Raspberry Ketone: Your New Secret To Weight Loss    Submitted as: Raspberry ketone is a natural aromatic compound de
Raspberry ketone is a natural aromatic compound derived from ripe red raspberries. It is used extensively in the food industry as an additive to give a fruity aroma and a flavouring ingredient. It is also used in the manufacture of perfumes and cosmetics to make them smell pleasant. Recently it has been proven that raspberry ketone supplements are being widely prescribed as an effective weight loss solution. These supplements are the new fast acting weight loss pills because they are combined with other super foods or natural fat burning extracts from African mango, green tea, acai berry and resveratrol. They are all of known for their fat burning properties. These days raspberry ketone supplement pills are attracting a lot of attention in the weight loss industry. More and more people are buying these supplements in an attempt to shed those extra pounds and look good. What are the other benefits of this using them? This supplement is known to have high antioxidant properties. Adinopectin, a hormone induced by the raspberry ketone supplement, protects the body against type 2 diabetes. This hormone is also helps in clearing artery walls, which in turn results in a healthy liver. Elevation in levels of adiponectin regulates blood glucose levels and breaks down the fatty acids. It's possible to enhance weight loss with the right concentration of adiponectin. It also improves metabolism and boosts energy levels. This raspberry extract is known to have anti-inflammatory properties similar to aspirin. This is useful if a person is suffering from sore muscles after a heavy workout. The ketone is also effective to those suffering from high blood pressure since it lowers the cholesterol in the body. It safeguards the body against obesity and diseases like diabetes and atherosclerosis. While searching for raspberry ketone supplement pills, you must ensure that the product is retailed by a reputable company. You must also check the ingredients to make sure these pills have exactly what you are looking for. A good product should contain calcium carbonate and raspberry ketones. The calcium carbonate is an essential ingredient as it also helps restricting weight gain. The calcium binds with the fatty molecules to prevent their absorption into the fat layers and thereby decreases the activity of fat accumulating hormones. Also, check if the raspberry ketone product is made up of natural ingredients. This metabolite compound is derived from red raspberry extract but extracting the compound from its natural source is very difficult. Thus, many weight loss supplement manufacturers produce the synthetic form of this compound. Hence you must do a little research and look for a natural supplement for weight loss because it is safer and healthier.(read entire article)

9 Storage Tips For A More Effective And Efficient Warehouse    Submitted as: It is a common misconception that your company has
It is a common misconception that your company has an efficient picking operation only because your products roll out on time and the customers are happy. The efficiency and productivity of your storage systems depends on how your reorganize the process and the systems and train your workforce accordingly! The following are 9 tips to improve your warehouse operations: 1. Profile your orders. Store Keeping Units change with the seasons hence you need to re-slot your warehouse to accommodate your business model. You must review the setup at least once a year. This ensures that your units are in the correct physical location and storage media thereby reducing unnecessary travel for your order pickers. Your warehouse management system should have a dynamic slotting module. 2. Analyze your current picking methodology. You must make sure your picking methodology suits the needs of your organization. A correct picking methodology is critical for optimizing productivity whether you choose single order or multi-order, batch picking or zone picking. 3. Use software to sequence orders. Sequencing your orders by pick path, batching together all the single lines and same-zone orders saves tremendous time on the distribution part. 4. Create a warehouse within a warehouse. By grouping together 20% of your SKUs that complete 80% of your orders you can gain extraordinary efficiency as it cuts down the travel time for your pickers. But you must ensure that the 80-20 zone is properly designed to accommodate high-volume activity. 5. Evaluate your storage equipment to ensure proper application. One of the most effective storage tips for an efficient warehouse operation is to place the slow-moving, low-cube items in bin shelves and the fast-moving items in carton/pallet flow. This improves the storage density and picker productivity. 6. Create “wheelhouse” zones in your picking area. You can improve your order picker ergonomics by slotting your fastest-moving units in the waist-to-shoulder better known as “wheelhouse” area of your storage media. 7. Designate only two or three standard shipping cartons. With only two to three boxes plus a few custom sizes to choose from the pickers will put orders together faster. Cutting down the sizes of the boxes optimizes freight expenses. 8. Consider automation. Order pickers spend 60% of their time walking the product or moving the product around. Consider a conveyance or any other automated solution to reduce their extensive travel time. You can use multi-level pick towers to save travel time. 9. Understand your technology options. There are plenty of options are available to increase the efficiency which includes the bar codes, voice-activated technologies, pick-to-label etc. These technologies are designed to improve accuracy and provide different levels of increased picking productivity.(read entire article)

Legal Systems And Their Classification    Submitted as: The present-day legal systems of the world are gen
The present-day legal systems of the world are generally based on one of three basic laws: civil law, common law, and religious law – or a specific combination of these. The legal system of each country however is shaped by its own unique history and thus it incorporates individual variations. These are the different types of legal systems found in various countries. 1) Civil law It is the most widespread system of law across the world. It is also known as Continental European law or Napoleonic Law. In this legal system, the laws are legislated by parliament or some other form of government and codified or brought together. They are different from common law because they come from parliaments and not from court cases. Usually the courts do not have as much freedom to interpret laws. The underlying principle of this system is that the laws applied to citizens are made by citizens through their elected political representatives. Judges are only present to administer laws, not make them. Laws are codified, which means laws having a similar nature are bundled together to create a rational system across the whole region. It tries to ensure that all the laws have consistent principles and they interact with each other in a logical way rather than creating conflicts between the different laws. 2) Common law This system was developed from a set of traditional laws which were first brought together in England around the 12th Cent AD. It was one set of laws that was common to the whole kingdom. One of the distinguishing features of this system unlike civil code system is that it developed through usage rather than being imposed by legislation. Common law was developed based on the verdicts of individual court cases. Each court case would provide a basis for judging the next case of a similar trait. Common law is currently in practice in most of the countries. Several countries have also adapted the common law system into a mixed system. For example, Nigeria operates mainly on a common law system but also incorporates religious law. 3) Religious law In this type of law, a country's legal system is based on religious laws which apply to its citizens in both their public and private lives. Throughout history it has been observed that many countries have had legal systems that are based partly or wholly on religious teachings and these are by far the most common to those countries aligned to Islam. There are 36 countries with legal systems based on religious laws. These range from countries like The Maldives where the legal system is exclusively Islamic to India and Singapore where religious laws play only a small part in the overall system. Islamic law (Sharia) is based on the holy book of Quran supplemented by interpretations by Muslim scholars and jurists. It provides rules on how Muslims should live their lives. Islamic law also shares some similarities with the common law, and it can be said due to the fact that it has evolved through application, with current proceedings and verdicts based on the analysis of previous judgment in the cases of a similar nature. There are some fundamental differences in areas such as individual rights and equality especially in the treatment of women.(read entire article)
