Knowledge Is Power When It Comes To Commercial Products And Sales

In today's world, it is sometimes hard to be a consumer. So many products are out there, vying for our attention and our money. Which ones do we chose? Which ones can we live without? Which ones do we absolutely need?

Being an uneducated consumer can cost you time and money both. There are people out there pushing all kinds of commercial products trying to bring up their sales with a good pitch. But how do we know if what they're saying is really true? They're trying to convince us because they think we can't live without their product, but are they telling us truth or just feeding us a line?

There is no doubt that there are many good products out there worth spending our money on. The problem remains in finding them. On our own, we may be forced to try product after product to get what we need. That costs us money and time, neither of which most people have a lot of to spare. It would be invaluable to find a place that offered honest reviews on products and services you are considering.

Whether they be through blogs or articles or simple comments, being able to read about someone's personal experience with something can help you decide if it is for you or not. Even if someone writes a review that appears negative, it can be that what they didn't like about a commercial products or service is what you would like. After all, these reviews are just one person's opinion. But good or bad, you can process what you read and make the decision for yourself.

When money is tight as it is for most people in this economy, the more informed we can be about the decisions we make, the better we go. Being able to purchase a product or service with confidence in our knowledge of what we are buying is a good feeling. The more information we can have, the better our chances are in getting our money's worth.

Commercial products are everywhere. Sales people are trying to get us to buy their services. Everywhere common people are bombarded with something or the other that, according to them, is what we need to improve the quality of our life. They may be right, they may be wrong. In the end only our own knowledge of what we truly need and what they are offering will help us to make the right decision.

While it's never good that someone has a bad experience with a product or service, we can learn from their experiences. And in turn, others can learn from our experiences if we are willing to share them as well. This you can do by visiting such sites that allow you to leave a note on your experiences with certain products and services. One has to make out between good, bad, and worsts available. A thorough research and a little look around can solve this problem of anybody.

Experience and knowledge are always good things to share when it comes to sales and commercial products. As our knowledge grows when we learn from other people's experience, it is only right to also turn around and give to others what was given to us.

 


Construction Jobs Must Start With Mandatory Code Compliance

Whether you're a homeowner getting ready to dive into a little bit of do-it-yourself work or you're a contractor new to a particular area, finding out all the local building codes is vital before ground is turned. To dive into a construction job without full knowledge of the codes can result in some serious trouble down the road.

Codes that are necessary to understand inside out and backward will depend on the type of job being undertaken. Plumbing codes, for example, likely won't be needed for a bedroom expansion, but roofing, electrical and standard construction codes will be necessary.

For homeowners wanting to find out the basic requirements for anything from a simple deck addition to a full room, a trip to the local building office should net all the necessary information. Go with the lowest common denominator on the government food chain to ensure the most localized information. States may have their own building codes, but counties and even cities can make them more strict in certain areas. When this is the case, the city codes, for example, will take priority within that city's limits. The county codes will rule outside the cities boundaries and the state's will serve as a backdrop for all the codes.

Pulling permits for construction often beings in a local permitting office and the people who work in these places are generally more than knowledgeable about what's required for any type of construction. It's a good idea to check with the local permitting office before plans are even drawn up and at different phases of the construction project, especially if the job is a big one.

Depending on the type of construction being under taken, the local building office, too, may need to send inspectors out before work can progress from one stage to the next. In a typical room's construction, for example, inspectors will need to check the foundation for its compliance with codes, the walls, the fire safety ratings, the roof, the electricity and even if the plumbing if it's included in the structure. These inspections might delay construction from time to time, but they are vital for the building process to avoid unnecessary fines down the road and they serve another purpose as well.

Building codes in general are designed to ensure a structure is built to meet minimum safety and endurance requirements. Without codes, anything would fly. Homeowners would get rooms sure to fall down during the first big storm and lots of money would be lost. Building offices and permitting processes can be hard to navigate, but they're necessary and important to any good construction job. These inspectors who come out not only help protect your investment, they could be saving your life if they spot faulty construction and refuse to let it fly.

If you're a homeowner, consult with your local building permit office before starting any major project around the home. Oftentimes there are permits that need to be pulled for any major job. Not knowing the permits are needed isn't an excuse to avoid fines down the road. Contractors, too, should make sure they're more than familiar with all code requirements in particular areas.

 


The Importance of Experience in the Construction Industry

Do you really need experience for a construction job? Several would say that experience is not really necessary, and many construction companies do hire workers with no experience for smaller jobs. But according to James Day, an experienced AECOM public health engineer, experience is vital especially for construction and engineering students. "Start looking for work experience as early as you can, even in your first year," Day advices students. "Don't wait for your department's work placement tutors to feed opportunities to you."

And Day isn't the only one who thinks experience is essential. Most graduate recruiters agree that construction-related experience really improves a graduate's chances of landing job offers in the future. In the TARGET jobs recruiters' board held last year, majority of recruiters pointed out that generally, when it came to job offers graduates who had industry work experience were better able to answer pertinent questions and tackle assessment exercises.

Benefits of Experience

The benefits of experience are not only limited to graduates, but extends to those who continue to expand their experience through the years. James Moschoyiannis, better known in the construction industry as Jim Moschoyiannis, is a director and shareholder of one of Australia's leading construction companies, L.U. Simon Builders. But he didn't get to where he is now simply out of pre-graduate experience, but years of continued experience and learning. Throughout his career Jim has handled projects of every scale and from every sector, which led him to be promoted from being project manager to construction manager in just 7 years and appointed director in just 6. His long and fruitful career is evidence enough that experience is crucial not only in landing those first construction jobs but making it to well-respected positions within the industry.

Gaining Experience at the Start

For the majority of those entering the construction industry the most difficult part is finding opportunities to gain experience at the very start. Usually, recruiters won't take graduates on an unpaid basis due to minimum wage legislation, and most other companies can't afford adding paid placement students over the people they have already hired.

So what can construction students do to gain some early experience? Here are some helpful tips:
* Get sponsored. Sponsorships or scholarships from construction companies will not only provide financial support to students but will guarantee work experience placements, particularly during the holidays.
* Apply for paid work experience schemes. There are plenty available online for all kinds of construction-related positions from quantity surveyors to engineers to project managers.
* Work-shadow. Knowing the predicament of construction students, recruiters have been very keen on giving students every possible opportunity to gain experience. One of these is work-shadowing opportunities. When students spend time observing professionals at work rather than taking on work themselves, they don't go against any legislation and still gain insights regarding the work involved. To gain this opportunity, students must write well-researched and well-written cover letters and CVs asking for permission to work shadow a professional.
* Voluntary work. It's possible to do voluntary construction work during the gap year, but this may require a fee or some fundraising for certain charities.
* Temp work. If possible, students should check whether they can get temp work in a related field.
There's no doubt that experience bears a lot of weight in the field of construction. Gain it early and develop it consistently and you can achieve much success in the industry.

 


Crucial Tips for Choosing the Right Concrete Contractor

Are you a home owner? Do you want to renovate your home or build a concrete structure on your property? You may think that knocking down a wall or building a concrete garage is an easy job. But, remember not all DIY jobs are successful.

Expert Care for your Home

If you want your home to be sturdy and beautiful, you have to take care of it. And, who can give better professional care than an experienced concrete contractor? He/she will deliver quality results and save you from expensive problems in future. Choosing the right concrete contractor can make a huge difference to your home. So, how to choose the right person for your project?

Preparation is the Key

Start with a budget and know what kind of concrete installation or repair you want. If you are not clear about the project, you may end up spending more than your budget.

Also, having an idea of the project will allow you to explain your situation to the concrete contractor in a better way. It will enable you to obtain accurate estimates.

It is also important to ask your family, friends and co-workers for references. If you have admired your friend's home, ask him/her about the contractor.

The Interview Process

Once you have received estimates from concrete contractors, choose a couple of them who will work within your budget. In order to choose the best contractor, ask several questions related to the following things:

1. Raw materials

2. Sub-contractors

3. License of the contractor

4. Time estimate

5. Information of the crew

6. Insurance coverage of the crew

Also, do not hesitate in negotiating with the concrete contractor for obtaining the best price.

Inspection is a Must

You should not choose a concrete contractor by simply talking to him/her. You must inspect the following things before saying yes to a contractor:

1. Check the validity of his/her license.

2. Ensure that there are no multiple complaints against him/her.

3. Check his/her litigation history.

4. Read online reviews.

5. Check his/her nearby sites to get an idea of the work.

Sign the Contract

Once you have chosen the concrete contractor, make sure that every point discussed is present in the contract. It will help you in avoiding any conflicts in future. A typical concrete project will include the following things:

1. Time estimate for finishing the project

2. Payment schedule

3. Information related to the material

4. Contact information of sub-contractors

Once you sign the concrete contractor for your project, he/she will start the work. It is important that you stay in constant touch with him/her and discuss any new issue.

Once the project is finished, stay calm. Do not make 100 percent payment until you receive copies of materials' receipt and lien releases from the sub-contractor.

 


Office Relocation: To Meet the Needs of the Company

Businesses across the world find ways to increase their competitive advantage and be more cost-efficient and productive. Oftentimes, this means moving to a new office or a strategic site. Businesses relocate because of one or a combination of the reasons. Here are some of the major reasons businesses move to new locations:
* Workforce
* New markets
* Upgrade of facilities or equipment
* Lower cost
* Quality of life

Financial Firm Sets up New Headquarters to Reduce Operating Expenses and for Better Customer Service

The Hampton Roads Bankshares, Inc. recently announced the relocation plans of their corporate offices, including their Human Resources, Accounting and Treasury, Facilities Management, Legal, Risk Management, Compliance, Security, and Special Assets to a company-owned building in Virginia Beach, making them the largest community bank headquartered in Virginia Beach. Their President and CEO, Douglas J. Glenn, said that this relocation will let them serve the needs of their customers and communities efficiently and effectively and will allow them to reduce operating expenses.

Private Company Moves to New Large Location for Increasing Workforce

Portland Business Journal's 2011 15th fastest growing private company in Oregon-Southwest Washington, Eid Passport, Inc, will relocate and expand their headquarters in a prominent 70,000-square feet office space in Oregon. Their CEO, Steve Larson, said that this new office is more than double the size of their current facilities, which will allow them to meet the needs of an increasing workforce as they have more than doubled their number, bring their headquarters employees back in one roof as they are currently scattered in four locations, and position themselves for future growth.

Architectural Firm Finds Larger Office to Meet the Needs of Continued Growth

The leading metropolitan New York-based architecture, master planning and interior design firm Spector Group is moving to a new 13,000-square foot office located in Madison Avenue, which is larger than their current office, to meet their present needs and future growth. A principal at Spector Group, Scott E. Spector, said that this new space will be perfect for their current architects, additional design professionals, future needs, and continued growth to provide their clients with the high level of service they are known for.

Find the Right Office Removalist for Smooth Transfers

The only concern when moving to a new space is the hassle involved in office relocation, such as the furniture and equipment removals. Some companies do their own office transfers but it is very tiresome and burdensome because you have to worry about several factors, such as:
* Proper and careful handling of your office stuff
* Hiring trucks
* Systems downtime
* Cost of business interruption
* Transfer time

That's why to avoid these problems, smart companies seek the assistance of office removalists as they are the expert office movers.

