Every year is the same. Even leap years are the same as other years. Each January is followed by a February. There is always a November before December. Tuesday arrives after Monday. There are always twelve months to a year and three months to a quarter. There are four seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall. Since each year is the same it offers a retail business the opportunity to plan for ROI (Return on Investment). An effective policy to have is to never have the same merchandise in stock a year later. This means, using a shoe store as an example, that if you invested in forty shoes of one brand, none of those forty shoes should be in stock 366 days later. To further illustrate the point, let's say that the forty shoes are manufactured by Rox and the style number is 22N7A. There are various sizes for adult females and males. A Purchase Order with number 79563 was issued for the investment. If you sell all forty shoes in a month, that is great. This does not mean you should not invest in forty more shoes of the same brand and style. This means that the forty shoes you received with Purchase Order 79563 should not still be around a year later. If you still got a pair or more of these shoes, then you are losing money. An effective ROI strategy is to follow this Stock Rotation Philosophy and this is how it works. You purchase forty shoes from a vendor. Your cost is $40 and you use your general pricing formula to determine the retail price. Let's say retail is $99.99. You put your shoes on display and they are slow sellers. Two months down the road you sell have 35 pairs left. So you mark the shoes down and put them on sale for $79.99. You make some sales and a profit. Six months later you still have about 30 pairs left. So you mark the price down again and begin selling the shoes for $59.99. The profit margin has decreased but you are still making a profit. You find that the shoes sell quickly and all 30 are sold within a month. If you sell all forty shoes at $99.99 you will make a $2400 profit. However, let's say that at $99.99 the product does not move quickly. You end up having these shoes in stock for four years. So it takes four years to make the $2400 profit. However, if you find you can lower the price, the shoes sell quickly but after selling all forty at the price of $59.99 you have only made $800 profit. Lets say you sold all forty pairs in a month, and then invested in another forty pairs. Each month you sell all forty pairs and each month you invest in another forty pairs. By the end of the year you have earned $9600 in profit. By sticking to the $99.99 price, just because there is more profit per item, you only sell ten shoes by the end of the year. Your total profit is $600. $9600 is a lot better than $600. That is the beauty of the Stock Rotation Philosophy. Many people, especially business people understand this principle and if reading this article, will respond with a"duh!" However, it is surprising even to me, how many people fail to understand this basic ROI concept.

Women Nike Free Run 3 Tiffany Blue,Columbia's name is derive from Columbia River, which is a famous American fashion brand. The brand was founded in 1938, up to now, it is one of the three biggest outdoor exercise equipment brands. In the beginning of its development, it mainly produced raincoat and rainhat. Later on, the brand continuously develops diversified products and researches high tech fabrics. The classic exclusive patented shell fabric are Omni Tech and Omni Dry These shell fabric successively through the strict quality testing technology. In 1938, Columbia took root in Oregon. Because there were a lot of rainy days in the whole year there, so most of the brand's products were raincoats and rainhats in these early years. Since from 1964 to 1970, the husband of Gertrude Boyle the chairman of the board of directors Neal officially became a group leader. In 1970, Neal died from heart disease. Gertrude Boyle had to presided over the office. Depending on the drive and determination, Gertrude Boyle saved Columbia Sportswear, which was dying back to life from the helpless situation. In addition its brand development concept "Strong and unyielding, and the courage to challenge", she spoken in person for Columbia by herself. Her personal appearance fully show the brand quality strong hale, indomitable and brave to challenge. Up to now, the product series of Columbia have expanded to outdoor jacket, multi function pants, T shirt, shoulderbag and outdoor sports shoes etc from the initial raincoat and rain gear. The brand is popular among outdoor enthusiasts around the world. Columbia coats are meant to protect you from the elements, such as snow, ice, rain and wind, while you are skiing, playing with friends and family or otherwise enjoying the outdoors. Washing the coat one to three times per season keeps the item looking and smelling its best. One must be careful when washing one of these coats, however, to avoid changing its shape or otherwise damaging its surface. Inspect the coat and look for any dirt or other particles. Remove such particles usinga soft bristled brush. Place a small amount of liquid laundry detergent or a stain remover onto any stained portion of the coat. Columbia Customer Service recommends using a product such as Spray N' Wash. Do not use any detergents that contain bleach. Secure all buttons, zippers and snaps on the jacket. Then, turn the jacket inside out. This prevents the jacket from losing its shape while being washed. Place the jacket and other similar coats inside the washing machine. Do not wash everyday clothes with the coat, as doing so endangers the coat's shape and fabric. Pour the low phosphate/no phosphate powdered laundry detergent into the machine. The amount of detergent varies per the amount of coats you're washing. Follow the instructions on the detergent's box. Set the washing machine temperature to "cool" to avoid damaging the coat. Run one washing cycle. Then, run one "Rinse" cycle while the machine is still set to "cool." Remove the coat from the machine. Hang the coat to dry outside or in a well ventilated room if possible. Use the "tumble" cycle in a dryer if it isn't possible to hang the coat. Hanging the coat is always recommended to prevent any damage to the coat's surface of shape.
