The Boeing 787 is perhaps the most advanced commercial airline of its type ever developed. Boeing has incorporated many improvements in its design making it a very economical and beneficial investment for any airline company. Boeing included several advanced technologies that enhanced the performance of the 787, allowing a takeoff weight of 545,000 pounds, which allows for 290 passenger occupancy, and a range up to 8,500 Nautical Miles. Despite the Boeing 787’s stunning performance it also has unrivaled efficiency which promises to make long distance flights more profitable for airline companies and more affordable for passengers. In today’s market, profit margins are thin and airline companies are looking for ways to cut costs and improve the quality of services provided to their passengers. Boeing engineers have kept this in mind when designing every element of this aircraft. One of the key technologies used by Boeing , giving the 787 an edge over its competition, is the use of advanced composite materials. The use of composite materials has made it possible to simplify the manufacturing process by making fewer subcomponents needed to complete a single airframe. This means that there are fewer splices and joints for mechanics to inspect during routine maintenance, saving time and money. Composite materials are responsible for about half of the aircrafts total weight and offers huge weight savings over traditional aluminum because they have a higher strength to weight ratio. There by allowing greater payloads to be carried on each flight and a greater earning potential for future operators. Composite materials have made it possible for Boeing engineers to make vast improvements on the aerodynamic qualities of the 787 according to Boeings Chief Project…...

...Dreams can be both fascinating and baffling, which is why they have garnered attention from philosophers, artists, writers and poets for thousands of years. Only fairly recently in history have researchers began to scientifically study the dreaming process. While people still disagree about the exact purpose of dreams and the possible interpretations of dream content, this area remains a topic of interest for both psychologists, researchers, students and anyone who wonders about the reasons behind their dreams. Dream Meanings and Interpretation: Do you often find yourself exactly why you dreamed what you did, especially after having particularly strange dreams? Despite the research and interest in dreaming, no one yet fully understands how to interpret dream meanings. Sigmund Freud’s theory of dreams contributed a great deal to the general interest in dream interpretation. Books and dream dictionaries have helped ensure that the topic remains popular today. Dreams can be mysterious, but understanding the meaning of our dreams can be downright baffling. The content of our dreams can shift suddenly, feature bizarre elements or frighten us with terrifying imagery. The fact that dreams can be so rich and compelling is what causes many to believe that there must be some meaning to our dreams. Theories about Dreams: While many theories exist to explain why we dream, no one yet fully understands their purpose, let alone how to interpret the meaning of dreams. In fact, some......

...Machine Dreams Page 116 1. Dream Mitch- His first dream was him at the war and he dreamed of what I think was little kids dying and him killing them because he talks about seeing “The hands small and delicate like the hands of big children, and the averted faces smooth and beardless.” So this means that he was dreaming about the kids. Then the twist I think he is saying that he is taking the bull dozer and sweeping the bodies somewhere and pretending he is home and that he is just pushing the “earth” so he doesn’t have to face what he is actually doing. Mitch- This second dream I think was a nightmare and a dream combine into one dream. He dreams about I think about dying in the war. When he mentions the girl that he can’t figure out who she is floating on a bed of flowers floating across the sea. Then in church he thinks that he is floating restfully. Or it could be that he dreamt that Kate has died while he was away at war and while he was moving around he left everyone else in the family lost and without him. Jean’s- Her dream was defiantly a nightmare it was about a horrible tragedy. She dreamt that she was a child again and with her mom in a big crowd of people. She then over heard people talking and they were saying that a man had killed his children and wife. Then some man tells her this is history being made here that something this bad could even happen. 2.

