Nebraska Twin Tornadoes

environmental issues 1On Monday, Pilger Nebraska was stunned by twin tornadoes that took the lives of two people and destroyed almost 70% of the entire town. Local schools, alongside countless houses were declared beyond repair and while news from different networks was busy contacting science experts to help explain this incident, the locals of Pilger remain dazed. It was reported that employees from a local bank who were interviewed silently watched in awe as the sky turned dark and they have no idea what’s happening. As the tornadoes started to form, it made the skies a lot darker, but somehow clearer in in the eyes of the witnesses, why the heavens suddenly turned dark.

According to Donovan Ellis, the VP of Midwest Bank, they first heard some commotion outside and then the floor of the vault began to vibrate and rumble. “After that, no more” he added. When he stepped out alongside other employees, all they saw was the destroyed town. Main Street can’t even be considered Main Street anymore because of how it looked. 16 individuals were injured and two died, including a 5-year-old child. The National Weather Service Later on reported that the tornadoes stayed on the ground for about 15 miles. This town with a population of 378 was officially destroyed – or at least 3 quarters of it. Most were fully destroyed but there were also other establishments that were only partially damaged. Because the two tornadoes were roughly one mile apart from each other while swirling and swirling and causing mutilation of the place, experts say this was a great factor to the conclusion of damages. If it happened that the two were more apart then the damage could be worse.

Today, both the government and various private institutions are doing their best to help the victims of the twin tornadoes. Cleanup began last Wednesday and they’re all hoping that what happened on Monday 3:45 p.m. won’t ever happen again.

This incident just showed how cruel the Earth can be. On that note, various environmental groups are now seeking ways to prevent such massive damage. Warning devices are being studied because after all, we cannot stop a tornado from swirling around any town. But with a high quality warning device, people can evacuate earlier. Experts are also creating reports on how people’s lifestyle affects the condition of the Earth and they’re looking into possibilities of it causing such unwanted calamity. According to science, twin tornadoes are not very rare. But to see it happen more often than ever must have something to say about us causing trouble to the Earth.

Nonetheless, these science and environmental experts do not want to make premature conclusions. Studies are continuous and the people from Pilger are up on their feet, trying to revive whatever it is they can revive. Reporters are also there to continuously give updates on how the relocations and cleanup and relief distribution are taking place. Churches, schools, banks and even the local fire station may be down, but how the people from Nebraska reacted on this just shows there’s no reason to feel sorry but rather, feel uplifted with all the support they’re getting from the government and from one another.

Say Hello to Fire Phone

technology today 1No, we’re not bringing any smartphone on fire, but we do have a phone for you that will fire you up. Meet Amazon’s Fire Phone, one of the latest gadgets making buzz in the 3D realm and the first smartphone from Amazon giving people the hint that this company will burgeon – big time. This phone is the perfect combination of most-used technology and new technology that’s specifically invented for Fire Phone. But knowing Amazon, this will probably improve and upgrade in no time.

The Amazon Fire Phone was formally introduced to the public last Wednesday, June 18 and this much-anticipated thing never failed the consumers. The 4.7 LCD display is, of course, in high definition and in 3D. Plus it also comes with unique Gorilla Glass 3 on both ends. The quad-core 2.2GHz processor ensures this won’t phone won’t lag easily and that it can keep up with other technology features that requires “phone power.” In case you’re problematic of your smartphone that slows down after hours of usage, you might want to consider this. Fire Phone also comes with a one-of-a-kind f/2.0 five element camera lens and to put it in simple words, you can say this one phone comes with 5 cameras. Not yet included there is the built-in optical image stabilization feature. It took Amazon years to complete this and while they’ve been giving hints about it and saying they are thinking of creating a smart phone, people are somewhat sure the company will definitely do it. Now, Amazon Fire Phone is on the verge of fame.

