Car Rental

...A car rental or car hire agency is a company that rents automobiles for short periods of time (generally ranging from a few hours to a few weeks) for a fee. It is often organized with numerous local branches (which allow a user to return a vehicle to a different location), and primarily located near airports or busy city areas and often complemented by a website allowing online reservations. Car rental agencies primarily serve people who have a car that is temporarily out of reach or out of service, for example travellers who are out of town or owners of damaged or destroyed vehicles who are awaiting repair or insurance compensation. Because of the variety of sizes of their vehicles, car rental agencies may also serve the self-moving industry needs, by renting vans or trucks, and in certain markets other types of vehicles such as motorcycles or scooters may also be offered. Alongside the basic rental of a vehicle, car rental agencies typically also offer extra products such as insurance, global positioning system (GPS) navigation systems, entertainment systems. Although some car rental companies provide self-moving cars which are often trucks and vans to customers with house moving purpose, most car rental companies offer cars such as economy cars, midsize cars, full size cars, standard cars, premium cars, SUV mostly to travelers. From this point, Car rental companies provide transportation for travelers who temporary need cars in the travel destination, so car......

Lotus Rental

...Lotus Rental Going Green Richard Huerta, Mona Miles, Timothy Likens COM/215 April 27, 2014 Whitney Bell Alternate-Fueled Vehicles Going green is becoming more and more popular with advances in technology. One way is to own a vehicle that uses other than fossil fuels. Automobiles in the last 10 years have evolved from using gasoline and diesel as a primary power source, and now include features once only seen in luxury cars. Introducing them to a rental car company may give it more of a variety to offer its customers. Introduction This paper is to introduce the idea of the integration of alternate-fueled vehicles into the Lotus Rental Car Company and the feasibility to do so to the Chief Financial Officer. There are numerous factors to consider. A large purchase, especially for vehicles, requires in-depth research and weighing of advantages and disadvantages that need to be evaluated. Alternate Fuel Sources There are a few power source options when looking to buy or lease alternate fueled vehicles; ethanol; flex-fuel; hybrid; electric; and natural gas. Alternate fuel source seem to be attractive for consumers as the high prices for fossil fuels continue to climb. With the purchase of new fuel-saving vehicles in mind, each fuel source will be examined. Each type of fuel does have its own great benefit as well as drawback. Ethanol Ethanol is a fuel that is usually comprised of 10% gasoline and 90% ethanol. The more commonly known mixture is 15%......

...comply with the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 in terms of the content of the notice itself and the amount of notice (i.e. what period of time until the dwelling is to be vacated) given. The content of the notice will depend on whether it is served by the landlord or tenant, the length of the tenancy and the reason for the termination. Where a tenancy that was entered into for a specific period (i.e. a fixed term tenancy) comes to the end of that period, a notice of termination does not have to be issued. If that period was 6 months or more and the tenant intends to continue in occupation, he/she must inform the landlord of that intention between one and three months before the expiry date. Note: It is an offence to purport to serve an invalid notice of termination and then act in reliance on it in a way that adversely affects the interests of the person on whom it was served. 2. Termination of a Tenancy by a Landlord Valid notice In order to be valid a notice of termination must: • Be in writing • Be signed by the landlord or by his/her authorised agent • Specify the date of service • State the reason for termination (where the tenancy has lasted for more than 6 months) • Specify the termination date (the tenant has the whole of the 24 hours of this date to vacate possession) • State that any issue as to the validity of the notice or the right of the landlord to serve it must be referred to the Private Residential Tenancies......

Residential Sprinklers

...proposed legislation and will discuss the benefits it will promote include reduction of fire deaths, decrease in property destruction. We will discuss the community wide benefits and the economic impacts of the cost associated with sprinkler installations. Residential sprinklers have been around since the 1970’s. The first residential sprinkler ordinance was implemented in San Clement, CA in 1980. Since the 1980 it is slowly increasingly more common to see residential sprinklers installed in new and remodel 1-2 family dwellings by the amount of 1-2%. Residential sprinkler systems have several benefits and are more beneficial the residents without contrary to popular belief. First and most important is the reduction of fire deaths. Sprinklers have been very successful in reducing multiple deaths from a single fire in a home. NPFA has yet to have a finding, or report that more than 2 people being killed in a fire where sprinklers were present and operational. In a 10 year period between 1989-1998 in the US, deaths were reduced by 78% when a residence was fully sprinklered. Since this study alarm systems have come along way with more advance technology and safer systems. An example of the effectiveness of the residential sprinkler system is the ordnance implemented in Vancouver. Over a 7 year period after the ordnance was in placed the fatality rate per year was reduced by 69%. Sprinkler systems will also play a role in the reduction of personal injuries. It is......

