Even my friends and colleagues complain about the same unclean environments they are working with due to heavy work load and constant job pressure.

Domestic help is important for every house hold those who can afford to pay for it. They clean the house, wash the clothes, and do the daily cleansing and previous pending works. Most of the house holds depends upon them for their daily work. In Puri in most of the houses domestic help used to do various home works like that of cleansing of utilities, For the last two years their wages now been on the rise and it is on the higher side in each year sometimes they increase the wages in the month of October and sometimes they increase the wages in the month of January in the new year. Now days the number of domestic helps in the decline due to some positive government policies. There lots of money to earn from various positive government policies and for this now the trend is changing. They are now getting more than two hundred days of earning opportunities apart from other earning from various government welfare measures. This adds to the problem for various house holds. Due to the scarcity of domestic helps , there salary is on the rise and they are also now more ad more demanding and also their work standards is on the decline. They are now working at more than sixteen houses and this is obvious as how could they manage the house holds by going to various far and wide places of Puri town and the standard of work I on the decline. Every homes priority is for cleaning and for all the essential works is done by the domestic help but with increase in time the duration of the work is on the decline and the standard of the work is one the decline.

Sometimes there behaviors are also rude and if you say some rude words or some mild rude words they will complain about everything. Now it seems that this being the most worrying factor. How to get rid of it? As the more you increase the wages of the domestic help they tend to reduce the work loads and try to finish the work in a hurry. The house holds works seems to be a difficult task and how it is to be solved and how easily it can be done and finished. What should be the problem no one can solve it? As the government can not solve it as it is doing the welfare works and that too it is also extending to richer people through Adhar cards and other welfare measures. Now the next problem I to find the persons who plucks the coconut from trees. Now the new generation of coconut pucker s has been evading from their earlier possessions. Now their new generations not doing these coconut plucking professions and for this there is strenuous lack of these coconut pluckers. Now their fathers has been doing this profession and for this serious lack of coconut pluckers and all the house holds having the coconut trees is feeling the brunt of it.

Utility of Cash Flow Analysis

A cash flow statement is useful for short term planning. A business enterprise needs sufficient cash to meet its various obligation in the near future such as payment for purchase of fixed assets, payment of debts maturing in the near future, expenses of the business etc.

i) It helps in efficient cash management – Cash is the basis for all operations and hence a projected cash flow statement will enable the management to plan and coordinate the financial operations properly. The management can know from which source it will be derived, how much can be generated internally and how much could be obtained from outside.

ii) It helps in internal financial management-It provides information about funds which will available from operation. This will help the management inn determining policies regarding the internal financial management eg, Possibility of repayment of long term debt, dividend policies, planning replacement of plant & machinery etc.

iii) Discloses the movement of cash- The increase in or decrease of cash and the reasons therefore can be known. It discloses the reasons for low cash balance in spite of heavy operating profit or for heavy cash balance in spite of low profit.

iv) Discloses success or failure of cash planning – The extent of success or failure of cash planning can be known by comparing the projected cash flow statement with the actual cash flow statement and necessary remedial measures can be taken.

 

Limitation of Cash flow analysis –

Source: sunset.com via ittech on Pinterest

1) Cash flow statement can nor be equated with the income statement. An income statement takes in to account cash as well as non-cash items and therefore net cash flow does not necessary mean net income of the business.

2) The cash balance as disclosed by the cash flow statement may not represent the real liquid position of the business since it can be easily influenced by postponing purchase and other payment.

3) Cash flow statement can not replace the income statement or fund flow statement. Each of them has a separate function .

However, the technique of cash flow statement when used in conjunction with ratio analysis serves as barometer in measuring the profitability and financial position of the business.

