Keeping up with the growth was becoming a problem for a privately owned Chinese financial services company. Although it easily lured business from state-owned competitors, low skill levels and weak accounting systems threaten the company’s cash flow. Moreover, poorly invested assets were delivering inadequate returns.
Hence, you have been assigned over an existing project to upgrade the IT system to allow for an expansion. Specifically, the IT upgrade will enable the company to serve more competitors, expand the product line, gain market share, and win more licenses.
You’ve determined the following information so far: Activity X has an early start of day3, early finish of day6, and a late finish of day10. Activity Y is being performed by resource that had been very difficult to obtain. The CPI of the project is 1.2 and the SPI is 1.3.
Midway through your project, your client has requested additional deliverables to your project. Fortunately, you have already determined that this functionality will only add one extra week to the critical path. To accommodate this request, you’ve determined that you could fasttrack the schedule to recover one extra week. Which of the following should you perform NEXT?

Precaution while using Homeopathy

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is an alternative to strong medications that have chemicals. If you do not want to opt for allopathy, homeopathy is the best natural way to treat a health problem. Homeopathy can cure a simple infection or severe disease (sometimes much better than allopathy). However, homeopathy is a gradual remedy to treat health issues and anyone can prescribe to this natural medications. But, there are few precautions that you must keep in mind before taking homeopathic medicines.

The plural ending -(e)s has three different pronunciations.
  • After one of the 'sibilant' sounds /s/, Izl, ll, /3A /tj/ and /d3A -es is pronounced hzl.
    buses/'bASiz/ crashes /'kraefiz/ watches/'wotjiz/
    quizzes/' kwiziz/ garages/'gaera:3iz/ br/dges/'brid3iz/
  • After any other 'unvoiced' sound (/pA /f/, /0/, /t/ or /k/), -(ejs is pronounced /s/.
    cups /kAps/ bafbs /ba:0s/ boo/cs/buks/
    coughs /kofs/ plates /pleits/
  • After all other sounds (vowels and voiced consonants except Izl, l$l and /d3/), -(e)s is pronounced Izl.

  • Exceptions:
