Women Leaders


Most countries are deep rooted and at some level driven by their respective cultures. In many cultures, even today, women going out to work are not preferred. Well, a lot has changed and compelled women to go out and start working. Initially, there were too many hiccups about the kinds of work women got but as time passed by; women were spotted in pretty much all industries one can think of. Today, all over the world, women hold significant positions in industries like aviation, entertainment, sports, automobile, media, writing and editing, fashion and most importantly, computers.

For several years, it was assumed that women can do fabulous work with other jobs but they may not be competent at computers. Ironically, a large segment of societies in many countries still believe that women cannot head business, work and people. They assume and live with a notion that a woman’s place is in the kitchen making banana milk shake for her family using a juicer and a slow cooker and not at a posh city corporate boardroom. After years, independent surveys and working relationships have revealed that women are better leaders than men. In fact, women are exceptional thinkers, strategists and diplomats require for any business or company to thrive.

Leadership is not all about seeing down on someone and making people work like slaves. It is all about creating more leaders and women have done a much better job here than men. Today, big computer companies and some listed in the Fortune 500 hire women at some of the most critical positions. Women take long term and subtle decisions. It is also a wonderful experience to be led by a woman for she has a rational way of thinking and can help bring out the best in every member of the team.

Buying Greenhouses Online or in Garden Centres


In todays modern world it seems that if you are looking for a greenhouse or a playhouse, the easiest way to purchase is online, but perhaps you are missing out on seeing them in the flesh?

Where you find greenhouses for sale there will often be other buildings for sale such as sheds and playhouses.  Playhouses are ideal if you have children.  They will keep themselves amused for hours and hours in the garden.

There are lots of different ones to choose from.  Some have an upper level with stairs they can climb up and down with windows and doors.  These look attractive in the garden especially if you plant some flowers around them.

They are also ideal for tidying up all the kids outside toys which can be stored in the playhouse to keep them safe and clean.

The expansion of the internet jungle


What makes the biggest difference in XXI century is the access to the information.  Life never was so easy. I still remember heavy encyclopaedias that we were buying in 1980s as the only one source of basic information. It was impossible to follow every new edition so it was obvious that very often information was not accurate.  I think during this decade people have changed the way they are actually using it. At begin Internet was for me a source of information and the way to communicate with people around the world.  Right now the information is not limited to news about what is happening on the world. The information that they are looking now is mostly based on personal experience of others.

It becomes very popular to shop by internet and people tend to spend more money for online shopping every day.  But both internet shopping fans and sceptics are searching for information and opinions what to buy, where to buy and for how much to buy.  More popular are becoming websites where consumers are sharing their experience about each product’s pros and cons. In many cases this behaviour will prevent money loss and disappointment.  Experience based reviews will allow to select the most desirable product with all features that customers are looking for.  We can say that internet creates unlimited market where people can buy and sell almost anything.  There are not price limits on products that we can find online.  You can buy and sell gold, cars or even houses.  Access to information also makes internet environment safer and more consumers friendly. But on another hand we should think about the content of information we are sharing.  Nowadays the biggest concern is protection of personal data. What is happening with all names, addresses telephone numbers and bank transfer details and if they are not sold to create more profit?

My Granny And The Internet


A month or so ago, my granny asked me to ‘teach’ her how to use the internet.  She is a woman of 84 but she is extremely active and likes to stay up to speed with things.  A couple of years ago she asked me to show her how to use a computer as she wanted to write some short stories.  That was pretty difficult but she finally got to grips with using MS Word and after that we just couldn’t get her off the computer.  She often asked me about ‘that internet thing’ but I decided to try and keep it simple.  That was all well and good until one of her friends from her local knitting club told her she could get some free knitting patterns and play bridge online! That definitely sparked her interest as they are her two favourite pastimes.

I showed her the basics of using a web browser and using google to find what she was looking for.  I also told her to be really careful about being scammed and told her under no circumstances to give any personal details away without me ‘vetting’ it first for her.  I set her up a new email address, bookmarked some sites I thought she might be interested in and let her get on with it.  Two days later I gave her a ring to see how she was getting on and she was absolutely loving it! She had been on her computer every spare moment she had and was really enjoying looking all sorts of things up.  She even told me it was mind blowing! Then she told me she wanted to buy her cat a cheap cat litter cabinet so I made arrangements to visit her the following weekend although I wasn’t entirely sure what this particular item was.  When I went round she showed me this product and told me she wanted to purchase it as the local pet shop didn’t have the one she wanted after she had seen a particular model online at http://www.pouncingcat.com/.  I showed her how to find the cheapest prices and also how to make sure the shop was genuine and safe to use.  She was really chuffed but I had to tell her not to make any more purchases unless I was with her so I could show her a few more times to make sure she wasn’t scammed.

Well, we went through the process a few more times now every time I ring her to see if she is okay she tells me she has bought even more stuff online!  I’m really please she has taken to it so well and even more pleased she hasn’t got ripped off.  She spends so much time online now looking for bargains that I think she will be showing me a thing or two pretty soon!

Women in Information Technology


Information technology or IT is one of the fastest growing sectors in the American economy. The United States Department of Labor estimates that by 2018 there will be 1.4 million new computer-related jobs that will need filling. IT job opportunities are growing at a faster rate than any other  type of job. And yet women are leaving the IT field at a staggering rate. This has lead to such organizations as National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) to further examine this trend and to find ways of removing the barriers that stop women enjoying successful careers in IT.

Despite the growing number of vacancies in the IT world there has been a steady decline in the number of women enrolling for computer courses at university.  In 2008 women held 57% of the jobs in all professional work areas except for IT where the number was only 25% – down from 36% in 1991.

Clearly women are missing out on a big opportunity to boost their incomes and to take their fair share of jobs in the IT related industries. Not only will women miss out in the future but so will America. It is believed by many analysts that there won’t be enough credible candidates to fill all the IT jobs predicted by 2018.

This means more IT jobs will be outsourced in the future. America has always been keen to keep business and employment opportunities in the States but the modern trend of cutting costs by outsourcing will inevitably lead to many well paid IT jobs being outsourced to foreign countries. It is likely that as internet connections in Manila in the Philippines, Bombay in India, Thongsala in Koh Phangan, as well as African cities and Southern American cities continue to get faster so America will bleed jobs to the world. This is both good news and bad news. America will eventually lose its supremacy in the IT field despite having Google and Silicon Valley, but perhaps women from other countries will take up the opportunities that clearly American women are reluctant to grasp.

4 Factors for a Successful Sales Call


If your work happens to be in the sales, then, this job is quite challenging especially if you are now in great turmoil on how to meet your sales quota for the month. You would even do the most extraordinary marketing strategy just to move heaven and earth in order to make that sale. In any profession, either you are a newbie in web designing who is just starting to learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop free download tutorials or a sales agent honing his/her skills through a call training course, you have to put your heart and mind in achieving your goal to become an efficient worker.

If you are just a newbie in the sales industry, here are 4 factors that could either make or break your sales record from your prospective buyers to a more remarkable sales report.

  • Proper timing

There is always an appropriate time to make a sales call to any prospective client. People belonging to the sales team are always briefed of what would be the best call time of the day. Making a sales call in the latter part of the evening is very unprofessional and is viewed as a waste of time to most sales people because this is the time when most people are already in bed, ready for their well-rested sleep and it isn’t ideal to disturb them in the middle of the night.

