What the fuck is the Six sigma organizational initiative? The six sigma approach is a type of "company/organizational" approach towards cutting costs through quality. The theory was developed in 1981 by Motorola co , and later adopted by General Electric (popularized circa 1994). The main focus of this perspective on "cutting costs" and "increasing profits" is quality. As oppose to standard "maximum output at fair quality and cutting back on quality to save money" , six sigma focuses on cutting costs of damaged batches , or defects through identifying , analyzing and correcting whatever may be causing the initial defects in quality (be it a service or a tangible product). Six sigma focuses on doing one process in such a way that there is no way in fuck someone can screw it up. For example , if items at a dairy farm are bing turned into another conveyor belt by humans ,...
Obama wastes tax money Although this might sound a bit heartbreaking for all of you Obama fans out there, president Obama has decided to give almost 9 BILLION of your tax dollars to African countries in an effort to give them "electricity". These countries include some of the worst infested pirate regions in the world, including Somalia and Nigeria. And instead of dealing with financially challenged Americans , homeless people , people that can't afford an education and people that need government assistance to pay their own bills, Obama is sending huge paychecks of your tax dollars to give Africans some electricity. In the most crippling financial times since the great depression , we have to get a higher tax on gas and cigarettes to pay for some random people's air conditioning. Perhaps this is going to get severely criticized, but seriously, is there a stupider , less believable way to...
Amazon , the one company that has a reputation for "quality"-- and of course the smiley faces on the packaging boxes , has decided to move to a new niche : on line food distribution. Because amazon already is the largest e-commerce website on the net, it can afford to take risks with it's almost half a trillion per year profit margin. Recently, amazon has announced plans to add "shopping for groceries online" to their list of services. Although companies like stop and shop already have services like peapod, where you can get groceries delivered to your doorstep , amazon is better known and has a larger "global reach". Soon people might no longer need to get out of their house to do their shopping. In the future, your food could be at your doorstep as easily as ordering batteries off Amazon.

Money sucked into wormhole In 1901 , colleges that now cost upwards to 48,000$ /year only cost 100$ per year. We know that much like the famous 5 cent coke bottles of the time , and 5 penny per gallon gas, the prices were due to lack of inflation of the American bank note. We actually wrote about why American money has fallen in value here " American Money Value Drop ". Even though on the global field , the US dollar has dropped in value over 95% ( and falling ) in the past century , this would logically mean that University prices should not exceed 1000$/year , right? Well, to our dismay , it appears that the lack of value in association with the U.S dollar has nothing to do with the made-up prices of colleges these days. You see, back in the day all of our colleges were...
In the world of law, things constantly change , new things are added and the outdated are tossed out. But today, I will explain the basics that have been used for almost 300 years in regards to "contracts". contracts Definition A contract is a legal(in the eyes of the law) agreement in which two parties consent to exchanging services, materials or intellectual property. Likewise, there is a set of laws , commonly referred to as " contractural laws" that aim to support contracts word for word. The main aim of these, as with many other laws, is to make outcomes of contracts more predictable. How to form a contract Forming a contract can be as easy as asking someone to hand you over their godamn bicycle for a penny or two. If the person agrees, then you are forming a contract where you are receiving goods for money. The contract is...
Is the economy getting better? Well, if anything international trade and income have skyrocketed this month. We are not sure if someone is hoaxing the world into buying American stocks, like overseas investors maybe? Not to be paranoid, but our country hasn't had 14,393 mark point in all major markets, ever. It sounds a bit fishy, but as long as it may possibly lower gas prices, why would we complain? dow all time high
After reading a post on fox news in reference to a recent decision to send massive amounts of illegal aliens back to their countries of origin, and seeing the crooked viewpoint of whatever imbecile wrote this article, we just want to make you fully aware that what they have stated is a load of lies. First of all, are you aware that DEA and Immigration officials that create these asylums to process immigrants for months are paid with your tax dollars (165$/day/person+fees)? ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS So basically, the longer they hold these poor commoners, that simply want to pick fruit or work in construction to provide for their families, the more money these officials make. And for what? To keep people held prisoner for no reason whatsoever? Because it totally takes 6-12 months to process a guy and send him back to Mexico, right? Well, as we have seen in Fox News'...
