Equal Rights – Truth and Mythunderstanding

Equal treatment under the law is a foundational precept of the United States provided in the Constitution for all citizens. There has been perpetrated upon the United States a myth about what equal rights means. We have either been deceived or have been teaching a flawed message for decades.In the United States we have a right to equal treatment under the law; not in education, not in housing and not in healthcare. Equality under the law and equality of personhood create the very heartbeat of the Declaration of Independence.Entitlements of Person-hoodWhere did we go wrong? How has this error continued to grow, resulting in an entire garden of mythical rights? The problem centers on the issue of equal rights of personhood.All people have an equal right to relationship with God. He is not a respecter of persons; there is no hierarchy in His eyes. Every one of us has the same right to call Jesus ‘Lord’, and enter into the family as children with equal status in the Kingdom.The imbalance in the concept of equality in personhood has grown in direct correlation to the disappearance of the concept of relationship with the God of the Bible. The two legs upon which equality balanced were the law and relationship with God. When the leg representing our Creator was kicked away, issues of inequality started appearing in the headlines.An attempt to restore balance has been built upon the myth that the government can bestow equal rights of personhood. It cannot. The Declaration of Independence speaks clearly on this subject. Such rights are “endowed by our Creator.”Scriptural EqualityJesus gives perfect instruction on this very point in the fifth chapter of Matthew. All are equal under the law; an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. He marries each example of what is provided for under Law, and with what a Christian is to do in addition to the Law.The law of our land cannot be specific to any one doctrine or denomination. The founders knew that the United States would never be a nation of homogenous Christians. The law must apply to all, as do the remedies or punishments it requires. Christians, however, have a greater responsibility when they deal with each other.Equality of personhood will remain an unfulfilled dream until we bust the myth of how these rights are bestowed. True and lasting balance cannot be restored until we return to the God of the Bible for support.

Symptoms and Diseases Related With HIV AIDS

HIV/AIDS is often referred to as a silent epidemic because of its long incubation period. It means the disease may have infected a person for years already without any concrete symptoms. A person who is positive for HIV/AIDS may even infect other persons with this illness if he/she is unaware of his/her own condition.The infection of HIV can be divided into various phases. However, in most cases, these phases are hard to discern from one another. The health of the infected person is actually dependent on the immune system of the individual which may also dictate the complications that might take place.These days, HIV/AIDS is considered a chronic disease since an infected person may live for several more years due to the benefits of antiretroviral therapy. While the symptoms of HIV/AIDS are really hard to determine, below are some of the common things that happen to those who are infected by HIV/AIDS:
Oral thrush
Recurrent herpes infections
Fever of unknown origin
Persistent cough
Weight loss. Those with HIV/AIDS can be observed to lose weight along the way since their immune system has been affected
Fatigue. Most HIV/AIDS patients experience fatigue also because of the effects on their immune system
Bacterial skin infections
Night sweats
Patients who are more advanced in the disease experience major problems due to opportunistic infections or cancers, such as:
Cerebral toxoplasmosis
Pneumocystis pneumonia
Cytomegalovirus infection of retina or gut
Disseminated Mycobacterium avium infection
Kaposi’s sarcoma which is a rare form of skin cancer
DementiaHIV/AIDS can be a very deceiving illness since a patient may remain very healthy for a long time with no symptoms at all although the virus is progressively destroying his immune defenses. This is what makes it hard to diagnose early. There are cases when the patients would be diagnosed when they are almost at the terminal phase making it really difficult to reconstitute, even partially, the immune system. With this, there is an apparent need to raise the awareness of the public about this disease. This disease is such a traitor and may infect other without them knowing it. The information of this disease must be widely spread especially among poor countries where the disease is rampant.

