How to Experience Cabot Cliffs Golf Course When You Don’t Golf

by Sherry @ Ottsworld Unique Travel Experiences

“What is a links course anyway?” I asked as we pulled into the swanky Cabot Links Lodge in the little town of Inverness in Cape Breton. I’m not a golfer, so I don’t follow golf, I know nothing about golf terms, and I never really understood the ‘draw’ to what motivates people to be excited […]

Ny körkorts databas i Chonburi ger problem

by @ RSS

Jag skulle förnya mitt femåriga körkort här i Chiangmai. Jag hade ju förnyat mitt mc kort för bara två år sedan, så det borde gå smidigt. Efter registrering och kontroll att alla papper var i ordning och efter alla tester, 30 minuters film, följt av en timmes lektion med lärare. Var det slutligen dax för betalning och fotografering. Då visar det sig att jag inte finns med i något register. Då har jag ändå haft två körkort från Bangkok och ett från Chonburi. Jag trodde först att det var för att jag hade nytt pass och att det var det nummer som inte fanns med. Men till sist förstod jag att när databasen i Chonburi uppdaterades för två år sedan så kom inte all information med. Det är mängder med folk som inte längre finns med i databasen. Först var det prat om att jag skulle bli tvungen att åka till Chonburi för att reda ut detta men lyckades få tag på ett nummer till Chonburi och prata med någon där. Och de var faktiskt väldigt hjälpsamma, sa att detta måste de skicka vidare till chefen och att chefen sedan skulle återkomma. Så förvånad jag blev när sedan chefen ringde och sa att de nu har börjat leta efter papperkopiorna som de tydligen spara i något förråd. Hoppas det går bra!

'Little Saigon' battle may be over

'Little Saigon' battle may be over


SFGate

Mayor Chuck Reed and two other City Council members reached a tentative deal Thursday with leaders of the Vietnamese community that paves the way for a sign reading "Little Saigon" to be erected with private funds at the intersection of Story Road and McLaughlin Avenue. An earlier move by the city to name it the "Vietnam Business District" angered many and touched off fervent protests, a marathon City Council session and a hunger strike. The intersection is essentially the gateway to a milelong strip of primarily Vietnamese restaurants and shops on Story Road between Highway 101 and Senter Road, a neighborhood that became a flash point for civic controversy after city leaders initially rejected the popular name "Little Saigon."

[Tilbydes] Har du styr på dit olielager?

by @ Electronic Supply DK - Kompetencer

Du kan ikke ændre på de antal liter, der skal på kundens bil, men du kan optimere dit olielager, så det ikke fylder for meget eller giver dig ekstra udgifter. Hvornår har du sidst gennemgået jeres olieudgifter? Mange værksteder har ofte ikke en fast lagerbeholdning af olie, fordi for mange smøreolier på lageret kan betyde rod eller øget likviditet. For nogen virksomheder kan det så betyde yderligere omkostninger ved flere små bestillinger eller en ekstra overnatning for kundens bil. Hvis du optimerer dit olielager, kan du undgå begge udfordringer. Her kommer 2 tips til hvordan: 1 Spar penge på at være forberedt. Hvis du køber bredere og mere ind af gangen, kan du oftest få olierne til en lavere pris. Du har også mulighed for at yde den bedste service til dine kunder, da de hurtigere kan komme ud at køre igen, og øge din indtjening, da du kan få den næste bil ind på værkstedet. Men det er selvfølgelig vigtigt du tilpasser dit lager til dit behov. 2 Få et optimalt olielager. Det er en god ide at finde en pakkeløsning af olier, så du sikrer dig, at du altid kan dække størstedelen af de biler, der kommer på dit værksted. Derfor anbefaler vi, at du har et antal hovedprodukter og spæder op med specialolier. Ved sådan en sammensætning kan man dække 90-95 % af bilerne på dit værksted og samtidig spare tid og penge på hastebestillinger.  Med de mange forskellige olier på markedet kan det være uoverskueligt at få et overblik over, hvilke er optimale for dit værksted. Q8 vil gerne hjælpe og tilbyder lige nu uforpligtende rådgivning omkring smøremidler. Vi kender til branchen og har i mange år haft et dagligt samarbejde med mange forskellige værksteder omkring optimering af deres olielager. Vores forskningscenter i Rotterdam har specialiseret sig i at udvikle et bredt produktprogram af kvalitetsolier til alle bilmærker, og som hele tiden er opdateret på markedets udvikling.

