Rehab:
Rehab (Real Estate & Housing Association of Bangladesh) is the only trade organization that has 1081 membership of developers. Rehab plans to organize housing fair abroad for the Bangladeshi individuals who are living in different countries of the world to buy apartment, land, and commercial spaces in their home country. Dhaka has become one of the most populated cities in the world with hindering of all urban facilities such as housing, utilities, drinking water, public transport, entertainment and so on since 1990s. As more people are coming to Dhaka and centric development becomes the major driving force to relocate people to the capital with unplanned development of the city without considering housing for migration of people with urban facilities create unhealthy township in the capital. As well as aggressive price hike of construction cost pushes up property price out of reach for general people.

As a consumer we discover some negative factors of Rehab fair - 1. Customer service: Usually they do not give certain platform to the clients. They provide poor customer services as well as they do not ensure the quality.

2. Price hike: As there are no fixed rates, sometimes they set a high price which is not affordable for middle class, lower middle class families.

3. Violation in the agreements of consumers: Often disobedience of deeds is seen, for example- not giving the required spaces stated in the deed, problems in payments and so on. 4. Not deliver or handover the projects in due time: One of the common problems is the delivery of the project in time. In many cases, the delivery processes take more than 2 or three years.

5. Use cheap materials: In order to reduce the cost of materials they use low quality raw materials. Thus they sell projects charging more money but providing poor quality.

...The following essay addresses the issue of fair trade and basic fair trade business strategies of 50 sampled companies which operate around the world. The main emphasis is to assess which fair trade strategies and actions can be found in company reports and to identify best practice approaches. Based on these findings, I will be dealing with the question if the strategies can be worth adapting by German retailers. "Never before have had so many people so much in common, but never before have the things that divide them been so obvious.” Due to the fact that profit maximization and long-term maintenance of a business company are still the main business objectives global trade, free markets and globalization are the talks of today. At the same time organizations, institutions and governments share a vision of people of different nationalities and cultures which are able to trade resources across boundaries. However, it is not easy to maintain that when globalization does not favor those who want to trade fair-minded and reasonable. Besides there is a need for regulations when nation´s own global trading policies together with international corporations´ desire to increase their profits result in manipulated international trade pacts and agreements. Nevertheless fair trade is an effective way of development cooperation and for that reason millions of famers around the world symbolizes this way of participation in global trade relations, kids in school, healthy environment...

...Why Fair Trade? Mar. 21, 2012 Robert Skidelsky, Professor Emeritus of Political Economy at Warwick University and a fellow of the British Academy in history and economics, is a member of the British House of Lords. The author of a three-volume biography of John Maynard Keynes, he began his political career in the Labour party, became the Conservative Party’s spokesman for Treasury affairs in the House of Lords, and was eventually forced out of the Conservative Party for his opposition to NATO’s intervention in Kosovo in 1999. LONDON – Historically, the term “fair trade” has meant many things. The Fair Trade League was founded in Britain in 1881 to restrict imports from foreign countries. In the United States, businesses and labor unions use “fair trade” laws to construct what economist Joseph Stiglitz calls “barbed-wire barriers to imports.” These so called “anti-dumping” laws allow a company that suspects a foreign rival of selling a product below cost to request that the government impose special tariffs to protect it from “unfair” competition.  Such dark protectionist thoughts are far from the minds of the benevolent organizers of the United Kingdom’s annual “Fairtrade Fortnight,” during which I just bought two bars of fair-trade chocolate and a jar of fair-trade chunky peanut butter. Their worthy aim is to raise the price paid to developing-country farmers for their produce by excluding the inflated profits of the middlemen on whom they depend for......

Fair Value

...Standards Board (IASB) defines fair value as "... an amount at which an asset could be exchanged between knowledgeable and willing parties in an arms length transaction". Under the fair value measurement approach, assets and liabilities are re-measured periodically to reflect changes in their value, with the resulting change impacting either net income or other comprehensive income for the period. The result is a balance sheet that better reflects the current value of assets and liabilities. The cost is greater volatility in periodic reported performance caused by changes in fair value. The notion of fair value accounting is intuitive when applied to quoted investments such as equities, bonds, commodities, etc. that are carried in an entity’s balance sheet at their market value. This form of fair value accounting is often termed mark-to-market accounting. However, while market prices are one aspect of fair value measurement, the term is increasingly being used to describe measurement by other means. For example, accountants often arrive at an estimate of fair value for non-quoted investments based on a model (e.g., a share option valued by applying a specialist option valuation model) or specialist opinion. Such applications of fair value measurement are referred to as mark-to-model accounting. The IASB has followed US standard-setters in dealing with the problem of fair values that do not result from market prices. Specifically, IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement applies the......

Fair?

