I feel uncomfortable every time Google Chrome asks about saving my password whenever I login to my email or websites.  Why Google Chrome keeps on asking to save your password for this site.  Is this really necessary.  I find this too risky especially if you are using a PC or any device that is used by other individuals. It is also risky if you are logging in to your bank accounts or to your any other online accounts that has money on it.

Can you share your thoughts?

Once we had an interview via mail with a mother who wants to become an audio transcriptionist.  She does not have an experience as a transcriptionist, but she worked as Legal Secretary for 7 years.  She thinks that her typing skills would be an advantage to the this position.  She is very much willing to be trained to become one. 

She is a home bound as a mother and wish to work home based since she is doing some online business at home.  Her familiarity with legal terms makes her think that other business related topics can be easy.  She is also fascinated to do type interviews.

She also believes that her patience, interests and love for whatever she does would be her important qualities to become a productive transcriptionist.

Her advice is not as a seasoned transcriptionist but as a mother who wants to be productive and to be of help to her family despite her age.  Age and status should not be a hindrance for us to learn and earn.

We all know that in our modern world, media has been a powerful tool when it comes to communication.  In the past years, media has made communication easier as messages can be easily sent to anyone may it be of any form such as broadcast (television and radio), and print (newspaper and magazines).  Through media, people can easily be entertained and informed as well.  Having mentioned that media has been a powerful weapon, we cannot also deny the fact that innovation of technology has contributed much to whatever we have right now.  Innovation of technology is one of the reasons behind the changes we are experiencing in contemporary world.

As technology continues to improve and innovation is much apparent, social media has made its way to be a part of communication.  In fact, through social media, you can easily access anything you want and do whatever you want.  Through Internet, you can easily talk to a loved one, keep in touch with someone, update people around you, watch a movie, listen to music, play a game, and buy anything through online shopping.  As what they say, nothing is impossible with Internet.  As social media continues to evolve, change is unending.

I say this because I am a witness of how things changed from way back then to present.  One example is related to education.  Before, I used to go to school every day because I had to be physically present in class discussions.  That’s how it goes.  I need to be physically present because of the surprise quizzes, graded recitations, activities and seat works.  I had to be physically present to submit personally my home works and projects.  I had to be physically present to talk to my classmates, to ask questions to my teachers, and to explain my side when something is wrong.  But now, everything has changed.  Through Internet, I can answer my quizzes, submit my home works, activities and even communicate with my teachers and classmates.  Nowadays, teachers doesn’t have to go to school as they can just email their students in the same sense that we don’t have to go to school as we can just wait for announcements through email.  What I’m trying to say here is the value of going to school physically is slowly losing its essence because of the changes in our world, particularly in technology and social media.  And the sad thing is, future generation might not experience the things people in the past had experienced.  Soon, maybe there’ll be no more schools since everything can be learned from the Internet and kids have to stay at home in front of their computers or gadgets.  Kids might not have a healthy and fit lifestyle as computers and gadgets will take them away from exercise and physical activities.  You see, all these and more are because of innovation, technology, and social media.

Another example is the usual advertisements we see on televisions or posters.  Before, we can only see advertisements when our television is on, or when we walk along streets and roads.  Because of changes mentioned above, advertisements are everywhere, even on Internet.  What’s worse is: before, we can only view a certain advertisement when we click it, but now, we are forced to see it even we don’t want or need to.  Through YouTube, this is possible.  How?   When we click a certain video, an advertisement will play first and you cannot skip it until a portion of the ad was played already.  This is a smart strategy I must say.  Whoever thought of it was genius, seriously.  In 2013, the most successful ads were the ones played in YouTube.  Now, advertisers may spend less as they can just do this and not pay for airing fee for televisions and radios.

Much has changed already because of innovation and technology, and I know that more changes are about to happen.  As a student, I hope that these changes although most are for convenience, would preserve the practices I’ve had long time ago as nothing could be better than going to school and experience how is it like to be a real student.  As a future media practitioner, I hope that innovation and technology will be used not just for convenience, but to share and spread truth and fairness.  I hope these changes would help the country and the world become better by being united.

It is marvelous to take a trip and explore new places and things with family and friends. But sometimes it is also a challenge to take a trip alone one time or the other. Traveling alone can be a good experience for anyone, whatever our personality is, because it can enhance your personal outlook in life whoever you are.

