Tom Yum Kung

In today’s world, everyone knows that culture and value play a significant role in our society. As Geert Hofstede defined the definition of culture, culture is the collective programming of the human mind that distinguishes the members of the one human group from those of another. There were a lot of movies that i would like to watch but, one of the interesting movies is Tom Yum Kung, it was a Thai action movie and was very famous. The reason that i choose this because it was not only about the action but, it covered a lot of Thai culture. According to Tom Yum Kung, it shown a lot of situations that related to Thai culture, hero, religious, and symbol. There was a amazing guy whose name is Kham. He is the guard who once watched over the King of Thailand's war elephants. He grown up forming close relations to his elephant. During Songkran festival, the elephants are stolen. Then, Kham discovered that his elephant was sent to Sydney, Australia. Kham arrived in Sydney, During the way that went to find his elephant, he was attacked by the wrestler and countless extreme sports enthusiasts but, he still won because he fought by using the Thai boxing which called, “MAE MAI MUAY THAI”. Moreover, he found the Thai girl which was bullied, he saved her from the gangsters, he seem like a hero because he protect several people from the dangerous. After that, his brother called him and told him that he hided in a Buddhist monastery. Kham went to help his brother and then looking for the way to find the elephant. Soon after their departure, the monastery is set on fire. But then they returned to handle the situation, this event taught that even if he comfort in a hard situation but he still went back to extinguish the fire, the monastery seem like a symbol of religious in Thailand. Finally, kham found his elephants and he was very happy. Even if he already found…...

...Ginny Roady Mr. Moes 5 April 2012 Consumer Marketing Project TOMS When it comes to choosing the proper footwear I have come very accustom to TOMS shoes. I started becoming interested in TOMS about four years ago when one of my friends went on a trip and brought me home a pair. I loved them, they were extremely comfortable and I felt so neat wearing them, mostly because the people I hung out with at the time wore them and I always wanted a pair. TOMS was still relatively new to the world when I started wearing them. Blake Mycoskie founded TOMS in 2006 after taking a trip to Argentina and seeing the vast amount of children walking around without shoes. These people were experiencing devastating poverty and weak health conditions. Mycoskie left Argentina and couldn’t shake the feeling that he needed to do something to help. That’s where the journey for a new hope began. The traditional shoes that the lucky few Argentines wear is called alpargata and Mycoskie’s idea was to take that traditional shoe and reinvent it. The other part of his idea was to make every pair of shoe that was sold to a new pair to give to a child in need. Mycoskie was not new to the business world; before TOMS he had five other businesses that he grew into success. Although he wasn’t a rookie the first year still wasn’t easy. At first Mycoskie was only trying to sell on a small scale out of his apartment in California. He had his close friends and family at his side spreading the word and even......

Movie

...Metaphor for Telling It has been countless years since I have watched a movie about Native Americans, and even longer since I have witnessed a decent one. Most films on the subject of the Native American people are often set in the past and are habitually on the subject of brave Indian warriors. I had never viewed a Native American motion picture filmed in a present day setting, dealing with contemporary issues until I watched Smoke Signals. In the movie Smoke Signals, co-producer and scriptwriter Sherman Alexie uses unexpected humor, numerous significant flashbacks, and modernized Native American storytelling traditions to best narrate his story and the historical plight of Native Americans. First of all, Alexie employs wit by mocking stereotypical reservation life, the frequently biased film industry, and even his own people, the Native Americans. From the opening scene as tribal meteorologist and traffic reporter Lester Falls Apart covers his seemingly uneventful daily traffic report, as he has for the last twenty-six years, from the rooftop of his broken down KREZ van, we are introduced to the odd and amusing way of life on the “rez.” In another scene, Victor and Thomas are embarking on their solemn journey and are offered a ride by Thelma and Lucy driving down the road in reverse; again, it is suggested that they exist in a somewhat backwards nation. In addition, Alexie is quick to taunt the movie industry by belittling white cowboy heroes; he even goes so far......

