The ratings shown are based on WATER PENETRATION tests and procedures performed in AIR PERFORMANCE accordance with AMCA Publication WIND 511 and comply with the requirements DRIVEN RAIN AIR MOVEMENT of the AMCA Certified Ratings AND CONTROL ASSOCIATION Program. The AMCA Certified Ratings INTERNATIONAL, INC. ® Seal applies to air performance, water penetration, and wind-driven rain ratings.

Discharge Loss Coefficient Class (Intake) = 3

Weather louvers shall be classified by their ability to reject simulated rain. The table shows different classifications based on the maximum simulated rain penetration per square meter (square feet) of louver. Water penetration rating at a given louver face velocity is determined by the water penetration while the louver is subjected to a selected simulated rainfall rate and wind velocity.

Free Air Velocity

Model EHH-401 resistance to airflow (pressure drop) varies depending on louver application (air intake or air exhaust). Free area velocities (shown) are higher than average velocity through the overall louver size. See louver selection information.

The AMCA Water Penetration Test provides a method for comparing various louver models and designs as to their efficiency in resisting the penetration of rainfall under specific laboratory test conditions. The beginning point of water penetration is defined as that velocity where the water penetration curve projects through 0.01 oz. of water (penetration) per sq. ft. of louver free area. *The beginning point of water penetration for Model EHH-401 is above 1250 fpm free area velocity. These performance ratings do not guarantee a louver to be weather-proof or stormproof and should be used in combination with other factors including good engineering judgement in selecting louvers.

National Cranberry

...process and market their berries. In the early 1990’s, there was a growing surplus of berries so the growers resorted to the Agriculture Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 to restrict the amount of crop processed. In addition, the cranberry harvesting process was becoming more automated during this period of time. There are two types of berry harvesting: 1) water harvesting which involves flooding bogs, using machines to shake the bushes, and collecting the berries that float to the top; and 2) dry harvesting which requires hand picking. Water harvesting typically results in a yield of 20% more berries than dry harvesting, however, it causes more damage and reduces the time between harvest and long-term storage. Cranberries are processed for one of two purposes: 1) preparing raw berries for sale; and 2) preparing berries for use in juice, canning, freezing, and other processes. The process for preparing berries to be processed at Receiving Plant 1 (RP1) is as follows: 1) Bulk trucks arrive at random with an average delivery of 75 barrels (bbl: which weighs ~100 pounds). 2) The truck is weighed, the full and empty truck weight is recorded and a sample(s) of 30 pounds is taken for initial berry grading (Lowest grade and price 1, 2A, 2B, 3 Highest grade and price). 3) The truck backs into 1 of 5 dumpers 4) A conveyor belt takes the berries to the second level to one of 27 holding bins (takes 7-8 minutes): 1-24 Holds 250 bbls of wet or dry berries (6,000 bbls......

Herrick V. Wild Blue Berry

.... S. HERRICK CO. v. MAINE WILD BLUEBERRY CO. Supreme Judicial Court of Maine, 1996. 670 A.2d 944. BACKGROUND AND FACTS E. S. Herrick Company grows and sells blueberries. Maine Wild Blueberry Company agreed to buy all of Herricks 1990 crop under a contract that left the price unliquidated. Herrick delivered the berries, but a dispute arose over the price. Maine Wild sent Herrick a check with a letter that stated the check was the final settlement. Herrick cashed the check but filed a suit in a Maine state court against Maine Wild, on the ground of breach of contract, alleging that the buyer owed more. The court awarded Herrick some, but not all, of the damages sought. Both parties appealedHerrick contended that it was owed more, and Maine Wild that it owed less. Question* * * [A]n accord and satisfaction is created by cashing a check that is accompanied by a letter bearing restrictive language. * * * * Maine Wild considered the check to be the final payment. Herricks president admitted that he read the letter that included the language regarding final settlement but interpreted it as a statement made by Maine Wild not as a condition between them. He admits that he cashed the check, but that it did not occur to him that by cashing the check he was surrendering any claim under the contract.  * * * The language in the letter, however, was unambiguous. It represented final settlement, and there is no exchange of correspondence of such a nature as to create doubt as to what......

Acai Berry

...Stoneking Acai Berry Research Paper 06/07/13 Organic Acai Berries: Are They Really Just a Fruit? Acai berries have been around for many generations. They recently became popular a few years back because many people were using them as a weight loss supplements. There were many ads and commercials going around talking about how these berries are a great way to loose weight. Because of this particular media, I became interested in them. I was looking for something to help me loose weight that I had gained over the years, and a friend pointed out these new supplements that were trending for weight loss (McHugh). At first when I heard about them I didn’t think it was going to work, especially since supplements for weight loss don’t really work that well. While doing my general research I found out that not only was it used for weight loss but many other uses as well. The main use for it in the states was for weight loss and it was a hit or miss type of deal. Learning about the acai berry because of weight loss intrigued me and finding out it was an organic compound worked out perfectly for the organic chemistry research paper. The acai berry was first discovered in the Amazon Rainforest in South America by a tribe that lived in the rainforest. The people of the Amazon used the berry as a main food source in their diet because they soon realized how much of an impact the nutrients and antioxidants in the berry affected their health. They believed that the berry would help......

