Hyundai Essay

...MKT 4468 Hyundai Trip report I have a trip to Hyundai Motor factory with class 2 days ago, it is the first time I have been at a motor factory and I have to say that this trip has changed my view regarding this Korean Motor manufacturer pretty much When I got there, I had an opportunity to get inside each Hyundai model like Equus, Genesis, Elantra and Sonata, the feeling was so great. I always thought Korean auto manufacturer like Hyundai or KIA comes with decent quality as well as base-interior , and that was the reason why I had changed my mind : The luxury of Equus was not less than 7-series from BMW at all, but what made me impressed the most was the price: you can get a Fully Loaded Equus for only $61,000 compared to $95,000 for a BASE edition from BMW or Mercedes, it clearly beat them all . And when my professor said Equus had been used for Korean prime minister, I had no any reason to doubt the quality of this model Beside the luxury model such as Equus or Genesis, my thought had been changed either with compact sedan models, were 2014 Sonata and Elantra. One of my friend owned a 2005 Sonata, and he had a bunch of mechanic problem with it since he bought, I kept in mind that Hyundai cars did not come with quality. BUT, once again, my thought had been changed when I got inside model 2014 Sonata, I had to say that I was trully impressived about the interior as well as equiment which came with it. Another thing I had to admit was that the Interior......

...Hyundai Hyundai is the South Korean automaker for excellence, whose name translated into English means "modernity”. The Hyundai cars are simple, resilient and known for their low cost. Created in the middle of the country’s recovery after the Korean War, Hyundai received help from Ford, which through its subsidiaries in the UK, helped to set up its manufacturing plant. The brand was born in 1947 by Chung Ju-yung, Son of North Korean peasant farmers; dominant figure in the Korean economy from 1960 until his death in 2001. Hyundai built its first car in 1968, the “Cortina”, a compact sedan under Ford license. In 1975, Hyundai made its first own model, the Pony, in collaboration with Mitsubishi and the firm “Italdesign” of Turin. Currently, Hyundai has one of the most respected research and development centers of the industry. In 1997, South Korea suffered of a serious financial crisis which also affected the automotive industry involving the Daewoo’s bankrupt (now part of General Motors). Hyundai overcame the crisis, but it was forced to divide its many operations (construction, banking, petrochemicals, logistics, shipbuilding, etc...) into 5 separate companies. One of these, the most internationally known, is the Hyundai Motor Group which now includes the brand Kia. The company has been one of the most influential industrial conglomerates in South Korea's economy. And currently, it’s the second-largest chaebol behind Samsung. The 6 major group companies are: •......

...1. Genesis 1-3. The Bible talks of beginnings and God is already there (He is not a born god as with Greeks). 1. List the six days of creation and say what happens in each. 1) On the first day God created the Earth, which at the time would have been a giant ball of water, and He divided light from darkness. “Formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” (Genesis 1:1-5) 2) On day two God separated the water from the air. God made the expanse and separated water from water, He called “the expanse sky.” (Genesis 1:6-8) 3) On the third day God created the land and plants. Moving all water to one place that allowed dry ground to appear. He called this dry ground land and he called the gathered water seas. Thus, allowing land to produce vegetation: “seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” (Genesis 1:9-13) 4) On the fourth day God created the stars and the sun. Creating two great lights, “the greater light to govern day, and lesser light to govern night.” (Genesis 1:14-19) 5) On day five fish and birds were created. Living birds flying above the expanse sky and the great creature in the expanse sea. God blessed them and said, “be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on earth.” (Genesis 1:20-23) 6) On the sixth day of creation, land animals and man were created.

...Genesis 1-2 That both male and female equality hardship, properly defined were instituted by God at Creation and remain permanent beneficent aspects of human existence. Let me define male and female equality: man and woman are equal in the sense that they bear God’s image equally. Let me also define male hardship, in the partnership of two spiritually equal human beings man, woman. The man bears the primary responsibility to lead the partnership in a God glorifying direction. The earth was formless and empty, some understand a gap indeterminate period of time between verse 1 and 2 translate became rather than was. Although the Hebrew word may mean became the construction of the causes does not support consecutive statements describing something that happened subsequent to verse 1 and rather describing something included in versus 1. In other words the initial creation was formless and empty a condition soon renew died. The phase means that at this point in God’s creativity the earth was yet unfashionable and inhabited. Leviticus 19:18- Jesus Christ designated the last part of this more as the second greatest commandment. Observe this use in Matthew 22:39, Mark 12:31, 33,19:23-25.

Kia and Hyundai

...Both Hyundai and Kia rely on exports for much of their sales. Consequently, the companies are highly vulnerable to changes in exchange rates. When the South Korean currency, the won, rises relative to the U.S. dollar, the cars sold in the United States are recorded at a lower price when translated back into won. This of course hurts Hyundai and Kia's profits, and forces the two companies to sell more units just to stay even. Both Hyundai and Kia Announced plan to expand production in the United States. Hyundai already has a plant in Alabama, and Kia will soon be opening a plant in Georgia. Both companies hope that having a U.S. manufacturing site will help protect them against adverse currency movements. Most students will probably recognize that having the U.S. production locations allows the firms to shift production during times of sustained currency movements. Some students may also note that since both companies rely on the U.S. market for a substantial share of their profits, having a U.S. presence may be beneficial simply Because they are closer to an important market, and Because U.S. consumers might be more inclined to purchase cars made by Americans. At the same time though, students will probably point out that manufacturing in the United States where wages are higher could make it more difficult for the companies to implement their low cost strategies. If Hyundai expects the won to appreciate, Hyundai should consider expansion in the United States. A Stronger......

