IMPORTANT: Migration to Texas CTE Resource Center

The Career and Technical Education (CTE), Texas Education Agency (TEA), contract for the maintenance of this website will end on August 31 st. 2017. Some CTE materials housed on this site may no longer be available after August.

The CTE Division, TEA, is currently conducting a project to evaluate the CTE resources on this site (and several other grantee sites) to determine which existing resources will migrate to a new Open Educational Resources (OER) site, the Texas CTE Resource Center. The new Texas CTE Resource Center site is expected to launch in early August 2017.

Nationally and locally developed rubrics are being used to ensure that migrating content is current, relevant, and focused on important CTE outcomes. With the implementation of the new Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Texas CTE courses, that become effective with the 2017-2018 school year, all resources will need review and alignment. As a result of this review, only selected existing materials will migrate to the new site.

Starting in the next school year, the TEA CTE team will reach out to local CTE specialists, teachers, counselors, and administrators for their help with identification of instructional and professional development resources that are high need, so that we have guidance for new content development and publishing in the Texas CTE Resource Center site.

Additional information will be forthcoming over the summer.

CTE RESOURCES ON THIS SITE:

  • 118 Courses
  • 611 Units
  • 2,141 Lessons
  • +
  • 3,800+ Teaching Resources
  • 80+ Professional Development Modules
  • Blogs, Promo. Materials, Career Awareness, Videos, Podcasts

WHAT IS CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION (CTE)?

CTE instruction aims at developing foundational skills, core workplace competencies, and specific skill competencies in various occupational areas. Internships, practicums, cooperative education, school-based enterprises, dual enrollment programs, and apprenticeships are a few venues that deliver CTE by providing meaningful opportunities for learners to apply their academic and technical skills.

Best Psychics & Mediums By Psychic Medium Researcher Bob Olson #psychic, #medium,

Welcome to the home of psychic medium researcher Bob Olson’s.

Genuine Legitimate Psychics Mediums List

On this site, author of Answers About The Afterlife and The Magic Mala. host of Afterlife TV, and former skeptic private investigator Bob Olson reveals to you a list of the most gifted psychics and mediums he has tested as legitimate! He calls it his “Genuine Legitimate Psychic Mediums List .” These are the psychics and mediums he has personally vetted using his 15-point test. Since 1999, Bob has tested hundreds of psychics and mediums from around the globe. Some readings were lacking, some good, and some were absolutely extraordinary. The people listed on this site fall into the extraordinary category.

There really are people who can communicate with your loved ones in spirit. They are known as “mediums” or “psychic mediums”. There also really are people who can intuitively read your energy, such as your aura or Universal energy. They are known as “psychics” or “intuitives.” Psychics help people to find clarity and direction in life, while mediums typically focus their readings on communicating with spirits or spirit guides. It’s not uncommon, however, that mediums sprinkle some psychic messages and psychics sprinkle some mediumship into their readings.

Bob Olson is a former private investigator who has researched psychics psychic mediums for over 15 years. He is also the author of Answers about the Afterlife: A Private Investigator’s 15-Year Research Unlocks the Mysteries of Life after Death and The Magic Mala: A Story That Changes Lives. Once a cynical skeptic, Bob met his first genuine and legitimate psychic medium in January of 1999. The medium conveyed messages from Bob’s deceased father and grandmother that were undeniably accurate, including details such as names, dates and information about his life that this stranger (the psychic medium) could never have known. This spirit-to-medium reading opened Bob’s skeptical mind to new possibilities, and he has consequently spent the past 14 years studying and investigating psychics, mediums and life after death. Bob Olson is the only psychic, medium afterlife expert who is not a psychic or medium himself. If you’re a talk show host or TV/documentary producer, visit the Info For Media page.

Bob Olson’s Pledge to You

“My pledge to you is that I have personally tested each psychic and medium on my “Genuine Legitimate Psychic Mediums List .” I have developed a 15-point test that allows me to determine if a psychic or medium is legitimately gifted while they give me a private reading. And while I cannot promise that you’ll have the same level of experience in your reading as I did in mine — since there are many subjective factors that determine a successful reading (like your personal reading preferences expectations) — I can promise that each psychic and medium listed has proven to me that they are extraordinarily gifted and has the ability to give you a reading so powerful that it can change your life.”

Bob Olson, BestPsychicMediums.com, BestPsychicDirectory.com AfterlifeTV.com

The Intent Behind Bob s Work

“My mission on this site, Best Psychic Mediums, is to help you locate legitimately gifted psychics and mediums. I want you to experience the blessing of communicating with your deceased loved ones, which is the role of mediums. And when your own intuitive connection seems clouded, I want to safely lead you to insightful readings that give you the direction you need, which is the role of psychics.

“I’m motivated by the idea of helping people feel the inner peace that comes with “knowing” we survive death. I want to comfort the grieving by helping them connect with their loved ones in spirit, and to help them know this connection is always there. I want everyone to know–not just believe–that death is not to be feared, but rather, the spiritual realm is our true home, which is free of all human suffering and filled only with the love joy of the divine.”

Bob Olson, Psychic Medium Researcher
Afterlife Investigator since 1999

Important Scam Notice

People need to be careful of greedy scam artists who are pretending to be psychics or mediums. These frauds are good at deceiving people, especially those grieving and desperate to make contact with their deceased loved ones. Read More

Swollen Face: 27 Causes, Photos, Treatments #swollen #pimple #on #face

What’s Causing My Face to Swell?

Sometimes you may wake up with a swollen, puffy face. This may happen as a result of pressure being placed on the face while sleeping. However, a swollen, puffy face can also arise from a facial injury or indicate an underlying medical condition. Facial. Read more

Sometimes you may wake up with a swollen, puffy face. This may happen as a result of pressure being placed on the face while sleeping. However, a swollen, puffy face can also arise from a facial injury or indicate an underlying medical condition.

Facial swelling doesn’t just include the face, but can also affect the neck or throat. If there are no injuries to the face, facial swelling can indicate a medical emergency. In most cases, a medical professional should treat facial swelling.

What causes facial swelling?

Facial swelling can be caused by both minor and major medical conditions. Many causes are easily treatable. However, some are severe and require immediate medical attention. Common causes of facial swelling include:

  • allergic reaction
  • eye infection (such as conjunctivitis)
  • surgery
  • side effect of medication
  • cellulitis (bacterial infection of the skin of face)
  • sinusitis
  • hormonal disturbance (such as thyroid diseases)
  • sty
  • abscess

Recognizing a medical emergency

A swollen face due to an allergic reaction may be accompanied by other symptoms. These are the symptoms of anaphylaxis (serious allergic reaction). Proper medical treatment must be administered immediately to prevent the reaction from turning into anaphylactic shock, which can be lethal.