Always Moving: Sydney's Trusted Office Removalist

In Sydney, when it comes to house or office relocation, removals and storage, Always Moving offers businesses stress-free services because they have over 25 years of experience and the right equipment to move office stuff smoothly and timely. Their goal is to help their clients have a swift transition and start business operations immediately in their new location.

 


Effects Of Foreign Aid In Kenyan Economy

Copyright (c) 2012 Morgan D

Aid and Reforms
Has donor financial support to Kenya given the donor community the leverage to strongly influence the shaping of Kenya's economic and social policies? Certainly Kenya has received massive amounts of aid over a sustained period of time--more than US$15 billion between 1970 and 1996. This substantial flow of financial and technical assistance has given donors leverage, but much less than the aggregate numbers might suggest. One important reason is that the amount of money that the donors disburse, through grants and loans, is greater than the amount of money that the government actually receives. If aid flows into the country outside the government budget, or the government has less control over the use of the funds provided to it, the government is presumably less influenced by aid in these cases.

However, as noted above, these agreements were not always implemented. Sometimes the probability of successful implementation was low from the outset. Other times the lenders or donors may have aligned themselves with well-intentioned technocrats who wished to achieve the results contracted for but lacked the political support to do so. It is our view, therefore, that donor aid can have an influence on the form of agreement reached and on the agreed timetable for implementation, but whether implementation is carried out depends in the end much more on domestic political and economic factors than on donor money . If aid has had only limited impact on the implementation of reforms, is it possible that a large volume of aid could make it easier for a government to ride out a crisis without undertaking needed reforms? It is probable that the heavy infusion of budget support Kenya received during the 1980s helped the government to finance the budgetary cost of an overstaffed civil service and inefficient public enterprises, thus enabling the government to defer reforms in these areas until the 1990s. Finally, can the threat or actuality of an aid cut-off induce a government to restart a reform effort that has stalled or gone into reverse? In such circumstances the pressure of debt obligations on past ODA or commercial loans would presumably give added leverage to the donor/creditor community to induce a return to the reform program.

The Investment Equation
Government investment and imports are negatively related to private investment while aid loans and the 1974 shift dummy have a significant positive correlation with private investment. These results suggest that government investment crowds out private investment. Some possible reasons for this include the fact that it is likely that public investment competes for available resources with private sector, or could be producing output that substitutes for rather than complements private investment. In addition, there is a possibility that deficit financing, which has been a common feature of Kenya's fiscal management since the mid 1970s, leads to crowding out of private investment via its pressure on interest rates. This is consistent with the finding that aid loans have a negative association with income but a positive association with private investment (as they relax the deficit financing constraint).

The negative correlation between imports and private investment is somewhat surprising because one would expect the opposite effect. A possible explanation for this is that certain components of imports could be competing with domestic production. Excessive protection of domestic industries for nearly three decades of independence created uncompetitive industries and therefore when foreign trade was liberalised, most of the domestic firms were ill prepared for the ensuing external competition. It is also possible that imports of consumables are increasing which could be growth-inhibiting.

Foreign aid loans are positively related to private investment. Because aid loans go to the government, it can be argued that these loans finance government expenditures that have a direct beneficial effect on private investment, such as transport and communication systems and other infrastructure, but do not require domestic financing (through domestic borrowing or taxes). The negative correlation between public and private investment suggests that it is the (domestic) financing of public investment that has a crowding-out effect. Foreign resources ease the government budget constraint and reduce the need for government to borrow from the domestic credit market, in turn releasing funds to the private sector. Similarly, reduction of government domestic borrowing due to availability of external aid alleviates pressure on domestic interest rates.

A surprising finding comes from the significant positive relationship between private investment and the long term effect of the shift dummy. A possible interpretation of the positive effect of the shift dummy is that the share of private investment in output was lower before the oil shock and higher after the shock. It can be argued that in 1973/4 prices of crude oil quadrupled thereby creating excess liquidity in oil exporting countries which in turn made it possible for government and private firms to borrow cheaply from these countries. From this viewpoint, it is possible that after the initial shock, private investment rose because cheap credit was available from the oil producing counties. Another conjecture is that given that Kenya supplies most of the East and Central African region with imported oil, which it refines and then re-exports to surrounding countries, the country benefited from higher oil prices on account of these re-exports.

Policy Implications
Although there are stylised facts that represent growth experiences of countries in general, growth remains a complex issue and growth regressions are as good as the data that goes into them. Growth is a summary of almost everything that goes on in a society and that being the case, it is never easy to pinpoint a couple of factors as key because these vary from country to country. The case for Kenya analysed in this paper was an attempt towards identifying some of these factors. Using a VAR approach, we found two long run relationships representing the output and private investment equilibriums. Output depends positively on private and government investment and imports, but negatively on net external loans. Private investment on the other hand appears to be positively related to foreign loans, but negatively to both government investment and imports.

Private investment has been a consistently strong determinant of growth both in the short- and long- run. The implication here is that in order to stimulate and sustain economic growth in Kenya, policy makers need to pay closer attention to factors that determine private investment. Government investment has also exhibited strong positive effect on growth. Nonetheless, it can be made more effective by re-directing it towards economic infrastructure. Furthermore, the issue of efficiency needs to be considered to ensure public investment is made more productive. The policy recommendation therefore is for the government to improve the productivity of its investment so as to generate positive returns and enhance its complementary role to private sector. It should also institute measures that stimulate and support private investment such as mobilization of domestic savings and creation of a stable macroeconomic environment.

Foreign aid in the form of loans can play a vital role in promoting growth directly or indirectly through private investment. It can be made even more productive if used to finance productive activities such as export promotion, infrastructure development, and domestic resource mobilization. This means that Kenya needs to have concerted efforts in improving foreign direct investments by for example making it easier for a foreign investor to trade in Kenya. Kenya could also diversify in the area of international trade and target new partners like China who need to feed its 1.3 billion populations and have only 7% arable land. Regional integration will help open borders for more business opportunities for Kenyans and East Africans alike. The government should also start looking for bond markets in new areas like the Middle East or China who we can engage as partners and not as donors to support our private investment.

Waterproofing: For Stronger and Lasting Structures

Australia's iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge finally got its needed facelift and the surgery was completed on time. Herald Sun reported that Sydneysiders can breathe a sigh of relief for Harbour Bridge's successful operation. After two weekends of delays, the $3.5million resurfacing and waterproofing of roads across the bridge was finished and re-opened a few days before Australia Day. The bridge got a waterproof covering to keep it in shape for the next 80 years.

This makeover project is just one of the building and infrastructure maintenance projects lined up in Sydney. New improvements are in the works across the city, such as the $6 billion Barangaroo development and the expansive transport facility that includes a 23-kilometre new rail, 15-kilometre tunnelling and 4-kilometre skytrain.

Keeping Well Maintained Building Structures

Maintenance of old infrastructures and construction of new ones include waterproofing of the structure. This covers surface and basement waterproofing of infrastructures for durability and longevity. Today's unpredictable weather, elevated water area or flooded location, and rising property value contribute to the need for buildings to be properly maintained and kept in good physical and working condition. Not only should maintenance and upgrades be limited to government infrastructures or commercial buildings, but also your personal properties.

Start Your Home Renovation with a Basement Waterproofing Project

If you're planning to renovate your home, one of the makeover projects you should consider prioritising is basement sealing because of its below-ground location or construction. Hydrostatic pressure, ground water intrusion, and water vapour permeation greatly affect your basement walls, joints and floors. You have to ensure protection of your basement's structural foundation and walls from leaks, cracks, moulds, decay, and moisture-related problems. Although waterproofing the interior walls can be easy, the best way still to prevent damage is external wall waterproofing; but waterproofing exterior wall is time-consuming and costly.

Before you proceed with your basement waterproofing plans, take a look at these factors first so your project will go as planned:

* Assessment
- Check cracks in your walls and fix them
- Check if you have a good drainage outside the house
- Clean the walls thoroughly
- Assess the damage

* Cost
- Varies depending on the problem and waterproofing solutions you choose
- Depends on who will do the waterproofing project: DIY, contractors, waterproofing companies

What's important in the pre-waterproofing stage is that you are able to assess the problem and attack it with a clear plan. Here are some ways to remedy the damages in your basement:

* Condensation
- Reduce dampness or humid air by improving ventilation or using a dehumidifier.
- Remove shrubs and flower beds that are too close to the foundation to avoid moisture.

* Seepage
- Check for water settlements in and around your basement, such as windows, gutters, and downspouts that are sloped toward the house.
- Install window well covers and downspouts, if you don't have any.
- Slope downspouts away from the house.

* Cracks
- Install an interior drain to collect the water and divert it to the pump.
- Use sealants and seal from the outside.

If you're unsure of how to go about these methods, you can always seek advice or hire a waterproofing company to help you, especially when it involves bigger problems and more complicated waterproofing systems.

Vending Machines Earn Easy Profits With The Right Approach

Almost no one can make it through a day at work without a simple snack and something to drink. But in locations that are far from eateries or those where work is too hectic, the only place to turn is a vending machine. Companies that have vending machines often hear a host of complaints about them for a variety of reasons. Those who want to enter the vending business will find it takes a little savvy to make customers happy.

Making money on vending machines is a very feasible process. These machines are needed by virtually every company that has more than a handful of employees. Whether the business you set up is designed solely for your profit alone or as one that splits profits with the company that plays host to the machines, there are ways to encourage purchases. Here are some tips to make sure your vending business is the best in town.

They include:

* Find good suppliers. Whether you're selling sodas alone or snacks as well, it's a good idea to find suppliers who offer you the most bang for your buck. Be certain to find the best bulk purchases, especially if you intend to keep more than a single machine stocked. The better your buys, the more reasonable your prices can be, which encourages sales.

* Fair pricing. If sodas at the store next door are 60 cents a can and you're charging 75, it's not likely you'll do well with your machine. Make the pricing fair, but do be certain to make a decent profit as well. Think quantity over high pricing and you'll be set on this front.

* Make frequent restock/maintenance visits. There's nothing more frustrating to a thirsty employee than a soda machine that's out of their favorite drink. Or, worse yet, one that won't accept dollar bills when it's suppose to. To keep your customers happy, be certain to check on your machines frequently.

* Stock with a variety. People like variety. Watch what they drink and/or eat the most and keep those items stocked, maybe even double stocked, but don't be afraid to try new things. Offering a variety of "junk food" snacks without a few healthy choices won't earn you points either.

* Ask customers what they want and pay attention to feedback. If you're catering to an office that has 10 diet soda drinkers and only two that drink regular pop, don't stock seven slots on an eight slot machine with regular soda.

The vending machine business can be lucrative for those who do their part to ensure the routes are properly handled. Just like any other business, you are only as good as your customers say you are. Take feedback and act on it. Make sure your machines function properly and keep them stocked with a variety, while being certain to always have employee favorites on hand.

Whether it's soda, snacks or both, variety and good customer service are the keys to this business. If you give your customers what they want and stay on top of their needs, they're likely to keep feeding your machines their spare change.

 


Healthy Commercial Cleaning Products

Healthy cleaning products does not mean that it will not hurt in any way or the environment. Think about how to use commercial cleaning products, for example, a month, so remember to breathe and they are exposed to chemicals, do you think that is good for your health in the long term? Probably not. This does not mean that you have to live with what cleaning products currently. There are other cleaning products in good health will have no effect on your health negatively.

