Improve school grades with a designated tutor online or in person

Well, September is here again and that means that it's the beginning of a new school year in the US. Its probably time to ask yourself how you went last year and if there were areas where you struggled. Did your grades live up to expectations or are there changes that you could make that might turn around any academic or organizational weaknesses that have dragged down your grades? Teachers love to see their students putting in effort of their own to improve their grades and, more often than not, a private tutor is the best way to achieve that. Apart from anything else, teachers are much ...  More

Turning hiring on its head by getting the best qualified professionals at the right price

It seems a little unfair that the expert professional freelancer rarely gets their true worth in the marketplace these days. What tends to happen is that a business advertises for the most qualified expert in their field for a project, the professional submits a price and the market takes care of itself. It's the way it's worked for years. The only trouble is, businesses tend to be drawn to the cheapest possible option and both sides end up settling for less. The business loses out because they don't get the best people available and the professional doesn't get full worth for their ...  More

A free crowdsourcing marketplace for hiring great professionals for your project

While we rely on the Internet for so many different things, one of its downfalls is, without a doubt, it's inability to show its personal side - especially in the hiring of professionals to do a particular job. This is particularly evident in business where facts and figures may tell one story but fail to take into account the compatibility factor, amongst other things. In truth, no matter how many ways we professionals try to sell ourselves online, there is absolutely nothing that has the effect of a word-of-mouth recommendation. ProfectMarket is a new marketplace for business and ...  More

The best place to gossip anonymously

There's a little bit of voyeurism in all of us it appears. Theres nothing more exciting for some than to hear or share a bit of gossip with others. Youve only got to have watched one episode of the tv series "Pretty Little Liars" to realize that. Many of us also seem to like to be fairly anonymous ourselves - especially when we are sharing our private information with others. Local Anonymous is a free, social sharing application for iOS where you can post and share your secrets and confessions in your local area without anyone ever finding out who you are.   Local Anonymous is your ...  More

30 minute language learning with native speakers

They say that the only way you can really master another language is by conversing with native speakers in a one-on-one situation. This, however, can be an expensive and time consuming business. However, given that so many of us have webcams connected to our computers these days, it seems like a sensible idea to hone your language skills up online. Fluently takes advantage of this by offering 30 minute language learning sessions - with native speakers with a shared interest, no less - at probably the cheapest rates that you will find.   Fluentify connects language learners with real ...  More

Get locals to tell you what's good through social networks

I have a friend who runs a cafe locally and I checked out the online reviews for the place the other day. They varied from ultra-complimentary (probably written by themselves) to ultra-critical (probably written by people from rival cafes.) To be quite honest, it didn't tell me much about the place. The whole concept of reviews needs to be thrown back on the people that matter most - customers - and Sooligan is a social review site with a difference. It takes it's 'reviews' from the comments on the pages of social media to give you a much broader overview of the localized places around ...  More

Listen to what your social interest network has to say

Secretly, whether we like to admit it or not, there is a little bit of voyeurism in most of us. We want to know what is happening around us. It might be listening into someone's conversation about the restaurant they ate in last night or hearing someone else's opinion about a new store that has just opened. But eavesdropping in on other people's conversations is probably not the best or the most reliable way of finding out what is being said. Evzdrop (which is pronounced eavesdrop) is a new type of app that lets you tap into what people are saying about the places around you. It may be ...  More

I wonder how many of you know what's going on in terms of entertainment in your city tonight.
