How Can We Say No?

Saying No maybe as simple as shaking our heads in refusal. However, suppose, someone in need is actually telling the truth or we can’t possibly break someone else’s heart? How can we say No to them?
  • Consider the risk
In my case, it was a blessing that a private vehicle came into my rescue. I didn’t got late for work because of the incident. But, suppose it was really some scam – a prelude to a hold-up or abduction or rape? What would happen to my loved ones if something did happen to me?
  • Be sensible
Better safe than sorry. Some people may think us rude and distrusting. On the contrary, with awkward situations like they are the ones out of the line, they tend to understand. ‘The lady refused to take a ride because there are many crimes going on. She’s just being careful.’
  • Say No gracefully
You do not want to hurt other’s feelings. Better learn the art of ‘white lies’. Generally, lying is a bad thing but if you are not sure of a stranger and you do not want to offend anyone, making excuses can be a good thing. Remember, you are only protecting yourself and your family.

Triond Is Still Better Than Wikinut

At least for me.

A good Stumbleupon friend of mine and a moderator at Wikinut finally convinced me to join the site last month.  Wikinut is almost the same as Triond and more importantly, it has the creative writing category. Although Wikinut has the same plain blue design in all category sites, a user can make his article page more attractive by adding pictures.

Wikinut does not return articles, but they publish content that had been published in other sites as long as it is owned by the same writer.  I have managed to edit 16 of my articles from Triond and Factoidz and published them here. I also wrote two original works for Wikinut. I joined the community and so far, had 42 followers.

I have made friends with some people- Songbird and Denise, two charming ladies; Buzz, a friendly kababayan’; and geeta auroa, a sweet young friend. Minister Marlene is there too. These writers among the others were very friendly and helpful to me.

Unfortunately, after doing all the promotions and posting quality articles and studying my stats/ earnings, I found out that Wikinut pays so little.

I did some Math with Triond in comparison to Wikinut and was finally convinced that Wikinut won’t work for me.

Issue: Sleeping on the Job

Eight out of ten employees - security guards, nurses, teachers and office workers, admit that one to four in the morning and afternoon are the sleepiest hours. Model employees try to resist sleep. They would try to keep doing their work then discover themselves dozing off.

Some companies understand the value of sleep. They give ten to fifteen minute nap allotment to their employees. These companies believe that a few minutes break can help an employee freshen up to do their work better.

Is Tuseran Safe For You?

Whenever a customer asks for a cold and cough drug for an adult, Tuseran Forte is the first choice by most pharmacies. Aside from its convenient form as a capsule, Tuseran Forte contains phenylephrine – a decongestant; dextromethorphan – a cough suppressant; and paracetamol – an analgesic/ antipyretic. But, while Tuseran Forte is considered as an OTC or Over-The-Counter medication, care is still exercised by pharmacy personnel upon recommending this drug.
