people realized how important it was for launching the commercialization of biotechnology. In that patent, Dr. Ananda Chakrabarty, who was at G. E. at the time, claimed an organism that would digest oil. The invention was never commercialized, but it told the world that this field was going to be important and there were going to be commercial opportunities. An investment in trying to understand the biochemistry of life would pay off in the sense that the intellectual property could be protected. Within four months (October 14, 1980), the biotechnology company Genentech went public and jolted Wall Street with a rise in its stock price from $35 to $71 1/4.

S. —and one located in a country presenting considerable cost challenges for aerospace.

Initial Impression

Start Shipping Today Case Study Initial Impression Decreases Shipping Costs and Increases Delivery Speed with GSO’s Next-Day Ground and Freight Service Initial Impression is a distribution company specializing in promo¬tional products such as mugs, shirts, hats, pens, magnets, tents, and water bottles. Finding the ideal delivery provider to service their shipments at a cost-effective price and with a high level of service was of utmost importance. Challenges Excessive accessorial fees imposed by the National carriers were putting a major dent on the bottom line, with constant fee increases that seemed to constitute a considerable portion of their total shipping costs Next-day delivery was critical for most of their West Coast customers, but overnight shipping via the national carriers would mean paying next-day air rates which was cost-prohibitive Dimensional weight pricing changes had significantly increased costs, especially since the company ships low weight items such as water bottles on a regular basis Shipping multiple packages to single destinations often resulted in split shipments.

Preparing to relax

The theatre industry has recently seen a vast improvement in accessibility for those with learning and sensory disabilities, including children and adults on the autistic spectrum. Relaxed performances (sometimes called autism-friendly performances) are for families living with autism spectrum conditions, learning disabilities or other sensory and communication impairments. They support new audiences by adjusting the environment, both in the auditorium and on stage, to help make families feel at ease. The Relaxed Performance Project 2013 brought the practice into the spotlight, and collaborations between theatre organisations and experts such as the National Autistic Society, the West Yorkshire Playhouse (who pioneered this new approach), and the Unicorn Theatre have proven particularly successful.
