How often do you take the time to fill out surveys?
Very often and I do it almost everyday for many times as well. For if you really want to make some money online with surveys, you need to really work hard for that. You need to sign up with a few websites and start to always do the surveys in a regular basis during th days and you ha d to do it fast as well. The reason being that some surveys will need certain amount of people to do the surveys within an hour or two. Once they meet the quota, the survey will be closed . There are actually some strategy that you can follow and don’t forget to sign up and start to do your work as well.Footnotes Christian Money Tips
If you left a survey for burglars to fill out the next time they ransacked your home, how would they rate the experience?
How did you learn about us?Rumors about rural houses having little Security.Location: 5/10Location was alright. Around 500 meters to the nearest neighbor. But unfortunately an hour away from any sizable population (20,000 plus being a sizable population.)Transportation: 10/10Transportation was top notch. The owners of the property never lock their Minivan or Pick-up truck. The keys are always left in the vehicles. Both are moderately new and somewhat non-descriptive so a perfect getaway vehicle. Not only did they provide vehicles they also kept trailers in a easily accessible unlocked shed.Security: 9/10Security was lax. There is a gate but it isn’t locked. Doors aren’t locked unless the house is left unoccupied for more than 2 weeks. No cameras made it really easy. They did have a dog which made it a bit of a pain. He was easily disposed of as he was just a Labrador Retriever puppy. Owners are very light sleepers don’t rob if they’re around.Products: 10/10No place has better selection. The place had 3 DSLR cameras, 3 Workstation class desktops, 3 tablets, 4 drones, 6 Smartphones, 9 external monitors and 11 laptops. All of the items were of premium design and value (aka Apples or equivalent). The freezers and shelves were well stocked the rest of the property was much more appealing though.They also had a shop on the property with many tools ranging from mechanics to carpentry to fabrication. The tools were of medium quality. The shop also stored 2 ATV for added convenience. The shop wasn’t the jackpot though.The shed was the real treasure trove. This drive in shed held heavy equipment all with the keys in the ignition for easy accessibility. The average equipment’s value was around $100,000, with a combined value of around $1.5 Million. Unfortunately the heavy equipment is hard to transport and the market is too small to get away with it.The products all seemed gift wrapped for the taking. Everything was easy to find as it looked organized.Laws in the area: 10/10Owners aren’t allowed to use lethal force or even have a premeditated weapon for self defense. A robber in the area once accidentally locked himself into the garage place he was robbing. As the owners did not come home for a couple days he resorted to eating dog food. The end result was the owners were charged for negligence of the robber. Laws almost protect us. Owners are not supposed to attack us in any way or they may be charged.Would you recommend to your friends?If everybody is gone a resounding yes. Unfortunately that’s not very often as the house is occupied by Home-schooling kids, a Writer and the owner is a farmer who mostly works on property. Also if you intend to use brute force, bring a weapon. All the occupants are big. The average height is around 6 feet.BTW bring friends to help loot. It really requires a team of people to loot the place.
Why does police paperwork take so long? I hear that officers can spend up to 4 hours to process a DUI suspect. Do officers spend that time just filling out boxes on a large stack of paper?
“Why does police paperwork take so long? I hear that officers can spend up to 4 hours to process a DUI suspect. Do officers spend that time just filling out boxes on a large stack of paper?”I was involved in several hundred (maybe close to a thousand) DUI and Zero Tolerance cases during my career and I can attest to the fact that DUI cases — especially the reporting process — were generally the most time-consuming cases I was involved in.The basic reason why DUI cases take so long to complete? Defense attorneys.First, I am going to be as clear as possible in this regard and state, unequivocally, that it is good and proper that a DUI defendant's rights must be a primary consideration. It is essential to the US criminal justice system that the defendant has a competent, vigorous defense. That defense, however, is the major reason why so much goes into reporting a DUI case.A maxim in policing is “If it’s not in the report, it didn’t happen.” Since DUI cases sometimes come to trial several months or even years after the incident, it would be ridiculous to believe that an officer would be able to remember much about a particular incident. That’s why officers write reports, and those reports must document a lot of observations made by the officer. Video has helped tremendously, but you can’t always count on video being available (due to problems with equipment or data corruption) or useful (a squad car’s camera facing the wrong direction or a body-worn camera obstructed by the Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) instruction book). Officers must be prepared and capable of writing very detailed reports on their observations of suspected DUI drivers.Successfully defending against a DUI case generally involves attacking the primary reason for the stop, the officer's decision to further investigate the driver for DUI, or the administration of the SFST battery. Of these three