“Looking Up Into The Cloud”

 

 

With recent natural disasters, many major city areas have been submerged. South Asia is known for their location of enterprise call and data centers, and the Houston area has numerous corporation subdivisions. Flooding has caused many people to be without power and vehicles can’t get to the people that need help for at least food. How do these situations affect companies?

 

More than ever, many corporations and enterprises will have no choice than to use the cloud verses the physical on-prem to store all-of their company data and then some. If a company’s other facility’s power goes out, another location can still access all-of their data to keep them operating. This is most effective way to make sure that customers and partners are still taken cared for during a time of extreme emergency.

 

Since some hospital named chains use a source such as Oracle, if one facility is without power due to a storm or another disaster, a different location can still access information for patients so they can assist accurately. This is extremely important since peoples’ lives are at stake for medical professionals can easily be sued for malpractice later if a death occurred. Any doctor and/or nurse doesn’t want to provide the wrong care and medication to a patient especially if they have certain ailments already such as diabetes, HIV, cancer, etc.

 

MANY companies offer a cloud service for internal use as well as for their client base. It all depends on the size of a company and how much data they’ll be needing for storage, which determines price. Cloud storage is going to be on demand more than ever due to many facilities losing data from weather related occurrences rather than an atomic disaster.

 

Why the cloud now? Do you want to lose all-of your customer information? Do you want to lose all-of the data you’ve worked tiredly to gather? How important is the data that you must have it all? What would happen if all-of that data is lost? Do we really need all-of the data in the long run? Who is the responsible one(s) to store data? How do we get all of it in the cloud? Is cloud realistically safe?

 

There are so many questions regarding cloud storage since data centers and on-prem aren’t working out for companies’ due to natural disasters causing data and power to be lost indefinitely. It’s important more than ever that companies shift what they do and operate if they expect to survive times of crisis. People’s lives are at stake and it’s important that organizations prepare for when tragedy strikes.

Ironically, there’s a downside as to who will be efficient using cloud storage. Most medium and large government offices don’t have the adequate funds to pay into cloud storage and most of those employees are skeptical since they’re accustomed to old-fashioned on-prem as well as printed physical copies of files. These are the most difficult people to try to convince since they’re not very tech savvy, amongst other matters. Getting the less tech savvy employees of government offices on-board to use cloud verses on-prem, will be a struggle, but they’ll have no choice once they SEE that their paper copies are easily destructible.

 

Companies that specialize in offering cloud storage will profit from now on if not in the very near future. This means that these companies will profit, due to the services that they already provide. Most of the companies in cloud, haven’t had much success due to the immaturity of a lot of overhead who are in denial to change. They will prevail! They will succeed! When many companies finally realize that they’re business is falling apart, they’ll invest into cloud, like right now or at the latest, next week.

“Insecure, After-all”

 

 

With the political quarrels all over this world, governmental figures are blaming one each other that they’ve been hacked. There’s skepticism whether that someone who happens to be working for the opposing government, hacked the systems, or in these matters, it was more likely carelessness from political persons that allowed a regular “Joe” or “Sue” to access it all. Are corporations the next targets to hack their servers attacked or was it just governments from around the world that suffered?

 

No matter where a person goes to in the world, governments are broke and they can’t even pay employees since politicians used up all the money for luxury vacations with numerous security guards around the clock. There has become an older generation that has taken over governments around the globe, and it’s obvious, they’re not tech savvy. Younger people desire for democracy, while older people (mostly men) have reverse the times into a dictatorship. Most countries in the world have new laws to prevent women from receiving an education and for gay men to be punished due to their sexual orientation. Name any major country in the world, and they’ve all stepped back, rather than move ahead.

 

We cannot rely on our governments to keep us safe. They don’t have the tools and finances to have secure computer servers, plus it doesn’t help that their government buildings are always plugged in, which is a keep component for a real hacker to know. Corporations nowadays, are international based, well, most of the time. Their system servers are synced around the globe and oddly enough, are safer than governments! Tech companies, especially, have a safer system since they are using mostly cloud storage than the traditional on prem. Tech companies and corporations, also, have newer computers, whereas governments have much older systems. (From personal experience working in a government run facility, their computer operating system isn’t compatible with the newer monitors that are usually a minimum of 4K.)

