Typically, when you think of replacing brakes, it's the brake pads that will be replaced. These are the parts of the brake that are seated within the caliper and push against the rotor to stop the vehicle. When your brakes need changing, this is due to the pad being worn very thin. Removing the pads is best done along with the caliper, especially if the caliper needs changing as well; however, the trick is to move the piston away from the pad. This makes taking off the caliper much easier. Once you've taken the wheel off and have exposed the brake caliper, look in between the caliper and the rotor. You'll see a round piston wedged against the caliper. Wiggle a long flathead screwdriver in between the caliper and the rotor and pry the piston back. This may take a minute of pushing very hard, but eventually the piston will be pushed away, freeing the caliper. Once you've removed your wheel and are ready to take off the caliper, a few key points should be made clear. Inspect the bolts on the caliper. Two bolts hold the caliper on, and depending on how old your Dodge Dakota is, they could be seized on, or worn. If the bolt heads appear rounded off or stripped, you'll want to stop at this point and take your truck to a brake repair specialist rather than stripping the bolts further. If the bolts are good, size up the bolt with the appropriate socket. For a Dodge Dakota, a T 45 Torque bit with a 3/8 inch ratchet will work best. Once the bolts are removed, the caliper may be hard to pull off. The trick here is to depress the bottom clips on the caliper and simultaneously lift up the caliper from the bottom. This will keep you from fighting with the caliper to remove it. Once you remove the caliper, you can remove the pads and replace them. The brake line is connected to the brake hose by two nuts, the smaller nut on the line can be easily loosened with a 12 mm wrench. The big nut is loosened best with 16 mm wrench. For easier removal, using a transmission or brake "line" wrench will be best, though these tools aren't normally part of a common tool box. In between the two nuts is a metal clip which must be removed. Often, this thin metal clip is rusted or seized on from moisture. Once the nuts are loose, using a pair of diagonal cutters or needle nose pliers to wiggle the clip back and forth is the best option in removing the clip. Replacing the hose is a simple reversal of this process. Several options are possible in bleeding the brakes. Pumping the brakes is the most often used, but this process can cause excessive strain to the master cylinder. Gravity bleeding is the best option for a first timer, as this is the easiest. Once you've positioned the pads, new caliper and brake hose onto the vehicle, unscrew the brake bleeder on the top of the caliper. Open the cap on the master cylinder, and wait for the fluid to start dripping out of the bleeder. This process causes air pressure to force out the fluid. Once the fluid is forced out, pour new brake fluid into the master cylinder and wait for clean fluid to drip out of the bleeder. Tighten the bleeder screw first, then replace the cap on the master cylinder. After removing the wheel, take off the drum and inspect the parts to see if anything is worn or needs replacement. If the material on the brake shoe is depleted to less than 1/8 inch, you should replace the shoes. This will require a special spring removal tool to remove the mounting springs. The tool resembles a pair of pliers with a special notched end to hold the spring. You will also need a special brake shoe removal tool to remove the shoes. This tool is placed over the shoe retainer pins and turned counterclockwise to release the pins and remove the shoes. These tools may be available from some auto parts stores, but they also may have to be specially ordered. During this process you should also remove the dust boot to check for fluid leaks from the wheel cylinder. If you see any fluid, replace the wheel cylinder.

