Space Travel in The Next Decade
Space travel has been predicted to really kick off in the coming years as governments and important role players start to visualise the importance of settling on other planets, and mining on distant asteroids. The belief is that in the next decade we will start seeing private commercial interests move toward the vastness of space because of the presence of rare and important minerals on asteroids that circle earth and the solar system.
5 Ways to manage quarter-life crisis?
I wonder which one is worse between quarter-life and mid-life crisis? The majority of the people I coach are quarter-lifers (i.e. people between the ages 20 and 30). What always strikes me most about the majority of these young people is that they seem to be more hectic and stressed instead of enjoying their youth. Well, some of the quarter-lifers do have valid reasons to be stressed. For example, two of the young people that I coach had to stop studying because their parents could not afford to pay for school this year. What hurt the most is that they were about to do the final year. We tried every avenue to get them funding but unsucceful. For all those of you who managed to get an opportunity to study make sure to give it your best.
Mobile Generation and IT Opportunity
Did you know that the market for mobile electronic devices continues to grow? Recent statistics were just released regarding the shipment of electronic devices worldwide in the year 2016. Of course these are only predictions, but the facts are overwhelming. Many experts believed that numbers would decline post-2015. Their presumption was based on the fact that almost everyone living in developed nations had access to smart phones and other smart electronics, and would therefore not be spending as much on the same technology in 2016.
How to Be a Confident Researcher
Confidence is never really taught to any of us. It is always assumed that we know how to be confident. Before walking into an interview for a new position or walking into a test venue to write an exam, we’re always told by our peers and mentors “be confident”. Unfortunately, there is no easy way of becoming a more confident person. Confidence is definitely a result of years of morale-affecting circumstances and situations that either make a person more positive about a situation, and therefore more likely to expose these emotions to the people around them, or increasingly negative.
The Logistical Landscape of South Africa
Logistics is an important part of the supply chain. Some would argue that it is the most important part, for without logistics the product would never reach the consumer. Production would prove wasteful and a great loss in both time and capital. Logistics management is especially important in South Africa, where much of our domestic product is intended for markets that lie out of country. Valuable minerals found in rich South African seams are sold overseas to the highest bidder, so it is crucial that the logistics network is established so as to effectively get the product moving.
