Role of Technology in the Growth of Supply Chain Companies in India

Published

on

In India, supply chains hold a great importance in every business, especially in start up firms as it involves the coordination of all the activities like delivery of products, transportation of goods, inventory management, etc. With the introduction of advanced technology, the supply chain companies have enhanced their exposure in India and have created an impact with their exquisite services and work management processes. There are several ways in which technology has aided the rapid spread of these firms.

Enhanced Connectivity

The advancement in the field of technology has enabled all the people involved in the supply chain to connect with each other despite distant locations. Also, they can easily share the important status of their work every now and then with their seniors or their employees who are responsible for keeping an eye on their activities. The instant reporting of work, updating of work status, etc, all has been possible with the introduction of technology and advanced software.

Easy Tracking of Shipments

In the past years, it was difficult to connect with the delivery boys or know the status of your deliveries. With the increasing demands of the clients, several software were developed to facilitate people in knowing where their orders are. In the era of technology, it is possible for the clients as well as the senior employees to track the status of shipments without much hassle. Also, the customers can save the records of these shipments for future reference and can complain anytime in case of late deliveries.

Monitoring Warehousing Activities

With the increasing rate of thefts and natural calamities, it is crucial to keep a careful eye on the expensive belongings kept inside the warehouses. Nowadays, there are numerous electronic gadgets like CCTV cameras, satellites, electronic alarms, etc, through which the supply chain companies in India can monitor the activities going on in their inventories round the clock. In case of any thefts, the alarms automatically send alert messages to the management and hence prevent the products from getting destroyed or taken away by the criminals.

Effective Promotion through Social Media

There are numerous social media websites today that are regularly accessed by virtual audience. Promoting a supply chain company through the social media platforms can not only spread awareness about your business but also generate heavy traffic on your websites ultimately enhancing your business and reach in the digital world.

Build Strong Links

Supply chain management is not just limited to logistics and warehousing. It also includes building connections with as many people as possible to develop a strong chain of your business and ensure timely delivery of all your services. Through various websites and social media platforms, supply chain companies can connect with many prominent people not only in India but also at a global level.

Discussion of Ethics in the Classroom: 3 Fairytales to Spark Debate

Published

By

What better way to spark a spirited classroom debate on ethics than by exploring the complex messages often found in fairy tales?

Children enjoy a cozy familiarity with fairy tales. By basing a discussion of ethics on fairy tales, you are launching from common ground. Children aged eight and older typically are ready for meatier ethical concepts, concepts that skirt into gray areas of lesser evils or relative priorities.

Following are a few suggestions drawn from the land of fairy tales to get your students’ thought wheels spinning.

PUSS IN BOOTS: WHEN IS TRICKERY JUSTIFIED?

In the classic French fairy tale “Puss in boots,” a clever cat engineers a succession of hoaxes and lies for the benefit of his master. As a result, his master eventually marries the king’s daughter and appoints Puss in Boots prime minister. All parties live happily ever after.

You can print a text version of Puss in Boots from the Internet. A well-illustrated version of the story is also available in The Golden Book of Fairy Tales, by Marie Ponsot (Golden Books).

The story begins with the introduction of a young man whose poor father has died and left him with nothing but a cat named Puss in Boots. The cat proves tireless in his devotion to his master and begins by delivering a sequence of gifts (rabbits, pheasants, and other game) to the king and queen. Each time, Puss in Boots announces that the gifts are from “the Marquis of Carabas.” Naturally, the king comes to believe the Marquis of Carabas is a person of great consequence.

Here, you might ask young readers, “Was Puss in Boots wrong to lie to the king and to deceive him?” The absolute quality of honesty can be leveled against the compelling urges of loyalty and friendship.

After several clever tricks, Puss in Boots leads the king and his lovely young daughter to a castle belonging to an ogre. Running ahead of the group, the frisky feline dares the ogre to transform himself into a mouse. When the ogre successfully transforms himself, Puss in Boots promptly pounces on the hapless creature and devours him. That enables his young master, who arrives moments later with the king and his entourage, to claim that the castle is his own. In so doing, the young man clinches his nuptial prospects with the king’s daughter.

Here, you can further challenge your students: “Was the cat wrong to trick the ogre and then kill him?” Youngsters who argued earlier that the king was in no way damaged by the verbal deceptions and exaggerations of Puss in Boots must reckon with an act leading to an untimely death.

