The answer to computation dilemma

Are you kidding me? For so long I have been calculating things manually, that apparently, there are good websites that will do it for you, the exact same service. I’m not a mathematician, and that’s been so much mental energy straining over how to figure these things out. I’ve sat there with my syllabus, and my marks from a semester, and deliberately been trying to figure out how well I need to do on my exam to get the mark that I want, or, vice versa, how poorly I would need to fail an exam to fall out of the range that I am comfortable with each evening in a course. I do this, not only isn’t then neurotic tic, because it helps me prioritize what I should be studying for. As you know, students do not have unlimited time, so you need to know what is the best bang for your buck in terms of being resourceful about how you use your time to study. If I only have in it amount of time to study that is not unlimited, which literally happens for every exam period, I want to make sure that I am using my time in a way that represents great efficiency and value. These web sites, these final grade calculator websites, are the most effective and helpful tool for figuring out what you need to be focusing on the most, and what you need to be focusing on the least, in terms of using your final exams to get the final grades in every one of your individual courses. The algorithm and equation is extremely simple, and it only needs three variables from you, which are basically available on instant command, and don’t require any outside consultation, unless you a forgotten what your final grade in the course is, which is usually pretty easy to obtain.

Increase Productivity And Efficacy

I think that outsourcing is a very overlooked way of getting things done in a way that cultivates efficiency and Effectiveness. Productivity is talked about as if it is prioritize, but whenever I see companies that don’t I would source that aspects of their business that are creating inefficiency and health and productivity comma I have to give my head a shake. Seriously, I don’t think that this is the kind of thing that should be taken lightly. It’s hard to profit, and productivity is the best way to ensure that you are on the right track. So, when there are these little road blocks that continue to get in the way of productivity and nobody is doing anything about it, no proactive action is being taken, like Outsourcing, I can’t really sympathize with that business says that they’re not finding a way to make as much money if they would like. Yes, call it harsh, but I have no sympathy for anybody that refuses to Outsource things that they need to get done. I find it this manifests most specifically with programming and software engineering needs, where people either hire someone full-time when their business does not constitute having a full-time software engineer on staff, or they try to overburden people to perform complex programming needs, when either their team is too small or they just don’t have the right technical capabilities to achieve the vision with the most success. Brutal. Absolutely brutal. So I think that if you are needing to get stuff done, you have no excuse not to be considering Outsourcing. From my perspective, software development outsourcing is very important to work with Outsourcing a lot of the time, I think.  Maybe that’s just my humble opinion, but I’m pretty sure the math backs me up on this one. Analyzed data seems to suggest that I’m right.

How this electric scooter can save the world

If I could have any motor scooter on the planet, it would be the one that is made by UNU. UNU has an innovative business model which allows you to purchase an affordable motor scooter that is completely electric. That means that you don’t have to worry about pollution it all, everything is powered by electricity. That electricity can come from any Source you want, because the battery is removable and can plug into any Outlet. So you can plug it into solar or renewable and energy if you have the access, or, if you don’t have the access, you can just plug it in at home. Regardless, all it takes is 5 hours to charge for about three days worth of driving. Yes this is the perfect City Driver. It’s not great for the Country Roads, as the speed limit map decided about 45 kilometers an hour, but if you’re just looking to explore your city and get from place to place, and never have to worry about finding a giant parking spot, this is the best solution for you. The company’s business model also revolves around providing the people who need it with it. That means, they’re not developing an Overstock, they wait until your order comes in, and then they put your specific scooter, of which you chosen the color and engine, into production. Once it’s done being produced, it gets delivered to your door. Right to your door, in a box. That is what I call service. And, they only deliver at a time that you say is convenient for you. Once it’s delivered, you open the box, and it is already road ready. That’s what I’m talking about. That is the type of service that more businesses should be pressures to conform to.

Allow me to say that I am sick and tired of living in a winter City

Allow me to say that I am sick and tired of living in a winter City. I am not trying to be negative about this kind of thing, but with the Advent of Facebook, I can see my friends complaining about all sorts of spring and summer problems in winter. Trust me, when it’s below freezing outside and you see your good friends arguing with each other about which Raleigh golf course they’re going to be playing at down on their North Carolina long weekend where it’s expected to be a little overcast but at least 50 degrees and they’re talking about how it might be too cold for a game of golf in some areas of the city…

Beacons surpass the GPS and geolocation feature


Are you looking for a pair of Nike shoes in some sports store? Nowadays, the stores are really tech-savvy offering an iOS app for sales and specials notification, and you receive the alerts, if you have installed it before shopping.

If so, your iPhone buzzes, the moment your eye catches the shoes of your choice. The app in the store pushes a notification on the display with info. Now, how did this happen, this happens due to the beacons.


A beacon is a device set with Bluetooth Low Energy. It broadcasts data to the nearby listening devices. These devices do not communicate with beacons to get data.

For instance, in the shoe store, the app was on your iPhone waiting for the store’s beacon to appear within range. Once it “hears” the store’s beacon, your iPhone wakes up your app to handle the task. Thus your app knows you are near the shoe display and it displays information about the shoes.

Earlier to beacons, the apps of the smartphone used geographical region monitoring to receive location awareness.  The Geographical region monitors present a combo of GPS and Wi-Fi data determining a user’s location and then notifies an app as user enters or exits a region. This was referred to as geofencing. Regrettably geolocation fails to work in many situations, such as shopping malls, art galleries and also in the libraries.