 

Our personal information, healthcare records, and phone numbers track us where we are all the time. It doesn’t matter what we do, we can be tracked down with just a few little bits of information. Most persons in the world have at least one mobile phone and that alone is enough just to track down a person’s whereabouts. Most persons also, live and breathe by means of social media, which also tracks down a person’s whereabouts. At the same time, just because people have smartphones and use social media, doesn’t mean they’re easiest people to locate. There are more people who don’t use social media and a smartphone that are easier to locate because they’re personal information is on the internet and they haven’t really moved their whole life. It’s all relative where people are and what they do.

 

How safe are you? Would you trust the government or a business corporation with your personal information? Who is more reliable? Who is more trustworthy? Where do we/you stand with all this? Who’s safer? Who’s the bigger threat to our lives? How come our local government can’t seem to get it together? What’s with all of the disagreements? Who is really in charge of where we live and work? Who decided on these political figures to run my country? What’s the fate of where I live? Will going to another country be any better? Does another country have it worse than where I am? Was there ever real hack that chose the dictator types of politicians to be in power? What’s the future for me regarding my home country? How does this affect my line of business? Will these politics break-up my family? Will these politics put a divide between colleagues?

 

Tech corporations that operate the security companies, are run by mostly liberal types of people. They tend to be anti- government lately due to numerous countries mistreating their people, which they’re disgusted with since it affects them in some way. Most of the tech overhead still consists of white males and when political figures put a bad taste in their mouth, they may still not agree having a female leader, but they surely don’t want to see their home country fall to pieces! Tech companies tend to be synced even with their competitors these days since politics are what’s pushing them to solely rely on each other.

 

No matter where we are in the world, all of us need to be careful with what we do, where we go, and whom we meet. We need to be aware with our surroundings since there’s no way of knowing what will happen next, either towards me or you. This world is insecure. We’re not safe anywhere. Anyone can hack our smartphone and laptop without our knowledge. What’s the next step? Do we detach from modern conveniences to avoid all insecurities that our technology and government have against us? Can we save ourselves? If we can’t save our own government, we know our tech companies does save something politicians can’t.

“Taking a Break”

Every woman and gay man needs to take a break from having random hook-up sex with men. Why? The men that we get with, don’t love us, and they’ve proven that they honestly are disrespectful. Most men, no matter where you go to in the world, only care about one thing, and that is getting free sex whenever, wherever, and with whomever he wants it. These men don’t respect women (and other gay men like themselves) and are not feminists. They are arrogant assholes who just want to be in control. These are the same men who don’t even take responsibility as they spread incurable STD’s and make children they don’t even provide for.

 

These men aren’t just stereotyped black and Latinos, but this also includes white and Asian men who have been getting away with this, all while no one really says anything! ALL races and nationalities of men are overbearing to deal with, controlling, and insensitive. No race of men is any better, they’re ALL equally as terrible, but white and Asian men are the very worse since there are more of them around the globe!

 

Women (and gay men) need to take a stand against these men but the problem is that most women are too needy and would rather subject herself to his verbal, financial, emotional, and physical abuse. There’s a reason why these control freak men are going to continue their terrible ways, and it’s only because SOOO many women are naïve to give in since they’re mentally and socially weak.

 

How long of a time frame will a woman have a break from dating and having sex with men? It all depends on the woman and if she spends her time wisely to not really think about having urges for sex and lousy companionship. A woman (me included) needs to evaluate what her purpose is to have a man in her life other than for sex and to fill in the void of being lonely. (Not every woman can have a cat and/or a dog because someone like me is allergic!) Will he bring me up in life or tear me down? Will he contribute that I be successful all while he avoids vanity by not taking credit? Will he be employed in some way and NEVER ask me for money as he pays all the bills?

