SCIENCE IS MADNESS




SCIENCE IS MADNESS


A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: "How heavy is this glass of water?"

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, "The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything."

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down! - source fb science is madness


I came across this post in FB and decided to share it with you my dear readers. Maybe unlike all of you, I tend to hold on my anger which is bad- No- really really bad 'coz it brings nothing but sadness and fear. I am a very vocal person and a lot of people don't like that. They want people and friends who won't say the truth on their faces. What they want are backstabbing bitch and monsters.

They presented to us the advantages of a Vending Machine Business. 

  • I learned that it is an all cash business. All sales transactions are immediately paid in cash. No credit. ( Walang utang)
  • Vending machines, in general, require only minimal maintenance.
  • There’s no need to hire sales employees, and your business is potentially open 24 hours a day. Because there is minimal overhead costs, you can sell your products at very competitive prices.
  • It is recession proof. It is a fact that people tend to buy more in retail than in bulk when times are hard.
Factor For Vending Machine Business Success

The success of a vending machine business primarily relies on three things:

Location. Location. Location.  Yes, folks. You must be able to choose the right location to enjoy maximum profits. 

Question: How do you determine if a location is a good place to put up a vending machine?

Answer: 


  1. The area should have constant foot traffic. 
  2. Second, the area should be secure and safe from vandals. 
  3. The product or products you'll offer must compliment the market profile of the area.
The third tip is actually the most important. Have you ever wondered why you see toilet paper vending machines inside restrooms, coffee vending machines near offices, soda vending machines in parking lots and candy or gumball vending machines in places where there are lots of children?
People buy from vending machines usually for a reason/s 

  • Out of need 
  • Out of impulse. 
Thus the vendo machine containing toilet papers are exactly located where we need them. coffee to awaken sleepy employees, sodas for the waiting drivers or to accompany us while driving and candies to tempt the sweet tooth of children.

Things To Consider When Starting A Vending Machine Business:



  • Find a suitable location and decide what products would do well in the area.
  • Inquire from the establishment or building administrator and ask the requirements and terms for putting up a vending machine in the area.
  • Consult the local government to know the legal process of getting business permits for your venture.
  • Look for vending machine suppliers or find sellers of second hand or used vending machines.
                        

  • Depending on the supplier, vending machines can either be bought or leased. Most of the time, they are franchised.
  • Monitor your inventory. Know your fast moving items to ensure that your vending machine will never run out of stock.
  • Regularly visit your location. Doing so will give you more insight on the quality of foot traffic and customers that you get.
  • Ensure that your vending machine is always clean, working well, attractive and readily visible. A dusty or faulty equipment will make people think that your products are old and of poor quality.
  • Before buying, leasing or franchising a vending machine business, always make sure that you are dealing with a reputable dealer or supplier. Ask for their terms and conditions when it comes to warranty, inventory, service and maintenance of the equipment.


PMAP: 50th PMAP Annual Conference


PMAP: 50th PMAP Annual Conference
Calling all PMAP Members and soon to be Members: 

The People Management Association of the Philippines invites you to the 50th PMAP Annual Conference happening on September 25 to 27, 2013 at the Philippine International Convention Center

Theme: Global Opportunities. Leaping Forward. Defying Limits.
The global economic landscape is seeing a new dawn, with Asia as its center and the Philippines, its sweet spot. The turnaround could not have come at a more opportune time. A young Filipino workforce is raring to go and governance is breaking through a renaissance of accountability and transparency. The message is unequivocal: We are open for business! It’s all systems go.

This year’s Annual Conference recognizes that challenge: we are at the center of Global Opportunities. But more than recognizing that reality, we see it as our mandate. There’s no other way but to seize these possibilities. We are now at the brink of living our dreams and imaginings. There are no excuses. This time, we have to make it work!

The horizon has opened up and all eyes are on the Philippines as the world’s new economic tiger. The ball’s on our court and the challenge is to leap forward. We can no longer afford to move at our current pace. Catch-up, leapfrog… that is what we should do. But to realize this, we need to defy limits, break free from our self-imposed restrictions that used to define who we are and what we can do.


