Dear Susan,

As part of the local community recreational programs for youth, I am pleased that you’re organizing a soccer team for girls. A soccer team for girls will provide young girls the opportunity to learn valuable teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship skills.

However, as the owner of Kitchener Sporting Goods and a member of the local community recreational programs for youth, I will not be able to donate $1,000 for uniforms and equipment to the girl’s soccer team for the following reasons: * The economy is currently in a recession * The increase in property and business tax * Many small businesses affected by the recession, property and business tax

These following reasons have affected many small businesses both internally and externally, and are suffering from sales.

Furthermore, due to inflation prices of uniforms and equipment have increased * Uniforms have increased from $30.00 to $55.00 * Equipment’s range from $30.00 to $200.00
In addition to the previous figures, I would like to provide assistant for selecting team uniforms and equipment for the soccer team. Parents and players can come in for fittings, and from Monday to Friday we are open from 9:00am to 8:00pm.

Please log on to our website <> for store hours and promotions. Please let me know if you need any additional information. You can email me to I look forward to keeping in contact and possibly doing business with you.…...

Be Good

...they're a good model for the early phases. Google looked a lot like a charity in the beginning. They didn't have ads for over a year. At year 1, Google was indistinguishable from a nonprofit. If a nonprofit or government organization had started a project to index the web, Google at year 1 is the limit of what they'd have produced. Back when I was working on spam filters I thought it would be a good idea to have a web-based email service with good spam filtering. I wasn't thinking of it as a company. I just wanted to keep people from getting spammed. But as I thought more about this project, I realized it would probably have to be a company. It would cost something to run, and it would be a pain to fund with grants and donations. That was a surprising realization. Companies often claim to be benevolent, but it was surprising to realize there were purely benevolent projects that had to be embodied as companies to work. I didn't want to start another company, so I didn't do it. But if someone had, they'd probably be quite rich now. There was a window of about two years when spam was increasing rapidly but all the big email services had terrible filters. If someone had launched a new, spam-free mail service, users would have flocked to it. Notice the pattern here? From either direction we get to the same spot. If you start from successful startups, you find they often behaved like nonprofits. And if you start from ideas for nonprofits, you find they'd often make......

The Sporting Life

...body beautiful?” asks Dina La Vardera. “It's high time you hung up your trainers and exercised your mind, not your body.” Think about the things in life that give you most pleasure. Watching television, perhaps, while sipping chilled lager? How about eating lasagne verde by candlelight in a favourite Italian restaurant? What do they all have in common? They all involve nothing more strenuous than sitting or lying down. Why, then, this present mania for doing things that necessitate remaining vertical or running around? I hate exercise and all forms of sport and I abhor the smugness and self-righteousness of those who think developing rippling muscles and flat stomachs superior to the cultivation of personality, manners, good taste in art, music, literature and food. I hate the multi-million dollar propaganda that accompanies the body beautiful, with its lure of glamour and eternal youth. I was brought up to believe that physical exercise was bad for one, and experience seems to support my parents' philosophy that pain, suffering and ill-health result from anything more strenuous than walking to the pillar box on the corner or digging the allotment. This has been reinforced over the years by reports of footballers with torn ligaments, athletes crippled by arthritis, or joggers dropping dead with heart attacks. Most people's early experiences of exercise - after crawling into furniture and throwing building bricks under the settee - come from......

1920 Sport and Sporting Stars

...1920’s Sport and Sporting Stars!! Caroline Gertrude Ederle, was a famous American swimmer, she became the first woman to swim the English Channel. In 1926, at the age of 19, Ederle swam the channel from France to England. Her time of 14 hours 39 minutes for the 35-mile (56-kilometer) distance broke the previous record and stood as the women's record for 35 years. From 1921 to 1925, Ederle set 29 United States and world records for swimming races ranging from the 50-yard to the half-mile race. In the 1924 Summer Olympic Games, she won a gold medal as a member of the championship U.S. 400-meter freestyle relay team. She also won bronze medals for finishing third in the 100-meter and 400-meter freestyle races. Ederle was among the first real sports heroines to prove that women were not physically inferior or incapable of strenuous activity.

The Future of Sporting Goods

...What will the sports and fitness industry look like in five years? The sports and fitness industry has come a long way and will continue to grow in the next five years. We will see the gap between the manufacturer and the customer shrink to the benefit of both parties. Also, manufacturers will continue to capitalize on breakthroughs in data collection technologies in order to fulfill the demands of their data hungry customers. With these new analytical tools, we will continue to see more and more innovative solutions to problems that were previously unknown or undefinable. Another opportunity for the industry to grow is by the acceptance that our bodies, our actions, our sports, and our lives are not perfectly symmetrical. Increasingly, companies are braving the extra effort and manufacturing challenges to make their products asymmetrical to more accurately fit the real world needs of the user. I suppose the first ever example would have occurred a few thousand years ago when cobblers began making left and right-footed shoes. It was not until just a few years ago that the same concept was successfully applied to socks! Nike Elite socks exploded on the scene with great success despite a high price point. This is one example of many across the world of sports and fitness. While Nike was fortunate to grab this low hanging fruit, it is safe to say that future innovations will require a more technical approach. In closing, if a company wants to thrive in this......