The air quality in our home is very important because we are inside our home than anywhere else, why not have the best air quality. Unlike the interior set-up, however, corporations can not afford to shirk its responsibilities for cleaning and are bound by the rules of safety and hygiene and cleanliness to meet their damage to forward.

Try to stay away from these commercial air purifiers and the use of a natural and healthy. I'm sure you're familiar with some methods such as leaving the land of fresh coffee in the kitchen, who does not love the smell of coffee, even if you can not be drinking. If you have a large enough trash and it takes some time to complete, but it starts to feel before pulling out, try using orange peels fruits like lemon.

We have to consider many things when buying cleaning products, commercial or home. However, the most important thing we have to consider is which ones to buy. It is very easy to buy commercial cleaning products of any retail market, which are not suitable for some areas. Here's one thing we must remember that all these products are classified into three zones. It is industrial cleaning products, commercial and natural.

Each of these products will be available in stores in the main street where you can order from other manufacturers. If a product cost twenty dollars per gallon and the dilution ratio is one ounce per gallon that means that one gallon of RTU product costs only sixteen cents. Compare this cost of a commercial cleaning product with that of a RTU household product and it will be easy to see the commercial product is by far the more economic item to use.

Now there are many germs that compete with these commercial products and struggling to survive. All areas of the house should be kept clean. You should pay attention when choosing bath products. This is a large number of resident bacteria. It is your duty to keep the area as clean as possible to avoid any unwanted disease affecting their families. The bulk of the cleaning industry consists of all products, including bathroom and window cleaning products.

The most common cleaning products are healthy water, vinegar, water, lemon juice, baking soda, cornstarch and soap. If you use these products in a variety of ways you can keep regularly cleaning your house feel natural trading. They feel good, but they have potential side effects, especially if you have respiratory problems. Cleaning health is something everyone can afford and are very easy to obtain.

 


A European Recession: Will There Be One?

If you think we have it bad here, just take a glance at Europe, where investing in stocks has become a chore full of patient and sleepless nights. In Germany, the most significant country in the eurozone, the benchmark DAX is down over 25% since late July. Just in one month! Things do not look promising.

Stock markets across Europe are tanking and, as I have said, Europe is not a place to park your capital based on my global economic analysis.

There was more evidence of an economic downfall in Europe after the European Union's economic sentiment index fell for the sixth straight time. Germany showed the biggest decline. Without a recovery in Germany, the eurozone is in trouble, but we know that.

The reality is that growth around the world is stalling and the fear is that it could worsen and drive another recession or deepen existing recessions in many regions in Europe. And, with the existing debt and deficit issues, it will be hard for the governments to focus on driving growth. The aftermath could be several more years of economic stalling in Europe. This is a big problem, as Europe has over 500 million people and is a major economic zone.

As I recently discussed, we are seeing downward revisions in gross domestic product (GDP) growth. Europe remains a troubled area, as the number of downward revisions to GDP has been picking up.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that GDP in the eurozone will grow 1.9% and 1.4% in 2011 and 2012, respectively, but I wonder if these estimates are achievable, especially if the debt and austerity issues continue to worsen across Europe.

Morgan Stanley cut its global GDP forecast for 2011 and 2012 and added that the U.S. and the Eurozone were "dangerously close to a recession." UBS AG and Citigroup, Inc. cut their forecasts for global and domestic GDP.

Citigroup cut its global GDP forecast to 3.1% for this year from 3.4% and to 3.2% in 2012 from 3.7%.

The cuts are not good, but they are also not unexpected. I expect there could be more trouble areas surfacing in Europe, including Spain and Italy. More bailout funds will be required.

Greece may not be able to dig itself out of its current mess, as the troubled country continues to fight a recession, but is cutting capital spending in order to receive emergency funds. This is not what you want to do in an economy struggling to survive.

And, as we know, you cannot ignore the issues in Europe, as the global economies are so interconnected now that problems across the Atlantic would impact this side of the world.

How Much Do You Know About Organic Ingredients in Skin Care Products?

In this day and age, most consumers are incredibly conscious of not only the environment, but the way that commercial products impact their health and well-being. For this reason, there are more organic products on the market than ever before, especially since many people struggle with allergies and sensitivities to many of the chemical ingredients found in over-the-counter skin care products. If this sounds like you, and you are looking for a healthier alternative in your beauty products, then consider the use of organic ingredients in skin care to maintain your natural beauty!

Many over-the-counter cosmetic products use common ingredients like dyes, acids, and fragrances, which can heavily irritate the skin. Conversely, organic skin care products use natural ingredients, like essential oils, antioxidants, proteins, and vitamins to benefit the health of the skin. These are vital ingredients within beauty products to replenish and rejuvenate the cells within the complexion that can often become damaged with age. One of the most important components to consider within your skin is collagen. Collagen and elastin are the substances underneath the surface of the skin that keep it firm and supple. These components begin to break down with age and outside damage, which can cause a dry, dull, and wrinkled complexion. If you hope to regenerate and rehydrate your skin, then you must repair it with natural and organic ingredients!

The important thing to understand is that the demand for organic ingredients has brought natural products to many convenient locations, like drug stores, grocery stores, and health food stores. There are also a number of retailers online available for you to purchase organic products from. These products offer a benefit in that they are normally free from dyes and fragrances that can cause allergies and sensitivities in many skin types.

The selections of organic products also extend to both men's and women's skin care markets. Within men's product lines, you will be able to find organic aftershave and even organic shaving lotion. Women's products also offer a great variety of natural choices in toners, cleansers, and creams. One thing to keep in mind is that these organic alternatives may cost more than cheaper over-the-counter products, but it is a worthwhile investment to protect your skin from preservatives.

When reading many commercial product labels, you may find chemical ingredients like TEA and DEA. These are harmful chemical ingredients that can create nitrates in the skin that cause cancer. Furthermore, many commercial products also contain preservatives and bactericides to prevent the products from contaminating. These ingredients are carcinogenic and often dangerous to the complexion.

If you hope to safeguard your skin and protect it with the products that you use, you must read your ingredient labels carefully. It is also important that a product is labeled as organic by the USDA, meaning that it contains over 95% organic ingredients. Doing your homework as a consumer will offer you a helpful way to protect your skin by purchasing the right products with organic ingredients to rejuvenate your complexion!

 


Relax More and Work Less When You Hire the Right Caterer

Planning a party is a big deal. The location must be set, invitations need to be sent out, favors possibly need to be purchased, and then there's the issue of food. Some party hosts prefer to do everything themselves, but then they find they miss a lot of the party. Since there's no fun in that, smart party planners turn to caterers to lend some assistance. The problem with that is finding a good person to take over. This is where the Internet can really help.

Finding a caterer online is a fairly simple undertaking and the best thing is that it's even easier to check out a caterer's background, too.

When looking for catering online or anywhere else for that matter, there are some things that need to be considered. Exactly what you're looking for must be determined, or the wrong caterer could be hired.

Consider these things:

* What kind of food you're looking for. Do you want a brunch, light lunch or maybe a dinner? Is a particular style of cuisine desired? Are you looking for an expert in a specific ethnic arena?

* How many people will be present? Some companies can handle almost a limitless amount of guests, while small catering firms may in fact have a limit on what they can handle with ease.

* Do you want just a caterer or a caterer and party planner? Some firms will handle everything from the invitations down to the desserts. This choice should be made in advance since it can directly effect the type of service professionals you need to seek out.

* What types of things do you need the caterer to provide? Should they be prepared to deliver everything from the china to the desserts or are they just handling the main course and perhaps the side dishes?

* Do you want them to serve, too? Or, perhaps you just want the food dropped off in warming trays with pickup after the party?

* Will the occasion be formal or casual? This will help determine menu and even style of dress if the caterer is handling the serving.

* Budget. This is an absolute must. A few hundred dollars will likely take care of a small barbecue party for 15, but it won't cover a caterer's costs for a formal sit down dinner for that many with servers, crystal and china, too.

* How much you plan to participate? Do you want to sit back and relax or help oversee the affair? The caterer should be informed of this decision in advance.

Once you've made some decisions, the Internet is the place to go to match things up. Some catering companies can handle everything if that's your desire and allow you to kick back and enjoy the party. Others will work with you to ensure the party's success. Look for caterers in your area that match your needs and check their backgrounds and references. It's also possible you'll find independent reviews of different caterers online, too, which is great for seeing what past customers have thought of their work.

By bringing a whole host of caterers right to your computer screen, the Internet is a great way to find someone to handle almost any party. There's no reason to do all the work when a good caterer can make the job of hosting that much easier.

 


Tough Times Result In Tough Tactics For Debt Collection

It's a new year, a time for renewal and a time for hope. But most of us have heard way too much about the economic crisis and how it's impacting in all our lives. So our hope has to be tempered with a healthy dose of reality. Perhaps you are fortunate enough to still have a job, one that enables you to live fairly comfortably and pay your bills. For others, times are tough and the debts are piling up.

In such a climate, debt collection professionals have had to tighten their belts as well. It's become much more difficult for them to do their jobs because folks who would ordinarily somehow come up with the cash, simply cannot. Bill collecting agencies are being forced, by necessity to become more creative and aggressive.

Lawyers, specializing in consumer law, have been seeing recent rises in abuses of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Commonly known as the FDCPA, this act is the law that protects all of us against unlawful debt collection tactics. In some cases the methods they use are ingenious and quite frightening.

In most states, there is a Statute of Limitations that puts a cap on the number of years a debt can be pursued. In many states, it's six years. Well, now there is a whole new thing called zombie debt collection, where the old debt rises from the dead. You might get a call demanding payment of an old bill that you thought had been laid to rest.

Some collectors contact credit bureaus, informing them that an old debt is, in fact, a new one. This is called re-aging debts and lends credibility to their shady ways, since the credit bureau is recognized as a credible source of information.

Then there is the attractive promise that a negative mark on your consumer credit report will be erased if a token payment is made. Don't fall for this. Your money will be gladly accepted, but your report will not be updated. Then to add insult to injury, the new activity may revive the statute of limitations, leading to new legal threats, perhaps even from another company.

If you are ever offered a low-rate credit card, beware. This could be the bait-and-switch trick, where you might discover old, charged-off debts tacked on to the balance owed. Of course, the card issuers state that they disclosed that the old debt would come with the card, but borrowers insist no such disclosure was ever made.

In this mean new world, one of the worst methods of harassment, has become even nastier. Verbal abuse has been taken to a new level, including demands for sex and suggestions that the debtor should consider suicide.

If you find yourself on the receiving end of some of these tactics, there are many things you can do. First of all, you should be familiar with your credit report, so that if a collection agency tries to dig up an old debt, you'll be able to dispute it.

If you are being phoned at all hours of the day and night, even though you have requested, in writing, that they cease and desist, you should document the calls. Most certainly include any messages and contacts also made to your cell phone.

Of course, it can be safer to simply not answer the phone. By simply talking to the debt collector you can re-open the file, and the statute of limitations, once expired, will re-open like a pandora's box. The caller has no obligation to read you your rights.

After being confronted with this nasty litany, you may rapidly be coming to the conclusion that you need help. As in most situations, knowledge is a good thing. Your very best defense is to know your rights, and there are trained professional lawyers who can make your life a whole lot easier.

