Choose one of the images.

Choose ONE of the images. Prepare a discussion where you explain, based on your readings, the answers to each of the following questions:
Who is the audience, the target market, for the image?
What ethical or moral values does the poster use to communicate its message? Are there relevant values that are not considered in the message?
What is the poster’s purpose? What is the message that this poster communicates?
Why is it important for this message to be delivered to this audience at this moment in time?
How does the document communicate its message? Think about its use of language, color, space, and symbols.
This pair of US Military recruiting posters demonstrates the way that two branches of the military—the Marines and the Women’s Army Corps—borrowed techniques from advertising professionals to “sell” a romantic vision of war to Americans. These two images take different strategies: one shows Marines at war in a lush jungle, reminding viewers that the war was taking place in exotic lands, the other depicted women taking on new jobs as a patriotic duty.

In North Africa in 1942, British victory at El Alamein began pushing the Germans back. In November, the first American combat troops entered the European war, landing in French Morocco and pushing the Germans east while the British pushed west.7 By 1943, the Allies had pushed Axis forces out of Africa. In January, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill met at Casablanca to discuss the next step of the European war. Churchill convinced Roosevelt to chase the Axis up Italy, into the “soft underbelly” of Europe. Afterward, Roosevelt announced to the press that the Allies would accept nothing less than unconditional surrender.
Meanwhile, the Army Air Force (AAF) sent hundreds (and eventually thousands) of bombers to England in preparation for a massive strategic bombing campaign against Germany. The plan was to bomb Germany around the clock. American bombers hit German ball-bearing factories, rail yards, oil fields, and manufacturing centers during the day, while the British RAF carpet-bombed German cities at night. Flying in formation, they initially flew unescorted, since many believed that bombers equipped with defensive firepower flew too high and too fast to be attacked. However, advanced German technology allowed fighters to easily shoot down the lumbering bombers. On some disastrous missions, the Germans shot down almost 50 percent of American aircraft. However, the advent and implementation of a long-range escort fighter let the bombers hit their targets more accurately while fighters confronted opposing German aircraft.

Are protest songs patriotic?

1. Find and listen carefully to 2 protest songs relating to the Civil Rights Movement and 2 protest songs relating to the Vietnam War. Cite all 4 as using the format: Band, “Song Title,” Album (Year).
Make a post of 200-400 words responding to the following questions:
What does patriotism mean to you?
You may use a dictionary, but I also encourage you to express this in your own words.
Are protest songs patriotic? Why or why not?
Given that songs often only represent one side of the issue, and given that history is full of nuance (i.e., generalizations can be both helpful and problematic)…
How do you think these songs may have been received by the general population and by soldiers fighting the war?
Use specific evidence from the songs above to support your points.

Identify and discuss one key trend for each letter of the pestel for the industry.

Step 4 Company Overview :
Provide a company overview of TESLA. The company overview includes the purpose(s) for the founding of the company (i.e., what problem(s) was it formed to solve and/or opportunities it was formed to exploit, who are the founders, home country or state, current management, employee headcount, last year’s revenue, etc.).
Step 5 Evaluate the General Environment
Identify the global industry in which the company operates. Discuss Tesla’s general environment by developing a PESTEL analysis.
First, use the course material to identify the elements of the PESTEL and what components make up each element. Then, complete the analysis using research on the industry and the focal company. Be sure to present and support the reasoning for what is presented thoroughly. You may not use a PESTEL analysis that is already completed and available on the Internet. A zero will result if used as the analysis has to result from your research and your own development.
NOTE: A PESTEL analysis is not a table, and it is not a bulleted assessment.
Identify and discuss one key trend for each letter of the PESTEL for the industry. Key trends are separate from the PESTEL analysis.
Select one of the six trends identified in the previous requirement and discuss how the selected trends could affect the focal company.
Discuss key areas of uncertainty related to the identified trend for the focal company that could potentially impact the company’s strategy.
Perform strategic analysis of Tesla’s mission, vision, and objectives.
