Individuals that volunteer with a CRO (contract research organization) may have the same illness and wind up with a great support system. Wherever a

A Shift in Perspective on “Persuasion”

Nobody wants to be judged.

Nobody wants to be around those who make him/her feel “wrong.”

When you make people feel like crap, you may convince them to adopt your point-of-view (POV) temporarily. Buy your product, once. Join your program, once.


But you know full well that it’s not going to last.

When your POV is not in alignment with their values or beliefs, your recommended course of action is not going to resonate nor yield sustainable or meaningful results for them.

Most of us have bought products or programs because some sales copy made us feel inadequate, guilty or “wrong” and gave us the impression that we need to buy that whatever cantaloupe widget to fix the problem or even ourselves.

Yet more often than not we let the program/training/cantaloupe widget sit on our hard drive and couldn’t bring ourselves to implement, let alone get results.

What Does the Future Hold for the Property Market?

A slight uptick was witnessed in the annual house price growth in November, but the market is still subdued. Prices were 1.9 per cent higher than 1 year ago, up from 1.6 percent in October, which was a 5-year low.

The chief economist of Nationwide, Robert Gardner said that future trends depend on how the wider economic conditions evolve. In the short run, the uncertain economic outlook and the squeezing of household budgets will probably dampen demand even though unemployment is close to 40-year lows and borrowing costs are still low.

If employment continues rising and uncertainty lifts in the coming months, it is likely that activity will pick up through next year. The squeeze on household incomes has started to moderate and policymakers have indicated that interest rates will only rise at a moderate pace to a limited extent in the coming years, but only if the economy performs … Read the rest

Uninterruptible Power Supply Guide

An uninterruptible power source (UPS for short) or uninterruptible power supply is a type of electrical apparatus that provides a load with emergency power whenever the mains power or input power source fails. It is in contrast to a standby generator or emergency or auxiliary power system, in that it provides nearly instantaneous protection against input power interruption, through supplying energy that is stored in flywheels, supercapacitors, or batteries. A majority of uninterruptible power sources have fairly short (just a couple of minutes) of on-battery run-time. However, it is enough to get a standby power source started or to shut down protected equipment properly. It is a kind of continuous power system.

Typically a UPS is used for protecting hardware like telecommunication equipment, data centres, computers, and other types of electrical equipment where unexpected power disruptions can potentially cause data loss, serious business disruption, fatalities, or injuries.

How Brands Can Play a Driving Role in the Evolving Influencer Marketing Sector

Influencer marketing has grown in popularity in a field where social media is at the core of the industry. In previous years, influencer marketing was characterised by a less structured approach lacking what would be considered a ‘stitched-up’ strategy. After this, larger brands started dabbling in the industry using the counsel and advice of third-party influencer marketing experts, to bring methodology to the strategic processes. The overall result was an increase in positive brand sentiment that has been consistently seen and proven via campaign performance and industry surveys.

Fuelled by a growing ability to gauge performance across different media platforms, the influencer marketing industry has become one of the most measurable areas in the overall media mix. Companies have developed a degree of confidence in the influencer marketing scene which was lacking in previous years. Furthermore, the use of influencers (also known as digital creators) is becoming a more accepted … Read the rest

Defining an Uninterruptible Power Supply

In some situations, the main power source can fail and in such cases, it’s important to have some type of back up option. This is where the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) acts as an electrical power source in emergency scenarios. It’s important to note that this is different to a regular standby generator or emergency power system, because it works immediately during those short input power interruptions with the help of flywheels, batteries, and supercapacitors. However, this also means the on-time is shorter and works in small bursts (2-3 minutes) compared to a regular standby power source. It is simply a way to keep your equipment safe once the power goes down.

A UPS is often seen alongside telecommunications equipment, computers, and data storage solutions to make sure power disruptions don’t cause issues with the underlying systems.

For example, electric drum pumps will need uninterrupted power and may cause huge … Read the rest
