15.4 Descriptive Essay

Learning Objective

  1. Read an example of the descriptive rhetorical mode.

America’s Pastime

As the sun hits my face and I breathe in the fresh air, I temporarily forget that I am at a sporting event. But when I open my eyes and look around, I am reminded of all things American. From the national anthem to the international players on the field, all the sights and sounds of a baseball game come together like a slice of Americana pie.

First, the entrance turnstiles click and clank, and then a hallway of noise bombards me. All the fans voices coalesce in a chorus of sound, rising to a humming clamor. The occasional, “Programs, get your programs, here!” jumps out through the hum to get my attention. I navigate my way through the crowded walkways of the stadium, moving to the right of some people, to the left of others, and I eventually find the section number where my seat is located. As I approach my seat I hear the announcer’s voice echo around the ball park, “Attention fans. In honor of our country, please remove your caps for the singing of the national anthem.” His deep voice echoes around each angle of the park, and every word is heard again and again. The crowd sings and hums “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and I feel a surprising amount of national pride through the voices. I take my seat as the umpire shouts, “Play ball!” and the game begins.

In the fifth inning of the game, I decide to find a concessions stand. Few tastes are as American as hot dogs and soda pop, and they cannot be missed at a ball game. The smell of hot dogs carries through the park, down every aisle, and inside every concourse. They are always as unhealthy as possible, dripping in grease, while the buns are soft and always too small for the dog. The best way to wash down the Ball Park Frank is with a large soda pop, so I order both. Doing my best to balance the cold pop in one hand and the wrapped-up dog in the other, I find the nearest condiments stand to load up my hot dog. A dollop of bright green relish and chopped onions, along with two squirts of the ketchup and mustard complete the dog. As I continue the balancing act between the loaded hot dog and pop back to my seat, a cheering fan bumps into my pop hand. The pop splashes out of the cup and all over my shirt, leaving me drenched. I make direct eye contact with the man who bumped into me and he looks me in the eye, looks at my shirt, tells me how sorry he is, and then I just shake my head and keep walking. “It’s all just part of the experience,” I tell myself.

Before I am able to get back to my seat, I hear the crack of a bat, followed by an uproar from the crowd. Everyone is standing, clapping, and cheering. I missed a home run. I find my aisle and ask everyone to excuse me as I slip past them to my seat. “Excuse me. Excuse me. Thank you. Thank you. Sorry,” is all I can say as I inch past each fan. Halfway to my seat I can hear discarded peanut shells crunch beneath my feet, and each step is marked with a pronounced crunch.

When I finally get to my seat I realize it is the start of the seventh inning stretch. I quickly eat my hot dog and wash it down with what is left of my soda pop. The organ starts playing and everyone begins to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” While singing the song, putting my arms around friends and family with me, I watch all the players taking the field. It is wonderful to see the overwhelming amount of players on one team from around the world: Japan, the Dominican Republic, the United States, Canada, and Venezuela. I cannot help but feel a bit of national pride at this realization. Seeing the international representation on the field reminds me of the ways that Americans, though from many different backgrounds and places, still come together under common ideals. For these reasons and for the whole experience in general, going to a Major League Baseball game is the perfect way to glimpse a slice of Americana.

Write an essay with the title: The hailstorm.

I was hurrying as fast as I could, but my heavy school backpack dragged me slower. The air smelled fresh, with gust of damp wind, and the sky grew darker and darker. Yet it had a strange yellowish glow. As I turned into our street I heard it: a roaring and rattling, somewhere behind me, like marbles spilled on metal. Then it was on me: hail! The sound was of it drumming on the tin roofs all around.

Thousands of tiny ice bullets stung my head and face and shoulders, and the backs of my legs as I raced on, now bending over to protect myself. At last I made it inside and slammed the door behind me. The warmth of the dry air inside cuddled me, as I shivered in my wet uniform. I hauled off my bag, threw it down and ran to the window.

It was exciting! The stones, as big as marbles, pounded down on the tar road brick pathway and bounced up again, like shining popcorn. All normal sounds were muffled by the hail. Within minutes a magical carpet of whiteness lay over everything. Our suburb was transformed into an Antarctic scene. There was no-one out; not even a car drove past.

As suddenly as it arrived, the hailstorm passed on, and out of every house we ran to examine to grab up the hailstones, to crunch on their iciness, laugh and share their wonder. We threw ice-balls, slipped and skidded on the roads. Our fingers were cold as icicles themselves.

But, all too soon the ice began melting away, the sky lightened, sunshine shone through.

The magic was over, but we were still under its spell, laughing and playing in the growing puddles. Not everyone loved it – my uncle was furious with the hail; it dented his car. But for me, it was one of those special memories I’ll never forget.

Persuasive essay on modern technologies and the internet

  1. The rate of mass murders in educational institution increases owing to the popularity of computer games. While some consider them harmless, others think that they make kids aggressive.

      Hello there, Aisha
      Thanks for your attention to our resource. As to you current research, it was a great choice of a topic.
      First, you will need to take a firm stand. Then, do a research to find some stats supporting your position. For example, you may want to check the amount of hours spent online by married couples or the amount of breakups because of online behavior, jealousy etc. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us in live chat or even place an order.
      Good luck with your competition!

      If you have difficulties choosing a topic, it means you take it seriously. And it’s amazing. Try to choose something that really interests you. For instance , what was the topic of your previous debate with a friend? It could be a topic for your speech, too. One more way to find a topic you need is to visit http://www.debate.org/ You’ll access hundreds of topics all in one place. Or, browse our blog for more options and topics lists. Good luck!

      Hello there, Aisha
      Thanks for your attention to our resource. As to you current research, it was a great choice of a topic.
      First, you will need to take a firm stand. Then, do a research to find some stats supporting your position. For example, you may want to check the amount of hours spent online by married couples or the amount of breakups because of online behavior, jealousy etc. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us in live chat or even place an order.
      Good luck with your competition!

