    UGBA107 Coming into his first term as President, a huge controversial issue that President Obama had to take a stand on was whether or not to bailout American car company General Motors, as the company was strongly affected by the weak United States economy.

    In the speech about chili peppers, the speaker used the organizational pattern of topical for his informative speech.

    825 words, 4 pages

    Introduction After being designated the Sri Lankan market for our assignment we began in depth research as to what areas of their economy we could exploit. After further examination we decided upon the gem industry as we saw a lot of potential to combine with an Irish company, in this case Waterford Crystal. We chose an Irish company as a result of a rising cost base and lack of raw materials for Gems in Ireland, both of which are not a problem in Sri Lanka.
