The purpose of paper conservation or restoration work is to preserve and restore works on paper and make them accessible for exhibition, sale or study. Often, the works selected for conservation treatment are aesthetically damaged, too fragile for exhibition, or they are in imminent danger due to continuing deterioration. Each art work has its own history of previous treatment, framing, and environmental exposure, and consequently the conservation and restoration of each individual work presents a unique set of considerations. Galleries, collectors, and picture framers might wish to be aware of some of the terminology, problems, and possible treatments that may be undertaken by a paper conservator.
Some media, due to inherent flaws in the media itself or due to environmental conditions, may start to crack and flake off the paper. Without stabilization, the image will continue to abrade with each handling. Flaking media should be "consolidated." Diluted solutions of the consolidator could be applied locally with a fine brush, feeding the material into the cracks and reattaching the flakes of media to the paper.
Landfill: this method involves burying off the waste and this is the most common practice for the disposal of waste around the Globe. These landfills are quite often conventional with deserted and vacant locations around the cities. In case, landfills or borrow pits are designed carefully they can serve as economical and quite sanitized method for waste dumping. However, not much effectively designed and older landfills can cost a big amount to the government not just in terms of money but also in the environmental and health issues. Apart from the general poorly designed landfill’s common problems like wind-blown debris and generation of liquid, it can also cause production of gas, which is extremely hazardous. This gas can be a reason for production of odor, killing surface vegetation and greenhouse effects.
Joint Supplier Agreement (JSA): Indicative of Stage 3 Sourcing Practices, the JSA includes terms and conditions, objective, process flows, performance targets, flexibility, balancing, and incentives.
Hub Airport: An airport that serves as the focal point for the origin and termination of long-distance flights; flights from outlying areas meet connecting flights at the hub airport.
Hub: 1) A large retailer or manufacturer having many trading partners. 2) A reference for a transportation network as a "hub and spoke" which is common in the airline and trucking industry. For example, a hub airport serves as the focal point for the origin and termination of long-distance flights where flights from outlying areas are fed into the hub airport for connecting flights. 3) A common connection point for devices in a network. 4) A web "hub" is one of the initial names for what is now known as a "portal." It came from the creative idea of producing a web site which would contain many different "portal spots" (small boxes that looked like ads with links to different, yet related content). This content, combined with Internet technology, made the idea a milestone in the development and appearance of web sites, primarily due to the ability to display a lot of useful content and store one's preferred information on a secured server. The web term "hub" was replaced with portal.
5) An Internet web site that provides a central repository for data or a central planning capability in an industry or supply network.
Harmonized Commodity Description & Coding System (Harmonized Code): An international classification system that assigns identification numbers to specific products.

Fourth Party Logistics (4PL): Differs from third party logistics in the following ways: (1) 4PL organization is often a separate entity established as a joint venture or long-term contract between a primary client and one or more partners; (2) 4PL organization acts as a single interface between the client and multiple logistics service providers; (3) All aspects (ideally) of the client's supply chain are managed by the 4PL organization; (4) It is possible for a major third party logistics provider to form a 4PL organization within its existing structure (Strategic Supply Chain Alignment; John Gattorna).
