The Reasons Agriculture is Important

Why is agriculture important? The concept of ‘food security’ is fundamentally important, and for that reason, agriculture is important. The task of feeding its people has been perhaps the first priority of its rulers throughout history. As such, agriculture is considered to be the very basis of political and social stability of a nation since times immemorial.

Moreover, the agricultural sector plays an important role in the sphere of providing large scale employment to people. Large and moderately large farms employ workers to undertake the various jobs relating to cultivation of crops and care of farm animals. In most of the countries of the world, agriculture still remains the biggest sector responsible for the employing and feeding a large percentage of the population.

Agriculture is also important from the point of view of appraising the standard of a country’s development, based on the competence of its farmers. Poorly trained farmers cannot apply the advanced methods and new technologies. The prominence of science and technology in the development of agriculture is quite clear from the words of Deng Xiaoping –

The development of agriculture depends first on policy, and second on science. There is neither any limit to developments in science and technology, nor to the role that they can play in the field of agricultural growth’.

Though agriculture often plays a contributory role in the ‘Gross Domestic Product’ – GDP – of most countries, it nevertheless requires a substantial boost from both the local and the international community.

Agriculture is traditionally based on bulk manufacturing. Harvesting is done once a season, most of the times, and stocked and used later. In fact, some thinkers opine that people have begun to adopt ‘batch processing’ and ‘stocking’ in manufacturing, as a result of the practices from agricultural thinking. Before industrialization, people with …

The Top Three Reasons Law Firms Are Not Using Digital Dictation Technology

In my profession, it is common to ask a lot of questions. Truly, it’s necessary. A Virtual Assistant is someone who has to know as much as possible about a particular client’s systems or way of doing things in order to best configure and make use of available technology to help them do it better, faster, for less cost — whatever the client is looking to gain.

I started my VA career almost eight years ago and limit my practice to virtual assistance to the legal industry. Over the years, I have asked many attorneys, law firm administrators, paralegals, HR managers, private investigators, IT administrators, managing partners, office managers, secretaries and others about the processes used at their firms. Some use document management software, some don’t. Some have websites, some don’t. Almost without fail, when asked what the attorneys use for dictation, the most common response: a tape recorder.

That’s good, because dictating is a very efficient process, even with a tape. According to Dictaphone, in 1952 recorded dictation was established as “a time saver over handwriting and stenography among attorneys, physicians and other professionals”. The first mini-cassette recorder was marketed in 1973. Do you believe it? That same little recorder still in use at most firms in the US today is the technological equivalent of listening to music on an 8 track!

In any event, if your firm uses tape based dictation, then it is already understood that recording actual firm work product is a good way to get things done and if your firm does not use dictation, perhaps you should be starting with digital so keep reading.

Why Upgrade To Digital Dictation?

Although not as old as dictation itself, digital dictation has been around for quite some time. The medical profession has been using digital dictation technology …

Reasons To Choose Satellite Radio Technology

For many years, satellite television had been available to the viewer, allowing you to watch your favorite shows in high definition quality. It is now even possible to surf the Internet by these means and you get to enjoy super fast speed. So, it is logical that you should be able to listen to satellite radio with this technology.

Swapping over from your regular radio to this new technology means that you no longer have to become frustrated over poor signal strength or quality. The broadcast quality is excellent and you never have to worry about constantly fine tuning your favorite station due an enlarged sized footprint.

Normally, if you are driving on a long journey, you will have to constantly retune your radio as you travel to search for a new station you like as you move from one locality to the next, unless you have tuned into a national station. This switching and tuning that has been a part of life for FM and AM radio listeners really is now becoming a thing of the past.

When you are searching for new radio stations to listen to by this modern and diverse method, you will find that stations are often categorized by genre and era or decade. This means you could tune into a channel that plays the specialist music you love, such as 1980s pop music. You will almost certainly be used to this method already if you have satellite television in the home; here once again you will find hundreds of specialist music channels to choose from.

What you may find different in listening to the radio in this digital age is that there will be less talk time, less intros and just good quality music. The disc jockey does still exist in satellite radio, but …

5 Reasons the Apple Search Engine Could Happen Sooner or Later

Around 9 months ago, Facebook officially introduced its new social search engine to the public. With that announcement, now 4 tech juggernauts already have their own search engines. Google with its widely-popular “Google”, Microsoft with “Bing”, Yahoo with “Yahoo!” and last but not least, Facebook with its newly-announced “Graph Search”.

But what about Apple, the company that in the fiscal year of 2012 made more profits than even Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Facebook combined? Does this Cupertino-based tech giant have any plan to follow Facebook’s footsteps to launch its own search engine in the near future?

How the Rumors Started?

Actually, the rumors about Apple’s search engine have become old news in tech world. As a matter of fact, many famous tech news portals from TechCrunch, Mashable and other sites, including analyst Gene Munster believed that Apple’s own search engine was in the making and would replace Google Search on iOS. Meanwhile, the writers at Forbes were also really vocal regarding this issue.

The sign of Apple removing Google Search from iOS was known publicly when Apple decided to deprive Google Maps on iOS 6 and replace it with its homemade Apple Maps, which sadly then became a huge flop for Apple.

Although Google Maps then made it back again on iOS 6 in the form of app on iTunes, many people believed that this could be the first sign that Apple Search is heading to iOS anytime soon. Unfortunately, we never heard about the existence of Apple’s search engine ever since.

But the rumors were raised again from the dead when Apple reportedly hired Bill Stasior, an Amazon’s executive who had years of experience in search engine world. He was assigned by Apple to handle the development of SIRI. And at the beginning of this year, we also saw …
