...A group of a few women born in the second decade of the century might together illustrate the diversity of the twentieth-century novelist's interests. Elizabeth Taylor (1912-1975), the author the novels The Soul of Kindness and Blaming, is a refined stylist whose swift flashes of dialogue and reflection and deft sketches of the wider background give vitality to her portrayals of well-to-do family life in commuter land. Some of her later novels are In a Summer Season (1961), and The Wedding Group (1968.) Elizabeth Taylor has humour and compassion as well as disciplined artistry, and has logically been compared with Jane Austen. So has Barbara Pym (1913-1980) who tasted fame, sadly enough, only at the end of her life (her real name was Mary Crampton). Another restrained and perceptive artist, she is a master of J f ingenuous and candid dialogue and reflection which are resonant with comic overtones. Critics I called her "modern Jane Austin. Excellent Women (1952) and A Glass of Blessings (1958) were reprinted in the late 1970s when Philip Larkin and David Cecil drew attention to the quality of her neglected work. Later novels, The Sweet Dove Died (1978) and Quartet in Autumn (1978), are no less engaging in their blend of pathos and comedy. One might well put beside these two English writers the Irish writer Mary Lavin (1912-1996), whose short stories focus on the ups and downs of family life with quiet pathos and humour. Her novels, The House in Clewes Street......

Harrington Collection

...Analysis Of Harrington Collection Submitted by J. G. I. Factual Summary: 1. Harrington Collection, a large manufacturer and retailer of high-end women’s apparel faced declining sales and shifting consumer tastes, and the company needed to consider new strategies to compete in the women’s apparel industry. 2.

Each category targets customers with different needs and different price ranges, with haute couture and designer clothing ranging upwards from $10,000 and moderate to budget clothing as low as $50. 5.

The "Collection"

...REYES, Mark Emmanuel P. Feb 21, 2012 ------------------------------------------------- BS Business Econ 2011-34934 Comm 3 – Ms. Eileen Relao DUP play “Collection” The title was catchy for me. It does not provide enough information on what to expect in this play. It made the play interesting and that is why I became really excited to watch the play. When it started, I was confused for a minute. I saw that the Banaue Rice Terraces was being sold to the highest bidder of the auction. Every actor in the stage was very active. It started with a bang of acting talents being shown. I asked myself. What is happening? Is this for real? Who are these people in this auction? That was a very interesting start for me. I like the line of Carlo Vibal, the auctioneer, in the scene when the auction was finish and he was interrogated by Agustin Mendez, the student in his MA in Social Anthropology. His line said something like this “It is about finding the right buyer that will treasure it more than you do.” I felt that he has a good point. I also felt that showed some undeniable truth in life that money makes the world go around and some people will do everything to make them happy without taking into account that they are already stepping on other people. At that moment I felt a little angry on those people. I like the scene when Manolo Estancio, the celebrity auctioneer, Tatiana Olandrez, the international jeweler, and Alphonse, the creative genius were having a conversation......

Data Collection

...Data Collection QNT/351 July 10, 2014 There are many times when companies have to collect data to come to a conclusion about an issue. The data may be collected from their employers, their competition or their consumers. BIMS saw that there had been an average turnover that was larger then what the company had seen in the past. Human Resources decided that they would conduct a survey to see what had changed in the company from the employee’s point of view. They attached each survey to the pay checks to ensure that each person received one, and waited for the response. Overview of the Situation The issue presented by BIMS employee turnover was a problem because when a company has a high turnover they put more money into the hiring and training process of new employees. The purpose was to understand what had happened in the last four months that had causes the increase in turnovers. The research questions were based on employee satisfaction within their departments. The data collected was going to be used to aide in the hypothesis that the turnover rate had increased because employee’s morals had decreased ("Develop A Research Proposal", 2014). The Types of Data and How They Were Collected The data that was conducted in the BIMS, Inc. was an employee evaluation, which consisted of both quantitative and qualitative statistics. By giving employees self-assessment will help them provide the necessary......

Bose Real Inventor

...1 Jagadish Chandra Bose: The Real Inventor of Marconi’s Wireless Receiver Varun Aggarwal, Div. Of Electronics and Comm. Engg., NSIT, Delhi, India 1. Introduction The aim of the present article is to acquaint the younger generation that the real inventor of wireless was not Guglielmo Marconi (Italy), but Jagadish Chandra Bose (India). The classic paper of Dr. P. K. Bondopadhyay [1] published by the IEEE has now established this fact. The article is organised as follows. In the second section, the motivation of this article is discussed. In Section 3, the technical details of the experiment conducted by Marconi in the year 1901, where he claimed to receive trans-atlantic waves on a radio for the first time are given. Next, Section 4 discusses the controversy surrounding the experiment and provides substantial evidence that the receiving device was invented by J. C. Bose. Thereafter, in Section 5, the technical aspects of the receiving device and its working is discussed. Finally, Section 6 concludes the given report. 2. Motivation This article takes you into the past into the history of radio invention. In this section, I will like to discuss the motivation for choosing this topic. 1. The choice of this topic is apparently linked with the irritation of a student of electronics and communication engineering (studying in India) that the fact that Marconi’s wireless was actually invented by Sir J C Bose is not well-known among engineering students,......