Symptoms of anaphylaxis and anaphylactic shock include:

  • swollen mouth and throat
  • difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • hives or rash
  • swelling of the face or limbs
  • anxiety or confusion
  • coughing or wheezing
  • dizziness or lightheadedness
  • nasal congestion
  • palpitations and irregular heartbeat
  • slurred speech

If you experience any symptoms of anaphylaxis, call 911 immediately.

Symptoms of shock may set in quickly. These symptoms include:

  • rapid breathing
  • rapid heart rate
  • weak pulse
  • low blood pressure

In severe cases, respiratory or cardiac arrests may occur.

Common causes for an allergic reaction are allergens such as:

Recognizing facial swelling

Call 911 immediately if you’ve eaten foods that you’re allergic to, have been exposed to a known allergen, or have been stung by a venomous insect or reptile.

Don’t wait for the symptoms of anaphylaxis to set in. These symptoms may not occur right away — although, they do in most cases.

Along with facial swelling, other symptoms may occur, including:

  • hives or rash
  • itching
  • nasal congestion
  • watery eyes
  • dizziness
  • diarrhea
  • chest discomfort
  • stomach discomfort
  • weakness
  • swelling of surrounding areas

Relieving the swelling

See your doctor immediately if you have facial swelling. If a venomous bee sting caused the swelling, remove the stinger immediately. Don’t use tweezers to remove the stinger — tweezers can pinch the stinger, causing it to release more venom.

Instead, use a playing card: Press down on the skin in front of the stinger and gently move the card towards the stinger. Then scoop the stinger up from the skin.

Infection

If the swelling was caused by an infection in the eyes, nose, or mouth, you will likely be prescribed antibiotics to clear the infection. If an abscess is present, the doctor may cut open the abscess and drain it. The open area will then be closed in with packing material to keep it from becoming infected and reoccurring.

Soothing a rash

A rash can be soothed with over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or ointment. Using a cool compress also can soothe the itch.

Other causes such as fluid retention and underlying medical conditions will be treated by a doctor accordingly.

Homecare treatment options

Prevent facial swelling by avoiding known allergens. Read ingredient labels and ask your waiter what ingredients are in the dishes you order. If you have a known allergy that can cause anaphylaxis and have been prescribed epinephrine medication (Epi-Pen), be sure to carry it with you. This medication is used to counteract a severe allergic reaction and can prevent facial swelling.

If you had an allergic reaction to medication, avoid taking that medication again. Notify your doctor of any reactions you’ve encountered after taking medication or eating certain foods.

  • We won’t know which Super Bowl commercials won the YouTube Ad Blitz. but digital marketers can still share some eye-popping video statistics and a couple of compelling Super Bowl ads with their more traditional colleagues when they gather around the office water cooler and chat about last night’s Big Game.
  • In real life, 82,586 football fans watched yesterday’s official NFL Super Bowl XLVIII for two halves at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Meanwhile, in a parallel universe, more than 100 million football fans watched Super Bowl 2014 for almost 3.5 hours in four quarters plus a half time on the Fox broadcast television network.
  • So, why would some digital marketers want to tip their hand before the big game?

    Business Card Size

    Is there an ideal business card size?

    When considering everything you need to promote your company, details are important. Even down to what’s the best business card size?

    When it comes to business cards, size counts

    A business card is a marketing piece and it needs to be durable, feel good to touch and be stored where you want it to be. If it’s in the wallet or cardholder of a potential client, it needs to be a standard size. If you want to be a bit more flexible and creative, it can be long and thin or big and bold.

    But mostly, a standard business card size is:

    • 85 mm wide by 55 mm in height. This fits easily in any wallet or cardholder.
    • Easily readable. The important information – your company name, your name and contact details should fit in a space that’s uncluttered and easy to find.
    • Is properly trimmed to ensure it fits where it’s tailored to be stored.

    If you don’t absolutely need your card to fit in a wallet but want to stand out from your competition you’re only limited by your imagination. Or, the imagination of your local Snap Centre .

    There, you’ll find business card specialists who know exactly what size, style and finish is perfect for your company. Our graphic designers can help you capture the essence of your business, while our print specialists will ensure you are delivered a professional finished product.

    Liability Insurance Can Help Protect Your Business from the Unknown

    With the day-to-day uncertainties of business management, liability insurance is something you cannot do without. Accidents happen – on site, off site, with employees and with customers – no matter how much you’ve planned. It is a critical part of any insurance portfolio, regardless of your industry.

    Liability insurance can help cover medical expenses, attorney fees and damages you are legally responsible for.

    Standard Business Card Dimensions

    Standard dimensions of business cards is a 3.5 x 2 inches, but in spite of small size,e nsure that graphics is sharp, it means that your designer has to prepare image resolution at least 300 dpi or better, to use the vector design, which can then be magnified to higher dimensions, without loss of quality.

    Do not let your impression of your company being broken only
    because apparently frivolous business cards.

    Business cards are printed in different sizes, visual effects, methods of printing, prices and other details that differed from culture to culture.In general, business cards are printed in the stocksof 350 g / m² density, 45 kg (100 lb) weight. But the best quality business cards are prepared without full-color photos and business cards were usually printed using the so-called spot colors on sheed-fed offest printing processes.
    For example, the process of the two colors is that it is enough that the logo on business cards is one color and the type of business cards and other colors. Of course, if necessary, add more of these spot colors.
    Before digital printing was quite expensive, but now a lot cheaper and more effective, using modern technology business card printing in color has never been easier.
    Monochrome card or cards on which there is more than one color, the printed sheet-fed processes, however, for the processes they use light blue, magenta, yellow and black, and it is called the process of printing with four colors.

    As for the dimensions of the card we have certain standards in certain countries. In Italy, the Netherlands, Great Britain, France, Slovenia, Germany, Austria, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium and Ireland are using 85 55 (mm) dimensions or aspect ratio Aspect ratio is the so-called 1.545.
    In Japan, the dimensions are 91 55 and Aspect ratio is 1655. In Hong Kong, China and Singapore have a 90 54 Aspect ratio is 1.667.
    Australia, Norway, Vietnam, Sweden, Denmark, Taiwan and New Zealand have the dimensions of 90 55 Aspect Ratio and 1.636.
    Finally, Croatia, Serbia, Finland, Israel, Kazakhstan, Russia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine, Mexico, Argentina They have dimensions of 90 50, and aspect ratio 1.8.
    These were the basic parameters for the listed countries, these dimensions are largely similar, but again everyone has their own standards.