issues, most of the time and attention is given to attacking the administration of the SFST battery.Again, I'll be clear — it is very important that an officer knows how to properly administer the SFST battery. However, some of the attorneys who attack the SFST battery apparently believe these tests are done in a controlled laboratory environment, because some of their complaints are based on very exacting standards. For example, the SFST battery instructions for the one-leg stand test include asking the person to stand on one leg for 30 seconds. Some successful defense attacks have been based on the officer telling the person to end the test after 29.4 seconds instead of after the full “30” seconds. In others, the test is attacked based on another officer letting the person stand on one leg for 31 seconds.In other cases, defense motions to quash SFST results were successful based on the officer having a driver complete the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test, but mistakenly starting the HGN test by moving the stimulus to the officer’s left, not the driver’s left. While everything else may have been done exactly right, the defense motion to quash is successful because the HGN “standard” was established by officers moving the stimulus to the driver’s left. I have never heard of anyone actually claiming that the results would be different by moving the stimulus to the officer’s left first, but the test was developed and certified by moving the stimulus to the driver’s left, so if it’s not done that way, the results may be inadmissible.Another issue with HGN is the time frame involved in moving the stimulus from side to side, and how long the stimulus is held at the far outside edge of the driver’s vision (maximum deviation). Defense attorneys have successfully attacked HGN by timing the tests down to a tenth of a second, complaining both when the test is done too quickly and when it takes longer than the “standard” time.So… to make a short story long, officers must know how to administer the test and how to document that the test was administered properly. That adds a lot of time to the initial arrest and process of documenting the case.Again, to be very clear on the matter, I’m not saying it’s wrong or bad to expect officers to know what they’re doing while investigating and reporting a DUI. I would love it, though, if someone would re-evaluate the SFST battery including some of the variations involved in defense claims. For instance, does it really make any difference if the HGN is started from the left instead of the right? I’m guessing no. The same goes for ending the one-leg stand a half-second early or two seconds late, or any of the very minute differences involved in those defense claims.
Self-Improvement: How can I motivate myself to work hard?
Six years ago I was so depressed I thought I would kill myself. I had nothing going on in my life. And the girl I was dating kept calling me "crazy", would break up with me every day, and refuse to introduce me to her friends. I had three failed businesses that year and the year before. And I was going to go broke with two kids to support. This past year, one of my investments sold for 4000% of my initial investment. A business I started went from $0 in revenues to $12,000,000 in eight months. I published two books and wrote 100s of articles and do 12 podcasts a week. But I don't work hard. I'm about to go get a sandwich. I slept late today. I don't say this because it's so great. I'd like to be a little more effective in my work. It's a practice and not a formula. Every day I practice. Here's what I do. If you don't like it, that's fine. I think each person has to find what works for them. I used to not do these things. And when I didn't do these things, nothing would happen. Life doesn't stand still: it either gets worse or better. Eventually it gets a lot worse. We die. That's the only real truth. But in the meantime, here's what I try to do to be successful and work harder. - NOTHINGI don't read the News. I used to work for the news. I know what happens there. The more you read news, the less informed you are, the more time you just wasted. Since I stopped reading news, I read more books. i get more info. I feel more alive. I get less scared. I also don't talk to people who want to gossip. Gossip never made anyone a success. And I don't say "yes" to things I don't want to do. Else I resent the person who asked me, I hate myself for saying yes, and I'm bad at whatever it is I said "yes" to. So, in order to work harder, I try to find as much NOTHING in my life as possible. - EAT WELLIt's a simple diet but I try to follow it. No snacks. No eating after 6pm (so my liver isn't on overdrive when I am trying to sleep). Plates at 10 inches. (Studies show when you reduce plate size from 15 inches to 10 inches, you eat 30% less calories). Note! If your plate size is 8.5 inches, you eat more - your body is not stupid. It knows you are tricking it. And that's it. The Plate Diet. Or the - not after 6pm Diet- MOVE A little exercise every day is known to have just as much effect on your mood as a full dosage of anti-depressants. - SLEEPIn the morning, you have energy. At the end of the day, you don't. Which is why you need sleep. The average person needs eight hours of sleep. For instance, they took some famous orchestra and determined that the professional violinists in the orchestra were sleeping 8.6 hours a day. Don't think that less sleep makes you more productive. Whenever I get only six hours of sleep, I know the day is going to be useless. Preparation is how you win the game, and lack of sleep means you didn't prepare well. - GRATITUDEWorry never solves tomorrow's problems, and only takes energy