SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN WAYS TO ACHIEVE BETTER SUCCESS “WEALTH CREATION IS A NATIONAL SERVICE.” WEALTH CREATORS SHOULD BE HONOURED, NOT PILLORIED
by Admin User - Sunday, 2 August 2020, 09:28 PM
 

By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : In his Independence Day speech, Prime Minister Narendar Modi said, “Wealth creation is a national service.” Reportedly he declared, rightly, that wealth creators should be honoured, not pilloried .How does he reconcile this with his absurd new law making it a criminal offence, punishable with three years in jail, for big companies which fail to spend 2% of their profits on what the government defines as corporate social responsibility? Such spending was earlier voluntary. Making shortfalls a criminal offence will shift the emphasis from good outcomes to mere spending, with perverse results .Experts says if shortfalls in spending are made criminal offences for everybody, more than half of our ministers and officials will be jailed for not meeting budgeted spending targets approved by Parliament and legislatures .Reportedly success is a subjective notion, if there ever was one. Increase your confidence by taking action. Broaden your definition of authenticity. Improve your social skills. Train yourself to delay gratification. Demonstrate passion and perseverance for long-term goals. Embrace a "growth mindset." Invest in your relationships. These are the scientific seven ways to achieve better success in your life and venture and entrepreneurship. Check out the findings from several studies, which shine a light on what it takes to achieve more in life as cited.Be your own boss .Create a startup and be your own boss .Let it be small or big be your own boss .A small seed can become big tree .You have to have passion commitment and good idea good networking skills .A start up need to have a well documented business plan investment strategy and including exit options to angel investors in the start itself as later problem should not crop up with founders. You should have good product and it should be in need and it should have better feature than other products. what is not working discontinue it .Scale it as demand grows .Do not ignore Marketing .Growth capital is very important but do not over raise the finance and hire good talent as an when it is required .Do not over pay as it will be very difficult to manage the start up.Time is everything .Be different find right investors and venture capitalists and not vulture capitalists. Raise money intelligently find the right people be sure and flexible .Do not ignore open source technology. Well documented code of conduct is very important for every employee. and directors of the startup. Well defined Information technology is one of the biggest mass employers. Be different startup .Find unsolved problems of customers and solve it, everybody has problems. Many have many problems .Few problems are universal. Few problems are local few are national and few are international .Find unsolved problems. Companies succeed because they solve and understand the unsolved problem and come up with solutions that are very different from what others do. Put yourself in the customer's position; perhaps you would have experienced a pain point yourself. You may not fully understand the difficulty unless you experience it yourself .Develop deep customer insights. Secret of your success is in Passion, determination, vision, agility, team play, fund-raising skills. What exactly defines the DNA of a booming startup? What do some of the biggest names in the investment community look for in startups and entrepreneurs Clarity of vision Domain expertise? What key factors do successful entrepreneurs attribute to their triumph? Need to be understood diligently.

EVERYONE IS NOT SUCCESSFUL NEEDS DISCIPLINE SMART AND HARD WORK “OFFICE AND HOME” SAME FOR THEM “CREATE WORK FROM HOME ECOSYSTEM IS MUST”
by Admin User - Saturday, 1 August 2020, 05:00 PM
 

By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : You can script your own success story.Please note everyone is not successful and success depends n many factors and parameters .According to start up mentors , there are three primary motivations: One, you see yourself as very good at something and want to do more of it. Two: You see a problem, and you believe you can solve it ingeniously. Three: You see an opportunity to make money. Answer the critical financial question: Who will buy what you intend to sell? Why, and what determines their ability to pay? Do not assume that the market is visible and available. Be prepared to work hard, work long, and work with focus when things go wrong. A successful business can look back and identify the steps it took to get where it stands today. That is the benefit of hindsight. A business must find a way to persist, persevere and plod on. That needs a tremendous amount of positive energy, willingness to learn new things, heightened awareness about the micro and macro view of what is going on and persistent ability to rework. Work from home is most challenging and comes with own set of distractions as you will be living with parents spouse or children’s and you need to set boundaries and you need to have ground rules established and you could consider converting your living room or bed room converting it as your work station or you could go for a nearby co working spaces or local coffee shop or community working spaces . Your portfolio is your asset advertise oneself and additionally continuously enhance your skillets by online learning by investing on self learning and armed with this and other primary requirements you can start making money from home but be careful about pitfalls of freelancing. Upgrading your skills, knowledge and expertise is the only way to grow.

