Automatic sliding doors provide access between cars throughout the length of the train and reduce noise. Baggage may be stowed in overhead compartments that resemble those in airliners, as well as underneath the rider’s seat.

Why did the railroad become a model for big business?

Question by : Why did the railroad become a model for big business?

Best answer:

Answer by ammianus
The railroads needed to operate as efficiently as they could to make a profit – they had cost a lot to build,so investors wanted a return,there was thousands of miles of track and a huge amount of rolling stock to maintain,as well as the cost of wood,water,and coal for fuel.The railroads needed to keep as much track actually with rolling stock on it as possible at any given time,and this needed considerable organization.

Railroad companies therefore hired full time specialists to run different aspects of the railroad business. As the track and rolling stock were spread over vast distances and areas,it wasn’t pragmatic to have one head office in one city controlling everything;local and area officers, managers,and specialists were needed.So,accountants were hired to do the books,lawyers to deal with legal aspects,doctors to take care of those injured in accidents or sick workers (an engine couldn’t run,and thus the company make any profit,if there was no one to drive the trains),middle management to deal with purchase of raw materials for fuel,and so on.Middle and higher managers were hired to run local and regional offices to co-ordinate and organize all this.

All this made the railroads much more efficient,able to identify and implement economies of scale and scope on a wide basis,and thus much more profitable.Soon,other businesses and industries in the US were copying the model, and today Managerial Capitalism – the system outlined above – is that used by most companies around the world.

How does a young girl get into the modeling business?

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Question by postingnut2005: How does a young girl get into the modeling business?
My daughter is 12 years old and would like to try modeling. She is often told that she should try because she is tall for her age, 5’7″ and quite slender. Takes after her dad. Anyway, she went to one of those Barbizon presentations, but it seems like a lot of money for “training”. Is this necessary? We live in the Chicago area. Please respond only if you have knowledge on the subject. Thanks!

How can I find out if Tri State Events of East Rutherford is a DS Max company? Same business model, but I want

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Question by ihatetristateevents: How can I find out if Tri State Events of East Rutherford is a DS Max company? Same business model, but I want
some sort of documented proof that this is an affiliated company. Is it even possible. This is one of those companies that promotes a training program, promotes only within and you are “trained” to own your own company. You are only paid by commission. There is no base pay and the atmosphere room and chanting and not being allowed to sit or lean during atmosphere is exactly like described in DS Max affiliates. Also is it possible that the company owner not even be aware that they are a DS Max affiliate, because no one who works there seems to be able to figure out who is at the top of this company. Any help on this topic is much appreciated since I am trying to peice this horrible puzzle that is becoming my boyfriends life together.