National Cranberry Cooperative Case Study

...randomly throughout the day, with a random amount of berries, anywhere from 20 to 400 bbls. In order to utilize transport vehicles more effectively, there should be crews scheduled differently on peak days. It only takes 5 to 10 minutes to unload a truck into a Kiwanne dumper, but the backup would occur when the holding bins were full, causing drivers to have waits up to 3 hours. The backup is not occurring in receiving, so now additional crews are necessary at that station. All feed conveyors are in use during peak times so no new crews need to be added there. However, there seems to be a backup occurring in the bagging station. Instead of keeping the fourth bagging machine as a spare, they should add another five-member team to operate the fourth bagging machine during peak hours. This would result in an additional 2,667 bbls per 12-hour period, or a total of 10,667 bbls per 12-hour period. The additional crews and adding of a bagging station would reduce the number of berries that need to be in holding, and cut down on wait time for the transport trucks. Calculations: 8,000 bbls/3 bagging machines = 2,667 bbls per machine per 12-hour period 4 bagging machines times 2,667 bbls per machine = 10,667 bbls per 12-hour period 10,667 bbls per 12- hour period means 21,333 bbls per 24-hour period 2.

Wendell Berry - the Hurt Man

...The Hurt Man Life is full of loss and you cannot avoid experiencing it and well as sorrow. As people grow up they come to realize that the world is not as it seemed to be when they were younger. They get more independent and their perspective of life changes. They will have to realize that they are not going to live forever. In the short story The Hurt Man, written by Wendell Berry and published in 2003, we meet Mat who learns all of this. During the short story Mat is growing up. He is born unexpected but he is still very much appreciated. His parents watch him closely so he does not get hurt but this change as he becomes older. At the age of five, the household gets busier and Mat is now more independent. “[...] he was curious and active, when he would be out of their sight. He would stray off to where something was happening, to the farm buildings behind the house, to the blacksmith shop, to one of the saloons, to wherever the other boys were.” (ll. 31-34) This is a perfect example of a child’s natural and healthy development. In line with them getting older their curiosity and independence increase. They do more and more stuff on their own without their parents supervision. It can be extremely difficult for the parents to let go of their children but the importance of it is huge. The difficulty comes, amongst other things, with the world being filled with danger and threats. Mat’s mother, Nancy, is doing a good job even though she has experienced a mother’s......

Black Berry vs Apple

...RESEARCH IN MOTION – THE EVOLUTION OF WIRELESS In 2007, Research in Motion (RIM) was a company that many thought was the dominant force in the wireless industry. Their signature product, the BlackBerry, was “synonymous wireless e-mail, spawning countless imitators and creating a product category where none existed before” (Castaldo, J., 2007). Surely RIM was poised for success; however, three short years later, the industry is wondering if RIM can compete with the likes of Apple and Google with their new devices running on their revolutionary iOS and Android operating platforms. The future of wireless industry is constantly improving and the future looks promising for “smartphones” with internet capabilities. The trend shows that more and more cellular phone users are now upgrading their handsets to smartphones. Statistics that tracked sales of phones in the United States showed that in January 2010, “234 million Americans subscribed to mobile phone plans”. Of these, 42.7 million owned internet-accessible smartphones, which represented an 18 percent increase over a three month period (Practical Ecommerce, 2010). RIM was one of the original companies that first changed the way we perceived what a cellular phone could do. The market is once again being revolutionized, in order to stay competitive in this evolving market; RIM needs to decide what steps to take to ensure success in the future. Background and History RIM was one of the first major technology companies to......

National Cranberry 1 (RP 1) faced by National Cranberry Cooperative during the cranberry harvesting period, viz. 1) too much waiting period for trucks before they unload berries at the RP1 and 2) too much overtime costs. There is also a secondary problem regarding grading of process berries. Half of the berries graded top quality are actually not top quality and do not deserve extra premiums paid on the top quality berries. 2.) Process Analysis We start by making a process flow diagram for the flow of berries at RP1 from the moment berries arrive at the RP1 in trucks to the moment they leave in RP1 after being bag packed, bulk loaded into trucks or loaded into bulk tins. The capacities of the various processes are based on the assumptions or data as shown below: Dumping Capacity Number of Kiwanee Dumpers = 5 Average time taken by truck to load the berries onto Kiwanee Dumpers = 7.5 minutes (Maximum being 10 and minimum being 5 minutes) Average weight of berries in a truck = 75 bbls. Dumping Capacity = 5 * 75 * 60 / 7.5 = 3000 bbls/hr. Holding Bin Capacities Bin No. 1-16 can hold dry berries only up to 250 bbls per bin. Total capacity of bin numbered 1-16 = 250*16 = 4000 bbls Bin No. 17-24 can hold dry/wet berries up to 250 bbls per bin Total capacity of bin numbered 17-24 = 250*8 = 2000 bbls. Bin No. 25-27 can hold wet berries up to 400 bbls per bin Total capacity of bin numbered 25-27 = 400*3 = 1200 bbls. De-stoning Capacity No. of de-stoning units = 3 Capacity of each......

