A corporation like LID, expert in laser-based and fluorescence analysis technology and applications and so part of high-tech, systems and know-how, is often forced to choose a global strategy. It operates in a global niche and needs access to global resources for their business development and sources of competitive advantages.

...A Customer’s Journey –Singapore International Airlines Section 1: Singapore airlines deals with thousands of passengers every single day, when one situation arises, dealing with that certain situation should be compared, related and confirmed with previous history and events to ensure the most swift and efficient response and action. When Paul Denver walked in to Newark airport with his family, and sick daughter, Singapore airlines was very helpful and empathetic. Using emotional connections instead of blind automatic function she took appropriate action to ensure the comfort and success of the family’s flight. She did an excellent job, went through all the correct channels to ensure this success. However during the flight it can be noted that some actions were taken very automatically and without much present thought. Paul Denver was fast asleep when the stewardess woke him up with no apology to deliver champagne. She should have been more courteous and thoughtful asking his wife who was awake first for permission. She did however without hesitation make up for her mistake buy bringing games for their ill daughter Allie. Both parents were very grateful for that generosity. The entertainment on the flight was very accommodating all passengers including the twins in economy had full access to this amenity.

...Singapore Singapore is located in Southeastern Asia, islands between Malaysia and Indonesia. “There are wide income and wealth differences, but the country is more differentiated by ethnicity than by class. All the ethnic groups have experienced upward occupational mobility. There is an intense focus on education. Good marks are a sure path to good positions with good wages. In this respect, Singapore is a meritocracy” (Leone,2014). The crime rate in Singapore is very low, the reason being is because they still enforce the death penalty and they still impose caning as punishment. Singapore is a republic with a parliamentary system. The head of state is the president, who is elected for a fixed term of six years and the cabinet is the executive organ of the state, and execution of government policies is carried out by ministries and statutory boards. Older people ideally are treated with respect, but wealth and status may supersede age distinctions. A social superior or an authority is treated with much formality. There are great differences between formal and informal events, situations, and places. In social interaction, a certain physical distance is kept, especially between men and women. Food rules of the ethnic groups are always respected (Sierra, 2014) Singapore is located in Southeastern Asia and they speak many varieties of languages. Some of the languages they speak are English, Malay, Tamil, and Standard Mandarin. English is the most common language there and...

Singapore Culture

...Singapore Culture Vera Brickey Anthropogist 101 September 20.2011 Instructor:Michael King This report will therefore bring you through the changes that had taken place in Singapore’s labor market from the past to present. I will touch on a few crucial aspects leading to these changes, namely, globalization, technology advancement, and education. Last but not least, I will also comment on the strategies some employers had adopt on ensuring their continuing success. Singapore is a small island country in Southeast Asia. It lies at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula near the meeting of the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean. Singapore consists of a large island and more than 50 smaller islands. The large island, which is also called Singapore, covers about 250 square miles (650 square kilometers). The other islands have a combined area of about 20 square miles (50 square kilometers).

Obesity in Singapore

...exclusion, work, unemployment, social support, addiction, food and transport (Wilkinson R. & Marmot, M., 2003). This report is going to take a look at one of the major health concerns in Singapore which is obesity. We are going to explore the determinants of obesity in Singapore and also take a look at what the government has done thus far, to control this health issue. Obesity in Singapore Obesity defined by WHO is “a BMI greater than or equal to 30kg/m2” (WHO, 2013). BMI is body mass index and is used to classify overweight or obesity in adults. In recent years, there has been a rise in the obesity rate across the globe. In Asia especially, this increase in obesity rate is becoming a worrying trend. The prevalence rate of obesity in Singapore has also doubled from 1992 to 2004 reaching 16% in the high risk category (≥ 27.5kg/m2) and 36.7% in the moderate risk category (23kg/m2 ≥ body mass index (BMI) ≤ 27.4kg/m2; Epidemiology and Disease Control Division, 2004). Singapore is a multi-racial country that has an economy that is constantly growing over the years. With an increase in economic security, Singapore went through a change from being more exposed to infectious diseases linked to lack of food and poor hygiene, to high prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, which is more common in rich countries (Soon, Huang, Loke & Woon, 2008). The prevalence of obesity in Singapore is also seeing an upward trend over the......