After all, household incomes are considerably lower than in developed countries, and in India, for example, there is no formal health insurance system to compensate providers for MRI exams. Indian physicians charge about $150 for an MRI procedure, compared to $1,000 and up in the United States. Yet, the Indian market (and others throughout the developing world) is enormous and the demand is real. But a scaled down, low quality MRI unit was out of the question for GE Healthcare. For one thing, Indian physicians know the state of the art of western technology. attend conferences here, they have family here, says Jim Davis, vice president and general manager of GE Healthcare Magnetic Resonance business, who is based in the United States. of them trained here. Besides, he says, are on a mission to provide quality care in all markets. A human being is a human being. We don want to discriminate. GE Healthcare began development of the Brivo 355 and its sister product, the Optima 360, MRI machines for technicians using the technology for the first time. Designed, developed, and built in India and China, the machines don compromise quality but do have an easier to read user interface and are easy to operate by technicians who may lack the degree of training they would receive in the developed world. Davis calls them right machines for emerging markets. And at $700,000 to $900,000, they are the right price. GE Healthcare strategy is a departure from the traditional model where no frills products that were built for the developing world stayed in the developing world. Lower cost, stripped down products that can be sold both in high growth and slow growth markets are one example of how companies are addressing new normal a two speed world with two types of markets, each with different characteristics. On the one hand are the high growth economies such as China, India, and Brazil. With growth rates of 8% to 12% and some 2.6 billion people, these markets are hard to ignore, despite their low average household incomes. and Western Europe, for example with growth rates ranging from 1% to 4%, but relatively high average household incomes. In this article, experts from Wharton and The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) consider some of the key challenges that global manufacturers face as they attempt to synchronize their worldwide operations to meet the needs of these two very different markets. To grow, multinationals from the slow speed, developed economies must target fast growing, emerging markets. But to compete against local companies, they need to drive out costs, sharply improve quality or both. In these high growth markets, the challenge for manufacturers is to maintain flexibility and responsiveness while keeping costs down. Whether competing in high growth or slow growth markets, companies need lean products and systems, contends BCG partner and managing director Hal Sirkin. the slow growth world, you need low costs and the ability to respond quickly to customer needs, he says. in the high speed world, you need to be lean to lower your costs, customize products for emerging segments and create the capacity to grow. Companies that cut out waste through lean products and systems have lower costs and are more responsive, with shorter cycle times and higher quality. Benjamin Pinney, a principal in BCG Shanghai office, says that some manufacturers from the slow growth world are responding to market demand in emerging economies by defining a shared platform for production of high end and low end products, often at the same facility. Typically, the high end gets shipped to slow growth Western markets and the low end to high growth, emerging markets. But production can start at the same factory even on the same assembly line with components common to both models. The specifics change by industry and market, says Pinney. automobiles, the common components can be subassemblies or the partly completed chassis. In pharma, it the intermediate chemicals. With assembled goods like mobile phones, it can be partially kitted parts. With electrical equipment, it can be mechanical components for switchgears. all the automotive manufacturers are doing this, notes Pinney. In med tech, many companies are leveraging models for sales aimed at both worlds. Bicycle manufacturers are doing it too, and in the appliance sector, LG is producing frost free and non frost free refrigerators the former for low speed countries, the latter for high speed. But it not simply a matter of making more or different drugs in their current plants for shipment to these emerging economies. Instead, global pharma companies are searching for new ways to organize their go to market model in the new, two speed world. One challenge is how to reconstruct their networks to serve the local markets. and Russia require that pharma companies have local manufacturing operations to access the market, says Farber. several countries, governments say it is critical to the public health and wellness or to create jobs. So, in addition to knowledge of local customs and culture, drug makers and other manufacturers need to steep themselves in the relevant laws. In some countries, a global producer is not allowed to manufacture unless it brings on a local partner. global model, says Farber, more languages, more rules, and different duty, tax and patent issues a new level of complexity that has to be managed. Considering the degree of localization required, bringing a local partner on board might be a good idea even if the law didn require it. a local, act global thing, notes Farber. are regulatory, packaging, and cultural differences. You need to understand local markets and how distribution works. Of course, this has been true all along for multinationals seeking to capitalize on low labor costs by manufacturing in developing nations. But it even more important now that these emerging economies are not just manufacturing hubs but real growth markets and now that there a greater number of small, local companies to compete against. Marshall L. Fisher, a Wharton professor of operations and information management, agrees that what new is that these emerging economies are becoming attractive markets, not just manufacturing bases. emergence of consumer markets is interesting, says Fisher, noting that one of the missions of the Communist Party in China is to develop the country internal economy. think people are saving too much money. has, China has the reverse. The Chinese government desire to grow the internal economy and increase the percentage of income that people spend in China creates opportunities for non Chinese companies to make inroads there. such as Nike, Wal Mart, and Amazon