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…

Top 4 Sales & Marketing Ideas to Win More Business

1) Prospect and sell to companies that you currently do business with

We all have bills and write checks to these vendors every month. Why not make a list of all the companies you have a professional working relationship with. Contact them and tell them about your company/produce/service. Not everyone will be a potential client, but you should have ready access to the owner/decision maker since you already enjoy a buying relationship with them.

2) Every Sales Professional is an IT (Information Technology) and Communications Company first and foremost and a sales professional second

Understanding and utilizing the latest social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Instagram can help you to expand your sales reach and prospecting effectiveness. Develop a digital footprint and presence on each of these mediums with great content that speaks and resonates the value your company/product/service provides.

Why The 'Will To Win' Isn't Enough

"It's not the will to win that matters - everyone has that. It's the will to prepare to win that matters." --Paul "Bear" Bryant, football coach

It took a long time for me, as a struggling sales rep, to understand the difference in attitude and action this quote speaks to. But once I did, my sales results (and my life) changed.

I used to be an inside sales rep, a financial broker selling LLC partnerships, in a company with 25 other reps. The company had the top 20% reps doing 80% of the sales. I wasn't in that group, rather, I was bringing up the rear. Sales were hard to get, and as a result, my life as a sales rep was hard as well.

I wanted to do better; I had the will to win, but what I lacked was the will to prepare to win. I was one of the reps who came in right before my shift began, and I went for the coffee and donuts first. I hung around there talking about the latest sports scores with the other bottom producers. I couldn't wait for lunch tim…

Build A Winning Business Model

Whether your company is a start-up or several decades old, the business model is the hub around which all activities revolve. The business model is the blueprint that shows company leaders how to create value and build a money-making enterprise. It is the engine that drives revenue and generates profits.

Fail to devise a winning business model and you will not build a business that succeeds over the long-term. Creation of a profitable business model is a multi-disciplinary exercise that encompasses marketing, sales, strategy, operations and finance.

Identify the primary customers (Marketing)

Through external market research and, if available, internal tracking of purchases, identify and confirm the largest customer groups. If your customers are B2B, identify also the departments and job titles of decision-makers and influencers who can impact and green-light sales.

Define the value proposition (Sales)

Explain why you can expect target customers to value and choose to buy your products and…

How to Protect Your Restaurant Against Power Surges

Power surges due to local area load shedding or lightning strikes are a reality for most people. The rush of a power surge that takes place when the electricity rushes through the electrical circuit can cause devastating results for businesses and restaurants.

Restaurants rely on electricity constantly as it affects the amount of customers they get. If a restaurant is shut down due to a power surge that electrocuted all the kitchen equipment, it means that income is lost for that period. As a restaurant owner, you need to plan what you would do in such an event and how to prevent it.

The first thing you could do is to install a power surge protector. This power surge protector can minimise the impact of a power surge when lightning strikes. So the electrical catering equipment will not get that quick rush of electricity which can lead to electrical failure. The consequences of a sudden electrical rush can be devastating as the electricity can burn or destroy an electrical appliance'…

A Case for Reducing the Glare on Signage and LED Screens

Coatings are provided for outdoor signage and indoor LED screens for the same purpose. To reduce the glare of the light source reflected on it. The same technology is used for coating reading glasses too, when the light hits the reading lens, both in front and the back and bounces off it, enveloping the wearer's eyes in a bright glare. Coming back to outdoor signage and home/office LED screens, this glare can cause harm to the eyes. Tired eyes syndrome results from being exposed to reflected glare from a light source beaming on the computer screen.

What is the solution?

Anti-glare coatings solve this problem effectively. These are polycarbonate sheets that are pasted on the screens. These sheets have tiny particles spread out on the surface, making it uneven. When light hits this, the particles cause a diffusion of the light because the rays are reflected at different angles. This reduces the effect of bright sunlight and improves the readability of outdoor signage displays that ar…

How Does The Flu Shot Work?

Medical experts recommend that everybody should get a flu shot before the peak flu season begins, which is from December to March. However, many people simply prefer not to take it because of the mistaken notion that taking the vaccine will actually give them the flu. There is a reason why people believe this.
It is a known fact that vaccines actually contain the virus that they are made to kill. This means, in the case of the flu vaccine, it actually contains the flu virus. This naturally triggers the question - won't it then cause the symptoms in the person who gets the shot?
