Using Ultra-Realistic Animations for Product Tutorials and Marketing

Using Ultra-Realistic Animations for Product Tutorials and Marketing

We use animation quite a bit in our company. We use it in marketing, and we use it in product tutorials for our technologies. We find that quality animations go a long way in getting consumers up to speed in how our products benefit them and how they can use the features they want. We hire all of the work out to a company that does expert motion graphics in Singapore. They can do any level of animation from the basic to the ultra-realistic type and everything in the middle. We use a lot of their ultra-realistic animations for our product demonstrations and tutorials.

When we get the animations back for approval, we are just amazed at the quality. Read the rest of this entry

I Had to Wrangle 40 Engineers for Two Weeks Work in Singapore

I Had to Wrangle 40 Engineers for Two Weeks Work in Singapore

I had to keep track of 40 engineers that work for our company. Each one is a specialist in areas of product development who were scheduled to meet with and work with other engineers in Singapore for two weeks. I was the liaison between the two sets of engineers, and had to arrange lodging, food, transportation and recreation for our people. The hotel to pick was easy. Food services in the hotel took care of meals. I hired transportation services in Singapore that contracts buses to move them back and forth from the hotel to their work facility. I thought it was going to be a nightmare to keep 40 engineers comfortable, fed, entertained and transported on time, but hiring professionals at the destination made all the difference.

Our company did a lot of extra tipping for the hotel staff that went out of their way to keep our people on schedule with work as well as fed and entertained during the off hours. Read the rest of this entry

Forensics vs Forensic Science

Forensics vs Forensic Science

If you bring up forensics in a conversation, those involved will often start thinking of scenes from the television show CSI (Crime Scene Investigation). It’s synonymous with scouring crime scenes for minute clues to help criminal investigators create leads in various cases.

Because of the misunderstanding that’s developed about criminal investigations and forensics, many don’t realize that there is an acute difference between forensics and forensic science.

Currently, forensic science gets shortened in most discussions to “forensics.” The word “forensic” actually relates to debates, and comes from the Latin word “forensis” or “of or before the forum.” This concept became most prominent in ancient Rome where both the accused and the accuser involved in a judicial case had to advance their arguments in front of a public forum. This led to the usage of the term “forensics” for both public debate and the presentation of legal evidence.

This concept of “evidence” is what has caused it to run parallel and merge with forensic science. As the judicial system evolved, so, too, did the evidence that was required in cases. No longer was it a matter of verbal debate; instead other forms of evidence were necessary. The concept, that being “forensic” or “before the forum” still holds true. The only thing that has changed is the type of evidence that’s being presented.

While some modern dictionaries will actually merge the two and provide similar or identical definitions, they are quite separate by origin and practical application.

The term forensics refers to public debate which includes the presentation of evidence and rhetoric. Forensic Science is something different. It deals specifically with the gathering, identification, research, and scientific interpretation of evidence to determine such things as who was involved in a crime.

In addition to confusing the terms forensics and forensic science, people often mistake forensic science for criminalistics. However, it’s important to keep these terms in context too. Forensic science involves any discipline that can be applied to evidence. Criminalistics is just one of the subdivisions of forensic science.

Some of the disciplines that fall under the umbrella of “forensic science” are:

-Computer Forensics -Forensic Accounting -Forensic Audio Engineering -Forensic Linguistics -Forensic Pathology -Forensic Psychology -Forensic Engineering -Criminalistics

Criminalistics itself is the scientific discipline which brings together various natural sciences such as biology and chemistry to the examination, identification, and comparison of certain types of evidence. Criminalists deal with biological evidence including DNA and bodily fluids, trace evidence such as fibers, hair, and soil, and impression evidence such as fingerprints and tire tracks. They also are involved with ballistics, drug analysis, crime scene photography and reconstruction.

As you can see, the forensic sciences deal specifically with the research and examination of evidence so that such evidence can be admitted to and used within the legal system. Forensics on the other hand should be viewed not as the science behind the evidence, but as the presentation and use of the research once it’s completed.

Stuck On Auto Responder

Stuck On Auto Responder

Today at lunch I noticed that I was acting with my auto responder on. Maybe you have had a similar situation where you are amazed by your actions; wondering if it really you. You seem like you- but you realize that this version of you is acting on autopilot. That was exactly what happened at lunch today while discussing the asset division of our home with my almost ex-husband. I was not being mindful. I had to stop and ask myself, Who is running the show here? Am I actively pursuing my goal or am I running on auto responder?

My goal, to have a win-win situation with my ex-husband. I want to respect our accomplishments of the past and to feel respected in this situation forward. And of course, having a fair division of our properties equity. Setting a clear goal prior to our meeting was crucial. How would I be feeling when I was accomplishing these goals? I knew I wanted to feel respect, love and a sense of fairness. Establishing how I would be feeling when these goals were met gave me a sense of internal control. I could review my feeling periodically throughout the meeting and use them as an indication of my immediate success.

