0

Are you planning a wild trip? Check out places which you have never considered before. The most unexpected and exciting travel is waiting for you in exotic and cheap places.

Budget-Friendly Travel Destinations Around the World

Traveling around the world is a dream of many people. Today it became trendy to visit exotic countries or islands with paradise views. While people are dreaming of visiting Rome, Paris, Venice, others are enjoying bungalows in Thailand or rocky mountains in Georgia. Is it possible to make an incredible and cheap trip? Yes, traveling doesn't require savings anymore.

Planning

Before planning your cheap vacations, it is important to learn a few tips and tricks. Subscribe social public where you can monitor cheap flights and promotions. This will help you to save money on far holiday destinations. It also makes sense to set up a list of necessary minimum which you can carry on as a cabin luggage to avoid paying full price. You may also want to book a hotel or Airbnb apartment beforehand.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful places to visit. This is a paradise of palms, surfers waves, dolphins, whales, abandoned beaches, tasty food, and friendly people. Sri Lanka demands at least ten days to visit the most beautiful sightseeing peaks. The beauty of the island lies in the fact that there you can find almost everything including transparent water, white sand, surfers communities, and mountains covered with tea plantations. What makes the travel cheap is train tickets. For $1 - $5 you can cross the island in luxury seats or the open door.

Bali

This is another paradise. In spite of the high popularity of the destination among tourist here, you can find a personal villa with a garden and a kitchen for $20 per day. Bali is modern and doesn't have so-called "Asia" in it. There are good roads, cheap bikes, nice European bars with Asian prices, amazing nature, and loud parties. You may want to visit a beach with black sand. 



Cape Town, South Africa

This is a cheap, colorful, tropical, and wild traveling destination for those whose dream was to visit Africa. There you can find beautiful colorful houses, good beaches, great weather, wine, and safaris, not to mention the awesome blend of European and African cultures. Cape town is far away to go on holidays, but this is one of the best destinations for your money.


Vietnam

Today this is the modern country which is worth visiting not only because of cheap holiday resorts. Here you won't find beautiful beaches. You can manage a motorbike trip from Ho Chi Minh (or Saigon) with skyscrapers to Hanoi with street side bars which serve fresh Bia Pho beer for $0.25. A trip to Halong Bay may appear expensive but it worth it. 

Ecuador

Latin America is scary and dangerous, except Ecuador. This is an incredible country where you can have a great vacation in Andes Mountains, Galapagos Islands, Amazon Rain forest, and places to surf. Here you can combine summer and winter sports and have an incredible experience.

Krakow and Lviv

If you are looking for cheap places to go on holiday, then think about the east of Europe. Here you find beautiful architecture, narrow streets, tasty food and low prices. Lviv is a Ukrainian city, and Krakow is Polish city where you can enjoy the beauty of ancient spirit and friendly people. For Jazz music lovers there is a festival called Alfajazz where you can listen to Herbie Hancock, Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, and other legends for only $30-100 or for free in a park zone. 



Budapest

This is a European city which has an ancient history, perfect views, and cheap baths experiences. Their beer is cheap; the food is tasty, the holiday here is excellent. You can meet people from all around the world here and have an interesting bar experience. It is recommended to find Airbnb apartment to experience all the beauty of old buildings from the inside.

Mestia and Svaneti

This is a dream vacation for skiers, snowboarders, and free riders. The most incredible mountain views are here. Not only this place is cheap, but also modern and fully equipped for both freeride and traditional ski tracks. For $50 per week, you get ski passes to all of the lifts. Incredible views, an absence of people and lines, fluffy show, tasty food, wine and cheap accommodation will make your skiing or snowboarding experience unforgettable. In summer people come here to enjoy mountains, fresh air and bike ride through mountains.

How Artificial Intelligence can be dangerous for Humans in Future ?

0

So, few days back while scrolling down my newsfeed a video, which turned out to be a clip from a short film called "slaughter bots", made me jot this piece down to express my thoughts. The video that took the internet by storm features the killer robots that are capable of using facial recognition technique to identify their target and slaughter them!


The short film was released back in November 2017 by an Artificial Intelligence scientist of University of California, Stuart Russell. The basic purpose of the movie was to highlight the fact that building such killer bots is a bad idea and it shouldn't be encouraged. It threw light on the adverse effects of advanced Artificial Intelligence and the formation of weapons powered by AI. The movie comes to an end with half the kids at a university's political lecture being killed by these bots for their ideological views! The film is a part of the movement Campaign Against Killer Robots.  The campaign released the movie with the hope that it will pressurize the United Nations to outlaw lethal robots under the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW). 



