A distinction is sometimes made between fashion items, such as clothing, and pure fads, such as the notorious pet rocks. It is not always immediately obvious into which of these two categories a product falls. When they were first introduced in the early 1980s, in-line skates seemed as if they might be a brief fad. But 25 years later they were still selling strongly, firmly set in the mature stage of their life cycle. They may not be destined for the life cycle of the corn flake, but they have already outlived many seemingly more permanent products. (Source: economist.com)
Let’s look into PLC model for Botox – the star product for Allergan:
The product lifecycle of Botox is in the Bowling Alley phase. The market momentum has picked up as more consumers for the reasons mentioned above (aging population, increasing income, etc.) have become more open to adopt the new technology to address the issues they face. One of the reasons this product is in the alley is because it has two major benefits that can have enormous applications. Botox’s sales are roughly divided equally for Therapeutic (54%) and Aesthetic (46%) so the potential is huge. This is not a product that has matured or in the decline by any…
Tiger. Before they chose to make the face of Frosties a tiger, there was a competition between the tiger, a kangaroo, an elephant, and a gnu. Tony the Tiger was the most popular to public, and that’s why Frosties decided to put the tiger on it’s box of cereal. When this began, the tiger wasn’t as muscular as the one today. The purpose of this was to show children that if they were to eat the frosted flakes, then they would grow lean and strong like the tiger (History of Tony).
Unlike yesterday 's date, I wanted to do something fun that he would remember forever. He helped me get ready by decorating my costume, I was a scarecrow he was a hunter. Earlier in the week I saw flyers about haunted houses and corn mazes throughout Greenville and I knew he would love that. That was our big scary date; however he had no clue what was in store for him. We drove into the night, he asked me a thousand of questions about where we were going. When we finally reached our destination…
“Come on! come on! come on, Emma!” shouted Skylar. Skylar rushed Emma to sign up for the corn maze. Clickety clack, clickety clack. They heard the high schoolers high heels. As they slowly lifted their heads up, it was the bully in the whole school Julie Hoffman.
She pranked three freshmen every year, and all cried most of the time. “Hey little babies!” shouted Julie. “Are you going to enter the maze contest?”
Yes, mumbled Skylar and Emma at the same time.
Fine, Julie said but just so…
Candy Waterfall: Can Solids Flow Like Liquids?
Does the shape and size of candy affect how it flows? What do candy, sand, and cereal have in common? They are both granular materials. Engineers need to know exactly how fast materials flow down a funnel so they can get the right amount in each box. Imagine if you had a box of candy and you opened it and it is only halfway full, wouldn’t you be mad? That is why factories and engineers need to work together to find out how fast…
The obesity rates in America has increased over the past 20 years and studies have found that drinking large amounts of sugar-sweetened beverages affects, children especially, the risk of obesity. HFCS is a “high-fructose” corn syrup and sucrose is table sugar which came from sugar beets, they also contain nearly equal proportion of smaller glucose and fructose sugars. Both HFCS and sucrose differs in the amount of fructose that is contained in each, but are almost equally in being chemically…
Determine the ratio of sugar to corn syrup that produces the best-tasting and best-textured marshmallow.
That marshmallows will taste better when made with more corn syrup than more of granulated sugar. I think this because the
Square or round foil cake pans, 8 or 9 inches wide (9)
Pen or permanent marker
Vegetable oil, like canola or safflower oil, for greasing pans
Paper towels (1 roll)
Powdered or confectioners sugar (3 cups)
diapers all have in common? They all are products made with corn. Corn and the production of it were the main focus of a class by Professor Joe Braunworth at Grossmont College this week. This product that has infiltrated our shelves had created an illusion of diversity among products. Corn slowly but surely has taken over the agricultural arena.
“What factors did you consider when deciding what to eat for lunch?” Professor Braunworth posed at the start of his discussion. Different answers were…
King Corn is an eye-opening documentary that highlights the huge role that corn plays in American society. The film was produced in 2007 by college friends Aaron Woolf, Ian Cheney, and Curtis Ellis, who together moved from their familiar urban city to an Iowa farm. The film follows Cheney and Ellis as they rent a one-acre plot of farmland and plant their own crop of field corn. The documentary serves to demonstrate the American food industry’s reliance on corn and how corn has come to be in…
“How Corn Conquered America”
I. The main idea of the “introduction” is: corn is the cornerstone of many American’s diet, managing to become the most widely planted crop in America.
One fact or example that supports the main idea is about 40 percent of Mexicans calories come directly from corn, mostly in the form of tortillas. Yet Americans have more corn in their diet diet than Mexicans.
Another fact or example that supports the main point is that there are some 45,000 items in the average…