Victory Liner Study

...INTRODUCTION THE BUS COMPANY Victory Liner, Inc. is one of the largest provincial bus companies operating in the Philippines. This bus company played a major role in transport industry since it became the product of Japanese occupation in the country after World War II. Today, Victory Liner, Inc. has grown as one of the largest bus transportation business groups in the Philippines, servicing all key destinations in Northern Luzon. As of today, Victory Liner deploys more than 900 buses in its daily operations. The company is a sister company of Five Star Bus Company. HISTORY Name The name adopted by Jose for his new business was inspired by the triumphant Americans who made “Victory” a household word after the war. American coins used as legal tender during the liberation and occupation bore the word “Victory.” As the Americans walked the streets of war-torn Manila, the Filipinos displayed a V-sign with their fingers and cheered on the Americans, saying, “Victory! Victory! Victory!” Thus the name Victory Liner reflected the strong emotions of Filipinos at that time. The beginning During the Japanese occupation, Jose Isaac Hernandez , a pre-war mechanic,was obliged to service engines and fix firearms of both the Japanese and the guerillas. With his keen sense of mechanical trouble, no one could fool him. He assessed engine trouble by listening first to the running engine. There was another story that said Jose’s skill was tested when he was asked to dismantle and......

The Dream

...The American Dream The phenomenon of the American Dream is the substance of almost all American icons, and actually achieving the American Dream is the ideal aspiration of not only Americans but immigrants as well. Some people would argue that the American Dream actually really consists only of being able to buy and own a home, but to me it is so much more! The American Dream named, because it seemingly exists only here in America, for very ambitious people to be a distinguished success through their own hard work and determination. People constantly try to achieve their own dreams. Some people, already here in America, chase their dream by wanting to be a bigger success than their parents. The others who have immigrated to this country chase their very own dream, by giving up all they had just to come and have the opportunity to succeed.  The American Dream is something that is mainly achieved with hard work and determination. First of all, you cannot have a dream without working hard at it; this definitely applies to the American Dream. Whether you are just looking for a job or working a job hard work is something that you need, without it achieving your dream becomes a lot more difficult. Hard work will also lead to more promotions and more successes a lot quicker; these tend to be apart of the average American Dream. The other big reason hard work is needed is if you do not exude a hard working attitude a lot of opportunities will pass you by. With missed......

...Through doing the research about dreams I have learned a vast about of important information from how to write an annotated bibliography, how to use VCU’s library system online, how to critically dissect as well as review my paper and the most important what different people believe a dream means to them. Once again my knowledge of VCU’s online library research system came in handy. Because I knew the correct ways to search of information through this data base it helped eliminate unneeded information. The writing workshops gave me and in depth look and how to read a paper from the readers point of view versus just the writer’s voice. It also gave me a chance to see how other people would create such a paper and gave me tips on where I was lacking strength. Having someone else read and criticized your work humbles you as well as gives you room to grow as a writer. Along with the workshop having you look over my paper and giving me your feedback helped be discover ways I could elaborate and fix my claim. Since this is the second time I have written and read research on the topic of dreams I feel like I have a stronger understanding of how beneficial dreams are to your lives. If I have dream that frightens me I know have a idea of where it came from and how it relates to my day to day life because I have read so many different views and opinions on dream analysis. Learning about the different ways people view the ‘meaning’ of a dream really gives me a new......

Boeing 787: Dream Liner

...Analysis of Boeing 787: The Dreamliner Boeing announced the launch of a new jetliner called the Dreamliner (Boeing 787) and hoped to regain its leadership role in the commercial airline industry. I will apply the theories of competitive forces model and the macro-environment to analyze the Boeing case in the following exploration, and then give my suggestions. According to the competitive force model, the first point of the risk of entry by potential competitors is neither high nor low because a new company produces on a small scale even can’t cover the multiple-billions R&D, and Boeing already have accumulated experience, patents, or trade secrets that they are more effective than new companies (Hill & Jones, 2012); while the new“global systems integrator” strategy tends to create potential competitors such as China and Japan. Secondly, the commercial airline industry is a consolidated industry that the launch of A380 from Airbus directly affect the market share of Boeing in 2003, and the fixed costs in this industry is very high; thus, the rivalry among established companies is intensive. Thirdly, A380, A350 etc. are the substitutes with similar basic needs, which are threats to Boeing 787 and leads to the operation risk. On the macro-environment, the economy of developing countries grows very fast that both Boeing and Airbus believed “the passenger traffic in China would surge over 8.0% annually” (Nolan & Kotha, 2005), which tends to ease competitive......