...Moreover, Hyundai Motors still low brand recognition as compared to other larger firms which causes the firm harder in grabbing a wide range of buyers. As the low brand recognition, price depreciation rate is very high in comparison to Toyota or Honda. Therefore, it limits new car buyers from buying Hyundai. II. Technological Advancement Investors that invest in Hyundai are favored toward increasing the market share and larger advertisement schemes, instead of creating drastic technological advancement. Hyundai is still a runner-up in the area where all the rivals begun to produce Hybrid vehicles. As a result, Hyundai could not compete in some areas of the market where technological advancement is critical. III. Small Pool of Previous Buyers Most consumers do research before purchasing an automobile. The feedbacks from previous buyers can be a decisive factor for many consumers. Nonetheless, Hyundai does not have a huge pool of previous buyers to provide feedback, thus many careful consumers hesitate to buy Hyundai. IV. Product recalls Over the past few years before 2012, Hyundai recalled more than 300,000 cars in over sea market to fix manufacturing and design defects. Product recalls negatively impact Hyundai’s reputation. Needless to say, recall is good policy, but frequent recall could arise loss of customers and it would become weakness. V. Bankruptcy of middle sized companies supplying components There were some articles about Hyundai Motor’s......

...As children we are taught to always tell the truth in every situation. Catchy clichés such as "the truth will set you free" are used to reinforce honesty in our minds. However, is it possible that lying can further your success in life, more so than honesty? Literary evidence seems to support this. Even the Bible offers stories of lying and cheating without consequence. Three literary works–the book of Genesis, William Shakespeare’s Othello, and Sir Walter Ralegh’s poem The Lie–offer support that, perhaps, the truth is not always what it’s cracked up to be. Sir Walter Ralegh discusses lying versus telling the truth in depth in his poem The Lie. In this poem, it appears that a member of the court is telling his servant (the servant being the "Soul," or perhaps the poem itself) to visit various genres of upper-class people and expose to them the uncomfortable truths of their existence. If they begin to deny these truths, the servant is commanded to "give them the lie," and publicly accuse them of being untruthful. Ralegh is claiming that these higher members of society are living lies and should be aware of them. He says, "Say to the church, it shows / What’s good and doth no good." During Ralegh’s time, clergymen were of the most powerful men in society, and they were also considered among, if not the, most corrupt. Ralegh’s intent with these lines is to expose that the church was not practicing the goodness that they were preaching about, thus harming the congregation...

...but if they choose the lesser one, does that make it morally okay? Determining where an act may reside on the scale of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ has been an ongoing debate that predates biblical times and is tried based on individual circumstance and belief. The Christian religion, however, has drawn a distinct line between the two forces based on the scriptures of the Holy Bible. Genesis 2.5-3, better known as the story of Adam and Eve, gives the Christian explanation for why ‘Evil’ exists in this ‘all-perfect being’ created world. This scripture’s purpose is to point out where that debated line’s location stands and how to identify it. The forces of good and evil are symbolized by Eve and the serpent which are mediated by the “Tree of Knowledge”. Whether an act is good or evil cannot be strictly defined, the ‘good’ and ‘evil’ in this world can only be defined personally but a general idea of what lies under the two is usually accepted as a whole by cultures. Binary pairs allow us to identify a relationship between opposite ideas in order to estimate where a third party may stand on the spectrum. The book of Genesis (specifically 2.5-3) utilizes the pairing of ‘Good’ versus ‘Evil’ to demonstrate the severity of disobeying the Christian god and its consequences. Eve, the first woman on Earth, represents the purity and innocence that comes with being a ‘good’ and pure being. The serpent in the story symbolizes the unheard of and avoidable “Evil” of the world. By using this pair,......

...Genesis is the first book of Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament. The Judeo-Christian religion believes in a single God. This is known as monotheism. Genesis tells us that the world exists only because God does, and because he chose to make it. The world does not have to exist. If nothing had ever been created, God would still exist, throughout all eternity. This God created the entire world from nothing and bestowed life to all things which means that he is the origin of all. In this paper, which is about Genesis I will be analyzing and interpreting the meaning of the passages according to my understanding. According to Genesis the Creation of the entire cosmos (universe) took place in six days. In these six days various relationship between humankind’s to God can be seen. Day one God separated light from darkness and named the light as day, whereas the darkness as night. God saw light as good and dark as bad. Day two Earth’s formation of atmosphere took place which separated the water into oceanic and atmospheric water. Day three God gathered all the water into one area so that the dry land may appear and God created dry land and oceans. That day God also created vegetation, seed-bearing plants, and trees that bear fruit in this God saw well. The fourth day God created the sun, moon, stars, and the other planet so that they can serve as signs for the set times for the days, weeks, months, and years. The fifth day God created the aquatic creatures and birds, he......
