Buying Fabric – Best Time to Shop For Fabric

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

It is not uncommon for everyone to rush in for shopping during holiday periods, such as Christmas and other end of season clearance sales. And buying fabric is no exception.

Quite often just before major holidays you can find pretty low prices and up to 70% off discounts on variety of fabrics as manufactures and wholesalers try to clear out their stock to make room for new fashion seasons at the beginning of the year. This is definitely the best time to hunt for excellent deals and save a lot of money on expensive fabric.

Having work in a top fashion company in the country, I can tell you right now, that apart from holiday sales, going to private designer’s fabric sales is a much better bargain. Mainly because fashion designers often pre-order a lot of high quality fabric for their initial sampling stage. But as quite often they end up not using as much fabric as they buy from travel trips, those left over are usually put away for an year or so (until the new range using those fabric are sold to the public) before they go onto designer’s fabric sale.

The sale periods for these beautiful fabrics are not fixed, as they all depend on each individual designer. But quite often you can expect them to be around October and April – because during these times fashion collections are close to their end for Winter and Summer seasons respectively. Many companies also need the extra capital gained from fabric sale to both meet their cash flow requirements with the bank and the same time to clear out the stock to make room for new season fabrics.

So the next time you need to shop for fabric, it might pay to be a little bit patient and see if there are any sales coming soon. This kind of event usually happen on word of mouth basis, so asking around your friends and neighborhood is the best bet to finding good deals on clothing fabric.

Organizing a face-to-face meeting can be quite time-consuming and difficult, especially if the participants are spread out over a wide geological area. So, to simplify matters, it can benefit to organize an audio conference, which is appreciated for its ability to save on things like cost, time and even carbon emissions. Here are a few of the most appealing group conferencing systems:

Speakerphone

The original speakerphone formed part of the traditional desktop telephone. It is limited in features and unlikely to include any echo cancellation capability while also only having a single microphone. This type of system is most practical for use by one or two people who are sitting relatively close to the phone. The sound quality when several people are speaking at once is quite poor, which can have a negative impact on productivity.

Conference phone

The conference phone is a standalone unit that is designed to work in an open-air environment and may feature one or more extension microphones. This type of phone system is used for supporting a conversation of multiple participants. Even though the conference phones are quite simple to use, the latest phones in the market are very sophisticated and complex tools.

Most of the high-end conference phones are built with technology like echo cancellation and digital signal processing technology to make sure the conversation is clear for all participants, while working to eliminate background noise, such as overhead fans, computers and side conversations.

Installed audio conferencing system

The installed audio system is built with individual components that make it possible to get the clearest phone conversation possible. The separate parts of the system are placed in different areas of the boardroom to maximize the experience. Plus, each part of the conferencing system has its own controls. This makes it possible to easily maximize the audio output by adjusting the speaker outputs and microphone gain levels.

This type of system is great for the larger rooms because it includes digital processing capabilities that can overcome most noise problems, with technology like multiple echo cancel mixes. Plus, it is even possible to connect the installed system to the latest video conferencing equipment for the more all-inclusive session.

Once the right type of conference phone has been found, it is possible to benefit in many different ways. For instance, one of the obvious benefits is the ability to reduce costs by eliminating travel, hotel fees, gasoline, etc. While it does cost to invest in one of the high-end and feature-rich conference phones this is certain to be a lot less than the expense of having several participants travel to a single location for a face-to-face meeting. Other benefits including the ability to save time, improve sound quality, ease of use, and improve group interaction.

There are even several forms of organizations both from the government and private sectors that support the campaign against any type of life-threatening diseases. Most of these organizations believe that the best way to stay away from the harmful effects of diseases is to maintain a physically fit body.

Several sensible suggestions were also made by other concerned citizens regarding with this matter.

Almost all individuals nowadays are very much aware of its negative effects towards their lives. The most horrifying factor about cancer is that, even the medical experts are not yet sure of its exact treatment.

As of the moment the only way to get rid of cancer is through the use of radiation specifically prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the most complicated strains of cancer according to medical experts. This type of cancer originated from the prostate glands of male patients. The prostate gland is the one responsible in secreting the hormones needed by the body.

Prostate cancer is relatively difficult to cure because of the area where it is located. The worst thing about this type of cancer is that is does not have any early symptoms to warn its patients. Its symptoms will only occur during its advanced stages wherein the harmful cancer cells have already managed to affect the other organs of your body. Another problem with prostate cancer is that it is difficult to diagnose because of its nature since there are several forms of diseases that has something to do with the prostate glands.

