Twitter


Twitter is an in thing now days. Twitter is a combination of these various forms of communication, but its primary difference is that posts, or tweets, are restricted to 140 characters or less. As a Twitter user you can post updates, follow and view updates from other users
The quantity of followers decides your importance, Following someone simply means receiving their Twitter updates.   When you follow someone, every time they post a new message, it will appear on your Twitter home page.  New messages are added to your home page as people post them, so you always get the updates in real time.  When you log in, you can see what the latest updates are.  Twitter offers other ways to follow people too: you can get updates from certain people on your phone!
 There is an easy way to get more Twitter followers; you put your Twitter user name on a twitter business card. I found a website that has custom business card backgrounds, which are professional and attractive. The custom backgrounds cover various types of businesses. I found one business card that would be ideal for a web designer.

Some of the other business cards on this site were those for an attorney, teacher, medical professional, and a mommy card, to mention only a few. I found these custom business backgrounds cards along with Christmas cards, wedding invitations and many more.
 
If you are in online business. Twitter is really important. You can share updates with your followers

Bye Bye 'Z'

Soon we will have 25 alphabets in english language. English alphabet will be lose Z on June 1st. The announcement came from the English Language Central Commission (ELCC).


After carefully considering and debating the matter for over two years, the ELCC came to the conclusion that the letter “Z” should be removed from the English alphabet. The main objective of this change is to simplify the phonetic aspect of the language, and to unify the American and British spellings.

What will happen to the words that have the letter “z” in them? It depends on the word. According to the ELCC, words that started with a “z” will now start with an “x”.

Examples include:
zero becomes xero

Words that featured a “z” with the “s” sound, on the other hand, will now be officially written with the “s” (i.e., unifying the American and British spelling).

Examples include:
visualize becomes visualise

Let this change bring in US and UK vocabulary more close.

I had a tough time making a US Dollar draft to confirm my AIM admission. Few pointers to help people making the draft .

1. The Foreign exchange is open only till 3.30 pm, Do if you to bank around 3 or latter, don't accept to get the draft the same day.
2. Carry tour ID proof and College offer letter along with you.
3. Be ready to fill a 10+ page declaration/form.
4. Many branches don't have foriegn exchange, do call them and inquire before going, I had been to three banks before getting the correct branch.
5. Its better to get a draft from the bank in which you have account, the charges will be less. In ICICI bank they took 250+ S.T
6. Meet the bank manager directly, the work gets done faster.
Attaching a picture to help you understand better.

Get a good shutter

It is essential to deal with sunlight successfully, whether you want to protect the house from it or enhance its effects. Another thing to be said about sun is that its light varies in intensity during different times of day - less intense in the morning, blazing heat in the midday and quite strong until the dusk. 

But when your house is in the harsh climate all you think about is how to hide away from sun which is everywhere. Do not waste anytime, learned to use lot of materials to protect the house from the sun, such as glass of different colors and exterior shutters

This is why we should plan bedrooms and nurseries to face north-east, this way they would get most of the sun light in the mornings. Isn't it a great feeling to wake up to the first rays of morning sun? 

Glass of different colors blocks sun very well, exterior shutters around windows are also efficient and effective embrasures on the windows take all the heat so none enters the house. 
The website has many shutters like  Authentic Wood Shutters, Shutter Hardware, Mid-America Vinyl Shutters
 Atlantic Premium Composite Shutters, PlacerCraft Polymer Shutters, Rockbridge Composite Shutters,
 Dura-Prene Vinyl Shutters, Gable Vents / Louvers and

Costs that are not directly related directly to the type and quantity of products produced. A type of fixed cost.
Number of employees can be directly proptional to productivity,
Depends on overheads,if they have excess employees

 Then 1.If just costs thenReduce Retirement Benefits by 30% is the best option as it affects the morale of employees the least.


 Most -ve feedback is Lay off 10% of the lower performers