As I scrolled through the comments under the video I couldn't help noticing the fear in people that raised due to the clip. Majority people referred to the fact the technology, even when designed for good, has been used to cause destruction to mankind. Even though this is film narrative, any government could issue millions of these killer bots to reduce population and assert total control over the remaining population. Professor Stuart himself said,

"This short film is more than just speculation, it shows the results of integrating and miniaturizing technologies that we already have. I've worked in AI for more than 35 years. Its potential to benefit humanity is enormous, even in defense. But allowing machines to choose to kill humans will be devastating to our security and freedom - thousands of my fellow researchers agree."
The release coincided with the UN's Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons in Geneva, Switzerland and one thing worth noting is that the world's three largest arms exporters, the Russia, China, and US have all shown signs of interest in unmanned weapons systems. There persists a fear that there could be an arms race to construct a fully autonomous militarized AI. Well one of the possibility, as to why applications like Facebook, Snapchat etc. are building databases using facial recognition is that the datasets can then be used to facilitate technologies like these. (We hope not, though!) 

It is also notable that CEOs, Researchers, and high-profile individuals like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk signed an open letter in July calling for the banning of military AI, and warning of its dangers ti humanity.

This information may include useful information such as contacts of health centers, gas and light companies, police, firemen, doctors and some personal telephone. 
Acting on time, in all cases, will help you avoid major consequences to a blow, fall, burn, cut, or any other setback.

The Most Important Elements of Team Building

0





















What keeps your squad from turning into a high-performance team? Why are most of the members not motivated encouraging others to perform lower? Why are they not able to make decisions and hold a discussion together to find solutions to the problems? These problems are familiar to many leaders. It is important to realize reasons for such behavior and prevent it timely. Hopefully, the practice of team building has discovered seven elements of teamwork to reach high-performance.

1. Set direction

What is necessary for effective teamwork? You, as an effective leader, have to set a vision to what your organization is going to be in three of five years. For example, customer support representative department is doing the routine job every day, but with the understanding that their routine can lead to better customer engagement and as a result, higher income and more bonuses. You also have to make the team understand the bigger picture, the mission of the company. Explain the command why does the company exist. You also have to explain the role of the team in this mission and why it is better than a single person.

2. Gather and deploy resources

After setting a direction, it is important to care about resources. Make different parts of a team identify the type of resources you need and the reason you need them. This is an important step. Defining the resources will help you to create a clear and compelling business case.

3. Assemble the team





















Components of a team are not the members, but their skills and the ability to trust each other to create working chemistry. Think about the skills your members need and assemble the right combination of them. You have to reach an understanding and trust. This must be not only the trust between them as equal members but also the trust between you as a leader and them. 

4. Allocate work and prioritize efforts

Learn to balance the workload across all of the members equally. Think about the strategy you want to use. Divide your business into elements reasonably and effectively. You also have to set the achievable goals which are realistic and will stretch the organization forward. Another important issue is prioritizing your efforts to focus on the most important things.

5. Execute the plan

After setting the priorities, it is time to execute the plan. This step includes making decisions, which depend entirely on the leader of the team. Once you have made all the important decision, you have to measure the results and adjust them accordingly. In this case, you don't need a teamwork. Instead, you have to prove your team that all the decisions made are reasonably and thoughtfully. Here it is important to mention that the skill requires training.

6. Motivation





















Only in this step, you have to think about the ways to motivate your people. It is necessary to acknowledge how you are going to empower and give them the authority to do their duties. Think about enabling them to make decisions. It may grant them with the sense of responsibility. Give the feedback on the performance and timely defuse a conflict which may appear in the process. Run it smoothly.

7. Long-term development

Think in advance how are you going to develop skills of your members. You should think about developing depth of the capabilities and develop a clear strategy. Stretch assignments help people in their effective growth. If you can execute all the seven elements of the high-performing command, it means that you are delivering the company a significant contribution.

What factors to look into when buying generator online?

0

Generators provide power to items as small as staple guns and as large as hospitals. From both commercial and residential viewpoint, they play a pivotal role in your ability to meet the goals. Whether you search for a portable generator for your home or high-power generators for industrial use, buying a generator requires certain knowledge.


