EHAB ZALOK, AND GEORGE HADJISOPHOCLEOUS Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Carleton University 1125 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, Ontario K1S 5B6, Canada ABSTRACT
This paper presents the work carried out at Carleton University to characterize design fires for clothing stores. The work includes a survey of clothing stores to determine fire load and type of combustibles and medium-scale testing of fuel packages designed to represent the fire loads and type of combustibles in these stores. The experiments are conducted in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC)’s Fire Research Program using NRC’s full-scale facilities. Fourteen different clothing stores were surveyed and the data collected were analyzed to determine the total fire load (MJ) in each of the stores, the fire load density (MJ/m2), and the contribution of different combustible materials to the total fire load. The survey was conducted in 2003 in the Canadian cities of Ottawa and Gatineau. The analysis of the survey data indicated that three different fuel packages should be used to represent clothing stores. One package is used to represent clothing stores with small floor area, the second to represent stores with wood as the major combustible, and the third to represent stores with cloth as the major combustible. The results from the tests show that clothing stores that have wood as the main combustible have almost the same burning characteristics (HRR, gas temperatures and concentrations, and heat fluxes) as small size clothing stores with similar burning trends during the test. However, the test with clothing stores that have cloth as the main combustible produced twice the max HRR, a 50% increase in gas…...

Ramesh Tuladhar's Case

...Ramesh Tuladhar is a manager of a production department in Sagar Groups, a firm that manufactures office equipment. After reading an article that stressed the benefits of participative management, Ramesh believes that these benefits could be realized in his department if the workers are allowed to participate in making some decisions that affect them. The workers are not unionized. Ramesh selected two decisions for his experiment in participative management. The first decision involved vacation schedules. Each summer the workers were given two weeks- vacation, but no more than two workers can go on vacation at the same time. In prior years, Ramesh made this decision himself. He would first ask the workers to indicate their preference dates, and then he considered how the work would be affected if different people were out at the same time. It was important to plan a vacation schedule that would ensure adequate staffing for all the essential operations performed by the department. When more than two workers wanted the same time period, and they had similar skills, he usually gave preference to the worker with highest productivity. The second decision involved production standards. Sales had been increasing steadily over the past few years, and the company recently installed some new equipment to increase productivity. The new equipment would allow Ramesh's department to produce more with the same number of workers. The company had a pay incentive system in which workers......

Don't Make Clean Ganga a Hindutva Project: Jairam Ramesh

...Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Sunday accused the NDA government of turning the programme to clean Ganga as a "Hindutva project" by attempting to polarize politics through the initiative on the holy river. "Don't look it as a Hindutva project. This is not a Hindutva project. This is a national project. Don't try to polarize politics through Ganga cleaning," Ramesh told the government ahead of the first national dialogue on river Ganga - Ganga Manthan — being organized by the Centre tomorrow. The former environment minister said the government's Ganga Mission programme should be a people's programme and "we must involve society". "But don't make it on sadhus and sant's programme. Ganga is a national river. Ganga defines Indian culture," he said, adding Jawaharlal Nehru also spoke about the role of Ganga in Indian culture. Union and state ministers, MPs, experts, NGOs, sadhus and sants are expected to participate in the day-long brainstorming on Ganga cleaning plan. Spelling out the steps taken by the previous UPA government to conserve the holy river, Ramesh said, "The NDA is going about this whole thing as if nothing has happened." He accused the BJP-led government of not acknowledging the initiatives taken by the UPA including establishment of National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) for cleaning Ganga. NGRBA was established in 2009 when Ramesh was environment minister. "They are not talking of NGRBA, they are not talking of IIT-River Basin......

Is there is valid contract between Betty and Usop? In situation between Betty and Usop, if the communication complete at 11.00 a.m, there is valid contract between Betty and Usop, however if the communication of acceptance complete at 4.30 p.m., there is an issue whether Betty or Ramesh first secured the deal with Usop, as Ramesh, at 2.15 pm on same day, and posted the letter of acceptance to Usop. So, whether Ramesh’s letter of acceptance will fall under the postal rule in exclusion of the general rules or not and when the communication of acceptance between Usop and Ramesh is completed? Law There are five basic elements for forming or binding the valid contract with anybody else. The elements of contract are proposal or offer, acceptance, consideration, intention, and legal capacity.