    Although business cards are now used less as the technology progresses, all usually give away CDs, USB sticks on which all relevant information about them and also their work, USB sticks and mini discs are convenient to them, plus it can also put a print so that is the reason why people are becoming more and more used. But again, the business card has its advantages, because its dimensions are designed to fit in a purse and everything inside pocket, so we believe it will never pass their time.





    Get your Police Report for DUI California #dui #in #california #first #offense


    #

    After you are arrested for a DUI in California. the police officer prepares a written arrest report about you that is then forwarded to the Prosecutor’s office and then the court. This police report is also usually forwarded to the DMV.

    It is very important that you read this report to see what the officer is saying about you and to see what your breath tests or blood test results are.

    Information in your Police Report

    In this police report. you will find out :-

    • Why the officer stopped you
    • How was your driving in the officer’s opinion
    • What your objective symptoms were (e.g. alcohol on breath, red, watery eyes, slurred speech, poor coordination, etc.)
    • How did you do on the field sobriety tests
    • Your answers to most of the police officer’s questions regarding for example how much you had to drink and when and where you were coming from etc.
    • Your breath test results and the serial number of the breath machine you blew into (knowing the serial number of the machine allows you to check the accuracy and maintenance history of the machine you blew into)
    • Your blood test results if you took one
    • Etc.

    Often, the police report contains biased opinions, omits information that is helpful to you and will exaggerate other information to make you look bad in the eyes of the prosecutor.

    How to get a copy of your Police Report (DUI Arrest Report)

    The Police Report is available on your first court date. This court date is listed at the bottom of the ticket you were given. If you request a DMV hearing. you can request the DMV to send the Police Report to you approximately 10 days before the DMV Hearing.

    Accident Report

    It is usually difficult to get your police report from the police before your court date. However, if you were involved in an accident and California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers arrested you, you can obtain your accident report from the CHP station listed on the bottom of your pink temporary license that was given to you.

    Remember record what the Police Officer did said to you

    It is important for you to remember and take notes of what the officer said and did to you, and preserve any other evidence that helps you:-

    • Did the officer tell you why were you pulled over?
    • Were there any witnesses to your arrest and were there witnesses to your drinking?
    • Was an officer with you for the 15 minutes right before you blew into the breath machine at the police station, closely observing you?
    • Did you vomit, burp, smoke, or drink anything just before blowing into the breath machine?
    • Did the officer do or say anything unusual or inappropriate?
    • Was the officer young and inexperienced and being trained by an older officer?
    • Did you take any photos of anything that supports your side of the story?

    Note and write down all potential evidence that can help you in court and for the DMV hearing.

    Social CRM Software

    Buyer’s Guide

    Social media provides businesses with an unprecedented level of access to their customers. And with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others only growing in popularity, most businesses now recognize the value of engaging people through these platforms. This may involve prospecting (using paid ads or relevant content to attract new customers or business partners), recruiting new employees, announcing new products or sales or responding to customer satisfaction issues in a public forum.

    But a trend that s even more new is integration between these platforms and customer relationship management (CRM). As critical as CRM is to a company s sales and customer service experience, businesses that fail to integrate this with their social media marketing will soon find themselves behind the curve.

    This guide is designed to help buyers in the very new market of social CRM software identify the capabilities they ll need and make the right decision. Here s what we ll cover:

    What Is Social CRM Software?

    Social CRM involves the integration between customer relationship management software and social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or others. At the heart of it is an ability to manage the large number and range of interactions for which a business might want to use social media. To that end, features often include:

    There are a number of programs that scour the Web or particular social media platforms to find instances of your brand name being mentioned or references to problems that your product solves. Depending on your strategy and the other capabilities of the social analytics software you choose, this could be delivered to you with custom analytics (that, for example, mine for customer sentiment rather than social interaction) or be distributed in a way that allows you to respond appropriately.

    There are a number of programs that scour the Web or particular social media platforms to find instances of your brand name being mentioned or references to problems that your product solves. Depending on your strategy and the other capabilities of the social analytics software you choose, this could be delivered to you with custom analytics (that, for example, mine for customer sentiment rather than social interaction) or be distributed in a way that allows you to respond appropriately.

    Some solutions provide a way to respond automatically to social media cues, allowing you to retweet messages or provide stock responses to commonly asked questions with a minimum of personnel time.

    For companies with multiple people responding to messages, the system needs to be able to route messages to the appropriate person within the organization, and/or to open and close customer service issues that come through this channel.

    The ability to organize new followers into demographics allows for much more efficient sales and marketing tactics. This application category would also include the ability to monitor sharing/subscription statistics on emails and blogs.

    If your strategy requires translating followers into contactable leads, integration with other contact management tools will be a vital part of your social solution.

    The benefits of social media CRM should be obvious: it allows you to track and manage data at unprecedented levels of detail, giving you the opportunity to engage your customers in ways you never would have been able to before. It s worth noting, however, that social CRM is about much more than the software solution itself. For most companies the benefits will only be realized with a well-conceived customer relationship management program already in place. Otherwise, you run the risk of coming across like a five-year-old driving a Ferrari very flashy, but without the ability to drive your company where it needs to go.

    What Type of Buyer Are You?

    The entry cost for social CRM tools has never been lower. Many programs offer a free solution for smaller users, and in a field that s leading the software industry in terms of Web-based solutions, up-front costs are often nil.

    That being said, there are some differences in buyers. The two main types are:

    Enterprise buyers. If you ve invested in or are considering a company-wide CRM product with contact management, marketing automation and/or help desk management or if you re looking for additional industry-specific software (e.g. field service management. contract management etc.), then seamless integration is likely more important than specific features. For this, you ll want a CRM product with social capabilities, rather than something with a dedicated focus in the social media space.

    Best-of-breed buyers. As a rule, smaller businesses tend to be less focused on enterprise-wide application and more focused on maximum effectiveness at particular activities. If this is the case, focus on the features as you make your purchasing decisions. Many social media management tools straddle the space between social media and CRM, so concentrating on the functions you need can yield you a product that delivers exceptional functionality for a very reasonable outlay.

    Market Trends to Understand

    As you do a comparison of the best social customer relationship management software for your needs, keep these trends in mind. How your vendor fits with these trends could have a big impact on their viability.

