Late last month, a photo of an employee at a South Caroline grocery store helping an elderly customer went viral. The employee, Brandon Rollins, works at Ingles and was celebrated for his act of kindness recently by his fellow employees.
In some sense, Brandon was just doing his job. Customer service is key, and things like this are exactly what is meant by the standard of going “above and beyond” one’s job description. Someone could look at this photo and argue that Brandon was simply doing what he is paid to do, which may be true.
However, to me, this is one small example of how the world is still overall a pretty good place. No one is saying that this one person helping one customer at one grocery store in South Carolina is going to save the world, but this one act of kindness ripples forth and crashes against a narrative that often paints the future in gloomy colors. Really, Brandon could have let this elderly customer handle her groceries on her own and wouldn’t have been reprimanded by his employer, but that he didn’t and that he went out of his way says something. It says that while there is a lot of bad happening in our world that deserves anger and sadness, there are many more acts of kindness happening all around us that have the power to inspire and empower us. Brandon’s is just one of them.
So, check out this photo. It’s okay to feel warm and fuzzy inside, too.
For the past 40 years, the present and the future of technology have always been revealed at an annual event which has always been held in the month of January in Las Vegas. You will always find anything current and advanced at this event.
As it had initially been reported, the CES 2016 didn’t actually change the world, instead it showed how the globe was transforming. A drone was being headlined with space for cameras attached, electric cars and passenger during this year’s Fair Consumer Electronics according to Marcio Alaor.
The Electric Cars
One of the major attractions in the electronics fair was electronic cars which are currently the trend of the automotive sector. Marcio Alaor, the final version of the Chevrolet Bolt was introduced by GM back in 2017. The aim is that the car will be on sale by the end of this year at an initial price of $30,000.
The Smart Home
The cameras which Sfas were connected and attached to almost everything were also the new objects. For example when you wanted to purchase milk at the grocery store and can’t remember if there the refrigerator will always send you a picture of the interior and help you solve the problem.
The 184 Ehang Drone
Some of the major attractions during the CES 2016 were the drones. However, none of the drones have been acclaimed as the Ehang 184 which has been designed to be occupied by a passenger and provides us with the impression that cars which are flying have arrived finally.
It is not a must that you fly the drone, all you have to do is preprogram, sit back and enjoy your trip. Currently the flight capacity is only 23 minutes and capable of reaching a height of 3.5 kilometers. There are advance plans the Chienese firm will be coming up with a control center which will be able to take command of the drone whenever there is need.

Facebook is probably one of the most popular websites in the world right now and it is definitely the leader in social media. If you don’t have a Facebook account in today’s social climate you are considered at least a little bit ‘odd’. With so much going on in Facebook, from status updates to videos and photos, you can feel like your data and contributions are getting lost. However, your messages are clearly getting seen. In fact, according to Status Labs CEO Darius Fisher, the posts you make on social media could lead directly to problems in the work place. Status Labs is a reputation management company that compiled a list of tips for Facebook users who want to keep their professional life secure while still engaging with Facebook.
Assume your comments are public.
The easiest way to keep your Facebook page from landing you in any hot water, according to Status Labs, is to make the assumption that all of your posts are public and can be read by potential colleagues and bosses. Does this thought make you uncomfortable? Well, if you make a habit of making controversial or divisive statements then it very well could. Darius Fisher suggests using this line of thinking before making a potentially controversial post in order to double check if you really should make the comment.
Create a public profile.
Hiring managers WILL end up looking for your social media accounts during the hiring process. Just about anyone who has a vested interest in you will eventually try to find you on Facebook. SO make their job easier by creating a public Facebook page that is MEANT to be found. This public page will let you put your best foot forward. Upload a professional headshot, network with similar professionals and colleagues, and keep your posts at least tangentially related to your industry. Nothing will make a hiring manager happy like seeing a potential employee with their presence under control.
