Typhoon Haiyan The Philippines have encountered several typhoons this year due to its geographical location. The country has been expecting these occurrences and has been aiming to lessen the casualties for each. However, early in November, the country has been warned about the super typhoon that is approaching. Despite the early warning, the group is curious why there is still a large amount of casualties?

Project Description

This project is a 5 minute documentary film which tackles climate change and philosophy. It would portray how the richer countries perceive this global issue and their stand on it. Do these countries ignore climate change because they have not felt its wrath? Or is Super Typhoon Haiyan an “eye opener” for the said countries? This project aims to show human responsibility and human suffering as well. Are we, humans, liable for what happened?

Methodology and Timelines

First, the group will research about typhoon haiyan, climate change and the philosophical aspects, which would last for 5 days (November 16-20). Through this, we would be more knowledgeable about what we will present. After which, a plot would be created, brainstorming with the team to produce the best output. The group aims to finish this in 3 days (November 21-23). Following the plot, the documentary filmmaking would take place, which would be on November 24 until December 4. We are targeting on finishing this as early as possible so we would have ample time to revise the film before submitting it on December…...

Taco Bell

...investment. This report is designed for Ms. Yolanda Yorbon, the current boss at Yolanda’s Yummy Restaurant. She has asked me and my research team to do some investigative work and present it in a long formal report. This will help her to determine which fast food franchise she should make an investment in between McDonald’s, Taco Bell, and Burger King. I will be examining the background behind the business, start-up costs, commitment, locations, requirements to work, requirements to franchise, and the ongoing fees for Taco Bell. Ms. Yolanda’s expertise is in the area of Mexican food. She really wants to be successful in other restaurant business ventures, and this is the way to provide the answers. Taco Bell Corp., based in Irvine, California, is the nation's leading Mexican-style chain. Taco Bell was founded by Glen Bell who first opened a hot dog stand in 1946 when he was 23 years old. Six years later, he sold the stand and opened a new one two years later, this time selling tacos under the name of Taco-Tia. Bell sold the El Tacos to his partner and built the first Taco Bell in Downey in 1962. Taco Bell Corp. started franchising in 1964. In 1970, Taco Bell went public with 325 restaurants. In 1978, PepsiCo purchased Taco Bell from Glen Bell. Taco Bell sells tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and many other Mexican foods. This would be great for Ms. Yolanda because her expertise is in Mexican food. Before starting up a Taco Bell franchise, Ms. Yolanda needs certain......

Obama - Exercise a

...Obama - Exercise A 1) Give an outline of the different attitudes to the situation of Americans presented in texts 1, 2 and 3. In text 1, “Black is being seen in a whole new light”, Yolanda Young, a black lawyer and columnist for the USA Today, writes about her own experiences. Before Barack Obama was elected (got) President of the United States, (no white people noticed) Yolanda was only noticed through her column in the USA today. (She felt that her black colour) The colour of her skin made her invisible on the streets of Washington. (Now it has chance and she is not invisible more.) Since Obama was voted in as President, (Almost daily white people tell her with a smile that she is beautiful and compares her with Michelle Obama.) Yolanda now receives daily compliments about her looks and people notice her likeness with the first lady; “You look just like Michelle Obama”, she is often told by the white people who recognises her natural beauty. A research in 2008 carried out by two psychology professors, found that 51 % of 300 non-black students showed an automatic preference for white people – which is not many compared to 80% in a previous research. Yolanda puts focus on another research where black children were presented with a black and a white doll. The children were given the choice of which doll they preferred and nearly all of them choose the white doll.

How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents

...being male here gives him.” (127) The complications with learning to live in completely new surroundings and new liberties also affected Yolanda (Yoyo/Joe). Alvarez mentions a monkey experiment that Carla read about in a psych class of hers. “These baby monkeys were kept in a cage so long, they wouldn’t come out when the doors were finally left open. Instead they stayed inside and poked their arms through the bars for their food, just out of reach.” (131) this passage strongly relates back to Yolanda’s character. In the scenario involving Rudy Elmenhurst, Yolanda is pressured to give into his demands to have sex with him. Here, she symbolizes the baby monkey, naive with inexperience and the cage is represented by an excuse of living up to her parent’s expectations, she has used for most of her life to not be wild and free. She is accustomed to life in her patriarchal culture, her cage, where it is respected to remain a virgin until marriage, but in the United States she realizes that these rules seldom apply. She has made her Hispanic culture her own prison bars, but is conflicted knowing that it is hardly a restriction. Yolanda states, “By then, I was a lapsed Catholic, my sisters and I had been pretty well Americanized since our arrival in this country a decade before, so really, I didn’t have a good excuse.” (87) It is here where Yolanda realizes that the cage door is open, and has been for a long time; she has always known and wanted to embrace the American society she......

Day in the Life of Yolanda Valdez

...A Day in the Life of Yolanda Valdez Peter F. Drucker, an Austrian-born, American Management consultant once said “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things”. On paper, anyone can make himself or herself look like an efficient leader. You can say that it’s not until you follow an employee around for a day to figure out how efficient they actually are. Yolanda Valdez, VP of Marketing at Clear Vision Group, was followed around for a day so that the reader could determine just that.  Clear Vision Group, a company under S.G. Davis, is a leading global designer and distributor of eyewear and sun wear for men, women and children. They operate under the retail name ClearVue.  “Clear Vision is a marketing-oriented company that bases its strategy on understanding customer’s needs and developing and delivering distinctive characteristics that appeal to customers.” (Hellriegel & Slocum 542). Understanding that the company is structured around marketing tells us that Yolanda plays a major role in the direction of the company.  As we investigate the nature of an average day of Yolanda, we begin to see whether she is doing the right things, or simply just doing things right.   When trying to understand where Yolanda excels or comes up short as a manager we will look at the seven key competencies for individual, team, and organizational effectiveness. These competencies will shed some light on how to be an effective leader and help her organization prosper....

