This Case study is an example of what happens when life gets in the way. Mr. Rogers originally called a meeting with Jeff Dean and Celeste Brown to go over any questions the Mr. Dean had in regards to the survey findings. Mr. Rogers had to excuse himself from the meeting for personal reasons and instructed Ms. Brown to find out what questions Mr. Dean had. He then instructed her to run the analysis and they would go over the results the following day. Ms. Brown ended up with six questions that Mr. Dean was especially interested in. (Burns, A., Bush, R. (2006) p518) The problem with this case study is even though Ms. Brown may be a competent employee she isn’t Mr. Rogers. Mr. Rogers called the meeting and has his own agenda in regards to the survey findings. Unless Mr. Brown and Mr. Rogers are on the exact same page she may not be able to determine the right questions that Mr. Dean may ask: furthermore, her analysis may be in complete depending on what information she has taken form Mr. Dean. Mr. Rogers should have rescheduled the meeting so that he could ensure all pertinent areas regarding the results of the survey and questions were adequately addressed. The strengths of this case are apparent in that it is assumed that Ms. Brown has a good understanding of what Mr. Rogers wants. If she is able to accurately gather the information from Mr. Dean in regards to his concerns about the survey, then her analysis should be accurate: however this will not be known until the following day when Mr. Rogers and Ms. Brown go over the results. There is an apparent weakness in this case study in that Mr. Rogers is not present for the fact finding portion in regards to what questions Mr. Dean may have. Not to mention Mr. Rogers has left the analysis part up to Ms. Brown. It’s good that he is going over the results but, it would be better if he was present for the entire process. Ms. Brown has a great opportunity to show case her talents and prove to Mr. Rogers that she is capable of performing the analysis and gathering the pertinent information from Mr. Dean. Ms. Brown has been able to compile six questions that Mr. Dean is especially interested in and this should prove to be adequate in addressing both his concerns and Mr. Rogers concerns in regards to the results of the survey. As far as a threat for this case study it may occur if Ms. Brown does not accurately perform her analysis or if she has gathered the wrong information. If she is unable to meet the needs of Mr. Dean then the hopes of being able to conduct future business with him are not likely. For this case study the author does not provide any recommend solutions, but rather lays out what Ms. Brown will be doing and presents us with the six questions that she has gathered from Mr. Dean: however it would have been better if Mr. Rogers was present for the entire process and as the perceived manager, he should have made himself available. In order to see if there is a difference between the two groups (male & female) you should test the null hypothesis “or the hypothesis that the difference in their population parameters is equal to zero”. (Burns, A., Bush, R. (2006) p493) you can utilize either a t-test or analysis of variance to answer whether or not The Hobbit’s Choice is more appealing to men or women. After going to (hobbitdata.sav) and looking at the survey data matrix I did my own t-test for equality of variance: | | | F | Sig. | t | df | Sig. (2-tailed) | Mean Difference | Std. Error Difference | | | | | | | | | | | Equal variances assumed | | | 0.38 | 0.538 | 0.282 | 398 | 0.778 | 0.35 | 0.124 | | | | | | | | | | | Equal variances not assumed | | | | | 0.282 | 397.852 | 0.778 | 0.35 | 0.124 |

According to my calculations there is no significant difference for the Hobbit’s Choice to be more appealing to women or men.
2. With respect to the restaurant’s atmosphere, is a string quartet preferred over a jazz combo?
For this question I would utilize a paired sample Statistics as we are comparing two questions not two groups. The results are that pair 1 prefer a string quartet: 2.50 | 400 | 1.420 | .071 |

Prefer jazz combo: 3.70 | 400 | 1.221 | .061 |

Using the above information the average number of respondents that prefer the jazz combo is equal to 3.70. While the average number of respondents that prefer the string quartet is 2.50. So it is apparent that the jazz combo is preferred over the string quartet: meaning that Mr. Dean should go with the jazz combo.
3. In general, establishments are appealing to higher income households, while they are less appealing to lower income households. Is this pattern the case for the Hobbit’s Choice Restaurant?
ANOVA:

According to the significant values the top three income groups show a higher mean level of appeal then the bottom groups. If that is correct then the pattern for the Hobbit’s Choice Restaurant is in line with other establishments. Meaning that establishments are appealing to higher income households and he should market his restaurant accordingly.