Contracts and payments scope of work charges deadlines advance and payment terms revisions and termination fees point of contact and copy rights and portfolio use need to be predetermined and clarity should exists in contracts and agreements including GST as goods and service tax of 18% is applicable to services . Technology freelancers are on a roll who have skill sets into new age technology like data visualization digital marketing and social media specific areas like google digital marketing data science analytics android app development and iOS app development programmes are witnessing a shift towards individuals choosing to be freelancers or entrepreneurs. The market rate for freelancers depends on the specific industry. Freelance writers for instance will calculate their hourly rates based on words typed per hour .To get a better understanding of your industry wage, you can check out the by Googaling Freelance Income Reports 2016 on internet .

THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ACT AND ALL THE LAWS APPLICABLE TO ANY CITIZENS OF INDIA WILL ALSO APPLY TO CYBER JOURNALISTS
by Admin User - Friday, 31 July 2020, 05:32 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Online Journalists are people who gather information that is relevant to the public and communicate this over various media. An online journalist would collect, write or edit news-reports, articles, features, interviews, opinion pieces, photographs or even podcasts and videos on news and events on an online platform. If you are located and work from India, all the laws applicable to citizens of India will also apply to you. These include the Constitution of India, Press Laws and Acts, provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Criminal Procedures Code, Broadcasting regulations etc. The Press Council of India has a comprehensive list of acts applicable for journalists. Besides, the amended Information Technology Act, 2000, governs all electronic communication. So, if a print, television, radio or mobile media journalist transmitted any information electronically, the provisions of the IT Act would also be applicable. Print media content is governed by a number of laws, including the Constitution of India’s provisions on freedom of expression and privacy, other specific laws on registration of publications, provisions in the Indian Penal Code, etc. An online article will attract different provision of the Information Technology Act, along with all the other laws.

If you are a print journalist and your report appears online in Media Company’s website, Information Technology Act applies to you. Unlike print publications, online news sites or portals do not have to be registered in India. All you need is a domain name registration. Only some press laws will apply to a news website in India. Online media does not come under the purview of the Press Council of India, the Working Journalists Act, The Press and Registration of Books Act, 1867, The Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Act, 1956 and the Delivery of Books and Newspapers (Public Libraries) Act, 1954.However, since the amended Information Technology Act, 2000, governs all electronic communication, a news website will come under its purview. Reporters and web editors are legally responsible for content on a site. Under the amended IT Act, 2000, all responsibility for ensuring that no ‘objectionable’ content is uploaded online and for taking down content will vest with the intermediary. Face book relies on its user community to determine if the content is offensive or not. Every wall post, photo, note etc. has a report abuse link embedded in it. Unlike Twitter, Face book maintains no record of censorship. The intermediary hosting your site, your editor, reporter will be held responsible. Content on social media networks is usually public, unless users activate privacy settings to restrict viewers. So journalists can use content from social media networks but it is a good idea to be ethical in using material that can compromise privacy.If a blogger posts blogs that are journalistic in nature, i.e., the blogger uses the blogging platforms for posting reports, views, opinions, comments on events, then the blogger can be called a journalist. Bloggers and journalists share the same protection under the law because article 19 (1) (a) that defines freedom of expression applies to all citizens. The media in India does not enjoy special privileges under the law unlike US, where freedom of press was ratified by the First Amendment .A journalist can publish their stories on their personal blogs. A lot depends on the nature of contract with the concerned media organisation s/he works for. A journalist can publish their stories giving an attribution to the employer that published the story originally. If the contract is such that the journalist retains her/his copyright of the story, then the journalist ought to mention it clearly.An online journalistic report seeks to collect and provide information that has a public interest. A blog post can be about a wide range of subjects written in various styles- from one’s opinions, reports and factual information to personal accounts of one’s travels, cookery, pets, health, philosophy etc. Legally, both online journalistic reports as well as blog-posts have the same status under the IT Act.

