Typically, .EPS files are used for printing, and .SVG files are used for rendering images on the Web.

When you talk about the business people who are making the biggest splashes in the current business landscape, you aren’t talking about old grey heads with years of schooling and business experience.

For example how many of you have roast potatoes as a part of your Christmas dinner? According to the official statistics the answer is more than 90%.

Businesses are reliant on the staff they employ.

Having a good staff infrastructure is key to the long term success of a business.