...In the poem “Singapore” by Mary Oliver, there is a very important lesson of social acceptance. The poet speaks of encountering a woman in an airport bathroom stall, cleaning an ashtray in the toilet, and the disgust that she first feels towards this woman and her job. The speaker does however, express that she moves past the judgment that she first feels towards the woman in the stall. She imagines parts of nature and wishes to put the woman in a beautiful place in life. In this poem, the poet uses imagery, connotation, metaphor and symbolism to describe what she is really seeing compared to what she is imagining and would like to see. Significantly, the speaker begins the poem by saying, “A darkness was ripped from my eyes” (line 2). The darkness that she is speaking of is the judgment that she places upon this woman in the stall. She first has a closed mind, a disturbed perception if you will, towards the cleaning lady. To say that it “was ripped from my eyes” (line 2) implies that she did attain a better perception of her. The speaker knew that she should not be so judgmental towards this woman and the job she is performing. It is obvious that she understands she should not feel this way when in the second stanza she states, “Disgust argued in my stomach” (line 6). For that feeling to argue, it exhibits her capability to understand. Bewilderment and dismay overcame the speaker. She feels disgusted by what most people consider such a degrading job, yet so displeased with......

...Singapore, in the airport, A darkness was ripped from my eyes. In the women’s restroom, one compartment stood open. A woman knelt there, washing something in the white bowl. Disgust argued in my stomach and I felt, in my pocket, for my ticket. A poem should always have birds in it. Kingfishers, say, with their bold eyes and gaudy wings. Rivers are pleasant, and of course trees. A waterfall, or if that’s not possible, a fountain rising and falling. A person wants to stand in a happy place, in a poem. When the woman turned I could not answer her face. Her beauty and her embarrassment struggled together, and neither could win. She smiled and I smiled. What kind of nonsense is this? Everybody needs a job. Yes, a person wants to stand in a happy place, in a poem. But first we must watch her as she stares down at her labor, which is dull enough. She is washing the tops of the airport ashtrays, as big as hubcaps, with a blue rag. Her small hands turn the metal, scrubbing and rinsing. She does not work slowly, nor quickly, like a river. Her dark hair is like the wing of a bird. I don’t doubt for a moment that she loves her life. And I want her to rise up from the crust and the slop and fly down to the river. This probably won’t happen. But maybe it will. If the world were only pain and logic, who would want it? Of course, it isn’t. Neither do I mean anything miraculous, but only the light that can shine out of a life. I mean the way she......

...sophisticated system. The impetus SIA could stick on its promise was the subsidiaries it wholly owned and joint venture, which, in turn, provided operational support to not only SIA but also majorities of airlines operated in Singapore. SIA was extremely open to embrace new technologies. They attempted to bring their customers conveniences and a brand new experience from the ticket booking process to destination baggage handling. It was not merely some physical actions, but embedded their emotion and truly, sincerely treated people. SIA possessed the latest equipment. They seriously took care of the fleet, and updated the fleet frequently. Thus, SIA stocked a high quality of pool of talents. They carefully selected the fleet and designed interior structure to gain signal values, which was part of the differentiation strategy. A finely tuned recruitment and training strategy fostered a system meld the human assets into a formidable source of competitive strategy. SIA has exceptional people and enjoyed a steady stream of success. Deregulation and privatization in airline industry boosted the competition. SIA could spread its wing into more intercontinental routes with the help of alliances. But skies-open also meant more and more carriers would engage in Singapore; threaten to its market share. The lack of a common standard among airlines could significantly erode SIA’s brand value under so-called code-sharing system. On the other hand, the more urgent problem was......
