The scenario from the initial stage of receiving nationwide sales information and stock status on daily basis was done completely on manual process through phone calls and faxes apart from sending data through postal services, which were also eventually not that easy from all locations for unavailability of PSTN or STD connections.

...Bump in the Night: The Vampire Bat Authors Note This essay of a memoir has been submitted on April 7, 2013   Oh my god! This did not just happen to me. I find myself locked outside of my apartment with just my underoos on. I'm around eleven or years old at this time in my life. My mom and I have been in our apartment for about a year or two at this point so know my neighbors petty well by now. I had just moved to Maryland from Savannah, GA a few years ago. I'm slowly adjusting to being a latch key kid because my mother was a corrections officer and worked odd shifts sometime early morning or the midnight shift. I have two older brothers Mike who is the oldest at 7 years older than me and Toby who is 6 years older than me. They are not living with us at this time. My mom has been working these odd shifts for a year or so at this time so I was used to being home alone. There were rules I had to follow to keep myself safe. I'm pretty sure all latch key kids parents made them live by these rules as well. Never open the door from anyone but my mom or my brothers unless given direct instructions from either one of them. Don't give the impression that I might be home alone. Sometimes I would leave the television on or radio in the living room to give the illusion that there is some activity going on inside our apartment. This being home alone at night had become standard operating procedure at this point. There were just a few things that really bothered me when......

Management Ethics for Bat

...industry is one of the most powerful international commercial industries in the world. The price of tobacco varies by the total quantity on the market ready for sale, the area where it grows and the quality of products. It is often heavily taxed to gain revenues for governments and as an incentive for people not to smoke. British American Tobacco (BAT) formed in 1902 as a joint venture between the UK’s Imperial Tobacco Company and the American Tobacco Company founded by James ‘Buck’ Duke. The business has operated for more than 100 years it is the world’s second largest quoted tobacco group by global market share (Earthwatch). It holds robust market positions in each of its regions and has leadership in more than 15 million retail outlets throughout the world. Yet, Philip Morris is the main competitor of BAT. The Chairman of BAT is, Richard Burrows on 1 November 2009. Then, the Chief Executive Officer, Nicandro Durante in March 2011 and John Daly was appointed to the role of Chief Operating Officer in September 2010.

...business is doing commercially viable and profitable work. The business world has moral that to survive in the industry to make money and gain a face value and thus increase their share value or profit. To do this many companies are working towards it. In order to gain continuous respect in the business world, corporations take on a responsibility to assure the people of a country that this particular company not just sells several products but also does something for the nation in return. This corporate self-regulation is known as the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The field of responsible business practice is one of the most dynamic and challenging subjects corporate leaders face today. It is argued that socially responsible behaviour can pay off in the long run, even where it involves some short-term sacrifice of profit. CSR has been pioneered over the last two decades by the oil, chemical and tobacco industries due to their attempt to win back social respectability by changing their image. In this report, shall discuss how British American Tobacco plc (BAT), as one of the biggest tobacco companies in the world, allows their businesses to manage the economic, social and environmental effect of their operations to maximise the benefits and minimise the problems.

Baseball Bat Case

...Relevant Facts The plaintiff purchased a defective baseball bat from the defendant. The defendant claims the first time that he used the baseball bat, it shattered to pieces. Since the baseball bat was defective from the time the plaintiff purchased the bat, he feels he should be refunded for the item. Issue Presented The issue in this case is whether the bat shattering to pieces violates the Implied Warranty of Merchantability under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). Rule According to the case of Dudzik v. Klein’s All Sports, a baseball bat can’t crack when it’s used normally or the seller has to provider the buyer with a refund for the product. LaurenceDudzik v. Klein’s All Sports, 158 Misc. 2nd 72 (N.Y. J. Ct. 1993). Also, according to the Appeals Court of Massachusetts, a baseball bat shattering into a million pieces, violates the implied warranty of merchantability. Industria De Calcados Martini Ltda v. Maxwell Shoe Co., 36 Mass. App. Ct. 268 (Mass. App. Ct.1994). Both cases cite § 2-314 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). § 2-314. Implied Warranty: Merchantability; Usage of Trade. (2) Goods to be merchantable must at least be such as (a) pass without objection in the trade under the contract description; and (b) in the case of fungible goods, are of fair average quality within the description; and (c) are fit for the ordinary purposes for which such goods are used; and (d) run, within......

