So cute!

I didn't realize these pets could fit in almost anything until i saw this video.  Aren't they adorable?  It seems they got stretchable bodies, especially the cats, that let them slide in and out so easily in any hole.  Watch how they do it!

Quality Control Should Enhance Your Business

While a janitorial quality control software can help you maintain a schedule and provide suggestions on what to look for, only you can decide how to use the information that you gain from a quality assurance tour. Most companies use quality control as a threat. Everyone knows when the head honchos are going to show up, so they put their very best foot forward to impress those at the top. Unfortunately, this doesn’t do anything to improve the actual quality of the product or service they offer. It isn’t just the knowledge that the higher ups are coming; it is also the knowledge that if something is wrong, the person or persons responsible will get yelled at or reprimanded. It’s like having a test in school. Instead of using the test as a teaching opportunity, it is used as a blunt force instrument to batter people into compliance.


The last thing that you want to do as a company is set up a minimum standard. While it sounds good on paper, the minimum standard will always be met and never exceeded. That means that when people fail, they will not meet the minimum standard, they will fall below it. Standards are all about expectations, and people will be as poor, or mediocre, or great as you expect. Set low expectations and they will be met.

In some ways, quality assurance is the same as the expectations you set. When your crew knows that you are coming, they will make sure to do everything in the best way possible. They will slack off again once the test is over. In some situations, this will work okay because items will get repaired that might otherwise have been left broken. However, wouldn’t you rather that the items have been fixed without you having to do a quality check? A janitorialquality control software can set up a schedule for you to do checks, and it can even offer a checklist for your team, but it is up to you to make sure that your team is performing excellently every day on the job.

Powerful voices .....

Today is my eldest daughter birthday and I get so nostalgic in times like this.  I wish i could spend the special day with her but we are miles away.  Anyway, instead of sulking in the corner, i spent my day listening to music.  One of the videos that caught my attention is this video of the great voices of Filipinos in Kuwait.  This is also one of my favorite songs these days.

Three Things You Should Know before Signing a Lease

Long before you ever start school, it is important to take a trip and search for LA Tech housing. When you are looking for a place to live, make sure you take the time to find out important rental policies before you make a commitment to a particular apartment. You have the right to screen your housing for good policies. Following are three areas to check before signing a lease:

·         Policies regarding rent, deposits, and fees
·         Process for reporting and handling complaints
·         Policies regarding cats, dogs, or other pets

Rent, Deposits, and Fees

Paying rent sounds like a straight-up situation. However, there are many details that can affect your rent. For instance, some complexes will give a discount if you pay rent for an entire semester or an entire year. If you want to take advantage of a situation like this, make sure you find out what happens if you decide to move early. You might forfeit your rent, or you might be subject to a hefty breakage-of-contract fee. If you are paying your rent on a monthly basis, be sure to learn whether or not they have a grace period, what late fees they will charge, and how the late fees will be calculated.

Deposits are also handled differently from apartment to apartment. You can expect to pay a security deposit, but the amount that is refundable will vary. Some landlords will charge a flat fee to clean the carpets, blinds, and furniture. Other landlords base the refund solely on the condition of the apartment when you move.

Handling Complaints

The nature of living in an apartment means that you will have to deal with many other individuals’ lifestyles. Most of the time, there is no issue. But sometimes, neighbors and roommates can cause problems. Ask the landlords what types of problems they get involved with, how to register complaints, and what their policies are for resolving the complaints.

Cats, Dogs, or Other Pets

If you have a pet, you will need to find LA Tech housing that accepts pets. Be sure you completely understand their pet policies before you sign the lease. If you bring a pet into the apartment without authorization, you could be breaking your contract and be charged a breakage-of-contract fee.

Tips for Making an Effective Ad

Advertising is very important for anyone who wants to get their word out there. However, advertising does not accomplish anything unless the ad itself is effective. You can try using the things that an ad agency would usually use to make an effective ad. Consider the following bits of advice as you think about designing an ad that will do exactly what you want it to do.

Designing an Ad

When you design an ad, you want to keep it simple. An ad that is too complicated or has too much going on will not attract the attention of people or influence them at all. When it comes to advertising, less is often more. Use bright colors that stand out and catch people’s attention. Use large print that can easily be read by those with bad vision or from far away. When you do use print, say whatever you need to say in the shortest words possible. It should not require a lot of effort from people to look at your advertisement and see what it is saying.

You will need to come up with a tagline that is catchy and meaningful. It should be relevant to your company, service, or product. This is what people remember later on when they think about the ad. You can also help the ad catch people’s attention by being funny or shocking. A clever advertisement will do great things because people will both notice it and remember it. They may even talk to others about it later. This requires thinking outside the box and coming up with something innovative.

Getting Help

When you need a lot of help from your advertisements, you may not want to trust amateurs to design an ad for you. Hiring an ad agency to come up with a particular ad or an entire campaign for you can be very helpful in getting what you need, and will often give you a great return on your input. Those working at ad agencies know what they are doing, because it is the only thing they do. They can give you some great input.

Man born without arms .....

Most of us are lucky in so many ways.  We are lucky to have complete parts of our body.  Can you imagine yourself  losing any part like an arm for instance?  It must be tough.  Here is a man born without arms and yet he is able to do what most of us can't do or don't want to do.  Of course we are all capable of doing this. I believe that nothing is impossible under the heat of the sun.  But, isn't he an inspiration to people who are physically challenged?  Watch this!
