Downloads from e-newsletters March 21, 2011 Disaster In Japan Creates "First-Of-Its-Kind Challenge" For Industry. On the front page of its Sunday Business section, the New York Times (3/20, BU1, Lohr) reports "the disaster in Japan...presents a first-of-its-kind challenge," according to experts, who note that the country is "a vital supplier of parts and equipment" for a range of industries, as well as one of the world's largest economies. "Throughout Japan, many plants are closed at least for days, with restart dates uncertain." In the meantime, some businesses are struggling to cope with sudden difficulties in their international supply chains. "The good news for the world's manufacturing economy is that the sectors where Japan plays a vital role are fairly mature, global industries." However, particular industries such as electronics and computing, where the country still plays a significant role, may face deeper and more persistent supply chain problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
