First, Dell happened. Dell
Computer (www.dell.com) pioneered a new way of making and selling personal computers.
Its customers “custom design” their computers over the Internet or phone. Dell reengineered its “supply chain”: It coordinated its efforts with its suppliers and streamlined its order-taking and production process. It can ship a computer within two days of taking an order. Personal computers lose 1 percent of their value every week they sit on a shelf. Thus, having virtually no inventory is a great advantage to Dell. Compaq tried to adopt Dell’s approach, but with limited success.
The second shock to Compaq came when it acquired a company even larger than itself—Digital Equipment. Mr. Pfeiffer believed that the purchase of Digital, with its huge and respected technical sales force, opened new opportunities for Compaq as a global service company. But combining the two companies proved to be hugely expensive and extremely complicated.
Ultimately Compaq decided to merge with Hewlett-Packard (HP)
(www.hp.com) in order to survive.
After this merger, HP lost significant market share to Dell because its higher cost structure made it hard to compete with Dell on price. Dell created a buzz in the financial press when it decided to enter the computer printing business—a segment that HP had long dominated. Many predicated that
Dell would soon take over printers as well. But just when it appeared that
Dell could not be beat, HP regained its footing and Dell stumbled. HP reduced its costs by adopting many of Dell’s “lean” practices. Thus Dell lost much of its competitive advantage. In addition, computer purchasing habits changed, and Dell wasn’t able to adjust fast…...

...Toast Box is a company related to Bread Talk which sells Singapore style of breakfast like kaya butter toast and traditional Nanyang coffee. This company was established in December as a food stall unit of Food Republic Wisma Atria in Singapore. After that, Toast Box has fast expanded with more than 30 stores to provide the best service and products to their customers. Now, this Singapore local company has been well received in other places, expanding its foothold in Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong and China.

The two parts have its different effects. Toast Box, one of the most popular Singapore style breakfast sellers, also affected by macro environment and microenvironment. As for macro environment, in my opinion, cultural will be the most important part of macro environment to affect Toast Box efficiently.

Rizal Toast to Luna and Hidalgo

...Rizal’s toast to Luna and Hidalgo Rizal delivers a magnificent speech at Restaurant Ingles, Madrid that attended by prominent Spanish artist, newspapermen, and men-of-letters, statesmen and Filipino as well. The speech was Rizal’s toast to the triumph of Juan Luna and Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo. This magnificent speech was greeted with wild ovations, for seldom the Spaniards hear such an oration from the lips of a brown Filipino. And it seems to me that the whole monologue was said in great mediation that in my opinion has commanded the attention of those who came for the dinner. In the first few parts of the speech, Rizal described the surroundings with much romanticism like he is circled by “men of heart” and ” where noble emotions dwell” and “the air is full of empathetic good feeling.” At the time said, Philippines were under much oppression by the Spanish friars that is impossible to talk about it in public unless you would want to be branded as a filibuster.   But in his speech, Rizal fearlessly exclaims the reason why they are gathered and that is to signify an achievement that had shed light into what has turned out to be a dark society as the painting itself portrays. He also gives praise to Hidalgo for illuminating the different ends of the globe and how high a respect he has for them. He claims change is coming as he used the metaphors such as the “illustrious achievements of (Philippines’) children are no longer consummated within the home.” This is a......

...break. Project 2 Imagine you work in a cafe in which toast has always been made under a griller. Due to a number of staff burning themselves and customer complaints about toast being undercooked, a decision has been made that toast will now only be cooked using a toaster. Write a procedure that outlines how to make toast. Include details about: * why the change is being made * what to do * what not to do * how to do it * when it should be done * who should do it * what resources are available * what the expected results are The change was made because there was a problem with the toast, it used to be made under a griller, but there were too many burning accidents and customer´s complains that the toasts were undercooked, that´s why the café bought a regular toaster. Now the employees have to use the new toaster in order to avoid accidents and serve their toasts cooked for the customers so there is no complain. The employees need to remember all the time to cook the toasts in the new toaster, maybe they have the habit to do in the grill but they need to get use to the toaster, if any of the employees use more than once the grill for toast the bread there should be a warning. The employees or the supervisor might put a sign in the kitchen so all of the staff will remember to use the toaster instead of the grill. This should be done every time a customer ask for toasts so they will know for sure that they are offering a good......

Toast

...during the toasts at their formal functions. In an attempt to discourage this, an elaborate and bizarre etiquette has been developed around these toasts. However, this has only succeeded in weeding out the less cunning, ruthless and lucky, with those that remain being true masters of this deadly sport. At the start of the game, players choose a Master or Mistress of Ceremonies (MoC). The MoC starts the round, and at the end of the round the MoC passes to the next player clockwise. The first order of business is ‘The Airing of Grievances’. Should any guests bear a grudge against another, they should state their grievance now, lest any ill feeling be carried forwards into the occassion. 1.  rrange the goblets, one per player, in a A circle in the middle of the table. The MoC places a target card (face-up) pointing at another player of their choice. That targeted player then does the same, but cannot target a player who has already chosen their target this round. Continue in this way for all players, with the final player targeting the MoC. In a round of play, goblets are arranged in a circle in the middle of the table, one in front of each player, such that players can’t see their contents. Players take turns in either secretly placing wine, poison or antidote tokens into the goblets, or switching the goblets around. Each player has a target, and their aim is to ensure that, when the round is ended by someone calling the toast and the......

The History of the Sandwich

...prepare such a thing. The cook later proceeded back with a “sandwich” which consists of just their normal everyday meat between two pieces of toast. This was the perfect finger food to go along with his gambling as it required no use of utensils, and he could still keep his cards in one hand and eat in the other. Even though the cook presented such a meal he was not named as the real creator of the sandwich and was not recorded for successors. Over the years the sandwich evolved too much more than just toast and meat. Recipes were not commonly used in cookbooks in America during the creations of new recipes because many colonial cooks during the 18th century did not think highly of mimicking the British culinary developments and styles of the sandwich. Though some American’s may still have made some type of sandwich they were not blabbing about it in public. After the Revolution and the War of 1812 during the late 1830’s, the Americans began speaking and creating sandwiches widely and publicly without considering copying the British anymore. But there was a difference between American sandwiches and English sandwich. Americans meat of choice was ham and the English traditionally used beef. Now in today’s time cookbooks are full of hundreds of recipes for sandwiches with very different ingredients from the traditional just meat and toast sandwiches. Some of the first sandwiches to be made into recipes were the BLT, and the Club. The term “BLT” , which was known as slang......