...When Mary Jones was first hired she was eager and she had the correct mind sent to do well in her new Job. Her mind-set and drive to perform well, is what led to her 10% raise. However, after her encounter with Sue and hearing about Sue being hired for $5,000 more than Mary was. Mary’s perception of fairness at her workplace has been changed for the worse. After all they both attended the same college and had a similar academic performance in that college. Sue indirectly has become one of Mary’s referent others, everyone seeks a fair balance between what we put into our job and what we get out of it. At this stage Mary’s sense of equity is low and people respond to a feeling of inequity in different ways. Mary’s current response may be to go and confront her boss in the heat of the moment, which would have multiple negative repercussions, if she were to do so. Given the fact that Mary is intelligent, I do not see this being her course of action. Most likely she well keep it to herself or confide in friends and or coworkers that she trusts. However, as a result of this new found information Mary’s howl attitude and work ethic towards her job will most likely change for the worse. In the long term Mary will harbor a resentment for Tom her manager and indirectly for Sue. Most people in a similar situation would reduce effort and application and become inwardly disgruntled, or outwardly difficult, or even disruptive. Other people might seek to improve their...

Fair Trade

...Source: DE ECONOMIST 150, NO. 3, 2002 HOW FAIR IS FAIR TRADE? ** BY ROBBERT MASELAND AND ALBERT DE VAAL* Summary This paper investigates to what extent fair trade programmes, are indeed ‘fair.’ This is accomplished by comparing fair trade with free trade and protectionist trade regimes on their compliance of the criteria set by the fair trade movement itself. This comparison is made using comparative cost based models and economies of scale models. It is found that whether or not fair trade is superior to free trade or protectionism is highly dependent on a number of characteristics of the products to which fair trade is applied as well as on the context within which international trade takes place. 1 INTRODUCTION A long-standing debate in development economics has been the one between advocates of free trade and proponents of protectionism in developing countries. While the former argued that free trade would offer large opportunities for poor countries to improve their situation, the latter considered trade to be harmful to poorer countries and typically preferred a combination of protectionism and development aid. This opposition tended to dominate the discussion about the role of international trade in the Third World. Bhagwati 1993 , Krueger 1990 However, in recent years, a third position has come up. This position maintains that international trade can be beneficial to developing countries as long as it is performed in a just manner. The idea behind this is......

Fair Value

...Fair value accounting is a financial reporting approach in which companies are required or permitted to measure and report on an ongoing basis certain assets and liabilities (generally financial instruments) at estimates of the prices they would receive if they were to sell the assets or would pay if they were to be relieved of the liabilities. Under fair value accounting, companies report losses when the fair values of their assets decrease or liabilities increase. Those losses reduce companies’ reported equity and may also reduce companies’ reported net income In response to the credit crunch, some parties (generally financial institutions) have criticized fair value accounting, including FAS 157’s measurement guidance. Those criticisms have included: • Reported losses are misleading because they are temporary and will reverse as markets return to normal • Fair values are difficult to estimate and thus are unreliable • Reported losses have adversely affected market prices yielding further losses and increasing the overall risk of the financial system. During the ongoing credit crunch,1 the markets for subprime and some other asset and liability positions have been severely illiquid and disorderly in other respects. This has led various (possibly self-interested) parties to raise three main potential criticisms of fair value accounting. First, unrealized losses recognized under fair value accounting may reverse over time. Second,......

Fair Value

...Case analysis: Classification of instruments in fair value hierarchy Instrumental 1 In the case, there was a significant decrease in the volume and activity for the instrument because of (1) significant widening of the bid-ask spreads in the markets and the widening continued throughout Q4 2012 (2) a significant decrease in the volume of trades comparing with historical level in Q4 (3) no recent transactions. According to 820-10-35-54-c, it was reasonable to determine that market is not active. Because the adjustments were based on management’s assumption, FFC didn’t used level 1 inputs in the income approach valuation technique (present value technique). In addition, significant adjustment inputs includes credit adjustment (level 3 inputs) and liquidity risk adjustment (level 3 inputs), and implied rate of return (level 2 inputs) under ASC 820-10-35-48/52. According to ASC 820-10-35-37A, when the inputs are categorized within different levels of the hierarchy, the entire instrument should be in the same level of hierarchy as the lowest level inputs that is significant to the entire measurement. So, CDO should be categorized within level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. Instrument 2 There was no significant decrease in the volume and activity for the MBS, because no significant factors occurred. Therefore, the market should be still active, even the market became increasingly volatile with some declined activity in the Q4 2012. In my opinion, FFC should still use market......

Is Fair Trade Chocolate Really Fair?

...How fair is fair trade chocolate? Is chocolate leaving a bitter taste in your mouth? But now fair trade has made its way around and is a sweet solution to poverty. Fairtrade is an organization that offers the poor better trading conditions allowing them to earn the money that they should earn. Fair trade has lived up to their values by; reducing poverty, supporting better work conditions and protecting human rights in addition. The chocolate industry has a very bittersweet story behind it which includes child slavery and human trafficking. Human trafficking is a hardship that many developing countries are suffering and the main cause of trafficking is poverty. Those who are in the state of being severely poor are willing to give up anything even for the smallest thing like water for example. Fairtrade has helped to reduce poverty by supplying Kuapa Kokoo (A co-operative based in Ghana that provides only ‘Child-labour’ free cocoa beans) with necessities that help to support over 45,000 individual cocoa farmers. Things such as water, food and proper housing are slowly in construction ever since farmers have been selling directly to fair trade therefore a decrease in poverty has taken place. A male farmer who goes by the name Issac Frimpong has said that “Fair trade has helped me get money to look after myself and my children, to buy food and to look after myself”. ......