Jag har ägt aktier i olika spritföretag och det skulle egentligen skrämma mig lika mycket. Kanske för att det är socialt mera accepterat med alkohol . Hur tänker ni kring detta ?

[Tilbydes] Hvordan sikrer du optimal besparelse på dit brændstofforbrug?

by @ Electronic Supply DK - Kompetencer

Brændstof er oftest en af de dyreste poster på budgettet i transportsektoren, men det betyder også, at der kan være mange penge at spare eller spilde, fordi hver en dråbe tæller. Har du gennemgået din virksomheds brændstofforbrug for nylig? Vi har samlet 3 af de vigtigste faktorer, som du kan kigge på, når brændstofforbruget skal optimeres:  1. Det er altafgørende at kortsikkerheden er i top, for det er ligeså vigtigt som et bankkort. Derfor er det en god ide at beskytte det som et bankkort ved ikke at have pinkoder liggende i bilerne ,og at man kan lukke kortet øjeblikkeligt. 2.  Har du overblik over de enkelte korts forbrug og transaktioner? Hvis du kan styre dine kort online og i realtid, kender du altid forbruget på dine vogne, og du kan i realtid styre, hvor kortet kan tanke og hvor meget. Det betyder du altid har kontrol over dit brændstofforbrug.  3. Planlæg ruten med et bredt netværk af anlæg. Hvis chaufføren skal køre langt væk fra den planlagte rute for at tanke, så er det spild af penge. Derfor er det vigtigt at optimere og planlægge sin rute, så man sikrer hver en dråbe tæller og kan afregnes hos kunden. Dermed mindsker din egen udgift til brændstof. Der er selvfølgelig mange andre faktorer, som er vigtige at holde øje med, men det kan være svært at få overblik over dem alle. Q8 og IDS tilbyder lige nu at lave en uforpligtende gennemgang af dit brændstofforbrug og vende alle faktorer, som kan være skyld i, at du "spilder" dyre dråber. Vi kender branchen ud og ind, og har gennem årene kigget på utallige brændstofbudgetter og forbrugsoversigter, så vi har efterhånden en del erfaring på området. Vi har også de rigtige værktøjer til det, så det skal du heller ikke tænke på. Du skal blot booke dit møde med os via linket nedenfor, så lægger vi vejen forbi dig. Book uforpligtende møde her

[Tilbydes] Hurtig levering på hele Fyn af hydrauliske og pneumatiske komponenter

Rasm. Holbech Hydraulik ApS –  Din lokale ParkerStore i Odense tilbyder hurtigt levering på hele Fyn inden for 60 til 120 min. Hos Rasm. Holbeck Hydraulik ApS ved vi, at produktionstiden er kostbar for industrivirksomheder, landbrug, entreprenører osv. Når hydrauliske, pneumatiske eller andre forbindelses-komponenter bliver defekte, sker der ofte en kædereaktion, som efterfølgende kan resultere i kostbare driftsstop. Sådanne driftsstop vil kunne sætte hele produktionen i stå, og give ekstra omkostninger. Produktionsstop koster årligt virksomhederne dyrt. Grundet vores gode beliggenhed tæt på den fynske motorvej afkørsel 52, tilbyder vi hurtig levering til hele Fyn, for at sikre det lokale erhvervslivs fortsatte vækst og drift. Vi tilbyder hurtig levering inden for 60 til 120 min af slanger, fittings og andre komponenter relateret til hydraulik og pneumatik, hvis du oplever et pludseligt behov. For yderligere information er du velkommen til at kontakte Rasm. Holbeck Hydraulik ApS på Tlf. 63128300 eller e-mail parkerStore@holbeck.dk Se mere om Rasm.

