What The Heck is a Distribution Substation?

Distribution substation

What is a distribution substation? I suppose it could be exactly what is sounds like. Is a distribution substation the place where retailers send all their products to be picked up by trucks to be delivered to the stores where they will be sold to consumers? That makes sense to me. But I was not sure what it was so I looked it up. The Free Dictionary defines distribution substation as an electric power substation associated with the distribution system and the primary feeders for supply to residential, commercial, and industrial loads. So, I guess it is exactly what is sound like. Just more technological than I had previously assumed.

Distribution substations include a mind boggling number of parts such as electrical switchboards, medium voltage switchgear, non segregated phase bus, and Siemens bus plugs. No, I really do not know what any of those parts do individually. But I do know that together, with hundreds of other parts, they create a distribution substation.

I think we talked about distribution substations in high school. My teacher made some kind of model for the power grid layered over a town she had created from paper and Styrofoam. I really appreciate teachers like that. She was trying to teach out of the box and spent hours of her own time creating that model to help appeal to the senses of us visual learners. She was awesome. Anyway, years after high school, when I became a professional, I watched my CEO who makes a half a million dollars a year draw a picture of the power grid on the white board with a variety of colored markers. So I suppose I have no excuse for not remembering the definition of a distribution substation. But after moseying through this little blog of a memory I think it is all coming back to me. That has to be worth something, right?

Printable postcards

The first picture postcard dates back to 1870 Camp Conlie training camp in France. The card has one picture on one side. The following year, 1871, the first souvenir postcard was sent. The postcard was sent from Vienna. Maybe it said Wish You Were Here. Then during the Second World War, many soldiers sent postcards made from embroidered silk to their love ones back home. Then from the 20s to the middle of the century, most of the postcards were those that had risque images and lewd jokes, these were the saucy seaside postcards. Today, with so many changes in postcards and greeting cards, many people have started to collect them that deltiology, collecting postcards, is among the three largest collectible hobbies across the globe. Over the years, customized postcards have also played an important role in business marketing. One of the most common business postcards is direct mail postcards, such as real estate postcards. For your business, here are two important facts about postcard that you might want to consider.

First, postcard printing for marketing and advertising is less costly than other marketing and advertising initiatives. For example, compared to print ads, postcard printing will only cost your business hundreds of dollars to reach as many people as what a traditional print ad would. In fact, you can find a postcard printing company that can print as many postcards as you want and deliver them directly to the doorsteps of your target market. For local businesses, such as for local plumbers and electricians, postcard printing is therefore cheaper than any other type of advertising. Similarly, for large companies, postcard printing can be a lot cheaper because with just a few hundred dollars they can target different segments of the market across the country. They can customize the postcards, which will not cost them additional, compared to creating different ads for their different market segments. Even when compared with online marketing campaign, such as the use of social networking sites, postcards are cheaper because for an effective social networking campaign you need to reach thousands of users and they should be your target market. To do this you need to employ the services of an online marketing company.

Second, postcard printing, particularly custom postcard printing, is more effective than other forms of marketing. This is because you can reach a lot of people and the right people. In fact, you can even find postcard printing company that makes and delivers customized postcards. You can have customized postcards that will surely be read by your target market. One example is the door hangers. You can send the card to specific location or people. When people see door hangers on their doors, they will surely take a look at them, just out of curiosity. Compared to email marketing, recipients will merely send the mail to trash without reading. Some will even report it a spam. Continue your research here:

Payroll processing

Paychex is a medium sized company in Upstate New York that is traded on a national scale. In the world of payroll companies, it is significantly successful, and they are a model for companies on how to do payroll. A majority of small and medium sized business owners are looking for payroll solutions because they have been expending significant effort in maintaining their employee payroll that should and could be used to develop their product, marketing strategy, or customer service. More than a third of CPAs agree with this assertion, that entrepreneurs would be better off managing their businesses than working with payroll. Especially when working with benefits like 401(k) plans and insurance that is integrated with payroll, the business owner can avoid expensive mistakes by outsourcing their payroll services.

Employee payroll services through Paychex include a number of services that a single person cannot manage if they do their own payroll. The pen and paper system that most small business owners use causes undue work and effort to be expended with mathematics, and Paychex can offer payroll software and electronic time and labor systems that keep track of the same data. This helps to keep accurate track of labor expenses and find where the bottom line can be lowered. It helps companies to maintain better records of employees’ hours and comply with labor laws. The automation of time and labor systems also diminishes the potential for error in an employee’s paycheck or benefits. The software for employee payroll services can be customized for your company’s needs.

Their use of new technology in employee payroll services is not limited to the electronics used to track you labor expenses. Paychex offers online payroll access, so that employees themselves can access their W2 forms, stubs, and other payroll information without needing to ask the employer himself. Along with these online employee payroll services, Paychex has a mobile app for Android, Blackberry, and iOS that accomplishes similar goals on employees’ mobile devices.