Men are born to succeed not fail

He is 37 years and his age is catching up as a sportsman many would say. Give him the honor as they did to Ganguly, Khumble and David’s ODI retirement. He worked hard and bound to fight back soon. He will silence his critics and makes all the stones thrower at him and converted them to milestones. Be it home or down under Laxman always prevails against Kangaroos. This series may be an exception Laxman’s contribution to Indian cricket , from swash buckling knock of 291 against Australia , at Edens’s in 2001 to 176 not out at the same venue against WI has been incredible, how can media for get it ? Kangaroos are playing in their own den, let us wait, when they reach and play in India, and a potential 4-0 slot of Australia in India will be a perfect recipe as we should call that Australia is playing at home and that is why they are winning. We have seen the England won at home defeated India but failed five zero los to India. Australia will be feeling the same at India. Australia coach M. Arthur boasting about his team’s win against India but what is new at it? India is always not good playing at Australia and also M. Arthur being slot miserably as South Africa coach as lost World cup to India and must be solace his wounded sole as if he had won the world cup and is why making statements at the media. At the beginning of the series there has been talk of Hussey retirement by partial Kangaroos media , after making a century after a long gap of time now the same Australia media is saying he is the future and now they are against Laxman. Now everything is forgotten and India media is following what Australia media saying a pattern known as colonialism or should I say virtual colonialism. Can India media support these greats and suggest how to improve and be positive. Support your team in hours of crisis and this applies to former greats like Kapil Dev and Gavaskar so that they will go over this slope, nothing is impossible, remember men are born to succeed not fail. Dhoni clears the air , that there is no such move of Laxman’s retirement. Dhoni hinted that there could be phasing out of senior players. It is natural and no question over it. In the last two years Laxman was the savior as the match winner or match saver for India. He scored when the team needs most and do we forget the knocks against the Lanka or at Mohali (vs Australia) or at Ahmadabad (NZ) or in South Africa. All these efforts came in last two years. In cricket, average does not matter for real cricket enthusiasts it only matters for the media persons .Laxman played very important innings when the team needed most but surprisingly the role played by India media sees like just the average playing. In the last two years and till the recently concluded WI series Laxman always be the savior for team India. I think the memory of critics are very short , critics which included many former players whose records now been mediocre in present of these greats are now questioning the currently greats. They are saying the age is catching up with Laxman and questioning his fitness but Laxman is always a safe catcher and he is no longer in the ODI. Laxman should not be bothered by criticisms of so called critics. He is always let his bat to do the talking. He has the ability to come good in the crunch situations.

BlackBerry Curve 9380 with touch screen

It is not expensive. It has no generic QWERTY key pad. The 3.2-inch display with a 480 x 360 pixel resolution its resolution is very qualitative with only 30 % brightness gives a bright display indoors. In bright sunlight the legibility factor does not arise. The web rendering and its font’s visibility and readability is fantastic. The only negativity is the color depth as it is seen in most of the Black Berry devices. The 5MP camera lacks the image stabilization feature which is pretty normal in most of modern digital camera and smart phone cameras. The video recording resolution is limited to VGA, just like the Bold 9790 with good image quality. Due to lack of image stabilization feature Battery lasts about 1.5 days in a complete charge up. There is a 1230 mAh battery. You should charge the battery fully once in one and half days to utilize its full processing power. This smart phone has the smaller font size than to its predecessor, it is good at touch screen and a very pleasurable to use it. The OS 7 is not for the touch screen all together that is why still there is some lacunae in it. The processing power is lesser than its predecessor with 806 MHz and single core , 512 MB of RAM , 3.2 capacitate touch screen, micro SD slot up to 32 GB and the Operating System is Blackberry 7.. Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and a couple of other apps running in the background butt he OS does not fridge and this means that there is a balance between RAM and processing unit in this phone.

Watch the ball

India team is at down under down and out of the series. Australia with much fan fare is playing at home. The crux of the problem is with the mind not with the technique. Sachin is middling the ball but unable to reach the century of century. A peculiar problem as it is unique and no other batsman in the history of international cricket in such a situation. The Indian media has been always negative to the team. Especially the electronic media is too harsh on the team. Gavaskar as former great and ideal of Dravid, Sachin and Laxman is not doing any good to the team by making some harsh comments. India is losing seven losses at the green top wickets of England and Australia but in between they are winning at home and against England at home they won comprehensively. What is the problem? Australia is bowling ours batsman full length delivery and to ours bowlers the shot pitched stuff. The way main batsmen are bowled to the in swinging deliveries remains a problem. The main worry is the in swinging balls and the batsman getting out to ordinary bowlers like Siddle who earlier to this series average 30 in the test match. Hilphenaus also been dropped earlier and returning back to the side after two years and he is making merry of the batsman especially the tail handlers. Te situation of batting of India is very pathetic and the batmen are out of sorts except Sachin and Kohli.

