This past week, I had to call my cable television provider (Cox Communications) to come out and replace for a 2nd time, my high end cable box called "Countour" by Cisco. First of all, I think the new Countour box is great, provides much richer UX and dramatically improves the overall viewing experience. I also want to add that this idea is in no way a knock on Cox, as they provide excellent customer service.The trouble is that after 45 minutes of watching this poor tech replace my box - have it not work - then go through process to try another cable box - I realized that this is just out-dated way of my cable company servicing their technology and me, the customer.My idea is that Dell should get into the business of creating an infrastructure for cable telivision providers that would be a combination of a cloud infrastructure that would host each cable customers account, including DVR, preferences, movie purchases, etc and a front end Dell Wyse thin client.If that were available today and I was a customer, my initial call to my cable provider would have never happened because the hardware in my home (cable box) would be highly reliable, energy efficient Dell Wyse thin client. Software glitches - no longer an issue because the image would be in one central location and maintained directly by my cable provider. The technology exists today and maybe this solution is already in the works. Just had to take moment to put this out there if there was a chance we all could avoid a call to the cable guy! Thanks for your consideration.
It would be nice for Dell to have an advanced account executive that could resolve customer issues quickly. It is a real pain trying to resolve issues when you have to go thru an endless loop of customer service reps that cant reslove issues that are the result of poor quality control and customer service. There is nothing worse than getting the run around and feel like your issues are not being addressed. Just a thought.

Micro - health insurance: How and why it works in Indonesia Municipal solid waste (MSW) is graded as the highest importance waste stream in Indonesia, grounded on a country needs assessment analysis by the United Nations Environment Program me. Organic waste is not far behind schedule. It's not so much a lawful issue—Indonesia has approved a waste management law, nonetheless like the 18th amendment to the U.S. Constitution it is “not well implemented and enforced at all governmental levels. It is, though, costly to apply and pricey for consumers, which has led to low rates of obedience. Urban areas such as the second largest city in East Java Malang create more than 55,000 tonnes of solid waste every single day but then again only 50 to 60% is collected, the remainder moves to open dump sites, which have been associated to “early deaths, severe illness, and devalued quality of life.” There have been many complaints about this issue. Households afforded with government-run waste management services are obligatory to pay a once-a-month collection fee—as minute as around $1.10 and as much as $3.20. That's sensible for several Indonesians; nevertheless still almost 40% are living on less than $1.80 per day (adjusted for purchasing power). “We are building a system for management of garbage in communities,” Gamal Albinsaid said. He's the founder of the social enterprise Garbage Clinical Insurance. “It's a micro-health insurance program. Communities give garbage to us and pay a premium, about IDR 10,000 ($0.83). We convert the money to health fund and we give back to them in the form of health financing.” Basically, GCI collects, repurposes or disposes people's garbage at a cheaper-than-government rate and offers subscribers with “free” excellent health services, which consist of primary care at local clinics, family planning, nutrition consultations, in-school health advocacy, home visits for patients with chronic illnesses, and even telemedicine consultations with licensed doctors—rare in emerging markets. It's a welcome service in a country where, according to the World Bank, more than 75% of health care expenditures are paid for out-of-pocket. But it wasn't always simple. Albinsaid, 24, tried this project in 2010, but failed: “Premiums were very low, the system wasn't good. We modified, took a scientific approach. My team now has a good system for monitoring and tracking information, which makes it easy to replicate the system. "I have five clinics right now. At every clinic there are, maybe, 300 to 500 members. Some people go outside [for care], but we are always building sense of belonging from communities to our project." Four of GCI's clinics—typically open from 7am till 9pm—are in Malang. One clinic is in a village outside the city limits. These clinics are operated by a total of 88 volunteers and interns, 15 doctors, 12 nurses, and midwives. 47 staff members are paid with profits from the waste collection service. “They get standard payment in Indonesia,” Albinsaid said. “We're social entrepreneurs. We focus on social impact: how can we manage a health fund to improve a community, and make it sustainable? I'm looking for young people. They have big spirit and some of them don't care about the money first.” “Some doctors, some just come to us ... they want to work with us to develop this project." Both organic and non-organic garbage is accepted for collection. Organic waste is repurposed with the Takakura composting method. This is a process that purifies waste over fermentation - then then sold back to Indonesians as fertilizer: “We get a lot of money from fertilizer entrepreneurs.” Albinsaid said he can sell 1kg of fertilizer for IDR 5,000, or about $0.41. Non-organic waste is gathered, organized and sold to the Malang City garbage bank for recycling. The GCI team has anticipations to hold recycling themselves with extra program funding. Warning! These wastes are very harmful to health. This project is a little bit of modification in a big city. But Albinsaid said micro-health insurance is catching on in Indonesia, and fast, which is good because Indonesia's population could total 280 million by 2030 with more than 70% of Indonesians living in urban areas. “I have five clinics. But, honestly, the system is starting to replicate in other cities with other people. They have coordinated with us. We help them, we advise them, and we guide them guide them to start this project, but we make sure that community gets impact from the project.” AXIS Capital is a group of global insurer and reinsurer, providing clients and distribution partners with a broad range of specialized risk transfer products and services, i.e. health insurance that serves a host of industries and diverse coverage needs through our operating subsidiaries and branch offices in Bermuda, Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Singapore and the United States.