Finally, pose this question: “Is trickery ever justified?” Challenge students to support their positions, whatever they may be, with cogent arguments.

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK: WHAT IS STEALING?

This classic story offers a twist on the theme of honesty. We all know the story of young Jack, whose impoverished mother is left with nothing but the family cow. Jack is sent to market to trade the cow for as much money as he can. Jack is tricked into trading the cow for a handful of beans. In despair, his mother throws the worthless beans out the window.

Overnight, a giant beanstalk grows into the sky. When Jack climbs to the top of the beanstalk, he finds the home of a mean giant. Narrowly escaping from the giant with his life, Jack scampers down the beanstalk with two treasures stolen from the giant – a goose that lays golden eggs, and a magic harp. Thus, Jack happily secures the future for himself and his mother.

You might begin by reiterating that Jack faced imminent danger in the giant’s house (“Fee! Fi! Fo! Fum! I smell the blood of an Englishman!”). Ask: “Since the giant wanted to eat Jack, was it OK that Jack stole the giant’s goose and harp?”

Listen carefully to the arguments raised, pro and con. You might follow up with this remark: “Jack was an intruder in the giant’s house. Since Jack chose to enter the giant’s house, does that change your opinion?”

This exercise is also recommended: “Pretend you are the giant. Describe what happens when Jack arrives in your house and how you feel about it.”

In a 19th-century version of Jack and the Beanstalk, a fairy is introduced when Jack is climbing up the beanstalk. The fairy informs Jack that Jack’s father used to be a wealthy and prosperous landowner but a mean giant killed the father, stole everything his father owned, and reduced Jack’s mother and her infant son to poverty. That giant, according to the fairy, is the one who lives at the top of the beanstalk. By destroying the giant, Jack will restore his family wealth.

This version of the fairy tale opens another line of questioning: “In the story where the giant had stolen everything from Jack’s father, do you think it was OK for Jack to take it back?” Most youngsters will heartily agree.

Follow up with this question: “What if it had been the giant’s father who had stolen everything from Jack’s father; would it still be OK for Jack to take the treasures?” Then ask: “What if it had been the giant’s grandfather who had stolen everything from Jack’s grandfather?” And then ask: “What if it had been 100 years before that the giant’s ancestor had stolen everything? Do you think it would still be OK for Jack to take the treasures?” Try to find the amount of elapsed time necessary, according to students, to justify Jack’s taking the treasures. Challenge them to defend their point of view.

FROM THE ELEPHANT PIT: IS COMPASSION PRACTICAL?

There’s a folktale from Tibet, “From the Elephant Pit,” that raises the question of whether compassion is always a good idea.

The story tells the tale of a hunter who dug pits to catch and trap wild elephants. One day, he comes to the pit and discovers that trapped inside the elephant pit were a man, a lion, a mouse, a snake, and a falcon. The lion warns the hunter not to rescue the human. Says the lion: “I and the other animals will prove grateful to you and will help you for your kindness to us, so rescue them. But please leave the man in the pit, for I warn you, he will forget your kindness and do you harm.” However, the hunter rescues all the animals and the man.

The other animals, indeed, later repay the kindness to the hunter. As the lion had foretold, the man betrays him. At the end of the story, the betrayal of the man is revealed, the hunter is appointed chief hunter to the king, and all ends well.

Children are asked this question: “Do you think the hunter was better off because he rescued the man from the pit? If you think yes, why? If you think no, why not?”

Following is a sampling of responses from youngsters who responded:

  • “Yes, you should always save someone in need.” — Vance, age 10
  • “No, because if he would have left him he wouldn’t have gone through all that trouble.” — Tara, age 11
  • “No, because the man tricked the hunter and ruined his life.” — Newt, age 9
  • “Yes, because he did something very kind, which is the best reward anyone could get.” — Laura, age 10
  • “Yes, because he got to be the king’s top man.” –Shawn, age 7

