Try these 5 simple steps to prevent critical data loss

We all hate to hear "I told you so!" when we are recovering from the aftermath of the catastrophe which every technology user is scared of- their hard drive crashing. Even though we are all aware of the daring consequences of data loss FOREVER, we remain ignorant about the prevention of the same. Here is a list of five easy and efficient ways to prevent data loss.

1. Always Backup
This is one of the most known ways and believe it, there is no substitute to it. One should not only back up data, one should check the backup too by copying it again from the tape back to the computer. This may sound a simple task but it takes lot of effort and time to complete it.
2. Never store data files in the same drive as the OS
One should never store data or word files in the same drive as the Operating System. Whether it is system failure or a virus attack, Operating System is the first thing that gets affected and sometimes formatting the OS and reinstalling it is the only way out. In such a case, you are bound to lose all data stored in the drive.
3. Keep a watch at Email attachments
Beware of how you save word files attached in the mail. If there is a file with the same name as another file in the drive where the attachments are saved automatically, the old file would be overwritten by the new permanently. The best practice is to select a unique place in your computer to save email attachments.
4. Beware of static electricity
Your entire precious data can be erased completely by static electricity surges. Today's storage media is more vulnerable to extraneous static discharge.
5. Always classify the data
One of the most common mistakes we all tend to commit is to treat all data the same. It is not. Data should be identified according to its importance and then classified with utmost care, like some may be classified, some unclassified, some confidential and some public. Once this task is done, treat the data accordingly. This one of the most important steps to prevent critical data loss.

Signs You Are Sabotaging Your Own Success
Many entrepreneurs say they fear failure. In reality, they fear success--so they unwittingly sabotage themselves. It's easy to get wrapped up in the idea of success. You imagine how wonderful it will be when your company takes off and how you will spend the money you make. This is what you say you are thinking, but do your decisions and actions tell a different story? Are you telling the world that you want to succeed and are afraid of failure - but in reality, you are terrified of being successful instead? Do you inadvertently sabotage your chances? Here are some telltale signs you are sabotaging your own success:

1. You don't make changes.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. When you let fear of success control you that is what you do. You watch different aspects of your company struggle day in and day out, but you don't try new methods or put alternative practices into place to make tomorrow better. This is a common question all ask entrepreneurs who feel buried in their business. What did you do today to make tomorrow better? What technology could you invest in or process could you document to make your business run more efficiently?
2. You change course too quickly.
It takes a new initiative about 6-9 months to prove out whether or not it works and you must allow this time. You can sabotage your success by stopping good practices too soon. Did you stop attending a networking event before you solidified important connections? Are you keeping up with your weekly blog posts? Are you discouraged that no one shared your one social media post or that you didn't gain any followers the week you "tried out Twitter"? All of these important activities require consistency, patience and focus. The payoff is rarely realized until significant time has been spent.
3. You haven't set any goals.
It is important to establish goals to measure your success and to help you plan for the future. It's when you see your company passing milestones that you have an understanding of the success you have experienced. This feeling of accomplishment prevents you and your team from giving up too soon. The goals you set must include actions to be taken at each achievement--hiring a new employee, introducing a new technology or process, looking for outside funding--so you can successfully handle new business without it becoming a burden.
4. You take unnecessary risks.
Risk is an entrepreneur's drug of choice. While it is true that some risk is necessary to be successful in business, we see many entrepreneurs implode their core business because they take on an unnecessary risk or bet their main money making enterprise on something untested or new. It's far better to establish new ideas or concepts separately with a distinct budget and operating group to provide for transparency and accountability. When kept as part of the overall business, it's hard to measure if a new risk is successful or not and it can easily drag the entire business down. An awareness of the ways you are sabotaging your own success will help you address the tendency before it impacts you and your business.

Shorter people have bigger risk of heart disease !!

