What CFOs Really WantSo if you are going to follow the money, then you are going to have to get on the good side of the company\'s CFO. To do this you first need to understand what the CFO wants out of life. What you might find amusing is that CFOs face a lot of the same problems that CIOs face: they get niched, they get relegated to just dealing with one set of issues (money), and they yearn for a role in the bigger picture: setting the company\'s strategy.
Red in Movies, Literature and American Culture:Movie directors often use the color red to represent a dangerous character, prop or situation. Red is very often used in cinema to represent danger. One of the aspects of red that separates itself from the other colors in the spectrum, at least as far as psychology and evoking emotions are concerned, is that while the color red often signifies danger, it can also be used for love and sex appeal. From a red rose, to sexy, satin lingerie to our leading man driving a red sports car, red and sex go hand in hand.
The Danger Aspect In the movie "The Sixth Sense" by writer and director M. Night Shyamalan, the color red was used throughout the movie in props and wardrobe to signify any dangerous, intense situation. Dangerous characters in red include Darth Maul from Star Wars - Episode 1, Darkness from Legend (Tim Curry's 'Devil' character) and the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Dangerous props in movie history include the red apple that Snow White eats, Little Red Riding Hood's cloak, and the 'Code Red' beating of a soldier ordered by Lieutenant Kendrick in A Few Good Men, to name a few.
Bamboo, as a flooring material, has caught the imagination of many people as when laid, looks unique and has a beautiful, long grain signature. Most bamboo floors are made from the bamboo commonly known as Moso which is largely manufactured in China. It has characteristics similar to hardwood timber flooring which means it is strong and durable. It also has powerful resistance to insects and if manufactured correctly, is very resistant to moisture. Over and above all this it is considered very eco-friendly due in large part to the huge amount of carbon it absorbs during its rapid growth.There are different techniques used in manufacturing bamboo flooring and this largely depends on local preferences, availability of bamboo and viability.
The bamboo manufacturing process that is normally used is as follows: Japanese Toenail Fungus CodeFirstly, the culms have their outer skin and nodes removed. They are then cut into equal sized lengths which are then sliced into strips of the desired width. The strips are then boiled in a solution of boric acid to remove the starch and sugars present in the bamboo which if not removed can attract insects and cause rot. It is then dried and planned so that all the pieces are uniform.The next stage is the colourisation process. It is either used in its natural colour or it is carbonized to give it a darker shade. This is done by carefully steaming the bamboo under controlled pressure and temperature conditions. This imparts a brownish colouration to the bamboo. Since carbonized bamboo is softer, it can reduce the hardness of the surface significantly.