The Hobbit and Myth

...Exploring the Elements of a Hero’s Journey in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit In most stories there are a sequence of events that take place from start to finish that help as unspoken guidelines. These guidelines help give shape to many fairy tales and heros adventures that are found in stories from all time lines and geographical walks of life. Once the reader becomes aware of what these events are and how to look for them it becomes easy to spot these patterns and examples in films, literature, theatrical productions, etc. The goal of this paper is to familiarize the reader with a few different authors concepts and criteria that commonly occur in a vast majority of stories that contain any sort of adventurer or hero-type figure. In the case of J.R.R. Tolkien’s tale of The Hobbit, when broken down and analyzed using concepts from Joseph Campbell, and occasionally Marie von Franz, and Vladimir Propp, the reader may use their concept to read the book with insight and clarity that opens up a whole new way of looking at the hobbits adventure and the journey he partakes in. After one has a knowledge of the sequence of events that help to make up an adventure story it is hard to look at many books and films you’ve already seen in the same way. My hopes is that by the end of this, you will see The Hobbit in a new light. The Hobbit embodies significant aspects of the “hero’s journey” and the exploration of these using different authors works helps the reader to understand the......

...that will shape and mold to to prepare them for their final test. Our hero will transition from the known world where he thinks he know who he is and descend down into the Nadir, the darkest and lowest point in their journey, where he will be tested both physically and mentally. That is the case for Bilbo Baggins, a shy and reluctant hobbit in J.R.R Tolkein's The Hobbit, who was protected from the perils and dangers of the real world in the comfort of his hobbit-hole. In his journey, Bilbo has to make many judgments that leave him torn between his loyalty to his friends and doing the right thing. But it is these obstacles that fully initializes him as a true hero. In the beginning of the story, Bilbo seemed like the most unlikely hero when Gandalf and thirteen dwarves came and asked for him to join them on the quest, but in the end, Bilbo faces many situations, challenges and develop traits like selflessness, courage ,and wisdom that is essential to all heroes and will ultimately determine and define who he is, and whether if he will succeed as a hero or not. A hero will rise when there is a call for a challenge and they could accept two choices: fight or flight. For Bilbo, the challenge comes when Gandalf and thirteen dwarves come and asked him to join them on a quest and play the role of a burglar to vanquish the terror of the countryside, Smaug. But more importantly, get back the treasure that rightfully belonged to them. When he first heard of the news, Bilbo seemed......

The Hobbit Review

...Review of The Hobbit J. R. R. Tolkien made the Hobbit as a book back in 1937. Later on, the book was published as a movie in 2012. The movie is divided in 3 parts, with one year separating the publishing. In the movie, you follow a young Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. As he is set out on an "unexpected journey" (Which is also the title of the first movie,) to the Lonely Mountain with a very spirited group of Dwarves to reclaim their stolen mountain home, from a dragon named Smaug. The group has company by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, and Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led be the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. The journey takes the little group deep into the wild. On their way they march through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East of the Lonely Mountain, they must first escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever, Gollum. Deep down in the bottom of the lonely mountain Bilbo is trapped with the creature Gollum. The unassuming Bilbo Baggins has not only discovered a courage that even surprises him, he also gains Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful powers. If you compare the movie and the book, you will discover a lot if comparison and you can see all the red lines pulled together towards a very exciting adventure. The book and the movie have the exactly same intro,......

The Hobbit

...The Hobbit The Hobbit has been out as a book for many years now, and have been improved over several editions. Now the movie have finally arrived in the cinemas, and will be split in 3 parts. The movie is very detailed, for the first time more so, than the book, but there is of course only 300 pages while the movies is 2 and a half hours long and split into 3 parts. That is a really great thing because you just get sucked right into The Shire, and follow the dwarfs, Gandalf and Bilbo around. The story is about a stolen treasure, guarded by the dragon Smaug, but stolen from the dwarfs which they are trying to retrieve. They need a burglar in their party, and they have gone to Gandalf, an old wizard for guidance and he recommends Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit from The Shire. Gandalf and the dwarfs visit Bilbo to join their journey, but after a lot of trouble they get him convinced. In this journey they experience a lot of things, some that the dwarfs had expected, but also some quite unexpected. This adventuring was all new to Bilbo and he tried to fit in, but he caused more trouble than good in the start. Then they get captured by goblins in a mountain, where the dwarfs think that Bilbo is lost forever, but he manages to escape the goblins, and a forgotten foul beast, by the help of a mysterious ring. Then they get trapped by orcs, and the dwarf leader, Thorin Oakshield, faces his old enemy, it's a struggled fight, and it ends up with Bilbo coming to the rescue, and finally......

Sterotyping the Hobbit

...Stereotyping The Hobbit Stereotypes are qualities given to a group of people based on their race, or the qualities they have. They take something that is partly true about someone and believe it is true about the whole race. For example, in Asia they hold education very highly and Asian people typically do very well in school. The stereotype regarding Asians is that they are all very good at math. This is not true. I have some Asian friends and they struggle with math just as much as I do. Many stereotypes exist today. They are bad because we just assume we what the person is like without getting to know them. The stereotyped image I brought into class was a picture of an Italian man. He had his hair spiked up, his skin spray tanned orange, and was wearing a wife-beater. This image is how we perceive Italian men to be. We view them this way because that is how we see them on the show Jersey Shore. All of the people on the show are dressed, and look like the picture I brought in. In reality only some Italians look that way. The majority of them look and act like ordinary people. Just because someone is Italian does not mean that they dress and act like what we think they should. You cannot judge someone based on how they look. In J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, this proves very true. There are a few characters throughout this story that break the stereotypes of themselves. The biggest example of this is with Mr. Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo is a hobbit. Hobbits are described as tiny,...