As we usher in this golden year of the PMAP Annual Conference, we take stock of the rich mine of ideas in our sharing and learning community. Fifty years of thought leadership, advocacy and camaraderie. A story that in this milestone year turns into our quest for GOLD.

We EXPLORE the terrain as we paint the global economic landscape, create strategies, and search for talent. We MINE our collective experience as we extract issues, build consensus, and crystallize our advocacies. We REFINE our practice as we re-examine functional HR competencies. We SMELT the ore of our skills as we deep-dive into focused workshops to forge proficiency, mastery, and leadership. And we SHOWCASE best practices in HR and people management as we celebrate models and successes.



This is our promise:


  • three full days of learning
  • plenary sessions with topnotch global, regional, and local leaders
  • concurrent workshops and sessions on a wide array of HR topics encompassing various learning needs
  • advocacy and thought leadership sessions designed to crystallize PMAP's position on burning issues of the day
  • satellite conferences on HR focus areas of special interest and concern
  • structured networking sessions designed to maximize professional and personal network building
  • the biggest HR exposition ever!
  • a spectacular awards night
  • various fellowship events

This is the 50th PMAP Annual Conference!

Global Opportunities. Leaping Forward. Defying Limits.

INTRODUCING THE BAG WITH A TASK: BagsGo Reusable Bags


INTRODUCING THE BAG WITH A TASK: BagsGo Reusable Bags
 
My environmentalist friends especially Ate Dindin and Cathy will be grinning from ear to ear when they read this post. Let’s face it we are all scared of losing the only planet we have. Slowly, we are becoming more eco-aware, and we’re doing whatever small thing we can to save the Earth. This is exactly what this new, revolutionary reusable bag is trying to do: HELP YOU HELP SAVE MOTHER EARTH.
   
Aptly named BagsGo The bag with a task is created with lightweight RIPSTOP fabric used to make parachutes. I am happy when I learned that it is also tear and water resistant BagsGo is completely washable, durable and most importantly, 100% REUSABLE: BagsGo Reusable bags are the perfect alternative to plastic bags, and can be used in various ways. And for every BagsGo sold, a percentage goes to a foundation that supports ethical stewardship of the environment. So not only are you helping to save the Earth, you are also funding an organization to continue doing the same.
   
You are not only a good Filipino but a person with a task.  You can lead by example by simply using recyclable bags like BagsGo. Grab one now at the nearest Fully Booked outlet, Sesou Nature stores, or order online at zalora.com.

AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL MOTORCYCLE USERS


AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL MOTORCYCLE USERS

I'll be writing in Filipino because today, February 25, 2013, is the 27th year anniversary of the Edsa Revolution Day.

Napansin ko na lalong tumaas ang istatistika ng mga nadidisgrasya sa paggamit ng motorsiklo. Minsan ay may nadaanan pa ako na mga motor na durog durog dahil sa aksidente. Na labis na nakalulungkot.

Ilang bagay na napansin ng aking kaibigan na maaaring nagiging dahilan kung bakit nagkakaroon ng disgrasya ang mga motor:

1. Mahilig gumitgit sa mga sasakyan kahit wala sila sa tamang linya. Mamang nag momotorsiklo, may blind spot po na tinatawag kapag nagmamaneho ng sasakyan huwag kayong biglang susulpot na lang kasi po may posibilidad na baka hindi kayo mapansin ng driver ng sasakyan.

2. Karamihan ay nakaitim na super duper hindi nakikita pagka may kadiliman ang daan. Pwede rin siguro, kayong mag dikit ng sticker na glow in the dark o ng umiilaw na ilaw sa inyong helmet o likod na bahagi ng inyong jacket para maiwasan ang disgrasya.


3. Tumatawid ang ibang pasaway na motorista ng pahalang imbes na umikot sa tamang tawiran. Kung pwede lang po sana ay tumawid kayo sa tamang tawiran para hindi kayo madisgrasya o mkadisgrasya.

Nawa'y magsilbing aral ang suggestions ng aking kaibigan para maiwasan ang disgrasya. Be safe everyone.