Residential Care

...following essay is on Alternative care, Alternative care is known as both residential care and foster care. The discussion will be based on the residential care system in Ireland. Therefore, this essay will firstly begin by outlining the residential care system. It will then go on by discussing the needs of the child within residential care (Share and McElwee, 2005). The analysis continues by identifying and discussing the aspects of working in the residential care system. Finally, it will look at the importance of the social care practitioner within the residential care system and how the practitioner addresses the needs of the children within the care system. The discussion will then be concluded. The needs of young people in Residential Care Throughout society, it is a widely known certainty that young kids pass through the Residential Care system for many troublesome causes. Everyone in society is different to one another, different children have different needs which result from the poor care experience undergone by each child. The setting of Residential Care should, therefore, as much as possible, offer a home atmosphere to these children, that is, a welcoming and warm environment. Article 42.5 distinctly commits the Irish state to allocate care to a child under the age of 18, for whatever the cause, cannot be protected by their guardian/ parents at this time. “The main purpose of residential care is to provide and safe environment for children and young people who......

Residential Schools

...The Residential school system in Canada was a system devoted to providing a disciplined based ideal that promoted the rejection of the aboriginal culture in favor of the then dominant white European population. The teaching strategies that were encouraged ranged from pulling children as young as six away from their parents to mental, physical and sexual abuse. The Residential schools were run by a variety of participating church organizations, which received funding from the Canadian government. The funding was based on a per aboriginal basis therefore it was in the best interests of the churches to enroll as many aboriginal students as possible. The schools were run in almost every province in Canada from 1860-1884 and claimed to be promoting religious and cultural assimilation. However, the cruelty that was experienced by many young aboriginals in the residential schools emphasizes the differences between the aboriginal societies and the European dominant society making complete assimilation impossible. The imposition of residential schools on First Nations children has led to significant loss of indigenous languages, and this language loss has led to further cultural losses for traditional First Nations cultures in Canada. The earliest known date opening of a Residential school was in 1840, located in Manitowaning, Ontario. The school was the Wikemikong Indian Residential School, it closed in 1879. The last Residential school to close was La Tuque Indian...

Residential

...around developing relationships as there may be trust issues, it can be seen through the theory Erickson’s theory that mistrust can be developed through the early stages of life, and how one’s needs are not met, so in an overall view this can lead an individual not having trust in people around them and those who may enter their lives at a later stage. When speaking of challenging behaviour, I am referring to the intensity of and frequency in how one individual may express themselves. This is also the types of behaviours in which may not be seen as to be normal behaviours by society in its self. It is to be focused as well in how well a social worker can conduct themselves and how they personally can handle the situation. Working in residential care homes for young adults this is not something in which an individual can prepare themselves as the constancy of outburst can be on a regular basis or as little as possible. Each individual is different to the next person and has their own particular issues and can behave differently to the next. One learning aspect for me is to not judge the individuals and to try and show them compassion and understanding, and be able to identify as why it is that they may behave the way they do. There are many reasons as to why one behaves in the way they do, as this is what may fit their life style and this is how they have adapt to particular lifestyle. At the beginning of the placement I have spoken with the SCM in regards to the......

Residential School

...Residential School Residential school: (in Canada) a boarding school maintained by the Canadian government for Indian and Inuit children from sparsely populated settlements.  Two primary objectives of the residential school system were to remove and isolate children from the influence of their homes, families, traditions and cultures, and to assimilate them into the dominant culture. These objectives were based on the assumption Aboriginal cultures and spiritual beliefs were inferior and unequal. Indeed, some sought, as it was infamously said, “to kill the Indian in the child.” Before the confederation (1867) and until 1910, Churches and the government sought to assimilate the Native peoples. Residential schools became the promote method of assimilation. At one time or another, 144 residential schools existed in Canada. An estimated total of 150, 000(one hundred and fifty thousands) children attended the schools. Imagine five hockey arenas, each setting 30,000. It is said to be a cultural Genocide? How? Evidence/ Quote "When the children came back, they were different, speaking in the wemistikoshiw tongue, talking back to their parents, fighting and hitting one another, crying in the middle of the night for no reason" With the loss of their families and its influences, children that were sent to residential schools resulted in the loss of their First Nations culture and a negative difference in behavior What led to residential school?

Residential Case

...Single Family Residential Case 3007 P ST NW, Washington, DC, 20007 1. Recommendation: Do not pay in excess of $1,968,000 for the subject property located at 3007 P St NW, Washington, DC, 20007. This value will provide a 10% Internal Rate of Return and a 23.2% average cash-on-cash. 2. Issues: ▪ Rental Rate- One main issue was coming up with the appropriate rental rate. REIS, Costar and various other reports were used based on the NW DC/Georgetown submarket. From these studies, a rental rate of $2.89 per square foot was calculated. Using this calculation, the property would have a monthly rental income of $6,878 ($2.89 x 2,830 sq ft). This approach doesn’t take into consideration the English basement as additional income, parking, superior location, and overall quality and appeal of the property. After conducting more research and speaking to broker Nicki Berg from Colliers International on February 1, 2012 at 10am, a monthly rental price of $11,600 was deemed appropriate given the prestige of the property. ▪ Rental escalation- Based on data from Costar and REIS, a rental escalation of 3.5% was projected. Based on conversations with professionals in the industry, a 4.0% rental escalation was used. ▪ Vacancy Rate- Based on a REIS submarket study, the average vacancy for the NW DC/ Georgetown submarket is 4.0% for a five year annualized forecast. Vacancy generally moves inversely with the strength of the market. That is, the weaker the......
