Starbucks is attempting to slowly expand in a market where it was once shunned.It’s easy to find a Starbucks cafe almost anywhere in the world, but in Australia, there aren’t that many. That’s because in 2008, the company closed more than 70 percent of its underperforming locations, leaving only 23 Starbucks stores throughout the entire continent.Despite Australia’s deep love for coffee, the Seattle-based chain didn’t meet success Down Under as it did in other countries. Starbucks opened in Australia in 2000 and grew to nearly 90 locations by 2008. Starbucks moved too quickly, and grew faster than its popularity.”When they launched, they launched too rapidly and they didn’t give the Australian consumer the opportunity to really develop an appetite for the Starbucks brand,” said Thomas O’Connor, a principal research analyst specializing in consumer industries at Gartner.Australia’s already-thriving coffee culture also proved to be a challenge for the American brand. The Australian cafe industry is expected to hit more than $6 billion in revenue in 2018. The country has been immersed in the cafe scene since the mid-1900s when Italian and Greek immigrants moved to the continent. It was then that Australians were introduced to espresso, the key ingredient to an Aussie favorite — the flat white.
A Gnutella topology looks like a balanced ternary tree with 5 levels of nodes, i.e., peers. Thus, there is one root at Level 1, which has 3 children at Level 2, which each have 3 children at Level 3, which in turn each have 3 children at Level 4, which in turn each have 3 children at Level 5 – thus, there are a total of 121 nodes. What is the minimum TTL required for any node’s Query to reach every other node? Enter your answer as a numeric value in the text box below. (1 point)