Movie Critique

...from the lead actor Tom Cruise. STORYTELLING The story of Rain Man is presented in a way that keeps the viewer in the dark as the story develops; delivering surprises and plot twists along the way. Writers Barry Morrow and Ronald Bass provide an excellent framework for the actors to really shine in their portrayal of the two main characters: self centered, smooth street-smart Charlie Babbit and his institutionalized autistic savant older brother, Raymond Babbitt. We are introduced to Charlie at the start of the film and quickly understand that he is a successful import automobile broker and willing/able to do whatever is necessary to deliver his product- this even includes paying off EPA officials, if necessary. Charlie is unrelenting in his quest to accomplish his goal. When he finds out that his long estranged father has passed away, he is expecting to inherent a portion of his late father’s $3 million dollar estate; only to uncover that he has an autistic brother who has received all of the inheritance money from their late father, the irony is almost too much for Charlie. This is pure genius from a storytelling perspective as it helps to humanize Charlie. As important as the storytelling is, this film would never have reached it’s level of achievement without the powerful and stirring acting by Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. ACTING As stated in the introduction, I assert that the powerful and unpredictable acting exhibited by namely Tom Cruise, was......

...1. All of YUM! Brands, Inc. restaurant chains are positioned within the Quick Service segment of the restaurant industry. Do they compete with each other? Why? Why not? Yum brands restaurants do not compete with each other. Yum brands offer different products and are inspired by something unique. For example, Taco bell is specifically made with Mexican inspired products and does not offer products KFC, Pizza Hut or A&W. All these restaurants have similarities in the sense that they are all quick service, offer connivance and value. 2. What are the advantages of YUM’s multi branding strategy? Disadvantages? The advantage of yums strategy is that they do not compete with each other. They drive good global growth. Most importantly this strategy does a good job of targeting the majority of the demographic groups. We are continually living at a faster pace as we continue to develop and grow in diverse levels, fast, cheap and easy has become very popular. The disadvantages are; with the use of technology and accessibility to people who are educated, consumers are becoming more concerned for not only fast and cheap but also quality and nutritious. With YUMs strategy they are missing all the different types of behaviors and don’t cater to those who want fine dining. 3. What other growth strategies might you recommend to YUM! Brands, Inc.? I would recommend Yum to further market research not only what drives people in to their restaurants but what drives them out? Yes they......

Toms Shoes

...How do you define creativity? What makes something creative? Many questions arise when something is labeled creative. When Blake Mycoskie came up with Toms shoes he was thinking of a creative way to put shoes on people of needs feet and make money at the same time. Toms shoes is a is a for profit organization that donates a pair of shoes to a child in need every time a consumer buys a pair. Toms shoes is considered creative because his idea is novel and appropriate as well as socially acceptable. The product started as a little c and over time became a big c. This is how Sawyer defines creativity. Over the course of this paper I will give you the background of Toms shoes and how it evolved from the little c to big c. So one may ask what makes something creative? Creativity refers to when a person creates a product or a solution that is labeled as new and is valuable. The creator could label the product as new and then society or the person buying the product will label it as novel. Since not all creative people are alike it is hard to justify something creative. It is said that something has to be able to be repeated or tweeked in order to be creative. Things on the little c creativity scale is said to just imply basic functions whereas creative products on the big c level are up for Pulitzer and Nobel prize awards. You can see the difference between the two in that type of analogy. Blake Mycoskie has always had dreams of starting his own businesses and building......

Why not?  No, they don’t compete with each other, because each chain has their customers, they try to make a satisfaction and also a good experience for customers. They don’t even try to compete. Also this company is take a tremendous amount of pride in each individual and believe in acknowledging a job well done on every level. We don’t stop until we achieve breakthrough results, so we encourage you to master your skill set, while constantly expanding your expertise. 2. What are the advantages of YUM’s multibranding strategy? Disadvantages? Some of their advantages are that they believe their customers' experience will never exceed that of their team members. For that reason, our Dynasty Model starts with their people. We know that people don't just play a role in our success – they are the reason for their success. Our corporate values – what we call their How We Win Together principles – are built around a "People Capability First" philosophy and lay the groundwork for the way they team together every day. Another advantage could be for example on China and another countries exists a chicken named Chicky, this make the young people (kids) to come to the restaurant (KFC), it makes a party for the kids but this only happen on China not the USA.

