What is the macro and industry environment in the Southeast Asian region for the entrance of new budget airlines? What opportunities and challenges are associated with that environment?
The environment for new entrants into the budget or low cost carriers market in the Southeast Asian region has become very competitive in the last few years despite the fact that the low cost carrier industry is still young. One of the most appealing aspects for operating a low cast carrier in Southeast Asia is the size of the market. Moreover, the untapped potential for growth in many countries within the region is great. As stated in the case study, some government regulations have been adjusted, lifted

On this day November 8, 2013 a hurricane called the Typhoon Haiyan hit. This hurricane hit the Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines. This hurricane was one of the most powerful Typhoons ever. This hurricane also put 12 million people at risk, killing 6,268 people. It also destroyed homes, trees were knocked down, and people were separated from their families. Haiyan is also the strongest storm recorded at landfall, and unofficially the strongest typhoon ever recorded in terms of wind speed. This hurricane is very dangerous and is nothing to play with.

Professor Koung of biochemistry in the Chinese University in Hong-Kong, the trade of swiftlets' nests began in China during the T'ang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.) Some time during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), an admiral named Cheng He introduced foreign nests to the Imperial court of China. He traveled throughout Southeast Asia one year and brought back samples of many different kinds of nests and presented them to the Imperial Court. Dr. Kong believes that the supply in China had been exhausted before foreign nests were imported. In the late 17th century, four million nests (125,000 pounds) passed through the port of Batavia, now Jakarta.

Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species are recognised, the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species (L. africana and L. cyclotis respectively). Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. They are the only surviving proboscideans; extinct species include mammoths and mastodons. The largest living terrestrial animals, male African elephants can reach a height of 4 m (13 ft) and weigh 7,000 kg (15,000 lb). These animals have several

WORLD MUSIC CHAPTER 5
1. Why does the Indian classical tradition dominate the musical image of South Asia in the west?
The classical music of India has gained most of the attention of outsiders probably due to the colonization era that has brought Indo-European invaders (Aryan Civilization) into their territory between 2000 and 1500 BCE due to the presence of rich resources. However, Indian music, unlike the communal music of Africa and Southeast Asia, is individual and often virtuosic and can be both vocal and instrumental. The Hindustani one (North) is more appealing to the Western society as it is more instrumental based, whereas the Carnatic (south) one is more vocally oriented

These manufactures are found mostly in Southeast Asia causing most retailers to do business with them but since there are a lot of these manufactures, switching costs are relatively low causing supplier power to be weakened.