...Workshop #4 Berry, Berry Ambitious MBA 454 Marketing Strategies BSA 529 June 13, 2011 Dr. Ehsan Salek Berry, Berry Ambitious Frozen yogurt is hot again, but with a more gourmet tone. Chains, including Pinkberry and Red Mango, are battling in L.A. and looking to expand. The story of Pinkberry’s success is really about the chain's image as a design brand. The fro-yo shops position themselves as coffeehouses, a place to experience frozen yogurt in an inviting atmosphere and linger a while. The frozen yogurt of the 1980s tapped into the fitness craze, a low fat yet still sweet substitute for ice cream. Pinkberry Korean-style yogurt comes in two flavors: plain and green tea. It is rather like Greek yogurt with a hint of lemon. The fresh, tangy, strangely satisfying flavor grows on you. With only two products, minimum staff training, a playfully modern store design and regular customers, Pinkberry franchises seem to be licenses to print money. The snack, with only 25 calories a portion, served with fresh fruit or crunchy toppings like Oreo cookies or Cap’n Crunch. Pinkberry yogurt is one of those American franchise ideas (think soup, coffee, and juice bars) that seem so obvious, you want to kick yourself for not having bought in at the beginning. The growth of the franchise has been explosive, from one Los Angeles store in January 2005 to 16 today, plus three in New York (five more by the end of summer) and, soon, six in London. It......

Berry and Blackmore

...“ideals” that Berry presents in his argument of “fundamentalism” versus “knowledge” are only memes of what we want to think instead of the memes that we actually follow through with. This ideal of life has changed from what they used to be, to things that have gone from early-morning home-cooked meals to breakfast substitutions. In the article, “God, Science, and Imagination,” Berry speaks about the idea of fundamentalism and how one thinks. Fundamentalism is the idea of strict support towards a particular belief or idea- which can explain why there are so many different types of fundamentalists. Although there are many different types, fundamentalist are all practically the same (whatever they say is the immediate truth). Connecting that to Blackmore’s idea, we can see that this fundamentalist way of thinking can act as a way of speaking. By means of that, fundamentalists believe that their claims and ideas are in fact pure knowledge. “This is the concern of fundamentalists of all kinds: religious, atheistical, scientific, technological, economic, and political. They all seek power—they seek victory” (Berry 22). In this, Berry is describing how all fundamentalists are able to seek power and control and reach out to more people with their beliefs. This could be the reason why fundamentalist speak with a strict-close minded way. “People of religion, and not just fundamentalists, can speak with tiresome confidence of knowing what in fact they don’t know but believe” (Berry......

Berries and Cancer

...[pic] |Source: |USDA/Agricultural Research Service | |Date: |January 3, 2007 | Berry Compound Thwarts Enzyme Linked To Cancer  Science Daily — Recent research by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists and cooperators has fortified the standing of pterostilbene (pronounced "tare-o-STILL-bean") for its health benefits, a compound found in berries such as blueberries and grapes, as a cancer inhibitor.  During tests employing cell fragments from mice livers, ARS chemist Agnes Rimando and colleagues in Poland found that the compound strongly suppresses a type of an enzyme that activates cancer-causing processes.  Rimando and her collaborators targeted an enzyme called cytochrome P450, which sets off a variety of compounds--known as "procarcinogens--that can turn substances such as cigarette smoke and pesticides into cancer-causing agents.  Rimando has led numerous animal studies that focused on pterostilbene and its potential benefits to human health. This includes work showing that pterostilbene can help lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease, and that the compound is present in a genus of shrubs that includes many types of berries, including blueberries.  She also led studies that found that the compound is a powerful antioxidant that shows cancer-fighting properties similar to those of resveratrol. Indeed, pterostilbene is a derivative of resveratrol, a compound found in large quantities in the......

...Impact of advertisement on consumers purchasing behaviour – Case study of Black Berry phone advertisement "They are the Black Berry boys" Index 1. Impact of advertisement on consumers purchasing behaviour 2. Case study of Black Berry phone advertisement "They are the Black Berry boys" 3. Conclusion 1. Impact of advertisement on consumers purchasing behaviour Every organization, or rather, Brand, invests a lot of capital on marketing, a major chunk of which is spent on making ads and this creates an influence on the consumer. Getting an iconic celeb like Amitabh Bachchan to speak about a product like Navratna Hair Oil, it seems like a piece of cake nowadays. But, to how much extent does these ads actually affect the consumers? Do they actually buy a product just because their favourite film-star is endorsing it? Is it possible that a product can change its image on the consumers overnight, just because of the flashy ads they just released? As being incorporated or associated with the Marketing process, advertising finds its position in every organization. Advertising can be defined as another strategy as an approach towards competitive advantage. Various advertising concepts are in the stream of the media and papers but still there is a little evidence that advertising can significantly help the organization boosts its performance. In terms of sales, it is true that the application of the......