Sites For Authentic Women Nike Free Run 3 Tiffany Blue,Nike Free 3.0 Light Bone Reflective Silver Iguana Green Men makes headphones and earphones with a focus on providing quality at an affordable price. The Sport Fi S6 comes with six different interchangeable ear tips in order to find the pair that provides a perfect, locked in fit. While four pairs of standard smooth tips of varying sizes are included, the double and triple flange ear tips are excellent for running. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but they also stay put under humid and sweaty conditions. And while some earbuds can cause soreness on long runs, the triple flange tips were comfortable for an entire 20 miler. The sound quality of the Sport Fi S6 is very good, as long as you select the ear tips with the proper fit. If you like to wear your earphones partially out of your ears to hear ambient sound, the S6 isn't the right choice. As a noise isolating earphone, it's meant to fit securely inside your ear. With a loose fit, the audio will sound faint and tinny. With a snug fit, the audio is crisp with excellent base. The cables of the S6 are high quality, and don't tangle as easily as flimsy cords. The bendable memory wire in the cables can be wrapped around the top of your ear to help keep the buds in place. The S6 is very similar to the highly rated M6, also reviewed here, with the added bonus of increased sweat resistance and an included neoprene armband. The armband is the perfect size for an iPhone or other smart phone. There's no seal at the top, so it doesn't provide any protection from rain or snow, but it's easy to slide in and out on the go to change songs or answer a call. The standard cord is very short, which works well when you use it with the armband. It's too short, however, for anything else. If you like to place your phone or MP3 player in your pocket or set it on the treadmill console, you'll need to use the supplied extension audio cord. The Sport Fi S6 is available online for $49.95, with the included armband. Excellent for running, the S6 is also a good value with above average quality and sound.

Leopold turned over his schedules from 2006 through early 2011 in response to a subpoena from the state prosecutor's office, the calendar entries spanned some 52,000 pages. Over the past six months, his schedules obtained through a Maryland Public Information Act request were recorded in a mere 12 pages. In the past Leopold's schedules included notations that his prescription had to be picked up from the pharmacy at a certain time or that a staffer should be dispatched to the bank for him. Now the schedules mostly list basic information: the time and locations of events he plans to attend, notations of when a member of his immediate staff is on vacation. In the time since the state prosecutor's office began earlier this year to investigate allegations that Leopold misused government resources by directing his county paid police detail to carry out campaign activities, the county executive has made other changes. He has drastically reduced the use of his county paid police security detail, and he has reassigned the officers as well as the secretary who kept his schedule. And Leopold, a Republican, has cut back significantly on overtime spent on his county paid security detail, according to records provided by the county. In 2010, the detail was paid $104,000 in overtime. In the first 11 months of this year, that figure shrank to $7,000. The changes suggest a more disciplined style for the 68 year old career politician, according to political observers. Dan Nataf, the director of the Center for the Study of Local Politics at Anne Arundel County Community College, said the county executive may be looking to shore up his reputation with voters. Leopold is term limited and weighing a run for higher office in 2014. "It's possible that he's still thinking of his next soft landing," said Nataf. "He's toying with comptroller, toying with governor. Who knows what else? In order for him to be viable, he'll have to be able to withstand scrutiny." Leopold has acknowledged that he asked some of the security officers to perform personal tasks for him as he campaigned for re election last year. He has said that he sent an officer from the detail to pick up a $4,000 political contribution from the head of the Fire Department's union a task he later said he should have done himself. Leopold also is the subject of a pending federal lawsuit alleging gender discrimination. He has denied any wrongdoing in both cases. The county executive hasn't commented on the investigation in recent months and declined to be interviewed for this article. When news of the investigation broke in the spring, he called the allegations "political retaliation." Meanwhile, the state prosecutor's office has periodically called several county employees including officers on Leopold's security detail before an Annapolis grand jury. Officials with the prosecutor's office have declined to comment. Leopold's spokesman, Dave Abrams, said once Leopold became aware of the high price tag for the detail, he made changes. "The day he found out the overtime costs, he took steps to dramatically reduce the use of overtime," said Abrams. "The detail has not been eliminated, but the officers spend the majority of their time on other assignments." Abrams also noted, as he has in the past, that Leopold had two back surgeries in 2010 and frequently used the detail officers as drivers. "Obviously, last year was different in terms of the county executive's health and his schedule," said Abrams. "Now he's much more able to get around himself." Abrams said he was unsure if Leopold directed staffers to revamp his schedule. He said "the public schedule has a simple goal, and that is to track where the county executive needs to be on a particular time and a particular date." C. Edward Middlebrooks, a former two term councilman and defense attorney in private practice, said the allegations haven't hurt Leopold. "The people I talk to, they don't see it as anything that major, more like nitpicking stuff," said Middlebrooks, a Republican, who quarreled with Leopold during his time on the council. "I think they're happy with the way he's running the government. He's not passing new taxes and new fees, so people are OK with him." And, Middlebrooks added, the changes Leopold has made may allay critics. "Clearly, there's never been any love lost between Mr. Leopold and myself," said Middlebrooks. "Does the county executive need a driver? No. But there may be times when you want a security detail when there's a hot topic, or you're in a certain area at night, or there's some threat against you. So there might be times, but just on a daily basis to drive you to work? Come on, no."
