I have gotten a pretty nice promotion at my work, although in truth it is not something for which I have any real training. I got it because the guy who used to have the job is married to a woman who has a much better career than he does. She got sent to New York City and the increase in her pay was massive, so he just walked away from this job. I am sort of in charge of procurement, so I have to figure out how to get hold of custom rubber seals for the hydraulics components that we build here. Continue reading
It is going to be a pretty big challenge, but the company has decided that it is time for us to build our own server room and servers. That is not something you do lightly, but so far we have not been able to find a vendor who can satisfy us. Right now I am trying to figure out how to get the best deal on a couple of custom power distribution unit designs that are going to be able to give us the factors we are looking for. In this case we are looking to be able to manage the energy costs, to have a reliable supply of power and something which is not going to be too extreme when it comes to cooling factors. It is not an easy task to figure out how to get all of the stuff you need and still make it work with the budget that you have been given. Continue reading
As a landlord with a lot of apartments for rent, I wanted a solution to keep them filled with occupants year round. I never want a place to be without a tenant more than a week. If someone moves out, we are in their cleaning, painting and remodeling the next day. I had a crew gut an apartment to the bare walls and redo everything inside in less than a week. It was leased by the following Monday. I use a service for marketing for apartments that helps me keep them occupied.

If you make a product, you need to put it in a package. If it is any sort of food product, you need to make sure it arrives to the consumer safe, fresh and intact. Then it has to last in their homes whether it is a refrigerated product or not. Sounds daunting and it is. Packaging can be expensive to the point of approaching the ridiculous. For our cereal products we use VFFS packaging machines. That stands for Vertical Form Fill Seal. A continuous roll of film is rolled over on itself and sealed to form a tube, The tube is then sealed across to form the base of a bag, the product is dropped in, a top seal is formed and then it is repeated.
Your potato chips and pretty much every other bagged product is likely filled in this manner. Continue reading
For the average Australian, shopping for income protection insurance can be somewhat overwhelming. Most policies have a variety of options and different levels of coverage, along with the fact that many of the insurance terms might be hard to understand. One feature of income protection insurance that is important to consider is redundancy protection.
