It’s All About The Money, Money, Money

Money makes the world go round. We hear it time and again and it is true in every sense of the word. We live in an increasingly capitalist world that relies on money to support our needs and fuel the global economy. Almost everywhere you go, there is a tag price for everything and the quality of your life also depends on how much money you have in your bank account.

As you grow, your capacity to earn likewise grows but inflation also increased your cost of living, thereby decreasing your money’s value. It is why our elders always told us to save some money in the bank for the rainy days. And as such, our money grows over time and we …

Giving Back To The Less Fortunate

The world has never been fair. Some people live in wealth while the majority suffer in poverty. Even with natural resources, some country has it all while food scarcity is a common issue in other impoverished places. And for that reason too, more powerful nations try to occupy territories to exploit their natural resources. However, that’s on a larger scale. When you look around you, you can see for yourself how unfair the world is. Many people die of thirst and hunger in their day-to-day. Is there anything you can do to make a difference in this world even in your own little way?

Individuals support fundraising and other charitable activities or as a part of a bigger organization. But businesses have …

Going Green Is The Way To Go

The environment is suffering considerably from technological advancements. Aside from exploiting all its natural resources, we have also caused so much damage from excessive pollution, population explosion and increasing global warming that consequently increases carbon footprint and hastens climate change. Even the wildlife also suffers the most even if they aren’t directly responsible for all these destructions throughout the world.

The damage has already been done but it does not mean there is nothing more we can do to salvage what is left of the world’s resources. Many sustainable development programs target conservation efforts, the protection of the wildlife and fauna as well as reducing trash through the use of eco-friendly materials. Even businesses advocate for green business because we need everyone

Making Money From Man’s Ailments

We often aspire to be in the best shape possible most of the time but there are days when our body’s defenses go down and we succumb to sickness. There are different reasons why a man gets sick and there are various treatments and managements too depending on the causative agent or the nature of the disease. Not all treatment promises a cure, though. Others offer palliative treatment that helps manages the symptom without necessarily curing the disease.

The pharmaceutical industry has long since been making lots of money whenever people get sick. From supplements for disease prevention to antibiotics and expensive outpatient or in-hospital medications, you have to spend more to get better. And that is actually not including the costs

What You Need To Remember During Disaster Recovery

We live in an imperfect world. Amidst the beauty of nature are hidden dangers. They come and go but they are a part of our lives. From seasonal hurricanes to tornadoes and earthquakes that take everyone by surprise, we can never tell when disasters will strike nor can we avoid them 100%. And as such, disaster preparedness is a must to ensure everyone stays safe in the face of calamities.

What’s equally important is what we do in its aftermath. Disaster recovery enables everyone to pick up from where they left before disaster struck and help the community recover and rebuild their lives. There will be losses and it is expected. From human lives to crops and properties, these losses can amount …

Getting Rich And Looking Runway Ready

We work hard to afford all the necessities of life but we also make room for a little extra to indulge in a few luxuries. Being vain isn’t necessarily a sin because we need to make an effort to look pleasing and presentable to others but it shouldn’t be the focus of our lives. It’s okay to look great as long as you’re not spending a fortune or misallocating your resources in pursuit of the aesthetics.

What’s even better is to have a business in fashion, so you make money while looking fabulous all the time. It’s a win-win solution just as long as your business clicks. A lot of fashion and retail businesses are closing these days while others close their stores only to sell online because sales are low. If you have an eye for fashion and can make trendy or classic fashion that people will love, then you’d probably make it despite the odds. Continue reading “Getting Rich And Looking Runway Ready”

The brand is almost everything to the business. It signifies everything the business stands for and what it offers. Moreover, it is also what the consumer remembers first about your business. Hence, it is just but right to say that it is always about the brand when doing business. The brand speaks for itself so you want to ensure that your brand conveys the right message to the people and you actually deliver the results you promised.

