After the 2008 economic crisis, Americans advocated transparency in order to dissuade the government and private sector from economic mismanagement and unethical practices. This project examines the impact of transparency on sourcing-driven profits in textiles and apparel through duty reductions and social compliance. By synthesizing a wide range of scholarly sources, the researcher confirms that transparency serves its purpose as intended by the public to encourage ethical behavior. However, the corporate motivation towards improved ethics is not entirely explained by an increased morality and/or attempt to regain public faith. If companies maintain a transparent supply chain, they can take advantage of government programs that eliminate import duties of up to 37%. Transparency also enhances profit by reducing reputational risk through improved corporate accountability, which encourages businesses to monitor their supply chain in order to prevent substantial sourcing losses caused by negative publicity from poor social compliance.

This article, from the point of knitting principle, fabrics physical properties, discusses transfer stitch design and knitting technology by being connected to the fashion trend. The text,combining the yarn property, the machine property, after-finish processing, analyses different texture effects of the knits which is applied with cardigans design, including hollow effect, concave-convex effect, horizontal ripple effect, vertical twist effect. It' s helpful for sweater designers to reform the traditional knit structures and connect the design of the knit structure with the yarn, fashion trend and to design the knitted production with distinct artistic styles.

In order to discuss mass transfer behaviors between volatile organic compound (VOC) and triethylene glycol (TEG) solutions affected by surface tension and equilibrium process. The packed-bed absorption system and the equilibrium system were designed. TEG solution was chosen as the working solution in this study, and the tested VOCs included methanol, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), toluene, and ethyl ether. Experimental results showed that the order of absorption performances was methanol, MEK, toluene, and ethyl ether in the initial concentrations of VOCs were 24.05% mol and 14.50% mol. This result agreed with the prediction by the equilibrium concentration. Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Source

This article, from the point of knitting fabric weaving principle, analyses the methods of forming transformed loop length structure and discusses transformed loop length structure design and knitting technology by being connected with the fashion trend. The text uses the properties of yarns to explore different texture effects, such as, stripeseffect and change, bar effect and change, block hollow effect, blistering effect. It's helpful for sweater designer to reform the traditional knit structures and connect the design of the knit structure with the yarn, fashion trend and to design the knitted production with distinct artistic styles.

The new intermediate 4-hydroxy-9-methyl-2-oxo-7-phenyl-2(1H)-pyrido-[2',3': 4,5]thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidine has been synthesized in a simple single step from thioxopyrimidine. Six novel (4-substituted-phehyl)azo-pyrido[2',3':4,5]thieno[2, 3-d]pyrimidin-6-(5H)-one dyes were also obtained by coupled 4-hydroxy-9-methyl- 2-oxo-7-phenyl-2(1H)-pyrido[2',3':4,5]thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidine with appropriate diazotized arylamines. The dyes were applied to polyester and polyamide fibers as disperse dyes for creating hues ranging from orange-yellow to orange-red.The absorption spectral characteristics were correlated with substituted of dyes and solvent polarity. The results indicate that the introduction electron-donating group (OCH3) into the diazonium component resultsin hypsochromic shifts in DMF while they result in bathochromic shifts in THF. Their fastness properties and color assessment are also discussed. Source
