We're talking about a number that beats the size of the entire matchmaking industry in India; that could have made up for all the loss incurred by traders due to strike against government's stand to implement LBT (Local Body Tax).  400 million - The number of Parle-G packs that are produced daily.

A cream-coloured, yellow-stripped, wax-paper wrapper with a photo of a cute young girl, containing 10-12 biscuit with the company's logo on it and you would know these are Parle-G biscuits. Over the years, many varieties of biscuit came and went but nothing much has changed with this biscuit, except for packs. Even after 75 years of its birth, it is still known for its superior quality and taste across the length and depth of the country. Parle-G, being the world’s largest selling biscuit brand, accounts for more than half of the total revenue of the company (Business Standard, 2011). Although in past few years, there has been a consistent decline in its sales growth, it still maintains the superior position in the biscuit market Biscuit Industry overview Indian biscuit industry:- The biscuit market in India is estimated to be Rs 10,000 crore (US$ 1.84 billion) and the industry is also gearing up to aggressively tap the medium and premium segment within the country over the next couple of years. While the growth rate has been stagnating during last 4 years, it picked up momentum during the 2008-09 mainly on account of exemption from Central Excise Duty on biscuits with MRP up to Rs.100/per kg, as per Union Budget for 2007-08.However growth further declined from 2009-10 to 2011-12 and the first half of 2012-13.

...Module A The Simplex Solution Method A-1 A-2 Module A The Simplex Solution Method he simplex method is a general mathematical solution technique for solving linear programming problems. In the simplex method, the model is put into the form of a table, and then a number of mathematical steps are performed on the table. These mathematical steps in effect replicate the process in graphical analysis of moving from one extreme point on the solution boundary to another. However, unlike the graphical method, in which we could simply search through all the solution points to find the best one, the simplex method moves from one better solution to another until the best one is found, and then it stops. The manual solution of a linear programming model using the simplex method can be a lengthy and tedious process.Years ago, manual application of the simplex method was the only means for solving a linear programming problem. Now computer solution is certainly preferred. However, knowledge of the simplex method can greatly enhance one’s understanding of linear programming. Computer software programs like QM for Windows or Excel spreadsheets provide solutions to linear programming problems, but they do not convey an in-depth understanding of how those solutions are derived. To a certain extent, graphical analysis provides an understanding of the solution process, and knowledge of the simplex method further expands on that understanding. In fact, computer solutions are......

In 1981,a Casio research personnel named Mr. Nikaido broke his watch which was a gift from his father as a prize for passing the college entrance examination. Therefore, he began to develop a shockproof watch (Casio, 2009) In 1983, the first G-shock came to the world. However, it did not sell well at first. After this low tide, he spend 25 years to create his own pop culture and also spawned a variety of styles of different series. G-shock has been created from a simple belief: The creation of a never smashed watch [Casio International 2009].

...MODULE 1 1. Discuss the importance of Comparative and International Education (CIE) as a course. The Comparative and International Education is considered as a global, cross cultural, and transdisciplinary curriculum that prepares its graduates to work in and with schools – both locally and internationally – as agents of change in classrooms, schools, and educational systems as a whole.  Comparative and International Education as a course is considered vital because it prepares educators like myself to analyze, assess, and evaluate educational practice, policies in wide variety of social and educational settings. It also promotes a broad understanding of educational institutions, systems and their programs/curricula. Comparative education examines how countries plan for the expansion, upgrade, and improvement of their educational system. It imparts a wider understanding on the origins of the challenges within and outside the school system, providing us the opportunity to create and explore solutions on the said challenges. Moreover, the study in comparative and international education prepares researchers, teachers, and planners who are interested in education across nations and cultures. Various modes of inquiry and the intellectual orientations of several disciplines are used to investigate, from a comparative and/or cross-cultural perspective, the following aspects of education in one or more geographical regions of the world: educational......

I am accustomed to having codes of conduct and codes of integrity. I have them at work and we have all had them throughout our life with school and other jobs. Even though they might be slightly different and worded in a different way, they all follow the same principles. They all help guide us in to letting us know what is acceptable and not acceptable, to remind us that honesty and truth is important and to never take shortcuts, lie, cheat, or infringe on others rights. Above all they tell us that every community, school, and workplace have a set of rules that must be followed and kept in line. What did you learn about the behaviors considered important for an ethical learner or student in the University of Phoenix learning community?
