The smell of your mother cooking delicious food for you is something every kid looks forward to. Whether it be desert or the chicken or the paneer tikka masala, everything that is in the kitchen is thought to be good. However, it is said to be one of the most neglected places in a home. Seriously a toilet is well looked after than a kitchen. You need a gas stove or an induction cooker, some utensils and you are good to go. But it can only be much more convenient and functional of you spice up things a bit, and I’m not talking just about what you cook on the frying pan. Here are some tips you can use to improve your kitchen.
 
  • Add or change the lighting
Lighting will make all the difference when you take pictures and how your décor looks. When it comes to a kitchen, switching on those warm color led, or that little chandelier will inspire you to make do some of the best dishes or cook everything to perfection. Just changing one light bulb is all it takes to make things better.
  • Change drawers or shelf liners
Chances are you bought it and left it as it was. Termites, faded paint, etc, all of this would make it look like you don’t care about your space. Just changing these would end up making the kitchen look like you had a makeover. And all of this can be had at only 5 dollars. Change the colors. Put new bright brown or shades of grey to match your décor and paint. Just make it look like you want to have your kitchen beautiful as it is…
  • Put a rug on the floor.
Ugly tiles? It is okay. You can replace just TWO tiles, and that would make all the difference in your kitchen. Right now there are a lot of modular kitchen tiles coming out that would help you change your kitchen flooring well. Or if you don’t want to put too much effort, then buy a rug. It’ll get the job done. There are tiles which look like rugs now that you can easily install like modular tiles. Try it. see the difference rug
  • Replace the faucet
Okay, you cant break apart your floor because it’s a rental apartment. Okay, then a very straightforward solution. Change your faucet. Changing your faucet can help you get a much more functional one than the last one you had. It probably needed to be closed much more tightly than was necessary because it kept leaking. Or you could get a higher one than the one which was to close to sink and be able to wash your dishes faster. Either way get something that looks good and is shiny; you won’t regret it.
  • Update the hardware
We all have that one doorknob or switch or tap that doesn’t work or isn’t helpful or functional. Replacing these with much more functional and better-looking ones will help you feel nice about the place you stay in and will make you respect yourself.

To or for Net Neutrality?

Net neutrality is a happening of the year with literally everyone taking the side of the internet to support it. Net neutrality is just a principle which states that people should be able to access information of any kind and in any manner without any discrimination without any control from the service providers. In other words, there shouldn’t be any control over what you can see and watch and access online. Without the neutrality of the net in place, there are many service providers taking advantage of this to reap the most amount of money. Many ISPs like to, for instance, Verizon, Comcast, idea broadband that redirects people to other websites when we search for particular information or link mainly because this is where they make a lot of money.
  Service providers are being paid to make sure that their websites are the ones being clicked on the most. The ad revenue that they receive is in the millions of dollar range. Net neutrality would prevent this by making sure that people are being allowed to use the internet lawfully and to content equally without their being any preference of website and ISP user. Internet service providers are being provided with faster internet just so that sites like Google and google chrome work faster than other search engines and web browsers. Now because of this, even online access is charged, and companies would end up charging consumers with extra because of the additional expenses it has to offer. On January with the Verizon Lawsuit that took place, the Washington DC court struck down an appeal to bring down the net neutrality. The court made It clear that such access of the internet was indeed being built on flawed grounds; however, it doesn’t mean that they have to shut it down entirely and that it can be made better over time. The main argument was that internet service providers choose who are the winners and who are the losers. Online services like facebook, skype, youtube, etc have to pay these ISPs just so that they’re content is being delivered much quicker and faster to the users. This is absurd as it would spoil the experience for those who have other broadband options .the reputation of the broadband goes down, and so does its internet speed. The FCC opened its ears to the public online by accepting proposals for Net Neutrality rules and received a 4 million record-breaking comments on its ideas that it had from the public.
  With this the FCC has passed, on the 26th of February, the open internet order, where the strongest of net neutrality is being implemented. There is no longer any blocking or discrimination. This led to a lot of changes by many ISPS companies with them rushing around changing their policies and terms of condition to meet these changes.  However, the war isn’t over as the newly appointed chairman of the FCC Ajit pair has set out to eliminate net neutrality and is currently winning.

Four things I knew before I started my own business.

business
There have been many people who have started their own business after working in a company for many years. Everyone dreams to be successful and most people do. It takes their dedication and passion towards what they are doing to reach where they want to. There’s the hiring of the first clients, hosting your workshops, freelancers, making your website, creating your online course, the list goes on. There is a steep learning curve that is needed to run the ride smoother. Here are four things you need to know before you start your own business
  • Outsourcing your job will feel uncomfortable
With self-employment, you feel like there’s a lot of things you should be doing on your own. When a person starts a business, they usually try doing everything on their own. There are many articles which state that you cannot be doing that because it is unhealthy but, starting any business of your own will make you into a control freak because everything is at stake when you put your money and time on the line. When you do this, however, you end up losing a lot of your precious time and effort. Outsourcing your job which is not in your expertise would get everything you need to be done faster with higher quality output. Whether It be making a logo or a website or anything in general, if you feel like you need to be putting your time into something that matters for your company to be successful, then do it. growth
  • Investing in the right software and tools will help you by supporting growth
People would usually start businesses by running low overhead low-cost operations which means that expenses are at the minimum. Doing a lot of things manually instead done putting your money into tools which would help you with your work exponentially otherwise would be critically damaging for your work especially for your clients. Using an automated email process, investing into tools like QuickBooks pro to help keep track of your business finances, scheduling, etc, all could have been done more comfortable and faster had you put your money into the right tools and software. office
  • Your business will be the best
When something like this is on the line, then you become in charge. You become a perfectionist. It helps you keep the high-quality standards you were looking forward. Sometimes however we tend to put too much time and investment into things from which we would walk away from later on. Coming up with your company name, running surveys to see which would be the best,  trademarking, too much effort into a name which wouldn’t matter if your work isn’t good for your clients. Later the name would just be limiting for you. Putting too much into a website which you would then change because all the material you used in it looks terrible. Use your time and make sure that when you make things, make it simple. You won’t regret it
