I thought I was against Outsourcing. Then, I learned I was actually against offshoring. Now, I’m not necessarily against either. Funny how things change, isn’t it? I was confusing IT outsourcing with offshoring for the longest time– for some reason, I just assumed that they were one in the same. But they’re not. The issues that I have with offshoring, absolutely do not apply to Outsourcing. As a matter of fact, with certain Fields, including software engineering and other types of programming, I am starting to believe that the way of the future is absolutely through Outsourcing. I’ve been reading up on this a lot lately, and trying to Crunch the numbers. A lot of people I know are beginning to use Freelancers and their basic business operations, rather than hiring full-time staffers for certain elements of their Communications departments and other such things… I think, in the history of humanity, it has constantly been proved that people fear change. I don’t think that there’s very much weight in any argument that would try to refute that claim. I think the shift to a freelancer based, Outsourcing economy is becoming more and more real. Rather than complaining about it, we need to start forming strong teams if we want to resist, or, if we’re workers and not managers, we need to start tailoring or career plans to the possibility of freelancing and specialized labor. The days of old are gone, just as they always were, and always will be. Certain friends will remain Eternal, I think, but the way that they manifest will continue to shift. That’s just my 2 cents on the matter, but I can tell you right now that I am in the search for some independent contractors to do my work at an extremely high level, and although I’ve not started offshoring, I don’t doubt that eventually I may be swayed to do so.
So, I think this is the greatest Elektroroller company. They allow you to design your own electric scooter, and then they deliver it right to your door.

It comes in one piece, and all you have to do is add a license plate to the thing. It is spectacular. I had such a positive experience with UNU, and I support anybody who is trying to create a world that uses less oil and gas, specifically for transportation.

I was shocked to learn how convenient was to plug one of these into a wall. They use regular outlets, and it only takes 5 hours to charge your vehicle to go for 50 kilometers, which is what most City people drive in about a three-day period. Where will you go? You can go anywhere you want within the city. You can’t leave the city, as these things top out at about 45 kilometers an hour, and you would not be too safe on many major highways.

These changes may result in increasing or decreasing the number of app downloads, or either loosing either gaining higher position in the list.
Apps with 4 and more stars are quite competitive on getting higher ranking, while those with 3 stars and less have dropped down on the list. Those apps that were middle rated didn’t have any affection.
- Determining the app rank
Two essential factors help for the determination of the app ranking: download velocity and download volume. If the app had a good older version, but there was out a new, updated one, the ranking might have negative reviews since the newer versions affect the number of downloads and the popularity of the app.

