Scrapbooking has been around for years. Teenage girls have taped prom tickets to notebook pages and written their memories of the evening along with pictures and other mementos. We arrange photos into albums and perhaps label them with dates and other information. Scrapbooking as we now know it got its official start in 1980 by the Christensen family in Utah. These pioneers went on to launch the hugely successful company Keeping Memories Alive. It's been almost 25 years, but the scrapbook industry continues to grow at an exponential rate. And these past four years have really seen a growth spurt! In the last several years, scrapbooking has taken on a new life. No longer are these albums simply photos and labels or a couple of prom tickets taped to a page. Now they are elaborately styled memory books with fancy embellishments and features. Some people consider scrapbooking an art form, and when you look at some of these pages, you might just agree. Scrapbooking has blossomed into a billion dollar business. In fact, the latest figures reveal that it's now a $2.55 billion per year business - and that's only in the U.S.! If true figures were to be told, the amount would certainly be well over $5 billion.

Ultimate Guide to e-Cigarette Retail Business Step By Step Guide on how to Open a Vape Shop on a BudgetThe e-cigarette business has thrived since it started. During 2012-2013 E-cigarette industry has seen the growth of around 300% over the previous year. It is expected to grow even more and by the end of 2017, it is expected to reach around 3 billion dollars. Yet the business is still in its infancy. There is incredible potential for expansion, especially right now. Those same market professionals also believe that the market will continue to expand, with e-cigs outselling traditional cigarettes by 2047. Does this sound like the kind of opportunity you are looking for?Why is the e-cigarette retail business so appealing? The answer is simple. E-cigarettes present an untapped market where you can not only have a business, but also expand it around the corner, around the Internet, and ultimately, around the world.By starting an e-cigarette business now, you can get into the market before it becomes saturated. Too many products are hard to sell. You have to take a low-profit margin on those other products because everyone else is trying to sell the same thing. The demand is great, but the supply is even greater.I have been at the forefront of e-cigarette business both the wholesale and retail level for last three years. I am not only a wholesaler and retailer, but I am also a direct importer of e- cigarette products. I have made numerous trips to China in last few years and seen first hand how massive and fast-growing industry this truly is.I put together this guide book to give my readers an inside look at how easy it can be to set up and operate an e-cigarette retail business even with a tight budget.This is a two-part guide. The first part I discuss everything about how to setup and start your retail business. The second part I discuss how to start and grow your online business. You can essentially start both at the same time or just start one of the two, whichever you are comfortable with. After reading the first part you will learn:
Many dynamical systems are described by differential equations that can be separated into one part, containing linear terms with constant coefficients, and a second part, relatively small compared with the first, containing nonlinear terms. Such a system is said to be weakly nonlinear. The small terms rendering the system nonlinear are referred to as perturbations. A weakly nonlinear system is called quasi-linear and is governed by quasi-linear differential equations. We will be interested in systems that reduce to harmonic oscillators in the absence of perturbations. This book is devoted primarily to applied asymptotic methods in nonlinear oscillations which are associated with the names of N. M. Krylov, N. N. Bogoli- ubov and Yu. A. Mitropolskii. The advantages of the present methods are their simplicity, especially for computing higher approximations, and their applicability to a large class of quasi-linear problems. In this book, we confine ourselves basi- cally to the scheme proposed by Krylov, Bogoliubov as stated in the monographs [6,211. We use these methods, and also develop and improve them for solving new problems and new classes of nonlinear differential equations. Although these methods have many applications in Mechanics, Physics and Technique, we will illustrate them only with examples which clearly show their strength and which are themselves of great interest. A certain amount of more advanced material has also been included, making the book suitable for a senior elective or a beginning graduate course on nonlinear oscillations.
This widely used business ethics book begins by introducing students/readers to moral reasoning. A collection of readings and cases from both philosophical literature and business articles apply ethical theory to real-life business situations. Well-known scandals involving companies like Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, Merrill Lynch, and Parmalat have increased public awareness of business ethics, underscored its importance, and ushered in a new era of increased corporate regulation and governance.
Now, more than ever, a student planning on entering the business world, and anyone working for a corporation, investing in stock, or even interacting with businesses will benefit from a basic understanding of business ethics.