away from today. Worry and Gratitude can't exist in the mind at the same time. Regret and Gratitude can't exist in the mind at the same time. Anger and Gratitude can't exist in the mind at the same time. Whenever I notice these things happening in my head, I try to replace with gratitude. Now I can continue my day - LAUGHTERThe average child laughs 300 times a day. The average adult...five. Dr. Norman Cousins did a series of studies on the benefits of laughter. It improves health, cures disease, improves productivity, and of course, makes you happier. So I try to watch standup comedy when I'm low. Or thing of funny things. Laughter heals the soul. - SURRENDERToo often I would try to control things that were outside of my control. For instance, when a boss is yelling at me, it's his problem. I can't control him. So that's when I try to find a better job rather than put up with abuse. The same in relationships. One of the most important decisions you can make in life is who you spend your time with. It's like falling into an sea of hands and hoping they catch you. When you surround your self with good people, you can surrender that they will catch you. When you are creative, you can surrender to the fact that your ideas will always catch you.When you sleep well and are grateful, you can surrender to the fact that your good health and spiritual attitude, will guide you through the difficult moments. Whenever I'm scared, I surrender. I do my best. I'm honest. I know good things will happen. IDEASI write down ten ideas every day. The Idea Muscle always needs to be exercised. It atrophies after about two weeks of no use. like any other muscle. People think that ideas are nothing and execution is everything. Execution is just a subset of ideas. You still have to have the ideas in order to execute. And the only way to have good ideas is to exercise the idea muscle. Every day. The result: your life will look completely different in six months. You will be an idea machine. You can be stuck on a highway in the desert with no gas and you will have 100 ideas to save you in no time. The idea machine is magic. FRIENDSThe people in your life are like a bonsai tree. It's always growing. And every day you prune the bad branches and keep the good branches. Do that every day and you get more productive. Every entrepreneurial movement, every artistic movement, every leap in science, was done by a group of people. There are no lone geniuses. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates had the HomeBrew Club. Jack Kerouac had the BeatsAndy Warhol had his community of Pop artists. Even Larry Page had the thriving entrepreneurial cultures of both Stanford and Silicon Valley and all the search engines before him that he was able to stand on the shoulders of. You can't be productive without shoulders to stand on. MESSAGE OVER MONEYI think people are scared. I know this. I am often scared. We live in a hard world. It's a sentence of frightening nightmare punctuated by periods of intense joy. The message I like to convey is that these ideas help you not only be more productive, but more creative...happier. At least for me, this has worked and transformed me from someone crying on the ground in a pool of vomit, to someone who wakes up and (some of the time) feels the full beauty of the day. I do the above. I surrender to it. And hope for the best.Read More:The 100 Rules for Being an Entrepreneur
Why does it take so long to get a prescription at the pharmacy?
The wait time given is not always the time it takes to fill YOUR prescription. It's usually the time it'll take to finish everyone else's prescription that came before yours.Your prescription has to be entered EXACTLY the way the doctor wrote it. If someone, such as an assistant, enters the prescription incorrectly but doesn't notice until the pharmacist checks it for accuracy and appropriatenes, the process gets restarted. The prescription gets sent back for someone to cancel it in the computer and re-enter everything once again. If you go to a pharmacy with inexperienced staff, lots of mistakes are made behind the counter, but the pharmacist has the final check. Trust me, there's a lot that can go wrong and can be missed if the pharmacist is rushed and stressed out.For instance, I used to work at a VERY busy pharmacy. We even had a huge room sized robot that counted and labeled the majority of our prescriptions. This would seem like it would make it super easy to work there. But, in fact, sometimes it made it even more dangerous for patients. Anyway, on a very busy day, the pharmacist made an error and didn't open up the box of fentanyl they were checking. Just so happens that 100microgram patches were put in a 25 microgram box. That's 4 times the dose that the patient used to receive. The patches look all the same except for the box and the size of the patch and maybe some writing but when you've been on these meds for a long time most people won't even think to read the package each time they apply the patch to their skin.We got a frantic call from the patients wife who, upon trying to wake him, she was unsuccessful. She called to inquire if the doctor changed his dose… That's when the pharmacist asked her to read the patch off his arm. This pharmacist was mortified that they had made such a huge error. It ruined them for a long while. Luckily, the patient survived. But, those mistakes stick with you forever. They're always on their minds when they are working and sadly even when they aren't.So when you wonder what takes so long to prepare a prescription, please be nice about wait times, you really don't know what the pharmacist has just gone through and they may just want to take their time so nobody gets hurt.