    • All CRM is social. Given how essential this functionality is going to be in the future, it s possible that almost every CRM product is going to offer social capabilities within the next few years. The only question is the focus, how it fits in with your company and what its features are compared to the other tools on the market.
    • Free software. Social media as a category is really leading the way in terms of free ad-funded products, and social CRM is no exception. The more features you need, the more likely you ll have to upgrade to a pro subscription, but for basic CRM tools there s a chance you may be able to find a free solution.
    • Platform as a Service (PaaS). An outgrowth of Software as a Service, PaaS allows organizations to develop apps in the cloud. As social CRM continues to grow, expect PaaS-based apps to grow with it.

    DUI Alcohol & Drug Education Programs

    California

    Last updated: November 2016

    When you are convicted of a DUI offense in California, the court may order you to complete an Alcohol and Drug Education and Counseling program provided by a state-licensed service provider .

    To enroll in one of these programs, you must be referred, either by the court or the DMV.

    Which DUI program must you complete?

    There are several levels of DUI education programs available. You will have to take a class which may be as short as 12 hours if you are a first-time offender with a low blood alcohol content, or as high as 30 months if you are a repeat offender. The length of the program depends on whether this is your first, second, third or fourth DUI offense within a 10-year period. The 10-year time period begins on your arrest date.

    How long is a DUI on your record in California?

    WARNING – presently a DUI conviction will be on your record for 10 years starting from your arrest date.
    However, there are efforts in the California legislature to make a DUI stay on your record for a lifetime and to be used against you for your whole life. This means if you got a DUI 20 years ago and get arrested for another DUI it will be your second DUI.
    Expect the worse and expect the California DUI laws to change in the future and make your DUI stay on your record for 15 years or longer if not for a lifetime.

    COSTS IN CALIFORNIA

    • First-Time Offenders – three-month, 30-hour alcohol and drug education and counseling program costs approximately $600.
    • Second Time Offender 18 month DUI class (SB 38) – cost is approximately $1,800 – $1,900.
    • 6 month DUI Class (AB 762) – this class is sometimes required for a first time offender if breath test or blood test results come back between .15 and .19 – approximate cost $800-$900.
    • 9 month DUI class (AB1353) – this class is required for first time offender if they refused to take a breath or blood test or their results were over .20 – approximate cost $1,200.

    • 78 hours of group counseling
    • 12 hours of alcohol and drug education
    • 120-300 hours of community service
    • and regular individual interviews.

    Law is a fundamental business discipline. Its study allows you to develop a wider perspective on both the business and regulatory landscape and specialised expertise that will not only enrich your business career but can also lay the foundations for successful postgraduate studies in law.

    On this page

    Introduction

    A major in Business Law will provide you with a solid understanding of the Australian legal system and how it impacts on business and commercial transactions. The units studied give detailed consideration to the law relating to contract, torts, corporations, agency, partnership, fiduciary obligations, taxation, banking, finance, intellectual property, competition, consumer protection and international trade.

    Course description, features and facilities

    The Business Law major focuses on the fundamental relationship between law and business and is ideal for those planning careers in a wide range of business areas including professional accounting, business management, international trade and industrial relations.

    It will equip you with important skills in teamwork and in written and oral communication as well as high-level analytical, problem solving and research skills. You will learn how to recognise, analyse and, where possible, avoid many of the legal problems that can arise in the course of common business transactions. Further, and perhaps more importantly, where such avoidance is not possible, you will acquire knowledge and skills that will empower you to intelligently request, understand and act on legal services and advice. These are vital business skills that are relevant not just to business in the context of the Australian legal system but also in the context of the legal systems of the many other ‘common law’ countries around the world. Thus, as the accountability and personal liability of professionals, business managers and public servants continues to grow, a strong grounding in business law is increasingly being seen as an attractive attribute for potential employers both nationally and internationally.

    All units in this major are taught by the full time academic staff of Western Australia’s leading Law School so students will not only obtain exposure to some of this state’s leading academic lawyers they will also have the opportunity to make use of the UWA Law Schools’ state-of-the-art libraries and research facilities.The fields of study covered in this major can also be taken as option units in first or second year outside of this major.

    Student profile Jessica Vu

    Studying Business Law has allowed me to learn about commercial businesses – how they run, how they’re structured, and more importantly how the laws affect them, both within Australia and internationally. It has been a great introduction to law, with the real life case studies and oral presentations in class allowing me to develop my writing and presentation skills.

    Not only has the major been an interesting and fulfilling part of my degree, but I’ve made so many friends from taking the same classes with like-minded people. Making connections with people in the same field has helped not only my personal development, but possibly future career developments as well.

    Structure

    UWA’s streamlined course structure allows you to pursue studies in a wide range of areas and to take one or two majors in your degree. Your second major can be from a similar field to your first (degree-specific) major, or from a different area or degree entirely.

    As well as the units specified in your major, you will study broadening units outside your main area of study and may be able to take a number of elective subjects as well.

    You can explore the structure of this major in detail in the University Handbooks.

    Business Analyst, IT in Durham:

    “Be Happy with Ambiguity & Leading from “Behind-the-Scenes””

    People leverage a BA to help make things make sense. It’s still a very new role to many companies and firms and parts of it are very meta. Often while you are eliciting, defining, and documenting requirements and processes, you will be simultaneously demonstrating the process for doing so and standardizing it. Developers, Project Managers, Tech Leads, UX & Design and Business stakeholders are not always going to know where in the Venn diagram your contributions end that their’s begin and vice versa. Job postings will often ask to be a project manager, a coder, a designer, a financial analyst, a “savior” of all things project and business related and you will have figure out (much like practicing analysis on the job) “is what they say they want, what they really need?” It’s a rewarding job if you like solving problems, helping others, and serving something larger than yourself, but it’s a “behind-the-scenes” gig so the ability to be happy with your invisible leadership is paramount.

    8 Reasons Not to Get a Business Degree

    Last Updated Jan 24, 2011 5:46 PM EST

    Business degrees are hot, but you might want to reconsider your decision. Here are eight reasons why you should not major in business :

    1. Business majors don’t learn much in business school.

    That’s one of the bombshell conclusions of Academically Adrift . a new blockbuster bestseller that suggests that 45% of college students don’t learn much of anything in their first two years of college, while more than one out of three students graduate with no improvement in writing and analytical skills.

    Among the students who learn the least in college are social work, education and business majors . In contrast, the researchers found that students majoring in the humanities, social sciences, hard sciences and math do relatively well.

