Mobile phones and WiFi radiation health risks

There have been many skeptics since the very initial introduction of wireless service about what the constant exposure to radiation can do to human health and the nature surrounding it. While the world is bracing for the launch of 5G services the question of the health risks looms large. The result of the extensive study that was conducted by the National Institutes of Health, US was inconclusive. The 10 year study was conducted using 2G and 3G wireless radiation exposure on animals for 9 hours each day. While it did show the increased risk of mutation leading to the growth of tumors or tissue and DNA damage in a group of rodents, another group did not show any evident health issues related to the exposure. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has cited exposure to radiation as a potent carcinogen for humans. It means that long term exposure to radiations could result in extensive damage. But here is something to think about. The studies were conducted on ani

The Story of Mike the Malicious Employee

This is a story of Mike, an aspiring database analyst who lost his way somewhere along his journey. It all started when Mike went to college, hoping to one day become an aspiring database analyst. Accordingly, after four grueling years spent in college, mike finally graduated from college with his degree in computer science. After applying for a job at a few places, he manages to secure a position at a top management consultancy firm. He had finally completed one milestone in his life - earning his college degree - now he'll be undertaking another key step in his life, becoming a key a full blown data analyst professional.

Accordingly, few months after starting his new job, he managed to exceed his key performance indicators by over one hundred percent. His boss was certainly impressed by his efforts and routinely offered him verbal praises, but never gave him a performance bonus. Nonetheless, Mike continued his efforts and quickly became a top performing employee amongst his peers. Few months later, a new position became vacant for assistant manager data analyst, and everyone believed that Mike would be picked for this position. However, the bosses had something else in mind, instead the boss hired his nephew who had just come out of college and had no experience in this field. It seemed like mike would be reporting to an untrained, unqualified manager. This act infuriated Mike and he decided to take decisive action against this injustice.

Of course, he tried pleading with the upper management but they did not heed to his justification. However, he had the perfect opportunity to get back at his employer for the injustice they had committed. Since he had access to confidential company information, such as HR records, marketing analytics, financial spreadsheets and other secretive data files, he decided to share these details with a competitor who would use this information to their own financial advantage. When he approached his employer's competitors with this proposal, they were thrilled, and offered him a top position of Head of Database analysis, along with a house, car and hefty yearly bonuses. It was a done deal for Mike and he compiled, he simply transferred all that data to a USB device and took off.

He then handed over this confidential data to his new employer who was more than happy to take it from him. Surely enough, within a few months, his new employer put the stolen data to good use and were able to Increase their company revenue by 150 percent.

What have we learned from the story, the moral of this story is that you make have a Mike or two working at your company, don't wait around for data leaks to occur, prevent them with data leak protection software. However, not any data leak prevention software will do, one of the most trusted and effective data leak prevention software is USB Block which prevent leaks of sensitive data, be it in a corporate environment or a small office setting.

Transport My Shipment Cheap? Sure! But What Do I Consider First?

By Adolf Onwuka Nanyell A few months ago, I ran into an old friend of mine, Serge Meyer, right in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Serge Meyer used to be the Marketing Director of Guinness PLC. He now runs an industrial blade manufacturing plant in Montreal, Canada which supplies its products to most of the top family run lumber jack companies in Central Canada. His factory procures some of the components it uses to produce the more sophisticated blades meant for more precise cuttings. These components weight between 4 pounds and 28 pounds. According to Meyer, his annual purchase is about 7,000 units of these components. Meyer's major supplier of these blade components is Bell Metals Canada Inc., located in Vancouver. Bell Metals is known for its reputation for top quality products and has been a trustworthy partner of Meyer's company since its inception. The Procurement Manger of Meyer's company believes that their next 12-month purchase from Bell Metals wil

The Truth About Menu Boards

By Kevin Purcel Digital Menu Boards are utilized in less than 20% of restaurants in overall nation. The other 80% are needlessly missing out on some incredibly easy and effective ways to increase the bottom line. What's today's special? Over half of restaurant customers look to menu boards specifically to find out what's on special. But incredibly, almost half the time the very information that these eager customers were looking for, literally with their money in their hands, was nowhere to be found! For the 80%, it's easy to see why. Imagine how difficult it would be to change static chalkboard signage every time you change your special. For owners of digital display systems, what's on your display can be changed at the touch of a button, with the changes automatically reflected in your POS system, too. This disadvantage is especially crushing if your major target consumers are younger. The Millennials, perhaps the most important demographic for QSR establishm

