Express Scripts The company Express Scripts is known for their leading home delivery, specialty pharmacy services and for having the best-known pharmacy benefit management service (Express Scripts, 2015).

...Group 6: Script in English- August 29, 2013 Present Tense and Present Perfect Tense of the Verb Interview: Pork Barrel-To Inspire or To Expire? Members: G-10 Precious Ann R.

Jacinto- Anti-Pork Barrel B-02 John Paulo C. Buela- Anti-Pork Barrel Script: (play video clip) Precious: Pork barrel is a slang term used when politicians or governments "unofficially" undertake projects that benefit a group of citizens in return for that group's support or campaign donations. This spending mostly benefits the needs of a small select group despite the fact that the entire community's funds are being used. Alyssa: One possible derivation for the phrase comes from the practice of country stores keeping a barrel of salted pork open and available to the public. Certain high-ranking citizens would come by daily to dip into this common fund. Precious and Alyssa: Good morning everyone! I am Precious and I am Alyssa, (P)and today we will talk hear two different sides, (A)explaining why they are favor or against of this benefit.(B)This is Pork Barrel- To inspire or to expire? Precious: This morning we have two pairs of respected politicians in our country. Alyssa: You are right.

Express Scripts

...It Central America’s most densely populated as well as the smallest country. Although San Salvador serves as the capital city, San Miguel and Santa Ana are other important commercial and cultural centers (Ramon, and Valdes, 2000). The main language is Spanish. Therefore, as a company, Express Script can do well by having initial operations in one of the three centers. Also hiring Spanish-speaking workers can help. Cultural attitudes toward women and children Children are taught early and expected to behave respectfully towards their elders. This involves use of respectful terms of address and also in greetings. In addition, they should obey and comply with requests or orders from the adults. Once children reach six or seven years, they can be reprimanded or hit if they do not comply with requests made by adults, answer back or complain. Parents also use shaming method to discipline their children (Mahler, 1995). To do this, they complain loudly about the guilty child to another child or adult when the child is within earshot. Shaming is usually used if the child has not completed the assigned chores, is dressed improperly or has performed poorly in schoolwork. This is important for Express Script employees from other countries who might find this strange. Women are also expected to respect men and should not under any circumstances raise voice to them. In addition, they must serve food on demand. Education level of workers in the country There is compulsory basic......

Federal Express

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Federal Express is seeking the way to increase the volume of Courier Pack which has tremendous growth kpotential for the company. Their goal is to increase the Courier Pack volume from 1300 to 6000 per day. However, shipping managers are avoiding a risk of choosing unapproved carriers and Federal Express lacked marketing efforts. Therefore, to achieve the goal, I recommend (1) Federal Express to use various advertising methods such as TV, magazines, newspapers, and radio (2) to focus on benefits of using Courier Pak and (2) to give enough education about the feature of Courier Pak to executives who make decisions. ANALYSIS Value Proposition of Courier Pak Courier Pak is a viable product and has huge opportunity because first of all, considering the delivery of documents or other small items are 870,000 pieces per day, the potential market for Courier Pack is huge if the item is weighted less than 2lb. Second, the variable cost of Courier Pak is $4.25 which is less than the cost of Priority One Package, $10.60 and Standard Air Service Package, $9.21. It implies that Courier Pak is more profitable. Third, Exhibit 4 shows that Courier Pak has unfilled potential because the sales had doubled in the past year even though Courier Pak prices had been increased three times. Fourth, the average weight of Courier Pak is one pound while the average weight of Priority One and Standard Service package is about 14pounds. Taking a cargo-carrying capacity of 6200......

UPS החזיקה 25% מהשוק המקומי והייתה החברה הגדולה בעולם למשלוח חבילות. Airborne Express החזיקה 16% מהשוק המקומי וצמחה יותר מ-2 המתחרות הגדולות שלה. Airborne שונה מ-2 המתחרות הגדולות בכך שהיא מתמקדת בלקוחות עסקיים, ומתמקדת בעלות נמוכה לעומת UPS ו FedEx אשר מתמקדות יותר באיכות השירות. תחרות המחירים בענף חזקה מאוד בעיקר על לקוחות עסקיים ומחירי השילוח יורדים דבר שמקטין את שולי הרווח של החברות בעיקר עקב הוצאות תפעול גבוהות. בנוסף עקב עלות ציוד גבוהה מאוד חסמי היציאה מהענף מאוד גבוהים. כוח המתחרים גבוה. כוח המיקוח של הלקוחות הלקוחות מתחלקים לעסקים ואנשים פרטיים, וכן לקוחות קבועים ולקוחות מזדמנים. הבחירה בין החברות השונות מתבצעת על סמך מחירי המשלוח, אמינות החברה, מותג, אפשרות לעקוב אחר החבילות , שירות לקוחות וכו' . כוח המיקוח של הלקוחות הגדולים – עסקים......

Airborne Express

...Summary: After a highly successful quarter in the extremely competitive express mail industry, Airborne Express managers are assessing the firm’s current competitive position within the shipping industry. Although they are a much smaller company than their two main competitors, UPS and FedEx, they are looking to see how they can continue to maintain their healthy growth in the industry. Airborne is in a unique position, as they are significantly smaller than their major competitors, but still have managed to acquire a high position in the market. How can they continue this growth? Opportunities -International expansion needs with increased globalization in commerce. -Partnership with RPS as a way to increase ground delivery network while still maintaining low costs for clients -Major opportunity to be seen as a “low cost” alternative to premium carriers FedEx and UPS, as Airborne has a much more efficient target clientele. Provide a minimal “bells and whistles” service to their clients with low overhead costs. STRATEGY Ground delivery services: Airborne should continue to “hand select” their clients based on mutually beneficially needs; clients’ needs for cost-efficient and personalized shipping, and Airborne’s need for customers with relatively consistent shipping needs to help keep their costs down. -Start by continuing to leverage their partnership with RPS, which could help them harness some economies of scale cost advantages more similar to their larger......