[Tilbydes] TVM Ledergruppeanalyse

by @ Electronic Supply DK - Kompetencer

Analyse af lederkapital Fastlæggelse af CEO agenda Den rette ledelse motiveret på rette måde øger value creation med 25-50%. Vores unikke koncept for ledelsesoptimering indeholder følgende elementer: Fastlæggelse af CEO agendaen Vurdering af eksisterende ledelse og potentielle gap Kortlægning af ledelsens ufortalte holdninger til drift og udvikling Udarbejdelse af handlingsplan for at sikre den rette ledelse er på plads og kan arbejde optimalt Fokuseret, men afgrænset indsats fra ledelsen Processens koncept Ledelsesanalysen er en aktivitet for hele ledergruppen, først individuelt - så samlet, der giver overblik over ledelseskompetencerne, skaber konkret rum for at fastholde eller udvikle CEO's agenda og skaber grundlag for øget fokusering og momentum. Der er tre delmål med at gennemføre en ledelsesanalyse: Status på lederkapitalen, dvs. ledergruppens adfærd og arbejdsmæssige behov enkeltvis og kombineret. Hvilke problemer eller ubalancer oplever ledelsens medlemmer, at der eksisterer i organisationen netop nu. Hvilke udviklingsmæssige tiltag burde man undersøge/overveje at undersøge & er der udvikling i gang, der bør revurderes. Mange forhold i det daglige arbejde kan medføre, at ideer, advarsler, tanker og observationer i øvrigt ikke kommer åbent frem i gruppen som helhed: Travlhed, politik, dedikation til udvalgte fokusområder, misforstået eller overdreven hensyntagen, magtopfattelse (jeg passer mit, du passer dit), intern konkurrence osv. Ledelsesanalysen kortlægger disse forhold. I Ledelsesanalysen udnyttes det, at hver leder har en fortrolig samtale med en kyndig udenforstående, og at udbytte af samtalen fremlægges for den samlede ledergruppe i anonymitet, således at der kan ske en neutral bearbejdning. Analysen gennemføres i fem trin: Oplæg diskuteres med ledelsen Fastlæggelse af CEO agenda Forventninger til planen Deltagere Leadership assessment af ledelsen Individuel assessment og feedback Opsamling af viden om definerede områder Opsamling af øvrigt input Analyse af ledergruppen Gap mellem CEO agenda og ledelsesmæssige ressource pool Menings- og holdningsmæssige positioner Åben analyse Gennemgang af analyseresultater i plenum Diskussion af positionen på definerede områder Diskussion af øvrigt input Fastlæggelse af CEO agenda Version 2 Hvorfor? Formålet med ledelsesanalysen er: - At bekræfte og eventuelt justere CEOs agenda - At give en oversigt over tilstedeværende lederkapital - At give et reelt billede af samarbejdsforholdene i ledergruppen - At kortlægge ledelsesmæssige gaps mellem behov og kapacitet; er der behov for udvikling eller udskiftning? - At skabe momentum og fokus i ledergruppen - At udarbejde en handlingsplan for at sikre, at den rette ledelse er på plads og kan arbejde optimalt   Udført for bl.a. Novo Nordisk, LEO Pharma, Bavarian Nordic, Electrolux Professional, LG Transport Nordic(Axcel Sverige) m.fl. Se mere her

Engagerad granne

by @ RSS

Idag har byggaren från säljföretaget börjat med att fixa muren i Bangkok, som en del i deras åtaganden i och med försäljningen av huset och tomten (den lilla muren till vänster på bilden). Vi är fortfarande i Sverige och följer det hela på distans. Då muren sjunkit 25 cm från ena sidan ska den bara höjas så den blir rak. Tydligen har byggledaren glömt och tala om det för grannen på andra sidan muren (vilket jag anser var ganska klantigt) . Vilket gjorde att han stormade ut idag och hotade med polisanmälan om dom inte slutade genast att arbeta. Att byggledaren försöker förklara att han kommer från Pruksa som sköter och har byggt området, och har sålt huset bet inte på grannen. Utan det skulle ha varit vi personligen som skulle prata med honom om detta innan. Då han menade att huset redan är sålt och pruksa har inget där att göra enligt honom. Att han sen stormade iväg utan att vare sig lyssna på en förklaring eller lämna sitt telefonnummer gjorde ju inte saken. Muren skulle egentligen ha fixats innan köpet gick igenom enligt ök. Men vart försenat. Spännande fortsättning följer. [emoji16] TIT. Skickat från min SM-N950F via Tapatalk