The problem, I was afraid, having never been in this situation before made me feel vulnerable. Feeling vulnerable kicked in my auto responder thinking. My auto responder in this situation went something like: you know people will take advantage of you and therefore you have to fight for what you want. Feeling a loss of control was starting to dictate my behavior. I could tell I was moving further and further away from what I wanted. I was running on auto responder and that rarely gets me what I want.

Steps to achieving my goal took courage. I had to be willing to make the additional effort to insure success. I have in the past known what to do; but looked the other way because sometimes being on auto responder is easier.
Here was the fix: Turn off the auto responder! Paying attention to what was happening and how I was feeling allowed me to be at choice. Achieving my goal would take immediate intentional intervention. Regain the internal control that I knew I could have. By turning off my auto responder it allowed me to reconnect with what I really wanted: respect, love and a sense of fairness. I began to feel at choice. Ah freedom of choice, really no greater gift.

Are you on auto responder? I want to hear about it.

Computer Information Technology-What It Is & Why Is It Important

Computer Information Technology-What It Is & Why Is It Important

For example, computer information technology is often used to describe:
Computer hardware
Computer servers
Computer networks and networking equipment
Computer monitors
Software and operating systems
Printers
Copy machines
Fax machines
Office phone systems
Internet systems
Cell phones
Many additional types of technology and data management equipmentIT also represents the how all of these systems are used and how they inter-relate to one another at the same time.

In the Workplace: The IT Department

While it is not necessarily a rule, more often than not these days, a business’s IT department will typically manage all of the office’s technology needs, including everything from the procurement of computer and technology equipment to the installation and ongoing maintenance of the systems. In the modern data centered workplace environment we’ve come to expect today, ensuring the computer information technology backbone is operating effectively and efficiently has become absolutely mandatory to running a successful business or workplace operation.

Why Is Computer Information Technology So Important?

IT has become the lifeblood of how business is done. As our world continues to adapt more and more towards an information based society, managing the stream and storage of data and making access to data more and more reliable and easy to use is not just important from a profit standpoint alone-we’ve actually come to totally depend on technology 100% to make business possible.

In this type of environment, ensuring that every small “slice of the pie” operates and performs as it should is essential. Think of it much like setting up a chain of dominoes-if one piece of an organization’s technology system goes down, it is certainly going to have an entire chain of cause and effect throughout the entire organization.

Information technology is so important because it requires thoughtful and knowledgeable planning and development to create sophisticated systems that work seamlessly with each other to produce an end result of transparent functionality that we rely on. It’s almost like one of those things that we’ve just gotten used to-we’ve come to expect it to work flawlessly all of the time, only noticing it when something goes wrong.

This kind of operational transparency is usually the main goal of IT professionals. Making sure that data and technology systems work properly and dependably enables others to perform their duties without a hitch. Qualified IT professionals are always in high demand and generally well compensated for the services they provide.

It’s safe to say that computer information technology really is what makes the world of technology go ’round!

Rapid Fat Loss Healthy Weight Loss for Kids

Rapid Fat Loss Healthy Weight Loss for Kids

Are you looking for a diet program that offers healthy weight loss for kids? We read almost every day about the increasing problems of obesity in America. Many dieters are often turning to Atkins Diet, South Beach Diet and pills to lose weight, like Xenical (which has recently been approved for overweight teens). Most of these just aren’t good options for healthy weight loss for kids.

Everyone knows the quick answer Diet and Exercise!

It is more than obvious that eating right and getting plenty of exercise are the answers to a healthy weight loss. It doesnt take new research into why obesity is on the rise. It isn’t just larger portion sizes, fast food, or increased inactivity that are causing more kids and adults to become overweight.

The real problem is how we educate our kids to eat healthy and get plenty of exercise. The other problem is keeping them motivated for the long term.
Healthy Weight Loss for Kids should start at the home with educating are kids on proper eating habits and getting exercise on a daily basis.

Our schools can reinforce healthy weight loss for kids through removing soda and sugary fruit drinks. The school can provide kids with healthy meals in the cafeteria and daily exercise. The schools can also help to educate the kids, considering many parents dont know about eating healthy and exercising for weight loss. Education is the most important part of any healthy weight loss and will hopefully motivate anyone to lose weight in a healthy way.

In Texas, a law has recently been passed which requires schools to screen students for acanthosis nigricans, a light brown or black velvety, rough, or thickened area on the surface of the skin. This can often be identified with type II diabetes. But the law does nothing to educate these kids and provide them with information they need for healthy eating habits and getting daily exercise, especially for those students that have been identified as having type II diabetes.

Schools can help educate healthy weight loss for kids through:

1.More stringent daily physical education requirements.
2.Offering only healthy foods and drinks in the cafeteria.
3.Having fitness equipment available to all students, not just the sports teams.
4.Increasing the amount of recreation sports for kids that really dont want to join a competitive team sport.

Helping kids reach a healthy weight and avoid becoming overweight with regular exercise can help to build good habits that hopefully will last into adulthood.