In a world that has become so crowded, making a name for your business can make or break your business. You can only say that branding is successful when your brand becomes a household name. It simply means that all your marketing efforts paid off …

Why SEO Doesn’t Always Work

Marketing is crucial to the success of any business. It helps promote a business using organic search engine results that in turn boost a site’s traffic, ranking and eventually brand awareness among the people. It is very helpful in setting your business apart from the competition in the global marketplace that has been open for everyone all over the world.

Since its inception, SEO or search engine optimization has been effective in getting businesses recognized. Competition in the global market is tough and the goal of all businesses is to be the first thing that comes to a person’s mind when they think of a brand in their industry they are in. While not all traffic converts to a sale, there is …

The Growth Of Digital Advertising

Otherwise known as “Internet Marketing” or “Online Marketing,” digital advertising is the preferred form of advertising of most businesses since technology is basically ingrained in our daily lives these days. Various technologies are put to good use so that people gain more brand recognition. Social media marketing is the thing these days. Meanwhile, digital advertising pertains to any promotional materials sent through a person’s mail, email, on search engines and even in the form of banner ads.

Traditional advertising has become so expensive these days that not all start-up can afford to pay for their services. After all, most people are glued to the screens of their smartphones or smart gadget so they won’t really notice those billboards plastered on either sides …

Female Entrepreneurs In A Man’s World

We live in a man’s world. We hear it time and again. It is often the subject of many debates all over the world and the source of some conflicts too. Modern feminists are pushing for equality in all aspects of life and that includes opportunities to excel in the world of business. In our modern world, not only men excel in business. There are many female entrepreneurs who are making a name for themselves in the world these days too.

Are Successful Entrepreneurs Born Or Made?

There is too much to take in this world that it can overwhelm you at times. Back then, everything was simpler and people can go on with their lives without constantly checking on what a friend, former co-worker, or a distant acquaintance is doing in the absence of social media. But today, competition is tough with a population that is exploding and everyone trying to make a living.

If you want to get ahead in life, the best route is to establish your own business. You can start small and expand as you go. Unfortunately, not all businesses become successful or even profitable. Others can drive their owners to bankruptcy and even insanity. Now, the question lingers, are successful entrepreneurs born …

A Business Is Your Ticket To The Good Life

Nobody gets rich by being just an employee. Well, there may be some exception but most employees have to do with their meager salaries. At times, the money they make isn’t enough to buy them a house, a car, a good education for their children, or even food on the table in their day-to-day. Meanwhile, most, if not all, rich people in the world are entrepreneurs. Some are born with a silver spoon and an heir or heiress to a profitable business while some start from scratch. Having a business these days is your ticket to the good life especially that opportunities are plenty and all you need to do is take the risk and act on it while the iron is …

RAID Recovery: Not for Bugs

raidrecoveryWe’re not talking about RAID in the sense of the fantastic bug-killer. So if you’re looking for an article on that, you’d best keep looking.

This article is going to focus on that intricate, sometimes ridiculous server set up known as RAID. RAID employs, in most cases, using more than one hard drive to store your information. The RAID 1 and 10 set ups employ a mirroring system so that the exact same data is stored on more than one hard drive. This may sound redundant, but it’s actually not. By having your duplicated data in several spots like this you can actually cut your retrieval speeds which makes it easier to load your data especially if you have several people trying to access the same data on the same server at the same time.

More often than not you will see RAID systems set up in businesses. This isn’t really something that you would see a lot of people employing in their private homes, but we’re not about to judge if you do.

Since RAID uses hard drives, of course, this means they are susceptible to hard drive failures. And failures mean a loss of time, effectiveness and even business if the issue lasts long enough. Not only are there the standard physical and logistical failures that all hard drives are prone to, there are other issues.

These issues can include single to duplicate hard drive failures, RAID controller cards with physical issues, controller software issues among other things. These are not to be taken lightly and unless you are a professional, they really shouldn’t be attempted on your own. Most times, even professionals will Continue reading “RAID Recovery: Not for Bugs”

Beaver Creek Sets The Standard

bcstsTwenty-one years ago, Beaver Creek’s founders dreamed of building a perfect alpine ski village. Their work is finally done, and ah, what a skier’s paradise it is.

