Mlb-from A Sport To An Industry

For the longest time Major League Baseball did not take itself seriously when it came to marketing. They did not realize what a cash cow they had on their hands. In fact for the longest time they would outsource and have others make their products. They would take a percentage of the sale.

This seemed good for Major League Baseball except that many times inferior products would get in the marketplace carrying their name. This hurt sales of MLB products and Major League Baseball knew something had to be done.

Major League Baseball is one of the most popular sports, but knew they had an untapped industry they were sitting on. The problem they had was how to best go about it. Major League Baseball decided that the best way was to market their own product and give it their own name. People would buy products that were approved by Major League Baseball much quicker than something that was not.

Once Major League Baseball started put their own logos on their products a new industry was created. MLB went from a sport to an industry virtually in no time at all. People wanted these official products from Major League Baseball from caps to shirts and everything in-between. If it had the Major League Logo on it people wanted it. Baseball had hit a home run and they knew it.

Merchandise sales continue to rise even today. Major League Baseball understands that the game of baseball is still the main attraction, but the industry they have created must also be maintained. MLB does not endorse every product that comes along who wants to use their logo. There is a process that you must go through to be approved.

If you do become a part of the Major League Baseball merchandise family you will see consistent sales from it. Baseball is the National pastime and that will not change anytime soon. Cheering for your favorite baseball team means you will need some merchandise and MLB is happy to give it to you. MLB when from a sport to an industry and they have no plans to turn back right now.

How to Become a Leading Edge Entrepreneur

Intuition in business is a fairly unexplored field but one which more and more young, forward-thinking business owners are discovering as a means to help them achieve what they want to professionally, more quickly and with more ease, understanding and determination to succeed. Theirs is a generation that is saying goodbye to the effort filled days of martyrdom and hello to the economy of personal and physical resources as well as time.

But what does this really mean? It means that there is a movement of entrepreneurs at the cutting edge of their desired fields, who with a unique blend of self awareness, business smarts and support networks are blowing through the old barriers and definitions of what it was previously agreed was required in order to succeed.

Their novel approach to themselves, their unique offerings to the world and their progression up the self employment ladder in large part has granted us the permission to carve out our own niches, pathways and rules in the quest for the personal and financial freedom that we are each more free than ever before to seek. Having moved away from the notion of being a 9-5 employee fulfilling someone else’s dream, they are the artists, creators, musicians, tailors, designers and architects and other professionals among us who are re-writing the rules on how to achieve success on one’s own terms, in our own time and space.

Of course this does not mean that sound advice and business practice no longer apply. On the contrary, it means that they have taken the best that the business world has to offer…the tried and true laws of success BUT they have combined those with a heightened sense of self awareness and understanding of what drives them at their most personal and fundamental levels. In so doing, they have given themselves permission to chart their success in their own way. And this is important…they have been able to run a thick and definite line between success according to someone else’s perspective and that in their own true and heartfelt view.

And this is the new breed of business men and women who have been emerging from seemingly no where. They have honed in on the veritable gaps in the market that have been begging to be filled with service providers at the top of their game…to raise the bar on the offerings of what a particular industry can offer. They have instinctively realized that it is a refined sense of self awareness which sets them apart from their competition and they have begun utilizing the services of professional intuitives to help them stay on track with their sometimes hidden or unspoken desires and goals.

These renegade business owners are the ones who we say are ‘on fire!’. Indeed it is no wonder that their businesses seem untouchable. And isn’t this how it should be? Everywhere you look, life is constantly shifting or being transmuted from one form to another. When last did you pick up a book on business or economics that really took the human element into account. These new businesses are constantly changing, moving and evolving to meet the ever changing needs of their owners and their target markets. It seems, therein lies the secret of success…we cannot be considered truly successful if we are not fulfilled in every area of our lives.

These leading edge entrepreneurs have some how made their way into the less well understood and written about realms of the unknown. Yet they have discovered in this place that personal integration, expression and contentment in our daily work yields untold benefits, not just for their businesses but also raises the quality of the offering to the people that they serve.

