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.

Department of History, American University in Cairo, Cairo, Egypt This article examines the nature of religious terrorism, principally with reference to al-Qaeda. It argues that a distinction must be made between the ultimate aims and the immediate objectives of ‘religious’ terrorists, and that while the ultimate aims will be religiously formulated, the immediate objectives will often be found to be almost purely political. This distinction is illustrated with reference to such premodern religious terrorists as the Assassins and Zealots. Immediate objectives, are for many purposes more important than ultimate aims. Although the immediate objectives of al-Qaeda on 9=11 cannot be established with certainty, it is highly probably that the intention was to provoke a response from the US that would have a radicalizing impact on al-Qaeda’s constituency. Reference to public opinion in the Middle East, especially in Egypt, shows that this is indeed what has happened. Such an impact is a purely political objective, familiar to historians of terrorism from at least the time of Errico Malatesta and the ‘propaganda of the deed’ in the 1870s. While no direct link between Malatesta and al-Qaeda exists, al-Qaeda was certainly in contact with contemporary theories that Malatesta would have recognized, and seems to have applied them. Even though its immediate objectives are political rather than religious, al-Qaeda is a distinctively Islamic group. Not only is its chosen constituency a confessional one, but al-Qaeda also uses—and when necessary adapts—well-known Islamic religious concepts to motivate its operatives, ranging from conceptions of duty to conceptions of ascetic devotion. This is demonstrated with reference to the ‘Last Night’ document of 9=11. The conclusion is that terrorism which can be understood in political terms is susceptible to political remedies.

The PwC World Cup Index: what can the dismal science tell us about the beautiful game? Executive summary As the 2014 World Cup in Brazil draws closer, there is increasing interest in what makes a successful World Cup nation. This paper (which builds on an earlier one in 2010) contributes to this debate by using econometric analysis to test the correlation between several variables and World Cup performance. We aim to answer the following questions: Instead, we found a number of football-specific variables which explain World Cup performance better, such as the number of registered football players in each country and average football attendance levels. The other factors that we found to be important were a long-term footballing tradition and recent form as reflected in the FIFA world rankings. Which characteristics explain historic World Cup performance? Brazil are the favourites, England face a struggle in the Group of Death Which countries have underachieved and overachieved in past World Cups? Who are the strongest countries in the 2014 World Cup, and which group is the ‘Group of Death’? After identifying the extent to which different variables explain World Cup performance, we created a composite indicator which measures the relative strength of each competing country across a weighted average of these characteristics. This produces a ‘PwC World Cup Index’ that provides a novel way of assessing each country’s relative prospects in the 2014 World Cup.
The thesis is concerned with the study of ﬂuid-structure interaction in ﬂexible tubes both from the modelling as well as the experimental point of view. More speciﬁcally, it presents the ﬁrst stage of development and testing of a novel uniﬁed solution method suitable for ﬂuid-structure interaction problems. In the conventional approach for modelling such problems, the ﬂuid and solid components are treated separately, information is exchanged at their interface and diﬀerent solution algorithms are used for the two components. The equations for solids are solved for displacement and stress and, the ones for ﬂuids are solved for velocity and pressure. The exchange of information between two solution methods that solve for diﬀerent quantities is not a trivial task and has also known drawbacks such as high computational cost and potential numerical instabilities, especially for very ﬂexible structures. In the new method presented in the thesis, a single set of equations is used to describe both ﬂuid and solid, while the interface between them is contained within the solution domain itself. This is achieved by reformulating the solid equations to contain the same primitive variables used in ﬂuids i.e. velocity and pressure. The PISO algorithm is used to handle the velocity-pressure coupling. The method proposed is fully tested for solids on a structural dynamic problem (beam bending) and the results compared successfully with the classical structural analysis. In order to quantify the dissipation characteristics of the numerical integration technique, a stability eigenvalue analysis of the proposed time marching and spatial discretisation scheme is performed in one dimension but the conclusions of this analysis were also in agreement with the results of the beam bending.