      If you have difficulties choosing a topic, it means you take it seriously. And it’s amazing. Try to choose something that really interests you. For instance , what was the topic of your previous debate with a friend? It could be a topic for your speech, too. One more way to find a topic you need is to visit http://www.debate.org/ You’ll access hundreds of topics all in one place. Or, browse our blog for more options and topics lists. Good luck!

100 Argumentative Essay Topics with Samples

English language classes usually require a lot of writing. When you’re a middle school student, you don’t feel the pressure. But high school and college students are assigned complex topics. They are rarely free to choose their own idea, so it makes the situation even more complicated. An argumentative essay should be based on three major set of skills of any good student:

  1. Research skills
  2. Writing skills
  3. Analytical skills

If one of these is your weak point, you would probably need online academic writing assistance. Anyway, you should try writing a persuasive paper on one of the chosen topics on your own. This is a good practice for your communication and research skills. Argumentative essays are assigned to train your debating abilities. This assignment has a great influence on how a student will perform or give a public speech later.

HOW TO SELECT DEBATABLE ARGUMENTATIVE TOPICS TO DISCUSS

You might think that it’s better when your teacher assigns a particular argumentative topic to you. Having a right to develop your own idea is always better. When working on the persuasive essay, a student has to collect all valuable and time-tested sources to prove his knowledge of the certain issue. You may be encouraged to use such primary sources as:

  • Textbooks
  • Books
  • Documentaries
  • Academic journals
  • Scientific magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Official reports

Even if you are an expert in a certain field, don’t hesitate to use and cite external sources. It will point to your ability to collect and select only the most relevant sources. Besides, direct and indirect quotes are needed to support your knowledge of academic writing style.

VALUABLE TIPS & SIGNS OF THE GREAT TOPIC IDEAS

If you wish everyone to read your piece with the bated breath, try to:

  1. Pick a topic that everyone is currently discussing. Pay attention to the rumours.
  2. Select a question an answer to which is still unknown to many people.
  3. Choose an audience that does not agree with your point.
  4. Decide on the problem on which everyone has a specific point of view.
  5. Choose an issue based on your own interests, but don’t go too far!

Here we have shared some of the most effective tips:

  • No obvious argumentative paper topics!
  • Do not stop on those topics that do not arise any arguments. Topics that state scientific facts proved by centuries do not work.
  • A debatable essay must focus on the critical issue which leads to the global conflicts.
  • Almost every second problem related to politics is a good choice. You may also write something about your school, college or university policies that annoy you or make students argue with their teachers and principals.
  • Skip topics that people tend to agree on.
  • At the same time, it is better to pass by argumentative essay topics connected with religion, gender, race, and other sensitive episodes of human life. Otherwise, your subjective opinion may be graded subjectively.
  • It is better to write your essay following APA style. You may read how to format academic papers in APA here .

Remember: the world is not black-and-white. There are always two sides of the coin. So, even if you’re pretty sure in your claim, and the majority of people tend to support it, consider the arguments of the opposing side. Only then your argumentative paper will be graded respectively high.

As you can see, the procedure is everywhere the same. But the idea is to choose the most exciting argumentative paper topics in order to impress both your audience and your teacher. It’s like a competition, where the highest grade is your prize. Whenever you need immediate help with your assignment, turn to the professional writing service which can compose an argumentative essay on any topics in several hours.

  • Writing a draft
  • Writing compare and contrast essay itself
  • Editing
  • Revising (at least twice)

101 Argumentative Essay Topics Recommended by Top College Tutors

“Is after-class homework harmful or useful?” That is how a good argumentative paper topic may sound.

Argumentative essay is one more type of college paper. Students might be assigned it as part of their homework or even in-class activity. Argumentative papers exist to check student’s English and ability to think critically. Another reason is to see how well students argue on different views and demonstrate knowledge of the studied subject.

GET PROMPT ACADEMIC SOLUTIONS

Have a look at this article to understand teacher’s grading rubric better. Find a list of debatable essay topics divided into several different categories below.

Ways to Choose Argumentative Essay Topics

There are a lot of argumentative topics to come up with in the age of political debates, economical movements, and technological progress. Picking the subject is one of the most responsible stages (unless your teacher assigns his own subject to cover). Deciding on your topic is not that easy.

It is recommended to choose rather contradictive topics when writing a critical paper. The reader should be impressed by the way you defend your ideas. It is recommended to avoid argument essay topics on moral issues because they do not support logical discussion. Recent argumentative essay topics which are relevant to society will do.

A debatable paper must contain both analysis and fair criticism of various problems. Make sure each time you want to say something against one’s claim, you need solid arguments. Otherwise, your paper won’t persuade your teacher. The lack of good support sources will result in a lower grade.

Those who try to obtain their business administration degrees (BBA or MBA) must evaluate and analyze the efficiency of some marketing or HRM tools to discover the most effective approaches. Potential nurses and healthcare experts must check and discuss the efficiency of treatment.

The second thing you should take care of once you decide on the title is to keep in mind five types of argument claims.

Argumentative essay from NickyReich

The Principles of Formatting Academic Papers

While working, mention all applied sources separately. Take notes each time you decide to add a new quote: later, this information will help to create Bibliography list much faster. Keep in mind that proper formatting is 1/3 of your grade! Thus, it is important to read corresponding formatting guide.

In contrast to middle and high school students, college students apply a greater variety of academic writings styles.

  • MLA (Modern Language Association)
  • APA (American Psychologic Association)
  • Harvard
  • Chicago
  • Harvard
  • Oxford
  • Vancouver
  • IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)
  • ACS (American Chemical Society)

APA is often applied to format the argumentative essay. It also depends on the particular college subject. APA is applied in Psychology, Philosophy, and Social Sciences while History students must be well-aware of Harvard format. Theology, Anthropology, and Religious Studies classes involve Turabian/Chicago style. Computer Science researchers apply IEEE referencing style while Chemistry students are into ACS. Teachers assign the necessary format, but keep in mind these tips if they don’t.

Before writing your piece, conduct additional research on academic paper formatting. It is better to use templates as they include all necessary formatting elements. Control the margins, font, font’s size, indents, and other features in your Word document. Each style is different in two ways. First, in-text citations may be either numerical or author-date style. Second, every style has a unique approach to referencing.

