Sage, pinon pine, granite, & clouds

Idaho’s City of Rocks between Almo and Oakley, Idaho is a fantastic place to drive through, hike, camp, and if you like high quality rock climbing…climb. The hard granite surfaces attract rock climbers from all over the world and the local climbers refer to the area as "The City". We saw plenty of climbers on this visit. The first time I heard about "The City" of Rocks was in a book titled: Crossing Zion by Keith Mark Johnson. I liked the book but didn’t care much for the author. The rock forms are spectacular to view and stands of...

Calculating Car Workshop Labour Efficiency

The clock is ticking ‘Time is money’ in bodyshops and service workshops. Essentially, these operations buy and sell the time of panel beaters, painters and technicians. A service workshop, for example, might buy one hour from a technician for £10 and sell it to a customer for £40, and make a profit of £30. (These figures are, of course, notional). Buying and selling the time of productives is, or should be, the major source of revenue and profit in bodyshops and service workshops. Profits from the sale of spare parts; oils and lubricants; paint and materials; and sublet and sundry are all subsidiary to the buying and selling of productives’ time. If you don’t sell time, you don’t sell any of these other things. Just as you would take great care when buying and selling a spare part, you have to pay equal attention to buying and selling productives’ time – or even more so, because you cannot ‘stock’ productives’ time. In other words, if you don’t sell their time today, you cannot sell it tomorrow. Time for sale So once time is gone it’s gone, whereas a spare part will still be in stock. So it is a good idea to know how much time you have for sale. This would seem pretty simple. If you have six productives, and they are there eight hours every day, surely...

Battery-only vehicles deal with avalanche of negatives

I didn’t consider I could appear up with one more rationale why battery-electrical vehicles make no sense for the foreseeable potential, but consider this. The only way that unaffordable, impractical, battery-only vehicles will market is mainly because of big government subsidies, and a number of early-adopter zealots with way too a great deal money who don’t mind currently being stranded each and every pair of months. Germany, Britain and the rest of Europe are included in scheduling large, distressing and unparalleled expending cuts to their welfare, pension and community well being strategies. Guess which government budgets will endure the cull money for wealthy individuals who presently have $30,000 to obtain a second motor vehicle, or resources for the lousy    (Sony Vaio VGN-FZ battery)? So as the launch of the initially battery-only electrical vehicles strategies, the evidence is setting up. They charge way too a great deal. They have restricted and unpredictable vary. Promises that they emit zero carbon dioxide are erroneous, except if you stay in nuclear-run France, or hydroelectric Switzerland. Designs to have a shop of charged batteries all set to replace put in kinds may possibly make sense in modest international locations like Israel and Denmark (as planned by Renault of France and Far better Area), but the economics of the plan don’t appear persuasive     (Sony VGP-BPS8 battery). Later this 12 months, Peugeot and...
