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.

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…

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…

Tourism at Bandhavgarh National Park in India

By Uday Patel
In the seventies, I made my first visit to Bandhavgarh National Park in Central India. 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.
