How to start a business: The 4 tenets of business ethos or how to build relationships when starting a business

By Oleg K Temple, November 2018

When researching how to start a business, etiquette is one of the fine details people tend to overlook. Etiquette is too often taken for granted and its importance underappreciated. Despite the fact that proper manners are a sign of a good upbringing and label the individual as a cultured member of society. After all, if you do not understand how business mannerisms work, you have no business being in business, right? First impressions are important, as is body-language. We all know that and yet we assume that we will always react correctly and respond flawlessly. However, etiquette is a learned skill like any other. It takes practice and a willing, supple frame of mind to assimilate good habits.

PART 1 of 3: An overview of risks and best practices when starting a company

Starting a business has never been more of an intense commitment than it is today. Will new business ideas conceived today still be viable in 2019, 2020 and beyond?

With the accelerating onslaught of globalisation, automation, artificial intelligence and ever increasing competition, entrepreneurs and investors need to think long and hard before shelling out actual resources for a hypothetically profitable start-up company. The outlook may be rosy, but optimism a business strategy does not make. “A bird in the hand…” as the saying goes. The most pertinent questions are these: is the proposed business model relevant to the market and sustainable? And are the people at the helm of the project credible, reliable and passionate about the venture?

20 Best Gift Ideas In 2018 For Busy Gentlemen

Best Birthday Present, Anniversary Or Valentine Gift Ideas For Men

Thinking of what to give an enterprising friend or co-worker? 

You could, of course, just give an Amazon gift card or... colder still, plain cash. That way the person can get what they want for themselves. However, money in an envelope or a bank transfer are such impersonal gifts, don’t you find? Almost inevitably, your congratulatory tokens will get mixed up with rent or grocery payments and your best wishes will get lost in the humdrum of everyday life. Yes, it is a pragmatic and time-efficient solution, but practicality and convenience are not the qualities that build lasting friendships. Attention, empathy and trust are.

 

The best storage devices smart money should buy

The vast bulk of the world’s computer data was created over the past couple of years. In 2013 this figure stood reportedly at 90% and today pundits estimate that the 3.7 billion folks online in 2017, create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data daily. All this information must be catalogued and stored for posterity, right? But a server is only as good as its storage drive. This article is all about helping you choose the right storage device for your specific needs.

Samsung T5 Portable SSD Review

Portable storage units are invaluable assets in today’s busy world, where we demand ever more time-saving and performance from our machines. With the advent of the USB flash sticks, the public developed a taste for convenience. Portable drives no longer belong, primarily, in the sanctified domain of architects, game developers, RAW photographers, video editors, graphic designers and other high-end professionals. Today, everyone with a smartphone fancies themselves as a proficient photographer and most people spread their work online through social media. Computers have limited storage and are vulnerable to attacks (such as the ransomware debacle of 2017), thus, many among us prefer to keep the built-in drive for programmes and store work files elsewhere.

Photographic history at a glance:

Photography is a huge industry, Although the first partially successful photograph dates back to 1816, only a few million pictures were taken during the 19th century. It was only in February 1900, when the first commercial camera was introduced, the $1 Kodak Brownie, did mass photo-mania truly take flight. In 1930, a billion photos were taken and the annual average continued to climb. It was 3 billion by 1960 and 86 billion pictures by 2000. By 2012, with the advent of the smartphone, the figures exploded. We were taking 380 billion photos per year. Already back then, on average 300 million photos were being posted to just Facebook every day. Today, just some two odd hundred years after the dawn of photography, experts estimate that every 75 seconds, humanity takes more photographs than it did throughout the entire 1800s. Amazing.

Oregon Tourism

By Oleg Temple, November 2015

Oregon, nicknamed ‘the beaver state’, is among the most picturesque and bio-diverse regions of the United States. As the ninth state in terms of size and only the 27th in terms of population (area larger than Romania, but just about four million inhabitants—roughly the same as Croatia), Oregon is a perfect getaway from the ever-more-intrusive technological hustle and bustle of the modern age.
