Next Up: CC Creams
The first mass CC cream to be introduced in the U.S., the biggest market in the world for color cosmetics (by retail sales), was Olay Total Effects CC Tone Correcting Line, which arrived on shelves toward the end of 2012. The brand claims to treat seven signs of aging, as well as providing color correction and UV protection. It hits all the right spots, but in multiple categories—and that might encourage brand cannibalization trends going forward.
The CC development is clever, and like BB, the trend originally came from Asia. In effect, CC creams have taken a concept that has worked extremely well and given it a marketing overhaul just at the moment when demand was starting to look vulnerable. The world’s biggest soft drink manufacturers activate this re-branding strategy all the time in order to stay ahead of the game. And it works.
Make no mistake about it. CC creams and their spin-offs will be a big hit in Western markets in 2013—and they could blur the boundaries between skin care and makeup even more than BB creams. And as yet, it is unclear whether that will have negative implications over the long-term.
It might be that consumers simply get used to what, in effect, is a new and fast-growing beauty care category, made up of skin care/makeup hybrids.

Fed Ex and Ups, Air Express Industry Analysis

...FED EX and UPS Airfreight Industry Analysis 1. During the 1980s, the air express industry was a medium to attractive industry to already be a major player in, but not a very attractive industry to try and break into. The industry can be characterized by high rivalry from competitors who compete on the same services with very little differentiation, medium power from suppliers who supply the resources necessary to run the business, high buyer power because customers can basically find an equal service from any firm in the industry, low substitution threat from other means of shipping transportation, and low threat of new entrants due to the high initial capital outlay and need of management experience. In this analysis, we will delve deeper into each of the dynamics within Porter’s 5 Forces to form an opinion of why the industry is attractive to be in and then discuss how competition greatly increased during 1988-1989. In the air express industry, where customers can ship their packages over long distances via airplane, there is high rivalry because the firms competing in the industry all do the same service. Since there is little differentiation between firms, each firm must battle for customers by either providing better or new services, integrating new competencies into their business processes, or doing business at a low price to create bigger economies to scale which will then cut down operating costs. Firms who want to......

Media Without Make Up

...The Media: Without Make Up On December 4, 2012, 10.3 million people impatiently gathered together to watch a very important event aired on CBS. Were 10.3 million people participating in a revolutionary debate? Or were they watching Obama give a speech about the progress of a ten-year fiasco in Afghanistan? Neither, in fact they we were gathering together to watch the 2011-2012 Victoria Secret Fashion Show. The sixth floor lounge of Day Hall, here at Syracuse University, was packed with girls ready to watch rail-thin models strut down the runway, as they eat away the pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Facebook and Twitter had millions of people updating their status about this worldwide-recognized show. Such as, “Not eating for the rest of the week,” “She is not real, how is she so perfect?” or sarcastic comments such as “I’m glad I look exactly like all those Victoria Secret models” (Profitable Objectification). This show is a perfect example of how the media negatively affects our society. Not only does the Victoria Secret Fashion show cause women to question their beauty, but it also instills unrealistic expectations of what women should look like to all the men. The media has a great influence on our view of beauty and has created a false perception of what females should look like. This has made it difficult for anyone that does not fit this ‘ideal’ body to accept themselves the way they are. Celebrities and models have become a representation of the ‘perfect’ body......

Air Carriers/Freight Forwarders: Serving Up Top Service in the Air

... Air Carriers/Freight Forwarders: Serving up top service in the air August 01, 2014 As noted in the 25th Annual State of Logistics Report, the air freight industry has been facing chronic overcapacity and deteriorating yields—and data surfacing in new research mirror these findings. Even though the overall air freight logistics index has improved 4.4 points from June 2013, the June 2014 data contained in the Stifel Logistics Confidence Index suggests that the air freight market still remains fragile, declining 1.9 points to 53.8. Regardless of the operational headwinds facing air carriers and the challenges that trickle down to the freight intermediaries that place the world’s cargo on board, the following 22 service providers have gone above and beyond to provide top service. Fixed path: Manufacturer deploys robotic industrial trucks October 02, 2013 AISIN is a 1-million-square-feet, automotive parts manufacturing facility located in Seymour, Ind., that employs approximately 1,700 team members.

