Has anyone done business with Negotiation Center of America that is from California?
Yes, my wife and I were several months behind on our mortgage due to my loss of income, we had both a first and a second mortgage with WAMU & Homecomings. At first we thought there fee of $5,500.00 was steep but checked them out on the BBB and also spoke with 2 past clients. It took 4 months but they reduced our rate on our 1st mortgage by 3.75% saving us $1,235.00/month & were able to get an offer in compromise on our 2nd mortgage eliminating $65,000.00 of the principal. They were great to deal with through the very stressful process. John L

In a legal or ethical sense, any form of willful misrepresentation is considered a breach of ethics and possibly a breach of good will. The good will breach is the toughy here, as the deceived party can sue to break the contract, for damages, or both. In extreme cases, willfull misrepresentation may… be interpreted as criminal fraud. Testifying in this manner would also be perjury. That said, it would be naive to pretend this doesn't happen in the real world, from time to time. Generally speaking though (and even applying Game Theory), willful misrepresentation is a poor tactic that has a nasty tendency to backfire. (MORE)
Where can you find a conversion kit to a Ragazzi crib now that they've gone out of business Anyone done DIY conversion successfully on their own?
Answer . We are in the same situation. There is an aftermarket manufacturer of rails, you can find more information about them here: http://www.babyfurniturewarehouse.com/ecommerce/ragazziadultrail.html I'm going to order them this week, I've not tried them yet myself. . Hi, Ragazzi is back in b…usiness and you can purchase their products (including the conversion kits) at Buy Buy Baby there are stores in Paramus and Totowa NJ. They do not however list Ragazzi on their website-Buybuybaby.com. You can also purchase from Bambi baby store-Tel.#is 201-867-7634. They also have a website but again the Ragazzi products are not listed.www.bambibaby.com . 9/14/09 - The aftermarket site mentioned does not have any in stock now or in the near future. Ragazzi is not back in business, the name was bought by another company and the furniture is now made in China. The dimensions are different so the conversion kits now readily available for the new Ragazzi line will not fit the old Canadian made furniture. (MORE)
Basically, it is just to have a standard that everyone can follow, and against which you can meaningfully compare what is happening in many different markets. If there were no standard, you would have to know every exchange rate of every nation's currency in order to understand what is going on.. T…he US dollar doesn't have to be the standard, it just became so as a result of the historical strength of the US economy. Perhaps the Euro, or the Yuan will take its place one day. (MORE)

No you can't misrepresent your business in any form. If you arefound doing this then you can be sued because people relied on yourexpert opinion to make a decision to invest in your company.
this phrase in reality means that of all the businesses done in the whole world,none can be equated to that business done by America.This means that no country in the world can compare itself to America in terms of business

On or about February 27, 2009, my husband and I, signed a contract with Negotiation Center of America, Inc. or NCA #103, 3010 W. Agua Fria Freeway, Phoenix, AZ 85027; (888) 263-3952â. They charged us $4500 per modification for our home loans that were predatory loans. They promised to get mod…ifications for us and advised us to stop paying our house payments on both properties since banks won't do anything for people who are making their payments. It has been 11 months since then and we just lost through foreclosure one of our properties due to their negligence. We have repeatedly asked for our refund, minus their fee of $1250. They are still refusing to credit my Visa credit card $4500. January 14 th was the last time I spoke with them, Lauren Lewis, a representative of NCA, told me that I should make my payment to GMAC so that they wouldn't foreclose. However, GMAC foreclosed on January 14 th . We believe that NCA is a crooked business, who preys upon innocent people in dire situations. We feel they should refund all of my money of $9000 at this point since I have repeatedly told them that I want to discontinue my relationship with them. Robert Pierson, another representative, also will not refund my money even though they state in their contract that if they DO NOT get you a modification then you will get a refund minus the $1250. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY. (MORE)