  • Determine your reason for the call

Before you make that sales call to your prospective buyer, prepare the outline of what you have to say, the positive feedback of other satisfied clients who availed your product or service and lastly be sure to tap the right market. For sure, you don’t want to receive a cold answer “No” if you made a sales call to a wrong client not needing your product or service.

  • Direct motivation

It takes a fully-motivated sales agent to convince even the hard to please target consumer. Time is very important to any sales person and it is for this reason that adequate training in marketing and sales handling are given to them before they do their main task of making a sales call to their potential buyers. In order for them to convince any client, he/she as a sales agent should fully believe in the product/service that is being offered, for their convincing power to become genuine.

  • Preparedness

Enough sales training and preparation is given to most sales people to ensure that when they do accept the responsibility of the work, they are fully equipped with enough knowledge and selling tactics for them to close a deal and have a sale at the end of each sales call.

Be driven to succeed on whatever career you hold. Carry on.

A Girl Needs Her Privacy


Most of us kind of think that what we use the internet is strictly private between us and the keyboard.  However I’m afraid this is simply not the case – unfortunately there are many others who are interested in what we do online for a variety of reasons.    Have you ever wondered how adverts seem to follow you around the internet – stalking you from your online news sites across to Facebook and Linkedin.

Express an interest in a product and your likely to have adverts for that product stalking you across the internet.  For instance I recently clicked on an advert for a particular brand of cosmetics – eye shadow if you’re interested.  Now every other site I visit seems to have little adverts for that product displayed on their website.  Coincidence or am I being stalked by an electronic cosmetics salesman.

Of course the answer is that my behavior online (and yours) is being monitored consistently, the data is tracked and stored on our computers and the web servers we visit.  Meanwhile a new breed of ‘data companies’ are storing all this data for primarily commercial reasons and building up a digital you profile for sale to the highest bidder.

Some may not care about this, we are after all a land of entrepreneurs and our society is built on commerce.  But have you ever thought that and entire list of every web site you have visited over the last two years is actually stored and available.  That’s absolutely every web site – logged and recorded – stored in the logs of your ISP.   That’s an awful lot of data and an awful lot of privacy issues.   If there’s any aspect of your life you’d like to keep private then I suggest you don’t visit related web sites – what do you mean to late??

There are ways of keeping more of your data private, there are a whole raft of websites which will show you you the latestanonymous surfing news and products – like this http://thenewproxies.com/.  It’s not just a male, geeky products – there is a real issue with how the internet is developing and how much data is being gathered and stored about each and every one of us!

The Pros and Cons of Buying Indoor Soccer Shoes Online


Long before US men got more seriously into the game with the launch of Major League Soccer (the MLS) and an improved international team the women of the US were displaying a strong passion and skill for the sport. In fact the US Womens Soccer team is one of the best in the world. therefore it is not surprising that a great many women across the country play soccer, and play it both indoors and out.

One of the keys to getting a great performance for an indoor soccer player is finding (and then wearing) the right indoor soccer shoes. and instead of spending hours in the mall trying to find the right pair many women are heading online to buy their indoor soccer shoes instead.

One of the most popular destinations for these online purchases is Lady Footlocker, the womens only division of the popular sporting goods outlet. Zappos also carry a decent selection of indoor soccer shoes and their very generous returns policy means that if you do make a sizing mistake exchanging your new indoor soccer shoes will not be too difficult.

Sizing is one of the reasons that some women prefer to buy their indoor soccer shoes off rather than online though. A pair of heels that are a little too tight can usually be tolerated (especially if they are really fabulous ones) but an ill fighting pair of indoor soccer shoes can be a nightmare.

Some sites do offer sizing help though and also feature reviews from previous customers who asked to describe the fit and how well it corresponded to a certain size number. That means that if five people said that a size 8 pair of indoor soccer shoes ran too big you at least know that you may need a size smaller and can adjust your shopping based on that information.

Pizza Hut Trivia


Looking out for Pizza Hut coupons is a great way to save money on a meal that almost everyone in the family can enjoy. The next time you head there though you might want to keep these amazing Pizza Hut trivia facts in mind:

  •  The very first Pizza Hut opened in Kansas in 1958 by two brothers using $600 they borrowed from their mother.
  • In 2011 there were almost 6,000 Pizza Hut restaurants in the USA. In addition there are another 4,000 spread out across one hundred other countries.
  • Pizza Hut in Japan serves one of the most indulgent (and calorie laden) fast food dishes in the world. Called the Double Roll it is essentially a cheese pizza but it has bacon wrapped sausages all along the crust, and mini hamburger patties on top of mushrooms, soy beans, corn, paprika, garlic chips, green peppers, and pepperoni. As for cheese, it has mozzarella, cheddar and parmigiana. and all of this adds up to a huge 646 calories per slice.

Best Refrigerator Technologies For Your Luddite Grandmother


While these days most women are just as comfortable with computers as man, there remains a subset of the female population – particularly older women – who did not grow up with computers.   Sometimes these women find themselves at a disadvantage when dealing with certain modern technologies.

If there is a woman in your life that absolutely refuses to use a computer or smart phone, and you’d like to help her gain familiarity with modern technologies, there is an innocent way to aid her.  Today some of the best refrigerators on the market come with a lot of built-in technology.

Certain fridge freezers – such as the Samsung FR4289 – basically come with a small computer and screen within the freeze door.  While not cheap, these appliances are a great way to help the technology shy start to realize some of the benefits today’s innovations have to offer.

Even the most conservative grandmother will find it handy to have an up to date weather report on their refrigerators ‘screen’.  Once you show them that you can display recipes there from the internet, even a true Luddite will start to see the opportunities.

By providing technophobes with a useful exposure to technology in a familiar setting, you can help them overcome their fear of the unknown.  Once Aunt Gertie has started taking advantage of a computer in the kitchen, don’t be surprised to see her starting to embrace email and the like.

Yes, she will still be living in the 1990s.  But that is a big step up from the 1970s!  You can train her in the joys of Facebook and Twitter a little later on – take it one step at a time to avoid overwhelming her.

With easily accessible user friendly computing available even in refrigerators today, there is no reason for anyone to not experience the benefits computers have to offer.

The Future Of Computers Is Bright For Women


When it comes to using a computer whether it be for casual use or as a means to earn a living there is no reason women shouldn’t be treated as equals to men. In the day and age of mobile computer technology everybody has the possibility to own and make use of computers in everyday life and this is exactly what is happening more and more. Mobile technology such as tablet pc’s and android phones will make it possible for women to do even more with their day whether it be organizing nights out, finding holidays, shopping for food or for smokers out there, selecting the right electronic cigarette.

The actual discussion of women and computers is one that is a non starter nowadays, we are just as capable as anybody else and no we don’t just think mobile Internet is only good for updating the Facebook status (although I love being able to add pictures on nights out instantly) or my Twitter account, we also see the possibilities that this technology can bring.

Marketing confidence for women


Most people turn to affiliate marketing as an alternative way to earn money and work from home. It refers to hiring an seo agency and getting a commission out of every sale or successful transaction. What are the secrets to being successful in this business? Is it true that one can earn through this method or is it just a waste of time?