 

No matter where you go in the world, women are continuously mistreated by men. Half of the women in the world live in a country where they have no human rights and can’t stand up to men since it’s part of her culture that she will be imprisoned or even murdered for doing so. Women in prominent countries don’t honestly know how easy they have it to have control over men with their sex appeal, feminist laws, and intelligence by means of having a higher education. Sure, many women take advantage of their sex appeal towards men, but they don’t take advantage of the laws in their favor and allowed to be educated.

On the flipside of things, there are A LOT of women who have ruined relationships and dating with men for other women and men. Those women come in ALL races and nationalities, so there’s no finger pointing which ones are the most terrible of them all! Those conniving women are obviously out for selfish gain and have taken advantage of the laws in which they reside, going as far as accusing other women and men of violence against them! These same types of women have caused other women to lose employment to become homeless, wrongfully have their child(ren) taken away, stolen identification, robbed stores, and accused good men of physical abuse so they can laugh at being imprisoned. It’s painful to see that a woman would betray her fellow sister!

 

A good woman would take time off dating and sex with men, not as a feminist protest, but to help herself to grow as a person mentally, emotionally, and psychologically. It’s a struggle that’s extremely difficult for many women who have led a life of indulgence, then learning later that all along, all of it never made them happy, and at the very least, content. No women should just go about her life in sweats. Women still need to look at their very best and then some. She shouldn’t stop being sexy just because she’s tuning out men for an indefinite time. EVERY woman needs to be sexy looking and not give in to the deceptive offers from men! A woman should always look amazing and show that she’s also confident to decline the men that flirt with her.

 

What is on my agenda as a I go about my days? It’s my goal to always look amazing and not look frumpy. It’s my goal to be engaging with people I know and will meet. It’s important that I be social. It’s important that I recognize the advances from men who honestly don’t care anything about me and my life, who are ONLY after sex and nothing more. It’s my goal to share with other women and gay men to do the same. It’s my goal to be happy and content. It’s my goal to be confident. It’s my goal to prove that I don’t need a male companion to be happy and successful. It’s my goal to tell men, “NO” when I don’t feel comfortable. It’s my goal to make sure the men currently in my life and the others that come along, to be chivalrous. It’s my goal to make men respect me.

At the end of each day, we reflect in the sunset about what we’ve accomplished either that day or time in life. Is the sunset clear or is it a bit gloomy? If it’s clear, then there will be many good days and moments where we reflect of the positive choices in life.

“Success with Updating Something Old”

 

 

I had an interesting and filling week for the second week of July 2017. It started out with a luncheon where a tech company had revamped their hardcore products. The second event consisted of IoT (Internet of Things) and what VC’s (Venture Capital) had to say about the emerging market. The second day and third set of events is a combination of sorts, solar and semiconductors. The third day had to events: Google Cloud and S&P Dow Jones, yes, very different industries!

 

In the tech industry, it’s the most competitive of all the other industries as a whole. Why? Developers and start-up founders have all worked with one another in some form or another in the early days of their careers. All-of their ideas about how to fix certain problems clash throughout months and even years, causing various persons to part ways and start their own projects or another company overall. Since the early 2000’s, tech companies have been suing one another by means of using an “old” law concept of: copyright infringement and failure to abide an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). The tech start-ups are obviously new, having been created in the past decade give or take, and yet, most of the men and women operating them have not read up on the “old” business laws created in their country, causing legal actions against them!

 

When I did my research on some of the VC companies on several workshop panels of that week, the newer firms have been sued within the past few years over greed from one of the parties but have managed to profit from their investments in a VERY short period of time whereas the older companies took a couple of years to several decades. Business practices are changing and what the younger CEO’s and founders have been accused of is sexual harassment, being underpaid, and stealing funds from the company bank account and putting into their personal one. Older companies have had the same type accusations but with social media, the complaints are automatically on every news outlet where as a half century ago, it would be in the newspaper a week later. Being an investor isn’t just about investing smart, it’s about having excellent when engaging with employees, colleagues, customers, and clients.

