Intro Non-Swearing ExperimentFor this experiment I am going to be giving up swearing for three days. This means that I am not allowed to use any bad words, for an example I am not allowed to say the F bomb but I am allowed to say firkin.For one whole day I recorded how many times I swore. I learned that I swear the most when I'm with my friends and when I am frustrated. At home I will swear maybe once or twice. When I'm with my friends it really does not change my mood. Swearing doesn't make me happy or sad, I just stay the same. When I am frustrated swearing makes me feel calmer. At home it kind of slips out and I feel bad because I am around my family and we don't swear when we are around each other. During the day I think a lot about swearing but I do find that I stop myself a lot from swearing because I know it is a bad thing to do.Swearing's for Art StudentsAfter three days of not swearing.A) During the first day I wanted to swear many times. My swear count was getting close to thirty (30). By the last day I was down a significant amount, I only wanted to swear about 3-5 times a day.B) Every time I stopped myself from swearing I felt good because I knew I had self control, this makes me more confident because I know that I can apply myself to other subject other than swearing.C) My mood during this experiment has changed many times. I went into this experiment being confident, I thought that I would have control over what I wanted to say and that stopping swearing cold turkey wouldn't be a problem for me.

Blue Ocean Strategy - Research Paper Example To break out of red oceans, the blue ocean strategy postulates that companies must break out of the accepted boundaries that define how they compete. These systematic boundaries are identified by the six paths framework as: industry, strategic groups, buyer groups, scope of product or service offerings, functional-emotional orientation of an industry, and time (Ã¢â¬Å"Blue Ocean Strategy,Ã¢â¬ 2011). The first path that we see Wii utilized to create a blue ocean was the buyer groups. MicrosoftÃ¢â¬â¢s Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 rely on users as their primary focus. For this reason their strategies are geared towards increasing their users-experience through constant innovation and deployment of new technologies such as HD, graphics and so on. On the contrary, Wii opted to target purchasers and influencers e.g. parents and physicians through development of products that everyone in the family can appreciate. This has increased the likelihood of say, parents, purchasing Wii games instead of PS3 or Xbox 360 for their children. The second path that the Wii utilized to create a blue ocean for itself is the product scope. While the two major gaming competitors stuck to the belief that gaming was a preserve for a certain age group, the Wii expanded its market by developing products that could cut across all age groups from pre-teens to senior citizens. The Wii Healthy category of games comprises of products that grandparents and grandchildren could easily play with together.