Book Fair

...Organization of a book fair I have chosen to do my research paper on the organization of the book fair for a non-profit company in a major United States city. This book fair will take place in San Francisco, California. There are many non-profit organizations here in San Francisco that could use the help of a fundraiser. There are schools, health organizations, medical clinics, homeless shelters, and food banks to name a few. Successful planning and organizing a fundraiser will make this project successful. To begin the planning stage of this fundraiser, I will need to do much research. This is going to be a book fundraiser. Looking at cost effective ways to hold this fundraiser is crucial since the outcome is to raise money for a particular organization. I will first look at a venue. Is it less expensive to hold a fundraiser on the Internet or is it more cost efficient to hold it a location. Having a fundraiser on the Internet does not seem a personable to me. However, it might be more cost efficient. Holding a fundraiser at a physical location seems that it would be more successful. The advertising and promotion of a fundraiser are just as important. Getting the most exposure to the public will help with the success of my fundraiser. I will need to research to find out if advertising and promoting this book fundraiser is more or less expensive than with actual physical advertising. I am leaning more to the......

Drug Rehab

...Life Works – the leading specialist in private drug rehab When someone you love suffers from drug addiction, everyone in their life is affected. Quality of life and physical well-being begin to suffer, and the person you know and love begins to change.

However, addiction can be defeated with comprehensive treatment and the development of a support network for those in drug rehabilitation and for their families. The clinical experts at Lifeworks integrate holistic medicine with cutting edge, evidence-based research to restore well-being and hope for those struggling with addiction.

Our in-patient programme is an opportunity to remove these outside distractions and begin the healing process from within by building a strong foundation of coping skills, family support, and self-confidence through counseling. With the appropriate skills and strong foundation, where once there was failure there can now be success.

Fair Trade

...Fair Trade- Benefits and criticisms Important to note that the fair trade economy is diverse ranging from agricultural products to handicrafts from all over the world. Benefits and costs vary by product, historical context of market, geography, etc. It is also important to note that fair trade occupies only a small sliver of the global trade. Some Benefits of Fair Trade: At its core, fairtrade guarantees a decent price for producers by requiring traders to pay a premium, which is passed on to the consumer. This premium insulates the poorest of farmers from fluctuations in the market, disasters, and other extreme events Small-scale Farmers and Workers: The Fairtrade system benefits approximately 1 million workers and farmers in 60 developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Including their dependents, five million people are affected. Fairtrade certification allows them to achieve economic independence and empowerment while improving their standards of living. Beyond being paid a fair price for their produce, Fairtrade Premiums enable producers to better their communities by providing: • Improved access to low or no-interest loans • Technical assistance for building infrastructure to improve production • Communications systems, and collectively-owned transport and processing equipment • Better health care and education • Technical training and skill diversification for cooperative members and their families A......

This deepened the livelihood crisis for millions of coffee farmers and rural communities. The specialty coffee industry responded by scaling up several sustainable coffee certification programs, including Fair Trade. This study uses household- and community-level research conducted in Nicaragua from 2000 to 2006 to assess the response to the post-1999 coffee crisis. A participatory action research team surveyed 177 households selling into conventional and Fair Trade markets in 2006. In an effort to dialogue with specialty coffee industry and mainstream development agencies, results are framed within the context of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Findings suggest that households connected to Fair Trade cooperatives experienced several positive impacts in education, infrastructure investment, and monetary......

Rehab Care

...see in the United States two week long acute hospital stays after major surgeries, strokes or other injuries that affect the activities of daily living (ADL). The hospitals discharge patients back home much sooner than before or transfer them to facilities for further recovery. Unfortunately some of these facilities are long term acute care hospitals or nursing homes where continuing daily therapy is very limited. The fortunate ones get admitted to a specialty hospital called a rehabilitation (rehab) hospital that this paper will focus on. Here, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, case managers, dieticians, and physicians work all closely together to see the best results of recovery and to achieve this goal before the patient is ready to return home at the optimum level of wellness. As a nurse working in a rehabilitation hospital I see this multidisciplinary approach to regain a patient’s strength on a daily basis. Before I started working at a rehab hospital I was not aware of how intense the therapies are and that there is a big difference in therapy than the therapies we see in acute hospitals. Strength and endurance help people with disabilities become more independent. Refusal is not an option here unless a medical reason is present such as a blood transfusion or recent fall just to name a few. This rehabilitation care concept is in need of an analysis for these reasons. Many people are unaware of or misunderstand the importance of a......
