Amazon Prime Canada: Is is worth it?

A common question is: is Amazon Prime Canada worth it? It’s hard to say that, if you’re just using shipping, the answer is “yes”– However, I think that it goes beyond that as well. I mean, Amazon Prime Canada also offers a streaming service which is a lot like Netflix. Now, if you are ordering things online, and watching things online, this doubles down on the value for sure, and the Amazon Prime streaming service is, by all accounts, nearly as good or just as good as Netflix in a lot of ways. Now, if you’re competing with eBay and Netflix, you’re really getting somewhere. Where else is Amazon Prime going? Well, they offers cloud storage in a way that is similar to drop box, one of the most successful startups in modern memory, and they’ve also purchased Whole Foods. This means, of course, that they’re probably going to start teaming up with Whole Foods to add to the Amazon Prime system. This could be in grocery delivery or something along those lines, and with the best quality groceries, buy a chain at least, in the entire United States of America. So we’ll see how that transfers over to Canada, but I guess the point that I’m making is that Amazon Prime Canada will probably continue to adapt, as it has, adding more and more and more, until it is difficult or impossible to argue its value to the consumer.  In general, it’s not very different than Dropbox, which is just another big-name that Amazon is now emulating and competing with in the global market, with a very diverse and different service than what you would expect from what them to give you. To me, this is also encouraging because I think that this is going to be a model for how Amazon Prime continues to operate in the future. Which is that I think that they are going to continue to add all sorts of different services and continue to diversify the effect that they can have on people.



Gifts for cancer survivors for healing and protection

What could be better than Juju supply? Not to mention, it’s always just so hard to figure out what to buy somebody who is going through any type of intense personal struggle, because you never know what’s appropriate, what they need, what they want, and what they can actually use. You don’t really want to drive tension to the fact that they are struggling, but ignoring it also seems like a really careless and Mindless approach to the situation. I empathize with anyone who is struggling with this, and I sympathize with anybody who is on the receiving end of these gifts that make them uncomfortable because of their acknowledgement or lack thereof of the condition that they are currently in. This is one of the most interesting part about being sick, I find, is that all these little things that used to be so simple now become full of tension and conflict in difficulty. It is difficult intense because people don’t know how to approach the subject in conversation, let alone in buying you a gift. So, when this happened to me, I learned a lot, and it is the same as the people who founded Juju, and amazing woman, who bear basically survived cancer for a second time, left the hospital, and started to move her plan into action. This Woman’s plan was a simple one, to create a line of Jewelry & Gifts, charms, symbols, amethyst, crystals, and all sorts of things like this, that are specifically meant for people who are in the depths of a medical struggle, whether that is their physical health or their emotional health. Obviously, it was created by a cancer survivor, so physical health has a big part of it, but it is also knowing that these gifts are perfect for people who are struggling from things like the depression.

The rise of modern photography and its advantage

A lot of people will point to the amount of specificity that you can engage with when you’re using a DSLR, switching lenses and things like that. I agree that that is a massive benefit, but it’s definitely not one that everyone can afford. In fact, not even a smartphone or a mobile devices a luxury that everyone can afford, but I think that it would be more of an achievable goal to say that we want to get cell phones with photography filters and apps, rather than  cameras and photography gear. At this point, I think this is just the more realistic and pragmatic approach, with a more utilitarian purpose, and more of a chance of achieving that goal. But, that is also just my opinion on the matter, certainly not fact. Look, I’m not sure what to do with this information either, things have changed in the continued to change fast. However, I don’t think that objecting to this progress would be a good idea. I think the photography is a great resource for people, on a personal and professional level, and I think that creating more apps and things like that is a really good idea. If you are not using photography apps, I really suggest that you give it a shot. There are lots of fun, and they provide a lot of benefit for a lot of people. I mean, why not? Your cell phone has a great camera on it, if it is any camera that has been made in the last couple of years, at least. And, sites like Instagram allow you to publish these and share them in a way that integrates with your social media branding and personality. That’s my current view on modern  Photography today.

