The Earth’s waters move back and forth every-day, causing currents and tides. Tides are the daily or twice daily rise and fall of the oceans. Tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun on the ocean. The rise and fall of tides causes water to move in and out of estuaries, bays and harbors. This movement is called a tidal current. When the tide is rising, water flows from the ocean into the bay creating a flood current. When the tide falls, water flows from the bay back into the ocean creating an ebb current.
The highest tides, called spring tides, are formed when the earth, sun and moon are lined up in a row. This happens every two weeks during a new moon or

A Conversation with W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne
authors of BLUE OCEAN STRATEGY
1) What is a blue ocean strategy?
Kim & Mauborgne: Blue Ocean Strategy is a way to make the competition irrelevant by creating a leap in value for both the company and its customers.
2) What are red and blue oceans, and why do you use the colors red and blue?
Kim & Mauborgne: We use the terms red and blue oceans to describe the market universe. Red oceans are all the industries in existence today—the known market space. In the red oceans, industry boundaries are defined and accepted, and the competitive rules of the game are known. Here companies try to outperform their

Principles of Marketing

For a long time many businesses have use a military strategy in order to find profit in an existing market. Fighting for a competitive advantage and battling competitors over a piece of the profit. Taking this head-on approach only leads to an overcrowded market with a shrinking profit pool. This is what the book calls a “red ocean”. Blue Ocean on the other hand wants you to look outside the box and make the competition irrelevant. In the future companies will not succeed battling competitors, but instead finding uncontested market space ripe for growth. Swimming in an area that only has a few

Blue Ocean Strategy
The Harvard Business Review “Blue Ocean Strategy” by W. Chan Kim and Renee describes the “business universe” and its two “distinct kinds of space,” the red ocean and the blue ocean. The article explains how the market space if divided by these two oceans. The red ocean symbolizes the industries that are currently in present in the market. These industries serve as models for current competitors as well as future ones. On the other side, blue oceans are industries that are “not in existence today.” These industries are unknown and could be developed from red oceans or from completely new industries.

The ocean covers roughly two thirds of the Earth’s surface area, and as such is the most valuable resource that we have. Every year through mal-treatment and abuse we irreparably damage our ocean and the ecology found within it. Instead of focusing on what we can gain through strip mining the ocean of its treasures, work needs to be done to establish a safeguard for its preservation. Late President and naturalist Theodore Roosevelt stated “To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the [ocean] instead of using it so as to increase it’s usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very property which we ought by to hand down to them amplified

According to the movie, the warmer temperatures caused the polar ice caps to melt, and the increased amount of water in the ocean disrupted the North Atlantic Current. The North Atlantic Current is what is responsible for the warm temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere. With the current disrupted the Northern Hemisphere went into an ice age.

So knowing how to clean up after an oil spill is important because if we didn’t then the animals in the sea would die, when they die there won’t be any sea food and the sea food that was there would be filled with oil, dirt, and slime.

As a tsunami approaches the shore, the water depth decreases, the front of the wave slows down, and the wave grows dramatically in height and surges unexpectedly onto the land.

After careful cash flow analysis and a discount rate (WACC) of 9%, commissioning a capsize carrier for 25 years is the only appropriate option for our firm.

I make this recommendation after thorough analysis of estimated cash flow and with the desire that our required 15-year life span will be amended.

As things change within the network something are slower than others it learns from it and makes changes for better performance. With this method the packets will more than likely arrive out of order. Depending if you use TCP or UDP, you will get an acknowledgement of the receipt of each packet to the sending system. The sending system will resend any lost information.

A cold seep (sometimes called a cold vent) is an area of the ocean floor where hydrogen sulfide, methane and other hydrocarbon-rich fluid seepage occurs. Cold seeps are distinct from hydrothermal vents: the former's emissions are of the same temperature as the surrounding seawater, whereas the latter's emissions are super-heated. Cold seeps constitute a biome supporting several endemic species. Cold seeps occur over fissures on the seafloor caused by tectonic activity. Oil and methane "seep" out of those fissures, are diffused by sediment, and emerge over an area several hundred meters wide.