Hello, my name is Oscar and I am a fulltime student while working a fulltime job. I sleep more in my car than I do in my bed. I also spend more time on my tablets than anything else. My tablets allow me to do my homework and they also entertain me. When I’m not doing my school work im using my tablet to read or watch some movies but I mostly do work. I have two tablets, a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and a Nook HD+. I use my Note more often than my HD+ because it’s my daily carry but I enjoy the HD+ over the Note. I carry the note due to its ability to write. The tablet itself is atrocious, slow, and just awful to use but it has a stylus which I need to take notes. The tablet was sort of a gift so at least I didn’t spend any of my money but regardless of that fact I still feel like I over paid! On the other hand I love using my HD+ for reading because it has not only a great HD screen with the right dimensions, it has a great battery life. For this reason I use it for reading not only my textbooks, but my comic books and magazines. It just so happens that I was looking for a new tablet when I stumbled on an article regarding the Dell Venue 8 7000 and was awestruck. Now I have to clarify, it wasn’t the tablet that struck me (although it is pretty epic) but it was the fact that dell was putting this much effort into a tablet. The 7000 reminded me of the Huawei MediaPad X1 which is the tablet that I was looking to buy due to its aesthetics and great battery. So, what’s my idea? My idea is that Dell should make a tablet aimed at students. A slim yet powerful tablet designed to fulfill the needs of a student’s daily needs. I believe that the Dell Venue 8 7000 would fit the need if it had a few adjustments. HD 4:3 screen aspect ratio which would make it ideal for reading textbooks. Stylus support. Expandable Memory slot. Huge battery for long school and work days. Now these suggestions might not seem like much but for many like me it would mean the world. There are many apps on the android market that are designed to help us students out but they are useless without the proper hardware to run them on. I hope that my idea is at least considered even if my suggestions are ignored. At least that way I would feel like someone might create a product that would be of benefit for us.
If you were proceeding for an interview at a big City law firm in Jakarta Indonesia, it is doubtful you would turn up wearing sandals, swimming trunks and a tee shirt. Similarly, if you were going for an interview to be a Lifesaver for a beach in Bali Indonesia, it may come across as somewhat strange if you turned up for your interview in a pin striped suit and bowler hat. If it’s significant to shape your method for interviews, it is likewise vital when it comes to your CV. It is a usual mistake to rely on just one generic version of your CV for every application. How much the CV demands changing relies very much on your own situations? A professional looking to promote their career within a comparable role and industry may require twisting the CV for diverse applications. If you are a graduate or changing career then you will need to totally refocus the information in your CV to validate the right skills and qualities for altered career paths. Recruiters are more often than not time threaded and under pressure. It is consequently up to you the job hunter to make certain the information in your CV directly connects. The first thing the recruiter needs to see is that your CV is applicable to the role applied for and no deceit or hoax. This is where a Professional Profile comes into its own. This performs as your introduction and allows you to evidently position yourself in line with the job you are applying for. How many CV versions will one need? Think of your CV as growing like a tree. You begin with writing the main trunk version. Depending on how many career opportunities you are open to will then order the number of branch versions. For every branch you should tailor the CV for every separate application. At the very least you should try to mirror the language a particular employer uses to show empathy with their culture and values. Warning! For roles that call upon just a specific part of your expertise you will want to delete irrelevant points and detail further examples of appropriate achievements. You have just one opportunity to engage, enthuse and illicit a positive response. So, don’t leave it to chance. The scattergun approach using just one version of your CV for multiple applications is unlikely to hit the spot. By tailoring your CV for each application you are far more likely to be successful in getting interviews. So a little more work now means a lot less work in the future. Review your CV now! http://matthewnobles25.ucoz.com/blog/westhill_consulting_career_and_employment_australia_how_to_tailor_your_cv_to_get_more_interviews/2014-09-16-1

Zum Beispiel beim Packen Ihre Koffer für Ihren Familienurlaub könnte Sie zu viele persönliche Dokumente tragen. Consumer Reports empfiehlt, dass Sie Dinge wie Ihre Sozialversicherungskarte zu Hause lassen. Das ist Beratung, erzählt eine lokale Mutter Ruth zu Hilfe, die sie bereits verfolgt.

