How A Used Bottle Becomes A New Bottle

Baker College

HOW A USED BOTTLE BECOMES A NEW BOTTLE 2 First of all, There has been an increase in the curbside recycling programs in the last few decades. This has led to more glass recycling centers. Because of new technological advances that were not available in the last 20 years it is now common place to turn recycled glass into the raw materials for new glass bottles. Before, without the technology glass bottles were used primarily for covering landfills and used as a cheap construction material (Jiang, Thuy Vo,
2013).
Today with the technology to sort glass collected at the curbside recycling centers, there has been an increase in turning used glass bottles into new bottles. Glass bottles can be recycled into new items over and over again. Did you know that it takes less energy to produce a new bottle from recycled glass than from raw materials? This reduces all of the problems caused through the burning of fossil fuels, such as air pollution, habitat destruction and ocean acidification (EPA, 2013). Recycling also stops the glass from going to a landfill, where it would take up space.
(E How website (1999) stated that, it may take up to 4000 years for a bottle to start to decompose in a land fill). Unnecessary use of land for garbage means less space for agriculture and natural habitat (EPA, 2013). Glass bottles are one of the most easiest items for people to recycle, because almost all recycling centers and collection services accept them. Then, the recycling plants sell the crushed clear glass to bottle manufactures. Even though they use the crushed glass…...

Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. Each of these two men made memorable and important inaugural addresses. Although Kennedy was a Democrat and Reagan a Republican, both of these men believed in their country and understood the sacrifices required for freedom and liberty. In John F. Kennedy’s speech, he made a clear statement to the citizens of the United States along to all the other nations that he believed that the freedom of the United States was very important. He stated that he was willing to fight and defend the liberty of the United States at any cost. He remembered the sacrifices that others had paid by their lives for freedom and would not let it be for nothing.

...Jones Electrical Distribution Nelson Jones is the sole owner and president of Jones Electrical Distribution. Jones is experiencing a shortage of cash, which is needed to sustain anticipated growth in sales for the coming year. The company is in need of a new bank relationship because its current lender, Metropolitan Bank, is unwilling to provide Jones with the proper loan amount to maintain growth. Jones is introduced to Rachel Montrose, the relationship officer at the local branch of Southern Bank and Trust. Montrose discusses the possibility of extending a line of credit to Jones up to a maximum amount of $350,000. After being inspected by the credit department of Southern Bank and Trust, Montrose sets out the standard covenants applying to the loan. If Jones decides to enter into a deal with Southern Bank and Trust, then he must severe his relationship with his previous lender, Metropolitan Bank. Jones is a sole proprietorship that sells electrical components and tools to general contractors and electricians (ex. Controllers, breakers, signal devices, and fuses). Jones purchases from nearly 100 different suppliers. Jones sales followed the seasonality of its customers’ businesses, which had their busiest time during summer and spring when the weather is ideal for construction work. Its market is large, fragmented, and highly competitive. Jones competes on price and by employing an aggressive direct sales force, often visiting customers on job sites. He relies on......

Jones Electrical

...Jones Electrical Distribution In the case of Jones Electrical, after running pro-forma financial statements for the year 2007, Mr. Jones should forgo taking the trade discounts. Although it would seem advantageous to pay suppliers within the discount period (2/10/net 30), the amount of capital required is beyond the capability of the business and the extent that Southern Bank & Trust was willing to provide. As it can be seen from Exhibit 1, the amount of external finance needed to take the discounts equates to $389,000; Southern Bank & Trust was only will to extend of line of credit to the amount of $350,000. After forecasting the remaining three periods of 2007 it seems that Jones Electrical will be more profitable than the prior year. However, after further analysis of the company it becomes apparent there are several issues facing Mr. Jones. First, is the issue of incredible narrow margins. By the nature of the business, Jones Electrical is in the position of the middleman – providing a general store for contractors and electricians. Due to the circumstances, in the competitive market that exists Mr. Jones must utilize low prices to gain market share. Therefore, even though sales grow by 20.4% in 2007 his net margin is 1.35%, up only 0.01% from 2006 (as seen in Exhibit 2). The concern becomes, where is the money going if it is not trickling through the Income Statement from sales to net income? The answer lies in the average days to collect...

