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 animals that were expo…

12 Ways to Conquer 2017 New Years Resolutions

As 2017 approaches, I wanted get some tips out there about how to achieve your goals for the upcoming New Year.

The New Year! Yes, everything will change. I'm going to do better on my diet, lose 100 pounds, stop smoking, walk and exercise more, get that cholesterol level down, stop drinking so much, be nicer to people, and blah, blah, blah.

We've all been there one year or another, wanting to make changes, sometimes we do, for a couple weeks, and then we relapse right back to where we were before the New Year. Then disappointed, we may try a mid February 'resolution' or mid year resolution, anything to get us motivated to make that change.

The question is why we wait for the New Year to come around to make it happen. We don't need to give it a name, or wait for a particular time of the year, we need to "just do it". If there is one thing that I've learned its that people really do not like change.

We get into our own little bubble, a…

The Four Chemicals of Sales Motivation

One of my favourite cocktails is a Vodka Martini. It has four distinct ingredients - vodka, vermouth, olives and ice - it's delicious.

In the same way, it's been discovered and popularised by Simon Sinek, that happiness or motivation is created in the human brain with four distinct chemicals, and our role as a sales leader can become much easier if we understand how these elements affect our sales team and provide an environment to motivate.

They're known as EDSO - endorphins, dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin.

Mixed together, they explain why humans are motivated and why salespeople do what they do. This is essential knowledge for any sales leader. Let me explain further.

Endorphins
This afternoon, I played squash with my best buddy Paul; he beat me 2:1, it was close and I played better than I normally do. When the game started, my right arm ached a little. I thought this was going to hurt but after 10 minutes of warming up, my brain created endorphins whi…

It was a small park barely visited by the tourists except by one or two photographers from overseas, and some drop ins who had heard about the destination from friends.Desolate and untended, the sparks of tourism were barely seen but nevertheless gauging the potential MPTDC had set up a property consisting of four rooms and a small bar cum dining.
