Executive summary

Introduction
The aim of this report is to critically analyse the architecture of the website www.flinders.ed.au. The information gathered from the analysis will be used to devise solutions to problems with the website. The technique of examination for the website was to thoroughly explore the different pages of the website and grade each area of the website using appropriate criteria. Dave Gehrke (1999) states that” without efficient and user=friendly navigation, the user is likely to get confused, lost or frustrated and leave the site for good”. A resultant survey run by Gehrke (1999) showed that page loading speed and navigational efficiency are the most important things to users. The most important user type that needs to be happy with the website for it to be successful is prospective students as they make a majority of the people visiting the site. Prospective students are more likely to turn into current students if they like the feel of the website. This analyst took on the role of prospective student to test the usability of the website for a new student trying to find different courses and then applying for that course.

How easy is it to choose a course and apply for the university it using the website?

A vast majority of first time users of the flinders university website would be year 12 school leavers who are prospective students looking to check out the unit and possibly apply to it. For…...

...Analytical Response to Male Pregnancy Male Pregnancy by Dick Teresi and Kathleen McAuliffe support that the technology and the demand for male pregnancy will be possible in the future. They specifically state that, "Someday a man will have a baby". They have written this article in an attempt to show why they believe this will one day become accepted and widely practiced. However, I disagree with Teresi and McAuliffe. I feel male pregnancy will never be freely practiced or accepted by any means. Teresi and McAuliffe start out their article by explaining what their general idea is for male pregnancy to occur. They state, "What we're talking about is implanting an embryo into a man's abdominal cavity, where the fetus would take nourishment, grow to term, and be delivered by an operation similar to a cesarean section. Already, this idea seems illogical to me. As a result of a man being pregnant, there must be a cesarean section to remove the baby. Even for women, this is a risk doctors prefer to avoid if possible. It puts the mother at a much greater risk of inj... ... middle of paper ... ...lt Teresi and McAuliffe's arguments for pursuing the technology of male pregnancies is not strong enough to actually do further research in the area. I feel that females are biologically established for birth where men's bodies naturally can not give birth. It seems illogical to try to change a system that has worked so well for so many years.

...Analytical Report on Overall Activities of ICB : A Case Study of Rajshahi Branch CHAPTER-ONE Introduction 1.1  What is internship? Internship means practical training through attending the particular work physically. Practical training means a way through which a person or a trainee can gather experience about the related subject practically and be able to apply his theoretical experience in the field of real life action. Practical training paves the way for gaining practical knowledge through activities other than reading textbooks and attending formal academic courses. Practical training is necessary to achieve complete knowledge about something. Internship program is a form of practical training. I firmly believe, practical training can open the inner eyes of a man. The works conducted during the Internship Program will expand the horizon of our practical knowledge. For the students of BBA of the Department of Accounting & Information System internship is an academic requirement. For the internship every student is required to work in a selected institution to enhance his practical experiences. The internship is managed and supervised by a supervisor who is a teacher of the department.

Analytical Report Italians

...Italian’s, by nature, are very talkative. Emotions are expressed openly and reserving them can sometimes be misinterpreted as disinterest. It should not be surprising to notice that Italians generally interrupt one another during important business meetings, as this tends to be a very common means of communication in an Italian business setting. It is even common for them to outwardly and openly disagree with the message. If you are passionate about a business idea, it is good practice to express your emotions on the subject. Italian people also value a direct and straightforward communication style during a business transaction, so be candid when discussing business matters and your Italian counterpart will respect you for it. Business attire is a sign of professionalism, but when Italians dress casually, it usually includes a jacket and tie for men and a simple but elegant suit or dress for women. (Communicaid Ltd.,2007). Shorts are not considered acceptable out in the public, and should never be worn in a business setting. Italians love to accessorize and Italian women are even known to wear more makeup then American women. Women do not wear revealing tops or sleeveless shirts and men almost always have a neck tie on, as image is one of the most important aspects of your professionalism. When dressed inappropriately you may convey the wrong message to your Italian counterpart. Generally, dress tends to be on the formal side for both men and women, whether in...