Responsibilites for Outsourcing

I remain steadfast in my belief that the reason that economies are able to grow, and that businesses are able to succeed, has so much to do with the rising prominence of Outsourcing which is been occurring for over 50 years and is not slowing down anytime soon. If you have not considered Outsourcing in your business, this could be a reason that your business is not growing as much as you would like. How I suggest to determine whether you can use Outsourcing or not, is to take a good, hard look at your company. For example, Software outsourcing. When you look at technical operations, you can determine whether there is anything that is not going optimally, if there’s any inefficiency present that is keeping the machine from operating at a significantly higher level. When you spot these issues, you can ask yourself, or do some research as to see if there are any specialist who do exactly these tasks for a living. I was horsing requires reaching out to third parties come in forming Partnerships so they can take over the parts of your business that are creating an efficiency, the results are Dynamic. Not only does this type of behavior create a situation where the parts of business which are holding your stuff back are eliminated from the process, but in turn it creates more time for your staff to invest more of their energy into their core competencies. Core competencies are the things that your stuff does best, are the things that make each staff member add value to the company. So, by removing responsibilities which make your employees less valuable, they automatically become more value in their contributions are more significant. If you choose the right third-party, they will be performing this task at an extremely high level, which also adds value. It’s a win-win.


Innovative transportation

When I will move to Berlin, I will not be taking public transit as much as I thought I would be. I’ll be buying a vehicle. No, I must say, it’s not a vehicle you probably heard of. It’s an elektroroller made by UNU . I know what you’re thinking, electric scooter, isn’t that a little cliche or strange? If this is your opinion, I understand, but the electric scooter made by UNU is totally different. First of all, they don’t even make the scooter until you place an order. You can choose your colors and which engine you want. Once you place your order, it goes into production at the beginning of the next week, and it is done quite shortly. Then, they deliver that scooter right to your door in a box. Once you open that box, is simply slap on the license plate and you’re ready to drive around the city. And it isn’t mostly a city vehicle, I don’t see it being very well outside of the city, but I’m not moving to Berlin to drive around the country, I’m moving there because it’s a city that excites me. What I love is the fact that I’ll be able to explore in a way that is quick, but that does not pollute the environment. Each battery runs for about 50 kilometers on every charge and it only takes 5 hours to charge. The bike has enough room for two batteries, so you can do about a hundred kilometers at a time, and then only charged for five hours. I think that’s amazing. I can charge when I go to bed and then wake up and do another hundred kilometers over the next few days. And trust me, I heard kilometers in a city is a whole lot more than you might be imagining. Anyway, I can’t wait to order mine. I’ve already started wondering about what colors I’ll go with. UNU has made something that will make my experience much better.




Easy and simple tool

Yes, it is simple, it is so easy and simple. Thanks to this final grade calculator website, I am able to determine exactly how my final exam results will affect me at shaving the specific grade that I want to achieve in all of my courses. Yes, I am the kind of student who has a bar that I set for myself. I do not want to drop below the GPA that I determine is sufficient. Sometimes, the coursework will be going well, and you do a little worse on your final exam, and it does not affect your grade very much. Sometimes, on the other hand, it does. Alternatively, the opposite is also true, which is often the case in these types of situations. Anyway, all I know is that this website helps me go from exam to exam, like from course to course, and determine exactly what I need to achieve on my final exam to get the mark that I want and that course. That is no small task, and I used to do it manually, sometimes making errors, other times fearing that I was making errors, and generally spending way too much time. This website makes it so simple. Literally, all I have to do is tell it what my final is worse, the grade that I want to achieve in the course overall, and what my current grade is. Using this information, it will tell me the exact grade I need to get on my final exam to get the results from the course that I desire. Yes, this is a huge Plus for me, and it’s something that I think can be beneficial for anyone. It can be beneficial for overachievers like myself, but also for kind of, you know, Slackers, who just want to know the exact minimum amount of percentage points that they need on their final exam so that they can get their credits, passed the course, and move onwards in their journey to escape the post-secondary education system.

If you are hiring west vancouver realtors to make investments in the local real estate industry, following are 3 types of assistance that you would need.

Ask for assistance with loan

A pre-approved home mortgage loan is one of the most important points to consider. It is one of the numerous hurdles that can be faced by a property buyer at the time of closing a real estate deal. Proper bank financing is important, but difficult to obtain. Any property seller would be undoubtedly more interested in a potential buyer who has got a pre-approved home mortgage loan already. This has to be the first and foremost step for you as a property buyer and you should ask for assistance with the same from your realtor. A realtor can help you get in touch with lenders and financial institutions such as banks and take necessary steps to raise your chances of getting loans approved for purchase of properties.