    2. You won’t make as much money as you think.

    When PayScale looked at starting and mid-career salaries of college graduates in dozens of college majors . business came in as the 56th best-paying college degree. It fared worse than such “impractical” college degrees as philosophy . history and American studies .

    3. The job market is crawling with business majors.

    It’s hard to stand out from the crowd when more than one out of every five new college grads is a business major . What you’re telegraphing when you major in business is that you want to make money, but do you have what it takes to some day earn that corner office?

    4. Your quality of life could suck.

    Prominent labor economists examined what Harvard Business School grads were doing 15 years after graduating and certain business majors were having a difficult time juggling career and home life. Here’s a post that I wrote about the study: The Perils of Majoring in Business .

    5. Majoring in business could hurt your MBA chances.

    Not having an undergrad business degree can actually help when applying to MBA programs . At some MBA programs less than 25% of their students possess undergrad business degrees. One study documented that business undergrads actually performed worse in MBA programs than non-business majors.

    6. You don’t need a business degree to work in business.

    You’re kidding yourself if you think a business degree gives you the skills to work in the corporate world.

    A employer survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers indicates that workplaces most value these three skills that you are usually more likely to find with a liberal arts eduction:

    • Communication skills.
    • Analytic skills.
    • Teamwork skills.

    What’s more, a survey by the Association of American Colleges and Universities found that 89% of surveyed employees said they want college students to pursue a liberal arts education.

    7. You can make more money with an economics degree.

    On PayScale’s list of the highest paying college majors, economics came in No. 10. Engineering majors dominated the rest of the top-paying degrees. Economics is one of the liberal arts so you are more likely to learn how to write and think in college, which is what employers covet in their workers.

    Illustrious econ majors include Warren Buffettt, Steve Ballmer, Ted Turner, Steve Fossett, Henry Kravis, Diane von Furstenberg, Esther Dyson, Bill Belichick and Mick Jagger

    8. Your parents want you to major in business.

    Don’t be a wuss and major in business because your parents are nagging you. If you’re pressured into majoring in business or any other major, studies show that you’ll be less likely to succeed professionally AND financially.

    Spotlight: Death Valley National Park

    Every imaginable shade of gold–from orange to apricot to school-bus yellow–is visible in the wrinkled Golden Canyon cliffs, whose folded and eroded layers glow at sunrise and sunset. Pick your favourite perspective: Drive to Zabriskie Point and survey the scene from on high, or see the vibrant beauty up close by hiking in Golden Canyon. For casual sightseers, Zabriskie Point (off Hwy. 190) offers a stunning view of the multi-hued badlands from a 100-yard-long paved trail.

    “It’s one of the park’s most photographed viewpoints and a busy spot at sunset.”

    It’s one of the park’s most photographed viewpoints and a busy spot at sunset. The Golden Canyon hike starts from the opposite side (off Badwater Road, 3.5 miles/5.6 km southeast of the visitor center). It’s a moderate out-and-back of about two miles, which can be extended into 5.5-mile/9-km loop. From the parking area, the trail heads gently uphill through soft canyon walls colourfully banded in yellow, beige, and cream, which signifies the presence of different minerals. Be sure to go the extra few steps to Red Cathedral, a towering cliff coloured red by the weathering of iron-rich rocks.

    4. San Francisco Bay Area

    On the western oceanfront of Northern California, at the state’s distinctive bend along the coast, lies this breathtaking region. It’s framed by an unforgettable gateway—the iconic Golden Gate Bridge—spanning the mouth of San Francisco Bay. Explore diverse cities, picturesque hamlets, family-friendly beaches, coastal parklands, and wine country, including Napa and Sonoma wine country, 1½ hours north of San Francisco.

    9. Inland Empire

    This densely populated Southern California region has surprising alpine getaways, like Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead, in the impressive San Bernardino Range. On the region’s sunny east side, explore the inviting Temecula Valley wine region. The university town of Riverside is the region’s largest city. San Bernardino, the second largest city, has museums and impressive shopping, while Fontana has NASCAR racing.

    Saratoga CoWorks offers professionals state-of-the-art shared workspace

    SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY One year after opening its doors, Saratoga CoWorks is enjoying great success thanks to the growing popularity of the coworking concept.

    Located in the Regent Springs Building (formerly the Skidmore College Theater at 153 Regent Street), Saratoga CoWorks offers a fully-equipped communal workspace where independent business professionals, entrepreneurs, and freelancers can rent workspace by the day or monthly.

    Completely renovated prior to opening in early 2014, Saratoga CoWorks was designed by owners Dorothy Rogers-Bullis and Daniel Bullis (who also own drb Business Interiors) using top-quality, ergonomic office furniture from Knoll, HON, Artopex, National, SitOnIt, and ERG.

    The space boasts state-of-the-art technology including enterprise-class Wi-Fi, and private conference and meeting rooms equipped with projectors and Apple TVs. With whiteboard walls, a kitchenette, natural light, personal storage space, and free on-street parking, Saratoga CoWorks offers independent workers the comforts of home with the amenities of a traditional office.

    Meeting the demand for coworking space

    As more companies allow employees to telecommute, and an increasing number of people are working independently from home, the desire for coworking facilities has grown. Many of these work-from-home professionals have realized that the isolation of their home office is not all it is cracked up to be, and achieving a work-life balance is challenging when the lines between home and work become blurred. These are often the people who turn to a coworking setup.

    “Coworking involves a shared work environment where independent professionals and entrepreneurs can collaborate and flourish,” said Dorothy Rogers-Bullis. “We designed Saratoga CoWorks to encourage interaction among the diverse individuals who utilize this workspace and to offer an infrastructure for member participation and growth.”

    A distinctive shared work environment

    With its top-of-the-line furniture and electronic equipment, Saratoga CoWorks is unlike any other shared workspace in the area.

    “We saw an unmet need for a well-designed, professional coworking space in Saratoga Springs,” continued Rogers-Bullis. “While most traditional offices focus on private workspaces, we wanted to create a unique facility with open spaces for open minds–where positive, creative energy could flow freely.”

    “Saratoga CoWorks offers the flexibility to use the facility as much or as little as needed,” notes Daniel Bullis. “Monthly members have 24/7 access to the space, but we also offer daily rates for people who may be in town temporarily or have a one-day need for a meeting space for a group presentation or work session.”

    The space offers benefits to start-ups as well as more established businesses.

    “For new companies that are just getting started, Saratoga CoWorks provides them with a professional appearance, as well as a physical office address,” continued Bullis. “And for the seasoned company, we simplify the process of leasing and maintaining office space; the monthly membership includes all utilities and amenities.”

