Ksenia Polyakova Packaging design as a Marketing tool and Desire to purchase, 72 pages, 2 appendices Saimaa University of Applied Science Faculty of Business Administration, Lappeenranta Degree Programme in International Business Bachelor’s Thesis 2013 Instructor: Mr. Riku Hytönen Senior Lecturer, Saimaa University of Applied Sciences The purpose of the study was to examine the consumer perception on different design elements of a milk package and to provide essential information for the companies about the consumer attraction and importance of design attributes from the consumer point of view. The theoretical framework was based on the secondary data (articles and books) and included core concepts of packaging, packaging design, consumer behavior, consumer perception, and consumer attraction. The mixed method was selected for acquiring and analyzing the research results. Quantitative data was collected from 30 questionnaire responses and was analyzed with the computer program Excel. Qualitative data was obtained from two interviews conducted with the companies, Valio Ltd and Tetra Pak Ltd. The results of the study revealed the importance of packaging design in consumer buying behavior. By examining the consumer perception, it was found out that packaging design elements such as graphics, color, and product information play a key role in decision making and ensure consumer’s attention. Based on the findings, it was defined that successful milk packaging design could be created by the cooperation between the consumer and the company. Further research could investigate other product packages’ design elements.
PostgreSQL as a Schemaless Database. Christophe Pettus PostgreSQL Experts, Inc. OSCON 2013 Welcome! • I’m Christophe. • PostgreSQL person since 1997. • Consultant with PostgreSQL Experts, Inc. • email@example.com • thebuild.com • @xof on Twitter. What’s on the menu? • What is a schemaless database? • How can you use PostgreSQL to store schemaless data? • How does do the various schemaless options perform? A note on NoSQL. • Worst. Term. Ever. • It’s true that all modern schemaless databases do not use SQL, but… • Neither did Postgres before it became PostgreSQL. (Remember QUEL?) • The deﬁning characteristic is the lack of a ﬁxed schema. Schematic. • A schema is a ﬁxed (although mutable over time) deﬁnition of the data. • Database to schema (unfortunate term) to table to ﬁeld/column/attribute. • Individual ﬁelds can be optional (NULL). • Adding new columns requires a schema change.

Why do the Islamic fundamentalists in general—and followers of al Qaeda in particular—resort to terrorist tactics against Americans and other Westerners around the globe? This question has haunted Americans since 9/11 and prompted a host of antiterrorist policies throughout the world. Much has been written and spoken on the subject, and more will be written and spoken in the years ahead. Political geography offers a frame of reference to learn about al Qaeda and other militant Islamic groups and their anti-West, anti–U.S. posture. To explore the point of view propounded by Osama bin Laden and others, this case study uses the ﬁve levels of analysis introduced in chapter three, examined here from a geopolitical perspective. The ﬁve levels of analysis are the: 1) international system, 2) regional, 3) state, 4) substate (tribal groups), and 5) individual. INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM LEVEL From the international system perspective, consider the following historical context of al Qaeda’s militant Islam. Militant Islamic fundamentalists and followers of Islam are heirs to one of the great civilizations of the world. While...
As the ranks of vegetarians in the United States and around the world grow in number, many are applying the same ethical considerations and health benefits to their companion dogs who are omnivores just as we are. The ethical advantages are no different than for human vegetarians — a break with the slaughterhouse and with cruelty to animals raised for food. The health benefits would appear to be equally compelling, since the meat found in dog food generally consists of that deemed unfit for human consumption. Yet a cloud of controversy hangs over the issue of whether a dog can live healthfully on a vegetarian (meatless) or vegan (animal product-free) diet. Though discussed at length in the popular media, no one seems able to offer more than anecdotal evidence to support one view or the other. In an effort to settle the question and quell the nagging doubts of those who choose to provide their companion dogs with a vegetarian diet, a survey was initiated to gather and analyze data on the diet and health status of a large number of vegetarian dogs. Participants were solicited through PETA's newsletter, and data on 300 dogs over a period of one year were received. The survey included questions on the dogs' diets and health history, as well as general information, such as age, breed, and sex.