Don't tramp through this minefield alone, contact a fair debt attorney as soon as you can. Go online to get all the details. There you will discover the pleasant fact that you don't need any money upfront. Your lawyer will be paid only when you are compensated for your suffering.

Cape Town Is The Symbol For Economic Growth In The Western Cape Of South Africa

Nicknamed 'the mother city' and located on the Western Cape of South Africa, Cape Town is the cultural and business center of South Africa. As such, it is the very heart and soul of this part of the continent. Founded in 1652, it was built by Indonesian, French, Dutch, British, and German settlers as well as the native Afrikaners who inhabit the Western Cape of South Africa. It has grown to a population of over 3,500,000, and so it is also the largest city in South Africa. Cape Town is strikingly beautiful as well. Sitting at the foot of the massive Table Mountain and surrounded by two oceans, the landscape of Cape Town has been captured by photographers from all over the world.

This is fitting, because Table Mountain not only dominates the city of Cape Town, it looks over almost the entire Western Cape of South Africa. With a plateau of 3,300 feet, Table Mountain usually has a layer of clouds surrounding it, which is often referred to as the "tablecloth". Visitors can reach the summit by roads or cable cars, and when they get to the top they can see both the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean as well as the entire city of Cape Town.

This includes the suburbs, which are scattered around the entire mountain. Here, you will find the residential neighborhoods of Cape Town, which are truly diverse and representative of the different cultures of the Western Cape of South Africa. There is plenty of local shopping here, as well as trendy restaurants and the largest collection of Cape Dutch style architecture in the entire world.

Cape Town is full of things to do and see. While this city is best known for diamond shopping, whale watching, and the exclusive beaches of the Western Cape of South Africa, there are important historical sites to visit as well. Attractions like Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held captive for his protests of apartheid, have become symbols of hope for the future generations of Cape Town.

Reminders like this keep Cape Town and the Western Cape of South Africa on track to becoming the world class venue that it needs to be in order to keep growing economically. Apartheid, which was introduced in 1948, kept South Africa from realizing its dreams for decades. With the decline of apartheid, the city of Cape Town has seen phenomenal economic growth.

Tourism, manufacturing, mining, drilling for oil, and the importing and exporting of goods are driving the economic boom in the Western Cape of South Africa. Many major companies now have headquarters in Cape Town, and the real estate market is thriving.

The higher educational system for the Western Cape of South Africa is also centered in Cape Town. This includes the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University which are located here. These are the leading Universities of South Africa.

Cape Town is definitely the most extraordinary city on the Western Cape of South Africa, and by international standards is considered to be a world class venue. It has overcome much political adversity to become a strong city for the western Cape of South Africa and a very bright economic future is predicted for this incredible city.

 


IT Training Leads To Secure IT Jobs

IT training is a widely-offered, widely-varying course on several subjects in the field of IT, or "information technology". Information technology is a large category of knowledge dealing mainly with using new technology, such as computers, to store, maintain, calculate, and process data and information. IT training is a very important career choice in the modern world, as it will grant the individual exceptional job security in a quickly-growing marketplace. Because it grants almost guaranteed job placement, a career in the IT field can be a very smart, safe, and profitable choice.

computer software efficiently; however, it can also touch on other subjects such as engineering hardware for computers or installing and maintaining computer networks. Training in this career path can be taken at many colleges, as well as tech schools, universities, and even online and self-study programs are available.

Although most information technology work is secretarial, such as data entry, there are many jobs that deal with the more "hands-on" side of the IT trade. These include network managers, computer hardware technicians, Internet service providers, tech support, and even computer programmers. Thus, the courses offered by colleges and so on are generally categorized and specialized based on what specific path the individual wishes to pursue.

A large portion of information technology jobs are, of course, dedicated to training those new to the field. Although the teacher may be required to have a broader knowledge of the various tasks and skills involved in information
technologies, teaching others is most certainly a viable option in the IT field and would provide a refreshing alternative to the most widely accepted visions of what IT jobs are.

Upon finishing one's IT training, the next step for the majority of people is to get an IT certification, which several companies and organizations offer. The examination involves a thorough test-based examination of the individual's knowledge of the information technologies. The certification lets potential employers know that the certified technician is knowledgeable about their field.

Finally, an IT-certified person has many opportunities open to them in their specific career path or chosen specialization. Whether it be data entry, hardware management, software programming, or any of the other various jobs available in the field, information technologies are taking a quickly-increasing role in our modern world and will assure job security to those knowledgeable about IT.

Just like in Math courses, it is important that you memorise and understand the definitions, take down good notes, solve the problems, and do the experiments. Theory and practical must go together. Here are some helpful tips that can make studying science less stressful:

* Biology
- Read the lecture material in advance or before attending the class.
- Participate actively in lab sessions and perform the experiments.
- Take down notes and compare notes with a friend to fill in any gaps.
- Read materials with a critical eye and attend lectures with a critical mind.

* Chemistry
- Read actively - think about what you're reading, relate it to previous concepts, and understand it.
- Self test yourself - ask and answer questions about what you read.
- Outline what you've read, using main ideas, important formulas and applications.
- Spend enough time practicing by solving problems provided in the book or redoing homework exercises.
- Don't leave your questions or problems unanswered; review your materials or ask your instructor and classmates.
- Take down lecture notes in outline form and read over them as soon as possible so you can rewrite what's unclear or finish what's incomplete to make them accurate.
- Observe keenly and participate actively during experiments.

* Physics
- Remove all distractions when studying.
- Get your homework done and redo the exercises later on.
- Make sure you've mastered previous concepts and basic principles so you can correctly understand, analyse and solve current problems.
- Practice solving different problems.

Science is a hands-on course so get involved in class, during experiments, and when doing homework and problem-solving exercises.

Are Commercial Cleaning Products Too Strong?

When it comes to clean the property market seems a bit saturated at the moment. There are a number of items on the market that all do the same job and demand a higher percentage kills more germs and cleanliness. Some even claim that eliminate 99% of germs. Some argue that this is not necessarily a good thing to have germs around us helps to ensure a healthy immune system.

So are these commercial cleaning products good for us? Well, to answer this question, we must look at the whole picture before cleaning Commercial Products people fell sick more often, the seeds may not have been as strong or as powerful as the seeds that we face today 'Today, but it could still give serious trouble if caught something bad.

When looking for a good cleaner, there are some things to consider that will ensure that the product is one that will be the best value for the money spent. First, look at the dilution rate to see how we need to mix with water to give the product RTU (ready to use). If a product costs twenty dollars a gallon and the dilution ratio is one ounce per gallon, that means a gallon of RTU product cost sixteen cents. Compare that to a commercial cleaning product for RTU Product of the house and it is easy to see the product of the company is by far the most economical to use.

With the invention of germ levels of commercial cleaning products has decreased and the standard of living has increased. Simple microbes gave people the insects and diseases have been eliminated and eradicated before our work surfaces stomach, but the immune system of the person is weakened first.

Another side effect of powerful commercial cleaning products, is the fact that germs like humans will evolve to survive. So to kill some strains of an error, others have evolved to take their place. Some of these new bugs are stronger than the initial bugs were killed. However, it would not have been able to avoid this situation, you can develop a product because of the consequences that will occur in it, it would simply be wrong.

Overall, I think the commercial cleaning products have made it much safer if you do not have life. For example, most of the various sectors of industrial sand would be difficult without the use of commercial cleaning products. Hospitals, schools, universities, police stations, offices of the Council require that all cleaning supplies to keep things clean and organized.

If any of these places have dining facilities and catering services, then it is even more important to use the latest cleaning products. Food preparation is one of the main ways in which people can transfer germs untreated counters or work surfaces to their bodies.

What the future holds for the cleaning market is uncertain. Is that the products are becoming stronger and continue the germs in their war to fight. This is a question we can not answer at the moment, but we can be confident that companies will continue to develop products that meet the attacks against germs and diseases.

There has been a lot of talk lately about network marketing so let's shed some light on the topic. Millions of people these days are starting a home based business in response to a still tight job market. There are many business models available when starting a work from home business, MLM seems to be by far the most popular.

So the time has come for an unbiased network marketing review.

If this describes you, if you're looking to start a network marketing business of your own, then please take a moment to consider the following 5 key points:

1.
Modest initial investment - no question, when you have a business start up, an initial investment must be made. Additionally, all businesses require an ongoing reinvestment of capital. A consideration of the required business start up capital is an important part of any network marketing review. Starting a network marketing business typically offers a low barrier of entry, that is, a low initial investment with moderate reinvestment requirements.

2.
Availability of assistance - because the network marketing industry is so prolific, there is a ton of great information out there about how to build a successful MLM business. Of course, not all of the information you'll come across is worthwhile. But, as long as it's coming from a trustworthy source then chances are good it's advice worth following. So be selective about your sources.

3.
Variety - there is a growing number of companies today who distribute their products under the network marketing model. Where ever your interests lie, chances are good you'll be able to represent a company who has a product line you'd like to represent.

4.
Acceptance - not too long ago network marketing was somewhat frowned upon. Not everybody is warmed up to the idea of network marketing but it does get a great deal more respect today. Even renowned author Robert Kiyosaki and former president Bill Clinton have both given a positive network marketing review. Everybody from the stay at home mom to doctors and attorneys are now in the MLM industry. The appeal of network marketing as a work from home business has garnered great momentum over the past few years.

5.
You call the shots - what would you like to derive from your network marketing business? Do you want to supplement your existing income or perhaps you're looking to ? The MLM industry provides a flexibility that very few other home based business models can offer.

No network marketing review would be complete without a discussion of the real business aspects of the industry.

An objective network marketing review will stress that it is a serious business. Or, to put it more accurately, network marketing will only be as serious a business as you make of it. Simply put; you will get from your business in direct proportion to what you put into it.

Strong efforts will always bring about strong results and weak efforts will always bring about weak results. Any network marketing review is incomplete if you fail to really get this point.

If you have aspirations of building a successful MLM business then be prepared to give it your honest, 100% effort. Presistence is key. Even though there are some terrific network marketing training materials on the market, do not expect to become an expert overnight.

To put it another way, you've got to stay with your business building efforts . You can be certain that the going will be tough at times mostly when starting out.

 


Pharmacy Automation is a Big Step but One Worth Considering.

It is important to carefully consider the expected benefits when contemplating the step toward pharmacy automation, . Because of the considerable investment of effort and time, it is wise to prioritize and plan the steps according to the greatest potential benefit and needs.

One key benefit is the reduced risk of costly and dangerous errors in filling prescriptions. Electronic records can be cross checked and quickly searched to accurately match the patient records and the prescribed medications.

A well designed system can help the pharmacist ensure that the prescription is filled exactly as the doctor intended. It can also help to identify possible interactions with other medications the patient may already be taking.

By automatically keeping track of inventory, electronic records can help the pharmacy realize cost savings from increased efficiency. The system can determine how soon a particular inventory item will be depleted, the next shipment can be ordered no sooner than necessary, but in time to avoid running completely out. This helps to optimize cash flow without endangering the ability of the pharmacy to fill prescriptions as needed by customers.

Another benefit of automation is improved efficiency and speed in all areas of pharmacy operation. This increased efficiency may enable the pharmacy to run properly with fewer staff hours, cutting down on the expect of payroll dollars and to pay for overtime expenses.

