A higher response rate can be obtained if follow-up questionnaires are sent, but this can add to the cost and time. However, some sociologists may choose to use questionnaires as there is no need to recruit and train interviewees thus saving costs. Another reason as to why some sociologists choose not to use questionnaires when conducting research is because of the fact that questionnaires are snapshots of social reality of the time when the respondents answer the questionnaires. This means that they fail to produce valid pictures as they do not capture how people’s attitudes can change over time. On the other hand, questionnaires tend to be used by sociologists as they provide less ethical issues than other research methods.
Voodoo Anyone? Christopher Warden breaks down economics into a fool proof explanation, and uses terms references which a dummy could understand. As I read this informative book I gathered an understanding for the way in which our economy works, as well as the unseen ways in which our government handles the issues that affect our everyday life. In the first chapter, the author discusses what prices are the difference between the price of things, and the cost of things. He breaks down what the stores charge us in order to sell the product at a price we will pay, so the store can still make a profit on the item.
The results of my IAT concluded that I have a moderate automatic preference for light skin compared to dark skin. While taking the test, I knew the response that I wanted to put but because of the switching around I would accidently press the wrong letter. I guess in my mind I was trying to move fast while keeping up with the constant change. I feel as though the test should've given a little to no preference result for me. My impression of the IAT is that it may be accurate, but it really depends on the person taking it.
Protein is in the acceptable macronutrient distribution, but the carbohydrate acceptable macronutrient is under. The total fat is way over acceptable macronutrient. I would give up most of my soda and try to cut back to one a day and try out some healthier snack food. Hopefully giving up my snacks and sodas intake would be enough to get my lipids into the recommended range. Raise my starch and eat more noodles and potatoes without the butter and salt.
According to the book “Dumping is a term apparently coined by Mother Jones magazine to refer to the practice of exporting to other countries products that have been banned or declared hazardous in the United States”. (Shaw, 2005) There are other sources for the meaning of dumping though. One of these can be found at stfrancis.edu, which says dumping is “when a foreign company sells their products or services in a market at a price which is below their cost of production in order to gain market share.” (Powers) With the first definition we can see that it’s morally wrong. You are selling products that have been proven to be bad for people to use. It doesn’t matter how much damage it could cause, you are intentionally harming people.
However problems could quickly occur if the budget is not controlled and monitored effectively. Poor cash flow is extremely likely to bring the outcome in Debenhams not been able to shelter costs which may lead to bankruptcy; in a circumstance where a business has a poor cash flow produced by more outflows than inflows. In a case of poor cash flow due to poor budgeting, the business would have to lease the products and gather unresolved payments in order for the cash flow to recover. I would suggest for Debenhams to make better use of its premises. For example other stores have restaurants or cafes maybe they could add one to theirs to attract more customers and make more money.
2. The challenge that I think will be more difficult for Walmart to overcome will be diversifying its top-management ranks within the company. I believe it will be more difficult because now that it has gotten out in the news that they aren’t as equal in their employment opportunities as they say less minorities and women will want to apply and try to get hired there because they themselves don’t want to be discriminated against. If less people apply there will be less to train and make their way up the ranks to top-management. The opposite might also happen and Walmart could get more diverse in their top-management but then the white men would start to claim that reverse discrimination is starting to happen.
And if you feel uncomfortable after wearing contact lenses, you have to remove them, and do all these processes over again. Therefore, if you are not used to wearing them, it might waste your time. Unlike eyeglasses, you can simply wear them without having any physical contacts with your eyes. All you have to do is to put the legs of eyeglasses on your ears, and make sure that the hinge is right on your nose, so you do not need to worry
It varies among products because some products may be more essential to the consumer. Products that are necessities or ‘need’ are more insensitive to price changes because no matter what happen, consumers would continue buying these products despite prices increases, even though, consumers might buy less, but overall, it’s least affected by these changes compared to the products that may not be necessary in daily life. Elasticity of demand for Californians for reduction in price from: I. £18 to £16 Price elasticity = %
Also if we were to continue to sell these materials we would also be going against Plato’s wishes. Plato wanted for people not to worry about being wealthier then another, this would not be possible if we had to purchase these scarce materials from other countries. Another reason I believe that Plato’s ideal society would not work is because I believe people are naturally selfish and we always want what is best for us. In my Economics class I have learned that when a person is in a group and is forced to make a decision he/she would choose the option that would benefit those most. If Plato’s ideal society was to be created people would continue to want what is best for them.