...The Shakedown | March 16 EBC | This report analyzes what actions should be taken to sustain business after a situation which may damage future business enterprises. | Analytical Report | 3/16/2013 Dear Mr. Zhuk, I have taken the initiative to provide you with some options to help you with your business situation. As you know, starting a profitable business in a developing country can be very rewarding because of several reasons. However, it is a challenge to abide by the law when bribery takes place throughout the country. With this report I will analyze the issues at hand and give some options that maybe lead to solutions. In the Ukraine, international business owners have trouble keeping their businesses running smoothly without losing their ethic. It is custom to offer a form of payment in order to receive a faster delivery, or in this case not to be harassed further. It is visible that you are struggling to deal with these unaccustomed methods and you may be confused as to whether you should pay. It is not a good idea to take this offer and bribe the UTA because of several reasons. Handling business in developing countries can be tricky and it does require hands-on experience. Bribery and corruption are boldly exhibited. It is not uncommon to use payments to expedite processes in the Ukraine, as businesses ask for money to complete the tasks they perform. Your business has overlooked the importance of ethical behavior when acquiring a few phone lines as......

Analytical Book Report

...Rudy Hernandez, Jr. HIST-1302 10/06/13 Analytical Book Report [pic] As I sat and read The Creation of Patriarchy I could not believe the depth of the anger I was feeling just from reading someone else’s work. I had to reread the whole thing again just to be sure that the emotions that I was feeling were in fact because of the reading. It was a powerful piece that gave me a sense of connection between Ms. Lerner and my own life. As an Anthropology minor the notion that all known societies are patriarchal has been engrained in me. A woman's maternal duties are often offered as the explanation as to why the men have "time" to pursue some kind of "attainment". Patriarchy is enacted in our day-to-day experiences which not only affect our psychological make-up but also affect our brain development, thus putting the gender stamp on all of us in a way we feel intrinsic. Gerda Lerner’s book, The Creation of Patriarchy angrily challenges this patriarchal tradition in our society. Gerda Lerner argues that male dominance over women is not "natural" or biological, but the product of an historical development. The question of the roots of oppression of women is as much a question of history as it is of economics, sociology and analytical and cognitive psychology. Patriarchy is a stigma from a past and could disappear when it becomes irrelevant. But in the context of the current world civilization, it is created all the time. While undoubtedly true, it......

Social scientist have been studying the effects of media violence and video game violence since the 1950’s to the 1980’s. Research has shown that boys are more likely to play violent video games than girls. Research has also shown that playing violent video games does stir up hostile urges and aggression in the short term and that younger kids that develop a gaming habit (over a one to two year period) can be slightly more aggressive. It has not yet been determined whether or not playing video games for a period longer than two years can lead to acts of violent crime. Christopher Barlett, a psychologist at Iowa State University, conducted a study in which he had 47 students play “Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance” for 15 minutes and had another group of students play a nonviolent video game. The results of the study showed that students that played “Mortal Kombat” were more aggressive than the group of students that played a nonviolent video game. Similar studies done have shown...

Dollar General Analytical Report

...The Dollar General Informal Analytical Report Professor XXX DeVry University June 1, 2014 999 West Big Beaver Road Troy, Michigan (USA) 48084 kfirst@kellyservices.com Dollar General is widely regarded as one of the chief discount vendors in the United States. Based in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, it has over 11,000 stores across 40 states, serving to customers with the idea of making shopping easier, and convenient, by carefully sorting out the goods, and selling them at spectacularly low prices, the store’s growth rate saw a decline Because the targeted audience of Dollar General looks for buying everyday household good at the lowest prices, they are suspended to growing more in periods of recessions. Such stores find themselves under pressure at times because they cannot increase the prices of their goods even when the costs of operations are on the rise. By analyzing the average earnings of household in the West of the country, as well as Upper-Midwest, there is room for growth courtesy of new stores. Opening of their stores in California could well be stressful for them, as the market is challenging, and there is little room for newcomers, unless they come up with impressive deals. On the other hand, their plan of having a merger with their rivals Family Dollar is on the cards, though it is hard to figure out the impact it would have on the two parties/the newly formed company. Also, Dollar General does not cater all departments...