To Hit the Golf Ball Better and Higher – Consider Reducing the Loft of Your Golf Clubs

At first sight this may seem to be a strange paradox; after all, in order to hit the ball higher the obvious thing to do outside of changing the golf swing would be to increase the loft, not decrease it. This may be the accepted wisdom of “usual” golf advice, but is it necessarily correct?
 
Let me explain.
 
When set correctly in preparation to strike the golf ball, the leading edge of all irons sits off the ground; the extent to which it does depends on the club, with the leading edge of the more lofted clubs sitting more off the ground than those with less loft.
 
The amount by which the leading edge is off the ground is the sole angle of the golf club, commonly known as “bounce”, so the sand wedge, for example, will have more bounce than, say, a six iron. As a comparison, the former may have 12 degrees of bounce against 5 degrees with the latter.
 
Wedges – particularly sand wedges – tend to be a law unto themselves and are, therefore, outside the scope of this article which focuses on the rest of the irons.
 
There may be a number of reasons for failing to get the ball airborne – de-lofting the club at impact for example – but one of the main causes is hitting the ball “thin”.
 
Everyone has at some point in their golfing life thinned a shot so badly that it skids along the ground, sending an unpleasant wave of stinging vibration up the shaft and into the hands; but does anyone ever really consider what a thin shot is? It may seem obvious but I shall say it anyway, and that is that a thinned shot occurs when the golfer strikes the ball with the leading edge of the club.
 
Interestingly enough, many golfers that are prone to thinning their shots will instinctively de-loft the club to avoid the “leading-edge strike”, only to find that they still fail to get the desired ball-flight for reasons that are self-evident.
 
The “stinging” shot described above is, of course, an obvious example of hitting the ball thin, but what about the times when the vibration is not there, the golfer has not de-lofted the club but the flight of the ball is still lower than expected? This is still likely to be a consequence of “not getting all of the ball” which is what a marginally thinned shot is.
 
The ultimate aim is to strike the ball with the “sweet-spot” of the club because by doing so the golfer will achieve the optimum ball-flight, direction and distance assuming all other things – such as swing path, for example – are equal. The location of the sweet-spot may vary slightly from one set of irons to another but as a general rule is situated marginally towards the heel of the club and a little below halfway up the face; the sweet spot is never on the leading edge!
 
Taking all of the above into account, it may help to form a picture in our minds of the position of the leading edge of the club relative to the ball at the precise moment of impact of a slightly thinned shot. Having done so, mentally “freeze” the club in that position (with the leading edge just touching the bottom of the ball) and then, whilst it is there, bend the leading edge downwards so that it and the ball are no longer in contact. Having now moved the leading edge “out of the way”, re-start the golf club to complete the strike and you should “see” that it is now the club-face that hits the ball.
 
It follows, therefore, that for someone who is prone to thinning the ball and as a consequence fails to get it airborne, moving the leading edge “out of the way” by bending it downwards could help them to get the club face on the ball, thereby taking advantage of the available loft.
 
As with many things connected with golf club specification, however, the inter-relationship which exists between all aspects of the club means that moving the leading edge “out of the way” will impact on something else and in this case it is the loft. Bending the leading edge downwards – thereby reducing the distance between it and the ground (the sole angle or bounce) – will reduce the loft. Looking at it another way, reducing the loft of the club could help the “perpetual thinner” by getting the leading edge “out of the way” at the moment of impact. In any event, the effect on the loft is not great, given that a one degree reduction in bounce roughly equates to the same reduction in loft. Putting this into context, a seven iron, say, has a loft of around thirty-five degrees with about six degrees of bounce. Reducing the bounce by one degree (and I would not recommend much more – two degrees at a push, perhaps) will result in a new loft angle of thirty-four degrees.
 
In the right circumstances the trade-off is more than worth it because the better quality of strike can be such that the golfer’s game can improve beyond recognition without the need to change the golf swing.

Buick Used Cars- A Quick Look At The Rendezvous

Buick used cars like the Rendezvous was a new entry into the SUV crossover market back in 2002. To be honest with you, this vehicle looks like every other SUV crossover from GMs other brands. This is why General Motors really screwed up and got itself into so much financial trouble. It was basically developing the same vehicles, in the same market segment, with the same look and design, but with a different brand stamp on the hood of the vehicle. Im mean really, is there any differences when you look at the Pontiac Aztek compared to the Buick Rendezvous. So for all intensive purposes, I will not write about the Aztek because it shares a lot of the same features and platforms as the Rendezvous does-lol.

