Starting Part Time Computer Career From Home is the Way to Success

By © Arthur, The Part Time Job Home

With the low costs of computer and internet connections, it have become easier today for people to start a part time computer career from home.

The general attribute for people to start a computer career from home are:

 – fulfill their dream of financial independence
 – an extra income or back up income in the event of losing your full time job
 – have a regular job with a regular income from home after retirement
 – experience the joy and thrill of creating your own job opportunity
 – an insurance against any economics downturn when there are mass retrenchment

However, when you want to start your own part time computer career from home, don’t be under the misconception that it needs very little effort and time.  It is advisable that you should start by doing it on a part time basis while you still have a full time career. 

There are several great reasons for starting your computer career on a part time basis:

 – By doing it part time, you minimize your risk both in time and finance as your still have a full time income.
   (in fact, that is how I started my computer career from home).

 – As you still are earning a full time monthly income, it will give you the confidence and money to invest in your part time career.  You don’t have to worry about the payments of your monthly bills and can focus better in developing your part time career until it can earn you a SECOND source of full time income.

 – There is always a learning curve we need to experience.  Your first attempt of starting a part time career could end up in failure for various reasons despite your enthusiasm and determination to succeed.  In such an event, at least you could still fall back on your full time income.

 – With your full time career as a backup, you are not under tremendous pressure to perform in order to survive.  You still can live normally as you developed new skills, knowledge and you can grow your second source of income at your own pace.

 – You continue to enjoy the benefits of a full time career such as health insurance, annual leaves, bonus and other benefits that your company may have given you as an employee while you develop your part time career into a full time income.

Having listed the above benefits of not quitting your full time career while you developed your part time computer career from home, there are also some disadvantages that you should be aware:

 – At time, working on a full time and part time career together can be strenuous and you may experience burnout or depressions. This may have an impact on your life and full time career as you neglect your love ones, career or even both.

 – Your part time career may create problems for your full time boss or employer as …

Managing the Chinese Challenge

Background

China is the fastest growing market in the world today.  Therefore, it represents a huge opportunity for companies that are interested in selling their products in China.  At the same time, it has tremendous natural resources and work force, at some of the lowest costs in the world, providing the Chinese companies a competitive advantage, in China and globally.  However, it also allows foreign companies to reduce their production costs by transferring manufacturing or development facilities to China.

In contrast to the enormous prospect that exists in China, the entry of foreign companies to this market, and succeed in it, is quite difficult.  The cultural and business differences, coupled with the strong governmental regulations that still exist, make the penetration of foreign companies very difficult.  However, success in the Chinese market is not altogether impossible.  Numerous companies have succeeded greatly in the Chinese market and are enjoying the fruits of their labor.

As Chinese companies expand worldwide, they are becoming a substantial competitive force that must be dealt with.  Companies must find ways to overcome the Chinese cost advantage, either by reducing costs themselves, or by using other marketing methods.

In this document, we address two issues: penetrating the Chinese market and dealing with the Chinese competition worldwide.

Penetrating or Expanding Into China

Companies are interested in penetrating the Chinese market for two major reasons.  The first is to sell their products in this huge market, which is growing at the fastest pace in the world.  The second is to take advantage of the low production costs that exist in this market.  Expanding into China presents a challenge and must be done systematically.

Barriers to Entry

To succeed in China, companies must overcome the barriers to entry that are unique to the Chinese market.  The barriers are a result of the geographic conditions, the culture, and the distinctive economic structure.

Lack of Information

Unlike the western and developed markets, the Chinese market suffers from a noticeable lack of information and access to data.  The government does not publish extensive information about the macro conditions, and even when it does, it is not always reliable, there is a lack of industry associations to provide data on different industries, and research companies are not commonplace.  Private companies, those in western countries provide vast information about the products and services, through their web site and company collateral, do not provide such information in China.  In fact, companies are very hesitant to provide any information at all, they are very suspicious of any one who ask for an information, and even when eventually do provide information, it is usually very limited and in Chinese.

Diversity

The diversity that exists in China is apparent in a number of different aspects.  Many different regions of the country vary in regards to the geography, demographics, natural resources, etc.

The coastal area in China, including Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangdong, is much more advanced and developed than the western provinces.  Most of the international companies operate in the …

Paying for Crystal Meth Rehab

The monetary cost of rehab is one of the most commonly cited reasons why drug addicts do not get treatment. Finding a way to pay for treatment can be challenging in some situations, but it is not always as bad as one might think. In fact, there are many resources that addicts can use to fund their treatment, and in many cases, treatment does not have to be expensive at all. When deciding how to pay for crystal meth rehab, here are some important considerations.

Honestly assessing the cost

First, before making assumptions about how much crystal meth rehab is going to cost, it is a good idea to actually do some research into the issue. Look into local treatment facilities, and find out how much they charge for their various levels of service. You may not be able to afford full inpatient treatment at your preferred facility, but there should be other options available. You may also want to call the facilities and speak directly to people. All your conversations will be confidential.

Also, if you have insurance (and many addicts unfortunately do not), look into what your policy covers. Your insurance may not cover every aspect of crystal meth rehab, but it will likely cut the cost for you in some important ways.

Finding funds

Entering crystal meth rehab is one of the most important things an addict will ever do, so one should not simply assume that the funds are not available. If you have things you do not need which you can sell, now would be a good time to cash in on them. Also, if you have any savings, consider dipping into them for rehab. Whatever you are saving those funds for, they will be useless if you cannot get clean.