Warnung-Kreditkarten-Unternehmen über Reisen Vor der Reise sollten Sie auch Ihre Bank- oder Kreditkartendaten Emittenten vor der Reise lassen sie wissen, dass Sie unterwegs sind, nur für den Fall, dass ein fischig Kauf aufgeklappt, so dass sie die Einkäufe flag wird nicht aufrufen. Robin Riutta von Birmingham hatte vor kurzem eine ähnliche Situation mit ihr geschehen, zum Glück informiert sie ihre Kreditkarten-Unternehmen, wo sie wäre, und wenn sie wäre nach Hause. "Jemand erst vor kurzem hatte meines Mannes-Karte, aber zum Glück das Kreditkarten-Unternehmen angerufen und fragte uns ein paar Fragen und wir absolut nicht, sagte, es ist uns nicht." Vorsicht öffentliche WiFi Hinterhältig anders, die Betrüger Ihre Identität stehlen können umfasst die Verwendung von gefälschten WiFi-Netze. Wenn Sie in ein Hotel eingecheckt sind sicher, dass Sie überprüfen die Hotels-authorisierten-Netzwerk. Nie machen Sie persönliche Geschäfte auf einem ungesicherten öffentlichen WiFi. "Ich denke, es ist schrecklich, ich denke, daß an diesem Tag in Alter mit Technologie wie es ist, dass es etwas zu schützen, was wir online tun.", sagte Kristin Saracevic Trojas. Unechte Hotel Anrufe Auch in höchster Alarmbereitschaft sein, wenn Sie einen Anruf an der Rezeption Fragen für Kreditkarten-Informationen erhalten. Die Federal Trade Commission warnt, wenn ein Hotel wirklich hat ein Problem mit Ihrer Karte-Managern Fragen Sie an der Rezeption und das Problem von Angesicht zu Angesicht. Wenn Sie einen Anruf von jemandem, der sagt, dass sie an der Rezeption sind erhalten, sagen sie, Sie kommen an der Rezeption, und sie follow-up mit dem Management. Schützen Sie Ihre Kinder Identitäten zu! Auch Ihre Kinder sind nicht sicher vor Identitätsdiebstahl. Die FTC warnt Eltern sicherstellen, dass Ihr Kind Informationen sicher gespeichert werden, während sie unterwegs auf Lager oder ein Sommerprogramm sind. Als gefragt, wie Sie ihre Kinder sicher Mutter Kristin Saracevic hatte einige solide Ratschläge "Ich würde die Fragen, wo ist das jetzt? Einsperren Sie diese Informationen? Was ist Ihr Alarmsystem? Da nun Sie nie vorsichtig genug sein können." Es gibt nie eine gute Zeit, eine Pause von den Schutz Ihrer persönlichen Daten nehmen können Sie, sondern mit diesen Tipps ein wenig leichter beim Entspannen am Strand.

This really hurts customers who want to have a computer that you do not have to press the power button everytime, to just wake from sleep. I was so used to every desktop, laptop, I've owned to be able to wake from sleep/hiberation with a mouse click. Now this option is gone from later bios revisions and it is awful. Please Bring It Back!
Why don't Dell create a technical idea like Find My Mac or Find My Iphone to find Dell Laptop when it is lost by the theft. I think it will increase your revenue. As you see, a laptop is a big money with student. I can use software like Prey or Lockittigh but the theft can remove all window by using F12 boot option. I cannot set a password on boot menu because it can annoy me. On the other hand, if the theft cannot login window I cannot know where my laptop is. So I think if Dell want to increase your revenue in the next year. Dell would create an GPRS technique for Dell laptop
