Checking Up On a Chiropractor or Osteopath: Your Body Will Thank You

Checking Up On a Chiropractor or Osteopath: Your Body Will Thank You

You are in pain and you desperately want to find relief at the hands of a trusted and effective healer. It’s easy to find a chiropractor, physiotherapist, osteopath or podiatrist, right? Just type the word into Google and away you go. But hang on a minute, do you really believe what you read online to trust your back, bones or body to just about anyone? Is there a way to access online forums to find out what’s being said about that heath practitioner you were just about to go visit? Checking up on a chiropractor or osteopath: Your body will thank you.

Yes, the web is a truly wonderful place in that it offers so much information for the savvy seeker of knowledge. Social media channels are great forums for feedback in terms of customer satisfaction; especially at the hands of healers and health practitioners. Of course, we are all unique in our experience of bodyworkers. Where someone might find a chiropractor overly manipulative, another client may experience the treatment as purely divine. Likewise, an osteopath may be experienced by one party as ineffective and the same osteopath may be the bees knees for another.

However, it is always wise to glean as much information via the web as possible before putting yourself into the hands of an unknown quantity. There may be general information available about a practitioner, which transcends tastes and individual likes and dislikes. Discovering a community-trusted quality osteopath is something that should be widely shared. Unless of course you want to keep him, or her, a secret so that they don’t become booked out in the future. That could, of course, be considered churlish and detrimental to the success of your osteopath.

A chiropractor that gives you more than temporary relief is a valuable resource to have around you. Especially for those who play contact sports and like to live a very active life. In general, it is only through actual experience can you properly evaluate a healer’s benefit to your individual needs. Scouring the web and social media for specific information pertaining to the suitability of the practitioner to treat you, is more problematic. Remember that the digital sphere is a virtual world, made up of pixels and bytes; you cannot touch or be touched by anything there through a sensory experience. Opinions and information await you there, but in the end you will have to make your own mind up via direct experience of a suitable candidate.

 

Is Your Furniture Ethically Sourced?

Is Your Furniture Ethically Sourced?

It may sound crazy to concern yourself with the ethical nature of your furniture and where it came from, but for those who are green down to their knickers and socks it definitely isn’t. We are what we eat and we are what we wear, and in addition we are what we furnish our homes and workplaces with. If you are sitting, or sleeping, on some timber structure constructed from endangered rain forest timber, you are not doing the environment any favours. When you buy the wrong things you are sending the wrong economic stimulus out into the market.

Designers, who are in the business of designing furniture, feel the same way about consumers who purchase replica furniture. How ethical is it to buy a cheap rip off version of a chair or table that has been individually designed and created? Many of us would answer, I cannot afford to pay the large amounts of money many designers demand for their furniture. I go to Kmart and Wal-Mart to buy the knock-off versions made in China because that is what my budget determines. Designers would counter with the reply that if you allocate a larger budget for one really great piece of furniture, that will probably last a lifetime, you will experience a far greater inner appreciation at owning that piece of designer furniture.

Is Your Furniture Ethically Sourced?

You can research most things on the web. Replica furniture is pretty easily identified and most people are aware of its status before they buy it. Wooden furniture made from endangered rain forest timbers are recognisable through digital research by comparing your furniture with the online images. Asking questions before you buy things is always a good idea. If second hand, ask the seller is this a replica or an original? Ask the seller if they know what the wooden furniture item is made out of in terms of the type of wood used in its construction? Never be afraid to ask pointed questions during a negotiation. Timber furniture can be soulful and beautiful; it can be expensive when well-made.

Surround yourself with ethical things; people and furniture. Everything reflects on us; especially in the age of consumerism. People in cities identify themselves by what they choose to buy. We do not make much stuff ourselves anymore, we buy things made by others. The majority of people by what is cheapest, and at the same time what they most like within that budget. Perhaps, it would be better to buy beyond the parameters of IKEA?

 

 

Which Marketing Company Is for You? Can You Check Them?