Young writers may try simple online citation generators which are usually free of charge. Add the details on your selected sources to get automatically generated references.

Good Argumentative Essay Topics & Ideas

Have a look at how to come up with an essay topic! It is important to focus only on one subject instead of involving several ideas and make readers confused. Read the advice from educational expert carefully.

“A clear, firm, and debatable thesis is the goal of an argumentative paper. It is impossible to cover several issues at a time as your audience may get lost and lose interest in reading. Besides, any academic paper is limited in length: the more issues your try to cover, the more extra information comes up. I would recommend avoiding argumentative essay topic ideas associated with national/global problems. They usually require more than a few pages. If you choose a broad issue, narrow it down by tossing away details such as descriptions and useless examples.

There are four main characteristics of good argumentative essay topics. They are always CDRM.

C – current

D – debatable

R – researchable

M – manageable

Finally, great argument essay topics are always passionate!”

Tara Christianson, Yale’s Literature and Arts Professor

Tips on Writing Powerful Argumentative Essay

Make a candy out of your paper by following expert recommendations!

  • Write about different aspects of contemporary life. Do not cover fantastic issues in an argumentative essay as you must sound realistic by providing real-life examples. That’s why choosing social media, sports, politics, gender issues, and school/college themes would work.
  • Start with a great hook to capture attention. It can be a rhetorical question, literary quote, or else, but it is important not to use more than one hook in your paper. Mind this professional advice when choosing the best hooking sentence.
  • There is no need to include a first-person (“I,” “we”) unless required by instructions. Still, students are encouraged to share their own opinions.
  • It is important to read all relevant literature to add ideas that oppose personal opinion. To debate fairly, the evidence must be taken from the credible sources only! Exclude topics that do not have opposing opinions.
  • Feel free to create an original topic, but you may also use numerous lists of prepared themes.
  • Try to sound unbiased when protecting your point of view. The following elements will support your research:
    • clear criteria
    • judgments
    • expert feedback
    • supportive arguments
  • End up your text with a strong call-to-action (CTA) . Unlike in marketing, your goal is to sell your article. In other words, make the reader want to discuss the problem even once he’s done with reading. Motivate your audience to continue the research.
  • Don’t forget to refer to this article to recall the best argumentative essay ideas chosen by many successful students throughout the world!

Take into consideration that good argumentative essay topics should concern a conflict that urges many discussions in society. It should be an important and arguable topic.
When opting for an argumentative essay topic, find out whether you will be able to find proper factual information to support your arguments.

Under the conditions of tight deadlines, you need to make quick, yet well-thought decisions. All essay topics have their advantages and disadvantages. If you can’t select the topic among several choices, compare them by defining the pros and cons of each.

Before presenting a certain argument, make sure it is strong enough to convince the reader. Each argument should be supported with evidence consisting of facts, stats, and so on.

Ask yourself the question: “Do I care about this issue?” That way, you’ll understand whether the subject is truly interesting for you. If it is, you are likely to perform better with your task.

A Slow Brew: What Starbucks Teaches Us About the Importance of Innovation and Timing

Starbucks Innovation

Timing. It can be the impetuous for the greatest, most serendipitous of love stories—the perfect Craigslist Missed Connection “How We Met” story later memorialized in the New York Time’s “Vows” section. Or, the most tragic, ill-timed ones—like all that tragic poison-drinking and dagger-stabbing by star-crossed (and horrifically-timed) lovers in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” It’s not just in the battlefield of love that timing plays a heavy hand in destiny. The same goes for the effect of timing on business innovation . The right timing can catapult your business to great heights; but by the same token, a mistimed venture can turn into nothing but a money-sucking, time-wasting failure.

All we’ve got is the beans! The Humble Beginnings Era (1971-1987)

Long before there was seemingly a Starbucks on every corner and the phrase “Iced Venti Decay Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte with two extra shots (please!)” was a part of everyday vernacular, a coffee was something brewed at home or ordered with breakfast at the diner or café. No fuss. No infinite options. Just black, with milk, or with cream. And for typically less than a buck. The commercialized-caffeine juggernaut that we think of today when we think of Starbucks didn’t start out that way.

The Starbucks story began in 1971.1 Three friends, inspired by a mutual love of fine coffee and another gourmet coffee entrepreneur, Alfred Peet, opened a tiny storefront in the Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA. The first Starbucks store didn’t even sell coffee by the cup, but rather sold only whole-roasted coffee beans. Even though the timing was all wrong—coffee consumption had been on a downward consumption trend since the early 1960s and Seattle was floundering during the Boeing Bust (the tough economic times that ensued after Boeing, Seattle’s largest employer, cut 60,000 jobs and other industries were in similar slumps). Who would have thought nearly 45 years later, Starbucks would boast 23,043 retail store locations in 68 countries2 and have a whopping enterprise value of $79.99 billion3 (as of February 10, 2016). Answer: it would take a true visionary to see this future.

Starbucks_stores_graph

(Enter Howard Schultz to the scene; [the] stage [is] right!)

Howard Schultz, current chairman and CEO of Starbucks, had a hunch. Back in 1981, when Shultz was working for a company that made plastic products, he astutely noticed that a small Seattle coffee store was purchasing more of a particular drip coffeemaker than mega-department store Macy’s was. He decided to investigate this anomaly further, even flying to Seattle to meet with Starbucks’ three founders and learning about their passion for coffee. In Schultz’s book, Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time , he describes what he felt flying back to New York after his first visit to Starbucks in Seattle:

“I believe in destiny. In Yiddish, they call it bashert. At that moment, flying 35,000 feet above the earth, I could feel the tug of Starbucks. There was something magic about it, a passion and authenticity I had never experienced in business. Maybe, just maybe, I could be part of that magic.”4

Timing Lesson No. 1: Sure, timing is a little part luck a lot part preparation, but at the root of every innovation success story, whether it’s a slowly-brewed success or an instant hit, is an intrepid spirit. You’ve got to believe in the magic of your idea!