are not the top brands in China. it suggests that you don need to be 1 to be big enough there. China, according to Fisher, tends to be a more fragmented market. But China potential market is so big, there is room to be 10 and still make money. But China also has huge companies with very little global name recognition yet. Fisher points to Foxconn, a $40 billion company with 300,000 employees and a 10 square mile campus. The company makes products for Apple and Motorola, largely for export. but no one has heard of them. Fisher is interested to see what happens to Foxconn as the internal Chinese economy develops. More Than Just Low Labor Costs Companies face a range of challenges as they formulate a two speed strategy for manufacturing, says Michael Zinser, BCG partner and global co leader of the firm manufacturing group. labor costs are lower in developing economies. But companies need to balance the low cost of labor with the added logistical costs and the risks inherent in lengthier supply chains, he notes. Add to that the rising expectations of buyers. don just want the lowest cost, they want to get their products quickly too! The best solution may be for companies in slow growth, developed markets to manufacture in low cost, high growth markets and sell to local consumers as well as to Western buyers. That way, the slower sales growth in the developed markets and the higher logistics costs would be offset by the robust local sales. But it easier said than done. companies first started manufacturing in Asia there were tax incentives, labor rates that were among the lowest in the world, and excess capacity, says Zinser. But some of those incentives have gone away, labor rates are rising (as they are at Foxconn), and logistics costs are higher. said, the cost savings are still there, he notes, you need to be clear about what your objectives are. if you want to tap into the fast growing markets of the developing economies, you might want to set up manufacturing operations there and local sales channels too, he adds. Keep in mind, too, that the no frills products made for emerging markets might also be embraced by consumers in the developed world. Again, this can create more complexity, but more opportunity too. consumers will always want lower priced products, he says. In order to provide both premium and low end products to the domestic market, the company has migrated some production to Mexico. But it has also started manufacturing in Southeast Asia to capitalize on the low labor costs and Asia growing consumer markets. Many companies set up overseas operations to take advantage of lower labor costs, but don take the opportunity to rethink their production processes with an eye toward cutting costs and reducing complexity. Others let quality, health or safety standards slip, says Zinser. A hands off approach in unknown markets can lead to problems. The best way to avoid these problems is to be on site, not on the other side of the world. is no alternative to having feet on the ground, he stresses. have to be there and see exactly what going on. Otherwise, you can end up with massive recalls and a PR nightmare, he says. have to do your due diligence, and you can make assumptions. I seen companies working with contract manufacturers on the other side of the world and forgetting to ask them what their production schedules looks like. But when you there on the shop floor, you can look around, kick tires, ask questions and learn a lot more than you would in a meeting. Wharton management professor Morris A. Cohen was recently in India meeting with Unilever executives. is not much need for marketing in India, he says. is so much demand that companies feel if they can just get their product in front of the customers, they buy it. It not worth spending on marketing. Instead, Unilever in India spends on distribution and consumer education. In some cases, he says, Indian people don know how to use bottles that contain consumer products. Unilever sets up stores run by women in the local villages. It a combination of technology and outreach that meets the local market needs. And knowing what the local market needs at a granular level requires a local presence. Cohen points out that India has significant barriers to entry, such as ownership rules that determine how much of a local company can be owned by a foreign corporation. Other challenges are structural. is an informal economy with lots of little shops by the road, so distribution is an enormous problem, notes Cohen. He recalls meeting with the CEO of a large Indian cell phone company that uses Wal Mart as a distributer, not a retailer, because the Wal Mart name isn well known in India. The distribution challenges are compounded by the country substandard roads and infrastructure. has done a better job of managing infrastructure than India, he says. markets are more easily penetrated because it is easier to transport goods there. depends on where you are selling, says Sirkin. can produce in these markets, sell for less, get your costs down, and take advantage of local market knowledge. and outsource production to companies that are cheaper. and make them in China because, unlike GE Healthcare budget MRI machines, Apple products are the same whether you buying them in New York, London, Mumbai or Shanghai. There is no budget priced iPad designed for developing economies. GE Healthcare, though, has gone through the process of customer segmentation drilling down, analyzing the market data, and coming to a deeper understanding of its target customers buying habits, favorite brands, and perhaps most important their aspirations. Bottom Line on a Two speed World According to Pinney, that are thriving in this two speed world are really good at managing both mass production and just in time production. They able to make fast adjustments up and down the value chain in response to changing market dynamics. And they make smart use of subcontracting to manage capital commitments against different production steps. that want to optimize their operations in the two speed world can learn from those that faced tough economic restraints in the past. is the mother of invention, says Sirkin. Japanese had to compete. They had to keep costs down and eliminate all the waste they could. The companies that got lean produced low cost, high quality products that changed the rules of competition. auto industry. market, and then moved up the value chain to higher end models. country or company that is resource constrained will figure out how to do more with less, as China and India have proven, says Sirkin. competitive markets, if your company doesn come up with a better value proposition, someone else will.