...Script of Lovers' Path : A Tale of Cupid and Psyche Note: credits to Edith Hamilton, author of Greek Mythology Book, other writers on net which is my source of conceptualizing the details, composers and artist of all the music and sound effects for the soundtracks. Prelude : Story Teller: (Forever In Love: Sax Instrumental) Cupid and Psyche is a story about love. It is also about beauty, truth, and goodness, for these are three aspects of love: and it is about death, the hereafter, and rebirth. Its simplicity touches our hearts, and at the same time tantalizes our minds with hints of teachings that youth experienced during the higher degrees of initiation. It deals about human consciousness, with its fall from on high, its captivity in realms of material illusion, its ages-long wanderings, and its metamorphosis as it awakens and recollects with increasing clarity its divine origin and nature. Hence love endeavours to rise, as a butterfly freed from its chrysalis, into higher dimensions where it lives among the immortals.  Cupid and Psyche is indeed a story of love, a love with transcendent power to raise the soul to divine awareness. As such, this is a love story to be cherished during those dark and silent moments that sanctify our lives. : My friends……the beautiful story of Cupid and Psyche…. Music : harp and lyre instrumental ( 30 seconds) SCENE I. (open curtain – stage 1) Narration : (background music : prayer to the goddess)Olympus was the residence of the......

...!The script is solid overall and succeeds in presenting a clear, interesting story. The characters are memorable and distinct. I only have a few recommendations for improving the script. !1. The relationship between Jake and Polly !I think it would be nice to have some more background on their relationship together. At some point the reason they are together should be made clear. It would raise the stakes once Antonio becomes involved and allow us to see a more complete character arc for both of them. Without it, some of the dialogue, tension, and conflicts sometimes feel a little bit forced or unrealistic, particularly on page 58, 68, and 77. Particularly on page 77, instead of saying “So I’m selfish now,” maybe Polly can say something acknowledging she made a mistake. That way, Jake will seem more in the wrong once he says something hurtful and it will make even more sense as to why Polly almost hooks up with Antonio. !2. Polly’s Transformation !Much of Polly’s transformation throughout the middle of the script seems a bit shallowly presented—merely through outfit changes and her growing acceptance of Antonio’s taboo behavior and ideas. She mentions that Jake wants to change her, but it seems more that he just wants to bring the old her back. It would be nice to have clarification on that change and why it is so hurtful to her that Jake doesn’t seem to like it. This relates to the tension I addressed in #1. I think there needs to be a moment where Polly fully recognizes...

She arrives ten minutes before her appointment and signs in. Since this is her first visit, she hands the receptionist her personal information. The receptionist inputs all her information in the computer and asks for her insurance card. Once that is entered, she then asks her to pay up front the visit fee. Susie pays the fee. She then takes a seat and waits to be called. Nearby on the table are some magazines that catch her attention. She proceeds to look through them. After 25 minutes of waiting she is called. She follows the assistant to a room, where her vital signs are checked and answers questions raised about the purpose of her visit. The doctor soon arrives and Susie is taken to another room to be checked by her doctor.

...ENG 3U1 - Script Theme: Never give up until you reach your goal The night before the finals in the basketball tournament game, Josh and his friends are at a restaurant for a meeting at Pizza Pizza where they would talk about tomorrow’s basketball game. The meeting is happening because his friends want to make an agreement that if they are down in points, they would give the ball to Josh to make a comeback since he is the best player on the team. Joe: The team that we are going to face tomorrow is very hard to go up against. Josh, our teammates already made a decision to give you the ball in the final moments of the game to make a comeback if we are down in points. Josh: No! Can you give that job to someone else? I can’t be the one to handle all of that pressure Bob: You’re going to be fine. Don’t worry. Josh: I’m not going to do it. That’s way too much pressure. Rick: You have to do it since you are the best player on the team. Josh: Fine, I’ll do it. After the meeting at Pizza Pizza, Josh would continue to think about the decision that the team made for the finals in the basketball tournament game. Josh: (talking to himself) Our team is really good. How hard can the St. Henry basketball team be? I’m sure that we won’t be down in points.

I really didn’t have a choice, did I? At the rehearsals the next day, Ms. Garber called our attention. Ms. Garber: As we all know, we will be doing the play- The Christmas Angel. And this year will be very special because Jamie Sullivan would be the Christmas Angel. Let’s all clap for her. (clap) And also we have a change in casting, formerly Eddie was casted as Tom Thornton but now, acting for the role of Tom Thornton would be Landon Carter. (clap) Now, the first thing I want all of you to do is memorize your scripts and work well with your co-actors. Now, go on. Everybody now. (Scene shifts) (People moving around with scripts in hand) My noble feelings about doing the play had worn off by the second day of rehearsals.

Margaret: You’re doing the play with Jamie Sullivan? Erica: Are you insane or just plain stupid? Margaret: Looks like you got a crush on Jamie. FRIENDS: (laugh) (PART 3) So the night of the play came, many people watched.
