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.

Is 2017 Brick And Mortar Retail's Last Stand?

Why is it that brick and mortar retailers are unable to remain profitable? Well, there are many reasons, one has to do with increased costs of employees due to ObamaCare, but that is just another fire hose in the bucket - increased regulations too has taken its toll and the biggie, of course, is the growth with Online Retailers. How did things get so bad? Well, in their race for profits, these name-brand big retailers started selling us inferior Chinese Made products, dressing them up nicely with well-done marketing.

As I started to write this article, I was interrupted by life-events several times; Christmas, Family, New Years, California Storms, Yard Work, Etc. and each time I put it off to another day, there was yet another unfortunate story in the news; Bloomberg Business News, CNBC, Wall Street Journal, or the NYTs, LA Times or Washington Post Business Section, of yet another downsizing, right-sizing, or bankruptcy in the retail sector - stores closing, vendors hosed, employee lay…

3 Basic Moves Innovators Have In Common With Toddlers

Is patience your best virtue when it comes down to crafting the life cycle of your business methodology or managing a new project? In which way can patience complement persistence within the infancy stage of your business model?

A successful operation, whether it's a nonprofit organization, a new workforce, an innovative concept, or a club cannot allow haste to make waste, even in a fast-paced environment. It is reported that children who skip the crawling phase as a baby could develop such challenges as suffering from speech problems or have difficulty reading and writing due to underdevelopment in part of their brain. The same principle holds true with innovation. It is unwise to think you can valiantly win a competitive race or monopolize an industry with underdeveloped planning and preparation.

Remarkably, new business owners and innovators have something in common with toddlers.

Babies develop the ability to move and use eye and body coordination in order to crawl. They ob…

Understanding The Difference Between Compliments and Praise

How do you energize your employees and give them the determination to continue producing excellent work? Through the power of praise. As the manager, praise can be used as your expression of approval. This recognition can tell your employees exactly what they are doing well and what they should continue to do.

When giving praise however, you must ensure that it is both genuine and meaningful. Your employees will be able to tell if you are forcefully trying to praise them and that may be detrimental to your image. In order for praise to be effective, you want to find a task that you think that have exceptionally done well and acknowledge that.

The other big tip to remember is that a compliment is not the same as praise.

When you give your employees praise, it should be about more than a comment on the individual's appearance or outfit. Praise is about actions and behaviors.

Here is an example:

You are working with an employee you is impeccably dressed and on the last project, his prese…

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 FactoryThe 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.

Bad Service Can Ruin Your Restaurant's Reputation

During the holidays I enjoyed the time off with some surf, sea and sand. As like most people on holiday, I love spending time with special people at wonderful restaurants. Most of the restaurants I went to knew what they were doing and their waitrons were on the ball. I commend such good customer service. However, there was this one restaurant that I went to that did not offer such a good customer experience. Bad service can give a restaurant a bad name.

Let me share my experience with you.
My companions and I decided to have breakfast at the beach. This particular restaurant is ideally situated on the beach, just a few metres from the sea so you can imagine the beautiful view we were looking forward to. While waiting in the queue to be seated, we were promptly informed that we needed to wait a bit. Once we were seated it took quite some time for our waitron to welcome us and provide us with the menus. When she did show up she advised that the restaurant is very busy and breakfast will …

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 FontaineLast 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 somewhere in my m…
