Ecuador hosted many civilizations. These included the Valdivia and Machalilla Cultures on the coast and the Quitus and Canari cultures in the mountains. The cultures were unique in their art and religious interests but were consolidated under the Shyris confederation for the benefit of trade and barter. The Shyris confederation was ruled by the Duchicela blood line before the Inca invasion. The confederation fought the Incans for many years before being conquered and falling loosely into the Incan Empire in 1463.
I found this really cool story about... well I’ll just tell you the story! When the Spanish conquistadors arrived, the Incan Empire was ruled by Huayna Capac with his sons Atahualpa and Huascar. With Huayna Capac's death in 1525, the empire was divided in two: Atahualpa got the north, with his capital in Quito; Huascar got the south, with its capital in Cusco. In 1530, Atahualpa defeated his own brother, Huascar, and claimed control over the entire empire. Atahualpa's victory was short-lived as he was soon captured by the Spanish conquistadors in Cajamarca, and later killed.
Disease plagued the native population during the first decades of Spanish rule, a time when the natives also were forced into the encomienda labor system for the Spanish. In 1563, Quito became the seat of an administrative district of Spain and part of the Viceroyalty of Peru, and later the Viceroyalty of New Granada.
After nearly 300 years of Spanish colonization, Quito was still a small city of only 10,000 inhabitants. It was here, on August 10, 1809, that the first call for independence from Spain was made in Latin America, under the leadership of the city's president Juan Pío Montúfar. Quito's nickname, Light of America, comes from the fact that this was the first successful attempt to make an independent and local government. The rebellion only lasted two months before it was…...

...Problems Facing AriZona Tea One of the largest issues facing the industry is competition. With numerous brands of tea offering similar products with nearly the same benefits, it’s difficult for any one brand to stand out. In addition to the intense competition, ready-to-drink tea faces problems with availability. AriZona tea, specifically, is only sold in certain retail stores in the United States and only in a few countries outside of North America. Also, the lack of advertising has created problems for the company. Without advertising, it is harder for the brand to compete against Lipton, Snapple and Nestea, which produce national advertisements are a regular basis. Opportunities Facing AriZona Tea One of the greatest opportunities facing the brands in the ready-to-drink tea industry is the ability to expand their products. Companies can expand their brand by introducing new types of drinks, new flavors, new ingredients or they can expand a product and/or brand line. Another thing that is quickly gaining popularity in the world today is the promotion of positive health benefits through organic products. This is something that AriZona tea, as well as its competitors, have started promoting through their all-natural, gluten-free drinks Target Description This report will focus on all users of ready-to-drink tea who consumed AriZona tea within the past six months.

Book is a certain thing that we can read (obviously xD) By the use of book we can gain knowledge… beliefs… and so on… I’m not a book worm you know but I know how important book is =) our professor asked us what book gave a great impact in our lives… I already red tons of books in my 16 years of existence most of them are about Greek Mythology, History and Scary Stuff but even one of them doesn’t leave great impact in me, yeah in a short period of time I was amazed and captured by those books. But suddenly I realized that those books doesn’t make sense, yeah the Greek Myths and History books that I had red actually helps me to learn more about the past of this freakin’ world but what’s the use? Can it help me to be a better student, daughter and person? Can it help me to fulfill my dreams? Or can it save my life from that horrifying eternal death? Of course not! The only book that can help me with those things/problems which probably leave and until now giving a great impact in my life is the awesome, wonderful and amazing Book of Bible. Bible… what is Bible? Well it is a book which contains the life of our awesome savior Jesus Christ. It also contains teachings and lesson for our daily lives. Teenagers now a days find Bible as a plain boring thing (the saddest part in my essay ) They think that reading Bible is nothing but a waste of time. I’m not angry with them in fact I feel pity for them because they don’t know how great God......

...cost and exercise their great power. 4) Of the World’s Top 20 wine brands, Nine US brands featured in that list which was an achievement. Weakness: 1) It has become a high cost producer due to the high land prices. 2) Another major drawback is unavailability of land for expansion in the premium wine areas. 3) American producers focused a lot on their large and high priced domestic market, but fell behind global price (low and high points). 4) Average wine prices for US in similarly rated wine was more when compared to Australia. EX: Californian wine was 55$ whereas Australian was 20$. 5) Controlled Immigration has resulted in the increase of labor costs. Opportunities: 1) The US wine market can look to target the super-premium and ultra-premium sections. 2) As the oversupply of the market grew surplus wine was being purchased on the spot which led to the creation of a popular low price brand named “Two Buck Chuck” which sold 5 million cases a year, here is there is an opportunity to market and expand this brand. 3) There is an increase in demand for the consumption of wine in countries such as Canada and Russia, so US should look to serve their needs and increase their profits. 4) The US market is the third largest wine importer in the world and is one of the fastest growing major wine market, so they should look to capitalize on that and reach the top.

