The first marketing strategy the company used was selling their earth buddy product in roots and that turned out to be a hit, but they wanted more. So for their second product, the devil stick, they decided to do something a little different through the grassroots marketing campaign by gathering a group of students and sending them across North America, promoting their product at different events. This strategy was a bigger success. Therefore they continued this routine for their other products such as Air hogs and Mighty Beans in order to result with the same outcome as the Devil Sticks. Because they decided to utilize their past experience of sales of the Devil Sticks, they developed a routine to use the same strategy consistently with their newer products in order to achieve great success.
American Myth in the Western Film Stagecoach’s Dallas: America’s Sweetheart Many regard John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939) as the film that brought the Western genre back to life. The movie made John Wayne a star, and the racing zoom shot that introduces his character has been cited by film scholars and studied by directors as one of the iconic shots in movie storytelling. The film became the standard by which all subsequent Westerns would be compared to for years to come. It can be considered a classic western because it includes stock elements such as the character archetypes- the heroic cowboy, the damsel in distress, the loud and sloppy town drunk, etc.- but unlike many others in the genre, it went deeper to examine human nature with an emotional complexity that had not been seen in Western films before. Ford put these characters in the claustrophobic space of a stagecoach as it left civilization and reeled through the desert, and then turned these genre archetypes upside down.
Beer Game Reflection The BeerGame taught me a valuable lesson of never taking charge of a situation that I am not familiar with. Having organized a time and location for our group to meet, I naturally assumed control of the group by setting up the game and choosing the team name. I also took first pick in the roles and decided to be the producer, knowing that everything ultimately will stem from me. The other members of my group followed suite and chose their positions and so began week 1. Surprisingly for the first 16 weeks our group excelled in every position and made an overall profit of 900$, along with having positive stock and money in each of the four positions.

I could see in his eyes that he was excited for me; as excited as he would have been if he had made the shot. The rest of the afternoon was spent preparing the buck, talking about the shot with family and friends. At sixteen I had accomplished this on my own; taken the necessary steps to practice out of respect for the hunt, to prevent an animal from suffering. This had been the “perfect shot,” a moment that would never be repeated except in my memories. There will be other shots that hit with the same precision, but the moment will never be the same.

“Mary Poppins is a film rich in detail, but its universal appeal is due to the fact that it blends so many elements together.”3 This movie “became an instant, blockbuster hit, with thirteen Academy Award nominations.”4 Such awards were Best Actress Oscar, Best Film Editing Oscar, Best Music Scoring Oscar, Best Song Oscar, and Best Special Visual Effects Oscar. This movie is now over fifty years old and many agree that the history of cinema would not be the same without it. Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins is still a masterpiece today due to the extraordinary hard work of Walt Disney, the wonderful storyline implemented with the use of live action with interludes of animation, and the impeccable acting skills of Julie Andrews. As a young boy, Walt Disney absolutely adored drawing and did so, practically every chance he could. “Walt’s drawings sometimes got him in trouble in school, he would rather doodle than complete his school work.