Dream

...Dream is held in the area of our mind when we are asleep. It happens to all. Often, dream is helpful. A mathematician often gets the right method to -solve a difficult sum in his dream. Some people feel that they are taking delicious dish and sweet fruits in their dream. Sometimes a very interesting drama is enacted in our dream and that makes us laugh in our deep sleep. Sometimes we also cry due to the influence of a tragic dream. Dreams may be real or imaginary. When we think about a thing or an event very much in our practical life, a dream concerning that thing or that event touches our subconscious mind in our slumber. Once I had a dream about a strange animal. In my dream I was walking through a desert. I met an animal. I had not seen that animal before. When it came to me, I asked him his name. He said that his name was dinosaur. Still I could not believe my eyes. Because dinosaurs as a species are already extinct from the world. It was a baby dinosaur. So it did not harm me. Then I took care of the baby dinosaur. It grew up. It became my friend. It was indeed an admirable friendship. Once a drought affected our locality. We got little rain. There was no crop. People were starving. The dinosaur also could not get water and food. Still it did not break the friendship. It went wherever I went. One day it narrated its sufferings and cried. I realised that the dinosaur was really on the verge of death. But I was helpless. It was a desert where water was......

...and visualizing the following day's interview repeatedly in my mind. Since that was mostly the only (and last) thought I had before entering my REM cycle that night, the thought had continued into my unconscious state. My dream consisted of the next days events, mainly the interview. Vividly, I went through the routine of waking up to my alarm, getting showered and dressed, eating a balanced breakfast, and arriving to the office on time. Then, the dream had skipped forward to the moment the employer looking over my resume and asking me a set of questions. Afterwards, it had rewound the interview over and over again giving me different outcomes and questions each time showing the various possibilities. When I woke up I couldn't believe that it had been a dream it felt so real but thanks to the dream it prepared me for the real deal. I felt more confident and prepared to bite the bullet and get the job that I deserve. Re-enacting my dream, I woke up to my preset alarm almost to the exact routine I mentally prepared for: got showered and dressed (in the same outfit consisting of a dress shirt and pants I saw in my dream), ate a balanced breakfast, and arrived to the office on time remembering the possibilities of questions I was going to receive. This dream was an example of sleep fueling creativity and needing a nights rest to gather ones thoughts together. The dream's assistance with recollecting the responses I've prepared for the interviewer's inquiries and fortunately......

Dreams

...Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.[1] The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest, throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is called oneirology.[2] Dreams mainly occur in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep—when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages of sleep. However, these dreams tend to be much less vivid or memorable.[3] The length of a dream can vary; they may last for a few seconds, or approximately 20–30 minutes.[3] People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. The average person has three to five dreams per night, but some may have up to seven dreams in one night.[4] The dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full eight-hour night sleep, most dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM.[5] In modern times, dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind. They range from normal and ordinary to overly surreal and bizarre. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the...

...Theories of Counseling 11/24/14 Personal Experience Paper #3 When writing down my dreams I found this to be quite interesting. As a child I use to attend counseling to help me stop dreaming because of the nightmares I use to have. Anyhow after my counseling I never seemed to dream anymore and when I did I could never seem to remember them. Unlike my dreams before my counseling as a child (which I can remember quit vividly and still remember them to this day) dreams now seem to become mixed with memories of real life events—now I just assume any memory that I can’t mentally verify as a past dream and that I must be experiencing déjà vu. Never the less, I wrote down two dreams. The first one was a lucid dream—I know this because I had the dream after I laid back down from waking up to use the bathroom. I did try to interact with the dream but normally once I become fully aware that I’m dreaming I wake up shortly after. Another issue I had was that when I go back and read what my dream was about it is very scattered; and I have a problem understanding my writing as well as remembering the dream at after re-reading days later what I had wrote. When I try to interpret my first dream all I get from it is that about 50% of it deals with what I do on a day to day bases. I work in a call center and most of my dream dealt with me in work talking on the phone to customers. The other 50% of that dream dealt with my family. I’m not really close to my relatives and I dreamed that I......

