately, and with a minimum of comparison and buying effort 12. The appearance 13 of the product is eye catching with the bright red colour. It has a uniquely designed bottle shape that fits in your hand better, and creates a nicer ' more futuristic look.

Scarlett O’hara as a Complicated Heroine

...Seminar Paper on the Topic: Scarlett O’Hara as a Complicated Heroine INTRODUCTION Gone with the Wind, a popular romantic novel by Margaret Mitchell, differs from most Civil War novels by glorifying the South and demonizing the North. Other popular novels about the Civil War, such as Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage, are told from a Northern perspective and tend to exalt the North’s values. Mitchell’s novel is unique also for its portrayal of a strong-willed, independent woman, Scarlett O’Hara, who shares many characteristics with Mitchell herself. Mitchell frequently defied convention, divorcing her first husband and pursuing a career in journalism despite the disapproval of society. Gone with the Wind was published in 1936; ten years after Mitchell began writing it. A smash success upon publication, Gone with the Wind became—and remains even now—one of the best-selling novels of all time. It received the 1937 Pulitzer Prize. In the late 1930s a film version of the novel was planned, and David O. Selznick’s nationwide search for an actress to play Scarlett O’Hara captivated the nation’s attention. The resulting film starred Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable as Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, and it quickly became one of the most popular motion pictures of all time. My research paper discusses about the character of the protagonist. No doubt Scarlett O’Hara is a complicated heroine in the story. But there is nothing to say...

...his brother John S. Candler and Frank Robinson founded The Coca-Cola Company. Two years later they registered the trademark in the Registry Office of Industrial Property of the US. • In 1897, Coca-Cola first came out from the United States. Two years after the first agreement to bottle Coca-Cola in the entire United States was signed, marking the foundation of the business model of the company worldwide. In the early years of the twentieth century more than 400 bottled Coca-Cola plants in the United States, Panama, Canada and Cuba. • With soda reaching more and more people through different bottlers, a problem emerged: each bottler used a different bottles, and that created confusion among the public, which was different containers in each area. So a competition to opt for a single model of bottle was held in 1915. The winner was Alexander Samuelson and his proposal "contour bottle" which is next to the logo from Coca-Cola one of the most recognizable icons from the company a century later. • In the twenties, the first case for six bottles, which facilitated the transportation and delivery of the beverage, was created. Coca-Cola appears in Spain for the first time through imports. During the 40s were the American soldiers who helped to popularize the drink around the world while fighting in World War II. To facilitate its transport, a new, more durable and easy to transport package was created: can of Coca-Cola. In 1945 the Coke brand was registered, that has......

Animals, by Frank O'Hara

...In­Class Essay Based on “Animals” by Frank O’Hara    It’s the end of his days and Frank O’Hara is looking back on life. He’s okay in life now,  but he doesn’t need anything more; if only he had his lover.    Right off the bat a feeling of grandeur­lost is present. Frank seems to be pulling feelings  from a time in the past when he was in love; a time when he and his lover “were still first rate”  (Line 2). Now, “and the day came fat with an apple in it’s mouth” (Line 3) means that when  times were good, they were great. Apparently whoever Frank O’Hara was in love with brought  him a great matter of happiness and contentment. Only now does he realize how great the times  were. Speaking of time;  “It’s no use worrying about time  But we did have a few tricks up our sleeves  and turned sharp corners”      (Lines 4­6)  The imagery portrayed here is that of speed and living fast. No time was wasted and they were  living in the moment. They lived life on the edge with reckless abandon. It was not without some  sense of confidence though, as they “did have a few tricks up our sleeves” (Line 5). Meaning no  matter what, they would be fine, and that was how it was to be.   And with this reckless abandon came a sense of pride as well, “the whole pasture looked  like our meal” (Line 7); their eyes were wide with anticipation of the bright future they had  ahead of them. Two people in love, living in the fast lane, “we didn’t need speedometers”(Line  8) goes ......

What evidence do you see from the companies’ results that indicate how well they made investment decisions (capital budgeting). A company can make poor investment decisions and still remain profitable, but only for a time. A company cannot continually make poor investment decisions and remain profitable forever. When looking at the Coke vs Pepsi case study, we find that Doug Ivester, then CEO of Coke, made a bad investment decision when he chose to increase the rate charged for syrup to franchisers. As a result, bottlers raised prices to improve profitability, and in turn there was a decrease in overall sales volume. During the time Ivester was CEO, the net income for Coke fell 41% and he ended up without a job. Had this been a trend that continued, Coke would have been out of business, but they rebounded and remain profitable. This example shows that a company can make a bad decision and continue to be profitable in the long run. But, repeat bad investment decisions and a company will go broke.

...Arman Ibric CC: Coke Zero DATE: July 1,2012 SUBJECT: Case Assignment The Coca-Cola Company has opened up many different types of different Coke drinks so that each can appeal to a certain target market. Types such as Diet Coke which at first was meant to appeal to younger women you were trying to lose weight. But recently it has been used by men 18-34 as well who were trying to stay more on the healthy side and who were going away from the normal Coke.

This is because there is such a wide gap between males 18-34 years of age and Coke has yet......

O'Hara Lunch Poems

... Ave Maria Frank O'Hara's poem entitled "Ave Maria" is an exhortation to American mothers to allow their children to go and watch movies unescorted, as a way of broadening the latter's experiences. Specifically, the poem is implying that children should be allowed to go to the movies, as a way to enable them to explore their sexuality and experience sex in youth. The choice of the title "Ave Maria" presents an intriguing use because as most people may know, it refers to the Catholic Christian prayer "Hail Mary" that asks the intercession of the Virgin Mother, during a faithful's lifetime and the last hour before one’s death. In the poem's text, the first line apparently indicates who is being addressed, the "Mothers of America." However, since "Ave Maria" (Hail Mary) is a prayer of intercession, the poem could be construed as asking mothers to intercede before the fathers or at least reason with the fathers, in favor of allowing children to watch movies. The title is also suggestive of sexual encounters based on how "Heaven" is a recognized euphemism for the rapture or high feeling that one experiences while engaging in sexual acts. "Oh mothers you will have the little tykes/so happy because if nobody does pick them up in the movies/they won't know the difference.... The two lines indicate that O’Hara is clearly giving outright sexual advice to the mothers. "Hey may even be grateful to you/for their first sexual experience.../which only cost you a quarter/with a......

Along with all these different brands that Coke carries it also has different products that are made to target different market segments. Diet Coke is one of them that was made to targeted women and fall under gender segmentation. Coke Zero is another which was made to target younger men and fall under both the gender and age segmentation. Diet Coke Plus was made to targeted those that were health conscious and it's a lifestyle psycho-segmentation. Coca-Cola Black was made to targeted older men that have higher income this falls under the gender and income segmentation. In the coke industry there are products that are going to bring new customers rather than keeping the old. An example of this is diet coke plus will lose customers to as coke zero because it has the same benefits but reached the target market intended for diet coke plus. Another example is coca-cola classic because it would suffer age discrimination and coke zero has the exact taste as the original. All of the other products have a different target market that is going to keep them retaining customers. Promoters of Coke Zero have used hidden camera’s as a way reach target market. The hidden-camera videos that the promoters used in Coke Zero were an effective way to reach its target market because it presented Coke Zero to be the......