Improve Technology ROI: Focus on People

Buzzwords are great. They give us an excuse to nod our heads, act like we are paying attention, and then completely ignore issues without giving them a second thought. As long as we use buzzwords we appear (if only to ourselves) to know what’s going on and we are on top of the challenge at hand. Perhaps the greatest part of working in technology is that we are never at a loss for buzzwords, or for meetings in which to use them.Three of the greatest buzzwords in the tech arena are “People, Process, and Technology”. Throw in a few other favorites, such as “alignment,” “change,” “culture,” and… well, you get the idea. While these words are more ubiquitous in a technology discussion than fish are in the sea, they are often overlooked, misunderstood, and generally ignored. This is dangerous.Looking over the landscape of a typical IT implementation we notice that the majority of activities are focused on process and technology. We spend tremendous amounts of time and effort defining business processes and specifying functional system requirements. We focus a large amount of time building and testing the technology. Consequently most of the people involved in IT projects are specialists in strategy, process, and technology.So what is missing? Look closely. Did you notice the vast majority of our activities, and the majority of our team’s skills, are focused on aligning process and technology? What happened to our first buzzword, “People”? Do we just nod our heads and forget to consider our people – how we can move them (that is, align them) with the process and technology? What does it mean to align people with process and technology?Aligning PeopleFor some, aligning people means providing training so employees know how to use the system. Others say you need to include communications to align their people. Some advanced organizations even extend their efforts to include mapping out changes to job descriptions and responsibilities.While these are all important activities to help achieve alignment of people, process and technology, they don’t actually help us understand what alignment is. And if you don’t know what it is, how do you know when you have achieved it?Alignment only occurs when your people, process and technology all perform together in a symbiotic relationship that delivers the desired results. The people use the technology. The people follow the process. They key here is that the people must actually use the technology and the people must actually follow the process. This requires people, ALL of the people, change their behavior to achieve the desired results.Focus on Behavior Change to Improve ROI”Did he just say our technology project needs to focus on changing people’s behavior? I thought we were implementing technology, not disciplining children or providing group therapy. What is all this behavior talk anyway?”Consider the relationship between user behavior and return on investment (ROI). When do we actually realize ROI from our technology projects? Is it when the technology is delivered? Sadly, no. We only realize our ROI when the people actually use the technology. If a system is delivered, but not used, it does not return any value to the organization. So, while successfully deploying the technology is on the critical path (pardon the gratuitous use of the buzzword) to achieving ROI, the critical path is only completed when the system is used effectively by our people.Sounds pretty straightforward, right? Wrong. This simple idea has tremendous implications that require advanced thought. It means we need to rethink how we structure technology projects, who we involve in the process, and how we define success. Looking back over the landscape of a typical IT implementation we notice activities focusing on behavior change are conspicuously missing. Worse still, people with skills and expertise in behavior change are typically not even part of the implementation team. This is the problem.Example: User Behaviors’ Impact on ROI and on the Customer ExperienceI worked with a client who did very little to drive desired behavior when implementing a new CRM system. As expected, they had numerous behavior problems that reduced their ROI and degraded the customer experience. Sales reps did not see “what’s in it for me”, so they would often not use the system at all or they would only enter partial, inaccurate customer data. Customer service reps would not reliably create problem tickets, nor would they regularly update their progress on resolving customer issues. Managers would not use the system to track progress or to analyze department performance.The impact to the organization and to the customers experience was severe. The organization wasted vast amounts of time and effort performing unnecessary tasks, such as tracking down information that was not entered by one individual but was required by others to perform their jobs. The lack of complete and accurate data made it impossible for management to utilize the system reports to make reliable, informed decisions. Executives and sales reps were unable to review vital customer activity data to prepare for additional sales meetings. The customers experience was degraded by delays resulting from having to repeat conversations that were not properly logged in the system.It was only after the client had experienced these problems for quite some time that management decided to address user behavior. After users changed and demonstrated desired behavior, the system delivered significant value and the customer experienced improved. Had management proactively focused on driving desired behavior earlier they would have avoided the period of poor performance and significantly increased their overall ROI from the start. Defining Project “Success”How is “success” typically defined for a technology project? Projects are often judged successful if they are delivered on time and on budget. While delivering on time and on budget are indeed causes for celebration, do they fully define success? How often do we actually go back and measure our results, our realized ROI, against the forecasted return defined in the business case that justified the project? If we deliver on time but never achieve the forecasted ROI are we really successful?This reveals several important questions. Who actually owns ROI? Who is responsible for ensuring we actually change user behavior and realize our anticipated ROI? What are the consequences for not achieving forecasted ROI? We need to stop defining success at the midpoint of the critical path (delivering technology) and shift our focus to the end of the critical path, achieving effective system use that delivers ROI.How do we Change User Behavior?So, how do we do we change user behavior?First, we realize people are unpredictable. Unlike