Cost Cost

...Part of the process of pricing your product is including the costs of producing that product. Those costs include the direct and indirect costs associated with producing your product. Direct Costs Direct costs are costs that can be easily traced to a particular object (also called a cost object), such as a product, the raw materials used to manufacture a product, or the labor associated with the work to produce the product. If your company produces a widget and a production manager is hired to oversee production of that widget, then the production manager's salary is a direct cost. If you own a carpet cleaning business, which is a service organization, and you hire workers just to clean carpets, their wages are direct costs. Direct costs are often, but not always, variable costs. Variable costs increase as more units of the product are manufactured. As a result, raw materials are variable and direct costs. But, if there is a supervisor overseeing the manufacturing of this particular product, their salary is probably the same regardless of how much of the product is manufactured, so it is a fixed cost. Direct Materials and Direct Labor The most common direct costs are direct materials and direct labor. Direct materials are the materials that can be specifically identified with the product. If you are a furniture maker, your direct materials would be the wood that goes into making your furniture along with the nails, varnish, and other products that you apply......

Is Religion Relevant

...“Is Religion Relevant?” The question at hand “Is Religion Relevant?” is often very hard to answer with a simple YES or NO. It takes time, with deep thought and seeking information for unanswerable questions. Even philosophical experts, creative thinkers, and students alike have most likely contemplated and thoroughly thought out this question into detail, yet still failed to give a definite, precise answer for such a complex, powerful statement. In this paper, I consider Leo Tolstoy’s view on “Is Religion Relevant?” through a well-known work of his called “The Confession”. Is Tolstoy right in claiming that to understand the importance of living a life full of meaning, truth, and understanding, one does need to experience the relevance and power of religion in their life? The answer is YES, Tolstoy is right, one can find through seeking out meaning, truth, and understanding that religion is relevant. I believe it is relevant based upon the truth founded in accordance to God’s grace to provide hope and guidance to man. Even though it could be argued that the relevance of religion isn’t valuable in society or God’s grace, through Tolstoy’s article “The Confession” I will show its essence and impact on life. It is important that religion “deal with the total concrete fact, even as love must. It must stretch the understanding to the dimensions of the Fact, nor cut down the Fact to the dimensions of the understanding.” [p.53 Wieman(1)] It shouldn’t tone down or hold......

...Direct Costs vs. Indirect Costs Direct costs are any costs that are paid directly towards the material, labor, etc. of a product or service. Any cost associated with administrative needs, or ‘behind-the-scenes’ type costs, are known as indirect costs. Almost every venue of manufacturing, healthcare, or business in general has some form of indirect costs. Many times, these costs are overlooked when paying for a service or product. They are costs wrapped into the total cost of an item or service that you don’t normally think about. Direct costs are involved and associated with every service or product purchased, as are indirect costs, usually, even when you don’t think about it. Indirect costs affect the healthcare field, research, accidents, etc. Indirect costs in healthcare could be anything from administration to disability pay while a patient is off from work. “Indirect costs in published U.S. studies were based on estimates from physician panel and survey data and included loss of earnings associated with unemployment and underemployment, productivity losses, as well as loss of caregiver earnings not considered in this study” (Ivanova, Birnbaum, Kidolezi, Ying, Mallett, & Caleo, 2010). “Researchers have long been unhappy at the bite indirect costs take out of research grants, but have rarely taken direct action to control expenditures that determine those costs – indeed they may have felt powerless to do so” (Johnson, 1991).

Relevant Details

...Relevant Details Pierce’s poem, "Relevant Details," describes the mistakes young people make before eventually realizing that they have all along been on the losing side. Remarkably, in modern times, the youths engage in a lifestyle of negligence that endangers their present and future life. Pierce, in her poem, depicts the transformation of a modern youth by using flashback to recount the dark days to the transformed days. Given this, this essay makes an analysis of Pierce’s poem, "Relevant Details" in respect to the modern lifestyles and the way individuals come to realize of their endangering lifestyle. The poem begins with a description of a bar referred to as the Den of Iniquity and whose emblem was a “neon martini glass.” Notably, the name of the bar depicts the kind of place it is and the activities one would expect to place therein. In current times, such places are common and mostly target the young people, who frequent them to for their binge drinking habits and other inappropriate lifestyles. Pierce’s poem is written from a narrator point of view. In this case, the narrator, a youthful female was a regular visitor of the bar mentioned above, and she indicates that she used to dance in the presence of several men who watched her with truculent eyes. Obviously, considering the narrator's behaviour of going to such a place to satisfy her desires indicates a negligent way of life, which is in line with the modern times lifestyle. The narrator equally goes on to......