Which Marketing Company Is for You? Can You Check Them?

Marketing for many people is a dirty word; and the people who inhabit this world are often considered shonksters by those who have proper jobs. But love them or hate them, modern business needs marketers. You can make or sell the best product in the universe, but if nobody knows that you exist you will not be selling very many units. How can you find out if a marketing company is effective at what they claim to do? Sure, there is always word of mouth; but is the person singing their praises a genuine client or the bosses best friend? Traditional marketing is a bit like hanging with the ‘in-crowd’, success tends to rub off on those who work with successful clients. Obviously this is also going to mean that you will be paying top dollar to work with marketing firms who boast of having blue chip clients.

Which marketing company is for you? Can you check them? In the modern era, in the digital age, marketing has become more measurable. Google ad words are based on measurable clicks. In terms of organic SEO, the software Majestic SEO can determine the quality of a businesses’ links. Their very presence on the first page of Google will tell you about a businesses’ digital strategy and whether it is effective or not. One of the original selling points for digital marketing over traditional marketing was that it was far more measurable than the bad old days of readership figures, print runs and television ratings. All of these measures were manipulated by the publications and television channels to appear larger and more substantial than they ever actually were.

Which Marketing Company Is for You? Can You Check Them?

So, how can you find out whether a traditional marketing company is good or not? Ask to see their portfolio, as we mentioned that is a good starting point. Do a google search and see what news articles are saying about them and their clients. New marketing companies are combining traditional and digital strategies to deliver their clients the best of both worlds. Traditional print media is dead or dying, so forget that, apart from a few die hard niche publications. SEO is the most important form of marketing currently existing; and search is king when it comes to delivering you quality leads. Social media can fan a few flames and make a bit of noise about your product or service; but, equally, don’t get lost in this realm of time wasters and tyre kickers. ‘Suck it and see’ is still the most sound way of checking the veracity of a marketing company and their suitability for your product.

 

Paranoid or Psychic? Guessing A Person’s Background Is Hazardous

Paranoid or Psychic? Guessing A Person’s Background Is Hazardous

Have you ever been an employer? Have you ever faced the situation where you are in the process of hiring someone and you are just not quite sure about them? It is often a matter of how great your need is, or to put it another way, how desperate you are for staff. Unfortunately, when you invite someone into your life, especially if you are the owner of a small business, if it does not work out it can be detrimental, not only to your business, but to yourself as well. I have had my windows smashed in by baseball bat wielding baddies and my name erroneously given to the tax department for investigation, all in response to hiring the wrong kind of person for my restaurant.

As an employer making a crucial decision around who to hire, you need the facts, so what are the best ways of snooping upon a candidate? You can sometimes gauge a lot from a person’s appearance or demeanour, but you need a keen instinct to sense where your intuition ends and pure nonsensical paranoia begins. Personally, I did not even think about such intrusive practices in my early days of being an employer, but toward the end I would not hesitate to take whatever preemptive action I could to avoid hiring maladjusted psychos and, generally, poor staff members. Some people, for whatever reason, just think that you owe them a living and will prey upon your good nature and generosity like carrion.

Paranoid or Psychic? Guessing A Person’s Background Is Hazardous

In the bad old days, you could either trust a central psychic sense or rely on referrals from clients and other staff members to obtain your employees. An investigation pre-Internet days would involve a private investigator performing a check into prospective employees, which was expensive. Today, you can do a professional check via a social media agency and derive some pretty useful information. You cannot underestimate how stupid most people are about what they allow to be posted online about themselves; in the majority of cases they post compromising evidence about themselves online themselves.  The digital diary called Facebook is accessible 24/7 and very happy to spill the beans on a joker who gets up to no good whenever he or she can. Paranoid or psychic? Guessing a person’s background is hazardous no more.

Debt Collectors On the Phone: Your Background or Theirs?

Debt Collectors On the Phone: Your Background or Theirs?

