Joseph Bismark – His Work Ethic On Business

I found a blog post on Please Don’t Ask Alice. It talked about the power behind spirituality and how one person can make a huge difference in the lives of others if they properly understand how to lift them up with a strong work ethic. One person who understands this so well is the very experienced Joseph Bismark. Bismark is a leading businessman working with the IQ Group and even co-founded the huge QNet business known for their direct selling systems and the products that they sell.

Joseph Bismark – His Work Ethic On Business

One of the main things he focuses on is the power behind team work. He knows that simply bringing people together and working with other people on a one on one basis can help form relationships and help people achieve their highest potential. Joseph has also become very focused on guiding people towards their biggest dream on achieving more what and more success in their specific crafts at work. Joseph finds joy on giving his employees the tiny encouraging push to go after their goals within the company.

How Did He Become So Spiritual?

What sets this guy apart from other businessmen and myself is his growth in the Philippines. He flew there at just nine years old, and he became a monk for about eight years until he decided to jump right in to the corporate world. He became this huge giant success almost right away. It became such a huge success for him being in the corporate world, and after awhile, he finally grew with time to work with some of the world’s most amazing companies. 

Joseph believes in the power of encouragement for all of his employees. This is why he has become a huge successful businessman. He enjoys trying to benefit his employees so that they grow and become even better at their work. Whether it’s one on one training, encouragement, or simply helping them daily work together, he knows how to bring people and the entire team together to achieve a better business. I take his words and knowledge of my business everyday.

The Growing Developments and Uses of Image Recognition

Companies are consistently improving the functions and abilities of advanced technology. One of the technologies that has been experiencing an increase in usage and versatility is image recognition. Image recognition is the process of identifying an object, place, logo, or anything that consumers may be interested in. After the visual cues are identified, the consumer or user is given contextual information, such as prices, reviews, and/or locations. Several apps, social networks, and websites use image recognition technology to better assist their users, give and obtain data, and provide a new, interactive type of service.

Image Recognition Enhancements
Efforts to efficiently use and improve image recognition technology have made it possible to automate processes in depicting not just individual objects of a picture, but the entire scene. Experts have developed algorithms that correctly detect and label each object in a picture or image. Over time, these algorithms are perfected even more with an increase of factual depth and stringent criteria that allows even tiny objects or blurry images to be identifiable.

With the enhanced recognition, companies have begun to explore the true possibilities of its use. While some use it for meanings or locations in pictures, others use it for face recognition, advertising, or shopping.

Slyce
Slyce, or Slyce.it, is an innovative, leading company in image recognition technology. They have decided to revolutionize the retail industry for their business clients through visual searches and product recognition. Currently, over 6 of the top 20 leading retailers in North America work with Slyce.

The goal of recognition companies like Slyce is to help businesses and consumers be connected whenever the consumer desires. Slyce alone operates with many different divisions to achieve this goal: Pounce is a free downloadable app that allows its users to take a picture of an item that they want, compare and pay the prices, and have the product delivered to their doorstep; Craves allows the users to upload pictures of what they want and discover the best places to buy; And Drivetrain is the app development and engineering team making strides in how to further develop the technology. Recently, Slyce also obtained SnipSnap, a mobile coupon app.

Each of the algorithms used in all of the apps by different companies are rigorously designed to return close or exact matches for every image search. Image recognition technology is a great way to uncover relevant information, make purchases, and advertise. As more developments are underway, a myriad of possible uses and improvements are also becoming uncovered.

Daniel Amen and the Daniel Plan

The current world of nutrition and health has experienced a number of breakthroughs and is a far cry from what general nutrition was once understood as. Still, the current trends on healthy eating and dietary improvements nevertheless have not lost their faddish bend, and many ‘tested and proven’ diets supposedly able to ‘revolutionize one’s health’ are either duds or simply too difficult or too unappealing to keep up in the long run. 

Not only does this make eating and living a far more healthful lifestyle all but impossible, thanks to the presence of droves of processed and refined foods, and any thoughts of a more wholesome lifestyle for the overall betterment of one’s health goes down the proverbial drain. 

Meet Dr. Daniel Amen, he has nutritional plan that all-natural

Meet Dr. Daniel Amen, a nutritionist, professional psychiatrist, and best-selling author of a number of books on health, wellness and diet with a degree in medicine from Oral Roberts University School of Medicine. Dr. Amen’s take on successful health and wellness, particularly his focus on partaking of nutritionally dense whole foods to combat the most basic ailments to the more decidedly harmful types of disease, is the product of 32 years of practice. 

Dr. Amen believes that a diet which comprises of immunity-boosting and neuro-protective foods can do more than just improve overall health and wellness, but can actually help to prevent and even treat or reverse the effects of some common mental disorders like chronic depression, ADHD, ADD, Alzheimer’s, and dementia. Very impressive claims back by evidence. 

Dr. Amen’s specialized dietary plan, referred to as the ‘Daniel Plan’ (referring to the Biblical prophet and seer Daniel) comprises of a simplistic and holistic take on disease-preventative and restorative diet, with a primary focus on the consumption of whole grains, fresh vegetables, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids derived from seafood. But that’s not the whole of his diet plan. 

Not only is one meant to enjoy the wholesome food eaten on a daily basis, the Daniel Plan also focuses on a fulfilling and richly rewarding spiritual angle – in that dietary changes for brain health and disease prevention is just the tip of the iceberg, but that a spiritually enriching lifestyle should go along with it. Unlike fad diets that focus on one type of super-food as a ‘wonder-drug’, the Daniel Plan understands that the nutrition derived from food have to work synergistically and holistically. 