Since the prostate gland is located between the urethra and the bladder of the patient, it would be really difficult to locate the area where cancer has also managed to penetrate. The tendency of prostate cancer to multiply and affect the other portions of the body is highly possible to happen. The best way to deal with this type of problem is to use radiation.

Radiation has been popularly used in treating different types of cancer. Although it has some side effects that could be harmful for the patients, it still recommended by several doctors. The best thing about radiation is that the surgeon can control the amount of radiation that he or she is going to use during the surgery. It would be nice for the patient because it also means that the other organs of the body will not be damaged during the treatment of prostate cancer.

Drinking Water, Hemorrhoids and Alcohol Consumption

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

There is a lot to be shared about the connection between drinking water, hemorrhoids (piles) and excessive alcohol consumption. The news media, health blogs and healthy living magazines constantly remind people to drink more water for better health.

We all know water is better for us than soda, sugary drinks and all the other liquids most people prefer to drink than simple water. But we all have cravings. I used to drink lots of soda thinking I was getting enough water from it.

These same health sources also warn that excessive alcohol consumption and hemorrhoids are a painful reality for many heavy drinkers. Piles are inflamed anal veins that grow into small or large masses inside or outside of the anus.

They are commonly known as internal or external hemorrhoids or external piles and internal piles. Hemorrhoid symptoms are chronic itching in and around the rectal cavity. They also cause a stinging burning pain that makes walking or even sitting extremely painful. Severe inflammation of anus veins can cause bleeding from the anal region that can be scary.

Let’s look at drinking water, excessive alcohol consumption and hemorrhoids a little more closely.

Drinking Water and Hemorrhoids

Water is absolutely essential in digestion, absorption of nutrients and bodily waste elimination through urination and bowel movements. Health experts recommend as a general rule of thumb to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day. If you’re exercising or losing bodily fluids more rapidly you’ll need to drink more, but the “8 x 8” rule is a good to gauge follow.

Drinking water helps prevent chronic constipation, which can play a big role in developing piles. Straining when passing bowel movements can lead to blood swollen veins around the anal region. When a person’s body is not properly hydrated from drinking enough water constipation can happen that causes painful piles to develop internally or externally.

Dehydration is significant contributor to hemorrhoids. Drinking plenty of water can greatly reduce the risk of getting this condition that effects millions of people yearly. It can be caused by digestive problems due to poor body hydration. You would be amazed at how many cases could be prevented using the “8×8” rule.

Chronic diarrhea is another major cause of piles forming. Diarrhea’s spastic motion adds a tremendous amount of unhealthy pressure to the anus that can cause straining like with constipation. Strong spastic pressure on the anus that can also cause anal fissures besides inflamed anal veins.

When people do develop hemorrhoids their doctors always tell them to drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins while keeping their digestive system healthy to prevent a future outbreak.

If you don’t like the taste of tap water or want to live eco-friendly avoiding bottled water invest in an affordable water purifier for the kitchen faucet.

As a former hemorrhoid sufferer who went through laser surgery in Los Angeles I make sure I drink plenty of water daily. Hydrate to beat them!

Excessive Alcohol Consumption and Hemorrhoids

By no means am I telling people not to drink. I enjoy one glass of red wine with dinner most nights. My doctor told me it was good for my heart in moderation. If I’m at a dinner party it’s not uncommon for me to have two or three glasses of red wine while enjoying good company.

When I go fishing or camping with family and friends I enjoy more than a few bottles of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. As I’ve got older in life I’ve learned my drinking limits and no when to not push it to excessive alcohol consumption.

Where excessive alcohol consumption and hemorrhoids becomes a dangerous mix is when it comes to heavy or binge drinking. College was my first experience with excessive alcohol consumption and piles. I wasn’t drinking enough water or eating right. My sophomore year I developed a very small external hemorrhoid.

It still hurt like an itchy fiery bee sting and I was embarrassed to tell my friends. My parents took me to a doctor who prescribed me a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) to treat it and eliminate it. The growth was very small and was caught early, so it could be treated without surgery or banding. There are other many excellent hemorrhoidal products you can buy online for hemorrhoid relief and treatment.

Alcohol dehydrates the body badly and robs it of precious vitamins. Most people when they drink alcohol skip drinking water in between alcoholic beverages and don’t take a vitamin for a day or night of drinking.