Air Bag

...tree would bring the car to an abrupt halt. The speed of the occupants, however, would remain the same because of their independent inertia and they would bang into the steering wheel, the dashboard or the windshield. The force exerted by the steering wheel or the windshield would then bring the occupants to a stop but may in the process cause injury to vulnerable body parts such as the head and the face. Car manufacturers use 2 different restraint systems to help stop the occupants while doing as little damage to him or her as possible. The oldest one is the seatbelt that spreads this stopping force across sturdier parts of the body over a longer period of time to minimize damage. The air bag is the second and a more recently developed system that is used to deploying a rapidly inflating cushion in the space between the passenger and the steering wheel or dash board to prevent crash injuries. Fig1-Diagram of an airbag.[3] 2.History of Airbag:- The car manufactures has spent a great time in advancing car safety features. The airbag is one innovative safety feature. Before the airbags that were placed in cars, the cars did not have any safety features. They had an automatic seatbelt. The car manufactures first introduced the airbag system in the 1970s. In 1971 the Ford Company tested the airbag system at an experimental fleet. Then a few years later the Chevrolet made the airbag in cars just for the governmental purposes.

Exploring the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement in the National Basketball Association" Xiao Chen Johnson & Wales University A Review of " Did the Players Give Up Money to Make the NBA Better? Exploring the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement in the National Basketball Association" It's a long but clear title; and I use two whole lines to write it. I'm a basketball fan. When I planned to find a prime resource to read and write about it, I'm aware of some researches or business events involving my interest and business, so I chose this article. After reading the whole essay, I felt perplexed because it wasn't a general primary research that I could recognize at once and the author used some data from sports association. Finally, I thought it's available deliberately. I have two sample reasons: one is that the author collects the valuable data; the other is that the author analyze and flow the idea to the conclusion. Statement of the Problem What is the implied research question in this study? The answer is obvious. Just like the title, this research is to talk about effects of the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement in the National Basketball Association. As we knows, because of the new bargaining agreement, players will earn less money that before, and make contribution to the league, but people doesn't it affect or not. This research gives the author's analysis. Review of Related......

What Makes Up the Basics of Personality Theory

...What Makes up the Basics of Personality Theory? Linda Wray Liberty University Abstract Since the 1960’s personality theories has emerged as a major field of specialization. There have been many studies completed outlined by literature on a variety of theories of personality. The importance of individual differences and distinctiveness of the individual are the most frequently studied of personality theories. Personality refers to individual differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. The study of personality focuses on two comprehensive areas: One understands individual differences in particular personality characteristics, such as sociability or irritability. The other understands how the various parts of a person come together as a whole. Some scientists think that your personality is based on genetic predispositions or nature. Other scientists think the way you act stems from life experience, the way you were taught, and the environment in which you grew up or nurture. Personality can best be described as personal qualities of an individual. There are no two people have the same personality, however, all the different personalities in the world can be characterized into four main theories. The four psychologists that thought up the four theories are Sigmund Freud, Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, and Abraham Maslow. Each man based his theory on a different part of a person’s personality development. The study of personality traits......

Ups and Fedex Air Hubs

...UPS and FedEx Air Hubs: Comparing Louisville and Memphis Cargo Hub Operations by Alex Cosmas and Bastien Martini The economies of scale afforded to passenger airlines by the use of a hub-and-spoke model are also enjoyed, sometimes to an even greater extent, by cargo carriers. The world’s two largest integrated carriers, UPS and FedEx, run their central air hubs in Louisville (SDF) and Memphis (MEM), respectively. We present a case study of the air hub operations at SDF and MEM. The land-side and air-side operations are contrasted between SDF and MEM, and generalizations are drawn regarding issues prevalent to cargo versus passenger hubs. I. Air Cargo in History The beginning of the last century saw the dawn of flight. Since the Wright brothers’ first flight, the transfer of goods through air mail and air freight has grown tremendously. The first cargo flight ever took place between Dayton and Columbus, Ohio in November 1910, when a department store shipped a bolt of silk. Even though the shipment was of small size, the flight stayed in the records because it was achieved in less time than possible by train. Some time elapsed before the first commercial cargo airline was created. In the 1920s passenger carriers created entities to carry freight, but it remained a very low fraction of their business. In fact, the first all-cargo airline was created after World War II, but bankruptcies and accidents in the early 1950s made most of the carriers quit the business...