Finally, do not be afraid to ask others for help with crystal meth rehab. If you are demonstrably serious about quitting drugs and feel certain that you need medical intervention to aid in your recovery, make a strong case to loved ones who may be able to help. You may encounter doubt or skepticism at first, but if you can show people that you are heartfelt in your desire to change, they may be willing to lend a hand in funding your crystal meth rehab.…

Can you beat a red light camera ticket in California?

People often wonder if its possible to beat a red light camera ticket in California. These kinds of cameras have been in use in many areas of the state for a good number of years. These can catch drivers that go through an intersection when the light is changing but these also capture people that make right turns in a places that have, “no turn on red” signs posted at corners.

 

How these work

 

This product type has been used in some areas of the world since the 1960s but only started being used in the United States in the 1990s. These take an image of the car if it is in the intersection at the time the light is red. The ticket is then mailed to the car owner.

 

One problem that has come up over and over again is the fact that many times the time period in which the light is yellow is considered to be too short, making it impossible for someone to pass through the intersection without being present at some time during the red period. This has caused tickets to be canceled and in some cases, the cameras to be removed.

 

There has also been controversy over finding the right person that was driving the vehicle as well as concerns from some groups about the violation of privacy by being photographed and observed. This has caused some cities to rethink using these, either canceling plans to install them or removing systems in place. Another issue is the validity of a private company having the authority to legally issue a citation.

 

What can be done?

 

People can sometimes take these to court to fight them but for the average person, this may not be feasible. People have to provide some information to show why they shouldn’t have been given a citation and often people are at a loss to provide this. People may not have the time available to take off work to go to court.

 

There is another method that people can use to fight this kind of citation. There are companies that handle this process for a fee. These companies often have good success with this process because they are familiar with what needs to be done to fight them. This can save clients money on the ticket but also it removes the moving violation from the record, as this can be a factor that increases insurance costs.…

States are cutting benefits for seasonal workers

Unemployment compensation is money paid to people who have lost a job through no fault of their own. It is temporary income meant to help make ends meet while people look for work. Persons’ eligible for unemployment compensation receive benefits biweekly for a limited number of weeks. Typically, the individual will be paid about half of what the original full-time income was before becoming unemployed.  The individual must be able and ready to return to work, either to their old job or a new job to claim unemployment benefits. For claims with an effective date of January 1, 2012 or later, the individual have to actively seek work during each week the individual claim unemployment compensation benefits.

            Seasonal workers are defined as a worker who finds work only in certain seasons. A seasonal job is a short-term position designed to fill a temporary need, usually related to the time of the year. The basic premise of a seasonal job is that employers hire seasonal staff to fill a particular need that is not expected to last more than a few weeks or months. The timeline is usually set out at the beginning so that employees are not surprised when the work ends. Until recently most states allowed seasonal employees to collect unemployment benefits during the months when they were unemployed. For example, school bus drivers, cafeteria workers, janitors, and many other school employees know they will be unemployed during the summer months. Other examples of seasonal workers include construction, hospitality, and tourists industries. Cities and communities often contract out for work like snow plowing, lawn watering, and beach lifeguarding on a seasonal basis, as these are jobs that, in most places, can only be done during certain times of the year. People who take these jobs frequently have other sources of employment, and often pick up tasks on a part-time or as needed basis.

            Federal law prohibits professional athletes from collecting unemployment benefits between seasons, and teachers from collecting unemployment benefits during the summer. Is it fair to cut unemployment for seasonal workers? Unemployment benefits are more or less a safety net; it exists to help people through tough times when they lose their jobs. Taxpayers concerns that seasonal workers who receive unemployment benefits will increase a debt burden onto them. However, individuals don’t pay unemployment insurance taxes, employers and the federal government pays into the unemployment system, and the states handle the distributions. The other factor at play into the concerns is that many of seasonal workers aren’t unemployed in the traditional sense, some are simply on hiatus. Many of these workers have jobs they will be returning to in a few months, and don’t have any incentive to find work while they are receiving unemployment benefits. This make is easy for many people to use unemployment compensation benefits as an income supplement subsidized by the federal government.

            There are currently 15 states that limit unemployment benefits to seasonal workers, and several more states have legislation in work to …

Vehicle Vandalism

Essex police have recently issued warnings on the importance of diligence when leaving your car, to stop thieves from easy stealing. People have been informed that the majority of car theft is down to opportunity, and have issued important information on how to avoid becoming a victim of this type of crime. Suggestions such as parking in safe and well lit areas, and keeping the car in a secure place at night are some of the thoughts aired.  Lorna Watson, who is responsible for crime reduction in the South East, has also suggested that people get alarms and security devices installed to put off these criminals.  As she states, it is a lot longer process for the victim to get their car fixed and deal with their Motor Insurance provider, than it is for the thief to break in and steal their possessions.  Not to mention how upsetting it is for the victim.

In Buxton, police have warned that car owners need to be a bit more alert with their security, as there has been a spate of vandalism in the area, including the breaking of wing mirrors and destroying of tyres. 4.3 million UK motorists have been a victim of car vandalism in the past year, as found in a damning report from car insurer Direct line – up from just over 3.5 million in 2006.  This seems a lot, but police think the figures could be a lot higher, as car owners shy away from reporting to the police on a lot of occasions.  These incidents should be reported to the police, who will then issue a crime number.

Tony Chilcott, Head of Car Insurance at Direct Line, comments: “Official figures show that vandalism overall is a growing crime, with a 5 per cent increase on the previous year but, as our research shows, many acts of car vandalism go unreported, meaning that the actual number will be significantly higher.”

Be safe with your vehicle, and make sure that you implement these suggestions.

Insurance for Cars is often a lot cheaper with these factors in place too.…