process flows or lines of code (which are linear, logical and controllable), people are wildcards. They do not always act rationally or predictably. They can be influenced and encouraged, but they cannot be controlled. Is it any wonder that even though we define a very clear logical process and system that it is not always used as intended? So, how do we compensate for the unpredictable and uncontrollable? Who can help us do this?To address these challenges, we need to learn more about people and how to influence their behavior. Expanding our knowledge of individuals to include an understanding of personality types, communication processes, conflict styles, individual motivation and learning styles gives us many tools for improving our ability to change behavior.Of course, we do not work in isolation. We work in small and large groups, which have their own unique characteristics and processes. People behave differently in groups than they do alone. We need to understand more about interpersonal relationships, group dynamics, and creating and managing high performing groups. We need to understand how trust, honesty and ethics impact group behavior and how we can use this knowledge to create an environment that drives desired behavior.Moreover, individuals and groups do not operate in a vacuum; they operate in the context of a larger organizational system. We need to understand the impact organizational forces have on individual and group behavior, and then align these forces to drive desired behavior. Can we realistically expect people to behave in one way (like, use our system as designed) if there are major organizational forces that drive them to behave in another way?Who Can Help?This may all sound exhausting and impossible but there are people who can help: Human Resource (HR) and Organization Development (OD) professionals.These two groups have complimentary skill sets that are perfect for helping us align organizational forces and drive desired user behavior. HR professionals have the skills necessary to put together appropriate performance evaluation, feedback and development plans. OD professionals are trained in conducting holistic organizational analysis and in designing appropriate interventions to facilitate the desired change.Do we really need OD and HR people? Can’t we use our current project team? No! IT people do not have the required skills – their expertise lies in technology. Strategy people typically are not qualified either. The knowledge and skills they possess to develop business cases, process flows, and ROI forecasts are very different from that required to change user behavior.To align “people” with process and technology we actually need to rely on professionals with expertise in “people” issues – HR and OD experts. But how do they fit within the development lifecycle and when do we include them in the development process?A Better Approach to IT Projects We often assume that if we teach people what to do then they will act as instructed. But, what if the problem is not just that they don’t know how to use the system? What if they can’t or won’t use the system for other reasons?Imagine you are sick and you go to the doctor. He doesn’t just say hello, shake your hand and then give you an operation. Instead the doctor asks you some questions, runs some test, gets x-rays and inspects your body. Only after he has gathered data and made an informed diagnosis does he develop treatment plans. A (somewhat) similar approach is appropriate for IT implementations.Current efforts to promote user adoption that only include delivering training and communication are akin to the doctor skipping the data gathering and just reaching for the scalpel when you walk in the door. Wouldn’t it be better if we gather some data, diagnose what drives user behavior in our organization and then put together an appropriate treatment plan? That is exactly what we should do.We begin by gathering data from multiple sources, at multiple levels in the organization, in order to triangulate and identify the major forces driving user behavior. Once this is done and our diagnosis complete, we put together a treatment plan, that is, determine appropriate actions (called OD “interventions”) to promote user adoption. Interventions may be conducted at multiple points in time: project start-up, during development, at go-live and at multiple intervals following system deployment.Example: Structuring a Project to Drive User BehaviorSo, how will this work? At the start of the project an OD consultant leads the project team (IT and business SMEs) in group development work and helps them mature into a highly productive work team. The consultant also helps IT and business agree on a definition of project success and a plan for sharing responsibility for measuring and achieving ROI at various points after go-live.The consultant then gathers data to identify the organizational factors that drive user adoption. He conducts interviews across all levels of the organization, conducts focus groups with representatives from several user departments, surveys employees, and reviews various documents such as strategic plans and job descriptions. The consultant then facilitates leaders and business representatives in reviewing the data, diagnosing the situation, and developing an intervention strategy. Finally, interventions are held prior to go live (to prepare users for the change), during the first few weeks of the deployment (to assist users during the change) and at multiple scheduled review points (to help users continue to grow by identifying lessons learned and by sharing best practices across the organization).Including HR and OD professionals in IT projects is critical for aligning people, process and technology. Conducting an organizational analysis, and more importantly, involving people in the process, helps drive desired behavior. It allows us to make sure we are investing our efforts in conducting appropriate interventions and in addressing the “right” issues. The time and effort required to drive desired user behavior delivers significant value through improved system use, faster realization of ROI and an improved customer experience.Final ThoughtsThe next time you are planning an IT project, ask yourself if you are doing enough to address the “people” issues. Are you focusing on promoting user adoption and achieving ROI or are you just focusing on delivering the technology? How much would you increase ROI if you improved user adoption of the system? Do you have skilled HR and OD people helping you drive success? Do you have the right skills and understanding of individual behavior and group development processes to effectively address the “people” issues?Is there anything you COULD and SHOULD be doing to align people, process and technology?

