Fast-moving consumer goods - Fast-moving consumer electronics

Fast-moving consumer electronics are typically low-priced generic items with many comparable alternatives offering similar functionality. Examples of consumer electronics include: mobile phones, MP3 players, game players, earphones, headphones, OTG cables, and digital disposable cameras.

Fast-moving consumer goods

The profit margin on FMCG products can be relatively small, but they are generally sold in large quantities; thus, the cumulative profit on such products can be substantial. According to BASES, 84% of professionals working for fast-moving consumer goods are under more pressure to quickly bring new products to the market than they were five or ten years ago. With this in mind, 47% of those surveyed confessed that product testing suffers most when deadlines are accelerated.

Fast-moving consumer goods

Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) are products that are sold quickly and at a relatively low cost. Examples include non-durable household goods such as packaged foods, beverages, toiletries, over-the-counter drugs, and other consumables.

Fast-moving consumer goods

Many fast-moving consumer goods have a short shelf life, either as a result of high consumer demand or as the result of fast deterioration. Some FMCGs, such as meats, fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and baked goods are highly perishable. Other goods, such as pre-packaged foods, soft drinks, candies, and toiletries have high turnover rates. Sales are sometimes influenced by holiday and/or seasonal periods and also by the discounts offered.

Turnpike trusts - The growth of the turnpike system

The Acts for these new trusts and the renewal Acts for the earlier trusts incorporated a growing list of powers and responsibilities. From the 1750s, Acts required trusts to erect milestones indicating the distance between the main towns on the road. Users of the road were obliged to follow what were to become rules of the road, such as driving on the left and not damaging the road surface. Trusts could take additional tolls during the summer to pay for watering the road in order to lay the dust thrown up by fast-moving vehicles. Parliament also passed a few general Turnpike Acts dealing with the administration of the trusts and restrictions on the width of wheels – narrow wheels were said to cause a disproportionate amount of damage to the road.

Hamulina

Hamulina is an extinct ammonoid cephalopod genus belonging to the family Hamulinidae. These cephalopod were fast-moving nektonic carnivores. They lived during the Cretaceous period, Barremiarrean age. The type species is Hamulina astieriana.

Guizhouichthyosaurus - Paleobiology

Unlike other Triassic ichthyosaurs, which were small fast-moving pursuit predators, the Guizhouichthyosaurus had a body build and feeding strategy similar to Shastasaurus. Guizhouichthyosaurus is a very large suction-feeder, gaining assistance in hunting invertebrates, soft-shelled cephalopods and fish with its narrowed snout. Guizhouichthyosaurus inhabited an ecological niche similar to modern-day humpback whales, their caudal fins being reduced and its head remaining small in comparison to its body.

Canada-Israel Committee - Leadership

The Canada-Israel Committee’s operations were steered primarily by its board of directors, which composed of sponsoring organizations, representatives from various Jewish communities, and a compilation of other nationally influential Zionist groups. The board met quarterly to set, plan, and implement its agenda. Additionally, the CIC was governed by its executive committee, which consisted of nine to twelve members. In times of fast-moving developments or emergencies, the executive committee would take over the helm of the CIC and functioned under a flexible response regime.

ZU-23-2 - Service history

During the Gulf War of 1991, it was a favorite weapon of the Iraqi Army, albeit used more often against ground infantry and light enemy vehicles. They tend to use it more against ground targets as the ZU-23-2 is ineffective against fast-moving jet attack aircraft, though it was later proven not too effective as it inflicted only a few number of casualties throughout the war.

Invasion of Poland - German plan

The September Campaign was devised by General Franz Halder, chief of the general staff, and directed by General Walther von Brauchitsch, the commander in chief of the upcoming campaign. It called for the start of hostilities before a declaration of war, and pursued a doctrine of mass encirclement and destruction of enemy forces. The infantry—far from completely mechanized but fitted with fast-moving artillery and logistic support—was to be supported by Panzers and small numbers of truck-mounted infantry (the Schützen regiments, forerunners of the panzergrenadiers) to assist the rapid movement of troops and concentrate on localized parts of the enemy front, eventually isolating segments of the enemy, surrounding, and destroying them. The pre-war "armored idea" (which an American journalist in 1939 dubbed Blitzkrieg)—which was advocated by some generals, including Heinz Guderian—would have had the armor punching holes in the enemy's front and ranging deep into rear areas; in actuality, the campaign in Poland would be fought along more traditional lines. This stemmed from conservatism on the part of the German high command, who mainly restricted the role of armor and mechanized forces to supporting the conventional infantry divisions.