Have you ever had the experience of being challenged over the phone about money you owe? You have, you no good welcher, remind me never to lend you any money! Just joking, of course. Many of us have found ourselves in the delicate situation of having over committed ourselves financially; it is not a hanging crime, well, not anymore any way. It used to be, there were huge debtor’s prisons in England and Europe back in the day; they took property very seriously in them days. In Charles Dicken’s novels much of the action took place for the characters in these debtor’s prisons in the city. Money was more important than people back then; some folks say nothing much has changed. Debt collectors on the phone: your background or theirs?

When you have one of those dastardly debt collectors on the line, and you can feel their ethereal hands reaching down the copper network for your nether regions to give them a nasty squeeze, what can you do about it? Hang up the phone? Pretend you are a distant relation and your relative has left the country? How much information are you required to provide to debt collectors when they call you? If you’ve defaulted on debts, you may be surprised at how much they already know about you. A bad credit history can prove very debilitating at pivotal life moments. Better you find out what they know and start to fix the problem.

Debt Collectors On the Phone: Your Background or Theirs?

ACM Group are one of the largest organisations of its kind in the debt collecting industry and they have a global network of debt collecting agencies; so there is nowhere to run and hide. A bit like Santa Clause, they see you while your sleeping, and so you better be good and deal with the situation. Debt collectors want to work with you, they want to make arrangements that will help you pay off your debt. Managing debt is as important to them as it is, ultimately, to you. To be free of debt is liberating for you; and your payment of your debt is profitable for them, that is the business they are in after all.

Your credit history is a bit like another version of you in another dimension. A dimension inhabited by accountants, credit managers and debt collectors; and where figures dance on digital screens to the tune of “Santa Clause is Coming to Town”.

 

Bookmakers Who Don’t Pay Up: Check Them Out Online First

Bookmakers Who Don’t Pay Up: Check Them Out Online First

Is there any worse experience than jagging a huge win on an outsider in a horse race and discovering that your bookmaker won’t pay up? Bookmakers who don’t pay up: check them out online first to avoid serious disappointment. Just because someone presents themselves as a bookmaker, carrying the bag or having a website, does not mean that they are automatically ridgy didge. There are plenty of nefarious characters in the racing game. Money attracts bastards; that is a fact of life. At the moment we have tons of corporate bookies waving wads of cash around, promising big bonus bets and the like. Can you rely on them to come through with the dosh as promised?

Check them out online first. Do a search and see if there are any complaints against these dudes that have been posted online. The surest way to lose your credibility is to have a raft of complaints floating around in the digital atmosphere. Reputation is everything for bookies; if there is even a sniff of malpractice when it comes to paying out, well, say goodbye to carrying the cash of the gambling faithful. Gamblers want assurances when they are risking their hard earned on the backs of nags. The bets themselves are risk enough and most punters lose in the long run any way, but a bookmaker who won’t pay up that is worse than the worst crime you can imagine.

Bookmakers Who Don’t Pay Up: Check Them Out Online First

Background checks make sense when you are paying out first and waiting for a result to happen later. Whatever the time frame, you need that assurance that the only crime your bookmaker might be committing is outsmarting the mug punter in the first place. Your bookie is akin to your banker, he has your money, and both bankers and bookmakers are gambling with your money to make a profit. Bankers and banks have to project that safe as houses image in the marketplace, which is why they always used to have those big stone building with pillars and such like. They were temples devoted to money and had to keep those funds securely locked up or give that impression any way. In reality they were investing your money in various forms of speculative activity; investing is just another word for gambling.

Your bookmaker must seem as reliable as your banker; forget about the recent subprime lending global financial crisis and the direct involvement of the banking sector, that’s another matter entirely. LOL.

