Jay Winfield
Resort Manager
Mr. McGibblets Water Park Resort
211 East Adams Street
P.O. Box 777
Las Vega, NV53965

Dear Mr. Winfield:

As agreed, Mr. McGibblets should pay my medical expenses for an injury that I suffered at your resort on July 5, 2010. Additionally, my family and I would like to receive two nights of free accommodations in one of your 3 bedroom suites at the Wild Spring Lodge on July 9-10 of 2011.

On July 5, 2010 I was injured going down a waterslide in your Water Park. I was enjoying my ride until the mat that was provided for this slide broke and I was severely injured. I immediately rushed to the St. John Urgent Care Facility where I was examined and then, because of the extent of my injuries, told that I needed to be seen in the Emergency room at St. Thomas Hospital. After you and I spoke on the phone I contacted the billing department at St. Thomas Hospital to inform them that the resort is going to be paying my medical expenses. The hospital then informed me that as a “self pay” patient (as opposed to being covered with medical insurance) I receive a 20% discount and that if the resort is going to pay my medical expenses directly then the resort will be liable for 100% of the charges.

Enclosed is a copy of two invoices from the hospital visit. Please make a check out to Fred Smith in the amount of $634.30 and send it to the above address in order to avoid paying the additional 20% that the hospital will charge you to pay them directly. If you would rather pay the hospital directly along with the additional 20% please notify me immediately that you will be doing so.
Note: one invoice covers the facilities charges while the other invoice covers the physician’s charges.

My wife, Betty, and I have been loyal customers and have vacationed at Mr.…...

Direct Marketing

...Definition: Direct Marketing delivers promotional messages directly to potential customers on an individual basis, such as postal mail, telemarketing and direct e-mailing, in contrast to mass media such as television, radio or the Internet. It is a form of advertisement in which physical marketing materials are provided to customers in order to communicate information about a product or service.1 This form of marketing seeks to create an action (visit the store, demand further information, enter companies website) from the target group in response to a message from the marketer. Furthermore it shows measurable responses from consumers, regardless of the medium. Benefits: The major components in Direct Marketing are the evaluation and measurement of responses. The usage is very popular with marketers, because its results can directly be measured. Meaning that, if a company addresses 500 letters to their customers and 50 of them respond to the promotion, one can conclude that the mailing campaign led to a 10 percent directl response (measurement of efficiency). Furthermore the tool allows a company to create a qualified and potential database and feedback system for its own future use. Delivering promotional messages directly to the potential customer can easily raise awareness of the business/ product. A personal interaction (face-to-face) is not necessarily required so customers do not have to interact with salespeople. Most importantly Direct Marketing helps to......

Direct and Indirect

...DIRECT AND INDIRECT APPROACHES In writing letters, memos, and e-mail messages (the focus of Chapters 2 and 3), one issue that you'll need to consider is whether your message is one that is likely to be well-received or one that may encounter resistance or ill-will--a "bad news" message of some type. Searle’s spends a good bit of time in Chapter 1 discussing tone and making sure to use a reader-centered perspective that utilizes a "you" approach and positive wording. In addition to a reader-centered perspective, however, you also should consider the difference between what is called a direct and an indirect approach when organizing letters, memos, and e-mail messages, especially ones that convey bad news. DIRECT APPROACH The direct approach anticipates no resistance to its message--for instance, "you've been hired," "your order is being shipped today," or even "the project will be done in one week." In this case, organizing your message is simple. Searle’s mentions that memos and letters should have some kind of brief introduction, sometimes as its own paragraph. If you're using the direct approach, this introduction is simply a straightforward statement of the main point of the message. For instance, if you are writing a letter to confirm an order, simply begin by stating, "We have received your order for part #23-B-4439 and are shipping it today." Then the rest of the letter can provide details like shipping time, cost, etc. Whenever possible, use the direct......

