What Features Should I be Looking For if I Want a Bluetooth Headset for Conference Calls?

So i found this short article on the internet and i was told that just posting it as the whole piece isn’t the right thing, I got consent from the original author and read up the way to curate content, so that is it…….i thought this was interesting because it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working inside the industry.

Hi Tina, thanks for the question.

OK, so your basic requirements ought to be simple enough. Firstly, you’re going to need great sound quality. You’ll need to hear and process important information quickly and without asking the boss to repeat him/herself (unless of course you are the boss, Tina, in which case you don’t want your employees making you repeat yourself over and over).

The next feature on our list should be a great microphone, its no good being able to hear everyone clearly if they can’t understand a word you’re saying! The microphone ought to be able to transmit as cleanly as possible, without picking up too much background noise (e.g. dogs barking etc).

Another factor to consider is comfort, some calls can drag on for hours longer than they were intended to and you need to ensure that you are thinking clearly about what is being said, rather than worrying about the nagging pain on the side of your head! You’ll need a headset that is comfortable and easy to wear at all times, something that, ideally, you’ll forget you’re even wearing. If you aren’t sure how to find that, try on a friend’s headset for 15 minutes and see how it feels, if it is starting to become uncomfortable, you’re probably better off with a different design.

Once you’ve got these bases covered, you’ve probably found the right headset for you, but I’d read all the reviews you can find before purchasing, just in case! The truth is, that if you want a good quality headset, you’re going to need to spend out a little.

A Bluetooth headset is actually a good choice here, because it gives you the freedom to move around. My Dad used to take conference calls with his headset; casually dispensing advice to other attendees whilst tending to his bonsai trees. Sometimes having a little distraction can make all the difference. His thoughts were focussed and his mind was calm. This allowed him to take several conference calls a day and always be at his best. Sitting down for extended periods of time can be more tiring than people think!

Thanks again for the question, Tina, good luck in your quest for the right headset, as well as your career.

Two Way Radios Now and Before

audioFor a long time people have been telling me that relations, love and happiness are the important things in life…At present I realise that I’m able to take or leave all that so long as We have this earpiece in the world.

Today almost all two way radios have ranges from 1 to 2 miles and they are much smaller than the ones we had a decade or so ago. Two-way radios are very useful – they are great for long road trips when taking separate cars, on the ski slopes, at amusement parks, when hunting or camping, on backcountry hiking trips, or even in large shopping malls. Businesses can use two-way radios instead of cell phones in many situations as well. There are no per minute charges with 2-way radios which is one benefit over traditional cell phone use. Plus, if you are in the woods where cell phones don’t always work, a two-way radio may just save your life. What should you look for in a two-way radio from the store? We get into two-way radio features in our buying guide down below.

The main features to consider when buying a two-way radio are: channels, privacy codes, lock features, range, FRS/UHF/GMRS, size, usage life, display screen, and call features. Most two-way radios comes with 2 to 14 channels, the more expensive ones offer more channels. Extra channels can come in handy when you are trying to operate the Two Way Radios in a congested area. Some radios have sub-channels which greatly increases your choice and reception. To keep people from picking up your channel, look for two-way radios that offer privacy codes.

Privacy codes or private call features will scramble your voice so outside parties will not be able to listen to your conversation. Weather reception channels are available on most two-way radios and are great for finding out about local weather conditions. A lock feature allows you to stay on your particular channel even as you move around. A range of 1 to 2 miles is what most two-way radios will provide. The actual distance will vary as the terrain around you changes.

For a longer range, you will need to get on a GMRS (General Mobil Radio Service) which will require a special license that the FCC can supply. FRS (Family Radio Service) is the general radio frequency for families and recreational use that two-way radios use. You will also find two-way radios on the UHF (Ultra High Frequency) for better reception. Compared to the large radios of 20 years ago, todays two way radios fit right in the palm of your hand are rather small. Most are only 5 to 12 ounces in weight. Two way radios run on alkaline batteries or nickel cadmium batteries (check with the manufacturer).

Battery life for Two Way Radios is based around 90% standby, 5% reception, and 5% transmission. The display screens on two-way radios are not that large, but you can get a lot of information on the screen like battery life, clock/time, alarm, stopwatch, digital compass, thermometer, and indicators for transmitting or receiving a signal. LCD display screens are easier to see in changing light conditions so look for a model that offers that. A channel saver feature is nice to have and some models do it automatically for you while others require it to be done manually. Talk confirmation lets your other party know when you are done talking and when it’s safe for them to respond. Memory location will store the channels you use most so you can access them more quickly.

