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…

The Importance of the Prayer Of Jabez

Scriptures and holy books have many examples of prayers, that teach us to believe in the existence of God and count on him. The prayer of Jabez is one such prayer.

The prayer of Jabez is mentioned in the Bible. But his approach is completely different from how we make requests to God. The prayer is divided into the following four parts:

� Part I: In the first part, Jabez asks God to bless him. He recognizes that only God has the power to bless, and he is the only one who has the divine powers. He acknowledged who God is and believed that God will make his life beautiful. This says that we should always pray from the heart and have faith in the power of blessings.

� Part II: In the second part, Jabez asked God to multiply his territory. Now, this can be seen in two ways. Some say that Jabez asked God to enlarge his land. While others say that he asked God to increase his share of spiritual territory. He wanted to get closer to God. When you pray, ask God to give you the capability of serv…

Why You Should Look For A Towing Truck

If you have ever met car problems in the middle of the road you know that it is very scary. When you are having a major road problem a tow truck company can only help you in the best way.

The sad thing is that most of the people don't have any idea about a towing company. They don't even know when they should call the company. If you are a regular traveller here are some of the most obvious reasons why you should look for a tow truck company.

A Major Collision

If you feel that the car is not in a good condition you should look for the best tow truck company who can tow the car t…

Knowing Parking Details When Travelling Saves Time

Summer is not very far off and that is why planning your summer is essential. Especially, if you have plans to go on a cruise or are planning to travel across the country in your car. Visiting famous cities is a lovely option and makes a great vacation. Of course, the complexity of the parking situation in the huge cities is baffling. This is the only thing that bothers visitors. However, here is a brief description of the options of parking available:

To begin with, street parking is available in many busy areas, but you must look for less crowded areas. The side-streets may have more space, yet do not forget to read the signs. This is because, though it may appear as street parking, it may definitely not mean it is meant for parking.

Ensure you do not park your car in a yellow curb or in the area that has that day reserved for street cleaning. Generally, one side of the street is cleaned and not both on a given day. Also watch out for the sign that informs you not to park. Most import…

Safety Management Series - Audit Fatigue? How Did We Get Here?

The Phone Call

The phone rang that morning with certain urgency in its ring. I know that sounds silly but I just knew that there was something out of the ordinary about this phone call.

"Al, its Bob, Bob Granite... the CEO" (the names have been changed to protect the innocent). This was interesting indeed. The CEO of the company I worked for had never called me before. I had certainly met him and I had on several occasions made presentations to him and his executive team but I'd never been called before.

"Yes Bob, what can I do for you?" I asked, knowing full well that Bob would be very clear and direct on how I could help him.

"Well Al, I've got in my calendar that I have a meeting with an independent OH&S Auditor. I'm sure this is the same fellow that I met a few months ago."

"Yes Bob, that would be the auditor we hired to do a preparation audit for us so we'd know where our short comings were in our OHS Program. This meeting is to d…

Tips For Successful Online Vehicle Merchandising

Digitization is gaining momentum and expanding across borders and continents. With buyers spending countless hours on the internet gathering all the information they possibly can, there's no denying the fact that they are now much more aware than they ever were. To cope with the increasing customer awareness, marketers need to modify their strategies and change the way they position and display their products. They need to bring every facet of their inventory above the fold. They need to know what drives sales. A simple set of changes today could have a huge impact on your sales a few months down the line.

Slowly selling inventory is a pain for every automotive dealer and is something everyone has encountered at least once. Keeping the inventory moving is absolutely essential. And how do you that? You bring the products to the customers and not the other way round. For every vehicle in your dealership, there are thousands of buyers out there and it's up-to you to go out and fin…

The Most Important Question: Why Should I Buy a Used Car?

A rapidly growing car market can only mean one thing - a vastly growing car market for the used cars. Buying an old car or second-hand car makes a lot of sense even if it isn't as purchasing a new car. One should be patient while searching for pre-owned vehicles.

Benefits of Buying A Used Car:

• Lower price tag
• Less descriptive
• Can be bought by ordinary people
• Students can afford if they get the same car for half the price so it helps college going students a lot
• No hassle of sales tax
• Small registration fees
• A huge amount of dealers and their crazy deals
• Car condition is almost pristine

What Procedure Should You Do Before Buying A Used Car?

Step - 1: Homework:

• Which car is it? -

After deciding the brand along with the model and your desired price range, you should look for reputed dealers. However, with the growing car market, almost all cars will come under your budget if you are looking for a family car.

• Which model should you buy? -

A slight research will give you a broad…

Three Bits of Advice for Tiny Home Builders

Tiny houses are all the craze because millennials and retirees are looking for cost-effectiveness over security. Mobility and cost-savings are two major advantages that motivate tiny home builders to downsize. Without prior construction experience, however, many enthusiasts end up learning the craft as they go. Do proper research before beginning your project, and keep these key tips in mind.

1. Start with a quality trailer.
Many college students and other youngsters are looking for the cheapest possible solution to housing, but it's important to start with a trailer in good condition. People sometimes start with a used RV chassis, even clearing off the original structure themselves. The danger of this approach is that rust spots and wear from use can become problems in the long term. Used trailers can also seem like a bargain, but it's hard for an amateur to guess the trailer's mileage or identify signs of wear and neglect. Areas weakened by rust can be filled in with putty…

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.

5 Secrets That All Smart Corporate Event Planners Know

Planning, coordinating, and executing perfect corporate events is a skill that few event planners have. The key in pulling off an event just right is making the event flow seamlessly while ensuring that all of the wires aren't visible during the magic show, so to speak.

