  • The global environment that charac- terises the business world highlights the importance of developing strate- gies that go beyond the geographical boundaries of one country. Wage-rate differentials, expanding foreign mar- kets and improved transportation break down barriers of time and space between countries and force the logistics function to take on a global dimension. Global logistics is the response to the increasing integration of international markets as firms try to remain competitive.

Beginning in 2014, the earnings threshold will be indexed to the consumer price index for urban workers (CPI-U). The legislation’s penalties apply to certain employers, as well as to individual people who do not obtain coverage. In particular, a company with at least 50 full-time employees that does not offer insurance could be subject to penalties.

  • The sensory networks that transduce information starting with the capture of a photon into a suite of downstream responses are well known. Historically these pigments were postulated to control various aspects of plant growth and development, particularly germination, phototropic movements and the transition between vegetative and reproductive growth. Long before the genes and proteins were identified and characterized, a tremendous body of work produced evidence of their activities and effects on physiology. Light quality effects on germination were examined by Lewis H.

  • To better understand the international perspective of public policies for the elderly, in line with the parameters that serve as tendencies for national policies, one must contextualize international health conferences that had health promotion as their central topic. Since the Declaration of Alma-Ata, in 1978(5), it has been noted that measures and characteristics of health promotion imply a search for healthier life styles and active aging. Health promotion is seen as a process of community qualification, aiming to improve life and health conditions.

  • More important is the scatter plot of data points, each representing a microfinance institution. Many points are above the threshold for profitability, and many are on the left of the graph, indicating low reliance on soft (subsidized) funds. This is the hope of commercial microfinance. But note too that an ample number of institutions are above the threshold and to the right, funded by social investors of various stripes. The solid circles represent institutions with for-profit status, while the empty circles are non-profits.

  • Finally, and perhaps most crucial from a strategic viewpoint, profits produce a short-term managerial focus. Rising earnings can easily disguise a decline in shareholder value because earnings ignore the future implications of current activities. For example, earnings can quickly be boosted by cutting advertising or customer service levels. In the short run this is beneficial, but in the long run it will erode the company’s market share, future earnings and shareholder value.

  • Facing the rapidly changing global business and different cross-country customer cultures, luxury can be understood as a special transnational type of culture. It represents a system of tangible (clothing, cars, buildings, etc.), as well as intangible components comprising ideals, expected behaviors, and beliefs in a group specific value system. In a global marketplace, there is no understanding of luxury conceivable which is nationally or regionally bound. However, it has to be stated that to some extent ethnocentrism and ―country-of-origin‖ effects may interfere.
