Donating Blood and Stem Cells

People need blood, and people need stem cell transplants, so it’s time for us to WakeUp as a culture and does some donating, especially this time of year.

The numbers don’t lie, blood transfusions and bone marrow disease are real, and you can do something about it!! There are about 35,000 pints of blood used in the U.S. every day, according to BNL Blood Drives. That is insane, and if you never been on either side of it, you wouldn’t fathom how massive that is. There are people in need of blood every day for life-saving reasons, so if you have never donated, now is the time to step up and give back. There are blood donation centers all around the country, click that link, and you can find one in your area.

There are many reasons for receiving blood; some people wind up in horrific accidents and lose significant amounts of blood. In contrast, others need transfusions because of complications from disease and health-related issues. Regardless of why they need it, just knowing that 35,000 pints of blood are used each day should wake you up like a blast of NARCAN and get you running to your nearest donation center.

Knowing that could be you one day if you accidentally run a red light, or your child if they are injured in some freak accident on the playground. Who knows when, and who knows how? We don’t, so it’s best to be prepared. Giving your blood to others will ensure that there is a local supply in your community for your blood type, and that could mean something if you find yourself in the emergency room one day in need of a few pints of Dracula juice.

Blood talk aside, bone marrow donors are also needed as more than 44,000 Americans will need a bone marrow transplant this year alone. Bone cancer is killing people, and you can do your part saving a life by donating. The technology behind it all is getting better; it’s less painful and has a faster recovery time than ever before.

The new year is almost here, step up, and donate blood and bone marrow. People need you, and one day it could be you in need. It’s time to WakeUp and smell the coffee people, the disease is real, and it could happen to you or a loved one anytime. So make the right decision and start looking into some of these resources on donating blood and marrow.

I’m Honestly Fed Up With All The Bad News, So I Illustrated 50 Of The Best Ones From 2019

We are often bombarded with fear-mongering and shocking headlines that make us feel that the world is falling apart.

However, while it’s important to report on problems and issues, I believe there is so much good in this world that it needs to be found and promoted just as widely.

Because of that, I started The Happy Broadcast. It’s an anti-venom to the vitriolic rhetoric that pervades our media. Also, this year, I’ve illustrated even more happy news than in 2018.

We need more positive news to acknowledge that the world is actually getting better little by little.

When I’m working on The Happy Broadcast, I try to pick news that has an international appeal and touches themes like animal rights, climate change and science. News that shows how much we’re progressing on many fronts despite being often bombarded with few-mongering headlines.

I think there are many reasons why negative news is dominating the media. It’s like a sudden disaster a, it’s more compelling than, for example, little improvements. Bad things can happen quickly, but good things aren’t built in a day, and as they unfold, they’re out of sync with the news cycle.

As humans, we have this thing called “negative bias” that make us respond quicker to bad or dangerous situations. Nowadays, this bias is getting in the way of our happiness and well-being, and even our productivity because most of the narrative surrounding us (print, online or mobile) is that the “world is ending”.

I think we should find a balance between negative and positive news. From politics to climate change and economy, negative and bad news surrounds us everywhere we go. A potential solution could be to limit the amount of bad news, basically slow down our personal news cycle, adding some positive news to our “news diet” to make sure that our outlook on the world is more optimistic. Also, it’s very important to invest time to deal with misinformation and the reliability of news sources.

This Instagram Account Collects Funny And Strange Things Spotted On Public Transport (40 Pics)

This page is the best-kept secret of the entire ‘Humans of’ series. Heck, maybe of the entire internet. Humans of Trolleybuses (Humans of Trūlai) offers a glimpse into the funny side of Lithuanian public transport, and it’s really colorful, too. Extravagant clothing, questionable luggage, they feature it all.

The creator of the page, Rokas Stasevičius, said he started it after one memorable encounter. Rokas was taking a trolleybus when one of the passengers, a drunk, was smoking inside of it, singing chanson songs and, after being kicked out of the vehicle, waved Rokas goodbye with a smile on his face. This pretty much sums up what content to expect from Humans of Trolleybuses.

“Time spent with cats is never wasted.”

For the most part, Humans of Trolleybuses relies on its community. “At the height of the page’s popularity, it was receiving about 15-20 submissions per day,” Rokas told Bored Panda. “To decide if a particular picture is worth a post, I’m trying to figure out whether it would enrich social media or trash it. At first, I consider the originality of the photo/video. It can’t be a repost or something lame in general as the idea behind the project is to create unique, independent content that isn’t toadying to anything or anyone.”

