Throughout the video clip, the teachers who were interviewed expressed their perspectives and deep concernment about major challenges American students face today. Many of which I strongly agree such as higher education becoming mediocre because of the students’ underachievement due to a lack of preparation, higher education becoming a market driven business, and the overall inefficiency in undergraduate educational systems. The system cannot show whether or not students are learning something in college, despite the fact that students are lacking studying skills. Students face many obstacles one of them being a lack of preparation for higher education. Students are graduating from K-12 but do not carry either the tools or the discipline or good studying skills to follow though college. Another obstacle students are facing is money. Seventy-two percent of college the students work either full-time or part-time. Going to college is part of the American dream but the fact is that it is no longer affordable. According to statistics, one in four students don’t get to sophomore year for various reasons including money. And the truth is that the new America is more market driven than it was thirty or forty years ago. Colleges and Universities in America are using selectivity and prestige as a hook to generate funds. And the reality is that we all find ourselves competing to stay on top in society; making college a necessity to stay in the middle class even if the entire educational system has taken a turn around. I strongly disagree with the fact that professors are far interested in wanting to develop a…
measures, one of the most successful products in business history. Nearly 200 million iPhones have been sold in four and a half years, 37 million of them in the last three months of 2011. Apple's market cap has soared from $104 billion in June 2007, when the first iPhone was sold, to $480 billion today. No doubt, the iPhone is a revenue machine. Last quarter, it generated $24.4 billion in revenue for Apple (AAPL), greater than the $20.9 billion Microsoft (MSFT) made in all of its various businesses…

made in a vacuum, nor are they

the ever-increasing costs attributed to poor

The Expense of Education
In our society today, the students’ biggest concern has turned into not “am I going to make the grades”, but to “am I going to be able to afford college”. Now not every student has to face this concern but a great majority of today’s students do. Tuition is increasing at a rate that dramatically outpaces median family income. Student-loan debt is chasing ever-rising tuition like a dog chasing it’s tail. Education is something that is needed in everyone’s…
In modern times, China has taken on an important role in world civilization. China is a huge component in the world’s economy, culture, and population. China currently has the fastest growing economy in the world, and is home to 1.3 billion people. China’s vast expanse of land gives the country a large amount of diversity and character. The culture, weather, language, and food in China varies tremendously by region.
When I was little and would think of China, I would envision rice…

Consumers Driven By Customization
Self-expression has increasingly become an important part of society and is best facilitated by the ability to personalize the products we invest in. Whether it is a pair of shoes or a brand new laptop, individuals want to customize the products they buy to best fit themselves. Almost everything we own has been tailored to our interests. It may be as simple as a desktop background, or as complex as the processor in a computer, nonetheless it adds a personal touch…
Are Markets Driven by Fact or Emotion?
by Craig Pickering, 25 April, 2009
Are all markets now ruled by irrational emotions? Are the days of predicting trends by
drawing intricate graphs gone forever?
With the major banks improving their market share way beyond their own expectations, and
this despite them reducing mortgage broker commissions and not passing on the full
Reserve Bank of Australia rate decreases, they can be forgiven for thinking that Christmas
definitely came early this year…
