Case study: How PepsiCo innovates its packaging to make it increasingly sustainable, minimizing PepsiCo’s impact on the environment

According to the U.S. EPA, in most parts of the developed world, packaging constitutes as much as one-third of the nonindustrial solid waste stream. As consumption increases with higher living standards, more countries are seeing significant growth in their packaging waste. While most packaging is recyclable, recycling rates remain lower than expected.

Abstract

Packaging materials represent a significant portion of PepsiCo’s supply chain spend. Reducing the amount of packaging used for PepsiCo products both helps to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and reduces costs for the company. PepsiCo is also constantly working to design more recyclable packaging to increase recycling rates globally. After measuring a

3 Solutions for Adults with Asperger's Syndrome - Juanita P. Lovett
Auteur : Juanita P. Lovett
Genre : Health & Fitness
Thomas Edison. Albert Einstein. Half of NASA. These are all extremely intelligent, successful adults who made great contributions to society and who are also suspected of having the developmental disorder called Asperger Syndrome. This relatively new diagnosis is being increasingly applied to both children and adults-in fact, it is now seen as running in familes. There are a lot of books on how to successfully raise children with AS, but until now, adults were left to figure it out on their own.
Dr. Juanita Lovett specializes in treating adults with AS and working with their families. In this book she shows those adults and their loved ones how to maximize the benefits of AS (including intense concentration, above-average intelligence, and high creativity) while minimizing the drawbacks (including lack of social skill, inability to connect emotionally with others, and propensity tow

It's an important and thought-provoking explanation of how by simply appreciating the marvelous pigness of pigs, we are celebrating the Glory of God.
As a man of deep faith and student of the Bible, and as a respected and successful ecological family farmer, Joel Salatin knows that God created heaven and earth and meant for all living organisms to be true to their nature and their endowed holy purpose. He intended for us to respect and care for His gift of creation, not to ravage and mistreat it for our own pleasure or wealth.

20 Maximizing Virtu, Minimizing Fortuna - Medha Sharma
Auteur : Medha Sharma
Genre : Study Aids
Every school across the world has that kid. The one who has perfect grades, is president of a million clubs, plays two varsity sports, has stellar test scores, and somehow seems to be getting 10 hours a sleep a night? “This kid is superhuman,” you tell yourself. “There’s no way I could do that.” Well, think again! This book contains the formula for academic success without burning out.

Machiavelli coined the term virtu as that which is in your control, and fortuna is what you leave up to fate. Living stress-free is easy—all you have to do is maximize what is in your control, and minimize the stakes you leave up to the cards you are dealt.

Simple, right? Unfortunately, placing everything in your control takes time, which not many of us have. This book will help you balance your time--juggling activities and sleep while streamlining your study sessions to

21 Minimizing the Expectation Gap (Manuscripts) - Academy of Accounting and Financial Studies Journal
Auteur : Academy of Accounting and Financial Studies Journal
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
ABSTRACT Given the growing list of financial reporting scandals (Enron, WorldCom, Parmalat, etc.), financial reporting is once again at a crossroad (Sutton, 2002, 319). Similarly, the auditing "expectation gap" continues to exist (McEnroe & Martens, 2001) and the investing public is again challenging the auditing profession to develop mechanisms to increase audit effectiveness and thus restore confidence in independent audits (Sutton, 2002). Thus the auditing profession again finds itself amidst a crisis and again it needs to look inward to restore confidence in financial reporting, in general, and the independent audit, specifically. In this regard, we analyze the expectation gap with respect to illegal acts in an effort to improve audit effectiveness.

22 An Exact Algorithm for the Unbounded Knapsack Problem with Minimizing Maximum Processing Time. - Journal of Computer Science
Auteur : Journal of Computer Science
Genre : Computers
INTRODUCTION One of the most frequently used decision making that operations researchers must deal is to decide which subset of n items or projects should be selected such that the total profit sum of the selected items or projects is maximized, without exceeding the capital budget, referred generally as the knapsack problem (KP). This problem can be formulated as a mathematical model (an integer linear program) and is one of an NP-hard combinatorial optimization problem by which can be solved successfully by various exact algorithms. The commonly used techniques are the dynamic programming and branch-and-bound methods and the branch-and-cut and branch-and-price methods as described in Toth(1). This kind of problem can be applied and arises in many real world situations. In the following, we will provide a historical overview of this problem and various involved algorithms.

DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement the requirements for minimizing the use of materials containing hexavalent chromium in items acquired by DoD (deliverables and construction materials hereafter referred to as deliverables). Hexavalent chromium is a chemical that has been used in numerous DoD weapons systems and platforms due to its corrosion protection properties. However, hexavalent chromium is a known carcinogen. This rule codifies a DoD policy for addressing the serious human health and environmental risks related to the use of hex

25 A Call to Action for Social Work: Minimizing Financial Hardship for Families of Children with Special Health Care Needs (National HEALTH LINE) - Health and Social Work
Auteur : Health and Social Work
Genre : Health & Fitness
The social and economic burden of long-term illness and chronic conditions is not equitably distributed: Most people have moderate health care needs, and the personal cost of meeting these needs is correspondingly affordable. For a minority of the population, the reverse is also true; for example, research has affirmed the association between poverty and disability (Emerson & Hatton, 2008; Lustig & Strauser, 2007; U.S. Census Bureau, 2002). Among families caring for children with disabilities (that is, those with functional limitations in one or more domains), the social and economic burden of the child's special health care needs is significant (Bauman, Silver, & Stein, 2006; Boyle, Decoufle, & Yearginallsopp, 1994; Meyers, Lukemeyer, & Smeeding, 1998; Parish & Cloud, 2006; Parish, Cloud, Huh, 8: Henning, 2005; Robbins, Dollard, Armstrong, Kutash, & Vergon, 2

27 Minimizing Spurious Tones in Digital Delta-Sigma Modulators - Kaveh Hosseini & Michael Peter Kennedy
Auteur : Kaveh Hosseini & Michael Peter Kennedy
Genre : Engineering
Digital Delta-Sigma Modulators (DDSMs) are widely used in frequency synthesizers and oversampled digital-to-analog converters. In fact, they are more widely used commercially that their analog counterparts.  This book describes several  DDSM architectures, including multi stage noise shaping (MASH), error feedback modulator (EFM) and single quantizer (SQ)-DDSM modulators, with a focus on predicting and maximizing their cycle lengths. The authors aim to demystify an important aspect of these particular DDSM structures, namely the existence of spurs resulting from the inherent periodicity of DDSMs with constant inputs.  Simulink and MATLAB models and code are presented in Chapters 2–5 to enable the reader to reproduce the results in this work and to explore further. These examples will also be helpful for first-time designers of DDSMs.

29 Maximize Resources, Minimize Legal Costs: The Key to Minimizing Legal Expenses is Understanding That Lawyers have to Sell Their Time (Strong Franchise Relations Yield Great Benefits) - Franchising World
Auteur : Franchising World
Genre : Marketing & Sales
If you are a franchisor or a franchisee, the odds are good that you have utilized the services of a lawyer at some point in your franchise career. Odds are also good that you have received one or more bills for those legal services. As you reviewed those bills you may have thought as Shakespeare wrote in King Henry VI: "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers." But let's be fair, lawyers must sell their legal services just as franchisees have to sell their products or services. Lawyers stay in business by billing for the time required to produce a written product such as a franchise disclosure document, or the time spent giving verbal advice, as when they advise their client on how to deal with a defaulting franchisee. This time is sold as billable hours recorded in increments of time between six to 15 minutes, depending on the law firm's policies. The client who keeps this

30 Action-minimizing Methods in Hamiltonian Dynamics (MN-50) - Alfonso Sorrentino
Auteur : Alfonso Sorrentino
Genre : Mathematics
John Mather's seminal works in Hamiltonian dynamics represent some of the most important contributions to our understanding of the complex balance between stable and unstable motions in classical mechanics. His novel approach—known as Aubry-Mather theory—singles out the existence of special orbits and invariant measures of the system, which possess a very rich dynamical and geometric structure. In particular, the associated invariant sets play a leading role in determining the global dynamics of the system. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to Mather’s theory, and can serve as an interdisciplinary bridge for researchers and students from different fields seeking to acquaint themselves with the topic.

Starting with the mathematical background from which Mather’s theory was born, Alfonso Sorrentino first focuses on the core questions the theory aims to answ

Marriage
34 Minimizing Marriage - Elizabeth Brake
Auteur : Elizabeth Brake
Genre : Philosophy
Even in secular and civil contexts, marriage retains sacramental connotations. Yet what moral significance does it have? This book examines its morally salient features -- promise, commitment, care, and contract -- with surprising results. In Part One, "De-Moralizing Marriage," essays on promise and commitment argue that we cannot promise to love and so wedding vows are (mostly) failed promises, and that marriage may be a poor commitment strategy. The book contends with the most influential philosophical accounts of the moral value of marriage to argue that marriage has no inherent moral significance. Further, the special value accorded marriage sustains amatonormative discrimination - discrimination against non-amorous or non-exclusive caring relationships such as friendships, adult care networks, polyamorous groups, or urban tribes. The discussion raises issues of independent i

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY In an era when healthcare organizations are beset by intense competition, lawsuits, and increased administrative costs, it is essential that employees perform their jobs efficiently and without distraction. Deviant workplace behavior among healthcare employees is especially threatening to organizational effectiveness, and healthcare managers must understand the antecedents of such behavior to minimize its prevalence. Deviant employee behavior has been categorized into two major types, individual and organizational, according to the intended target of the behavior. Behavior directed at the individual includes such acts as harassment and aggression, whereas behavior directed at the organization includes such acts as theft, sabotage, and voluntary absenteeism, to name a few (Robinson and Bennett 1995).