 

Tech needs investors and VC’s need something to put their money into to bring in recurring income. Some VC’s don’t think that there will be a recession in the US or even the rest of the world, while others DO suspect there will be by the end of 2017 into 2018. The reason behind the fear of investors is that they see the business market crash since MOST people will be out of work due to machines doing more work that used to be for five to ten persons to operate per item. Most persons around the globe don’t already have proper skill sets and don’t have the proper education to back them up on top of it all.

 

No matter where people live in the USA or in the world, politics are hindering what people can be employed to do by continuing to limit their businesses and resources. For example, most countries in the world have created other ways to generate electric power by using hydro, solar, and wind turbines. In the USA, some of the equipment and parts that go into making any of the supplies is still declared illegal and unsafe according to building laws that were written at least a century ago! Europe and Asia have been active in creating more forms of alternative and clean energy that they are able to be sustainable during extreme weather changes and have sufficient food supplies. Is there any reason why a known first world country can’t adjust and compete with the countries that have a lower GDP?

What people to do with their own money, can vary person to person and their influences. We can’t control what people do to invest or splurge with their hard-working earnings. In first world countries, the average person spends their money on little things rather than what’s important regarding their needs over temporary wants. Just as with investments, most persons will invest in old ideas since they see them as a more long-term fix rather than on newer options that are taking over the economy anywhere you go in the world.

 

Many companies that have been in business for well over a hundred years, are going bankrupt if they haven’t already gone under! Many companies that have been around for as short as five to ten years have profited into the billions and trillions. For anyone who wants to invest their time and money into something that will be trending indefinitely, they will have to put their interest into the medical and technical fields since all other industries are no longer around due to poor sales and lots of losses. Emerging tech is helping not just the average person, but also for the medical industry to help cure or even detect diagnosis’s that people are born with.

 

New money needs to stay with other new money types of companies and organizations. They need to invest into their own even though many companies are a competition rather than as a client or some kind of customer or user. We can’t depend the old companies that can’t stay afloat in the new age where technology is taking over industries that used to take actual physical labor. Machines are making our homes, food, vehicles we drive, and our clothing. Sure, it does take human brain power to make sure these machines are up and running properly, but where are the jobs? They don’t exist due to the creation of more machines.

 

We need to update many things in our professional life. That includes our investments, living situation, and colleagues. Who we surround ourselves does influence what we do when making serious life decisions that we didn’t know was possible aside from where we lived and whom we’d settled down with or have children.  So, for today, make a list of what our monetary successes are. If the number is low, then we need to make changes to keep up with the world around us where we desire to or not. The world isn’t going to wait for us, we just need to catch up!

“Human Trafficking of Little Girls (And Boys)”

While liberals in first world countries are protesting the government, Trump and Putin, and equality of women, they ALL fail when it comes to issues regarding human rights. They have it extremely easy because they are NOT bombarded with the cultural and religious laws of where they reside.

In Southeast Asia, very young boys are forced into prostitution by their parents (usually their mom desperate for money) to be given to white males from the USA and Europe for the equivalence of pennies. Many older white males in America and Europe, engage in pedophilia of little boys in that part of the world where there are no laws to prevent their behavior. In America and Europe, there are laws that would put these older men, as most them are renowned business professionals, into prison or on a sex registry while they roam freely. Young boys that have been thrown into this type of sexual human trafficking, have HIV and don’t even know it because of the lack of healthcare provisions.

In MOST parts of the world, little girls are either kidnapped or sold by their OWN parents, what’s worse, their own mother to men! This is extremely common in Central and South America, rural parts of Africa, and MOST of Asia. Many poor mothers have succumbed to drug use and they sell or pimp their children out to pedophile men to get what little money for their next fix. Many fathers aren’t even in the lives of their children and the few who are around, also suffer from a life a poverty and hard drug use. These fathers also, sell their children for their next drug fix. This is a matter that social workers in America and in all first world countries will NEVER understand since it’s rampant in those extremely poor communities.