The Dream

...The Dream. Copyright 2007 Eve Care I had a dream... One day I would open my eyes or wake up and I would no longer need smoking to keep me calmed and grounded and in that state of comfort. I would be cured. I would then walk to the trash bin with the smokes I had on hand and ditch them, along with the old habit with total good ridence and gratitude that I finally had smoked enough to cure myself. Wow. What a lie. And that was really true. I did have that dream. I dreamt it wherever I'd go. And it didn't matter where I went. I always needed a smoke. And with every smoke I had I would wonder, will this one be my last? Will I finally have enough in me to cure once and for all? It was also a way of holding onto a fantasy. Dreams do come true, but not in the way you may think they do sometimes. My dream of being smoke-free came true, but not in the way I dreamed it would. I had the most illusive dream. It is much like, the American Dream. Because each person is different and have different ideas about how to live an ethical way of life without damaging life around us now, and it is us who need to make the change, to be that change, we wish to see in the world. There are lots of lies that are told to us throughout our lives. most of mine came in the first 30 years of my life. It is hard to break free from all of those lies. They have become quite ingrained within us and when we go to release something that we have healed, another thing pops up and thus continues......

Dream

...Dreams are very different from waking life, but it is extremely difficult clearly to define in what the difference consists. When we are dreaming, we are nearly always convinced that we are awake, and in some cases real experiences have been mistaken for dreams. The latter mistake forms the subject of a celebrated Spanish play called Life a Dream, and of an amusing story in the Arabian Nights, in which a poor man is for a jest treated as a mighty monarch, and it is contrived that he should afterwards think that all the honourable treatment he had actually received was merely a vivid dream. Sometimes even after waking, we may be doubtful whether our dream was a reality or not, especially if we happen to fall asleep in our chair and do not remember the circumstance of having fallen to sleep. Of course this doubt can only arise when there has been nothing in our dream that seems impossible to our wakened mind. It is, however, only in rare cases that a dream exactly copies the experience of our waking hours. As a rule, in our sleep all kinds of events seem to happen which in our waking hours we should know to be impossible. In our dreams we see and converse with friends who are at the other side of the world or have been long dead. We may even meet historical or fictitious characters that we have read about in books. We often lose our identity and dreams that we are someone else, and in the course of a single dream may be in turn several different persons. Space and time to the......

...Bag of Dreams campaign started as a vision developed by the business communication class of Cebu’s Ateneo Graduate School of Business and inspired by Professor Teresa Maria A. Custodio. At first the project seemed daunting, since the class was given no more than a month and a half to develop, organize, and implement the project. Ultimately we bonded together, elected two leaders and later on broke the class in to sub groups and assigned group heads for tasks that fit their skill sets. As a class, we decided education as our advocacy and voted to target the basic facility we can give students to jump-start their school year. Most organizations donate books and classrooms. We realized that without the basic materials needed to study, students wont go to school at all. We then went in to research as to what materials were needed by students, and found the exact mix students needed to perform. We selected the San Roque Elementary School in Talisay City, Cebu as our beneficiary because it had the right amount of students enrolled and came highly recommended by the education superintendent. We then went in to deeper investigation and found that the school was in much need of help. This further inspired us to perform better. What started as a difficult task slowly and surely became something we would do anything to achieve. And with only a month to organize and prepare, the bag of dreams campaign felt like a dream to accomplish. A month later and what seemed like a dream to......

Boeing : Selling a Dream (Liner)

...In the 21st century, any company whose ultimate goal is to achieve leadership within its industry, it is necessary that they think beyond their domestic market and consider global markets instead. By doing this, they need to be able to change or implement their strategy in order to stay as competitive as they were before, form alliances and partners along the way and outperform the competition. For Boeing, trying to become the global leader in its industry again meant that they needed to launch an exceptional, better aircraft than their competition, Airbus. They were also relying on foreign partners more than ever before to get every part ready in time for assembly. With the launch of their 25th model named the 787 Dreamliner, scheduled for delivery in 2008, Boeing promised to provide airlines with a fuel efficient aircraft and passengers with a modern, convenient airplane that will take them distances in comfort at competitive prices. A potential benefit of this new aircraft was to decrease fuel consumption by 20% making it more environmental friendly with its quieter takeoffs and landings. The market structure for the Dreamliner has an oligopolistic nature which means there are few aircraft manufactures which sell large quantities to its buyers. With Boeings biggest competitor Airbus unable to compete with the Dreamliner product, Boeing has the chance to take over the market for commercial aircraft. The demand for the Dreamliner is derived demand. Due to......