TIPS FOR MANAGING A CLASSROOM DEBATE ON ETHICS

  • Before you begin a lesson that will lead to a debate about ethical issues, let children know that you are going to read a story and then you will be asking some questions about the story.
  • At the end of the story, allow children time to consider their personal responses to your questions, and ask each child to write down her or his response.
  • Break the class into small groups for discussion. Then hold a general discussion. You might want to list the arguments cited, pro and con, on different sides of your chalkboard or whiteboard.
  • Continue to look for opportunities in stories to raise questions for ethical debate. Your best source material will be stories that children already enjoy, such as fairytales and folk tales. However, modern stories and popular television shows and movies also provide opportunities for ethics duscussions.
  • Here’s a final rule of thumb: If the children enjoy a story, consider it a candidate for an ethics debate! Over time, as long as you keep those discussions alive, the capacity for youngsters to understand the complexities of ethical issues will grow.

Reverse Psychology and the Law of Attraction

Published

on

By

Is it possible to just ‘fake it’ and act like you are applying the Law of Attraction? What do you think?

The Law of Attraction is a simple concept: whatever you focus on in your life, and however you feel about things, will send a vibration out to the Universe that the Universe will match in like vibrations and bring back to you what you have been focusing on. Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it? Until you begin to apply it and you realize how the logical mind takes over and doesn’t want to focus on what you want. It wants to focus on the worst case scenario or the fear and worry of what you don’t have, but by focusing on the negative, the Universe brings negative back to you through the Law of Attraction. Is the Universe some mean entity that brings you negative? No, the Universe loves you and supports you in everything that you do and is on automatic when it comes to what it brings to you through vibration.

Whatever you vibrate out comes back to you in some form… always.

So the question is: if you are a negative person who is attempting to switch to the more positive side of life can you trick the LOA by using reverse psychology? Would it work like Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence? Tom Sawyer didn’t want to paint the fence but he acted as if he loved it so all his friends wanted to join in painting the fence because Tom used reverse psychology. Could you pretend you love something and focus on it when in fact you really feel the lack of what you want? Could you trick the LOA into thinking you were focusing on the joy of the want? Absolutely not.

The Universe knows you better than you know yourself. When you act as if you are wealthy but don’t believe it will happen that is exactly what will come back into your life over and over again until you make the decision to change your thoughts and feelings on wealth. You have to change within in order for the Law of Attraction to work in your life the way that you want it to. The Law of Attraction is working all the time in your life. It just may not be exactly how you want it to work. You may be focusing on the lack of what you don’t have or the negative of your life and the Universe is bringing you what you are focusing on no matter what you think. There is no discrimination with the Universe. It is just answering your call that you are sending out.

Using reverse psychology will not further your efforts in the Law of Attraction. You have to work on yourself. The more honest work you do within, the more you will break down obstacles that seem to be in your way of getting what you desire. Tricking the Universe will only bring you more trickiness.

Dig deep within your own self, change those repetitive mental patterns that you don’t need anymore, and create new thoughts and feelings that will reflect the life that you want. You don’t have to use reverse psychology to get what you want. Just work on who you want to be and the Universe will match your vibration with the Law of Attraction.

Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats

Published

By

A dog is truly a man’s best friend. They are very useful to humans. They can be great companions and very good guardians. They are definitely better pets than cats. Below are many reasons why dogs are better than cats as pets.

To start with, dogs are associated with safety. This is mainly because of their hearing and smell being sensitive. Having a dog as a pet is like having a 24 hour watchman in your house. They guard you and your house even when you are asleep. If they sense danger they begin to bark making you alert. Anyone who has a pet dog at home feels safer. This is definitely not the case if you have a cat as a pet.

Dogs are a much more loyal and caring pet as compared to cats. A dog understands you and your emotions very well. If you are sad, you can talk to him about your worries. They are wonderful listeners. They will listen attentively to each and every word. He’ll also try to comfort you and change your mood. On the other hand a cat neither understands you nor is bothered about the way you feel.

Dogs are very affectionate animals. They never hold any grudges. The moment you come back from work your dog will be happy to see you. He will show his happiness by jumping on you and licking your legs and face. A cat on the other hand is revengeful in nature. They can even ignore you for weeks.

Whenever you feel like, you can take your dog for a lovely refreshing walk. Dogs like to go for walks whereas cats are mostly inclined to be indoors. Dogs are also very playful in nature. You can play with them the whole day. You would not be able to do the same if you had a cat as a pet as they are laid back and prefer lazing about. Also cats are fussy eaters while a dog would eat anything.

Another reason why dogs are better than cats as pets is because, dogs are smarter. They can be trained more easily than a cat. They have the ability to learn tricks and commands very fast. Once trained a dog would be helpful enough to even bring your slippers or fetch your papers if you ask him to. A cat on the other hand will totally ignore you as they are arrogant in nature.

Dogs love their owners wholeheartedly. They cannot see anyone harming them. They will begin wagging their tails even if someone looks at their owners. Being such loyal animals they would go to any extent to defend their owners. However, if you have a cat as a pet you cannot expect the same. Cats usually would try to sneak away. All these definitely prove that as pets dogs are far more superior to cats. After all, it’s not simply said that a “Dog is a man’s best friend”. Dogs will give you unconditional love until the day they die.

Stop Bedwetting and ADHD Behaviors – Start Probiotics For Children

Published

on

By

My son comes from a long line of bedwetters. I can’t count the hours of lost sleep from waking him up to go potty. I can’t count the number of quarters I spent washing the sheets. The pediatrician told me not to worry because the bladder doesn’t mature until age 7. I would invite her to help me drag the sheets up and down four flights of stairs every time the bed was wet. I personally had better things to do with my time every night after work than wash sheets. I would rather be investing my time and my money in a home business and spending quality time with my son in the park so he could run off his energy.

I learned from a video called Fed Up with Children’s Behavior by Sue Dengate, that food dyes and other chemical additives irritate the bladder and cause hyperactivity and aggression. I learned from my preschool that there are simple exercises that integrate a primitive reflex called the Spinal Galant reflex. So, I put my whole family on an additive free diet and did the wiggle worm exercise with my son.

The bedwetting eventually stopped altogether.

Then, my son broke his arm. The bone punctured the skin, so the doctors put him on antibiotics while he was in the hospital. He got two iv’s full of antibiotics for a tiny puncture wound.

In the hospital, he woke up constantly to go to the bathroom because of being on iv’s after the surgery.

When we got home, he started wetting the bed again.

Even if I took him potty in the middle of the night, he still wet the bed.

Then, he spiked a high fever and got an ear infection and pink eye.

The doctors put him on more antibiotics.

(It took a room full of doctors and nurses almost an hour for to find an antibiotic without artificial colors.)

I knew from Dianne Craft’s cd The Biology of Behavior that antibiotics cause yeast overgrowth and bring down the body’s defenses and cause ADHD behavior such as hyperactivity and aggression. I had previouisly been giving my son acidophilus tablets because he was very hyperactive. But, since we started an additive free diet, I didn’t rely on the probiotics so much.

Finally, when he was too sick to go to his birthday party, I took him anyways and let the fresh air and sunshine and good old fashioned friends cure him of his misery. I decided from that point that I would not continue the antibiotics.

I doubled up on the acidophilus tablets and served him kefir smoothies to clear his system of the antibiotics and of the sicknesses. Acidophilus tablets contain a milk loving bacteria that break down the protein in milk and restore a healthy balance of flora in the intestine. Cultured milk products, like kefir, yogurt and cheese, contain lactobacillus acidophilus as well as other cultures that help the body control overgrowth of candida albicans and candidiasis.

A couple days later, the bedwetting stopped. He didn’t get sick again, either. I exposed him to as much fresh air and sunshine as possible to keep his spirits high and to keep him active.

Then, when he went in to get his splint changed to a cast, the doctors wanted to prescribe more antibiotics.

FOR WHAT?!! For the surgery, they said. I about fell out of my chair. Antibiotics for cutting off a splint and covering the arm with a cast?

I declined the prescription. My son has been waking up dry and healthy ever since.

So, think twice before giving your child antibiotics. Consult with your pediatrician. If you decide to use anitbiotics, consider the use of acidophilus and cultured milk products, such as kefir, yogurt and cheese in conjunction with antibiotics. Be sure to ask for a variety of antibiotics without food dyes. There is a generic version of Amoxycillin that comes in a white chewable tablet that tastes like sweet tarts.

Traditional societies have used cultured milk products for centuries for health and vitality. So, it makes sense that we should, too. Continue the use of acidophilus, especially after finishing a prescription of antibiotics to restore the balance of healthy flora in the intestine. Make cultured milk products a part of your family’s daily diet.