...ANG HAGUPIT NI BAGYONG YOLANDA Naghanda ang mga Pilipino sa pagbagsak ng malakas na bagyong tinawag na Yolanda noong ika-8 ng Nobyembre na itinalang mas malakas an hagupit sa Leyte, Samar at sa buong Central Visayas. Ang bagyong Yolanda ay isang malakas na bagyong nanalasa sa gitnang Pilipinas noong Nobyembre 8, 2013. Ang bagyong ito ay siyang itinalang isa sa pinakamalakas na bagyo sa buong daigdig at ang ikalawang pinakamalakas na bagyo na tumama sa Pilipinas. Bago palang pumasok sa Pilipinas ang bagyong Yolanda, ay nagsalita na ang Pangulong Aquino tungkol sa paghanda ng mga tao kabilang na dito ang paglikas ng maaga lalo na kung malapit sa dagat o mabababang lugar. Kinansela na din ang lahat ng klase sa iba’t ibang paaralan. Naging handa man ang ating mga kababayan, ngunit may ibang hindi nakaligtas sa marahas na pagbagsak ng bagyong Yolanda. Kumitil ito ng mahigit isang libong (1,000) katao, maraming bahay ang pinasok ng tubig, maraming malalaking kahoy ang natumba, at maraming pamilya o kapamilya ang nawawala. Nagdulot din ito ng malawakang pagwasak at pinsala lalo na sa pulo ng Samar at Leyte. Matapos rumagasa sa Pilipinas ang bagyong Yolanda ay nawalan ng kuryente at signal ang buong lugar na apektado sa bagyo. Naging mahirap ang komunikasyon lalo na sa mga pamilyang may kamag-anak sa ibang bansa. Nawawalan na din ang mga sari-sari stores ng food supplies sanhi para magutom at magnakaw ang ibang mamamayan. Ilang araw pa ay nagtulung-tulong na sa pagbigay......

In our reading we discovered that an imaginative creative person is very insightful. These individuals brought strengths in risk taking, leaps of imagination, independent in their thinking, willing to go against the status quo. These individuals were open-minded, and use humor to convey ideas. The Innovative creative person is one who is inquisitive, persistent, experimental, analytical, and handles complexity with ease (Finding your Creative Potential, 2004). Strategy Yolanda and Ron believe with their ability to think outside the normal perimeters would prove valuable in assisting Kudler with its plans on becoming nationwide. The two managers believe that to be successful with this strategy Kudler must be willing to take risk in order to capture new consumers, who may have become accustomed to the traditional types of food. Having Yolanda and Ron on the team will allow the two of them to use their vas imagination to help the marketing team develop the best advertisement.

Ngunit naiisip nyo ba na maaaring mismong nasa mamamayan ng isang bansa ang problema? Maaaring parehong ang gobyerno at ang mamamayan nito ang tunay na may kasalanan kung bakit naghihirap ang isang bansa hindi ba? Patunay rito ay ang mga taong nabubuhay nang lampas sa kanilang kakayahan. Sila ang mga taong palaasa sa iba. Sa ganitong gawain nila, sino ang may kasalanan? Ang gobyerno at ang mga politiko? O ang mga taong palaasa? Ang dokumentaryong aking napanood ay tumatalakay sa paksa hinggil sa kung ano ang mas nakakaapekto o nakakapinsala sa ating lipunan ito ba ay ang Bagyong Yolanda o ang Bagyong Gobyerno? Dahil sa hagupit ng Bagyong Yolanda, nakaranas tayo ng Pambansang kalamidad. Marami ang nagdusa. Nakita ito ng buong mundo kaya ang mga iba’t ibang bansa at organisasyong pandaigdigan ay sumugod para tumulong. Nakatanggap tayo ng napakaraming tulong mula sa kanila sa anumang paraan. Pero, ang iilan sa kanila ay pilit inilalayo nila mula sa pamahalaan ang tulong na para sa mga nasalanta. Bakit? Kasi sa irresponsabilidad ng pambansang pamahalaan na rumesponde sa mga nasalanta nang agaran tulad ng pag-responde nang agaran ng ibang dayuhang pamahalaan sa panahon ng kalamidad.

Yolanda

...On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Yolanda , a super typhoon of unprecedented power , made landfall among the islands of the Philippines causing massive devastation across multiple islands. Particularly affected were many of the poorest communities whose already stressed circumstances were even further com promised by the storm. Yolanda decimated entire regions as it made landfall five times while crossing over the central Philippine islands. The storm affected 4 provinces and 10,436 barangays in 575 municipalities when it hit land with sustained winds of 196mph and even stronger gusts which ripped off roofs, collapsed buildings, shattered windows and inundated coastal regions with an incredible storm surge. The storm surge swallowed houses and people, destroyed boats and fishing inputs and left the majority of homes either completely destroyed or uninhabitable . In the aftermath, UNOCHA reports place the number of affected people at 13.28 million. As of the 22nd November 2013 , Yolanda has left dead 4,015 and has displaced 921,356 families/4,330,502 persons. Housing damage reports remain at 1,085,446 (536,313 completely destroyed with another 549,133 partially damaged). Millions of affected persons depend on daily food aid that is provided through local government units; and although food security remains a lower priority for most families; this could change very quickly if food distributions cease without first addressing the core issues surrounding loss of livelihood.......