SEO Companies Outsourcing SEO Offshore?

It’s funny that most of our clients are SEO companies from the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Yet they have the guts to call themselves SEOs when they barely do the SEO work. I’m not writing this article to intentionally malign any SEO company.It’s just that there are several negative publicity written and published about offshore SEOs which are not true. What’s worse is that these articles are written by SEO companies from the US, UK, Canada and Australia aimed at discrediting offshore SEOs. Ironically, these SEO companies are known to have outsourced SEOs in the Philippines and India. And still, on their blogs and published articles, they generalize that the offshore companies are incompetent!It is true that outsourcing your SEO offshore comes with risks much like when you pick a company within your city, state or country. There will always be fraudulent companies offshore but this is also true to SEO companies in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Risks are inevitable part of search engine optimization. In fact, results from SEO campaigns are highly uncertain because no one knows the exact formula on how search engine algorithms work. Your campaign may succeed or fail depending on various factors.Why SEO Companies in the US, UK, Canada and Australia Outsource SEO OffshoreApparently, cost is the main reason why outsourcing SEO is a popular strategy even for SEO companies. It costs twice as much to keep an American SEO than when you hire a Filipino SEO specialist to do the same job. Both countries have different cost of living, which explains the disparity in income but both SEOs are expected to do the same work and achieve the same result – top placements on the major search engines.Competition has driven SEO businesses in the US, UK, Canada and Australia to outsource offshore. With the way the global economy is doing right now, it’s not surprising that economic retrenchment has become a top priority for companies all over the world. Consequently, price or cost was catapulted as the main consideration when companies decide which outsourcing company to choose. Moreover, outsourcing companies cut-back on their expenses and explore their options for a cheaper business operation. Outsourcing offshore seems to be the only viable solution so they could keep up with the competition. Their competitors are already outsourcing, some if not all of their operations, to gain cost advantage so why shouldn’t they?I really don’t have a problem with SEOs outsourcing SEO services offshore. Although they are more of an SEO reseller than an SEO company, they are still helpful in the operations of SEOs offshore because they provide them with additional jobs. What is not right is for them to destroy the reputation of SEO businesses offshore to create a mentality that they are the better option and that offshore SEO companies are a bunch of thugs.