Stop wasting time and hard earned money washing sheets. You could be working from home and investing in your future with all the time you waste changing the bedding and washing sheets. You could be enjoying quality time with your peaceful child who used to be an ADHD child.

Articles Submission Strategy or Where To Submit Your Article

Published

on

By

When you are seriously decided to work on your website ranking, you should understand very simple thing – you can’t move yourself on the top through some tricks and doing nothing after this – instead you have to contribute to your product consumers community by giving them really new and important information and you have to make it publicly known by placing non-commercial news in media portals. And the common format for this type of community work is Article. Obviously the more articles the better, however the quality of article, and unfortunately in nowadays reality there is such thing as Search Engine Optimization or SEO, which allows you to play on the some holes or weaknesses in internet search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, MSN. You could expect that in the future the gap will be sealed up, but for our epoch we would like to give you some hints:

1. Why Article? Because article format dictates minimum of advertisement and maximum of new knowledge or author contribution as trusted source of information. This is the reason why article has more trust and potentially get your website higher than other types of news. Also article is typically syndicated and you may expect your article to show up on more websites than where you submitted it.

2. Should I support article with photos and video? Yes, ideally you should, however at this time majority of leading article media sites do not have video upload option, and are limited in pictures upload support. As time goes we expect media portals will be switching to new article formats. However article is not a video or photo blog – again article has new knowledge, while blog is more about author impression or amateur fiction

3. Where to submit your articles. There are a lot of competing websites. You should do you due diligence and analyze the page rank of the media portal – it should be higher than two at least. In some cases you should make an exception and try new and very promising site to see how your article will be ranked by Google for instance

4. SEO tricks. We really don’t like this gap in internet search engines, however it is obvious – if you place high density of your keywords in the article header and master to publish this article in high ranked media portals – you will be ahead of competition.

Tips on Managing Your Workforce Remotely

Published

on

By

So many people are now working from home (WFH) 100% of the time. Hopefully if this is the case for you, you can maintain productivity and stay positive during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While a lot of us are used to living the entrepreneur life from a home office, it’s still a big adjustment to have to self-isolate and stop all face-to-face interactions with coworkers and clients.

I encourage you to use this time to take a closer look at your overall business goals, focus on your health (both physical and mental) and self-care, and enjoy some family time at home.

I think many small business owners are having to pivot their marketing strategy, and what they do when the coronavirus passes could look quite different from what they did before.

I wanted to share some useful tech tools that can make your day-to-day WFH life much easier.

Team Communication Tools

This is probably the biggest WFH product decision you’ll have to make. Your team needs a reliable and easy-to-use tool that lets them instantly message coworkers. The right one for you depends on your business needs and challenges, team size and budget.

1. You may have heard of Slack. This tool gives you the ability to create channels around multiple topics and invite users. From marketing content ideas to social media tactics to office dog photos, your team can create relevant channels for easy chat and collaboration.

It also integrates with many useful tools, including Outlook Calendar, Twitter, HubSpot and Salesforce, so you can see what’s going on at all times right in the Slack app (no need to click in and out of your daily calendar or Twitter feed, for example). There are SO MANY fun and creative emojis you can use too, making remote messaging in a challenging time like this a little more lighthearted.

2. Another popular platform is Discord. Popular with gamers, this voice, video and text tool isn’t just for talking to coworkers, but for finding like-minded communities and new friends. You can create “servers” and “channels” for specific topics, similarly like you do for Slack channels. While Slack has more business integrations, Discord has voice channels, so you can easily chat with team members. Discord also lets you set user roles and permissions.

3. Flock is a cloud-based team communication tool with video and audio calling, screen sharing, text chat, integration with other business applications and more. You can tag colleagues in comments and to-do lists, upload documents, images and videos and set reminders and due dates. Polls, code snippet sharing and group discussions are available, and it integrates with other apps such as Trello, Github, Google Drive and Asana.

Team Collaboration Tools

Your employees need to be able to share their work, whether they’re creating on a marketing strategy or editing a press release. Here are a few that might fit your small business needs.

1. G Suite is a Google product that’s made up of cloud computing, productivity and collaboration tools, software and products. In one suite of tools, it offers email, word processing, spreadsheets, presentation decks, shared calendars, cloud storage, and more.

