Raiders Shift Plans And Do A Proper Draft

At the end of the 3 day circus that is now the NFL Draft the Raiders ended up on paper with a very decent one. Either through their picks or trades they got a QB, two immediate starters on defense and two offensive linemen who are projects but great athletes. They rounded out the draft yet again with the fastest man available but took him at the end of the draft. It also indicates that the JaMarcus experiment is over at great cost.

The professionals were actually impressed. Who could have predicted this?

Just In Time Delivery Halts Nissan Production

Japan's industry pioneered just-in-time delivery as a way to improve efficiencies and control costs. Of course the problem with this is when deliveries are interrupted of even one part it can spill over into the entire production. Nissan announced that due to the volcano in Iceland deliveries of a tire pressure sensor used to monitor tire pressure and give you the warning light made in Ireland but sent to Japan production at several plants had to come to a halt.

One part made several thousand miles away that was flown into Japan has delayed production of thousands of cars for the Japan, Europe and American markets.
