Coffee Project

...Kopi Luwak coffee comes from the Indonesian island of Sumatra, an area well-known for its excellent coffee. Also native to the area is a small civit-like animal called a Paradoxurus. That's the scientific name, the locals call them luwaks. These little mammals live in the trees and one of their favorite foods is the red, ripe coffee cherry. They eat the cherries, bean and all. While the bean is in the little guy's stomach, it undergoes chemical treatments and fermentations. The bean finishes its journey through the digestive system, and exits. The still-intact beans are collected from the forest floor, and are cleaned, then roasted and ground just like any other coffee. The resulting coffee is said to be like no other. It has a rich, heavy flavour with hints of caramel or chocolate. Other terms used to describe it are earthy, musty and exotic. The body is almost syrupy and it's very smooth. One must wonder about the circumstances that brought about the first cup of Kopi Luwak coffee. Who would think to (or even want to) collect and roast beans out of animal feces? Perhaps a native figured it was easier to collect the beans from the ground this way, rather than having to work harder and pick them from the trees? We'll likely never know. But because of the strange method of collecting, there isn't much Kopi Luwak produced in the world. The average total annual production is only around 500 pounds of beans. Because of the rarity of this coffee, the price is quite......

Eco/212 Final Project New House Decision

...Final Project: New House Decision ECO/212 February 20, 2010 The arrival of a new baby is a major lifestyle change. The decision to buy a house takes into account pros and cons of making a major purchase. A studio apartment is a difficult living arrangement with a new baby, because it is small and without a separate space for a baby. The studio apartment is not in proximity to schools or services, which are needed for childcare. A house offers space for baby, a yard, schools, and services. The pros of home ownership offer many benefits not available with a rental property. Trade-offs The studio apartment although close to downtown night life, is not close to schools, churches, or shopping centers. This location worked well for the past few years, because children were not part of the equation. Some trade-offs are required before making a housing purchase. Proximity to night life is enjoyable; however, caring for a new baby will limit a carefree lifestyle. Purchasing a home will require a down-payment and closing costs. In addition to a monthly mortgage payment, utilities, homeowner dues, repairs, maintenance, lawn care, insurance, and taxes are costs of ownership. When renting the renter does not have homeowner dues, lawn car, property taxes, and most repairs and maintenance costs. Homeowners unlike renters can make home modifications, without ramifications. Equity in a home increases the homeowner’s personal wealth. Homeownership also signifies stability. A......

Analysis Project: Kudler Fine Foods Outsourcing and in-House Photography

...Analysis Project: Kudler Fine Foods Outsourcing and In-House Photography IT/235 Brook Dennen May 09, 2014 Kudler Fine Foods: Outsourcing and In-House Photography Deciding on whether to outsource your photography to a professional photographer or keep them in-house depends on many factors. There are numerous benefits to outsourcing and using a professional photographer. But, as a business, Kudler Fine Foods must review both the pros and the cons of outsourcing in order to decide if it is the right decision for them or not. Outsourcing the company’s photography allows Kathy Kudler to spend more time working on making the business strive rather than spending valuable time editing photos and images for advertisement purposes. Hiring a professional photographer is less costly than handling their photos in-house. Professional photographers are experts in their fields and Kathy Kudler can relax knowing that the company’s photographs are being worked on by those with immense knowledge in the field. The company’s photographs are a form of money making advertisement, so the cost for professional photographers is minuscule compared to the profit gained by the amount of new customers that will be drawn in. Kathy Kudler should also understand that there are drawbacks to outsourcing the company’s photographs to a professional photographer. When hiring a photographer, there is a risk that Kathy may lose control over that aspect of her business. There needs to be......

...payments for customer convenience and allowing customers to have their meal ready for them when they come into the café just as Papa John’s Pizza has done (Papa John’s Pizza, 2008). This is perfect for people hitting the café on their lunch break. A high priority for the café is setting up an unsecured wifi connection for customers to surf the Internet with their laptops. Café’s aren’t just about sandwiches and coffee, they are about providing a place for social and intellectual gatherings, live music, and poetry readings. Providing free Wi-Fi is a fantastic incentive for bringing customers into the café (BBC News, 2008). The free Internet access will also get the café listed in online directories such as Wi-Fi Free Spot (Wi-Fi Free Spot, 2008), and, while the connection is free, the café can offer the service in a way that a small, collapsible portion of the browser has advertising displayed on it, providing some additional revenue to the café (Fleishman, 2006). Kiosks are definitely a nice touch, and would provide a competitive advantage over other coffee shops and cafes, which do not offer them. Wi-Fi is good for customers with laptops, kiosks are great for customers on their lunch break who don’t have a laptop with them. To keep the kiosks accessible, software will need to limit customers to 20minute sessions during peak hours. 8 Part 3: Telecommunications Considerations for M-Coupons According to NetInformer, a provider of mobile......

A New House Project Week 7

...A New House –Economy Elena Taylor-Bagger XECO/212 April 5, 2015 Terry Blankenship The strength of the economy as a whole can affect the marginal benefit and the marginal cost, which may have an effect on a person purchasing a home. The purchase of a house is one of the largest monetary purchases an individual can make in their lifetime. If the economy is low then real estate prices may go down to compensate accordingly so that the house will sale. This would be an opportune time to purchase. If the economy is high or strong then the prices are more competitive based on the amount of people that are willing to buy houses. “If measured marginal costs and benefits are provided, it is much easier to calculate the ideal price and quantity.” How does the removal of the tax deductions on mortgage interest affect the housing market? Removal of the tax deduction on mortgage interest affects the housing market by causing the demand for homes to decrease and therefore housing prices to fall even more. Today people that purchase houses count on being able to deduct the mortgage interest from their taxes the following year. People will buy houses up to late December in order to get this deduction. Having a tax deduction on purchasing a home is part of the incentive. If you can purchase a home and deduct the interest paid when you file your taxes, it works to your benefit. If the tax is removed then monthly payments are higher as well. How do other changes in government......

Xeco 212 Final Project: a New House Decision

...Final Project: A New House-Decision Anna Schultz XECO/212 October 30, 2011 Chiara Yates Final Project: A New House-Decision Many of our decisions are influenced by the state of our economy. Purchase of big ticket items such as appliances, furniture, autos, and a home follow a line of investigation before the decision to purchase is implemented. The purchase of a home is one of the largest investments made in a lifetime, and uses many factoring influences before purchase. This paper will show how economics plays into the decision of the purchase. One of the first areas to consider is what the trade-off will be in purchasing a home versus the benefit of renting. What we need to consider is if purchasing a home and providing more space, and living closer to shopping and schools, justifies the added cost in utilities and maintenance of a home. The opportunity costs are another factor to consider. We can vacation closer to home instead of the trip to Europe we had hoped to take. Another option would be to maintain our existing auto instead of buying a new car. We need to research the marginal costs we would need to pay out. These include the amount of down payment, closing costs, taxes, insurance fees, and moving expenses. If we rent a larger apartment, we won’t have those costs, but we also wouldn’t have the benefit of ownership/write-off of interests in loan and property taxes. Monthly rent costs may be as much for a larger apartment versus a home that......