Good Will

...on Kant’s views on good will and moral worth, along with some real life examples, Socrates’s discussion on differences between mere true belief and real knowledge of virtue and several other philosophers’ unique interpretations and related discussions on this topic. Kant makes a clear argument about good will in the very beginning of his book Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals. He explicitly states that: “There is no possibility of thinking anything at all in the world, or even out of it, which can be regarded as good without qualification, except a good will. (Kant 7)” Kant believes that a good will is always morally good. Therefore, what a good will does is always morally good as well. Also, he obviously takes good will as the only true standard to judge the moral worth of a certain action. He explains that everything that seems to be good by itself actually could only be good if they are driven by a good will; without a good will, these other things might be used to produce negative outcomes. Except for a good will, nothing else would be good simply on its own. For example, loyal soldiers with bravery driven by a good will protect the city and the citizens well, and some of them may even sacrifice their own lives for such honorable aims. But without a good will, bravery can be used by greedy robbers and may lead to terrible outcomes. Also, scientists may use intelligence with a good will to improve our lives in various aspects; without such good will,......

Be Good or Be Good at It

...Tamyra Hamilton Susan LaPlant ENGL 1102 K 2 April 2015 Be Good or Be Good At It In the article “Parents Notification Policies for Underage Drinking Evolve” by Jenna Johnson she discusses the pros and cons of informing a parent about their child’s alcohol-related actions that they condone at universities. Johnson seems to be on the fence throughout the whole article on whether she agrees or disagree with informing parents on every little detail in their child’s life pertaining to consuming or even just being around alcohol. In the article, Johnson quotes the vice president of student affairs at Virginia Tech, Edward Spencer, when he states “[s]tudents are more concerned about their parents being notified than they are of the legal consequences,” which is true because parents are more terrifying than any form of law enforcement (qtd. in Johnson). Regardless of how minor a situation is parents should be notified if their child is in any situation pertaining to alcohol. It is better for parents to know and be upset for a little while with their child than it is for the parents to not know and possibly not even have a child to be upset with because their child could be taken away from them. It is always best to expect the unexpected in any case regardless of the teenager trying to gain independence. The director of student conduct at the University of Maryland, John Zacker, said it best when he stated that “[t]here is no magical line here between May of their senior......

Sporting Safety

... 1- What problems do you commonly see at sporting arenas or school events? Does your school allow for after-hours use by the public? Spectator aggression in sporting arenas or school events is among the challenges related to sports and school events that administrators are struggling to deal with. It is associated to issues of crowd management at different locations and levels. Fans-related hostility mostly occurs either within or outside stadiums and has made the perception of events by negative by mostly parents. Property destruction that involves the knocking down of sound systems, destroying the playing field, damaging the venue or other people’s property is among the problems experienced during events. In addition, verbal abuses and gesturing that include yelling chants, singing obscene songs, and signalling threats and improper motions are other challenges that are almost impossible to deal with during events. Throwing of missiles and other items such as food stuffs, drinks, bottles, and broken seats represent other troubles caused in sporting arenas. Furthermore, swarming is another issue where fans rush to the stage; crash gates to gain entry, and rush to the exit to the exit may result in death or injury from trampling. Our school has a strict policy that governs the use of institution properties for events. The policy allows only isolated fields to be used for sporting events by outsiders. Also, strict rules and regulations are imposed by the administration to......

Organizational Culture: Dicks Sporting Goods

...Culture: Dicks Sporting Good Logistics: The store I chose to observe was Dicks sporting goods, which is located in the Cordova Mall at the intersection of Airport Boulevard and North 9th Avenue, Pensacola, FL. It is located directly across from both Pensacola State College and Sacred Heart Hospital, each a very busy campus.  It is also right by the airport, which attracts lots of attention and traffic flow.  These roads are extremely busy during almost all hours of the day, so the likelihood of stores’ hosting shoppers in indirectly increased. Dicks Sporting Goods is in a great location and is surrounded by many stores and restaurants, ultimately giving customers perceived convenience. My observation was done on November 12th at 6pm with my father. Overview of the Organization: Stores that deliver finished products to the public classify the retail industry. In 1927, there was an unjust tax on sporting goods of 10 percent tax on every retail stores of sporting goods. This tax led sporting good dealers to create The National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA), which fought to repeal the tax, and supports its members by allowing them to be profitable. Hard goods are just one of many categories that retail entails. Hard goods include those products that are sold in sporting goods stores. Much of society today now prefers one-stop shopping with retail stores emerging on every corner that provide all types of products from groceries to clothing. Dick’s Sporting Goods,......