“EXPERTS HAVE CLAIMED”FOLLOWING “NEW RESEARCH” COLLEGE CLASSES MUST BEGIN REPORTEDLY AT 11AM INSTEAD OF 9 AM
by Admin User - Tuesday, 28 July 2020, 09:01 PM
 

By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : Reportedly experts have claimed, that traditional 9am lectures should be scrapped and students should be allowed to start their day later, following new research that suggests early mornings interfere with young adults' body clocks. According to researchers at The Open University , lectures should start no earlier than 11am for students to be able to perform at their best. Working with researchers at the University of Nevada, experts analyzed the study patterns of 200 students and found academic performance was at its best between 11am and 9.30pm. If universities were to choose a new standard starting time, the group suggested “anywhere between 11am and 1pm“ would be “close to optimal“ for the average undergraduate student. “Sleep loss, in turn, impairs academic performance and also elevates risks of obesity , depression, and drug abuse. While genetic factors lead to variations in circadian rhythms of up to four hours from the average, age and gender can also play a part in determining how easily a person can learn early in the morning. The findings conflict with another recent study that suggested students should readjust their biological clocks to cope with early mornings by avoiding the lights from smart phones and laptops at night.

Reportedly Author Anthony Trollope published 47 novels, writing 1,000 words an hour between 5am and 8am every day . “All those I think who have lived as literary men will agree with me that that three hours a day will produce as much as a man ought to write,“ he wrote. Charles Dickens worked in his study for only five hours a day--from 9am until 2pm, with a break for lunch.Not just writers, even great mathematicians and scientists didn't slog. French mathematician Henri Poincaré, who wrote 30 books and 500 papers, “did his hardest thinking between 10am and noon, and again between 5 and 7 in the afternoon,“ says an article in Nautilus.“.Journalist Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Outliers spread the idea that 10,000 hours of practice can make you an expert in any field, but the Nautilus article points out Gladwell glossed over the importance of rest. “The top performers actually slept about an hour a day more than the average performers.“Rest has been reduced to a blind spot these days as everyone has a tendency to “focus on focused work. This is how we've come to believe that world-class performance comes after 10,000 hours of practice. But that's wrong. It comes after 10,000 hours of deliberate practice,12,500 hours of deliberate rest, and 30,000 hours of sleep.

EARN MORE “MONEY” BY CREATING “STUNNING VIDEOS” CUT, SLICE, AND EDIT ANY VIDEO WITH OPENSHOT VIDEO EDITOR
by Admin User - Monday, 27 July 2020, 10:40 PM
 

By : M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : Open Shot is a free, simple-to-use, feature-rich video editor for Linux Windows and Mac. The brainchild of programmer Jonathan Thomas, OpenShot has garnered a large and enthusiastic following for many reasons, one being Thomas’s responsiveness to user feedback. To quickly see the best uses of OpenShot, check out the beautifully created videos using open shot. “In short OpenShot is: 1. Easy to use. 2. Can work with HD video smoothly 3. Can change video colouring/lighting, among other things 4. Gives users the ability to add effects. 5. Can render video at a very high speed (especially when compared to Windows editing programs). This really makes OpenShot a powerful addition to the Linux community.” Help manuals for OpenShot are available in several languages – and each includes a simple "Learn OpenShot in 5 Minutes" section. When video production is required of all students, it makes sense to steer students towards an easy-to-use, yet powerful free video editor. OpenShot is that video editor. OpenShot is, quite simply, a cross-platform, free software (GPL licensed) video editing package. It’s available for Linux and, according to their download page, for Windows and Mac, as well.Interestingly, OpenShot is distributed via appimage. That means they provide a single binary that can be run on just about any modern Linux distribution. So, what makes OpenShot 2.3 so ridiculously awesome?.To start with, the new transformation tool is absolutely stupendous. It allows you to easily add some very cool animations to your videos. Simply drop an item (say, an image of your kid playing hockey) on the timeline. Select a spot on the timeline to start the animation, select Transform, then adjust the image however you want in a WYSIWYG way. Drag it around. Resize/reshape it. Then move to the next spot on the timeline that you want the image to do something else and repeat. OpenShot will do the hard work of calculating and rendering all of the frames in between those two points for you. The result is a nice smooth animation put together in just a few minutes. Not only is it easy, but the performance was quite peppy. This new version also adds to create titles for your videos. This is, hands down, the most fun title editor . Some of the built-in templates are a ton of fun and look absolutely fantastic.