Atari, for so long the leader of innovative new video games in the United States has finally come to it's final days of life in the United States (not the Japanese branch which was sold over twenty years ago). The French ( originally Japanese ) based company has been creating innovative products for us since 1975! Atari Atari was indeed the creator of pong, centipede and pacman. Many of us older folks would call it the beginning and "foundation of all video games". But alas, all things must come to a miserable end. Atari has been having a horrible time trying to compete with much of anything since 2000, and Nintendo in 1980 already had a clear advantage in the field of innovation. Atari had changed hands over three times in the past ten years. They were destined to fail, but rather than merge with the larger companies, they chose to...

The future of the banking world has always been shifting. Just twenty years ago, people were still adamant about using cheques over credit and debit cards. But as you can now see, this has changed drastically. In fact 78% of all transactions done by merchants in 2011 were done on credit or debit cards ( source=international service of revenue census of credit processing ). Much like the cheque, the credit and debit card might be the next thing to become just a thing of the past. For over five years now, Contactless smart cards have been used over in Europe, and Asia. Analysts predict the trend will move into the united states and Canada in early 2013. What is a contactless smart card? Well, a contactless smart card is pretty much the 75% the size f your average credit/debit card. Now instead of having to slide it, you simply put it...
Just as a general warning to the public, as of October 2011, congress did indeed enact a clause to the law (amendment) which stated that banks would be limited to the percent which a merchant could be charged per credit/debit/cheque swipe. As such, anyone in the Massachusetts area could quite possibly be spending thousands a month with their current processor. You might be asking "WHY?". Well, the clause deemed "the Durbin Amendment" does address the banks, but it completely skips out on processors. Therefore, processors (always a third party working with your current bank) are charging you from 50%-75% more than what they should be charging. Now, what can you do? Well for one, you can google "The Durbin Amendment" and look at the percents the bank is LEGALLY allowed to charge. Now this should be no greater than 1.4% base(before additional fees). Following standard fees, a decent amount per credit...
Daimler-Benz has announced that 2013 will be the final production year of the Maybach ultra-luxury brand executive car series. Maybach was the name of a car company that actually existed in Germany since 1908, later Maybach would produce diesel engines for Tiger tanks and Uboats, along with various cooperative efforts with Henschel to create super heavy tanks . Unfortunately, even though the brand name "Maybach" was brought back in the early 2000s, it has been confirmed that the brand will be liquidated next year. Why? some sort of bs about how companies like Rolls Royce and Bentley produce cheaper cars, and how most people have never even heard of Maybach. Lets just go back and show you a few beautiful models Maybach has created for billionaires. Maybach 57: The Maybach 57 is perhaps the cheapest model of Maybach ever produced, the 2012 model starts at about 500,000$, and comes loaded with...
You might be thinking that the jobless percent tells us how well the country is doing, unfortunately you would be dead wrong. The jobless percent is a statistic of the amount of people that have been out of a job for about one year's time, and are still actively looking for a job. People that no longer receive income from the jobless bureau are tallied off, this means if you can't find a job one year after being canner, or released, you don't count towards the jobless statistic anymore. In effect, the percent might be an all time low 7.8%, in reality it's more like 15% , solid and unfortunate. Let's not forget that in the eyes of the people, the homeless are no longer tallied either. So, don't even for a second think the economy is getting better. Money
We are deeply regretful to say, we don't really care who wins this this election , and neither should you! As citizens of the continental United States, this year may be our last, so instead of going to vote on election day, go to church, ask god to forgive you for your sins, December 22nd is fast approaching, repent now while you still can :) But seriously, there is no difference between Obama or Romney for us, they could be one guy for all we know, vote for whomever you think is sexier I guess ;) Please note, we are not covering this election at all because we have reason to believe that none of you give a f*** :) Obama V.S. Romney
