Ernesto- wow a spelling error- shame on me. But let us get back to the subject at hand- a companyRead More does not distribute the profits to the employees, unless they are partners or shareholders. Not sure what business class you never had that taught you that the profit is given to the employee. #Michele- no web page equals no company. What rabbit hole did you crawl out of. Maybe they like the old ways- it got them this far. Progress is not always good- look at social media.

THEY MANUFACTURE THE PLASTIC CONTAINERS LIKE THOSE SHOWN IN THE PHOTO, NOT THE PRODUCTS INSIDE THERead More BOTTLES. Therefore they use rather expensive high volume machines. That is why they do not need a lot of employees. If they used simple slow volume multipurpose machines requiring more operator time per bottle made, they could not exist as a company because the cost per bottle would be too high.
Concerned Person April 23, 2014 at 08:56 pm
A COMPANY COULD HAVE $20 MILLION IN SALES AND MAKE NO PROFIT WHETHER THEY HAVE LOW PAYING JOBS ORRead More HIGH PAYING JOBS. Some companies make low profits and pay employees well, other companies make low profits and pay not much to their employees. -------- This varies with the product line, the market demand for the product line, how easy it is for competitors to enter that market, and how high taxes and utilities are in that community.

Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money!

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

Perhaps the only solution would be to have it made outside the USA. and have the company import it,Read More problem solved. Most Americans dont like these odors that burn the eyes etc. but they are getting accustomed to ordering them in restaurants that specialize in certain ethnic foods, then they can leave eating establishment and not have to smell it anymore. I used to live near people from india that cooked with curry all the time and had to keep my clothes in plastic bags as everything in the home reeked from the Oder all the time. They were nice people but never understood why Americans found fault with their cooking smells. Perhaps this is the case here with sriracha.

Since the average cost of tax preparation is nearly $240.00, it's no wonder that individuals andRead More small business are handcuffed. If there's one common thread in politics it's an inability to rectify a broken and weighted tax system. And it's not likely to change; because these same interests and entities are major player's in the super PACS that finance today's multi million dollar election campaigns. Elect the same people who refuse to correct the problem with existing tax complexity and the real problem will not go away. This level of evasion is nothing compared to the money that is hidden in the magicians hat, in countries like Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Switzerland, and Luxenburg, among others. Just waiting for some front man to grant amnesty to all money holding outside of the U.S. Politicians are all dishonest and should be held accountable.

This is appalling in the USA for gods sake. I know that 1 in 4 FAMILIES live below poverty levelRead More also. It is not even fathomable that in this country we would allow t his to happen or children to go hungry, without warm clothes, elderly to die alone in a little apt because they cant afford to turn on the heat or the AC; nor any agencies that go to check on elderly who have no one else, our mentally ill, those addicted, be homeless, without transportation, without jobs etc. etc. right? But we can give billions away to other countries for their catastropies, to supposedly fight their drug wars, for food, military vehicles, guns and equipment to fight their own people, and again the list goes on and on and on and of course as we also know, those who do need the money dont get it, the crooked government does. Yet we continue to give our hard earned bucks away on a daily basis. We have not even a third probably of the aid programd we used to have to help our own, thus the reason why we did not have these starving in our own country years ago. We leave our own farmers, ranchers to fight tooth and nail for a penny, and end up loosing everything they have (where their family has provided food items to the USA people for years and years, generations) to who? Back to the banks and government. While we give so much food to other countries our own people are hungry? Why do we all just sit back and let it continue? Hell our movie stars, and singers, performers who raise millions and m illions, and put in hours and hours, and hire their own crews to build in other countries should be DOING THAT IN THEIR OWN DAMN COUNTRY WHO MADE THEM RICH. Why do we just sit here people and accept that a mother with children is so poor? Then we wonder why they turn to prostitution, to abusive men, to drugs to numb the pain? There is no wondering, we have let our ignorant people put into office bring our country to a big fat nothing.

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 07:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.
