Optional Extra Material: Smoke Signals (the movie). Note that your teacher cannot help you find the movie if
you cannot find it by yourself.
The short stories in The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven and Smoke Signals, the movie based on
the story “This Is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona” are to a great extent centered around the lives and
experiences of a Native American.
Based primarily on the stories you have read and the movie you have seen you are to deliver a speech on your
perception of the life of modern Native Americans and how it contrasts with your own experiences. Try to be
clear on why you believe certain things, rather than just saying that you do.
The following questions may be useful to structure your speech:
- How do the people from the reservation treat each other?
- What is your view of the reservations themselves? It might help to investigate their nature online.
- When Victor and Thomas leave the reservation, what did you expect would happen to them?
- In contrast, what did they actually experience in the ‘world outside’? When you discuss the story, focus on
presenting events that are relevant to your discussion – do not summarize the entire story.
- Can you see any parallells between the Native Americans and groups of people in Sweden?
- In contrast, are there relevant differences between the situation of Native Americans and other minority
Structure and Style
The speech should be explorative in nature, and need not be especially formal in tone.
What is important is that it is clearly structured, if you are to make a clear and interesting statement you need
to think about how you order your topics. In Pick and Mix 2 you will find instructions for both making speeches
and writing texts under the chapter labeled “Extra Material” .
Introduction: Say what you will talk about.
Following the introduction, bring up the examples, arguments and questions you wish to talk about in order of
importance. Start with the most important element, and let everything else follow from it. If possible, make it
clear how the things you bring up afterwards are connected to what you have already said.
Conclusion: Based on what you have already said, what is the listener supposed to take away from the
speech; what do you want them to understand?

A zero commission policy by SIA had cause boycott of sales of SIA tickets by travel agents who consist of 80% total sales volume in India, forcing the company to reduce flight and down sized in India [Chowdhury, 17 Apr 2009]. The buyer bargaining power is indeed very high for SIA. 4.5 Bargaining power of suppliers SIA have its own subsidiary Singapore Airport Terminal Service for ground handling service such as baggage handling and in-flight food and beverages supply. SIA’s other subsidiary SIA Engineering had been engage in aircraft maintenance and servicing. SIA are also financially strong hence does not depends heavily on financial institution for business process. This leaves the main suppliers of SIA only air craft manufacturer. Jet fuel, even though form up to 40% of the airline expenditure (as of year 2008), is a commodity that fluctuate with crude oil price. The airline mainly purchases its plane from Boeing and Airbus. Although there were no apparent substitute and high retraining and logistic cost will incur for switching of supplier, the demand is relatively weak for these suppliers in recent years with about 10% of the world’s fleet in storage [Calingo, 1997]. SIA had been continuously renewing its fleet even during peak of crisis which gives sales order that helps aircraft manufacturer pull through financial difficulty [Scott, 2008]. The average age of aircraft is 6year and 2month in 2008; signal a large volume of purchase on its aircraft, with planed spending of SGD 11,800million in the next five year on aircraft. It is Boeing largest customer on 777 series plane [Boeing, 25th Aug 2004] and first customer for Airbus 380. This makes SIA an important customer and enjoys high bargaining power over the manufacturer. 4.6 Relative power of Other Stakeholders>GET ANSWER
