STAYING AT HOME

STAY HOME STAY SAFE !!!!!!!!

The CORONA pandemic has led us to stay home, we can’t meet our friends and relatives who even live a few miles away. So below are my couple of things which keeps me calm and quiet during the whole situation:



MUSIC ON WORLD OFF. WHERE WORDS LEAVE OFF, MUSIC BEGINS.

So, when you divide the world into music lovers, music fans and then those people who are just very casual about their music, it’s wallpaper to them, it’s elevator music, it’s just the thing that’s playing in the background that helps them through their day. I think people are being polite. What they want to say is that it’s third world music. Like they used to call us underdeveloped countries, now it has changed to developing countries, it’s much more polite.



I LOVE A GOOD NETFLIX BINGE!!!

With Comedy Central, they produced it and did everything – I just had to walk up there and tell the jokes – whereas with Netflix, I was heavily, creatively involved, from the logo to the lighting of the room to selecting the venue to selling the tickets and promoting it.

I’m really chill.It’s like different moods, so whenever you are in one mood, I get a song for that. And then you in a down or other type of mood where you really just wanna chill, I got that type of music, too….

HAVING A WEBSITE!!!

“If there’s one thing you learn by working on a lot of different Web sites, it’s that almost any design idea–no matter how appallingly bad–can be made usable in the right circumstances, with enough effort.”



Still, I get a lot of puzzled looks when I tell people that having a website is the single most important thing a business, cause, or person can do to advance online. Even though ‘having a website’ has hit it big, most people don’t get what makes blogging so powerful, helpful, and beneficial.

In today’s digital world, nearly everyone is connected in some way to the World Wide Web in order to satisfy their entertainment, education, research and consumer needs. The popularity of the Internet has prompted businesses of all sizes to have an online presence in the form of a Website.

Having a website means customers are always able to find you – anytime, anywhere. Even outside of business hours, your website continues to find and secure new customers. It offers the user convenience as they can access the information they need in the comfort of their own home, with no added pressure to buy. 

In today’s modern world, there is an expectation for any reputable company to have some kind of online presence.The useful tools like emails are present to share crucial information about your business with customers and answer all the What’s and Why’s that they may have. What’s more, having a good quality, easy-to-use website makes customers feel comfortable using your services, as they will assume they can expect the same positive experience in all areas of your business.

Websites, in general, are great ways to provide a place that potential investors can be referred to. It shows what your company is about, what it has achieved and what it can achieve in the future.

TIME BANKING

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

BY- HENERY FORD


In economics, a time-based currency is an exchange system where the unit of account is the person-hour or some other time unit. Some time-based currencies value everyone’s contributions equally: one hour equals one service credit. In this system, one person volunteers to work for an hour for another person; thus, they are credited with one hour, which they can redeem for an hour of service from another member.It is a reciprocity-based work trading system in which hours are the currency.

It is a system of bartering various services for one another using labor-time as a unit of account which was developed by various socialist thinkers based on the labor theory of value. Their units can be credited to a person’s account in the time bank and redeemed for services from other members of the time bank. It can be considered a form of community currency. However, because the labor-time units of account are not generally accepted outside the membership of the time bank, nor for general goods traded in the market other than specific labor services, it does not constitute a form of money in an economic sense outside the inherently limited context of the time bank itself.

In a time-banking environment, people receive labor-time credits when they provide a service to another member of the time bank. Every hour of time is just valued the same, regardless of the service rendered. In theory, any type of service can be exchanged for another. 

It uses modern technology to try to introduce the secondary functions of money to formalize and regulate the practice of trading favors and mutual or social obligations. It functions as a hybrid system between a true monetary economy of indirect exchange and a reciprocal gift economy characteristic of informal, pre-capitalist, and primitive economies. As such, it can have some of the advantages and disadvantages of both types of economic systems. 

It is promoted as helping to foster community ties and encourage people who would not normally get involved in traditional volunteering. It seeks to overcome the problems of the social and economic alienation between producers and consumers that is widely believed to characterize industrial capitalist economies and has often formed the rationale for social unrest and revolutionary communism. It formally and tangibly recognizes the economic value of labor services that are not traditionally traded in the formal monetary economy but that often form the basis of valuable social capital.

“It is not by augmenting the capital of the country, but by rendering a greater part of that capital active and productive than would otherwise be so, that the most judicious operations of banking can increase the industry of the country.

The academics aiming to study new age solutions to the problems of market failure and social isolation back radical solutions emphasize its advantages in building community, inclusion, volunteerism, and social assistance. It is promoted as helping to foster community ties and encourage people who would not normally get involved in traditional volunteering. It seeks to overcome the problems of the social and economic alienation between producers and consumers that is widely believed to characterize industrial capitalist economies and has often formed the rationale for social unrest and revolutionary communism. It formally and tangibly recognizes the economic value of labor services that are not traditionally traded in the formal monetary economy but that often form the basis of valuable social capital. Above all, it has been championed for enabling people with low incomes to access services that would be unaffordable to them in the traditional market economy.

Critics also fear that time banking could distort market forces, causing economic problems. However, with the economic problems already stemming from free market economies in recent years, the system is often seen as more of a solution than a threat. It is a way of spending one hour of time helping someone out by, for example, mowing someone’s lawn, or doing their shopping. For every hour spent, you earn an hour in return. This can be spent on receiving an hour of someone else’s time or, where available, things like theatre or cinema tickets. You could learn something new or share a skill you have like cooking or playing a musical instrument. 

The stagnant state of the global economy has worked in time banks’ favour. People are increasingly keen to find alternative ways of leveraging their skills and resources through the crowd economy. For instance, if you can’t find someone who’ll pay you cash to teach them a language or mentor their child, why not see if you can find someone who’ll pay you in time?

In future, time banks could be a valuable means for people to ‘pay in’ time in their youth and spend it in their old age. Time banks could also help to plug gaps in public service provision, ensuring people are still cared for when the state isn’t up to the task.

Life has changed and our friends and family do not always live nearby. It is not so easy to ask neighbours for help these days, particularly if we do not know if we can ever pay them back.We believe that every person in society is of value no matter what their age or ability. Everyone has knowledge and experience and every person has the ability to help someone in their community .