When Jeff Bezos, the Amazon CEO introduced their latest product to the market, he stresses out that it is all about dynamic perspective. As he was showing the best of the best features of Fire Phone, he was literally showing dynamic perspective. Among the features that received the most claps was the FireFly. If you’re watching a movie with a friend and came in late and you have no idea what they’re watching, simply focus Fire Phone on the TV screen and it will not only recognize what movie it is, it will also display the specific scene and the casts that were talking while you’re focusing it on the television.

Amazon was also pretty clever when they designed FireFly feature because movies and music are not the only things it can detect. Focus the camera on a book, and the smartphone will bring you to a list of what you can do. It identifies the book, of course, but it also lets you purchase it on Amazon Kindle with one click, or share it with a friend, find an audio version – literally almost anything. With just a tilt, this Amazon phone will automatically scroll any article or Ebook you’re reading. It also comes with a 3D map that allows you to find and see the place you’re looking for from a view up above – panoramic. This allows you to find the fastest way to get there. No doubt, Amazon didn’t just produce a smartphone – it produced something that gives people more convenience without spending too much.

 

Facts To Know Before Hosting a Multi-Sectoral Symposium

conference in general 2A multi-sectoral symposium in a nutshell, is a conference composed of different attendees from different fields. it tackles broad issues of today that has something to do with their own business – such as economic problem affecting the field of science and technology, education and even health. Through multi-sectoral conferences, businesses and companies are given the chance to share ideas and perhaps how their company is being affected. It is an event where different sectors work as one to solve their dilemma. While they cannot solve the economic problem of their country for instance, at least they can generate ideas how their people won’t be severely affected.

Weave them together

Most multi-sectoral conferences are hosted by gigantic companies or institutions who know something must be done. If you’re part of the hosting team, that must be the reason why you’re reading this. initially, one of the must-do in every multi-sectoral symposium is to ensure everything weaves together. Since this caters people from different fields, you should ensure that the flow of the entire event is smooth-sailing and that every sector can easily relate to it. on challenge of hosting this kind of event is how you can link together these totally different sectors when there’s almost nothing to link them. Well, that’s just almost.

Extra preparation is a must

Don’t be the bane of the event and screw up simply because of a problematic programme or because someone was late for his speech. Always have plans B and C and D ready and be sure all these weaves all sectors as one. And because such event caters different fields, ensure that they all have ample time to talk about their concerns and share their thoughts. Be sure to get a couple of representatives from all of these sectors and if possible, all the invited companies and institutions pioneering in their field. This way, it’s going to be easy to solve any screwed up instances because you have professionals by your side.

Know the attendees well

They may be from the field of education but do you really know the school leaders you invited? Before he was head of this particular university, do you know how he started? It’s very important to do thorough research and study them. A multi-sectoral symposium doesn’t mean you don’t have to introduce your attendees well. In fact, you should exert extra efforts to let them know you’re one resinous host who does more than what his job requires.

Make everything flexible

Making everything flexible is next to difficult if you’re hosting such kind of an event. I mean, how would you make something flexible for both technological gurus and financial experts? But this is not impossible. Flexibility in this aspect is all about the versatility of the programme. Be sure that the speeches don’t sound too robotic even if it’s delivered by you – from the business field. Be sure that when you deliver your words, it comes out naturally and flows in such a way that you are addressing it to all attendees and sectors, not only to one.

Does Technology Harm Us?

environmental issues 2“Does Technology Harm Us?” This is by far one of the most common questions people have when it comes to technology and environment. The answer can be very complicated, which makes this a good debate topic as well. but when we have to give a YES or a NO, it’s quite obvious though – the answer I yes. Technology harms us and out earth in many ways human could ever imagine. As long as technology keeps on upgrading ad generating new products that claim to make our lives easier, it will continue to destroy the only place we’re living in and therefore, possibly destroy us to, in one way at least.

But we cannot put all the blame in technology. Because as mentioned, it is there mainly to make our lives easier. It is developed by people who want to make Earth a better place to live and they were successful. The problem here lies on how people use technology. Many of us are guilty of abusing its benefits and advantages. Many of us are guilty of purchasing highly technological items even if we don’t need it; and we just end up collecting clutter and piling them in the garage. These and many more incidents are forms of abuse to what science and tech can bring us. If not controlled, there’s big chance we and our future families will live in a polluted Earth often visited by unwanted calamities.

