Currency Risks - This Week in Supply Chain Management (26+27 / 2012)

I used the last two weeks to do a short bike trip, visiting my in-laws. From northern Germany (Bremen) to the middle (Fulda): 455km in three and a half days. My route contained virtually no ascents (beside the last 10km), but the distance was still quite demanding.
So last weekend was mostly about recovery and I have the pleasure to read through all the articles from the last two weeks. The best of which are listed below.

Information Overflow - This Week in Supply Chain Management (20 / 2012)

This week was filled with preparations for our summer vacation. This year we are going to Norway. We will start start in Bergen on the west coast and for the first week stay in a small vacation home nearby Sand directly at the Fjord. Later on we will drive to Oslo (east coast) passing Hardangervidda National Park. On our way back we will use a more northern route, but that’s still in planning.
