Government support for business will be key to maintaining market stability.

The Mobile Phone Industry in the Uk

...The Mobile Phone Industry The market for mobile phones is enormous, with media regulator Ofcom reporting in Q1 of 2012 that 92% of the adult population in the UK own at least one mobile phone – this figure could have risen further as we are now in Q1 of 2013. What's more, four out of five children are expected to own a mobile phone by the age of 11 years old. With many people calling this the digital age, it is difficult for people now not to own a mobile phone. The mobile phone industry also poses a massive threat to other industries. An example of this is that most mobile phones now come complete with an inbuilt camera. Is the massive mobile phone industry the main reason behind the well-publicized collapse of camera firm Jessops earlier this year? (Fig A) See in figure A that demand for mobile phones shifts from D1 to D2, thus more are supplied. The mobile phone industry consists of two main sectors: manufacturers and network operators. Manufacturers: The demand for mobile phones is ever growing; in 2011 there were approximately 81.6 million active mobile phone contracts in the UK. Because of this, we see the ‘mobile phone’ evolve each and every year. It’s not surprising that we are still seeing massive changes today. From 1998 until 2012, Nokia was the biggest mobile phone manufacturer worldwide. Today, a ‘Nokia Brick’ is not accepted by society and as a result Nokia has suffered declining market share due to the likes of Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy line...

Uk Regulation Within the Newspaper Industry

...1.0 Introduction There is never a definite answer to the question of whether the current system and method of self-regulation in the UK press allows news outlets to intrude on people’s private and personal lives. This paper will help us look at the present system of press regulation in the United Kingdom. In current UK law there is no legislation that forbids publications from printing articles that can be considered as intrusive and invasion of an individual’s privacy. This however does not mean that there is no regulation governing publications. There is a strict code of practice that all the media outlets both print and broadcast have come to an agreement to adhere to. This code was set up by the Press Compliant Commission in order to regulate the industry. This commission is an independent entity that was set up in the early 1990s following the recommendations of a commission on press regulation that was chaired by Sir. David Calcutt. The commission’s core responsibility is to ensure that the press adheres to the agreed code of practice on sensitive topics such minors and privacy (Fourie 2002: 46). In case of any breach of the code of conduct, the commission will conduct an investigation and either uphold the complaint or dismiss it in its entirety. With the exception of incidents regarding inaccuracies (these are dealt with by the editor responsible) all other cases have to be adjudicated and published by the commission. This commission came to being ultimately......

Analysing the Impact of the Introduction of Hybrid Cars on the Automobile Industry in the Uk

... ANALYSING THE IMPACT OF THE INTRODUCTION OF HYBRID CARS ON THE AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY IN THE UK Abstract Hybrid cars are an emerging aspect in contemporary automobile technology. Hybrid cars have existed for over one hundred years. However the benefits from such cars have not been acknowledged for all this time until in recent years. Generally speaking a hybrid car is one which uses two power engines to pull the vehicle. The introduction of hybrid cars has been hailed greatly, mostly by international organisations, governments, nongovernmental organisations (NGOs,) and individuals. Many car manufacturers are continuously getting involved with the production of hybrid cars with Toyota being the highest producer of the cars and having the highest sales [1]. These cars are most used in Europe. Hybrid cars were introduced to combat the effects of the gasoline cars vis-a-vis environmental concerns, but also for political reasons. Research shows that the carbon emission from petrol and diesel cars has a depleting effect o n the ozone layer (a gas blanket surrounding the earth’s atmosphere which prevents ultraviolet rays from the sun from getting directly to earth, causing disfavour able climatic changes). Also most oil rich countries have become so powerful that other countries depend on them and so hybrid cars come as a relief to countries that either do not have oil or have other sources of energy. The UK is one of the countries in which the use of hybrid cars is heavily......

Is the Contemporary Uk Fashion Industry Sustainable?

...Is the Contemporary UK Fashion Industry Sustainable? The sustainability of the fashion industry is one of the major concerns facing many stakeholders in the sector. The UK fashion industry is increasingly facing a wide range of sustainability issues ranging from wastes generation due to increased production of fashion products to the use of toxic materials in the production of fashion items. In addition, the industry has also been faced with the problem of the growing problem of widespread use of unsustainable materials such as non-biodegradable materials that are not usually easy to recycle as well as the current energy consumption to the release of millions of tons of greenhouse gasses released during the manufacture of fashion and textile products. It is widely believed that many of these sustainability challenges and issues are largely attributed to the recent increased flow of a diverse range of fashion products particularly clothing and textiles in the UK market. For example, recent statistics indicate that that up to 3.2 million tonnes of fashion related products like clothing and textiles currently flow through the country each year . Generally, the environmental impacts of the fashion sector mainly include its high contribution to the climate change in the form of the increasing requirement of fossil fuels required in the generation of energy used in the industry such as in the production and manufacture sectors.

Educational Achievement Is the Social Class Background of the Pupil

...facing industrialized societies is finding and training people to take over the most intellectually demanding jobs from the previous generation. To progress, society needs a literate, highly trained work force. Society’s job is to motivate its citizens to excel in the workplace, and the best way to do that is to foment discontent with the status quo. Cloward and Ohlin argued that if people were dissatisfied with what they had, what they earned, or where they lived, they would be motivated to work harder to improve their circumstances. In order to compete in the world marketplace, a society must offer institutionalized means of succeeding. For example, societies that value higher education as a way to advance in the workplace must make educational opportunity available to everyone. Illegitimate Opportunity Structures Cloward and Ohlin further elaborated on Merton’s strain theory. Deviant behavior—crime in particular—was not just a response to limited institutionalized means of success. Rather, crime also resulted from increased access to illegitimate opportunity structures, or various illegal means to achieve success. These structures, such as crime, are often more available to poor people living in urban slums. In the inner city, a poor person can become involved in prostitution, robbery, drug dealing, or loan sharking to make money. While these activities are clearly illegal, they often provide opportunities to make large amounts of money, as well as gain status among......