You can comment and make suggestions on specific documents through Google Sheets and Docs, edit documents online simultaneously and collaborate on projects and documents. It’s easy to give users permission to specific files.

2. Evernote: This is more than a note-taking app. Evernote helps you capture, prioritize and share ideas, track projects and to-do lists. I find it super helpful for note-taking, obviously, but also as a sort of “digital filing cabinet” that simplifies organization. There’s a free, basic and business package available.

CRM Tools

CRM stands for “customer relationship management,” and CRM tools help you with things like inbound lead management, sales tracking, social tracking and eNewsletter delivery. Here are three to consider:

1. MailChimp is an all-in-one marketing platform with tools to create everything from emails to postcards. They have a great selection of templates to choose from that can then be further modified to suit your brand. Their intuitive interface and thorough reporting are great, but things can get expensive as your subscriber list or number of emails increase. You can compare their different plans on their website.

2. Constant Contact has always been a big rival with MailChimp to be the brand name in email marketing. It’s a huge company and a great option if Facebook is a big part of your online marketing strategy. Constant Contact has an email option that is designed so users can easily share your newsletter on Facebook.

This option can be considered the most social media-friendly and has all the major features of the others noted. If your online marketing involves Hootsuite (you can integrate this into Hootsuite) and you focus your efforts on gaining traction on social media then this is a great newsletter tool for you.

3. AWeber is an extremely popular option and recommended by many professional marketing companies. It gives you five plans to choose from and a long list of features such as unlimited email marketing campaigns, follow-ups, lists and Auto Responders.

Many people believe their Auto Responder platform is superior to other companies, allowing businesses to automate the process of delivering personalized emails to customers on a schedule.

Project Management Tools

A collaborative task management tool lets everyone track and manage all of their projects. Think of it as an online scheduler, taskmaster, and collaboration tool to manage your team’s workflows.

1. Asana is one of the leading tools and gets a lot of positive feedback. It allows everyone on your team to follow the whole workflow of a project in an easy visual tool. You’ll always know where your team is at and who’s responsible for what and when.

From daily reminders on a task that’s due, to the ability to easily add collaborators or assign teammates a sub-task of a project, Asana makes it simple to see what everyone’s day, week and month looks like (but you can easily move things around if plans change).

2. Monday.com is a pretty simple, intuitive visual team management tool (it’s really a project management platform). It runs processes, workflows, and projects in one digital workspace. Visually, it looks the same as a collection of very customized spreadsheets, in which every team member can log their tasks and update them with status reports and other relevant information.

That means that every person can see all active tasks and keep count on their progress. Team members can work on multiple projects without getting lost by using Monday’s weekly overview. The workflow can be customized just about any way you want it to communicate priority, what’s done, not done and so on. The colourful designs and big buttons don’t hurt either!

Social Media Management Tools

Many small businesses will already have a social media management tool set up. A social media management tool allows you to manage all of your accounts from one dashboard, which saves you both time and frustration. These tools share your content at the best possible times throughout the day, so your followers and fans see your updates more often. It’s a smarter and more efficient way to schedule and share your social media posts.

The best part about these tools is the built-in analytics system, which will give you a glimpse into what’s performing well, and when your social media posts are making the most impact.

Here are two social media management tools I personally use:

1. Buffer shows your scheduled posts and analytics (how in-depth those analytics get depends on the plan you choose). Many small business owners choose Buffer because of its sleek, clean interface that’s easy for beginners to get the hang of.

2. I find that while Buffer is great for less demanding social media needs, Hootsuite is where it’s at if you want to see your timelines, replies, and more across all your social networks.

Both Buffer and Hootsuite offer free and paid plans, so you can always try them out and see which one feels like a better fit for your small business.

***

And while it’s not a tool your entire workforce might use, I’m liking MoneyMinderOnline during these uncertain times. It not only gives you a place to track your spending, but you also get insights into your spending habits, and you can look ahead to improve your cash flow, clear your debt, and start saving for your big goals.

I hope I’ve given you an overview of some tools that will help boost your team’s productivity and morale while you’re all working from home. You may also benefit from our article on boosting business efficiency on our website.

Premature Ejaculation Treatment – Does Indian God Lotion Work?