“Ideally, the photo/video makes up for about half of the entire gag. The other half is the caption, so, the more interesting and abstract the image or recording is, the more freedom there is to create a captivating caption.”

“The best captions usually come spontaneously, during the first viewing of the submitted material,” Rokas added. “If you’re overthinking it, it might end up too complex, forced, and only you and a couple more people can understand it. I don’t have one rule on how to craft the perfect caption, I just try to feel it out, make it something that compliments the picture/video without overpowering it.”

#3

Remember stuart little? this is him now. feel old yet?

Today is also a tougher period for Humans of Trolleybuses. Rokas attributes the lower number of submissions and posts to the transition the page is making from Facebook to Instagram. “I believe that it’s only a matter of time before the project becomes what it recently was.”

He thinks that many people are drawn to Humans of Trolleybuses probably because they relate to the trolleybuses themselves. “It doesn’t matter how uncomfortable or slow they are. People sympathize with them and people need quality content which can also be funny.”

Women’s Golf Is Taking Off

Wakeup! Women’s golf continues to gain popularity, and more young girls are taking up the sport than ever before. Here we discuss why we love the sport and who our favorite girl golfer is at this time.

Stephanie Meadows is a women golfer who played at the University of Alabama originally from Northern Ireland. She placed third in the U.S. women’s open in 2014.

She is now sitting in the 112 spot of the 2019 LPGA Tour money list. She only has one event left to improve her place for the 2020 listing. Her life is full of having to overcome the past and her consistent perseverance shown in the Volunteers of America Classis when she shot a 63 to take the 18-hole lead. She is coming off if the 2012 NCAA national championship title and the 2014 U.S. Women’s open. She continues to show her career-low score of 63 to this day. She also wins the 2015 Heather Farr Perseverance award because she handled what life threw her way when her father passed away.

She was then tested again in 2017 when she found out she had a stress fracture in her lower back. She was misdiagnosed for ten weeks, and after this was diagnosed, she underwent surgery followed by months of rehab. After this surgery, she could not retain her card in the 2018 season, and she went to the Symetra Tour. She earned 6th place and retrieved her card again.

She continued to be tested in life, yet she continued to persevere and push through. She missed the cut in the 2019 debut at the ISPS Handa Vic Open. This was because of her falling down the stairs, twisting her ankle, and playing in a great amount of pain in Australia. She continued to miss cuts, as many as six throughout June and July. This caused her to reevaluate her game and lower her self confidence, but she kept pushing.

Since Meadow continued to persevere, she moved back up to 11th place in July at the Marathon Classic and an invitational. She also traveled back to her home country and played for money with women and men in the ISPS invitational.

Recently, Meadow got five birdies from the second hole to the sixth and bogey-free round. This resulted in her now sitting at the top of the leaderboard for the first time in her entire career. She never stopped battling and never backed down. She is not only back and playing, but she is winning championships. This allowed her to realize what she can accomplish when she doesn’t back down. This girl has battled through a lot and rocked a sexy sleeveless golf shirt the whole time!

The whole world has seen what Meadow has accomplished, and they have also seen what has been thrown at her but not stopped her. She is the top 2020 person to watch in women’s golf. She has given a great example of what it’s like to keep on fighting in anything you do. Especially something you love doing. She is not only back and playing, but she is winning titles and making a great name for herself.

How You Can Improve Conversion With Call Tracking

Call Tracking Software For Your Business

Wake up, people! This is the era of digital marketing, and if you don’t use call tracking for your business, you have been sleeping under a rock somewhere. Grab a cub of your most robust coffee, splash some Woodinvile Whiskey in there if you need, and get ready to learn about the value of call tracking.

Many digital marketers use resources like cookies and read receipts to understand how effective their digital marketing campaigns are. Most of these tools are incredibly useful for tracking engagement and conversion, but some marketers are missing the boat when it comes to call-tracking. Tracking inbound calls is a great way to find out which campaigns have been useful for you. You can add unique tracking numbers to postcard mailers, landing pages, social media profiles, and email campaigns.

Setting up your call tracking software should be pretty straight forward. You will need to create an account, buy a number, and configure the forwarding options. Here I’ll list this process in detail for you.