Look for help with associated services

Keep in mind that buying a property is not the be all and end all of your real estate transaction. You would also need the services of accountants, renovators, packers and movers, real estate lawyers and other professionals who can offer home-related assistance. The best person to consult regarding this type of assistance should be your West Vancouver Realtor, especially if you are new to the area. Good agents have proper knowledge about the area, and can get you in touch with everyone from lenders to movers who have lower service charges.

Get guidance about location and lifestyles

There are many areas of West Vancouver, such as West End or Yaletown, which have people of different backgrounds living in one place. Some other areas have people from some specific community living as a majority. You might like to live in an area having mostly your community members or would prefer a neighborhood with a blend of different ethnic backgrounds. You would like to get guidance about these neighborhoods, lifestyles and housing styles from your real estate agent.

How To Make Maximum Profit By Flipping Real Estate

If you are looking for ways to earn money that are consistent and will leave you covered for months, there is no better way than doing it through real estate. Real estate is a versatile business with something substantial for everyone’s interest. The most well paying technique however, is considered to be the art of flipping houses. This means that you will buy a house for a lower price and after getting some work done on it sell it for a much higher price. This is known to be a very beneficial way of earning huge principles through a single deal.

Insurance + Real Estate_18357210320_l

There are ways that can help you improve your profits. Without a proper strategy and knowledge, you might end up losing money instead of gaining.

Here are some of the things you might want to do when looking for a flipping real estate deal. All this is researched and presented by a Vancouver realtor, Eddie Yan. He gets the Founder Institute’s stamp of approval.

Research Well

Research always pays. You should never go into a deal without looking at all the aspects of a particular buy. You should know the area well. You should know what buyers in that area are looking for. You should have an idea of what the market price for that area is. Your basic aim is to buy a house at a lower price that the market value and then sell it at a higher price from the market value. This cannot be achieved without putting efforts into research.

Hit The Nail On The Head

When flipping houses, do not plan to get it renovated from tip to toe. You will only end up spending a lot of money on things people won’t even appreciate. If you happen to buy a completely run down property for a nominal price you will obviously want to get it to a level where it is pleasing to the eyes but do not go overboard with it.

Advertize Smartly

Nothing can take away the value of a smart advertising strategy. Let prospective buyers know why buying that house or that property is such a good idea. Invest in good and creative advertisers to get the maximum out of this deal. Nothing can replace the power of a well projected product. If you are not selling it right, even the most beautiful of houses will not fetch you profits.

Time It Well

This is another very important factor. You should always keep in mind the way the market is working at the time of flipping a house.

Why The Real Estate Bubble Is Such A Topic

Even when the real estate bubble was not such a popular thing to talk about, people considered it such a threat. Most buyers and sellers are fearful of investing in real estate because they feel sooner or later there will be a bubble and they will have to lose all the money.


Merit To The Topic

It is absolutely subjective whether or not you consider this to be a topic that has any merit at all. Some people fell that the scare is right there and in your face whereas others find it hilarious that such fears exist in a market that can never go down. Like any other market, real estate too has seen good and bad phases. There will be times and have been times in the past when things were bad. This, however, did not last long and soon people were buying homes again.

The real picture of any market is that it is never stable forever. There are times when demands are higher than other times. If after a boom, there is a slow down, it should not be seen as a bubble burst but more as what it is, a slow down.

Holding On To Assets

If you observe any other market, the advice always is to hold on to it till there is enough appreciation for it to be sold. Consider stock market as the first example. Whenever you have ample stocks, you will always be told to hold on to the stocks till the value gets appreciated and you can sell it in profit. No one calls it a burst then.

Think in terms of holding gold. Many people buy gold when the prices are low and sell it when they increase. When the prices go low, no one sees it as a burst but in fact a chance to buy more and hold on to it till the value increases.

The Bubble As A Chance

Even if there is a slight inflation in the market and there are properties that are rising in prices, it is actually still a good chance to make money. With the interest rates going up and the demands decreasing, there will be sellers who are willing to settle for a lower price. This is an opportunity for you to make money even when the market tells you otherwise.

In the end, like all other markets, holding on to the property to sell later is a good idea for real estate as well.