A year later, after travelling abroad and falling in love with Italy’s idea of the coffee-bar, with all its ambiance and sense of community, Shultz came back to the states and started working for Starbucks. However, the original Starbucks founders were not similarly captivated by the idea of moving Starbucks from the coffee bean business into the coffee bar business. Accordingly (and in order to stay true to his innovative vision of “what Starbucks could be’), he left the company and opened his own Il Giornale coffee shops. As he immersed himself in the coffee bar business, he became increasingly convinced that he wanted to purchase the original Starbucks company and give the Starbucks name to his growing arsenal of Il Giornale coffee shops. In 1987, he managed to secure enough financing ($3.8 million) to buy Starbucks.5

Timing Lesson No. 2: The naysayers and narrow-minded might harp on the point that “timing is everything”; “the current climate isn’t the time to start anything new”; or “this is a been-there-done-that idea; there’s no room in the market for innovation or anything new.” But not Shultz. He knew there were local coffee bars all over the states, but none that offered the coffee-bar experience he’d seen abroad: a special type of gathering place that was neither quite your home or quite your office—the idea of the “third place.” Whereas others would have turned their back on the idea, citing too much commodization or competition in the coffee shop business category, Shultz dared to disrupt (and by disrupt, I mean emphatically shake up) the status quo.

Timing Lesson No. 3: The right timing won’t just magically “bing” as an appointment on your personal and business calendar. Sometimes you have to create your own “right timing”; see opportunity where others don’t; be a disrupter and make your own time; ignore the cynics; and ultimately create your own business’s destiny. When it comes to innovation in business , this is known as disruptive innovation: “a term of art coined by Clayton Christensen, [which] describes a process by which a product or service takes root initially in simple applications at the bottom of a market and then relentlessly moves up market, eventually displacing established competitors.”6 This disruptive innovation concept is discussed in both of Robert Brands’s business entrepreneurship books : Robert’s Rules of Innovation: A 10-Step Program for Corporate Survival  and the newly published, on December 8, 2015, Robert’s Rules of Innovation II: The Art of Implementation .

From a Single Bean Grew a Beanstalk: The Private Company Era (1987-1992)

As a private company between 1987-1982, Starbucks opened 150 new stores in five years, which surpassed its 1987 business plan objective of 125 new stores.7 Schultz’s business plan had predicted that there would be losses in Starbucks early years; and he was right: Starbucks posted losses of $330,000 in 1987, $764,000 in 1988, and $1.2 million in 1989.8 In 1990, Starbucks finally boasted a profit. Despite being in the red those initial years, Starbucks was still able to raise the needed funds from venture capital financing. When board members tensely questioned Howard Schultz about the company’s lack of profitability, he had to find a way to justify those losses to the board and prove that they were necessary for an investment strategy.

He told the board, “We’re going to keep losing money until we can do three things. We have to attract a management team well beyond our expansion needs. We have to build a world-class roasting facility. And we need a computer information system sophisticated enough to keep track of sales in hundreds and hundreds of stores.”9

Timing Lesson No. 4: Patience. Patience. Patience. You need to patient about seeing profits while you put in the necessary infrastructure to support continued growth well into the future. A “stitch-in-time-saves-nine” philosophy.

Timing Lesson No. 5: Stop watching the clock. Don’t be so short-sighted. A large part of Starbucks success can be attributed to the fact that Schultz was not in it for a short-term profit, but rather took a long-term view of his business and made his business decisions in view of that.

The IPO-Whoa! Era (1992)

The Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ stock symbol: SBUX) had its initial public offering on June 26, 1992 (initial stock price was $17 per share) and has proved to be one of the most successful examples of a mid-sized, reasonably-priced business coming to the public market and then performing exceptionally well for its shareholders.10 Amazingly, most of the shareholders’ gains have been through price appreciation since Starbucks didn’t start paying out a dividend until 2010 (although they have had six, 2-for-1 stock splits since its 1992 IPO).11

Imagine this “hit the jackpot” stock investment scenario: on the day of Starbucks June 26, 1992 IPO, you invested $1000 in Starbucks stock. As of October 31, 2015, your initial $1000 investment would be worth $230,845 (this takes into account the six 2-1 stock splits and cumulative cash dividends since 2010). Most likely, this figure will continue to expand as Starbucks expands, raises prices, and buys back stock in the future. This represents an annual growth rate of 26.68 percent, which basically crushes almost everything that has come or gone since this Starbucks IPO.12 In other words, you would have hit the stock market lottery. Do you know how many $4+ fancy Starbucks latte beverages you could buy with your earnings? How about a “Cheers!” to that giant cup of joe? Or, better yet, to that giant cup of dough you have!

Trouble Abrewing: Starbucks Late 2000s Failures and The Great Recession

In 2007, Starbucks was headed down a slippery path to costly failures, for both reasons of the company’s own doings and outside factors—mainly that the country was about to snowball into a massive economic downtown known as The Great Recession. The Great Recession refers to the U.S. recession, which officially lasted from December 2007 to June 2009, and the ensuing global recession in 2009.13 A cup of pricey Starbucks coffee was going to become a luxury many had to nix from their budgets.

But the shift wasn’t all due to the customers tightening their purse strings, there was also a concurrent customer shift in the way customers viewed Starbucks. Many consumers now viewed the coffee conglomerate as a giant, money-hungry company that was putting hardworking mom-and-pop coffee stores out of business and charging too much for their products. Products that, according to their already cash-strapped customers, also tasted sub-par too.

