When you’re a reliable person, you become the person people depend on. Whether friends or coworkers, you want to be able to count on the people in your life. Here are four ways you can be seen as more reliable.Keep your word: When you make a promise, you should come through. Being reliable doesn’t mean you have to say ‘yes’ all the time. There comes a point when you can overcommit, so it’s fine to say ‘no’ when you don’t feel like you’re up for it. Just make sure, if you say you’re going to do something, you get the job done.Hold yourself accountable: Nobody’s perfect. Every once in a while, we all mess up. The key to screwing up is to admit that it happened. Accountability makes you appear trustworthy, and as long as it’s not happening all the time, and you’re not blaming others, you won’t destroy your reputation for being reliable.Change your bad habits: Are you casually late all the time? Do you leave the house around the time you’re supposed to be at your destination? Do you pass gossip around the office? Think about not only your reputation at work, but your reputation with your close friends. Do you have any bad habits that might be holding you back from being seen as a reliable friend or coworker?Communicate: Sometimes things fall through because we’re not communicating well. Did you get a flat tire on your way to meet a friend for lunch? Before you call roadside assistance, send your buddy a text and let them know you’re not going to make it. There’s a big difference between having to change your destination and having to eat lunch alone.
Homegrown big data analytics company Bonza has announced that it has received an undisclosed amount of seed funding from East Ventures, one of the most active early-stage venture capital firms in Indonesia.Bonza will use the funding to develop its technology and expand its business operations. It is currently building a product to simplify data preparation and analyze data.“Our mission is to support organizations in making sense of their data from various sources, integrate it into a single source of truth and use it to build and deploy AI and machine-learning solutions for better decisions at scale,” said Bonza co-founder Elsa Chandra. East Ventures co-founder and managing partner Willson Cuaca said the investment would enable Bonza to build a platform that facilitated decision-making and monitored the results of those decisions by presenting insights generated from unstructured data.“Bonza has adopted an algorithm to estimate the effective reproduction number (Rt) of the COVID-19 virus throughout Indonesia and other countries in the region,” he said, adding that Indonesia needed metrics to monitor the impact of reopening public spaces on the infection rate.The start-up has recently released data on the nationwide COVID-19 Rt on its website.Rt is an epidemiological parameter used to measure virus transmission rates. It is often used by policymakers to devise COVID-19 plans and measure the effectiveness of control measures such as large-scale social distancing (PSBB).For example, if Rt is 2, it indicates that an infected person, on average, will transmit the virus to 2 people. Each patient will then, on average, transmit the virus to two other people and so on.However, if Rt is less than 1, a carrier will, on average, transmit the virus to less than one person. This suggests the number of infected people in the area will decrease over time until transmission stops.The Bonza Rt data presents a confidence interval indicating the range of uncertainty in its value of Rt. As the testing ratio increases, the grey area will get smaller, indicating higher levels of confidence.Topics :

I think we need to look at what we have locally and use it and GAP is one of them!” These are the words of Bishop Bill Daniel who is the local distributor for GAP; Garlic, Aloe and Parsley, which is being recommended to health specialists in Dominica.GAP is manufactured in the United States and is being marketed as the best blood cleanser on the market. Daniel told an interview with Dominica Vibes News that the product guarantees clean blood which in turn lowers blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar levels, giving better circulation throughout the body.“The product is called GAP; it is the acronym for Garlic, Aloe and Parsley. I am sure you will agree that these are herbs that we heard about since when we were growing up as a child. They all have a lot of health benefits. I have been selling this products and I think that it is a product that everyone should have. It takes care of a number of things; it purifies the blood. There are some people who are very fat and have sticky blood and most times what the doctors do is they ‘thin’ your blood. What the GAP does, it purifies your blood and takes away the dirty, sticky stuff and purifies it so that you have a constant flow of blood.” Daniel said as a consumer of the product, he strongly recommends that our health specialists and pharmacists sell this product which has the potential to assist many persons.“After using the product and you see the results; I can guarantee that just ten minutes after taking the GAP, you will begin to see great results. I would like to recommend that the pharmacists carry this product at their drug stores because people are asking for the product. A lot of the medications that we have, they have side effects. With this product; the GAP it has no side effects. It is a natural product and everyone who uses it can attest to that.” Daniel also pointed out that evidence shows that cleaning one’s blood on a regular basis reduces the risks of heart attacks and strokes, which seem to be very common in Dominica today.“We also have a large percentage of people diagnosed and dying from high blood pressure because their blood is not functioning right. We advise people especially those who have high blood pressure and those with large veins on their legs to use this product to normalize it. It gives energy and strength and I think that it is a product that everyone should purchase and keep at their homes”.GAP is packaged in a small bottle in the form of pills, which has one hundred (100) capsules and costs $120.00. He pointed out that it can be used with other prescribed medication as it has no side effects.“You can take it anytime, before your meals, after your meals or even during your meals. It can also be taken with other prescribed medications; it doesn’t have any side effects at all. I can give you the names of a number of persons who can testify about the benefit of the product. Just this morning, somebody that I gave a bottle came in this morning to tell me how this product is doing wonders for him. He used to have pressure problems, his pressure normally is high. It can also help people who get strokes or have strokes; this product will help you get your limbs back on track.” GAP can be purchased at the People’s Pentecostal Family Church at Goodwill, Your Choice Restaurant on Hillsborough Street, Fevrier’s Merchandise at Independence Street , the Pentecostal Assemblies of West Indies office on the corner of Independence and Hillsborough Street in Roseau, Shalom’s Minimart at Marigot and Austrie’s at Calibishie.Dominica Vibes News Share