    Connect, compose, collaborate

    Saratoga CoWorks offers an array of packages and membership options. Rates start at $25 per day, and monthly memberships range from $250 to $350. For more information or to schedule a tour of Saratoga CoWorks, please call Dorothy Rogers-Bullis at 518-306-5233, or visit www.saratogacoworks.com.

    Psychic Tests – Psychic and Medium Experiences #test, #tests, #psychic, #psychics, #medium,

    Psychic Tests

    The following are psychic tests and games designed to measure your degree of psychic abilities (or spiritual gifts) or to be used as tools to develop your psychic talents. However, these tests will not provide you the ultimate answer about whether if you’re psychic or not, so please, don’t send us emails about the results, since some are rather subjective.

    If you’re psychic (more than your average person, that is), you should know it. These are for entertainment purposes, not to be taken so seriously. They may help you confirm what you already know, but real life is the only real test. No reproduction of any part without permission.

    Online Tarot Reading

    Tarot cards are a highly symbolic deck of cards consisting of 22 Major Arcana cards, and 56 Minor Arcana cards. Arcana means secrets or mysteries, which is why the ability to decipher the symbols is half the gift of the translator.

    Zener Cards

    Zener Cards were used by the famous parapsychologist J.B. Rhine in his studies of ESP and have now become the standard for such extra sensorial tests. There are some variations of the Zener cards test, some are using a closed deck of cards (5 groups of each 5 cards) or open deck (each cards are randomly selected from a deck shuffled at each turns). The following test is an open deck, since a card is randomly generated from a shuffled deck every time.

    Remote Viewing with a Picture

    Remote viewing differentiates itself from other psychic abilities in that it follows a set of protocols. Remote viewing was originally termed by parties associated with labs and universities and they wanted a controlled environment using strict protocols and procedures. They wanted it to take this ability from back alley psychic shops to procedural processes in controlled conditions. One example is that remote viewing uses a blind target or items to psychically view.

    Telekinesis Test

    This is a simple telekinesis test inspired by coin tossing contests, it consists of an algorithm that will randomly generate zeroes and ones, instead of heads or tails. Mathematical laws dictate that over a certain period of time, the average between the number of 0s and 1s should be 50% / 50%, and the longer the time period, the closer the results should be to this figure. If someone tried to telekinetically influence the outcome of those coin flippings, we could possibly calculate his telekinesis ability by observing how far the results are from the statistical average.

    Guess the Word Quizz

    The following psychic test is not based on any scientific or academic research but it can help determine if you have some talents towards remote viewing (or simply guessing) a word rather than a picture, as some people may have greater literal talent than visual. We added it mostly for fun.

    Guess the Random Number

    The following psychic test is not based on any scientific or academic research either but it can help determine if you have some ESP talents towards guessing a number. The number is between 0 and 9. Like in quizz shows or puzzles, the number is displayed by an asterisk. As in the Zener Cards test, the higher the number of sessions, the more meaningful the total score is.

    ESP Test

    Some people know things before they are going to happen. They can sense who is on the phone, what someone will say, or some of their dreams will come true. These people are known as psychics. We all have some extra sensory ability and this test will let you know how much ESP you possess!

    Sensitivity Test

    This test is just to see where you are at, in terms of how sensitive you are to subtle perceptions and energy. People with a high level of sensitivity are usually natural psychics because that’s what being psychic is all about: the ability to pick up subtle information not normally detectible by the other five senses. This information is all around us. It’s just a matter of who in sensitive enough to pick it up. This is similar to low level sound frequencies that humans can’t hear, but dogs and other animals can pick up perfectly. There are of course exceptions. Natural psychics do exist who possess open feelers that have done little to no work to develop them and were just born that way.

    Denver Business Journal warns some renewal notices aren t legit

    The Denver Business Journal has alerted subscribers that they have no connection with United Publishers Network, a company sending out renewal notices for subscriptions that have not expired.

    They are not authorized to offer our subscriptions. If you received one of these notices or phone calls, we suggest you ignore it, a message left on subscribers phones said Monday morning.

    United Publishers Network is accused of improperly soliciting subscription renewals for magazines and newspapers, including the Denver Business Journal and other publications in the Charlotte, N.C.- based American City Business Journals newspaper chain.

    ACBJ is attempting to determine how United Publishers Network obtained its subscriber list.

    American City Business Journals parent company has our in-house counsel doing the due diligence right now to figure out exactly what we need to do to get these guys to stop, Denver Business Journal publisher Pete Casillas said, adding that UPN s solicitation is more or less a scam. In the meantime, our position has been to inform our subscribers that these folks are out there and to disregard their notes.

    We do know that no credit-card information has been compromised, he said.

    In the past three years, the Better Business Bureau has received 875 complaints against United Publishers Network, including 153 problems with the product/service and 371 billing/collection issues.

    Carol Garton, vice president of marketing for the Better Business Bureau Denver/Boulder, said that United Publishers Network has an F rating from the BBB.

    Consumers allege they receive bills from this company for magazines they currently have subscriptions for, implying it is time for renewal, Garton said. However, consumers claim the subscriptions are not expired, nor did they originally order through this company.

    She said consumers alleged that United Publishers Network s renewal advertisement states it has the lowest renewal fee, but subscribers find that renewing directly through the publisher costs less. They also claim that the company charges a $20 processing fee to cancel renewals.

    Garton said people who are solicited by phone or letter should always call the Business Journal they are working with and check to see what they received is an actual bill.

    The Denver Business Journal said legitimate renewal notices and subscription offers will always display an official logo and ask that payments be sent to the company s service center in Charlotte. People with questions about their subscriptions can call 866-853-3661.

    United Publishers Network did not respond to a request for comment.

    How to Get the Cheaper EpiPen Alternative – Consumer Reports #epipen, #epipen

    How to Get the Cheaper EpiPen Alternative

    Consumer outrage over EpiPen’s $600 price tag reached a fever pitch yesterday, prompting action from Congress members, including Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who issued a letter to its manufacturer, Mylan, demanding that the company lower the price of the life-saving device.

    In a separate letter, Iowa Senator Charles Grassley, citing “consumer concerns,” asked the company to provide justification for the price increase—more than 400 percent since 2007—by no later than September 6, 2016. And Senators Susan Collins and Claire McCaskill of the Senate Special Aging Committee, in a letter today to Mylan requested an explanation and a briefing on EpiPen pricing within two weeks.