All over the world, more people are showing proof that they are able to make a living through promoting products and services from another company. What they do in order to become successful is not a secret at all. It is just sometimes hidden in plain sight and we tend to overlook it and focus on other not-so-important aspects of doing the business.

Although the income potential is big, we would be ready to start with something small. Most people make a mistake by concentrating on hitting the numbers instead of quality. Thus, they use mediocre promotional materials with no conversion value at all. What happens is that they focus on attracting a lot of visitors, but are not successful in convincing those visitors to buy what they are selling.

An excellent sales pitch, matched by a personal approach towards promoting an internet marketing company can sometimes spell the difference. After making a few sales through a well-thought of sales page, it can now be easy to take the second step and attract more customers to visit your page. By focusing on quality before quantity, commissions are most likely to come in.

Internet Usage: Women vs Men


Here is some interesting information of how women & men use the Internet that I’ve got from an e-mail back and forth with Chicago SEO Services.

  • Women under 30 actually use the Internet more than men under 30, however, according to Chicago SEO Services, the two groups use the Internet very differently. For instance women are really active on their e-mail accounts, they do more personal e-mailing, sharing of interesting content with friends and loved ones, a wide range of topics of personal interest is being shared by the women via e-mail. In contrast men mostly tend to use their e-mail for organizational and work purposes.
  • The usage of the Internet by men over 30 significantly outweighs the usage of Internet by women over 30. However, the percentage of women using the Internet is growing at a significant pace and is likely to outgrow the number of men using the Internet within the next few years. The average time spent on the Internet by a woman is already greater than the average time spent on the Internet by a man.
  • While women are just as likely to shop online and purchase actual goods as men, they aren’t as likely to pay for digital items, pay bills or participate in buying stocks online or similar activities.
  • As for searching for information online women are generally interested in more narrow range of topics than men. Men use the search engines in savvier manner, run more aggressive queries, run more narrowing queries to find the specific information they need, while women are more likely to go for more generic queries.
  • Women are more likely to participate in online support groups, go more in-depth by participating in e-mail discussions on the subject, they’re more likely to share the information they find useful or interesting over e-mail or on social media platforms.
  • Information on health, recipes, arts and crafts, babies and children are some of the topics that generate more interest from women than men.
  • Men are more likely to download music, pay for music and videos, listen to online radios and watch online TV shows.

Don’t Trust All Financial Advice On The Internet


The internet is a great resource for quality information literally at everyone’s fingertips.  The problem is that not all of this information is accurate or true and must be taken with a grain of salt, especially when you are talking about financial matters.  One such matter than is very clouded by information on the internet is the debt relief industry.  So many companies fill the internet with junk for the sole purpose of getting more customers regardless of whether they are actually able to help these folks or not.  Most people nowadays are aware of the dangers of the internet but under no circumstance should you offer up personal financial info unless you know you are dealing with a safe and trusted organization.

Opportunites Abound For Women In Online Business


In this day and age, there is lots of evidence that women are equal to men in most any work place. They have made strides in every direction and as more and more enter the work force, everything is evening out between the sexes.

The Internet and computers are one place that this is especially so because men have absolutely no advantage when it comes to online businesses. In the online world, who you are can be hidden if you want and so no one would know if you are a man or a woman anyway. Additionally, social media is something that has exploded over the last couple of years and women have the upper hand in that.

Today’s young women go to college and fully expect to get a job. They aren’t paying those big bucks to learn how to be a homemaker. Jobs for college students can be found in all areas but the new one is the online world. There are lots of online jobs you can get, either part time or full time, that are great for college students who have bills to pay. Women are equally qualified for all these jobs and they are going after them too.

Companies are hiring for all sorts of Internet related jobs as they realize that a strong online presence is needed to compete in today’s business world. Women have every bit as much opportunity as men to get those jobs and it is great for those that are driven to get them. There are few excuses for women in the online world: just go out see what is available and then go after it!

A Word In Defense Of Women And Computers


Firstly, I don’t want to start an argument but the first electronic computer was not the ENIAC. The first computer was built at Bletchley Park in the UK during World War II and was used to crack the German’s secret codes. Its existence was kept secret long after the end of the war, thereby allowing others to claim first place, although for some strange reason the technology was shared with the Americans.

Anyway, this site is about computer confidence for women. As a woman in my sixties who has built and runs several websites – take a look at my site selling personalised christening gifts – I find it a little odd and a trifle offensive that someone seems to think there is a need for such a site as this. I don’t want to come across as a grumpy old woman, but why does anyone think women as a breed are wary of using computers? Figures show that the majority of ‘silver surfers’ are women. Alright, women do most of the shopping and the internet is increasingly being used to shop, but one doesn’t have to be a geek to use a computer. It would take a crowbar to separate the modern generation (both sexes) from their computers, so I assume the suggested computer phobia affects the older generation; but statistics suggest women as users are well represented. I couldn’t sell my personalised christening gifts without my website, and most of the customers buying the christening gifts are women. Maybe this site should be aimed at men?

Computers and Wine


I’m not sure that any industry has been helped more by the advent of computers, bloggers and the internet as has wine, or at least wine consumers.

Not many people outside of a wine of the month club owner know that most wine is actually purchased by women and a higher and higher percentage of them are spending time online either reading blogs, or checking prices before making purchases.

Women are notorious for spending more time making informed decisions then men (when is the last time your husband used, or cut a coupon) so the internet and the bevy of information is a perfect combination, especially for a topic such as wine which needs a lot of information because of a huge number of wineries and the fact that each vintage varies dramatically from prior offerings.

Now days, more and more beauty industry growth is being powered by the fields of science and technology, using broader innovations to create and promote new beauty products.

Boosting Your Company Online


The old adage ‘foot on the ladder’ has become an apt phrase to tout nowadays for companies looking to make a presence online. It can be tough to climb that ladder when you don’t know how potential customers will find your site and which way your should be advertising your company.

If you’re running in to these kinds of problems and can’t figure out why no one is searching for your company, you should get advice from an SEO company. SEO means Search Engine Optimisation and it is the process of getting a website to acheive a high placement on a search engine.

Potential customers will never search simply for your company name. They’ll search based on what it is you provide. Your market might be very competitive with hundreds of companies all competing to be noticed for the same search terms.

SEOs specialise in finding out whether the terms associated with your company (known as keywords) work to get your site noticed. It might be the case that a similar search term mightn’t be used at all by your competitors and you can grab on to that instead to boost your online presence.

One very important thing SEO companies do is find out whether your site is seen as a good or bad thing by search engines. Many sites become popular and rank well because other sites link to them. It gives a certain authority in most cases, but a lot of bad sites can also link to you.

When this happens, these links are labelled as toxic and are seen by a search engine as a big no-no. An SEO company can carry out very detailed searches to figure out which sites linking to you are bad and carry out a ‘detox’ on your site.

They’ll try and sever those links and show search engines that your site is really fine and no harm. It’s really important for a company of any size to consider getting help from an SEO. They’ll bolster your company’s image online and make sure you’ll get the highest potential number of clients possible.

Woman Rule the Future


We don’t think that women alone will rule the future. We think that women with certain leadership skills and traits, and men, who also possess them, stand a greater chance of success in an ever-more interconnected global economy. This is because the only way to succeed when everyone knows your business is to act in an empathetic, patient, humane and scrupulously ethical way.

