Red Pony

...The classic novel The Red Pony by John Steinbeck includes four stories about a young boy Jody Tiflin who lives on his father’s California ranch. Similar to Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, the story takes place in America in the early 20th century. Each of the novel’s small town setting provides a simple yet unique economy. Through the stories of Jody Tiflin and Janie Crawford, I have made some conclusions about their specific economy. I believe that the economies of The Red Pony and Their Eyes Were Watching God contain a relatively independent economy that features many dedicated and self-employed members of society. Through the short stories in The Red Pony, Jody learns the importance of being an independent rancher who can provide for himself and his family. Although Jody is only ten years old at the start of the first story, his father Carl Tiflin believes that the most important way to mature is through firsthand experience. Mr. Tiflin asks “If you could have another horse would you work for it…?” and states that “Billy says the best way for you to be a good hand with horses is to raise a colt” (60, Steinbeck). Billy, the only paid worker on the Tiflin ranch, adds “It is the only way” (60, Steinbeck). As an aspiring leader in the business world, I completely agree with the way Carl Tiflin is teaching his son. Just like in business, the only way to get a true grasp on becoming a rancher is to actually get firsthand experience. Through the......

Pony Excess

...30 for 30: Pony Excess. The film Pony Excess delved into the unfortunate past of the SMU Mustangs football team.   In this gripping, multi-sourced documentary directors shine light on how SMU boosters and coaches colluded to form the consummate college football team.   Through the acts of mere perfect cheating, SMU succeeded in bribing top high school recruits to narrow college options only to SMU.   Once one ex-Mustang spilled the gruesome details of SMU’s “secret plan,” NCAA officials introduced the most extreme penalty to college football, the Death Penalty. This source provides an eye-catching timeline of the rise and fall of the Mustangs football program.   With the use of interviews of former players, coaches, and boosters, viewers become learned of the snide deals made with recruits, which may have been shadowed through the decades.  The Pony Excess manifests the topic of excessive boosting and how in football history, it can be the demolishment of a team.   This becomes useful in the topic of SMU and the Death Penalty through the detailed interviews and research that scrutinize what really caused the SMU death penalty.   This film gives a very straightforward approach to the SMU football scandal and elicits the true story.   Although SMU was guilty for the entire scheme, this film does take a very objective and unsympathetic view of the scandal possibly exaggerating the intent behind all decisions made during the process.   In the scheme of 1980’s SMU football and...

Mas New

...CEO of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Dato Idris Jala has announced a drastic restructuring of human resources. It is being restructured by terminating the staff of Malaysia Airlines (MAS). As we all know, MAS is considered as a big company and the number of staff in MAS is quite a large number. When there are a lot of staffs, they need to pay salaries to all of them. Salary is one of the expenses that they need to incur in the cost. Since MAS were facing a lot of problems, they need to cut some of the cost and one of it is by terminating the unproductive staffs. However, MAS is well known with their good UNION of workers. The definition of UNION is a democratic organization of working people standing up for their rights on the job. There is one situation that really happens in MAS that shows the UNION is very strong in MAS. In a case of MAS, when MAS planned to the share swap arrangement with Air Asia, it was not being agreed by the UNION. It is because of them, by joining Air Asia, it will give a bad image to MAS. MAS are a very well known and established company whereas Air Asia is a low budget company. Due to that, MAS management has cancelled the deal with Air Asia. This one example has shown us that the UNION in MAS is a strong UNION. When the CEO of MAS had come out with the idea of restructuring of human resources, they should also come out with a scheme named Mutual Separation Scheme or MSS. This scheme is actually being funded by compensation. MAS Airlines received its......

Mas Privatisation

...15% Title of essay: On 8 August 2014, Khazanah National announced plans to privatise Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in an attempt to revive the national carrier as it was struggling financially. Without doubt, the twin aviation disasters, MH370 and MH17, have also further contributed negatively towards MAS financials. The former prime minister of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the national flag carrier should be privatised as it is running at a loss. The Malaysia Airlines System Employees Union (Maseu), on the other hand, strongly stated that they will only support the privatisation of MAS if there is to be a new management team. In the past 12 years, MAS has undertaken about half-a-dozen restructuring exercises. Considering its current situation, the idea to privatise is seen as a necessity. In your opinion, can MAS turn itself around if it is now to be privatised? Why or why not? Justify your stand and support your arguments with reasons and examples. You should write between 600 and 650 words. Instructor: Mrs Anuratha Murugagoo On 8 August 2014, Khazanah Nasional Berhad (“Khazanah”) proposed an official petition to the Board of Directors of Malaysian Airline System Berhad (“MAS”) to handle a particular capital cutback and refund apply (“Proposed SCR”) of MAS’ ordinary shares. It shows the strategies of Khazanah National to privatise Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in an effort to recover the federal carrier while it was striving financially. Privatisation can be......

He grew up in communist China with two siblings and strict parents (Stone & D’onfro, 2014).

He grew up during China’s cultural revolution and did not have the privilege to learn English.

...Ascoltate ora come risulta il rapporto tra voci maschili di basso e bassi superiori ed il rapporto tra bassi superiori (Kickbass) e bassi profondi. Nell’impostazione ideale i  bassi si sentono perfettamente formati, con bassi profondi accentuati, e le voci maschili di basso non si devono sentire ne troppo sottili ne troppo gonfiate. Quando il suono corrisponde alle vostre aspettative, concludete il bilanciamento. In caso contrario proseguite come indicato ai sottostanti punti 4. e 5. 4. Se le voci maschili di basso si percepiscono gonfiate, o se i bassi profondi sono troppo deboli, girate il regolatore di crossover alquanto verso il punto di minimo, poi riprendete il bilanciamento dal punto 2. 5. Se i bassi si sentono profondi, ma non puliti e rimbombanti, con voci maschili di basso troppo sottili, girate il regolatore di crossover alquanto verso il punto di massimo. Poi è necessario impostare il regolatore di fase - se presente - in modo tale, che i bassi superiori si sentano possibilmente forti. Continuate poi con il bilanciamento come descritto al punto 2.

Air Asia & Mas

...Question 1 Analyze the current situation facing MAS and AirAsia using the internal and external strategic environment analysis model. Discuss what aspects and why did their collaboration take place. Answer Background to AirAsia A ‘no-frills’ airline is defined as one “That uses charter and/or scheduled flights to offer bargain-basement fares. Budget airlines usually land at and take-off from secondary airports, do not provide in-flight meals or refreshments, and may not even offer numbered seat allocation. Their ticket prices are fixed and non-refundable in case of a cancellation or no-show”. AirAsia is one of the fastest growing airline companies in the world, with a reputation as a low-cost, ‘no frills’ airline. It was originally a government owned business; yet, due to heavy debt, it was bought by former Time Warner executive Tony Fernandes in 2001, and this is where the real story begins. Their vision, under the slogan "Now Everyone Can Fly", is “To be the largest low cost airline in Asia and serving the 3 billion people who are currently underserved with poor connectivity and high fares”,(ii) and their mission is, under the banner of 'Affordable Airfares', “To attain the lowest cost so that everyone can fly with AirAsia,” without any compromise to Flight Safety Standards, as well as, creating a worldwide recognizable brand with a ‘family’ atmosphere within working conditions for employees. (iii) These statements clearly show AirAsia’s value. Cost......