Buick Rendezvous used cars:

Rendezvous’ base model provides seating for five people; it also has an option to fit as many as seven people, which comes standard with its top model, but would be an extra in its base model. It also has an option for captains chairs as well. I found the interior to be very blah and its exterior looks as if it was a smaller version of a station wagon but beefed up on steroids; it has a real weird look to it.

The Buick Rendezvous has several different engines in its various model types. The base model had a V6, 3.4-litre engine, with 185 horsepower. Later models for its best version got an upgrade to a V6, 3.6-litre, 245 horsepower engine. All base model Rendezvous came with two-wheel drive, its top model came standard with an allwheel drive transmission.

I only found one statistic on the Rendezvous fuel economy. It basically gives and average for all models in which it ranges from 12.3-Litres to 13.7-litres, per 100km, for city driving and 7.8-litres to 9.3-litres, per 100km, for highway driving.

Lets take a look at some of the pros and cons when looking to buy a Buick Rendezvous as used vehicle.

1- There are issues with the transmission
2- There are problems with the air condition leaking.
3- There are problems with the braking sensors
4- It received a 3 star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety organization for a crash test done to it, for passenger and driver protection.

This is a vehicle I recommend staying away from; there are just too many issues with it.

If youre Canadian and looking to find great savings in Buick used cars , then please check out YouPaidWhat.ca, they provide Canadians with an alternative option in buying American used cars for sale. With the Canadian dollar being so high, American Buick Rendezvous used cars are much cheaper than ones sold in Canada.

High Purity Common Salt – CSIR – CSMCRI Technology

High Purity Common Salt

Recently I visited CSIR technofest 2010 showcased by Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, New Delhi, at India International Trade Fair in New Delhi, the Capital of India.  In this technofest, I have seen a technology “High Purity Common Salt” from Brines in Solar Salt Pans which was developed by CSMCRI (Central Salt & Marine Chemicals Research Institute, Bhavnagar under the aegis of CSIR, New Delhi, India.

We use common salt or sodium chloride or NaCl for our essential diet and in all our cooking purposes. Common salt is a basic raw material for the manufacture of a wide variety of industrial chemicals viz. sodium carbonate (soda ash), sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) and chlorine.  Salt is also used in textile, dairy, dyeing, food, fertilizer, leather, paper and pharmaceutical industries.

Solar salt is produced using sea brine, sub-soil brine and lake brine. Salt produced from such brines is contaminated with impurities such as Ca2+, Mg2+, SO42- and heavy metals.  Salt is not pure white like purified iodine salt. Soda ash, caustic soda and others have to purify the salt before they use to their purpose and this causes pollution also.  The need here is purify salt for required ratios to industrial applications in brine itself by using some chemicals. It is cost effective and without pollution to environment.

Absolute purity of the salt as well as the ratio of Ca to Mg are important, from sea- and sub-soil brines. Sea/subsoil brine as the case may be is concentrated to 24 0Be’ in specially designed solar pans. The concentrated brine is clarified with suitable agents and the clarified brine is allowed to enter the salt crystallizing pans preventing the insoluble fine gypsum particles and earthen impurities from entering the crystallizers along with the brine. There after the pH of the brine is adjusted to an optimum value. The salt crystallized between 25 0Be’ and 28.5 0Be’ is harvested and heap washed. The heap washed salt is found to be of high purity with ideal Ca to Mg ratio suitable for chlor-alkali manufacture. The process is based on the modification of salt crystal morphology during salt crystallization from concentrated brines in the solar pans through controlled nucleation which, in turn, is achieved by preventing the suspended gypsum particles and insoluble impurities from entering the crystallizers along with concentrated brine. The salt crystals were made defect free minimizing the chance of entrapment of impurities ensuring the production of high purity solar salt.  