Porters 5 Forces Bat

...The tobacco industry is a very competitive market and only about 3 very large corporations control the entire market. In Malaysia, British American Tobacco (BAT) is the biggest company in the industry, but others such as JT International are steadily growing in brand name. All companies battle for market share through heavy advertising budgets and slotting deals. The cigarette market is well into the maturity stage, and some might even argue that given the recent anti-smoking campaigns and lawsuits the industry is nearing the decline phase. However, sales show that decline has not yet been reached. Apparently, brand loyalty still exists.  The tobacco industry has a very low threat of entry. A few powerful firms control most of the industry. Any new entrants would be sure to receive heavy retaliation from the other companies fighting to keep their share of the lucrative industry. For example, BAT is by far the industry leader with estimated tobacco sales of RM 3 billion in 2009. They have a huge base of resources with which to attack other competitor entrants. They could easily start promotions such as "buy one, get one free" or offer coupons at certain times during the year to discourage entrants to the industry. Many small companies will not be able to compete with the capital requirements in the tobacco industry. The barriers to entering the tobacco industry are numerous. First, the high volume of cigarette sales gives existing firms economies of scale, which would be a......

Bat in Our Life

...such as flying squirrels, gliding possums, and colugos, can only glide for short distances. Bats do not flap their entire forelimbs, as birds do, but instead flap their spread-out digits,[4] which are very long and covered with a thin membrane or patagium. Bats are the second largest group of mammals, representing about 20% of all classified mammal species worldwide, with about 1,240 bat species divided into two suborders: the less specialized and largely fruit-eating megabats, or flying foxes, and the highly specialized and echolocating microbats.[5] About 70% of bat species are insectivores. Most of the rest are frugivores, or fruit eaters. A few species, such as the fish-eating bat, feed from animals other than insects, with the vampire bats being hematophagous, or feeding on blood. Bats are present throughout most of the world, performing vital ecological roles of pollinating flowers and dispersing fruit seeds. Many tropical plant species depend entirely on bats for the distribution of their seeds. Bats are important, as they consume insect pests, reducing the need for pesticides. The smallest bat is the Kitti's hog-nosed bat, measuring 29–34 mm (1.14–1.34 in) in length, 15 cm (5.91 in) across the wings and 2–2.6 g (0.07–0.09 oz) in mass.[6][7] It is also arguably the smallest extant species of mammal, with the Etruscan shrew being the other contender.[8] The largest species of bat are a few species of Pteropus and the giant golden-crowned flying fox with a weight......

Baseball Bat

...“Great Story. Choice of wording makes it a difficult read. The baseball bat was broken from the outset when it was bought by the plaintiff. Statement is not clear. Did the plaintiff know the bat was broke when they bought it? Did the plaintiff inspect the bat for damage or how much the cut of the wood strayed from the grain? Without that information I would omit that sentence. Therefore, the defendant should have to return the baseball bat and pay the money back to the plaintiff that plaintiff paid for said bat .Defendant would not be the one returning the bat. The plaintiff bought a baseball bat from the defendant and the baseball bat turned out to be broken since as soon as the defendant used the bat to play baseball, the bat shattered into a million pieces. The statement used the bat to play baseball” could leave room to believe the plaintiff used the bat for other purposes. Shattering into a million pieces certainly violates the implied warranty of merchantability under the Uniform Commercial Code (“U.C.C.”). INDUSTRIA DE CALCADOS MARTINI LTDA. v. MAXWELL SHOE CO., INC. No. 92-P-1322 APPEALS COURT OF MASSACHUSETTS 36 Mass. App. Ct. 268; 630 N.E.2d 299; 1994 Mass. App. LEXIS 274; 23 U.C.C. Rep.

