Following the footsteps of IIM Ahmedabad and IIM Lucknow, which had conducted the computer based CAT in year 2009 and 2010 respectively, IIM Calcutta has taken the responsibility to conduct the CAT 2011 entrance exam.
Prof. Janakiraman Moorthy, Professor, Marketing at IIM Calcutta has been appointed as CAT 2011 Convener. Confirming the information, the official spokesperson of IIM Calcutta said, “IIM Calcutta will conduct CAT for this year. Prof. Moorthy will be the CAT 2011 Convener.”
Prometric, the agency which conducted CAT for the last two years will continue to conduct the test this year too. IIM Calcutta and Prometric will make the official announcement on CAT 2011 soon.
Last year’s exam, CAT 2010, was held in a 20 day test window between October 27, 2010 and November 24, 2010. The official announcement was made on Sunday, August 22, 2010. However, the news was first broken by MBAUniverse.com on July 12, 2010.
The Application process period was from August 30, 2010 to October 4, 2010. The last date for the online registration process was October 7, 2010. CAT 2010 saw the registration of 2.06 lakh candidates, which saw a dip from the last year, which was 2.42 lakh in CAT 2009.
Last year CAT was conducted by IIM Lucknow and IIM Calcutta and the CAT 2010 Convener was Prof. Himanshu Rai, Admission Chairperson of IIM Lucknow.
CAT 2009, the first computer based CAT, and CAT 2010 had some major differences. CAT 2009, being the first year of the computer based test could not deliver as per the expectation and encountered a major fiasco. Being the first year of the computer based test, the CAT 2009 exam reported several kinds of technical glitches such as server crash, computer screen getting blank etc. in various test centers all over India. This compelled IIMs and Prometric to schedule retest for the candidates who faced such tribulations. Then also, many candidates claimed that in spite of having an unsatisfactory testing experience, they were not allowed to take a retest, or worse still, did not receive any response from Prometric and IIM.
The schedule of CAT 2009, which was originally a 10 day schedule from November 28 to December 7, 2010, was further extended for a day, December 8, 2010. The retests were scheduled on January 30 and 31, 2011.
To avoid the technical glitches faced in the first ever computer based CAT in 2009, Prof. Himanshu Rai decided to have a longer duration for the CAT exam. Instead of 10 consecutive days, the test was held in 20 days.

The Federal Reserve released its monthly minutes yesterday, and for the first time in recent memory, some parts of the outlook were fairly chipper. “Financial market conditions,” it states, have “generally strengthened, and surveys and anecdotal reports pointed to a pickup in household and business confidence.”
One piece of data that caught my attention was the Fed’s unemployment expectations. In an upward revision from its last meeting, the Fed now expects the jobless rate to be between 9.2% and 9.6% by late this year.
These are interesting numbers when compared with the Treasury’s recently completed stress test. That test which was used to determine whether banks were adequately capitalized under a worst-case scenario assumed that 2009 unemployment would fall between 8.4% in a baseline scenario and 8.9% in the worst-case scenario.
In other words, the Fed’s baseline outlook is grimmer than the Treasury’s worst-case outlook. These funny inconsistencies remind us why economics is an art, not a science.
Why fret over a handful of basis points, you say? Simple: According to some Fitch Ratings analysis, there’s a historical one-to-one correlation between unemployment and prime credit card charge-offs. That is, if the unemployment rate doubles, so does the credit card charge-off rate. It’s even worse for lower-quality cards.
When you’re talking about numbers this big, an increase in the charge-off rate of a few dozen basis points is nothing to sneeze at. And since the stress test’s goal was to adequately capitalize banks, the thought that more money may need to be raised in the future doesn’t seem far-fetched.
Will it be the end of the world for banks? For most, no.
But when the Federal Reserve’s own projections challenge the Treasury’s stress test by what could equal billions of dollars of losses for several banks, there’s yet more reason to wonder whether the test was more of a confidence campaign than an objective and realistic analysis.

Each year seems to bring another 365 days of accumulation of items which pose a situation of needing more room to keep everything. Both home and business can experience this phenomenon, and when it isn’t practical to add on another room, you might want to consider storage Little Rock.
There can be several reasons for needing new furniture, even when there is nothing wrong with the old furniture. However, each item takes up room and the old stuff need to be kept somewhere, and such items like dishes and clothing are often in need of a safe place to be kept.
A handy tip on maximizing the capacity of your unit is to use wall studs and plywood to create shelving along the sides and rear of the unit. Rip each sheet of plywood down the middle to make the shelving. Use these strips for side shelving and then create an attic with the remainder to almost double the available area.
Households and businesses have paper records which need to be kept, at least so many years, for tax purposes. These require a place that is dry, and it could be a good idea to examine the interior ceiling of your unit to make sure there are no signs of rain leaking in.
Such vehicles as cars, boats and RVs may need a place to be stored while not in use. Some facilities have special parking for these needs, and some provide enclosed units which can protect the vehicles from the abuse of weather conditions. Take measurements to determine if there is sufficient room to move around each vehicle.
If you have a portable generator, some facilities will allow you to rent a unit for making some types of crafts, or products, that you sell. By taking a little time to ask the right kind of questions you may be able to expand operations without a huge investment.
One of the unique things about storing your belongings with Brandon Moving and Storage Little Rock is that our storage is full service. (http://www.brandonmoving.com/storage)

The original Burlington Coat Factory store in Burlington, New Jersey with previous logo.
The company was founded in 1924 as “Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation”, a wholesaler of ladies coats and outerwear. The modern company was formed in 1972 when Monroe Milstein purchased a warehouse in Burlington, New Jersey, and started selling coats and outerwear. The company started gradually adding apparel, including suits, shoes, and accessories, and presently has even branched out to include baby items and linens, all clothing at considerable discount to some of its competition. MJM Designer Shoes and Cohoes Fashions are separate stores in the Burlington Coat Factory family. In 2007, the company announced that three of the seven Cohoes stores will close, and two of the remaining Cohoes stores will be converted to Burlington Coat Factory. The fate of the other two Cohoes stores is unknown.
Burlington Coat Factory store in Hoboken, New Jersey with ’70s-’80s logo.
Under investigation from animal welfare organization Humane Society of the United States, Burlington Coat Factory has been accused of labeling real fur products as “faux fur”. The company agreed to pull the false advertisements after an undercover investigation revealed “faux fur” as actually made from the pelts of animals killed in China. Burlington Coat Factory’s coats have also been found to contain dog pelts.
Burlington Coat Factory’s logo is often supplemented with the tag “Not Affiliated with Burlington Industries.” When Burlington Coat Factory settled a trademark dispute with fabric maker Burlington Industries in 1981, Burlington Coat Factory agreed to say in advertisings it does to this dayhat the two companies are not affiliated, even though Burlington Industries ceased operations in 2004.
By late 2009, the “not affiliated” disclaimer had disappeared from TV commercials.
Competitors to Burlington Coat Factory include T.J. Maxx, Ross Stores, and Filene’s Basement. A key difference between Burlington Coat Factory and other off price stores is that Burlington Coat Factory features more of a traditional department store layout than its competitors.
In 2006, after changing ownership, the company for the first time began offering cash and credit card refunds. Prior to this policy change, the only refunds were in the form of store credit, regardless of whether the customer had a receipt.
Departments and services
A typical Burlington Coat Factory store includes menswear, sportswear, accessory, youth, and shoe departments. Most stores have two specialty departments. “Luxury Linens” sells linen and furniture items, as well as housewares and home decor items. The “Baby Depot” sells a variety of baby furniture and equipment and offers a baby registry service. Many stores also provide tailoring services.