Data Collection

...Basic Principles of Data Data collection is an important activity in every sector including the health sector. The basic principles of data collection include the acquisition of public health data and its legitimate use or disclosure. The data collection programs should also involve collecting minimal personal information to be applied in the surveys. The data collection programs should use strong and effective policies to ensure that privacy and confidentiality of personal data are not infringed (, 2015). The data collection activity should also ensure that they respect the rights of patients, individuals or even communities involved in the data collection. The data collection activity should ensure that the whole process upholds the desired level of quality. The period of reporting and presenting the results should also be predetermined in advance. Data collection should also ensure that the data is legitimately used and that it entails the creation of data-use agreements. The collected data should be kept securely and analyzed efficiently. The end users of the data should also ensure that the data is analyzed and recommendations made (, 2015). In the health sector, it is crucial to measure the performance of patient care and their services using the best methods and tools. It helps in establishing the effects of healthcare on the expected outcomes. The processes also assist in determining the level to which the health care aligns to the methods being......

Data Collection

...Sampling and Data Collection Plan Erin Kenerly, Vanneca Phelps, Dorothy Rae, Debra Simmons QNT 561 November 3rd, 2014 Kevin Masick In Team A’s scenario, the independent variable consists of the age group of respondents measured from Generation X,Y, and Baby Boomers, while the dependent variable measures the generated sales from each of the aforementioned groups. It is extremely important to use the proper population and determine the accurate size. Once the population has been identified it is then necessary to downsize the population into a specific sample group. Addressing the population, sample, validity, ethical concerns, and data collection will create a detailed plan in which to follow during the research process. Customers are the gauge and guide in any business therefore when conducting survey one must ensure that the information is accurate; and seeks to refute any opposing idea. Based on the finding management will be able to make decisions that derives from the customer base. The grass roots customers are the ones that will assist in getting the message out, the power of the consumer should never be taken for granted. Baby boomers are fiercely brand loyal and Drink Up became part of their identity. The soft drink was sold on the premise of making them happy, evoking a smile, it was the American way. Over the years cokes sales have been falling off due to their consumer base being more health conscious. According to (Esterl 2011) "About 60% of......

The Abilities of an American Inventor

...Running head: THE ABILITIES OF AN AMERCAN INVENTOR The Abilities of an American Inventor GEN/200 Alice McBride David Swensen University of Phoenix The Abilities of an American Inventor At first glance it appears as though Philo Farnsworth, at a very young age, developed a natural ability to understand complicated concepts. At 14 years of age, Philo envisioned a way to create the all electronic television. Later, at 21, he was able, with the help of his wife and her brother, to build all the components, and assemble the first television. The time in between these two events seems to point to something other than just technical ability. Philo was able to create and also recognize opportunities. To most people, this may be more important. Most people will probably not invent anything at all, let alone something that has had the impact on our lives that television has, but we can all look back on our lives, and see opportunity that we have missed, or maybe a time we did not put forth the effort we should have. Philo’s ability to seize an opportunity is something we can all learn to achieve (Encyclopedia of World Biography, Thomas Gale, Edition 1, 1998). Philo Farnsworth was born in Indian Creek, near Beaver Utah, on August 19th, 1906. There was no electricity where Philo lived. Philo’s father, Lewis Farnsworth, would often discuss the technical aspects of such devices as the......

Filipino Inventors: the Harsh Reality by Linewave

...the person and the invention. Why? You can easily claim you invented this, but no one will notice until it has become very useful. Even then, many inventors are still unknown. In order to receive claim and royalties from an invention, you must patent it to the government and show it to a noteworthy organization. Alas, there are a lot of “supposed” inventors of certain products. Stealing someone’s idea is as simple as taking it, patenting it, and marketing it to the public. But here, there are a lot of people who claim to have made famous products, yet they are not being recognized. Why? Because they didn’t invent it. Pride is good for a country, but claiming that a countryman invented another person’s product is a bad thing to do. Myths likes this thrive on people who are unaware, and they have gained notoriety after the birth of the internet and cellular phones. Spreading them has become easy, and many school books actually CREDIT these people as the true inventors. Doesn’t that seem like a slap to the face of the real inventors? To show you some examples, here are some “supposed” inventors.  Roberto Del Rosario, the “inventor” of the karaoke.  Armando Lite, inventor of the “Armalite” or M16.  Eduardo San Juan, inventor of the Moon Buggy. In truth, the three inventors are not real. The M16 was not named after Armando Lite, and the gun is not called “Armalite.” Armalite is actually ArmaLite, a small arms......