“TIME TO SHARPEN RTI TO FIX CORRUPTION IN THE SYSTEM” PASSED ON 12 MAY 2005 AND PRESIDENTIAL ASSENT ON JUNE 15, 2005 IT CAME INTO FORCE ON OCTOBER 12, 2005
by Admin User - Sunday, 26 July 2020, 05:10 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: It reported that ever since the Right to Information (RTI) Act was implemented in 2005, common people, mostly activists, have been using it as a strong weapon to fight against corruption in several parts of the country. RTI has helped expose some of the biggest scams in the history of the country. But this strong weapon may have been blunted or is less effective in recent times . It is time, perhaps, to sharpen it to fight the wrong and make right the system. “RTI is a wonderful tool to regulate or control corruption rather than completely eradicate it and the important part is to understand when to apply an RTI for it to be most effective,”. If an RTI is filed regarding the funds of any projects or schemes before it is fully implemented, it can prevent the authority concerned from misusing the funds, as it is like alerting them that the public eyes are on them.

In a terse order, the CIC Commissioner said loss of records that are required to be kept and maintained permanently, if considered as evidence in a case, should invite criminal complaint against officials under section 201 of Indian Penal Code (punishable with imprisonment which is directly proportional to seriousness of offence charged from seven years to 10 years and for life.I have filed RTI Application to additional DC and PIO Bengaluru Urban District to provide me action taken report and copy of departmental enquiry conducted to fix the responsibility for loss of record and also provide copy of police complaint filed in respect of missing file of Revenue Commissioner order in RA 276/42-43 Dated 20-11-1944 and order of Deputy Commissioner Bangalore in RA 74/41-42 dated 2-06-1941 in respect of survey Number 66 of Kodigehalli Bangalore North Taluka as you have reported that file is not available in record room of DC office by your letter dated 12-01-2015 copy of which is enclosed with this RTI Application .DC need to look into citation of KIC order in 6745 COM 2008 PARA 4 of the order. Public authorities cannot take excuse of “missing files” for denying information under the RTI Act as such claims have no legality under the transparency law for withholding records, the Central Information Commission has held.“Unless proved the record was destroyed as per the prescribed rules of destruction/retention policy, it is deemed that record continues to be held by the public authority,” Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said in his order.The case came before the CIC after one Om Prakash sought to know information from Land and Building Department of Delhi Government regarding allotment of alternative plot in lieu of his land acquired by the Government.The Department admitted before the Commission that the relevant file is missing and it could not be traced even though the officers personally inspected room of the Land and Building Department after receiving the RTI application. The official representing the department said there is no possibility of retrieving the missing record .In a terse order, the Commissioner said loss of records that are required to be kept and maintained permanently, if considered as evidence in a case, should invite criminal complaint against officials under section 201 of Indian Penal Code (punishable with imprisonment which is directly proportional to seriousness of offence charged from seven years to 10 years and for life.) “Claim of file missing or not traceable has no legality as it is not recognised as exception by the RTI Act.

By practice “missing file” cannot be read into as exception in addition to exceptions prescribed by RTI Act.“It amounts to breach of Public Records Act, 1993 and punishable with imprisonment up to a term of five years or with fine or both,” . The CIC Commissioner also issued a show cause notice to the Land and Building Department official asking why maximum penalty of Rs 25,000 be not levied upon him.Mr. Acharyulu recommended to the public authority to consider the issue “seriously” as the Commission has been hearing excuse of missing files on many occasions and also to initiate action under Public Records Act, 1993 against responsible persons.“The public authority also has a duty to designate an officer as records officer and protect the records. A thorough search for the file, inquiry to find out public servant responsible, disciplinary action and action against under Public Records Act, reconstruction of alternative file, relief to the person affected by the loss of file are the basic actions the public authority is legitimately expected to perform,” he said.He said, prima facie, public authority cannot deny the right of the appellant by putting forward an excuse of the missing file.“If the file is really not traceable, it reflects the inefficient and pathetic management of files by the Public Authority. If the file could not be traced in spite of best efforts, it is the duty of the respondent authority to reconstruct the file or develop a mechanism to address the issue raised by the appellant,” he said.