Well, son of a gun. This is a pretty good little burner.
I’ve got to say, I don’t necessarily prefer a single-burner stove over something a little more substantial, but I do think that this is a fine example of a portable stove.
Fully approved by the CPA, this is an extremely portable, simple, and dependable choice– specifically if you’re looking for a single burner. This flashy stove is well designed, and is totally slick in its appearance, but it is also very high functioning. The BTUs leave a bit to be desired, maxing out at a level of generating 9000, but that’s really all you need for basic camping and outdoor activities, anyway.
In case you can’t tell by the name, it’s a gas stove, and it ignites with the ever popular Piezo type starter, which is an electric ignition. The gas used is butane, which can be slightly annoying to track down at times; ask around, do some research, and find a retailer to stock up from. Butane tanks aren’t quite as prominent as propane tanks in most areas, but once you find a few sources this should refrain from being an issue. Regardless, don’t let a lack of matches or a lighter keep you hungry in the dark, just make sure to bring the fuel!
Included in the insanely affordable cost of under $30 is a black carrying case which acts an incredibly convenient storage container for the stove. Even without this addition, this 3 pound stove would be earning portability points, but the case certainly helps. Speaking of size, this guy really is quite diminutive in nature– with dimensions of 11.2 x 4.4 x 13.5 inches, those portability points just keep on wracking up. It’s made from stainless steel, though, and is quite durable and dependable, despite its small stature. Also, it will fit your 13 inch pans comfortably, but it wouldn’t be wise to go much bigger than that!
To tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure what I’d think about this portable stove. I was pretty skeptical when I first examined it, though I was at least a bit intrigued by the aesthetic of the thing. But, to tell you the truth again, that skepticism was ill-founded, and this is an absolutely fantastic burner. If you’re looking for a safe, simple, durable little unit to do some basic outdoor cooking on, I will put the name of Survival Cooking on the line with confidence and say that this is a fine selection. At $25, you can’t go wrong with a Gas One portable stove.
Why Google Loves Content
Google loves good quality content because it’s how you communicate with your visitors.
According to Google, quality content does the following:
- Brings visitors back
- Brings in new visitors
- Creates word of mouth buzz
So publish useful content around targeted keywords and keep updating it!
Why Longer Blogs are Better
The latest SEO research shows that longer blogs get better results. Google ranks longer blogs (1500-2000 words) higher than shorter blogs (500 words) − and audiences enjoy the in-depth comprehensive content. Of course, it has to be quality content. Nobody wants to read 2000 words of fluff. But they DO want to be educated. Some people from Rankd, SEO New Zealand, still argues that you can rank with short posts as well.
Several SEO bloggers have recently conducted research about the effect of word count on SERPs. Let’s take a look at what they found:
- On quicksprout.com, Neil Patel saw a 1,122 percent growth when he increased word count in his posts to over 2,000 words.
- After analyzing top 10 Google search results for more than 20,000 words, SerpIQ found that content length had a direct correlation to search engine result ranking.
SerpIQ also noticed that Google doesn’t like long copy because it thinks it may be more valuable-it really is more valuable. In fact, the average word count in the most liked posts was 2416 to 2494 words:
Even social media prefers longer content!
Quick Sprout separated 327 of their posts into two categories: >1500 words and <1500 words. Posts with over 1500 words received 22.6 more Facebook likes and 68.1 percent more Tweets than those with fewer than 1,500 words.
The Co-Schedule Blog also did an experiment to find out whether more words means more searches. The author chose six keywords that a content marketer might use to increase inbound traffic and measured the top 10 search results. Next, he charted the:
- Number of words
- Page authority score
- Domain authority score
- Total number of back links
On average, long-form content ranked higher than shorter pages. The pages in the top 5 had an average of 2000 words per page.
Google makes the assumption that longer pages equal more quality. People like in-depth info and they will choose it over short 500-word articles. But if it isn’t good, they won’t be coming back. And you want them to come back!
So make sure you publish quality content centred on high-value keywords for your business. That means you need to choose topics that lend themselves to 1500+ words. You never want to force.
Beacons are wireless, small broadcasting devices transmitting a data signal to be received by a Smartphone. Once the Smartphone and beacon connect a service provider or retailer, it can instantly deliver a discount or welcome message.
Owing to this versatility, it is expected by the 2018 end, there will be nearly 4.5 million beacons installed in the United States, is expected and nearly 3.5 million users will include the brick and mortar retailers. Now, understanding how beacons work is important. Right now iBeacon of Apple and Eddystone of Google are the developers.
Employing BLE, Bluetooth low energy signal, an app is triggered such that it delivers the targeted offers meant to promote customers into buying more as they visit the retail store, business or restaurant. Beacon marketing can be used to deliver useful and promotional content to customers as they wait for service or they wish to shop or even to reward frequent visitors.
Where are beacons used?
Beacons can be used where there is value created by delivering digital information or content relevant to a particular location. This is applicable to stadiums, museums, trade shows, conferences, inside offices and banks, where there is more of walk-in traffic.
What results does it produce?
Major retailers such as McDonalds inform that they can see 30 % purchase rates and 60% engagement rates for beacon promoted offers sent to shoppers of in-store and messages. Shoppers who received mobile content that was beacon promoted revealed that there was an increase in the likelihood of purchase during the visits. However, more shoppers also informed that the campaigns of beacon marketing also are a reason to visit a store often and to spend money, and this means beacon is driving the sales revenue up.
What is the tech cost?
The beacon transmitters are actually inexpensive, retailing for $20 – $40. The actual expense for the businesses depends on the software licensing cost and the media expense that is associated with paying for third-party app providers to deliver and create the messages to their mobile users. The actual costs for this mobile advertising new form are sure to be comparable to other investments of marketing such as digital advertising and email platforms.
The owners of small business should stay alert on the developments, as the beacons development is just in the infancy. It is matter of time that the technology and costs are being reasonably affordable to small businesses. This is also a fact of time that the customers are conditioned to anticipate an offer to be received on their phone the moment they walk in the door.