Take driving, for an example. Car, technology – two words you can easily coil. Most people prefer driving because it’s gets them wherever they want at a faster pace, plus it’s also more comfortable than walking. You don’t have to fry yourself under the heat of the sun. But who caused such strong heat anyway? It’s not used to be that warm on summer afternoons – these past years were different. Blame that to the rampant usage of cars even if not necessary. The black smoke and fumes that cars release are indeed black and evil to the earth for it causes holes in the atmosphere. More holes are equals to more entryway for sunlight, and this of course, means more sunlight and more heat.

Another would be gadget disposal. How do you throw away old batteries and other small devices at home that don’t work anymore? Let me guess – toss them in the garbage, right? Your garbage which might also include rotten fruits, leftovers and many other trash at home. If these devices especially old batteries are left unattended on the ground along with other garbage and under the heat of the sun, chances are the batteries will leak and chemicals will creep into the ground. The soil will be unhealthy enough to grow plants. The soil might just be eaten by enormous companies who have the money to buy them and build factories of all kind. Just imagine how much chemicals these factories are producing and definitely not all of them are following proper waste disposal. But in the first place, how come these factories were built? Because people take advantage of the fact that money can buy land and money can built things that will later on make them earn more.

So where’s the technology harm now? Everywhere. And who’s causing it? Initially – people. Us.

Small Changes With Big Earthly Effects

environmental issues 3Have you ever attended an environmental conference? If yes, then what have you observed? One of the most discussed agendas is how small things people do every day can make massive positive change for the Earth. You don’t have to be a scientist to be able to protect your own single planet; you just have to be a concerned citizen. This issue is what most environmental groups want the public to know – that even ordinary people can make big changes for the sake of Earth’s health. And what’s best about this is that you don’t have to spend anything, you just have to make minor lifestyle changes.

Perhaps the most common would be the 3 R’s – reuse, reduce and recycle. If every family in this country will just learn how to practice this 3 R’s by heart, there will be less trash and garbage and dumpsites will grow smaller and smaller. Plus, there will also be less garbage lying around cities. Just imagine how clean the world will be if people will earn how to reuse and recycle things.

Another minor change would be to avoid burning your trash. There are some people who are so fond of burning their trash with the belief that they are helping the earth. Well, you’re not. You’re just worsening the case by causing unhealthy smoke to reach the earth’s upper surface and damage it. Experts say the Ozone layer is now severely damaged already, add to that such activities as burning – things are just worsening. Aside from burning, fumes from cars also ruin the ozone layer. So instead of driving, if the distance is manageable, make it a habit to walk. If the sun is not too cruel or if the wind is not too cold, walking to your office is a great way to freshen up your mind. Nature has its own way of healing stress and walking through the streets is one great way to get in touch with nature.

You might also want to avoid using plastic too often. While grocery stores have brown bags, many other stores still have plastic. Instead of using these, you can consider using an eco-bag – which is far stronger and spacious. Plastics that are already at home are meant to be used again if possible, not thrown away easily. You can reuse them as trash bins in your room. This way, you don’t have to purchase garbage bags – which is by the way, another plastic item.

Taking care of the earth is one of the human responsibilities many people are forgetting about. Not because handy items are available doesn’t mean you can use them carelessly. Keep in mind that we only have one earth, and scientists and other experts are not magicians who can erase all problems earth has today. They’re just there to tell us how our planet is, and how we can make it better. Today, reports about environment are telling us only one thing – we need to make lifestyle changes soon to protect earth, before calamities caused by mankind would visit us.