With its 2007’s sales go up, Jones need borrow more money to help its rapid development. Then he got a maximum line of credit $350,000. With our analysis report, we help Jones to choose whether to take advantage of 2% trade discount, we can observe that Jones’credit line will be $318,000 without discount, not $387,000 with this 2% discount. Problems Statement Jones Electrical Distribution’s current condition is not only cash shortage but also under rapid sales grows’ effect. Why this profitable firm needs to increase its borrowing, what kinds of strategies Jones Electrical Distribution will choose, and what his estimate of the loan needs is. These are the problems we will talk about bellows. Data Analysis 1. According to the balance sheet and sources and uses statements (appendix 1), we can see that the line of credit payable increases every year, because Jones needs more and more funds to support the needs of working capital and invest to long-lived assets such as plant, property and equipment to support higher sales levels. We can see that Jones used its profits (changed in Net Worth), cash and short-term debt to support the needs of working capital and the increase of inventory (probably to support higher sales levels). The reduction in long-term debt is a use of funds because Jones is repaying a loan. The decrease of cash is a source of funds to......

The Embalming of Mr. Jones

...In The Embalming of Mr. Jones, Jessica Mitford reveals an in-depth look into the embalming practices of the funeral industry. As a long tradition, the relatives would view the process of embalming within the deceased’s home. However, funeral directors have slowly relocated the embalming to funeral homes and discouraged the relatives from attending. Mitford postulates if American were to know the funeral industry’s practices, American would reject the services. Therefore, it is in the best financial interest of the funeral industry to shroud their practices in secrecy. Mitford discusses the terminology that embalmers use to refer to themselves, “dermasurgeon.” Mitford further states the title was positively corrupted to “demisurgeon.” These embalmer utilizes multiple medical tools, such as scissors and forceps, and chemicals to successfully embalm. Mitford expresses her disdain by stating the tools and techniques used are crude compared to a proper surgeon. Many different types of chemical are for specific uses. A vast array of cosmetic products and aid are used in dressing the body. John Eckels, president of the Eckels College of Mortuary Science, explained the process would take a short amount of time in skilled hands. No matter how damaged the bodies are, the bodies can be restored into a resemblance of normalcy. First, the embalmer drains the blood from Mr. Jones’s body through one of the arteries. Each embalmer has their own favorite artery to work with. Embalming......

Jasper Jones

...ignorant is explicated in Craig Silvey's coming of age novel, Jasper Jones. The bildungsroman is narrated by Charlie Bucktin, an adolescent from the small town of Corrigan. Charlie becomes unexpectedly involved with a local indigenous boy, Jasper, as they set out to discover the truth about the death of a young girl from their community. Throughout this quest, Charlie comes to many realisations about life, ultimately, that society can be very cruel. The prejudism and ignorance of the tight-knit community of Corrigan manifests in the discrimination of ostracised characters. Silvey's narration evokes readers' emotions and manipulates their awareness of isolation, scapegoats and atonement; ultimately, causing readers to feel disillusioned about Australia's past and cruelty towards repudiated individuals. Although Silvey's text is a work of fiction, it indubitably reveals truths and makes real comments about the ethnocentrism that was ubiquitous in rural, Australian towns in the 1960's, thus illuminating our nation's history of racism and intolerance. Isolation is a form of segregation of individuals who are ostracised in our prejudicially dichotomous society. The small country town of Corrigan, whilst merely a fictional creation, acts as a microcosm that exposes real truths; namely, it epitomises the idea of social ignorance and marginalisation of the minority groups in the coming of age novel, Jasper Jones. The theme of isolation depicts how Western Australia, during......
