Railroad Construction

In the bathroom, me and a friend, talking. Then the old railroad construction came up, and the number of deaths and local salem, oregon burials of emigrant workers building it came in to question. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Poppy- I can tell you that the Railroads didn't bury folks in the roadbed. I can tell you that the death toll on the high country of this country was simmering bad. However, if you would often learn more about the history of Western Railroading, you might just check out the State of California Railroad Museum's website. If you're interested, the museum is located in Old Town Sacramento and quite frankly is one of the west coasts best railroad museums. I also believe that Porland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington have fairly substantial museums of this type. But most significantly the club that can get you pointed in the right direction would be Friends of 4449 out of the Brooklyn Train Yard in Portland Oregon. Look them up and by all means take a tour of their Roundhouse. You might just be suprised. Good Luck.

Heavy Construction

I am a manufacturing engineering technology and a mechanical engineering double major and am wanting to know how I can go about designing and building automobiles, ships, or heavy construction machinery. What kinds of companies should I be looking at? And what qualifications should I be shooting for. Well, I have your answer. No individual can design and build automobiles, ships, or construction machinery. You can be a specialised member of a team to design parts of automobiles, ships, or construction machinery.


Construction Technology

I am currently an Electrician Apprentice and have a AAS in Construction Technology. I am considering getting a BA in Construction Management from the National Labor College. My only concern is, would it be difficult to get a job with this degree since I don't think its a well know school? Thanks. From what I can tell… This is a not-for-profit traditional college that is accredited by Middle states (regional accreditation). The degrees will be seen as legitimate degrees. A lot of people have degrees from lesser known colleges and they get jobs.

Construction Management

The question, Why is there overpriced Web development? Has a simple answer and a simpler solution. There is overpriced Web development because there are consumers that will pay the high price. Web development started to be overpriced when the Internet began to be the home of successful entrepreneurs who, while they knew their own products, ideas and services, knew nothing about the Internet. They paid dearly for Web development experts who could launch their online business and make them a great deal of money. They did not balk at the overpriced Web development fee because they did not know that it was overpriced.
People pay for others to do what they don't know how to do, don't care to do, and / or don't have the time, energy or inclination to learn how to do. The less the customer understands what the Web developer offers, the greater the overpricing can be without that customer balking.
So, the answer to why there is overpriced Web development is that there are people who don't care that it's overpriced and cannot do it themselves.
The solution to the Web development overpricing then, is to learn how to develop your Web site yourself, or learn enough about the development to realize what is overpriced and what isn't. Once you understand at least some rudimentary technology you can at least do some Web development comparison shopping on your own.
To avoid overpriced Web development learn the basics of the workings of the Internet and the creation and maintenance of Web sites. Learn what it takes to create a site, to launch it, to keep it running. Comparison shop at least ten different Web development firms, and note the variations in each offer. Advise each of what the other has and their fees (assuming it is lower. ) Document each offer, check the references each provides and ask pointed questions. Start a bidding war, and you'll cut down on overpriced Web development.

How To Estimate A Construction Project

Can somebody help me put this a compound inequality? Here is the question: A contractor estimated that her expenses for a construction project would be between 700,000 dollars and 750,000 dollars. She has already spent 496,000. How much more can she spend and remain within her estimate. After looking around, I learned — Subtract 496,000 from 750,000 to get the most that she can spend and remain within the estimate. Subtract 496,000 from 700,000 to find how much she must spend to come within the minimum estimate range.

Federal Government Construction Projects

O'FALLON, Mo. Random state inspections of some construction sites to look for illegal immigrant workers and routine checks of the residency status of people arrested by the Missouri Highway Patrol are part of new initiatives launched by Gov. Matt Blunt. "Illegal immigrants are openly breaking our laws," Blunt said at a news conference Tuesday at O'Fallon City Hall. "Because Washington has failed to deal with this issue, states must do even more. " The worksite inspections, by the state Department of Economic Development, will be limited to privately developed projects benefiting from state tax credits or other economic incentive programs. Blunt said his directive also demands that such companies recertify in writing in the next 30 days that they, their contractors and subcontractors do not employ illegal immigrants. Any company discovered to be using illegal immigrants will be banned for at least five years from getting such state aid. That's the maximum penalty allowed by state law, he said. "With this measure and others, we will help to ensure that Missouri taxpayers are not somehow subsidizing illegal immigration," Blunt said. Blunt came to O'Fallon to announce the economic agency's new effort because the city has had two controversies involving allegations of illegal immigrant workers at construction projects aided by state and local bonds. On Monday, the governor issued his separate order on arrests by the Highway Patrol. That order also applies to the Missouri Water Patrol and the state Capitol police. Officers with those agencies have begun verifying the immigration status of every person they arrest. Blunt also has told the three state agencies to work out an agreement with the federal government to allow officers to be deputized to directly enforce federal immigration laws and to get special training. Only six other states have such an arrangement, Blunt said. Blunt added that he's asking federal officials for "expedited approval" of the agreement, which would allow more than 1,000 state officers to take illegal immigrants to federal detention centers instead of having to wait for federal authorities to do so. "This is a necessary force multiplier for enforcing our immigration laws," Blunt said, noting that the state has only about 50 federal agents available for such duty. Well, I have your answer. I love seeing this stuff. It's about time our country started protecting itself.


Many new ecommerce businesses have little idea the impact of trust marketing will have in their online business success.
For most customers the value of trust is important. This is why certain businesses continue to grow online while others do not.
In a very simplified sense online businesses that grow give their customers reason to trust them while many others do very little to instill trust.
Where does that trust come from?
1. Always work to improve Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Most web users refer to their most prized search engine as a litmus test for trust. If they cannot find you in the first 50-100 slots in a search term they will not look any further. Work to convince the search engines you can be trusted and customers will follow.
2. Making promises and then delivering on the promise. Customers pay attention to how well your word stacks up against the reality of the checkout.
3. Customer service is always a big deal. Do your best to make sure every customer feels taken care of. There are ecommerce businesses that routinely drop the ball when it comes to customer service. Sadly, many will not be with us long.
4. Knowledge-based content must be authoritative. When you give your customers quality information they can use, you extend a hand of friendship to them. You are perceived as someone who is not stingy someone who can be trusted.
5. Make sure your site is clean. One killer of trust is a site riddled with spelling errors and other glaring mistakes. Many customers will leave when a pattern of error is detected. The feeling is that if something as important as a website cannot be developed with minimal error then how important are the customers and how well will they be taken care of. At that point it's simply easier for the customer to look elsewhere.
6. Your customers are smart so let them know that you are aware of the fact. If you work to inform without high pressure you are letting your customers know you understand their ability to make informed decisions without the need to be lead. This often enhances trust.
7. The use of autoresponders can help in managing follow up and follow through. No one likes to be left hanging. When you use autoresponders you can effectively eliminate extended response time.
Trust marketing doesn't have to be hard it simply needs to be managed as an effective means of reaching the goals of your customers as they help you reach yours. If you give more than the customer expects you are likely to see greater trust and increased sales.