...1650 Ford Court Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 48236 April 9, 2014 Mr. Michael Seppala President of Harper Sport Shop 23208 Greater Mack Ave St Clair Shores, MI 48080 Dear Michael Seppala, Last Friday, I came into Harper Sport Shop to purchase a pair of skates and a new hockey stick. A young man named Charles was helping me. He recommended a few pairs of skates and I decided on the Graf Supra 735 skates. I purchased them and wore them in my Sunday men’s league. By the end of the game, my right foot and ankle were very sore. Upon inspecting the skates, I had determined that the chassis on the right skate was slightly crooked. It was so slight that neither Charles nor I had noticed it in the store, but after skating for an hour and a half on them it was very apparent there was an issue. The Graf Supra 735 boots themselves are very comfortable and I would like to stick with them. The issue with the crooked chassis needs to be addressed. I am requesting that you replace the malfunctioning chassis with a new one and profile the new steel blade at an eight radius, with a forward lean, and sharpened at three eighths of an inch. If you do not have the correct chassis in the store and need to order it from Graf, that will not be a problem. I will be able to wear my old skates to play in my league until this issue is resolved. As a customer of Harper Sport Shop, a place I enjoy shopping, I feel compelled to tell you that I discovered a problem with your......

Va Claims

...Administration Disability Claims Introduction The United States Armed Forces serve the nation selflessly; therefore, they deserve the compensation guaranteed to them by the federal government, especially after engagement in combat. American troops are will begin departing from Afghanistan this year after 11 years at war; however, it seems that the government is not committed in compensating former armed service personnel. This is due to the increasing number of veterans’ claims accumulating in the Veterans Affairs offices. Combat has severe impact on veterans and this impact may not only be physical, but mental as well. Many veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder after witnessing the events of war. As a result, many cannot hold jobs to their families. Regardless of their service, there are more than 400,000 veterans who have not yet received resolution of their disability claims. A claim is considered a backlog case if it takes more than 125 days to be processed. Some veterans have been forced to wait over two years and hence suffered severe financial strains. Problem Statement Due to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a vast number of disabled veterans have flooded the Veterans Health Administration system. Although it is the largest health care system in America, it has failed to effectively care for its veterans. There are currently over 400,000 unprocessed medical claims and......

Birmingham Letter

...Letter From Birmingham In April of 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr., was jailed in Birmingham, Alabama for his efforts in the civil rights movement. One day after King's arrest, a full-page advertisement taken out by a group of local, white, moderate, clergymen appeared in The Birmingham News. They attacked the demonstrations as "unwise and untimely" and concluded, "We do not believe that these days of new hope are days when extreme measures are justified in Birmingham. From his prison cell, King replied not only to the ministers' letter but also to an educated, white, middle-class audience, by writing his response in the margins of the newspaper and on toilet paper . "I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was well timed in the view of those who have not suffered from the disease of segregation," King, wrote in what was later published as the essay, Letter from Birmingham Jail. The 6500 word letter went on to explain and make clear to the clergy and to the world why the struggle against racism must not be deferred. King's main claim in this letter is that no matter what the circumstances are it is far beyond time for the black community to stand up and fight for what is rightfully theirs, the same rights and freedoms accorded to the white community. King effectively accomplishes this task through the structure of the essay and in his use of pathos, ethos, and logos to defend his arguments. King's structure of the essay is purposeful in its attempt to......

...Claims PRO team 1 Abortions The social media are talking more about abortions. They believe that it’s a decision that should not be argued why women would want an abortion. With the evolving moral standards of society, abortions are becoming more and more justified. Abortions, the practice of removing a fertilized egg from a mother has become a controversial issue in American society, but should be generally supported because you don’t know exactly why women want an abortion or what happened to where she cannot conceive this baby. Abortion advocates must think the American people are fools. They claim the issue is not the morality of abortion, but "who decides--the woman or the state? “Most Americans favor stiff penalties for rapists. Clearly, laws against rape don't let the government decide who gets raped. Instead, these laws indicate that the government has decided rape is an unacceptable practice. Rapists disagree, but the rest of us decided to impose our morality on them. That is what laws are all about. I do not agree that getting an abortion is wrong. Those who refute abortion claim that it is the murder of a helpless baby who has not yet had the chance to live and function as a human being. However, the debate opposite it is just as fervent: it is a woman’s right to choose what happens to her body, and if she decides that she is not capable of bringing a child into this world, than she shouldn’t be forced to out of nature. Where do we draw the line between humane...