Most recycling centers are private, for profit enterprises that specialize in collecting recyclable materials in various sized lots (from a few pounds to many tons) and processing it to mill specifications so it can be shipped in large quantities for consumption. An example would be a person drop…ping off a few pounds of newspaper, plastic and metal. The recycling center would separate and package (usually in a bale) the newspaper and ship it in 40,000 pound truckloads to a paper mill, sort out the plastic into various types and ship it in truckload quantities to a regrinder and send the metal in truckload quantities to a smelter. The recycling centers generate revenue from the sale of the recyclable material to the various mills that buy it. Some recycling centers charge a fee to receive recyclable materials if the cost of processing it is higher than the value of the sorted, packaged recyclables. Some recycling centers are municipally-owned or not for profit. (MORE)
This answer depends on the specific entity to which it is being referred but generally a business training center falls under one of two categories. The first is that of an academic training center that provides a structured learning environment to acquire the skills necessary to perform in the bus…iness world. Skills taught can include computer hardware and software, accounting, administrative and secretarial skills, management skills and so on. This type of training center can be located either in an institute of academia such as a college or trade school, or it can be located in-house within a company to train their employees The second type could be a business training and development center. These are for small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs who desire to start, grow or develop their own business. The focus here is on management and operations. These types of facilities offer resources to assist entrepreneurs with their business planning and development, market research and other operational needs. SCOPE and the SBA are examples of possible business training centers. (MORE)
Let's imagine that a buyer of a business had gone to a lot of trouble (or, at least, his due diligence advisors had gone to a lot of trouble) to determine the working capital requirement for a target business. I'm guessing, or at least experience is telling me, that the buyer and his advisors have b…een doing their best to find a higher than expected working captial requirement. What would the buyer do with that information i.e. the data that shows a higher than expected working capital requirement? The buyer could use the information to argue for a price reduction. This is on the basis that he needs to reserve funding capacity to cope with the working capital fluctuation. Because of the working capital fluctuation, the buyer can't afford to pay as much to the seller. For example, as debtors increase the drain on cash flow will have to be funded with extra debt secured over the business, debt capacity will have to be reserved to cope with this fluctuation, and less funds can be raised at the start of the transaction to pay the seller. http://www.financialtrainingassociates.com/ (MORE)