Given that people the world over believe these qualities are female in a traditional sense, we use like women as a shorthand for what can be universal traits. Often I hear mean telling me that women and technology just don’t mix. They tell me how women are technologically inferior. In some cases this may be true: some women who were not raised around computers may not know all too much about them.

Women also have the special feeling for pets.For the lovely cats, they will do anything to make it comfortable. Even if they need to buy a fancy automatic feeder for cats, they will do it to spoil them. The same however goes for men who were not raised around computers: they won’t know their ways around computers as well. Women who are exposed to technology at the same time, it is actually noticeable that women will learn and grasp the technology much quicker than the men will.

Unfortunately, the society which we live in is like this today, women and technology together is not always seems as a good thing; in reality, this is must be changed to benefit everyone. Women are, generally speaking, peacemakers and multitask, with strengths in all of the areas they’ll need to face the most important challenges the future is likely to hold. Challenges like the environment, globalization and providing preventive and ongoing health care and food for an expanding global population. During the global changing of the world simultaneously the woman’s rule is really indeed to develop.

Apps for Women


Women unfortunately lead the statistics by a massive amount when it comes to being victims of sexually motivated crimes. This is definitely not a coveted position to be in, but with the help of technology, you could maximise your safety. Young women are especially at risk, however they are also the most likely to be up to date with their technological devices.

The arrival of apps for smartphones heralded a new type of interaction with technology, with every possible momentary technological need being able to be met. Some smart programmers have utilised this technology in some of the best possible ways to make safety apps for women’s personal well-being. 

Circle of Six is a free app that allows you to contact people with just two simple taps if you feel threatened. It will send out pre-determined texts to contacts that also include your exact location. It also has pre-programmed national hotline numbers too. It is aimed at sexual abuse prevention, and three of its four designers are women.

Another notable app is iFollow. If you are in danger and the potential victim of a serious crime, all you have to do is shake the phone three times to activate it. This will then make a call to a chosen contact, then an SMS if that fails to be answered.

The YMCA Safety Alert app is perhaps the most inclusive, as it includes different elements. Like the iFollow app, you only have to shake it to activate it, or alternatively, you can tap its alert button. This will cause the app to emit a loud scream from your phone, as well as send an email to your selected contacts detailing your exact location.

Most personal safety apps are free, and when it’s a question of your safety and well being, there is no point delaying in downloading one.

Why the Women Change Their Mood Often.


 

Sometimes I feel that my life is too flat. Everything I do, I am just getting bored. The rain falls I am bored the sun shines brightly I am bored. I think I got the highest point of my boring. But sometimes I feel that my life is poured with a heavy dozen of happiness atmosphere. I could explain more before when my boy asked me why he can’t understand me at all sometimes when my mood turn so fast at glance. Then I know it called by mood swings, it can make life for women extremely hard to live. The sudden shifts in temperament often have no explanation.

A woman may be perfectly happy before feeling inexplicably sad, or may be happy before feeling suddenly angry. Whatever the reasons for mood swings, they can leave women struggling to cope with life. Oh, I was wondering that I have a good guy like him who always has big understanding to face me, and often gives me a surprise present like automatic cat feeder for my lovely cat Lucy; he’d like to get together and do something, like catch a movie or take a walk down by the lake.

Can I Make A Real Living Online ?


The electronic revolution has given many folks like me a way to transform many parts of our lives. Simply put the electronic age has introduced many, many more alternatives ways of working for each and every one of us. There are obviously the practical benefits of the web – - work from home, e-mails and remote management, where we can teleconference over the web. The costs saved can be fairly considerable on both sides, traveling costs are clearly reduced but from the employers standpoint the demand for expensive office space is reduced too.

Remote working concepts and your home workplace are nothing unusual anymore and the advantages have been embraced by both sides. The web is probably the greatest communication network ever seen, but it’s also the market. All throughout the world millions of people make their living entirely on-line. The great benefit is that employment chances are exposed to individuals who formerly were unable to work or support themselves correctly.

Parents can now care for their children whilst running a successful internet based company. What exactly is required to take your position in this new digital world? Well in fact the chances are almost endless you can adapt any interests or skills into a possible source of income. Should you enjoy writing – setting up an effective site in even the most obscure area can become quite lucrative in the international context of the web. Remember just because it’s computers and the internet doesn’t mean you have to be a coder although of course  that is another opportunity too. There are several tools you’ll need of course, a pc and an internet connection are fairly crucial.

Lots of people begin their on-line careers in their free time, it is definitely less insecure than quitting your day job. However it is important to create a serious effort, the majority who try and create some on-line enterprise and quit after several weeks is staggering.  The days of creating a full time income in a few weeks is long gone.  Ideally you’ll need at least a year or so to make progress although some do succeed more quickly it has to  be said.

The investment needed is relatively small though, web hosting is easily affordable and creating content, SEO and promotion can all be done by yourself although it is time consuming.  A few tools will make life easier, an SEO tool like Market Samurai is a worthwhile investment plus a proxy program for changing your IP address. This has a myriad of uses for research, promotion and you can even use it to watch online TV stations in other countries – try this one.  But don’t spend thousands on either promotion or tools at the beginning – your best investment is your time.  Once you start seeing a return or can see that a market exists then is the time to invest and take some risks.

Women’s Rule in Gender


Gender equality is, first and foremost, a human right. The importance of gender equality is underscored by its inclusion as one of the eight Millennium Development Goals. Gender equality is acknowledged as being a key to achieving the other seven goals. Yet discrimination against women and girls – including gender-based violence, economic discrimination, reproductive health inequities, and harmful traditional practices – remains the most pervasive and persistent form of inequality.

The human society is a component of males and females-men and women. Both the species are complementary to each other; one cannot survive oneself without the other. Nevertheless, we have learned to live with this restriction of our freedom, since we recognize the value of a society in which racial and religious distinctions play no public role. Women empowerment generally has three components.

Firstly, women’s senses of self-worth, secondly, their rights to have a power of control their own lives, both within and outside home, lastly, their ability to influence the direction of social change to create a just social and economic order nationally, internationally and universally. There are some choices when woman want to create their social and economic order, for example build a handbag business as wholesaler, this will give better opportunities to reach gender equality. If she really wants to make it she needs an understanding about handbag itself. In Indonesia for example. Handbag that made from fabric is popular now days.

Canvas fabric is originally used as shopping bag or grocery, but now it is developed as part of woman fashion also. The fabric is the best quality so it won’t broke easily. In Indonesian language, handbag commonly known as tas wanita. Even though hand means tangan and bag means tas. The Indonesia women more recognize the phrase tas wanita or tas cantik to mention handbag. Hopefully this little information can help the new wholesaler.

The Importance Of The Internet To A Stay At Home Mom


My kids are my job.  In my house, I am the last person to bed every night, and the first person up every morning.  I have to stay up until my baby goes to sleep, at which point I can finally find the time to fold clothes and make lunches for the next day.  I get up before the kids do in the morning so I can have a cup of coffee and begin making breakfast.  