In some cases they even say you can rate a woman by how her bedroom is arranged and tell how good a mother is by the way her kid's bedrooms are arranged. Indeed all that is true. You can get in to one's bedroom and get a rousing welcome with shoes and clothes thrown all over the place, but all that can change from the simple way you choose to arrange and decorate your bedroom. The first step is to sort out the equipment you still need and dispose of or give to charity what you are not using. Having a lot of things in the bedroom which are not being used leads to consuming a lot of space resulting in a disorderly room. Paint your walls with good colors that can relax your mind and those that will not bore you quick. You can also pick your colors basing on what surrounds the room. The cupboards, the dressing table or the floor carpet, this creates uniformity and attractiveness in the room. After you have determined the colours of your bedroom walls, choose sheets and blankets even bed covers, or curtains that go with that color. You can also buy decorations such as flowers that can be put alongside the dressing table to make the room attractive. Do not crowd the dressing table. Many people often like to preserve tins of finished lotions and colognes so that they can show off. This creates overcrowding. It is also advisable to have drawers so that you can keep some things especially those that may be private to you. If you read books it is also good to get a table that you can neatly arrange your books. Always ensure that you clean the room especially under the bed. If you have a carpet at least vacuum it to remove dust. Some people forget washing their curtains, so always remember to wash them too and even remove cobwebs from time to time. Art work is also believed to have a lot of value. You can come up with a painting or a drawing or even buy one that has been well done. The portraits should then be hanged well on the walls. The number of these portraits should be limited because having so many of them do not make the room appealing. If you are the romantic type you can bring out the romance by the colors you use or by designing the curtains, portraits or bedcovers with a sexy finishing. This helps bring out color and uniqueness to your room. Get quality material for your bedroom. The beddings should be of good quality and the ones that do not tear off quickly. You should get matresses, pillows that are of big density so that the bed is filled up well because it gives the bed good comfort ability. The way you choose to arrange your room and with what colours will tell so much about yourself. The bedroom is considered very private so this will reveal the real you. Women Nike Free Run 3 Magenta Silver Platinum Purple The 1920s daytime business suit consisted of a jacket, trouser and vest. Fashioned out of lightweight woolen material, the suit's jacket fit snugly at the beginning of the decade, but became more relaxed and longer towards the end of the decade. Not just limited to black and gray, this professional attire also was available in green, brown, tan and blue. Underneath, most men wore a white or light colored shirt with a white, detachable collar. This was replaced by shirts with an attached collar by the end of the decade. Trousers were cut high and full, with pleats at the waist and cuffed hems. These daytime suits were worn to work, theater matin and church services. Professional golfer Bobby Jones, tennis player Bill Tilden and aviator Charles Lindberg heavily influenced the younger generation, dictating their fashion sense whether they were outdoorsy or not. Golfing pants were worn with V neck sweaters and a crisp, collared shirt. Aviator jackets became popular with young men and some women. Youthful fashion also came from overseas as Edward, the Prince of Wales, introduced the tweed "Plus four" knickers to the American public. Other British influences came from Oxford University as the men wore baggy, wide leg trousers, also known as the "Oxford Bags," with sports jackets. Imitation silk was being mass produced in the 1920s, influencing the neck wear worn in the decade. Along with silken ties, the ascot a scarf like tie that was fastened with a slipknot and pinned was worn. Another advance was hat blocks, which helped milliners produce quality hats quicker. Fashionable hats of the decade included the top hat and bowler, which were typically worn for more formal occasions. The more youthful fedora, straw boater and driving hat were worn casually. Laced up oxford shoes finished most business outfits, while the younger men wore two toned shoes to make an impression while dancing the "Charleston," according to Richard Woolnough's "The A to Z Book of Menswear." 1920s Clothing for Men Clothing for men changed rapidly during the 1920s.
