Causes and Consequences of Family Violence
Family violence is difficult to define. Wallace and Roberson (2013), define family violence as any demonstration by persons who are living respectively as a family that results in severe harm to different individuals of the family. They further state that severe injury may include corporeal or emotional maltreatment or an infringement of another family member’s rights and autonomy of choice (Wallace & Roberson, 2013).
The United States Department of Justice (2014) defines family or domestic violence as an example of oppressive conduct in any relationship that is utilized by one person to gain or sustain power and control over another close person. Family violence can be physical, sexual, passionate, financial, or mental activities or coercions that impact someone else. This includes any practices that intimidate, control, humiliate, isolate, frighten, force, debilitate, accuse, hurt, harm, or wound somebody. Family violence can happen to anybody regardless of race, age, sexuality, religion, male or female. It happens in both same-sex and opposite sex relationships and can happen to close partners who are married, living respectively, or dating. Family violence impacts individuals from all walks of life, financial backgrounds, and educational levels (United States Department of Justice, 2014).
Assessment Indicators According to the website, Caring Unlimited (2015), no one can precisely calculate when an abuser’s violence will intensify to life-threatening levels, however, indicators can be used as warning signs that the abuser is reaching that level. It is essential to note that while these indicators are an important assessment tool, the presence or absence of one or more indicators cannot completely gauge…...

...Two Products being Considered for Purchase Kathrine Com/155 January 12, 2014 Two Products being Considered for Purchase As the development of science and technology in today’s society, automobile manufacturers have produced variety types of vehicle for car buyers to choose. Cars are modes of transportation designed with wheels, and are intended to carry passengers. The earliest vehicle or car was born in year 1899; it was a 3.5 horse power single-cylinder engine with 3 seats open car. In the late 1880s and early 1990s, most of the cars are steam-powered. The first internal-combustion-engine-powered car was introduced in the late 1990s and then evolved into the gasoline-internal-combustion-engine-powered car of today. Depending on the manufacturers, cars can come in several types and designs; most of the common two are SUV and sedan. Just about anyone in the market for a family car feels pressure. Should people go for larger and costly SUV, or finding a smaller, more fuel-efficient sedan? They are both very popular for family use, but there are still some differences in definition, overall costs and safety between SUVs and sedans. Even know that most of the buyers are familiar with the definition of “car”, but there still many of them are not comprehended the nature of the SUV and sedan.

Anything that can be offered to a market for attention, acquisition, use, or consumption and that might satisfy a want or need. - Includes: physical objects, services, events, persons, places, organizations, ideas, or some combination thereof. What is a service? Any activity or benefit that one party can offer to another that is essentially intangible and does not result in the ownership of anything can referred as a Service.

Core benefit:- Each level adds more customer value. The most basic level is the CORE BENEFIT which answers the question “What is the buyer really buying?” When designing the products, marketers must first define the core, problem solving benefits or services that consumers seek. People buying a SONY Handycam are buying more than a digital camcorder. They are buying a convenient, high quality way to capture important moments and memories.

The Efficacy of Celebrity Endorsements for Charitable Causes: an Experiment on Consumers’ Purchase Intentions Toward Charity-Linked Products

...The Efficacy of Celebrity Endorsements for Charitable Causes: An Experiment on Consumers’ Purchase Intentions Toward Charity-linked Products Celebrity endorsement has been a prominent practice in marketing for years (Money, Shimp, & Sakano, 2006). Approximately twenty percent of all advertisements worldwide use celebrity endorsements (Shimp & Andrews, 2013). In the United States alone, the use of celebrity endorsers in advertisements has increased from 10 percent to 25 percent over the last decade, and the number is even higher in markets such as India (24 percent), and Taiwan (45 percent) (Crutchfield, 2010). The general belief among practitioners and scholars is that products or brands endorsed by celebrities appear to offer a higher degree of appeal, attention, and enhanced message recall than those without celebrity affiliation (Toncar, Reid, & Anderson, 2007). Agrawal and Kamalura (1995) contended that the impact of celebrity endorsements on stock returns was positive, and suggested that celebrity endorsements were worthwhile investments in the commercial context. Celebrity endorsement is also gathering increasing momentum in attempts to develop public awareness of charitable causes. For example, a growing number of celebrities have become involved in heightening public awareness of poverty in low-income countries (Samman, Auliffe, and MacLachlan, 2009). More recently, even more celebrities around the world have taken on the Ice Bucket Challenge, dousing themselves......

