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…

Artificial Intelligence: A Reality Check

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the new black, the shiny new object, the answer to every marketer's prayers, and the end of creativity. The recent emergence of AI from the arcane halls of academia and the backrooms of data science has been prompted by stories of drones, robots and driverless cars undertaken by tech giants like Amazon. Google and Tesla. But the hype exceeds the day-to-day reality.

AI has a fifty-year history of mathematical and computer science development, experimentation and thought. It's not an overnight sensation. What makes it exciting is the confluence of large data sets, improved platforms and software, faster and more robust processing capabilities and a growing cadre of data scientists eager to exploit a wider range of applications. The prosaic day-to-day uses of artificial intelligence and machine learning will make a bigger difference in the lives of consumers and brands than the flashy applications touted in the press.

So consider this AI reality chec…

Can Panera Deliver the Knockout Blow, Or Will They Miss It?

Panera has done some amazing things over the past couple of years... but are they enough to deliver a knockout blow to their competition? Only Panera knows for sure but I am hopeful they are going to deliver a big knockout punch instead of miss a huge opportunity.

Based on an article in the Wall Street Journal, "What Panera Had to Change to Make Its Menu 'Clean'" the CEO, Ron Shaich, describes how they have completely changed most of their food ingredients to be much healthier and without chemicals... kudos to him and Panera. This is a great start and something every company needs to be doing today and into the future. By doing this, Panera is definitely taking the lead and jumping out in front of many others.

But there's an inherent problem with this strategy... have you recognized it yet?

With all the good work Panera and Ron Shaich have done to change the ingredients of their food, it's still just food... a commodity. You can get lots of great food everywhere…

Cheese Cutters: Unappreciated Catering Equipment

Cheese Cutters are not given as much attention as they deserve. We all eat cheese and if you've made a sandwich for yourself you know how irritating it can be if you use the wrong knife to slice the cheese. That laborious task would be multiplied in the restaurant industry. In this article, we'll take a look at the different types of Cheese Cutters available.

We Ended Our Retail Operation, Should You?

We used to be a big huge sellers on Amazon. Big. We had a basement warehouse and bought by the pallet fulls. We used FBA on Amazon... sending in shipment after shipment of product. In fact, at one time we had more product in the Amazon warehouse than in our own stock.

We also sold direct to consumer, which was a bit of business. We sold locally by delivery and nationally by mail.

It sounds like we should have been rolling in cash but we were not. Amazon was tricky because we sold a commodity product that others could also be selling. Lowest price wins, and many sellers would sell for a loss. So we took a different tactic, we started selling items that were soon to be discontinued or were already discontinued, buying up a large portion so we could outlast the other sellers. Sometimes we won, sometimes we lost. We gave away a lot of product that our buyers did not want.

Retail sales is filled with risk. You have to be really good not to lose money doing it. But it is also addictive because…

Searching out a company to handle your electrical needs can be a daunting process, especially if this is your first time.

Secrets of Bonding 138: Hate Union Bonds

Union Bonds, aka Wage and Welfare Bonds, can be a troublesome area for contractors, agents and bonding companies. But we like to think there is something there to love. We will explain...

The Hating

For contractors, this is often their first brush with the wonderfully playful world of surety bonds. Maybe the contractor is focused on light commercial work, or is exclusively a subcontractor, so bid and performance bonds have never been needed. The contractor wants to get workers from the union hall so a new contract can begin on time. Suddenly this road block appears: "A $50,000 surety bond is required." Unfortunately, the contractor learns that financial statements are needed - but they are not immediately available. And there are financial strength requirements, which the contractor may need meet, soooo... !

For bonding companies, you might assume that if they get paid their premium, they should be perfectly happy to issue these. They are not. The union bond is often their firs…

3 Business Obstacles That A Solopreneur Can Overcome

Going it alone as a Solopreneur can be equal parts basking in the validation of your expertise and frustration that stems from facing business obstacles. To counteract anticipated negatives that could undermine your position, you'll be wise to include in your business strategy elements of risk management tactics, to help you overcome obstacles that would stand between you and a thriving client list. Let's spotlight three common obstacles that can potentially trip up those who lead a consulting services practice.

Obstacle #1: You don't own a business, you own your job

Eight out of ten consulting practices never expand beyond services that are personally provided by the founding principal. There may be administrative support staff present (often part-time), there will be occasional project-specific sub-contractors hired, but the vast majority of consultancies are limited to, and by, the production capacity of the founding principal.

As a result, if the founder isn't working…

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…

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.

Texas Chainsaw MassacreThe murderous family in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie isn't portrayed in a very favourable light. "Stand your gr…

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 …