There have been men who documented these human trafficking stories, but not one will ever know what it is like since they are males who are usually white. White males have a life of privilege in comparison to the African and Asian children who are the victims of underground sex and child trafficking. White males are more notorious for being criminal pedophiles of very young boys and girls, where-as most parts of the world, it’s part of the general culture. These men will NEVER be able to empathize with the victims of child sex trafficking.

Women in first world countries have an extremely easy life. They have access to birth control, abortions, and get to engage with the sexual partners of choice; they even get to choose when or if they want to marry. Young girls and women in third world countries don’t have that options of their right to choose to use birth control or who to have sexual intercourse with. Even in these modern times, young girls are murdered by the men in their community and male family members for being victims of rape, for they’re no longer a pure virgin for their future husband they’re forced to marry later. Women in first world countries don’t have to worry about suffering a life where they have no rights as a human being. Even animals are treated better than the women.

Very young girls are forced into sexual human trafficking. In most parts of the world, especially in Asia, these young girls were born in rural communities where their actual birth date were never recorded. Many of them have been brought to America by their “husband” who had their birthday listed as being of at least eighteen, when in fact, these girls are young as twelve to fourteen. The US government ignores that these very young girls are trafficked in since they only see documentation that the girls are eighteen and NEVER see what they REALLY look like! These girls look like little children!

MANY wealthy men from America and Europe go to rural parts of Asia where they won’t be easily spotted, and have sex with very young boys and girls for free or cheap in price by the parents. Not only are the little boys infected with HIV by these pedophile men, the little girls are infected as well by the time they’re a teenager. With America and Europe having laws that imprison men for sex with little children, the men go to third world countries to engage in that terrible behavior and get away with it.

Human trafficking has been happening since the earliest forms of civilization. It’s ironic that human trafficking has gotten worse since there are more people on the planet, most are unaccounted for since many are under human trafficking or born from it. About several million humans on the planet have undocumented births since they’re the result of their mother being sold into underground sex slavery or trafficked by men. As advanced as half of the world is, the other half is still extremely poor where parents sell their daughters for money.

Even within the USA, men of various cultural heritage, have obtained very young girls to marry from other families of their heritage in the local community, or have retrieved a very young girl from their family country of origin. Since they know that the legal age of consent in the USA is eighteen, they ALWAYS have the young girl’s age on paper as being between eighteen to twenty, but are ALWAYS much younger. The US immigration services don’t meet and speak to these young girls, for if they ever did, they’d know that these girls were trafficked into the country.

The USA and Europe contribute to the most sex and human trafficking of children. They’ve ALWAYS shoved the notion under lawmakers and mass news media. MANY have even been on news outlets, verbally attacking traffickers, when in fact, they’re secretly engaging with young girls and boys in poor third world countries.

Instead of women in first world countries engaging in spending money to look good with cosmetics and surgery, they should use their financial funds to help other females. Then again, most females in first world countries are extremely selfish to care about anyone but themselves, and those who claim to care honestly don’t. Every second, a little girl is kidnapped or sold to be a sex slave to either wealthier men of their community, an old man, or prominent men of first world countries. These girls have zero access to a phone or even the internet. They will continue to suffer from such life tragedy because people from first world countries are too selfish to help them out!

“Back to Work, Businesses Are NOT Off to a Good Start in 2017”

 

 

While on my way to work to the downtown area, I noticed after taking care of some errands, A LOT of businesses have recently closed. Some of the businesses have been around for a long time while others were short lived. In all, they’re all closed with either a “for lease” or “for sale” sign(s) on the windows and/or doors. About a month ago, all those companies were in business, but now they’re gone. What happened?

 

The companies that are no longer in business in what seemed like a flourishing establishment, consisted of various industries such as tech, restaurants, privately owned coffee shops, bars, shopping stores, vehicle dealerships, independent schools, non-profit healthcare centers, and misc. start-ups. EVERY industry has been affected with the increase of prices for various retail space.

Also, many companies aren’t making any profit to stay afloat in their respected industry. It doesn’t matter how nice and friendly the employees are, if a company isn’t generating some income to profit, they will not last very long. Many companies have had no choice but to go under or have themselves be acquired by a higher organization.