Somewhere in between all of it, I have to find the time to meet with other people.  Unfortunately, my schedule doesn’t always dictate being able to meet up with other grown-ups in my area, and I often find that I will go days without having another adult conversation.  This is where the internet comes in.  As a busy stay at home mom, the internet is essential to my sanity and my survival.  Without it, I wouldn’t be able to connect with friends, family, and the community I live in.  Life would simply be passing me by.  

I also find that the internet is essential for me to be able to stick with a workout program.  Through different websites, not only can I maintain my diet and my weight, but I can find out what the best workout programs are for me without ever having to step foot into a gym (because let’s face it, who has time?).  Websites like http://www.workoutequipmentreviews.net/insanity-workout-review/ give me all the information I need about deciding which workouts will work best for me and my busy schedule.  They have all been tested by regular people, not fitness fanatics, to insure they not only work, but are feasible for the regular person to do.  Without the internet in my house, I would not be able to get through most of my day.  I am not sure how women did it a few decades ago.  I know it has changed my life!

Blog Wars


I have recently started a new blog after my boyfriend suggested it. I was sick of having to buy Heat magazine and all those other ones that are exactly the same so I decided I would start a blog and research online for celeb gossip so people could just look at that rather than waste their money on all those magazine.

I have been doing well so far and it is quite enjoyable being able to write about all these amazing different kinds of things, click here for a peek at my blog. Pretty soon after I started I found a simlar blog and we have been competing ever since, it’s a good friendly rivalry though and we have emailed each other. We even share stories that we think the other one might like.

I never used to think I would give in to the move over to online magazines and such and thought that newspapers and magazines were the better option. Now with mobile phones and tablets being more popular than ever it looks as though the change over is gradually taking place.

I still buy the occasional magazine but on the whole I get most of my infoonline.

How the Online Music Landscape has Changed


Today, people often forget that they can buy songs and albums of their favorite artists online as easily as they can find web design pricing information. But that wasn’t always the case before and previously, it seemed as if record companies and the Internet were simply incompatible.

Illegal Music Downloads

Before the mp3 file format was invented, computer users could not share music files online as wav files were just too large. But everything changed with mp3s, and it became possible to squeeze a 5 minute song into a 5 MB size file.  The development of mp3s also coincided with the release of file sharing programs like Napster.

However, this led to all sorts of legal problems as users would illegally upload and share pictures, software, and of course music, costing artists and record companies millions of dollars in losses. Record companies were forced to take legal action, and while many file sharing applications were shut down, there seemed no way for companies to make their music available for download online.

The Rise of iTunes

But the scenario changed when Steve Jobs managed to convince record companies to make their music available to iTunes, Apple’s music store / library. Jobs believed that people would be willing to pay as long as the product was high quality and sold at a reasonable cost. And because Apple’s market shares at the time was small, record companies felt that they had little to lose.  iTunes’ initial target was to sell 800,000 songs on the first year, but they ended up selling more than a million songs in the first couple of weeks.

The industry has not looked back since then and now people can buy and download the latest songs with a click of a mouse.

If you want to set up a website where people can download songs, you are in luck. With low web design pricing, you can set up a website with minimal investments. The good news is, people are fond of downloading music online so your website should be an easy hit. Check web design pricing today and get started with your site.

Technology Tips – Travelling Abroad


Have you ever been travelling on business and pleasure and wanted to catch up with the latest home news on the internet?  Well if you have you may have encountered a technology called geotargeting.  It’s basically a system where a web site checks your IP address when you log on and decides what you can or can’t see.  For example any visitors to the BBC Iplayer web site who are based outside the UK will receive a polite notice saying they can’t use the application.  This of course includes UK people who just happen to travelling abroad or stuck in an airport somewhere.  There is no distinction on who you are, just where your computer or laptop is connecting through.

It’s not just the BBC, this is common practice across the internet.  Ever seen a YouTube video where it says sorry – video not available in your country, well it’s the same thing when the video was uploaded the uploader can decide which country it is available in.  Often nobody bothers but if it’s a film or copyrighted piece then it will usually be restricted to a specific location.  The same goes for wonderful sites like Hulu and Pandora (only available in the US) or for French speakers travelling who can’t visit M6 Replay.  For anyone who travels a lot it can get really annoying as you will often get blocked from your favorite sites.

So is there anything you can do about it?  Well of course this is the internet so there’s always a loophole or workaround to be found ! The secret here is to mask your true location by using something called a proxy or VPN server.  All you have to do is connect through one of these and the IP address that will be visible will be that of the server.  So if you’re sitting in CDG airport in Paris and wanted to watch the BBC News you would connect to a UK proxy.  This would make you appear to be connecting from the UK and let you watch what ever you like – silly huh!  There are loads of services around that provide this, so it’s best to have a look around – make sure you get one which has lots of different countries available.

Women Coders


women programmers havent come very farSo I think we all know what “technology” means here at the beginning of the 21st century.  Computers,  Programming.  Etc Etc.

The question is how we can get more women into coding jobs, if that’s where we think tech is going (and we do, let alone every single other person alive today).

We need high schools to help kids of all ages and ethnicities learn to code by having computer labs which do more than help kids learn other subjects.  Computers shouldn’t be used in lieu of a library, coding comes with its own specific set of real skills that help kids a ton in other areas.

Tech Savvy Woman at High Risk for Hypertension


A high blood pressure chart for women is designed to let doctors and nurses know if a patient is suffering from high blood pressure. If your blood pressure is not at a healthy level, it will be requested that you either make lifestyle changes or that you be placed on medications to help improve the high blood pressure scores.

The blood pressure readings will fall into one of four categories. You will either have Normal pressure or high blood pressure. There are 2 categories in between. The level of your pressure will determine which type of treatment is right for you. If you suffer from pre hypertension, then you most likely could avoid medications by simply stopping a few of your bad habits. Perhaps, you should consider the stopping of caffeine and fatty foods. You will also want to limit the amount of protein you take daily. Also bear in mind that if you smoke, you should stop.

The first thing that you need to know is that you will need to make sure that you understand how blood pressure works. The systolic which is the top number is going to need to be below 120. This number will tell the doctor how much pressure is being applied to the muscle of the heart as it beats.

The diastolic number of your blood pressure should be below 80 and will tell you about the pressure on the heart when the heart muscle is relaxed. Your numbers for your blood pressure should be between 80 and 120 and the bottom number should be below 80. If your numbers are below this, your pressures are normal. However this should be discussed with your primary care doctor.

Looking For A Break


I have found that researching online first before going away anywhere on a trip can be useful as you can look at the kind of places that appeal to you most and then weigh up the pros and cons before deciding.

I like to visit places where I can get to see the best of what a country has to offer and one thing that I never really did was explore the country that I live in. Scotland is an amazing country and some of the scenary has to be seen to be believed so I decided to look about online and find out the best places to visit.

I saw a few places but one that jumped out at me was Loch Lomond after I saw a site with some great pics, click here, and decided to go for it. What an incredible place it is and because I had been researching online I managed to save some things on my Ipad so I could find all the great things that I wanted to see and do.

By using these technologies we can make our holidays better experiences and know what options are available to us in places that we might not have known about if we just turned up without any previous knowledge of the place. Some sites are set up specifically to let you know about attractions and areas that will be of interest, taking advantage of these makes sure you don’t end up finding out about something when you are back home and regret not seeing it.

