Comment on Lawson Products, Inc. To Report First Quarter 2013 Financial Results by Staff.

As much as business owners like to think so, the product or service a company offers cannot be all things to all people. If you’re marketing a product or service, understanding who the ideal customers are, or the customers who are most likely to benefit from and buy your product or service is the key to successful sales. The customers who fall into this group of people most likely to benefit from and buy what you’re selling is the potential target market.

2. Unfortunately, public landfills still receive most of the waste in the form of broken and obsolete consumer and business electronics. The good news is that more and more modern products are actually designed to be more easily recycled, and are engineered to be easy to dis-assemble into plastics and recyclable parts.

3. Older telephone equipment used capacitors that contained substantial amounts of PCB’s which were outlawed in the mid 1970’s. PCB production was banned in the 1970s due to the high toxicity of most PCB congeners and mixtures. PCBs are classified as persistent organic pollutants which bioaccumulate in animals. Up until recently, telephone equipment, along with numerous other consumer and industrial electronics, also contain substantial amounts of lead which also contaminates the environment. Fortunately, the European standard for ROHS (reduction of hazardous substances) dictates the use of leadless soldering and components, which manufacturers in the United States have been forced to adopt in order to to business overseas.

4. Improvements are driven by consumer demand and the ability of technology to satisfy it. Cellular communications are rapidly replacing “land lines”, and IP (internet pprotocol telephones are moving voice services onto the internet, and away from dedicated copper lines. Improvements for cell phones will consist mainly of faster wireless services which will provide the ability for a cellular handset to do many things that much larger devices with dedicated lines do now, including remote video conferencing via cell phone, video on demand, and better hand-held internet access. Land based phones will also benefit from higher bandwidth, creating new devices that do much more than make and receive phone calls.

5. Telephones are, and have been very frugal in terms of energy use. In general, compare the electricity used by a household phone in a year to that of an ipod, and you will be in the ballpark. Cell phones actually require a bit more power, so saying that my cell phone battery provides 1000 milliamp hours, and at the end of each 8 hour day it requires 3/4 of a charge, that’s 750 mah per day, times 365, for 273,750 mah, or 273 amp hours per year, dividing back by 365, or 3/4 of an amp per day, and that is around 15% of the average daily use of a 75 watt light bulb; pretty small. In one year a cell phone uses way less energy than one gallon of gas.

6. I would make the phone impossible to use while driving.

Only look at rms watts. Each sub has 500 rms watts at 2 ohms. Together, they will have 1,000 rms watts at 1 ohm. (2ohm plus 2 ohms in parallel connection = 1 ohm. I know the math is backwards, but that’s how electrical resistance (ohms) is measured)

So you need an amp that can push 1,000 rms at 1 ohm.

I just did a research for someone else and found a good deal on a the amp that you will appreciate.

This is a very reputable brand, quality product, good customer service. It will work for you for many long years.

Also, call the guys at Techronics with questions. It’s my local shop. I’ve been there several times and met with the president, Sharone, and his sister, and some guys in the office. Their offices and warehouse are clean and tidy. They keep their prices low and treat customers well. They run the business right.

It is possible for your amp to fry your subs. To prevent this, follow these steps.

First, turn gain almost all the way off.

Start the engine and play a familiar song on a store-purchased CD

On the head unit, turn up bass, treble, and volume to max.

Now, open all windows and go to your amp.

Very slowly, gradually start increasing gain (turn to right)

One of two things will begin to happen:
a) either your ears will start hurting

or

b) you will start hearing distortion / noise / burping from speakers.

When you get either A or B, stop increasing gain. From that point take gain down just a tiny bit.

You are set.

Adjust your volume, treble and bass to your liking.

This is how you set the gain on the amp. It’s purpose is to protect system from permanent damage of its components, including your ears, as they are also part of the audio system.

Print this and take it with you to the car.

The only way you can do that is to sell your gift card to one of the companies that buys and sells gift cards. Most will pay you for your gift card with either a check, pay pal or with an Amazon gift card.

First note that you are given the forex rates in “indirect” form. Indirect quotes tell you the number of foreign units it takes to buy 1 unit of domestic currency (your domestic currency is the US dollar). So, using the spot rate, it takes £0.5267 to buy $1. The reciprocal ( 1 / the indirect rate) will give you a “direct” quote, the number of domestic currency units (here, dollars) to buy one unit of foreign currency (here, the £). Thus, 1 / 0.5267 = 1.8961. This means £1 = (buys) $1.8961.

Looking at the spot and forward rates….
0.5267 …0.5283…0.5299…0.5315
you see the number increasing over time…this means it takes more £s to buy dollars in the future. That means the £ is expected to weaken against the dollar in the future.
Another way to look at it is to look at the reciprocals of the spot and forward rates. 1 / the indirect quote…
1.89861…1.89286…1.88715…1.88147
Examining these rates, you’ll see that in the future the £ is worth fewer dollars. Again, this shows the £ is weakening against the dollar.

So, the answer to #1 is the £ is selling at a discount in the forward market. (It costs less, in terms of dollars, in the future, than it costs today, at the spot rate.)

#2) There are two ways to go about calculating the answer. The fastest way is to do it this way: Since the indirect quote is expressed as £/$ = 0.5267, then £450,000/0.5267 = $854,376 (I drop the cents since your answer options drop them). You’ll see that this is the same as inverting the £0.5267/$1 to 1 / 0.5267 and multiplying by 450,000…so you have 450,000/0.5267 = $854,376. The other way, is really another way to invert and multiply, but with one more step. You actually “solve” for 1 / 0.5267 first, which gives you the direct quote, 1.89861, which is the number of dollars per pound, and then multiply by the number of pounds: £450,000 * $1.89861 = $854,376.

#3) First solve for the dollar value of the £450,000 at the 60 day forward rate…invert and multiply
450,000 / 0.5299 = $849,216
or solve for the fraction 1 / 0.5299 first and then multiply:
1 / 0.5299 = 1.88715…times 450,000 = $849,216
Second, solve for the difference between receiving $s at the 60 day forward rate vs receiving $s at the spot rate today…
forward $849,216 – spot 854,376 = ($5,159)