The present technology offers a cost-effective process for preparation of high purity common salt having highly reduced levels of the above impurities and with Ca to Mg ratio (w/w) in the range of 2-3 ideal for chlor-alkali, soda ash and other industries where common salt is a basic raw material.

Cost per one tonne comes about >Rs.10 in Gujarat and >Rs.50 in Rajasthan.  The product has been tested by various chlor-alkali and soda ash manufacturers and has been certified to be ideal for its industrial applications.

Solar salt producers across any country, chlor-alkali and soda ash manufacturers and all other industrial units where high purity solar salt is the basic raw material will be highly benefited through the implementation of this technology.

The Warrior Diet – 4 Steps to Help You Succeed

Are you familiar with the Warrior Diet? It’s still relatively new, but it’s quickly gaining in popularity. If you’ve never heard of it before, let me get you up to speed.

Most diets tell you to eat many small meals spaced out during your day. I guess this one wanted to be different. Going against all logical dieting guidelines, this diet is based on the concept of under-eating and over-eating. It’s fine if this sounds crazy to you. I have to admit that I was skeptical too when I first came across it. Before you totally dismiss the whole idea, I would like to share four steps that will help you succeed with the Warrior Diet.

The first step has to do with your mindset. This actually holds true for every single diet out there, and there are way too many to name. To lose weight easily and effectively, you have to make it one of your primary goals. Losing weight for your own personal reasons is always better than trying to do it for someone else.

The majority of people start eating healthy and exercising in order to please others. Some train with the intention of attracting a potential mate, while others do it because getting compliments on their appearance gives them an ego boost. Neither one of these situations work very well for long-term success. Sticking to a diet and exercise program is much easier when you decide to do it for yourself, and forget everyone else.

The second step to making this diet a success is eating your biggest meal at night. This one is tough to get used to for some people because it goes against everything you’ve been told to do before. Having either three large meals per day or six smaller ones are the most common eating schedules.

I hate to say it, but this diet will not work for you if you skip this important step. By skipping the big breakfast and lunch, and having your largest meal in the evening, you will become leaner and stronger. The best news is that you can see and feel these benefits without having to alter the number of calories that you consume.

The third success step has to do with the foods you decide to put into your body. If you constantly eat whatever you feel like eating, you will be very disappointed with your results. This isn’t exclusive for the Warrior Diet. It applies to every single diet out there. Fast food is what you should pay the most attention to.

Eating fast food on a regular basis does absolutely nothing to help you lose weight. It is very high in fat, and the majority of the calories are empty (do not provide nutritional value for your body). Stick to the healthy stuff instead: fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, eggs, fish, and low-fat dairy products. These foods are much better for you because they contain calories that can actually be used for energy.

The fourth and final step deals with the time of day you decide to exercise. To achieve the best possible results, make sure you exercise during the under-eating phase. You might be thinking that doing this will make you weak, but combining exercise with under-eating actually helps you resist fatigue.

Let’s go over the steps one more time. First, you have to make up your own mind about wanting to lose weight. Second, make sure to eat your biggest meal in the evening. Third, keep an eye on what you eat. Fourth, try to exercise during the under-eating phase. I hope you found these tips helpful, and that they point you toward success with the Warrior Diet.

Woman Are Never Wrong, Men Are Always Right

There is a lot of information out there on diversity in the workplace. The latest rage of course has been discussion about the three-generation workplace. However, an area of diversity that I find has been overlooked in recent years is one that definitely affects us all; the gender gap. Anyone who is married can attest to the fact that men and women are entirely different species, or as relationship expert John Gray put it, they are from completely different planets.

The differences between men and women go way beyond the physical to include things like core beliefs and value systems. In fact, the underlying values of men and women largely contribute to the differences in how we communicate, solve problems, and manage stress. These differences often lead to assumptions and judgments by the opposite sex, which ends up leading to friction at work. A little awareness about these subtle differences can go a long way in reducing workplace stress, and building a respectful unified team.

Values are behind it all.

If you can remember this simple truth about values, it will go a long way in helping you understand the opposite gender’s motivations and actions. Most men primarily value results, the bottom line and achievement. Most women primarily value the quality of their relationships and working environment.

