Outsource Your Life And Live The Smart Way

In an economy that we have, not to mention high prices of commodity but low salary, we tend to work hard in an aim of having a good life and a nice way of living for our family. Some of us get not only one job but two or three to be able to have the money that we need. Working ten to twelve hours a day, sometimes even up to fifteen. I myself am working ten hours or more in the office, and then selling beauty products during break, not to mention household chores when I get home. It was satisfactory since it meets the financial need of the family. But honestly, there are times that I feel exhausted.
As a full time pre-school teacher, it is not easy to get extra work or sideline.

I still have lesson plans to do, plus the materials that I will need in the execution of the lesson, like visual aids, questionnaire among others. Later on, I discovered that there is better than hard work. Earning enough or more than enough dollars but not necessarily draining every single energy that is in my body. Not only it is the trend but it is the smart way of getting things done in a clever way. I have learned the value of outsourcing. Doing all the visual aids took hours of my time since I don”t draw fast and good, so I asked a neighbor who can draw better than I am and pay him some dollars. Of course there is outsourcing disadvantages like sometimes, the picture that I want to see is not exactly what he did, but these things are manageable and the good thing about it is that the time that I was able to save was used in writing an article for a magazine who pays me quadruple than I squeezed from my pocket for his drawings. Another move I did was to hire a household helper that would do all the chores while I am writing more articles. Two weeks after I did this, I noticed that I am earning more but is working less.

Others thought that we can only use outsourcing in the business. What we don”t know is that we can incorporate outsourcing in everything that we do, and it will not only save us from grueling, it will bring more income and at the same time generate job for others. If in business world you need to know an outsourcing directory, in an ordinary life, we just need to know people whom to outsource our responsibilities. Everything in this world can be outsourced without exacerbating the quality of work; you just need to be wise in choosing the right person for the job. Outsource your life to improve not only for financial reason, but also to free yourself from stress so you can focus on more important matters.

Vendor Evaluation by Nick Krym is a great deal of advice, tips and more powerful sources that will help outsourcing companies and freelancers out there.

SMART HUMAN HABITAT_Brescia Smart City Hackathon
Event on 2016-10-01 09:00:00
Dalla teoria alla pratica! A Supernova brescia arriva Smart Human Habitat – Brescia Smart City Hackathon è un contest promosso da A2A Smart City, azienda di servizi di pubblica utilità, in collaborazione con Brescia Mobilità, CSMT, Social Car, Gulliver srl e organizzato da Talent Garden con la direzione tecnica di Ultrafab, il patrocinio di Y4TP. Per 48 ore team formati da Marketer, Designer e Developer lavorarenno NO STOP per lo sviluppo dei migliori progetti per innovare la città. L'Hackathon La città è lo human habitat in cui la maggioranza delle persone vive ogni giorno, innovare le città è un elemento fondamentale, sia per sviluppare un ambiente sociale condiviso e connesso che per costruire uno sviluppo sostenibile con l’ambiente naturale. Cerchiamo idee in grado di migliorare i processi e fornire nuove soluzioni alla smart city, nelle aree: Economia intelligente, Mobilità intelligente, Ambiente intelligente, Persone intelligenti, Vita intelligente, Governance intelligente. I partecipanti avranno a disposizione una soluzione che utilizza un apparato hardware multifunzione programmabile in grado di raccogliere in maniera autonoma una serie di dati (temperatura, posizione, orientamento, movimento), di essere collegato ad altri apparati e di trasmettere via radio le informazioni raccolte a grande distanza. I partecipanti avranno inoltre a disposizione gli opendata per la città di Brescia del progetto SocialCar (http://socialcar-project.eu/), progetto finanziato nell’ambito del programma di ricerca e innovazione dell’Unione Europea Horizon 2020. In particolare saranno messi a disposizione i big data relativi al trasporto pubblico Bresciano (autobus, metro, parcheggi, bikesharing) permettendo ai partecipanti di progettare modelli potenzialmente scalabili su ogni città europea aderente al progetto. Attraverso l’utilizzo dei sensori a2a si chiede di sviluppare applicazioni in grado di: Smart mobility e SocialCar Effettuare la predizione dei tempi di percorrenza dei mezzi pubblici e determinare la loro posizione in tempo reale, in modo da permettere a Brescia Mobilità di migliorare il servizio di trasporto urbano. Registrare posizione e percorsi dei mezzi di trasporto in sharing in modo da comprendere le abitudini di mobilità dei cittadini bresciani, arrrivando ad elaborare un modello potenzialmente scalabile su tutte le realtà coinvolte nel progetto europeo Socialcar. Smart mobility e fitness Comprendere i comportamenti di chi si allena utilizzando gli spazi cittadini al fine di aiutare l’amministrazione pubblica a migliorare le infrastrutture a disposizione. Fornire strumenti di socializzazione durante le sessioni di allenamento e promuovere uno stile di vita sano e condiviso. Smart shopping Tracciare i percorsi che i cittadini effettuano mentre acquistano prodotti, i tempi di permanenza negli esercizi commerciali. Fornire strumenti di socializzazione e condivisione durante gli acquisti L'evento si svolgerà in quattro fasi: 1. Proposta. All’inizio dell’evento, gli hacker proporranno un’idea progettuale da sviluppare durante il weekend e la sottoporranno al voto degli altri partecipanti. Al termine di questa fase, sarà stilata una classifica e le otto idee con il maggior numero di voti saranno sviluppate nel corso dell’evento. 2. Formazione dei team. Gli hackers formeranno – in modo volontario o su indicazione degli ideatori – dei team di 4/8 persone decidendo a quale idea contribuire. I team resteranno tali per tutta la durata dell’evento. 3. Lavoro di gruppo. Dopo aver formato i team, gli hackers si dedicheranno alla definizione e allo sviluppo dei progetti con l’obiettivo di realizzare dei prototipi e un pitch da presentare a una giuria per la loro valutazione. Sarà permesso l’utilizzo di qualsiasi tecnologia. Gli hacker lavoreranno con il proprio computer portatile e con altra attrezzatura hardware (es. schede di prototipazione) che ritenessero necessaria allo sviluppo dei progetti.  4. Valutazione finale. Dopo aver ascoltato le presentazioni dei progetti, la commissione si riunirà per decretare il miglior progetto seguendo i criteri definiti in questo bando. Il miglior progetto e relativo team saranno proclamati alle ore 18 di domenica 2 ottobre. In bocca la lupo!

