A better road map to employment in these days of pandemics

Well, we've all seen our worlds turned upside down over the last year or so, haven't we? The Covid-19 pandemic has seen jobs lost and many businesses running at half pace while others have disappeared completely. Governments have been stretched to the limit trying to keep workers in employment and some workers have been encouraged - especially in the entertainment industries - to retrain for a completely different career. So, if you are in that position, how do you get yourself back on your feet and into meaningful employment again? You can either go through the usual channels where you ...  More

Learn everything about coding from the experts and have it delivered to your browser

When I was a lad, coding was known simply as computer programming. These days, according to Wikipedia, computer programming is the process of designing and building an executable computer program in order to accomplish a specific task, while the language it's written in is known as coding. It's the art of finding a sequence of instructions that tell a computer what to do in order to achieve a desired result. Computer programming used to be solely the destination of university students but these days, kids can go to coding camp in their school holidays to learn how to design games and ...  More

An easy way to resize your videos for ALL your social media ads and posts

What is it with social media anyway? Every different site has its own set of viewing variables. Some are viewed in landscape, some can only be seen in vertical and each has its own sizing characteristics. It's a bit of a pain in the ass if you need to post visuals because each one begs for a slightly different sizing or aspect ratio. If you are an advertiser working across all your social media accounts you'll find that your work load has increased three fold. Well, hold your horses there, because it all just became a fair bit easier.   More

Forget Zoom. Here's a better virtual meeting app for home and remote teams

With so many companies around the world being affected by the pandemic it's no wonder that there's been a bit of a problem in getting relevant information out there to your workforce. Zoom seems to have become the go-to platform to communicate with your team. However, that has its own problems. For a start, it requires everyone to be in front of their camera at a certain time of day so that you can get your message across. This either means a disruption of the working day or the 'meeting' takes place out of office hours. Another problem lies in the fact that so many companies have staff ...  More

Keep an eye on your team while they're working at the office or working from home or remotely

There are a great many lessons that can be learned from the pandemic of 2019-20 (and 2021, if it comes to that.) On the personal side, patience, self-discipline and the ability to be able to listen to and trust experts are the things that immediately come to mind. However, when it comes to our working lives, there's little doubt that things are going to have to change rather radically over the coming years. With many companies having staff working all over the world, there has long been the inconvenience of having remote workers in far-flung territories on top of office-based staff in ...  More

A simple, free website builder - requiring no technical knowledge - that gets you online in a flash

According to recent sales figures, online sales figures in June increased by 76% compared to the previous year. That's an astonishing amount. While the July figures dropped back to a 55% increase - due to stores reopening across the country - it still signifies that people are favouring online sales rather than visiting a Main Street store. So, one would have to say that, if you have a product or service to sell, it's never been more important to have an online presence. Many have avoided having a website for a number of reasons. Some are freelancers or sole business people who don't think ...  More

An easy way to find out if your online dating partner is all that they say they are

There's little doubt that dating apps have contributed a lot to the love lives of people from all over the world over the last few years. According to a recent study, about one third of Americans have used a dating app or a dating website. That's a significant rise from 2013 when the figure was about 11%. However, while 12% of people claim to have found a long-term relationship online there have been plenty of sob stories to go along with the happy ones. The anonymity of individuals online has left the gate open for some to take advantage of online partners for one reason or another. So, ...  More

Forecast who will win the 2020 Presidential election with this fun pooping pigeon game

You've got to admit, the US election process has got weirder and weirder over the last few years. Probably the strangest statistic of them all is the fact that the LOSER of the 2016 election received a good 3 million MORE votes than the person who now holds the office of the 'leader of the western world.' Yeah, I know. It's hard to get your head around, isn't it? When Trump was first elected, many used to find some of his comments humorous but that has all gone out of the window now. The polls all suggest that, this time around, it will be the Democrats who prevail. However, I seem to ...  More

Access all your apps fast across a better desktop

In the early days of app development it was always a topic of much amusement that many people would have heaps of apps on their smartphones yet would rarely use any of them. It's all changed now, of course. These days our lives are virtually run by apps whether it is to communicate with our friends and family, plan our public transport, buy goods and services, watch videos or to simply do a Google search . When it comes to our business lives there has been a complete revolution that has made it possible to run the whole business using a variety of apps for everything from accounts to ...  More

The safest and most secure virtual board meetings you'll ever have

This Covid 19 business has knocked us about so much that we forget at times the impact it can have on our first world values. For example, I was talking to a friend who works in a high rise building with close to 1000 employees the other day. Many of his team are still working from home and the reason for that is a simple one - the company can get its workers to the building but, given that lifts can only accommodate a few people at a time, it would take them hours to get all their workers to their floor or office. There was another problem that he told me about too. They are having ...  More