Making Religious Chats with Kids Easier on Moms


Whether you are a religious family or not your child will most likely ask religious questions at some point in your life. This questions will range from is there life after death or is there a God? This article is to help give some guidance on how to advise your child and provide a great experience for them to learn. The goal of this blog post is to be more about the topic of religious discussions versus what belief you should follow. So you can trust that this post will be more unbiased and not affiliated with any denomination.

The most common question a child will ask is whether “there is a God”. This is a tricky question because you may or may not believe in a God yourself. However, regardless of your beliefs it is important you give your child your thoughts and a way to decide for themselves whether they believe or not. If you do believe in a God you can express your beliefs but feel free to share other religions beliefs as well. You want your teenager to know all the ideas so they can make an informed decision. If you don’t believe in a God I would start with covering a general overview of some religious beliefs like Christianity, Judaism, and Buddhism. There are other religions that will provide some great ideology.

The next most common question is usually what happens after death? Many times a child/teenager will lose a relative or pet that causes grief. They often wonder what happens to that person when they pass on. If you want to share the most common Christian belief you could tell them that they have gone to a better place where they will be surrounded by family. It is also a popular belief that family members also “watch down” on other family members after their passing. This idea can help a child overcome extreme grief and understand that family will always stay together.

I hope that these ideas will help guide you when talking to your kids/teenagers about tough religious questions. If you ever have any additional questions please check out the major religious beliefs on Wikipedia.

Wine, Women and Culture


a good wine gift basketI was shopping for a hard core feminist friend the other day and she had something interesting to tell me, she told me that women winemakers were few and far between.

Interesting right?

I mean, we all know that women drink a ton of wine-while men don’t….we know men drink more beer than wine.  So why aren’t there more women winemakers?

Oh, before I forget, I ended up buying her a wine gift basket made by an outstanding winemaker who happens to be both a woman and happens to be based pretty close to her in Berkeley!

Anyway. wine is just another place where women and tech need to work together better!

Come on Girls Get Coding


It’s one of the big mysteries of the industry, why are there so few women working in IT and technology?  This month sees a flurry of new initiative designed to attract more women to the industry.   November the 21st sees the launch of one of the more significant ones- Entrpreneur First’s Code First for Girls.  This seeks to targert female graduates and teach them some technical skills and basic coding.

There are lots of others though, Computer Clubs for Girls, seeks to teach young girls the basics in IT and compuetr programming.  The idea is to explain the very basic fundamentals – the logic that lies behind all good code, the different languages and even how to create simple web applications.

These intitiatives go further though, even assigning a female mentor from the IT industry to provide some support and guidance to the girls on the courses.  Whether efforts like these will help improve female participation in the industry it is unknown.  It is surprising that IT appeals to so very few females.

There are lots of theories about the gender bias but none seem that convincing.  In such situations, sexism is normally blamed but there is very little evidence of this in the high tech industries.  Setting up courses to demonstrate how technology works and some practical applications hopefully will inspire some of the participants.

The truth is technology is slowly seeping into all areas of our lives so women are missing a massive opportunity. You can literally use technology everyday – especially if you use the internet.  Take for example the use of VPNs and proxy servers, these sound the realm of the geeky technical guy but they are in fact very useful.  Not only can they be used to protect your privacy and security online they will also can be used to bypass lots of blocks and filters.  For instance this page shows you how to access BBC Iplayer abroad, simply by utlisiing a proxy server and some basic networking knowledge you can watch BBC TV shows from anywhere in the world.

The Importance Of The Internet To A Stay At Home Mom


My kids are my job.  In my house, I am the last person to bed every night, and the first person up every morning.  I have to stay up until my baby goes to sleep, at which point I can finally find the time to fold clothes and make lunches for the next day.  I get up before the kids do in the morning so I can have a cup of coffee and begin making breakfast.  

Somewhere in between all of it, I have to find the time to meet with other people.  Unfortunately, my schedule doesn’t always dictate being able to meet up with other grown-ups in my area, and I often find that I will go days without having another adult conversation.  This is where the internet comes in.  As a busy stay at home mom, the internet is essential to my sanity and my survival.  Without it, I wouldn’t be able to connect with friends, family, and the community I live in.  Life would simply be passing me by.  

I also find that the internet is essential for me to be able to stick with a workout program.  Through different websites, not only can I maintain my diet and my weight, but I can find out what the best workout programs are for me without ever having to step foot into a gym (because let’s face it, who has time?).  Websites like http://www.workoutequipmentreviews.net/insanity-workout-review/ give me all the information I need about deciding which workouts will work best for me and my busy schedule.  They have all been tested by regular people, not fitness fanatics, to insure they not only work, but are feasible for the regular person to do.  Without the internet in my house, I would not be able to get through most of my day.  I am not sure how women did it a few decades ago.  I know it has changed my life!

Women are blogging now more than ever before


There was after an occasion when women were considerably marginalized in a very community that is intensely slanted toward mens’ wants and concerns. Whilst cases involving discrimination towards women continue to be fairly prevalent, there has been several progress made in the mission to have women far more greatly linked to a variety of facets in the community. This is particularly visible all over the net, the place that the democratization of the collective internet experience provides women a more prominent function compared to what they already have appreciated otherwise.

Running a blog is certainly one distinct region where women are ultimately capable to stay competition with the guys. You’ll find thousands associated websites on-line at a minute, and they are made up of numerous prospective customers. World wide web trend such as blogging, site-building and web design template are made even wealthier with the better engagement with women. It is in this sphere that women have made their existence sensed in social networks are constantly filled with women bloggers. Regardless, women have taken writing a blog greatly, and they make-up a sizable area of the users list of many social network sites.

Right now, women bloggers regularly slug it out along with guy bloggers upon the net for sharing viewers that’s once centered primarily on guys. The influence from the large numbers of women bloggers cannot be rejected any more, which is surrounding the web marketing and advertising world in manners which you cannot observed before. Any company prepare an online marketing approach that will forgets to handle females should be the company’s negative aspect. As web design templates seen recently, lots of readers who currently use the social networking sites are generally women. This specific understanding is made increasingly that most of the women manage the family expenses.

How Businesswomen Can Use the Internet to Increase Their Profit


Centuries ago, women and men do not have equal rights. Men are always superior to women. This is because the society believes that there are so many things that only men are capable of doing. Women were seen as the weaker species.

But this had been changed thanks to the different revolutions and amendments in the law. Now, women are no longer prohibited to go to school or to vote. Also now, women can pursue any career that they want to and they no longer have to just stay at home. On some parts of the world, men and women receive the same amount of salary.

Other than that, women now can use computers and the internet to make their businesses more successful. Below are some of the benefits that businesswomen can get from the internet.

First, you can use the internet to create a website for your shop to increase your sales. You can also use it to post advertisements to different websites. Say for example you are selling http://www.automatickittylitterbox.com/, all you need to do is to make an attention-grabbing advertisement and website.

Another is that you can increase your contacts for your business through the use of the internet. Here, you can meet new friends and create new bonds. You can then sell your products to them. This will make your business prosper more.

Lastly, you can use it to research about new tactics on how you can improve your business. Researching is made easier by using the internet.

Who says that only men can benefit from the internet? We too can get the best out of it.

Side Stepping Internet Filters


No I’m not talking about becoming an Internet freedom fighter and smashing down the Great Chinese Firewall.  In fact my inspiration for this post is a little more sedate, I started missing my favorite TV soap!