Factors Affecting Guest Choice of Hotel and Restaurant

...BACKGROUND Introduction A restaurant is an establishment which prepares and serves food and drink to customers in return for money. Meals are generally served and eaten on premises, but many restaurants also offer take-out and food delivery services. There are many reasons why the restaurant businesses failed. Food catering establishments which may be described as restaurants were known since the 11th century in Kaifeng, China's northern capital during the first half of the Song Dynasty (960–1279). With a population of over 1,000,000 people, a culture of hospitality and a paper currency, Kaifeng was ripe for the development of restaurants. Probably growing out of the tea houses and taverns that catered to travellers, Kaifeng's restaurants blossomed into an industry catering to locals as well as people from other regions of China. Restaurants catered to different styles of cuisine, price brackets, and religious requirements. Even within a single restaurant much choice was available, and people ordered the entree they wanted from written menus In starting a new business like a restaurant you must have the strategy on how you can attract your customers in Balanga Bataan.

Hobbit Essay

...Assessment 4 – Essay Q: Why did the New Zealand government offer Warner Brothers incentives to film “The Hobbit” in New Zealand? Analyse how this will affect the New Zealand film industry and New Zealand society. The movie “The Hobbit”, directed and produced by New Zealand’s own Peter Jackson, is a two-part film based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel of the same name. It is a prequel to ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film trilogy. The film is being shot right here in New Zealand, but only because of our governments’ intervention. Warner Brothers were considering moving production elsewhere due to a Do Not Work order released from the International Federation of Actors. It was the fear that our tourism industry surrounding the film would be hit hard that caused a national uproar, so on 25th of October 2010, thousands of New Zealanders organised protest rallies imploring that production remained in New Zealand. It was two days later that the New Zealand government and Warner Bros executives decided to keep the Hobbit being filmed in New Zealand as originally planned. On 24th September 2010, the International Federation of Actors Do Not Work order advised members that “The producers…have refused to engage performers on union-negotiated agreements” This would subject the actors who work on the film to possible displacement from the union. This is what caused Warner Bros and New Line Cinema to consider taking production elsewhere. The New Zealand government came to an agreement between the...

Hobbit Dispute

...Actors New Zealand (NZ) actors were virtually powerless during the Hobbit dispute. Many had worked under non-union contracts for years in local productions and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which was inferior in comparison to many unionised actors overseas. This would be repeated in the Hobbit production whereby actors would work as independent contractors and not employees. Thus, the Hobbit producers would have absolute control over NZ workers who would not have the protection of minimum wage or working conditions that they could under a collective employment contract. To address these issues for the Hobbit project, some NZ actors sought to negotiate better conditions through their union. However, they were shut out as Hobbit producers refused to engage in bargaining and deemed it illegal for them to have a collective agreement with independent contractors (Bridgeman & McLaughlin 2011, p.3). Unions Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) is an Australian union which the NZ Actors Equity joined in 2006. MEAA was no match against a formidable opponent in Warner Brothers in both power and strategy. A global conglomerate such as Warner Brothers had little to fear against a union organisation with a few hundred NZ actors. McAndrew & Risak (2011, p.72) infer that it was a naive strategy for an Australian union to challenge such a powerful organisation with an aggressive yet ineffective boycott of Hobbit contracts. This played into Warner Brother’s hands as they were......

The Hobbit’s Choice: a Restaurant

...The Hobbit’s Choice: A Restaurant Jeff Dean is a restaurant supply sales representative. He works in a large metropolitan area and calls on many of the restaurant owners in the city. His dream is to one day own his own restaurant. He had saved a substantial amount of his earnings during his 15 years in the restaurant‐supply business and had recently gone over some financial figures with his banker. He and the banker both agreed that he had enough capital to get serious about investing in his dream. His banker, Walker Stripling, was very optimistic about Dean’s potential for success, even though he had seen many failed attempts in the restaurant business. Stripling had confidence in Dean because he thought that because of his restaurant‐supply experience, few people knew the restaurant business as well as Dean did. Dean’s idea was not try to compete with everyone else. There were too many restaurants that, except for their décor and a few menu items, offered little new to the market. He had seen many of the “metoo” restaurants falter after a short time of operation. His plan was to offer something not currently available in the market, even though the city was fairly large. Dean had traveled extensively during his career. His primary purpose in traveling had been to attend trade shows in the restaurant‐supply business. There were usually several of these a year, and Dean had been diligent about attending these shows as he learned about new products and services......