Analytical Report

...Jarrod Thompson 4 March 2014 A Battle for Freedom Brief Summary Two of the most debated topics in the U.S. today are those of gay rights and religious freedom. Recently, these two issues clashed head-to-head in the form of a Senate bill in the state of Arizona. This bill would have protected business owners exercising their religious freedom in refusing service to others. The following will describe the facts involving the bill and offer recommendations on why its veto was an adverse decision. Statement of Facts Senate Bill 1062 (SB 1062) was introduced in early 2014 by Senator Steve Yarbrough as a means to update Arizona’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). These updates are meant to clarify the protection that individuals would have in exercising their religious freedom. These protections include using religious freedom in conducting business and in dealing with other private citizens with regards to court cases. Advocates of the bill have cited a case from the New Mexico Supreme Court as a critical need for these changes. In that case, Elane Photography v. Willock, the Court ruled that the state’s RFRA did not apply to the enforcement of a state law. The Center for Arizona Policy, one of the bill’s major proponents, seeks to eliminate the enforcement of state laws that violate religious liberty. The group claims that SB 1062 clarifies and strengthens existing laws protecting religious freedom. The bill gained national recognition due to the...

...conversation between the two of us at times. Anyone who knows either of us knows that if you’re hanging out with the two us you’re in for a day filled with laughs and acts of randomness. I have known Andrew for eight years now and I can confidently say he is one of a kind. He is a completely unpredictable person and I think that’s why I am so close with him. When thinking of the similarities between Andrew and myself, I think the fact that we enjoy each other’s company so much makes us as close as we are. We are two individuals, although we relate on many things, we aren’t the same person and have different views and thoughts on many subjects. When I got together with Andrew recently and began discussing family, the first topic of my Analytical Paper, Andrew replied, “I don’t have a family”. Now - 1 - before he gets the poor and abused label, this is the type of thing Andrew says on a daily basis. He’s not the type of kid to sit down and have a serious conversation with you right away. If you want to hear what he has to say, it takes a little bit of dragging it out of him sometimes. However other times you can’t get him to be quiet. The fact was that I already knew about his views on family. “Responsibility, connection, commitment” Andrew hasn’t shown these qualities for eight years. When it comes to his family life, I’m embarrassed at times. If I ever talked to my mother or father the way Andrew does I might end up getting a backhand to the face.......

...Columbus, GA 31907 Dear Professor Culverson: The attached report describes the financial benefit and drawbacks of child care that our company is offering to our employees as part of an expansion to our current benefits package. We feel that offering this additional benefit will increase employee productivity and performance; produce positive relations between staff, and yield higher profits. The research was designed to examine the impact of child care benefits package in three areas: • • • The projected impact that the child care benefits will have on our company financially The projected impact that it would have on the employee’s productivity, performance, and relation with staff The projected financial income statement of the company after profits and expenses are factored in with this additional benefit cost Primary research consisted of 75 surveys that were given to parents at Aflac Imagination Station, Growing Room, and Netta Little Treasures. We also interviewed the managers at each location to determine various child care benefit packages provided. Secondary research sources included reviewing two large companies and their child care benefits package as well as reviewing other case studies on child care benefits. Results of this research, discussed more fully in this report, indicate that providing a child care benefits package can serve as an advantage to our company. We would be pleased to discuss this report and its conclusion with you at a later date. Our......

Remember that you work for a company (real or hypothetical) and you’re researching a product or service that needs updating/replacing so that you can do your job more effectively. This is not a product or service that you or the company wants to sell or offer. Research Strategy (Sources and Methods of Data Collection) – List how you will gather research, from what types of sources and sites, etc. Preliminary Outline – Remember this is an Indirect Style Analytical Report that we’re organizing by Criteria, so look at Ch. 13, 14 and 15 to help you. On p. 394, the Yardstick Approach is discussed and organizing by the product/service or the criteria is explained. I prefer this to be organized by criterion because the report usually reads more smoothly this way, but will be okay with you organizing it by product/service instead. You will not be providing ANY details because you shouldn’t have researched anything yet or drawn any conclusions/recommendations. Just list the 3 product names and list the 3 (or more) criteria you have chosen as shown below (and similar to p. 394 outline – look at section IV and notice how the numbered items are the SAME for each of the lettered parts).