Find a Call Tracking Solution

This shouldn’t be difficult, and there are dozens of companies out there that offer Call Tracking for businesses. Call Fire, Call Rail, Call Tracking Pro, and Plateau Telecom are a few of the top companies online providing these services.

Create an Account

Login and Crete an account. Here you will be able to order your numbers, assign call forwarding options, setup voicemails, and add additional recipients for the calls to be forwarded to.

Purchase Numbers

If you have an affiliate site that sells a widget, or if your business would benefit from a custom number, you can try different numbers for different sites. You can buy a number for each social profile, paid ads, and for the various landing pages on your website. It’s relatively cheap to purchase numbers, so it makes sense to invest in multiple numbers for tracking.

Call Forwarding

You will want to configure the forwarding options so that the calls can be answered and tracked correctly. Having multiple recipients available to handle those calls would be ideal. You can create unlimited forwarding options, allowing you to forward the calls to the office, and personal cell phones.

Call Recording

As any digital marketer will tell you, conversion continues through to the point of sale. Recording the conversations, your prospects or having with your call center, receptionist, or sales team is a great way to track the effectiveness of those individuals once the call reaches the office. Having recordings to reference is also beneficial if there is a miscommunication with the client.

You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, and that stands true with inbound phone calls. The first time a prospect calls your business, it’s the first and most impactful impressions they will have. That is the moment where the call needs to be answered, and the individual taking the call needs to be knowledgeable enough to help the caller with any questions or concerns they may have.

Call tracking is one of the most affordable and most effective tracking options out there. By allocating custom numbers to specific landing pages, social properties, and directory listings like Yelp, you will gain a real understanding of the effectiveness of those campaigns and branded company profiles.

Benefits of Having Good Incident Management Software

software safety management systems

Too many people sleeping on the job, it’s time to Wakeup! Do you realize how many accidents happen every year as the result of sleep employees? Thousands! Seriously people, it’s time to Wakeup and pay attention to what’s happening around you.

In business, we like to think that everything will go smoothly, and there’s nothing wrong with hoping for the best. However, there also needs to be a plan in place just in case the worst happens, and this is where incident management software comes in. 

In case you haven’t seen this type of software before, it’s installed to alert team members when there’s a problem with an IT service. With a solution like this in place, downtime is limited, and you aren’t losing potential customers just because of a small issue with your IT services. Not only is the team alerted to the problem, some software solutions will create a report and even automate a workflow to ensure the problem is resolved as quickly as possible. 

Why have safety management software in your business? 

Boost Productivity 

In years gone by, there would be an element of guessing about incidents and the resolution required to get back up and running. Now, an incident management program will remove this guesswork and follow a set procedure. For example; 

  • Identify the problem 
  • Categorize the incident 
  • Set a priority level 
  • Respond to the incident 
  • Analyze whether there are patterns and trends to this incident and others like it 

When multiple incidents happen at the same time, the priority ranking ensures that the most serious issues are dealt with as early as possible. Meanwhile, smaller problems are fixed whenever the resources become available. 

 Help with Documentation and Reporting 

What happens when the shareholders, directors, or another stakeholder wants to see a report on IT service management and effectiveness? With an incident management system in place, it’s suddenly much easier to document performance and the utilization of resources. 

Visibility and Credibility 

Often, complaints and issues will come from the customer directly. Of course, customers need to feel as though their voice is heard and this is where the brilliant ticketing system is useful. Even when communicating with staff who have reported a problem, a ticketing system allows the other party to manage expectations and see that the problem is actually being investigated rather than ignored. 

When customers feel they have a voice, they feel valued by the company and it’s possible to build credibility within the market. At the same time, the IT department enjoys the system because tickets are organized and assigned rather than two people doing the same work. 

Quick Resolutions and Top Service 

With the biggest problems having top priority assigned to them, they’re more likely to get resolved quickly. Rather than wasting time on basic problems, the IT team can use their time more efficiently and this leads to the best possible service for all involved. If the website has crashed or a particular contact form isn’t working, it goes through the system and gets fixed with speed. For the customer, they see that this is a company that knows what they’re doing. You gain credibility, respect, and a reputation for brilliant service. 