How to Buy Generators
Before buying a generator, few things must be considered – size, location and use. Carefully evaluate the requirements and the options available to pick the generator of your need. Generators are extensively used for industrial sites, recreation events and business buildings. They offer great help by providing power at your fingertips. You can maintain a backup power source against natural disaster, disrupted services and inclement weather. In short, they are the best alternative for power disruption. 
How to Buy a Generator Online?
If you are looking for a generation and want to buy it online, here are some factors for you to consider.
1. Check the Wattage 
Wattage is extremely crucial when looking for a generator. It determines how much support you will receive from the generator. Smaller wattage will bare less and won’t be prepared for long term power loss. Check the details of the generator on the online website and see if it is good enough for you.
2. Consider the Fuel type of the Generator 
When buying generators online, consider the type of fuel used. They run on natural gas, propane, diesel and even with solar energy. Select a fuel type that is available to you in abundance. Thoroughly check different kinds of generators with fuel type that suits you. You can also search for energy efficient products along with the compatible generator to save energy.
3. Warranty and Voltage Requirement
Look for the voltage requirement for your usage. Common voltage requirements for the US are 120/208 volts three phase, 120/240 volts single phase, 120/240 three phase and 277/480 volts three phase. When buying online, it is easy to look for voltage specifications. In fact, also check for warranty of the generator. In case, you can’t find the warranty, ask the website to provide details about it.
4. Check for Insurance
Like any other machine, generators also result in improper functioning. Therefore, insurance is something very important for it. While searching online, make sure you check for the insurance of the generator.  



5. Consider the Shipping Charges
An online website may include certain shipping charges for industrial and home generators. Although, most websites mention this expense separately, some include it the total price. Make sure to check such hidden changes before placing the order.
6. Days for Delivery 
If you want your generator to reach within no time, the online mode may not be the right medium for you. However, there are certain online websites that may deliver you the product in minimum time duration. Look for such websites that have fewer delivery days. You can always call the customer care if you have any queries.
7. Authenticity of the Generator
I personally think that checking the authenticity of the product brand is extremely important. When looking for online products, check their authenticity. Buying online can turn out to be a bad experience if you have less awareness. From residential power generators to industrial high watt generators, legitimacy plays an important role.    
Buying a generator online can be challenging. But, if you have certain knowledge and awareness of generators, there are chances that you end up purchasing an efficient one. So, note down the specifications you want in it and start searching.

All the best! 
Authored By Canadian Power Systems

The company is a renowned name in this area and offers backup generators and equipment that are available in many different loads and power capacity. Our home generators in Canada are reliable and efficient, making lives better. We understand the importance of electricity in one live.

Top 7 Mistakes Managers Do In Communication With Employees

0

Being a good leader of a company and professional manager for the employees takes some time and skills of leadership and management. Managing is an art and if you are willing to become a good boss, you have to learn some basic rules. What is the most important is to get rid of some typical mistakes all the leaders usually do at the beginning of their lucrative career. The harshest mistake is not to admit your own mistakes silently feeling ashamed of them. But here is the thing – a mistake is an indicator of your development. So, are you getting a promotion to the position of a manager? Would you like to find out some secrets of how lead management? Do you want to avoid typical mistakes managers make in communication with employees? Then this article is for you.







It is better to do it yourself than explain a task for hours

This is the most common mistake for all the leaders despite their age and working experience. Keep in mind that wise leaders delegate authorities, not tasks. But if you haven’t got enough time to formulate your own managing strategy and leadership skills, do not hurry up to do everything yourself. Especially, if the deadline is coming. Managers are usually justify themselves that they are limited to the date and there is no time for explanations. But the same situation repeats project after project and these simple weaknesses in the workplace turn into a model of communication between the leader and employees.

The second justification managers tend to use is that no one can do better than they can. The only way out of this trap is to control your leadership weaknesses and force yourself not to perform task delegated to employees.

Now I am boss and I don’t want to go deep into details

This is the second typical mistake for supervisors. A professional and good-qualified boss always knows how the business works, gets interested in details. It is essential for a good leader to balance between delegating tasks and taking control over the team performance.

I want to control everything

This situation has something to do with the mistake #1, but here are some new peculiarities. A leader delegates a task to the employee, but at the same time, he would like to see hourly plan and control every minute of its performing. That way an employee does not feel responsible for the result. An effective manager delegates him a task, but not the responsibility for it.







Intense team-building strategy

We want others to like us. The best way to be attractive is to praise. It is a common mistake for young bosses to praise everyone for any detail in order to become popular. They focus only on positive moments and tend to ignore drawbacks of the work, thinking that it may work against the team-building strategy.

Intense team-destroying strategy

This one occurs when a boss suggests that instant critics and complaints work for benefit of the working process. Employees are aware their mistakes and are ready to rework them. Even if a worker performs tasks well, he could do it better. Criticism is not always a good idea, as there are times it starts to demotivate.

Boss is our peer

Young leaders usually tend to preserve friendly informal relationships with his employees. In my opinion, it is a controversial decision. Even if you are a big boss, you should always be a human. But it is also crucial to save the balance between friendly relationships and familiarity.

Focus on a result, but not on a professional development

Any task and any project is, firstly, a great opportunity to learn something new, but not just to achieve a result. A good boss always notices what new information and skills a team can get or master. That way, even the most failing project brings benefit.