...beauty have changed since the book was written and that modern American society has taken on new views of what it means to be beautiful. Men and women today can use cosmetics as part of a regular beauty routine to achieve certain beauty standards and to increase confidence. Throughout the last century in America, the very meaning of beauty has changed very often: from the Gibson Girl in the early 1900s to the flappers in the 1920s, from the full-figured pin-up girls of the 1940s and the 1950s to the “heroin chic” waifs of the 1990s, what the western world considered beautiful changed with each decade. When one considers beauty, it is now most likely physical appearance that comes to mind. Hilhorst notes, “The view that physical beauty can be conceived of as a value in its own right is, however, a modern thought.” Hilhorst explains in “Physical Beauty: Only Skin Deep?” that the modern idea of beauty is a product of the 1960s. Before then, personality traits such as trustworthiness and reliability could make a person beautiful. Inner beauty was just as, or possibly more important than physical appearance. (Hilhorst) As time has passed, our perception of beauty has changed with it. “In the post-war period of the 1950s, a busty, voluptuous hourglass look was prized.” (Rehabs) Then shortly after the 1960s, the idea of beauty changed again. New decades have brought about beauty standards that are increasingly unobtainable. Models in magazines and famous people in......

...Honda A and Honda B (2 cases) * Which of the two descriptions seem closer to reality of the Honda’s successful expansion in USA? The two accounts of how Honda entered into the US market are very different; The Boston Consulting groups (BCG) report clearly shows a deliberate approach to Hondas strategy in penetrating the US motor cycle market. The report documented by Richard Pascale shows a clearly defined emergent strategy. The following study is to better understand the Key differences between these two accounts of Honda's entry into the US motorcycle market. The BCG report was requested by the British government to investigate why the UK motorcycle industry in the USA had declined since 1960. The report identified two main factors that led to the UK motorcycle industry dissolving in the US. 1. Market share loss. 2. Poor Manufacturing, technological and distribution techniques. The BCG report states that Hondas success in the US market was because of a clearly defined deliberate strategy. Hondas great success in its home country (Japan) had given Honda a highly competitive cost position to peruse other international markets. The increasing demand of Honda products in Japan led Honda to decrease the cost of out-put while increasing the level of out-put; Honda used this competitive advantage it penetrate the US market and gain a relatively high market share. The BCG report states that Honda entered the US and identified small bikes as their target market, this......

What "Makes Up" Makeup

...What “Makes Up” Makeup: A Short History of Cosmetics At the start of every morning, my mother wakes up an hour earlier than necessary to “put on her face.” As a kid, I never understood what she was doing and was constantly annoyed that it would take her extremely long to get ready to go somewhere that was barely down the street. Why was she putting makeup on to go grocery shopping? To my grandma’s house? “Because I like to, Shyla,” was the only answer I ever got. But being that young, makeup was something you only wore on special days: on Halloween, to disguise yourself as someone else or a wedding, to be pretty. My mom wearing it daily confused me. As a woman, contradictions are shot at you like bullets. “Be natural, but don’t you dare have any blemishes, pimples, scars or hair anywhere that isn’t your head.” “A girl wearing absolutely no makeup, bare faced and natural isn’t enough, but a girl wearing heavy eyeshadow and face makeup is slutty.” Everything we do is somehow scrutinized through the eyes of what a man would or wouldn’t like. We have an endless list of standards we must live up to, all the while making sure to be ourselves, because guys don’t like fake girls. Some view makeup as a weapon of destruction, like it’s lying to the world, making people appear to be flawless models with it, but completely different person without it. All those years of watching my mom layer on product after product, wondering what the point of all of it was, I realized......

The World’s Two Largest Air Cargo Companies: Fedex and Ups

...The World’s Two Largest Air Cargo Companies: FedEx and UPS Introduction In the packaging industry there are two main competitors which are FedEx and UPS. The leader of the market is FedEx in my opinion. These companies both are using technology to try to stay ahead in the industry and to maintain a hold on the consumer base. Their consumer base includes both individuals and businesses market. The beginnings of new technologies every day as our world is continuously starting to grow smaller. The rate at which we receive and relay information and the ease at which it is accessed has increased exponentially. With this comes an increased awareness and demand by the average consumer for goods and services rendered which is to be received equally as fast. This creates an increased responsibility and burden, for the logistics supply chains and corporations to their stakeholders, to ensure that they maintain the competitive advantage needed to compete in today’s global market. FedEx and UPS begin as the United States major parcel service and has a unique challenge compared to other companies providing goods and services, but they are more than capable to handle the challenges. They both have strong backgrounds and greats services that they provide. We will discuss the history of the companies, their missions, services, geographical converges, and technology.