Improvement of service and a lower waiting time can improve customer relations and increase how many customers come back to you for more business. The days are gone when customers will put up with being told to come back in an hour or longer to pick up their medications.

Busy customers must be able to complete the transaction on the spot so they can be on their way. Other improvements that customers like are being able to use an automated Internet or telephone ordering system so that their prescriptions will be ready to pick up without waiting and when the customer needs them.

Pharmacy management is a operation with many facets, involving customers, prescribing medical experts, pharmacy technicians and pharmacists. Each of these roles has apart to play in implementing a pharmacy automation plan. Benefits of a well planned implementation can be observed at every stage of the process.

 


Understanding Immunoassays for Dummies

Immunoassay is a test in biochemistry that measures a specific concentration of a substance within a biological liquid. This means that an immunoassay test can be conducted on blood, serum or urine to measure the concentration of a substance that is found in that liquid sample.

The immunoassay test uses a specific antibody in order to test the concentration of the substance within the sample. The antibodies react with an antigen to show the results of the test. The most common antibody used in the immunoassay test is the Monoclonal antibodies. These antibodies have the capability to bind to one site of any particular molecule and are the best way to provide an accurate test result.

The specific type of antibody must have a high affinity to the antigen that is being tested for; otherwise the antibody may not bind to the antigen to get an accurate test result. What is measured to discover the test result is the number or antigen and antibodies present in the liquid being tested. This measurement tells the biochemist how much of the substance being tested for is located within the sample and how concentrated it is.

So what is the immunoassay test good for? This test has been playing a very important role in the diagnosis of HIV and AIDS. The HIV test that anyone can go to the doctor to get is an immunoassay test that measures the concentration of the virus within the sample liquid, often blood or urine. This also helps to determine at what stage the HIV is present in the body. This test helps scientists for many other diseases as well.

There are two different types of immunoassay tests. The first one is the competitive immunoassay test. This test allows the unknown sample to compete with the antigen so that the antigen binds with antibodies in the sample. The ratio of antigen to antibody is measured. This will give the concentration of the substance being tested for within the sample.

The other type of immunoassay test is the noncompetitive immunoassay test. This is also referred to as a "sandwich assay" because the antigen in the sample in bound to an antibody site, then the antibody binds to the antigen. This test is measured with the amount of antibody in the sample. This method is proportional to the concentration of the antigen, and not the ratio of antigen to antibody. This test is used to test for a known substance. If the antigen and antibody do not bind, then the test is negative. This is a faster and easier method to use when testing for substances in the sample.

Immunoassays are very important tests that perform a variety of functions in everyday medicine. While they are used primarily to test for things such as HIV in the body, the tests are also an important step in discovering the next new way to test for other diseases and conditions that science does not have a test for yet.

 


Residential House Cleaning Business - 4 Ways to Attract New Customers

If you own a residential house cleaning service, then you are probably always looking for ways to attract new clients. By having a full schedule of regular clients, you are ensuring that you are profitable and with even more clients, you can begin to expand your business for even greater profits.

* Choose a Target Demographic

When you are advertising a residential cleaning business, you may feel that it is important to advertise to everyone! This is true, and if you run print advertisements in a local paper, then you are advertising to a wide group of prospective customers. Although you may consider working on marketing campaigns that target a specific group of people.

For example, if your best customers are pet owners, then you may consider creating fliers and advertisements just for that group and displaying the ads in places where that specific demographic is located. Your fliers can target problems that plague pet owners, like pet hair on furniture or pet odors in carpet, and show how your cleaning services can help to reduce their pet-related cleaning problems. The fliers can be placed in local pet stores, at dog parks, and, perhaps, you can make a deal with a pet grooming company to give one another leads. The more targeted approach allows you to hone in a specific customers and their special cleaning needs.

* Offer Discounts and Coupons During the Slow Season

Every type of business has their slow season. Is your slow season right after the holidays? Or maybe during summer when a lot of families are traveling and away from home? When you know when your slow season occurs, then you can plan ahead and offer special discounts. For instance, you can have a New Years Special of buy one cleaning service now and get your next cleaning visit half off, that can be used at any time. Offering specials that target your slow season may help to give you enough work to keep you busy and it may also attract some new customers.

* Offer Coupons in Print Advertisement

If you spend money on print advertisements in a local paper, then you should think about offering a coupon for new customers, on the condition that they mention the advertisement. Keeping track of which advertisements are worth paying for is essential for your business, and the discount for new customers can entice readers who are considering a cleaning service.

* Offer Discounts to Current Customers

Your current customers are a great source of referrals. And if you have been doing a great job, then they should not hesitate to give their friends a referral for your cleaning services. Every quarter or around every holiday, you should consider leaving a flier with your current customers to offer them a discount if they refer you to a new customer, even if that customer only uses your services once. The reminder every now and then of your standing offer to your current clients can keep you fresh in their thoughts if a friend or relative is ever looking for a new house cleaning service. Also, if you send holiday cards to your customers, this can also be a good time to remind them of discounts offered for referring new clients.

 


Know More About Abrasive Blasting

For decades abrasive blasting has been used in the manufacturing industry. Almost all metal work requires a clean surface to work on. Rough surface or any contaminants on the surface is trouble for any manufacturer. Thanks to the effective process of abrasive blasting, any type of paint, oil, rust and other debris can be easily removed to get a clean surface.

The use of abrasive blasting is not limited to removing dust and other common debris. It is also used to remove harmful materials like radioactive materials, asbestos, lead, zinc and other hazardous materials.

The process of abrasive blasting involves propelling of abrasive material under high pressure to get a smooth surface. Usually a centrifugal wheel is used to blast the material. There are many different types of blasting processes; wet blasting, bead blasting, bristle blasting, dry ice blasting, wheel blasting, sand blasting, shot blasting and soda blasting.

The huge industrial abrasive blast equipment is used by large scale manufacturing units while there is a smaller version the equipment called portable blast system. These are fuelled by a mixture of diesel and compressed air. The portable blast system has a blast pot just like its larger version that can sustain high pressure.

Workers who work with abrasive blasting equipment and dust collectors have to wear appropriate protective gears like work goggles, protective suit, work gloves and shoes. The abrasive blasting systems are noisy equipment so, workers should also use ear buds for the protection from ear damage caused due to excess exposure to sound.

The dry abrasive blasters produce a lot of dust as a waste product. If any toxic material is involved in the process then there are high chances of the worker breathing in chemicals that if inhaled may cause lungs illness or/and permanent damage. Ensure that industrial dust collectors are installed to keep the air free from toxic material. The dust collector system should be installed on the ground and not suspended in air to prevent static discharge which may trigger potential fire.

The best thing about abrasive blasting is that it does not use any chemicals. By using the combination of air or water and natural substances like sand or glass manufacturers can get clean and smooth metal surface to work on. This is an environment friendly process that helps us to make the planet a greener place to live in. Furthermore, it is a very cost effective method to get the work done in a very short span of time with amazing finish.

 


How Clean Is Your Restaurant

Eating out is a very popular past time. It's so much more than feeding a need. It is a whole social occasion where people expect top quality food, served with excellent presentation and in comfortable surroundings with a certain ambience. None of these things can come together without a great deal of organising and precision planning. It's no understatement that working in a kitchen is a job where you come under extreme pressure to stay on top of your game.

Most of us will have some inkling as to the workings of a professional kitchen. We know that preparation works starts early in the morning and that many kitchens don't actually shut until late at night. The thought that chefs rarely have a social life is actually quite true.

So when, among all this, do the kitchen staff get chance to clean to the standards that the health and hygiene authorities expect? Spot checks are made into the standards of all kitchens where the public eat from and a lack of a certain standard of cleanliness can mean the immediate shutting down of a kitchen and the loss of a great deal of business. How can this be avoided?

Many kitchen owners will call in the services of a professional cleaning company. Specialised industrial cleaning will be scheduled around the activities and business of the kitchen and a thorough deep clean is possible in a relatively short space of time, given that the cleaning staff have all the necessary tools to make the job so much easier.

The use of steam in industrial cleaning is effective, hygienic and quick. There is no residue of chemicals left behind which is important in a kitchen. On top of that steam is ultimately the best method of removing a build up of grease. Grease is notoriously difficult to shift and to leave it to build up too much means the kitchen extraction system is much less efficient. This then leads to cooking smells lingering and even making their way from kitchen to restaurant and nobody eating their double chocolate sundae wants to smell the fish being cooked for the next table along.

As well as reducing efficiency, a build up of grease can be dangerous. In the unfortunate event of a fire, this would be spread at a dangerous rate through any grease and this is one of the things health and hygiene inspectors would look at. Industrial cleaning is a great deal more effective than what the kitchen staff could manage with a bottle of cleaner and a kitchen sponge at two in the morning.

There is often a system of ventilation ducts within a kitchen and the bigger the establishment, the bigger the system. It is important that these are also kept as clean as possible to keep the whole system working to the best of its ability. This is not something that a busy kitchen staff can give thought to and this is where industrial cleaning comes in handy.

Industrial cleaning by a specialised company can be carried out once or twice a year with minimal inconvenience to the business. They can choose to close for one day, use a day when they would normally be shut, if at all, or if the kitchen is of a reasonable size then the cleaning can be done overnight.

Of course, these services come at a cost but it is relative compared to how much more efficiently the kitchen will run and how the health and hygiene officials will always be happy, meaning that the business does not suffer any enforced closing days or the possibility of being shut down.

What Is The Expected Time For A Moving Company To Finish Moving My Furniture?

The length of time you can expect it to take for a moving company to finish moving your furniture depends on a lot of factors. For example, the more furniture you have and the further you are moving, the longer you can expect the move itself to take. Typically, assuming the homeowners have prepared in advance, movers can pack up and load your furniture in one day or less.

For moving day to go smoothly, you should take care of all of your packing responsibilities. This will enable the movers to come in and take care of their part of your move as quickly and efficiently as possible. Once the movers arrive at your home, they will have a much easier time loading your furniture and other items if you have taken care of all of your responsibilities.

If you are just moving across town, it is entirely possible that your movers will be able to completely finish moving your furniture out of your old home and in to your new one on the same day. This is possible only if things go smoothly and you don't have a very large quantity of furniture and other belongings. If you are able to get moved into your new home on the same day you leave the old one, you will save money on your moving expenses and be happy that the stress of your move is behind you.

Of course, if you are moving to another city or state, the distance which your belongings have to be transported will greatly impact the amount of time it takes to move your furniture. Be sure to read your contract with the moving company very closely. It is not unusual for moving companies to delay cross country moves until they have a full load of items to transport, which could result in delayed delivery of your furniture.

Here are some top tips to help you expedite the move and get the moving company in gear for the scheduled date of your move. They are:
- Make sure that everything is completely packed before the moving company arrives to take care of your move.
- Any loose items shouldn't be left lying around inside the house or on top of furniture. They should be placed in moving boxes.
- Make sure that all moving boxes are sealed airtight and labeled properly, either on the sides or on top.
- Any electronics that are to go with you need to be unplugged and packed into boxes.
- Please be certain that any furniture such as dresser drawers and nightstands are empty.
- Work with the moving company and the movers on all fronts and be present during the move itself.