How to Acquire Life Insurance Quotes

There are many kinds of life insurance policies that can be purchased online catering to different sets of needs on the basis of budget and coverage, Go through these policies in detail to assess them properly. Each type of policies has it its own pros and cons, so a detailed study could provide very good clarity when it comes to selecting a suitable life insurance policy.The Internet is a rich medium through which you can attain highly competitive quotes for insurance policies at attractive and cheap rates. First analyze the profile and needs of your own family and decide on the budget you are ready to allocate for your insurance policy.With so many types of life insurance quotes available, it is crucial to first be able to distinguish one from the other before comparing their prices. Once you have done that the process is quite simple. Go online and fill up a simple form after which you will be contacted by local agents, who are part of nation wide network of insurance professionals. They will offer you free insurance quotes at highly competitive prices and you can take whole process forward from there on.Types of policies available to the investor Term Life Insurance This form of insurance policy is aimed at providing the investor with temporary coverage and is one the cheapest forms of policies available in the market.Whole Life InsuranceThis form of insurance policy offers permanent coverage to the investor at guaranteed premium rates. This means that the rates do not change over a set period of time with cash value accumulating over the life period of the policy.Variable Universal Life insurance This form of insurance offers much greater cash value than whole life but requires the insurer to indulge in some investment options. This brings with it a fair amount of risk to table but can be a worthwhile option for those people who are good at making meaningful investments.Lets now look at the three types of insurance policies in greater detail.Term life Insurance vs Permanent life Insurance Pros of Term Life InsuranceThis is one of the cheapest forms of insurance policies available. For a 45 year old person in very good overall health and non smoker can avail a policy of 30 years coverage as part of a million dollar deal. The costs for this would be approximately $200 a month.This kind of policy is easy to understand and not very complicated unlike other types of insurance products. You can easily go online and check for quotes on term life insurance or contact an agent referred from one your family member or colleagues to pick a suitable policy of your choice.Being a temporary form of coverage has both negative and positive aspects. The positive being that it can provide financial help to your dependents. Also as your children grow older or your wife heads in to retirement, they would be less dependent on your income to survive. This makes it ideal to go in for term insurance for a period of up to 30 years when you have a newborn child in the family.Cons of term life insurance The temporary nature of insurance also brings with some negative aspects. At the end of the term the investor will not receive anything for which he has been paying premium for a long time. That means you would have to arrange for an alternative form of policy to look in to your various requirements. Also it becomes more difficult to buy a comprehensive insurance policy as you grow older because the body becomes more prone to sickness and may often require medical attention.Whole life insurance Pros and ConsWhole life insurance even though more expensive than term life offers the investor permanent coverage. It is one of the simplest forms of permanent coverage and has fixed premiums along with death benefits. Your cash value would continue to accumulate and the premiums are fixed making it possible to plan out your finances properly on a long-term basis.One of the drawbacks of this kind of policy is that the premiums cost more than term life even though they do not increase over time. Also in this form of investment the investor cannot be guaranteed of receiving dividends. Withdrawals from your policy can reduce the death benefits, which will be paid out to your beneficiaries.Universal Life InsuranceThese offer greater flexibility to the insurer in terms of choice and scope than term and whole life policies. This form of permanent coverage allows the investor to make changes in policy with regard to premium rates, timing of payout, limits and death benefits. The insurer can increase or decrease premium rates or cash value and can still be guaranteed protection based on the changes made.This form of policy is more complicated than whole life. Factors such as growth of cash value are assessed on a periodical basis which means in the event of a market downturn the performance of your policy could possible suffer. The investor may also have to pay higher levels of premiums.Variable Universal Life Insurance This kind of policy is in some ways similar to Universal life insurers but brings with it certain investment options. This form of permanent coverage offers greater flexibility with regard to premiums, death benefits, cash flow and other aspects. You can also choose to invest your cash flow in other funding options with the guidance of qualified investors. There is a lot of potential for growth but can also be a risky venture during market downturns.Comparison of life insurance quotesAll these types of insurance policies bring with different sets of strengths and weaknesses to the table. Every insurer must go through each policy thoroughly before deciding on what works for best for them. Once you have decided on type, go online to get comparisons on various life insurance quotes. Also make it a point to talk to several agents and have all your queries clarified so that you do now have any lingering doubts. Speaking to several agents also will bring in greater clarity over the entire process and makes you better equipped to purchase the best policy in the market.