How Social Media Shapes Our Identity

The Internet constantly confronts us with evidence of our past. Are we losing the chance to remake ourselves? By  Nausicaa Renner In “The End of Forgetting: Growing Up with Social Media,” Kate Eichhorn worries that coming of age online might impede our ability to edit memories, cull what needs to be culled, and move on. Illustration by Tallulah Fontaine Last year, I had a strange dream. My father and I were wading in an industrial canal, reminiscent of a subway, as thousands of hatchery-raised fish were being released into it. The fish crowded, slimy, around our legs, and I knew (in the way that one knows in a dream) that they thought, as they hit the water, that they were drowning—that they had to experience death before entering adulthood. The next day, I told my father about the dream. He revealed that, when I was three, when we were living in Pittsburgh, he took me to see a truckful of catfish being pumped into an artificial pond. I was too young to remember this. But som

The Dramatic Downside of Home Decor Ideas in Movies

Movie sets make all kinds of fantastic home d�cor ideas seem possible, but many of these ideas would have major downsides in real life. Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory The chocolate factory is a big inspiration to kids everywhere. The pre-teen audience salivates at the sight of the chocolate river, teacup flowers, and trees with balloon-like candy fruit. Who wouldn't want a gigantic room where everything is edible? A reasonable adult with foresight-that's who wouldn't want the biohazard of such a playspace. First, there's the impossible task of fending off insects and replacing expired candy trees. Secondly, inviting any guests to enjoy would be as biologically risky as sharing a lollipop with a group of friends. The only adult who would be interested in a room or house of candy is the witch in Hansel and Gretel. Texas Chainsaw Massacre The murderous family in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie isn't portrayed in a very favourable light. "Stand your

How Does The Flu Shot Work?

Medical experts recommend that everybody should get a flu shot before the peak flu season begins, which is from December to March. However, many people simply prefer not to take it because of the mistaken notion that taking the vaccine will actually give them the flu. There is a reason why people believe this. It is a known fact that vaccines actually contain the virus that they are made to kill. This means, in the case of the flu vaccine, it actually contains the flu virus. This naturally triggers the question - won't it then cause the symptoms in the person who gets the shot? To understand how this works, take a look at how vaccines work. How flu shots work The influenza virus is first deactivated and then used to prepare the vaccine. About ten to fourteen days after you've received the flu shot, the deactivated viruses help to develop antibodies in your body. These new antibodies are strong and robust enough to prevent any new influenza virus

He Who Hates, Hates Himself

The nature of nature itself is balance, and so everything will come a full circle like it or not. Perhaps it isn't your fault, perhaps this is all just a charade to make you look bad. But here's the catch, once you cross that boundary, once you fall into that bottomless well, there's no going back. Hate is no faction, it is the strongest emotion a human can feel, which goes to say it isn't something to be trifled with. Escaping from such a pit is nearly as impossible as reaching the bottom. Even if you do manage to climb out somehow, even if you conquer the impossible, you will still have to face the ways of humans, you will have to face... the society. Think of a hero of legend. His family murdered by the tyrant king's hands. Every day of his life he dreamt of the terrible vengeance he would bestow upon the king. When finally he did slay his nemesis, he stood there with the king's head in one hand and the crown in the other. His rage so

Optimal Contact Center Technology Improves Customer Satisfaction

Customer loyalty is the make-or-break for most businesses. If customers do not keep coming back to you, and are not advocates of your organization, then churn will become increasingly damaging. How an optimal contact center can increase customer retention? Customer service is the largest single influence on consumer loyalty. Research has shown that 46 per cent of people feel that service is their number one driver for loyalty, compared to only 33 per cent who felt that product quality was key. So if you can achieve both excellent service and product quality, then your business will have high loyalty, and help drive profits up! Customer Frustration The research identified that there are three main areas of customer frustration in the contact center: Hold Times, Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRs) and Call Transfers. Businesses need to be aware that these areas can cause a great deal of dissatisfaction amongst customers, and ensure they work to avoid it. 1. Hold Times We all know t

Different Types of Sturdy Foundation Bolts

The foundation bolts are made by casting from wrought iron rods or mild steel and are used to fasten the machines to the foundations. The size of the bolt to be used depends upon the bulk of the machinery and the immensity of the power of the machinery while it is in use. The f bolt manufacturers make them strong enough as these provide the resistance and the required support to the structure. It also helps in providing a foundation that is strong enough for the entire structure. For setting the foundation bolts in correct places, positions are marked. After this, the they are suspended into the holes. Concrete is then filled into the space around the bolts and once the concrete sets, the bolts get secured firmly into the ground. There are several types of bolts made by the foundation bolt manufacturers that are used for various purposes. Let us have a look at them. Bent foundation bolt These are cast in bent form and then set in the concrete. At times, the machines require to be posi