Short people face a greater lifetime risk of clogged arteries, according to a study out Wednesday that confirmed the long-known link between height and heart disease by examining genetics.
The study is the first to show that the higher risk is primarily due to a variety of genes that influence whether a person is tall or short, and not potentially confounding factors like poverty or poor nutrition. The study led by researchers at the University of Leicester is published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Researchers examined 180 different genetics variants in a database of nearly 200,000 people with and without coronary heart disease, which is caused by a buildup of plaque in the arteries and can lead to heart attack. It is the most common cause of early death worldwide.
They found that every 2.5 inches (6.3 centimetres) in a person’s height affected their risk of coronary heart disease by 13.5 per cent. As an example, a five-foot (1.5 metre) tall person would have on average a 32 per cent higher risk of developing coronary heart disease than a person who was five-foot-six (1.68 metres), said the study.
The more height increasing genetic variants that you carry the lower your risk of coronary heart disease,” said co-author Christopher Nelson, a British Heart Foundation-funded lecturer at the University of Leicester.
And conversely if you were genetically shorter the higher your risk.” Researchers hope that further study of the genes implicated in height and heart disease may lead to better prevention and treatment in the future.

For more than 60 years it has been known that there is an inverse relationship between height and risk of coronary heart disease,” said lead author Sir Nilesh Samani, professor of cardiology at the University of Leicester. “Now, using a genetic approach,” he said, researchers have shown that the “association between shorter height and higher risk of coronary heart disease is a primary relationship and is not due to confounding factors.”

How to learn from your failures?

'Failures are stepping stones to success', this adage signifies that failure is a matter of perspective and one should learn from it and overcome it.  Many think failure as the opposite of success. But failures are in fact the stepping stones of success. 

Failure means something different to everyone. But if you want to succeed, it can never be an endpoint. Be clear about what failure means to you. Remove the roadblock that is failure from your thought processes. Even the way you think of failure and the language you use to describe it makes all the difference. Take the stigma out of the word. Think of failures just as setbacks. And when you experience a setback, you reconsider, recalibrate and rebound. Everyone faces failures in life, what counts the most is how we bounce back and recover from it in the positive way. We tried to know how our colleagues take failure and how they learn from it.
In spite of feeling down, consider each failure is the pillars to success. Remember about the inventions happened in this world. If all these scientists stopped each time when they failed, what would have happen. They learned from their failures, correcting every mistake. So we must move on. When I come across failure I try to understand what went wrong and learn from it to be successful. Failure also encourages me to try harder and stronger replied one of the respondents.

For me failure has always been a motivational thing. It never stops me from trying nor does it discourage me to give up. One should always take failures in the most positive and constructive way by exploring what went wrong and rectifying the mistakes in the most appropriate way, commented another employee.

Amazing Benefits Of Black Tea

One of the widely consumed tea is black tea. Such a tea is obtained from the leaves of the shrub known as Camellia sinesis and it is more oxidized than the green, white and the oolong tea varieties. It has a stronger flavor than other varieties of tea. It is good to have black tea as part of one’s diet as it offers many health benefits which are part of its nutritional profile. The increased oxidation of the tea leaves makes them more flavorful and higher in caffeine content than the other varieties of tea. The flavor of black tea is retained for a longer time than in other forms of tea. The different health benefits of black tea are given below.

Benefits for the cardiovascular system – Research has shown that consuming black tea helps to prevent the onset of cardiovascular problems. There are antioxidants present such as flavonoids which help to prevent the LDL cholesterol from being oxidized. Damage to blood stream and artery walls is reduced and the risk of heart diseases is also lowered. Consuming black tea can help reverse coronary artery diseases which come on due to endothelial vasomotor dysfunction. The flavonoids are also effective in reducing blood clots and coronary vasodilation. Manganese and polyphenols also help to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by keeping the heart muscles healthy.
Preventing cancer – antioxidants like polyphenols found in black tea help to prevent the formation of potential carcinogens in the body which results in preventing cancers like that of the colorectal, prostate, ovarian, lung and bladder. Black tea can help to prevent breast, prostate and stomach cancer. The compound known as TF-2 contained in tea promotes death of cancer cells and allows normal cells to remain unaffected. Black tea can also reduce the risk of oral cancer in those who smoke cigarettes or use other tobacco products. Black tea prevents the growth and formation of malignant tumors.
Free radical elimination – free radicals can cause a lot of harm to the body such as cancer, atherosclerosis and blood clot formation. When one consumes unhealthy food the number of free radicals in the body increases. There are antioxidants present in black tea which help to remove such free radicals and protect the body from the onset of different ailments. Black tea is a good choice for such prevention.
Benefits for digestion – tannin present in black tea is beneficial for digestion. It can combat different kinds of intestinal and gastric illnesses and has a therapeutic effect.