Eco 372 Week 2 Product Purchases & the Economy

...Product Purchases and the Economy ECO/372 October 12, 2015 Product Purchases and the Economy A new car purchase is one that takes a large amount of consideration and budgeting. The most important economic indicators to consider when investing in an automobile purchase are unemployment rates and interest rates. These indicators will assist a person when deciding whether to purchase new or used. Is the right time now or later to purchase a truck? Economic Indicators The automotive sector is a cyclical business. Since it is a cyclical business, changes in the revenues and earnings of automotive companies are more likely due to the state of the economy and the strength of the consumer. Sales in the automotive sector are higher when economic activity is strong and people feel confident about their future economic prospects. In this environment, more people are likely to make an automobile purchase. Clearly, unemployment is a major factor in this environment. People do not feel optimistic about a major purchase when they are unemployed. People without jobs are less likely to have the means to afford a car. Someone with a job is not likely to make a major purchase if he is worried about losing his job. In 2009, the unemployment rate was between 8% and 10%, and auto sales were 9 million on an annualized basis. In March 2015, the unemployment rate was 5.5% and auto sales were 16 million. Interest rates affect the financing costs of......

Product Purchases and the Economy

...Product Purchases and the Economy Jose Velasco ECO/372 November 9, 2015 Matthew Mulyanto Product Purchases and the Economy Macroeconomics is a helpful resource for enabling understanding of factors that affect shifts in supply and demand and pricing of products. Macroeconomics can provide an understanding, for example, of how indicators such as inflation and interest rates can reflect the state of the economy, revealing its relative strengths or weaknesses. Information such as this can be extremely useful in determining whether one should buy a product such as a home, which would necessitate a mortgage and monthly payments. Economic Indicators and the State of the Economy Two economic indicators that reflect the strength of the economy are the inflation rate and interest rates. A stable and low inflation rate, for instance, is viewed worldwide as a necessary means to keeping the economy strong. Banks worldwide, including the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan, and the European Central Bank have published directives stating their primary objective for monetary policy as being “to maintain price stability” (Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, 2006). Others, such as the Bank of England, the Bank of Canada, and the Central Bank of Chile, have a similar goal to “keep inflation low and stable” (Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, 2006). Maintaining a stable inflation rate allows governments to strengthen their economies by......

...Product Purchases and the economy Anthony Norman ECO372 January 25, 2016 Steven Karp Product Purchases and the economy Consumers, such as myself are using more caution when it comes to determining whether or not we should invest in purchasing a new home. There are numerous factors to consider before buying a new home that for example the price and location. I must partake in the necessary research to know what lies ahead for me when it pertains to budgeting and making monthly payments on a new mortgage. The wellbeing of the economy can be a game changer on whether or not I should make such a huge investment as purchasing a new home. Two important economic indicators, which will aid in helping me to determine if buying a new home will be a wise and sound investment, are the interest rates and housing start. Economic Indicators According to Investopedia (2015), an interest rate is the sum charged communicated at a rate of essential, by a loan specialist to a borrower for the utilization of benefits. Interest rates are often shown on a yearly premise, known as the annual rate (APR). The interest rate affects the affordability of buying a home. If the rate increases by 1%, it will have a significant impact on my monthly payment. For example, if I am looking to purchase a home that cost $400,000.00 at an interest rate of 3.0%, I am looking at a mortgage of $1,686.00. If that interest rate were to increase by 1%, my monthly payment would increase by $223.00 with a......

Product Purchases and the Economy

...Product Purchases and the Economy Jessica Cross ECO/372 3/28/2016 Kathleen Byrne Product Purchases and the Economy A lot of times in life there are things we come across that we think we may really want but do no necessarily need at the moment such as a new home, a car, smart phone, or even a kitchen makeover of your dreams. Whatever it may be it is small in no way and most certainly requires budgeting. For instance, if I wanted to purchase a new car I would most certainly want to see what standings the economy is in, and if I would be able to actually afford my purchase over a period of time. Budgeting your money is a great way to ensure that you always have the money for the important things in your life therefore, it is great to see what shape the economy is in before you go out spending that hard earned money on something that you may not absolutely need at the moment or possibly won’t be able to afford over a longer period of time because of the shape of the economy (Bell, 2009). Reflection of the Economy There are indicators that reflect how the economy is doing. Some of these indicators are real GDP, unemployment rates, inflation rates, and interest rates. The two that I feel are big indicators in the economy’s strength are interest rates and unemployment rates. Interest rates are portions of a loan that are charged back to a person for the amount of money that they borrowed. The interest rates are usually added to the payment that the person will be paying...

We support harsher punishment for men who purchase the services of trafficked women, along with increased education for all about women’s rights and the global sex industry. Soroptimist believes that trafficking is one of the most important issues affecting women and girls globally. To that end, we have launched a project called Soroptimists Stop Trafficking, which aims to raise awareness about the problem of sex trafficking, and urges communities to take action to prevent and end it. By disseminating these cards in our local communities (hold up card), we hope to educate and mobilize people around the issue of sex trafficking. Another way Soroptimist works on this issue is to provide women with real options and alternatives. Through our Women’s Opportunity Awards program, we give women cash grants to enter or return to school. The Women’s Opportunity Awards helps women cultivate new skills, further their education and regain independence. Many Women’s Opportunity Award recipients are survivors of physical, sexual or emotional abuse and all have triumphed over daunting challenges.