The word bronze is borrowed from French : bronze , itself borrowed from Italian : bronzo (compare Medieval Latin : bronzium ), whose origin is unclear. It might be connected with Venetian : bronza "glowing coals", or German : Brunst "fire", but it could equally go back to or… be influenced by the Latin name Brundisium of the city of Brindisi ( aes Brundusinum , meaning "copper of Brindisi", is attested in Pliny). However, perhaps it is ultimately taken from the Persian word for brass, birinj .  . Contents [ hide ]. 1 History . 2 Composition . 3 Properties . 4 Uses . 4.1 Bronze statues . 4.2 Musical instruments . 4.3 Medals . 5 See also . 6 References . 7 External links . History . Chinese Ding , Western Zhou (1046-771 BCE). The discovery of bronze enabled people to create metal objects which were better than previously possible. Tools, weapons, armor, and various building materials , like decorative tiles, made of bronze were harder and more durable than their stone and copper (" Chalcolithic ") predecessors. Initially bronze was made out of copper and arsenic to form arsenic bronze . It was only later that tin was used, becoming the sole type of bronze in the late 3rd millennium BC. Tin bronze was superior to arsenic bronze in that the alloying process itself could more easily be controlled (as tin was available as a metal) and the alloy was stronger and easier to cast. Also, unlike arsenic , tin is not toxic. The earliest tin-alloy bronzes date to the late 4th millennium BC in Susa ( Iran ) and some ancient sites in China, Luristan (Iran) and Mesopotamia ( Iraq ). Copper and tin ores are rarely found together (exceptions include one ancient site in Thailand and one in Iran), so serious bronze work has always involved trade. In Europe, the major source for tin was Great Britain 's deposits of ore in Cornwall , which were traded as far as Phoenicia in the Eastern Mediterranean . Though bronze is generally harder than wrought iron , with Vickers hardness of 60-258  vs. 30-80,  the Bronze Age gave way to the Iron Age ; this happened because iron was easier to find and easier to process. Bronze was still used during the Iron Age; for example, officers in the Roman army had bronze swords [ citation needed ] while foot soldiers had iron; but, for many purposes, the weaker wrought iron was found to be sufficiently strong. Archaeologists suspect that a serious disruption of the tin trade precipitated the transition. The population migrations around 1200-1100 BC reduced the shipping of tin around the Mediterranean (and from Great Britain), limiting supplies and raising prices.  . Bianzhong of Marquis Yi of Zeng , Spring and Autumn Period (476BC-221BC). As ironworking improved, iron became cheaper; and as cultures advanced from wrought iron to forged iron, they learned how to make steel , which is stronger than bronze and holds a sharper edge longer.  Composition . A Bronze flag found in Iran , 3rd millennium BC. There are many different bronze alloys but modern bronze is typically 88% copper and 12% tin .  Alpha bronze consists of the alpha solid solution of tin in copper. Alpha bronze alloys of 4-5% tin are used to make coins , springs , turbines and blades . Historical "bronzes" are highly variable in composition, as most metalworkers probably used whatever scrap was on hand; the metal of the 12th century English Gloucester Candlestick is bronze containing a mixture of copper, zinc, tin, lead, nickel, iron, antimony, arsenic with an unusually large amount of silver - between 22.5% in the base and 5.76% in the pan below the candle. The proportions of this mixture may suggest that the candlestick was made from a hoard of old coins. The Benin Bronzes are really brass, and the Romanesque Baptismal font at St Bartholomew's Church, LiÃ¨ge is described as both bronze and brass. Commercial bronze (90% copper and 10% zinc) and architectural bronze (57% copper, 3% lead, 40% zinc) are more properly regarded as brass alloys because they contain zinc as the main alloying ingredient. They are commonly used in architectural applications.   Bismuth bronze is a bronze alloy with a composition of 52% copper, 30% nickel, 12% zinc, 5% lead, 1% bismuth. It is able to hold a good polish and so is sometimes used in light reflectors and mirrors.  Other bronze alloys include aluminium bronze , phosphor bronze , manganese bronze, bell metal , arsenical bronze , speculum metal and cymbal alloys . Properties . Assorted ancient bronze castings. Typically bronze only oxidizes superficially; once a copper oxide (eventually becoming copper carbonate) layer is formed, the underlying metal is protected from further corrosion. However, if copper chlorides are formed, a corrosion-mode called "bronze disease" will eventually completely destroy it.  Copper-based alloys have lower melting points than steel or iron, and are more readily produced from their constituent metals. They are generally about 10 percent heavier than steel, although alloys using aluminium or silicon may be slightly less dense. Bronzes are softer and weaker than steel-bronze springs , for example, are less stiff (and so store less energy) for the same bulk. Bronze resists corrosion (especially seawater corrosion) and metal fatigue more than steel and is a better conductor of heat and electricity than most steels. The cost of copper-base alloys is generally higher than that of steels but lower than that of nickel -base alloys. Copper and its alloys have a huge variety of uses that reflect their versatile physical, mechanical, and chemical properties . Some common examples are the high electrical conductivity of pure copper, the low-friction properties of bearing bronze, the resonant qualities of bell bronze, and the resistance to corrosion by sea water of several bronze alloys. The melting point of bronze varies depending on the actual ratio of the alloy components and is about 950 Â°C (1,742 Â°F). Bronze is nonmagnetic. Uses . Ewer from 7th century Iran . Cast, chased, and inlaid bronze. New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. Bronze was especially suitable for use in boat and ship fittings prior to the wide employment of stainless steel owing to its combination of toughness and resistance to salt water corrosion. Bronze is still commonly used in ship propellers and submerged bearings. In the twentieth century, silicon was introduced as the primary alloying element, creating an alloy with wide application in industry and the major form used in contemporary statuary . Sculptors may prefer silicon bronze because of the ready availability of silicon bronze brazing rod, which allows color-matched repair of defects in castings. Aluminium is also used for the structural metal aluminium bronze . It is also widely used for cast bronze sculpture . Many common bronze alloys have the unusual and very desirable property of expanding slightly just before they set, thus filling in the finest details of a mold . Bronze parts are tough and typically used for bearings , clips, electrical connectors and springs . Spring bronze weatherstripping comes in rolls of thin sheets and is nailed or stapled to wood windows and doors. There are two types, flat and v-strip. It has been used for hundreds of years because it has low friction, seals well and is long lasting. It is used in building restoration and custom construction. Bronze also has very low metal-on-metal friction , which made it invaluable for the building of cannon where iron cannonballs would otherwise stick in the barrel. [ citation needed ] It is still widely used today for springs, bearings, bushings, automobile transmission pilot bearings, and similar fittings, and is particularly common in the bearings of small electric motors .