 

This is really a grave situation but in this extraordinary situation we should not be more against to ours team. We should support ours team in this time of emergency. India can bounce back and also it is important to groom the newer talents in this point of time. Laxman’s performance in the last year is below par but we should give him a respectable exit. Shewag is a natural middle order batsman and he also expressed his view about it to bat in the middle and for this Shewag should bat in the middle order and a slow and correct batsman like Mukund or Rahanne should open with Gambhir . he next in line for one year should be Dravid and Shewag should not be given more than six months to prove this presence. Gambhir ‘s form and Dhoni;s form is worrying and India seriously needs to consider to strengthening the batting and also the mental ability. India team have to battle not only the Australia eleven but also their media and also Indian media and surprisingly all are against the team. Umesh Yadav is the shining star among the lot with fast breeze bowling at the hot Perth. Australia must be getting their own medicine with his ultra smart bowling. Ashwin is disappointing and failed to grab the golden chance to permanent his place at Indian team. Zaheer as usual is good and bowling in good line but the disappoint is Ishant who bowled his heart out but failed to capitalize in the wicket column. The coach Flethcher can be blamed partially as before him Kirstein does the good work but now he is making the performance worse.

Blogger Talking Points for Walgreens-Express Scripts Dispute

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

Express Scripts Inc has decided that Walgreens will no longer be in its network, doing so has upset thousands of customers. For the past year Walgreens has negotiated with Express Scripts for a new contract to continue as part of its pharmacy provider network. Express Scripts makes the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable. Those discussions were unsuccessful. Express Scripts improves health outcomes and lower medicine costs for American families .On Dec 31 the contract between Express Script and Walgreens ended. Walgreens is no longer element of Express Scripts’ pharmacy provider network as of Jan. 1, 2012. Earlier all Walgreens pharmacies nationwide and Duane Reade pharmacies in the New York City area are art of Express Scripts. Due to this unwanted situation in-network pharmacy benefits acquired by million of customers are now in a halt. Express Scripts’ untimely disruption action causing disturbances to patients and their health plans. This is unwarranted from the Express Scripts’ as it seems due to their action million of patients has been on the negating side of the health care and also Express Scripts is driving away the power from the innocent and honest Walgreens and they have been devoid of their wonderful duties of serving the humanity, and this only happens due to Express Scripts. Walgreens is America’s online pharmacy serving your needs for prescriptions, health & wellness products, health information and photo services. Patients covered by an Express Scripts plan now find themselves not only having to change their pharmacists, but many are having to drive farther to get prescriptions filled at pharmacies with less convenient hours for their hectic schedules. Walgreens offers more 24-hour and drive-thru pharmacies than any other pharmacy in the country. The real losses to the patients and for health every minutes bites and for this the Walgreens work has been fantastic. With Walgreens you get individual membership for only meager 5$ and every day 25$ shipping free. Walgreens is like a prescription saving club. Due to Express script's action patient are to undergo more hassle and more pain but without any gain.

 

Express Scripts makes the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable for tens of millions of consumers through thousands of employers, government, union and health plans. It operates at low cost and better health value to customers. It is the industry leader in this market segment. Express Scripts is the retail pharmacy and it gives home delivery to millions of customers.

 

During negotiations, Walgreens suggested to hold rates for a new contract flat and did not seek an increase in rates. The response from Express Scripts was disappointing as it is  insisting  to unilaterally determine contract terms and services, for example  what does and does not constitute a brand and generic drug , this is very dangerous as this can fuel bad medicine practices which Walgreens opposed . Express Scripts also proposed to reduce drastically Walgreens reimbursement rates to levels below the industry average cost to provide each prescription, that is very disappointing, and it is against human's health. It seems that Express Script is playing with the life of patients and want to earn more by making the business out of significant human lives. Costs may even go up without Walgreens because of lack of competitive pricing, additional savings by dispensing less expensive generic drugs more often than other pharmacies, and savings through 90-day supplies of medications at our retail pharmacies versus three, 30-day refills.

 

One of the major Express Script clients is Tricare; Tricare is the health and prescription drug program for America’s military service men and women. Walgreens also offered to contract separately with Express Scripts for Tricare from other Express Scripts commercial business, but these offers were rejected. Walgreens offered to contract separately with Express Scripts for Tricare from other Express Scripts commercial business, but these offers were rejected vehemently. Till to date Express Script is continuing in denial for a separate agreement for Tricare with Walgreens but Express Script is still in denial. Express Scripts continues to refuse to negotiate a separate contract for the benefit of the Tricare program and its beneficiaries.

 

Patients under an Express Scripts plan have used Walgreens pharmacies for years and have a personal relationship with their Walgreens pharmacist. In an action to minimize their disruption, Walgreens unveiled a comprehensive national effort to make this transition as smooth as possible and is doing all it can to help patients continue to use Walgreens when possible, or take care of them as they are forced to leave Walgreens in order to use their in-network coverage.

 

Among the steps Walgreens is taking to minimize the disruption:Walgreens and Express Scripts

 

    a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens

    Special January promotion for only $5, or $10 for a family membership, and receive savings on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications.

