Business strategy is sometimes defined simply as a firm's high-level plan for reaching specific business objectives.
Strategic plans succeed when they 31 business growth, a strong competitive position, and strong financial
performance. When the high-level strategy fails, however, the firm must 32 change its approach or prepare to go out
of business. Strategies reflect the firm's strengths, vulnerabilities, resources, and opportunities. And, they also reflect the
firm's competitors and its market. Many different strategies and business models are possible, even for companies in the
same industry selling 33 products or services. Southwest Airlines (in the US) and Ryan Air (in Europe), for instance,
have strategies 34 providing low-cost transportation. The 35 for Singapore Airlines focuses instead on brand
image for luxury and quality service. In competitive industries, each firm formulates a strategy it believes it can exploit.

How do we get more young people to increase their consumption of iron-rich foods? Many nutritionists are advocating
the fortification (提高營養價值) of a number of foods. This may help, but I contend that we should also intensify our efforts
in nutrition education among our young people. I simply do not agree that it is futile to try to change eating habits. Once an
intelligent person—and this includes adolescents—understand the need for a healthy diet, I think he/she will act accordingly.
As for specific actions, I suggest that blood hemoglobin should be checked as a routine part of a youngster’s yearly physical
exam. It should contain at least 12 grams for a boy. If it is any lower, the physician probably will prescribe an easily absorbed
Adolescents—and everyone else—should cut out highly processed foods and drinks, which may be low in iron and other
nutrients. Read the labels for iron content. Especially make sure that all bakery products are made with enriched flour or whole
grains. Try adding liver, chicken, beef, veal or any other variety to the weekly menu.
Finally, even when you are trying to lose weight, always eat a sensible, well-balanced diet made up of a variety of fresh
or very lightly processed foods. This way, you stand a good chance of getting not only enough iron, but also adequate amounts
of all the other essential nutrients.

On June 17, 1774, the officials from Maryland and Virginia held a talk with the Indians of the six Nations. The Indians
were invited to send boys to William and Mary College. In a letter the next day they refused the offer as follows:
We know that you have a high opinion of the kind of learning taught in your colleges, and that the costs of living of our
young men, while with you, would be very expensive to you. We are convinced that you mean to do us good by your proposal;
and we thank you heartily. But you must know that different nations have different ways of looking at things, and you will
therefore not be offended if our ideas of this kind of education happen not to be the same as yours. We have had some
experience of it. Several of our young people were formerly brought up at the college of the Northern provinces; they were
taught all your sciences; but, when they came back to us, they were bad runners, ignorant of every means of living in the
woods... They were totally good for nothing.
We are, however, not the less obliged by your kind offer, though we refuse to accept it; and, to show our grateful sense
of it, if the gentlemen of Virginia will send us a dozen of their sons, we will take care of their education, teach them all we
know, and make men of them.
