A Cheesy Post

As technology is improving by the hour and more and more innovations are being made, human input is slowly being replaced by machines and artificial intelligence. I would not be surprised if sooner or later, businesses will be operated almost entirely through and by machines.

As sad and frightening as it may be, I think the probability that the demand for college graduates in the future will decrease due to technological progress is quite high. Operating through computers can reduce costs, is more efficient, and is less prone to error. Plus, they are not hard to handle because they can’t cause drama in the workplace which is always a drag. But I still believe that humans, with the help of computers, will always be better in getting things done because the very ability of humans to feel (I know it’s disgustingly cheesy to say) and have something we call instinct can be more than useful at times. Some things require emotion, you know. *wink*

Although I think that human labor getting replaced by computers is not far from happening, I’m still hoping that it won’t jeopardize the future of college graduates.graduation

12 Things Being Fat Taught Me

12. People DO judge you for being fat.

It’s true! They do it! I’ve been criticized by teachers, clerks at clothing stores, fast food workers, and even random strangers on the street. I’m not the pity party throwing type; so don’t assume that’s my agenda with this one. However, the fact of the matter is so many people think fat discrimination doesn’t exist. There are many different types of subtle hatred in this world, and fat people definitely get judged. Ever seen Tyra Banks dress up in a fat suit? Well, that has nothing to do with anything; but go Youtube that right away please.

11. Clothing companies think we don’t exist.

Another one that most people don’t realize. I myself like vintage inspired looks, and those can be easier to find in larger sizes. Ever shopped the average Macy’s, though? It’s like trying to find…

Thought Catalog

1. You are very frank and loud at home or when you are with your friends but you turn into a timid shy ball when you are with people you hardly know.



2. You are the entertainer in your friends circle but you hate it when your friends expect you to entertain in front of a crowd of strangers.



3. You are very close to just one or two friends among your friends circle. With the rest of the friends in your circle, you are comfortable being you but you are not too close. 



4. There’s an uncertainty when you agree to keep in touch with people. There are days when you want to talk to people yet there are days when you don’t want to talk to anyone.



5. When your friends ask you to join them for an outing, the first thing you ask is; “Who…

This… this is my soul song, people. This is my Vietnam.

1. You’re not anti-social, you’re selectivelysocial.

2. Atany given point, you have one (maybe two) best friends who areyour entire life.You’re not a “group of friends” person. You can’t keep up with all that.

3. Social gatherings that are supposed to be “rites of passage” like prom and dances and other such typical nonsense is just… not for you. You don’t understand it. You want nothing to do with it.

4. When you do choose tograce a party with your presence, you are thelife of it.You’re dancing on the table and doing body shots until 3 a.m.

5. … You then retreat into three days of complete solitude to recover.

6. You go out of your way to avoid people, but when you inevitably have to interact with them, you make it seem like…

Open-Source Software: It’ll stick around

         One of the things that always amaze me when I’m going through stuff on social media sites is the fact that there are lots and lots of very talented and gifted people on the Internet. There is a whole community of weirdos (the good kind, of course) on YouTube who never cease to make me laugh through their videos but more importantly, inspire me to become a better person. There’s a lot of witty, unbelievably observant, and downright hilarious bloggers on Tumblr who put up the craziest posts that sometimes send my brain into a coma but also remind me I am not alone when I’m not at my best. These two sites that I have mentioned have taken the world by a storm and still continue to flourish. I think the reason for this is because they not only connect people but also serve as media for them to enhance and showcase their abilities.

        I have just recently learned about open-source software which is one that can be freely used, changed, and shared by anyone.

         Anyone can download it, anyone can edit it. It can be developed by totally random programmers, anybody can take the initiative to fix bugs and make it better. It’s pretty much like Wikipedia, anyone can input whatever they want. It might seem like a negative thing but trust me, it’s not. It just means that people have the freedom to tweak, modify, or put their own spin on the software. Imagine if programming experts all over the world collaborated on a single project. All these great minds are joined through the amazingly convenient connection we call the Internet. All these ideas gathered together for one great cause. The result will no doubt be nothing less than marvelous. And their efforts don’t go to waste; their contributions are recognized by their peers worldwide. A creation as brilliant as the open-source software is not going to disappear and be forgotten anytime soon; it will only become bigger and better. Things that allow people to express themselves freely and do what they’re good at always find ways to stick around.

Novelty or Functionality

detox_technology_484_499_100
        iGeneration, Tech Gen, Generation Z. These are some of the labels older generations use to call today’s generation of teenagers and kids. We are often described as the ones who are not socializing enough (not physically anyway), too dependent on the Internet, and too attached to gadgets. But we, the younger generation, are not the only ones who are guilty of these. Almost everybody, from a 6-year-old to a senior citizen, can say that he or she is at least one of these things.

        As we are currently living in an age where technology is constantly evolving and n-in-1 products are always popping up, having gadgets has become a major priority, to some people, even a necessity that could be put on the same list as food, shelter, and clothing. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines gadget as an interesting and often novel device with a practical use. However, the term “gadget” has gotten a negative connotation that it’s just an accessory, even a symbol of social status and not something that is very practical. So, how is a gadget different from a device with a practical use but is not considered one? The answer to that is from the definition of gadget itself. A gadget is often identified by its novelty rather than its use or function. A helpful device, on the other hand, is something that is not necessarily in or new but is very functional and important for people’s everyday tasks. The difference is like that of want and need. Gadget is to want and helpful device is to need. To make the difference even clearer, just compare a tablet and a vacuum cleaner (probably the uncoolest thing to compare to a tablet). They are both technological devices but you don’t really need me to tell you which one is the gadget, right?

Factory of the Future

 

futuristic-buildings-preview-city-1

       If I were to run a huge business that would require dealing with various big-name suppliers and thousands upon thousands of customers, I would like my company to have the most advanced and most efficient technology there is—given that the company can afford it. So, if I could design and create my own system, these are the things it has to have or do:

1. Online shopping site. I would like my company to have an online shopping site for the convenience of everybody. Through this, more people can avail of the products and it can also be a way to survey the personal preferences of customers.

 

2. Automatic identification and data capture.

front    a. A system that would only need customers’ and suppliers’ basic information—like name, address, and contact number—would be ideal. The system itself will be able to gather and record more information about them, especially the customers, through searching through their past transactions, public profiles on the internet and even their searches.
    b. Customers won’t have to type or write their information. They can just scan their IDs using the readers on the counters when they check-out.

3. Strong firewall. With the information it stores, the system should be heavily protected to ensure confidentiality.

4. Notify customers. The system should be able to send updates about the company such as sales, promos, and new products to customers.

5. Notify suppliers. In order to avoid running out of supplies, the system should be able to send notifications to suppliers automatically when supplies run low through the use of wireless inventory sensors in the very shelves of the products.

6. Self-shopping.

    a. An application that enables mobile shopping, product location, and price confirmation are offered to customers. Customers can also review the running totals of their spending through the app which is accessible through the in-store Wi-Fi.

Self scanning software    b. Checking out will not have to be drag for customers because they can just carry handheld barcode scanner while shopping and punch the items they would want. They can also recheck the items they have chosen before paying so that they can leave the ones they don’t want behind.