Data Feedback 

As the final benefit of choosing incident management software, they gather data from all the incidents that pass through the software, and this has the potential to be invaluable. You can review; 

  • The time spent on each ticket 
  • The speed of dealing with each priority level
  • Patterns and trends of incidents 
  • Severity of incidents 
  • Difficulty of incidents to resolve 

By setting parameters, you can even use the software to meet SLA requirements. Therefore, you should now start to see why so many businesses are implementing this type of software. By forgoing this technology, you don’t get the data, your customers are left in the dark, and your resources are deployed poorly!

Humor is a wonderful learning tool and helps us retain information much better. That’s because humor activates the dopamine reward system in our brains, stimulates our long-term memory, as well as our goal-oriented motivation.

Or, to put it succinctly, we remember that which makes us laugh. It’s a fact that has been known throughout history. And it’s one of the main reasons why people living throughout history have suggested that jokes (especially naughty ones) help us remember things quicker and better. The next time you need to memorize something, try associating it with something funny and shocking.

However, not all forms of humor are equal in the classroom: the humor that educators use has to be related to the topic for us to retain the information for longer. But cruel or forced humor, as well as sarcasm, doesn’t always have the same positive benefits that genuine laughter does.

I am so very sorry for the lack of respect that was used and again I apologize for this mistake. I hope that this does not reflect what you think of me and that the next assignment I can address by the correct name. Thank you again and I am so sorry. Thank you, Zoey”

What Exactly Are Surfactant Cleaners?

Wake up! It’s Saturday morning and it’s time to help mom clean the house. I remember those days growing up, Saturdays sucked almost as bad as the school week. Mom would crank her music on, open the bedroom door, and say wakeup, it’s time to clean! I hated that with a passion. Well, fast forward all these years and here I am writing about surfactant cleaners, and little did I know back then, I was using them to clean that kitchen every weekend.

So What Are Surfactants?

The word surfactant is derived from a sequence of words called “Surface Active Agents.” The actual surfactants are molecules that are used to help reduce the tension of water on a given surface and helps it spread more evenly. To simplify this statement, why don’t we say that surfactants make water even wetter. Surfactants are also penetrating agents that are designed to get deep into the crevices of any service and loosen the soil so that cleaning becomes more efficient.

So How Does A Surfactant Work?

When you add chemical surfactants to water, you help the water spread more evenly over a surface. If you clean your kitchen counter and spray a chemical on the surface, you may notice that the liquid beads up on the surface of the counter. This chemical reaction allows the water to spread more evenly across the surface of your counter, penetrate cracks and crevices, loosen dirt and grime, and clean the surface more efficiently. Surfactants are made up of multiple molecular elements. There is a head and a tail, one attracts water (head), and the other repels water (tail). When surfactants are not present in water, the water will bead tightly. When surfactants are added to water they the beads flatten and cover more surface area. Adding surfactants to cleaning products helps the solution to spread more evenly and covers more of the surface you are trying to clean. 

Why Surfactants Are Perfect For Cleaning

When you spray a degreasing cleaning solution on a surface for cleaning purposes, the tail of the surfactant works its way into direct contact with the surface area. During this process, it will wedge itself between the surface and the dirt and grime that is on the surface area. By doing this, the surfactant element is loosening the dirt particles from the surface area, making it easier to clean. This process is referred to as roll-up and is referencing the event when the surfactant roll up the dirt particles as it makes contact with the surface area. Products like Aqua-cleen degreaser additives are added to household cleaning supplies to create this unique. As this happens, the hydrophobic tails of the surfactant cling to the dirt since it is not water. This allows the cleaning solution to bind with the soil and will enable you to clean more efficiently. 

Surfactants In The Home

Most household cleaning solutions consist of surfactants that help you every time you clean your kitchen or bathroom. Surfactants make cleaning faster and help keep surface areas clean and free of dirt particles. Surfactants can be found in the best laundry detergent, dishwashing soap, toilet cleaners, shower cleaners, and other interior and exterior residential cleaning supplies.

Advertising Agencies – What Can You Expect for Your Business

how to market your business online

In today’s world, advertising and the wider marketing section of your business has the potential to be a catalyst. With one marketing campaign, all your Christmases can come at once and the business can propel towards its goals. Alternatively, it could not only drain your marketing budget but drown the business too. 

With such high stakes, you may consider an advertising agency. If this is the case, allow us to explain what you can expect from the experience! 