By following these steps to make the whole move an easy transition, being prepared will save you time and money.

 


Creative Uses of Waterjet Cutting

Do you believe water can slice fragile material like cake or a sophisticated material like thick steel slabs? Have you ever imaged a bone surgery being conducted using water as a cutting tool? A jet of water, when pressurized up to 50,000 PSI becomes a powerful cutting and slicing tool that can be used in a myriad of applications. Waterjet can also be used for perforating a material or drilling holes. And the best part is, it is considered to be more efficient than other heat-based cutting methods such as lasers and plasma cutting.
Waterjet cutting technology uses a high-pressure flow of water or a mixture of water and abrasives to cut a wide variety of materials.

This particular cutting technology has been in use since the 1970s. Back in those days, it was primarily used for cutting wood-fiber tubes. Soon after its invention, water jet technology became a much-preferred cold-cutting process. Soon, it began to replace conventional cutting and machining methods.

Some of the major advantages of waterjet over conventional cutting are:

It is dustless

It does not release toxic gases in the atmosphere

It can be stopped or slowed in between the process without causing damage to the material

It can be operated on any part or point of the material

It is isothermal

Using waterjet in contemporary industry

Today, many industries incorporate water jet cutting technology in their cutting operations. The aerospace industry, which involves many sophisticated operations, uses water jets for shaping, cutting and reaming tight-tolerance yet intricate aerospace components.

In the mining industry too, powerful jets of water are increasingly being used for cutting and drill and cut rocks in hard-rock mines. In addition to hard-rock mines, jets of water are also used in coal mines. They are cost-efficient and effective at the same time.

It is also used for hygienically cutting meat, vegetables, fruits, and other products such as a bread and cake. Since there is no 'mechanical' contact, the possibility of food contamination is reduced. The jet of water is so fine and it cuts so quickly, that the material being cut doesn't get damp or wet.

With the increasing popularity of waterjet cutting, a number of worldwide institutions and establishments are conducting higher research in the science of cutting with water jets. Thus, this process is bound to become more efficient and useful in the years to come. With the advancement of waterjet as a cutting method, it could soon prove to be a much better alternative to traditionally used cutting methods, especially since it is a non-polluting method.

There are several reputable firms that offer highly competitive prices on cutting services that make use of water jets. These firms can work with a variety of materials such as aluminum, steel, phenolics, brass, plastics, marble, cork, titanium, granite, concrete, and so on.

 


Common Diabetes Markers In Biotech

Diabetes is one of the fastest growing health epidemics in the United States today. There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is a genetic condition that cannot be prevented, but Type 2 Diabetes is most often linked to obesity and poor eating habits and can be prevented. There are three common diabetes markers. These markers are termed polyuria, polydipsia and polyphagia.

Polyuria

Polyuria is the medical term for increased urination. When a person contracts diabetes they tend to urinated far more frequently than before the diabetes was present in the body.

Polydipsia

Polydipsia is the medical term for increased thirst. Diabetes causes the body to become more thirsty. This can be attributed to endocrine imbalances in the body.

Polyphagia

Polyphagia is the medical term for increased hunger. Increased hunger is one of the most common signs of Type 2 Diabetes. As the sugar or glucose levels plummet, the body experiences increased hunger. This characteristic is attributed to the bodies need to regulate the glucose levels and energy levels in the body.

Before these diabetes markers are noticed, a condition known as metabolic disorder often presents in patients with a high risk of contracting diabetes. Metabolic disorder is a combination of symptoms caused by the body's inability to regulate glucose. Until recently, doctors did not recognize metabolic disorder as a precursor to diabetes.

The most common diabetes markers attributed to metabolic disorder are abdominal obesity, raised triglyceride levels, low HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high fasting blood glucose. In many cases, each of these symptoms is treated separately and are thus never connected with the onset of diabetes.

Diagnosing Diabetes

Diabetes is most often diagnosed with a blood test. An Insulin Elisa test kit provides all the needed reagents to test the blood, or plasma, glucose levels in humans. The kit is utilized by physicians to test the glucose levels in the blood. If the fasting glucose levels are above the normal range, diabetes is diagnosed and the patient is placed on a medical regime of diet and exercise to regulate the blood glucose in the body.

Most forms of Type 2 Diabetes are treatable without medications. Due to the fact that Type 2 Diabetes is caused by poor eating habits and obesity in the majority of cases, changing these aspects of life can eliminate the need for treatment all together.

In recent years, gastric bypass has been used to reduce the weight of the patient suffering from Type 2 Diabetes. Treating with gastric bypass is a quick and effective way to treat both the metabolic syndrome health problems and the unmanageable glucose levels. After gastric bypass, nearly all patients will never have to worry about diabetes again.

It is essential to follow the doctors recommendations and treatments when suffering from diabetes. Untreated, diabetes can lead to blindness, loss of limbs and death. The Insulin Elisa kit helps to determine if the patient has moved from metabolic syndrome to diabetes and guides the doctor in regards to the best possible treatment strategy for the condition.

 


What is Janitorial Software Good For?

Janitorial software is a cleaning and maintenance program that has been designed specifically to help businesses compete more vigorously and be able to address any arising opportunities that will enable them to enhance their profits.

As part of janitorial services in a company, one needs to manage the business well; improving their operations and enhancing profitability. This can range from managing the orders of the customers, scheduling their services for them as well as keeping a track on their payments and invoices among other operations. It is easy to use but powerful and is very effective in the managing of the everyday operations of a company. The main aim of this software is to organize the business operations.

Janitorial software is involved in the formation of schedules, accounting, time keeping as well as job estimating and has several important features towards each end. Other than managing the customer orders, it also has several reports that are useful permitting the company to analyze their cash flow, inspect their profits as well as their losses. It also has customizable dictionaries of business categories, which can be tuned to be in line with the needs of a particular company.

Categories such as customer, vendor, order, expense, service and many others are available in this software and can also be adjusted or edited to suit the needs of the company. The benefits of this software include an improvement in the motivation and performance of the employees, which enables the company to make more money, get other businesses and be able to build stronger relationships with customers.

However, the software alone is not the answer to improved performance as how the company utilizes it is also key.

Janitorial software also works hand in hand with CMMS which stands for computerized maintenance management system and helps business owners to manage the quality of their work, manage customer expectations, bill all the completed work and save money on work management.

It also helps one to automatically manage facility maintenance work and document it without any complications; dealing with preventive maintenance, management of employees, management of inventories, service requests such as automatically dispatching workers, recording the time of response as well as the duration of data.

It also involves quality inspections, which include live updates that show the overall performance or performance by site, building, equipment type or the employee. This may include trend analysis as well as graphic displays. This makes the job quite simple to manage and the employees much more productive.

It is important to maintain records of company activities to cover its assets. This involves much paperwork, which may consume time and hamper the company's productivity.

One of the best features of CMMS software is how it so significantly reduces the paperwork of the company, making it virtually paperless and providing an easy but powerful means of managing the business facilities. However, it can be also be said that it is not so much the features of the CMMS that impact on the success of the business but rather, how well this software is utilized.

 


Review of Health and Wellness

Why are we writing this Health and Wellness Industry Review? What's the big deal about Health and Wellness? The answer lies in the convergence of two trends. The first trend was sparked by the fact that the Baby Boomers are living longer than previous generations ever have in the past. They're looking at ways to keep themselves healthy, active and vital so that they can enjoy life into their later years. They're focusing on being well - or "Wellness" instead of waiting to get sick and just reacting to it with medications.

The second trend, is also at least partly the result of baby boomers and the longer life span of the population in general. What options are available to people now to ensure that they have the money to enjoy their retirement - sometimes for the next 20, 30 or 40 years? Now that the old financial system has broken down, everyone needs to be looking at how they're going to provide a passive, residual income stream for their future.

Thus, we get the birth of an industry - Health and Wellness.

Due to the reasons mentioned above, lots of people are thinking about launching a home based business.
With the economy the way it is, and unemployment rates growing, it's no wonder some are turning to a home business as a way to make a living.

But how do you decide what to do? So many choices out there, so many "business opportunities" screaming "I am the best opportunity-make lots of money...fast...easy...overnight..." and on and on it goes.

Hopefully you've gone through our other articles to help you and guide you down the path that's right for you.

When you're trying to decide what type of home business you want to set up, of course it's a good idea to take a look at which industries are popular - and will continue to grow.

We're going to focus on an industry that has absolutely exploded - and is anticipated to continue to grow for years to come - the Health and Wellness Industry. People who have become involved in this industry are finding it extremely lucrative and are poised to do quite well financially in the future.

The Health and Wellness Industry is concerned with prevention of illness and disease.
This is different from Health industry which includes doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies. This industry focuses on treating the symptoms of illness, and not on prevention of sickness, and or helping people feel healthier.

The Health and Wellness Industry is expected to be a $1 trillion dollar industry by 2010. This industry includes nutritional supplements, juices, health/fitness clubs, chiropractic, naturopathy, homeopathy, and holistic health care. So what are the forces making the Health and Wellness industry so hot?

The economic downturn has affected peoples' ability to spend money on insurance, doctor visits, and hospital stays. People are focusing on prevention of sickness and disease: According to cNMI (Natural Marketing Institute) President Maryellen Molyneaux:

"NMI research clearly shows that the current economic downturn is changing consumer behavior on many levels, including spending related to health and wellness. So while sales in each category continue to grow, consumers are becoming more discerning and are looking for real value in their purchases and not just the perceived value. This shift in behavior will impact manufacturers and retailers not just short-term but also in the future. With the economic future unclear, NMI projects that the health and wellness industry as a whole will remain relatively stable over the next five years at approximately 7% growth each year."

More and more people are searching for ways to prevent illness and improve the quality of their life through better health. Many people feel that the nature of western medicine is treating symptoms, rather than preventing disease. They also feel that what traditional medicine does best is treating emergencies, not not keeping people from getting sick in the first place.

Many Doctors and scientists have dedicated their lives to finding natural "cures" for common "dis-eases" and have embraced a natural approach to treating peoples' conditions.

Pharmaceutical concerns: There is growing mistrust in the general population towards the pharmaceutical industry. Side effects of medications are often serious, and sometimes even lethal.

Lawsuits and product recalls are making people leery of just taking a pill in hopes of getting better. The majority of prescriptions are merely to treat symptoms of sickness, not in curing or preventing disease.

This is creating lifetime customers. Pharmaceuticals are being designed to be taken for life - and people are becoming aware of the dangers of this to their health.

People are living longer. And they want to be healthy doing it. Life spans keeps getting longer, and people are willing to invest in their health more now than ever before. They are seeking ways to feeling good, staying well, and having health and vitality - and are turning to the Health and Wellness Industry for the answers.

 


Industrial Lighting-Improve Performance and Safety for Better Efficiency

Industrial buildings, like all workplaces, require well-planned lighting systems to support various activities. Better lighting is a valuable tool for brightening industrial prospects. Appropriate quantity of light is essential, but quality issues are just as important in providing a comfortable and safe working atmosphere. When the Industrial Lighting meets both quantity and quality needs, it adds measurably to worker performance and productivity. To be a leader in today's competitive environment, industrial leaders need to focus on the importance of performance, safety and energy efficiency to address the critical issues of their productivity. Lighting can support these three key factors and help you transform your facility in meaningful and innovative ways.