Modern Marketing

business 1If we are to discuss marketing strategies, you might find yourself bored. First of all, this is the most common agendas in business symposiums, which means you already have a great idea on what it’s about. But we are more than a business symposium here thus; we make marketing talks more enjoyable. How? Through discussing a modern side of it that will make your company healthier and you and your people wealthier. With so many companies rising today and so many easy methods of putting but a business, your competitors are also multiplying. Thus, you should be the bane of their existence and you should know how to cause cacophony in their business. Positive cacophony that is – meaning you’re not ruining their thing and playing the wrong way.

Experiences rather than messages

One of today’s most effective marketing strategies – which is not commonly discussed in conferences – is the means of giving experience. Way back, marketing means talking about your product and your brand, persuading people to buy it, and talking only to the specific target market your product is aiming. Today, everything has changed. Today, you don’t just talk about it because people are busy and they don’t have time to sit and listen to you. marketing today means letting them experience what your product can do, and making them part of the product’s uses. Messages are made a lot shorter and once you got the consumers’ attention, you shift into letting them experience the product and in other words, getting hold of their attention. Now you’re not going to waste too much words anymore and just let the product do its thing.

Better platforms than mere branding

Branding used to be extremely important to all companies. even before they introduce their new product, usually they would first introduce the company and saying “we are the company that will change your life and this is our product that will make that happen.” Today, it doesn’t work that way anymore. Today, platforms are far more important that the brand, because these platforms carve the name of the brand and not the other way around. Companies are not practicing the method of sharing the product platform in the easiest way possible to make it understandable for many. Once their platform presentation worked, people will have their eyes gazing at how the product works. And as domino effect, a company or a brand will be known for such platform of high quality product.

Passionate, not rational

Marketing used to be all about rational thinking. Remember those companies providing pros and cons of stuff in their ads? That’s a form of rational thinking and what makes it effective is that they don’t exaggerate things. they don’t say “their product is just trash, our product will make your life better” but rather, they provide insights that will tick the minds of the viewers. That kind of marketing strategy is already overrated. Today, it’s all about passion – how the company cares for you, how a product works for your welfare AND the welfare of others, and many other similar ideas that target one’s emotions.

 

Building Your Own Business – Quite Easier These Days

business 2Have you ever considered building your own business instead of working for an already-established company? That’s one risky thought you have there, but it’s not impossible. In fact, it I highly possible and it is very easy. With today’s technology, everything is laid out straight and all you have to do is sort things out – which are the things you can use and which are not.

One of the best ways to start a business would be to educate yourself. Even if you’re already a professional, someone out there knows more than you do in the field you’re about to invade thus, better listen to these people. check out business symposiums happening around your town and learn from those who have already been standing for years. Even from the novice, make it a point to listen to what they can share. You never know, it might help your ideas burgeon, if not addled. Furthermore, conferences is also a great way to get in touch with people who might help you soon. Whether that’s a future partner or a further customer, this is the place that opens you to a bigger world of business.

It’s also advisable for starters to make use of the technology. If you’re unsure whether or not you can really do it, but you somehow feel you can, better check what technology has to offer. You can start online and create a website where you can sell your products, for instance. Online stores and websites are far easier to make than physical shop; plus, they’re not that risky too. in case it won’t work, you didn’t waste as much as you would have if you went straight on a physical store. All you need with this is extra patience and the right techniques to reach your target buyers. Make use of social media and other websites that allow you to sell. Believe it or not, many companies today started through social media and the transition from online business to real business is something so fast you might not even realize it.

Most business and finance experts also suggest novice to learn the art of maximizing. You should be clear of your purpose. You should have full understanding why you prefer building your own business, and what are your methods of making it succeed. Also, you should be clear on why you’re selling the products of your choice – it is hot in the market? Is it unique and beneficial? Having a concise mind makes it a lot easier to balance everything and making your business grow. Furthermore, it’s also advisable to allocate enough time pondering and observing. One of the most common concerns of modern businessmen is that they’re so busy absorbing all the positive things happening that they don’t have time to observe. If you’re using social media strategies for instance and you’re on the verge of getting known, make it a point to observe how social media works deep under. This way, you will continue being famous for your products and you can apply advance techniques to gain more clients.

Benefits of Art Exhibits
