Laundry
10 Sep

Linen life, replacements and reject percentage. These three powerful phrases are so dear to the heart of the laundry owner/operators these days.  As laundries fight to win, maintain and keep business, these key factors can and will continue to play an important role in the success and failure of any given laundry.

Purchasing Power
05 Sep

Walking through Ace Hardware, I thought how do they survive? Each store is different, unlike Home Depot or Lowes, I found that they are a cooperative rather than a franchise. They can compete with Home Depot and Lowes in pricing because as a group they have a purchasing power, much like Lowes or Home Depot.

White Coat Ceremony
03 Sep

The students are ceremonially "cloaked" with their white coat, also known as a lab coat which is hip-length to represent their student status.

Remember Watson?  He is the IBM supercomputer which debuted on Jeopardy in 2011 and put us meager humans in our place intellectually (or so he thinks).  Watson was the result of IBM’s $6 Billion commitment to research that began in 2006.  The project was called “Deep QA” and was a collaborative effort between IBM and leading universities.