Performance : As operations directors and manufacturing executives seek higher levels of output and quality often in the face of shrinking resources they demand better performance from every link in the supply chain. Lighting can play a key role. Better work environments can elevate worker motivation and increase their productivity. An effective, well-illuminated environment can positively impact employee performance and support operational objectives. Visual appeal is one way that lighting improves workplace effectiveness. Comfortable, welcoming workplaces motivate workers to be more effective for longer periods of time. Enabling employees to operate at their best is critical to achieving a high performance manufacturing environment .Lighting not only makes spaces desirable by enhancing the visual environment, but also by making a space more flexible. A more flexible space can lead to more efficient workers.

Safety : Industrial managers are focused on safety first; workplace safety is an essential factor in industries. Production facility must make the most of its skilled employees and keep them safe, productive and loyal. Workers need good ambient and task lighting to perform at their best and can benefit from light that renders colors accurately, increases comfort, and controls glare. Comfortable, bright facilities promote alertness and motivation that can help keep workers in the right frame of mind, and present a welcoming space to greet the customer .Satisfying worker's physical needs through a uniform, balanced visual environment can pay off in increased productivity. A properly illuminated environment can help reduce production errors, accidents and adaptable lighting systems ensure the right light is available for specific tasks. Other benefits of well designed industrial lighting include reduced eye fatigue and headaches, which keep workers alert on the job.

Lighting that fulfills the following criteria:
* Sufficient light at the visual task,
* Good uniformity of the lighting over the whole task area,
* Balanced luminous distribution throughout the room,
* A lighting installation without glare,
* Good color rendering and appropriate light color,
* Lighting without flicker,
Will increase worker's feelings of well-being and improve their motivation.

Energy Efficiency: Energy is a large component of manufacturing costs, so leading manufacturers look to high-efficiency lighting .In today's economy and increased competition manufacturing executives and plant managers need to do everything they can to save money on energy and maintenance. Even small gains in efficiency can lead to significant savings. Going green doesn't have to cost more. A lighting upgrade is an investment not only in reducing electricity consumption but also in improving the performance of the building and its occupants. You can save money by refitting older lighting systems with new, high-performance long-life lamps and electronic ballasts. Or replace high-wattage lamps with today's lower wattage, Energy Efficient Lighting.

Investing in an Auto Welding Helmet

Welding can be a dangerous task. In order to protect the eyes from serious injury, investing in a good welding helmet is a must.

If a person is familiar with or has experience in welding, they know just how important it is to have the proper safety equipment before starting any job. However, with a variety of options on the market today, it can be difficult to decide which auto welding helmet is actually the best for them. There are a few things to consider when purchasing an auto welding helmet.

The first thing for a person to consider is whether or not they like an auto-darkening lens or a standard glass lens. While the standard glass lens is more common and less expensive than an auto-darkening lens, the auto-darkening lens is a more modern and technologically advanced approach that overcomes a variety of disadvantages that come with the less expensive standard lens. The use of LCD technology allows for more clarity through automatic filters making it easier for the welder to see the details of the torch and the welded materials.

A person is likely to also encounter the options of a fixed or variable shade. While they may only need one fixed shade lens because they are welding one material to the same material, a variable shade can come in handy if they intend on ever welding different materials together.

Lens reaction time or switching speed are also important factors when choosing the right welding helmet. The number that indicates the switching speed is in reference to how quickly a lens will take to switch between natural light and a darkened shade when welding actually begins. The quicker this is the better. If it is too slow, the eyes will potentially experience discomfort. Faster speeds often come at more expensive prices but if a person spends most of their time behind auto helmets the added comfort can easily be worth the added expense.

The auto welding helmet that provides adjustable sensitivity and delay control features can provide added comfort and convenience. Though these features are often absent on lower grade helmets, the more expensive semi-professional and professional helmets allow for the welder to adjust the amount of brightness needed for the lens to darken as well as the option of how long the lens will stay dark after welding has ended.

When a person tries on a welding helmet they are likely to notice the weight of the helmet. Even a one pound difference can make a big difference when wearing an auto welding helmet over a long period of time. It is almost always best to go for a lighter helmet to prevent strain and fatigue while welding.

When purchasing a welding helmet, a person should be sure to check that it meets the national safety standards. Just because it is on the market does not mean that it adheres to the current safety standards for welding helmets. They should do a little research online and make sure they are getting the most comfortable and the safest auto welding helmet available.

 


Jobs in the Medical Industry Today

The medical industry is expected to generate more new jobs over the next decade than any other industry. It is predicted to increase spending on manufacturing in the next few years. The medical industry is first and foremost an industry, which exists to make money. The health and well being of its patients is one of the primary concerns of this industry, as well as making money.

The medical industry is growing rapidly, and now is your best chance to grow with it. It is currently undergoing a technical revolution. The medical industry is still behind the curve, with most doctors` offices and hospitals still relying on paper instead of electronics, for patient records. The demand for remote access to diagnostic information has exposed the inadequacy of traditional media such as film, magneto optical (MO) disk, and tape which hinders duplication and transport.

The medical industry is building upon the knowledge, resources, and technologies emanating from the efforts to further understand the genetic contributions to human health. As a result of this expansion of genomics into human health applications, the field of genomic medicine was born. The medical industry is a business, and they realize the profit potential of such "fountains of youth," and will charge dearly for them.

The medical industry is a primary growth sector for most of the world. We play an increasingly important role in supplying precision machined components used in medical monitoring systems. The medical industry is booming in China, which boasts the 7th biggest medical market in the world with more than 6000 pharmaceutical companies and enterprises. All this presents enormous opportunities for cooperation between China and the Western world in the medical field. The medical industry can be a tough one that includes long hours, tough shifts, and emotional drainage. However tough it may be, there is no excuse for medical professionals to slack though, because they have the lives of their patients in their hands.

The medical industry is large, bureaucratic, and sometimes entrenched in the way it operates. It does not see a lot of financial incentive to move to new technology, despite the well documented benefits it offers. The medical industry is projected to have the strongest employment growth of any industry within the next decade, so seeking a medical job is certainly a wise decision. Continued advances in technology, as well as a growing and aging population, will spur this growth and create opportunities for well trained individuals.

 


What Can a Chef Earn?

Chef's wages vary considerably. Wolfgang Puck's 12 restaurants brought in $12.2 million last year, The Food Channel's Emeril Lagasse made $7 million, and the 'enfant terrible of French cooking' Jean-Georges Vongerichten went home with $3 million.

And then there's the "real" world: The median hourly earnings of chefs two years ago was $13.43, with the lowest 10 percent making less than $7.66 an hour, and the top 10 percent plucking down a healthy $25.86 hourly wage.

So there you go: Unless you're one of the blessed food wonders of the world with plenty of backing from top sponsors you're most likely going to fall in the latter group of those head chefs making anywhere from the unacceptably low, "you gotta be kidding" pay scale to the, "yeah, I can get by on that" wage.

A lot depends on what part of the country you're working. Executive chefs in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Houston are going to make significantly more than those in Mobile, Alabama or Mesa, Arizona. Population aside, it's the deep pockets of the customers in those former locales that make the difference.

Another big factor is what type of establishment you work in. Highbrow, four-star-rated restaurants are going to earn you a much fatter paycheck (and, in turn, demand your best performance!) than Granny's Supper Shack that opens only when Granny's not down with a hangover or the Pizza Palace whose main attraction is its "certified chef" that can twirl a round of dough over his head.

At some places, the relatively low wages may be offset by the employer paying for the uniforms (yes! The tall white cap and white jacket!) and free or reduced-priced meals. But this is strictly arbitrary; Federal law allows meals and uniforms to be deducted from wages if the employer so chooses something to definitely take into consideration when you're interviewing.

And benefits (health insurance, sick days, etc.) are only for full-time employees, so part-timers need to figure out another way of meeting medical bills and avoid getting sick.

Unions for chefs do exist. These unions include membership not only of chefs, but all kitchen workers, down to the dishwashers and busboys. The largest are the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees International Union (HERE) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). HERE recently merged with the Union of Needletrades, Textiles and Industrial Employees (UNITE) to form UNITE HERE, and represents 440,000 active members and more than 400,000 retirees throughout North America.

The SEIU represents 1.7 million working people and 120,000 retirees. So when you are considering employment, you might want to learn whether or not the establishment you're looking at is a member of one of these powerful unions.

Now you know what a real, red-blooded American chef earns. If the beginning wages don't scare you off, you may truly be one of the Chosen Few destined to "chef" your way through life.

One thing to remember is that although starting salaries look meager, a reputable chef with some solid experience say six or seven years under his or her belt, can make around $120,000 per year on average. So knuckle down, take your licks, and get going you're a chef, right? Go get cooking!

 


A Brief History of the Second World War

During the 1920s the American economy increased in strength and the European economy remained stable up until the crash of 1929. In what has become known as The Great Depression many people suddenly found their savings worthless, leading to a disillusionment with capitalism and a rise to prominence of fascism. In 1933 Adolf Hitler rose to power in Germany at the head of his Nazi party.

Hitler began to rearm Germany, and remilitarised the Rhineland in 1936, breaking the Treaty of Versailles. With Hitler's anti-semetic policies and aggressive re-armament of Germany war was inevitable. On 1st September 1939 Germany invaded Poland and Britain and France both declared war on Germany and its allies.

The Second World War would prove to be even more lethal and long-lived than the first war. A global conflict in every sense of the word the war would see an unprecedented number of casualties and would change the world forever.

The Germans took Poland while its government fled to London, and then in May 1940 Germany invaded Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Germany was extremely successful in its early expansions and soon also took Denmark and Norway. Within four weeks of their assault Germany had taken France and on 14th of June 1940 Paris was occupied. Soon after Hitler would launch an offensive against Britain, attempting to gain air superiority in order to clear way for an aquatic invasion from France. In what has become known as the Battle of Britain the RAF successfully repelled the German attacks and claimed aerial superiority over England, ending German hopes of invading.

Turning his attention away from Britain, Hitler looked to invade the communist Soviet Union. After a delay in Yugoslavia and Greece after the Italian's defeat Germany assaulted the Soviet Union with the largest army ever known to man. Over three million Germans took part in the invasion, laying siege to Leningrad and getting to within 15 miles of Moscow. The Germans would have to stop for the Russian Winter however, and by Spring 1942 an entire division were trapped in Stalingrad, eventually leading to their surrender. Hitler had seen what should have been a sure victory turn into a defeat. Russian casualties were astronomical, they lost around 27 million people, about half of the total casualties in the war.

As Germany were getting frozen out of the Soviet Union Japan attacked Pearl Harbour, which drew the United States into the war. The Americans, allied with the British and the Soviets would continue to push the German forces back.

On 6th June 1944 the Allies launched an attack onto the beaches of Normandy. The German thought that the Allies would attack Calais and were unprepared for an invasion on the beaches. At a great cost of human life the beach invasion was successful and the Allies were able to push into France. By 1945 the German army was pushed back by the Soviets from the East and the Americans and British from the West. Once the Soviets reached Berlin Hitler committed suicide and seven days later the Germans surrendered, ending the war in Europe. The USA would end the war with the use of nuclear weapons against Japan in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

After the war the United States and the Soviet Union emerged as the two dominant super-powers, with much of Europe in ruin after the bombing of the war. Many top-ranking German officers were convicted of war crimes, including those committed in the holocaust. During the war the Germans placed millions of Jews and other minorities in concentration camps, starving and eventually murdering them in one of the worst events in human history.