How Beacons are useful


Beacons are used in various ways.  They can be placed adjacent to a stationary spot or some item moving such as:

  • A hardware store can place a beacon at each aisle end and help users in finding items that are in the nearby aisles.
  • An art gallery beacons positioned at each exhibit provides information on specific pieces as the user walks to them.
  • A food discovery app may monitor for iBeacons on food trucks moving around the city. When the user is close to a food truck with a daily special, the app tells the user about that day special.

iBeacons solve several problems using geographical region monitoring. Devices owing to the proximity to specific beacons are able to determine their location. In this way iBeacons have surpassed the GPS location and now it is not required.

iBeacons from Apple and Eddystone from Google have made a progress with beacons. Apple’s iBeacons is available to iPhones, while the Eddystone is available to Android phones as well. However, the Beacons is catching up and very soon it will be an integral part of your apps.

Common problems faced by real estate agents

Common problems faced by real estate agents

Problems are frequently encountered in all sphere of life. Although in the real estate business there are always moments in the sense that you will always have at least one or two transactions to make. There are more opportunities with new customers on a regular basis, but there some setback that comes with real estate.

I will like to highlight some problems common to West Vancouver realtors that every single dealer will face

  • Inability to control the market:

One particular problem faced by Burnaby real estate agents is the failure to monitor the market of the local area. This problem is unavoidable; no realtor can actually control the market. The only thing they are like to control is how you can convince your customer about the situation. Since the local market plays a vital role in the selling of property or not, you have to be conscious of the time when the area will be a selling market and when it would be a buy market. This way you will be opened to the opportunity to exploit the time to your advantage.

  • When emotions comes in the business

Selling and buying a home can be pretty emotional, as a realtor you will experience times when clients will get messy with their feelings, like sadness, nervousness, stress, uncertainty, anger or even happiness. Sometimes customers will get mad over property’s prices and begin to react based on it. Realtors should show maturity at this point.

  • Disagreement over property’s price

There are times buyer will disagree with the price of a property, and there are also times where sellers will think their property is worth more than the price you give them. Pricing issues are seen to be the biggest problem of all. Vast majority of clients will be adamant over the prices you offer them, but it is your job to explain and educate the customers about the effect of the price they are offering.

  • Times when the location affects the deal

There are times when a costumer has found his or her dream home, but the problem is in the area they want it to be. This definitely over the dealer’s control and this might make you feel of less quality. The only thing you try to do in this case is to provide the client with adequate information about the community and the progress in it.

What you need to know about rocking chairs


Rocking chairs are types of chairs that have 2 curved bands that connect the legs on each side to each other. These allow people to rock themselves by shifting their weight back and forth or by lightly pushing the ground. They are very relaxing and elegant. They could be added to any room to give it an instant makeover.

When was the first rocking chair made?

The first rocking chairs appeared at the beginning of the 18th century. They were simply ordinary chairs with bands attached to them so that they could be rocked back and forth. They were mainly connected to parenting because the rocking motion soothed infants. Mothers would sit in these chairs and rock their children to sleep.

Later Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, helped the design become more popular. By that time, bentwood rocking chairs were widely used because of their beautiful designs and lightweight.

What does a rocking chair look like?

Traditionally speaking a rocking chair would have a long back and 2 armrests. It might even have a foot support. The long back is designed to support the back and the neck. There is a slight comfortable inclination unlike normal chairs, like dining room chairs. The inclination is perfect to take the weight off the lower back and allows the person to relax. Some rocking chairs have shorter backs or no foot support. The designs vary to match the style of the surroundings.

What are rocking chairs made of?

Classical designs are usually made of wood. Wood gives a sense of warmth and elegance and is widely used because of its stability and resistance to wear. Maple wood, cherry wood, walnut wood and mahogany wood are usually used to make rocking chairs because they are hard and stable. The design and the place where you are planning to use the rocking chair will affect the type of wood chosen.

More modern and contemporary designs use metal and polymers instead of or in addition to wood. These styles offer the same level of comfort but are made to match different decorations and personal preferences. Modern rocking chairs would still have the rocking bands at the bottom but could be more versatile when it comes to the choice of fabric or the place where the chair would be used. They are also usually lighter.


Understanding the attributes of different rocking chairs will help you choose the best one for you.

Consistency is the key

Consistency is the key

When approaching buying or selling  Burnaby real estate like marketing all other places any West Vancouver realtor with credibility will tell you, you have to keep at it, and keep at it long and hard.  While the average time it takes to sell a house in Burnaby is about a month with the selling price climbing over recent months, you will probably need to be at the coal face for a lot longer than that before you see any results.  It so often happens that frustration and boredom can set in before the finish line. Your success will depend on a definite plan and a plan to stick to it.


A realtor needs to be totally committed from the word go, one cannot just be trying the career for size to see if it suits your personality. You need to know that this is what you want to do because it is a 24/7 job. Tramping the neighbourhood you have chosen and getting to really know it well is vital if you expect to be taken seriously by your buyers and sellers alike. As a realtor who is familiar with the locality you are more likely to be trusted. This trust is something you need to build. Treating the job as a passing experiment will yield no results and you will just be wasting your time. You need to be prepared to “do the time” In fact you can expect to earn absolutely nothing from selling real estate for up to six months before you get your first sale and commission.  Be prepared for this.

Keep the result in focus 

Keep an eye on your end goal, but do not be so wrapped up in the results as to forget the journey. There is a lot of groundwork that needs doing. Apart from the slog of tramping around getting to know the place you will need to spend time networking, face to face with locals and spending time talking on the phone. Realtors have to be great communicators. If you are not prepared to give it your all you may as well give up and choose something else to do. Nobody said it was easy but the rewards are great.

Keep momentum

While being the best West Vancouver realtor is not a walk in the park you need self-belief.  Keep to your strategy and do not lose momentum. Keep being the best you can be giving quality advice and superior customer service.