Employee Time Clock Software – Why Every Workplace Needs It

The recent economic decline has had an impact on small and large businesses alike, forcing them to seek ways to reduce operating costs. In such scenarios, smart decisions by entrepreneurs have made the difference when it comes to cutting costs and improving their company’s overall productivity. One of the areas where a business can experience significant operational improvement is employee time management. By using your human resources to their fullest potential, you can achieve a considerable jump in productivity. Fortunately, there is a simple way to reach this objective. All you need to do is install an employee time clock software system.Realizing the need for Workplace ManagementAt times, small business owners can become preoccupied with the potential cost of implementing a time clock system. In fact, cost is usually the number one reason why the many benefits of workforce management solutions are overlooked. Systems such as time tracking software help organizations achieve more in less time and ensure that all employees are held accountable for their work hours. If you want to ensure that every second of your workforce’s time counts, there is no better tool for you than automated time and attendance software.The age old manual recording of employee work hours is exceedingly tedious, even at its best. The problem is not just with recording the time and attendance data. It is also the fact that it’s extremely laborious and time consuming to convert this data into meaningful information that can be later used by payroll or human resources. By implementing automated time clock systems, you can free up valuable time and HR resources that can be better utilized to accomplish tasks such as creating policies, devising strategies for employee benefits, and planning for future business needs.Adjusting to the Ever-Changing Workplace NeedsThe modern workplace is constantly evolving, which is why today’s ever-changing work environment requires the need for workforce management solutions. Can a manual time & attendance system keep up with the pace of change in today’s workforce environment? The answer, of course, is no. An employee time clock software system is a solution that will grow and change with the times, as well as with your company. As technology advances, so will your system. As your company grows and expands, so will your system. Scalability allows even small businesses the opportunity to implement the latest technologies to oversee their employees’ time and attendance.Benefits in Terms of ProductivityRegardless of the size of your company, the deficiencies of manual time and attendance tracking become fully exposed, especially when it comes to processing payroll. There are certain calculations and accrual that require accurate and reliable attendance data, and it is well known that there is greater chance of error when this is done manually. For example, it can be an uphill task to manually calculate the remaining annual leaves of an employee, but the same task can be accomplished with just a few clicks thanks to time tracking software.

Important Information About Payday Loans

Payday loans are very popular, because they are easy to get, your previous credit record is not an issue with the lenders and they are provided typically within twenty-four hours of applying. They are sometimes the only way out when there is an emergency, say a sudden emergency, like an illness or if you are required to shift residence suddenly. They are considered a blessing and the loan providers do seem a god send.The flip side of these loans is never considered. The effective APR or Annual Percentage Rate can work out very high because it calculates the compound rate on the fee payable calculated across the year, and the interest component is also charged on any upfront fees that have been paid like the origination or participation fee.Such expenses on a loan is never envisaged, and the lenders get trapped into either taking more payday loans to pay off the previous loan, or you are asked to roll the loan for a further period. Both the cases can be tricky. Even the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama called them loans predatory and trap borrowers in a cycle of debt. In fact, it is believed that this cycle or rollover, is an essential part of the industry’s business model.Of course, lenders have their side of the story. First and foremost, the loan is expected to be held for not more than a few weeks. It the rates were to be made on par with credit cards and other loan instruments, it could not justify the risk lenders take for lending small unsecured sums of money. Their operating expenses too would not be covered.Nevertheless, in a free market, where consumer is king, his interests have to be secured at all costs. Regulators the world over are putting into place the first ever rules on payday loans to help cash strapped lenders from falling into an ever widening pool of debt.This is when a payday loan claim specialist comes to your rescue. The payday loan refunds executive understands that you have been a victim unwittingly and understands that you want out but are helpless.The payday loan claims companies will help the borrower claim a refund from the pay loan provider in the following circumstances

If the borrower increasingly feels indebted causing a struggle to meet his weekly/ monthly household bills.

The loan lenders automatically debit his bank account, leaving no funds for the borrower’s routine expenses

It was made available to the borrower when he or she was unwell, without a job or living on benefits.

It was not affordable as envisaged by the borrower.

It was rolled over at the suggestion of the lender, resulting in more debt.

In order to repay, the borrower had to take additional loan or forgo the important payment of utilities such as electricity etc. or even tax.
How do they work?

The lender puts in his or her application for refund of claims with all the details of the payday loans taken.

The claims specialists analyze the documents and send them prepared documents for signature towards claims

The signed documents are presented to the lender who is potentially responsible for misspelling the payday loans

The lender intimates the payday loan company’s decision and the claims specialist negotiates on the borrower’s behalf for the best outcome

It settlement is not reachable, the case is referred by the claims specialist to the Financial Ombudsman who will deliver his independent verdict, which will be conveyed and explained to the borrower by the payday loan refunds executive or claim specialist.