Here are some good reasons why:

No worries. It can be quite demanding to plan a trip with a companion considering you need to make adjustments and coordinate everything with him. Traveling alone lessens the worries by just simply going and planning by yourself, and simply prepare your backpack and go.

Explore more. It is true that there are some things that you would love to try doing that you haven’t done in your entire life. A skydiving maybe or mountain hiking, or just simply eating dishes you can’t even pronounce. You don’t need to think if somebody with you will share the same interests as you would do.

Knowing yourself. If you hadn’t tried going by yourself, now is the time that you will realize that spending the time alone can give you more time to know some great things in yourself. It is more of a soul-searching, that there are more things you can do and accomplished only by yourself, without being dependent on anybody.

New acquaintances. If you are the outgoing type, this trip can give you the chance to meet new friends and get to learn new things from them. Being alone can be more approachable compared to being in a group. It would be nice to talk with folks you meet down the road, but just be sure to be extra careful to know if the people look and feels dangerous.

Savoring time. Deciding to have some relaxation like taking a spa longer than you want will not burden a companion if you are alone. You don’t have any obligation to anyone but yourself and won’t even waste the time waiting for your company in whatever he wants to do that you won’t enjoy either.

If you’re a fanatic of soccer and are planning to attend the 2022 FIFA World Cup, then you’d better not go to Doha just for the sport or you’re just plain crazy. Aside from the affluent sports cars and the towering skyscrapers, there is a whole lot more to encounter in Qatar’s metropolis. Here’s a few.

The first thing to do upon arrival is to grasp the subtlety of the fusion of deserts and a city. Ride a dhow cruise, a local boat typical in the Indian Ocean, and ferry across the Doha Corniche during night time to witness the urban lights of the metropolitan. It seems that it is not so popular for the visitors to do the dhow cruise yet in Doha.  I should have done this when I was in Qatar.  Also, if you fancy the majesty of deserts because of the movie ‘Aladdin’, then a desert safari far from the high-rises is ideal for you.

Because of the rapid modernization of Qatar, the Arabian lifestyle is steadily disappearing. So how can we still experience this? Fortunately, at the heart of Doha lies the more than a 100-year-old Souq Waqif or ‘standing market‘. It’s an open marketplace which sells distinct local products such as spices, clothing, pets and etc. Watch out for its occasional art galleries, festivals and concerts!

The historical Persian Gulf surrounding the city has been a prime melting pot of civilizations for thousands of years. The Museum of Islamic Art, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art and the Qatar National Museum will take you through the evolution of Qatar’s politics and culture.

Lastly, the most astonishing feature of the topography of Doha is the Pearl. It is a land reclamation effort for residential and tourism purposes and is situated on the coastline of the Persian Gulf. The islands in it have unique themes such as its Qanat Quartier which emulates the canals of Venice. Foreigners can actually reside in the Pearl permanently.

Doha isn’t just rich because of its country’s oil reserves. It has these landmarks which epitomize the gilded culture and history of Qatar.

Blogs contain delicate information, of great importance based on how they are exposed by the manner of expressing the proper terminologies for clarity and understandability.  The author therefore must be very supportive of his views and messages with education as its major objective.

Definitely, take the example of the students using the computers. The gadgets hands unto the students the latest and most informative topics toward the enhancement of their knowledge much more their abilities.  However, once the explanations in the articles are not so well-suited, the readers will misinterpret the contents and take negative ideas.

Blogs may create a wrong impression among readers or the articles may construe an opposite meaning.  This is the reason why they are simply written for ease of comprehension.

Blogs present reality.  They originate from reliable sources which the writer encounters, frankly written, yet, never to insult. Like as said that computers were invented for everyone’s benefit, it states that computer operators and parents must cooperate so that young students’ time and money are spent for the information they extract from the Internet, a few minutes for relaxation but never devoted to a maximum playing of games. Nobody oppose Internet but this may pose a hindrance to education once improperly used.

As regards the Samaritan deed of sharing, when the more fortunate could not partake, even ordinary citizens are capable of doing.  Despite changing generations, humanitarian acts never vanish.  This is the importance of man to his fellowmen; that no man could live alone towards survival.

This is how blogs work.  They are important in enhancing the interests of the readers to make them hesitant of why things are being done …. what they are all about… that once they find these right, they accept… once wrong, they reject.

In this manner, readers will be trained to analyze issues that puzzle them, and find solutions to arising problems. They compose the importance of blogs - the topics to be read, to be understood to ease difficulties, to entertain, to be more knowledgeable in weighing things and to attain best outcomes.