Published

on

By

Premature ejaculation is one of those problems that nobody likes to talk about yet it is the most common sexual problem known. Sadly the fact that it is hidden means it is more difficult to find successful treatments and cures and many people are sucked in by the hype of some products as an easy way out of an unfortunate situation. One of the products that has some myth around it is Indian God Lotion so does it actually work?

Indian God Lotion does have its place as a temporary solution to premature ejaculation as when you look into reviews it seems that men do have results and are able to last longer however you need to consider the pro’s and con’s before looking into using it.  

Indian God Lotion – Pros

  • Non greasy – This is a spray that you use at least 60 minutes before intercourse, when dry you will be unaware it is there.
  • Desensitises – Enables you to last longer as it desensitises the sensitive areas that can cause premature ejaculation.
  • Natural – The manufacturers state that only natural ingredients are used in the product – so no harmful drugs!
  • Reviews posted on the internet form men who have found success with the product.

Indian God Lotion – Cons 

  • Not a permanent solution – The best cures for premature ejaculation are the natural programs that treat the cause of premature ejaculation and teach you how to overcome these problems permanently (check out the links in my signature for the best ones)
  • Desensitising means that you may not get the full enjoyment form sexual intercourse that you had hope as some of the feelings will be lost.
  • Time it takes to work – This product is no good for spur of the moment encounters. You need to spry twice once 60 mins before intercourse and another 30 minutes before intercourse. Will this fit into you relationship or will you find this problematic in planning your lovemaking.
  • Little scientific evidence that it actually works, could be a psychological influence

For me it seems there is a place for Indian God Lotion but it must be viewed as a temporary solution or treatment for premature ejaculation as it does not get to the root of the problem. It will  not provide the permanent solution which is a much better outcome. After all wouldn’t it be wonderful to make love whenever you want with no worries of having to plan in order to time the ‘sprays’ correctly. There is also little scientific evidence that this spray actually works.    In order for you to achieve your desired result I would recommend you click on the links in my signature to say goodbye to premature ejaculation once and for all.

Cool Tips Before Getting Home With the Newborn

Published

on

By

Kudos to all your enterprising skills but there is still a lot more to do. The final trimester is actually more of fun as you start planning on how to take care of your baby. There are e-books to read, cool tips on nursing, importance of breastfeeding lessons and new born care. The checklist seems an exhaustive one but once you are a parent the instinct gets honed sharper and adaptation is easy.

A support system is of utmost importance. So engage in the services of a helper and cook for a few months. It is also good if you can talk to a relative who can stay with you for a few months. Broken sleep is a going to be commonplace, but as soon as the baby settles you will find yourself with more time. Carpentry or paint work needs to be done well in advance. Fixing leaks or repairing chipped wallpaper is a must so that there are no allergens. Babies grow very soon and soon your new born will crawl, so try and make your home as child friendly rooms with corner cushions for sharp edged furniture, check on the sliding windows and kitchen cabinets and discard wobbly furniture. Also child proof all electrical sockets and invest in other baby proofing products.

Here are a few things you need to put in place before getting home with newborn:

For the baby

• A good paediatrician.

• Name and address of a neo-natal hospital.

• A cupboard or additional/new storage space.

Advantages of Buying a Pit Bike Over Traditional Japanese Bike

Published

on

By

Pit bikes became popular 5-6 years ago and flooded the market. They are still popular today because they provide several advantages over buying a traditional Japanese bike. These factors will always allow Pit bikes to remain a strong force in the low end market.

These advantages are:

1. Price

2. Entry level into motocross for the beginner

3. Spare parts are real cheap

4. Most Parts are generic

With the average 125 Pit bike costing $600-$800 for a good quality model which can take up to 80kg weight, pretty much any teenager can afford this. The equivalent in a Japanese bike would be a 90cc which has no where as much power and the parts cost an arm and a leg.

This is a great opportunity for Newbie motocross enthusiasts who want to try the sport of motocross.  They can ride in the import class with a total investment under $2,000 to get started. This would include, Bike, Helmet, pants, jersey, Boots, gloves, goggles etc. You no longer need to spend $5-7K to get started. In fact the total price to get started in pit bike racing is still less than the cost of a Japanese bike alone.