It is this skill that takes time to develop and hone. All is not lost, though, because if you dedicate enough time to observe stellar corporate event planners in action, what emerges are five distinct bits of know-how that truly underscore what it is that makes them the best:

1. Never Underestimate the Importance of Details - Many event planners lose ground in their organization because they are too worried thinking 'big picture' rather than making sure that the minute pieces of the puzzle are in place. It's important to outline the purpose of the event, as well as truly understand the client's goals and objectives. Have your calendar with you at all times for both firm & soft dates. Maintain a c…

Four Ideas for Building a Successful Miniature Golf Course

If you have ever been to a miniature golf course in a tourist area, then you are probably familiar with pirate and dinosaur themes. Big structures help the business to look more appealing from the outside, converting passing traffic into customers. Even up close, the public is quickly bored with a flat series of holes on relatively level ground. Design flourishes can make the whole game more enjoyable.

Find Your Giant WindmillIt may seem like a clich� in the industry, but a giant windmill has always been a classic attraction. The blades rotate and momentarily block the path where putters need to aim. The obstacle adds the challenge of timing your stroke, and swinging too soon (or too late) results in laughter and frustration. Of course, your big feature doesn't need to be a windmill. Think of something large and memorable, preferably with movement or some other unique challenge. This is your opportunity to make an impression on guests.

Small Bodies of WaterSome beginners design the…

Big History and Donald Trump Changes

Before the last-minute intervention of the FBI director in October, 2016, Donald Trump's presidential campaign appeared to be unraveling. Most Republicans were frustrated because they felt he went into the election with a winning hand based on a call for change. "This election is all about change," is what we heard from "Establishment Republicans" and Trump surrogates. With Trump's surprising victory came enthusiasm by all varieties of Republicans for impending change.

When not sabotaging his campaign by displaying personal flaws, Trump rattled off numerous changes needed to undo the Obama administration in domestic and foreign policy. Establishment Republicans embraced the anti-Obama changes as great strides forward that would soon boost the American economy.

When this election is viewed in historical perspective, we see that Trump's message was essentially anti-change. His changes attempt to reverse irresistible demographic, economic, and international …

Immigration of Today Is the Terrorism of Tomorrow

Christiane Amanpour, globetrotting international journalist of exceptional professionalism and talent, interviewed an obviously affluent, educated, suave French lady on the streets of Paris very early Saturday morning after the terrorist attack there in November 2015. Speaking softly, but deliberately, showing little emotion, the French woman, when asked her thoughts on the horrific Friday evening of mayhem in her country, responded, "Immigration of today is the terrorism of tomorrow."

Simple but stirring, painful but poignant, difficult but distressing, a call to attention for what we must consider here in our own country, the United States of America, lest we, ourselves, become even more complacent and ignore the obvious out of a false sense of obligation to the destitute and needy of the entire world.

On Friday, January 27, 2016, President Donald J. Trump, on his eighth day in office, as a first step in his avowed quest to bring under control the unfettered immigration situ…

How a Recycling Company Can Help Change Our Future

According to a recent climate study, the last three years have been the hottest years on record for Planet Earth. This study, as well as others on the topic of global warming, have contributed to the hotbed of controversy surrounding climate change, and have led world leaders, skeptics, and ordinary citizens of the world alike to unify behind reversing the trend of rising temperatures. Excess greenhouse gas emissions, most notably carbon dioxide, are believed to be the main culprit behind the increase in Earth's temperatures, and therefore, efforts to decrease these have been the primary focus for many of the parties interested in the climate change movement. The process of recycling and its benefits on the planet and daily life of all people is a vital component in reversing climate change.

Turn Your Passion Into Your Job

We have all heard the clich� before: choose a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life. It's been a whimsical philosophy, painted on billboards, engraved in wooden signs that you'd see in gift store windows. This phrase is easy to dismiss because, well, of course we want to work a job that we love. Who wouldn't want that? If it were realistic and practical to attain, everybody on the planet would turn their passion into their career.

Just to make myself clear, I'm not here to tell you that this philosophy is unattainable. Quite the opposite; I want to shed light on the negative discourse suggesting that following your passion is not realistic.

The first step is asking yourself "How can I make a career out of what I feel most passionate about?" It's important to identify not only your dream job, but how you can deliver the most good and make your impact reach its full potential. Identifying your passion is half the battle. When you do what…

Shared Web Hosting - Is It Beneficial For Your Business?

Shared web hosting is very common in today's online world. There are unlimited web hosting service providers offering shared hosting plans and services which are commonly beneficial for personal blogging websites and business websites. In general terms, you can define the shared web hosting as a service where a single server is shared by many websites. Each website is allocated separate partition/place on the server to keep it distinct from other websites.

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.

Roses Are Red, But Are Violets Really Blue?

Well, maybe not. In today's Tech world, what seems to be may not be.

Phishing, credit card fraud, email scams, all have become very sophisticated for sure.

An example, I just listed my Note 5 on Amazon seller account, within minutes I had a buyer-until I read the response:

Does this sound like something Amazon would write?

Quote: "we hereby inform you that order have been completed for your item and payment have been received from buyer by us on your behalf. An additional 50 for shipping has been added. You can now go ahead and ship item and get back to us with shipping tracking number for shipment verification in other to transfer your payment into your account".

Obviously, these morons were not very good at it. But many are.

A scammer contacts you out of the blue pretending to be from a legitimate business such a bank, telephone or internet service provider. You may be contacted by email, social media, phone call, or text message.

The scammer asks you to provide or confirm yo…

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 positi…

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 …
