September 14th, 2012 Comments off

We love our social sites, but let’s be honest, they can be very distracting. I’m sure we are all guilty of spending more time than we care to admit on our favorite social site. The thing is, it’s not that big of a deal when you are at home, however, when you are at work, it can affect your job immensely.

Many businesses are taking matters into their own hands, and blocking social media sites on their network so that employees cannot get on them. This can be effective, or we could all take a step back and take a break from the addictive social sites that seem to waste so much of our precious time.

Check out the infographic below presented by RedeApp to learn more about how distracting social media really is.

September 12th, 2012 Comments off

You would never dream of shipping your family, or would you? Before shipping your family, there are a few guidelines to follow to make sure they get there in style and on time. And don’t forget to choose next day shipping!

It’s all about making your loved one comfortable on the trip. When shipping a someone warm blooded, the temperature must remain between 45 and 85 degrees at every city on the route. Also, be sure the package is made of wood, plastic or a similar material with a minimum of 275 pounds bursting strength and large enough to stand, sit, and lie comfortably, and in a natural manner. The box should be a standard shipping container and be designed so that the living cargo doesn’t topple over.

You don’t want any suffocating to occur, always ventilate the package. A minimum of 16% of the total surface area should be ventilated. If you’re traveling in winter, use fewer holes to maintain a comfortable and warm temperature within the package.

So, whatever it is you’re shipping, make sure it arrives in style. And don’t forget to label your package with “LIVE ANIMAL”, to inform the shipper that you have precious cargo on board.