In addition to mediocre, overpriced coffee beverages, Starbucks had become offering an increased number of non-coffee product offerings (i.e., music CDs) and got mixed in with the entertainment business as studios would pay Starbucks to promote their new releases. Schultz, as he discusses in his book Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life without Losing Its Soul, would ultimately see that this foray into entertainment industry as such: “while it had its upside [looked great on company’s Profit and Loss statements; large gross profit margin]”, he ultimately recognized that it “was another side of hubris born of a sense of invincibility.”14

Starbucks began to fail itself. The following are some examples of how Schultz began to fix it:15

  • A 180 shift in priorities; had to completely rework its business growth strategies
  • Recognized that the massive number of stores was causing cannibalization; made the difficult decision to shut down 600 underperforming stores
  • Fixing the coffee-taste problems: on one day, he closed 7100 stores to retrain baristas
  • Improved the customer experience by focusing on the customer; launched Facebook and Twitter profiles and a site where customers could submit and vote on ideas
  • Acquired public goodwill when it held its 10,000 person leadership conference in post-Katrina New Orleans, bringing badly needed revenue into the dilapidated city
  • Taking pundits by surprise, Starbucks finally recorded growth in earnings in Q3 of 2009, earned the Zagat rating for best tasting coffee, and had one of the most popular corporate Facebook pages of the time period

Timing Lesson No. 6: In order to succeed, you have to be open to trying new things and sometimes failing so that you can learn from your mistakes and ultimately get stronger for the future. This idea of failing can be analogous to the concept of antibodies and adaptive immunity in the body. Put a little bit of the bad germs in the body and then give the body time to adapt and remember these germs that have previously infected the body. When they try to infect the body again, the body’s next trained response is rapid, accurate and effective.

Present Day Status

Starbucks used to be considered an upscale brand; now it’s considered too popular to be cool as its biggest competitors are the pedestrian Dunkin’ Donuts and McDonalds/McCafé. Despite its high price point, many tastemakers believe Starbucks beverages and the surrounding company image are too “basic”, meaning they are too closely associated with mass consumerism. A much cooler, hipper coffee brand would be Blue Bottle Coffee, which just raised $25 million for expansion. Since widespread popularity can be the kiss of death for a brand that wants to be perceived as unique and upscale, Starbucks has had to be aware of its place in the market and make cultural relevance their priority. Starbucks has tried to increase their cultural relevance with cold-brewed coffee and almond milk offerings, a partnership with hipper Evolution Fresh cold-pressed juices, special reserve coffee beans, and revamping their food offerings through their acquisition of the La Boulange bakery.

Timing Lesson No. 7: As times and tastes and “what’s hip” changes, a company has to be willing to innovate within their brand proposition. Innovation in business means you are willing and able to try new things knowing full well that sometimes there will be failure, but overall these failures will teach you something and leave your company stronger than before.

The Starbucks story shares lessons in the power of innovation built on best practices and a hefty respect for the interconnectedness of timing and innovation in business. As innovation coach Robert Brands says, “the difference between a great idea and a so-so concept” is in the timing. To learn more about the importance timing plays in the innovation and implementation process, check out check out the innovation books Robert’s Rules of Innovation: A 10-Step Program for Corporate Survival and Robert’s Rules of Innovation II: The Art of Implementation (available since December 8, 2015).

  2. Costa Coffee in the U.K. ( http://www.costa.co.uk/ ) is much more fun than Starbucks. They have a nice range of typically English sandwiches – – and no concerns about listeria.

A Slow Brew: What Starbucks Teaches Us About the Importance of Innovation and Timing

Starbucks Innovation

Timing. It can be the impetuous for the greatest, most serendipitous of love stories—the perfect Craigslist Missed Connection “How We Met” story later memorialized in the New York Time’s “Vows” section. Or, the most tragic, ill-timed ones—like all that tragic poison-drinking and dagger-stabbing by star-crossed (and horrifically-timed) lovers in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” It’s not just in the battlefield of love that timing plays a heavy hand in destiny. The same goes for the effect of timing on business innovation . The right timing can catapult your business to great heights; but by the same token, a mistimed venture can turn into nothing but a money-sucking, time-wasting failure.

All we’ve got is the beans! The Humble Beginnings Era (1971-1987)

Long before there was seemingly a Starbucks on every corner and the phrase “Iced Venti Decay Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte with two extra shots (please!)” was a part of everyday vernacular, a coffee was something brewed at home or ordered with breakfast at the diner or café. No fuss. No infinite options. Just black, with milk, or with cream. And for typically less than a buck. The commercialized-caffeine juggernaut that we think of today when we think of Starbucks didn’t start out that way.

The Starbucks story began in 1971.1 Three friends, inspired by a mutual love of fine coffee and another gourmet coffee entrepreneur, Alfred Peet, opened a tiny storefront in the Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA. The first Starbucks store didn’t even sell coffee by the cup, but rather sold only whole-roasted coffee beans. Even though the timing was all wrong—coffee consumption had been on a downward consumption trend since the early 1960s and Seattle was floundering during the Boeing Bust (the tough economic times that ensued after Boeing, Seattle’s largest employer, cut 60,000 jobs and other industries were in similar slumps). Who would have thought nearly 45 years later, Starbucks would boast 23,043 retail store locations in 68 countries2 and have a whopping enterprise value of $79.99 billion3 (as of February 10, 2016). Answer: it would take a true visionary to see this future.

Starbucks_stores_graph

(Enter Howard Schultz to the scene; [the] stage [is] right!)

Howard Schultz, current chairman and CEO of Starbucks, had a hunch. Back in 1981, when Shultz was working for a company that made plastic products, he astutely noticed that a small Seattle coffee store was purchasing more of a particular drip coffeemaker than mega-department store Macy’s was. He decided to investigate this anomaly further, even flying to Seattle to meet with Starbucks’ three founders and learning about their passion for coffee. In Schultz’s book, Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time , he describes what he felt flying back to New York after his first visit to Starbucks in Seattle:

“I believe in destiny. In Yiddish, they call it bashert. At that moment, flying 35,000 feet above the earth, I could feel the tug of Starbucks. There was something magic about it, a passion and authenticity I had never experienced in business. Maybe, just maybe, I could be part of that magic.”4

Timing Lesson No. 1: Sure, timing is a little part luck a lot part preparation, but at the root of every innovation success story, whether it’s a slowly-brewed success or an instant hit, is an intrepid spirit. You’ve got to believe in the magic of your idea!