The word everything is misleading. There are no tools out there that will allow you to test everything. This article gives you seven tools that will test things that may be important to you.

There are a lot of things to test for when creating a website, and there are lots of different tools out there. Lots of them are not very reliable, and many of the good ones must be paid for.

Have a look over the tools on this list to see if any may suit you and your website. As a warning, be careful when you enter your personal details into sites like these, as you have no idea who you are passing this information on to.

1. W3C markup validation service

This is a validator that checks the markup validity of your Web documents in HTML, XHTML, MathML, SMIL, etc. Whatever you may think of validators, it is always good to have the extra pair of eyes on your website, even if the eyes are software. Yes, it is true that is will miss glaring mistakes and at times it will give you bad advice, but can anyone say this is a terrible thing? After all, the spell-checker on word processors has the same faults and few people complain about that. At least the validator can pull you up on things that you missed by accident such as forgetting to close a line of code.

2. Links Validator

Grit your teeth as you read, as this is not really a “test everything” tool as promised in the title, but it is very useful and should be an addition to your current set of tools. There are other link validators that may be attached to bigger software, but this is a good one to have on its own. It will analyze your hyperlinks in your HTML/XHTML document. It is great for showing you your broken links, but the easy to use options means that you can check linked documents recursively, or hide redirects, or show a summary only, and a number of other options too.

3. Gomez

This is a tool that will test your website for 30 techniques relating to mobile website design. Each test will be rated from one to five. The poor results will show you where you need to improve and the good results will show you where you are doing well. The results are pretty self explanatory, and it also comes with a number of tips to help you improve your website once the tests have been run. You can improve your site and how compatible it is with other browsers.

4. WebAIM Wave 

This will test the accessibility of your website and will test it on technical levels. The details are then displayed back to you so that you can see where you are going right and wrong. It may easily reveal the accessibility of your page.

5. Pingdom Tools

This is a tool that is a few improvements away from genius. It tests your website on things such as speed and does it by testing how long it takes for certain website elements to load. Using this tool you can see which website elements are slowing down your website the most. You can then remove or improve your heavier and slower web elements.

6. Ahrefs Site Explorer & Backlink Checker

This is a very good tool that you can use for free a little before you pay them any money. It is fantastic for pulling up information relating to your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and your backlinks. The great thing about this program is that it deals in statistics that it also puts into very easy-to-understand graphics/visualizations. It is not just an SEO checker that is dedicated to an Alexa Rank or a Google PageRank. It gives you a lot of statistics so that you can analyze and evaluate them as you wish.

7. DotMobi Emulator

This one is a bit of a kicker because it requires you to download that stupid Java browser plugin that so many hackers love to exploit us with. Still, if you have the stomach for it then you can use this emulator to have a look at how your website looks on mobile devices. It is very good for testing your website on very old devices as well as newer devices. It means that you may avoid quite a number of problems with regards to compatibility and bugs that present on other browsers or screen sizes.

Blogging is already becoming popular especially to netizens. Netizens are people who are always in touch with their computers, and is very active with everything that is going on around the net. The meaning of a blog is actually a colloquial term from the word Weblog, which simply means writing in a more personal journal about anything under the sun such as travels, food, or just about any topic that comes to one’s mind. After this, it is being published on a particular web page, either by the writer or a different set of people.

Blog definition can also vary into a verb form, such as ‘posting something on a particular blog,” or “ I want to blog about this park,” or anything similar to those. These blogs when posted on some sites can either be commented, or can receive suggestions which is a good interaction between the reader and the blogger.

Some people take blogging seriously, and by doing so, can make money out of it. Companies who employ bloggers would love to be read on blogs just focusing on the business itself, the products and services. This is one way for bloggers to earn, at the same time making their names popular for more blogs.

Others blog for fun. They just enjoy blogging every day, keeping other readers posted on what he had experienced on a daily basis. This is more common to people who travel and who loves to go around places that promotes some attractive tourist spots or serves a particular exotic food.

The meaning of a blog can all be the same, but the purpose of writing blogs varies. If you want to be a professional blogger, you might as well learn the basics. The basic can actually mean, you love what you’re doing and you make money out of it. That is true especially when you read personal blogs of other people who shares their day to day experiences.

There are things better written than talking about. Blogging is some form of expression that can be very beneficial both to the reader and the blogger.

