environment-content

The world population is increasing at an alarming rate. This not only will effect on the living standard of mankind but also cause the environmental degradation and shortage of natural resources including production of agriculture, shortage of fresh water and the loss of biological diversity.

Humans and other living organisms rely on the natural resources for their survival. Because of the growth in population the resources for every individual are decreasing. Often people think that the environmental deterioration happens because of the pollution in the environment. This is only one factor but the actual problem is something else.

The environmental deterioration is far more complex and dangerous phenomenon then the anticipated narrow view of pollution. The population size and the rate at which population increase in developed countries as well as in developing countries are the most important factor in environmental degradation. As the population increases the utilization of the natural resources maximizes and leads to the shortage of food, water and other necessities of life.

The current population of the world is about 7.5 billion as of (August, 2017) and it is projected to be 10 billion by the year 2040, as estimated on the current growth rate of 1.5 percent per …read more

Privity honored being mentioned by Deloitte on Blockchain technology

Privity is honoured to have received mention in Deloitte’s article on Blockchain technology:

Customer loyalty and engagement can make or break companies, warns  a report  from the Deloitte Center for Financial Services on blockchain-based solutions for customer loyalty. That makes rewards programs a strategic investment for all types of organizations.

Deloitte , the second-largest professional services network in the world by revenue and the largest by the number of professionals, is very influential in the business world and its advice is regularly sought and followed. When it issues a report on loyalty programs and blockchain technology, many operators will listen.

“Loyalty rewards are also a type of digital currency, so it is only natural that the engine that enables Bitcoin to be transacted among multiple parties in exchange for services, goods, and even other monetary tender could do the same for loyalty reward points,” the report noted. “[Blockchain technology] is an ideal remedy for what ails loyalty rewards programs.”

Communicative Competence – Road to Excellence

communication

Cultural change can be a significant disturbance in one’s academic and professional career. We regularly dread rejection and even get ourselves caught in the journey of turbulent acclimatization to new practices when attempting to integrate into another culture. New culture could be a town, a living spot with your relatives, a college, or simply a substitute work environment. There are some individuals lucky enough to possess intercultural communication competence to blend in while many still oppose change and take a while to get used to new techniques.

Integration into new cultures requires being adaptive, social, friendly and compliant which in my opinion is easier if one knows the language of the culture one is stepping in or simply the culture of interest. Hence, I feel intercultural communicative competence needs to be addressed at school and college levels to help individuals integrate into new cultures easily while pursuing professional careers.
I have always been a protagonist of learning foreign languages because I believe the world is a global village and intercultural communication is the way forward to bridge the differences between the various parts of this global village. However, intercultural communication competence and integration into new cultures are two diverse topic that …read more

Sleep. Relieve. Repeat

catch_up_sleep-feat

Yes, you read that right! Sleeping your worries away is something we all need to practice for relieving the tensions we hold within.

Quality sleep is fundamental for a healthy lifestyle. Amid sleep, the body rests, washes down, and filters itself. It repairs, modifies, develops, and mends itself. The burdens, strains, and pressures amassed for the duration of the day are in a perfect world discharged, and, in our dreams, to some degree settled while sleeping, which suggests we must sleep to relieve stress.

In dreams, the brain is interested in imaginative levels of the mind, and we can tap the well-spring of profound motivation, bits of knowledge, and even feelings that may significantly move and guide our lives. What’s more, in profound sleep, our cerebrum backs way off, and all the “mental projects” that we run stop to work, permitting us to rest in a condition of unadulterated being. At the point when our circuits are stuck with stress, and we tumble into bed depleted, and wake ourselves up with cautions, we are more averse to understand the full advantages sleep brings to the table.

Absence of sleep on the other hand, which is normal in nervousness …read more