The Super Bowl

The National Football League is one of the biggest sports franchises in the world. Every year the NFL hosts a championship game called the Super Bowl. 32 teams compete in 16 games, and the best move on into the playoffs. For the last 48 years two teams battle it out for bragging right as the best team in the NFL. The Super Bowl has gone down in history as the best championship game ever assembled in the history of any sport. Did you know that the Super Bowl started 49 years ago? On January 15th, 1967 was the debut of the first ever Super Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. The Green Bay Packers took on the Kansas City Chiefs. During this time the NFL had a rival league called the American Football League. The Chiefs were a part of the AFL and the Packers were a part of the NFL. This is the first and only Super Bowl where it was the AFL vs. NFL before both leagues merged into one. The Packers beat the Chiefs 35-10 and were the fans favorite. NBC and CBS both televised the game collectively racking in 51.18 million viewers (Unknown, 2014). This was the first and last time that two networks televised a Super Bowl game at......

Super Project

...Super Project 1.What are the relevant cash flows for General Foods to use in evaluating the Super project? In particular, how should management deal with such issues as: a)Test-market expenses? The test market expense should not be included in the cash flow analysis since it is a sunk cost. Since the cost of the test market have already been made before the Super project had started. So regardless of this project being accepted or rejected, the cost must be taken as a sunk cost. b)Overhead expenses? The overhead expenses will not be taken into account in the FCF because it have been justified earlier in the Jello-O project. In addition to that, the data available in the exhibits does not provide specific information on incremental overhead expenses. OR it can be included if the expansion of super project will require extra capital and labour force to sustain the increasing demand for the product. c)Erosion of Jell-O contribution margin? It should not be included because it is directly related to the rest of the firm. When an economic obstacle happened to Jell -O sales due to erosion, it will leave a significant effect. It can be considered that the erosion might occur due to competition and by judging from Table A, it seems that the erosion due to competition is irrelevant and assumes a very low profitability. However, if we assume that Super project will get into the Jell –O sales and this must be taken as the cost for the project.......

Super Pacs

...Super PACs is good for the citizens because it allows people to be in control of their representatives of whom they are discontent with. It is irrational that people need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to defeat house members that were previously selected in a relatively fair manner.Since a super PAC collects and spends unlimited amounts of money, which may be worse for the government. With so much money, it is hard to trust that the government’s motives are as pure as they claim to be. A group of individuals could pool their money in the form of unlimited contributions into a PAC, so long as it remained independent from political parties or candidates, which prevents corruption of the government. Since it is possible for anyone to make a donation of any amount of money, it may be possible for companies or other people to take advantage of this. In 1999 in Peru, Alberto Fujimori’s campaign needed money, so Fujimori bribed his chief advisor, Vladmir Montesinos in exchange for being promoted to head of the Supreme Council of Military Justice.There is not much difference in this bribing and donating large sums of money to super PACs except for the fact that the super PACs are legal, and the other is not.Nobody gives money away and expects nothing in return. There are people who complain that super PACs spend "secret" money. This is just not true because by law, super PACs are required to disclose their donors.There is no possible way for money to go through......

Super Baker

...a) What unique strategies and tactics did Super Bakery’s management implement that caused sales to take off and continue to grow at an average rate of 20%? There were basically four strategies implemented that helped sales to grow annually at a 20-30% rate. The first was targeting school systems and creating a healthier product that met government guidelines. The second was keeping the product fresher; longer by refrigeration and vacuum sealing thus allowing for national distribution. The third strategy involved a variety of ways to support customers. According to Davis and Darling (1996), “ …helping customers obtain lower prices by acquiring government-supported commodities, cooperating with noncompeting suppliers by providing complete prepackaged meals to schools, and helping distributors reduce inventory carrying costs and avoid stock outs through reliable, just-in-time delivery” (p. 20). The fourth strategy is becoming a virtual corporation which does not manufacture, sell, or distribute the company’s product (Davis & Darling, 1996). This helps to reduce expenses and capital investments, keeping internal staff to a minimum. b) Why did Super Bakery’s management feel that it was necessary to install an ABC system? A major hurdle Super Bakery’s management had to face was controlling the functions outside of the company. Quality and cost were of major concern when outsourcing sections of the manufacturing and distribution process. A standard costing system......

Super Project

...Analysis After looking at the Super project of General Food and the alternative evaluations, we concluded that the project should make some changes. First, the agglomerator and building should be included in the project in order to reflect the true cost of the investment (Exhibit 5- page). According to Mr. Samberg’s suggestion, the minimum should be to take 453 million (half of an existing agglomerator and two thirds of an existing building) of agglomerator and the building should be record as an opportunity cost. Second, the cash flow from operation should be change due to the change on overhead expenses, test market expense, adjustment erosion, and depreciation (Exhibit 3- page). Normally, overhead expenses are not included but, due to this case, the project expects a $90 million per year increase in overhead expenses during the last 6 years. The test market expense is the sunk cost so it should not be included in the cash flow. Regardless of who produces the project, adjustment of erosion will always occur because the introduction of the new product in the market. In this case, the change in erosion should be included in the cash flow for operation because the project affects their other sales. Depreciation expense should change due to the change in agglomerate and building (Exhibit 2- page ). We needed to determine the correct allocation of depreciation. We calculated the depreciation rates by dividing the Depreciation Expense by the previous year’s Net Investment......