Spare parts are cheap as chips. Because of the market and economy the way it is right now you can actually buy a 2nd Pit bike off eBay and strip it completely for parts at a faction of the cost it would cost for a Japanese Bike. Obviously Japanese Bikes are higher quality but Dollar vs. value Pit bikes will always come ahead.

95% of Pit bikes are made in China. The Chinese, in all there wisdom copy the same technology from each other instead of customizing the parts like the Japanese which means 99% of Pit bikes either bought from different sellers or different brand names will fit generically. I.E Plastic fairings, Fuel tank, rims, Tyre’s, forks, frame etc.

So if you are considering buying a China Pit bike it basically comes down to this. You are buying a cheaper quality bike compared to Japanese but for the price and application you are using the bike for, the investment is worth it.

Check out the leading brands in the market like Motovert, Puzey, Terra Moto. I suggest spend that little extra and get the better quality models which will still be 1/4 of the price of the Japanese bike. You can buy 4 Pit bikes for 1 Japanese Bike. You can’t lose.

Free Handheld Wi-Fi Analyzer

Published

By

How do you choose the best Wi-Fi hotspot from all the ones your phone tells you are available, create a detailed coverage map of your SOHO (Small Home/Small Office) network or decide which is the best channel for it? All you need is an Android mobile device and a Wi-Fi analyzer app.

Search Google Play for a list of Wi-Fi analyzer apps. Wi-Fi Analyzer, developed by Kevin Yuan of farproc, heads the list with more than 10,000,000 downloads. Among its many features are the ability to display a visual graph of all active access points in your area, their SSID names, signal strength, channel numbers, MAC addresses and the type of security encryption they use. The app is easy to operate even if you aren’t technically inclined. Measurements might not be lab quality, but all we really need to solve problems are consistent relative readings.

If you’re looking to do this with your iPhone you may be disappointed. Recent changes to the iOS operating system block access to private frameworks that app writers need to duplicate these functions. If you happen to have an older iPhone that hasn’t been upgraded beyond iOS 4 there are similar apps you can use. As a last resort, there are applications for desktop and laptop Macs that will do the same job. You’ll just have to lug bigger equipment around. To keep things simple, I’ll give instructions based on farproc’s Wi-Fi Analyzer app. The other apps should work almost the same if you search through their menus for similar features.

Use the ‘Channel Graph’ view to find a good hotspot. It’s the default screen that comes up when you run the app. In case it isn’t, press the menu soft key (it looks like an eye) and select ‘Channel Graph’. You will now see a graphical display of all available networks. Of course you want a strong one that rises above the rest but if you also want one that doesn’t require a password, look for a ‘*’ beside the SSID. This is an option so you may have to turn it on in the ‘Settings’ menu. If there is no obvious choice, like the one operated by the place of business you’re in, watch the screen for a while to see which ones give a consistent signal. Weaker ones could drop out completely after a few seconds. Hopefully there’ll be a suitable network, on one of the three channels with the least amount of overlap (1, 6 and 11), on the 2.4 GHz band. You can also look at what’s happening on the 5 GHz band by tapping the top left corner. For some reason there’s no icon there unless you touch it.

Now that you have a good idea how to use Wi-Fi Analyzer, try making a coverage map of your home or office wireless network. You may find it easier to switch to ‘Signal Meter’ mode. It measures only one signal at a time so make sure it’s yours. If not, press and hold the network name, choose ‘Select AP’ from the menu then select your network.

Have a printed layout of your all your rooms then go from place to place and take readings at each one. Be sure to allow the meter to stabilize before you record a measurement. That could take 15 or more seconds. If it keeps going up and down use the lowest reading for your map. Make sure all your readings come from the same phone so everything is relative to the same starting point. When you’re done you will easily see where the problems are. You can now take the necessary steps to fix them.

To see if you can improve wireless network performance, go to the ‘Channel Rating’ screen. It rates all the available channels on a scale of 1 to 10. The higher the rating, the less interference on that channel. Monitor the screen as it rates all channels in real-time, updating continuously as conditions change. Once again, make sure it’s set to your network. Press and hold the network name to change it.

You don’t have to “call the guy” to do this kind of Wi-Fi testing and configuration. A simple app like Wi-Fi Analyzer gives you the ability to do it yourself, saving time and money. And as an added bonus, you can still take calls while you’re doing it.