I’ve lived in New York for two years now and love it hear, but as with any Ex-Pat there are things you always miss from your home country.  For me there’s a selection of food items (mostly very mundane), my family and friends of course and then watching television shows without advertising breaks.  In fact I don’t watch much TV here but I really do miss my weekly fix of a show called Eastenders.

Now you’d think it would be no problem to watch things like this in the high tech world we live in, after all the BBC broadcast all their content online.  But alas that’s not enough because if you’ve ever tried using the BBC Iplayer application outside Britain you’ll find you just get blocked.  The reasons behind this are probably financial but to be honest I’m not entirely sure, but I did know that if someone stops you doing something online – then somebody else has probably figured out how to circumvent that!

Fortunately it’s true. I did my intial research on the subject and found this post - .  This is actually all you need, a simple way to make the BBC think you are based in the United Kingdom when you connect.  This is actually very easy as the article above illustrates, you connect trhough a third party server based in Britain. From then the whole wonderful world of commercial free BBC media is open to you.  You can actually now subscribe directly but this is only available on the Ipad currently.  That’s one piece of technology I have so far resisted and I’m not paying $400 for a TV show.

So give it a try, once you figure it out you can access other sites.  If you’re learning French for example – try out M6 replay which broadcasts lots of US shows in French. All you need to do is connect via a French server this time to bypass the block.

Women and Wine


Until a few years ago, the idea of a female winemaker was almost crazy.  Only around 5% of commercially active wineries as of a decade ago, had female winemakers.

Things have changed.

The next generation of winemakers is largely trained at UC Davis and their famous viticulture program.  63% of their current graduating class are women. There was a time that you could hardly give a wine gift to a feminist friend, because it was hard to find a bottle made by a female winemaker.

Over 30% of all Napa Valley winemaking jobs are now held by women.

The highest paid winemaker in the world currently is Helen Turley, who takes a percentage of sales to help struggling wineries (or at least those struggling, but still with great vineyard locations).

Yes, things have changed and if the wine industry is capable of change-all things seem possible!

Finding your true love online


Many dating sites have been put up on the internet to present answers to people looking for true love or romance online. While most people who create profiles on different online dating sites only do that for the sake of romance, others search for something else. It has been substantiated that finding your true love wouldn’t be defined by the girl next door. Remember that true love is a sequence in the dating line where partners can exchange meaningful information; this also means that the likes and dislikes aren’t parallel to each other. Remember that if you meet a girl, the love most be pure and good for it to bear enough strength to fulfill a relationship. The most informative site I found in Belgium was SiteRencontreGratuit.be, I would suggest for you to find one that fits you best and follow their tips in finding true love online.

Online dating is seemingly helping people differentiate the difference between romance and love. So how do you find true love online and hence hit it off to a great future that could even lead to marriage? Well, for one, most of the relationships that take place online, about fifty to seventy five of those ends up in marriage, and the reason is that you get what you have always wanted. In order to start your journey and connect with the right partner online, you need to find an online dating site, and hence design your profile. A recent clear photograph can also help spice things a little bit and the road to great romance begins!

Researching Movies On The Computer


Ladies, have you ever had trouble recalling the name of a great movie you once saw that you wanted to share with your friends? I know I have!  The good news is that modern technology makes it a lot easier to research this type of thing.

I’m sure you are all familiar with Internet search engines, but what you may not be aware of is just how versatile they are!  Let us imagine you cannot remember a movies name, but you can remember the general plot and/or some of the actors involved.

As an example I will use an RV movie I once saw. I do not remember the title, but I do remember a couple of things.  The first thing I remember is that it starred Robin Williams, so that is one serach term I can use.  A second thing I recall is that the movie is about a vacation the family featured in the film took. 

Using these clues I can type ’robin williams vacation’ into a search engine and lo and behold, the first result that comes back references the movie I was looking for – it was called RV.

Search engine technology is good at piecing together snippets of information that we recall to provide data that we can’t quite remember.  As long as you have a computer handy you can access these useful tools whenever you need to!

Women in Enginnering


There is a serious shortfall in the amount of women entering the design and computing sector. There is also a serious inbalance in the percentage of women taking up engineering jobs. Both these sectors require people who are gifted intellectually; and thus there is no physical impediment in women taking up positions such as software design engineer, computer programmer, electrode design engineer and so on. What is holding women back is a culture that tends to regard women as unsuitable for highly skilled and highly paid jobs. We all admire women doctors, female corporate leaders, female artists etc. but we are apt to see these successful women as the exception tio the rule rather than the norm.

As regards computer skills people are apt to aim low. Of course it is essential to be able to grasp the basics of such important programs as Word, Excel and Powerpoint. But these are not skiills of the highest order: they are not going to lead on to jobs where a woman can become an industry leader. Rather these are more clerical programs and as such people who use them are destined to do jobs with poor renumeration rates.

If, as a woman you are interested in computers and you want to be a software enginner then you should study computer programs such as C, C++. Javascript and so on. If you want to enter the field of aerospace design then you must learn Unigraphics and Siemens NX  systems. If you want to design websites then you must master Adobe tools and HTML.

The important thing is to aim high with your computer skill ambitions. If not, you will become nothing more then a high tech clerk.

The Danger of Female Social Networking


It’s not that using sites like Facebook is necessarily dangerous, it’s more that women use these sites in a much more open way. If you have a Facebook or Twitter account or something similar, scroll down and see who is posting what.  You’ll probably find in something like Facebook that women tend to post

1) More Often

2) More Personal Information

3) Emotional Information

The difficulty is that although women tend to be more open about  their lives and feelings, sharing on the internet is not necessarily a great idea.  I have a selection of teenage female relations who seem to post their innermost feelings online. Every day there’s some story of teenage angst or how horrible boys are.  It’s no great suprise but when these thoughts are spoken they are quickly forgotten – online they will be sitting there when you’re thirty years older.  Would you be embarrassed to have your teenage ramblings read by a potential employer 10 years in the future ?  I certainly would but this is what these people are letting themselves in for.

I will cite the example of an acquaintance of mine who has set up as a management consultant.  She’s very talented, driven and professional – however if you google her name you see a different side.  On the first page of results  you will find a long meandering blog talking about maritial and financial problems.  Is this the impression she will be seeking to make to her prospective clients – she’d be utterly horrified I think.

Be careful of what you upload, that picture or comment could be up there for the rest of your life (indeed probably beyond).  There is also the matter of other information leakage, things like personal emails and web browsing history.  Unfortunately for the majority of people this is also accessible to people stored in the logs and servers of your ISP.  If you’re concerned about this security areas then may I suggest checking out this blog - http://www.theninjaproxy.org/

The internet certainly has way more benefits that disadvantages but care should be taken.  Sites like Facebook encourage you to share as much of your life as you can, yet all this information is then instantly in the public domain.  I’ll leave you with this thought – many house burglars trawl through Facebook looking for people posting online holiday snaps from abroad, can you guess why???

Online Shopping For Mother


Many years ago, there was still different level for men and women. Men was the superior one who took a lead for everything, at home women had to be good housewife who took care the household and men worked for searching money. Indeed that situation is still happen until now.