 

What I’ve mentioned is above is in San Francisco. I don’t personally know how businesses in other markets have defuncted, since I haven’t been to those locations yet, this year. The year is not on a good start for businesses in San Francisco, especially when tech companies, restaurants, and shopping stores have been shut down, rather than be relocated due to remodeling purposes.

 

Many other companies that are widely known which are based in other major cities across the globe, have been mentioned in the mainstream news since the beginning of the new year. Why? They’re failing! Many companies hire too quickly, while the majority of the founders (usually white male) hire their close friends (frat bro from college) who refuse to understand any business structure.  Most start-ups in tech, new stores, and new restaurants, don’t know how to make a profit as well as they only comp their friends with free food, clothes, etc., rather than market to the masses. Any person with a degree will brag about which university or college they attended, but the mass majority of them have zero life skills to survive in the real world!

 

In the USA, numerous people put blame that Donald Trump was elected as President. In England, the general population blame the economic downfall on Brexit. Greece doesn’t know how to handle their money. India and China have their citizens in extreme income brackets of extremely wealthy living in mansions to complete poverty stricken living in tents or paper thin shacks along a street. Could 2017 be the next economic failure? Some industries within are thriving while others are dwindling.

 

With all the new products that are created and sold, business should be rising but few are. Shopping stores of all types are suffering because most people buy what they need over the internet. Young people may lack cooking skills, but they rely heavily on catered meals at work or fast food, resulting restaurants to shut down from the lack of business.

Retail and commercial spaces are getting expensive in all the major city markets around the globe. Commercial real estate firms would rather lease space to a company for a couple of years, rather than just sell a piece of property. They do this because after 2-5 years, a real estate company will be able to increase prices to the next tenants, so-as-to profit instead of suffer a financial loss. Even with residential property, home owners would rather profit from renting out apartments, rooms, and even their own home in a major city area than to sell it.

 

With so many commercial spaces available in the beginning of 2017, will those spaces be occupied soon to prevent a financial loss? Even in other news outlets, many well-known retailers and tech companies are closing their offices and shops in many locations. The economy is starting the new year as a failure. People are being shifted for employment and even those who were previously self-employed are working for others. It doesn’t matter what industry, they are ALL coming down to a halt.

“Hidden Figures”

20161217_153954_lls 

 

School textbooks don’t really teach about history when it involves successful women. In US History books, they definitely do NOT mention the women that inspired the film “Hidden Figures”. No matter where we go, there’s very little or even at times, NO reference of successful black women. Why?

Societies still want to suppress women, especially black women. There’s very little information available about successful black women in the math and science fields. School history books deny that they were around and if some of them are even mentioned, there’s very little known.

If there are some things to take home from the movie, “Hidden Figures”, it’d be that black women helped astronaut John Glenn with one his early expeditions to orbit the earth. Women have been disregarded in the majority of the reasons behind many amazing scientific discoveries and American black women have been ignored. The early 1960’s was definitely a different time in American history, especially since segregation was still legal and in most states, black children were put into separate school systems, not being allowed to advance in STEM.

Major book publishing companies are operated by white males. They’ve governed what was being taught in the American school systems. Many black Americans have paved the way through civil rights causes but engaging in STEM has been an underrated issue. If American black children nowadays were taught about precursors in STEM who were also black just like them, then they’ll want to advance into that area instead of something basic and boring.

The three female leading characters in “Hidden Figures”, were not just American black women, they were educated women who are also mothers. That alone, should be inspiring for ALL women to push for something greater for themselves and their families. Many women in current times, have fallen victim to not accomplishing much in life on a personal level, all because sciences aren’t influenced in their education while growing up. Many women from major city areas have mastered accomplishing in STEM while the majority from smaller communities are unaware of it.

School text books should be rewritten. Why? Because there are truths behind the most successful events in history and they involve women who’ve been underrated for their accomplishments.

Young girls to grown women of all races should go see this movie. Women will be inspired by the females who’ve come well before their time, paving the way for them to have advancements in STEM.