A scanning feature lets you see which channels are currently in use. Last channel recall feature lets you pull up the last channel you were on. All two way radios have an incoming call alert which is often just a simple ring. Look for models that offer a vibrate mode instead of the ring as this will come in handy when you are out hunting and need the quiet. The top brands in two-way radios are Motorola, Cobra, Kenwood, and Icom Two Way Radios. Prices range from $25 to $250 for two-way radios.

When you have just about any issues regarding in which along with how you can use earphone (http://hanaghansarah.tumblr.com/post/82681000112/what-is-the-curly-tube-that-fbi-agents-wear), it is possible to e mail us at the webpage.

Prosthesis-Controlling App Comes in Handy

My basic review of the new technological advancement it starts up well, looks pretty cool, is simple to run and very power efficient, the technology is a top quality item. I’m glad I purchased it, read further underneath.

A new bionic hand has been unveiled that can be remote controlled via a smartphone app.

The app’s developer, Touch Bionics, unveiled the groundbreaking application, along with their latest prosthetic hand, in April of this year.

The hand’s artificial thumb is controlled by signals from the users arm muscles, which are interpreted by the hand’s internal systems. However, in a world first, it can also be controlled, very simply, via the use of the new app.

The app features an array of preset positions that can be selected by the user tapping the screen with her/his thumb. When a position is selected, the prosthesis can react instantly, changing to ‘thumbs up’, ‘just a little bit’ or ‘OK’ positions easily. The app is not limited to simple positions, however, and more complicated functions, such as holding objects, handling documents and even typing, are featured as preset options.

In addition to the app, the bionic hand also features improved dexterity due to the presence of new extra-sensitive fingertip electrodes. In addition, the thumb can now move into 24 separate positions, made possible either by the user or the app.

The Bionic Touch app configures the hand positions into playlist-like folders such as ‘work’, which feature all hand positions regularly used at work (typing, using a mouse etc), so that the positions are within easy reach of the user.

The app itself also features training modes designed to help people learn to use it quickly and easily as well as diagnostic features that can interact with the hand itself and troubleshoot any possible problems.

The app has already received a measure of positive feedback from users, Bertolt Meyer, who uses the new hand, was quoted by ‘New Scientist’ as saying, “Powered thumb rotation, combined with the mobile app and quick access to all these new grips, gives me natural hand function that I never imagined would be possible,”

Learning to use a prosthetic limb is an extremely painful and frustrating process, but this app may just make the process a tiny bit easier for those who use it.

Working for Peace

audioThe basis of this post is to make you consider what in life is significant and what does getting the new radio accessory really represent to us

As Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness which created it.”
There can be no question that the words we choose and the metaphors we use reinforce our state of consciousness – our view of the world.
If we choose to use war as a metaphor for business, we see others in the business world as not merely “competition”, but actually “combatants”. When we talk about “beating the competition”, we reinforce the view of business as a zero-sum game, in which in order for there to be “winners”, there have to also be “losers”.

We spend more of our waking hours working than engaged in any other activity. Some of us even spend the majority of our waking hours working. If we want to change the world in a significant way, we must do so in the course of our work.
Do you want to create more peace in the world? I know I do.
If you want to create peace in the world, you must first create peace within yourself, your home, your community and, I believe, your business. Consider again the Einstein quote above. Consider again that we spend more of our time involved in business than anything else.

How can one possibly spend all day long dealing in a business world of winners and losers, of beating the competition, and so on, and then expect at the end of the day to truly help create peace in the world?
Is it any wonder our current political leaders don’t seem to really understand how to create peace through any other means than superior firepower, or at least the threat of it? Consider their training ground.
So long as we continue to use military paradigms in business, we will continue to operate at that level of consciousness in all of our relationships – personal, community and international. Until we change that, we will continue to breed world leaders who are driven by nationalistic and ideological pride, rather than human compassion and a desire for mutual understanding.

I find it positively repulsive that businesspeople use the thinking of Sun Tzu and Machiavelli as guides to business. If I could accomplish one thing in my life to truly change the world, it would be to replace every copy of The Art of War on business bookshelves with The Art of Peace and The Prince with The Little Prince.

If we want peace in the world, we must work for it, every minute of every day, in everything we do.