    Regular annual membership is $20 for an individual and $35 for a family.

Express Scripts acts as a middleman between pharmacies providing the health care service. Many health plans and employers are making decisions to continue to ensure access to Walgreens because they find  Walgreens prices to be competitive and believe that it can lower overall health care costs. The sad part is In Express Scripts’ case, the broker is growing profits faster than the provider of the service that is Walgreens.  When the middleman is more profitable than the providers, the relationship is out of balance.

 

Beyond the contract issues, the principal issue between Express Scripts and Walgreens is really the value of your local community pharmacy. Express Scripts wants customers to use their own mail order pharmacy business instead of your community pharmacy whenever possible. This could stop all community drugstores in your area. Community is pharmacy is like emergency services. These are often the first point of entry for many people into the health care system, and the value proposition augmented by lowering overall health care costs should be recognized by Express Scripts.

 

A Walgreens proprietary survey was taken with 823 executives and managers who are key decision makers they would not exclude Walgreens for less than 5 percent savings on their total pharmacy spend. Sixty percent of employers would not exclude Walgreens for less than 10 percent savings, and 21 percent would not exclude Walgreens from their network regardless of the amount of savings. Employer’s value having Walgreens as a pharmacy option for their employees, but Express Scripts wants to take that choice away.

Walgreens (www.walgreens.com) is the nation's largest drugstore chain. The company operates 7,786 drugstores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Each day, Walgreens provides nearly 6 million customers the most convenient, multi channel access to consumer goods and services and trusted, cost-effective pharmacy, health and wellness services and advice in communities across America. Walgreens scope of pharmacy services includes retail, specialty, infusion, medical facility and mail service, along with respiratory services.

FUND FLOW ANALYSIS

Meaning –The most commonly accepted meaning of the term fund is the working capital of the business which denotes excess of current assets over current liability.

There will be a flow of fund in case the working capital position of the company changes on account of any transaction.

Example -I- The company realizes Rs20000/- from its debtors. The transaction will reduce the debtors from Rs80000 to 60000 but increase the cash balance from the present balance of Rs 20000 to Rs40000. Thus the total current assets continue at the old figure of Rs 30000 . This means this transaction will not bring any change in the working capital of the company. It is simply a conversion of current assets in to another current asset.

Thus there is no flow of fund.

Example-II- The company sells its building having a book value of Rs50000 at sum of Rs 60000. This transaction will cash balance with the company from Rs20000 to Rs80000.The total current assets will be increased by Rs60000. Thus the transaction has brought a change in working capital position .

From the above, the following general rules can be formed –

1) There will be flow of fund if a transaction involves-

i) Current assets & fixed assets .eg. purchase of building for cash.

ii) Current assets and capital eg. Issue of share for cash

iii) Current assets and fixed liability.,eg. Redemption of debenture for cash.

iv) Current liability & fixed liability eg. Creditors paid up in debentures.

v) Current liability & capital eg. Creditors paid of in shares.

vi) Current liability and fixed assets. eg: Building transferred to creditors in satisfaction of their claims.

There will be no flow of funds if a transaction involves –

i) Current asset and current liability eg. Payment made to creditors.

ii) Fixed asset and fixed liability eg. Building purchased and payment made in creditors

iii) Fixed asset and capital eg. Building purchased and payment made in shares.

Cash Flow Analysis Vs Fund Flow Analysis

1) It is concerned only with the change in cash position.

1) It is concerned with the change in working capital position between two balance sheet dates.

2) A cash flow statement is mere a record of cash receipt and disbursement. Of course it is valuable in its own ways but it fails to bring to light many important changes involving the disposition of sources.

2) While studying the short term solvency of a business one is interested not only in cash balance but also in the assets which can be converted in to cash. This information is available in the fund flow statement.

3) It is more useful to the management as a tool of financial analysis in short period as compared to funds flow anlysis. It has rightly been said that shorter the period covered by the analysis, greater is the importance of cash flow analysis.

3) If it is to be found out whether the business can meet its obligations maturing after 10years from now, a good estimate can be made about firm’s capacity to meet its long term obligations if change in working capital on account of operation are observed.

4) Cash is apart of working capital and therefore an improvement of cash position results in improvement in the fund position, but the reverse is not true.

Inflow of cash result in inflow of funds but inflow of funds may not necessarily result in inflow of cash. Thus a sound fund position does not necessarily mean a sound cash position but a sound cash position generally mean a sound fund position.

Some people use the term fund in a very narrow sense of cash only . In such a event the two terms fund and cash will have synonymous meaning. For All You Blogs
