Teams, schools and sportswear industries can expect the best quality of products and services from the two brands. Nike is an international United States company manufacturer and it was founded by Bill Bowerman. Adidas is a worldwide firm that was founded in Germany by Adolf Dassler (Difference between Nike and Adidas, 2010). Athletes all around to word that play basketball, football, golf, soccer or any kind have worries about their performance being affected by the type of shoes or equipment they are wearing.
One of the main reasons to why it has become a world recognised brand is because of the way it markets itself. Nike markets itself through the use of social media such as twitter, snapchat, Facebook and Instagram. Nike also use advertisement on TV, in papers/ magazines, sponsorship of successful athletes, sponsorship of successful sports teams, media/press releases and creation of new products to market itself.

Nike’s SWOT Analysis As everyone knows Nike is a company that for many years has remained as one of the best business selling sports shoes and accessories. Their success and development is due to the great strategies that the company put into practice throughout his career. Their CEO, Phil Knight, made it clear that for the success of his company the constant changes and adventures have been one of the risks that have been taken, but in turn has given the opportunity to make errors that ultimately become lessons. In this project I will be analyzing the structure of this business, evaluating the four elements of SWOT analysis. This will allow me to understand their success and their recently problems.
It was being swamped by Reebok’s quick initiative on designing aerobics shoes and needed to respond dramatically and forcefully. It could be argued that the “Just Do It” campaign was not only about sneakers but about Nike’s own renaissance. No longer content to be the choice running shoe of a few thousand marathoners and exercise nuts, Nike wanted to expand its operation to target every American, regardless of age, gender or physical-fitness level. “Just Do It” succeeded in that it convincedAmericans that wearing Nikes for every part of your life was smart (the shoes are designed for comfort) and hip (everyone else is wearing them, you too can belong to this group.) Nike took its own advice and “Just Did It” by directly
Rihanna I chose to write about the famous singer Rihanna. Rihannas full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Rihanna was born on February 20 in 1988, on the Caribbean island Barbados. Rihanna's music career began when she was 16 years old, when she and her two friends managed to score an audition with the music producer Evan Rogers. The music producer was really impressed by Rihanna's outstanding talent anyhow the unfortunate part of this case was that he was not as impressed by the other two girls and he couldn’t see a future for them as a group.
In fact, “By 2001, nearly 2.8 million girls participated in athletics, representing 41.5 percent of varsity athletes in American high schools—more than an 847 percent increase from 1971” (Women’s Sports Foundation). An 847 percent increase is difficult to even comprehend. This means that the final amount has increased by a little more than nine times the original amount. To see that much of a difference from 295,000 women participants prior to Title IX is amazing progress toward the end goal of creating equality between the two sexes. There will always be those who question how much of Title IX is actually responsible for these changes.

Academic Accomplishment A great academic accomplishment to for me in high school was passing the AP U.S. History exam during my junior year. I am proud of this achievement because I was one of the only for out of about 35 kids that passed the exam. I studied very hard two months before the test and I am glad to say that it really payed off. Passing the exam also, in a way, gave me confidence because I thought I had no chance in passing the exam. Since only four people passed the exam, we got the chance to see the well-known musical “Hamilton”.
One of the proudest moments of my life came in 2012 when I received my Associate of Arts degree and graduated as the class valedictorian. I realize that for some people earning a two year degree may seem like no big deal, but the fact that I did it while incarcerated at San Quentin made it extraordinary for me. Before coming to prison, I had failed at my two previous attempts at junior college without earning a single unit. It would take getting locked up and separated from society,before I 'd start to buckle down. I was 33-years old when I completed my first Coastline College course in Geology and received an A.
Over recent years a question that has been of popular discussion is, should college athletes get paid? Throughout the past few decades college sports have become as popular as professional sports in America. As of right now college athletes do not get paid although many people believe that they should. The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) brings in an average of six billion dollars annually, which is because of the athletes so why should they not get paid? College athletes promote the school they attend by playing, and with all the money they bring to the school there is no reason they should not get some type of compensation.
I received the about $4,000 in academic scholarships for attending UW Parkside. I would have never thought this would have been possible when I was in eighth grade. I know that my future in school and my future work job is only going to get stronger with all og the hard work and dedication I am putting into to it right
Over the course of my season, I saw dramatic improvements and they were just in time for the game the college coach stopped by to see. After the game he approached me to say we would like me to come down to the college to have a personal meeting on April thirteenth. My goal for my junior season was to receive the single season hit record for my school. I fell just two hits short of the record my sophomore year. But the following season of my sophomore year, the game schedule was changed to much more difficult teams.
