Das Thema soll in einen Grenzbereich der Materialwirtschaft führen, der durch die tagespolitischen Ereignisse immer größere Bedeutung für die Unternehmung gewinnt. Naturgemäß ist in einer marktorientierten Gesellschaft das verkaufs­ fähige Produkt da~ Objekt aller Anstrengungen und Leistungen. Produktion und Verkauf stehen im Blickpunkt, andere Bereiche werden als notwendig be­ trachtet, während das Gebiet der Entsorgung innerhalb der Unternehmung zu­ nächst ohne besondere Beachtung bleibt.

Example text

Make sure there is a little puddle or birdbath for them to drink from. Butterflies lay eggs that hatch into caterpillars. When the caterpillars are fully grown, they make a chrysalis, go to sleep inside it, and emerge again as butterflies. Butterfly mothers are very choosy about where they lay their eggs. They want to be sure the little caterpillars will be able to eat the plant the eggs hatch on. Plant parsley, carrots, dill, and beans for the larvae (caterpillars) to eat. Butterflies enjoy zinnias.

The date will let you know when to expect tiny plants to come out of the soil. Keep the soil moist. The plants will have two leaves in the beginning. When they get their second set of leaves, they are ready to transplant into a garden or a larger pot. When you transplant, do it gently and keep the soil in place around the delicate roots. Always lift plants by the leaves, not the tiny stem. Label them with the names of the plants and the date they were planted. Wash out an old spray bottle and use it to keep the soil damp.

In fact, it may eventually become a “grandparent” to lots of plants you start. Snip a stem, leave a few leaves on the end, and let it sit in a glass of water on a windowsill. In a few days, roots will begin. When the cutting has several roots, pot it in a small pot of soil and care for it with water and sunlight. Keep your potted coleus plants indoors in the cold months, and then set some out in the yard when summer comes. They love it indoors or out. The leaf colors will change depending upon the amount of sunlight your plant receives.