A few years ago, the New York Yankees won the baseball championship despite some heavy infighting on the team. Most men would agree that they had a successful season. After all, that is why we play baseball. Women on the other hand would probably judge the season differently. If a woman’s baseball team had won a championship and yet the year was filled with relational strife, they would be more inclined to view the year with very mixed reviews and some would see it as an outright failure.

Trust is a must.

All relationships hinge on trust. In my leadership seminar, I talk about the Trinity of Trust, which is Character, Competence, and Caring. A good manager must demonstrate all three in the workplace to win the trust of those he or she leads. But it turns out that men and women put different weight on each of these elements. While Character is a foundation for both men and women, Caring means more to women in trust building and Competence means more to men. These sources of trust are important to understand because, when linked to our values, it creates completely different ways in which we interpret events. Let’s talk about communication for a minute.

Speaking of Communication.

Men speak for usually one reason, to convey information. In fact, a man will mull things over in his mind and when he is ready to make his point, he will speak. A man will not use many words, and if he does it may be a sign that he is unsure about what he is talking about. This is why on some level when a man uses a lot of words in communication, other men may subconsciously question his confidence and therefore his competence, and if a man is not competent, other men will wonder if they can trust him.

Women on the other hand communicate for many more reasons than just to exchange information. In addition to this, women communicate to build relational bonds, manage stress, and sort out emotions. Remember that a woman is concerned about more than just the bottom line. She also wants to build harmonious relationships along the way. Therefore, women will use inclusive language containing words like, “We might want to try this…” or “I wonder if this might be an alternative to consider…” In a man’s world, this kind of language demonstrates a lack of confidence so when a women speaks like this, some men will be tempted to doubt their abilities.

Now it’s not that women can’t get straight to the point. In fact, they can but they tend to do this when they do not care if there is any relational bond at all with an individual. So when men communicate in a very direct manner, some women can mistakenly think he doesn’t care about them. Since caring is an essential element of trust for a woman, she might be tempted to trust the man less.

You can see how both sides misunderstanding each other can erode the bonds of trust that are essential in productive relationships. Therefore, when it comes to communicating at work here are a few tips that can help build the bonds of trust that make relationships work.

Men

Remember that when women speak the will often use more words and inclusive language. This does not mean they are not confident; they just want to make sure you feel pulled in.

When you communicate with women colleagues, try and not be so direct all of the time. Make time for small chat and use a little more inclusive language yourself. They will not think you are unsure of yourself, but rather will be encouraged by your efforts to include them in the discussion.

Women

Remember that when a man speaks he may be direct but it is not because he does not care or that he does not value your opinion. Try to get to your point a bit faster without filling in the entire picture. He will appreciate that.

Information About Harrow, Greater London

Harrow is a borough found in Greater London. Hertfordshire borders it to the north & Hillingdon borders it to the west. Ealing borders it in the south, Brent borders it in the southeast, and Barnet borders it to the east. It is not to be confused with the actual hamlet of Harrow.

Back when it was formed originally, not so long ago in 1934, Harrow was created as one of Middlesex’s urban districts. The review order which made it so actually merged the urban district of Harrow on the Hill with the rural district of Hendon and the urban district of Wealdstone. In May of 1954, the newly formed district became a municipal borough, thus gaining status. However, a mere eleven years later, in 1965, the entire thing was abolished. In its place, it became the now known London Borough of Harrow.

Located on the primary hill of Harrow is the Harrow School. The area there is extremely affluent. It is also surrounded by suburbs now. How, its affluence has not depleted. While houses there are expensive, costing an average of 1.5 million pounds, the area seems to be worth it. Its crime is very low.

For all of that, the Harrow borough is considered to be very diverse. Lots of different ethnicities and cultures can be found there, which is one of the reasons the area is so desirable.

Of course, it never hurts when a lot of well known people come from any given area. Harrow has boasted quite a few well known citizens. Popular singers James Blunt, Tom Fletcher of McFly, and the inestimable Billy Idol all hail from in or around Harrow. Roger Moore, also known as Bond, James Bond, is from Harrow as well. Sir Winston Churchill attended the Harrow School. Better still, famous Romantic poet Lord Byron comes from Harrow.