In 2016, our blog received various comments noteworthy to post.  Here are a few of their insight about various topics:-

I have applied for a medical transcription position. The fact that I’m a registered nurse I still find it a little bit hard for sometimes I forgot the acronym of some of the medical abbreviations and their corresponding spellings. I think it would be easier for me to transcribe in layman’s term rather than in medical. As of the moment, I’m working as a marketing staff in one of the companies here in Makati and I assume that I will find it easier to transcribe business related materials rather than medical.

Feb 14, 2016

For me the easier to transcribe is medical transcription may be its because of my field of profession which is I am graduate of bachelor of science in nursing. As a medical transcription is to listen the dictated recordings made by the physicians and other healthcare professionals and transcribe them into medical reports. They listen to recordings by using headset, using foot pedal to pause the recording when it is necessary and key the text into a personal computer, editing as necessary for grammar and clarity. The documents that they produce includes discharge summaries, medical history and physical examination reports, operative reports, consultation reports, diagnostic-imaging studies, progress notes, and referral letters. The medical transcriptionist will return the transcribed documents to the physicians or other health care provider who dictated them for review and signature or correction of the documents. These documents is generally become part of patients permanent files. To understand the accurate transcribe dictated reports, you must understand the medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, diagnostics procedures, pharmacology and treatment. Or when you need medical reference materials you can also see it in your medical books if you have available or you can see it in internet. While the general transcription is what they called business transcription or other type of transcription that is not medical or legal. The materials that you transcribe may it come from almost anywhere or anyone but the most general transcription will generally come from types or categories. And that is why I choose to transcribe medical transcription.

Feb 14, 2016

As I have experienced applying / taking exams in General Transcription position.
I noticed that G.T is more likely a business transcription. The audio is all about checking stocks, delivering stocks, appointments, product reservations and for me it is quite easier than Medical transcription because M.T is more specific, e.g. Medical Terms, and I didn’t experience or I am not interested in medical terms. So, for me the general transcription is easier.

Dear Archie,

With your post, now I was able grasp an understanding of the transcription industry. I still would like to pursue a job on this field as this enhances my hearing and typing skills while I am exposed to other industries. I also would like to take the opportunity to be part of other industries, be helpful in their emerging developments and be a part of their way to success. Hopefully, many people will also learn this job in the future and be able to help them in many ways. I think, a mutual relationship can be built on this kind of industries.

I am a certified Medical Transcriptionist and has experienced 18 months of home-based medical transcription. An overview of General Transcription from your site has caught my attention and realized that transcription is not only in-demand in the medical and legal fields but in so many other fields of work as well and home-based at that. I am very much interested and I am willing to undergo tests and/or interview at your convenience.

General transcription is easier compared to Medical Transcription because it does not require the applicant extensive training to become an MT. But even general transcription is not that easy. Transcriptionist must posses above average typing speed. Good hearing acuity and proficiency in the English language.

Roselyn Hugo

I find it exciting whether GT or MT, though I haven’t experience both yet but when you try to look at it, they both give you experience, knowledge and self development. I may not have any experience in transcribing but I’m willing to try.

I studied medical transcription initially but I did not end up as a medical transcriptionist. I’m not used to medical terminology because I’m not a nurse or something like that that’s why it’s hard for me have a work in this field. This is the reason why I became a general transcriptionist. I’ve been working as a general transcriptionist for 3 years now.

Ginny Villa-Real
Jan 29, 2016

I’ve had some experience in general transcription in the past. I believe that even though it seems pretty simple and mechanical to be a transcriptionist, one has to have certain skills on hand, such as: language proficiency, comprehension, above average computer know-how (including typing ability), and general familiarity with a wide range of topics. My experience proved to me how useful these skills are in terms of efficiency and quality of output. The scope of topics that usually need transcribing makes it easy to appreciate how useful and lucrative this industry is.

Brian Bentley
Jan 25, 2016

As with anything else specialisation is the key to getting the best transcription, being an expert in the field that is being transcribed helps a great deal because if the person knows what the word actually means they can use better grammar while transcribing.
This is even more true when transcribing into another language, because often a sentence may have to be re-arranged slightly to make sense, or there may be no direct translation of the word so a close approximation will be needed.

Medical Transcribing is very much difficult for people who are not familiar in medical terms. They find it difficult to spell. General Transcribing may also be difficult if the speaker you are transcribing has a native English pronunciation such as Chinese, Korean, or Japanese people.