After purchasing the bat, the plaintiff used the bat to play baseball and the bat broke. Plaintiff wants his money back for the defective bat. Issue Presented The issue is whether the implied warranty of merchantability was violated and plaintiff is entitled to a refund. Applicable Law Under the Uniform Commercial Code §2-314 Implied Warranty, Merchantability, Usage of Trade, products sold must meet standards to satisfy the intended purpose for that product. If in fact the product does not meet those purposes, then it is deemed to be defective and in violation of the warranty of merchantability. U.C.C. § 2-314. Industria De Calcados Martini Ltda. v. Maxwell Shoe Co., 36 Mass. App. Ct. 268 (Mass. App. Ct. 1994). In this case the court found “that Martini was liable for breach of the implied warranty of merchantability, because the shoes received by Maxwell were defective and could not be sold by Maxwell in that condition.” The court affirmed that goods must be fit for the ordinary purpose for which such goods are intended. Dudzik v. Klein's All Sports, 158 Misc. 2d 72 (N.Y. J. Ct. 1993).

Virginia Big Eared Bat

...The Virginia Big Eared Bat (corynorthinus townsendii virginianus) The Purpose of this recovery plan is to restore self-sustaining populations of Virginia’s Big Ear Bat. The taxonomy of this species is that it is in the class Mammalia, order chiroptera family vespertilionidae, genus corynorthinus, species corynorthinus townsendii, subspecies corynorthinus townsendii virginianus. (ITIS, 2015) The Virginia Big Eared Bat is a mid-sized bat that weighs around seven to twelve grams. Its body is 9.8 cm long and the ears that it is named after are 2.5 cm long. It has distinctive facial glands on both sides of its nose. The fur on both the ventral and dorsal sides of the bat is mono-colored and brown. (Kunz and Martin, 1982; Reynolds and Fernald, 2015) The US distribution of the Virginia Big Eared Bat is in areas of East-Central Kentucky, parts of West Virginia, northern portions of North Carolina, and in the westernmost parts of Virginia in the James and Potomac River tributary valleys. (Sullivan, 2009) The distribution within Virginia is in six eastern counties. At this moment it is known to take residence within three caves in Tazewell County during the summer, and five caves spread through the Highland, Bland and Tazewell counties during the winter. It is only one of two Virginia bat species which roost in caves in the summer. Also it is not that they live in just any cave they only live within limestone caves. There are also only three known maternity colonies. (Virginia......

College Baseball Bat Rules

...controversial use of metal bats. While these bats allow players to hit the ball harder and farther than a typical wood bat could, they also cause injuries to players and, occasionally, spectators. The technology of baseball bats has greatly evolved over the years, allowing players to hit baseballs further, harder, and easier than ever before. During the 2011 college baseball season, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) put a rule into effect that requires college baseball teams to use a new type of metal bat that has affects similar to those of wood bats. Between faster developing technology and players using old metal bats, which gave a trampoline type effect when a ball hit them, the game of baseball was looking dangerous. The NCAA was forced to change their rules regarding bats used during the game. The new rule that requires teams to use the new bats, which act more as a wood bat, has a positive effect on the game. NCAA baseball has become one of college’s top sports. Fans from across the country travel to Omaha, Nebraska every summer to attend the College World Series in hope that their team may win a national title. This year, college baseball has put a rule in effect that may change the game forever. The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper states that this rule requires all bats used by NCAA baseball teams to be under a certain bat-ball coefficient of restitution, also known as BBCOR. The BBCOR is essentially what gives bats the “trampoline effect”......

Aluminum Bats vs. Wooden Bats

...History Why Aluminum Bats should be Banned from the NCAA Crack! That was the sound of our nation's pastime in the early days of baseball. For nearly 125, years the wooden bat was used in every level of baseball. In Tom's River, New Jersey, the little league World Series is held every summer. Ping! This is the only sound that a spectator will hear during one of those baseball games. What happened to the old-fashioned crack of the bat? The wooden bat has been used in professional baseball since the game's establishment in 1864. An aluminum bat is more dangerous than a wooden bat due to the advanced technology of the aluminum bat, but offers a greater impact to a ball than a wooden bat could. For college ball players hoping to make it to the majors, they should be using the equipment required by the MLB in order to be the most prepared. Also, it makes it harder for scouts to determine how a player will perform under different conditions. This is why I believe the NCAA should play with the same standards as the MLB. The baseball bat controversy has been lingering over amateur baseball since the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) allowed the use of aluminum bats for the first time in 1974 (Adelson). Every year there is another injury to a pitcher as a result of the aluminum bat due to its exit velocity. The exit velocity of a ball plays a key role in determining the level of risk of injury. It is defined as the speed of the ball off the bat. The standard......
