Frazier Allen: Why Holiday Shopping Begins in Summer

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Big-box retailers increasingly push consumers to forget the date on the calendar and purchase back-to-school items, pumpkins and Christmas trees in the same shopping trip. Known as “Christmas Creep,” this early arrival of the holidays is a tactic retailers commonly employ in their race against time toward a profitable holiday season.

As much as 30 percent of a store’s annual sales can come during the holiday season, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF), the largest retail industry trade association. Stocking holiday merchandise sooner gives retailers a jump on the competition and extends the amount of time consumers have to buy, for good reason.

Discover the reasons retailers start the holidays sooner and how those decisions impact store operations.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Fort Jackson National Cemetery

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColumbia, SC – On a recent trip to South Carolina, my first, I was rolling down the interstate when I noticed a road sign for the Fort Jackson National Cemetery.

I had to visit.

I’m not a history buff, in fact it wasn’t one of my favorite courses in school, but there’s just something about being able to be among those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me. To be able to look out across the field at all the headstones and try to just think about what they went through. To think about how they laid down their life.

NASA uses 4-D Printing to create Metal Fabrics for Space

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Raul Polit Casillas grew up around fabrics. His mother is a fashion designer in Spain, and, at a young age, he was intrigued by how materials are used for design.

Now, as a systems engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, he is still very much in the world of textiles. He and his colleagues are designing advanced woven metal fabrics for use in space.

These fabrics could potentially be useful for large antennas and other deployable devices, because the material is foldable and its shape can change quickly.

This metallic "space fabric" was created using 3-D printed techniques that add different functionality to each side of the material. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
