The impact of population growth on the environment.

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