Dell Direct and Not-so-Direct

...MARKETING 5000 Dell Direct and Not-So-Direct Case Summary When Dell started selling its computers in 1984 the company decided to sell its products directly to consumers through catalogs and phone orders cutting out the traditional middle men (wholesalers and retailers) the company handles all the interaction with customers. The company was very successful in using that business model and in 1997 they were generating around $1 million a day in sales just from its online store only. With this success the company extended its business outside the United States. Also, increased its targets market to consumers, small businesses, large businesses, and government agencies. Dell competitors such as Apple and Hewlett parked targeted the same markets but were selling their products through retailers and opening their own retail stores. Dell also tried selling through those mediums but the practice did not last long due to lower profit margin. Due to competition, in 2007 the Dell forged alliance with retailers around the world and started selling its products in stores so they can gain some of the market share. The practice was a success and now the company sells its products through more than 50000 retailers worldwide. Dell made it easy for its customers who visit the online store to locate a desired product at a store near them so they can pick it up in store. Another change the company made was they forge alliance VAR partners to provide them products for their customers.......

Claim Adjudication

...1. How do employer priorities affect claim adjudication and management in workers’ compensation systems? The number one priority for all companies is to be successful and that means being profitable. As the global market becomes more competitive, many businesses must cut costs and adopt strategies to ensure that their doors remain open. When an employee injures themselves on the job the potential costs of an injury claim can significantly impact the WCB premiums for a company (Barnetson, 2010). Workers’ Compensation Boards use its experience rating system to adjust an employer’s premiums based on its injury prevention performance compared to the industry average. Performance compared to that average determines if employers are awarded a rebate or presented with a surcharge (Barnetson, 2010). The system is designed to provide an incentive to employers in hopes they will improve safety performance and prevent injuries, but it also can create pressure to minimize claim costs (Barnetson, 2010). Instead of making safety improvements to the operation, employers may attempt to game the system through the adoption of aggressive claim management and adjudication strategies (Barnetson, 2010). These strategies are designed to do three things; get workers back to work as soon as possible; dispute and appeal claims where feasible; and lower premium rates without having to make significant changes to work processes. More and more employers are recognizing that an early return to......

An entity can be a joint venture, regardless of the rights and obligations the parties sharing joint control have with respect to the entity’s underlying assets and liabilities. The investors generally account for their interests in joint ventures using the equity method of accounting. They also can elect to account for their interests at fair value. Proportionate consolidation may be permitted to account for interests in unincorporated entities in certain limited industries when it is an established practice (i.e., in the construction and extractive industries). In a joint venture, the parties sharing joint control can only have rights to the net assets of the entity. They cannot have direct rights and obligations with respect to the underlying assets and liabilities of the entity. The investors generally account for their interests in joint ventures using the equity method of accounting. They cannot elect to account for their interests at fair value, unless the investors are venture capital organizations, mutual funds, unit trusts or similar entities. Proportionate consolidation is not permitted, regardless of industry. However, when a jointly controlled entity meets the definition of a joint operation instead of a joint venture under IFRS, an investor would recognize its share of the entity’s assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and not apply the equity method.

Direct Marketing

...Direct Marketing According to the official definition of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), direct marketing is an "interactive system of marketing which uses one or more advertising media to effect a measurable response and/or transaction at any location." While there are many other possible definitions, the DMA captures the four basic concepts that set direct marketing apart from traditional marketing. The notion of interactivity, or one-to-one communication between the marketer and the prospect or customer, is one factor that distinguishes direct marketing keting from general advertising and other types of marketing. Direct marketing makes an offer and asks for a response. By developing a history of offers and responses, direct marketers acquire knowledge of their prospects and customers, resulting in more effective targeting. Measurability also sets direct marketing apart from general advertising and other forms of marketing. Direct marketers can measure the response to any offer. Measurability allows direct marketers to test a variety of lists, offers, media—virtually any aspect of a campaign—in order to allocate marketing resources to the most effective combination of elements. Direct marketing uses a variety of media, including mail, magazine ads, newspaper ads, television and radio spots, infomercials (also television but longer format), free standing inserts (FSIs), and card decks. This flexibility allows direct marketing to provide interactivity and......
