The Copper Beech tree or Purple Beech tree is a really attractive tree, with wonderful rich purple coloured leaves. The Beech Tree is otherwise known as the Mother of The Woods in Celtic lore. Young trees can arrive with green leaves that will change to purple the following season. Potentially a large tree, it can grow to 120ft (36m), it is too tall to be grown as a specimen tree in the average garden. However, it forms an excellent hedge as it can be clipped closely. The leaves turn russet-brown in winter and will remain over winter if pruned in midsummer. It thrives in a wide variety of soils and will tolerate shade.

Hedging
Beech, Copper Must have a well drained soil. If your site is a bit shady, green beech is a better choice.
It is a bit slower growing than its green cousin. We recommend improving your soil with some good manure before planting to give them a boost. Plant a single row hedge at 3 plants per metre (33cms apart).

Beech, Green Beech is happy in any well-drained soil type. If it takes more than a day for surface water to drain away after heavy rains, then your soil is probably too heavy for Beech. Hornbeam is a good alternative for damp soil. Well grown Beech hedging is stockproof and it is perfect for the tops of banks. Fagus sylvatica loves the drainage and is good in wind.

and is particularly well suited to coastal situations but is not shade tolerant and does not like extremely cold positions. It is relatively fast growing at approx 30/45cm p.a.

Photinias Red Robin
This is a marvellous alternative choice for an evergreen hedge because of its brilliant red glossy young leaves, which give a spectacular display in spring and summer before maturing to dark green. It's not a particularly dense shrub, so it has some movement in the breeze - attractive for many sites but not recommended where a security hedge is required. It develops clusters of small white flowers in mid and late spring, sometimes followed by red fruit - but it is the spring foliage that sets this hedging shrub apart. Its growth rate is average, growing approx 30cm each year. Photinia should be trimmed to a formal hedge shape in spring and summer. It prefers a sunny site but will tolerate partial shade and although frost hardy young plants should be protected in winter. It will do well in any well drained soil.

Bren&Jerry Case Study

...FREEZING OUT BEN & JERRY: CORPORATE LAW AND THE SALE OF A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE ICON Antony Page* & Robert A. Katz**† INTRODUCTION The perfect duo. Ice cream and chunks. Business and social change. Ben and Jerry.1 Nobody wants to end up like Ben and Jerry’s, where soon after a multinational acquired it, key facets of its social mission were cut from the company.2 Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc. was once the darling of proponents of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship.3 It was a for-profit corporation that seemingly did not put profits first. Rather, it pursued, in the parlance, a “double bottom” line, seeking to advance progressive social goals, while still yielding an acceptable financial return for investors. It advanced its social mission in many ways, such as by committing 7.5% of its profits to a charitable foundation; conducting in-store voter registration; and buying ingredients from suppliers who employed disadvantaged populations.4 Ben & Jerry’s founders, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, held out their double bottom line approach (they called it the “double-dip”) as a model for others who wished to “Lead With [their] Values and Make Money, Too.”5 * Professor of Law at Indiana University School of Law—Indianapolis. ** Professor of Law at Indiana University School of Law—Indianapolis and Professor of Philanthropic Studies at the Indiana University Center on Philanthropy. † Thanks to the organizers of the symposium “Corporate Creativity: The Vermont L3C & Other...

103 Licensing Compan

...Leading Licensing Companies By Dawn Wilensky A combination of new and evergreen properties/brands drove 2006 worldwide retail sales of licensed merchandise. Over the last five years, we have made strategic changes to our Leading Licensors list to ensure up-to-date, accurate worldwide retail sales estimates. This year, we made yet another change. As the line between licensor and licensing agent continues to blur—with many licensors taking on the task of representing properties/brands outside of their portfolio, and many traditional licensing agents being charged with fueling power for the brands/properties they represent—we have widened our list to include overall retail sales figures for licensing agents. As a result, we have changed this feature's name from “Leading Licensors” to “Leading Licensing Companies” to better reflect the power of the licensing business. As for this year’s list, which reflects 2006 worldwide retail sales of licensed merchandise, No. 1 Disney recorded a $2 billion increase in retail sales fueled, in part, by consumer demand for all things Pirates of the Caribbean, High School Musical, Cars, and Disney Princess. Sanrio also saw a significant uptick in sales, rising from $4.2 billion in 2005 to $5.2 billion in 2006. Phillips-Van Heusen makes its debut on the list at No. 2 with $6.7 billion in sales driven by proprietary brands Van Heusen, Arrow, Izod, Bass, and Calvin Klein. Other newcomers include: Carte Blanche Greetings ($700 million); Sean......

Quiet: Power of Introverts

...MORE ADVANCE NOISE FOR QUIET “An intriguing and potentially lifealtering examination of the human psyche that is sure to benefit both introverts and extroverts alike.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Gentle is powerful … Solitude is socially productive … These important counterintuitive ideas are among the many reasons to take Quiet to a quiet corner and absorb its brilliant, thought-provoking message.” —ROSABETH MOSS KANTER, professor at Harvard Business School, author of Confidence and SuperCorp “An informative, well-researched book on the power of quietness and the 3/929 virtues of having a rich inner life. It dispels the myth that you have to be extroverted to be happy and successful.” —JUDITH ORLOFF, M.D., author of Emotional Freedom “In this engaging and beautifully written book, Susan Cain makes a powerful case for the wisdom of introspection. She also warns us ably about the downside to our culture’s noisiness, including all that it risks drowning out. Above the din, Susan’s own voice remains a compelling presence—thoughtful, generous, calm, and eloquent. Quiet deserves a very large readership.” —CHRISTOPHER LANE, author of Shyness: How Normal Behavior Became a Sickness 4/929 “Susan Cain’s quest to understand introversion, a beautifully wrought journey from the lab bench to the motivational speaker’s hall, offers convincing evidence for valuing substance over style, steak over sizzle, and qualities that are, in America, often derided. This book is......

Women

...12:06 Page 1 WOMEN, GENDER AND WORK People are not defined solely by their work, nor is it possible to ignore the effects of factors outside the workplace on a person's status at work. To seek equality at work without seeking equality in the larger society – and at home – is illusory.Thus an examination of the issues surrounding women, gender and work must be holistic. That means considering the role of productive work in life as a whole and the distribution of unpaid work as well as the myriad questions relating to employment. This important anthology brings together the thinking of leading philosophers, economists and lawyers on this complex subject. Selected recent articles from the multidisciplinary International Labour Review are assembled for the first time to illuminate questions such as how we should define equality, what equal opportunity means and what statistics tell us about differences between men and women at work, how the family confronts globalization and what is the role of law in achieving equality. There is an examination of policy – to deal with sexual harassment and wage inequality, for example, as well as part-time work, the glass ceiling, social security, and much more. A major reference on the best of current research and analysis on gender roles and work. Martha Fetherolf Loutfi has been Editor-in-Chief of the International Labour Review, a Senior Economist for the Brandt Commission and in the ILO’s Employment and......