A year later, after travelling abroad and falling in love with Italy’s idea of the coffee-bar, with all its ambiance and sense of community, Shultz came back to the states and started working for Starbucks. However, the original Starbucks founders were not similarly captivated by the idea of moving Starbucks from the coffee bean business into the coffee bar business. Accordingly (and in order to stay true to his innovative vision of “what Starbucks could be’), he left the company and opened his own Il Giornale coffee shops. As he immersed himself in the coffee bar business, he became increasingly convinced that he wanted to purchase the original Starbucks company and give the Starbucks name to his growing arsenal of Il Giornale coffee shops. In 1987, he managed to secure enough financing ($3.8 million) to buy Starbucks.5

Timing Lesson No. 2: The naysayers and narrow-minded might harp on the point that “timing is everything”; “the current climate isn’t the time to start anything new”; or “this is a been-there-done-that idea; there’s no room in the market for innovation or anything new.” But not Shultz. He knew there were local coffee bars all over the states, but none that offered the coffee-bar experience he’d seen abroad: a special type of gathering place that was neither quite your home or quite your office—the idea of the “third place.” Whereas others would have turned their back on the idea, citing too much commodization or competition in the coffee shop business category, Shultz dared to disrupt (and by disrupt, I mean emphatically shake up) the status quo.

Timing Lesson No. 3: The right timing won’t just magically “bing” as an appointment on your personal and business calendar. Sometimes you have to create your own “right timing”; see opportunity where others don’t; be a disrupter and make your own time; ignore the cynics; and ultimately create your own business’s destiny. When it comes to innovation in business , this is known as disruptive innovation: “a term of art coined by Clayton Christensen, [which] describes a process by which a product or service takes root initially in simple applications at the bottom of a market and then relentlessly moves up market, eventually displacing established competitors.”6 This disruptive innovation concept is discussed in both of Robert Brands’s business entrepreneurship books : Robert’s Rules of Innovation: A 10-Step Program for Corporate Survival  and the newly published, on December 8, 2015, Robert’s Rules of Innovation II: The Art of Implementation .

From a Single Bean Grew a Beanstalk: The Private Company Era (1987-1992)

As a private company between 1987-1982, Starbucks opened 150 new stores in five years, which surpassed its 1987 business plan objective of 125 new stores.7 Schultz’s business plan had predicted that there would be losses in Starbucks early years; and he was right: Starbucks posted losses of $330,000 in 1987, $764,000 in 1988, and $1.2 million in 1989.8 In 1990, Starbucks finally boasted a profit. Despite being in the red those initial years, Starbucks was still able to raise the needed funds from venture capital financing. When board members tensely questioned Howard Schultz about the company’s lack of profitability, he had to find a way to justify those losses to the board and prove that they were necessary for an investment strategy.

He told the board, “We’re going to keep losing money until we can do three things. We have to attract a management team well beyond our expansion needs. We have to build a world-class roasting facility. And we need a computer information system sophisticated enough to keep track of sales in hundreds and hundreds of stores.”9

Timing Lesson No. 4: Patience. Patience. Patience. You need to patient about seeing profits while you put in the necessary infrastructure to support continued growth well into the future. A “stitch-in-time-saves-nine” philosophy.

Timing Lesson No. 5: Stop watching the clock. Don’t be so short-sighted. A large part of Starbucks success can be attributed to the fact that Schultz was not in it for a short-term profit, but rather took a long-term view of his business and made his business decisions in view of that.

The IPO-Whoa! Era (1992)

The Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ stock symbol: SBUX) had its initial public offering on June 26, 1992 (initial stock price was $17 per share) and has proved to be one of the most successful examples of a mid-sized, reasonably-priced business coming to the public market and then performing exceptionally well for its shareholders.10 Amazingly, most of the shareholders’ gains have been through price appreciation since Starbucks didn’t start paying out a dividend until 2010 (although they have had six, 2-for-1 stock splits since its 1992 IPO).11

Imagine this “hit the jackpot” stock investment scenario: on the day of Starbucks June 26, 1992 IPO, you invested $1000 in Starbucks stock. As of October 31, 2015, your initial $1000 investment would be worth $230,845 (this takes into account the six 2-1 stock splits and cumulative cash dividends since 2010). Most likely, this figure will continue to expand as Starbucks expands, raises prices, and buys back stock in the future. This represents an annual growth rate of 26.68 percent, which basically crushes almost everything that has come or gone since this Starbucks IPO.12 In other words, you would have hit the stock market lottery. Do you know how many $4+ fancy Starbucks latte beverages you could buy with your earnings? How about a “Cheers!” to that giant cup of joe? Or, better yet, to that giant cup of dough you have!

Trouble Abrewing: Starbucks Late 2000s Failures and The Great Recession

In 2007, Starbucks was headed down a slippery path to costly failures, for both reasons of the company’s own doings and outside factors—mainly that the country was about to snowball into a massive economic downtown known as The Great Recession. The Great Recession refers to the U.S. recession, which officially lasted from December 2007 to June 2009, and the ensuing global recession in 2009.13 A cup of pricey Starbucks coffee was going to become a luxury many had to nix from their budgets.

But the shift wasn’t all due to the customers tightening their purse strings, there was also a concurrent customer shift in the way customers viewed Starbucks. Many consumers now viewed the coffee conglomerate as a giant, money-hungry company that was putting hardworking mom-and-pop coffee stores out of business and charging too much for their products. Products that, according to their already cash-strapped customers, also tasted sub-par too.

In addition to mediocre, overpriced coffee beverages, Starbucks had become offering an increased number of non-coffee product offerings (i.e., music CDs) and got mixed in with the entertainment business as studios would pay Starbucks to promote their new releases. Schultz, as he discusses in his book Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life without Losing Its Soul, would ultimately see that this foray into entertainment industry as such: “while it had its upside [looked great on company’s Profit and Loss statements; large gross profit margin]”, he ultimately recognized that it “was another side of hubris born of a sense of invincibility.”14

Starbucks began to fail itself. The following are some examples of how Schultz began to fix it:15

  • A 180 shift in priorities; had to completely rework its business growth strategies
  • Recognized that the massive number of stores was causing cannibalization; made the difficult decision to shut down 600 underperforming stores
  • Fixing the coffee-taste problems: on one day, he closed 7100 stores to retrain baristas
  • Improved the customer experience by focusing on the customer; launched Facebook and Twitter profiles and a site where customers could submit and vote on ideas
  • Acquired public goodwill when it held its 10,000 person leadership conference in post-Katrina New Orleans, bringing badly needed revenue into the dilapidated city
  • Taking pundits by surprise, Starbucks finally recorded growth in earnings in Q3 of 2009, earned the Zagat rating for best tasting coffee, and had one of the most popular corporate Facebook pages of the time period

Timing Lesson No. 6: In order to succeed, you have to be open to trying new things and sometimes failing so that you can learn from your mistakes and ultimately get stronger for the future. This idea of failing can be analogous to the concept of antibodies and adaptive immunity in the body. Put a little bit of the bad germs in the body and then give the body time to adapt and remember these germs that have previously infected the body. When they try to infect the body again, the body’s next trained response is rapid, accurate and effective.