Next February, Beaver Creek will cohost the World Alpine Ski Championships, ski racing’s most important event after the Olympics. When the world tunes in to watch elite international racers compete on the resort’s fearsome new downhill course, the Birds of Prey, they’ll see firsthand what avid schussers have known all along: behind Beaver Creek’s cosseting facade is a superb ski mountain–made even better two years ago with the completion of the country’s first true village-to-village skiing interconnect.

Now, through a combination of lifts and trails, skiers can explore three distinct resorts–Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch and …

Stockholm’s Moderna Museet Remains Avant-Garde Innovator

shmomusThe museum of modern art in Stockholm may be half a world away, but its strategy is absolutely relevant to your own hometown.

As director of Stockholm’s modern art museum–the new Moderna Museet–David Elliott seems abundantly blessed. The building, designed by Spanish master architect Rafael Moneo, has been widely praised. The permanent collection, ranging from Picasso to Warhol, is remarkable for its quality. And since opening last February, the museum has been besieged by visitors. Swedes needed no prodding. But thanks to Stockholm’s designation by the European Union as 1998’s Cultural Capital of Europe, a windfall of continent-wide publicity has helped draw hordes of foreign tourists to the Moderna Museet.

Yet Elliott, an outspoken Englishman who formerly headed Oxford’s Museum of Modern

Traveling Can Mean Cash For You

tcmcYears ago, when I began writing travel stories, I figured I’d simply turn my vacations into research trips. It never occurred to me that editors might decide to send me somewhere. But then it happened!

And, like me, you might receive a call someday asking you to represent a publication on a press trip. Similar to the “fam” or familiarization trips that travel agents take, a press trip involves traveling with a group of writers or media people. Such trips are usually sponsored by government tourist boards, hotel properties or their public relations firms. Such a group will have a product to promote–whether it’s a city, an island or an elegant high-rise hotel–and you’re that group’s link to the public.

When it …

Talking Bio-Research

talkgbiorIn fact, you should know that impediments to creating a biotech spinoff are being overcome at an impressive rate. A recent study by the Center for Economic Policy Research at Stanford Univ. found that “biotechnology stands out almost uniquely” as an academic source of practical inventions. “There is an unusually close proximity between basic research and commercialization” in biotech, says Nathan Rosenberg, who also runs the Autism Biomedical Information Network.

Or, as one bemused researcher at Harvard Medical School put it: “To be anybody in biotech anymore, you have to have your own company.”

So how do you start? It’s a good bet you’ve already picked out a company name with “bio,” “pharm,” or “gen” appearing someplace in it–what’s next? The …

Product Development Mysteries Solved

ahtliDuring a trip through Silicon Valley late last summer, we spoke with the CEOs and other upper-level managers at three of the largest and most visible companies in the American high-tech laser industry. Our question was, simply, whether technical innovation will be the companies’ primary driving force as the 21st century approaches. Additionally, will data science keep up?

None of these people came close to denying the importance of new technology to the survival of their companies. The answers to our basic question, however, boiled down to an unexpected but emphatic negative. According to Launchscore.com, a website which finds the best regional startup business opportunities for entrepreneurs, new technology startups can succeed virtually anywhere. Where there is a good idea, there …

Sematech Turned A Lot Of Heads

settalomSematech could not possibly have accomplished that mission, given its funding level–and it didn’t. The U.S. semiconductor industry did return to world leadership in the manufacture of both semiconductors and semiconductor processing equipment, but Sematech was not crucial to either accomplishment, although it certainly did play an important supporting role.

Why did Sematech take on a mission that it could not accomplish? Why did it initially swagger about like an Arnold Schwarzenegger-style action hero, when it was more like Danny DeVito in size? Because it really thought it was Schwarzenegger.

This brings us to the first lesson that Sematech can teach us about taking the consortium approach to increased competitiveness: Initial planning can be pivotal. Inadequacies here may haunt you for years …