After the use of nuclear weapons by the USA at the end of the war America and the Soviet Union would enter the Cold War, a period of deep mistrust, propaganda, espionage and an arms race in which both countries would be on the brink of war but where fighting never actually broke out. It is thought that the only reason that stopped a war from happening is that a nuclear war would lead to mutually assured destruction and so it was in each country's best interests not to launch missiles. The Cold War would last right up until 1991. After the failure of the League of Nations in preventing World War 2, the United Nations was formed in 1945. The organisation still continues today with nearly every country a participating member.

The next decades are characterised by a growth of technology and industry and the increased Americanisation of the West.

 


The Rich Dad Poor Dad Review

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a New York Times best-selling book on financial knowledge by Robert Kiyosaki. Originally self-published in 1997, this book only caught the attention of a major publisher after the author has promoted it in seminar circuits. This Rich Dad Poor Dad review is a brief look at the ideas presented in the book such as financial know-how and the ability to free one's self from running the unending rat race and working hard for money. The book gained much popularity since its release in 2001 and has been used and endorsed by financial experts and advisers. This Rich Dad Poor Dad review is spurred from this fact and the phenomenal wave of financial power it brought about that swept many countries and inspired many people. The book's writing is simple and free from financial jargons. It is suitable reading for people from different backgrounds.

The book is largely based on Robert Kiyosaki's life growing up in Hawaii. It started out with Kiyosaki narrating his experience as a young boy with "two dads", both very influential to him. One is his biological dad which he refers to as his "poor dad" and the other is his bestfriend's dad, his "rich dad". His "poor dad" was highly educated but grappled for money all his life and died leaving behind debts to be paid while his "rich dad" never finished eighth grade but became one of the richest people in Hawaii. Both had opposing views on money and success which created confusion in Kiyosaki as a young boy since both dads at the time we're both still starting out financially. But this made him curious and intrigued at the same time. This eventually taught him to choose for himself which views made more sense and which would work best for him.

Throughout the book, Kiyosaki compares his two dads- their financial views and principles. His poor dad was less dynamic and did not have a strong business sense. He believed in getting a good education and then a good job. His rich dad believed in empowering one's self through financial literacy to be able to have more money and avoid the vicious cycle of waking up, going to work and paying bills. The following are the insights introduced by the rich dad and which have been instilled in Kiyosaki's young mind from then on:

Financial skill is not taught in school but is learned at home and if parents are not financially literate, that is what is passed on to the children.Financial education is power.Exercising the mind and sharpening its knowledge on making money.Maintaining a mindset of a rich man notwithstanding financial setbacks.Not working for money but to work in order to learn and make money work to one's advantage.Confront the fear of money by thinking and not reacting emotionally.Accounting, made simple, is an important subject to learn in order to get rich.Importance of knowing the difference between assets (which one should acquire and have more of) and liabilitiesThis Rich Dad Poor Dad review has summed up the learnings that Kiyosaki has chronicled in his book and contends that Rich Dad Poor Dad is a useful manual for people struggling to understand how money works and how it can work to their advantage and ultimately, acquire money to live a financially successful life.

 


Global Warming Prevention - Kyoto Protocol Update

Global Warming Prevention

Global warming is something that we all have to take part in learning how to prevent, not only in the USA but throughout the entire world. We all play a part in contributing to global warming and the only way to help prevent the devastating affects is to work together. Each of the governments throughout the world are striving to develop a prevention plan that can help reduce the amount of emissions they are creating in the atmosphere and enhance what they are doing to contribute to the solution instead of the problem.

A U.S Climate Policy has been created to help citizens of the USA understand global warming and that there are actions which can be taken in order to make a difference. This policy consists of 3 different parts:

* Slowing the growth of emissions
* Strengthening the development of science and research studies
* Enhancing international cooperation

If we can take these policies and principles and put them into action we can begin to see results. This policy is only the beginning of what the government can and should be doing but it is a great start. The politicians within our government are working hard to stick to this policy and evaluate the industrial areas of our country to make sure they meet the requirements of the U.S Climate Policy.

Since the future generations are depending on us to make the choices to rectify this devastating situation, every little effort counts. Our individual efforts are especially significant in countries like the US and Canada, where individuals release 10,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per person every year. The largest source of greenhouse gases is electric power generation. The average home actually contributes more to global warming than the average car. This is because much of the energy we use in our homes comes from power plants which burn fossil fuel to power our electric products.

The United States has agreed in principle to work with more than 180 other nations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to bring about the stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous interference with the climate system. California, Florida, Hawaii, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington have all enacted laws or established policies setting global warming pollution reduction targets, while states in both the Northeast and West have signed agreements to achieve regional targets. Now the U.S. Congress is considering several bills that propose a variety of global warming emissions reduction targets.

The cost of the Kyoto Protocol is estimated to cost each of the developed countries involved billions of dollars. This is a financial responsibility each government should be willing to take in order to do what they can for the environment. Just when you go to the grocery store and find that organic foods are much more expensive than the regular foods; governments are finding that the cost to reduce greenhouse gases is far more than increasing them.

This one of the major problems our world as been having; it is far easier to create these gases than it is to reduce them and this is exactly what we have been doing for centuries. It is reassuring to see that the governments throughout the world are taking action but it is not nearly enough in order to stop the effects of global warming before they become devastating. Environmentalists and scientists are constantly working with government officials in order to come up with new, cost effective bills and legalities to reduce what they can of greenhouse gases.

 


Monetary Finances between the Poor and also the Rich

Money, money, money...

This is actually the cause of all that is material however the reason why man struggles so difficult. The value of money is so unstoppable now. It's so important though people always try to claim that it is not that so much important. The fact is so clear that money matters... a lot.

Around the world, money determines the status of a country in the international scene. The rich ones are of course- powerful. Those which are poor are usually the topic of oppression and discrimination. Even inside a country, there is a big deal between rich families and the masses. Sad to say, the gap is really big. We could claim that equality exists but there are so many obvious reasons telling us that it does not. How come many remain on the street begging for alms when many just spend to waste their savings?

Money is the cause of imbalance. The earth has in it a promise of equality but it seems strange. Third world countries have trying times to finance all their affairs especially education and health aspects are neglected. For other rich countries, people live with comfort and the value of their bit of coin is as much as the value of the third world's 12 hours.

This uneven distribution of wealth and finances greatly affect all. Some countries could finance big and expensive events for a night. It may include welcoming a lot of guests and showing off the riches of the place. For the poorest, their government could barely prioritize their basic needs over military equipment. Statistically, there are an overwhelming number of hungry people especially children. This is not overwhelming but a kick on our hearts.

Countries are creating a community of amity. They share what they have while others seek the help they needed. Why some countries' finance not suffices their people's mere existence? This is the saddest question to answer. Why? It is because the answer is still unknown.

However, poor countries do not seem to find means to escape the pity of big countries. They simply live with donations. Low financial capacity is usually coupled with blaming the society for all the misfortune. The point we want to stress out is, let us not let personal inadequacies to vanish into thin air. Does a poor country shoot for its personal wealth? Let us say not necessarily finances.

There is a lot of wealth around us. They are available in beautiful forms but we just think money conquers all.

 


Revolution in Ukraine

Revolution in Ukraine
The events which are developed in Ukraine, of course, can't but please honest Marxists (I repent of having delayed writing about this so long).
However, we see that the position of Russian communists (at least official communists) on these events is openly treacherous, openly holding with Russian imperialism and its neocolonial puppet Yanukovich. Although it would be naive to expect another reaction from them, but it is outrageous how openly them hold with Kremlin.
For example, the "left" site Rabkor.ru portrays Ukrainian protesters as "fascists" and calls for collaboration with "Berkut" [Ukrainian special police forces] in the struggle against protesters. To support Ukrainian protesters, Rabkor's scribblers say, is as good as to support radical Islamists. We see that for Rabkor.ru, which is as far from proletariat as the sky far from the earth, internationalist position of alliance with radical Islamists is something extraordinary, which can be used as scarecrow, but at the same time the collaboration with "Berkut" is normal thing.
Here it is necessary to mention the demolition of Lenin's monument by Ukrainian protesters. Russian mass media bawl with one accord: "Vandals!", although the same mass media called Lenin as "German spy", "pederast" - what abusive labels have them not pinned on them!
I remind reader that Lenin, as the founder of Islam Mohammed, was ardent enemy of idolatry. "We want people to read us, not to worship us" - he said. But Stalin and Russian imperialism make the idol from Lenin, turning Leninism into religion. This monument was built under Stalin and in fact is the symbol of domination of Russian imperialism over Ukrainian people, not the symbol of Leninism (Lenin, such ardent enemy of god-building, himself would break such monuments with hammer).
As I know, there were Lenin's words on that monument: "Only in alliance with Russian proletariat independent Ukraine is possible". The words which were true in the old days (notice, that Lenin said "in alliance with Russian proletariat", not "in alliance with Russian state"), later, at the time when Stalinists built that monument, became false. Indeed, Russia was transformed from proletarian state to bourgeois one, Russian proletariat was transformed to labor aristocracy in general, and the centre of world revolution shifted from Russia to East, today - to Muslim countries. So, those words as applied to the present period should be the following: "Only in alliance with Muslim proletariat (i.e. with radical Islamists) independent Ukraine is possible".
Indeed, owing to its relative fewness (45 millions people is much but not very much in comparison with Russia or Germany, even more so in comparison with USA, China, India etc.), Ukraine naturally will be the prey for imperialist predators - first of all for Russia and Europe, until world imperialist system as a whole broken. And for this breaking fraternal alliance with oppressed Muslim peoples, which are about 1.5 billions, is necessary. And, by the way, the phrases of Russian mass media that protesters aim at entering into European Union are the lie: no, they rather not aim at entering into European Union, but oppose the regime of Kremlin's puppet Yanukovich, and his refusal (by evident order of Kremlin) to sign a treaty with European Union, which he promised to sign at first, was only "casus belli", only "the last straw", which exhausted patience of Ukrainian people. Even bourgeois analysts if they not bought by Kremlin totally, acknowledge this fact. And between the leaders of opposition, who advocate the entering into European Union, on the one hand, and the masses of protesters, on the other hand, there is serious gap - the fact which is acknowledged even by lying Russian mass media. For example, the masses almost tore to tatters Klichko for his appeals to refuse revolutionary violence. The masses went farther than liberal, "European-like civilized" leaders, who are inclined to compromises with authorities.
As we see, our forecast, which we predicted three years ago (see my article "Revolution in the Middle East"), begin to be realized: the spark which was stricken by Tunisian and Egyptian proletariat develops into the flame, changing the world for the better bit by bit (not so quickly as we want: unfortunately, it is impossible for us to quicken the action of objective laws of history. We shall go on working, without unnecessary hurry). What takes place in Ukraine today is the beginning of revolution in Russia (even if revolution in Russia will occur after long time), because Russian imperialism holds its domination over its "own", Russian, proletariat thanks to colonial oppression. And official communists show themselves to be on the side of fascist Putin's regime and its puppet Yanukovich in this struggle.