Present Day Status

Starbucks used to be considered an upscale brand; now it’s considered too popular to be cool as its biggest competitors are the pedestrian Dunkin’ Donuts and McDonalds/McCafé.

Charles Dickens' Hard Times Essay

Charles Dickens’ Hard Times

Charles Dickens’s novel Hard Times critiques the use of extreme utilitarianism as an acceptable means to governing a society in which citizens are able to lead happy, productive, flourishing lives. “Just the facts,”19th century English utilitarianism argued, are all one needs to flourish. Those answers that we can arrive at by way of mathematical, logical reasoning are all needed to live a full human life. Hard Times shows however that a “just the facts” philosophy creates a community inhospitable to the needs of one another, a society nearly void of human compassion, and one lacking in morality. Underlying the novel’s argument is the Aristotelian concept that the primary purpose of government is to

A man of realities. A man of facts and calculations…With a rule and a pair of scales, and the multiplication table always in his pocket, sir, ready to weigh and measure any parcel of human nature, and tell you exactly what it comes to. It is a mere question of figures… (6)
Even the cloistered and mousy Mrs. Gradgrind knows “there is something – not an ology at all that [Gradgrind] has missed or forgotten” (152). In her essay “The Literary Imagination in Public
Life” Martha C. Nussbaum writes that the “missing” element in Mr. Gradgrind’s political-economic philosophy is the acknowledgment of life’s qualitative dimension (431). Exchanging the qualitative for the quantitative, the economic utilitarian measures life in statistical terms. Utilitarianism forbids the concept of human complexity to enter its fundamentally formulaic approach to life. Thus, Cissy Jupe is not Cissy Jupe, but “Girl number twenty,” a label that rigidly defines her as a commodity. Even the town bureaucrats are subjected to their method of numerical labeling – bodies number one through four all agree that no one should wonder (41-42).

As categorizing citizens numerically strips Cissy Jupe and others of their distinctive human qualities, Nussbaum argues that it equally creates the possibility of over-generalizing information about individuals which results in imprecise conclusions on the true nature of people. Accordingly, before Louisa visited Stephen’s home, she knew of the working

There is no harm in taking professional help with report writing if you find that you can’t complete the task within the deadline or you have doubt in your own knowledge.

An Ideal Report Writing

Any report needs to be full of information on the given subject matter. Unlike other types of writings, the readers expect to get some relevant knowledge from a report. At the same time, they should be kept attached to the reading from the beginning until the end of the paper. So, an ideal report needs to be informative and interesting simultaneously.

What is the Basic Structure of a Report?

Types of reports vary greatly depending on the stream of study, i.e. a report on some environmental topics will be different from a report on the target market analysis. However, in general, following aspects are inevitable in all types of reports:

  • Title page: This page only contains the title of the report and its writers
  • Abstract: Next to the title page, the writer needs to write an abstract of the whole paper. It is written in 200-300 words. It contains the whole report in a summary form.
  • Table of content (TOC): It contains all major headings and subheading with the page number where they could be found.
  • Introduction: It described the necessity of the report. By reading it, the reader will come to know about the analytical procedure that you have adopted to work on the topic.
  • Main body: Needless to say, it is the major part of a report writing. Here, you describe the full topic and analyze the topic as the guidelines. It is further divided into several headings and subheadings.
  • Conclusion: It is the part of a report where you need to suggest something as per your analysis in the main body.
  • Recommendation: Here you need to draw a course of action depending on your conclusion. This part may not be necessary for many reports.
  • Reference: You need to write down all the references you have used to write the report. The referencing style should follow the guidelines.
  • Appendices: Any information in form of chart, table, image, etc. are to be placed in this part but in the main body proper index is to be maintained.

How to assess the demand of the professor or examiner?

In a report writing, the guidelines play a major role. However, you can assess the demand or expectation of the examiner just by answering the following questions:

  • What is the purpose of the report? Just think if it is a real-world situation then what this report will accomplish?
  • What information does the reader want from this report? A report is meant to deliver some important data or information regarding the subject matter. So, if it is a real-world situation, then what kinds of information will make the reader informed regarding the topic?
  • What is the purpose of the report? Once again, you need to assume the real-work What purpose will this report meet?

Answering this question correctly will help you to write an impeccable report in a correct format.

Report writing

 

The following information gives some general information about the structure and contents of report writing at university.

As there are many different types of report that you may be asked to compile, this page gives general information about the standard contents of reports.

Do check with your lecturer/tutor about the specific contents of any report that you must write.

Why write a report?

A report provides clearly organised information and/or data about a situation or problem under investigation.

The information/data may come from your experience, your reading, your research, experiments or measurements conducted in a laboratory or out in the field.

Your assignment might specify the type of audience for your report – e.g. non-specialist readers, specialists in your field of study. If unsure, clarify with your lecturer.

Knowing your audience will determine how much information and how much context you need to provide, and the choice of technical and non-technical language in your writing.

 

Typical report structure

 

alt text

Abstract and executive summary

See details how to write an  abstract and executive summary .

Introduction

  • The introduction provides an overview of the report.

  • Describe your aims and objectives explicitly, and the context of the problem or situation.

  • If relevant, indicate the scope or limitations of your investigation.

  • If necessary, provide a brief historical background (with subheadings) of significant events leading up to the present investigation.