Independence Day Derecho of 1977

The Independence Day Derecho of 1977 was a derecho, or long-lived windstorm associated with a fast-moving band of thunderstorms, that occurred in the northern Great Plains of the U.S. on July 4, 1977. It lasted around 15½ hours. The derecho formed in Minnesota around 10 a.m. CDT on July 4 and became more intense around noon in the central part of the state. The derecho produced winds of 80-100 mph (130–160 km/h) in northern Wisconsin felling thousands of trees in the northern part of the state.

Zigzagiceras

Zigzagiceras is an extinct cephalopod genus belonging to the order Ammonoidea, that lived during the upper Bathonian stage of the Middle Jurassic. They were fast-moving nektonic carnivores.

Good in Bed - Reception

Entertainment Weekly rated it "A" and wrote, "Dealing with her prickly ex, a newly out mother, and some really unexpected news along the way, Cannie emerges as one of the most engaging, realistic female characters in years." Publishers Weekly wrote, "Weiner's witty, original, fast-moving debut features a lovable heroine, a solid cast, snappy dialogue and a poignant take on life's priorities."

Dead Meat - Reception

Dennis Harvey of Variety wrote, "A rural Irish setting and mad cow disease plot hook do surprisingly little to distinguish fast-moving but routine zombie flick". Beyond Hollywood called it "one of the best zombie movies, regardless of budget, to come out in recent years". Writing in The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia: Volume 2, academic Peter Dendle said, "A few unexpected twists and a lot gorgeous scenery distinguish this otherwise straightforward B-zed flick from Ireland."

Glove compartment - History

Driving gloves were considered necessary equipment in early cars, many of which lacked a hard top, to prevent the cooling effect of fast-moving air from numbing drivers' hands. Gloves are still considered necessary equipment on motorcycles for the same reason, although, unlike cars, most motorcycles do not have glove boxes.

High-speed camera

A high-speed camera is a device capable of capturing moving images with exposures of less than 1/1,000 second or frame rates in excess of 250 frames per second. It is used for recording fast-moving objects as photographic images onto a storage medium. After recording, the images stored on the medium can be played back in slow motion. Early high-speed cameras used film to record the high-speed events, but were superseded by entirely electronic devices using either a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a CMOS active pixel sensor, recording, typically, over 1,000 frames per second onto DRAM, to be played back slowly to study the motion for scientific study of transient phenomena.

2nd Army (Kingdom of Yugoslavia) - Background

The army's development was hampered by the kingdom's poor economy, and this continued during the 1920s. In 1929, King Alexander changed the name of the country to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, at which time the army was renamed the Royal Yugoslav Army (, VKJ). The army budget remained tight, and as tensions rose across Europe during the 1930s, it became difficult to secure weapons and munitions from other countries. Consequently, at the time World War II broke out in September 1939, the VKJ had several serious weaknesses, which included reliance on draught animals for transport, and the large size of its formations. Infantry divisions had a wartime strength of 26,000–27,000 men, as compared to contemporary British infantry divisions of half that strength. These characteristics resulted in slow, unwieldy formations, and the inadequate supply of arms and munitions meant that even the very large Yugoslav formations had low firepower. Generals better suited to the trench warfare of World War I were combined with an army that was neither equipped nor trained to resist the fast-moving combined arms approach used by the Germans in their invasions of Poland and France.

Airbus A220 - Engine issues

On 25 July 2019, a Swiss International Air Lines A220-300 had an engine inflight shutdown (IFSD) and diverted to Paris–Charles de Gaulle. On 16 September 2019, a similar accident happened just before reaching 35,000ft and the crew returned to Geneva. On September 26, 2019 the FAA issued an Airworthiness Directive mandating borescope inspections on the engines. On 15 October 2019, another engine failed and the crew diverted to Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Swiss withdrew its fleet for inspection. A software update may cause damaging vibrations of fast-moving parts, causing the failures. After those engine failures, Transport Canada issued an emergency airworthiness directive limiting the power to 94% of N1 (Low Pressure Spool rotational speed) above, disengaging the autothrottle for the climb over this altitude before engaging it again in cruise.
