– 阿卡迪亚惊喜第一次:波特兰灯塔前的广阔大草地

– 阿卡迪亚惊喜第二次:属于我们自己的海上日出

– 阿卡迪亚惊喜第三次:住的小木屋抬头仰望的星空银河

– 阿卡迪亚惊喜好多次:无比热爱捡石头的美美

– 阿卡迪亚悲情人物第一名:我们早上4点爬起来开车上山看日出。这里是美国最东的地方,所以能最早看到日出。五点不到太阳就从海平面蹦了出来。看完往回走的时候,一个印度小哥匆匆忙忙地从停车场出来,一手抱着三脚架,一手提着早饭。后面还跟着一脸气嘟嘟的女朋友。

– 阿卡迪亚悲情人物第二名:卡迪拉克峰是这里必去的看日出日落星空的点。日落八点半,我们车子五点半就在山下路边排队等着分批上山(前一天六点半来硬是没让进)。停了好久,队伍开始挪,大家都好雀跃地窜上前去。只见前面一辆车打着双闪不动,一个中国小哥半躺在驾驶位,睡。着。了。

– 阿卡迪亚悲情人物第三名:第一名事件如出一辙发生在日落后(好像远不如第一名悲情。

成就感

你知道你会有很大的成就感当你比赛得冠军,毕业拿学位,工作升职或者是减肥成功。

而我现在最大的成就感是把在车上睡着的美美搬出来移到床上而不吵醒她。

Just notes

Niu will have finals on operation management course tomorrow. Just some notes/stories he shared with me along the course.

  •  Benihana
    • founded in 1960′
    • Aoki, a wrestler who had qualified for but did not attend the 1960 Summer Olympics, started the restaurant with $10,000 earned from driving an ice cream truck in Harlem. The first restaurant, Benihana of Tokyo, was named for the red Safflower that was the name for the coffee shop owned by his parents in Tokyo
    • Believe Americans weigh presentation more than the taste
  • Zara
    • Core culture: fast response; fast fashion
    • No warehouse outside Spain
    • Fast turnover rate
    • Tremendous number of items on the catalog; Store managers have power/freedom/incentive to choose supplies
  • OR theory about the amount of supply
    • Service level: probability that customers come and are able to supply
    • underage: the amount/cost in case of short of supply
    • overage: the amount/cost in case of over supply
    • the optimal service level is underage/(underage + overage)
    • the desired supply/storage can be calculated as inverse CDF of the optimal service level