    We are concerned that these drastic price increases could have a serious effect on the health and well-being of every day Americans, the senators wrote. Even the American Medical Association jumped in and released a statement today urging Mylan to lower the cost.

    EpiPen is an auto-injector syringe filled with an inexpensive drug called epinephrine. It treats allergic reactions so severe that some people can’t breathe, a condition known as anaphylaxis.

    Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a low-cost alternative to the EpiPen, we recently recommended generic Adrenaclick, also referred to as an epinephrine auto-injector. Using a GoodRx coupon, you could get it for as low as $140 at Walmart or $205 at Rite-Aid. You might have heard its hard to get, but here’s how to procure it.

    Ask Your Doctor for an Epinephrine Auto-Injector Prescription

    In most states, to get the low-cost, EpiPen alternative, you can’t use a prescription for EpiPen from your doctor. That’s because pharmacists at your drugstore likely won’t be able to automatically substitute the low-cost version if your prescription is written for EpiPen. Instead, ask your doctor to write a prescription for an epinephrine auto-injector or generic Adrenaclick.

    That’s what Adrienne Balkany of Austin, Texas, did after her out-of-pocket cost for EpiPen shot up to $400 two years ago. Balkany carries emergency epinephrine due to a severe allergy to bee stings. Seeking an alternative to EpiPen, she came across a mention of generic Adrenaclick online, and after finding that she’d only have a $60 co-pay after insurance, her doctor eventually switched her prescription to the generic. But doing so required some persistence on her part and several discussions with her doctor, says Balkany. “The hardest part of switching was convincing my doctor to write the prescription because he had never heard of the drug.”

    Since Mylan purchased EpiPen in 2007, it poured billions of dollars into a robust marketing campaign aimed at making EpiPen a household name. Last year, doctors wrote 3.6 million prescriptions for EpiPen and EpiPen Jr, according to healthcare data company IMS Health—7 percent more than in 2014. Given EpiPen’s reputation as the leading treatment for life-threatening anaphylaxis, coupled with last year’s recall of its main competitor, Auvi Q, and the otherwise low profile of alternative options, skepticism about non-EpiPen auto-injectors from consumers and doctors alike is not all that surprising. But while EpiPen and generic Adrenaclick are not the same device or delivery system, they both contain the drug epinephrine in the same dosage.

    The good news is that pharmacists in more than a dozen states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Vermont, and Washington can fill an EpiPen prescription with generic Adrenaclick—without returning to their physician for a new prescription, according to the drug’s manufacturer, Impax Laboratories.

    NWS JetStream – Introduction to Doppler Radar #weather, #local #weather #forecast, #local


    #

    The most effective tool to detect precipitation is radar. Radar, which stands for RA dio D etection A nd R anging, has been utilized to detect precipitation, and especially thunderstorms, since the 1940’s. Radar enhancements have enabled NWS forecasters to examine storms with more precision.

    The radar used by the National Weather Service is called the WSR-88D, which stands for Weather Surveillance Radar – 1988 Doppler (the prototype radar was built in 1988). As its name suggests, the WSR-88D is a Doppler radar, meaning it can detect motions toward or away from the radar as well as the location of precipitation areas.

    This ability to detect motion has greatly improved the meteorologist’s ability to peer inside thunderstorms and determine if there is rotation in the cloud, often a precursor to the development of tornadoes.

    There are 155 WSR-88D Doppler radar in the nation, including the U.S. Territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, operated by the National Weather Service and the Department of Defense.

    Business Formal Attire

    A business formal dress code enhances the professional image of your workplace environment and your personal brand. This page provides style guidelines for on-campus activities where this dress code is required. The gallery and descriptions on this page help define “business formal.”

    Clothing should be crisp, neat, pressed and never wrinkled, to project a professional, business formal image. Torn, dirty, and unmatched clothing is unacceptable.

    The standard dress code in a business formal environment is a full matching business suit, including a jacket and dress pants or a dress skirt. The darker the suit, the more formal!

    In addition to matching pants and jacket, men should wear a button-up collared shirt, paired with a tie. Refrain from wearing bold and bright colours or patterns in dress shirts; white, beige or light blue are safe colours for collared shirts. Choose a tie with colours and tones that match your suit and dress shirt; bolder colours and patterns are acceptable for ties. Some men choose to wear a three-piece suit, in which case the vest colour and material match the jacket and slacks.

    A dress pant or skirt with matching jacket is considered business formal for women. Depending on the season, jackets may be ¾ length or short sleeve. A crop pant suit is also suitable, however the pant hem should hit mid-calf and this style is not recommended in an interview setting. Skirts should always sit at or just above the knee. A collared blouse or dress-material top is recommended, and should either be tucked in or fall just below your waistline. Tops should never hang below the hem of your suit jacket, or be so short that they show your stomach. Always be cautious that dress shirts are not too revealing in any business setting. Pantyhose are not required, however during the fall and winter seasons, darker pantyhose or tights are recommended when wearing skirts.

    Depending on the colour or tone of your suit, a black or brown belt should be worn. Coloured or white belts are not recommended. Never wear white socks with a suit. Dress socks should always be worn, preferably in a tone matching your suit and shoes. When in doubt, wear black dress socks. Optional accessories for men include cufflinks or a pocket-square. The material should match the tie. If desired, women may wear simple and tasteful jewellery; chunky and/or bright accessories are not recommended.

    Shoes, boots, flats, open-toed and closed-toed shoes in a leather or dress material are appropriate and should be clean and polished.

    Jewellery, Makeup, Perfume, and Cologne

    These should be in good taste, with limited visible body piercing. Makeup should be used minimally to represent a natural look. Remember, some colleagues are allergic to the chemicals in perfumes and makeup, so wear these substances with restraint.

    Religious and Health Accommodations

    Should a bona fide religious practice, belief or legitimate health need conflict with the dress code, reasonable accommodations will be made.

    Insurance coverage is available for every conceivable risk your business might face. Cost and amount of coverage of policies vary among insurers. You should discuss your specific business risks and the types of insurance available with your insurance agent or broker. Your agency can advise you on the exact types of insurance you should consider purchasing.

    General Liability Insurance

    Business owners purchase general liability insurance to cover legal hassles due to accident, injuries and claims of negligence. These policies protect against payments as the result of bodily injury, property damage, medical expenses, libel, slander, the cost of defending lawsuits, and settlement bonds or judgments required during an appeal procedure.

