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

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.

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…

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.

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.

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 …