Heavy drinkers have a higher risk of getting this rectal condition because of alcohol dehydration and lack of vitamins in their bodies. It’s recommended to take a multivitamin 4 hours before drinking alcohol. When you drink alcohol make sure to take your vitamins.

Drinking too much alcohol can cause severe constipation and small, dry stools that are tough to pass during bowel movements. The strain and pressure to pass a bowel movement makes the veins in and around the anus inflamed. This is a major factor to internal and external piles developing.

People that consume alcohol excessively will commonly experience digestive and bowel movement problems. This is because alcohol in any common form (beer, wine, whiskey etc.) acts as a diuretic that will dehydrate the alcohol drinker.

A person who is dehydrated normally experiences constipation and is forced to severely strain when passing bowel movements. Binge drinking can also lead to highly elevated blood pressure, which in turn increases the pressure to delicate veins in and around the anus.

The important thing is to drink water even when you’re drinking alcohol to stay well hydrated. Dehydration, constipation and diarrhea contribute heavily to hemorrhoid risk or can make a current hemorrhoid condition worse. Water is your friend when it comes to hemorrhoids. Excessive alcohol consumption and hemorrhoids are two things to avoid if you can.

From Offline to Online Business in Today’s Globalized Business World

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the fast pace of technological changes and the global economy have resulted in hypercompetition as the nature of today’s competitive landscape. In the recent years, regarding the popularity of E-businesses, multifarious online businesses have been found because of the comparatively low barriers to entry and a tremendous number of entrepreneurs have found the nerve to conduct their entire businesses online. According to the Internet World Stats website, approximately 1/3 of the world’s population is using the Internet and the number of users is rising steeply. Many companies struggle to survive in highly competitive market by making use of the Internet as the intensification of competition and the undergoing process of globalization have led to high utilization of the Internet as a supplementary business tool.

As Prof. Michael E. Porter, who is well-known for his strategic system, mentioned in an article, titled “Strategy and the Internet” (in 2001), the Internet should be viewed as a complement to conventional method of competing. In spite of the fact that utilization of the Internet should be considered as a blessing in disguise, it can turn out to be an unmitigated disaster. Since there is a relative lack of reliable market signal and because of the distorted market behavior, the online market should be interpreted carefully to set strategic goals.

The Internet as the Most Powerful Business Weapon

After the Industrial Revolution Period (the 18th, 19th centuries), there has been a marked shift from “mass production” to “mass customization” for the past decades and the Internet eased the process of customization.

In terms of marketing, the process of online data collection (quantitative and qualitative data) is less complex and measuring customer satisfaction can be easily done by conducting online opinion polls and surveys. In other words, the Internet provides marketers with a comparatively easier way to identify customer needs and enhance customer satisfaction. With regard to the online analytic tools, identifying the needs, wants, demands (core concepts of marketing), and targeting the markets are relatively easier on the Internet. In addition, Advertising on the Internet is rather cheaper in comparison with offline advertising.

The emergence of social networking services (SNS) as a sophisticated business tool on the Net and the evolution of Internet marketing, coupled with social media marketing, never cease to amaze researchers. Thanks to the Internet, employees and customers (users) can be in touch instantly anytime, with anyone, anywhere. The Internet can be explained as worldwide network that enables computers to share different information with each other as well as sharing databases, transaction resources, and communications. By utilization of the Internet in organizations the red tape is cut and stratified bureaucracy is reduced to make everyone accessible within organization.

On the one hand, the Internet lowers entry barriers, which is highly desirable to set up a business, as there is no need for huge capital investment and sales forces. On the other hand, the Internet paves the other companies’ ways to penetrate into the market which leads to increasing the threats of substitutes. As a result, by maximizing and minimizing the switching costs of buyers and suppliers, the Internet changes the bargaining powers of buyers and suppliers. There are some characteristic of E-commerce, which is a subset of E-business, such as ubiquity, global reach, richness, personalization, and customization that make it clearly distinguishable from traditional commerce. Moreover, the Internet, which influences strategic positioning (E.Porter, 2001), can be used to achieve competitive advantages.

There are several advantages such as connectivity, convenience, standardization, lower costs, highly customizable services, and speed that are brought by the Internet to the Organizations. By making comparisons, it can be readily understood that how the Internet has impact on industry structure and it is crystal clear that the advantages outweigh the drawbacks. That is why an overwhelming majority of organizations are going online and there are so many that conduct their entire businesses on the Internet.

To conclude, in the light of popularity of digital goods and digital market, it is reasonable to assume that the Internet can be regarded as the most powerful business weapon in today’s business world.
