Question 3 : What Are the Industry’s Driving Forces of Change and What Impact Will They Have?
There are some factors which an industry uses, to make a decision. These factors can be customers, suppliers, competitors, etc. Something that really impactful to the action made by the industry is called driving force.

Choosing a Force
The police agencies of America are all highly competent and competitive forces within each community. All potential candidates much adhere to extremely stringent guidelines and meet exceptional standards to earn the right to wear the badge and serve their community. To be a part of any one of these agencies would be an honor and a privilege. When considering which one to select, the decision (for me) would be based solely upon the location. Being in an optimal location would serve as the basis for the decision. For this reason the Fort Worth Texas Police Department would be the perfect choice. The Fort Worth police

In India itself the initiatives concerning the issue of child labour in the garment industry have created a climate in which also the European importers, retailers and consumers can play a positive role by demanding garments produced without child labour, and under decent labour conditions for adults.
8. When child labour is almost absent in an industry, women labour is the next section of the labour force which is prone to exploitation. The export-oriented garment industry in Bangalore is an example of this phenomenon. If children are going to be replaced by adults, women are the next 'target group'. This asks for measures

How Can We Reduce the Police`s Use of Excessive Force?
Police`s use of excessive force happens in the United States every year. Even more, excessive force by police causes a thousand civilians to be killed in 2014 (Scott Shackford).

People in law enforcement, intelligence and I thank God every night we have them standing fast to protect us from the tremendous amount of evil that exists in the world” by Brad Thor, describes clearly about police, and they have seen as a shield for civilians. They can protect civilians from the harms from criminals. On the other hand, a lot of civilians get over harm during law enforcement

Expectancy Theory of Motivation
Expectancy Theory of Motivation
Expectancy theory states that a person will choose to behave or act in a certain way because they are encouraged to choose a particular behavior over other alternative behaviors due to what they perceive the outcome of that behavior to be (DuBrin, 2009). When selecting among different behaviors, people choose from alternatives which provide high motivational force. This force is presented as; Motivational Force (MF) = Expectancy x Instrumentality x Valance. Where motivational Force is the strength of a person’s motivation, valence is the strength of an individual’s preference for an outcome, and expectancy

The Physics of Tackling in American Football
The game that America has come to know and love may have more behind it than everyday viewers and fans realize. Physics fuels every aspect of the game of football and is evident in the collisions that take place on every play. Watching a game of football can be a great learning tool to anyone interested in better understanding the laws of physics. Many great examples are provided on every snap. Mass, force, momentum, velocity and torque all play significant roles in the tackling action performed by players and the better you understand these terms the better you can begin to understand the game itself (Gay).

Tests done on drugs are usually sponsored by drug companies, and researchers, therefore, are reluctant to submit their studies unless the results are positive or significant.
They also believe that journals would be reluctant to publish their results otherwise.
Now, however, editors of the US journals are considering a plan to force the drug companies to disclose tests that shed unfavourable lights on their products. They are considering a proposal that would require drug firms to register drug tests at the outset as a prerequisite to have their results published.

The history of the Reserve Army dates back to August 23, 1908 with the passing of Senate Bill 1424 (Brown 2008). The Reserve force was a Medical Corps and the first reserve force until 1912 when the Army Appropriations Act of 1912 allowed for Regular Army Reserve force (1913). The plan was to be a “constructive application to modern American conditions” (1913) as it should have been and should be today.

* To perform an experiment to measure the spring constant of a coil spring.
* Hooke's Law states that if the distortion of an elastic body is not too large, the force tending to restore the body to equilibrium is proportional to the displacement of the body from equilibrium.
F = - k r
where F is a restoring force, k is a constant of proportionality and x is the distance the object has been displaced from its equilibrium position. The minus sign signifies that the restoring force acts in the opposite direction to the displacement of the body from the equilibrium position. So, we can translate this

Understanding the Five Forces
Porter regarded understanding both the competitive forces and the overall industry structure as crucial for effective strategic decision-making. In Porter's model, the five forces that shape industry competition are:
Competitive rivalry. This force examines how intense the competition currently is in the marketplace, which is determined by the number of existing competitors and what each is capable of doing. Rivalry competition is high when there are just a few businesses equally selling a product or service, when the industry is growing and when consumers can easily switch to a competitors offering for little cost. When rivalry competition is high

Though some would look at music as a small footnote in the progression of humanity, it is in fact a much greater force; for some, it defines their very existence. The fact is, music is a driving force in society; it has been present since the dawn of man. The average person spends several hours a day listening to music, whether they see it as a main activity or just as something to take up space in the background. It is not surprising, then, that music has a great effect on how humans think and act, possibly even affecting intelligence

The positive externalities of education include, but are not limited to, a well-educated workforce that is more competent and productive at their jobs, a higher paid workforce, as well as a socio-cultural diversity in the workforce.

companies can take advantage of this opportunity to rise prices and earn greater returns.
The strength of the competitive force of potential rivals is largely a function of the height of barriers to entry. The concept of barriers to entry implies that there are significant costs to joining an industry. The greater the costs that potential competitors must bear, the greater are the barriers to entry. High entry barriers keep potential competitors out of an industry, even when industry returns are high. The classic work on barriers to entry was done by economist Joe Bain, who identified three main sources of barriers to new entry: brand loyalty, absolute cost advantages, and economies of scale
