Shellfish like shrimps, lobsters and prawns are similar to roaches, belong to the same class (Arthropoda) and even get their food from the bottom of the sea-which is usually dead material. Also similar eating habits to roaches...While vegans fight meat eaters... CNN pushes eating bugs
Glad that you are pretty prompt at taking vaccines (validated ones, that is)!In Belgium they decided to give the Johnson and Johnson VAXCClNE to people above 40 years old only after "a young patient"...died.
I got my invitation letter to be vaxinated, but I think I'll skip it. If I need to do 10 tests to travel, so be it.
I got all of my vaccines (yellow fever, hepatitis, etc) and have always been in order regarding that.
But I won't take a VAXCClNE made in a hurry to fight a Chinese lab-grown virus that isn't even that dangerous.
A few restaurants in my country are even offering freebies if you took the VAXCClNE...what a weird time to be alive

Stuff like this always blows my mind. These are all entire galaxies.
I am not sure but my guess is that you have to buy a security certificate.Programmers, what do you do when your software product is attacked by every single anti-virus software because it's not used often or whatever?
Do you have to register it with some kind of internet security cartel?
Freedom is being taken away everywhere all over the globe. I'm sorry to hear that. We have to fight for it and inform people, encourage them to stand up for their freedom. I am in the USA but we need to do this everywhere, including India.weird things are happening in India.
first government becomes less transparent. took citizen's donations for C0VlD relief and not being transparent about it, saying that it's a trust(PM Cares) that does not come under transparency laws and on top of that making situations worst by their inactions and wrong actions.
now when other country's governments are fighting to protect user's privacy, the Indian government tries to take it away, they passed a law where it is required to tell the first originator of the message and other stuff.
now Facebook is suing the government of India for this law as it will take away the user's privacy.
Imagine how fu*ked up the system is when Facebook is fighting for user's privacy.
Is it installed software or SaaS or what, and what happens when users try to use it? Code signing is one issue, since OS's have started making it harder for less technical users to install non-siged packages. If it's web-based, all I can think of that would get in the way is not having proper TLS certificates (which is an internet security thing, but more of a guarantor than a cartel).Programmers, what do you do when your software product is attacked by every single anti-virus software because it's not used often or whatever?

Oh, people use AVG? It could be specific to the one av software... if you haven't already, definitely set up one or more machines / VMs with configurations that are typical for your users, including AVG if that's typical. I suspect you might be able to resolve the issue by renaming a package or checking the security of the update server's connection. OTOH, av products sometimes block legit things like Windows Update, or just everything, depending on the user's settings.It's a desktop application that uses a database.
AVG freaks out when we update it.
They all suck... Here’s to that entire line of work dying on the vine in the future. They don’t do ANYTHING any more.Real estate agents need to get off their high horses.
It's been 3 days since I sent my agent a development deal to get more info for me. She told me she's at an offer presentation day 1, I said okay no worries, send me the info in the morning. I followed up last night again, and still no response. Now I look at the listing and its pending sold.
I'm dealing directly with listing brokers from now on.
Quick question about something I've noticed about mainly product businesses on Dragons Den, low profit.
A woman was selling a simple, but custom, silicone product on Amazon. She was in the top 4 for her product category, and in year 1 and 2 she turned over £246k and £368k with a net profit of £11k and £14k (with no wage). Even in year 4, with 37% of sales coming from their own website, the net profit was only £85k (turnover £550k).
Maybe my view of how much profit a business should make is swayed by FLF but £35k profit, without a wage, seems incredibly low for over £600k turnover. I'm just using one example from the episode I'm currently watching but I hear these sorts of numbers a lot. I know Amazon take a cut, and you have packaging, returns, etc. but 6% profit seems awful? In 2014 I started a drop shipping store with 3 t-shirt designs and with 24k turnover the net profit was £11k. They still get investment so I guess it's not as bad as it seems. Is it normal for net profit to be this low or is it that the businesses with good net profits just don't need the investment from the show?
“If you can scale big, then it's probably like anything else at scale... you're still rich lol.”I hear a lot of high volume low margin numbers from people in online retail (especially products that can be duplicated and aren't well protected by IP). It seems to be common in that industry, kindof like how restaurants are often not mega-money generators compared to their operating costs.
Seems like the people doing well in those kinds of businesses are the ones who find ways to scale into astronomical volumes. Basically they become so good at operations and finance that it makes up for the low margins of the products. So, you'll find them with 100s of products online (maybe by acquisition, maybe by continuously developing and marketing products), or 100s of restaurants, etc.
At a small scale, yes it sounds terrible to me too. Surely there are easier ways to make a modest middle class income. If you can scale big, then it's probably like anything else at scale... you're still rich lol. The low margins are a sign of high competition, either directly or with other products that soak up the same part of the customers' budgets. If you experience higher margins than others selling 'similar' products, it may be a sign that you've broken away from the commoditization that the rest of the market is settled into. Maybe the business even makes CENTS
If you have a big network of bright people and you aren't introducing people in that network to other people in that network, then you are missing out on big opportunities. It's an effective way to help people make a lot of money where you can get credit just for spending a few minutes to write an email.
Plus, after you've helped people this way, many will be eager to return the favor.