...to make a better future, and include giving into their lives (Mycoskie, (n.d.). TOM’s is a limited liability company, so it is impossible to see who the board members, or senior management is in the company; however, TOM’s partnered with Charlize Theron’s African outreach program to create limited edition shoes. They use the proceeds from these purchases to go toward medical and educational support to various communities in Africa (One for One, 2013). TOM’s has also partnered with Movemeber Foundation creating shoes with a mustache in place of the TOM’s logo to produce awareness for men’s health (Movember | TOMS, 2016). In 2010 Blake paired up with Charity: Water. They made more limited edition shoes and donated five dollars from each sale of shoe as well as ten dollars from each sale of eyewear to provide clean water to 540 people who reside in Sekura, Ethiopia (TOMS | charity: Water, 2010). Although TOM’s company’s information is kept confidential, it’s simple to see that Blake runs a company that dedicates itself to giving. Every step TOM’s makes is in the direction of partnering up with other organizations to expand and integrate profits and donations across the globe, while eliminating disease, and encouraging education. TOM’s remains an inspirational leaderfor companies to integrate corporate responsibility a little further than donations. Control Systems TOM’s is an Internet based company, so you won’t find a TOM’s outlet or store location, however; you can......

...David Lew Qingwei Rachel Crumpler Business and its Publics: Section 29 May 12, 2013 TOMS Shoes and the Effective Creation of Shared Value Over the last 30 years, absolute poverty worldwide has fallen 20%, yet poverty levels in Africa have remained static, hovering around 40% of the continent’s population over the same time period (“Poverty”). Poverty is endemic to many developing nations in Africa, and many attempts have been made to ameliorate the socio-economic toll that it wreaks on the region. However, the continued predominance of poverty in the region today makes it clear that previous attempts at traditional poverty eradication have failed. More recently, the rise of social entrepreneurship has revitalized the discussion about poverty alleviation, with companies committing themselves to creating transformational benefit for the disadvantaged segments of society (Martin 151). TOMS Shoes is such a company that has made a commitment to social responsibility. Unfortunately, TOMS and its footwear draws a great deal of criticism, and there is mounting evidence that creating shared value, as seen in Oliberté Footwear’s business model, is a more effective route to poverty alleviation. Ultimately, we must carefully consider the advantages of Oliberté’s shared value over TOMS’ social responsibility, and call for future social business models to take note of what both of these social enterprises do right and wrong to create the best solution for bringing upward social......

Tom Benecke

...changed due to certain events and realizations in their life. A dynamic character is one who, in literature or drama, undergoes a permanent change in the course of the plot. Tom Benecke a character in Jack Finney’s “Contents of a Dead Man’s Pockets”, is an example of a dynamic character. His personality in the beginning of the story differs his personality in the end; in fact it’s the complete opposite. Tom Benecke realizes that work isn’t everything in life, and that happiness is the root to success. Tom Bececke, a work-a-holic, chooses to stay home and finish his project for work rather than going out with his wife to watch a movie that both Tom and his wife want to watch. “I got to get this done” says Tom to his wife. “You work too much, though, Tom-and too hard” says Clare, to Tom who’s paying no attention. Tom is determined to get his project done fast so his boss can look over it over the weekend, and hopefully get a “promotion” very soon. “You won’t mind though, will you, when the money comes rolling in and I’m known as the boy wizard of wholesale”. This shows his greediness for money and how he wants to be popular at work. He abandons his wife for work even though Tom really wants to go. “It was not actually true that he had to work tonight though he really wanted to”. After Clare left to the movies, Tom, thinking that he’s going to get his project done tonight, looks over to the window to find out that his valuable project had flew out the narrow opening of the......