    Product Liability Insurance

    Companies that manufacture, wholesale, distribute, and retail a product may be liable for its safety. Product liability insurance protects against financial loss as a result of a defect product that causes injury or bodily harm. The amount of insurance you should purchase depends on the products you sell or manufacture. A clothing store would have far less risk than a small appliance store, for example.

    Professional Liability Insurance

    Business owners providing services should consider having professional liability insurance (also known as errors and omissions insurance ). This type of liability coverage protects your business against malpractice, errors, and negligence in provision of services to your customers. Depending on your profession, you may be required by your state government to carry such a policy. For example, physicians are required to purchase malpractice insurance as a condition of practicing in certain states.

    Commercial Property Insurance

    Property insurance covers everything related to the loss and damage of company property due to a wide-variety of events such as fire, smoke, wind and hail storms, civil disobedience and vandalism. The definition of “property” is broad, and includes lost income, business interruption, buildings, computers, company papers and money.

    Property insurance policies come in two basic forms: (1) all-risk policies covering a wide-range of incidents and perils except those noted in the policy; (2) peril-specific policies that cover losses from only those perils listed in the policy. Examples of peril-specific policies include fire, flood, crime and business interruption insurance. All-risk policies generally cover risks faced by the average small business, while peril-specific policies are usually purchased when there is high risk of peril in a certain area. Consult your insurance agent or broker about the type of business property insurance best suited for your small business.

    Home-Based Business Insurance

    Contrary to popular belief, homeowners’ insurance policies do not generally cover home-based business losses. Depending on risks to your business, you may add riders to your homeowners’ policy to cover normal business risks such as property damage. However, homeowners’ policies only go so far in covering home-based businesses and you may need to purchase additional policies to cover other risks, such as general and professional liability.

    The Difference Between Sales and Business Development #business #advisor

    The Difference Between Sales and Business Development

    Almost daily, I run into the misconception that the function of sales and business development are interchangeable, from co-workers to industry peers. This stems primarily, I believe, from the shift in titles of salespeople to business development — which has been done in an effort to avoid the negative connotation that surrounds it.

    In reality, the two are very different. Hence, this tweet.

    If you use the terms Business Development and Sales interchangeably, you’re doing it wrong.

    But 140 characters just isn’t enough to explain of the subtleties, so here we are.

    When you think about the function of business development, it should be thought of as a marketing function. Yes, there are some soft sales skills (qualification, negotiation, etc.) that are necessary to become a good business development professional, but at the end of the day, it’s a marketing function.

    If you were to think about it on a sliding scale between a pure function of sales or marketing, it would wind up somewhere around here.

    The reason behind this, is that typical goals of business development include brand placement, market expansion, new user acquisition, and awareness — all of which are shared goals of marketing. The slight slide towards sales is simply because of the tactics business development employs to achieve those goals.

    Which is where we get into the meat of it.

    Regardless of the company, business development tends to hold the same structure, which I sketched up quickly below.

    Simply stated, the function of sales is to sell directly to the end customer. The function of business development is to work through partners to sell to the end customer, in a scalable way.

    That last part is key.

    Scalability is the differentiator. It allows a company to use pre-existing sales teams or communities that a partner has developed to reach new audiences. Sales is very much an equation of capacity, which is why sales teams tend to grow so large. Business development teams, on the other hand, are typically very small, maintaining their small size by working through existing partner infrastructures. The art of business development comes in identifying partners that fit that description, while finding a way to provide value to the partner’s end customer and business.

    You can see this relationship in a few of the examples I laid out in a previous post on the role of business development at a startup.

    Now, all of this isn’t meant to de-value the function of sales. Truth be told, I really respect good salespeople. It’s an extremely difficult career, one with constant denial and pressure to succeed. Sales is hard, and should be respected when it’s done at a high level.

    But the two are very different, despite their apparent overlap.

    Burglar Alarm or Security System: Is there a Difference?

    That is a question that many burglar alarm system dealers often find themselves answering. After all, many people grew up calling that small panel near the door a home burglar alarm; to them, the term “security system” may sound like an entirely different piece of technology. Years later, when they go shopping for home burglar alarm systems or they are reading home burglar alarm systems reviews online, they may very well get confused about the difference between the two. To help clear things up, here are the actual definitions of both.

    What are Burglar Alarms?

    Burglar alarms are the components of security systems that alert the homeowners to the presence of an intruder. In the security industry, the technical term used for home burglar alarms is “intrusion detection” or “intrusion detection systems.” But the truth is, most homeowners who own alarms do not merely have a burglar alarm; what they actually have is a comprehensive security system, which includes intrusion detection in the form of burglar alarm equipment.

    Getting Your Burglar Alarm Monitored

    A simple burglar alarm, even a wireless burglar alarm, will sound whether or not the alarm is monitored – but take note, most police departments will not respond to an alarm that is not monitored by an alarm monitoring company. That is why it is so important to have your alarm, whether it is a hard wired or wireless burglar alarm system, monitored by professionals. More on that in a moment, though. For now, let’s address what security systems are; these are the systems that feature burglar alarms in them.

    What are Security Systems?

    Security systems are electronic systems that contain many different types of detection features: intrusion detection (burglar alarm systems), fire protection (fire alarms), life safety detectors (such as flood detectors, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and more). In some cases, security systems can also incorporate advanced life safety features like temperature monitoring. No matter what features are integrated, a security system can and should be connected to a UL listed monitoring center with trained operators standing by 24 hours a day to respond to alarms activations.

    Why Life Safety Features Matter

    Life safety detectors may sound like unnecessary features to some people, but they are actually very important security system components that should not be undervalued. Remember: Floods can destroy homes and property, smoke detection is the first step of fire detection, carbon monoxide is a silent killer, and high or low temperatures can be dangerous to both people and pets. Some of the most popular wireless burglar alarms on the market today are full blown security systems that incorporate all these features. They go far over and above the standard home burglar alarm systems of yesterday.

    What Else Can a Security System Have?

    In some cases, homeowners choose to integrate security cameras; depending on the monitoring company, these cameras may be able to benefit from monitoring services as well. One thing that is highly recommended is purchasing a burglar alarm system that offers online access; this will ensure that the owner can log into the account from any Internet connection and see what times the alarm was armed and disarmed. In fact, he can also view live video of the home, if there are cameras installed.

    These systems typically allow the homeowner to program it for notifications of important events throughout the day, such as when family members arrive home or leave for the day. And if desired, some of the home’s most important electronic features can be integrated with the security system: lights, locks, garage doors and others. It’s still a home burglar alarm, but it’s a far superior one that fulfills all kinds of needs.