Texas May Be Getting Smart About Health Insurance Cards

Every individual who has health insurance in Dallas, Houston and elsewhere in Texas probably has an insurance card that he/she carries in his/her wallet. Politicians in Texas are considering taking this concept one step further by requiring health insurance companies to electronically embed coverage information into health insurance “smart” cards.


By swiping such a health insurance smart card at a doctor’s office or hospital, your healthcare provider, and you, would get real-time information including: what your co-payment is, whether your deductible has been met, which providers are in your network and which procedures are covered.


“I’m a physician. I can’t even tell you what my own insurance covers,” Corpus Christi ophthalmologist Jerry Hunsaker told a House committee considering the so-called smart card legislation in April 2007.

Recently, the Texas House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a bill by Rep. Beverly Woolley (R-Houston) that would establish a pilot program. Now the measure is in the Senate.


Austinite Jeannie Rollo said the proposal sounds like a good idea. She fell and broke her leg in December 2006. Jeannie said that she had no idea whether the doctors treating her at the hospital there were in her network. “At that moment, I was in no condition to pick up my phone and call the insurance company about what kind of coverage I had,” said Rollo, executive director of the Lawyer Referral Service of Central Texas. The insurance company ended up paying the bill, she said.


Other individuals in Texas haven’t been so lucky, said Susan Strate, a Wichita Falls pathologist who is also chairman of the Texas Medical Association’s council on socioeconomics. Sometimes, she said, “the procedure is finished, the care has already been given, and the patient is thinking that their out-of-pocket expenses are X. But it turns out to actually be X plus Y.”


Strate said that having clear information in advance would help doctors better counsel patients on the most affordable and effective treatments available.

Woolley said her bill would cut down on administrative costs and reduce errors. She said she had received the idea from a constituent who pointed out that health insurance cards could have embedded information much like Texas drivers’ licenses do.


Some health plans already embed patient information into insurance cards, though health insurance providers are not required to do so in Texas. The Texas Association of Health Plans supports the bill, according to Executive Director Jared Wolfe. He said that having the information up front could help prevent payment disagreements between health plans and health providers after a procedure. Woolley’s bill does not specify the technology that would be used to put the information in the cards.


A successful smart card program for health insurance was instituted several years ago in the country of Taiwan. It was created by Taiwan’s Bureau of National Health Insurance (BNHI) to increase efficiency and decrease errors and fraud. The BNHI decided to replace its paper-based patient identification system with one built around Sun Microsystems’ Java-based smart cards. Less than a year after the first cards were distributed, the system was up and running nationwide for the country’s 22 million people.


The cards aren’t just another high-tech way to make sure that patients are who they say they are. Identity theft is a health care problem in any country, with an increasing number of individuals using stolen identities to seek treatment to which they are not entitled.


Furthermore, a paper-based system is hard to monitor and open to abuse, so unnecessary procedures can slip through. The smart cards help clamp down on many abuses and cut down on health-care costs. The cards are also intended to make treatment more efficient and safer.


The Taiwanese patient cards have 32 kilobytes of memory, and can store vital patient information including allergy information, organ donor status, emergency contact numbers, medication, prenatal information, and personal insurance data. A quick swipe and doctors have easy access to information they need to make fast, accurate decisions.
