Background Information:
According to the National Association of REITs, “self-storage REITs have had the strongest returns out of all publicly traded REITs over the past two years. In 2011, self-storage REITs had a 35.4% return, whereas the overall REIT market realized 8% returns. Generally speaking, REITs are relatively low risk, as 90% of all profits must be returned to shareholders. Moreover, the 2013 fiscal climate looks promising for the real estate sector, as many financial analysts expect interest rates to remain exceptionally low. Interest rates are particularly relevant, because REITs use a lot of leverage and operate with considerable debt.”
There are four publicly traded self-storage investment trusts on the New York Stock Exchange: * Public Storage (PSA) (A-rated by S&P), which opened its doors for business 40 years ago. Today Public Storage is the world's largest owner and operator of self-storage facilities. The company operates over 2,200 unique and diverse company-owned locations in the United States and Europe, totaling more than 141 million net rentable square feet of real estate. Seeking Alpha writer Michael Terry, CFA wrote an excellent article on Public Storage here.

* Extra Space Storage (EXR) (not rated), which is the second largest owner and operator of storage facilities in the US. The company's properties comprise approximately 585,000 units and totaling 64 million square feet of rentable storage space. I wrote an article on Extra Space here.

This paper is intended to summarize the research findings on the current leading competitor in the market, the iPhone s5 and our recommendations on how to successfully compete and maximize profit in the smart phone market. History of Apple Apple Computers was founded in April 1976 by Steven Jobs and Steven Wozniak. The company built computers and operating systems that were revolutionary for the industry. The company has had some competition, and therefore has had some ups and downs financially. Top management in the company has changed over the years and the company had difficulty competing with other computer companies. However, in the late 90s and early 00s the company had an increase in profits because of innovative products. In 2001, the company introduced the iPod.

Analysis of 2001: a Space Odyssey

...2001: A Space Odyssey Analysis The purpose of this report is threefold. I will begin by briefly discussing my interpretation of the film, 2001: a Space Odyssey, with a particular focus on the piece of alien technology, the black monolith. I will then discuss the plausibility of the Jupiter landing/living scenes, including the accuracy of how it was portrayed and whether living on Jupiter for a sustained period of time is realistic. Finally, I will wrap up by delving deeper into the black monolith. I will discuss the plausibility of the technology and the initial reaction to the technology from life on Earth. The ending of this film is entirely open to interpretation, ranging from an explanation for Darwinian evolution to strictly religious thoughts of God or gods. Personally, I saw the black monolith as some sort of super-advanced alien technology that served multiple purposes. The first purpose, which was seen in the “Dawn of Man” section of the movie, was to assist in the advancement of an intelligent race. The monolith first appeared to the primates, before some of the early Homo species had arose. Shortly after contact with the monolith, one group of primates began to use a bone as a weapon. With the newly found weapons, one group was able to defend the water hole from another group. This suggests that the monolith had somehow inspired, whether through some sort of telepathic thought transmission or simply through touching it, the apes to begin using tools. The......

Current Market Outlook for Space Business of Space Tourism

...Current Market Outlook for Space Business of Space Tourism Abstract This report covers some potential obstacles countries and companies may face when developing space tourism programs. The biggest hurdle will be the technology; companies like SpaceX, Boeing, and Virgin Galactic have good designs, but making those designs may prove to be more difficult. Another big issue that needs to be addressed is International Space Law. Many of the treaties were written at the beginning of the space race and only apply to trained astronauts. There will need to be new or revised treaties to cover the limits of private companies and the civilians they transport to space. The third issue covered is the safety and ethics of sending humans to space for a profit. Trained astronauts go through extensive programs to ensure they are ready for the elements of space. Proper measures will need to be taken to make sure civilians will have a safe and enjoyable trip. All of these topics are addressed in detail in this report; in the end however, it is evident that a few companies are on the right path to sending tourists to space. Introduction For centuries, the idea of space has intrigued scientists and engineers who constantly searched for ways to learn more and eventually get there. In 1961, during the heart of the Cold War, Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, became the first person in space.

Creating New Market Space

...industry basically has three strategic groups in Pakistan . the first are the street hawkers and small shops located in almost every kind of locality. The second are the big store outlets like Makro , Metro HKB express etc where people buy vegetables from . the last is the tinned or canned industry. In the last category major products are olive both black and green and different types of mushrooms. What I propose our strategy should be here is that first we should target the restaurants and the big stores like makro. If we fail to convince them then our focus should be towards the major markets where restaurant owners buy these products for example Main Market Gulberg. The second category is to look across the chain of buyers .the obvious customer group are the restaurant chefs. Here what we should do is that rather to focus them we should focus all of the upper middle and upper class. We should market or sell our product in a bit posh areas where this gentry buys their vegetables from. Because they are the ones who already know about mushrooms. lower class or middle class wouldn’t know much about them certainly, even if they know they won’t be consuming them. The use of mushrooms is very limited in Pakistan because our local dishes don’t support mushrooms in them. So what we could do is that focus on oriental Chinese Thai and American dishes. We could use this idea in our advertisements i.e. fresh oyster mushrooms for your Thai and American cuisines . the first thing is......