The Headmistress with A Shady History: A Lesson for Us All

The Headmistress with A Shady History: A Lesson for Us All

Life demands of some of us an exemplary public record. The Headmistress with a shady history is a lesson for us all. Teachers are, for all intents and purposes, in our modern societies, surrogate parents; we have all out-sourced our mentor responsibilities to paid professionals in regard to our children. Therefore, teachers, and especially Principals and Headmistresses, are forever judged by their moral behaviour, both past and present. We, most likely, set a higher standard upon these paid professionals than we do upon ourselves and our own kind.

I am reminded of a particularly news-worthy case that came to light quite recently. When a girls’ school headmistress, some two decades earlier, took a part-time job as a phone sex operator, little did she know the photo she emailed when applying for that job would still be on their website twenty years later. The photo in question revealed a lithesome full breasted woman with legs spread wide wearing nothing but a tiny pair of see-through knickers. A great choice for the visual promotion of a service offering aural stimulation for the masturbatory male, but not, I fear, for the moral leader of a Catholic girl’s school.

The Headmistress with A Shady History: A Lesson for Us All

Some among us may say that she as an individual, at that time unencumbered by her now onerous responsibilities, was free to pursue commercial interests on the Girls of Oz phone sex line and should not now be judged for that activity. But, parents of the girls, attending the Sacred Heart Institution for Young Virgins, were not in any way amused to discover that the moral welfare of their children was in the hands of a, once was phone sex operator. They were enraged and demanded the immediate sacking of their headmistress. The school board complied post haste and she was sent packing with the shrill complainants echoing loudly in her ears.

Beware the fury of the sexually repressed moral majority; it has not been that long since the last witch was burnt at the stake. Complex human beings are not wanted in certain professions. Multiple talents and interests are not an advantage in careers such as these. Life experience is not valued when it comes to those in the vicinity of Mary Magdalene and her questionable pre-Christ activities. Young virgins must not be sullied by voices that have urged on self-abusers in no uncertain terms; or they too may come to a sticky end.

Tracking People’s Dark Pasts: Ethical or Invasive?

Tracking People’s Dark Pasts: Ethical or Invasive?

The question whether anyone has the right to investigate another person’s life goes to the heart of the whole privacy issue. In the twenty first century does privacy, even, really exist anymore? Since the advent of the digital age, nearly everything is recorded somewhere. Tracking people’s dark pasts and pondering whether it is ethical or, conversely, invasive, has become, in some ways, an almost obsolete question. I suppose we have to determine what we mean by a ‘dark past’. Is it criminal or just socially distasteful? That, I think, is an important qualification when determining the validity of the investigation.

Where is the seeker of the information coming from? What is the justification of their concern? Is it a woman or a man in search of information about someone they are going to marry, or form an intimate relationship with, and does this situation confer validity upon their investigation? If you are going to get into bed with someone without your pants on, you may want to know who this person really is. Intimacy often assumes intimate knowledge of a person’s background, when in actual fact, lust is more often blind when hot.

Tracking People’s Dark Pasts: Ethical or Invasive?

If your intended had been working as an escort in Adelaide and was familiar with a veritable roster of sexual partners, would you want to know about that? Especially if you were about to marry that person in the same city. Would you be concerned about future compromising and embarrassing situations? Could it adversely affect your career or social position within that community? Ignorance is not always bliss!

How about the employer who is about to hire a new staff member at the playgroup for toddlers and infants? Is he or she entitled to know about the dark past of the candidate, as minister for religion with paedophiliac tendencies? A no-brainer you say; and that is why we have police checks in these industries. But are the police checks always thorough and can they be compromised through corruption? This is why website such as this exist, to provide an even greater level of scrutiny in the search for information, which some want hidden.

Tracking People’s Dark Pasts: Ethical or Invasive?

What about the secondary school who investigates the sexual preferences of their teachers before they hire them? Are they entitled to peer into the private activities beneath the bedclothes of their would-be teachers? Is homosexuality a crime? Is Polyamatory a crime? Should the intimate behaviour of high school teachers be relevant to their careers? Something to think about when tracking people’s dark pasts: ethical or invasive?