A Reliable, Experienced Partner

First and foremost, the reason we choose a professional in any field is for their experience and insights. Whether an accountant or a car mechanic, we need their guidance in an area in which we don’t feel comfortable or simply need assistance. With an advertising agency, this is no different; they’ve worked in the area for some time, understand the strategies that work (and the ones that don’t!), and this has the potential to save lots of time and money. Media buying, video production, and digital marketing all require the expertise of an experienced marketing agency. Companies like Beyond Theory offer premier marketing services that cater to the needs of all business types.

As you continue to grow, the agency will stand beside you and contribute in whatever way you need. 

Support Across All Campaigns

Essentially, your chosen advertising agency becomes an outsourced chief marketing officer (CMO). As an addition to the team, they will help across all campaigns whether you want to focus on TV ads, social media, or another platform entirely. 

If we take social media as an example, this arena is continually changing. Rather than taking the time to stay up to date with algorithms and what advertising techniques are outperforming all others, outsource to a team of social media experts that deal with this area every single day.

Creative Assistance and Direction

Let’s face it, dealing with advertising isn’t just a matter of investing time, it requires creativity. With every year that passes, it’s taking more and more creativity to stay relevant in any industry. The more creative you are, the more likely you are to catch the attention of your target market. You’re not just paying to get these things done, you’re paying to get them done well. 

It’s important to distinguish between the big picture and more refined tasks too. As well as helping with specific campaigns, your advertising agency can help to innovate and create a strategy that pushes your own business beyond the competition. Over time, you can sit down with your new partner every so often and discuss how well the company is progressing towards long-term goals.

Data-Driven Expertise

We live in a world of data, and it’s easy to get lost in a sea of percentages and metrics. With an advertising agency, you have a service that will manage this data and make the right decisions based on customer segmentation, consumer behavior, and the ever-changing market. We’ve spoken about creativity, but creative advertising will only get you so far; you also need to reach out in the right places at the right times. 

Results

Finally, we can’t forget that the results will decide whether or not the investment has been worthwhile. Using everything that we’ve discussed so far, the reputation of advertising agencies is built upon their track record. With the very best agencies, they will exploit all the right avenues in order to boost exposure for your business. 

To finish, here’s some more things you can expect for your business with an advertising agency; 

  • A strategic partner 
  • Revenue 
  • Improvement in the customer experience 
  • Knowledge of advertising techniques and strategies
  • Ad content that resonates with prospective clients 
  • Growth 
  • Long-term planning

What’s more, the agency will adjust their service depending on what you need. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, they will listen to your needs and goals, learn your industry, and adopt a tailored strategy! 

Chicken Leg Socks Are A Thing And They Look Hilarious (19 Pics)

We’ve all heard the ‘why did the chicken cross the road’ jokes hundreds if not thousands of times. Well, now you can actually look like a chicken when you cross the street.

Which is why TheFound created a pair of clucking impressive socks just for the occasion. It’s something for bird-lovers and fowl-admirers to wear at their upcoming Halloween galas.

While I personally have never wanted to dress and look like poultry (my favorite animals are wolves, eagles, sea otters, and dragons), I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there who think chickens are cool.

Because we’re on the topic of chicks, here are some fun and unexpected facts about them! Do you know how many chickens live in the world? Take a guess. Yeah, well done, you were pretty close. The Smithsonian Magazine states that there are 25 billion chickens worldwide. That’s just around three chickens for each person alive today. Which, when I put it that way, doesn’t sound like a lot at all. I’d name my chickens Huey, Dewey and Louie, what about you?

While we’re all used to thinking that chickens can’t fly, that’s not entirely true. They can fly high enough to get over a fence or to fly up a tree. Which is far more than I’ve achieved flapping my arms at the office just now.

Chickens are omnivores, just like people. Sure, they’ll eat seeds. But they’ll also eat insects, lizards, and rodents — in fact, its diet is very similar to the fearsome carnivorous ‘werewolf’ grasshopper mouse that howls at the moon and has a thirst for blood like a parched vampire.

Baby chickens are called chicks, while female chickens are known as pullets. When they’re old enough to lay eggs, we start calling them hens. Meanwhile, male chickens are known as roosters or cockerels.

Also, did you know that female chicken biology is amazing? After hens become romantically involved with several roosters, they can choose which bird’s DNA they want to keep inside of them. This means they can always choose the strongest bird to father their fluffy offspring. What do you think of the chicken socks? Would you wear a pair yourself or gift them to a friend?
