Because of its durability and smooth, clean look, ceramic tile is commonly used for wet areas in and around showers, regardless of what other materials are specified for the remainder of the locker room - although those surfaces are often tile, too. Unfortunately, smoothness can lead to slipperiness, and grout can attract large amounts of mold and bacteria. Still, allegiance among architects to ceramic tile remains strong.

"If a client were to ask me what I would recommend, it would be ceramic tile," Kastelic says. "The maintenance issues are minimal compared to the benefits. It's a durable finish, it has good slip resistance if you use unglazed one-by-one- or two-by-two-inch tiles, and it provides lots of options with colors and designs, which we as architects love. If you go with medium- to dark-colored tiles and use deeper-colored grouts and appropriate sealers, you won't have to deal with as many of the mold and staining issues as you might otherwise.

Tiles are a popular option for changing room flooring because there are a wide variety meaning you can customise the look to suit.

Tiles need little maintenance because they are waterproof and easy to keep clean. Tiles are hard wearing so last a long time under regular use meaning they are a good long term solutions.

...RAPTOR: Introducing Programming to Non-Majors with Flowcharts Martin C. Carlisle, Terry A. Wilson, Jeffrey W. Humphries, Steven M. Hadfield United States Air Force Academy Department of Computer Science 2354 Fairchild Dr, Suite 6G149 USAFA, CO 80840-6234 {Martin.Carlisle,Jeffrey.Humphries,Steven.Hadfield}@usafa.af.mil ABSTRACT When students are learning to develop algorithms, they very often spend more time dealing with issues of syntax than solving the problem. Additionally, the textual nature of most programming environments works against the learning style of the majority of students. RAPTOR is a flowchart-based programming environment, designed specifically to help students visualize their algorithms and avoid syntactic baggage. RAPTOR programs are created visually and executed visually by tracing the execution through the flowchart. Required syntax is kept to a minimum. Students preferred using flowcharts to express their algorithms, and were more successful creating algorithms using RAPTOR than using a traditional language or writing flowcharts without RAPTOR. Categories and Subject Descriptors D.1.7 [Visual Programming] General Terms Languages, Algorithms. Keywords Flowcharts, Visual Programming, Programming Environments, Problem Solving. 1. INTRODUCTION Shackelford and LeBlanc[6] previously observed that the use of a particular programming language in an introduction to computing course tends to “annoy and distract attention from the......

...Background of Andersen In April 1981, Andersen was installed as the new president and CEO of Beech-Nuts. It was Andersen’s job to make Beech-Nut profitable. Nestle management had assumed Andersen that he would always have another job at Nestle even if he didn’t succeed in turning Beech-Nut around. Oct 1981, Andersen forwarded the full set of Nestle quality guidelines to Storer and others at the Canajoharie plant. He followed up with a letter asking whether Beech-Nut was in compliance and received a memo assuring him that Beech-Nut’s operations were consistent with the Nestle guidelines. Andersen had done a lot to improve the company and its products. The first was to emphasize the nutritional value of Beech-Nut’s baby food. The second approach was to segment the baby food market. After Friday Incident Andersen called McIntosh first to get a better feel for the incident before reaching Storer. Although Andersen and Storer were cordial with each other, Andersen sensed that Storer liked to run the plant without interference. He had a number of questions, since he knew little about apple concentrate, other than that it went into the company’s apple juice. He had no sense of the supplier. He did not know very much about methods of testing for apple juice adulteration. After he finished talking with McIntosh, he was feeling better about the situation and reassured that concentrate supply had been regularly tested. He trusted McIntosh to......

Stacey Tile Company

...Stacey Tile Company case 1) a. Is Mr. Gilbert a good manager? Why? b. Please analyze the case using one of the theoretical frameworks/tools discussed during the class. This case is about a tile company which is threatened with foreclosure and Mr. Gilbert, a manager, who decided to take control over the Stacey Company and tried to make a profitable one. The main issue is to reestablish the company by increasing production on high quality and concentrate sales on tile setters who do not seek quantity discounts and favor a low-pricing strategy instead of wholesalers who, as he said, “always try to obtain larger discounts”. His plans go for the full modernization of the company, for having it operating efficiently, resulting in selling high-quality products. When he took control over the company he set as goals to increase the operational capacity from 2% to 100%, to increase the number of employees from 20 to 400, replace and repair the obsolete equipment and make a monthly cash flow in order to maintain under control the expenses. To achieve his goals Mr. Gilbert concentrated initially on hiring competent workers and managers to improve the quality. He was thinking on a long run strategy and accordingly he hired more people than he needed in order to train them in advance. He also avoided accumulating inventory by buying raw materials on a day-to-day basis and tying money up in receivables. That’s why he negotiated with clients a 2% discount if they paid...

...The Short Sale Process 8 Steps to Selling Your Home List the Short Sale Property When listing a short sale property it is important to educate the sellers about the short sale process. No one can guarantee what a bank will do in any given situation. Although it may be possinle for the seller to walk free and clear from the short sale we cannot guarantee this because not all lenders will react the same. During the short sale process it is important to set realistic expectations. It is often better to over estimate time frames and deliver early. After the short sale property is listed our office will reach out to the seller and begin the collection of the necessary documentation for the short sale. Market the Short Sale Property When marketing a short sale property it is important to inform the buyer and buyer's agent that a short sale can be a lengthy process. Florida Short Sale Solutions has an excellent track record of closing short sales.

Dal-Tile Research Paper

...“Why Dal-Tile, Inc. is a Good Company to Work For” Carolena Brown Prairie View A&M University Dr. Dyck, Human Resource Management May 1, 2014 What makes a great place to work? There are many ways to evaluate a workplace, but in my opinion, a great place to work is one that motivates the passion of workers and releases their talent. People always aim to work for companies in which they feel important. Not all companies are a great place to work. But there are a few. A great place to work doesn’t always revolve around perks and benefits. It’s not all about the bonuses and pay. Most employees want to feel happy for being respected by their bosses, confident in their job and valued for their expertise. I am writing this paper about Dale-Tile, Inc. From my research every employee in the company is accepted for the person they are, they have job satisfaction and is comfortable in the workplace. The company offers numerous opportunities to publicize great efforts of colleagues and managers. It provides recognition for extraordinary performance and motivates others to follow the examples, and best practices that help others succeed. Dal-Tile company's workplace is built through the day-to-day relationships that employees experience. The employees believe that they work for a great organization and are consistently appreciated.

In January 2014 an audit committee investigation was being done. Violated law In the investigation the report found no evidence that the company’s financial statements were inaccurate however it did found problems stemming from inappropriate vendor relationships with Fumitake Nishi (Anthony, 2014).

He didn’t tell the Tile Shop the nature of his operations, and between 2011 and 2013, millions of dollars in payments were processed by Beijing Pingxiu, his export trading company.

Fumitake Nishi is the person that is responsible for the business ethic violation within this company (Anthony, 2014). The underlying cause of this violation is greed. Nishi got greedy and wanted more money than he was making legally. Outcome The outcome in this situation was that Nishi was fired for multiple violations of the company’s business ethics policy. The company will be actively pursuing recovery from Nishi of all monies he received from sources other than the company (Anthony, 2014). With this violation it didn’t go to court nor did it disclose how any......