Coupled with an emotionally and spiritually fulfilling and nurturing lifestyle to truly work, the Daniel Plan is a far cry indeed from most diets that focus merely on weight loss, gorging oneself on super-foods, or counting calories and avoiding fats. If it’s a good, wholesome, and effective diet one is after – one that will drastically improve the overall quality of one’s life – then the Daniel Plan is the way to go!

I Will Never Leave FreedomPop

Remember when I did that post on FreedomPop back in November? At the time I thought I was just flexing my writing muscle doing a little profile on an interesting company, but a few months later, I’m a FreedomPop loyalist. I even liked them on Facebook, which I pretty much never do.

I’ve been with several different phone companies over the years, and all of them provided internet to me as well. After seeing how much money I was paying for both phone and internet, I was sick and tired of the high cost. I could easily play over $100 a month, between my phone and the internet, and the price did vary on a monthly basis. I had an internet limit, and if I went over it, I would see my bill go up each month. I tried to get unlimited internet, but the price was so high, I just had to cut back my usage.I decided it was smarter to stay within the limits of my current internet plan, as opposed to going to the unlimited internet on the same company. After a while, my day job decided that I could do a lot of my work from home, so I needed more internet usage. I tried it out for the first month, but my bill came up to be so high, I left the company the very next month. The next company that I went to was no better, and I still kept seeing an extremely high internet bill, even though my phone bill stayed with the previous company. 

I really needed a change, so I searched around to see which company could help me save the most money. After searching for so long, I came across FreedomPop, and I’m so glad that I did. Not only have I been able to save money, I’m using the internet like never before, and I’m able to complete my work from home. Working from home meant more money for me, even though I work a 40 hour work week. I now can do half of my work at home, and the other half at the office, and make more money. They even have a plethora of Wifi hotspots in my area which I can find with the FreedomPop app, so I can work at Starbucks if home is too distracting.

The internet is very important to me, and I like the fact that FreedomPop allows me to have the internet for $5 a month, and I created my own secure network in my home. I actually got my internet for free, and because I increase the speeds, I only paid a few dollars extra per month. I’m amazed at the price the company charges, especially for the great services they have. I decided to switch my phone over to FreedomPop as well, and I saw even more savings. I want to thank FreedomPop for everything.

Mark Ahn Explains the Success of Biotech to The Street

The Street spoke to Dr. Mark Ahn recently about his research into biotech startups. Dr. Ahn has his own company that was once a fledgling life sciences company. Now, he looks at the ways other companies handle their business. He knows that there are best practices for all businesses, and he hopes that his information will help new companies move in the right direction.

When Dr. Ahn looked at startups all over the biotech world, he notice that many of them did not want to wait to make a profit. The staff can be paid, but these companies were breaking even when their products had not all made it to the market yet. If these companies believed that they were not making money fast enough, they would panic. The panicked moves that these companies made would cause them to make business decisions that were not wise in the least.

When a company is not willing to wait for all its projects to come through, it is hard for that company to remain solvent. Dr. Ahn advises all these companies to move slowly in the process of creating new products so that they can be viable for many decades to come.

Drone Falls into Spring

The flying drones that everyone can order online have started to become popular not so long ago. In this short amount of time, however, many funny and not so fun stories involving them have developed.

Due to the sheer volume of these stories, some places consulted with BRL Trust about adding a series of strict regulations regarding these flying objects, in an effort to curb the dangers that these drones can present to ordinary citizens.

Hunting assisted by drones is totally forbidden and now, due to some happenings, even sightseeing in parks with the help of drones is forbidden, especially when they have bad pilots.

The Yellowstone National Park is attractive due to the hot springs that become brightly colored due to the bacteria contained in them. The helicopter images are amazing, and some visitors tried to obtain their own photo masterpieces by flying a drone over the hot spring.

The drones, however, do not actually have the same power, and due to programming errors in the flying of the drone, the drone fell into the hot spring. Not only that, but the owners insisted that an employee of the park went to look for it.

Obviously, the drone is not that easy to retrieve from the 121 feet deep and 370 feet in diameter water accumulation. Currently the park employees are wondering whether the metallic drone will not damage the chemical structure in the spring.

Abandonded Ship Rescused By Italian Air Force and Coast Guard From Disaster

A ship from Sierra Leone was abandoned by its crew as it lay about 40 miles away from reaching the mainland of Italy. The ship was called the Ezadeen and it was sailing under the flag of the African country of Sierra Leone. The ship is originally a livestock ship that transported livestock. However the Ezadeen as it was approaching Italy was believed to be carrying refugees from the Arab nation of Syria, or at least that’s how CNN covered the story, if Christian Broda’s reports are to be believed.

It appears the crew in charge of guiding the ship to the Italian mainland had left when stormy weather developed in the Ionian Sea. The crew had left the ship and put it on autopilot. The ship was destined to crash into the Italian mainland on the course set by the crew who abandoned the ship because of the stormy weather. The ship ran out of fuel and was stranded in the Ionian Sea with hundreds of people on board.

The Italian Air Force and Coast Guard responded and aided the people on board. The Italian Air Force landed Coast Guard officials on the ship using helicopters. After the Italian Coast Guard secured the ship and took control of it, the ship was tugged by an Icelandic ship called the Tyr to the Italian port city of Crotone. This is the second time this week that a ship carrying refugees was abandoned by its crew and left in the seas because of foul weather.