37 Minimizing the Impact of Layoffs on Front-Line Managers: Ensuring That Layoffs are Conducted Fairly can Help Reduce Negative Feelings Among Managers Who Must Give Notice to Workers (Report) - The Journal of Employee Assistance
Auteur : The Journal of Employee Assistance
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
As we enter what could possibly be a deep recession, we can expect to see a surge in the number of mass layoffs. A long line of research has established that being laid off can produce psychological, economic, and social distress. (1) More recently, research has shown that "survivors"--those who have witnessed the layoffs of co-workers but remain employed--are not spared, often experiencing heightened job insecurity, anxiety, and stress and, as a result, sometimes suffering damage to their physical and psychological well-being. (2) Mass layoffs also unsettle the organizational climate as fear, uncertainty, and even anger fray the emotional bonds that link employees to their supervisors and their organizations. We know much less, however, about the impact of layoffs on the frontline managers who have to carry them out. Understanding their reactions is important for two reasons. First,

40 Minimizing the Risk of Infection in the Operating Department: A Review for Practice (Clinical Feature) (Report) - Journal of Perioperative Practice
Auteur : Journal of Perioperative Practice
Genre : Health & Fitness
Introduction Despite the ever-changing nature of advances in technology, surgery and microbiology, it is the purpose of this paper to provide an overview of methods by which the risks of infection in the operating department may be minimized. Furthermore, the broad and diverse speciality of controlling infection which dominates the operating department perpetuates the continual implementation of preventative strategies whose familiarity to the practitioner may inadvertently breed a complacency to be avoided. Subsequently this paper also serves as a generic refresher and influential guide for the registered professional and student alike in reviewing practice--a measure never to be exhausted. From the history of infection control to the process of waste disposal, areas of discussion include: the principles of microbiological aspects, how infection is transmitted, preventing and control

41 Minimizing Conflict Through Restorative Conferencing - Edna Fenceroy
Auteur : Edna Fenceroy
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
The restorative conferencing approach is a precise and
peaceful alternative to resolving disagreements. It promotes
mutual respect for the opinions of others by understanding
opinions are beliefs. Perceptions are real to the person
holding them, but are not necessarily factual. Allowing for
the opinions of others does not give your approval of their
behavior or principles; it paves the way for a mutual and
better understanding of the dispute.

Minimizing and Exploiting Leakage in VLSI Design

Nikhil Jayakumar, Suganth Paul, Rajesh Garg, Kanupriya Gulati and Sunil P. Khatri

Power consumption of VLSI (Very Large Scale Integrated) circuits has been growing at an alarmingly rapid rate. This increase in power consumption, coupled with the increasing demand for portable/hand-held electronics, has made power consumption a dominant concern in the design of VLSI circuits today. Traditionally, dynamic (switching) power has dominated the total power consumption of an IC. However, due to current scaling trends, leakage power has now become a major component of the total power consumption in VLSI circuits. Leakage power reduction is especially important in portable/hand-held electronics such as cell-phones and PDAs.

This book presents techniques aimed at reducing and exploiting leakage power in digital VL

The Law Library presents the complete text of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement - Minimizing Use of Materials Containing Hexavalent Chromium (US Defense Acquisition Regulations System Regulation) (DARS) (2018 Edition).
Updated as of May 29, 2018

DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement the requirements for minimizing the use of materials containing hexavalent chromium in items acquired by DoD (deliverables and construction materials hereafter referred to as deliverables). Hexavalent chromium is a chemical that has been used in numerous DoD weapons systems and platforms due to its corrosion protection properties. However, hexavalent chromium is a known carcinogen. This rule codifies a DoD policy for addressing the serious human health and environmental risks related to the use of hex

47 Restraints in Dementia Care - Atul Sunny Luthra
Auteur : Atul Sunny Luthra
Genre : Nursing
Your best tool to optimize patient care by minimizing restraint use

Frontline nurses face fraught decisions every day about whether and how to use restraints in dementia care. They need to consider many complicated issues: legislation governing the use of restraints, the policies of health-care facilities, the expectations of families, and—most importantly—the well-being, dignity, and safety of patients and care providers.

Frontline nurses need the right support to navigate decisions about restraint use.

Dr. Atul Sunny Luthra and his colleagues have developed an algorithm to provide that support. Their work comes from focus-group consultations with frontline staff, a review of current literature on restraint use, and a clear summary of key legislation. The algorithm’s systematic approach ensures restraints are a last-resort m