  • If the explanation of the context is lengthy, you may want to make it a separate section and call it Background/Context/Definitions/Key Terms.

  • If you are required to provide an analysis of existing research, you will need a separate section called Literature Review.

  • Use the present tense to outline the problem and your aims.

  • Use the past tense to describe events that have occurred when giving background information or context.

Method

  • List the procedures and processes undertaken in your investigation in clear order. If necessary, use subheadings like Sample, Instruments.

  • For a technical report, you may need to include descriptions of materials, equipment and resources.

  • Use the past tense as the events of the research are over.

  • Unless you are told specifically to write in first person, choose impersonal sentence structures such as passive constructions, e.g. 20 students were selected randomly to form the sample group instead of I selected 20 students randomly to form the sample group.

Findings, results and data

  • Present your information in a clear and logical sequence.

  • You may want to use charts, tables, graphs and pictures to demonstrate your results. These are collectively called ‘figures’ in a report. Make sure that each of these is labelled and numbered consecutively.

  • If you have a large amount of empirical results, include them in an appendix.

  • Use the past tense and passive construction to describe what was found, in keeping with the impersonal tone of the report.

Discussion and analysis

  • This section explains and argues the interpretation of the evidence in the report.

  • Use the present tense to discuss the ongoing situation as revealed in the investigation. Check with your lecturer whether you should adopt a personal or impersonal tone in the discussion.

Conclusion

  • This section is like the conclusion of an essay – it provides an overall purpose of the report, the steps through which it has progressed, and its overall findings and point of view.

  • No new material should be included in the conclusion.

Recommendations and implications

  • If the nature of the report has been to identify actions to be taken as a result of the findings, they should be listed here sequentially.

  • Use the past tense to review what the report found, and comment in the present tense.

References

Ensure that your report has a reference list at the end.

  • It demonstrates that you have researched the area.

  • It demonstrates that you are enlisting the support of someone’s research to support your own ideas and findings.

  • It demonstrates what ideas or information you have referred to from someone’s research as distinct from your own.

  • It demonstrates that you acknowledge and give credit to the work of someone else.

  • Makes sure that you are familiar with the referencing style as prescribed by your faculty.

  • Only includes those references that you have used in your report (i.e. those that you have cited in the report).

Appendices

  • An appendix is any extra material that you wish to include at the end of your report for the audience to consider

  • It may be that it is not essential in the body of the report itself, or is too lengthy and would interrupt the flow of information

  • In some cases, it may be evidential material on which your findings are based (e.g. statistical calculations or data from another source)

  • Each appendix should be titled and numbered (e.g. Appendix A, Appendix B), and listed in the table of contents

What is Database?

Our database assignment help experts explain database as a collection of information that is organized so that it can easily be accessed, managed, and updated. In one view, databases can be classified according to types of content: bibliographic, full-text, numeric, and images. The purpose of the database assignment help service is to provide you with an easy to understand solution that explains various concepts of database management. For example, mechanism for storing, managing and retrieving information can easily be understood using our online database assignment sample solutions. Database management systems achieve these functionalities with the help of Tables. A fine analogy for the tables can be the Microsoft Excel sheet with grids. Tables in relational database consist of columns and rows. Each column has a different type of attribute, and each row is a single record. For example, a record can be an entry into a database with names and telephone numbers. We would probably set up columns named as First Name, Last Name, and Telephone Number. If we were building a table of contact information for our business that has 50 employees, we would d wind up with a table that contains 50 rows.

A generic problem that any database assignment help expert is able to identify is the data proliferation. With the increase in the amount of data over the years, it has become very important to have a robust database that can hold millions of entries. Most the business are data driven. Our database assignment help experts demonstrates it using an example of Facebook. It is a comapny that is totally dependent on the user database. Same concept is applicable for Google and Other marketing companies. Apart from holding the information data retrieval is one of the most important parts of databases. If we are not able to fetch data at an efficient rate, then the concept of databases is rendered useless. Hence, we receommend you to hire a database assignment help provider to create an efficient and effective database design for your assignment. It will ensure that your professor is satisfied with the assignment solution and reward you with a good grade.

Types of DB design review and their Importance

  1. Conceptual Design Review – This review comes into picture at initial data and application proposal level. This validates the proposal of data and application.
  2. Logical Design Review – We have to review all the data elements, descriptions, and relationships, as well as comparison to and possibly remediation of the corporate data model
  3. Physical Design Review – The detail review of the design to ensure that all of the proper database parameter settings and other physical design choices were made. It also ensures that a logical model is properly translated to the physical database accordingly
  4. Organizational Design Review – This deals with the impact examination of the new application/database upon the organization from a business and technological perspective
  5. SQL and Application Code Review – This involves the rigorous review of every SQL assignment and related SQL statements in the application of the statement by statement basis.
  6. Pre-Implementation Design Review – An overall appraisal of the system components prior to implementation
  7. Post-Implementation Design Review – formally review the application and database once it has run in production for a while to determine if the application is meeting its objectives

Our database assignment helpers have an ideology about assignment writing. As per our assignment writers, it’s important and necessary to study subject with the intent of learning and interest. It is difficult to develop an understanding of the subject without the interest. The database becomes simple if the professional come up with the tips on Database assignment help and provide annotated notes to the students, wherever necessary. Many universities and schools in US and UK follows the same grading criteria, and they believe in more and more assignment solving. It ensuers that students get to learn the subject on their own, but it is not possible to solve every assignment as it takes lots of time. It is better to take help from experts.

4th Grade Games, Videos and Worksheets

In fourth grade, children are generally introduced to the order of operations, adding and subtracting fractions, and using the distributive property to solve equations. They start to focus on more complex concepts in algebra and geometry, such as calculating area and learning to create graphs. Fourth graders need multiple examples, charts, and other logical tools to help them make sense of these new tools.

Math Game Time’s free videos help illustrate concepts such as the order of operations, working with fractions, and creating graphs, incorporating fun lessons from actual teachers who want children to learn these concepts just as much as you do. Once children begin to master these skills, have them practice using them using Math Game Time’s collection of free games and worksheets, which incorporate logic, strategy, and fun.
