Many companies use accounts-receivable financing, also known as invoice factoring, as a way to fund their companies. The process works by selling your receivables (invoices) to a third party (factoring company) at a discount in exchange for immediate payment. With invoice factoring and accounts-receivable financing, there is no more waiting on customer payment.

Famous 80’s vocalist Belinda Carlisle once sang that “heaven is a place on earth.” She must have Hawaii in mind while creating that lyrics. What state has piqued so much more pictorial interest for its beaches, smiling people, and gorgeous all-around geography? You behold a postcard from Hawaii and suddenly the word paradise comes to mind.
Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States. Its capital and largest city is Honolulu. It is not located in what geographers call as the contiguous “Americas” but is instead situated in Oceania as an archipelago, which means Hawaii is composed of many islands.
Hawaii is made up of eight major islands. The seven islands that are inhabited are Hawaii, Maui, O’ahu, Kaua, Moloka, Lana and Kaho’olawe. The last island, Nil’hau, is privately owned and access to it is determined by the family who owns it. The rest are small islands or islets. Its highest mountain is Mauna Kea, at 13,796 feet.
The Hawaiian Islands were created by underwater volcanic motions. There are still a number of volcanoes in the state. Its unique location also produces unique wild life and vegetation. It is the state with the most number of endangered species. An example is the plant Brighamia, which has to be taken under the special care of botanists for it to flourish and survive.
The climate is tropical. The heat doesn’t go overboard because it is tempered by the trade winds.
As of 2015, there are 1,431,603 people living in Hawaii. The majority of the population is composed of Asians, which makes Hawaii unique in the US. The people in Hawaii speak two languages, namely English and Hawaiian.
Hawaii was once occupied by Polynesians who came from the Marquesas Islands, about 4,000 kilometers away from Mexico.
Then two groups, who now belong to islands called as French-Polynesian islands, arrived. After which were the Tahitians. These migrations established tribal chiefdoms.
There were speculations that the Spanish explored the islands in the 16th century but there are no hard facts to support it. What is certain is that a British Explorer, James Cook, arrived in 1778 and documented his exploration. He named the islands the Sandwich Islands in honor of his sponsor, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. In his publication, he spelled the islands’ name as Owyhee. This name survived in Idaho in the place called Owyhee County. In his second visit, an altercation between Cook and the natives led to the kidnapping of the King of Hawaii and ultimately, Cook’s death since the natives were not cowed, but instead fought back.
Cook and his writings were responsible for other European explorations of the islands. These visits were not always beneficial as the natives were infected by diseases brought by the visitors. In the middle of the 19th century, half of the Hawaiian population died from measles.
The kingdom of Hawaii was established in 1795 after continuous battling among the tribes. Eventually, one ruler was named, King Kamehameha the Great. Protestant missionaries came to the islands and converted a number of people. King Kamehameha III, who ruled Hawaii from 1825 to 1854, became the islands’ first Christian king. He also formed a government that is akin to the British. His rule was basically an integration of Western bureaucracy to the monarchy of Hawaii.
Sanford Ballard Dole, an American, became Hawaii’s president when Hawaii became a republic in 1884. The signing of the 1887 of the Constitution of Hawaii obliterated the power of the monarchy and handed it over to the rich white settlers of the islands.
From 1898 to 1959, Hawaii was annexed to the US. It was called the Territory of Hawaii. It was self-governed but it was still a US territory. During World War II, the island O’ahu was attacked by the Japanese. It spurred the US into joining the war.
A referendum was made in 1959, asking Hawaiians whether they wanted Hawaii to become a state. The votes showed an overwhelming support for statehood. It became a state on August 21, 1959.
The top five industries of Hawaii are tourism, defense (there a number of military bases in the state), agriculture, manufacturing, and service. The last one complements the first, what with Hawaii’s growing number of hotels and resorts.
Office and administrative support, food preparation and serving-related jobs, sales, education, and transportation and material-moving are the most popular jobs in the state.
The state government, the US military, University of Hawaii, Hawaii Pacific Health (a non-profit healthcare provider), and Hawaiian Holdings (parent company of Hawaiian Airlines) have the most number of employees.
The median household income of Hawaii is $69,592. This is 29.7 percent higher than that of the median household income of the entire country.
Since the population is predominantly Asian, the cuisine in Hawaii is different from any American state. The most popular ancient Hawaiian food is poi, made from pounding taro and sometimes fermented to get the desired sour taste. Lau lau means “leaf, leaf.” Pork or fish is wrapped in leaves (thus, the name) and cooked in an underground oven. Grilled, steamed, or baked, the sweet potatoes called uala are tasty no matter how it is cooked. Pipi Kaula is Hawaii’s beef jerky. It’s eaten with either poi or white rice. Made from taro, kulolo is a dessert that the locals always want to serve their visitors.
The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is home to a number of active volcanoes. Visitors get to witness and gape at lava flows, lava tubes and active craters.
The Polynesian Cultural Center is a Polynesian-themed park in Laie. This a place to watch Polynesian dances performed and Polynesian music played with authenticity.
Mauna Kea, Hawaii’s highest peak, is a great place for hiking, mountaineering, and climbing. People also claim that is also good for stargazing.
Pearl Harbor in O’ahu is a showcase of war memorabilia, including aircraft used during World War II.
Waimea Canyon State Park is known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Its formation is interesting since this large canyon was brought about by the collapse of a volcano.
