Shame

One more post on the Maria Callas competition, and this is as far as I'll go giving them publicity. You see, as I said in the last post, I was expecting better things from this jury. I wasn't however, counting on the organizers, and the fact -because it is a fact- that they did want to push some participants. Nevermind how I know it, I just mix in things and situations -far more than I would like to.

In few words, here's my theory on competitions. There are many kinds of pianists in these places: the great ones, who in general escape from the jury's decisions and make it to later rounds. Some very good to mediocre who have people in the jury to help them. Then, there are the mediocre who pass to later rounds in order to be sacrificed for the previous ones. Sometimes there are some lucky good ones -or even very good- who escape from all these plans and make it to later rounds as well -with much luck. In all, the results can be easily fixed -mostly in the first two rounds when usually the interest of audiences around the globe is low...

In this competition, I didn't see any of these in extended degree from the jury. Some got help, but that's normal. The organizers however, well, this is another story -it didn't however work out exactly the way they wanted. It is indeed a shame for this young Russian guy Igor Rudyn, not to be in the final. Similar things happened in the previous rounds. No international competition should want low level participants. Not that the finalists are of low level -are they the best among the participants? After having heard most of the competition -10 out of 14 in the 1st round, 8 out of 11 in the 2nd, all semi-finalists, I can doubt about that; and for a fact I know that some of the jurors are as well surprised...

Enough with them, it's the last time I follow it, I hope. I just want to listen to the finals tomorrow, and hope that it will be worthy... Cheers!

buzz it!

Properly managing the inventory allows the wholesalers to optimally utilize the warehouse. If the wholesalers are able to sell their inventory quickly they can bring in the new supplies timely and can sell the newer products to the customers and make the best use of their warehouse. Other than that using first in first out method, also called FIFO, is really beneficial for managing the inventory and making the best use of the warehouse space. Every warehouses overall size and logistical design is necessitated by individual production needs and inventory requirements. However, regardless of volume or industry, every warehouse needs several key pieces of equipment in order to function at maximum efficiency. Every warehouse will obviously have a constant need for inventory movement and relocation. To this end, pallet jacks and trans-positional equipment are designed to simplify the movement process. Pallet jacks and other trans-positioners come in a wide variety of sizes and weight certifications, customizable for space limitations and weight constraints. Whether it is transporting pallets from one location in the warehouse to another or stacking crates horizontally, a trans-positioner of some type has been designed to simply the process. Additionally, these pieces of equipment are available at every price point and level of automation. Its finally here!