Women are force to leave her dream to be independent and she has to obey her husband instead. But life changes you now. Now day even women can organize he life as much as she wants. Even if she is a wife and a mother. A mother without forgetting her duty to take care of her children can be useful to ear money too.

All she needs to do is having computer at home which has connection to the internet. She can provide an online shopping at her home. Online shopping is easy to manage. It does not have a lot energy and time to waste. She just need to collect a photo of the products she wants to sell and posts it in her blog first. Then she needs to find a bait to buy her product. Lonely yet rich woman is the right target for this business.

Then she needs to post her advertisement before she is ready to sell the product. She just needs to be clever about what is the newest product people wants to buy now days. If she has a pet organization’s connection, she can sell an auto litter box for cat lover, just make sure to learn the following automatic litter box reviews first before buy. She can also sell clothes or gadget that every woman out there is dying to buy.

So for a mother out there, do not worry if you want to be business women but your husband does not let you do that. Even thought the husband has the very right to forbid you to work, because he is worried that you will neglect your precious children. You still can do it by doing the online shopping. It is fun and it can give you income as much as your husband. So try it and get the profit.

Devices for Traveling


The idea behind travel has changed a lot with the improvement in global communication technology. When I first started traveling I used to bring a phone card with me and tried to find a place that I could use it once a week to phone home just to let them know I was still alive. I have memories of childhood trips to nearby Spain and having to go to a special telephone booth in order to make an overseas call.

I believe that it was partly this lack of an effective global communication system that led partly to the belief on many people’s parts that they prefer being out of contact when they go on holiday. They want to leave it all behind, so that they can really relax and forget about their jobs and other concerns while on vacation. This is certainly an attitude I can understand for people who are stuck in front of a computer all day doing monotonous work like data entry.

However, now that fiber optics have been laid across all the oceans and now that there are cheap land connections to nearly everywhere in the world, it is a matter of choice whether one chooses to go incommunicado on holiday. If you stay on Bangsak Beach in Khaolak you might notice there are very few people or shops around. You may feel cut off from the tourist center of Khao Lak but if you have a laptop computer or other mobile device you needn’t feel cut off from the rest of the world.

You can buy a cheap mobile phone and a phone card and make a call. You could plug the phone into your computer and use it get on the internet. It is, however, very likely that the resort where you are staying will have wi-fi hotspots that you can use. There is also the possibility of catching 3G on a smart phone or Kindle to get on the internet.

It is worth choosing a laptop computer or other internet access device with the latest connectivity functions to give you the most options for getting on the internet. Newer models of laptop computer are getting more intuitive in finding wi-fi signals that you can use.

Another factor is size and durability. Although it is nicer to watch movies on a large screen, for traveling it is more convenient to find a small laptop that will easily fit in your day pack or handbag. It is an expensive piece of kit and so you don’t want to lose it.

Finally, it is worth spending extra money for a device with a hard case. When traveling there are always times when devices are bumped or are dropped.

Finding Luxury In This Economy


Given the huge economic downturn you might think that no one is looking for luxury items any more.  That isn’t exactly the case, but it doesn’t always hold true especially when you start talking about luxury gift baskets.

To start, people who are both willing and able to spend a couple of hundred dollars on a gift basket are going to not be affected much by small economic downturns.  Heck, even the big one we’ve been experiencing lately probably doesn’t even make a dent in their net worth!

Clearly that’s a nice place to be, but I wonder if women can effectively market to these types of people online.  As much as I like social media and the type of brand awareness it builds, I have yet to see it social media turn into sales.

Any advice how to make that happen for women looking to build brands online?

Women Winning in Wine Using Computers


Wine is certainly an interesting industry for a number of reasons.  Most winemakers are men.  Most winemaking students are women.  Most people (read between the lines, consumers) expect winemakers to be men and to be artistic types.

Women can actually take advantage of those facts by using computers and science to their advantage.  Winemakers, especially those trying to make the best wine gifts are going to be stressed for time to say the least.  Using computers and math/science can not only allow female winemakers to make simply better wine, but in additon they will be able to check and recheck their calculations more easily and effeciently than others.  Those abilities are going to certainly lead to better wine!

I Like Wine Clubs


I joined a wine a month club a while ago and I have to admit, it’s pretty damn cool.

I enjoy getting wine delivered straight to my front door.  There isn’t any stuffy wine store employee, or even the need to talk to anyone.  Really, really good wine goes out straight to my door.

I like not having to worry about what someone is going to say to me and I like being able to drink good wine without having to think about buying it.  For those of us working to learn computers on a daily basis-we’re allowed to make other aspects of our life simple aren’t we?

Escape your Computer: Get a Spa Treatment in Thailand


It is essential for professional women to learn computer literacy. Nowadays the term ‘literacy’ disguises the fact that there are many programs that are used in the work place. For general office work there are word and excel. For presentations there is powerpoint; and, for design applications there is the entire Adobe suite to master. That is not all: there are also computer languages such as C and C++, as well as HTML, PHP and javascript that are all essential in the online world.

It is not just women that are lacking in many of these computer skills, it is most of the population. The good thing about computers is that they are entirely knowledge based. There is no physical dimension to computers, such as for example a career in the armed forces, that places women at a disadvantage.

The only problem with a career in computers is that the sedentary lifestyle can ruin your posture and give you a bad back. Staring at a computer screen can ruin your eyesight. That is why it is a good idea to take a holiday once in a while to get away from your desk, unwind and just relax.

The hot new destination in Thailand is Koh Phangan. Previously a hippy hang-out, the Thai island has had a recent make-over and is now one of the most exclusive tourist destinations in Thailand. Such 5 star hotels as Anantara Rasananda, Santhiya and Panviman offer great service and luxury accommodation that matches anything on Koh Samui, but in a pristine natural environment with a gorgeous unspoiled beach that goes beyond anything available in Koh Samui.

While enjoying the beauty of such beaches as Thong Nai Pan Noi you can treat yourself to a Thai massage, herbal sauna or other spa treatment. It will do wonders for your cramped and hurting body and prepare you for getting back in the office with renewed vigor and determination to out-perform your male colleagues.

Internet Access, Women and the Developing World


There are still surprisingly few women online in the developing world. In India, famed for its internet gurus, there are only 100 million people online, in Brazil about 60 million people and in Russia about 60 million people. Considering the huge populations in these countries the numbers are very small.

The reason for these small figures for people online is to do with infrastructure. Many areas in developing countries have little telephone wire coverage. Also computers remain prohibitively expensive.

This could all change with mobile phone technology. Even the poorest often have access to a cell phone or mobile phone. 3G technology and smart phone technology means that more people can in the future go online via their mobile phones. It is estimated that in the next few years there could be over a billion new people online. Many of these people will be women.

Where in developing countries men had the advantage economically because of physical strength, this could all change in the future. Women can compete economically with men online. Indeed it is often the case that women in developing countries out earn men on the internet. This is due to content outsourcing. Women in India, the Philippines and elsewhere can stay at home and look after the family as well as work online.

In Thailand many of the owners of internet cafes are women. In places like Thongsala in Koh Phangan and Chaweng in Koh Samui many of the women making money through the internet are women.

Finally, as the importance of the intellectual economy increases it is access to information that will be the key to success. The more women that go online the more chance a country will have of being competitive in the future.