Recliner wheelchair comes in both manual and electric form. It allows the person to move the backrest at different angles to establish a comfortable position.
People suffering from medical conditions like a hip extension, arthritis or orthostatic hypotension would find a recliner to be ideal for them.
A full-time recliner wheelchair
Many people have been wondering if a recliner wheelchair could be used full time, instead of a standard wheelchair. Those who have experience sitting in a wheelchair would know the importance of it being comfortable. Reclining wheelchairs are designed to for people who wish to increase their blood circulation while suffering from hypotension or other orthopedic conditions.
Recliner wheelchairs with incremental angle positions prevent exertion. Such chairs give the occupant several angles and positions to enjoy. It is beyond comfortable if compared with the conventional wheelchair seating system. It comes with a back support that is essential for people with back and hip injuries.
When suffering from back pain, any light movement can build pressure that is extremely painful. Recline wheelchair prevents this pressure by distributing the blood flow throughout the body, because of a comfortable position.
Long term seating on a wheelchair is in itself, a cause of several back and hip joints problem. Replace it with a recliner and your body would feel more comfortable when sitting on a chair that is well padded and designed for the optimum level of comfort.

Hypotension has become a common problem in the US. Recliner wheelchairs being the best recliners are bale to alleviate hypotension.
Oral health and E-Cigarette?
The debate of whether or not E-cigarette is safer and better has been often carried to our Burnaby dentist. Users often think of E-cigarette to be a healthier choice. It is believed that they satisfy the nicotine cravings of the users and are convenient in terms of health. But have you ever thought about the negative side of this cigarette?
What are E-Cigarettes all about?
These are battery powered devices that mimic cigarettes. They come in a different range of colors, shapes, and sizes. These cigarettes do not contain tobacco but have a liquid which produces a vapor that gives the sensation of smoking. Smoking an E-cigarette is also regarded as Vaping. This glows similar to that of a traditional smoke. These cigarettes contain different flavors and chemical compounds like propylene, nicotine and other such ingredients.
In many countries, these cigarettes are illegal as considered unsafe by Health department. It is often discussed that these cigarettes can be a cause of oral cancer caused by the liquid it contains. Although it is not discouraged, but the harmful effects seem obvious. The harmful effect includes:
– It reduces the production of saliva which results in having a dry mouth. The lack of hydration can cause multiple oral problems. It breeds bacteria.
– Saliva is natural cleansing agent which prevents enamel erosion and contributes to the prevention of bad mouth odor. Dry mouth is a cause of enamel erosion.
– Dry mouth also causes tooth decay, loss of teeth, gingivitis and other periodontal diseases. Some of these cigarettes also contain a little amount of nicotine which damages the tongue, gums, and mouth
So should you smoke it?
If you have little knowledge about the actual effect of these cigarettes, it is best to avoid using it. The artificial flavoring and chemical compounds can sit between your teeth for a long time which eventually starts eroding your teeth. Smoking in all forms is dangerous for health, and especially for the oral health. The long-term use of these apparently assumed smoking alternative can have equally adverse health effects. Another study also reported that it reduces the ability to tongue to detect taste. The taste buds (neurons) start to slow down which later becomes a cause of cancer and other mouth related tumors. Therefore our Burnaby dentist provides that it is best to avoid it to prevent different oral diseases.
